BROWARD COUNTY ARTIFICIAL
REEF PROGRAM
by Steve Summerville
The Environmental Quality Control Board, Erosion
Prevention District is the coordinator for the Artificial Reef
Program in Broward County. Artificial reefs have proven to
be extremely beneficial to the environment and economy
of Broward County. Environmentally, artificial reefs
increase the overall biomass or productivity of the
offshore environment. This occurs because the artificial
reef improves habitat by providing nesting and predation
areas, substrate for the deposition of eggs and nursery


areas for many types of marine animals.This, in turn, will
attract and increase the number of juvenile fish, baitfish
and gamefish. Artificial reefs also provide stable substrate
for algae, corals, and sponges and protective cover for
crabs, lobster and other crustaceans.
Artificial reefs also provide recreational benefits to the
residents and visitors of Broward County. These reefs
provide enhanced sportfishing, diving and tourism
opportunities. This in turn benefits all aspects of the
community by stimulating the economy of the area.
Refer to the reef location chart and range drawings for
artificial reef locations offshore of Broward County. As
more reefs are constructed, additional range drawings will
be made available. To find an artificial reef, carefully line


August 15-September 15, 1984

up the key landmarks on shore, as shown in each
drawing. They will put you over the artificial reef. While
using an artificial reef, it is urged that conservation and
courtesy be practiced, so that the reef can be of benefit to
others.
The construction of artificial reefs has been a joint effort
between government agencies, corporations, foundations,
and individuals. Tax deductible donations of material,
services, and especially transportation costs have been
the key to the success of the Artificial Reef Program.
Donations to the Artificial Reef Program are always
welcome and these donations will help to make Broward
County a better place to live, work and visit.

To the Editor:
Life at our City Docks can be a lesson in how to spend
the most and get the least in the local marine scene.
While the city has the potential for a thriving Marina
business competing with the best, they settle for charging
the high rates and forget about the services that would
make people stay.
We pay more for a City dockspace than all the
combined costs of owning our Fort Lauderdale home,
including the mortgage. And now we no longer wonder
why the City. Docks are usually half empty.
For our money we get a couple of cleats to tie our
docklines to but the neighborhood kids delight in untying
them at most inconvenient times. We also are supplied
with water but a good hose doesn't last through the
night. I've heard we are protected by police patrols. But a
recent call for help against intruders took an hour and a
half for response.
Of course we do have the fun of watching all the boats
go by, and the one or two out of ten who think the only
way down river is in front of a three foot wake add a
certain color to the scene. Indeed, some could color the
cheeks of any trucker with the profanity they spew forth
when asked to slow down.
We do have good street lighting and are frequently
provided with live entertainment under the lights x-rated
of course.
The dockmaster'is very nice and lends a sympathetic
ear as we repair the damage caused by inconsiderate
boaters or assess our losses in pilfered gear and sleepless
nights from vagrants and fishermen who don't know the
meaning of private property. But, without the co-operation
of local police, even a good dockmaster can do little to
make life here even marginally worth the cost.
So, is it any wonder private dock owners can rent any
time they want while the city "marina" sits half empty.

Dear Editor:
In your. June 15 July 15, 1984 issue, Marsha Rose
raved about the Ocean Sound Band. From personal
experience, I couldn't disagree with her more. Last
December this band was the lead act for Gato Barbieri in
Miami. We anticipated an evening of great jazz. Instead
we had the misfortune to be bombarded by a concoction
of amateur musicians who sounded like they had never
played together before. I've heard cat fights with more
harmony and flow. Happy hour at Bootleggers is like
listening to Perry Como when compared to the tripe we
heard that evening. At first I thought maybe I was alone in
my opinion. But, after asking those seated nearby, the
overwhelming feeling was that the Ocean Sound Band
was suited only for herding wild animals across the
Serengheti, or for imitating the sounds of a hurricane.
It has been eight months and maybe they've improved!
They could not get any worse.
Ed Wiser
EDITOR'S NOTE: Though I missed the Miami concert in
question, I suggest that Mr. Wiser (who is a good friend of
the Waterfront News) sit down and listen to
Ocean Sound Band's latest album that Marsha reviewed,
Music for Planets, People and Washing Machines.

To the Editor:

For the sake of accuracy, we, the Committee of South
Broward Concerned Citizens, offer these statements:
The last meeting of the South Broward Concerned
Citizens, on July 10, was attended by approximately 400
people, the majority of whom were not residents of
Lauderdale Isles. Hereafter, the South Broward Concerned
Citizens will be registered and incorporated as, "The
Coalition of Concerned Citizens of South Broward" to
administer funds already collected and any future
contributions made to fight a mass burning incinerator and
ash dump in South Broward. These contributions are tax
exempt and checks should be made out to "C.C.C. of So.
Broward".
We do not want an incinerator and ash dump built
anywhere in Broward County. There are alternatives in
composting and true resource recovery systems that do
not include mass burning.
We feel the Commissioners are close minded in not
honestly appraising other systems. They have stated
there are no alternative systems large enough to interest
them. So what makes bigger better? There have been
more mass burning incinerators closed down in the last 5
years than are being'built, all because of pollution, dioxins,
specifically.
The Coalition of Concerned Citizens of South Broward is
anxious about the long range effect of the polluted ash
escaping the plastic liners and being distributed into the
aquifer. We already have one ash dump on 31st Avenue
that will require many millions to contain the
contaminates. It stands over our heads as the Sword of
Damocles. Must all of our drinking water be brought in
from the Carolinas and Arkansas?
The effect of long range absorption of pollutants by the
citizens and their children emitted by the mass burning of
all trash and garbage is of great concern. The
Commissioners have not demonstrated the engineering
ability to do any more than scrub the fly ash. The dioxins
plus other pollutants will still be present in the fumes
emitted.
One truck or 900, full of garbage waiting in line to dump
at the incinerator will only increase the pollution at the
most polluted intersection in Broward County, St. Rd. 7
and St. Rd. 84. With the increased number of airplanes
expected at the expanded Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood
International Airport and the application by Florida Power
and Light Co. to burn higher sulfur fuel, where do we stop
before we choke to death? All this plus a mass burning
incinerator is ludicrous.
The Broward County Commissioners should be removed
from office for their wanton destructive plans for the
endangered wetlands and the flora and fauna of Ann Kolb
Park.

