Happiness, us to be converted into a garbage scow after thirty years of service, Captain Obidiah Rich alters the course of his usual Sunday excursion from Coney Island to Manhattan and sails for the Caribbean. The passengers are delighted with the Captain's adventurous voyage, especially man-hunting Shirley Harris.

The ship, crew, and passengers receive a boisterous welcome home and Captain Rich leans the ship's owners have granted another year of service to the S.S. Happiness.
