With all the attention given recently to April's
Fort Lauderdale Semi-annual Fishing Tournament
S and May's upcoming Pompano Fishing Rodeo. a
competition involving potential future
tournament and Rodeo anglers will be taking
place May 2nd at Pompano Pier. The Second
S Annual Junior Fishing Tournament for boys and
girls through age 15 will again be sponsored by
the North Broward Kiwanis Club. The action will
begins at 7 a.m. and runs through to noon that
first Saturday in May, according to tournament
chairman Dan Oates.
This year's event is included as a part of the
Week of the Ocean's Sea-Son, a yearly program
geared to make school children and adults more
aware of their many interelationships with the
ocean and to celebrate "Mother Ocean"'.
Last year, 72 young people participated in the
first Junior Fishing Tournament. The 1987
tournament committee will award first, second
and third place trophies to three age groups: six


A pier gets facelift

by Craig Lustgarten
Pompano Beach has a new look with the
renovation of the Pier and the establishment of
the Fisherman's Wharf restaurant and outdoor
lounge.
The renovation project was completed last July
at a cost of $1 million. The Pier's owners are
confident that the new pier will make Pompano
Beach more attractive to tourists.
John Fernandes is a member of the YOBC and
one of those responsible for the success of the
refurbishing project. Fernandes commented on
the pier's transformation: "on a nice day, the
mounted police are here, the band is going, and
you can see people fishing off the Pier."
The Pier itself is the longest on the East coast,
extending some 1080 feet into the ocean.
Fernandes mentioned that the rocks underneath
the Pier were removed and placed out towards the
end to diminish the effects of the harsh
breakwaters. The Pier now offers circulating salt
water tanks that hold fish and bait. This enhances

The North Broward Kiwanis Club also sponsors
.the annual.:Sailboat Fishing Tournament,
scheduled this year for November 14th. This
young and active Kiwanis Club will also be
manning the lemonade booth at the Pompano
Seafood Festival later in May. The club meets
weekly at a 7:30 a.m. breakfast at the Pompano
golf course restaurant. Men and women
interested in finding out more about the North
Broward Kiwanis Club and its many nautical
activities are welcome to join the club members
for breakfast which features interesting guest
speakers.
Tickets for the Junior Fishing Tournament will
be available at the pier, 6:45 a.m., the day of the
event for a $5 donation. Proceeds from the
tournament will go to the Kiwanis Club's many

its attraction for fishermen.
And how is the fishing off the Pier these days?
Pompano resident Greg Malcomb, who:regularly
takes his 3-year-old daughter out to the Pier,
says, "The fishing is good at times, and then there
are days when it's not, but being out on the Pier is
always an opportunity to get away from it all for a
couple of hours."
Malcomb added that he is exposing his
daughter to the sport so that she will gain an
appreciation for it and will have a pasttime to go
to as she gets older.
Al, Pompano's Pier attendant, talked about the
way kids and young adults really take to Pier
fishing.
"The ones that come out fishing with their
parents will rent a pole for an hour or so, and
many of them end up enjoying it more than their
folks," he said.
Paul Kasden, one of the owners of the
Fisherman's Wharf mentioned that fishing is
good right now, especially for shrimp, bluefish,
and mackeral.

2 Volume 4 issue 2 May 1987 Waterfron News Letters


Dear Editor:
In your April 1987 edition of Waterfront News, I
read with great interest the pathetically thought
out letter of Mr. Ray McAllister of Lighthouse
Point concerning the no-wake/idle speed
regulations. May I qualify myself in saying that
for 30 years I have lived on the Intracoastal
Waterway in Ft. Lauderdale on Idlewyld Drive,
directly across Irom Bahia Mar Yachting
Center/Swimming Hall of Fame. just north of the
Las Olas Bridge.
In many cases I agree with Mr. McAllister about
the loud "thunderbolt noises" that he hears.
Please realize that on the waterway from the Las
Olas Bridge south to the bend beyond Bahia Mar
on an average Sunday during the season, there is
in excess of 30 yachts going north and south in
that area at any given time during a nice weekend
afternoon. Then at night we. must put up with the
noises of the Jungle Queen and the so-called
"Booze Cruise". I took the words of Mssrs.
Lambert and Guadabassi when they proposed
their cruises a few years ago, that they would
keep the noise down. For the first year or two,
they kept their word to the citizens and the city. At
this time the noise is flagrantly abusive and
according to Sgt. Gary Kroger of the Ft.
Lauderdale Harbor Police to me personally at an
Advisory Board Meeting last week, he said it was
-well above the 75 decibals that they allowed and
even that criterion is too high.
However, I must disagree with Mr. McAllister
on his idle speed series. I can assure Mr.
McAllister that this is absolutely necessary in the
congested areas of the ICW. Possibly north of the
Pompano Inlet and Cap's Place, etc., you do not
have the amount of traffic and speed that we
have. Mr. McAllister is probably a licensed
automotive vehicular operator, well past the age
of consent. He is probably driving a fairly late
model automobile in good repair with under 400
horsepower engines.
I can assure Mr. McAllister that you are not
allowed by law, as a licensed vehicular operator,
to drive your automobile in the street in front of
the condominium where you say you live at the
speed you would like to see allowed on the ICW
for an unlicensed person, probably half your age,
and with double the horsepower in your car, and
to run up and down the ICW at the speed, as I said,.
faster than you can drive your automobile in front
of your condo. Think about it. I take exception to
the point that you said Navarro lied about.
Navarro is a decent man, and even if it was only
five---you are a yachtsman. Would you like to be
one of those five statistics! Why not putthrough
something that allows a little life here to human
beings, as well as the manatees. I have seen
several of these accidents right in front of my
home. They are not pleasant to watch. I have been
in the marine/yachting business in this
community for over 30 years. I have raced both
sail and power yachts in the SORC for sail and the
Miami/Nassau Races in power, as well as the
Cowes/Torquay Power Boat Race in England. A
professional power boat racer, in driving down
the ICW to go to a start of a race at the sea buoy
off Port Everglades doesn't make any more noise
than your automobile does and he goes without


