Question Mental Ray and Odd Water Reflections

Hello all, I have a question regarding mental ray, the ocean sharer and reflections generated by the combination.

The attached render*see below* has some issues right now, one being the reflections are way out of control. I have lowered the reflection settings on the ocean shader, but it does not seem to fix the reflections that shine on the boat. What are causing these odd circular reflections?



I am rendering using Light and Sky, mentral ray with final gathering.

Thank you!

The clouding? It looks like final gather noise. What FG settings are you using?

Eureka! Bumping up my final gathering accuracy from 10 to 100 did the trick, it removed the odd clouding.

Thank you jtheninja!
