Awesome Video Shows Us How A Ship Is Launched For The First Time





Ships, first and foremost, are built on land before they are actually launched on water.

Usually, a launch is witnessed by several people since they are really impressive to watch. It’s not an everyday occurrence and so in most cases, it is something that calls for a celebration.

Case in point, the video below.

Uploaded on YouTube by Dennis McMayer, this short footage shows us the M.V. Greenland being launched for the first time. It is a pretty intense to watch how the huge ship is pulled into the canal by a much smaller tugboat.

This is simply fascinating!

Naturally, the ship creates a massive splash once it hit the water, extending to the nearby farm as well as to curious onlookers from the left and right side.

It is really interesting to behold, especially when you consider the fact that the video is in real-time and not slowed down.
