I read Bryan Brooks' story about U-Boats ("Dive
back in time", page 23, November 1987). We had a
neighbor in Tomo River, New Jersey who was an
oil tanker captain during World War Two. His
name was Captain Paulsen. He told us many hair
raising stories of that time. My memory is hazy
about then now; but, I do remember that he said
the U-Boats would lay off shore (the east coast) at
night and watch against the shore lights for the
lights to "blink" as a ship went by. Yes, the lights
were supposed to be off, but not all were. That
was one way they would spot the ships,, and
tankers were prized targets. Captain Paulsen died
in the early 1970's, or I would put you and Mr.
Brooks in contact with him. He told us these
stories in the early 60's. His ship was fired upon
and hit several times Dut not sunk.
By the way, if you are interested-there were
German prisoner-of-war camps near Omaha,
Good luck with your search for the U-Boat off
Fort Lauderdale- maybe this article will bring a
story out of the woodwork!
This is in reference to the approved Fort
Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport
expansion plan (alternate "B"). Of interest to
boaters is the 199-foot westerly extension of the
south runway (9 Right) Which forces relocation of
The Dania Canal. The proposed configuration
creates a dog leg with two.blind corners. We have
joked about this and asked in public hearing if
perhaps they (the planners) had subdivision
consultants do the design work as the results
look much more like a street than a navigable
waterway. Another individual quipped that he
could not find the stop lights in the budget that
would be required to stop collisions at the
In any case, despite assurances to the contrary
from the aviation department, there is not
sufficient land now owned by the airport to
accomplish the relocation with practical curves.
At the very least they must purchase the rear of
The Village Marina property and even with that
additional space the canal relocation may still
result in a mess.
Citizens Against Runway Expansion (C.A.R.E.)
has suggested on more than one occasion that if
you must. lengthen the south runway, do not
extend it to the west. Be satisfied with a 5800 ft.
runway and the eastern extension instead of a
6000 ft. runway. But the.airport expansion
enthusiasts are insatiable. More is better at any
I believe the proposed canal relocation is a
clear hazard to navigation and should never be
permitted on those grounds alone, but there is
more. The sharp corners are a-hydrological
disaster! The banks will be scoured severely,
rapid silt-up will occur and these sharp corners
will jeopardize the ability of The Dania Cut-Off
Canal to rapidly run off water in the event of a wet
hurricane. We might remember that fact as that is
why the canal was originally dug.

CLIP & KEEP ABOAI
I suggest you visit the area yourself. The
proposed western relocation boundary is the wire
fence at The Airport Hilton. The area can easily be
accessed by very small boat. Note the width of the
canal (it's none too wide for weekend traffic now),
and imagine bending into and out of the corner of
that property without involving The Village
I believe the boaters of Broward County should
be made aware of this ill conceived plan. The loop
around New River and down The Dania Canal was
once a popular tour-boat trip and now is enjoyed
by thousands of local and visiting boaters. It is
unique in Southern Florida in that it provides a
true loop cruise. Let's not let The Broward County
Aviation Department mess it up.
We are backing The "Dania" Plan which tells the
airport to segregate commercial jets to the north
runway and general aviation to the south runway.

