Pompano Beach

Seafood Festival
The dates for the 1988- Pompano Beach Seafood
Festival, Broward's biggest outdoor weekend street
festival, have been announced as May 14 and 15.
The setting for the Seafood Festival, now in its fourth
year, is a seaside and beach bordered three blocks where
Ail.jri,: and Pompano Beach Boulevards meet the beach.
Don Wich, Chairman of the Festival for his third
consecutive year, noted that this year's Seafood Festival
"will have far more than just fabulous seafood in a beach -
front setting. Our "Festival Art Show" has grown up,"
Wich said. This year's 100 artists have had their work pre
- juried. The art quality makes it among the best of
Florida's springtime arts and crafts show."
A new concept for the '88 event is the "Festival
Marketplace." "It's an excellent chance for Chamber
business members to showcase their products and services
to an estimated audience of 150,000 people," commented
Don Dalton, Executive Director for Tourism and Special
Events for the Pompano Beach North Broward Chamber of
Commerce, the Festival sponsor. Like Chairman Wich,
Dalton has seen the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival
mature. He promises that in 1988 "our emphasis will be on
quality. We'll have quality and great variety in seafood, in
arts and crafts, in music and entertainment and in business
marketplace."

4 Waterfront News May 1988 Letters


Editor:
I recently returned from a trip to Panama where I
became acutely aware of an overpowering sense of tension
,gripping the country.
After experiencing firsthand the tension and the
political instability in Panama, I have become increasingly
concerned about making certain our interests in the Canal
are protected.
The Panama Canal is important to the United States
for economic and military reasons. Freedom in the Western
Hemisphere may very well depend on our ability to control
the American Canal in Panama.
Panama's instability points to the need for the United
States to abrogate the Panama CanalTreaty. I opposed
the treaty in 1978. I felt it was wrong then and I believe
it's wrong now.
Since the treaty was signed ten years ago, Nicaragua's
Sandinista government has been backed by Castro, El
Salvador is under siege, and Panama is now dominated by a
dictator who reportedly has received military support and
intelligence advice from Castro.
If the situation worsens, we face the Cubanization, not
only of Panama, but of other important Central American
countries.
Even if Noriega were to leave soon, I would still urge the
United States government to abrogate the Treaty. The
fact that a drug-dealing dictator like Noriega can come to
power is a strong indication that stability and peace in
Panama and Central America, the basic rationale behind
the treaty, is a myth.
By rectifying the mistake we made when we signed away
the Canal, we can send a message to the world that Central
America is vital to our interests and we will stand by
efforts to preserve freedom as the objective of our
foreign policy.

Editor:
My fourth grade class went on a mini-dig (baggies of
soil and spoil). Their observations led them to do this
science project: "Could prehistoric Indians have used gar
oils as an insect repellent?'
WHY DID WE THIS EXPERIMENT: We did it because
we kept finding some shiny things in our samples. When
asked about them, Mrs. McKee told us they were garfish
scales. We asked about the garfish and found out that he
was hard, oily and not usually a choice to eat. So why were
there so many? After learning about and discussing how
the Indians lived, we knew that insects had to be a problem.
How did they keep the mosquitos and bugs off? Did they
use the oil from the garfish?
HOW WE DID IT: First we built 10 mosquito traps (1
trap for each team of 3) from shoe boxes with screening
over the top. We drew a line down the middle of the
screening and wrote control on one side and oil on the oth-
er. We put mosquito larvae through a trap door in the box
and sealed it up. We baked a garfish and collected the oil.
We coated the side of the screen labeled oil with the gar
oil. When the mosquitos.hatched, we counted how many
mosquitos landed on the control side and how many on the
oil side in 30 second trials. Each team did 10 trials.
WHAT WE'FOUND OUT: For all the trials, 204 mos-
quitos landed on the control side and 70 on the oil side. One
team had almost all their mosquitos land on the oil side in
the first trial. They couldn't do a second trial because all
of their mosquitos died after touching the oil. So, our con-
clusion was that the gar oil could have been used as a mos-
quito repellent. We also decided that it should be tested
on humans and against other oils and repellents.
We won a "Superior" at the Broward County Science
Fair (that is the-best that you can get) and a Special
Award.

Editor:
The basic lines of this story are true. It will be up to
you, the reader, to decide which of these two men is the
true sailor and which is sailing a lie.
Let's us start with B. Robert -----. He is a Ivy League
college man, served four years in the navy, during World
War Two, in the south Pacific. After the war, he went into
the reserves, finished school, worked his way to CEO in a
large company before he retired. He is active in the Coast
Guard Aux' and is a certified teacher of electronic
navigation. For the last 12 years he has been the
commodore of a large yacht club. He has vast sailing
experience sailing the east coast, Carib', and in the Gulf.
He is very rigid about rules, chain of command, and proper
training. If you were to ask him how to get to a place, say
from Ft. Lauderdale to Nassau, he could give you the exact
compass headings, Loran and Sat Nav programming.
Now let us look at the other guy. Lets call him Garnett.
He was born in South Africa, at age seven his family moved
to Australia where he lived until he was 24. He then moved
back to Cape Town where he got a civil service job. He
stayed there for 15 years, built a few small boats, bashed
about the Cape and taught himself to sail. He then built the
boat he still sails, and sailed around the world, finding his
way here. He married a "bilge rat" 20 years his junior, and
they are living aboard in a second class boat yard. He
makes a meager living delivering boats and doing boat
repairs when he needs the money.
Now as a "good reporter," I checked into the story of
these two men. Here is what I found. Yes, B. Robert did
go to a fine college, the best daddy's money could get. And
yes, during WW II he did spend four years in the south
Pacific, as a public relations officer in New Zealand. The
closest he came to combat was in the local bars. As for his
post war sailing experience, it does check out: he is a fine
day-sailor and will cross the stream anytime the weather is
excellent.
Getting back to Garnett, he was born in S.A. and he
did live in Australia until he was 24. I found out that during
ages 17-24, he worked as a crewman on one of those
lifesaving rowboats. In fact.. he is credited with saving
tour people on his own. When asked about this, Garnett
denied any knowledge of it and warned me that if I
persisted in these "vicious rumors" he would hire an
attorney to sue me for slander in order to protect his good
name. I found out that his civil service job back in S.A.
meant that he was a police officer. When he built his boat,
he did all the work himself, over four years it took him. The
engine is a Gardner which he salvaged and rebuilt from a
sunken fishing boat. When he sailed around the world he
stopped at 32 ports along the way before he found himself
here.
If you were to ask Garnett the same question, how to
get from Ft. Lauderdale to.Nassau, he would tell you to sail
east until you see Bimini then head southeast until you see
Nassau. If you miss Nassau, don't worry as you should see
Eleuthera or West End realize your mistake and turn
around. If by chance you-miss West End, still not to worry
as you will come up on the west coast of Africa. Then you
can turn around and maybe you will see Nassau on your
return trip. Funny answer you say, well that same man has
over 100,000 miles under his keel and still has yet to invest
in any electronic nav' aids.
I also found out these two men of the sea have met
before. It is because of people like him, B. Robert would
say, that you must keep your dingy locked up. But I wonder
who is fooling who. Several years ago, there was a real
nasty storm hitting the east coast. About 6:30 one evening
during a slight lull a distress call came over the radio. The
call was from a man, who with his wife and two kids, was
trying to cross from the Bahamas in a 32-foot sail boat.
The man would later explain that he was afraid he could be
delayed for several more days, and he had to get back to
his job, so that is why he tried to cross in foul weather.
It seems that the boat had run out of fuel and water
was coming in from all deck joints and the batteries were
low from trying to run the bilge pumps.

