After more than 30 years in Panama City Beach, a fleet of boats is moving back to St. Andrews.
Captain Laverle Raffield is moving his fleet to the Smith Yacht Basin on Beck Ave.
Raffield said his faith in the restoration of old St. Andrews, and his family's deep history in the area helped prompt the move.
His father's boats were in the Smith Yacht Basin, but Raffield moved to Panama City Beach when he said times were changing and slowing down in St. Andrews.
"We wanted to go with our family's dreams here,” said Raffield. “I've got my boys, they still fish. Just want to carry on the tradition."
Walk on trips are available on Raffield's Family Tradition Charters.
