The coastal vessel, SS Guernsey, is home to an odd bunch of sailors led by Capt. Biskett, a man who has not only to watch the steam pressure - but his blood pressure! His motley crew, led by arch-schemer and mate Tug Nelson, spend as much time outwitting the skipper as they do holding the boat together.
