Why is it that out of the blue the City of Fort
Lauderdale decides to enforce an anti-boater
ordinance, a law that has been ignored for years?
I'm referring to the prohibition of dock rentals in
residential waterfront neighborhoods and the

past two issues of your paper on that subject.
Is it politics? Economics? The Sheriff's friends,

I heard a whistling and popping noise in my
engine and found a burnt hole where the heat tube
to my choke on the carburetor was. Do I need a
new manifold or can this be repaired?
A new manifold costs bucks and a used one
may be defective. That hole can b e repaired in
many ways: epoxy or iron weld, there are many
mixtures that can be used. If you still want to use
your choke, you can buy an electric or manual
choke or a clamp-on heat tube to the existing unit.
Your choke makes for easier starting and
warmup. But you can learn to operate without it.
Have a hydraulic steering system on my boat,
also hyrdraulic lifts on my trim tabs. I have leaks
on my units. There have conflicting answers on
what oil to replace it with. Can you help on what
type to replace with.
I have had a few letters on this same question.
Usually the manufacturer will give you the specs'
on the oil to use. Here is what I go by. The red oil
on trim tabs or steering units is "A200" oil or
power steering oil. If you have a clear or amber oil
leak, hydraulic fluid is the answer. Most units
that are over five years old do have seepage and
that can mean lines and repair work.

Sheriff makes wake in Lighthouse Point
by Nathan L. Roberts
He's done it again this time legally, he says.
No, it's still not legal because a public hearing
on the issue has not been held, says the City of
At issue is-Broward Sheriff Nick Navarro's
posting nine "No Wake, Idle Speed" signs along
a mile-long stretch of the Intracoastal Waterway
between markers 68 and 69 in Lighthouse
The reason given for this second posting of the
contested signs is the same that was offered by.
the Sheriff in July, namely, to promote boating
safety, what with a record of 20 accidents on the
When the signs were posted last summer, the
Florida Marine Patrol, which is a division of the
Department of Natural Resources (DNR), called on
Navarro to remove them since no permit had been
issued to put them up. The signs were removed in
August, to the relief of boaters. "Idle Speed," as
defined by the U.S. Coast Guard Station at Fort
Lauderdale, "is the minimum speed necessary to
maintain control over a boat." The idle speed
varies with the type of boat.
The boating community in and near Lighthouse
Point is upset with Navarro's action. For his part,
he points out that he asked the Broward County
Commission to request permission of the DNR to
post the ICW in Lighthouse Point and both the
commission and the DNR complied.
Lighthouse Point Mayor Albert Fletcher, Jr.,
who went to the mat with Navarro in Julyto force
removal of the signs although the Sheriff claims
he was not ordered to take them down but did so
voluntarily- has protested the signs as illegal
because not a single local public hearing has
been held on the matter. Navarro, as h.e did in
July, Mayor Fletcher says, has acted in
November "mysteriously, quietly," with no
hearing and no advance notice to Broward
One hearing, however, was held on Oct. 7 in
"The only one who had any input is Sheriff
Navarro," Fletcher adds.
The Mayor has written twice to the Broward
County Commission protesting that no public
hearing has been held on the signs. As of mid-
December, he had yet to receive a reply. His
specific request is that "Enforcement be abated
until a public hearing has been held.."
Perhaps the most damaging charge againstthe
parties involved in the authorization process that
brought the signs into being is the one levelled by
a Reserve U.S. Coast Guard Captain who is also a
Hillsboro Beach fire fighter and former resident
of Lighthouse Point now living in Pompano
Ken Steel charges that "if boating safety is the
rationale for establishing the No Wake Zone, the
County Commission and by implication, the DNR,
have been led down the garden path."
Of the 20 boating accidents cited as the reason
for the No Wake Zone, Steel asserts, 14 took place
in other waters, five of the remaining six were
either near misses or flounders and one was a
literal self-destructing. The actual score, Steel
says, "is zero accidents."
Steel met with Navarro in early December but
found the Sheriff "obdurate."

"He's stonewalling on this issue and won't
discuss it, period."
Navarro's determination t.o have the
Lighthouse Point area of the ICW posted as a No
Wake Zone has more to do with the Sheriff's
desire to please his wealthy, boat-owning friends
in the district, according to various boaters. Ken
Steel agrees. All point out that four of the Sheriff's
nine signs are bunched near the 54-foot "Gallant
Lady," a $1 million yacht owned by James M.
Moran, owner of JM Pontiac Hollywood and
Southeast Toyota of Deerfield, Beach, the latter
the distributor of the popular Japanese car
through the southeast. Moran's enterprises
contributed more than $15,000 to Navarro's
successful 1984 campaign to unseat Sheriff
Frances Marsh. the Lighthouse Point City
Clerk, reports that "the local boating community
is pretty solidly against the No Wake signs. The
boaters are for a reasonable speed, not idle
speed." she says.
Marsh notes that the Lighthouse Point Town
Commission adopted a resolution against the
signs and sent it to the County Commission,
with copies of Mayor Fletcher's letters and the
resolution forwarded to County Commissioner
Sylvia Poitier, who lives in neighboring Deerfield
Ken Steel's summation is this: "Since nothing
on the Intracoastal is broke, why has it become
necessary to fix anything.?"

