That is actually a very sleek and beautiful vessel. A mixture of power and sail. Very slinky hull design and even back in that era I'll bet she could do 18 knots standing on her head. The man who designed this little ship was a
nautical architect that knew his job well. She almost looks like she was designed and built in the 1930's or 1940's rather than 1889. She's a bit of an advanced design for the 1880's, if you ask me. Damned good looking ship.
