Fort Lauderdale's Seafood
Festival: A day long treat for eye,
ear and palate
by Nedda Anders & Maria Pierson
Fort Lauderdle, FL -- Enjoy a day of
entertainment, musical performances and the
finest seafood delicacies from a variety of South
Florida restaurants during,the third annual Fort
Lauderdale Seafood Festival 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
Saturday, April 11 to benefit the Fort Lauderdale
Hordes of hungry masses yearning for seafood
turn out to munch, enjoy the bands (continuous
live bands will be on stage throughout the day),
and stroll along New River's north bank from
Bubier Park west to the FEC tracks. 50,000 to
75,000 people were estimated to have taken in the
festival last year. Feeding that many mouths
could strain even the best serving staff, but
patience and good humor prevailed although
lines 20 or 30 deep formed around many booths at
The "eat and run" concept of food intake on
which this kind of event is based has become so
stylish in Northern cities that its been given a
name, "grazing", which implies eating lightly. Of
course, if you graze richly in enough pastures; the
results can be infintely more punishing in
calories, cholesterol and cost than if you dine
How much can a day like-this cost? Plenty. In
fact, you could go broke if you're an insatiable
grazer. As a part of the clever economic
conception, the Festival people decreed that each
exhibitor serve a different kind of seafood dish,
no more than two kinds at a booth. Although unit
pricing is gentle, sensational smells emanating
from the portable kitchens make you faint with
desire even when you're qo longer truly hungry.
But it's only fair to mention that you could cruise
the whole riverfront festival area for hours
without spending a cent, except for the one dollar
According to last year's chairperson, Patricia
Rathburn. the Fort Lauderdale Seafood Festival
was conceived as a "day long treat for the, eye,
ear and palate."

2 olume 4 Issue 1 Apil 1987 Woerfront News Letters
It is difficult to see how such an apparently
prejudiced column, against reasonable boating,
could appear in the Waterfront News. I refer to
Rachel Leach's "No Wake Signs to Remain" in the
March 1987 edition. Rachel will no doubt defend
her column, but she did not make a reasonable
attempt to get the facts! There were 5 speakers at
the County Commission meeting where the
regulatory hearing was held. Of the 5, only Ken
Steele was mentioned. He had 1/5 of the
For example, nothing was included about the
legality of a no wake zone in an area where safety
was NOT a factor! Nothing about the petition
signed by over 1000 boaters, asking that the IDLE
SPEED ZONE be eliminated. Nothing about the
dozens of quotes from marine officers and city
councilmen, uniformly against the zone. Nothing
about Commissioner Grossman, who must have
slept thru the meeting, because she missed, or
deliberately ignored much of the testimony. Nor
about her statement that if she had her way, the
entire Broward section of the ICW would be IDLE
Aren't these important enough matters for a
more thorough investigation in a waterfront
Ms Leach quotes 4 people who are for the IDLE
SPEED ZONE. She did not bother to note that Mr.
Santi, who was quoted, claims to have counted
boats. But Mr. Santi did not mention accidents.
The Florida Marine Patrol and the US Coast Guard
Marine Safety officers, who inspected the area,
both said that the existing laws should be
sufficient to control the area! By implication this
means IF EXISTING LAWS WERE ENFORCED! The
arguments against enforcement lose all of their
punch when you see the Sheriff's marine Patrol
enforcing the new IDLE SPEED ZONE which runs,
by coincidence, in front ofthe nice new house and
big Bertram yacht, a short way north of Cap's
MS Leach quoted Mr. Ross, but again nothing
about the lack of enforcement which permitted
the incidents he mentioned.
MS Leach took their word about Marker 68A
near Caps Place. Yes it was knocked down not too
long ago. But I travel that stretch of Waterway
every weekend that the weather permits me to go
on the ocean, year round. That was the only time
in recent years that that piling was knocked
down. Certainly it is not "constantly hit and
knocked down" as she stated.
While I cannot prove that all of Mr. Ross'
signatures were collected under false pretenses. I
did locate a number of signers who signed a
petition believing it was against the loud
"thunderboat" noises which do bedevil all of us
who live near the ICW. They told me they really
did not care about the wakes, because they were
not on the ICW. Why did MS Leach not have this
Ms Leach quotes Mr. McClellan. He says it will
take 10 minutes at most for a boat at IDLE SPEED
to transit the area, listed in the official records as
1 1/4 miles long. Why did Ms Leach not query a
boater, or better take a boat at IDLE SPEED thru
the zone. It takes me from 17 to 22 minutes
depending upon the tide, and I am above the
speed officially permitted, which is "that speed
just required to maintain steerage". She helped
shaft more than 1000 boaters.
She interviewed Luree Hughes about manatee
dangers. Why are the manatees so much more in
danger in this stretch than anywhere else? Don't
they swim north and south of the new zoned
area? Of course careful boating will help the
manatees, but preventing boating completely will
do an even better job. Did Ms Leach check the
reports of dead and injured manatees in this
stretch of the ICW? Some of the proponents of a
massive restriction on use of the waterway are
not above a good deal of exaggeration. The
Manatee Hotline should be a good way to verify
the tales. I've never seen an injured manatee in
the waterway and I lived directly on it just north
of the zone, on the 7th floor of a condo, with an
extraordinary view of the waterway. I believe
some of the interviewed persons prevaricated!
Finally, Mr. Editor, why did she not investigate
whether Sheriff Navarro was just too ignorant to
discover the errors in his accident figures, when
20 accidents in two years became 5 upon
examination, or whether he lied for reasons
widely believed in this area? That would have
made a great story, Ms Leach..
Mr. Editor, I suggest you take no more stories
from Rachel Leach until she understands the first
obligation of a reporter, a fair presentation of
both sides. Then you might remind her that you
have a boating, waterfront paper and at very
least, she should be accurate in matters affecting
I recommend another reading of Col. Young's
Letter to the Editor. It is dispassionate (which this
letter is not) and thoughtful. Also note the last
paragraph of Henrietta McClellan's letter. It reads
"The Intracoastal canal was originally
constructed to be a working canal for commercial
purposes." The next sentence might well read,
"People who live on the ICW know, or should
know that they must maintain their seawalls and
(should) dock their boats elsewhere. It is part of
the price they pay for the ICW view and prestige."
Yes, this came from Col. Young's letter.
Thank you Mr. Editor.
Editor's Note: The Waterfront News attempts to serve
all those who use and/or live on South Florida's
waterways. Rachel Leach's was assigned to
interview some of those favoring the sheriff's
actions on the Intracoastal Waterway. See Ms.
Leach's earlier article on the subject in the
October 1986 issue and the late Nathan Robert's
story in January 1987.

