Interesting video, I enjoy watching that type of thing.
As an apprentice I serviced large straight eight engines with pistons 12" diameter, inlet valves were 5" diameter and they red lined at 400 rpm. They drove 12 cylinder swashplate (cranklesss) pumps with 10" pistons to pump Sydney's town gas. But that would be small fry compared to the large ship engines.

They don't seem to have any problems getting the rocker box on!
