The ship's boat is a small vessel ordinarily carried to perform odd jobs and minor operations for a larger ship or deep space installation. This book contains five variants on the same basic design, and includes deckplans (scaled at 1/2" = 1.5 meters) and game ratings for Classic Traveller, MegaTraveller, and GURPS Traveller.
In addition to the standard, unmodified ship's boat, this book details:
- The lifeboat variant, carried by such starships as the Bastien-class subsidized Liner, and equipped with emergency low berths for 48 passengers.
- The System Transport variant, used for short trips within a star system.
- The VIP variant, used to convey nobles, executives, or high government officials in comfort and style.
- The ramshackle Belter variant, used for deep space prospecting among the planetoid belts of hundreds of star systems.
This is the first book in a series of deckplan and short adventure books (in PDF form) by award-winning Traveller author Loren K. Wiseman.
