Our boat, the Rylee Allen, was purchased in 2021 after Sally destroyed our original vessel The Viking. We came up with the name to honor our son who was taken from us in April 2020 due to a tragic accident. While he was only 13 at the time of the accident.  We miss him more than words could ever explain.
