    According to a coworker, the block of characters on the right middle of the map are Chinese, as well as much of the black annulus. Haven't figured out this location yet.

    under how to hunt on the website....it says...

    "Imagine making a boat out of paper. How do you do that? Now take a good look at your pirate chart and make use of the lines drawn on it."

    also, in the email you got when you registered, it says:

    "Use the clues on the parchment to understand the pirate chart."

    I take this to mean the lil parchment in the email, not the chart itself. It references the skull.

    Default help with the map please

    here is the map I received from the volvo dealer.

    here is the clue for challenge 5 in my email.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Hello,

    Thank you for joining The Hunt! From this point on until the end of May you'll venture on a journey to the end of the world…


    By now you should already have left Port Royal and be somewhere in the South-Eastern Atlantic. Your next destination is right in front of you: on the Pirate Chart you picked up at the Volvo dealership.

    Use the clues on the parchment to understand the Pirate Chart.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    When I clicked on the About The Hunt link - it has questions you can choose. I clicked How To Hunt. Then a choice for when you have the map and something like what do I do now.
    This was the answer:

    Imagine making a boat out of paper. How do you do that? Now take a good look at your Pirate Chart and make use of the lines drawn on it.
    (little swabbie is currently doing this as I type.)

    OK....I made the standard paper hat method into a boat that I found on several websites. When you do, the skull is rright on the point of the triangular part that sticks up. On the triangular part though there are more then 8 numbers. More pondering to ensue.

    I also noticed that the ship that is on the parchment clue in email is on the triangular part that sticks up also. Still unsure what it all means, but am thinking the standard paper hat into paper boat model is the right path.

    One last confuser, and I am confused. The Prime and segundo lines embrace the triangular piece that sticks up also.

    Hello,

    Were you able to make out what those Chinese characters say?
