Psychic fun and run this
Halloween on New River
by M.G. Swift
Come Halloween the entrance to the Henry
Kinney Tunnel under the New River in Fort
Lauderdale may appear as the face of a Chinese
New Year's dragon. The tunnel itself will be the
belly of the beast infested with giant spiders,
bats, scorpions, roaches and the "Phantom of the
New River." Meanwhile, up the river at Bubier
Park a festival and psychic fair should be getting
underway as costumed runners jog through the
Co-sponsored by the City of Fort Lauderdale
and the National Kidney Foundation of Florida,
Masquerade Madness will begin at 5 p.m.,
Saturday, October 31st. Following a scenic route
along the city's planned Riverwalk on the New
River, the one-mile fun run will lure one
joggers into Florida's only highway tunnel.
Decorator Don Moore of Winterfest Boat Parade
and Key West Fantasy Fest fame has been
charged with the task of challenging the runner's
imagination at the tunnel site. Moore and thirty
volunteers will transform the structure in three
hours to a degree that will make last year's
Tunnel Vision seem a fairy tale. A fire breathing
dragon lying prone on the muddy river bottom
will swallow runners up only to spit the brave
ones out on the other side.
While revelers run along Riverwalk, the
Masquerade Madness festival and psychic fair
will be commencing at the park by Andrews
Avenue Bridge, across Las Olas Boulevard from
the Museum of Art. Live music, food, drinks and
booths of palm readers, fortune tellers, mind
readers, etc., will make this a most bizarre and
memorable Halloween evening, lasting till the toll
There will be an S8 run fee and $1 fair and
festival cover charge.' Runners will receive a
Masquerade Madness T-shirt and will be
admitted to the park's activities free. All proceeds
benefit the National Kidney Foundation's Children
Summer Dialysis program, said Pam Shives,
executive director of the Foundation's
Southeastern Florida Chapter. Corporate
sponsored running teams are welcome at special
Costumes are optional for runners; however,
prizes will be awarded to best disguised
individuals and teams as well as first, second and
third placed timed-finishers in various age
groups, male and female. Sponsored teams will
be offered reserved tables under the main tent at
Bubier Park after the run. according to event
chairperson, Vicki Manley.
Runners will not be the only ones joining the
crowd at the psychic fair and festival on the dark
banks of the river. The Phantom and his ghoulish
cohearts will leave: their haunts in the tunnel --
DOT is evicting them to reopen Federal Highway
-- for a graveyard at Bubier Park.

Masquerade Madness, contact John Ziegler at
524-9450 or Ms. Manley at 761-5376. The National
Kidney Foundation's area office is located at 3661

Your article on divers versus offshore power
boats (see "The divers only predator: Boats", by
Bryan Brooks, September 1987, Waterfront News)
listed me as a diving victim. I am a diver, having
made over 2400 logged dives on the west coast
and British Columbia, Canada, all without
incident. I moved to Florida for the diving.
But, I was run over and left to bleed to death
while swimming (not diving) in the surf 25 yards
off the beach in front of Penrod's bar. Although I
did have a mask, I was swimming on my back and
only heard the boat going away after the incident.
I have yet to make my first scuba dive in
Florida. What happened to me could have
happened to any tourist or resident of Fort
Ironically, the boat that ran over me was the
same boat we all see at the beginning of "Miami
Vice" every Friday night on television. The owner
of the boat, Miami Vice, has to my knowledge,
never inquired as to my condition. Although he
is under a bench warrant by the State's Attorney,
he still owns the boat and has the freedom to use
it anyway he wants.
I shall never again be able to build Valient 40's,
Umfletes or Chris-Craft yachts. I may never be
able to ride a bicycle or run, but I will someday
make that first dive in Florida!
Norman Edward Stark
To the Editor:
Sometimes enough is enough about licensing
to operate a boat for recreation (see "Opinion:
Licensing Boat Operators" by H.W. Lange, page
16, May 1987, Waterfront News). I would suggest
that every person who owns a boat or allows a
friend or chile to operate his craft; that they all
take a Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power Squadron
course in safe boating and "rules of the road".
These classes are all given free of charge )aside
for the cost of the textbook) and an exam is taken
The registry of motor boats should have a
space on the annual state boating tag application
that says you have passed the tests given by the
Auxiliary or Squad. The owner of the boat used
for recreation should be responsible for who
operates the boat, whether the operator has been
drinking or an improper person has caused an
accident. The state should revoke the owner's
boat registration or take it away. It's then more
costly to get new marine insurance.
I think this would do more than having an
operator's license that could be revoked or
suspended. Owners of larger yachts may have
professional captains; but registration
suspension would apply to the owners as it
Let's think of those who can't afford extra
costs. The cost of dockage, fuel, insurance,
repairs and equipment.-.Where does this stop?

Waterfront property owners are being hosed!
The Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice Dock Owners
Association has a dispute with the City of Fort
Lauderdale and the Broward County Board of
Rules and Appeals. This dispute has escalated to
include nearly all waterfront property owners in
A subcommittee of the Board of Rules and
Appeals proposed to the board a definition of
"Private Boat Docking Facilities" that would have
included most of Broward County's waterfront
properties in its requirement to install fire lines
and fire hoses. The Board rejected that definition
at its meeting of September 10, 1987 after hearing
objections from the Hendricks Isle and Isle of
Venice Dock Owners Association and the Fort
Lauderdale Waterfront Property Owners
Association. The Board handed the definition
back to its Fire Code Subcommittee for revision.
This question will probably get back to the Board
within the next two months and will probably still
The Board of rules and appeals has created an
unreadable code for boat docks. The code
presently calls for private boat docking facilities
to have fire lines and hoses but does not define
"private boat docking facilities." The proposed
definition would have included hotels, motels
restaurants, etc. as well as private homes,
apartments, and condominiums as private boat
docking facilities. At the same time, the code
definition of covered properties which includes
all but private residences. Therefore, the Board of
Rules and Appeals has created several
ambiguities in the South Florida Building Code.
At issue is whether or not fire lines should be
installed and on what property.
The South Florida Building Code requires fire
lines and hoses in spite of the fact that the
National Fire Protection Association has
determined that fire hoses are unsafe in the hands
of the public.
Many waterfront property owners and the
National Fire Protection Association believe fire
hose to be unsafe in the marine environment. The
reasons are: a high pressure stream of water can
injure one, high nozzle reaction is difficultto hold
and the nozzle could injure somebody if it got
loose, and water should not be used on a fuel or
Actually, the fire hoses are unreliable as well
as unsafe. At a recent demonstration of a fire
hose at the City's Las Olas docks, attended by
several city officials and some private citizens,
the hose got hung up in the rack and the valve
was frozen shut so badly that it required a tire
iron to open it. The nozzle reaction was
noticeable even though there was only 40 psi
pressure in the system as opposed to the normal
The end result is that waterfront property
owners wilt probably have to spend thousands of
dollars each to install dangerous and useless fire
lines which are not required for marinas or boat

in the State with this parochial, antiquated
attitude. Calvin Landau & Frank Sobchak

The Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Property
Owners Association (FLWPOA), after more than
two years of continuous activity, called for a
marine-oriented development on the subject 20
acre Riverwalk site. Per FLWPOA'S Riverwalk
Committee, Board of Directors and Unamimous
vote By Our Membership, "Construction of a
parking garage of any size on this valuable,
highly visible Riverwalk Waterfront/Park site is,
in our opinion, at best short sighted and at worst
an abuse of public responsibility on the part of
our currently elected county commissioners and
associated senior departmental staff.
Furthermore, we are appalled by the latest
news that, while the City and County are planning
an "update" for this site's proposed development
alternatives by Sasaki Associates and their
financial experts Hammer-Siler-George
Associates (a project not even begun yet), that
the County has already commissioned internally
a design expansion of the parking garage to be
over twice the size of the original Sasaki
"alternate" recommended garage size (increasing
from 980 to 2300 vehicles.) This increased
building size, if allowed, would leave only about
145 feet between the parking garage and the
waterfront/waterway. This size space leaves no
appreciable space for any meaningful
development. With NO meaningful development
space left for major private developers ONLY
localized/scaled down investment will be used
on what property is left to be developed. If our
County forfeits or renegs its agreement to share
sale proceeds with the city or fails to materialize
a reasonable investment return from this
property of at least $6,000,000 then the city will
have little or NO money for other dedicated
Riverwalk development or meet PECO Grant
matching fund requirements for other parking
requirements, etc.. (Note 1: This specifically
means that the parking garage next to the
Performing Arts Center would not be funded!(No
one, we believe, would want this to occur at this
late date.) Note 2: municipal parking garages
should be built close by, but elsewhere, as far
away from the limited Riverwalk "waterfront" as

