Ingredients: Wooden Planks.
A boat is both an item and a vehicle entity.
Press the use item button on the boat to mount it.
Pressing the sneak key, a boat will be exited, with Java Edition: pressing down the right analog stick, with Console Edition: tapping on the “Leave Boat” button, with Pocket Edition: pressing the jump key. With Windows 10 Edition: when exiting a boat, the player is placed in the direction the player is facing, or if facing directly up or down, the player is placed in front of the boat. If possible from the dismounting position, the exiting player will be placed on land.
In the Java Edition, boats are controlled using the forward, left (turns left), right (turns right), and backwards keys. Using the sprint key will increase the field of vision, but will not increase speed as if sprinting.
In Pocket Edition, two buttons for steering appear, and in Windows 10, the left and right keys are used. The right button or key steers to the left, and the left button or key steers to the right. Pressing both buttons move the boat forward.
