In a letter to Governor Graham December 7,
Florida League of Anglers Legislative Committee,
Inc. has urged that he sponsors and support
legislative measures to repeal the law which
created the Marine Fisheries Commission; to
preclude membership on any game or fish (fresh
or saltwater) management body of any individual
with financial interest in game or fish; and to
preclude the state, or its agencies, from engaging
in fishery product research and development,
market research and development, and
marketing functions, because the role of
government should be that of steward of the
"The Marine Fisheries Commission, now in its
third year, has had the opportunity to prove itself,
and it has proved to be a dismal failure," wrote
Executive Director of Florida League of Anglers
Legislative Committee, Inc. "Under its
stewardship of rule formulation, Florida's
valuable attraction the King mackerel fishery -
has virtually collapsed as a result of netting.
Spanish mackerel is following the same pattern
of decline. Grouper and snapper are in deeper
trouble, as are redfish and trout."
Despite. overwhelming evidence that gear,
primarily nets, is a major cause of the problem,
the Commission has responded with mountains
of paperwork, unreal delays, bandaids and
placebos in the form of confusing minimum sizes
(which have been abandoned by many
management authorities as ineffective
With few exceptions, has the Commission
utilized the time-tested remedy of gear restriction
coupled with reasonable bag limits, preferring
instead to. impose severe bag limits on
recreational fishermen only.
SAs the state's representative on the federal
fishery management councils, its vote has
seldom followed that of Florida's other
representatives. In the face of the King mackerel
collapse, the Commission instructed its
representative to vote against a ban on purse
seining King mackerel in the federal zone and in
the case if the swordfish fishery, to vote for
Waterfront News Carrier Named
Middle School Editor
by M.G. Swift
Tom Gepfrich, the dean of the Waterfront News
paper carriers, has been named editor-in-chief of
Rodgers' Raiders Middle School student
newspaper. Gepfrich "put to bed" his first issue in
December, directing a staff of twenty-seven
fellow students. He plans to continue delivering
the Waterfront News.
Nearly three years ago, Tom Gepfrich was hired
by John Ziegler, then editor of the New River
Times to deliver papers to the boats docked along
the Citrus Isles and adjacent south for of the New
River. Tom followed Ziegler when John left the
New River Times to start the Waterfront News in
March of 1984 and Gepfrich's responsibilities
have expanded since then. Tom is now delivering
over one-thousand papers monthly not only to
the Citrus Isles, but also the New River from the
fork in the river through the southern Las Olas
Isles to the anchorage at the Las OLas bridge.
Since joining the Rodgers' paper staff, Tom
Gepfrich has been learning about journalism at,
school and also at the Waterfront News where he
has assisted Ziegler in the graphic layout of the
paper. Gepfrich, who has grown up on the banks
of the New River, is also an avid sailor and
windsurfer. Tom is a member 'of Gulf Stream
Sailing Club and the Boy Scouts of America's Sea
Exploring program. When last asked, Tom
Gepfrich was planning a career in the marine

Waterfront News' Carriers Are
Tom Gepfrich is one of sixteen paper carriers
that deliver the Waterfront News directly-to
waterfront homes, boats and docks, and marine
businesses from Hollywood to Deerfield. No other
publication's carriers do that nor reach
Broward's waterfront market the way Tom and
his colleagues do. Each month Tom, Jason Welles
(north fork New River & Middle River), Darwin
Gleichmann (Harbor Isles), Scott Moore (Dania'
Cut-Off Canal & Lauderdale Isles) and Matt Moore
(Plantation Isles) deliver over five thousand
papers via their small boats to the above areas
along with Gepfrich's Citrus and southern Las
Fifteen thousand papers are delivered by land
to boats and waterfront homes by Swen Neufeldt
(Isle of Venice), Jeff Prosie (Hendricks Isle), Steve
Bunker (northern Las Olas Isles), Bud and Kelley
Alcott (south fork New River), Patrick Gillis (Rio
Vista and Tarpon River), Todd Clarke (Harbor
Beach), John and Charles Metzger (north fork
New River), Gail Johnson (north Broward County)
and Richard Sutcliff (south Broward County).
Waterfront News Editor John Ziegler
personally distributes between five and ten
thousand papers each month to over three
hundred newsstand locations from the Deerfield
Chamber of Commerce Office to E&B Marine in
Hollywood. No other publication can boast this
wide of a distribution or penetration into Broward
County's marine community.
These fine young men and women are the
backbone of the Waterfront News and are the
only reason you're able to have your hands on
this very copy you're reading now. Seven of these
carriers helped Ziegler found the paper; five more
came along soon after. the paper's first issue two
years ago. These seasoned veterans have
helped nurture the responsible image Waterfront

over-stress the swordfish long-line fishery as

In final analysis, the Commission has been an
expensive duplication of effort, because the
Department of Natural Resources already had
statutory rulemaking authority.
"The Marine Fisheries Commission not only
has failed to lead the way to wise conservation
management of the fishery resources, but has
contributed greatly to the federal councils'failure
to stem the tide of Florida's collapsing fisheries,"
Cady concluded. "Your leadership in taking steps
to prevent further collapse of Florida's saltwater
fisheries will be greatly appreciated by all users.
I'm not customarily a letter writer to newspaper
editors, but I felt .compelled to write to you
because of the excellent results I've had
advertising in your newspaper's classified ad
Since the ad cost was low and the format of the
newspaper appeals to me personally, I "gambled"
one ad with you to see if your coverage included
more yachtsmen like me.
I received several calls on the large Chris Craft I
advertised for sale with you directly from my ad
and in fact, sold the boat to one of the inquiries.
I commend you on the excellent content and
distribution of the Waterfront News and assure
you that you have a firm advertiser and supporter
from my company and me.

