The standard currently reads:
Quote
Exceptions to the full ship rule will apply only if the image shows parts of a ship not normally seen, for example propellers, bow thrusters, bulbous bows and rudders

Photos of a ship with the view partially obstructed by dock gates and/or shore equipment will be accepted, if a significant part of the ship is visible.

Should it be made clear that the general standard on Obstructions does not apply where the obstruction is part of the repair activity and a substantial part of the vessel can be seen?

Hello All

I think the wording is fine. Asuggesting might be to conbine Ships in Drydock and Patent slip photos into one ctogory.

Best Wishes

I think present standard is fine, has to be rather loosely looked at for the sake of seeing things which often is totally impossible to see for most people here.

The text as is is fine but I am wondering whether this category should also include ships under repair.

At that occasion I posted a close-up shot of her propeller, and that was deleted because the ship was not in drydock....