While cruising my boat this weekend my motor
slowed up, misfired and cut out completely.
No noise in the motor at all, I could hear. When I
got home (on my auxillary),and pulled the plugs I
found metal scraps on my plugs. I don't want to
run the engine until I'm sure of what's wrong.
Usually scaling of metal in a motor is caused by
insufficient oil in the gas mixture. Pre-ignition will
also cause flaking on the piston crowns causing
metal to coat the plug electrodes. I would
disassemble that engine, especially the cylinder
heads, to check for wear, cracks or bearing
failure. Metal pieces are a no, no.

good shape; only had leaks at the seams. The

almost uncontrollable: slides on turns, won't steer
properly. I never had that trouble before.
Whoever glassed that boat must have removed

The Coast Guard is proposing regulations designed
to reduce alcohol and drug use in recreational boating
operation. The Coast Guard Authorization Act of
1984 provides civil and criminal penlities for an
individual who is intoxicated while operating a
vessel as determined under standards prescribed
by the Federal Department of Transportation.
Proposed are standards for determining
intoxication caused by drugs or alcohol, either
based on a percentage of alcohol in the blood,
resulting from blood or breath tests, or on
observations of the boater's demeanor of
-performance. Proposed rules published in the
May 23, 1986 Federal Register (51 FR 18902)
applied primarily to commercial vessels. A new
proposal would expand those proposed rules to
include all vessels. For boats used for
recreational purposes the Federal standards
would conform to State standards for
intoxication, where enacted. These proposals are
based on indications that alcohol and/or drugs
are involved in a substantial number of
recreational boating casualties, reads the
Federal Register of Monday February 9,1987 (Vol.
52, No 26). The Coast Guard is soliciting
comments up until May 11, 1987. Comments