Ask Big Al
I have just bought a used boat from a (friend,
dealer, marina) that is turning out to be a horror.
The transmission is bad, the motor needs
rebuilding and the transom is rotted. We invested
money in repairs, etc., cosmetics, equipment.
Went to mechanics, we were told the worst
needed this, that, and engine, etc. (This is a
summary of letters I receive daily.) What can I do?
Sue? Go to court? Try to get a refund? Al, have
you any answers?
Jim, Fred, Carol, Charles and on and on
Dear boat owners:
When I get these letters asking me, "what can
we do ... what recourse have I,"all I can answer is
buying a boat is as dangerous as buying a used
car from a car lot. You would take a mechanic
along to check your purchase there. A boat over
ten years old has many things worn and would
need repairs. Some newer boats have been
abused and neglected and just looking good and
being painted covers a multitude of problems. A
good surveyor or engine man is worth all you
pay him to check your boat you intended to buy.
As far as recourse, if the boat can be repaired, do
it and take your loss. See if you can get come help
from the seller. If you can prove you were
swindled, you can try to take him to court. There
is an old saying, "Let the buyer beware."
My boat-is eight years old and in the last seven
months I was not getting water. After pulling the
water pump I found the key in the pump shaft
eaten away. I replaced the key. Last week I
decided to replace the pump impeller and the new
key both ends eaten away. How can I prevent this
from happening again?
Usually keys wear from not fitting spug in the
shaft slot. If it is being eaten away, it is caused by
corrosion or rusting out. Is the pump satafworn
or corroded. I would try a stainless steel or brass
key and check to see what is happening in about a
month. I would also check my shaft key and hub
for any wear from corrosion or electrolysis.
How would I know if I have bad valves or bad
compression? My plugs are fouling up and my
engine smokes too much.
A compression test is the best way to check for
bad valves or bad rings. Smoking is an indication
of oil burning. Passing the rings and valves
causes excessive smoking and plug fouling. A
tester is needed and will indicate the bad

the new rules could go into effect before the end of

of- alternatives with the Southeast 17th Street
es Causeway Feasibility Study mandated by
ng Congress. From "cheapest" to most expensive,
gy those preliminary choices are: (1) widen the
am existing drawbridge to six lanes; (2), build a
second 21-foot clearance draw span parallel to
the present bridge; (3), build 40-foot clearance,
six-lane drawbridge and demolish the existing
S. span over the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort

ig present bridge, according to Jim Hess, a principal
of with the consulting engineering firm Parsons
of Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, Inc. He figures, a

nt it would take to build a new drawbridge or high
of fixed bridge and be more costly to maintain. The

Boca's beach renourishment debated,
by Bryan Brooks
Emotions ran high in Boca Raton City Hall in
early September as environmentalists and Boca
Raton residents squared off against each other in
front of the Army Corps of Engineers.
Approval of Boca Raton's permit for
renourishment of their beach has dragged on for
the past two years. The public meeting with the
Army Corps of Engineers was the last step. The'
section in question is just north of an area on the
beach known as Red Reef Park. This area is
famous for its snorkeling on a rock outcropping
which contains many varieties of fish. The
beachfront to be renourished covers 1.45 miles.
Elected representatives from Boca Raton and
Delray Beach spoke of the studies made during
the past few years showing.the urgent need for
beach renourishment. Spokesmen such as
Charles L. Marshall, representing various Boca
Raton homeowners,, spoke of their resentment of
outside environmentalists coming in to tell them
what they could do with their beach. Marshall
stated, "Those people seemed more interested in
'Lower Forms of Life' than the humans who might
be trapped on the beach during hurricanes."
Marshall also mentioned that if the erosion
continues, it would wash away the beach road, A-
1-A. Another road, 40th Street, was also listed as
a part of the Boca citizens' concern.
Richard Spadoni, a consulting engineer for
Boca Raton, admitted that there would be some
short term turbidity of silt on the reefs, but in the
long run there wouldn't be any lasting problems.
Spadoni stated, "The sand brought in from the
outer shore won't be a problem to Red Reef Park.
We are only renourishing the Spanish River area
which is the north of Red Reef Park."
Leah Schad, Chairman of the Board of the
Florida Audubon Society, decried the-
--'.- ... ,.. -
renourishment project. The silt and changes
would bring about a wasteland instead of the
rock outcropping which now contains over forty
species of fish. She also mentioned that there is a
state law on the books which forbids the very
action the city of Boca Raton is thinking about
taking--that is, the endangering of any
environment or any species contained in the area
to be renourished.
Dr. Orrin Pilkey from Duke University stated,
"My studies have shown, in fact, the city of Boca
Raton doesn't have an erosion problem The loss
of beachfront during the winter and the natural
renourishment of itself during the summer
months is nature's way of handling its own
Harold Wanless, from the University of Miami
Rosenstiel Center, stated that the sand used to
renourish the beach would be too fine and
wouldn't stabilize the beach. It would also cause
extreme damage to any life lying shoreward of
the beach. The increase in turbidity caused by the
silt would cover the very rock outcropping that
attracts thousands of snorkelers each year to the
city's beach. Burying the rock outcropping would
kill the fish that live there, too, Wanless
Alexander Stone, from the American Littoral
Society, mentioned that not only would the
renourishment kill the forty species near the
shore but would also affect fish and coral life on
the outer reefs. Stone mentioned that both the
National Marine Fisheries Commission and the
United States Fish and Wildlife Service had found
the renourishment would be unsafe for the
environment mentioned in the permit proposal.
Jim Barry, from the Palm Beach County Health
Department, stated, "There has been no
investigation of what would happen to the
bottom,.or borrow area, where the sand to
renourish the beach would come from."'
Fred Cichocki, from the University of Boca
Raton, said that his studies indicated that if the
proposed renourishment takes place, the
equivalent of 23 football fields would be covered
up by over an inch of silt. Cichocki also
mentioned that a fish known as the LITTLE SCALE
THREAD FIN would be destroyed. This
outcropping off Boca Raton is the northern most
range of the fish.
One of the arguments used by city engineer
Spadoni was that Red Reef Park, the area the
environmentalists are worried about, will be
protected by a groin to be placed during the
renourishment. This, Spadoni claims, would stop
any slit from settling on the reef.
Skip Commagere, owner of seven dive stores in
the Broward/Palm Beach area and a former
lifeguard on the very beach in question, claimed
that the beach was fine the way it was. He said,
"Since the city of Boca Raton is one of the
wealthier communities in the country, they aren't
happy with a smaller beach than their neighbor to
the north, Delray Beach." Commagere said,
somewhat tongue in cheek, "I have always found
a little snobbishness in this city, and the beach
renourishment is merely a way for the citizens of
Boca Raton to sooth their own egos."
The meeting was chaired by Lt. Colonel Robert
Ottesen from the Army Corps of Engineers. It is
unknown at this time when a final decision
concerning the city's permit will be made.

