Hello, I am playing Dracula 5 as I enjoyed Dracula 4, (apart for the puppet's arm arrggh)! I now have the same frustration with the boat in the cistern! I have followed the instructions to the letter but no matter what I do I end up back at the beginning! I go forward and pick up the compass, then following the said info WWW NN EE NNN......and back to start. I have restarted three times and tried all sorts of permeations to no avail. I have a gorgon at my right back sometimes, but I thought it should be upside down? The one I end up with is sideways and I guessed the character would make some comment if it was the correct gorgon? Please help it is driving me nuts!