The Army Corps of Engineers is proposing a general
permit for seventeen coastal Florida counties
including Dade, Broward and Palm Beach,
covering new private, multi-family, and
commercial dockage less than 100 feet. The state
Fish and Wildlife Department expressed concern
to the Corps about boat/manatee collisions on
the waterways. County by county manatee
protection plans with area workshops will be
encouraged by the proposed permitting plan.
According to Dr. Hall, a civilian in the Army
Corps Engineers' Jacksonville office, including
multi-family dockage in such a permit would
make it easier for waterfront condominiums to
build new dockage. Docking restrictions with the
proposed permitting procedures provides for one
boat slip per 100 feet of dockage. If a boat owner
boat owner has one power and sailboat or two
sailboats, two slips will be allowed. Dr. Hall
concedes that enforcement of such regulations
will be difficult, particular, if say, a two sailboat
owner sells his two slip dockage to a two power
boat owner. Look for more on this topic in the
months ahead if this proposal survives initial
According to the outgoing director of the
National Hurricane Center in Coral Gables,
millions of people living along America's coasts,
particularly in South Florida, are more vulnerable
than ever to hurricanes.
"The price may be thousands of lives," Neil
Frank told the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee
in March, if the nation doesn't seek solutions to
Recent studies have indicated it would take 20
to 30 hours to evacuate some of the most
hurricane prone areas, including South Florida
and the Keys, the Tampa Bay area and the
Galveston, Texas area. The National Hurricane
Center is able to provide only about 12 hours of
warning time for evacuation to these areas,
Frank warned, and hurricanes can unexpectedly
To compensate for possible course changes,
hurricane evacuations often have to be urged for
large areas, forcing people to leave home
needlessly. This damages the credibility of the
center, said Frank, and makes people less likely
to depart again if asked to.
Frank called on Congress to move for
completion of detailed evacuation studies for
vulnerable coastal areas.
The city of Fort Lauderdale is proceeding on its

On February 15, 1987 Lauderdale Isles Yacht &
Tennis Club held their annual tradition called "The
Fleet Review". A fleet review is when the chain of
command changes at a yacht club from the old
board of governors to the newly elected board. It
is an important event, in as much as the vice
commodore becomes the new commodore. That
in itself is a very important ceremony. This year,
for the first time in the history of the Lauderdale
Isles and Tennis Club, the newly installed
commodore is a woman, Helen Armstrong.
A fleet review consists of several boats. The
first boat is the "Flag Ship" with Commodore, Vice
Commodore, Past Commodore and spouse on
board. The next boat is for the Board of Governors
and their spouses. The Commodore, Vice
Commodore and Board reviews the fleet of
decorated boats as they.pass by. There is a flag
ceremony in the main hall of the club and the
entire new board and their spouses are
introduced. All of the membership congratulates
the new board in a reception line at the club
house, after which a buffet luncheon is served
and the party begins.'This event marks the
beginning of the year for the new board which has
many responsibilities. Not only does the Board of
Governors help run the club, but each newly
elected board member is appointed a position by
the new Commodore.
This year's board includes: Commodore-Helen
Armstrong, Secretary Beverly Perraud,
Treasurer John Brandt, Athletics Al Grover,
Bingo Philip Beck, Entertainment- Jim
Thompson, Membership Peter Sheridan,
Yachting James Carnes, and Youth Scott Di
Salvo. The position of Vice Commodore Joe
O'Hara, was voted on by the equity membership,
as the Vice Commodore automatically becomes
the Commodore the following year. There are also
non-voting associate members of the yacht club.
One of the biggest events of this year will be "A
Riverfront Festival" Sponsored by United
Cerebral Palsy of Broward County. The event will
be held at the Lauderdale Isles Yacht and Tennis
Club, 2637 Whale Harbor Lane, Ft. Lauderdale, on
Saturday, April 4th and Sunday, April 5th from
10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. There will be fun for the
entire family with, rides, games, crafts, plants,
indoor flea market, food and drinks, homemade
cakes and goodies, exhibits and much more. Yes,
this is going to be a very busy year for the new
Board of Governors and we hope YOU will come
over and join in the fun to help make it a
qualifies for deductibility of mortgage interest.
There are some stipulations such as using it a
minimum of fourteen days during the year.
However, there is a movement on Capitol Hill to
eliminate the mortgage interest deduction for
those boat owners who consider their boat a
second home through a technical corrections bill
termed the Technical Corrections Act proposed
by the Treasury Department. Word has it that Sen.
John Danforth (Republican-Missouri) is fuming
over boats qualifying as second homes.
No actual figures have been given which would
indicate that substantial tax revenues are being
lost as a result of this allowance. On the other
hand, the elimination of the second home
mortgage interest deduction for boat owners will
have a devastating effect on boat sales in the
billions of dollars. It is not necessarily a loophole
for wealthy boat owners; many of the boats
which qualify are owned by middle-income
families who have chosen a boat to live on during
weekends and holidays versus buying a condo,
cottage, or mobile home.
This issue has even made national news when
anchor Tom Brokaw (NBC) broadcast "Boats,
Yachts. Floating pleasure palaces. Water-borne
tax deductions bobbing about unscathed in a
sea of nondeductibility." And the Miami Herald
recently wrote "Boat loophole remains afloat".

