Introducing: Boats N’ Hoes


PCB Chamber Spotlight

Boats N Hoes LogoHey Panama City Beach! We’re the Dunigans. My name is Vanessa, nice to meet you! Thomas, my husband, was called to Tyndall Airforce Base in November 2022 for a welding contract. After 10 years of traveling the country for the Pipeline Industry, we decided to stay here, in our favorite state, and start a business. Since he has 19 years of mechanic field experience, a service truck, and the skills to fix just about anything, we decided to start up Boats N’ Hoes Maintenance and Repair LLC. Boats N’ Hoes Maintenance and Repair LLC is of course a play on words, and a nod to the timeless theatrical production, Step Brothers. Since we offer mobile diesel mechanic services to both boats and equipment, it fits perfectly. Plus, it makes our company name easy to remember and fun!

What makes us a unique, yet helpful, business?

Boats N Hoes TruckWe offer mobile diesel mechanic services in the field. If you own a fleet of trucks, it will cost you approximately a full day (sometimes more) of profit to get your company DOT Inspections done on your trucks. Why take profit out of your pocket/ be considered “down,” when we can come to you after hours or on weekends and have all DOT Inspections done in a timely manner?

The same thing goes for general maintenance. If your equipment or trucks need to be greased or need a monthly/bimonthly inspection, we come in and take care of everything, so that stress is off your shoulders. We also keep track of your business’s maintenance expectations, so you don’t even have to think twice about it anymore.

Of course, everyone breaks down and needs immediate attention. Downtime equals money loss! No one is in business to lose money, so our job is to come out as soon as possible, diagnose the issue, find the parts, and have you back up and running. No need to load up equipment (that equals more money with fuel and labor) and ship it to a dealership or shop for repair. Plus, the waiting game to hear back about the issues is always worrisome.

We are fully transparent and try to pinpoint your issue promptly.

Our full services include Total Fleet Maintenance, DOT Inspections, Engine Repair and Rebuild, Hydraulic Repair and Rebuild, Welding, and Fabrication.

We specialize in Caterpillar, Detroit, Volvo, Cummins, Isuzu, International, Mack, Hino, Komatsu, along with many other manufacturers.

We service the Florida Panhandle, if we can be of service to your company please call, (304) 880-0899 or (304) 651-3337. Visit our website at
