Dear Al
My generator on my boat will not shut off after I
start it, to stop it I have to turn off the fuel and
pump, up fuel again to run it. Runs great but won't
turn off with switch.
Howard
Dear Howard
I don't know if you have a demand switch on
your generator, or your shore power line switch
to generator line is working, or your cut off or kill
switch is defective. Some generators cut in and
out automatically as they are needed. My advice
to you is to call whoever service s your make

Main Gaff Topside


Schooner,
c. 1890







Editor:
I was quite perturbed to read all the
misinformation in the story of Joe Maggio's
schooner, now named Heritage of Miami ("Tall
Ships Sails For Liberty" by Al Plant: Waterfront
News: June 15-July 15, 1986: page 11). It's a gaff
rigged schooner, not a tops le schooner (which
has square rigged tops'le). William Albury did not
design her: it was designed by the late Fred
Whittier from Ipswich. Mass. Her lines may be
similar to a 1890 pilot schooner but Fred followed
the lines of an old Gloucester fishing schooner
and named her Esperanto after one. She was built
in Albury's yard but Fred was the masterbuilder
and laid out the lines on a mold loft which he
rigged up out of plywood in the yard behind the
work shop.
William Albury had never built a boat that way.
I just think that my old friend. Fred Whittier.
should get the credit for doing a beautiful job.

Art Hansen
Man'0 War Cay
Abaco. Bahamas
Al Plant's response:
I wrote the article from information given to me
by the crew of the Heritage during an interview on
board -at Pier 66 in Fort Lauderdale. Any
"misinformation or unknown information as to
the original builder was not intentional on their
part. I am sure.
'The 'liopsail connotation ,is- noted in the
accompanying diagram of a schooner rig:from that
period To be exact the term gaff rigged topsail
schooner was taken from the sail labeled Main
gaff 'topsail: perhaps the'term gaff topsail
schooner would be more appropriate.

Editor's note: We appreciate Mr' Hansen's views
;and welcome the input from our readers. We're
glad'to see our newspaper carriers in the
Bahamas are doing their jobs. distributing the
Waterfront .News to points throughout the
islands.

DDA Endorses Riverwalk Funding


by M.G. Swift
Fort Lauderdale's Downtown Development
Authority has endorsed a proposed S8 million
bond issue which would finance certain
Riverwalk improvement projects, reducing the
city's redevelopment bill for the area spanning
both sides of the New River from the Southwest
7th Avenue boat ramps to east of the Stranahan
House. The DDA is hoping to send a positive
signal to voters outside the downtown, who could
be asked to tax themselves an extra S30 to S40 per
year in a November citywide referendum for
Riverwalk and a facelift of the beachfront strip.
according to DDA. Executive Diretor Bill Farkas.
(See "Riverwalk Update" and "Future of
Downtown Marina..." by Craig Lustgarten. page
four: and "Three Cities Vie..." by Nathan Roberts.
page seventeen: all three articles appear in the
July 15-August 15. 1986 Waterfront News.)
To finance the bond issue, downtown property
owners have agreed to maintain the current tax
rate of S3.50 per S1000 of assessed valuation
rather than letting the rate drop to S1.96 on
October 1 and to S1.50 a year later as was
previously planned.


The DDA could allocate the $8 million as
follows:
50% of the Brickell Avenue streetscape and
plaza construction, not to exceed S850.000.
25% of the linear park and small boat docks
construction, not to exceed S1.1 million.
50% of the Las Olas Boulevard promenade
and other streetscape improvements, not to
exceed S1 million.
100% of the Riverfront Plaza improvements.
not. to exceed S2 million.
100% of the cost to place all overhead
streetlight wires underground, not to exceed
S1.3 million.
Levy 51.75 million for additional improvements
identified by downtown property owners.
Says DDA Chairman Ed Benton of Colony Cleaner.
"By setting it up with percentages, we're
challenging Fort Lauderdale residents to match
these projects."

Summer Is Winding Down But Waterfront Keeps Boiling


by Nathan L. Roberts
Summer is starting to wind down but the heat
of plans, projects and problems besetting the
waterfront shows no sign of cooling.
Sunrise Bridge Work Lags
Traffic took front place also when merchants in
the area of the Galleria Mall protested that phase
.one of the Sunrise Boulevard bridge
reconstruction over the Intracoastal would not be
completed in time for the Christmas shopping
season. The State Department of Transportation
(DOT) has made known that the south span of the
bridge will not be ready until mid-January 1987,
some two months behind its previously
announced schedule. Original plans called forth
south span to be completed and open to traffic on
or about the beginning of November or 18 months
after work was started in May 1985.
The main reason given by DOT for the delay is
that a Philadelphia manufacturer and supplier of
gears, motors and other parts has gone out of
business. An Alabama firm has been retained to
fill the gap and started to supply the necessary
machinery during the first week of August. Work
on the north span of the bridge will begin when
the south span is finished and will take another
18 months to complete. When finally opened to
traffic in late 1988. the bridge will be four lanes in
each direction.
Meanwhile merchants in the Galleria district
are fuming. Many are dependent on Christmas
season shoppers for a make or break year. As
originally explained by DOT and the J.M. Foster
Company, the bridge contractor, only last year's
Christmas season (1985) was to have been

