Boats are craftable items used to catch fish, besides Fishing Rod. They use Fishing Bait to work and can catch up to 7 different types of fish, which are Whale and Rainbowfish as two new fish types. A map in a bottle can also be obtained with a very small chance.
List of all boatsEdit
There are four types of boats: Row Boat, Canoe, Sail Boat and Steam Boat. The higher tier, the better loot and the more baits used. Sail Boat needs wind to run while Steam Boat uses 300 charcoal per trip as fuel.
The medium fishing achievement perk reduces the number of bait needed by 20% for all boats.
The Sail Boat brings better loot based on how strong the wind was the moment it is sent. There are five states of wind: none, low, medium, high and very high. The Sail boat cannot be sent in the first state, with no wind. The next three states change randomly overtime and can be noticed by clicking to the Sail boat. Casting Very High Wind (also known as VHW) enables the user to change the wind globaly to very high for 1 minute.
Generally, canoe is the worst cost effective boat, following by Steam Boat. Row boat is considered best boat in term of fish/baits, while VHW sail boat is the best in term of fish/time.

Boat loots tableEdit
The chances to catch a fish are not confirmed but rather based on collecting data with an acceptable sample size. The rarity is not evenly distributed to the amount of fish caught. The more fish caught, the rarer it is.
|Actual rate||1/1||1/1 - 1/10||1/10 - 1/30||1/30 - 1/70||1/70 and above|

Red Fishing Bait Orb doesn't seem to increase the amount of fish per boat, but greatly increase the chance to catch them.
- Boats never used to give fishing XP prior to the June 10, 2017 update.
- Sail Boat and Steam Boat were added in that update as well.
- Row Boat and Canoe have a rare chance to get a loot with exactly 5 shrimps. Otherwise, it usually brings back 0-3 shrimps.
