Travis McGee's "Busted Flush"

Slip F18 at Bahia Mar to be

dedicated February 21


by Rosemary Jones
FORT LAUDERDALE--In memory of John D.
MacDonald (1916-1986), Travis McGee's Busted
Flush slip F18 at Bahia Mar will be dedicated as a
literary landmark on February 21. The Florida
Center for the Book, the Literary Landmarks
Association, Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center
and the City of Fort Lauderdale will sponsor the
event.
February 21 will be declared Travis McGee Day
at Bahia Mar and copies of the MacDonald
mystery, "The Deep Blue Good-by," in which the
famous houseboat was first mentioned, will be
presented to guests. A dedication ceremony is
scheduled for 11 a.m. at the dock with a reception
to follow in the hotel gardens near the
Intracoastal Waterway.
"We really love Travis," says Richard Graves,
Bahia Mar marketing director. "He's our buddy,
and lets-face it, helps make us famous. When the
Busted Flush goes out, people yell 'Where's
Travis?" Today's boat named after the famous
houseboat won by McGee in poker game, is a
sportsfisherman owned by general manager Ed
Glatz. Henceforth no other boat will be permitted
to dock at slip F18.
Robert Cox, mayor of the city of Fort
Lauderdale, which owns the property on which
the marina stands, will unveil the plaque. Other
participants will be: Jean Trebbi director of the
Florida Center for the Book, who interviewed
MacDonald for her TV program "Library Edition"
not long before his final illness; John Cole,
director of the Center for the Book in the Library
of Congress, which will publish an essay on
reading by MacDonald, "Readers As Survivors"
this spring; Frederick G. Ruffner and Donn
Vickers, president and director of the Literary
Landmarks Association; and Walter Shine,
contributing editor of the newsletter "J.D.
MacDonald Bibliophile," who will give a short
eulogy.


The program is the first of several dedications of
literary landmarks planned by the new
Association planned to raise public awareness of
the American literary heritage. The Association
also aims to aid local committees to obtain and
restore literary sites and to assist in the
development of literary programming. Jack
London's waterfront home on San Francisco Bay
and the James Thurber house in Ohio have been
so designated. Organizers hope to do something
with Tennessee Williams's Key West residence in
the near future.
"We are deeply saddened by MacDonald's
death but feel grateful for this opportunity to help
perpetuate his name--and Travis McGee's says
Ruffner, who spends many hours on his own
yacht, Mary Ann, on Fort Lauderdale waterways.
As president of Gale Research Co., publishers, he
recently issued one of the last interviews with
MacDonald which was conducted by Jean Trebbi
for TV and printed in the Gale volume,
"Contemporary Authors."
For details about the Main Library programs,
call 357-7404.


A deep blue good-by to

writer John D. MacDonald
by M.G. Swift
"Home is The BustedFlush, 52-foot barge type
houseboat, Slip F-18, Bahia Mar Lauderdale."
-from The Deep Blue Good-by
by John D. MacDonald

Thus begins the first in a series of twenty-one
colorful "Travis McGee" detective novels by the
late South Florida writer, John D. MacDonald.

Letter to the Editor:
On January 18, 1987 the Lauderdale Isles Yacht
and Tennis Club sponsored a Dinner Cruise on the
ship "Fandango". Thanks to you and the nice
article you printed in your paper our telephone
rang off the wall. I just had to let you know tha
many people really enjoy reading your
newspaper and do respond to the articles that
you print. I have personally lived in Lauderdale
Isles for 22 years and find it refreshing to read
your newspaper. Not only is it informative but
YOU have not forgotten the small communities,
groups, clubs and organizations that represents
what Ft. Lauderdale really is PEOPLE. We had
243 people that went on the dinner cruise, 89 were
club members and the rest were guests. Anyone
that did not go missed a great time; but most of all
missed the opportunity to meet the nicest PEOPLE
from all parts of Broward County. Thanks to you
and the Waterfront News for making our function
a huge success. Hope to see all of you again at our
annual Commodore's Ball on March 7th, 1987.

Sincerely,
Joan Sheridan
Lauderdale Isles Yacht & Tennis Club


Editor:
While the President has stated repeatedly that
he will not raise taxes, the recently unveiled
federal budget contains so-called "user fees"
which the boating public knows are nothing more
than thinly disguised taxes.
Recreational boat owners may have to pay as
much as $200 million a year in "user fees" under
an Administration proposal which seeks to
charge off a significant portion of the Coast
'Guard's operating budget to those who boat on
the nation's waterways.
While the federal government seeks to squeeze
more money out of boaters, the services it once
provided have been drastically cut or turned over
to be the states. For example, the Coast Guard's
boating safety program has been slashed by two-
thirds since 1980. And, the Coast Guard has been
steadily turning over non-emergency calls for
assistance to commercial towing firms. The
USCG responded to 14% fewer calls for
assistance during 1985 than it did in 1980.

