Safe Boating Week's in June


National Safe Boating Week is a period set
aside each year so all who have a concern for the
safety of recreational boaters may rededicate their
efforts. This year the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary and U.S. Power Squadron again have
the beneficial co-sponsorship of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida
(MIASF). This combined effort permits the
boaters to be reached with safety information at
all marine dealers and marinas in South Florida.
An intensified campaign is being mounted to
have the recreational boaters who have cause to
question their abilities or knowledge to enroll in a
safe boating class. At the same time attention is.
directed to all skippers who question the safety
equipment aboard their boats to request a
Courtesy Examination.
To accomplish the desired safety goals an
entire series of printing has been prepared by the-
MIASF as a public service. To attract attention,
there are window showcards and countertop
display holders for return postcards. The cards
are to facilitate the boaters sending in for both
classes and examinations. There are also lists
showing where classes can be found and which
boat ramps will be manned for examinations.
All of the printing material will be available at
marine dealers throughout South Florida.
Those classes which will be offered to the
recreational boaters who care to improve their
knowledge are: Basic Skills and Seamanship,
Sailing and Seamanship and Coastal Navigation.
The Coast Guard Auxiliary and Power Squadron
do not make any charges for instructions,
however, a small charge is made for materials.
For the skipper who wishes to have a free
Courtesy Examination this is an opportunity to
have all of the vessel's required safety equipment
checked. NO OFFICIAL IS EVER NOTIFIED
OF ANY FAILURE OF ANY PORTION OF
THIS CHECK. Only the boater and the examiner
will know if all equipment is aboard and if
everything is functioning properly. If all is in
order, a Safety Seal is awarded to the vessel,
Many insurance companies are offering a rebate


on the vessel's policy to the skippers who qualify
by passing the Safety Class or to the vessel
which has been awarded the U.S. Coast Guard
Safety Seal.


Commentary: Safe Boating record is
reflected in public sentiment
Results of focus group studies conducted in
high-density boating areas around the nation
reveal that public perception accurately reflects the
good safety record documented by current
boating statistics: namely, that during a period of
unmatched growth in the boating population,
public and private safety initiatives have reduced
boating-related fatalities to a 28-year low. In
singling out intoxication and stupidity as the
primary reasons for safety breaches on the water,
however, survey respondents indicated that they
are aware of another fact borne by statistics: 60
percent of boating accident occurring today-
involve operators under the influence of alcohol,
drugs or both.
Undertaken by the National Marine
Manufacturers Association to determine public
perceptions about boating and safety the survey
covered questions on awareness, attitudes and
suggestions regarding boating issues. The focus
group format was chosen for its flexibility in
allowing participants to voice their feelings about
issues they considered most important.
Conducted during December 1988 and January
1989, sessions included both boating and non-
boating groups in Milwaukee, Tampa, Los
Angeles and on Long Island.
Boaters and non-boaters alike knew of
problems concerning drinking and driving a boat,
overcrowded waters, speedsters and pollution
(especially industrial and medical). But awareness
of these problems did not change respondents'
basic attitudes towards boating as a pleasurable
activity. For both groups, recreational boating
evoked images of freedom, peacefulness and
escape from everyday worries.

Editor's log


The City of Fort Lauderdale is going to levy
fees on water taxis much like land-bound cabs.
"Treat a 'wet' jitney like a 'dry' jitney," advised
Mayor Bob Cox at a city commission meeting in
May. His colleagues on the commission agreed,
assessing a $50 per boat occupational fee for
canal cabs operating on the city's waterways.


A 200-slip marina within
Everglades is being proposed.


Port


Marine improvement projects in several
Broward County communities have won
endorsement from the county Marine Advisory
Committee for Florida Boating
Improvement Program funding. Dredging of
the ICW near Fort Lauderdale's 17th Street
Causeway Bridge in anticipation of next year's
Whitbread Round the World Race stopover and


its deep hulled sailboats in that city will receive
state funds. Also, in Fort Lauderdale, hull-out
facilities will be improved and 32 live-aboard
docks constructed at Riverwalk's 7th Avenue
Boat Ramps with help of the boating funds.
Pompano Beach will be getting a financial assist
with the renovation of the old Yardarm site at
Hillsboro Inlet. Hollywood is planning to
upgrowth its municipal marina electrical and
bumper systems. Oakland Park and Coconut
Creek got boating projects endorsed.

The 1989 Regatta Time in Abaco is
planned for June 23 to July 4. Sailboats will be
racing off Hope Town, Marsh Harbors, Man-O-
War, Treasure Cay and Green Turtle Cay. Call
809-367-2663 or 367-2222 for registration
instructions.

A tough 4,000-mile sailing race from Pearl


Harbor to Hiroshima starts June 18. Four
classes will race, ranging from 10 meters to large
IORs. Organizers are labeling it an "appeal for
world peace." A $4,000 prize will be awarded to
each yacht that finishes the race. The entry fee is
$400. Contact the Royal Hawaiian Ocean Racing
Club in Honolulu at 808-941-1273.

twin-pack glass treatment and
conditioner under the name II
STEP. The STEP I and STEP
II product has two distinct
functions. STEP I GLASS
TREATMENT is formulated
to easily dissolve and remove
those impossible baked on
water stains from boat
windows. Not only are the
stains annoying and reduce
visibility, but in time they
become permanently etched
into the glass, which can be
very costly to replace. STEP II
GLASS CONDITIONER
when applied to the treated
glass is designed to help
prevent the stains from
reappearing. It also greatly
improves foul weather

4 Waterfront News June 1989 Letters


Looking for the

New River Inlet

Editor
I would like to pass on some information for
Bryan Brooks who asked: "Where exactly was
the New River Inlet?"
The sources of my information are from
discussions with my late father, William Moesly,
who moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1911 and my
brother, U.W. "Bill" Moesly, who was born in
Fort Lauderdale in 1912, were commercial
fishermen and used the old inlet frequently in the
1930's.
I also can remember back in the 1930's when
I swam and played in the inlet, on the jetties, in
the creek, the lagoon, and in and around the ruins
of the Bumham mansion [see sketch].
I remember the lagoon, about a mile long,
that ran north and south just to the west of the
beach and south of New River. This lagoon was
connected to the south side of the inlet by a lovely
clear creek, which permitted the tide to flow in
and out
My father told me that the inlet used to move
about north and south along the beach, almost to
where the port is now. Of course, this was before
1922 when the old jetties were built.
My brother Bill remembers the creek that
connected the inlet to the lagoon. He also
remembers seeing the inlet after the 1926
hurricane when it had moved south of the south
jetties.
He told me as well that the inlet that really
moved was at Whiskey Creek. He went through
it a couple of times in a boat.
In 1947 Fort Lauderdale had a serious flood
from a small, but wet hurricane. To help release
the, starljng waters a canal was dug through
A1A, and the old inlet to the ocean. It only
flowed a couple of days before it filled in.
If you could get the ecologists to rattle their
drums and reestablish the old creek, it would be
about where the firehouse is now.
Don Moesly,
Cocoa, Florida


Safe Boating Week
Editor
National Safe Boating Week is June 4-10,
1989. Boating safety is the foundation of the
United States Power Squadrons, and this spring
the Ft. Lauderdale squadron will hold its Safe
Boating Course for the public every Tues. and
Thurs. nights beginning May 16th. The course
lasts, six weeks and will be held at St. Jeromes
Catholic School, 2525 South-west 9 Avenue, Ft.
Lauderdale.
With Broward County becoming the boating
capital of the country, and the number of boat
registrations increasing at a rapid pace, boating
safety classes are becoming very much a
necessity. If state licensing becomes a reality,
classes such as this may become a requirement.
With this, I would greatly appreciate an
announcement of our class in your next issue.
For those novice boaters we want to spread the
word... "Know before you go!"

