I welcome positive feedback.

Sea Scout Squadron events and New England
Sea Scout Flotilla events. |
year the crew has zeroed in on advancement,
a key ingredient to learning and demonstrating
leadership. The entire crew has advanced
to the Apprentice rank with several about
to advance to the rank of Ordinary.
continue to have many consultants help the
crew keep the ships boats seaworthy as well
as provide much appreciated training (including
the USCG) , time and equipment in the interest
of teaching new skills to the crew required
for them to advance through the ranks.
