This is a schooner, by the way. It’s also a good size for the one I had in mind for Thunderhead too.
So imagine that with a little gangly cabin boy sitting at the top and a proud pirate captain shouting orders to her rowdy crew
I’m pretty sure that’s not a schooner. Tall ship yes, but that’s a brigantine
Okay I sincerely appreciate your input but I googled “schooner” and picked an appropriate image as reference for a boat in my Frozen fanfiction (yes the disney movie) and now it’s getting notes because a naval blog searched the word “schooner” and reblogged this post so this was never meant to get notes
Understandable, but us sailboat dorks get picky about rigging names :p
Ah, that’s totally okay. I’ve not been very educated on ships before, so forays into the architecture of said ships is an entirely new frontier for me @_@
And I’ll be sure to look closer next time :P
Not sure if ships are my area of expertise regardless but a backwards search of that image indicates she’s the Regina Marisa and is indeed a topsail schooner.
God bless you Jad you saved my skin
Oh well! What an exercise
Topsail schooners have fore and aft sails, the older ones with gaff rigged, newer schooners often carry Bermuda sails. this ship has square sails. It has three masts with one fore and aft sail at the stern. I was wrong about the rig before it’s not a brigantine either. It’s called a fully rigged ship, or ship rigged.
Fun fact about this particular ship. It is the HMS Bounty, a replica of the original Bounty, used to film the 1960 film “Mutiny on the Bounty” with Marlon Brando. I watched it undergo a total re-fit and restoration in my hometown of Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Unfortunately, the Bounty’s captain decided to sail the ship in October 2012 during Hurricane Sandy and she sunk to the bottom, resulting in the death of the captain and one of the crew. A sad ending for a really majestic ship.
