Duck of Death bug?

I've got the silver bullets, and completed every quest up to killing the duck of death. But he's still immune? I can't progress any further if I can't kill him. This is very frustrating and it makes me not want to play the game anymore.

When I used the pedestal of water it seemed to give my companions and me a buff, we all had halos, and the duck took damage. I assume this gets rid of the duck's immunity. I defeated him in the cemetary with no problem, but there seems to be a bug when you move to his ship for the second part of the fight. After two rounds there is an error, and the program closes. Very frustrating When I logged on again, I was at the life fountain with no life and all of my companions dead. I had to start all over again with the cemetary. I logged in on another computer to see if the problem was with me or the program, and the same happened on the other machine. So, this has to be a bug. I hope it gets fixed this soon. It puts a halt on progressing in this area or out of it.

Did you interact with the basin before you started attacking him? The Free Ranger (and others) state this in the story text prior to the battle.

Where is this pedestal of water? Or basin of water...I have looked everywhere on Boot Hill that I can get to and don't see it...what did I miss? I can't explore the cemetery at the top without getting pulled in...

The basin is on the battleboard once you start the encounter. it should be around the bottom center of the map. So, to be clear, you have to start the fight with the Duck of Death, then send a character to interact with the basin during the fight before you can do any damage to the duck.

I thought this comment interesting.
The fires on the ship, when fighting the Duck of Death have never played a role in the battle for me or any of my friends. Matter of fact, they dont even display correctly, they appear to be glitched, and just put an eery red glow on the ships deck. That is the end of their role they had no effect on battle, do noone any damage, etc. Clue?
