Best Day at Cal Maritime

As a part of Keelhauler Week, we encourage everyone to pause and think about what being a Keelhauler means to them and some of their positive moments at Cal Maritime.  We are asking everyone in the Keelhauler Community to submit their Best Day at Cal Maritime and a picture either from that day or that represents the memory.  Our goal is to take the pictures and be able to make something that can become a permanent fixture on the campus.
