Columbus Day Regatta
by Jennifer B. Heit
The Columbus Day Regatta, Autumn's brightest
nautical event, marks its 33rd consecutive year
this month as the world's largest cruising boat
On Saturday Oct. 11, 9a.m., racing classes will
cross a starting line in the vicinity of Dinner Key
Channel. The day's race ends near East Feather
Bank, resumes on Sunday and continues to the
official end when boaters reach the original
starting point back at Dinner Key Channel. A
special trophy presentation will take place Oct. 18
at the Coral Reef Yacht Club.
Entries are limited to 750 with a $30 entrance
fee for yachts registering before September 28th.
An extra $20 is required from entries postmarked
or delivered after that date until the Oct. 4
During the past several years the Regatta has
been critized for its reckless nature, prompting
race officials to declare a crackdown.
"We only want to make sure that in the future
this event doesn't get stopped because of an
accident or injury," said Regatta chairman
Frederick Preston. "The Marine Patrol and park
rangers were really upset by some of the things,
they saw last year -- rightfully so."
Some of the things include a man who was
seriously injured when he fell off his own slow-
moving boat and an 18-month old child hurt by a
water balloon that hit him in the face.
Chairman Preston vows that anyone seen
throwing water balloons can forget about ever
being in the Regatta again.
In addition, a $50 citation will be issued to
violators breaking speed and water-balloon
To insure lawful conduct, a marked anchorage
at the raftup sight off Elliott Key will be policed by
park ranger and marine patrol boats. Two Dade
County paramedics and a doctor who specializes
in trauma surgery will also be available at the
Race officials say they are aiming for a fun, yet
safe family event.

SVolume 3 Issue 7 October 1986 Waterfront News
Over the past several years, I have been
concerned about the overgrowth of trees along
our canals. These trees grow out from the
seawalls and block more than half of the
available space. This makes navigation blind
spots, which are extremely dangerous. These
areas are also home base for alligators. I've seen
people walk in the canals at low tide and they are
unaware the gators lurk here.
The canals should be dredged so there is more
room for boats. This would make it deeper for
boat motors to prevent scraping or breaking the
motor. Boat safety under the bridges would also
benefit from this. For example, when I make my
way to a bridge on Oakland Park, I have to swing
all the way into shallow water because of these
The silt has filled up the channels of the canals
and boats, fish, gators, and manatee compete for
space. Who is to keep the canals in good
condition? Is it the Army Corp of Engineers, the
Community or the property owner? Can.we have
something done about this?
The city of Oakland Park has jurisdiction over
the Fork of the Middle River that Mr. Karaitis
refers to in his letter. Harry Wimberly, director of
public service for that Broward County
municipality, indicates that the overgrowth can
be trimmed back if it is obstructing the channel's
right-of-way and if it is not mangrove. Mangrove
may not be disturbed. Mr. Wimberly urges Mr.
Karaitis to contact his office at 561-6280 and an
inspection of the waterway will be arranged.
Please accept this small token of our
appreciation of the outstanding contribution by
Waterfront; News in support'of our efforts to
* educate and inform the boaters of Broward
County for the 1986 hurricane season.
Without your dedicated support, we could not
begin to hope to reach the community with this
i vital information.
My sincere thanks for all your help.

I write to bring to your attention an issue of
great concern, specifically to the Miami marine
community, and generally to all of us who live in
this area. At stake is the survival of Biscayne
Bay's only full service boatyard/marina, Merrill-
Stevens Dry Dock Company, in Coconut Grove,
situated on prime waterfront property leased
from the City of Miami. The lease has expired and
the City if exploring other uses for the land to
produce higher revenues. Merrill-Stevens has
been advised that it will be dispossessed with 90
days notice when the City determines the future
disposition of this site. It is imperative that the
marine community voice its conviction that a full
service marina/boatyard in the Dinner Key area
is central to the ambience and quality of life
which makes Miami and Coconut Grove unique.

Ask Big Al
I have electric fuel pumps on my engines. Never
have trouble with my port engine. Runs swell. The
starboard runs ok, until the engine gets hot, then
quits. I've replaced the pump and have noticed the
pump gets real hot before it stops. What's
happening to cause pumps to get hot and fuel to
stop pumping then?
: Usually 'a bad or clogged filter will stop fuel
frtm: reaching the pump and a dry pump will
overheat and stop Fuel going through the'pump
Helps cool it. Placement of the pump is critical.
The best place.is near the fuel tank and not on the
engine as a hot engine or exhaust manifold will
give you vapor lock or boil the gas at.the pump. I
would check the fuel filters and pump for grounds
and proximity to heat.
My boats moving along fine. Suddenly, my
engine speeds up but my boat doesn't. I throttle
down and start again. Everything isfine again.
Maybe an' hour or two later I may have the same
thing all over again. Al, what's happening?
I would bring my prop in and.have it re-hubbed.

