[edit] 'Arr I Be Ready

Talk to Bill Teach and tell him that you want to be a pirate, agree to help him. Head to the docks to the east and go on the large ship, speak to Bill Teach again and say your ready to begin. Go downstairs, search the repair locker for two ropes, take a tinderbox from the floor and search the gun locker to get a fuse.

[edit] Enemy Ship

Go up and climb the net. Use the rope on the sails, you will now be on the enemy ship. Use the fuse on the barrel thats next to the cannon then use the tinderbox on it. Climb back onto Bill's ship the way you came. Talk to Bill again.

[edit] Working The Decks

He will tell you to fix the leaks in the ship. Go down below the deck and get a hammer, 30 tacks, 3 swamp paste and 6 repair planks. Now you need to fix 3 leaks. use a plank then the swamp paste on each leak you are going to fix. Once you have fixed the leaks go and talk to Bill again. He will tell you to loot the other ship. Get 2 ropes from the repair locker below deck and go back to the pirates ship the same way you did last time. Head below their deck and keep searching the barrel chest and box until you have 10 pieces of the plunder. Go across to your ship again then put the plunder in Bill's chest below the deck.

[edit] Attacking the Enemies

Speak with Bill and he will ask you to fix the cannon. Go and get a barrel from the gun locker then use it on the cannon. Speak to Bill again to find out how to fire the cannon. It is very important you follow these steps exactly else it won't work, when i did the quest, firing the cannon led me to over an hour of annoyance and cursing.

  • Get a ramrod, fuse and cannister from the gun locker, then go back upstairs to the cannon.
  • Pick up some gunpowder and use it on the cannon.
  • Tamp the cannon with the ramrod.
  • Use the cannister on the cannon.
  • Use the fuse on the cannon.
  • Light the fuse with a tinderbox to fire the cannon.
  • Use the ramrod with the cannon to clean it.

Talk to Bill again to receive three cannonballs, then go downstairs and get 3 fuses. Use the instructions exactly except skip the first step and replace the cannister with a cannonball:

  • Pick up some gunpowder and use it on the cannon.
  • Tamp the cannon with the ramrod.
  • Use the cannonball on the cannon.
  • Use the fuse on the cannon.
  • Light the fuse with a tinderbox to fire the cannon.
  • Use the ramrod with the cannon to clean it.

Repeat this three times in total, these must all be correct obviously, if they aren't then you will have to get more cannonballs and fuses. After you have done this successfully the enemy ship will be sunk and the quest is complete.
