We have a Mariner Scout Ship in Central Region that is
interested in dually registering as a Sea Scout Ship.
Apparently, the GSUSA is even less supportive of Mariner
Scouting than our own BSA. They want to know how other GSUSA
units have accomplished that. They need to compete with
other ships, receive awards and recognition and support.
Their own uniforms, ranks, awards, etc. have been
discontinued by GSUSA. We would like to help them but
haven't any current practical advice available. We think
that there are some Mariners on the West Coast. We know that
there are some Senior Girl Scout Troops acting like Mariner
Scout Ships in Texas. We need to visit with any GSUSA units
that have also registered as Sea Scout Ships. We need to
know how that works, what is good, what is bad, etc.