The.call was for the Coast Guard. There was no reply.
His signal was too weak. But it was picked up by B. Robert
in his waterfront condo. He immediately took charge! He
radioed the call into the Coast Guard but was told that the
weather was too rough for aircraft and the nearest cutter
was 110 miles away and would not get there until late the
next day. B. Robert relayed the message to the boat in
distress and told them that "HE" was working on it and
that he would keep them advised.
About the same time as all this was happening, Garnett
and his wife also heard the call for help. They were, at that
time, renting a dock behind the same building that our
hero, B. Robert lived in. The bilge rat looked out a port
and said to her husband that it was a lovely evening, just
perfect for a night sail. Garnett looked out and agreed. He
told her to start up the engine and he would cast off. So in
a short while, Garnett and his mate were heading out the
inlet amid Force-V winds. About an hour later they came
upon a 32-foot sailboat riding rather low in the water. As
the bilge rat nosed the bow up to the other boat, Garnett
jumped over to it. He knocked on the hatch and when a very
surprised man opened it, Garnett apologized and asked if
they had any matches! Well, the poor man and his wife plus
the two kids started to pour out their sad tale of woe. So
Garnett having nothing better to do told them that he
would help them. He waved to his wife to come around
again. He jumped back again to his boat (no, if you are
wondering, he never did invest in a safety harness) and
from his deck box he pulled out a tow rope and 150 feet of
8-ga.-2 wire with clamps on both ends to his battery and
then bypassed the voltage regulator that he made himself
from junked car parts. Then he jumped back over to the
sailboat, hooked up the cables to the weak batteries and
then hooked up the tow line. Garnett's wife then made a
wide turn and headed back to port. She also called the
Coast Guard, told him to forget about the previous call
from B. Robert as the boat was heading in.
By this time, B. Robert had called all of his sailing
buddies and they all were sitting around his radio waiting
for the commodore to act. When they heard the call from
Garnett's boat. there was a gasp then a curse from
Commodore B. Robert. He told all his buddies how stupid
that crazy South African was and how it was his Coast
Guard's job and that the Coast Guard was trained to
handle things like this, and that now the Coast Guard would
end up having to rescue two boats and six people!
But, alas, B. Robert's prediction did not come true. As
about two hours later both boats came into the dock. By
that time Garnett had the bilge pumped dry and the boat
was riding high again. As everybody got off the boats, the
man and his family thanked Garnett and his wife, but
Garnett cut them off by saying that he would love to stay
and chat, but he and his wife were late for a game of darts
down at the pub. So off they went, while B. Robert glared
at them from his penthouse window, muttering something
about how unprofessional Garnett was and how he wished
that he had had Garnett under him back in the navy. He
would show that stupid South African a thing or two.

Ask Big Al


Question:
I have a twin cabin boat, 38 feet long, with two diesel
engines. Both engines are close to the sides of the boat and
quite difficult to work on. The oil cooler line on the
starboard side blew out and the fitting is almost
impossible to turn loose. We can get a wrench on it but it is
frozen as if welded in. Any suggestions?
Howard
Answer:
I've run into those rusted or frozen fittings and they
can be a problem. Soaking them in "liquid wrench" or a
penetrating oil can help. Also, with extreme care, heat
applied around the fitting helps. If all else fails, you may
have to remove the cooler and work it out that way. My main
concern is with the design of engine installation which
forgets engines need maintenance and mechanics need
room. A

Q-
My boat has developed a thumping noise when I speed
up. It's not a pinging noise but a low pounding. The engine
is only two years old and oil has been changed with filter
changes regularly. My marina tells me it could be main
bearings. I would have to pull the engine for that job. Any
other ideas you can help me with? It could save me that job.

A-
Your marina could be right about a main making that
noise. But I would check for a loose or broken motor mount.
That would cause a thumping noise. Also a loose shaft or
universal coupling, ect. Before I would pull an engine, I
would eliminate all other possibilities and the check for
worn or loose main bearings.


My boat moves forward as I shift into forward speed;
but when I reverse it, it has a lag of a few seconds before
it reverses. What has to be done to correct this
hesitation?
Joe

A-
I would check the transmission for oil and make sure it is
clean and full. Changing the oil works wonders as dirty or
congealed oil can cause what you are describing. Look at
your prop'; an encrusted propeller cannot bite into the
water and just churns around. One other thing look at your
linkage. Does it move into a full reverse slot. Any of these
items can cause your problem.

Master plan or monster mess for waterfront neighborhoods


by M.G. Swift
One Fort Lauderdale waterfront neighborhood has
"published" their master plan and has begun implementing
it and several others are presently drafting and debating
theirs.
Riverside Park which has endured voodoo dolls and
barricades so far with more than a hint of racial overtones,
is well into its fourth month of implementing a master plan
for this community nestled between the North and South
Forks of New River.
STarpon River arid Sailboat Bend, adjacent to Riverside
Park, are currently writing masterplans for their
neighborhoods too.
All three areas suffer from large amounts of
"through-traffic" cutting through their residential
neighborhoods on narrow, two-lane streets not designed
for commuters to Fort Lauderdale's growing "downtown."
Riverside Park has already constructed barricades
strategically throughout the neighborhood to discourage
non-local traffic. Tarpon River and Sailboat Bend are still
mapping their strategies.
"You can not have weak knees and you may spend a good
deal of your time strengthening the knees of city staff
members," advises Riverside Park president, "Sonny"
Irons, to his colleagues across the river in Tarpon River and
Sailboat bend on implementing a masterplan ignoring
voodoo dolls placed on his lawn and racial tension.
"Make sure that everyone has an opportunity to
contribute to the planning ... and have time to study it
before voting on it," cautions "Bo" Bowman a fellow
resident of Riverside Park. "The city, not the civic
association, should notify the neighborhood," continued
Bowman. Though he voted for the masterplan and
continues to support it, he does not like the way the
residents association has implemented it. "Street closures
benefit a few at the cost of many... Waterfront
properties are now isolated from inland property,"
Bowman testified at a public hearing in April.
Bowman and some 500 of his neighbors petitioned city
hall to take down the barricades in Riverside Park claiming
they were dividing the neighborhood and creating worse
traffic problems than the one they were trying to solve.
The city commission sided with Irons and the barricades
will remain for a full six-month trial. The commission voted
four to one in April to see the plan through.


