Christening in Seattle for new ferry Kennewick
Thursday, May 26, 2011
SEATTLE (AP) -- Washington's newest ferry, the Kennewick, will be christened in a ceremony Friday afternoon in Seattle at the Vigor Shipyards, formerly Todd Pacific Shipyards.
The Transportation Department says House Transportation Chairwoman Judy Clibborn will break a bottle against a bulwark on the vehicle deck.
The Kennewick is the third new 64-car ferry. It follows the Chetzemoka and Salish.
From Seattle the Kennewick will be moved to Everett for outfitting. It should be delivered by the end of the year.
