Nursery Rhymes in Alan Wake 2 are small puzzles in the Saga Anderson chapters of the game. Players must figure out what each nursery rhyme means and solve it using clothespin dolls that Saga encounters on her journey.
Solving these Rhymes results allows Saga to find a spell she can equip to make her life easier. While most of these are quite simple, some are more difficult to understand. The Boatyard Nursery Rhyme is one of them.

Where to Find Boatyard Nursery Rhymes
After completing “Return 5 – Old Gods” and uncovering the story of Odin and Tor in the Wellness Center, Saga must return to Bright Falls by going through the Bunker Woods and entering the previously inaccessible area of Billie’s boatyard. The Boatyard Nursery Rhyme can be found in the southeast corner, by the pier (Location shown in screenshot).
How to solve the children’s song “Boatyard”.
You need two dolls to solve the boatyard rhyme. The clue is:
Five little monsters out at sea
In the competition for the winner
They rocked their boats to find out who was swimming
Until a little monster actually fell
Mom called out to the sea and cried
And the sea, she answered:
“If they don’t, they will rot at the bottom
Stop rocking their boats.”
To solve the puzzle, Place the monster doll on the boat (bottom left) and that Mother doll on the sea (top middle).
Where to find the dolls
Both the monster and mother dolls can only be found in Watery after defeated Representatives Thornton and Mulligan. Completing this boss fight will cause floodwaters to recede from several areas of the map, revealing new locations.
The mother doll is located in the Watery Lighthouse Trailer Park. Go to the bottom part of the Watery map and look for one Metal bench in front of the Nursery rhyme on the pier. There are four dolls on this bench, including the mother doll.
You can find the monster doll in the Ranger Hut near the top left corner of Watery. It’s on a cupboard second floor of the cottage.
Where to find the charm
After you place the dolls in the right place, a reality shift occurs and you leave the nursery rhyme. Look at your feet to see a black miasma path leading back to the boatyard. Follow the path and you will come across a group of possessed people.
Defeat them and continue following the trail to find one stranded boat near the second pier.The Anchor charm is right next to this boat. Equipping this talisman allows you to give your flashlight the ability to stun enemies when you point it at them.
