Eventually the mother gives in, and young Blood joins a crew. There he finds himself falling in love with a pretty passenger. Trouble ensues when a wicked pirate attempts to forcibly board the ship. He soon discovers that the old villain was one of his father's worst enemies. Adventurous mayhem ensues.
