To begin cleaning up the mess, Buster Keaton nails a painting of the sea to the wall. Salt water floods through the hole, at first it seems to be the ocean in the picture, but then he pulls off the artwork and nails up a pancake to stop the flow.
The Damfino zips along. Before they get to a low bridge, Buster Keaton pulls a lever and the smokestack, mast, and lifeboat lean on to the deck. An inattentive Buster almost misses the second one, but the third bridge gets him and knocks him into the water!
Buster Keaton ties the vessel to the trailer and the trailer to the dock. They christen it with a bottle of Coke that is tougher than the bow, so he smashes the soda with a hammer. His wife and son unloosen the boat's rope. With Buster Keaton standing proudly on the deck, the Damfino slides straight to the bottom of the sea.
Buster Keaton's wife comes out and he tells her that the boat is ready to launch. He attaches the trailer to his car's bumper, then notices that the boat is much bigger than his garage door. While the family waits in the car, he dismantles part of the garage wall around the door. Nevertheless, when he drives off, he learns that he didn't remove enough and the boat knocks down the wall, causing the whole house to collapse.
