USS Zumwalt, under construction at Bath Iron Works on Tuesday, was put in the water Monday without a formal ceremony, but will have a christening and formal naming next spring. The official ceremony for the U.S. Navy's newest and, at 610 feet, largest destroyer was postponed earlier this month because of the federal government shutdown.
