The 'critter we love to eat
by Bryan Brooks
Yes,it's that time of year, when visions of drawn
butter, tasty white meat, and hunting in the sea, has come.
On Saturday August 6th, the Florida Crawfish, or
spiny lobster, season officially begins. As usual, there is a
two day sport season on Sunday and Monday, July 30th and
31st. But before you dive into the briny depths, take the
time to learn the rules, which are there for both your
protection, and the survival of the spiny critter so many of
us love to eat
First of all, no spear guns, hooks, or grabbing devices
are allowed. The carapace, or shell, must measure 3 inches
from between the lobster's horns atthe eyes, across the
back, to the rear edge of the top. In years past, you could
also measure the tail, and if the tail was long enough, then
the critter was yours, but that is not true any longer. Only
measurements of the carapace is now allowed.
No egg bearing females may be taken from the water,
nor can the eggs be scraped-off. The captured lobster
must be measured in the water, unlike in the past when you
could take the lobster to the surface, measure it on the
boat, then, if it was a short, throw it back in the water.
The state wisely decided this last ruling was an important
addition to safeguard the lobster. One of the reasons was
that throwing the lobster back in the water, if was a
short, almost ensured its certain death by a passing
barracuda. Many times.on commercial dive boats I have
personally taken the small lobster another diver had
mistakenly brought to the boat and dove it back down'to a
coral crevice for it to continue its life. Sounds wimpy?
The season continues on until March 31st. Many of us
feel this is too long a season, as the bugs seem to get
fewer and fewer each year.
Many sport divers feel this is because of the commercial
lobster fishermen. I'll concede this is at least partly true;
but we, as sport divers can also be a deadly predator to
the lobsters. Some of us scrape eggs off the females, so
we can bring them back to the boat This madness ensures
a decrease in the future lobster population. It also shows a
total disregard of any semblance of caring-about life on
this planet. /
Another thing we.do is to grovel around on the reef,
destroying much of the coral habitat. Much of the problem
is the lack of environmental education given during the
basic, entry-level diver training. I feel all of the
certification agencies bear a responsibility for this.
Remember the bug must be kept intact until back on the
shore. The bug limit for lobsters is six per day, or 24 per
boat. During the special two day season in July the bag
limit is six per diver per day period.
Don't grab in holes to net the lotbter This ,siiaill,
results in the diver grabbing the antennas. It can also give
the diver a nasty bite from a defensive moray eel. When
grabbing them this way, the antennas come off and the
lobster is left without an important part of its body. This
also results in a slower growth rate for the bug, if it
survives at all.
Use the tickle stick to prod it out of its hole, then use a
fish net to capture it That way, no antennas or legs are
pulled off, and the bug can safely be released, if it istoo
small, or an egg bearing female.
Enjoy the season, dive safely, and remember to keep in
mind that all of us bear a responsibility for the future of
life on our planet. :

2 Waterfront News August 1988 Letters
Ask Big Al
Can you figure this one out?
Last year when in the Keys and running at high speed my
Merc' 200 would often fall back to a rough idle. After
placing it in neutral for a short time, I could then proceed
o.k. It had done this when new (1985) and was determined
to be a bad stator. I checked the stator again, found it
was bad and replaced it Problem solved? NO!
SAfter two to three months about every fourth or fifth
time out it would again fall back to rough idle.
'1) I replaced water separating filters, squeeze bulb
and fuel hoses. Solved? NO! Again it acted up on the
fourth or fifth trip.
2) I found one hose leaking at the carburetor. Solved?
3) Found a fuel hose to tank from gunnel was
deteriorated. Why it didn't leak into the bilge is beyond
me. Replaced hose and siphoned tank to rid it of any
debris. Solved problem? NO!
4) Again, siphoned tank and found an aluminum seal
from off a bottle of oil. Now I had the culprit? NOI
5) Siphoned again and found no debris. So I changed
the copper tubing lives from the tank to filter, and made
two new fuel pickup tubes with six entry points for gas to
enter the tubes, assuming there was still some debris I had
not gotten. Problem solved? NO!
6) Found my:vent hose was crimped (obvious when
filling the tank). Solved?. NO!
I should mention my tank has two separate fuel pickup
lines and filters; yet, when I switch lines 1 still get the saln'e
problem every fourth or fifth time out.
Also I noticed most recently when the problem
occurred, I could correct it by squeezing the squeeze bulb.
On one occasion the bulb was sucked flat. Obviously the
fuel line is restricted somewhere. But where? Why can I
overcome it by squeezing the bulb?With:all elements in the
fuel line replaced, including my modified pickup lines, and
no further evidence of debris in the tank- I am lost!!! Any
One other thought: Is impossible I still have starter
trouble such that whehitffalls back to a rough idle the fuel
pump is not able to perform properly? It certainly behaves
as-it did whearthe.starter was bad. And-the dealer told me... .
you can't analyze a starter which is behaving erratically. Of
course, that may or may not account-for the coincidental
recovery when I correct it by squeezing the bulb.Butwheh ..
initially had the stator problem I had to live with it until it
completely failed and would not recover then it would test

After reading your letter I can really admire and
commend you for the work you have done to correct your
problem. The fuel line replaced and the ingenious pickup
you made are ok; but, you gave me the best clue when you
told me your squeeze bulb would flatten out and by
squeezing it you could get fuel back in your engine.
The only thing that would cause that would be a vacuum
in the line because either your vents are clogged or kinked.
The next time this happens I would open my gas fill cover
and check if my tank sucks in air. If you hear the air rush in
that is it. I would try a temporary hook up with an auxiliary
tank to check. Use a new bulb and line hook up as those
squeeze bulbs go bad often. I have installed auxiliary fuel
pumps on fast boats that starved for fuel. As a last
resort, disconnect your fuel line at the tank and see if the
bulb rounds out. Also, keep the fuel cap loose when this
happens and see if that corrects your problem.

I have a four cylinder Perkins Diesel in my sailboat that
is smoking excessively and seems to be running erratically.
Pull the injectors and have them checked for spray
pattern and operation. Black smoke is wasted fuel caused
usually by a fouled injector. Install new filters and bleed all
lines. Blue smoke is oil passing the rings or valve guides.
Depending on the hours on the engine, this may determine if
major repairs are in order.

Riverside Park reaches for compromise
by M.G. Swift
A compromise traffic plan offered by a long time
resident has brought about an apparent consensus within
the Riverside Park neighborhood of southwestern Fort
Riverside Park is bounded by the northbound south
forks of New River on the east, Davie Boulevard (SW 12
Street) to the south west to Interstate 95 and West
Broward Boulevard this the northern limit. This
waterfront community is composed of three
sub-neighborhoods: Gill Isles (off the west bank of New
River's north fork along Southwest 18th Avenue),
Sherwood Forest (south of Stranahan High School and
west of SW 15 Avenue and East Riverside (formed by the
forking of New River west to 15 Avenue and south to Davie
Up until six months ago, motorists could cut through
the neighborhood between Davie and Broward Boulevards
via the 11th Avenue Swingbridge or 18th Avenue. Also,
when the high school is in session,the neighborhood's
streets are heavily taxed. In January, the City of Fort
Lauderdale upon the recommendation of a neighborhood
planning committee erected 12 road closings within
Riverside Park. The stated objectives of the road closures
were to curb "traffic 'shorts-cutting' and speeding
through the neighborhood, and impede criminal activities

On July 16 many residents of Riverside Park attended a
meeting of the neighborhood to decide what to do about
the road closures. Elements of the planning committee
wanted to leave the road blocks where they were, making
them permanent, landscaped fixtures. Opponents wanted
to do away with all barricades and restore the traffic flow
to pre-January status.
A Gill Isle homeowner, L. Thomas Charcey, suggested
erecting an additional road block across Southwest 9
Street just east of Riverside Drive. Coupled with another
closure on 4th Street at 20th Avenue, a compromise
seemed to be arrived at taking pressure off 9th Street
and allowing better access out of Sherwood Forest
"I can live with this compromise," said past traffic plan
critic Ray Straub. Opponents and proponents of road
closures at the meeting agreed voting nearly unanimously
for Chancey's compromise.
If approved by the Riverside Park Resident's
Association on August 7th and later the Fort Lauderdale
City Commission, temporary barricades could soon be
coming down and landscaping and signage take their place
on the streets of the waterfront neighborhood.

