would limit: .the; maximum speed on :the'

house and senate o.k. the profiled motion later in
April There is iaso movement afoot to establish a
boat operator's licensing program state wide
"We're trying to save some lives," said State
,Senator Tom McPherson. D-Fort Lauderdale, who.
proposed the I C.W' spedd limitI bill. "The
Intracdastal has'become the 1-95 of waterways."
:' Eisting boating laws would be amended .by,
McPherson's measure, giving each county in 'the
S state the option of setting noise standards on:
S major waterways by local ordinance.
Bud Brown, a member of Fort Lauderdale's.
Maiine Advisory Board and a local yacht broker,:
S disagrees "99.5 percent" of the boaters "go as
'slow as they. can, usually lower than the
proposed 25 miles per hour. It is nonsense, he
said, to tell boaters "they cann go faster." Others
oppose the speed limit because they maintain
that the faster a boat moves through water the
smoother the ride and the smaller the wake.
S McPherson decided to propose his bill after
.:an opinion poll he commissioned indicated that
;95 percent of the 800 respondents labeled speed
limits on the 4.C.W. the "#1" issue for the
Upcoming legislative session.
A proposal is being formulated for the 1987

Dear Editor:
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
rights
Perhaps this attitude by people here
'contributes to the problem ofthe 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.

SOtto L. Bortfeld

Reply by Nathan L. fioberts
Mr. Bortfeld would be 100 percent correct jf
SWaterfront News had "repeatedly" referredto the
students as "kids". As it happens, the News did
not apply that term to 'them. Yes, the college
Students were referred to as "kids" by some ofthe
persons who were interviewed. All that I -as a
reporter -- wrote and what Mr. Bortfeld read in
this connection was what I quoted..
SAs for patronizing the college students,
Waterfront News is certainly not guilty of that.
The last paragraph of the Spring Breakstory was,
in effect, a plea byFred Taylor, owner of the Wish -

.of the students as possible future residents and

Experts Dispute Bill That Replaces Vertical With Sloping Seawalls


by Nathan L. Roberts
Are sloping seawalls the wave of the future?
Three members of Florida's House of
Representatives hope to make it so. They have
pre-filed a bill -- HR 205 -- that would halt the
issuance of permits "to create a vertical seawall"
-- other than in a port-- if the wall needed repair or
replacement.
Thus, if a vertical seawall became damaged
through some traffic action on the water or fell
into the water as a result of storms or persistent
heavy rains or years of lashing by the wakes of
passing boats or for other causes, a permit would
be issued only for a sloping wall to replace it that
incorporated rip-rap with "suitable hydric
vegetation."
Estimates are, among other calculations, that
the new type of sloping seawall would do away
with as much as 12 feet of onshore waterfront. If a
property were 60 to 100 feet along the water, a
sloping seawall when graded would mean a loss
of 720 to 1200 square feet of running lawn.
Sponsors of HR 205 are Rep. Peggy Simone (R),
District 68, Bradenton; Rep. Tom C. Brown (D),
District 30, Daytona Beach, and Minority Leader
R. Dale Patchett, District 79, Vero Beach.
All three are involved in one way or another
with environmental issues. Rep. Simone is a
member of the House of Transportation
Committee. Rep. Brown is a member of
Committee on Natural Resources. Rep. Patchett,
in addition to membership on the House Rules
Committee, is in business as an environmental
consultant and real estate broker.
Their aim in seeking a change from vertical to
sloping seawalls is that, as described in their bill,
the latter affords "environmentally desirable
shore protection". This view is akin to one
expressed in a report entitled "Treasured Waters"
that came out of a mid-October 1984 Marine
Charette (an old English word meaning wheeled
conveyance or chariot) organized by the Marine
Task Force of the Fort Lauderdale/Broward
County Chamber of Commerce and co-sponsored
by the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida. One of the recommendations produced
by the sessions was that "where possible, new
seawalls must be sloped or consist of rip-rap
(preferably rock and boulder type) to reduce
wave reflection and provide, juvenile marine
habitats."
Van Snyder, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association (MIA) of South Florida and
co-chairman of the 1984 Charette, in commenting
of HR 205, stated that he was opposed to the bill
"as written". He termed the bill both "too broad
and too limiting," noting that while it advanced
and encouraged the principle of "environmentally
desirable shore protection," it limited
construction to only one typer of wall, the sloping
type.

He reported that the Marine Industries
Association of the State of Florida, meeting
March 26, recorded its opposition to the bill on the
same grounds. Snyder said that the local and
state associations' stand on the bill was
"uniform" and would be concerted.
Henry Talton, design engineer in the Fort
Lauderdale City Engineering Division, expressed
opposition to the bill for virtually the same
reasons.
"I don't like it," he said. "There are many ways
of constructing seawalls and many types of
seawalls but I feel that one and only one type of
seawall cannot be right for each and every
waterway or part of it, and each and every body
of water."
In this connection, he cited the Intracoastal
Waterway south of Port Everglades as it
approaches the Dania Beach Boulevard bridge.
Although the Waterway in this area has
considerable boat traffic, it is sparsly settled and
both banks have no seawall of any kind.
However, he explained, the Waterway has an
abundance of mangroves and "this vegetation
with its intricately laced root system takes up the
shock of the boat traffic and the action of the
tides."
"Mangroves are wonderful for what they do
and where they are in disrupting energy and
building land where the velocity of water action is
not great," he declared. "But mangroves aren't
suitable for everywhere and do not grow easily
everywhere. They take a long time to grow to the
point of being able to cope with the action under
and on top of the water.


