For me this boat is at an interesting intersection of functionality and aesthetics. It just looks wrong in all of the builds I've seen relative to the size of the minis and implied scale of the surrounding terrain. But, I know it is probably as small as it could be and still be practical for use in play.

I get the reasons behind it, but have to more actively engage my "it's smaller than it looks" filters in my brain for it to work.

We are thinking that if DF make the 1.3 million SG an extra midsection for the boat, they will shift a ton of them

My fear is that it the rowboat sells miserably due to it being too expensive, is that DF will just interpret that as no interest...
I really feel that it should be more affordable. I want one but not at that price point :(

The boat may have to go! I have to see how much the trees are :(
I also really like the boat but I’ll probably have to pass and put that $64 to another tree-related thinggy. :(

If this is true Nate really needs to do a video or pictures showing it.


With so many people saying the boat is too expensive, DF really needs to show every single advantage and make sure the factory does it right.
He checked by holding the stern and the prow over each other and the cut outs match up. Unfortunately I'm not sure they have two prototypes handy to actually hook them together.
They may not have two protypes or just not two at Gencon, but I sure hope once they are back at DF HQ they make sure.
I am not so sure they have more than a single rowboat model.
