Recently, the Fort Lauderdale Waterfront
Property Owners Association has been very
active in an effort to defeat the modification of
part of our present zoning code. A proposed new
ordinance is now before the Fort Lauderdale city
commission covering the issue of non-occupant
dock usage in R-l and R-1A zoning districts.
[See "Commissioner Naugle proposes 'R-l' dock
rental ad ban," page 6, June 1989, Waterfront
We feel that present ordinances are ineffective
because they focus on WHO uses the docks
instead of HOW the docks are used. Our
approach would focus on the abuses which may
arise not only from' non-occupant use of the
docks, but on owner abuses as well.
Enforcement against nuisances arising from the
use of private docks would be better directed,
speedier and more effective, but would still allow
non -owners or non-occupants to avail
themselves of dock spaces at private homes.
'. Regulations against the following would be
enforced to protect other residents:
1. No deteriorated, unsightly boats at docks;
2. No water pollution from any source;
3. Noexcessive noise;
4. No trash; .' -
5. No improper moorng; .
B~ No blocking of driveways or streets by service
vehicles orboat guests;
7. No live-aboards (handled under other
Violations of the above to be assessed either
against the homeowner or the boat as is dictated
by the circumstances. A permitting proposal is
-also under construction.
At the city commission conference meeting of
July 6, 1989, it was the suggestion of city
attorney Dennis Lyles, that the proposed
ordinance go to a "first reading," either in late
September or early October, date to be
announced. This 10 a.m. commission meeting,
when it is held, will be a public hearing.
It is vital that every person who has an interest
in using his dock understand that if he does not
now stand up and be counted, he will be
discriminated against by default.' Your city
commission cannot know what is in your mind
..and act on.your behalf unless you show your
support for those who represent your beliefs.
Never before have so many groups of people,
private citizens and businesses alike, united to
support dock usage throughout the city. Your
commission truly wishes to represent the desires
of the people of Fort Lauderdale, but you must
realize that if your civic association has gone on
record and stated that the majority of the
homeowners in your association are opposed to
dock rental, the commissioners will accept this as
the truth if you do not dispute it. Silence implies

Mooring buoys for divers
The, Ocean Watch Foundation is currently ,-
seeking donations to finance the installation of -
permanent mooring buoys in Broward County
coastal waters. This mooring system allows
boaters to tie off to permanent buoys, rather than
anchoring into the coral reefs. [See "Mooring
buoys for divers off Broward," by Bryan
Brooks, page 10, August 1989, Waterfront
We are greatly concerned with the anchor
damage occurring almost daily to our offshore
coral reef communities, through the impact of
anchors and chains on the living organisms.,
In Broward County waters, corals have a
very slow growth rate of about 1/15 inch per year
for hard corals and less than one inch every year
for soft corals. If an anchor knocks over a 20-
inch sea fan, then you are looking at the loss of a

No port pilots
Your Augustedition of the Waterfront News
carried an article:entitled "Port Pilots" by James
E. Sullivan. [See "Port Pilots," page 16, August
1989, Waterfront News .] Part of this article
referred to specifications of vessels requiring the
guidance and assistance of a Port pilot This went
on further to state that the sailboats participating
in the forthcoming Whitbread Round the World
Race might "seem" to require the assistance of a
Port pilot because their draft will exceed seven
Feet :. '
I attempted to correspond wittrMr. Sullivan
when I received a pamphlet through the mail
stating much the same information as contained in
this article. I received no reply.
I did call the office of the Port Everglades
Pilot's Association and received a very prompt
and courteous response to my question about
these possible requirements. Basically, the Pilots
will respond to any vessel which needs assistance
and guidance. The reference to vessels drawing
seven feet of water or more, is applicable to large
displacement crafts. Sailboats with keels that
draw more than seven feet are in and out of the
Port on a' regular basis and do not require a Pilot.
Your continued wonderful support and
coverage of the Whitbread Race has been a
tremendous help in acquainting everyone with
this important event I believe that you and I have
agreed that the full impact, economic and
otherwise, will not be realized until the Race is
upon us. It is going to take a lot of dedicated
people to make this thing a true success, but