about $500 rather than "$60,000 minimum"

the engine on my I/O cut out completely. I had

Yes, you can hot wire your boat engine if the
coil, condensor and points are ok. If the, key
switch is gone or console board or fuse block is
blown, a hot lead from the battery or solinoid to
the resistor or coil will work: Make sure you use
the "plus" (+) side of the battery or the lead in on
the coil or resistor block. Two clips with a wire in
between are all, that you need. Activate the
solinoid with a screw driver or wire to spin the,
starter with wire and clips attached. To stop the
engine disconnect at the hot-end and repair that

Riverwalk, Beach And Swimming Hall On Bond Issue
FORT LAUDERDALE -- Citizens for a Greater Fort
Lauderdale kicked off their campaign to garner
support for the City's November 4 general
obligation bonds with a rally and news
conference at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, November
18 at the Museum of Art.
Congressman E. Clay Shaw, Co-Chairman of
Citizens for a Greater Fort Lauderdale,
emphasized the importanceto all Fort Lauderdale
residents of passing the bond issues, in a speech
via satellite from Washington, D.C.
"These bond issues give us the opportunity to
channel outr growth to a quality of life that will
make us unique among cities," says Shaw.
In May of this year the City Commission
appointed a 15 member citizens committee to
advise them on projects to be included in a
General Obligation Bond package to be presented
to the elecorate in November. In arriving at their
recommendations, the Committee was guided in
large part by the City's Mission Statement and
our goal of becoming the best City of our size in
America. Parameters were established early on
to ensure that all projects:
were capital improvements that exceeded
$100,000 in cost;
would promote community pride;
have economic value and/or impact;
would improve the a quality of life in Fort
would have City-wide impact;
would have aesthetic value; and
would not cause overlap and redundancy
with other governmental entities.
In addition, the Committee gave consideration
to the operational cost and impact of each
project. Questions'which continuously emerged

and eventually became standard included:
Why should this project be done with
Is this project appropriate for a bond issue or
should it be funded from general revenue?
Can the private sector fund or assist in this
Can other governmental entities fund or
assist in this project?
The Committee consistently expressed concern
that projects proposed for inclusion not include
any items which could be cosntrued as operation.
The City Commission accepted the Committee's
recommendations and made only one change in
the proposed bond package. They areed to place
the bond issue proposal on the ballot in the
November 4, 1986 general election. While the
Committee hoped that the entire list of projects
could be placed before the voters as a single
entity, the City has.been advised by bond counsel
that the projects must be broken down into six
categories in order to comply with statutory
requirements. The categories are: Parks &
Recreation, Riverwalk, Neighborhood and the
Discovery Center for Science and Technology.
Intercoastal Back To Normal Speed, For Now
by Rachel Leach
If you were confused about the "No-Wake" zone
north of Hillsboro Inlet this summer, you were not
alone. Many boaters wondered where the eight
mysterious "No-Wake" signs came from and -if
they were enforceable. One June 6, Sheriff Nick
Navarro took it upon himself to erect the signs
without the approval of the appropriate
authorities; namely the state Department of
Natural Resources, the U.S. Coast Guard and the
Broward County Commission. Although the
County Commission has applied to the DNR for
the no-wake zone, the final decision is still
pending. The signs were not legal without the
approval of the State Cabinet. It is expected that
the proposal will go before the Senate sometime
in late September.
The DNR recently conducted a survey that
revealed 18 boating accidents occurring from
April 1983 to April 1986. But instead of providing a
solution to these maritime mishaps, the
unauthorized signs created yet another problem.
Since police officers weren't enforcing the signs
in question, boaters weren't sure where the
restricted zone ended and the unrestricted zone
began. Therefore, boaters sped past genuine
no-wake signs mistaking them for the
Lighthouse Point Mayor Albert E. Fletcher, Jr.
disagreed with the Sheriff's decision to install the
signs. Fletcher and the Florida Marine Patrol
requested Sheriff Navarro to order the removal of
the signs and on Friday, August 8, their requests
were granted. All eight of the unauthorized signs
are gone. So if you see a "No-Wake" sign
anywhere, it's the real McCoy and it would be in
your best interest to obey it. Until the state
Department of Natural Resources and the Coast
Guard approve the restricted zone, that stretch of
intercoastal from. Hillsborough Inlet north to
Deerfield will be unrestricted.