Dear Editor:

Thank you for your interest in the NF cause. (See
"Sailboat Only Fishing Tourney Planned", page 7, July 15
August 15, 1984, Waterfront News.)
I think that a stimulation of public interest is the first
step to achieve our ultimate goals to find some way to
control the horrible symptoms of NF for someone already
diagnosed, and of course, to avoid risking having a baby
with NF. (NF is short for Neurofibromatosis or
Elephantman's Disease.)
One of my biggest frustrations is the fact that many
children are normal right now, but are going to start to
change at around nine years of age. Their parents are told
that there is nothing that they can do except to hope that
the case will be a mild one. After seeing many adults in
the south Florida area, I haven't seen nearly enough of the
"mild" cases as I thought that I might. I am continually
reminded that symptoms can be life threatening, even
grotesque. Medical care is a nightmare lack of a
comprehensive facility (there are 5 NF clinics in the U.S.,

Dear Waterfront News:

We very much enjoyed reading our first issue of
Waterfront News and especially wanted to comment on
the well written and most informative article by Sam Rich
on the lobster season.
We became aware of your publication at the Miami
Summer Boat Show. Good luck with your continued
success.

Sincerely,
Mr. and Mrs. J. David Curry, Sr.


Dear Editor

The South Broward Citizens for a Better Environment
take exception to published comments made by Broward
County Commissioners that we are just now complaining
about the mass burning incinerator and ash dump to be
located at St. Rd. 7 and St. Rd. 84. These blantant lies are
reprehensible. Various citizens and organizations have,
over the last two years been present at Commission
meetings to voice their objections to the plans of the
Commissioners but have not always been permitted to
speak. Ed Buchser, a retired airline pilot, was interviewed
by Channel 4 on several occasions starting 6 April 1983.
He expressed his concern for air safety. The interviews
included fly overs, on sight and his appearance at the
Commission meetings. A pilot's association also
expressed their concern for air safety and pointed out to
the Commissioners the St. Rd. 7 and St. Rd. 84 site was
the worst possible choice of the five available at the time.
Alternate Resource Recovery systems were presented
to the County Commissioners at least 20 months ago,
identical to the proposal recently presented to the
Hollywood City Commission. It could have been
operational in Broward County for the last 6 months at no
cost to the County. Now we are faced with health hazards
and a staggering 590 million dollar debt.
On 6 April 1984, the United States Environmental
Protection Agency approved the Permit Application Nos.
83B-3304 and 83B-3305 which included Mitigation Plans.
From that approval "All mitigation work must be
completed prior to the commencement of any landfill
operation." The Mitigation Plan proposed by the
Commission is to create small areas of wetlands at the
incinerator site, Tree Tops Park and the Everglades
Restoration area. It took Mother Nature 10,000 years to
develop the wetlands, the Commissioners don't have that
long!

EDITOR'S NOTE: Broward County has agreed to replace
138 acres of wetland lost to the incinerator and adjoining
landfill planned for on the south fork of New River by
creating 153 acres of new swamps and marshland around
the proposed site and a tract on the north bank of the
South New River Canal east of the U.S. 27 bridge and
south of Southwest 36 Street. A portion of the canal tract
is owned by developer Peter Jensen through a corporation
he directs. Mr. Jensen also owns property down-canal on
the south bank in Hacienda Village, where he plans to
build a marina (opposite Lauderdale Isles). Construction of
the proposed Interstate 595 spur to Port Everglades from
1-95 and 1-75 will also be impacting this area of Broward
County.


4 are in the N.E., one in Texas).
Since NF is so variable, and the medical community
simply doesn't know how widespread NF is, many cases
are not diagnosed properly, or at all. Statistics can't be
accurate. At least 1,000 babies a year over 100,000
Americans are currently affected. We have no Jerry
Lewis (NF is at least twice as common as muscular
dystrophy but have you ever heard of it???) Why not! Is
it a disorder kept in the closet?
Thanks for listening. You could provide a great boost to
lots of kids who don't have a chance right now.

Dear John:
I have just read Issues 4 and 5 of Volume 1 of
Waterfront News. Like Mrs. Jane Beach, it is indeed a
pleasure to find a publication devoted to the positive
aspects of the water... but I am also impressed with the
classic responses she verbalizes in her letter published in
the July-August Editors Mailbag.
Mrs. Beach loves the fact that crime and political issues
are not mentioned, and also refuses to use the beach until
it is cleared up. I believe that she is an excellent candidate
for a "STROLL ON THE STRIP WITH F.L.I.P.". As the old
saying goes: (who said it?) "If an individual is not part of
the solution, then that individual is a part of the
problem." Politics, crime and the unattractive problems
that make us all want to run away from the beach must
become thoroughly understood by all the people who love
the water, beach and Fort Lauderdale if we are going to
turn the tide and return the beach and water to the
sparkling, clean restful area that many of us desire.


Sincerely,
Marolyn Cowart, M.D.


EDITOR'S NOTE: F.L.I.P. (stands for: Fort Lauderdale
Informed Parents) an offshoot of Nancy Reagan's pet
project, Chemical People was formed in the fall of 1983
to deal with Junior and Senior High School drug abuse
problems. F.L.I.P.'s mission, as the name implies, is to
inform parents about the problems youth are encountering
in society. F.L.I.P. members are strolling beach scenes
around Las Olas and A1A on Friday evenings becoming
familiar with a sub-culture so attractive to many of their
children.

FORT LAUDERDALE CITY
PLANNING AND ZONING BOARD
TO CONSIDER BAHIA MAR
RENOVATIONS AND
COMMERCIALIZATION OF
BIRCH/LAS OLAS CITY DOCKS
The Planning and Zoring Board of Fort Lauderdale will
be reconsidering Bahia Mar Hotel and Yacht Club's
request to build a $35 million hotel, and fill in and
reconfigure dockage in the yachting center's north basin,
at the P&Z board next public '-aring slated for 7:30 p.m.,
Wednesday, September 19th at City Hall.
Residents living near Bahia Mar and some in the local
marine trades argue the project would tarnish Fort
Lauderdale's "Venice of America" image and create
traffic jams along Al A. Bahia Mar wants to build a 443
room, 14 story hotel, restaurant and parking garage. To
accommodate this new structure 15 to 20 yacht slips
woud be replaced with smaller slips; the number of slips
would remain the same.
A few blocks north of Bahia Mar along the Intracoastal
Waterway are the Birch/Las Olas City Docks. With 38
slips for rent, the facility averaged less than five renters
daily over the year. Jack Horner, the city supervisor of
marine facilities, suggests that even during the height of
the season, one will normally find fewer than 12 boats
tied up at these municipal docks straddling the east
embankment of the Las Olas Bridge over the I.C.W.
The City is considering to allow commercial charter
boats like the Jungle Queen to dock at a remodeled
Birch/Las Olas facility. The present pier structures would
have to be altered to accommodate these larger vessels,
according to Mr. Horner. However, two cruise lines, North
American Cruise Lines and Star Line, have already
expressed to Horner and the city commissioners their
serious interest in docking their 130' and 162' leisure day
cruise vessels there, catering to tourists and evening
dining locals. These firms would be required to pay for any
and all expenses for alterations to the city facilities.
At the July 17th meeting Fort Lauderdale City Com-
missioners voted to air the subject with the public at the
7:30 p.m. meeting of the Planning and Zoning Board
September 19th.

