Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Alot of it depends on the water conditions.  We have a 19ft deep-v hulled Whaler that we use in LI Sound, and as long as the water isn't choppy, (from either weather or other boat traffic) my Dr has cleared me for riding through the full pregnancy.  I was worried about placental abruption, but she said that is very rare - avoid the bouncing that fast running on choppy water can produce, stay in sheltered waters and the worst you should have to worry about is potty breaks.
