100 anglers will take advantage of a great day of
fishing and put their lines in the water for a
chance to win cash and prizes," said Patrick
O'Donnell, organizer of the sailboat fishing
This year's tournament will be special in that it
will expand the guidelines so that other types of
craft may enter. "We plan to include windsurfers
and Hobie-Cat type catamarans," said John
Ziegler, tournament Chairman.'"They will join a
fleet of larger mono and multi-hull sailboats for
what promises to be a very exciting and fun-filled
day of fishing."

p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with an awards ceremony
scheduled for 5:30 p.m. to Bahia Mar.

the "Elephant Man's" disease and is more
common in our society than muscular dystrophy,
occurring once in every 3,000 births. Tumor
growth can lead to blindness, scoliosis, cancer
and other severe problems.

RE: the possibility of developing a
standardized contest for young children entering
We certainly all know the success of the
Optimist Pram sailing programs all around the
world and I think we probably all recognize that
learning to race in these and similar classes is an
ideal training in both technique and discipline for
youngsters. Regretfully, there are a lot of
youngsters who are growing up in power boats
and don't like sail, and it has long since been a
source of concern to me that there isn't a similar
kind of training activity which could provide the
basis for competitiveness in kids learning to use
The secret of being competitive, of courses, so
that there can be awards and classes and
activities sufficiently interesting to make the kids
want to do this, is to have repeatability. That is,
whatever we design as an exercise or a training
course must be able to be set up anywhere there
is a body of water and produce the same results.
Also, it can't be "race" as such because we would
lack the uniformity of having class boats, such as
the Optimist Prams, and we have to consider the
Perhaps one of the places to look is in the area
of Gymkanas as done for automobiles and, in
fact, as also done for such diverse groups as
drivers of 18 wheel trucks and school buses. In a
Gymkana a standardized course is laid 'out
incorporating all of the maneuvers that one
should know how to do and the individual vehicle
is driven through the course, with points added
and substracted for finishing the routine properly
without hitting anything.
Since 18 wheel trucks and most automobiles
are about the same size, it is possible to set up a
standardized Gymkana on any large parking lot
and let the individuals. run.against the clock as
:they maneuver, reverse, park, etc. without hitting
,the traffic cones which outline the course.
Since most kids start out in small power boats
;which are probably all under 15', perhaps we
could design a course which would emphasize
precision driving and not speed, such course
having a standard layout with small marker
Visualize the following possible.routine:
The young contestant is standing in front of the
judges on a dock to which is tied his boat. Upon
the go signal he enters the boat, unties it, placing
his lines properly aboard, starts his engine,
leaves the dock, and performs certain maneuvers
around our standardized course.
The maneuvers include ,guiding the boat
through a slalom course, reversing through
another configuration of buoys, rescuing a
"drowning person" (picking a flag out of buoy)
without hitting it, etc., and finally returning to the
dock making a proper landing, securing the boat
properly with the right use of lines, and jumping
out to stand' at the place of beginning. All this
would be done against the time clock and I
imagine the total time of each contest to be not
more than several minutes.
I remember asportscar gymkana I was in many
years ago whose procedures were cleverly
enough devised so that the first and second
winners were a small speedy sportscar and a

course for such a contest can be designed to not
give an advantage to the fastest vehicle.
Every finisher who completes the course
without too many point deductions for hitting
buoys, etc. and within a prescribed time should
get a boat handling certificate, a "license" he can
proudly own. The winners, of course, should get
prizes like any other contest.
There are probably a number of other.ways to
create this desired competitive event, and

great if parents who.bought kids boats insisted
that the kids qualify for a certificate before
turning them loose? Wouldn't it be great if every
dealership who sold boats to such parents could
strongly suggest the use of such a program?
We all know the hassle that will occur if big
brother on a State or Federal level tries to license
boat drivers, especially young ones. If those of us
interested in boating come up with something
which is not only a training program but at the
same time fun and competitive for the kids, won't
we all profit?

You have likely had the experience of finding a

tell you about someone who rescued not a cat or
dog, but an entire ship, complete with crew and
8,000 tons of cargo.
On April 3, a 416-foot ship named the Porto
Coroni got stranded off the coast of Cuba and had
to be towed to Port Everglades. The trouble is, the
owners of the ship couldn't pay the docking fees.
They wanted to sell the ship to the company that
was renting it, but meanwhile the costs were
mounting and the cargo was at risk of becoming

was emergency food aid to the people of
Mozambique and Jordan. It was sent by the
people of the United States.
That's when a fellow named Tom Burke stepped
in. Tom, as some of you know, is the Executive
Director of Port Everglades. He sized up the
situation. He saw that the food would spoil if the
ship didn't take off soon. He also knew how
incredibly complicated and costly the whole
situation had become. So, what he did was make
the decision to wipe out $44,000 in docking fees.
Well, here's the bottom line: Because Tom
Burke and Port Everglades ate half the docking
fee, hundreds of starving people are now eating

Lake Wyman Park
- by Craig Lustgarten
Boca Raton's Intracoastal Park System will
offer residents new waterway vistas and boating
facilities with the expansion of Lake Wyman
The 54-acre park will be located on the west
side of the Intracoastal, behind the 5th Avenue
Shops and adjacent to present park facilities.
When completed, the new park will offer
residents the opportunity to take nature walks
through a mangrove system, canoeing for those
so inclined, public boat dockage, and new picnic
and cutting facilities.
Construction of phase one of the park began in
late July. Amenities to be constructed in this
phase will include a waterfront picnic shelter and
overlook decks from the beginnings of a
boardwalk system that will snake throughout the
mangroves. Also planned is a sandbar type beach
on the south end of the park.
Grant Thornbrough, planner and landscape
architect for the project, said there will be a self-
contained system of canoe trails going through
the mangroves, which will be accessible from a
canoe launching area.
Thornbrough noted the history of these canal
trails, saying, "They were old mosquito ditches
that were dug years ago to help drain the
mangroves, but most of them are still in pretty
good shape and thus we don't have much work to
do to transform them into a system of canoe
Construction of phase one of the park is
expected to be completed by the end of the year,
and is expected to cost $1.2 million.
Phase 2 of the project will include the
completion of the North boardwalk, the canoe
trails, and more picnic facilities.
Phase three of the park will emphasize the
construction of the city's only municipal boating
facility--a pubic dockage area that will have 56
boat slips that will be leased on a seasonal or
yearly basis. There will also be a day-use facility
for boat tie-up and 50 boat and trailer parking
spaces. The dock's building facilities will
encompass a harbormaster's office, a bait and
tackle shop, community rooms, and a snack bar.
In addition, four new boat ramps will be
constructed to accommodate busy boating
traffic. Thornbrough commented that this will
alleviate congestion and other problems
occurring at the present two boat ramps at Silver
Palm Park. He describes this present boating
launch area as: "One of the most dangerous
ramps in the state; there are very bad currents
there and a lot of boat traffic, the ramps are very
steep, and weekly, cars are getting pulled into the
water and boats are being lost."
Opposition to the project has come from
residents of nearby apartments across the
wateway who have their own boating dockage
and don't see the need for public facilities. There
is also fear that the manatee population will be
affected, along with the seagrasses that support
the animals. Thornbrough said the city and its
planners are doing their best to enhance the
quality of the environment. He noted that some
dredging will be necessary in the construction of
the boating facility, but the seagrass is expected
to make a comeback.
As to how the mangroves will be affected, there
has already been deterioration due to extensive
boating traffic and plans are to counter the
damage by taking out the "exotic vegetation" and
planting new mangroves. The existing canals wilt
be cleared to. allow better water circulation and
thus a more active nursing habitat for fish.
Thornbrough says, "It's going to be a very low
impact kind of park; the mangroves are really
being left there."
For mangroves that have to be removed, a
"mitigation area" will be expanded in which new
trees will be planted.

8 Warerfronr News Volume 4 Issue 8 November 1987 Broward News
The Slopes of Broward
Intended as an information article, about the
public launching ramps of Broward areas; this is
tempting to throw in a little opinion. To the many
users of boat launching ramps, and even to many.
casual observers here, there\is a noticeable.
difference between various ramp sites in,respect.
to how the responsible public agency acts.
These ramps are the slopes of Bro'ward and
because of their impact on the local economy and
the life styie of many are in a way comparable to
the slopes of famous ski areas. Yet our slopes
receive practically no recognition or support in
contrast to what any alpine slide is given.
Herewith follows a local boater's view, going
from south to north, of the public boat launching'
ramps available to this sector.
HOLLYWOOD has two nice areas about one-half
mile apart. They are roughly over five miles from
Port Everglades and over eight miles from
Baker's Haulover. i.e., nice inland boating but
bridges and no-wake zones to get to sea.
Polk Street at 8th Avenue North is on the south side of
North Lake. This is just north of where- the Hollywood
Boulevard Bridge crosses the ICW. The whole area has been
recently and nicely rebuilt. Four double public ramps are co-,
located next to the Hollywood Marina (telephone 921-3035).
Locked private toilets. USCG Aux office. 8 AM to 6 PM parking
area by Hollywood permit. Lots of other meter parking for
single or trailer vehicles. 20 hour meters at twenty -five cents,
per hour. The whole area is nicely-landscapped, clean, and
securely patrolled. No fuel, food or other resources nearby:
Johnson Street at 8th Avenue North, in Holland Park.
Is the south end of West Lake. This is indeed 5 lovely area but
the hours, are short so frequent boaters go to the.Polk Street
site. Closed Mondays and Tuesdays, 6AM to 6PM on
weekends and holidays, 9AM to 6 PM W. TH,F. Four double
ramps. Parking is twenty-five cents per hour. Good public
telephones, rest rooms, pavillions with rustic decor
observation deck. picnic tables, bike path, very clean and
secure. Beautiful mangrove and wooded areas, natural
wildlife. No food, fuel, or other supplies. It appeared that trees
would handicap masted vessels.
DANIA Cut-off Canal ramps are on the south side of the
canal adjacent to a multi-style fuel point at Tugboat Annies'.
In Harbour Town Marina alongside, several charter cruise
yachts. Port Laudania, an active small commercial berthing
for various Bahama traders is across the canal to the North.
The ramps are about three-quarters of a mile west ofthe ICW
at mile marker 1068.8. By land from US Route I go east on NE
2nd Street to Gulfstream Road, then porth to NE3rd Street then
into the marina area. There are four single ramps with plenty
of single and towed parking. Two dollars per day. Vessel and
crew can/fuel at the lively spot. Currently planned for
development, there are no public facilities, phones, supplies.
A Marine Specialities Building. including in-out dry storage is
forecast. The ramps look steep but work out ok. Skippers
warn there is a big drop-off that at low tide a rapid launch may
plough into the bottom and get stuck. Between the launch site
and Port Everglades Government Cut the run is about 2 1/2
miles mostly at limited speed or dead slow during manatee
time. Large commercial and navy vessels have right of way.
John U. Uoyd State Park Beach Recreation Area
offers the closest public launching ramps to Port Everglades
Government Cut. About three-quarters of a mile, but slow due
to speed limits and rough because many-so-called skippers
like to make waves and are negligent in respect to others.
Road entry is from Dania Beach Boulevard bridge over the
ICW, i.e., A1A, then north on N. Ocean Drive toward the USCG
Base, through the Park Ranger Gate' (6503 N. Ocean Drive,.
Dania; tel. 923-2833). This is a very fine park and all the
facilities areproper. The State funded a facelift of about
S600,000; picnic beach, boating and other sports are in a
pretty mangrove, tall pine and natural area. By road or water
there is an entry fee: one dollar for vehicle plus fifty cents per
person, except during winter. The park is open from one hour
before sunrise to 11 PM (later during special events). There are
two single ramps with a catwalk and docks. Plenty of single
car and trailer parking spaces but the entire park may be
closed when beach-pi6nic jams occur on Sundays; better
phone Park Rangers. Public telephone at the ramps 925-9084;
filet tables, water, snacks, toilets are near. No fuel or marine
service. The Whiskey Creek Canteen has boat and canoe
rentals. R.J. Marine Tow boat (792-2079) is often at the docks.
USCG Aux is often on scene offering courtesy boat
1784 S.E. 15th Street, Fort Lauderdale, public
launching at two double ramps has been known to some for
many years. Before the condos. hotels, marinas, and the lively
scene. A.few blocks east of Federal Highway (Route 1) on 15th
Street adjacent to the marine police station, the canal, some
charts show it as Seminole River, is less than a mile from the
Port Everglades Turning Basin. Due, to the interesting scenery
on both banks, a short no-wake zone is no problem (unless
you have to pay a ticket) and Bimini seems dead ahead. It
isn't, so take a USCGAux or US Power Squadron courseto see
what I mean about "you better be prepared".
15th Street used to be a jammed, no-room lot, most week-
ends. But since August 1987 one must pay to park so there is
no longer a hectic struggle. Saturday, Sunday. Holidays S4
per day, or $20 per month, or $100 per year. 6AM to 9PM Early
birds are levied as they come ashore: breakdowns who go
home get their fee back. Not.much single car parking. A sign
has always specified "will tow if parked over 24 hours," but
towing for this cause has been rare over the years.
This points to two strange situations for Fort
Lauderdale which self-vaunts as a major boating
capital. Quite a number of north Floridians,
Texans, Great Lakersand even Canadians are
bitten by the Bimini-or-Bust bug and tow their
boat here; but there is no place to officially or
safely leave their vehicle and gear. Secondly,
whether towed or.larger, there is no place for Gulf
Stream crossers to "file a float plan". Thus any
undue delay in arrival will not be known until they
are long in trouble. Most skippers do not even
think of this, but those who do usually find no one
willing to help.
At each end of the 15th Street canal there are
marine supply stores, fuel-points, snack and food
places, as well as the bar-scene. At the ramps
there is fresh water, electric power (bring your
own 20 foot link-ups), a public telephone 761-
9030, a filet table, and presently unlovely toilets.

