Reliance vs Flying Cloud

Claas Van Der Linde sent us this drawing from the May 1920 Rudder Magazine comparing the size of RELIANCE to the Clipper Ship Flying Cloud. As you can see dainty RELIANCE stood taller!! Flying Cloud was built to round Cape Horn, though, and RELIANCE was only built for fair summer days off Sandy Hook.
