Sea Scouts Safety at Sea day with the U. S. Coast Guard

|

We attended the Sea Scouts Safety at Sea day with the U. S. Coast Guard at Coast Guard Sector San Diego last weekend with our Sea Scout Ship, 2013. The event was jam packed with fun activities including entering a life raft in a survival suit, starting and using dewatering pumps, Vessel Safety Checks, distress calls and Joint Harbor Operations Center (JHOC) tour, Jayhawk helicopter tour, pipe patching, lighting off flares and knot tying.