From a child's memories of New River Inlet, circa 1920's


Marine educator concerned about NOAA


Editor's note: The following is an open letter to
Florida's U.S. Senator Bob Graham from the
interim dean of the University of Miami's School
of Marine Science.
Senator Graham:
Several years ago NOAA planned to move the
headquarters and associated personnel of the
Southeast Fisheries Center (SEFC) out of Miami
and eventually to drain and close the Miami
Laboratory. Plans then also included moving the
NOAA ship base and Research Flight Facility.
Fortunately, Congressional intervention prevented
this from happening. Recent events, however,
make it clear that the moving plans regarding the
SEFC are surreptitious and still very much alive. I
am writing you with the hope that you will again
be able to prevent the erosion of Miami as a center

The only 'freebie'

he reads
Editor
While scanning the Waterfront News at the
Fort Lauderdale Bahia Mar Boat Show, I was
reminded that this is only paper that appears on
my front lawn that I read! For boaters, would-be
boaters, and dreamers -- it keeps you current.
The ads are mandatory reading. Keep up the
good work.

of excellence in marine research.
As a bit of background, the SEFC is an or-
ganization consisting of six federal marine
fisheries research laboratories within the National
Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in the
Department of Commerce. The SEFC laboratories
are located throughout the Southeastern United
States from North Carolina to Texas with the
main laboratory in Miami just across the street
from us on Virginia Key. There are now five such
fisheries research centers within the United States
(Woods Hole, Miami, La Jolla and two in
Seattle). NMFS also has five regional offices
(Gloucester, St. Petersburg, Terminal Island,
Seatle and Junea) which have responsibility for
management operations.
The SEFC director and staff are mostly
highly trained scientists or technical people who
must maintain their "credentials" to have
credibility in providing scientific advice for
fishery and habitat management and for directing
and administering scientists and their research
programs. Therefore, the other four center
directorates in the country are, like the SEFC,
located in their main laboratories which in turn are

NOAA moves


closely located with major academic marine
research institutes (Woods Hole Oceanographic
Institution, Scripps Institution of Oceanography
in La Jolla and the University of Washington in
Seattle).
My specific interest in this matter stems from
our close working relationship with the SEFC
director, deputy director and other SEFC
headquarters personnel. For example, previous
directors, the current deputy director and two
other senior headquarters personnel serve as
adjunct faculty, give lectures, and advise graduate
students. One is presently the editor of the
Bulletin of Marine Science, the most prestigious
of all marine science journals specializing in the
tropical and subtropical environment. Our
students find part-time work at the SEFC to
support their studies and find jobs there upon
completing their degrees. Our faculty conducts
joint research with the scientists at the SEFC and
its Miami Laboratory; an example is the Southeast
Florida/Caribbean Fishery Recruitment Study
(SEFCAR) that you helped to fund and for which
we have finally just received the first funds.
What has transpired recently is as follows:
The Northwest and Alaska Fisheries Center in
Seattle was sub-divided into two centers. The
previous SEFC director was transferred from
Miami to Seattle into the position as director of the
new Northwest Center. The vacant SEFC director
position (now renamed the Science and Research
Director and reporting to the NMFS Southeast
Regional Director rather than to Washington
directly) was advertised as located in St.
Petersburg rather than in Miami and filled in St.
Petersburg with an individual transferred from
Washington, D.C., who for some reason,
personally did not want to move to Miami. Then,
this person was detailed to be the acting Regional
Director in St. Petersburg whose position has
been vacant for over a year. Two secretarial
positions were also vacated and likewise
reassigned from Miami to St. Petersburg.
What prompted me to write you is that the
other day the Science and Research Director came
down from St. Petersburg and, held a meeting at
the SEFC where he announced that he was going


to transfer four or five more positions to St.
Petersburg with or without the present people.
This will have a severe effect on this school. The
questions still remain as to when the remaining
parts of the center directorate, i.e. the economics
and statistics people, senior scientist and
computer center people will be transferred out. It
seems only a matter of time before the whole
center directorate has gone through this trickle-out
process. Once that happens I can guarantee that
you will see a diminution of the remaining Miami
Laboratory staff and resources.
There is no good reason for this relocation or
for the expense in both fiscal and human
resources. It will only make it easier to deplete
Miami's resources to the potential advantage of
laboratories in other states or the Southeast
Regional Office in St. Petersburg. The arguments
to relocate the center directorate are spurious.
Improved communication and responsiveness
from the center's laboratories are the frequent
excuses given for the relocation. This cannot be
the true reason since it is a management measure
of last resort and it actually argues for locating the
center directorate in its main laboratory where it
is, not in a rented office building across and
upstate, and for relocating scientists from the
other laboratories to Miami and this is not
proposed.
My concern extends beyond the NOAA
SEFC to NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and
Meteorological Laboratory, which is also located
across the street and with which we have an even
greater interrelationship. AOML is not the
strongest of NOAA's environmental laboratories,
weakened by budget erosions and loss of
personnel. The loss of the SEFC would diminish
the critical mass of NOAA personnel in Miami
making the remaining units even more vulnerable

themselves.
I would greatly appreciate your looking into
this matter of vital concern.

Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science,

start it. This battery runs down because I do not
have a charger on the generator to charged it. I
would like to hook this up to my charger on the
boat or have you any other suggestions?
Ted

Answer.
You can use a battery isolator to hook your
generator battery to your charger to keep that
battery up. You can also hook a charger to keep
that battery up. You can also hook up a charger to
your generator that will charge your battery as the
generator runs.


I'm overheating like crazy on one engine.
When I rev up it cools down a bit. But at idle I'm
running real hot. What should I look for?
Eddie

A--
If you are fresh water cooled, check for
water. Check your belts for slippage or to see if
your belt driving your pump is working. Plastic
over your intake line or your pump impellor
blades broken will cause overheating. A collapsed
hose will also restrict water flow fPr cooling
efficiency.

