Plans are set for the 36th annual Columbus
Day Cruising Regatta, one of the largest regattas
in the entire U.S.A. The 1989 event will take
place Saturday and Sunday, October 7 and 8, on
Miami's Biscayne Bay. Alternate dates, October
14 and 15, have been established in the event of a
hurricane or unbearable weather. Notice of
cancellation on race day, October 7, would be on
NOAA weather radio.
The entry fee for the Columbus Day Regatta
is $35 per boat through September 23. From then
until September 30, the entry fee is $55. The
absolute deadline for entries is 1900 hours (7
p.m.), Sunday, September 30. This year's fee
includes a donation to the National Park Service
in lieu of a fee. Entry forms, included in Regatta
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 Regatta has
grown so in popularity that for the-past 5 years,
it's been necessary to limit the fleet to 650 boats.
There are 21 different classes, from Americas
Cup-sized yachts' to 1-footers, including
In addition to the racing boats, more than
2500 spectator boats gather to enjoy this colorful
event. This year, boat tours to Elliott Key will be
run by Biscayne National Park Boat Tours on
their new 52' glass bottom boat. Trips are
currently planned for 9 a.m. to noon, 1 p.m. to 4
p.m. and 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, October
7. For information and reservations, call Captain
Ed at 305/247-2400.
On Saturday the race is from Miami, at
Coconut-Grove, south approximately 10 miles to
Elliott Key. Sunday's race is from Elliott Key
back to Miami.
The anchorage at Elliott Key will be about 3/4
of a mile wide and 4 miles long, starting at Boca
Chica Key, running parallel to Sands Key and
Elliott Key, ending at the entrance of National
Park Channel. There will be about a 3/4-mile
open area at Sands Cut dividing the anchorage
area into two parts.
This entire area will be an enforced "no
wake" zone. Once again, emphasis is placed on a
ban of high-speed water sports, i.e. jet skis or
water skiing. And, no flares are permitted. The
committee is strictly enforcing a no water balloon
policy for all vessels during the weekend. The
balloons pose a serious threat to sea turtles and
some dolphin. These rules will be enforced by 18
to 20 National Park Service and Florida Marine
Patrol boats. Violations would result in
disqualification of racing vessels and any future
race entry would be disallowed.
In addition to the Committee, there will be
two paramedics and a designated salvage vessel

The finish line will again be patrolled by the
Coast Guard and Coast Guard Auxiliary to keep
the flow of boats smooth. The channel across
Featherbed Banks will be limited to one way
traffic south on Saturday and one way north on
Sunday during peak race hours.
The Committee requests that all captains
familiarize themselves with the special racing
instructions contained in the program. Every
effort is being made to ensure the Columbus Day
Regatta is a safe and fun-filled weekend.
Trophy presentations will be held one week
after the Regatta at a festive party on Saturday,
October 14 at the Coral Reef Yacht Club (or
October 21 if the race is delayed).
The Columbus Day organization is a non-
profit group with the Regatta Committee
comprised of 5 members and their spouses. The
committee raises money by selling T-shirts and
program ads to keep the entry fee low. Monies
collected go toward trophies, flags, medallions,
printing, the National Park Service donation and
Race Committee operating expenses.

Several hundred waterfront residents packed
the Fort Lauderdale City Hall auditorium as the
city's Marine Advisory Board during their
September meeting considered a proposed
ordinance amendment before the City
Commission that would clarify and make more
enforceable city laws which currently outlaw the
rental of residential dockage.
After hearing the heated public testimony of
over 40 citizens from both sides of the issue and
reviewing the contradictory findings of two
Marine Advisory Board sub-committees, the
board voted 8-1 to recommend to the city
commissioners that they not approve this
amendment which would add teeth to the current
residential dock rental ban.
At press time the Fort Lauderdale City
Commission had not acted on this measure.
On November 5, a Dania-based yacht
broker plans to compete in the New York

for Broward County's Big Brothers/Big Sisters
This is not the first time the yacht broker has
helped the childrens'charity; Kleinman has been
one of the head organizers of the annual Big
Brothers/Big Sisters fishing tournament.
"With proper training, I'm sure I can finish
this once in a lifetime goal," predicted Kleinman,
who also competes in area triathlons. He is
asking for pledges of between 250 and $1.00 for
every mile he completes in the marathon. Call in

