Boatbug is the skipper one of the barges which run between Foam and Novigrad. Geralt has been hired to watch over then by the Malatius and Grock Company due to reports of monsters in the Pontar Delta in Blood of Elves. There are six uneventful trips before the witcher's services are actually required.
