Funnily enough, I've already been running a width-19 bilaterally symmetric 2c/7d gfind search for a few CPU hours now (but I started it well before you posted). I'll post if it finds anything, but I'd imagine ships probably don't exist until width 21 or 23.

EDIT: I was correct in my guess — there are no bilaterally-symmetric ships at width 19. Gfind output:

Code: Select all

Unfortunately, I did not think to keep the longest partial. If anyone else wants to run the width-21 and/or 23 searches, feel free — it seems like they might be worthwhile, but I don't have the patience or the CPU time to spare at the moment.
