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.
Vermin King: I didn't post at the time (fairly angry still), but my June Papercraft meeting was cancelled by the venue without even notifying me. They said they would call the previous participants, but I don't know if I can trust them

sergeantmajormarkoff: I like it very much. Somehow seems like it would make the transition between Arrakis, Barsoom, and the Sahara very nicely.

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.

Vermin King: Is it the Windows updates or the Firefox updates that won't allow me to select where to download pdf's any more?
