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.

Toman: yes. though the kids need to be reminded to put them away when they are done. I've come home from work and they are all watching tv while the bikes are sitting in the front lawn. kids

Toman: the bikes now go in the fenced back yard now. after nine years never had an issue with bikes, we did end up with an extra scooter last summer that no one could identify. I think because it was kind of a piece of junk

cowboyleland: Apparently bike theft is rife. Covid makes people want to bike instead of bus so it is a sellers market in the bike world. :/