Commissioner Jim Naugle, within whose district
Riverside Park (and the other two neighborhoods) lies,
felt enough data would not be gathered in three months to
indicate the effects of road barricades on traffic
patterns and crime rates'lf we change now this whole
experiment has been for naught," Naugle said just before
the April vote.
Carlton Moore, a fellow city commissioner, disagreed
with Naugle and the majority of his colleagues on the
commission, observing, "Traffic has been moved from
homeowners to rentals." Moore suggested a
three-month-study of Irons' proposals and a three-month
study of a traffic plan promoted by Bowman and others.
Meanwhile in Tarpon River, residents are pondering
their own traffic plan. A committee of that neighborhood's
civic association has proposed to their neighbors the
changing of zoning in some areas toward single-family
residents and the dead-ending of current short-cuts like
the Southwest 9th Avenue to 7th Street "conduit" to the
County Courthouse, along with one-way pairings and
limiting access into Tarpon River. Authors of this plan
would not comment on the plan.
Others are petitioning their neighbors to simply block
the corner of 9th Avenue and 7th Street or closing the
Tarpon River bridge on 7th Street.
"Our area could be much improved just by the


enforcement of present zoning and traffic regulations,"
said Julia Nance, a long-time Tarpon River resident. "We
do not need another Riverside,' she warned. "The plan will
benefit only a few and cause inconvenience to the
majority."
The Tarpon River Civic Association was to have met in
late April about the masterplan.
Saiboat Bend Civic Association is recommending only
one road block at SW 15th Terrace and several
four-way stops to deter through traffic in that
neighborhood. Their proposed masterplan suggests the
widening of SW 14th Avenue from Broward Boulevard
south to the entrance of the county's school board complex
on the North Fork New River, along with the installation of
a traffic light at 14th Avenue and Broward Blvd. "for use
by the school board, city police and public works
employees."
Bob Gargano, a local waterfront realtor and 18-year
resident of southwestern Fort Lauderdale, warns against
making generalizations from one neighborhood to another;
but he does feel confident to claim that "eliminating
through-traffic would enhance the value of all the
properties" in the area, "Eight-, .ten-, fourteen- and up-
unit multi-family dwellings bring down the value of a
neighborhood, Gargano went on. "Use natural barriers
rather than metal barricades and reflectors."


Waterway speed limit may be abolished


and replaced with wake detec
The Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board is recom-
mending that the city attempt to abolish the 30-mile-per-
hour speed limit on the Intracoastal Waterway.
"It has encouraged larger boats to speed up to 30 miles
per hour creating wakes far bigger than we wanted,
stated board chairman, Arne Carlson at the body's April
meeting. Carlson pointed out that the original intent of the
speed limit was to keep down noise and wake levels, It is in
Carlson's view, doing the opposite.
In tandem with eliminating the waterway speed limit,
the board voted in April to ask City commissioners to im-
plement an ordinance that would set a maximum wake limit
of up to 15 inches. A wake detection device invented by
board member, Sonny Irons, could assist the city in enforc-


ing such a law, the marine advisory board felt.
Members of the board have been studying Irons device
and after conducting several tests found the oscillating
detector could be used by the city's marine patrol to meas-
ure the wakes of passing vessels. A 15-inch wake limit was
arrived at after the board members experimented with
several different wake heights and determined 15 inches to
be the least damaging to seawalls, yet most reasonable
maximum for all sizes of boats.
To avoid any conflict of interest, Irons said he would sell
to the city six of tis wake detectors at his cost.
The marine advisory board's recommendations will
probably be considered by the Fort Lauderdale City Com-
mission sometime in May:

Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat Show on the way in May


Home again at Bahia Mar Resort and Yachting Center
this year, the fifth annual Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat
Show is primed to give boat owners and prospective boat
buyers an opportunity to get ready for summer vacation
fun on the water. The biggest yet, the spring show May 5-
8 will feature more than 300 boats in the water and on
land, a wide variety of engines and accessories, plus equip-
ment for all types of water sports. Together they will add
up to more than $8 million, according to Kaye Pearson,
president of Yachting Promotions Inc., which manages and
produces the show owned and sponsored by the Marine In-
dustries Association of South Florida. Pearson also joins
with MIASF each fall to present the Fort Lauderdale Inter-
national Boat Show. Visitors to the spring show this
year will find a welcome improvement in the A-frame tents
which have replaced the old circus-style tents for the land
exhibits. With no interior poles or guy wires the tents fa-
cilitate traffic as well as providing more square-footage
for exhibit space. In additiorrthey are much stronger,
more stable and more resistant to inclement weather.
"This is the last chance for winter residents to buy
gear in preparation for their yachts to return north, and
the time when local boat owners take stock to see what
equipment they need to buy or replace so that they can
take advantage of South Florida's many cruising waters,"
Pearson said. "This year the spring show is doubly impor-
tant for those looking for good buys in new equipment for
their boats. The marine industry has dropped its April Ac-
cessories Month promotion, which means there will be few-
er specials offered cooperatively by manufacturers and re-

tailers. The spring show will fill that gap with many bar-
gains and discounts that are typically available."
An increase in brokerage participation will give show-
goers a wider range of choices among new and previously
owned boats in an expanded brokerage section at the north
side of Bahia Mar, he added. In addition, equipment for
nearly every type of water sport will be available including
scuba gear, water skis, surfboards, sailboards and small
boats from inflatables to canoes and kayaks. The fashion
'conscious can find a wide range of casual clothing, hats,
shoes and jewelry suitable for wear ashore or afloat.
Equally versatile are boat accessories and furnishings
which increasingly are finding their way into dens, family
rooms, patios and other areas of homes ashore as well as in
RVs. Compact, functional items are as welcome in the
kitchen as in the galley afloat. As usual, a variety of "how
to" and "what's new" clinics will be offered, many appeal-
ing to landlubbers as well as sailors. A clinic on galley cook-
ing will be conducted by Talle Hasis, a partner in family-
owned Cap's Place, a 1920's landmark island restaurant in
Lighthouse Point. Windsurfing and fishing clinics, along
with fashion shows will round out extracurricular activities.
"This wide-ranging aspect of today's boat shows has
brought in ever increasing crowds. Shows are now taking
the nature of spectaculars and drawing visitors from all
segments of the population, not just boaters," Pearson
said.
Hours for the Fort Lauderdale Spring Boat Show are
noon to 8 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and

U.S. Yacht Club

Challenge Cup
by Gemma Turi
Newport Beach, CA. Two yacht clubs not nationally
known on the racing circuit earned the distinction of being
America's best in April.
Manhasset Bay Yacht Club of Port Washington, N.Y.,
won the 1988 U.S. Yacht Club Challenge, followed closely
by Bay-Waveland Yacht Club of Bay St. Louis, Miss.
Although neither club won a single race in the five-race
series, their cumulative point totals (23 for Manhasset Bay
and 24 for Bay-Waveland) were enough to beat out the
other 10 clubs in the regatta, which is sailed in the waters
off Newport Beach, hosted by the Newport Harbor Yacht
Club.
In the fifth and final race, Manhasset Bay finished
fourth and Bay-Waveland placed fifth.