The Nautical Mile
by James E. Sullivan
There are two milage systems used in the
United States: the statute or land mile, and the
nautical or sea mile. This article will examine and
comment on these methods.
Statute is an established rule or law. The
statute mile is the English and American standard
linear measure and was defined by an Act passed
in the 35th year of the reign of "Good Queen Bess"
to be 8 furlongs of 40 perches of 16.5 feet each or
5,280 feet. The statute mile is generally used on
land, however this mile is also used on inland
bodies of water such as the Mississippi River, the
Great Lakes, and the Intracoastal Waterways.
The statute mile is not associated with the size of
the earth whereas the nautical mile is.
The basic unit of measurement in the
navigation of vessels and aircraft is the nautical
mile. For navigational purposes the nautical mile
is considered the length of one minute of latitude
or of one minute of any great circle of the earth.
So the size of the earth is found by multiplying the
size of a great circle of 3600 times the number of
minutes in a degree (60) resulting in 21,600
minutes or nautical miles. Because the earth is
not round (it is an oblate period being flattened
at the poles to form an ellipsoid) it was difficultto
accurately measure the length of these minutes.
The real length of a nautical mile is 6107.8 feet at
the poles. and 6046.4 feet at the equator. For
convenience a practical unit of length was
adopted as 6,076.1. To navigators the errors
which may arise from this approximation are
usually negligible. Since all meridians are great
circles, these are used to measure distances on
a chart. Span the dividers to cover the distance
and use the sides of the chartto countthe minutes
spanned. Except in the case of the equator all
parallels are small circles and are not used to find
For comparison purposes the nautical mile
equals 1.15th of a statute mile while the statute is
.85th of a nautical mile. It is common practice to
treat the nautical mile as 2000 yards in length.
One tenth of a nautical mile is called a cable which
by usage is 600 feet (100 fathoms). A knot is a
speed of one nautical mile per hour.

Community College are offering a marine
electronic navigation course for six weeks
beginning January 26, 1987, 7:00 p.m. Tuition is
$18. The study will stress radio navigation to

Crime Alert for boaters
by M.G. Swift
Boaters are no strangers to crime. Out-board
engines stripped from dinghies, liveaboards;
homes ransacked, yachts "disappear" the
waterfront knows lawlessness well. Recognizing
this, the City of Ft. Laudedale is planning to offer
the boating public a second seminar on "Crime
Alert" for boaters, 7 p.m., January 14, 1987 at
Nathaniel's New River Tavern next door to the city
dockmaster's office on South New Drive just east
of the Andrews Avenue Bridge.
Fort Lauderdale Police Department personnel
and the Dockmaster's Office, will present a
program to the waterfront community
emphasizing neighborhood organization and
security systems geared primarily for
liveaboards, according to Captain Jeffery
Schulten. The city's marine facilities supervisor,
Jamie Hart, who, along with Capt. Schulten, is
coordinating the boating crime prevention
meeting hopes that boaters can employ
techniques shown to be successful in many Fort
Officers of the city marine patrol and local
Citizen's Crime Alert advocate, Joyce Quinby will
participate in the evenings workshop. Planners
hope a significant segment of the area's
liveaboard community will participate in this
program for marine crime alert.
New boating safety
board game unveiled
Youngsters learning to fish can also pick up
some of the basics of-boating safety, thanks to a
new board game recently published.
"My Fishing Buddies," featuring Mr. Bass, was
recently unveiled by its creator, John Aitken,
whose successful children's game "Don't Talk to
Strangers" sold a half-million copies.
"My Fishing Buddies" uses the theme of a fun-
filled boating and fishing trip to teach children
safe boating practices. Players roll dice to move
game pieces around a game board and
accumulate points (pounds of catch) along the
way. Mr. Bass awards players extra points for
correctly answering boating safety questions.
The player who reels in the most pounds of catch
wins the game.
The game is designed for children ages 4 and
up. Playing together, both kids and parents can
learn fundamental safe boating practices such as
wearing life jackets and how to safely get in and
out of a boat.
"My Fishing Buddies" is expected to be on store
shelves this holiday season. Included with the
game set is safety literature, a boat-habdling
decal and a boating safety key chain.

