Lea Edgar, Librarian & Archivist at Vancouver Maritime Museum, recently queried:
I was wondering if anyone has produced a comprehensive thesaurus or vocabulary for types of vessels? I see a lot of lists out there but none seem to be very official. I am looking for a list that will include broader and narrower terms so that we can include it in a new database we are building. For instance, I want it to include all the different types of fishing vessels. Thanks for your help.
If anyone has created such a guide, please share it with Lea at firstname.lastname@example.org
