The Coast Guard, and cutters Mackinaw, have had a presence in Cheboygan for more than 75 years. The original Mackinaw, commissioned in 1944, tells many stories about the history of icebreaking in the book available through the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keepers Association.  Author Sandy Planisek of Mackinaw City tells the story in Icebreaker Mackinaw. The book is a stunning history of the ship, its mission, and the pride in her expressed by the young Coast Guard members  that guided her for 60 years.
