Quick Reference

One of the oldest types of New England fishing and trading vessels. Built with a Baltic form of hull having a pointed stern similar to the bow, over which a false stern was carried out beyond the rudder like a square counter, it resembled the North Sea and Danish pink of the early 18th century, from which it was named. These small craft, 15–21 metres (50–70 ft) in length, were generally schooner rigged with or without a staysail or jib.