University of Miami Snook Graduate to Florida Waters
by Rosemary Sullivant
Coral Gables --- Juvenile snook spawned at the
Experimental Fish Hatchery at the University of
Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science are being released on both
the east and west coasts of Florida this summer.
"We've had three successful spawns this year,"
says Professor Elizabeth Clarke, scientific
director of the hatchery, "and we're planning for
two more before the season ends in September.
We're spawning nearly twice as many snook as

Juvenile fish, about one to two inches long,
from the first spawn were released on the west
coast of Florida on July 22. The second spawn,
from east coast fish, was released in August. The
Experimental Fish Hatchery is the only hatchery

The juvenile fish are released in the same area

explains Clarke. "We also try to find areas where

We look for the best food distribution in the
When snook spawning season is over, the
hatchery will begin spawning redfish. Redfish
spawn between October and December.
In addition to spawning and rearing snook and
redfish, :hatchery scientists are conducting
studies of snook growth and nutrition. They are
also working on a study of snook and redfish
predation to determine the best size at which to
release hatchery grown fish to avoid having them
eaten by predators.

Columbus Day Regatta founder to present trophies
When Timothy J. Sullivan founded his sailing
event in Biscayne Bay, he started a fleet of only 24
-boats that day in October, 1954. Thirty-three
years and races later, the 34th Annual Columbus
Day Cruising Regatta is "one of the most
important dates on Southeast Florida sailors'
calendars," reads the regatta program. Seven-
hundred and fifty competing skippers and several
thousand crew members will no doubt agree.
The winning skippers and crews will get a
chance to meet regatta founder and first
chairman, Mr. Sullivan, as he will be a special
guest at the trophy presentations the following
Saturday after the race at Coral Reef Yacht Club.
The two-day race will begin at 0900 hours,
Saturday, October 10th in the vicinity of Dinner
Key Channel, finishing the first.day near East
Featherbed Bank. The regatfa is actually two one-
day races, thus on Sunday the fleet will start at
East Featherbed Bank and finish back at Dinner
Key. The start and finish lines will be designated
by an orange flag on the race committee boat and
an orange inflatable mark.
New to this year's Columbus Day Regatta are
three changes to the registration and
handicapping processes, intended to make the
racing more fair and thus more fun.
"Dowagers" will be handicapped for the first
time, using the same procedures that apply for
"Assigned Rating" and "Gunkhole" classes.
"Handicapping evens the odds," say the race
A third division is being added to the rapidly
growing "Gunkhole" class.
And for the first time, skippers of all boats -
including ARC, Dowager, Multihull and Gunkhole -
must supply a photograph of the yacht and the
manufacturer's-specifications in the registration.
Without them, the registration will be refused and

