General notes

Correspondence from Danielle Carter, Archives, and Bill Laxon, Library Manager, the New Zealand Maritime Museum Library, Auckland, 27.09.2019:

“A four-masted fore-and-aft rigged schooner. ‘Fore-and-aft’ refers to sails that run parallel to the length of the boat, as opposed to square rigged sails, which are perpendicular to the keel of the boat.”
