Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things - these will be marked as spam and removed! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways"/"upright"/"standing" slabs (yes, we see you).

    Yes, it would be awesome for multiplayer + transporting animals easily, and because the chest boat will be added soon, I don't know why they wouldn't add this one.

    I know that guns are off the table, but cannons would be cool and could function like more powerful dispensers but with a different model. I don't see what the issue with something like that would be. But adding a source block that can move with everything attached to it as well would be cool.

         The way I see it, why do we have shipwrecks but not ships themselves? If there was a creative aspect to ship building, then it's not like it would be not-Minecrafty enough. They could be as small and goofy or large and beautiful as you like. Besides, right now after you visit the end, boats become almost completely obsolete, and you can simply wear an elytra and carry a shulker box instead.

         It could work like the following: You first have to either craft a helm, or find it on a shipwreck. Then you build your boat making sure that it includes sails, the helm, maybe a block limit and whatever else. Then you fabricate the ship somehow, and the ship turns into an entity/block hybrid, where the helm acts as the entity which you right-click to steer the ship, and all the blocks the ship is composed of acts like they're stationary (so if the ship moves any entity on board stays stationary on there position while still moving). You can add things like chests, barrels, furnaces (any block except Obsidian, Crying Obsidian, Bedrock, Barriers, End Portal Frames, Structure Blocks, etc.), that all function normally while the ship is moving. 

         The only problems foresee, might be lag and bugs, but that could be fixed with a simple block limit to how big your ship could be.

    No guns because that would make minecraft feel really weird and would kind of ruin minecraft's theme, however I also really want better boats too.

    The idea is interesting. The mods about big boat are  not many, and many of them are not nice.What's more,as a Chinese person,it's not easy for me to use curseforge.So I agree this idea.

    这个主意很有趣。有关大型船只的模组并不多,而且大多数也并不是那么好。另外,作为一个中国人,对我来说使用curseforge并不是很容易。所以我同意这个想法。(还是汉字用的习惯)

    (I don't think a bigger crafting table is a problem so many new possibilities!! [Mojang I'm talkin to you.]) To fix the bigger crafting table problem it could be to where the only way to obtain ships is from pirate's. There could be different kinds of ships varying in length 6-12 blocks in length and the shorter they are the faster they are, to get a first ship there should be stray ships. To capture a ship when you kill the Captain, distinguishable by his hat and he'll be controlling the ship, the crew could jump in the water and swim away or just become peaceful. Would cannons be considered guns?

    I want a boat that is just double the size of a normal boat to bring more animals across

    the sea and maybe an onboard chest ( like the  new  chestboat )

    Guns were not around in the time period of Minecraft, the Middle Ages. It just would not make much sense.

    If the ancient builders had large boats than so should we.

    I just think we should have boats that can fit 4 or 5 people. It doesn’t have to be a ship.

    I did some research and realized that minecarts were invented in 1630 and the medieval era began in the year 476 and ended in the year 1453, a few years before Christopher Columbus discovered America. In other words, minecraft is based on the middle ages and a bit of the modern age, so Christopher Columbus used caravels and large ships to reach America, so these ships would not damage the essence of minecraft much, but would improve marine exploration or other things based in the sea, also in java (and I think in bedrock) there is the function of being able to stand on a boat and the items also so I don't see how complicated that is but in large size and also with all the incredible things that I have made mojang to minecraft I think they will make these ships unbelievable.

    I agree with everything David on the boats. Period guns or early black powder weapons would be great, however I think you'd need more than just one person or a few buddies online to make it fun, I think villagers should come into play, perhaps breeding them and assigning them jobs and weapons or kind of fighter they are and forming armies would be fun, raids would also have to be huge and challenging along with any mobs. I feel like the game needs more life added besides just Steve or whoever the girl character is, perhaps a family would be nice or other random characters and villagers who can add challenges to you and your journeys.

    The ships should also have a bed made into them for the long trips on the sea

    there used to be a boat mod but it was very laggy and the boat would clip through terrain I'm not sure it could work for anything too large.

    What I want to see is a customizable boat, perhaps you are able to restore sunken ships, then add on to them as if it was a block grid of its own, the issues with this are numerous, but any issue can be solved if we catapult enough developers at it.
    Another issue, is what fuels it? Maybe furnaces are burning while attached to the boat?
    There are plenty of mods for this too, and at least one for customizable boats/airships, but it would be nice to have an official, *bug free* version in vanilla minecraft, where homes are never portable.

    Or instead of using a larger crafting table just use the standard one to craft boat modules such as a sail,hiller, outrigger, banner mast etc. so you can build your own personal boat.

    I think a Pirate-Style Boat is pretty unfitting, as all Minecraft "things" are rather simple and Caveman-y. But I still think it should be possible to make a Boat have more seatings, be that linking multiple boats together or having one Larger Boat Item. Maybe just let us leash Boats together like in Bedrock.

    I would love to have the boat be somewhat like in DaVincis Vessels. Would allow you to place beds, chests and blocks in the boat whist retaining their functionatily! Imagine even being able to walk around on the surface of the boat! It would allow you to embrace a water-nomadic lifestyle, which is pretty cool considering the new oceans and biomes.

    Minecraft wants to keep but will also add Airships. Even if they cut the Airships it would still be cool to have working ships

    If this topic is still reviewed by mojang, I would like it very much for this type of update to “hit the water” and to think of bigger boats, I can only imagine things like boat storage and crafting onboard the ship as well as cannons and customizable sails. So with the help of more players “hopping aboard our ship” it’s possible to get this pirate update😀.

    I love the idea of the boats being crafted like Iron Golems are crafted. Maybe some set designs like a fishing/sail boat, a canoe, and a Galleon. Otherwise, I would be all for ships having to be found in the overworld. If you find a particular ship, which maybe has to be repaired, then you can use that ship going forward (a bit like ridable mobs).

    I don’t like the guns and glad Minecraft said no to that. However, I love the bigger boat idea. Even just a slightly larger one that could fit both me and my horse in one boat would be amazing!
