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.

The Low-down: I can only echo what others have said: "a classic design rendered by one of the masters of the game". For the price, you really can't beat this booklet if you want to know more about this vehicle. The Great: Tons of detai [...]

What’s not to like! A classic design rendered by one of the masters of the game. The text descriptions are everything that you would expect and include many of the details that I always wondered about. Two small criticisms … [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
