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.
The Port Authority will finish the deck removal portion of the Raise the Roadway project at the Bayonne Bridge six months ahead of schedule, ensuring completion of this important project in advance of commercial operations at the widened Panama Canal. The deck removal will provide critical navigational clearance for larger post-Panamax ships to access port terminals in New York and New Jersey when the Panama Canal opens.
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...

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 ...
