It is with great sadness that we mourn the lost of Bob Comet. Bob was a docent at the museum who volunteered his time to the art of model ship building. He shared his knowledge and love for the craft with anyone who stopped by his table in the museum gallery. Bob built several dozen models, many from scratch with just wood, tools, his hands, and a set of original ship plans. Three of his models, the Revolutionary War brig Fair American, the torpedo boat USS Winslow (TB-5), and the patrol gunboat USS Nashville (PG-7), are on display in the museum gallery.
