Is it a fake

MeMe
Something is wrong with this photo. Foreground is flat calm, so this must be a tsunamis or some other tidal wave.
BUT if you look at the Yacht (too big to be called a motor boat) and then the bouys the scale seems all wrong. The line at the base of the "wave" is too straight, more like an horizon.
The yacht and wave go together, but put that wave on a rough sea and it would look right.
I think someone has been playing with a picture editor.
I could be wrong, and that would not be the first time.

This picture is seen often on the west coast of the US. I don't know if it's the truth, but the story is that the boat was leaving a harbor against advice and this was the result when crossing the bar. The captain of the boat is the actor, George C. Scott. I can't remember what the outcome was, but he obviously survived and I think the boat did also. Maybe someone know the full story?