Hotel & Apartment Complex
Proposed For Sailboat Bend
FORT LAUDERDALE- Hailed as a major
component of the Riverwalk plan, developers last
month proposed their intention to build a luxury
hotel and twenty-story apartment complex on the
south bank of the New River across from the
planned Performing Arts Center and Chinnock
Marine's boat yard. The projected construction
site is 1.2 acres at Sailboat Bend, just east of the
Seventh Avenue Bridge.
The $25 million waterfront project would offer
Fort Lauderdale's downtown its first
highrise apartment. There have been no major
downtown housing developments built in twenty
years, according to city officials.
The complex will face the Performing Arts
Center. Developers say the hotel will complement
the arts center by housing its visitors and touring
performers, shuttling them by water taxis back
and forth across the New River.
A twenty-story, sixty-unit apartment tower; an
eight-story, twenty-eight-unit apartment
building; and a ten-story, one hundred and
twenty-two-room hotel would make up the
proposed Riverwalk project. Plans also call for an
outside riverfront cafe, glass walls at the lobby
level, and a restaurant and bar overlooking the
Others have proposed a "marine village" for the
site, however, they lacked the financial backing
and detailed plans put forward by the developers
of the hotel/apartment complex. And though the
city had incorporated a "marine shopping village"
in their Riverwalk plans, city planners seem very
receptive to the hotel idea. As Chuck Ritchie, Ft.
Lauderdale city Planning Director, put it, "We've
been waiting a long time for this!"
Boca Beach Battle
by Craig Lustgarten
The City of Boca Raton's plan to renourish its
badly eroding coastline is being thwarted by the
Department of Environmental Regulation's (DER)
refusal to issue the required construction permit
for the project.
The reasons behind the DER's refusal to issue
the permit for the renourishment project,
according to Debra Getzoof, Deputy General
Counsel for the regulatory agency, are "site
specific concerns about the biological resources
in that area and the appropriateness of that
location for beach nourishment given the
resources that would be destroyed by the
Getzoff continued, "We (DER) don't believe the
erosion in the area is severe enough to warrant
this type of project, and to the best of our
knowledge that was never a very wide beach at
An administrative hearing on the matter is set
for September 30, in Boca Raton, at which time
attornies for both sides will have a complete
opportunity to present their respective cases
before a hearing officer, who will then file his
recommendations with the Secretary of the DER.
The DER Secretary then has 45 days to make final
judgement on the project.
SAn interesting twist to the whole issue is an
attempt by the Florida Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) to intervene on Boca Raton's
Behalf. A key witness for the City from the DNR is
scheduled to testify at the upcoming hearing.
So, in this dispute, the forces, that are pushing
for the project's go ahead include the DNR, the
Board of Trustees of the Internal Improvement
Trust Fund (represented by Governor Graham and
Cabinet members), and of course, the City of Boca
Those forces opposing the project include the
DER, the Audubon Society of the Everglades, Inc.,
and another environmental group called SAVE
(Save and Protect our Aquatic Resources and
The City of Boca Raton wants to restore the
beach baseline back to its former condition in the
year 1929, which will help provide Route A1A with
increased protection from storms and will
replenish the eroding shorelines of Spanish River
and Red Reef Parks.
Rick Spadoni, a coastal engineer for the City of
Boca Raton, discussed the nature of Boca's
erosion problem. He related that the City has lost
a half-million cubic yards of sand over the past 11
years, which has resulted in the narrowing of the
beach and the front part of its sand dunes.
As part of their plan to restore the beach to its
former state, Boca's engineers have found a
deposit of sand offshore that matches the grains
currently found on the 1.6 mile shoreline and
which therefore could be utilized for the
replenishing process of a number of times.
Spadoni relates that the City of Boca is
confident that it will win its battle to go ahead
with the renourishment project and that perhaps
a settlement can be reached in the matter before
the administrative hearing takes place.
"Based on the other two erosion cases (Key
Biscayne and Captiva Island), our arguments are
even stronger than those of the pro-restoration
factions in those cases, and I expect we will also
win," declared Spadoni.

'NEW' outdoor cleaning
power for boats and
around the home.
Not so long ago we used a brush and dust pan to clean
around the house. Nowadays the vacuum cleaner is
taken for granted. In the same way, the new KEW-
Hobby power washer will tackle all of those outside
cleaning jobs you now do with a hose only much
more effectively! Use it to clean your car (yes, even
under the wheel arches and in the engine
compartment). Blast away the muck and prevent rust
forming on garden furniture, tools and mowers. Clean
the drains and gutters like they've never been
cleaned before. Knock spots off the moss that gathers
on walls and doors. Clean the bike, or motorbike (or if
you're lucky, the boat and the pool!) You can even fit
a rotary brush to give things a real scrub down or a
wet sandblaster to clean metalwork to remove rust.
Then there's the chemical injector for mixing car
shampoo into the powerful jet. We could go on, but it
would be better if you sent for our colour brochure
now to find out what a great D.I.Y. cleaning tool the
KEW-Hobby really is.

