Srodbro Posted October 5, 2021 Share #1 Posted October 5, 2021 (edited) I’m preparing to dive into builds of Kate Cory and Charles W Morgan. I have read that Kate Cory started life as a schooner, then was re-rigged with square sails on the formast, becoming a brig(antine). The Morgan started life as a three masted square rigged ship, then changed the Mizzen mast to fore-and-aft rigging, becoming a bark. Both whalers, then, having morphed into vessels with fore-and-aft rigged aftermost mast. My landlubber model shipbuilder question: Is this arrangement inherently advantageous for a whaler? Why?
