To the Editor:
The proposed Secretarial Management Plan for
the Red Drum (Redfish) Fishery of the Gulf of
Mexico raises many disturbing questions which.
offer a challenge to investigative reporters.
The most dangerous and destructive aspect of
the plan it the last of the seven management
measures: "Exemption from state red drum
landing, possession and/or sale laws."
Not only would this proposed pre-emption of
state laws virtually emasculate enforcement of
the plan, because dockside is the only cost-
effective means of enforcing these laws, but it
would open the door for further federal
supersession of state laws.
This 'proposal represents a complete reversal
from the federal emergency Interim Plan of June
25, which limited commercial harvesting of
redfish in the Gulf of Mexico to one million pounds
for 90 days and led to closure of the commercial
fishery two weeks later when the quota was
The Interim Plan made it clear the "These
regulations will not be construed to supersede
any State Law which prohibits the landing or
possession within the jurisdiction of the State of
any red drum."
Why was there a complete change of position?
Was it to help Mr. Gene Raffield get off the hook
with impending litigation?
For 1987, the Secretarial Plan proposes to allow
the harvesting of an amount of redfish (not to
exceed one million pounds) for resource
assessment purposes, in addition to an estimated
300,000 pounds which may be harvested as
incidental catch by commercial vessels fishing
for other species.
What scientific purpose will be served by
stressing an already stressed fishery by
permitting purse Seines to remove some 25 tons
of redfish from each of 20 locations? Wouldn't it
be much more productive from a scientific
standpoint to take smaller samplings over a
larger area and wider time frame?
Why use huge purse seines as the research
tool, when the Gulf States learned long ago that
such gear was too efficient for a fishery resource
which is dependent on natural productivity for its
The Gulf States are unanimous in banning
purse seines for harvesting food fish and all have
laws limiting possession of large, breeder size
redfish from none to two fish per person in an
effort to preserve the species. Two of the states -

Florida and Texas have felt compelled to embark
on expensive programs of hatcheries and
stocking in an effort to restore the stocks.
Yet, the federal managers (who only recently
entered the redfish management arena) claim
that the federal plan will regulate the directed
fishery in the federal zone "more effectively and
efficiently" through a determined allowable level
Re: Article in Vol 3 Issue 6, Page 5, by Nathan L.
How hard can it be for our city fathers to solve
the problem of disposal of live-aboard effluent? If
they really wanted to, they could require every
live-aboard to register with the city. Registration
would require certification that the vessel had the
Federally required toilet facilities. Further
regulations could require anyone who actually
lives aboard to obtain a permit which would
require verification of arrangements with a
"certified" pumping facility. I am sure that Pier 66
is not the only one and that there must be floating
facilities which could contract with the live-
aboard to regularly empty the holding tank. Of
course there are costs involved. But think of the
mess that could be so easily cleaned up. The city
could even induce entrepreneurs with various
benefits to go into the business. This could save
the city a small fortune and benefit all of the
Enforcement would then merely involve one
code inspector goingfrom boat to boat to check
ing most recent receipt for pumping. Failure to
comply could result in a fine, sufficient to paythe
costs of the inspections and possibly the removal
of the vessel from local waters, or at least the
live-aboard areas. Stickers could be used to post
on each non-complying vessel. It could be a
violation to remove a sticker without proper
certification. Peer pressure could be cultivate to
keep our waters clean.
The city could even underwrite some of the
costs of installation. Perhaps a grant of free
permits for 5 years would more than cover the
costs of complying with the Federal regulations.

Ask Big Al
I have a Fiberglass boat that is as dry as bone
at my dock; but, when I go out fishing or cruising
my bilge pump pumps out water about every hour
or so. When I open my hatches the bilge has water
in it. When I get back and pump out the bottom it
can stay dry for weeks.
Many things can push water into a boat while
running. A loose water hose can do it. A leaking
water pump or a bad or score shaft can leak water
under running conditions. I would start by
checking all my packing glands (stuffing boxes).
Then check all waterhoses for cracks or loose
connections. Then I would see if my water pump
is spraying water. Let someone operate the boat
while you check for leaks.
I am thinking about buying a boat and am a
little confused what would be the advantage of
netting a boat with two four-cylinder engines or
buying a boat with one V-8 engine. I think
maintenance would be less with one engine.
Both engine options have their points and
although you would have one coil, one carburetor
and one distributor on the V-8. If you did have
engine failure while outside, that would be it. With
two four-cylinder engine; fear of quit the other
could bring you in. Handling a boat with twin
screws is much easier and in all I would vote for
the two four cylinder engines for safety, easier
handling and all round maintenance

Rafting And R-1 Dock Rental Bans
To Be Enforced In Fort Lauderdale
by M.G. Swift
City ordinances which outlaw the rafting of
boats at docks in Fort Lauderdale will begin being
enforced by City Marine Facilities Supervisor
Jamie Hart and City Dockmaster Hilton Brown.
The City Advisory Board voted in October that
Hart and Brown should enforce Fort Lauderdale's
The board also advised the dockmaster's office
to enforce a city ordinance which restricts the
rental of dockage along residential single-family
neighborhoods zoned "R-1". This rule has been
ignored for years by thousands of waterfront
property owners and city officials in Fort
Marine Facilities Supervisor Hart had come to
Marine Advisory Board suggesting that they
recommend to the City Commission a new
ordinance which would allow regulated dockage
rental in R-1 zones. Hart reasoned that the current
ordinance is virtually unenforcible, given that
proof of money changing hands must be
established by city officials for them to satisfy
the law. He proposed that permits be issued to R-1
waterfront property owners wishing to rent their
docks upon payment of a fee. This measure would
be tangibly enforcible and generate revenue for
the city at the same time. The board rejected
Hart's idea and directed him to enforce the
current ordinance. They cited density conflicts
and safety considerations.
Dissentors warned that the abundance of
rafting and the rampant illegal dock rentals in
Fort Lauderdale's waterways indicate an over
supply of boats seeking a short supply of
dockage at over-priced slips among the city's
legitimate marinas and basins, private and public.
They warned that boaters might gravitate
towards more receptive harbors outside the city
hurting Fort Lauderdale's marine industries.
The Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board
reminded the dissenters that that body had
recommended to City Commission that the
commissioners include a city marina in the
Riverwalk Project. The commission chose not to
draft a marina plan into Riverwalk which will be
voted on by the city's electorate as a part of bond
issue proposal November 4th. A new marina with
several hundred boat slips might satisfy some of
the surplus dockage demand, proponents argued.

1985 Recreation Boating
The Coast Guard has released the 1985
recreational boating accident statistics. The
number of recreational boats in the nation's
waters increased by 400,000 in 1985. This brings
an estimated fleet of over 16.1 million. The C.G.
reported 8,300 vessels were involved in accidents
resulting in 1,116 fatalities (6.9 fatalities per
100,000 boats), 2,757 injuries and more than $20
million in property damage. The Coast Guard
believes almost all of the fatal accidents are
reported, however, they estimate that fewer than
ten percent of the non-fatal ones are reported.
The statistics for.the last four years are:

Waterfront Issues On The Ballot
by M.G. Swift
The electorate of Fort Lauderdale will be voting
on a general obligation bond issue during the
general election. November 4th Riverwalk. beach
revitalization, the International Swimming Hall of
Fame Museum and the Discovery Center are
among the city projects that stand to benefit from
the passage of this bond issue. Supporters
estimate that the $44.7 million proposal would
cost the average homeowner $41 per year or
eleven cents per day for the next 20 years.
The city wants to improve public areas
downtown along the banks of the New River
making "them attractions in their own right, not
only giving the beautifully scenic riverbank back
to the people but encouraging the private sector
to restore and revitalize this historic area. This
Riverwalk project would showcase the site of the
city's birth place, with a public plaza in the
Brickell Avenue area. Waterfront land adjacent to
and east of the planned Performing Arts Center
would be acquired by the city as a major public
open space for special events and entertainment
complementing both Riverwalk and the
Performing Art Center. Wide, tropically
landscaped pedestrian paths along.the north and
south banks of New River would be constructed,
linking several large public plazas to provide28.8
acres of public open space and river access
creating in effect a "Riverwalk Linear Park".
Sidewalks on Southwest Second Street would be
expanded to fifteen feet to improve the pedestrian
environment on a street destined to be an
alternate tralficway for Broward Boulevard The
price tag for Riverwalk is almost $7 5 million
A-1-A would be reconstructed and Beach
Promenade created with the proposed beach
revitalization. From Sunrise south to Seabreeze,
bicycle paths, widen sidewalks, elimation of
beachside parking and landscaping would be a
part of this pedestrian promenade. Side street
parking would be expanded in selected areas
with construction of center angled parking,
installation of meters, landscaping and
irrigation. Birch Road and Seabreeze Boulevard
would be realigned and connected with changes
at Birch and Cortez, and Seabreeze at Las Olas.
The bottom line for beach revitalization is $13.8
The International Swimming Hall of Fame
Museum would be expanded with the addition of
a second floor and alteration to existing space to
display a rapidly expanding inventory of exhibits
and memorabilia. The museum is located west of
the beach between Seabreeze and the
Intracoastal Waterway. Improvements would
total $1.2 million.
The Discovery Center for Science and
Technology is located on the north bank of the
New River just west of the FEC railroad bridge
downtown. Eight million dollars in construction
and development of a 65,000 square foot
structure would include a comprehensive science
complex and "IMAX" theatre.
The bond issue also includes a $6.9 million
dollar neighborhood revitalization project and
additional parking and recreation improvements
totalling $7.3 million.
Repayment on the bonds is scheduled over the
next twenty years at an average annual interest
rate of 7.25 percent. Annual repayments by the
city would total $4.3 million.

Coat-Tail Effect May Decide Who Wins Port Election Races
by Nathan L. Roberts
Betsy Krant, a political activist who has never
held public office and has no previous experience
in port or maritime affairs, won the Sept. 30 Port
Everglades District 4 primary run-off against
David Block to become the Democratic candidate
who will face Robert "Bob" Barber in the Nov. 4
Krant, 43, is the Broward fund-raiser for Gov.
Bob Graham's campaign to unseat Sen. Paula
Hawkins. A cum laude graduate of Radcliffe
College who holds a masters degree in education
from Harvard, Krant was a school teacher for six
years and is the business coordinator of Krant
and Hoffeld. She is married to Dr. David Krant and
has two daughters.
Bob Barber is a retired Coast Guard officer who
was a Port Everglades Commissioner from 1980
to 1984. Like David Block Barber notes that Krant
"doesn't have any experience for the job." This
was Block's main charge against Krant both in
the primary and run-off contests. Krant dismisses
these charges and criticisms with the statement
that "one doesn't have to be able to dock or steer a
ship in order to make policy," which she says is
the Port Commission's chief task. She describes
herself as one who has strong experience coping
Krant won the run-off with 41,735 votes or 59
percent of the ballots cast to David Block's 29,258
votes or 41 percent.
Block, a former Merchant Marine purser,
accepted his loss as something of a victory. "If
there's any consolation in a moral victory," he
declared, "I think I've got it." He said also that
Krant's win came as no surprise, noting that she
raised far more money than he did and outspent
him by an overwhelming margin. He raised no
money for the run-off phase of the race. All told he
spent under $2,000 to something in the
neighborhood of $20,000 spent by Krant.
-Krant had the backing of George Platt,
chairman of the Broward Democratic Executive
Committee, of which Krant and Block are
members. She also had the endorsement of condo
and union leaders, and of The Miami Herald.
Krant's support by the union leaders is
puzzling, considering that Block is a member of
the AFL-CIO building trades union and is on
record as a backer of unionized labor at the port.
Krant is on record with at least one view that runs
counter to a traditional AFL-CIO position.
Block, for example, noted that had he been a
port commissioner this past April, he would have
joined in a vote denying permission to two
companies to operate at the port because they
both use non-union help. Krant said she would
have voted to admit the two companies because
Florida is a right-to-work state.
The labor movement holds that state right-to-
work laws, which outlaw the closed shop and pur
hiring, and limitations on the union shop, are
restrictive of labor's rights. (State right-to-work
laws have their orgin in the Taft-Hartley Act,
actually the Labor-ManagemenRelations Act of
1947, enacted by Congress over a veto by
President Harry S. Truman).
How Krant will fare against her Republican
opponent depends not only on the kind of
campaign that both are waging but on the
electoral pull of the major candidates in the
state's senatorial and gubernatorial contests. It
may well be that the coat-tail effect will be
That scenario applies also to the contest
between port chairman Mike Marinelli and Robert
Elder, his Republican challenger. Elder is the
owner with her husband of a port-based trucking
firm and an import company.
One thing is certain. Whoever wins, Port
Everglades is entering the most ambitious and
fateful period in the half century of it's existence.
It is already a major competitor of the Port of
Miami, which to date has been South Florida's
major ship center. C. Thomas Burke, the new
director, forecasts that Port Everglades will be
South Florida's premier port "within the next 10
Another factor facing the Port Commission is
its own existence. A movement is under way by
business and political circles to bring the port
under jurisdiction of the Broward County
Commission. The plan is to create an authority
that would embrace Port Everglades and the Fort
Lauderdle-Hollywood International Airport.
Boaters Need New Radio
License When Changing
The Federal Communications Commission is
receiving numerous inquiries from recreational
boaters concerning their ship station radio
licenses and call signs. The two most frequently
asked questions are;
(1) If I sell my boat, but keep the radio, do I
retain the license and call sign?
(2) If I. buy a boat, with a radio, is the license
transferred fo me?
The answer-to both question is NO! A ship
station license may not be transferred or signed
from one licensee to another, or from one boat to
another. When a boat changes hands, its former
owner must return the license to the Commission
and its new owner must apply for a new license,
using FCC Form 506.
It takes approximately 30 days from the date of
application to obtain a ship station license.
However, an applicant who has a state, federal or
documented registration number for a boat may
fill out FCC Form 506A, which grants temporary
authority (90 days) to operate the radio station
pending receipt of a license.
For more information, boaters may call the

How the point system works:
Each race is worth one point in the first
roundrobin, five points in the second and twelve
in the third. The four boats with the best scores
meet in the challenger semifinals. The first
twoboats to score four victories in that series
meet in the challenger finals. The first boat to win
four races in that series meets the Australia
defender in the America's Cup. The first boat to
win four races, wins the cup. See the schedules

