Uniforms

As a service to the Sea Scout community, we are pleased to provide a free "vision check" so you can check your vision on-line, especially as it pertains to the new 2002 Sea Scout Uniform Regulations.  If you've already taken the vision check and now need to figure out why you may suddenly be experiencing difficulty telling who is a Sea Scout and who is not, check out the following resources:

For a photo of Ship 25 youth personnel outfitted in whites for ScoutFleet 2002 per the old 2000 regs and an officer with collar devices as opposed to shoulder straps or sleeve patches, click here.  Note that the photo was taken last summer and was not taken in anticipation of the subsequent uniform regulation changes.  Also, the following comments apply:
 
  1. The youth covers should have been more "down by the bow with a list to starboard", pre 2003 regs, or "squared, 1 inch above the the eyebrow, 2002 regs.
  2. The females should have been wearing white crew-neck t-shirts under their jumpers.
  3. The officer (our skipper) could stand to lose a little weight :-) 

The following diagram shows how to properly roll and tie the sailor's black neckerchief used on dress blues and undress whites per U.S. Navy Regs:
