This year's Waterway Cleanup, sponsored by the
Marine Industries Association of South Florida
(MIA-SF), is scheduled for Saturday, March 4. As in
previous years, sixteen sites have been selected from
Deerfield Beach to Hallandale. At each site, partici-
pants will arrive at 9:00 a.m. to receive cleanup
instructions, complimentary T-shirts (while they last)
and garbage bags. Work will continue until 1:00 p.m.
Trash will be brought back to each site for disposal.
A 'Trash Bash" will be held at Tugboat Annie's
at Harbour Towne Marina where participants will
enjoy refreshments and hot dogs. Gifts which are
donated by MIASF members and businesses through-
out the waterfront community will be distributed to
According to Van Snider, executive director of
the MIA-SF, last year's cleanup brought in 300 tons
of trash from the waterways, with more than 2,500
cleanup volunteers and 200 boats participating. Last
year's haul was 75 tons over the previous year.
"The waterways are used as a dumping ground
throughout the county, and this hurts everyone," said
Snider. "The Cleanup makes people aware of the
amount and kinds of trash dumped into the canals and
rivers of our community. It's not a pretty site to see
mattresses, shopping carts, old tires and other trash
retrieved from waterways used for recreation."
He hopes that this year's cleanup nets even more
trash, with more volunteers participating. Local civic
groups and homeowner's associations as well as indi-
viduals are invited to join in to make Waterway
Cleanup '89 a great success.

With a goal of removing 50 tons of litter from
Palm Beach County's waterways, beaches, reefs, and
interior sites, 2,000 volunteers are'needed to join in a
county-wide cleanup that will take place on Saturday,
The one-day event is part of a month-long com-
munity beautification program known as 'Trash-A-
Palm Beach County Commissioner Carole Rob-
erts was named honorary chairperson for Trash-A-
Thon '89. Pine Jog Environmental Center of Florida
Atlantic University is coordinating the event, and
several local and national corporate sponsors have
been garnered as well. The Marine Industries Associ-
ation of Palm Beach is also very actively involved in
this year's cleanup.
Representatives of the Marine Industries Associ-
ation who will'take charge of the Intracoastal Water-
way cleanup on March 11 are Bob Birdsall and MIA-
PBC president Mark Masciarotte. Any boaters who
would like to help out during this event can call Bob
Birdsall at 832-7879.
Kids participating in the one-day event will have
the opportunity to win prizes by getting businesses
and residents to make a pledge of a certain dollar
amount for each pound of trash that is collected. Pro-
ceeds from this sponsorship will benefit Pine Jog's
environmental and educational programs.
Beach sites to be cleaned up stretch from Coral
Cove Park in Tequesta to South Inlet Park in Boca
Raton. Fifteen sites are scheduled to be purged along
the Intracoastal, from Coral Cove to Lake Wyman
Park. An additional five sites will be reached by boat
Big Munyon Island, Little Munyon Island, Peanut
Island, Hunters Island, and Beer.Can Island. Divers
will be enlisted to pick up trash from various reefs.
For more information on the reef cleanup, call Ken
Weemhoff at 391-1474.
Those people who would like to participate in
Trash-A-Thon '89 can pre-register by calling 686-
6600 or can sign up on March 11 at the registration
area at your selected location. The cleanup will last
three hours and will begin at 9 a.m.

Waterfront residents living along Fort
Lauderdale's Middle River are petitioning the city to

officials prefer a state law fearing that a Local
ordinance may be ineffective.

Waterfront property owners deprived basic right
I'm in recent arrival to the local waterfront. And
I'm amazed to find a law here depriving waterfront
property owners of,what is to me, a basic right. That
is, to prohibit certain, otherwise legal, uses of his or
her property. Specifically, the right to rent a dock out
to a third party.
Just what makes that so wrong? If a person no
longer wants to, or becomes financially or physically
unable to keep their own boat at their dock. What is
so awful about sharing the limited space with a boater
who isn't among the fortunate few living on the
water. If the property owner let's his son, brother in
law, or just a friend use it free it's OK! Right?Maybe
we should make the transfer of money illegal. That
seems to be what really makes rentals illegal here,
isn't it? Or is there something else wrong with this?
Surely we don't deed more unenforceable laws

calls "big brother" out to extract some form of
revenge. Is this kind of world the people here want to
have? I know, for a fact, many docks are being
offered for rent right now. I've looked at quite a few.
It seems to me, one of the underlying effects of
this ordinance is to keep rental fees higher than a
"free market" might otherwise allow, by creating a
"shortage" of available legal slips. Is there a conflict

I have a problem a 3-cylinder, 60 horse-power
Evinrude. It runs good.
Everytime I quit using the boat I run the fuel out
of the carburetor. In a week, two weeks or a month, it
will start right up no problem. It will smoke and if I
idle longer than a half a minute it will miss and plugs
get soaked with oil. Getting it out on the water, run
fast, clean out the oil and it will run very good till
next time I idle over half a minute. The outboard's
fuel mileage is very good.
I use Texaco 50 to one oil, one pint to almost six
gallons of gas. It has new plugs Champion J6C -
and idles at 700 to 750 rpms. Where is this oil
coming from? What can be done?
I had one of these Evinrude 3-cylinder engines
and it ran fine. Eventually, though, they do wear and
lose compression. The resulting blow-by wets the
plugs until they heat up and the rings and such
expand. Using a hotter plug can help some but the
best bet is redoing the engine to correct this problem.
Running the engine fast will expand the rings and
pistons, but for a cure motor work must be done to
correct the wear on the cylinders and rings.

I must have tied my boat up short the other night
when I came in from fishing. The next morning I
found that the cleat at the stem had pulled out tearing
the fiberglass. It was only bolted through with
washers and nuts, no other support at all. Do I have
any recourse at all with the boat company.
I usually look at any boat I buy or work on to see
if all hardware, cleats, rails, stanchions and posts, are
back-plated or reinforced. If you are towing or being
towed or just tied up, all posts, rings, or cleats should
be securely fastened to the boat hull. Many "bargain"
boats do not have quality work or heavy duty fiber-
glass and backing installed in them. Sometimes a
bargain is not the best way to go. You are lucky the
cleat pulled out where and when it did. A taut line
pulling out a cleat can be a deadly weapon. First, I
would check all my other cleats, then I would contact
the dealer I bought the boat from and go on from

I get a lot of static on my ship-to-shore radio. I
don't get hardly any when I am not running. I feel
that my set is picking up engine noise and electrical
impulses from my alternator and plugs, etc. What can
I do to eliminate this annoyance.
It is mostly a process of elimination on these
noises you pick up. I would first run a direct line to
my radio from the battery. Do not hook into a con-
nection with other units. Plugs and wires should be of
the right type and condensers should be installed on
units that can put out electrical arcing. All connec-
tions must be tight and corrosion free. Don't forget a
good clean ground and a tight aerial connection.
Turtles get second chance
Endangered sea turtles will get a second chance
at winning the race for survival. Thanks to Congress
which, in a late 1987 session, passed a Turtle Exclu-
sion Device (TED) law requiring shrimp fisherman to
use TEDs offshore beginning May 1 of this year
(inshore regulation goes into effect May 1, 1990).
After much deliberation, and with TED regulations
becoming a major source of controversy in the reau-
thorization of the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the
heavily negotiated act was finally approved by both
Senate and House last September.
"All branches of the Federal Government have
now looked at the evidence on the drowning of sea
turtles in shrimp nets and all have agreed that shrimp
fisherman must begin using TEDs if sea turtles are to
be saved from extinction," reports a triumphant
release from the Center for Environmental Education
in Washington, D.C.
Commercial shrimpers see it differently."This
new TED legislation will cause a lot of havoc
because we have not been able to find a device that
works on all the different bottoms," complained Bob
Jones, executive director of the Southeast Fisheries
Association in Tallahassee.
The Atlantic editor of National Fisherman,
Christopher Cornell concerned with Jones about the
effectiveness of a TED: ... depends on the area
you're fishing. Nobody loves these things. In certain
areas it is easier to fish with than others. Some fisher-
man are still fighting this tooth and nail."
\ Reflected Jones, It's the law of land and we
have to abide by it. We're getting government grants
to test different designs. We hope to be testing a new
TED off Cape Canaveral in March."
Various states and federal government agencies
have already spent substantial sums to introduce
shrimp fisherman to the device. Florida is using
$80,000 for TED training.
I have an automatic winch to raise and lower my
anchor. It works fine. But, every once in a while,
when trying to raise my anchor, the fuse will blow
and I have to run down and replace it. Why or how
can I stop this?
Fuses blow when they are. overloaded. Thank
your lucky star that the fuse blew instead of other
damage that could have happened. I would'replace
the fuse with a breaker that you can reset when
needed. Also, check the battery cables and connec-
tions leading to the winch. Are they heavy enough? Is
the battery in good condition? There may be other
causes for the fuse failure. Al

