Then, and this is the most important and yet difficult to grasp argument: it’s quite obvious, even more so by watching the moving images, the objects appear to be specular surfaces reflecting light.
“Nevertheless, there’s something important regarding the first impression given by these reflections: one could think they reflect light in this way because they are significantly curved, but things do not work this way when the images are captured in non-trivial circumstances.”
“In the videos, there’s an extreme zoom and the angular size of the objects is of about 0.5 degrees, which equals a distance/size ratio of over 100. In these conditions a specular, convex surface would appear as a luminous point, as the reflected light would be scattered.”

I don't think so. Either it's a hoax, or it is not. The single zoom shot disproves the yacht theory, imo. They zoom out, it's a tiny object near the moon.
Certainly not on the water, and not near the spot on the map, either. Then they zoom back in, and you see this same object.
Also, unless the sea was perfectly calm every time they took the videos, there would be movement from the ocean's turbulence. We do not see this.
