Ferry Pilot

I have recently bought a 1950 Ryan Navion in CA, and found that it had an problem. The problem was repaired and the plane has a New annual. It took awhile for this to happen, ( thank you Covid) but in the mean time I had move away to WA. About a month ago, a friend and I started to fly it up. But as we were flying the CO alarm went off. We landed and found there was a problem with heater which is now fixed. In the mean time, I started a new job and no longer have the time to go to CA and pick-up my own airplane. I was counting on friends, but they have their own jobs and families.  That and PNW weather can make it tight to move the plane on a short notice. I am looking for a Ferry pilot that I could hire to bring my plane home. How do I find one I can count on and get the cost of this operation?  Your recommendations are appreciated

It's that 25 in type you may have trouble finding.  Have you talked to the American Navion Society?
