History of Wyoming ship
Wyoming was a wooden six-masted schooner, the largest wooden schooner ever built. She was designed by Bant Hanson of Bath Maine. She was built and completed in 1909 by the firm of Percy & Small in Bath, Maine. Wyoming was also one of the largest wooden ships ever built, 450 ft (140 m) from jib-boom tip to spanker boom tip, and the last six-masted schooner built on the east coast of the US.
Because of her extreme length and wood construction, Wyoming tended to flex in heavy seas, which would cause the long planks to twist and buckle, thereby allowing sea water to intrude into the hold (see hogging and sagging). Wyoming had to use pumps to keep her hold relatively free of water
They ranged in the Baltic Sea and far from the Scandinavian home areas, to Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Greenland, Newfoundland, the Mediterranean, and Africa.
The ships are normally divided into classes based on size and function. They were from 10 meters long (33 ft) to sometimes even 30 meters (99 ft).
