My Father knew all the top brass and would kinda get the inside scoop on auctions on Treasure Island. Then strapped with cash would go bid on items. Like 6 engines, 4 of which he'd he'd get running. Sell. And fish for a year. One time he got all these lifeboats. Serious equipment for a song. They had these pins you pulled and zap, they inflated. I remember cause Dad and his friends thought it a be a good idea to inflate them in the living room and knocked a window out.

Swear to the Lord.
Another time there were to live grenades in a box.
We took them to the fire department on 45th or 4th
And I remember Pa telling me later
They were live.

Saw my first solar lighter in those boxes.
