And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

Studying config of carriers during WWII I noticed that only japanese  tried funnel out of island. in my opinion funnel in the opposite side to island looks sensible for the sake of balance. In the same way, exhausting sideways or downwards sounds sensible too.

Why these  aiternative dispositions were not continued?

Sea Launch had been launching satellites off the back of a converted oil rig for a number of years before they went bankrupt.
