Narrative

Shallow cove 0.1 mi in extent, entered from the W between the N side of Bailey Peninsula and an unnamed island northward, on Budd Coast. Numerous low rocks almost join Bailey Peninsula and the unnamed island, forming the head of the cove and separating it from a similar cove just eastward. First charted in February 1957 by a party from USS Glacier. The name was suggested by Lt. Robert C. Newcomb, USN, navigator of the Glacier, after Electronics Technician 3d Class Robert I. Crane, USN, a member of the survey party.
