Thanks for taking a moment to peruse Navagear! Navagear is published by Tim Flanagan.
We’re always on the look out for cool new tools and gear for boats, especially the things you might want to have along on a voyage or otherwise off-the-beaten-path.
Do you sell a great, cruising-oriented product you’d like us to know about? Better yet, did you invent it? Find something interesting at a boat show? Send us a note at Tim (@ sign) Navagear dot com. We love sharing the good stuff with other boat gear nuts.
Tim Flanagan has boated since childhood, when his family cruised their trailerable powerboat throughout the San Juans and up the Inside Passage. As an adult he took up sailing; his one-design racing résumé includes the Laser, J/24, and J/35. He has completed three offshore passages totaling about 4500 miles, including two down the US west coast and one from Honolulu to Seattle. Tim cruises with his wife and two daughters aboard Two Lucky Fish, a C-Dory 22. Professionally, Tim has had a varied career, including stints as an ESL teacher overseas, talk radio producer, 911 operator, encyclopedia editor, and freelance writer.
