She sank on the Red River in 1838. I've posted about her several times. The guards (gunwale) and railing were black, the deck was red. None of her superstructure survived. The main deck railing was about 12 inches tall, just enough to keep stuff from rolling overboard, or to trip over. The section recovered was from aft the wheels, probably there were no railings forward.
