Location of Gifts (Nautical Quizzes) (2023)

This quest consists of 6 questions about nautical details asked by a random citizen in Bridgetown(Port of Spain), Willemstad, Port-au-Prince, Cumana, Port Royal, and Santiago.

A man or a woman will ask you a question which has to be answered by typing the solution into the dialogue box. If the answer is correct, you will get the position of an item and the logbook will be updated. If not, you're a normal person that doesn't know a thing about topgallant masts and gaffs like myself.

The answers can be found in:
