I just finished a game that resulted in myself and 2 other players on treasure Island with the Legendary Pirate(LP) being the Cacafuego ship on the last turn. The rules state 2 things
1. Players battle for the loot on the Cacafuego ship.
2. Player Pirates NEVER battle each other at treasure Island.

Which is followed? Is the loot just split? If a battle happens do the 2 losing ships go to Pirates cove and not be allowed to turn in whatever treasure is onboard? Don't forget this is our last turn.

Thanks

The rules say:

The Cacafuego is defenseless against attack. Player pirates
battle each other to determine who can pilfer the great riches
of this floating treasure chest

and also:

No player-to-player combat
on Treasure Island
Rival player pirates have a long-standing gentlemen’s
agreement never to fight each other on Treasure Island.

Our interpretation:
The Cacafuego on Treasure Island will only provide Fame points if one player shows up. The other functions of treasure island remain intact. As it is the last turn, presumably all players will want to bury treasure.

Thanks for your interpretation.
Just to clarify what you believe it to be is: if 2 ships are at treasure Island with the Cacafuego, nobody gets the loot/fame because player vs player battles can't happen on that island? We should just bury our treasure and end the game?

I don't have a rules justification for saying this, but I think that makes sense as well. The players battle for it, but they can't (which seems more overarching), so no one gets it.