Trans-Atlantic Race Planned
MONTVALE, N.J., Dec. 10 -- The BOC Group
announced today that it will sponsor a trans-
Atlantic race for monohull yachts from New York
to Plymouth next year. The race will start on June
4, 1987, following completion of the current BOC
Challenge single-handed round-the-world race
which is expected to end in Newport, Rhode
Island, in May.
The new race is called The BOC Blue Riband
Challenge. Competing yachts will attempt to
break the monohull record of just over 12days for
a crossing from Ambrose Light Tower to the
Lizard Cornwall. The record was set in 1906 by the
"With modern unrestricted boats and
exceptionally well-qualified skippers, such as
those competing in the current BOC single-
handed round-the-world race, the record is
definitely breakable," says Robin Knox-Johnston,
chairman of The BOC Challenge Race Committee.
"Several of the BOC boats have been averaging
well over 12 knots, and something over 10 knots
is what it will take to break the record. The BOC
Blue Riband will be the first-ever organized race
to attempt this monohull record."
There will be two classes in The BOC Blue
Riband Challenge for boats of 40-50feet 1.o.a.and
50-60 feet 1.o.a. There will be no restriction on
sponsor identification on hulls and sails.
The race will be open to all competitors in The
BOC Challenge. The organizers may also extend
invitations to other yachtsmen. This, and other
details including the Rules and Conditions of the
Race, will be decided and announced early in the
Prizes for this race will be awarded by BOC
Limited, the U.K. subsidiary of The BOC Group,
and by the City of Plymouth. The City of Plymouth
and BOC Limited will host the yachtsmen while
they are in port. The City will provide berthing at
Queen Anne's Battery, help to promote the event
and host a civic reception for the competitors.
"Plymouth has been able to attract another
great sailing event to the City. We are absolutely
delighted," said CouncillorTony Parish, chairman
of the Leisure Services Committee, City of
In the U.S., the boats will be hosted by the
Atlantic Highlands Yacht Club, near New York,
after a sprint race from Newport, Rhode Island.

Quick passage to Florida's West Coast
by Pat Rand Rose
If your time is limited and you want the fastest
possible passage between the east and west
coasts of Florida, the Okeechobee Waterway is
your answer. Its 156-mile length crosses Florida
from Stuart to the beginning of the west coast
Intracoastal Waterway, 21 miles west of Ft.
Myers. Although your original purpose may have
been to save time, what you will discover in your
dash between coasts, is an unusual and
The Okeechobee Waterway consists of the 38-
mile St. Lucie Canal, which runs into Lake
Okeechobee, then continues from the lake as the
Caloosahatchee Canal and River, ending in the
Gulf of Mexico. It runs through pastoral fields,
ranches, orange groves, past both growing cities
and sleepy villages. It is intriguing to look out
from the deck of a boat under sail and see cattle
grazing, oranges being harvested, alligators,
manatees, anhingas, mangroves, spanish moss,
palmettos, and ploughed fields. It is an aspect of
Florida we often do not see, especially by boat.
Transient dock space is available all along the
waterway and anchorages abound.
The jewels of the Okeechobee Waterway are
her five locks. They are modern, spacious, well
thought out, and superbly handled. They open
between 6 AM and 9:30 PM, responding to one
long and one short blast of the horn. In case a
lengthy wait or overnight stay is required, there
are places to tie up outside the locks. Your
passage through the locks is so well thought out,
you will need no special protective equipment;
even lines are available for tying up inside each
lock. Lockmasters are patient and helpful. The St.
Lucie Lock raises a boat fifteen feet in one easy
stage, but the locks on the west side of the lake
lower a boat in three separate stages. The exact
levels depend on the depth of the lake.
Anything that floats can navigate the locks.
This includes rowboats, tugs, cruisers, sailboats,
even manatees, who are occasionally locked
through by accommodating lockmasters.
When planning your cruise, remember that you
will be limited to an overhead clearance of 49 ft.
by the railroad bridge at Port Mayaca. (If you
wish to have your mast unstepped, facilities for
this service are available at Stuart and
Indiantown). The controlling depth depends on
which route you choose. The fastest route is
directly across Lake Okeechobee from Port
Mayaca to Clewiston, with a depth of 8 ft. This
route is 10 miles shorter but not as scenic as
traveling along the east and south shoreline of
the lake, where the controlling depth is 6 ft.
Depths are more shallow in the spring and during
periods of extended drought, so call the Corps of
Engineers or the Lockmaster at the beginning of
your route before you begin your cruise to
determine if the water is at normal depths, and if
all the locks are open. One lock closed for repairs
essentially closes the entire waterway 'for

The President's yacht spends holiday on New River
by Beth Harnden
Fort Lauderdale was fortunate to have the
Presidential Yacht, USS Sequoia, docked in her
backyard.during the holidays. The yacht was
available for public touring December 18 and 19.
The Sequoia was built in 1925, and began her
service as a presidential retreat and meeting
place when Herbert Hoover had her
commissioned USS Sequoia and Presidential
Yacht in early 1933.
Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower,
Kennedy, Johnson,- Nixon and Ford found the
Sequoia perfect for many purposes, from family
gatherings to war strategy planning sessions.
In 1976, President sold the Sequoia fora mere
$286,000, claiming she was an unnecessary
expense. During the next four years, the once
beautiful Sequoia was exploited as a public or
commercial attraction, eventually becoming a
cocktail lounge at a waterside restaurant.
In 1981, the Presidential Yacht Trust was
created, which through generous contributions
by the American people, purchased and returned
the Sequoia to Washington for preservation as a
historical landmark. Renovations began in the
fall of 1984.
Sequoia is now available for national touring,
complete with the most contemporary engineer-
ing system, yet retaining the historical
appearance of the yacht.
Inside, one finds elegant yet simple furnishings
that would make those with even the most
modest tastes feel at home.
One of the most beautiful features of the
Sequoia is the finished wood throughout: teak on
- n-.. n .. Ei
the exterior and tiger-striped mohoghany in the
Touring the Sequoia is like taking a history
lesson. Throughout the yacht are photographs
taken during events held on board. One shows
Kennedy's family in the dining room, celebrating
his 46th birthday the last birthday he celebrated
before his assassination.
photo by Greg Dellinger
Captain Giles M. Kelley, commanding the
Sequoia since April of 1983, said, "It is important
to us that the people hear about and see the
"After all, the Sequoia is "America's Yacht",
and the American people are responsible for
bringing her back to life, and seeing that she
remains a floating symbol of our patriotism."

