  • Minecraft Windows 10 edition
  • In-game resources: wooden planks
  • A crafting table

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Gather Resources

    First, gather the necessary resources to craft a boat. You will need a minimum of five wooden planks.

  2. Open Crafting Menu

    Next, open your crafting table. Approach the crafting table and right-click on it.

  3. Arrange Wooden Planks

    In the 3x3 grid of the crafting table, place the wooden planks in a specific pattern to craft your boat. Arrange the planks in the following order:

            │   │ X │   │
            │ X │ X │ X │
            │   │   │   │
  4. Collect Your Boat

    Once you've placed the wooden planks appropriately, a boat will be crafted and appear in the result box of the crafting table.

    Simply click and drag the boat into your inventory to collect it.

Tips for Boat Usage

  • Boats offer a quick mode of transportation across water bodies, making them ideal for exploring large maps and traveling between distant locations.
  • Be mindful of the boat's durability. Over time, boat usage can cause it to break. Consider crafting spare boats before embarking on long journeys.
  • Boats can be controlled by using the W, A, S, and D keys (or the arrow keys) to move forward, left, backward, and right, respectively.
  • Right-clicking or pressing the sneak key next to a boat will allow you to enter it and begin sailing.
