FLORIDA SPORTSMAN PROJECT DREAMBOAT — We are beyond excited to be on yet another season of Florida Sportsman Magazine Project Dreamboat! In seasons 1 and 2 we are seen doing a lot of custom fiberglass work, paint work, and Mercury Marine repowers; but since the Pandemic hit we have transitioned into a whole new ball game! In this season, you’ll see us create custom acrylic dashes, faux wood boats, custom retro designs, and more! We renovated the back bay, which was previously used for fiberglass projects, into a State-Of-The-Art Custom Skiff Shop which also birthed a new business — TRB Customs. We also have a new laser engraving machine along with a complete Cerakote station!