Waterfront News Volume 4 Issue 8 November 1987 9
The latter and the docks have been unlovely or
worse- over the years. The slopes of Fort
Lauderdale rate poorly compared to the rest. At
15th Street each ramp has a special bump (seam)
which during haul-out stops many a trailer unless'
you put extra weight on the prime mover drive
wheel and take a flying start to surmount the
bump. This is a busy canal and sometimes the
quai is congested by broken down very unsightly
vessels, or by nomad slumberers, or by seized
druggers so that launch users must wait. Lots of
dive boats use the quai. A certain number of sail
boats launch here; a problem due to rigging time
and to limited overhead clearances. Quite often
the ramps here are green-slick; maybe not
exceptional but quite a variety of snappy
supposedly tow capable vehicles have joined the
tenant angel fish and crabs. Usually green-horn
skippers but also due to fact that only about one
out of twelve tries to use chocks and few of these
are pre-equipped as launch boaters should be.
SIn sight of the ramps is Pier 66 where the Red
.Pennant is flown when National Weather Service
classes the weather as dangerous for boaters.
Bt a wise skipper knows that most often said
weather is really non-boatable before or after the
red is specified.
15th Street has another advantage which you
should hope to never need. The USCG of Dania:
Base often leaves its tows here: Alternatively
Cape Ann Towing works out of this canal (463-
2527), and Captain Ellis is constantly available..
7th Avenue SW. at 2151 7th Avenue South, on the New
River, just south of Wist Las Olas Boulevard, is at Sailboat
Bend. This ite at present has a lot of drawbacks, no marine or
other stores at hand, no food closer than several blocks, no
fuel, no toilets, even in daytime a feeling of insecurity and
ripoffs likely. Almost under the 4th Avenue bridge which is a
meeting place for the barons of the open road. So I have never
seen it crowded: single car and towed vehicle parking
available free. There are three ramps and a good quai but this
is on the very active New River with traffic and wake. There
are public' telephones, nice (occupied) benches and trees
where one could picnic. Across the river are rafted vessels
and the Sailboat Bend association tries to keeep the area
pretty and nice. It is not clear what will happen if the proposed
River walk is built The site is about two miles-from the

active. Security seems good. but park office is at tennis courts
a short distance away. with toilets and public telephones (566-
0622). No fuel, marine or food stores'in the park. Park closed
midnight to 5AM. Currently, there is no charge for
parking/launching, but one is rumored. Sometimes there are
fairs or night freebie concerts. Bimini topped boats may get
under the fixed bridge (said to be 6 feet vertical clearance) en
'route down the River, with long idle speed zones, about a mile
to the ICW, likely 25 minutes run to Bahia Mar and there is siui
the big "S" bend with about 2 1/2 miles to Government Cut. So'
this will never be an international port such as 15th Street.

the inlet is known for its vagaries: sometimes shoaling, as
local knowledge is vital to learn the dog leg and avoid the
jetties in strong currents, with the Route A1A bridge at a
critical point for underpowered sailboats. The Port Everglades
Inlet is way south, and the next northern launch area is
Spanish River with Boca Raton inlet'.
Pompano has done a fine job with 3 double ramps. lot of
quais, lots of well arranged single car parking and trailer
vehicle areas, and sail boat launching is facilitated by
adequate area with no overhead problems. Apparently there
are crowded times when vehicles overflow onto 14th Street

