Now, we must find all practical ways we can use boats. Some obvious one include:
2) Faster travel, cheaper than Minecarts.
4) Wooden Warships of doom!
And now some things that need to be researched:
1) 2-3 deep aqueducts that flow water quickly. Boats go very fast (possibly comparable to pig with saddle on ice.)
2) Boats float up when placed in water quickly. Elevator anyone (Solved!) Now we need to improve on the design!
3) using flow manipulation, could a aqueduct + dock be made where crashing boats is very hard/impossible?

here's a stable dock design:
Make sure you enter straight, or else you'll spin around unpredictably.
If the boat is completely still, you don't need to do the space+arrow manuever. Just don't move, click on the boat to get off, and jump.
Boats are awesome, but unless we get bigger ones and sails I'm gonna be a bit disappointed..
I built a large harbor since I first heard of boats, now it's filled with these tiny crates xD
Boats really need to have a pointy bow for them to not look like crates..
I really love boats and sailing so I hope we get sails and simple wind dynamics in the future.
They obviously break way too easy but I doubt that's intended :biggrin.gif:
Really cool though if they'd take damage depending on what material they collide with, sand shouldn't deal any damage, and not dirt either..
Having boats break down gradually would be rather sweet, being able to repair the boat would be cool too!
water elevator works GREAT , from 4 to 70 in 5 6~8 sec ! (height , 0 = start of the void)
just make sure to watch out for ledges.
also to be noted , the boats DO NOT BREAK if touched from above , from the sides and bottom it does break , so going up a waterfall/waterelevator is a good investment if you have a good treefarm :tongue.gif:
and if the boat break you get 3 wood back so i think it is worth it using it frequently 8D
