Tech/Engineering - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / docking
Spanish term or phrase: tacada
From a maritime vessel manual from Spain for translation to British English.

I assume the term means the blocks/structures that sit under the vessel and support it when it is dry dock.

"En dique, siguiendo el método marítimo tradicional, descansando la quilla y el resto de la carena en las tacadas situadas en el lecho del dique."