"Seawalls become necessary in place of
mangrove where there is a high density of
population on the shoreline. In short, the seawall
allows the highest density usage of the land.
That's why there are no grassy banks in such
areas. Boat traffic and the tidal ebb and flow
would simply erode and ultimately eliminate
huge parcels of land. Grassy banks are found
mostly around lakes and rivers where human
activity is minimal and there is underwater
vegetation to cope with the tides."
In the case of HR 205, Talton said, "the bill is too
restrictive. Its language forecloses seawalls that
may be appropriate for a given area in favor of
only one type of seawall."

Future Of Ft. Lauderdale's Beach Debated
by Craig Lustgarten


Volume 3 Issue 2 April 15 May 15. 1986 Joterfront News


Over 200 interested residents. owners, and
businesses attended a recent Thursday night
meeting at City Hall to hear presentations and
debate the future of Fort Lauderdale's Beach.
Plans for beach redevelopment are being called
a menace by some who feel extensive
redevelopment would end spring break and the
100 million dollar income it brings in to the city
each year.
At the hearing. Richard Galehouse of Sasaki
Associates (hired by the city) described the
current studies that are being conducted. The
first phase of work being completed is a market
analysis of the next 10-15 years, including
preliminary estimate of what would happen on-
the beach in terms of new hotels, use of
restaurants, new boat slips, and future land use
or redevelopment projects.
Planners from Sasaki Associates are also
studying traffic problems along the beach. A
traffic.consultant has been employed to look at
the past studies and will attempt to define what
the traffic capacity of the roads is. how much
there is at the beach during spring break and at
other times of the year. and what additional
needs are in terms of road development and
parking.
The city is also working with a "task force" of
citizens to identify goals -- "What does citizenry,
the city. businesses, the people who live out at the
beach, the people who go there for recreation
want accomplished... that is perhaps different
from what is there today?"
Initial proposals for redevelopment include
medium-sized convention center which would
serve as the catalyst to bring new people and
money into the city. Surrounding the convention
center would be a ring of hotels that would
support convention business. Other new hotels
would also be constructed on the beach and there

would be a retail center/entertainment district
featuring night clubs, restaurants, and stores.
"Upscale fast food outlets" and specialty gift
shops would replace existing establishments
near and on the beach.
Also under consideration are additional condo
and townhouse apartments. The building of an
ampitheatre that would bring entertainment from
around the country is also a possibility.
Galehouse explained that changes are
necessary because "people who live here are
disenchanted with the beach as a place to go."
He added that last year's spring break
generated crowds that exceeded management
capabilities: "That size of crowd is not consistent
with families that want to go out there or for the
other tourists."
-But plans to build the convention center are
meeting with resistance from many groups and
owners. There is opposition to its..proposed
construction on the Birch Las OLas parking lot
and structures east to the ocean. A major
difficulty is that existing businesses and homes
in the area would have to be removed. Another
problem is once the center is built, who would
subsidize its running and maintenance-- the city
or the surrounding hotels that would benefitfrom
such a project?
At the beach hearing, resident Malcolm
Freedman was one of many who question the
wisdom of building a convention center in Fort
Lauderdale. especially with competition from the
existing one under renovation on Miami Beach.
Freedman laughed at planners ideas of a
convention center that would only be used for
conventioneers, saying that he doesn't know of a
convention center that only serves gatherings
and still exists financially-- it would have to serve
other purposes as well.

North Fork Group Weighs Expanding To Al
by Nathan L. Roberts


Waterfront


Here's a waterfront group that has a tiger by
the tail and will either tame it or wind up in the
tank -- the tiger's.
The group is the ten month old Fort Lauderdale
Waterfront Property Owners Association
(FLWPOA). On Tuesday, March 25, it mailed
ballots to its more than one hundred members
asking for a yea or nay vote on these proposals:
1. To drop the North Fork Chapter designation
from the Association name.
2. To expand the FLWPOA to include all
waterfront owners within the City of Fort
Lauderdale.
3. To accept members citywide.
Result of the balloting will be announced
Monday, April 28.
What has brought this about?
Sonny Irons, president, and Chuck Willard, the
group's founding father and member of its board,
agree on this ultimate aim: to achieve a re-zoning
of all waterfront properties in Fort Lauderdale
into a class or division of its own, distinct from all
others.
Irons, Frank Becker, chairman of the By-Laws
Committee, and other board association
members want to do this through the FLWPOA.
Hence their move to drop "North Fork Chapter" as
part of the group's name. They think it's
restrictive.
Willard would do things differently.
"I don't have a good gut feeling that the North
Fork Chapter of the association should be the
vehicle or agency for bringing about change," he
told Waterfront News.
"All we should do is set the example and be the
model for all other waterfront owners and their
associations. Then, when we feel the time is right,
we can call a citywide meeting of.waterfront
property owners and give everyone an
opportunity to say what they have been doing
along.the lines of what we on the North Fork of the
New River have done, namely,. improving,
beautifyingg. maingaining and upgrading our
properties in every way.
"Then, if there is a consensus of mood or feeling
or outright expression of views on the feasibility
of working together-to bring about a distinctive
rezoning of waterfront property, we can set up an
ad hoc committee made up of representatives of
all the other associations. Such a committee
would work in a unified and concerted wlay. If
such a committee asked FLWPOA leaders to be
guides in this common effort, that would be fine.
"In this way, the FLWPOA can achieve its
purpose without having to start a campaign for
members and begging people to join us.
"We can set the pace and set the stage by doing
our best to make the North Fork of the New River -
- a place I love--the best-kept, best-looking, most

attractive waterway in the city. I want the North
Fork to be the Bay Colony West of Fort
Lauderdale. And everyone will say, "if the North
Fork folks can do it, we can do it! And when all of
us are on the way to doing it, we can get together
to petition the City Commission to rezone the
waterfront."
Irons and his supporters hope the association
membership will give them the green light for an
all-out membership drive. His program is this:
1. Mount a FLWPOA drive for waterfront
members on all of the city's waterways the
Intracoastal and its wet streets, the South Fork of
the New River, and the various canals and creeks.
2. Begin work on a master plan for rezoning
waterfront properties, such a plan to include the
following, among other provisions:
a. Where and how many acres should be zoned
for multi-dwellings, a provision that would allow
for the building of condos.
b. Where and how many acres on both sides
of a waterway should be zoned for single family
dwellings, with limitations on height of
construction.
c. Where and how many acres and on which
side of a waterway should be zoned for
commercial enterprises.
d. How the various waterfront properties---
residential and commercial -- should, in a general
way, appear and be maintained, and what the
owner's responsibilities should be for keeping the
waterfront free of debris, garbage, oil slicks and
other refuse.
With completion of the master plan and its
acceptance by the members, a drive would then
be started to present it to the relevant city boards
and finally to the City Commission.
According to Irons, City Commission Bob Cox
thinks the proposals "make a lot of sense."
There are those, however, who do not agree or
have reservations or think the idea is
questionable, impractical, unwarranted, over-
ambitious, and so on.
Peter Neufeldt of Banyan Apartments and Boat
Docks on the Isle of Venice says, "It's a nice idea
but I don't think its practical. It makes sense for
single family waterfront homeowners but it
doesn't make sense to include waterfront
businesses such as Banyan Apartments or Bahia
Mar or Pier 66 or multi-family homes. There is no
common interest among such different
waterfront property owners."
Neufeldt noted that the City of Fort Lauderdale
recently granted permission for live-aboards at
Isle of Venice and Hendricks Isles because both
are zoned for and have active water-related
businesses. "Private waterfront owners generally
take a dim view of live-aboards," he declared.

"A tape may answer, please leave
your message and we will get back
to you real soon."


Hendricks Isles Civic Association, says, "The
feasibility of rezoning waterfront property into a
district or class of its own is questionable
because of the mixture of commercial and private
residential interests. I don't see how it would
work."
B.Q. Ward, a longtime North Fork waterfront
property owner and a charter.member of the
FLWPOA, says "I'm against bringing all
waterfront property owners under one roof. I
don't care for it."
Ward said he was content to deal with those
who live along the New River "in this west part of
town." He isn't interested, he states, in getting
into a group with those who live in the east, "on
the Intracoastal and the oceanfront. We all have a
difference in outlook and interests," he says.
Another who is opposed to the FLWPOA's
possible venture into expansion of its
membership is Richard Lowell, a member of the
association's board of directors. He voted
against a motion on the question and is still
against the idea. "It's not the right thing for
property owners on the North Fork to be doing,"
he says. "We're losing our perspective."
Sonny Irons remains steadfast. He notes that
15 waterfront owners from other parts of the city
have joined the FLWPOA in recent weeks and
says "that's only the beginning." He voices
confidence that the. Fort Lauderdale Waterfront
Property Owners Association "ultimately will
take in all waterfront property owners in the city."
Richard Bobbit, president of the Lauderdale
Harbour Association, appears to be a likely
member. "I think their (the FLWPOA) idea is
excellent," he told Waterfront News. "We need
one large group to represent.the many of us who
are property owners on the waterfront. Such a
group would unify us and speak with one voice
for our needs and interests. I intend to bring this
to the attention of the Lauderdale Harbours
Association." Bobbitt has been its president for
the past ten years.
Chuck Willard, while, dubious. of Iron's
program, says that despite his differences he'll
"go along with the majority."

Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo
The 21st Annual Pompano Beach Fishing
Rodeo, with $200.000 in cash, prizes and trophies,
is drawing near. Dates for the 1986 event are May
16 and 17.
In 1966 when a small group of people organized
the first Rodeo, the main purpose was to increase
business for the charter fleet, hotels and local
retailers during a slow time of the year for
tourists. That event drew 70 anglers paying an
entry fee of $30 to vie for $1.000 in cash, prizes
and trophies. For all concerned the event was a
huge success. Each succeeding year the Rodeo
grew and became more successful with a field of
over 850 anglers participating in 1984.
Today the Rodeo is run by 25 non-paid
volunteers interested not only in increasing
tourism but to put monies back into the
environment and education for the future of
sportfishing. Through donations to the Pompano
Beach Pubjic Library. International Game Fish
Association. University of Miami and the Rodeo
Reef site. an amount in access of $150,000 has
gone to preserve our'great sport. The number of
anglers this year will be 1.000 percent greater
than the first event with cash, trophies and prizes
increased by 2.000 percent. The entry fee will
show a meager increase of 333% by comparison.
The Rodeo has certainly come a long way since
that first year.
Rodeo activities kick off at Crystal Lake
Country Club on Thursday. May 15. from 6 to 9
p.m. for final registrations, review of rules,
awarding of super door prizes and viewing of.all
trophies and awards. Fishing will run Friday and
Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with weigh
ins from 4:30 until 6:00 p.m. each day. The awards
presentation will be held at the Sea Food Festival
on Sunday, May 18 at 1:00 p.m. Angler's entry fee
this year will be $110 for the sportfishing division
and $85 for the driftfishing division. All entries
received prior to May 1 are entitled to a $10
discount from their entry fee as well as be eligible
for nearly $5.000 in special prizes, Each angler
will receive an angler kit and food ticket for the
Sea Food Festival.
Top prize of $10.000 will be awarded to the first-
place angler. However. over 125 awards valued
greater than the entry fee will be presented.
Special emphasis is also placed on women.
juniors, and family participation.
The souvenir magazines for the 21st Annual
Pompano Beach Fishing are now being
distributed to marine related businesses
throughout Florida. This beautiful 96-page
publication contains interesting articles plus all
information on this fun-filled, family-oriented
tournament

