What is the official name for that bridge-like thing you walk up to board a boat?
I want to call it a plank, but I know that's not it. I'm fairly certain they're not stairs, but I figure I might be wrong there.

US Navy very often calls it a "brow", which is a very old Dutch word meaning bridge (the Dutch invented an awful lot of sailing and seamanship - their words are everywhere).
Most others call it a gangplank, boarding ladder, depending on exactly how it is built.
