DEAR EDITOR:
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! If it weren 't
for the "Waterfront News printing the article on
Schipperkes, by John Simpson, we probably would
have never known what they were.
We live aboard a 55 foot Chris Craft and plan. on
cruising the'Bahamas extensively. Before we have
never had any pets aboard but now with the hijacking
and drug stories we 're a little leery of cruising alone
without some type of alarm system.
After reading the article we decide to at least go take
a look at the puppies that were advertised. (Your
-classified ad section at work.)
Needless to say we fell in love with the puppies but
wanted to think about it a little more first. We did some
more research on the Schipperke breed and decided to
get one.
That's not all! We told our landlords about them and
showed them the "Waterfront News article. They
went to see the pups and brought ours and theirs home.
We are amazed more and more as everyday passes
at how intelligent they are. And they 're only seven
weeks old.
We feel like she's going to be the perfect "Little
Captain for us.

Thanks again
The Mathersons

WATERFRONT NEWS


Dear Editor
It is with great appreciation that I note your interest
in maritime history. You perform a valuable public
service in reminding us that we are all heirs to a proud
seafairing heritage.
All this aside, however, I must take exception with.
Mr. Hammack's poorly researched article "Log of
Shenandoah Yields Strange Tales" The author asserts
that .Shenandoah was actually intended to be a
merchant ship instead of a fast commerce raider.
Nothing could be more inaccurate. In order to
circumvent international law as well as its own
neutrality laws the British government turned a blind
eye to the establishment of several "paper"
corporations. Acting as fronts for the confedercy these
businesses sold and traded cotton and other Southern
exports for munitions, medical supplies, and
paramilitary equipment. They also contracted for the
construction and outfitting of several light, fast
cruisers which were euphemisstically referred to as
cargo carriers. The ships CSS Alabama, CSS Florida,
and CSS Shenandoah were.all procured in this fashion.
On her maiden voyage the unarmed "cargo" ship would
rendeyvous at sea with another Confederate
vessel,take on arms and ammunition, and soon be off
to spread havoc among the war. mongering Yankee
aggressors.
These practices led to tremendous strains in US-UK
relations and at one point the British transferred
thousands of troops to Canada in anticipation of a
declaration of war. After the War for Southern
Independence Britain paid partial indemnification for
destruction of US property and issued a formal
apology.
Mr. Hammack is misinformed on several other
points. First James Waddell never commanded the CSS
Alabama. Her skipper was Raphael' Semmes, a
brilliant raider and blockade runner who led the blue
bellies on a merry chase before being cornered in
Cherbouy ,France in June 1864, Semmes accepted a
challenge from the commander of USS Kearsage to
fight a ship-to-ship duel: He accepted the challenge, not
realizing that Kearsage had been specifically equipped
and aimed to sink CSS Alabama.
The battle which followed was hardly fair. Kearsage
was a new war ship, Alabama:was'a lightly built vessel-".
which had'been continuously'at"sea fo'r 24 'mOnth,, -'--
during which time she had destroyed 82 Yankee ships;.
Her bottom was foul, sails and engines worn badly and
her French built artillery rounds were of extremely
poor quality. (The French do a much better job now).
The crew of Kearsage had been handpicked for this
mission, additional.cannons added, and the topsides
were partially armored by fastening chairs over the
exterior surfaces. CSS Alabma's thin hull was never
meant to stop cannon balls, and despite the
tremendous skill and courage of her captain and her
fearless crew this proud vessel was on the bottom by
nightfall. As you can see there was one Union ship
involved not several as Hammack states. Incidentally
Semmes was rescued by a French yacht and thus
eluded capture.

A SAFE BOATING CHRISTMAS
Many long for a new boat for Christmas, but most will
settle for something less expensive. An inexpensive
but valuable gift for the family, is the Safe Boating
Course offered by the Fort Lauderdale Power Squadron
November 14 thru December 19. The instruction is free:
the only cost is for the Student Manual.
The course is designed to be useful to all boaters, from
the fisherman in an outboard to the skipper in a family
cruiser to the sailing enthusiast. All are subject to
nautical rules and regulations. All should respect
tradional courtesies of'the sea. All are subject to the
forces of nature. The course is meant to be of interest
to the entire family and teenagers are welcome. In the
class now underway, over one third of the enrollment
consists of family groups.
The first class is 7:30pm Wednesday November 14. The
class is held Monday and Wednesday evenings at the
New River Middle School, 3100 Riverland Road, Fort
Lauderdale. (From Davie Blvd, go south on 31 Ave.
SW.)
In order to complete the course before Christmas, it is
held two nights a week. Full value is obtained from the
course by reading the Manual and completing multiple
choice questions on each section before class.
Many marine insurance companies give a discount to
graduates of the course. This is determined by the
final examination, -A ,free, optional Pilotinr session

