1: Starting Out
Go to Port Phasmatys Inn and talk to Bill Teach. Tell him you want to be a pirate and promise to help him once more. Now go East to the port and board the big ship there. Talk to Bill again. Say you arr' ready to go. A cutscene will ensue.
After the cutscene, search the repair locker to get two ropes then search the gun locker for a fuse. Finally, grab the nearby tinderbox off the ground.
Once you have the items, go up and climb the climbing net on the ship. Use your rope on the hoisted sails, and you will get an animation of you rope swinging to the pirates' ship. Use the fuse on the barrel next to the cannon, and light the fuse with the tinderbox.
Go back to Bill the same way, climb up the climbing net on the enemy ship and use your rope on the hoisted sails to get back to Bill's ship.
Note: If you didn't get two ropes at first, there is a rope respawn on the enemy ship, so you can grab one of theirs and use it to get back.
2: Fixing the Leaks
Bill will tell you to fix the leaks. Go downstairs, search the repair locker for 6 repair planks, a hammer, 30 tacks and 3 swamp paste. Now fix one of the leaks. First use the planks on the leak, then the swamp paste. Do this to the three leaks.
Once you have repaired all three leaks, go back to Bill. Get 2 more ropes from the repair locker downstairs, and swing to the pirates' ship. Go downstairs and plunder the chest, the crate and the barrel until you have 10 stacks of plunder.
It's noteworthy to mention that only 6 plunder can be taken initially, and that you'll have to wait for them to respawn before collecting the final 4. However, you can simply log out and back in for the plunder to respawn instantly.
Now, go back to Bill's ship and put the plunder in the chest below board.
3: Using the Cannon
Go back to Bill using the rope swing once more. He now asks you to fix the cannon. Get a barrel from the gun locker downstairs, and use it on the broken-down cannon. Talk to Bill again, then get a ramrod, a fuse and a canister from the gun locker. Go back up, pick some gunpowder from the barrel next to the cannon, and use it on the cannon. Tamp it with the ramrod, add the canister and attach the fuse. Fire it when there are pirates directly across from the cannon.
After firing, use the ramrod to clean the cannon. Talk to Bill one last time, then get three cannonballs and fuses from the gun locker. Fire the cannon the same way you did before, except this time, use a cannonball instead of a canister.
After you have shot the enemy boat three times and it has been sunk, you will sail to the pirate island. Quest complete!
