After speaking with Caroline, go over to Holgard and speak with him, he will tell you that his rowboat isn't seaworthy, and that he'll need some swamp paste to fix it. 
To get swamp paste, you have two options. The first one is the easiest, but also the most expensive. Simply go to Port Khazard and buy it from the store there. The second option is totally free, but requires some time. Go to the Lumbridge Swamps and collect some swamp tar, then mix it with flour to get the paste.
When you have the swamp paste, go back to Holgard, and he will sail you to the fishing platform. At the platform go west into the house there and talk with Bailey who will tell you about his two sons who went out to find help days ago. Now go to the north-eastern part of the platform and up the ladder.
Go all the way west, and into the house there. Choose 'Shout-over crates' and talk with Kennith. After that, go down to Holgard and get him to sail you to Kent. Kent will tell you about what happened, and after that go back to the platform (Holgard will of course sail you there).
Try going up the ladder to Kennith, and you will be stopped by the fishermen. Go back to Bailey, and he will tell you that heat is the sea slugs weakness. Bailey will give you a torch, and tell you to use that against the slugs. Take the broken glass from the corner of Bailey's house, and then go to the ladder in the north-east of the platform.
Pick up the damp sticks to the left of the ladder, and use your broken glass on them. You should now have dry, damp sticks. Rub them together and your torch will catch fire. Go up the ladder to Kennith, talk with him, then go to the east side of the house and kick the loose panel. 
After you've kicked the panel, talk with Kennith again, and he will hide away in the crane just outside the building. Go to the crane and rotate it, then Kennith will be in Holgard's boat downstairs. Get Holgard to sail you back. Speak with Caroline to get your reward. This completes the quest.
