Schipperke: the boatman's best friend


by John Simpson


So you've decided you want a rare dog so it can
double as a conversation piece, or maybe even
attract members of the opposite sex, huh? But
you're put off by the Catch -22 that the rarest dogs
are huge, ugly and slobber all over everybody.
Have I got news for you! The world's rarest dog
ain't big, It ain't ugly. It doesn't even slobber.
Believe it or not, it doesn't even stink when it's
wet!
Got your interest yet? Listen up, Matey; I'm not
even warmed up yet. You can actually have your
puppy chow and eat it too... the rarest dog in the
world is actually bred for boating!! We're talking
about genuine sea-faring boat-dog here. And to
ice the cake, it's cuter than any dog alive, small
enough to be an ideal yacht, condo, or apartment
dog, and eats Dobermans for breakfast.
Now that you've written me off as a crackpot
with dog tales wilder than Ollie North's expense
account, bear with me a little longer. You
obviously have never met a Schipperke. The first
time I met one was in a grocery store parking lot
over New River Tunnel. I couldn't for the life of me
figure out why everyone was crowding around a
black cat on top of the vinyl roof of an old
Plymouth. I couldn't figure it out that is until I got
close enough to see this "cat" had a dog snout and
no tail. You see, when you come up behind one of
them lying down they look very much like black
cats because of their pointy cat-like cat ears,
which always seem to be standing at attention on
their foxy heads. But once Schipperkes stand up
they look more like little bears because of their
stocky build. A stroke of the back further serves
to show the difference in coats, which unlike a
cat's is thick, glossy, and rather coarse.
Now being a boater, and having owned a large
variety of dogs, some pedigreed and some which
weren't even high school graduates, I quite
naturally flipped over this dog and began to do
some studying. I could already envision the
possibilities even before reaching the library.
Meanwhile, back at the library: the Schipperke
was originally bred centuries ago in the Flemish
provinces of Belgium. Unlike many small breeds,
the Schip' was not down-sized to be a lap dog
(yap-dog?), but started out as a working
companion of "Guild" workmen of Belgium. They
were, and still are, used on barges in Belgium as


Schipperke oversees young helmsman
guard dogs, and some actually retrieve lines and
pass them from barge to barge. Because of their
hard-working sea-faring occupation, the Schip
was given the nickname "little captain". The
Schips' were brought to this country in 1889, and
were recognized and registered with AKC in 1904.
Winston Churchill specified in his will that his
ride the funeral barge that took Mr. Churchill's
coffin down the Thames River.
The Schip' is a staunch, natural watchdog with
guarding instincts, very suspicious of all people
not members of his family, but will accept anyone
after a proper introduction. He has an insatiable
curiosity and investigates all sounds or
movements. They are unaware of their size. I
can vouch for their fierce devotion to protect the
family. They feel a constant sense of duty and
carefully discriminate between strangers and
friends. He is very gentle with children
Schipperkes are coal black with a short, stocky
body. They weigh from 10 to 15 Ibs. They have a
foxy looking head with pointed ears. Their coat is
slightly coarse and of medium length with a ruff
around the neck and shoulders and a culotte of
outstanding fur on the tailless rear end. The coat
needs no grooming other than an occasional
brushing to keep it clean and shiny. Schips' tiny
feet have no long shaggy hair, and so do not carry
mud and sand in the boat or home. Their fur is free
of odor, even when they are wet. Think about
THAT when choosing a liveaboard companion (or
crew members?).

The following is an open letter dated July 1, 1987
to Mayor Robert Cox of Fort Lauderdale from the
Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice Dock Owners
Association about dockside fire lines (see "Dock
owners fight fire lines", page 4, July 1987

Ask Big Al


- --------
i Dear Readers
Please write your problems to the Waterfront
News as I cannot answer your request on the
Phone if it is an emergency. I am at the Fort
Lauderdale Coast Guard Auxiliary on Saturdays
(601 Seabreeze) for vessel exams and decals
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Al




Question-
I have a 24-foot Thunderbird with a 10 outdrive
that runs fine. The only problem I have with it is
the boat's steering. The wheel is centered o.k., but
I can only turn the boat in a sharp turn to
starboard and not to port. The boat also drifts to
the side while going ahead. Can you advise.
Joel
Answer-
I would disconnect my outdrive first and try to
center the drive by swinging it left to the end and
then right to the. end. After that center the unit,
checking the stops and making sure they are
adjusted. On the bottom of-each outdrive there is
a fin that can be set for drift or direction. After all
that is done, recenter the wheel.