marked by a sharply narrowed traffic flow over
the bridge.
In an effort to ease the situation, the DOT has
called upon the U.S. Coast Guard to approve a
temporary lengthening of bridge downtime
intervals. According to Pat McCann, DOT's
resident construction engineer, a request has
gone to the Coast Guard for one opening of the
bridge per hour between Thanksgiving and
January 31. McCann explained that this would
help speed work on the bridge and validate DOT-s
pledge to the City of Fort Lauderdale, the Fort
Lauderdale/Broward County Chamber of
Commerce and other interests that the bridge
reconstruction would be completed on schedule
At present, the bridge is opened twice each hour--
at half-hour intervals -- from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
McCann expressed confidence that the Coast
Guard response will come quickly and that it will
agree to the DOT request.
Live-Aboards Foul Canals
Waters of the Intracoastal -- a thoroughfare as
busy in its way as any of South Florida's main
motor vehicles arteries -- are suDject to the same
fouling and littering, some of it even worse than
on the interstates and turnpike.
The canals or wet streets of Hendricks Isle and
the Isle of Venice -- two narrow fingers of land
jutting northward from east Las Olas Boulevard --
have become literal toilets. The nasty effluent
stems from live-aboards on the nearly 450 boats
that tie up along the two isles. Property owners
charge $300 a month-for dockage but are said to
do nothing to stop the pollution or to clean it up.

"""""


just across the wet street from Hendricks Isle
describes the isle's marina area as "an open
septic tank." In a letter to City Hall, he cites "fecal
matter, toilet paper, soap suds and noxious
odors" that he says" the overwhelming majority
of live-aboards are pumping directly into the
canals."
Although a federal law requires boats with
toilets to have a holding tank equipped with a
treatment device, there-is no city ordinance that
requires property owners who rent dock space to
live-aboards to provide them with a pumping
station. Nor are there any public pumping
stations in the city, according to Jamie Hart, the
City of Fort Lauderdale's Supervisor of Marine
Facilities. The city's engineering department
estimates the cost of installing a pumping station
at $60,000 minimum. The only available pumping
station is at the Pier 66 Hotel and Marina. The
pumping cost there is eight dollars.
Pumping raw sewage into a canal is illegal but
the only agency that can enforce this restriction
is the U.S. Coast Guard. While Fort Lauderdale is
in the Coast Guard's enforcement zone the Guard
has only 30 marine safety officers i th zone that
stretches from Melbourne to Key West. Although
the Coast Guard is helped by the -lorida Marine
Patrol and city and county patrols, violators are
difficult to apprehend because they generally
discharge their tanks at night and have to be
caught doing it.
Hart says that the city is studying how to deal
with the problem. He admits he hasn't the
manpower but agrees "something has to be
done"

From This Dock
by Capt. Bill Hard
The Muscovy Duck (crappis incredibellis) -love
them or hate them, they share ourwaterways and
property with us. To some they are loveable, like
little children; to others they are unwanted as the
boll weevil is to the cotton farmer.
The brown and yellow baby. ducklings
following "mom" about are a sight to melt even
the coldest heart, but not for very long. The cute
peeping puff of fluff swimming about will soon
grow into fledgings awkward, curious,
friendly, bold and very hungry. A slice of bread
will bring them running much to the delight of the
youngsters and young at heart.
They would be a very poor insurance risk as
cats, dogs, hawks, automobiles and some.
unforgiving humans will shorten their lifespan
abruptly. Knowing this, "mama" duck will bring a
whole bunch of offspring into this world just to
beat the odds.
This often balances things out, and there are
usually enough'ducks left to keep things going.
However, should someone develop a taste for
peking duck, this could upset the balance in
certain areas.
Muscovys would be accepted better if only for
one thing, and you know what that is, and it's all
over the place- patio, docks, boat platforms,
walkways, etc. As of this date no known method
man has tried has deterred the ducks from their
appointed rounds. Lime and grapefruit missiles
have been tried; avacados are too hard to raise to
waste. Wild flailing broomsticks, loud vocal
threats, garden hose blasts (they love it), and
fences have all failed to discourage the duck.

Being intent on getting from pace to place, they
walk, run, swim and with great effort even
become airborne to reach their destination.
Unfortunately for the Muscovy, they are not too
bright and don't have enough smarts to stay
away from passing cars. This must have been
accounted for in nature's plan as many still
survive to carry on their task'.
The most humane way to control the unwanted
duck population that I know of is to remove the
eggs well before they have time to hatch. Some
anti-abortion advocates will most likely


disapprove, but you can't please all the people all
the time. After all, who can tell a duck egg from a
chicken egg? I wouldn't advise eating a duck egg
omelet make certain that "mama" said "cluck"
and not "quack" before you crack the egg's
contents into a frypan.
Should you have any thought on this matter,
please feel free to write "DONALD DUCK" care of
Disneyworld for an unbiased reply.
Finally, when you run your boat under any
fixed bridges, don't forget to "duck"; you may
avoid a bad "quack up"!


Bridgetender's House Restored By Sailboat Bend


Members of Sailboat Bend Civic Association
recently painted bridgetender's house of the
historic Southwest Eleventh Avenue bridge. The
oldest and only swing-bridge in Broward County
serves as this Southwest Fort Lauderdale
neighborhood's southern gateway. Nestled along
the north bank of New River's north fork, Sailboat
Bend residents are striving to upgrade the area.
Painting the bridgetender's house yellow with
green trim is just one of many neighborhood
improvement projects carried out or planned by
the civic association. Each month a home owner
or business is honored by the group for the
renovation, landscaping, ect. of his or her
property.
Sailboat Bend is the nearest residential area to
downtown Fort Lauderdale and will, before the
end of this decade be within an easy stroll of the
Performing Arts Center and stradle the western
terminus of Fort Lauderdale's visionary River
walk project.
The neighborhood clearly stands on the


threshold of becoming either the cultural and
residential Coconut Grove of Fort Lauderdale, or
the residents could be squeezed out from the west
by the Broward County School Board, the north
by development along Broward Boulevard and
from the east by the westward expansion of
downtown.
Projects such as the painting of the Eleventh
Avenue bridgetender's house indicates which
wav the Sailboat Bend neighbors want to go.

