Floating dry dock. A small ship seen out of the water inside a floating dry dock. The dock sits almost completely submerged while a ship is parked above it, then large ballast tanks are emptied and the dock rises so the ship is lifted out of the water. This allows repairs and inspections to the hull of a ship in a remote location without the need for a permanent dry dock facility. The ship seen here is the Yevgeny Khorov, and ocean-going rescue tug of the Russian Navy. Photographed at Baltiysk, Russia.