MARINE CHARRETTE MAY GET
STATE FUNDING
Sponsors of Fort Lauderdale's upcoming Marine
Charrette have gotten preliminary approval for a request
from the State of Florida to fund the gathering at Fort
Lauderdale City Hall of 150 waterfront experts,
businessmen and concerned community citizens.
Charrette participants will donate their time and expertise
for an intensive two-day "think-session" examining the
waterfront, it's issues, problems, needs and solutions.
According to Hank Voigt, one of the leading planners
behind the Marine Charrette, the Fort Lauderdale City
Manager, Connie Hoffman, will request to the Broward
County Commission that the county allocate $5,000 of
State Boating monies to pay for the two-day summit
meeting of the waterfront community.

NEW RIVER RAFT RACE
SEPTEMBER 30th
KISS Radio (WKOS-Miami/Ft. Lauderdale) and the Ft.
Lauderdale Jaycees present the 7th Annual New River
Raft Race in Ft. Lauderdale on Sunday, September 30 at
8:30 a.m. Proceeds from the race benefit the American
Diabetes Foundation.
Last year an estimated 125,000 spectators lined the
banks of the New River to watch the event. The raft race
begins at the 7th Avenue boat ramp, continues Eastward
on a winding course down the river to a turn around point
just before the Intracoastal waterway. The rafts then
return up-river to the finish at the 7th Avenue bridge.
All kinds of rafts compete for the prizes. They range
from spectacular commercial entries to solitary inner
tubes. Hundreds of rafts are expected to roll down the
river this year.
There are some fine viewing areas along the race route.
These include Smokers Park, Historial Park, and Cooley
Hammock Park.
KISS Radio will be hosting the awards ceremony after
the race in Smokers Park (next to the courthouse). There
will be live entertainment, games, prizes, food, and family
fun for everyone.
Entry forms are available by calling the Ft. Lauderdale
Jaycees at 791-0202 or KISS Radio 431-6200.

FT. LAUDERDALE CONSIDERING
RESTRICTED BEACH PARKING
ALONG Al A
by
M. G. Swift
A parking prohibition along A1A at the beach was
proposed to the Fort Lauderdale City Commission at it's
July 17 conference meeting. The commission's Beach
Advisory Board reported to the commissioners that the
steering committee of the Beach Symposium recom-
mended restricting beach parking from 10 p.m. 5 a.m.
They feel that the use of beachfront parking along A1A
late at night is an invitation to certain elements of the
area's human society to: "hang out" along "the Strip";
take part in various activities involving drugs and alcohol,
sex, and the general corruption of area minors; cause
severe traffic flow and public nuisance problems (rape,
robbery and murder); and kick nasty sand into the city
fathers' image of the beach.
Most of the problems along the strip and beach are
caused by "locals" (young people mostly from Dade,
Broward and Palm Beach Counties), not the legends of
college students and sailors who also frequent the bars,
shops, and beach, according to beach businessmen.
Police sources report that only 20% of all beach arrests
involve college students. By restricting late night parking -
the reasoning goes A1A will cease to be a cruising
ground and reviewing stand for high school kids and
runaways on the make, and outlaws cashing in on
lucrative black markets for their many: goods and
services. Attorney Bill Leonard, speaking for a group of
beachfront businessmen, suggested that his clients want
more police and less parking along A1A.
The City Commission will hold a public hearing
Wednesday, September 5th at 5 p.m. at City Hall on the
topic of such a parking restriction on Fort Lauderdale's
beach. The Hearing will immediately follow budget
proceedings by the commissioners.

THE ANNUAL PLANTATION
YACHT HARBOR DOLPHIN
TOURNAMENT IN REVIEW
by
Bill Rhodes
Sixty-nine anglers on sixty-two boats enjoyed fabulous
fishing, fellowship and great food over the weekend of
June 23 and 24th.
Friday evening was the kickoff party with plenty of
refreshments, great fish stories and the usual good
advice. Tournament rules were discussed along with
answers to various questions concerning the contest.
Many of the anglers stayed at the Plantation Yacht Harbor
taking advantage of the large marina and full recreational
facilities. After the kickoff party, a delicious Texas style
buffet was waiting for us in the main dining room. One had
to be careful not to over eat so to be in fine tune for lines
in the water early Saturday morning.
The weather was perfect and many dolphin were
caught by the end of the first day's fishing. It was amazing
the number of ten to twenty-five pound fish that were
brought in. A 37 pound dolphin brought in by Rick Garrett
aboard "Tranquilizer" was the early leader through
Saturday. An unbelievable seafood buffet was served at
the Yacht Harbor Saturday evening.


Sunday's seas became a little choppy with 15 knot
winds but the fishing remained hot. Everyone caught fish.
A 411/2 pound dolphin won the tournament caught by
Brian Leibowitz aboard "Heidi Baby". The winning Captain
was Gary Dillon. Second place went to Jerry Isaacson
(391/2 pounds) aboard "Four Joy Again" with Captain Sam
Cutler. Garrett's 37 pounder ended up third in the final
standings. Saturday's special prize went to Chris Knowles
aboard "Happy Girl III" for a 12/4 pound Wahoo. Sunday's
special prize was for Tuna caught on "Heidi Baby". The
most unusual catch was entered by "Summer Sun"; a
whopping 9 inch dolphin which attacked a ballyhoo larger
than itself. A well-deserved release was in order. An
outstanding catch award went to "Heidi Baby" for a 261/2
pound Sailfish caught while casting an artificial lure. The
vessel "Sunken Dollar" won the Hard Luck trophy for
several dilemmas, including mechanical failure. All made
it back safely and attended the awards banquet. Included
was a prime rib dinner and all the trimmings. For dessert -
Bay Bottom Pie a delightful concoction for the sweet
tooth.
A great weekend of fun and fishing was had by all. If
you're looking for a summer family fishing outing, be sure
to put this one on your list. Generally, the annual event
takes place around the third or fourth weekend in June.

Key.

