The USS Fitzgerald is now in Yokosuka’s dry dock 4, where officials will conduct a full assessment and decide the next step for the damaged destroyer. Seven sailors were killed in a June 17 collision between the Fitzgerald and a Philippine-flagged cargo ship, about 64 miles southwest of the naval base. Officials will “conduct assessments that will inform options for long term repairs,” a Navy statement said Monday. They are trying to determine if the Fitzgerald is able to travel to the states under its own power or will need to be towed there for repairs.

BAE Systems Ship Repair in Norfolk, Virginia has performed the first ever tandem drydocking of two U.S. Navy Aegis Guided Missile Destroyers. Both of the massive ships now rest back to back, out of the water, on one drydock. During a 19-hour technical and engineering feat, about 160 BAE Systems employees guided the USS Mason (DDG 87) and the USS Bulkeley (DDG 84) onto the Titan Drydock. The Titan is the largest floating drydock on the East Coast, measuring 950 feet long and 160 feet wide, with a lift capacity of 52,000 tons. Each ship is more than 500 feet long and 65 feet wide, and each weighs approximately 9,200 tons. The two destroyers are scheduled to stay on the drydock until the end of April, where they will undergo a series of routine repairs and modifications for the Navy.
A drydock (also commonly dry dock) is a narrow basin or vessel that can be flooded to allow a load to be floated in, then drained to allow that load to come to rest on a dry platform. Drydocks are used for the construction, maintenance, and repair of ships, boats, and other watercraft. Among the logistical marvels employed by the U.S. Navy in the Pacific were various kinds of floating dry docks. These were towed to advanced bases by tugs and came in a variety of sizes. At the time war broke out in the Pacific, the Navy had three steel floating dry docks. One, YFD-2, was assigned to Pearl Harbor and was occupied by destroyer Shaw when the harbor was attacked on 7 December 1941. Both destroyer and drydock were badly damaged but subsequently repaired. Another, Dewey, was at Olongapo and was...

The USS Constellation enters dry-dock at Coast Guard Yard Baltimore Oct. 22, 2014. The ship will undergo maintenance and receive repairs to a 4,000-square-foot portion of its wooden hull. USS Constellation, constructed in 1854, is a sloop-of-war and the second United States Navy ship to carry the name. According to the US Naval Registry the original frigate was disassembled on 25 June 1853 in Gosport Navy Yard in Norfolk, Virginia, and the sloop-of-war was constructed in the same yard. Constellation is the last sail-only warship designed and built by the US Navy. Despite being a single-gundeck "sloop", she is actually larger than her frigate namesake, and more powerfully armed with fewer but much more potent shell-firing guns. -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Constellation_(1854) Video...
The USS Intrepid moved from Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair Corp. to Staten Island Homeport Pier today. The date coincides with the 63rd anniversary of D-Day, one of the most momentous events of World War II. Workers at Bayonne Dry Dock & Repair Company pressure-washed, primed and applied 5,600 gallons of battleship gray paint to the 900-foot-long aircraft carrier. They also removed the four bronze propellers that dug into the mud and delayed Intrepid's trip to New Jersey in November. Four tug boats hauled the boat from Bayonne earlier today without incident. While at Staten Island's Homeport Pier, workers will outfit the ship with new interactive exhibits and displays, "the high tech, whiz bang, the wow," said White. The ship will then return to its permanent home at a refurbished Pier 8...

Yokosuka Naval Base is home to some of the oldest dry docks in the world, and after 140 years, these 19th century, French-style dry docks are still being used today by the U.S. Navy and Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force as they bring in a ship for regular scheduled maintenance.
On August 15, 1944 the mighty battleship Idaho arrived at Espiritu Santo in the Pacific and slipped into a floating dry dock so that emergency repairs could be made to the ship's blisters. This special film -- likely made by the crew of the battleship's observation aircraft -- documents the activities as the ship is maneuvered into position. The dry dock shown is likely one of the Large Auxiliary Floating Dry Docks (AFDB), probably AFDB/ABSD-1. This was constructed in sections during 1942 and 1943 at Everett Shipbuilding Co., Everett, WA., by the Chicago Bridge & Iron Co., Eureka, CA., the Pollack-Stockton Shipbuilding Co., Stockton, CA.., and Chicago Bridge & Iron Co., Morgan City, LA. During World War II ABSD-1 was assigned to the Asiatic-Pacific Theater and towed to Espiritu Santo in ...
SAN DIEGO (May 19, 2017) The littoral combat ship USS Montgomery (LCS 8) enters dry dock for Post Shakedown Availability (PSA) at San Diego Ship Repair.
