Renowned sportsman [[Horseshoes Hogg]] is pestering [[Scrooge McDuck]] to get him to finish a very special boat race that was begun eight-five years prior by Horseshoes' uncle [[Porker Hogg|Porker]] and Scrooge's uncle [[Pothole McDuck|Pothole]]. The outcome of the race will determine the ownership of a large southern mansion called Cornpone Gables. The odd (and costly, hence Scrooge's reluctance) part is that for the race to be valid, it will have to be completed with the same 1870 boats with which it was begun, meaning Scrooge and Horseshoes have to raise their uncles' boats from the muddy waters of the Mississippi before they begin! Of course, [[Donald Duck|Donald]] and [[Huey, Dewey and Louie Duck|Huey, Dewey and Louie]] eventually convince Scrooge to give in, and the race begins!
