Jim came to Stuart, FL in 1974 to earn a degree in Oceanography from the Florida Institute of Technology. Following graduation, he spent five years overseas as a marine electronic technician on an offshore oil exploration ship traveling to South America, Africa, Canada, the North Sea, Bermuda and the Gulf of Mexico. Afterward, Jim returned to Stuart to work with the Evinrude Corporation improving engine reliability through troubleshooting and hours of testing on local waters. Jim recently retired as a Nuclear-chemist to dedicate more time to Treasure Coast Marine Transport and spend more time on the water with his First Mate, LeAnn. Captain Jim is a licensed Merchant Marine Captain who operates daily out of the historic downtown Stuart area.