Ask Big Al
I have a 28-foot boat with a single six-
cylinder diesel engine It has a real problem. The
motor starts and idles fine, but when I go out
with it the rpms drop down to about 1500 and
that is it. At the dock she will rev up fine, but
when I'm under power, no go! I've changed
filters and bled the lines. There is no air or leaks.
A diesel man pulled the injectors and had them all
checked and repaired. Now he tells me it may be
the pump. Before I go for another bundle, what
else could it be?
A diesel engine runs on fuel and air. A
restriction of either of these will cause a drop in
rpms. If you are getting plenty of air through the
vents and the air cleaner is not clogged you have
a fuel flow problem. Your lines to your fuel tank
must be clean and not kinked or sucking air. The
tube going down to the tank bottom must be
removed as some of them have a screen that gets
stuffed with debris or dirt and must be cleaned or
blown out. Once your fuel can get to the pump, I
think your problem will be solved.

My boat does not throw much water out of
the exhaust at the rear of the boat. I've been under
the boat and the inlet is clear. The impeller is new
and the belts are tight. The pump is throwing
plenty of water from the outlet. What else is there
to look for?
So far so good. Now, I would remove the
water line to the heat riser or the plug if you
haven't a line and rod out the rust in the nipple so
that the water flows through freely. Make sure
that the hoses are not full of rust or collapsed.
New hoses are usually the best thing. I would
then check my thermostat to see that it opens and
is not rusted shut or defective. Flush the system
and I think your water will flow out the exhaust.
I have a boat that starts and runs fine for
awhile at high speed. When I idle down, she
lopes and rolls and I have to advance the throttle
to keep her running. When I shut down, she
won't restart for about 15 minutes to a half-hour.
Then she'll run fine and it acts up all over again.
What you have is carburetor trouble. Either
the carburetor has dirt under the needle valve or
the float is defective. Thecarburetor is flooding
and wetting the plugs, causing misfires. When
the boat stands for awhile the gas dries up on the
plugs and you can run until the gas overflows or
leaks into the manifold, again, stalling the engine.
Overhauling the carburetor and installing new
fuel filters will correct this. Check your tanks for
sediment or water to prevent this from happening
in the future.
I've got a twin engine boat with diesel Cat's
in it. My oil pressure gauges always read
extremely high pressure. I've had auxiliary
gauges installed in the engine compartment and
they read about 85 psi. What can the problem be
with my other gauges?
High readings on gauges are almost always
caused by bad grounds. If all the gauges read
high, check the panel to see if that is grounded
properly. Also, the sending units must be
checked for rust or grounds or if they were
replaced with compatible units and gauges. They
must match to work correctly. A frayed or
rounded lead will also cause this.

That equates to a proposed 7 to 10 mph speed

Captain Richard held a series of public

The Discovery Center was awarded a grant
for $75,000 from the Institute of Museum
Services (IMS), as one of the recipients of their
1989 General Operating Support Awards.
The Discovery Center was one of only 15
science and technology centers nationwide and
one of only 10 museums in Florida to receive this
award. Museums from all over the country
applied for the IMS Award grants, which are
designed to assist museums with the cost of basic
services and operations.
The grants are awarded on a stiff competitive
basis, to those museums which provide superior
services to the public. ,
"We are gratified that we could compete
successfully on a. national level for this
prestigious grant award," says Discovery Center
executive director Kim Maher.
First established in 1976, IMS is the primary
federal agency responsible for supporting the
basic operations of all types of museums.

