In the wake of efforts by the City of Fort
Lauderdale to enforce a ban on dockage
rentals in residential (R-1 zoned) waterfront
neighborhoods, City Commissioner Doug
Danziger is proposing that other waterfront
property be more open to marina
"It's my understanding that several things
are true about marina development in Fort
Lauderdale," reads a memo from the
commissioner to city manager Connie
Hoffman in July. First, marinas are not
permitted use in B-1 zones [business]; and
secondly, there is really not a zoning
classification for [marinas] at all. They are
kind of slo tted into the used car lot category.
"Could this be one of our problems with
marina development? Is there a reason they
cannot be permitted in B-l zones? Could the
planning staff take a look at this please? If
marinas could be allowed in B-l zones, or
even encouraged, could we provide more
boat slips for folks within the city?"

Ask Big Al
I have a 24-foot center console boat with a
150 Mercruiser engine. The engine is an older
engine and I'm thinking of getting a complete
overhaul or buying a new engine. The boat is two
years old and in ptime shape. All electronics are
installed and I like the boat. Any advice?
Being comfortable with a boat is the main
thing seeing that the boat is only two years old
and in great shape. I would re-engine the boat
and have a new and secure combo. I would look
into the new gill drives that bolt onto the transom
and up the horsepower to about 175 hp for more
power. Your boat will then be worth more and if
you trade or sell later on you will get some of
your investment back.
Dock rental Waterfront neighborhoods
address traffic roblemS
Editor's note: The following is a memo from Ft.
Lauderdale City Commissioner Doug Danzinger
to his fellow commissioners concerning dock
rentals in R-1-zoned neighborhoods. (See page 6,
June 1989, Waterfront News.)
I felt that the proposal to strengthen our
prohibition against and enforcement of dock
rentals in residential neighborhoods was a clear
and straightforward one that deserved our full
support. After hearing from marine industry
representatives, "landlocked" boatowners who
live in the city and neighborhoods that aren't
opposed to dock rentals in their area, I see that it
is a much more complex issue.
Our code currently prohibits dock rentals for
any purpose in R-l neighborhoods and we
should not ignore or selectively enforce the code.
R-l zoning must be protected. Yet we must
consider the importance of the marine industry to
Ft. Lauderdale's economy, image and lifestyle.
It appears to me that the majority of
waterfront neighborhoods are opposed to dock
rentals and I believe that we should support them
with active code enforcement. There are also
neighborhoods, however, that have no objection
to dock rentals and I feel we need a mechanism to
accommodate them. Perhaps it wouldbe possible
to create a new zoning category that would
provide the restrictions of single family zoning,
yet allow dock rentals. Those neighborhoods that
wanted such a designation would have to petition
for it. We could require a very high percentage of
property owners to sign the petition before the
city would even consider it to assure that it was
indeed the will of the whole neighborhood.
I would appreciate your reaction to this idea.
Editor's note: Below is an open letter from the
owners of the Southland Shopping Center on
State Road 84 between SW 9th and 12th Avenues

My outboard quit and I came in on my little
auxiliary engine. I can't thank you enough for the
advice you gave me in a previous column about
having a small auxiliary to use in case of trouble.
The mechanic who worked on my motor said I
had a cracked piston and I needed a new cylinder
etc.etc. I always took care of my motor, lube, oil,
new plugs, and it was running fine with no
inkling of any problem. What could have went
wrong or what could I have done to prevent this?
Without looking at your outboard engine, it is
difficult to tell what caused the cracked piston and
cylinder. There are two real possibilities. Water
getting into a cylinder will cause damage and
break a piston and a broken piston will destroy
the cylinder. Also if your water pump failed and
the engine overheated or seized you would have a
similar problem. I would check all my other
cylinders for cracks or scores before I reassemble

