Thanks.......I'll include them.  Assembling the database is going to take some time, and it's intended to be a work in progress.

Added Frabelle Shipyards of Navotas to the database. 

One of the FB honeypot members reports the BRP Emilio Jacinto being docked there for yard work.

No known website at this time.

One article (http://unitedfilipinoseafarers.com.ph/frabelle-expands-navotas-shiprepair-facility/) seems to indicate that the facilities include two 26 meter slipways, one 48 meter floating drydock, and one 91 meter floating drydock.  The facility seems more geared toward ship repair, rather than ship construction.