-EDITOR'S MAILBAG



Dear Editor,
Renewed winter trade and tourist dollars bring relief
to many small businesses in Ft. Lauderdale. My
husbands yacht refinishing business has always been
subject to seasonal trade. We never minded bearing
out under the dictates of the calendar or even sitting
idle when inclement weather was the order of the day.
These days it seems that we and other reputable
refinishers are facing quite a different sort of problem.
I am referring to the unqualified and inexperienced
workers masquerading as boat yards. Granted, there
are a few yard that still conduct business in such a
manner as to take pride in what they do. These yard are
as concerned as we are.
It is becoming difficult to find a yard that doesn't try
to slip the "Velvet Shaft" to everyone they can.
Unsuspecting yacht owners are sweet talked with
everything from the use of company cars, vacations,
monetary,' material or other equally unorthodox and
possibly illegal benefits. They are seduced into
-thinking they are getting better labor, faster service,
and a cheaper deal. Better labor turns out to be high
school drop-outs, illegal aliens, and glorified house
painters under the semi-direction of, maybe, one
person. The faster service disappears rapidly after the
dock lines are secured and the owner is out of sight.
The cheaper deal inflates faster than a hot air balloon.
A friend of ours was recently raked over the coals
when the time limit he and the boat yard had agreed
upon had been reached. Only half of the specified work
had been attempted, and his yard bill was twice what
had been quoted. He had become the victim of the "Boat
yard work order".
While most of our customers prefer to contract our
service under a time and material basis, we still
advocate a signed contract under certain.
circumstances. A boat yard can not under bid a true
and honest'bid except through deception. When yards
are forced to sign binding contracts, and obey them as
we honour ours, they can not compete. The "work
order" used by unscrupulous ysrds gives "Carte Blanc"
to the yard. It guaranteed only that a specific task is to
be done. It does not usually guarantee quality
materials, correct techniques, or price. Some Bargin!
In all fairness to boat yards, I must say that we have
had to rectify damage done by dishonest, incompetent,
and unqualified free. lancers. Hirinog a licensed free-
lancer.no moreguarantees quality than going to a boat
yard does.
If more people took a closer look 'at past
performance before the boat yards had a chance to
hypnotize them with cheap "Snake Charmer" tricks,
they would be better able to help destroy one very bad
problem for everyone concerned-and just might find a
true bargain in the process.

Treasured Walcrs
MARINE CHARRETTE SPURS
IDEAS AND ENTHUSIASM!
After ten months of planning, the Marine Charrette
entitled "Treasured Waters! Is Broward County
Missing the Boat?" was held at Fort Lauderdale's City
Hall on October 12th and 13th. During Friday night,
participants were given a series of short and
informative presentations which were designed to
educate and mentally stimulate those individuals who
were taking part in the work sessions the following
morning. Those subjects were: The Business of
Boating, Background History and Development of the
Waterways, Commercial and Heavy Industry (Port
Everglades), Zoning & Restrictions along Waterways,
Where Can Boats Go, The Use of the Waterways for
Transportation & Cruising, Marine Related Activities,
Marine Events, Ecology Issues, Safety and Law
Enforcement, Navigable Waterways, and What Other
Cities Have Done in Developing Their Unique Water
Assets.
Saturday's work sessions started at 8:15 AM and
stopped only for coffee breaks and meals, which were
provided on premise. The Charrette concluded at
approximately 10:15 pm- a long day, but a rewarding
experience.
Groups were divided firstly by common interest in six
general categories: Marine Events, Commercial
Waterway Use. Recreational Water Use, Ecology,
Education and Safety, and Planning, Control and
Regulation. Later in the day, participants were re-
assigned into groups that had a mixture of the previous
groups. The re-assigned groups then discussed each of
the six general categories to come up with specific
recommendations, ideas, and suggestions.
A follow-up Charrette group will be finalizing the
results in a written document. The conclusions from
the Charrette are far too numerous and detailed to
outline the results in our Newsletter; however, we will
outline some-of the key results for you pending the final
documeiit: a master waterway development vlan with
county/city participation', boating safety information
provided to boaters at time of registration, water park
system for specific activities,designated activity areas
on the beach, offshore power-boating course, marine
library, docking facility at Birch park, a waterborne
transportation system from Ft. Laud./Hollywood
airport to hotels along the ICW, a world class yachting
center which could accommodate the ultra-long luxury
yachts in the Port Everglades area, a marine calendar
and marine events council for better scheduling and PR
of events, stop .non-point source pollution and
establish ecology education programs through the
Board of Education. These are some of the types of
ideas, and the participants are enthusiastic to see
these and other ideas become reality.

SUBMERGED LAND LEASE SAGA
CONTINUES
The Sailfish Club of Florida has won its case against
the DNR regarding their license and the proposed rule
to change the submerged land lease rate to a potential
gross revenues from wet slip rentals approach.
The DNR will be appealing that order.
The DNR placed on the October 16,1984, agenda for the
Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement Trust
Fund (the Governor's Cabinet) a'request to approve
holding workshops and to proceed to final rulemaking:
on a newly proposed "Base Fee/Percent of Gross
Revenues" marina lease fee structure and to approve
the use of this new fee structure as an interim method
until completion of the rulemaking process; i.e.,
approve it now, put it in place then move forward with
public hearings and the rulemaking process.
The DNR staff recommends pursuing-an actual gross
revenue approach which would include all activities
involving lease, sale or rental of boats slips, overwater
repair and maintenance charges, fuel and oil, boat
rentals, and recreational boat services. They state that
this method will produce a closer approximation of the
market rental value of submerged lands, including any
market differential based upon geographic differences.
The proposal will result in an assessment paid onf the
anniversary date of the lease, certified by a C.P.A.
provided by the lessee, on either a' base rate;at-.per
square foot cost or a percentage of the gross revenues
of activities within the leasearea, whichever is greater.
The percentage is initially proposed at 7 percent.