Christmas cheer wasbroughtto many children,
needy families and lonely older people because of
the coverage that the Waterfront News gave The
Salvation Army's Christmas effort. I would like to
express my appreciation to your paper for
making this possible.
I also want to thank you for your cooperation in
announcing the various special events we had at
The Salvation Army in 1986.

Editor:
An ecosystem is being damaged and a species
in danger of becoming extinct in Ft. Lauderdale.
Low on the now thriving ecosystem is one of the
vital links to sustain this system, the visiting
yachtsman. Well, that is what you are called if
you stop to refit and spend $100,000 or more. If
you spend $50 to $100,000, you might hear
transient yacht. Under $50,000 and its transient
boater. God forbid if you stay more than 90 days
because then your social status falls to
"liveaboard" a term used more and more in
disgust, one step above vagrants. What a
paradox! If you own a boat close to 40 feet you are
looked upon as having a lot of money to spend.
But. if you live on that vessel you are not
welcomed in Ft. Lauderdale.
We have lived here for three years and in that
time have been hauled at three different yards,
replaced our Perkins diesel engine, our prop, a
head, refrigeration, and not to mention the
countless gallons of varnish and paint. We have
purchased or used the services many of Ft.
Lauderdale's marine support in the past three
years: Playboy Marine, Summerfields,
Riverbend. New River YachtClub, Complete Yacht
Service, Marine Gear of S. FL., Custom
refrigeration, Frank & Jimmie's Prop' Shop,
Florida Battery, Boat US, Boat Owners
Warehouse, Caribbean Yacht Chandler, Charlie's
Locker, Sailorman. We have also purchased
S15,000 worth of automobiles (not to mention
insurance). With phone, utilities and groceries we
have infused into this community approximately
S125,000. We contribute our fair share to this City.
We are tired of hearing accusations that we don't
pay taxes and that we are freeloading off the
system. We rent those ever decreasing dock
spaces at ever increasing rates and like any other
renter pay their property tax indirectly.
Exterminate liveaboards and all of your
problems will be solved. Or will it? It may well be,
that those of us who enjoy life a little different
thanthe Joneses are endangered, but next on the
chain of ecology are the boat yards who we go to
as well as the other-marine business, chandlers,
engine repair, electronics, prop shops, canvas
shops, sail lofts, etc. Ft. Lauderdale look hard at
your marine industry's eco- (economic &
ecological) system, before you carve up the
Golden Goose for sandwiches as Ron Falkey
referred to in his letter "To the Marine
Community" December 1986.
Ft. Lauderdale has been a great place to live but
we are no longer wanted and this has been
broadcasted loud and clear. So when we leave
here we will carry the news to other cruising
yachts to look for a friendlier place to refit.

Ask Big Al

Al.
Please, the name of one honest boat mechanic.
A.W.

A.W..
I can not recommend any one mechanic
because what may be a good mechanic for my
situation may not be good for your's.
An honest mechanic is one who charges parts
plus time. The better he is, the more his time is
worth. My advise is to go to the manufacturer's
mechanic or the one who is authorized to handle
your boat. At least, you will have the warranty
when the work's is completed and recourse if
needed.
If I can help you with any specific problem, I'll
give you my advice.A


AA
I have a Topaz with twin Volvo Diesels. While at
the dock they run for hours without running out of
fuel. But while underway, before two hours, one
or both engines falter. I've changed filters, used
vacuum pumps and gauges. Is my next move
electric pumps? Charles


Charles.
This question is asked frequently. In most
cases, the engine is not receiving sufficient fuel.
In your situation, it could be an air leak. Electric
pumps may help. But I advise pulling the injectors
and checking the spray patterns. If that doesn't
work let me know.. Al

1,000's Of Happy Homeowners


Invested In Roof Waterproofing


In the past, homeowners
with tile roofs were confront-
ed with an expenditure of
thousands of dollars to re-
place their old roof with a
new one. Now you have a
positive alternative, Roof
Waterproofing.
Roof waterproofing is a
tried and proven system, in
the south Florida area, that
offers the home owner a con-
siderable savings of 50 per-
cent or more over the cost of
replacing a tile roof.


Waterproofing Offers
Homeowners Savings of
50% or More Over
The Cost of Replacing
a Tile Roof.

Joe Valko of Valko and Son
Waterproofing definitely be-
lieves in roof waterproofing,
as his firm has been doing it
for the past 15 years. They
have 100's of satisfied custom-
ers in Broward County.

