Sea Survival, 50s-style

Things Magazine was kind enough to post some survival manuals from the 50s, including one on Sea Survival. Key areas include having a plan of action in your dignhy, obtaining water from icebergs and fish juices, and remembering to not drink urine. You can also learn how to improvise fish hooks and learn to identify fish you shouldn’t eat – “good flesh should be firm and not slimy.”
