Watch: Ship Launch Creates Huge Wave, Scares Spectators
The launch of the ship “FULDABORG” at the Ferus Smit shipyard in Leer, Germany in 2012 didn’t turn out well for the spectators when a huge wave created from the launch scared them away, leaving a few drenched.
Mini-tsunami type waves are quite common during such ship launches. People should have kept safe distance while watching, or the shipyard personnel must have informed them regarding the same. Luckily no one was seriously injured or hurt.

Only a few days ago, the launch of the “Reggeborg” (170 meters long) took place at the Ferus Smit shipyard. I think the wave was a bit higher. But luckily no one got wet (except the camera): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fjFbHVaGNIk
