The problem of building ships by assembling them from parts in a dry or floating dock arose in the mid-fifties with the increased demand for large ships. The majority of ships built this way are constructed in two 'halves' on longitudinal stocks. After the foreship has been launched as the second part of the two, both parts are joined in a dry dock. Dry docks can also be used for building hulls of ships with parameters exceeding those of the dry dock. In such cases the hull of a ship is built either without the bow part, or without the bow part and side tanks.
