Garden in former graving dock, Broad Landing
The classic form of dry dock, properly known as graving dock, is a narrow basin, usually made of earthen berms and concrete, closed by gates or by a caisson, into which a vessel may be floated and the water pumped out, leaving the vessel supported on blocks.

The keel blocks as well as the bilge block are placed on the floor of the dock in accordance with the 'docking plan' of the ship. Routine use of dry docks is for the 'graving' i.e. the cleaning, removal of barnacles and rust, and re-painting of ships' hulls.
