The third and final Seawolf-class submarine, the USS Jimmy Carter, will be christened June 5. The Navy's first ceremony for the Jimmy Carter, the commissioning, will take place sometime after the ship is delivered to the Navy. The submarine was supposed to be finished in 2001, but the Navy decided to modify it in 1999 to add a section that adds 100 feet to its length. That space will create enough room for dozens of special forces and their equipment.
