The answer 100% depends on the specific boat
. No way to answer your question without more information. Over the years of sponge fishing
in Tarpon Springs a lot of very different boats were used from sail to power.
So are you referring to this boat
1903 SAROUKOS Builders;1st & or 2nd Generation CUSTOM BUILT TARPON SPRINGS SPONGE BOAT
If so, it appears to already be a gaff rigged sloop.
