It's that time of year again. Fresh cooked
lobster, succulent smells, drawn butter. The little
critter that everyone loves to eat, the Florida
spiny lobster, is almost back in season again.
With all the divers that will hunt them, it might
be a good time to review the rules of the game.
Captain Mike Lamphear of the Florida Marine
Patrol hopes the new divers and veterans will all
act responsibly during the upcoming season.The
actual state season starts on July 26th. There will
be a special two-day season on July 20th and
During the two-day state season divers will be:
permitted six lobsters per day, or a total for the
two-day season of twelve.
Captain Lamphear stated, "Next year the.two-
day season will be consolidated to run with the
federal two-day season. This year the federal
two-day season will run on July 18th and 19th.
The federal rules state that divers will be
permitted six lobsters per day. The regular
federal lobster season starts on August 6th.
Captain Lamphear reminds us that divers using
the special federal two-day season on July 18th
and 19th, after diving, must take their boat
straight through state waters to the docks..If-a
diver gets lobsters in federal waters, and stops on
the way back in to dive in state waters, they could
be arrested. State waters go out to three miles
offshore on the eastcoast and nine miles offshore
on the west coast.
When the regular state season begins on July
26th, the limit will be twenty four per boat. The
same size rules still go, with carapaces
measuring three inches, or tails measuring five
and one-half inches.
You still must not separate the carapace from
the tail until you're back on shore. Females with
eggs are still illegal, and eggs must not be
scraped from the tail of the female. It is still
against the law to shoot the lobster with any type
of gun or spear.
Next year Captain Lamphear says that there
will be changes in the lobster season schedule. It
will be pushed back to August 6th so that fewer
females with eggs are taken or disturbed by
divers. This year as of July 2nd every diver will be
required to have a lobster measuring device with
them in the water. The lobster must be measured
UNDERWATER, not on the boat. The reason for
measuring the lobster in the water is that it makes
it safer for the lobster if they are short. Measuring
the lobster back on the boat, means if the lobster
is short, it must be thrown back into the water.
Many divers aren't aware the lobster in many
cases never makes it to the bottom. There is
usually a hungry Cuda that makes the lobsters
trip to the bottom short. By throwing the lobster
in the water, the divers cause itto be in extremely
Another new change this year, according to
Captain Lamphear, is that divers will be unable to
'take the shovel nose lobster, or slipper lobsters, if
they are female with eggs. Up to now, there
'wasn't any protection at all for the shovel nose
The best way to capture the lobster is with a net
and tickle stick. This way you don't stick your
hand in a coral hole and get bitten by a frightened
moray eel. The tickle stick lets you goose them
out of their holes and into your net. This is good
for both you and the lobster. If the lobster is a
short, or a female with eggs, no harm has been
done to them and they can be safely released. If
you grab them by hand, you almost always
damage them. Their antenna gets ripped off,
leaving them defenseless, and causing an
interruption in their growth cycle.
If all of the divers in the state follow the rules,
there will be enough for everyone. Happy hunting.

I want to thank the staff and newspaper because
in the past ten months we have almost doubled
our business. Cal
I'd like to take a moment from my busy
schedule to thank you for Mr. Steve Hoffman's
article entitled "Deep wreck diving precautions".
Since our organization is quite involved in the
pursuit of safer procedures for deep
decompression diving and development of new
and safer decompression schedules through our
research, we thoroughly endorse Mr. Hoffman's
policy of no decompression diving and restricted
depths of 130 FSW for general, recreational sport
diving. As I read through his article, I heard echos
of many lectures I myself have given on the same
topic. All sport divers in this area would be wise
to adhere to his advice. The cult of deep
decompression divers that exists internationally
is not an egotistical, macho bunch rather a
serious group of pioneers dedicated to
exploration of wrecks that lie beyond the reach of
normal safe diving pursuits. To aid this cause,
they devote themselves to developing highly
specialized equipment and endure planning
nightmares with regard to weather and personnel
in order to insure proper conditions for diving of
this nature, and lastly, they spend countless
hours researching and communicating the topic
to develop practical application of procedures
from research in an area of relative unknown. The
physiological considerations require
sophisticated knowledge of physics and
computers to account for the body's ability to
react to the complex processes incurred with gas
mixtures under great amounts of increased
pressures and the even more difficult processes
incurred during long periods of decompression
with air mixtures and pure medical oxygen...In
short, the training agencies offer no
acknowledgement of this type of diving, and
ignore the problem that exists when untrained
divers and instructors attempt it. without the
proper guidelines, personnel, equipment and
conditions. Adding to this problem, a large
number of desirable wreck sites exist in Broward
County waters that are just far enough beyond
the safe limits recommended to lure a innocent
novice to their decks. We hear lots of horror
stories about.divers attempting to dive a wreck in
200 FSW solo or with single cylinders and no
decompression procedures that apply to a
penetration of that magnitude. Fortunately, the
Artificial Reef Program of Broward County and
the sport diving industry have not had the
embarrassment of a tragic accident due to the
foolhardy pursuit of a few rather reckless
To summarize, we, the management and staff
at Adventure Divers, and the deep wreck diving
team thoroughly endorse Mr. Hoffman's article
and his recommendations to the diving community.
Until proper training for sport divers is available
and the general diving public is educated in the
serious dangers inherent in diving beyond safe
recommended limits, all sport divers should stay
within their limitations. Much research needs to
be done in this area, regarding the nature of safe
procedures and updating outdated dive tables
and decompression schedules. Until this type of
information is available and proven safe, the
training agencies cannot broach the topic. Thus,
we are left in a void.
It is information and recommendations like Mr.
Hoffman's that need to be taken seriously by the
adventurous diver contemplating exceeding his
limits of training and experience. Our hope is that
it does not fall on the deaf ear of ignorance. Carry
on Mr. Hoffman.

