Usually the water is drained, and the ship is repaired and built in the ship. After it is completed, the water is filled up, then the gate is opened, and the ship is towed out. Large tonnage ships For example, aircraft carriers are manufactured in dry docks, and the berths have moving mechanisms. Ships are built on them. After the ship is launched, the ship is directly pushed down. Small tonnages such as destroyer frigates are built in this way.
