57ft Converted Ship Boat, 49 Passengers
The LADY JANE is a 57 foot shrimp boat built in 1987. In 2006, Captain Larry Credle decided to convert her to passenger service. DeJong and Lebet provided all naval architecture services. This included required modifications to the structure, to the piping systems, and a stability analysis. The vessel now operates out of Brunswick, Georgia, as a USCG certified 49 passenger shrimper. Following are a couple of excerpts from their webpage:
