So when people in Fargo get bored there's no telling what they might do. For instance constructing a 74 foot long replica Viking ship and sailing it to Norway.
Apparently he started it in his garage and then moved construction to an abandoned potato factory outside of town. To get the ship out of the potato warehouse they demolished the back of the building and trucked it overland 300 miles to Duluth.
Here's Dan my dear friend and helpful tour guide.
The ships rigging.
Oar Holes.
Keel layout.
They sailed it across the great lakes and then through the Erie canal .
Then Down the Hudson to New York and across the Atlantic to Norway.
This is what happens when hobbies run amok. : )
