About the Book

The door of the boatshed creaked slowly open and a young boy peered inside. His face lit up in wonder as he looked around.

When Tom Stevenson meets the Captain he enters an extraordinary world of blisters and barnacles, pirates and gun-runners, shipwrecks and sea creatures. Working side by side to slowly restore an old steam boat, their friendship grows and strengthens.