Waterway Cleanup '86
by M.G. Swift
The Fort Lauderdale Jaycees in conjunction
with the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida (MIA) and the city of Fort Lauderdale want
to make the city shine for it's 75th birthday next
spring. Waterway Cleanup '86 will be one of many
events sponsored by numerous groups of the
"Make It Shine" project.
Annual waterway cleanup used to be under-
taken by the M.I.A. and the Jaycees want to
revive this constructive tradition with Waterway
Cleanup '86. Scheduled for March 8, 1986 eight
locations along Fort Lauderdale's waterfront will
be chosen to be cleaned up. A committee of city,
community and industry people is currently
considering potential site locations.
Organizers are planning to have a kickoff
party, a "treasure hunt" during the operation and
a post-cleanup celebration for the participants
along with over 500 T-shirts for the cleanup
For more information call Roger Topalian with
the JayCees at 922-7575 or Tony DiPinto at 463-
2700. Small boats and cleanup crew members are
badly needed. Make it shine along Ft.

Boaters, Coast Guard Get Good
by Michael Sciulla
During its scramble to adjourn for the holidays,
the U.S. Congress left behind a few Christmas
tidings which are evoking joy within the
recreational boating community.
The U.S. Coast Guard, which at the hands of the
Senate had been facing a massive cut of S230
million in its budget, succeeded in weathering the
storm and came through the Congressional
shoals relatively unscathed. While the USCG's
operating budget may fall just a bit short of last
year's, its capital account will actually be
The outlook for 1986 is improved not only for
the Coast Guard's budget, but state boating
safety programs should get a big boot as well.
For the first time since.1980, when Congress
agreed that the federal fuel taxes paid by boaters
should go into a trust fund to be used by the states
for their boating safety, education and law
enforcement programs, the full amount
authorized, $30 million, will actually be
appropriated. This more than doubles the $13.6
million released last year.
Furthermore, Congressional restrictions on the
use of these funds to build public access sites
may be lifted, allowing the states to use trust fund
monies for more launching ramps and moorings.

COAST GUARD USER FEES: Boating interest were
rallied by the NMMA. MIASF, and other state and
regional trade associations to oppose user fees.
and a very massive letter-writing campaign
apparently provided the ammunition Congress
needed to agree that Coast Guard user fees would
be blatantly unfair. considering that there is
already a motorboat fuel tax which is collected to
pay for government services to boaters.
Recreational boaters, however, will probably end
up paying more for NOAA navigation charts to
help reduce Federal spending.
CHARTERBOAT RULE MAY CHANGE: The Maritime
Administration (MARAD) has proposed a rule that
may change the requirement for filing a permit
each time a charterboat is leased to a foreigner to
require filing only once every six months.
Presently there is a S250 filing fee each charter
*and approval takes normally 30 to 90 days. This
has greatly limited charters in the U.S. to
foreigners. MARAD estimates a savings to
charterboat operators of S22.7 million. For further
info contact: Mrs. Jessie Fernanders. Ship

Administration. Washington, D.C. 20590.

An important activity of Flotilla 3-2 is to aid the

Attracted to Fort Lauderdale because it is the
"Boating Capital of the World", Dr. David Lewis
and Mimi George are looking for a new boat. An
old story, the reader thinks, happens everyday.
Perhaps, except that Dr. Lewis and Ms. George
are looking for a very special boat; a steel hulled
craft, between fifty and fifty-five feet in length
overall, with three cabins (excluding the main
salon) to sleep six, rigged as a ketch or schooner,
center cockpit. They are also looking for a very
special owner of such a sailboat who would
donate the boat to Fronties Research, a non-profit
corporation that Dr. Lewis set up in San Francisco
Doctor Lewis and Ms. George aren't typical
boat shoppers. They are scientists in search of a
sailboat to sail to Antarctica via Alaska and
Siberia. Lewis and George are attempting to set
up a joint Soviet-American-Austrailan scientific
project which would among other things study
the effects upon a small group of humans -
prolonged isolation in extreme conditions. The
findings from such an experiment would be useful
to countries' space and submarine programs. A
steel-hulled sailboat deliberately frozen-in the
winter sea ice of Antarctica would provide a good
test tube for Soviet, American and Australian
David Lewis has been to Antarctica before on a
sailboat. The National Geographic Magazine
published his story and Mimi George's
photographs in two articles in 1983 and 1984.
National Geographic has also published Lewis'
articles on Polynesian and Micronesian
navigation. (Editor's Note: see Jim Sullivan's -
article and illustrations on the subject when I
edited the New River Times, January, 1984, pages
16 and 17.) Dr. Lewis has written ten books on
various nautical subjects.
Lewis and George have funding to go to
Moscow for negotiations with Soviet authorities
and hope to have secured a sailboat and
Soviet/American crew by the Fall of 1986 for a
shakedown cruise to the southern Pacific Ocean.
Dr. Lewis hopes to sail to Alaska and Siberia in
June of 1987 so the scientists can learn from
Eskimos cold weather living skills. 1988 is the
target date for another Antarctic voyage.
If a steel hulled sailboat is to be had Broward
County ought to provide it.

Waterway Radio & Cruising Club
About 5:00 PM on 3 December, 1985, a short
range marine radio station on Long Island, in the.
southern Bahamas intercepted a distress call
from a vessel that was taking on water and
sinking near the small uninhabited island of
Conception. The Long Island station then
requested assistance from anyone with a long
range radio who could relay the information to
the U.S. Coast Guard and to the Bahamas Air-Sea
Rescue Association. Waterway net member Bob
Rader, NU4P who was on his vessel in George
Town, about 35 miles away, responded and
immediately contacted fellow member Jack
Young, W4HMT in Bradenton, Florida. Young
called Coast Guard Miami who in turn advised
BASRA Nassau. Within less than two hours a U.S.
Coast Guard jet was on the scene and searching
for survivors. The jet searched the area for two
hours but, because of darkness and a dwindling
fuel supply had to postpone the search until
daybreak. Meanwhile, Walt Burgess of Key
Largo, Florida, who was alone on the stricken
vessel had managed to get into his inflatable
dinghy and make his way to Conception Island.
When the search aircraft flew overhead Walt
attempted to light a signal fire using gasoline but
accidently burned himself on the arms and legs.
At daybreak the jet returned and spotted Walt
trying to make his way to Long Island in his
dinghy. Shore stations in Long Island were
alerted and a vessel was sent out to pick up
Burgess and bring him to a local airfield where he
was picked up by the rescue aircraft and flown to
a Miami hospital for treatment.

