In the Caribbean Sea near the Bahama islands, a tourist swimmer finds the submerged body of a seaman who has disappeared from a destroyer of the US Navy. The victim wore his dress whites, an officer's sword (honed to a razor-sharp edge), and a Saint Christopher medal; chained to the body were two weights of 25 pounds (11.36 kilos) apiece. Gibbs and company investigate aboard the ship and elsewhere; Abby tells them about a document of a strange sort in the pocket of the sailor's jumper, and she offers some insight about it. The team eventually identify aboard the same ship a petty officer who's connected with the victim and the death; they also save the skipper from an explosion. Written by DocRushing
