From: BruceI'm not convinced that it's a container ship. If you look at an a better image of a container ship like this one in Boston harbor you'll see how the patterns of the different colored containers are different. Oil tankers like this one also in Boston harbor are a bit more likely since they have similar colors (the pipes) running from bow to stern. Given it's markings I'm more inclined to say it might be an LNG (liquified natural gas) tanker or similar sort of tanker since that dark stripe up the middle seems to indicate a symmetric structure of some sort.