Commissioner Naugle proposes 'R-1' dock rental ad ban


by M.G. Swift
Whether or not waterfront single-family
residents in Fort Lauderdale can rent their
dockspace out has been resolved. They can not.
However, definitions and means of enforcement
are still vague. One city commissioner suggests
making advertising the rental of "R-1" dockage
illegal.
Non-occupant use of private docks located in
residential waterfront neighborhoods zoned R-1
or R-lA is prohibited in the City of Fort
Lauderdale, according to City Attorney Dennis E.
Lyles. But, Lyles warned the city commission at
its May 16th meeting that changes needed to be
made in the city's ordinances [specifically
Chapter 47-6.1(d)] spelling out: who an
"occupant" was, what defines "boat ownership"
and/or "use," when is an occupant "renting"
rather than lending a dock and what differentiates
"residential" rather than "commercial" use of a
dock. Attorney Lyles presented some proposed
changes to the law and suggested that the
commissioners fly them by the city's Planning
and Zoning Board and Marine Advisory.
City Commissioner Jim Naugle, who
represents southwestern Fort Lauderdale and a
waterfront property owner himself, agreed with
the city attorney and elaborated.
"Definitions need to be tightened up," Naugle
observed at the commission meeting. "Make
dockage advertising illegal in R-l," he add.
The commissioner whose district includes
North Fork of New River expressed a desire
prevent the creation of "mini-marinas"
residential neighborhoods.
Mayor Bob Cox, the owner of a commerce.
marina on Fort Lauderdale's Intracoasti
Water :y, queried Lyles, "What is 'use of i
boat'?"
A member of the city marine advisory board,
Bob Balzer, told the commission that in 1988 he
had chaired a panel set up by the board to look
into this very issue. They found that only two of
the city's seventeen waterfront neighborhood
civic associations (Sailboat Bend and Riverside
Park) approved of the rental of private docks in
their R-1 and R-1A zones. The panel concluded
that the city should enforce existing laws using
code enforcement personnel rather than the city
dockmaster.
"I'll quit my job to enforce current laws if the
city will hire me," declared Balzer.
A series of spokespersons from the various
neighborhood groups concurred with Balzer's
dockage panel observations.
"A car dealer can't put excess cars in his
backyard," stated Victoria Park resident Dennis
Nusser. "Why can a yacht broker get away with
it?" he asked the commission rhetorically.
"There are 4409 single-family ocean access
waterfront homes in Fort Lauderdale," cited
Nusser, "and 7000 to 8000 registered boats. This
is a zoning problem, not waterfront issue."
Critics of the city's efforts to control private
residential dock rentals, who were silent at the
May 16th commission meeting, have frequently
used those same figures to argue against Nusser
and Balzer. They mention "supply and demand":

too many boats and not enough affordable legal
dockage available. They worry about the impact
upon the local marine industry and the city's
economy.
In a telephone interview after the commission
meeting, Jim Naugle was asked to explain what
he meant by a ban on dockage advertising, how
such censure would be enforced and against
whom, the advertiser or the medium carrying the
ad? Naugle equated such dock ads with other
forms of illegal solicitation and thus could be
enforced similarly. The commissioner, though,

New book on
by Milt Baker
Like the anchorman in the movie Network, Phil
Hodes was mad as heir. He was not going to take it
anymore.
But Hodes is a different kind of anchorman- the
kind who likes to anchor his boat along the waterway.
And he was fed up with local authorities telling him he
could not anchor where he wanted.
If that happened to most of us, we would just huff
and puff about it, then go anchor somewhere else.
Not Phil Hodes.
He declared war on anti-anchoring ordinances,
spent weeks in the law libraries researching the case law
on anchoring, then wrote and published a book about it.
You may have met Hodes at the Miami Boat Show,
where he was flacking his book, Your Right to Anchor.
Dressed in a straw boater, sports jacket and tie, he
looked more likean errantbarbershopperthan apolitical
activist.
But he is serious, very serious about anchoring
rights. Just ask him.
Once he gets on the subject he sticks to it like a flea
to a hound dog's tail. He has a missionary's zeal.
The book looks very homespun and would have
profited from an editor's sharp pencil, but don't let that
fool you. Hodes has done a first class job of presenting
the case for anchoring most anywhere you please.
Fundamentally, he points out, the waterways of
America belong to the federal government, not the
states or municipalities. And, therefore, states and
municipalities have no authority to tell you where you
can and cannot anchor.
In making its case, the book goes back to English
common law on waterways, then traces development of
American waterways and the laws, including the U.S.
Constitution, covering them.
The fact that federal laws take precedence over
state and local laws notwithstanding, state and local
governments can make and enforce whatever laws they
r lease.


was unsure about the legal mechanics of such a
proposed ban and suggested asking city attorney
Lyles.
Unfortunately, Lyles had left town after the
commission meeting and could not be reached for
comment.
Fort Lauderdale's Marine Advisory Board
meets next at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, June 1st in
the City Hall conference room. June 6th is the
City Commission's next meeting date. At press
time, it was unclear whether this issue would be
on either panel's agenda.

anchoring rights

The fact that the laws exist, however, does not
mean that they are legal or constitutional.
Your light to Anchor cites case after casewhere
these state and municipal anchoring laws have been
successfully challenged and defeated. But it takes time,
money and sometimes attorneys to successfully
challenge such laws.
Hoses tells you exactly how to do it.
In his chapter "What to Do If the Police Move In,"
for example, he gives it to you step-by-step: how to deal
with the marine police, what to do when you are cited,
how to dress when you go to court, how to address the
judge, how to present your case how to appeal if the
judge rules against you.
And federal law is with you, he emphasizes. All it
takes is someone willing to challenge the unconstitutional
local ordinances.
The point, according to Your Right to-Anchor, is
that once a local ordinance is challenged and defeated in
court, it usually stays defeated. And defeating these
ordinances is not so difficult.
"It takes a courageous person to stand up to the
authorities," according to the book. "If you decide not
to be chased off, but stay and fight, you will not only be
fighting for your own rights against an invalid ordinance
but you will also be assisting many cruising boaters who
follow you."
To promote therights of cruising yachties to anchor,
Hodes has formed STARS, the Sailors Total Anchoring
Rights Society, andplans to issue quarterly newsletter.
The objective of STARS is to develop good
communication between all boaters, power and sail,
with one goal: to eliminate invalidanchoringordinances.
If you fancy yourself something of a maritime
lawyer and want to challenge the local gendarmes on
the issue of anchoring, an on board copy of Your Right
to Anchor could be $19.95 well spent.

Local Boy Scout leads river cleanup


by M. S. Alson
With the desire to improve his community
and to advance to the rank of Eagle Scout, Jeff
Cameron, a 15-year-old student of St. Thomas
Aquinas High School, lead a successful effort to
clean up the north fork of Fort Lauderdale's New
River. Environmentalists say this section of the
river, on the north side of Sistrunk Boulevard,
has been sorely neglected and severely polluted.
On Saturday, April 22nd, Jeff and a dozen
other Boy Scouts from Troop 456 collected more
than 50 garbage bags of trash and debris from the
river between Broward Boulevard and 1-95.
Using four boats, they combed the shores and
water, picking up bottles, milk crates, tires, a
discarded TV and everything else not part of the
natural river.
Upon completion of the project, Jeff felt that


he "helped the environment and made the river
look a lot better."
The Broward County Branch of. the
Environmental Coalition of Florida has declared
the New River's north fork an environmentally
and historically sensitive area as well as a wildlife
preserve. This fresh water wetland contains pond
apple islands, cypress swamps and mangrove
plants. Birds, manatee and turtles make this area,
considered the best urban river in south Florida,
their home.
Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Jim
Naugle assisted Jeff with his decision to choose
the river clean-up as his community service
project. "This area of the New River looks just
like the Indians left it, it's beautiful," Naugle
says. "I'm glad Jeff was able to get over there and
clean it up. I hope his leadership in this project
earns him the Eagle Scout designation because he


really deserves it."
According to Tom Henderson, scoutmaster of
Troop 456, Jeff had to come up with a project
idea and a plan to execute it. This included
recruiting volunteers and boats, arranging for
transportation, having lifeguards at the site, and
getting the trash picked up and disposed of.
"Quite a bit of effort was involved in the
project and Jeff did a great job," Henderson
commented. "He is very active in the community
and enjoys water activities; it was very
appropriate that he chose the river cleanup as his
community service project."
To achieve his goal of becoming an Eagle
Scout, Jeff has to submit a report on his project
and evidence of completing the other scout
requirements, such as merit badges, to the Boy
Scout district advancement committee. He should
know the results in a few months.


