PRLog - June 4, 2010 - STUART, Fla. -- Johnny’s Marine Service recently celebrated its grand opening by restoring a needy boat for the US Sailing Center of Martin County. The experience went so well, that owner, John Wigle, decided to seek out other groups that might need his assistance. He contacted the Sea Scouts in Stuart and found out that their sailboat’s hull was separating. Wigle decided to give a few days to bring this sailboat back for the Scouts.

The Sea Scouts is sometimes called the Boy Scouts of America’s best kept secret. Sea Scouting is a coed outdoor program for young adults 14 - 20 years old and their adult advisors. Sea Scouting had its beginning at a camp fire in England when Lord Baden-Powell, a founder of the Boy Scouts, voiced the hope that older Scouts would be interested in learning about boat management and seamanship. He stressed the need for young men to prepare themselves for service on their country's ships. The Sea Scouts eventually caught on in America and many of them went on to serve in the US Navy. The Sea Scout ship in Stuart, FL (#5801) is run by Skipper James W. Saunders who can be reached at (772) 692-4441 or find out more about Sea Scouting at http://www.seascout.org/