Renting dockspace in residential neighborhoods of Fort
S Lauderdale was debated at a lively subcommittee meeting
of that city's Marine Advisory Board (MAB) in July. A
second meeting of this MAB subcommittee is planned 7
p.m., Wednesday, August 3rd, at Fort Lauderdale City
Hall's commission conference room.
Single-family homeowners renting their dockage is
"specifically prohibited in residential areas zoned R-1 and
R-1-A," stipulates Fort Lauderdale's City Code. But
according to Jamie Hart, the city's chief waterfront
official, it is a difficult ordinance to enforce. Hart asked
the subcommittee to formulate ways to make the city code
Is there enough legal commercial dockage in Fort
Lauderdale to absorb all the technically illegally docked
boats behind the city's 4409 waterfront R-1 and R-1-A
homes with no fixed bridges between them and the ocean?
"Yes." said Gary Groenewold, dockmaster of Hall of
Fame Marina, to his fellow subcommittee people.
Groenewald cited less than full commercial marinas and
boat yards throughout the city.
But, who says boaters displaced by code enforcement
upriver in Fort Lauderdale will stop downriver in the city's
pricy marinas. Captain Chuck Willard doesn't. President
of the Fort Lauderdale Waterfront Property Owners
Association, Willard fears, "some people want to run boats
out of Lauderdale." They will get their wish if current
dockage ordinances are not changed and are enforced as is
maintains Captain Willard, a 24-year veteran of the local
Karen Canal homeowner Dennis Nusser disagrees with
Willard. Nusser sees a trend among some upscale boat
Owners actually buying'waterfront property to dock their
yachts behind instead of renting dockspace at marinas. If

relatively cheap "black market" dockage dries up due to

will realize it is good business to pay a mortgage which
builds equity rather than pay more for marina dockage
Subcommittee Chairman Robert Balzer suggested that
those attending the July meeting go back to their
waterfront neighborhoods and civic associations finding
out what their neighbors think about R-1 dock rentals. The
subcommittee will meet the first Wednesday evening of
each of the next five months to arrive at some
recommendations on residential dockage for the "/AB and
the City Commission to consider.

Yacht brokers unsure about new licensing law
by Craig Lustgarten
A yacht brokerage licensing bill which became law last
month has drawn fire from critics who say the legislation is
The Marine Industries Association of South Florida
lobbied vigorously in Tallahassee for. two year to have
licensing reinstated for yacht brokers and salesmen. Under
Florida "sunset" provisions the licensing for yacht and ship
brokers was deleted from Florida statutes ten years ago.
The original sponsor of the new law was Rep. Anne
MacKenzie (D Fort Lauderdale). The law, which becomes
effective on October 1, says that In order to attain a yacht
broker's license, the applicant must: have served two
consecutive years as a salesman; maintain his/her principal
place of business and residence in Florida; be of good
moral character as testified to by three reputable
resident recommendations; have never been convicted of a
felony; and post a $25,000 surety bond or irrevocable
letter of credit for brokers and $10,000 for salesman.
Representative MacKenzie stated, "The licensing
procedure has a twofold purpose -1 to get the fraudulent
operators out of Florida and to help ensure that proper
collection of revenues is accomplished:"-
Rep. MacKenzie related thaithe State. Attorney's
Office had been notified'of people who were fraudulently
receiving' deposits from consumersfor boats they didn't
own thus the necessity for this legislation:
One of the problems with the new law is that there is no
requirement that applicants be tested prior to acquiring a
Rep. MacKenzie feels that testing is unnecessary
because "tests tend to be artificial barriers that keep
people out of businesss"
Ed Wiser, president; of Harrison Associates,
disagrees. Wiser stated, "I support the State's attempt,
-but the bill has big holes in it. There is no professional
organization to map out the method of conduct in the
industry, no licensing test required, and the requirements
-for the moral character standard are ludicrous."
Wiser feels that it is absolutely imperative that
applicants pass a test before becoming licensed, so that
they are able to demonstrate a modicum of knowledge in
areas such as Federal and State laws which affect
yachting, yacht financing,.Florida Sales.Tax, maritime law,
and the handling of grievances.
Wiser is also in favor of the establishment of a strong
professional organization to which every yacht broker in
Florida must belong, which would establish a code of ethics
in the industry, regulate its members, and be capable of
handling grievances from the public and between brokers.
Bud Brown, who is with United Yacht Brokers, says he
agrees with the need for licensing, but is unhappy that this
legislation excludes attorneys and charter brokers.
Brown stated, "I don't see enforcement provisions in
this legislation which provide penalties as a means of
enforcementifor those who choose to avoid getting a
license, or for those licensees which violate the law."
Jim Bleach, president of the Yacht Center, thinks the
bill will bring more professionalism into the industry.
He stated, "It's a glamour industry that attracts all
sorts of people. By putting regulation and licensing into
effect, it should help upgrade the overall quality and
integrity of the people in the yacht selling industry."

