Sea Scouts – Chief Solano District

Mt. Diablo Silverado Council – Sea Scouts ~  link to the current ships

Chief Solano currently does not have a ship, but we are looking for parents and sea scouts to start a ship in our district.  If you have an interest, email me at:

Former Ships in Chief Solano District

Ship 8046 – Seabee,  sponsored by American Legion
Ship 8001 – Chief Solano,  sponsored by Solano Maritime Foundation
Ship 139 – Sea Horse, sponsored by Solano Maritime Foundation

These ships sailed around the bay, took veterans on Memorial Day and Veterans Day to see the  Battleship USS Iowa when it was a part of the mothball fleet.  The Sea Scouts are trained in seamanship, helped to develop character and moral values..  They also participate in Regattas which are a weekend of fun (athletic and social events), fellowship, and nautical competition.
