First, you basically fold the triangle in half from left to right.

Then fold it back down over itself on the crease that is shown.

You will fold the left flap up to meet the middle crease.

Then fold the right little tip over as shown.

When you are done flip the dollar bill over.

STEP 7: Fold the bill in half and finish shaping

Once you have folded it in half from right to left as shown you have a boat.

From here on the final shaping is, of course, your choice.

I chose to fold the base of the boat behind somewhat and pull the sails apart a bit.

You can also fold the left sail over itself just a little bit for even more detail.
