If a standard shipping container will hold some 64,000 pounds, that would be the equivalent of less than 100 containers. Any old small feeder container ship could be used and sailed to LA, San Francisco, New York, London or Rotterdam. Once close it could be sunk and exploded....


I don't see how this would be more effective than sailing a containership with 2 kilotons of explosives into the harbour and exploding it there.
I believe a "tsunami bomb" is only interesting in wartime, when you CAN'T sail into the enemy harbour.
Even then, it would require a level of air superiority that would make it possible to bomb the enemy city at will.
I'm not entirely certain a tsunami bomb really makes any kind of sense.