U Boat convention in Key Largo
by Bryan Brooks
Artificial Reef Loran Fixes
Broward County Artificial Reef Program
Broward County Environmental Quality Control Board
Erosion Prevention District
From February 1 through February 5 in 1986 a
club named SHARKHUNTERS will have its first
annual convention in Florida. The convention site
will be at the Howard Johnson's in Key Largo.
The club was started by a man in Chicago
named Harry Cooper. He was motivated by the
historical aspects of the U Boat during World War
II. Interested historians and participants from all
over the world have joined the club and many are
scheduled to come to the convention. Also
scheduled to come are submarine commanders
from our own American subs.
Included in the schedule are talks by the U Boat
commanders and American sub captains. Films
from submarine action taken during the war and
relic swaps are on tap. Much of the interest from
historical aspects, will be the ability to talk to
these men of history.
A dive trip to the Benwood wreck off Key Largo
is included. The Benwood was sunk by a U Boat
and thousands of divers from around the world
can attest to the beautiful wreck, complete with
tropical fish, and coral reef that it has become.
Sharkhunters was formed by Mr. Cooper to
help locate and preserve the German U Boats that
were sunk. Many of them are off the coast of the
United States. Those of us who were raised in
south Florida grew up with the legends of one
sunk off Fort Lauderdale. I have talked to about
five people who say they have seen the
mysterious sub. The problem is they have all seen
it in different places. The one thing that I can
confirm is that they indeed were here off our
coast during the war. Several old timers attest to
seeing burning tankers off Fort Lauderdale. It

apparently was their method to surface at night
on the inside of the Gulfstream, and wait for the
tankers coming through the Florida Straits going
north to our northeast or Europe.
Skin Diver Magazine, in 1967, ran a photo of a
supposed sub off Fort Lauderdale in a hundred
feet of water. The photo was a little hazy. The
photographer was a man named Ed Malinowski,
who owned a dive shop in Fort Lauderdale during
the 1960's and early 70's. Attempts to locate
Malinowski have been fruitless.
The submarine exists only in my mind,
according to Mr. Cooper of SHARKHUNTERS. This
is probably true, but it makes for interesting
conversation over beers.
Some interesting people belong to
SHARKHUNTERS. Among them are Hugh Downs
and Ted Turner. It is unknown whether they will
attend the convention.

The club was formed, not to establish right or
wrong during the war, only historically, that
valiant men on both sides fought well for their
country. From a personal point of view, I joined
the club because of a burning interest in that
period of the world's history. Hopefully, there will
never be another war. I have to believe that

From tomatoes to toilet tissue
by Capt. Al Plant
When we go shopping for groceries we fill our
shopping cart up with our favorite foods and
household essentials and wheel through the
check out. That's simple enough. But what does it
take to go shopping for a shipload of passengers
on an ocean cruise?
Since every year more and more ships are
coming on stream and are making Port
Everglades their home, the ship's chandlery
business is growing. You might not even be able
to find the word chandlerin some dictionaries but
the gathering and distribution of steamship
supplies still goes on.
Harry Santos, a former Tugboat Captain out of
Charleston Harbor, is a talking history book of
how it was and how it is today in the chandlery
business' He was selling goods to ocean vessels
out of the back seat of his automobile some 35
years ago when service meant everything to
make the sale. Now it's mainly price that
determines who gets the sale to the ships. Cruise
ships, cargo liners, container ships and freighters
all are Santos's customers.
Today's operation, controlled from the central
office, across the street from the Waterfront
Photos by Julie
News on SW 1st Ave. in Ft. Lauderdale, is high
tech compared to those days when Harry met the
ships at the pier. Most of the orders are made in
advance and come in by telex, telephone or by
photo fax. Harold Fogt supervises the staff of 36
who process the orders. There are no holidays
here with ships arriving in port 24 hours a day,
every day. Deliveries can also be made to ships
enroute past the sea bouy or in the anchorage.
Santos has four divisions: Food, Hotel
supplies, In Bond & Technical..An order is sent
through all these divisions if a variety of supplies
is needed. Cases of butter from Ireland line one
wall of the refrigerator room. Hand soaps with the
Vistafjord emblem are stacked in boxes on a
pallet in the dry stores. Cases of brand name
spirits, cigarettes and beer are ready to be moved
from the in-bond area. Christmas trees, tons of
rice and flour and 180 cases of eggs with30 dozen
in each along with drums of lubricating oil stand
on pallets ready to move from the staging area to
the waiting semi truck that will haul this order to
Truck loads of groceries go on board.
the pier at the port where the Vistafjord is
There is still a lot of personal touch left in the
Santos operation though. People like Alexis
Orihuela, the runner, another ancient title still
held over from the age of sail, make it that way.
He is a salesman. He goes to the ships when they
arrive, as any good salesman would, to see if the
Purser, Engineer, Captain or anyone else has
additions to the previously-placed order. This
morning Alexis will also drive one of the crew
members to do some banking, get a haircut and
other personal errands. It's all part of the job.
Competition is tough and the ability to provide
hard-to-get items has made Santos popular
among the cruise lines. Some ships go in for
ethnic dining and Santos supplies Indonesian and
Asian delicacies as well as caviar from Iran.
The next time you have to stock up on groceries
won't it seem easy compared to lifting pallet after
pallet of supplies onto a cruise ship the way
Santos does everyday of the year.

