ACT I. Julia, the haughty belle of Barnstapoole, is as proud as she is beautiful.  All the sailor lads are hopelessly in love with her, but she scorns them all.  On the eve of the depature of the "Bounding Billow" for a year's voyage, Barnabas Lee, a wandering artist, comes to town and falls in love with Julia, who returns his affection.  The sailor lads, driven to despair by their rival's success, plan to kidnap Barnabas, stow him aboard the "Bounding Billow" and carry him to sea.  They are successful in their scheme and the townsfolk returning from seeing the ship sail, announce to Julia that Barnabas was on board her.

In the meantime, Nancy - a gentle damsel - is loved by Joe Stout.  Joe is as bashful as he is honest, and fearing a repulse he induces Bill Salt to propose to Nance in his name.  Bill promises to perform the task, but unfortunately he meets Julia first, and thinking her the object of Joe's affections, delivers the bashful suitor's message to her.

Julia is a great believer in the old saying "One in hand is better far than two in the bushes are".  She tells Bill to bid his friend try his luck a year hence.  Bill, delighted at his supposed success, seeks Joe and informs him of the result, only to learn of the sad mistake he has made.  The whistle sounds from the ship "All Aboard", and poor Jim is obliged to sail without seeing his sweetheart Nance.

Julia tells Nance of Joe's love for her and Nance is heartbroken.  The Barnstapoole girls, having quarreled with the sailors, pretend indifference at their departure.

ACT II.  takes place one year hence.  The townsfolk are waiting on the quay for the return of the "Bounding Billow".  The Barnstapoole girls meeting a party of artists down from town for the day, take a malicious pleasure in going to welcome back the "Bounding Billow" accompanied by the artists.  The sailors who during their long absence from home had quite recovered from their love for Julia, are much chagrined to find that the Barnstapoole girls are apparently quite indifferent to their return.  Even Julia will not speak to them.

Bill Salt has the unpleasant duty of explaining his mistake to Julia and offering himself in Joe's place.  Julia at first spurns him indignantly, but afterward accepts him.  The happy return of Barnabas Lee releases Bill Salt from the noose he had cast about his own neck.  Joe soon finds Nance and explains the situation to her.  The artists return to town and the sailors and girls become reconciled.  The scene ends with the promise of many happy weddings in the near future.
