Building a Container Ship

Made for TV documentary on the building of the Eugen Maersk.

Good video of the diesel engine alignment and installation, including
a brief look at the fantastically large crank shaft.
Check out the propeller and propeller shaft. You can see the prop shaft was turned between centers on what must be and absolutely GIGANTIC ship yard lathe.
Worth the ten minute view time if this sort of thing remotely gets your metal working juices flowing. Dave

Here is the second posted part:

It includes seating the propeller using the world's biggest washer and nut. And installing the drive shaft.
This ship is huge and estimated to be able to handle 15,000 shipping containers all at once. Dave