0-
My Chris-Craft exhausts blow out a lot of water
and then a little bit of water followed by large
flow, ect., ect. Are my water pumps working? Do I
need new impellers or is this normal?
Dave
A-
Water collects in your exhausts and mufflers
and is blown out as the engines run. If the pumps
were not working, water would not be coming out
of your exhausts. I don't know when your pumps
were checked last, however I would check the
belts and pumps as they are critical to the
operation of your engines.


Dear Boat Onners--
Speaking as a trained mechanic and boat
owner (power and sail), I am as frustrated and
disheartened asall of you. The letters and calls I
receive about ripoffs, shoddy, work, no
guarantees, and, in general, no interest or feeling
towards the work done appalls me.
My feeling of satisfaction for a job well done,
the purr of a well tuned motor, the inner feeling of
rapport between customer and mechanic is now
missing. The boat owner now distrusts the
mechanic's knowledge and mechanic (sadly


enough) wonders what he can charge. The
training schools, the helper courses are now self-
elective and diplomas and follow up manuals are
practically nonexistent.
In the classes I teach at the Coast Guard
Auxiliary, I am questioned continually "Where
can I find an honest mechanic?" Not "Where can I
find a good knowledgeable mechanic?" All I can
answer is find a shop who will stand behind their
work. A good dealer who has a shop with a
factory trained man at his repair facility is your
best bet now-a-days if for no other reason than
the factory warranty. A mechanic who
specializes in your brand of motor or boat is
another one to try if he guarantees his work. But
a competent mechanic is not cheap, as he will
take the time needed for the job. And doing the job
right is the name of the game. If you find a good
mechanic or shop, love that person. Trust him,
he's worth his weight in gold.

Tunnel board named


A 15-member board was named by U.S.
Congressman Clay Shaw (R-Fla.) to provide
citizen input about proposed changes along
Southeast 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale. The
group of local officials, area homeowners and
businessmen will participate in the commission
of a feasibility study aimed at replacement of the
aging 17th Street Causeway.
The study will examine the possibility of a
tunnel or high-span bridge at the site. Advisory
board members will be consulted about their
opinions of recommendations and options to be in
a final report.
Board members named Fort Lauderdale
businessman Ralph Marrinson chairman at their
first meeting July 13th. The board expects to meet
again in mid-September. In the meantime officials
from the Florida Department of Transportation
are scheduled to choose a consultant for the
study by August 1st.
With the decision earlier in the year to build a
convention center at the Southwest foot of the
causeway and the existing traffic problems (both
car and boat), Representative Shaw sponsored a

Winterfest Boat Parade changes course


This year's Winterfest Boat Parade through
Fort Lauderdale will be different from those of the
past. Planned for Saturday, December 12th, the
flotilla of decorated yachts and holiday
costumed crews will be making their way up the
waterways earlier in December than usual.
The fifteen lead boats in the parade will begin
up the New River rather than at Port Everglades
where the remainder of the vessels will assemble.
Passing, Bubie.r,Park on th e north bank lust east of
the Andrews Avenue Bridge, the lead boats will
provide revellers, gathered at the park for the


first annual "Riverfest", a taste of the parade to
come on the Intracoastal Waterway. The front
fifteen boats will merge with the hundred or so
other yachts at the confluence of the New River
with the ICW leading the nautical procession up
the waterway as far as Lake Santa Barbara.
The Riverfest at downtown Fort Lauderdales
Bubier Park will feature food, drink and
entertainment. Besides the lead boats passing
down river, the Riverfest will have large screen
televisions plugged 'into l" ive 'fiok-up of entire
boat parade on the ICW.

You are a cruising sailor or a liveaboard and

The City of Fort Lauderdale is seeking
permission from the State of Florida and the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to build up to 32 boat
slips at the Southwest 7th Avenue boat ramp
area. This is one of the first projects of the
Riverwalk.' City staff indicated that it will take
several months to get on top of the paper work
before construction of the new docks can begin.

