Meet the Team!
Hi there! For those of you who don't know us, we love sailing! We love it so much in fact, that we met aboard a 100 foot gaff-rigged schooner as crew, and we've been inseparable ever since we learned of our shared ambitions for life. The original Seaourtravels blog was created to be our connection to family and friends during our travels, but over the years it’s evolved into our collection of adventures, services, information, and more. This mishmash will continue to expand in it’s eclectic nature long into our future together as adventurers, captains, tradesmen, and as a family. So thank you for taking the time to stop by and check us out! I hope you enjoy browsing and should you need to reach us for any reason please do not hesitate to contact us here!
Teare has lived her life on the ocean surfing and fishing, but she jumped head-first into the maritime industry in 2015. Since then, she's acquired her Master 100 USCG Captain's license with a sailing endorsement. She's captained a commercial dive boat for a season, and captained a delivery from Washington to Hawaii. She's also worked in boat yards doing a variety of maintenance jobs but mostly specializing in finish painting and varnishing.
After the birth of their first baby, Teare has taken on a more remote roll in the maritime industry. She is now in the process of establishing an international boat brokerage and cruising agency. Whatever she happens to be working on, she'll always take a blue-water passage!
Martin has been on boats all his life, but his career in the marine industry started in 2012 on a traditional gaff-rig wooden schooner. Since then, his knowledge, craftsmanship, and experience has grown exponentially. He started two business in Hawaii, his personal marine maintenance and restoration business Nofziger Marine LLC., and a partnered venture, O'ahu Custom Construction LLC.
He also has around 20,000 nautical miles of blue-water experience, having crewed, skippered, and captained boats in the Pacific. He loves sharing his passion for sailing with others over a beer, and he'll continue repairing boats to help people live the lifestyle he loves!
