A scheduled acceptance ceremony was postponed from Tuesday until Thursday until more details can be completed. The vessel is scheduled to undergo loading of supplies and a training period before departing the Menominee River Dec. 8 for a shake-down cruise that is scheduled to end in Cheboygan Dec. 17. Once the Coast Guard accepts the ship as delivered, the countdown begins towards the Mackinaw's arrival in its homeport. Source: Tribune
