We include ferries, tugs, large dredges, etc., only if they have been re­ ported to us and identified as such. We normally do not include scows, fish­ boats, derricks, small workboats, etc. In the case of some ports, particu­ larly those of the St. Lawrence River, ships come and go from lay-up during the winter; our listings are correct as of date of observation but may not be exact as of subsequent dates.
