Your article "Spring Break" (pages 20-21, Feb.
15-Mar. 15, 1986) repeatedly refers to college
students as "kids". Actually they are adults of 18
years or older. They deserve the same
consideration given other minority groups.
This old citizen dislikes age discrimination in
employment or other matters regardless of how
well intended. In this respect the laws prohibiting
young adults from drinking would probably be
found unconstitutional as a violation of their civil
Perhaps this attitude by people here
contributes to the problem of the Spring Break. If
you treat persons as if they were children they
will tend to act as "kids". A patronizing attitude
only encourages irresponsible behavior.

We read with interest Nathan Robert's recent
article on Spring Break, and we do appreciate the
way Mr. Roberts balanced Mr. Hemphill's
unfavorable comments with Mr. Aumann's
favorable comments concerning Covenant
Covenant House, open in Ft. Lauderdale only
since last September surely did not create the
phenomenon of Spring Break. Kids don't run
away from home or migrate to an area because
there is a program there. They run away to escape
their problems only to find they have few
resources for survival.
We offer them a chance to turn their lives
around. We're available 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week, 365 days a year to provide a hot meal, a
safe bed, and real help toward either family
reunification or a substitute home, or, for older
youth, preparation for independent living. In just
five months we've helped over 700 youth, most of
them walk-ins from the "Strip".
Spring Break will be a problem for us, too, not
because we expect an influx of college students.
Part of our help for kids-in-crisis involves
teaching them to use their energy in productive
ways with a structure that includes a 6:00 a.m.
wake-up, a planned daytime schedule, and a 9:00.
p.m. curfew; that routine coupled with a no
alcohol, no drugs, no sex policy isn't likely to be
attractive to vacationing college students. Rather
we anticipate larger numbersof younger kids and
a heightened "party all the time" environment that
will be a temptation to "our" kids.
We are working hard to be a positive partof the
beach community. Many of our neighbors have
expressed their appreciation for our presence;
many have donated money or volunteered time.
We have been and will continue to be responsive
to the needs of this community, and we thank you
and your readers for being responsive to ours.

Just read your latest issue and above all, the
letter from "Colonel H.W. Lange". He must be from
Kentucky. If he were a salt water buff at all, he
would know that scenes like as on your last cover
are quite common in the Bahamas and have been
for about a hundred years. These scenes were
also quite common in the New York area in the
first 30 years of this century, only not on such a
large, heavy boat, but rather on racing canoes.
Hiking harnesses only became popular with the
development of the Flying Dutchman, which took
place during the late fifties.
Believe me, John, your picture was quite proper
and, in fact, brings back many fond memories.
Keep up the good work!

I was not too pleased with your latest article in
the Waterfront News. I guess that I should not be
too shocked, as I am aware that there are a lot of
"frustrated would be police officers" out there.
But you seemed to forget one basic principle in
your article, that is THIS IS AMERICA! We allow
ourselves to do things that others might deem
foolish or down right dangerous.
I almost fell over laughing when I read of how
you go around, minding everyone else's
business, and tell people that "they can't ride on
the bow with their legs over the side"! Just how do
you do this?? Do you load the misses up in the
Whaler every Sunday and ride up and down the
intracoastal with loud hailer in hand, yelling at
every "hazard" that YOU say is wrong? I wonder if
the REAL coast guard is aware that you have set
up yourself as an authority on boat safety??
When will you start to issue your own "inspected"
One of the best parts of boating safety is that
the life that you end may be your own or a family
member. Even boat crashs are a rare thing. You
accept a much greater risk when you drive a car
than a boat. The chances of something
happening, minor or major, is a calculated risk.
Now, why should you or I even think of intruding
into other people's business. If say, some
Mexican wants to put gas into a tank marked
WASTE, who are we to stop him? Maybe he has a
better idea. By letting people "experiment" with
their own lives and the lives of their family and
friends, we all can learn something. Now I have
never thought of the concept of carrying extra
gas in a toilet waste tank, but, if in the future, I
should be in need of more tank space, I shall know
that the idea of using a WASTE tank is some what
Now, you may think that I am "sick", but I do
respect the right of other's to be different.
Remember seeing those old news reels:covering
the first few years of flying? Rememberall those
comical crashes? Well, people were hurt and
killed then, but it still looks very funny when we
see those news reels today. We sorta wonder just
how stupid those people could be. WELL.
BOATING IS THE SAME.
Instead of trying to get the local government to.

you stop, and think! A simple financial
responsibility law, secured with a easily attached
lien on the vessel, to repay the costs of anyone
"forced" (govt. or private) to rescue those people
whose own negligence resulted in their mishap.
Dear Bruce Wheatley:
Trying hard to "do my good turn" by helping
boaters to be safer I find that 98 percent of my
many skipper contacts appreciate having safety
aspects pointed out and clarified.

The United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and

Ban On New Coastal Marinas
TALLAHASSEE -- Natural resource official
think Florida should indefinitely ban new marinas
along the state's coasts to protect endangered
manatees from often-fatal encounters with boats.
The Department of Natural Resources is
planning to ask Gov. Bob Graham and the Cabinet
to impose such a ban along selected, but as of yet
undetermined, areas of the state's coasts.
Officials said they don't know how long such a
construction moratqrium could last but said at
least two years would be needed to study and
develop a long-range protection plan for the
State and federal wildlife officials estimate
about 1,200 of the mammals remain in Florida
"I expect anytime you regulate, you're going
to have some controversy," said Duane Bradford,
spokesman for the agency. "It's a question of
values. We've had a lot of deaths with manatees.
We're not talking about wholesale halts, it's not

As Dock Brawls Go,
This One's No Imbroglio
By Nathan L. Roberts
Faced by formidable opposition from city, civic
and condo interests, Mike Zuro, owner/developer
of a pair of new 600 foot docks immediately
alongside the Swimming Pool Hall of Fame, may
abandon his plan to construct a third dock that
would connect the other two.
The planned dock, some 480feet long, would be
on the Intracoastal Waterway side of the Pool and
Hall of Fame Museum. The Hall fronts on
Seabreeze Boulevard one street in from Rt. A1A
and the ocean, with its property backing on the
Of the two docks in existence, the one on the
south side of the Hall is operational. The north
dock is still under construction, with an end-of-
April completion date. Both docks are built with
slips that can accommodate 24 boats each.
Zuro said he hopes to pursue the matter of
building the Intracoastal dock, which will have no
slips, in some four to six months after all present
work including outfitting is finished.
He said, however, "it's up in the air," an
indication that he might not go through with it.
Were he to try, he might run into the same stiff
rejection that followed a recent hearing before the
Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board. With
Zuro and his opponents testifying, the Board
voted unanimously to reject his plan.
Chuck Williams, the board chairman, said that
a main reason for the rejection was that the dock
would have blocked a water view of the Hall of
Fame and destroyed the open view of the water
from the Hall's campus.
Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Bob Cox, a
strong advocate of preserving and improving the
city's water environment and of insuring marine
safety, expressed his firm opposition to Zuro's
"I am against it," he said, "and I am sure that the
other city commissioners are, too, and so is the