Hunting old treasures on New River
by Mindy Leaf
Some people dig for gold& Others bet on the
market. But when the Gold Coast chapter of the
Antique and Classic Boat Society (ACBS) goes on a
treasure-hunt, it's to find something members
consider even more precious and rare.. On Saturday,
February 4, they went in search of antique and classic
boat survivors along Ft. Lauderdale's New River. In
addition to the intrinsic pleasures of such a scenic
expedition, the goal was to attract new converts to the
Balmy bright weather proved ideal for hunting
treasure of the nautical kind. The search party,
consisting of a quartet of vintage and classic vessels,
rendezvoused at the Lauderdale Isles Yacht and
Tennis Club, toward the lower end of the South Fork.
By mid-morning, they were off an eclectic parade
of power and sail, large and small, old and not so old
representing a spectrum of the types of vessels and
people they sought.
Leading the group were Andy and Gwynn
Repcik with son, Chris, aboard Andy's first love,
Yandis 1, an "on its way to becoming a classic," 1971
Chapter president Steve Nadeau, a Miami Harbor
pilot, followed aboard his 25-foot, 1962 Cheoy Lee
sloop. Joining him were Gar Wood Il, grandson of
the founder of Chris-Craft, and veteran member Gene
Donoghue, one of the original directors of the 15-
year-old national society.
Next came a youthful, bikini-clad party aboard a
large Richardson cruiser owned by the developer of
Lauderdale Isles. Even without the girls, the lovingly
restored Olympus, the product of five years of labor,
would have warranted second looks.
As did the shiny mahogany- and oak-planked
Carter replica, bringing up the rear. The classic-styled
sedan was driven by builder George Boivin of
Spencer Boat Works on Lake George, New York.
Alongside him sat his partner, classic boat collector
Bob Buruchian. Both men spend their winters in
From the outset, while idling through narrow
South Fork, a wealth of wooden classics were seen
docked along both banks of the river. "One dead
giveaway of age is to look for a broad, flat transom,"
said Gwynn Repcik. She spotted at least a dozen.
Just about every single- double- or triple-masted
wooden sailboat passed was deemed a potential
"Classic" (technically boats built from 1943 through
1968), with many derelicts looking like they'd easily
qualify for "Antique" status (1919 through 1942) as
well. Such faded old glories were a sad sight, but a
few showed signs of patiently begun restoration.
When the boat's restorers were in view, they were
hailed and invited to the club's next meeting; when
not, a Society brochure was carefully placed aboard.
The first unoccupied discovery was a magnifi-
cent Trumpy near the Seminole Indianvillage. The
first live one was Rusty and Dianne Sedlack's
Courier parked at Marina Bay. The Sedlacks were
delighted to have been visitqd-Rusty said engine
trouble had kept them from joining the tour. If their
name sounds familiar, it's because their 1939 Henry
C. Grebe cruiser last won the Jensen Beach Antique
& Classic Regatta, featured in the January issue of
There were plenty more prospects popping up
from below decks-Saturdays being popular with
wooden boat owners as a day of maintenance and
restoration. At least 20 invites to the club were
personally handed to interested parties throughout the
day. Steve Nadeau's big thrill came in meeting two
fellow owners of classic Cheoy Lees; one of the boats
even shared his boat's vintage.
Summerfield Boat Works proved a veritable
forest of large wooden ketches reminiscent of a
bygone era. While cruising up the river, the group
also spotted a picaresque oyster fishermen, a 1950
spongeboat near Old Florida Land park, and several
ancient tugboats tootin' down from North Fork.
When the parade arrived at the llth Avenue
swing bridge, one of Broward's oldest, it too
presented a rare treat. Unfastened manually by a
bridge tender on demand, the entire structure pivots
90 degrees, allowing boaters to pass on either side.
This dead-end waterway up the North Fork is one of
Florida's best-kept cruising secrets. Exceeding
quiet, reflecting an earlier, more genteel lifestyle, its
shores are lined with old-time elegant homes and the
lushness of naturally tangled foliage. There's even a
small mangrove island inhabited by coots.
Here Nadeau turned back to greet an old trimaran
while the Repciks and followers hailed an obviously
lived-aboard wooden ketch that looked as if it had
traveled round the world several times over.'
Confronted by a salty father time whose full-grown
white beard and sun-faded attire hinted at a vintage
even more ancient than his vessel's, the group was
left momentarily speechless. But then Gwynn, spunky
as ever, introduced the club, inquiring as to the boat's
origin and vintage. "She was custom-built in '36,"
replied the ancient mariner, adding ingenuously,
"Does that qualify?"
After docking for lunch at Shirttail Charlie's-a
legend in its own right-other groups spent the rest of
the afternoon soliciting membership or just a friendly
"Come watch our parade!" from shoreside dwellers
along the return leg.
One lost cause was a mint, vintage Chris-Craft
whose young driver sped by groovin' to sound in his
earphones, and deaf to the world. It's hoped they'll
meet again, perhaps when the lad's unplugged-in dad
is at the helm.
"We certainly plan to do this more often," said
Gwynn a week later. The consensus on Saturday's
expedition was that it had not only been great fun, but
also a huge recruiting success. Eight new faces
showed up at the club s next meeting (held on the
second Wednesday of every month at Lauderdale
Isles Yacht and Tennis Club). There were also several
telephone inquiries and even a few sign-ups, most
notably Lee and Fran Eden of Pompano Beach who
own a 55-foot Stowman custom-cruiser, vintage
But more than anything, the group had been
impressed by the abundance of unsung wealth that lay
in their own backyard. If they wished to reach every
antique and classic boat owner in South Florida--
why they'd barely made a dent!

Changes on boat yard row
by M.G. Swift
One of Fort Lauderdale's major concentrations
of boat yards the 1500 to 2000 blocks of Southwest

for a major overhaul as the owners of Lauderdale
Yacht Basin and the recent purchasers of Riverbcnd

Legendary Riverbend Marine was sold at the end
of 1988 by Shelly Lake to Excalibur Marine, Inc.
Excalibur also owns two other marinas in Florida-
Morton Downs and Monterey in Stuart, said Ed
Insley, Riverbend's new general manager. "Shelly
Lake is staying on as a consultant," added Insley.
Lake indicated he would remain at the yard until
Excalibur wants to change the face of Riverbend
which has traditionally been the harbor of a large
live-aboard community and safe haven for sailboats,
popularized nationally by Wooden Boat Magazine
columnist David Kasanof who lives there aboard his
demasted sailboat Content. The firm plans to convert
the boat yard into a "high class marina," according to
Insley, putting in a new front, docks and fencing.
Plans also call for a new parking lot to be constructed
just east of the adjacent convenience store on 15th
Street The new management is asking permanent
"live-aboard residents to relocate" away from
Riverbend, advised Insley.
Up river and down the road from Riverbend,
Lauderdale Yacht Basin's owners want to demolish
the 60-year-old boat yard's repair sheds and 125
covered boat slips, replacing them with a 230-slip
yacht marina, dry storage facilities for an additional
300 boats, 250-room hotel, a yacht club, 120
waterfront townhouses, shops and a restaurant.
However, the proposal has raised environmental and
traffic concerns with governmental agencies and the
residential neighborhood lies between the basin and
State Road 84 to the South.
Writer David Kasanof and his wife, Nancy, are
moving Content across the river to another yard and
the couple will be moving into a house onshore. They
said they will miss the community of live-aboard
boaters at Riverbend.
Waterfront Performing Arts Center benefit planned
By Gloria Katz
Plans are well under way for "Celebration '89 -
Dreams Do Come True", a grand evening hosted by
IMPACT (Interested Members of the Performing
Arts Center Team) to benefit the new Performing
Arts Center currently under construction in Fort
Lauderdale on the Riverwalk.
Slated for March 10, 1989 from 6 to 9 p m at
Cafe' 66,of the Pier 66 Resort and marina, "Dreams
Do Come True" will feature a glittering array of
entertainment, a spectacular silent auction and a one-
of-a-kind door prize drawing. Celebrants will enjoy
cocktails while feasting on a buffet of turkey, roast
beef, and an assortment of salads.
"Guests will have the opportunity to support the
Performing Arts Center by bidding on a fabulous
assortment of merchandise packages", said Linda
Stransky, Coordinator of the Friends Program at the
Center. "Additional fantastic prizes will be awarded
during the evening through a series of drawings."
"The business community has been very generous
in their support of this event," said Will Bumett,
Celebration '89 Co-Chairman. "Our list of Corporate
Sponsors include, The Miami Herald, CPC Fort
Lauderdale Hospital, Savings of America, American
Airlines, and Pier 66 Resort and Marina."
"Dreams Do Come True is IMPACT's major
fundraising project for the calendar year 1988-89.
The dynamic organization is comprised of business
and professional people from throughout the tri-
county area who are dedicated to supporting the new
Performing Arts Center.

