The state ferry Tustumena passes under the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge on June 3, 1969. The Tustumena was built in Wisconsin in 1964 by Christy Corp. It was renovated during the winter of 1969 by Bethlehem Steel Corp in San Francisco, where a 56-foot-long mid-ship section was added, making the ship's length 296 feet. Stabilizer fins and a bow thruster also were added.