-7 January 15 February 15, 1986
By Sue Moesly
Sitting in SVEA's cockpit and watching the
water draw away from the big black rock on the
sandy shoreline, I anticipate the joys of
beachcombing that are about to begin with the
falling tide. The dinghy is already loaded with my
beach bucket, recycled red plastic mesh onion
bags I use to keep the shells and beach gatherings
separated, my plastic wading shoes and my big,
wide-brimmed straw hat, the one I had found in
Panama City at one of those out-of-the-way
Indian shops off the main street. I look across the
water towards the beach and note the last high
water line marked in broken curlicues of weed
lines near the edge of the untouched sand where
vines snake through the underbrush in endless
journeys to nowhere.
I look astern and see that ripples no longer lap
at the sides of the dinghy. The current is about to
change and I expect the small boat to start riding
up on her painter as the tide begins to turn
around. It is time to go to the beach, so I bring the
dinghy alongside and climb aboard.
I head for the cove and the big black rock, a
convenient hitching post nature has provided for
the cruising sailor. My footprints are shared only
by those of the shorebirds that have the same
thought in mind as I do. Little streaks, like
crossed toothpicks, zig-zag in erratic patterns
across the damp sand. I feel my steps are those of
an intruder's in a foreign land. I laugh when I
watch the little birds run along the water's edge
then dart back when the soft curls of wavelets
threaten to wash over their tiny feet. I want to tell
them that sharing their world with them gives me
a very good feeling.
I hear the cry of the oyster catcher as he flies
over my head and lands a few-feet in front of me.
He too, knows the creatures that live in the sand
make known their homes by the small holes that
pop open when the water recedes and exposes
their front doors. The bird with the long orange
beak & black head runs ahead of me, looks down
and then turns and looks back at me, as if to ask
me to do his diggings for him. He found the spot,
now it is my turn to do the work.To' ppease him I
come up to his marked spot and he takes to flight,
but only a few feet above me, so that he can hover
over my head as if to direct my shoveling. I find
nothing in the hole and carry on. Again, the oyster
catcher finds a new hole and repeats his acts of
conning me into doing his diggings for him.

"Go, on with you, you clown, you have a far
better tool than I do," I laugh and walk to the
water's edge to see if the surf has tumbled
anything of value in the rubble of broken
seashells that move back and forth at the will of
the incoming tide. I must be nimble and quick to
capture a shell before the surf reclaims it and
returns it to deeper water. There is nothing but
broken bivalves and small chunks of coral. But is
it really nothing? Sometime ago those pieces of
shells fit together and there were live creatures
housed inside. Some people say beachworn
shells have little value. I suppose so if one
considers the dead shells are tumbled over and
over again before they reach the beach. On the
other hand, taking a live shell, one that is of value
on the marketplace, is rather like killing a
creature. That, somehow, is-not too receptive to
the cruising sailor who sees nature's creations in
a different light from most people who do not
know what it is like to view nature's creations so
close at hand. What a pity they lack the eyes to
see the wonders of it all.
I follow on along the beach and my footprints
leave zig-zag tracks like the birds, for I weave up
and down from water's edge to the tip of the high
water mark. I find an old bottle, once white and
now turned a light violet from the rays of the sun
and the reflection from the water. A light bulb
discarded from a ship at sea, or a doll's head
minus its body, another cast-off from a cruise
ship that goes on through the night to the next
port. I find a blue rope tied up in the weed line and
barnacles coat its twists. Then I spot an orange
plastic bucket, but its handle is missing.
Nevermind, it will do to hold my treasures down
in the cockpit locker.
Creatures not yet born lie in their egg cases
enmeshed in the floatsam of seaweed and I am
reminded that nature too, can be harsh with her
survival methods. I poke at holes and turn over
weed, but the illusive live seashell is safe from
me. 'Course, I really do not work too hard at
shelling, for it is not the shell in the bucket that
gives me pleasure, but the awe of the whole
scene: the white sandy beach unmarked by
previous man's footprints, the clarity of the
water, the sky and the creatures titat live within
As the tide returns, the beach narrows and the
tumbled shells along the water's edge are lost

Eric Sevareid At Harbor West
by Bengt Bloom, Ph.D.
Candy machines have no respect -
Sometime in the late 70's I was living aboard
my yacht WHAT EVER IV berthed at Harbor West.
(The present site is now occupied by the Marriott
Hotel, 1881 SE 17th St., Ft. Lauderdale, FL.) Eric
Sevareid's yacht, believed to have been a
Westsail '42 was docked at the same marina. I
encountered Eric having a discussion with a
candy machine that would produce no calories
for other than a quarter! As I did not have change
for a dollar I lent the guy a quarter. Who, may I
ask, who had a quarter, would not have given Eric
If anyone or more has any contact with Eric
would they be so kind as to call his attention to
the fact that he still owes me a quarter? Further, if
there isn't some change coming forth from him I
am going to be forced to put a lien on something

from view as the rising water hides them, as it
does the holes and groves that disappear with the
first hint of the curfew caused by the incoming
tide. There, for a few fleeting moments it seemed,
the beach was mine to share with the oyster
catcher and the sandpipers. Now, there is nothing
but water and the feathered creatures have taken
flight and left me alone. I return to the dinghy with
my bucket near empty, but for myself I am filled
with such a very wonderful feeling. Tomorrow
there will be another low tide and I'll return.

Under the sales agreement with Phillips
Petroleum all Pier 66 employees were laid off
when the new owners took over in late December.
The hotel president, marina manager, chief
engineer, controller and marketing director have
all left the resort. General Manager, Rick Dumas,
will continue in that position. Representatives of
the new owners selected from the laid off
employees who they wanted to retain.