Local Merchant Marine vets


AMERICAN

A ,-ME R ,tICAN
m A 141 M


by Remy Mackoswki
What if there were an award, named for the biblical
Job, that was awarded annually for patience above and
beyond the call of duty. If this award existed, it would have
to be presented to the United States Merchant Marine --
winners in more ways than one this year.
That's because 1988 marks the end of merchant
seaman's 40 year struggle for recognition of their services
in World War II. On January 19, Congress finally bestowed
veteran status on all merchant seamen who served between
December 7,1941 and August 15, 1945.
This select group is now eligible for GI loans, widows
pensions, access to Veterans Administration hospitals,
disability benefits, the right to be buried in a national
cemetery and other privileges normally reserved for U.S.
military veterans.
But more important to most merchant seaman is the
official recognition that comes with veteran status. "We'd
rather smell the roses than have them put at our grave
sites." says Dave Block, vice president and corresponding
secretary of the local chapter of American Merchant
Marine Veterans.


"The Merchant Marines served ably and sacrificed
greatly during the war," Block says. And statistics bear
this out.
In all, 5,662 merchant seamen lost their lives or were
declared missing in action during World War II. Their
casualty rate of 2.8% was exceeded only by the 2.9%
suffered by the U.S. Marines.
A total of 733 merchant ships were sunk -- German U-
boats sank more than 145 merchant ships in only the first
three months of 1942.
"Merchant seamen transported Army and Navy cargoes
through all war zones," says Block, "and more than 7 million
U.S. soldiers went overseas on merchant ships."
But despite these obvious contributions, for four dec-
ades the Pentagon has refused Merchant Marine appeals
for veteran status. The Pentagon's rationale: merchant
seamen's service, regardless of its contribution to the Al-
lied victory, was not the same as military service.
Two other popular charges levied by challengers .to the
Merchant Marine's cause,are that the sailors were well paid
for their services and were comprised primarily of draft
dodgers. "These are myths that have long been debunked


i


I


by the facts," answers Block.
"Official documentation proves the pay of a merchant
seamen was comparable to that of military, personnel,"
Block says. "As for the draft-dodger charge, many sailors
during the war were either too old for the draft or
couldn't get into the armed forces. It was easier to avoid
combat zones by joining the service than by signing with the
Merchant Marine."
And with official recognition, the Merchant Marine has
finally achieved the measure of respect they've fought for.
"Veterans groups that fought us tenaciously on the issue
(of veteran status)," says Block, "are now asking us to join
their organization."


Boatyards protected from condo's developers


In an effort to protect its endangered boatyards, the
state of Massachusetts has enacted a program of buying
development rights from boatyard and marina owners,
paying them the difference between the value of their
property as a working boatyard and its current market
value. In return, the property cannot be converted to non-
marine use.
"This is historic legislation," said John Spillane, attor-
ney for the Massachusetts Bay Yacht Club Association.
(The owner} now knows there is another place he can go
when a condo' developer knocks on the door."
The Boatyard Preservation Act, as the program is
called, was sponsored by Rep. Larry Alexander of Marble-

head, who has seen his area lose several more facilities, in-
cluding the Ted Hood yard, to developers in the last few
years. For 1988, $2 million has been budgeted to begin
buying development rights, along with $30 million allocated
for the acquisition of coastal lands. The program is volun-
tary.
The program, Alexander said allows owners "to keep
their boatyard operations and yet be made whole economi-
cally by the state. And coastal communities will be able to
maintain their nautical and marine character." Alexander
went on, "Many boatyard owners want to remain in the ma-
rine business but financial pressures" force them to opt
for fat pay-offs from non-marine developers snatching up
"under-utilized" waterfront properties.

The Massachusetts waterfront preservation act is
modelled after a Farmland preservation program already in
that state.
Asked if such a program would work in other states
with "endangered waterfronts, Rep. Alexander speculat-
ed that it could in communities where waterfront is
threatened by non-marine related development and
where that community is dependant on the marine indus-
try economically and historically."
The program is being administrated by the state office
of Coastal Zone management within the Executive Office of
Environmental Affairs. "A Boatyard Preservation Commit-
tee composed of state officials and boatyard owners is re-
viewing applications for funding," said Alexander.

Gulfstream Sailing Clubs summer schedule
L. --4... A L -


by Sandy Aloe
The Ft. Lauderdale Gulfstream Sailing Club finished
the winter schedule with something for everyone. After an
exciting series of five winter races at Independence Bay
Lake the SUNFISH Fleet trailered their boats down to
Lime Tree Bay Resort at Islamorada in the Keys for their
annual weekend of ocean races, fun sailing, barbecues, pic-
nics, dinner and dancing under the stars.
The Cruising Fleet had an Easter Vacation Cruise to Bi-
scayne Bay with stops at Hurricane Hole and Boca Chita.
Those who didn't make the Cruise had a raft-up at Lake
Sylvia.
The Ocean Fleet Round-the-buoys racing group had a
twilight race April 9 with 16 racing and the weather per-
fect. Just picture the spinnakers full, the beach in the
background and the sun setting over Ft. Lauderdale. This
was followed by an after race social Sunday evening with
race results.
So now it is approaching summer and time to make plans
and reservations for the summer sailing events.
The Offshore-races begin with the Annual Palm Beach
Race April 23. After the race it was dinner and dancing at
the Palm Beach Sailfish Club with the Hillsboro Sailing
Club. Gulfstream will have its award dinner May 1 at the
Lauderdale Isles Yacht and Tennis Club.
The SUNFISH Fleet continues its racing schedule dur-
ing the summer with races every other week at Indepen-
dence Bay Lake. New and old members are helped with
Learn to Sail and Learn to race.
Summer is cruising and vacation time. The Cruising
Fleet is making plans for extended cruises to the Dry Tor-
tugas in May and the Abocos and the Keys in June. Two
Pre-cruise seminars will be held in May to give the members
valuable information on crossing the Gulfstream, Boat

Olympic sailing records with a different
by Tony Fairchild stand forever. It's not only a record. It's remarkable. For
in 1QAAi i, I. ,, Ann ,,,ala P,,,nid nrl hil tr M.hhnh i, 9C


Everbody in yachting knows the great Dane Paul Elv-
strom, who has won four Olympic gold medals in successive
Games.
Elvstrom won his first gold medal, sailing in a Firefly in
the 1948 Olympics -- the first to be staged after World
War II. His next three gold medals, in 1952, 1956 and
1960, were won in a Finn dinghy. All four medals were won
in singlehanded competition.
The Finn dinghy class is still sailed in the Olympics. More
remarkably, Paul Elvstrom is still racing in the Olympics.
He has already been named by Denmark for the 1988 Olym-
pic regatta, to be run in Pusan, South Korea, from Sept,
17-Oct. 2. Elvstrom will then be 60.It will be his ninth
Olympics. It will be his second in the two-man Tornado ca-
tamaran class -- as demanding in its way as the Finn single-
hander.
Elvstrom's age may not be an Olympic record. But 60 is
almost certainly a record for an Olympic yachting skipper.
It is certainly a record for a Tornado skipper. Nine Olym-
pics by one competitor is probably a record. Four gold
medals in a row and five more Olympics is certainly a
record. Indeed, it is a record in sailing in the Olympics un-
likely ever to be matched. And Paul Elvstrom can certainly
claim at least one more Olympic record -- for competing
with Trine, his daughter, as crew.
Fathers and daughters in the Olympics may not be a
record, But fathers and daughters in the yachting Olym-
pics certainly is. And the fact that Paul and Trine Elv-
strom will be 1988 be appearing in their second successive
Games in a Tornado catamaran is another record likely to

were fourth.
"When I was.asked if I would try again in 19881 laughed
and said they must be joking," joked Elvstrom. "I said I
would be 60 then. But then Trine and I won the Tornado
European championship. We were still sailing well so we de-
cided we would give the Olympics one last go." "It will be
my last," laughs Elvstrom. But will it?
He once joked that so long as he felt like sailing he would
go on sailing. He obviously still feels like sailing. He looks as

