Edit the details of the ship

Before saving your changes, you can preview the modification by clicking the Preview tab, which is the middle tab underneath the title of the page.

By clicking the Changes tab, you are able to see the changes you have made to the text (on the right hand side) compared with the current, unedited version (on the left).
