Nailer works as light crew, stripping copper wire and other small-but-valuable material from wrecked ships along the gulf coast, but he knows his days are numbered, as he won’t fit in the tight spaces much longer.  So when Nailer finds a clipper ship with a beautiful girl inside it wrecked on a nearby island after a hurricane, he believes his luck has turned.  Soon, though, the wreck is discovered by Nailer’s abusive father and his band of thieves. Nailer has a choice: hand over the girl, the luckiest of Lucky Strikes any of his crew has ever seen, or take her back to her father, where—she says—Nailer will be well-rewarded, if they can avoid the thieves and rogues actively pursuing them.
