Storyline

Widowed James busies himself with work. On his new steamship the 'Anne Onedin' the passengers number coal merchant Biddulph, who arranges a shipping contract with James, and his daughter Leonora. The Callons have difficulty managing their line and sell Jack Frazer, father of Albert who is now working in Argentina, the bulk of the company whilst Daniel returns to sea. His first ship sinks due to shoddy workmanship - the rivets used to hold the boat together are inferior, or sea devils. Initially Onedin is blamed but Captain Baines discovers that the fault lay with the original builders and James is exonerated. Samuel Plimsoll, however, the 'sailor's friend', comes to Liverpool to support Robert in his bid to become a Liberal councillor, is unimpressed by James' obsession with profit.
