BoatWiki - Definitions


 Marine Information for Safety and Law Enforcement (MISLE) can be defined as a federal database that contains information on Coast Guard contacts with vessels operating in U.S. waters. It includes information on over 650,000 domestic and foreign flagged vessels, including those used for recreational and commercial purposes. Certain elements of such data are made available to the public through a system known as the Port State Exchange (PSIX).


MISLE is designed to store data on marine accidental and deliberate pollution and other vessel and port accidents in US territorial waters. It accounts for vessels and other facilities, like port terminals and shipyards. The database is maintained and administered by the U.S. Coast Guard. Their PSIX search module is free and easy to access online.


Information derived from MISLE through PSIX is of value to the boating community when it comes to identifying a particular vessel. It also provides some historical or background information with respect to its operations.


MISLE is not a conclusive source of information and the data returned by PSIX is minimal at best. However, it is definitely worth the effort to conduct this kind of search when trying to piece together the particulars of a specific boat. A link to the PSIX search screen can be found in the above WikiTags.
