Wrapping the main deck stern allows restoration of that area to continue during the wet winter and spring.
Students from the Historic Preservation Department at Clatsop Community College, under the supervision of instructor and Ferry Group Director Lucien Swerdloff, built a frame around the deck.
Students from the Tongue Point Seamanship Program, supervised by consultant Sam Shogren, assisted in finishing out the frame by adding laterals from the black "eyebrow" (it covers the bathrooms) to the deck frame. Then the thick white plastic was stapled to the frame.