Heritage


Sailboat Bend takes

"historic" step

by M.G. Swift
A waterfront neighborhood came closer to being
designated a "historic district" with a positive vote in
April of the Fort Lauderdale City Historic Preservation
Board, according to city planner, Janet Larson.
After a tour of the Sailboat Bend area with supporters
and opponents of the plan, board members decided five to
one to recommend designating the neighborhood along the
North Fork New River a historic district to the City
Commission, Larson went on. The city's.Planning and
Zoning Board is drafting a zoning ordinance and the
Historic Preservation Board is developing criteria and
clearer definitions of historically "contributing" and
"non-contributing" structures, along with settling on
boundaries for the district.
The Historic Preservation Board will be meeting at
Fort Lauderdale City Hall, 7 p.m., May 9th, said board
chairman, Herb van Sickel. Planning and Zoning meets May
18th, he said.
Julia Jones, a resident of the area since 1911 and among
the leaders in the drive to have the area designated was
elated with the board's vote. Said she at a March public
hearing: "money isn't the only unit of worth."
The purpose of the proposal is to "promote the
cultural, economic, educational and general welfare of the
people of Sailboat Bend, the City of Fort Lauderdale and
of the public generally, through the preservation and
protection of historically or architecturally worthy
structures and properties... (which) contribute to the
overall character of the.Historic District."
The Sailboat Bend Civic Association wants to see the
historic district's boundaries extended to Southwest 2nd
Street on the North to the New River on the South, East
from Southwest 7th Avenue to Southwest 11th Avenue on
the West. The city may consider a smaller area, though, not
ruling out the neighborhood group's wishes.

Circles- Great
by James E. Sullivan
Teachers of geometry have taught us that the shortest
distance between two points is a straight line. For sailors
using the Mercator chart this is not always true. With this
chart, unless cruising north or south, the shortest distance
between two points is a curved line that represents part
of a great circle.
What are great circles, what are small circles, what is
the difference between them?
A great circle is a circle on the surface of the earth
whose plane passes through the center of the earth. All
meridians (lines of longitude) are great circles. A small cir-
cles is a circle on the surface of the earth whose plane does
not pass through the center of the earth. With the excep-
tion of the equater all parallels (lines of latitude) are small
circles.
It was the earth's great circle that gave us the nautical,
mile. How so? There are 360 degrees in a circle, each de-
gree has 60 minutes. If we multiply 360 by 60 we obtain

21,600 minutes this is the size of the earth. Each minute
becomes a nautical mile. However, because of its spinning
motion the earth is not perfectly round it is an oblate
period, fatter at the equator by some forty miles. So the
size of a minute of arc or a nautical mile varied with the lo-
cation. Finally by international agreement the nautical mile
was set at 6,076.11549 feet.
Since all meridians are great circles distance is meas-
ured on these circles. Thus the vertical scale of minutes of
latitude at the right and left side of a chart are used to
measure distances in nautical miles. On Mercator charts of
large areas the scale varies with location. Therefore, to
measure distances between two points use the latitude scale
opposite these points.
Caution great circle routes are usually sea lanes and
ships that travel these lanes may be unaware of your pres-
ence. Do not depend on your radar reflector as large ves-
sels cannot maneuver around you even when they spot your
ship on their PPI.

Mister what's an anchor?


by Jim Johnston
The time; 0914 June 20, 2010.
The place: A marina in Ft. Lauderdale.
The scene: An elderly sailor, busy cleaning the deck of his
sailing sloop, is approached by a small boy.
"Sir, that sure is a beautiful old boat, but, what is that
thing hanging on the front end."
"Well sonny, first don't say front end. The metal object
hanging from the BOW is called an anchor. You do not see
them on all boats anymore, but I still carry one for
emergency use. If I dared to drop it in the water I would
soon be surrounded by police boats and given a heavy fine.
Sonny, if you have some time to spare, come aboard and I
will tell you about the decline of the anchor.
"Once upon a time, long, long ago, the anchor was
associated closely with the thrill of cruising and they were
carried by all boats. Cruising continued to be one of the
great pleasures of life late into the last century. Now, like
Scarlet O'Hara's Tara, cruising is gone with the wind,
never to return to us again. I can remember when you could
get on your boat, go cruising on the ocean, lakes or inland
waterways and at the end of the day find a nice little cove
in the wilderness or drop your anchor in a town harbour. It
made no difference where because we were welcome
anywhere. Townspeople loved to look from their windows
at groups of boats anchored in the bay. They were a
natural part of the scenery like the water and the trees.
Everybody agreed that private property ended at the
waterline, the water itself was free space like the air and
the sky to be enjoyed by all.
"This spirit of friendship and cooperation changed as
the shoreline changed. Big money people started buying up
the waterfront for expensive homes, condos and hotels and.
lined the shore with expensive yachts. A few of the new
breed of owners were sailors in the true sense of the word
but most were not. For most the boat was not for cruising,
but merely as a status symbol dock ornament. Thus, there
developed two conflicting types of boat people. Many
property owners developed a resentment toward cruising
sailors traveling through who dared to drop their anchor in
"our private waterway". Legally, they only owned property
to the waterline but in their hearts they owned all of the
water that they could see from their doorway. Sometimes


one would see garbage being tossed over the side of a
boat. The unfair conclusion was that all boat people are
slobs; the majority of us suffered the actions of a
thoughtless few. Some property owners would look out at
a group of boats anchored or docked and in their mind see
huge amounts of raw sewage contaminating the waterways.
This was not always so but-it was one of the problems we
could have handled better than we did. Collectively, they
found a way to solve their problems through political
pressures. Many municipal officials called themselves
sailors, most were not. Anyhow, they found it expedient to
go with the ideas of their friends and neighbors who had
elected them. To hell with the rights of sailors traveling
through, they do not even vote here. The trend toward
increasing numbers of ordinances restricting boating
rights never stopped.
"I well remember my first encounter with the marine
law. I had engine trouble in Ft. Lauderdale and anchored
off the channel to work on it. A police boat came alongside
and threatened a ticket if I did not move it on immediately.
In the process, I learned to my surprise that in this entire
city, touted as the Venice of America, there was only one
tiny spot where you could legally anchor, even in an
emergency. This struck me as a horrible contradiction of
ideas. I then found out that a friend of mine had the same
type of experience in Miami. Neither of us were particularly
alarmed, so what if you cannot anchor in Ft. Lauderdale or
Miami, there were plenty of other places. Little did we
know what could happen in twenty years; we should have
been alarmed.
"In the 70's a favorite spot for many of us was a pretty
S little cove just north of Hollywood. We spent many happy
days here where you could dinghy ashore and picnic in a
lovely grove of trees or walk over to the beach. One day we
were shocked to read that anchoring was now illegal
anywhere in the city limits of Hollywood. During the next
ten years the politicians of Ft. Lauderdale stayed busy
passing laws making boat ownership less enjoyable and
liveaboard became a dirty word. I suspect sometimes that
their standard became, "if it makes owning a boat less
enjoyable, it is a good law". In the 80's there was still one
good place in our area we could go individually or in groups
and enjoy life, No Name Harbour on the south tip of Key


