As you step towards one of the boats, the dockmaster extends his arm and helps you into the waiting craft.

[Tunnel of Sorrow, Boat]
The boat is shallow and poorly made. It shifts uneasily with the erratic currents in the stream. Greasy liquid has puddled in the bottom of the craft, staining the unpainted wood a bilious green where fungus has eaten away the poorly applied paint. Every motion causes the shabby craft to creak ominously. Dead tree branches hang over the dock, casting curious shadows that seem to move of their own will.
Obvious exits: none.