Notch turning on economics and ecology


by M.G. Swift

Port Everglades authorities want to create a
turning notch for container ships in the area
along the Intracoastal Waterway viewed by local
environmentalists as an irreplaceable mangrove
forest basin and a threat to manatees.
At a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers public
hearing in Fort Lauderdale in mid-July, Port
Commission Chairman Jean Fitzgerald and the
port's executive director Thomas Burke
presented plans for a $20 million expansion of the
facility along the western bank of the ICW to the
Dania Cut-off Canal. A 900-foot by 800-foot
turning notch, 46 feet deep, would require the
dredging of 18 acres of mangroves that border a
manatee refuge. Burke told the Army Corps panel
that the container ship expansion plan is
dependent on the notch and that southern
development of the port is "vital to the economic
growth of South Florida".
Others disagreed, pointing out alternatives to
destroying the mangroves and endangering
wildlife. Charles Lee of the Broward County
Audubon Society suggested expanding the
former Tracor basin, just to the north of the
manatee refuge to serve as a turning notch. Bob
Mikes with the Sierra Club maintained that a
turning notch isn't needed at all, playing a tape
recording of a past Port Everglades Authority
Board Meeting wherein then Port'Executive
Director James Connally and Commissioner
Robert Barber argued that a container facility
could be built without it.
Captain Robert Jackson of the Port Everglades
Pilot Association maintained that such a facility
without a turning notch would not be safe and
could present a pollution risk to the ICW. Port
planner C.J: Simandl-pointed out that the Tracor
site was not available at the time the expansion
plan was devised and isn't in the correct location


to serve the proposed container docks to the
south.
In a slide show presentation, Sherwood Wilkes,
a biologist at the Discovery Center on the New
River in Fort Lauderdale, pointed out his opinion
that the proposed turning notch is located deep
within "a healthy, depicted an ecosystem
supporting a variety of birds, fish, invertebrates
and several species of mangrove.
"There is no other significant basin type forest
in the county. This is it," followed up the Sierra
Club's Mr. Mikes. "It's a shame to lose this
because it's a little more economically feasible
for the port" than other alternatives.
To mitigate the elimination of the forest, the
port has proposed to spend $1.5 million to create
23 acres of new mangrove plantings on the east
bank of the ICW bordering John U. Lloyd State
Park and give the State 52 acres of mangroves


that remain after the turning notch is finished and
contain a manatee area.
Audubon Society's Mr. Lee observed that the
port's mitigation plans propose "fringe
mangrove" not replacing the basin mangrove
ecosystem.
"The substitution of mangrove seedlings for an
established, mature forest that is supporting a
variety of wildlife is hardly a trade-off," said
Brenda Marinace of the Enviromental Coalition of
Broward County.
The Army Corps of Engineers called the public
hearing to air public opinion before deciding
whether to permit the port to build the turning
basin. Written opinions received by the Corps
before July 30th will be considered along with the
hearings testimony when a permit decision is
made.

Covering the Waterfront


by Bobbi Belanger
For the fourth year in a row United Cerebal
Palsy of Miami has chosen to use South Florida
Jazz as a vehicle by which to raise money for the
care and research of this disabling condition.
This year, the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami
Beach will host this event, and more than 100jazz
musicians will donate their time, talent and
energy to help.
This is a benefit through which we allbenefit,
because some of the finest musicians in the world
will perform in a "Marathon of Love" from 9:00
p.m. Friday, to 9:00 p.m. Sunday, August 14-16,
1987.
Howard Miller, President of UCP of Miami, will
be the moderator, as he has been in the past three
marathons. This year, as in past, stages will be
both inside and poolside.
Some of the musicians who will perform
include: Rare Silk, Montreaux, The Rippingtons,
Images, Don Legge Quartet, Otello.
Alice Day and Friends (Alice is the talent
coordinator and will as she always does, work to
promote jazz in South Florida through her voice
and her heart); saxophonist John "Spider" Martin;
former Count Basie trumpeter Pete Minger;
vocalist Sandy Patton; Jon Frangipane and the
Jazz Crusade to End World Hunger '87; a group of


