    Titles read: "A ROOF TOP LAUNCH!"

    Cape Town, South Africa.

    Various shots of a newly-built boat called the 'Minx' being lowered from the roof of a tall block of flats in the centre of Cape Town. An old sailor makes boats in his spare time in a shipyard on the top of the building. Several people help him get the boat hoisted over the side of the building and down to the street below with ropes. Crowds of people watch from the street below.
