From "The Norsemen" by H.A. Guerber
The Giants' Ship
A North Frisian tradition relates that the giants possessed a colossal ship,
called Mannigfual, which constantly cruised about in the Atlantic Ocean.
Such was the size of this vessel that the captain was said to patrol the
deck on horseback, while the rigging was so extensive and the masts so high
that the sailors who went up as youths came down as gray-haired men, having
rested and refreshed themselves in rooms fashioned and provisioned for that
purpose in the hugh blocks and pulleys.
A little bit of lore that may possibly have conributed to UOTNS?????
