You can't have done everything otherwise you wouldn't need a Hint http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif
Have Carla and Otis told you what they need in order to be crew members?
Have you looked for it?

The "boat lady" doesnt give out a boat to just anyone, she needs something to show that you are of government material........

Do you really have the cushy contract in your inventory?
If so, what do you say to Elaine about it?

i looked for CUSHY contract (found by china) handed it to elaine she signed it (cant recall what she said - it wasnt anything bout a boat) and gave it to carla and otis.
Can u tell me how to get elain to talk to me about the BOAT? thats all i want to do, as ive said before ive followed the walkthrough and the only thing it wont do is for elaine to TALK ABOUT THE BOAT

Have you found out why the Harbor Master refused to give you a boat and what you need to show her?
Have you then informed Elaine?

Look in your inventory to see if she gave you an item called the 'Gubernatorial Seal'. or something like that. You have to give that item to the lady at the harbor.

I always talk to Elaine, and say 'I'm having troubles getting a ship.' She asks why, and then I say 'I can't find one'.

i have spoken with the harbour mistress and i know what she wants (proof) i go back to elaine (everything else done and everyone else spoken to) and try to talk to her and it says the sarky comment and he wont talk to her. Does she automatically talk or do u have to stand somewhere or what - ive redo the whole thing a couple of times. please tell me exactly what ye did when ye enter the mansion after talking to the boat lady and how ye stand etc....
