Whenever it suits his schedule and as long as he can make money, Relic has been providing boat tours showing Gibsons from the water. His tour guide descriptions are filled with half and exaggerated truths, as well as downright lies. He thinks he has the potential to make a bundle when a British couple, Lord Roger and Lady Pamela, want him to provide an extended tour for them. To do so, he "borrows" old Stewart's ferry as it's he only vessel big enough, and he coerces Sal to come along as a classy companion who will be able to speak the Lord and Lady's language. Relic won't say where they're going, calling it a mystery tour, but Nick thinks that's a bad idea as Stewart's ferry may get into problems if it hits rough waters. Relic may have regretted his decision not to tell anyone where they were going as he may need someone to save him from the hell that the trip ends up being for him. John may provide that salvation, he who is looking for Relic for his own ulterior motives.