"The professional communities of Dade, Broward
and Palm Beach Counties have long recognized the
necessity of building a performing arts center," said
Nancy Ingalls, President of IMPACT. "The center's
location at Southwest 2nd street on the New River-is
clearly central to the revitalization of the downtown
Fort Lauderdale area."
"We've had more than 350 talented individuals
from Coconut Grove to Lake Worth join forces to
promote awareness and nurture the success of what
will ultimately be South Florida's regional arts and
entertainment center." Ingalls added.
IMPACT's goals are twofold: to raise funds for
the $50 million Performing Arts Center, scheduled
for a 1990 curtain call; and to raise public awareness
through community festivals, special events, gala
parties and a speakers bureau.
IMPACT members may choose from various
annual membership categories ranging from $25 to
$200. New members are welcomed to join IMPACT

Boaters upset over proposal to ban rush hour bridge openings
By Craig Lustgarten
Many boaters are irate over a proposal to elimi-
nate bridge openings at Palm Beach County's PGA
Boulevard and Parker bridges during morning and af-
ternoon rush hours.
U.S. Rep. Tom Lewis (R- North Palm Beach)
filed the request for the bridge closings with the U.S.
Coast Guard, which establishes drawbridge operating
Presently, the two bridges open twice an hour
during peak traffic periods, from 7-9 a.m. and 4-7
p.m. Representative Lewis' office claims that drivers
are being inconvenienced by the frequent bridge
openings, with major traffic tieups occurring during
Ken McKinnon, press aide to Rep. Lewis, stated,

lic, but there is far more vehicular traffic during those
In a letter written to the Palm Beach County

By Craig Lustgarten
The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach
County (MIA-PBC) serves as an important lobbying
force, representing the area's boating community and
related industries in Tallahassee and working with
various state agencies on issues affecting boating.
The MIA-PBC often coordinates its political
efforts with the MIA-Treasure Coast chapter, and the
two groups are also planning a social event at the end
Marc Masciarotte, president of the MIA-PBC,
says one of the most controversial issues on the
boating agenda in the State Capitol is a proposal by
Rep. Tom Lewis to restrict bridge openings in Palm
Beach County during rush hours in the mornings and
afternoons. The two bridges where traffic would be
affected are the PGA Boulevard bridge and theParker
bridge over U.S. 1 at Old Port Cove.
Masciarotte, who wrote a letter to Congressman
Lewis stating the MIA-PBC's objection to the propo-
sal, says, "The bridges have been timed for years, and
we believe the boating public should have access to
the Intracoastal. By closing the bridges, you create a
safety problem for boaters as well as an access
The MIA-PBC also claims that it would be diffi-
cult to keep boats backed up at the bridges separated,
because of the strong currents in the area, and that
there aren't sizable anchorages available near these
Another issue on the agenda of the MIA-PBC is
the problem of manatee deaths due to careless
boaters. The manatee is considered an endangered
species, and according to the Florida Division of
Marine Resources, 43 manatees were killed by boats
Masciarotte stated, "We don't condone boaters
killing manatees, but no one really knows what the
census figures are, so our association is funding a
pilot and aircraft to carry two observers, one from the
1554 North Federal Highway
"Pompano Beach, Florida 33062

is serious, as boat traffic builds up in the confined ar-
eas adjacent to to the bridges."
Masciarotte added, "In our opinion (MIA-PBC),
it is illegal to obstruct traffic on a navigational water-
way for that amount of time."
The MIA-PBC president feels that shortsighted
planning by the government is responsible for the
present bridge traffic problems and that tunnels
should have been installed instead of drawbridges at
the two locations. Masciarotte related that tunnels
are more expensive to build, but in the long-run
would are more cost-effective and less unsightly than
Lou Parris, a senior chief with the U.S. Coast
Guard, District Seven, related that traffic information
regarding the two bridges has been received, and a
determination is being made as to how to best regu-
late the openings and traffic flow.
Parris stated, "Our primary interest is to serve
both modes of transportation which are in conflict
with each other: we are attempting to moderate the
situation so that the discomfort on both sides will be
The U.S. Coast Guard is faced with an almost
impossible task of trying to expedite traffic on the
MIA and one from the State, to count the manatees
on one particular day this winter."
One piece of legislation that the MIA has
supported was the passage of an increase of the user
tax for boats in Palm Beach County. The recently
enacted law is expected to bring in additional money
to support fish habitats and artificial reef programs
The MIA-PBC holds dinner meetings on the third
Tuesday of each month at a (restaurant to be
announced) at 7 pm, dinner at 7:30 pm. The organiza-
tion currently boasts 100 members.

sored by the MIA-PBC is the Beach and Waterway

bridges while avoiding traffic jams on both land and
water during the peak periods. The Coast Guard re-
ceived the results of a study conducted by the Depart-
ment of Transportation (DOT) which showed that
bridge traffic has decreased on the PGA bridge by 10
percent since 1984. This has boosted boaters claims
that the amount of bridge openings should be kept the
same during peak periods.
U.S. Rep. Lewis' office disputes that study, say-
ing that bridge traffic at the PGA and Parker bridges
has gotten worse because of an increase in population
and the opening of the new regional mall.
According to Ken McKinnon, the U.S. Coast
Guard has refused to compromise on the issue, and
Rep. Lewis is determined to go as high as possible,
even to the Secretary of Transportation if necessary,
in order to get those bridges to stay closed during

is geared primarily to individuals who are selling their
own boats. Little more than a weekend is often all
that it takes to make the sale, and the do-it-yourself

Boat sellers pay a fee for space in the show based
on the size and location of their boat. In-water space
as well as land space for trailable boats is available.
Then during the three-day show, the sellers work a
manageable, qualified crowd to sell their own boat.

Information provided by last year's exhibitors on
questionnaires sent out over the summer shows that
at the first annual show some people sold their boats
right on the spot at the show. Others found leads that
ended up in sales within a short time afterwards. Most
people feel that a show is one of the best ways to
expose a boat to a qualified audience that has come for
no other purpose than to buy a boat.
Boat sellers with no experience were particularly
pleased with the information packages provided by the
show which included selling tips and allthe necessary
paperwork to finalize their deal. And even those folks
who didn't manage to sell their boat, according to
comments made on the questionnaire, felt their time
had been well-spent talking with qualified buyers,
shopping the flea market and having a good time.
The show will be open from 9:30 am to 6:30 pm
daily on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, March 31,

