Yep. When using a comparasion, you can decide whether or not use "do" in any situation.

Could someone help me with my sentence order? I wrote: "Eu gosto do barco vermelho mais do que o azul" I'm wondering if that sort of sentence order is incorrect, or maybe its because I used wrong grammar? I'm not sure. I was contemplating on writing "Eu gosto mais do barco vermelho do que o azul" first, but then changed my mind...would that be incorrect as well?

Both are correct, but the second one is more used in portuguese

Someone did. It accepted my translation, which was exactly the same as yours.
