Findmypast adds Master's names from Lloyd's Register of British and Foreign Shipping 1843

The Lloyd's Register of Merchant Ships Index 1843 was created using the 1843 publication of Lloyd's Register of British and Foreign Shipping covering 1 July 1843 to 30 June 1844.
Search for a transcription giving Master's name, vessel name, registration port and other information, There are 14,767 names.
According to Findmypast the original register can be found in Google Books and records where the vessel was built, when it was built, its owners and any of its defining characteristics. I was unable to find that issue, but others were found on Google Books, and the Internet Archive Texts.
For other Lloyd's resources see this recent blog post.
