I'm working on a multiple method to make punts/boats

AFAIK right now the flotation is fixed # x the weight of the craft

I'd like if there was a [FLOTATION:###] command. This sets the amount of capacity for a water craft.

FLOTATION would be the capacity to float things beyond the craft's own weight. This would include the character's weight, things the character carries and things dropped in the craft

Consider that a log floats at half way up without bark on it

(that weight needs to include the character)

Consider that a raft of 3 trunks 1,500 lbs would have 1,500 lbs load

(or Jeb's 3 logs of 1,200lbs floats 1,200 lbs)

Consider that a simple dug out canoe with 400 pounds of wood removed could have the original 500 lbs plus that removal for 900 lbs floated by 100 lb dug out canoe (weight/float ratio 1:9)

A flare out of steaming the side could increase that even more possibly even getting to 1,200 lbs floated, roughly the same as a raft.

Leather used as tarp over wicker framing would also have a high weight/flotation

If we modders could set the flotation we can present various technologies with their own pros and cons much better.

Another factor might be boat durability but nothing I know of can damage a boat.
