A boat is a vehicle that is used to travel with through a water body. It is designed in a way so that it floats on water and does not sink. Small boats require oars to propel the boat forward. These boats take a lot of manual effort and skill to be learnt. Some boats have a motor attached to the back that allows the boat to thrust forward. These sort of boats are capable of more speed than those with oars.
Boats are used to transport from one destination to another, to fish or even for sports. Boats are also used as lifeboats for safety measure on a ship.
