I would like to bring to your attention the fact
that I was misquoted in Nathan Roberts' article,
North Fork Group Weighs Expanding To All
Waterfront, in your April 15 May 15 issue of the
Mr. Roberts stated that I had devised a multi-
part plan for a membership campaign to increase
our numbers. I have never encouraged this
method to acquire more members. To
substantiate this please refer to the FLWPOA
March general meeting minutes as published in
our April newsletter. Here I clearly stated that we
would NOT campaign to increase our numbers.
We would rather continue making progress on the
waterfront, accomplishing our goals, and those
waterfront property owners who are interested in
our association would continue to join.
I appreciate your interest in writing about the
Sonny Irons, president
Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Property Owners'
Reply by Nathan L. Roberts:
Sonny Irons is mistaken. Not only did I not
misquote him, I did not quote at all. I devoted nine
paragraphs to his views in a lengthy story having
to do with the possibility that the Fort Lauderdale
Waterfront Property Owners Association
(FLWPOA) might expand its boundaries beyond
the North Fork of the New River to take in
property owners on all of the city's waterfronts.
Of the nine paragraphs concerning his particular
views on this matter, five of them dealt with a re-
zoning of Fort Lauderdale waterfront property
into a district of its own and one paragraph dealt
with a city-wide drive for waterfront members to
give force to the rezoning plan. What I did was to
summarize Iron's discourse. Had I quoted him
word for word, I would have had to write twice the
length of story Waterfront News devoted to.the.
Just the same; I thinkil did justice to his views. I
now find it disingenuous that he disavows any
effort to go city-wide. He refers Waterfront News
to the minutes of the association's March 24
general membership meeting in which heclaims
he is recorded as opposed to a membership drive.
Those minutes record him as stating that "They.

Editor's Note: Members of the Fort Lauderdale
Waterfront Property Owners Association, North
Fork Chapter have voted sixty-three to five in
favor of: dropping the "North Fork Chapter"
designation from the Association name,
expanding the Association to include all
waterfront owners within the City of Fort
Lauderdale, and accepting members city wide.
The results of the balloting were announced at
the group's monthly meeting, April 28, 1986.
Eighty-six ballots were mailed to dues paying
property-owning members. Seventy-nine percent
of the membership voted in the' Lauderdale
association referendum and returned their
ballots. Forty-six additional members, those who
hadn't paid their dues as of April 1st or who didn't
own waterfront property along the North Fork of
the New River, were not allowed to vote on the
issue. A "North Fork" committee has been formed
to deal with issues particular to that area, in
-anticipation of members from other waterfront
neighborhoods joining the association. By laws
changes are being drafted by a committee to
accommodate condo groups and corporations as
immediately form a permanent North Fork
committee to represent the needs of the North
Fork." He is quoted further as stating that "we
have received requests for membership from
Shady Banks, Idlewyld, Coral Ridge and other
areas of the city," and so on. And in the next
paragraph of the minutes there appears what
seems almost'like a non-sequitor. "We Will not be
campaigning for large numbers of members. We
will continue to accomplish our goals and those
interested will join."
In the first place, that last statement by Irons is
nothing more than a reminder to members of
FLWPOA's present policy pending its possible
revision in the ballot/referendum:that ends April
28. It isnot Iron's own position as stated and
explained by him when 1 queriedihim right after
his March 17 board meeting.. Not only that, the
policy irons Calledtothe attention of his members,

membership approved going city wide, a

Instead, he launched, into a lengthy and

would ultimately embrace the entire city
I would like to comment briefly on the proposed
laws governing boats and yachts transversing
the Intracoastal Waterway (I.C.W.), New River
and the various canals.
There are some and only some segments of the
I.C.W. which I think should be regulated. Whether
it be an enforcible "No Wake" law of 25 m.p.h.
when in the confines of the area from seventeenth
Street Causeway bridge to the inlet to the New
River, I have, seen many times, smaller boats
(sometimes with many people aboard) nearly
capsized by the wakes of extremely fast craft,
seemingly purposely nearly along side them as
they "slice by" at speeds in excess of 45-50 m.p.h.
Such conduct on sheltered waters should be
punishablewith heavy fines or loss of license or
I hardly feel that operator's licenses are
necessary at this time, except perhaps for those
who would be operating vessels of fifteen tons or.
more, or of boats of fifty feet or more.
I would have it mandatory for anyone applying
for a reg i station for his boat, however small, to
submit to and pass a quiz: (A) as to "rules of the
...... road", (B) whistle, signals, (C). rights, of way, .(D)
emergency signals, (E) required Coast Guard
equipment, and (F) several knots (square, clove
hitch, bowline, two half hitches, fastening to a
cleat)..The above could be completed in less than
ten minutes, providing the applicant had previous
experience and spent a few hours of meaningful
study before applying for the registration of his
craft. This solution is simple, quick and effective.

As a visitor to the United States I have followed
the articles and letters about the problems of
"Spring Break" and the debate about any possible
future development of Fort Lauderdale with a lot
of interest. As a representative of the "family"
type of holidaymaker, I feel that the proximity of
traffic and parked cars spoil the natural outdoor
quality of the beach.
This year's "Spring Break" experiment with the
traffic lanes merely concentrated the traffic and
solved nothing but it did prove that it is possible
to channel the cars down Birch Road. Why not
then solve both the aesthetic and traffic problems
by blocking off A1A between Las Olas and say,
Seville Road to make a pedestrian precinct. This
could be achieved quite cheaply by simply raising
the level of the road to pavement (sidewalk?)
height and decorating with seating and plant.
This leisure setting would be suitable for all age

Speed-Limit, Helmsman License Bills Get Mixed Reception
By Nathan L. Roberts
Two bills now before the State Legislature that
would, respectively, set a statewide speed limit
on navigable waters and require boat operators
to be licensed in the same way automobile drivers
are licensed are getting a mixed reception from
Broward's public, civic and boat industry
officials. (see page two, April 15-May 15, 1986,
While the principle of a speed limit for boats is
being well -received, there are differences on
what that speed limit should be..
The proposal to license persons who take the
wheel or tiller of a boat is being received coldly,
to say the least.
One Broward official, Sheriff Nick Navarro,
whose office mounts a marine patrol on waters
not patrolled by the cities, holds that the speed-
limit bill is "well-intentioned but needs more
homework." His views were made known to
Waterfront News by former Fort Lauderdale
police chief Leo Callahan, who is now a member
of the Sheriff's office with the rank of
commander. Callahan said that the Sheriff views
the licensing bill in somewhat the same as the
speed limit bill, namely that it deserves more
"Maybe one way might be to require a boat
owner to complete a Coast Guard Auxiliary or
Power Squadron course to qualify for a
Certificate of Proficiency," Callahan said. "The
certificate could then be issued along with the
'captain's license' to each new boat owner."
The same type of examination given to car
drivers might be given to boat drivers, Callahan
suggested, "as a way of instilling some
knowledge of .the rules to be observed on the
water. It all needs a lot more study."
One major aspect is that both bills lack any
provision for funding, Callahan observed. "Bills
of this kind that call for enforcement are
incomplete if they do not provide for funding the
agencies that become responsible for carrying
them out," he declared.
Van Snider, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida, made
known that the MIA has taken a strong stand on
the funding of water-related law enforcement
agencies. The association, he disclosed "believes
that safety on the waters of the State of Florida
can be improved by increasing funding for the
Florida Marine Patrol and other waterborne
agencies to enhance staffing and equipment
requirements. This, in turn,will improve visibility
and inevitably lead to improved enforcement of
current marine regulations and laws."
At the same time, Snider, disclosed that the
association's 457 member are opposed to the bill
calling for the licensing of boat operators.
The MIA's position is expressed in a formal
statement which declares that "licensing will do
nothing to combat he major causes of boating
accidents...alochot/drug use, inattention,
carelessness,a4lack of common sense and poor
Moreover, the association's stand is that "it is
impossible to develop a fair and effective testing-
licensing program that will identify those persons
who qualify as safe, knowledgeable boat
operators. Boat types vary as well as boating
The MIA also regards it as "unfair to consider
licensing boat operators who are residents of our
state and not require tourists to do so. Florida is
heavily dependent on recreation and tourism.
This would discourage out-of-state visitors from
taking their boating holidays here should they be
involved with licensing."
"Licensing," the MIA states, "would impose a
costly, inconvenient and unfair burden on
boaters, with no apparent benefit."
With respect to the bill on establishing a speed
limit, the MIA's position is favorable, except thar
it wants "the 25 m.p.h. speed limit proposed by
Sen. McPherson raised to 30 m.p.h. as
recommended by the Florida Marine Patrol" and
that the bill also include these other features: "an
18-month sunset provision" at which time its
results can be evaluated; that the bill contain
restrictions on wake and wash since these are
"significant factors" affecting safety on the water
and that signs stating the speed limit "should
include cautionary wash statements", and that
any speed limit regulation should pertain "only to
the Intracoastal Waterway" and "provide

The MIA in this instance calls also for
"adequate funding to provide staff and equipment
to waterborne law enforcement agencies to
effectively enforce currently established laws."
"Enacting laws without providing the funds to
enforce them," Van Snider declared, "is
Broward County Commissioner Howard
Forman, who has kept abreast of the speed limit
issue forthe past two years, is for a35 m.p.h. limit
but is flexible on the matter. He said that if the
McPherson bill does not pass, "I will approach the
state to work out some way of joint supervision of
the Waterway respecting speed and, of course,
work it out to include the coastal cities in the
Forman said he is taking a "wait-see attitude"
on boat operator licensing.
Jim Sullivan, a navigator who teaches a class
at Broward Community College to prepare boat
owners for the so-called "captains license," is for
a 25 knot (m.p.h.) speed limit. However, he
pointed out, "setting a speed limit doesn't assure
safe boating. There are conditions on the water in
which a boat traveling at the legal speed may be a
hazard to others during such instances as heavy
weather or fog. A good rule to follow is
reasonable speed for the condition existing." -
Sullivan ridiculed as "foolish" the proposal to
license boat operators. "Can a youth piloting a
small sailboat in a cove be required to carry a
license for that?"Sullivan asked, rhetorically.
"Licensing anyone who might steer a boat is
just another way of creating bureaucracy in
Tallahassee" he declared. "I'd want to know
who's going to run the program, whether he's
been out on the water, and how many times."
"More important than issuing licenses, "he
continued, "is to require boaters to observe Rule
5, which calls for a lookout at all times.
"Failure to post a lookout and overloading are
the biggest causes of boat accidents. A license
with all its requirements, is no guarantee or
safeguard against accident." "
Lieut. Larry Armstrong of the Sheriff's Marine
Patrol voiced an opinion similar to Sullivan's.
"Even if a boat is moving at legal speed under
adverse conditions," he said, "it may be violating
the careless operation's statute."
Sgt. Kroger of Fort Lauderdale's Harbor Police
said that licensing of boat operators "might have
to come eventually because of the increase in the
number of boats." Fort Lauderdale has a30 m.p.h.
speed limit on waters within its boundaries.
Irwin Siegel, Commander of the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary Flottilla 3-2, withheld comment
on the speed limit and boat operator licensing
issues in accordance with regulations which do
not permit personnel to discuss them while a
legislative body has them under consideration.
However, he underscored the role of the Coast
Guard Auxiliary is fostering safe boating skills
and seamanship. The Auxiliary conducts day and
evening classes without charge througho-ut the
year, with only a nominal charge for necessary
books and materials. Its public education
program is an addition to its search and rescue
operations and its examinations of boats and
equipment to assure conformity to safety
regulations. The Auxiliary has no law
enforcement responsibilities save those in no-
wake and manatee zones. Boaters wishing more
information on the Coast Guard Auxiliary's public
education courses and classes may call Irwin
Siegel at 776-1252.

Lauderdale Lifts Beach Parking Ban
by Craig Lustgarten
Having witnessed the positive cosmetic effect
of the temporary ban that was'put on parking
along South Beach, members of the Beach
Environment Association and other concerned
citizens are working with the city commission to
make it perm nent.
The ban on metered parking along "the strip"
was lifted after Spring break. City commissioners
lifted the ban as a consequence of a potential loss
of revenue of about $300,000 a year which those
meters bring. A review of that decision is
expected in September.
City commissioner John Rodstrom explained
the factors involved in the parking issue. "As part
of the "bond covenants" that were sold for the
project, if any parking meter is removed another
must be put in its place somewhere else," said
Rodstrom. "If you move the meters from South
Beach to North Beach, for example, that will force
residents to park on side streets looking for free
Rodstrom added that if parking was removed
along South Beach, you would need to have
somewhere else to park in the area, and there is
only one other parking lot at present.
The city does, however, own property near the
Sheraton Yankee Clipper and the city
commissioner would like to see it sold, with the
money going towards buying property a couple
of streets back of A1A which could be used for a
Members of the Beach Environment
Association are concerned with the impact of "on
again off again" parking. Beach Environment
Association member Bernie Petreccia declared
that such parking "discourages older people from
strolling the beach," resulting in a loss of money
for beach merchants. Petreccia related that
during the off-season families that come down for
vacation won't spend their money if they can't
walk the beach and move across the street into
the shops. The sfteets are extremely diarrow on
the west side of A1A.
Diane Boutin, a hotel owner also opposed to
Beach parking reports that every Sunday
morning last summer, kids that would park on the
beach across from her hotel would hang out and
blast their stereos. "Those aren't the kind of
people who bring business to the beach," Boutin
"It's a question for having having a good mix of.
kids and older people-without the beach parking
you do get that mix because it permits strolling
and bicycling," Petreccia emphasized.
The most visible effect of a parking ban is that
it affords the tourist and residents an
unobstructed view of the beach and thus brings

out its natural beauty. A proposed boardwalk
along the entire area would serve to enhance the
total landscape (seascape).
City commissioner Rodstrom'adds that if
parking along "the strip" is eliminated, a tram
service should be employed. Using that particular
mode of transportation would involve upgrading
the existing Voyager trams and implementing a
regular route system.
Rodstrom commented, "I would like to see a
tram service that would get people to any part of
the beach they would like to go."