professional organization that promotes and supports an
American Merchant Marine and Maritime industry. The
Port Everglades club meets on the fourth Thursday of
each month. For more information on the club please
contact Marci Alson at 782-8825.
Bob Ross, manager of Seafarer Brokerage, also feels
it is a good idea to test people on the rules and regulations
of the industry on a regular basis and also thinks it is
important that brokers and salesman work out of an office
so that the public knows they are reputable.
Ross declared, "I am in favor of minor testing of the
rules and regulations -- why should we in the yacht
brokerage industry be any different from real estate
Some brokers also take offense with the $25,000
Surety Bond requirement under the new law..
Ed Weiser commented, "Past experience has shown
that insurance firms which deal in this industry are very
reluctant to bond yacht brokers. Considering the
increasingly litigious nature of our society, those firms are
going to be more hesitant than ever to bond yacht brokers,
especially in light of the shortcomings of this legislation."

Marina owners sitting on their assets
by Remy Mackowski
Boat sales are booming in Florida. But Dr. Frederick
W. Bell, a professor of coastal economics at Florida State
University, isn't smiling.
That's because Bell is in the second year of a two-year
Sea Grant study assessing the economic status of Florida's
marina industry. And the results that he's tabulated so far
show a bleak horizon, not just for marinas but for boaters
"If it were an industry problem alone," Bell contends,
"you could say, 'leave it to market forces.' But there's
something here for boaters to be concerned about in terms
of their use of the waterways of Florida.
"What's happening statewide," says Bell, "is that
marina owners are sitting on an appreciating asset which,
in terms of revenue, is just not generating acceptable
According to Bell, the rate of return based on gross
sales is averaging under 10% for Florida marinas. This
statistic-is consistent with the findings of University of
Florida economist J. Walter Milon in a similar study
.conducted in 1982.
.One of the prime culprits for this anemic financial
performance is escalating land values. "This demand for
condos, restaurants and other such facilities on the water
is greater than the demand for boats and'marina services,"
says Bell.Consequently, profits realized by marine owners
are continually eroded by rising taxes.
As Bell monitors the problem, he's also researching
solutions. One of the most prominent is "bluebelting." The
term refers to tax assistance to help marina owners cope
;_ with highest-and-best-use appraisals of their coastal
- 'properties. Theoretically, the result of blue belting is that
a marina's tax bill is more in line with its profits.
S The political effects of bluebelting, however, are
balanced by lost tax revenues at the local government level.
"For that reason, says Bell, "we need to come to s6me
conclusions about the feasibility and effectiveness of
bluebelting in Florida."
That's exactly what Bell hopes to do at a one-day
workshop he is heading in Orlando on August 4. Titled
"The Economic and Political Feasibility of Tax Relief (or
-bluebelting) for Marinas in Florida," the conference is a
forum for discussion of Bell's findings. The outcome, Bell
"iopes, will be the first step toward the creation of "a
favorable environment to foster water-related activities in
And if Bell's findings bear any credence, it's a step long
overdue. Based on returns from surveys sent to 2,000
marinas statewide, Bell's study yields some alarming
According to the survey, 28% of South Florida's marina
owners plan to sell to realize capital gains. That figure is
33.7% throughout Florida. Of those who plan to remain in
business statewide and in South Florida, 37% and 34%
respectively, say they will not be adding any wet slips to

