This canoe is an interesting development of our Fisher Prospector canoe for clients who want to turn up to the local open canoe meet in threatening manner ready to do a bit of pillaging etc!
As far as I know, the Vikings did not have small canoe like boats and so, unlike the original longboats, which had fairly slack bilges, she has the typical high stability Prospector mid section with tumblehome in the topsides and 6 planks per side.