Ask Big Al
I have just purchased a Sea Ray SunDancer
(used) and it runs swell except for a few things I
would like to get your opinion about. First the
starboard engine control is much stiffer than the
port engine. The boat has a slight pull to the port
side, and when I haul the boat (it's under dry
storage) & pull the drain plug I get about a gallon
of water out of the drain each time.
Most used boats do have some water seepage
thru the shafts or boots etc. A gallon or so of
water is not excessive. If your bilges are dry &
your pump does not keep coming on you're in
good shape. I still would check all possible places
water could come in. Pulling to port could be your
tabs adjusted wrong or one motor running faster
thanthe other. Synchronize your engines & check
your trim tabs. Your control problem is a kinked
or bad control cable. Try lubrication & check
cable for corrosion or adjustment.
Recently while leaving the inlet we shut down
our engine & raised our sails. We suddenly heard
a large clunk & saw our new 25 HD Evenrude
dragging' in the- water by the control cables. It
took about 3 minutes to haul out the engine & we
drained out the float bowl & dried the plugs & we
were able to restart the engine & run it for about
an hour. When we got back we washed it with
fresh water & doused it well with WD40. Seems ok
now but will I have lemon in the future? Any other
Signed Too embarrassed to give my name...
I would not be embarrassed because you did
everything you possible could outside the inlet.
Running the engine for about an hour really dried
out the engine. I would drain the float bowl again
& pull the plugs & check them for rust of
contamination. Pull the engine cover off & dry out
all connections wires etc. I'd use a heat lamp. Run
the engine as much as you can. Evinrude's are
great engines and you should have no trouble at
all with it.

Gee Box The First Loran
by James E. Sullivan
I was first introduced to hyperbolic navigation
during WWII while participating as a navigator on
the heavy bombardment raids of Germany. The
bombardier required an I P initiall point) to set up
the Norden bombsight. On the earlier sorties I
used a Fairchild A 10 bubble sextant with a two
minute average to measure the altitude of the
sun to establish this I P. However, the A 10 was
awkward to use when holding the bubble and the
sun together for two minutes under combat
The answer to this came with the English
hyperbolic receiver called Gee Box being installed
in our B-24 bomber.
Gee was the standard British airborne
navigation system of WWII. Predating our Loran
by a year or so it developed in 1940 to provide an
accurate position fixing for British'bombers
flying over Germany. It was the first system
constructed to measure and convert the timing of
radio waves received into the distance the
instrument was from a chain of transmitting
radio stations; it was radar in a counting box.
Gee operated in the 20-85 mHz frequency range
and was therefore limited to line of sight
distances. However, refraction and ducting
sometimes extended the range somewhat. I found
that a height of 30,000 feet (normal bombing
altitude) the operational range of Gee was 400
miles. As in other hyperbolic systems maximum
accuracy of position occurs along the base line,
where 2/3 microsecond time difference
represents a distance of 328 feet.
Gee. was never widely used in merchant
vessels, its marine application 'as known as
"Q.H." For marine work a range of 100 miles from
the stations was normal with an accuracy of 1/2
The Gee chain consisted of a master and two or
three slave stations and differed from the early,
Loran sets in that the signals from two pairs of
Gee stations are matched simultaneor :y, two

Up to medium size **With ad
lines ot positions are obtained for the same
instant, thus avoiding. the necessity for
advancing one of the lines enabling the operator
to plot a speedier and a more accurate fix.
The timing deviLe of Gee was the cathode ray
tube that measured the time difference between a
pair of transmitters in microseconds. The
operator locates his position by finding an LOP
(hyerbola) that agrees with the time difference.
By repeating this process with the second pair,
the intersection point is the craft's position.
Although the Gee box had a limited range of a
few hundred miles it was a godsend to bomber
navigators. It was almost impossible to jam, used
only the more reliable ground waves, and gave an
accurate signal or none at all. For the rest of the
missions the A 10 remained in its box. The Gee
system is now obsolete.
I was reassigned to New Mexico for B-29 Pacific
Theater training. The bomber had a new
hyperbolic receiver made by the Philco Radio
Corp. called Loran-A with the bench number
AN/APN-9. It was much more difficult to use than
the Gee system but it had a superior range. Also
there was a new Kolsman bubble extent that fit
into a hole in the roof of the bomber.
Loran-A operated :inthe 1.7 to 2.0 mHz band. It
had a range of 600 to 800 miles over sea water,
but had very poor range over land. It had an
average fix error of 1 to 2 miles. The nominal
power supply was 80 to 115 volts supplied by an
alternator/inverter power pack. The signals
received were either ground, sky, or a
combination of the two. I found that it was
extremely important to distinguish ground waves
from sky waves and to use only the ground
-signals whenever possible. Sky signals tended to
split'and fade; much valuable time was wasted
trying to match the ground and sky pips on the
upper and lower traces. Just as it appeared that I
was successful in making a match the sky signal
would disappear very frustrating.
Today we have Loran-C and except for the
instruction books that come with the sets it is
extremely simple to understand and operate.
Loran-A has been terminated.

Dining Out: Cafe Max In Pompano
By Nedda Anders
Good seafood restaurants abound in Broward
but every now and then-you find one which
bounds higher than the others in its culinary skill
and imagination. Cafe Max is such a place. It is
quite handsome too. from the trim black and
white Regency awning at the entrance, to the
open kitchen at the rear stocked with bins and
shelves displaying marvelous-looking foods of
all kinds. Less attractive is the dining area itself.
Though pleasantly finished, it. is very crowded
with small tables and booths.
Owner Dennis Max and Chef Mark Militello
preside. They know how to pamper the palates of
local diners, offering a wide range of eclectic
dishes. For starters, an enticing soup is always
on the menu. Because a good soup is a sure test of
a cook's skill. I ordered the white bean and
vegetable soup. It was full bodied and savory,
fragrant with fresh basil and thyme (S2.55). Other
appetizers, such as an innovative duck sausage
and smoked ravioli with sundried tomatoes.
brown butter and fresh basil, or the caviar pie
(each $4.95) get the taste buds off to a good start.
From the entree list, my dining companions and
I. though noting the varied meat and polutry
dishes, selected rainbow trout caviar beurre
blanc (S15.95), dill-buttered Norwegian salmon
($13.95) and swordfish steak with lemon caper
butter (S14.25). The fish was succulent and truly
fresh, not the case at all restaurants, even when
they claim to feature only fresh fish. The.fact is
that when fish is held even a day too long it loses
its moist delicate juices. The fish can develop an
off-taste, though technically it is fresh, having
never been frozen. Many restaurants will admit, if
you ask, to using frozen fish but, alas, frozen fish
is always disappointing. Its soft flesh becomes
mushy as juices and flavor run off in/the thawing
process. The only cure for fish past its prime is an
overpoweringly strong sauce and such sauces
are a giveaway at some of the local
establishments. Fortunately at Cafe Max the
integrity of the ingredients is unquestionable.
An excellent salad is included with the entree.
Ours was made with impeccably crisp redleaf and
Bibb lettuces, mushrooms, and juicy tomatoes.
all dressed with a piquant vinaigrette. The
vegetables--baby zucchini with blossoms intact,
tiny boiled potatoes. Imperial squash and sweet
young carrots--also included with the maindish.
were mostly rare miniature varieties. Artfully
presented, they looked like still-lifes, but this was
art for eating!
For dessert, we drooled over a rich complex
assemblage of hazelnut meringue, strawberry
mousse, whole raspberries and blackberries,
creme anglaise, and a strawberry sauce. A sprig
of fresh green mint crowned the fantasy. What a
great reason for going off a diet!
So get thee to Cafe Max, enjoy the wine and
good food, and know that the bill won't break
your bank.account as prices are not excessive.
But be sure to call first for a reservation.

