Building a Viking Ship in Maine
Thursday, June 14, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM (EDT)
Boatshop Mug-Up Lecture: Building a Viking Ship in Maine, Paul Cunningham
In 1996, professional photographer Paul Cunningham recorded the building of a Viking knar later christened Snorri. Throughout the seven month process, Cunningham photo-documented the building process and he has recently compiled the photos into a wonderful little photo book that documents the ingenuity, skill and patience of a small band of boatbuilders who created a sea-worthy vessel not seen in a thousand years.