Ask Big Al
The following letter was returned to me in the
unopened envelope which was stamped by the
post office as undeliverable at that address:
Zenith Carburetor, Division of Bendix
696 Hart Avenue
The Universal Atomic-4 35 horsepower in
my 35-foot Pearson Alberg sloop is fitted with a
Zenith Carburetor of the same vintage. It has not
had much. use but qbout a year ago it developed
starting and stalling problems.
I bought a carburetor rebuild kit and for one-
day the problem cleared up but then, returned.
Four different mechanics traced the problem to
the carburetor. The starting problem persists and i
am writing to determine if I can ship the
carburetor back to the factoryfor rebuilding.
Please advise what avenues are open to me
short of buying a new motor to get this unit
running again. Any help will be appreciated.
Al, it occurred to me that perhaps you know
who and where Zenith Carburetor is/was
manufactured. Possibly you may have the
answers to the questions and problems presented
Zenith Carburetor is now a division of Facet
Enterprises, 1048 Industrial Park Blvd.; Bristal,
Virginia 24201. Mattie Bellamy of Zenith's sales
department advises you not to ship the carburetor
back to the factory for rebuilding. She is sending
down a list of authorized repair shops in the area,
along with maintenance literature from Zenith
Carburetor. Her phone number is 703-669-5555.
We were able to track Zenith down with the
help of the National Marine Manufacturers'
Association (NMMA). They maintain a large
directory of marine manufacturers and their
subsidiaries. The NMMA is headquartered in
Chicago and can be reached at 312-836-4747.
I tried calling you at the Coast Guard
Auxiliary at the Ft. Lauderdale base but only got
a boating class message. I have my engine torn
down and need a little advice.
Please ,rite to the Waterfront Nevs, 1224
SW 1st Ave,/ Ft. Lauderdale, FL 33315. They
forward my mail to me. I also am at the Auxiliary
Base on Saturday mornings, 9 a.m. to noon. I try
to answer all letters by combining similar queries
to save space and time. If your problem is unique
I try to answer it separately. Please, do not try to
reach me .by phone.
I can't keep my battery terminals from being
eaten away. My minus or ground cable is OK but
my positive cable terminal is a mess. What causes
this? And what do I do?
I don't know how old your battery is. If it is
over two years old it may be sulfated and not
absorbing a charge. If your regulator on your
alternator is putting out too much it will cause
gassing in the battery and corrosion will build up
on the cable ends. Cleaning the cables real good
and covering them with vaseline or grease will
prevent this and I would check the water level in
the battery to see if it is boiling out. Get an
ampmeter check to get the rate of charge. Check
the charging amount with a new battery.

Expanding to two days and moving the

complete with the music of local bands -
Heartbreak and Sidewinder and a mock-up of a
western town complete with jail. United Cerebral
Palsy, the charity chosen to benefit from the
event, will utilize the jail as a fund-raising device.
The Jaycees are also arranging for many food
and beverage concessions to be scattered around
the part on the south bank of New River in
downtown Ft. Lauderdale. Saturday's party will
run from noon till 6 p.m., according to Ron
Bowen also with the Jaycees.
The actual raft race will be held on Sunday,
September 10, starting at 10 a.m. from the
Seventh Avenue Boat Ramp. Up to 125 rafts
crewed by scout troops, civic associations,
private companies and individuals will make their
way downriver past Cooley Hammock Park
before turning around and returning to the finish
line back at the ramps.
Spectators can observe the New River Raft

Proposed marina threatened
Plans to build a 200-slip marina on the north
bank of the Dania Cut-off Canal where it enters
the Intracoastal Waterway may be jeopardized by
projected Port Everglades growth. The $400
million, 237-acre waterfront complex proposed
by Hollywood, Inc., could be pre-empted by the
port authority looking for land to satisfy a

Port commissioners "have always hungered
for thcwaterfront property along the Dania Cutoff
Canal," declared Bernard Budd, vice president of
Port officials could buy or condemn the land
to get it from the developer by eminent domain.
The port authority is discussing $50 million land
purchases for the next several years, but deny
any specific plans for Hollywood, Inc.'s
The City of Hollywood hopes the marina
project will trigger a financial boom for the
Broward county community. If the port authority
takes some or all of the developer's land, it
would kill the proposed marina and remove the
waterfront from the city's tax rolls.

