    Goldie I have set another IMO member the task of reserching that for the summer. but he has run into a staggering lack of info, it is complicated by the cassion floatin around which will have to be disposed of while new doors are built and installed assuming that there is no major damage to the cills ect
    BUt I reckon that sometime, somewhere there must be a survey of the damage , if there is not , then that is just more criminal neglect on behalf of sucessive goverments.

    Just a thought, but any future Larger vessel may be curtailed in size by the fact that the normal drydock used by the Naval service in Cork Dockyard has a graving dock that measures 164.4m x 21.3m x 8.2m.
    What's wrong with Dublin?
    How big are the Drydocks in Dublin?

    As an aside, What would it take to get the Graving dock in Haulbowline operational? It is similar in size to that in Cork Dockyard..

    Goldie, before you waste valuable bandwith with your reply, he means as a drydock .

    Those dimensions give loads of capacity for the future!

    Drydocking?

    Just a thought, but any future Larger vessel may be curtailed in size by the fact that the normal drydock used by the Naval service in Cork Dockyard has a graving dock that measures 164.4m x 21.3m x 8.2m. A floating dock with a lift capacity of 2,000 tons is also available. Any vessel intending to use either of the above needs to be smaller than those dimensions. In Practice only smaller vessels such as the peacocks use the floating dock.