any legal restraint on him at idle speed. That's
because he is a professional, and he knows what
his powerful yacht will do. If he can contain
himself until he gets out into the open ocean, then
we should have a law to make idiot people
running for "Shooters" be restricted, people do
not have the common sense to handle their vessel
as they should.
Sgt. Kroger, as well as the County and the City
should be given the law to stop them and arrest
them, with fines of no less than $50.00 per
incident, and let those people know that when
they are in Broward County, as our guests---they
behave as yachtsmen should.

Editor:
You are aware that the 1986 Legislature
repealed all sales and use tax exemptions
effective July 1, 1987. Specifically, all services of
any kind or nature would be subject to a 5% tax of
the gross billing unless an exemption is
specifically created.

The House of Representatives Sales Tax Sub-
Committee has just released its first draft of PCB
87-11, the sales tax act. There is no, I repeat no,
tax exemption currently contained within the
draft for port services of any kind. Docking,
towing, wharfage, lighterage, loading and
unloading, ship holding, cleaning, stevedoring,
storage, ship agency, piloting, salvaging and any
other services that relate to water transportation
would all carry a 5% sales tax that is to be
collected from the purchaser or consumer of the
service.
Clearly, such an increase in the cost of doing
business in Florida ports would be incredibly
damaging to the marine industry. Members of the
House Finance and Taxation Committee need to
be contacted immediately to be informed of the
disastrous nature of such a tax. The simple
message which needs to be relayed is that all port
services must be exempted.

Telephone calls and correspondence to your
local delegation members relaying the necessary
message likewise need to be made now. The
situation is precarious. The marine industry's
voice needs to be heard.

Editor:
Thank you so much for the exposure you were
able to give to the Search and Rescue Charitable
Foundation in your February 1987 issue, through
an article written by your correspondent, Mr.
H.W. Lange. You may be interested to learn more
of SEARCH and how it is able to assist voluntary
search and rescue units throughout the S.W.
North Atlantic and Caribbean by providing
financial and technical assistance to the thin
scattering of voluntary units around the islands
that are the somewhat limited substitutes for the
U.S. Coast Guard. One of our present projects is
the setting up of a network of automatic VHF
radio repeater stations, to which Mr. Lange
referred in his article.
Many thanks for your continued assistance.

To the Editor:
I wanted to let you know of the quick sale of the
sextant that I had advertised for sale in your
publication. It was sold within one week of
placing the ad. The ad itself generated a good
response of telephone calls, one of which led to
the sale.
I chose your publication because of its wide
distribution within the boating community in Fort
Lauderdale. It was a wise choice.
Although I am no longer a member of the
boating community in South Florida, I have
always enjoyed your publication and found it to
be informative and very useful.

By next spring, the Fort Lauderdale Coast

the police department. The police want to move their
Beach Substation out of their crowded Hall of
Fame quarters and into the Auxiliary's home of 36
years on Seabreeze. If all goes as planned the
police will move their holding tank and
substation officeto the waterfront facility before
Spring Break 1988. The Auxiliary will still be able
to use the docks, radio shack and a small storage
room. The city will offer them a number of off-site
classrooms for the group's meeting and
extremely popular public boating safety courses.


Ask Big Al


Q-
I want to buy a sailboat but hate waiting at the
draw bridges for them to open. Can I get a folding
mast, hydraulic mast or a jointed mast so I can go
under a bridge without causing that long wait for
a bridge to open and close?
Alan

A-
Some "great minds" have given your request a
lot of thought. A hydraulic mast with all the seals,
weight and oil is hardly practical. A jointed mast
is also a problem. Masts fail in heavy winds and
break sometimes without joints to help them
snap. My advice is a tabernacle mast that you can
tilt or lower if need be. Of course, this is not for a
large boat or a racing boat which must have a
mast securely anchored through the deck and
hull. Oh yes, you can always buy a powerboat.


0-
I have a large boat with a diesel engine that has
developed a bad vibration in the port engine. Can
you list the causes of this and what to do?
A- Lou
A-
Vibrations in an engine can be caused by many
things: (1)is the engine running smoothly? bad
valves, plugs, injectors, etc.; (2) if the engine is
fine, is the prop' fouled with a palm frond or
plastic bag? a tangled rope, bent or broken
blades; (3) a bad cutlass bearing or bent shaft can
cause vibration; (4) loose or worn motor mounts
and an engine out-of-line will do it also create the
shakes. So you see, Lou, many things can be
checked for the causes of engine vibrations.

I would like to take a course on marine engines.
I want to travel with my boat. Any suggestions?

No one can be a mechanic just by taking.an
engine course. But instruction and buying an
engine manual for your equipment will certainly
help. Al

7th Avenue Boat Ramp

surveyed for renovations
by M.G. Swift
The city boat ramps and park on the north bank
of New River just west of the Marshall (Seventh
Avenue) Bridge have been surveyed and waters
adjacent sounded. City of Fort Lauderdale
engineers are studying the data from those
reports and should have some preliminary ideas
on what can be done to this western terminus of
the Riverwalk in early May, says city engineer,
Henry Talton.
Public hearings will soon follow at such forums
as the city's Marine Advisory Board (which meets
the first Thursday of each month at City Hall, 7:30
p.m.) and the adjoining civic associations
meetings, predicted Assistant City Manager
William Johnson.
Permits from the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers
and a submerged-land lease from the State of
Florida must be secured by the city before
proposed docks can be built along the river at the
boat ramp site, according to Johnson, who is
overseeing the entire Riverwalk project for Fort
Lauderdale. This may take several months, he
said.

