Eel Drifters: Building a Traditional Fishing Boat from the Danish Island of Fejo

Paperback
In the autumn of 2010, the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde launched a newly built eel-drifter (aledrivkvase), a type of fishing boat traditionally used on the waters between Zealand, Lolland and Falster. Inspired by similar North-German fishing boats, the so-called Zeesboote, the eel-drifter was designed by boatbuilders on the island of Fejo, north of Lolland.
