    November 11th 2021 marks a very sad day and the end of an era for Hydrodyners.com.

    Jim Leroy has moved on into the driver seat in the sky pulling all the people who came before him. With his wife now by his side again is not doubt where he wants to be.

    Jim was an integral part in the founding of Hydrodyners.com and was its biggest supporter even as the site waned with age. I had many conversations with Jim over the years and his kindness was always evident and his knowledge of the boat, the skiing and life in general was always a welcome conversation.

    Good luck Jim, you will be missed by many and forgotten by none.

    A little belated but this is sad news. Jim was a wealth of knowledge and an ambassador for the Hydrodyne Brand. He will be missed.

    Also very sorry to see that Dyne bob passed this fall. Both Jim and Bob were a wealth of knowledge regarding these boats.

    Very, very sad news indeed.

    Jim was a good friend and helped me numerous times when I was working on my '74 Dyne.

    I had a friend call me asking me for help when he purchased an old 70's 18' Dyne. The best advice I could give him was to call Jim LeRoy.

    Bob was another good friend lost. I bought old Dyne parts from Bob and I always enjoyed our telephone conversations.

    Both will be greatly missed.

    God's speed gentlemen.
