You don't faze me with those -- I've read Patrick O'Brian, too!
All of them, and at least twice. Couldn't define any of the boats, though. I'm at Maturin's level of sea-knowledge!
I'm not an expert , but I would have thought that most boats that usually sailed in a bay would have a sail of some sort? Boats which transported people from a large ship to the shore may be oars only though.
