Tanker and Webb
by Andrew Frederiksen

Tanker and Webb is a Z-machine interactive fiction game written with Inform 6 and is © 1999 by Andrew Frederiksen. It was an entry in the Speed-IF 7 event.

You play as James Webb, a stowaway on an oil tanker bound for Alaska. You're not "cheap". You're "generosity-challenged". Unfortunately, the ship hit a large rock and seems to be sinking. Jim, lad, you'd best be getting off of this boat.

This solution is by David Welbourn, and is based on Release 1 of the game.

Thank You to my Patreon supporters

This walkthrough is provided free of charge since I wrote this walkthrough prior to January 2015 when I began my Patreon account, and also because the work it's based on has less than fifteen locations (so I wouldn't have charged for it anyway). I've since reformatted this walkthrough to use my currently preferred style. I hope you enjoy it!

I'm still creating new walkthroughs! Larger ones too! Please visit my Patreon account if you're interested in helping me create more interactive fiction walkthroughs. I appreciate all the help I can get! Thanks again.
