Significance: When the Mackinaw was launched, she was the most powerful icebreaker in existence. She was specifically built for service on the Great Lakes and the only vessel built in her class. Her long service career, sixty-two years, made this ship a hero and an icon not only for the men and for women who served on her, but also for the mariners who sailed on the Great Lakes.
