Episode Guide - The Fifth Season

November 4, 1961 [131] "The Case of the Traveling Treasure"

Director--Arthur Marks
Teleplay--Robb White

Perry is all set to go deep-sea fishing with Paul aboard the Viajero II, a fishing boat out of San Diego owned by Perry's friend Scot Cahill. But when Cahill's regular customer has the boat for the weekend, Perry has to charter another boat. Later, Perry gets a ship-to-shore phone call from Scot. The Coast Guard, acting on a tip, boarded the Viajero II looking for gold stolen from the Alchemy Mine. They found some bullion-and a dead man, Karl Magovern. Later, the autopsy reveals the stiff was killed with a fatal dose of digitalis. Worse, the police charge Scot with the murder, thinking he and the murdered man were partners in stealing the gold bullion.

In order to get Scot acquitted, Perry (who again mentions his World War II minesweeper days) takes Burger on a sea voyage aboard a Coast Guard cutter.
