The longship is such a defining image for the Norse culture, and he has seen so few ships in local reenactments, that he took it upon himself to build one. As my Lord and I do not have Norse personas ourselves, we would like to find a new home for our ship.
The ship has been created to produce a period image and silhouette, while still being highly durable, easy to set up, and easy to break down and store. Nearly all of the sewing is by hand and all of the wood work, knot work and sewing was done by Mr. Crowe.
The ship stands 12 ft. tall and can be as long or wide as you want it to be. It needs a minimum 12ft width and 12ft length. It breaks down into a very small space: The mast and yard arm need 12ft x 1ft x 6in. The figure head needs 2in x 4ft x 7.5ft, the bow works need about 4ft x 8ft, but are somewhat flexible, and are easily hung on a wall or ceiling. Various ropes and angles take up about 2ft x 2ft x 1 ft.