LET'S GO BRIDGE FISHING
by
Bill Rhodes
A few years ago the numerous Florida Keys bridges on
the overseas highway were replaced with modern ones.
The old ones that once supported Flagler's railroad remain
today and act as "Artificial Reef Sites" as well as ideal
fishing piers. For decades marine growth has built up on
the bridge supports and are havens for many varieties of
sea life. This provides an excellent habitat for fish, large
and small and is readily accessible to the angler.
For the basic hook and sinker bottom fisherman there
are several varieties of snapper, grunt, and other
"panfish". Perhaps the most popular species year around
is the Mangrove or Grey Snapper. This aggressive little
fellow may bite on cut fish or squid, live or dead shrimp or
lures worked near the bottom. Direct encounters with the
bottom can be costly. Have plenty of extra terminal tackle
available because there are lost of rocks and seafans that
snag your line with the help of fast currents. I prefer night
fishing with live shrimp on the falling tide. On occasion,
I've seen Grey Snapper reach twelve pounds. Mutton
Snapper, Yellowtail and on rare occasion, Hog Snapper
are caught in this manner also. Some species of grouper,
including giant Jewfish, live under and around the bridge
pilings.
You'll find large schools of Barracuda lurking around
many of the Keys bridges, especially the larger ones.
Cudas are spectacular jumpers in shallow water and are a
great challenge on light tackle. Live bait, jigs, or the ever
popular tube lure in a variety of colors are good baits for
Mr. Barracuda. Take care in removing hooks from the
mouths of these toothy critters. One untimely headshake
and it's time for stitches and antibiotics!
Cero and Spanish Mackerel are very plentiful especially
during the winter months. During cool, windy, winter days,
mackerel may travel through the channels in large
schools. Live pilchards or sardines are the best baits
when available. Also strip baits and fast moving lures will
bring lightning fast strikes. Hold on! I remember back a
few years when King Mackerel would run through the
bridges eating everything in sight on their way to the
ocean. Fresh mackerel on the table is hard to beat.
Often times you'll encounter schools of large Jack_
Crevalle. These tough customers willfstrike almost any
offering and will give you a Major League tug of war on
any tackle. The elusive Permit, one of the most sought
after gamefish, feed around bridge pilings on crabs and
shrimp that float by with the tide. It is tough to fool a
Permit with an artificial under these shallow water

conditions so live bait is best. Permit are known for their
spectacular reel smoking runs. Their broad flat body being
pulled against the water causes much resistance. Often
times, Permit may be seen near bridge supports, facing
the tide waiting for a crustacean delight. The middle and
lower Keys are best.
Tarpon fishing is one of my favorites. These "Silver
Kings" feed around bridges nearly all year around.
Especially at night during the spring Tarpon are found in
great numbers. On the falling tide you'll hear them
"popping" at shrimp and baitfish while feeding close to
bridge pilings. Live bait is quite desirable but lures work
also. The gill rattling leaps are breathtaking. Tarpon over
100 pounds are caught in the channels with regularity,
especially during late Spring.


Perhaps the most desired species locally is the Snook
which inhabits these waters year around. They feed close
to ebb tide with the outgoing being the most favorable.
Live bait and lures worked deeply are desired baits. Snook
feed readily at night particularly when there is a lot of bait
moving through with the falling tide. Winter and Spring are
the best times but don't forget the closed season: January
and February also June and July. Only two fish in
possession per person is allowed.
Flats fishing in the immediate proximity of the channels
produces bonefish, jacks, barracuda, small sharks, and
snapper plus others. Depending on the water conditions,
time of year, and time of day there's something for
everyone anytime along the Overseas Highway. Try it
soon. You don't even need a boat.

TOURNAMENT


SAILBOAT FISHING
by
M. G. Swift
It was the first time this writer had gone deepsea
fishing since 1958. As a four year old tourist then, my
only memories are those of a large boat with "high
walls" that a bunch of men like my father stood beside
and cast over with the largest fishing rods I'd ever seen
before. These men kept catching fish that would have
been keepers if they had been caught in the farm ponds
back home. These fish were not bluegill and it would be
ten years before I discovered Hemingway and
understood. My papa allowed me to help him carry his
stinger of red fish back to the motel. I carried them high
and proud pretending they were my catch.
Twenty-six years later I was on Patrick O'Donnell's
27' sloop, five miles Lighthouse Point. Pat and his
brother-in-law, Jim, were laying out chum (a vile
smelling assortment of ground fish, etc.) marked by
dried pork rine. Pat and Jim had been looking in vain
for weed lines all morning; the seas had a moderate
chop. With the foul smelling chum overboard and

WATERFRONT TERMS

Waterfront is the land on the edge of a harbor
sometimes containing a wharf built of wood or stone for
ships to life alongside of to unload and/or load. When this
structure is built out over the water and is supported by
piles it is called a pier. Alongside these constructions we
find a dock which is the water area that contains the
vessels, however, most Americans consider the wharfs
and piers as docks.
To build a pier the owner must possess riparian rights
or the condition of having his property border on a body of
water where the pier is to be built.

marked by the floating pork chips, Captain Pat ordered,
"Hard allee!" The Waterfront News team
(Photographer: Greg Dellinger, Writer & Illustrator:
Karen Dothage, and this reporter) tended to the jib
sheets. Jim shepherded three trowling lines running
from rods and reels mounted to the stern rail of the
Catalina. Pat at the helm, he tacked Pelican head on
back into the chum. Chum is supposed to attract the
prey, but all we'd had so far that fine morning were a
great sail and a non-stop bull session with some
vintage Moody Blues and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young
on the FM. Not bad, not bad at all.
One of the topics for discussion was Pat's chairing
the North Broward Kiwanis' SAILBOAT FISHING
TOURNAMENT, November 10th, (bad weather date:
November 17th). The tournament is to benefit the
FLORIDA CHAPTER of the NEUROFIBROMATOSIS
FOUNDATION, (see NF Chapter Director's letter to the
editor, page two, this issue). Contact Patrick O'Donnell
at 941-4474 or 491-3490 for more information
concerning the SAILBOAT FISHING TOURNAMENT.
Having tacked repeatedly through the chum slick,
Pat swung Pelican around towards the lighthouse and
we cruised the third reef, doing some bottom fishing.
We soon landed a king fish which later yielded 12 one-
inch thick steaks and a dinner that couldn't be beat.
This writer did not go along on this trip with the
intention of doing any fighting-chair activities himself
(might mess with his objectivity). But Pat and Jim had
another agenda and handed him a rod bowed and the

GALLEY NOTES
by
Betty Metzger, R.D.


Can eating right help boaters to prevent Sea Lag?
Sea lag is that not-exactly-up-to-par feeling you
experience when it's been a long time since your feet
have been on good old terra firma. Good nutrition is eating
to maintain a healthy person in a state of nutritive
sufficiency.
You may have to do a little nutritional screening to find
out. What have you eaten in the past 24 hours? Have you
lost or gained weight? Have you been eating different or
unfamiliar foods? And at all different times? Had no
appetite at all? Under stress? Been a little seasick?
Drinking alcohol? Taking pills? Sunburned?
Sea lag then possibly could more clearly be defined as
borderline: over or undermalnutrition, dehydration, food
and drug interaction, reaction to stress or lack of
exercise.
Now we're getting somewhere.
The Basic Four Food Groups, or recommended daily
allowances (RDA's), meet all the known nutritional needs
of practically all healthy persons. "Except for calories, the
allowances are designed to afford a margin of safety
sufficiently above average physiological (body)
requirements to cover variations among most individuals
and to provide a buffer against increased needs during
common everyday stresses." (Handbook of Clincial
Dietetics.)
A fifth food group, called the Fats, Sweets, and Alcohol
Group, are used only to make the other groups taste
better, if possible, and to provide increased calories. The
foods in this group provide very few nutrients in
proportion to the number of calories they contain.
Water is also an essential nutrient. Most adults need 6
to 8 cups of fluid daily. Some of its functions are:
maintenance of body temperature; transportation medium
for all nutrients and all body substances; construction
substance for growth and repair of all body tissues; and
digestion, absorption, and excretion of nutrients.
Overmalnutrition, or too much of a good thing, may
lead to obesity.


