    im the guy that's built a couple boats in my small shop that's working toward launching my first production type recreational boat to sell & become a lagitamite & legal boatworks/boatbuilder, I`ve filled out all my MIC paperwork & im an existing LLC..does anybody know if theres a database somewhere that lists makes & models of boats & manufacturers that I can compare potential names to so I don't step on my own toes ( or somebody elses) by unknowingly stealing an existing name

    I'm not sure that such a database exists but you have a complete collection of examples in the "Boat Design Gallery" of this forum.

    Google can probably help, or a trademark register, which widens it beyond boats. I doubt a new boat name of BoeingCraft would "fly" !

    The USCG will not issue a MIC that is currently or formerly used by someone else. You can scan their MIC list if desired and look at what initial combinations are available and used.

    Actually I just got our MIC code and the guy at CG said, "if it's been inactive for 10 years I can re-issue it"

    for make and model reference, try www.nadaguides.com