"The boat-kills continue to climb and we just
have to stop and take a look at what's
happening," DNR Executive Director Elton
Though a final map hasn't been drawn,
Gissendanner said only areas with high-kill rates
would be covered by the construction ban.
Graham, who along with pop singer Jimmy
Buffet has headed the Save the Manatee
educational foundation, reserved comment on
the plan until Gissendanner could draft and
"I would be very open to hear his
recommendation," Graham said. "I'm not going to
write a blank check that I would approve his
recommendation until I (hear it)."
Halting marina construction will give the
resources department time to mount a defense
against more manatee kills, said Pat Rose, the
state's manatee coordinator. That plan might
include criteria for locating marinas in areas.
"Short of regulating all waters in the state,
utilizing a moratorium is the most productive
thing we can do," he said. "We're not saying this is
forevermore, just that it's getting out of hand."
Rose said he will recommend that the
moratorium apply to any marina with more than
one boat slip per 100 feet of shore.
staff. If it comes up at the Commission, there will
be a five to zero vote against it.
"Not only that, there's no way the State will
agree to a lease of water rights in front of
the Swimming Pool Hall of Fame."
Zuro would need clearance from the State
Department of Natural Resources to build on the
According to Bill Humber, executive director of
the Swimming Pool Hall of Fame, Zuro's next step
if he intends going through with his plan,is to get
the approval of the Fort Lauderdale Zoning and
Planning Board. The Zoning Board's action, as
that of the Marine Advisory Board's is not
binding. Both boards advise the City
"I plan to fight this thing all the Way," Humber
declared, "and to go as high as I can."
Humber reported in this connection that he has
written to U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater, R-
Arizona, for his support. Goldwater is an
Honorary Chairman of the Swimming Hall of
Fame and holds its Gold Medallion awarded in
Philip J. Montante, a lawyer specializing in

termed Zuro's new docks "an inconvenience"
because they impede access to the Fort
Lauderdale Iolice sub-station on the grounds of
the Swimming Hall of Fame.
In addition to the docks, a five-story building is
under construction by another developer on the
south side of the Hall of Fame. The builder is Dave
Alderman, owner of Carlo's and Pepe's Cantina on
the 17th Street Causeway. The structure will

Downtown Marina Concept
by M.G. Swift
A concept for a marina in downtown Fort

envision "a large slip marina south of the (New

into Smoker's Park." Presently this area is a
parking lot and an underutilized park; a floating
restaurant "Ancient Mariner" occupies the
current riverbank adjacent to the proposed
Citing the Marine Charreltte Report of 1984, the
executive director of marine trade group, Van
Snider, praised the City of Fort Lauderdale, the
Sasaki Associates consulting firm and the
Waterfront Property Owners for molding "the
Riverwalk proposal to highlight the boating
aspects of our community." Through the
aggressive advocacy of the Waterfront Property
Owners, Sailboat Bend .Civic Association,

River Civic Association, the city and its
consultants altered its draft proposals for the
Riverwalk to include a "marine village" (at

The city and Sasaki have plans for three
condos to be built on the site where the M.I.A.S.F.

Welcome to the sport of windsurfing.
Enthusiasts describe it as being both relaxing and
exciting, an enjoyable past-time for anyone
seeking to increase athletic prowess. And if
you're thinking of taking a course, windsurfing
instructors warn that you may find yourself
addicted. to your new hobby. Professional
windsurfing instructor, Ray Uppstrom, explains it
this way, "The feeling of flight is overwhelming.
You become one with the wind and water,
working both elements at the same time. Its total
involvement and any type of stress or problems
you might be having completely disappear."
Windsurfing got its start in the 1960's when two
SCalifornians devised what was then thought to be
an elaborate Surfboard with a colorful sail
attached. Popularity spread to Europe, Asia and
Canada, but the U.S.was slow to catch on. Today,
the sailboard is considered an expert sailing
instrument, and as a result more and more
Americans are manning the boards.
Evolutionary in design, a windsurfer steers his
board byithe means of his sail and the position of
his feet. This new method of sailing can be self-
taught but officials in the sport recommend
under-going professional lessons by qualified
instructors. For a nominalfee, beginners are
shown basic techinques starting with practice
time on a dry land simulator, a device used to
familarize students with the workings of a
sailboard. Next comes ocean or lake instruction
where the real learning begins. Here. students
can expect to wobble around and spend much of
their time taking plunges in the water, but don't
despair. Instructors report that after a few short
hours of practice time a' sense of balance is
acquired Alas! You've got control and are able to
keep both feet firmly planted on your board.
After a brief stay in Miami, Liberte de Timex will
begin a ten-city boardsailing regatta series of the
tast coast, arriving in New York Harbor July 2,
1986, in time for the July Fourth festivities.
Sailboard enthusiasts from Florida to New
York will be watching outthis spring and summer
for the inaugural regatta series--an exciting 10-
city tour. Over 150 windsurfers are expected to
compete in each city; on the tour which begins
April 26 in Miami and concludes with the
championship finals July 6 in New York.
Certainly the most impressive feat related to
the tour will take place prior to the Miami regatta
when world champion sailboarder Stephane
Peyron is expected to complete a record-breaking
The 24-year-old Frenchman will be joined by
countryman, Alain Pichavant during the 5,000

championships. Sponsored by the Greater

hundreds of beachgoers came to watch the

Learning the art of windsurfing is equivalent to
riding a bicycle, say instructors -- few are
incapable of over-coming the obstacles.
Once the basic fundamentals are mastered,
intermediate and advanced classes will'sharpen
and expand existing skills, allowing windsurfers
to progress as far as their dedication and
sailboards can take them. Some experts in the
field jump Hawaiian waves, tackle Force 6 winds
and perform acrobatic feats, while others prefer
an occasional weekend jaunt on a local lake or
beach. So, whether you're goal is hard-core
racing competition or just a little recreational fun,
windsurfing offers something for everyone.

any sailboat over 23 feet.
The course is described as a "24-mile sprint
that will test competitors under a variety of
conditions--sheltered bay waters, the blue of the
Gulf Stream, and navigation through channels to
and from seaward."
FOMA's Tom Mestrits says that "this will be a
professional race, straight, with no handicap."
Mestrits added, "We're trying to shoot for the
fastest race under sail, and so we need people to
enter from all over the state, which would make
this race really unique."
The race's organizers also want to encourage
non-boaters to watch the event. To that end, a
special area in Bill Baggs State Park will be
reserved to watch the race. Watchers will be able
to see the race's start and finish while enjoying
food and refreshments.
Trophies will be awarded to the fastest, overall
winner. First, second, and third place finishers in
each class will also be awarded trophies.

