How much does it cost

Scouting costs are always a moving target.  But to compare a standard year, Sea Scouts costs about the same as a Boy Scout Troop – often less.  This assumes uniform of shirt, hat, belt.  All patches would be included in dues.  For High Adventure Years – the Ship charters our own boats saving the cost of a Captain.  These are historically several hundred dollars cheaper than Sea Base St. Thomas.
