After explaining the elements of hydrostatics and ship design necessary for an understanding of drydocking, the Author, of the U.S. Navy, describes in some detail the procedures used for drydocking in a U.S. naval shipyard. The procedures described include those for the preparation of the dock (including the blocking) and of the ship, the docking itself, arrangements for ship services, ship routine and safety precautions while in dock, and undocking. The responsibilities of both ship and dockyard personnel are defined, and lists are included of checks that are carried out before docking and before undocking.
