Curiously enough, I don't think this is a Superior Mirage. There is no distortion near the bottom of the boat, which is what I would expect with a mirage. The photographer, David Morris, seems to have a better idea of what caused this- it is a 'false horizon', the result of different colours in the sea itself.

I spotted something similar the other day, (not a floating ship), the sea appeared to have two very distinct layers. The bottom layer was light grey and the top was almost like a wall of darker grey. Very odd. I see the sea every day and have never seen anything like it.