The Women's Yacht Racing Association of
Miami will again sponsor a women's race week to
be held January 10 14, 1987 at Coral Reef Yacht
Club in Miami on Biscayne Bay.
This year's race week will be structured as a
tune-up regatta designed for women strongly
motivated to improve their racing and their
ability to work together as a team perhaps in
preparation for the Adam's Cup or the Second
International Women's Keelboat Championship.
While not necessary, groups are encouraged to
come together as a crew and work as a team.
Hillsboro Inlet Sailing Club (HISC) completed
it's five race 1986 Summer Series on August 24.
The series began in late July, with five race on
five consecutive weekends. The summer series is
one of five race series conducted year-round by
HISC. Intended to be a fun series, in addition to the
normal round the buoys races, the summer series
includes a singlehanded race and a couples race.
This year the club added a twilight race to their
summer series. The twilight race was run on a
Saturday evening, with the course length
adjusted so that the yachts would finish at dusk.
Turnout for the series was good for this
typically light-air series. Competition was
conducted in two classes, PHRF and a club-
handicapped Performance Class. In total, ten
yachts competed for the PHRF awards, and 17
boats participated in the Performance Fleet. In
addition to the series trophies for first, second,
and third place in each Class, individual trophies
were awarded for the first three boats in each
class for the singlehanded and couples races.
The HISC racers are now competing their 1986

You & Your Boat Show Exhibit
by David Matteson
You've just spent a relative bundle to reserve
space in a local upcoming boat show and now
you're suffering more than a little bit of buyer's
remorse. Take heart. Your decision to buy the
space was probably the best advertising decision
you've made in a long time.
Trade Shows are the fastest growing sales
medium in the world, For good reason. Only the
strength of television, with its ability to reach
vast audiences at the same time, can claim a
position stronger than the trade show market.
The television position is based on dollars for
sales to general audiences. For industry to
industry sales, trade shows are matched by no
Sales at trade shows are faster and less costly
than anywhere else. Today, the average
industrial sales call costs S205 to close, while to
close a sale at the show costs only a fraction, or
about S90. These are the latest figures from the
Trade Show Bureau.
It might be of interest to note that the Bureau
also reports the trade show industry as a fifteen
billion dollar industry annually. Approximately
half the amount spent on travel, accommodations
and restaurants with the other half spent on
exhibit design, fabrication, shipping, space and

basics on how best to utilize this new mega-
HOW MUCH SPACE DID I NEED?This depended on
what you have to exhibit. Services generally take
less space than products. The most available
booth size is 10'x10'. Consider that it takes 50
square feet for two (2) people to carry on a
conversation. Any less than that and both people
feel crowded and uncomfortable. You and one (1)
prospect take up half of the space in a 10' booth.
Make a layout of the materials you plan to take to
the show. How many square feet is that? How
many square feet do you have left for person to
One salesperson in a 10' booth is good. Two is
pushing it a bit!
If this is your first show and budget is a
consideration why not utilize your own creativity
within some professional boundaries set by your
association. Your association will see to it that
you have at least one company identification sign
with your booth number. Usually one table and
two chairs ar provided along with an electrical
outlet that can handle two 60 watt appliances.
Lighting is extremely important. The more light
you have in your booth the more advantage you
have over competition and the more sales you
will make. Identify yourself with large company
identification headers (signs) that are positioned
above 6'. Primary visual information should
always be above head height. Remember to make

one product, one service or one idea primary. In a
sense, your booth is similar to a bill-board on the
highway. People walking down the isle need to
identify with a primary target. Once this target
gets them to your booth, other devices, such as
additional information, more product display or
salespersons can introduce your full spectrum of
wares. Try never to put obstructions between you
and your prospect. This is the most common
mistake made by small booth exhibitors. The
whole reasoning behind trade shows is to allow
exhibitors to have an office away from home, a
place to meet and discuss business with clients,
old and new. You want your clients in YOUR office
(booth), attentive to your products and services
and not distracted by competitors. Do not put a
table between you and your client. Instead, put
your products against the back wall of your
exhibit space. Force the client into your area.
Position yourself, that when talking, your client
has to look into your booth. Force him to see your
company identification, your company graphics,
your company services and your company
products. Your space is expensive. Utilize it to its
best advantage. Never allow your prospect to
gaze into the isles unless you want to loose his
attention and interest. No product is visual
competition for an isle.! Rememberthat seventeen
(17) percent of the people at shows are shy. Allow
for this by placing your business cards and your
literature close to the isle. This lets the shy person
get to know you through print material rather
than actual physical confrontation. It's politeness
on your part and is appreciated by a large
segment of your buying potential.
Regarding a sales personality for the show.
You can drop everything that you've learned from
most sales training programs. Selling at a boat
show is far different from cold calls, industrial
calls made by appointment and especially
telephone sales calls. The people you meet at
trade shows have spent a lot of money to meet
you. Trade shows are the truest definition of the
buyer wanting to meet the seller. Your client has
spent a bundle on air transportation, ground
transportation, hotel accommodations,
restaurants and registration and a host of
peripherals just to meet you, investigate your
services and study your products. Of course he is
doing the same with your competition. The last
thing this person wants to be confronted with is a
"step-by-step" sales pitch. He probably already
has a good idea of your offerings. He is in a
dynamic mood and wants to make a decision. Be
sincere. Answer his questions with directness
Always be prepared to offer detailed
information when appropriate. During the time
you are with your client, please allow him to
touch and handle your products. Give him as
much "hands-on" as possible. While he is in this
mode, educate him with the advantages and
features of your product. You haven't lost him if
he leaves your booth with, "Thank you, I'll see you
again." He means it. He just wants to check out
the competition and unbeknown to him, he'll
carry the impression you make with him. add itto
what he wants from your product and then make
his final decision. The most important element at
a boat show is the salesperson. Never forget that
and you'll do just fine!
Evaluation could be tough! But not for you. You
remembered to set measureable and reasonable
objectives which you met and hopefully
exceeded. You presented yourself in a neat. well
lighted booth with primary offerings highlighted.
You did'nt push yourself. You got plenty of rest
before the show, only worked the booth while
alert and helpful, and above all kept a sincere
attitude toward all-comers. Successful first-
timers, like yourself always take advantage of
meeting other exhibitors and exchanging
observations. Talk to the exhibitors who did not
do well at the show. Don't just sympathize with
their misfortune, use gut feelings to evaluate why
they did poorly while others were successful.
Spend as much time as possible with the
successful exhibitors. Watch them closely. You
can learn a ton.
Above all remember this. Shows are fun,
although exhausting. Boat Shows can be a shot in
the arm to an otherwise lack lustre year. Also,
your best salesperson can only get to about 17%
of your potential audience. The least successful
show introduces you to 25% of your market that
you've never met.

