    Re: Wisconsin Maritime Museum

    I was in Manitowoc on business about ten years ago and I went to the maritime museum and visited the submarine.

    Since we both lived in Chicago Frank, I am sure we both went aboard the Silversides SS-236 many times when it was tied up to Navy Pier (it is now in Muskegon, MI,) and of course you visited the U-505 as I have many times since I was a kid. I remember my father taking me down to the beach in 1954 to watch the sub being hauled out of Lake Michigan and across the Outer Drive to be placed next to the Museum of Science and Industry.

    When in SF you should see:
    USS Pampanito (SS-383) is a World War II Balao class Fleet submarine museum and memorial that is open for visitors daily at San Francisco's Fisherman's ...

    and in Honolulu visit:

    Bowfin S-238 in Pearl Harbor.

    In Long Beach visit the Scorpion Russian submarine moored next to the Queen Mary. It is amazing the contrast in the size of these two vessels. You get a combination ticket to visit both.

    Heck, we got one o' those just over the border. :-) I can think of no better reason to visit Rimouski, Quebec, just a short hop due north of the middle of nowhere in the state of Maine, than to visit a retired Oberon sub (if I was a diver I might go for the enormous sunken ocean liner, but I am not, so the submarine on the beach is the attraction).
    Thank you for the suggestion of the National Maritime Museum in Australia. If I ever travel... or rather WHEN I eventually travel that far... I will surely visit.
