Tony and Felix own a tramp boat, and sail around the Caribbean doing odd jobs and drinking a lot. They agree to ferry the beautiful but passportless Irena to another island. They both fall for her, leading to betrayal and a break-up of their partnership. Tony takes a job on a cargo ship. After a collision he finds himself trapped below deck with time running out (the ship is aflame), and only Felix, whom he hates and has sworn to kill, left to save him. Written by

[flipping through the money in the envelope
Our friend didn't have very much to say, did he?
What do you mean by that?
I mean he wasn't very generous, was he?
There are many expenses; you know that as well as I do. Palms to be greased and people paid to turn the other way. It's getting harder every day.
Well, you tell that friend if he can't be a little more communicative, that this is the last trip.