The waterproofing process
used by Valko and Son Wat-
erproofing is as follows:
The first step in roof water-
proofing is to chemically treat
and pressure clean your roof.
(It is important to get rid of
the mildew.)
In second step they com-
pletely recondition the roof
surface with a resin base con-
crete material. This step seals
all the cracks and seams and
it locks the tiles in place.
The third step is to hand
roll a bonding sealer over the
reconditioned roof surface.


The fourth step is to hand
roll a waterproofing material
over the entire roof according
to the manufacturers recom-
mendation.
The fifth step is to apply a
top coat of 100 percent acry-
lic paint to give the new sur-
face a gloss finish that inhibits
the growth of fungus, mold
and mildew. The new roof is
waterproof and will look new
for ears to come.
Valko and Son have been
using the same material from
the same Ft. Lauderdale
based manufacturer for 15
years and have been follow-
ing the manufacturer's rec-
ommended application pro-
cedures. They do not water-
down the product. You get
what you pay for.
The firm offers a 10-year
limited warranty on all their
work.

Limited Warranty
On Their Work
In addition to roof water-
proofing Valko repairs roof
leaks and will replace your
roof if that is what is neces-
sary.
Valko and Son Water-
proofing is licensed (C.O.C.
No. 84-3623-PU) and the
company is also insured
which protects customers
from any liabilities. Joe Valko
or Joe Valko, Jr. will be hap-
py to give you a free estimate
on waterproofing your roof.

mation. Their office is locat-
ed at 1299 E. Commercial
Blvd., Fort Lauderdale,
Florida.

ter Business Bureau.

tomers to call the Better Business

Through the efforts of many dedicated
individuals from the Marine Industries
Association of Florida (M.I.A.F.) and from
members from several regional associations in
Florida, 'The Boating Association of Florida'

on a legislative level the best interests of the
marine trade and the boating community," said
Steve Kuras, chairman of The Boating
Association of Florida. The pleasure boat owner
in the State of Florida no longer has to stand by
and have his/her favorite form of recreation
regulated to death. It is the intent of The Boating
Association of Florida (B.A.F.), to inform the
boating public and give them the opportunity to
stand up and be heard. Ronald Stroud, the
president of M.I.A.F. endorses B.A.F. by stating, "I
expect that the many benefits you, the Florida
boater will receive will more than reimburse you
for the dues that you pay. But more important,
The Boating Association of Florida will be the
medium to raise funds to represent you in cases
where other special interest groups want to
restrict the enjoyment that you obtain from
boating."
Membership fees range from $18.00 to $50.00
for individuals and $100.00 for sponsors. For
further information contact Geoff Richardson at
(305) 527-4173 or call toll free 1-(800)-654-3918.

I.R.S. looking
for yacht scams
The Research Institute of America reports that
tax agents are out to nail yacht owners who
convert the personal cost of running a boat into a
deductible business or investment expense.
Similar phony writeoffs for personal use of
planes and motorhomes are on the IRS' hit list.
Here are a few boating examples:
Buyer & broker complete paperwork for
purchase in December even though the yacht
won't be ready until the following spring. Buyer
then goes ahead to claim investment tax credit
and depreciation deduction for the year in which
the sale was dated. "An abusive and illegal
situation," says the IRS.
Broker arranges "check-swapping" scheme
among several yacht owners. After several
rounds, each one has generated enough charter
income to qualify as a charter business. Owners
write off business expenses and take the
investment tax credit. In truth, everyone keeps
his money-- except for the small fee each one
pays his broker.
Yacht owner established charter business via
falsified logs of charter activities supplied by a
yacht broker. Logs should satisfy IRS in case of
an audit, since the broker will keep backup logs.
He collects a service fee.
Broker fattens purchase price on all documents
buyer needs to obtain a loan. Buyer then borrows
only the money needed to buy the boat, say a sum
of $175,000 but claims depreciation and
investment tax credit on the padded price of
$200,000.

The 1987 Miami International boat and sailboat show


by Geri Haber
MIAMI BEACH----Two international boating
events featuring a complete selection of 1987
powerboats, sailboats and accessories will be
presented February 14-18 when the Miami
International Boat Show and the Miami
International Sailboat Show dock in Miami
Beach.
The two marine extravaganzas will be held
simultaneously and in conjunction with each
other. The Miami International Boat Show, the
nation's largest public boat show, will make its
46th appearance at the Miami Beach Convention
Center, while the Miami International Sailboat
Show,-the South's only in-water sailboat show,
returns to Miami Beach Marina for its second
edition.
At the convention center, the 1987 Miami
International Boat Show will cover the entire
interior and exterior of the massive show site.
More than a million square feet of space will be
filled with luxury yachts, fishing boats, high-
performance boats, ski boats, inflatables,
engines, accessories, and more. Show visitors
will have the opportunity to examine more than
$100 million worth of products displayed by over
1,000 exhibitors from around the world.
"Global participation in the Miami show
continues to climb," said Lloyd Yanis, show
manager. "All indicators are pointing to a record
number of international visitors this year."

