Desperate to get it back, they decide to try another time travel trip. However, instead of going back to the same steamboat, they end up on a square-rigged sailing ship in the 1850s. The ship is attempting sail around Cape Horn to the California gold fields. They meet a Cuban teen, who's a member of the crew, and he shows them where to find the gold coins are kept. They recover the $3 gold piece.
Brad and Glen discover that all is not well on board. The captain and the first mate are at odds, and the ship is hove-to in heavy seas, awaiting a chance to tack around the Horn. It's past midnight. Under a full moon, the ship is about to smash against the rocks.
Will the captain or the first mate be able to save them from certain death? At this point, Brad and Glen doubt they'll ever get home alive, with or without the coin.
