Synopsis
The Leakin' Lena is blown hundreds of miles off course by a storm. They find a mysterious island inhabited by giant horse-flies (who look more like horses than flies, except for the wings and six legs). When a young horse-fly injures his leg, the crew takes him back to the United States. Dishonest John gains possession of the now healthy horse-fly and rides him to a win in a horse race.
