Nice shots!

I believe the polarizer work best when you have the sun (and better still at a sharp angle...). In the dull (grey) shot the sun was only shining on a small part of the beach background. I think increasing the saturation in Photoshop will also bring in more color, and adding a yellow cast have a sun shining effect:

Thanks for the comments:

Is a polerizer the best thing for shoot the action shot I want to take? SHould I not use it or use something else?

Are their better camera settings that would prevent the gray?(WB? spot?)

I prefer to get the best out of the camera when I can.

Actually polarizers are not optimized for action shot, since you're losing several f-stop depending on the filter...

What it does is eliminate the reflection from the water and increase the contrast/saturation, but only work in bright sunshine. On overcast or Hazy days the effect is much less... See my Carribean pictures on the Landscape thread...

This is probably my smallest boat/water picture that I have:

... Also it looks like you're shooting from a moving boat so do't forget to re-adjust for the shooting angle. You should see the effect in the EVF after you rotate the polarizer from a stationary position, but as you pan the camera left and right the effect lessen!
