Ha-Ha? Funny Title eh? Well, this is about the naming debate. To be specific, the names of the awesome schooner Thomas W Lawson's 7 masts have been a contrversy filled and fun thing to do. I'll list some ideas I found here: www.bruzelius.info and then you can make your own in the comments if you like. I'll voice my opinion of each idea as well.
Orignal Sail PlanEdit
No.1,No.2, No.3,No.4,No.5,No.6 and No.7
Clever, simple, but not nautical at all
Axel Larson, museum ownerEdit
Sane thing except Number 7 is renamed Spanker Mast
Good idea on naming 7th mast Spnaker Mast but still not very nautical.
Fore, Main, Mizzen, Spanker, Jigger, Driver and Pusher
Good idea, but i disagree on the name of mast number 5
Forecastle, Fore, Main, Mizzen, Jigger, Spanker, After
Captain Frank PetersonEdit
Fore, Main, Mizzen, Afterr Mizzen, Jigger, Driver, Spanker
Decent, but the After Mizzen is too much
Peterson's changed view on mast namesEdit
Fore,Main,Mizzen,No.4,No.5,No.6 and Spanker
The 4th 5th and 6th masts need names people!
Captain Arthur Crowley ( 1st captain of the lawson)Edit
Exact same view as Peterson's
Look at my view on Peterson's names
Captain William Holland=== (was quartermaster on the lawson)Edit
Fore, Main, Mizzen,Jigger,Spanker,Driver,Rudder Mast
Pretty good, I like this one a lot!
Douglas Lawson(son ofthe guy the ship was named after!)Edit
Good, the rider mast idea is catchy
Captain Ernest SproulEdit
Good, but not entirley easy to remember
Days of the week
Clever, but annoying and not nautical at all!
The best oneEdit
Actually, there's 2 i really like: Lawson's and Holland's
Fore, Main, Mizzen, Rider, Jigger, Pusher, Spanker