Rugged seafarers populate Irish yacht club, world's oldest
by Stuart Mclver
Crosshaven, Ireland You know it's a serious
yacht club, when its boats are-out on the water even
on a day when the wind off the Irish Sea whips a cold
autumn rain into every exposed pore.
Then when the sailors shed their foul weather gear
and gum boots and troop into the bar for an Irish
whiskey a little water, no ice or a pint of Guin-
ness stout, you know you are in the domain of
rugged, seafaring types.
Welcome to the Royal Cork Yacht Club, of
Crosshaven, County Cork, Ireland, the world's oldest.
It was founded as the Water Club of the Harbour of
Cork, back in 1720, with just six members.
On the occasion of its quarter millennium, Ireland
honored the club with a commemorative postage
stamp, showing a painting by the Isle of Jersey mari-
time painter, Peter Monamy, which depicted two
yachts of the club in Cork Harbor in 1738.
Today its membership has risen from the original
six to 1100, roughly 500 of them active sailing
members, the rest junior cadets or overseas members
from around the globe, from the United States, United
Kingdom, the Continent, Saudi Arabia and the
Caribbean. The club would like even, more members
from yacht clubs in the United States.
Members maintain a fleet of about a hundred
boats, all of them powered by sail. These men are
Take Patrick "Paddy" Walsh, a hale and hearty
sailor blessed with the classic coloring an Irishman in
his 50s should sport bright blue eyes, a healthy
head of grey hair and the pink skin of a man who
spends much of his time in the fresh, Irish air. Paddy
is a successful builder in Cork. He is also the Admi-
ral of the Royal Cork Yacht Club. The title, Com-
modore, usually the highest in an American yacht
club, ranks only fifth at the RCYC,
Paddy's enthusiasm for traditional blue-water sail-
ing shows through as he speaks of today's high-tech
"Racing machines, I'd call them," he says, with a
characteristic Irish twinkle in his eyes.
Paddy sails a 30-foot Moody, named Lola. For 23
years he's been sailing the rough waters off the grand,
rugged coast of southwest Ireland.
Club members pride themselves in their rough
water skills. Close to Cork lies Fastnet Rock, scene
of the 1979 storm and yachting disasters. None of
RCYC's three members who sailed in the race lost
their lives that terrible day.
Cork, the second largest city in the Republic of
Ireland has an ancient tradition as a port. In 1838
Sirius steamed out of Cork Harbor and on arrival in
New York claimed the honor of becoming the first
ship to cross the Atlantic continuously under steam.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of Sirius's
crossing, Queen Elizabeth 2 visited Cork. The guest
of honor that day was the great grandson of the Sirius
The Royal Cork Yacht Club lies in hilly country
about 10 miles southeast of Cork. Its unpretentious
one-story clubhouse overlooks the Owenbue River,
just west of Cork Harbor, in the little fishing, boat-
Pde the CPainter
Water Damaged Veneer
Replaced as New
ing village of Crosshaven.
Unspectacular from the road, the clubhouse
presents a different face in the warm, nautical friendli-
ness of its wood-paneled bar and dining room. Sip-
ping an Irish whiskey with Paddy Walsh and his wife
Peggy, we looked down toward Cork Harbour and
were delighted to see a huge vessel steam past.
"It's the car ferry from France," said the Admiral.
"Its regular run is from LeHavre to Cork."
As Ireland and the world has changed over the
years, so has the club's membership. Earlier mem-
bers, such as the Lords of Kinsale and the Earls oi
Dunrave, were Anglo-Irishmen some dating back to
the days of Cromwellian land grants in the 1600s.
Later the membership began to reflect the changes as
the land struggled for independence.
"Our members today are a cross-section of the
Irish business world," says Admiral Walsh. "They
come from commerce, industry, the professions, engi-
neers, architects, solicitors."
Members' names roll off the tongue with the lilt
of an Irish song O'Riordan, O'Mahony, O'Leary,
Moynihan, McFeely and Joxer O'Brien.
Sprinkled among the RCYC's business types are
generous servings of the great and famous in the
world of sailing. The club has strong ties to the
America's Cup races. In 1861 the famous schooner,
America, raced in a regatta to Cork Harbor, losing on
time to a small Irish schooner but nonetheless going
on to lend her name to the most famous of all ocean
Harold Cudmore, who skippered the British con-
tender, White Crusader, in the 1987 America's Cup
races at Perth, learned his sailing skills as a cadet at
the Royal cork.
Just across the river from the club is the office of
Ron Holland, filled with drawing boards and state-of-
the-art computers. He designed the New Zealand
America's Cup challenger, Kiwi Magic.
The Royal Cork has had its share of famous sail-
ors, among them Sir Francis Chichester, who sailed
his GypsyMoth around the world solo, and Tim Sev-
erin, who proved St. Brendan might have made. it
across the Atlantic before either the Vikings or
Columbus. Severin crossed the ocean in a leather sail-
boat called appropriately enough, Brendan.
Both Gypsy Moth and Brendan were built at the
Crosshaven Boatyard, just down the river from the
RCYC's Tim Severin at the helm of Brendan.

Irish yacht clubcot-
Royal Cork clubhouse. Paddy Walsh remembers well
Severin's problem in working with leather, the
material used in boat building in St Brendan's time.
"It smelled from high heaven," recalled the
Irish legend has it that St. Brendan, a sixth
century monk noted for his navigational skills,
crossed the Atlantic in a curragh, a boat made of
If he actually reached Newfoundland, as his
writings suggest, St. Brendan set foot on the North
American mainland a thousand years before
Columbus "discovered" the New World.
Severin successfully duplicated Brendan's voyage
by crossing the North Atlantic in 1977. Visitors to
Ireland today can see the 36-foot Brendan at the Crag-
gaunowen Project, a County Clare attraction. It
smells better now.
The Royal Cork Yacht Club started life more than
two and a half centuries ago on Haulbowline Island in
Cork Harbor. The fleet assembled each spring and
sailed in company, executing maneuvers ordered by
the Admiral and signaled by flags and guns. A
member designated "Knight of the Island" was respon-
sible for seeing to it that no unauthorized strangers
visited the club's headquarters in Haulbowline Castle.
Strict protocol governed fleet assemblies and club-
house behavior. The first rule book stated "that no
Admiral presume to bring more than two dozen of
wine to his treat..." A later rule limited a member to
one liter-and-a-half bottle of claret at dinner. The
member was allowed another after settling his dinner
During America's Revolutionary War, British
naval officers swelled the membership rolls. Lord
Cornwallis used Cork Harbor as a staging area for
men-of-war and supply vessels.
Around 1800 the club moved from the island to
the port of Cobh. It was granted the prefix "Royal"
by King William IV, thus becoming the Royal Cork
Yacht Club in 1831.
Some 60 years later William Gladstone, Prime
Minister during the reign of Queen Victoria, chal-
lenged the club's right to the moniker, "Royal." He
had to back down when helearned that the late Prince
Albert, who had been Victoria's husband for 21 years,
had been a member of the Royal Cork.
In 1967 the club moved to its present location and
merged with the Royal Munster Yacht Club. Its offi-
cial name today is the "Royal-Cork Yacht Club,
incorporating the Royal Munster Yacht Club." Few
yacht clubs have a longer name. None has a longer

Old Island armada flagging set for Key West
By Andy Newman
Key West, Florida Keys Flag and ribbon-
bedecked sailing schooners and powerboats of all
sizes, private and commercial, as well as U. S. Navy
and Coast Guard vessels will parade once again to the
music of Tchaikovsky's "Overture to the War of
1812" in Key West's main channel when the Second
Annual flagging of. the Old Island Armada takes
place Saturday, March 11.
Festivities are set to get underway at 5 p m and
U.S. GOVERNMENT TESTS INDICATE

the Ocean Key House, located at Zero Duval Street,
will provide the staging area and one of many
viewing sites for the event.
Last year, more than 40 vessels and 150 crew
members took part in the nautical parade, sponsored
by the Old Island Restoration Foundation as a fund-
raiser for the organization's preservation and restora-
tion endeavors on behalf of Key West architecture.
The Flagging commemorates Commodore David
Porter's elimination of pirates from the waters of the
Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean with his famous Key
West-based "Mosquito Fleet" in 1822.
The parade begins in Key West's main channel
off Man O' War Key and continues past Key West
hotels, Mallory Dock, Truman Annex and Fort
Zachary Taylor. During two sweeps, the parade of
boats will be judged by a maritime committee for
several best-dressed categories, with vessels ranging
from 12 feet to more than 100 feet-in length.
Registration fee is $15 for each vessel and captain
and $5 for each additional crew member. Participants
compete for prizes such as last year's top award
which featured a trip to London.
The event will follow the annual Conch Shell
Blowing Contest at 3 p m and immediately precedes
Key West's world renowned Sunset Celebration.
Conch shell blowing contest in Key west
By Andy Newman
Key West, Florida Keys Conch shell music
will ring out from Old Key West when the 27th
Annual Conch Shell Blowing Contest gets underway
Saturday, March 11 at 3 p m dockside at the Ocean
Key House located at the foot of Duval Street on the
Gulf of Mexico.
The unique contest, begun in 1962, is part of the
tradition of the Old Island Days celebration, spon-
sored annually by the Old Island Restoration Founda-
tion. Free to the public, the event attracts standing
room audiences to hear contestants from three to
seventy competing in various age categories.
The origin of the event goes back several hundred
years in the Florida Keys to the days when Calusa
Indians and pirates dwelt here and utilized the conch
(pronounced "konk") shell for communications. A
toot was a signal of survival or distress. Today in Key
West, boat captains have revived the custom blowing
their conch shells to signal their departures for deeper