Trap


by Bryan Brooks,
March 24th at Ft. Pierce, FL, the South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council decided against
Dade County's request for a Special Management
Zone (SMZ) around one of Miami's artificial reef
sites. This ruling came in spite of a petition
favoring this request of more than 14,000
signatures of divers and fisherman gathered by a
concerned Miami fisherman, Bill Steighner.
The SMZ request was fought bitterly by the
commercial fisherman through their organization
called the Organization of Florida Fishermen. If
the request for the SMZ had been granted, the
commercial fishermen would be prohibited from
using their fish traps in that particular area.
Powerhead spearguns and long line fishing would
also be prohibited..
On the Sunday before the Council's ruling, there
was a public meeting in Miami. The meeting was
attended by over 200 divers-and fishermen from
the sportfishing sector. Some members of the
South.Atlantic Fishery Management Council were
present to hear from speakers for over two hours
pleading for the SMZ to be established to savethe
fish around Miami's artificial reefs. These "reefs"
consist of derelict wrecks that have been sunk in
the past several years to increase the fish
population for the sport fisherman and sport
divers. Many of these wrecks were privately
funded by these two groups not by commercial
fisherman.

Richard Fernandez, member of the NAUI Board
of Directors, spoke at the public meeting. He
recounted instances of finding fish traps loaded
with dead or dying fish. Fernandez strongly
spoke against the use of fish traps because of the
non-selectivity of fish gathered. David Popowich,
one of the members from the South Florida Divers
Club and Mary Brooks, from the Underseas
Sports Diving Club spoke at the forum, stating
that their collective membership of 400 divers in
the South Florida area are definitely against fish
traps within the zone where the wrecks were
dropped. Popowich said, "I'd like something left
for my son to enjoy when he grows up".
Ben Mostkoff, the Director of the Dade County
Artificial Reef Program in Miami, said that in
1983, the State of Florida passed a law that
prohibited the use of fish traps, long lines and
powerhead spearguns within state waters. The
problem is that some of the wrecks are outside
these waters and therefore the laws are not valid.
The area in question is Area H, which is 1.5square
nautical miles, and is in Federal waters. Mostkoff
wanted the SMZ to include this area, thus his
request to the South Atlantic Fishery
Management Council. The SAFMC answers to the
National Marine Fisheries Commission.
Speaking at the public forum in Miami was
Alexander Stone, the South Florida Director of the
American Littoral Society. He stated, "The reason
the commercial fishermen were contesting this

small of an area was because they know that
within a 1000 foot radius of the artificial reef most
of the fish are drawn to the new site. They
immediately begin a coral colony. The
commercial fisherman drop their traps around
these wrecks and soon over exploit the fish
stocks." "This," according to Stone, "defeats the
very purpose the wrecks were dropped and that is
to increase the fish and coral population for the
divers and sport fishermen, and most of all, the
environment."
Mike Abrahams, from Captain Mike's Seafood
in Miami, and Richard Neilson, Jr., President of
the Broward Chapter of O.F.F., both stated that
the current Florida law, in their opinion, violated
consumers' rights because it makes it more
difficult for the public to consume seafood. Fish
traps can not be dropped in state waters,
Abrahms and Neilson pointed out, and this effort
to make Site H into an SMZ would restrict trap
usage in those Federal waters also; thus making
it more difficult for the public to access seafood.
When contacted after the Dade County request
was defeated, Ben Mostoff said, "There can be no
stopping on the question of saving our natural
resources. We'll regroup and then try again."
Mostoff added, "There isn't much doubt in my
mind that the members of the SAFMC already had
their minds made up at the public meeting before
their final decision. The Council, we feel, strongly
leans in the direction of the commercial fishing
lobby, which in this state is very powerful."

Don't Let The Big Ones Get Away!


by Capt. Al Plant
The centuries old art of preservation was
perhaps no more notable than in the times of the
Pharaohs of Egypt. We can view their stuffed
remains in many museums even today. By these
standards however the art of marine taxidermy is
relatively new. It is also becoming more
important to anglers participating in catch and
release tournaments who after photographing
their prize catch must rely on the new art of
reproduction if they want to display an accurate
replica of their trophy fish.
A Fort Lauderdale taxidermist has preserved
fish since 1938. The rich and famous likeJordan's
King Hussein and vacationers who have just
hooked their first big one off Palm Beach are
among J.T.Reese Company's customers. Hi
Alderman, who started with Reese when
Alderman was a student at Fort Lauderdale High,
is now the owner, Alderman introduced us to his
experienced staff, 14 with 20 years and 10 over30
years as taxidermists. His tour took us to where
the fish are first examined.
We quickly discovered that fish mounting is not
for the amateur. The taxidermist must guard
against spoilage, shrinkage and discoloration.
Modern taxidermy is a long way from the days of
burlap and brass wire. The hollow sculpture
method is so accurate that it will come within
1/32 of an inch of the original fish. Upon arrival
at the studio the fish is precisely measured and
posed in a life-like position. Plaster of Paris is
used to then form a split form mold. This is the

