  1. I see an overturned boat with a shark circling around and people observing it all. Reminds me of the movie “Jaws.”

  2. While the boat looks swamped I don’t understand how the sails are still up and what the man behind the sails is doing.

  3. I think the sailboat is OK. Man in larger boat has hooked a very large ray and it’s the ray calling the shots at the moment.

  4. Claude Kenneson. You may be right. “Jaws” may be the right track for this. Which Jaws movies were filmed in Florida?

  5. someone on the front boat is holding part of the sail. and there
    is a #7 on the windshield of the boat like a race. But I do believe it is a making of a movie.
