Fellow Sea Scouts
I am SkIpper Lee Vulcan of the Hawaii Sea Scouts, Sea Explorer Ship
5095, the close's US exploring/sea Scout ship to you. I would be very
happy to get some of our Scouts exchanging email and trading stories.
As for our ship here, we have my ship in Honolulu, its very small in
numbers but hopefully we can build it up to about 20. We have three
sails boats in the water, two 20 foot cal's, and a 22 foot columbia, and
three small sail boats on trailers.
We have just start another ship in Maui and they are doing very well.
they are reporting over 50 youth and 20 adult leaders, I sponsored them
and in July gave them their first boat.