'We Have The Power To Make Things Happen'


best way to do your fish, but the angler must
follow a few basic steps once the catch is taken
off the hook. It is advisable that a fish be wrapped
in wet, absorbent paper, frozen and shipped in
dry ice to the taxidermist. The wet absorbent
paper helps the fish retain its natural color. The
taxidermist photographs and takes notes of this
coloration once he receives the fish. If an
experienced skinner has just sent in the skin of
the specimen and other details, the taxidermist
can cross refer in his records to the coloration,
size, weight etc., and select an existing mold that
will exactly fit the skin.
When the taxidermist is working with the whole
fish an incision is made parallel to the backbone
in the half of the fish that will not show when
mounted. Using surgical instruments all flesh and
bone is removed through this opening. Next
chemicals are used to remove excess oils and
organic matter inside the skin. Another chemical
treatment gives protection against insects. When
the lengthy curing process has been completed
the skin is then placed back inside the original
mold. The taxidermist is working with one piece
of skin and two half molds mounting the show
side and then the back of the fish through a slit in
the second half mold. The mounting is built up in
this manner with several layers of paper mache.
Then the fish is placed in a special drying room
where it undergoes dehydration to avoid any
shrinkage or warpage problems later.
Next the fish gets some cosmetic work. Skin

flaws are corrected, fins are reinforced and the
eyes are set in. In a natural mounting, not a
reproduction, the only artificial part is the eye,
with one exception. In the case of Billfish, the
dorsal fin is plastic or aluminum. Experience has
indicated that the delicate membrane cannot be
preserved satisfactorily.
It takes experienced hands to paint the
mounted fish. All fish must be painted in their
natural colors because they change color soon
after leaving water or during the 6-week
degreasing process. Artists paint from the
photographs of the catch or from stock photos if
necessary. A base coat of white with over
shadings bring the mounting up to its natural
iridescent look. Most are sprayed with an artists
airbrush and tiny brushes add the smallest
scales. A special protective film is finally applied
to the fish. Rarely are mounting boards used
anymore, instead a block inserted in the wall side
of the mount is equipped with an adjustable
hanger that gives perfect balance for display.
One thing to keep in mind if you would like to
get a prize fish mounted is to visit a taxidermist
and ask for a tour of the studio and plant. This will
help you to understand the process because it
does take time, and to check out the quality of the
work done. A professionally done piece of
taxidermy will last as long in your home as any
fine painting. It may not be a Van Gogh but it will
be your personal accomplishment. The one that
didn't get away.

Lauderdale's Spring Boat Show Moves to Pier 66 May 7-10


by Janet LaPointe

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL -- The 4th Annual Fort
Lauderdale Spring Boat and Sport Show will be
cruising into a new harbour May 7-10 at the
beautiful Pier 66 Hotel & Marina.
The Show was previously set for Memorial Day
weekend, but with an overwhelming negative
response on the holiday weekend dates from
exhibitors and the inability of the Show's old
home to accommodate the event on the preferred
dates of May 7-10, show management conducted
successful negotiations to hold the 4th Annual
Show at Pier 66 Hotel & Marina.
The land and in-water area at Pier 66 is quite
suitable for a Show of this nature and exhibitor
response to both the new dates and new location
have been extremely favorable.
Editor's Note: In a related development, the Fort
Lauderdale International Boat Show will not be
held at Bahia Mar this year because of a rent and
contract dispute, according to Kaye Pearson,
president of Yachting Promotions, who produces
the show. Scheduled for October 26 through
November 2, the fall show which is the largest in-
water and fourth largest overall boat show in the
world may have to be scaled down by 20 to 50
percent or move out of Broward County. Pearson

"Demise" bareboat charters


A bareboat charter of a pleasure vessel is a
means by which persons other than owners may
use a boat and not be subject to Coast Guard
inspection and manning regulations. It is a
"demise charter" agreement whereby the
charterer becomes the "owner" of the boat for the
voyage or service stipulated.
The charterer then has all the privileges, duties,
responsibilities and liabilities of ownership. The
entire command and exclusive possession of the
vessel, as well as control over the boat's
navigation, must be surrendered to the charterer
before he can be considered the "owner". "A
demise charter'owner must have control of the
boat and discretion over the selection of captain
and crew," stated Captain C.C. Martin,
commanding officer of the United States Coast
Guard Marine Safety Office in Miami.
The owner of a private boat being used for
pleasure purposes is responsible for his own
safety and the safety of his guests. In that context
a guest is a person on board a vessel being
operated only for pleasure who has not
contributed consideration for carriage on board.
"The law makes a clear distinction between the
operation of a private vessel for pleasure
purposes, and the operation of a boat engaged in


carrying passengers. The carriage of passengers
invokes regulations which address inspection
and manning, affording higher standards of
safety than pleasure vessels are required to
meet," reads a recent U.S.C.G. Marine Safety
Office newsrelease. "This reflects the intent of
Congress that private citizens on their privately


A charter to success


by Captain Frank Papy
When the couple returned from Europe they
were broke again. David was doing boat work
and Christy worked at a hotel.
Over a few rums David said he was going into
the charter boat business. I told him it seems calm
on the surface but it is a ruthless game. We
laughed and I didn't think much more about it.
...Until, one day, I was .standing on a dock
in Bimini looking for David who was now owner of
his own charter boat company. It was quite a
scene. There were 14 sailboats tied up with his
pennant flying from their spreaders and dozens
of people milling about wearing his company's
tee-shirts, getting ready for yet another Spring
Break Party.
I was lurking behind
a couple of fancy yachts
men, watching all this com
motion when I overheard,


owned vessels are responsible for their safety,
while passengers who directly or indirectly pay
for the privilege of being on board rely on vessel
owners/operators. The Coast Guard closely
examines bareboat agreements to insure
applicable safety regulations are not
circumvented."


