Trampas wins big including the riverboat from Skeet. He also wins a substantial amount of money, which the two railroad detectives confiscate as it was previously stolen. Upon landing ashore Skeet quickly leaves with his granddaughter Corey Ann and her beau, Jason, the temporary sheriff before Trampas can catch him.

On the Queen
2 June 2011 | by (Roseworthy, South Australia) – See all my reviews

Flushed with excitement a crooked gambler goes off to get some more money to continue gambling but has to cut and run when the riverboat is overtaken with armed men. A quick swim sees two partners in crime back on the run on dry land where more plotting and scheming takes place.

Trampas is left holding the baby in the form of worthless loot barring a good deed and has to explain his way out of trouble.

Trampas ends up being a saddle-less saddle-tramp and on the water, in a pretty pile of timber with a pretty gal, plus a Moose after much bargaining with a calamitous Captain.

A motley crew arrives to work on the river boat but they look like a bunch of vagabonds from a pirate ship somewhere! So who will end up the richer for the experience?
