He explains further that you will need to obtain five marks from five pirate captains.

Take the letter back to Redbeard Frank, who will say it's not good enough proof. You will then ask if a letter from one of Captain Donnie's men would count, to which Frank says yes.
Head to Braindeath Island by talking to Pirate Pete north of Port Phasmatys (Picture) and talk to Captain Donnie by the farming patch (you need to be wearing your pirate clothing when you talk to him). He'll give you half a set of orders, and will inform you that the other half was "accidentally" carved into 50% Luke's leg. If you did not bring charcoal with you then you can get some by going through the gate behind 50% Luke and searching the crates behind him.

Mufassah will tell you that the idol of many heads is still on the last ship he sank, off the coast of Dragontooth Isle. Grab your Ghostspeak amulet, diving gear and ecto-tokens; then head off to Port Phasmatys. Head off into the docks to the north and speak to the Ghost Captain (southern end of the docks) to be taken to Dragontooth Island (Picture). Dive at the anchor to the north-east (Picture), then swim to the front of the ship. There will be a Karamthulu swimming around with a key east of the ship; catch it and take the key. Climb aboard the ship and go up the stairs. Do note that there is a Giant Lobster (Level-60) that will attack you. Just ignore it and grab the crowbar from the chest. Take it into the base of the ship and use the crowbar to free the idol from the debris (Picture). Take the idol back to Bill Teach.
Go back to where you found 50 Ships Mufassah and Brass Hand Harry will be nearby. Talk to him. Harry will tell you that he needs you to make a spare hand for him to print with his mark. He will give you broken hands for you to pull apart and make a new one. Break each piece up, then use your bronze wire on the pieces and an interface will pop up (Picture). Rotate and position each piece into place to complete the hand (Picture). Talk to Brass Hand Harry again, and he'll give you an ink pad and paper. Use the hand on the ink pad, then the paper. Show the mark to Harry and he'll give his approval.
Head back to Braindeath Island. Speak to Captain Braindeath. He asks that, in exchange for his mark, you convince the barman of the Rusty Anchor to stock his "rum." He will also give you a number of disguises to help.
Go to Port Sarim and ask the Bartender for some "rum". The Bartender will say he doesn't stock it because there isn't enough demand. You must convince him otherwise. First, talk to the Bartender and choose the option "I'll have a drink... And you have one too!" Keep doing this until the Bartender is drunk. Then run outside and put on one of the disguises. Come back in and ask for "rum." Do this for each of the disguises, then take them off and talk to the Bartender again. He'll give you an order form for "rum". Take this to Captain Braindeath, who'll give you his mark.
Head back to the customs office.
Break out of your cell.
Talk to the locker officer.
Hand the file to Young Ralph.

Once you have all five marks, head back to the customs office in Rimmington. Talk to the customs officer, and you will ask for a folder for your "confession." Hand it to the officer, then get incarcerated once more. Break out of your cell with the lockpick, steal another customs uniform and go upstairs into the evidence room. Talk to the locker officer and ask for your own file to get the marks. Go back into your cell and talk at the barred window to hand them to Young Ralph.