Third Avenue Bridge
Fort Lauderdale Not long ago the Third Avenue
Bridge showed 27 years of wear and tear. But now
with a spanking new exterior, the bridge over
New River is considered a prelude to Riverwalk,
the hope of a revitalized downtown.
Although the city wanted a facelift, it also
aimed to save 76 years of hard-earned history.
Take the two 6-foot mosaics standing on each
side of the bridge's pilings. By depicting turn-of-
the-century life on the New River, the mosaics are
a reminder that Fort Lauderdale didn't begin with
the advent of Spring Break.
Local artist, Liz Buxton, sketched the scenes
from photographs provided by the Fort
Lauderdale Historical Society. Artists then
duplicated the scenes by painting them on to tiles.
Two murals, one called "Hunting on Lake Mabel"
faces west, while the other, "Trading on the New
River," faces east.
Five addition tiles which trim the bridgetender
house are painted with scenes of the original
county courthouse, the Casino Pool, the
Southside fire station, the Stranahan House and
the Annie Beck House.
The bridgetender's house was also revamped
with a shiny coat of dark red paint, a
Mediterranean barrel-tile roof and a new window.
Community efforts paid a large chunk of the
tab: lumber, paint, labor and technical advice
was all donated. Add to that $20,000 collected last
Spring from the New River Street Dance.
It was 1960 when the$1 million bridge was built
and dedicated. If at that time the past was still too
new to be considered history, then the current
renovations make the point, "now we have
something to preserve,' said one Broward County
resident.:,,: ;- v:;r;.
-Columbus comes home to Port Everglades-,
,by Maggie Gibbs
Ft. Lauderdale, FL --- Christopher Columbus, or
at least a bronze likeness of the intrepid Italian
explorer, sailed into Port Everglades August 29th
aboard a cruise ship, the ssCostaRiviera.
Upon its arrival, the statue accompanied
traditional fireboat escort, was greeted in warm
Ft. Lauderdale fashion with a ceremony attended
by local dignitaries and guests.
Columbus' month-long journey began in Genoa,
Italy, on July 31 aboard the tsEugenioCosta, a
Mediterranean-based liner. Welcome ceremonies
were held in Barcelona, The Azores, Montreal,
Quebec, New York, and St. Thomas. The statue
boarded the CostaRiviera in St. Thomas on
Tuesday, and received royal welcomes in St.
Croix and Nassau before its arrival in Port
The statue, created by Hollywood's own Enzo
Gallo, was commissioned by the Christopher
Columbus Monument Committee of Florida, a
non-profit organization established to raise the
monies needed from private donations, and is co-
sponsored by Costa Cruises. The dream that
began nearly 2 years ago for Tom Sette, Tony
Papparella, and Tony lanelli has come true with
the statue's arrival here.
The 8-foot-tall, 2-ton statue's voyage is the first
"Registered Project" of the Christopher Columbus
Quincentenary Jubilee Commission, established

S.S. Hercules steams away
by M.G. Swift
Walter B. Loewenherz and his wife, Beatrice;
were cruising the Caribbean in the early 1970's
aboard their 50-foot ketch and later on a Chris-
Craft. Walter read an article about steam boats
while in the islands.
Mr. Loewenherz was so taken by steam that he
commissioned Don Beckner of Leominster, Mass.
to build him steamboat in 1979. It took Beckner
two years to construct it in the basement of his
house in pieces the hull sections, the boiler, the
pipefittings. A steam whistle made in 1908 for the
S.S. Sabino was salvaged for Loewenherz's boat,
Beatrice pointed out.
Finally in 1981, Mr. & Mrs. Lowenherz brought
the finished steamboat down to their waterfront
home on Aqua Vista Blvd. i6' Fort Lauderdale.
They named the African Queen look-a-like, the
"I was the stoker," recalled neighbor and
frequent crew member, George Thorn. "Walter
used to cruise the isles" north of Las Olas on the
18-foot, narrow-beamed steamboat. A bag of
charcoal and five to ten gallonsof water were
enough to fuel a long evening's cruise up and
down nearby canals. -

Neighbors like, Mr. Thorn, enjoyed hearing the
toot of Hercules'horn which was more an effort to
release excess steam pressure by Walter
Lowenherz than any greeting to his friends. It
added ambience to the isle, Thorn's wife recalls.
But, sadly Mr. Lowenenherz grew ill and he
couldn't take Hercules out on the water. Walter B.
Loewenherz died a few years ago. His wife hadn't
been able to do anything with the steamboat
except keep it out of the water hanging from two
davits on her back seawall.
Fortunately, her daughter, Betsy, and Betsy's
husband, Jim Gay trailered the S.S. Hercules up to
Marblehead, Mass., recently, where the couple
plans to restore the little steamboat. The toe rail
needs replacing, and the Gays said they plan to
repair the rusting boiler. They hope to use
Hercules as a summer boat, tooling around the
Salem-Marblehead waterfront like Betsy's father
used to in'Fort Lauderdale.