Ask Big Al
I go fishing quite frequently and when I anchor
for a short while I have a lot of trouble starting my
engine. I have V8 Ford block. If I stay for awhile I
can start right up. My buddies tell me my engine
has to cool down to start. This is something new
and I don't think the engine is that hot. My gauges
read "cool" and "normal". Any ideas?
What you describe is usually caused by one of
the carburetors. When you shut down gasoline
dribbles down the carburetor venturi tubes
wetting the plugs and they will not fire. After
awhile they dry out and you start. Next time this
happens take off the flame arrestor and check for
wetness and jet's overflowing, Usually it is'
caused by dirt or a bad needle valve or float.
Tapping the carburetor can dislodge the dirt or
.tree the needle valve. Open the throttle fully and
-turn the engine over to start by clearing the raw
gas from the carburetor. I would clean the
carburetor thoroughly, too.
Just bought a newboat with diesel engines. The
dealer's salesman was very nice but not too
helpful in, explaining maintenance and what to do
with the engines or boat. Can you help?
You did well in buying a diesel boat. They are
practically foolproof. You should have received
an engine manual with the boat. But if not, either
get one from the dealer ,or the engine
manufacturer. The main thing about diesels is:
the fuel filters must be changed or kept spotlessly
clean, the air filter should be cleaned often and
the oil filter changed regularly. Dirt or water
reaching your injectors will put you out of
business for good.
"Big Al" received several letters reacting to Al's
advice to letters in his December 1987 column.
Those letters follow along with Al's response:
I read your answer about old engines running
on unleaded fuel.
I have a pair of'Mer-cruisers in my 34 foot
Hatteras that have been running on regular fuel.
I was told that my engines must have the lead
additive or I will burn my valves up and cause
other problems. I would like your answer.
I would suggest that you re-study the answers
to a couple of the questions, to wit: "Can I use
unleaded fuel in my old engine that always used
regular, leaded fuel without causing a problem?"
Your answer directly contradicts the findings
over the past few years of the Coast Guard, oil
companies, engine manufacturers and
mechanics, etc., etc.
The second question has to do with blisters on
fiberglass boats. Do you remember Uniflite? They
are out of business because of blisters. Check
with a boat yard the cost is not "nominal" to re-
gelcoat a.boat, and it's false economy to grind
and fill them.
Dear Big Al-
One of these days "experts" such as yourself
and Rob St. Francis of The Miami Herald are going
to find themselves and their newspapers on the
short end of a lawsuit if they keep telling folks
that it's not harmful to put unleaded gasoline in
an older engine. A pre-unleaded engine will run
fine with no-lead for a long, long time but you
may rest assured that you will be paying for a
valve job long before one would normally be due.
To all the boaters who have written and called
about leaded versus unleaded gasoline for older
engines-some of these engines may require
leaded fuel for engine maintenance and
performance. If in doubt about your engine, write
to the engine manufacturer for this information or
buy a lead additive if you can not get leaded fuel.
I went into a marine store for some tools for my
boat. The prices for a tool kit floored me, wow!
When you need a tool and you find your pliers
and wrenches and screwdivers, etc., are a large
lump of rust and scale and the handles fall off and
your sockets don't fit, you will realize why marine
tools cost more!
Please send your questions to the Waterfront
,News as I cannot answer your requests on the
phone. If it is an emergency, I am at the Fort
Lauderdale Coast Guard Auxiliary docks (601
Seabreeze) on Saturdays for vessel exams and
decals from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Coast Guard Academy-receives sailboat
by M.G. Swift
The superintendent of the United States Coast
Guard Academy, in New Haven, Conn. Rear
Admiral Richard Paul Corone, accepted a cash
gift towards the purchase of a new training Laser-
class sailboat from the Fort Lauderdale chapter
of the Commodores Club of America. Admiral
Corone personally accepted the $3,000 check
from club president Ben Ross of Delray Beach at
the organization's annual Ladies Night and
Christmas Dinner in December at Crystal Lake
Country Club in Deerfield Beach.
For Corone it was a homecoming of sorts
having been in charge of the Miami district before
taking command of the Coast Guard Academy in
June of 1986.
The new training boat will bear the name
"Commodores Club of America Fort
Lauderdale", the admiral told the group of past
yacht and sailing club commodores and their
spouses. It will be used by the 80 some cadets on
the sail team. "I hope every boat we compete
against gets to read your name on the transom in
our wake," declared Corone, a 1953 graduate of
the academy himself.
Rear Admiral Corone noted that another of the
Coast Guard Academy's training vessels, the tall
ship, Eagle, will be making a port of call at Miami
in April on its way back to New Haven from
Australia. Eagle will be "down under" to help that
country celebrate its 200th year on January 26th
The Fort Lauderdale chapter of the
Commodores Club normally meets at noon on the
third Monday of each month at the Pompano
Beach Flaming Pit Restaurant on North Federal
New Customs rules for small boats
Starting last month, captains of small boats
entering South Florida from foreign countries are
required to report their arrival to the U.S.
Customs Service. Until mid December, small
vessels had 24 hours to report to the agency.,
The new reporting procedures a 60-day trial -
are part of the federal government's efforts to
stem the flow of drugs smuggled into this
country. "If someone was smuggling drugs, that
gave them a lot of time to unload the stuff, clean
the boat and then call Customs under the old
rules. They don't have that luxury now," observed
Michael Sheehan, a Customs spokesman.
Captains failing to report their arrival from a
foreign country could be fined $5,000 for a first
offense, $10,000 the second time and could lose
their vessel in either case.
Sheehan said the program is probably
permanent, however the two-month interim
period w`ll allow boat owners an opportunity to
air their opinions and concerns.
The service has installed 14 telephone lines in
the most widely used marinas between Sebastian
Inlet and Key West from which captains can
report. That number is 1-800-432-1216,
throughout the state.
"If someone is leaving and entering the country
several times a month, or is coming for the first
time, then we'll probably want an inspector to
look at the vessel." Sheehan said.
The use of small boats for drug smuggling has
increased because of added pressures applied to
air trafficking by various law enforcement
agencies. "It's like a chess match," Sheehan
explained. "The smugglers make a move and we

As a result of the Environmental Protection
Agency's action to greatly reduce,and ultimately
eliminate,the use of lead in gasoline, there are
some one and a half million 4 cycle marine
engines which were originally designed to
operate on leaded gasoline that now need a new
additive to compensate for the lubrication lost as
a result of this new reduction in gasoline lead
content. Bells Fuels of Chicago, are marketing
their product called Valvtect. This protective lead
substitute gasoline additive is specially
formulated for marine and all 4 cycle engines.
Many boaters will be relieved to know that their
engines will still tick over sweetly and not suffer
from wear on the valves, by using this product.