4 Waterfront News October 1989 Letters
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-1 and R-1A zoning districts.
[See "Commissioner Naugle proposes 'R-1' 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. No excessive noise;
4. No trash;
5. No improper mooring;
6. No blocking of driveways or streets by service
vehicles or boat guests;
7. No live-aboards (handled under other
Violations of the above to be assessed eitheirw
against the homeowner or the boat as is dictated
by the circumstances. A permitting proposal is
alsounder 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
supportfor 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

I have just bought a twin engine power
boat. After a few cosmetic repairs and a few
trips, I decided to change my oil and oil
filters. I ran the engines untii the oil was
warm and drained or sucked out all the old oil
and residue in the engines. To my dismay I
found I could not remove the oil filters. They
were like frozen to the base. The cap filter
tool just slipped around and the band tool I
had bought crushed the filters completely.
My buddy and I finally cut them off, installed
two new filters according to direction on
boxes and they don't leak and I check them
every time I check the oil. I'm leery of my
next oil change and filter change. Any
Overtightening the oil filter and/or error
changing them will cause them to freeze to
the filter base. Getting to the filters can be a
Also filters come in different sizes and a
large filter clamp will slip on a smaller filter. I
have four (4) different filter removers and I
also have a ratchet wrench with an angle head
so that I can reach those way down oil filters.
If a filter case is crushed and you can't grip
it, I drive a screwdriver through it and you
can spin them off. Cheap filters are thin
skinned and crush easily.
Always buy a good heavy duty filter. Put
oil or vaseline on the gasket before tightening
to facilitate removing them and prevent oil
leaks. Most likely your old filters were not
changed regularly and could have been
can be a horror. Why engine designers put
starters on boat engines so low that flooding
in the bilges ruin the starter I don't know.
Any removal of them and oil filters that
cannot be reached easily are major jobs.
On my trip down to the Keys I ran into a
water in my fuel problem. I finally got into
the mid Keys and after much effort'found a
marina who got most of my water problem
solved and I bought two new filters and
broke down again in Marathon. I finally
found a mechanic who really drained out my
bad fuel, bought new fuel and replaced my
filters again and reached Key West without
any fuel problems. My problem was getting
help without going nuts looking for a
mechanic. Is there a directory I can buy
- where I can find mechanical help?
Most marine stores have books listing
marinas and marine engine repairs up and
down the east & west coasts. You can always
walk into a marine supply store and they
know all the repair facilities that buy parts
from them locally. In Key West there is a
great store to visit. All kinds of parts and I'm
sure they can help boaters in distress. I don't
usually advertise in this column but this

Can I install a depth finder in my boat
without hauling and installing a transducer
through the hull? What options do I have?
I have a badstarter on my V-8 engine on
my boat. My problem is getting it out. I can
just about see the starter and the stringer and
motor support is up against it. I can see one
bolt on top but the other bolts are out of
sight. There is no clearance to slide the starter
out after the bolts are removed.
You really have a problem. You can get
the bolt size from the bolt on top and with a
long extension and a flex ratchet you can
remove the other bolts on the side and
bottom. Disconnect the battery when you

You sure can. There are many transducers
that can be affixed to the stern of the boat.
There are transducers that can be installed in
the hull which work very well. You can buy
a transducer bubble in a marine parts store
with all directions for internal installation.
Also there are suction cup installations for the
stern of your boat and mechanical hookups
for the exterior of your vessel. As with all
transducers they are usually not measuring
from the keel but from their installation point.

