    Launch of 'Mendoya' (commercial freight ship?).

    Location of events unknown.

    People meeting; shaking hands. Girl gives bouquet to lady. CU champagne swinging on rope to smash against hull of ship; which begins to slide away. Really nice shot; starting as CU of ship; as it heads away; stays on it until boat slides into water.
