Baileys of Balboa, The

1 9 6 4 – 1 9 6 5 (USA)
26 x 30 minute episodes

Widower Sam Bailey (Paul Ford) is the captain of the Island Princess (CF 2122 AW), a decrepit charter fishing boat docked at Bailey’s Landing in Balboa Beach, California.

Commander Cecil Wyntoon (John Dehner) is his neighbour, commodore of the high-class Balboa Yachting Club.

Cecil objects to the lower class Sam and his noisy boat – which he considers an eyesore – and the series relates the bickering relationship that exists between the two men.

Complicating the issue are Cecil’s daughter, Barbara (Judy Carne), and Sam’s beachcomber son, Jim (Les Brown Jr) who are lovers struggling to survive a romance that both of their father’s frown upon.

Buck Singleton (Sterling Holloway) is Sam’s inept and forgetful first mate. Stanley (Clint Howard) is Sam’s young friend.

Also appearing frequently was John Banner as Hans, who worked for Wyntoon at the Yacht Club.
