Synopsis

The captain's daughter, Josephine, is in love with a lower-class sailor, Ralph Rackstraw, although her father intends her to marry Sir Joseph Porter K.C.B., the First Lord of the Admiralty, who arrives with his sisters, cousins and aunts. Josephine abides by her father's wishes at first, but Sir Joseph's advocacy of the equality of humankind encourages Ralph and Josephine to overturn conventional social order. They declare their love for each other and so the plot thickens and we set sail for a light-hearted tale of love, snobbery and mistaken identities.
