Ah, the white, succulent meat oozing hot, golden butter
with a bottle of light and dry white wine chilled to
perfection! As the last brilliant rays of Sunday summer
sunlight sparkle on the crystal surface of the sea, you feel
the warmth of the wine and the copper flush from the sun
on your skin. The "drought" is over. Lobster season is
here, and with it comes the sun, the warm sea, and the
harvest of sensual fruits the hedonist in each of us
Lobstering in the sub-tropical waters of the North-
Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico is not only
big business to commercial interests, it is perhaps the
most gastronomically pleasing hunt a sportsman can
enjoy. The season opens officially every year on July 26
and closes on March 31. But written into Florida law are
sport diver's days, which occur a week before the
commercial lobsterman set their traps and crew members
grab their bully nets. The 20th and 21st of July are set
aside for sportsmen their special days to catch the
Elorida-spinylobster (Panulirus argus).
The laws pertaining to lobstering were created to
protect the species and the industry from violators who
might deplete the population and over-exploit a vital
source of food, enjoyment and income. Here is a brief
synopsis of these regulations:
*Carapace (head and body) must exceed 3 inches.
*Tail not less than 51/2 inches.
*Lobster must remain intact at all times on or below the
*surface of the water. Specifically, the tail must not be
wrung or separated from the body.
*Spearing, hooking hand held instruments, or penetrat-
ing the lobster with knives or sharp tools is prohibited.
*No egg-bearing females may be taken.
*Limit: 24 legal size per boat.
*Sport diver's days limit is 6 legal size per person, per
day; no limit per boat; 12 total per person if overnight
Restricted area: The Biscayne National Monument is
bounded on the north by a line from Black Point straight
across the Lewis Cut (between Boca Chita Key and Sand
Key), and on the south by the Card Sound Bridge. This
entire body of water (see chart) is a juvenile nursery
where "shorts" mature, and it is now protected by the
Florida Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and patrol-
led by the Florida Marine Patrol (FMP). No lobstering of
any type is allowed in this area.
The FMP, which is grossly understaffed and in need of
vital equipment, is faced with the responsibility of patrol-
ling all of Florida's waters. Their attitude toward violators
is no nonsense, no excuse.
A serious violation, such as possession of shorts,
means the vessel could (and should) be impounded, the
operator fined, and so forth. Trap poachers are also sus-
ceptible to an angry commercial lobsterer who has just
seen you stealing from his "cash register." For a $50 fee,
the serious diver or captain can purchase a commercial
permit from the Florida DNR which removes the limit on
quantity. Sgt. McPhail of the FMP emphasizes the law,
"Make sure they're not egg-laying females, and they must
remain in a whole condition."
WHAT YOU WILL NEED
To join the hunt, you need only a few basic and
inexpensive pieces of gear. If you are skin or scuba
diving, in addition to your mask, fins and snorkel, you'll
need a good pair of gloves to protect your hands from the.
lobster's spiny body. A weight belt will help you get down
to the lobster quickly, and with less effort (2 to 4 pounds
may be all you need). A landing net, "tickle stick" lobster
gauge, and large goody bag-are essential. The landing net
can be purchased from any tackle shop, the goody bag
and lobster gauge at any dive shop. Total cost should be
around $20 for the net, bag and gauge. Getting your own
personal tickle stick will be a brief exercise in discovery
learning. Many "experts" prefer an old car antenna. The
tip of an old fishing rod is also commonly used. But tickle
sticks can be any 3- to 4-foot length of suitable material.
Even round curtain rods make suitable ticklers.
Last of all, but perhaps most important for your safety,
you will need about 50 feet of line, a 4-pound weight, and
a surface float with the diver's flag properly displayed.
Florida law requires the diver's flag be flown whenever
skin or scuba divers are in the state's waters. Boaters
should exercise extreme caution whenever they see the
familiar red flag with the white diagonal stripe. A vessel
should approach the area within 100 feet of a diver's flag
only by drifting with engines off or in neutral. Sailors
should furl their sails and also drift into the 100-foot
circle. Smart divers surface close to their flags after per-
forming a 360-degree spin just before breaking the
surface, and they never dive in areas of high boat traffic,
such as channels and through waterways.
BREEDING AND MIGRATION
During the months of July and August, the egg-bearing
females are busy depositing their eggs on the outer reefs
and deeper waters. The eggs are transported with plank-
ton movement in a post-larvae stage into the bays,
estuaries and shallower depths close to shore to mature.
Studies are being conducted to determine the patterns of
breeding and movement. A better understanding of the
Florida lobster's habits will enable conservationists and
biologists to provide us with better harvesting data.
During the months of October and November, the spiny
lobster migrates. A cruious "march" of the entire
community takes place from the deeper waters to the
shallower flats and channels. In their juvenile stage,
movement can be widespread. Shorts tagged in
Biscayne Bay have turned up as far away as Key West. At
present; the migratory pattern is not totally established,
and the complete life cycle is not fully understood.
