You might also look up information from old National Geographics on the 
Voyage of the Brendan, a Thory Hierdahl (sp?) like recreation of the voyage 
of St Brendan from Ireland to the New World.  It is an early period ship, but 
such leather curraghs were used up until modern times, that's how they found 
out how to build it.
