maybe a lmg mounted on the boat. How will the boat be decked out anyway, being the place they live?

The boat is a Namacurra class patrol boat called the Nostromo. It's main support weapons are two Vektor SS-77 machine guns and a Browning M2. A few of the rooms have been redesigned to serve as private quarters for the mercs.

Describing the rooms may give the characters a little depth

Yeah, I agree. A person's bedroom is probably the most personal place a person can have, so how it's arranged can be very telling of a person's personality.

But then again, if you saw how unorganized my room is, you'd think I wouldn't be able to keep track of my head if it wasn't screwed on when, in fact, I know where every needle in my haystack is.

Now where's the TV remote....?

My room is the same. What's Katie like? I can imagine the guys, but what's she like? A good-looking Laura Croft type, who thinks it's cool or exiting? An unatractive, looks-like-a-braniac-but-has-the skills of Jason Bourne? An angry-at-the-world killer? I'm curious. What movie character would you compare her too?

I've been there, buddy. Anyway, I'll describe Greg's bedroom:

When entering, on the right side is a bed with a cast iron bed frame and a quilt in place of a blanket. Underneath the bed is a trunk filled with the following items: a bottle of dark rum (Greg mentions he got it imported from Panama), a carton of Marlboro Red Label 100's, a copy of Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, a box of .45 hollowpoints, and a Springfield Ultra Compact fitted with Hogue grips (his spare gun, which he later gives to Katie as a gift). On the left side of the room his a beated up dresser where he keeps his clothes. On top of the dresser is a cassette player. He listens to Jefferson Airplane, Joe Cocker, Bob Dylan, Wings, and Plastic Ono Band. In the middle of the room is a fine desk made of cherry wood and a metal folding chair at it. On top of the desk is his cleaning kit for his .45.

I describe Katie having a great body with breasts the size of grapefruits. She has light brown curly hair and a slight tannish tone to her skin. She is very good with guns and prefers to keep her Kahr tucked in the back of her pants. She doesn't smoke, but drinks Castle Lager beer and Sherry (shown in one scene where she and Greg are lying in his bed drinking from a bottle of seven year old Amontillado). She loves sweets, her favorite being a Beacon Nosh bar. She can be extremely violent, an example of being stabbing a Somali pirate in the leg with Ares' Bowie knife.

So she's Laura Croft. Two more things: Give somebody a grenade launcher (M203 or HK79 of the FAL?) and maybe some M72 LAW rockets for just-in-case.
Why Heart of Darkness? It's about a guy on a boat shooting at people on the bank, just like what he does? Does anyone else smoke? I work at Sheetz, so if you want i can provide advice on what brand cigaretts to issue. BTW, what's a Beacon Nosh bar like,or did you just invent it?

Beacon Nosh is a candy bar that contains hazelnuts, caramel, and nougat covered in milk chocolate. It can only be found in South Africa. I've thought of adding a M79 grenade launcher to the crew's arsenal. It'll probaly be used by Rocco during a battle with Somali pirates. I choose Heart of Darkness since it was the basis for Apocalypse Now and I often compare Greg with Captian Benjamin Willard.
