Viking ship returning home.


I try to make my new designs so that they can be rigged to look like this runestone picture. I feel there is a lot of truth in this picture.

The boom shown here is longer than the boom found with the Oseberg. This boom looks like it is longer than the Viking ship. Where as on the Oseberg the boom is about 75% of the length of the ship.

On the Viking Navy designs I used the booms the size of the booms found with the Oseberg. Thus the Viking Navy sails are not as wide as the sails shown on this picture.
