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.

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

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.

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.

now about my long boats:)
First I tried to build the long boat for my ship like Legonardo.
On this pic you can see a newer attempt, which was oriented by the one from Captain Green Hair and Errorist.
I didn't have a lot of those round bowed bricks.
But then I decided to just buy them online and improve the boat.
Didn't find the right coloured bricks for the rudder but you can easily attach one.
You also can add a bowsprit and a mast, if you want to use it as a little cutter or change the era of time, the boat is floating in.
P.S.: I still think that the long boat from Captain Green Hair and Errorist looks best.

Ha you're right! I suppose I was channeling that picture subconsciously when I posed the figures, although I hadn't thought of it
Thanks! It is nice and roomy. I was planing 5-wide seats, but then was surprised to find that 6-stud fit. I think I will switch back to five though, since the "ribs" I put in prevent the figures from actually sitting on the 6 stud bench properly...
I decided to switch the stripes to dark red, and my black rudders came in so I was able to ditch the dark blue one. I'm working on the pinnace now...
