The story begins 1947, when Kerr McGee drilled the first offshore oil well in the world, in the Gulf of Mexico, off the mouth of Bayou Lafourche.   That same year, her father, Walter K. (Pappy) Boyd and his brother-in-law Donald Bollinger started their first offshore supply/utility boat company to service that well and others to follow.  B & B Towing Company was also started that same year.  The first Bollinger shipyard, started the year before, built those first boats.

Mary Lynn has spent a lifetime in an around the oil industry and related service and marine industries. She and her husband started their first offshore supply boat company in 1971.  Lytal Companies became well known in the Gulf of Mexico.  In business for 35 years, the companies worked for most of the major oil companies.