Trans-atlantic speed record set
The Blue Ribald (emblem of speed supremacy
on the Atlantic Ocean) has been brought back to .i,- y
the United States. Tom Gentry, two-time
offshore world racing champion, set the record
for a trans-Atlantic powerboat crossing. '
The 110-foot Gentry Eagle reached
England's Bishop Rock July 26th, 62 hours and
7 minutes after starting from New York, 3,437
miles to the southeast. Averaging 55.61 mph,
Gentry bettered Richard Branson's 1986 mark by
over 18 hours, despite taking a longer course to
avoid icebergs and fog off the Canadian
Maritimes. Before Branson, the Blue Ribald was
held for 34 years by the S.S. United States, a
passenger liner who set it on her maiden trans
Tom Gentry and a crew of five made a run at
the record crossing last year, but, were forced
back when a nasty storm reversed its course and
buffeted the boat with 15- to 20-foot seas. An
Italian effort suffered the same fate at the same
This year's trip was less eventful, though 0 .
Gentry had to stop early in the race after ingesting
plastic into Eagle's jet intakes. Later the
speedboat, powered by twin turbo-charged
diesels and a single marine turbine, sustained a
broken fuel line. Near the finish the main fuel
pump failed. Repairs were made at sea by on-
board mechanic Eckhard Rastig.
Other crew members included Gentry's son Tom Gentry's 120-foot Gentry Eagle.

Breaking records: the history of the 'Blue Riband'
by Bob Black
Courage, skill and a passion for adventure
have powered those who have sought to set new
speed records across the North Atlantic for 150
years. Gales, whales, fog, fatigue, and hundreds
of other ocean-bound opponents have fought
them. Trial, temptation, tragedy and triumph have
all visited, leaving them battered or bouyant in
For the 80 crews who have won the Blue
Riband by breaking the transatlantic sea crossing
records set by their predecessors -and for
uncountable ones who tried and failed- that 150-
year-old challenge has always been the same.
Only the technology has changed..
In 1838, Great Western was the fastest boat
on the sea. She was 236 feet long, made of
wood, powered by steam, and one of the first
two steamship services in England. The Blue
Riband went to her crew after they beat the
Serius, their commercial competitor, in a race
across the ocean that took just over 15 days to
finish at a wind-whistling average speed of 8.74
The award changed hands two years after
Great Western got it when a brand new Cunard
steamship took it away. The Britannia crossed in
12 days. It took more than 10 years until 1851
- for Cunard's victorious crew to be dethroned,
and then it was by an American crew,
underwritten by the U.S. government
The U.S. steamship was named Pacific. It
was owned by Edward Collins, whose fleet was
subsidized by the U.S. government to compete
with Cunard's cross-sea delivery fleet. She
bested Brittania by two knots and a day.
It was a tough year for the Brits 1851 was
the year the schooner yacht America beat a
British fleet in a race around the Isle of Wight and
won what is now "The America's Cup."
The Pacific lost the Blue Riband to another
American steamer in 1852. The Baltic may have
been the second American ship to earn the
famous prize, but she was the first ever to break
through the 10-knot'speed line by crossing the
Atlantic in nine days and 13 hours, at an average
speed of 13.34 knots.'
America held the record for four more years,
eventually giving it up to the British, who took
great pains to keep the Blue Riband for as long as
Tom Gentry (right) holding the $60,000 solid silver
besting Richard Branson's old record time.
they could. The honors went from one
Englishman to another 18 times within the next
Glory and tragedy
The glories of those early international
competitions were dimmed by heaping shares of
tragedy. Collins' now famous steamship line
was struck three times between 1854 and 1858.
The Atlantic was lost in 1854, as were the lives
of Collins' wife and two children, who were
passengers the night it hit the French steamer
Vesta in a fog just off Cape Race. The Pacific
disappeared in 1856, in an ice field near
Almost 30 years later, the crews of the
Atlantic and the Pacific were practically sea
legend and the nine-day, 13-knot record that
brought the Blue Riband back to England must
have seemed as ancient as paddleboats, when