South African Martin Gets Hero's Welcome Arriving First Home
CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Amidst more than
50 spectator boats, naval ships, fire boats,
several hundred well-wishers, champagne and-a
belated birthday cake, South African John Martin
was given a champion's welcome home. October
11th as he arrived into Cape Town to finish the
first leg of The BOC Challenge 1986-87.
As he guided the 60-foot TUNA MARINE across
the finish line, making eight knots under
spinnaker, at 10:10:36 p.m. local time (20:10:36
GMT) in a light breeze to win the first leg of this
27,000-mile sailing marathon, an ebullient Martin
raised both arms in a victorious gesture. Horns
blared from the many spectator craft present, fire
boats spewed water jets into the air, and the
South African Mine Sweeper S.A.S. EAST
LONDON standing by fired a cannon in salute as
the white-hulled sloop crossed the line.
Martin completed the 7,100-mile journey in 42
days, 01 hours, 10 minutes, eclipsing by five days
the record set by the '82-83 BOC winner Phillipe
Jeantot. The "Flying Frenchman," as he is
dubbed, had rocketed into Cape Town ahead of
his nearest competitor, covering the distance in
47 days, 00 hours, 01 minutes, 02 seconds.
French solo sailor Philippe Jeantot joined
fellow competitor John Martin in Cape Town the
next day, crossing the finish line in Table Bay at
10:29.35 GMT (12:29.35 Local) to end his first leg in
The BOC Challenge 1986-87.
Jeantot had cruised towards Cape Town during
the previous 24 hours, closing the gap between
his 60-foot CREDIT ACRICOLE III and Martin's
TUNA MARINE, which arrived the previous night
to capture line honors on the Newport-to-Cape
Town leg of this round-the-world- yacht race.
Stiff 30-knot winds had carried the green-and-
white hull at an average of 11.5 knots during the
night, sending Jeantot into port just 14 hours
behind Martin. Jeantot, runaway winner of the

first BOC Challenge in 1982-83, was greeted with a
warm spectator welcome, but met rain and
blustery winds that suddenly died 1/2 mile from
the finish line. As Jeantot toiled to inch the boat
forward towards the line, a puff came up and
carried the Ribadeau-designed-sloop the final
Jeantot's total elapsed time for the leg was 42
days, 15 hours, 29 minutes and 35 seconds,
bettering his own record of 47 days, set during the
first BOC Challenge, by four-and-one-half days. In
that contest, Jeantot had streaked into Table Bay
an insurmountable seven days ahead of his
closest competitor. Jeantot's official elapsed
time, including a penalty of 1 hour 28 minutes for
arriving late for inspections, is: 42d, 16h, 57m,
Fighting headwinds gusting to gale force,
Frenchman Guy Bernardin, who livesin North
Kingston, Rhode Island, sailed across the finish
line in Table Bay to arrive third on Leg I of the BOC
Challenge, the solo race around-the-world,
Bernardin took his 60-foot racer BISCUITS LU
across the line at 02:58:43 local time Monday
morning (8:58 pm Sunday EDT) to complete the
first leg in 43 days 5 hours 58 minutes and 43
seconds. Bernardin fought for five hours shifting
headwinds, varying from 10-50 knots in gusts
rushing down Table Mountain.
Bernardin reported that sailing a 60-footer
was/ "very difficult for a solo sailor. It was not
,a pleasure like sailing my 37-footer in the last
IBOC Challenge -- but you must have the
maximum size boat to be competitive. You
must keep going and going and going."
"I followed the course I had planned from the
beginning, but the South Atlantic high blocked
our path. We (the leaders) were forced to tack
above the High to keep up our speed. I had lost my

West... For Offshore Racing Enthusiasts
by Andy Newman
KEY WEST, FLORIDA KEYS -- A distinctively
American city with the look and feel of the
Caribbean, the island of Key West's continuing
seafaring heritage beckons offshore race
competitors from around the world during the
1986 Key West World Cup Offshore Championship
-Race, November 2-8.
Before the miracle of Henry Flagler's Overseas
Railroad and subsequent Overseas Highway, Key
West was accessible only by boat--a fact which
accounts for its physical appearance more in line
with ports of the Caribbean chain rather than an
extension of Florida.
And while Key West offers many activities
typical of the islands--such as sightseeing, diving
and fishing, it's relatively small area (eight
square miles) and excellent marine facilities
make it the perfect place to host the "Indy" event
of ocean power boat racing.

cruise dock (Mallory Square) hugs the deep water

was first populated by Calusa Indians and
subsequently was a Spanish territory, following
Ponce de Leon's discovery of Florida. In 1821 a
Mobile businessman, John Simonton, bought the
island for $2,000.
In 1868, Key West was a boom town, the largest
city in the State of Florida. Henry Flagler's
Overseas Railroad was completed in 1912 and
after running 22 years, rail service was
discontinued. The roadbed, however, became the
foundation of the Old Overseas Highway. Today's
new highway with 42 modern bridges was
completed in 1982.
After years of military presence, tourism is
today's chief industry for Key West. Key West
attracts writers, artists and people yearning for
the laid-back, relaxed island lifestyle.
Perhaps it is due to these attributes, as well as
a superb natural offshore power boat "race
track," that Key West has become a popular host
city for the world offshore championships.

Team Apache Wins Apache Gran
by Robert G. Black
MIAMI, FL, Sept. 27--Ben Krammer of North
Miami, Florida became the 1986 American Power
Boat Association (APBA) Offshore Open Class
High Points Champion by driving TeamApacheto
second place in the Apache Offshore Gran Prix of
This was the tenth and final race of the 1986
Offshore season--and it was arguably one of the
most exciting in Offshore history--because the
competition to become National High Points
Champion in four classes was so close going into
Only one injury was reported during the race,
although seas were a "confused" three to five
feet. Steve Carrier of Key Largo, driver of Smooth
Operator, suffered injured ribs. "Confused"
means the wind is going one direction, the current
another and the waves a third.
First place in Open at today's race went to
Lorne Leibel of Willowdale, Canada, driver of
Molson Indy. He averaged 77.101 mph around the
159 mile course. Leibel was fourth in the point
standings before the Apache race.
With Leibel winning the race, Kramer had to
earn second place points to beat Bob Kaiser,
driver of G-K Systems, as well as Leibel, in the
points race to become National Champion.
In other big-boat action--the Superboats--AI
Copeland of New Orleans won the race and his
third national championship in a row with Pop-
eye's Diet/ Coke #1, the big 50-foot catamaran. "I
was a little afraid of breaking down because my
son (Al Jr.) was making a run at me and I didn't
want him to pass me," Copeland said jokingly. "It
was very bumpy out there," he added.
Young Copeland finished third today in the V-
hull Popeye's Diet Coke #10, following Tim Ciasulli
of Scotch Plains, New Jersey, in Maxon. IN the
points race, they tied for second place.
APBA rules say that in such a case, the leading
position goes to whoever had the faster course

average speed in any National race that year.
Ciasulli averaged 77.362 mph in the Miami race,
but Al Copeland Jr. averaged 77.407 mph at
Sarasota, Florida on July 6, just enough to give
him second place in the final Superboat high point
Bob Kaiser, from Grosse Pointe, Michigan, led
the Open Class race at Miami most of the way in
G-K Systems, but was trailed closely by Leibel in
Molson Indy and Sal Magluta of Miami in
Seahawk US-1. Kaiser also led the Open
standings going into the race, but knew he had to
win because he wasn't many point ahead of
Kramer, Leibel or JesseJames driver Chris Lavin.
As a result, Kaiser and throttleman Errol Lanier
didn't ease off, and this contributed to the
eventual blowout in one of Kaiser's engines,
costing him the high points championship.
This left Open class with Molson Indy, Seahawk
US 1 and Team Apache running 1-2-3. Magluta
had been running hard in Seahawk US 1, and it
too suffered a breakdown. Kramer and Team
Apache then took second place, and the title of
Winning the high points title was sweet for
Kramer. He is vice president of the Apache
Powerboats boatbuilding company, sponsor of
the Miami race.
Ben's original boat for the 1986 season, a
unique 41-foot Apache-Maelstrom catamaran,
was badly damaged at the previous race in Sodus
Point, New York, and could not be repaired in time
for this race. Kramer raced in Sal Magluta's
Cougar catamaran Seahawk US 1, which was
repainted to become Team Apache.
Magluta, the Open Class high points champ for
the past two years, was far behind in the points
race and therefore loaned Kramer the boat.
Magluta raced in-an Apache deep V that Kramer
loaned him, repainted as Seahawk US 1.
Chris Lavin of Westport, Connecticut, driver of
Jesse James, was third in the standings before

