SPRING SHOW VIEWED A
by Muria Marion
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--Perfect springtime.
weather, a record number of exhibitors and a
substantial increase in attendance over last year
combined to make the second annual Fort
Lauderdale Spring Boat and Sport Show a
success, in the opinion of it's promoters.
As the only show of its kind to combine a sports
and nautical theme, The Fort Lauderdale Spring
Boat and Sport Show is a showcase for a variety
of boats and boating and sporting equipment and
Exhibitors reported excellent sales throughout
the four day show at Bahia Mar Hotel and
Yachting Center. Vistors were treated to a variety
of in water and on land exhibits from more than
200 exhibitors as well as an entertaining array of
special events including fashion shows, fishing
and cooking clinics, and water sports
Force E, one of the show's largest on land
exhibitors, featured in its 1,000 square foot
display a dive tank to demonstrate scuba diving
"We put on a show within our booth to draw
people in," says Skip Commagere of Force E, a
retailer of watersports equipment and apparel.
Force E also offers waterskiing, scuba diving and
"You have to think about the people who go to
the show. They want to have a good time so we
design our booth around that premise," he says.
Commagere reports that he did five times the
business at this year's show then he did lastyear,
and he was satisfied with last year's results. "We
like the show here in Fort Lauderdale. We see a
continuation of business even after it's ended,"
Commagere adds. "It's a great show, and we'll
definitely be back next year. This show is building
and it will keep getting better."
Chuck Irwin of Chas. P. Irwin Yacht Brokerage
Inc. agrees. "We thought the show was quite
good," he says. "We'd like to see it continue to
grow. We were in the show last year and we'll be
back next year."
Chas. P. Irwin Yacht Brokerage featured a $3
million in water exhibit with nine boats-ranging
from 36' to 56' "We sold one of the boats at the
show which is unusually good and we're still
seeing follow-up traffic from the show," Irwin
Bassett Boat Company recorded a successful
sales effort during the show, selling 12of the new
18' to 39' Sea Rays the company had on display.
"We were pleased with the show," says. Dick
Bassett. "The crowds picked up considerably
during the weekend. We had a goodSaturday and
an outstanding Sunday."
In all, Bassett featured a $600,000 plus exhibit
with its 17 Sea Rays.
Show visitors were also introduced to a variety
of innovative unique products and accessories
during the show including the new wave ski, a
combination surf and sail board, and a
simulation ski tank from Ski Rixen/Quiet Waters.
The Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat and Sport
Show combines a thrilling combination of special
events and exhibits for sea and sport lovers alike.
It has become the perfect introduction to the
spring and summer seasons.

THE SEMINOLES NOBODY
Between the 1860s and the early 1900s, the
Seminole Indians of south Florida experienced
their first period of prolonged peace in almost
half a century. Following a long series of conflicts
with white settlers 'and the United States
Government known as the Seminole Wars,
approxiamtely 300 survivors took refuge deep in
the hostile environment of the Florida
Everglades. Over 3,000 others had been removed
to government-established Indian Territory west
of the Mississippi River.
Until south Florida's major development
period began in the early 20th century, they would
live in realtive isolation in the Everglades. During
this time the Indians reestablished their own
culture, which had been fragmented by the
continuous warfare. The experiences had taught
them to mistrust whites in general and the
government in particular. Their main desire was
just to live in peace in their adopted home.
Those few whites who did penetrate the harsh
south Florida wilderness did so mainly for
adventure, to raise cattle, to trade with the
Indians, or as government agents. This time the
Indians and whites met peacefully and many long
and close friendships were formed.This exhibit is
based, in part, on the accounts of these non-
Indian observers. From them we can gain a better
understanding of the lives and culture of Florida's
Indians during this period.
Neither the romantic fighters of the earlier
1800s nor the colorful tourist attractions of the
1900s, these were THE SEMINOLES NOBODY
by Wit Ostrenko
MIAMI-- The temporary exhibition, The
Seminole Nobody Knows will be featured in the
Historical Museum's temporary exhibition
gallery from June 30-August 11. The lifestyle df
the Seminole Indians in South Florida during the
late 1880s is interpreted in this exhibition. During
the 1880s the United States government pursed a
policy of relocating the Seminole Indians to
reservations in Oklahoma, forcing the Indians to
retreat into the Everglades to avoid contact with
the white man and his policies. This exhibition
explores the Seminole experience of that time
through the major themes of customs and
ceremonies, dress, camps and clans, hunting,
and trade. The exhibition is 'made up of
photographs, artifacts and music from the green

games that are better played outside and those
that are better played inside. The Historical
Museum will have both-- from hula hoops to
board games, to games of yesteryear. Some of
them will have to be made before they can be
played and some of them will be just lying in wait.
You can take your pick. The only prerequisite is
that you are young at heart, as their will be
games appealing to every child from 4 to 94.
Admission to the Museum is required. The cost is
$3 for adults, $2 for children under twelve and
children under six are admitted free. For further
information call 375-1625.
SPEND THE NIGHT IN THE
MIAMI--- Don't worry, it sounded like a crazy idea
to us too. But after thinking about it for awhile, we
decided that yes, it is crazy---but it's going to be
fun. There is no other place in down town Miami
where you can spend the night in a Spanish Fort,
in the front yard of a pioneer's house, in a
Tequesta Indian camp or under a Seminole
chickee. From Saturday evening, August 3rd at7
p.m., to 9 a.m. Sunday, August 4th the Historical
Museum is going to stage one of its infamous
Camp Inns. Participants will be able to join the
Historical Museum's Jug Band, hunt for hidden
treasure, become a pirate or an Indian, and take
part in an honest-to-goodness weenie roast. This
exciting program of events is for children aged6-
12. The cost is $25 for members and $33 for non-
members. For further information contact the
Museum at 375-1625.

SEMINOLE EXHIBIT FEATURED
"Sculpture: Exploring Three
by Joy Bedick
FORT LAUDERDALE The Discovery Center
museum will host the participatory exhibit
"Sculptures: Exploring Three Dimensions" from
Saturday, June 1 through Sunday, July 7. The
exhibit, which features sculpture materials and
techniques from several cultures, is produced by
the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition
"Sculptures: Exploring Three Dimensions"
helps children and adults better understand the
world of sculpture through hands-on tools and
techniques. The exhibit offers a unique view of
sculpture in the world. Exhibit objects illustrate
the history, processes and materials that
sculptors have used throughout time.
Approximately 43 sculptures in the exhibit
have been loaned by the National Air and Space
Museum, the National Museum of American Art,
t he National Museum of African Art, the National
Portrait Gallery, the National Museum of Natural
History, art galleries and private lenders.
Additionally, 30 "hands-on" models and tools of
various sculpture techniques are included. A
variety of artists, from the carvers of Mt.
Rushmore to Alexander Calder, are featured on
panels within the exhibit.
The exhibit is comprised of three sections. The
first section, featuring panels and touchable
examples, addresses the basic characteristics of
sculpture, such as time, color, dimension and
Through contemporary applications of
traditional techniques, the second section
discusses modeling, carving, casting and
construction. Photographs of carvers from the
Washington Cathedral demonstrate the many
stages of sculpture and carving. Additionally,
photographs and models from the Johnson
Atelier in Mercerville, N.J., lead visitors through
the casting of "Shaping Up" by J. Seward
Welding, fabrication and advanced
technological sculpture techniques are also
included in the second section. For instance, a
special light sculpture and a highly participatory
sound sculpture are featured.
The third area of the exhibition illustrates all
sculpture stages of two diverse works: a Kanaga
mask from the Dogon tribes of Africa; and the
environmental process work "Light Levels" by
John David Mooney.
Special education components within the
exhibit include touchable "hands" and
"materials" benches; a sculptor's workbench on
wheels; text panels including artist's quotes, and
unusual photographs. A slide program about
additional sculpture processes has also been
included with works by Christo, Claes Oldenburg,
George Segal and others.
The exhibit was designed and produced for

INTERNATIONAL MARINE ARTS
SEEKS FLOATING GALLERY
A floating Marine Arts Gallery on the water is
being sought by International Marine Arts whose
headquarters is in Fort Lauderdale. Malcolm
Robertson, Chairman of Grande Toure
Corporation, parent company of IMA of which he
is also publisher, is actively looking for a floating
vessel of better than 70 feet with workable cubic
footage for Maring Art Galleries.
A new company on the marine marketplace
horizon, IMA publishes and distributes marine
art worldwide. IMA recently published the
Wooden Boat Show Poster '84 for the Newport
Yachting Center; Fort Lauderdale International
Boat Show Bahia Mar Commerative poster;
America's Cups' Franco Costas distribution has
been a long running project. Richard Lyon Clark's
latest book ON THE ROCKS, more of his great
nautical whimsey, will be published in the late
spring in "framable book-form". All that
Robertson will say about the format is "wait and
IMA's formation has actively been in the works
for the past two years with several internal
wholesale divisions and selected outstanding
marine craftspeople Robertson has been
developing. Formal one-man shows for both the
crafts and fine arts will be launched monthly with
a different artisian featured every two weeks.
"We are very involved in marine crafts as well as

"Marlinspiking, decoys, carvers, trapunto, half-
hull and model builders, scrimshawers, etc. are
all included in the marine arts field, and we are
developing wholesale lines with several
nationally known craftsmen presently."
"The vessel selected is intended to be
stationary in-the-water. We're not tripping-off to
Newport in the summer. We need a central
headquarters for our now growing wholesale
activity, as well as a marketing prototype to work
with the public and decorator markets on a
personal one-to-one basis for opinion and
feedback on our marketing development work.
The yet unknown vessel will also be the IMA
flagship for marine posters and limited edition
prints on a new franchising program with all
material in the field available from one source.
Our prototype in itself is revolutionary in art
marketing" Robertson continued.
"Fort Lauderdale, supported by south Florida is
the boating Capital, something for which the city
and local marine interests have never strongly
demanded recognition. Establishing our floating
gallery as HQ will help in this recognition- that's'
why we are here. There are several most
interesting potential sites with ease of public
access and parking. I have spoken to no one
about sites yet, let's find the proper craft first"

OUR COASTAL FOREST, THE
by Barbara Roberts
The sometimes inpenetrable mangrove forests
that line South Florida's coasts are particularly
attractive to water oriented outdoorsmen such as
canoeists, bird watchers and fishermen. Yet,
many people that travel past or through the
tropical mangrove woods know little about the
trees or the many interesting functions they play
in our environment.
Along the Florida coasts there are four species
of trees that make up these forests. Only three of
them are really mangroves they are called red,
black and white mangroves. The fourth tree is
called buttonwood and is basically prefers the
same habitat as mangroves, known as the
estuary, where freshwater meets saltwater.
These and many other species exist throughout
the tropics of the world.
The red mangrove is the most commonly seen
because it grows closest to the waters edge. This
is the tree with stilt-like roots, which it uses for
support. The seeds of the red mangrove are the
cigarshaped objects so often seen floating in the
tides. These seeds are already partially rooted
when they drop from the parent tree. Eventually
they take root and begin their own mangrove
island, either along the coastline, or on a sandbar
or shallow reef.
Closer to shore, behind the red mangrove, rise
the black and the white mangroves. Black
mangroves are easily recognized by the thin
sticks that project up from the ground or water
below them. These "pneumatophores" are like
breathing tubes and provide aeration for the
mass of underground roots. The black mangrove
trees bear flowers that smell sweet like honey
and attract many bees. In fact, the honey
produced by the bees from black mangroves is
excellent. These trees are sometimes referred to
as salt-trees, because leaves are often covered
with particles of salt. 1 ake a look sometime, you
can actually add the leaves to soups and stews
The white mangrove has no outstanding
characteristics like the red and the black.
However, it is usually found growing close behind
the black mangrove, further inland. Buttonwood,
which is not a mangrove, will grow on land. It has
a rough bark and is often home to ferns and
Each of these trees occupies a certain zone in
their community. One thing they all have in
common is that they are salt tolerant. Mangroves
tend to dominate their landscape, where as plants
and trees that require more fresh water cannot
As the tangle of mangrove roots begin to form
they catch debris that floats past. Fragments of
coral and shell, sand, bones of fish, seaweed and
leaves settle among the roots and actually begin
to form land. Mangroves are very well known as
land-builders. The organic material which
collects provides food for microorganisms which
in turn provide food for small creatures such as
shrimp, worms and small crabs. These animals
are the basis for a food chain, ultimately feeding
small fish (snook, tarpon, hog snapper), which
are eaten by large fish, which are eated by man!
Bird and animal life abounds in the mangroves.
Egrets, herons, ibis, pelicans and spoonbills
sometimes nest in the trees and raise their young
among the leaves. Insects such as bees, spiders
and mosquitos are also very much a part of the
mangrove environment sometimes chasing
curious trespassers away. Racoons come in
search of their favorite food, the coon oyster. You
would not be imagining things if you came upon
an alligator or crocodile basking in the sun.
Snakes often go unnoticed in the twisted
One of the natural enemies to mangroves are
hurricanes and strong storms. The trees get
pretty well destroyed and take many years to
regenerate. However the mangroves during these
times, provide shelter to the land behind them as
they absorb the heavy blasts of tidal waters and
strong winds. Man is the other enemy to the
mangroves. We often tear them down to provide
room for condos and waterfront communities.
Progress is inevitable, but we can help by keeping
a watchful eye on "the mangroves," the forest
that is so functional in supplying the oceans with
fish, a home for the birds, and recreation for us

ODDITIES OF THE MOON NO.2
by James E. Sullivan
The Moon and the Sun are continually changing
their positions relative to each other, the sum of
their gravitational forces on the Earth's tides
varies. When the Moon and Sun are lined up with
the Earth the tides are the highest (and lowest).
This occurs when there is a new Moon or a full
Moon and the condition is called syzygy (sizz-a-
gy). The tides are called "spring tides" from the
Anglo-Saxon word "springen" meaning to leap.
Do not go aground or strand your vessel during
When the Moon, Sun, and Earth are in a line they
work together'as a tidal team. Then the tide rises
higher and falls lower than normal.
When the Moon is at right angles to the Sun the
bodies engage in a tug of war. The rise and fall of
the sea is less than usual. "Neap tides" from the
Anglo-Saxon word "scanty" occur when the Moon
is in its first quarter and in its third quarter.

Opposite tide is
caused by centrifugal
At the time of half Moon the tidal range is least.
Two tides a day are the norm and they are
called semi-diurnal tides and are spaced about
twelve hours and twenty-five minutes apart.
However, many places such as the Gulf of Mexico
have only one low and one high tide a day.
The depth of the ocean, the presence of large
masses of'land, especially continents, the shape
of the coast, and other local factors contribute to
the size of tides. Here in Ft. Lauderdale the tide
range is 2 1/2 feet but the Bay of Fundy along the
north coast of Maine has a range of 40 feet.
Does a full moon have an effect on man? Yes,
like the tides the brain fluid is directionally
biased. Remember a full Moom passes over us at
Midnight no matter where we are in the world. The
ancients believed that the Moon influenced the
irrationality of man, luna-the Moon, produced
lunacy or intermittent insanity. During the next
syzygy check the police blotter.

TE AMO JOINS ARTIFICIAL REEF
May 16th saw the wooden sailboat Te Amo
("my friend" in Spanish) sunk at the Nova Deep
Water Site in 212 feet of water. Formerly docked
at Fort Lauderdale City Dock #203 on the New
River, Te Amo was now resting on her side at
Loran readings 14261.8 and 62106.6, reported Lou
Fisher with Broward County's Artificial Reef
Salvage work on the Te Amo was donated by
Ship, Captain and Crew Company and the
sailboat was towed to her grave by tugboats Hero
and Cape Ann. Joe Smiraga, president of South
Florida Divers, suggest if divers, fishermen and
others interested in helping Broward County's

Fisher, with the county program, said that
Broward was sending representatives to a ship
auction on the Miami River Jume 12th. There are
several derelic vessels there which would make
good reef material. Such additions to the county's
reef system could take some pressure off the
Mercedes I wreck site which has been
dangerously congested with divers since its
sinking by the county several months ago.
So serious is the situation at the Mercedes site,
that the diving industry of Broward County is
attempting to regulate itself and fellow
divers. Industry leaders want to see spearfishing
refrained from the wreck and develop some
kind of anchoring system established to reduce
risks divers on the Mercedes are exposed to.
So, the Te Amo, though too deep for divers,
continues the trend which will ultimately lead to
solution of the over used Mercedes. The public is
urged to cooperate with the diving community in
its efforts to make Mercedes safer and to
contribute monies and manpower to bring addi -
tions to the county's artificial reef.
Editor's Note: The Institute of Marine Science has
published an excellent resource text for divers
-and fishermen entitled: Shipwrecks and other
Artificial Reefs of Broward County, Florida. Along with

The beautiful beaches and waters of the Fort
Lauderdale area are best known as an American
vacation paradise. Less well known are the four
centuries of maritime history submerged off the
twenty-five miles of Broward County coastline.
The Marine Archaeological Advisory Council of
the Broward County Historical Commission will
host the Second Annual Greater Fort Lauderdale
Shipwreck Symposium on July 31-August4,1985.
Pier 66 Hotel and Marina will serve as the base for
the symposium. Sponsors will strive to bring
Broward maritime history a little closer to the
Treasure and archaeological exhibits, films,
lectures and workshops will be offered during the
four day symposium at the waterfront hotel
complex on Fort Lauderdale's Seventeenth Street
Causeway. "Some of the best wreck diving the
Gold Coast has to offer", including the Mercedes I,
say the organizers, will be run from out of the
Marine archaeologists and treasure hunters
will meet to debate and give their views on some
of the controversial issues surrounding
shipwrecks. Mel Fisher (world famous treasure
salvor and discoverer of the legendary 1622
Santa Margarita and Atocha and millions in
treasure is planning to be there, along with
shipwreck author Robert Marx and the "pioneer
of modern nautical archaeology, Harvard and
Nova University instructor, Peter Throckmorton.
Dr. Harold Edgerton, the M.I.T. professor of
photography who assisted in the discovery of
Monitor, and the inventor of the Pegasus
submarine, Dimitri Rebikoff will also be among
the panel of marine experts to surface at the
Second Annual Shipwreck Symposium.
Throckmorton and other specialists will teach
an Archaeological Diver Certification Course
(P.A.D.I. & Y.M.C.A.) to the first thirty applicants.
In 1976 the Marine Archaeological Advisory
Council was formed to assist the Broward County
Historical Commission in research, survey,
identification, and preservation of the area's
shipwrecks and marine artifacts. Over thirty-five
wreck sites have been located. While some are
considered historic landmarks, others are
advertised as public dive sites. Seventeenth to
nineteenth century cannons, anchors and
artifacts from the wrecks have been
electrolytically stabilized in a conservation
laboratory established by the all-volunteer
In 1984 the decision was made to share this
maritime heritage with the world, and the Greater
Fort Lauderdale Shipwreck Symposium was
created. An international forum was established
for archaeologists, treasure hunters, media and
sport divers to meet on a common ground. The
intense educational experience, luxurious
surroundings and actual shipwreck diving, made
the 1984 symposium a great success (see Bryan
Brooks' article about last year's symposium in
the September 15-October 15, 1984 issue of the
Waterfront News, page five).

Symposium contact the Broward County

ONE LAST DANCE
"Star Dancer" was to be a party boat. The 60'
ferro-cement vessel complete with dance floor
and waterbeds down below- was to ply the
Intracoastal Waterway. But Scott Swad never
completed the "Star Dancer". He was a better
dance instructor than shipwright.
Swads, frustrated with his backyard project,
donated "Star Dancer" to Broward County's
Artificial Reef Program. With the help of ship,
Captain, Crew, Inc. and Lyle and Son Towing, the
county sunk the cement boat off the Broward
coast east of the Bahia Mar Hotel in 220' of water
next to the recently sunk "Te Amo"
Ken Shake and Dick Counter with Ship,
Captain,. Crew, Inc. prepared "Star Dancer" for
sinking as the towboats "annie" and "Rowdy",
captained by Lyle Dotson and Mike Green towed
her out to sea. Shake and Counter broke out all
the glass of the window-like portholes and
.checked the through-hull valves in the bilge
which would later be opened to let in the sea.

LEMON SHARKS OBSERVED IN
BIMINI GIVING BIRTH
by Byran Brooks
In early May off the Island of Bimini
researchers from the University of Miami Marine
Biology Department observed Lemon Shark pups
born in the ocean for the first time. Many
scientists have seen shark pups born from sharks
that had been caught on the docks but apparently
no one has ever seen shark pups born in the
The researchers were operating from a Grant
given by the National Science Foundation.
Graduate Students and technicians living aboard
the Government ship Cape Florida were the ones
who discovered the pregnant 8 1/4 foot lemon
shark mother giving birth. The study and
research is being conducted by Dr. Sonny Gruber
from the University of Miami.
Students and technicians had baiteda long line
east of Bimini in the flats. In the morning on
checking the lines for sharks one of the large
females began giving birth to pups measuring
over a foot and a half long. The pups began to
arrive around noon and continued until past two
in the afternoon. Ten pups were born in all with
the last one stillborn. After the pups had all
arrived the mother rose from the sandy bottom
and slowly swam off to the deeper reaches of her
One of the researchers Michael Braun jumped
into the water and became a midwife of sorts as
he assisted the pups coming from their mother.
They arrived tail first enclosed in a sack and
attached by an umbilical cord. The baby sharks
looked like rubber balls on a string as they
attempted to free themselves from their mother.
The mother during this period was in a comatose
state and lying on the sandy flat bottom. Finally
the babies would break free and attempt to swim.
At first they couldn't swim and their attempts
landed them back on the sand. After a while they
seemed to get the hang of it and would swim off
toward the mangrove flats. The babies were
perfectly formed when born and needed no
further assistance or riourislimefit from their
Dr. Gruber has been conducting these studies
on sharks for some time. He theorizes that the
sharks are somewhat like salmon in that they
return to the shallow sand flats where they were
born when it is time for them to give birth to their
own pups. Dr. Gruber also feels the pups live in
the mangrove shallows for some time until they
are big'enough to survive in the deeper ocean.
The researchers would tag and measure each
shark caught and then release them. In this way
they hoped to show growth patterns and territory
ranges for the individual lemon sharks. Dr.
Gruber likes to study lemon sharks because he
says they are more unpredictable and hardier
then some of the other sharkslike the tiger shark.
Other studies and research included putting
tetracycline into the sharks to show growth rates.
Some of the sharks were implanted with radio
transmitters. Dr. Gruber advised that so far his
studies along this line showed that the lemon
sharks had a territory of around twenty miles.
Other researchers and students aboard the Cape
Florida did laboratory studies with smaller sharks
that were caught and kept.
This reporter was hired by Time-Life
accompany David Doubilet a world renown
underwater photographer as he covered the
research being done by the University of Miami. It
was a stroke of good luck that the first shark
caught on the morning we began to work was the
pregnant lemon shark who gave birth to her pups.
Once on the scene we jumped into the shallow
flats and David Doubilet began to photograph the
birth of the baby sharks.

As the sharks were born the ramoras
immediately attacked and ate the afterbirth from
the mother shark. In a comatose state she seemed
impervious to all the attention paid to her by the
researchers. After the ninth shark was born she
began to rise and swim away. The students felt
she would be okay, but then she dropped back to
the sandy bottom. Fearing that she had been hurt
by the trauma of being caught while giving birth
the students tied her to the side of their small
boat. They started up the engine and slowly drove
the boat with the mother shark's face pointed
forward so that water with oxygen would flow
through her gill slits.
After going for about ten minutes Michael
Braun untied the shark. She sank again down to
the sand. He then started to walk her around
forcing more water through her gills. Then he
noticed that she was giving birth to one more pup.
This final baby was stillborn. After the tenth pup
was born the lemon shark slowly rose from the
sandy bottom and swam away.
Dr. Gruber on hearing the news of the births
became happy for the students Who had
witnessed the births. Some of the baby sharks
were also tagged. If they are caught in years to
come on the same flats as they come in to give
birth to their own babies Dr. Gruber's theory
would be substantiated.
During the four days I was present the only time
I felt any apprehension was after the sharks were
tagged, measured and then released. But in each
case even with myself and David Doubilet in the
water the sharks only seemed interested in
swimming away. All of the lemon sharks caught
while I was present were pregnant females in the
eight to ten foot range.

SAILING, FISHING & NF
by Patrick O'Donnell
What do SAILBOATS and FISHING have in common
Fishing from sailboats is not new by any
means. It has been around for hundreds of years.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is similar-it has been
around for hundreds of years. But wait a minute!
A sailboat fishing tournament to benefit NF? You
are right if you're thinking this is an unusual
cause. NF ia a genetic disorder striking over 1000
babies a year and over 100,000 Americans are
currently affected by it.
It is an "unknown" disease with little outside
support. Most people are anxious to be
associated with "Save the Whales", benefit
"Walkathons" and other "popular" causes.
Sailors also support positive causes such as
these. But they go on step further. Sailors have
recognized a need in helping the "orphaned" NF.
Sailors are aggressive, unique people, people
that look at great challenges and want to conquer
them. Like winning competitive races, like single-
handed sailing around the world, sailors want to
help conquer NF.
Last year the Kiwanis Club of North Broward
sponsored Florida's first sailboat fishing
tournament to benefit NF. The results were
impressive. A small tournament advertised
mostly by word-of-mouth was able to bring
together a group of sailors that-not only had a
great time but- raised over $2200.00 to benefit NF.
This year we are planning to promote the sailboat
fishing tournament locally and-nationwide. We
have sent news releases and are planning to send
updates and comprehensive press kits to the
following (among many others):

more planned but need your help as a sponsor.

RACING YACHT LANDS THE "BIG
by Bill Rhodes
Catching a Blue Marlin from the most
sophisticated fishing vessel can be considered a
feat. What about landing one from a moving 40'
yawl? This was achieved recently during a
yachting race from St. Petersburg to Isla Mujeres.
The 500 mile race was sponsored by the Mexican
Government. It's a week long race and party
second to none ending at the beautiful Isla
Mujeres off the east coast of Mexico. There were
twenty three vessels entered in this 17th annual
Representing Lauderdale Yacht Club was the
Bermuda 40' yawl "Belisarius" owned by Hort
Soper. The crew was represented by big names in
racing: Chuck Van Vleit, Al Faraco, Dennis
Reeser, Eddie Hoefle and Charlie Sumner.
Recently the "Belisarius" was totally refit and
was ready for competition.
On May 1, during their fifth day at sea, the crew
put out a clear Psycho Squid on a Penn 6-0 with 50
pound test line. The terminal tackle was right with
"Big Al" (no relation to Grodsky) leading the way
with a thirty foot section of double line/bimini
twist. Attached was a ten foot shock leader of 100
pound test monofilament.
The vessel was about 60 miles from Isla Mujeres
in 100 fathoms of water. This is where the action
began. "Big Al" Faraco was just coming up out of
the bilge where he enjoyed his off-watch snooze.
While tying his shoe, he noticed the trolling rod,
big aroung as a pool cue, bent over double
unnoticed by the crew. Was there rum aboard?
Al bolted for the rod and reel but in the back of his
mind remembered the time his crew tricked him
into cranking a 5 gallon bucket through the waves
for an hour or so. The reel was nearly empty of
line when he took control. "Big Al" wa cautious
this time, he reacted more slowly but continued to
pump and crank with great anticipation.
After fifteen minutes or so, the pole was
transferred to some fresh arms. Chuck took his
turn. There was excitement in the air. An order
was hailed to head into the wind and "flog" the
sails. After the "Belisarius" was nearly
stationary, Chuck began to gain line more
Just as "Big Al" took over again, out of the water
lept a huge Bull Dolphin in the 50 pound class. A
few minutes later it was brought to the boat and
landed with a collapsable type gaff hook.
Plenty of groceries for the crew for the next few
days was provided. While the crew prepared to
fillet the monster, which barely fit in the cockpit,
Chuck let the Psycho Squid out again failing to
notice the line was uneven and slightly
backlashed on the reel.
After fifteen minutes or so, something struck the
lure. Chuck picked up the rod and the line went
limp. Then there was another strike and the lure
was dropped once again. The lure was
freespooled and picked up once again. An
experienced blue water angler like Chuck knew it
was time to set the hook.
The battle was on; species unknown, size-- large.
About 1/3 of the 50 pound line was stripped from
the reel before a backlash occurred. At this time,
the big fish stopped his streaking run, luckily, but
Charlie still had to grab Chuck around the waist to
keep him from being pulled overboard. "Big Al"
encouraged him to "crank like hell to gain some
Finally, the monster left the water and the crew
immediately identified it as a Blue. All hands took
turns fighting the Marlin as it jumped several
more times. Everyone was exhausted by the time
the large fish was brought.to the boat and cut
free. A truly magnificent catch from a moving
sailboat. The Marlin was eight feet long and
weighed nearly 100 pounds.
About a half hour later, a large Tuna was caught.
Two huge Barracuda and another Dolphin nearly
25 pounds were landed the same day just as the
crew finished the race.
After some relaxation, refreshments and wild fish
stories, the crew prepared for Saturday's race.
This mini regatta was a 20 mile race around the
island. For courtesy to the Mexican Government,
each yacht boarded twenty or more native
children to share a fun day on the water.
"Belisarius" won the event and had a fabulous
With the upcoming Sailboat Fishing Tournament
scheduled in November, one must wonder if this
sea worthy crew and yacht will enter. With their
experience, they could be tough to beat.

FREIGHTERS IN DUTCH:
FROST AND FLOWERS
by Issac Corkland
Last November, I was seated in the shade of a
palm tree on the beach at Lauderdale by the Sea.
In the distance, a large freighter was slowly
moving in the direction of Port Everglades. I felt
chilled by a cold northwest wind against my
Was it the cool breeze or the sight of the
freighter that dashed a moment of recollection
into my mind? In any case, I was viewing in
memory another vessel, at another time and
another place. It was more than a half century
ago. I had started to close a window in my law
office overlooking New York Harbor, in order to
shut out a cold western wind.
In front of me, on the opposite side of the
Hudson River there was a Holland ship bucking
the strong breeze in its attempt tp dock at
Hoboken. Then, as I closed the window, the door
to my office opened quickly admitting a highly
agitated man. He introduced himself as Mr.
Rynveld of the Holland Bulb Growers Association,
and thrust at me a bundle of papers. The
Hollanders were clients of another attorney in our
office, who was out of town that day.
I requested our client to be seated, at which
point he asked me to start a hundred law suits on
behalf of his Association against floriculturists
who refused to pay for the bulbs they had ordered
and received from Holland. The unanimous
complaint was that the plants produced foliage
but no flowers.
He watched me open the bundle. To each was
attached a bill of lading and order. These orders
read "FOB Buyer's Address." The bills of lading for
bulbs to be delivered to Hoboken, were dated
November 12, 1928 and signed at the dock in
Holland by an officer of the Dutch freighter.
At that instant, it was probably'the thought of
the dock in Holland and the vessel leaving for
Hoboken that reminded me of a story told me by
my uncle when I was a boy. He was only
seventeen when hehad earned his passage to the
USA by working on a Dutch freighter leaving
Holland by way of Iceland and Nova Scotia where
the vessel stopped to refuel. That November had
been so cold that his feet were frost-bitten while
he had been scrubbing the deck. His shipmates
had created heat by massaging his feet and limbs
with pieces of ice to keep them from freezing. I
then asked Mr. Rynveld whether his freighter had
taken the northern route. He nodded his head
I explained to him that under the terms of the
orders, his Association was responsible for each
shipment until it reached the buyer's address. He
probably knew, I thought, that the flower germ in
each bulb, no larger than a pinhead, could be
ruined by excessive cold. "The freezing weather
on that northern route.in November must have
killed those flowering germs. For that reason,
none of his shipments produced flowers."
I slowly stated that it would not be wise for him
to start lawsuits against these customers
because by so doing he would grant to each of
them jurisdiction to start counter claims against
his Association for the losses incurred because
the bulbs did not flower.
Handing him his papers, I told him, "I advise
you not to sue."
Mr. Rynveld then asked whether there were any
suggestions I wanted to make that would help.
them to continue in business in this country.
Without hesitation I responded, that they
should forget the freighters that took a northern
route, and make arrangements with ships plying
the Atlantic Ocean on the southern route via the
Azores, to Florida and the Carribean.
I went on to recommend the formation of a new
American company under the name of Holland
Bulb Distributors, Inc. This would prevent their
former customers from deducting their losses
against any future shipments they might buy. I
made a number of other specific proposals for the
new corporation's organization and functions.
Mr. Rynveld now appeared relaxed and
pleased. He thanked me for my advice which he
felt would keep them in business in this country.
He promised to find vessels that navigated the
Many, many years later, in 1980, while I was

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE TOPS
$100,000 FOR FIRST TIME
by Mary Brooks
"It's great," stated Burt Emmer, president of the
Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Chamber of
Commerce, when it was announced that the 1985
Membership Drive, completed on May 10,
generated $112,155 in new membership
investment. 350 volunteers sold 526 new
memberships, 303 of which represent businesses
outside the city limits of Fort Lauderdale.
"The results of the drive strongly indicate that
the Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Chamber of
Commerce is perceived as the business
organization for Broward County," Emmer further
stated. "This is clearly evidenced by the number
and geographical representation of the new

year viable," stated Deering. "The contributions
our volunteers make is critical to the Chamber's
effectiveness. We're super enthused and excited
about this year's effort which surpassed our
$90,000 goal. And, over 50% of the new
memberships are from outside the city limits of
Fort Lauderdale, which means overall, we are
truly of countywide interest."

wholesale produce market outside the Georgia
city, I noticed the sign "Agent for Holland Bulb
Distributors, Inc." I spoke to the proprietor who
told me that he had been doing business with this
concern for many years. The bulb distributors
were shipping him their products direct from
Holland by way of Florida and more recently via
Hoboken using the Holland American Line.
I then said to myself, "I must visit Port
Everglades to find out for sure thatthe Hollanders
had used my suggestion about a southern route."
My visit to the port that fall brought no
information about Holland bulbs ever having
been unloaded at that port.
I wondered whether I would ever be able to
verify that one moment of thought about my
uncle's cold voyage could have had any influence
on shipment of bulbs to this country. A friend
volunteered to help me check the facts at Port
Everglades.Together we interviewed David
Ruddell, Sealand Service's Port Everglades
Manager and my query was answered. Mr.
Ruddell advised that Holland bulbs had been
Atwater Yaht Servic
shipped to that port for ages until about eight or
nine years ago. Modern heating facilities made it
possible for shipments direct to Hoboken. The
Holland American Line therefore closed its office
at this southern port and appointed Rick Klein, an
associate, to answer inquiries.
At Mr. Ruddell's suggestion we met Mr. Carl
Thorsey of Rick Klein's office. His explanation
followed: that about eight years ago, air
conditioned containers about the size of large
trailers were innovated. The thermal control
could be set at a specific temperature, such as 60
degrees, and that temperature could then be
maintained from the time the containers left
Holland on the freighter, until they were delivered
to their final destination, irrespective of outside
weather conditions. After about a year, the
Hollanders adopted these containers for their
shipments of bulbs. The huge trailers could be
unloaded at Hoboken by using extra large
derricks. The trailers could then be picked up and
delivered in good condition anywhere in the
country without unpacking the bulbs. Mr.
Thorsey concluded his information by stating
that the Holland American Line, after having
used a southern route for years, finally resumed
the northern route to Hoboken.
It surely was gratifying for me to learn that the
Hollanders had used my suggestion so that they
could continue their business in the USA. For
more than half a century, they had spread their
flowering bulbs across our land where they had
never bloomed before. Perhaps that flood of
colorful spring flowers may be credited to my
moment of memory concerning the old Holland"
freighters and their frosty voyages.

COAST GUARD AUXILIARY
The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary......Just
what is it and who are we? Simply put, the
Auxiliary is the civilian arm of the U.S. Coast
Guard. Authorized and sanctioned by an act of
congress, our primary mission is to promote safe
boating. Only the Auxiliary can issue Courtesy
Marine Examinations (The seal of safety) and
only the Auxiliary serves under official Coast
Guard orders for search and rescue missions. We
are distinguished from all other boating clubs and
groups by our uniforms which we wear proudly.
We are different because we are members of the
Coast Guard family.
We number some 40,000 strong, brought together
by common bond of interest in boating and the
practice of safe boating. We are members of the
community, your friends and neighbors. Flotilla
3-2 is proud to boast that it's members include a
Doctor, two nurses, a lawyer, an airline pilot,
three teachers, a postal worker, five certified
SCUBA divers, and so on and so on, just plain
people. We carry out our primary mission in three
FIRST, is the Courtesy Marine Examination
program, in which we examine a vessel at the
owners, request, to help determine if the on board
safety equipment is in a safe, sound, and
serviceable condition, if it is, we will issue a
decal. If a problem is discovered, such as out
dated flares, only the owner is advised, If the
owner elects to correct the problem, we will then
issue a decal.
SECOND, is Safe Boating Classes, such as
Boating Skills and Seamanship, or Sailing Skills
and Seamship, which we conduct several times a
year. Our next BS and S class begins on July 22nd.
We even have a course for children called "Water
N Kids". Did you know that some charter
companies.will not charter a vessel unless a safe
boating course certificate is presented, or that
some insurance companies will offer a discount if
a certificate is presented.
THIRD, is Operations. This is where we, under
Coast Guard orders, perform surface operations
such as Patrol, Safety patrol, Harbor Patrol,
Search and Rescue, Regatta Patrol (like the
Christmas parade or the Raft race). We even have
Air operations with aircraft flying missions.
One other area that I should mention is what we
call the Fourth Conerstone...Fellowship. Another
term could be applied-..FUN. Like the St. Patrick's
day party or the 4th of July Bar-B-Que, or when a
bunch of us get together and take half a dozen
boats for a cruise down to the Keys, or sometimes
it's just hanging out at the base and enjoying the
friendship of the members. How many times have
you had a problem and there have been 40 or 50
people ready to help you out, that's why we call it
Something really special and the reason that my
wife and I joined is togetherness. We do it
together and we're both equal. We learn together,
train together, crew together, and when we're
skipper qualified we'll probably skipper together.
Although I suspect that Orwell's theory will
prevail in this case (all Skippers are equal only
some skippers are more equal than others), She'll
want to be skipper all of the time.

When sanding, painting, or varnishing a boat,
one must be aware if the chemical and toxic
vapor exposure that exists. These fumes can be
inhaled by the lungs and some chemicals will be
absorbed through the skin into the blood stream.
The eyes can also be irritated and damaged. How
much protection from these chemicals is
necessary to avoid immediate illness and prevent
long term disease?
The type of paint or varnish used and how it is
applied will determine what type of safety gear is
needed. Each can of paint or varnish has all the
ingredients listed and how the product can be
applied safely. It is extremely important to read
and follow the instructions listed on each can. Z-
Spar Paint and Varnish, for example, recommend
forced air ventilation, fresh air masks and clean
protective clothing when using their product.
Also, in confined areas, adequate forced
ventilation is necessary to prevent a dangerous
concentration of vapors which can cause death
from inhalation or explosion. If this product

Having guests aboard your boats? The Coast Guard Auxiliary
reminds skippers to acquaint them with the "ground rules" before
the cruise begins. They should know where the lifesaving devices
are located and how to use them. At least one passenger should
be familiarized with operation of the boat, in case the skipper
is disabled or falls overboard. Safe boating is no accident.

to not use this product if there is existing lung
problems or any type of breathing difficulties
experienced by the use of this product. When
spraying Awlgrip (or any other paint with similar
chemical composition) a positive pressure air
supplied respirator is a must. If breathing
difficulties occur after any spray painting
operation, see a doctor immediately. Spray paint
hoods, goggles, suits and even booties are
available and necessary for protection.
Other safety products are also available for
protection. A light weight, disposable Marine
Respirator Mask is sold to protect against lung
damaging dust from asbestos, silica, sandblast,
carbon black, paint and plastic dust, latex paint
and insulation, use this mask when sanding
cured paints, plastic filters and resins. It is not to
be used in spray paint operations. Most are
familiar with the light weight, disposable Particle
Mask that is available, similar to the masks used
by Dr.'s and nurses in the hospital setting. Particle
Masks blocks our large particles only such as
glass dust, plaster of paris, and limestone but will
not protect against asbestos, silica or any other
toxic dust, fumes or vapors. This Particle Mask is
not to be used in spray paint operations.
Remember, constant exposure to organic
vapors and paint particles can cause
deterioration of body organs, respiratory and
other vital function impairment with toxic effects.
We use these chemicals to beautify and protect
our boats and yachts. Take the extra time and
effort to use the proper safety gear and protect
your body, too.

BOATERS SOBERING UP TO
NEW DUI LAW
Forty-one boaters died in marine accidents in
Florida last year; two fatalities occurred in
Broward marine accidents. In response to these
deaths and the 724 other reported boating
accidents (most of them alcohol related) in the
state, the Florida State legislature created a new
law which specifies fines and penalties for
driving a boat while under the influence of a drug
such as alcohol (DUI-boating) and DUI-
Since the drunken boating statue was enacted
eight months ago, over 25 persons have been
arrested for DUI-boating in Broward County.
"Now we have exact procedure, exact terms,
exact fines," stated Sgt, Bill Bushong with the
Broward Sheriff's marine patrol.
While not making spot checks for drinking on
boats, marine law enforcement officers are
watching for reckless behavior, like speeding,
then stoppint the vessel and looking for evidence
of drinking. Says Capt. K.B. Clark of the Florida
Marine Patrol, "The intent of the law ig not to take

SAFETY ON THE WATER
by Bill Lange
Just think how lucky you are! When you need
help urgently you might get the U S Coast Guard
on scene in time.
A typical case I listened to in March: a
pleasure vessel fifteen miles East of Miami called
USCG on Channel 16 due to a seriously injured
person on board. The seas were running maybe
fifteen feet. The call was heard at 1352, at 1357 a
USCG helicopter was on the way, by 1410 the
chopper was in the area but due to overcast and
boat doubt as to exact location the Search and
Rescue chopper could not report on scene until
1422. A remarkably rapid and satisfactory time of
only 30 minutes since the call for help.
So why that undersireable "might" cited for
The problem is that boaters are clobbering up
Channel 16. You can assure yourself better safety
by getting others to use Channel 16 properly. That
is the international distress channel for VHF.
Let's go back to the case and note some of the
To locate the distressed vessel was not easy.
With near panic on board as the crewperson
seemed likely to die, the skipper had his hands
super full and communication was at first
somewhat inexpert. Seas were very rough and
the helm not easy. Luckily the VHF range was not
too far and most messages were fairly audible
and there was a crew lady who became an instant
expert on the mike, perforce.
For the chopper to locate the white 37 foot
sailboat in the limited visibility and with many
whitecaps took several RDF tries. The boat was
difficult to hear on Channels 12 or22 so USCG had
to work on 16 and announced a "Silence,
MAYDAY." Then Base Miami had to slowly dictate
instructions to the distressed boat relative to
possible use of a rescue basket on cable from the
chopper. Meanwhile trying to get details on the
injured person. Then another USCG aircraft with a
flight surgeon on board also needed a long count
-.jto RDF"the b6oafas a fl~re from the boat:vas n6t
seen. The boat asked the flight surgeon for
guidance on treatment.
Since there was doubt as to whether the patient
hoist could be safely accomplished due to the
sailboat superstructure a USCG cutter was
dispatched from Miami. By 1430 that cutter
needed an RDF long count to assure a direct
course to the boat. By 1515 the rescue basket was
on the boat but the patient was uncooperative
and unmanageable. The surgeon suggested
another person into same basket but the
chopper saw the on deck problems and had to pull
off. By 1525, despite rough seas, the cutter
arrived on scene and got a man aboard. By 1531
this corpsman provided diagnosis on the very
uncooperative patient. With another chopper
airborne to replace the original one low on fuel,
the cutter led the distressed vessel back toward
Miami without risking patient transfer with an
ETA of about 1615.
To get the injured person ashore-or making it
personal, to get you out of the water if your boat
had suddenly sunk-- depended on good
communication on Channel 16. Yet the USCGBase
Miami had to announce "Silence, MAYDAY"
repeatedly as various VHF stations transmitted
and thus "walked on" the distress rescue work.
You, the reader, must help "pass this word"--
otherwise the Search and Rescue which you'll
possibly need urgently might not arrive.
Just listen on 16 for the difficulties in
establishing two-way communication, for the
untrained and inexpert efforts, for the inadvertent
or sometimes gross conduct. The USCG is fully
occupied with its work; I heard 7 potentially
urgent cases in 2 1/2 hours on a Sunday night. So
they should not take time to handle wrong VHF
usage. The FCC rightfully treats illegal matters,
and is making a record.
Lots of the Channel 16 difficulty comes from
inadvertent keyers of a VHF mike. They have not
understood the seriousness of distress matters
nor the far-ranging impact of pushing that
button. Sometimes they either are dumbjohns or
just don't care and think it is macho to talk long-
distance trucker CB. There are strong reasons for
using the proper marine radio procedures on VH F
just as if you were using overseas radio. Lack of
procedure or loose language greatly reduce the
likelihood of getting your word across. Maybe
you have a loose passenger or the crew are all
fizzed up? Even an apparently able skipper has
been heard to derail on 16 because the bridge did
not open, or someone ran over his fishing gear.
Far better to get the number and complain on a
working channel. The speeder hasn't got his or
her ears on"; the bridgetender radio is not
working, or is in the maintenance shop, or TV is
more interesting, or the bridge is on, time
So now the USCG is advising "radio check"
callers that FCC rules prohibit using Channel 16
for this type of testing call. It will probably take a
year to clear this interference off 16 but you can
help if you will pick up the request by asking the
vessel to shift to a working channel. Help the
caller but remind that radio checks on 16 are no-
no. Channel 16 is solely for "Calling" (with set
rules as to how to do that) and for "Distress."
Some boats, some bridges, commercial
establishments and the marine telephone
operators will respond and give the check most
pleasantly. Channel 26 and 84 are very kind in this
respect; that telephone operator assures a
pleasant check being a pretty voice and having
an excellent radio tower so they can even reach
way offshore. Getting this increasingly frequent
call off 16 will mean that someone has a far better
chance of hearing that gasped MAYDAY for help
when water is found to be deep in the bilge, or
there is a blast in the engine compartment.
Granted that some of the interference is by
chance. A boat with defilade below some horizon
or object could fail to hear the long count in
progress yet the USCG high antenna or aircraft
would receive the full blast of that interference. In
general, there is unnecessary "walking on others"
because operators are listening a bit. I can reach
east of Delray, east of Great Isaac, south of Key
West; but if I were in the ICW I would not know it,
since I'd likely not hear them.
What can you do to calm the frustrated
communicators and to lift the barrier curtain off
Channel 16? Cases:
-the are you there, pardners?": who gives no
clear station signature so the receiver(and even
the pardner) is not positive that a working
channel number was heard. Usually followed by
-the open mike and whistling.
-the call for marine telephone when that good
service could be contacted directly on their
working channel(near here 26, 84, 25).
-often in shifting to a channel both stations move
and blast out, thus stepping on each other, and
usually eventually reverting to 16 to start it all
again. Make it clear who will open first on what
channel after the shift. Get a "roger" since often
one station suddenly remembers it does not have
the channel. Or what if the chosen new channel is
full of some windy yack?
-it is true that VHF allows vessel-to-vessel talk,
but it is not CB, and even the lonely midnight
fisherman can help by taking breaks from that
channel 70, 68, 06, 09 or whatever very lengthy
palaver. Be sympathetic, but also short.
-especially in season the calls to marinas for
berthing are frequent. Some marinas do an
excellent job and give a working channel atonce.
Berthing is often not available and some discuss
this on 16. Other marinas seldom if ever answer
so the boat keeps on calling (even after
marina/motel hours). 1530 to 1730 is a busy time,
unfortunately that is often a vessel in distress
time. Please do whatever you can to move this
-an increasing problem is the currently volume of
"where are the refreshments?" rodeos. In
particular several dock-side watering points,
with often four-deep and five-wide rafted visitors,
are called without regard to the timing or
repetition, and in turn they seldom reply. Many of
the boats are just off the dock area......maybe100
feet. The handicap to channel 16 is extreme. I
suggest to management that you advertise your
working channel, provide flyer type handouts,
reply to the calls, maybe arrange some visual
-while it may not seem very long, the use of
improper words takes a lot more time. Airline
pilots do not do it, skippers are handicapping
themselves by using telephone or CB wordage.
1)Delete the "over and out"; use one or the other,
2)Omit the "do you read me?"; use one word
3)"Go to 68" is no good since possibly the other
station has no 68 or did not hear you; result you
both flop around some more on several channels.
4)Use "Wilco" to shorten the action and make
clear that you have understood and are
5)0mit the "come in, please". It is polite; "over" is
more so to all concerned.
6)Learn the phonetic alphabet: at least for your
vessel's name and for your name.
7)Keep that MAYDAY format at your radio post,
so that the most vital information goes out first.

ASK BIG AL
My boat is really something. I come out some
days and it starts right up. Other times nothing. I
mean NOTHING: no lights, no instruments. The
battery is fully charged, cables are clean and the
practically new starter won't even turn over.
I don't know if you have a battery switch in the
starting circuit. But the ignition and starter cable
are on that terminal. It could be either a defective
switch or a bad cable. Bad contacts could cause
intermittent starts. You can check with a jumper
cable from the battery direct to the starter. With a
good battery and starter the engine should start.
Any way of finding a leak in my engine, or
hoses, or heat exchanger? Water just disappears
over night and I see no leaks anywhere.
The easiest way of finding a leak in any engine
is by using a pressure tester. By pumping up.
pressure-a leak in a hose or water pump or heat
exchanger or a freeze plug will show up. Putting
in a soluble dye will help pinpoint a leak.
My bilge is always oil-soaked. I clean it out but
it comes back. My engine must leak some where
as I use oil everytime I go out.
First clean the bilge thoroughly, very dry and
clean. Then make sure the oil level is upto the full
mark. Spread clean paper or toweling under the
engine and run the engine until oil drips show on
paper. It could be a pan gasket, the oil filter, or
bearing seal. Even a valve cover gasket. The
location of the oil drip will help show you where
and what is leaking.
-My port and starboard lights keep burning out.
Changing the bulbs is a horror. Rusty and
corroded... I've cleaned them but. this has
happened twice this year. Any suggestions?
Your gaskets are leaking salt water and rain
into your lights. If lights are corroded and bases
bad. Get new ones and put heavy petroleum jelly
around the bulb and sockets. If the lamps are
good new gaskets will do the job. Do this right
away as navigation lights are a must.