The Port Commission:
Are Its Days Numbered?
By Nathan L. Roberts
Is the day coming when that-sometimes listing
vessel called the Port Everglades Commission
will sail no more?
Margaret Collins, executive director of the Port
Everglades Association, says yes.
Michael (Mike) Marinelli, chairman of the
Commission and a Commission member for the
past 11 years, says "the only one talking that way
is the Port Everglades Association. ItJAas 30
disgruntled people out of 400 port businesses. No,
there's very little possibility that the Port
Commission will be done away with."
Collins holds that if 1986 were not an election
year, the Broward Legislative Delegation would
introduce a local bill with virtually assured
passage that would take the port out of the hands
of the Commission and turn it over to the Broward
Marinelli pooh-poos the idea.
"The port is making money," he says. "We made
more money last year (1985) than ever before. We
have been making money every year for a long
time and bringing in new business every year and
increasing income from year to year. We have an
economic impact on '3roward and the
surrounding area amouriing to a half billion
dollars. With that kind rf economic clout, it's no
wonder others are tryi;ig to get their hands on the
port. Years ago, when the port wasn't bringing in
that kind of money, no one was interested in it."
Collins does not challenge the port's economic
benefit. If anything, she says,"the port's
economic impact is in spite of the Commission.
What the port suffers from is not lack of income
but from neglect and mismanagement."
"It is well known," she says, "that the Port
Everglades Commission has a reputation as a
political circus. Look, for example, at the sudden
firing of port director James J. Connally."
Connally, who had another eight months to go
on his $58,000 a-year contract, had come under a
cloud because of a drinking problem. "He hadn't
had a drink in seven months when he was fired,"
"The firing," she notes "had to do with
Connally's opposition to a Commission plan for a
$100,000,000 bond issue. He was flattened because
he stood in the way of a Commission majority
steamroller bent on having its own way."
Asked what the bond issue would have done for
the port, Collins replied "I'll be darned if I or
anyone else -- including the Commission
proponents themselves -- can answer that."
The vote on Connally's firing, which came at
the end of the January 30th Commission meeting,
was four to three on a motion by Stan Harris.
Voting for it were chairman Marinelli, vice-
chairman Waiter Brown, Joseph DeLillo and
Harris. Voting against were Alan Marks, Gene
Fitzgerald and Herb Myers. Fitzgerald and Myers,
who returned three days earlier with Connally
from a port business trip to the Orient, termed the
firing "an outrage."
Connally had succeeded in his relatively brief
term as port director in bringing substantial new
business to the port.
The Commission has appointed an executive
search committee headed by Walter Brown to find
a replacement for Connally.
In the meantime, Connally's salary is being
withheld, with lawyers for him and the
Commission in a taffy-pull over the freeze.
Collins, for her part, is a staunch advocate of
eliminating the port commission in favor of an
"Airport/Seaport Department of Broward County
government reporting directly to the county
The Port Everglades Association presented its
views in .a "white paper" at the February 4th
meeting of the Broward County Commission. The
Commission responded by adopting a resolution
stating its willingness to operate the port
provided the Broward Legislative Delegation
could get-the change-over through the State
According to Collins, that will happen in 1987. It
might have happened this year, she conjenctures,
if it were not an election year.
Studying the plan submitted by Collins' group
are the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida, the Fort Lauderdale/Broward Board of
Realtors andthe Propeller Club, with task forces
named by Ioject Horizon, the New Broward
Committee of 100 and the Broward Workshop
looking into how the port performs and is
Collins is firm in her belief that the Port'
Commission's days are numbered.

Dockage for this in-the-water show will be in
Marina Bays' private bay off Ft. Lauderdale's
New River. In addition to permanent and
temporary floating docks, provisions have been
made for trailerable boats to be shown on land.
There will be tents with exhibits of companies and
individuals selling boating accessories,
electronics, services such as insurance, used
boat financing boatyards, marinas and other
items of direct interest to used boat buyers and
This Show & Sale is not your typical boat show.
To begin with it is more of a sale than a show, a
place for individuals to sell their own boats. New.
-boats aren't eligible so there won't be any
manufacturer or dealer displays. What you will
find instead is an unusually wide variety of boats
of various makes and descriptions including late
model production boats from Europe, Far East
and throughout the U.S. There will also be custom
built boats and some homebuilt boats.
Dania Marine Flea Market Chooses
Dania, Florida, U.S.A. -- The 8th Annual Marine
Flea Market will return to Dania Jai Alai this May,
9th, 10th and 11th. The three day event
transforms the Fronton parking lot into a large
nautical swap shop.
The Marine Flea Market, originated in 1979 as.a
service to the boating industry and yachtsmen
alike, has grown each year and in 1985, sellers
from the entire eastern seaboard of the United
States occupied inore than 300 booths selling
every imaginable nautical item from fine shark's
tooth jewelry to engine parts and used boats.
Because the Marine Flea Market occurs only
one weekend a year, it allows the major boat
manufacturers the opportunity to sell large
quantities of teak, upholstery, instruments and
accessories that they would not be able to sell
through normal channels. Small groups of
private individuals rent booth space to sell the
"nautical treasures" found while cleaning out
their garages and dock boxes of accumulated
boat parts and fishing tackle.
The Marine Flea Market offers everyone with
an interest in boats or things nautical a relaxed
and casual atmosphere to browse through more
than eight acres of sales booths. Free parking and
a spacious food service area mean that buyers
can take hours to inspect the merchandise and
negotiate an agreeable price: This year the
Marine Flea Market will open to the public at noon
on Friday, May 9th, 9:00 AM on Saturday, May
10th and Sunday, May 11th. Admission for adults
is $2.00, children are free and there's acres of free
parking. Sellers are admitted by advanced

Ask Big Al
I have a 20 ft. Welcraft that I would like to trailer
to the Keys and the lakes, and I keep it out of the
water when not in use. Will I have any problems
with keeping the boat out of'the water and what
kind of trailer should I buy?
First, if I bought a used trailer I would buy a
tandem so that I could get home if I had no spare.
Then I would get Buddy bearings that I could lube
regularly when I launched the boat. My bearings
and wheel lugs would be in perfect condition and
my lights and wires would be working. A good
winch with a good cable (power if possible) would
be a must. The trailer must be in prime condition
as a road breakdown is a horror. If you use the
boat often and drain and clean it when you do,
you should have no problems at all. Keep it dry
I have a 28 foot boat with an over heating
problem on one engine. Have water filters on both
engines which I have cleaned and I have checked
the exhaust flow out of the exhaust & one is warm
and the other is really hot. Where do I start to
- First make sure the water pump belt is tight and
in good condition. Second look at the impellor on
the raw water pump & check the blades for cracks
missing loles or deterioration I would remove
the thermostat & check it for accuracy. A
defective thermost will heat up an engine fast. If
your engines are fresh water cooled, make aflow
test on your heat exchanger to make sure it is not
clogged & is evolving properly. If over heating
still persits a'mechahic can cireck tmiing, head-
gaskets, manifolds & heat risers.
My single engine Bayliner runs fine for about
one-half hour then slows up, speeds up, runs fine,
then slows up and sometimes stalls. It starts right
up again and may run swell the rest of the day.
Everything points to.a clogged filter in the line
or carburetor, if filters are clean maybe the fuel
line is kinked or clogged, when gas goes through
to the carburetor the engine will run ok. When not
enough fuel gets through the engine will slow or
quit. Also you can check fuel pump for pressure
and see if gas tank vents are open.
Have a trawler with a Lehman diesel 6 Cly.
About 7 yrs old. Have faithfully changed oil &
filter regularly. Now the oil is getting grayish &
blowing at the dip stick (oil check). Do I need a
major overhaul or what?
.Oil that is grayish & contaminated has water in
it I don't know if your engine is fresh or salt water
cooled. Water in the oil can come from a blown
head gasket, a cracked manifold, a bad heat
exchanger, etc. Do not use engine with this
condition. Check with a good diesel mechanic to
pin point leak and repair at once as major
problems are there.