Four Intracoastal cities ask for idle speed zones


by Craig Lustgarten
At a recent press conference held along
Boynton Beach's Intracoastal Waterway, the
mayors of Boynton Beach, Briny Breezes,
Manalapan, and Ocean Ridge signed a letter
requesting that the Department of Natural
Resources implement an idle speed zone along the
Intracoastal bordering those towns to help protect
the endangered manatee.
A group of Sterling Village residents led by
activist Don Balmer has been trying to get the
speed restrictions along Boynton's ICW installed
for over five years, with little success.,
Last year, Palm Beach County turned down
Boynton's request for the speed zones. However,
Boynton had made their argument based on
mangrove protection, not manatee preservation as
is the case this time around.
Laura Widmer, Public Information Officer for
the City of Boynton Beach, stated, "I think right
now, no wake zones are the best means to protect
the manatee in our waters."
Randy Lewis, Communications Director for
the Florida Department of Natural Resources,
stated that the Marine Mammal section of the
DNR's research institute in St. Petersburg will be
studying the area through the end of the summer.


"We'll be looking at boating patterns along
with habitat and feeding areas of the manatee to
determine what level of protection is needed in the
Boynton area," Lewis declared. "Additional
signage may be recommended depending on the
results of the study."
Lewis noted that no manatee have been killed
along the particular area of Intracoastral in
question since 1985. He added that there are some
indications that the manatee is smarter than people
think-- they may be avoiding boats during the day
by resting, and then, hunting for food at night.
However, that doesn't take into account the
many manatee that are maimed by boaters. One
resident of Manalapan recently showed a
videotape to the town council which captured the
scene of a jet ski crashing into a slow moving
manatee that was swimming through the area.
The four cities are also hoping that if the
manatee speed zones are enacted along the
Intracoastal, they will be enforced by a $500 fine
or imprisonment for their violation.
Nothing is scheduled to be done about the
idle speed zone proposal until after the DNR
completes its investigation into the matter over the
next few months. Meanwhile, area residents like
Don Balmer sit and wait, praying that another


manatee won't be decapitated by some reckless
boater.
Balmer summed up his frustration by
saying, "We expect opposition to the no wake
zones from some people who own boats -- they
don't want to slowdown and they could care less
about the manatee."

West Palm Beach Kiwanis tournament offers $30,000 prize


by Craig Lustgarten
A cash prize of $30,000 will be captured by
one boat at the tenth annual West Palm Beach
Kiwanis fishing tournament on June 3rd.
The event, billed as "the richest one-day cash
prize tournament in the U.S.," will be anchored
from Sailfish Marina in Palm Beach Shores.
Close to 1,000 anglers of all ages are
expected to fish the tournament. Proceeds from
the event will benefit the Comprehensive Alcohol
Rehabilitation Program (CARP) and the West
Palm Beach Kiwanis Club Scholarship
Foundation.
Rappy Perez, director of the tournament,
stated, "We expect 175-200 boats to participate
this year. We've run this event three times
previously with this type of catch, and someone
has come away with the grand prize twice -- so
we're very excited by having an event with a
catchable catch."
The first boat registering a combination catch
of wahoo, dolphin, kingfish, and bonito will win
the grand prize. All fish must be caught, boated,
and registered by the same boat. A minimum ten-
pound weight is required for wahoo and kingfish,


along with a five-pound minimum for dolphin
and bonito.
A $1,000 prize will be awarded to the boat
with the largest total poundage of any
combination of five dolphin, wahoo, or kingfish.
Cash prizes will also be awarded for the largest
wahoo, kingfish, and dolphin caught.
There will also be a separate team
competition for the corporate sponsors of the
event. In addition, 200 special kids will be taken
fishing on driftboats in the Atlantic for part of the
day. An awards presentation for the children's
division will be held at Charley's Crab in Jupiter.
Perez related: "Unlike other tourneys held in
the area, 70 percent of the people who participate
in this event are local people from Palm Beach,
Martin, and Broward Counties."
The entrance fee for the fishing classic will
be $150 per boat. A maximum of six anglers will
be permitted per boat manning four lines. Live,
artificial, and natural bait will be permitted and all
fish must be caught on rod and reel.
A captain's meeting will be held on Friday,
June 2 at Sailfish Marina. On Saturday afternoon
from 3-6 p.m., a live band will play and food
will be served to the public. The awards

Boaters needed to get kids out fishing


by Philip Weinstock
The tenth annual Big Brothers and Big
Sisters of Broward County Fishing Tournament
will be held Saturday, June 3. The popular event
is looking for more yacht owners to volunteer
their boats and themselves to allow even more
possible participants who are on a waiting list.
According to John Kleinman, yacht broker in
Dania and an organizer of the event which will
kick off at 10 a.m. at slip H at the Bahia Mar
Yachting Center in Fort Lauderdale, there will be
at least 25 boats, but there are over a hundred
such pairs of big brothers and sisters and their
little brothers and sisters. Reservations to take
part in the tournament are made over a year
before the event.
"The kids have a grand time. Many have
never been on a boat," Kleinman, 43, said. "But
they catch a lot of fish."
Trophies are given out for the biggest,
smallest, and most fish caught during the day,
but that's not all of the fun.
When the ships come in from the fishing at 3


p.m. back to the marina, there will be a barbeque
feast coordinated by Richard Graves.
The original founder of the event is John
Weller, a Fort Lauderdale yacht broker. Weller,
43, spent one year in a foster home in New York
City. He modestly said of the event, "We just like
to get the kids out."
Weller and Kleinman call on the yachting
community to pitch in and volunteer their crafts
(25 feet or more to accommodate at least two
pairs of participants), bait and tackle, and some
sodas. The kids bring their own sandwiches.
Weller and Kleinman both said that in the
past nine years there have been no accidents,
injuries, or property damage, owing in part to the
good supervision by the big brothers and big
sisters, as well as the screening of all potential
donors.
If you are interested in volunteering your
boat for the event Saturday, please call either
John Weller at 467-8405 or John Kleinman at
921-8800.

sound financial footing.