GREENWICH GROUP LAUNCHES
MARINE "OWNER-SHIP"
INSURANCE
By Maria Marion
FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. --A totally new concept in
insurance debuted today with an announcement by the
Greenwich Group, a Florida-based risk management
and insurance company, that it now offers insurance to
protect both the purchasers of boats and the financial
institutions which loan the mortgage money. A form
of marine casualty insurance, the "Owner-Ship" policy
is the equivalent of real estate title insurance for the
marine industry.
Greenwich Group chairman and chief executive
officer Wiliam Comiskey said his company's novel
"Owner-Ship" policy took more than a year to develop.
He said it will soon be available from a network of
GreenwichGroup offices or licensed agents throughout
the United States.
"Our policies cover the same fundamental risks as
those covered by real estate title insurance," said
Comiskey, "and they also insure against problems that
may arise under maritime law."
Such problems, he said, may develop because of
continuing changes in the procedures used by the U.S.
Coast Guard or private services to document
ownership of vessels. The new maritime title insurance
protects against mechanics liens, judgements and
other maritime liens that may jeopardize the status of a
vessel's ownership
Much like real estate title insurance policies, the
marine title insurance will come with independent
documentation of ownership. The Greenwich Group
has already approved documentation services in key
boating areas throughout the United States:
Through its affiliate Greenwich Marine Advisors,
risk management experts and partners in the
insurance venture, the Greenwich Group has also
developed a comprehensive program for
documentation, with a manual of procedures to follow.
As part of its total protection package, the Greenwich
Group also covers both lender and the purchaser for
any errors or omissions that may occur in the
documentation process
"The buyer and the bank are not only protected for
undisclosed or unrecorded claims against the vessel,"
-jsaid-..Jo.mi.ske.y.,_"b.u.t..als.o,.f.rQ.oi.any loss that might
occur from errors made in the closing of the purchase
or the loan transaction."Comisk'ey said one effect of
the new insurance he foresees is a greater willingness
by lenders to loan money for boat purchases.
Yegen Marine, one of the nation's leading marina
financing specialists, expects to be recommending the
maine "Owner-Ship" insurance to all of the financial
institutions it represents. Yegen Marine Vice President
John Hohenstein said he expects it to become an
accepted part of all boat purchases.
"Some form of marine title insurance has been
needed for years," said Comiskey, "We're enthusiastic
about the new policy. It will save people a lot of
headaches."
An important distinction between real estate title
insurance and the marine "Owner-Ship" insurance
offered by the Greenwich Group is that the latter is
considered casualty insurance, requiring agents to be
licensed in each state.
The cost of the insurance is based on the dollar value
of the risk taken, either the price of the boat or the
amount of the mortgage, and it may be added to the
amount of the mortgage loan, effectively spreading its.
impact over a period of years. Since the Greenwich
Group hires the documentation services directly, this
cost is included in price of the insurance. No separate
professional fee for documentation is charged to the
purchaser or lending institution.
When a buyer purchases the marine "Owner-Ship"
insurance, the Greenwich Group designates the
documentation service which then performs a title
search, a lien search according to terms of the Uniform
Commercial Code, and a judgment search. The
documentation service then issues a title status report
to the Greenwich Group, which authorizes the local
agent to issue the insurance.'The process takes no
more time than documentation on a vessel without the
insurance, according to Comiskey.


TOTALLY RECONSTRUCTED
MARINA IS DEDICATED TO
DELUXE SERVICE...
By Pegi Adam
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL...Pier 66 Hotel and Marina is
sparing no expense to make its 142-slip marina the
best in Florida, according to Clive Chu, president of 22
-acre marina-hotel complex on the Intracoastal
Waterway, adjacent to Port Everglades. More than
$2.3-million is being spent to reconstruct the facility
into a state-of-the-art model, with streamlined design
details that complement the recently renovated hotel.
"The Pier's marina has always enjoyed a reputation
as the poshest boat pad in the world," says Ronnie
Stroud, the marina's 28-year-veteran harbormaster.
"And we intend to stay on top!"
Plans called for complete overhaul of docks and
slips and replacement of the two old buildings with two
new ones: a ship's chandelry/observation deck/fuel
center and a harbormaster's office/game/TV room.
The initial phase, already completed, was
reinforcement of the 28-year-old docks, eroded by
continuous assualt from seawater, always a major
problem to marine structure. The best process so far
developed was employed--that of sandblasting the
iron/steel reinforcing rods, coating them with a special
epoxy mixture and covering the whole thing with
concrete--the same process that has proved successful
at the Lauderdale by the Sea fishing pier.
Each of the 142 slips, some designed to
accommodate boats up to 160 feet in length with drafts
up to nine feet, is equipped with a large dock box, two
phone connections (one tied to the hotel and marina
switchboard, one, designed for installation of private
lines aboard boats), cable TV hookups, water, hose
hangers, cleats, fenders, lighting and at least two 220-
volt/50-amp outlets.
Special polyetheline fenders, developed by parent
company Phillips 66 Petroleum, are proving so durable
that other marinas are installing them to replace

In the marine store, a snappy grey, blue and red color

newest available ship-to-shore communications
equipment, telephone lines and mobile radio
connections to dock personnel. A game/TV room has
been equipped with card tables, TV pool table and

"A deluxe hotel on premises is a unique added
attraction," says Stroud. "Yachts anchor here two or
three months of the year, with owners who want to
have friends visit but not stay on their boats. As a
courtesy, we act as a reservation service for rooms in
the hotel."
Boaters have full use of all hotel facilities, including

COLUMBUS DAY LOG
By Fiona Welles
Friday 2:00 P.M.
After weeks of sanding, scraping, and painting
Fantasy was loaded with food, drink and water
balloons. Our crew was ready to sail!
Heading out of Port Everglades the ocean was calm
and, as expected, all sailing vessels in sight were
making their way South. We all agree that Christopher
Columbus must have been watching over his fleet for
the 31st Annual Columbus Day Regatta, Hurricane
Josephine had blown North and was no longer a threat
to our weekend.
Friday 3:00 P.M.
Five dolphins appeared off our port bow. We enjoyed
watching them move in concert through the water.
Friday Sunset
The sunset behind the Miami skyline brought out the
cameras for a memorable picture.
Friday 8:00 P.M.
We stopped at Miami Marina to pick up ourfinal crew
member, who flew in from Oregon for the race. Within
ten minutes we were back in the channel and motoring
South. All eyes concentrated ahead until we entered
Biscayne Bay and found our club raft-up. Once secured
and dinner completed we settled into an evening with
the moon and the stars.
Saturday 9-00 A.M.
Our raft-up disengaged and all boats headed for the
Start Line to find out which course would be salied. As
soon as we spotted the course flag we plotted our
headings and discussed our strategy.
There are no words to describe the start line other
than to compare it to a shark feeding frenzy. Boats
everywhere, going in every direction trying to.decide
the most advantageous positionbe in at the start gun.
Saturday 10:10 A.M.
The gun sounded and we were off downwind. The
bay was ablaze with a multitude of brightly colored
spinmakers, occasionally luffing, trying to catch
whatever wind there was. Fantasy had great difficulty
in keeping her sails full.

