He flattened fear, built an international business and succeeded against the odds. 


This book is about the life of John Muir who winched the world from down under. From humble beginnings in a simple shed at his father’s boatyard in Battery Point, Tasmania, to international recognition amongst the builders and owners of an amazing array of sea-going vessels around the world. 


His winches are renowned for their quality and he for his inspirational work ethic. This book details the family, friends, employees and colleagues that formed the basis of his success.