Undermalnutrition, possibly. from seasickness, and
consequent food and fluid losses, stress or more exercise
than normal, or sunburn.and overexposure, may increase
your needs for nutrients and moisture.
Dehydration. Why does watermelon taste better in
mid-summer than in colder months? Because it satisfies
the body's need for moisture. Have you ever been so
thirsty, drank 2 glasses of water straight down, then felt
awful, and still thirsty. (As a child you could jump up and
down and hear it gurgle around in your stomach.) Try
eating high moisture foods, such as fresh fruits and
vegetables. Drink liquids slowly. Squeeze a little lemon or
lime in plain water and sip in moderation. Special attention
should be given to the needs of infants and the elderly or
persons on high protein diets, persons with vomiting and
diarrhea or fever as well as those in hot environments.
Food and drug interaction. Do you know that alcohol
and also drugs cut down on the amount of nutrients we
get from the food we eat?
Reaction to stress or lack of exercise may make you
feel depressed. So get up and do something careful
don't fall overboard.
Sea lag then may be diminished by eating proper
amounts of familiar and nutritious foods, as well as those
that are high in moisture content, and at regular intervals.
Bon voyage! Bon appetite!

MARINE TRIVIA


by Bryan Henry
The Indian Ocean is smaller than the Atlantic and Paci-
fic, yet covers an area about eight times that of the United
States.
Of the 700 islands that make up the Bahamas, only 29
are inhabited.
The Philippines consist of over 7,000 islands, with a
land sea about the size of Arizona.
There is a species of shrimp inhabiting rivers in Texas
that measures nearly two feet long.
The Portuguese man-of-war is a colony of individuals of
the same species.
Portions of the Atlantic Seaboard are sinking at a rate of
about one foot per century.
Crater Lake in Oregon, at 1,932 feet, is the deepest
lake in the United States.

MULTIMILLION DOLLAR
BOATING/FISHING BILL SIGNED
INTO LAW
by
Michael Sciulla
WASHINGTON, D. C. President Reagan has signed
into law a bill which will ensure that all of the federal
marine fuel taxes paid by those using motorboats will be
funneled into state programs benefiting both recreational
boat owners and anglers.
The new boating/sportfishing program is included in
the Deficit Reduction Act of 1984, a massive tax and
spending reduction bill. Administration and Congressional
advocates view the omnibus bill as the first part of a
"down payment" on the national debt.
Under the new Act, an estimated $75 million in fuel
taxes will be channeled into an Aquatic Resources Trust
Fund. It will provide funding for state boating safety,
education and taw enforcement, as well as fish restoration
and boating facilities projects.


Ds EXAMINATION
by
Bill Lange
Do you dress in the latest style and in a way which may
draw favorable attention? If you think this means the
Champs Elysees, Bond Street, Fifth Avenue, Madison
Avenue or Las Olas Boulevard you are aware of
fashion. But please be first aware of your life dress in
the proper life jacket.
Since flotation items for a person's safety include a
variety of types and styles it is easiest to call them
PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices).
The US Coast Guard requires that each vessel,
depending on its characteristics, have a certain number of
PFDs. To receive the Courtesy Marine Examination decal
of USCGAUX each recreational boat must have:
a) one throwable (Class IV) PFD, immediately
available.
b) one PFD for each person on board or in tow, readily
available.
c) one PFD for each berth (even if fewer persons on
board).
It is vital to have that throwable PFD "immediately"
available. This means by the skipper's hand so that the
ring, or horseshoe, or square item can be thrown to a
person on the instant. The person may reach it or the
location is at least marked.
The other PFDs should be where they can be reached
and quickly put on. A PFD is not "readily available" if it is
in an unopened original package, or is under some other
storage. To save your life the PFD might have to be
donned in a few seconds of fear. That means:
no package to open.
no straps to unwind.
the suitable PFD for the person's size.
a PFD in good condition.
a PFD which has not been squashed or supported
heavy tanks or an anchor.
Sthe PFD must have a clearly legible label.
A boat under 16 feet have a minimum of two PFDs;
Type IV ok.

GOOD NEWS FOR
SUMMER BOATING!
The Marine Industries Association of South Florida, Inc.
along with The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, the
Bahamas Tourist Office, and the Bahamas Sports & Avia-
tion Information Centre have announced this summer's
"Bahamas Boating Flings".
This "use your boat promotion" provides an opportunity
for your power boat customers to experience the enjoy-
ment of an open water crossing in their boats to Bimini
along with other boats in the accompaniment of a "lead"
boat. The first Fling starts off at Pier 66 Thursday evening,
August 16th, with a "Goombay Kick-off". Friday morning
at 0800 hours boats will rally behind the lead boat to start
their trip to Bimini. While in the Bahamas participants will
be staying at either the Bimini Big Game Club or the Bimini
Blue Water, Ltd. Boats will return on Sunday, August 19th
to Fort Lauderdale. Leading this Fling will be a yacht pro-
vided by Rex Yacht Sales, Ft. Lauderdale.
The second Fling is the following Thursday through
Sunday, August 23rd to August 26th. This Fling departs
Miamarina in Miami and is led by Richard Bertram & Co.,
of Miami.
While in Bimini boaters can plan on free time to sun,
snorkle, scuba dive, fish, and stock-up on Bimini bread.
There is a 30 boat limit on each fling and a minimum
length vessel size of 22 feet. Registration and a non-
refundable fee of $40 per boat is required. For further
information contact the MIASF Office or the Bahamas
Tourist Office, 255 Alhambra Circle, Suite 415, Coral
Gables, FL 33134. (305-442-4867).