Special Lobster Season, An After Thought


by Byran Brooks
The two-day lobster special season is over for
this year. There are some good things that
happened and perhaps some other things that we
as divers should look back on.
There was an enormous number of divers who
participated in the hunt.
It's good that our sport has grown to such an
extent. Diving has increased in the public's
interest with over a half million divers a year
getting certified. With these kinds of numbers
come some responsibility we have to.face if we
expect our sport to go on without some kind of
government interference.
For instance, with the vast amount of boats
anchored on our second reef during the two-day
season, one could almost walk from boat to boat
from one end of Broward County to the other. Are
we as boaters using the reefs properly in the way
we anchor? Reports are coming in about the scars
left by the armada of diving boats on our soft
coral reef. Divers also tell of antennas left all over
the reef bottom by hunters pursuing the spiny
creature.
Some divers don't take the whole lobster as
state law requires. They simply pull the tail from
the carapace, leaving the carapace on the reef.
Law requires that we bring the entire lobster back
to the dock or beach. Some divers continue to
take shorts, that is the carapace is under three
inches, or the tail was under five and half inches.
Perhaps one of the saddest things we do is to
take the female lobsters with eggs, again
illegally. This is stupid and shortsighted, because

we are killing off.the very creature we seem to
crave. Even many older diehard castoffs from the
fifties, who resent anyone telling them not to take
game from the ocean, are becoming disgusted
with the newer reef raiders.
With freedom comes responsibility. If we
expect this season to continue we have to police
ourselves. If we don't, someone else will. The
reports from the Florida Marine Patrol tell of
hundreds of arrests and citations. Personally I'm
glad they are here doing the job. Hopefully it will
make the rest of us think a little.
Some of the dive instructors and shop owners
in Broward County are working with
governmental agencies to help push back the
opening of the season. With the large amount of
females with eggs seen, this would appear to be a
good thing. Maybe the lobster requirements
should also include increasing the size of what is
legal to take.
In diving as in everything else on this planet,
we have to come to grips with fact that the
goodies out there aren't inexhaustable. We can
and have in-different cases taken them all.
Extinct. Why do we always have to learn the hard
way? In the third world countries where they do
kill everything, at least they have an excuse, they
are hungry and uneducated.
Many divers aren't even aware that by
groveling around on the coral they are hurting the
reefs as they pursue the lobster. After the great
white hunter has left, between his anchor and
himself walking all over the reef, the place is a
shambles.

The answer or at least part of it comes with the
initial instructor who certified this mutant. How
many of us who teach diving spend the proper
amount of time explaining our responsibilities
when we as divers enter this most beautiful
environment on earth. We all, as instructors, use
drills that keep the student alive and spending,
but we do our job in explaining their role to
preserve, not destroy. Do the gods in the
instructor agencies stress the need to educate
divers they certify so that future generations
might see something alive down there? I wonder.
Remember, we don't own this planet, we're
passing through. Long after we're gone Mother
Ocean will still be sending her waves upon our
shore. But will there be anything left alive in her
belly.

"Beach Angels" Cleaning Up Pompano Beach


Quietly for the past six years a group of mostly
retired Pompano beachfront residents have been
cleaning that community's beach from the
Hillsboro Inlet to south of Atlantic Boulevard. The
"Beach Angels". as they call themselves, have
numbered as many as thirty volunteer members.
cleaning the beach daily. Betty Lietner and Eric
Weber. fellow Beach Angels report that the
organization also meets as a group the third
Tuesday monthly at the Pompano Beach
Recreational Center. Carrying a plastic trash bag
is almost second nature to the Beach Angels
when they walk the beaches near their homes.
Other Pompano residents and businesses are
following the "Angels" lead and organizing a
community-wide clean-up and beautification
program. Launched in March. Chairman George
Guest of the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of
Commerce's "Pompano Proud Campaign"
observes that the program would be a three year


COASTAL

SEAWALL

and

MARINE


project. Within the waterfront community the
Pompano Proud Campaign has already
percipitated the cleanup of the Calaban Canal and
Guest pointed to the Beach Angels as an example
of the neighborhood involvement and attitudes
his project hopes to foster throughout Pompano
Beach.
The Rotary Club has planted sea oats and palm
trees along the beach at 18th Street. The "Bearded
Clams" organization. who built a beachfront
playground just south of the Pompano Pier a year
ago. is helping to coordinate element of
campaign. Businesses like the "Breakers" are
sprucing up their facilities to compliment
Pompano Proud.
To get involved with the Pompano Proud
Campaign call the chamber at 941-2940 or Mr.
Guest at 943-9537. The "Beach Angels" can be
written to at P.O. Box #2755. Pompano Beach. FL

