  • admin on Macgregor 65 Seattle to PDXSteve Rander is a good friend of mine. The keel on phoenix is old generation of Rage. Rudder was designed, built, and installed by steve/schooner at the time of the keel.
  • Scotsman on Macgregor 65 Seattle to PDXAh....Phoenix.....the listing said "new keel and rudder by Wylie, but I didn't think they were recycled from Rage. Probably still quite an upgrade for that boat. Hopefully you'll get the rest of her up to a higher standard.
  • CB on Concorde 41 Seward to BainbridgeWhat an awesome trip. Trip of a lifetime up to the land of the midnight sun and crossing the scary Gulf of Alaska. Weather was killer ( that's good) we went rainless for the whole 12 days of the trip. What are the chances. Can't wait to do another adventure with Capt Ray and his 1st mate Susan.
  • Rich Jones on Norseman 447 San Diego to Port AngelesThis was a wonderful delivery in many ways. The crew was great, both as individuals and as a team. I'm sure the owner of the boat really benefited from the collection of sailing experience on board to go along with the in-depth knowledge he already had of the boat in general and its systems in particular. The route was perfect, helped a bunch by the terrific weather we experienced. The planned stops were just right. Even with three ports of call (Santa Cruz, Brookings and Astoria) we made great time motorsailing. And talk about timing...we hit the Strait of Juan De Fuca just as the flood current reached the entrance and we rode it all the way to Port Angeles, wind on our port quarter, waves on our stearn, spinnaker up and doing double-digit speed over ground for a lot of miles. Highlights included whales up the kazoo, sunfish doing their screwy thing, a few visits from dolphins, bonking a crab pot and a bit of a thrill when the prop decided to wave good-bye to its old home by feathering on its own causing more than a little hiccup in our boat speed. Yep, great trip! Thanks, Ray, for letting me be a member of the crew and thanks Derek for bringing a wonderful Bob Perry-designed boat to the Pacific Northwest.
  • Anonymous on Cabo 43 delivery Bellingham to Newport BeachThanks Ray for getting her down here to Newport Beach. Smooth sailing, Don lawrenz
  • Anonymous on Training run out to coast on Bayliner 38′Ray McCormack is an awesome Coast Guard Captain. We have owned ski boats our entire life and are new owners of a 38’ Bayliner. We hired Ray to provide us training on navigation, night cruising and bar crossing to name a few things. We cruised from Scappoose to Astoria and spent the night. The next day we cruised to Ilwaco and then crossed the Columbia river bar. The bar was originally closed but opened up in the late afternoon. So exciting! Ray was very professional and yet personable. Ray is very knowledge about ALL aspects of boating from safety, navigation, trip planning, etc. We would recommend Ray to anyone who is looking for some additional training from novice to even an experienced boater. There is so much to learn and understand. Wow, what a fantastic experience, fun weekend and very valuable training we received. THANKS to Ray! Cheryl and Rick
  • CB on 2005 North Pacific 42 from San Francisco to Gig HarborIt was fun to be a part of this move. Didn't end up on the whole voyage but except when the seas overpowered the autopilot it was enjoyable. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
  • Susan on Tolleycraft 57 delivery San Francisco to AnacortesThank you captain Ray for a great trip up the coast! I appreciate your level of safety and skill when deciding to duck into port or continue the journey. I am quite amazed at your ability to juggle repairs, provisioning and crew.
  • William Schuldt on Delivery of Great ShearwaterThank you Ray for an excellent and uneventful delivery even with the boat sitting idle for a couple of years. Your pre-trip preparation, great suggestions for the boat, and total professionalism made the trip quite enjoyable with no problems. The only comments I have about Ray are: very professional and knowable in all aspects of boat handling, confident, great engineering advise for boat projects, and a total joy to sail with. With that said Ray is welcome on our boat any time!
  • Andrew Richardson on Delivery of Great ShearwaterThanks Ray and great job!
