Only know of two 6 masted vessels One was an  6 Masted American Schooner ( I think her name was Wyoming)
The other was Brunei's Ship the Great Eastern...  Remembering the tail of the Lady Passanger who ask a member of the crew how the masts were named on a 6 masted ship.. When he answered they were named for the days of the week ---the fore mast being Monday  and the last mast being Saturday... She said but surely the first day of the week is sunday...  so the Foremast should properly be named Sunday not Monday ... The old AB tugged his fore lock in respect and said Madam there is no such thing as a Sunday at sea And thats as true today as it was then  :(( Its only another working day {:-{