Yacht documentation changed
New laws, effective January 1, 1989, have
changed the vessel documentation procedures of
the U.S. Coast Guard regional documentation
offices. These changes are aimed at managing the
increasing volume of yacht documentation more
efficiently and responding to today's needs.
Significant changes affect the way mortgages
are recorded, and the transfer of fishing vessels
and recreational vessels to persons who are not
U.S. citizens, among other things. The format for
bills of sale and mortgages is also affected.
Yacht brokers, lenders, maritime lawyers,
law enforcement personnel and other concerned
persons may find it essential to be updated on the
recent changes. A panel of maritime lawyers will
discuss the new laws, rules and procedures at the
seminar. The Coast Guard office in Washington,
D.C. will provide to the seminar the latest
information on pending and upcoming changes.
The seminar will be a half-day session at the
Rosenstiel School, University of Miami, at Kev
Biscayne, Florida, on June 15, 1989. Contact the
Marine Council for further details at (395) 856-
0206.

Recording studio

on the waterfront

by Jean Gordon
Michael Jackson has never recorded there.
But Peter Frampton, the Neville Brothers,
Cyndi Lauper, The Everly Brothers, Don
Johnson and Jimmy Buffet have.
"They like the privacy here," says Virginia
Cayia, vice president of New River Studios in
Fort Lauderdale. "It's secluded enough to where
they aren't hounded for autographs and we try to
make them as comfortable as possible.
"Buffet likes the idea of taking a break from
recording and walking right out the front door
right into Nathaniel's front door for a bowl of
conch chowder. On the last record, he gave
Nathaniel's an album credit for 'Food.'"
Tucked cozily on the scenic bank of New
River with the Andrews Avenue bridge serving as
aesthetic protection from a semi-bustling
downtown area, the 48-track New River
recording studio has carved a spot on the national
recording atlas by keeping up with modem
technology and offering comfortable seclusion to
renowned recording artists from all over the
country.
New River operates with two 24-track
recorders synchronized for maximum 48-track
analog abilities. As well, the studio provides
access to digital mixing facilities. (Analog
recording is the recording of actual sound onto a
tape as opposed to digital recording which
converts actual sounds onto a computerized
binary code resulting in what Cayia describes as
"a cleaner sound").
The live studio room's modem acoustical
design also attracts a proportionate share of
renowned recording artists who are looking for
specific sounds. "Don Johnson records his vocals
here and the rest of his music other places," Cayia
says. "For some reason, he likes the way his
voice. sounds in our room."
However, in attempting to keep up with the
day-to-day perfections of the recording industry,
New River Studios' founding mother Paulina
Cayia readily admits the financial pitfalls of
owning and operating a recording studio without
video recording facilities in modem day 1989.
"We record for video, but we aren't equipped for
a video facility," she says.
However, the downtown Fort Lauderdale
recording facility is the exception rather than the
rule that has recently eaten more than a
proportionate share of smaller recording studios
in the area.

The reason: New River also handles a healthy
share of commercial recording work, including
audio for Florida State Lottery television ads and
a regular customer in local "I Love 94" jingle
writer Tom Hartman. Yet, despite the hectic
booking schedule, Virginia Cayia says room will
always be available for Fort Lauderdale
businesses to book commercial recording time.
"We would like to do more commercial
jingles for local businesses because we're a
community business, too, and that would be our
way of keeping in direct touch with the local
economy," Paula Cayia says.
"But first, the banks need to be educated
about how a good recording studio can benefit the
area businesses economically through
commercials. Local advertising keeps money

flowing within the community and the banks need
to know that financing something like musical
equipment can help a local business improve cash
flow. That's the only way community business
will grow."

Dry Tortugas scuba

survey seeks crew
A national marine conservation organization
is planning to conduct a diving survey expedition
to the Dry Tortugas, Florida July 22-28. Berths
on this American Littoral Society expedition are
open to certified divers on a tax-deductible cost-
share basis.
The expedition's 6-member discovery team
will operate from a 44-foot liveaboard vessel,
since the Dry Tortugas are 65 miles away from
Key West and totally isolated. Survey activities
during "unlimited" diving will include
photographing, underwater mapping, coral and
fish counts, and transect plotting. The findings
and photos will be used for the first-ever
Underwater Guide to the Dry Tortugas -- to be
published as a fund-raising project for Project
Reefkeeper, the Society's coral reef conservation
program.
A protected national marine preserve, the Dry
Tortugas boasts wall-type barrier reefs, spur-and-
groove canyon reefs, staghorn coral forests, and.
fringing bank reefs. It is one of only 7 coral reef
areas in the Caribbean still classified as
"undeteriorated."
For an information packet, write American
Littoral Society, 75 Virginia Beach Dr., Key

Diving community sponsors a reef sweep

by Bryan Brooks
On June 10th a county-wide reef sweep, picking up .
trash off the local reefs, will be sponsored by both the. .
Ocean Watch Foundation, which is a non-profit ... *"
organization, and many of the local dive shops and dive.' i:
boat captains that charter dives off Broward County.
D.J. Meeks, one of the officers of the organization,
said that the purpose of the reef sweep, besides the
obvious need to clean up the reefs, is to make the public
aware of Broward County's reefs and problems that
have been brought to the reefs by the increasing
urbanization of the county.
One of the first major projects that Ocean Watch
Foundation has undertaken is to start a mooring buoy
system to keep the anchors from dive and fishing boats
from damaging the fragile coral that lies off Broward
Coun y.
A raffle and party will be held later at Tug Boat
Annie's in Dania that night. Some of the prizes will be
a donated scuba tank and other prizes given by the
different dive shops and captains from the area.
Jars have been placed in many of the dive shops so -
any certified diver can enter and have a chance to win
the raffle. The winners of the trash pickup will also be S ., ..
awarded at the party.
A trip for two to Jamaica worth over $400 will go
to the raffle winners. Four books of charter boat trip
tickets worth over $250 will also go to the winners.
Categories for the trash pickup include: divers who
gather the most monofilament lines, most beer cans and
most unusual garbage.
There is no entry fee.


Divers learn to update


by Bryan Brooks
It is that time of year. The water is turning
warmer -- warmer for south Floridians -- the hot
summer months lay ahead. Now that the tourists
have mostly left, it is time for us to go diving,
diving into that calm, warm water that we call
home.
But, and this is an important but, have you
checked your gear out lately? Has it been over six
months since you have gone diving yourself?
If you haven't been diving for awhile and you
haven't checked your gear out lately, save
yourself a bad dive and a possible disastrous
experience. Take the time to update yourself and
your equipment.
Take your regulator to your local professional
dive shop for that important pressure check. Also
check the little O-ring to your pressure gauge.
This is easy to check. Just turn the regulator on,
put the gauge in some water and see if air streams
out of the point where the gauge fits onto the high
pressure hose. Your dive shop can repair that in
seconds.
Check the Visual Inspection sticker on your
tank to see if it is up to date. Check the Hydro
date also. Your tank might be out of Hydro, then


your dive shop can't fill the tank for you.
Check the straps to your fins and mask, so
that the first time you put all this stuff on it
doesn't break when you are out on the ocean.
If you haven't been diving for awhile, either,
get an update pool checkout with your local
instructor, or if nothing else, jump into your own
pool with your equipment on.
This doesn't mean that you aren't certified. It
just makes good sense if you haven't been diving
for awhile. It's the old story, what you don't use,
you lose. After you hit the pool with the
equipment on your back, you will find out that it
all comes back to you. This is important. It is
better to jump into a pool with no waves and clear
visibility and get the kinks out, than to jump off a
rocking boat in heavy current only to find out that
you have forgotten to do something basic, like
turn your air on.
It is that time of year again. Enjoy the
summer diving season, get ready for lobster
season by being in the best shape you can be in
and get your equipment in good condition also.
With equipment, I've always found out that if I
take care of it, it takes care of me. Good luck and
happy diving this summer.

