(Most ships, of course, are not ships.  To be a ship in the strictest sense of the word, she must have at least three masts, each flying at least three sails - course, topsail and topgallant (hence the expression, The whole nine yards.) She must also have a bowsprit.  The MS "Queen Elizabeth" would be interested to learn she is not a ship.)