  • Rich Premzic on Outbound 46 from Port Angeles to San FranciscoI had my crew lined up for a September/October delivery, but due to some mechanical delays, the boat was not ready until early November. Unfortunately, my crew ran out of time. With winter coming on, I was referred to Ray. I felt comfortable with him from our very first conversation. He asked all the right questions and stressed the safety side of the trip. Fortunately, a weather window opened up and we made good use of it, motor sailing from Port Angeles, WA to Richmond, CA in 4 days 8 hours. Who would have thought a December west coast trip would have been so enjoyable?! Ray, it was a pleasure to sail with you and your crew. Brad and Scott were easy going and comfortable to work with. Shooting through the "Hole in the Wall" off Cape Flattery under a Super Moon was an experience I will always remember. The marine life (dolphins, orcas, humpbacks) were bountiful, as were the crab pots off of Pt. Reyes, which I could have done without! Good luck with your growing business, and I look forward to staying in touch. Rich
  • Brad Coffey on Outbound 46 from Port Angeles to San FranciscoWhat a vessel. I would love to be on Bumblebee any time. Great trip with a great weather window. Lots of wildlife. We saw orcas on the hunt. It was a surprise that we managed to avoid all of the crab pots. That part was stressful. Ray's experience and preparation once again made for an unforgettable trip. I will work on my three bean salad recipe for next time.
  • Brad Coffey on Hunter 37 from Passion Yachts to Newport, ORThis delivery went mostly to plan. If the wind would have co-operated with the forecast, it would have been to plan. Any December Columbia bar crossing is going to be memorable. This one was timed great and we have a push from the river and the wind. Solid boat that Gary will enjoy for some time. Wish that I had remembered my wool pants. Thanks Ray for another great delivery and I look forward to the next.
  • Taylan Sen on Delivery of Hunter 40.5 from PDX to KennewickThis was a delivery to remember, one that I am proud to have been a part of. Being the only sailboat sailing up the mighty Columbia River in November weather. 4 locks and 13 bridges. Ray's planning and execution was exceptional, the expertise & cooperation of the small crew aided the mission well, and the boat owners were remarkably supportive in all phases of the project.
  • Mike Fitzhugh on Hunter 37 from Passion Yachts to Newport, ORThanks Ray for helping Gary out on this delivery. He’s excited to have his new boat in Newport now.
  • Anonymous on Hunter 37 from Passion Yachts to Newport, ORRay and his crew were really professional and great to work with. I would recommend Ray with absolutely no qualms. Thanks again Ray.
  • ANGELA IVES on Delivery of Hunter 40.5 from PDX to KennewickMy husband David and I purchased a Hunter 40.5 in Portland and required delivery to Kennewick, WA. Our sailing years did not include any experience on the Columbia River and we immediately seized upon securing Ray McCormack as our captain after several recommendations from trusted sources. Meeting Ray and discussing the transit we immediately were impressed in his manner, sailing and delivery experience, and knowledge of the challenge we faced getting a 62.9" mast under 56" and 61" bridges in the Tri-Cities. Meeting his crew, Susan, Tylan and Scott was equally comforting in their knowledge and experience in sailing. The transit and delivery was everything we hoped for. A successful arrival of "Serenity" to her new slip in the Tri-Cities. I am sure we stopped car traffic on the Cable Bridge at 56" and the Blue Bride at 61" in Kennewick, as Ray and crew heeled the vessel 39 degrees to get under those bridges! We cheered this accomplishment and truly are so grateful to Ray and his crew, Susan, Tylan and Scott for their positive energy, sailing experience and the care they took of our beautiful sailboat. If you are looking for the best of the best in delivery and/or training and handling of your boat, look no further than Ray Mc Cormack. This gentleman is gifted in boating and in procuring the right people for a safe and successful delivery!
  • Rick & Cheryl Jacobson on 38′ bayliner trainingWe were experienced ski boat owners but new yacht owners. In about 4 hours’ time Ray left us with a good understanding of the equipment, maintenance and operation of our new 38' vessel. Now we are comfortable entering and leaving our slip. Ray is extremely knowledgeable and presents information and piloting techniques in a way that is easy to understand. He made the entire experience fun for me and my wife. He also made several recommendations on equipment and upgrades that would make our yachting experiences easier and more enjoyable. We highly recommend him and look forward to working with Ray on additional training.
  • Scott Brechbiel on Delivery of Hunter 40.5 from PDX to KennewickMy first trip with Ray was incredible. If he is ever nervous or unsure he doesn’t show it. On this trip we tipped the boat 39 degrees to clear two low bridges, something I have only seen on YouTube. Was a first for everyone on board but Captain Ray made us feel like it was something we do everyday. Can’t wait till the next one!
