This Infocom game nails the pacing. The game always felt exciting. You play a young woman searching for her father who is abducted by pirates. You carry out increasingly bold tasks throughout the game, and, as a player, I felt excited at my ability to be part of the action instead of being helpless on the side.

I played this very recently and I think I got stuck in the same place as you. :) I didn't have any problems with looking for hints, though, after I'd exhausted everything I could think of (and I'm still ambivalent about the solution I missed. I sorta see why I should have been able to solve it, but totally know why that simply didn't occur to me). Naturally, my hat is off to you for choosing not to resort to them.
Funnily enough, I solved the feelies-necessary puzzle without even realising that I had the clue in the feelies. I just did things that I thought were obvious to some objects around me that seemed to be implemented, and hey presto.
Did you notice the game has different endings? They mostly hinge on your actions in the endgame.
