  • Lifelong dream becomes reality

    A lifelong dream shared by partners Eric Lane and Tom Jefferson has recently produced a new business located on State Road 24, just west of the Bronson Speedway.

    Both Eric and Tom have set out to fill a void in the marine industry. “Bronson is the Gateway to the Gulf,” said Eric, and this is why we chose Bronson to open Outboard Rehab. While there is one major marine center in Gainesville, another in Ocala and Old Town, none have, until now located in the corridor between Gainesville and the Gulf Coast. Eric and Tom hope Outboard Rehab will fill this void.
