The Drakkar (Drake or Drek) is the name of these Scandinavian boats. They were used somewhere between the 700 and 1000 A.D.. It is reffered to as the long ship and had an ornament on the bow. The Vikings used this ship as a war ship with a hundred or so warriors wielding swords. The snarling ornament on the bow and the blood red sails cast fear into the hearts of the towns and countries they pillaged.
Very accurate reurection of a boat from the past. These men were very brave sailing these small boats.