Port buys 36 acres from Hollywood, Inc.
by Nathan L. Roberts
Port Everglades and Hollywood, Inc., have
finally come to terms over division of the 91
waterfront acres that the port has coveted at the
point where the Dania Cut-Off Canal empties into
the Intracoastal Waterway.
In a 5-2 vote, Port Commissioners in mid-
November elected to purchase 36 of the 91 acres
for $19.5 million. The vote ends a two-year hassle
over the property and sets the stage for an early
start -- probably this month -- on development of
the newly acquired acreage into a much needed
containerized cargo terminal.
The acreage gives the port 800 feet along the
ICW and 1,550 feet along the Dania Canal.
Hollywood Inc's 55 remaining acres take up 3,200
feet fronting the canal.
The port's decision to buy the acreage caps six
months of negotiations marked by
disagreements among the commissioners over
the Hollywood, Inc., price and whether or not to
end the negotiation and seize the property
through an eminent domain (condemnation)
already pending in Broward Circuit Court. The
vote to purchase was not unanimous but the
agreement to buy the36 acres ends the port's suit.
A part of the deal provides that the port will pay
for dredging the Dania Canal along the length of
its own and the Hollywood., Inc., property.
Although the port commission balked at the
Hollywood., Inc., price of $22.5 million for 38
acres one week before it took its vote to buy,
Commissioner Jean Fitzgerald noted that the cost
of dredging the canal will put the actual cost or
buying the acreage higher than the $19.5 million
Development of the cargo terminal will more
than double the port's cargo handling capacity.
The commissioners and the new port director, C.
Thomas Burke, are sanguine that Port Everglades
is now in a position to challenge the long-
standing status of the Port of Miami as South
Florida's premier harbor.
Hollywood, Inc., for its part, has not yet settled
on what to do with its share of the acreage. Earlier
this year, it abandoned a plan to use the full 91

Hollywood Mayor Mara Guilianti, who opposed
the port's drive to acquire the 91 acres on the
grounds that it would cut into the city's tax base
with no prospect of ever-realizing income
property taxes now gives gruging support to the
compromise arrangement. She says the 36 acres

by Hollywood, Inc., which she hopes will take
Port Commissioners voting to buy the 36 acres
were Jean Fitzgerald, who is the Commission's
chairman, Joseph DeLilo, who is the new deputy
chairman, Alan Marks, Herb Myers and newly
elected Betsy Krant. Opposed were Walter
Browne and Mike Marinelli, the outgoing
chairman. DeLiLo took an active part in the
negotiation with Hollywood., Inc.
Funds for development of the cargo terminal
will come out of a $105 million bond issue being
floated by the Wall Street underwriting firm of
Drexel Burnham Lambert. The terminal will have
three motorized cranes, cargo docks,
warehouses, garages, railroad tracks connecting
with the Florida EastCoast Railroad, ampleyards
for the stacking of cargo containers, afire station
and security post, among other facilities.
Stuart Boat Show '87
STUART, FL -- The Marine industries Association
of Martin County and the Treasure Coast expects
the 1987 STUART BOAT SHOW, January 30th -
February 1st, to be the best ever. Last year's
show boasted over 125 exhibitors occupying
more than 110 booths and 85,000 square feet of
outside exhibit space.
"We have seen a big jump in inquired about the
show," reports manager John Good. "The Stuart
Boat Show" has always been one of the most
enjoyable in South Florida and each year it has
grown both in size and quality of exhibits. Based
on our early commit ments for'87, it looks like we
will see a noticeable increase in the size and
number of boats on display."
The Martin County Fairgrounds, in the heart of
Stuart, is the long-time home of the show. The
Fairgrounds is ideally suited to display marine
products, with accessory exhibits inside
permanent buildings and boats attractively
displayed throughout the surrounding grounds.
* WOOD & FIBERGLASS REPAIRS
The Stuart Sailfish Club's fishing clinics, the
Angler's Guide popular casting contest, plus a
series of other how-to seminars have highlighted
past shows and will continue to be a major
"The Stuart Boat Show is the one of the
Treasure Coast's biggest events, and its impact is
felt all year," comments MIA president Dave
Lowe. "Not only is it a big boost to business for
participating exhibitors, it is also an important
source of revenue for our association. In the last
few years, it has allowed us to make significant
contributions to boating facility improvement,
local marine research and educational projects,
and gives us the strength needed to deal with
legislative matters that affect the entire boating
Show hours are Friday, 12:00n 9:00pm,