Biscayne. This was a pretty little harbour accommodating
forty or fifty boats at anchor in the middle of a state
park. I stopped in here on the way back from a trip to the
Keys in February, 1988 and was greeted with a new sign
that anchoring fees were now being charged. It now cost
$11.40 per night to anchor in a state park where visitors
could still enter through the front gate for 500. I knew
this was the beginning of the end.
During the next ten years, one by one, all of my old
anchoring holes were closed down either by local or state
law changes. Now, there is hardly any place that is legal to
anchor between Norfolk and Key West.
Looking back, I try to think about what we might have
done to change the death of cruising. For one thing, back in
the 60s or 70s why didn't cruising boaters form an
organization that would have given us a collective voice?
Another thing among the specifics, why didn't we-
voluntarily solve the head sanitation problem earlier? The
boat I used during the 80's had a holding tank that took
care of the problem for a few days but eventually it had to
be emptied. On my boat I could with my own system empty
my holding tank over the sea wall into a sewage outlet. The
problem was; no sewage outlets by the seawall at most
private docks, most public marinas and not even docks
operated by the city of Ft. Lauderdale.
"Oh yes, we started out with a question; what is an
anchor used for? Well, I guess nothing anymore. It is just a
symbol of happier days."

Lauderdale's "Rookie of the Year" shoots for repeat


in Marathon
by Sharon Settler
Marathon, Florida Keys Last April 24, John Antonelli
gathered family and friends on the Faro Blanco Marina
docks in Marathon to christen his new brilliant red Cougar
38-foot catamaran, Spirit of America.
Twenty-four hours later the newcomer on the Open
Class Power Boat Racing circuit had finished first with an
average speed of 100.429 miles per hour. Antonelli was
the fourth racer in Offshore Racing history to break the
100-mph course average.
Despite the outstanding performance delivered by
Driver-Owner Antonelli and Throttleman Hurley Stepp at
the 1987 Marathon Offshore Challenge, the spirit of
rejoicing was cut short by a protest alleging that Spirit of
America, as well as two other Open Class boats had gone
through a spectator fleet.
At first, the three leaders were disqualified by the
chief referee. But following further discussion the three
boats were assessed a ten-minute penalty which placed
Spirit of America second. The official winner at the point
became Team Apache who had averaged only 95.189 mph.
"It was unbelievable." Antonelli said. "I was in shock
because I knew we hadn't committed an infraction."
But Antonelli accepted the final race-site decision and
set out to prepare for the remainder of the season.
Less than a week following the race Antonelli received a
telephone call at his Ft. Lauderdale home from a spectator
who had video footage of portions of the race. The boat
from which he viewed and shot footage was near the
location where race officials had ruled the three boats had
gone through the spectator fleet.
The footage showed the opposite-the spectator fleet
had drifted onto the race course.
Antonelli appealed the decision reached at Marathon
when the Offshore Racing Commission met at Cape Coral,
Florida on May 13. The decision was reversed after the
evidence was presented and Spirit was declared the
official winner of the Offshore Challenge.


Spirit went on to finish second in high points on the
national circuit and Antonelli was named Open Class
"Rookie of the Year."

Antonelli returns to the 1988 edition of the Marathon
Offshore Challenge on April 30 with the same bright red
boat but equipped with new power plants and a surprise or
two.
He's switched to two 750-hp Kramer engines with
Arneson Surface Drives.
"We found that our previous engines were
mismatched," Antonelli said. We've gone to the new engines
because they correlate perfectly.


"And sometime during the first few races... possibly at
Marathon, we'll introduce a surprise that will add 100 hp to
each engine and it will still conform to competition
specifications."
Another surprise in Marathon will be a new throttleman.
Antonelli isn't giving hints who he (or she) will be, but he's
going all out to wrestle away the Open Class national
championship from Bob Kaiser and his ACR Sytstems.
"We have identical boats," he said. "Except we're
(Spirit) running surface drives which gives us a 3-5 mile
per hour advantage and when we introduce our surprise,
well...all I can say is that the spirit of competition is what
this sport is all about."

returns to the Florida Keys, Saturday, April 30 for the
premiere national race of the 1988 season at the Marathon
Offshore Challenge.
The nationally sanctioned APBA (American Power
Boat Association) race takes the high speed boats close to
the old Seven Mile Bridge where there's no admission
charge to view the action.
"The race has quickly become one of the premiere
events on the Offshore calendar," said John Carbonell,
race director for the sponsoring Conch Republic Offshore
Power Boat Racing Association (CROPBRA), "The
racers, crews and their families enjoy themselves and we
attract thousands of people to view the action,
"For this year's Challenge we anticipate more
participants, superb offshore action and many more fans."
Five different classes of boats Superboat, Open,
Modified, Pro stock and Stock plan to compete and
Carbonell expects a minimum of 55 race boats to register
for the event.
Boats will line up for the noon start opposite Faro
Blanco Marine Resort and race westward paralleling the
old Seven Mile Bridge for approximately three miles. At
Moser Channel racers will turn hard port (left) and head
through the old and new bridges southeast to Sombrero
Light, then northeast to checkpoints near Key Colony
Beach turning around, heading to the bridges and through
to the start line for more laps. The 149 mile race (for
classes Super, Open and Modified) will take racers around
the course four times.

Sea turtle tears

by Chris Feeley
FORT LAUDERDALE -- The Discovery
Center presents "Sea Turtle Tears," a
fascinating look at the world of the endangered
sea turtle, through June 12. 6
This original traveling exhibit, developed by the
Discovery Center, features 27 works of South Florida
photographer Lynn Sage and Dr. Peter Pritchard, a world
renowned authority on turtle genre and author of the
"Encyclopedia of Turtles."
Visitors will find out what causes a mother sea turtle to
cry and will be able to lead a baby sea turtle safely to the
ocean by participating in a game call "A-maze-ing Turtles."
Visitors will also be able to examine the museum's turtle
inhabitants, including the endangered Loggerhead, Green
and Leatherback hatchlings.
Woody .Wilkes, the Discovery Center's curator of
natural sciences, organized this unique exhibit, which
reflects the museum's management of the Broward County
Sea Turtle Conservation Project. Under Wilkes' direction
117,000 turtle eggs were successfully moved to safety in
1987.
The Discovery Center is located at 231 Second Avenue
Son New River.

SEditor's note: Nova University and its researcher John
Fletemeyer have been selected to run Broward County's
sea turtle protection program on that county's beaches
this coming summer. The county's Environmental Quality
Control Board chose Nova over last year's caretaker,the
Discovery Center, a hands-on children's science museum on
the New River in Fort Lauderdale. Fletemeyer founded the
county's turtle program in 1978 and ran it for nine years
until the state awarded last year's contract to the Discov-
ery Center and their project head, Sherwood Wilkes.

musician from Connecticut and part of the Week of the
Ocean Outreach Program.

