OceanLines – The Latest News in Passagemaking

Sometimes we advertise these changes weeks or months in advance.  Sometimes we just spring ’em on you.  Like now.  Welcome to the new OceanLines LLC corporate theme for both Oceanlines and Marine Science Today.  The WordPress theme is the WP-Vybe theme from Solostream.  It’s extremely flexible and well-written and we’re thrilled with it.

Our web support partners at New York Design Group are helping us get it tweaked and our long-time graphics design partners at Taylor Design created the banner logos for both websites.  This new design will allow us to bring you content that is easier to look at, easier to search and just plain old good-looking.  Please drop a comment here and let us know what you like; what you think needs work and we’ll keep working on it.
Stay tuned this week for news about Ovation Yachts two new models, some impressive new long-range catamarans from Pacific Expedition Yachts and some new photos of some of your favorite trawlers and some new ones just coming down the ways.
And remember that starting with the new year, Marine Science Today debuts with its own dedicated publication and this sporty new look, too.  If you have an interest in the science that’s dominating our current environmental discussions, visit Marine Science Today and learn about the latest ocean research.

Coming Soon: Marine Science Today, a Dedicated New Publication

New Banner for Marine Science Today

New Banner for Marine Science Today

I am pleased to announce the upcoming debut on January 1, 2009, of a new online publication, Marine Science Today, dedicated to news, analysis, and discussion of modern marine science.  With our heightened understanding of the central role played by the world’s oceans in controlling our climate and overall environment, there is both a need and a desire to educate and inform the general public about the myriad activities, discoveries and ongoing work in this scientific field.

We began covering marine science news here on OceanLines but have discovered there is an audience for a dedicated publication, serving not just the interests of one organization or another, but the public interest in understanding as much as possible about this vital field.  This is a public that must, eventually, understand to provide the financial and political support for spending and programs in marine science and our goal at Marine Science Today is to help provide that crucial understanding.

Marine Science Today ( will provide in one place news from around the entire marine science community, with features and photos covering the science, the people and technology currently at work around the globe.  In addition to hard news and features written by staff, MST will provide an opportunity for students, teachers and researchers in the field to publish basic summaries of their latest work.  We will also encourage analysis and opinion pieces by policy makers and interested parties as part of our attenpt to continue to stimulate public discussion of topics related to marine science.

Marine Science Today will debut in just a few short weeks, so plan to join us at the website then.  And please do plan to jump right on in, the water is everywhere!
