Example: Columbus was aboard La Gallega, the largest of the three vessels. Originally named for Galicia, the town in which she was built, she was known to her sailors as "Marigalante," literally "dirty Mary." Columbus rechristened her Santa María. The others were also known by nicknames: Santa Clara, was known as Niña ("little girl") a play on the name of her owner, Juan Niño; Pinta means "painted one."
Columbus' ships the Nina, Pinta and the Santa Maria were originally called
Santa Clara, Pinta and Marigalante
Santa María was a "nao," slightly larger and more round-bellied than the two caravels, Columbus described her as "very heavy and not suitable for the business of discovery." Santa María sank on Christmas eve near Cap Haïtien, Haiti, the first of nine ships that would sink during Columbus's explorations (four at La Isabela, 1495; two in Panama, 1503; two in Jamaica, 1504).
Santa Maria was rounder and larger than the other ships. She sank on Christmas Eve near Hati.
Although most expeditions expected to make port within two weeks, Columbus's three ships carried provisions for an entire year. Records of the 1498 voyage of the Niña listed stores of wheat, flour, wine, sea biscuit, olive oil, garbanzos, cheese, salt pork, vinegar, fatback, sardines, and raisins. Cooking was done on deck in large copper kettles over a fire in a sandbox kindled with vineshoots and fed with olivewood.