Lauderdale Isles Yacht & Tennis Club is
situated in the S.W. section of Ft. Lauderdale in
the unincorporated area of Broward County. Built
approximately in 1956, with just a small pavilion,
it is located along the river bank of the wooded
and picturesque South New River Canal.
Nestled back along the river bank on 2637
Whale Harbor Lane it struggles to keep its serene,
lazy Florida style environment despite of the
present construction of 1-595.
For almost 30 years Lauderdale Isles Yacht &
Tennis Club has played a very important role in
the community in civic and environmental issues.
The Yacht Club has been the meeting place for the
Lauderdale Isles Civic Improvement Association,
which keeps residents informed on what is
happening in their community.
The first public election of the Lauderdale Isles
Water Management District was held attheYacht
Club in 1970. Many residents and club members
actively peti!tionedto set up their own taxing
district to help keep our waterways clean. They
initiated one of the first waterway clean ups long
before it became a Broward County project.
The club members.and community residents
also participated in the long fight to save and
preserve what is now the "Secret Woods". Using
the club as a meeting place, the community,along
with the Civic Associationa stopped the

Club facilities have been donated many times
to help the community participate in civic and
environmental issues. One of particular
importance was the Fund Raiser Carnival in 1984
to help the South Broward Citizens for a Better
Environment raise money to pay for the legal fees
to fight the construction of the garbage
incinerator at State Road 7 and 84.
The Yacht Club is very active with many social
events during the year which include the annual
"Santa Claus Boat" which rides up an down the
canals, with all the Board Members, singing
Christmas Carols and throwing candy canes to
enthusiastic spectators. In addition to all the
usual Holiday events during the year, the Yacht
Club has a very active Little Theatre Group that
puts on Fall and Spring productions which are
open to the public.
Over the years the Yacht Club has grown from a
small pavilion to a Club House, Tennis Courts,
Pool, Sauna, Picnic grounds, Exercise and Weight
Room, and dining and wining facilities.
The Club members continue their interest in
civic affairs and are willing to let civic
associations use the facility for meetings related
to civic and environmental issues.

Want to know where you can go for great
music? Dancing and seafood and great music? On
a canal with outside seating and great music?
Tugboat Annie's! They are located on the Dania
cut-off in Dania, of course.
The environs are strictly nautical. Lots of ropes
and lobster boxes hanging from the ceiling. The
floor is wood planking, the smell is pure South
Florida raw bar. Oh, yeah, the music is, ah, great.
A trio of fine, young, talented musicians, who
call themselves IN ONE EAR include Tony
Lavendar, drums; John Eatmon, electric bass;
and Ron Perrillo, keyboards.
Mostly jazz, these three offer up some straight
ahead tunes, not often heard in local clubs, and
easy rock tunes that some bands cannot and
should not try to offer. But it's the arrangement
and delivery of these tunes that sets IN ONE EAR
apart from the rest of those trying-to-make-it
bands. Lavendar's vocal rendition of Morrison's
"Brown Eyed Girl" was superb, while Perrillo's
arrangement of Grover Washington's "Mister
Magic".(on keyboards, mind you) was excellent.
All sounded great on James Taylor's "Suzanne",
following Eatmon's lead vocals.
Perrillo and Eatmon used to play together up at
Pompano's Best Seller and Eatmon and Lavendar
have been friends and co-players for about a year
now. Together these three fill Tugboat Annie's
with good, quality entertainment.
IN ONE EAR is not to be missed but you had
better catch them now, because management is
soon to wisk them off to Boca Raton to open their
new club. (Rumor has it sometime in February).
In short, IN ONE EAR is a boon to this quaint, ou-
of-the-way, otherwise overlooked South Florida
One of the hottest bands around today is
BREEZE. It's a hard rockin', sweet soundin' group
serving up classic rock from the 60's, 7.0's, and
Roy Rauschenberg is the catalyst, playing lead
guitar and is a phenomenal vocal impressionist.,
If you are not watching the stage, Roy's ability
and extraordinary talent will trick you into
thinking the original artist is performing, or that
there is a tape player on somewhere.

London-- You know you're in a Yuppie world
when the young woman seated across from you
on the canal boat orders a Perrier while a BMW
drives over the bridge just ahead and a runner
jogs past on the towpath.
Welcome to London's Little Venice, a quiet,
secluded Regent's Canal community, less than

'FARNWOR TH' A WIDE BOA T ON THE GRAND UNION CANAL
three miles west of bustling Piccadilly Circus. It's
a triangular stretch of water where Regent's
Canal meets Paddington Basin and the
Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal.
Here young professionals and artistic types
have found the joy of living canalside on ancient
barges and a kind of vessel unique to England, the
elongated, brightly decorated narrowboat.
Alex and Jan Prowse live aboard a barge which
for them bears a highly: descriptive name--
Cascade Art Gallery. Bearded Alex is an artist
who specializes in scenes depicting England's
rich and varied canal world.
The barge, 72 feet long, 14 feet three inches
wide, with a draft of just nine inches, serves as
studio and art gallery. It also, provides the'
Prowses and a hefty Rhodesian ridgeback with a
comfortable year-round home.
The art gallery is located at the bow. Abaft of
the gallery are a galley/dining/living area, head
and three cabins.

