Designation Selection Guide

The purpose of selection guides is to explain our approach to designation. This guide considers all vessels used on inland waters, coastal waters and the open sea. It also includes vessels that are now buried under ground and those that are no longer afloat.  This guide complements the listing and scheduling selection guides for the marine environment. The guide includes a historical introduction, followed by a consideration of designation issues, and sources of further information.