Radioactive waste helps solve Black Sea mystery -


by Jack McClintock
One form of radioactive waste doesn't go to
waste. Tritium, a radioactive isotope of hydrogen
and by-product of nuclear fission, rained to earth
in vast quantities during the atomic bomb tests of
the 1960's. Harmless to humans, it is used today
by scientists studying the makeup of the world's
oceans and how water moves within them.
"It's probably the only positive thing that
came from the tests," says Dr. Zafer Top of the
Tritium Lab at the University of Miami's
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science, whose recent tritium-based study of the
Black Sea reveals both new information about
that mysterious body of water -- and fresh
mysteries.
Tritium's radioactivity makes it detectable,
and its known rate of decomposition into Helium-
3 allows one to calculate "ages" of water masses
in the ocean. "It's a perfect tracer," Top says.
"It's like an ink blob. Combined with Helium-3,.
you get a measurement of time, too."
Using tritium, scientists have learned a great
deal about the world's oceans. They can now
accurately describe the large-scale movement of
deep water in the North Atlantic. They can say
how long it takes water from the Labrador Sea to
flow down to the Middle Atlantic (about two-and-
a-half years) and how long the ice remains in the
polar Arctic basin before being renewed (it is
renewed every three to five years).
"Deep-water formation is one of the
fundamental questions of oceanography," Top
says. "Many of us are trying to understand it in
many ways."
In the first U.S. large-scale systematic study
of the brackish Black Sea, in whose depths is the
largest oxygen-less basin in the world, Top
describes a complex interaction of salt water and
fresh, warm water and cold.
The Black Sea is bounded by the Soviet
Union on the north and east, Romania and
Bulgaria on the west, and Turkey on the south.
The shore is a Soviet resort. Turks use the shore
for the cultivation of tea, tobacco and hazelnuts.
A thin layer of oxygen-rich water on the surface
supports fisheries for four countries..
But what the Black Sea really is "is a
chemist's heaven," says Top, a Canadian of
Turkish descent.
Top and his colleagues found a basin 2,200
meters deep, oxygenated water on the top 110
meters, the rest of it laden with hydrogen sulfur
(gas smelling of rotten eggs) all the way to the
bottom., Variations of water density maintain an
order in what Top calls "this giant soup bowl."
Water tends to become denser as depth increases;
in the Black Sea, the bottom 300 meters is of
equal density.
"To an oceanographer's mind, this means
there is instability," Top says.
What sort of instability, and how was it
created?
At the Black Sea's western end, at a depth of
40 meters, a trickle of very warm salty water
enters from the Mediterranean through the
Bosporus. This warm, salty, dense water sinks --
sometimes all the way to the bottom -- and
apparently remains there. Also entering the Black
Sea, mostly from the north, are cold, freshwater
rivers. This sometimes icy water floats on top,
creating the oxygenated layer below which
nothing can live.
In its geologic past, Top says, the Black Sea
apparently went through various phases,
sometimes as a lake cut off from other bodies of
water, sometimes as a sea connected to the
Mediterranean via the Bosporus straits. About
7,000 years ago, the Bosporus straits opened up,
allowing in a flood of Mediterranean water. It is
possible that the dense water at the Black Sea
bottom has changed little since then, as Carbon-
14 dating gives an age of 2,000. The difference
between the 7,000 and 2,000-year dates, Top


suggests, is caused by the Mediterranean trickle.
There is, as yet, no complete explanation.
And the Black Sea is changing rapidly. In
addition to natural alterations, man is also
changing the Black Sea. To create hydroelectric
power, the Soviets have been damming rivers,
thus reducing their input into the sea. This, Top
says, will allow more Mediterranean water to
flow in.
The results of Top's 1988 study are only just
becoming available.,
"Over the next few years we will know much
more," he says..

Sea turtle program to
continue in southern Broward
Hollywood -- The Broward County Parks
and Recreation Divisionhas announced that it will
continue the Sea Turtle Conservation Program
activities formerly conducted by the South
Broward Park District under the overall direction
of the Erosion Protection District of the Broward
County Environmental Quality Control Board.
These activities, permitted through the State
of Florida Department of Natural Resources,
include surveying of the entire beach coastline
from south of the John U. Lloyd State Recreation
Area to Hallandale (a joint effort involving the
Division and the cities of Dania, Hollywood and
Hallandale) and the operation of the Sea Turtle
Hatchery at Hollywood North Beach Park by the
park staff. The Division preparation to date for
the 1989 season has included the renovation and
relocation of the Sea Turtle Hatchery within
Hollywood North Beach Park.
The conservation program provides baby
turtles a better chance for survival by protecting
their nests, relocating their eggs to a hatchery, and
a supervised release of the baby turtles to the sea.
May is the season for laying of eggs, easily
identified on the beach by the appearance of a
large domed mound and a circular trail from the
ocean to the mound and back to the ocean. It
should be noted that sea turtles and their nests are
protected by law and that only trained personnel
who have permits may handle the nests, eggs or
baby turtles. Violators are subject to fines and/or
imprisonment.
Anyone spotting a nest, eggs, or baby turtles
is urged to contact the staff of Hollywood North
Beach Park immediately at 926-2444 or Nova
University at 925-7496. Anyone wanting to take
part in the program in South Broward as a
volunteer should contact Hollywood North Beach
Park.

The most common food poison: ciguatera.


By Jack McClintock
The most commonly reported food poisoning
is not salmonella or botulism or amoebic
dysentary but ciguatera -- found in the flesh of
tropical reef fish. More than 400 species, sold
across much of the 'United States, have been
implicated as carriers.
Fish is ten times more likely to give you food
poisoning than beef, seven times more than
chicken, six times more than pork, according to
Ellen Haas of Public Voice for Food and Health
Policy.
At the same time, fish consumption is up 20
percent since 1980. The average American eats
more than 15 pounds per year.
Ciguatera can be an extremely debilitating
disease.
Symptoms usually begin within an hour of
eating the fish. They include nausea, vomiting,
stomach cramps and sometimes diarrhea. Then
they get worse. Many experience a crawly, tingly
or electric-shocklike sensation around the lips,
tongue, throat, fingers and toes, often followed
by severe itching all over the body and a rash or
blisters. Hot objects may feel icy, cold objects
feel hot to the touch. The victim has severe
headaches, dizziness and lack of coordination.
There is pain in the muscles, joints and bones.
The teeth may feel loose. Fatigue sets in. The
victim may be bedridden for days, weeks,
months or, occasionally, for years.
The symptoms last for an average of six to
18 months but they can persist for as long as 25
years. An occasional side effect is paranoia.
There is no known test for the detection of
ciguatera in fish. There is no known pre-
ventative. There is no known cure. Only a
handful of doctors -- in South Florida and Hawaii
-- can recognize ciguatera. In the rest of the
country many -- perhaps most -- have never heard
of it. None can do anything for the victim except
treat the symptom. Acute episodes are sometimes
treated with mannitol, an artificial sugar.
Nobody knows how many cases of ciguatera.
occur in the U.S. every year -- unrecognized,
unreported, untreated, un-cured. The only way to
prevent ciguatera is to understand it and, when
buying fish, know exactly what you are buying.
But that isn't easy, says Don de Sylva of the
University of Miami's Rosenthal School of
Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), who
has studied ciguatera since the 1950's.
To understand why, you must know what's
been learned about ciguatera itself. Scientists
believe the malady is caused by micro-organisms
called dinoflagellates that live on tropical coral
reefs. Small fish eat them. Larger fish eat the
smaller fish, the toxin becoming ever more
concentrated as it moves up the food chain.
Unfortunately, says RSMAS's Daniel G.
Baden, who studies the dinoflagellates,
addressing the consumer of reef fish: "You are
the end of the food chain."
The fishes most likely to carry ciguatoxin are
the large, predatory reef fish. These include the
barracuda, grouper, snapper, jacks, mackerel,
parrotfish, surgeonfish and wrasse families. But
within these families, not all species carry