Up the middle route to Key West
is worth keeping in mind
by Ray Pace
Necessity, it is said, is the mother of invention.
It's also a good memory jogger.
Our trip was to have been the standard sail from
Key West to Ft. Lauderdale late last May, aboard our
26-foot sloop. Changes in job locations for my wife
and me dictated that we make such a trip, but time,
the way we had planned it, was on our side. We had
left a week of "off" time in the schedule to make the
trip which "doggin' it" takes four days and hard
pressed can be done in two.
The fine print in our plans should have read
"under normal weather conditions."
The late season cold front making its way down
the Florida peninsula was predicted to pass through
the Keys and on into Cuba and beyond. Instead the
cold front bounced into the Florida Straits, picked up
some tropical bad habits and proceeded to slide
northward, turning into a tropical wave, which stayed'
put creating 20-30 knot winds out of the east and
daily rainfall of several inches. The system covered
all of South Florida, including the Keys.
The system was, however, supposed to dissipate
"in the next 18 to 36 hours," according to NOAA. If
it ever did, we still don't know. The forecast became
a broken-record of high seas, 70% chances of rain,
wind gusting to 30, and our week of travel time
With four days left, we made an attempt to get
out of Key West through Key West Harbor, to the
Atlantic side. Leaden skies and six-foot waves turned
us back, as boats twice our size gave up on the
attempt and elected to stay in port.
Word was'that the Gulf side passage was also
experiencing high waves, plenty of rain and a lot of
wind, once one got off shore the outlying Keys.
We spent another night in port listening to
NOAA and looking at the charts. It was then that I-
remembered a story I had written a year before, in
which the Coast Guard was abandoning an old
section of the Intracoastal Waterway, which ran right
through the Lower Keys. The reasons behind this
abandonment was a lack of an eight foot controlling
depth, insufficient use by the public, and a less than
adequate marker system.
Another part of that story dealt with some of the
boasters who used the waterway, who insisted that
yes, it was shallow down to three feet in places and
that the marker system was, to say the least, unique,
BUT that the waterway was a definite alternative to
the Atlantic and the Gulf sides.
Taking all this into consideration, we decided to
make the attempt. It would not be a sailing trip, but a
workout for our eight horsepower kicker. Twenty-
five gallons of gas were taken aboard in jerry cans
along with several long poles, which could be used to
test water depths and to push off shoals.
Our draft with center board up all the way aboard
the Creole Belle is two and one half feet. We set the
board down to the three and one half foot level,
knowing that should we run aground, we could raise
the board a foot and still have room to play with.
We picked up green marker 147 north of Key
West, and with the help of binoculars (a must) we
were on our way headed east on water that had a
moderate chop. Monitoring the VHF, however told us
that vessels out on the Atlantic and Gulf sides, were
Having it a lot rougher.
The marker system we found in the Keys back
country was unique. Many of the Coast Guard
markers are still standing, even though they have
faded somewhat. In places where there is no longer a
Coast Guard marker, good old mariner ingenuity has
taken over. Bleach bottles and beer cans on sticks
often mark the deep water. A compass, a chart and
binoculars will get you through.
The system is shallow. We ran aground only
once, and by raising the centerboard we were out of
trouble easily that was near green marker 111 at a
place called the Inner Narrows, off Snipe Keys.
The rest of the trip through the Lower Keys was
relatively smooth motoring, except for the rain. Late
in the afternoon, we came around the northern end of
Big Pine Key and made our way past Seven Mile
Bridge toward Faro Blanco in Marathon where we
spent the night .
The route is definitely not for deep draft vessels,
nor is it for serious sailing or motoring, but it is a
useful alternative route for simply plowing on if one
has to get into or out of the Lower Keys.
Having said all of the above, I will now add that
none of what I have written here should be taken as
an endorsement to be used for navigation (a neces-
sary disclaimer found on most unauthorized charts).

16 Waterfront News March 1989 Safety
Life on the water in the Florida Marine Patrol
by Bryan Brooks
Denise Warrick loves her job as a homicide
investigator with the Florida Marine Patrol. "You
never get bored, the challenge is always there," she
says matter-of-factly, with her clear blue eyes and
light brown tousled hair. In talking to her, it's easy to
see why she commands respect from both the public
and her fellow officers.
Besides being concerned with boater safety,
Investigator Warrick's job takes her into the realm of
drug enforcement, environmental concern, oil spills,
and wildlife conservation.
Though employed by the State of Florida, she is
also empowered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service with arrest powers out to 200 miles offshore.
Everything from lobster poachers to the rest of the
planet floating ashore on palm fronds, for a new life
in America, concerns her.
She joined the Florida Marine Patrol eight years
ago and has never regretted it. Her father was a state
trooper with the Florida Highway Patrol; he
convinced her that if she was interested in law
enforcement and she was that she should look
into the Florida Marine Patrol. Her father told her
that policing the state's waterways would be more
challenging for her. Denise says that her father was
Two years ago she was made a Homicide Inves-
tigator, which means she personally investigates
every water related death or serious accident that
occurs in Broward County. That could be a boating
accident or lost diver.
Recently, a lot of her time has been taken up
with investigating the scuba diving accidents that
have occurred here. More boaters, more divers, the
.inevitable always seems to happen.
Though Denise is not a certified scuba diver
herself, she has made it her business, to become
educated in the why and wherefores of diving, and
the causitive factors that lead to diving deaths. The
challenge of doing a first class investigation intrigues
her4 but says she is sorry that it always has to be
about a death.
When asked about the most dangerous aspect of
her job, Denise relates that it is probably patrolling
Sthe waterways on the night shift. The Florida Marine
Patrol is the only law enforcement body that has a
boat on the waterways 24 hours a day. To make that
as safe-as possible, the night shift always has two
"officers per boat.
She also thinks about boarding boats. Denise
knows that most people in south Florida, being
concerned about drugs and pirates, have guns on
board. Knowing that those guns are probably present,
Denise says that she makes it her business first off to
find out if guns are present, and if they are, then she
makes sure that she has them in control as long as she
is on the boat.
Being the first woman in Broward County on the
Florida Marine Patrol, Denise stated she felt the
initial resentment. However, her no nonsense and
professional approach soon calmed any fears her
male counterparts might have had.
In the future, Denise sees that there might be a
salt water fishing license coming. She sees this as a
major challenge that will require more personnel. As
it is now, she feels that there is much to do and not
enough people to do it with. However, the irony is,
that is part of the challenge that keeps her from ever
SBesides the action in Broward County, Denise
likes the spirit of cooperation that exists here between
the Sheriffs Department, the city's Marine Patrols
and the Federal Government. Each group, she says,
helps the other.
On any Sunday, boating on the waterways of
Broward County resembles 1-95. If, in being a part of
that boating mob, you find yourself being stopped by
a flashing blue light from the Florida Marine Patrol,
and if the officer on board is a woman, you're proba-
bly going to be talking to one of the most profes-
sional law enforcement officers in the county. Don't
take the pretty eyes lightly, she means business.
Denise grew up as a water person, being raised
in Broward County, so boating comes easy. She went
to Nova High School, and also has an associate
Degree in General Arts.
Investigator Warrick likes law enforcement in
Broward County because of the variety of things that
can happen here. Life as a law enforcement officer
here is never boring, sometimes, she says, hectic and
time consuming, but never boring.
She is still single and, is in her words, "loving
it." Her social life though sometimes gets pushed into
the background by duty, which can call at any time of
the day or night Her male friends will just have to
understand. Her pretty eyes tells you silently that they,
Those same cool eyes lets you know when you
talk to her that she is a professional and the job
comes first. She asks no quarter, being a woman, nor
does she give any. Her presence in harm's way has
caused her more than one scrape. She admits to
having been in her share of those scrapes, making the
difficult arrests all police have to make, but those
eyes twinkle again, and she says cooly she has never
When asked about marriage or motherhood,
Denise admits to having thought about it, and would
like to do both someday, but right now her career in
the Florida Marine Patrol is her passion.

