Run Aground is a Buzz Book and was the second title to be released in the series. It was written by Fiona Hardwick and released in 1990.

Plot

Captain Zero is angry as he is not getting any job contracts, so he tells his Z-Stacks to go out and find some. Zorran and Zug trick Big Mac and Sunshine into thinking the others are in trouble so the Star Tugs would give their jobs to the Z-Stacks.

Later out in the estuary, a storm tosses Lillie Lightship, causing her last oil drum to go overboard. A freighter who was looking for Lillie's light crashes into the rocks and gets stuck. Answering a distress signal, Zug finds Lillie and the crashed freighter and hurries to find help, but when asking Zorran for help, he thinks Zug is trying to trick him. However, he finds Warrior and asks him for help even though he is not sure if he could trust him. The two find the freighter and pull her into port so she could be docked and later taken to Lucky's Yard. Everyone cheers for the two and Zorran gets splashed by Warrior.