Redfish to Find New Homes in Biscayne Bay
by Rosemary Sullivant
MIAMI --- Redfish are coming back to Biscayne
Bay. Ten thousand juvenile redfish, raised at the
University of Miami Experimental Fish Hatchery
from eggs provided by the Florida Department of
Natural Resources, will be released into Biscayne
Bay next week.
The release will take place in two locations.
Some of the 46-day-old juveniles will be released
at Dinner Key on October 17 as part of Dade
county's Baynanza celebration. The majority of
the young redfish will be taken earlier in the week
to a sea grass area in Biscayne Bay where UM
biologists think they will the best chance to
thrive. The juvenile redfish wilt be about 1 to 112
"Because Biscayne Bay has no significant
numbers of redfish now, putting redfish there will
be a kind of natural tagging experiment," says
UM Professor Elizabeth Clarke, scientific
director of the experimental hatchery at UM's
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
"It's usual for hatchery grown redfish to be
released when they are still too small to tag.
Putting them in a place where there is almost no
natural population will help us and other
hatchery programs assess our success," Clarke
This is the second redfish release this year for
the UM experimental hatchery. Earlier this
month, two thousand juveniles were taken to the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Merritt Island \
National Wildlife Refuge at Titusville. The refuge I
has provided redfish brood stock for both the UM
experimental hatchery and the Florida
Department of Natural Resources. ,
The UM experimental hatchery is planning
another redfish release in Biscayne Bay in
Damselfish Dating Game: Science Learns Why Fish 'Talk'
by Jack McClintock
After listening to the sounds of damselfish for
15 years, Dr. Arthur Myrberg has learned what
they are saying. Now he can even talk back.
Most fishes make sounds, but Myrberg, who is
professor of marine biology at the University of
Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science, is the first to prove that the
sounds have meaning, and to "translate" them
"What this suggests is that we may be able to
understand, predict and perhaps even control the
behavior" of fish, Myrberg says.
Practical applications of that are easy to
imagine--although they are only daydreams
today. They range from "ordering" gamefish to
appear at a certain place to please a fisherman,
through warning fish of some environmental
danger, to using the noise of fish-talk to cover the
sounds of human military operations.

Readers Fly New
Flag At Sea
by Jean Trebbi
Boaters can now signal to other readers at sea
that they have books aboard that they are willing
to share, trade and/or talk about.
A new pennant uses the national library logo of
a reader and a book appliqued on green and white
The Books Aboard Burgee is the idea of Carol
Nemeyer; former president of the American
Library Association, and retired associate
director of the Library of Congress. Flying early
test models aboard their 44-foot cat ketch
Rainbow, the Nemeyers have traded hundreds of
books while at sea.
"We see the Books Aboard Burgee as adding
the pleasure of books to the pleasure of boats,"
says Walter Sullivan, president of BUC Books of
Endorsed by the Seven Seas Cruising
Association, the burgee is an efficient way to
acquire new reading material for those at sea
with more time than space.
The burgee has been developed by the Florida
Center for the Book in cooperation with the Center
for the Book in the Library of Congress to promote
books and reading. Funds from the Ruffner
Foundation to launch this project provide that
proceeds be used to promote reading and combat

History of the Intracoastal
'bays too shallow to navigate even for the
sharpies. Because the gasoline engine was not
yet introduced, windward passages through the
new, narrow channels became nearly impossible
for the fine old cutters and working sailboats.
There were at one time thirty inlets used by the
local fishermen, but these were reduced to two at
drawbridges. Piles used as markers were
unlighted and later on, when they rotted at the
water line, became dangerous obstacles to
mariners. So the picturesque era of white sailed

gradually the fees from boat traffic dried up. It
was then that the waterway came under federal
Today in northern Florida, the ICW is a channel
of draining tidal flow whose currents pass slowly
by wildlife preserves, salt marshes, estuaries,
bays and creeks. Its character changes in the
south where its course is driven by sea walls
holding back the spoil-pile foundations for high-
rise condominiums and the swimming pools of
posh estates. Despite its muddy brown color, the
result of tannic acid from inland mangroves, it is
home to the gentle manatee, the giant tarpon,
schools of mullet, diving cormorants, pelicans
and many more Florida wild species.
So now, after a long, functional history as a
lifeline for Indians, mission plantations and
hardy pioneers in a wild and wonderful
wilderness, the ICW functions primarily as. a
floating "strip" for millions of dollars worth of

Why they're called the "West Indies"

Spain I/ Portugal
by James E. Sullivan
Following the discovery of the West Indies by
Columbus (1492) the Portuguese became
persistent trespassers of the new-found lands.
Their sea power, navigational abilities, and
hunger for territories led them to encroach widely
on the Spanish claims. A division of the New
World had to be agreed upon.
This was accomplished on June 7, 1494 by the
Treaty of Tordesillas (a town in northern Spain)
where Spain and Portugal divied-up the non-
christian world. This treaty modified the
delimitation of the Spanish and Portuguese
spheres of exploration authorized by Pope
Alexander VI in two bulls issued on May 4, 1493.
The treaty gave to Portugal all lands which
might be discovered by either of the countries
east of a straight line drawn from the poles to a
distance of 370 leagues west of Cape Verde,
Africa. Note that the length of a league varied
from country to country but it is approximately
three miles long. All new lands that were west of
this line were to belong to Spain. The line of,

As a result of this treaty Portugal claimed
Brazil as it extended east of this line. Also the
Indies, found by Columbus, were claimed by
Spain because they were west of this line and that
is why they are called the West Indies.

