Normally considered a quiet, relaxing pursuit, Terry, Grandad and Loz's fishing trip turns out to be anything but.

A bout of seasickness, one too many glasses of rum and a flooded engine are trumped by a heart-to-heart between Grandad and Loz, where the latter lets some long-buried feelings bubble to the surface.

Back home, Fergie encounters a few teething problems when he opens his campsite and plays host to a couple of tightly-wound customers, and Jan is far from happy about the idea of Charlie potentially buying her first car. Gravy, meanwhile, makes a very grand gesture in order to help a friend in need.
