      I was sure I'd seen the term "crow's nest" used for whalers, many of which were ship rigged.

      I believe the term crows nest applies to
      galleons and rigs prior to the ship rig becoming popular. Once the
      third section was added to the masts they became known as "tops"
      or "fighting tops" in men of war.
