You don't really ride it like the presidential metro[edit source]

Sure you can climb aboard, unlike the Pitt handcar, but there's no animation sequence like the metro. It fades to black and you wake up on the same boat, now in point lookout. --BigMill 21:33, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

The very first time you go to Point Lookout there is an animation sequence where you look at the boardwalk which has a pack of dogs running across it, and you turn to see the Calvert Mansion and the Lighthouse right before you regain control of you character.--Moltenfungus 21:40, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Storage[edit source]

I find this useful for storage, i keep a ton of lever action rifle's in the footlocker and the only problem i had when was that bitch nadine stole one, but i pickpocketed it back. Butter 16:42, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

ok, waitaminute (CHecks for armor) NADINE YOU FUCKING WHORE SHITSUCKING EARWANKER! Butter 16:49, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I was pissed when that happened. Maybe reverse pickpocket with 100% tesla or hellfire. TheLastNinJew 16:54, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Im on Pc, ill just get a new set,untill then im gonna try using nadine as my new target practise. "Oh nadine,your standing awfully close to the side of the boat,try lieing down"
Beware that the infamous Paladin Hoss will follow you there and steal your stuff (you'll catch him in the act don't worry).

Nadine:"no" (Shoots with gauss rifle) "STAY DOWN BITCH!" Butter 16:57, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

SHe looks my sister when that brick gave her a half face,but untill i find a way to give nadine revenge (Loads gauss minigun) This is YOUR fortune now bitch. Butter 17:02, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Travel Time?[edit source]

Did anyone else notice that it takes about a month of in-game time to travel to Point Lookout and back?

Wow, I never noticed that. Nice find. I'm going to exploit this and travel 100 years into the future. BrenMan 94 23:01, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Man, that's messed up. Two months to travel a distance so short it shouldn't take longer than a few days for a round trip at the very most? Damn, what were they thinking? That explains why it says "2282" on my wait screen.... Blutteufel 14:13, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hi! Hmm. I think she's so slow because she's an amusement park ride that has been adapted by Tobar for ferry use. I base this idea on there being an amusement park at the location. Plus the fact, that in Real Life, in Oklahoma City's Lincoln Park, they have a similar type of water craft used as lake ride. I've not been aboard it, but I've seen it. Plus I think I've seen one or more like it in the opening credits montage for "The Wonderful World of Disney". But in the latter's case, it looked like a ride that followed a submerged guidance track, while in the former's case, it was not confined to a track, just the lake itself. So then it follows that as an amusement park ride, it wouldn't be fast, but slow. The idea of there being a sound effect to cover the actual engine or motor sounds makes sense if it is a steamboat imposter and not an actual steamboat.

@Blutteufel Well at least we know that your character isn't in New Vegas as he's still travelling to fucking Point Lookout! GamerAddict7796 20:10, April 29, 2011 (UTC)

Power Source?[edit source]

What is the boat supposed to be powered by? I mean it billows black smoke and makes a lot of noise, doesn't seem like the other nuclear generators in the game.-- 17:09, September 6, 2009 (UTC)

As noted there's no sound in the 'Engine Room', only on Deck. I think we can safely conclude that the Duchess is nuclear-powered but for reasons best, and indeed only, known to himself (and eventually no-one, once he's dead), Tobar decided to expend a vast amount of caps fitting it with a smoke-machine and a holotape player (constantly repeating track 7 of 'Best Engine Noises of the Industrial Revolution'). And they said Wolfgand was crazy... 00:10, September 27, 2009 (UTC)
Poster above, you're a fucking genius. Nitty 00:11, September 27, 2009 (UTC)