Written Rules And
Common Sense Afloat
by Capt. Ron Wahl
Rights Of Way Under Bridges
Do the Rules of the Road offer a special right of
way when going under a bridge in waters affected
by tidal currents?
The Rules address the problem of extremely
swift current flow only on the Mississippi and
certain other rivers on the Great Lakes, by giving
the right of way over all other craft to downward
bound power-driven vessels. They do not directly
cover the handicaps encountered by a vessel
under the influence of tidal current in other areas.
Thus, The General Prudential Rule and the Rule
of Good Seamanship apply. Under the Prudential
Rule, it is incumbent on every boat operator to
maneuver safely in order to avoid a collision or
accident. The Rule of Good Seamanship requires
the operator to do the polite and proper thing by
allowing other vessels to proceed safely under
It is not a case of the fastest boat going under
first, but of every maneuver being made as safely
as possible. A power boat blasting pasta sailboat
under the bridge places that sailboat skipper in
jeopardy of losing control, and crashing against
the overhead of the bridge. The power boat
operator has broken both rules. Every boat
operator must avoid a collision at all costs, while
carrying out polite and proper acts of good

Hello All Stations Pan Pan Man Overboard
by Bill Lange
The initial OVERBOARD alarm last month in the
Waterfront News forms a part of the explanation
which follows. As you preplan how to handle
such an emergency the various aspects will have
to be adopted to your vessel. Then train your crew
and passengers and keep your standards of
Equipment: persons on board must be provided
with the flotation and markings to improve their
endurance until rescued. All persons coming on
deck in rough weather or at night must wear a life
jacket. This should have the qualities of the USCG
approved Type I PFD (uncomfortable but
seaworthy even for unconscious person). I do not
know the reliability of integrated protection
suits/life saving rain gear. This also applies to
certain gadgets such as manoverboard distress
balloon. Pockets should hold available a whistle,
penlight strobe, a knife, six red flares, orange dye
and smoke, and a mirror. The life jacket in bright
On deck procedures: Those "who go before the
mast" must understand that safety harness is not
"sissy gear". A typical 38 foot sloop might need
four such harnesses. Safety harness should be
mandatory on.deck at night or in rough weather.
Even on a calm night no one should go forward
from the cockpit unless wearing harness with
double snaps. Brightly colored fore and aft
jacklines should allow snapped-on movement. If
there is a single helmsperson the complete
lifejacket and harness is mandatory. Crew must
be especially alert for the number on deck; too
often a missing person is not noticed
Marking the overboard site: In many cases
finding the overboard person is very
problematical. Marking and recording the spotof
entry into the water is vital. Write down the
latitude and longitude and be sure there is no
error in your figures or in the later reporting of
them. Objects thrown in the water also show the
possible drift. If the person is capable of reaching
or holding on rescue chances are better.
Habitually ocean cruisers have an eight foot
fiberglass float pole which isso mounted near the
stern that it can be instantly jettisoned in an
emergency. There is an orange flag at thetop and
some sort of strobe flasher which automatically
activates in the water. A horseshoe Class IV
personal flotation device is attached by a long
All skippers of the Waterfront News area,
whether motor cruisers of Gulf Stream streakers,
should adapt this overboard device to their

the latitude and longitude since the USCG
often will send aircraft to the location. Also other
vessels may start moving to the spot even though
they do not clutter up Channel 16 by transmitting.
RDF may have to be used to find you quickly, so
know how to provide a long count.
Getting back to the site: Under overboard
emergency conditions and state of mind a skipper
(or the deck officer) must do the right things.
Frequent drills (often by surprise) should be held.
This applies to each facet of the search and
Certain vessels use the "destroyer" turn, also
know as "Williamson" turn. On the alarm of
overboard the vessel is turned toward the side of
splash down until a new heading of 60 degrees
from the course. Then rudder is put hard over in
the opposite direction and held until the vessel is
once again on the recpriocal of its course. This is
the original track where the entry into water
occurred, to be adjusted if current set or drift.
Beware overrunning the body.
Provide additional flotation assistance, NOW:

the moment of rescue. A critical job is bungled. or

Securing lines might be used. If thefreeboard is
high it is a major handicap. A swim platform, ora
towable rescue mat, or raft may help. Hoisting
lines may be arranged including using the main
halyard, or the boom tackle..
Medical treatment: Even in the water of the Gulf
Stream which we consider warm a body can
suffer hypothermia and will become exhausted.
You must study these first aid aspects.
SStandard operating procedures: These are up
to you skipper. Get them right and apply them.

tow a line for an overboard person to grab. 100
feet of polypropelene, knoted every 3 feet, with a
bowline at the end is towed. I not there is now
even a commercial brand such rescue sling.
Knowing how to receive USCG assistance, such
as helicopter-lowered items, should be
understood. More on that later.
I strongly urge that you read tvo books which
really provide the detailed overboard aspects and
are also most pleasant factual stories. They are:

by Craig Lustgarten
Since its inception in 1983, the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Boardsailing Association has grown
to 150 members.
Peter McNaughton, one of the Boardsailing
club's founders and its publicity chairman says
30th Annual Miami: To Key Largo
by Capt. Frank Papy
The Key Largo race, sponsored by the Miami
Yacht Club,is a much more serious racing event
than the Columbus Day Regatta. This year they
really had some fine wind for it.
To give you an idea, one of the hundred and
twenty-five multi-hull sailboats entered in the race,
an R.C. 27' did the forty-five mile course in about
two and one half hours; that's really cooking' inmy
book, about seventeen knots; maybe that's why
it's a more serious race than Columbus Day. You
don't have much time for partying and throwing
water balloons at that speed.
Now, for the mono-hulls, there were one
hundred and fifteen of those entered. The
highlight of the mono' classes was the thirty-five
foot and over cruising boats which was won by
Jeff Pepper in a radical Kiwi 35' or 33' (?) racing
design. Not to sell Mr. Pepper short on his
spectacular win, but coming in sixth in the same
class as a couple of dozen boats was Robert
Gregg in -what we call in the charter trade a 1972
Morgan "out house" 41', the raik, a liveaboard
sailor with his Bimini top up. These Morgans have
the reputation of going eleven knots, seven knots
forward and four knots sideways. Well, sideways
she went! Past Irwin fourty-six's, Bristly thirty-
sixes and even an Irwin one ton racing design...
Charlie Morgan must be proud.
To me that's what a race is all about, to take a
traditional old timer and really make her perform,
pass up some of that new technology with sailing
skill, tactics and seamanship. Another example
of an older design showing her speed was an E.
scow sailed by Jim Williams. He even had those
fast catamarans looking over their shoulders.
Here is a toast to the wind god; let's hope the
weather is as fine again next year, maybe it will
draw out some of the old Hirshoffs and Aldens
sailboats that look like boats and pass up some of
those new designed bustle-butted boats painted
up like a Burger King ad. With all the different
designs it just proves that sailing is an art, not an

