SNEKKAR Viking by Lorn6 SNEKKAR Viking by Lorn6
 . . . (Translation below)

SNEKKAR Viking - LANGSKIP (Long Serpent) fin du IXe s.

Bateau d’agrément puis funéraire de la reine scandinave AASA, découvert en Norvège près d'Oseberg (Vestfold) en 1903, parfaitement protégé sous un tumuli de terre glaise et de galets, il sera exhumé en 1904. La coque en chêne mesure 21,50 m de longueur pour une largeur de 5,25 m et un tirant d'eau de 1,10 m. Très stable grâce à sa quille, elle permet au bateau de naviguer en droiture. Elle peut deplacer 23 tonnes et est construite à clins. Les bordés se chevauchant comme des tuiles pour résister souplement aux vagues, ont leurs jointures bourrées de corde pour les rendre imperméables et sont rivés aux membrures par des taquets de bois. La proue s'élève à près de 5 m au dessus du pont en pin. Le gouvernail latéral mesure plus de 3 m de long; il est fixé à tribord sur un bloc conique et soutenu par une large sangle de cuir, il se manœuvre aisément grâce à une barre horizontale. Le mât massif, en pin, est situé au milieu de la coque et s'élève à une vingtaine de mètres au dessus du pont. Amovible comme le gouvernail, il porte une voile d'environ 100 m², tissée en double epaisseur de laine brute ou en lin et souvent rayée de rouge ou de bleu. En cas de vent contraire, de calme plat et aussi pour livrer combat, ces bateaux sont propulsés uniquement à la rame. Assis sur des coffres renfermant leurs objets personnels, les hommes rament à deux par aviron longs de 5 m, qui sont passés dans des sabords de nage.
Ces bateaux se nomment DRAKKAR uniquement quand la proue est ornée d'une tête de dragon (Draken).
Drakkar est le pluriel de Drekki.

Funerary boat of the Scandinavian queen Aasa, discovered by a farmer in Norway, close of Oseberg (Vestfold) in 1903, it will be exhumed in 1904. Resting on a blue clay ground, it was perfectly protected under a tumuli of loam and stones. The hull in oak measures 21.50 m length for a width of 5.25 m and a draught of 1.10 m. Very stable thanks to its keel, it makes possible the boat to sail in still waters of fjords, not on sea. It can move 23 tons and is built with clincher work, hull planks overlapping like tiles to resist the waves , have their joints fully filled with cord to make them impermeable and are fixed to the frames with wood blocks. The prow rises at nearly 5 m to the top of the deck in pine. The side rudder measures more than 3 m length; it is fixed at starboard on a conical block and supported by a broad leather strap, it is easily operated thanks to a horizontal bar. The massive mast, in pine, is located at the middle of the hull and is twenty meters high. Removable like the rudder, it carries a sail of approximately 100 m², woven in double thickness of raw wool or flax and often striped of red or blue. In the event of head wind, of no wind and also to fight, these boats are propelled only by the oars. Sat on trunks containing their personal objects, the men row with two by oar, 5 m long.
These boats are named DRAKKAR only when the prow is decorated with a head of a Dragon (Draken).
Drakkar is the plural of Drekki