Your June issue looks fantastic! The graphics,
lay-out and informative stories are really
something I look forward to each month!
Some issues are never going to die and I
suppose the argument about boat wake versus
speed will never be ended. So be it.
However, your May issue contained a rather
long letter from a Mr. Robert H. Fisher about
speed and noise problems. Despite Mr. Fisher's
apparent excellent background in yachting, I
suggest he is only making a guess as to the
conduct of the professional power boat drivers.
Yachtsmen they are not.
In support of this position, I live, along with
several hundred other families, along the area
from the Seventeenth Street Bridge out to the
jetties. Believe me, the high performance boats
hit the throttle as soon as they pass the "no wake"
sign south of the Bridge and fly out to the ocean
at speeds that I would estimate to be at least 40 to
50 miles per hour. They return the same way.
Along with the speeding and weaving is the
noise level which is absolutely intolerable. Close
your windows, turn on your air conditioning, turn
up your TV- and they still rattle the dishes on your
The answer? A lot of mumbo jumbo about
decibel levels and speed limits, but nothing done.
This situation goes on constantly and it is
particularly heavy during the weekends.
As to the Jungle Queen and the Booze Cruise
that follow the same routes, these latter two are
minor and their trips are limited. Watching and
hearing the same high blast power boat go in and
out a half dozen times in thirty minutes is the real
measure of people's disregard for others.
As an interesting sidelight, I was discussing
this problem with a representative of the Fort
Lauderdale Marine Patrol on the only telephone
call I have made to them and a passing boat was
so loud that we had to interrupt our conversation
until the boat was well out to sea. My satisfaction
with the call amounted to the fact that the patrol
person did agree that it was awfully loud.
This is not a dead issue.

I've got a new boat that has caused me nothing
but grief. The motor stalls, leaks on intake hoses,

Any reputable dealer will correct all reasonable

The 1986 Legislature enacted the Beach
Management Act to enable the state to
systematically begin to restore Florida's badly
eroded beaches. The program envisioned would
cost about $50 million per year. But the
Legislature delayed a decision until 1987 on how
to fund this major beach rehabilitation program.
The Florida Shore and Beach Preservation
Association (FSBPA) suggests the following

alternative sources of funding
1. The State Severance Tax -- The unobligated
portion of the state severance tax amounts to
about $25 million per year. This money now goes
to the state's general revenue fund.
FSBPA suggests this unobligated portion of the
severance tax be dedicated each year to the
Erosion Control Trust Fund.
There is sound logic to this approach. The
purpose of the severance tax is to compensate
the state for depletion or degradation of
state owned natural resources by mining, eg.,
phosphate, oil and gas deposits. Thus, it is
appropriate and logical to use these funds to
rehabilitate and restore its natural resources.
Beach restoration fits this purpose perfectly.
2. 1% State Sales Tax For Three Months -- One of
the most innovative recommendations is this:
Enact a 1% state sales tax for three months --
December, January and February. This would
raise about $450 million.
The $450 million would be placed in the Erosion
Control Trust Fund and invested at the highest
interest possible. A 7 1/2% interest rate would
bring in $30 million annually without touching the
principal. This approach would fund Florida's
beach needs in perpetuity.
3. A 3/100 Of An Additional 1 Cent Sales Tax --
Legislative leaders are looking at the possibility
of raising the state tax by one penny to pay
for a huge backlog of "infrastructure" needs
caused by our fast growing population. Included
are such things as prisons, roads, sewers, water,
A penny sales tax would give the state an extra
$1.1 billion. Florida's beaches needs would be met
by dedicating 3% of this sales tax penny to the
Erosion Control Trust Fund.
4. A Tourism Promotion Surcharge On The Sales
Tax -- The original beach management bill last
year included a provision to levy a tourism
promotion surcharge on the sales tax of such
tourist-related expenditures as hotels,
restaurants, bars and car rentals. The proposed
surcharge would amount to only .0025 percent of
such taxable sales.

Dock owners fight fire lines
by M.G. Swift
As the Waterfront News was going to press.
dock owners from Hendricks Isle, Isle of Venice
and Southeast 15th Street were going before the
Fort Lauderdale City Code Enforcement Board.
County fire protection officials want waterfront
property owners with four or more boat slips to
install fire lines at their docks. These 2.5 to 4 foot
water lines would be attached to firefighting hose
and noozles for use in the event of a fire.
The property owners like Calvin Landan of
Hendricks Isle disagree, "...firehoses are not safe
and fire extinguishers are better suited for the
Another dock owner, Frank Sobchak, also of
Hendricks Isle, cited a non-binding opinion he
received from the National Fire Protection
Association (NFPA) which states, "Hose rack,
hoses and standpipe cabinets shall not be
required..." at "marinas, boatyards, yacht clubs,
marina facilities associated with
condominiums, boat condominiums, and
multiple berthing facilities at multi-family
A condominium association president, Steve
Summerville, reported that his complex's docks
on Southeast 15th Street have been cited for lack
of fire lines and hoses. His group was to have
appeared before the city code enforcement board
June 23rd along with Landau, Sobchak and
several other dock owners cited.
Assistant City Manager Peter Witchen
anticipates the board will give parties a60 day
extension to put the lines in using the.smaller 2
1/2 inch pipe. County officials had initially given
the dock owners aJune24 deadline to comply with
the South Florida Building Code. Landau,
Sobchak and Summerville's condo group would
have to pay for the fire line materials and
The building code uses the NFPA standard as
guidelines only. Local fire officials take a
"broader" view. Landau feels it is too broad and
that other dock owners in Fort Lauderdale and
Broward County may be forced to install fire lines
at their own expense because of the county's
vague definitions and "illogical, ill considered,
irrational and inconsistent" regulations.
Whatever the case, several dock owners have
pulled permits to build fire lines accepting what
they view as the inevitable.