There are a couple of good jazz jams going on
in the Grove these days. A fairly new club, Ensign
Bitters, is located in the Mayfair Plaza. It is
connected to the Mayfair House, the posh hotel
where David Letterman and his crew stayed while
in Miami, filming their Feb. 1st Special. Ensign
Bitters is actually a private club open to hotel
guests and yearly patrons for a small
membership fee. However, Monday nights if you
say you're a friend of the musicians, you will be
admitted no questions asked. And what a great
jam it is! In residence is the Billy Marcus Quartet
with Billy on piano, Pete Minger on trumpet and
fleuglehorn, Don Mosely on bass, and various,
sundry drummers including the likes of Duffy
Jackson, Guy Vivaros, Stet Bagby and Bill
Peebles, who played with Ray Charles for years.
Guest singer for the evening is Sandy Patton,
veteran chant of the Miami jazz scene. Her voice
has a warm, sensuous earthy quality that
envelopes one from the opening bars of tunes like
A NIGHT IN TUNISIA and IT DON'T MEAN A THING
IF IT AIN'T GOT THAT SWING. Other highlights of
the evening include Pete Minger's mellifluous
solo on the beautiful ballad, A TIME FOR LOVE and
Billy's rambunctiously virtuosic rendition of
HONEYSUCKLE ROSE. The room itself is very
elegant with a Deco ambiance. Period stained
glass borders the interior and the waitresses
are wonderfully outfitted in atire of the 30s.
Check out Ensign Bitters from 8:00 P.M.-1:00
A.M. Monday nights! Also in the Grove, the Encore
Room at the Coconut Grove Playhouse has
recently opened with singer Roz Ryan supported
by the Ray Cousins trio. Roz is from N.Y. and was
formerly one of the leads in the Fats Waller hit,
AIN'T MISBEHAV"IN. She has a great show voice;
she can really tear jerk you on the Billy Holiday
ballads and then turn around and belt out a
showstopper like MY MAN, made famous by the
immortal Judy Garland. The Ray Cousins trio
does a good job but would be substantially better,
could they add a couple of horns for a more full
Sunday night at the same location, China
Valles from WTMI radio host a jazz jam from 8:30-
1:30 A.M. The Sunday that I was there, a plethora
of sterling musicians including Dolf Castelano
keyboards, Tommy Toyama on vibes, originally
from Hawaii, Cassie Rubico, also on keyboards
and Sandy Patton, vocals were all contributing
their efforts to the festivities. Guest vocalist from
the Cajun House in Ft. Lauderdale was Ms. Toni
Bishop singing her unequaled, drivingly bluesy
version of GEORGIA. She and her
mentor/entreprenuer friend, PJ,are soon to open
a jazz cafe/art gallery in the Searstown Plaza at
the corner of S. Federal and Sunrise Blvd. in Ft.
Lauderdale. We are anxiously awaiting their new
Las Olas Art Festival
by Rachel Leach
Throughout the year, there are several cultural
events that take place on charming Las Olas
Boulevard just east of downtown Fort
Lauderdale. However, in just a few short weeks,
the most exciting and entertaining event of them
all will once again close off traffic to one of Fort
Lauderdale's most beautiful streets. The Las Olas
Art Festival is here to help celebrate Fort
Lauderdale's 75th birthday and what a festival
it's going to be. Every one of its past 17 years of
existence has been bigger & better thanthe year
before. This year on March 22nd and 23rd from
10:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M., we'll be able to view and
enjoy the works of 260 artists from 32 states and 2
countries, Canada and Colombia. There will be
everything from jewelry to photography, paint to
leather and basketry to graphics all surrounded
by the ambiance of Las Olas Boulevard.
Sunshine Artist Magazine gave the Las.Olas.Art
Festival the highest rating for Florida Art
Festivals which adds to its prestigious
reputation. An artist desiring to participate in the
show must plan early and face a lot of
competition. According to Bea Yiani!os. Public
Relations Chairwoman for the festival, the
application deadline for the March event is.
October 7th. The artist must also accompany their
application with five milimeter slides of their
work Then they must sit back and wait and hope
until mid December when notifications of
acceptance of rejection are sent out. This year,
1500 applications were sent in and many hard
decisions hadto be made to choose just the right
artists. Since the show only extends from S.E.
6th Avenue to S.E. 12th Avenue on Las Olas, effort
must be made to keep the number of exhibits low
enough to still have room for the overwIhelming
amount of people who come to enjoy this show.
Now one can see how just being selected to
participate in this festival is honor and
recognition all its own, but these artists will be
judged still further. Early Saturday morning- Mr.
Douglas G. Schultz of the Albright-Knok Art
Gallery in Buffalo. New York will make his rounds
of the exhibits and decide which artists will
receive a portion of the $5.000.00 award money.
Excellent organization has been another key to
the success of this festival. You won't find the
problems here that plague other art shows.
Squatters beware! Each artist and their exhibit is
well accounted for. The area is patroled and
secured in such a way that no one can exhibit
their wares at the festival who didn't register and
go through the process like everyone else. And if
you need assistance or information; just hail
down any one of the festival helpers She'll be
clad in a bright yellow smock and she'll be happy
to help you

The Broward Soil And Water
By Marilyn Damon
Broward Soil And Water Conservation District
co-sponsored .an. .environmental workshop
with Bethune Elementary School last month. The
speakers included Ned Webster and Diane
Vassily from MSUS School of Environmental
Education. MSUS promotes .intellectual
development through experience derived from
direct encounters with the outdoor environment.
Featured are local history and interrelationships
of the seacoast, weather and people. BSWCD,
LEEF and MSUS co-sponsored a one-day
canoeing field trip in island mangrove swamps
among the semi-tropical islands of the upper
Florida Keys on March'8, 1986.
BSWD is busy putting its annual report
together. It was a "good year" for BSWCD and our
annual report will show in detail the many
projects completed. Copies will be available to
the general public.
BSWCD welcomes Jo Ann Medale, a new
supervisor, to the Board. Jo Ann has been very
active in the past on our coastal projects while
functioning as an associate supervisor, BSWCD
actively promotes the use of compost on all
beach restoration projects as a best management
practice.-With the cooperation of Broward County
Streets and Highways Nursery Division and the
County Commissioners, compost is available
through BSWCD for beach restoration and
revegetation projects. Cooperator agreements
signed between coastal cities and BSWCD allow
BSWCD to design and implement coastalerosion
control projects. We welcome suggestions from
the general public regarding future projects.
Support from concerned citizens is sought to
protect the mangroves remaining in Port
Everglades. These mangroves provide a habitat
for the endangered manatees.
Broward County needs a mangrove
preservation ordinance. Currently there is no
enforceable ordinance. Said ordinance should
include the requirement that when mangroves are
destroyed by developers, restitution in the form
of replantings of mangroves be made mandatory.
Mangroves function as nurseries for baby fish
and a giant filter system for the wealth of flotsam
and jetsam that Mother Nature chooses to throw
at our coastal shorelines.
Mangroves appear as a medium-height (10-20
feet) thicket of fleshy-leaved woody plants in
coastal areas. In most areas ot its range the red
mangrove, Rhizophora mangle, is the most
seaward emergent plant. Prop roots are
characteristic of this plant while the black and
white species send up modified vertical roots to
facilitate in respiration.
There are four types of mangroves: TREES -
Black mangrove, Avicennia germinans; Button
mangrove,Conocarpus erectus; Red mangrove,
Rhizophora mangle; White mangrove,
The amount of protein and nutrients produced
by an acre of mangroves far surpasses the
amount of protein and nutrients produced by an
acre of land. Mangrove are the pioneers of new

