      When placing a boat of any type (including boats with chests), they face the direction of the player, then snap to a less precise direction. This is helpful to face them in a cardinal direction, however they do not face north (±180°), only east (-90°), west (+90°), and south (0°).

      What I expected to happen was...:
      When the player is facing a direction very close to north (±180°), the boat placed should face exactly north.

      What actually happened was...:
      The placed boat faces a new position, ±178.6° every time.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Obtain a boat or boat with chest
      2. Face a direction very close to north (greater than +179° or less than -179°)
      3. Observe the boat entity's facing direction/yaw (NBT: Rotation[0])

      Video attachment on Google Drive: Boat placement shown for north and south orientations. Note the second line of text under the minimap shows facing directions identical to the F3 debug menu.