Waterfront News Volume 4 Issue 4 July 1987 5
Florida's sandy beaches are a great natural resource
and have become the state's most important asset for
attracting residents and tourists. However, access to
our beaches is frequently difficult and sometimes
impossible. Oftentimes, private clubs or hotels will try
to restrict the use of the beach to guests. The general
public is not allowed to use the facilities or parking;
therefore, if they want to use the beach, they must gain
access by way of neighboring areas which attimes can
be of great distance.
The area of Florida beaches that is in public
ownership is the area seaward of mean high water or
the "wet beach". The wet sand beach adjacent to
privately owned dry sand beaches are often mistaken
as off limits to the public. Indeed some beaches are de
facto private simply because they are not easily
accessible to the public. However,'the Department of
Natural Resources (DNR) maintains that all the
unvegetated sandy beaches in the State of Florida
below mean high water are public beaches. The
shoreline of the east coast from the St. Mary's River at
the Florida-Georgia border to Cape Florida at thesouth
end of Key Biscayne contains approximately 330
miles of sandy beaches, according to Paden E.
Woodruff with the DNR. The coastal responsibilities of
the DNR are outlined in Chapters 161 and 375, Florida
Statutes and the responsibility of major concern of the
Department is insuring public beach access.

Ft..Lauderdale could, have the oldest ship in the world.

As luck would have it my article in last month's
Waterfront News did exactly what I hoped it
would. It brought several responses, visits and
phone calls from interested mariners. One of them
has really done his homework in respect to what
Ft. Lauderdale needs in the way of a Marine
Museum and the idea is worth consideration and
Bob Bassett has lived and worked in Ft.
Lauderdale for 10 years and has seen the need for
a Maritime Museum Society to showcase the
unique vessels of the world..I spoke with Bob at
Riverbend Marina where he is an independent
sign artist. He lives there aboard "Euphoria" his
1956 Schneider Ketch. Bob has noted that Ft.
Lauderdale is really and truly the "Venice of
America" with its unique canal system and
maritime tradition. He is also disappointed that
we have nothing to show for it. Not so much as a
marker on the site of Ft. Lauderdale on the North
fork of the New River from whence we get our
city's name. He thinks that maybe we got blown
off course by the Spring Break thing and now that
it's light has been dimmed and all but snuffed out
its time to beam in on our waterway heritage to
attract visitors and local pride.
His concept is along the same lines that I and
others who contacted n)e envision for Ft.

enjoy and learn history from; just like the Cable
Cars do in San Francisco. There are small sailing
craft, paddle wheelers, steamboats, work boats,
power boats and historic vessels of all sorts that
could be obtained, restored or replicated to be a
part of this fleet.
Several years ago Bob Bassett copyrighted the
plans for reconstructing the oldest ship in the
world- the Royal Ship of Cheops. It was carbon
dated by archaeologists back to 2500 BC. This
original is still intact in the Egyptian Museum at
the Great Pyramid. This boat was a river barge
and a replica would be able to ply the canals of Ft.
Lauderdale easily. Imagine this 142 ft. craft with
her 19 ft. beam. She certainly would attract
attention. With the expertise of the Ft. Lauderdale
boat builders this vessel could be easily
reconstructed. It could become the focus of the Ft.
Lauderdale Marine Museum fleet. This ancient
masterpiece of Egyptian boat building is an
engineering and carpentry wonder for that era. It
could be duplicated here by several processes
that we have developed through, if you will, our
space age technology.
Just think of a gathering, like the Tall Ships
had, with all the world's small historic vessels
and replicas. The Ft. Lauderdale Marine Museum
Society hosting a convention with boats of
Scandinavian origin, the animal hide craft of the
Irish Monks, balsa log rafts and outriggers from
the South Pacific islands, gondolas from Venice,
fishing dorys and lobster boats from Canada's
maritime provinces, voyageur freight canoes
from the Great Lakes, keel boats from the
"SeaCraft of Lauderdale"

Lauderdale's International Boat Show to be
at Bahia Mar next 3 year
Characterized as a landlord-tenant falling out,
Bahia Mar Resort and Yachting Center, and the
sponsors of the Fort Lauderdale International
Boat Show resolved their differences in May. The
show will again be staged there this year, October
29th through November 26th.
Earlier in the spring officials from the trade
organization and promotion company that put on
the fall boat show were scrambling to find
another Broward County location large enough to
handle it- and talked of moving to another county
if need be. The smaller Fort Lauderdale Spring
Boat & Sport was, in fact, held at Pier 66 instead of
the traditional Bahia Mar location this past May.
"We had reached an impasse and it seemed as
if there was no solution," said Kaye Pearson,
president of the show management firm,
Bahia Mar proposed a rent increase from
$200,000 to $450,000 and a cut in the amount of
space the fall boat'show could use. Resort.
officials have considered the boat show a
disruption to hotel operations and not-an
economic benefit to Bahia Mar. Boat show people
maintain that their event pumps at least $15
million to $20 million into the local economy.
In the end compromise was reached. The rent
will be raised only to $300,000 for the 1987 show,
with available space about the same as in
previous years. Rent hikes for the remaining two
years will be tied to increases in the consumer
"On some of the issues, we weren't as far apart
as it initially appeared," Pearson continued. "It
was a matter of attitude. Once that was solved,
we both were committed that we wanted the show
at Bahia Mar."
"It's been a good marriage all along and it
continues to be," observed Skip Field, president
of the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida, which has sponsored the show since'
The agreement also applies to 1988, '89 and '90
Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat & Sport Show.
A provision is included which could cancel the
contract if Bahia Mar gave nine months notice
that construction would take place prohibiting
continuation of the shows there.
Calendar Now Available
by Ginny McAleer
NEW YORK, NY -- The "1987/88 International
Boat Shows Calendar," a booklet listing major
boat shows held in the United States and 17
countries worldwide, has been published by the
National Marine Manufacturers Association
(NMMA), the trade association for the
recreational boating industry.
"Boat shows are the prime marketplace for the
sale of marine products," said Frank Scalpone,
NMMA's executive vice president. "The calendar
is of particular interest to the industry in the boat
NMMA contacted private boat show
management companies, sponsors and marine
trade associations to compile a complete and
current listing of major boat shows. Each listing
includes the show name, location and dates
through 1989 where available, and the name and
address of the show management company and
sponsor. The listings are arranged alphabetically
by state and country.

