Default Anyone know the name of this schooner?

Marty,

Charlie Morgan as usual has it correct, it is the America.


Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, and a blind hog finds an
acorn once in a while.

You can tell by
the relative height of the masts.


Tell what? That it's a schooner? Yep

A better giveaway is the rake of the masts and the arrangement of the
headsails, which is somewhat different from the original 'America' but
also noticeably different from most other schooners.

The Californian, at least in pictures I have seen, always has at least
one yard crossed on her foremast.
