A technical name for the Viking ship would be 'drakkar' if it was a war ship 
or 'knarr' if it was a merchant's ship. Drakkars seem to be what most people 
are talking about then they want Viking ships.

'Drakkar' is used in the Armory as recently at 2000. I found no occurances of 
the phrase 'viking ship'. So this would be: Azure, a drakkar sailed
argent, at my best guess.
