About Tom Tripp

Tom Tripp is the owner of OceanLines LLC, and the publisher of OceanLines .  He is an award-winning marine journalist, science writer and long-time public communications specialist.  His writing has appeared in a wide array of publications; from Microsoft’s Encarta encyclopedia to the Chesapeake Bay magazine, with many other magazines, newspapers and other publications in between. 

Tom started OceanLines LLC as his marine writing business in late 2006 and began publishing the online boating news magazine OceanLines in late 2007.   OceanLines consistently breaks news about new boats and technology long before the print magazines can publish, and visitors to the site see never-before-released photos of the newest boats and systems in the industry.  OceanLines also often discovers new products and boats in development and its readers are the first to find out.  No matter where Tom is, he won’t be far from either his keyboard or the ocean.  He’s been at sea aboard everything from a 17-foot homemade wooden fishing boat to a 1,000-foot-long, 96,000 ton nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, and the truth is, he’d rather be at sea than ashore.  Thankfully, wireless internet connections of all kinds continue to improve so he can write and file stories and manage the business from almost anywhere these days.  And that’s where you’re most likely to find him — anywhere, as long as it’s on the water.


Tom loves to talk about the business, boats, science, technology, food and cooking.  So call or drop him a line.
