World windsurfing regatta
The top windsurfers from over 30 different coun-
tries will be converging on Fort Lauderdale's South
Beach to compete in two disciplines seeing who is
the best in the world.
The First Annual World Production Boardsailing
Championship and Festival '88 will be one of the
lead events in Winterfest this year, from December
third to eleventh.
The Championship is a series of windsurfig races
to be held in the challenging ocean conditions of Fort
Lauderdale beach. Over 400 windsurfers are expected --
160 to the invitational and 250 to the open
"The term 'festival' is used as there will be other
boardsailing-related activities on the beach to entertain
beach-goers and spectators," said one of the regatta
organizers and local windsurfer Peter McNaughton.
Events planned include: simulator lessons, bikini
fashion shows, rowing contests, tug-of-wars and
windsurfing equipment displays.
McNaughton and his boardsailing colleagues
worldwide view the Championship with th4 prestige
of the "America's Cup" of windsurfing. Theregatta is
sanctioned internationally by the World Boirdsailing
Association, headquartered in Munich, Germany; and
nationally by the United States Boardsailing Associa-
tion and the United States Yacht Racing Union. The
Greater Fort Lauderdale Boardsailing Association will
serve as local host club.
There will be course and slalom races with men
and women racing and scored in separate divisions
determining overall champions. A separate exhibition
race, which shall be scored apart from and not be
counted towards the overall scoring, a 18-20 mile
long distance race, may be held, time and weather per-
mitting. There will be a special master's class for
those male competitors who have reached their 35th
birthday on or before December 7, 1988.
"Such an upbeat event as the World Boardsailing
Championship," organizer McNaughton said,
"enhances the image of Fort Lauderdale's sometimes
maligned beach." The excellent winter breezes, warm
water, ocean conditions, nice beach and the city's con-
venient amenities had Fort Lauderdale a natural choice
for this year's event, McNaughton went on.

The U.S. Olympic Sailing Center in
Miami's Kennedy Park north of Dinner Key is tenta-
tively operating under extensions to its "revocable
permit" which was granted by the city for a period of
one year. The facility has enjoyed considerable suc-
cess in fulfilling its mission of providing a base for
Olypmic sailors to train. The center's management
wants a long term lease so that needed improvements
can be made. However, city procedures must be fol-
lowed if such a lease is to be granted. In the event
less than three bidders apply, the arrangement with
the winning bidder would have to go to a city-wide
Alternatives are being sought to building a four-
lane bridge over the Dania Cut-off Canal
and connecting road through a quiet waterfront neigh-
borhood, (see "Waterfront Neighborhood fights devel-

The Broward County Planning Council has delayed
action until December 1, on FLorida Power and
Light's request for a road connecting Tram Road to
Griffin at Southwest 30 Avenue to service Allandco's
proposed 275-acre industrial and office park, Port 95

alternatives that would not require widening the road,

Imports may foul
Last June, following implementation of the state
rule to ban sale of blue and white marlins, sailfish
and spearfish in Florida, the Florida Marine Patrol
raised a question about enforcement of the rule since
black and striped marlin are imported, mostly in loin
form making it difficult to identify those species from
the banned species could be imported disguised as
black or striped marlin.
The recently approved federal law does not pro-
hibit imports form waters outside the management
plan area, but requires's ich imports to be accompa-
nied by specific documentation. However, that section
of the rule may be delayed indefinitely since the
Office of Management and Budget refused to approve
the documentation form.
Before 1986, billfish were not imported into the
U.S., but inq 1986, 7,900 pounds of billfish were
imported from Ecuador. In 1987, 434,000 pounds
were imported from Ecuador, 2,300 pounds from
Antigua and 200 pounds from Costa Rica.
Since the federal rule does not prohibit sale of
billfish from outside its management, area if docu-
mented, Florida's rule may be superseded.
This brings up another question.
When the U.S. closed its king mackerel fishery in
the Gulf of Mexico because the allowable quotas had
been harvested, Mexican fisherman stepped up their
landings (from what scientists believe is the same
stock that migrates off the U.S. in the Western Gulf)
to increase its exports to the U.S.
When the State of Florida closed its waters to har-
vesting of redfish a few years ago, neighboring states
that did not have a ban on sale, shipped their redfish
(presumably harvested from the-same stock) into
If the reason for closing a fishery or banning sale
.of a'species is because it is in trouble due to overhar-
vesting, is it right to allow imports of that species
during closure thus encouraging others to increase
harvesting pressure on that species in other areas in
order to reap profits?
As the U.S. trade deficit in seafood imports
increases ($4.1 billion in fiscal 1987), fishery man-
agement agencies must consider this issue.

I have a 48-foot boat with twin diesels and have had a
problem with one engine running hot and the other
normal. We had the gauges checked and they were
o.k. The water intake is clear no obstructions. The
thermostat is fine and the water pump impellor is
brand new. What next can I do to go further.
First, I would check out the heat exchanger, They do
clog up and have to be routed out or boiled clean.
Any good radiator shop can do this andgive you a
flow test. You can check out the salt water filter for a
gasket leak or sufficient water flow. A collapsed hose
under suction can restrict water flow. Air seeping in
can hold back on cooling, etc., etc. Your mechanic
can check to see if enough water is reaching your
engine to cool it.
Have an older boat with a generator and regulator
on each engine to charge batteries. One generator
charges about 30 amps and slowly drops down to
about five or six amps,, but the other stays at 30
amps. Both batteries are ned;, but the 30 amp charg-
ing bate.ry is losing water. The other is not. Should I
try reversing the batteries to check them or bring that
battery back to be checked out.

