Columbus Day sails


The thirty-fifth annual Columbus- Day Cruising
Regatta will be held Saturday and Sunday, October 8
and 9, 1988.

For the first time, alternate dates, October 15 and
16, have been established in the event of a hurricane
or impossible weather.

Notification of cancellation on day of race, Octo-
ber 8, would be on NOAA weather radio.

The entry fee for one of the largest regattas in the
U.S.A. is $30 per boat through September 25. From
then until October 1, the entry fee is $50. The abso-
lute deadline for entries is 1900 hours (7 p.m.), Sat-
urday, October 1. Entry forms contained within
Columbus Day programs are available at most local
marine stores, marinas and sailmakers in Dade, Bro-
ward and south Palm Beach County.

Saturday's race is from Miami, at Coconut Grove,
south about 10 miles to Elliott Key. On Sunday,
sailors will race from Elliott Key back to Miami.
The Columbus Day Regatta is a family event, fun for
yachtsmen of all ages.

The Columbus Day organization is a non-profit
group with a regatta committee comprised of 12
members and their spouses. The committee raises
money by selling T-shirts to keep the entry. fee low.
Monies collected go toward trophies, flags, medal-
lions, printing and a fund for next year's regatta.

The first Columbus Day Regatta was held in
October 1954 as part of an annual program honoring
Christopher Columbus. Twenty- four boats under 30
feet long participated. In 1956, 71 boats participated
and an over 30 foot class was added. Today, the fleet
has 21 different classes from Americas Cup sized
yachts to 18 footers including cruising/pleasure
yachts.

The regatta has grown so in popularity that for
the past four years, it has been necessary to limit the
fleet to 700 boats. In addition to the racing boats,
more than 2500 spectator boats gather to enjoy this
most colorful event.


The anchorage at Elliott Key will be approxi-
mately 3/4 of a mile wide and 4 miles long starting
at Boca Chita Key, running parallel to Sands Key and
Elliott Key, ending at the entrance of National Park
Channel.

This entire area will be an enforced "no wake
zone" with no high speed water sports allowed, i.e.
jet skis or water skiing.

Also; no flares. These rules will be enforced by
18 to 20 National. Park Service and Florida Marine
Patrol boats. There will be about a 3/4 mile open
area at Sand Cut dividing the anchorage area into two
parts.

Once again, the committee is enforcing a NO
WATER BALLOON policy for all racing vessels
during the weekend. Violations would result in dis-
qualification and any future race entry would be
disallowed.

In addition to the committee, there will be two
paramedics and a designated salvage vessel to respond
to any emergencies.
The salvage service, Atlantis Marine, will moni-
tor channel #16.

The finish line will be patrolled by the Coast
Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary to keep the flow of
boats smooth. The channel, across Featherbed Banks
will be limited to one way traffic south on Saturday
and one way north on Sunday during peak hours.
The committee requests that all captains familiar-
ize themselves with the special racing instructions.
Every effort is being made to ensure the Columbus
Day regatta is a safe and fun-filled weekend.
The trophy presentations will be held one week
after the regatta. This year's trophy party, complete
with hamburger barbecue, cocktails and dancing, will
be at the Coral Reef Yacht Club, October 15, from
6:30 p.m. until midnight. (Or, October 22 if the
alternate race dates are necessary.)
For additional Columbus Day Regatta entry infor-
mation, in Dade County call Rebecca Martin at 858-
7124; in Broward and Palm Beach County, call Jeff
Doyle at 772-7246.

EDITOR'S LOG CON'T

Various waterfront neighborhoods are
deciding future traffic patterns, zoning and
development planning for their immediate
communities within Fort Lauderdale. City officials
are being rather vague as to who decides. Registered
voters? Civic association members? Property owners?
All residents? Who conducts the polling the city,
civic association or the master plan committee?




A second annual Barefoot Mailman Walk to
benefit "Kids in Distress" will be held Sunday,
October 9th on Hillsboro's beach in northern Broward
County. With registration beginning at 8 a.m., the
walk sponsored by the Pompano Beach Parks and
Recreation Department and the U.S. Postal Workers -
will start at Barefoot Mailman Resort on A1A at 10
a.m.
From 1885 until 1893, a succession of men
carried the mail along Florida's lower east coast. They
walked their route from Hypoluxo to Miami along
the beach for this was the only path available to
them.
Close encounters with wildlife and treacherous
tides were frequent in this still untamed wilderness.
When the mailmen reached Hillsboro Inlet, they
either used a small boat they hid to cross the inlet, or
waded across, holding the mail above their head.
In the summer of 1886, James Edward Hamilton,
one of the Barefoot Mailmen, lost his life in the line
of duty at the Hillsboro Inlet. It is believed that
someone stole his boat and he lost his life while
trying to cross the inlet with the mail.
In honor of James E. Hamilton, the city of Pom-


pano Beach and the U.S. Postal Employees are
sponsoring the second annual Barefoot Mailman
Walk. This is to benefit Kids in Distress, Inc.
The participants will trace part of the route of the
legendary Barefoot Mailman, from the Barefoot
Mailman resort on Hillsboro Mile, then walk
"barefooted" along the sand to the Hillsboro Inlet.
From there they will walk past the lighthouse where
a commemorative statue stands in honor of James E.
Hamilton. Participants will then walk across the
bridge, back to the beach and proceed along the beach
to Atlantic Boulevard and finish at the Hamilton
Station Post Office on N. Riverside Drive.
When participants stroll along the beach, they
will be following in the footsteps of the Barefoot
Mailman.

