Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The overall comic tone of Dames Ahoy is implicit in its title. Chubby Otis Harlan is cast as veteran seaman Bill Jones, who while drunk is tricked into marriage by a blonde gold-digger. Waking up the next morning, all Bill can remember is that his elusive bride has a strawberry-shaped birthmark on her knee. His sailor buddies Jimmy Chase (Glenn Tryon) and MacDougal (Eddie Gribbon) then set about to find the missing blonde, hoping to pay her off and get her out of Bill's hair (what there is of it). The girl turns out to be brassy Gertrude Astor, whom MacDougal claims as his own -- while Jimmy, having mistakenly fingered Mabel McGuire (Helen Wright) as the strawberry girl, falls in love with Mabel.
