If the cost of Elbe 17 is the same as the cost of dry-docking the Bismarck twice, great, but what is the cost of dry docking the Bismarck...

If you mean that you can fit two Bismarcks in Elbe 17. Hardly... The Bismarck was 820 feet 4 inches in length and 118 feet 1 inch wide. To fit two Bismarcks, Elbe 17 would have to be 1,650 feet long or 250 feet wide. about the only way to fit two Bismarcks in Elbe 17 is to cut them up into itty bitty pieces.
