A Boat is both an item and a vehicle entity. Place Boat on the water to use it. Press the “use” button on the Boat to mount it.
To make a Boat, you just need two things that are Wood Logs and Wood Planks. Please follow the following steps to make a Boat.
In order to make a Boat, the basic item you will need is any kind of wood Log. Find any tree and use your iron axe to chop down at least two pieces of wood logs and pick them up. You can find trees anywhere in fields or in Forest.
After that you will need to use the crafting table to craft wood planks. Go towards the crafting table and open up 3*3 crafting grid to add wood blocks in the center or any cell of the grid. You will get eight wooden planks from two wood logs in the right-side box to the crafting table. Add these wooden planks into inventory.
Now you can craft a Boat by using the crafting table. Open up 3*3 crafting grid and add Five wood planks in it, in the same way as shown in the image below, so that it should make the shape of a Boat. You will get a Boat in the right-side box of the crafting table. Add this Boat in your “ready to use” stock.
