"GALILEO GALILEI" in Drydock, her formidable front and ship's particulars. Dry docks are used for Building, maintenance and repair of all sorts of vessels, older ships normally require a visit to dry dock every two years, as for newer ships they could go on what is usually called a "refit" between 3 to 5 years, but of course all depends on the ship. During the process of dry docking ships are taken out of the water so that all surfaces and external machinery can be repaired, worked on or just monitored, today an average dry docking lasts for two weeks.
