I never thought I'd find anyone with a rainier plankowner plaque! So she's just sitting there rusting away? shame.. I'd like to fly to Seattle one day to remember.
Hey all. Sorry for the late reply. USNS (USS always to me) Rainier sits pier side, decommissioned near Seattle WA. I have some shipmates living/working there confirm this, sad to say. She was a beautiful fast ship, 2nd in her class of a new design (Supply class). BUT a fatal flaw was the government said she was too expensive to keep her going- uh she was a new design(fastest supply ship), new type, of course its going to be different and more expensive - I don't think someone in DC read her original design plans.
As plank owner's, we're sad to see her not working the job she was made for, as taxpayers its a disgusting waste of taxpayer money.
Some of the most memorable times of my life spent on her decks, watch, mount 60 and 50 captian, VBSS Vessel Boarding search and seizure and of course doing the AYE I had too much RUM ye matee/sober up walk up to cross the quarterdeck in many a foreign port ARGH!!