4 Waterfront News October 1988 Letters


oosk Big AlI


Question -
My insurance company wants my batteries cov-
ered or installed in battery boxes. I have oversized bat-
teries in my boat and I can't get boxes to fit Can you
hep? Harold

Answer-
There are a few outfits that build boxes to order.
But, they are not cheap. I suggest you make your
own out of half-inch marine plywood with drop sides.
You can then fiberglass or coat them with resin and
paint Secure them with stretch cord. They will pre-
vent shorts or broken cables if you step on them or
drop tools across the terminals. A


Q--
I am in the market for a boat and in sort of a quan-
dary. This will be my first boat and I want to get a
good, all-round boat for cruising, fishing and taking
the family out In certain publications I read articles
evaluating models of cars, trucks and motorcycles,
but nothing that will help me on choosing a boat.
Could you help me on this?
Robert
A-
What you ask is quite a tall order. What you need
to do is: pick out the size boat you need by length
and beam, with or without head (installed or porta-
ble); daysailer or overnighter, sleeping two, four or
six; galley or not Now engines: outboard, inboard,
Lo.'s, twins or single, gas or diesel.
As you can see the options are endless! Car dealers
or manufacturers will loan models to an expert for
performance evaluations which are printed in publica-
tions to help or guide consumers in their choice of
vehicles. Boat manufacturers and dealers print bro-
chures extolling their own yachts.
To get an unbiased opinion, you have to hire a
marine surveyor or mechanic to advise you whether or
not to buy. My advice is go to the boat shows,
get all the literature, pick out what you think you
would want, then sail trial that boat with the surveyor
to see if you like that boat What I would like could
be wrong for you. Al

O00

Q-
I have a sharp, metallic rapping when I race or rev
up my engine as I start it. It sort of lessens after
while. But, it never goes completely away. what
could be wrong and what can I do about it?
Jim
A-
What you describe is usually a loose or hung
valve. It also could be bad timing or low octane fuel
which gives a pinging noise as you put a strain on
your motor.
I would change your oil and filter first Then, I'd
buy some high octane gas. If the noise persists, then
remove your valve covers to check for a defective
valve. Not knowing from your letter the engine's age
or condition, you may need valve work, retiming and/
ora tone-up. Al


I have an outboard engine that fouls the plugs
continuously. Clean the plugs or install new ones and
she runs for the day, but then starts to smoke heavily
and loses power. Change the plugs again, runs swell
again. The engine is a 1982. Do I need a motor job or
will an additive help?
A-
Usually an engine (outboard) smokes because of
too much oil in the gas. When you add additives, you
may compound the problem by adding still more oil.
When you pull your plugs, check to see which plugs
are the wet ones. Perhaps, your rings are worn and oil
is blowing by onto your plugs. I would first put in
oil according to what your motor calls for 50 to 1,
100 to 1, but no additives at all. That could be your
whole problem. If the engine does still smoke, a
compression check will locate your problem.
Al


Q-
During Safe Boating Week I met you at a marine
store where you were manning a Coast Guard Auxil-
iary table with regulations and pamphlet pertaining to
boat safety and seamanship classes. Other people and
I spoke to you about our boating problems and
issues. We really enjoyed our time at your booth.
Couldn't you have these meetings more often?
Caroline
A-
We do! I and many of my fellow Auxiliarists
speak at different clubs and gatherings. Any Saturday
morning you can come to the Fort Lauderdale Flotilla
Station at 601 Seabreeze Blvd. We can give you all
the information you would want on boating. We do
plan more of these seminars at other boat centers and
marinas.


I have a brand-new boat with an I.O. drive unit. I
want to keep this unit and engine in A-i shape. Can I
buy or install a fresh water flush out system to pre-
vent rust and corrosion?
Harvey

A-
You can buy a flush out system in most marine
stores. There are clamps or ears with a water hose
connection that fits over your lower drive end for out-
boards or I.O.'s. They work just fine. You can also
install a shut off valve and connection into a block or
inlet hoseplug; then, you can run your engine and
flush it at the same time.
Al



Q-
I have a sailboat that I have to wait at every draw-
bridge with. I have five bridges to lift to get outside
and some on time schedules, not opening on demand.
I love my sailboat, but it is quite a hassle getting out
and home. What kind of advice can you give me on
this problem?
Sally

A-
I have a motor sailer with a tabernacle mast -
one that I can tilt so that I can get under a bridge.
You need someone with you to do this easily. You
also can dock at a marina closer to the ocean eliminat-
ing some of the bridges. A sailor who loves his sail-
boat also must develop patience to wait at these draw-
bridges or he'll have to go to a powerboat (heaven
forbid).
I lower my mast enough to clear the bridges going
from the Atlantic to the Gulf side down in the Keys.
As with my set up, I can do it as I approach the
bridge. If yoir mast is stepped, you'll just have to
move closer to the ocean or wait.


