Description:
Entering Portsmouth harbour. 11-07-2008

THE SEA STALLION FROM GLENDALOUGH
Estimated maximum speed: 15-20 knots
Cost of construction: 10m Danish Krone (912,000)
First launched: 4th Sept 2004
1. The crew of 65 men and women slept on the open deck, as the Vikings did, and take turn keeping watch
2. Satellite navigation equipment will make sure the ship stays on course. Vikings had to rely on the position of the sun and stars, the colour and movement of the sea and wind direction
3. Oak planks were cut radially for maximum strength, overlapped and nailed together. Axes and other tools used to make the planks were replicas of those used by the Vikings
4. The sail, mast, rigging and rudder on the original were missing so these have been copied from other finds
5. Shields, vital in battle, were tied over the oarports when the ship was in port