For those interested in learning to sail, free
sailing mini-lessons will be provided by the
American Sailing Association. Seminars and
actual on-the-water sailing instructions designed
to introduce showgoers to sailing fundamentals


will be offered.
New this year to the Miami International Boat

special one-day preview of both shows. Red
Carpet Day will take place Friday, February 13,
one day prior to the official public opening. A
specially-priced $15 Red Carpet ticket will be
available to the public at the show sites.
"Whether your preference is power or sail,
Miami Beach in February will be the place to see,
board and buy the very best and newest the
marine industry has to offer," said Yanis. "Show
visitors can count on seeing products from
practically every major marine manufacturer in
the world."

Lauderdale to be one of 1989-90

Whitbread Race Destinations


by M.G. Swift
Fort Lauderdale will host a fleet of some 35
sailboats in April of 1990. The Whitbread Round the
World Race committee has designated Fort
Lauderdale as one of several destinations for the
1989-90 event. The cruising and maxi vessels will
need dock space and hotel reservations for
family and friends who will be staying for about
twenty days, according to Dick Vander Bosch of
the'Lauderdale Yacht Club. Sponsors are needed
for the race, said Van der Bosch, an event which
will most likely attract television coverage and
international recognition beneficial to the
promotion of the boating tourist trade of Fort
Lauderdale.
In a related matter, a local woman sailor, is
attempting, to assemble and all-woman crew for the
1989-90 Whitbread Race. "Among women in
professional sailing circles there is a growing
number who have expressed interest in
competing in the Whitbread. Unfortunately, as
the boats involved become increasingly more
sophisticated with each successive race, there
are fewer places aboard them for female crew,"

m


she says Therefore, she theorizes that the
only way for women in Whitbread is on an all
female crew aboard a female customized
sailboat. She, too, is looking for sponsors.


Sunshine Regatta IV
Three days of top quality course, slalom and
long distance boardsail racing will be featured at
the fourth annual Sunshine Regatta. Sponsored
by the Greater Fort Lauderdale Boardsailing
Association, the windsurfing regatta will be held
February 13, 14 and 15, 1987 on Fort Lauderdale
Beach at the Sheraton Yankee Clipper Hotel.
Recognized as one of the premier amateur
boardsail racing events in the country, the
Sunshine Regatta will be the first ranking regatta
of the 1987 season. There will be divisions for all
ages and sexes. A banquet and parties, prizes,
giveaways and T-shirts complement this Fort
Lauderdale windsurfing tradition.
There is a $25 pre-registration fee ($35 on-site
the opening of the event). Call 525-9463 for details
or ask at your local surf shop.

CAB is now SAIL-

Membership is open
The former Catalina Association of Broward
(CAB) is now known as Sailing Association In
Lauderdale (SAIL). The change in name and by-
laws was done to open the club to non-Catalina
owners.
The club was formed about ten years ago by
Catalina owners. During the years, many
members changed to other makes of sailboats
and the club is now composed of a large variety of
sailing vessels.
SAIL meets the second Wednesday of each
month usually at the Galleria Mall conference
room at 7:30 p.m. A social, program and business
meeting is held at each meeting. The club has a
variety of activities centered around both sailing
and social events including: a race program,
cruises to Key Biscayne and Bimini, raft-ups,
picnics and dinners at local restaurants.
Membership is limited to self-contained
sailboats and dues are only $25.00 per year. The
club is now composed of sixteen members and
wishes to expand, but stay the same close-knit,
informal group that has been its trademark in the
past.
Anyone interested in joining a group of sailors
who will make you feel welcome can call Gary
Roberts at 491-3327 during the day or Hilda
Roberts at 485-4316 at night.

Heritage


English ship Mary Rose exhibit in Florida


by Bryan Brooks
The chief archeologist for the Mary Rose
recovery project, Margaret Rule, gave a
presentation to an audience in Tallahassee's
Florida Museum of History, where many artifacts
recovered from the ship are on display during
January.
The Mary Rose was the chief warship of King
Henry VIII. It carried 415 men as crew and the day
it sunk it also carried 285 soldiers. The ship sank
off the south coast of Portsmouth, England in the
channel across from the Isle of Wight.
It sank July 19th, 1545 as King Henry himself
watched the approaching battle with the French
Fleet. The ship unexpectedly heeled over on its
starboard side. The lower gun ports went under
the water and soon the ship filled with water and
sank. It rested on its starboard side buried by the
channel mud for over 400 years.
The ship was discovered by archeologists in
1967. Dr. Rule told the audience that about 1979
work began in earnest to carefully dig the mud
from the Mary Rose and methodically mark,
photograph and recover the items found on the
ship. Much of life in those times was learned from
this discovery according to Dr. Rule. Personal
items such as a chest containing a barber
surgeon's tools complete with a brass
hypodermic was recovered.


