I remember seeing this as a child. It was one of my favorite series.I was only seven when it went off the air, so I didn't remember a great deal of it later. However, when we first got cable in the 1980's, there was a short lived channel called the "Nostalgia Channel" which ran this and some other long forgotten old series.
I was pleased to find that my old impressions of this series were not exaggerated.It was superb on second viewing.I had forgotten most of it so it was like seeing it all over again. Preston Foster was great as the tugboat captain.Most of it was shot on location, on ships, on the waterfront,dock areas, salvage yards, etc. and gives a great picture of maritime life as it was then.This is one series that deserves to be shown on TV again, instead of rerunning the same 1970's and 80's series over and over again.
