Sail a Crooked Ship synopsis

Bugsy G. Foglemeyer (Ernie Kovacs) has a great idea: steal a ship in New York City and use it to rob a bank in Boston. There's only one problem -- neither him nor anyone else in his gang of robbers know how to sail. To remedy this, they kidnap ex-Naval officer Gilbert Barrows (Robert Wagner) and his girlfriend, Elinor (Dolores Hart), and force him to sail the ship for them. Under Gilbert's unwilling command, the crew of crooks try to work together to keep the barely seaworthy vessel afloat.
