This presented an interesting challenge: Would I be able to find a “dig” in Florida? With a firm grasp on the 2 accessories listed above and an online search tool, I managed to find a sale that fit the description of my desire. You can see by the pictures that this was a true dig in a tropical paradise. Both inside and outside the house were many potential purchases.
After digging for about an hour, I finally found the story I was looking for: 100-year-old books on Steamship regulations, navigation, and medicine at sea. Though warped and water damaged, I began to read about the procedures for drunkenness, cures for hanging and numerous other odd things that can and do occur at sea.
A brief disclaimer: You may notice that the posts linked to this story are a few years old, I decided to rewrite the original Patch story which is no longer accessible.
