The category is only for ships which are under repair or conversion. They can be at a specialised facility (e.g. drydock, floating dock, synchrolift, patent slip, marine railway) on a shore site intended for the purpose, alongside a suitable berth, or undergoing significant work afloat.
Photos of vessels conducting minor repairs, routine maintenance or laid up afloat, or not at a repair facility (e.g. on a river bank/beach or at a cargo berth) should be uploaded to the appropriate ship category, following the relevant general and category site standards Vessels which do not qualify for inclusion in the ship-type categories (e.g. because they are small leisure craft) must not be uploaded. Photos showing ship damage but not yet under repair should be included in the Causalities category
