We have decided to combine the category "Ships in Dry Dock" with its subcategory for vessels on "Patent Slips etc" into a single category "Ships under repair or conversion"  At the same time we have broadened it to include photos of repair/conversion work going on afloat.  In summary:

The category is only for ships which are under repair or conversion. They can be at a specialised facility (e.g. drydock, floating dock, synchrolift, patent slip, marine railway) on a shore site intended for the purpose, alongside a suitable berth, or undergoing significant work afloat.

Photos of vessels conducting minor repairs, routine maintenance or laid up afloat, or not at a repair facility (e.g. on a river bank/beach or at a cargo berth) should be uploaded to the appropriate ship category, following the relevant general and category site standards Vessels which do not qualify for inclusion in the ship-type categories (e.g. because they are small leisure craft) must not be uploaded. Photos showing ship damage but not yet under repair should be included in the Causalities category

Please read the full FAQ/Guidance Note (which contains a couple of links that look wrong, but do work - and will be sorted):

All members' photos that were in "Drydocks" are already in the new category, and the "Patent Slip" photos will also be moved there shortly, so there is no need to make individual moves.

If you have any questions or uncertainties about this please raise them here.
