How do you get out of a boat in Minecraft?
I mean without it shooting off away from you in some direction. Maybe I'm just missing something, but every time I right click to exit a boat it seems to shoot off out into the water. I'd like to hop out on to the land next to me and have the boat stay put.
I know you can build elaborate docks with doors and such. But is there a way to just neatly get out of a boat without all that?
The easiest way I find is to look directly downwards, right click to exit, and then carefully hop from the boat. It still moves, but not so much.
Perhaps Mojang may address this in a future update? It might be worth going to the Get Satisfaction page for Mojang and seeing if it's been raised as an issue already. If not, raise it.
