When I was young, we had a sea scout ship. You had to be 14 to be a member.
Then one day it was called a sea explorer post. I remember their ceremonial
presentations at the scout show (we had an arena type event for many years
before we went to a booth type event). I looked forward to being a member of
"Ship 13" but by the time I was old enough, they were no longer operational.
I equate sea scouts with sea explorers, just in a different time period.