ciguatoxin.
Of the Caribbean fish, those thought to be
safe include Nassau grouper and red grouper, the
vermilion snapper and yellowtail snapper. True
red snapper is believed to be safe -- but many
other red-colored snapper-like fish are sold under
that name, and may not be safe.
Matters are even more complicated.
Within a given species most individual fish
may be safe, while a few -- especially the largest
-- may be toxic.
Toxicity most often depends on the fish's
point of origin -- the particular reef on which it
has fed, says de Sylva, who is studying the
location of safe and toxic reefs in the Caribbean.
Some are safe, he says, and others toxic.
This leaves the fish consumer with a
problem.
There is simply no way to tell if a particular
fish -- caught or bought -- is toxic without
sensitive, expensive chemical analysis -- which
destroys the fish. The toxins cannot be tasted. No
amount of washing, freezing, cooking,
marinating, smoking or irradiating will render
them harmless.
Folk assays have evolved in the Caribbean,
whose people have known for centuries that some

weakened by the dinoflagellates and does not
fight well when hooked.
The trouble with these home tests, de Sylva
says, is that none of them works.
Then how do you tell what fish is safe to eat?
The best way to avoid ciguatera, de Sylva
says; is to avoid the large, predatory fish from
tropical coral reef areas. "Remember that smaller
specimens in Florida may usually be eaten
without harm," he says.
"Smaller" means three to five pounds in
snapper or hogfisi, 10 pounds for grouper in
Florida. Never, he says, eat a barracuda over
three pounds.
Any freshwater fish is safe. So is any
saltwater fish that does not feed on the reefs.
These include tuna, wahoo, swordfish, marlin,
dolphin. Also safe are inshore and estuarine fish
such as snook, redfish, sea trout, drum, croaker,
whiting, mullet, sheepshead, flounder and grunt.
Other safe fish, he says, are sailfish, Spanish
mackerel, small king mackerel and yellowtail
snapper.
In addition, non-migratory snapper and
grouper caught in the Gulf of Mexico are safe,
since the Gulf has virtually no coral reefs to
shelter the toxin.
But how do you tell what fish you are
buying?
"If you buy whole fish," de Sylva says, "you
can tell what it is, of course, if you know fish.
Even that isn't always easy. There are 19 species
of snapper in the Caribbean, for example. "But if
it isn't whole, you usually have no idea. I've
been eating fish all my life and, frankly, I cant tell
them apart if it's a large filet cut into smaller
pieces. Customers can be duped easily.
Recently, consumer groups have called for
stricter fish inspection and closer attention to
accurate identification and labeling.
It isn't going to be easy. But, says de Sylva
and other experts, it is overdue. "Deception is
rampant in fish sales," he says.
"In 99 percent of the fish we eat, we don't
know what they are and it doesn't really matter.
In one percent, it does."

18 Waterfront News June 1989 Sailing


by Mindy Leaf
You can find the sex-biased statistics in any
boating magazine's statement of readership, in
marine trade studies or simply by asking your
neighborhood chandler. Boaters and sailors -- at
least those whose names appear on billing
statements -- are still overwhelmingly male.
What your eyes tell you on a Sunday
afternoon's cruise down the Intracoastal is
another story altogether. And even (or especially)
those magazines tailored to male readers will
feature the female form on a majority of their
cover shots as representative of the maritime
experience.
We all know gals are to be found on boats
about as much as guys. We see them perched
high on powerboats, sunning on sailboats and
lounging decoratively on a yacht's aft deck. What
we don't see -- at least not often -- are women
standing at the helm.
Some blame the dearth of female captains on
typical male machismo -- the insecure man's need
to act as captain, give orders, always be in
control. Others consider it the result of years of
sexist nautical tradition which expects women to
decorate the bow in a bikini and assume
"sandwich duty" while the men take care of
running the boat.
For women into powerboats, there seems, as
yet, to be no relief on the horizon. But times are
definitely a-changin' forladies who wish to sail.
Aspiring female sailors now have a number of
places to turn to for comprehensive sailing
instruction free from the stress and
competitiveness often experienced in classes
taught by and with men. Nurtured by their own
kind, many suddenly lose long-standing fears
and inhibitions. They quickly become adept at
charting a course, piloting, repairing and
maintaining basic equipment... hands-on skills
which make them feel right at home in the role of
captain.

The Making of a Helmswoman
Womanship, of Annapolis, Maryland, and
Women For Sail, of Sarasota, Florida, are two of
the largest such specialized sailing school
operations, attracting women of all ages and
boating backgrounds throughout North America.
Ever since Womanship was launched five years
ago, followed by Women For Sail two years
later, the schools have experienced phenomenal
growth both in student registration and fleet size,
not to mention ever-expanding curriculum and
cruising destinations.
Womanship offers a two- or three-day
daytime-only aboard course, in addition to seven-
to nine-day comprehensive liveaboard programs
departing from both U.S. coasts and the
Caribbean. Depending on season, class waters
include the Chesapeake Bay, Florida's West
Coast and the Gulf of Mexico, Long Island, New
England, the Pacific Northwest and the Virgin
Islands. Womanship's founder/president
Suzanne Pogell says that popular demand has
caused them to add a few "couples" and family
courses to their all-female programs. Specials for
1989 include weekly learning "Flings" to the