9th Annual Marine Flea Market Set for April 24
The Dania Marine Flea Market returns to Dania
Jai Alai, April 24th, 25th, and 26th. The three day
event annually transforms the Jai Alai Fronton
parking lot into "the world's largest nautical
swap shop". The marine flea market has
established itself as an ideal place to buy or sell
marine equipment and other boating related
items in a free enterprise atmosphere of dickering
Originated in 1979, the Dania Marine Flea
Market has proven to be a service to the boating
industry and yachtsman alike. It's the place to
buy or sell those marine items that have
accumulated as a result of obsolescence, model
changes, over ordering, trade-ins or minor
damage. Last year's flea market had sellers from
throughout the United States occupying over 400
booths selling everything imaginable from fine
shark's tooth jewelry to engine parts, used boats,
and marine newspapers.
Because the marine flea market occurs only
one weekend a year, it allows boat and accessory
manufacturers the opportunity to sell large
quantities of teak, upholstery, instruments and
accessories that they would not be able to sell
through normal channels and at unbelievably low
prices! Groups of private individuals rent space to
sell the "nautical treasures" found while cleaning
out garages and dock boxes of accumulated boat
parts and fishing tackle. According to Al
Behrendt, organizer of the event, "The buyers
love a. good deal and the sellers enjoy turning
their unwanted marine items into cash. The
dickering and dealing are just part of the fun!"
The huge crowds visiting the marine flea
market come from all parts of Florida and the
Bahamas. A growing number of boat dealers and Free parki
private individuals have found the marine flea mean that
market to be an excellent place to sell used boats. merchandi

Lauderdale's Spring Boat Show moved to Memorial Day Weekend
by M.G. Swift
Earlier dates published previously for the 1987
Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat and Sport Show
were withdrawn, according to Andrew Doole, one
of the show organizers. This year's show has
been rescheduled for Friday, May 22nd through
Monday, May 25th at Bahia Mar Yachting Center
and Resort. That's Memorial Day weekend.
The spring show is into its fourth year
sponsored by the Marine Industries Association
of South Florida. With over 200 tented booths
planned and 80 land space displays laid out and
113 dock slips allowed for sailboats, small and
large power boats, and brokerage boats the
show is growing from its wet rainy birth in 1984
though, it is dwarfed by its big brother, the Fort
Lauderdale International Boat Show in the fall.
Show planners are confident the holiday will be
a plus for the spring event. "Many exhibitors have
expressed a preference for the Memorial Day
weekend," says Doole. "The attendance at our
first spring show three years ago on Memorial

Miami-Montego Bay Set for April 3rd
MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA -In 1971 the Windward
Passage set an ocean sailing record which has
proven impossible to beat. The vessel sailed the
811 nautical miles between Miami, Fl and
Montego Bay, Jamaica in three days, three hours,
40 minutes and seven seconds.
On Friday, April 3,1987 more than 40 top sailing
craft from 30 to 80 feet in length will attempt to
break that record. PHRF (Performance Handicap
Racing Fleet), IOR (International Offshore Rule)
and IMS (International Measurement System)
fleets will run the Miami-Montego Bay Yacht Race
for the coveted winner's trophy, the Johnnie
Frequently 'called "ocean racing's most
complete test," the 'Mobay' stretches the
seamanship and navigational skills of even the
most experienced blue water amateur sailors.
The challenging beat, reach and run course is
sailed under the auspices of the Storm Trysail
Club, Montego Bay Yacht Club and the Jamaica
Yachting Association (JYA).
The prevailing south easterlies dictate a 295
mile weather leg to Great Issac, past GreatStirrup
and out into the Atlantic between Hole in the Wall
and Egg Island; then close reaching down the
Eleutheran coast to Cat Island.
This beat is followed by a 270 mile broad
reaching leg, down through Crooked Island
Passage and around the eastern tip of Cuba. The
final 246 mile westward leg home in Jamaica is
usually a downhill slide with the strengthening
trades over the port quarter. A majority of the
1986 race fleet had the broad reach of a lifetime
with continuous surfing in up to 35 knots of wind
under clear skies.

