U.S.S. Batfish - Mesmerizing Mammaries

As you drive on the access roads to the U.S.S. Batfish, and you look east, you will see two City of Muskogee domed water tanks, rising from mounds. If you look at just the right moment, they look like breasts. So do two tanks at the nearby Port of Muskogee if you REALLY use your imagination.

World War II Sub - U.S.S. Batfish

I was very impressed. I've worked at cape Canaveral sub base for 25 years on Trident II Subs and was glad I took the detour to see this.

USS Batfish. WW2 Sub - U.S.S. Batfish

We visited the U.S.S. Batfish in August 2009. The veterans' society that owns it was collecting donations for a paint job restoration. The Batfish was overwhelming and impressive, and even more so as one walks through the interior. The air conditioning was a huge plus.

I didn't know what to expect when I decided to visit the Batfish, but surprisingly, it was the major highlight of that road trip!

USS Batfish - Submarine

The USS Batfish is undergoing a re-dedication and re-discovery! The Batfish is now air conditioned.

Special events are also enhanced with WWII Living History re-enactors, who serve as members of the crew. This unique group lives on the submarine 24 hrs a day for an entire weekend every August for V-J Day recognition, allowing visitors a unique glimpse into the Batfish past, as they interact with crew members in period uniform portraying life aboard a submarine.

If you've seen the Batfish - come back and see her again. You haven't seen anything yet! New wartime paint scheme soon to be restored!
