This is the third in the Henry Aldrich series. The friendship between Henry and Dizzy is tested.
Just to impress Dizzy's girlfriend, Henry goes on a blind date. They "rent" a boat, and Henry causes it to sink. Mr. Weeks demands that they pay for it or go to jail. Henry, Dizzy and Phyllis embark on a money-making adventure. Naturally, their schemes cause problems and they get into more trouble than expected.
A most touching scene is at the Lake, when Henry's father Sam Aldrich confronts Henry about the trouble he's in. For the first time, father and son become close and open the lines of communication. The lawyer in Sam comes out.
