WE HELP YOU WITH YOUR BOAT REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE
Actually we love all boats in general.
Sunshine Girl - our new project!
The latest BRAM project is a classic 1969 Bristol 42 Offshore trawler. Advertised originally by Bristol Yachts as an “ideal retirement home for a couple because of its comfort, seaworthiness, safety and economy of operation.” Tho partial to Grand Banks, this boat has incredible potential. Stay tuned for a progress report.

We're mobile in nature and not equipped to perform major repairs on vessels. That said, we possess decades of hands on experience in boat repair, maintenance and sourcing parts. Leaky windows, rotted wood, soft decks, cracking teak deck seams, peeling varnish/paint are time consuming problems. If you don't have the time or would rather not work on your boat contact us today.
Maybe you're not sure how to find potential problems before they become major, expensive concerns. Keeping your boat in tip-top condition helps keep you safe while maintaining value. Likewise it takes time, but usually not a lot of money. We'll work with you to create your own repair and maintenance schedule. From general cleaning and waxing to yearly brightwork renewing and system checks.
For over 40 years we've devoted as much time as possible to restoring and maintaining boats of all sorts. We especially love the classic wood trawlers, but understand what it takes to maintain glass as well. Our passion is working with people who love boating and take pride in their craft. Rather than spend your time maintaining your boat, call today to see how we can help.
What is COMO-BRAM
A little about me, Lance Como...
Back in 1979, I took some time off to travel in a converted 1966 Bluebird school bus/RV and ended up in Delray Beach Florida taking a job at a small marina called Marlinspike. The passion was instilled.
I spent 6 months working on a variety of boats pressure washing, scraping barnacles, replacing sacrificial keels, bottom painting and eventually replacing planks, portlights, deck seams, etc.
Since then I completely restored a '60 Owens 30' Sea Skiff Express, a '61 Chris-Craft 50' Constellation, a '73 Aquarius A23 sailboat, a '66 Columbia C26 MKI, with current projects a '72 Grand Banks 32 Classic and '76 Uniflite 36DC. All of those great boats required work to get them right — more often it's resealing port lights, rewiring electrical systems, or refreshing brightwork. Basic boat repair and maintenance usually goes a long way to being cruise ready.
In semi-retirement, I aim to help owners keep their vessel in tip-top, bristol condition. The expertise I've gained over the past 4 decades is a valuable asset and I mean to share it with others.
Lucky Maru 1972 Grand Banks 32 SOLD
Was sorry to see her go, happy for the new owner. And fortunate enough to be able to have him take my brother and me to New Bern NC to pick her up and deliver her to him in Deland FL... was a great final run! Even better have a new friend in Joe.
I was a Travelin' Man
Restoring boats or traveling - haven't been out of the country in 13 years but, passport has been renewed. Hoping after the America's Great Loop journey, I'll be able to head back to the Netherlands to rent a canal boat out of Sneek.