*IDISCOUT ICE^


Some of the cannons had been recovered in the
1830's, but most of the historical treasure house
was left intact. Besides the cannons, the divers
were able to recover many long bows, some in
cases unused. Dr. Rule stated there were 91 guns
on the ship.
When asked how many men survived, she
stated there wereonly about 40 total. The reason
for this was that, (1) when water poured in the
starboard gun ports the ship sank rather quickly,
and (2) a heavy rope matting covered the ship to
prevent boarders from attacking ships to climb
aboard. This rope matting acted as a trap
containing the men on the ship.
Dr. Rule stated she personally did about 800
dives on the Mary Rose when she stopped
counting. Altogether about 600 divers from
England, most volunteers, were trained by the
eight staff marine archeologists to help in the
marking and recovery. Among the divers helping
was Prince Charles.
When asked about diver safety during the
recovery, Dr. Rule said there were a total of about
26,000 dives. The only accident was a fatality; a
woman diver had a vocal spasm and being
underwater was unable to clear her throat and
breathe. By the time she was brought to the
surface, it was too late. The depth being only
about 40 feet helped to keep nitrogen problems


from occurring. The visibility in the channel went
from inches to the twenty foot range. There are
about five feeder streams that dump into the
channel keeping visibility down most of the time.
Cost for the project was around six million
dollars with most of it coming from the private
sector. The ship is being restored and will be on
view in a museum in Portsmouth not far from the
place it was built.
Dr. Rule was asked how the ship suddenly
sunk, even with the lower gun ports, when it was
an able warship with a distinguished career. She
felt perso-pally from what they have recovered so
far, that the ship's carpenters, in a effort to get
more fresh air into their dingy quarters, cut out a
main part of the bulkhead, allowing water to get
in quicker as the ship heeled over on its starboard
side.
The ship was raised from the waters off
Portsmouth on October 11th, 1982. Dr. Rule stated
that to raise the ship hundreds of diver hours
were spent placing the lifting frames under the
ship. Also hundreds of wires attached to eye bolts
with steel plate backing had to be placed into
perfect location thereby keeping the ship from
being crushed as it rose from the silty bottom.
Thus far over 17,000 items from the ship have
.been marked and recovered. The project will
continue into the 21st Century.

Lighthouse Point Sailfish

Tourney Results
by Rachel Leach
The ability to foretell the future is something
that could come in handy for anyone, but it could
have been quite an asset for a couple anglers in
the Lighthouse Point Sailfish Tournament
January 16th and 17th. If Burt Moss had known
his White Marlin would be the eventual winner, he
could have packed up his rod and gone home
about 9:45 A.M. on the first day. Moss earned the
top angler award shortly after 9:30 Friday
morning. Likewise, Rich Ozelie is wishing that he
had had enough foresight to merely enter the
tournament after he landed a 79 pound Blue
Marlin. It may have won the tournament had he
been registered.
The great majority of fish were caught on
Friday. Likewise most of the tournament winners
caught their winning catches on the first day.
Most anglers felt that this was due in large part to
the unseasonably calm seas on Saturday. Here
are the rest of the results of this tournament:
TOP ANGLERS
1. Burt Moss White Marlin caught aboard the Try Me
2. Jacquest Paul-Hus Two sailfish caught aboard the
Terminator
3. Sandy Storer Sailfish and Wahoo caught aboard the
Snapshot
4. Steve Billing Sailfish caught aboard the Arbitrator
5. Bruce Sweeney Sailfish caught aboard the Pro-Junkie
Top Boats
1. Try Me White Marlin 400 points
2. En-Joy Two Sailfish 400 points
3. Terminator Two Sailfish 400 points
4. Snapshot Sailfish and Wahoo 226 points
5. Arbitrator Sailfish 200 points

Book survey:

The Boatwright's Companion
by Allen Taube
reviewed by Capt. Ed Wiser
Writing a book is an arduous, painful task one
which demands not only talent but persis:ance
and self-discipline as well. Few successful
authors undertake the endeavor lightly. Most are
driven by a combination of factors, but the need
to create seems ever present. With Allen Taube,
the prime motive is a desire to preserve and
nurture a portion of our rich maritime heritage. He
is off to a fine beginning with his first project, The
Boatwright's Companion.
What started as a "how-to" article for Wooden
Boat Magazine quickly blossomed into a step-by-
step guide to tackling some of the major chores in
maintaining a wooden hull. Early in the text, the
author devotes a few pages to the importance of a
good working attitude. This is a theme that
resurfaces throughout each chapter. It
demonstrates that this writer is not only a
knowledgeable craftsman he also attaches an
artistic, creative outlook to his work.
The Boatwright's Companion gives new life to a
vanishing lore the repair of wooden hulls. Even
those who never dreamed they could replace a
plank or sister a broken frame will find these jobs
within their capabilities by following the author's
techniques. A lot of coverage is given to replacing
planks, from spiling to transferring the pattern,


shaping the new plank and installing it. Here the
author makes a valuable contribution to wooden
boat preservation for many of the methods he
describes cannot be found elsewhere.
Other chapters address such topics as building
a steam box, bending frames, and contending
with shipworms. The text is far from being a
complete guide to wooden boat repair. Al

Cruising Safety

by H. W. Lange
Lots of people at this time of year excitedly andi
happily prepare to enjoy a cruise. Naturally
"visions of sugar plums dance through their
heads". But more logically you must be sure that
the trip is long remembered with pleasure. A
large number of matters have to be checked out at
dockside. It is best to have an overnight
"shakedown cruise" with enough time thereafter
to rectify or reorganize before the anticipated
departure.
Having run around your Key, or Biscayne, or
the Gold Coast or even done the ICW from some
northern port -- what is so different about being
safe on a cruise? Lots; depending on how safe
you really mean to be. Cruising guides give you
many answers as to restaurants and even local
navigational matters but usually leave the safety
I am about to mention up to you. Because these
details are really basic good seamanship. This
article must be brief so use it just to trigger your
deeper study.
1) This time you are going farther. 2) There is
less availability or repair or replenishment. 3)
Coast Guard or friendly boaters are often not at
hand. 4) You'll need to, communicate to non-US
vessels, to a strange shore and with little local
knowledge. 5) The weather signals and time
frames need to be realized. 6) Maybe you have a
pick-up crew and/or new passengers. They need
to be trained and seaworthy. Illness or accident
can occur. Boat handling will be far different from
what you have had with fishing-day or sailing-
sortie -friends. 7) Security preparations and
aspects will relate to local customs and police
rules, to different harbor masters, and to

banditry.
To start with, you are forced to cross the Gulf
Stream with its special hazardous aspects. You
will not drift home if you lose power. Also navig-
ate with a proper drift/compass/and DR you'll
notmakeyour destination. Don't rely on electronic
navigation alone. Take care that your declinated
compass is not being overpowered and that your
RPM -table indeed relates to over the bottom
distance. It is noteworthy that the Gulf Stream
with any degree of a norther makes for truly
"offshore" conditions.
Have you, like most, become a typical Floridian
boater? A sort of specialist not ready to enter
strange circumstances. Test yourself: why do I
need a bell aboard? About that time what
different horn signals would be used?
Your safety relys on communication by a
proper VHF and beyond that by SSB. Since
foreign ports and commercial vessels work on
others, you need a VHF with all channels rather
than just 13, 16, 22, 68, Wx, and the marine
telephone channels of your home port. For areas
where you will be cruising find out now about the
search and rescue system. For example in the
Bahamas, Southwest North Atlantic and
Caribbean there is a channel 22A repeater
system. Get current details from SEARCH
NEWSLETTER (1300 SE 17th Street, Suite 210, Fort
Lauderdale 33316).
In an emergency the chance of rescue is greatly
increased when your MAYDAY (sinking or fire) OR
PAN-PAN (lack of power, injury or person
overboard) is clear. You may not hear a reply so
be sure that you give the call slowly and correctly
(position as precise as possible, name/size of
vessel, persons on board, nature of difficulty).

Repeat every once in awhile. Be sure you are
using maximum power and that your squelch is
not blocking audio.
Frequent Gulf Stream ventures should have an
EPIRB. That keeps calling for help when you have
no power.or are in the water and unconscious. It
floats with any current and gives the Search and
Rescue aircraft a datum center point around
which to make a search pattern.
A responsible and caring place should always
hold your Float Plan. Thus your absence will be
noted and the description of your vessel and
intentions can start a real search.
A life endangering emergency may frighten one
suddenly, and with no warning force you to
abandon ship. Under this pressure you need a
written procedure and checklist; then you'll not
forget your Visual Distress Signal (the more
meteors the better). It is well to practice the
"going under" drill and to have the "get away"
package assembled. Any liferaft must be
properly equipped, have been inspected
recently, be releaseable and boardable in any
circumstances and be seaworthy. I like the
details on this topic given by Malcolm and Carol
McConnell in "First Crossing" (W.W. Norton).
They also have excellent person overboard
routing with special rigging, alterness and drills.
You must have Class IV PRD's (life rings) on each
side and a stern jettisonable Class IV with a high
pole flag and all with lights and reflective
material.
As a cruiser you'll want the best lifejackets,
namely Class I; for your local waters PFD's do not
support one long enough or protect an
unconscious person. Boating is morefun if your

