Jack English and three of his buddies were fishing fifty miles off the coast of Atlantic City when they found an abandoned cargo ship.

As they were getting ready to leave, a yacht full of armed men headed straight for them. The name of the yacht was the Bucket of Blood. And, therein lies the tale.
