Types not defined by rig[edit]

There are some ship types here that are not defined by rig, such as galleons. I think we should have a {{Cat see also}} for sailing ships by type, where most historic ship types and traditional small ship types would go. There are already Category:Sailing yachts by class, but many boats also lack category. I am not sure about where to draw the line between boats and ships, and there are probably lots of such categories.

Look e.g. at bisquines and luggers. They should perhaps be found under Category:Lug rigged ships (a new sub category of this), but it is confusing to go via "Ships by rig" or Boats by type, when having an image of a ship of known type but unknown rig. There are also lots of lateen rigged boats and ships, where rig is hardly the defining feature.
