    This could be the case when the wrong sail is shown.

    If you could, you should show him his own Fore Sail.
    He (like any other commander) will not discard it by seeing his Fore sail.
    At the same time (seeing it and not discarding it), he will tell you that he calls it a "randa" because it is a trapezoidal sail (whether narrow or wide) set on three sides: boom, mast and gaff.

    While you're at it, get a photo of his Main Sail (just the sail) and repeat the investigation with that new sample sail, hahahaha.

    Prof Moriarty, I have spoken with Marco Tibiletti, commander of the schooner OLOFERNE. He confirms that the sample sail is not the fore sail from the OLOFERNE. Another vessel is eliminated from the suspect list. We are now down to 2 of the original vessels, do you wish to concede yet?

    For the moment I take the word "Gaff Sail" at face value, it seems to me to be the most popular for now.

    But of all Doyle's characters, Moriarty doesn't seem like the best I could have chosen.

    Prof Moriarty, You are cunning as you are intelligent. I look forward to the conclusion of this game

    I think I'll have to change the attached image of the sample sail, or put a dozen different ones (but all trapezoidal), hahahaha.

    I have checked the records of the admiralty, I have found the fate of the THOMAS W LAWSON. She was lost November 19 1907 in the Isles of Scilly. In that she carried 4000 sq m of sail and the luff of her sails, except for the spanker, was almost parallel to the leech, our sample could not be her fore sail. She can be eliminated as a suspect

    Yes Holmes, I wrote it to you myself: the first ones concern the second (after the Amerigo Vespucci) training ship of the Italian Navy.

    The sample examined is for example only, consider any trapezoidal shaped sail for your investigations.

    But what a cooked smell in Baker Street!
    AHAHAHAH
