    Hello Bethany, 

    Thank you for contacting MarineTraffic Support.

    It is my understanding that you would like to change the vessel type of CDN WARSHIP 338 from cargo vessel to military ops vessel. Rest assured, I am here to assist you with this in the best possible way. 

    Please note that MarineTraffic is a global ship tracking intelligence that relies on AIS-transmitted data. Meaning that most of the information available in our platform is automatically updated according to the AIS signals we receive from the vessel's transponders Tis is also the case for the vessel type we display for each vessel in the database. You may also find more information about this here:

    With the above in mind, I would like to explain that in order to correct the vessel type displayed on the vessel's page here: 
    you first need to correct the vessel type entered on your vessel's transponder from fishing vessel to a Multipurpose vessel. 

    You may check this article for your reference on how we classify vessel type:

    Once this is done and as soon as we receive the required number of transmissions from your vessel, the change is automatically reflected on the vessel's Detail Page.

    I hope this helps and if there is anything else I can further help you with, please do not hesitate to let me know and I will be more than happy to help you.

    Kind regards,
