Ship 25 is proud of its affiliation with Troop 25.  This year we offered the Scouts from the Troop the opportunity to come down on the Chesapeake Bay for a weekend and earn BSA's Small Boat Sailing and Motor Boating Merit Badges.  The Ship was represented by the Skipper, Mate CJ, Boat Captain Drew, and Boatswain-elect Matt.  Attendees from the Troop were Zach, Shawn, Mack, and Tom.  After our land Scout buddies mastered the basics Friday night and Saturday, we all set sail Saturday afternoon on Sea Scout Training Vessel Kuan Yin for a cruise to Dobbin Island on the Magothy River.  We enjoyed a splendid night sail down the Chesapeake Bay, then anchored off the island for the night.  We went swimming the next morning, and then returned to Kuan Yin's home port at White Rocks Marina on Rock Creek, Patapsco River, MD.  

Cost of food:  $15.  

Eight merit badges earned by four land Scouts in one weekend, with fun in the process: priceless!

A lovely home on Gibson Island.                                     It would be nice to use this boat next year!