Designer chosen for Swimming Hall of Fame bond project
by Colleen Mahoney
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL-- Imagine the most
unique--innovative--state-of-the-art design and it
will probably be reflected in the transformation of
Fort Lauderdale's International Swimming Hall of
Fame Aquatic Complex. Arquitectonica of Coral
Gables has been selected to design the multi
million dollar Hall of Fame project which will
include the addition of a second 50 meter pool, an
addition to the museum and complete renovation
of the existing exhibitry.
Arquitectonica is presently working on a
master concept plan scheduled to be unveiled in
November. This master plan will focus on the
design and placement of the new pool and
museum's addition as well as the possibility of
incorporating the ISHOF complex with the beach
and A1A which would dovetail with the City's
beach revitalization project.
Funding for the multi million dollar expansion
and renovation of the ISHOF museum and pool
has been secured from the City of Fort Lauderdale
Bond Issue and the Broward County Tourist
Development Council. Funding for the new state-
of-the-art educational displays highlighting the
recreational and competitive aspects of aquatics
will come from the International Swimming Hall
of Fame Corporation.
The work of Arquitectonica has no doubt
caught the eye of drivers on Interstate 95 as they
pass The Atlantis in Miami, a condominium
building at the edge of Biscayne Bay which has a
37 foot cube removed from its center. The Atlantis
s kycourt contains a jacuzzi, palm trees and a red
circular staircase. It won a Progressive
Architecture Citation in 1980 and a South Florida
Chapter of The American Institute of Architects
Award in 1983.

Arthritis "Aquacixe program offered this fall
by Ezra Krieg
This Arthritis Foundation is now accepting
applications for the Arthritis Aquacize Program
being held in a variety of locations in Broward
"Physicians and therapists'often recommend
water exercises for people with arthritis, "said
Larry Goldberg, a member of the Foundation's
Southeast Florida Branch Board of Directors.
"The buoyancy of the water reduces the effects of
gravity, making it easier for people to move
painful joints. For this reason, the Foundation
developed Arthritis Aquacize, a popular social
and recreational program, specifically for people
who have arthritis."
Aquacize provides participants the
opportunity to do gentle activities in warm water
under the' guidance of trained personnel. The
water is kept at a warm temperature, which also
helps to relieve pain. Although these activities do
not replace prescribed therapeutic exercises,
they may help decrease overall pain and

Many divers do not realize the high costs
associated with decompression sickness.
Chamber treatments can run from a small four-
digit number up to several thousands of dollars
depending on the type of problemthat occurs and
its geographical location. In mentioning
geographical location I am referring to the hiqh
cost of air evacuation when necessary. An airlift
from the Caribbean, for example, could cost up to
$10,000. Air ambulance companies may refuse to
evacuate without cash up front or an okay from
an insurance company. I
Insurance companies will not always pay in the
case of decompression sickness. Many insurance
companies have never heard of decompression
sickness. There is more to it than simply calling
your insurance company and asking if your

ask specific questions that should be answered to
you in writing. Ask your insurance company the

Divers should not dive without adequate
insurance policies and should be aware that sixty
percent of all bends cases the Divers Alert
Network (a non-profit emergency divers
treatment center) have encountered are dives
that were made within the dive table limits.
The Divers Alert Network (DAN) conducted a
profile on three separate cases and concluded
that treatments range anywhere from $4,000 to
$33,000. A very serious case could cost as.much
as $50,000 predicted the DAN study. Although
some divers recover with as little as one
treatment costing $1,000, sixty-one percent of the

emergency hotline for diving accidents (919-684-

over the country and aid in the emergency
treatment with the attending physician. DAN has
developed an insurance policy through Provident

coverage for the treatment of diving accidents.
The insurance will soon be available to DAN
members for $25 annually.
As we have seen, insurance is mandatory for
the safe diver. An additional measure that can be
taken to protect divers from great financial
burden is knowledge. In sport diving, bends most
commonly occur after dives below the fifty-foot
range. Since a large category of dives are made in
this range, a deep diving course is highly
recommended to a high degree of divers. A good
deep diving course will cover factors pertaining
to decompression sickness, safety and practical
I would like to thank the Divers Alert Network
for all their helpful information regarding the
financial aspects of bends. For information on
joining DAN call 919-684-2948. Dive safely.
Always use the safe approach.

A Dive Back In Time
by Bryan Brooks
The German U Boat 352 was resting on the
bottom off the North Carolina coast near Cape
Lookout. Chief Radio Officer Kurt Kruger heard
the propeller of a small ship cruising on the
surface at about 16 knots. It was May 9, 1942.
The U-352s captain, Helmut Rathke, brought
the submarine to the surface at periscope depth
to have a look. Deciding to sink the small boat,
one torpedo was fired from one of the bow tubes.
An explosion was heard. Thinking the ship had
been hit and sunk, the U-352 proceeded forward
to the area where the small ship was. Unknown to
Capt. Rathke, the torpedo exploded prematurely,
and the ship he had fired on was the Coast Guard
The commanding officer of the cutter, Maurice
D. Jester, quickly brought his ship to the exact
spot where the U-352 was. Lt. Cmdr. Jester
dropped a pattern of depth charges; the sub was
badly hurt and fell to the bottom at 115 feet.
The U-boat's lights were out, but the sailors
somehow held calm together. Another pattern of
charges finished her--the U-352 was history.
Captain Rathke ordered the boat to surface in an
effort to save the crew.
Rathke had the ballast tanks blown, and the
sub came to the surface with a 45 degree list.
Within a few minutes, the crew spilled out into the
Atlantic Ocean. The cutter Icarus raked the sub
with withering cannon and machine gun fire,
killing some of the U-boat's crew. As the
submarine slid beneath the waves, the Icarus
The Icarus approached the German sailors in
the water. Into a loud megaphone a voice yelled,
"I wish you a good evening with the sharks." The
Icarus then departed, leaving the sailors in the
water alone. Forty-five minutes later, the Icarus
returned and took the remaining Germans