Ask Big Al
I have had fuel pump trouble for about a
month now. Replaced pumps twice and after
one or two trips pump cut out won't pump
fuel. Filters and lines are clean. What could I
do to solve this problem?
Yoi did not state what engine is in your
boat. Some engines have a riser or pushrod
activating your fuel pump and replacing this
rod (which may be worn) will give you full
action. If your cam is worn on your camshaft
you really have a problem. If you don't want
to go into major repairs, I've installed an
electric fuel pump which pumps the fuel to
and through the existing pump and solves
that fuel problem. Make sure all filters are
new or clean and also you get a marine fuel
I had an oil leak and my bilge is full of
old dirty oil. I don't want to pump this oil
into the ocean or canal but I do want to get rid
of it and clean my boat. Any suggestions?
I really commend you for your
thoughtfulness. You can s.uck up most of
your spill into a can or Clorox bottle with a
small suction pump. You can then use towels
to mop up and wipe out residue on bilge
bottom. Sprinkle Tide or Cheer into the bilge
and some water and slosh it around. The
natural rocking of the boat will dissolve and
break up the sludge. As you ride around you
can then suck out that liquid and your bilge
will dry out clean.
I would like to know a bit about engines
on my boat as I'm always scared about
breaking down while I am outside in the
ocean. Where can I get a course on engine
basics so that I don't feel so helpless.
I would advise taking a free course with
the Power Squadron or the Coast Guard
Auxiliary. Both give marine engine courses
and issue diplomas at course completion.
These courses of the Coast Guard also
include piloting, navigation, etc. You can get
a reduction on your insurance after passing a
boating course and you also will need this
diploma if you need a boating license.

Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show arrives early
Previously Fort Lauderdale in November was
the place where you would find anybody who
was somebody in the marine industry. This year,
that has changed to late October specifically
October 26-30, 1989 for the 30th edition of the
famous Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
at the Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center.
The International Show has grown into a
fixture for the marine industry. This year the
Show is celebrating its 30th anniversary and
promises to be bigger and better than ever. Over
800 boats of every design, shape and size
available will be on display, along with more than
Annually, the show is the first chance to view
all the latest 1990 models regardless of size. The
real draw is the enormous amount of boats'in-
water. The show has blossomed into what most
industry experts refer to as the LARGEST in-
water boat show in the world.
The five day extravaganza also serves host to
a collection of the world's most luxurious mega
yachts (yachts over 100'), part of the exclusive
Expect not only the finest mega yachts, but
powerboats, sport fishing boats, etc, from
around the world. The influence of foreign
manufacturers to both the industry here and
abroad has been tremendous. The International
Show has been the place where the industry
leaders can gather and establish the trends and
highlights for the coming year. Past years have
brought boat builders from across trhe world and
countries such as: Italy, Korea, Finland, Holland,
Sweden, Great Britain, Denmark, Australia, and
many, many more. The American manufacturers
are also represented quite well at the show.
Boats will be the base of the Show but by no
means is that all. The Show is laid out with a
large, air conditioned tent area with additional tent
areas throughout the Show. The large tent
contains an impressive array of every nautical
accessory imaginable. It could be your one stop
shopping place forieverything from clothes, hats,
jewelry, artwork, shoes and much more. The
other tents are specifically designed for other
marine-related products electronics, engine
manufacturers, and other boat accessories.
If that is not enough, entertainment and
nautical activities abound throughout the Show.
Annual events include fishing clinics, fashion
shows with the latest swimwear by local
designers, and other informative seminars. The
picture is complete with a wide variety of
concessions to make the perfect family outing.
The International Show has one final
attraction that separates it from any show of its
kind the Large floating Cocktail Barge. The
Cocktail Barge is actually floating on the water
hooked to the Bahia Mar by specially installed

