Sons Gary, Brian and Timmy give it an honest try and daughter Susan decides to take a job in a port. Her place is taken by Wally Hudson, who wanted a lift to Tahiti and proves a spoiled brat, without the sailing experience he claimed. Shortly after sighting whales, they are hit by a whole group and sink, too fast to think of sending a radio message. Their inflatable raft is too small for six people and supplies are only for a day or three. To get 1,000 miles further, where sea traffic is far more likely to find them, Jack designs a sail. Everything proves hard, even the rain they desperately longed for, but the boys show great courage. Only after weeks Susan gets a search started. Written by KGF Vissers See less