Conservation areas, such as the Biscayne National Monu-
ment and the Everglades National Park (no lobstering is
permitted within the park boundaries), could haveimpact
on the entire Florida lobster population.
Lobster are found most often where it is reasonably
dark and some water movement exists. Night diving for
bugs is both productive and exciting. Being nocturnal,
they come out at night to scavenge for food. Their beady
little eyes glow a bright red as they literally cover the reef.
During the daylight hours, lobsters can be found hiding
in crevices, under ledges, in the safety of shipwrecks, and
under bridges. They adapt to the oddest of habitats. Old
cans and 50-gallon drums are sometimes worth a look.
You may find a bunch stacked up inside! Lobster will even
make use of a hole in the shallow flats, leaving only their
antennae protruding, to sense any predator that may
Beware: A lobster with only one antenna protruding is a
signal. The other antenna is aimed back into his hole
because something else maybe a moray eel, a stone
crab, or even another lobster is in there sharing the
space. Blindly reaching into a hole and grabbing a lobster
can be hazardous to your hands!
There are countless techniques and methods. Some
"experts" whisper enchanting Indian words to them,
insisting this makes them walk out of their holes and sub-
missively deposit themselves in your bag. Others
hypnotize them with one hand while the other hand
sneaks up from behind to put the grab on them. Lobsters
can be momentarily hypnotized by distracting their
antennae with gentle vibrations. You must be very careful
not to actually make contact with the antennae, however,
or you'll be left wriggling your fingers at a cloud of mud.
It's uncanny the way they seem to enjoy shooting from
one hole to another across the grassy flats, almost as if
they are pointing their antennae straight at you and
saying, "Come on. Just try and catch me now!" And,
inevitably, you will be lured into his game and chase him
for a bit with a hypnotic glaze in your eye!
Another method is walking the antennae. By inching
down both antennae with your fingers, ever so slowly and
gently, you can reach the carapace and grab. But be care-
ful: All Florida lobster have two sharp horns proteduing
"between their antennae that can give your hand a nasty
A lobster will gladly sacrifice its antennae to escape. If
you are lobstering for the first time, expect to catch a few
antennae. All it takes is a slight pull and they'll snap off in
pieces or whole. This leaves the lobster at a
Disadvantage, and you very frustrated.
There are ledges where dozens of lobster will be
literally stacked on top of one another waiting for the
wand of an experienced "bugman." It's important that you
move in cautiously, being careful not to alert the lobster to
your presence by sending off any vibrations to their super-
S sensitized feelers. The trick is to hold your landing net off
to the side and tickle one under its tail. Tricked into
feeling something behind it, the lobster walks out of the
hole. With a carefully directed flick of your wrist, the
lobster is guided into the waiting net; it twists in the
webbing, hooking its spines. If you move cautiously, you
can make all of the others walk out and into the net; each
is carefully measured and transferred to the bag,
When you have your limit, unhook the catch bag from
your belt and carry it back in your hand. If you allow it to
drag against you leg as you swim, your carelessness wil
be rewarded by scratches from the spines sticking
through the little holes. Back on board, store the lobsters
in a wet burlap sack. Keep them cool and wet and they
will live as long as two days.
You can test their freshness by picking them up. If the
tail curls under, they're fresh and alive. If they die, they
must be eaten immediately, and cannot be frozen.
Lobster, like most seafood, begins to spoil as soon as it
dies. The digestive acids of the stomach and intestines
seep into the body and tail meat and soon cause it to
spoil. They can also be kept alive overnight in the
refrigerator,, not the freezer. At sea, store them in a burlap
sack and periodically give them a dunk in the briny.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE
MARINE ADVISORY BOARD OF
FT. LAUDERDALE AND ALL
MARINE SAFETY OFFICIALS IN
THE FT. LAUDERDALE AREA
The winter season of 83-84 was very dangerous and
frustrating for small boaters, 18'-26' (particularly sail
boats) in the Ft. Lauderdale area.
Many of us are 'snow birds' who bring or keep boats in
this area; we have been effectively eliminated from these
waters by lack of wake control, especially in the area of
the Port Everglades turning basin to the jetty at Point of
Power boat owners admit that they run at full throttle in
this area, twin screw boats of deep draft, making waves
of up to 5 ft. in a confined area is deadly, especially on
weekends because of volume of traffic.
We have been asked to report them how can you?
They are coming at you at 25 Knots, all you can do is
'hang on and pray' in a small boat, leave alone record
Why? 'Pleasure Craft' are just that for the pleasure of
all Do we need a tragedy to stimulate action on the part of
the Authorities? We implore you to take steps to make
and keep these waters safe for all craft as well as protect
Would you kindly implement the same ordinance that
prevails in the area of Bahia Mar as to wake posted. If it
would be possible, include a complete set of rules and reg-
ulations for the use of local waterways when annual
permits are renewed.
If people need the thrill of high speed and power, they
have the Atlantic Ocean as a playground to enjoy to their
hearts' content where they endanger no one.

