    Hardy times

    Nice looking vessel. Imagine the moral fiber of the individuals who origionally crewed those ships. Hardy!. Not to mention good navigators.

    It's no wonder they pillaged and plundered....they were Fe*K'n freezing!

    They're recreating a voyage that until now, was only speculated upon. The equipment, the technology, the social obstacles involved with coming to Ireland by this means. And if they do it well and conclusivley prove that it can be done, it lends weight to the historical evidence suggesting Columbus / Amerigo were not among the first people to cross the atlantic. Hence a re-writing of history.
    here we go again the ship is leaving dublin next sunday @ 1200 noon

    My girlfriend asked me a good question about this last week. Why are we recreating the raids on our monasteries & ports that cost so many lives and so much gold and other riches.

    Is there a support vessel with this boat?
    The army grey blankets look familiar in the photo section.
