I think asking for a level of symmetry that some people in this thread are asking for would make the picture, like most, look unnatural and boring. The picture is much more interesting with differing ropes and boats.

It also seems to be typical for people to overanalyze composure, especially when it comes to the rule of 2/3. People tend to spend a lot of time making their subject follow the rule of 2/3 that they end up wasting 2/3 of the picture.

Exactly !
