A Question About Flynn's THE MASTER OF BALLANTRAE:

Recommended Posts

is the so-called Spanish galleon really a galleon? IIRC galleons stopped being made in the 17th century, and were replaced by frigates, which is what that ship looks like to me.

I suspect that ship is called a galleon simply because galleon sounds more pirate-ish.

You're correct.   At least the pirates are not wearing bow ties.