"Do It In The Dirt" With Broward
Soil And Water Conservation
by Marilyn Damon
December was a busy month for B.S.W.C.D.
On December 3, B.S.W.C.D. attended a photo
session at the Gooayear Blimp Base in Pompano
Beach. B.S.W.C.D. won the Second Place
Goodyear Conservation Award for the State of
Florida. Scott Baughman, Public Relations
Director, presented the Goodyear Award to J.
Adams and the Board for 1985. During the
session, B.S.W.C.D. presented Commissioner
Howard Forman with a plaque recognizing his
Environmental Giant Steps in the field of
conservation for 1985. Commissioner Forman
and the B.S.W.C.D. Board had lunch immediately
following the presentation at the Sea Watch
Restaurant in Pompano Beach.
Commissioner Forman, along with ex-
Commissioner Marcia Beach, have been very
supportive of B.S.W.C.D. efforts to promote the
use and sales of compost. Three waste products.
are recycled in the production of compost.
B.S.W.C.D. won Second Place for Best Display
at the Broward County Fair. Our exhibit featured
an agricultural display and a coastal erosion
display. District Coordinator Wendy Kievet-
Burgess was costumed as Mother Nature and a
continuous slide presentation explaining
district activities was also featured.
B.S.W.C.D., along with U.S.D.A. District
Conservationist, Thaddeus Hamilton, have
completed the Re-vegetation Beach Project on
Pompano Beach. We are happy to announce the
plantings have a 99% survival rate and weathered
our recent hurricane threat very well. Please tour

charts, R.D.F., tapes. On this trip I will be bringing
a big cooler and 3 five gallon jugs of water. I can
hear the charterboat company workerssaying
now, do you believe the stuff this guy brings.
Some even feel sorry for me and help me load up.
Seven days to the Bahamas with 3 couples in
their thirties, two businessmen, an engineer, 2
housewives and a nurse. The form says "no
sailing experience". Sometimes that's good, you
can count on what they are going to do, nothing
you haven't showed them yet.
Well by this time it's 10 a.m. and they arrive in
two rental cars. One with the people, and one with
all the food and the gear. They seem nice mid-
westeners. A little nervous, maybe. We are sizing
each other up. They are looking at my make-shift
hatband, beard and ripping knife. I am watching
the way they move to assist me in making
assignments for duties aboard the boat. They
asked me what I think of them so far. I tell them to
go unpack those "hard suit cases" on the boat and
then take them up and leave them at the charter
boat company office. I give them a book I do on
the Florida Keys that has a suggested
provisionings list in it, checking it against what
they bought. That seems to calm them down
I show them how to operate the heads and
assign the sleeping arrangements so everyone
will know where to store their gear. By noon we
are going out of the inlet. It's blowing 15 knots from
the N.E. and a good swell running. We are making
about 6.5 knots under full sail. By and by two of
the guys and one of the girls aren't feeling so
good. So we decide to sail down to Miami, anchor
and cross the Gulfstream tomorrow at daylight.
Dan the engineer puts my 2 trolling rods out and
about half way to Miami we pick up two nice
I put one of the girls on the wheel and go aft to
skin the fish. One of the reasons I really like this
job, eating fresh fish, sailing, diving, and seeing
these people have the time of their lives. I got one
of the women and slipped down into the galley
and fried up some of the Dolphin in butter, lime
juice and soy sauce. The fish smells so good
cooling, everybody comes alive. One of the guys
says, "I never thought that smell of cooking fish
would make me feel better".
Sailing in to Key Biscayne anchorage with a
beautiful sunset full in our face, we drop the
hook, have some drinks, more fish and talk about
tomorrow's trip. I really enjoy a first time
charterer's enthusiasm about the waters, the fish
and the adventure itself. I tell them you can lay
home on the couch and watch it on National
Geographic or you can get out here and do it, but
you can't do both.
5:30 a.m. we are up and out, breakfast under
way. The wind is about the same as it was the day
before. Under full sail the breaking sun reflects
the spray of the Gulfstream, coming occasionally
over the windward rail.
"Ok folks," says I, "don't want no pukers or
burners to-day; let's get that number 15, on and
those patches behind your ears"(a new seasick

Further down the King's Highway on the left is

pictures of fish and Ernest Hemingway on the

"the ring game" which consists of a brass ring

swung toward a hook stuck into the tavern's wall.
The owner of bar, Ossie Brown, comes over and
gives some lessons.

