comment Can (ocean-going) sailing ships navigate The River
You could portage any ship, technically, given enough manpower. Whether or not it's feasible is different. The gunboats AFAIK were steamship riverboats or skiffs. I guess I'm thinking more of the British ships at the Siege of Fort St. Phillip. You can see in the link there the location of the battle and some of the ships the British used. Look at the sea strength of the British in the sidebar. They had a sloop-of-war, a brig-of-war, and a schooner. That siege was relatively close to the mouth of the river, though.
