Please join us in sending your thoughts and prayers to Jimmy’s son, James, and the rest of his family.

Jimmy and James Smith have been through thick and thin in their five seasons of underwater logging. They’ve battled alligators, snakes, the competition, and often each other. With Jimmy ill, it’s on son James to step up as the new captain of Logzilla, but with tough competition in the Dreadknots, pulling out a victory will be harder than ever.