Commerce


From This Dock Dania Marine Flea Market
by Capt. Bill Hard


Grab your "mad money" for it's time once more
to head for the Marine Flea Market. You can
acquire more nautical artifacts and boating
goodies here than anywhere I can think of,
including the boat and possibly an auto to pull it
with. Whatever you may need, porthole to hull, it
can most likely be found, plus you can bargain for
it and get that special buy.
Has anyone ever seen a marine flea? Aside of
something acquired in the Military, I can envision
a "marine flea" as being large, hairy, bad
dispositioned, faster than a speeding mackeral,
more powerful than the Hollywood outfall, and
able to leap 8 foot seas in a single bound. This is
definitely not something you want your cat to
drag in. This is why cats dislike water so, it's all
those "marine fleas" biting Fluffy. Possibly
someone will have a sale on "marine flea spray"
this year.
Last year I was very fortunate and purchased
Jacque Cousteau's very own red cap for only
$3.00. It was'a great bargain for such a treasured
item since the seller originally wanted $10.00.
Half an hour later the same guy was selling
another Cousteau red cap for $10.00 again. I
questioned the authenticity of my purchase and
he assured me that Mr. Cousteau had worn two
caps that day and would I be interested in an


oarlock from George Washington's personal
skiff, only $20.00. See what good stuff can be
found if you take the time to look.
I do know first hand that some local boat
manufacturers sell outdated, blemished, or
overstock of many new items from seats to hatch
covers at less than half the shop price. The same
applies to fishing tackle, rope the list is never
ending. These are great buys should you find
something needed. The supply of used and
salvaged goods will show up for both sail and
power vessels in abundance.
Just watching buyers attempting to carry or
just plain drag their purchases back to the
parking lot is a sight. Try carrying the mast and
sail from a Hobie Cat in a 15 knot wind. If that's
not enough, wait till you see it stuffed into a
compact car. Pedestal seats are great fun to fit in
your hatchback, along with the outriggers.
Somehow it all gets in place and taken away for a
new life at sea.
Should you buy Jacque Cousteau's cap, the
anchor from the Queen Mary or a new chrome-
over-brass barnacle peeler, look it over good
before dipping into your pocket, and enjoy your
latest treasure for years to come. One more thing,
bring the family wagon this time.

Deerfield Island Park To Expand Facilities


by Craig Lustgarten

One of Deerfield Beach's best, kept secrets
located.on the intercoastal waterway is Deerfield
Island Park, formerly known as Capone'lsland..
The 56-acre island is shroudefd'in state
protected mangroves and is accessible by boat
only:
SOre of the island's.park rangers, Jim Wyman
related .ftfat back in the 1970's, Arvida
corporation sought to develop the island, a
habitat for some unusual wildlife, as an extension
of the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club. The
effort was thwarted when BrowardCfountytook it
overas a park site.
Deerfield Island is a "passive park" and thus is
a haven for birds like the Blue Heron: the Egret,
and the Osprey. It is alsothe hometo three foxes,
several raccoons, armadillos, possums, rabbits,
andt non-poisonous snakes. In addition, it serves
as a roosting area for 150 vultures that travel
down each year from Hinkley, Qhio."
Jim Wyman has been a ranger on the island for
eight years. Throughout the day's activities, he is
often accompanied by the island's two mascots--
a siamese named "Fatcat" and a scruffy 13-year-
old dog who loves boat rides who was named
"Benji."
Ranger Wyman is considered to be one of the
island park's conscientious1 protectors"--
ensuring that it retains its passive beauty, while
encouraging some growth in tourist and resident
use of the picnic facilities and nature trails.
Park manager Ken Kdtelhut talked about the
expansion plans that are in the works. The Island
Park is scheduled tf'receive a pontoon boat that
. will take 25 people to and from the Island.
Ketelhut said, "We're hoping to make the boat
accessible to the handicapped, and also build a
"handicapped walkway throughout the whole
park."
Also planned arethe construction of two boat
docks, one loading.at Sullivan Park and the other
unloading at Deerfield Island.
SWhen the docks are constructed, larger groups
will be run over to the island to take advantage of
the facilities and even wedding ceremoQries,which
are. held on occasion will. becomemore feasible.
The weddings have been conducted on the
Island's boardwalk and its round pedestals.
Ranger Wyman related, "we had the first wedding
out here four years ago, and last year quite a few
people inquired about them." Wyman continued
that most of these weddings are informal affairs
that allow the couple to-spend their money on a
decent reception.
Presently, nature walktours are conducted on
the island park on the first and third Wednesdays
of each month, and Wyman has plans to add an
additional two hours on Saturdays starting at the
beginning of summer.
Though the island has a tour guide for the
nature walks, Wyman says the park rangers are
,a!l programmed to conduct them as well: "We do
it more as a labor of love than anything else out
here."
One of the most interesting structures located
on the island's western end of a 1500 foot
boardwalk, constructed in the midst of the
mangroves. It was extremely time-consuming
and difficult to complete because of the mud in
the area. The trees are constantly falling because
of the shallow root support system in the muck.
The mangroves are fascinating trees in that they
sprout air roots that drop down into the mud and
,water, sending the nutrients to the rest of the tree.