Freshwater Fishing Report
By Mike Johnson
This is the time to be at Lake Okeechobee with a
fishing pole in hand., The south end of the lake
from Clewiston to Belle Glade have been the hot
spots. Some guides are saying that fishing is
better than it has been in 10 years. Bass are
hitting red shad worms, black grape, green glitter
worms, and especially the tequilla sunrise
worms. Topwater lures and wild shiners have
produced several bass in the 10 Ib. range. The
edges of the weedbeds along Creamer Island, Rita
Island and Grassey Island are still producing limit
stringers of bass. Crappie are starting to show up
in the Rim Canal and in the cuts, with Missouri
minnows and live crickets being the bait of
Fishing has been good in the West Canal and
the adjoining flats along the West Canal. Dark
colored worms and silver rapalas are producing
limit stringers of bass. Flyrods have also been
devastating in the West Canal. Limit stringers of
bluegills are being caught in the early morning
hours at the spillways along the West Canal.
Bass are on the move at sawgrass as the water
level continues to drop. The East Canal has been

lunkers are being taken on. Crankbaits such as
shad-raps and bombers.
EVERGLADES HOLIDAY PARK
Bass fishing is picking up here however it still
remains a disappointment compared to other
parts of the conservation areas. The best bet is
the Miami Canal with live shiners.
Everglades Bass Anglers held their annual two
day Bass Tournament on November 30 and
December 1. It was held at West Lake Toho near
the Kissimmee Chain. 28 anglers competed for
points for the-angler of the year. 52 fish were
caught and considering the weather conditions
this was a very good catch. 1st place went to
Scott Christophel who caught 7 fish for a total
weight of 15 Ibs. 5 ozs.. Second place went to
John (Killer) Nydam who caught 10 fish for a total
weight of 14 Ibs. 10 ozs. Third place went to Jerry
(Boats) Nydam who caught 4 fish for a total of 8
Ibs. 14 ozs. Nice going guys.
Everglades Bass Anglers is open for new
members and the annual dues is S20.00 per year.
There is a club meeting on the first Wednesday of
each month and a club tournament once a month.

and good fishing.

head of the county's artificial reef program. The
tote machines, "Sea Horses", serve this purpose.
Somerville reports that this project should be
complete sometime in January 1986. F.O.C.E. is a
non-profit youth development organization that
works with the Broward County School Students
who require special educational and disciplinary
attention not necessarily available to them in the
school system. F.O.C.E. attempts to establish "a
symbiotic relationship (between) youth and the
sea" along with instilling into the youth work
habits that may help them in the workplace,
according to F.O.C.E. officials.

Mercedes I, Nine Months Later
by Brian Brooks
My son Michael and I drifted slowly south
along her port side. We were lucky enough to be
the first ones dropped from the dive boat. We had
her alone to ourselves. Usually both of us are
working, that is taking other divers for their first
sight of her. But on this beautiful day we were
alone and had only to observe her beauty in the
clear 80 foot visibility water.
Blossoms of white and red coral were
sprouting all along her sides. Algae. had long
since covered her steel and rust. Being alone we
could see what the last nine months have done to
the lady that had caused all the publicity.
Who could ever forget that windy Thanksgiving
Day in 1984 when the Mercedes I was swept
ashore and landed in front of Mollie Wilmot's
house? Who could ever forget the television
newsmen interviewing this dear lady with
strange sunglasses, sipping champagne, telling
the free world how depressing it was to have this
terrible monster ship run amuck into her back
yard. Things like that just aren't done in Palm
Beach. The world was up in arms. Well at least we
divers enjoyed seeing the ship sitting,lusting over
The divers in Broward County, long taking a
back seat to our cousinsin Dade County, dreamed
how nice that ship would look sitting on the
bottom of the ocean just off Fort Lauderdale. Sure
other ships had been dropped. But they were
dropped deep for the fisherman, which was good;
but we wanted one for ourselves to play with.
Well, 105 days later Donjon Marine Company
from New Jersey obliged and took her from sweet
Mollie's back yard. Quickly, Steve Somerville the
Artificial Reef Coordinator for the Broward
County Environmental Quality Control Board saw
to it that Mollie's boat was sitting in Port
Everglades right next to Burt and Jack's
Restaurant. Thanks to Steve and the South
Florida Divers Club plus contributions from a lot
of people in the Broward Dive Industry,Mollie's
boat was sent to the bottom on March 30th with
charges that dropped her in 57 seconds. Sam Rich
a local Dive Shop owner swam down within
minutes and reported that all was well. We finally
had our own wreck to play in.
Since that time fish have discovered it. Larger
fish lusting over the smaller fish discovered it
also. A whole artificial reef system was born just-
off Fort Lauderdale.
Millions of people from'all over the world
watched and wondered about a bunch of crazy
people caring about a rusty old freighter. Since
that time Steve Somerville and Broward County
have sunk several other ships, planes and oil
platforms which benefits everybody, the fish, the
divers and the fisherman. Steve has walked a
delicate line between divers and fisherman and
kept everyone happy. Between Mollie's back yard
toy and Miami Vice all of a sudden we live in a
place everyone in the world wants to be a part of.
California eat your heart out.
It's been a fun year in the marine industry be
you fisherman or diver. The Broward Dive
Industry Association has wisely voted to not
allow fishing on the Mercedes. This allows the ship
to grow into our own little Disneyworld. Someday
diver and big fish might just meet each other in
one of the passageways of Mollie's ship each on
his or her own trip.
As Michael and I swim up toward the wheel
house we spot a large gag grouper coming from
that direction, evidently swimming away to the
reef on the approach of the divers. When they
ascend the grouper will return.
Exploring the dark cabins and passageways
alone is exciting and heady stuff. With a lightlittle
creatures can be seen in every part of the ship. A
large barracuda waits for us on the stern and isn't
in the least bit intimidated. Large arrow crabs
crawl over the deck. Back in one of the holds of
the ship a tiny lobster can be seen. The slow
rythmic sound of our bubbles wake us from our
fantasy trip. We slowly swim back to the line,
each of us thrilled to have seen the lady alone. As
we slowly swim north along the fighter's deck a
cloud of silt comes toward us, the tourists are on
the lady. It's a shame they can't swim without
kicking up silt. But the Mercedes accomplishes
another important task. By everyone diving on
her the reef's, which take enough abuse, will be
left alone. Everyone benefits.
In speaking with other instructors or
divemasters it's always interesting to hear their
impressions of the past nine months on the
Mercedes I. Larry Hatfieldan Instructor and
Divemaster, mentioned that lately he has been
making friends with a young three foot long green
moray eels that has taken up residence in the
Other divemasters have mentioned little places
on the ship that they always swim to and find the
same little creature whether it's a small grouper
or nudibranch. They speak about the creatures as
if they were its parents. Life is evolving and it
started with that stormy day on a dreary
Thanksgiving when the Mercedes I broke free of
her moorings and was. pushed ashore into
It's been a great year in the Marine Industry
whether its been diving, fishing or private clubs.
We have all benefitted. I remember that windy
night on March 29th when South Florida Divers
Club had a farewell party aboard the Mercedes I.
It was her last night in Port. Hundreds of people in
their own boats came by the ship and wished her
well. They were happy. There was a sense of
oneness between all of us, a sense of
community Fort Lauderdale had grown up. We
were one thanks to Mollie and her ship.
The tourists are all over the ship now. Michael
and I slowly ascend from her on this beautiful
December day each with our own thoughts nine
months after the Mercedes I came into our lives.

