This is of course passing beneath the Golden Gate Bridge at the entrance to San Francisco Bay. This ship is a regular caller, and brings steel from Korea to Pittsburg, CA for refining at the USS/Posco plant. These vessels operate under very restrictive air emission regulations that were required by the State to meet air quality requirements. The result is that their engines are very unreliable, and there have been a number of incidents and near misses with this class of ship.
