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.