  • Peter the Rabbit on Carver 325 trainingNew boat for me with what I thought were several blind spots so I called Raymond for some training and advice on how to use the boat and move about the marina with safety and confidence. Raymond was very helpful and easy to work with. I will use Raymond again in much more diverse conditions when the time is right. Blind spots were not a problem after I became more familiar with the boat and it was actually very easy to maneuver. Raymond pointed out some very obvious blind spots and how to better deal with those fears. Helps to have a second set of eyes and a more qualified hand on board to guide you through the process of proper boat handling. Good guy and I give Raymond a 10.5!
  • Susan Simonson Hardin on Oceanis 50.5 Grenada to Costa RicaFantastic trip through the canal. Thank you for the opportunity to crew. You handled the crew, the boat, and the logistics very professionally. It is always nice to see a competent captain perform his trade. I want to through my name in the hat for the next leg too~what a great boat!
  • Ian Holtzworth on Oceanis 50.5 Grenada to Costa RicaGreat trip through the canal with you and the crew Ray - always a fun perspective when making a trip I've done on a ship on something a little smaller and more fun!
  • CB on Catalina 350 delivery from PDX to San FranciscoWhat a great trip down the coast Astoria to SF. It went as per plan which in my book is unheard of. I enjoyed going into Brookings as I hadn’t been there 47 years. I didn’t recognize the place. I was so impressed with the way Ray set up and ran the boat along with the B&G autopilot which made watches a breeze. The food was good and so was the vibe on the boat. The only downside was the wallowing going downwind. May the wind always be at your back, is part of a proverb-poem but when it comes to sleeping I felt like a foos ball.

  • John Zucker on North Pacific 43 PDX to San FranciscoMy wife and I purchased a 2012 North Pacific 43 trawler that was berthed in Scappoose, Oregon. "Sunset Souvenir" needed some maintenance and repair work as well as a number of items to personalize the boat and ready her for a move to Redwood City, CA. Captain Ray McCormack managed the entire process from haulout and boat yard work to additional on-site work at the temporary moorage he secured in Vancouver, Washington. Ray moved the boat, coordinated the vendors and filled in the gaps by doing many of the several dozen work items himself. He also took care of provisioning and provided immersion suits so my son-in-law and I could join part of the journey from Vancouver to Ft. Bragg, CA. In addition to taking full ownership of the work process, Ray demonstrated expert boat handling and seamanship in the challenging weather conditions of the Columbia River bar and North Pacific Coast, steaming for 64 hours with only two fuel stops. Along the way, Ray provided excellent instruction on boat handling and real-time avoidance of and solutions to the inevitable problems caused by rough seas. Finally, after arriving in Redwood City, Ray gave the family instruction on boat handling, docking and moorage. Ray has a remarkable ability to recognize, anticipate and avoid problems well before they might happen. I was surprised on many occasions but easily understood once they were explained. Ray has the rare ability to maintain a view of the big picture while at the same time resolving details that need attention. He is both process and goal oriented, pausing when appropriate and pushing onward when conditions demand prompt and precise execution. And he approaches his work and personal relationships in a calm and steady manner, a quick smile, a caring attitude and a joy of all aspects of boating life. It was my pleasure to meet Ray and his family and have him become part of ours. I highly recommend Captain Ray McCormack to provide your boating services. John Zucker Elk, California
  • Brad on Catalina 350 from Anacortes to Scappose, ORAnother miserable delivery. Don't want to make it sound as good as it was or else other people might get the idea to start doing these deliveries. All kidding aside, the weather was perfect, food was good and the scenery coming through the hole-in-the-wall at Flattery was worth the whole trip. I learn more each trip and always meet interesting people. We had pleasant conditions in the ocean and two awesome sunsets. Does it even count as a bar crossing if I slept through it? I will count it for now and chalk it up to Ray's great driving that allowed me to sleep. Can't wait to write my next review.
  • Gary Brown (Beneteau First 35 ) on Delivery of Beneteau First 35 from Lake Union to PDXThanks Ray and the rest of crew for a great trip! The trip was well organized, fun and instructive. Ray certainly knows his stuff and he made sure we kept safe. We had the sails up whenever we could to keep our pace to max. I would use Ray again and am happy to give a strong recommendation for him. Get my contact info from Ray if you need a referral.
  • Don on Nordic tug trainingRay is very knowledgable , patient and was very helpful to me. He provided me with lots of tips in fast current and tight quarters docking. With these key concepts that Ray showed me getting in and out of my slip will be a non event. Thanks Ray
  • Lewis Schroeder on Delivery of 40′ Marine Trade TrawlerWith Captain Ray at the helm of our yacht, the worries melted away quickly. Leaving me the opportunity to propose to my amazing lady Ainslie! Thanks so much and we will be in touch!
