Viking ships are BIG!
Yesterday, it was finally time to place the front keel into position on the hull framework. We've been working on the plans and pieces for many weeks and knew they were large. But seeing it on paper and in pieces is one thing. Seeing it raised into place on the ship was something else entirely. It dwarfed Peter standing on the ground! The tail section of the keel will be next and then in the coming week we'll finish off the framework for the hull of the ship. The second ship's lower framework is also nearing completion and in a few days we will pull the ship's pieces from the shop and assemble it beside the first.