"What are all these boats with the flags?"
"Oh," said the other yachtie, "that's a big
charter company out of Lauderdale!"
Just then, down the dock comes David with a
parade of charterers and captains. He was
dressed like a character out of Miami Vice,being
filmed with a video camera.
One of the yachtsmen: "Who is that?"
"Oh, that's David Williams, owner of the charter
company," his companion replied.
When David got closer, the first yachtsman
exclaimed, "Good, Lord! I don't believe it, that's
the guy who changed the oil in my Hatteras, last
year."
In my 25-odd years in the charter business, I've
seen them come and go. This is the first charter
operator I've known that not only puts them on
the boat, but provides organized activities for
them to do onshore. This is a new twist and good
for the economy. And to think I taught him how to
party back on Hendricks Isle.

Waterfront theater will offer view of New River


FORT LAUDERDALE -- The Performing Arts Center
Authority recently approved the final design for
the Performing Arts Center project, after noting
that the Center would be the pride of the South
Florida community.
Authority members also agreed that architect
Benjamin Thompson had achieved his goal of
creating "a sense of grandeur and intimacy" in his
design.
The 179,000 square-foot-facility, located in
downtown Fort Lauderdale on the north bank of
the New River near Sailboat Bend, will
be beautifully integrated with its site. The Center
will feature extensive use of glass in the main
lobby to afford patrons a spectacular view of the
New River and the park in front of it. The curved
glass wall will shimmer in the sunlight and glow
with light at night.
The Center is designed in three sections, all
framing a central courtyard with room for 500
people. The 2,726-seat theater, known as the Au-
Rene Theater, is linked to the 589-seat theater via
the Community Hall and administration offices. A
free-standing restaurant will be located in front of
the building, overlooking the New River.
The 5,000 square-foot Community Hall will be
used for special types of performances as well as
for private events. Full catering facilities will
enable the hall to be used for public and private
receptions, as well as business meetings. The

up a handsome roadway and arrive at a dramatic
entry circle complete with a fountain and valet
parking. Terraced landscaping, park benches and
ceremonial steps will evoke a park-like setting on
the city's River Walk.

beautiful park, at the head of the river," explains
Benjamin Thompson. "We feel we have achieved

Young adults having fun with "New Horizons"


by M.G. Swift
Last month the young people received scuba
instruction, learned and were tested on small
boat handling and spent a weekend windsurfing.
In the coming monthsthese high school aged men
and women will experience: electronic
navigation, fishing techniques, basics in marine
architecture, weather and seas, marine safety
procedures and upkeep of teak trim, fiberglass
and ge!coat.
They are the Sea Explorers of newly organized
Ship #258 of Pompano Beach. This co-ed unit
meets every Wednesday night at Yacht Center's
marina, 800 South Federal Highway. They call
their group, "New Horizons".
The youths run the program with adult
leadership more in a facilitating role. Jim Bleech


and Roy Harrington of Yacht Center are
organizing the ship; John Penn from Lewis
Marine and Nick Marando of Yacht Center are
assisting them and the young people in
developing a nautical program which will help the
kids grow as sailors and as human beings while
at the same time attract new members. The
bottom line is-having fun, says Ship Advisor
Harrington.

Sea Exploring, the oldest branch of the
Exploring program of the Boy Scouts of America,
has attracted thousands of young men and
women to the lore of the sea. Sea Exploring is as
popular on the prairies as it is on the coasts and
waterways.
One needs to be 14 years old and have
completed the eighth grade or 15 years old and


not yet 21 to join the Sea Explorers. Call Roy, Jim
or Nick at 942-8500 for more information about
Sea Explorer Ship #258, "New Horizons".
The last weekend in May the Ship is planning a
weekend visit to the Key West Naval Air Station.
Leaving Pompano Beach Saturday morning at
7:30 a.m. the group plans to make the naval base
by 11:30 a.m. in time for lunch at the mess hall. A
tour of the air station will follow. Saturday
evening a cookout on the beach is tentatively
scheduled. Sunday before returning to Broward
County there will be swimming, snorkling and
scuba diving at the base's beach.
With events and instruction like those above,
the young folks of "New Horizons" are asking
their peers what they're doing this summer. And
then modestly, the Sea Explorers outline their
itinerary with New Horizons.

Heritage


Review: Historic Florida Lodgings


by Remy Mackowski
It was over two decades ago that the idea of
"escaping from the rat race" took permanent root
in American popular culture. Preceded in
literature by Jack Kerovac's "On The Road" and
buoyed by television shows like "Route 66" the
restless spirit of a mobile nation was stirred.
Inevitably, seeing a buck to be made, hotel and
resort areas sprang up to meet the demand.
Those with financial means basked in tropical
paradises like Aruba while poorer cousins spent
weekends in the Bahamas.
Florida became the blue-collar equivalent of
these island retreats. It had sun, sand, surf,
Disney World and Marineland, all of which turned
this peninsular state into one large "Profitland."
Lost in the shuffle was Florida's rich heritage.
One that dated back to the first railroads and
remembered the hurricane of 1928. It was a
history trampled by tourist dollars seeking
simulated Utopias.
But the story has a happy ending. In recent
years a new generation has found interest in
reviving Florida's decaying past. It is a movement
Herbert L. Hiller has long awaited and worked for.
His testament to this revival is a "Guide to the
Small and Historic Lodgings of Florida." The book
is a result of years of research and is believed,
Surprisingly, to be the first of its kind.
Another facet that distinguishes this guide
book is its perspective. The emphasis is on
history, profiles of the proprietors and the
inherent character of their lodgings.
Florida's past can be traced through these
hotels as they flourished with the coming of
railroad's and died when the tracks were played
southward. Some of the hotels were ruined by
hurricanes, others by the depression.
Some, like Everglades City's Rod and Gun Club