Retirees say speeding boaters hurting manatee
By Craig Lustgarten
In an effort to keep the three manatees which
frequent Boynton's Intracoastal Waterway safe, Ster-
ling Village residents are once again asking the city
ofBoynton Beach to petition the State of Florida for
a speed zone which would require boaters to slow
down throughout the area.
Last year, 43 manatee deaths were recorded in
Florida due to boaters. As a result, the Department of
Natural Resources will require that new speed zones
be set this year to help protect the manatee. However,
the stretch of Intracoastal between the Woolbright
and Ocean Avenue bridges, much of which borders
Sterling Village, is not slated for any new speed
Bob Clinger, who is with the Palm Beach
County Department of Environmental Resource Man-
agement, stated, "No one has requested a speed zone
for that area on the basis of boater safety: when the
new speed zones go into effect, that stretch of Intra-
coastal won't be included."
Don Balmer, who has lead a five-year fight to
obtain the lower speeds behind Sterling Village, fi-
nally won a small victory in the matter when he suc-
ceeded in procuring four "caution, manatee area"
signs which were then posted along the railings of the
sea walls of the retirement community. Unfortunate-
ly, boaters would have to be equipped with binocu-
lars to even realize the signs are there.
Royce Hamilton, a lieutenant with the Florida
Marine Patrol, said, "The manatee signs that are post-
ed are not enforceable, and everyone who receives
those signs are told that"
Hamilton added, "There is a problem with mana-
tees getting struck by boats, but I don't think the man-
atees passing through that area are any more suscepti-
ble to being hit than in any other area."
Currently, there is a problem in enforcing speed
zones in Palm Beach County because of a shortage of
manpower. There are only a total of nine Florida Ma-
rine Patrol officers which cover Palm Beach County
every day, and thus a maximum of two boats are on
the ICW at any one time.
Don Balmer says the speeding problem is espe-
cially pmrvateht on weekends along the Intracoastal
Waterway. He stated, "The sea mammals can't pro-
tect themselves if we can't protect them from reckless
Another Sterling Village resident, Dr. Francis
Spickerman, added, "It's sad that we can't do any-
thing about this problem. We see manatees with
scars across their backs from careless boaters: we
have to get people to wake up if we're going to save
Laura Widmer, Boynton Beach public informa-
tion officer, said that the last time the city made the
request to the County for the speed zones, the pres-
ence of the manatees was not used as an argument for
the speed zones, and thus the request was turned
down. Balmer is hoping to bring the issue before the
Boynton city council so that another request can be
The manatee protection issue remains a difficult
one to solve. Lieutenant Hamilton summed up the
problem by stating, "We have to apply a "user con-
flict resolution" to make both the boater and manatee
as safe as possible. Thus we have to establish mana-
tee zones in places where manatees are most likely to
be struck, but we can't establish them along the whole
Sterling Village residents Don Balmer, Francis Spickerman, and Henry Stanley leaders of the fight to pro-
tect the manatees that travel Boynton Beach's Intracoastal.
Beach cleanup planned for April
The National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation is
organizing a Spring Beach Cleanup as part of the
Center for Marine Conservation's Florida Coastal
and Inland Waterway Cleanup and Broward County's
"Make It Shine" campaign, according to Judy Hicklin
with the foundation based in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.
"Yes, we are going to do it again on April 8th
from 9 am to noon, "said Hicklin. We will have four
or five sites in Broward County for volunteers to pick
the one closest to them," she continued.
"The cleanup has two objectives. Our first objec-
tive is to raise public awareness of the problem of
marine debris, especially plastics. Second we also
want to raise public awareness of recycling and its
possibilities for our future. Again as in the last
30FIELDROD, OR UI, L 57-62
Cleanup we will record onto data cards the debris that
is removed from our beaches. This information will
be sent to the Center for Marine Conservation where
it will be compiled for final report. We hope to use
this information to help find the sources of marine
debris and stop it before it has a chance to get into
our marine environment," Hicklin added.
The foundation needs volunteers to help organize
the cleanup as well as participate April 8. Ms. Hicklin
is looking for civic clubs or groups that would like to

Round-the-world sailors win Montego Bay Race
Montego Bay, Jamaica, Feb. 13 Commodore
Rucanor, a Belgian registered 58-foot Standfast
sailboat, has been declared the overall winner of the
coveted Silver Pineapple Cup.
Skippered by Bruno DeBois and crewed by a
team that is tuning up for the Whitbread Around the
World Race, Commodore Rucanor finished with a
corrected time of 4 Days, 7 hours, 35 minutes and 20
seconds. She took first place in IOR (International
Offshore Rule) with second place going to With
Integrity, the former Great Britain II built by Allan
Gurney to be the fastest yacht in the world.
The 77-foot Gurney is the sister ship of
Windward Passage which set the still unbroken
course record of 3 days, 40 minutes and 7 seconds
back in 1971. With Integrity, has
circumnavigated the world in five racing events in
her 17 years and will also be participating in the
Cara, a 57-foot Swan, took first in PHRF
(Performance Handicap Racing Fleet) in the Miami
to Montego Bay Yacht Race with a corrected time of
4 days, 22 hours, 26 minutes and 56 seconds. She
was skippered by Michael Kettenbach from Boston,
Mass. and crew of ten.
It was a match race between the two largest boats
racing in PHRF for most of the 811 miles from
Miami down past Eleuthera through Crooked Island
Passage to Cape Maisi on the Eastern tip Cuba and
on the long run to Montego Bay. Cara and Diane, a
48-foot Baltic Skippered by Dr. Robert Schwartz of
both the New York and Bayberry Yacht Clubs,
exchanged leads four times in this classic beat, reach
and run race.
i At the starting line
Fort Lauderdale, Feb. 2- From an original fleet
of twelve entries, ten yachts set off from Baker's
Haulover Inlet, just north of Miami. Noticeable
among the scratched boats was Maiden Great
Britain. This all-girl crewed and skippered yacht
could not take advantage of this warm-up race for its
September anticipated start in the Whitbread
around-the-world Race. Technical problems were
said to be reason for the boat's late withdrawal.
Eight yachts jostled towards the starting line at
thge o'clock. No less than seven yachts were over
starting line when the starter's gun sounded. Only the
Belgian boat, Commodore Rucanor, got it right. Off
to a perfect start, the Belgians were soon heading
north-east for Isaac's Light on the first leg of the
race. The smooth, professional way this boat pulled
away from the rest of the racing fleet, augurs well for
its attempt in the Whitbread Race later this year.
Having returned to the starting line and started
correctly, the rest of the yachts set off in hot pursuit
of the Belgians.
Two late-comers arrived from Fort Lauderdale,

having sorted out some problems, and joined in the
race. This made the fleet ten yachts. With Integrity, a
British boat, also using this race as a warm-up for the
Whitbread Trophy, was one hour and ten minutes
behind the Belgians when she crossed the starting
line. Skippered by Andrew Coghill of Barmouth,
South Wales, this former Great Britain II, a winner
of around the world races, was soon pulling away
from its fellow late-comer and quickly started to
reduce the distance behind its rivals. At the wheel of
With Integrity was that Irish leprechaun named Enda
O'Coineen. This young man has soloed the Atlantic
Ocean and is part of the organization known as Sail
Ireland. This partnership with Skipper Andy Coghill
is a delightful, boyish effort that bubbles with
enthusiasm for sailing. Much more will be heard
about these two young men in the future.
This, then, was the seventeenth start of the
MOBAY. Started in 1961, the race attracts some