  • Jason Whitaker on Delivery of 40′ Marine Trade TrawlerShe looks good in her new spot! Thanks Ray for delivering another one, you are a pleasure to work with! JW
  • Greg on Grampian 34 delivery Kenmore to swantownThanks for another expert delivery. You make everything so easy and the updates and photos along the way were very much appreciated.
  • Brad Coffey on S2 11.0A delivery to Winchester BayWhat a great delivery. From the wonderful hospitality and graciousness of Batwater, to the timing of the bar crossing to the appropriate weather window. Everything fell into place and went off without a hitch. I hope that the new owners will get plenty of use of a solid, safe vessel. Was great to meet such interesting people and hope to see you all again. Having been on several deliveries, I can say that Ray is always safe. His experience and knowledge give you the assurance of success. Ray has a a detailed float plan and safety checklist that instills confidence for those on the boat and those waiting for their safe return. Can't wait to do another delivery.
  • Dave Jolly on Power boat instructionRay is very knowledgable , very patient and was extremely helpful to me. I'm new to boating and got a little overconfident with my initial experiences last year that were all low water/slow current. My first high water/not so slow current experience in March made it painfully obvious that I was in over my head and needed some guidance and direction. Ray filled that need perfectly. I still have a lot to learn and a lot of personal experience to gain but a few key concepts that Ray shared will hopefully make the process of gaining that experience much less traumatic than it otherwise might have been. Thanks Ray.
  • Don McIlroy on Trailer delivery of Oday 322What a great boat the o'Day 322, sailed one for 13 years.
  • Martin on Pearson 10 meter deliveryGood delivery and good sail. I learned quite a bit and will take what I learned and expand on it.
  • Glenn Springer on Trailer delivery of Oday 322Captain McCormack delivered my Oday 322 from Wisconsin to Washington's Puget Sound. He had every obstacle thrown at him during the delivery all of which he remedied with perseverance. Keeping me informed all the way here came my boat in good shape lead by pretty tired and tested man of his word. You would be proud to know him. Thanks Ray.
  • Glen Simons on Power Boat TrainingVery organized, well paced, informative and itinerary well thought out in advance. Lots of tips in fast current and winter spring conditions. Great point of reference for all things nautical and operations. Had a great day!
  • Team Go-Sail.org on Grampian 2-34 Anacortes to KenmoreYour planning, direct communication and experience made this delivery easy and straight forward. Thank you for having me on as crew and providing valuable sea time.
  • Greg James on Grampian 2-34 Anacortes to KenmoreThanks Ray. I couldn't be happier with the delivery or your professionalism. I'm still in awe that you so casually and confidentiality piloted a boat of unknown, (questionable) seaworthiness 100 miles in a near gale, in the dark! Thanks again!
  • Mark Rinker on Beneteau 34 Swift Trawler Danish to Rocky PointeGood job by Capt Ray and his capable crew. Will certainly utilize your delivery skills in the future. Mark Rinker, Denison Yacht Sales, Seattle, WA
  • Team Go-Sail.org on Beneteau 34 Swift Trawler Danish to Rocky PointeRay, It is always great to crew for a captain that shares his skills and knows what he is doing. Your decisive, clear orders make a ship run smoothly~ Kudos!
  • go-sail.org team member on Upgrade to 100 tonRay, I have crewed for various captains and no one runs a ship like you. I appreciate your expert knowledge and direction. Your ability to diagnose and fix the issue, trim the sails and direct the crew is impressive! Thank you for teaching and passing on the skills of being a competent mariner.
  • Brian on Upgrade to 100 tonHope this goes through, you definitely have earned it. I appreciate how much control you demonstrate as captain.
  • April on Upgrade to 100 tonI have yet to meet anyone more qualified and fit for this. I'm excited to see what is next for you! Cheers!
  • Ash on Upgrade to 100 tonCongrats! Hopefully this will open up some new waters you can explore!
  • Andy Parks on Silverton 35 PDX -> Florence, ORThank you Captain Ray! Great work by you and crew to get my home on the water to Florence.
  • Dwight Campbell on Delivery Cape Dory 31 PDX -> Sequim, WAVery good delivery experience with Captain McCormack's sailing expertise and knowledge of the waters we traveled. Ray has a focused and professional attitude with the goal in mind of arriving safely and intact. Readily answers any questions and makes suggestions for improvements on our sailboat. I would highly recommend him.
