First published in 1998, Mr Fitton at the Helm tells of the further exploits of sailor Michael Fitton.
When the commander-in-chief of the West Indies Squadron orders a second officer onto the schooner Gipsy, Lieutenant Fitton is far from pleased. Feeling his command threatened by this newcomer Mr Fitton also finds his search for the notorious pirate Van Horn's secret base severely hindered. His new officer quickly becomes a thorn in Mr Fitton's side - not only is he inept but he also falls hopelessly in love with the admiral's beautiful niece, Maud.
However, when Van Horn kidnaps Maud, Mr Fitton must lead a dangerous attack on both sea and land, which could provide him with the opportunity of solving more than one of his problems.
