In Memory of:

Jim Muir   "The Wizard"

Dimension 5

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.

                                                                                                                                March 3, 2016

This year, I commenced ray 57th year in the boat industry. I have bad fee good fortune to work for some the finest organizations in fee marine world. My mental makeup is such that I have very high mechanical IQ. Pete Smythe, Editor of MOTOR BOATING Magazine said in a story on "Thunderboat Row"...'"Brownie is generally conceded to have more engineering moxie than anyone else in the high performance boat business." Brian Davidson in HOT BOAT Magazine. .'Brownie's experience in the business is second to none, with almost 50 years of high performance expertise in building, driving and designing every part of a race boat."
