This game involves some waiting around until people show up. If it's more than a few turns, you can wait 30 minutes (for example - each turn is one minute) or wait for [name] to speed things up, although your waiting will be interrupted if anything happens or anyone in the room with you is doing anything.

The Shanty and Lighthouse

Wind your watch. Stand up out of bed. Get the note, read it, and drop it. Open the dresser and get the key. Open the door and leave the room. Close the door and lock it. Go down, north, east four times, and south into the Shanty. Sit down. Order some food and get some water from the bartender. Eat and drink the water. Wait. When Johnny asks if you're interested in the deal, say yes. Stand up and leave the Shanty. Go west four times, southwest twice, and northwest. Wait until everyone shows up, and examine the object Johnny shows you. Go southeast, northeast twice, south, up. Unlock your door, open it, and go in. Get the passbook. The shipwreck book in the dresser is a game-package item that you use to determine which of two possible shipwrecks you will salvage in the game. If Johnny showed you a gold coin, it's the Sao Vera, at lat/long 40/45 and deeper than 200 feet; if he showed you a dinner plate, it's the Leviathan, at lat/long 25/25 and shallower than 200 feet. You can ignore the in-game item. Leave the room and lock the door.

Follow him back to Outfitters International (northwest, north, north, northwest, west, south). Wait for McGinty to leave. Johnny will rent the appropriate boat. Give the salesman your part of the boat rental. Buy shark repellent and a flashlight. If you have rented the Mary Margaret, buy a dry cell. If you have the Night Wind, buy putty, the electromagnet, and the C battery, and rent the air compressor. High tide is at 2:30, so you need to be on the boat at 2:00.

Lie down and wait. When you awake, stand and get the envelope. Go south three times to the Captain's Cabin. Show Johnny the envelope. Go north and up, then return down. Ha-ha!

Get one of the bars. Go south twice more. Move the bunks with the bar, then wedge the bar under the bunks. Go south, down, and north twice. Turn on the machine.