Miami Summer Boat Show
has ninth run July 10-15
MIAMI, FL -- The Miami Summer Boat Show,
one of the largest summer pleasure boat exhibits
and marketplaces in the U.S., will have its ninth
annual run July 10-15, 1987, again on Miami
Beach, Victor J. Logan, the show organizer
More than 400 boats ranging in price from
$7,000 to $165,000 were sold by dealers and
manufacturers at last year's Miami Summer Boat
Show, which is held annually in the air-
conditioned, 250,000 square-foot Miami Beach
One of the fastest growing consumer shows in
the nation, the Miami Summer Boat Show now
attracts buyers from the Bahamas, Caribbean
and Central and South America as well as from
South Florida where retail sales of pleasure boats
and marine accessories is a $750,000,000 annual
market according to Florida Department of
Revenue sales tax records.
"For dealers and manufacturers, the Summer
Show has become a 'must' event," Logan said,
adding: "and the public is aware that it is a one-
stop supermarket for price comparisons for all
their marine needs at the end of the model year
when bargains are really available."
Hundreds of boats, including 19-footers in the
$9,000 price range, will be featured in the '87
Show, ranging up to high performance racers and
luxury yachts in the $250,000 and up category.
Exhibits will include many sizes and prices in
sportfishing boats plus family runabouts and
center consoles, some sailboats, as well as
windsurfers, inflatables, hovercrafts and much
more. There will be displays of outboard engines,
safety equipment and every other imaginable
marine accessory as well as nautical clothing
and gifts. Also featured is the latest scuba diving
gear with underwater vehicles and cameras.

Is your bareboat
by Captain Fred Edwards
What makes a charterboat a bareboat? The
wrong answer to this question can be costly to
captain and owner alike. In case of collision or
other casualty, if the Coast Guard doubts whether
a so-called bareboat charter was bona-fide, it can
confiscate the boat. The next step will be a court
appearance. The costs of the entire procedure,
including attorney fees, can be ferocious. Even if
you win the case and are allowed to keep your
license, the Coast Guard does not reimburse you
for those costs.
To avoid such legal pitfalls, charterboat
captains should understand the two parts of a
If a church group, for example, contracts with
an owner to assume possession, command and
control (Let's call it PCC) of his boat for a period of
time, they have formed the first half of a bareboat
However, the contract releasing PCC to the
charter group merely shows intent. Actually
carrying out that intent completes the second half
of a bareboat charter. The owner must in fact
Transfer PCC and every member of the charter
group must understand that the group has taken
over PCC. In case of collision or other casualty,
the group must satisfy the Coast Guard that it and
not the owner or owner's representative was
actually in charge. So the contract by itself wins
only half the battle.
Sure, the attorney who writes a bareboat
contract will probably state that it will stand up in
court. (Several admiralty attorneys in a certain
boating center in Florida insist that their
contracts are ironclad.) The attorney who wrote
the contract might well win the case but
somebody is going to pay his fee. This cost and
the legal hassle might be. avoided if, when
challenged, the charter group can convince the
CoastlGuard that they have full control.
WHAT MAKES A BAREBOAT CHARTER LEGAL?
Here are the technical Rules summarized from the
Marine Safety Manual (CG-495) 30-10-10E(5)
a. A provision that full control, possession and
navigation is vested in the charterer.
b. A provision that the master and crew be paid by
c. A provision that all food, fuel and stores be
provided by the charterer.
d. A provision that all port charges and pilotage
fees be paid by the charterer.
e. An insurance provision, to the extent of
covering liability not covered by the owner's
f. A provision granting the right to discharge for
cause the master or crew without reference to the
g. A provision for survey upon delivery and
h. A provision that the vessel may be used only
for pleasure purposes of the charterer, his family
and guests, and that the vessel shall not
transport merchandise or passengers for hire.
Suppose an 80 foot boat is being offered for
charter. (A number of vessels in this size range
are operating currently out of Ft. Lauderdale,
Miami and the Tampa Bay area.) A group of 15
charters the boat and asks the charter company
for somebody to assist. They select you ftom a
list of names provided by the company and they
hire you. You ask yourself, "Will I be the owner's
What you do when you come aboard will
answer that question and will determine whether
the boat keeps its bareboat status.
If you operate as safety officer, you might
answer a charterer who asks what the Rules of
the Road say about a certain crossing situation.
Or you might notify the charterers of shoals or
Woterfront News Volume 4 Issue 4 July 1987
other areas the boat can safely transit. You might
also instruct them on proper use and operation of
an engine with which they are unfamiliar. So far,
the boat is still a bareboat.
But if you operate as captain and make
decisions that a person exercising possession,
command and control would make, you have
risked becoming the owner's representative. Try
this question: When you anchored at five o'clock
last evening, was it because the group said,
"Captain, anchor here." or was it because you
said, "Hey, we're going to anchor at my favorite
cove tonight and tomorrow morning at nine
o'clock we're going over here...."
If you made the decision, that 80 foot boat is
probably not a bareboat and thus falls under
Subchapter T (CFR 46, Parts 175-187) of the Code
of Federal Regulations. Because it is carrying
more than six passengers, it is considered to have
to be an inspected vessel. Unless it has an
-Inspection Certificate issued by the Coast Guard,
it is not only operating illegally, but probably also
does not meet the tough safety standards
demanded of inspected vessels.
Of course, we often see others breaking the
Rules of the Road and other boating regulations
and watch the perpetrators racing off like
children playing a game of tag. But when the
Coast Guard boards your charterboat and asks to
see your license, the game is over. Their rules,
like them or not, reign supreme.

