Better Boat is an extremely interesting mod in Minecraft game whose main feature is to fix some aspects of vanilla Minecraft boats. If you are still curious about this mod, download it to your device to explore it in more detail.
After installing this mod, it won’t sync Client-Server. That’s why your boat won’t randomly crash into things because the Client and Server don’t agree on the boat’s position. Obviously, this feature will help you to travel by boat easily and safely.
Besides, thanks to this mod, the boat will not drop boards and sticks anymore: If you crash, you will get the boat back. Even your boat will not crash in collision with animals/crowds.
If you collide with squid or a swimming crowd, it will be damaged, you bounce off and can continue. Therefore, the in-game experience will not be interrupted.
Make sure you have Minecraft Forge and SanAndreasP’s Manager Pack installed if you want to experience this Better Boat mod.
