The decision was made to compose the ship in a way that showcases all its masts. Selecting a calmer moment at sea meant I could hang all the sails out and capture the feeling of awe that seeing a vessel like this elicits, and it tells the story of an early morning under sail.

A full-rigged ship carrying square sails on each of her three or more masts was a common rig for cargo ships in the 19th century, as the sails could be efficiently configured for trade wind sailing. One of the most famous ships to carry this rig was HMS St. Lawrence, which was built at the Royal Navy Dockyard in Kingston, Ont., in 1814 and had been intended for use during the War of 1812. The largest fully-rigged ship ever built in Canada was W.D. Lawrence; built at Maitland, N.S., in 1874, W.D. Lawrence eclipsed Marco Polo, which had been built in Saint John, N.B., in 1851. Today, the three-masted fully-rigged ship North Star of Herschel Island operates on Canada's West Coast.
