TRIBUTES have flowed for well-known boating journalist, David Lockwood, who passed away on Friday.

Lockwood was highly regarded for his knowledge of boats, the boating industry, and a high calibre of boating journalism matched by few.

He was more than a boating writer; much of his spare time was spent onboard his flybridge cruiser fishing and enjoying the boating lifestyle with his young family.

David was 51 years old.
