|The ADVANCED SEARCH
allows you to define your search with greater accuracy.
The most important feature is the 'Match' field.
The 'Date' field is largely irrelevant, as in the 'Within' field, so best to leave these as they are.
Use a wildcard (*) for unknown parts of a word. For example, mag* will find, for example, Maggie, Magnot, Magnolia. If you know the vessel starts with 'mag' and is in Byron Bay, then enter mag* byron and hit the radio button for 'match all words'. Note however that the search is on the whole page, and not each individual wreck entry, so by entering mag* byron you will only eliminate th wrecks starting with 'mag' that are in (for example) Tasmania. Hey - I can't do everything!!!
Once found, the relevant pages will be listed, just like a normal search engine listing. Enter on the entry and the relevent page with the entry will come up. You can then use your browser's search facility to find the particular entry.
The page will then be displayed as a full screen, ie without the frames giving the book codes. If you specifically need easy access to the book codes, go back to the home page (or this page) and enter in the specific state/location that your initial entry was listed.
