Thanks for your praise! If you really will go for this task in the 
future: I had to use a very fine spacing to get more or less realistic 
reflective caustics at the boats, the refractive caustics at the sea 
bottom are cheaper. I ended up with some 8 hours of Photon-collection 
and a photon file of about 16 GB with 9 GB peak memory use during the 
photon collection. In the final rendering the peak memory use was 23 GB RAM.

Best regards
