Shui Razor cashes in his winning ticket at Ladbet International. Suki Hall is at the presentation ceremony with an official from the company, for this PR shot. The whole world cheer the Japanese rescuer for his bravery, having lost two ships to Kulo-Luna. He still dived into dangerous netting to save Kuna, the baby humpback whale. He hopes that Kulo-Luna will not sink any more of his vessels. And he has a new respect for humpback whales. John Storm is both amazed and pleased to find Shui had been betting on Kulo-Luna to win.

In this fictional (original) John Storm climate and ocean adventure story, Great Sandy Straits Marina is located at Hervey Bay, Urangan, off the Fraser (Island) Coast of Queensland.

 

The harbour masters are Harold Harker and Todd Timms. They operate a friendly boat and yacht clubhouse, that is fairly well frequented by locals, mainly because of the good seafood and other culinary delights. Though is a relatively quiet backwater, chiefly attracting the boating fraternity. Boasting a superb restaurant that serves meals prepared to very high standards. If you like to eat and mess about in boats, this is the place for you.

 

Not far offshore, Kulo Luna gives birth to Kuna, then sinks the Jonah whaling ship as a potential threat to her new born. An inquisitive humpback calf, Kuna is busy exploring the coast, and enters the Marina harbour, getting tangled in ghost fishing nets.

 

Harold and Todd, and all their customers, cannot believe the unfolding drama, where Shui Razor, a hardened whaling captain, dives into the harbour to rescue Kuna from drowning. Then John Storm joins Shui Razor in the rescue efforts. Suddenly, with a helicopter hovering overhead, their little marina is thrust into the news as an ABC main feature. Since, the whole world has been following the chase and betting on the outcome.

 

Cut free, Kulo and Kuna give a fabulous broaching display, and swim up to Shui to nudge him affectionately. Then, Shui kisses Kulo Luna.  The whole world gasps at this turn of events. Then, Shui reveals that he holds a winning ticket, having bet on Kulo Luna to win. But despite his massive win, he has no money to pay for food and he is starving.

 

John Storm offers to buy Shui a meal, but Harold Harker will not hear of it. "Food for Shui Razor and the Elizabeth Swann crew is on the house."
