Alongside the marine industry, NMMA is mourning the loss of Richard (Dick) Rowe, founder of Indmar Products and a 2004 inductee into the NMMA Hall of Fame. Rowe passed away on Nov. 22 at the age of 95 surrounded by his children. He was a champion of the recreational marine industry and a visionary in the advancement of marine engine technology.

After twenty years serving his country in the U.S. Marine Corps, Dick became a partner in a Memphis-based boat dealership. Upon retirement from the Marines in 1971, he and his wife Donna started a small marine and industrial distributorship called Indmar Products Company, Inc. The business was founded on $30,000, three partners and the ultimate American dream that resulted in a legendary brand that has touched the lives of boaters and watersports enthusiasts.
