Acording to Trove Australia:

The full-rigged ship ABERFOYLE was built for Gavin Cowper of Glasgow by McMillan's, Dumbarton in 1885. It was registered at 1,661 tons gross (1597 net) and measured 259 ft in length with a beam of 38 ft. It was the owner's only vessel. ABERFOYLE was sold to new owners in 1892 and again in 1898. It was recorded as still trading in 1908 but disappearred from the records shortly after this date.

But I believe there is a very often reproduced picture of her wrecked as Nowegian HANSY. https://www.penleehouse.org.uk/colle...EZPH:1992.1543

Stein, thanks for the information and links..

The story about the wreck of the Hansy is interesting..

There appears to be 8 men working on the spar/sail would that be normal while the ship is in port?

Yes. They seem to be unbending it, maybe so as to change it for another. They usually had two sets, used according to the rigour expected of a passage. It was important to save the best for a trip round the Horn. But they may also want to paint the yard, or have the sailmaker strengthen the sail somewhere.