Ranger Wyman is thankful that the Island is
considered a passive park, so that its facilities
will not be overburdened. One of the reasons for
the Park's "passive status" revolves around a
creature known as the gopher tortoise, The
gopher tortoise is the island's resident land
tortoise and is considered an almost
endangered species and thus needs a protective
home..
If you would like to visit Deerfield Island Park
and meet its two mascots, call Ranger Wyman or
the others at 428-5474.

Sea Turtles Returning
In the wake of students from Purdue. New
Hampshire and Georgia Tech- loggerheads.
greens and leatherbacks are hitting the beaches
of southeastern Florida to lay their eggs.
According to a.report John Fletemeyer did for
Broward County s Environmental Quality Control
Board over 1.200 sea turtle nests with eggs were
noted in 1985 on the county's beaches.
Volunteers and professionals involved in the
area's sea turtle conservation efforts have been
meeting since early March to better coordinate
their various programs. Fletemeyer has been
awarded a S21.800 grant from the county to
conduct renesting and hatchery operations this
year. Other environmentalists from the Discovery
Center and Audibon Society will be tagging sea
turtles in the hope that the endangered creatures'
migrations can be monitored.
Adaptions that make sea turtles.at home in the
sea make them slow and vulnerable on land. Sea
turtles in some regions are known to haul out on
beaches to bask but. for the most part the only
time sea turtles leave the sea is when females
emerge to lay their eggs. Nesting usually occurs
in this area from April to September.
Molesting a sea turtle or tampering with a nest
without a permit is a misdemeanor.

Do It In The Dirt
by Marilyn Danon
On March 14, 15, & 16th Broward Soil & Water
Conservation District Personnel attended the
L.E.E.F. spring conference held in Ocala. Florida.
Environmental educators from all over the state
came together for the purpose of promoting
environmental education. A proposal to reinstate
environmental education in the Dept. of
Education's budget was discussed and will be
lobbied for during this current legislative
session. On March 20th, BSWCD held an
Environmental Workshop at Broward County's
new Nature Center, (FERN FOREST). The Soil
Conservation -Society of America and. Fern
Forest co-sponsored along with BSWCD.
Speakers included: Ronald L. Broman, president
of Broward Audubon Society and William Haynes
a member of the Environmental Leaders Council
and a marine biology teacher at Fort Lauderdale
High School. Mr. Haynes presented a talk/slide
show on the surface hydrology of Florida. BSWCD
District Coordinators, Linda Quier, and Wendy
Kievit-Burgess, Supervisor Marilyn Damon, and
District Conservationist Thaddeus Hamilton
addressed the subject of outdoorclassrooms and
how to utilize them.
BSWCD welcomes three new associate
supervisors: Erica Akerblum. Dr. George
Fitzpatrick and William Farrell. Mr. Farrell was
BSWCD's outstanding cooperator for 1985. A pilot
project using sand fencing to promote dune
building and sand retention on the beach is
scheduled to begin on Pompano Beach sometime
this month. BSWCD is constantly looking for
better ways to improve beach restoration and
revegetation. We are going to introduce you to a
new plant each month. This months plant is the
most important coastal plant used in beach
revegetation projects.
.SEA OATS ,UNIOLA PANICULATA) ......... ..
The leaves of sea oats are narrow and pale
green. When the seed heads mature they are
compressed spikelets borne at the end of stiff
- stems 3 feet long or more. Individual seeds
resemble those of common oats. This species has
a tough and extensive root system which is able
to ramify throughout a dune. Their thousands of
tiny rootlets help hold shifting grains together
and soon an unstable dune becomes stable, its
seaward and landward surfaces covered with
tough sand-binding plants. Florida state law
prohibits picking sea oats. Their importance is
recognized and protected. Sea oats are pioneer
plants on our coastal beaches. For
homeowners/condo owners.and others who are
interested in-planting sea oats. plants are
available from BSWCD for a nominal fee. Phone
584-1306.
BSWCD will be featured in an up-coming issue
of BIO-CYCLE magazine, for our pioneering use of
compost to establish coastal plants. We believe
this is the first time compost has been'used on
beaches to establish revegetation plantings.
Compost is widely used as a potting medium and
for landscaping purposes. Compost is available
from Broward Soil and Water Conservation
District.
I'd like to end this month's column with a quote
from John Simonds. a member of Governor
Graham's Task Force on Resource Management.
"..... That sun-drenched, shimmering, glorious
expanse of land and water that is Florida.... Our
job is to protect it, to use it wisely, and enjoy it. to
ensure that those of the generations to follow
may be as blessed as we.".....
For information on sea oats, compost, and/or
assistance. Contact BSWCD at 584-1306.