Liveaboard ordinances are being drafted by the
Broward County Office of General Counsel.
Assistant General Counsel David Fee hopes to
have two ordinances before the County
Commission by early 1988. An amendment to the
anti-litter ordinance should be before the
commissioners in January 1988. Zoning changes
are planned to be reviewed by the county zoning
board in February, said Fee. A more
comprehensive ordinance dealing directly with
liveaboards is expected to be drawn up later in
the year. Mr. Fee stressed that the ordinances to
be proposed would apply only to unincorporated
areas of Broward County. Fee is encouraging
feedback and can be reached at 357-7600.
The Florida Department of Transportation
(i!01) may not have to buy a 22-aCn paicdl of
waterfront property along the South Fork of New
River to complete a.106-acre conservation plan
for the PondApple Slough in Broward County. The
mitigation plan was drafted in 1986 by state and
county officials to appease environmentalists
threatening to block the nearby, Interstate 595
construction. Negotiations between DOT and a
Florida Power and Light subsidiary, the owner of
the 22-acres, have broken down. The Department
of Environmental Regulation cannot force DOT to
buy the land. FP&L wants S2.5 million plus, a
parking lease under the 1-595 overpass, an eight
year lease for a dirt stockpile on the property and
various deed warranties. The state says the land
is worth only$1.5 million and can't fulfill the
property owner's other.conditions. Talks are
continuing, according to DOT negotiator Kathy
Local environmentalists are outraged. "We
saved (DOT) S100 million and now they're
quibbling about S1 million of buffer." commented
Sandy Kokernoot of the Environmental Coalition
of Broward County.
Broward County's McFatter Vocational School
in Davie is in the process of revamping its Boat
building curriculum and adding a Yacht Refinishing
and Repair program. Responding to a marine
industry demand for better trained entry-level
employees, the county technical school has
assembled a local boating trades advisory
committee to help draft new curricula. Larry
Wesner of Roscioli Yachting Center in Davie,
chairman of the panel, meeting in December with
committee members Marci Alson of General
Offshore Corporation, Van Snider with the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida,
Derecktor-Gunnell's Bill Gerhart and John Ziegler
of Waterfront News to begin drafting guidelines
for the new marine program. Also in the
committee are Fort Lauderdale's city dockmaster
Hilton Brown and Ralph Brown of Dusky Marine.
The committee plans to survey the local boating
industry to assess it's employment needs.
Preliminary plans indicate the formation of a core
introductory to marine trades course followed by
an array of specialty instruction classes in
various disciplines such as: yacht refinishing,
marine carpentry and cabinet making, welding
and boat repair.

Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk Receives NEA Grant
by Helen Rojas
Washington, D.C. -- The National Endowment
for the Arts (NEA) will provide $40,000 for a
design plan of the proposed Riverwalk project in
Fort Lauderdale, Congressman Clay Shaw (R-FL.)
The money will be used to develop design
guidelines for a park that will stretch for over a
mile along both banks of the historic New River.
Special emphasis will be made on determining
pavement design, lighting, street furniture,
landscaping, graphics, waterfront treatment and
streetscape with a focus on public art.
Shaw and Assistant City Manager Bill Johnson
met with top NEA officials last April to gain
approval for the grant. A commitment from the
NEA demonstrates the serious artistic goals of
the Riverwalk project, Shaw said.
"Riverwalk is probably the most exciting-
project in Fort Lauderdale right now," Shaw said.
"It has the potential to be the art and
entertainment center of the city."
As chairman of the city's blue-ribbon bond
panel, Shaw helped gain voter approval for a$7.5
million bond package for Riverwalk projects
in November 1985. The city will provide $110,000
toward the total cost of the study.
Under current plans, Riverwalk will encompass
the city's revitalized downtown and historical
district as well as the Fort Lauderdale Museum of
Art and the Discovery Center.
"This is a very unique opportunity to make art
accessible to the residents of Fort Lauderdale and
our visitors," Shaw said. "The NEA grant is a real
vote of confidence in its success."

