Looking forward to spring with Sea Scout Ship 41

Sea Scouts from Ship 41 tubing on Lake Erie, from left, Derek Reid, guest, Zak Hamil and guest.

I joined Sea Scouts in the middle of summer after I started classes with Spirit of America. In that program we learned how to drive all types of boats and earned our Ohio State boating license at the end of the class. Every Tuesday during the summertime, weather permitting, from 7-8 p.m. the Sea Scouts go down to Bay Boat Club where we sail Lasers for an hour. 

I enjoy doing this because we have to put all the parts onto the boats and sail off on our own. Some of the days that we are down boating we will pull out the motorboat and go tubing for the evening. During the fall we had an opportunity to try water skiing for a day. I enjoyed going skiing because it was a cool chance to do something that you usually never get to do in your life.

In my time with the ship we have done many STEM projects. We built a boat made out of plastic recycled material for the Lake Erie Boat Float and then raced it at Edgewater Park. Another project that we did was to design our own life jacket after understanding all about buoyancy. It worked very well.
Please join us at our informational meeting at Bay Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, April 14, at 7 p.m. Sea Scouting is a fun co-educational program open to eighth-grade youth and above. For additional information, contact skipper@seascoutship41.org.