I've just run through $1500 on repairs to my out-
drive. I was gone for about three months and had boat
out of water. When I got back and-put the boat in the
water, it started fine, so I went for a little spin. Sud-
denly, a noise and my outdrive jumped and clanked. I
stopped dead in the water, was towed to a marina and
left my boat there to be checked and repaired after call-
ing me. Well, I got the boat back after $1500 repairs.
Gears were replaced, cracked housing and the
mechanic said the case was full of water and the gears
Were rusty, no lube in the bottom case. Could this be
, true? The boat was not in the water for three months.
I can sympathize with you on your outdrive
problem. I know of many outdrive repairs that cost a
lot. Those parts are expensive. The housing and gears
can run into big money. Good mechanics charge from
$30 to $40 per hour and rebuilding an outdrive takes
time, skill and special tools. If the seals or gaskets
leak and lubricant leaks out and water (especially salt
water) enters the gear and shift chambers, that is trou-
ble. I would advise you to check the lube in the lower
drive regularly, lubing all grease fittings and oil all
cables, especially if the boat is stored. Drain and
replace all grease if you notice any water or sludge.
Check your engine the same way.

I'm having a problem trying to synchronize my twin
engine boat. With both throttles on full advance, one
engine reads higher on the tachometer than the other.
I have to pull back on my throttle to make my since'
light work right and both tach's to be even. Any
The first and easiest thing is to check the throttle
linkages making sure they haven't loosened up atthe
connections. Next, I would check my tachometers for
calibration of upper and lower stations to make sure
they are o.k. Then, check the electrical connections to
your switches. If you can get your tachs to read cor-
re, y with your throttle settings, your synchronizer
should work properly. That is, if the unit is not dam-
aged or defective.
My zincs are disappearing monthly. My lines to
my boat have been checked. My boat has a polarity
switch which read negative. My dock recepticle is
wired correctly and my boat is still eating up zincs!
Someone near you or across from you is wired
wrong and you are being affected. Check you neigh-
bors boats or move for a month. See then if your

I have a Princess electric stove that is developing
a white glow on the large burner. The other burners
work o.k.. Could it be my generator is putting out
too much voltage?
You should have a volt meter on the electric board
on your boat This will show your dock voltage and
when you switch over to your generator voltage. Let
me put it to you this way, I think a burner with a
white spot is ready to burn out and I would buy a new
element to replace it. You say the others are o.k.; so,
I would just replace that one.
I thought you would like to know that the prob-
lem I had with my diesel running erratic and slowing
up was exactly what you told me to look for. After
careful checking for air leaks, I found a cracked filter
top that allowed air to enter my fuel line. New filter
top installed and my engine is running swell again. I

Inlet Authority looking to incr
The Hillsboro Inlet is a vital passageway for boat-
ing traffic coming in and out of thelntracoastal Water-
way in North Broward County.
This vital link to the sea is in constant need of
.dredging to ensure safe passage of vessels through its
Recently, proceeds from the Lighthouse Point
fishing tournament went to the Hillsboro Inlet
Authority to keep the inlet open.
Steve Nowatka, chairman of the tournament,
stated, "If they didn't keep dredging it, the soil, sand
and other deposits from canal runoff would make it
Frank Rysavy, chairman of the Hillsboro Inlet
improvement and Maintenance District (Authority),
related that the inlet is being used by larger and larger
vessels which exceed the original design and capacity
of the project. As a result, the Inlet Authority has
begun work on a conceptual design which will allow
the channel to be cut to a depth of 18 feet. The inlet
is one of the natural outlets to the Atlantic Ocean and
has been modified to its current mean low water depth
of ten feet.
The Hillsboro Inlet Improvement and Maintenance
District was established in the early 1950's to main-
tain the channel area of the Hillsboro inlet, and to
place the sand retrieved on the south side of the inlet
onto the beach of Pompano.
One of the tricky problems faced regularly with
the inlet is knowing when dredging is needed and
having the equipment and the ability to dredge at a
Rysavy related, "We dredge as required. Due to the
shape of the coastline, there are times when we get no
sand during a storm, and other days when 5,000 to
6,000 yards of sand get into the channel and have to
be taken out."
The Hillsboro Inlet Authority chairman com-
plained that boaters traversing the inlet at the wrong
hullspeed have damaged the dredging equipment from
the impact of their wakes.
Another function of the Hillsboro Inlet is that it
serves as a drainage outlet for the Northwest quadrant
of Broward County -- runoff from cities like Tamarac
and Coral Springs travels into local canals which
eventually drain into the inlet.
Dock rental debate continues
A dockage rental ban in residential Fort Lauderdale
should remain and be better enforced, say the vast
majority of waterfront neighborhood civic
associations in that city. At the November 2nd
meeting of the city's Marine Advisory Board's
subcommittee studying the issue, representatives
from the affected areas voted 15 to 4 in favor of
advising the Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board
that the city should better enforce existing ordinances
which forbid the rental of docks in residential (R-1
Community groups fronting primarily along the
North Fork of New River opposed the majority view,
suggesting instead that R-l property owners be
':allowed to rent their docks.
Experimental dock rentals could be allowed in R-1
zones, proposed Riverside Park representative, Sonny
Irons, leaving R-1A areas rental free. It could be for a
trial two-year period, said Irons.
Sailboat Bend's Dave Brenner, warned the rest of
the sub-committee that there is not enough available
legal dockage to handle all the boats expelled by
enforcement of existing dockage laws. This would
negatively impact the marine industry at large, fears
Those voices, though, were drowned out by a
chorus of "No change," from Las Olas Isles, Coral
SRidge, Shady Banks and twelve other waterfront
neighborhoods who wanted, the city to enforce the cur-
rent dock rental prohibition.
Dennis Nusser of Victoria Park said, the city's
Code Enforcement office would do a better job polic-
ing residential docks than the city's Dockmaster's
office who does it now.
The full Marine Advisory Board will consider the
sub-committee recommendation at the board's Decem-
ber 1st meeting, 7:00 p.m., Fort Lauderdale City

