Buster's handmade boat, The Damfino, is finished and is, of course, too large to get through the basement door. When he drives off with it in tow, the side of his house, then the whole thing, collapses. At the harbor he rides the boat out only to have it sink beneath him. The rest is a series of adventures he and his family have with the restored boat.

"THE BOATReleased: 10 November 1921 (27 minutes) Directed by: Buster Keaton, Edward F. ClineCharacter: THE BOAT BUILDERThe building of a new boat has a devastating effect on a house and car, taking it out for its maiden voyage reveals a rather significant flaw, and being caught in a heavy storm leads to a desperately pointless SOS call.HOLY GODIVA 3 - ONION JACK 4 TOTAL: 7 (+)"

" There is probably no one more unlucky and who have a worse maiden journey with a boat than Donald Duck or Buster Keaton so there is a lot of fun slapstick moments here. The 360 degree spin effect of the boat is a fantastic moment."
