Head north of the Digsite and look for the canal barge. Find the barge foreman and speak to him. He will say that preparations are in the final stages, but there is still some work to be done until getting the crew ready. He will ask you for a sturdier type of wood. This is required to keep the barge afloat. Note that magic logs don’t have particular side effects so they will not work. He will only accept wood found in the distant Western lands.
Barge foreman will ask you to go to the Sawmill north-west from the barge and talk to the Sawmill operator.
Speak with the Sawmill operator at the Lumber Yard. A Fairly generous offer was arranged between sawmill and himself in the Great Kourend’s Woodcutting Guild in order to obtain redwood planks. Travel to the Woodcutting Guild and deliver the sawmill proposal you received.
Use your skills necklace and travel to the Hosidius, where the Woodcutting Guild is located. Once you reach the destination, talk with the Sawmill operator and hand him the proposal. Try to open the eastern gate if you don’t have the requirements to enter the Woodcutting Guild. In this case, Berry will sing the proposal on behalf of the guild’s sawmill operator.
Head back to Sawmill operator and trade him the sawmill agreement.
Travel back to the barge foreman. He will ask you to board the barge. Lead Navigator should be your next contact once you enter the barge. Once the dialogue stars, pick the first option if you wish to know what happened with the previous attempts of the expedition. If you do not, simply pick the second option and skip the dialogue.
The completed barge.
He will refuse to sail unless you can ensure the safety of the crew, as he believes that the voyage is cursed. He instructs you to go Rusty Anchor Inn in Port Sarim and talk with some experienced sailors.
Use the Rimmington house teleport and travel to the Rusty Anchor Inn in Port Sarim. Once in there, talk to Jack Seagull and ask him about his experience his with the cursed voyages. He will instruct you to speak to the Odd Old Man in Silverea and obtain a lucky bone charm. Afterwards, Ahab will claim that a ‘potion of seagels’ have to be used to sail the voyage unscathed. Ask the navigators which one of these would they personally prefer to have.
Travel back to the Lead Navigator. The Junior Navigator will prefer the bone charm, but the Lead Navigator will want the potion of seagels instead.
Travel north of the Digsite and speak with the Odd Old Man by the Silvarea mine. Speak with him about the cursed voyage and retrieve the bone charm.
Head to Varrock and speak with the Apothecary. He will require two bottles of vodka and a marrentill potion. After you bring him those, you will receive the potion of seagels.
Head back to the barge and provide Lead Navigator with the potion of seagels and Junior Navigator with the bone charm.
The potion will make everyone pass out. Well, except the Junior Navigator. You will have to steer the barge, as he had never navigated in the open waters. Use the controls on the interface and steer right of left. Keep an eye on the progress bar, as it will show you how far you still need to go until you reach the island.