mark a regional prosperity now vanished. Still
others, like Miami Beach Hotel's Carlyle, Lesile
and Waldorf, are at the core of an area
redevelopment efforts. Like all good nostalgia,
each of the 92 lodgings profiled has a story to tell.
Hiller begins the tale in the Panhandle and
takes us through to the southermost Keys. Local
entries are the Riverside Hotel ("unique asset of
Fort Lauderdals's downtown") and DiVito By The
Sea in Hollywood irresistible e kitsch on the
ocean").
Other listings range from the traditional (The
Biltmore in Coral Gables) to the idiosyncratic (The
Pelican Inn. See inset). The spectrum of prices is
equally diverse.
There's Jacaronda Hotel in Avon Park where a
single can be had in the off-season for $10. For
those with a richer heritage there's the Brazilian
Court in Palm Beach where a suite can run to $650.
Whatever your tastes, there's a lodging described
to suit your needs.
Each entry includes all pertinent information
including prices of rooms and meals, if
applicable, seasonal availability and
reservations. Along with the nuts-and-bolts Hiller
attempts to capture a mood indicative of the
lodgings atmosphere.
At his best the.author weaves a spell marked by
a desire to encounter firsthand the experience
being described. Conversely, at its worst, the
prose rambles with the uneveness of a metaphor
taken too far. "The setting sun bathes the pink
Moorish tower a shimmering rose till a stealthy
mauve rises from the tented beach and purples
the dreams of Arabian nights."
In all fairness, it isn't easy spicing up a
guidebook and the overall effect is both
discerning and interesting, Hiller has produced a
noteworthy volumethat exposes viewpoints he
has long advocated: the revival of Florida's

vanishing culture and the patronage of lodgings
that embody that heritage.
The soft cover book has 268 pages and includes
50 line drawings by Charles Greacen. It is
available for $12.95 from Pineapple Press and at
local book stores.

Escape to Dog Island
by Remy Mackowski
The one entry in Herbert L. Hillers book that
embodies the essence of the word "get-away" is
The Pelican Inn on Dog Island. This barrierisland,
located an hour south of Tallahasee in the Gulf of
Mexico, measures 7 1/2 miles east to west.
On it a visitor will find twelve full time residents
100 private homes and the inauspicious Pelican
Inn. With only seven units, the inn is a perfect
retreat from the real world.
But be forewarned, the escape is complete. On
the island there are no telephones, radios,
televisions or stores. There's little to do but take
leisurely walks, relax, birdwatch, do some
fishing an of course relax.
Getting on or off the island means a ride on The
Pelican, a 34-foot shrimper that regularly makes
the 3 1/2mile trip. Guests staying at the inn must
bring their own food an supplies.
Each apartment is a complete efficiency with
two double beds, ac, ceiling fan and a full kitchen.
Sliding glass doors open to a wooden porch with
a view of the beach.
Visitors may also want to bring binoculars and
a camera. Three-fourths of Dog Island is an
established wildlife preserve and offers a perfect
opportunity to view rare flora and fauna.
But it that's not your cup of tea then you can
kick back on the beach, close your eyes and let
time wash away with the surf.

Special Confidential Report on Travis McGee Revised And Reissued


by Rachel Leach
John D. MacDonald's fictional hero, Travis
McGee, is the "subject" of a revised Special
Confidential Report prepared by the original
compilers and MacDonald experts, Jean and
Walter Shine. The new edition has been updated
to reflect investigations through The Lonely
Silver Rain, MacDonald's last Travis McGee
novel.
Entries in this definitive dossier range from
specifications of McGee's houseboat, the Busted
Flush, to McGee's employment background,
distinguishing scars, personality profile, and
artistic preferences. Publication coincided with
the dedication of Slip F18 at Bahia Mar as a
literary landmark.
This new edition is issued jointly by Bahia Mar
Resort & Yachting Center, the Florida Center-for
the Book, and Literary Landmarks Association.
Copies are available at $3.00 each from The
Florida Center for the Book, 100 S. Andrews
Avenue, Fort Lauderdale FL 33001. (Broward
County Main Library). Payment must accompany
order and checks should be made out to "The
Florida Center for the Book." Proceeds will benefit
the Florida Center for the Book.
Bahia Mar created and dedicated slip
number F-18 to the memory of author, John D.
MacDonald. MacDonald wrote scores of books in
his lifetime, but the most popular of these were
the 21-book series featuring the fictional salvage
consultant Travis McGee lived aboard his
equally-fictional houseboat, The Busted Flush at
Bahia Mar Marina in Slip F-18. Before the
dedication ceremony, slip F-18, Travis McGee and
The Busted Flush could only be seen in the
imaginations of John D. MacDonald readers.