Key West Slates "Daring and Outrageous" Fantasy Fest '87
Key West, Florida Keys--Key West's annual
Halloween celebration known as Fantasy Fest
will expand to a full week this year with an
outrageous schedule of events slated October 26
through November 1.
"This will be the most daring and bizarre
festival in years," said Michael Whalton, festival
director. "We have more parties, costume balls
and, with the Grand Parade on Halloween, more'
craziness than ever before."
Begun in 1979 as a local Halloween celebration,
Fantasy Fest attained national notoriety with its
elaborate high jinks and visitors started showing
up to join the fun. This year's Fantasy Fest theme,
according to Whalton, will be "Halloween with a
Key West Flair."
"We are looking for the perfect marriage of
conventional Halloween creatures and the flora,

can expect costumes ranging from a

a flock of giant man-eating flamingos."
Originally patterned after the costume parades
of Mardi Gras and Carnivale celebrations,
Fantasy Fest has developed its own identity for
clever, tongue-in-cheek outrageousness done to
an elaborate turn and wild partying that
continues around the clock.
Interspersed with the parties are major festival
events including a two-day Halloween Street Fair
featuring the Southernmost City's best selection
of exotic foods, objets d'art and impromptu
performances by the fire eaters, jugglers, mimes
and musicians who populate the area. The

Covering the waterfront
by Bobbi Belanger
FRANKIE'S, one of Fort Lauderdale's posh
waterfront landmarks has established its
reputation on fine dining, fine wine, a fine location
and the finest clientele. Set in the heart of the Gait.
Frankie's is located eastside on a beautiful
section of the Intracoastal Waterway just north of
Oakland Park Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale
Frankie's has been the nightspot for South
Florida's well-to-do's for over 18 years. The
clientele could be categorized as the Baby
Boomers' parents, the original yuppies.
The attraction? Good food, good music and an
ambiance conducive to a good time. The dining
room overlooks the Intracoastal for a spectacular
view, live and artificial plants are mixed with
white Christmas lights all along the overhead
planters set up like beams across the high ceiling.
Mauve linen cloths drape the tables and warm
wicker chairs are no less than inviting. But when
the music starts, it's hard to stay put in those
comfortable chairs. Dancing is very big at
Frankie's. Why? Because of ENRIQUE & FRIENDS!
ENRIGUE DE BONI, piano and assorted keyboards;
RINGO THIELMAN, bass and CHIP HUTCHINS, drums,
provide the vital ingredient that makes up the
ambiance of Frankie's. Enrique & Friends are as
much a part of Frankie's as Frankie's is of Fort
Lauderdale: Enrique & Friends have been
together close to 20 years, and Chip, the youngest
member to join the trio, has filled in on drums for
about 7 years. Playing standards and favorites,
this is one of the tighest trios around. If you are
looking for prime music, this is'the place.
Something new has been added at this old,
establishment an after dinner moonlight cruise.
What could be more romantic? Monday blues can
be chased away with an early dinner and a slow
cruise down the Waterway. Special menu
selections are around $15, or choose delicacies
from the regular menu. If you, complete your
dinner by 7:45 p.m. the Florida Princess will pick
you up dockside for a two-hour ride. There are

Diving to Forty Fathom Grotto
-by Stevan Hoffman
It is Saturday, September 5th as my blue
Camaro approaches the Ocala Forest in search of
240 feet of water. The exact destination is the
Forty Fathom Grotto, a privately owned 240-foot
deep sink hole on eight acres of land. The intent is
to attempt a 200(foot to240-foot scuba dive under
the direct guidance of world famous diver Hal
Watts. Hal Watts, 52, more justifiably referred to
as Mr. Scuba set a deep diving world record of
390 feet in 1968. This was the deepest dive any
man on earth ever made using compressed air
and safely returned. Thatalong with the fact that
Hal has logged over 700 dives irrthis sink hole,
instill a feeling of confidence that is necessary for
this type of diving.
Seventy feet down in a hole lies an oblong pool
of fresh water which is 150 feet wide and 225 feet,
long. Fortunately it is accessible by a flight of.
wooden steps that lead to a 12-foot by 15-foot
floating dock that provides for easy water
entries. Below the surface of the water, the sink
measures 200' by 400' on the bottom: Because of
this, much of the diving is done along and under a
great limestone wall.
Our first dive is night dive to 100feet. We meet
on a 12-foot by 10-foot platform that Hal has
suspended at 30 feet. At the platform we adjust
our equipment, check our gauges and give the
final okay. The next stop is 100 feet down on an
old automobile. It is believed that most of the
many cars in the sinkhole were stolen and
abandoned there. At 100 feet we play on the car
and enjoy viewing 30 million year old sea biscuit
fossils and sand dollars.
Building our depth up in sequence, we decide to
make our next dive to a tree at 130 feet to get the
feel of the increasing surroundingness of