Miami boat yard
lease up to voters
Miami voters will have to decide whether to
approve a public lease between the city and a
group of influential Miamians for a boat yard
property in Dinner Key. A March referendum will
be necessary because there were fewer than
three bids offered on the Merrill-Stevens yard.
The Miami City Commission voted in December
to accept the bid of a group headed by former
Merrill-Stevens general manager Ronald Falkey,
one-time mayoral candidate Marvin Dunn and
Miami Dolphins owner Joe Robbie, among others.
Calling themselves the Dinner Key Boatyard
Management Company, the group of investors
plans to keep the 12 1/2-acre site as a boatyard.
They plan to completely renovate the
complex, add more dock space, construct a small
restaurant and "baywalk", and establish a do-it-
yourself repair shop and mini-warehouse storage
The other proposal, from Coconut Grove
Seaport, was rejected by the city commission.
Current tenants of the property,..Merrill-
Stevens Dry Dock Company, did not subiniil a
proposal to the commission, saying the city's
requirements were so stringent that a successful
yard was nearly impossible.

12 waterfront News Volume 4 Issue 10 January 1988' Habitat
by Bryan Brooks
Recently, concern has been shown over the
bleaching of some-coral in south Florida, and
around the Caribbean. Expert opinions differ as to
what the cause truly is. Many, such as Billy'
Causey, manager of the Looe Key National
Marine Sanctuary, believe that the cause of the
corals turning white is the extreme warm water
that we've been experiencing this year.
According to a report in the Miami Herald,
temperatures have been in the upper eighty
degrees fahrenheit. This, experts like Causey, say
is the limit of their heat tolerance.
Walter Japp, a biological scientist for the
Florida Department of Natural Resources, stated
that, "There's a good possibility that corals in
Florida are being stressed already by man's
presence, such as urbanization, sediment in the
water, trace metals and so forth." Japp goes on
to relate that, "DDT residues, chlorinated
hydrocarbons from pesticides, etc., have been
found in some coral tissue in Florida."
Some concerned citizens in the south Florida
area are already thinking in terms of getting
mooring buoys placed along the second and third
reefs that run the 23 miles of coastjand in
Broward County, to relieve the stress of anchor
damage from overuse by fisherman and divers.
This new phenomenon of coral bleaching is just
one more worry over the fragile reefs along the
The problems with trying to do anything to
protect the reefs is the fact that they are
submerged, so no on except a few divers can see
them. Many of these divers are tourists from out
of town and could care less about Florida reefs.
Many of the local divers who live here aren't
educated enough to realize what's going on, or

Another factor standing in the way of
protecting the reefs, are the academics who tell
people that there are no coral reefs north of
Fowey Rock off Miami.
It's a confusing issue since they are at least
partly right. Marine geologist Bill Raymond from
Fort Lauderdale explains: "The reef system or
tracts that lie offshore in Broward and Palm
Beach counties are the remains of a dead coral
system that existed over ten thousand years ago
during the last ice age. At that time it was a
pristine coral reef. When the ice age was ending
and the oceans of the world began to rise, for
some unknown reason, these corals died. What

On these limestone bases grew soft coral, such
as sea fans, sea whips and gorgonians. These
plus the many different sponges, attracted all of
the same species of fish that are found in the
Caribbean, on the so-called pristine hard coral

brain coral, stag horn coral, elliptical coral and
even some pillar coral can also be found on these
Citizen groups, such as: Audubon of Broward
County, Week of the Ocean and concerned diver
and fishing groups would like some type of
protection afforded the stressed reefs. All
attempts in the past to bring some type of
sanctuary protection have been fought by the
very powerful commercial fishing organization
known as the Organization of Florida Fishermen,
The commercial fishermen resist any type of
governmental intervention into the coastal
waters where reefs and fish are concerned.
Recently when the Dade County Government's
artificial reef group asked for federal protection
of the wrecks dropped outside state waters, the
commercial fishing lobby was able to convince
the federal regulatory body with jurisdiction to
turn them down.
Dade County's concern was that they had
dropped the wrecks as artificial reefs to draw
more fish for the divers and sportfishermen. They
wanted to regulate the commercial fishermen's
ability to drop their fish traps near the wrecks.
Dade County felt that by letting the commercial
fishermen trap the-fish drawn to the wreck, it
defeated the very purpose the wrecks were
dropped in the first place. Florida la-Wprohibits

an artificial reef expected to attract sport divers

On Saturday, November 21, the 95-foot steel
sailing vessel, "Pride", was sunk offshore of Fort
Lauderdale, to form the "Harbour Towne Artificial
Reef". All of the costs of this project were donated
by Harbour Towne Marina of Dania. The 40-year
old vessel was cleaned of potential pollutants by
workers at Harbour Towne and was certified by
the Coast Guard for sinking. At dawn, the "Pride"
was gently pulled away from her dock by the tug.