Alex's watercolors and line drawings are of
such quality that he was able to mount a one-man
show in Caracas, Venezuela last year. He does
not, however, have the field all to himself.
Canal art has become a popular genre. Last
August a Canal Narrowboat Folk Art Summer
School was held at a college near the confluence
of the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canals.
The Prowses are Londoners who grew up near
canals, then found their way back after they were
married. Two years ago they acquired the barge
as part of a complicated deal. A boat yard putthe
steel hull, built in 1930, in good shape, and the
interior they reworked to fit their plans for a

U.S. amount varying with fluctuations in the
The barge is so stable that the modest wakes in
the canal have no effect. Nor does the ice that
forms on the canal in the London winter. Ice does,
however, create one small problem.
"It sounds horrible, scraping against the hull,"
says Jan Prowse," but it doesn't hurt the steel. We
had four-five inches of ice last winter. It can be a
bit bleak in the winter."
But, says Jan, they wouldn't want to leave
Little Venice. "I don'tthink a million pounds would
make us move."
Visitors to London can see Little Venice at its,
best on a delightful 1 1/2 hour Regent's Canal
cruise, on the brightly decorated narrowboat,
For nearly a half century the boat, built in 1906,
hauled oil, lime juice, timber and coal. In 1951 as
part of the Festival of Britian, it was reworked-to
provide London's first canal pleasure cruise.
Its present owners, Marilyn Warman and Tony
Hopkins, bought the company in 1977. Marilyn
had'worked for a hotel chain; Tony ran a ski
"We were both novices," said Warman. "Canal
people and people on houseboats are a close knit
community. It took months for us to be accepted."

Trip, which cruises from Little Venice to Camden
Lock and back four times each day from Easter
till the end of September.
The first canal in England's extensive network
was the Bridgewater Canal built in 1757 in the
midlands by the Duke of Bridgewater. The last to
be built was the Regent's, completed in 1820. It
covers eight miles from Little Venice to the
Thames at the Limehouse docks.
The 12.30 Jason's Trip cruises offer lunch,
basically pub food, such as the traditional
Ploughman's Special (small loaf of bread, large
chunk of cheese, garnishments, chutney and
butter). Aboard the boat you can order soft
drinks, Perrier, wine or good English lager or ale.
Seventy feet in length, the boat is decorated
with the Romany designs that date back to early
canalboat days when gypsies were the original
"boatees" on the canals. In those days boats were
towed by horses, walking along towpaths.
On our trip agile Lisa Kirby served as narrator,
stewardess and first mate, dipensing information
food or drink, when not skipping lightly across
the boat rail to tie up at a mooring. Once she fell
into the canal. Massive penicillin shots followed.
Jason's Trip shares the murky canal waters
with the London Waterbus Co. buses and
numerous Canadian geese. One of the first sights
of interest in Browning Island, named for the poet
Robert Browning who lived nearby.
---The cruise travels through spooky Maida
Tunnel, 272 yards long and then moves under a
bridge bearing a strange name. Its official name
is Macclesfield but since 1874 it has just been
called "Blow Up" Bridge. That year the

gunpowder, exploded as it was being towed

Freeport beckons boaters
by Mary Unterbrink ... .-. --- ... -- -
Since celebrating its 30th birthday in August,
1985, Freeport/Lucaya on Grand Bahama Island
has undergone a major face-lift to convert the
Number 2 city in the Bahamas into a first-rate
vacation playground. Hotels have been
renovated, marinas enlarged and the airport
spruced up with fresh pink and white paint. The
efforts paid off, with an impressive increase in
tourists in 1985 and prospects of an excellent
upcoming winter season.
Grand Bahama Island, surrounded by clear
green and blue waters, enjoys nearly perfect
weather (winter lows usually in the 70s). The
clean, quiet island (population 35,000) boasts 60
miles of natural beaches. Scattered groups of
buildings nestle between large undeveloped
tracts of lush vegetation. Just 70 miles east of
Florida, Freeport is fast becoming a popular
destination with Florida boaters who can easily
find a marina there to suit their needs.
The Running Mon Marina at Kelly Court and
Knotts Blvd. specializes in charter fishing. It has
60 slips and provides marine service for a sport
fishing fleet. The marina features floating docks,
a 40-ton travel hoist and a complete marine store.
Supplies include bait, ice, fuel and oil.
The Harbour Inn and Marina, Freeport's official
port of entry with 158 slips, has reopened.
(Freeport Harbor is used by pleasure craft only in
emergencies). Recently docked there-was the 180-
foot Columbia which was used in the filming of a
Miami Vice episode. Work continues to widen and
deepen the channel to accommodate cruise ships
in the near future.
Celebrating its Grand Opening this winter is the
183-room Xandadu Beach and Marina Resort.
Closed for two years, it recently underwent a $4
million renovation. The concept of this full-
service marina is to provide an elegant spot in
Freeport for pleasure boaters who like being
pampered. Amenities include 24-hour food
service to boats, use of all hotel facilities, free
shuttle service to casino and shopping, and
membership in the private Xanadu Port of Call
Yacht Club which sponsors fishing tournaments
and racing events. Its lounge and disco,
decorated in a nautical theme, features live
entertainment. For a landside respite, tie up your
yacht next to one of three opulent villas (each
with private swimming pool and chandeliered

