this can only be held if you assume that a monkey in the boat isn't counted like a monkey outside of it. dont know if this can be said (wasn't clear from the question)

this may be shorter:
persons: A,B,C
monkeys: I, ii, iii (I is Ed)

1) A, I -> A
2) <-I
3) I, ii -> ii
4) <-I
5) B, I -> B
6) <-I
7) iii, I -> iii
8) <-I
9) I, C -> I, C

Assume M1, m2, m3 as the monkeys where M1 (in caps because he is smarter) can steer the boat. H1, H2, H3 are the humans. Here are the thirteen steps
1 m2, H2 ->

2 <- H2

3 M1, m3 ->

4 <- M1

5 H2, H3 ->

6 <- m2, H2

7 M1, H1 ->

8 <- m3, H3

9 H2, H3 ->

10 <- M1

11 M1, m2 ->

12 <- M1

13 M1, m3 ->

That is it!
