There are not many contemporary evidences on the two caravels, except for the few oblique references that can be found in a resume of Columbus Journal. Nevertheless, two things are pretty sure - both ships belonged to the Pinzon family, and at the very beginning both of them had lateen sails.

Then during the first stop at the Canary Island, the Pinta replaced its lateen sails with square sails. This operation, together with the substitution of the mast, delayed the departure for four weeks. Columbus always referred to Nina and Pinta as the Caravels.
