Sunair is pleased to announce that its RT-9000 radios are now featured in the Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum, showcasing its place in rich history of the vessel. The retired Icebreaker Mackinaw was built in 1944 and retired in 2006. During its service, it was never stopped by ice in the Great Lakes and is now tied to a pier in Mackinaw City, MI near the Mackinac Bridge. The Icebreaker Mackinaw Maritime Museum has been operating the ship as a museum since its retirement with it open to the public from Spring to Fall. Many key areas of the ship are already on the tour, including one of the three engine rooms containing two of the six Fairbanks Morse twin-opposed diesel engines. More information on the ship and the museum organization is available at the following URL: http://www.themackinaw.org