I read with interest the "Ask Big Al" column in the June
15-July 15, 1984 edition. Big Al did an admirable job in
explain ing why "marine" equipment and hardware are,
indeed, more expensive than automotive gear. However,
-in my opinion, I don't think Big Al should use his column to
recommend or advertise for any particular marine equip-
ment outlet, which he, in fact, did. Save advertising for
your classified and display sections.
I might add that Big Al should have stated that when a
boater considers where to buy products, he or she should
consider not only price and guarantee, but what follow-up
service will be provided from that outlet. You usually get
what you pay for, in the long run.

Was delighted to pick up your Waterfront News yester-
day near my seawall. It is such a pleasure to read a bit of
newsprint today without wading through all the political
issues, ads, burglaries, crime, and etc.
What a fine job all of you are doing in presenting such
interesting news and information about the sea and the
life therein. I was raised on the water but find my lack of
knowledge about most of what it is all about is as endless
as the waves.
As a native, I am constantly teased about living so near
the beach and not using it I steadfastly refuse until it is
cleared up and I can truly relax and enjoy the clean white
beaches and sparkling wter. Ifthey can clean up the cities
like Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles of smoke, smog, and
name it, then some one with engineering know-how can
and hopefully will, come up with an idea to clean up the
beaches. Think how much in demand he or she will be!! I
would even consider a small donation of charitable
kindness in view of my profound gratefulness or better
yet, maybe the City could infuse it into the tax structure to
show that we at least get SOMETHING for some of our tax
dollars teasing of course, but it would be a benefit to

BUSINESS PLANNING SEMINAR
Designed to provide marine business owners, mana-
gers, and executives pertinent information to assist
marine businesses in decision making and planning for
the coming season, the MIASF is sponsoring a "Business
Planning and Management Seminar" on August 15, 1984,
at Bahia Mar Hotel and Yachting Center. The all day con-
ference is a must for marine business men and women
who want to improve their management skills and who
want to have the competitive edge in planning their busi-

seminars are designed for one subject such as marina
management and lemon laws. We have put together
experts to provide need-to-know type presentations in
areas such as insurance, legal, economic, trends, taxes,
budgeting/forcasting, computerization, hiring and
retaining employees, as examples. It doesn't matter

Ship 332's sponsor, the International Yachtsmen
Association, was incorporated in 1958. Since then the
IYA has granted marine scholarships to deserving young
people; helped create an artificial reef for the preservation
of marine life; made donations of food, clothing, and gifts
to local needy children; and formed a blood bank for IYA
members and their families. The IYA also provides job

UNITED STATES COAST GUARD
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary is the civilian
component of the United States Coast Guard dedicated to
In the past five years the Auxiliary has saved the lives
of 6,378 pleasure boaters, assisted over 105,000 other
boaters and saved or assisted property valued at almost
two billion dollars.
In 1983 the Auxiliary made available to the U.S. Coast
Guard 11,497 privately owned boats, 171 privately owned
aircraft and 1,282 VHF marine radio stations, all specially
equipped according to U.S. Coast Guard requirements at
the owners expense.
Locally within the 7th Coast Guard District which
covers Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Puerto Rico and
the Virgin Islands, we have 1,446 operational Auxiliary
Vessels and 19 privately owned aircraft.
Up to 110 of these boats and planes are out every
weekend, weather permitting, underway on safety patrols,
assisting boaters in distress and patrolling local regattas
and other marine events.
Auxiliarists do not get paid for their services. They are
re-imbursed only for gasoline and oil used while on patrol.
What this means to the taxpayer is an enormous sav-
ings to the Coast Guard and our nation. In our District
alone 25% of all Coast Guard Search & Rescue cases
were handled by the Auxiliary under operational control of
the local regular Coast Guard units.
This dedication to duty and its mission to save lives is

