1. To make the canoe you must obtain the knife. To do this you must complete a number of Chef. Butchers Tasks. The SOS thing only has one use by the way. From time to time you will now get a parachute parcel on that beach.

2. To get the limes you must trade for a bag of lime seeds with Ms.Weeder. You will need ato have a spade at this point as well. To get the lime seeds she will ask you for a Pink Murex Shell. This can be found by diving. However without the third island these are quite hard to find. Try diving during or just after a storm.

3.Yes, the mangoes can only be found on the third island. To get there you must obtain the knife and chisel by completing Chef's Tasks. Then you will need to craft the canoe three times before you can get to the island. The mangoe tree can be found in the right hand corner in the area with the large pond on the third island. Oh and don't worry there are only four places on the temple island with a fifth that is only unlocked after collecting every map peice.

4.The get the spicy curry you must obtain the spucy curry recipe. To get this you must have completed all of chef's tasks. Then trade with him for the recipe. The recipe ingredients are as follows:
Coconut-easy enough to find. Chilli peppers-The bush in Ms.Weeders area.
Sugar Cane- Obtain the seeds from Ms. Weeder via trade and grow them.
Aubergine/Eggplant-Obtain the seeds from Ms. Weeder via trade and grow them.
By the way you will need to have a stone fire and a cooking pot to cook this. 5.Here is where to get then:
Knife- Obtained from Chef.Butcher after completing a certain number of tasks.
Shovel-Obtained from Ms.Weeder after completing a certain number of tasks.
Crowbar-On the third island you will come across the plane crash. Pick up the metal bar you see on the floor. Craft it with the hammer to make the crowbar. By the way the ship is a waste of time. All you will find are discarded Festive Items.

6.Hammer head- After obtaining the handle you will be able to craft this at the crafting station by using a rock.
The jade bug can be found under the rock on the beach where the art easel is.(Area is next to the place where items wash up on shore.) You must squish every bug and the next ones that come onto the screen. Then a big green bug will come on squish that.

7. !!!CALM DOWN!!! =P

I really hope that helped. I know it's long! Good luck!=D

1 + 6)
To make the boat you need the hammer to get the hammer you need the jade bug well go to the place where the exlamation point is and get a perfect under the rock not a well done a perfect. Once you have the bug trade for the hammer handle. Then you need one rock and one vine which you can get from the plant in the place on your map which looks like a bug. Once you have all this craft it at the station. Then make your boat sleep between shifts drains energy.

To get the limes you must finally be able to trade with the gardener who trades seeds. To get the lime seeds you need one pink murex (a shell just a fancy word) dive for it eventually you will find it. Then get the seeds plant them with the shovel (which I know you don't have... Yet).

I'll answer the knife last.
To get the shovel you need all the peices from the gardener. Once thats don't craft it. I ahte those words becuase they didn't help me I had to figure out that you MUST click the question marks at the station.
The crowbar a long section. To get the crowbar you must get the metal pole on the next iseland you travelled to with the canoe. Once on that iseland go to the the place with the crashed airoplane and pick up the metal pole. Then hopefully you still have you hammer so you craft the crowbar at the station using the matal pole and the hammer (you can make a new hammer if needed don't worry).
The knife this is tricky and will take a long time becaus ei havent completed it I just know this. To get the knife you must have completed giving him the lime beans which take a whil to grow from scratch. I think he gives it to you.

The mangoes are on the iseland you travel to using the canoe. Whe you get there you will be in a cave go out of the cave to find a big pond in front of you. You don't need to cross the pond but there is a tree which gives mangoes.

I don't know all this time I thought you had to make it but I think the chef does.

That is all of you questions answered I hope that this helps. Because I accidentally kept pressing this button on my mouse which made me go back to the page before this when I was so close to finishing lol. Ow ma fingers hurt... Well I hope I can answer many questions for you in the future!

Cheat Girl answered:

You don't need it I'm sorry but these people are windin you up.

Cheat Girl answered:

Cheat girl again This othe person is wrong in some places. But if you really want to do this start again and use a walkthrough.

NintendoDSLite answered:

It's true that you don't need the knife to make the boat (you use a chissel which you also get from the chef) but you will need it in a later task for Suzy McDress who is on the third island.
