2020 Grand Rapids Boat Show
We recently debuted our new Weldcraft 300 Cuddy King OS at the 2020 Chicago Boat Show. She WOWED attendees with her impressive size as well as the many custom features included in our "Great Lakes Edition" package. We are fortunate to have very talented people who can do custom welding, custom electrical systems, electronics, and custom fishing gear. Because of this we created this package specifically for fishing in the Great Lakes.
