and another Viking boat , a replica Gokstad faering

Amazingly beautiful, these small craft form the backbone of Norways boatbuilding heritage and are apparently still in use today, and not just as museum pieces. from Vikingskip og norske trebater, a sort of online museum of Norse boat evolution pulled together from archaeoligical evidence and recontruction/replicas.
