Description of the bug:

Heya! Just to be clear, floating turtles will go through the windlane all the time if their names are green. Those are the ones who won't attack and therefore aren't restricted from traveling. If the turtle's name is red or grey, then there might be an issue here.

Did you happen to notice the color of the turtle's name?

It happened to me too once when I was clearing my ship of tokens and the turtle buzzed right through my ship. It was beautiful and I think I spent three hours trying to place my ship in 'just' the right spot and wait for the turtle to swim through and be ready to get a picture of it. lol
I finally got some good shots but I am sure I totally looked the fool, but such is the fate of an artist in pursuit of their art lol. My friends on the game at the time thought my play by play as I would agonizingly miss the perfect shot again was particularly funny.
I did get some beautiful shots of the local fish life and some great clams. I even posted it as a bit of a drama with The Attack Of The Sky Clams. lol

The color was green, and I thought, another bug.
