About Ray DeFir (Taken from http://www.raysoncraftboats.com/about.htm)

My water activities started in Oregon, after my family moved here from Oklahoma in
1943 to work in the ship yards during World War II. I was 13 years old. Our family
moved into the town of Vanport, Oregon which is now the Portland International Raceway
and golf course area. By 1944, Vanport had the second highest population in Oregon.

Cole TR2 Model

Ok guy's...time to air it out! (sorry...couldnt resist!) Runner bottom depth nomenclature has always varied from mfg to mfg and sometimes within the mfg! The Cole TR1 and the Hondo 511 are almost identical except that the Cole mold was MUCH straighter, but not nearly as straight as later Cole models. The TR1 and the 511 where always refered to as a 5/8" Runner Bottom. (No...that's NOT the measurement of the gap between the center and side plate!) The Cole TR2#1 mold was made from a Hondo 511T and featured full length chines, and was referred to as a 7/8" runner bottom.

White Mist I Boat

The original Sanger, the first flatbottom crafted by Jack Davidson. It was a glass over wood boat with an unusual motor combination. It had a Chrysler engine with a Potvin crank-driven blower and a 2-port Hilborn fuel injection system. This low profile combination gave it a very different look, with only the magneto and a short portion of the zoomies protruding about the cowl line. The cav plate was operated by a cable thru the the block you can see in the center of the transom. When Rudy Ramos went 100 at Kingsberg in 1959, as the first fiberglass boat to break 100, the Mist went 110.
