A hilarious new adventure featuring the inimitable Duck and his long-suffering friend, Sheep.
Duck decides today he'll be
The captain of a boat at sea.
He takes a friend to lend a hand
But nothing turns out quite as planned!
Things are bound to end in disaster when Duck goes on a day out with Sheep. Together, they set out in Goat's boat but Duck hasn't seen the rock ahead and the boat is going faster and faster...
