The inner skeleton of the Ladby Ship is being constructed

31. March 2014 | The inner skeleton of the Ladby Ship is being constructed

The sixth row of hull planks, out of eight, is now being mounted and adjusted on the Ladby Ship reconstruction. The next step is to create the inner skeleton, so to speak. The stringers, the beams, and the 32 knees will be added to the hull before the next row of planks are mounted. The eighth row of planks will be of ash wood, which is already being selected. Both fore and aft, extra planking will be added.

In the summer of 2013, the dragon head for the ship was carved, and its mane of iron curls is in place. All it needs now is a coat of paint.
