Synopsis for Crime Smasher: "Crime Smasher Goes for a Ride"

Driving his big sedan in the waterfront area, Alan Armstrong spots wanted killer Spider Vance and his accomplice Hack in another car, so he immediately runs them off the road, then chases them on foot. The hoods separate and Armstrong keeps after Vance, who leaps aboard the Hobbs Ferry just as it pulls out. Armstrong with a running start also makes it aboard, grabs Vance, and beats a confession out of him, right there on the ferryboat deck. By the time the boat reaches Boggstown, Spider has confessed to everything he's accused of, and blacked out. Crime Smasher turns Vance, still unconscious, over to the Boggstown P.D. Meanwhile Hack seeks out some underworld help in Boggstown, and soon a gang convenes at the ferryboat pier, waiting for Crime Smasher to return.

Hack's friends have actually shooed away all the passengers and left the ferryboat crew tied up on the dock, so as soon as Armstrong boards and they shove off, it's an all-on-one melee. Crime Smasher does pretty well at first, but before long he gets head-konked unconscious, stuffed in a canvas sack, and booted overboard. But like morons, the gangsters didn't go thru Crime Smasher's pockets, and he was carrying a pocket knife, so no sooner does the cold river wake him up than he cuts his way free and swims after the ferryboat. He climbs aboard using a trailing mooring line, and sneaks into the wheelhouse, punches out the pilot, then steers the boat into a small island with a lighthouse on it. As he expects, this prompts the lighthouse keeper to call in the Coast Guard, who arrive very quickly and help Crime Smasher to take down the rest of Vance's gang.