The artificial reef is expected to boost the
already high volume of diving and fishing in the
Upper Keys. An estimated 500,000 divers enjoyed
their sport in the area's clear waters last year.
"The wrecks will appeal to more experienced
divers and will bring more repeat divers to the
area," Frink says. "There is a degree of mystery
and romance that attracts divers perhaps to a
greater extent than the natural reefs.
"The wrecks will decrease pressure on our
fragile coral reefs."
Audie Morton, dockmaster at Harbour Towne,
stated, "Harbour Towne is thrilled to be able to
donate this reef to help the offshore environment
and at the same time give thousands of Broward's
SCUBA divers a new destination. It is only fitting
that the "Pride", who in her later years was a
charter dive boat in the Bahamas, will now again
serve divers as an artificial reef." He also added,
"Rumor has it that Tugboat Annie's Restaurant

Solo sailor follows in Columbus' wake
n ^ ~::~
It took 8,000 miles of single-handed sailing in
a 31-foot cutter to convince solo sailor Doug Peck
of Bradenton, Florida that the highly publicized
and heavily promoted National Geographic
Samana Cay "final solution" to the Columbus first
landfall furor had several serious flaws. As the
first-person to sail the route determined by the
National Geographic experts and thousands of
dollars of computer time, (published in the
November, 1986 issue of the magazine),' Peck is
the only one to have firsthand knowledge and
experience of the route others merely laid out on
charts and put into computers: "Let mother
nature push me around, not a computer!"
Peck and his ship's cat, Hooker, circled
Samana Cay several times and decided, as have
so many others familiar with those waters, that
"There's no way Columbus would have selected
such a reef-infested island, risking his ships after
34 days at sea."
In his Gooney Bird, Peck followed the
computer-plotted course of the National
Geographic, adhering faithfully on a daily basis
to the log of Columbus. The first third of his
voyage from the Canaries he had no trouble
sticking to the route, but then heavy currents
started pushing him south and he thought he
would wind up in the Turks and Caicos. But then
other currents and strong winds forced him north.
On the 34th day, when he made his final
comparison with Columbus' historic first voyage
in 1492, stopping at 2 a.m., he was some 35 miles
northeast of San Salvador, the island which
Columbus historian Samuel Eliot Morrison and so
many others, decided was where he first landed.
Had Peck continued on the route, he would have
landed at Cat Island.
Peck kept pace with the Admiral of the Ocean
Sea by a strenuous, taxing routine of constantly
adjusting sail or firing up his diesel engine,
matching the progress on a daily basis with
Columbus. And along the way he built his own
quadrant, using it to check Columbus' log. "If
Columbus had only had a Sat-Nav," lamented
Peck after he made landfall in Fort Lauderdale.
Gooney Bird was built by Peck from a bare
Southern Cross hull designed by Tom Gillman ten
years ago. No autopilot, it is sheet-to-tiller for
Peck. Solar panels give the boat's batteries a
trick charge to power the VHF radio. He may be
getting a single side band. But Doug Peck is a
"free agent" and finances his own trips, so he will
"Have to have a seaworthy boat and an
understanding wife," observed the skipper. The
retired Air Force man has a wife "with a riding
lawn mower" and two grown children on Florida's
west coast. Peck's wife sails with him
occasionally "from yacht club to yacht club", but
not the hardcore ones like this non-stop 87-day
double transatlantic completed in late November.

Emerick, "The week-long professional event tests
the skill and endurance of the world's best
windsurfers, while the concurrent amateur
festival provides a competitive, yet fun, arena for
boardsailors of all skill ranges, including
equalized as closely as possible, said Laremba.
"The concept of the 'clubracer' is one dear to
yachting tradition, and we feel that competition

sportsmen an opportunity to shine," observed

Eddie Higgins. world traveler and performer has
come back to Fort Lauderdale for the winter,
much to the delight of South Florida's jazz
audience. Since 1970,. Higgins has spent his
winters playing in some of the finest jazz clubs in
town. When l first saw him it was 1976 at Beeps, a
lounge once housed in the Quality Inn at East
Sunrise Boulevard and Federal' Highway. Not
long after that he led the house band at Bubba's.
At Bubba's he accompained some of the greatest
stars in jazz history, such as Sonny Sti.tt, Wayne
Shorter, Sarah Vaughn, Nancy Wilson, Stan Getz,
Barbara McNair the list goes on.
Born in New England, Eddie began performing
in Chicago while attending the Northwestern
University Music School. For the next 20 years he
became an integral part of the Chicago Jazz
Mainstream, playing clubs like the Brass Rail, the
Blue Note and the Cloister Inn. His longest and
most memorable gig was at the London House
where he played with Stan Getz, OscarPeterson,
Dizzy, Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley and Errol
In 1983, Eddie was invited on theSS Norway's
firstt Jazz Cruise. The ship was flat jammnin' with
greats: like Zoot Sims, Clarke Terry, Bucky

