This achievement is very easily missable. You must be nice to Captain Brattigan in order to get this achievement. When you first meet her, don't do like I did and tell her she's an idiot (even though she kinda is) or when you are newly ship-wrecked, don't tell her she killed her crew. Doing these things will mean you're in for an extra 45 minutes (at least! That's how long it took me to run through the main storyline with as little fighting as possible.) of play to get this one.
After finishing the main quest, you'll appear on the docks. At this time you may immediately speak with Captain Brattigan for your achievement.
Worhammers guide is just fine for this achievement, I'm just here to warn you that your game can glitch on you at the end if you don't be careful.
After you defeat The Baronette you will have to choose a companion (you should choose Brattigan for achievement) and then jump down a hole to find Dead Kel. Save before you jump down. Now you can jump down, if you notice your companion isn't following you load back to that previous save until she does. If you don't, as soon as you get to the end of the cave she will stay at a certain point and when you reach the checkpoint rocks will fall between you making it impossible to reach her. (She should be with you)
Do NOT take Capt Brattigan with you to fight Dead Kel. Take the other woman with you, I can't remember her name. Save just before jumping down the hole. Save before triggering the final fight and after defeating Dead Kel make sure she runs IN FRONT of you and that she is first out to the beach.
The game has a glitch that is a nightmare for those that get stuck with it because the Rast spawns behind you far enough that she gets buried at the end and you loose her forever.
As long as you have been nice to the good captain you will be able to talk to her again at the dock and get the chance to "woo her with vigor".
