The official description given on Find815.com is "Sam has followed the mysterious message from the Maxwell Group to Jakarta and has located the Christiane I. It is just about to embark on an expedition to an undisclosed location. But getting on board might not be as easy as Sam thinks...".
Sam makes his way onto the Christiane I and speaks with the ship's captain, Mr. Ockham, and is told that every piece of cargo on the ship has a specific purpose and that he can't afford dead weight. When the chart plotter shorts out, Ockham informs a man named Mr. Talbot that they will have to delay their departure, which Talbot informs him is unacceptable. Sam states that not only can he fix the chart plotter, but he could probably build a new one. Ockham proposes that if he can, he can have a spot on the ship.
In this mini-game, if Sam wants to join the Christiane I he must fix the Chart Plotter before Sukarno calls back. There are three sections of the chart plotter to repair. The circuit lines of each section have been scrambled. Each circuit line must connect to another line or a terminator. You can turn each circuit line by clicking on it. When all the circuit lines in a grid are correctly aligned the grid locks. You have 3 minutes to re-align all the sections.
After successfully completing the chart plotter activity, Ockham welcomes Sam aboard the Christiane I. Talbot begins probing Sam for information about what exactly his interest in the Sunda Trench is, to which Sam replies that he is just getting away, however, Talbot suggests that Sam may be running from something. Talbot questions Sam about a possible girlfriend, and is then informed by Ockham that they need Sam because their destination may trigger a complete electronic meltdown. Talbot states that he will be installing security measures, and then welcomes Sam aboard.
Sam received an e-mail from an Unknown Sender which included a series of numbers in no discernible order. There were also dashes and periods located within, as well as several of the numbers being gray instead of black.

While aboard the Christiane I, Sam looks at the engagement ring that was meant for Sonya. Sam turns on the radio, and discovers a frequency broadcasting a news report about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart from 1937. Sam turns of the radio, places the radio on the shelf, and turns out the light.
Sam receives an e-mail from Tracey R informing him that her search for information on "black rock" was yielding little success due to the amount of companies and organization using the name. Tracey also informs him that she has been able to locate information on Talbot. Tracey explains that Talbot comes from a wealthy reclusive family from the US East Coast, whose family has a history in diamond trading. She goes on to add that the family arrived in New England
in 1908 from the English county of Somerset.
After finding these three clues, a clue for Season 4 is revealed by clicking on the diary on the bed. This activity leads the player to the ABC Website, or The Australian Yahoo! 7 website to complete an exercise.
In this mini-game, Sam received a voice mail message from Tracey R in which she gives information on the black rock which the player must remember, as they are quizzed afterward in a trivia game. Successfully completing the game, will provide two clues (depending on the site visited): "423 Cheyne Walk" or "Daniel Faraday".
Hey Sam. I wasn't sure if you'd get my email so I thought I'd leave a message. OK. The Black Rock. It was a slave ship that worked the black market in the late 1800's. It disappeared mysteriously in the South Indian Ocean in 1881. It was on its way back from a gold collecting expedition in Papua New Guinea. The ship was en route to Africa where the gold was to be illegally exchanged for slaves. Nice, huh? Anyway, apparently New Guinean traders claim the ship sailed away in an Easterly direction, not West, as it should have. And it was never seen again. From what I can make out there were 40 crew on board. And get this... after the "Black Rock" disappeared, no company claimed ownership of the vessel, probably because of its links to slave trading which was outlawed by then. Now while no direct ownership can be proved, what is known is that Black Rock left the Portsmouth docks from slip 23, and a group called the New World Sea Traders managed slips 18 through 27. The owner of New World Sea Traders was a former ship's captain by the name of Magnus Hanso and he would often captain numerous voyages each year - there's a possibility he was in charge of the Black Rock on that last voyage. OK, hope that's useful. Still don't know what all this has to do with anything but I trust you know what you're doing. See ya.
Eight of the following questions are presented to players:
What year did the Black Rock disappear? - 1881 Where was the Black Rock headed? - Africa From where was Black Rock returning? - Papua New Guinea How many crew were on board? - 40 What sort of ship was the Black Rock? - Slave Ship What sort of expedition was the Black Rock returning from? - Gold collecting expedition What docks did the Black Rock leave from? - Portsmouth What slips did the alleged owners of the Black Rock manage? - 18 to 27 What direction did the Black Rock leave Papua New Guinea? - Easterly In what ocean did the Black Rock supposedly disappear? - South Indian What company is alleged to have owned the Black Rock? - New World Sea Traders What slip number did the Black Rock leave from? - 23 Who is rumoured to have captained the Black Rock on its last voyage? - Magnus Hanso
After completing the previous mini-game, and returning to the "Clues from LOST" exercise, the user can now enter either "423 Cheyne Walk" or "Daniel Faraday". to reveal the Season 4 clue. Doing so presents a message saying "If found please return to Penny 020 7946 0893". Calling the number presents no clues, as it is an unassigned number.
Sam receives a phone message from his mother, in which she informs him that she stopped by him home, and is worried that be may do something silly.
Hey Sam, it's Mum again. I phoned you the other day. You haven't called me back. I'm worried. I popped around to see you but no one was home. I know you haven't been yourself since Sonya disappeared. I'm worried you might do something silly. Please call me back this time.
E-Mail - Tracey and the Broadcasting AuthorityEdit
Sam composes two e-mail messages. The first message sent off is to the Broadcasting Authority in which he inquires about a strange news transmission which he received on his radio about the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. The second message Sam sends is to Tracey inquiring about a defect in the camera that he borrowed from her.
Sam receives a reply from the Broadcasting Authority, in which they explain that the trasmission received was most likely a broadcast by amateur radio enthusiasts who often re-broadcast historical recordings.
Tracey replies back to Sam twice, first explaining that the camera she lent him was working when she had it last. The second e-mail details her discovery of the "black rock" clue being related to the Black Rock slave ship.
Web Browser - Amelia Earhart and The Black RockEdit
A video diary made by Sam is produced in which he discusses his regrets in boarding the Christiane I, and his skepticism in what any of the clues he's received have to do with Oceanic Flight 815. Sam concludes that the entire expedition may be a prank, and states that he will get off at the next port.
