    Default Game of Throne Prequel - new boat on set - Gaeta, Italy - any ideas who built it?

    See attached pictures -- looks like it's due a wooden mast and simple square rig.
    Interested to find out where it may have been built, any ideas?

    Mark Edwards perhaps in the UK, as he does boats for the likes of Vikings, I believe?Screenshot_20190715-184917.jpg

    It seems to be doing a few knots. What is making it go?

    The towrope attached at its bow may be a clue...

    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    Is that a beer cooler in the bow?

    I should look closer. They should learn to row. It looks like a pig. The Vikings did much better.

    It is a bit of a Knarre brjóst, but fine enough at the waterline.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