000


I have a fairly large boat and I just bought an aux-
iliary generator. This was a reconditioned unit. It ran
for about 26 hours and suddenly locked up. It is a 4-
cylinder engine, fresh water cooled and quite expen-
sive. When I went back to the dealer I bought it from,
they said I had a water condition and it was not their
fault. What could have caused this and could it be my
fault.
A-
Water getting into the cylinders of any engine will
cause a water lockup as the water is not compressible
and a lot of damage can occur. On a fresh-water cooled
engine, water can enter through a bad head gasket, a
cracked head or block, bad valve guides or a leaking
manifold. I would get in touch with the manufacturer
and the rebuilder. Your brand builds a great unit and
they last for hundreds of trouble-free hours. This
dealer should stand behind this generator he sold you,
unless he sold you an engine with a "no warranty"
clause. Then you have no recourse.

Local USCG chief addresses "Zero Tolerance"


Editor:'

The guest at the September meeting of my sailing
club was the local Coast Guard Commander, Lt. J.
Smith Buroe. He told us about his equipment, per-
sonnel and responsibilities. Of course, the question
and answer period focused upon Zero Tolerance and
Lt. Buroe's approached and instructions to his person-
nel regarding boarding, searches and other activities.
The most important information he gave us was:

S 1. There is not a set pattern or profile of boats the
Coast Guard will stop and board.
2. The Coast Guard will not (or should not) search
persons, personal belongings, small closed areas
(drawers, cupboards, etc.) without probable cause to
suspect the presence of illegal drugs. :-
3. Local personnel has been instructed to be cour-
teous, efficient and to avoid damage to any boats
boarded.


Editor:

It's too late to repair the damage that has been
done to the 15th Street Boat Ramp (in Fort
Lauderdale).
The "beautification committee" has decided to
bring culture to the boat ramp.
They have put darling little garbage disposals that
are only big enough for a potted plant so after two
boats disposing of garbage, it is all over the grass.
They have put in strips of grass and planted trees -
this, of course, takes up much needed parking places.
The overlooked the fact that the boat ramps are in
deplorable condition and should have been fixed up
first.
The fishermen don't come down to the boat ramp
to sip martinis under the trees. Talk about no other
place money and take away boat spaces..

Mrs. Jane Carlson
Fort Lauderdale


4. Lt. Buroe encouraged our membership to con-
tact him personally if we feel his people have acted in
violation of his instructions.
5. There is no machinery in place which will pre-
vent or lessen the chance of multiple boardings, how-
ever, the Coast Guard is developing a computer
system for better record keeping and control of
boardings.
6. Each boat has the right to receive a form 4100
completed by the boarding commander indicating the
date, time, results of inspection (or search, if made).
This is not a guarantee against subsequent boardings,
but might help cut the time and depth of another
inspection.
7. He recommended that we post notices on our
boats regarding prohibition of illegal drugs and
actions which the Coast Guard suggests the skipper
take if he finds drugs aboard the vessel.
The tone of the meeting was friendly, if not cor-
dial. The Lieutenant did a very good job of defining
his responsibilities and explaining the rules and laws
under which he must operate. Most questions were
answered, not always with the answer we wanted to
hear, but with enough information to counteract some
misconceptions, presumptions and prejudices we have
held.
The membership is to be commended for not let-
ting their emotions get out of hand in discussing a
very emotional subject.
The Zero Tolerance Committee's report was
passed and the recommendations will be implemented
in the near future. You will hear and see more of this
by the next meeting.

Editor:


While fishing from a dock on a canal near Sunrise
Blvd., I've often cringed to watch boats of all sizes
dodge 'joy-riding' jet-skiers. Since this canal is not
designated a "no wake" zone, may of these boats enter
and exit the area at considerable speeds, and as we
know, unlike cars, boats have no brakes.
The hazards are compounded by many factors, for
example: relatively few people renting jet-skis know
the navigational "rules of the road;" then the volume
of noise from the engines of jet-skis and boats alike
make the approach of traffic difficult to hear; and as
many jet-skiers are often tossed some distance from
their crafts, there is more danger of not being seen by
boaters.
South Florida has some of the busiest waterways
in the nation and as more people take to the water, I
am concerned with the potential for jet-ski accidents.

'89-model boat preview at Miami Fall Show


Miami The first major showing the southeast of
new 1989 pleasure boats, motors and related marine
accessories and equipment will take place at the
Miami Fall Boat Show scheduled Friday through
Wednesday, October 14-19, at the Stephen Muss
Convention Center, formerly Miami Beach Conven-
tion Center.
"Indications are that exhibiting dealers and manu-
facturers will have a bevy of styling and power-
enhanced surprises in both established brand names as
well as the introduction of completely new lines,"
predicted boat show spokesperson Patty Sanders.
A respected name in autos and trucks will intro-
duce a first-ever line of bass and fishing/ski boats,
along with higher-powered outboard engines and a
line of inflatable craft.
One of the oldest and largest pleasure boat dealer-


ships in South Florida will introduce an all-new high
performance Italian boat along with new domestic
models. This same boat dealer sold 130 boats for
more than $2 million at the recent Miami Summer
Boat Show.
"The Fall Boat Show has quickly become popular
with boating industry leaders as an opportunity to
showcase new model boats and equipment in one of
the nation's hottest recreational marine markets,"
observed Sanders. Nearly one-fourth of all pleasure
boats in Florida are registered in Dade, Broward,
Monroe and Palm Beach Counties where sales exceed
the half-billion-dollar mark annually.
Many South Florida dealers who have reserved
space for the Miami Fall Boat Show haven't seen the
new products themselves. Traditionally, manufactur-
ers unveil new year models at the Chicago Boat Show


