Jerry Fay and Red McCue, friendly rivals, after encounters in various parts of the world, meet in New York as rival bootleggers. Jerry, being pursued by the Coast Guard, finds refuge in a seashore house, and when Jane and her fiancé threaten to inform the authorities, he takes them aboard his boat. Red, posing as a revenue agent, hijacks the boat with his gang and makes advances to Jane. Following a drinking match, there is a fight between Jerry and Red over the girl. Jerry ultimately surrenders the boat to the Coast Guard in order to protect Jane; and when wounded, he finds solace in her arms.
