Understandable. The view from the ship is amazing but the vessels are really too big for the the canal.

The RN used to conduct first of class shock trials at Rosyth but they ceased many years ago (although if memory serves, Invincible did undergo such a trial).  I don't think they ever got to 40,000 lb of explosive, but it was a pretty loud bang.  Probably one of the reasons they were stopped, along with the ever-present issue of .  And the fact that ships stopped being built to full military specs, so probably wouldn't stand the shock anyway.  {:-{
