    78 feet wider than Panamax. Incredible that these ships are now being produced by the ROK. To think 60 years ago the only building of any size that remained standing in Seoul was the train station. Most of Korea really DID look like southern California as seen in M*A*S*H after being stripped by the Japanese. In the short time I was there I was shocked to see skyscrapers go from foundation pour to completion in a matter of months, springing up like daisies.