in obtaining environmental permits and rising insurance and
This problem of a lack of saltwater wetslips is
compounded by another statistic: The average number of
people on a marina waiting list is 33.1.
It's obvious to Bell that there's a problem for Florida's
boaters. And it's one that promises to continue
mushrooming unless the trend of diminishing salt-water
wet slips can be stemmed. Bell hopes that generating an
awareness of the problem and its consequences will begin a
movement toward an equitable solution that will benefit all

Boca wins battle over beach renourishment
74j F-t :~~
*e ".- '4

Dredge contractor's bulldozers on narrow stretch of Boca Raton's beach
by Craig Lustgarten
'Despite close to three years. of challenges by state
regulatory agencies lawsuits and demonstrations by
environmental groups, allegations of bid rigging'by
contractors, mechanical problems, and even alleged
sabotage, renourishment of Boca Raton's Beach along
Spanish River Park finally began recently.
Dredging will occur 24 hours day at Spanish River
Park until the end of August, when enough sand will have
been pumped onto the beach to maintain a certain width for
the next seven years.
Rick Spandoni, the City of Boca Raton's coastal and
planning engineer for the project, says dredging will have
to be repeated every 7-10 years, which will eventually
deplete the supply of sand from the offshore pits that are
being used to renourish the beach.
Spadoni declared, "By the end of August, there will be
a beach where there hasn't been much of one."
The City survived its latest legal liurdle to get the
project goingwihen an attempt by environmental groups to
obtain an injunction to halt the project failed.
The American Littoral Society, a national marine
conservation organization, was one of the plaintiffs who
filled suit to stop the project in Federal District Court.
Alex Stone, South Florida Director of the American
Littoral Society, stated, "We filed the suit to stop the

project entirely, based on the adverse impacts our
research showed would happen to offshore and nearshore
coral communities as a result of the sand dredging and
deposition of material." -
Stone continued, "Our contention is that there is no
permanent erosion in the area -- that it is a cyclical thing
that will reverse itself, by itself."
However, after taking a tour of the beach at Spanish
River Park, Federal Judge NormanTC. Roettger, Jr. ruled
in the City's favor, denying the injunction in June.
Rick Spadoni related that the state of the beach's
erosion obviously played a major factor in the judge's
decision. The city also claims the beach widening is needed
to protect State-Road A1A from hurricane damage.
Suzanne Mrvosh, a Boca resident who has been fighting
the project, stated, "Renourishment is the wrong term for
this project, it's more like legalized murder."
Mrvosh says the main reason she is opposed to this
project is environmental. "Dredging is a sure way to kill the
offshore reefs," Mrvosh related.'When the coral becomes
covered with sand particles, it retracts and the whole reef
in turn eventually dies."
Mrvosh and other environmentalists also say that sea
turtles nesting on Boca's beaches will be significantly
affected by the sand dredging operations and that such
operations will directly destroy nests and discourage
Mrvosh remarked, "It's arrinstinctive thing for sea
turtles to come back to the same beaches year after year
to nest, and if the beach is destroyed or altered in some
way the turtles may have to go elsewhere to nest or may
nest too close to the waterline."
Project manager Rick Spadoni countered that sea
turtles affected by the dredging operations have baen
relocated out of the dredging area, and the nests that are
being removed are relocated to the south.
Spadoni admitted that the surf close to the shore will
have some cloudiness due to'turbidity -- the suspension of
silt ard clay particles in the sand that are stirred up by the
dredging process. But given the types of currents and
wave activity in the area, the cloudiness will stay close to
shore and not bother the reefs and marine life'offshore. He
added that marine life lost initially, particularly
sand-dwellers, will usually come back within a year.
As part of the mitigation process for the nearshore
rock outcroppings that will be destroyed by the
renourishment project, an artificial reef was built in April
south of the beach restoration project.
Spadoni related that "studies done on the new reef
showed more varieties of fish inhabiting the reef as
opposed to what was in the rock outcroppings."
In addition, the City built a groin jetty (of limestone
boulders) to protect Red Rock and rock outcroppings to
the south from.damage by drifting sand and sediment from
the renourishment project
Project opponents claim, however, that the groin jetty
has holes in it and thus is insufficient to keep the sand from
damaging the reefs which they were designed to protect.

