Small Ships Mod

Small ships mod adds a collection of ships to Minecraft. There are a few main ships: the Cog, the War Galley, the Drakkar, the Dhow, and the Rowboat. The main difference between them is in size, but they also have some feature differences among them, such as how many people each ship may hold. There are variants of boats for different types of wood, e.g Oak Cog, and Birch Cog. The wood variants however seem to act the same as each other.

The boats control differently than your average vanilla boats. While vanilla boats just as you go forward and backward, Small ships require you to modify things like the sail. You press R to open and close the sale and then J to increase and K to decrease the sail which helps affect the speed. By default, the ships go very slow without using the sale, but with the sail, they can go very fast and can also go fast with more people. You may also change your 3rd Person (F5) view by using your scroll wheel. To dismount an entity from the ship, crouch(shift) and right-click the entity and if you want to dismount all the entities from the ship, you need to crouch and right-click the ship.

Your Ships can have inventory, just press I to enter the inventory of your ship and store your items. You also use crouch and right-click to open the inventory from outside your ship.

You can also have cannons on your ship. To add a cannon to your ship just right-click the ship with a cannon and the cannon will be mounted. To shoot the cannon you look towards the cannon and press space. You will need round shots (an item in the mod) and gunpowder in the ship’s inventory to shoot cannons. The number of cannons depends on the size of the ship you have.
