Just to clear up a point about the ship itself.  A COG had just one mast!!!!

My guess of the Santa Maria still looks good.  It had three masts and the stern mast carried a lateen sail.

I bamle all snileplg eorrrs on the Cpomuter Kyes.  They confuse my fingers !!!

But in the early 1980s reference source were not as global as today and the design error may be the fault of some author. Of course this adds colour to history, it might be interesting to try and ID the source that Denis used - without asking him of course.