Sea Rescue Changes A Name
by Isaac Corkland
This is a sequel to the piece that appeared in the
Waterfront News last issue. Issac "Corky"
Corkland, the author, died suddenly last month.
Corky did "not go gently into that good night". A
retired New York lawyer, Mr. Corkland moved to
Florida, took up writing, married his World War
One sweetheart, Martha Munzer (who also writes
for the Waterfront News) and continued to do
consulting work right up to his death.
Gershon awoke surprised to see it was
daylight. He thought he hadn't slept. His muscles
protested as he tried to stand. His bare feet were
blue from the cold. Why hadn't he thought to put
a pair of socks in his jacket pocket? He looked
toward the still burning fire and saw that the pile
of mattresses and furniture was greatly
diminished. He stepped out from his spot between
the airshaft and bulkhead and saw that the deck
now tilted so sharply that the fantail was almost
submerged in the lead colored waters. Gershon
went to therail to scan the seas. The horizon was
empty. He strained his eyes willing something to
be out there. There was nothing.
Teams of sweating men pumped the water from
the holds in a losing battle against the sea. At
noon a weary Captain called everyone to a
meeting on deck and advised them to pray. "We
have done everything in our power," he said.
Silent tearful families clustered close to the
men who stood at the rails peering into the
distance, each hoped to be the first to spot a
rescue ship. Crew members distributed food but
there were few takers. Franic panic had given
way to hoplessness. As night descended Gershon
made his way forward and lashed himself to the
railing with his belt. When the doomed ship sank
he'd be the last to go down. He thought about his
wife and his dead mother. Memories turned into
nightmares. He'd awaken to start the cycle anew.
At dawn a shout roused him. He glanced aft and
saw excited men waving toward the east. He
searched the east. He searched the seas until he
spotted the approaching vessel. His heart
became a lead ball in his chest everytime it was
lost from view behind a long rolling wave. He
didn't breath again until it reappeared. He sniffed
the air -- it wasn't possible! The metalic salt air
was carrying with it another odor, familiar yet
foreign -- manure! Manure and urine! They were
being rescued by a cattleship. Crew members on
both vessels semaphored, their signal flags
snapping in the animal scented breeze.
Gershon watched fascinated but horrified as
the sailors on the rescue ship swore and shoved
at the frightened creatures pushing them into the
The cattle's bellows and the sounds of the
heavy bodies splashing into the ocean made
Gershon thankful that his blanket muffled the
sound. The waters churned, patches of gray foam
dotted its surface. Gershon caught his breath as
the cattleship's crew members were forced to
hack off a cow's leg that had gotten caught in the
rigging. The mutilated animal sank immediately
turning the foam pink, then red in widening
Gershon saw a great triangular fin moving
through the carnage. He yelled, but no one paid
Gershon turned from the appalling sight and
watched a sailor run to the bow to catch a line
that had been tossed from the cattleship's long
boat. The sailor yelled for help as he pulled in the
line hand over hand. He was joined by other crew
members and together they hauled the six inch
hawser aboard and secured it to the capstan.
People milled and shouted and children cried
and clung to their parents but no one seemed to
know what was going on or what they were
supposed to do.
The Captains voice finally penetrated the
sounds on the deck.
"Ladies and Gentlemen -- please -- your
Everyone's head turned to the bridge where the
Captain stood, bull horn in hand.
"We are being towed from this immediate area
so we can make,.a safe and speedy transfer of
passengers to the rescue vessel. I ask you all to
stay quietly at the lifeboat stations which have
been assigned to you. When the tow is completed
the officers will give you specific directions --
Gershon looked to the sea and realized the truth
of the Captain's words. The number of sharks had
increasedand the cattleship's long boat was
having difficulty returning to it's mother ship.
Smoke rose from the cattleship's stacks as it
got under way. The six inch hawsers that
connected it to the SPRAY creaked and twanged
as they stretched under the strain of taking the
helpless vessel in tow. Gershon was afraid they's
W r N
snap, but they held firm and slowly the SPRAY
began to move.
When they were out of the shark's immediate
range the lifeboats were lowered, but because of
the ship's sharp cant the lines fouled and had to
be cut. The lifeboats slid nose first into the sea
and disappeared under the black water.
It's no use, thought Gershon, there's no hope for
us. But as the thought formed, two of the
cattleship's lifeboats threw lines aboard the
SPRAY. The ship was down so low in the stern
that the passengers could step directly from the
deck into the small boats. Gershon wished the
ships were in a different position or that the wind
would shift because the overpowering stench
from the rescue vessel was beginning to make
On the second trip the life boats brought huge
pots of steaming coffee. It was the first hot food
since the night of the accident when all below-
deck engine room and galley fires had been
extinguished to prevent possible explosions.
The strong, hot liquid revived Gershon's spirits.
He found the officer who had been in charge of his
work party when they'd emptied #5 Hold. "What's
going to happen now," he asked.
"The Captain has determined the SPRAY is
seaworthy enough to be towed back to Cork,"
said the officer," so those passengers who wish
to, may remain on board all others will be
transported to the rescue ship."
"I'm staying right here then," replied Gershon.
"I'd rather sail on a damaged ship than a floating
Upon arrival in Cork the cattleship claimed the
SPRAY as it's prize and Gershon headed to the
synagogue to thank God for his rescue.
In the Jewish religion it is the custom to add a
letter to one name when.one is rescued from
death. This indicates a new start in life. The Rabbi
added a "D" to Korklan making it Korkland. When
the congregation heard my father's name and
learned he had peddled in Ireland twice to earn his
passage to America, leaving from Cork and that
he had been rescued at sea and safely, returned to
Cork they declared it a miracle. The rabbi
changed the spelling of his name from Korkland
to Corkland. At the rabbi's suggestion, the
congregation escorted my father to the
courthouse to have his name changed on his
passport. A parade was organized in town to
escort him to his third departure from Cork.
Our's is the only branch of the family to add a
letter and start the name with a C instead of a K.

