They would have been sized to fit in the camera lens. Panavision, probably but theres a variety of widths used.
You know how when you take a photo of a sailing boat you either get a nice close up of the folks in the cockpit, but cant fit the mast in the frame, unless you turn the camera on its side. Well, obviously you cant turn the cinema on its side whenever the Bounty comes into view. So the masts need to be the right ratio to the boat to fit the lens.... And make it look nice!