& NOAA begin major fish study
by Rosemary Sullivant
CORAL GABLES The University of
Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science and the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration have begun the
first comprehensive study of fish recruitment in
the tropics and sub-tropics.
Recruitment, the entrance each year of young
animals into the adult stock, is a critical factor in
determining the population dynamics of fishes.
Understanding variations in recruitment is
necessary for accurate prediction of future stock
sizes and effective fisheries management.
Scientists from the Rosenstiel School are
collaborating with researchers at NOAA's
Southeast Fisheries Center and Atlantic
Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory on
the two-year, $1,884,000 project called SEFCAR
(South and East Florida/Caribbean Recruitment).
They will study the factors that affect both the
magnitude and the distribution of recruitment of
spiny lobster, snapper, and several grouper
species. The SEFCAR program involves a
combination of biology and physical
oceanography. It is similar to the FOCI program,
a study looking at recruitment of cold water fishes
in the Pacific northwest.
"I am delighted that this important project to
investigate the viability of warm water and
tropical fish populations in the Southeastern
United States and Caribbean region is
underway," said Congressman Dante B. Fascell
(D-Fla.). "This project will greatly enhance our
knowledge and will assist in.improving our
management of fisheries and in protecting our
natural resources -- both so critical to South
In one part of the study, researchers will
concentrate on learning more about the origins of
local reef fish and spiny lobster. "No one really
knows what percent of the local adult lobster
population is spawned here or elsewhere," says
one of the-principal investigators, Professor
William W. Fox, director of the Cooperative
Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies.
"We .don't know how many come from South
Florida, Cuba, the Bahamas, or other parts of the
Caribbean. Lobster larvae may remain in the
plankton for more than a year before they evolve
and come ashore."
Researchers will be using new molecular
biology techniques to determine the relationships
between adult lobsters, pre-juveniles, and larvae
found in the plankton. Similar studies will be
done with reef fishes.
At the same time, other SEFCAR
investigators will be making detailed analyses of
the physical oceanography of the region that may
influence the distribution and abundance of
lobster larvae and larval reef fishes. Six cruises of
the university's R/V Calanus are scheduled for
the two-year program. In addition, NOAA will
contribute several cruises of its vessels.
SEFCAR scientists will initially focus on one
particular feature inshore of the Florida current,
the Pourtales Gyre located off the central and
lower Keys. The Pourtales Gyre may keep
locally spawned eggs and larvae from being
swept away into the Gulf Stream by the Florida
current or it may bring ashore eggs and larvae
spawned elsewhere. Studies of the gyre will help
answer questions about how the recruitment of
fish populations is affected by physical features
such as currents, loops, eddies, and fronts.
In another part of the study, biologists at the
University of Miami Experimental Fish Hatchery
will be raising reef fish from eggs in order to be

Coast Guard to test more restrictive bridge opening schedule
by Craig Lustgarten
The U.S. Coast Guard has refused to accede
to a request by U.S. Representative Tom Lewis
(R-North Palm Beach) which would keep two
Palm Beach County Intracoastal drawbridges
from opening during rush hours.
Spurred on by an apparent increase in traffic
on the Parker and PGA bridges as a result of the
new Gardens Mall and population increases in the
area, Rep. Lewis had threatened to go as high as
the Secretary of Transportation in order to get his
way on the issue.
However, a compromise was reached on the
matter when the Coast Guard agreed to test a
uniform bridge schedule which will be in effect
throughout the day. For a 60-day period
beginning in January, the PGA and Parker
bridges will only open twice an hour throughout
the day, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Ken McKinnon, press aide to Rep. Lewis,
stated, "It's a test that may or not pan but, but
we're hoping that it will mean fewer bridge
openings in the future."
McKinnon added, "The goal here is to
determine the minimum number of times we
need to open these bridges to alleviate vehicular
traffic problems around the bridges and
accommodate the boating public."
Lieutenant-commander Jeff Karonis,
spokesman for Admiral Martin Daniel of the
Southeast region of the U.S. Coast Guard,
stated, "We have agreed to a temporary
compromise for validation purposes."
Karonis continued that following the test
period, a final decision will be rendered on the
matter after input has been gathered from the
general public and the Florida Department of
In the meantime, the Coast Guard has asked
DOT to extend the length of time the lights before
those bridges are green in order to allow
sufficient clearing to occur following a bridge
Marc Masciarotte, president of the Marine
Industries Association of Palm Beach County
(MIA-PBC), says that he wants to see a uniform
schedule of bridge openings instituted for all of
Palm Beach County's Intracoastal drawbridges,
and have signs posted for both boaters and
motorists so that everyone will know exactly
When the bridges are scheduled to open and can
thus adjust their travel schedules accordingly.

