Steamboat Bill's steamer business now has to compete with the steamer of JJ King's, who already owns half the town. The same day, Bill's son arrives by train from Boston, where he has finished his studies. King's daughter, whom Bill Jr. also knows, arrives the same day by car. Kitty expects Bill Jr. to meet with her on her father's boat in the evening, but Bill Sr. is obviously opposed to it, and Junior's attempt fails. Bill Sr.'s boat is then declared unsafe, and when Bill assaults him, King manages to get his competitor thrown into prison. The day gets very wet and windy. Junior tries to get his father to escape, first with a bread containing hidden tools, then by accidentally knocking the sheriff out. When the cyclone hits, buildings are torn away and JJ's steamer sinks. The jail slides into the river, with Bill Sr. in it. Junior is flown into the air by the storm and lands into the river. He manages to climb aboard his father's steamer, rigs remote controls with ropes so that he can pilot the boat and control the propeller at the same time. He manages to first rescue Kitty who is clinging to a house that ended in the river, and then to rescue his father by driving the boat through the floating jail. Junior then quickly jumps into the river, leaving a puzzled Kitty. But his intentions become clear when he returns towing a minister.
