Plot Summary

Buster is married with two children (both of whom wear the porkpie hat made famous by their father) and has made himself a large boat inside a dockhousen (the damfino). The boat is too large to get through the door and out to sea so buster does what seems logical, he tears down the front of the building housing the boat. whilst out at sea buster is caught in a terrible storm and radios for help but to no avail. after nearly drowning a great number of times and some elaborate stunts buster and family wash up on an island in the middle of nowhere. "where are we" asks his wife to which we can see buster reply "Damfino" (damned-if-i-know).
