@fishrose43 - Sadly no luck, the glitch keeps happening. I would love to progress but it's looking like the game will never be patched. Really quite disappointed with the lack of support from the developers with the game and it's fast moving rat mass glitches in those scenes.
I made an account just to respond to this, am having exactly the same problem now. Have tweeted the issue at them hoping that might bring a solution to surface, no response yet. So frustrated that I can't find any way to make any story progress Playing with Game Pass on Xbox One S
I was having the same problem on my Xbox. Make sure you hold the right trigger the whole time. For me it was showing the sprint animation whether I was holding the trigger or not, however without holding RT the rays would catch me. Held trigger, made it to the boat