Rysavy commented that with the population
explosion and concrete expansion in Northwest Bro-
ward, drainage has become increasingly important
"For example," Rysavy commented, "if there is a
major Northeasterly type rainstorm, something that
dumps six to ten inches of rain within a 24-hour
period, drainage problems will be severe." Ordinary
storms result in a six-knot current at the AIA bridge
in Pompano, which means small boats will have nav-
igation difficulties through narrow areas.
Rysavy hopes that the combination of widening
and deepening the Hillsboro Inlet will help solve nav-
igational problems through its waters.

Religiously pursuing a dockominium
by Remy Mackowski
The building of souls has taken a decidedly literal
turn in the congregation of Reverend Timothy Dob-
bins. The young pastor has an innovative plan to re-
surrect his parish's flagging numbers -- he' going to
build a marina ( see "Editor's log", page 7, May
1988, Waterfront News).
"The church has a 1-acre lot fronting the New
River," says Dobbins, pastor of the Calvary Presby-
terian Church, "and I mentioned to a neighbor that we
had real need for that property to pay for itself."
Dobbins' neighbor relayed the story of a friend in
Boston who had made a very lucrative investment in
dockominiums, personal boat slips. "The more we
explored the possibility, the more feasible the idea be-
came," says Dobbins.
That was over a year and a half ago. Today, fol-
lowing preliminary planning and estimating, the pro-
ject has a board which is steering the proposal
through the permitting process.
"We expect getting approval from all the neces-
sary regulatory agencies to take up to a year and a
half," Dobbins says, "Once that's done, it should take
only a couple months to build the project."
And if all goes as planned, in early to mid 1990
Dobbins will unveil the Calvary Presbyterian
Church's mini-marina, complete with eight 20-foot-
wide berths. Dobbins estimates each slip will be ca-
pable of accommodating a a 55 to 60-foot boat
"At this point we're still researching a competi-
tive price for the slips," says Dobbins, "but we know
it will be over $100,000 each". And the clinking of
those coins will be a welcome sound in the 30-year
old church's treasury.
"We've got about a hundred members right now,"
says Dobbins. "That's less than half what the congre-
gation used to be." Bolstering the size of his flock
will be Dobbins' prime objective upon successful
completion of the dockominium project.
STo that end he has plans to activate a day-care cen-
ter, enhance a current program that helps needy fami-
lies break the cycle of poverty and increase the scope
of his church's involvement with the community by
broadening outreach programs, church activities and
It's a large-scale effort that has the support of both
parishioners and the community. "The church has
gone out of their way to help this neighborhood."
says Jack Malloy, a local resident. "They've opened
their doors for meetings donated their resources and
helped people. What's best for this church, is best for
But not everyone's so enthusiastic about Dobbins'
methods. "I don't think dockominiums are an appro-
private use of residential property," says Austin For-
man, a neighborhood landowner. "A marina would
double up on the Area's services."
Dobbins disagrees. He claims some people are un-
der misconceptions about the project. "This isn't go-
ing to be a full-scale marina," Dobbins says. "Every-
one I've explained the project to has been very
positive about it."
That includes the neighborhood Tarpon River Ci-
vic Association, which passed a resolution endorsing
the dockominium project. There's still $250,000 in
building costs to be negotiated, but Dobbins is gain-
ing confidence and momentum from local patronage.
"Jack Latona, an attorney, and George Ross, an
architect, have donated their services," he says, "and
other people have come forward, including one very

