Boat Tips

  • Make sure that the boat you are making does not have a hole on the bottom.
  • Make sure that you do not put too much weight on the boat.
  • Boats act as a balance scale. That means there has to be equal weight on both sides.
  • Raise your anchor so you can move your speedboat or ship.
  • Put up your sail on the sailboat so the wind can blow on the sail making the sailboat move.
  • Put a paddle on both sides of your rowboat or canoe so you can paddle straight.
  • Tie your boat up to a pier close to the dock so people can board the boat or ship safely.