Transatlantic Challenge Trophy after
England's Luciana cut the transatlantic speed
record almost in half. She crossed the ocean-in
just over 5 days, her two new 1895-model "twin
screw" steam engines delivering 22 knots.
The competition really heated up three years
later, when the German liner Kaiser Wilhelm der
Grosse swept the Blue Riband from the British,
who grabbed it back in 1907 and broke the five-
day record by over 12 hours. England's T. S.
Lusitania set more than speed records that year:
she was the first of the "floating palaces" to win
the Blue Riband. Powered by the new steam
turbine engines she carried 2,000 passengers.
The Blue Riband went from Germany to Italy
to France before England's Queen Mary took it
back in 1936. She broke the four-day record in
1938 and lost it to America in 1952 when the
United States crossed in 3 days, 10 hours and 40

Lady sailors to race
by Craig Lwgarten
t's going to be an an female hands on deck
event, as lady sailors from two local clubs will
compete on a two-hour course at the Hillsbom
Inlet Sailing Club's 1989 Ladies' Day Race on
Sunday, September 10.-
Last year, 13 boats from the Hillsboro Inlet
Sailing Club (HISC) participated in the ladies'
event, and this year members of the Gulfstream
Sailing Club (GSC) have been invited to enter the
Peter Anderson, HISC commodore, related
that the women will be racing a course off
Hillsboro Beach which has been designed using
the system of buoys that has been placed in that
area of the ocean. The course will also be
structured so that at least one leg of it will have
the boats going against the wind.
The 36th annual Columbus Day Cruising
Regatta will be held Saturday and Sunday,
October 7 and 8, 1989 on Miami's Biscayne Bay.
The entry fee for this event, one of the largest
regattas in the entire USA, is $35 per boat
through September 23. From then until
September 30, the absolute deadline, the fee is
$55. This year's fee includes a donation to the
National Park Service. Entry forms, contained
within Columbus Day programs, are available at
most marine stores, marinas and sailmakers in
Dade. Broward and South Palm Beach Counties.
The Columbus Day Regatta is a family event,
fun for yachtsmen of all ages. The fleet is limited
to 650 boats in 21 different classes from 18-
footers to America's Cup-sized boats including
pleasure/cruising yachts, so get your entry in,
now. In addition to the racing boats, more than
2500 spectator boats are expected to gather to
enjoy this colorful event.
The Columbus Day Committee is a non-profit
group which raises money by selling T-shirts and
program ads to keep the entry fee low. Monies
collected go toward trophies, flags, medallions,
printing, the donation to the National Park
Service and Race Committee operating expenses.
There is no entrance fee for the race and the
skipper of each crew must be a HISC or GSC
member. A tumout of about 16 boats is expected,
having crews of 3-5 women per boat. One male
observer is allowed on board in case of
To compensate for the fact that different types
of sailboats will be competing in the same event,
an offshore sailboats 23 to 43 feet in length will
be assigned a handicap, so that the slower boats
will be given a fair chance to win the race. The
winner of the race will be the fastest boat on
corrected time to cross the finish line.

the interest, there may be two classes of boats
designated for the race an experienced and a

Joyce Fitzgerald, who will be sailing the
Leprechaun III in this year's race, commented, "I
have a cruising boat so rm not looking to win
any trophies only to participate and have fun. I
hope we have a lot of wind out there this year."
Commodore Anderson added that the unique
thing about this event is that the women really get
gung ho about it and dress up in crazy crew T-
shirts and rowdy hats. There are usually a couple
of spectator boats consisting of men dressed as
women to provide some comic relief during the
After the race, all boats will rendezvous for
the post-race party hosted by the HISC men from
4 to 7 p.m. The bash will take place at

