Bill Yeargin, President and CEO of Correct Craft, and others, describe the rich history and faith culture of Correct Craft. Correct Craft, which builds Nautique boats, was founded by the Melloon family with the mission statement "To build boats for the glory of God." Along with many faith initiatives, they first strive to live in such a manner that employees, who may never go to church, come to Christ.
During World War II, the company was assigned by the US government (along with 3-4 other companies) to build over 400 boats in 30 days. This meant Correct Craft was expected to work on Sundays. Despite the pressure and huge output expected of them, the company stayed true to their ‘no work on Sabbath’ and succeeded in making the deadline! Meanwhile, the 3-4 other companies with the same task and worked Sundays fell short of the goal. From then on, the company was famous for both its work excellence and commitment to faith culture.