10O Volume 4' Issue1 April 1987 Waterfront News
by James E. Sullivan
Satellite navigation uses signals transmitted
from orbiting satellites to provide navigational
information. There are two types of systems to do
this; Transit (Satnav) and GPS, Global Positioning
System (Navstar). Both are operated by the
United States. The U.S. Navy controls Transit
while the Department of Defense controls GPS,
however GPS is not fully operational and because
of the Challenger disaster it may not be completed
untii the late 1990's or at least until a new shuttle
ca.n provide the means of placing the remaining
GPS satellites in orbit.
The paper will discuss Transit while the next
paper will cover the GPS system.
Transit started with the first satellite launched
into space by the Russians. It was named
Sputnik, the date was October 4, 1957. It stunned
the world. At that time I was the operations officer
for a series of radar air defense units on the west
coast. Our radio receivers picked up the signals
transmitted by Sputnik. They sounded like a
peeping bird. We were fascinated by the sound
and at first thought that the peeps were sending a
message we could decode, but since the
amplitude nor the pulse intervals did not change
our listening became an exercise in futility.
However, the Applied Physics Laboratory of
John Hopkins University monitoring Sputnik
noticed that the signals experienced a slight
change in frequency as the satellite approached
and passed overhead. This change is known as
doppler shift and with this the position of Sputni!k
was located. It was further reasoned that if a
satellite's position was known a special radio
receiver on a vessel tuned to the satellite could
establish the ship's position on earth. Put the
receiver in a submarine and there would be no
need for it to surface to shoot stars to reinitiate
the sub's INS (Inertia Navigation System).
S her ctual hor e
(+ ) actual horn frequency
ionm frecqucncy heard
How does it work? If a sound is moving
towards you the waves become compressed,
which causes the tone to seem to increase in
frequency and as the same sound moves away
the tones waves are stretched out causing a drop
in pitch. Hitch hikers know this doppler shift very
well. As the horn of a fast-moving vehicle
approaches it has a very high frequency
compared to the noise it makes when moving
away. Only when the horn is at the hiker's
position is the horn's transmitted and received
frequency the same.
Each Transit satellite transmits a message
every two minutes giving its exact position in
space. The Satnav receiver on a vessel tracks the
satellite, decodes its message, measures the
dopple shift and calculates its position relative to
the known position of the "bird" as it passes by.
The receiver's fix is in latitude and longitude,
within 300 to 600 feet and will dead reckon
between the passes.
Transit has 6 active satellites plus one in-orbit
spare that can be switched on if needed. Transit
navigation isn't a continuous fixing process like,
say, Loran C or Omega. Average time between

fixes varies from 35 to 100 minutes depending on
the vessel's latitude, time between fixes at 60 is
about 45 minutes, at the equator it is 90 minutes.
Time can be shorter or longer since the
independent birds can slowly drift east or west in
their polar orbits.
Funding for the development of Transit was
made in December 1958. It became operational in
1964 as the NNSS (Navy Navigation Satellite
System) to provide guidance for our nuclear
submarine fleet. It was then a highly classified
system. In 1967 President Johnson released it to
the commercial world, it was renamed Transit.
Oddly, the Russians who initiated space travel
with Sputnik were unable to develop a navigation
receiver and their fishing and merchant fleets use
over 200 Transit receivers to establish their
The Transit satellites were launched into orbit
from Vandenberg AFB by Scout four stage
rockets. The satellites are in polar orbits about
762 mile high, circling the earth every 107 minutes
with a speed of 14,600 knots broadcasting on two
frequencies; 400 Mhz and 150 Mhz. Two are
second-generation Nova space craft, the
remaining four are older Oscar satellites. Ground
control by the Navy is done at Point Magu,
California. The cost of a Satnav receiver has
tumbled to less than $3000 for a single channel
Transit was to be a discontinued in 1994 but
because of the Challenger shuttle loss it will
probably be extended until GPS is fully