Vigoriorix.
As part of Broward County's 5-phase
development program. North Beach Park could
one day feature a marina for canoes and boats
along with dockage space for houseboats on a
year-round basis. No timetable has been set. but
development is expected to begin within four
years.
Potentially. the expansion of West Lake and
North Beach could culminate in a playground for
boaters. The marina, situated on the north finger
on the west side of the Intracoastal Waterway.
would enable boaters to sail easily between the
two parks.
Mitigation construction at West Lake is about
to get under way. Two hundreds acres of non-
native Australian pine trees will be removed.
allowing the indigenous mangroves to regrow.
New channels will also be dug. old channels
widened and riprap installed to deter erosion. The
Broward Parks and Recreation Department is in
charge of the project:
"We don't want to focus on management
policies." said Gil MacAdam. project coordinator
for Broward County Parks and Recreation
Division.
MacAdam makes reference to the racoons, fox.
monkeys and wading birds living in the woods of
West Lake as reason to maintain a natural
preserve.
"1he idea is to promote an environment
suitable for plant life and animal life. West Lake
will be the largest urban park in the state of
Florida." said MacAdam.
Long ter plans for the park callfor of a nature
center, an outdoor classroom and aboardwalk
with an observation tower, scheduled for
completion within the next five vears. In the
meantime, boaters can have access to the lake
via the ramp at Holland Park, located at the south
end of West Lake.
Eventually,with the final expectations of West
Lake and North Beach realized, boaters will have
the advantage of a local marina and beach
coupled with a native sanctuary right next door.

Hurricane Plans Questioned
by M.G. Swift


Towboat operator, "Red" Koch. knows south
Florida's waterways better than most and he sees
a potential disaster in Broward County's
Hurricane Emergency Flotilla and Evacuation
plans (see Captain Koch's letter to the editor,
paqe three, Juiy 15-August 15, 1986, Waterfront
News). "The way I understood the plan, the
bridges are locked in the down-position 3.5 hours"
after coastal evacuation order is issued by the
county administrator. "I'm worried that incoming
boaters may not be aware of this and potential
marine tragedies may result because of the
waterway closure," writes Koch.
In his years on the river. Capt. Koch has
witnessed Broward County's Flotilla plan at work
in brushes with weather emergencies and doesn't
like what he sees. Too many boats competing for
too few dock spaces up the New River (see "The
Flotilla Plan: Fact & Fiction," page 5, July 15-
August 15, 1985; and "Safe Harbors", page 15,
June 15-July 15, 1986, Waterfront News), Red has
had to sort out several "log jams" on the south
fork with his towboat Hero and these were light
weight storms, reflects the captain, consider if it
was the real thing. Boats would choke off the
river well before the bridges do it.
Koch has aired his opinions with Flo Mocg,
education coordinator of the Emergency
Preparedness Division of Broward County. At
meetings of the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber
of Commerce Marine Task Force, Fort Lauderdale
Waterfront Property Owners and the City of Fort
Lauderdale's Marine Advisory Board presented
his observations and misgivenings, and suggested
what measures the waterfront community could
take to lessen chaos on the river in a
hurricane emergency.
The captain and his towing colleague Captain
Ellis Hodgkins of Cape Ann Towing have


Monitor 13 & 23 During
Hurricane Emergency
In the event of a hurricane emergency, boaters
should be reminded to monitor VHF Channels 13
and 23 for advisories as to the status of the
bridges (13). and the waterways (23--United
States Coast Guard).
Mariners should be aware of the County's
flotilla plan and cognizant that the bridges will be
closed in the down position 3 1/2 hours after the
official order to evacuate the coastal areas by the
County Administrator. New River will effectively
be closed to larger boat traffic.
K5fefw *=wa "w r "y- r- si ine ": aSa g^
suggested to these marine groups that signs be
constructed say on the spoil "island" at the
confluence of New River and the Intracoastal
Waterway advising mariners of the waterway
closure procedures,hurricane flotilla plan and to
contact the U.S. Coast Guard on V.H.F. channel
sixteen for more information (channel 13 for
drawbridge status).
Emergency Preparedness' Flo Mocg has
indicated support for Koch's ideas but advised
the captain to find industry and community
support and funding for his signage. To date Koch
has not received financial help. however the
Marine Task Force sent a public service
announcement out to all local media asking them
to remind their boating readers, listeners and
viewers to monitor VHF Channels 13 & 2: in the
event of a hurricane emergency and to be aware
of the fact that large boat traffic will be effectively
shut down.
Editor's Note:
As a result of Red Koch:s efforts the Fort
lauderdale Marine Advisory Board is
reexamining the citys hurricane emergency
plans. Ihe Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Property
SOwners Association formed a "Hurricane Flotilla"
Committee after Koch spoke before the


Hurricane Flotilla Plan
Listed below is the Broward Sheriff's
Proclamation for the 1986 Hurricane Emergency
Marine Traffic Broward County Flotilla Plan, IN
1HF FVFNT of a hurricane emergency the
Broward County Sheriffs Office will coordinate
the efforts of all municipal Marine Units in the
movement of marine traffic throughout the
waterways in Broward County. 1 his coordination
will commence at the beginning of a Hurricane
Watch and terminate three and a half (3 1/2)
hours after the official order to evacuate the
coastal areas by the County Administrator
10 MINIMIZE the number of bridge openings
necessary to accommodate marine 'traffic
tiavelinm on Broward County waterways seeking
sale harbor. the following will apply'
1 Should boat traffic increase to a level
e(ulrrinq. excessive bridge openings. a flotilla
movement program will be implemented No
specific time sequences will be utilized in moving
Ilotillas hut movement will be governed by the
number of boats seeking to proceed upriver
Small boats able to proeed without bride
openings need not wait for a flotilla.
2 1he Fort Lauderdale Police Departments
Marine Patrol will be deployed in the Intracoastal
Waleiwav north and south of the New River to
supervise 'and assist formation of Hlotillas.
Vessels proceedtna north to the New River wilt
o0 m ilotillas in the Pier 66 area and vessels
pioreediln south of the New River will form
flotillas in the Bahia Mar ar~ea. As the situation
dictates Fort Lauderdale Police Boats will escort
flotillas inland or send them independent'v in
or OuLps

