Refutation of Loch Ness Monster Hoax Photo Claim, Part two

This problem has a more personal angle this time. I had earlier printed a version of the "Surgeon's Photo" of the Loch Ness Monster in 1934 showing how a Plesiosaur's skull fit into the head of the monster. I learnt last night that Dick Raynor implied I had to distort the Plesiosaur's skull to fit into the head of the monster in the photo.

I'd like to call him on that cheap shot.
I'd like to do this again from the beginning with a fresh and unbiased Plesiosaur skull. To Whit:

A reliable replica cast from a commercial outlet http://www.dinostar.com/oldsite/temp/fossil-replicas/dinosaur-reproductions/skulls/plesiosaur-skull-84.html

And use this fossil skull replica in the same experiment.
Here is the Biggest and most high quality version of the photo I could gert on my photosearch, from thedigitalcelt: http://www.thedigitalcelt.com/on-this-day-may-2-1933-loch-ness-monster-sighted/

 Here is the overlay. The skull had to be tipped forward slightly owing to the way the head is held:
 

 
And this is the close-up. I believe this dispenses with Mr. Raynor and his dubious criticisms for this particular unwarranted slur against me on this particular occasion.

  1. What a surprise! Avowed and consistent Nessie skeptic (researcher) Dick Raynor is going to find fault in any Loch Ness Monster proposition, even a supposedly hoaxed photo. Which by his own conclusion the Surgeon's is one.
