(These can also be made with normal printing paper.)
Sharpies work best, but if you don't have any on hand make sure that the marker will actually write on a map surface and that it won't smear instead of dry. (Sharpie ink dries in about 3 seconds.)
Because maps fold up so nice and neat, the crease of the folds make it easy to simply cut out a square, which is what I did. But if you want bigger boats, you have to cut bigger squares.
Now get that sharpie out and write on your boat your favorite map quote, or traveling quote, or just a favorite quote/verse/proverb/saying. etc.

The road ahead is as long as you make it.
Make it worth the trip."

I hope the tutorial was clear. I know many of you might have already been familiar with this, but hopefully it served to remind you and give it a creative twist.
