Summary
In America's Gulf Coast region, where grounded oil tankers are being broken down for parts, Nailer works the light crew, scavenging for copper wiring just to make quota and hopefully live to see another day. But when, by luck or chance, he discovers an exquisite clipper ship beached during a recent hurricane, Nailer faces the most important decision of his life: strip the ship for all it's worth or rescue its lone survivor, a beautiful and wealthy girl who could lead him to a better life