this race and a good shot at the national title, but
his boat broke down within minutes of the start.
In the Modified Class, John D'Elia of Greenwich,
Connecticut had the high points title locked up
two races ago with Special Edition.
First place in Modified went to Michael Lehman
of Key Biscayne in Love-It-Again. Second was
Jack Bishop of Jupiter, Florida in Smilin' Jacks.
D'Elia took third.
Dominick Palombi of Kinnelon, New Jersey
finished fourth in Pro Stock, netting enough
points with What-A-Package to become 1986 Pro
Stock High Points Champion.
Wayne Vince of Bloomsburg, New Jersey won
the Pro Stock race, averaging 67.827 mph around
the 118 mile course in Triple Threat. Second was
Nicky Cutro Jr. of LakeGeorge, New York, driving
Boardwalk. Allan Dunteman of Oak Brook, Illinois
took third at the wheel of Agitator.
Bob Erickson of Minnetonka, Minnesota drove
AME4000 Express to fifth place in the Miami race,
earning just enough points to win the Stock A
high points title. Felix Serralles III from Ponce,
Puerto Rico finished second in the race and in the
point standings with Miss Don Q.
Al Schwencke made a late-season debut in
roaring style by winning Stock A in S.T.
Enterprise, with Serralles following in second and
Gordon Oakley Jr. of Boca Raton finishing third in
Bill Kaye of Saugatuck, Michigan won Stock B
in Captain Maintained, taking the Stock B
championship in the process. Second was Joe
Sorrentino Sr. of Sunrise, Florida in Fully

third in Profit Sharing. If Sorrentino won the race
and Kaye came in second, Sorrentino would have
been the champion.

Port Everglades Sets Sights On Becoming Florida's #1 Seaport
by Nathan L. Roberts
Florida's deepest port -- Broward's own Port
Everglades -- has its sights set on becoming the
Sunshine State's biggest, and soon.
With the decks cleared for a $105,000,000
bonanza on its forthcoming bond issue, Port
Everglades is on course for both a giant
expansion of its cargo and passenger handling
capacities and a rise to become Florida's premier
seaport -- a distinction long held by the Port of
Miami. C. Thomas Burke, Port Everglades' new
executive director, says it will happen in the next
10 years. The seven-member port commission
Port Everglades is literally laying siege to the
Port of Miami's mantle as number one. While
other Florida ports are also growing Port
Everglades sees no challenge from any of them --
Palm Beach, Tampa and Jacksonville.
Right now, the Port of Miami is out front. A
comparison of cargo tonnage and cruise
passengers handled by the two ports in 1985
leaves no doubt as to who is first. Compared to
about 575,000 tons of general cargo handled by
Port Everglades last year, the Port of Miami
handled just over two and a half million. In
number of passengers, Port Everglades last year
was a departure/arrival point for over 200,000,
while Port of Miami accomodated about two and
two quarter million. That was last year.
Port Everglades has been playing catch-up.
Projections for both 1986 and next year show that
Port Everglades is plowing ahead at full steam.
Projections for this year are that Port Everglades
will handle 650,000 tons of general cargo or
85,000 more than last year, while 450,000 cruise
ship passengers or double last year's total will
pass through its gates.
For 1987, the projection is that Port Everglades
will handle one million tons of general cargo
compared to 3.3 million at Port Miami. Next year,
too, Port Everglades expects that 600,000

passengers will sail through its waters compared
to 2.8 million at Miami.
While these figures show Port of Miami leading
by far, they also show a steady and even heady
increase in Port Everglades activity. It is this, plus
results expected from the building of new cargo
and cruise terminals on part of a 91-acre tract
being sought from Hollywood, Inc., at the south
end of the port, that accounts for the optimism
and expectancy that Port Everglades will begin to
tower very close to the Port of Miami by the end of
this decade and surmount it by the first half of the
A chief reason for this optimism is that Port
Everglades is making itself a port of choice by
cruise and cargo lines through a loosening of the
hold on its docks by the International
Longshoreman's Association (ILA). Competing
unions, notably the Teamsters, and even non-
union workers, both working for less than ILA
members, began to work at Port Everglades by
the start of summer.
As against the $17-an-hour plus'benefits paid
to ILA dockers, teamsters work for $15-an-hour
plus benefits and non-union dockworkers work
for approximately half what teamsters get.
The ILA's hold on Port Everglades' docks is
already broken and new ship lines are starting to
move in for the cost advantage -- some from the
Port of Miami.
Port Everglades, is now the new base for
Consolidated Caribbean Transport, the first
major cargo line to haul anchor from the Port of
Miami and drop it here. Its ships were loaded and
unloaded by ILA members, who work all of
Miami's docks exclusively. The CCt moveto Port
Everglades, where it will use teamsters as its
longshoremen, is an obvious escape from the
high-cost ILA monopoly at the Port of Miami.
Also granted berth space at Port Everglades is
West Indies Transport Co., which will use non-
union dockers, and Seaboard Marine of Miami.

The ILA has filed suit in Broward Circuit Court
challenging the Port Everglades Authority's
decision to admit the Miami-based cargo lines
after a unanimous vote in April barring them. The
union charges that the Port Commission reversal
of its decision came without a public hearing and
that its action violates the port's charter in
addition to costing union members theirjobs. The
ILA has 200 members working on the Port
The Port Commission is adamant.
Commissioner Joe DeLilo says the authority has
to keep the port open to new business and not
require the use of union dockwot kers as a
condition for operating at it.
The port, in effect, has not only started to sink the
ILA but is opening a new chapter in business
competition with other ports on the one hand and
labor-management relations on the other. ILA
members will continue to work at the port but
they will no longer be the only dockers there.
Florida law prohibits employers from denying
employment to non-union workers.
Curiously, although the ILA is a member of the
AFL-CIO, its threatened position at all of the
state's ports -- especially in Miami, where it has
been and still is the only union on the docks-- has
brought no public outcry from the Broward AFL-
CIO whose leaders are prominent in county and
With Port Everglades andthe Port of Miami fast
emerging .as among the country's leading
seaports -- having already cut into New York's
and New Orleans's Latin-American trade --
forecasts are that the attraction of new business
and the expansion of cargo and passenger
volume will result in turning South Florida into a
significant international business force in the
years ahead. Still to be enlarged are imports from

Judge Rules Port Can Sell Bonds, Pay-Off Clause Stands
by Nathan L. Roberts
The Port Everglades Commission carried the
day in Broward Circuit Court at September's end
with a ruling by Judge George Tedder approving
the Port Authority's issuance of up to $150 million
in bonds for a major port expansion despite a
clause in the bond contract specifying that any
governmental body taking control of the port
must pay off the bond indebdtedness without
delay, plus a five percent premium.
The court challenge to the port authority's boiid
sale, prompted by the pay-off clause, was filed in
the name of the Broward legislative delegation
and Sen, Peter Weinstein, D-Coral Springs, the
del gation'schairman, and Rep. Jack Tobin, D-
The delegation has 30 days in which to appeal
Judge's Tedder's ruling, in which case it will be
heard by the Florida Supreme Court.
Weinstein said it is likely the delegation will
appeal. He said also he may request the state
attorney general to enter the case.
Opponents of the bond sale hold that the Port
Commissioners devised the pay-off clause in
their contract with the underwriters in order to
forestall plans for a port take-over by the
Broward County Commission. Support for such a
take-over comes from the Greater Fort
Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and Broward
political leaders. They advocate it openly.
The legislative delegation's attorney. Eugene
Steinfeld, argued before Judge Tedder that the
pay-off clause in the bond agreement with the
underwriters is an attempt "to provide for the
perpetual existence of the Port Everglades
"It is nothing more than an attempt," he argued,
"to contract away the sovereign legislative power
of the State of Florida."
The Port Everglades Authority and its seven
member board of commissioners are chartered
by the State Legislature.
Port Commissioners deny that their action
represents a challenge to the legislature.
Inclusion of the pay-off clauses in the
agreement with the underwriters was simply an

