I'm ocean-wide legendary in alchemistry. Shouldn't I be getting larger bottles in my boards? I get maybe 1 in 100 boards with mostly 4-color bottles. All the others are a mix of 1-color and 2-color. Is this a bug or are "good" boards supposed to be this rare?

I submitted a petition but Galene's response was, "I can't really give in depth advice or information on puzzle mechanics, because none of that has ever been officially released by the developers."

It's not a bug, it's just the way boards spawn. Alchemistry has a fairly steep curve so even ocean-wide Legendary (which I take to mean you're GM in your archipelago and therefore a fairly low Legendary) isn't high enough to get you the harder boards most of the time. If it concerns you, shop for boards til you find a harder one.

I am legendary in my arch (gull) as well, top ten list shows me as nearly ultimate. I've heard some pirates say "I'm ultimate at X" even though they might live in some obsure corner of the ocean and their true stat is respected or something, which is why I clarified by saying ocean-wide.

It seems like there's something wrong when I spend more time board shopping than I do actually playing the puzzle... but I guess I'll keep doing it until I'm ult. Thanks for the reply. :)

I board shop till I have all 6 colours on the bottom layer so that I have more chance of getting a Cauldron Bubble to start. I don't worry too much about how many layers are in the bottles or about anything much else. Sometimes it doesn't work, most times it does. I am often no. 1 ocean-wide and have won lots of comps with this method.
