The new Mackinaw's sophisticated propulsion package, computer-based navigation and steering, and state-of-the-art dynamic positioning system bring new technology to its mission as Guardian of the Great Lakes.
The old cutter's legacy would be carried through to the new ship's multi-mission capabilities of ice breaking, buoy tending, search and rescue, oil-spill response, and maritime homeland security.
June 10, 2006, marked the beginning of a new era.
In a one-of-a-kind ceremony, the original U.
Coast Guard cutter Mackinaw was decommissioned, followed by the commissioning of the new Great Lakes icebreaker that carries the same name.
