Hi, Dave. Glad to get the river boat buzzing in your fruitful brain again. I wouldn't obsess about the walkways along the sides of the cabin. Just make the top flat and the PCs can clamber over the top. I you want, you could make a platform at the stern for a couple of minis. Another thing to consider would be a lateen or triangular sail. The yard at the top could be part of the sail piece and be a simple triangular tube that you would score, fold over and glue.
Attached is a Spanish galera with Lateen sails.

Polin' up the river in a three hand boat, Too deep to carry, too shallow to float. Too deep to carry, too shallow to float. If it doesn't lift your spirits, well it leaves you numb. Best cure for the river is a bottle of rum, Best cure for the river is a bottle of rum.
Those are both beautiful. You're thinking about another boat aren't you, Dave? Yes you are. Heaven knows there is a need for them. FDG's cog is a great start, but a Caravel with Lateen sails would be amazing. And with a little imagination, it could have Planescape airship build options as well.

Are you thinking ship or boat? Your original image and post were about a boat but some of the later images were of ships. Sometimes smaller is better where adventuring groups are concerned. It seems to me that your basic hull shape and layout would not be hard to re-skin and use as a Mediterranean trader, Arabian dhow, or small oriental junk. It wouldn't make a bad fishing boat, either.
Face piles of trials with smiles, it riles them to believe that you perceive the webs they weave.

Parduz: Let me "shout" here that i'm not ignoring the minis database cataloguing job, but got a bit sidetracked by real life and the Legions of Steel 2ed beta testing. I also thought to reply to a couple of PMs but did'nt hit the "Send" button. Anyway, i'll do it!

mproteau (Paper Realms): Oh my good lord. Well, I was working on a brilliant year-in-review post outlining all the things I managed to pull off, and mistakenly clicked the "x" button on the browser window. Please take a moment to close your eyes and imagine an amazing post.