The position taken by the City of Boynton
Beach is that the bridge must be builtat the new site
to breathe new life into the downtown. They argue
that the project is necessary for a straight line of traf-
fic movement to the beach, and that the DOT should
have the right over the placement of that bridge.
George Hunt, Boynton Beach Assistant City Man-
ager, maintains that Boynton Beach Boulevard is a
major artery for the area, and is one of the largest
east-west thoroughfares in Palm Beach County which
doesn't have access to AIA.
Hunt continued that the City of Boynton Beach is
against constructing a replacement bridge at the exist-
ing Ocean Avenue site because it will "permanently
snarl traffic to Boynton Beach because it requires an
L-shaped, three-signal light turn to reach AIA and the
Hunt adds, "Snarling traffic would satisfy Ocean
Ridge, but it won't benefit the residents of Boynton
in their efforts to travel to and from the beach."
The City is also conceded about the safety of the
present bridge at Ocean Ave if the case continues to
drag on in court. Boynton Beach city officials say the
present bridge is deri'wrring.
Mr. Hunt noted "that beaches in Florida are posi-
tive attractions, and the idea that we would be trying
to keep our residents off the beaches by not allowing
this project is ounter-productive."
At the February hearing, Hugh MacMillan, the
attorney who has represented Dr. Lopez-Tones and the
town of Ocean Ridge in the dispute, will attempt to

prove that there is in fact no valid reason to build the
project on Boynton Beach Boulevard when there is
already an existing bridge on Ocean Avenue in
The City of Boynton Beach and DOT will argue
that the bridge is vitally important to the area and that
proper traffic guidelines necessitate that the bridge be
constructed in a straight line to the beach as are most
other bridge projects of this type.
So, the battle lines have been drawn and the argu-
ments seem to have merit on both sides, as a hearing
officer will soon decide whether the Department of
Transportation or the citizens of Ocean Ridge have
the power to decide where this bridge may or may not

The sea is their home, divers are just visiting
By Bob Allen
Approaching this part of the Great Abaco Island
from the air, the expanse of sea marsh must have
given rise to its name. These shallow-water pools
must be excellent for nurturing sea life.
As the plane touched-down on March Harbour's
air strip in the Bahamas, my mind reviewed the past
year. Twelve months earlier two friends and I had
snorkled some reef off Nassau. What we had seen and
experienced had infected us with a rapture for the deep.
We vowed to meet again in 1988 as certified scuba
divers. The year had passed with each of us complet-
ing the training.
After landing, we taxied to the inn and stowed our
gear. With a map of the island, we located Mr. Skeet
LaChance's dive shop. LaChance had just returned
from an afternoon's dive. I arranged for two dives the
Waking before dawn, I bore witness to the moon
yielding its shadowy domain to the sun's first golden
rays. As the moonbeams which moments before had
danced on the wave motion disappeared, the sun's
glow turned the water from a dark grey to a silvery
turquoise. The smell of the ocean, the sights of the
morning and sounds of roosters crowing I knew the
day would be an adventure to remember.
We ate a good, filling breakfast and assembled at
Skeet LaChance's dive shop in Boat Harbour. Know-
ing that ocean diving would hold greater adventures,
more varied marine life and graver dangers than diving
in Missouri's quarries and rivers, I was filled with an
-I realized that I was about to enter a vast world to
which I was a mere brief visitor, a world whose
inhabitants were often larger than I. Fortunately for
me, Skeet is a very experienced divemaster who
watches the pulse of his guests. His manner is gener-
ally silent; yet, he displays a great attentiveness to
* the diver's well-being. He does not embarrass his
divers should they be in need of assistance. In most
cases, he lends help prior to the diver knowing that he
needs it. His magnificent handling of detail gave me
Great comfort during the dive.
As we headed toward the first dive site, one of the
snorkelers in our dive party asked about sharks.
Skeet's only comment was, '"Sharks live in the
ocean," This economy of words reflected a much
deeper attitude and understanding of the ocean than I
When we arrived at the dive site, Skeet gave us
detailed orientation. The reef was inside a protected
undersea park. Coral formations began about five feet
below the surface with a total water depth of about 30
feet. The coral was riddled with underwater caves
which we could swim through.
The divers descended to the sandy bottom, the
snorkelers started swimming on the surface, then
Skeet joined the divers. Once the divemaster was dn
the bottom, we divers approached the reef.
About 15 feet from the coral a large grouper swam
out and greeted Skeet. Apparently, Skeet occasionally
brought food to the grouper and the two had become
friends. We got to pet the grouper and it accompanied
us the entire dive.
Being new to ocean diving and to large fish, the
grouper frightened me a couple of times when it
would glide up behind me and nudge me. I realized
then if a predator wanted to have a taste of me, I was
in its element and could do little to stop it. For some
strange unknown reason this knowledge comforted
As I began to enjoy the dive, I watched Skeet's
technique and worked to adapt to his diving style. He
would swim in a very relaxed position with his hands
behind him between his back and air tank. Once
achieving neutral buoyancy, one can inhale or exhale
to raise or lower one's body as he glides around and
through the corals. This style conserves air, energy
and coral. With one's hands out of the way and buoy-
ancy under control there is little reason to touch the
The beauty of the reef and its inhabitants had
inspired me to learn scuba diving a year ago. The
living colors and the intricate designs of this watery
world were beyond my imagination. Unless one has
snorkled or dived, one can not know the vibrance of a
coral head. The best photograph can capture only a
small, limited portion of its beauty. It is true adven-
ture to swim 20 feet below the waves and experience
an exotic world of tropical colors and life.
As we surfaced from the dive, Skeet talked about
how there had been 16 large ocean creatures, who had
come to trust man too much. They would greet the

dive boats and were often fed by the divers. One day
these large rays, barracuda, eels and groupers were
slaughtered by a poacher. As he related this story,
Skeet was saddened by it. I was angered over the vio-
lence of this act against the sea and its inhabitants.
It was then that I slowly began to appreciate
Skeet's understanding of the sea: "Sharks (and other
marine life) live in the ocean." The sea is their envi-
ronment, man, only briefly, visits their domain. Yet,
it is man who can, coldly and with forethought, cal-
culate the destruction of the ocean's creatures.
As we head back into port, I could not but help to
wish the grouper we had met a long life and a healthy
fear of man.

