Contents [hide]


The wind blew away the sailor's cap that Paytah was minding for his father. You fished it out of the sea, but now it is torn and tattered. If you could only find someone who can repair Paytah's father's cap...


Paytah is at the pier near the shopping piers.

(Level Requirement and Fame Requirement unsure. I didn't get this until Level 21, fairly high fame, and level 21 fishing skill)

I had passed by these two children several times, and each time they spoke to me it was about not talking to passing strangers. But one day, it takes a passing stranger to help poor Paytah in his time of trouble. Paytah's father's favorite cap has been lost to a gust of wind and has been blown into the water. A little bit of fishing skill is needed to fish out his poor father's cap, but when you do, fishing it out of the water has ripped it! Never fear, a ripped cap calls for a hat expert, go to Baren-Moren in the Waters district, he has to be able to repair it. Sure enough, Baren-Moren can fix the cap, but he'll need some fresh material to do it. Baren-Moren would require 4 Dhalmel hides to fix the rip (I think to myself, that's an awfully big cap...).

Dhalmel hides can be found on either Wild Dhalmel in Tahrongi Canyon or Bull Dhalmels in Buburimu Peninsula, but the preferred Dhalmel is the Wild Dhalmel, as it is considerably weaker than its bigger cousin. (and of course off of other players or at the Auction House)

Return to Baren-Moren with the hides, and he not only repairs the cap, he has plenty of material left over to make a Dhalmel Mantle (ah, that's what the extra hides were for...) that he happily passes on to you. Then return the repaired cap to Paytah, and the boy is so pleased he happily turns over a Leather Ring he doesn't need. Both items are pretty decent reward for around a level 18-20 character, or even sell at the Auction House well, so this quest is worth the effort.

I don't think you need anyfishing skills as I use to fish this up all the time when trying to skill up on fishing.

As for fame not sure, I was probley about lvl 2 or 3 windy fame at the time
Not that hard...

after 4 casts, i cought the hat. i just think that it has nothing to do with your fishing skill, what rod you're using or bait, just that its all about luck. i cought the cap right next to the boy with a willow fishing rod and lugworms in about 5 minutes.

Used carbon rod and lug worms. Caught it right by boy. Friend next to me lost his Sabuki rig to broken line . After that we both used lugs and caught it about the same time. Don't use expensive rigs, worms or lugs work fine. Luck to all

BTW level 1 fishing exp
quick recap?

Talk to the the boy Paytah in Port at i-7 (not j-7).

If he talks about his Father's hat blowing away, you got the start of the quest, trade him the ripped cap. (doesn't matter if you get the cap before you get hte quest or after - i got it and tossed it about a zillion times before i even knew what it was for.)

Then go to Waters and DON'T talk to Baren, just trade Baren at the hatshop (down south in waters, off the map) the ripped hat and he should ask for 4 dhamel hides.

(If you had the 3 giant bird feather's quest going with Baren before hand that's the reason you don't want to chat with him before just trading him the hat or you'll get the bird feather quest again as someone mentioned, which is, repeatable i think (or obviously if you get it again). All i know is i didn't chat him up i just traded the ripped cap to him.

you bring back the four dhamel hides and trade them to him again without chatting him up, he gives you a dhalmel (finally spelled it right) mantle and a sailor's cap you can bring back to the boy in port and trade it to him. (The dhalmel's mantle is for you, not the boy.) The boy is thrilled and gives you a 'lvl 14 def of 1' leather ring, and bob's your uncle.

this recap is brought to you by all the helpful posts that came before it that helped me figure it out. thanks, everyone, this site saves much time and hairpulling. i despise quests but i guess they kill time.

I caught the cap with a Carbon Fishing rod and a Sabiki Rig.

I had been fishing off the pier for upwards of 7 hours before I pulled up a cap. I wasn't fishing for the cap, however... but since I don't see a patented method to fish the thing up, it looks like some people might be in for a wait!

Funny thing is, after I fished it up, my next cast caught another one.
I used to play FFXI. Then I quit.

I don't know my fame level, but I did the quest, but I only got a Dhalmel mantle, no Leather ring. Anybody else experienced this?

Never mind, forgot to trade back the cap to the boy.

Annoying hat

Before trying to catch the hat, I looked at all the other posters, and decided to try using the bamboo pole + lugworm bait. This got me 85% lost catches, 10% fish, and 5% nothing caught.

So I switched to small worm bait. This got me 85% nothing caught, 10% lost catches, and 5% kelp/rusty leggings.

Next I tried switching to clothespole. Basically the same thing with both baits, only less catches due to some items being too small for the rod.

I switched back to the bamboo pole and small worm bait, as you don't lose it when nothing bites it off the hook.

Having kept track of casts, it wasn't until #116 that I finally got the hat. However, my inventory was full. After throwing a suicidal tantrum, I started plugging away again with the bamboo rod and small worm bait.