assurance to bond holders that they would be
paid, according to the Port's legal counsel for the
Linwood Cabot, the port attorney, argued
before the judge that the port has the right to
issue bonds that includes a pay-off clause and
that there ought to be no judicial interference.
Judge Tedder's ruling would seem to support
Cabot's contention. The judge's decision was
greeted by port commissioners as support for the
port authority's independence and as a rebuke to
the legislative delegation for its role. The judge
handed down his ruling without comment.
In a way, the court ruling could be seen also as
a rebuke to those who raised a flurry of
objections, complaints and accusations at a late
August Port Authority public hearing that the
commissioners were acting on the bond issue
with heedless haste. The commission approved
flotation of the bonds by unanimous vote --at the
end of the hearing.
The resolution as adopted provided for a bond
issue of up to $150 million but the expectation is
that it will be in the range of $105 to $115 million.
According to James Phifer, who was acting Port
Director until C. Thomas Burke took the port's
helm on Oct. 15, the bonds will be repaid with port
revenues, not with taxes levied against property
owners. Interestingly, former Port Director James
Connolly objected to a bond issue when it was
considered in late 1985. Connolly's position was
that port savings ananad anticipatedrevenues could
underwrite planned expansions, that it wasn't
necessary to go into a bond indebtedness. His
objection to the bond issue was given as one
reason, among others, for his dismissal. Now as
then, the port commissioners regard the multi-
million dollar bond issue as crucial to the port's
expansion. Unless the port expands in a big way,
they say, it will lose out to other competing
Florida ports -- those in Miami, Palm Beach,
Tampa and Jacksonville.
Retained by the Port Authority to float the
bonds are these New York firms and the fees they
will earn: Drexel Burnham Lambert is the
underwriter, which will realize $3 million from the
sale; Mudge, Rose, Guthrie, Alexander and

New York Stowaways: Check Boats Before Leaving Dock
by Susan Coontz .... -
Back in March, a couple towed their boat from
New York to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Upon arrival,
and much to their surprise, they found four
stowaway raccoon cubs approximately 19 24
days old nestled in the canvas covered dingy. It
seems the four cubs survived the 7 10 day trip
alone as their mother missed the boat! The couple
then brought the raccoon cubs to the Wildlife Care
Center where Sandy Lewis, a volunteer of eight
months, adopted the four orphans until they
became old enough to forage on.their own at four
and one-half months.
What is it like to raise 4 raccoons? Sandy says
she loved the job. She brought the two males and
two females weighing approximately 1 1/2
pounds each to her home. The runt female, who
earned the name E-nee, still had her eyes closed.
Like a good mother, Sandy fed them Espilac
puppy formula six times a day with an eye
dropper. Later as the cubs grew, she bottle fed
them twice to three times a day adding eggs.
vitamins, baby cereal, and baby jar fruit. In fact,
for two weeks during the busy nesting season
and while one of the W.C.C. volunteers was on
vacation, Sandy took care of 24 birds, 4 raccoons,
and 2 squirrels. She said it took her 3 hours 3
times a day to feed all of them. What dedication!!
Just before being released, the New York
raccoons ate yogurt, bananas, watermelon, and
cat food. In the wild, raccoon cubs begin
accompanying their mother on forages at 10
weeks, but are not weaned until 4 months.
So how did these 4 curious, mischievious
raccoons fit into the Lewis household? As they
grew, Sandy came to know each one by their
slightly different physical characteristics and
personalities. Having already raised two Florida
raccoons this season, she noted that the New
York raccoons were more gray in color than their
brownish cousins. Her records also showed that
the New York raccoons outweighed the Florida
raccoons. The Florida raccoons weighed in at 5- 6
pounds at four months and the New York
raccoons weighed in at a hefty 8 pounds at three
months. (Note: The North American Raccoon has
25 subspecies) Sandy's husband built a cage for

the four; however, they were allowed to roam
around the house during feeding time. Whoops,
watch the lamps! Sandy said that they never tried
to bite. She couldn't help naming them even
though it is said to produce further attachment. E-
nee was her favorite, Me-nee and My-nee were
the boys, and Mo as a largefemale --four bundles
of joy that became the main attraction in the
Lewis home for four months.
I asked Sandy how she came to be a Wildlife
Care Center volunteer. She said she had become
bored, but really didn't want a scheduled job, and

she loved animals. It was a perfect match.
Although she had no experience with wild
animals, she has learned from other volunteers
and by asking questions. So far she has raised 12
squirrels, 6 raccoons, and 50-75 birds. She was
sad at the releasing of the four New York
raccoons in the Everglades. It is difficult not to
become attached to such lovable animals.

Conservation Corner: Fans
Fan-tastic idea for energy savings. Do you
know that the use of fans can help keep you
cooler or warmer? You don't, well here's how.
It's quite simple, fans move air, whether cooled
or heated. They do not refrigerate, heat, nor can
they remove humidity as air conditioners do. But
fans can be a cost effective alternative to air
conditioning, helping to reduce energy cost.
There are two basic types: Circulating and
ventilating. Circulating fans are used in warmer
weather to move air across your skin,
evaporating the skins surface moisture, helping
you to feel cooler. When used in conjunction with
air conditioning, the thermostat can be set-3 to 5
degrees higher then the recommended setting of
78 degrees. Not only will you save on air
conditioning cost and extend the life of the air
conditioner but you can keep cool.
During the cooler weather this same air
movement can keep you warmer. How? We may
have forgotten hot air rises. By running the fan,
the hot air at the ceiling is moved throughout the
room, making the entire room feel warmer.
Ventilating or whole house fans expel air from
inside our homes to the outdoors. This type of fan
could be used in place of air conditioning but like
circulating fans this type won't refrigerate, heat,
nor remove humidity. One major difference
between these two fan types is that circulating
fans can be used in conjunction with the air
conditioning system while the ventilating type
should never be used when your air conditioner is
operating. The reason for this is because the
ventilating fan expels air from the inside to the
Fans cost only pennies per day compared to
dollars spent in air conditioning. The estimated
cost to operate a fan for four hours are:
Whole-house (ventilating) .12 cents
Window .06 cents
Ceiling .03 cents

A Different Kind Of Boat Show!
by Capt. Al Plant Photos by Julie
A sharp turn to port after you enter the Port
Everglades Harbor puts you on a course south
down the Intracoastal Waterway past Ft.
Lauderdale's other fleet. No pleasure boats here.
These are the work craft of the oceans of the
world. Who are these often strange looking boats
that we see alongside and up on the dry dock lifts
at Tracor Marine terminal and shipyard?
Ocean construction Platforms, Cable Layers,
Research Vessels, Tugs, Mud Boats and Naval
Ships from U.S. and other fleets.
Most of us who have sailed past the facility
have seen these boats but wondered what they
were for. For the most part the ship yard refits
vessels from all over the globe. The huge
syncrolift can raise most vessels up to 400 ft. and
put them on land in the yard for bottom and
propulsion work.'The machine shop, Marine
Engineering and Naval architecture departments
provide drawings, specifications, and expertise
for modifications and repairs on Military,
Commercial and Pleasure craft.
The part of the operation that we can't see is
what the ships of Tracor do. But a visit to 'OAK"
Kidd, Director of Tracor's Ocean Technology
division was a real enlightenment. "OAK", former
commanding officer of the "YORKTOWN", now

returned from assignment with the US Navy in
waters east of the Bahamas. The PL III was

carried thousands of feet of pipe on her deck. One
of her first assignments was the Ocean Thermal