Florida Keys The pristine beauty of coral reefs and
their habitants will be the focus of underwater photogra-
phers from around the nation during the Third Annual Na-
tional Marine Sanctuaries' Underwater Photo Contest, Au-
gust 1-September 30 in the Rorida Keys.
The competition will award prizes to divers whose pho-
tographs best exemplify the splendor of marine life in the
federal preserves at.Key. Largo and Looe Key (Lower
Keys). A $1,00Q savings bond from the Marine Bank of
Monroe County will be awarded as grand prize for the best
entry from three categories (wide-angle, normal and close-
up views) of competition. Each sanctuary will also award
first, second, third and honorable mention prizes for every
Prizes include dive equipment from such manufacturers
as Oceanic U.S.A., Underwater Kinetics, Wenoka, Dacor
and Henderson Aquatics, Inc. Additional awards include
dive trips courtesy of several Keys dive shops and Fugi
"The contest is designed to increase diver appreciation
of the natural beauty of coral reefs in a very non-
consumptive activity," said Looe Key Sanctuary Manager
Billy Causy. "One tends to have a greater appreciation for
a resource when they strive to capture it in a photograph."
Entries must be shot on color slide film (products that
can be developed by E-6 methods) and film must be pro-
cessed at participating Keys' photo labs.
Judges for the contest include underwater photo-
graphic experts Robert Holland, Bob Haff and Stephen
S"We're seeking not only to award creativity and techni-
cal merit, but sensitivity to preservation of our precious
corals reefs as well," Frink. "We will immediately discard
any image that shows people engaged in an activity (such as
a diver touching coral) that could possibly damage the reef
or the life surrounding it

World speed records fall
by Joe Alberston
SARASOTA, Fl.,.(July 3)--Perfect water conditions
led to all five of the national class course average speed
records to explode over the holiday weekend at the Fourth
Annual Suncoast Offshore Grand Prix.
Al Copeland Sr. ledthe parade of record setters by
dialing in the new Popeyes/diet Coke to the tune of an
average speed of 10969 MPH in the Superboat class.That
topped the old mark he set last year in Bay City, Michigan -
of 106.80 MPH and broke the overall course average speed
record of 108.04 set by Bob Kaiser, in the Open class,
which was also set in Bay City.
It was a 1-2 sweep for the Copelands as Al Copeland
Jr. held on forsecond place. Phil Meshinsky, in his PTM
Express, took third in the Superboat class.
Finishing right on the heels of Al Sr. was Open class
winner John D'Elia in his rig Special Edition. D'Elia and his
son, J.D., were 17 seconds in back of Copeland and
averaged 109.45, also topping Kaiser's mark. It was the
D'Elia's first win on the circuit in 1988 and will vault them
into second place in the overall National High-Points
standings. entering the race Kaiser, in Swiftsure Motor
Yachts, held a one point lead over Lorne Leibel and his
Canada Homes Challenge in the High-Point standings.
Leibel finished second here and Kaiser third, therefore
Leibel, from Toronto, Canada will be the new leader and
Kaiser will fall to third with four races to go on the
In the Modified class Ed Colyer, throttling Team
Skater, broke the old mark by more than three seconds as
he averaged 106.88 MPH. It was Colyer's second victory, in
as many starts, he did not enter the first two races of the
year. Joseph Mach, in Dirty Laundry, who won the first
two races in Modified, finished a close second in Sarasota
by averaging 106.78 MPH. Al Kropp, driving KAT, was

first place in the High-Point standings of the Pro-Stock.
class by virtue of their first-place finish. They averaged
101.17 MPH in High Roller, shattering the old mark of
94.28 MPH. It was a "full weekend" for the Akourys as
they also set a straightaway speed record at the Donzi Kilo
Speed Runs on Friday July 1. Of the four kilo records set,
.theirs upped the current class record by the largest
margin and brought them the Mike Poppa Memorial Trophy.
Finishing second in Pro-Stock was Allan Dunteman in
Agitator, edging out Buffalo, New York's Gary Rotundo
and his Scaredy Cat.
The Stock class saw defending National Chamion
Richard Felsen take first, and raise the record he had
already owned to 90.34 MPH. Fejsen's High Risk was
followed by James Kimes of Key West in Crimebuster.
Kimes remains ahead of Felsen in the High-Point race by 76
points, Michael Moritz, of St. Louis, MO, had his beat

set a kilo mark, raising the record by more than three miles
per hour by averaging 80.22 MPH for their two runs.

Home-town driver Steve Kildahl teamed up with Steve
Stepp to average 77.90 MPH and to win the Sportsman B
crown. The consistent crew of Turn of the Century, led by
Joe Sorrentino, took second and the third place finisher
may be the happiest person around. Rick Bieluwka, who is
paralyzed from the waist down, teamed up with Tom Mason
to come up with their best finish of the year.
Two other locals, Richard Middleton and Dale Ream,
used the home course advantage to win in Sportsman A.
Middleton and Race Director Gene Whipp used the same
boat, Team Gulfwind, to set a kilo record at 84.32 MPH.
Nuri and John Sabunca, of Rochester, NY, were a close
second in Red Baron and Thomas Herring took third in
Four of the five national course average speed records
which were broken in Sarasota, pending approval, were set
at the 1987 Bay City race. The next stop on the National
Circuit as Waterfront News went to press was July 23,
happened to be Bay City, Michigan. From there the boats
will head to Grand Haven, MI August 13, Traverse City, MI
September 4 and Atlantic City, NJ on September 24.
The beneficiary of the Sarasota race is the Suncoast
Foundation for Handicapped Children. When this year's
figures are tabulated, it will push the total contributions
over the $1 million mark in four short years. The race teams
alone, through friendly wagers and giving back prize
money, raised over $20,000 this year.

Caribbean fairy tale

Would you like to read your kids a fairy tale of the
Caribbean written by performer Jimmy Buffett and his
tght-year-old daughter? If so, be sure to pick up The Jolly
"This book was conceived one day," the jacket reads,
"when Jimmy was watching Savannah Jane pretend to type
on his computer. She was making up a story and telling it
aloud. He copied down her thoughts, and then they
compromised on the basic plot"
The Jolly Mon is a simple, happy tale for children and it
has a laundry list of the right elements:
a sunny Caribbean island called Bananaland
a happy minstrel who would be king (and who looks
strikingly like Savannah Jane Buffett)
a beautiful but pragmatic princess
a magic guitar

a gang of the most feared pirates of the sea

HOW I TREAT HEADACHES
FOR LASTING RESULTS
Ten percent of our population suffers from head-
aches and two-thirds are women. Medication may give
temporary relief and the headaches re-occur if the un-
derlying cause of nerve pressure is not removed.
This nerve pressure results from a loss in normal
joint motion of one or more of the neck vertebrae..
.. These seven bones have joints between them to allow
normal bending and turning of the neck in all directions.
As the entire flow of nerve impulses to control all parts
of your body must flow through your neck, its optimal
SDr.jeljlnsa functioning is most important.
Physicn Causes of joint motion loss are -auto 'accidents/
vpi hy whiplash, stomach sleeping, wrong pillow usage, sports
injuries, occupational stresses, and arthritis.
I perform a specific joint motion exam which reveals any locked joints and
then un-lock them with gentle treatment to allow free movement and remove
nerve pressure. When the neck functions freely you feel better because there is
no build up of nerve pressure you. feel as a headache. As.I have helped many
headache sufferers, I want to help you feel better. For an appointment, call Dr.
Johnson at 564-9999, 1509 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale @i988
