What would you call this type of rig?

Curious what this rig would be called. My guess is a top masted cutter or gaff.

Topsail gaff-rigged cutter?
It needs a mizzen mast to be a topsail schooner.
I'm guessing here.

The article I read on her called her a sloop. Just didn't seem like the right definition to me. I am part of a team working on saving her from being sunk as a dive attraction.

I do think historically that 'sloop' didn't always mean a strictly fore and aft rig.. and 'sloop of war' applied to 3 masters, so it's possible that this type of rig may have been referred to as a sloop at one time.

Today's definition is different, of course.

Mast looks too far forward to me ... sloop.

One of the ships favored by Chesapeake Bay merchants in the 17th and 18th century was the sloop. Specifically, the Bermuda sloop.

Re: What would you call this type of rig?

A schooner has two or more masts, rigged fore and aft, with the main or rear mast being equal to or taller than the fore mast(s).
