About Us

A mobile East Texas boat maintenance service forged by veterans

Sometimes, all it takes is a great idea. Float Fix founders Mike Coffen and Jerry Branum have sailed through countless waters throughout the country over their decades as passionate boat owners, but in that time, neither have ever stumbled upon a care-free and convenient way to maintain their boats.

While conversing over lunch, Mike and Jerry talked about a business concept for an "on the water" boat maintenance in East Texas lakes, including Lake Tyler, Lake Cherokee, Lake Palestine, and Cedar Creek Lake. The twist? These boats would never have to leave the water, and that’s how Float Fix was born.

Like you, Mike and Jerry, as well as their carefully selected team of boat technicians in East Texas, have all been through those dreadful, inevitable moments when they had to take their boat in for routine maintenance and wait weeks at a time for their boats to return. This is even tougher when you’re living on a lake. It’s a vicious cycle. And for what? A simple oil change?

It’s because of Mike and Jerry’s understanding and experience with those distressing situations that they had a state-of-the-art, custom barge created for Float Fix. This watercraft is equipped with the proper tools to get the job done that will save you money and repeated frustration. Ultimately, it’s all about servicing our customers on their time, not the other way around. 10% Military Discount Available!
