The reasons for a ship to undergo periodical drydocking and repairs are scrutinized and a method to determine the most economic period between the docking is put forward. Forced drydocking and repairs are also discussed. Problems connected with drydocking, especially of large size tankers, are reviewed and possible solutions to some of them presented. Possibilities for mechanization of works in dry dock and handling of material are discussed and experiences from trials made are presented. Suggestions for future docks and specialized repair yards are given.
