Snow

There are currently 155 purpose built and 3 converted Snows listed in Threedecks. Please use the ship search to see them all.


The sails and rigging on the main-mast and fore-mast of a snow, are exactly similar to those on the same masts in a ship only that there is a final mast behind the main-mast, of the former, which carries a sail nearly resembling the mizen of a ship The foot of this mast is fixed in a block of wood on the quarter-deck abaft the main-mast; and the head of it is attached to the after-part of the main-top. The sail, which is called the try sail, is extended from its mast towards the stern of the vessel.