Lobster Hunters Beware. This exciting sport is
regulated by laws that are strictly enforced.
Breaking these laws can cost you more than just
a minor fine. The exact consequences that you
will encounter for unlawful violations will depend
upon the leniency of the officers and magistrate
involved. The-illegal capture of lobster out of
season can and has resulted in the direct seizure
and impoundment of boaters' vessels.
Dive boats, unless they possess a year-round
lobster license, are restricted to a maxi-mum limit
of 24 lobster per day. This also stands true for
private boats and individual beach divers. If you
are planning an enjoyable season of lobster
hunting, it may beadvisable to drive to your local
dive store and purchase a measuring apparatus
that is specifically designed to determine the
length of lobster. The tail must measure 5 1/2
inches. The carapace, which is the section
in between the horns and the end of the head,
must measure a minimum of 3 inches. These
figures must be accurate with no allowance for
error. As of this year's lobster season, it will be
mandatory that lobster be'measured before being
removed from the water or you will be considered
in direct violation. Egg bearing females may not
be pursued as game. The eggs will be located
under the tail in an orange cluster described as
looking like orange caviar.
There is a short season followed by a longer
season in which lawful capture of lobster is
permitted. Both seasons are effective as of 12:00
midnight, and run through till 12:00 midnight of
the given expiration date. The Florida short
season is official from July 20-July 21. This is the
time to sharpen up your skills for the longer
season which runs from July 26 March 31.
Remember, midnight is the magic hour.
Spanish lobster, which are characterized by
their white-spots and petite bodies, are fair game
all year. Shovel-Nose lobster, which can be
identified by their flat heads, are also year-round
prey. At this time no present restrictions exist
regarding quantity or size limit for Spanish or
Shovel-Nose lobster. The Florida Marine Patrol
only protects the Florida Lobster.
The south side of the Lauderdale-By-The-Sea
pier offers excellent hunting ground for large
families of lobster. The bottom composition of the
first reef, half the length of the pier, consists-of
flat ground with many holes in which our spiney
friends take refuge. The second reef, beginning
slightly past the pier, plays home to a world of
large coral heads that provide lodging for
countless amounts of lobster. The depths here
range from 15 to 25 feet which allow for a full day
of bottom time. Another stretch of reef which
plays host to our delicious side kicks is known as
Barracuda Reef. Access to this reef may be
acquired through John Lloyd State Park. This
location is'directly south of the Port Everglades
cut. Depths here are consistent with those of
For more information regarding lobstering
consult your local dive store or Marine Patrol.
Many dive stores offer specialty instruction and
equipment directed towards this unique form of
underwater hunting. I wish to extend thanks to
Jeff Jones and the Florida Marine Patrol for all
their helpful information.

The Miami Artificial Reef Program has moved
close to purchasing a submarine from the Navy.
According to Ben Mostoff the director of the
Artificial Reef program, the paper work is still
somewhere in the Navy bureaucracy, but Mostoff
thinks the arrangements will be completed soon.
Mostoff stated the submarine is 311 feet long
and will be dropped in 60 feet of water. To make
the submarine safe for divers, each compartment
will have a 5 fobt. in diameter hole for easy and
safe exit. Mostoff said, "There are eight
compartments, so the diver will never be more
than 39 feet from a way out.
He also stated, "Right now there is no conning
tower, but if we get the proper funding a facade
will be built on the pressure hull."
Because of the recent fight to keep the
commercial fishermen away from the artificial
reefs, Mostoff says, though the wreck is going to
ibe dropped in federal waters where trap fishing is
allowed, they are not allowed to fish in waters
less than 100 feet. The proposed dropoff point will
be in sixty feet of water.
The date for the sinking is up in the air but
Mostoff hopes it will be somewhere around
Editor's Note: A 40-foot steel sailboat resembling
a submarine was in 70 feet of water to form an
artificial reef off ForYan'derdale in April. The new
reef is located approximately 200' northeast of a
previously deployed tugboat, the "Jay Scutti".
The Loran C coordinates of the new "B.H Lake"
Reef are 14265.2 and 62106.2, according to the
Broward County Artificial Reef Program.

New Report On Fish Trap Impacts
From Littoral Society
The American Littoral Society has just
published its Resource Management Report
Number 87(1), entitled "Fish Trap Impacts on
Artificial and Natural Reef Fish Populations," The
20-page publication focuses on the effects of
commercial fish trapping on tropicals and
juvenile reef fishes. Written for both
professionals and laymen, "Fish Trap Impacts"
provides factual information that can be used by
any concerned person or organization to
effectively evaluate regulatory decision-making
regarding the use of fish traps in reef
"Fish Trap Impacts" reviews how reefs function
to attract and concentrate dense fish
populations. Using numerous biological studies,
the report then summarizes fish trap
performance in terms of quanitites, species, and
fish sizes normally caught. Tying all this
information together, "Fish Trap Impacts" then
analyzes the probable negative effects of
continued trap use, with particular emphasis on
sedentary reef fish communities located in
Copies of the report may be requested from The
American Littoral Society, 75 Virginia Beach
Drive, Key Biscayne, FL 33149. The Society is a
national non-profit organization dedicated to the
study and conservation of marine life.

