RUBY was designed by her Captain. The hull was constructed by the Millerick Brothers and the rest of the outfitting was done by the Captain in San Francisco. RUBY was the first sailboat on San Francisco Bay to be granted a passenger license by the Coast Guard and has been active since 1981. In 1982 RUBY proved her seaworthiness by winning the treacherous Farallones Race. She is an ocean going vessel and has made several cruises to Mexico.