Ft. Lauderdale, FL IS BROWARD MISSING THE
BOAT? Broward's County's greatest treasure is
evident everywhere yet lies unguarded and very
often unrecognized. The treasure consists of the
miles of coastline, waterways, rivers and lakes
that we live on, play on and, for a large part,
depend upon. The waterfronts are everyone's
business and on October 12-13, 1984 a "Marine
Charrette" will take place to do an indepth
examination of Broward's treasured waters.
A "charrette" is an intensive think-tank
session among expert representatives of diverse
groups who will meet to collect and combine
pertinent data and to identify problems and areas
of future promise. The charrette's organizers are
the Greater Ft. Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce
Marine Task Force and the Marine Industries
Association of South Florida.
The rapid growth of the county has far
exceeded any plans that would protect it's
greatest natural asset. The marine industries
recognizes the economic significance the waters
of South Florida play on the economic and social
development in Broward county. The protection
and development of the waters cannot be taken
for granted but requires careful monitoring and
coordination. Representatives of government
agencies, bankers, commercial and residential
developers, manufacturers and other experts
along with the private sector need to meet with
members of the boating and marine related fields.
It is the involvement of a total community that
will enable the assembly of information and
therefore identify potential and existing problems.
The upcoming marine charrette's goal is to
clearly identify these problems, involve
concerned parties and initiate future plans.
One of the many topics on the agenda is the
Business of Boating and the significant economic
impact it has year round. The state of Florida
ranks 2nd in the United States for number of
manufacturers for boats, boat trailers, motors,
fishing tackle and marine accessories, and has
nearly one half million boats registered. Broward
County alone has over one thousand marine
related businesses more than Dade or Palm
Beach Counties. Commercial and heavy industry
in and out of Port Everglades add even more
impact on the county's economic growth.
Other areas of discussion will include
zoning along the waterways, controversial
rentals and live-aboards. With increased popula-
tion there is, of course, the increased use of both
the roadways and waterways. Competition for
parking, right of ways, rentals and services
necessitate the need for a plan of coexistence
between land and water users.
Conservation will also be an important
topic on the agenda. Industrial pollution, artificial
reefs and the protection of Broward's wildlife is
Marine events such as beach regattas,
boat shows, fishing tournaments and a potential
Marine Stadium are on the program for future
The Charrette's goals have been set high,
the solutions are not readily available but the
Chamber of Commerce and the Marine Industries
Association know that the protection and
development along our waters require careful.
monitoring and coordination. Statistics need
updating and compiling. Involvement and
commitment from all sectors of the county are
essential because only when the problems are
identified can the community protect, provide and
promote its greatest treasure the waterfront.

by Van Snider
Is our coastal area really the Venice of America we'd
like to think it is? Has our rapid growth out-paced our
abilities to maintain such an image? With marine oriented
industry and activities at a multi-million dollar a year level,
is there still enough of this natural resource left for every-
one to use and enjoy?
Because our waterways are such a major element in
our lives, whether for business or pleasure, it is time the
issues were addressed and solutions determined say the
members of the Marine Task Force of the Fort
Lauderdale/Broward County Chamber of Commerce.
And they're doing something about it. Planned for
October 12-13 at Ft. Lauderdale City Hall, a Marine
Charrette a gathering of 150 experts and concerned
individuals who'll donate their time and expertise for an
intensive two-day "think-session".
The Marine Task Force together with the Marine Indus-
tries Association of South Florida are optimistic that their
joint efforts to hold the charrette can generate results.
"We did a similar thing in 1974 for the downtown area
of Fort Lauderdale," said William Bigoney, co-chairman for
the Marine Charrette, "and the results of the 'Centrum
Charrette' is still the bible being used for the tremendous
redevelopment we're now seeing there. We fully expect
the Marine Charrette to be equally effective."