Major Exhibition Of Postwar
by Janet Maizner
Inaugural Exhibition to Feature Painting,
Sculpture and Environmental Art Since 1940
Exhibition to be on View January April, 1986
Fort Lauderdale, Florida -- The Museum of Art
announced that it will inaugurate its new building
with a major exhibition, AN AMERICAN
RENAISSANCE: PAINTING AND SCULPTURE
SINCE 1940, opening January and remaining on
view through April, 1986.
The exhibition, organized by guest curator
Professor Sam Hunter of Princeton University,
will feature approximately 150 major works
ranging in style from the monumental sculpture
of Alexander Calder to the graffiti-inspired
canvases and constructions of Jean-Michel
Basquiat. The exhibition is made possible by a
grant from the American Express Company.
AN AMERICAN RENAISSANCE will define the
revolution that took place in American art by
surveying the main currents and major artistic
trends of the past 50 years. It will also place the
works in a historical and ideological context,
linking their visual impact to a historical
evolution of ideas, theoretical issues and
concepts of art and society. By examining the
vast diversity and richness of art of the past half-
century, the exhibition will illustrate America's
emergence as a predominant force in modern and
The 150 works that comprise AN AMERICAN
RENAISSANCE were selected as outstanding
examples of their time, and include some of the
most important and best-known icons of postwar
The exhibition encompasses Abstract
Expressionism, with representative paintings
and sculpture by Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko,
Willem de Kooning, David Smith and others; Pop
Art with works by Claes Oldenburg, Roy
Lichtenstein, Jim Dine, George Segal, Andy
Warhol, Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg;
Minimalist sculpture by Donald Judd and Robert
-__Morris; and such current trends -as Neo-
-Expressionism, with representative large scale
work by Eric Fischl, David Salle, Julian Schnabel,
Kenny Scharf, Robert Longo, Jonathan Borofsky
and many others.
Sam Hunter, professor in the Department of Art
and Archaeology at Princeton University and
Curator of Modern Art at the Princeton University
Museum, has been named advisor-to the Museum
of Art, Fort Lauderdale. According to Professor
The exhibition attempts a coherent intellectual
history of the past 50 years by linking its visual
impact to a chronological development of ideas.
The survey will connect theoretical issues and
concepts of art and society -- from the idealism
and expressionistic violence of Abstract
Expressionism to the emphasis on mass media
image and cultural responses of Pop Art, and
other cultural factors for subsequent styles. The
show is thus an exploration of the relationship of
American art to the historically specific
conditions of American life, thought and artistic
traditions since World War II.
Professor Hunter has served as the director of
the Minneapolis Institute of Arts, the Jewish
Museum in New York City and the Rose Art
Museum at Brandeis University, and as a curator
at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City. He
is also former art critic for The New York Times.
.His books include: Modern Art: Painting, Sculpture,
Architecture (Harry N. Abrams, Inc./Prentice-Hall,
1985); The Museum of Modern Art, New York: The
History and Collection (Harry N. Abrams, Inc., 1984);
and George Segal (Rizzoli, 1984).
A comprehensive catalogue will accompany
the exhibition with essays by leading
commentators of contemporary art, including
Harry Gaugh, Susan Larsen, Kim Levin, Robert
Morgan, William Zimmer and Professor Hunter.
Susan Bloom, vice president of Cultural Affairs
for the American Express Company, noted,
"American Express is honored to be playing a role
in bringing this important exhibition to South
Florida and launching the new Museum of Art. We
are committed to supporting the arts in the
communities where our employees work both in
the U.S. and abroad." Since 1981, American
Express has supported more than 100 visual and
performing arts projects in 20 countries on five
George Bolge, director of the Museum of Art,
also announced other exhibitions organized by
the Museum for its inaugural year including a
major survey of postwar American photography
with guest curator Andy Grundberg, photography
critic for The New York Times, in the fall of 1986.
Other, exhibitions include a retrospective of the
paintings of American Abstract Expressionist
Richard Pousette-Dart, and selections from the
noted collection of international modern and
contemporary art of Miami collector Martin Z.
The Museum of Art was founded in 1958 and in
February 1984 began the construction of its new
$7.5 million facility designed by architect Edward
Larrabee Barnes. The museum's collections
include extensive holdings in 19th and 20th-
Farming The Everglades
by Rodney Dillon
Farmers, attracted to south Florida by vast
acreage and long winter growing seasons,
witnessed the transformation of the Everglades
from a forbidding wilderness into one of the
nation's most productive agricultural regions. In
the process they battled difficult terrain and
weather, insects, and- poor transportation
facilities. During the 1890's and early 1900's
agriculture was the primary economic activity in
the Broward County region, and it remained an
important force into the 1950's. Ironically, in the
past three decades, the county's rapid population
growth has brought a decline in farming. Today,
few Broward residents know the unique
difficulties and advantages of farming the
At 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, January 14, 1986,