With Port Commissioner Stan Harris roundly
rejected by Democratic Party voters in his Sept. 2
Primary bid for re-election -- having been
suspended from office nine days earlier by Gov.
Bob Graham following a felony arrest for carrying
a concealed firearm and other weapons charges -
- his seat is being hotly contested in the Sept. 30
run-off by former U.S. Merchant Marine officer
David Block and Democratic Party fund-raiser
Betsy Krant. The winner of the run-off will face
Republican Bob Barber in the Nov. 4 general
election. Barber served as a. Port Commissioner
from 1980 to 1984.
Commission Chairman Mike Marinelli, who
was unapposed in the Primary, will face
Republican Roberta Elder in November. Elder is
an owner with her husband of a port-based
trucking firm an an import company.
The run-off between Block and Krant is
something of a one-sided donnybrook with Block
throwing all punches, while it is a toss-up as to
who is the heavy-hitter -- Krant, for example
for example having spent $14,000 on her initial
Primary race to Block's $900 -- Block has been
flailing away at the lady as unqualified to sit on
the commission. She has not public replied to
nim, nor, for that matter, to Waterfront News
which asked her to comment on Blocks charges.
While he holds it admirable that Krant has a
bachelor's degree cum laude from Harvard-
Radcliffe and a master's degree in education from
Harvard's Graduate School of Education, and
acknowledges her work as the fund-raiser in
Broward for Gov. Bob Graham in his run to unseat
U.S. Sen. Paula Hawkins, he says that "her
qualifications are almost totally unrelated to the
office of Port Commisioner."
He adds that Krant "never attended a Port
Commission workshop, never studied the Port

Charter, never inquired about the master plan for
port expansion, didn't know she was goind to be a
candidate until a few days before qualifying and
refuses to debate me though I gave her the option
of format, (namely) time and place."
"The Port generates $500 million into the
Broward County economy each year," Block
declares. "It's not on the job training we need as a
Krant's reply is that the Port needs policy
makers and that making policy doesn't require
one to know how to dock a ship.
Krant is a member of the Judicial Nominating
Commission for the 17th Circuit (Broward), a
member of the Headmaster's Advisory Board of
Pine Crest School, and Honorary Trustee of the
Museum of Art, was a teacher for six years,
works as business and finance coordinator for
the Krant and Hoffeld medical office, has been
married to Dr. David Krant for the past 21 years an
d is the mother of two teenage daughters.
David Block spent 25 years in the U.S. Merchant
Marine, ultimately attaining the rank of Chief
Purser, has been a port activist for the past four
years, is a member of the Broward AFL-CIO
building trades union, holds a private pilot's and
glider license, and, like Krant, is a member of
Broward's -Democratic Party Executive
Committee. Block is 66. Krant-is 43.
Much depends on the outcome of the
Block/Krant run for the seat formerly held by
Harris, and on November's final face-off for that
seat and the one presently held by Mike Marinelli.
Should Block and Marinelli emerge the victors,
the Port's traditional pro-labor stance is certain
to be maintained. Should both be defeated, the
Port Commission will be, if not hostile to labor,
Krant has not expressed herself on labor
matters and neither Barber nor Elder can be

Should Republicans Barber and Elder win the
two Commission seats -- a not unlikely outcome
considering the strong showing of both in the
Republican Primary the Port Everglades
Authority will be a new fish in the sea, for sure.
Already, there is a new Port Director and, for the
first time, four shipping firms have acquired berth
space in the port even though they will not use ILA

