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

The U.S.S. Batfish Military Museum is much larger than expected -- very cool. Admission into park is $7 for adults.

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.

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!