for this purpose. In this article we will observe

A Water-Oriented History of Southeastern Florida &
Vicinity by Patsy West
It is hard to imagine South Florida's rivers and
bays full of schools of manatees with no motor
boats to scar, maim, and kill Yet, in the 19th
century, the manatee was being commercially
hunted, as it's flesh was considered a delicacy
In the first half of the 19th century. South
Florida's Whitewater Bay manatees were
commercially hunted by the Seminole Indians.
They jerked the meat which was then sold to a
"Spanish" market (presumably Cuban) according
to the writings of Andrew P. Canova.
During South Florida's Homesteading Era in the
latter half of the 19th century, settlers seldom had
trouble providing meals for their families If their
luck was bad, Seminole hunters always had a
good supply of meal: live hogs, vension, and
often manatee. Manatee meat was being offered
at an inflated price of 50 per pound in 1875,
reflecting its deli status. Some say that it tasted
like fine pork.
An ornithologist from the Chicago Field
Museum, Charles Barney Cory, whose Florida
base of operations was originally located on New
River in the 1890's, noted in his publication
Hunting and Fishing in Florida, that New River
was "one of the best localities on the coast for
manatee." He recorded the Seminoles' method of
seasonally hunting manatee from their New River
camps. Pursuing the manatees by dugout canoe,
one was speared. It immediately sank to the
bottom. However, attached to the spear was a
buoy which showed where the mammal lay.
When it surfaced for air, it was shot and towed to
shore to be butchered.
Canova's parting words on the state of the
manatees from his 1885 publication Life and
Adventures in South Florida were: There is no
doubt that the manatee is fast becoming an
extinct animal... The sea cow will pass out of
existence ... and the only remaining trace of its
former existence will be a few old bones.
One hundred years later, manatees are
fortunately witnessing a prolonged lifespan and
continuance of their species through public
awareness programs: waterway signage,
bumper stickers, lectures, and the media. We can
only hope that they will be around 100 years from

International Swimming Hall of Fame annual
board meeting, a changing of the guards took
plate. Bill Humber, formerly of Birmingham,
Alabama and manufacturers representative for
Heldor Seablue, became ISHOF's new executive
director. Humber replaces Buck Dawson who
served as executive director since the Hall's
inception in 1965. Dawson will serve as executive
Humber's top priority at the Hall is the building
addition. "A Hall of Fame for swimming is
different than other sports. Football has just one
discipline -- football. Swimming, on the other
hand, includes diving, synchronized swimming,
water polo and the swimming pool industry to
name a few. With all of these new disciplines and
new honorees, we have run out of space."
Kicking off the 1986 fundraising campaign will
be a tribute to Big Mac McNeme,,a member of the
pool and spa industry for the past 40 years. Board
of Trustee member Fred Wagner has organized
the roast, dinner and dancing with Les Brown and

UWaterway Cleanup '86
From This Dock
by Capt. Bill Hard
By. the time the "Waterway Cleanup" will be
history and much appreciated by all who see our
waterways. A very big Fort Lauderdale thanks to
Fort Lauderdale Jaycees and Marine Industries
Association for taking on a task of this size.
Before this cleanup occurred we noticed some
treasures amidst the floatsom found during high
water along New River; North or South Fork and
all adjoining tributaries included. Among the
valuables you could find enough citrus fruit and
coconuts to open a large roadside market,
assorted planks of lumber, timbers and an
occasional piling to build another dockside bar
and grill, with plastic containers and cans that
could keep the newly constructed bar stocked for
Chunks and bits of styrofoam to support a
dozen floating docks, a great abundance of palm
parts, including trunk, to keep the Seminoles
Chickee Hut business booming. Boxes, toys,
clothing, and on rare occasion you can see a
healthy Tarpon trying to roll on the surface while
avoiding all our discard. It is "our discard" except
for the palm branches.: We can blame mother
nature for that one. Unfortunately, most debris is
not intentional and it's great some will take the
time to help remove it.
The Boat Show has also come and gone making
my wife a very happy woman since I fought off
the "New Boat" urge and will keep the old scow
floating for another year. It is so difficult to pass
up unpitted chrome, clean fresh gelcoat, smooth
seat cushions and a canvas top that won't leak.
Anyone know of another boat show soon? I'm
changing my mind. Thankfully there are some
good Marine mechanics in and about our city and
they keep things turning- some mechanical and
some financial, like my checkbook.
It's all part of the joys of boating. I'm sure the
horse owner out in Davie has his share of fun
taking loving care of his animal as we do with our
boats, and veterinarians take the place of the
mechanic. The other man's yard is always
greener, especially if there's a horse in it.
Which ever your pleasure horse in Davie,
boats on New River, we all want the same goal -
keeping our surroundings clean and fresh.
Thanks again Jaycees and Marine Industries for a
job well done!

anglers have caught nice stringers of Bass since
last month. The key is Wild Shiners. It takes a
little know how and effort on your part but the
results will be well worth it. The Bass have been

SAWGRASS RECREATION AREA
Fishing at Sawgrass has been good on one day
and the next it could be terrible. The most
productive area has been the east canal between
the second and third spillways..Topwater
Rapalas and Buzz baits have taken fish (when
they decide they Want to be taken). Live Shiners
have been accounting for a few Bass. Richard
Pruitt has been killing the Crappie with crappie
jigs. The best areas for Crappie would be the
second and third spillways along U.S. 27 with live
Missouri Minnows being the best bait.

"Fishing Classic Announces 1986
by Judy Carr
The conservation-oriented South Florida Classic
looks forward to another spectacular tournament
June 27 and 28, 1986.
Benefitting the fish as well as the fishermen,
the South Florida Fishing Classic has made the
environment the big winner on its list. The
tournament has as its ultimate goal to divide the
entry fees equally between the environment and
the angler's prizes.
Eligible species this year have been limited to
wahoo and dolphin each with a 15 pound
minimum weight requirement. The heaviest
wahoo and dolphins will be worth $10,000 each as
the top prizes. The South Florida Fishing Classic
Committee has elected to exclude the king
mackerel from the list of eligible species because
of the decimation of the kingfish population in
South Florida. We hope by our action of not
fishing for kings during the tournament that the
Fishing Classic will lead the way in aiding to
restore the king mackerel fisheries.
The Fishing Classic set a precedent its first year
by,being the only tournament in South Florida to
be fished from four inlets simultaneously: Pal,
Beach Inlet; Hillsboro Inlet, Pompano Beach; Port
Everglades, Fort Lauderdale and Government
Cut, Miami. Competition was keen between inlets
to see which produced the most and biggest fish.