Flush, said whenever he would take his boat out
people would always call out to him "Where's
Travis?". Likewise, avid McDonald fans have
been coming to Fort Lauderdale's Bahia Mar
Marina in search of the boat which, according to
the books, should have been docked at slip F-18.
The fans found only disappointment as a slip
numbered F-18 did not exist. But thanks to The
City of Fort Lauderdale, The Florida Center for
The Book and The Literary. Landmarks
Association, and Bahia Mar, Ed Glatz's boat will
be permanently docked in the newly created slip
number F-18 as a tribute to the late author whose
Travis McGee adventures thrilled and delighted
so many,
A crowd of approximately 200 people gathered
at the marina in perfect Florida weather for the
dedication. A song written and performed by
Mario Fig entitled "Thank you John MacDonald
for McGee" began the ceremony. Fig mentioned to
the audience that he was one of the many people
who had in previous years flocked to the Marina
in search of Slip F-18.
Jean Trebbi, Executive Director of the Florida
Center of the Book, whose idea it was to have the
MacDonald dedication, spoke of her hopes to
bring readers and writers together. Ms. Trebbi
conducted a television interview with MacDonald
in 1985, shortly before his final illness. Ms. Trebbi

hoped that the new literary landmark will inspire
reading of MacDonald's work.
Another speaker, Frederick G. Ruffner,
president of the Literary Landmarks Association,
said he hopes for many more dedications. Mr.
Ruffner spoke of how we must preserve our
literary heritage and prominent literary authors.
A close friend of MacDonald, Walter Shine, spoke
of the psychological importance to regard fiction
as fictitious even though we long to think it real.
Said Shine, "No longer will readers long forSlip F-
18. Today marks tribute to John D. MacDonald's
imagination."
Shine went on to say that MacDonald would
probably have mixed emotions about the
ceremony, because the author believed the
reader should supply the imagination. "A real F-
18 might dilute reader's imagination. But on the
other hand, nothing would have pleased him
more to have interest in his reading stimulated."
said Shine. Shine also added that the sponsors
should be congratulated for making the landmark
come true.
Mayor Robert Cox did the unveiling of the
plaque that will be posted at F-18 and suggested
that it be hung with extra security to protect it
from the college invasion and the many
MacDonalds fans among them soon to come.
The plaque reads as follows:
"Slip F-18 Bahia Mar Marina dedicated to the
Busted Flush home of Travis McGee fictional hero
and salvage consultant created by John D.
MacDonald, author 1916-1986 designated a
literary landmark February 21, 1987."
Richard Graves, Bahia Mar marketing director
and master of ceremonies, ended the dedication
by announcing that a bottle of Plymouth Gin,
Travis Mcgee's favorite liquor, would be placed in
the Bahia Mar Lounge for no one to drink but
Travis himself.

Safety


Opinion: Licensing Boat Operators


16


by H.W. Lange
Often just after a "headlines gathering" boating
problem there is a short-term attention to boating
safety. But lot of people never get the word as to
what is entailed by vessel safety. It is important
for them to pay attention to the subject, and a
boat drivers license should be mandatory for this
reason.
In Florida there is no law regulating the age or
ability of recreational boat users. Anyone can
buy, rent or borrow. Someone hands the boat
keys to a person -- and the instant skipper may be
underway. Novices on vacation are allowed to
float off without knowing how to right their
capsized catamaran, or what constitutes danger
for themselves or someone else at various speeds
in the ICW, the Bays, inlets and toward the Gulf
Stream.
In many ways Waterfront News territory is a
hot bed of boating safety problems. Beautiful
weather is general; narrow waterways are full of
boats; divers, sportfishers, very frequent
commercial ships, the Gulf Stream and a lot of
thunderstorms are offshore day and night; and
marina/motels are active. Even many
bar/restaurants have docks with immediately
adjacent cavorting and in-flight refueling.
A boat driver's license will put a lot more
thought into this scene. Ignorance and
misinformation cause much of the current
danger. At present the principal difference
between other types of transportation and boats
is that there is no requirement for an operator
license or permit for the non-commercial skipper.


There are those who feel licensing will not halt
the careless and inattentive or those who lack
common sense. Some of these are even scoof-
laws. The licensing process would point to the
fact that driving a boat is a privilege which can be
withheld or revoked.
Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Yet one can
buy the state boat registration, put the numbers
on and affix the tax decal and shove off. Lots, in
probable fact the majority, of skippers never
heard any requirements (or bothered to read
anything) as to USCG and state safety equipment
matters. Even less so have they heard about
driving/navigating, or that the USCG might
terminate a voyage because of unsafe use, or that.
negligent operation could apply to what they are
doing and result in a penalty. No licensed officer
is required on any vessel from a sailboard up to
200 tons. Yet the rules of the road apply to them
all.
Skippers mostly do not have to worry much
about this because law enforcers are usually
going to warn or advise. Ipso facto a skipper is
really browned off when a fine is handed out in
terms of a no wake zone or a manatee area.
The reason for licensing boat drivers of every
category is for their safety, for their passengers
and for the security of others. That is why a
captain's license is already mandatory for
commercial vessels and for differing categories
thereof (by tonnage, by purpose of the vessel, for
pilots, engineers, communicators, deck officers,
etc.).
Whether you like it or not one must face up to
the fact that handling a water borne vessel is a


whole lot more than driving other means of
transport. The rules of the road are not mere laws
which bestow a positive right of way. They are
written to help avoid danger and even the person
"in the right" must give way in avoidance of risk
taking. Many pleasure boaters do not know that
they should operate with professional standards,
because they can be sued and the case will be
handled under admiralty jurisdiction of a Federal
Court.
Editor's Note: State Senator Tom McPherson is
expected to sponsor a boat operator licensing bill
in the Florida Senate. State Representative Bob
Shelley may sponsor it in the House.
It proposes to require a license for residents
who operate a vessel with an engine of 10
horsepower or better and ties it into testing and
the vehicle drivers license. Anyone under 12
years of age could only operate under direct
supervision of his or her parent or guardian. A $4
fee would be established, as well as a point
system for violations and the suspension of
operating privileges.
Senator McPherson's bill, would also create a
"vessel safety advisory board" to advise the
Department of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicles on matters to be tested and standards
for grading operator test. The effective date of the
legislation would be October 1, 1988.
Senator McPherson's Boat Operator
License Bill has been filed (S.B. #649) and
assigned to the Natural Resources and
Conservation Committee which has not as of yet
scheduled it for committee debate.

