Paul Burnett of CTI, Inc. was onsite for the unique installation of our Fastrack 022® commercial tent. This 40’ wide by 80’ long unit was installed onto the deck of the MV Abegweit Ice Breaker Ferry, now operating under the Columbia Yacht Club. The ship is permanently moored on Lake Michigan along the Chicago lake front. The MV Abegweit was originally designed as the most powerful ice breaker in… history when it set sail in 1946. She measures 372 feet in length and displaces 7,000 tons. The area on the back of the ship where the tent was installed was a tight fit and the tent is actually bolted to the steel deck of the ship where cars use to drive on while it was operating as a ferry. The tent was installed using 6 people in some pretty heavy winds and rain but everything went smoothly. Columbia Yacht Club plans to use the tent year round for parties, weddings, and special events.