All watersports are available on site as well as
charter fishing with Captain Tony Cooper. Fishing
is always good, according to Ryan Lowe, Xanadu
dockmaster. "It's not unusual for guests to go out
for a few hours and return with a-60-pound
dolphin or some nice wahoo to be cleaned and
served by the hotel chefs at dinner that evening,"
The Xanadu has a colorful past. Howard
Hughes was its owner in the mid-'70s. He ran his
empire from a darkened bedroom in Penthouse-C
on the 13th floor of the white pyramid-topped
Tower by the sea. The eccentric billionaire also
watched movies for hours on end. Behind his bed
was his projector, alongside the bed his special
amplifier for the movie sound track, its control
within easy reach. He viewed his favorite film Ice
Station Zebra more than 150 times over the years.
His quarters were protected by armed guards,
remote closed-circuit television, and a key-
operated elevator. The floor below housed his
entourage of doctors and aides known as the
"Palace Guard." Both floors were off limits to
hotel personnel, other guests, and most
especially, members of the press. Hughes'special
food-handlers accepted his meals at a door
beyond his inner sanctum. Displeased with a
seafood order one day, he immediately bought
his own boats and hired a crew to supply the
Xanadu with fresh seafood.
An iron gate is still intact in the stairwell
leading to the 12th floor. Another gate, an ornate
tri-fold, is at the entrance of the library just off the
lobby where a portrait of Hughes (in aviator's

Outside the Freeport/Lucaya area, located 28
miles west of Freeport, is the Jack Tar Marina
located on the West End of Grand Bahama. Fresh
drinking water, ice and docking facilities are
available for boats up to 75 feet.
Cruise ships stopping in Freeport include the
Carnivale, Sunward II Mardi Gras, and Viking
Princess. The one-day SeaEscape cruise on the
Scandinavian Sun to Grand Bahamas Island
offers a free extra day and night at the Xanadu
and other Freeport resorts.
It is easy to unwind while you sip a tall rum
drink under the lacy palms and watch curly-tailed
lizards, so unafraid they scarcely get out of your
path. To get acquainted with the island, you can
hire the services of a "Bahamahost," a certified
tour driver who knows Bahamian history and
culture. A wide selection of bus tours are also
available. If you go off on your own with a rental
car or motor scooter, remember to Drive On The
Left. (Before gaining independence, the Bahamas
were a British Colony).
Nature buffs can learn about Bahamian
ecology at the 100-acre Rand Memorial Nature
Center; Garden of the Groves, a 12-acre botanical
garden (named for Georgette and Wallace Groves,
the founders of Freeport) which features the
Grand Bahamas Museum, water:ills and winding
lakes; and Hydroflora Garden which offers a
demonstration of hydroponics. See the Lucayan

When the shopping bug bites, head for The
International Bazaar, Straw Market, Town

Island) and woven straw items. As a U.S.
resident, you're allowed to take home $400 worth
of duty-free merchandise.
Grand Bahama Island is a world-class diving
destination where dazzling displays of undersea
life captivate scuba divers and snorkelers. Local
diving establishments offer three-hour crash
courses in scuba diving to novice divers for
around $50. After learning basic diving skills, the
student is accompanied by an instructor on a
shallow reef dive. Among the most frequently
dived sites are Theo's Wreck (a shipwreck),
Hydro-Lab (coral heads on sandy bottom),
Treasure Reef (highly-colored reef where $3.8
million of sunken fteasure was found 20 years
ago, and The Caves (deep surge channels with
coral outcroppings forming cave walls). The
Underwater Explorers' Society (UNEXSO), one of
the world's most prestigious dive clubs, boasts
library, photo lab, museum, pub, and the only re-
compression chamber in the Bahamas.
Sailfish, blue marlin, dolphin, kingfish and
wahoo are plentiful in the waters off the island
and record catches are not unusual. Bone fishing
enthusiasts can pursue their hobby on the flats.
Whether you prefer gourmet fare or familiar
fast-food, Freeport has it. Everyone should try
conch, a Bahamian staple which is delectably
served up as cracked conch or steaks, or in
salads, chowder, and fritters. Soursap ice cream
and guava duff are also island specialties. Rum,
the traditional drink of pirates, is produced on
Grand Bahama Island. It is used in cakes, ice
creams, coffees, bon-bons, and of course,
refreshing drinks such as the Goomsbay Smash:
1 1/4 oz. Dark Rum
1/4 oz. Coconut Rum
1/4 oz. Apricot Brandy

Among the winter events this year is Junkanoo,
an annual event of partying lasting from Boxing
Day (Dec. 26) to New Year's Day (Jan. 1).
Musicians with horns, cowbells and goatskin
drums take to the streets to provide Afro-
Caribbean music for riotous street dancing by
revelers in elaborate costumes. Island fun and
Bahamian hospitality await winter visitors, so
set your course and head for Freeport.
