After his mother's death, twelve-year-old Skiff Beaman decides that it is up to him to earn money to take care of himself and his father, so he undertakes a dangerous trip alone out on the ocean off the coast of Maine to try to catch a hugh bluefin tuna. Skiff Beaman has a boatload of problems. Ever since his mother died, his father doesn't want to get up off the TV couch--even when the Mary Rose, his fishing boat, sinks at the dock. Twelve-year-old Skiff's been bailing out Rose by himself for months, getting up before dawn to pump out the bilge and keep her floating--just in case his dad decides to put his beer aside and get up and go fishing. But once a boat has gone under you can't bail it out.