New Port Director, Begins Oct. 15
by Nathan L. Roberts
The man picked by the Port Everglades
Commission to be the port's new director, C.
Thomas Burke of Cleveland, 0., knows that he's
about to step into a very slippery job. The last
man to hold the job was fired nine months ago.
James Conolly was canned because he differed
with the port commission on the issue of a multi-
million dollar bond issue and because
commissioners objected to some of his personal
behavior. There have been other directors whose
tenure was short-lived.
The incoming director is well aware of the Port
Commission's revolving door reputation for
hiring and firing port directors. In his
negotiations for the job, Burke mentioned this to
the commissioners by way of asking and getting
a two-year contract. He didn't get the salary he
requested, $92,000 per annum, but he got very
close to it, the sum of $90,000 or $18,000 more
than he was getting as director of the Port of'
Cleveland. Burke will begin work on October 15.
All told, there were seven finalists out of 60 who
applied. All were screened by Mercer/Slevin, Inc.,
an executive search firm. Of the seven finalists,
three were from Broward County. Two of the Port
Commissioners objected to this line-up,
Commissioner Alan Marks recorded as saying "It
almost seems stacked toward a local
The three Broward finalists were Pompano

Port Director James Phifer, also 50, who was

in for the ousted C-onnolly, and Edward Quigley,
54, who was a director of port operations before
leaving in 1981 as a result of a dispute with the old
Quigley's candidacy drew from some quarters
because of his reputed pro-unionism. He was said
to be a friend of Port Commissioner Walter
Browne, a well-known union leader who
represents organized labor on the commission as
an appointee of the governor. Quigley was also
said to be a friend of Joel Alesi, the port's
operations director who is also a union official.
Quigley replied to all this by saying that
friendships wouldn't cause him to favor unions if
he were named port director.
The out-of-town finalists were Ernest Bauer, a
vice-president of the TRG Group, a Virginia
transportation company, and a former executive
with the Port of New York Authority; Joseph
Gontarski, a member of the Gulf Transportation
Development Company which helps in the
operation of the Port of Tampa, and Martin Pilsch,
Jr., a shipping company manager and former
Massachusetts Port Authority director.
Burke, who was a speechwriter for the late
Vice-President Hubert H. Humphrey, leaves a
$72,000 job as director of the Port of Cleveland. He
has been a port executive in New York and Duluth,
Minn. His selection as Broward's new port
director was opposed by only one commissioner,
Chairman Mike Marinelli, who favored Pompano
Beach City Manager James Soderlund.

Mermaids Studied At Seaquarium
by Captain Al Plant
with photos by Julie
For centuries the Florida Manatee has been
mistake for mermaids, the sirens of the sea. Tall
tales evoke visions of sailors diving to them and
to their death.
Professor Dale Woodyard has been lured to the
manatee for a totally different reason. Dale has
been a professional diver for many years and his
love for the sea and its creatures has increased
with every dive. He has been to far flung corners
of the earth or shall we say the oceans to satisfy
his thirst for knowledge. Six years ago he became
aware of the possible extinction of the Florida
manatee. His background as a psychologist
prompted him to look past the obvious and much
publicized reason of a few careless boaters
running them down.
The Miami Seaquarium is probably
remembered for Flipper the dolphin of television
fame in the 1960's and 70's and as an
entertainment attraction for tourists.
Seaquarium vice president and general manager
Warren Zeiller says entertaining the public is just
the tip of the iceburg. Two-thirds of the efforts of
the Miami Seaquarium are directed at research
and education. It is for this reason that Dale
Woodyard chose this facility for his project.
Originally from Chicago now a Professor of-
Psychology at the University of Windsor (Ontario,
Canada) Dale spends his winters doing manatee
research at Miami Seaquarium.
The Miami Seaquarium was among the first to
recognizethe plight of these gentle mammals that

once thrived in Florida's fresh and salt waters.
Scientists estimate there are only 1,000
manatee's or sea cows left. Very little is known
about the Florida Manatee. Professor Woodyard
says that their closet living relative is the
elephant. They have the same coarse skin,
prehensile nose and toenails on their flippers. The
manatee's gestation period is close to 14 months,
similar to that of an elephant. The Miami
Seaquarium with researchers like Dale Woodyard
is trying to determine as much as possible about
the manatee, to fill in the blanks in the knowledge
of this animal.
Since Dale Woodyard is a professor of
psychology his research has that sort of bias. The
day we visited him he was testing the manatee for
color sense. His experiments are based on the use
of colored disks that he presents to the manatee.
The disks have different colors but the same
brightness. When the manatee noses the colored
disk selected for identification that day he is
rewarded with a lump of monkey chow. Then the
colors are switched. He is only rewarded when
that correct color is nosed. This process
continues with new colors presented. Again
rewarded with monkey chow only for correctly
identifying that day's color. On other days a
different color will be the color of the day. This
process has proved that the manatee can
distinguish different colors from one another.
Another interesting sidebar to Professor
Woodyard's research seems to go along with the
old idea that the elephant has a long memory. One
manatee showed his ancestral links with the

