This vessel preservation work included a topside paint job for the 188-car, 2000-passenger Spokane and the 87-car/983-passenger Evergreen State. The topside is the superstructure of the vessel (as opposed to the hull). We removed old paint and repainted most of the topside of the vessels.
New paint jobs preserve the structure of vessels by protecting them from the corroding effects of marine elements.