organization in July. Kay Pearson of Yachting
Promotions has pledged S1000 towards his
project. John Grady of Grady Marine Construction
has promised assistance in the installation of any
waterway singnage and Van Snyder with the
Marine Industry's Association of South Florida
indicated his personal support and would
recommend to the MIA-SF executive board that
the local trade group do likewise.

Raft Race Safety
by Bill Lange
Rafts are thrill conveyances so they may
sometimes be fun but there is also danger
Supposedly waterborne-but don t count on that
since-more often a raft is hardly more than
flotsam. Then only in extremes useful to humans
who have no better at hand. Throughout
hundreds of years various types of rafts have
been a means of certain transport even before
recorded history. Maybe there were marine
design architects because some of the
contraptions held together but there is little I
can say favorably about their safety.
Now comes the 1986 New River Raft Race and
,raft designs with the prizes going to novelty
rather than to utility which has been the goal of
the Incas. the Egyptians. the Polynesians.
Canadian woodsmen. Huckleberry Finn. Devil's
Island escapees, tourist guides in Jamacia or
Montana/Wyoming. and the manufacturers of
inflatable life-saving devices for aircraft and
vessels.
Look at how important safety is to that last
category yet the most careful design remains
easily liable to capsize. collapse. and sinking
Using a raft those on it (hardly "aboard") are
closer to the problem of survival than to:the
niceties of safety. But a considerable part of
survival is the safety sense of a firm and capable
captain. The captain must reduce the hazards of
the funfest. afloat, awash. or foundered. by
cheerful and sensible communications. Read that
as "orders".
So. whether you are a Raft Race sponsor.
designer. skipper or crew lets check a few-angles.
Yes. there should be a skipper or coxswain
without a peer. Organization is not going to spoil
the fun, and a functional.establishment is part of
the way to winning. There is more funif the crew
knbws what to expect, and does the right thing
whichever way the cookie crumbles. Brief them.
train them for every contingency.
You as organizer/skipper are responsible for
the safety of your floaters, and not to endanger
others. Your rig is a marine vessel and subject to
certain laws and nautical rulings. Understand
the implications ofyouragreement;to participate
How about the number and physical capability

Scope with adversity? ,.

tourniquets, about head bandages, about "the

Waterfront Performing Art's Center Mel Fisher Calls It Quits
by Craig Lustgarten _For Treasure Salvers
by Craig Lustgarten i rr.h


Fort Lauderdale The construction of a $38.5
million Performing Arts Center on the North band
of the New River promises to be the mainstay of
the Riverwalk project.
Expected to open in the fall of 1989, the
Performing Arts Center (PAC) will offer a variety
of cultural and entertainment events including
Broadway musicals and plays, dance troups,
drama, symphonic concerts and opera, jazz, film
series, lectures, pop concerts, comedy, and
children's theatre.
The 167,000 square footfacility will have a2725
seat main theatre, a more intimate 575 seat
theatre, and a community hall for public
functions and rehearsals.
To bring this project to fruition, a Performing
Arts Center Authority (PACA) was established by
the Florida Legislature, which is coordinating the
center's planning and development with the City
of Fort Lauderdale and the Downtown
Development Authority. The facility will anchor
one of three Riverwalk districts when completed.
The Performing Art's Center's executive
director, Sid McQueen, related that the PAC is
presently in the design-development stage which
will continue until the third week in September. At
that time final blueprints will have been
completed and presented by the architects. See
artist's. rendition of a waterfront view of PAC
above.
Working on the project is the architectural firm
of Benjamin Thompson and Associates out of
Massachusetts, known for the design of similar
waterfront revitalization projects such as the
Ordway Music Theatre in St. Paul, Minnesota, and
the Fulton Market on the South Street Seaport in
New York.
The PACA has also hired association R.
Lawrence Kirkegaard and Associates out of
Chicago to ensure that the center
provides the finest quality of sound, and Jules
Fisher Associates will also be working on the
acoustics along with the site lines to the stage,
and the total production capabilities of the
theatre.
"We're designing a building that will meet the
technical needs of all the arts organization and
that will provide first-class acoustics for all the
musical groups," said McQueen. He added the
goal is to provide the best seating and sound in
the area.
The Paca's executive director described the
time table that has been set up for. the building
process: "After design-development is finished in
September, the project will go into the
construction/documents drawings phase for 25
weeks, then there will be an 8-week bidding
period and five weeks of evaluation, followed by
the groundbreaking ceremonies and27 months of
construction."
McQueen emphasized the creativity of the
design team, which will utilize their expertise to
mold the building to the waterfront and the
surrounding environment.
One of the most interesting aesthetics to be
incorporated into the building will be its.glass
exterior. McQueen illuminated, "One of the things
we're trying to develop is the interplay off the
rflection of the glass, which will create a feel for
the environment and thus capture the essence of
what is South Florida."
The:ambiance of the New River will come alive
as people traversing the river will see the
sparkling structure with the crowds inside.


