At each stop (Xboat station), the Xboat is routinely checked, refuelled, reprovisioned, and sometimes recrewed. Ultimately, however, the Xboat must undergo maintenance and possible repair after the rigors of its mission. The way station performs this function.
Way stations have stocks of scout-oriented repair and
maintenance equipment, as well as trained staffs of service personnel.
They are the equivalent of naval bases,
although they are capable of servicing only smaller tonnage ships (10.000
tons and less) due to the size and orientation of their facilities. -ld