people are expected to attend. Featured at this

70 years of music on the river
V & *. ~pL-I- .
by Steve Boone & Susan B. Peterson
One summer afternoon we were sitting at a
bar on the New River, contemplating the river
and the Andrews bridge. It was Happy Hour.
We were discussing 1919, the year that D.
W. Griffith came to FL Lauderdale with his
movie troupe to make "The Idol Dancer," starring
Richard Barthelmess and Clarine Seymour.
Griffith picked Ft Lauderdale as the ideal setting
to portray the South Sea Isles, since the
undeveloped New River and beach were marvels
of natural beauty at the time, and local residents,
including many Seminoles, were available to
round out the cast.
D. W. Griffith's entourage stayed at the
brand new Broward Hotel (now Bubier Park)
which was across the river from what is now
Nathaniel's New River Tavem. Griffith was the
first guest to sign the hotel register, and after
filming was completed, he threw a party for the
cast and 200 select local guests, bringing in a jazz
band from Palm Beach for entertainment Sleepy,
little Ft. Lauderdale would never be the same.
Shortly after that, the twenties land boom
began, and tent cities sprang up along the river to
accommodate the new influx of visitors and land
speculators. One tourist camp was on the lot
where Nathaniels is now.
The Maxwell Arcade was built on that site,
and became famous in the mid-twenties for its
huge electric sign, "the largest one south of
Washington, D.C." The sign blew down in the
1926 hurricane, but the Maxwell Arcade
remained, and the building remains as a channing
"Mediterranean village," where we can go to
watch river traffic from the bar and daydream
about the twenties.
After the 1926 hurricane, the Ft Lauderdale
Jaycees wanted to stage an event that would bring
out a lot of people and turn around some of the
bad luck the city had been having. The Jaycees
and their best swimmer, August Burghard,
decided to have a New River Marathon Swim on
Labor Day, 1927. And they did.
The race started from the east side of the
Andrews Avenue bridge. Thousands of cheering
spectators crowded both banks of New River.
The swimmers raced toward the ocean inlet, a
three- and-a-half mile distance. Alice Shaw, of
Davie, won the women's division. Her trophy
from the 1927 race is on display at the Swimming
Hall of Fame.
Sixty-two years later, the Jaycees are
sponsoring the New River Raft Race. The
skipper's meeting will be at Nathaniel's. Same
location, different year, new bridge, good old
Along the way it has provided space for a
number of businesses.
Al Starts, who built and owned the first
Jungle Queen, had a workshop in the building
where he designed 20 horsepower drone engines
for the military during World War IL
There was a place called Alexander's Ragtime
Bar, which had a stage for shows. It
encompassed all of Nathaniel's as well as New
River Studios next door to the bar. Virginia
Cayia, manger of New River Studios, told us that
when she opened in 1982, all the storefronts in
the courtyard were painted different colors, one
red, one blue, one green, and the comer store
under the bridge was a hairdresser's.
After that there was an Italian restaurant
called Giancarlo's, but when the Andrews
Avenue Bridge was renovated and expanded,
Giancarlo's closed, and newspaper accounts
described the closing event, which included a
funeral procession to honor its demise.
At this point in our discussion of the old
days, Robin, our bartender, came over to serve
us another round of drinks, and we came out of
our historical reverie, and noticed a huge reel of

It belonged to Greg Hudik. He told us he
was a singer/songwriter and had just finished
remixing his new song, "The Easier It Comes,
The Faster It Goes," at the recording studios next
door. We played the cassette of the song on Nat's
tape player and liked it a lot! Good luck, Greg!
The next evening, a Friday, we came back to
Nathaniel's for the opening of Riverwalk Jazz,
featuring local jazz artists and produced by Nick
Funk and Rene' Gordon in cooperation with Nat
Dorman, the "real Nathaniel."
We were greeted at the door by "Rita
Riverwalk," a formally-dressed mannequin on
loan from Nathaniel. There were also charming
live hostesses and friendly music lovers of all
ages. The Paul Ayick Quartet was playing that
night. Mike Bocchicchio on bass was
outstanding. Many professional musicians were
in the audience. Joe Petrera sat in on drums for
awhile and Lyn D'Andrea guested on vocals.