Saturday 11:30 A.M.
All 738 sailing vessels entered in the Columbus Day
Regatta had commenced racing. As far as the eye
could see, from one side of the bay to the other, sails
were starving for wind.
There was, however, excitement all around us
provided by various other sea and aircraft. Several
ultra-light aircraft flew among the masts, a hot air
balloon stationed itself somewhat higher and an old pit
special did loops de loops in front of us. As the news
helicopters hovered we waved frantically in hopes of
seeing ourselves on the evening news. The Columbus
Day Regatta would not be complete without the power
boaters throwing, what seemed to be, as much wake as
possible on our paths.,
The best entertainment of the day was provided by
the water balloon extravaganza. As we got close
enough to the "enemy "it was "all hands on deck, "
and "man your battle stations, load the slings and
fire balloons. This process was repeated many times
throughout the race.
Saturday sometime between 11:30 and 12:00 P.M.
We sighted the first mark "G "and headed straight
at it. Each crew member had a job, two to douse the
chute, one to pull out the Jenny at the precise moment
of passing the mark and me at the helm. As we came
around the bouy there was some confusion as to which
tack we should be on. After consultation with several
other boats in the area, we chose a starboard tack and
headed across the bay toward the second mark "T ".
Behind us we could hear screaming. We turned our
heads just in time to see 3 boats manovering for the
same space and the inevitable CRUNCH. Our crew
member from Oregon became hysterical with laughter.
We rounded "T "and the third mark "I "with little
difficulty, trying to steel whoevers wind we could, an
acceptable race manover, and headed toward the
finish line.
About 3:00 P.M. the. wind picked up and Fantasy
sailed with ease.
Saturday late afternoon
The Finish line was.a welcome sight. As the racers
converged on the Committee Boat we held up our
assigned numbers and our times were recorded.
The Finish Line also has a reputation of circus-like
atmosphere with a multitude of'surprises, the main
attraction NUDITY. This year the biggest surprise was,
there were no surprises at all and our vistor from
Oregon was most disappointed.
Making our way through the maze of the hundreds of
already anchored boats was an accomplishment in
itself. We tried to contact several club members on the
radio but Channel 70 was a mass of confusion. It
seemed like everyone was trying to talk at the same
time to someone else.
Saturday 5-00 P.M.
With Fantasy finally at anchor at Sands Cut it was
time for relaxation. We drank rum slushes, had a
cooling swim followed by a warm shower and as the

SAILING
sun set no flashers had visited our raft-up.
Saturday 7:30 P.M.
Dinner was shared with the crew of "Second Wind "
and the mosquitoes of Sands Cut. The night sky was
an awsome sight, 1000 or more mast lights created the
illusion of a city that did not really exist.
Saturday 9:00 P.M.
The evening's party time was abruptly interrupted
by a raft-up's nightmare. The anchors pulled free and
8 boats were rapidly moving dangerously close to
other anchored vessels. The need do break free
became evident. Engines were quickly started, lines
undone, and suddenly we were left alone with
"Second Wind ". Together we fought a strong
current. Both engines manovered our still attached
boats until we were once again securely anchored. Our
party now reduced to only two boats we splurged on
Hot Chocolate and exhaustion quickly set in. We
crashed by 11:00 P.M.
Sunday 8:00 A.M.
'Noah"Weather Radio reported the wind out of the
north at less than 10 knots. Sunday "s race back
would be slow. After a crew vote, we decided not to
conclude the race.
Sunday 9:30 A.M.
Heading north in the Bay we encountered some other
"drop outs and a large sea turtle swimming lazily.
Behind us the 10:00 A.M. start gun went off and
Sunday 's race began.
Sunday 11:30 A.M.
We passed the Committee Boat at the finish line and
headed out the Stiltsville Channel. The ocean was once
again calm and clear and the wind was on our nose.
"Fantasy needed the "iron jenny to provide
enough apparent wind to keep the mainsail full. The
jenny stayed furled. With the autopilot set and an
uneventful journey toward Fort Lauderdale. we took
turns catching up on sleep.
Sunday 6:10 P.M.
"Fantasy entered Port Everglades and headed up
the river.
Sunday 7:00 P.M.
"Fantasy was safely tucked away at her dock.
The remaining provisions were unloaded and she was
scrubbed clean of the weekend's caked on salt. As
the last slat was put into place and the lock secured,
another weekend had come to a successful end. The
fond memories and tall tales would be recalled many
times in the future.