young musicians from North Miami Beach High
School who call themselves the Jammen Jazz
Quarter; vibraphonist Tommy Toyama; Miami's
own Tom Moon; the fabulous latin sounds of
Miguel & Company; the melodic flute of Nestor
Torres and the "Velvet Scat" himself, Dana Paul
and the Nantucket Sound. So much more talent
that this column does not afford space, but for the
price, you can't afford to miss this. A weekend
pass for the full 48 hours is a $10 tax-deductible
donation to United Cerebral Palsy. Treat
yourself and others who need you. The
Fontainebleau Hilton Resort is located at 4441
Collins Avenue on Miami Beach. See you there!!
Coming up is the second in a series of four
concerts at the auditorium in the Main Library,
Broward County, is LauderJazz at Dusk. The first
concert with Sandy Patton, Ira Sullivan, Jon
Frangipane, Ann Kirkpatrick and Dr. Bob Agnew
was well received and enjoyed. Don't miss the
next three! These concerts, scheduled on the first
Thursday of each month (July, August,
September, October), run from 6:30 -9:30 p.m. and
are held at the Broward County Main Library,
downtown in the 300-seat, acoustically perfect
auditorium. There is not a bad seat in the house.
Coming up for August 6th is Billy Butterfield and
His All-Star Dixieland Band; Tommy Toyama,

CORAL GABLES -- The U.S. House of
Representatives approved an Appropriations bill
July 1st that includes $1 million for a research
project at the University of Miami (UM) to
examine the variations of fish populations in the
Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea.
The project calls for the university's Rosenstiel
School of Marine and Atmospheric Science,
(RSMAS) in conjunction with NOAA's National
Marine Fisheries Service, to study the variations
in fish populations and to determine the causes of
those changes. This understanding would then
lead to the formulation of federal regulations that
could help maintain a constant supply of fish.
The proposal would expand a program, called
FOCI/FOX, currently underway in the Pacific
Northwest, where population variations of
Alaskan pollock are being studied.
Rep. Dante Fascell, (D) Florida, proposed the
project when he learned of the striking
similarities between the fisheries in the Pacfic
Northwest-and the Southeast. Fish populations in
both areas are subject to variations.
"We will be better able to understand fisheries
and forecast their size to help develop healthy
and strong fish populations so critical to the
economies of Florida and the entire region," said
Rep. Fascell.
Three other members of the Florida delegation
played key roles in obtaining House approval:
Reps. Claude Pepper, Bill Lehman, and Earl Hutto,
all (D) Florida. The Commerce-Justice-State
Appropriations Bill, with the RSMAS fishery
study funding attached, now goes on to the
Senate, where Sen. Lawton Chiles, (D) Florida, is
working on a similar proposal for the Senate
Appropriations bill.
Rep. Hutto, the senior member of the Merchant
Marine and Fisheries Committee,.added: "This
new program will be the base for an international
cooperative effort to study the tropical and
subtropical fish population which is vital to this
region."

Yacht Club Challenge
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., -- The Newport Harbor
Yacht Club has announced that the 1988 U.S.
Yacht Club Challenge will be held April 6-10, 1988
in the waters off North Beach.
The U.S. Yacht Club Challenge is an inter-yacht
club race series designed to determine the best
yacht club in the nation by testing the sailing and
racing skills of the teams as a whole rather than
testing boats or individual skippers.
The event is being organized and hosted by the
Newport Harbor Club. Based on their racing
achievements over the past two years, 12 clubs
will be invited to participate in the race. Each club
will send a team comprised of their best sailors to
race in boats supplied by the Newport Beach
Yacht Club. The U.S. Yacht Club Challenge has
'been held biannually since 1984.
"We will be able to once again determine the
best yacht club in the United States," said
Newport Harbor Yacht Club Vice-Commodore
Andrew Zimbaldi. "The concept of the 'club racer'
is one dear to yachting tradition, and we feel that
competition such as the U.S. Yacht Club
Challenge gives these sportsmen an opportunity
to shine."
In the 5-day U.S. Yacht Club Challenge, ocean-
going racing vessels are used, and this year's
teams will sail in the new Schock 35, Mast Head
Rig yachts. The regatta will be conducted as a
Class IV event, and USYRU certified judges will be:
used.

