Can you provide more detail please? "Engage" can mean "meet" or "battle". As long as you target a ship, and get that little red dotted line for the course, your ship should chase down the other ship. Obviously you can't fight the Traveling Merchant, but if you can meet another faction ship you should be able to battle it. Is the Battle button not working? Or is it that you can't meet up with the ships at all?

Sometimes some players see ships at sea that blink on and off as they sail along. This is an artifact of the drawing algorithm and some particular devices. These ships can't be engaged, because they aren't "there" half the time. I've seen this with all kinds of ships, including the Traveling Merchant.

Worst case scenario, you may have to reinstall the game. But as long as you have a Google Play account, your game data should be safe in the Cloud.