Financing your dream boat
by M.S. Alson
There are dozens of financial institutions in the
Broward County area that are willing and able to
provide new and used boat buyers with convenient
financing. These creditors vary from companies that
specialize in yacht loans only, for amounts of at least
$100,000, to the large multipurpose lending institu-
tions that are more flexible.
Depending upon the price of the vessel you
purchased your financing experience can be
compared to either buying a car or mortgaging a
In the current market, yacht financing interest
rates range from 9.5 percent to 12.5 percent. The
percentage depends on the length of time the rate is
guaranteed and the amount of the loan. Most rates are
fixed for term, and few adjustable loans are available.
Down payments range from 15 percent to 25 percent
with terms ranging from 10 to 30 years. Most rates
are simple interest, with no prepayment penalties.
In general a loan applicant has to fill out a credit
application and attach the last two years 1040 Federal
Tax Returns, including all schedules, plus current
payroll check stubs. In addition, a personal financial
statement has to be completed, and a copy of the
signed purchase agreement provided. For those self-
employed, the last two years of your business' finan-
cial statements plus bank and trade references are
needed in addition to personal records.
Most creditors claim that a loan can be approved
within 24 to 48 hours after receiving the applicant's
For the year 1988, 40 percent of your yacht loan
interest is tax deductible. It will drop to 20 percent in
1989, and 10 percent in 1990.
If your yacht qualifies as a second home, that is
if it has cooking, sleeping and sanitary facilities, 100
percent of the loan interest is tax deductible.
Congress has been considering eliminating the
second home status for yachts thereby ending the
interest deduction. Boating industry leaders have
been waging campaigns to Congress, the House
Ways and Means Committee, and others to stop
possible legislation which would have a potentially
disastrous financial affect on boaters, and the
Besides qualifying financially three things are
usually necessary to mortgage a boat or yacht hull
and liability insurance, a hull and engine survey for
used vessels, and U.S. Coast Guard documentation
for larger vessels.
The majority of lenders will require hull insu-
rance for 110 percent of the loan value. Insurance
companies recommend- insurance covering the
purchase price of the boat plus additional equipment.
Premiums are based on where the vessel is navigated,
its length, and the number of months during the year
it is used. The standard deductible is one percent of
the value of the boat.
A hull and engine survey is necessary to deter-
mine the value of the vessel. It can be compared to
getting a house appraised. Some of the things a
marine surveyor looks for are cracks and other
defects in the hull and whether or not the engines are
Documentation is the method by which vessels
become federally registered with the U.S. Coast
Guard. In order to qualify a vessel must be at least
five net tons. Vessels of 27 feet or more in length
generally meet this qualification. Documented vessels
are issued an official number which is marked in a
visible place on the main beam. The official number
remains with the vessel permanently, but new owners
are required to redocument the vessel when
Documentation gives a prospective boat
purchaser the assurance of being able to confirm
ownership and proper passage of title since the Coast
Guard keeps a history record of the boat including
The advantages or disadvantages of financing a
vessel are similar to that of making any major
purchase. Check with your accountant or tax advisor
to see what type of loan, from the many types availa-
ble, is best for you.
Boat loan market solid despite upward rate pressure
By Greg Proteau
CHICAGO The nation's recreational marine
finance community remains bullish on making boat
loans despite upward movements in most interest
rates during the second half of 1988. "Borrower
fundamentals and developments in underlying
funding mechanisms are helping insure a ready
reserve of credit for boat buyers in 1989," reports
Jacqueline Forese, president of the Chicago-based
National Marine Bankers Association who serves as
manager of leasing and operations for Gumman
Credit Corporation in Bethpage, NY.
"In a rising interest rate environment, the shopper
for the loan should compare several sources bank,
savings and loan, credit union, and finance offerings
of the selling dealer then choose the best overall
loan in terms of rate, term any fees and features. The
borrower should take the time to find a loan which
best suits his or her finance. profile and not be
rushed by concern over beating the next interest rate
movement," Forese advises. She adds that winter boat
shows are an ideal place to shop for boat loans since
most lenders now consider attendance at such events
Upticks in general interest rates should not overly
concern the average individual who wants to finance
a boat purchase. With regular installment loans, the
longer the loan term or time to repay the lower
the monthly payment. "Because of lenders favorable
experience, terms are generally longer for buying
boats that for other puposes," says Forese. Most
NMBA members will extend three to five-year terms
on boat loans of $3,500 to $5,000, five to seven year

terms on loans of $5,000 to $10,000, seven to 10 year
terms on amounts to $25,000 and 15 years or more on
loans exceeding $25,000.
Last year boat loans became more like real estate
loans in their ability to be "sold" in secondary credit
markets. Explains Forese, "Many homeowners know
that the financial institution which made their mort-
gage often sells it to investors. This allows the lender
to regain the funds to make more loans, among other
benefits. The same scenario is now true in the boat

loan marketplace where secondary loan selling gains
new funds for lenders. For boat loan borrowers it
helps assure a continued flow of lendable dollars."
Ratings which make boat buyers preferred credit
customers for lenders have remained steady and in
some cases improved. Latest NMBA data confirms.
historical trends showing boat owners pay their loans
on time and rarely default. Lenders are also attracted,
to the underlying loan asset the boat which
holds its value-much better than domestic and most
imported automobiles. "These factors combine to
keep boat loan rates competitive," notes Forese.
Other aspects of marine lending have remained
stable over the past year. Downpayments required for
new boat purchases average 15 to 20 percent and are
somewhat greater for used boats. Boat loans
continue to be offered from the simplest fixed-rate
fixed term varieties to the most complex variables.
Structure can be customized for borrowers who wish
to treat qualifying vessels as second homes, or to
finance via primary home equity. Though the average
boat sold in the U.S. costs from $7,500 to $15,000,
loans on million-dollar megayachts are also easily
obtainable with correct credit qualifications.
In summarizing' development of the marine
finance market, Forese says ease of obtaining boat
loans and other advances far outweigh any temporary
rise in interest rates. "In the past, lenders thought
people who wanted a loan for a boat were a little
crazy. In today's financial world, lenders who don't
make boat loans are considered out of the main-
stream. Boat buyers were right back then and they
should feel confident in financing the boat of their

Florida brokers and boat salesmen
to be issued provisional licenses
by M.G. Swift
A director for the newly created Yacht and Ship
Brokers Section of the Division of Florida Land
Sales, Condominiums and Mobile Homes was named
last month by Van B. Poole, then secretary of the
state's Department of Business Regulation (DBR) in
Tallahassee. Any broker or salesman of used yachts
must be licensed by the DBR pursuarit to Florida
Statutes, advised department spokeswoman, Susan
Nefzger. (See: "Yacht Brokers unsure about new
licensing law," by Craig Lustgarten, page 10, August
1988, Waterfront News.)
Daniel S. Perry was officially appointed by the
now former Secretary Poole to the Yacht and Ship
Brokers post January 19th, though he was actually
hired by the DBR back in November 1988. Perry has
already met with local representatives of the marine
industry and the Florida Yacht Brokers Association
to bring them up to date, according to Van Snider,
executive director of the Marine Industries Associa-
tion of South Florida (MIA-SF).
"Enacted by the 1988 Legislature, the (Yacht and
Ship Brokers) section will be responsible for the
regulation of yacht brokers and salesman who sell,
buy or solicit the exchange of used yachts for other
persons," said Ms. Nefzger of the DBR. "The
section's responsibility is the protection of persons
from the fraud, deceit or willful negligence of any
broker or salesman", she added.

