Scott Mayer (Center) onboard Scientology's Excalibur

Scott took command of the Bolivar from Bob Young, who was captain for the trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles, whose voyage was memorialized by a song by a group called "Blues Image" named "Ride Captain Ride" which hopefully is playing in the background as you read this page. If not try this link to listen. I was one of the 73 sailors..on board the Bolivar for that trip.

The TSMY Bolivar, later renamed Excalibur, was an Ex-navy Sub chaser, commissioned in 1943, it had two, 2000 hp, turbocharged diesel engines, flank engine speed was 800 RPM. We all believed Hubbard's shore story.. that this was a "training vessel" for Sea Organization staff... in reality, Hubbard chose a sub-chaser, to be the 'get-away vehicle', for Scientology executives to escape a raid or crackdown by Federal authorities.

During the 1997 pickets of Clearwater, I asked Scott Mayer to ride shotgun for me in the Picket Truck,(funded by Bob Minton) ,because Scott was having trouble with his legs due to diabetic neurophathy, and later that day, it was Scott Mayer, that calling out the warning, that kept me from hitting a staged by osa homeless person, who had veered way out of the crosswalk to try and get hit by the truck, while turning left onto Ft Harrisson Street in front of Scientology in Clearwater. That's Scott sitting in the passenger seat, the first morning of the picket.

If I missed one that was posted, please email eulogies to

I think I was on the Bolivar with the early '70's.
May he rest in peace ...and dance with the angels :)

Too bad. He'll be missing a lot here. His many participations about what was happening in his city were great to read. And his global help has been a joy.
Rest in Peace, Scott.