nitrogen narcosis, 'is likely to be the feeling

Our next destination in the 100-year-old sink
lies in 150 feet of water: a 1973 van. Theplan is for
me to read the odometer and attempt to
remember it in order to test for nitrogen narcosis.
At his point I am still not feeling it. The dive is
running like clockwork; in fact, we decide to
descend even deeper to 180 feet. The first
sensation of narcosis undoubtedly occurred at
this depth, something that I will later be more
aware of as we make successive dives. We are
now very definitely in the zone of dark inner
space and nitrogen narcosis. I can feel the
presence of the nothingness. The dive is going
well when we shake hands and decide to ascend
for decompression. Upon surfacing I tell Hal the

a strong case of it at that. Attempting to fight off
the narcosis I crawl halfway into what is left of
the car and read the odometer. The problem with
nitrogen narcosis is not the intoxicating effect but
rather what problems may occur when under its
influence. With this in mind I am becoming
concerned as my mask suddenly floods.
Giving the up signal we start our ascent. A
direct ascent is not possible as we are under a
wall. Looking up to avoid hitting the wall causes
water to enter my nose and down my throat
during inhalation. While trying not to.choke on
water, my biggest concern is to avoid bouncing
on and off the great limestone wall. The narcosis
intensifies concern; however having been trained

Decompression went well and I surfaced only
to have no recollection of the odometer reading.
The only memory of it was that there were only
three readable digits. Before leaving the grotto a
few days later, more dives were made to the 180-
foot 202 foot range. The level of intoxication at
200 foot along with the errie "nothingness" acted
as a warning to limit my depth to 200 feet. It's
possible to build a tolerance to the narcosis, but
my time had run out. It was time to return home to
an anxiously waiting wife.
Diving to these depths is extremely dangerous
and should not be taken lightly. Serious
experience and knowledge coupled with
competent dive partners, safety divers, surface
support teams, equipment, physiological and
health insurance considerations are all
mandatory areas that must be carefully looked at
before even considering this extremely
hazardous form of diving. The single most
important ingredient is that you are with a
competent deep diving instructor. Because 99% of
the diving population can not honestly meet these
rigorous standards or find qualified instructors,
dives of this caliber are absolutely not
recommended. It is also very important that
divers realize that recompression treatment can
easily cost up to $30,000. Without cash or

and divers should beware that at depths of 130 to

The South Florida Fishing Classic has voted to
donate $10,000 for an enhanced billfish research
program to the International Commission billfish
research program to the International

The money for this project comes from the Fort

allocation of conservation funds raised during
the 1987 Fishing Classic. The Billfish Tournament
organizes the Port Everglades portion of the four

The Billfish Tournament Committee chose to
support ICCAT's enhanced billfish research
program because of the shortage of information
on billfish stocks.
The priorities have been identified for the
program by ICCAT scientists: improved data
collection, an expanded tagging program, and
age and growth studies. Information gathered
from this program will aid effective fishery
management and provide-valuable data on the
migratory patterns of billfish.
This project is the direct result of United States
efforts to bring billfish issuesto the international
community and to utilize the resources of ICCAT
nations in gathering biological data and
information on billfish catches in the Atlantic.

Tournament Helping Battle Against Neurofibromatosis
by David Rafter
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. -- The Kiwanis Club of
North Broward did a lot of research before
selecting a charity for its first Sailboat Fishing
Tournament three years ago.
Patrick O'Donnell a veteran Kiwanian and the
tournament's organizer, chose the Florida
Neurofibromatosis Foundation (NF) after he
learned how common the affliction was -- and
how little public attention it received.
The first Sailboat Fishing Tournament in 1984
was a success and the event has grown each year
making the fourth annual tournament on
November 21 the biggest and best yet. The bond
between the North Broward Kiwanis Club and NF
has grown as well.
"Many people may have heard Neurofibroma-
tosis referred to as Elephantman's Disease,"
O'Donnell said. "But they probably don't realize
Neurofbromatosis is more common in our society
than Muscular Dystrophy -- occurring once in
every 3,000 births."
Dr. Sandra C. Grady, regional director for the
Florida Neurofibromatosis Foundation, said the
disease can strike anyone and the resulting
tumor growth can lead to blindness, paralysis,
cancer and other severe disabilities.
She is thankful to O'Donnell and his fellow
Kiwanians for raising much needed funds and --
just as importantly -- increasing the level of
"The Kiwanis Club of North Broward was the
first civic organization to recognize the
importance of working towards a cure for
Neurofibromatosis," Dr. Grady said. "Their efforts
have increased hope and helped to shine a light
on the disorder."
Because of the attention brought by the
Kiwanis Club of North Broward, the Florida
Netroftfbo-rfidosis Foundallon has been able to.

