Here's a question that I don't actually know the answer to, but I would be interested to learn.
"What is the largest vessel to have been launched complete from a slipway?"
I had thought that 250,000 dwt was about the top limit, but I learned form a thread in the Tankers forum that the two sister ships "La Santa Maria" and "Al Andalus" were slipway launched in Spain in the mid '70s at 363,000 dwt. Does anyone know of anything bigger?