that is both healthy and non-polluting."
Members who pay their yearly dues benefit
from boardsailing clinics, practice races, a
newsletter, and social activities. The
Boardsailing Association also serves as a
clearinghouse for all types of sailing information
and events in South Florida.
One of the major reasons for the group's
formation was to secure beach access for
boardsail launching. The club succeeded in
working with the city to promote a safe and
accessible launching area on South Beach.
Two adjoining areas were created on South
Beach that accommodate trailerboat and
sailboard launching. McNaughton relates, "The
whole area was widened, an information "kioske'
was put up, and buoys were stationed along the
The information 'kioske* permits sailors and
others to know where they can launch, and the

Hillsboro Inlet Sailing Club
Hillsboro Inlet Sailing Club is a club for sailing
families in the Northern Broward and Southern
Palm Beach Counties of Southeastern Florida.
The club's member families are located primarily
in the area surrounding the Hillsboro and Boca
Raton Inlets. Organized to promote both cruising
and racing activities, HISC currently boosts a
roster of over 200 member families.
The cruising program includes short cruises up
and down Florida's eastern shoreline followed by
raft-ups, and an ample compliment of social
activities, as well as numerous longer cruises to
the Bahamas and Florida Keys. In the warmer
months, there is generally a cruise scheduled
each month. In all cases, the more experienced
sailors in the club provide the leadership and
guidance required to insure the safety comfort,
and enjoyment of all club members involved.
The racing program is comprised of five series
of four races each, and are conducted all year.
Boats are divided into two classes; PHRF for the
more experienced racers, and a club handicapped
Performance Class. The Performance Fleet
operates on a rating system (derived from the
PHRF rule) where each boat's rating is allowed to
change following each race, based on the boat's
actual performance in that race, and promotes
the ability foi all boats in the Performance fleet to
be competitive on an ongoing basis, regardless of
crew changes, age or condition of the boat and
it's equipment. After race parties allow the racing
skippers, crews,, and families to continue the
excitement of the competition and tell lies well
after the results have been computed and

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each
month at the Sea Garden Motel and Restaurant on
A1A in Pompano Beach. A short social hour at
7:30 pm is followed by a formal business meeting
and a program offering of either educational or
entertainment value. Prospective new members
and guests are always welcome to attend these
meeting and are encouraged to take advantage of
the club's many programs and sailing activities.

Blind Sailor Recoverying
by Jennifer Heit
Sherie DeGroff knows how to meet a challenge
whether it's learning to sail or dealing with the
fact that she is blind.
"I've always had a sense of humor," she
explains. "And that can get you through a lot."
Seven years ago the 38-year-old woman came
to Fort Lauderdale to try her hand at sailing. In
boat yards she was taught how to refinish
brightwork. Eventually she became a mate on a
boat and acquired a compulsion for sailing. She
bought a boat.
Then Sherie discovered she had diabetes and
was gradually going blind. As her signt weak-
ened, she found it more and more difficult to self-
inject the necessary insulin. Later, an inadequate
kidney operation left her sick and alone. She sold
"There was a point when I was so sick that all I
could do was lay in bed, day after day. Every once
in a while someone from the dock would look in
the boat to make sure I was still there and alive."
The dock is off of Cardoda Road where Sherie
lives aboard a24-foot Columbia Sloop. There, she
grows herbs and flowers, bakes gourmet bread
and cultivates bee hives for honey. The sale of the
honey is helping to pay off a newly purchased
Preci-Jet 50 Injector, a device used to inject
insulin without a needle. "It makes things much
easier," says Sherie.
Recently Sherie underwent a lens implant
operation that has restored partial vision,

"Just being able to see a little has helped. The

begun sanding. Aside from that, you should see
all the laundry I have piled up!"
'She's been through quite a hard time." said
Diane Baloug of the Diabetes Research

Diabetes is a harsh illness but every day research

10 Waterfront News May 15 June 15, 1986 Volume 3 Issue 3
by Bryan Brooks
Recently in a local newspaper an event was
reported in the sports page that many of us in the
diving community find incredible. A diver was
shown in all his glory standing next to a fifteen
foot hammerhead shark on the fishing docks at
Chub Cay in the Bahamas.
The story was incredible too, especially that it
was printed in the sports section. It seemed that
the great white hunter spotted the large
hammerhead in the flats. At first thinking it was
an airplane that had crashed, it turned out to be
the large hammerhead. Then the great hunter
followed it for about twenty minutes. He then
decided to jump in and speared the fish as it was
going away from him. They finally were able to
pull it into Chub Cay for the proud moment of
The story reported that Dr. Sonny Gruber from
the University of Miami stated it might be around
100 years old. The fish was so large that it
couldn't be mounted and nobody's freezer was
big enough to put it in. So they cut theteeth out of
the animal and towed it out to sea. Great sport.
Dr. Gruber also reported that contrary to
legend, the hammerhead is less harmful to divers
than lemon and nurse sharks which we encounter
off Fort Lauderdale on almost every dive.
So an animal that has been around this planet
since before the invention of the automobile, and
was of no threat to anyone, was killed. Then the
fish wasn't eaten or mounted, merely
disemboweled and towed out to sea as rubbish.
Those of us in Week of the Ocean think that its
time to start educating people to what sharks
really do, and don't do. The shark is a beautiful
predator that scientists think has been around for
over forty million years. A predator serves a
valuable purpose on this planet. The fears that
Hollywood and TV foster have to be counter
balanced with truth and documentation.
As a result Week of the Ocean, a local group
founded by Broward County school teachers for
the education of the Ocean, is forming a group
within its organization called Friends of the
Shark Committee. This doesn't mean that we're
looney enough to go out and kiss sharks. But it
does mean that we had better take a closer look at
them and their importance to us on this planet.
We realize that we as divers don't necessarily
have the academic expertize to give lectures as
truth. However we are eagerly soliciting material
-and slides from those experts so that we can get
the word out.
There are organizations out to save whales and
dolphins and that is as it should be. Somehowthe
shark has always been painted as this evil
creature that is out to eat us. Old fishermans'
legends and movies have done a great job on
placing an unnatural fear of this beautiful
creature in us. We think it's time to come back
with the truth. Truth through Week of the Ocean
and truth we can back up by getting it from the
people in the academic community that have the
credibility to say it. We intend to gather facts and
slides so that we will be able to speak to any
group or school that is interested in hearing the
other side of shark.
No one is saying that if you are in the wrong
place at the wrong time that a shark attack isn't
possible. They are the perfect predator and under
certain circumstances an attack is possible. But I
have researchFd this very closely and thoroughly
and I can tell you for a fact, no shark has ever
come out of the water at Las Olas and Atlantic and
shot anybody. The reverse is not true as that
latest Rambo story would indicate. Who should
be afraid of who?
We would like to hear your comments. Many
fishermen on the charter docks apparently feel
the same way. A customer recently came in who
had been fishing with one of the boats on the
docks at Bahia Mar. They caught two large
hammerhead out in the Gulfstream. The captain
and mate told them if they weren't going to eat
them or mount them, then they go back where
they belong, in the sea. Bravo.

