Storyline

Jack is certain that Tom will invest in the Mermaid boat yard. Tom meets with the bank to obtain the loan he needs to buy into a partnership with Jack. Leo gets a job, unaware of who owns the business. Ken tempts Jan with a full-time job offer. Dawn, Ken's live-in girlfriend, finds Jan too attractive for comfort, and he orders her to stop dropping by the chandlery without an invitation. Polly's socially awkward daughter Abby returns to Tarrant from a Swiss finishing school. Lynne meets Avril and learns that she's been seen in Tom's company on quiet walks. After Tom's accountant agrees with the bank, Avril suggests that he sell The Flying Fish to raise the capital he needs. Jan reacts badly to Tom's scheme. Avril phones someone from her past in an attempt to sell Tom's boat. Written by Skip Eastport
