The Keywords field can be used to create a custom list of “tags”.
By entering a specific keyword for each vessel then you can use the PL for Principals - More Filters to only search for ships matching the keyword (tag) specified.

and click the disk symbol to Save it for the specific vessel.
The tag will show up in the column “Keywords”
The tag will stay with the specific vessel unless removed manually.