Cruising Safety


guests know what to expect. Some skippers have
a written message which each guest is given to
read, thus clarifying the things one finds and does
aboard. At the start all guests and crew put on
their PFD, know how to do this in the dark, and
then properly re-stow them.
You need safety lines and immersion type
harness gear. The use of these becomes
mandatory under conditions prescribed by the
skipper. A rig is needed in the galley to prevent
injuries.
The carefully thought-out stowage of all items,
and the securing of all doors, drawers, ports,
hatches and objects (even in knockdown,
pitchpolling, or roll over conditions) is a matter of
safety.
During a cruise rough sea seamanship (proper
heading, sea anchor use, lieing a hull, heaving to)
require an astute skipper. Study the techniques in
Chapman's "Piloting, Seamship, and Small Boat
Handling". For really interesting case situations
and thinking about application to -your own
vessel read the books and articles of Larry and
Lin Pardey. Also "East to the Axores" by Richard
Henderson.
A distant cruise makes for far less chance of
help from anyone to fight fire, to pump out water,

to provide medical care or to get you out of the

News in order to know how a helicopter may
assist you.
On board medical problems of illness or
accident need to be foreseen with a proper
medical kit, first aid instructions, training in CPR,
Heimlich and Hypothermia.
Additionally in strange waters you are really
on your own, so think of:
-drinking water reserve
-hull damage repairs (plugs, valves, external
and internal patches, rudders, propeller)
-spare parts both mechanical and electrical
-sail and rigging
-jury rig mast/sail
This has been quite a mass of potential safety
matters. Yet far from complete. That's why lot's of
skippers need a year or so to prepare for the first
real cruise of their vessel. There are numerous
lists and texts one can study which suggests the
things you may need--and especially the multiple
uses which common items can serve in a self-help
situation:
A relatively minor problem on a vessel, if not
stopped at once, will surely evolve into a major
one.

Ginger


- "The Sailor's Friend"


by Michael Blate
Ginger (especially fresh ginger root) has long
been regarded as the sailor's friend. Chewing on a
piece of the root, spicy though it may be, can
quickly ease the nausea and suffering from
seasickness. A much less desirable, but still
possibly helpful ginger remedy is to simply drink
some ginger ale. However, if you have the time
and inclination, making a "tincture" from the
fresh root can provide a much better keep-aboard
liquid remedy that will last indefinitely and may
produce remarkable comforting benefits.
To make a tincture of ginger, first grate one or
two fresh roots (now available at many
supermarkets in the produce section). Put the
gratings in a moderate sized crockery pot, glass
jar or other non-metallic container. Pour in just
enough 100 proof vodka to fully cover the
gratings, then close or cap the container tightly
and let it stand in a cool, dark place for several
weeks. Let the alcohol do its job of extracting the
medicinal qualities of this remarkable herb.
Finally, strain the tincture you have made into
one or several dark sterile bottles and discard
the now-useless- gratings. Then, if possible,

before the need arises, simply take afew drops of
the tincture and hold it under the tongue for a
minute or two..swallow... and repeat as
necessary. This homemade tincture may also be
used as a remedy for nausea from many other
causes.
Lemon is another comestible (edible) that has
numerous health benefits, and has also been
a longtime friend of sailors. Most of us, of course,
know that this sour citrus fruit was originally
provided, along with limes, to sailors after the
cause of dreaded scurvy was discovered: a lack
of vitamin C. But lemon either sucked alone, or
mixing the juice with the well-beaten white of an
ege, and drunk -- again, Before mal de mer
strikes, if possible will often provide ease and
comfort from distress.
Cayenne pepper, too, has a well-founded
reputation for easing nausea and motion-related
suffering. At the first sign of suffering, trying
chewing one of these hot, red pepers, (or perhaps
taking a small spoonful of the powdered spice). If
you can handle the heat, you may find prompt,
long lasting relief. These peppers are useful
companions, as well, when traveling in tropical,
third-world countries. They are like nature's own

purifier and are wonderfully helpful to the
digestive tract.
Why do these remedies work? According to
Oriental doctors, seasickness is a combination
of inner ear and liver disturbance and the above
methods or substances each affect one or both of
these bodily elements. These doctors saythatthe
eyes and nose are somehow connected to the
liver and inner ear, respectively. With this in
mind, when using any of the remedies described,
try staying in the fresh air, with your eyes
focused on the level horizon. And, if possible,
stay facing fore or aft, rather than athwartship, at
or near the waterline.

