It would be good to give the "home" of the Sea Scouts now. Is it Redwood City? Thanks!!

The Sea Scouts have 4 "Ships" which operate out of Redwood City and 1 "Ship" out of Sierra Pt./Brisbane. Each crew is called a "Ship" and each Ship has multiple boats. Two of the Ships are Palo Alto based and 2 are Redwood City based--that means that the crews are organized in Palo Alto or Redwood City even though all the boats are docked in Redwood City.

I was stationed on the Olympic Venture (PTB-951) for three years. Sad to see her be retired from the Navy, but glad she will be used for a good purpose.

I was stationed on this cutter when it's Hull # was 95310 its name was the Coast Guard cutter cape wash I was on it from 1968 to 1970 it was stationed in Monterey California and moral may California if you are interested and would like to know some of the heraldic action that this cutter has seen both in law enforcement and search and rescue I can tell you many stories including saving the lives of high school students off a fishing vessel in Morro Bay California my e-mail is slotopteam@aol.com I am very excited to see she is going to still be in service as I believe that it was my experience in the United States Coast Guard under the command of Capt. Ray Riutta retired vice admiral of the US Coast Guard help to make me the man that I am today. I now live in San Luis Obispo California.
