BUC INTRODUCES YACHT
BROKER SOFTWARE AND
Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-- BUC Information
Services, the Fort Lauderdale based boating
information specialist and publisher of BUC's
New & Used Boat Price Guides, has introduced a
series of industry standard software packages
for microcomputers, and an information network
for yacht brokers.
The first of the new software packages, the
Yacht Broker Management System, includes
modules to manage listings of boats for sale,
buyer/seller requirements, and sales staff
Designed to be run on a variety of well known
desktop and portable microcomouters, BUC's
Yacht Broker Management System includes
many features usually found on mainframe
computers-password protection, high speed
indexed files, elaborate error checking, online
"Help" files and a high speed data link to BUG's
All programs and files used by the Yacht Broker
Management System are designed to be
compatible with those used by BUC on its in--
house computer system. This standardization
assures compatibility with BUG's other online
information services-such as the online version
of BUG's New and Used Boat Price Guides, BUG's
Personalized Boat Evaluation Service and the
newly announced International Yacht Listings
Published in book form since 1961, BUG's online
New and Used Boat Price Guides contain current
market values for over 500,000 stock boats built
since 1905. All entries are indexed by
manufacturer, trade name, and model name.
Prices are based upon actual sales reports from
dealers, brokers, and surveyors.

a standard format, a broker in one city can
automatically search and match yacht listings

The system is self regulated by the brokers
themselves so that ech broker exchanges
listings based upon a series of criteria-price,
distance, type and only brokers of his choice.
Since all listings are updated on a daily basis, the
efficiency of the yacht broker is vastly improved
and buyers receive more accurate and timely
sales information. Although participation in the
International Yacht Listing Network does not
require a computer, firms using BUC's Yacht
Broker Management System will realize price
advantages that should offset the cost of the
computer in a very short time.
In late March, BUC will offer a version of the

so that sales personnel will be able to gather

PEACE CORPS MAKES NATIONAL
APPEAL FOR AGRICULTURAL
VOLUNTEERS TO SERVE IN
WASHINGTON-In response to the staggering
long term needs created by food shortages in
Africa, Peace Corps Director Loret Miller Ruppe
today launched a nationwide appeal to
graduates, retirees and others with work
experience or degrees in agriculture, forestry,
biology, health/nutrition, mechanics and water
Appearing on the CBS Morning News, Ruppe said,
"We need at least 10,00 Americans with
agricultural skills to contact the Peace Corps. We
must begin the application process immediately,
so Peace Corps can fill its requests for
agricultural Volunteers in Africa."
Peace Corps received in excess of 160,000
inquiries last year. But, for Peace Corps to meet
its Africa agriculture and nutrition trainee
requests for spring and summer 1985, at least
10,000 Americans with agriculture-related skills
must contact the agency now. "Peace Corps is
competitive," she stressed. "Only the most
qualified applicants fill be accepted.
"Peace Corps is tapping every known source,
Ruppe said, adding that the appeal for skilled
Volunteers is already underway. Telegrams to
major agricultural colleges and universities and
chief executive officers of agribusiness
corporations have been sent. Additionally, Ruppe
has sent letters to members of Congress to
encourage them to appeal to their constituencies.
"Feeding people is more than just growing food."
Ruppe continued. "To alleviate the African food
shortage, long term solutions to all aspects of
food production must be solved, and Peace Corps
is--always has been--working in the total

"For the past several years the number of
visitors to the show has increased dramatically,"
according to Yanis. "Miami International Boat
Show attendees not only have the opportunity to
tour the nation's largest boat show, but at the
same time enjoy South FLorida's climate,
beaches and attractions--which makes the show
visit just that much more pleasant."
However, the main attraction in Miami during
the boat show week remains the marine
extravaganza. Every conceivable water vehicle
is on display from tiny dinghies to ocean-going
yachts--there is something for everyone.
The Miami International Boat Show is known
as "the place to buy."
"With more than 800 boats on display--300
under $10.000--and a host of finance companies
and banks exhibiting, buyers can select the craft
best suited for them and, at the same time, have
all of their financial questions answered quickly
and professionally," says Yanis.
Sailboats, powerboats, fishing boats, high
performance boats, inflatables, sailboards and
more will fill the convention center aisles along
with hundreds of engines and thousands of
accessories. Showgoers will have the
opportunity to see and purchase the finest
products the marine world has to offer.
Returning to the 1985 Miami International Boat
Show is the Marine Mart, located in the
convention center mezzanine. Jackets,

SAFETY COMES FIRST AT THE
MIAMI INTERNATIONAL BOAT
by Geri Haber
Of the 1,241 boating fatalities reported to the
Coast Guard in 1983, drowning caused 1096,
leading experts to conclude that most boaters are
unaware of the safety precautions which should
be adhered to while boating.
This year's 44th edition of the Miami
International Boat Show--Feb. 22-27 in the Miami
Beach Convention Center--will feature the very

Viking-Life-Saving Equipment presents its
Norvik 30 PU life jacket, designed to
automatically inflate when a person hits the
water. The jacket, which was originally designed
to save a boater who is struck unconscious, also
provides additional boating safety for children.
The nation's largest public boat show will also
feature Datrex's design of the automatic life
jacket, which comes fully equipped with a lifting
ring. The ring attachment makes an air rescue
Also highlighted is today's most suitable
rescue device, the inflatable life raft. Sizes vary

FOR MIAMI MARINE STADIUM
A one-time opportunity to see the finest
European power boat racers challenge America's
best in the Champ/ON Boat Class highlights a
weekend of fun-filled events at Miami's Marine
Stadium February 16 and 17.
This action-packed weekend, all part of the
first annual Boating Week/USA, will feature two
days of international power boat grand prix
racing along with Yamaha Ski Shows, MerCub
Races and an attempt at a new water ski record.
A full day of events--all free to the public--make
up Saturday's Water Sports Day.
Revving engines make their presence heard
early Saturday morning as both the Champ and
Mod VP crews begin testing their boat's
equipment in advance of the afternoon
Three preliminary heats, two in the Mon VP
Class and one in the Champ/ON Class will begin
at 3 p.m.
More than 25 of the world's top outboard tunnel
boat race drivers from six countries--15 from the
U.S. and the balance from the United Kingdom,
Sweden, West Germany, Spain and Italy--are
expected to compete for $25,000 in prize money in
the Champ/ON Class.
Champ/ON boats have been compared to Indy
cars with no wheels capable of going 140 miles
per hour down a straightaway. These
aerodynamically-desinged power machines
spend majority of the race almost entirely out of
the water, making them dangerously difficult to
The European racers will be led by John Hill of
the United Kingdom in his Mercury-powered
SBurgess boat and Bertil Wik of Sweden, winner of
four Grand Prix races in 1984. The Americans will
counter with Bill Seebold, who at 42 holds more
than 44 national and world records and Chris
Bush, the 1984 Mod VP World Champion.
.The Grand Prix is approved by the Union of
International Motorboating and sanctioned by
the American Power Boat Association.
The Class Mod VP racers, which have the
appearance of every day family ski boats, are
standard V-bottom boats. Although the boats
carry only one person during the race, each boat
must be capable of carrying five passengers.
These larger boats--minimum length is 17 feet 9
inches--can travel at speeds of nearly 100 miles
In addition to the power boat races, the Miami
Marine Stadium weekend features the Yamaha
Outboards 16-member Ski Team which will
perform to the theme "Splash Dance"--produced
by Water Ski Shows, Inc.--Saturday at 1:30 and
Sunday at 11:45 and 2:30.
Water ballet, double skier ballet routines, high-
speed long distance ramp jumping, barefoot
skiing and clown acts are just some of the 16 acts
featured in each show.
WaterSki magazine and Johnson Outboards
will attempt to set a new record for the most
skiers pulled behind a single ski boat Saturday at
2:30. Dubbed the WaterSki Magazine World
Record Pull-Up, the effort will try. to break the
current record believed to be 29 skiers pulled by
one outboard-powered boat. A special Charger,
boat powered by a Johnson 275 V8 outboard
motor has been developed for the record attempt.
Celebrity MerCub races will begin Saturday at
noon. MerCubs are quipped with a 10-foot Cougar
tunnel hull and a Mercury 25-horsepower engine.

SPECIES IS THREATENED WITH
by Mary Unterbrink
Indians and early settlers hunted the mild-
mannered manatee, using the rich meat food. It's
believed that Cowpens Key, Florida, got its name
from the watery corrals where manatees were
kept. The thick hides were used for leather, the
blubber oil for cooking and light-ing, and the
ivory-like bones for carving.
Manatees have also been killed by disease,
flood-control gates, cold water, human
vandalism, and .collisions with boats. The herds
have dwindled until the manatee is now on the
brink of extinction. The manatee's search for a
friendly environment has become increasingly
This creature is immensely gentle, very
passive. The only thing itfights foris its existence
It's completely harmless to otherliving creatures.
It's loyal and loving to its own kind. Its predators
are sharks, alligators, crocodiles, and man.

The manatees were happy to cooperate in the
experiment by eating their favorite treat. During
quiet evenings thi- y could be heard contentedly
crunching the plants. Pretty soon, the scientists
learned that a single manatee could eat its way
through a half mile of over-grown canal in a
week. A natural solution to keeping the
waterways clear had been found.
Unfortunately, the experiment didn't have a
happy ending. Some of the manatees became sick
from algae in the water. Others were abused by
cruel humans. A sudden winter freeze caused
several others to catch pneumonia and die,
wiping out most of the herd. The experiment was
stopped and the survivors were released into open
waters in 1969.
A few years later, a biologist named Dr. Daniel
Hartman decided to study the manatee to learn
how the species could be protected. He set up an
outpost on the Crystal River, the largest natural
manatee sanctuary in Florida. There the
mammals gathered to feed and sleep in warm
Every morning for more than two years, Dr.
Hartman snorkeled amid the manatees in the
clear water. He studied their behavior in the early
hours when the river was quiet. He saw them slide
playfully along the bottom, and watched them
nuzzle each other and embrace with their
flippers. Their slow twisting and gliding was like
a graceful underwater ballet.
The shy manatees became his friends. He
named nearly 70 of them, identifying them by the
scars on their backs and the notches in their tails.
They liked to play by bumping him with their
snouts. Like playful puppies, they enjoyed a pat
or a tummy rub. Some of them chewed on his
flippers, clipboard, or the thermometer he used to
check the water temperature.
Each day the manatee spends seven or eight
hours munching on sea grasses and aquatic
plants. It takes that long to consume the 80 to 100
pounds of vegetation it needs, pulling
carbohydrate-rich plant roots from the sea bed.
The manatee has no incisors or front teeth.
Instead, its mouth is positioned to make bottom
feeding easy. The animal grasps its food with
muscular upper lips. Sometimes it uses a flipper
to poke food into its mouth. Its upper and lower
molars grind up the vegetation and are replaced
by new teeth as the old ones wear down.
The manatee isn't a very graceful eater. Nearly
100 years ago, Rudyard Kipling wrote that its
style of eating was very messy indeed.
Knowing of the manatee's special taste for
lovely, pastel water hyacinths, scientists placed
two dozen manatees in weed-choked canals in
South Florida in the mid-1960s. The waterways
had become clogged with the fast-growing
plants, making them impassable and restricting

Dr. Hartman tried to get speed limits
established for power boats that race around the
river. Manatees are hard to see when submerged
just beneath the surface because only their
nostrils show above water. And because they
move slowly, often they can't get out of the way of
boats in time to avoid being hit. Nearly all the
manatees in Dr. Hartman's study had been cut by
propeller blades. Sometimes infection set into the
cuts, and the manatees died.
BY the.end of Dr. Hartman's study, the waters
were becoming cloudy from pollution. That made
it difficult for him to watch the manatee's
underwater activities even from a short distance
away. He recorded everything he could see at
Crystal River. His documented work now
provides valuable information for naturalists and
others involved in the tug of war to save the

NATIONAL WEEK OF THE OCEAN
TO BE OBSERVED APRIL 28-MAY 4
1985 by Cynthia Hancock
National Week of the Ocean, an annual event
celebrating the ocean's influence on our culture
and survival, is slated for April 28 to May 4 this
year according to national chair, Scott Carpenter,
Intended to pull all levels of the nation together
in an increased awareness of ocean resources
and ways in which it influences our daily lives,
the event was proposed by Cynthia Hancock,
director of the nonprofit citizens group, Week of
the Ocean, Inc. in an abstract prepared for the
Oceans 81 Conference. Later endorsed by the
National Marine Education Association, the event
won the support of eight ocean pioneers including
Carpenter, who now also works on the Year of the

underwater photographer,Stan Waterman;
Carpenter and Hancock make up the team
working towards an annual national event.
After several years before Congress in an effort
spearheaded by Florida Congressman E. Clay
Shaw, National Week of the Ocean was written
into Public Law 98-274 and signed by President
Reagan in 1984.
Supporters are now asking that Reagan
proclaim an annual event beginning the last
Sunday of April according to Hancock. "This will
allow school systems and businesses to
showcase their work at a time of year usually
slated for such community efforts," Hancock

