Tom Trimmer is the founder and owner of Custom Marine Products, a company specializing in marine solar systems for the cruising sailor. He cruises the The North Channel for six weeks every summer.
Tom has been a cruising sailor for more than 20 years and understands that the number one challenge to comfortable cruising is the availability of electrical power. His company has helped many sailors analyze their power requirements, evaluate solar products available and design systems to meet their needs. A graduate mechanical/electrical engineer from the University of Michigan, Tom has been involved in the marine industry for over 20 years. He and his wife cruise the North Channel for six weeks each summer testing and evaluating solar equipment. (Somebody has to do it.)