the war. The men were taken prisoner and spent
the rest of World War II in America.
Forty-five years later on a dive charter boat
heading southeast from Beaufort, North Carolina,
a wierd feeling came over me. As an avid student
of World War II history, I have always been
interested in the men who lived and died in the
little sardine cans called U-boats. Of the forty
thousand men sent out by Hitler, only about
seven thousand ever came back alive.
Growing up on the southeast coast of Florida in
the 1940's, I had heard the rumors from old salts
about the German U-boat that had sunk off the
coast of Fort Lauderdale. I became obsessed with
that legend and in finding it. I even started a file
and spoke with anybody who was crazy enough
to talk to me about it. I found five people who
claimed to have seen it. The problem was that
each of the five said the sunken sub was in a
None of those places had a German submarine!
Finally, even I realized that the German U Boat
probably existed only in my imagination. There is
little doubt, though, that they were, in fact, here
during the war. Tankers were seen blazing on the
'ocean's horizon from the corner of Las Olas and
Atlantic by too many people.
The dive charter boat reaches U-352's wreck
location, twenty miles from the North Carolina
coast. The day is perfect with light seas and good
visibility. Camera in hand, I sink below the
surface and begin a descent into history. The sub
lies on its starboard side: fish are everywhere,
some quite large. The sand the submarine lies on
is clean, hard sand and bounces the light from the
sun to further illuminate the boat.
While swimming slowly from bow to stern, one
sees what 45 years in the ocean does. The wooden
planking on her deck has long since disappeared.
You can see what is left of the pressure hull. The
guns have been stripped and the propeller taken,
but with her conning tower showing, you know
she is a submarine, a type VIIC U-boat. Schools of
amberjack swim across her chasing schools of

smaller, silver baitfish. Corrosion and growth
hide the German steel, but the outline is there, and
one can't help but appreciate the sense of history
in being there. Too soon my time below ends and
my camera runs out of film. Slowly ascending the
anchor line, I see the sub's outline grow darker,
then disappear. I surface back to the reality of the
It's Sunday, May 5th, 1945, as the German U-
boat U-853 fires two torpedoes at the coal collier
Black Point within sight of Point Judith, Rhode
Island. The coal ship sinks, taking 13 of her
crewmen. The ironic point of this is that the war
with Germany is only 28 hours from being over. It
is also 24 hours AFTER German Admiral Donitz
sent messages to his sea wolves to cease all
Two days after diving the U-352 in North
Carolina, I find myself setting sail from Point
Judith, Rhode Island. Always looking for the U-
boat in Fort Lauderdale, it seems that I have'
found one on another planet. The Water here is
cold and decidedly non-tropical. Quests can
become obsessions, and my quest for the German
U-boat has been long. Why? Am I some war
monger? Am I some Aryan master race idiot? No,
to all of the above! As a man who crawls around
in the ocean's womb to make a living as a dive
instructor, for me it has been a quest for answers
to why people were crammed into tiny tubes and
sent out to war, to kill other people they didn't
Letters found after the war show that the
captain of the U-853 was a 6'9" man named
Helmut Fromsdorf. On board the U-853, leading
seaman Rudolph Lehmann had written his sister
of his worry about their watch officer Fromsdorf
who, besides eagerly seeking a captain's
position, was known among the crew as willing to
overcome almost any odds to land a Ritter Cross
medal. Was the coal ship sunk and the crew of the
U-boat sacrificed for one man's egg? Is that why
we have war?

Cruise To Freeport Discovery and Adv

I know exactly how the immigrants felt when
they were herded into the great hall at Ellis Island
for processing. You too can experience this same
ambience when you take a cruise on Discovery I,
out of Port Everglades, to Freeport.
You first enter this great cavernous warehouse
and are checked over by a guard at the door and
told to get into line. At 7am this line is already a
staggering length, snaking around the entire
nlammouth structure. It's dark and'dank inside
and the line shuffles. More than a half hour later
you approach a solitary door. You are carrying
your tickets and papers in one hand and a hefty
overnight suitcase for your stay in Fleeport over
your shoulder. When you finally reach the door a
stocky man with snow white hair looks at you,
looks at your papers and says, "In there."
Through the door is a waiting room with a
check-in counter much like an airport Here you
find out that not every guard knows that you have
to get into that 3rd line.over there to get a
boarding pass. One told me to sit and wait,
another shouted, "get in-line over there." -
At last a boarding pass that will get me on my
way..Well not quite. You must now get in another,
line and show a police officer your pass in order
to ride the up-escalator to the gangway. Oh yes!
Unlike on airlines this one pass is not taken from
you by the ships purser as you board. Keep it. You
also have to use it to board on your return trip. I
left mine behind in Freeport and had to do some
fancy talking to slither back on board without it.
Here we are finally aboard the "Love Boat", but
the lockers are too small for our two overnight
bags to fit into. Anyhow, lockers cost eachh and
the gal behind the counter where you get beach
towels and pay for the lockers said she'd watch
both bags for $5. Makes sense, right?.
We checked out the ship while trying to find the
complimentary breakfast and saw painters
working and maintenance being done one section
of deck at a time. She looked pretty good for her
age. She's gone through three name changes,
though. Maiden name; Scandinavian Sea, first
marriage: Venus Venture, current: Discovery I.
We had breakfast in the Galleon dining room
and other than having to insist firmly that the
waiter (who takes you to a table after you select
your food) seat us away from a table of heavy
smokers, so shrouded their neighbors needed a