The International Billfish League has crowned its

The Bree-Huckins Fishing Team of Jacksonville,
Florida took top honors in the League's first year
with a win at the final tournament in Palm Beach.
They were able to take the tournament after a
calculated gamble paid off on the second day of
Palm Beach is known as one of the world's finest
winter sailfishing areas and most of the teams
entered were hoping to catch enough sails to win.
After the first day, the Bear Fishing Team from
Lusby, Md. had tagged and released three sails.
"With the Bears in the Lead, we decided that if we
had not had any luck with the sailfish by noon on
the second day, we would head offshore and look
for a blue marlin," said Bree-Huckins team
captain Randy Ringhaver. Under IBL rules a blue
marlin release is awarded 400. points and a
It proved to be a good move. Barely an hour after
heading offshore, they hooked into a blue marlin
estimated at about 250 pounds, Ten minutes later
the fish had been successfully tagged and
released and the Bree-Huckins team was in the
lead to stay.
Fishing was slow the last day as strong
Northwest winds made sea conditions
treacherous. A second blue marlin was released
by the Mako Fishing Team, fishing aboard team
captain Robert Schwebke's 46' Merritt"Charade".
This was the first IBL tournament for Schwebke
and the first blue marlin caught aboard his new
boat. The catch gave him a second place finish.
For their victory, the Bree-Huckins team received
a check in the amount of $44,800, and four entries
worth $32,000 in the 1985 series to defend their
title. The five World Championship gold rings of
Super Bowl quality valued at $25,000, will be

WINTER CHILL BRINGS GREAT
by Bill Rhodes
The blustery north winds in late January
brought Sailfishing to highest point in years off
our shores. You would have thought you were
fishing off Palm Beach seeing "pods" of several
Sails tailing south with the waves. Many charter
boats locally raised many fish and boated or
released ten or more in a single trip
Strong winds and current plus very clear water
seemed to have put these Sails ina frenzy. Live
bait was the ticket, slow trolled or from a kite.
Gary Lovell and crew taking a breather from
their rigorous schedule at Hallandale Fire and
Rescue had quite an outing last week. Leaving the
dock at noon to avoid the early morning thirty
degree temperatures, they did not have a lot of
time to spend catching their live bait, as it turned
out they didn't need much.
After catching only five live ballyhoo off the
beach they headed out to 100 feet of water. They
put two lines out and in less than ten minutes had
one on. Just before it could be released the other
line went taut and another beautiful Sail danced
across the water. This one was weighed in at 48
pounds and was caught on twelve pound
spinning tackle. Mr. Lovell achieved a new Club
record in the Hollywood Sportman's Club for that
tackle division. A nice catch indeed!
Two Sails in less than an hour; not a bad
afternoon. The other three baits were released as
the crew headed home to celebrate.
Another member of the same Club,Jerry Kerlin,
caught his first Sail last weekend. Aboard the
"Vanquish" with Captain Bill Aman an expert live
bait specialist Jay Hamilton, Jerry boated a 50
pound on medium spinning tackle.
Several nice Dolphin were mixed in also.These
colorful battlerss caught abundantly during the
summer months, roam close to the reef edge and
often times, are larger than average during the
winter. I've noted several in the 15 to 20 pound
class lately that have chased slow trolled line
bait. This can make a Sailfishing day complete
with fresh fish for dinner.
Chumming the reef in producing some good
action at night with yellow tail, mangrove and
mutton snapper. While leaving the 15th Street
dock early the other day I noticed the fish
cleaning table covered with a variety of snappers
caught during the night.
While the-winter months are still here take
advantage and get in on the action. Sailfishing is
,great all the way through April and are caught
Any anglers interested in joining a fishing club
are welcome to attend a meeting at the DAV Hall,
2118 Scott Street, Hollywood. The meetings begin
at 8:30 and are on the first and third Thursday of
each month. Local outings/tournaments along
with weekend trips to Key West, Palm Beach, Ten
Thousand Islands, Marco Bimini and Dry
S Tortugas, just to name a few, are offered.
A TIP FROM
FT. LAUDERDALE'S U.S. COAST GUARD
The prudent skipper watches his wake. A big wake can easily
capsize a small craft or damage boats or property along the
shore. Boaters are responsible for damage, injury or death
caused by their wake. Always cruise around docks, and anchor-
ages and narrow channels at minimum speed.
.If you're tryi a to keep up with the Joneses, make sure it's
not Davey. Let the Auxiliary give your boat a free safety exam.

DIVER VS FISHERMAN
FISHERMAN VS DIVERS
Its got to STOP
by Bryan Brooks
Growing up in Ft. Lauderdale back in the late
1940's and early 50's I fished the old E. Las Olas
bridges with the lovely island in the middle for
snook and tarpon. Nights upon nights of casting
live shrimp and yellow feathers under those old
bridges and the explosions as the snook and
tarpon struck will always be fond memories of an
unwasted childhood for me.
As Igrew to young manhood I received a mask
and started diving off the beach seeing the world
as only a diver sees it. The fish, the
weightessness and the lure of discovery were
heady stuff for a small child already deeply in
love with that wet sultry and wild woman known
as Mother Ocean.
I remember the divers in those days were
primarily spear fisherman. We looted and
ravaged the reefs like there was no tomorrow. We
shot snook and generally thought of ourselves as
macho hunters and the picture of the ultimate
Then most of us divers grew up and realized
that the ocean and the reef's had limits and we
were pushing them. The die was cast however
many fisherman were throughly fed up wih us
and rightfully so.
Thus began the age old war divers vs
fishermen and fisherman vs divers. There was
hate and distrust between two groups of
Its our ocean. "No its ours". In truth both groups
should be closer and talk to each other as our
basic goals are exactly the same: saving the
ocean and reefs from developers and the
As it is, the developers and polluters from cities
and industry must be having a good laugh at both
of us fighting each other. A good example was
last year when myself and another Ft. Lauderdale
diver went to dive on a beautiful warship off Key
A local diver had taken us to the place to begin
the dive. Soon a small boat with some fishermen
came by. The other diver from Ft. Lauderdale
started to scream at the fishermen. The local
diver quickly quieted him down and called to the
fishermen telling them exactly where the boat
was so that they could drift across it. The
fishermen did and caught some amber jack. They
waved to us and left. Why fight them, it's their
ocean too. They want to enjoy Mother Ocean as
much as we do and they have every right too.
As a diver I can only say to the fishermen in Ft.
Lauderdale, lets make up with each other before
its too late and all the reefs and fish are gone. The
petty differences that we have with each other,
and I see fault on both sides, aren't worth the
damage done by not sitting down and talking to
A representative from The Florida Anglers
Association came into my dive shop and
explained their position on everything from
dredging to pollution. We are in every way
fighting for the same goals.