  • Jack Everett on 42′ Crowthers Shockwave Catamaran DeliveryGlad to have been part of this adventure!
  • Jim Landon on Hunter 49 delivery PDX -> OlympiaRay and his crew did a fantastic job preparing and delivering the boat home to Olympia. This boat was very lightly used for a few years, and there were a list of survey items that required attention. Ray's project management skills helped keep us on track throughout the preparation process. Ray's captaining skills kept the boat moving with efficiency and on schedule. Ray is a jack of all trades- understands physics, engines, electricity, electronics, internal systems, all things sailing, and has a special ability to thoroughly (and patiently!) answer questions. We definitely look forward to having Ray captain the vessel in near the future. And I look forward to taking lessons from him as well! Although the wife and I were both sea sick during the rough part, we both agree that we'd do it again! Thanks, Ray, for a job well done!
  • June Berry on Back Cove 37 delivery PDX to Lake UnionWe were thrilled with the service provided by Ray. He is very personable and professional, went the extra mile to make sure he accomodated our schedule and needs, and -- most importantly -- delivered our boat safely.
  • Team Go-Sail.org on Beneteau 423 deliveryGreat job Ray! You never cease to amaze me with your knowledge of various systems and ability to get things working regardless of the issue. Competent captains are hard to come by- keep up the good work!
  • Michael Tiemman on 2009 46′ Beneteau PDX -> SeattleRay invited me to do this delivery up the coast in February, but we had the right boat, crew, and proper weather window. Ray was an excellent captain for the delivery. His experience and knowledge of systems, sailing and seamanship was on point. I never found myself lacking for any new information as he was very well prepared. Nor was I worried when the conditions got challenging. He kept us in the know for any information we wanted or needed. It was a great learning experience and I look forward to more. I would recommend him for any delivery or sailing opportunity.
  • Tim Tucker on Capri 22 from PDX to Poulsbo, WAI also want to thank Ray for a great day on the water. Capt Ray gave me an opportunity to deckhand on the delivery. What a beautify day to spend on the water, and great opportunity to learn something new. While I have plenty of experience with a travel lift, it was my first launch with crane and slings. Bruce, it was also a pleasure meeting you. I wish you best of luck with your new vessel. Regards -tuck Tim Tucker
  • Bruce C. on Capri 22 from PDX to Poulsbo, WACould not have been a better or more professional experience. Thank you for a service that was absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with the results. The expert advice I received in response to any of my questions was superlative. Thank you and it has been a pleasure, Bruce Callen
  • Team Go-Sail.org on 1st phase of Trailer modsAn engineer with practical knowledge is very valuable! Thanks for sharing!
  • David Maxwell on Rampage 33 Astoria to GarabaldiCaptain Ray was easy to work with. He keep me informed of weather and a window to open up for delivery to Garibaldi. I could not ask for a smother delivery, problem free. Ray and I might even become fishing buds. Just a nice honest guy that knows the sea and very knowledgeable about boats. I'd use him again, and recommend him to anyone moving a boat. David Maxwell Rampage 33 Express
  • Jed Lemon on Deliver CHB 34′ Marine Trader PDX -> OlympiaWhat a great way to test my "sea legs" after several years. Had a wonderful time circumnavigating the Olympic Peninsula. By far the best way to arrive in Seattle. Had a few curve-balls thrown our way, good judgement and experience shows well with Capt. McCormack. Delivery successful with odds not particularly in our favor, Weather/mechanical failure/ etc. Good crew and Captain make for a rewarding experience. Congratulations to the new owners Earl and Ruji. Looking forward to more deliveries in near future!
  • Earl Zamora on Deliver CHB 34′ Marine Trader PDX -> OlympiaCaptain McCormack delivered our marine trader 34 from McCuddy's in Portland, through the unpredictable weather windows of November weather, through the Columbia River bar, stopping in Astoria to fill up before bravely heading north into the choppy waters of the wild blue sea. Hemmed in by foul weather near Wesport, the good captain brought her and the crew into safe harbor only to return with a vengeance a few days later as he proceeded to head northbound around to Flattery, through the Straight and finally down into Puget Sound only to be struck by a mechanical breakdown coming into Seattle and having to be hauled in. After a quick repair, he headed back out with crew members Susan and Jed when the boat failed yet again. After being hauled in a second time - Ray made some on the spot repairs himself, and chugged on through the Sound until finally arriving to his destination in Budd Bay here in Olympia in the late evening, delivering the boat as promised. Night navigation was obviously not a problem for the captain. What more can you say about Ray's determination, due diligence, and obvious marine experience? With the support of his 2 person crew, the boat arrived in great shape. From the beginning, I knew I had picked the right guy to deliver the boat. As the vessel's new owner, I never felt that anything or anyone was in ever serious jeopardy - Ray stressed his commitment to safety first - communication was great when conditions permitted, and it turns out that my wife Ruji and I made some great friends as well. Thanks again Ray for a job very well done! If circumstances permit, I hope to see you again in the coming spring/summer to learn some tricks of the trade.
