The Schooner Rig, which is the form of boat generally used for the larger yachts, is also very much used for open boats. As you can see, by referring to Fig. 126, the schooner rig consists of a bowsprit, fore and main mast, with their appropriate sails. Lately freight schooners have appeared with three or more masts. For small boats two adjustable masts and an adjustable bowsprit, as described in the Rough and Ready, are best. The sails may be sprit sails, Fig. 143, balance lug Fig. 127, standing lug, Fig. 128; leg of mutton, Fig. 129, or the sliding gunter, Fig. 139.

In the chapter on how to build the Rough and Ready, the sprit sail is depicted and fully described.
