I would definitely stack sheet cake layers cut into the shape of the boat hull. If you go on the Mainship website you can probably find floor plan layout diagrams for that boat (or a similar one) and enlarge them to use as templates. You could probably use foamcore, plywood, masonite or some other solid board as the base for the upper deck and overhang it slightly over the front windshield and stack more cake as the upper helm area.

King Arthur Flour makes mini cinnamon chips and what they call cinnamon bites for baking. I haven't tried them myself but they are highly rated on their website.
What about a cake stacked to look like a piece of wooden furniture with all of the corners chewed off? Or you could do a sofa with chewed legs and shredded fabric on the arms.
Looks like JOANN has them on sale:
Earlene Moore's cake chart has the circumference measurements to help for ribbons and trims. servings are much more generous than the Wilton chart which I find better for family parties vs. weddings.
