good idea, but i dont think it should be a kayak, as they are far to complex to simply just make with a few bits of wood! maybe just a light raft ?

When thinking about vehicle's boats are not the first thing to come to mind to most people. But I think that boats could be a neat addition to STN, and add something too do as a leisurely activity when the sun is out. Which brings me too Kayak's and Canoe's. (I will not go into the difference. Let's just say they are the same for the sake of it)

Kayaking/Canoeing
In my opinion a Kayak/Canoe would be a great choice of boat for most people because of it's size.These Kayak/Canoes could be 1 2 and maybe even 3 seats. The size would mean that it could be taken with you just about anywhere you go in your car. How you might ask ?. This brings me to the vehicle rack.

Vehicle Rack
A vehicle rack would be a great way to take your little boat around with you wherever you go. This can be handy if your stuck out after dark and need food. Just take your Kayak/Canoe of the car and go for a fish. plus unlike having a big boat you would not need to worry about it.



Thanks for reading and please reply back about your thoughts.

Definitely a more efficient idea instead of fixing an entire houseboat or something like that. Although I think it should be easy to break. Someone takes a few shots at your car, one or two of them hits the canoe and suddenly you have a useless boat on your roof.

Yeah but what you could do is patch it up with some plaster to plug the hole.

I like the idea but I dont want it as a craftable, I would like to see it as something you find in say a dock or possible on top of a car rack on a randomly spawned car

I think Kayaks are a brilliant idea! allows for slightly faster speed when travelling from island to island, a little storage space to put food in whilst you go over the sea?

Kayaks would but canoes would probably be easier to implement. Although I'm just guessing I'm no programmer. But would be great to see.

As long as i can store this on the car like they had the shovels on the racks quick transport and dont have to worry about someone stealing it or having to leave it behind

Like the idea of in-game canoes or kayaks, but ones you can find... On the other hand, being able to craft a make-shift boat of some type would be nice also. I bet money on seeing these types of things in game.
