Row, Row, Row Your Boat

When compared to the galleon, merchant ship, sloop or even the dhow, the ship's boat might seem pretty insignificant. Given that it's required for moving between vessels and making landings on shore, however, it's quite a necessity. With that in mind, presented here is a layout for a longboat, one with four benches for seating and two pairs of oarlocks--ideal for a party of pirates and perhaps a few passengers. Indeed, add a swivel gun in the bow, and it could even be used for an assault.
