FLORENCE HOLIDAY CINGJING Photo Gallery
She was a sturdy craft, built of solid teak and displacing 65 tons. The teak build gave the name to Tectona – the botanical name for teak being tectona grandis. She wore a complicated rig of six sails, flying 2,000 square feet of canvas off two masts and a long bowsprit when fully rigged. Technically, the style of rig was that of a gaff ketch. The hull was paint – dark blue with a white topping – and the decks, hatches and deck furniture were all oiled or varnished teak.