The MIA-PBC is against eliminating drawbridge

: Masciarotte commented, "We want to start a

regulations, so that they will understand that a
bridge is not supposed to open (for example) for

World Water Ski Championships coming to West Palm Beach
The 21st World Water Ski Championships
tournament will be held Labor Day weekend in
West Palm Beach. This is the. first time in 28
years that the tournament has been held in the
The event, sanctioned by the International
Water Ski Federation (IWSF) and hosted by the
American Water Ski Association (AWSA), will
feature competition between water ski teams from
more than 35 countries. They will compete in
slalom, tricks, and jumping. Officials expect 150
skiers will register for the tournament.
The five-day event begins with preliminary
rounds on Thursday, August 31. The final
rounds will be held Sunday and Monday,
September 3 and 4. Attendance at previous
national events held at the site has been excellent
and the organizers are expecting more than
50,000 spectators during the tournament.
Established in 1949 at Juan Les Pins, France,
the World Championships are held every two
years. The United States Water Ski Team has
won every World Championship Team title since
the inception of the tournament and will be
seeking its 21st consecutive victory.
The United States has previously hosted the
World Championships three times. In 1950 and
1957 the tournament was at Cypress Gardens,
Florida, and in 1961 at Long Beach, CA. Other
countries which have hosted the event are Italy,
Canada, Spain, Colombia, Denmark, Lebanon,
Sweden, Australia, France and in 1987, Great
Okeeheelee Park in West Palm Beach, where
the tournament will be held, is recognized as the
world's best water ski course. The U.S. National
Water Ski Championships and the U.S. Open
Tournament were held there in 1986, 1987 and
1988. Several national and world records have
been set on the course.
The water ski lake was constructed as a joint
project of the Palm Beach County Parks and
Recreation Department and the Ski Club of the
Palm Beaches. Open to the public, it is used only
for water skiing and has separate courses for
slalom, tricks and jumping. During the World
Championships, however, the main slalom
course will be used for all events.
Water skiing as a competitive sport is gaining
increased recognition throughout the world as
more countries participate in international
tournaments. The 1987 World Championships
Tournament in London, England was attended by
teams from 34 countries, including the Soviet
Union and China.
At the 1987 World Championships, United
States skier Sammy Duvall, Windermere, FL,
won the, men's world overall- title for an
unprecedented fourth time. Deena Brush Mapple,
Clermont, FL, won the women's world overall
title, and the U.S. Team won four gold, two

This diagram of the mooring buoy system designed by John Halas is the state of
the art system which REEF RELIEF has proposed for use at Sand Key and other
reef locations in the Lower Florida Keys. It Is currently In use at the Key argo
Marine Sanctuary and at Looe Key.
Coastal Engineer Steve Somerville. Somerville
was able to guide the local organization, Ocean
Watch Foundation, through the maze of required
permits from the local, state and federal
Ocean Watch Foundation board members,
Larry Rubin and D. J. Meeks said they hope the
mooring buoys will help keep divers and
fishermen from dropping their anchors onto the
fragile coral communities that live here.
Meeks said that they will monitor the buoys
for its effect on the reef. If the buoys have the
positive effect that they think it will have, they
have hopes of placing them up and down the 23
miles off the Broward County coast. By
increasing the number of mooring buoys, they
believe they can scatter divers and fishermen so
that there isn't a congregation in any one place.'
Since the sinking of the Mercedes I a few
years ago, divers from around the world have
come to Ft. Lauderdale. After seeing the local
wrecks, divers then discover the beautiful hard
and soft coral communities also available to them.
D. J. Meeks sees the increasing amount of
divers causing more and more damage to the
corals. Fellow board member Larry Rubin agrees.
Rubin states, "The mooring buoys are also a way
to bring attention to the sea life that exists off of
urbanized south Florida, and that's one of our
purposes in Ocean Watch. Hopefully, we can put
the next iiooring buoys north, around the
The environmental group has been in
existence barely one year. But, in that year they
have been able to bring to the public's attention
the plight of the coral community. Meeks stated,
"We have tried hard to get funding, as we are a
private organization. The whole basis of the
ecology out here is the reef. Without the reef the
system is in trouble.
Mccks said different clubs, dive shops and
corporations sponsor their own mooring buoy,
for $500. With that fee, the clubs and
organizations were able to put their names on
their individual mooring buoy. This is a practice.

On Saturday, July 1st, off the Broward coast,
a privately funded marine ecology organization
installed their first ten permanent mooring buoys
for divers and fishermen. The buoys were placed
on Cuda Reef, a 30-foot-deep, popular diving
spot a half mile off John U. Lloyd State Park. In
the United States, this was the first time that this
type of permanent buoy system has been used
outside of the Florida Keys.
The group was taken to Cuda Reef by Bob
and Marty Good with their charter dive boat,
Fathoms of Fun. Going underwater to clip on
the first mooring buoys were Ft. Lauderdale City

in place. He put $3000 .cash up front, said he is
going to auction off a California-style,
customized Volkswagen, with the receipts going
to Ocean Watch Foundation.
John Halas, the marine biologist from the
Key Largo National Sanctuary, Was one of the
key figures in Ocean Watch's quest to put the
mooring buoys into place. Besides the Florida
Keys, Halas is the man who has put these
mooring buoy systems in some of the more
exotic dive destinations in the world, such as the
Cayman Islands, Hawaii and Malaysia.