Evacuation by USCG helicopter
by H.W. Lange
When a life is at risk, your own or one of your
passengers, the USCG can be amazingly close.
Especially if you do the right things. Re-read last
month's article to be sure you rememberwhatthe
air SAR unit may do.
STo pick you up out of the water or to do an
emergency evacuation from your vessel can be
done by USCG helo' and the techniques are
similar so watch the following case.
PICKING UP A PERSON. Helo' evac' is hazardous
for everybody, thus only done when the casualty
may not survive. Particularly risky is cable lift in
high wind, and nightime low level flying is also
difficult. Do not blind a helo' with your lights.
Listen steadily for USCG air unit instructions as to
handling the casualty, as to navigating your
vessel, or as to receiving the cable. In extremis a
crew person will come down with the cable, or
may dive into the water.
For a serious illness, or severe casualty, you
may use Channel 16 PAN PAN, then work USCG on
an agreed channel., If you are very far offshore a
USCG medical person will ask many questions to
diagnose the illness or casualty, may assist in
describing first aid, and USCG Base will be
evaluating methods of evacuation.
Sometimes a fixed wing USCG air unit will be
far above and will have a flight surgeon thus
providing full diagnosis and discussing
medication. That aircraft may also request a
"long count" to fix your location in order to vector
a surface or air SAR unit for casualty pickup. Sea
conditions may make visual or even radar
location difficult; USCG might direct you to fire a

meteor flare. Surface SAR units will be coming
your way even if helo evac is being studied. Have
someone on the radio all the time, if you have to
leave that post for navigational reason. Know
surface-to-air arm and body signals. Sometimes
USCG will put you on a "Comm Schedule". By this
they agree to call you at specified times (such as
every half hour).
The helo will come low to study your vessel,
looking for hazards to the helo or a cable. A
cleared area where the cable, or the basket on
cable, can be lowered is sought. Take down all
on-board obstructions but do not lose comm.
Give the heloyour course and speed, estimated
true wind direction and sea height. Remember,
there will be a high noise level under the helo, so
voice common deck will be almost impossible.
Keep personnel not involved clear of the hoist
Bring the true wind to your port bow, set speed
to maintain steerageway but to ease motion. If a
trail line is dropped by helo, guide the basket or
stretcher to deck with the line. Keep line free.
Allow basket to touch deck or water to avoid
shock prior to handling it. If you must move
basket, unhook the hoist cable, Do not attach
cable to the vessel. In.a rather complicated case,
where there was difficulty finding the pleasure
boat, the USCG got the patient ashore in Miami in
two and one-half hours.
In another case where a woman on board was
severely burned, the pleasure boat skipper did a
good job. The helo came from a USCG cutter
which was offshore and thus found the vessel by
long count in about twenty minutes. The casualty
was properly strapped in the basket, the helo

signaled to relower its cable and when hooked up
again signalled to hoist. The helo landed on deck
of Jackson Memorial Hospital (burn center) in
roughly one hour from the first VHF call to USCG.
A job well done.
Obviously the same cable procedure may be
used to pick up a survivor in the water after the
boat has gone down, if said survivor can be
found. That is why an immediate MAYDAY is
vital if you are sinking. With your location and
vessel description the SAR unit starts searching.
USCG determines the DATUM, i.e. probable
position corrected for drift (current and wind).
Then a search pattern is selected for the search
area. Surface and air units are assigned the most
likely pattern to find the target of the slowly
moving datum. The bright orange colored
personal floatation device, the floating EPIRB,
and floatsam are difficult to see in rough seas.
Hopefully you are prepared and have orange
marker, orange smoke, a distress flag, several
packs of meteor flares, a metal mirror to reflect
sunlight, a Class I orange personal flotation
device, and a handheld VHF when you are in the

The Age of Steam on Florida Waters
by Suzanne Savery
A traveling exhibit entitled "The Age of Steam
on Florida Waters" is being featured at the Fort
Lauderdale Historical Museum through May 16,
This photographic exhibit highlights the great
steamboats-that regularly plied Florida waters at ,
the turn of the century, as well as oceangoing I- "
ships, excursion launches, and small deep-sea
The inclusion of these several categories of
steam-powered vessels has made it possible to .
represent a broad cross section of areas in the
state of Florida that were accessible to
waterborne traffic circa 1900. ai
To enterprising boatmen of that era, water was ., g 5mra 55
not a barrier to transportation but was rather a
link between coastal ports and the interior. As
water traffic grew, steamboats became
ubiquitous features of the state's waterways until
the competing railroads finally drove them out of
business in the early twentieth century.
It was in 1912 that inland water passages were
opened in South Florida. In April of that year the .. -
North New River Canal opened. This made travel -.
possible between Fort Lauderdale and Fort
Meyers, via the North New River Canal, Lake -
Okeechobee and the Caloosahatchee Canal. FORT LAUDERD!F HISTOWfCAL SOCIETY
Travel and trade continued along this route until
the North New River Canal was closed due to
selling in 1921 bringing to a close an era of inland
waterborne Iraffic in South Florida.
Steamer Suwanee, Fort Lauderdale,
Viewers of this exhibit are offered the
opportunity to harken back to abygone age when
pafdlewheelers set the pace of travel on Florida's
rivers and to become familiar with the various
lypes of boats and ships that typified Florida in
the age of steam.
This exhibit is on loan from the Museum of
Florida History and was prepared by the Florida
State Archives. The Historical Museum is located

