Vintage black and white drawing of a merchant sailing ship at full sail. The text accompanying this sailing ship drawing explained that it was a full-rigged ship with her studding-sail or stu’nsail in the front – which indicates she is a merchant ship rather than a man-of-war. War ships were set to put the stu’nsail at the side of the ship.
