It would have to be a standard blue. Light blue (Blue Celeste) is not a 
registerable tincture in the SCA

Brown is also not a tincture that is allowed except in the case of 'proper' 
which is discouraged, but not disallowed. I would suggest gold/yellow (Or) 
as a close approximation

I have not conflict checked this. The blazon would be "Azure, a viking long 
boat Or, sailed argent"

I am not very good at names, so have sent this to the Ansteorran heralds