uses a system developed through the National
Marine Sanctuary program. That system was the
evolution of an idea hatched back in the early
1980s, when Halas and dive boat captain Gary
SRinn owned a dive shop in Key Largo. Halas
said that as a dive boat operator in the Keys he
could see the damage to the coral reefs that he and
other operators were causing in Pennckamp State
Halas said that with salty conversation
between he and Rinn over beers in a laid back
Key Largo hideaway, the permanent mooring
buoy system was born. Halas admitted it was a
birthing method that Caribbean singer Jimmy
Buffet would have approved. With Ocean Watch
divers assisting on earlier trips, Halas drilled
down 18 inches into the limestone base. At each
mooring buoy location, he attached a stainless
eye bolt. Hydraulic cement was poured into the
base, making the eye bolt attachment permanent.
On Saturday, July 1st, the different sponers
attached to each eye bolt Halas' system, which is
a polypropylene line attached to a large, white
polypropylene mooring buoy, with a floating line
for boaters to tie off on.
After each mooring buoy system was put in,
local dive charter boats immediately moved into
place and tied off on them. Rubin and Meeks
hope that these first ten buoys are only the
Bats & birds studied at West Lake
The Broward County Park and Recreation
Division announced the installation of an Osprey
nesting platform'in the preservation area of West
Lake Park. The platform, constructed by the
Division, will be placed on a 25-foot utility pole
along the lake in the center of the 1400 acre
coastal mangrove preserve. It is the first of five
such platforms planned for West Lake.
The platforms are designed to aid in the
survival of the Osprey (a threatened species in the
state of Florida). The Osprey, which feed entirely
on fish, prefer an open water habitat with
preserved vegetation nearby to roost. The largest
population of Osprey in Broward County are
found in West Lake. However, no nests, which
are formed of large bulky masses of sticks, are
currently known to be in the county (the nests can
be seen on telephone poles along the Overseas
Highway in the Florida Keys).
Also at West Lake, a survey of the Mastiff
Bat is being conducted by the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission, in connection
with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. From
June through October, naturalists and biologists
are studying Eumops Glaucinus Floridanus,
currently under review for consideration for
listing as an endangered species under the
Endangered Species Act of 1983.
Surveys are also being conducted at Secret

Sailing club readies for fall
by Sandy Albe
Gulfstream Sailing Club's annual summer
ocean racing series for novice sailors ended with
a twilight race July 15. This was an exciting
series of 3 races offering an opportunity for
novice skippers and novice crew to try their hand
at ocean racing. The novice series was started for
inexperienced sailors and skippers to race under
more relaxed conditions and to improve their boat
handling and sail trim skills. The courses were
laid to afford all points of sail.
Three classes raced: PHRF, Performance
Handicap Spinnaker and a new class for Non-
Crew Pool Chairman Garie Blackwell
assigned crews and boats as necessary to give
novices the thrill of competitive sailing with
experienced Gulfstream members. Over 20 boats
started in the series at Lauderdale Beach.
The overall winners were:
Non-Spinnaker Class: 1st Sharon Crocket,
Pip Squeak; 2nd Fritz Hublitz, Sosie; 3rd -
John Lamport, Frangipani;
PHRF: 1 Bud Reiss, Saucy; 2 Carl

Fishing August.1989 Waterfront News 15
Start kids fishing right with quality
Too many youngsters are handicapped when
they first take up fishing by being given
discarded tackle that even an experienced pro
would have trouble using.
The father who digs out an abandoned rod
and reel discarded in a remote comer of the
garage for his son or daughter isn't doing the
youngster a favor. If it wasn't good enough for
Dad to keep using, why should it work for a
youngster just learning the ropes?
Fortunately, tackle makers are conscious of
the problem and have created tackle that
youngsters can handle and master easily.
Although not designed specifically for kids, the
small spincasting outfits fill the bill for anglers 12
and under. It's an ideal set-up for the beginner,
regardless of age.
For the more experienced young angler, a
spinning reel,offers additional capability and a
step up the ladder in fishing.
For kids that leam fast, the next step up is a
professional baitcasting outfit like Dad or Mom
uses. Again, the light baitcasting reels fit
perfectly in a small youngster's small hands.
Many fishing trips have been spoiled by
youngsters using equipment they're not ready
for, and the parents spend their time untangling
backlashes instead of enjoying the moment.
Another important thing is to avoid loading
your kids' reels with wire-stiff old line
transferred from some ancient garage reel to save

