There were a few changes made between the pilot and the rest of the series: Walter Brown replaced Joe McCormick in the lead role, and the family's surname was changed. Leoni Lesinawi played a Fijian policeman, before being cast as a crewman. The original series title was changed from "The Cruise Of The Seaspray" to the more familiar "Adventures". See more »
On the "Seaspray" there was a black boatswain with an Afro haircut, who wore a Fijian Sulu skirt.
Actually, this boatswain (Leoni Lesinawi) was the owner of the "Seaspray", who leased it to the filming company and got the supporting part.
When the filming was over, the "Seaspray" belonged to him and no longer to the bank. He then established a travel agency called "Seaspray Cruises" in Nadi (Fiji Islands). The "Seaspray" still makes day cruises for tourists.
At least the "Seaspray" did so in 1986 when I visited Fiji, but the owner did not take part in the cruise.
