Item #: 2948
What happens when a fearless young explorer teams up with a junkyard genius and builds a submarine? Going to sea with an unusual crew, a strangely intelligent seagull with attitude and a dog that nobody wanted, Alfred unwittingly becomes the "Submarine Outlaw" and discovers that the sea is a busy place. Escaping from the coastguard when he is mistaken for a Russian spy sub, rescuing a family on a sailboat in a storm, and running from theives who are after the gold coins he has raised from the floor of the Louisbourg harbour - Alfred learns that a modern explorer must keep his wits about him as he sails on the high seas, or beneath them.