Volume 3 Issue 3 May 15 -June 15, 1986 Waterfront News 1
by Rachel Leach
Prior to the enactment of laws setting forth
salvor's rights in the early twentieth century,
bands of "wreckers" as they were known, roamed
the east coast of Florida and the Keys waiting for
news of a sinking ship. An elaborate spy network
existed to tip off "wreckers" so that they might be
the first group to reach the unfortunate vessel
and have sole rights to salvage the ship and its
cargo. However, since the enactment of the
Florida Salvage Statutes and the emergence of
underwriters who insure both vessel and cargo;
things have changed.
By way of example, if you were coming in from
a day of dolphin fishing and you found a boat
floating with no one aboard, what rights would
you have if you decided to tow it to port?
Conversely, what duty would you have if you
decided to leave it? If you were to tow it to port,
you would have an absolute claim for salvage
against the owner or underwriter of the vessel.
The exact amount of your salvage award would
be based on a number of factors..
First of all, what was the value of the vessel
and any cargo aboard her? Was the vessel in any
danger of capsizing? What were the risks
involved? Was the cargo perishable and how
difficult a job was it for the salvor? According to
Steve Parrot of Titan Towing & Salvage, a Fort
Lauderdale based Salvage Firm, usually the
underwriter and the salvor come to an agreement
regarding the compensation to be paid to the
salvor. If the parties cannot agree on the amount
of compensation, then the salvor can file a
salvor's lien against the vessel in the amount he
thinks.he is due for his service. The underwriter or
owner must pay the salvor, or post a bond in the
lien amount if he wishes to regain possession of
the vessel or cargo. The salvor must take the
necessary steps to insure the cargo or. vessel
does not deteriorate thereby losing its value.
If the salvor does not get paid, he must file the
owner of the vessel to attempt to.foreclose on his
lien; The judge will appoint two disinterested
citizens, of the county to determine the
compensation.that the salvor is to receive. A
judicial sale is then ordered and the salvor is paid
from the proceeds of the sale.
In most cases the underwriter is notified of the
loss by the owner of the vessel and immediately
" requests bids from commercial salvage
companies to salvage the vessel.
S If you decide,not to tow the boat in, you have a
'duty to notify the proper authorities. The State of
Florida, in its sovereign capacity, will require the
owner or underwriter, if any to remove the vessel.
If the owner refuses, the state may call for bids
from private salvage firms. The vessel will then
'be sold at a judicial sale to pay the salvor. Any
remaining proceeds are. paid to the State
If you find a vessel indistress and decidetb tol
it in, it is called towage and like salvage, you are
entitled to compensation. The finder, hereinafter
referred to as the tug, and the owner .of the
disabled vessel will come to an agreement as to
the paymentfor services. The owner of the
disabled vessel must be aware of certain facts.
The tug is not responsible for improperly stored
.cargo aboard the vessel in tow. If the vessel is
damaged while in tow, it is up to the disabled
vessel's owner to prove that the damage is the
result of poor helmsmanship on the part of the

"Dining" Out: Fort Lauderdale Seafood Festival
by Nedda Anders
It's an irresistible assignment from Waterfront
News: cover the 1986 Fort Lauderdale Seafood
Festival. So begins my taste tour of 20 Broward's
better seafood restaurants, all bedded down side
by side on the North Bank of the New River on
Saturday afternoon in April: For several hours on
that pleasant day I nibbled, sipped, snacked and
noshed my way through a succulent array of
tropical edibles, mostly from the briny. I loved
every minute of it.
According to Patricia A. Rathburn. its
Chairperson, the Festival was conceived as a
"day long treat for the eye, ear and palate" to
raise funds for the Fort Lauderdale Historical
Society. On all counts it was a huge success.
Hordes of hungry masses yearning for seafood
turned out to munch, enjoy the bands (eight
combos played country rock, blues, Latin, jazz
and classical music at different times of the day),
and stroll through Bubier Park. In a crowd
variously estimated at 50,000 to 75,000 people,
everyone seemed to be having a good time.
Feeding that many mouths could strain even the
best serving staff, but patience and good humor
prevailed although lines 20 and 30 deep formed
around most booths.
The "eat and run" concept of food intake on
which this kind of event is based has become so
stylish in Northern cities that it's been given a
name, grazing, which implies eating lightly. Of
course, if you graze richly in enough pastures,
the results can be infinitely more punishing in
calories, cholesterol, and cost than if you dined
How much can a day like this cost? Plenty. In
fact, you could go broke if you're an insatiable
fresser. As a part of the clever economic
conception, the Festival people decreed that each
exhibitor serve a different kind of seafood dish,
no more than two kinds at a booth. Although unit
pricing was gentle, sensational smells emanating
from the portable kitchens made'you faint with
desire even when you were no longer truly
hungry. But it's only fair to mention that you
could cruise the whole riverfront festival area for
hours without spending a cent, since there was no
charge for admission.
A roll-call of festival highlights follows (see
complete list of participating restaurants and the
dishes they served below), the best of the salads
was a local specialty, prepared on the spot.
Before your eyes, palm logs were trimmed of
bark, then sliced, swathed in dressing, and there
is your sparkling fresh hearts of palm salad, as
exciting as the most complex assemblage. Pick
up the creamy pieces with your fingers: the
plastic forks served at this kind of fete are
exasperating to use.
It's the little things that count in soup, and a
fabulous bouillabaisee floating small but
numerous dice of shrimp, clams,whitefish, crab,
scallops and tomatoes made a heady infusion. A
jambalaya stew, conch and New England
chowders, and a Manhattan boat chowder(nicely
spiced but with big, hard-to-handle potato
chunks) expanded the list.
There was a raw bar too, steamed mussels,
Alaskan queen crab (the meat was mostly
inaccessible), and small boiled lobster halves.
My favorite thing of the sea, stone crabs, was
sold out hours before the festival closed. Too bad.
From the deep fryers came delectable smells.