Rig For Waterspouts!
by Bill Lange
As a skipper safety.means knowing how to
protect yourself, your crew and your vessel from
the various dangers one may encounter. For most
of them there is a preventative answer and there
is a lot you can do to avoid the danger.
But "Rig for Waterspouts!" is about the only
command or safety measure possible in the event
of a tornado or waterspout. Knowing about them
is a weather conundrum, "what is called onething
over land and another over water?"
A lot of boating's danger comes from severe
weather with winds or seas overpowering the
unprepared, unaware or untrained skipper.
Tornado awareness is one part of this. The
National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) has a Radio Alarm
Warning Service Device which is tested daily
before noon. In some areas there are tornado
drills ashore. The infamous tornado alley is
Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
Florida is the state with the most tornadoes,
after those three, and 61 persons killed, 2100
injured, $320 million property damage is the
score. Many twisters turn out to be relatively
weak, or over unpopulated areas, but the
increase in boaters off southeast Florida is
resulting in many more twister reports. You will
hear .a lot more tornado warnings north of our
area but a twister can occur at any time in
southeast Florida. Spring is the most usual
season for them, 68% being March to June, with
21% being July to October.
Tornadoes are formed over land but may then
move over water. They are the strongest, most
violent system in our atmosphere. The funnel is
counter-clockwise wind, of 200 to even 500 miles
per hour, twisting upward. Condensation causes
the funnel cloud wall, which looks black when
Tornadoes move rapidly, 20 to 40 miles per
hour or even a rare 70. Thus warning time is
relatively short or often nonexistent. Certain
weather data may allow the National Weather
Service to forecast a "tornado watch" for a
specific area and time frame. You will hearthis on
the NWS weather channel. If a tornado actually
occurs the "watch" will be upgraded to a "tornado
warning". Also the USCG will flash a "Special
Marine Bulletin" on VHF Channel 16 with details
on another channel.
Tornadoes often are buried in very heavy
thunderstorm movements, or hidden by
darkness, so you may never see the
characteristic long funnel cloud. This may start
as a festoon or cone hanging from the roundish
black udders ("mamatus") underside of storm
clouds, then gradually extend downward 1000 to
2000 feet to the surface where it does the damage.
The tip is small, twenty to two hundred yards in
diameter, and may remain in contact only ten to
thirty minutes before pulling back up into the
mamatus. Thd surface track is limited, being a
quarter mile wide and ten miles long
(exceptionally a mile wide and 50 or more lonq),
Boating Course Starts March 3
Boating Skills will be taught by the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary in a 10-lesson, five-week course,
starting March 3. Classes are held on Monday and
Thursday nights between 8 and 10 p.m. at Flotilla
3-2's base at 601 Seabreeze Blvd, Fort
Lauderdale (just south of Swimming Hall of
Fame). The instruction for the course is free. For
Boating Skills and Seamanship, text book, and
materials there is a modest charge. Classroom
work is designed for all boaters and their families
who want to enjoy boating with safety and
You and members of your family can sign up

and noon. Registrations are limited.
and is usually erratic, or zig-zag. Movement is
most frequently from southwest to northeast.
There may be several separate tornadoes
travelling parallel to a storm front.
A frequent description of a tornado is that "it
sounded like an express train just seconds before
it hit". Due to clouds, heavy rain or darkness the
victim never saw it.
Waterspouts are tornadoes formed over the
water, with the characteristics mentioned above,
but often far less powerful. Up to 12 spouts have
been seen at once; generally in the morning
contrasted with the afternoon tornadoes. Lots are
seen in the Keys from May to October.
But waterspouts may appear without storm
clouds. A single dark-based puff cloud (cumulus)
with a ragged lower edge may extend as a spout.
Only ten to two hundredfeet in diameter, this may
last only 15 minutes. The twister winds can be as
weak as 50 to 100 miles per hour; the funnel
moves slowly or even halts, and direction is very
erratic. There is also a "pseudo" waterspout
which starts upward from the water, surface
without any overhead cloud. These are very
What safety actions do you need to take?
1. Keep your own lookout for funnel clouds.
2. Try to avoid funnel cloud point of
touchdown by setting a full speed course at
right angles to the twister's track.
3. Everybody put on life jackets at once.
4. Batten all hatches. -No loose objects
topside or in cabins.
5. Securely attach handheld VHF, and flares
6. Stay with the boat. If you hear the express
train grab the life jackets and hang on.

Dining Out: A Flock Of Early-Bird
By Nedda Anders
You won't find South Florida's power brokers
or fashionable foodies hanging out at early-bird
dinners, not even those billed as twilight or pre-
theater menus. People with a taste for high living
and a bank balance to match disdain the dining
room that is filled to capacity even before the sun
sets. But if you're a voracious feeder, and more
concerned about check than chic, you'll be
interested in this listing of a few of Broward's
early-bird restaurants, where prices are fair and
the fare is generally good.
THE FISH GRILL Dania.
Joe Maggi's cozy little restaurant (just a cesta
shot away from Dania Jai Alai), offers twofer
dinners for $12.95, one for $6.95, from 4 to 6 p.m.
You start with a cup of creamy chowder or a
salad. An entree follows(steak, chicken or one of
eight fish specials), with potato or rice pilaf and a
vegetable. Beverage and dessert; homemade rice
pudding, jello, or cake, finish the meal. The chef
has a knowing hand with seasonings, and most of
the dishes are well conceived and flavorful. But
stay away from the swordfish. On a recent visit, I
was served several narrow ends of the fish, not a
whole slice, strung on a skewer before grilling.
The result was more vulcanite than tasty morsel
-of Xiphias gladius.But let's face reality: swordfish
is stratospherically pricey for an early bird.
People seem to love this place and 95 seats go
fast, so call ahead for reservations.
GIBBY'S Oakland Park.
Never underestimate the value of packaging:
the polished woods, homey brick, comfortable
chairs, and fresh greenery create a handsome
setting...one big reason for the popularity of this
large restaurant. Twilight dinners start at 4:30;
seating ends at 5:30 p.m. For $11.95, there's a
savory thick and creamy soup, a so-so salad, and
a generous and well-prepared entree. Prime ribs
of beef, roast duck or breast of chicken, and veal
parmigiana are your best bets. The fish is frozen
and less satisfactory. French apple pie, melon in
season, and ice cream or sherbet are dessert
choices. With 600 mouths to feed, the place is
noisy and the staff is harried. Still, Gibby's must
be doing lots that's right because early dinners
are usually sold out. Call for reservations.
MIKE'S CLAM BAR Sunrise.
Still on the trail of a bargain,on Oakland Park
Boulevard drive west to University, and you'll get
to a good no-nonsense fish place billing itself as
"the friendliest bar in South Florida." Don't bother
to dress: jeans, shorts, or sunsuit are fine. If
you're signed in by 6 o'clock, along with the price
of your entree you'll get a bowl of my favorite
chowder (spoon up generous dice of conch or
clam from the spicy brew), a crisp salad with a
fine dressing (I like the gorgonzola), and a glass
of respectable house wine, beer or .other
beverage. You won't go wrong ordering the
lemon-basted broiled scrod usually on the menu,
unassailably fresh and it includes a large baked
potato or french fries. A bargain at $5.95. The
other fish entrees may be frozen (ask your
friendly waitress). A generous one-pound
steamed Maine lobster at $10.95 is another good
choice. Dilute the butter sauce with clam broth
(which they gladly bring) to reduce calories and
cholesterol. No reservations: come early to avoid
L & N SEAFOOD GRILL Plantation.
This warm and inviting restaurant, part of the
Morrison family chain, evokes the gaslight era of
the 1920s but the food is contemporary, even
trendy (mesquite and other nuances). A twilight
dinner is offered from 4 to 6 p.m., Sundays
through Thursdays. Soup or chowder, unlimited
salad, a nice homemade biscuit, and a choice of
one of three entrees (the menu changes from day
to day) accompanied by potatoes or rice, and a
vegetable. At $7.95 you might find blackened
shark, or fettucini Alfredo. At $8.95, mixed grill of
dolphin snapper, or grouper and bluefish; maybe
even a filet of sole amandine. Yes, there's dessert
too: sherbet or lemon mousse. No reservations
but call ahead and put yourself on the preferred-

