For what it's worth. I was down at the Texas A&M marine archeology conservation lab last Fri. looking at the recovered items from HEROINE. While there is still paint on the section of guard that they salvaged (black rails and rub rail, red deck) there was no indication of paint on any of the wheel parts or shafts, even those that had remained buried along the port side. They did not find any traces of paint on the hull either. (Fascinating visit- they were working not only on HEROINE, but on artifacts from La Salle's ship LA BELLE and the CSS ALABAMA.)