gas mask, all went well. After that we went to a
briefing in the lounge where the cruise director
made the Bahamas sound like we would be
landing on another planet.
"Don't rent a scooter. They're not safe."..."Don't
rent a car."..."They drive on the left, we don't,
you'll have an accident."
He made the-Customs and Immigration sound ,
so complicated that I had to go and speak to the
officials on board to check it out myself. No
problem! Proper documents, fill out the entry
cards properly and you'll get a very friendly
welcome to the Bahamas. The U,S. and Bahamian
officers work together on these cruises. They are
exemplary since they handle up to 1200 or so
people per trip on a ship designed to
accommodate 500 in-cabin passengers.
The folks who stowed their luggage at the
check-in desk had a long waitfTo clear customs at
Freeport but peopleon day-only tickets were
whizzed through first, We had carried our bags
and in 15 minutes had been inspected and were
getting into a taxi for our hotel. Taxis are really an
adventure not to miss, not expensive but, the
drivers will take the cash paying patrons ahead
of ones riding on all inclusive ticket vouchers. It
takes them 3 weeks to get paid from the agent and
he takes 10% off for himself.
Ah!....Deserted beaches, drinkable tap water
and casinos. I-like the old Princess best. It has lots
of glitz and glamor. The Lycaya is new and slick.
Talk to the natives and you'll find the best
places to eat. Aunt Olga, a sales lady in Goombay

not pricy and the food is excellent. A good

bus ride from the Casino. But before you go for
dinner stop in at Sir Winston's Pub for a game of
darts, conch fritters and watch the channel 7
news from Miami/Ft. Lauderdale on TV. You'll
feel even more at home in Freeport if you get,
away from the tourist center of the International
Bazzar. Just at the edge of downtown there's a
Pantry Pride and Winn-Dixie.
Far off the beaten path we found Freddie's
Restaurant: Great native food and. Bahamian
charm in a brand new building where you are
greeted by chickens in the front yard. If you don't
have a car, Freddie will pick you up at your hotel
and take you back home-again after dinner.
I rented a VW Bug from Tilden for a day and a
half, they only charged me for a day. We toured
all over the island. Driving takes common sense
and think left, that's all mon! The scooters I saw..
this trip in Freeport were not the marginal
equipment.in times past. They were all new ones.
Most taxis and the new buses, some with air
conditioning, were all much better than I had seen
on a trip here 10 years ago.
All too soon ;t was time to head back to board
the ship for Fort Lauderdale, a leisurely evening
cruise back on flat, calm water. The maitre'd this
time, trying to sort out seating arrangements
again. How about a non-smoking dining room,
Captain? A very entertaining floor show in the"
lounge after dinner, a few lost coins in the slots.
Then from the bridge deck we watched the ship
being docked by the helmsman and pilot; finally
disembarked through the maze of
companionways that led to the pier.
The escalator was going down this time
but..YO! The line at the bottom being checked out
by the customs has stopped! People are crashing,
piling up against each other like bowling pins! To
the rescue! Five more customs officers rushed in
to divide up the line just in time.

The Main Brace
by Bobbi Belanger
Because Duffy Jackson and I have been friends
for over 10 years, whenever I get into a jazz
reference book I look up Jackson in the back. One
afternoon recently in one of my favorite used
book stores I pulled down just such a book.
Following my usual routine I went to the J's in the
index. Listed there was Greig "Chubby" Jackson,
p, 142, etc. Reading the brief bio' about the
famous 5-string bassist who was so influential to
the sound of Woody Herman's band in the 40's my
eyes fell on the last line of the entry: "Chubby also
has a son who plays drums." That, my dear
readers is a gross understatement. You see, Duff
Clark Jackson got his first drum set at age 4 and
by the time he was 8 Duffy had been featured on
the cover of a Japanese music magazine, was on
the TV show "I've Got A Secret,' had co-anchored
a drum clinic with the great Louis Bellson and had
five or six Jerry Lewis Telethons under his belt.
Duffy started out in Freeport, Long Island on
July 3, 1953. His family soon moved to Chicago
where he spent his first four years. By 1957 the
Jacksons retreated to New York to stay until
1963. At that tme, Duffy's parents divorced and
Duffy went with his Dad to tour the country. From
the age of 10 until his senior year in high school
Duffy attended 14 different schools and grew up
playing with the heavies of our time: Roy
Eldridge, Charlie Shavers, Ben Webster, San "The
Man" Taylor, Dizzy Gillespie and Woody Herman
and his big band The Thundering Herd.

