USS Rankin

Recommended Posts

I was asked by the USS Rankin officer's alumni if I could get

some underwater photos and video of the USS Rankin off of

Stuart. I asked Randy Jordan of the Jupiter Dive Center if he

would be willing to help out. We set the trip up for 26May and

had about seven divers go. What a day, the seas were flat and

the skys were sunny and the seas were a nice blue. But

the water temp on the ship was around 50 degrees,

yes I mean 50 degrees. It made the visibility way over 100ft and I

think thats the best you will see on that 459ft wreck. What a dive.

I posted my photos on my web-site for the people who

served on the Rankin and Randy took one hell of a video.

Anyone get a chance go by the shop and watch it.

What is the story behind this ship. What was she? Where and when did she serve? How she she come to be where she is now? Dive particulars too, depth?, how far offshore? etc.
