Side and rear of a new speedboat. This and another speedboat side by side on the quayside as men unhook ropes from under the boats. Miss Carstairs is seen sitting in one boat with a man in a cap; two other men sit in the boat next to them. Miss Carstairs in the boat as she smokes a cigarette - she looks quite mannish, in a masculine jacket and short hair cut.
