I once was a student of Latin and we translated many of the chapters of "The 
Voyage of St. Brendan".  If you look into this story near the beginning, you 
will read a description of how they created a hide-covered ship.  It is 
early to mid- Medieval, and Irish I believe.  The latin, unfortunatly, is 
also Medieval Latin.  Sorry, but I don't remember the exact wording on it.  
Hope this helps.
