That's a nice boat phred. I like the SNOT on the front of the boat.(not sure if you can call it a bow on a small long boat)

That is a huge longboat Blackmoor!  I've actually never seen one quite so large, wonder if it had a special purpose to fit so many men.  How many minifigs do you think yours would hold? You should try it just for comparison  :pir_laugh2:

See my previous post. :pir_laugh2:

Most of the longboats aboard a third rate were also equipped with a mast and a hold under the waterline for supplies. There are even some examples carrying swivel guns.

This is also interesting. The design is from BigBoy, the guy who built that fantastic HMS Victory. The image is too large to deeplink it.

A ship is floating in the harbour now,

The wind is hovering o'er the mountain's brow;

There is a path on the sea's azure floor,

No keel has ever ploughed that path before

I've built two boats for Matterhorn based off DPW's design.  I've added reddish brown flooring and some grates to add just a small amount more detail.  I really love these little boats.  
They are sized as a 24 foot launch, and a 22 foot yawls.  These would have had small masts, spars, and sails though I don't think I will makes those for these two.  I think I will try to make a shorter version at only 2/3 the height for a more waterline look for when the boats are off the ship's beams.  I would like to include the sails on one of these.

I build an admiral barge ones, there's a topic about it here
it was a bit stubby and square, but my main goal when building was that a rowing crew of 8 actually would fit in it.
