Pack 351 visits the Sea Scouts

Today Pack 351 gathered at North Breakwater Dock and got the great privilege to ride on the local Sea Scout vessel the MV Reliant.

We had 11 scouts, 13 parents and 4 siblings join us. We had a great time cruising the Willamette up to Cathedral Park in St. Johns.

The MV Reliant  is a 64-foot Distribution Box Boat originally built February 1955 for the United States Navy in San Diego, CA .

This river tour took us by the largest dry dock on the west coast that is currently working on some Naval supply ships, past a tug boat pushing a petroleum barge as well as passing under most of the bridges in Portland. Many of our scouts and even some parents got the privilege to steer the boat as we headed up the river.

A very neat new experience to travel along the river as well as to learn about another arm of the scouting community and the programs the Sea Scouts offer for youth ages 10 and up.
