I can understand both comments. Not necessarily agree, but I 'get it'. You could bring down the steps and maybe the sky on the upper left, to push the eye towards the ship and the mooring lines. Compositionally, for me, It held me between those two angles, that of the steps and the lines. With the tone of the steps, I agree, it did become somewhat strong as I looked longer, but at first glance, they were rails leading my eye to the ship. A crop from the left would just be less, but not better. It would center the ship, and that would weaken the image.
I think PP is the fix. The steps running out, somewhat juxtaposed to the mooring lines, are connected by the white hull stripe, delineated by the dark blue (black?) hull paint. Yup, I believe it is a tonal issue. I would pay particular attention to bringing down the stone deck area to the left. I would not crop it, but I would bring it down to enhance the line of the step. It may reveal the 'z' pattern I am referring to with the steps/hull/mooring lines.
Go play with it and come back. Then lets see what happens.
