In the closing months of World War II, a Florida-based boat-building firm built hundreds of assault boats under an "impossible" deadline and helped General Dwight Eisenhower defeat Hitler's armies along the Rhine. The feat drew the praise of the U.S. Government and the attention of National Geographic. Today that same firm, Correct Craft of Orlando, Florida, builds the Ski Nautique, considered by many the world's foremost water ski towboat. Behind the genius of Correct Craft, America's oldest family-owned boat building firm, lies the inspiring story of the Meloon family and their commitment to honor God in their business decisions. They kept that commitment, even in times of hardship, and it led them to risk bankruptcy rather than compromise the firm's Christian-based business ethic. Roaming from Cypress Gardens to Sea World, from professional water ski tournaments to nations abroad, these pages tell the story of one family's remarkable impact "on the waters of the world."