The new proposal calls for the OUPV license to

For the Near Coastal version, only three months

The Ship-Shape Skipper Is Easy
by Bill Lange
Several months ago, Waterfront News boating
safety comments related to some of the ways a
skipper can steer into trouble (SIT). Let's look at
more, which are painfully obvious to near by
boaters who are judging your lack of expertise.
As you cast off from your ramp or mooring,
charge along waterway, plough near to other
water-people, or even listen on Channel 16 you
might note some indications of disdain for your
seamanship. Do try to look at such from the other
aspect, namely that your problem is most
importantly a matter of safety, for yourself, your
friends and your. vessel..
Towed boat launching at ramps is frequently a
comedy of errors, and too often on the verge of
real danger. I will not repeat here what you can
best learn from a United States Power Squadron
or Coast Guard Auxiliary boating course, and
your own study of Charles F. Chapman's
"Piloting, Seamanship and Small Boat Handling".
Both launching and recovery are a pleasure to
watch when you follow those procedures.
But why fight nature? Why don't you use
CHOCKS? My observation is that only about 3
percent bother to do so.. As a result several
vehicles are towed into the water each year at the
ramps. While the rest risk similar destruction as
the wheels vibrate under the tension, or even
start to slip on the greasy incline, or the skipper
angrily yells at someone to run put a foot on the
brake pedal. And sometimes there is even a child
or others still seated in the driverless vehicle!
There are frequent cases where the vehicle's
clutch or brakes are close to failure. Often the
drive wheels are spinning and tread burning yet
the skipper does not know that more weight.is
needed on the rear axle, and that he should ask
some of the heavyweight onlooker crew to climb
on the vehicle. Just once in a daggone while do I
see the skipper has made four chocks, with
proper length cords so that the chock follows the
vehicle until the whole concoction can be'flipped
into the trunk.
Most skippers do remember to"put the plug in.
but not all. It is one item which you must have on
your getting-underway check list: do not let idle
chatter distract your procedures. Strangely,
almost as many forget the plug are matched by
those who launch while the stern tiedown straps
are still on. That complicates recovery as the tow
vehicle wheels often are by now on slick surface.
While you do not have to be a martinet, you are
the skipper. You are totally responsible.
You must tell your first mate/crew/passengers/
visitors what to do; and how to do it. This applies
to yachts, to waterfront docked boats, to marina
forklift users, but strongly to ramp launchers.
Believe it or not, some passengers would like this
but are hesitant to ask-- for you have skipper
stature. Brief them on how and, where to load;
show them where the various safety items are
(and maybe how to use them). Control them while
Just like the US flag upside down, observers
will know what you are by the status of your
lines. A few boats have literally only strings or
maybe ragged clothesline, rather than the proper
lines. Many are equipped only with colored lines;
which means they are really ski-tow ropes (not
safe for handling a vessel).
Often a skipper tries to get away with using
only a bow line. That is not right and usually-
slows up the handling. Always have both bow
and stern lines properly rigged. Boat momentum
or tide, or current, or wind will cause you
problems which your line handling can control
(and do not rely on the vessel engine; it is no
There are three aspects of line handling danger
which are noted often enough so that maybe you
are the character who should listen up. The line
handler who does not know enough to take a turn
around some object (piling, etc), and tries to hold
a boat moving with momentum, is a probable
accidentchargeable to you. Many flat type pilings
or buffers are unsound; the lower bolt being
broken they will flip sidewise, Or spin downward,
so that leaning on them tosses the leaner or the
line. Considerable risk is present when you throw
a line to someone to tow them. Towlines can
snap, or pull a cleat out, and someone is likely to
be injured by the zinging thing.
Speaking of zinging things do you know what
is literally deadly? I see few taking precautions
against what I would treat like a rattle snake.
That is the cable of your winch. Tension is terrific
and if the cable snaps, or pulls a fastening loose,
you have a sort of superfast mauler with fatal
power. You or the stander-by are targets. Granted
that even cable feed onto the drum, or handling
the power switch and levers, need doing --- there
are ways to protect persons. Look into these
Some observers rate you on the status of your
life preservers. PF'D for short. Every boat, but
yes every boat, must have a Class IV PFD. That is
a throwable type. It is visible because it has to be
right at hand whence it can be chucked to the
grasping person in the water. Some boaters
forgot itat home, others have it stowed under the
anchor, others treat it like a cushion. Your other
PFDs, one per person on board, must be in good
shape but some look pretty crummy. Can you
trust them for the hoped-against long float? Now
on a yacht the other PFDs may not look right
either.....when what? Yup! When still sealed in
their original package. For you and the would be
user will panic trying to get the PFD uncased and
into position for wearing. How about a little PFD
putting-on drill? And for the kids make it a game.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary can suggest how to do
the latter: they also have a coloring book for free,
which starts the future skippers toward
seapersonship. You guessed it; the USCG is wide
open to female enlistment and to their entry into
the US Coast Guard Academy. That helicopter out
of Opa-Locka, hovering over you in the worst of
last-second life saving, now often has female
pilot and co-pilot.
Some observers will mentally evaluate you on
the mess visible in your boat. I'll admit this is one
not always easy to solve, but do try. Is everything
on top of everything else? And thus all tied up. Are
things a matter of hide and seek on board? A fire
extinguisher somewhere, maybe even rolling
loose in the bilge. Distress signals in a humid
location, or "Gosh, I saw them last week.....".
Loose and shifting portable fuel tank, loose and
shifting and uncovered battery. Many such a
messy boat is soon in need of tow ashore.
The sport of boating is a pleasure but your day
can be most unhappy when the engine does not
start or run right. Whether sail, or yacht, or any
small boater, the ready-to-be-happy persons on
board suffer a big letdown. If you are already
underway there can be subsequent danger.
So try the engine beforehand. Be sure to.have
the engine open to the air (don't just rely on a
blower) when cranking. Have an extra battery
and test it for charge while correction is possible.
A hard start in' port could assure trouble once
adrift. Fuel pump action, fuel strainer pollution,
fuel line failure, spark plug condition --
preventive inspection is vital. For the big point is
not merely to-day's fun afloat, it is your safety. Do
you have the "Emergency Repairs Afloat"
pamphlet? Call USCGAUX at 463-0034.