Capt. Bill Lambie says the male and female
crew members enjoy life at sea. The ever
changing and challenging assignments keep
everybody interested. There is never a dull
moment being involved in Acoustic Testing of
underwater listening devices for accuracy and
performance for example. It takes skill in
navigation and seamanship.
The SeaCon is owned by the Navy but operated
by Tracor. Its an Ocean Construction Platform,
propelled by a Voith Schnider Cycloidal
positioning system. Tom Glencross, 1st Officer,
can travel to an ocean site location at 6 knots and
position SeaCon and keep her steady within 3
meters of accuracy in 30 to 7000 feet of water.
Cable laying for acoustic arrays, installation of
morrings or ocean platforms is easy with "Sea
Con's" sophisticated equipment and experienced
crew. The vessel, a former Barge that transported
missiles to Cape Canaveral facilities has been
laid out to be rigged with construction equipment
without major refit. A 400 square foot moon pool
for deploying diving submersibles and equipment
is amidships. The SeaCon has 19 two person
staterooms, as well as a 12 person bunkroom.
Accomodations are comfortable for ships crew
and project personnel.
Port Everglades is the home of this other fleet.
Those jobs include repairs to oil rigs after
hurricane, oil exploration, oceanographic
studies, and electric power from oceans
So next time you cruise past Tracor Marine on
the Intra-coastal take a close look at the ships
you'll find one there for almost any ocean related
project, research, salvage or construction job.

Tasty Touring By The Water
by Nedda Anders
For boat people who miss the water when they
leave their boats and go North in the summer,
your restaurant critic (having recently returned
from a six-week auto tour of New York, Vermont,
and Canada) has prepared some notes on the
subject of meals by the water's edge.
Beginning from the furthest point, our best
taste-tour in Canada was a picnic supper. At a
farmer's market in Kitchener, with its large
Mennonite population, we bought spicy country
sausages. Canadian cheddar cheese, a
vinaigrette of cucumbers, large luscious
tomatoes, peaches grown for local consumption
only because they do not travel well, homemade
oatmeal bread and gingersnaps, plus a local
white wine. Then on to Stratford for an evening of
Shakespeare. But first we dined. The people who
run the Festival had provided tables for
picnickers, well-spaced for privacy, and we were
one of many theater-goers who assuaged our
appetities along the banks of the idyllic Avon
River, graced by gliding swans in superb natural
setting. What a feast!
In Canada, we ran into a language problem,
although everyone involved spoke English. At
Nigara-on-the-Lake (we had gone there for the
George Bernard Shaw festival) we stopped at a
local inn and asked about the "fresh catch of the
day" listed on themenu. "Oh, that's frozen red
snapper," said the waitress.
Our drive to Canada through the stunning
Finger Lakes area of New York had been
interrupted by a deja-vu visit to Letchworth State
Park, noted for three beautiful waterfalls of the
winding Genesee River Gorge. We had visited the
area in the 1960's, and the charming inn and the
scenic splendor of the park were unforgettable
memories. The quiet little park had become a
busy tourist attraction in the intervening years--
specially this summer, when travel to Europe was
only for the courageous or the foolhardy. So we
called ahead for reservations and were seated
promptly, to enjoy a first-rate lunch. A delightful
seafood chowder, and unusual chicken salad
filled with fruit and pretty garnishes, 'and
homemade biscuits... all moderately priced. Good
food. but--aah!--that view. Letchworth State Park
Inn, Portageville, New York. Open May 1 to
Chautauqua, not far from Buffalo, attracts a
multitude of senior Floridians intent on spending
all or part of the summer in an educational-
recreational environment. The Institution,
founded in 1874, offers concerts, operas, plays
and lectures, along with lessons in art music,
dance, crafts, and religion. Most of its hotels and
restaurants are tacky, but the Athenaeum is a
charmer. Verandas surrounding a beautiful room
overlook a lake dotted with sailboats. Wallpaper
designed with larger-than-life cabbage roses,
windows covered in snowy gauze, high ceilings,
weighted heavy tableware, rose-ornamented
china, immaculate linens and sparkling white
rattan furniture all make an upscale country-
style statement. As for the food, it is flavorful and
abundant. A hot cream of potato soup, a salad bar
with mushrooms vinaigrette, eggplant caponta,
and other goodies starts us off. The broiled fish
whitefish entree was excellent; the beef
bourguignon was ho-hum. Desserts are hard to
ignore. In this hotel tradition, everyone gets two
samplings. And who can resist Devil's food cake,
french apricot cobbler, strawberry mousse, and
more. The Hotel is popular so make your vacation
plans early. Rates include meals. Only a limited
number of outside guests can be accommodated
for a pricey lunch or dinner. Write to Athenaeum
Hotel, Chautauqua, New York 14722.
Eastward across New York and into Vermont,
an iron bridge spanning the Connecticut River
on Route 5 in Brattleboro leads to a pretty little
dockside restaurant with seating for about 40
indoors, and more on the terrace. Check it out if
you're nearby in the mood for a nosh, but don't
plan on serious eating here: food comes off
second best to the pleasant waterside view. We
ordered shrimp quiche which was made from the
briny tiny shrimp, though our waitress assured
us it would be otherwise. The cream of crabmeat
soup did not eat well. A good cream soup must be
velvety and glossy, the ingredients all smoothly
integrated. Here, a thin film of butter floated atop
a layer of cream. with a dense mass of crab
sunken on the bottom of the bowl, as though the
layers had been separately stored, and
assembled moments before they were served. But
the bread was fresh, the potato salad nicely
prepared and likewise the hamburger. So if you
spend much time in Vermont, as half of Florida
seems to do in the summer, or drive through to
Quebec on 191, keeping in mind that Brattleboro is
not home to great restaurants, you might wish to
make a note of this modest place. The West River
Volume 3 Issue 8 November 1986 Waterfront News 19
Marina Restaurant & Bar, Putney Road,
Brattleboro, Vermont. Open for early April
World-class restaurants abound in Manhattan,
most of them surrounded by concrete cliffs, and
visitors who yearn for a view of water will find
just what the captain ordered on the East River.
Feast your eyes on the million-dollar panorama,
then choose from an extensive (moderately
expensive) menu. For dinner, start with icy fresh
oysters, golden-fried clams, or seafood in puff
paste, among many other choices. Main-course
options include crab cakes, shrimp on pasta,
grilled tuna or salmon, or seasonally sauteed
softshell crabs. Among the meat choices are
duck in a lively cherry sauce, broiled lambchops,
veal scallops and thick prime ribs. The dessert
selection is super and superrich: a buttery apple
tart, creamy ice creams, and fruit-topped winey
custards. The Water Club, East River and 30th
Street, New York. 212-683-3333.

Famed Abaco Pub
by Thomas Gepfrich
Little Harbor, Albaco, Bahamas In the early
hours of June 30, 1986 Pete's Pub was destroyed
by fire. The pub, known for it's warm hospitality
and cold beer was part of the Johnston's Studio
and Foundry. The metalurgy foundry and art
studio have remained open despite the fire.
The blaze started during a treacherous
lightning storm and spread from the pub to the
small joining foundry. The Johnston Studio was
only slightly damaged.
Although the fire appeared to have started
during the lightning storm, as of press time,
Bahamian authorities were still investing the
incident. Several sources indicated that arson
had not be ruled out.

