I can see the lines as well and they do distract.

However, the angles and lines give my eyes lots to do and it makes me interested in the subject. I like the little tad of background image we have - the other boats, water, shoreline - which add to the overall feel of the picture.

I like contrasty black and white shots, so I would bump it +7 or so contrast, just to get that feel to it, but overall I like the image a lot.

The vertical strips in the sky seem very odd.