than to just play what you want."
In 1970 Duffy and Chubby landed in Miami
Beach after extensive touring and Duffy was
finally allowed to stay put for his entire senior
year a Miami Beach High School. Well, almost.
Days before the formal graduation he got a call
for a gig with pianist Monte Alexander, bassist
Ray Brown, vibraphonist Milt Jackson and
saxophonist Teddy Edwards in Hollywood,
California. Who could say, "no"? Duffy informally
graduated in the principal's office and was off to
find fame in Tinseltown. He found it. His
California audience loved him. After a 3-month
stint at the Riverboat in New York with Monte,
Duffy came back to a town he had taken by storm
earlier that summer of '71 .They had not forgotten
him. He reestablished, his acquaintance with
Louis Bellson and appeared with him on the
"Tonight Show." Through this reassociation Duffy
landed a spot with Lena Home. He toured with
Lena for six months to Las Vegas, New York,
Chicago and Miami.
Back in Los Angles Duffy did some recording,
but by 19 years old he was back on the road again
with Pete Candoli and Edie Adams with his dad,
travelling through Europe, South America and the
U.S. When the tour ended Bellson once again
stepped in and got him together with Sammy
Davis, Jr.'s band. Duffy toured with Davis' band
on and off for the next three years, with time off
for hip surgery and another six months gig with
Monte. Duffy also appeared on the first 50 shows
of Sammy & Company, a syndicated talk show in
the mid 70's.
Duffy was 22 years old and was getting tired.
So he came back to the only roots he had planted.
Miami Beach. Chubby and Duffy played the
summer and fall of '75 at The Hideaway Lounge
on Miami Beach. Here,he managed to stay put for
a time, but when Count Basie asked him to tour
for the Count's 75th birthday Duffy was off and
running again. This tour took him to the Kennedy
Center Honors in Washington D.C., a PBS Special
with Ella Fitzgerald&-and the-Count, and a.
recording session that produced Kansas City
Sho/uti.;f'thad to leave the band because of his
health. All this was causing' havoc to.his hip.
Duffy rested for a few years. .
In 1983 Lionel Hampton was planning a Japan
tour and asked Duffy to come. Feeling better, he
packed his drums. Duffy is one of Hamp's
favorites. He's one of the few drummers who can
keep strict, simple, straight; non-accented time.
Simple, but tedious. It.proved too-much for Duffy
and his.hip and his part of the tour ended
OPEN 7 DAYS
Duffy's luck turned upwards. In 1983 Valdosta
(Georgia) State College offered him Artist in
Residency a government grant to teach. It was
the first of its kind for a full year. His residency
put him with children where he felt he was making
his contribution to the jazz greats of tomorrow.
Duffy loved it. He conducted clinics in 30 different
schools in Georgia and it put him in touch with
thousands of students. During this residency
Duffy was selected to be the drummer for the
National Association of Jazz Educators (NAJE).
This year will be his fifth consecutive year in this
In the summer of '84 Duffy went to New York to
visit his family and was backstage at Lionel
Hampton's concert at Avery Fisher Hall. George
Wein grabbed him, shoved him on stage and he
finished the last 35 minutes of the concert. Two
days later he was at the Montreal Jazz Festival
with the Hamp' and from there to Europe. When
the Hampton band came back to the states they
did ten Kool Jazz Festivals, one of them being in
San Diego. While there Duffy woke up but couldn't
get up without help. X-rays showed a dislodged
hip. He did three more weeks of the Festivals at
the Hollywood Bowl, San Diego Zoo and in
Monterey before he went to the hospital for his
.Three months after surgery he was playing for
NAJE again. He ran into Count Basie and rejoined
the band for another five months. But it proved
Since 1985 Duffy has kept his touring local and
near-local. He's a regular at the Jacksonville Jazz
Festival and has rekindled his musical
relationship with Monte. He was in New York
recently playing with Monte and there's a
recording in the wings.
On November 5th Duffy will be featured with the
University of Miami Concert Jazz Band at
Penguin's in Fort Lauderdale. Please try to catch"
him, you never know when he'll be off on tour
In closing, I'd like to leave you with Duffy's-
formula for success: Street wise- conservatory
training = individualityy And some advise,
"Creating intensity at any dynamic levels the,
key to, a .mature understanding of music.
Specifically, in the case of the drummer"
Again, I urge you to check out D uffy's technique'
with the Miami CJB. Shows are 8 and 11 p.m.
Monte Alexander is scheduled to play Penguin's
in December and if Duffy's around, you can bet
he'll sit in a set or two. Penguin's is located two
blocks west of the Intracoastal /ater6ay on the
north side of East Commercial Boulevard.

Waterfront Performing A
Center gets new director
by Joy Bedick \
FORT LAUDERDALE -=-The Performing Arts Center
Authority in August named Dr. A. Hugh Adams,
former president of Broward Community College,
as the new executive director for the $42 million
Performing Arts Center. He will begin his position
Tuesday, September 1.
The Authority's personnel committee had met
with Adams earlier this week and recommended
him to the full board at their monthly Authority
meeting on August 28. The board voted 7-0 in-
favor of hiring Adams for the $71,725 post.
Authority vice-chairman Alan Levy, who is
chairman of the personnel committee, said, "The
Authority now has a director who represents our
thinking and at the same time is a leader. We are
pleased and fortunate to find someone of his
stature and prominence."
"I can't imagine a finer candidate anywhere in
the United States," Levy said.
Authority Chairman Karen Margulies said, "Dr.
Adams is a well-respected high-profile person in
this community who brings a knowledge of the
community and a wealth of knowledge about
fundraising. He's a strong administrator and
a wonderful addition to our team."
Adams replaces former executive director
Sidney J. McQueen, who resigned in July.
Gerald Mager, secretary of the Authority,
"Dr. Adams has a proven track record of being an
outstanding administrator, fund-raiser and
leader in the community. He has a unique blend of
The Authority is a 7-member public body which
oversees the development and operation of the
Center, scheduled to open in 1990.
Adams was president of BCC for 19 years,
during which time the college grew from one to

FORT LAUDERDALE -- Florida Secretary of
State Jim Smith will join Ft. Lauderdale Chamber
of Commerce President Court Lantaff September
4 at 10 a.m. at the Stranahan House in the formal
presentation of a $5,000 grant to benefit the
House's public school education program.
The presentation will include brief remarks
from both the honorable Jim Smith and Court
Lantaff. A question and answer period for the
press will also be included, and refreshments will
be served following the event. The fourth grade
class of Broward County's oldest school, Oakland
Park Elementary School, will also be present to
honor Ivy Stranahan, Broward's first
schoolteacher, and to celebrate the unveiling of
the new program.
The public school elementary program, the first
of its kind at Stranahan House, will enable
Broward County School System fourth graders to
benefit from the history and tradition of Broward
County's first settlement. The program,
consisting of a specialized tour of the House, is
designed to enhance the student's study of
history and togive them a special appreciation of
life at the turn of the century.
The program will be added to other educational
programs at Stranahan House which provide
historical tours to the area's Girl Scout troops,
camps and private schools. Aside from the Girl
Scout program which is also funded through
grants, the public school program is the only
other tour that does not require an admission fee
of $1 per child.
The Stranahan House is the oldest existing
structure in Broward County -- the original home
of Fort Lauderdale pioneers Frank and Ivy
Stranahan. The home, restored in 1984 to its 1913-
1915 appearance, is located on Las Olas
Boulevard at the Henry Kinney Tunnel on the New
