The subject of this article pertains to the canon of the Forrest Gump novel but not the film.

Jenny is the name given to a shrimping boat purchased by Forrest Gump. He named it after the love of his life, Jenny Curran.

While Forrest enters the shrimping business in the novel, and owns shrimping boats, it is only in the film that any boat is shown to be named "Jenny".