The Jay Scutti, A Ship Of Love
by Bryan Brooks
In September the Broward County
Environmental Quality Control Board sunk yet
another wreck off Broward County waters. This
particular wreck was a 97 foot tugboat. It lies in
seventy feet of water between the second and
third reef. The story behind it is a tribute to a man
who never stopped caring for his son, a son who
was killed two years ago in an automobile
accident in New York.
Dale Scutti lives in up state New York and also
spends some time here in Fort Lauderdle. His son
Jay was 27 years old and an avid scuba diver.
After the painful loss of a son, Dale wanted
something left behind that would always serve as
a memory, something he would always be able to
connect to him. So he purchased the old tug boat
at an auction and gave it to the County. Steve
Somerfield, Lou Fisher and company went to
work again to ready the tug for sinking.
The nice part of the wreck is that it is shallow
enough to safely allow for plenty of bottom time
for the scuba divers who will swarm here for
years to come. Its bow is north and stern south.
Its large prop is still on and as the years go by,
with coral growth that is sure to come, it will be a
photographers dream. Another nice feature is
that it is totally on sand, so bright sunny days and
good visibility, the photographer will be able to
use the light reflecting on the sand to help in the
quality of his or her pictures.

The tug was renamed the JAY SCUTTI and it
stands out as one swims slowly by the sides of
the ship. It is long enough to be interesting and
pretty much intact. Divers can easily and safely
get into the wheel house and other large
compartments. Instructors will find it a delight to
teach wreck diving courses, and the fish and
coral have already begun to move in.
One of the nice things that have been happening
on these county sinkings is the cooperation some
of the local dive clubs have given to Steve
Somerville and Lou Fisher, especially South
Florida Divers. Many man hours are spent free of
charge by these divers cleaning the ships so that
they can be safely and cleanly dropped to the
Mr. Scutti has a home on the beach not far
away from the final resting ilace of the tug boat
with his son's name on it. As ad;ver and father, it
would be difficult for me to think of a gesture that
serves everyone and everything alive in the
ocean so well.
Mr. Scutti's boat is not a tomb, it becomes a
spring of life and serves to undo some of the
eccological damage we have done to this most
beautiful part of our planet, the sea.
Seeing dive boats anchored over the tugboat
JAY SCUTTI from his home in north Fort
Lauderdale has got to make Dale Scutti know his
son's name Jay Scutti will not soon be forgotten.
Our hats are off again to Steve Somerville, Lou
Fisher and the South Florida Dive Club for another
job well done, and many thanks to Dale Scutti for
his giftto the divers, the coral, the fish and his son

Strange Creatures Hidden In Our Waterways
by Capt. Bill Hard
Just when you thought it was safe to go into the
water. Look first, there may be a large squilla
mantis under you, waiting.
This is what Pete Vallone of Fort Lauderdale
saw one evening while fishing from a bridge not
far from Port Everglades. Quickly Pete whipped
out his trusty landing net and captured this
monster before it could devour a portion of, our

Where The Buoys Are
by Captain Fred Edwards
They're certainly not on the beach quaffing
beer during spring break. The buoys, daymarks
and other markers are stationed along our watery
highways, trying to tell us where to go and where
not to go. But to understand them we have to
know their language. Because some of their
language is changing, a review is appropriate.
First comes a mini-vocabulary. Let's identify
floating aids to navigation as buoys, and fixed
aids as daymarks (if part of the lateral buoyage
system) and markers (if they have no lateral
The lateral buoyage system is a nationwide
arrangement that tells you which side of an aid to
pass. It will be simpler by 1989, when the Coast
Guard completes changing colors to conform
with the International Association of Lighthouse
Authorities Scheme "b" for the western
S hemisphere. Until then some aids may have either
of two colors, as we'll see below.
To use the system, a skipper needs a minimum
of an up-to-date chart and information from two
additional sources. The first is Local Notices to
Mariners, available from the Coast Guard district
office in Miami, which announce changes to the
system and reports relevant hazards to
navigation. The second is local knowledge, either
from recent experience in the area, or from
TRUSTED sources familiar with the waters.
When you're returning from seaward the key
memory aid is RED RIGHT RETURNING. This
means that, when coming from seaward, you
normally put solid red aids to starboard, and
solid black (being changed to green) aids to port.
Those with black and white (being changed to red
and white) vertical stripes generally mark safe
water in mid-channel.
Still coming from seaward, aids with black and
red horizontal bands (being changed to green to
red) identify the preferred channel by the color of
the top band. If the top band is red, your preferred
channel is to port (meaning put the aid to
starboard). If the topband is black (or green), the
opposite is true. WARNING. These horizontally-
banded buoys can be used to mark any of four
things: junctions, bifurcations in the channel,
wrecks and obstructions. A chart or local
knowledge is a must if you think the NON-
When heading out to sea, just reverse the
The "red right returning" system doesn't work
with the Intracoastal Waterway, because in
theory it doesn't go to sea or return: it parallels
the coast. Its red buoys and daymarks are
generally on the right as you proceed southward
down the Atlantic Coast, continue northward up
the west coast, and westward across the Gulf
Colors are also identified by numbers, letters
and shapes. Black (and green) aids have odd
numbers, and can be either large lighted buoys
(white lights, being changed to green),
cylindrically-shaped can buoys, or square
daymarks. Red aids have even numbers, and are
either large lighted buoys (white lights, being
changed to red), conically-shaped num buoys, or
When the vertically-striped mid-channel aids
have been changed, they either will be shaped
spherically, or will have a red spherical topmark.
They might or might not be lettered: Horizontally-
banded aids are lettered, and could be cans, nuns,
squares, triangles or lighted buoys.
Aids can be further identified by light or sound
characteristics, which are shown on the charts
and explained in publications such as Chart No. 1
(published by Defense Mapping Agency), or the
U.S. Coast Guard light list.
Now for the seemingly limitless markers that
Information and regulatory markers, normally
orange and white, are easily identified by the
written messages they contain, such as "swim
area," "no boats," etc.
Special purpose markers, now of various color
combinations, are being changed to yellow. They
mark anchorage areas, as well as spoil grounds,
fish net areas, dredging sites and military
Charted aids not established and maintained
by the Coast Guard are labeled "private". There
are also innumerable private aids that are not
charted. You may see everything from signs to
sticks and rods, used to identify hazards,
channels, anchorage areas, and special fishing
What about tying up to an aid?The general rule
is that aids to navigation, whether belonging to
the Coast Guard or privately owned, are to be
Marine Radio Use
The Federal Communications Commission is
continuing its enforcement effort to stop the
illegal use of radio channels by boat operators
along the Gulf Coast.
This action is being taken because some boat
operators are causing harmful interference to
police radio communications in the Lafayette, La.
and Gulfport, Ms. areas. The Commission is
issuing fines ranging from $600 to $1,000. The
maximum penalty for causing harmful
interference is $10,000 and one year in jail. The
fines that have been issued have been for
operation on Marine Channels 2, 3, 4, 63, 64. These
Marine Channels are ILLEGAL to use in U.S.
The Marine Channels that are designated for
use for commercial fishing vessels to conduct
fishing (business) operations are Marine
Channels 7, 8, 9, 10, 18, 19, 79, 80. 88. Further, it is
highly recommended that one watt be used on these
and all Marine VHF Channels. This will reduce
channel congestion and provide better
communication capability to the large number of
users in the area. When using the navigational
channels 13 and 67 ONE WATT IS REQUIRED under
seen and not touched.
Combine use of your chart, Local Notices to
Mariners, and local knowledge, to get the best
and safest use of all aids to navigation.

