This looks like an interesting little ship, but I have to ask one thing.  If the helmsman is up on the platform and is behind the sail, how can he see to steer?

At half height of the mast there is a block with a line that collects the central part of the sail and pulls it up, allowing the pilot to see below it.
The block and that maneuver are called in Portuguese espiadoiro, which means spy post
