U.S. Coast Guard Icebreaker Mackinaw

Built specifically for service on the Great Lakes, when Mackinaw was launched, she was the most powerful icebreaker in the world.  She went on to a 62 year service career, becoming an icon to the Great Lakes mariners and residents of coastal towns that depended on her to clear a path through the lakes’ thick ice.

When she was decommissioned, she became a museum ship in Mackinaw City, Michigan.
