A daring, impulsive boy, Jack lives to sail, have adventures and
get in trouble. When the" Noronic "docks at Ward Island, he and his
friends gather to admire it, but you need an invitation from one of
the passengers to come on board. Jack spots Henry, a quiet, lonely
boy from Boston with not much knack for making friends, and talks
him into inviting Jack and his group to tour the ship.
The "Noronic" is everything Jack has dreamed of, a grand Great
Lakes cruise ship, equipped with the latest features, its top three
decks full of fashionable passengers. Jack vows that one day he
will captain this ship. And in the course of the tour, Jack and
Henry become friends.
Jack can't sleep that night and looks out towards the pier. To
his horror, he sees that the ship is on fire and without thinking

motorboat, hoping to help the passengers. People crowd the deck
because the only way off the ship, three decks below, is already
engulfed. Jack sees Henry on deck and calls to him as Henry's dad
helps him jump in the water. Jack is able to pull Henry and many

boat joins him and between them they save 51 people, although 118
perish. Jack is a hero of sorts, but many people blame him for
taking the boat out on his own instead of calling someone older to