The skipper's kingdom is a boat
by H. W. Lange
As a skipper you have no peer and you are
master of all you survey. Enjoy! That's why you
have and love the job. And for most of us we'll
never come closer to a crown. But beware the
fickle finger of fate which might lead you to
Listen very closely to what Benjamin Franklin
said. Admit that he could easily be speaking of
your skippering procedures as he looked at them
and muttered, "For the want of a nail, a shoe was
lost; for the want of a shoe, a horse was lost; for
the want of a horse, a rider was lost...".
Up to a point you are the "rider" likely to lose
your kingdom for want of a very simple "nail"
which you are ignoring every time you cast off. In
many cases not only property but lives are lost in
the chain of events.
Nail these items before that happens.
Life jackets. "PFDs" in government lingo. You
must have a throwable PFD (Class IV) (ring or seat
cushion) at hand ready to chuck overboard. You
must also have one wearable PFD per person and
be sure they are not prettily in original wrappers
thus hard to untie and likely a messto don. Do not
store them under a pile of other things.
Fire extinguishers. You must have enough for your
type vessel in useable condition and a proper
place. Have them even in your powered small
boat. About'ten percent of the boats I examine
literally cannot find the extinguisher without a
shakedown. Your plan to "jump overboard" does
not relieve you of the requirement.
Flares. "VDS" in government lingo.A radio is no
substitute- for when you need a VDS you need
even more than the three mandated. You want to

be seen over the'horizon; thus have red meteors,
or add the far greater safety of parachutes.
Costly, but your life is at stake. Sure, a few
handheld stick flares can help, but not until
someone is alerted. Also a mirror should be in
your survival pocket.
A real big threat to your pride and joy is
sinking. Horses swim well but do not rest secure
in someone telling you that your steed is "self-
bailing". If you want to pass the Coast Guard
Auxiliary exam you must have a manual
dewatering device (lingo for bucket or best of all a
manual bilge pump with hose to reach your bilge
corners). Sure, I know that a battery cover, or a
cooler, have been used, but Benjamin Franklin
would say "no-no".
For lots of you there is one real chain-reaction
"nail" which can bring your whole kingdom to an
end. Scarcely 5% of boats I see launching use
chocks. Vehicle wheels shudder, or even turn on a
slick ramp; vehicle clutches heat up; winches
strain or jam; skippers yell at mates to hold the
foot brake down; handling lines often not rigged;
sometimes children still in thetowing vehicle. Yet
no chocks. Get two good ones, tied to long leads,
and carry them for each launching/recovery.
Now let's look at five other matters where one
quite often sees no preventive action to nail them
-properly. All of this is pretty cryptic so call your
nearest US Power Squadron or Coast Guard
Auxiliary Flotilla for details on these matters.
An extra fully charged battery is a very wise

Single-handed sailors finish round-the-world race
by Tony Lush and Kathy Giblin
The BOC Challenge 1986-87 culminated in
spectacular fashion, with the first six boats
crossing the finish line in Newport, Rhode Island,
less than six hours apart. The solo sailors, who
have now completed a grueling single-handed
circumnavigation of more than 27,000 nautical
miles, were led over the finish line by John
Martin, sailing the 60-foot TUNA MARINE. Martin,
the 32-year-old South African seaman who
captured the first Leg of this Race, from Newport
to Cape Town, sailed between the Brenton Reef
Tower and the R-2 buoy in Narragansett Harbor at
1:50.20 p.m. EDT on Thursday, May 7, to end his
eight-month-long sojourn. Amidst a flotilla of
spectator craft and under sunny, blue skies,
Martin smiled broadly and raised his arms
victoriously as a freshening southwesterly
breeze carried him, and his craft over the line.
Martin made the 5,300-mile voyage from Rio de
Janeiro to Newport, the fourth and final leg of the
'round-the-world event, in 26 Days, 00 Hours, 50
Minutes, 20-Seconds. His time eclipsed the record
for Leg IV, held by 1982-83 BOC winner Philippe
Jeantot, by two days, 17 hours. In spite of winning
two of the four Legs in this Race among Class I
boats, Martin placed fifth on Total Elapsed Time
in Class I, a result of a luckless second leg from
Cape Town to Sydney. His overall elapsed time,
147 D, 08 H, 14 M, 00 S, still betters Jeantot's '82-83
winning record by almost 12 days.
S"I'm quite happy with the end results, in
g~eral," said a tired but happy Martin at a
packed press conference in Newport. "L(entered
(this Race) to win...I thought I had a good chance.
the second Leg (during which he suffered multiple
equipment failures) killed me, though; I lost eight
days there, and that's too much time to make up.
It's a great Race, and I've got a great boat, but I
had to get to Newport first...it was as though my
life depended on it."
Martin had little time to savor his hard-fought
victory, for barely four hours later, he was joined
over,.the finish line by four of his fellow
competitors. Leading the group hard on Martin's
heels was Frenchman Titouan Lamazou, who

sailed his 60-foot ECUREUIL D'AQUITAINE over
the line at 6:02.37 p.m. EDT. Lamazou, who earned
first place in Class I on Leg II, from Cape Town to
Sydney, had an elapsed time for Leg IV of 26D, 05
H, 02 M, 37 S. His Total Elapsed Time for the Race,
137 D, 17 H, 36 M, 06 S, put the 31-year-old

accomplished the voyage more than 21 days
faster than the 159 it had taken Jeantot in 1982-83.