More than 100 less fortunate children from
throughout Palm Beach county ages 8 to 15 will
participate in the West Palm Beach Fishing
Club's annual "Kid's Fishing Day" on August 4,
Mentally handicapped, learning impaired, "at
risk" youth and foster children will go fishing on
local drift boats. While on the water each child
will learn the fundamentals of saltwater fishing
and safe boating. Participants will receive a T-
shirt, hat, pack lunch, soda, ice cream bar and
personalized instruction from "Kid's Day"
volunteers. At days end each child will be
awarded a handsome certificate of participation.
"Fishing is one of the most enjoyable
recreational activities in the world, something
most of us can do all our life," said Tom
Twyford, Associate director of the West Palm
Beach Fishing Club. "Our goal with this event is
to touch the lives of many less fortunate kid's in
our community that would not otherwise have the
opportunity to experience a day of ocean fishing.
Twyford concluded, "whether the fish bite or not,
every child will be a winner!"

] Port pilots
by James E. Sullivan
A port pilot is a qualified" coastal navigator
taken on board a ship for the purpose of
conducting her into and from a port. The pilot has
demonstrated an extensive knowledge of aids to
navigation, dangers in the area, and routes to
berths in a particular port and is licensed as a state
pilot or a certified deputy pilot for that port.
Florida has 1146 miles of coastline, with 472
miles fronting the Atlantic Ocean and 674 miles
along the Gulf of Mexico. This coastline is
served by 15 seaports: Femandina, Jacksonville,
Port Canaveral, Ft. Pierce, W. Palm Beach, Port
Everglades, Miami, Key West, Boca Grande,
Tampa, Port Manatee, St. Petersburg, Port St.
Joe, Panama city, and Pensacola. Each has a
pilot association incorporating themselves within
F.S 310 law. The associations are controlled,
regulated, and governed by the state Board of
Pilot Commissioners and the Department of
Professional Regulation. The state board fixes the
cost of pilotage using a vessel's dimensions.
Florida's first statute regarding pilots dates
back to 1868 when pilot associations were
formed to unify and stabilize pilot services. The
state statute had three purposes: the licensing of
pilot, expansion of government regulations, and
the development of the pilot associations.
To become a pilot
There are approximately 60 state and 20
deputy licensed pilots in the state of Florida. To
become a pilot the candidate must have actively
served in a leadership position usually within the
merchant service as a ship's deck officer. The
basic requirements are found in FS Ch 310.071
some of which are here cited:
Deputy Pilot 21 years of age-- high
school graduate good physical and mental
health- at least two years service, one of which
as an unlimited 1st mate or as master of an ocean
freight and towing vessel of 1,000 gross tons or
more and to be qualified for a USCG Ist-class
unlimited pilot's license for that port in which
service is desired.
Licensed State Pilot in addition to the
above have two or more years experience as a
deputy pilot and have completed for that port the
state board-approved deputy pilot training
Port Everglades pilots board inbound vessels
at the outer sea buoy, day or night. The two
transit 34-boats belonging to the association are
painted grey with white superstructures and have
"PILOT" in black letters painted on the hulls.
They fly code flag H (pilot on board) by day and
show pilot (white over red) at night.
S -.-. ..
Vessels Requiring a Pilot
Normally pleasure boats do not require the
assistance of a port pilot unless they have a draft
of seven feet or more. Rule 310.141 is quoted:
"All vessels except vessels exempt by the laws of
the United States or vessels drawing less than 7
feet of water shall have a licensed state pilot or
certified deputy pilot on board when entering or
leaving ports of this state." A second source of
information is found in U.S. Coast Pilot 4, page
178: "Port Everglades: Pilotage is compulsory for
all foreign vessels and for U.S. vessels under
register in the foreign trade."
The provisions of the above seem to require
that the sailboats in the Whitbread race arriving
here in April 1990 must pick up a port pilot to
enter and leave Port Everglades.