identify more individuals stricken with the
disease who have contributed vast amounts of
new information to aid in researching
Nerofibromatosis and move closer towards --
developing a cure.
Dr. Grady said the local Kiwanians have helped
to make Broward County "the best in the state" in
raising funds and awareness for her foundation.
The county now has a foundation hotline at 492-
"The entire approach of the Kiwanis Club of
North Broward has been positive," she said. "The

Common sense seems scarce on our waterfront
by H.- W. Lange --
Whether you are a skipper or a marina operator
on our waterfront quite a few of you lack the most
vital component of boating. That is common
sense. Lives or money are frequently lost and
daily endangered by what one could discuss from
Wondering why you do or fail to do something
which is bad for others, and can bring trouble on
yourself, an observer may cite any one of those
viewpoints as the reason for what is probably the
cause. For this article I lump them all together.
For with common sense any dumb-john or dumb-
jane can minimize the unhappy results.
And I charge you the reader, and even myself,
with one failure for sure. We have not had the
guts, or the sincerity of responsibility, to corral
the dumbos. Even when the laws finally come to
southern Florida, and they are coming, the law
enforcers cannot get every negligent boater. All
of us will still have to point at the mistakes we see
To eat a little humble pie. Even as recently as
to-day I had to discard some valuable canned
food. Education tells one the danger of botulism
but common sense, or a friendly trainer, should
have made it evident that many months storage
in a closet in a hot tropical area will result in
container deterioration. Sure the skipper is
responsible but a boat examiner, or another
friendly boater, or a marina operator, or a
dockmaster could help the unwary or
When a person arrives to rent or buy a boat
from you it is common sense for yourself and also
for the boater that you closely observe and
support that person's abilities. I know one marina
and one charterer which do a thorough job. Most
just get the plastic card on the bill and hand over
the keys. The skipper is liable but so is the boat
At the fuel point it is common sense that one
must not rely on the blower, but must use one's
nose in inspecting for dangers. The result of a few
seconds of improper fueling, failure by the
skipper and the fuel-provider, will be extremely
As the sailor charters to go offshore does that
happy-go-lucky one know how to handle a
capsize? Common sense tells you that there will
-;be such times. But often it is evident that no one
said to let fly the sheets. Or to wear the PFDs.
As the boat, even a small one and even going
rather slowly, traverses the ICW one can see
persons in boats along the shorewall hanging on
due to the rocking. A common sense action would
be to slow down. It is easy to do and would be
logically applicable even before arguing that the
boater does not know about courtesy, or
consideration for life and limb, or legal
responsibility and the costs resultant.
Sometimes it is a young family, or even a real
sporty person on a hardly-a-boat contraption,
having an almost laughingly good time. But
unfortunately nobody had impressed them that
the operator has become a "skipper" with
-Thenithere are the boaters, don't you agree that
it is almost half of them, who are proud of their
new-looking nicely cellophane-wrapped PFDs?
Have you pointed out the common sense that one
never knows how to unwrap, untangle and don
such PFDs? An emergency is not the time to learn
And how about "the on-plane charger"? Some
are macho owned. But many are borrowed or
credit-carded for a short period. Where is-the
common sense for them or for you when they
spray the highest flume possible as soon as they
claim to be beyond a. designated zone?
Regardless of the other boats nearby. Or running
parallel to the beach and insisting they were "far
enough out", or that the person had no flag.
And how much common sense is there for the
sail or power skipper arguing that he or she was
"the legal distance" away from a dive area? Or,
vice versa, for divers showing an eight inch
square almost-rag to claim that they were
"adequately marked". Whether sub-surface or a
carrier the general rule applies. To exercise full
caution and common sense in regard to safety.
Editor's Note: Yacht broker Bob Fisher and I are
assembling a panel of concerned boaters and
waterfront residents to discuss-topics-such as.
those outlined above by Bill Lange and in the.
letters from readers. We urge you to respond to
Lange's article and provide input to Fisher's