Divers Organize To Preserve
By Edward H. Wiser
Those who have followed the progress of Mel
Fisher's treasure hunting activities off Key West
probably also recognize the name of Duncan
Mathewson. As Chief Archeologist for Fisher's
firm,.Treasure Slavors, Inc., Duncan has shown.
an intense interest in historical research and
preservation of artifacts. The fact that so many
Snon-commercial items have been recovered from
NuestraSenora de Atocha and other wrecks and
carefully preserved attests to his dedication to
expanding our knowledge of our maritime
It is not surprising that he was among the first
to act to halt the mindless, uncontrolled
destruction of many shipwreck sites of historical
importance. The Atlantic Alliance for Maritime
Heritage Conservation is the result of this effort
to insure that excavations preserve artifacts and
garner as much knowledge as possible from each
According to Mathewson, "the Atlantic Alliance
is a national coalition devoted to the entire sphere
of maritime heritage conservation. One of its
principal objectives is to assist in. the
conservation and protection of historic ship-
wrecks. Accordingly, the Alliance is interested in
promoting a sustaining participatory
relationship among all sport divers, shipwreck
salvors, marine archeologists, and shipwreck
hobbyists interested in preserving the
archeological integrity of historic shipwreck
To aid those engaged in research, diving, and
actual excavations a six-point program has been
formulated. It requires that:
1) All search and salvage operations must be
conducted in a manner which at all times respects
wreck sites as finite and fragile time capsules
from the past. Every effort must be made to
respect the historical and archeological context
of each shipwreck including hull remains and all
cultural material associated with it. Continuous
systematic efforts .must be 'undertaken to
carefully record information about each
2) All recovered objects must be properly
stabilized and protected in a safe and secure
,place. Descriptive inventories and a
photographic record of all material together with
site maps, and provenience data should be made
available to State officials, archeologists,
museum directors, and historians interested in
3) An attempt should be made to seek
professional guidance from archeologists and
marine scientists concerning operating
procedures for locating, mapping, and recovering
objects of antiquity.
4) All efforts should be made to assist marine
archeologists and other interested researchers to
participate in the study of the wreck and its
5) Offers should be made to provide a
representative cross section of the recovered
assemblage to a local museumon a permanent
6) A report of the salvage operation and the
archeological findings should be written within
one year of the end of the project.
In furtherance of it's goal to "promote
underwater archeological participation through
education" the Alliance is offering a series of
training workshops throughoutthe United States
designed to educate sport divers interested in
shipwreck archeology. Seminars include data
interpretation, cataloguing, stabilization of
Cultural material, underwater mapping, and
Joyce S. Hayward, Regional Coordinator,
states that "the Alliance is sponsoring special
shipwreck projects which will allow on-site
archeological participation. The list of projects is
growing steadily and includes surveying a 19th
century steamer in Florida, an archeological
survey of Key West harbor, and the mapping of a
Spanish shipwreck in the Caribbean.

Florida Divers Concerned Over
by Bryan Brooks
South Florida Divers returning from an annual
visit to the manatees in Crystal River Florida are
concerned about the survival of the manatees
that use the warm spring waters of central
Florida during the winter months. This year's visit
showed a total lack of vegetation. The result was
much silting, low visibility and fewer manatees.
Charley Talley from Talley's Pro Dive shop in
Crystal River Florida stated that the fault lies with
the Federal Government, specifically, the Army
Corps of Engineers,whichhas control over the
spraying for weed control in Crystal River. Talley
stated that although there is no spraying during
the winter months when the manatees use the
warm water springs in central Florida,,he feels
that the copper sulphate used in the spraying gets
into the vegetation, such as the hydrilla, and
becomes a part of the food chain that ends up in
the manatees stomach.
When interviewed Talley said that he feels that
part of the problem is that care of the manatees is
under the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service because
of two Federal Acts, the Marine Mammals Act and
the Endangered Species Act.
Talley feels that one government agency isn't
going to bad mouth another agency. Talley said
that he doesn't think U.S. Fish and Wildlife is
doing their job in protecting the manatees.from
the spraying which the Army Corps of Engineers
is responsible for.
Talley mentioned a large group of manatees
which were killed on the west coast of Florida
some years back. According to Talley
investigation into the deaths showed that the
animals had large amounts of the herbicide
copper sulphate inside them.
For these reasons Talley feels that he had
counted less than 30 manatees in the springs
around Kings Bay where last year the herd was-
over 100. This year's herd had no calves in them
according to dive shop owner Talley.
Judith Delaney, an administrator with the Save
the Manatee Club, which is co-sponsored through
the Audubon Society in Maitland, Florida and the
Florida Department of Natural Resources,.
reported that the lack of vegetation this year was
caused by the two hurricanes that plagued
central and north west Florida this autumn.
Delaney felt that the reports she was getting
suggested that there had been a lot of salt water
intrusion into the fresh water springs.
The main vegetation that the manatees in the
springs feed upon is hydrilla which grows only in

In the state capitol Tallahassee, Earl Possardt
from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service agreed
with Delaney. Possardt said that after the
hurricanes this fall their investigation showed a
90 percent reduction in vegetation. In January
they sent a team back to the springs and there
was even a greater loss.
Possardt agreed with Talley in that there were
fewer Manatees around this winter. However he
feels this is because the lack of vegetation has
caused the manatees to branch out into other
rivers to look for food. Possardt states it's
fortunate that the Florida winter has been mild,
because now the manatees can safely leave the-
warm springs to look for food in other rivers
which would be quite cold if the weather had been
In reacting to the change that one government
agency won't bad mouth another agency,
Possardt said he feels no compunction about
criticizing the Army Corps of Engineers when he
feels they deserve it. However lately the Army
Corps of Engineers have been extremely sensitive
to the needs of the manatees in the springs area
according to Possardt.
The weed control Possardt says is done not
only with spraying but with mechanical
harvesters too. He states that there is no copper
sulphate in the chemical that is sprayed. There
has been very little spraying this winter and in no
case near the manatees, Possardt says. When
there is spraying it must be cleared with the U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service.
According to Possardt the funding for the
spraying in Citrus County goes through the Army
Corps of Engineers, the Florida Department of
Natural Resources into the County. He said that
80 percent of the bio-mass in the springs were
hydrila, a main food source for the manatees.
Concerning the deaths of the:manatees on the
west coast, Dan O'Dell an Associate Professor
from the University of Miami Marine Biology
Department was contacted. O'Dell stated that was
about three years ago in Fort Meyers Florida. tie
necropsy on the manatees revealed that the
cause of deaths was Red Tide, a problem: of
marine micro-organisms that occurs
occasionally off the west coast of Florida. To his
knowledge the spraying done in central Florida is
used without any copper in its makeup.
