So I played the new Minecraft snapshot 15w14a, and I saw a obsidian boat in my creative inventory. I put it in the water, but it sank immediately.

Why does my obsidian boat sink?

  • Didn't realize you were talking about the base game. Mostlikely it is not completly functinally yet or an April fool.

Because it is an April Fool's joke.


After realiasing you were talking about the base game not the FORGE-Mod I found this Article.

When checking all the content I am sure it is an April Fool's Day post.

We have removed the ability to directly harm other creatures. You should be rewarded for helping, not hurting.

Seems pretty clear to me.

  • Nope, they sink in lava - I mean molten cheese - too!

Because it's made out of obsidian...? per chance?

can't imagine that's the most buoyant element in the Minecraft world

    So? Iron isn't buoyant and we can create boats out of that. Also: it's a game, buoyancy has nothing to do with the materials it is made out of