MAZON I LOWRANCE:
AN UNDERWATER LOOK
by Bryan Brooks
In early April, the County sunk the 435 food freighter
MAZON. She was renamed the LOWRANCE after the elec-
tronics company of the same name. This company, along
with fishermen from Pompano's RODEO and Broward
County's Reef Preservation group, had worked together to
get the aged ship sunk as an artificial reef. Over a thou-
sand boats were on hand to view the sinking. Aboard the
Ventura III, a dive boat, I watched as the old girl slid
gracefully beneath the waves due East of Pompano
As a Dive Instructor, I wondered what kind of life would
begin to form on the LOWRANCE. A week later, on April
the tenth, myself, along with Captain Tony George of the
Ventura III, and another instructor, Debby Powers, were to
find out. The weather was cloudy and overcast. The
waves were only 2 to 4 feet, but this would be a deep and
challenging dive. The depth of the LOWRANCE was 210
feet in the sand. She had sunk with her bow facing north-
east, bow into the sand. Her stern was facing southwest
and rose to 130 feet.
Sure enough, Captain Tony located the LOWRANCE
with his depth recorder. The outline of his screen was
large and forbidding. What would we find on her only a
week after she had sunk? What would the current be like
in this deep water? Would we have enough air to safely
descend, see the ship and make a safe ascent? We
placed an extra tank and regulator at 10 feet in case we
needed more air to decompress with. The dive plan was
carefully made with contingency plans made for depth
and length of-time.
I entered the water with my trusty Nikonos underwater
camera to attempt to record something to take back with
me to remember. The current was swift. We had a line at-
tached to the anchor line to pull ourselves forward. Once
at the bow of Captain Tony's boat we grabbed hold of the
anchor line and slowly began our descent. The water was

air was being consumed at an extremely high rate be-
cause of the density and pressure of the surrounding
water. My time was running out. The depth gauge read
over 170 feet. Aim. Shoot. Fight the narcosis. Swimming
back to the anchor line I passed over a large open cargo
hold. Looking down into it was eerie, a large dark hold.
What was there to see? No, get back to the anchor line.
Our time in Heaven was over. If Heaven isn't like this, I'm
not going. The narcosis again. At the anchor line Captain
Tony and Debby met me. He pulled the anchor free and
quickly we drifted away from the LOWRANCE. Looking
down into the sand at 210 feet made me feel it was the
bottom of the world. We slowly began our ascent up the
anchor line leaving behind our new friend. We would be
back. We would have to come back; there is so much
more to see. As we rose higher up the line towards the
surface, the Narcosis began to slip away. What had we
seen? Life. We had seen the birth of life. An old derelict
had become the birthplace of new life in our ocean. Man
who had taken so much from the ocean was beginning to
place something back into it. The Ocean will always sur-
vive as long as Man gives it a chance. This was a great
beginning. As I hung off at 20 and 10 to safely de-
compress the nitrogen from my body, I reflected back on
the last 20 minutes. The old ship was alive with new life.

God, I hope the pictures come out. On reaching the sur-
face we began to babble like children. We were excited
about our new discovery and continued to shout back and
forth. Maybe the Narcosis hadn't gone away after all. As
Captain Tony pulled up the anchor, we slowly headed
back to Ft. Lauderdale. Each of us vowed we would
A WORD: ABOUT THE LOWRANCE-MAZON
Tthe story written about the dive on the LOWRANCE-
MAZON was undertaken by a group of Instructors and
Divemasters. The dive was extremely well thought out
and planned including extra equipment and contingency
plans. The weather was an extremely important consider-
ation. Although the story was written in a cavalier and
romantic fashion this dive is anything but easy. It is
extremely deep. It is covered fishing lines which may trap
an unsuspecting diver. The narcosis effect although
treated lightly should be taken seriously. Being close to
the Gulfstream the current is at times very strong. We
hope you enjoyed the story but please do not attempt this
dive unless you have the proper training. Even then the
danger and hazard are very real and not to be taken

