The artifacts in the picture are more interesting that the purported monster.

Interesting but not exactly conclusive.

Could be debris. In fact it probably is.

looks like a normal boat shape with a motor on the back to me. the motor is causing the three little waves.

maybe the loch ness monster has bought himself a boat.

Looks like a boat to me.

Actually I thought they were talking about the image to the left.

Would a boats wake create that sort of image contrast?

Those look like contrails, or whatever the nautical equivilent is. Prop wash.

I'd be more concerned by the long, underwater mass to the right of the boat...

Form where I am sitting, here in Scotland I can tell you not to get too concerned. Nessie was one of the best marketing efforts ever devised. ;) ;) :)

Is the news really this pathetic to talk about a boat sighting on Google Earth?

Yesterday I saw an Alien on Google Street View, standing outside a house in Phoenix Arizona. It looked like those little man with the big heads you always see in Alien reports.

However on closer look it turned out to be a deer from some christmas decoration.

Oh and by the way, if you did not know: Nessies family is visiting New York right now. [maps.google.nl]

LOL - looking for some Nessie facts, I found this lovely front cover scan on Google Books! [books.google.co.uk]

Nessie was one of the best marketing efforts ever devised.

Well, history (and Google) records the first sighting back to 565AD [google.co.uk]

The marketing department must have been up extra early.. ;-)

It's not the boat they are talking about. As Wyweb says they are talking about the image to the left of the boat. The boat is clearly anglers trolling on the Loch. Trolling is a method of fishing where two rods with trailing lures are placed out from port and star board side with another at the stern. It's popular on Scottish lochs and I believe the great lakes in north America.

(Either that or Nessie is giant squid!) :)
