Storyline

While out gathering logs from a log spill on his own, Nick runs into a boat in seeming distress. The three man crew - Phil, Richard and Clare - are all right but their rented boat is having engine problems. While Nick tries to help them fix their engine, he sees their cargo and understands why they didn't call for help: they're drug smugglers. Nick is able to radio in a partial cryptic message before Phil realizes what Nick is up to, and holds him hostage. As the smugglers see an approaching boat - Relic - they warn Nick to get rid of him or else. Nick tries to relay a coded message to Relic and hopes that Relic understands before he heads off. With their rented boat still inoperable, Phil decides to drop Nick off on a deserted island so that they can escape. Meanwhile, Jesse and John, worried about Nick after receiving his partial message, go out looking for him. Will they or Relic find him, and will the smugglers get away with their stash and Nick's boat? Written by Huggo