Beach Shore Shine Planned -April


by Craig Lustgarten
As Part of Fort Lauderdale's 75th birthday
celebration and "Make It Shine" campaign, a
"Beach Shore Shine" cleanup project will be held
on Saturday April 19.
The project is being co-ordinated by Sheila
Harrigan of Second Century Broward -- a group of
sons and daughters of original residents of
Broward County.
Project organizers are hoping for 1500
volunteers for the cleanup, and Beach
Environment Association member and co-
ordinator Diane Boutin added. "We're asking for
volunteers outside of Beach residents because all

those talented art students who painted "The
Wall" will also be solicited for their help.
The target area of the cleanup will take place
from the Beach to the Intracoastal. from the
Sheraton Yankee Clipper to just before the Mark
2100 Hotel.
Volunteers will start from the different
lifeguard stations. They will be given a T-shirt
and assigned an area. then make their way to the
intracoastal while picking up trash, sweeping
streets, painting buildings, and sprucing up the
city.
The Beach Environment Association will meet
on April 16 to assign different groups a specific
area.
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Boardsailing
Association will be painting walls and doing
landscaping in the vicinity of the South Beach
park lot and beach ramp access. Pink and aqua is
the color scheme, according to Clint Murphy, who
is coordinating this aspect of the Shore Shine
project. Potential volunteers who want to help the
boardsailors can call Clint at 525-5530.

beach signs and poles will be removed and/or
straightened, graffiti will be removed from poles
at A1A and Las Olas. and from the Bahia Mar
overpass. Debris will be removed from clusters of
sea oats along North Beach.

Young People Learn To Sail At
Seaport
Sby Lisa Brownell
MYSTIC, CT-- This summer, hundreds of young
people will be packing up their duffle bags and
going down to the sea again at Mystic Seaport.
The Mariner Training Program at Connecticut's
famous maritime museum offers teenagers an
opportunity to learn to sail while living aboard a
historic, 104-year-old square-rigged ship at the
museum. Older teens can cast away the
landlubber's life and cruise New England's waters
on a classic schooner.
The Joseph Conrad program, for 12 to 17-year-
6lds, is offered *on both a beginner -and
intermediate level for six or 10-day sessions.
Participants live aboard the ship Joseph Conrad,
which is permanently berthed and equipped with
dormitory quarters belowdecks. During the day,
they learn the basics of sail on the Mystic River at
the helm of one of the Seaport's fleet of 30 Dyer
Dhow dinghies, a 9-foot sailing craft.
Other instruction includes seamanship,
rowing, navigation arnd the arts of the sailor.
Tours and evening programs are included to give
the mariners a feeling of shipboard and seaport
life past and present.
: The Conrad once served as a training vessel in
the Danish merchant service under the name
Georg Staget-The iron-hulled ship is 110 feet long
and a veteran of nearly seven decades at sea.
Extensively refurbished by the museum's
Preservation Shipyard in 1984-85, the Conrad can
accommodate 54 mariners. Comfortable quarters
and a fire detection. and sprinkler system
combine to make the Conradone of the safest and
most unique floating dormitories in the wrcld.
On a typicaKday; mariners rise at 6:30 a.m. with
reveille and breakfast. After clean-up, they spent
the rest of the morning tackling the. wind and
current on the river while instructors assist in
powered safety launches. After lunch and some
free time, there is more instruction in the
afternoon. Evenings may include a sing-along, a
show at the planetarium, or training aloft in the
rigging of the Conrad, the "high point" of a stay at
the Seaport. A field trip and picnic to an Atlantic
Ocean beach is also included. Meals are-served as
the Seamen's Inn restaurant adjacent to the
museum grounds and at the Galley on the
grounds. The program is open to both groups and
individuals.

For those 15 to 20 years old, the Seaport's 62-

challenge and fun on New England waters. The
sea-going course teaches its young crew
members the value of teamwork as well as the,
practical application of safety, seamanship and -
navigation.,
Those who sign aboard will find themselves
responsible for all of the ship's work including

clean-up, the schooner weighs anchor for the
next port of call. Those on watch are expected to
keep lookout, steer and keep a ship's log while the
offwatch practice their piloting skills or simply
relax. A typical cruise from Mystic may go as far
as Martha's Vineyard from Long Island Sound.
Evenings are usually spent aboard, but
mariners frequently go ashore to explore coastal
towns such as Newport, RI. In 1986, there will be a

SLive-Aboard Artist Exhibits Her Paintings


by Jennifer B. Heit







r-A


When you're an ambitious artist, you strive to
turn lofty dreams into reality.
"Painting -- like sailing -; takes courage," says
29-year old Irish-born artist Michele Souter. "A
tremendous amount of energy is needed to do
both jobs."
And Michele is getting both done aboard an 84-
foot yacht where she lives and works on the New
River. You can't miss the yacht that's docked on
New River Drive, for a huge green, white and
orange Irish flag proudly flies outside.
Souter's latest creations -- several
Impressionist landscapes reminiscent of the lush
pastures of her home-land -- are currently on
display in the Carone Gallery in Fort Lauderdale,
the artist's first gallery presentation since
coming to America.
"Normally, we deal only with artists who are
internationally known," said Jodie Carone, part
owner of the gallery with husband Matt. "But we
felt Michele's work showed a special charm and
style, and on that basis we decided to show the
paintings in our gallery."
For Michele, acceptance in a major gallery is
"fantastic, wonderful. Its exposure to the public,
which of course is important if you want to sell
your work. And just having my paintings hanging
next to the big names in the art world is a buzz in
itself."
During the past 3 years, Souter's work has
appeared in various competitive shows in Fort
Lauderdale and North Miami. In September 1985,
she returned to Ireland for her first exhibition in
her native country. Entitled 'Sea Scapes," the
exhibition displayed 20 paintings, the result of an

-A,.aas saS88888888a.


