The process of docking and undocking of ships might not seem like an important operation. However, it’s a process that is carried out more than once, not only by shipbuilding yards during the construction of a ship, but also as regular part of the ship’s lifetime.
The understanding of the process of docking is specialised, and hence, not many naval architects or engineers are thorough with the inner details of docking. Professionals who are specialised in carrying out docking and undocking of ships are commonly known as Dock Masters.
