Thread: weldcraft opinion

  1. #1

    Default weldcraft opinion

    Would anyone like to voice their opinion of the Weldcraft Ocean king 24' or 26'. Primary use would be fishing out of Homer and PWS, with some 2 night trips.
    Thanks for your input.

    Good boat. Roof is higher than the Hewescraft, Boulton's Explorer. You don't bang your head if you are 6'2" or shorter. I have a 24' but would like to have the 26' for the extra room and toilet. They are also better laid out inside. It rides great and cuts through the waves easily. I would recommend it.

    You're going to bang your head on just about anything you buy that's not a pilot house . . . I'm 6'4" and you learn to duck.

    I agree. I used to have a 24 foot Alaskan searunner. I am 6'6" and rarely hit my head. Normal sized people were always hitting their heads, especially going out the walk through windshield. I guess us tall guys are just used to ducking.

    This thread might be useful. It compares the hewes to the weldcraft.
