The original Sea Stallion, called Skuldelev 2, was built by Vikings in 1042 near Dublin, Ireland. “Sea Stallion from Glendalough” is a reconstruction of this ship, excavated as a wreck from the bottom of the Roskilde Fjord in 1962. Painstakingly built by the Roskilde Museum in Denmark from original lines reconstructed from actual intentionally scuttled ships in Roskilde harbor, the 98 foot replica ship is the largest of five reconstructed by the Museum. The ship is currently completing the second leg of a journey begun last summer from Roskilde, Denmark to Dublin, Ireland. For the rest of the story CLICK HERE.

Victory Chimes

Victory Chimes (catalog #2000) is a three-masted, gaff-rigged Chesapeake Ram schooner, home-ported in Rockland, Maine. Built in 1900 in Bethel, Delaware as Edwin And Maud, Victory Chimes' dimensions are: length 127.5 feet, breadth 23.8 feet and depth 8.6 feet; 208 tons gross, 178 tons net. Just as when Victory Chimes was built, the schooner does not carry an engine. Maneuvering assistance is provided by a nineteen foot wooden yawlboat which pushes against the stern. Victory Chimes not only exemplifies the nineteenth and early twentieth century development of large American wooden schooners intended primarily, though not exclusively, for the coasting trade on both east and west coasts, but she is the only surviving example of the "Chesapeake ram" type and one of only three surviving examples of a three masted schooner in the United States. A member of the Maine Windjammer Fleet, transporting 40 guests each week during the summer months to experience the wind and the sea.