BOARDSAILING REGATTA
PLANNED
By Sue Baer
Plans are now underway for the second Midwinter
Open Boardsailing National Championship Regatta.
Following the great success of last year's regatta, this
year's Sunshine Regatta will be held on February 8-10,
1985, in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
Once again, the Sunshine Regatta will be conducted by
the Greater Ft. Lauderdale Boardsailing Association
(GFLBSA) and run under the aegis of the United States
Yacht Racing Union's Boardsailing Committee. USYRU
executives Jonathan Harley and Evans Harold are
expected to be on hand to coordinate the judging.
Regatta co-chairmen are Jon Grau, President of
GFLBSA and Rus Emerick, last year's race chairman.
Top level competitors from around the world are
expected to participate in the Sunshine Regatta, which
occurs at the height of an intense winter racing season
consisting of several major regattas such as the Pan
Am East, Tampa Bay Crossing, Windsurfer Mid-
Winters, and Wayler Worlds.
Despite the championship calibre of the event,
organizers of the event encourage participation by-
novice and intermediate level sailors as well. The
Sunshine Regatta will feature two full days of Division I
and Division II Open Class and One-design triangle
racing, long distance and freestyle events, plus one full
day of funboard competition.

EASTWARD HOI BUT THINK
LIKE A PRO I
By Bill Lange
For southeast Florida boaters. Eastward Ho is the
way to go. But, Skipper, properly prepare yourself,
your vessel and your crew. Too many boaters adopt
that most risky "Bimini Syndrome" and are far from
safe.
As soon as you push into the Gulf Stream you are
really on the ocean with all of the boating safety and
navigational aspects which you must foresee and be
equipped to handle. Given reasonable weather
conditions the trained skipper, even if only a
recreational boater and not a whole-time professional,
can sail in this briny. Yet right here you are heading
into that fabled Bermuda Triangle! Remember that
quite a few have gone down in these waters.
Sometimes the reason is never known; but most
causes can be overcome. Know your vessel!
Part of your preparation is to take the free
seamanship courses offered by the United Sta-es
Power Squadrons and the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary. I
urge you to take both since what sounds like overlap in
topics covered is not'redundant when you absorb the
varing approaches and experience of the numerous
instructors.
There is a USPS and a USCGAUX Flotilla near you.
They give several courses a year and the members are
always glad to provide information of their cruising
background. Even the U. S.Coast Guard licensed Ocean
Operator needs to acquire such local information prior
to casting off this genuine ocean crossing. The two
organizations use different texts and you'll want both
for your library. Also take the USCGAUX special Public
Education Course on Coastal Piloting. If you then
choose to become a member of one or both of these
groups you can take their advanced and technical
courses.
If unable to find USPS or USCG Auxiliary in your local
phone book you can call information on the courses
offered in your area to "Boat/U.S. FOUNDATION For
Boating Safety", 1-800-336-BOAT.
For all Eastward Ho-ers, regardless of your
experience, I highly recommend a book which I am sure
you will enjoy. FIRST CROSSING by Carol and Malcolm
McConnell (W. W. Norton Company, New York, 1983) is
a true story you'll stay awake to read, and its
extremely complete and well-tried details will prepare
you to view the ocean with due caution. Use the


URTERFRONTNEUJS POWER BOATING


McConnell's principles and the worst which might
befall you in the Gulf Stream will be surmountable.
What are some of the major items to know when
going over to the Bahamas? Please do not consider the
following as being all-inclusive; it is far from complete.
And note that I am thinking of safety rather than other
aspects.But most especially there are a lot of details
hidden within eachtopic. This article cannot point them
all out.
Weather:The Gulf Stream is made dangerous by
certain types of weather, particularly wind from the
northern quadrant. Even in good weather many
denizens of this waterfront consider that minimum
boat length to venture here should be 27 feet; although
many other characteristics such as freeboard, draft,
type bow and transom or type of power can be
determining. The weather has to be good enough
during your whole crossing; can you make safe harbor
when sometimes your course will take twice as long as.
expected? Do not go unless you are willing to delay
your return until you have a long enough assured
period of good weather. Know how to get the weather
forecast from National Weather Service.
Float Plan:File the details of your trip, your party and
your vessel with a responsible person who will know if
you have not reported safe arrival. The McConnell's
text tells you how.
Radio:Have a high quality VHF and a good antenna.
Monitor Channel 16. An 18 foot high antenna
sometimes can receive Florida VHFor even getthrough
with 25 watts. Do not count on your CB although there
are many in the Bahamas and it may be useful for
travel information. As you become determined to go
beyondthese waters you'LL need single side band
radio for safety.
Navigation:You are taking a major risk if you do not
know where you are. Have charts of the areasyou use,
keep a log as you proceed with respect to your planned
course. Read and record the current and winds. Know
your boat speed. Be sure your compass deviations are
known and plot your dead reckoning regularly.
Many skippers feel that the longer you are in the Gulf
stream the worse off you are. For you are constantly
sliding northward and must make the proper heading
corrections. The Gulf Stream fools many skippers--
frequently 100% more fuel is consumed than was
calcuted to be necessary.
There are some 700 islands and when about to make
landfall one of the big problems is determining whether
you are headed to the one you wart. An-.RDF is


indispensable for this purpose. To enter a harbor the
Yachtsman's Guide to the Bahamas is useful. You'll
need two good binoculars for look-outs who can report
distinguishing marks. In many places water depth is a
handicap even for small boats so a working depth
sounder is important. Yet experienced skippers prefer
to move only in daylight when the water depth can be
judged visually.
In many ways the best plan going to Bimini is to use
the buddy-system. I.e. several boats agree to go
together and to stick in a pack if they are
navigationally similar. For single-engine craft this is
helpful, assuming there is a qualified leader. Once in
the Caribbean Islands security reasons may merit
proper watch-standing buddies.
Life Preservers (PFDs to the annointed): The August-
September 1984 issue of Waterfront News discussed
PFDs and what you must have to be legal. Now that you
are tackling the ocean, stop saving a few dollars at the
possible cost of lives. Get enough Class I PFDs. Hold
boat drill for all your passengers and be sure they
know how to find and use the various safety items
which you have properly stowed on board. Go so far as
to have them read the U. S. Coast Guard pamphlet
"Hypothermia and Cold Water-Surival".
Visual Distress Signals(VDS): The types and legal
requirements were covered in the June-July 1984 issue
of Waterfront News. Accident reports repeatedly tell
sad tales of flares being used up before help saw the
shipwrecked person. So be prudent and have an ample
supply. As they become outdated keep them for
reserve as long as good and dry and apparently in
normal shape. Also invest in some of the more
expensive parachute flares. The hanging flare at up to
1000 feet and for roughly 25 seconds is incalculably
better than the maybe six seconds and barely 200 feet

