Stop Work Order trip

Michelle was great in setting us up with a boat that fit our family perfectly (4 adults and 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 9). She was always available to answer our questions and offer suggestions for the trip. Dani and Ryan exceeded our expectations as far as planning our itinerary and were especially good with the kids. We were never bored and each day was special. The food was amazing and all our preferences were met. Ryan was a great bartender introducing us to local special cocktails. We would gladly go again and would pick the same boat. Dave and Diana.

More Than We Could Have Dreamed

We are home and back in the groove, doesn’t take long for that to happen. We find ourselves drifting back to our days on “Stop Work Order”!!! Our experience for 6 days is one that is somewhat hard to put into words because was everything and so much more than what we dreamed it would be. We arrived at Red Hook and were greeted by smiles that made us feel like close friends meeting. Boarding Stop Work Order pretty much took our breath away as it sat sparkling in the water and waiting for us was a bottle of “bubbly” chilled and ready to sip as we departed port. The yacht was immaculate and we were shown to our staterooms which we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of room each stateroom had. The crew had everything ready for the “kings and queens”!! I say that as that is how we were treated by them. Every detail was in place and for the next six days the crew would take us to destinations that we will remember for a lifetime. The food was 10 star quality prepared fresh each day. What the chef puts out of that galley is simply amazing along with the perfect presentation. The four of us were celebrating our wedding anniversaries, so she apparently caught wind of that and made a very special steak dinner with the most delicious chocolate cake including candles, It brought us to tears. They are definitely a team who work well together and care about their guests on board. We came home with two new friends as that is how we all felt while sailing the BVI with this boat and crew. They were informative, fun, loving, and showed a passion for their work. It did not go unnoticed by any one of us. We thank you so very much for everything. It will be in our memory forever and we feel blessed to have had this wonderful opportunity with you and your staff. We love our crew and hope to see them again. Thanks for the Memories,

Fabulous Vacation

What a fabulous vacation! We are so fortunate to have you as our crew for this family vacation to the BVI's! From the champagne toast in our matching attire to our fabulous meals every day, we were well the Hank Aaron of cooking and bartending! We enjoyed the snorkeling, fishing, beach days, paddle boarding, kayaking, soccer on the beach and exploring Anegada by jeep. The scuba and the shell seeking!!!! Bill was thankful for the doctor you introduced him to at the Anegada Reef Hotel for his much needed pain killers 😉 This relaxing trip is the best way to kick of 2019 for our family! We truly hope that you enjoyed meeting us as much as we enjoyed you and your hospitality! We are thankful to have seen Anegada! Loblolly Bay....spectacular! Cow Wreck Beach....even more beauty. The LOBSTER!!!!!!!! Some nice touches: the dolphin to greet us, the gorgeous sunrises and sunsets, the double rainbow at Cooper Island, and your easy going attitudes to cater to our every needs!

Dreams Came True

As we sit here on our last morning, the skies of St. John are crying....the VI is sad to see us go! What we did know about this trip: the sun, the water, the sand, the beauty, the two delivered in spades! What we didn't expect: the amazingly prepared and served food, the added comforts on every level, the ability to be so relaxed at the hands of such a competent captain, but mostly the hours of laughs with our new friends, Stop Work Order's crew. Using your gifts the way that you do, to make peoples' wildest dreams come true?!?! That is something immeasurable and can't be explained unless you experience it! We so loved including you in our fun and jokes. You will truly be in the hearts of the Iowa Eight forever. You have not seen the last of us!!!! Love, Tom, Sandy, Maria,Joel, Beth, Joe, Stacy and Kevin P.S. When we began to plan this trip we called it a trip of a lifetime. It has been just that! We couldn't have imagined it any better. This may have been the inaugural couples trip for the #iowaeight but it certainly is not the last. We cannot thank you both enough for the care and professionalism you've shown us this week. We very much appreciate it! Answering our countless questions, laughing with us and not at as! Dani- the food has been INCREDIBLE. Ryan - you know what you are doing with this boat! Thank you for safely getting us to and from so smoothly. We will certainly be recommending you two and Stop Work Order to everyone we meet as you two are part of our Iowa Eight family now whether you like it or not! Thank you again for an amazingly relaxing and memorable trip!

When we came on this trip we were hopeful to have a crew that would not only provide a great experience but also join in the fun! Fortunately for us, we were here on your birthday week and your participation made our week even that much better! The food, tours, and drinks were spectacular. More than that, we enjoyed "winning our age group" with help from you! You are welcome in our homes any time you are in N.C. and I hope our paths cross again. You have a special spirit about you that makes you naturals at your jobs in the best living room in the world! Thank you so much from all of us!

Your Crew

catamaran stop work orderCAPTAIN RYAN AND CHEF/MATE DANI

Ryan and Dani are an award winning duo, amassing a lifetime of experience and knowledge throughout their chartering career to date. These two possess a genuine ability to seamlessly mix fun with professionalism, leaving guests feeling welcome and well-accommodated. Dani and Ryan bring the culmination of their vast career experience to the guests of their newest endeavor, Stop Work Order.

Captain Ryan took to the great outdoors from the very start, growing up in the countryside of Ohio. Whether he was playing football or baseball, boating on the many nearby lakes, or taking family fishing trips to the lakes of Canada, he could be found enjoying what nature had to offer. Ryan brings that same appreciation for the outdoors to his career as a professional charter captain. He holds a 50-ton Coast Guard Credential with a sailing endorsement and gained a wealth of critical knowledge over the past 2 years, captaining a 55-foot sailing catamaran all throughout the Caribbean. Diving is such an extreme passion for Captain Ryan that he has recently become a PADI certified dive instructor with over 200 recorded dives. Ryan is also known to whip up award-winning cocktails, having won Best Cocktail at the Fall VICL Yacht Show 2 years in a row!

Chef Dani brings along an adventurous spirit that is bound to rub off on those around her. Also growing up in Ohio, she spent her time being very active whether it was playing softball, golfing, fishing or, most of all, being in or near the water. Her love of the water carried over as she spent time on her high schools swim team, with friends on Lake Erie, or in her backyard pool. Her first trip to the Virgin Islands at age 17 made her realize that one day she would trade the ponds, lakes, and chlorine for the open ocean. She made that trade in 2012 and has been immersing herself in the Caribbean culture ever since. For the last 2 years she has been the chef aboard a 55 foot sail catamaran, honing her culinary skills and delighting her guests’ taste buds with a wide range of cuisines. Over the course of the last 2 years she has become proficient in many different culinary styles such as vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, and kosher, just to name a few. Her attention to detail and great sense of humor leaves her guests well-fed and entertained! She is up for any challenges to create new and exciting meals that fit her guests’ preferences and desires.

Ryan and Dani are excited to deliver high-end vacations to their guests, offering friendly, personable service and professionalism that matches the luxury, comfort and accommodation of their newest venture, Stop Work Order. Over the course of the last 2 years they have sailed over 3,500 nautical miles spanning all the way to Grenada. Their passion for people, love of the water and sailing creates both an adventurous and a welcoming environment felt by all.
