Un-named or Unregistered vessels

In Trips, there are situations where either the vessel name or the vessel registration is not applicable. In these situations, either one may be left empty (but not both). Upon SAVE, the empty field will be automatically set to the value of the other field. Be aware that a vessel's registration is unique to that vessel (No two vessels have the same registration) so typing "Noreg" or "Unreg" is the Registration may result in obtaining incorrect details, as that "registration" may have been used elsewhere.

After Saving the vessel will appear on the Active Log (Trips)

Some Search Notes

  • When searching select Strict or Fuzzy Search:

    • Strict searches for exact match.
    • Fuzzy searches all instances of search term.
  • When searching for MA vessels do not put a space between RED and the Number

  • The Marine Assist Database is included in TripWatch, so Strict searching for “RED123” will find that vessel, but not find “RED 123”.

  • A record of any previously logged vessel will be saved by TripWatch.

  • Next time vessel logs on the vessels details should be discovered by the Search function.

  • If the record of a previously logged vessel is incorrect you can tell TripWatch to delete the incorrect record by clicking “Forget”.