of a meter type. Get some white flares too, since they
are legal for practise. And also might be useful if you
are in the path of a hugh vessel. Then someday fire a
few practice meteors so that you learn the angle tohold
them under windy conditions.
EPIRB(Emergency Position-Indicating Radio
Beacon): More and more boaters are getting these
items which automatically signal their location when
activated in water. There is a new Class C type for use
within 20 miles of shore since it alerts on VHF channel
16 and homes on Channel 15.
Surival Kit More boats should have these, and they
should be almost as jettisonable as your Class IV PFD.
A few yachts I have examined here do have an
"abandon ship" procedure, and the captain has a list of
the items to be taken. Captain DeVerteuil is the best in
this, respect.
But all of you Bimini-busters will find the Technical
Appendix on survival kits, and the survival equipment
inventory, of the. McConnell's book FIRST CROSSING
Worth studying. And remember that some one of your
passengers might be "Suddenly in Command" in an
emergency.




ASK BIG AL
Dear AI:
I have a twin engine boat witt a battery for each
engine. Both batteries are similar, bought the same time
and installed. One uses water every week, the other very
seldom. Both work fine and start engines great. Why the
water shortage?
Stan
Dear:Stan:
The generator or alternator. on the engine with battery
using water is overcharging and boiling out the water. If
you have idiot lights on, your dash you can't tell. Check
output with an accurate ampmeter. A defective relay
could be the cause.
Al

Dear A:
After a high speed run in from fishing, I idled down to
pull into my dock, Wtep I reved up my port'engine, the
engine popped like crazy and lost power. ~ starboardad
engine ran fine. Same condition:still exists. Points and
plugs are practically new and filters are clean. What
gives?
Mark
Dear Mark:
What you describe is usually a hung valve, broken
valve spring or possibly a blown head gasket. An intake
valve condition usually produces a popping in the
carburator. An:exhaust valve will cause popping in the
exhaust system. Take off your valve covers and turn the
engine over with the coil wire removed. Check valves and
springs; if o.k. take a compression check to locate the
trouble. P. S. A cracked distributor cap will also cause
vibration and loss of power.
Al


Dear AI:
My Johnson Outboard smokes, runs erratic and fouls
the plugs continuously. Do I need an overhaul or what?
Ed
S"Dear Ed:
Without knowing .how old your motor is' how many
hours on it, I can't tell you to do an overhaul. I can tell you
that fouling plugs and smoking outboard engines are
usually too much oil in your fuel mixture. Follow the
manufacturer's recommendations, use the right plugs for
your motor and don't forget to check.the cooling system.

BEACH DIVING, AN INEXPENSIVE
WAY TO DIVE IN FT. LAUDERDALE
By Bryan Brooks
Diving can be fun, exhilarating and be done
right in our own back yard. Many people get
certified each year in Ft. Lauderdale and
immediately think of far away places in the
Bahamas or the Caribbean. There are many
beautiful places to dive right here. Some of them
don't cost a cent, all you need is your gear and
walk due east until your feet hit salt water and
you're there.
Ft. Lauderdale has three ledges that run
parallel to our coast. Marine Geologists tell us
that they are left over from beautiful Elkhorn and
Staghorn corals that were in front of Ft.
Lauderdale during a period of time around the
last ice age. This,was around six to ten thousand
years past. When the ice started to melt the
oceans level of the world began to rise. Our reefs
mysteriously died and in their places remained
the skeleton lime stone ridges. On those ridges
grew miles and miles of beautiful soft corals and
fish. Thus the three reefs that occur just off our
coast.
Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood and Pompano Beach
offer the only place in this country that you can
walk off the beach, swim one hundred and fifty
yards east and see live corals and fish. The first
reef is the closest to the coast. I have.spent many,
many hours just swimming off the coasttowards
the first reef. The water level is around ten feet
and life flourish's. Any of the fish that you can see
in those expensive island resorts you can see
right here in Ft. Lauderdale.
Select a nice day which can occur either in
summer or winter. Put your gear on before you
walk to the beach; gear dragged to the shore can
cause problems if sand gets into it. Walk carefully
into the surf with your mask on and the regulator
in your mouth. The reason is that if a wave
knocks you down with all that gear on you can
crawl out beyond the breakers and begin your
dive. You have your mask and regulator on and in
so you can see and breath.

