I loved the nautical theme of the book. I was rooting for Nancy more than any other title to help the Captain solve his problem. ( )

A pretty good Nancy Drew stories, one of the originals, so it's very true-to-character and written sort of old-style... I really like the older Nancy Drew books, they seem to stick more the how she is supposed to be. ( )

Book description
Adventure abounds on the 'Bonny Scot' in Boston Harbor as Nancy Drew helps Captain Easterly uncover the mystery of his ghostly visitors. From the moment the clever young detective and her friends, Bess Marvin and George Fayne, take up residence on the old clipper ship they are confronted with fire, theft, and other dangerous situations.
Nancy faces an additional challenge: to find a clue to the clipper's missing figurehead. If she is successful, it will help her lawyer father to trace the history of the 'Bonny Scot' and establish a clear title to the ship for Captain Easterly. But strangely there are no records of the 'Bonny Scot''s past. Why? And why has the prime suspect in the recent robbery at Bess Marvin's home followed the three girls to Boston?
Join Nancy and her friends in their thrilling adventures and discover for yourself the romantic secret of the old sailing ship.