--- Merchant marine veterans seek their due
by Randolph Boyd
Promises made to American Merchant
Mariners more than 40 years ago during World
War II may finally be fulfilled if a hearing ordered
for Feb. 3 in a federal court brings the results
Judge Louis Oberdorfer of the District Court of
the District of Columbia has already ruled that
errors were made in not granting merchant
seamen veterans' status and the same benefits
under the G.I. Bill of Rights given to members of
the "armed forces."
The Gulfstream Chapter of the American
Merchant Marine Veterans (AMMV) in Ft,
Lauderdale is one of a number of groups around
the nation formed in recent years by wartime
merchant seamen in an attempt once and for all to
right wrongs and correct errors of fact now more
than four decades old.
These are the men who sailed alone and in the
convoys that delivered troops, tanks, planes,
guns, ammo, food and other war material to
battlefronts all over the world in the face of
bombs, gunfire and torpedoes. Percentagewise
they suffered a higher casualty rate than any
branch of the armed forces except the Marine
Now in their 60s, 70s, and 80s, these veteran
seamen want to dispel the myths (still surfacing)
that they were little more than mercenaries and
draft dodgers receiving excessive pay. In truth
many were overage or underage, or were 4-F after
being turned down by the "armed forces." All
were volunteers. There was no draft into the
Merchant Marine, but all merchant seamen were
subject to wartime regulations.
The myth of excessive pay has long since been

disproved by government records which show
that monetary remuneration received by
merchant seamen was little different from that of
similar ratings in the armed forces when total
benefits were figured in.
A merchant seamen paid for his own seafaring
clothing and the many other items automatically
supplied members of the armed forces. His pay
stopped when he went on leave, his ship was
sunk, or he ended up in a German or Japanese
POW camp. He received a few of the perks.
discounts and gratuities showered upon
members of the armed forces by service clubs,
businesses, and other organizations when he
During the war he served without fanfare and
when he returned home at war's end there were
no G.I. loans for home or business, or
government-paid schooling to ease his way back
into life ashore. He had no powerful veterans'
organizations such as the American Legion to
lobby for him in Washington. He still does not
march in Fourth of July or Veterans' Day Parades,
nor does he have access to veterans' hospitals or
other medical benefits.
Presidents and Generals and Admirals and
members of Congress'have freely stated that WW
II could not have been won without the Merchant
Marine. Yet few have done more than pay lip
In the middle of WW II General Dwight
Eisenhower said: "Every man in the Allied
Command is quick to express his admiration for
the loyalty, courage and fortitude of the officers
and men of the Merchant Marine. When final
victory is ours, there is no organization that will
share its credits more deservedly than the
Merchant Marine." President Franklin Roosevelt

asked Congress to grant Merchant Mariners the
same benefits under the G.I. Bill of Rights as
members of the "armed forces." Congress did
nothing then nor has it since.
In 1986 Rep. Walter Jones (D-NC) speaking as
Chairman of the House Merchant Marine and
Fisheries Committee: "There is artificial
distinction between combat service to one's
country in the Merchant Marine and combat
service in the armed forces. The Merchant Marine
in time of war acts as Naval and Military
auxiliary. Murky reasons for not recognizing
their brave service should be put aside."
Merchant seamen are now fighting to fill in
blanks in maritime history and to correct
untruths that are still being passed along by
those who have never bothered to check out the
facts. They feel that if they don't act now, soon
there will be no one left alive to set the record
straight and establish the rights of merchant
seamen in future conflicts as well as past.
The AMMV with headquarters in Cape Coral,
Florida, also has chapters in California,
Washington, New York, Arizona and
Massachusetts. Other AMMV chapters are being
formed, and other groups under other names are
active around the nation. All have the same basic
goal: long-promised recognition for their wartime
service at sea.
The Gulfstream Chapter meets at 1 P.M. on the
Third Saturday of every month in the American
Legion Hall, 4250 N.E. 5th Ave. Ft. Lauderdale.
Visitors are always welcome. For full information

