Coneys chartered the Megan Jaye, a 43-ft sloop based in Newport, Rhode Island, and skippered by Hank Halsted.
Franchard lost no time in towing the sloop back to the boat-house.
There is the cutter rig, yawl rig, sloop rig, and the ketch rig.

A party of twenty-five English set out from Casco in a sloop and two boats, sailed along the bay, and entered the river.
O'Sullivan Og pointed to the sloop, pointed to his house, grinned.

"small fore and aft rigged vessel with one mast, generally carrying a jib, fore-stay sail, mainsail, and gaff-topsail," 1620s, from Dutch sloep "a sloop;" probably from French chaloupe, from Old French chalupe "small, sloop-rigged vessel," which is perhaps related to English shallop [OED]. But according to Barnhart and Watkins the Dutch word might simply be from Middle Dutch slupen "to glide," from PIE *sleubh- (see sleeve). In old military use, a small ship of war carrying guns on the upper deck only (1670s).