Oil hydraulic systems have been used on boats for over
fifty years. In fact, the first successful application of
hydraulic drives was for rotating the gun turrents on WWI
battleships. Since WWII, the growth of the hydraulics
industry has been significant with broad usage in the
aerospace, agricultural, mobile, industrial and materials
A major reason for this growth is the advantages
offered over electrical and mechanical power
transmission systems. Hydraulic power systems can
easily provide both linear and rotary motion. Speed and
power can be easily controlled and components have an
excellent power to weight ratio. Systems are inherently
safe and reliable.
Though commercial and military ships have made
.extensive use of hydraulic systems, we see relatively
little usage in the recreational boating industry. Primary
usage is for steering, trim tabs, bow thrusters and
stabilizer systems. Additionally, some sailboats have
hydraulic backstays and hydraulically lifted swing keels.
Other marine applications include hydraulically driven
generators winches, windlasses and emergency bilge
pumps. A number of European designed motorsailers use
hydrostatic transmissions for propulsion. Workboats often
use hydraulic drives to allow the use of a single engine to
drive twin screws.
A major reason for using hydraulic drives in the marine
industry is the compatibility of components with the salt
water environment. Being totally enclosed and self-
lubricating, components do not require any maintenance.
Most hydraulic pumps and motors have a "B-10" bearing
life- rating of over 10,000 hours, sufficient to outlast most
vessels and engines.
The ideal time to fit hydraulic systems to a boat is at the
design stage. However, retrofit is normally quite easy. It is
common practice to replace bulky mechanical steering
systems with hydraulic steering and hydraulically driven
bow thrusters and stabilizer systems are often added to
It is common practice to combine a number of systems,
such as manual and power assisted steering systems.
Central hydraulic systems are used in some yachts,
utilizing a single engine driven pump to provide hydraulic
power to drive deck winches, a bow thruster, an
emergency bilge pump and the anchor windlass.
An interesting innovation is the "Get-home" drive, used
on single engine trawlers. In case of primary engine
failure, the generator engine can be utilized to drive a
hydraulic pump which in turn drives a hydraulic motor
attached through a belt or chain drive to rotate the
propeller shaft, thus allowing the vessel to reach a port for
Normally, the only maintenance required in any
hydraulic system is to be sure the system has an ample
supply of oil. Most systems have an oil reservoir with a
sight gauge (or indicator light). If the oil level should drop,

it will be due to a leak in the system. The leak must be
found and repaired and the lost oil replaced. Systems use
engine oil, ATF transmission oil or special hydraulic oils. A
supply of compatible oil should be carried on board,
however, in case of an emergency, any good quality oil
can be substituted.
Additionally, most hydraulic systems have a filter to
remove any contaminants in the oil. As with an engine oil
filter, this filter should be replaced or cleaned on a periodic
basis. The general appearance of the oil will normally
indicate if there is a problem in the system. If the oil
becomes foamy, there is probably an air leak on the

First let me apologize to all the great marine stores and
outlets in Broward County and the catalogs shipped out
nationwide. I mentioned one meant all of them for parts
I received many questions about hanging your boat
from davits. Unless your lifting ring is bolted through to
your keel at the bow and back plated you can have sepa-
ration or cracking. Your stern rings also should have back
plates to take off the strain and the drain plug left open.
Leaving your boat supported by both ends for any length
of time will eventually distort the hull, and windows and
doors will not close properly plus other ills.
My boat will turn over and over and not start. Yet, I
have fuel in my carburetor, spark at my plugs, and
compression in all my cylinders. Put in new plugs, points
and condenser, then a new coil. If I don't catch it
immediately: NO GO. Help!
First, I would put in a new resistor unit for a start. If you
still have trouble, I would run a hot line from the battery,
or solinoid, direct to the coil plus-lead (if boat is negatively
ground). That will give you full voltage to the coil. If that

Can't get my boat up on plane, faster I go, the more it
digs in. Will planes help or will I waste my money?
Trim tabs will help, but there are other things to check
first. A boat loaded with fuel and passengers needs lots of
power to climb on plane. Fuel tanks in the rear of a boat,
water tanks full of water also hold a boat down. Try your
boat with tanks lo), on fuel and no water and try putting
two passengers (heavy weights) in the bow and redis-
tribute your loai .Lots of times two saddle tanks for fuel
and water tanks in the bow will do the trick. Trim planes
can't do it all.

