The dock or docking is a position where the ship will go through the maintenance or repair process. In the shipping world, many language terms are used, one of which is the word doc or docking. What does the dock or docking mean? Dock or docking has the meaning of a condition where a ship is on the dock or boat ramps for maintenance or repairs. The docking or docking process is assisted by supporting facilities which are commonly referred to as shipyards. In fact, in a broader scope, the dock or docking is not only a repair process but also the process of building a new ship walsh boat landing.
So until now, how many types of docks are there?
There are several methods used by shipyards in several regions to dock or docking, including, shipyards that are made on a foundation with a certain tilt angle that leads to water, equipped with bearings in the form of lorries or rails, so that the ship can be mounted on bearings and pulled up following the foundation until absolutely the entire hull was above the water. To pull the ship from the surface of the water, a crane and steel rope were used through a rail that protruded into the water at a certain inclination to the edge of the water which was not disturbed by the tides of the seawater.
Apart from using the rail media to pull ships from the waters to the mainland, several shipyards in several regions in Indonesia also use the media of airbags or airbags. The basic material of an airbag or airbag in the form of rubber layers is more precisely called a synthetic-cord-reinforced rubber layer, which is a type of airbag or cylindrical airbag with hemispherical outer edges. Everything is vulcanized together, then compressed air is put in which allows the airbag or airbag to rotate or roll. Other equipment to support the docking process with the airbag system is almost the same as the supporting equipment used in the slipway docking process or pull-out docks with rail media, such as with the help of a crane and steel rope.