The DBR will be issuing provisional licenses to
brokers and salesmen. Along with the license applica-
tion, proof of a $10,000 (salesmen) or $25,000
(brokers) surety bond or irrevocable letters of credit
must be filed with the state. License fees will be $500
for a two-year license whether applying for a broker's
or salesman's license.
"This is higher than what the (MIA-SF) and
brokers expected but the DBR has indicated they
have no other option since they do not know how
many brokers and salesmen are in Florida", stated
Van Snider. "They must generate adequate funds to
employ staff and maintain the broker department."
Final rules are being drafted and permanent
licenses will be issued to provisional license holders,
predicted Director Dan Perry a Fort Lauderdale
native. He anticipates that it will be three months
before they get their computers on the line and
permanent licenses circulated.
Those persons wanting information on licensing
requirements from the Yacht and Ship Brokers
Section should contact Director Perry by telephoning

New artificial reef in place
Ten massive fifty-ton blocks of concrete were
placed on the ocean floor on January 3. This first
barge load of material was the beginning of Broward
County's newest artificial reef. Christened the "Port
Everglades Reef", the artificial reef will generate
tremendous environmental and economic benefits for
all of South Florida.
A barge is now making weekly trips to the artifi-
cal reef site, each time bringing 500 tons of concrete.
A total of ten barge loads of concrete are scheduled
for deployment over the next several months as two
piers are being removed from Port Everglades to
make way for port expansion and the construction of
Broward's new convention center. The demolition of
the concrete piers, where the Tracor Shipyard once
was, is being conducted by Ebsary Foundation, Inc.
After sawing the pier in giant pieces, a crane placed
each section on a barge for deployment.
As an artificial reef, the concrete will provide
habitat for many species of fish, lobster, and other
marine animals. Placed in approximately 145 feet of
water just north of Las Olas Boulevard (Fort Lauder-
dale), the reef will also generate tremendous
economic benefits. In a study by Walter Milon, an
associate professor at the University of Florida, a
conservative estimate of the worth of a new artificial
reef placement in South Florida is approximately
$122,000 annually. This was based on estimates of a
sportsman's willingness to pay for artificial reefs.
Considering that the "Port Everglades Reef" should
last for over a hundred years, the economic benefits
are considered staggering, according to the study.
When constructing an artificial reef, the water
depth plays an important part in determining who
will use the new reef. The depth selected for this reef
will directly benefit the sportfishing industry. Drift or
head boats that are so important to Broward's tourist
economy are anticipated to use the reef often. These
boats make deep sea fishing available at a low cost to
thousands of visitors and residents. The depth of 145'
allows the angler to fish near the ocean bottom in
most wind and sea conditions. Fish such as snapper,
grouper, kingfish, and amberjack will quickly make
the "Port Everglades Reef" their home. This depth is
in the middle of "Sailfish Alley". As sailfish migrate
along the Florida coast, it is anticipated they will stop
to feed over the new reef.
Environmentally, the new reef will increase the

productivity of the offshore environment Initially,
algae and barnacles will grow on the concrete
modules. After six months, soft corals, sponge, and
other marine invertebrate will form a blanket of
growth. Finally, hard corals (reef building corals) will
begin to dominate, transforming the concrete into a
thriving coral community. The nooks and crannies
provide protection for juvenile fish and lobster, while
the profile of the reef diverts the force of the strong
Gulfstream currents. Gamefish will use this shadow-
like effect as a place to rest. From microscopic
marine animals to large pelagic predators, the "Port
Everglades Reef' will become a whole new ecosys-
tem where once there was only sand.
The new reef was named after Port Everglades
Authority. The Port has been involved with the
Broward County Artificial Reef Program since its
inception. Nearly every ship that has been deployed
off Broward's coast had.made its last port of call Port
Everglades. The Port Everglades Authority has
donated free dockage for artificial reef ships when
they are being prepared for sinking. Services from the
Harbormaster's Office, Port Security, line handlers,
and the maintenance department are also donated to
make the artificial reef projects safe and successful.
Many industries located within Port Everglades
donate their time and effort. Everything from
tugboats, oil removal, agents, and cranes have been
donated to the program. Without the support from
Port Everglades Authority, Broward County simply
would not have an artificial reef program, said Steve
Summerville, Coordinator of the County's agency.
The Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo has chosen
May 12 and 13 i1989 as the dates for its 24th annual
tournament. The Rodeo will take place at the Hills-
boro Inlet in Pompano Beach, Florida.
It should be an exciting year for the Rodeo which
has announced an increase in prize money and
changes in its billfish rules.
The cash prize for the Top Overall Angler has
been increased to $15,000. This prize, sponsored by
Lowrance Electronics, had been $10,000. Besides
the first place award, the Rodeo will offer cash prizes
for the next nine places.

"Over 300 exhibitors representing a vast variety
of specialized products and services of special interest
to the salt water sports fishing enthusiast will be
found at the nation's first major public show devoted
to the incredibly popular sport," declared Joan
Spector, an organizer of The World Exposition of Salt
Water Sport Fishing.
Planned for March 16 through 19, 1989 at the
Coconut Grove Exhibition Center in Miami, the
Fishing exposition will feature fishing gear and
tackle; cockpit, bridge and tower fixtures; fishing
electronics and accessories; fishing resorts and
services; and fishing boats and yachts.
Show hours are: Thursday, March 16 Saturday,
March 18, 10 am 8 pm and Sunday, March 19, 10
am 5 pm.
"If the desire to catch a 1500-pound blue marlin
is at the hundred-fathom curve of your soul," queried
Spector, "then March 16-19 you have to be in Miami
at the Coconut Grove Exhibition Center!"
William Thies and Sons, local distributors of Miller
Lite Beer, the Slam has doubled in value because it
was not won in the last tournament.
The Rodeo has also set minimum weight require-
ments for billfish.
The new Rodeo rule is identical to the Fishery
Management Plan for Atlantic Billfishes regarding
the weight for blue marlin (200 pounds) and white
marlin (50 pounds). However, the Rodeo will raise
the weight limit on sailfish to 50 pounds. The FMP
established the weight for sailfish at 30 pounds.
"In the interest of conservation, the Rodeo
Committee felt it necessary to establish a higher
weight limit for sailfish because of the large number
of sailfish caught in the 40-pound range ia May,"
explained Phil Maus, Rodeo president
In accordance with state regulations, registered

Power Squadron celebrates 75 years
by Bill Husted
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. The instructions from
Chief Commander William D. Selden were simple
"Transport the ensign throughout the United
States by boat any kind of boat but only by
So begins the "Voyage of the Ensign" as a
visible expression of dedication and service to
commemorate the 75th anniversary of United States
Power Squadrons (USPS) the nation's largest,
private organization dedicated to boating safety.
Five oversize USPS ensigns were presented to
five district commanders at ceremonies during the
boating organization's annual meeting to be attended
by 1,200 delegates at the Fontainebleau on Miami
Beach in early February.
From Miami Beach on February 12, the ensigns
began their nautical voyages entirely by boat along
both Atlantic' and Pacific coasts, as well as every
major inland waterway, to virtually all 440 USPS
squadrons in 33 districts throughout the country.
On March 5 Hollywood Power Squadron
Commander Randell W. Snow will be delivering one
of specially designed ensigns to Fort Lauderdale
Commander Milton B. Pulch at the 15th Street Fish-
eries/Lauderdale Marina complex around 11a.m. On
March 11 Pulch will deliver the ensign to
Commander Joesph A. Caldwell of the Coral Ridge
Squadron who will in turn pass it to Pompano
Beach's Commander, George J. Bolint.
A marine Log Book is accompanying each ensign
to record the highlights of the trip and the names of
all those members and dignitaries who have partici-
pated in various anniversary celebrations along the
Ensign and log transfers are taking place aboard
large and small boats, and the exchanges are occur-
ring by boat on the water or in a trailer whether it be
power or sail, a rowboat, canoe, kayak or even
The "boating batons," if you will,, will converge
at Richmond, Va., site of the fall USPS Governing
Bord meeting beginning September 16. After an
anticipated review by President George Bush in
Washington, the ensigns and logs will travel to
Raleigh, N.C., where they will be on permanent
display in the historical archives at USPS national
\ United States Power Squadrons now boasts a
membership of some 70,000 in virtually every state,
Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and other parts
of the world where Americans congregate.
Dedicated to making pleasure boating safer and
more enjoyable, the organization offers a Public
Boating Course which has already been taken by
more than 2-1/2 million people. USPS also joins
other boating organizations to maintain safety aware-
ness during National Safe Boating Week as well as
throughput the year.
USPS members are also credited with perform,
ing an invaluable public service by reporting addi-
tions and corrections to nautical and aviation charts
under a cooperative agreement with the National
Ocean Survey. (NOS).
Squadron members may enroll in a number of
advanced courses to include seamanship, piloting,
position finding, dead reckoning plotting and celestial
navigation. Additional courses include sail, weather,
marine electronics and marine engine maintenance.
These and many other USPS activities serve to
perpetuate nautical traditions and the very beginnings
of the organization. When gasoline-powered craft
were first starting to appear in 1912, the Rear
Commodore of the Boston Yacht Club formed the
Power Squadron of the Club to provide instruction in

Other eastern yacht clubs soon learned of the
educational program and sought participation. In
1914, representatives from 70 yacht clubs and
boating associations met at the New York Yacht Club
to form the United States Power Squadrons.