MORE ARTIFICIAL REEF FOR
FISHERMEN & DIVERS
Two 32' by 10' tug boats were placed on the
Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo's artificial reef
site off Pompano Beach. These vessels, donated
and cleaned by Ray Qualmann Marine
Construction, were placed in 78 feet of water just
outside the third reef due east of the Pompano
Pier January 4, 1984. Transported by Zuccala's
Harbor Division of Boynton Beach and
underwritten by the Rodeo committee, these
boats joined 34 Chevron gasoline tanks and the
437' freighter "Lowrance" (former "Mazon") on
the Rodeo Reef.
By placing these boats in 78 feet of water,
divers will enjoy exploring the marine life on
these tugboats. Due to the depth of the
"Lowrance" and gas tanks, divers have been
unable to safely dive on these sections of the
Rodeo Reef. The new reefs loran-l coordinates are
14263,2; 30966,1; 43073,4; & 62096,0.
Steve Somerville, Engineer with the Broward
County Envirohmental Quality Control Board,
coordinated this project. Somerville is looking at
a number of other suitable items for the Rodeo
The responsible people from both the fishing
and diving community must sit down and start
communicating. There will always be idiots on
both sides but the issue we're talking about are
I've noticed when I drive my white dive shop
van past the fishing charter boats at Bahia Mar,
the fishermen on the docks seem to give my van a
look of contempt or dislike if they look up at all.
So I've made it my resolve that when I drive my
white van on the fishing docks whether its at
Hillsboro or Bahia Mar I wave at each and every
charter boat fisherman.
So if you're a fisherman and some crazy guy in
a white dive van comes and waves, I'm not kinky,
just a professional sport diver trying to bridge
the gap with my fisherman brothers and sisters.
It's too important a friendship. Think about it and
good luck.fisherman, my friend.

TREASURE HUNTER FINDS
BOOTY ON OCEAN FLOOR
BOSTON (AP)-A treasure hunter has retrieved
more than $1 million worth of gold and silver from
the ocean floor off Cape Cod where a pirate's
galleon loaded with booty from 22 ships sank in
The treasure being recovered by Barry Clifford
is believed to be that of the Whidah, a ship
captained by Samuel "Black" Bellamy that was
carrying the loot from the Caribbean when it sank
in an April storm 700 yards off Wellfleet.
Accounts by two survivors of the Whidah, as
well as accounts from seven pirates aboard-
another vessel that sank in the same storm, told
of great treasures aboard, including 180 canvas
bags that each held 50 pounds of jewels.

FT. LAUDERDALE TO KEY WEST
by Sue Whelan Heyer
Sponsored by the Lauderdale Yacht Club and the
Storm Trysail Club, this invitational is the warm
up for the Southern Ocean Racing Conference
(S.O.R.C.) but involves cruising boats as well as
large ocean racers. Many local skippers
participated in the longest and possibly the most
exhausting race in the history of the event.
The 160 mile course skirts the dangerous reefs
along the Florida Keys. Depth sounders were
checked constantly. In past years most boats
were in and the crews were enjoying the free beer
by Friday afternoon. Not this year.
First to arrive in 26 hours, 19 minutes and 23
seconds was the 78 foot yacht "Sassy" from
Detroit. Bringing up the rear, "Tolvfingertrmen"
was at sea 51 hours and 4 minutes. The rest if the
fleet trailed in sometime during the night Friday
and Saturday morning. Almost half of the 102
registered, opted for DNF (did not finish) points
Rather than continue on in the face of most
The conditions: A"beat" all the way, strong winds
on the nose, tacking constantly to avoid the reefs
and the north running Gulfstream, several squalls
and periods of no wind at all causing boats to drift
At Key West volunteer hosts & hostesses
prepared to welcome the fleet Friday afternoon
with food, drinks and live music. They found
themselves entertaining mostly wives,
girlfriends and committee personnel. These
hardy souls took shifts all night to clock in
finishers, take messages from worried families at
home and recording race results.
Some of the events scheduled for Saturday were
.put aside as exhausted sailors preferred sleep
rather than Volley Ball and arm wrestling, beer
drinking relays and greased pole climbing. The
Saturday night "on the house" Mt. Gay cocktail
party complete with roast oysters, Picadillo,
black beans and rice, did bring everyone out.
Super Star Jimmy Buffet showed up
unannounced and brought down the house.
Historically the hot shot racing machines head
for St. Petersburg to ready for the S.O.R.C. St. Pete
to Ft. Lauderdale Race. The rest head backto Fort
Lauderdale or Miami on Sunday. As luck would
have it this year the wind clocked to the North,
and the worst frigid front in years was predicted.
Most skippers left their boats in the Keys hoping
to return the following weekend for the long trip

CHAMPIONSHIPS SET FOR FIRST-
EVER BOATING WEEK/USA
by John Kiskinis
Fresh off the heels of making its yachting debut
at the 1984 Summer Olympic Games in Los
Angles, Windsurfer is ready to challenge the
treacherous Miami Beach waters as the Myers's
Rum Windsurferr Mid-Winter Championships
East comes to town Friday, February 15-Sunday,
Boardsailing (the sports generic name) is just
one of the boating events which will be featured
at Boating Week/USA, the nation's first ever
Considered one of the top three sailboard
regattas in the country, the Mid-Winter
Championship is expected to attract more than
150 of North America's finest sailboarders to
Miami Beach's Eden Roc Hotel, host of this year's
Windsurfer has grown by leaps and bounds
since its invention in 1965 by Hoyle Schweitzer.
Today, there are 250,000 boardsailors in the U.S.,
10 percent of whom participate in various
competitions such as the Windsurfer Mid-Winter
Championships East. An interesting sidebar is
that one in every five boardsailors is a woman
The Internationi Windsurfer Class Association
(IWCA) was formed in 1973 to promote
competition in the one-design class Windsurfer .
Based on IWCA sanctions, a Windsurfer
competition rests entirely on the skills of the
participating athletes, since every.sailboard has
exactly the same specifications.
Each IWCA competition features four events,
each requiring different skills from navigation to
endurance and strength, to flexibility and
Triangle Racing-Considered the most popular
event during Windsurfer Championships. This
event pits competitors against each other as they
race around three buoys set in a triangular shape
at 600 angles. From a spectator's vantage
point, the most exciting parts of this race are the
start, the first turn around the buoy, the home
stretch (usually against the wind) and the finish.
Freestyle-Often compared to a gymnastic floor
exercise, this event gives competitors a chance to
display not only their skills, but also their
imagination and daring by performing a series of
ballet-type moves, usually within a three-minute
period. The individual routines are performed
near shore to a musical background.
Slalom-A one-on-one event in which two racers
compete against each other as they make their
way through a course of six buoys set in parallel
lines. of three. Although a timed event, slalom
racing pits racer against racer in a style similar to
snow skiing. As in snow skiing, points are lost for
missing gates, time is lost for turning too wide,

PROGRAM TRANSFORMS TEENS
TO OLD SALTS
MYSTIC, CT-- For teenagers who have lost
interest in pitching tents and roasting
marshmallows, there is at least one exciting
alternative to summer camp--spending a week on
the water in Mystic Seaport's Mariner Training
The Seaport's program has been teaching
young people to master the basics of sail for the
past 36 years, acquainting new generations with
the traditions of going to sea.
For teenagers between the ages of 12 and 17,
the nationally known maritime museum offers
the land-based Conrad program for beginners
and intermediate sailors. Older teens, ages 15 to
20, go to sea aboard the schooner Brilliant.
While learning to sail in 9-foot Dyer Dhows on
the Mystic River, participants in the Conrad
program live aboard a historic, square-rigged
ship, the Joseph Conrad. The Conrad once served
as a training vessel in the Danish merchant
service under the name of Georg Stage. Now 103-
years-old veteran of nearly seven decades at sea,
the ship is permanently berthed at the Seaport
and has been extensively refitted below-decks to
accommodate 55 mariners.
Navy-type bunks, toilet and shower facilities, a
fire detection and sprinkler system and heating-
ventilation systems combine to make the Conrad
one of the safest and most unique floating
dormitories in the world.
On a typical day, mariners rise at 6:30 A.M. and
go to breadfast. After colors and clean-up, they
spend the morning tackling the wind and current
of the Mystic River at the helm of a sailing dinghy.
After lunch and liberty, there may be a museum
tour or instruction in rowing, tying knots and
other maritime skills.
Early evening may find the mariners climbing
the rigging of the Conrad or the Charles W.
Morgan the last wooden whaleship in America.
The day concludes with a planetarium show, sea
chantey concert or other activity.
All meals are served at the Seamen's Inne, a
restaurant at the north end of the Seaport
grounds or the Galley, right on the museum
grounds. There is also a field trip to an Atlantic
and the danger is evident when rounding a buoy
Long Distance Race-"The Windsurfer Marathon".
As is the case in any marathon race, both men
and women take off at the same starting point.
Coast beach and a picnic during the 6-day
For the older teens who long to leave the land
behind, the Seaport's 61-foot schooner Brilliant
offers a week of challenge and pure fun on New
England waters. Young people learn the value of
teamwork plus the practical application of
safety, seamanship and navigation.
Under the direction of the experienced, Coast
Guard licensed captain and mate, nine mariners
take on all the work of the ship including sail
handling, steering and cooking. One adult leader
companies each group of mariners.
A typical day on the Brilliant begins with a 6
a.m. wake-up call when the cooks of the watch
begin breakfast. After the morning meal, the
teenage crew cleans the vessel before weighing
anchor for the next port of call
Those on watch keep lookout from the
bowsprit, steer and trim sails, while the offwatch
may practice their piloting skills or simply relax
and enjoy the sail. In the evening, there is usually
an opportunity for a swim before supper. Cruises
may extend as far as Martha's Vineyard, bringing
the crew ashore to several points of interest.
Four-day weekend cruises are also scheduled in
spring and fall.
Built in 1932, the classic wooden schooner is
known throughout the East Coast for her elegant.
good looks, but her beauty is more than skin
deep. The schooner is also reputed to be one of
the finest sailing yachts ever built, and once
made a record crossing of the Atlantic. After her
racing career, Brilliant served in the U.S. Coast
Guard during World War II, but was later refitted
as a yacht by Briggs S. Cunningham. The
yachtsman gave the vessel to the Seaport in 1953
for use in sail training. Since then, thousands of
young people have learned to master the wind
aboard this classic yacht.
Fees for the Conrad program. which begins in
late June and runs through mid-August, are $230
($200 for adult leaders). A week-long course on
the Brilliant is $360 ($310 for adult leaders);
weekend cruises are $275 ($235 for adult leaders).

Department, Mystic Seaport Museum, Mystic, CT

Once the gun sounds, competitors jockey for the
lead position. The length of the race depends on
the specifications of the race. It can vary from a
few miles to a long, grueling distance.

CATALINA SAILING CLUB
WELCOMES NEW MEMBER
by Hilda Roberts
Several years ago, a group of Catalina Yacht
owners from Broward County formed a sailing
club.Membership was initially restricted to
Catalina sailboats; however, thru the years,
members who have acquired other types of
sailboats have remained in the club. This year,
The Catalina Association of Broward is making
its membership available to all Broward sailboat
owners. We would like to grow and have some
new members join us however, keeping the same,
small club atmosphere.
The Club has a racing program comprised of
two series of 4 races held March thru October and
two special races; The Catalina Cup, scheduled
for 2/17/85 and The Commodore's Cup which
date has not been set as yet. After each race, The
Club has raft ups at Lake Sylvia, free beer
available to members. During the year, some raft
ups may include pot luck dinners.
Cruises to Miami are scheduled during the
year, around the Holidays. For the last few years,
several boats have made the trip to Miamimarina
for New Year's Eve and to enjoy the Orange Bowl
Parade. Also scheduled are night sails during the
full moon, special events at Bahia Mar and other
restaurants by the water.
Meetings are held at The Galleria Community
Center on the second Wednesday of each month.
Next meeting is scheduled for 3/13/85.
Anyone interested is more than welcome to
attend our meetings. Social starts at 7:30 P.M.
business starts at 8:00 p.m. Or, you can call Hilda
Roberts at 485-4316, after 5:00 P.M.
Yearly membership is $25.00.

Ashore you have 911, but afloat, Skipper, you

Have you given safety enough weight in your

an ocean cruising sailor, a yachter of 45 to 65 feet,

As a boater, or boater-to-be, you and your
family should take the (USCG AUX and USPS boating

usually that is due to careless operation. By the

Most boating deaths are caused by (capsizing,
swamping, sinking). Learn what heading to take in

Your portable tanks, ice chests, etc.
Many (drownings) are unnecessary. Always
stay with the boat. Have one life preserver
(Personal Flotation Device) per person and wear
them when the water is rough, or when trouble
first threatens. It is too late to put them or later(
a boating problem usually multiplies rapidly and
severely). Have a family practice, put PFDs on,
get in a pool to see how you float. Never leave
them in their unopened wrapper--the opening
brings surprises. Eveiy boat (regardless of size)
must have one Class IV PFD(i.e. throwable type
ring, horseshoe or square. The USCG has recently
determined that Type III PFDs are not adequate for
over thirty minutes in rough water. So in such
boating have PFDs with a 17 pound minimum
buoyancy, preferably with 22 Ibs minimum.(lssue
6). Learn abour hypothermia and how to do a CPR.
(Person overboard). Mark the spot by an
immediate floating object, and throw the Type IV
PFD. Without such marker a head is almost
impossible to see in the water. Folding pedestal
seats often break and throw the avid fishing
person in the water. Nobody else should ever
jump in! Pulling a person into a boat is very
difficult; there is a best way for each boat, try it
(Fire). Prevention is essential. You and your
extinguisher are all alone, better have more
extinguishers than the legal requirement; a Class
B I gives maybe 20 seconds of squirt, (go for B II
size). (Issue 2). Fires primarily in the engine area,
or else the galley. Fueling fires often explode.
(Halon installed) over the engine is a boat-saver.
You should (have portables) at the helm, outside
your galley, outside your engine and at your
bunk. All mounted, check them to be sure they are
charged. Quite a few boat destruction come from
persons using (automobile replacement parts): such
parts are no good for boats. Sparks are caused by
accessory motors, alternators, distributors,
starters, and generators; fuel pumps release gas
into the boat; waterpumps are not brass.
(How to get help). Skipper, you have got to
preplan. Almost every month some skipper and
boat disapper--the Gulf Stream facilitates that--
while another, praying most sincerely, may be
found (in extremis). I highly recommend that you
read the books (First Crossing) by McConnell
(W.W.Norton and Co.) and copy the check lists.
Do not rely on CB radio but do have VHF. And
practise now the MAYDAY procedure (Issue II);
use it properly since your power may fail before
you can answer any questions. You still have a
.chance. f youa.re.EPJRB .equipp.e.d.,.(Jsse.l!). Even
February 15 March 15, 1985
it you are in the water, and nobody knows you are
in trouble, the EPIRB will first alert the Search and
Rescue people, and then guide them to you. A
yacht without an EPIRB is not well equipped, and
you of the Gulf Stream/Bimini Bust powerboaters
can't afford to do without one.
There is another aspect of getting help which
Federal law requires you to have, namely (Visual
Distress Signals). (Issues 10 and 4). Nobody ever
sees the first meteor, so it is best to carry more
than the mandatory 3. They are dated and when
expired you can carry the old ones as a reserve
after you buy the new ones. Given the usual winds
at sea it would be well for you to practise firing a
few meteors so you learn the correct angle; it is
legal to fire white ones for this purpose (never fire
red unless you are a MAYDAY case).
But what if nobody knows you are missing, or
where you might be? An efficient-pilot (that's you,
skipper) will file (a Float Plan). Leave it with
someone who will act if you do not check in at
your ETA: then searchers will know the color and
size and type of vessel, your intended course and
potential speed and other details needed to make
it a happy ending.
A basic and major factor in boating is (weather).
The first man to sail around the world alone
without stopping, Knox-Johnston, has said "the
sea is a very humbling thing. There is no other
force on earth as powerful as the sea...". Since the
seas and the winds are weather a skipper must
understand this subject, and see the probable
local meteo. As a basis for doing this start with a
USCG AUX or USPS course, then never leave your
port (and even the Everglades or Lake
Okeechobee are dangerous) without listening to
National Weather Service (telephone 661-5065, or
listen to VHF WX channel). Having read all the
weather books in several libraries I highly
recommend two by Admiral W.J. Kotsch,
"Weather for the Mariner",3rd edition and "Heavy
Weather Guide",2nd edition.
So while a boat show is in sight why not seek a
good price on a proper quality item from the
above priorities;:or calamity-preventers such as
a manual bilge pump, a spare battery, good long
anchor line, and check your. fuel lines-
methanol/alchol is being added to boat gasoline,
making them dangerous in a fewmionths.

A TIP FROM
FT. LAUDERDALE'S U.S. COAST GUARD
The prudent skipper watches his wake. A big wake can easily
capsize a small craft or damage boats or property along the
shore. Boaters are responsible for damage, injury or death
caused by their wake. Always cruise around docks, and anchor-
ages and narrow channels at minimum speed.

associated marine equipment in the state
represents the loss of millions of dollars each
year. These thefts are of serious concern to the
marine community; they are also a complex
problem for law enforcement statewide.
Although many boats are stolen by professional
thieves, there are precautions a boat owner may
take to protect marine equipment.
Maintain a list of all your boating equipment,
including the manufacturer's name, model

COLLEGE COACHES SWIM FORUM
SIGNS FIVE YEAR AGREEMENT
by Colleen Mahoney
(FORT LAUDERDALE--)The College Coaches Swim
Forum will be back at the Swimming Hall of Fame
for another five years. The agreement was signed
by Mayor Dressier, Forum Chair Bob Mowerson
and College Swimming Coaches Association
President Sam Freas at a ceremonial reception at
the weekly Kiwanis meeting at the Riverside
This year's 49th annual College Coaches Swim
Forum--a gathering of college coaches,
swimmers and divers--brought over 1400 visitors
to Fort Lauderdale. The Forum, which usually
starts in mid-December, is the kick-off event for
the start of the tourist season.
"Fort Lauderdale and the Swimming Hall of Fame
is where we (the Forum) want it to be! Great
facilities, weather and hospitality are just a few
reasons," said Bob Mowerson, a former
Minnesota coach. The College Coaches Swim
Forum, held in Fort Lauderdale for the past 49
years, is said to be the reason why the college
students have made Fort Lauderdale their winter
haven. It is "Where the Boys Are!"
What exactly is the College Coaches Swim
Forum? The Forum is a training session--a time
for college swim teams to see how the
competition is doing. There are clinics, nautilus
instruction, guest speakers, social events,
sunning, swimming and more swimming.
A high light of this year's Forum was the
American Record broken in the 200 meter medley
relay by the University of Arkansas at the Ed
Kennedy Classic Meet. "My boys, David Gean,
Ron Maddox, Jamie Pringle and John Ulibarri
broke the record by 1.2 seconds," said Arkansas
Coach Sam Freas.
Olympic three gold-medal-winner Rowdy Gaines
was in town to autograph over 200 Olympic
posters and speak to the Forum. Other' special
guests included: Jack Kelly, Jr., former president
of the International Swimming Hall of Fame and
president-elect of the United States Olympic
Committee and 1984 Olympic Team Manager
Southern Illinois University (men's and women's)
were the big winners in the Hall of Fame's 15th
annual Ocean Mile Swim, and the University of
Nebraska won the Mike Pepe Diving Contest.
The last stragglers of the College Forum are now
getting out of the pool and heading up north for a
new semester. Just think--spring break is only 6
In 1568 a letter written from a Spanish Mission,
located in what became the city of Miami,
mentions among other things the performance of
a play. The play, a religious comedy about the
flesh and the devil, was the first Hispanic theatre
to be performed in North America.
HISPANIC THEATRE: FOUR
HUNDRED YEARS LATER
by Wit Ostrenko
The Historical Museum of Southern Florida is
sponsoring the temporary exhibition, Two
Centuries of Hispanic Theatre in the United States
The exhibition which will run from April 1 through
May 15,1985 at the Historical Museum, located in
the Dade County Cultural Center at 101 W. Flager
St. in Miami, explores the development and
growth of Hispanic Theatre in United States.
This bi-lingual exhibition, developed by Nicolas
Kanellos of the University of Houston with a grant
from the National Endowment for the Humanities,
includes a video program, theatre costumes,
posters, play bills, and magazines from Hispanic
theatre. The Historical Museum will sponsor
performances and workshops, utilizing local
Hispanic Community resources.
From the late 1700s to the present, theatre has
played an important role in the Latin community.
"Two Centuries of Hispanic Theater in the United
States" explores this vibrant expression of a
people confronted with an alien culture.
The Historical Museum of Southern Florida is
open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m., Thursdays until 9 p.m. and Sundays from
noon until 5 p.m. The admission is $3 for adults,
$2 for children under 12, and children under six
are free. There is ample parking and the Museum
is within walking distance of the Government
Center Metro-Rail Station.

THE ARMY IN THE WATER
by Jim Sullivan
The U.S. Army became waterborne on August
8, 1917 when congress passed the River and
Harbor Act which stated in part: "It shall be the
duty of the Secretary of War (later the Secretary
of the Army) to prescribe such regulations for the
use, administration and -navigation of the
navigable waters of the United States."
Here in Florida the U.S. Army Engineers control
four navigable waterways. These are the
Intracoastal Waterway (east coast), Okeechobee
Waterway, Intracoastal Waterway (west coast),
and the Cross-Florida Barge Canal. Notes on
these waterways follow:
I. Intracoastal Waterway
-Fernandina (Georgia border) to Key West, 532
statute miles in length.
-Controlling depth 12ft. MLW (mean low water)
from Fernandina to Ft. Pierce, 10ft. from Ft. Pierce
to Miami, 7ft. from Miami to Cross Bank, Florida
-There are 51 bridges that cross this waterway, 13
of which are.fixed. All fixed bridges have a
vertical clearance of 65ft. above MHW(mean high
water) at center line, EXCEPT the Julia Tuttle
Bridge (36th St.) which has a vertical clearance of
56ft. above MHW.
-Stuart to Ft. Myers, 135 statute miles in length.
-Controlling depth of waterway is 8ft. MLW from
St. Lucie Riverto Ft. Myers via Route 1 and 6ft. via
Route 2 (routes 1 and 2 cross Lake Okeechobee.).
-There are 22 bridges that cross over this
waterway, 7 of which are fixed with vertical
clearances of 55ft. EXCEPT the FEC lift bridge at
Port Mayaca which has a 49ft. vertical clearance
in the raised position.
-There are 5 locks on the Okeechobee Waterway.
The recreation area at the St. Lucie Lock and Dam
is an excellent educational facility for children.
Recreation area consists of camping area, picnic
area, rest rooms, water supply, and boat
launching ramp. Visitors are welcome on certain
portions of the lock and spillways to watch the
boats entering and leaving the locks, there is no
charge for these facilities.
III Intracoastal Waterway
-Caloosahatchee River(Ft. Myers)to Anclote
River (Tarpon Springs), 150 statute miles in
length, controlling depth is 9ft. MLW.
-26 bridges, one of which is fixed (Sunshine
Skyway) with a clearance of 149ft.
-From the Anclote River north there is no inside
route until the eastern terminus of the Gulf
Intracoastal Waterway is reached (30 miles east
of Apalachicola, Florida).
IV Cross Florida Barge Canal
-St. Johns .River (Jacksonville) to Yankeetown
(Gulf of Mexico) 107 miles in-length.
-Work was halted on this waterway 13 years ago
because of environmental hazards.

COAST GUARD AND AUXILIARY
PROMOTE BOATING SAFETY
Another example of how closely the U.S. Coast
Guard and U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary work
together promoting Boating Safety was given last
Thursday night when a 41 foot patrol boat pulled
up to the docks of Flotilla 3-2.
Flotilla 3-2, Ft. Lauderdale's Auxiliary unit,
based at 601 Seabreeze Blvd. just south of the
Swinning Hall of Fame, was conducting a class in
Boating Skills and Seamanship when the vessel
The 41 foot patrol boat was scheduled to arrive
at 7:00 p.m. but while enroute from Coast Guard
Station Ft. Lauderdale, under the command of Lt.
Douglas Rudolph, the vessel was called upon to
assist another vessel in distress.
Arriving at 8:45 p.m. the Coast Guard vessel's
skipper, BN2 Burton and his crew, MK3 Shiltz,
MK3 Jordon, and SA Riggin, conducted a question
and answer period with the students of the class,
then invited the students aboard the vessel to
give them a first hand view of the workings of that
Coast Guard facility.
Because of the overwhelming positive response
'from the students toward being able to talk to
regular Coast Guard Officers and having a tour
aboard a Coast Guard vessel, Flotilla Commander
Rocky Quail stated he will try to arrange a similar
visit for all future classes.
Anyone interested in taking a Boating Safety
class write, call, or stop by Ft. Lauderdale Coast
Guard Auxiliary Base, McVey House, 601
Seabreeze Blvd., Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. 33316
The next class, Sailing and Seamanship, is
scheduled for Monday, March 11th, 1985 at 8:00
p.m. and will meet two nights per week for a
period of 5 weeks; -

Ask Big Al...
While running over to Bimini I ran into all kinds of
fuel problems. I have 2 large outboards on my open
Tuna Tower fishing boat. I have 2 side tanks and 1 floor
tank and 2 electric marine booster pumps. Pumping to
two separate fuel filters then to the motors. Well one
motor stopped on the way over and the other slowed
up. Cleaned the filters, but no help, finally hooked
motor fuel line directly to tank and started up and ran
over and back. Filters are new & booster pumps are
about 3 months old & run swell...HELP!!
Your problem is in your booster pumps, almost all
marine electric pumps have filters built inside them,
some are ceramic type, others screens. Open the
pumps and clean them. The filters can be disposed of
and use the outside filters that you can change easily.
Your tank may be dirty or have water in them. Clean
them & make sure the fuel pickup tube does not reach
the tank bottom where the sediment collects...hopethis
Can you recommend an honest competent
marine mechanic who will really do the work, I've
been taken twice and am desperate!
There are many good mechanics around. Ask
your friends if they are happy. Don't look for a
bargain. Good mechanics are always busy and
when you find one you may have to wait. It's
worth it. One other thing, take a motor or boating
course so that you know what's happening and
you won't get any double talk. You can do minor
adjustments and preventive maintenance. I can't
recommend anyone or any company, You will
find a good mechanic and when you do hang onto
him, he's worth his weight in gold. By the way
there are some great female mechanics.

DINING-OUT REVIEW: THE
HISTORIC BRYAN HOMES
By Nedda Anders
The man who came to dinner was Stephen
Birmingham, rich and famous author of best-
selling books about rich and famous people. His
hosts and hostesses were a dozen members of
the Book Group of South Florida, an association
of local publishing professionals, not nearly as
rich or famous as their guest. (In fact, some of us
are downright impecunious.)
Before we wined and dined him, a question, left
to me as president of the Group to resolve, was:
Where can we take Birmingham that will best
reflect the defined character of the local cuisine?
The area's foreign kitchens which have
proliferated all through Broward-Thai, Polish,
Mexican, Moroccan, Cuba, and Chinese, as well
as many chic French and Italian dining places--
were inappropriate. Cajun, California, and Tex-
Mex cuisines were just as unsuitable.
As it turned out, the only restaurants I could
find featuring native Florida cooking were either
cracker or soul-food. And how can you feed a
literary lion on a flowered plastic tablecloth?
So we shifted our focus. If we could not."put
some south (Florida) in the mouth" of our famous
guest, we'd at least feast his eyes on one of our

prettiest local landmarks. The Historic Bryan
Homes Restaurant it would be.
The homes were built in 1904 on the north bank
of the New River for two brothers who were then
among the most influential men of this region. But
fire and neglect in the decades that followed
caused the buildings to fall into disrepair. In the
late 1970s, the city of Fort Lauderdale bought the
homes as part of its plan to create a downtown
Historic District. Later, restauranteur Anthony
Gillette was authorized to create a restaurant on
this historic site, restoration he accomplished
with taste and elegance.
To keep the interior proportions intact where
possible, a series of chic and charming dining
rooms and sheltered verandas which look out on
the changing scenery of New River, or overlook
the handsomely landscaped grounds.
Our little party assembled in the lounge for
drinks, then with Mr. Gillette--the host who is also
executive chef--as tour guide, we oohed and
aahed our way through a series of enchanting
little dining rooms, enroute to our own reserved
quarters. Because our guest was due at the Main
Library for an after-dinner speech and
autographing party, we had settled in advance on
a light menu. The food was fresh, well-prepared,
and impeccably served by white-gloved waiters.
For all this swank, prices were very reasonable
and even the chintziest members of our coterie of
writers and editors was pleased--or at least not
displeased--with the bill. We ended our evening
with a sense that the literary and gastronomic life
was flourishing in Broward County.
Anytime you're in the mood to treat yourself to
some good food in an ambiance that even your
most sophisticated guest will praise, drop anchor
at the Historic Byran Homes restaurant. It's also
a great place for people who don't own a boat.
Prices get higher when you order in style from the
menu. Table d'hote dinners begin at $29.50 for
fish, up to $35.50 for prime sirloin steak. The
sumptuous meal includes vegetables, salad
maison, onion rings--Petatto.es.nna, and a
selection of appetizers such as smokeobrook- ..-
trout; crabmeat en route, and house Seafood Pie.
For dessert, the specialties include Praline Pie,
Black Cream Swan, White Chocolate Ice Cream
(made by their recipe) and Key Lime Pie. In Food
From Your Galley, you'll find my recipe for this
Our pleasant experience at the restaurant has
since been repeated because the Book Group now
meets there for monthly luncheons. More praise
from John Ziegler, publisher of the Waterfront
News and a member of the Book Group. He enjoys
the afternoon ambiance of the Bryan Homes
restaurant. It is a young and lively watering hole,
just the place to unwind and relax from a day's
boating or businessing. Drink selections are
priced $3 or more. You can walk to the lounge
from most sections of the business district, so if
you're not lured there for lunch or dinner, you can
make it for the happy hour.
