I understand what you are saying, Mag, but in MY game, when I hover the mouse over the ship in a bottle, all it EVER says is "LOOK at ship in a bottle". It never said "TAKE ship in a bottle". Because of this you cannot see the symbol that is necessary to solve the "Hatch Lock" puzzle. This is why I have been calling this incident as a possible "glitch". It seems that other fellow Boomers are reporting the similar "problem" that I am experiencing.
Could there be something that has to be done BEFORE I will get the "TAKE" the ship in a bottle choice? I've been following your wonderful WT very carefully. Fortunately, you give the solution to that puzzle, so I AM able to proceed to the next step. Thnks, Mag.
