In this high-seas adventure, an assistant state's attorney must serve a subpoena upon a wealthy yacht owner. To do this the fellow must sign on as a crew member for a race across the Pacific to Hawaii. The yacht is filled with wealthy passengers. Trouble ensues when the craft is rammed by a gun smuggler's windjammer. The snooty passengers are rescued and taken aboard the smuggler's craft. At first they are ungrateful and boorish, but then the passengers begin realizing that their lives are in the attorney's capable hands and begin pitching in to help.
