The goal of this achievement is to collect 8 bonus stars in the patching mini game. The catch is that 8 stars are only available to a deckhand that has 5 bars in their patching ability.

I was able to get this one pretty fast, here's how I set it up:

- Play campaign mode and pick the Full Career campaign.
- Buy the Steady Girl boat which has the lowest durability.
- Hire Matthew (or Nick) who has 4 bars for the patch ability already.

Fill the boat up with fuel and then just start going back and forth on the map. After a couple days things should start breaking down on your boat and you can use Matthew to patch them up.

During the patch game, try to pick up all seven bonus stars which will help Matthew level up quicker. Repeat this until Matthew is up to 5 bar patch ability which I was able to get after only 3 patch games.

Once he has 5 bars, the next patching game will have 8 bonus stars to collect. Make sure that Matthew has all 5 bars yellow or else all 8 stars won't show up, let him rest if needed. Once you collect all 8 stars and reach the finish, the achievement will unlock. I was able to get the achievement by the end of day 5 of the season in less than half hour.

The patch games are pretty easy, but here are a couple hints:

- You are limited to the number of patch cables you can use, so you may run out if you have to snake around a lot to collect all the stars. Because of this, try to use the longer patch cables when you can to cover the most ground.

- The cables available will replace each other slowly if you can't find the one you need. To speed it up, you can just select the cable and hit the B button to discard which will make a new one show up. You can also hit the B button multiple times if you want to remove patches that you already laid down.
