The raft is somewhat different from this variant's (and Ferry XQ's) Ferry, but I have now added it to my Man and Beast series and added a link to the relevant page to the notes of this page.
	Regarding the ambiguities, I have clarified the text accordingly. In particular I have dropped the use of the word 'confined' for something applying only while the King is not on a ferry. I will have to look at the implications of not all pieces being able to Check a King on a Ferry.
	As always, thanks for pointing out shortcomings in the page and, potentially, in the game. The 'below average' was certainly justified for the page as it was originally written, and I hope that I have begun to address this lapse.
