The book is about three kids who spend the day aboard a harbor tug named Pegasus. They meet Captain Smith and other important people on board. The captain operates the tugboat from the pilothouse. Ed is the engineer who takes care of the 12-cylinder diesel. Tim and John are deckhands who handle all the lines. Maria is the hardworking cook who everyone loves.

The kids learn about the different parts of a tugboat. They observe the captain using a chart to navigate a narrow, winding river. They go below and see a diesel engine, learning how hot and noisy it can be in machinery spaces. Captain Smith gives them a tour of the pilothouse. They learn how tugs handle ships much larger than themselves.
