Athens, GA location
Shrimp Boats may have once been part of a chain, as there was another "Shrimp Boats" located in Athens, GA as late as the mid-1990s with the same logo and sign (albeit more faded than the Durham location's sign) -- by which time that establishment had already begun shifting to a Chinese cuisine. By ~2005, all remnants of the "Shrimp Boats" name were gone from the Athens location.
