Correct Craft and its manufacturing companies across the country participated in Manufacturing Day by hosting students at its factories.
Five Correct Craft plants from Florida to California invited students to learn about both boat manufacturing processes and job opportunities in marine manufacturing. Correct Craft companies also gave the students plant tours.
Centurion and Supreme Boats partnered with the Merced County Office of Education who brought local high school students to the factory.
The Centurion and Supreme teams provided the students an opportunity to see first-hand how boats are built and see the great jobs that exist in manufacturing.

PEG will host additional students from the Newberry Country Career Center next week.
SeaArk Boats partnered with local high schools and invited students in the agriculture/trade programs to the SeaArk factory for a thorough tour of their facility. Students learned how SeaArk boats are built and heard about the variety of careers available at SeaArk after they graduate.
Each year, Manufacturing Day is a great experience for Correct Craft teams and the students who visit, said Correct Craft President and CEO Bill Yeargin.
"We enjoy giving the next generation opportunities to learn about boat manufacturing and sharing the enthusiasm we have for our products and what we do," Yeargin added. "Students who visited our companies were able to increase their knowledge about the marine industry and hear about Correct Craft’s culture of ‘Making Life Better.' "
