That's what I meant.  If you drop the anvil in the boat, then your

Hm.  Here's one problem.  Groups aren't encouraged enough as is, and
neither is exploration.  If people have to buy several boats simply to
get a large group to a certain zone, it'd be inconvenient.  So,
perhaps for the Midgaard river offer a river punt that will take a
large number of people (and horses, equipment) up or down the river to
wherever they want.  If you have a long river, or one that connects to
the ocean, then having trade ships would be a neat idea.  The public
transit on water ways would cost money, but less than buying 4 canoes
for 8 group members, or abondoning horses/equipment/group members.
