She carried square sails on both masts, but had a small trysail[?] mast (also called a snowmast) stepped immediately abaft the mainmast from which a trysail with a boom was set, with the luff of the trysail hooped to it. At times the trysail mast was replaced by a horse on the mainmast, to which the luff of the trysail was attached by rings.