Similarly, spectators in the lobby of the building,
some of whom will be 30 to 40 feet in the air, will
have a splendid view down the river.
Members of the PACA are confident that the
Center will be a major signature building along
Riverwalk and in Fort Lauderdale that will attract
people from all over the tri-county area, and thus
make it "a cultural hub of South Florida."
McQueen added, "It will be quite something to
have this kind of site, so close to the downtown,
and the river thai will attract some of the best
national and international touring products as
well as being home to Broward County's major
arts organizations."
To finance the Center's construction, the PACA
has attained a commitment of $20 million from
the State, County, and local governments. In
order to release the State's $5 million, the PACA
must raise $10 million from private sources by
January of 1988.
To accomplish that feat, members of the
Broward Performing Arts Foundation along with
the "Friends of the Center" groups- known as the
PACERS and IMPACT- are combining their
efforts to raise the necessary funds.
The Broward Performing Arts Foundation with
its 28 members are looking for substantial
contributions from businesses, corporations, and
individuals in. excess of $10,000. IMPACT
(Interested Members of The Performing .Arts
Center) consists of young professionals who will
be .putting. on special events and projects
throughout the.community during the coming
months.
The Performing Arts Center's publicity director
Joy Bedick declared, "We're definitely looking for
people to get involved who want to make the
Performing Arts Center a reality."
Editor's Note:
S3.5 million has been donated toward the S38.5
million performing art center recently by real
estate developer August Urbanek. Urbanek's gift
is contingent on the Performing Arts Center
Authority building an entrance to the theatre from
Broward Boulevard and providing an enclosed
canopy that would offer a view of the New River.
The authority has already received commitments
-of S20 million in $5 million increments each for the
City of Fort Lauderdale. Broward County and the
Florida State legislature. with the Downtown
Development Authority giving S5 million in land.

Titan was, in fact, the only boat to cross the line
out of a race field of seven which included the son

green light from the Broward County Commission
and judicial concurrence that the area is, if not a-
slum, "blighted."
There is small doubt that the County
Commission would deny its consent if all else
were shipshape.
If, however, the City of Fort Lauderdale had to
invoke its power of eminent domain to acquire
needed properties and its claim or claims were on
uncertain grounds -- that is, that the statutory
requirements for 'condemnation were
questionable or not applicable -- the city's court
contest would be lost and so would important
segments of the redevelopment plan.
Sasaki Associates, the Boston-based urban
planning firm retained by the city to prepare the
redevelopment plan, offers studies bythree of its
consultants in a recently published 107-page
"Technical Memorandum -- Existing Conditions
and Trends" that comment on present physical
and economic characteristics of the beach area,
its potentials for major revamping, and the legal
hurdles that need to be overcome.
The lengthy Memorandum takes numerous
other matters into consideration, among them the
number, kind and potentials for expansion of
marine and public facilities, transportation and
parking, traffic and pedestrian circulation, and.
mass transit -- plus such things as recreational
entertainment and cultural activities, an incisive
economic survey, and the role of various
regulatory agencies in evaluating and agreeing to
the redevelopment.
Among the more interesting, proposals are
those for an aquarium, a commodious dinner.
theater, and amphitheater, a history and science
museum and an IMAX movie theater featuring an
oversize concave screen with a 70mm projector
that can show special films-such as the history of
flight; the space shuttle and other educational
features -- with as many as eight to nine films a
year capable of attracting nearly 500,000 patrons.
The Memorandum also offers a profile of
Broward's tourists.
The size and scope of the projected
redevelopment are, to say the least, enormous --
as any reading of the Technical Memorandum
makes plain. But the barriers that stand in the
way of implementing and realizing parts of the
plan -- if not alluded to the Memorandum -- are
monumental, nevertheless.
Indications of the barriers facing the city are in
a study entitled "The Legal Parameters of
Redevelopment" prepared by Sasaki's law
consultant, Charles I. Siemon of Siemon, Larsen
& Purdy. An example of these barriers may be
seen in a section dealing with "the demolition and
redevelopment of those lands lying between Las
Olas Boulevard-and Cortez Street." Noting that
there are several ways in which the
redevelopment can\be, carried out, the Siemon
study states that one could be by "a joint
public/private development." Another "more
traditional approach," the study continues,
"would be by the acquisition of the area for
redevelopment purposes; however, it may be that
the current owners of parcels of land in the
redevelopment area may be unwilling to sell and
therefore the city may have to resort to the power
of eminent domain."
The study goes on to describe how the city
could use its eminent domain (condemnation)
powers. Ten uses or purposes are listed for the
exercise of this power by a municipality. Citing a
relevant Florida Statue, the study asserts that the
law virtually mandates the redevelopment of
blighted and slum areas if such an action "serves
a public purpose."
Two factors loom as serious impediments to
such a course, although the conclusions of the
Sasaki Memorandum gloss over them. One is the
memo's clear failure to identify the two-mile long
central beach area, or any single part of it, as
either a slum or blighted. The second is that the
city's power of eminent domain, cannot be
exercised if the beneficiary is to be a private


