According to what I just watched on YouTube, there are really only 2 ways to put a ship into water. You either drop it in (for lifeboats and other small watercraft) or you slide it in. Now, there are 2 ways (also according to what I’ve just watched on YouTube) that you can slide a ship into water. You can have it go in one end first and gradually have the whole ship in water, or you can push the entire ship from one of its sides and watch as the ship violently rocks back and forth waiting for buoyancy to take over.

And that second option is very exciting to watch! So click inside to see some impressive videos of big things staying afloat!
