MCA has a database of coded boats at http://www.mcga.gov.uk/c4mca/mcga-su...l_database.htm

Don't know how up to date it is, but you could start there.

Hi Ian,

Would have to say not very up to date.
Ramsgate shows only one coded vessel and its not mine

Cheers

Jon,

I think that to be on the database of coded boats you have to request to be on it - the MCA don't automatically put you on it.

The MCA list is the most complete one I've found, and as you can see, it';s sh*te.

Jon, I haven't treied this, but how about a search on MARS database for 235xxxxxx MMSIs. Would that give a sort of workable list from a different perspective?

good idea but MARS does not indicate if the vessel is coded

Cheers

Indeed, but my understanding is that Ofcom generally issue MMSIs with a 235 prefix , in preference to 232, 3 or 4, where they know the boat is commercial. I've never tested that, but it does apply to all the boats that I've had coded. It probably isn't a great match, but might give more than the MCA database. Just a thought.