Florida divers break multiple deep dive record
By Bryan Brooks
Two Florida scuba instructors made 20 deep dives
to over 100 feet within a six-hour period at Ward
Sink near Tampa, Florida, on October 17th of this
year. These dives, they say, break a U.S. Navy record
of 11 dives to 100 feet within a 20-hour period. The
divers, Dick Oberlies, 43, and Steve Hoffman, 28,
stated that neither of them suffered any ill effects from
the record dives.
Dick Oberlies was the coach for female diver
Marty Dunwoodie, who set the women's depth record
of 345 feet last year.
Hoffman said that they were trying to contact the
Guinness Book of World Records in an attempt to
have their dives listed officially.
Hoffman related that he does not encourage other
sport diver to try any type of deep diving without spe-
cial training, as he admits that this can be extremely
dangerous. He cites one of the reasons for their suc-
cess in this attempt is the special training and tech-
niques learned from former World Deep Diving
Record holder on compressed air, Hal Watts, at his
Professional Scuba Association, in Orlando, Florida.
The deepest dive made on their dive profile was
160 feet, with the shallowest being 100 feet. Hoff-
man related that according to the Navy Dive Tables,
their dive profile would have required over 14 hours of
decompression stops, which they didn't make.
A police officer from Plant City, trained in CPR,
was on the scene with oxygen as a part of the support
system, which included two safety divers. Hoffman
stated that although the nearest recompression cham-
ber was about 70 miles away, they were in contact
with emergency sources, who could have a helicopter
on'the scene within minutes should there be an
When asked the reason for such an attempt, Hoff-
man said they did it for the excitement and challenge,
plus the sense of personal satisfaction when complet-
ing the dives safely. As scuba instructors, he says
both he and Dick Oberlies were aware of the inherent
Hoffman said again, however, that he felt that
their special training gave them a better than good
chance of safely accomplishing this record. Used
during the dives were the latest in dive computers,
which they claim was also paramount in their
Dr. James Loewenherz, a medical specialist in the
field of barotrauma, was contacted in Miami. When
asked about his feelings concerning the deep dives, he
said that to attempt this, he feels, is outrageous.
As a diving doctor operating a Miami recompres-
sion chamber, he stated, "I've seen divers with as
little as a 70 foot dive for a a thirty minute profile
become sick and need extensive medical help, some
becoming permanently paralyzed."
He admits that the record is possible but that it is
a foolish gamble for no real purpose.
Dr. Loewenherz also felt that if the divers were
using oxygen to decompress with that the oxygen
would only mask the problem of excess nitrogen in
the body. Diver Steve Hoffman said that they didn't
use oxygen, and they didn't decompress.
Dr. Loewenherz said the intended dives to 100 feet
would leave the divers attempting this record deeply
in a nitrogen debt, risking permanent physical damage
or even death.
When asked if he would be willing to attend such
a record attempt, Dr. Loewenherz said that he would
not participate because of the extreme danger
He felt that these divers could be compared to test
pilots, who push the limits of man's endurance.
Because of the lack of logistical and medical support
at their disposal, though, the divers were more at risk.
Test pilots, Dr. Loewenherz said, always have the
latest in medical technology close at hand for
After the first 10 or 11 dives, Dr. Loewenherz
says, the divers could start having decompression
sickness symptoms suchas tingling, or the pins and
needles feeling. Diver Steve Hoffman said that they
didn't experience any of those symptoms.
The current World Deep Diving Record Holder,
Neal Watson, whose record was set in the late 1960's
at 437 feet using compressed air, felt that the dives
might not have any meaning in the 80's sport diving
"The concept and training now is completely dif-
ferent than when I did my dive," said Watson. How-
ever, admiring the two men for their effort, Neal said
that if they did it for their own feeling of personal
accomplishment, he could not fault them. This, he
realizes, is totally taboo in the sport diving world
today, and for good reason, diver safety.

