Walk-Through Spoiler, by Franklin

Once you accept the quest, the location of the ship is visible on world map, it is located on the western shore from Klamath. Enter the ship and prepare yourself to fight several rats, there are many locked doors and also many unlocked. Lock-pick all the doors on the first floor,collect stuff and go upstairs. When you are there lock-pick every door that can be lock-picked, and loot key from skeleton in bathroom. The room with stairs blocked by box is probably of no use. Loot everything from this floor (there are the documents you need for completing the quest, 7000 caps and some other stuff). Return to the first floor and look for ladder in the same room with the stairs and use it to go the lower floor. There are some rooms blocked either by boxes or gas. Well don't worry, you get past that. Open doors with key and kill some floaters and centaurs, and don't forget to loot oil can from lockers inside walls. Once you have it return to the first floor and go the room with many computers and collapsed floor. Use rope on the collapsed floor, that will attach the rope to the hole so can use it to go to the basement. There is a big machine, repair it using Machine Parts you found earlier in the first floor (the room with the second robot) and use oil can on the big red valve. After the repair use the valve and leave for the first floor. In the room with the computers use the other valve, which together with the precious valve and the repaired machine will stop the leaking of the gas in the lowest floor. Well go to the lowest floor using the ladder, and go the room which was previously inaccessible because of the gas. There are crates in various stacks on the floor, open all of them using lock-pick and enjoy the loot ( Combat armor, Metal armor mk2, Sniper Rifle, Combat Shotgun, Bio Med Gel, Rad Away, Rad X )
Strategy Tip #1
The robots remain stationary for a few moments before they detect your presence, so you can use this to your advantage. To get the jump on the robots, do not approach their rooms until you're ready to rush in and attack. So for example, don't go to the door and stand there and talk about attacking them. Have your talk before you approach the door. Then run to the door, open it, rush in and hit the robot asap. Alternately, you can use the computer in the top room to disable the robots if you have sufficient Science skill.
Strategy Tip #2
Most players go on this quest to get a little monetary boost when caps are so short. You can bypass the most dangerous parts of this quest and do the fast version, and just get the caps without exploring the bottom level. This takes far less time and you only have to kill one of the robots and some rats.
Whats in the Boxes?
Each of this crates is protected by lock. There is 2 min cooldown before you can use lockpick again so make sure that you have enough time to open as many as you are planning to.