preventing him from capturing first place honors
overall. "The first Leg was very damaging for my
overall finishing position," he explained. "When
my autopilots failed and my boom broke twice,
and I had to steer by hand for five weeks...well, I
just could never quite recover the time I lostthere
to Philippe," The time Lamazou lost on that Leg,
some three and half days, is almost exactly the
amount of time by which he ultimately lost first
place to Jeantot.
Lamazou's dockside celebration Thursday
evening had not even started when fellow
Frenchman Philippe Jeantot crossed the finish
line aboard CREDIT AGRICOLE III to win his
second BOC Challenge in as many runnings. The
"Flying Frenchman," so aptly named, charged
across the line at 6:46.45 p.m. EDT, just 44 minutes
after Lamazou. The large fleet of press and
spectator craft, content to remain on the finish
line to witness the amazing parade of finishers,
erupted into cheers as the man who would turn 35
years old in'just a few hours raised his arms in a
triumphant gesture and openly laughed.
Jeantot's Leg IV time, 26 D, 05 H, 46 M, 45S, was
only good enough to earn him third place in.Class

four year ago by two and a half days -- but it was
more than ample to keep his lock on first place,
which he had garnered at the half-way point in the
Race. Jeantot's winning time, an incredible 25
days swifter than his 1982-83 feat, was 134 D, 05
H, 23 M, 56 S. His clear-cut dominance of this
marathon event for the second time erased
whatever doubts there may have been as to who
is currently the undisputed king of long-distance,
An ecstatic Jeantot sprayed hundreds of
dockside press and well-wishers with Veuve
Clicquot champagne, then turned the bottle onto
himself for a celebratory showering. His victory
was perhaps all the sweeter, knowing that his
dreams of a second victory could have easily
been shattered when CREDIT AGRICDLE'S
shrouds began breaking one week into Leg IV.
"I knew that if I had even one problem between
Rio and Newport, I could lose the whole Race,"
said a relieved-looking Jeantot later. "So when I
saw the wires on the shrouds going, I said, 'I must
put in somewhere; I can't push on like this.'"
Due to speedy teamwork ashore, Jeantot
managed to keep his stay in the Brazilian coastal
town of Recife to only five and a half hours, and
continued the race full-force. He then closed the
135-mile gap between himself and Lamazou
steadily over the next two weeks, working his
way back up through the fleet.
When asked which victory he appreciated
more, his runaway win during 1982-83, or this
more competitive first-place finish, Jeantot
immediately said, "This one...because there was
far more competition this time. But I enjoyed the
.first Race more," he emphasized. "There was
\more time to enjoy what I was doing, more time to
experience the human adventure. This Race,
there was no time for that; someone was always

right behind you, and we all wanted to win."
Winning Class II on Leg IV was Frenchman
Jean-Luc Van Den Heede, sailing the 45-foot
marvel LET'S GO. Van Den Heede crossed the
Brenton Reef finish line at 5:40.20 p.m. on Friday,
May 8, ahead of ultimate overall Class II winner
Mike Plant, of Jamestown, R.I., who charged
across the line in front of hundreds of hometown
well-wishers at 2:10.22 p.m. on May 9. Plant,
whose overall winning time of 157 D, 11 H, 44 M,
44 S earns him a $15,000 check, bettered Jeantot's
winning '82-83 record by almost two full days -- a
significant accomplishment, given that. Plant's
AIRCO DISTRIBUTOR is six feet shorter than the
winning 1982-83 CREDIT ACRICOLE.
Van Den Heede's Leg IV time was 26 D, 21 H, 10
M, 20 S, earning him first place among Class II
boats for the second time this Race. The amiable
Frenchman also won Leg III, from Sydney to Rio
de Janeriro, in his Class. His Total Elapsed Time
for the Race, giving him a firm hold on second
place in Class, was 161 D, 00 H, 07 M, 16 S.
"I could not be happier with my finish and my
placing," grinned an exhuberant Van Den Heede
during his arrival celebration. "We tried hard, my
little boat and I, and we did far better than I
thought we would at the beginning of the Race...I
suppose I had a little luck, too!" Van Den Heede's
remarkable achievement with his narrow, 45-foot
sloop is, quite obviously, attributable to his skills
as a sailor, contrary to the opinion of the humble
Plant's Leg IV time, some 20 hours more than -
Van Den Heede's, clocked in at 28 D, 01 H, 10 M, 22
S. His well-padded four and a half day lead over
Van Den Heede going in to Leg IV was cut down
somewhat, but the 36-year-old Plant held onto his
first-place position, and arrived in Newport to an
overflowing, and triumphant, hometown crowd.

r Classical Splash Makes Big Waves -
by Colleen Mahoney
(FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--) The International
Swimming Hall of Fame's Classical Splash May
23 was a unique blend of musical harmony and
aquatic artistry featuring Maestro James Brooks
and the South Florida Symphony Orchestra and
national synchronized swimmers. The water
show was reminiscent of the days of Esther
Williams and the spectacular Aquacades.
Classical Splash served as the kick off event to
th'e Broward -County Tourist Development
Council's Spring Break Reunion. Spring Break
Reunion hosts Frankie Avalon and Connie
Stevens made a special appearance and
welcomed the standing room-only crowd.
Headlining Classical Splash was 1987 national

The Effects of Channelization on the Estuaries of South Florida
by Marilyn Damon & William Haynes
The key ecosystems that support and maintain
the health and productivity of the oceans that
surround South Florida are the estuaries.
Beginning in the late 1880's man begin to alter the
freshwater wetlands of South Florida and in turn
started the process of change that slowly began
to bring about negative changes in the dynamic
equilibrium of the estuaries. In the early 1970's
the C-38 canal was completed. Between those
significant dates miles and miles of canals,
government and private channels were dug to
give man mastery over the surface waters that
for thousands of years dictated the natural cycles
of the plants and animals of South Florida.
To truly understand the ecological problems
that now impact our natural system we must gain
some understanding of the major alterations
man has imposed on this system. The
channelization of the wetlands has created major
problems for all of the natural systems of South
Florida, freshwater and marine.
The information following deals with the
effects of channelization on the critical estuaries
that are the wellspring of life to our surrounding
Historically the Caloosahatchee River was the
only major riverine system supplying freshwater
to a South Florida estuary. The other estuaries
received their water as a result of "sheet flow".
Sheet flow is an overland flow of water that
created and maintained the vast Everglades
sawgrass marsh. The source of this southward
flowing water was area rainfall and an overflow
of water from the southern shore of Lake
Okeechobee. This lake overflow once provided
water to the northern part of the Glades. Lake
Okeechobee itself receives much of its water from
the Kissimmee River which carried waters
southward from the chain of lakes in the upper

