Storyline

The Sea Raiders, a band of foreign agents, led by Carl Tonjes and Elliott Carlton, blow up a freighter on which Billy Adams and Toby Nelson are stowaways, seeking to avoid Brack Warren, a harbor patrol officer assigned to guard a new type of torpedo boat built by Billy's brother, Tom Adams. Intended targets or not, getting blown up does not set well with Billy and Toby and, together with their gang coupled with the members of the Little Tough Guys, they find the Sea Raiders' island hideout, investigate the seacoast underground arsenal of these saboteurs, get blasted from the air, dragged to their doom, become victims of the storm, entombed in a tunnel and even periled by a panther before they don the uniforms of some captured Sea Raiders and board a yacht that serves as headquarters for the Raiders.

Despite a sense of being "by the numbers" this can be enjoyable if you aren't too discerning
25 June 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Second of three serials made by a variation of the Dead End Kids, East Side Kids, Little Tough Guys and Bowery Boys is a step up from the previous Junior G-Men. Here the boys are once more fighting bad guys but this time in and around the docks, so instead of being land locked and stuck in and around the city we have water based dangers and adventures. To be certain the thrills are purely by the numbers but the waterside setting adds a point or two to the interest factor. As with the first serial the effects are less then special with many shot clearly using mattes, rear screen or models (one need only watch the opening credits to see model work). Made with slightly more care than the first serial its still clear that there is a certain amount of disinterest on the part of the cast and crew who seem to be going through the motions. Certainly watchable, this is something that I'd suggest for a slow undemanding afternoon when your other viewing choices are limited.
