My house isn't that big. More like the size of apartment buildings :eek:

I grew up with both, excellent learning tools/toys!!

I sure would like to see that in slow motion.

Yeah it does go a bit too fast, I would like a bit more detail and a narrative.

Still cool as hell. :D

I've seen it first hand. After I got out of high school I want a change. I had been working for family in body shops for 5 years. I moved to New Orleans and went to work for Halter marine in Lockport. I worked there from 1995-2000. We built 3 kinds of ships a 200 ft supply boats, a oval shaped docking boat, and 200 ft yachts. We built ours upside down in sections then flipped them over and put them together on land. We didn't do the dry dock, we launched them. It is a very interesting process.

MAERSK has a weekly service calling at the Port of Seattle. While not that big of ship it is still very large.

MAERSK is the biggest container ship operator in the world.

Much of what you see and buy at your local Box stores mfg in Asia comes to
you via MAERSK and enter through the Ports on the West Coast.

I work on the waterfront in Seattle and Tacoma, WA

at 25 seconds they take it out of dry dock to get another ship out from behind it ???

That's not unusual, more efficient use of drydock space to build two or more vessels at a time.
