You were probably joking, but I wanted to clarify for the general
readership of this list. Sea Exploring will definitely stay within the
B.S.A., most probably within the Venturing division.
You still can enter the Navy or any other branch of the service as an E3 if
you are a Quartermaster. Able rank scouts can enter as E2 rank.
