Every now and then while riding the red line I'd see one coming in near Columbia Station. One filled the crescent of Carson Beach even though it was far away.

I wonder if what you saw was an LNG tanker. Now those things are truly gigantic (and they also require closing the Tobin Bridge - not because it might scrape the bottom but for terrorism reasons).

I have a unit in Charlestown Commerce Center. A few years ago, that huge mint-green LNG tanker was at the terminal across the river, and I was taking some photos from the parking lot. Within about 30 seconds a police officer approached and asked what I was doing. They take the security of those boats seriously!

I was on Castle Island and took a time lapse video as it passed by, I was one of maybe ten people on the island at around sunset, as they closed parking lot. I took a Hubway bike over and walked from the closest dock.
