Wisconson Maritime Museum in Manitowoc

We stopped in Manitowoc to tour the Wisconson Maritime Museum. This museum is unexpected but it turns out that many World War II submarines were built here and they have included displays on the fishing industry and Great Lakes shipping.

The most interesting part by far is the restored USS Cobia submarine. Though the Cobia was not made here it is identical to the submarines that were. The last picture above is me taking aim at through the 3 inch deck gun (3 inches is the diameter of the shell!)

Thank you.. I was looking on line for pics of the Cobia, as I worked on her several years ago.
