Storyline

Young and awkward, The Coast-Guard's ensign Thomas Garland suffers from the comparison with his late father, a war hero. Which does not prevent him from falling for pretty Kate Fairchild, a young woman who runs a sailing school. Of course the way he expresses his deep sympathy for the lady leaves to be desired. And the situation does not improve when a trio of bumbling jewel thieves interferes. Written by Guy Bellinger

Trivia

The term "Boatnik" of the film's The Boatniks (1970) title was arguably a spoof of the word "Beatnik" which had become a term known in popular culture since the 1950s. The latter can be defined as a person from the 1950s or early 1960s period who was associated with "The Beat Generation". A "Boatnik" therefore can parody this where a seafaring person can be said to belong to "The Boat Generation". The picture was made and released approximate a decade after the 1960 film The Beatniks (1960). See more »