The mandatory PFD laws of more than 30 states not
only follow the Federal laws but also refer to various
watercraft such as canoes, kayaks, swamp buggies, rafts,
catamarans, outriggers, inflatable boats, sailfish,
rowboats, etc.
A boat 16 feet or more in length must have PFDs of
Type I, 1I or III; besides the one throwable. A Type V may
sometimes be used in lieu of another wearable type.
Everybody on board must know where the PFDs are. A
good skipper orients the crew and passengers on each
trip as to location and use.
The Type of PFD indicated on the label shows suitability
for your use:
Type I: Designed to turn most unconscious persons to a
vertical, with face-up position. The buoyancy is great.
Best to have if a delayed rescue is likely. Best for heavy
persons. Be sure to have the proper size for children.
Type II: Less effective than Type I since it may not turn
all persons. Acceptable when quick rescue is likely. More
comfortable and less bulky. The buoyancy is far less.
Have proper sizes.
Type III: Not enough flotation to turn the wearer to
upright position. More comfortable since there are various
styles and fits. No support for head. Quick rescue vital.
Type V: The label shows what activity each kind is
meant to cover. Only approved for these special sports
and areas (such as water-ski or racing).
Type IV: Throwable cushion, ring or horseshoe. Not
meant to be worn. Person must somehow catch it or a line
tied to it. Best when equipped for man-overboard
situation.

FACT SHEET ON
FREE BOATING COURSE
WHAT? A free boating course given to the general
public.
WHEN? Tuesday, September 18, 1984 thru
December 18, 1984.
WHERE? New River Middle School, 3100 Riverland
Road, Ft. Lauderdale.
WHY? As a public service by the Fort Lauderdale
Power Squadron in the interest of water safety in the
Venice of America.
HOW? Using the experience gained in teaching two
million people safe boating since the United States Power
Squadrons were formed in 1914.
19841 The course is all new this year with changes
made for today's boating conditions. As just one example,
an evening is devoted to Sailing since more people are
now buying sailboats. For safety, everyone needs to know
the limitations of sailboats in manuevering. The method of
instruction is new too, with the lecture given by a
Squadron member with years of experience being
supplemented by discussion in small groups led by Group
Instructors.
COST? The course instruction and the examination
which may be taken at its conclusion are free. There is a
small charge for the Student's Manual. This Manual is
self-contained and outside references are not required.
MORE: Further information may be obtained from:
Nils H. Lou, N, Public Relations Chairman, Box 1205,
Hallandale, FL 33009, Tel. 458-5780 or Laurence Haupt,

Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33315, Tel. 522-7486.


Not all the above information has touched on the
prescribed requirements. Yet if you are sincere about
survival what else should you consider?

1. about 35% of the hundreds of boats I examined in
the last five years had the PFDs in unopened wrapping
and stored in a cuddy hole under an anchor and line or
other difficult-to-unravel stuff.
2. about 20% of the skippers had no Type IV. Did not
know it was mandatory, or forgot it at home, or thought
they could throw another type, Now, if you think that -
just take your PFD and see how well it throws. What if the
victim is about to panic? Then take a Type IV and practice
throwing it, even in the wind and when the boat is
moving.

ASK BIG AL

Question:
Dear Al,
I have Vibration whenever I speed up my boat. I idle fine
and race up o.k.; but, when I engage my prop: vibration! I
had the boat hauled lately to do the boat. Vibration set in
about a week later. Sarah

Answer:
Dear Sarah,
It is great to hear from a woman boater; I see more and
,more in my classes.
I really don't think the hauling and bottom job had any-
thing to dowith your vibration. This would have come im-
mediately if shaft or prop were damaged.
The simplest explanation is that something is wrapped
"around your shaft or propeller. It could be a palm frond,
piece of line, or plastic bag. Try backing down and un-
wrapping what it could be. You could boat into shallow
water and, using a mask, check hardware out. If all this is
too much for you, have a diver check.it out for you.

Dear Al:
Took my trawler on a trip to Islamarada and hit bottom
twice on the way down. I had a diver check my props and
pull them. He said they were corroded and soft and
needed to be replaced. The boat is two years old and
props are not cheap. What's wrong?
Joe


3. Once in awhile check the straps on your life
jackets by pulling hard. They can deteriorate enough to
break when the tie is made.
4. Why not protect your boatload by having a little fun
or a game? While Boy or Girl Scout units include this fun
in their program every year, even adults should do it. Take
various life preservers, carefully adjust and tie them on
the persons, then practice floating with them in the water
(not out of your reach). The game is for young persons.
Have four or five life jackets. Ask for volunteers from the
group, the winner to receive a special token or even just
applause. The PFDs are placed on the floor, one person to
stand at each. When given the "GO" all pick up their
jacket and put it on. As each finishes he or she steps out
of line and is examined by an instructor. The first finisher
who has the PFD properly adjusted and secured is the
winner.
5. Often in a boating situation the person ending up in
the water may be unconscious, or soon succumb to pain
or hypothermia (loss of body heat) before drowning. That
is why the "head up" PFD is the best. Survival is possible.
6. Some boaters have fancy PFDs with pockets, their
names, reflector tape, a whistle, a light, even small visual
distress signals (flares and orange dye marker to use
when an airplane is near), and shark repellent.
7. The bright orange color PFDs have been found
most detectable.
8. Do not hesitate to order all aboard to don PFDs
when you think it is wiser. Once the boat explodes or
swamps, or the person slips, it is too late.
9. Do not jump in to help a person out of the water.
That makes two to salvage. Beware spinal injury in
dragging a body aboard.
10. When possible stay with the boat; it may float
awash and is far easier to see than a head.

Dear Joe:
You have a severe case of electrolysis. Your zincs on
your shafts and rudders must have eroded months ago.
First, I would check the wiring at your dock or marina for
polarization. Then, I would check the grounds on your
boat. Also, I would check the boats anchored near me.
They may be having problems and causing your's. How
often do you haul your boat and look at your bottom and
hardware. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound
of cure.

UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY

MADE SIMPLE
by Sam Rich

EQUIPMENT

There are only two ways to take pictures underwater:
You can either use an underwater camera or house a land
camera in a watertight case. Each approach has advan-
tages and disadvantages. Make this primary and lasting
decision carefully. Decide which system will satisfy your
needs and preferences best. And, if you can't decide and
have vast fortunes to invest, buy one of each to suit
whatever occasion might arise.
Underwater cameras are designed specifically for use
underwater. With the addition of special connectors,
lenses and viewfinders most can be adapted for land use.
They will do a fairly decent job. Underwater, their main
advantages are compactness, reliability and ease of hand-
ling. They are small; easily transported and in their own


