SCHOONER-Today most schooners are charter ships, school ships, or historical replicas. A schooner has two or more masts with the forward being shorter or the same height as the rear masts. Most of these schooners are gaff rigged. As trade increased they needed larger hulls so more masts were added. Three masted "terns" were a favourite rig of Canada's Maritime Provinces.
