This is the SSS Lotus. She is sailed and maintained by Sea Scout Ship 303.

Sodus Bay is the home port of the Lotus, and most of her travels are on Lake Ontario, though she has recently ranged as far as Lake Erie, the St. Lawrence Seaway, and down the Hudson River to New York City.

Sea Scout Ship 303 operates as part of the Seneca Waterways Council. During the school year, the ship meets Monday nights in Webster, NY.


This webpage is an effort to bring together much information about Lotus and Ship 303 which has formerly been scattered throughout print, video, and the web. Please contact the webmaster for more information on Lotus or the scouts who keep her running,.
