Ship Launch | 10 Awesome Waves, FAILS and CLOSE CALLS

Compilation of the best satisfying ship launch videos I recorded including some surprising clips like the amphibious vehicles or the inclined planes at the Elblag Canal. The awesome sideways ship launches take place in Leer, Germany and Westerbroek, The Netherlands. The biggest ship in this video was launched in Flensburg, Germany.

 This is amazing. Always thought they launch by sliding into the water backward like that ferry launch. Didn't know they can do it sideways. You learn something everyday :)  This was FASCINATING to watch; completely hypnotic. I kept waiting for the people to get soaked with the waves, and they barely moved. That's precision - to know EXACTLY where the wash from the wave is going to stop on the road. Impressive stuff, must be pretty cool to see it launch after having worked on/built the ship. The perfect merge between nature and technology. I wanna take a ride on a boat one day.