Some parts of the first reef naturally are
prettier than others. Some of the nicest sections I
have seen are right off North Ft. Lauderdale and
Lauderdale by the Sea. The dredging that was
done last year in Pompano and Lauderdale by the
Sea caused much havoc on the reef but after a
year they are starting to clean out. Small coral
fish such as Angel fish, wrasses and. puffers
abound. They are.pretty to photograph for divers
with an interest in photography. Some of the best-
of my fish shots were taken by me off north Ft.
Lauderdale beach. Some of the ledges are well
defined and a coral system lies right before you.
Spear fisherman might have a harder time
because most of the food fish have been taken
long ago. But tropical fish collectors, shell
collectors and photography buffs like me will
have a ball.
Because of the shallow depth your bottom time
can be well over an hour. For those a little more
experienced and with the energy some of the
ledges further out are a little better defined and
quite populated with fish and soft corals.
However if you do go out that far please allow
yourself plenty of air to swim back to the beach
with. Its always easier to swim home underwater
than on the surface. Its a lot safer too. Remember
the same people that drive cars drive boats.
Always have your dive flag with you on a float
line. Its-the law and just safer.
This time of the year is lobster season and
divers on the first reef have always done quite
well. The little critters are in the coral during the
day and walk around in the sand after dark. Some
of the best lobstering that I have ever done was at
night swimming just east of the first reef in the
sand section between the first and second reef.
They walk around at tight and are a little easier to
catch away from the reefs. Just shine your light at
them and approach carefully; a net and light are
all you need for night lobstering. Remember only
take what you are going to eat, no more than six
per diver. Make sure the lobster is not a female
with eggs. This you can check after you catch
them by turning the lobster over and looking for
eggs on her tummy. Only when we as divers
police ourselves .will our beach reefs remain
beautiful.for all who follow. If you aren't going to
actually eat what you shoot then "Take only fish
and leave only Bubbles".
Beach diving off Ft. Lauderdale in the warm
summer months is always a lesson for me on hoe
beautiful and wonderful this creature that Jimmy
Buffett calls "Mother Ocean" really is. Often my
sons and I have swam out just past the first reef at
night ,then surfaced. We'd look west back and
towards.civilization and see lights and cars like
little spots going back and forth and laugh.
People think it's dangerous out where we are at
night, that's funny, we think they are in the
danger zone, we are out there crawling around in
the Sea. We've kidded about it before and say "If
there is a God, He's not up in the sky, He's passing
the time of day deep down there in Mother
Ocean's belly."


STOLEN EQUIPMENT
On May 17,1984 while on the way home from Ginnie
Springs Jeff Bozanic's car was stolen in Miami with all
of his cave diving gear in it. The car has since been
recovered, but none of materials worth $31,000 were
inside. Also missing were his research notes, lecture
notes, diving logbook, and much other irreplaceable
documentation.
As cave diving equipment is farily specialized, it
would be quite noticeable should someone attempt to
sell it to you or one of your customers. Should you do
so, it would be appreciated if you would contact either
the Miami Police Department or Jeff with as much
information as you can get about the person selling or
owning the equipment at the following addresses or
phone number: Miami Police Department, Auto Theft
Division, P.O. Box 016777, Miami, FL 33101, (305) 579-

NAUI SPONSORS A WRECK
The Metro-Dade Artifical Reef Program is creating a
series of wreck sites off Miami, Florida. These sites are
providing wonderful recreational opportunities for
divers and fisherman alike.
The National Association of Underwater Instructors
(NAUI) supports this environmentally sound program
which not only enriches the waters but also adds the
potential for unique diving experiences. NAUl
Headquarters and South Atlantic Branch, to kick off
NAUI's Silver Anniversary Year, are donating funds to
sponsor a wreck site.
Within a few months, the derlect Vessel Proteus (a
220'freighter) will be placed in 80'of water to become a
coral covered residence for marine life. Getting the
Proteus to the reef site will require money and energy.
She must be made temporarily seaworthy, be cleaned
of fuels and loose debri, and be towed to her new
resting place, where she will be dispatched to the
bottom with an explosive send off.
S The project started as a candidate's idea for a final
oral presentation at a NAUI InstructorTraining Course.
After the ITC, Valerie Rutledge (now a new NAUI
instructor) undertook the project in earnest. When she
finished, many individuals in NAUI had become
involved in helping the Metro-Dade Artificial Reef
Program. The NAUI Diving Association, through the
NAUI South Atlantic Branch, raised funds to sponsor a
wreck site for several excellent reasons:
ENVIRONMENT: The Artificial Reef Program not only
enriches the waters and marine life but also adds the
potential for unique diving experiences; experiences
which will keep divers diving and learning.
SAFETY: The wreck site sponsored by NAUI will provide
a large wreck well within sport diving depths, thus
opening a "safe" wreck dive to a large spectum of
divers.
EDUCATION: Because of its size and depth, the NAUI
wreck will offer a wonderful diver training site and
ecological study site.

MARINE TRIVIA
By Bryan Henry
Seas may be part of an ocean(the Caribbean Sea is part
of the Atlantic Ocean) or they may be separate, like the
Mediterranean.
The average depth of the oceans is five times the
average height of the land.
Of the 350 known species of sharks, only three feed on
plankton.
The whale shark is the world's largest fish.
Lake Okeechobee is the largest body of fresh water in
the United States without a natural outlet.
Bolivia and Paraguay are the only two South American
countries that do not have seacoasts.
There are 2,145 miles of canals in Florida. Dade and
Broward counties have more than 200 canals.
Dare County in North Carolina has a greater variety of
fish in its waters than any other county in the United
States.