  • go-sail.org team member on Deliver CHB 34′ Marine Trader PDX -> OlympiaRaymond P. McCormack you are a skilled leader and a gifted mariner. Thank you so much for your willingness to pass on your Seamanship skills~even to the greenest among us! :0)
  • go-sail.org team member on Deliver Valiant 50What a great trip Ray! Thank you so much for the opportunity to be on the water! I so appreciate your willings to share your knowledge and experience with those of us in need of more experience. :0) Also: The boatyard was phenomenal!
  • Brad on Delivering history from Kennewick to TacomaI was recruited for the leg of the trip from Astoria to Tacoma. Had a great journey with Ray. His professionalism and patience played a large part in making the trip an adventure and not an ordeal. Ray is calm and confident. All of this adds up to my enjoyment of the trip. I was able to relax knowing that things were going to be fine. The vessel was a little tricky in tight spaces and we did not have any issues because of Ray’s skills and knowledge. Thanks for the great trip. Ed, your boat performed great. I hope that you enjoy it for many years to come. Have a good Halloween Cruise.
  • Steve Buckner on Hans Christian 38 deliveryIt was a pleasure meeting you as well Brian. Happy to have shared that helm with you.
  • Steve Buckner on Hans Christian 38 deliveryAnother safe delivery on time and for the most part no bumps in the road along the way. Thank you Ray for passing down some of your knowledge along the way and making sure we all made it back safely. As Someone has said before, you are the Bear Grylls of sailing.
  • B Smith on Hans Christian 38 deliveryRay, thank you for allowing me to accompany you on this delivery. It was an experience of a lifetime, sailing the Columbia or the San Juan's was nothing compared to this experience. Your leadership and knowledge ensured the success of this delivery, and many more to come. Steve, it was a pleasure to meet you and share the helm when needed.
  • John Ensley - SV Mystery on CT38 delivery from PDX to Port AngelesThanks again Ray! It really was a great trip up the coast! Shelly and I appreciated that you were as much a teacher as you were a delivery captain - and as you mentioned, now a new friend too. From going aloft underway to wandering the streets of Astoria with a dock cart looking for diesel, to making a night-time bar crossing or brain storming improvements to our rigging or using a barber hauler to get just the right sail trim, I learned a ton from you in just a couple of days - and probably most important, I gained more confidence in my own skills. Thanks again! John and Shelly, SV Mystery
  • Micah Stolowitz on Valiant 50 from Dana Point, CA to PDXI second Steve's comments; Ray was really impressive, and led the team through some challenges. In addition to the expected skills of navigation, sail trimming, etc, Ray really stepped up to address rigging and equipment failures as fast as they arose. He demonstrated expertise in rigging, electrical systems, diesel engines, and most everything else on board. Ray figured out solutions and work-arounds as needed, and he did so quickly. But he did not catch a tuna. Which actually is OK with me.
  • Steve Ford on Valiant 50 from Dana Point, CA to PDXRay did an amazing job. Not only did he navigate us safely up the dangerous Pacific West Coast, but also took responsibility for fixing all of the items that were inevitably going to break during the delivery. He went up the mast over 6 times during the trip just to keep us on schedule and in good sailing condition. I couldn't have asked for a better delivery Captain. I highly recommend Ray for boat deliveries or any other boat service. Steve Ford owner SV Resonance (50 foot Valiant) ford@stofoco.com
  • David Sommers on Power boat handling lessons on Maxum 3300Ray was very professional and knowledgeable about boat handling. I still need more practice, but I'll be doing that with more confidence after spending an enjoyable and instructive day on the water with Ray. Owner of the Maxum 3300
  • Tom Kelly on Delivery of J122Great trip from Whidbey Island to Astoria and then to Portland. Ray did a great job helping us get the boat delivered. A very competent and knowledgeably sailor. Tom Kelly Owner: Anam Cara
