"It was the technical sailing term "topmast" which Nancy was referring to."

Absolutely. But to be fair, the diagram in the link is far too complicated insofar as representing the Sea Bear's mast is concerned. In Sea Bear's case, the mast is a single spar all the way from the keel to the truck, and the 'topmast' is simply that part of it above the spreaders (crosstrees), to which an observer could climb and then stand or sit on, giving a better view than that available from the deck.
