If I could find Charley Nobel and get the keys to the sea chest, I believe the answer is in there...

I don't believe the Gaff is required to be classified as a Schooner,
but deffinetly the foremast needs to be shorter than the mizzen to be a Schooner.

I would have a problem shorthanded sailing. Do all of the sails have furlers? Than again, if money is no object, I could hire a crew to take me out sailing.

Edit:Too Slow.

A gaff is not required to be a schooner. The aft mast ( main ) is raked futher aft on that lovely boat, making it look slitly smaller. It's a schooner for pratical purposes.
