Andrew Gurney knows his father is involved in the fight for a fisherman's union, but such grown-up problems have little place in his 13-year-old world - until a street battle with kids from the other side makes him realise that his father fight has also become his own. Andrew has no idea how dangerous the situation is, until someone deliberately sets his boat adrift - and he finds himself at sea on the stormy Atlantic, struggling desperately to stay alive and save the Dolly C.
