For comparison, here’s a modern replica of Columbus’ ship, the Nina. It’s 65’ and probably a little more historically modern than the era of the Storm Bull, but it’s good to see the size ratios — notice the people standing near the main mast, and then imagine a full crew on the Storm Bull of 40+ sailors and men-at-arms. The main differences in the two ships are the lack of a forecastle and the addition of a foremast and a 2nd mizzen mast (the triangular aft sail mast) on the Nina.
