Viking Ship. By Peter. How Do Vikings travel So Safely?. They have good strong longboats that can carry many men They have sturdy sails that doesn’t rip often. What makes long boats so safe. Vikings were excellent shipbuilders so the boat was strong The boat had a keel
A keel is the long bottom part of a ship that allows the ship to be tall and wide and not sink. The keel makes the ship steady in water and not flip over by a small wave
If a ship has a short mast the weight will decrease so the base wont break through in serious conditions.
The small sail wont get affected by too much wind on very windy days at sea, and can wobble without taking in any water
1 Vikings make keel first usually out of oak.
2 They make the sides using long planks(strakes)
3Inner ribs and cross beams are added for strength
4Oar holes are cut out, rudder is attached to the back and a large block is cut out to hold the mast steady
Sails are attached and are coated with animal fat for water proof.
