Significance of "1,312"???
Somehow or other, while surfing around on the webz, I got into researching container ships (long story).
In the process I noticed that all of the largest container ships in the world are all exactly 1,312 feet long.
Does anyone know the significance of "1,312" feet?
Could it be the size of the locks in the Panama Canal? There must be some constraint which defines maximum length.
ETA - I just looked at the Panama Canal and it states the maximum boat length to be 1,200 feet, so that's not it. 1,312 feet is too big for the Panama Canal, so it must be something else.
