Cleveland – The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw, a 240-foot icebreaker homeported in Cheboygan, Mich., is conducting buoy operations along western Lake Michigan as part of Operation Spring Restore.

Over the weekend the Mackinaw crew repositioned shoal buoys off the entrance to Burns Harbor, Ind. to better mark a shoal created by Hurricane Sandy that covered much of the entrance to this critical commercial port.
