USE OF THE SYSTEM
From the initial search screen you can search for vessels by the IMO Number,
Current Ship Name or Flag.
The search default for the Current Ship Name is begins with, for example typing
in ‘carni’ will find ‘carnival’. An option exists to do pattern searches by
using the % symbol, which will allow multiple strings to be searched for. For
example typing in ‘%oriana’ will find ‘Oriana’ as well as ‘Victoriana’.
Similarly typing in ‘c%’ will find all ships starting with the letter C. Again
typing in ‘is%la’ will not only find ‘Island’ but also ‘Isabella’.
Once you have entered a value click on the 'Go' button. The IMO Number search
will return the results to the vessel overview, whereas the Current Name and
Flag search will return matches to a results grid from where it is possible to
link to the vessel overview.
