The auxilliary must here be the sails. But that does not seem to have been a great success, because as far as my knowledge goes, nothing similar with the intention of educating seamen was ever built. Brostrøm did not like the words training ship or schoolship, as it was the company's intention to give the boys a serious practical education with an exam at the end, and if satisfactory marks were obtained, declare them fully qualified seamen. (At what rank my sources do not say.) They therefore called the ship a "elevfartyg", that is "student-vessel." This was not repeated elsewhere either.
