Red Coins on the Ship Afloat is the fourth mission of Jolly Roger Bay. It consists of collecting eight coins scattered around the course and on the ship.


The red coins are found as followed

  • 4 in the clam shells
  • 1 on top of the pillar next to the bob-omb
  • 3 on the floating ship


TAS Strategy

Mario begins by going towards the metal cap box. He long jumps which allows him to open the box and rebound off the wall with a wall kick dive. He goes to a rock and performs a BLJ to gain speed. Mario stops at the wall, since his speed is not enough to pass through out of bounds. He then quickly rotates to the right allowing him to slide along the wall. When he breaks off of the wall, he enters the water so that the first frame inside is as far as possible, which allows maximum distance covered before the water truncates the speed. Mario maneuvers onto a slope which allows for him to move walk quickly as opposed to slowly falling. At the bottom he collects the 1st red coin. He then move back up the slope, utilizing his speed to clip through the corner of a pillar to get to the next coin. He then turns to move to the 3rd red coin and then does a sharp turn back to reach the 4th. He then turns sharply again, while using a wall for support. He does a kick to move past the wooden board and hits the wall at the end, stopping his movement. Mario quickly sideflips onto the platform with the bob-omb and upon landing, does a triple jump and mid-air ground pound to reach the coin on the pillar. He grabs on and readjusts his angle, diving off and landing on the edge of the board which allows him to grind and perform a jump dive onto the platform opposite the bob-omb one. He then dives onto the edge of the switch, and uses the slope to cancel his dive recover allowing him to perform another jump dive instantaneously. Mario long jumps onto the ship, collecting the bottom red coin. He then dives and uses the dive recover to get onto the edge of the ship, which he then uses to grind and jump dive. He lands just on the edge of the upper ship, and as he lands, holds left so that he can quickly sideflip, and get the 7th coin. He then lands and sideflips in the opposite direction, collecting the coin and activating the star. Mario collects the star on the same sideflip used to collect the last coin.

This star can be collected using 0 A presses.

The main challenge is getting onto the ship. Luckily, because the ship oscillates, there's a time where a floor triangle extends into the water, thus Mario can use it to framewalk onto the ship.