JUNGLE QUEEN: A PICTORIAL
ESSAY
By Ray Goll
Like many people living in Ft. Lauderdale I have
spent a lot of time parked on bridges along the
Intracoastal Waterway or the New River waiting for
boats to pass. Thats fine with me as I have been around
boats most of my life and enjoy the sight of just about
anything that floats. Usually while waiting Ill even get
out my car and walk over to the.bridge railing so I can
get a better view. This is also allows me to read the
name of the boat and the port that she hails from. As
the boat slips by I frequently find myself slipping into a
Walter Mitty like daze imagining myself as the skipper
headed for some far off exotic port. The sound of car
horns from less imaginative people waiting on the

bridge brings me back to reality before anyone
becomes violent.
As I logged more and more "boat watching" hours
this past spring I realized I was seeing one particular
boat again and again from area bridges. It was the
Jungle Queen. With her twin stacks, gingerbread trim
and flags flying she always looked like she was
steaming up the Mississipi River headed for St. Louis!
Naturally, among the passengers there were several
riverboat gamblers in black suits, string ties and
derringers hidden in their boots. A vivid imagination is
a definite asset while "boat watching".
Finally I decided I would have to find out where the
Jungle Queen really went as she churned along the
waters around Ft. Lauderdale loaded down with
tourists from New York, New Jersey and Ohio. That is
where all tourists are from isn't it?
So on a bright Sunday morning I paid my fare at the
Jungle Queen ticket office at the Bahia Mar docks
across from South Beach parking area, had my picture
taken by the ships photographer and boarded the
Jungle Queen. Promptly at 10:00 a.m. Captain John
McDonald eased out into the Intracoastal Watewrway.
With her twin 671 Detroit Diesel engines turning easing
we headed south and then swung to the starboard and
moved westward up the New River past the Las Olas
Islands.


Crew member and host Ken Hawes compliments the
view with commentary and andedotes about the
property owners and their lifestyles over the

a< ewomwA nt\ \l\ yl armmuV\ mrt e\lrt


public address system. Continuing up the river through
downtown Ft. Lauderdale gives you a new perspective
of buildings normally seen only from city streets. After
passing the downtown area you cruise by older
sections of Ft. Lauderdale where the homes may not be
ostentations as those seen earlier, but the history is
just as interesting. Along with his historical comment,
Ken Hawes includes the names of many tropical trees
and plants along the rivers edge in his commentary to
hold your interest.
Shortly after passing under the 1-95 bridge theboat
docks at the Jungle Queen Indian Village. The stop
allows you to walk around the village where you can
see a variety of tropical birds, monkeys and see a
"alligator wrestling" exhibition during the half hour
break.
The return trip down the river allows you to take all
the pictures you "missed" on the way up the river. It
also gives you a chance to just sit back and enjoy the
boat ride as the captain skillfully guides the Jungle
Queen along the twisting river. With boats docked on
both sides of the river and passing other craft headed
up the narrow river there are places where the Jungle
Queen with her 27 foot beam just barely squeezes
through.
The return trip also includes a pass through Port
Everglades where you may see a tanker docking, a
freighter unloading on a trip to the Carribean. The final.
leg of the cruise remains as interesting as the beginning
as you pass the Pier 66 Hotel and Marina complex. And
Harbor Island, where homes reportedly sell in the two
million rinllar rannp nr t mntr w nvfrn t. Irt ..n n..n.


S11

As the cruise ends when the Jungle Queen slips into
her berth at the Bahai Mar dock, there will no longer be
any question in your mind as to why Ft. Lauderdale is
known as the "Venice of America".
It's an enjoyable three hour trip. You probably will
not mind being a "tourist" for a little while. I didn't!

FALL MIGRATION BEGINS IN FULL
FORCE
by Bill Rhodes
This is the time of the year to grease up the reels and
prepare for some great angling along the Broward
coast. Schools of mullet, pitchards, cigar minnous and
other baitfish begin their annual migration south along
our shores. Following these tasty morsels are a great
variety of predators.
Close to the beaches schools of large tarpon, snook,
barracuda, jocks along with bluefish and mackerel
follow the baitfish. It's quite a sight to see a 100 lb.
tarpon tear into a school of mullet. Spoons, jigs and
plugs cast from shore or trolled usually bring lots of
action.
Around inlets baitfish will gather in great numbers
and attract various predators. A castnet is a useful tool
and with a little practice you can catch enough bait for
the day. A good circulating baitwell aboard or on shore
is essential because these little critters are difficult to
keep alive for periods of time.
Fishing piers are havens for migratory baitfish
also,boaters become very unpopular with the pier
purists when they approach for a castnet full of
pilchards. You know when you get too close because it
begins to rain lead from the hands of the pier
fishermen. Lookout!
We like to leave the dock early and search along the
beaches for diving birds or any sign of baitfish. In the
area of Haulover Pier Miami Beach we find pilchards
with regularity.
Chumming the reefs with live pilchard is a great way
to raise Kingfish, mackerel and other species this time
of year. This takes place further off the beach in 80 to
120 feet of water.
Many hook and line commercial boats fish off the
Hallandale water tower. After netting a baitwell full we
head off Hallandale and locate all the boats that fish
the area. Anchor up right in the group and have a ball.
Kings strike line bait with ferocity. Spinning tackle with
12 pound test works great. Anything much heavier
takes some fun out of it.
Occasionally throw a handful of lives over the side.
Kings and mackerel swarm to the surface for them.
This is when your line should be in the water. Oh yes for
these toothy critters you need a short piece of wire
leader tied directly to the line to prevent cut-offs. A
small 2-0 live bait hook with no additional weight is all
you need. When the fish grabs the bait a short drop
back is necessary. Set the hook quickly because after
couple seconds your bait is gone.
After the feeding frenzy goes on for a while it's a
good idea to drop a line bait to the bottom. Mutton
snapper, yellow tail and grouper could 'be present.
Back at the surface cobia and sailfish may show up.
Commercial fisherman using hand lines
occasionally hook sailfish. One time off the famous
"Cuban Hole" south of Miami's government Cut I
watched one such encounter. Man against beast or
whatever you might call it; It was a sight to see, Twas
like grabbing the tiger by the tail! After a couple
minutes of thrashing and churning up the water the
hook pulled. This was probably a lucky break for the
fisherman.
Autumn northeasters churn up a lot of great fishing
locally. Get in on the action. It lasts right on through the
winter especially during or after a cold snap.
