  • Episode Description
  • The kids think they've spotted a sea monster in New York harbor, but it turns out to be a submersible craft invented by David Bushnell. James talks his way onto the first mission for the new submarine, which fails in its attempt to sink a ship but does do damage that weakens the British blockade of the harbor.
