The Challenge

This is the fourth in a series of challenges to do with the type and make of a Boat or Ship…
This challenge will be for the FULLY RIGGED / BRIG / SHIP OF THE LINE / CLIPPER type ship.…
This challenge is a quick one to see who can come up with the best image
of a Fully Rigged Type Boat or Ship…
This challenge will also accept a Brig and a Ship of the Line.
Fully Rigged…Three or more masts, with each having a complete set of square sails.
In other words.all masts having Cross Yardarms that support sails. Click Here