Navy Appreciation Week in October


by Kristen Anderson

Navy Appreciation Week, scheduled for October 7-
14, will be the biggest celebration of the Navy that
Broward County has ever seen. Sponsored by the
Port Everglades Authority and the Fort Lauderdale
Council of the Navy League, a week-long schedule of
festivities will include ship tours, a colorful parade
and a host of special events designed to bring the
community and th" Navy together.
In recognition of the Navy's $20 million annual
economic impact on Broward County, the Port Ever-
glades Commission has voted to waive all dockage
fees for Navy vessels in Port during that week.
"We felt it was very important to let the Navy
know how much we appreciate their loyalty to this
area for liberty calls," said Commission Chairman
Joseph DeLillo. "Waiving dockage fees for this great
occasion is our way to say thanks."
"We're doing everything we can to welcome and
honor the Navy ships that participate," says Ed
Flynn, director of Public Affairs for the Fort Lauder-
dale Navy League. "Special discount travel and


accommodation arrangements ate being made so fami-
lies can be here to join their spouses in the festivi-
ties. We intend this to be a Navy family week with
many special events for both.
Congressman E. Clay Shaw has accepted the posi-
tion of Honorary Chairman, and the cities of Fort
Lauderdale and Hollywood, along with other local
Navy Leagues, are lending financial and organiza-
tional support to make the first annual Navy Appre-
ciaiton Week memorable and successful.
This will be a wonderful opportunity for our com-
munity to show. its appreciation of the Navy and the
positive impact it has in this area. Several busi-
nesses have already committed to large discounts for
Navy personnel. Corporate sponsors are still needed
for special events and excursions, and area attractions
are encouraged to donate tickets.
For more information on how YOU and your
business can help make Navy Appreciaiton Week the
best celebration the Navy has ever seen in this state,
please call Tom Shoop, president of the Fort Lauder-
dale Council, Navy League of the United States; 462-

New novel set in Lauderdale

by Milt Baker
Fort Lauderdale author Cherokee Paul McDonald
is out with a new novel named Gulf Stream, and it's
must reading if you live here and enjoy a fast-
moving, well-told story.
With the Fort Lauderdale waterfront as its back-
drop, the story pits good guys on the marine patrol
against bad guys using fast, expensive yachts to
smuggle in marijuana and cocaine from across the
Gulf Stream.
Along the way, McDonald's novel introduces us
to crooked cops and straight ones, a horny customs
agent, Bahamian officials on the take, a kidnapped
narc, the head of Cuba's secret police, and even Fidel
Castro himself. He shows his true colors early-on when he dumps

Sailing anglers troll for fun & prizes


by Debi Rand
There will be over S1,000 in cash and prizes to be
given away at the Fifth Annual Sailboat Fishing
Tournament on November 12 at Harbour Towne
Marina in Dania, but the biggest winner will be the
Neurofibromatosis Foundation of Florida who will
profit from the proceeds from the event.
The Kiwanis Club of North Broward is once again
doing their fair share for charity, by hosting what has
proven to be a vary successful tournament. Last year
over 100 people in 28 boats took part with over
$2,500 being raised to benefit victims of
neurofibromatosis.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is commonly known as
the Elephant Man's Disease and is more common in
our society than muscular dystrophy, occurring once
in every 3,000 births. Tumor growth can lead to
blindness, scoliosis, cancer, deafness, paralysis, sei-
zures, and eventual death.
"Our main goal is to increase attendance so that
while the participants are having fun, they are also


helping a very worthwhile charity," said John Ziegler,
Chairman of this year's event. "The NF Foundation
calls this disease a 'devastating American health prob-
lem' and we're happy to do what we can to aid the
Foundation's work."
The Tournament begins with a Kick-off party held
on Thursday, November 10th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00
p.m. at Tug Boat Annies, Harbour Towne Marina,
Dania.
Weigh-in is scheduled from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00
p.m. with an awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to a $75 entry donation per boat (cov-
ering Skipper and Mate) each additional angler may
participate for a donation of $10. Various categories
of boats permitted to enter the tournament range from
mono or multi-hull sailboats to Hobie-Cat craft or
Boardsailers. A $600.00 First Place Cash Prize will
be awarded to the top boat.
For more information on how to participate in the
Fifth Annual Sailboat Fishing Tournament, please
call 524-9450, ask for the "Fishing Desk".

