ImageWashington state's unemployment rate has rocketed up to 9.2%. So it's not the best time to give up a steady job or start a new business. David Reid knows this, but in January he quit his job as an ultrasound engineer anyway to work full–time on his dream business. It's called Sail Transport Company.

Dave and his crew pick up locally grown, organic produce and honey from farmers on the Kitsap and Olympic Peninsulas and sail them back to waiting customers at Ballard's Shilshole Bay. Dave talked with KUOW's Jeannie Yandel about why he took such a big risk in a bad economy.
