1 9 5 7 – 1 9 5 8 (USA)

Off the New England coast lay Scott Island, an idyllic little place far removed from the hustle and bustle of the mainland.

David Scott’s family had settled the island generations ago and had lived there ever since.

A bachelor, David (Barry Sullivan) was the Harbourmaster for the island, arranging dock space for boats, anchorages, and serving as a one-man rescue squad and police force.

His hobby, which he pursued between storms, fires, and other problems, was running a boatyard.

Here, with the help of young Jeff Kittridge (Paul Burke,) David repaired and rented small boats.

Nearby was the Dolphin Restaurant, run by winsome Anna Morrison (Nina Wilcox), a young woman whose interest in David was obvious to all but him.

When the series moved to ABC in the middle of its one-season run, the title was changed to Adventures at Scott Island.
