Resolute at Pier 25-26

The cable layer Resolute put in to pier 25-26 last night, likely to avoid the bad weather passing through the area. Rain and fog don't count as bad weather for ships - only for ship photographers - but high winds and high seas make cable laying (and herring fishing) difficult if not impossible.

Finally we get to see the impressive stern of Resolute with its multiple sheaves, and the highly visible graphics. They seem to mark the angle to which the cable is being fed from the ship, measured in degrees from the horizontal.