ITALIAN MARINE DIESEL'S
LIGHT WEIGHT/HIGH HORSEPOWER
by Al Reiser
Marine diesel engines are present-
ly becoming the way to go. In today's
highly competitive marine motor market
diesel engines are now numerous in
size and output. There are several
marine diesel engines which vary in
size; such as, one cylinder engines
for sailboats and go up to 12 cylin-
ders for large ocean vessels.
There are many different countries
that manufacture these power plants.
The United States for numerous years
had dominated this marine market;
Cummings, Caterpillar and GMG are a
few. They have powered sailboats, com-
mercial vessels and military as well.
Within the last decade other countries
have accelerated their technology and
marketing. Volvo is one such company
that has rapidly rapidly come into
this market. Japan is also attempting
to do the same, if not better.
I have recently been introduced to
yet another manufacturer, the Italian
based company producing Ducati engines,
that has gone one step beyond. They
have developed a marine diesel, which
is lightweight with a high output of
horsepower with fuel economy use.
Their marine line varies from single
cylinder, 10.7 HP for sailboats or
small boats to 12 cylinder diesels,
1600 HP. They also have a 55 Amp al-
ternator 12 Volt system with cushion-
ed motor mounts for less vibration.
I believe that the Italian technol-
ogy and craftsmanship is high quality.
I am pleased to see the country
that has produced the Ferrari car is
now producing a fine marine diesel.
Their concept is basic: less weight
and more horsepower. That can be cri-
tical in marine application.
There are features in many diesel
engines for the consumer who is con-
templating purchasing this type of
engine. It would be wise to get as
many facts and make a comparison of
the features, as well as the price.
The timing for the consumer is great,
for this market is highly competitive.
Marine diesels are the way to go
because of their longevity and safety
factor. Diesel fuel is safer than gas-
oline due to a higher flash point. I
predict marine diesels to be soon as
numerous as marine gasoline engines

BOAT FIRES EXAMINATION
Some kids have always wanted to be a fireman. Now
here's your chance skipper. On board you are the fire
chief. A fire must be attacked as soon as it starts.
Have an always-ready plan. Your crew and guests
should be told what they are to do. Also teach them how
to do it... such as using a fire extinguisher, putting on life
jackets, or using distress signals.
Federal requirements specify the fire equipment for
boats, some states have their own regulations, and the
USCGAUX will not award a Courtesy Marine Examination
decal for any boat (with very minor exception) unless
there is an extinguisher. The type, size and number of
required extinguishers depends on the particular boat.
A Class B extinguisher is mandatory since fuel fires are
this Class. Electrical fires are Class C. Thus the portable
(hand-held) boat extinguisher must be UL 5 BC or higher
rating. Never use water on such fires. All marine extin-
guishers must be marked showing USCG or Underwriters
A B-1 size extinguisher is the minimum for boats of 25
feet or less length. 26 feet and over require a B-II, which
contains 10 pounds dry chemical. Certain boat types, or
greater length, necessitate additional protection.
The dry chemical is under pressure. It makes a mess
and destroys electrical things. But enough, in the right
place, puts the fire out. The length of discharge on a B-1 is
often shorter than 8 seconds and you have to direct every
second at the base of the fire (not at the flames). The B-ll
lasts longer, so the margin of safety is significant for a
small additional cost.
Engine spaces may also be protected by 002 (carbon
dioxide) as long as there is no breeze or ventilation to
dissipate the fumes, however these are lethal. Halon is
good for engine compartments properly mounted in a
fixed position and should snuff out the fire (but it might
start again). Halon leaves no messy residue and is safer
for persons. For diesel fuel you must use Halon 1301.
Even when there is a fixed fire fighting system you must
have a portable extinguisher.
Fire extinguishers are of no use unless in condition:
1. all should have an apnual inspection (certain types
must be tagged by a qualified specialist).
2. the pressure gauge must show a full charge (check
that plastic cover on dial is not blocking the gauge).
3. never test by squirting. One squirt produces a leaker
and soon useless item.
4. dry chemical items may be shaken and turned end-
for-end to be sure that the contents are still loose. No
shifting or a "clunck" means deterioration.
5. extinguishers with metal nozzles and necks are pre-
ferable. Plastic fittings (such a the "0" ring holding the
gauge) dry and may split. Many such, even while "just
sitting there", have exploded with great force turning the
parts into dangerous projectiles or worse if you are
just activating them.
6. check the extinguisher horn/jet outlet and hose.
Check seams for corrosion, also side pitting, or areas
hidden by sotrage position. A rupture is likely due to high
pressure upon activation.

