I also had a w/t by A. Tait that said how to get the whale meat, click on that boat in the water nearby, then click on the whale meat and it goes into the wallet which is the inventory....so I got that OK. As for the barrels of water, I got that from the 'text of riddle list of items needed' and it turns out there must not be any barrels of water to get as I could not find them and once I had all the other stuff the game moved me on to the next scene/riddle.
Now, I have played all the way to that battle at the headland of Greenland and have beat all those ships, but when the game jumps to the screen to ask me to swap disks, it does not tell me which disk to swap to and I have tried all three. There apparently was/is a problem with Disc #3 and when I bought this game last November 2002 they became aware of it and supposedly corrected the Disc 3 before shipping some orders out - also they refunded all my money and told me to keep the game - but something is still wrong with mine. I have just emailed almack and will be awaiting their reply to me. Too bad, I was really enoying this game and if this problem can't be corrected then I can't finish it. Phooey