water from the Kissimmee Valley and the
Everglades, the ecological balance that existed in
the estuaries for thousands of years began to
The major effects of channelization centered
around the following four patterns of freshwater
surface flow that controlled the ecology of the
1. Quality of the water The channelized
surface water enters the estuaries with benefit of
the cleansing action of the marsh. Urban,
suburban, farm, and dairy runoff all add polluting
agents to the water that flows into the estuaries.
2. Quantity of the water entering the estuaries.
The dredged channels dump water into the ocean
in amounts far different from the historical
pattern. The change in quantity of the inflow of
freshwater has a negative effect on the ecology of
plant and animal community of the estuary.
3. Timing of the water'entry into the estuaries -
The channels carry the water to the ocean on a
schedule that meets the requirements of man
rather than that of nature. The arrival of
freshwater in amounts different from the age-old
cycle upsets the biological triggers of many of the
important estuarine species and creates
ecological havoc in their normal life cycles.
S4. Location of the surface runoff to the sea.
Man's channels now determine where the
freshwater runoff enters the ocean, upsetting the
original salinity balance in both the historic and
man altered entry sites.
Man can utilize the water management system
now in place to simulate the natural hydrological
pattern of quantity, timing and location of runoff.
The problem of water quality however is a much
more difficult problem to solve. South Florida
citizens must have the will to restore significant
areas of marshes to restore water quality in the
natural system. Only time will tell.

Sea Critters of the Month, Sea Turtles
by Bryan Brooks
Each year at this time a creature crawls ashore
in the middle of the night on the east coast of
Florida. This creature has been doing this for
millions of years. It is the loggerhead turtle.
The southeast coast of the United States is the
second largest nesting area for loggerhead
turtles in the world. Over 12,000 nests were
recorded in Brevard County alone. From May
through August, the mother loggerhead comes
ashore in the middle of the night. After carefully
digging her nest, she deposits from 100 to 150
eggs. She then carefully covers the nest and
swims back to the sea, never to see her babies.
The loggerhead is on the endangered species
list, as are the other turtles. They live from 30 to
60 years, and mature around fifteen years. It is
known that the same mother loggerhead will
Come ashore several times during the summer
-nesting season. Tags have shown that they come
ashore close to where they nested before. It is
thought that she has the ability to store the sperm
,from one mating and lay several nests from that
Loggerheads have suffered much with the
advancement of man on.the Florida peninsula.
We have covered their beachfront habitats with
condominiums. Our street lights very often cause
the baby turtles, after they are hatched, to swim
toward the lighted streets instead of the ocean.

Southeast coast of Florida also hurt the turtles
because after each meal they have been known to
toss the garbage out to sea in plastic bags. One of
the main foods for some turtles is jelly fish and
man-o-war. Thinking the plastic bags are jelly
fish, the turtles swallow them. They are unable to
digest the plastic and die. Another problem is
boaters who run over the turtles. Loggerheads
and other turtles are in the reptile family and are
air breathers. Because of the increase in boat
traffic in Florida, very often turtles are run over
In Broward County, divers are. beginning to get
involved with the loggerhead. Bob and Jeanne
Wershoven from the Broward County Audubon
Association have been documenting turtle life
offshore. They swim off the first reef several
nights a week. On seeing turtles they tag and
measure them, putting the information in a
National Fish and Wildlife computer. Through this
slow but effective method, they have discovered
many interesting facts. Work on turtles has
always been done on the mothers when they lay
their eggs: But males never come ashore. The
Wershovens, in water tagging, are helping to
uncover the mystery of males and sub-adults.
Generally, Bob and Jeanne encourage divers to
Sget involved with the in water tagging concept,
but first to get the proper training. Also, to even
touch a sea turtle without a proper permit is a
federal violation. If any diver is interested in the

in-water tagging program, write Bob and Jeanne
Wershoven, 2962 Waterford Drive South,
Deerfield Beach, Florida 33441.
Also Bob and Jeannie are learning that the
turtles they are tagging in the water are different
than the turtles that come ashore to lay their
eggs. The nesting turtles are generally
.loggerheads, but the turtles they tag in the water
are sub-adult green turtles with some hawksbill
turtles thrown in.
By patiently diving the same area month after
month, they are also discovering that the same
turtles come back summer after summer,
disappearing during the fall.
Bob states the data collected so far indicates
that the loggerheads follow the major currents of
the world. Turtles they have tagged here have
been found off Europe. Bob feels that loggerheads
mate in the spring and that this occurs in the
estuaries in North Florida and Georgia.
For divers to encounter the loggerhead in the
water, the meeting is one of excitement and awe.
During their night tagging, Bob and Jeanne
always take the turtle to the surface, as they are
air breathers. This allows the turtle to breath and
calm down so the measuring and tagging can be
done safely to the turtle.
So, as you start your summer diving in Florida,
think turtle, enjoy the sight of this prehistoric
animal, and become concerned with their
Adopt a seaturtle nest
Sea turtle populations are declining, and the
animals are now on the Endangered Species list.
To prevent sea turtles from disappearing from
South Florida beaches, the Broward County
Audubon Society Sea Turtle Conservation Project
is sponsoring an "Adopt-A-Nest" program.
As an adoptive parent, you receive a
notification of the date your nest was laid, an
invitation to visit the Pompano Beach Sea Turtle
Hatchery for a sea turtle release, a Certificate of
Hatch stating the date the nest hatched and
number of turtles released to the water, and a
photo of hatchlings.
To participate in "Adopt-A-Nest", send a check
payable to BCAS at P.O. Box 16343, Plantation, FL
33318. Please include the name of the adoptive
parent, address, and telephone number.
Adoption fees: $50 Adult Group/Organization
Nest-$25 Family Nest-$15 Individual/Children's
Your tax deductible donation will be used for
sea turtle education and research programs.
