Is the omission of the Scuba MB an error? If not, are those hours to be counted as "swimming"? YES, Scuba is a valid MB
Would the hours needed to earn Boardsailing and Snorkeling emblems count as "swimming"? YES
Then I asked a followup, Whether any activities before the award was available should count, similar to how merit badges are done where they don't count? YES, prior activities any time during Boy Scout or Venturing carreer count.
Not sure what you mean by how they got answered. I was emailed back. Seems simple enough.
