Place the bathtub boat on/in water in a ‘shallow water’ area that has fairly flat ground underneath, if you have no shallow water in your map then build a small launch dock, then add fuel to bath tub boat and off you go.
The Bath tub boat can be placed on land but will barely be able to move (new physics colliders experiment) rendering it unsteerable and very very slow to move.
Usual controls for ‘vehicles’ except space bar and c control the up and down angles (same as the gyro) which you may need to adjust slightly as you travel on water. If you let go of w and shift (Turbo) then the boat slowly comes to a stop, pressing s will slow the boat down more quickly this replaces spacebar as the brake key. This version has steering from the back of the boat as it would normally be when driven by the outboard motor so will handle accordingly.
To anchor the bath boat and stop it drifting away use c and spacebar to level the boat till it stops drifting, useful if you have a fishing mod installed.
The bathtub boat is craftable in a standard workbench with no progression needed at the cost of various resources and by creating the required assemblies to build it, it will help early game if you actually find a ‘working workbench’ and this allow you to make the bath tub a lot sooner.
The bath tub boat can be picked up into inventory providing the boats inventory is empty as per normal vehicles if you sink it at any point, although be careful if you sink it too far away from the shores as it could be a long swim back. Best to not store stuff as Zombies now can attack water vehicles in game.
There are some bigger boats and new smaller options in the works, as of the 9th September 2020 Ragsy has a small fishing boat (WIP) and a Larger River boat (WIP).
Next planned watercraft are the smaller types 1 seater and 2 seater and looking at a yacht.
