    Re: Massachusetts schooners, 1750s

    There is a book available under "Limited Preview" (sort of like shareware for 
    books) at Google Books that includes many, many sail plans and other useful 
    illustrations. It's "The Global Schooner: Origins, Development, Design & 
    Construction 1695-1845" by Karl Heinz Marquardt, Published by Naval Institute 
    Press, 2003, ISBN 1591143284, 9781591143284.
    
    Here's the Google link:

    Have a look at the sail plan of the "Carleston" (1776) on page 33, in particular.
    
    As I noted previously, Chapelle's book is really rather old. There's been a 
    lot of scholarship since, and it appears to me that Marquardt's book 
    supercedes Chapelle's. Oh, and Cook's schooner, originally the "Sally" of 
    Marblehead, gets a couple of paragraphs (but no plans that I could find). 
    Marquardt is a professional model ship builder, by the way.

    PS: I just checked amazon. This book is not subject to "library pricing." It's available for $30-$35
