In Memory of:
Jim Muir "The Wizard"
1932 - 2016
We lost a great designer and friend on July 26, 2016.
His forward thinking, sharp wit and dry sense of humor
will live on only in our memories. But we are left with
reminders of his genius in the machines, devices
and most of all the boats the he loved to design.