Personal watercraft safety video
now showing across U.S.
by Ncncy Linden ,
CHICAGO Further promoting the safe and
responsible use of personal watercraft, the
Personal Watercraft Industry Association (PWIA)
and the Foundation for Recreational Boating
Safety and Education announce distribution of a
Rental Safety Program designed to deliver
operational basics to users of these specialized
craft. The program was funded by a U.S. Coast
Guard grant to the foundation and produced by
PWIA with assistance of the Florida Marine
Patrol. The Foundation is affiliated with the
National Marine Manufacturers Association
The safety program centers on a ten-minute
video, "Ride Responsibly," which covers such
topics as safe and courteous riding and operating
procedures, and boating's Rules of the Road.
The overriding theme of the video is that the
personal watercraft user has the shme
responsibilities as a boat operator while sharing
the waterways.Other materials are designed to be
used at on-water facilities: a laminated safety
checklist gives important operating tips and
decals reviewing these tips can be affixed to the
watercraft for easy rider referral. A poster to be
displayed at rental facilities and dealerships
emphasizes visually that personal watercraft users
must follow the same rules as all other boat
"We recognize that many personal watercraft
users are introduced to the sport through rental
situations," said Roger Hagie, chairman of
PWIA. "Many of those renters may be operating
a boat for the first time and need to be
familiarized with on-water rules and courteous
procedures. They may riot be aware of the effect
that improper or irresponsible riding can have on
themselves, on personal watercraft or boating,
Videos and safety materials are in the hands
of several personal watercraft rental operations
and boating safety agencies across the country.

encouraged these outlets to review the program
with interested current and prospective owners.
It's a good way for riders to brush-up on the
fundamentals," Hagie adds.
The Rental Safety Program is the result of
ongoing dialogue between the PWIA and boating

some states are assisting by locating rental

18 Waterfront News August 1989 Power Boats
Racing by remote-control
by Mindy Leaf
Engines revved to a roar, and suddenly
they're off: six mean cats bucking 30-foot waves
and hurricane-strength gales. Popeye's Chicken
& Biscuits careens off a turn and flips, soon
joined by dead raceboats bobbing like so many
corks. But Wally Tough never flinches. Gently
easing on the throttle, he brings Sea Hag to as
smooth a finish as the day's conditions allow.
Then Tough picks up his boat, all 10-pounds
worth of glow-fuel-powered fiberglass, and
carries it to his lakeside workbench. The racing
scene at Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah, Florida,
suddenly shifts down to reality size. But not for
long. As if intoxicated by blasting .90 hps and
the stink of model airplane fuel, the assembled
RAMers (members of the Racing Association of
Miami) prepare for the next heat, ignoring (true)
30-knot gusts and sand-stinging sprays.
Boasting 82 members, RAM is the largest
and (they claim) most competitive radio-control
(r/c) model boat club in the U.S. This monthly
meet was a bit hairier than usual, but still fairly
typical an event in the lives of thousands of gas-
power club members who choose to race,
competitively (about one out of five). R/C racers
often mirror all the passion and dedication of their
full-sized racing counterparts, devoting 30-plus
hours per week and "we stopped counting long
ago" dollars to constructing, maintaining and
constantly improving upon their pint-sized craft.
A far, and noisy, cry from electric-powered
toys, high-flying "glow-plug" boats are today's
racer's choice. They do run fast -- at least when
boat, wind and water are all in ideal alignment.
But as any modeler will tell you, nitromethane-
burning engines, particu-larly internal
installations, are a most persnickety power
'There are days when you spend six hours on
the boat and then drive it for ten seconds,"
comments former big-boat racer and freelance
mechanic, Brad Collins. Yet for Collins and those
like him, achieving speeds of over 60 mph --
complete with 15-foot roostertail -- in a mere five
seconds, is worth the effort. "I feel the same

anticipation and excitement as I did in the big
boats," he says, "and once you drive on the
water, it's the same -- you need to feel your way
from the control box." Collins claims structural
problems on models and big boats are similar as
well, adding he prefers working on models
because "it's more relaxing."
Of course racing by remote control is also a
hell of a lot safer, but even models -- gas boats in
particular -- need to be handled with respect.
There are generally a few bandaged hands on the
sidelines, in addition to bruised hulls. With new
Unlimiteds measuring up to 50 inches and
reaching speeds of 100 mph, you're looking at
significant projectile potential. Aeromarine
Laminates' model catalogue prints a clear
warning to show-offs: "Never try to 'catch' a
boat coming in; we've seen some severely
lacerated hands. Do not underestimate that sharp
metal prop spinning at 5,000 to 20,000 rpms."
Although close to 50 percent of model racers
own full-sized pleasure boats, you don't have to
have raced boats or be Mr. Macho (though one
can't help but note a preponderance of men and
adolescent boys out there on the lakes) to have
fun with r/c. You don't even have to be male.
Indiana r/c racer Sue Bathauer climbed the ranks
to become executive secretary of the International
Model Powerboat Association (IMPBA), the
world's first and largest umbrella organization for
r/c model clubs. Bathauer claims once women
move up from support positions in the pits, and
once they stop being afraid of hurting the next
guy, they make for unusually fierce, clear-
But winning isn't everything. Half, if not
more, of an r/c racer's pleasure is derived from
the assembly of his model. If purchased ready-to-

