Boats are what Braves construct when ordered to into a Boat hut. Go figure! Boats have the uncanny ability to explode randomly, usually just as you jump into them. We don't know for sure, but experts are saying that this is due to the "Hunkka Hunkka" wood being used in their construction. The "weartha fuhgahwee" tribe is notable for its exceptional exploding boat range, which ranges from novelty goods to the man who takes his boat seriously.

Many people have never used boats in Populous, don't be fooled by these people as 9 out of 10 of them know how to make you turn boats off in the initial game setup. Most notably by saying "omfg u put on baots u perik" followed by consecutive presses of the holy grail "Alt + F4". To gain a proper understanding of how boats are made please look down below, and no, we don't mean that kind of 'down below' either. However if your name is Keith52 you're excused. ;)
