In need of funds, Hardy happens to meet an old friend, now a boxing promoter, and volunteers "Battling Laurel" as the team's prizefighter, only to discover their opponent in the ring is a fearsome old nemesis.
Originally meant to be three reels, the first reel is now lost and exists only in stills. This was set aboard ship and featured James Finlayson and Tiny Sandford.
What seems to be the trouble?
Mugsie Long, proprietor of Ye Mariner's Rest: Ha ha ha ha. She's crying with happiness. She's gonna be married.
Ollie: Who's the lucky fellow?
Mugsie Long, proprietor of Ye Mariner's Rest: I am.
Stan: Can you beat that?
Stan: What a terrible cats-after-me.
Mugsy chases Stan and and Ollie around a long table to get a key back. Stan jumps onto an end chair and runs along the table followed by Mugsy but when he get to the centre Ollie pulls the extension out at his end causing Mugsy to fall through the gap. As he does so he clearly breaks a section of the table. Stan and Ollie push the extensions back in place trapping Mugsy by the neck and there's no sign of any damage to the table. In a long shot from the side there's also no sign of any broken pieces from the table.