Using VHF Is A Lot More Difficult Than We Realize
i- n:11 i
Dy Bill Lange
You can believe that! Somehow all of us pick up
a handset and treat it much like a telephone. And
don't snort too soon, I can affirm that even the
"best" do things wrongly on VHF. It is very easy to
hear those "wrongs" if you listen to Channel 16 for
four hours on a busy day, and follow some of the
switches to working. All the points mentioned
herewith come from the mouths of babes, of
Citizen's Banders, of real salty vessel pilots, of
quite sharp club boaters, and of professionals
wearing nautical uniforms.
Why should we strive to do better? Because the
"lost words" of any VHF communication mean the
difference between life and death. And, secondly,
the frustrations you suffer are severe enough
when caused by electronics without sloppy mike
What area does a VHF transmission affect?
Have people led you to think that you do not reach
out enough to handicap others? Well, my
handheld with simple rubber duck, no special
power or antenna, frequently gives me loud and
clear: Key West to Mayport, and as far east as
boats vicinity Nassau northwart do N27.4 at
W079.2. Yes, an insistent playboy-dock-seeker
can drown out the otherwise audible urgent call.
It is no excuse to admit that in the height of
excitement, or urgency, or anger, or greeting a
great friend the communicator can commit these
"wrongs". You and I have got to "straighten up
and fly right" when using the mike. What
CASEALPHA. A mike is left open or the carrier
is somehow fixed in transmit. This occurs often
on Channel 16 and sometimes for many hours.
The Calling and Distress Channel is thus blocked
and all are inconvenienced or even worse. Easy to
cure, easy to prevent---whether in use or not
check your set controls hourly.
CASE BRA VO. A good initial contact is lost. There
are several versions of this and each results in
quite a few call-backs by each radio, frequently a
lengthy use of Channel 16, and sometimes the
caller never gets contact again. In the latter
version I have heard an urgent safety or
navigational problem forced off 16 "because that

is conversation" but after the shift to a working
channel the caller never came up and for a
frightening period of time remained unheard
anywhere. So if there is a real safety aspect get
the essential word out before trying to switch
The more frequent version is that the
answering station says shift to numbered
working channel, and switches over but the caller
did not hear the order. Or did not have that
channel. Or has trouble switching. Be sure that
the caller heard your order and agrees to the
switch. Also agree if there is no contact that the
caller will return to 16. Often one hears "Roger" or
"Charlie" but neither are clear or mean what
should be used, namely "WILCO". Even the
uniformed professionals seem to think "roger"
means "wilco". It doesn't.
And in this last version often both ends of the
communication switch back and forth, walking
over each other, several times until finally one
side slows down and hangs back on 16. Bobbled
"comm" of this latter type loses many minutes for
both, and uses air space often needed by others.
The "Wilco, over" or the "Wait, over" need
confirmation such as "Roger out".
CASE CHARLIE. Use standard VHF voice
terminology and procedures, whether in
transmission, reply, or relay. And think "this is
one way, subject to blockage, how clear am I?". I
have heard every category of bobble by
continuing on Channel 16 when he or she had
agreed to shift. I have heard vague calls such as
"tanker southbound from tug and tow...etc" but
no name or location, or "vessel behind, I am
sailboat, do you see tne?" when the. call might be
received anywhere from FoweyRocksto off Palm
Beach. Sometimes there was naturally no
answer, sometimes there was a confusion as the
answer turned out to be very far from the
Several times any busy boating period you'll
hear the severe violation of FCC rules for boaters.
Such as forgetting to shift a working channel until
there is a growl aimed at the sender. Or just as
bad the call repeated and repeated, not observing
the 30 seconds per call or the two minutes pause
before repeat call rules. NOW HEAR THIS! You

When they couldn't agree on whether to spend
their vacation sailing or driving, seven Swedes
decided to remodel a Mercedes 220 into a boat.
"Half the gang wanted to spend the vacation
sailing, the others wanted to go by car, so we had
to figure out something," Gunnar Haraldson,
driver-skipper, told the daily Goteborgs
Tidningen. A week was spent.by the group sealing
the car chassis and house trailer with plastic and
replacing the car engine with an outboard motor.
On its maiden voyage, the seaworthy vessel was
allowed to dock Mediterrean style for free by the
quay. The harbormaster said he didn't know what
to charge. The sailors christened their car-boat

'NEW' outdoor cleaning
power for boats and

Notso long ago we used a brush and dust pan to clean
around the house. Nowadays the vacuum cleaner is L-
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 i
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.

New Mackerel Rule
Supported by recreational fisherman, a new
Spanish Mackerel rule, formulated by the Florida
Marine Fisheries Commission, was unanimously
approved by Governor Bob Graham and the
Cabinet last month.
The new rule will have become law October 30.
It is aimed at reducing the Spanish mackerel
catch by 45 percent.
The new rule set a bag limit of four Spanish
mackerel per day for recreational fishermen.
Commercial fishing for Spanish mackerel with
netboats of 40 feet in length or more with power-
assisted gillnets is prohibited from November 1
through December 15 each year. Commercial
netting of Spanish mackerel with any size boat or
net is prohibited on weekends. The new Spanish
mackerel rule sets a minimum mesh size for
gillnets to allow escape by juvenile mackerel.
Dade and Palm Beach Counties closed to roller-rig
netboats joining Broward which was already

New Beach Management Law
by Marilyn Damon
On September 24, 25 and 26th I attended the
annual meeting of Florida Shore and Beach
Preservation Association on Captiva Island. The
Beach Management Bill CS/SB432 passed the
Legislature. It was guided through the Legislature
by Senator George Stuart and Representative
James Ward. As the most significant legislation
ever enacted in beach preservation in Florida, the
program will completely change the way beach
projects are selected and funded.
The first step in implementing the law will be a
detailed study of Florida's erosion problem bythe
Division of Beaches and Shores. Out of this study
will come an identification of priorities for beach
restoration projects over the coming decade. The
new law contains criteria to identify the most
worthwhile and cost effective projects. The
a) identification of need based on estimated
public use of the restored beach
b) The projected dollar loss to coastal
properties if the project is not built
c) The prospect of long-term success of the
d) The degree of public access
e) The extent of public support
f) The environmental impact
The new law also gives the state two
important new tools to help reduce the erosion
problem. One is a provision for establishing
"feeder beaches" to increase sand flow along the
shoreline. Another is a requirement that
navigation inlet districts must replace sand lost
from the system as a result of navigation
channels. The law directs DNR to measure the
annual sand loss at each inlet. Inlet districts will
then be required to replace an equivalent amount
of sand each year downstream from the inlet. The
new law calls for a partnership between state and
local government in beach preservation.
Up to now the decision as to whether or not to
initiate a beach project was strictly up to local
government. But under the new law the
Department of Natural Resource, in consultation
with local government, will establish priorities on
beach restoration projects.
Highlights of the New Beach Management Law;
1. Address long-term solutions to the problem of
Florida's critically eroding beaches.
2. Evaluate each navigation inlet to determine
whether it is a significant cause of erosion and
recommend ways to offset such erosion.
3. Specify design criteria for beach restoration
and renourishment projects.
4. Evaluate the establishment of "feeder beaches"
as an alternative to beach restoration projects.
5. Establish priorities for beach restoration/re-
nourishment projects based on criteria set by
As coastal chairman of the Broward Soil and
Water Conservation District, I stress preventive
erosion control. Revegetate the beaches we have
now, before they get to a point where they have to
be renourished. For those beaches that need
renourishment, once the sand is pumped up on
the beaches, revegetate the new beach to keep
the sand from eroding.
For assistance, technical advice, Amdro tor fire
ants, or Compost, please call the Broward Soil
and Water Conservation District at 584-1306.
