    Valves Renewals, Repairs or valve to shop are stated accordingly.

    Hello all members!

    Valves Renewals, Repairs or valve to shop are stated accordingly.

    What is the meaning of the phrase in bold type?

    Does valve to shop mean valve which will be taken to workshop?

    Thank you.

    The sentence is taken from a repair specification.

    Context:

    SEA INLET AND DISCHARGE VALVES
    Open, overhaul and lap the sea chest valves and overboard valves for owner representative and class survey inspection.
    Acees work intended included in quotation below
    Make a new gasket and box up all valves in good order.
    Renew all gland packing. Renew corroded and defective bolts, nuts and studs. As found necessary all materials to be supplied by yard.

    I suspect that your interpretation is correct, but it is hard to be sure. The material you quoted appears to have been written by someone whose command of English is poor. There are so many errors and highly unusual usages that the exact meaning is difficult to determine.
