The Coast Guard standards must have been mighty low to allow Weldon Heyburn and Warren Hymer to enlist. Back in the day it was known as an exclusive outfit, but you could never tell with these two.

These two when they're not chasing women and making fools of themselves are on a case involving smuggling. J. Carrol Naish who operates a gambling boat has a nice sideline in smuggling. Jeanne Madden's dad who is also in the Coast Guard is killed and she is doing her own investigation looking into her father's death. As Naish has a nightclub on board she joins the showgirls one of whom is future Blondie, Penny Singleton.

It's Madden and Singleton who the two Beavis and Butthead wannabes fight over. Their antics do make Sea Racketeers somewhat amusing.