Finally, #186 was the lucky number, and I kept the hat the second time I managed to catch it. Rest of the quest is a breeze.

Level 16 WHM, 0.4 fishing skill, 30 gil for image synthesis support

Fished off of Fisherman's Guild Pier, further toward the sea from the plank that leads to the Guild Shop, and facing the opposite direction. (On the pier, there is a series of 3 pair of white planks, side-by-side. I fished from the planks just left of the pair of white planks furthest down the pier toward the sea)

I had been trying to talk to the kids for some time, and just happend to go fishing with a friend just to keep him company. I caught the hat on my fifth catch!

On a side note: I also managed to catch a fat greedie (in Selbina or Mhaura) but that broke my taru rod and this was before I caught the Ripped hat and with an even lower skill of 0. I guess I am just lucky.

I don't know why he wouldn't let me finish the quest for the hat, but I put it down for a few days and went back traded that hat to the boy again, and he didn't do anything. Then traded that hat to Baren-Moren and he did finally give me the quest. All done now :)

I've activated this quest and I have the hat, but after catching the hat and talking to the children I went to Baren-Moren, and he wants more feathers. I try to trade the hat to him and he doesn't take it. No matter what I do he only wants me to get the feathers. Perhaps that's what he was saying, and I would like to know WTH is going on. I don't know that this quest gives much detail here. Once again, this quest IS active for me.

I did that and he cried and said it was all tore up, so I went to Boren-Moren and he only wants me to do the Feather Quest again. I tried trading that hat to the boy again, but he doesn't do anything else. Any other advice?

I haven't done it but my guess is you just need to finish the bird feather quest first.(which I also must do) The NPC is stuck on that one. The same thing happens with other NPCs that are involved in multiple quests.

Turn in the feathers for the feather quest, but DO NOT speak to Boren-Moren or it auto-starts the feather quest again. Just turn in the feathers, zone, then come back and trade the hat.

it is possible to do this quest with the feather
quest activated - just trade the hat to the baron
and he'll ask you for four dhalmel hides. i Have
completed the feather quest three or four times
previously, however, so that might have something
to do with it ( although prior to trading the hat
to him i talked to him and all he wanted was more
big bird feathers ) .. i was able to trade him
the four dhalmel hides and receive the repaired
cap with the feather quest still active.

1) this may not work if you have not completed
the feather quest at least once .. i can't
vouch for that

2) my fishing skill was at 5 ( barely )

3) windy fame level 9 ( hero )

4) RDM43

5) rank 4

I caught the hat with lvl 1 fishing skill, using a composite rod and little worms, on my 2nd cast while fishing at the pier by the fishing guild. Saw that the item was rare ex, so I found out which quest it goes to and then figured I might as well use it. ;p

My fame was around level 4.
The boy told me his dads hat had been blown away into the sea. Then I went fishing in Port Windhurst, got the hat within a few hours. I went to the boy trade the torn hat to him, he told me it's no good cuz it's torn up. Then I went to the hat store in Windhurst Waters (south) and traded the hat to Baren Moren. He me to bring him 4 Dhamel Hides so he can repair it which i did. You will get the repaired hat from him which u must bring it back to the boy to finish the quest.

Hello there Unrender! There aren't many Windurstians who don't know that
name. We're all proud to have you on our side! Keep up the great work!

The sister tells me "I'm stranger than most stranger.... "
the brother tells me about his fathers hat being blown to the sea and whines a bit. He talks for a bit. But the quest is not given to me.
Am I suppose to just go fish? and do the quest without it appearing in my quest list?

Time of day has no bearing on this quest. If you talk to the sister standing next to the boy she will tell you exactly what is wrong and why you are not getting the quest. Their mother has told them they should not talk to strangers. You must have enough fame that people know of you in Windurst in order not to be a 'stranger' before they begin talking to you.

I caught it on the practice area of the Orastery. The two semi-circular areas on the map. I was fishing for sardines and quus with a glass rod and a sabiki rig. It was fairly soon after I changed fishing spots from the guild pier. However I didn't know what I had caught and just stuck the hat in my safe for a while until I spoke to Paytah and he whined about his hat. I was fishing skill 7 and level 14 at the time. I can finally wear the mantle now that I reached level 18.
Nothing to say.

Definetely not fishing skill related.

I had a fishing skill of 1.x, came back to windurst on a mission, joined the fishing guild, carbon rod + sabiki rig, and i got a ripped cap immediately on first cast.

talked to paytah, I also got the quest (30-40 seperate quests in windurst done). I believe it to be a decent->high fame quest.

I find this is a great quest to do while or when you want to up your fishing skills. It does take sometime to catch the kids hat or a short time, all chance I presume. I did fish for a while and it was only when I moved to where the kids were that I caught the hat. I was fishind down at the Windurst guild.
