Ray's Boathouse

Ray’s Boathouse Leads to Duke’s

Duke Moscrip invested in Ray’s Boathouse and helped turn it into the seafood restaurant it is today. After visiting Ray’s, just a simple restaurant at the time, we were instantly inspired to make the concept of simply prepared, fresh local seafood a reality. From a partnership involving Russ Wohler, Earl Lasher and me, Ray’s Boathouse & Café was born. Russ went on to create a great restaurant and I left in 1976 to create my own restaurant and the legacy that is today Duke’s Seafood launch a year later.
