What's the name for a "small working boat" beginning with 'L'?

Asked by kristianbrodie (153points) August 9th, 2008 from iPhone

I’m stuck on the crossword and I’m one clue away from completion. Unfortunately I have no nautical knowledge at all – can anyone help? Six letters, L_g_e_.

Are you sure all the intersecting clues are correct? Saturday crosswords are the hardest, much harder than Sunday IMO.

Six-letter L boats = launch, lander.

A lugger is a type of small sailing vessel setting lugsails on two or more masts and perhaps lug topsails.

Boom. Think that’s it then.
