Background

Two additional, similar sets of hull remains were not as well preserved but are believed to be of similar size and construction. Conservation was attempted on all remains but was largely unsuccessful. The timbers are now stored in the Hull and East Riding Museum.

Hull Construction

The seams were caulked with an elaborate system of moss held in place by battens located inside the seams. Bottom seams were stabilized by means of rods held in place by cleats. 1
