You are both correct. Some had stepped masts, some had pole masts. To be fair I've more often seen reference to pole masts than stepped. It would be a fairly easy conversion to do though with some brass rod.

It should work very well with Warlord's "Black Sails" ships – although badged as 1/700 the scale gets a bit stretched with frigates and smaller ships so this ought to fit in just fine

I'm pleased to share what is going to be our next Age of Sail 1:600 scale ship model, an 18th Century polacre (also known as polacca). These ships were kind of an evolution from xebecs, primarily designed to outperform these. Polacres most typically displayed a lateen sail on the foremast while full rigging on main and mizzen masts.

Preview

Our polacre model is to have the high quality resin hull you can see in these pictures, complemented with white-metal masts and sails (pictures just show the 3Dprinted masters of these, that are going to be brought to the foundry soon).
