Keep in mind what Evan wrote: the raised deck version is the most challenging. I agree with him plus, he is the designer of that boat.
Don't overlook what he writes about the changes in the framing.

I can see exactly what it would take, and this is a cabin I lust after. Ive been trying to get jacques to do something along those lines for a while on a different boat.

Look at these examples:

The bulwarks are almost there, just pull the forward edge into more of a slope toward the cabin, giving it almost a point at the side panel sheer forward. Either leave the cabin height as-is or do a small trunk, but the straight line needs to be changed forward of the windshield.

The real trick to the contemporary cabin of a workboat is the shrouding on top. If you do a curved cabin top as the one drawn, it really only looks good with vertical slat windows like vintage tugs, or with the slope evan put on it. If you slope the windows forward, the larger shrouding shown above on the tugs I shot in Ballard will give it the right boaty look.

Add some ports in the bulwarks for rope, and you have some personality~!