A boat show
is big bucks
by M. G. Swift
Last year, the Ft. Lauderdale International
Boat Show brought in an estimated $70,000,000
to Broward County, according to an economic
impact study recently released by the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida (MIA-
In 1988 the five-day boat show at Bahia Mar
had over 700 exhibitors and 1,150 boats on
display both in and out of the water. A total of
64,528 tickets were sold to the show. Of these,
27,376 were exhibitor tickets and 37,152 were
for general admission. Discounting no-shows and
multiple day visitors, "It is conservatively
estimated that nearly 54,000 people actually
attended the five-day show," concluded the study
done by Kenneth Leventhal & Company, an
accounting firm hired by the MIA-SF.
Miami Boat Show
MIAMI More design changes and new
features than ever will be seen in 1990
models of most pleasure boats which will be
unveiled for the public in the third annual
Miami Fall Boat Show scheduled Friday
through Tuesday, October 13-17, at the
Miami Beach Convention Center.
In cooperation with Big Brothers/Big
Sisters of Dade County, which receives a
portion of the proceeds, discount tickets
valued at $2 each can be obtained from Shell
gas stations in Dade and Broward counties.
Discount tickets, $2 off the-$6 adult
admission, also may be obtained at
McDonald's restaurants in Dade-and
The third annual Miami Fall Boat Show
opens at 7 p.m. on Friday, October 13.
Weekend hours are from 11 to 11 on
Saturday and from 11 to 9:30 on Sunday.
Hours are 6 to 11 on the final two days,
Monday and Tuesday.
Leventhal figured that over 51percent of the
boat show's visitors (27,456) come from outside
Broward County. The typical visitor to a
consumer show stayed an average 3.8 days
spending about $135 per day ($44 for one-day
stands). Visitors spent an estimated $3,139,000
in Ft. Lauderdale.
"Exhibitors also inject a significant amount of
economic impact into the local market," said the
study. "Their expenditures are some 25 percent
higher than the ordinary visitor to the show."
Each of the 700 exhibitors brought an average of
eight individuals staying a mean five days. Over
60 percent of the exhibitors came from outside
Broward County pumping another $3 million into
the local economy.
The 1988 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat
Show generated approximately $126 million in
product sales. Around 38 percent of those sales
went to Broward County exhibitors injecting
another $31 million into South Florida's
Monies circulate through an economy several
times. A boat show visitor pays an innkeeper for
his hotel room. The innkeeper in turn pays his
help who turn around and pay their bills, etc.
Economists use something called a "multiplier" to
measure this indirect impact on an economy. An
area multiplier (M) factors proportions of: the
initial expenditure expected to stay in the area (A),
the local income spent for local goods and
services (B) and local expenditures that "accrues
as local income" (C).
The formula for a regional multiplier is;
=Ax [ l1-(BxC) ]"
Using these assumptions and formulas,
Leventhal calculated Broward County spent out-
of-town visitor and exhibitor expenditures 2.17
\times, thus projecting a $13.4 million effect upon
the local economy indirectly.
Broward exhibitors created a 1.84 spin on
their $31 million show income equaling $57.2
million through South Florida pocketbooks.
Thus, Leventhal comes up conservatively
with that "estimated $70 million" (13.4 plus 57.2)
figure that Ft. Lauderdale's International Boat
Show pumped through Broward's economy.
The 1989 Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show runs
from October 26th through the 30th at Bahia Mar.
The MIA-SF, the show's sponsor, is currently
negotiating with the marina over future shows
being held there beyond this year.

The IOGP circuit is a nationally televised
spectator sports event with races in major cities
across the country, and is sanctioned by the

MOD-VP. Brought together they form one of the
most spectacular forms of professional racing.
The year long series culminates in Fort
Lauderdale on the beautiful and treacherous
Intracoastal Waterway, just north of the Las Olas
Boulevard bridge. Current Champ Boat Class
leader is veteran Bill Seebold, one of the
winningest drivers in the history of power boat
"The Fort Lauderdale event is one of my
favorite sites on the circuit because of the
challenges and difficulties the Intracoastal
Waterway presents," explains Seebold. "Fort
Lauderdale is the perfect setting for this outboard
Grand Prix event and I'm looking forward to an
exciting weekend of racing."
The event takes place in a two-day format,
with all preliminary heats and time trials run on
the first day, building up to the hotly contested
class final Splashdowns on Sunday. Additional
entertainment activities, demonstrations and

Archaeologists versus divers & salvors
by Bryan Brooks
With new technology and the popularity of
SCUBA diving, lost historical ships are being
discovered, and sometimes plundered. When do
divers' or salvagers' rights cross over into
legitimate historical interests? These questions are
Shaving to be faced more and more often.