interest, as for example a hotel or any other kind
of commercial enterprise. This latter factor is
acknowledged in the Memorandum. The
attraction of major private builders to develop a
number of first class hotels comparable to the
existing Marriot Harbor Beach Resort is a prime
consideration of the planners and the City of Fort
Lauderdale.
With respect to the area's being a slum or
blighted and therefore ripe for eminent domain
proceedings, the tech memo's opening pages
suggest nothing of the kind. Noting that "field
surveys were conducted during February and
March 1986, the Memo defines and describes the
conditions and soundness of buildings with
attention to such factors as structural integrity ,
maintenance and deterioration. Its wrap-up on its
survey is as follows:
"In general, building conditions on the
Intracoastal or western edge of the beach project
area are in standard-sound condition. This is in
part due to the less severe exposure to the
elements and some newer (building)
developments. Also, areas near existing
residential parcels appear to be in standard-
sound condition. Likewise, areas containing
apartment-hotels (that) market (cater) to a
middle to upper-middle-class clientel are in this
category. A large number of these parcels are
found in the northern limits of the project area
between Grenada and Vistamar Streets. Most of
the larger corporate-image hotels fall in this
category, as do high-rise condominium
developments. The majority of these facilities
seem to cater to a more stable year-round
market.
"Areas of standard-minor deterioration
conditions are generally more centralized in the
project area. Several buildings appear to be in the
process of upgrading, presumably for this year's
(spring break) onslaught. Patterns of buildings in
this condition appear to be clustered together.
This could be due to contiguous ownership or
.simply neighboring. ownerships following a
pattern of each other. Rusting and a poor painting
program is prevalentin this category and with
many of these ownerships this is a continuous
problem.
"Areas of sub-standard major deterioration are
primarily in the area of greatest concentration.
The adjacent areas of standard-minor
deterioration also contain a number of pre-1941
buildings. In the outlying parcels, the majority of
these structures are historically residential in
nature and wood-frame in construction. The
greatest concentration of these buildings is
located in the areas between Las Olas Boulevard
and Cortez Street. This area has a large number of
bars, night-spots and a considerable number of

tourist shops (tee-shirts and film) with an
apparent high turnover rate in leases. Very few
structures in this category are hotel/motel
facilities but structures do appear to cater to the
spring break associated market. Several
buildings with ocean frontage have begun a
facade improvement program; however,
construction techniques and materials being
utilized for these apparent interim improvements
are neither appropriate for beach construction
and may not conform to standard construction
practice. In addition to general building
conditions, Sasaki has included the location of
those structures built up to and including 1940."
The field survey and inventory were conducted
by city volunteers under direction of Assistant
City Manager Laura Ward. Sasaki notes that the
"survey will be useful in considering adaptive
reuse opportunities within the study area." One
would assume from this that the buildings of the
pre-1941 era are sound enough to be considered
for "adaptive reuse."
Withall, by its own report, there is no indication
by Sasaki of a slum condition or of appreciable
blight. Not withstanding, Sasaki's legal
consultant states in the last part of the 107-page
Memorandum that"a substantial justification for
a determination of blight exists for the beach area
particularly in the context of the (Florida)
Supreme Court's gloss on the statute (involved) in
State v. City of Miami Beach."
"A blighted area," the court ruled, is one where
conditions are not conductive to sound growth
and the public good is impaired by the various
impediments to such growth."
The legal consultant concedes, however, that
"In the final analysis, a determination of blight
may be subject to judicial review; however; the
action will be presumed valid and a court is
unlikely to substitute its judgement for that of a
governing body .(read City of Fort Lauderdale)
except where it can be shown that the
predominative objective of an acquisition is to
serve a private objective. As long as the program
is directed at a predominantly public use,the
governing body' decision is entitled to
substantive judicial deference."
Despite this rather shaky reassurance by the
legal consultant, the City of Fort Lauderdale faces
the certain prospect of having to show cause
where almost none exists, namely, that blight
exists. If the city were to fail to make its case, the
court would certainly not exercise "judicial
deference."

Fishing Tournament In Jeopardy


by Van Snider

The City of Fort Lauder-dale Fishing
Tournament may not continue past September 1,
1986. due to a reduction in the budget the City
provides to the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber
of Commerce to operate the tournament. Tommy'
Mercer, from the Chamber, announced at a
Marine Task Force meeting that funding from the
city has been reduced for the past three years-
from $20,000 to $18,000 to $16,000. This coming
fiscal year. the city has allocated $10,000 for the
tournament on the premise that the marine
industry take up the slack.
The tournament, managed by Betty
Beardemphl, awards those individuals who catch
notable fish in the city by providing the fishermen
and women certificates and trophies and sending
press releases with photos to the appropriate out-
of-town newspapers, etc. From what the
Waterfront News can determine, city officials feel
this mainly benefits the boating/fishing industry.
However, there is a strong sentiment within the
Chamber's Marine Task Force and the MIASF's
Board of Directors that the tournament benefits
tourism to include hotels, restaurants, etc. An.

example if you will- Joe Smith, from Cleveland,
catches a nice sailfish during his vacation in Ft.
Lauderdale. Betty Beardemphl is notified,
photographs Joe on the dock with the sail, his
wife and kids. Betty sends out a press release to
the Cleveland Plain Dealer, it gets printed, and
readers in Cleveland in the middle of January see
Joe having a great old time. Good PR for fishing
and boating? Yes!,Good PR for Fort Lauderdale
and all its related facilities? Yes! We won't be
labor the point.
The fact is that unless fishing and boating
interests take up the difference in the budget(as a
minimum) the program may be dead. Mercer has
provided the Waterfront News a copy of a
"minimum" budget for 1986/87 which shows an
S18.000 level. There is a strong indication that the
Marine Industry Association. of South Florida
may match any funds that individual firms will
contribute for the continuation of the program. If
you believe this program is worth continuing,
that it benefits you ,benefits Ft. Lauderdale. and
you are interested in making a contribution.

This Old Boat
by Ed Wiser E .
This Month: Search & Survey
My Dad once described junk as something you
carefully horde for ten years and then throw
away two days before you need it. He could have
made the same comment about old wooden boats
it seems they are lying around everywhere until
you go looking for one. Then, it's as if some great
flying toredo worm blasts out of the sea to gobble
up every Herreshoff and Alden in South Florida.
For those of you who tuned in late and missed
last month's column, I'm bemoaning the fact that
thus far we have been unable to locate a boat for a
restoration project at The Barnacle, former home
of Commodore Ralph Munroe. This fine old
pioneer style home in Coconut Grove is now a
state historical site dedicated to preserving the
spirit of another era a time when Florida had a
lot of mangroves and no Yankee developers to
destroy them, and when yachties like Munroe
could build their wooden boats of local materials
and sail them on the clear waters of Biscayne
Bay.
Barbara Roberts, curator of The Barnacle, has
been very supportive of the idea of restoring a
.wooden sailboat on the park grounds. We plan to
do most of the work on weekends over a one year
period affording visitors the opportunity to
become acquainted with these old boats and how
they were built. So far though, we've been unable
to find the right boat. It looked like we had an old
Herreschoff daysailer but the Key West Historical
Society got to it 24 hours before we did.
Still, the search goes on aided by several folks
around town who have been a real big help as
well as a source of information. Special thanks to
Bob Ross of Seafarer Yacht Brokerage in Fort
Lauderdale and to Joe Killian of Art Holler Yacht
Brokerage in Deerfield. As most of you know,
yacht brokers try to steer clear of old wooden
boats the way sailors try to avoid marriage. But
both these guys have taken time to locate
possible candidates and- their- interest and
enthusiasm is appreciated. Bob recently showed
me an old Folkboat he has down at Riverbend
Marina. Vintage 1962, she is a real beauty with
classic lines and a gracefully curved shear. If
anyone out there is looking for a fine little yacht
at a very affordable price you should give Bob a
call. (Maybe I should bill him for including that
last sentence.) We had to turn down the Folkboat
for several reasons, namely, she is foreign built


and we are looking for a native designed and built
S boat, her 4' draft makes beaching and launching
at the Barnacle out of the question., and frankly,
this boat just isn't old enough. So we're still,
looking.
By now you're tired of hearing about the search
and want to read about wooden boat surveys.
We'll it's tough to survey a boat you don't have
yet. But I would like to pass on a bit of wisdom
from local boatwright and author Allen Taube. In
his new book, "The Boatwright's Companion", Al
discusses placing laminated sister ribs adjacent
to cracked or deteriorated frames to strengthen a


hull. He points out that a practice widely accepted
in the past was to butt the sister tightly against
the old frame. Unfortunately, a perfectly smooth
tight fit is not feasible and this area between the
two becomes a collecting point for dirt, moisture,
and eventually rot. Al recommends leaving a gap
of several inches between old wood and new to
permit sealing, painting, cleaning, and good
ventilation. His book contains step-by-step
instructions for many boatbuilding and repair
tasks. It is a must for every wooden boat
afficienado. Look for a review of it in next
'month's issue.


The Jaycees And The River A Fifty Year Affair


by Patsy West

The Ft. Lauderdale JayCees affair with New
River began back in 1927 when the organization
was young. That year. following the 1926
Hurricane disaster, the Junior Chamber of
Commerce hosted the New River Marathon Swim
as a major event in Ft. Lauderdale's Labor Day
celebration.
Swim races were not uncommon here. as
merchants regularly promoted contests off the
Beach. Two distinctive local areas, the Beach and
the drainage canals of Davie, produced fine
swimmers for.competition races.
The New River Marathon was billed as "the
largest sporting event" in Ft. Lauderdale's
history. Swimmers from Miami, Tampa, Ft.
Pierce, Inverness, Clearwater, and Gainsville
competed with area locals.
The race began Downtown from the Andrews
Bridge. The swimmers started from a wooden
barge positioned on the east side of the Bridge.
Small boats accompanied each swimmer along
the 3 1/2 mile course.
A holiday atmosphere prevailed. The JayCees
had requested that all of the boat owners along.
New River "decorate their individual craft with
pennants, banners, and other emblems" for this
Labor Day festivity.
"Thousands" of spectators gathered at the
beach to witness the conclusion of the Marathon.
This initial JayCees event assured that their 1928
Marathon would be an even greater success.
The 1928 New River Marathon was most
exciting. It was won by a 14 year old boy, Clayton
Mains of Davie, who swam against 15 men.
Mains' time from the Andrews Avenue Bridge to
the Las Olas Casino Pool at the Beach was 1 hour


and 5 minutes. arriving almost 6 minutes ahead of
Second-place winner. Jack Makemson. Alice
Shaw won the women's competition, with Maiy
Taul second. The JayCees hosted a hall at the
Trianon Club where, the competitors received
their cups and trophies.
With the New River Marathon Swim as the
Junior Chamber of Commerce's initial success. it
is little wonder that today they have yet another
successful New River event! Some Fifty years
later. their New River Raft Race. ovei virtually.the
same 3 1/2 mile course grows with enthusiasm
yearly.

Swimmers see: "Swimmers of the 1wenties" by
Susan B. Peterson in the Ft Lauderdale Historical
Society's New River News. Winter. 1985.)