Boat parades dominate December
Four boat parades are scheduled for southeastern
Florida prior to Christmas Miami's Winter Reflec-
tions on the Bay (December 3), Winterfest Boat
Parade in Fort Lauderdale (10th), Pompano Beach
Holiday Boat Parade (11th) and Boca Raton's Winter
Fantasy on the Water (17th). These holiday events
showcase yachts decorated with lights, props and cos-
tumed crews. They may be unique in the world. Last
year's Fort Lauderdale parade was on primetime
The boat parade season starts with a splash in
Miami's Biscayne Bay. On Saturday evening, Decem-
ber 10th, 100 vessels dressed up for the holidays will
sail north on the Intracoastal Waterway from Bayfront
Park/Bayside Marketplace to Haulover Park. Vessels
will pass in review at Haulover Park Marina where
they will be judged in 20 award categories including
"Best Overall Decorated Vessel" and "Best Use of
Light and Sound" for this 3rd Annual Winter Reflec-
tions on the Bay.
The following Saturday Fort Lauderdale's Winter-
fest Boat Parade will get underway in Port Everglades
and cruise north through the ICW to Lake Santa Bar-
bara. 3000 bleacher seats ($15 per person) are to be
set up strictly for viewing the parade from the Birch/
Las Olas Parking Area, 5 10:30 p.m..
Pompano Beach started this area's tradition of boat
parades over a quarter century ago. The 26th annual
Holiday Boat Parade will begin at dark on Sunday,
December 11th on the Pompano stretch of the ICW.
Having both the Fort Lauderdale and Pompano
parades back-to-back on the same weekend has seemed
to benefited both parades and allows those boaters
who want to be in both events to do so.
Finally, Boca Raton will host the Winter Fantasy
on the Water, Saturday, December 17th on the Intra-
coastal at dark.
December 2nd is the deadline for entering the annual Boat Parade route are eligible to participate. Entries

Waterfront News December 1988
By James E. Sullivan
For the most part ice in the sea consists of either
sea ice formed by the freezing of top layers of the.
ocean, or icebergs originating from glaciers or conti-
nental ice sheets. This ice is of direct concern to the
navigator because it restricts and sometimes controls
the movement of a vessel.
The first sign of freezing sea ice is an oily opaque
appearance of the water. It then becomes a thick
Ssoupy slush which forms into a layer with a thick-
ness of four or five inches. This sheet of ice will con-
tinue to grow but will seldom become more than four
to seven feet thick the first winter. Sea ice attached to
the shore is called fast ice and those portions fronting
the sea are glaciers.
Unlike sea ice a layer of two inches of fresh water
ice is brittle but strong enough to support the weight
of a heavy man. In contrast, the same thickness of
newly formed sea ice will support no more than 20
pounds of weight although as it ages sea ice does
.become harder and more brittle.
When a glacier flows into the open sea the force
of the water breaks off pieces and these float away as
icebergs. Parts of these may break off or calve to
form bergy bits (about the size of a house). Smaller
pieces (piano size) are called growlers because their
tubular holes give off a growling noise as they bob
up and down in the sea.
Icebergs have irregular shapes, the bulk beneath
the water averages from five to seven times the
exposed mass. Icebergs contain no salt and is suffi-
ciently fresh that its melt water is potable. In the
North Atlantic the largest source of icebergs is the
west coast of Greenland. Drifting with the Labrador
Current icebergs have been encountered south of Ber-
muda, off the Azores, and with a few hundred miles of
Great Britain before they have melted. The average
lifetime of a berg is three years. They are most
numerous during the spring. Icebergs seldom if ever
appear in the North Pacific Ocean since in this area
glaciers do not reach the open ocean coasts. When we
reflect on icebergs we consider the Titanic. '
On the 14th of April, 1912 the Royal Mail Ship
Titanic struck an iceberg and sank with the loss of
1513 lives. Cruising at 22knots (25 MPH) the look-
out spotted an iceberg dead ahead. A full turn to port
resulted in striking the iceberg with a glancing blow.
Although some ice chunks tumbled onto the weather
deck the collision was thought to be slight or a close
The liner had been constructed with 16 watertight
compartments and would float with any two ruptured,
however an underwater spur of ice ripped an immedi-
ate gash down her starboard side extending 300 feet
puncturing six of the forward compartments. She
could not survive this damage.
Strangely, had the lookout not been alert and
failed to report the iceberg to the bridge the Titanic
would not have sunk. The ship would have struck the:
berg head on crushing the bow and possibly the
second compartment but the 14 remaining watertight
units would have kept the Titanic afloat with a mini-
mum or no loss of personnel.

Sea turtles mistake balloons for jellyfish
Balloons do look like food to sea turtles. One of
the first studies to look at the effects of latex and
plastics on sea turtles show that turtles will choose to
eat balloons and the latex can stay,in their systems
for as long as three months.
Environmentalists have been concerned that sea
turtles will eat balloons and plastic bags, which can
resemble jellyfish -- a favorite turtle food. But there
has been no research on the effects of the materials on
the endangered sea turtles.
However, Professor Peter Lutz, chairman of the
Division of Biology and Living Resources at the UM
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science, has recently completed a study that shows
Marine Algae may aid

A special strain of marine algae produced the same
type of fatty acid present in fish oil omega-3, which
is said to reduce the risk of heart disease. This strain
is one of the more than 2,000 strains of marine blue/
green algae and photosynthetic bacteria that Professor
Akira Mitsui has collected and isolated in his

Mitsui's collection of marine blue/green algae and
photosynthetic bacteria is the largest in the world.
His most recent research projects include a study of

Department of Energy, and work with marine photo-
synthetic micro-organisms that fix nitrogen.
that sea turtles will eat balloons when given the
opportunity. His study also show that the latex can
remain in their digestive systems for a period of
three days to three months.
"We need more research to determine what
effect this has on the turtles," says Lutz. He says
plastics have been known to kill turtles by blocking
their digestive tract. But there may be more subtle
effects. Latex and plastics may change how turtles
digest nutrients in their food or alter the animals' salt

