A big merchant ship needs a row boat to be able to go ashore on land (the water near the beach is too swallow for big ships like that). In the harbor it might also be nice to have a little bit of variation between boats.

So here is the start of a rowboat.

Awesome! For that kind of boat, I don't think a sail is necessary. Although, boat oars would be great!
I think we can make that be a great decoration tileset for the harbor!

These tiles are mostly decorative, thus you can use a different orientation instead of the plain side or front view as we won't need to "walk" on it.
Len did a good ship tile for WoA, having two orientation would be pretty neat, although, your outlines are actually pretty good too!

True. But copy+paste is a lot easier than flatten, export to .png, and then upload... Anyway I have uploaded it now.

I haven't really thought about that. But using a plain side view is a lot easier to draw than drawing a different orientation. I will think about it, as a different orientation does look more natural and/or better. Do you have a link too Len's ship?

A boat such as Len's is the style of sprite to use when the boat is not in use.
The symmetrical and bilateral boat with an outline indicating that it is an object is something that should be interactive somehow.