8-year sailing adventure.
,Michele's travels have taken her to Europe
North and South Africa, South America, the
Caribbean, and "When I was 17 1 went to Greece
and after a year of living in a quiet fishing village,
my introduction to sailing came about. 1 got a job
as a deck hand on a charter boat going to Venice,
and one boat led to another. Its that way with
sailing. In fact, its harder to get out of it than into
it."
Now Michele is busy painting scenes of peat
bogs, misty moors and landscapes, a tribute to
her Irish roots. The last few years she has spent in
Fort Lauderdale have also left an impression that
she plans to express in a serious of paintings of
the Everglades. "I feel a pull toward the
Everglades. There's something beautiful there in
the way that the sky looks and the play of light."
What feeds Michele's inspiration? "It helps to
surround yourself with positive people, but most
of all, you just go out and do it!"

Diving


Turtle Talk

by Byran Brooks

Bob and Jeanne Wereshoven a couple of divers
who run the Sea Turtle Committee for the
Broward County Audubon Society. will be
starting a sport divers In Water Turtle Survey:
The reason is that in the past several years the
Wereshoven's have seen countless sub-adult
Green Turtles in Fort Lauderdale off the first reef.
This had mystified them because the great
majority of turtles that come ashore each
summer to nest are Loggerhead Turtles. The in
water survey might help them identify how many
there are and what times of the year they're here.
An undersea turtle slate is in the works for
divers to be able to take exact information as to
size. type. when and where the.turtle.was seen.
This information would be sent to the
Wereshoven's through the Sea Turtle Committee:
Data that Bob and Jeanne have gathered tells
us that Florida is the second leading area in the
world for Loggerhead Turtle nesting sites. The
only larger turtle nesting area is on the island of
Masirah. Oman in the Middle East. Last year for
instance in the small area of beach that Bob and
Jeanne covered off-Hillsboro. they documented
over five hundred Loggerhead nesting 'sites.
The Wereshoven's in water survey .if done
properly by enough divers would begin to tell the
experts where the turtles are. how many of them
there are in our area and what size they are when
they are here.
Bob and' Jeanne see many sub-adult Green.
Turtles off reef tracks especially on the shallow
first reef where much algae occurs. They say
since there is so much that scientists don't know
about turtles. having sport divers interested and
recording data will help.
The Wereshoven's also assist in day and night
time tagging done on nesting mother turtles
during the summer nesting season. If any diver is
interested please call them at 764-4652. Area
Code 305.
The turtle work for divers will be strictly sight
and document. It is against federal law to


molest any sea turtle, so the turtle slate at hand in
the water would help divers gather important
data.
After certification often time there is a let down.
You have gone through so much to get certified,
spent money on purchasing the gear and then
sometimes you wonder how to use it around here
and make each dive interesting.
We can't afford trips to the Caymans all the
time. so what does that leave? I love her dearly.
but you can only dive the Mercedes only so many
times. Everyone can't afford an expensive
camera, lenses and strobe. Most of the good food
fish have been show away for the ardent hunter.
so the question is what to do here and keep it


. interesting.
Answer, turtles. They come here by the
thousands each year to nest on our rapidly
getting too crowded beaches. Other types of
turtles like Green Turtles are off shore that don't
nest. Where do they go? What other types of
turtles are here close to our shore? It's fun as a
diver to have a sense of purpose. Here's your
chance as a diver to help out in a very important
way. Most of the turtles deaths in our county are
caused by-you guessed it, boats. They are air
breathers just like the manatee we seem destined
to wipe out. The more divers that are out there
looking for them. the better chance they have of
survival.
Your help as a sport diver is needed. The data
will be fed to a computer based on Virginia Key
and run by the National Marine Fisheries.
If you are interested call Bob and Jeanne
Wereshoven. Again the number is 305-764-4652.

Safety


.19 QVolume 3 Issue 2 April 15 May 1-5. 1986 Waterfront News .


Pan Pan! Overboard!
by Bill Lange

Should that be "man overboard", "woman
overboard" or "child overboard" and in each case
,why isn't it "MAYDAY" because so often it is
almost fatal?
In many cases the overboard situation could
have been prevented. Are you doing what is
necessary to prevent this ever present danger,
and are you ready to take instant action? Eternal
vigilance is the price of safety at sea.
These points apply to whatevertype vessel you
handle: whether 15th Street Navy ramp-launched,
or any marina-launched, or marina-docked
yacht, ski type, or sloop/ketch/yawl/schooner,
or trawler/ocean racer speed boat. Yes, even to
that whaler-dinghy or to the dock-stander (often
able to prevent a mishap).
The overboard situation need not be disastrous
if the boat is well equipped and the crew
experienced or at least trained. A person
overboard is due to improper and negligent
seamanship (except for the Spring Break dopes
who break the safety measures), whether it is
from a 12 foot bass boat or an offshore passage
cruiser.
So, skipper, don't think it cannot happen to
you. It can. It is sudden, unexpected and life-
threatening. When it occurs there are more things
that you have to do, and all at the same instant,
than in any other emergency.
Every boat underway must meet the Federal
requirement of having a Class IV personal
flotation device (PFD) "immediately available"
(instantly at hand) since this is the ring, or
horseshoe, or square designed to be thrown to a
person in the water. Less than sixteen foot boats
could use a Class I, II, or III, but did you ever try to
throw one of those? The Class.IV toss has to be
properly.done (better practice) and right now, or
the distressed person has no chance.
In-the flash of time when somebody goes-
overboard you have to be sure you or a'
designated person on board watches, without
being distracted for any reason, the place of entry
into the water. The thrown Class IV may help to
maik the spot, subject to wind and current. You
have to return to that spot, if no body surfaced an
underwater search may become appropriate, yet
churning propellers must be kept clear.
Reckless boating. is the code under which you
may paya considerable fine if you allow.people to
ride on your bow or to sit astride railings or
gunwhale. Or if you execute high speed turns.
Overboard is a likely result and very frequently
the damage is irrepairable as your propeller
chops the body. Only luck will avoid the propeller
contact since, no action you could take would
change the course of your boat orthe speed of the
propeller.in time. As skipper you are responsible
for the conduct of your passengers/crew and for
the damages done by your vessel and its 'wake.


