Editorial Policy

OceanLines LLC strives to provide its readers and subscribers with timely, accurate reporting and analysis of the cruising segment of the recreational marine industry. We maintain our editorial independence and do not accept advertising in exchange for positive editorial coverage.  That practice would not be in the best interest of our readers, nor would it be, in the long-term, in the best interests of anyone in the marine industry.  We follow the Boating Writers International Code of Ethics, which we construe as a minimum standard.

At times we will express an opinion on a topic which should be taken as the personal opinion of the actual writer, whoever that may be.  You should take this under advisement and use your own judgment when making decisions regarding purchase, operation, maintenance or other use of any marine product or service covered by OceanLines in its reporting and commentary.  Our articles and commentary are no substitute for your own judgment and practice.  Where legal or tax matters are concerned, be sure to consult your own professional advisors.  In matters of seamanship, a captain has the ultimate responsibility for his or her actions and the safety of vessel and crew.

If you have any concerns about the accuracy of any of our reporting, please let us know as soon as possible. Use our Contact page to provide feedback or leave a comment on an individual post.

Readers are advised that the information and opinions expressed by commenters are their own and OceanLines LLC takes no responsibility for them.  We will not tolerate abusive or vulgar language in our comments and will remove any matter that we deem, in our best judgment, is inappropriate for our readers.