Coordinated Universal Time
by James E. Sullivan WWV AND WWVH BROADCAST FORMAT
For navigators the unit for time has changed
from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Coordinated
Universal Tirpe (UTC). UTC is for all practical
purposes the same as GMT also referred to. as
zulu (Z) time. Why? In 1884; at the suggestion of
the railroads, the world was divided into twenty-
four time zones of 15 degrees of longtitude each.
Each zone differed by exactly one hour. For
brevity of communications the zones are
designated by a letter. The letter Z is reserved for
the zone containing Greenwich, England. Here in
Ft. Lauderdale our zone letter is R (Romeo). It
stands for +5. Which means that five hours is to
be added to local time (EST) to obtain GMT or UTC.
The National Bureau of Standards broadcasts
continuous UTC time signals frem high-frequency
radio stations. WWV (Boulder, Colorado) and
WWVH (Kauai, Hawaii). The radio frequencies
used include 5, 10, 15, and 20 MHz.
Voice announcements are made from WWV and
WWVH once every minute. To avoid confusion a
man's voice is used on WWV and a woman's voice
on WWVH. The WWVH time occurs
first at 15 seconds before the minute while the
WWV time occurs 7 1/2 seconds before the
minute. Though the announcements occur at
different times, the tone markers referred to are
transmitted simultaneously from both stations.
The UTC time announcements are expressed in
the 24-hour clock system beginning with 00 hours
at midnight through 12 hours at noon to 23 hours,
59 minutes just before the next midnight.
Weather information about major storms in the
Atlantic and eastern Pacific are broadcast in
voice from WWV at 8,9 and 10 minutes after each
hour, Similiar storm warnings covering the
eastern and central North Pacific are given from
WWVH at 48, 48 and 50 minutes after each hour.
There is a 400 Hz tone, which.is the musical
note "A" above middle "C", broadcast once each
hour, at two minutes past the hour on WWV and
one minute past on WWVH. This tone can be used

aim to get a meteor up in wind.
Most people have the 12-gauge gun and red
meteor flares. These at best give you only roughly
five seconds of alert. If straight up, an observer
ten miles away could see the signal. And your
second shot would probably be held even
straighter up, just as the first one dies.
II you buy the 25mm meteors you get your
money's worth in safety because they rise higher,
and are far brighter; thus seen at greater
distance, and more visible- if sunlight or poor
Best of all are the parachute flares. They are
expensive but you only need to fire one at a time
since they go way up (if aimed properly), they
descend slowly (burning maybe 25 seconds) and
lots of vessels are very likely to see it. Those are
the skippers who will call the Coast Guard. By the
way, if you are ok but fear being run down by a
large vessel you can use a warning white (I say
again White) meteor or parachute. This will help if
you have been unable to raise a vessel on VHF
The above pyi otechnics are "alerters" but once
somebody is looking for you then use your
"locators". Hand held stick-type flares burn
longer, are not visible over a horizon, but give an
approaching rescuer guidance. The bright red is
best visible at night.
Daytime only pyrotechnics are the orange
smoke, either hand held stick or floating marker.

Small historic Caribbean
isles now open to tourists
by Stuart Newman
MIAMI, Florida -- Fall and winter vacations in
the tropical Caribbean can be voyages of
discovery with a visit to the Netherlands Antilles'
tiny, historic isles of Saba and St. Eustatius.
Still unexploited as major tourist destinations,
the two islands are only minutes by air from the
popular resort of St. Maarten and offer an
opportunity to glimpse the "virgin" Caribbean
formerly known only to the most intrepid of
St. Eustatius, simply called "Statia" by the
islanders, lies just 48 miles south of St. Maarten
and played a key role in the American Revolution.
The island once served as a major base for
blockade runners who braved British guns to
supply George Washington's army and help the
U.S. win its independence. At Fort Oranje, visitors
can see the spot where the island's Dutch
populace became the first citizens of another
nation to salute the flag of the new United States
of America in 1776.
Along with exploring buildings dating to the
17th century, visitors to St. Eustatius can stroll
through a lush rain forest growing in the crater of
an extinct volcano, sample tasty local delicacies,
browse for island handicrafts, snorkel, swim or
simply wander through the picturesque
One of the Caribbean's most unusual and
strangely beautiful islands, mountainous Saba
climbs 3,000 feet almost straight up from the sea.
Its only road winds upward from the short airstrip
at Flat Point, aptly named as one of the rare level
areas on the.island, to the storybook villages of
Hell's Gate, Windwardside and St. John's then
swoops down into a valley and the capital, known
as The Bottom.
Saba sightseers can enjoy a quaint museum in
a century-old cottage, orchid forests, little
country inns and scenic mist-covered peaks. Tiny
shops feature much-prized "Saba Lace," also
known to islanders as "Spanish Work." The
intricate needlework, introduced to the island in
the 1870s, was produced by the wives and
daughters of Saba's seafaring men. It was in
worldwide demand before the economic
depression of the 1930s curtailed export and
almost caused its disappearance.
Non-stop flights are available weekly from
New York to St. Maarten with convenient inter-
island connections to St. Eustatius and Saba.

