Sea Scouts - Ship List

          Ships and Sea Scout units within Crescent Bay Council is as mysterious as it is confusing.  A Sea Scout unit was started within the Council in 1925 before there was a ship for them to sail. Then, during the late 1920's, individual Troops began forming Sea Scout patrols as part of their Troop. The Council purchased a boat called the "Mischief" in 1926 and Troop Sea Scouts had use of the Mischief along with the Council Sea Scout Unit which ultimately became Ship 87.
          One by one, additional boats were procured and by the later 1920's, Sea Scout units were shifting to specific boats instead of Troops. To add to the confusion, Ship 87 then sponsored the formation of another Ship within itself called the Islander, Ship 16. When the Senior Scout program evolved into Explorer Scouts in the late 1940's, Crescent Bay had "Sea Explorers and "Sea Scouts".
          This list has been
carefully assembled from Council documents, newspaper articles and other available information. It should be considered as a work-in-progress guide to documenting Sea Scouting within Crescent Bay Area Council and not a definitive cataloging.

NOTE: This list includes Ships, Sea Scout Troops of the 1920's and Sea Explorer Posts. See the Troop List and the Explorer Post List for additional information.

NOTE: In 1928, the following Santa Monica Troops were known to have Sea Scout Units within them: 1; 2; 10; 11; 15; 16; 38
