This is an unfortunate situation but seemingly unavoidable.

Generic term for a long narrow Viking warship; major period 600-1.000 A.D., but were used in Scandinavia as late as the first quarter of the 15th century. Also used on the east coast of England.
At least two types: the SNEKKJA and the SKEID. Although considered unsuitable for ocean voyages, the vessels were reported from Iceland and the Mediterranean.
Designed primarily to be rowed, with a square sail used only under favorable wind conditions.
Double-ended; clinker built usually a low, T-shaped keel; quarter rudder; open low freeboard.
Pulled 50-80 oars, possibly with as 4 men per oar; oars worked through oar ports.
Pole mast housed in a step. Sails hoisted by a halyard; held in position by bowlines and a spar.
Length about 44 meters, but one reported as 60 meter.
The size of the vessel was designated by the number of “rooms” or rowing thwarts.