twinkles of light on the tables, the dancers, and

That Sunday afternoon, and the week after,
we came back to Riverwalk Jazz at Nathaniel's
for the Sunday jam session.
Performers we especially enjoyed included
the very talented Ron Perillo on piano, "Big Joe"
Petrera on drums, vocalist Lynne Meryl, who
sings with the David Wertman Ensemble, and
vocalist Mary Washington, who thrilled us with
her voice and stage presence.
We want to hear more, and we will come
back. The interaction between the audience and
the performers was very warm and enthusiastic.
The hospitality was excellent, and a full menu of
Nathaniel's specialties is available at Riverwalk
Nat's comment about the opening weekend:
"It went terrific. The jazz community came out in
full force to support a new jazz club."
This seemed like an accurate assessment to
But often, with a reverie, there is a refrain.
When we completed our tour of the building
with a visit to New River Studios, Virginia
showed us through the different areas where
recording artists work on their music -
performers like the Everly Brothers, Nestor
Torres, Gloria Estefan, and our own recent
"discovery," Greg Hudik.
We were charmed by the tour and sorry to
hear Virginia say, "At this point, when the jazz
club is operational, we are unable to record in our
studio because of the sensitivity of the
microphones it bleeds through the wall. We
were told that a wall will be built between that

licenses. They either service your liferaft with no training, authorization, or access to correct parts,
or ship it 200 miles away where they have no control over scheduling and you cannot see the raft

announced a date change for their fall tournament
which has traditionally been held on the last

voted to hold their tournament one week later on
Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 3, 4
and 5, 1989. The kick-off party and registration
will be held Thursday evening, November 2nd.

The Galleon Marina, Key West, has
announced that it will award $5000 to the top
overall boat in the Fish Roundup scheduled for
September 22 and 23.
Anglers will fish for seven species of
fish-dolphin, wahoo, tuna, king mackerel, white
and blue marlin and sailfish.
The Fish Roundup encourages billfish
releases and will award a special trophy to the
boat releasing the most billfish. Additionally, the
Fish Roundup has designated that the size of
billfish allowed to be weighed in will be longer
than the Federal limit. Blue marlin must measure
90 inches and white marlin and sailfish must be
70 inches each. All fish will count for one point
per pound with a ten-pound weight limit on non-

New bills proposed to protect the environment
by Bryan Brooks
There are bills in the state Legislature that
could, if made into law, impact the diving
industry in Florida. The proposed new bills
include regulations involving the divers-down
flag, artifact and historical objects and a bill on
the power heads which involve spearfishermen.
Another new bill on licenses would affect
spearfishermen and collectors of starfish, sea
urchins, sea cucumbers, and some live shell
*HB 722 (Dive Flag Changes). The bill
defines the terms of diving and rescue craft which
will be required to display the di,-:rs-down flag.
This bill also limits the speed with which a boat
should be operated in the vicinity of divers
displaying the flag. The bill, designed to go into
effect on October 1, 1990, increases the size of
the divers-down flag from 12 by 12 inches to 24
by 24 inches.
The bill states that divers should make every
effort to stay within 100' of the flag when diving
in rivers, inlets and navigation channels. In other
waters the requirement states that divers should
stay within 150' of the flag. There is, however,
NO PENALTIES for boaters who ignore the law
and the minimum speed requirements around the
divers-dovw flag. The Florida Marine Patrol
stated that they can only arrest a boater when
THEY see the violation. Then because of the lack
of any teeth in the law, they arrest under the
Careless Operation of a Boat statutes.
*HB 718 (Artifact Changes). This bill
provides a mandatory $1000 civil assessment for
each specimen, artifact, or other historical or
archeological object within state-owned or state-
controlled land. Editorial comment from Florida
SCUBA News stated that this bill is so broad that
it would eliminate artifact diving in any state
waters without a permit. FSN mentioned that
under this law, any divers who stumbled onto
artifacts, such as an Indian arrowhead, could be
assessed $1000 for each arrowhead.
*HB 1359 (Powerhead Bill). This bill
would not only prohibit such explosive devices,
which is already against the law, but would make
possession of such weapons and even headless
fish, a prima facie violation itself. This of course
would only be a violation in state waters. There is
no law regulating these weapons in federal