place a Classified Ad. 524-9450
Crab cakes, clam fritters, and a finger-licking
delicious Cajun-style seafood turnover (pie) were
among the offerings. "Put some South in your
mouth" with the fryer food fried grouper fingers
and catfish, both unassailably fresh. The
standout fryer food came from the booth serving
conch fritters and conch steak sandwiches.
Conch can be a tough little meat, but happily,
these tidbits had been properly tenderized

bruised in the kitchen, then marinated in lime
.juice and water.
Other tasty options were grilled fillet of salmon
or swordfish wrapped in a banana leaf and
mesquite-grilled, and chargrilled shrimp. I heard
that the blackened tuna and especially the
coconut shrimp were delicious; somehow I
missed the booth.
To benefit the Historical Society, hordes of
volunteers sold corn on the cob, key lime pie,
beer, champagne and other indispensable liquids
But the best-of-show was an inventive and
inexpensive seafood pizza, sold at $2.50 for a
large wedge. It was a sublime affair of crust
Stopped with a mix of seafood and perfectly
seasoned thick sauce. As fast as the wedges sold
out, replenishments came from the mother
kitchen in the restaurant just outside Bubier Park.
Word gets out fast when something this good,is
offered, and folks followed the pizza trail to one
of the busiest sites in the Park.
Now that I've fallen in love with seafood
Festivals, I can hardly wait for next year's event.
Maybe I won't have to. The Pompano Chamber of
Commerce is staging one on May 17 and 18, at
Atlantic Boulevard on the Beach. Who knows? I
might pickup an assignment to cover it, and I
won't say no.

WHY DO THE NATIVES
GO TO PELICAN PUB
FOR FRESH SEAFOOD?
At this time of year, if you were to walk into Pelican Pub and,
count the regulars you would find more of them than first-timers.
Why? Just maybe it is because the food at Pelican Pub is as
fresh.as they say it is. Long-time residents of South Florida
can be pretty particular about their seafood. Especially fish.
Once you taste the sweet texture of really fresh fish that has
never been frozen you will never go back to the fish-out-of-
the-freezer that most restaurants serve.
Steamer clams, a New England and New York favorite, are
only good if the clams are fresh. At Pelican Pub the delicious
Ipswich Soft-Shelled Clams are flown in live and kept that way
until steaming. The same is true of the Maine Lobsters. There
is always a great size selection of these huge-clawed beauties
on view in the big tank by the front door.
There is a fish market loaded with fresh fish fillets, whole
fish, Florida Lobsters, shrimp (including the jumbos) resting
on beds of ice just waiting to be taken out. Experienced local
residents shop here regularly for the quality and incredible
selection. The market doesn't close at night until the restaurant
does. An added bonus is your chance to choose your own
fish from the display case for dinner.
Pelican Pub is the place for people particular about fresh
seafood. Luncheon is served from 11:30am-4pm and dinner
from 4-9pm (9:30 on Fridays and Saturdays).

Because of the seriousness of the declining
king mackerel population and government
regulations on bag limit, the Rodeo Committee
and the six sponsors of king mackerel awards
have voted to substitute all species of tuna for
king mackerel for 1986. Anglers in both the
sportfishing and drift divisions are asked to
release all king mackerel caught during the
Rodeo to assist in this conservation effort.
Should the king mackerel population improve,
the species would be reinstated in future events.
The Rodeo is negotiating to purchase a
freighter to sink on the "Rodeo Reef" off Pompano
Beach just prior to the awards presentation at the
Seafood Festival on Sunday, May 18. Donations
of $100 are being received now from
environment-minded businesses and individuals
wishing to participate in this purchase. The first
150 donations received by May 2 will be eligible to.
have the freighter and reef site named in their
behalf. For further information on the new reef or

Classic Drops King
The conservation-oriented South Florida Fishing
Classic has dropped king mackerel from it's list of
eligible species for this year.
Due to the decimation of the kingfish
population in South Florida, the South Florida
Fishing Classic has elected to fish for only wahoo
and dolphin during the tournament which is set
Dolphin Fishing Tournament
Shirtail Charlie's Restaurant, 400 S.W. 3rd
Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, will host its 2nd Annual
Dolphin Fishing Tournament on Sunday, July 20,
The one-day "fun" tournament will offer a top
prize of $25,000 for and IGFA All-Tackle World
Record Dolphin, plus many other cash and
merchandise prizes. The prizes will be awarded
at a cookout and party at Shirttail Charlie's,
located in downtown Fort Lauderdale on the
'South bank of the New River.
The Tournament is being held to benefit the
Broward Nephrology Patients Fund.
Anglers will be fishing for dolphin, sailfish,
marlin, wahoo, king and tuna from 8:00 A.M. to
3:30 P.M. Weigh-in at Shirttail Charlie's will be
supervised by Ms. Betty Beardemphl, long
associated with local fishing tournaments. Entry
fee is $35 per angler and prizes will be awarded to
the heaviest fish in each class, top boat, top lady
and top junior angler, as well as a special "Grand
Slam" prize of $1,000 for a dolphin, sailfish and

"We hope our action of not fishing for kings,
During the 1986 South Florida Fishing Classic, will
lead the way in aiding to, restore the king
mackerel fisheries," said Patricia Carr,
The minimum weight requirement of 15 pounds
will remain the same, however, as will the prize
structure with $10,000 awarded for each heaviest
wahoo and dolphin.
The Fishing Classic is unique among
tournaments because it is fished simultaneously
from four inlets and anglers may register to fish
from the inlet of their choice.
"Daily inlet prizes for the heaviest fish from
each of the four inlets; Palm Beach, Hillsboro,
Port Everglades and Government Cut have been
added to give anglers an even better chance to
share in the money," added Carr.
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.

LOOK FOR WILD'COFFEE IN YOUR LANDSCAPE!
If it isn't there, it should be for Wild Coffee is one
of the unique native plants of South Florida. Since
it is also a native plant of the Bahamas and the
West Indies, you may catch a glimpse of this
slender, tropical, understory shrub while
vacationing there. Wild Coffee normally reaches
a height of 6 8 feet and prefers the filtered
sunlight environment of a canopy characteristic
of hammocks. Distinguished by its elliptic, 2-6
inch deeply veined, evergreen leaves and red
drupes, Wild Coffee is valued highly by both
humans and animals.
Erdman West coined the name "Seminole
Balsamo" to Psychotria undata referring to an
aromatic ointment for ceremonial or medicinal
use. Psychotria in the Greek language translates
to "giving life or spirit to" or vivifyingg", which
suggests a medicinal value; however, I couldn't
find any direct reference to any medicinal use of
this plant. On the other hand, it is in the same
family as the cinchona trees of South America
from which quinine is prepared and the Georgia
Bark tree or Fever tree, of which bark was used.
for medicinal purposes. Because Wild Coffee
"beans" resemble its namesake the common
coffee tree, Coffea arabica, it could have been
used as a pick-me-up tonic as coffee is used
today. Actually, many hours of collecting seeds,
(two per drupe), drying, roasting, and grinding
the "beans" and steeping 1 2 teaspoons per cup
of hot water, you end up with one very bitter cup
For those of you who are survivalists, Wild
Coffee fruit is edible, but has a nondescript flavor
However, cardinals, blue jays, catbirds,
raccoons, and squirrels love the fruit and depend
on Wild Coffee as a partial food source. Clusters
of white flowers appearing in spring and summer
attract many species of butterflies, honey bees,
and other pollinating insects. Its leaves provide
food for leaf rollers, which in turn provide food for
ants, and other carnivorous insects.
If you don't have Wild Coffee in your landscape,
you can purchase it from a native plant nursery or
gain permission from the owner of a future
bulldozing site to remove existing plants.
Remember, if the shrub is large, prune 1/3 of the
foliage before transplanting. Wild Coffee can also
be started from seed. By adding this native plant
to your landscape, you are single handedly
establishing food and habitat for Florida's
diminishing wildlife and preserving a native and

Beach Cleanup A Shining Success
by Craig Lustgarten
Fort Lauderdale beach never looked so
immaculate after hundreds of volunteers worked
close to four hours on a Saturday morning to
"Make It Shine."
The volunteers of all ages picked up trash,
painted, planted, and mulched their way from the
beach to the intracoastal, cleaning up the debris
left behind by spring breakers and others over the
past weeks. The whole effort was co-ordinated by
members of the Beach Environment Association
and Second Century Broward.
Broward County's Sheriff Nick Navarro and
commissioner Jim Naugle participated in the
morning's activities, with Navarro pitching in to
clear trash from the woods of the historical
Navarro explained the importance of his
participation and members of the "Sheriff's
Explorers" help in the cleanup: "If we have any
pride in our community, then it is necessary to
come out and cleanup on a Saturday, even if it
means getting my hands dirty."
Another participating organization, members
of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Board Sailing
Association contributed their efforts by
landscaping a section of the South Beach
Municipal Parking Lot-- planting palms and
morning glories in a triangular strip.
The boardsailing association's founder, Peter
McNaughton related, "We adopted the South
Beach area for "Make It Shine" because this is
where we do.our sailing from."
And member Helaine Ruddy, who was busily
painting the guardhouse at the lot's entrance said
that she hadn't been down to the beach often
enough lately to notice that the work was really
needed. Ruddy added, "This is my way of getting
involved in the improvement of the beach area."
Two other areas targeted for the cleanup
included the perimeters of Birch Park and John
Lloyd State Park in Dania. Members of the
Environmental coalition, the Carpenters Union,
and the Audubon Society went into the Dania park
and swept out the whole area, including the
After the morning cleanup, a celebration was
held at Penrods on the beach. Weary volunteers
partook in food, refreshments, and entertainment
dressed in their pink-colored "Make It Shine" T-
shirts, Coordinator Shelia Harrigan of Second
Century Broward stood up and expressed her
sentiments on the day's accomplishments.
Harriqan related that more beautification
projects are in the works including the
refurbishing of the Voyager tram station on South
Harrigan also commented on the welcome
return of quieter times now thatithe busy season
is over: "The snowbirds are gone, the locals are
returning, and it is nice to have the beach back."
She added that every effort is going to be made
to make "shore shine" an annual event every year
after Spring Break.

Hurricane Season Begins
Volume 3 Issue 3 May 15 June 15, 1986 Waterfront News 19
From This Dock
by Capt. Bill Hard
In case someone may not have gotten wind of
it, hurricane season has arrived. For better or
worse, like a marriage, things can become
terribly stormy when you least expect.
In the past years Mother Nature has been very
considerate of us by spending her unpredictable
temper on our friends and relatives living up
North. There live the people who warned you not
to move to South Florida because of all those
nasty hurricanes, like the ones that ripped thru
Long Island last year. I may take a trip up there
this year just to see what we missed.
This could well be the year when the all familiar
hurricane threats will not be the usual false
alarms we have become accustomed to.
Coconuts fly like cannonballs, pebble roofs
become giant sand blasters, boats blow about
like toys and the beach moves over A1A where
"the boys were". Lawn furniture from across town
winds up in your yard, and water finds its way
thru every crack and opening you never dreamed
existed. Don't count on electric service at any
price, water or phone service. You may have
wisely topped off your fuel tanks in advance;
unfortunately few roads will be open to traffic for
The bottom line is too much preparation may
never be enough but it sure beats getting caught
with your sails down. Should your boat be
difficult to protect at its current dock, then this is
a good time to stay on good terms with any
friends you know living on the water out West
where the canals are safer from wind and tide

rise. Bildge pumps can save the family yacht,
large or small, providing they have automatic
float switches. Canvas tops left up can be
considered an insurance loss along with
outriggers and antennas left standing. All kinds
of unpleasant things happen, especially to boats.
Now is definitely the time to read the fine print on
your insurance policy, or call your agent about
your coverage before you need it. Your "pride and
joy" may only be covered by typhoon damage,
The last time you purchased gas for "old
seaworthy" did you ask why it's 50% more than
the same gas across the street? I inquired at
several gas docks along New River and the
Intercoastal. Most had no time to talk about it or
were unavailable at the time. Those that would
comment on price had the standard answers,
"supply and demand", or "you can afford the boat,
you can afford the gas". I do know that they pay
the same for the fuel as any service station in
town, by volume. I did not know that owning a
boat made one wealthy, at least not living by the
The lowest price I found on the water was West
of 1-95, but not much lower. Gas selling for80 per
gallon on land was $1.20 on the water and higher.
You.thought the utility companies had you over a
barrel, try a gas dock for "service". Better yet, ask
why they justify a 50% price hike next time you fill
up. You won't like the answer, if you get one, even
though you have to "buy" it.

Now that the gas price is supposed to be low
and no hurricanes are in sight, the best way to
enjoy those off days is in the boat fishing or just
sailing about. It sure beats painting the house and
cutting the lawn.

information for boats and Waterfront

Ask Big Al
At the boat ramps many boaters ask for a jump-
start. The new batteries now mostly have side
cable ends which are practically impossible to
attach to. Top terminals were easy. Where do I
now clamp the cables and are there any hazards
to be avoided indoing this? How long should
these cables be as from boat to boat or to car can
be a distance.
The 15th Street Navy
Dear Fellow Boaters,
First my personal opinion about jump starting
Sat the ramps is a no, no. If yourbattery is so down
that it won't start at the ramp, how will you
charge it enough to start again out at the Gulf
Streak or fishing grounds. Batteries over two
years old or with wear or discharged cells should
be dumped. A good charged battery is a must in
an emergency. A loose or frayed alternator belt
will not allow a charge to feed into a battery also
a dry battery or insufficient water will not help
keep a battery charged. If your battery is fresh or
new a good charge will bring it back. Now for
cable hook ups. Cables should be heavy duty
cooper with heavy clamps, about 16-20 feet long.
Your grounds (black) ends can be clamped to the
engine bolts on both engines as they are
grounded to the battery. On the boat or car the
positive (red) clamp can hold on the solinoid bolt
or cross over pos. switch or cable end. Make sure'
pos. to pos. neg. to neg. or you can short outyour
alternator. Run engine for short while to help
charge battery, before starting engine on boat.
Again let me say don't go out with a weak or
discharged battery as you can'tget a boostor jump
start outside in rough weather.
I've tried to call you a number of times butyour
never home it seems so I'm writing you now. I
want to do a lot of water skiing with friends what
would you recommend in a boat for water sports.
Please write to the Waterfront News. They send
me all the mail and I can get back to you, I'm out
most of the time, down in Key West, & teaching
for the Coast GuardAux, and talking to groups on
marine engines, safety on the water and marine
crime watch. Now for your request. It takes a lot
of power to pull a skier up out of the water & to
pull more than one, still more. A boat with a big V8
engine in it rigged for skiing should do the job for
you. I would like to see a ski boat with a Berkley
Jet pulling a water skier. No prop to cut or tangle
lines or cut anyone in the water. I would advise
you to check out other ski boats and get
information on H.P. & boat sizes they use & like.
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM OF ANY KIND WITH YOUR
BOAT. WRITE TO:

mile legs. Sand banks and shifting sand bores
caused some complications for race teams, but
light winds and flat water conditions proved
perfect for high speed runs that shattered
standing records in Open and Pro-Stock Classes.
Driver Al Copeland, of Metairie, Louisiana and
throttleman Bill Sirois, in a new "Popeyes/Diet
Coke," smashed in existing Open Class course
average speed record of 97.469 mphby turning in
an unofficial, but blistering 103.176 mph run over
the 150 miles. The new boat is a radically
designed 35-foot Cougar Catamaran powered by
six Mercury 2.4 outboard powerheads driving
MerCruiser #4 sterndrives.
"We wanted to qualify the boat for a shot atthe
straightaway kilo record this year," said
Copeland, the high-boat Superboat Class winner
in 1985," but we also dreamed of setting a new
course average speed record for Open Class at
this first race, if conditions were right."
Copeland had set the old record in a race at
New Orleans in 1984.
The conditions were right, but accomplishing a
new course speed record was far from easy. Sal
Magluta, of Miami, Open Class high point
National Champ for 1985 driving "Seahawk," with
Gus Falcon on throttles and Formula One
Champion Ben Robertson navigating, exchanged
the lead with Copeland several times during the
Magluta's 36-foot black-and-silver aluminum
Cougar Cat was a strong contender until she
overheated and lost power in one of her 700-hp
KS&A engines when a coolant hose came loose.
"Seahawk" finished fifth in Open class.
With Chris Lavin, of Westport, Connecticut at
the wheel and his brother Mark on the throttles,
the twin-750 hp MerCruiser-powered Chris
Craft/Conquest "Jesse James" surged from
behind on the last leg of the course and crossed
the finish line ahead of all other Open Class
contenders. But Chief Referee Rajah Rodgers
assessed a 10-minute penalty against the "Jesse
James" team for being on plane in the milling area
prior to the start of the race, making their effort
only good enough for third place. The Lavins'
adjusted time was 93.052 mph.
Second place in Open Class went to "Special
Edition," a 30-foot Chris Craft driven by John
D'Elia of Cos Cob, CT and throttled by John
Dirgins of Riverside, CT D'Elia and Dirgins moved
up 4rom the Modified Class for this race, and
turned in an average course speed of 103.034 mph
while finishing third and correcting to second
"Systems," a 38-foot aluminum Cougar Cat
driven by Bob Kaiser of Grosse Point, MI with
Errol Lanier on the throttles, took fourth place
with an average speed of 91.167 mph.
The Naples, FL team of driver Art Swift,
throttleman Rodger Munn and navigator Dean
Stahlman took sixth place in "Daddy Cool," a 35-
Five boats started in Pro-Stock, racing a total
of 112.5 miles. Dominick Palmobi's record of 84.37
mph, set in 1985, fell to Mike Dallwitz from
Portage des Sioux, MO, and Edward Colyer from
St. Charles, MO, who drove the 24-foot Douglas
'Skater "Long Shot" to a new course average
record of 93.426 mph, as well as first place.
Their efforts were nearly equalled by the Fort
Lauderdale team of driver James Bates,
navigator Tom Bates and throttleman A.J.
Schwencke, turning in an average speed of 93.422
mph, in "Bandit".
Third place belonged to "Captain America,"
clocking in at 90.483 mph. The red-hulled 30-foot
Chris Cat is owned and driven by Omar Elesgaray,
navigated by Maynard Hellman and throttled by
Ed Martinez, all three from Miami, Fl.
"Agitator," a 30-foot Shadow Cat finished
fourth, averaging 89.784 mph. This Oak Park,
Illinois, entry is owned and driven by Allman
Dunteman, with Kirk Dunteman at the throttles.
Bob Erickson, of Minnetonka, MN combined
with throttleman Harold Stepp of Howell, MI to
move up from Stock A Class for this race and
clairn fifth place in the 24-foot-Skater'"M.ercury.

Charter Association Jibes With Bureaucracy
by Capt. Ed Wiser
U.S. based bareboat charter companies can
now charter to foreign nationals, John Yeager,
active chairman of the newly formed Florida
Yacht Yacht Charter Association, announced at
the organization's April 24, 1986meeting in Dania.
For years it has been a violation of Federal law to
charter documented yachts to non- United States
citizens. This had reportedly resulted in revenue
losses for American firms as Canadian and
European sailors took their sailing vacations and
their money elsewhere. The change has come at a
very propitious moment since increasing
terrorist activity in Europe bodes well for a tourist
windfall in Florida.
Mike Dudik of Sail the Rainbow Islands pointed
out that the Coast Guard is planning a major push
to insure that barefoot firms adhere strictly to
regulations when requiring captains aboard
'1986/87 International Boat
Shows Calendar' Now Available
NEW YORK -- The "1986/87 International Boat
Shows Calendar," a handbook listing major boat
shows in the United States and 14 countries
worldwide, has been published by the National
Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the
trade association for the recreational boating
"Dealers credit an average of 40 percent of their
boat sales to boat shows," said Frank Scalpone,
NMMA's executive vice president. "The calendar
is useful to the entire boating industry for boat
show exhibit planning."
NMMA contacted private boat show
management companies and marine trades
associations which sponsor or produce boat
shows to compile a complete and current listing
of major boat shows. Each listing includes the
show name, location and dates through 1990
where available, and the name and address of the
show producer and sponsor. The listings are
arranged alphabetically by state and country.
The'-1986/87 International Boat Shows
Calendar" is available for $2 per copy by writing

Other items on the association's monthly
meeting agenda included an across-the-board
raise for charter captains, and the election of new
officers for the trade group. Those attending
agreed that captains should be receiving $100 per
day for their services, instead of the prevailing
rate of $85. This marks the first significant pay
raise in over five years.
Eleven of association.officers was tabled until
the May meeting (the 22nd at Harbor Lights
Restaurant on U.S. 1 at Old Griffin Road in Dania)
when a U.S. Coast Guard representative, Lt. Cdr.
Terry Steinford, will discuss the legal aspects of