FORT LAUDERDALE'S REEF
SYSTEM IN DANGER
by
Bryan Brooks
Why should we consider putting a small liquid space
aside for consideration as an Aquatic Preserve? We in
Fort Lauderdale are used to the headlines that we make
around the world. The beaches, The strips, Spring Break,
Swimming Hall of Fame. But no one seems to know about
the life that exists off the shores of our beaches.
Those of us in the Diving Community are trying to
educate the public to what we have right here in our own
back yard. We have roughly three strips .of ledges that run
parallel to our coast. Each one gets progressively deeper
as you go further east. The first reef or ledge runs about
100 yards off shore. The second reef is another 300 yards
further east. Its ledges vary in depth, but roughly it's
about 25 to 40 feet in depth. The third reef ledge is further
out, about a mile and a half off the shores of Broward
County. Its depth averages about 45 to 80 feet in depth.
The colors and fish on these ledges are often spectacular.
I have dove all over the Caribbean and the Keys. Their
beauty and visibility are beautiful. But believe it or not the
fish life off Ft. Lauderdale in certain spots is as plentiful as
in many places I have seen in my travels.
An organization locally called Week of the Ocean has a
project to turn the ledges that run off John U Lloyd State
Park into an Aquatic Preserve. The reasons we used that
particular reef was, number one, that it fronted an area of
our coast that was already a State Park. Secondly, it had
some Pillar Coral that is considered quite rare in this area.
Thirdly, the amount of life on both the second and third
reef ledges. The first reef was pretty much dead due to
recent dredging to restore the public beaches. This
dredging, by the way, is due to happen again soon. The
county is looking into the prospect of restoring that
particular beach.
Some have considered the proposal as more
interference by government, and do not want more

element. They are also easier to pack for dive trips.
Underwater cameras are sealed and pressure-tested, and
are made of materials that can withstand knocks and
scrapes from coral and rock not to mention the effects
of corrosion from salt water. (if properly rinsed after every
use and with periodic cleaning, lubrication and replace-
ment of "0" rings).
Land cameras go below in a variety of cases and also
have attractive benefits, like through the lense metering,
viewfinders with focusing aids, sophisticated electronic
circuitry and an almost endless variety of lens combina-
tions. Materials used for housings range from aluminum to
flexible plastic bags. The more sophisticated your camera,
the greater your concern should be for the integrity of the
housing.
Most underwater photographers rely on underwater
strobes for electronic lighting, but some burn their images


Bureaucracy. Some noted Marine Biologists think that it's
not a reef at all. The ledges that run north and south along
our coast were from the last ice age when the level of the
ocean was much lower according to Marine Geologist Bill
Raymond. The temperature of the ocean got colder and
the level of water raised. In its place soft corals grew and
became abundant. The fish life is heavy along most of the
ledges. There is a smattering of stag horn and brain coral
especially along the second reef or ledge in twenty to
thirty feet of water. Another argument used by some
people resisting the Aquatic Preserve is that by identifying
that small area along John U Lloyd that it would be
overrun with divers and cause more damage. This is a
valid point. But since the ledges running further north are
just as pretty we feel the whole ledge system will be used.
Some have said that since there is only so much
government money that it should be used in the Keys and
not wasted in Ft. Lauderdale. In other words, just write
this area off as another one of Man's mistakes in Nature.
As a third generation Floridian I'm not quite ready to
become a part of south Bronx just quite yet. Anyone who
dives off this area could tell you of its beauty and the life
that is there. That's the point, life is still there, why wait
until it's gone. Forever is a long time.
The last argument used was that we must show that
this particular reef is unique. Why is it different than any
of the other ledges that run along our coast? Another good
argument. On a recent visit to the Nova Graduate School
of Oceanography located next to John U Lloyd Park we
spoke with Dr. Richard Dodge a noted Marine Geologist.
When he heard about the argument used saying that
particular Reef Ledge isn't unique, he responded by saying
that he felt the reef was unique because it fronts the only
section of coast in this area that is the way it was a
hundred years ago. That area is John U Lloyd State Park.
Further research into what exactly we have to do
legally to get the area made into a Preserve is
progressing. In the meantime think about it and give it
deep consideration. If you are a diver, see it for yourself. If
you don't know where it is, most of the local dive charter
boats could take you to it. Should we just write off the
beautiful and important ledges that run off our coast.
Those of us who have been in Ft. Lauderdale for awhile
can remember when most of the city was surrounded by
mangroves, the nursey of sea life. We let the developers
write off many of the precious mangroves. More than
anything the Aquatic Preserve serves notice that there is
life off Ft. Lauderdale and it's not on the Strip either. It
serves notice that before we take anymore action in the
name of progress that we must consider the impact on
the life that exists off our shores. We lost the mangroves,
are the reefs next? At what cost?

into celluloid with their land strobes. They too will take
the plunge when properly housed. Housing a land strobe
saves you the cost of buying a separate strobe for under-
water work, but you will have to purchase the housing
and connectors. The basic problem in setting up this type
of system is that you are trying to make a land strobe go
where it was never designed to go underwater. This
approach may lead to disaster if the strobe floods and
could possibly be very near to impossible to adapt be-
cause of incompatability. You may run into an obstacle
that can make your project an impossibility. Before trying
to adapt a land strobe for underwater use, determine the
feasibility of your plan by checking each component's
availability and synchronicity with the total system. Even
if all connectors you will need are available and
theoretically should function, you will still be stuck with a
beam angle that is inadequate for the super-wide lenses
used underwater and minimal candle power.
Buying an underwater strobe will solve the inherent pro-
blem of adapting a land strobe. Again, compatibility with
all components should be thoroughly checked out before
purchase. A strobe designed to diffuse its beam to cover a

Remember, lighting underwater is not as easily solved as
it is in air.
Buying the accessories to convert your underwater
strobe to land use is actually less expensive and more
reliable. Base your decision on your existing equipment,
your exact needs, compatibility of all components, future
potential for expansion, versatility, reliability and cost.

110 the world's first underwater camera in 110 for-
mat. Pressure tested to 150 feet, it has an internal motor
drive for continuous shooting, built-in wide-angle lens
(20mm/f4) with 40 inch minimum focus, shutter speed of
1/125 of a second, variable aperture (f4-f16) and a built-
in strobe. It's a compact and complete package priced
modestly that can capture excellent snapshots. Minolta
also makes an'economical 26mm in 110 format with a
built-in strobe, but is only pressure rated to 15 feet.
SEA & SEA also offers a neat little 35mm called the
Motor Marine 35. It comes equipped with a built-in motor
winder, variable aperture, (f2.8-fl 6) variable focus, shut-
ter speed of 1/1000 of a second and a built-in strobe. Op-
tional accessories include a 24mm wide-angle lens, a
close-up lens, a macro lens, and adapters for more power-
ful strobes.
For the-moreaadvanced photographer, NIKON manufac-
tures the Kinonos IV-A. Considered by many professionals
to be the state-of-the-art in underwater cameras, the
Nikonos IV-A accepts a full range of interchangeable
lenses, (15mm-80mm) connectors for most strobes,
close-up kits, extension tubes, filters and throught-the-
lens metering with an automatic exposure system. His-
torically, a Nikonos camera has been a standard item for
the professional who may be shooting above water or in
possibly adverse weather conditions. The IV-A retails for
about $400 with a 35mm lens.


