  Cappy Ricks, a crusty old sea captain, returns home from a long voyage to discover that his Family and his business are in chaos–his daughter is set to marry a nitwit that he can’t stand, and his future mother-in-law has taken over everything and is set to merge his business with that of a rival company. Worst of all, though, is that she–in the interests of “progress”–has completely automated his beloved ship, “Electra”!. He sets out to put an end to all this foolishness and comes up with what he thinks is a foolproof plan.
