Long Ships of the Vikings (These are really big boats. You rarely see them this size - TV, movies, replicas and even art usually opts for much smaller ships that can carry no more than 20 to 30 fighters.

Diagram showing how the mast of a Viking ship is set into the 'keelson' and secured by the 'mast partner' The mast could be removed and stored horizontally, on the upright 'gaffs' and when the ship was sailed, the oar ports were closed to prevent water from leaking in.