Heads-Up Trailering

by Charley Calkins
Getting ready for the big day on the water isn't
always as simple as jumping in the boat and
taking off. A certain amount of preparation is
necessary.
This is true especially when trailering your
boat. The trick is to get the boat to the water, and
then get it in the water- smoothly and safely free
of any headache-producing complications that
can put a damper on the day's fun. It's worth it to
keep your trailer well-maintained, and to take a
few precautionary steps before setting out.
To begin with, check your trailer's tires,
including the spare. Problems often occur on the
road because tires are underinflated. When
pressure is too low, tires quickly get very hot and
become weak. Soon, the treads split up and the
tires fail. So, in addition to eyeballing them,
measure the tire pressure with a gauge..It's also
wise to make sure the wheel lug nuts are good
and tight.
The boat needs to be secured to the trailer at
both ends. The safety chains need to be checked,
too. They're a definite must by law. They give you
an additional attachment of the trailer tongue to
the tow vehicle's frame. They should have some
slack, but they shouldn't hang too close to the
ground. Should you ever need them in an
emergency you will definitely want them to do the
job.
Before pulling out, double check all of the
trailer lights and turn signals. If the tow vehicle
has extra side mirrors, make sure they're
positioned for maximum visibility. Also, some
time before the launch, the winch cable should be
examined. Make sure it's in good condition, not
frayed in any places.
When you get to the launch site there are a few
things you can do before you begin. The idea is to


be ready, so that you don't waste too much time
actually on the ramp. Load the gear in the boat;
unplug the trailer's wiring from the car; if you
need to, remove the taillight assemblies; make
sure the engine is raised and the drain plug is in
place; and remove the tie downs, leaving only the
winch cable connected to the bow eye. If you have
a trailer that requires a wet launch, you should let
it sit for about 15 minutes to let the wheel
bearings cool. They become hot during travel and
are more likely to take in water if they are
submerged in cold water while still hot.
Perhaps the most important thing you can do at
this point is to take a minute and observe the
launching conditions. This way, when the time
comes, you'll know how to react to any currents,
cross winds or slippery spots on the ramp.
When launching, keep in mind that you
shouldn't get the trailer any wetter than
necessary. Back down the ramp until the
waterline is almost half way up the wheel wells.
Use this as a starting point for finding the best
depth for the trailer and your individual situation.


Trailers with rollers probably won't need to go
this deep, while bunk trailers may need to be
backed deeper into the water. Give the winch line
slack and unhook it. There should be someone
holding mooring lines, guiding the boat as it slips
into the water.
Loading the boat is often a bit trickier. To
center the boat properly, you probably won't
want to back the trailer in as far. (Some dry
launch trailers don't need to be submerged at all.
Their capture areas are specially designed to
center the boat and guide it out of the water and
onto the trailer.) When it's lined up, attach the
winch cable and pull the boat onto the trailer.
Then, you might want to edge the trailer a bit
deeper in the water, while cranking at the winch,
to make a smooth, easy load.
Remember there are several types of trailers
and that each ramp is set up differently. Be sure to
check out each situation, know your trailer and
its capabilities and you shouldn't have any
problem getting set for the big day of fun on the
water.

Swimming


Dane:


not


by Bryan Brooks
I was nine years old at the time. The weather
was perfect and school had just been let out. The
beach at Las Olas and Atlantic was deserted. It
would remain so until about noon, when people
would slowly start coming out on the hot sand.
It was a different time; it was 1949 and Fort
Lauderdale was a sleepy town. The tourists were
gone. I was happy because I had the whole
summer to look forward to. A large, muscular
man came up to me. He asked if I could swim. My
small child figure paled next to him. His name
was Frank Dane and he was captain of Fort
Lauderdale's lifeguards. I remember nodding my
head. His voice had an accent, which I would later
learn was Danish. He followed me down to the

