3 Masted Napkin Ship

Come cheer up, my lads! 'tis to glory we steer,
To add something more to this wonderful year;
To honour we call you, not press you like slaves,
For who are so free as the sons of the waves?

With the help of THIS site, I made this really funky 3 masted napkin ship to adore our plates on Thanksgiving day. Pretty fun, huh?  To make my napkin stay folded (which, if you use enough starch it will do it on it's on, but I didn't want to starch it) I used a paper clip on the inner fold:
See that little guy?

While making this I did a little research. You see, I wanted to figure out if I was going to call this a "Ship".....or was there a fancier name? I don't know anything about sea-faring vessels. I came across a site that gave me this image:
I'd say it's a ship. The only things I am missing is a bowsprit and the yards across the masts. Kinda hard with napkins. :-) Here's a another image of my Ship getting ready to set sail for messy mouths (?!?!):
Oooo, you can also see my Hay Centerpiece!!
