Originally produced by the NCSU Poole College Startup Series featuring Randy Ramsey, Co-Founder and President of Jarrett Bay Boatworks.

When many dreamed of becoming a firefighter, dancer or police officer, Randy Ramsey knew he wanted to become a charter boat captain. Sitting down with Lewis Sheats, assistant vice provost of entrepreneurship, Ramsey, founder of Jarrett Bay Boatworks, discusses humble beginnings that grew into a premier builder of sportfishing boats.

“We face a lot of adversity and trials living through recessions and labor force issues, but probably the largest would be capital issues which are probably something most entrepreneurs face,” said Ramsey.

Poole College Startup Stories is a series that takes a look into businesses created by entrepreneurs, including NC State alumni.
