You may have heard about meth labs being busted inside homes, trailers and apartments, but on Thursday, Volusia County deputies said they dismantled a meth lab in a sailboat.

Investigators said the boat was moored in the Intracoastal Waterway near Daytona Beach. A Volusia County task force and Daytona Beach police were tipped off about illegal activity taking place on boats in the area, investigators said.

Based on those leads, agents investigated a sailboat belonging to 50-year-old James Smith. Inside, they found a homemade generator used in making methamphetamine, along with other supplies. Smith was arrested and booked into the Volusia County Branch Jail on charges of manufacturing methamphetamine. A woman on the boat was also arrested on an outstanding warrant, deputies said.