FUEL TANK CLEANING
Fire extinguisher location is vital (you have a few
seconds to act):
1. extinguishers must be within easy reach, one near
the skipper's hand.
2. each extinguisher must be mounted, obvious (not
hidden) and available often I have seen skippers who
did not know how to open the bracket often the
extinguisher is under a console or ledge and you have to
put your head on the deck to look for it often the
extinguisher is under a pile of something, or even almost
out of reach along a gunwhale or deck well.
3. inboards should have a B-1 in a forward cabin and a
B-11 aft. Outboards need an extinguisher near the engine
or portable fuel tanks, but away from flames.
4. more skippers are now hanging a fusible-link-heat-
activated extinguisher in the engine compartment. Some
are installing fire-retardant material around the danger
area. Measure the cubic area to be sure the instan-
taneously released gas is adequate for the volume. 70 or
100 cubic meter halons are so marked on the label. Any
manual release controls must be outside the space
5. a nozzle-size hole in the engine box/cover allows
you to use a portable without opening the compartment
(air would augment the fire).
Fire extinguisher use:
1. the stream from a hand-held jet must strike at the
base of the fire. There is usually a tendency to overshoot
or hit only the higher flame. A back-up is recommended
for this reason or in case you have a fizzle.
2. if fire is suspected in the engine compartment, or
there are backfires or strange noises there, remember
that opening it lets oxygen enter and incites explosion.
3. in the galley area avoid burnable materials; have
shut-off valves on the stove and on fuel lines. Maintain a
posted checklist to show details of detection for leaks of
liquefied petroleum gas or compressed natural gas.
Common causes of fire board:
lots of boats blow up just after refueling. Risk of fire
is great whenever starting the engine; especially so if
restarting before starting open the engine compartment
for five minutes. Ventilate it well, not just with the blower.
Sniff yourself in the engine and fuel areas. Do not rely
solely on fuel vapor detectors. There is no substitute for
frequent inspection by sight and smell. If you have been
drifting or anchored, ditto. ventilation must be by air
intake, unobstructed and continuous, just below the car-
bureator intake level. Air exhaust from the bilge but not
obstructed by bilge water. be sure the carbureator flame
arrestor is clean, and that exhaust blowers are arc-less.
Trouble lights must be protected to avoid breakage or
spark. storage batteries left uncovered are sure to be
shorted. A bright flash and battery explosion can result.
* an unconnected ground cable anywhere on board may
result in some components becoming fire hot. many
inaccessible fuel tank bottoms are found to develop pin
holes. watch the condition of fuel lines, fuel filters, and
fuel pump stress or vibration. plastic fuel containers
must be UL approved. Others generate static electricity
and may spark. fire due to lightning is not covered in

THE GRAPEVINE PUB
309 N. New River Dr. E.
R. Lauderdale, FL
There are approximately 2,400 restaurants in Ft. Lau-
derdale, but I would venture to say that not one of them is
anything like the GRAPEVINE PUB. It is truly unique.
Owner, Dr. S. J. Wilson's hobby is raising Orchids and
many of them are on display for the patrons of the PUB to
enjoy. The day we were there many of the Orchid plants
were in bloom and it was delightful to sit on the patio,
have lunch, listen to the sound of tinkling wind chimes
and admire the lovely Orchids.
We sampled the Seafood Salad and found it to be quite
good. There is a selection of about ten different meat, sea-
food and fruit salads and each is freshly and colorfully
presented. We especially delighted in the Cheese Soup,
which-is one item you must order and is probably the best
item on the menu.
The evening fare offers shrimp cooked in beer, sea
scallops poached in wine, fresh stone crabs and various
bar-b-que dishes. They are in the process of building an
outdoor grill in the patio area to cook up fresh-off-the-grill
ribs and such. Additionally, soon to be completed is a
wine and beer bar in the lower patio area.
The hostess, Laura, a lovely woman with a decided
southern accent, took pleasure in showing me the four
rooms upstairs which are suitable for parties of 10 to 25
people. We were quite surprised to find such lovely rest-
aurant accommodations and unusual decor in the upstairs
portion of the PUB. The outside of the Restuarant is quite
deceiving and one would never expect to find such
delightful rooms with a collection of art and furniture
which obviously are quite old and valuable.
After lunch we sampled the Cheese Cake and enjoyed
the crunchy cocoanut crust and strawberry topping.
Additional dessert selections such as Sherry Cobbler,
Blackberry Surprise and an item called "Sweet Green
Thing", which is Green Ginger Liqueur over Ice Cream,
looked very tempting. There is also a selection of various
aperitifes which are quite interesting. To sum it all up, I
would definitely return to the GRAPEVINE PUB and can, in
all good consciousness, advise you that a delightful
experience awaits you. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are