Boating Course Starts April
21
by A.R. Letwin

BOATING SKILLS will be taught by the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary in a 10-lesson, five-week

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 confidence.
You and members of your family can sign up
for this course in advance by stopping in at
Flotilla 3-2's base onSaturday morning between

Health Watch Water Rescue
by Donna Hessman, R.N.

Injuries can occur on in or near the water.
People think of drowning or near drowning as the
only type of water related accidents that can
occur. But boating skiing and diving mishaps can
produce fractured bones, bleeding, muscle
damage and many other injuries along with the
dreaded possibility of drowning.
The most important thing to remember is never
attempt a water rescue unless you are an
excellent swimmer trained in water rescue and
safety.The problems faced in water rescue are too
great for the average, untrained swimmer to
attempt. If the thought bothers you that you
would have to stand by and not be able to help,
take course in water rescue and safety offered by
the Red Cross, YMCA or the United States Coast
Guard. Otherwise you could become the victim
instead of the rescuer.
If someone needs help and is close to shore or
poolside, hold out an object to him to grab and
pull him from the water. A rope if the best thing to
use. If this is not available use an oar, fishing pole
or branch. Keep in mind that a towel or article of
clothing can be useds to pull the victim in if he is


Under many conditions you should
immediately at the time of overboard give a major
alarm. First of all the loud cry "Person
overboard", repeated to be heard by all, and
usually state whether port or starboard. This
allows all hands to act as lookouts or take up
deck functions in order to carry out retrieval. If
other vessels might assist give the 5 or more
danger alarm on your loudest horn/whistle. In
many cases you'll need considerable help in
locating or picking up the person in the water.
Your alarm in most cases should be given on VHF
Channel 16 (repeated) "HELLO ALL STATIONS,
PAN PAN", "PERSON OVERBOARD", then give your
vessel name and location. The alarm on VHF (and
SSB).often will start action by other vessels and
by USCG.
If the person in the water is not visible it is vital
to mark the datum (the probable position of the
distress incident) by floating object, thetime, and
to report the Latitude and Longitude, since
searchers will start from there including attention
to currents, winds, etc. Minutes count in getting
the search and rescue on scene. USCG aircraft
may arrive rapidly off southeastern Florida and
you may be asked to give a long count onVHF to
assist their RDF trace to your location. Any PAN
PAN in our area will get a lot more help than you
will hear or at first realize. Nearby, the 15th Street
navy or commercial towboats may start your
.way. Further off, commercial cruise or cargo
vessels, ocean passage pleasure boats, or even
the U.S. Navy may be on scene soon. All will
remain silent unless communication is vital.
USCG may impose SEELONCE (silence) if the.
distress vessel is weak.


too far away to be pulled, then throw him an
object that will float. A life preserver or life jacket
is ideal. Ifthese objects are not at hand, throw
anything that will float and do it immediately
board, logs, foam cushions, plastic jugs, foam
cushions, plastic jugs, surfboard, large balls, or
large plastic toys could be used. Once the victim
has a floating object to hold on to, try to tow him
ashore. Always make sure your own position is
safe and secure. If you must row to the victim,
you should be an excellent swimmer with rescue
training and should be wearing a flotation device.
When the injured person is taken out of the
water and is unconscious assume he has neck
and spinal injuries until proven otherwise. If the
victim has no heart beat or no respiratior, begin
C.P.R. (cardial pulmonary resusitatinri.lf heart
beat and breathing are established, next check
for and stop all bleeding. Examine the victim for
any other injuries that might need first aid. Cover
the victim to conserve body heat and make sure
medical help hasbeen summoned. Remember in
water rescue, pull the injured from the water. If
this cannot be done, throw objects that will float
and try to tow the person from the water.
Call the YMCA, American Red Cross or the
United States Coast Guard and enroll in a water
rescue and safety course today.


A special condition of overboard which is'
unfortunately increasingly frequent in our waters;ii
is.a diver difficulty. Again this is skipper fault.
Some dive boats have-no VHF, some have no
radio at all. Some have all persons in the water, or
maybe an unqualified person on the boat There
have been several narrow squeaks due to such
gross negligence. Most treat diving .as though
there are few and simpleihazards.l urge you to
adopt and enforce all the proceduresused by Sam
Rich of Adventure Divers..
There are several aspects -of offshore
overboard situations which are vital to know, in
order.that any skipper may be qualified as having
done the utmost to protect crew lives. These will
be mentioned in the next issue of Waterfront:
News. They will help you prepare for the
overboard emergency, to preplan according to
your own boat and then to rehearse often enough
to be sure that all hands aboard are
knowledgeable.
