Description

Model. The boats used in the herring fisheries from Trondheim northwards in Nordland displayed the characteristics of the Viking vesels from which they were developed. They were clincher-built of fir. The larger boats, represented by the model, were some 33 feet in length and provided a small cabin aft. The rowing boat also illustrated is typical of the craft used in the northern coastal regions of Norway for inshore fishing and communication between the numerous islands and fjords.