Licenses). This bill would expand the law
already on the books, and make it against the law
to spear Echinodermata, which includes sea
urchins, sea cucumbers and starfish This new bill
would do away with the 10-day non-resident salt
water fishing license.
With the increasing urbanization of Florida
comes new problems. The new divers coming
here are impacting the fish, the coral they swim or
crawl over and the very water itself.
Dive shop owner Matt Stout feels that new
laws might have to be enacted to protect the
environment. However, Stout feels the larger
problem, such as disappearing fish and lobster
stocks, are mainly the result of the commercial
fishermen, with the millions of fish and lobster
they take each year.
The large and powerful state commercial
fishing lobby makes any restrictions against them
hard to come by.
Stout did agree that effects on the coral by the
larger amount of divers that dive the reefs and
wrecks off Ft. Lauderdale are a real threat to the
reefs, with their fragile coral animals. This
problem, he feels, has to change with increased
.Stout thinks basic, entry level dive courses
have to spend more time on the divers

responsibilities to the environment while diving.
The diving industry itself will have to face up to
their responsibilities along this line, he concluded.
Many knowledgeable people in the. diving
world feel, as more and more divers are certified
and start to impact the environment, if they are not
trained properly, the government might step in
and do it for them. This is a real fear of the diving
industry and a possibility they would like to
avoid. More rules and laws make for more
bureaucracy, is the consensus of the diving
Florida Marine Patrol Ca'ptain, Mike
Lamphear, stated that he and his people were just
learning the new laws that have recently been
enacted. Lamphear stated any new bills that may
happen will be faced when and if they become
law. He feels his men and women will
professionally enforce whatever new laws are put
onto the books.
Lamphear did feel positive in one respect,
however, he stated, in the recent two-day lobster
mini season, he could see some positive results.
He felt that, by and large, most divers were trying
to obey the law. If this is true, perhaps, the diver
education is getting better. Morality and concern
for the environment is a different matter
Dr. Richard Dodge, a marine geologist from
the Nova University Graduate School of
Oceanography, felt that the impact of more and
more divers will affect the reef to some degree.
He said, boaters that drop anchors are definitely a
problem. Divers that touch or brush against coral,
and divers that lift up coral heads in search of
lobsters, will cause some damage. Dr. Dodge felt
however, that the damage isn't to such an extent
that boaters and divers couldn't co-exist with the

owners asked to
help fight crime
The Pompano Beach Marine Advisory Board
acting on a recommendation from the Pompano
Police Marine Patrol is asking homeowners to
assist them in combating crime.
According to police, when a burglary or
prowler call is received on waterfront property,
the marine patrol (in addition to road patrol)
attempts to respond by water. Although street
numbers are clearly marked, individual homes are
not required to list their address on the water,
many times hindering the Marine Patrol's efforts.
If homes were clearly marked on the water,
say police, identification of the property could be
made quickly. This, hopefully, could result in
apprehension of the suspect
Homeowners wishing to help police protect
their property may do so by showing their street
address in an obvious location behind their
homes. Letters should contrast their background
i.e. white against black and be no smaller than
three inches in height and no greater than ten
inches in height.