HOUSINGS AND STROBES

If you elect to house a land camera, IKELITE and
TUSSEY offer reliable and manageable housings for most
standard 35mm cameras. Prices range from a modest
$200. to several thousand dollars. Another alternative of
getting your camera own is EWA MARINE'S flexible
plastic housings. They will even accept an auto-winder for
most 35mm cameras when added for quick firing se-
quences. They are relatively inexpensive $50 $60,
and accept any 35mm camera with lenses up to 85mm.
If you own an expensive land system, you should give
serious consideration to your choice of housings. The
integrity of the housing is critically important. The housed
camera can offer more options than an underwater
camera, but the big risk is flooding. If you ever drown your
land camera immediately submerge it into a warm, fresh
water bath for at least four minutes, then submerge it in a
50/50 mix of alcohol and water for one minute. Im-
mediately dry it with a hair dryer and take it to a repair
shop for inspection. Most accidents like this are usually
the fault of the operator not the equipment. If the
thought of drowning your treasured land camera worries
you, (as it does me) check with your insurance agent and
see if he offers a policy to cover your equipment under-
water. Some manufacturers of housings have been
known to replace ruined land cameras when the flooding
was the fault of the housing, but most of the time this is
not the case. Your best bet is to triple check everything

before taking your camera diving. Follow a standard, pro-
ven procedure established by the manufacturer then
your own experience.
IKELITE manufactures a most reliable housing to ac-
commodate most land strobes. A pressure rating of 300
feet by IKELITE is most impressive and reassuring as
well. Diffusion filters are available to compensate for loss
of beam angle and your own familiarity with the equip-
ment are other attractive benefits. Prices range around
$100.
Marine strobes and slaves are as plentiful and diverse
as land cameras, therefore your selection should follow
the basic guidelines of need, versatility, compatibility,
quality and cost you would apply to any major purchase.
NIKON manufactures the SB 101 Nikonos speedlight for
their Nikonos line. It retails for $325. IKELITE manu-
factures a complete line of underwater strobes that are
highly respected for their reliability and quality. Prices
range from $200 $600. OCEANIC and SUBSEA offer the
two most extensive lines of manual and automatic strobe
systems. Their product lines contain virtually any type of
strobe or slave designed and can satisfy the needs of
amateurs and professionals fully. Prices range from
several thousand dollars to infinity. Another possible con-
sideration is the POPULAR Aqua F-1N. It can be adapted
to most housings and the Nikonos line and is a relatively
inexpensive strobe for its versatility and reliability. Price
is a modest $300 complete with trays and connectors for
a Nikonos.

INSTRUCTION

Although many beginners learn by trial and error, a
course in underwater photography can save time, money
and missed shots. If you plan to take a course and already
have a camera start shooting right away. Bring your
photos to class and let the instructor evaluate your re-
sults. His critique should carify areas of misunderstanding
and contain advice and suggestions how you can improve
your results. If you don't own a camera ask for your in-
structor's advice on buying one. His experience and
knowledge will be an asset to you and help you to make
decisions in the critical areas of compatibility and reliabili-
ty.
As you become more experienced your results will im-
prove. Beautiful reef creatures, sunken wrecks, treasured
moments with dive buddies and exquisite underwater sea-
scapes will decorate your home. But remember, in under-
water photography, practice is the best medicine. Take a
dose every chance you get.

THROUGH THE EYES OF
HURRICANES
by


M. G. Swift
Bernard Mandelkern is a normal sort of South
Florida fellow; he's from somewhere else. Bernard
plays tennis and would like to play in a chamber
ensemble with the cello he has standing in the corner of
his study. Mandelkern has remodeled the exterior and
is now working on the interior of his Fort Lauderdale
waterfront abode. He has a sailboat docked on the
canal behind his place.
But Bernard makes his bucks flying airplanes
through the eyes of hurricanes. His plane is a P-3
crammed with gust probes, four types of radar and an
array of other pieces of meteorological hardware
manned by a flight crew of ten along with six or seven
scientists and an occasional crazy reporter. Mr.
Mandelkern is a pilot for the Heavy Plane Division of
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration's Office of Operations, a fourteen year
veteran of N.O.A.A.
Says Bernard, there is nothing quite like night flying
through a hurricane at 1500 feet, breaking through into
the relative calm of the eye, and seeing a full moon
from down inside that giant swirling chili bowl of
Mother Nature. The seas in the eye are very rough but
confused. Near the eye wall, Bernard reports, the water
behaves like a river flowing in the counter-clock wise
direction of such northern hemisphere weather
systems.
N.O.A.A. pilots fly two types of hurricane missions:
reconnaissance (tracking and forecasting movement)
and research. Sometimes the missions overlap and on
board a particular flight, scientists and techicians will
be both tracking a weather system and doing weather
research at the same time. Normally, the United States
Air Force tracks storms until they get to within 24 hours
of the United States mainland or over Cuba (Castro
doesn't allow USAF in his airspace, of course), at which
point NOAA aircraft take over tracking.


Bernard Mandelkern logs an average of 850 hours of
flight time for NOAA, annually; 150 of those hours are
during hurricane season, June 1 November 30. There's
a trick to flying through a hurricane, if you haven't
guessed: keep the wind forward of the left wing of the
airplane and keep to eye of the storm to the right of the
nose. Bernard prefers doing a series of figure-4's inside
a hurricane at 1500 feet, allowing the meteorologists on
board his four engine prop, ample time to conduct their
experiments and/or make their measurements. The
ride is rough, (except in the eye), spiced with heavy
vibration, turrential rain and sometimes hail, lighting
and deafening noise crescending till the eye wall is
breached. He'll also do a number of passes at 20,000
feet to determine where a weather disturbance has
been and in which direction and rate it is going. Inertia
navigation is employed. As far as Mandelkern knows
only one NOAA plane has ever been lost in a hurricane.
NOAA's heavy planes fly out of Air Tech's facilities in
Miami. NOAA also flies a lighter fleet of aircraft and
helicopters in pursuit of weather and ocean
information. Many of the meteorologists and other
scientists work out of the Atlantic Oceanic and
Meteorologic Labs on Virginia Key south of Miami.
Hurricane Allen's 200 mile per hour winds and record
low pressure back in 1980 are still fresh in Bernard's
mind. That system missed Broward County,
fortunately. He scoffs at those who think that 1979's
David and its near miss of Broward County makes them
hurricane veterans. Many of us don't take hurricanes
seriously, the pilot observed; Alicia was a "minor"
hurricane and consider the damage she did to
Galveston.
Bernard doesn't worry much about his personal
safety during a hurricane. He'll most likely be working.
But he is concerned that he may find his sailboat in the
living room upon returning to his Nurmi Isle home from
a hard day's work. I suppose, such is life through the
eyes of hurricanes.
