The shipping and dry docking industries may actually be compared to two sides of the same coin, with the each side of the coin being dependent on the other for its very existence. The seafarers, within the different sectors of the marine industry, always need the practical experience and attributes of the ship construction or repair yard and its drydocking facilities, while the docking fraternity provide the safety and security crutch to keep the ships well maintained and classed.
This book by D. J. House has been solely dedicated to the drydocking of vessels. The author of the volume did his best to address such the important areas as dry docking operations, different types of the docks, proper procedures to follow when drydocking the ship, established safety procedures to be followed as necessary, dry dock stability issues; in addition, docking and marine measurement terminology as well as conversion equivalents of common units have been provided.
Finally, last chapters of this book cover dry dock legislation and material/steelwork management. Definitely very needful publication for the persons engaged in drydocking operations, either dry dock workers or crew members of the vessel intended to be docked.
