To provide a gathering place where maritime history comes alive through direct experience and our small craft heritage is enjoyed, preserved, and passed along to future generations. On the shore of the Roskilde Fjord, about a half-hour train ride from Copenhagen, I spoke with Birger, the chief boatwright and one of the founders of the museum, and his current apprentice, Malthe, about their organization. In addition to preserving and documenting these historic craft, and constructing a museum building to house the remains, the museum also undertook the development of a skills preservation program, embarking on the construction of replicas of the recovered historic craft. In addition to displaying the recovered Viking boats, the center trains apprentices like Malthe in wooden boat building skills, which are rapidly being lost in Denmark as they are in the U.S.
Preserving the unique local maritime culture and skills and craft, passing the knowledge down, and enjoying the experience of working with wood and traveling by water under natural power, s ounds a lot like CWB.

The museum was started when the remains of several Viking ships were identified and recovered from the fjord’s bottom in 1962. In the process, they had to re-create some of the special tools and skills that make the Viking ships unique; in doing so they have acted to preserve their ancient Danish heritage. They also run an archaeological laboratory that documents and researches Viking culture and technologies.

I have the book at the office, so if tomorrow I remember to look for it, I'll tell you the title. On a recent trip to visit my daughter in Denmark, I was thrilled to find the Vikingeskibsmuseet (Viking Ships Museum) in Roskilde, Denmark. The replica boats take visitors to the museum on excursions to provide the experience of rowing an authentic ancient craft. Anyway I found a small 4 metre one that was rotten as hell and had chickens living in it, and basically built a new one as an exact replica.
These counter-sterned Danish boats look very good with a proper rig and sail remarkably well. Their design and heavy construction lends itself to building a proper little blue water sailing ship.