water's edge. I swam out a few yards and did my
best impression of the Australian crawl. He called
for me to come out of the water. He then took the
time to show me how to swim correctly. After
watching me in the water for a few minutes, he
waved and walked back to the lifeguard stand. I
had learned how to swim, thanks to Frank Dane.
In the following years growing up in Fort
Lauderdale, I saw an awful lot of Frank Dane. My
world, as a child, would revolve almost entirely
around the ocean. Because of this, the muscular
Danish man, Frank Dane, captain of the
lifeguards, would be a permanent memory of my
childhood. For me the sea was always a place to
come home to when things got bad. I would run
East until my paws hit salt water. Then I knew I
was home. More than likely Frank was there
waiting for me.
Frank died recently. He had retired from the
city in 1973, but you could still see him walking
down East Las Olas near his apartment. He
always remembered me and would smile. As an
adult on the city's police force, my contact with
Frank was generally on my motorcycle during the
college season. He was captain of the guards and
I was a city policeman, but we were always able
to get along because of our common bond, the
ocean.
As a proper salute to a fallen comrade, the
city's lifeguards gathered near South Atlantic and
5th Street. It was almost sun down. A lifeguard's
rescue boat was brought down to the sand.
Former lifeguard, Len Hottinger, a minister,
performed a simple ceremony around the rescue
boat. Inside the boat was a beautiful wreath and
the ashes of the man who played such an exciting
part of Fort Lauderdale's history. Around the boat
were people who came from walks of life. Some
were rich, some were powerful, some were poor.


Former lifeguards gathered to pay their last
respects to their fallen Captain, May, 1987

The men surrounding the boat were older and a
hodgepodge of the city's history. The one thing
they all had in common was that they, as young
men, had all.worked for Frank Dane.
The boat was pushed off the shore and Gene
Bergman, director of the lifeguards and former
lifeguard under Frank Dane, started out to sea.
Beside him, paddling out on surf boards, were
Lucky Jordan, former city aquatics director; Jack
Chew, a 'Fort Lauderdale police captain; John
Morgan, the city's pools director; and John
Barbare, a lifeguard for over twenty years.
Just over the first reef, about two hundreds
yards off shore, Bergman emptied the ashes into
the sea. Then the wreath was placed on the water,
to be carried off by the outgoing tide.
The legends about Frank are endless. Skip
Johnston. a-former -tifeguard-in-- the 60's,
remembers .having to take his water test in the old
Casino Pool:,Frank was to be the victim. All new
guards hated this moment, for Frank was a
difficult- victim. His strength put all the
Newcomers to a test. Frank wanted no weaklings
on his staff--only the best could be lifeguards in

Fort Lauderdale. To get the job, you had to get
past Frank.
Johnston recalls, "Frank was trying to kill me
in the deep end of the pool. His strength was
overwhelming. The only way I made it was to
grab the pool drain on the bottom and hold on for
dear life. Finally Frank needed air more than I did
and went to the surface. At this point I finally was
able to come up in back of him and get him under
control."
Other former guards remember similar things.
His guards were the best. During his twenty-eight
years as a lifeguard, there were only three
drownings off Fort Lauderdale and all of these
occurred in unprotected areas. Each was
precipitated by another thing, such as a heart
attack.
Luck Jordan lived with Frank for awhile back in
the 50's. Jordan stated, "Frank had been an
engineer in the merchant marine. During a stop
over at Port Everglades,- he discovered Fort
Lauderdale. After the war Frank returned and
became a lifeguard. Frank had been the
equivalent of a Golden Gloves champion in
Denmark."
Lucky said that Frank still boxed a little after
the war locally. He used weights to gain strength
and it showed. Lucky remembers one particular
Frank aane.stor.y_ "1 was on the main lifeguard
stand at East Las Olas. Frank.dis covered a fight
between two women near the South Beach picnic
area. In separating the women, he took a broken
bottle in the hand. He came back to me later,
holding his hand. I told him, "Frank, you've got to
get to the hospital, that's a serious wound." He
just looked at me and said, 'I go after work', in his
normal broken English. Frank was one tough
man. In those days in Denmark, a boxing
champion was picked as the man I left standing


