Free me from the shackles of this island!

Warly

A variety of boats can be constructed in Shipwrecked DLC for exploring the Ocean biomes and moving between islands. They may also be found abandoned in the Ocean (possibly even with attached items). The boats lose durability over time when moving on water. The rate of the loss can be reduced by wearing a Captain Hat. The durability is also lost when the boat hits small Waves in directions other than the wave is traveling, and when hitting large Waves, regardless of the direction. While the player is on a boat, attacks against the player do not reduce Health, instead the boat loses durability. When the boat durability hits 0, the player drowns, unless they are wearing a Life Jacket.

Inspecting a boat without riding it allows the player to see the boat's durability, equip attachments if the boat allows it, and access its inventory in the case of a Cargo Boat. All boats, except the Surfboard, can be Hammered to get back half of the resources used to create it, regardless of its durability. Any attached items will be dropped.

Boats can be repaired using Boat Repair Kits. Continuously repairing a boat requires more resources than using a Boat until it is heavily damaged, then breaking it down to get half the resources back, then building a new one. However, waiting until the boat has been heavily damaged increases the risk for an unexpected attack or a large Wave to break the boat.

Different boats will give different map reveal bonuses. Wearing a Pirate Hat increases this bonus by 25%.
