Quick Reference

The English name, probably given in jest, to a small Portuguese vessel used for inshore and estuary fishing. It had a sharp and very high curved bow, the curve being carried round inboard at the top. Single masted, they spread a very large lateen sail which extended the whole length of the vessel, making it remarkably weatherly.
