In 1955, Lynn Dean and his brother Orin, married the concept of a jack up rig with an offshore supply vessel. They lowered the legs to the bottom of the seafloor and elevated the boat above the water to the level of the offshore platform. This self-elevating, self-propelled vessel provided a stable platform for workers to address the needs of an offshore platform used for the oil & gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico. There were hundreds of the platforms to service in the GOM - no short supply of work for the two brothers. The Dean brothers formed a company simply called Elevating Boats, Inc. to design, build, and operate their new vessel concept - the liftboat.
