The bowsprit attached to the jib boom on the bow is rigged to hold three triangular foresails in front of the foremast. Thick lines, run through pulleys and block and tackle, allow quick adjustments to the sails and yards. The foredeck allows a clear view of the ship's figurehead -- a huge, three-headed viper sinuously coiled around a shark tooth-tipped spear. You also see a coil of rope.
