Flotsam is found in the Ocean, and consists of floating debris from a shipwreck. Flotsam can be snagged using a Fishing Rod, and will yield Boards, Logs, Cut Grass, Rope, Twigs, and various new Trinkets such as: a Soaked Candle, an Old Boot, a Sextant, a Toy Boat or a Sea Worther. These trinkets can be given to the Pig King in exchange for Gold Nuggets, or traded with Wolly.

Flotsam can be found in both Sandbox Mode and Adventure Mode.

Chances for obtaining each of the possible loots is as follows:
