COAST GUARD USER FEE
The U.S. House Merchant Marine & Fisheries
Committee will.be meeting during the third week
in September to consider $100 million of "cost
recovery" for services provided by the Coast
Guard to boat owners and for. Coast Guard
inspections of the boating industry. The Coast
Guard proposes charging all boat owners an
annual fee--probably in the neighborhood of $20,
according to Jeff Napier with the National Marine
Manufacturers Association--whether or not they
receive Coast Guard services. Fees would also be
charged to boat manufacturers for "inspection
services". Napier labels that, "Coast Guard
regulation of the boat industry".
"My concern is that this proposal would not in
any way add a penny to the Coast Guard budget,"
confessed Merchant Marine & Fisheries
Committee Chairman Rep. Gerry Studds (D-
Mass.). However, fellow committee member, Rep.
Silvio Conte (R-Mass.) sponsor of the bill
countered," The days of free lunches are
over...We are talking about peanuts here, nickels
and dimes, I can't believe that (the committee) is
going to have any witness up here testify against
At a preliminary house committee hearing
earlier in the summer debate focused on just
who would benefit from the Conte bill (H.R. 1936).
Chairman Studds: "If the Administration were
successful in persuading Congress to adopt $100
million or S200 million for the Coast Guard, they
would simply reduce their budget request by that
much. We wouldn't haveany more money for the
Coast Guard." Coast Guard Commandant James
S. Gracey, when asked by the committee whether
his agency would benefit from user fees, stated; "I
don't perceive any direct special benefit to the

BIRCH PARK'S FUTURE
by M.G. Swift
One hundred and eighty acres of coastal strand
in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, Hugh Taylor Birch
State Pa!k has a future to be decided upon. Ever
since the train concession pulled out and the City
of Ft. Lauderdale was found to be unloading it's
tree-trimmings there last year, the State of
Florida has become aware of Birch Park's "slide
into disrepair", as the Miami Herald pu it .
At a hearing in August before the state's
Natural Resources Parks Division, Broward
Countians reviewed three alternative concepts
for redevelopment. Ranging from passive to
active utilization, the three possible future
schemes brought to the fore the environmental
concerns and the recreational needs of the area's
growing human population. The passive/ecolog-
ically weighted concept would trim d:"'v capacity
from 3,500 to 2,500. T e loop r(ad would be
replaced by a jogging and bike trdfi: The park
would be a nature preserve for migratory birds
and native vegetation with an environmental-
education center if plan "A" is adopted by the
Another alternative; reflecting several
suggestions from 1984's Marine Charrette, would
be an active/recreation oriented utilization of the
state park. A marina basin with a bric-a-brac &
mangrove perimeter would accomidate boats
from the Intracoastal Waterway. The park's
capacity would be at least 7,000. Native ve( station
would be restored and the environmeital-
education center would be built in this plan, too.
The loop road would be retained.
A middle course is outlined which is less active
than the active plan but more active than the

parties with opinions or ideas on Birch State Park

STATE CABINET TO ADDRESS
NEW SUBMERGED LAND LEASE
A proposal before the Governor and the Cabinet of
the State of Florida would allow the State to
convert licenses to use submerged state land into
leases with a seven percent fee on gross
revenues. This fee would be levied upon marinas,
boatyards, yacht clubs, restaurants, hotels,
condominiums, any entity now licensed by the
state to use submerged state land in enterprise.
The proposed lease fee structure will be
considered by the Governor and Cabinet
September 17th in Tallahassee.
"We encourage members of (the marine
industry) to take an active role in opposition to
this percentage of revenue," declared the Marine
Industry Association of South Florida; "Approval
of a fee structure based upon a percentage of
revenue will play havoc with not only waterfront
marine businesses but any submerged land
lessees which includes yacht clubs,
condominiums, and restaurants."
The state presently receives 5% sales tax on
revenues generated within submerged land lease

BUBBLES UNDER PORT
by Bryan Brooks
The fantasy was going to come true. All my life I
had planned and schemed it. Now it can come
true. Close Port Everglades. Call it what it was
before, Lake Mabel. Open up New River Inlet.
Here's my chance. Well at least part of my
Being third generation Ft. Lauderdale I had
grown up with the stories and myths of our city as
it was and like all romantics wanted to see it that
way again. I always had this crazy dream of
taking a bull dozer down on the beach by the
South Beach Parking lot across the street from
Bahia Mar where the small jetties remain to this
day. It's the last evidence of the original New
River Inlet that silted up during the'26 Hurricane. I
would, at least in my dreams, dig open the inlet to
where the ocean could come into the old New
River Sound. It would give a direct shot down
town to New River. Clear water would be seen
again downtown during high tide. Fish would
come back and all would be well. About this time I
usually wake up from my dream and come back
to reality. I could see the headlines now, "Crazed
Dive Shop Owner Dragged Off Bulldozer Trying to
Reopen New River Inlet." I wonder what the
people in Bahia Mar would think. Close Port
Everglades and open New River Inlet, well sort of.
This is heavy stuff.
On Saturday at 11 AM October 5th United Way
of Broward County will stretch 43,000 people from
one end of Broward County beach to the other.
The people will be holding hands and a rather
long red ribbon. The only problem the organizers
could think of was what would they do in getting
their ribbon across Port Everglades. Answer, a
few good divers. Your County needs a few good
men AND women, about 300 to be exact.
On that fateful day we will lay down line from
Point of America's on the north side of the jetties
to the Navy base on the south side. About 150
divers from each side will start down the line
toward the middle of the channel and hopefully
bump into each other. United Way has made
application to close off the Port for about 90
minutes while this band of hardy river rats head
down the line one at a time complete with red
ribbon to their destiny on the bottom of Port
Everglades or Lake Mabel, whatever.
The organizers of this probably the biggest
thing that the county will ever do together-are
dead serious about it and so are we in the diving
industry. If you are an experienced diverwith lots
of low visibility diving in your background and
are interested in doing something for your county
please call UnderSeas Sports 564-8661.
Remember that this will not particularly be a
scenic dive. On a practice run the visibility with
all the divers in the water was zero, that's rightthe
big 0, nothing.
The good news is that we will be in the water at
high tide and slack current and the Port will be
closed to traffic for 90 minutes. Also each diver
will be on a line complete with red ribbon.
This ia an opportunity for all segments of the
community to act together doing something
positive for a change. The Ft. Lauderdale Police
Dive team lead by Captain Lewis Williams will be
in charge of the police and fire dive units that
wish to participate. If you fall into that category
call him at 761-5484. They will be taking the north
part of the line and coming from Point of
America's. Civilian divers such as Instructors,
Divemasters and very experienced divers call me
at the shop and we'll be coming from the Navy
base on the south side of the inlet. Each fourth
diver will have a dive flag so that the public.will
get a view of two trains coming together at the
center of the Port. When complete, the flags will

ARTIFICIAL REEF PHOTO
by M.G. Swift
The Artificial Reef Coordinator for Broward
County, Steve Somerville, has told the Waterfront
News a very special photography contest is
taking place. The Fort Lauderdale Chamber of
Commerce will award $50 to the person who
contributes the color underwater photograph
(either print or slide format) the chamber feels
best depicts diving on one of Broward's artificial
reefs. Not only that but, the selected photograph
is planned to be used on the cover of the
upcoming "Marine Guide of Broward County".
Approximately 15,000 copies will be distributed
The winning photographer must allow
publication and one-time copyright privileges
for the use of the photograph by the Chamber of
Commerce. Credit will be given to the
photographer in the "Marine Guide".
All entries must be received by the Broward
County Erosion District (Artificial Reef Program)
955 S. Federal Highway, 4th Floor, Ft. Lauderdale,
Fl 33316, no later than Friday, September 27, 1985.
The photographs must be accompanied with the
owner's name, address and phone number. An
attempt will be made to return all non-winning
photographs; however, neither the Erosion
Prevention District nor the Chamber of Commerce
guarantees a safe return.
Just as a side-bar. to make it easier for all those
underwater photo bugs, Somerville and his crew
of ship sinkers will be adding a couple oil rigs to
Broward's artificial reef off the Hollywood coast
near the Diplomat Hotel. Only problem is that
these rigs won't be on the bottom till October 3rd
(six days past the photo contest deadline).
However, even as we write, salvagers from Ship
Captain and Crew, Inc. of Fort Lauderdale are
trying to raise a 65 foot vessel lost during a
tropical storm recently in the Bahamas. Funding
has been arranged by the Create-A-Reef Fund, the
Broward County Dive Industry Association, and
the Apha Club If salvaging it successful, it will '-
be sunk between the second and third reefs
somewhere north of Sunrise Blvd. in about sixty
feet of water.

TWINS IN GUINNESS BOOK OF
WORLD RECORDS AGAIN
James and Jonathan diDonato, the Tiger Twins,
who swam 40mi earlier in the. summer, (see
Waterfront News July 15-August 15, 1985, page
16) have been notified by the publishers of the
Guinness Book of World Records that their swim
is a "new world record for long distance butterfly
swimming" and has been accepted for inclusion
in 1986 edition.
The Tiger Twins are no strangers to the famous
record book; having first established a long
distance butterfly world record on August 27,
1980. The diDonato Brothers swam ten miles on
non-stop butterfly and were included in the 1982
edition of the Guinness Book. They expanded
upon their record with a 1983 swim of 28.5 miles
(see the 1984 or 1985 editions of the record book).
James and Jonathan diDonato, who attempted to
swim from the Bahamas to the Florida Coast June
21 & 22, 1985, pulled out of the water only twenty
miles east of the U.S. mainland because of
lightning. That attempt, in addition to other
swims around Manhattan Island and swimming
to Liberty Island in New York harbor, was,
undertaken as a fund raising event for the Statue
of Liberty restoration project.

IF ONLY COLUMBUS KNEW
by Captain Frank Papy
I would say the Columbus Day Regatta
weekend rates along with the sailing family's
summer vacation. I think I can make this
statement because from about Palm Beach to
Marathon, Florida there are quite a few boats that
the only time they go out is for the Columbus Day
Regatta and the summer vacation cruise.
I have been sailing in the Columbus Day
Regatta and social event since 1967. I have only
been registered in the race five times. The other
times I just sailed along and I haven't missed one
of these unique events yet. Last year there were
about 1,100 boats registered and an estimated
4,500 vessels that came along for the fun, and I
mean fun! For those who don't know it's the
weekend around the 12th of October. You leave
Dinner Key marker on Saturday around 9 a.m. and
sail down Biscayne Bay about 20 miles to Elliott
Key, anchor and sail back on Sunday.
There is every type of boat you can imagine. To
accommodate these unusual boats the race
community created categories like the
gunkholing class and dowager class for boats
thirty years and older. You can really see some
strange rigs. Last year I saw a 55 foot cigarette
type powerboat-with a big A-frame mast that
folded down on the bow when not in use-sailing
518 W. Las Olas Blvd.
Pt. Lauderdale, FL 33312
along with a big spinnaker up. Ihe amount of
boats that gathered for this celebration last year
was estimated at about 5,500. quite a sight to see
on Biscayne Bay. You can foret about talking on
the VHF radio just listen and laugh at the antics.
One year, I heard a lady on a sailboat that was a
ground talking to the Coast Guard in distress.
They asked how bad is she a ground? You know
what is the trim of the vessel? She replied, its'
trimmed with teak.
Another time, the Coast Guard was asked to do
a medical evacuation of a sick person with a
helicopter from the boat; you know how the Coast
Guard talk in that technical language be advised
that...ect...ect...they asked the boat, what is the
type of illness of this person? The captain of the
boat replied, she has had to much to drink and she
is up in the bow with a gun, going to shoot
everybody. The pilot of the Coast Guard.
helicopter broke in on channel 16 and said, I ain't
taking that. crazy woman on this helicopter.
Later on the same day one boat called a friend
and said he was sailing and had a problem: the
spinnaker was caught in the mizzen mast on the
boat sailing in front of him, picture that in your
,mind. A big oil company used to bring a barge
down with a big tent on it and a dance band.
Anybody could take the dinghy over and join in
the festivities, but times have changed. In the
1960's a lot of the crews had t-shirts just alike. In
the seventies, a lot of the crews wore nothing at
all, what a show.
Watch out for the flying waterballoons;
anybody and everybody is vulnerable. After the
race on Saturday you anchor or raft up with some
other sailors because you can't find your friends
in the maze of boats and haze of some beers or
rums or whatever. Watch the spinnaker riding,
wind-surfing, waterskiing, ultralights putting on
a show...hot air balloons and 35 foot Bill Healey
boat (see Waterfront News, March 15-April 15,
1984, page one; and August 15-September 15,
1985, page seven) that comes by with about 60

Famous boat builders and sailors like Dave
Westfall, Bill Souerell, Lee Creekmore and
sailmakers: Brad Mack on the Susanne (watch
out for the Ben Gun), Charly Fowler, Marc Woods
and Fred Bremmen. There are three bia charter
sailboats out of Miami that give up their trips to
sail down with friends and party: Bruce Purdy on
the Sea Explorer and Morning Star, and Steve
Salum on the Sundance, they are quite a sight to
see with about 20 or 30 on board each one.

Sunday afternoon there are a lot of tired,

TIPS FOR THE RACE
1. Anchor in Biscayne Bay Friday night.
2. Take pre-cooked food.
3. Take warm clothes, last couple of years it's

BAHIA MAR TO HOST SAILBOAT
by M.G. Swift
Anglers will be sailing for Bahia Mar November
16th to weigh-in their catch in the 2nd Annual
Sailboat Fishing Tournament. Sailors of mono- &
multi-hulled sailboats are urged to enter this
benefit tournament for Neurofibromatosis (NF or
"Elephantman's Disease"). Co-sponsoring this
charity marine event with the North Broward
Kiwanis Club are the Florida Off-shore Multi-hull
Association and the Hollywood Sportsmen's
Fishing while under sail is an experience not to be
missed. The angler must know how to tack; the
sailor must know how to bait his hook. If the fish
aren't biting enjoy the sail; if the sails are in irons
motor over the reefs trowling with a planer. It is a
party either way.
Besides Bahia Mar's generosity with the weigh-
in, Lauderdale Yacht Club will again be hosting a.
prerace kick off party. Boyd's Bait & Tackle has
been instrumental in the arrangements for the
fishing tournament, and Cypress Humana
Hospital and Quality Air Conditioning are among
the trophy sponsors this year. More sponsors are
needed though to make this an attractive event
for sailors and fisherman, and a successful
fundraiser for Neurofibromatosis.

The citrus industry is one that was instrumental
in the growth of Fort Lauderdale. Many growers

used many local residents and Seminoles as
extras. Scenes show the New River community in
its infancy, prior to the development and growth
along the river and the Intracoastal Waterway.
As the first movie filmed in Fort Lauderdale it
drew attention during both its shooting in 1919
and its screening in 1920. It was shown in Fort
Lauderdale at the Oueen Theatre, on Wall Street,
and ticket prices were 55C for adults, 35C for
children, and 830 for reserved seats.

THE LAST MARINE STORE
by M.G. Swift
Last month saw the passing of another
tradition along the Waterfront- Herold Boat
Company closed it's doors for the last time.
Situated on the east bank of the Himmarshee
Canal south of Las Olas BI vd., the marine store
had been fixture in the boating community since
1945 (pre-historic times given a Fort Lauderdale
frame of reference).
Charles 0. Herold was stationed in Fort
Lauderdale during World War II. Like so many
other servicemen, the Kansas native decided to
live here after the war. Chuck wasn't working for
"Uncle Sam" anymore so in 1945 he opened up
Herold Boat Company at 548 South Federal
Highway in Fort Lauderdale. In 1950 Herold
moved his business to the 1112 East Las OLas
Boulevard location where it remained for thirty-
Not ortly did Herold sell boats, the store during
the early 1950's was the only place in town where
one could get an authorized recharge of one's Co2
fire extinguisher. Herold, needless to say,
developed a very good selection of marine

accessories. And, as time went by he drifted
away from boat sales and towards the
accessories, according to Van Snider, who
served as Herold's store manager for five years
during the 1970's.
Chuck Herold and Herold Boat Company were
early patrons of the Fort Lauderdale Fall Boat
Show, before it went International. Back in the
mid-1950's the Boat Show was held at the War
Memorial Auditorium in Holiday Park and Chuck
was displaying a Lakersea L-15 runaboat that
had the rear profile of a 1956 Chevy with a 35
horsepower Johnson outboard sticking out the
Speaking of boat shows, in 1981 Kay Pearson,
producer of the Fort Lauderdale International
Boat Show for the Marine Industry Association of
South Florida, bought the Herold Boat Company
from a dying Chuck Herold. From 1945 to 1981 Mr.
Herold had witnessed an evolution in retail
marketing and in Fort Lauderdale. Ten percent of
the total population of Broward County in 1950
showed up for Herold Boat's grand opening at
their Las Olas store; 3,000 people signed the guest
book that day. During the next thirty years the
county's population increased by 3333.33%.
Market changed from a sleepy small community
downtown. to a highly co m pet itive
urban/suburban melrople' wit' a downtown still
watching I Love Luf Theie were no suburban
shopping malls, nor any, of the wholelesale catalog
national marine warehouses c:tiin- when Chuck
Her:ild established Fort Lauderdale's first
significant marine store, according to Pearson.
The pictures that complement this story were
among hundreds that were recently rediscovered
behind a file cabinet drawer in the Herold Boat
Company business office. Store manager Monte
Pickton and Hank Whitney went through stacks
of 8 by 10's and snapshots and those funny
looking kind with the jagged edges like in one's
grandmother's photo album. We were eating
pizza and drinking Mountain Dew but there was
this feeling of being at a wake.
Below the store there is a crawl-space one can
almost call a basement or cellar, a rare thing for
Fort Lauderdale. With the help of Herold's boat
mechanic, Al Reiser, and his flashlight, we
explored this subterranian space in hope of
finding buried treasure..No more photographs.
The remains of an old outboard, boxes filled with
Styrofoamm peanuts", several heavy rubber
battery mats, mountains of discarded display
racks and cases, the storage drawers empty. The
only real find were tens of thousands of plastic
Herold Boat Company shopping bags like you
look for at a Boat Show.
Only, you won't see those bags at any more
Boat Shows. So it goes, like the family farm back

THE REIGN OF ELENA
by Greg Dellinger
While millions of people were fleeing from the
threatening destruction of hurricane Elena during
the Labor day weekend, she had become my
destiny. With an invitation from the people at
NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration) I was able to fly through Elena in
their modified research plane. Upon boarding the
aircraft I was briefed on where to evacuate the
plane in the event of an emergency, how to put on
the life vest, and how to use the special seat belts
and straps. I was now prepared for my first trip
through the eye of a hurricane.
The inside of the plane was complete with
sophisticated radar, tracking devices,
computers, and cameras. The outside of the plane
had radar antenna on the front, bottom, wings,
and tail. Once in flight I was shown what the
purpose of the equipment on board served. The
people of NOAA were very interested in showing
me all the equipment and answering any question
I had. The flights through the hurricanes are very
important. The computers on board are capable
of recording and storing thousands of pieces of
information per second, every second. Some of
this information is transmitted via satellite to the
Hurricane Center in Coral Gables. However,
most of the information is analyzed at a later
date. This helps meteorologist and scientist to
understand better the behavior of storms.
.It was not long after leaving the clear skies
over Miami until we were over the Gulf and face to
face with furious Elena. We first approached her
from the south; without hesitation, we flew right
into her. The one hundred mile an hour winds
shook the plane as if the wind was a big hand with
the plane in it's grasp. At times the wings would
flex up and down as if though they would snap off
any moment. Other times the plane would
suddenly drop several feet which gave the feeling
of weightlessness. With the wind swept rain
against the bubble type windows the view was
obstructed. Occasionally it became clear enough
to see the raging sea with it's scattered white
caps. Suddenly everything is calm and the sun
shines, we are now in the eye of a hurricane. It
was a breathtaking sight. Encircling us was the
wall of the eye which was made up of massive
storm clouds scaling up to five miles high. The
sight was an awesome example of God's power.
The eye would vary in size from one to five miles
across which did not give us very much time to
view the spectacle with just one pass.

