The magnificent `Sea Quest`, built by Harland & Wolff, Belfast.   :)

A tremendous feat of Engineering, by any means. Launched off a traditional slipway, it was one of Harland & Wolff's greatest achievements and one of shipbuildings greatest ever achievements. Only in later years, was this tremendous feat of Engineering truly appreciated.  :)

An amazing thing. I heard that they used two slipways, is that right?

According to the authorive history of Harland & Wolff, 'Shipbuilders to the World', by Moss & Hume, 'Sea Quest' was launched down 3 slipways, one for each leg. A truly amazing feat of Engineering, bar none.  :)

Yes Jim, She was launched down three slipways as you say. I didn't attend the launch as I was in India at that time. I remember my Father telling me about a slight `wobble` when she was launched, but apart from that, it went according to plan. A truly remarkable feat of Engineering.  :)

The tanker `Myrina`, built by Harland & Wolff, Belfast. At the time of her launch in 1968, she was the first Supertanker in the World and the largest ship under the German Flag.   :)

A beautiful vessel, sadly built too late for the South American passenger trade.  :(
