    Hello,
    I know the meanings of each word but I can't understand it as a whole.
    Would you please be kind enough to clarify it to me?

    Thank you

    They quickly (in no time)​ launched the ship and were aboard.

    In my context "launch" means what?

    Launch = to move the ship out onto the water.