BILLFISH TAGGING PROGRAM
by Roger Berkon
A cooperative Bahamian-American billfish
tagging program has become a reality. This
conservation effort has been funded privately by
Treasure Cay Beach Hotel and Villas, a world-
class resort complex in the Abacos.
"We have been working on this conservation
program for some time now. We are the first
Bahamian big-game sports fishing resort to
adopt the tag-and-release format for our annual
invitational billfish tournament", said Alfred
Meister, international sportsman and majority
owner of Treasure Cay. "Hopefully the other
resort owners in the Bahamas can see the value in
conserving the billfish resources and join our
The custom-made Treasure Cay tags are
available at cost to recreational billfish anglers
on a daily basis through the ships store located in
the modern 100-slips marina facility at Treasure
Cay: Completed tag cards may be turned into the
Treasure Cay Marina or mailed directly to the
National Marine Fisheries Service in Miami, FL
for processing and recording.

Bass fishing has been slow since Tropical
storm Bob went through this area. At Everglades
Holiday Park, located at the end of Griffin
Rd. and U.S. 27, bass fishing has been slow. Afew
smaller fish have been taken on live shiners
fished deep. Carol Manning caught a nice stringer
of fish at night using buzz baits, the biggest 5 Ibs.
to 7 Ib.
At Sawgrass Recreation Area, located two
miles north of S.R. 84 on U.S. Hwy #27, the fish
have moved into the flats and are scattered out.
Small fish are being taken in the flats on spoons
with a pork chunk as a trailer Panfishing has
been average for this time of nte year, with the
spillways along U.S. 27 being the best bet with
live worms and crickets being the bait of choice.
At Loxahatchee Recreation Area, located six
miles west of S.R. 441 on Lox Rd. (west of Boca
Ration) fishing has been somewhat better with
fish up to 4 lbs. being caught in the early morning
and late in the afternoon. Most fish are being
caught on plastic worms (purple or black) and top
water rapalas. The flats off the west canal have
been the most productive.
The action on Lake Okeechobee has been
predictably slow. The backpumping that has been
going on the last month has raised the level of the
lake, but it has also put a lot of chemicals used in
the sugar cane industry into the lake. The rim
canal remains the best bet for bass and crank
baits fished in the cuts to the big lake along with
plastic worms is what most fish are being caught
on (don't forget the old faithful shiners at the
lake, as they seem to produce when nothing else
Now that fishing has slowed down in the
Everglades, consider fishing in one of the many
smaller lakes or rock pits in the area. These lakes
were not affected by the higher water levels that
exist in the Everglades. Many of these lakes are
yeilding some nice size bass and panfish. The key
to catching bass at this time of the year is to be
persistent and have lots of patience.
Until next month this is Mike Johnson saying
Mike Johnson is head bass fishing guide at Bassmen's Bait &
Tackle at 4860 S. S.R. #7 in Fort Lauderdale. If you have
questions or comments for Mr. Johnson direct them to the
Waterfront News or call Johnson at his shop at 581-1985.
