Hi fellow Boomers,
At the point in the game (in the ship's cabin) where I'm supposed to be taking the ship out of the bottle, nothing happens. All I get is a comment from Nate, but never am I able to actually TAKE the ship out of the bottle. I've been following MAG'S WT.
Could this be a "glitch", or am I missing something?

Hi, I am playing this and I did not take the ship out of the bottle either. Maybe there is something we need to do first.

Hi, Vic
According to Mag's walkthrough, we shouldn't have to do anything before taking the ship out of the bottle. That's why I'm calling this a possible "glitch". Maybe Mag will see this post and give us a heads up on this "problem".

I'm playing too and will see if I have any problems in the same place.

The order in the game usually states - "TAKE". This you will see at bottom of the screen.
BUT - since the game is "funny" in a certain way - the Take when done is followed through differently through out the game.

For example - Take the scarf. The game states that and is seen at bottom of screen.
Nate doesn't "take the scarf" - he takes a "thread".

It is a game quirk.

------ Now for that ship in the bottle.
The order at bottom of screen states - Take ship in bottle. What Nate does is take the bottle and smash it. He leaves the ship back on the stand.

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.

The symbol on the ship bottle stand is not seen but mentioned-described by Nate.

Thanks again, Mag. What would I do without you?