Bridge renovation and preservation project
by Jack Malloy
The Tarpon River Civic Association has entered
into a joint venture with adjacent Civic
Associations, interested private enterprises and
clubs, and the City of Ft. Lauderdale to renovate
and preserve the Marshall Bridge. The Marshall
Bridge (also known as the Seventh Avenue
Bridge) spans the New River connecting
Southwest Seventh and Fourth Avenues. The
Bridge is named in honor of William H. Marshall
who was the first Mayor of Ft. Lauderdaleand the
first State Representative from Broward County.
It was built in 1964 to replace the original bridge
that connect Seventh Avenue on both sides of
Ponils of inteius t surloundl ngI tlfi biildge are
Cooley Patch (current site of the Seventh Avenue
Boat Ramp) where the Pioneer Cooley Family was
massacred by Indians in the early 1800's and the
original Bridgetenders House (the little castle on
the south riverbank near Seventh Avenue). This
section of the river is particularly interesting
because it is within the seven square mile original
city limits and the bridge is only a "tomahawk's"
from the site where the old Fort for which the city
is named stood (strategically placed to Watch the
Indians paddling their canoes up and down the
North and South Forks of the New River).
The goal of beautifying the Marshall Bridge is
part of the City of Ft. Lauderdale's Multimillion
Dollar Riverwalk Project. This Bridge is the
western terminus of Riverwalk and connects the
proposed north and south linear parks. It is also a
highly visible major entrance way to the
downtown area and surrounding neighborhoods.
The bridge is currently in an aesthetically
* degraded state and sorely in need of attention.
This project provides the citizens of Ft.
Lauderdale with an opportunity to make this one
oni Ihe showcases of Riverwalk andl the Venice of
America. The recent face-lift performed on the
Ilhnld Avenue Bridge in downltown f I. LaLuerodlal
provides an example of how dramatic and
beautiful a bridge can be and is the model for the
project. The goal of the Marshall Bridge Project is
for the beautification to exceed that of Third

Englishman wins offshore racing crown
by Bob Black
KEY WEST, FLORIDA KEYS--Steve Curtis-of
Netley Hants, England became the first
Englishman to win the APBA Open/UIM Class I
World Championship in the history of Offshore
racing when he drove his boat Cougar to victory
in the 1987 KAZE CaRa Key West World
Championship, held November 10, 12 and 14.
In other big-boat competition, Tom Gentry of
Honolulu and his Gentry Turbo Eagle snatched the
Superboat World Champion title away from Al
Copeland of New Orleans and the Popeye's Fried
Chicken/diet Coke racing team.
A total of 23 racing teams assembled from
Italy, France, Switzerland, New Zealand, Great
Britain, Monaco and the United States, creating
the toughest competition for the Open (Class I)
World title ever seen in .this country. Sea
conditions on the final day of racing were calm on
parts of the course, allowing boats to reach up to
100 mph, but rough enough elsewhere to wreck
more than one boat and cause several injuries.
Among local racers, Craig, Barrie of'North
Miami:Beach placed fifth overall behind Curtis in
the Open Class aboard Silver Bullet. Barrie barely
missed nosing out Curtis for second place in the
final race but had to settle for third. Silver Bullet
did not finish the first race and placed sixth in the
In APBA Modified/UIM Class II competition,
Peter Hidalgo of'Opa Locka won the World
Champion title. Hidalgo stunned everyone
involved in the Championship series by beating
the entire Open class fleet in Tuesday's opener,
averaging 96.482 mph over the 90-mile course in
American Dream. Curtis averaged only 93.938
mph on Tuesday.
Stock B National Champion Joe Sorrentino Sr.
of Lauderhill Fla. came in second overall driving
Fully Involved. Sorrentino posted a 2-2-5 record.
"Rule Britannia!" Curtis cried as Cougarentered
the wet pit area after Saturday's race, stripping
off his driver's suit to display a T-shirt resembling
the British flag. He is the son of Clive Curtis, the
well-known designer of offshore racing
catamarans that carry the Cougar brand name.
The Union of International Motorboating (UIM)
scoring system made it highly improbable in
terms of mathematics, after Thursday's victory,
for anyone to beat Curtis.

The Kaze CaRa World Offshore Championship
was jointly sanctioned by the Union of
International Motorboating (UIM) and the
American Power Boat Association (APBA). APBA
Open and Modified classes are essentially the
same as UIM Class land UIM Class II respectively,
so those two classes were scored according to
The technical requirements for Superboat, Pro
Stock, Stock A and Stock B classes are laid out by
APBA. UIM does not have racing classes that
align well with these APBA classes, so they were
scored according to APBA World Championship
UIM rules score each race of the three-race
World Championship series equally, and allow no
points for boats that do not complete the race.
APBA scoring rules give Indianapolis-style points
to boats that do nottompletethe race course, and
the scale of points awarded for the third race is
heavily weighted because of the greater length of
As a result, racers in Superboat, Pro Stock,
Stock A and Stock B classes stood a better
chance of catching the point leaders in their class
by doing well in Saturday's race than did racers in
APBA Open/UIM Class I or APBA Modified/UIM