Professor Woodyard says that raising the
manatee is only part of the problem of their
survival. Besides the manatee that have been
killed by boat props and collisions, the use of
herbicides to clear weeds from waterways could
account for a reduced birthrate or even death of
some herds. Manatees frequent the warm waters
of south Florida in the winter months and have
been lured to warm water powerplant outflows in
some northern areas. The closing of any one of
these plants could cause the loss of more

"Pond Apple" Island Mystery Solved
by Susan C. Coontz
Before the Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Property
Owners Association can save the "Pond Apple"
island in the north fork of the New River, located
500 ft. south of Broward Blvd. east of S.W. 14th
Ave., an investigation into why the Pond Apples
were dying had to be made. On August 15, 1986,
Chuck Willard, Founder of FLWPOA; Don Burgess
and Judy Sulser, Broward County Naturalists;
and myself went on an investigative boat trip to
the "Pond Apple" island and up the north fork of
the New River. What we found was the work of the
The Mangrove Gribble Sphaeroma terebrans is
a wood boring marine isopod that is found lower
intertial zones to subtidal zones. It rolls into a ball
when disturbed and is smaller but similar in
appearance to the pill bug. It is found between the
high tide and low tide marks in mangrove prop
roots, pilings, and other wood found in its estuary
habitat. The gribble is girdling (or removing a ring
of bard from) the pond apple trees on "Pond
Apple" island and reducing the wood to a spongy
consistency. As the rotten wood breaks away,
new layers are exposed to attack. Bacteria and
fungus then move in for the kill. The trees are
toppling over one by one. Without the pond
apples to hold the soil of the island, the soil will
eventually slip away into the water and
contribute to the sediment of north fork of the
New River and the island would disappear in time.
This portion of the New River esturary was
tested for salinity by the Environmental Quality
Control Board and was found to have a salinity of
4-7 ppm with fluctuating fresh water influencing
the salt content. It is the perfect habitat for the
Mangrove Gribble. Any trees planted to replace
the Pond Apples would be subject to the same
damage. When a tree is girdled, the flow of food

from the leaves to the roots is halted. Since the
roots are unable to manufacture food and depend
on their nourishment upon food from the leaves,
they die of starvation.
In a related matter, a group of local
conservationists attempted to persuade the city
of Fort Lauderdale to buy and preserve a one-mile
stretch of the north Fork of New River bank from
West Broward Boulevard to Delevoe Park, at 2520
NW Sixth Street. The "Blue Ribbon General
Obligation Bond Comittee" which is considering a
shopping list of projects to recommend to the city
commission to package in a bond issue along
with Riverwalk, is not including the proposed
"North Fork Natural Rivers Protective Easement",
according to Sandy Kokernoot of the
Environmental Coaltion of Broward County. The
northfork of the New River "wasn't placed on the
bond issue, but the committee is recommending
to the commission that they protect the area
through zoning and vegetation protection," write
Ms. Kokernoot. (See related story, "Riverwalk,

HOLLYWOOD City officials call it dumpy.
Tourists find it tropical. And local visitors think
its just a nice place to be.
Hollywood Beach reflects many facets. From
teenagers who ride their skateboards along the
boardwalk tothe French Canadians who populate
the area, this beach accommodates a lot of people.
"There's a good mixture here," remarks a long-
time Hollywood resident who comes to the beach
regularly. "Elderly people, teenagers, kids.
Everybody seems to fit in here."
Small businesses line the boardwalk, an
interesting array of fast food stands, souvenir
shops and bars. Their offbeat, sometimes sleazy
nature promotes a "Coney Island" atmosphere.
But if city officials have their way, the beach
will turn into an updated marketplace catering to
a more fashionable crowd.
The Casino building, a prime piece of property
running between Johnson and Michigan streets,
is currently the focal point of Hollywood's beach
revitalization plan. Proposals include a mall
offering affluent boutiques or a $20 million 146-
"Nothing definite has been decided on the
Casino building," said Lawerence Calderon,
assistant planner in Hollywood's Growth
Management office. "City Commissioners are
open to suggestions. Mainly, we want to revive
declining tourism and make the beach more
appealing to local residents."
Currently, the 40-year old building situated on
2.3 acres, houses numerous beach shops and a
parking garage. More shops, small motels and
garden apartments comprise the rest of the
Hollywood mayor Maria Giulianti stresses that
she would like to see the beach maintain its
present flavor but project a much classier image.
She is scouting around for prospective buyers
who might want to develop the land.
"I like it the way it is now," said Terri Guerrio, a
26-year old south Broward County resident who
has frequented the beach since childhood.
"Beaches are supposed to be casual. If they
modernize it, the area will become another
Seafair -- pretty, but pretentious."
The Casino -- created in 1925 by Hollywood
founder Joseph Young -- was once a large pool
surrounded by a courtyard. So vast was the pool,
it was used for small boat and canoe races.
But the fun was shortlived. The 1926 hurricane
wrought havoc with the Casino and the land was
handed over to the City.
In the 50's, beauty contests and small-time
bookie operations flourished.
Excitment has died down in recent years but on
any given day visitors can be spotted in droves.