Lauderdale sailor rescues lost art
By Capt. Ed Wiser
Patti Sehi is no slave to indolence.Whether white-
water rafting over a 50' waterfall, establishing her
own business, or circumnavigating in her 44' Lafitte
cutter, she has packed a lot of adventure into her 44
years. Now she faces one of the most creative and art-
istically demanding objectives of her multifaceted
career resurrection of the ancient cosmetic art of
woodgraining and marbling.
The practice of imitating the appearance of wood
or marble on an inexpensive substructure is at least
two thousand years old.Originating in the villas and
public buildings of ancient Rome, graining involves
the painting of a surface to replicate the effect of more
exotic woods. Rather than attempting to represent
objects or designs, it is intended to make the underly-
ing material seem to be something other than what it
is. Seizing upon the skill of local artisans, the
Romans learned to make plaster look like marble and
to paint common woods to duplicate more expensive
The art and practical utilization of graining in con-
struction and decoration languished during the Dark
Ages and Medieval period but enjoyed a popular revi-
val in mansions of Renaissance Italy's powerful
trading and ruling families. It is a relatively common
characteristic found in buildings throughout Europe
dating from that time until the advent of the twentieth
century. In the United States, many examples can be
found in the antebellum homes and commercial struc-
tures of the South. Most frequently it consists of
painting an underlying surface of inexpensive, readily
available pine to look like oak, mahogany or more
valuable wood. Locally, good graining can be found
in the Villa Vizcaya in Miami where wood and
masonry are both treated to appear as different types
and colors of marble.
As a sailor of wide experience and a refinisher by
trade, Sehi was quick to grasp the potential this tech-
nique holds for the yachting industry and to apply it
in her work. "Almost every boat has an area where
woodwork has been damaged or turned black," she
observes. "Owners don't know what to do about it -
or didn't until now. It's a simple solution to an
aggravating problem, and it's inexpensive and
While closely guarding the secrets of her craft,
Sehi did offer several completed examples of wood-
graining for inspection. The results are impressive.
Starting with a section of brown masonite she has lit-
erally reproduced the color and grain of natural teak
and mahogany as faithfully as any portrait painter
captures the features of his human subject. Topped
with several coats of varnish, the imitation wood is
golden, luxurious, and beautifully grained. The intri-
guing fact is that almost any grain and color can be
matched to preexisting or adjacent materials. Thus,
water damaged areas on teak surfaces can be custom
treated to blend perfectly with the surrounding undam-
aged wood. No longer is it necessary to replace plank-
ing or cabinetry for purely cosmetic reasons.
Graining is not only for covering discolored wood.
It is of great value in repairing veneers which have
been sanded through to the core material, a common
problem in refinishing interiors constructed with teak
plywood. The cost of painting a new grain over the
area is a fraction of that of replacing the wood.
In any discussion of an unfamiliar craft like grain-
ing the initial inquiry is "How do you do it?". The
second is "Where did you learn it?" Sehi hedges on
answering both. Well aware that there is currently no
competition' for this niche in the industry, she is
determined to preserve her secrets and maintain her
monopoly for as long as possible. She did admit to
studying with an unnamed English gentleman in Cal-
ifornia who was taught by his grandfather.
Surprisingly, despite the obvious applications in
yacht repair and decor, there is widespread ignorance
of the process and its utility. In introducing her skills
to South Florida initial reaction from area boatyards
has been very positive. Yard owners and managers
have never been exposed to graining and have been
unaware of its usefulness in correcting cosmetic
defects. The major problem in gaining acceptance
locally has been this lack of understanding of the pos-
sibilities woodgraining presents. "Quite simply,"
says Schi, "no one ever considered the option of
painting a wooden replica."
She has recently completed work on the new 92'
Cheoy Lee motoryacht, Seascape, where she corrected
discoloration in interior paneling. Among other
projects, she is currently assisting in the restoration
of Michael J. Peter's classic yacht, Solid Gold,
reputed to be the oldest Broward afloat. Here a natural
golden teak finish had been marred by water seepage.
The darkened areas represented a relatively small
portion of an entire cabin side but contrasted sharply
with the rest of the wood spoiling the pleasing effect
of the varnished teak. Bleaching and sanding were of
limited help in alleviating the problem. By building
the colors back into the finish she was able to match
the original color of the wood and blend into the
VWoodgraining has been utilized in residential and
commercial construction for centuries and the student
of this art will find it in may noteworthy buildings
here and in Europe. Now its benefits are being offered
to the yachting community. "Owners take a great deal
of pride in their boats' appearance. They want it to be
right. I love my work and it gives me a great deal of
pleasure making it right"

