The Weedwood Rowboat is a utility vehicle that functions as an equivalent to a vanilla Boat in The Betweenlands, capable of transporting a player more easily across bodies of water. There are two variations - A regular Weedwood Rowboat, as well as a Tarred Weedwood Rowboat.

How to Use Edit
The Weedwood Rowboat is capable of seating one player and can be placed by right-clicking the item in the water. It can then be mounted by pressing the 'use' key on the placed rowboat. Mounting the rowboat immediately puts the player in a third-person mode, with their front side facing the screen (unless disabled in the config). The rowboat has oars that are both separately controlled to steer it in different directions.
When in the Weedwood Rowboat, pressing the 'left' key will make the left oar paddle, steering the rowboat to the right, and pressing the 'right' key will make the right oar paddle, steering the rowboat to the left. Pressing both the 'left' and 'right' keys at the same time will make both oars paddle, moving the rowboat directly forwards, although the rowboat itself will be facing backwards and your player's back side will be facing the direction you are moving. While rowing, a special arm animation for the player is used and a unique paddling sound will play.
The Weedwood Rowboat moves at a pace faster than swimming normally in water, although not too fast. This makes it useful for traversing the Swamp Water of the Betweenlands landscape more easily than simply swimming, and with less risk of being attacked by sea creatures. Its movement is not hindered by Algae, either.
A Weedwood Rowboat cannot break on its own, but can be broken and collected with a few punches.
A regular Weedwood Rowboat can be somewhat difficult to control, as it tends to drift astray when not moving, and even when moving can be difficult to turn and row in the intended direction. Pressing the 'use' key on a regular Weedwood Boat with Tar Drip will turn it into a Tarred Weedwood Boat, which has a tarred bottom portion, will stay in place when not moving, and is easier to direct and control.
