Plot bullets


  • A group of college friends want some adventure. Real adventure, not just college sports. They form The Adventure Club.

  • They realize that adventure might await them elsewhere, but not at college or back home. They decide to go on a motorboat excursion along the Atlantic coast.

  • The number of boys who wan to go expands and a second motorboat and crew rounds out the venture.

  • Bad weather always adds to the dangers of any sea voyage, and they have their share of that, but these boys also run into a dangerous group of thieves and have to fight for one of the boats.

  • Dangers, mishaps, comradeship, perhaps unexpected profit and memories to last a lifetime are all part of what might be expected by those boys, who would be \'The Adventure Club Afloat\'.
