Welcome to the Site of
Being formerly Three Brothers Marine I am now consulting and teaching in the North Florida area (and sometimes beyond). Still offering my services in fiberglass boat repair except now I offer my experience so that you can complete your own project. A lot of the bigger consulting projects I work on are done at places such as in the yard at the St. John Boat Company here in Jacksonville, Fl. Always happy to serve whether helping you to manage your own job, or teaching you how to do the work.
Check out the samples of my own work on my Boat Work page.
Jacksonville / North Florida Region
Yep, that's me, all that and a little bit of Pirate too. When I get a spot of free time I do graphics for the web (and for boats), a bit of cartooning, a touch of carving, and when I get really bored I dress like a pirate and have a pint or two of grog.
...of course not all wives agree. The key is not to let it turn into a "project boat". It's often tempting to pick up that one you have been driving by every day. With its beautiful lines and classic shape you lose yourself in dreams of sailing the Seven Seas on your pristine yacht while ignoring the faded glass, rotten wood and the 3' tall grass growing all around it. A very wise man once told me, "If it's free you can't afford it". I have found that to be very true in the past.
My personal project at the
moment is a 1960 thirteen ft.
Boston Whaler. It is coming
right along and when
finished will be the 16th
one I have restored. Call me
crazy but it's what I do
when I am bored.
As you can see my work is cut out for me. I refuse to paint it so all the repairs and finish will be fiberglass and gel coat. I hate the ones people paint...
Thats not a motto, that's just what I do. Sometimes on the job I even teach those that want to learn, how to do their own maintenance and repairs in the process. So whether your doing fiberglass repair, gel coat repair, or just some over due boat detailing give me a call. Good advice may save you tons of money and hardships.
Be sure and check my work on the other pages in this site and remember, my goal is to put the "Fun back into your Boating"!
