I got the rubber tree one instantly. The fact that you have to go to that island to pick up the burred treasure, seeing the coconut bouncing off it, and that they used tree's for masts were all clues.
In fact I found that puzzle ridiculously easy.
The distracting the pirates from the treasure chest was one it took me a while to get. You are right, finding the staring contest dialogue option was a bugger!