Billfish tournament marking 23rd year


The 47th running of the Fort Lauderdale Semi-
Annual Billfish Tournament will be held on October
28, 29, and 30, 1988 marking the 23rd year for this
exciting event to be held again at the Harbour Towne
Marina. Thanks to dedicated donors and sponsors, the
prizes and trophies are expected to be better than ever.
Major cash awards will be the same as last tourna-
ment: $10,000 top boat and crew, $3,000 second
place boat and crew, $2,000 third place boat and crew,
$1,500 fourth place boat and crew, $1,250 fifth place

place boat and crew. Other cash awards, including
$1,000 heaviest dolphin, $1,000 heaviest wahoo and
$500 heaviest tuna,-remain plus various trophies and
merchandise awards.
The tag and release format for billfish, which the
tournament began in October 1986, has proven a
great success in aiding in the conservation of this
great recreational resource. Due to a new.ruling by the
State of Florida this year, the tournament has revised
its tag and release program to include marlin and
spearfish. Sailfish, spearfish, white marlin and blue
marlin must be tagged and released with 200 points
given for each sailfish, 500 points for each spearfish
or marlin. Swordfish must be boated and still count
800 points. One billfish per angler per day is allowed
to be boated. Points on boated billfish are counted at
four points per pound, not exceeding 200 on sailfish

The Fort Lauderdale Semi-Annual Billfish Tourna-
ment announces also that their portion of the South
Florida Fishing Classic proceeds for the tournament
held in June 1988 has been allotted. $5,000 will be
donated to the International Commission for Conser-
vation of Atlantic Tuna (ICCAT). The money will go
to ICCAT for their billfish program. This includes
enhanced research, assessing-billfish stock in Atlantic
waters, and determining the effect of commercial and
recreational fishing in the Atlantic. This program has
been obtaining excellent information on the subject
$4,200 of the Classic money will go towards the
sinking of the Bud Krohn Reef. Bud Krohn, who
passed away this year, was a great friend of the local
tournaments. Both of the above donations of the
Classic money are made in cooperation with the
Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo which is donating the
same amounts as the Classic proceeds for the two
causes.

Shark Valley


by Martha Muzner
Is southeastern Florida your home or are you a
visitor? In either case, there is a certain spot you
might want to put on your 'must' list should you
desire an experience on a -strange and unusual
watercourse.
You will find this adventure awaiting you at
Shark Valley, a small section of Everglades National
Park, on the Tamiami Trail 30 miles west of Miami.
The site was closed for renovation for almost two
years, but is now open once more. For nature lovers,
a day's visit is an adventure beyond compare.
What is there about this particular place that
makes it unique? Of the three entrances to the park,
this one will afford you the. very best glimpse of
Florida as it originally was.
In some sections of the Everglades, outside the
National Park, you will find noisy airboats, wild rides
on water slides, tourist oriented souvenir shops! On
the Tamiami Trail you will come upon all of these.
But once you enter the Park, there is only, as little
disturbed as possible, the "river of grass" in all its
vast splendor, dotted occasionally by'small islands of
green, known as hummocks or hammocks.
My own exploration was largely by tram, an
open-sided vehicle driven by an experienced and most
knowledgeable guide. In our two-hour ride we tra-
versed a one-way, narrow, ffteen mile long road,
which had been slightly elevated during the renova-
tion period. This was done in order to make possible
:the conducting of trips in the rainy, flooding season
c '4 '4 %- 4 -. .


when the original road sometimes became
impassable.
At first it was hard to believe we were traveling
only a few inches above a real river; we were con-
scious only of journeying through a huge swampy
prairie of tall, undulating green, the sawgrass of the
shallow watercourse. Yet this river, which has its
beginning far to the north, and flows with an imper-
ceptible slope southward to the Gulf is the very life-
blood of the Everglades' ecosystem.
Once you've experienced the magnitude and mag-
nificence of this grassy sea, you begin to look more
closely to discover the myriad forms of life it
supports.
If you are a bird watcher, there are innumerable
species to glimpse a flock of snow white ibis, blue
herons stalking their prey in the swampy waters,
anhingas, cormorants, grebes, coots, egrets. "It seems
that half the bird population of North America stop
here one time or another," the guide remarks. As the
tram rolls by, you may be afforded an incredible
sight, a flock of birds suddenly rising up in a vast,
noisy cloud of color; then as suddenly, dipping down
Sto settle once more into the swamp.
If you are especially interested in other forms of
wildlife, you will no doubt spy alligators basking in
the newly constructed culverts, designed to improve
the water flow in the rainy season. Then there are
turtles and fish of various sizes and kinds, to watch
and identify.
Halfway through the trip you arrive at an observa-


tion tower, equipped with a gentle concrete ramp to
the top. Your climb will find its reward in the breath-
taking view of the original Everglades, as the entire
southern portion of Florida used to be.
To complete the loop, you ride across one of the
hammocks, home of the live oak, palm, gumbo
limbo, all decked out with vines, ferns and blooming
orchids in their season. You may catch a glimpse of a
rabbit or raccoon, or even a pair of white-tailed deer,
seemingly undisturbed by human intrusion.
Wildflower enthusiasts will find a variety of col-
ored blooms in summertime, accompanied however
by heat and mosquitoes. In winter, you will note
slender stalked white arrowhead growing out of the
water, spikes of deep blue pickerel-weed, various spe-
cies of water lilies, and perhaps even the small, bug-
eating yellow bladderwort.
All too soon, you will discover that the unusual

train trip is over, and you will realize how unusual
and enlightening the experience has turned out to be.
There are, however, other ways of experiencing
the park either by hiking or biking. In any case,
no matter what your mode of travel, try to take time
for a quiet stroll on the Bobcat Trail, a boardwalk
close to the Visitors' Center. Just a mile or so from
the parking lot you will experience an almost perfect
escape from the noise and bustle of civilization. The
silence is only broken by the rustle of the grass in the
wind, the distant cry of a heron or the splash of feed-
ing fish. The experience in solitude is a brief, but a
never-to-be-forgotten one.
The Park rangers, trained guides, and other atten-
dants are hoping that your visit will bring home to
you the urgent need to save the Everglades. Just a few
years ago, in 1982, the Everglades was designated as

Congressman Tours Everglades -

U.S. Rep. E. Clay Shaw took a helicopter trip
over the Everglades this month with hopes of getting
answers about phosphates and nitrates that may
threaten the Everglades-ecosystem.
Shaw decided to take the trip after environmental
officials at federal hearings last May presented con-
flicting testimony about the levels of nitrates and
phosphates that the Everglades can safely absorb.
EPA officials say that current levels of phosphates
and nitrates do not threaten the Everglades.
But Michael Fineley, superintendent of everglades
National Park, said the current level of nitrates and
phosphates does seep into the ground near Lake Okee-
chobee, and then filter south.
Although not dangerous by themselves, the nutri-
ents encourage growth of cattails, which such more
oxygen from the water than do the sawgrasses they
replace. The lowered oxygen level, in turn, kills the
fish. With fewer fish swimming around, the wading
birds leave.
"We've got to stop this cycle before it gets out of
hand and ruins the Everglades' ecosystem," Shaw
said.
Shaw has been working with congressman Tom
Lewis, R-Palm Beach to develop legislation that
would require the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to
develop a simulation model of the Kissimmee- Okee-
chobee-Everglades ecosystem. The model would help
planners measure the effect of agricultural and com-
mercial development on the ecosystem, so that legis-
lators will be able to prevent detrimental
development.
The legislation has passed the House and is being
considered by the State.

one of a scant eight World Heritage sites. This
National Park is unique in that it is the only one ever
to be established solely to protect and preserve an eco-
system rather than a natural wonder.
This ecosystem is now an "endangered species",
threatening the very existence of South Florida as a
place of habitation, including not only the flora and
fauna, but our own species the human family -
as well.
Your visit to Shark Valley is bound to inspire and
motivate you. One of the Rangers put it this way:
"We are racing against time. If we don't pick up the
pace, what we lose is irreplaceable." Then he went on
to say, "It is our hope that each visitor to Shark
Valley will become an ally in the good fight"
Should you not already be part of that good fight,
I guarantee that after your visit, you will quickly
become a committed and spirited defender.

Worldwide cruisers sail for Lauderdale


The Seven Seas Cruising Association (SSCA); is
honoring its 36th Anniversary on Saturday the 26th
of November, 1988, at their Annual Meeting and
Party. The site of this year's party will again be the
Bahia Mar Resort, located on the Intracoastal Water-
way in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
SSCA, a non-profit corporation, is one of the
oldest international organizations totally devoted to
those individuals who cruise in small seagoing sail-
ing vessels around our great globe. In honor of the
36th Anniversary, many members will be traveling
great distances to attend the SSCA Annual Gathering.
The SSCA has announced their special banquet
speaker, Tania Aebi, who solo-circumnavigated in her
26' sloop, Varuna.
An all day Info-Rama, organized by Shane
O'Neill, has been planned for the morning and after-
noon of November 26th. The first speakers will be Al
and Beth Liggett who will give a slide presentation of
sailing aboard their 42" yacht Sunflower. They will
also have a panel of blue water sailors who will dis-
cuss and answer questions on all aspects of cruising.
During the Info-Rama there will be "Info-Tables" set
up covering many interesting items including: Ham
Radio, Medicine at Sea, Self-Steering, Refrigeration
and many other topics.
Those attending the SSCA Annual Family Gath-
erinig will include many circumnavigators and other
cruising folk with thousands of miles beneath their
keels. SSCA Cruising Stations around the world are
planning their own Annual Meetings in Washington
State, Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Annapolis, Hono-
lulu, San Diego, Australia, New Zealand, Panama,
Sri Lanka and in many Mediterranean ports.


SSCA, which began in Coronado, California, in
1952, publishes the monthly Commodores' Bulletin,
a 40-page publication which encourages serious cruis-
ing endeavors and has carried on their "Clean Wake"
tradition for 36 years! The letters in the Bulletin carry
firsthand, up-to-date, reports on worldwide voyages.
SSCA also publishes a Mediterranean cruising guide,

Newport, RI While the 60-foot catamaran,
Stars & Stripes was busy winning yachting's coveted
America's cup in September, another multihull was
winning the first officially sanctioned U.S. profes-
sional sailing event, in Newport, Rhode Island.
The 40-foot trimaran, Eagle Premier, skippered by
Steve Black, bested stiff competition from a fleet of
offshore multihulls to win the first annual Graind
Prix. The two-day event was the first sailing event in
the U.S. to be officially sanctioned by the Unites
State Professional Sailing Association (USPSA).
Black, of Newport, garnered first-place honors in
all but one of the five races held in brisk sailing con-
ditions in Narragansett Passage. He was closely pur-
sued by second-place finisher, Nat Bryant, of Marion,
Mass., sailing the 33-foot trimaran, Maggie Rae. A
three-way-tie for fifth place was further evidence of a
closely matched performance by the fleet of catama-

awarded to the top 10 Grand Prix finishers.
Black, former executive director of the United
States Yacht Racing Union (USYRU), said, "We
couldn't have asked for better sailing conditions for
the first officially sanctioned pro sailing event in this
country. The shifting winds presented us with real
tactical challenges, and there was some tremendous
completion out there. With such skilled participatns
and the support of corporate America, the sport of
professional sailing is off to a flying start and is here
to stay."
The Grand Prix received the official pro-
sanctioning by the United States Professional Sailing
Association (USPSA), which was established in early
1988 by the USYRU to serve the needs and address
the emerging sport of pro sailing.
The next officially sanctioned U.S. pro sailing
event will be The Ultimate Yacht Race, consisting of
both mono- and multihulls, taking place in New
London, Conn., on October 9-26, 1988.

Going, going, gone...


by Marcia S. Alson
On Saturday, August 21st, 36 boats ranging from
a 14' Jon Boat to a 1987, 37-foot Midnite Express
Racer were practically given away. Actually they were
auctioned off at the Florida Marine Patrol (FMP)
Boats & Vehicles Public Auction in Fort Lauderdale.
This public auction is held by the Florida Marine
Patrol and includes State of Florida surplus vehicles
and equipment. It takes place once or twice a year at
the FMP Shop located within Port Everglades.
Although similar auctions are held around the state
selling everything from automobiles to heavy con-
struction equipment, Broward county is the only place
designated to sell boats through the FMP.
The process of buying at an auction is fun, easy,
and can be financially rewarding. Items are available
for public viewing the day before and the morning of
the actual event. In order to participate in the bidding
process, all you need do is sign up for a bidder's
number. These numbers have to be registered to the
same person that will have title to the boat or
vehicle.
Your bidder's number is given to you on a card-
board bid card. You use this card by raising it in the
air to be spotted by the auctioneer during the bidding
process. A sound truck is driven from one boat or
vehicle to the next with the auctioneer on board con-
ducting the sale. To help you make sure you are bid-
ding on the right item, a red flag is placed on the mer-
chandise currently under bid.
Items are sold as is, where is, and with any faults
or defects therein. The item purchased immediately
becomes the responsibility of the purchaser at the
time it is "knocked down" by the auctioneer. A cash
deposit of 25% of the selling price or a check accom-
panied by a Bank Letter of Credit is required on sale
day with final payment expected by the end of the fol-
lowing business day.
More than 500 bidders and at least an equal
number of spectators braved the intermittent rain to
participate in this most recent event. All 36 boats, 6
boat trailers, and 50 pallets of engines and engine
parts were sold. In addition to the marine items rang-

ing from a 1947 motorhome to a 1981 BMW and
eight 1986 Harley-Davidson motorcycles were sold.
The boats, vehicles, and equipment (174 items
total) were supplied by such agencies as the Florida
Marine Patrol, Florida Highway Patrol, Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission, Department of
Law Enforcement, and the Department of Drivers
Licenses.
According to Thomas L. Garner, auctioneer and
president of First Coast Auction & Realty, Inc. the
firm responsible for handling the auction for the state,
this entire auction is set-up and designed around boat
sales. The boats, trailers, motors, and other FMP
equipment are set-up first and then the vehicles and
other items are brought in if space is available.
Many of the confiscated boats for sale have been
used by the FMP on their work force. Garner summed
it up by saying "you have to have a fast boat to catch
a fast boat."
Roger D. McKenzie, equipment and disposal spe-
cialist for the State of Florida division of motor pool
explained how these vessels wound up on the auction
block. "These boats are confiscated by the FMP when
found in violation of the law. After litigation is clear
and the court case is settled, the boat is turned over to
the FMP and sold as surplus equipment."

Broward's in/out dry storage facilities


by Marcia S. Alson
Boat owners have many options available to them
in regards to where they keep their boat. One of the
most secure and convenient locations is an "In and
Out" storage facility.
Keeping a boat in an inside area out of the water
has many benefits. One of the most important is that
deterioration from the weather is controlled, and in
addition, bottom painting is kept to a minimum.
Storing a boat out of the sun and water can greatly
increase its resale value. Also, storage in an enclosed
building reduces the chance of theft.
The procedure for storing a boat at most in and
out facilities throughout Broward County is basically
the same. When you are ready to use your boat, just
let the marina know and they will put it in the water
at the designated time. On busy weekends it is best.to
give them at least a half an hour notice (a call before
leaving the house) but at other times you can just
show up. They can even have your boat waiting for
you if you want to leave in the wee hours of the
morning for a fishing trip as long as you let them
know before closing of the previous business day.
One in and out per day is included in the storage rate.
Boats are stored on shelves, usually four boats
high. When notice is received to ptt a boat in the
water, it is located using a number or letter system
similar to a parking garage or apartment complex.
Large capacity fork lifts, usually 15,000 pounds, then
pull out the boat from its shelf and carry it to the
water's edge. There it is lowered into the water and
taken off the forks, ready to go.
Upon returning from your adventures out on the
water, hoses are available to wash off the boat. Dock
space varies from one facility to the next, but they all
have an area for loading/unloading your gear and per-
haps even doing some minor repairs or fish cleaning.
You may elect to have the boat removed from the
water upon your departure or to leave it in for future
use. All hulls are rinsed by the marina staff before the
boats are placed back on their shelf.
The concept at all in and out storage facilities is
the same, what differs is the location, atmosphere,
and services available. These factors will affect the
decision as to which marina is best for you.
A survey was taken of the in and out storage facil-
ities in Broward County. The accompanying chart
includes various specifications relating to these facili-
ties. The following is a location guide for each
marina.
Dry Marina is Fort Lauderdale's largest and one of
the longest established dry storage facilities in the
area. It is located inside Port Everglades on the shel-
tered waters of the FP&L discharge canal.
Everglades Marina and Intracoastal Marine Ser-
vice, both located off the Intracoastal just north of the
17th Street Causeway bridge, and Dry Marina have
the closest ocean access via the Port Everglades ship
channel.
Further south, along the Dania Cut Off Canal is
located Harbour Towne Marina, another long esta-
blished facility located next to the popular watering
hole Tubgoat Annies. Continuing west up the canal
is American Rack & Stack, the county's newest stor-
age facility with space for 240 vessels. Continuing
up the canal, just past the 1-95 overpass is Thunder-
boat Marina. Thunderboat is currently under expan-
sion and is expected to soon be the county's largest in
and out storage facility.
Along Fort Lauderdale's picturesque New River in
downtown is the Riverfront Marina. The Riverfront
Marina includes Shirttail Charlie's restaurant, a pool
with patio bar, and a band on the weekends. Further

up the South Fork of the New River, just past 1-95 is
Jackson Marine center with a new building and plenty
of dock space.
For those folks living further north, Marina Mar
is located on the Intracoastal Waterway about midway
between Port Everglades and Hillsboro Inlet. Marina
Mar is the oldest storage facility in Fort Lauderdale
and is off Oakland Park Blvd. next to popular Durty
Nelly's, Shooter's, Bootleggers and Joseph's.
In Pompano Beach are Pompano Marina, a new
facility off Lake Santa Barbara, and Hidden Harbor at
the end of the Caliban Canal. Both have convenient
ocean access through the Hillsboro Inlet.
All of these locations offer repair services but to
differing degrees. Some have a few mechanics on duty
while others offer full sales and service centers. Most
let boat owners do minor work on their own vessels
in the water if dock space and insurance coverage
permits.

Some things to consider when shopping around
for a place to store your boat: Price, which varies
depending on location, amenities, and services offered.
Some marinas have a flat per foot price per month
while others use a formula considering length, beam,
and height. Most places have a minimum one month
stay, while others have a longer contract.
When your boat is locked in the enclosed build-
ing, it is very safe from vandals which is not neces-
sarily the case if left in the water overnight. Check to
see if the facility offers 24-hour security guard if you
plan to leave your boat in the water over night, or
intend to pick it up or drop it off before or after busi-
ness hours. Also check on what type of fire sprinkler
system is used in the building and whose insurance
covers what in case of fire or theft.
So depending upon your budget, where you live,
and the type of boating you do, there is a large selec-
tion of in and out storage facilities available.

IRAY'S UPHOLSTERY


Miami-Nassau-Miami Searace planned


Miami, Florida The world's longest non-stop
and most prestigious offshore powerboat race has had
a baby!
A 110-mile round trip event from Miami to the
Bahamas' Gun Cay and return for smaller 27 to 34
foot hulls has been added to the October 15, third
annual Miami-Nassau-Miami Searace format, accord-
ing to race founder-director, John Crouse.
The smaller boats will start shortly after the main
fleet leaves for Nassau but will turn south of where
the big boat fleet makes its turn north of Bimini in
the 364.3-mile run to Nassau and back.
"We've had considerable interest from boat owners
and drivers who want to be part of such a famous
event but don't have the equipment or fuel capacity to
the full distance."
"When one of the teams, the Scopetta brothers
John and George said their firm would put up the first
$5,000 co-sponsorship money, we decided to give the
project the green light," Crouse said.
The Searace Committee may strike an untapped
bonanza with the new move, appealing to dozens of
U.S. and possibly some foreign Sportsman, Stock,
Pro-Stock and Modified classes for the new race
which will operate under the main event's overall
safety and communications umbrella.
At $2,500, the Searace "100's" entry fee will be

Miami event.
Crouse says he will use the same free-for-all
format for the small boats that has proven so success-
ful for the main event featuring an overall cash prize
available to all contestants based on a percentage of
the total entry fees collected.
"Should we get 20 boats we probably would have
the largest purse ever offered to smaller offshore
classes with $15,000 going to the winner, $7,500 for
second and $5,000 to third place,' Crouse said.
OPBRA president John Kenyon, an offshore
racing safety specialist, will assist Searace race rescue
director Vance Irick, in keeping an eye on the Searace
"100" fleet
Smaller boats may still run in the longer race
where the limits are 28' to unlimited length if they
meet safety requirements and pay the addition fee.
All racers must provide for their own refueling
although arrangements are now being made with a
major race fuel source for special rates and a central
refueling location in the Miami area.
