L&M BOTRUC RENTALS

L&M Botruc Rentals claim to be one of the longest serving supply boat companies on the Gulf of Mexico, and sure enough if one does a little research you find that their first ship "Botruc" was built in 1957, to be followed almost immediately by Botruc II and Botruc III. Within the context of the world of the supply vessel this was only two years after the arrival of the first purpose built ship, the Ebb Tide.

The company is still family owned and hails from Golden Meadow, Louisiana.

At the time of the 2013 update there have been no changes to the company, and as far as is known no newbuildings ordered.