after the end of the day. That was Frank. A lot of
prominent people cam3 up from the City's
lifeguard stands as kids. All of them remember
Frank Dane and the part he played in their lives."
Jack Nelson, a former world record holder in
the 100-and 200-Butterfly and an Olympic coach
for the 1976 women's swim team in Montreal, also
came from the sands of old Fort Lauderdale
beach. Jack remembers Frank Dane as a man
with a heart as big as all outdoors. "He pretended
to be gruff and tough, and he certainly was, but he
had a big heart. In my case he allowed me to work
around my college schedule and kept me on the
beach as a guard. He also allowed me the time to
train for the Olympics. Frank did this for a lot of
guys." Nelson also remembers the hot shot
college kids who thought they were tough. "Frank
always put them down on the sand. Everyone had
respect for him. He was the perfect man for the
job back in the easy going days after the war."
Currently, Jack is a National coach and has been
since 1974. He also runs a swim school. "A lot of
us as young men came off the beach to be a
success, thanks in part to the help Frank gave
us." Jack mentioned that another person of note
that was one of Frank's lifeguards, and that was
Bob Bubier. Bubier came off the beach to become
the City Manager in Fort Lauderdale.
As the old former lifeguards returned from
placing the wreath and ashes in the sea, I
remembered back as a child on that lonely beach,
the image of the large powerful man with a broad
smile teaching me how to swim. The waves
warmly washed over my feet as the rescue boat
returned. It seemed fitting that Frank should
return to the very sea that he had saved so many
people from. Goodbye Frank. You're back where
you belong. Goodbye....

344 page book is authored by Buck Dawson, 1987
Fort Lauderdale Distinguished Citizen of the Year
and founding director of the International

books on subjects ranging from the American
Civil War to volcanoes and, of course, several on
swimming. His history of the 82nd Airborne
Division sold 60,000 copies.
"Weissmuller to Spitz" bristles with local and

Scientists Prepare For Artificial Reef Experiment


by Kathy MacRae
MIAMI, FLORIDA Research scientists from the
University of Miami and the National Marine
Fisheries Service (NMFS), NOAA* are beginning a
cooperative artificial reef experiment.
Deployment of 50 experimental reef habitats will
occur in early July off Key Biscayne by the
salvage tug Helen "B" from Byrd Commercial
Diving. Habitats will be composed of
prefabricated reef modules manufactured by U.S.
Precast in Miami. Each 3-ton module, termed a
"dice block," is a 4.5 foot concrete cube with 6
inch walls. Dade County Department of
Environmental Resources Management (DERM) is
providing a permitted research site and other
assistance. Scientists request the public
cooperate by not disturbing organisms on
experimental reefs during the 2-year experiment.
The research seeks to answer important
questions for managing reef fishes and deploying
artificial reefs. Dr. Patrick Walsh and Dr. Michael
McGowan from the University of Miami
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science are studying the genetic variability of the
fish which settle on natural and artificial reefs to
determine whether they come- from local or
distant sources. This research, termed "supply-
side" ecology, looks at fish populations from the
point of view of supplies and sources of fish
larvae. Dr. William Richards (NMFS) is
investigating which fish larvae in the plankton
settle on natural reefs, which settle on artificial
reefs, and why? Dr. James Bohnsack (NMFS) will
be investigating the relative importance of

Results will allow scientists to better advise
resource managers on such questions as: How
can local fish stocks be better managed? What

deployed for maximum effectiveness? How do

Environmental awareness- divers responsibility
by Bryan Brooks


Those of us who enter the other three quarters
of our planet are just now becoming aware of
what we have and how precious and vulnerable it
is. In Jacques Cousteau's first book, THE SILENT
WORLD, he was like many of us. He shot fish,
moved coral around and generally did what all of
us do as new divers, make a mess out of the
environment. He learned and begun to hunt with
the camera. Many of us have also begun to see
the camera and find that stalking a fish for film
takes much more skill than shooting a fish.
We also realize that as our sport opens up for
more and more people to become involved, we
can't let everybody learn the way we did. We had
an excuse, I think. We don't have that excuse
anymore. We have seen what damage has been
done and we have to take steps to see that newer
divers get the education we didn't when we
started.
For instance new.students have to learn when
they take instruction that coral is an animal not
necessarily a plant: The damage divers do to
coral by just swimming by is monumental, and
we don't even know that we did it. Nobody told us
and we can't see our fins because we are so busy
looking forward. My question is, how many
instructors, as a part of their course teach their
students about the damage they can do with their
fins? If you doubt that, look at Pennekamp Park
down in Key Largo, where a half million people
come each year. Dead and dying coral where
divers have been is well documented.
Anchors. This is done by many boaters who


