Young Alison Dale's (a boy) captain was not a pleasant man, and the crew mutiny, led by the half-French Jarette, and take over the ship. Eventually the drunken mutineers accidentally set fire to the vessel, and flee it. But the officers and passengers, previously cast adrift, come back and manage to put the fire out. The mutineers who have not gone far return and in the ensuing battle Jarette is killed.
