We include fer­ ries, tugs, dredges, etc., if they have been reported to us. The extended navigation season this year means that some ships are still operating, and for them we give anticipated lay-up ports, if known. Some ships come and go from lay-up during winter; our listings were current as of date of observa­ tion but may not remain so throughout the entire winter.
