How to use "Longboat" in context?

The term "longboat" is derived from the phrase "longboatman" - an individual who owns orcrews a longboat. Longboats were typically 18-20 feet long and were builtfor travel up and down large rivers. Their wide decks and ability to carry a large crew gave them a significant advantage over other vessels on the river. The usefulness of longboats was restricted only by the availability of large rivers and the strength of the crew. Today, longboats are only occasionally seen on the waterways, but their distinctive shape and design is still influential in modern boatbuilding.