The story of Tar Ba
Once upon a time there was a movie actor
named Clark Gable. His famous line at the end of
Gone With The Wind, "Really my dear, I don't give-
a-Damn! "echoes in the early morning stillness in
a Ft. Lauderdale boatyard. "Where does this
dialogue fit in?" you may ask. We are on board
Tar Baby the yacht that Gable once called his
"She's old but she's elegant and everything
works", says Captain Dan Farrar who has been
her skipper for the past few years. Now, her
owners want to sell her. They can't afford the
upkeep anymore. Tar Baby is owned by Charles
Young, a Georgia oil man. He told me the story of
this fine yacht, named for the owner's association
with the asphalt business.

It was-1945 when this hull came out of the Elco
Boat Works as the last PT hull made. She wasn't
destined to join her navy sister ships though, as
the war ended before she was finished. She was
purchased by a Chesapeak Bay skipper and
outfitted as a yacht. When actor Clark Gable was
shooting the MGM film, "The Huckster", on
location in Philadelphia, he happened to see the
boat. He liked her and made a deal with the owner
to lease her for ten years. He named the boat "The
Huckster" after the movie. Following Gable's
death the owner came on hard times and began to
sell off Gable memorabilia. He eventually ran the
boat up on a mud flat near Baltimore, where she
sat when the bank foreclosed.
Enter Ft. Lauderdale band leader, Johnny
Leighton, who bought her and brought her to the
Miami Shipbuilding yard where the badly worm
eaten planks nad plywood of the hull were
replaced. Tom Rustin of the yard remembers her
well. "It was in the late 60's and we brought in a
crew to spray fiberglass with chopper guns on
her repaired and thoroughly dried out hull," he
said. "The fiberglass-was very thick and soaked
into her well". Leighton found some good engines
and had her towed to the New River to do more
work. In 1973 Johnny Leighton was offered a job
to conduct a big band in Las Vegas and he offered
her for sale. Charles Young was looking for this
kind of a boat for corporate charters and he
Young and his crew envisioned a rather trouble
free refit but deck beams had to be sistered and
the deck house was only toe nailed to the deck

The pilothouse aboard Tar Baby
wood. Four years later, in 1977, she emerged from
the boatyard with all the problems corrected, in
Bristol condition. For the next few years she
showed off, gathering numerous trophies and
prizes in sport fishing tournaments in the gulf of
Mexico. This 85 foot. yacht has a very unique aft
deck with a fishing cockpit. From there she
cruised the keys. After a maintenance overhaul at
West Palm Beach, she began a three year tour of
duty in the Virgin Islands.
From Tar Baby's flying bridge to her asphalt-
filled steel keel she is a part of Mr. Young just like
she was a part of Clark Gable who's pictures still
grace the bulkheads of the main salon and
staterooms. When you are onboard her you are
impressed, even to her engine room. She's stately
and holds her age well.

