The Quartermaster Award is the highest rank in Sea Scouts.
The award is rich in history. The oldest Venturing award, the tradition of the Quartermaster has made a great impact on current Scouting. Those who have earned this award are looked upon to be experts in seamanship, knots and lashings, leadership, and a variety of water-related skills.
The Sea Scout must attend at least two thirds of all ship meetings over eighteen months, demonstrate marlinspike seamanship and leadership skills, demonstrate the ability to teach Sea Scouting, complete a community service project and pass a council level board of review. The Quartermaster emblem is a medal consisting of the Sea Scout emblem on a ship's wheel that is suspended from a solid dark blue ribbon that is in turn suspended from a bar bearing the design of a double carrick bend knot.
