three cards from Flying Twigs on a mood board

I put three images in a mood board. The boat on the right is a crop from a retirement greeting card we are working on.

As you can see, the sea is translucent, not opaque. We can see into the sea and we can see the bottom of the boat. I followed my nose when I was making it. Now that it is done, the translucent sea makes me feel slightly uneasy. It seems like there is nothing holding the boat up. Is that a good metaphor for retirement?
