Hi guys. I was wondering what kind of boats can carry settlers, and what tech you need to build these boats. I want to know this because I have finally decided to bring my people over the sea:D

EDIT: Could anyone also tell me how to get rid of the unhappiness of "Too crowded!" ?
 
Galley - Can carry settlers but is limited to coastal tiles. (Available with Sailing)

Galleon - Can carry settlers and go anywhere. (Available with Astronomy)

Transport - Can carry settlers and go anywhere. (Available with Combustion)

You can't directly remove this unhappiness source, or at least it is undesirable to, as it is caused by population. You have to counteract it with happiness boosters such as temples, resources, civics, military, wonders and so on.
 
Also, the UU for Joao (the Carrack) can carry settlers across ocean tiles. Available with Optics, I think, whatever one would usually give you a caraval.

You can get rid of the "It's too crowded" unhappiness if you're using slavery by just whipping that population away. If you're not in slavery, you can always starve the population down or, as mentioned, use happiness buildings or trade for happiness resources.