The Pompano Beach Seafood Festival had its
roots planted at the rodeo when people at the
weighing stations began to picture and- taste
delicious seafood dishes.
Last year, more than 100,000 happy souls
attended the festival, and this year's festival
promises to attract even more as word spreads
among fun-loving seafood lovers.


For those who love excitement, the U.S.

Locally sponsored multi-hull

sailors in 1000 mile race


S by M.G. Swift
Laurent Gaudillant believes "a racer should be
/ a boat builder, too; and a,designer ought to be a
sailor." Of course, Gaudillant, 26, considers
himself all the above, "or at least I'm trying to be,"
he shrugs with a shy smile. His 34-foot carbon
fiber winged mast dominates the Fort Lauderdale

rigging shop he works in. Gaudillant and his
crewmate, Jody Culbert, hope to dominate the
seventeen-plus boat fleet in the 1987 Worrell 1000.
An international field of multi-hull sailboats, at
or under twenty feet, will head north from Fort
Lauderdale for a fourteen day race to Virginia
Beach, 1000 miles iorth. From May 3rd through
the 16th, racing sailors from the Soviet Union,
United States, England, France and Holland
among others will hop up the East Coast through
twelve check points averaging 80 miles apart in
this twelfth annual competition.
Gaudillant observed in last year's race that the
multi-hulls participating were using twenty year
old technology and materials. The transplanted
Frenchman resolved to apply some of the state-
of-art techniques learned racing and building
large multi-hulls in Europe upon a twenty footer
and race it in this year's Worrell 1000. He views
the United States racing circuit as "virgin
territory" for his new ideas in design and boat
building, and ripe for the picking after the
country's recent America's Cup victory which
perked such an interest Fn sailing as a "major
sport".
Gaudillat's employer, Mike Woodward, agrees
and is co-sponsoring the sailor's bid to win the
1987 Worrell. Woodward is gambling that his
boatwright's innovations will signal a new
leading edge in multi-hull design and he'll be well
positioned to capitalize on his Worrell
investment.

transfer his big boat tech' to the twenty footer

with winged mast and enlarged sail area; if he
and Culbert can avoid bad luck making their way
up the coast, and if his competition isn't devising
methods and materials even beyond his
spaceage aerodynamics and carbon fibers,
Laurent Gaudillant could become the first locally
based sailor to win the Worrell 1000 since Tom
Wickenhauser of Fort Lauderdale crewed with
race founder, A. Michael Worrell, in the second
race's winner in 1977.
The 1987 Worrell 1000 will begin at 10 a.m. on
May 3rd at the beach directly opposite the
Sheraton Yankee Clipper Hotel in Fort
Lauderdale. After stops in Fort Pierce, Cocoa
Beach, Daytona and Jacksonville, the multihulls
will race north and east through Georgia, the
Carolinas into Virginia finishing at Virginia Beach
on the lower lip of the Chesapeake Bay, May 16th.
Gauldillant and Culbert will be racing in the
"Worrell-20 Class" among other 20-foot custom
built rigs. Other sailors will be racing in Hobie 18
and Prindle 19 classes, with serious efforts
firming-up in the Tornado, Nacra 5.8 and Formula
20 classes," says Mike Worrell, currently race
director.

A windward

Sj passage

to Jamaica .


by M.G. Swift
Fort Lauderdale's Nueva Zida nosed out
Jamaica's Spranzie by one minute and eleven
seconds after six days of sailing 811 miles from
Miami to 'Montego Bay via the Windward
Passage. Making 186 and 185 miles respectively
the first two days out, the fleet then generally
encounter every other day lulls to Jamaica,
observed Carl Hammond, owner of Nueva Zida.
Hammand's 48 foot Choey Lee, skippered by Doug
Sherron, threw everything it had into a heavy air,
pre-dawn finish into Montego Bay. Coming from
behind to edge Spranzie from Kingston, Sherron
took advantage of the smaller J-30's light air
characteristics in some last minute windy
weather.
Broken engine belts and stiff steering problems
did not deter Sherron, Hammond and Nueva
Zida's navigator, Peter Bolda. Nor did mishaps
slow Ugly Duckling which won the PHRF class
including the Fort Lauderdale sailboat .and
Spranzie. Bill Plant was knocked unconscious by
Ugly Duckling's swinging boom the third day out.
The rest of G.K.G. Sharp's crew had to double up
on watches until Plant's recovery. The Swan 39
beat Nueva Zinda and Spranzie by just over a day
in elapsed time, crossing the finish just ahead of
second placed PHRF finisher Iroquis of Miami by
twenty-one corrected minutes.
Iroquis, skippered by Jack Delisser nearly beat
maxi-boat Eclipse into Montego Bay.
Scaramouch won the IMS maxi-boat class and
was the first boat in overall with an elapsed time
of 4:21:17:01 corrected to 4:07:46:01. Skipper
"Bugs" Baer joins the likes of Ted Turner, Robert
Johnson and John Kilroy in winning the 1987
Johnnie Walker Cup.

prior to the race (Marty Spencer at 792-7028 or
Bill Jordan at 998-1009).
Prizes will be awarded for first, second and
third place in each race class at an after-race-
party.
Gulfstream Sailing Club in June will conduct a
three race series for people new to sailboat
racing..These Sunday regattas will be open to the
public, both sailboat owners and crew. Look for
the Summer Novice Race dates in June's
calendar.
