Hi there:

Rover seat is as always in Icelandic named: Þófta kvk.

The space (rúm) inside the boat (of 6 oars  that is 3x2 ) .

The subspaces are named like: Miðskipsrúm with miðskipsþóftu and 2 rovers at starboard and at larboard, Frammírúm in the stern, with no rovers or seat.

thwarts are þvert that is a across.

Those boards rare surely side coverings but lying bent across.

The boards are of two principal breadths those going around two rooms have width ca. to times the breadth of those lying at there sides.

the broader plank type went lost.

Thanks Uoden ON-Amateur.

Bera á hann (á means sometimes yfir) so Bera yfir út that is His menn waded out to him with the goods that he charged om board. The boat was lying in the sea apparently.
