Paper presents elements that should be taken into consideration by SMC during chosen merchant ship for help in SAR action. Bayesian network was used to construct model of merchant ship reliability in SAR action. Preliminary assessment of ship usability uses basic information about ship from AIS or similar system. Other information to enhanced model are obtain from master by radio or form safety databases. The paper present analyses which elements are the most important. The aim of research is construct application which will inform SMC which ship in the distress area is the best for SAR action.
