      About this St. Augustine, Florida tour

      You don't put together the world's largest collection of pirate plunder on a whim. The Pirate and Treasure Museum represents the lifetime passion of Pat Croce: one-time president of the Philadelphia 76ers, motivational speaker, author, Success Magazine cover boy, and, according to his granddaughter, a pirate himself.

      How deep is Croce's passion? About as deep as the 400-year-old wrecks of Sir Francis Drake's Elizabeth and Delight, discovered off Panama in 2011 by an expedition that he financed and served on. He traveled the world in search of rare pirate plunder and filled his museum with what he found, including the only authenticated pirate treasure chest and Capt. Kidd's journal from his final voyage. He also made sure that the museum is no staid, look-but-don't-touch experience. It's hands-on, swashbuckling fun.

      This isn't a hobby to Croce. He says the swashbuckling spirit is the secret to his self-made success. (He's worth an estimated $300 million.) He's written five self-help books that set out his bold buccaneer vision, and six authoritative volumes about piracy and pirates. (Plus My Pop Pop Is a Pirate, in which his granddaughter tries to convince her classmates that he really is a pirate.)

      So make sure the Pirate and Treasure Museum is on your St. Augustine agenda. It's not just good family fun. It's the key to a life strategy that, for Croce, paid off in serious plunder.

      Dress for duress

      Edward Teach cultivated a look that struck fear in his enemies. He wore knee-high boots, three bandoliers, and a hat adorned with lit matches. His thick black beard was "of an extravagant Length; as to Breadth, it came up to his Eyes; he was accustomed to twist it with Ribbons." Blackbeard died at 38 fighting the Royal Navy, shot five times and cut 20 more; the Brits hung his head from the bow and threw the body in the water.