run, that pleasure is translated into constant
maintenance and care of what is often an
incredibly accurate replica of big-time racing
boats, complete with minute rudders, bolts and
props, engine davits and, sometimes, even hand-
painted passengers. (An artist friend of Collins
contributed a Burt Reynolds look-alike for his
International Hobbies, which claims to be
"the world's biggest" scale r/c powerboat
manufacturer, offers 15 exact 1/8-scale replicas
of raceboats designed from original
manufacturer's blueprints. Aeromarine
Laminates, "the world's biggest" race boat
supplier, features 35 semi-scale powerboat
models. Model Racing Products (MRP), which
produces both gas and electric models, claims to
be "the biggest outboard manufacturer in the

That's an awful lot of models for what was,
at last year's count, barely 6,000 international r/c
boat club members, based primarily in the U.S.
and Canada. And don't forget that figure includes
creative diehards who continue to build their
entries from scratch. Club members make
extremely dedicated consumers, however.
There's a much-envied member of RAM who
spends upwards of $10,000 a year on his
collection. (Advanced glow-plug models run

Note: Obviously our area, where you can
practically find a lake in everyone's back yard, is
especially popular with model racers, if not with
lakeside residents. Some, but no all,
neighborhood organizations have'invoke anti-
model-noise sanctions in private lake sectors. If
you want to avoid trouble, pay a weekend visit to
your local park. If you find a group of r/c
modelers huddled about the lake, chances are it's
OK to join in the fun. Best bet, of course, is to
sign up with a neighborhood club which
maintains a practice and racing arena, not to
mention that very-handy model retrieval boat.

In South Florida artificial reefs have been a
bounty to fishermen and divers. The Broward
artificial-reef program has been one of the most
successful in Florida.
An artificial reef is a shoal area which has
been constructed for the purpose of giving
additional hard-surface irregular topography.
This provides surfaces for attachment of marine
growth and in turn serves as a feeding area and
habitat for fish. Hard material such as concrete
platforms, old steel ships, tires locked together,
barges etc. are sunk in shelf waters a few miles
Chart Number 1 (Nautical Chart Symbols and
Abbreviations) published by DMA and NOS
consider sunken wrecks or obstructions
dangerous to surface navigation if there is less
than 11 fathoms (66 feet) of water over the wreck
so reef material is sunk in water deeper than 11
fathoms. The chart symbol for a wreck that is
covered with less than this is:
Permission to drop these reef items in the
water must be obtained from those controlling the
waters such as the Army Engineers. Artificial
reefs cannot be built in U.S. without official
permission from the Navy, because they can
shelter submarines from sonar detection.
The first artificial reef was constructed in
1935 at Cdpe May, New Jersey. In 1936 a
second reef was built by the Reading Railroad off
the resort community of Atlantic City. This was
strictly a business venture; after it was established
the railroad advertised a "fisherman's excursion"
for $1.50 which included a round-trip ticket from
New York and a full day of fishing, including
boat and bait
Do artificial reefs increase fish production?
Not necessarily. Most reefs have been built for
sport fishermen rather than for commercial
fishermen. Fish catches have increased
dramatically for a few years and then have
sometimes decreased, possibly because of
chemical changes in the water brought about by

Can divers using no supplemental breathing
equipment reach the artificial reefs off Ft.
Lauderdale? In 1967 R. A. Croft established a
world's record for a "breath holding dive"
reaching a depth of 217 feet off Fort Lauderdale.
The world record for deep diving on compressed
air was set in 1968 again off Ft. Lauderdale by
Hal Watts. He reached a depth of 390 feet, well
beyond the depths of the artificial reefs that range
from 70 to 240 feet, averaging 150 feet off the
beaches of Ft Lauderdale.
Navigation to these reefs is best done by
using a loran receiver's waypoints. These
waypoints are published in boating magazines..
Better still, when a reef is found punch the
memory or hold button on the set to obtain an
exact position of the reef. Store this as a
permanent waypoint. The loran set will enable
you to return to this reef within 50 feet of its
