The keel-laying ceremony is a celebrated tradition of laying down the backbone of a vessel, which is a milestone in making a ship come to life. The 70-foot catamaran is being built by Bay Ship & Yacht Co. of Alameda. It will showcase the advantages of hydrogen fuel cells for the commercial maritime industry, with construction expected to be complete by September 2019.
