The Coast Guard Cutter Mackinaw (WLBB 30) is the largest CG vessel on the Great Lakes. Based in Cheboygan, Michigan, the Mackinaw was built in Marinette Marine's Wisconsin shipyard and "splash" launched on April 2, 2005.
This photo was captured with a Nikon E8700 at f/5.6, with an exposure of 1/391 second and ISO-50. Taken from across the river in Menominee, Michigan.
Keith Stokes usually has a camera in his hand - photographing Mackinaw City & Mackinac Island in northern Michigan for MightyMac.org, Kansas & Kansas City for KansasTravel.org and science fiction conventions for MidAmericon.org. His photos appear regularly in Locus Magazine, the Food Channel Magazine and other publications and books. His photograph of Pillsbury Crossing was the cover of a recent K-Stater Magazine.

Great capture, very cool action shot!
Very cool! What is a "splash launch"? God bless!

Holy smokes! I mean, splash! The action in this photo immediately pulled me in to investigate. Thank you for your description! Great capture! L/F
The boat was being launched from a shipyard in WIsconsin and I was standing in Michigan, across the river, taking the photo. It is based in Cheboygan, Michigan.
Fantastic Capture! Is Mackinaw in WI or MI? Can't remember...lol

Such an exciting shot! Right time, right place, right photographer! :-)
Perfect timing and clarity, Keith! V
Thank you, Christy. That was a great day. I want to be at more launches
Wow, awesome boat action!! voted
Superb action photograph.
It was fun, well worth the special trip from Kansas. Also one of my other photos from that day was used for the cover of U. S. Coast Guard Engineering, Electronics & Logistics Quarterly.
Neat photo, Keith. Looks like a pretty cool event to witness.
