The Same Ship?
« on: November 30, 2018, 07:20:50 pm »
Spinalman, johnjohn and I have already discussed this but thought it might be worth checking other people’s opinions. Are these ships all the same vessel? The masts, lines and form of the two images 1 & 2 certainly appear to match. Photo 3  is perhaps a little doubtful when looking at the ships alongside each other. Is it the lighting on the ship’s side of that makes it look different to the paintwork on the previous two photos? The upper lines/shape of the vessel also seem to be more straight and level but maybe this is an illusion as the rigging fixings to the hull in 1 and 3 do appear to be similar. What do you think?

I tend to think that the ships appearing in photo's 2 and 3 are not the same vessel.
There appear to be some subtle differences, including:-
The general line of the superstructure around the stern of the ship.
The height of the mizzen mast.
The shape of the rudder.