don't have the skill or inclination to care enough
about the coral. Instead, they drop their anchor
right where their bottom recorder shows the
ledges to be.
Florida's problem is learning how to cope with
the thousands of new residents that come here
each year from their urban jungles in the north.
They have seen underwater world on television
in living color over the top of their toes and they
think they can experience it too. Good. The more
people that are aware of this water planet the
better.
The problem, at least part of it, has to lie with
the individual instructor who teaches these entry
level classes. Do the certification agencies who
train the instructor make sure he or she teaches
enough about the environment? I'm honestly not
sure mine did. Being third generation'South
Floridians helped me. But what about the average
guy that just got here from New York?
In my opinion this has to change. We only have
one planet that all of us are going to live on. We
have to be aware of our responsibilities as divers
when we enter this, the most beautiful part of our
planet, the part of the world where all life on this
planet started. When Jimmy Buffett sings
"Mother ocean, I have heard your call," he's not
just whistling "Dixie". It doesn't take a genius to
see if you kill your mommy, you kill yourself. It's
hard enough for most people to grasp that, let
alone all the new divers. Hopefully the instructor
agencies that send the half million folks a year
crawling around in the planet's womb will see this
and take appropriate action.


Hunting is another subject that we have to take
an honest look at. I, like all divers that started in
the '50's and 60's', became a hunter and killer. We
thought that's what a man does in an enemy
environment. We learned scuba with the attitude of
making a raid behind enemy lines. Most of us
learned differently, some of us never will.
When you talk to the die-hard spearfisherman,
they blame the lack of food fish around on the
fisherman. When you speak to the fisherman,
they blame it on the divers who killed the reef.
Both blame pollution. The answer is, I suspect,
somewhere in the middle of all that.
The answer that hunters all over give, and I
used to give it myself, is that by killing animals
you are a part of nature's way. Shark sh--.
Nature's way is that the weak are culled from the
herd and killed, that way only the best of a
species will mate, insuring the survival of the
animal. We don't necessarily kill the weak. With
our newer toys of war, we kill the best, and that
leaves, in some cases, the weak to spawn with
the weak. How does that insure the survival of the
species?
Hopefully the new year will find that all the
answers fall into place, of course, I still am
looking for the tooth fairy. The real hard truth is,
that all of us, divers and fisherman, have to work
together. We have to respect each other's
territory and respect our universal Mother out
there even more. Happy New Year and to steal a
phrase from Norine Rouse in the Palm Beaches,
"Take only pictures, and leave only bubbles."

Miami Rosenstiel School .of Marine and
Atmospheric Science, who announced the award.
"His work is characterized by a deep
understanding of physical processes combined
with a complete mastery of the associated
analytical techniques."
Mei is well-known for his work in a variety of
fields including wave hydrodynamics, fluid-
structure interactions, flow in porous media,
elastic waves, and seabed mechanics. He has

500 years later, Columbus' first transatlantic to be celebrated


Christopher Columbus never set foot on the
North American mainland; however four major
American seaports, including Miami-Fort
Lauderdale are vying to host a flotilla of tail ships
celebrating the 500th anniversary of the admiral's
first transatlantic crossing.
The international fleet of 20-24 tall ships will set
sail from Cadiz, Spain as did Columbus and race
to Puerto Rico in the summer of 1992. The
weekend of July 3-5 the Grand Regatta Columbus
'92, as the event is called, will gather on the U.S.
East Coast (New York City, Baltimore and Norfolk
are the other ports competing with this area to be
the host) marketing the quincentenial, according
to Frederick Guardabassi, the chairman of the
Maritime Committee of the Christopher Columbus
Quincentenary Jubilee Commission.
The Commission has been established by
Congress to "plan, encourage, coordinate and
conduct activities commemorating the historic
events associated with .Columbus' voyage.
Private and public organizations, as well as state
and local governments, are encouraged to
conduct activities to commemorate the
Quincentenary."
Mr. Guardabassi's committee will be choosing
a U.S. port-of-call Iater in the summer.
Guardabassi, a Fort Lauderdale resident, would
love to see the tall ships come to this area, but he
concedes the other cities, Baltimore and New
York in particular, have made excellent cases for
their ports.
There will be a need for "out ports" after the
Forth of July event and Fort Lauderdale could
play host to several of the tall ships sailing south
headed for South America or the Panama Canal,
for instance.

The 8-foot bronze statue of the admiral and its
travertine marble and mosiac base was designed
by noted South Florida sculptor Enzo Gallo. The
project has been funded entirely through a