22 Waterfront News December 1988 The Main Brace
Nautical books always a holiday hit
If you're still looking for holiday gifts for the
skipper and crew on your list, rest easy.
Nautical books are always a holiday hit, and the
publishing world has been cranking 'out nautical
books this fall at a fast pace.
You won't find all these on the shelf at every
bookstore, but a good nautical bookstore should have
most of them.
One such shop in Fort Lauderdale is Bluewater
Books & Charts on the 17th Street Causeway.
At the Waterfront News' request, this list was
compiled by owners Milt and Judy Baker and the crew
at Bluewater Books & Charts.
COFFEE TABLE BOOKS
The Superyachts. Volume I (1988) by Boat Inter-
national. $59.95. A lavish new volume provides the
reader an intimate tour of an impressive selection of
superyachts owned by some of the world's most suc-
cessful people. Lots of color and class.
The Legend of Chris-Craft by Jeffrey L. Roden-
gen. $49.95. The family and company that made run-
about and cabin cruiser household words has a fasci-
nating heritage, and it's all recounted in words and
pictures in this very readable new book by a Fort
Lauderdale author and his photojournalist wife. If
you liked The Real Runabouts, you'll love The
Legend of Chris-Craft.
Concordia Yawls the First Fifty Years by Peter
Gow et al. $125.00. This year marks the 50th anni-
versary of the famous Concordia yawl, and this 325-
page book was commissioned to commemorate the
event. Designed and edited by experts from Nautical
Ouarterly, it contains over 150 color images and
weighs 5 1/2 pounds, and it's been published in a spe-
cial limited edition. The book might better be called
"a hymn to the Concordia yawl."
Shipwrecks Along the Atlantic Coast by William
P. Quinn. $34.95. If shipwrecks fascinate you,
don't miss this book. From wooden sailing ships of
the 19th century to today's modem steel ships, this
volume documents shipwrecks all along the U.S. east
coast. Mostly black and white photographs, but
The Atlantic Crossing Guide edited by Philip
Allen. $29.95. For the skipper considering an Atlan-
tic crossing in either direction, this book is a must.
From proper crew and equipment to timing, routing
and provisioning, it's all here.
Street's Transatlantic Cruising Guide by ,Donald
M. Street, Jr. $30.00. Another look at crossing the
the Atlantic, this one by an author with seven cross-
ings in his wake. Unlike the Atlantic Crossing
Guide. this new book takes the cruiser off the beaten
paths to bays and harbors where the arrival of a yacht
is an infrequent and always welcomed event.
Yachting Guide to Bermuda edited by Edward,
Harris. $14.95. Aimed squarely at yachtsmen from
North America who plan to cruise to Bermuda, this is
the only current guide to cruising Bermuda waters.
This 1988 guide includes sections on planning a pas-
sage to Bermuda, timing, charts, weather, stores and
much more. Buy this one now to get your skipper
thinking about that Bermuda trip next summer.
Cruising Guide to Eastern Florida by Claiborne S.
Young. $21.95. The first cruising guide devoted
exclusively to the popular waters of Florida's east
coast and St, John's River, this book provides current
navigation data, depths, anchorages along the entire
shore, detailed marina evaluations, and shoreside

Boater's Photographic Chartbook to the Bahamas
by Air Nav Publications. $39.95. Beautiful color
aerial photography of the most popular anchorages in
the Bahamas, supplemented by reproductions of gov-
ernment and private charts of each. A total of 32
anchorages and channels are shown. A useful supple-
ment to the usual charts and cruising guides for the
Gentleman's Guide to Passages South by Bruce
Van Sant. $9.95. At last, a cruising guide that tells
the cruising sailor how to get from the Bahamas to
the Eastern Caribbean without beating his brains out.
It may look a bit primitive and home-made, but the
book provides very good (and hard-won) advice on
traveling the thorny path.
The Boat Maintenance and Repair Book by Tony
Meisel. $24.95. Billing itself as a one-volume ency-
clopedia for sail- and powerboat owners, this brand
new book by veteran boating writer Tony Gibbs
comes close to living up to its title. Nicely done
with very good illustrations.:
Living on 12 Volts with Ample Powerby David
Smead and Ruth Ishihara. $25.00. A remarkably com-
plete and easy-to-understand book for the builder,
installer, technician and user of 12-volt and alternate
energy systems. It covers generating, storing, using,
and refrigerating with 12-volt power, including sec-
tions on solar panels, wind generators, batteries, and
Dead Run by Tony Gibbs. $16.95. The only
author with two books on this list, Gibbs makes his
debut as a novelist with this seagoing tale of sus-
pense and adventure. Beginning with a murder aboard
a large old sailing vessel on the hard at City Island,
taking the reader on a not-so-merry chase (including a
memorable visit to a house of ill repute) and ending
with a surprise, here's a story that'll appeal to most

Wildtrack by Bernard Cornwell. $17.95. This is
one of those British sailing novels that provide more
local color than most Americans really want But it's
a good sailing story, anyhow, its central character
caught in a web of corruption, murder and sailing.
The final scene's a humdinger!
Challenge by George Foy. $18.95. The high-
stakes, high-tech world of 12-meter racing provides
the setting for this murder mystery. It's full of sus-
pense, action and authentic nautical detail, and it's a
well told story for both sailors and non-sailors.
TWIXTT FICTION AND NON-FICTION
Tristan Jones is a writer whose books seem to fasci-
nate most all of us, and we're not sure whether we
,consider them fiction or non-fiction. So we've created
a special section here. Among his books currently
available, some hardcover and some in paper, are: Ice
($14.95), Improbable Voyage ($7.95), Incredible
Voyage ($18.95), Saga of a Windward Sailor
($14.95), Somewheres East of Suez ($17.95). and
Steady Trade ($15.95).