It was the summer of 1962. A small band of
volunteers gathered at the old Casino Pool on the
corner of South Atlantic Boulevard and Southeast
5th Street. Scuba was something new. It was the
day of two hose regulators and "Go for the glory."
Part of the group belonged to the Fort Lauderdale
Fire Department and the rest of us were young
patrolmen with the city's police force.
Our instructors were life guards and old navy
types. The idea was to train us to recover cars,
guns, bodies and whatever from the city's many
inland canals and waterways. We hadn't heard of
pollution yet, so the dark murky rivers were more
of a manly adventure than any medical thing to
The head instructor, Skip Johnston, a lite
guard, made us swim one hundred miles, or so it
seemed. Then we held our breath and had to swim
forever. The smokers in the group soon retired.
Training in the Casino Pool was an adventure too.
It was a salt water pool and loaded with chlorine.
It was great fun to do the underwater excercises
with mask off sucking in all that great salt and
After the pool we headed for all those
wonderful rivers and canals that make up Fort
Lauderdale. Visibility was one inch. On one
exercise, Patrolman Henry Beidler wound up
inside a shopping cart forty five feet inside a rock
pit with no visibility at all. The thought of that
gives me the willies. Beidler however calmly
crawled out of it; he said later he thought it was a
lobster trap, he was hoping to find a bug inside.

Jordan, made us swim the canals at night, again

Bridge over New River at two in the morning
looking at a burglar, just caught, say that he
threw the cash box--over there---.
Somehow it would always be winter and two in
the morning and New River. Other guys got to
rescue the blond from a plane crash in the ocean. I
always got New River. Interesting thing though,
most people don't realize that out in the center of
New River between the tunnel and the Andrews
Avenue Bridge, the bottom isn't silty at all, it's a
white kind of beach sand, almost. It always made
me wonder what New River would be like if we
didn't use it for a public toilet. The current is so
swift there it would clean itself all by itself. Of
course that's only a non-scientific type talking.
Other fun jobs were rock pits and stolen cars.
Some folks collected their insurance by driving
their older cars into rock pits, it's great for
everybody's insurance rates. I used to think
about that crawling around in the silttrying to use
the one inch visibility to see the license tag.
The bodies were an adventure. When you
arrived on the scene and saw the car in the river,
you would see dozens of people all young, all
male trying to find the body. My very scientific
method was to get everybody out of the water.
Then take some line, give one end of it to a good
soldier on the shore, take the other end, swim out
to the car and let the current take me wherever.
Eventually it would take me to the poor drunken
soul who had been driving the car, as he would
always get caught somewhere on the bottom.
Real hi-tech. As a young patrolman, I thought I
was cool. As an almost fifty-year-old, I shudder to

think of what I thought was fun and adventure, oh
so long ago.
Now the Fort Lauderdale Police Dive Recovery
Team is headed by Captain Bill Burn. He has seen
to it that all his men are at least at the advanced
open water level. Most of them have been trained
in deep diving, night diving and rescue diver.
They employ the newest methods in search and
Captain Burn and Captain Lewis Williams were
in charge of the northern segment of the 283
divers that linked hands under the center of Port
Everglades for the United Way Hands Across
Broward last October 5th in 55 feet of water. It set
a world record for divers in a line together. The
record however, was never recognized by the
Guinness Book of Records because no one was
able to document that all 283 of us were there
holding hands together. I don't care because as
the leader of the southern segment of divers to-
link up under 50 feet of water with the policeman
and fireman, all of us know, we WAS there.
As with everything time goes on and newer
ways are always better than older cruder
methods. Fort Lauderdale can be proud of its up
to date group of ten police divers. It seems like
along time ago when we would take one end of the
line at two in the morning, jump into New River
and just go with the flow.
New Lobster Limits & Dates
Florida's lobster regulations have been
changed for next year's season. The state's
Marine Fisheries Commission has sacked the old
24-lobster-per-boat long bag limit and will
instituted a daily bag limit of six per person. The
commission is also moving the general season
opening to August 6, 1987, though "under the
proposal regulation, commercial lobstermen can
begin soaking (aging) their traps August 1st,"
according to Connor Davis of Tallahassee,
executive director of the commission. The two-
day mini-season for divers will be the last full
weekend of July next year (25 & 26).
The commission is trying to bring the mini-
season inline with federal regulations. In 1986 the
federal mini-season was July 19-20, overlapping
the state's season July 20-21.
