My name is John Bump
Welcome to my business page. My family and I have placed ourself in Jacksonville Florida after 3 years of traveling aboard our Westerly Sea Lord sailboat.
We have started a mobile marine shop out of an old police hostage negotiation vehicle and are serving the Jacksonville community.
The van serves as an excellent mobile marine shop and we are excited to share it with the boating community.
I have been working on engines with a degree in electrical engineering my entire adult life but shifted my skillsets when my family decided to travel full time. Together, my wife and I have built a reputation for our work and feel confident in our abilities to provide a much needed reliable service to this area.
We are proud to announce that are accepting new clients and legally ready to grow our community here in Jacksonville.
We are confident with most boat projects but specialize in mechanics, electrical systems, Solar and water maker installs.
15+ years in mechanics. Cars, Motorcycles, and Boats.
