Stolen Boat Registry
BoatWiki - Definitions
The stolen boat registry can be defined as a free open source database available to the entire boating community, insurance companies, and nationwide enforcement agencies. It is a proprietary implementation on behalf of BoatWiki.com to enhance the detection of such events and help expedite subsequent recoveries.
The registry provides a unique opportunity for individual boaters, insurance companies, and law enforcement agencies to publicize stolen boat listings in a quick and efficient manner.
Although enforcement agencies will track stolen boats through routine inspection efforts, their reports are not typically open to the general public and they offer little when it comes to public exposure. Title branding for stolen boats is also unavailable in most state registration systems. BoatWiki's stolen boat registry is designed to help alleviate this situation by offering an open resource for usage by the general public.
The stolen boat registry is not a government function and does not include every stolen boat. It is however, another resource in that may prove helpful to those in need of such information. Please help your fellow boaters by wiki-sharing any comments about the registry and your experiences in dealing with stolen boats.
