This gravity-defying optical illusion has my brain baffled

If you've visited Creative Bloq before, you probably already know that we're a sucker for a good old optical illusion. We've seen so many designs from rotating horses to Holbein's spooky painting, but we love an accidental mind-boggler. 

It's not news that boats float, right? That's pretty much the entire point of a ship after all. However, people have spotted a boat that looks like it's literally suspended in the air kind of floating (see below). If you're feeling inspired by all this illusion talk, then make sure you check out our roundup of all our favourite optical illusions.
