Work on the full-scale reconstruction of Skuldelev 2, the Irish-built longship, is once more under way after a pause during the winter months. The project ‘Thoroughbred on the sea’ has come to a another milestone, in that the seventh strake has been fastened in place and the bottom of the ship finished.

In clinker construction of former days, it was important that the form of the hull was defined by the courses of the individual planks, so that the desired lines were established before the frame timbers were shaped and laid into the shell. (This process may occur at varying tempos, but the planking always comes before the frames.) The time has now come for us to stiffen the bottom of the hull with floor timbers. Several of the forty floor timbers have been laid, and their construction and function make great demands on the material. Strength and lightness are the primary factors in all aspects of the longship's construction, and they influence the shaping of the individual elements.

The floor timbers in Skuldelev 2, like all the other parts of the ship, are made from carefully selected wood. In the original ship, each was made from compass timber which had grown in the curved shape needed at just that place in the hull. In the reconstruction, it is thus important to assure that the wood fibres in each frame run without interruption over the whole length of the piece. In this way, maximum strength can be provided by the smallest possible dimensions.

The floor timbers are flat and wide over the third through seventh strakes, but higher and narrower over the keel. Thus they can flex or give toward their ends, where the hull will move when sailing, but are stiffer over the keel and garboards, contributing to the longitudinal stiffness of the vessel.