Virgin Islands and Caribbean, and "Sail Yourself
Safely Home Clinics" hosted by private yacht
clubs and sailing associations.
Women For Sail holds three-, five- or seven-
day liveaboard coastal courses which depart,
depending on season, from Sarasota or
Annapolis. In addition to coastal cruising tailored
to beginners and intermediates, Women For Sail
also offers intermediate and advanced sailors a
week of offshore adventure sailing from Sarasota
to Key West and the Dry Tortugas. This year,
they are promoting a new, week-long cruise/learn
vacation in the Virgins Islands at a special,
introductory price.
Both sailing schools boast experienced, U.S.
Coast Guard-licensed female instruc-tors,
comfortable and fully-equipped popular, mid-
sized cruising vessels, limited class size with
meals onboard in addition to comprehensive
hands-on instruction in most facets of the sailing
experience. Perhaps just as important, they are
dedicated to creating a calm and friendly learning
atmosphere that encourages a sense of personal
competence as well as pleasure in the sport. By
eliminating what female mates often consider to
be male-provoked anxiety and unnecessary
"yelling," many graduates claim to gain not only
the ability to go it alone at sea but also greater
confidence and control in their everyday lives.
Sail for your man
Learning to feel comfortable at the helm may
do wonders for a woman's ego, but she is often
not the only one to reap sailing's rewards.
Women For Sail's exuberant founder/president
Jill London tells of two recent students who had
been "drafted" by their husbands into taking a
course. The first, a novice whose husband had
given her the five-day coastal cruising course as a
birthday present was so nervous at the prospect
that she immediately threw up. "They're a young,
'thirty-something' couple from Colorado with
two sons," says London, "and the husband
suddenly got it into his head that they would sail
around the world. Neither was a sailor and he
had to work, so he sent his wife to the course so
one of them would know what to do. "She soon
came to enjoy the experience so much that she
immediately set out on her own successful
navigation.
Another lady from Miami was packed off by
hubby on a seven-day Women For Sail "learning
vacation." When her husband came to pick her up
and asked London how she did, she said, "Fine."
"That's good," countered the woman's
landlubber husband, "because I just chartered a
boat in the Caribbean and need someone to sail a
CSY 44." London beams with pride as she
reports that her erstwhile novice student
skippered the boat for ten days in 20-knot winds,
competently sailing and navigating all the way to
St. Croix.

Heritage Waterfront News June 1989 19


The 'cuda and the kid


by Bryan Brooks
The air was hot and sticky on that June day in
1950 as the skinny, tow-haired 10-year-old
walked out onto the old wooden pier. He was
carrying a light, inexpensive spinning rod and
reel. There was no breeze and the ocean was flat
calm.
It was Saturday and even though it was early
in the morning there were many other kids on the
pier, too. A group of them was peering over the
north side.
Even in those days it was known as Anglins
Pier. The pier had an old look to it, almost fragile,
as though at any time it could fall into the sea.
Eventually it would, as a hurricane in the 1960's
would rip it apart, forcing the owners to rebuild it
to be the modem fishing pier that it is today.
The skinny kid wondered why everyone was
looking down at something in the sea. He made
his way through the group, and soon he could
see what they were staring at. He could see them
under the pier laying there like sleek torpedoes.
The barracudas were huge. The didn't seem to
move. The water was crystal clear, and with no
wind, the flat, hot seas were even clearer than
usual.
His heart started to beat faster and a slight
bead of sweat came over his forehead, a forehead
covered with an old Toronto Maple Leaf baseball
cap. The baseball cap was the kid's prize
possession. He had found it inside of the old
Westside Ball Park, watching the minor league
Toronto Maple Leafs play an exhibition baseball
game. Westside Ball Park was located on West
Broward Boulevard. It has long since been tom
down to build the Fort Lauderdale Police
Department.
He looked at the kid next to him who was
trying to snag one of the large barracuda with a
triple hook. They would move away, almost
imperceptibly, to avoid the hook. Other kids were
putting shrimp on their hooks, as bait, to entice
the dark, sleek fish. But they didn't budge.
Nothing seemed to work, and soon the other kids
moved away, back to the deeper water at the end
of the pier, to fish for snapper.
The kid kept looking down at the barracuda.
He was entranced by their size in the clear water.
HI-e had never seen them so close before. His
mother had told him that they would attack him if
he wore anything shiny in the water. He looked
down at them as though they were the enemy,
something to capture and kill. It would be light
years away before, as a sport diver, he would
realize that they were an important part of the
environment, and rarely, if ever, attacked man.
Now, all he could think of was how to catch
them.
As the sun went higher in the summer sky,
his white T-shirt soaked up sweat on his young
scrawny body; the Florida summer sun was
intense, and relentless. Still there was no wind,
and the water remained clear and calm.
He moved over to the south side of the pier,
and with a small hook and some shrimp, the kid
was able to catch a little blue runner. Excitedly,
he changed hooks and put the live blue runner on
the new, larger hook. He ran back to the north
side and quickly dropped the bait into the water.
Nothing. The torpedoes never moved. Why?
He put the live blue runner right down in front of
their noses. Why were they so stupid? The large
'cudas just ignored the small fish as it danced and
ran in circles next to them. This went on for
hours.
He thought of nothing else. All morning he
stayed in the same place on the old and wor pier.
He wanted to show all those other kids how to
catch a barracuda. They had to be over ten
pounds, maybe even twenty, and no one else on

the pier had caught anything but a two-pound
snapper all moving.
Still, the barracuda never moved. He thought
they must be the slowest and dumbest things in
the world. His little blue runner was still alive and
moving quickly in and out of their group.
It was afternoon now, a slight breeze was
starting to cook up, but the kid could still see the
barracuda below clearly ignoring his bait in the
water.
Then the blue runner somehow got the kid's
line caught around a coral ledge. Stuck! The kid's
hands started to sweat onto the cork butt of the
fishing rod.
The kid noticed for the first time the
barracudas seemed to move around. Now they
seemed interested. But the kid was trying hard to
get his line cleared from the ledges so he could
finally catch the fish he had tried so hard for all

morning, so that he could show everyone on the
pier how good of a fisherman he was.
Why were the cudas interested now, now that
he didn't have control over his baitfish who
swam helpless and trapped below? The group of
four or five cudas moved slowly toward the
struggling blue runner. The kids heart was racing,
his hands felt wet, almost as though the rod
would slip through them and fall into the sea
below. If only he could free his line. He excitedly
pulled back one more time on his fishing rod.
Then it happened. The line broke and the rod was
straight and lifeless in his hands.
The skinny, tow-haired ten-year-old kid
looked down from the pier. In a split second,
almost quicker than he could see, the lazy, slow,
stupid barracudas darted into the blue runner
trapped on the boy's line. They slashed like
lightning, back and forth. The water boiled and
foamed red with the blue runner's blood. Never
had the kid seen anything move faster in the sea.
The kid's eyes were glued to the natural drama
occurring below.
Then it was over. The blue runner was gone,
and the cudas just lay there, almost lifeless, just
like they had before. They didn't seem lazy and
stupid to the kid now. For the first time he
realized that whatever they did, they did it for a
purpose.
Dark clouds were building up in the west
Florida sky for the usual afternoon summer
storms. The boy picked up his small tackle box
and headed to the pier entrance.
The barracudas had moved to take his baitfish
only when he didn't have control over the blue
runner. Did that mean that they were smart and
could think? The kid had thought only man could
think; only man was superior. Fish and animals-
were only there for man's pleasure that was
what the kid had thought.
The boy looked back toward the people still
fishing on the pier; he wondered if those people
knew that fish could think. The kid was hungry
for lunch, and could taste the dry salt in his
mouth. It would be years before he would
become aware of what he had learned this day.
Now all he knew was that it was very hot and he
was tired and confused.