Lake Wyman Park expansion opens in May


by Craig Lustgarten
Nestled behind the bustling 5th Avenue Shops of Boca
Raton is a park that has quietly undergone the first phase
of a major transformation.
Lake Wyman Park opens this month with a whole new ar-
ray of waterfront features, including a beautiful board-
walk that traverses acres of mangroves, an extensive chil-
dren's playground, two major picnic shelters on the water's
edge as well as expanded grill areas adjacent to the board-
walk, and increased parking and public facilities.
There is also a new access road into the park that has
been landscaped with many varieties of trees and bushes.
The 54-acre park, located on the west side of the In-
tracoastal, is scheduled to go through two more phases of
expansion before it is finished. The next phase of the pro-
ject involves expanding the boardwalk system northward
into the mangroves. A system of canoe trails is going to be
dug out in the mangroves so that they can be used for rec-
reational boating and canoeing. Access to these trails will
be available from canoe launching areas that will be con-
structed.
The last phase of the project will focus on construction
of a public dockage area, new boat ramps, day-use dock-
age, and a snack bar/tackle shop facility.
Grant Thornbrough, planner and landscape architect
for the Lake Wyman Park expansion, said, 'This gives area
residents a really nice waterfront park with access to na-
ture areas; a boardwalk system, and places to go fishing.
It is a much needed expansion of the existing park in terms
of picnicking areas."
Thornbrough added, "The waterfront aspects of Lake
Wyman Park are very nice the views are fabulous and this
will be one of the most scenic areas on Boca's intracoastal."
Mary Alice Underwood, a Delray resident who was in-
vestigating the new park stated,"This is the first time I've
been down here. It's real pretty and it's going to be really
magnificent when its finished we're even thinking about
bringing our boat down here to go water skiing."
Another area resident mentioned that the fishing in the
lake is pretty good here, especially for catching mullet,

shark, snook, and barracuda.
A Boca Raton resident who has been working on the ex-
panded Park's irrigation system said he likes the new Lake
Wyman Park and doesn't mind his tax dollars being spent
on a project that counteracts South Florida's concrete
sprawl and which gives families and kids a place to go to
spend the day.


SORC winners
Ray Demere of Savannah, Georgia, sailed My Fair Lady,
a John Stone designed 35 foot sloop, to first place
overall in the International Measurement System (IMS)
class of the eight race Southern Ocean Racing Conference,
which finished in Nassau, Bahamas in late March.
Clive Walsh from Grosse Points, Michigan, won the
Nassau Cup race. While his Frere 45, Lunatic, won this
last race, his overall point total was not enough to
overcome My Fair Lady's lead.
Joe Reaves of Houston, Texas was the overall winner of
the International Ocean Racing (IOR) class, on his Kaufman
47 Elusive; and Bob Schwartz from Islip, New York, won
the Performance Handicap Racing Formula (PHRF) class
on his Petersen 48, Diane.
Brigadoon V, of Newport, Rhode Island, sailed by
Robert Morton and Perry Harris, won the first ever
presentation of the Audi Quattro Award.The award was
based on the overall point total following the completion of
the first four races in U.S. waters.
Co skippered by Perry Harris and Rob Morton of
Newport, Rhode Island, the yacht has been sailing in the
IMS (International Measurement System) Class of the
S.O.R.C. Brigadoon V also won its class at Race Week in
Key West, Florida in January. Atrophy especially designed
for this new award category was presented at a ceremony
held at the Coral Reef Yacht Club in Miami.
Designed by German Frers of Argentina, the boat was
built in Newport, Rhode Island especially for the IMS class,
a new class added to the S.O.R.C. in 1987.

20 Waterfront News May 1988 Fishing


Yacht brokers and boat owners treat Kids in Distress today on the water


Picture a middle aged man who one might normally find
making multi-million dollar business deals. Now picture him
laughing merrily on a beautiful South Florida Saturday af-
ternoon having a grand old time. Why? He had thrilled a
half dozen youngsters by taking them out on his 48-foot
Viking cabin cruiser My Sue for the day.
This particular man was Joe Armbruster, local inventor
and licenser of automotive and consumer products. He,
along with employees of Richard Bertram & Co. Yachts
and others did a great deal of charity April 16.
John Weller and Eric Ranspaugh from Bertram cap-
tioned two yachts to Tugboat Annie's, a Dania restaurant
on the water, as they hosted ten children from Kids in Dis-
tressto a lunch cruise on the ocean and the Intracoastal
Waterway. The children are all victims of physical or sexual
abuse who live in a shelter while waiting to be placed per-
manently in foster homes or with adopting parents.
At lunch, an overjoyed Armbruster talked about the
trip: "I'd say turn hard left or right and those super little
kids would do it right every time, then they'd clap for each
other. They loved it ... not one got sick and they all wanted
to come back." Armbruster picked up half the bill at the
restaurant to boot.
Weller, 43, and Ranspaugh, 39, have self-proclaimed
soft spots for abused kids, each having their own families
as well. And all it takes, according to Ranspaugh, to cap-
tain the tykes is, nerves of steel," (He was joking, in all
honesty.)
Most of the children aged 4 to 9, had never been on a
boat before, let alone a luxurious yacht. It took them awhile
just to survey it. They could not be named or directly pho-
tographed because of the delicateness of their legal stand-
ing..They were well tended by the staff of the Wilton Man-
ors Shelter.
A 9-year-old boy who asked to be called John said of the
Bertram Foolish Frog Too:
"This boat is fast, it's neat, and its awe-
some...Awesome... I do indeed like this boat. (Smiling) It's
very splashy!"
"Mark" agreed, saying it could hold a pretty good game
of cops and robbers on.its many levels.
But on the serious side, staff therapist Nancy Tanner
pointed out the main thrust of this type of "therapy":
.. "shows the-kids that.there are.good people in this
; world that love them and think highly enough of them to
make this:kind of day for them. It increases their self-

esteem immeasurably."
One boy, only 4-years old, simply and bravely clung to
the side of the boat, face in the spray and eyes filled with
wonder. That one look had to do John Weller proud of the
whole charity effort he has championed for the last nine
years. The Yachtbrokers for Kids in Distress is a most re-
cent program, (this was only the second trip, John said),
the big event is the annual Big Brothers and Big Sisters of
Broward County Fishing Tournament. Weller has run the
tournament since its inception eight years ago.
Weller, a modest man who likes to downplay things, was
in a foster home for one year growing up in New York City.
He said, "we just like to get the kids out."
For the fishing tournament, Weller called on others to
donate their time and boats so there can be room for the
Big Brothers and Sisters.to participate. Weller especially
calls on members of the boat brokerage community for sup-
port of these causes.


