The new version of Minecraft has added the possibility to travel quickly (40 m/s if I'm correct) by boats that are placed on ice. This is a very effective means of transporting persons, but how to transport cargo using this system?

Is there any possibility to place chests on or store cargo in boats?


In a way, but it's a bit of a fuss.

Donkey and mules can have a chest right clicked onto them in order to give them an accessible inventory:

Adult donkeys can't enter a boat, but they can enter a boat as an baby, then grow up while still inside the boat. So, what you'll need to do is make a baby donkey enter a boat:

Then wait for it to grow up and add a chest to it:

  • Is it possible to secure the donkeys then by fixing them to the boat using a leash? – MedwedianPresident Jun 20 '16 at 15:18
  • @MedwedianPresident You could have a player riding the boat and holding the lead. Otherwise I don't believe so. – SirBenet Jun 20 '16 at 15:20
