is this\"laid down?\"

"Laid down" could have several meanings. One is - how can I say it neutrally? - "copulation" :oops:
Are you familiar with the poems of Jim Morrison from "The Doors"? There the topic is reoccurring.

I really doubt Jim Morrison was thinking at submarines when using the "laid" term. Maybe torpedoes? :D

Laid Down
Launching
etc are not important terms in live of one ships.
They are very important for shipyard, as they are usually
one of two most important , that aftre them shipyard
received parts of payment. On this way they are cleary
defined as these should be some responsible persons
on the side of the purchasers, who accepted the terms.
Even when the ships was built for the Romanian Navy
at Navy Shipyard, and they both belongs to Marine Ministerium.

I must admit, I was never much of a fan of The Doors or of Jim Morrison. However, there are many shades of meaning to the term "laid down" that do not involve an exchange of bodily fluids. It is supposed to denote the very beginning of construction, when assembled materials are first joined together. Sometimes there would be a ceremony involved, hardly as grand as a launching.
Launching would seem to be the event least liable to confusion, but it seems there was some "wiggle room" in this concept as well.
Sometimes the date of completion was made equal to the date of commissioning. Or it might be the date when the ship was handed over for trials, or the date when trials were completed, or...whatever. Each navy had its own definition, and that definition could change over time.

By the way, on the WW2 website, the picture displayed in the profile of the NMS Marsuinul in in fact that of German U-boat U-26, of the Type I A.

For comparison, here is the picture from the site and a model of the U-25, the only other boat in the class:
