During a surprise storm, Captain Savage Raines goes missing at sea.  The wreckage of the Half Shell is found, but with no sign of the commercial fisherman, Sheriff Sandy Shoals assumes Captain Raines is dead.  That wouldn’t be a surprise considering what a hateful codger he was.  After all, who else would name his twin daughters Misery and Calamity?!

The sheriff finds the incident especially curious since the shipwreck was just a day after Savage announced his retirement and revealed plans to divvy up Peg Legg Seafoods.  And since those business plans minimized his wife Peggy’s role in the company and largely cut out the rest of the family with the exception of his bootlicking twin daughters, everyone had a motive for sabotage.  Reeling in audience members to help sift through the evidence, Sheriff Shoals casts a wide net to try to catch the guilty party.