522-5789


The tournament is Saturday, June 11th, from 10:00
A.M. to 3:00 P.M. It begins at Bahia Mar Slip H, and a
barbecue lunch is provided by the hotel on their patio. Tro-
phies will be given to the biggest, smallest, and most
catches hauled in by a team. Also, T-shirts are printed and
distributed free to all the participants.
Weller says there will be three pairs of big and little
Brothers/Sisters per boat, and that more donor boats
are needed. He added that in nine years there has never
been a problem such as equipment damage or organizing.
Also, 80 percent of the participants are repeat donors like
Mr. Armbruster. He has donated his-boat for all of the
previous toumaments and loved it, he said.
Weller said that about 25 boats are used every year,
but the more donated the better it is for the tournament.
There is no shortage of possible participants and John is
quick to remind possible donors: "the owners get more out
of it than the kids do."

The winners of the Captains Trophies for 1987 have
been announced by the National Marine Fisheries Service's
(NMFS) Cooperative Game Fish Tagging Program. The
program involves anglers who tag and release game fish
back into the water. When a fish is recaptured, the tag is
removed and sent to the NMFS Southeast Fisheries Center
in Miami with information on the fish's weight, length, and
the location and date it was caught. Over 100,000 game
fish have been tagged and released and almost 5,700 re-
captured by American and foreign recreational and com-
mercial fishermen since the program began in 1954.
The sailfish trophy, sponsored by the Sport Fishing In-
stitute, was won by Brad Simonds of Islamorada, Florida.
Simonds is captain of the fishing vessel "Miss Guided". He
tagged and released 155 sailfish, mostly off Cancun, Mexi-
co.
The white marlin trophy, sponsored by the Billfish
Foundation, was won by Captain Dan Timmons of Fort Lau-
derdale, Florida. Captain Timmons, who operates the
"Beastmaster", tagged and released 44 white marlin.

Barrett, Point Pleasant, New Jersey. Barrett, senior edi-
tor of "The Fisherman", tagged and released 26 yellowfin
and bigeye tuna.
The king mackerel trohpy was won by Captain Mark
Puryear of Humble, Texas. Puryear tagged and released
59 king mackerel off the coast of Texas. This trophy was
sponsored by the Florida League of Anglers.
The award to the commercial longline captain who
tagged and released the most fish went to Captain Wade
Bailey, a former charterboat captain, presently owner and
captain of the tuna longliner "Heavy Set'. Bailey tagged
and released 144 billfish and tunas. This award is spon-
sored by the Cooperative Game Fish Tagging Program.
The NMFS congratulates the winners of the 1987 tro-
phies. "Fishermen are the most important component of
the program," according to Ed Scott, fishery biologist
and project manager. 'We would like to thank everyone who

participated with the project by tagging and releasing
their fish. This cooperative effort by anglers and fishery
scientists provides valuable information on the biology and
dynamics of game fish populations in the Atlantic Ocean,
Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean. Without the help of the
fishermen, we wouldn't be able to conduct these investiga-
tions which lead to sound conservation recommendations."
NMFS is an agency of the U.S. Department of Com-
merce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Outboard club donates docks
Three finger piers have been built and donated to the
City of Miami by the Miami Outboard Club (MOC). The 40-
foot long by 5-foot wide docks are about 80 feet apart
from each other-on Watson Island next to MOC's own facili-
ties on Biscayne Bay, according to Emie Just, a member of
the club. MOC has a 40-slip marina there.
The piers were dedicated and formally given over to the
city in an April 9th ceremony on Watson Island by MOC
commodore, Jose Luis. The city had removed some old
piers from the same site near one of the only free boat
ramps in the areas, said Just.
The MOC has around 450 members and meets weekly at
the group's clubhouse on the island, Just said of the pri-
vate boating organization.

Mighty Kite flight to fill the skies
by Barbara Singer


Hundreds of kites in every size, shape and color will fill
the skies at the 2nd Annual Mighty Kite Flight for the
benefit of the Diabetes Research Institute at the
University of Miami School of Medicine, scheduled for
Sunday, May 1st. Participants are invited to join the
competition on the beach adjacent to SeaFair (Dania Beach
Boulevard and A1A). Registration begins at noon, with
official Mighty Kite Flight T-Shirts to the first 100
entrants.
Imagination, skill and endurance will all be on display as
kites and flyers compete in such categories as best
home-made kite, most beautiful, longest tail, oldest flyer,
youngest flyer, just to name a few. Entry fee is $5.00 per
kite. The afternoon holds great entertainment for the
non-flying crowd too. In addition to watching the flyers vie
for prizes, Peter Powell Kites will give a demonstration of
stunt kites that's guaranteed to thrill onlookers. Radio
personalities Skip Herman and Jim McBean will be on hand
to provide music and humorous "play-by-play" commentary,
and a local kite store will have an "on-site, kite hospital".
Refreshments will be sold, and kites are available for
spontaneous fliers.
Event organizers look forward to raising significant
funds for diabetes research. "The sky's the limit," an
event organizer declared.

Aircraft carrier to visit

Port Everglades

by Kristen Andersen
PORT EVERGLADES--- Commanding Officer Hugh D.
Wisely of the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67) has
extended an invitation to the public to visit the aircraft
carrier at Port Everglades on Sunday, May 1, and Monday,
May 2, from noon to 5 p.m. both days.
The 1,072 ft. vessel is scheduled to arrive Saturday,
April 30, with a full airwing of 75-80 aircraft on board
and a crew of 5,100 men. There will be no public tours on
the arrival day- Sunday and Monday will be the only two
days for escorted tours.
Commissioned in May of 1967, the USS John F.
Kennedy has won several naval awards including the
Battenburg Cup for being the overall "Best" ship in the
Atlantic Fleet, and the Department of Defense (DOD)
Phoenix Award, signifying a level of maintenance excellence
above all other DOD components worldwide. The carrier
has also received five Golden Anchor retention awards,
four Golden Mike Public Information Awards, and several
Battle "E" awards for her Deck, Navigation,
.Communication and Engineering Departments.
The Kennedy has been busy since her last visit to Port
Everglades in March, '86. One exciting event was serving
as a centerpiece in the International Naval Review honoring
the 100th Anniversary/Rededication of the Statue of
Liberty and hosting President and Mrs. Reagan during the
review.
The Kennedy also spent six months in the Mediterranean
conducting operations with allies. In response to a
deteriorating situation in the Middle East, the USS
Kennedy's deployment was extended and she took station
off the coast of Lebanon until tensions subsided.
This will be the Kennedy's third visit to Port
Everglades. The carrier will be dockside at Berth 24 &
25, and is scheduled for a Tuesday, May 2 departure.

AN OPEN LETTER TO OUR
SEAFARING ADVENTURERS
From John Pettit, U.S. Yacht Paint Company
Ahoy! Won't you welcome us aboard for a visit. We think we know
you, for we've spent years designing paints for your vessels,
large and. small. We've personally met many of you, and been
rewarded by your friendship.
Now,. we're beginning a new effort to acquaint you Florida
seafarers with our marine paints. We think you'll like them.
They're quite good, as good as we can make them.
We are proud of our credentials (as you are of yours): My great
uncle started Woolsey, where my father learned the paint
business. He, in turn, started Pettit Paint, where I also learned
the trade. I started U.S. Yacht, where my son makes marine paint
too. We've been with you for a long time.
Now, we want you Florida seafarers to know us better. When your
yard or dealer offers U.S. Yacht Paint, please give us a try. You'll
be glad you did. We will too.
Good Sailing,



We refer you to:
