... For hundreds of years, ingenious shipping engineering (and sometimes manpower too) has enabled some of the largest, heaviest, most cumbersome cargo to sail to where it needs to be. Here are some of the biggest things ever to be transported by sea.

Great read. Pan. I always marvel at some of the engineering feats today. I've seen a couple of them myself.