A deep blue good-by to MacDonald


from page 1

port, MacDonald created characters the reader
cares about and becomes drawn into the
experiences these characters get involved with.
One finds it difficult to lay down a book like A Tan
and Sandy Silence or Pale Gray for Guilt once he
or she begins reading it.
Travis McGee is a "salvage expert". He is a
year-round resident of Florida, where he lives on
his houseboat, The Busted Flush, won in a poker
game. McGee is an occasional private
investigator, aided by his fellow liveaboard
neighbor at Bahia Mar. Meyer, an economist by
trade, once owned a houseboat. The John
Maynard Keynes. named for the English
economist.
McGee is a man disturbed by his perception of a
declining America in general and his beloved
Florida in particular. The detective is a social
critic taking a dim view of the "junk" culture of
fast food, bad television, and gross
commercialization. MacDonald devotes much of
each book to chronicling modern ills as his
private eye sees them. These insights flesh out
McGee's character.
The appeal of a McGee mystery lies in
MacDonald's crisp, hard-hitting prose style. Sex

and violence take a back seat to the story, the
plot. Some critics considered MacDonald the heir
apparent to such classic crime novelists as
Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler. One
More Sunday has been compared to Sinclair
Lewis'classic Elmer Gantry.
While known best for the Travis McGee Series,
MacDonald also produced such serious work's as
Condominium, One More Sunday, Barrier Island
and The Last One Left. A collection of letters
written between him and comedian Dan Rowen is
being published in 1987. titled A Friendship.

John D. MacDonald wrote about South Florida
and its waterfront community in a manner and
magnitude few writers have been able to pull off.
"At the heart of it all, I am a moralist...because I
believe people must accept responsibility for all
those acts that affect the lives of others." -
MacDonald.

What are Estuaries?

by Marilyn Damon
Estuaries are special. They are where
freshwater meets and mixes with salty ocean
water The term estuaries, according to general
usage, refers to protected, nearshore waters such
as bays and lagoons. Survival in estuaries
requires special adaptations of plants and
animals. Shallow estuarine water temperatures
can range from freezing to more than 1000 F
during the course of a year. Estuaries must have a
balanced flow of fresh and saltwater. This
balance can be upset if there is too little
freshwater as in the diversion or damming of a
river. Estuarine-dependent marine life may die if
the precarious balance of fresh and saltwater is
not maintained.
"The cradle of the ocean" is a most appropriate
title for estuaries. More than 70 percent of
Florida's recreationally and commercially
important fishes, crustaeceans and shellfish
spend part ol it~'ir lives in estuaries, usually
when they are young. Many fishes and
crustaeceans migrate offshore to spawn or breed.
The eggs develop into larvae (immature forms)
that are transported into estuaries by tides and
currents. The shallow waters, seagrasses, and
mangrove roots provide excellent hiding places
from larger, open-water predators. Some species
grow in estuaries for a short time; others remain
there for life.
Shrimp, for example, spawn offshore. The
larvae then move toward inshore waters,
changing form by molting as they progress
through various stages of development. The
young shrimp burrow into the sea floor at the
mouth of the estuary as the tides ebbs, then ride
into the estuary on the incoming tide. If
successful in reaching the estuary after this
hazardous journey from the sea, the young
shrimp find underwater grasses and algae to
conceal them from predators. Because many
"'---larger animals cannot survive in the lower
salinity of the estuary, the young have the added
protection of a "salt barrier". Once th shrimp
approach maturity, they leave the estuary for the


sea to spawn, and the cycle begins anew.
Estuaries are among the most productive
ecosystems in nature. Rivers and streams drain
into estuaries, bringing nutrients from uplands.
Plant life use these nutrients, along with sun's
energy, carbon dioxide, and water to
manufacture food. Among the most important
plant forms that contribute to estuaries are
microscopic algae called phytoplankton. Other
plant forms include marsh grasses, mangroves,
seagrasses, and macroalgae. When these larger
plants die, they are broken down into detritus and
are colonized by microbes (bacteria, fungi, and
other organisms). During decomposition, the
detrius becomes smaller and smaller and the
nutrients and small particles become food for
thousands of organisms.


As long as nutrient-rich freshwater flows and
tides interact without human interference, our
estuaries will remain productive. Snook, trout,
mullet, jack grouper, redfish, silver perch,
catfish, sheephead, spiny lobster, shrimp, crabs,
oysters, and clams are examples of diverse
marine animals dependent upon healthy
estuaries. Estauries also provide breathing and
nesting areas, or rookeries, for many coastal
birds, including several endangered species such
as roseate spoonbills. Estuaries' role as the
ocean's nurseries cannot be overemphasized.

Soil and Water Conservation District at 584-1306.
We provide information on all conservation
subjects. Plant, Amdro, compost and soil surveys
may be obtained from the district.