Sometimes a look at history is the best
indicator of what is yet to come. The marine
related fatality statistics are no exception. In the
past 10 years boat related fatalities have dropped
approximately 33 percent. It's hard to believe that
in 1971 when the Federal Boat Safety Act was
enacted, the fatality rate was 20.2 deaths per
100,000 registered boats. This past year, that rate
plummeted to 5.5 deaths per 100,000.
According to the latest Coast Guard accident
statistics for 1988, there were 946 boating
fatalities in 1988, compared to the 1,036 in 1987.
Other good news includes a drop in the overall
number of boating accidents from 6,746 in 1987
to 6,718 in 1988.
A steady flow of funds for state boating
safety education and law enforcement, amounting
to over $150 million in the past decade from the
Boating Trust Fund, is credited with fostering a
steady decline in the boating fatality rate.
The Coast Guard has attributed the decline in
fatalities to the increased awareness of the
dangers of boating while intoxicated.
The statistics are more meaningful when
contrasted with boating's growth: in the 28 years
the Coast Guard has been tracking themefatalities
dipped under the one-thousand mark for the first
time in 1988. In the same period, the number of
recreational boats in use mushroomed from 5.8 to

Limited use of life
stymies safety efforts
by Arlene Sloan
CHICAGO -Twenty years of record
keeping have marked tremendous strides in the
area of boating safety. But one aspect of the
record that has not improved is the number of
boating fatalities attributable to drownings.
According to Coast Guard estimates, 80 percent
of all boating fatalities each year result from
drownings and most of these involve victims
who were not wearing life jackets. Consumers
shouldn't be confused by debate about the
effectiveness of life jackets,,or personal flotation
devices (PFDs). The real problem arises from
their lack of use. The numbers clearly show that
PFDs save lives. But like seat belts in cars, they
only work when they are worn.
The task of encouraging PFD-use among
boaters is helped along by federal laws requiring
all boats to be equipped with one Coast Guard-
approved PFD per passenger. But even while
spot checks and stepped-up enforcement efforts
are improving both awareness and compliance
with this standard safety requirement, many
boaters still choose not to wear flotation devices.
Most people simply do not believe anything will
happen to them. Others acknowledge the
possibility of a mishap, but opt to rely on their
swimming abilities in the event of an emergency.
In reality, capsizing or falling overboard the
most common scenario in boating fatalities -
often results in a head injury which renders an
otherwise capable swimmer unconscious. Cold
water is also a danger that can make efforts of
both good and inexperienced swimmers useless
within minutes. Another overlooked factor is that
foul weather gear, frequently worn by fishermen
and sailors, makes swimming nearly impossible.
Even the strongest of swimmers who suddenly
find themselves overboard without a PFD will be
quickly weighted down by water-filled boots and
rain gear, and will find merely staying afloat a
PFD manufacturers have recognized that
enhanced wearability is the key to getting more-
people to use PFDs the best designs are the.
ones that get worn. Makers of personal equipment

Special PFDs for fishermen and hunters provide
an extra benefit: in addition to buoyancy, they
sport numerous pockets for stowage of lures,
duck calls, etc.
With the wide selection of PFDs available,
choosing the right model also becomes an
essential factor in how much flotation devices will
be worn. To help consumers with selection,
PFDs are rated according to their buoyancy and
4 effectiveness in different bodies of water under
various weather conditions. The Coast Guard
recently adopted new names that better describe
the intended uses and limitations of PFDs,
replacing the earlier designation of Types I
through V. Under this system, descriptions
listing advantages, disadvantages and available
sizes are affixed to each life jacket sold after
Off-Shore Life Jacket (Type I) Best for
open, rough, or remote waters where rescue may
be delayed. Performs the best and will turn an
unconscious person face-up, but can be bulky.
Near-Shore Life Vest (Type II) Best suited
for general boating activities in calm, inland
waters where there is a good chance of fast
rescue. More comfortable and less expensive than
Type I, but will not necessarily float an
unconscious person face-up.
Flotation Aid (Type III) Best suited for
calm waters where there will be fast rescue.
Comfort, wearability and specialized designs for
various boating activities makes it the most
popular choice, but it will not necessarily float an
unconscious person face-up.