-Covering the Waterfront
by Bobbi Belanger
BOBBY REYNOLDS has been called many
names. Those I can disclose here are
"Crawdaddy," one of the "Johnson Boys", and Bill
Hansen-Siegel calls him "Mr. Talent."
Why? First, because he is a Crawdad; second,
when he and LINC LACKEY, bassist, got together in
1986 they took the name "Johnson" from an old
blues tune and they made up a few new lyrics:
"I've got a Johnson for ya, baby; I know you got a
Jones for me"; third, he's Mr. Talent because he
can play equally well the piano, synthesizer
keyboards, trumpet, flugelhorn and drums.
Sometimes he plays piano and horn, or horn and
drum at the same time. A rare talent, indeed.
That talent is currently displayed at the
Lagniappe (Lan-yap) Cajun House on Las Olas
Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale on Sunday, Monday
and Tuesday nights. Along with Reynolds are LINC
Lackey on bass and DAVE RUDOLPH on drums. This
three-piece combo has the Cajun House jumpin'
(which is not an easy job considering the
acoustics in the room with an aluminum ceiling).
They seldom stay a trio, though, what with the
array of musicians dropping by to sit in with
Reynolds, from Dayton, Ohio, started early at the
piano. When he was 7 he took lessons for one
year. (I guess that was all he needed!) In high
school he picked up a trumpet and played in the
band for 2 years. After a two-year stint in the
Army where he formed his own quartet and
played in Officers clubs, he met up with Dave
Matthews a music teacher and composer in
Cincinnati. On a student exchange program he
and Matthews toured France, Germany,
Switzerland, Austria and parts of Great Britain.
Back in Ohio, after this tour, he teamed with
Bobby Oliver, organist, pianist, and flutist.
Reynolds went out and bought a set of drums and
set out to play. He describes his early gigs as
being a drummer "paid to practice drums."
In 1967, Reynolds came to Fort Lauderdale but
left in 1968 to play the Playboy circuit all across
the U.S., where he backed the likes of Lou Rawls,
the Four Freshmen, David Letterman and Henny
Youngman. It was 10 years before he came back
to Fort Lauderdale, but didn't stay put long before
he accepted an offer from Rosie O'Grady's in

Bobby Reynolds in a recording session
Pensacola. He stayed in Pensacola for four years.
While there, he also worked at Trader John's
known to some as the Museum of Naval (and
Navel) Art. He played jazz, alternating shows
with the strip teasers!
Reynolds' latest comeback to Fort Lauderdale
was in 1984, when he began working the lounge in
the historic Riverside Hotel on Las Olas. He put
together a trio with Tom Roberts on bass and
Peter Heilman on drums. Reynolds was therefore a
year and a half. His next move was a short one -
just down the street to Poets where he linked up
with Mr. Lackey. They have been together since
the working the Orleans Inn In Pompano when Jim
and Tim Dowd ran one of the finest jazz clubs in
the area. They played together at Hemmingway's
in Hollywood, the summer of '86. and at the
Sheraton Yankee Trader.
During the last year or so Reynolds has been
working on some of his original music and has
been in the studio recording for Funkadero
Records, Inc. He's also contributed to Miguel
Rena's latest recording effort under the same
Bobby Reynold's latest concert, part of Lauder
Jazz II presented by Friends of the Library and Bill

Most of the creatures that swim in the pristine
clear waters of the Caribbean also swim right
here in our own back yard. Because of Port
Everglades and the pollution that comes from it,
we don't necessarily have the unspoiled waters,
but we do have the fish. In fairness to Port
Everglades, they don't necessarily cause the
pollution, it just comes out of their inlet. Anyway,
this column will try to examine, one fish at a time,
some of the life that swims off our shore.
My favorite has always been the Rock Beauty.
The Rock Beauty is officially in the angelfish
family. It is black and yellow with beautiful blue
eyes. I find, as a diver, that the Rock Beauty is the
most difficult of the angelfishes to approach. My
favorite diving pastime is photography. My
favorite type of photography is using a land SLR
camera in a housing with a 55 MM Macro lense.
With this type of lens you can get real close to
your subject and take what are called fish
SThat's where the problem with the Rock Beauty
occurs. I've taken a hundred slides of the fish, but
because it is so wary and hard to get close to, I've
only gotten a couple that are any good. It reminds

you of the elusive woman you've chased forever
but never quite get close to. Just when you think,
this time I've got her, she always manages to
escape. If you can relate to that, then you
understand the Rock Beauty.
They are found off Fort Lauderdale on our reef
system. Personally, I find more of them on the
deeper reef track, which we call the third reef.
The third reef is from 45 to 80 feet deep. They
are found occasionally near all three reefs, but
seem to prefer the deeper waters. Rock Beauties
feed off the coral and the sponges. Sometimes the
sub-adults feed off the parasites that live on other
fish, like a car wash. Divers call this a cleaning
station and nothing is more interesting than

watching a group of smaller fish clean parasites
off larger fish, who sit perfectly still'. As stated
before we use the term "car wash", but when you
see the bigger fish, like barracuda, open their
mouths and let the smaller fish in to clean off the
parasites, the word "dentist" also comes to mind.
Rock Beauties are found throughout the
southern latitudes, in the Caribbean and
Bahamas. The nice thing about them is that they
are found right here in Fort Lauderdale.
So when you're snorkeling or diving and you
see a beautiful, small black and yellow fish flirt
with you, then quickly disappear, you've fallen
for the Rock Beauty.
