This is a page for a structure that's in the game. For the unimplemented object, see Sunk Boat.
The Sunken Boat is a Structure that is generated next to the Ocean, and Flotsam can be found in the nearby water. A parrot named Wolly sits atop the boat, and the Flotsam can be snagged with a Fishing Rod to collect various resources and trinkets.
Wolly will accept a Trinket or any raw/cooked meat as a gift, and give a Crimson Feather as well as a random number of either Flint, Gold Nuggets, or Dark Petals. Wolly will not accept raw or cooked Monster Meat, but will accept Monster Jerky. When given an Old Boot, Sea Worther, Sextant, Soaked Candle or Toy Boat (all of which can be found in Flotsam), Wolly will tell a piece from one of Wolly's Riddles in addition to dropping loot. After trading, Wolly will fly away from the Sunken Boat and return after one game day. His return depends on the proximity of the player. If Wolly flew away and has not returned, spending a day or two a few screens away from the Sunken Boat will cause him to return. Wolly cannot be found during winter. He will leave the boat and return when spring/summer starts.
A Sunken Boat can be destroyed with four hits of a Hammer and will drop three Gold Nuggets, three Boards, a Blue Gem, a Red Gem, and a Sea Worther. Wolly will fly away from the boat if it is struck with a Hammer. Since the Sunken Boat does not respawn, destroying it removes the option to trade with Wolly and should only be done as a last resort if attempts to fish the Sea Worther from flotsam are unsuccessful (flotsam regenerates and there is a 1 in 23 chance for the Sea Worther to drop).

Removed idle lines
- The Sunken Boat was added in the July 30, 2015 update, and accompanied Klei's official announcement of the Shipwrecked DLC, to be released in Fall 2015.
- Wolly resembles a red-and-green macaw.
- The name "Wolly" is a reference to the trope of naming a parrot Polly, with the typical Don't Starve naming convention of W. It's also a homophone of the male name "Wally".
- The Sunken Boat started dropping the Sea Worther when hammered after the Wilbur Vs. the Volcano DLC update. It's used to craft the Seaworthy in linked vanilla or Reign of Giants DLC and Shipwrecked games.
- Wolly speaks in white text for his regular quotes, and in red text for pieces of Wolly's Riddle.
