This datapack was created for Pleasenotme's Speed-Packing datapack contest. I whipped out this pack in a couple hours (it was painful, so I'll keep this description short). You can craft a sailboat with one white banner and an oak boat in a crafting table. The wind shifts twice each day- one phase is empty, and the rest are in all the four cardinal directions. Your boat, when on water, will automatically blow in this direction when you're not in it. Apart from that, it's a normal boat.

Customization: You can customize the boat in two cool ways- by changing the boat's wood color, and by changing its sail pattern: you can even give the sail a skull-and-crossbones to give yourself some extra pirate clout. To change the boat's color, drop one wood plank of the respective color you want onto the boat; it should change immediately. Right-click on the boat with any banner pattern to change the way the sail looks. Unfortunately, you can't change the base color of the sail or the pattern.

Item Storage: You can actually store a single item by right-clicking it on the mast, then right-clicking again to remove it. Pretty nifty. Just be careful breaking the boat while there's something in storage, because it will get deleted.

WARNING: The boat cannot move with the wind when a player is in it. I know this is basically an essential feature, but Mojang hates boat mechanics, so no matter what I tried, I couldn't get an automatically moving boat. Some day, perhaps I'll be able to finally fix that....

Can you still fit a second passenger in the back? btw if possible can you make it so the armorstandss match the boat? Which is probably a lot so I seriously don't mind. Great datapack!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Firstly- the armor stand technically counts as a passenger, so unfortunately you can't fit a second one inside.

Also, there unfortunately isn't a good way to dynamically change the texture of the armor stand to match the boat.

Is it giving you the item, or summoning new boats?

Also, if you installed the datapack while loading up the world, that could've broken some functions.

I think I know what's going on... the datapack is certainly inactive, but you'll need to run the command "/kill @e[​type=armorstand,distance=0..10] near the banners to delete the remnants of the boat.

I should really add an uninstall function.
