Ewan believes Agatha will recover during their trip. She abandons ship at Georgetown, Bahamas and flies to her sister Jean’s house in Miami. Jean despises Ewan and begins working on Agatha to divorce him.
Ewan hires wayward lass Ellie Hoyle and venturesome captain Ross Ryan to help sail Escape back to Florida in time to save his marriage.
