The Royal Bahamas Defense Force must capture Reginald Cordelle and stop him from following through with a plot to smuggle weapons into Florida from the Bahamas. Waves Dancer is a beautiful sportfishing yacht that is the perfect vehicle for this intended smuggling operation, but its owner, Will Tanner, is skeptical. When he sees the quality of personnel and organization involved in this operation to take down Cordelle, he grants his permission to use Wave Dancer and the action begins.
When young Gaffer Carson takes a temporary job as the captain of the luxurious fishing machine, Wave Dancer, he has no way of knowing that Reginald Cordelle, the previous skipper, was involved in a plot to smuggle weapons from the Bahamas Islands to the coast of Florida. Through some fancy maneuvering between Will Tanner, the yacht’s owner, and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force, Cordelle is reinstated as captain of Wave Dancer. This conspiracy between Tanner and the Defense Force is a setup so that Cordelle and his band of smugglers can be trapped in one of their contraband runs. Wave Dancer is full of great fishing action and adventure across wind tossed seas of the Bahamas Islands.