sunk in 1912, in over 13,000 feet of water in the
Atlantic Ocean, would ever li:.": items taken from

would ever have thought it would even have been
Historians state that these old shipwrecks are
mirrors of history and should be left untouched
until technology allows for a more precise
gathering of ancient artifacts, so that they can'be
properly documented, photographed, and placed
into museums, so everyone might learn from
them. They feel that these wrecks are sacred
tombs and should not be disturbed.
Salvagers, on the other hand, feel that
according to Admiralty and International Law,
those who find treasures and artifacts in the
ocean's depths can legally recover them.
Since in the past there were few divers and
the technology wasn't good enough to get below
a few hundred feet of water, there wasn't much
of a problem. Now, however, the doors seem to
have been'thrown open. Historians feel that this
could cause centuries of precious knowledge to
be plundered away and destroyed forever.
Historians cite examples such as the Spanish
ship Atocha found off the coast of the Florida
Keys. Although a marine archaeologist was a part
of the salvaging of the treasure, historians claim
that they didn't think nearly enough time and care
was taken in properly mapping out and
recovering the coins, cannons and other artifacts.
Historians claim that once .the wreck has been
salvaged in that way, precious history is forever
Other factors involve the high cost of ocean
exploration. Few academics have the access to
the money that treasure salvagers have at their
New state laws have been passed in Florida
that impact divers who find and want to recover

Sam Enslow, President of the Broward
County Archaeological Society, said, besides the
beginning of a bi-yearly lecture series, the
Society hopes to enlist the help of local diving
clubs as volunteers for different underwater sites
that might need to be excavated in the future. He
added quickly that the volunteers don't have to be
archaeologists. They need to be certified divers,
with the interest to learn and free time to help. On
site archaeologists will train the divers.

mouth shut and possibly destroy forever a rare
historical site. It doesn't take a college education
to find out which choice the majority of sport
divers will take.
All of us as divers feel that what we take
individually, either lobstering, spearfishing or in
treasure salvage, really won't hurt anything,
because we're just one person. Besides, we
found the damn thing, it's our right.
There are no easy answers, just some hard
ideologies that will run headlong into each other,
as technology improves, and diving becomes
more and more popular. It appears there will be
some bitter defeats for historians, as the
overwhelming numbers and dollars find their way
into the sea.
Part of the answer might be in education. Just
as the environment needs to be taught to a greater
degree in basic diving classes, so possibly does
teaching more about the importance of historical
shipwrecks, and the sport divers responsibilities
Another part of the answer, at least for divers,
might be the tack that Broward County has taken.
Unable to recover any lost shipwrecks, or at least
not having the money or knowledge to do it,
Broward County has sunk their own wrecks.
It started with the Mercedes I. These sunk for
divers and fishermen wrecks serve many
purposes. They satisfy divers' deep need to
explore shipwrecks, help start a new marine
ecosystem, and they also keep a great number of
divers off the precious and fragile reefs we have
The deeper wrecks that have the money and
technology backed salvagers coming to them are
in trouble. If the Titanic can be reached and
explored, then other historical treasures can't be
far behind. It's the old story money talks, the
rest of us walk.
The Ocean Research Institute has
announced the first annual Columbus
Quincentennial Symposium of Ft. Lauderdale
to be held October 6, 7 & 8, 1989, at the

archaeological projects underway in Haiti in
search of Columbus' Fort La Navidad, and
the efforts of various research institutions to
find the remains of Columbus' ships that
sank or ran aground in later voyages, in 1494
One of the symposium highlights will be
the public announcement of a recent
discovery by local archaeologists of the
earliest known European contact site in North
America, here in Ft. Lauderdale, and a
Portuguese map made in 1502 showing
Florida eleven years before Ponce de Leon
'discovered' and named this peninsula
The symposium is being sponsored by:
Ocean Research Institute;
Broward County Archaeolgical Society;
Marine Archaeological Council;
and is the first in an annual series of four to

The Whitbread Round the World Race,
which began September 2 off Southampton,
England, involving 23 yachts from 13
countries, has more than its share of
American connections. For the firsttime in its
16-year history, the world's longest, fully
crewed yachting event will include the U.S.
(Ft. Lauderdale) as a destination port. In
addition, Americans are participating as crew
members in many of the entries.

Liferafts must be serviced by licensed and trained technicians. Giving your liferaft to
unauthorized parties subjects you, the captain or the owner, to dangerous and unnecessary
liability. Some small businesses advertise liferaft servicing when they have only one or no
licenses. They either service your liferaft with no training, authorization, or access to correct parts,
or ship it200 miles away where they have no control over scheduling and you cannot see the raft
opened if there is a problem. Some have even taken a similar name to ours to add to the confusion.
We hold over 20 licenses that are on display.
We are the only authorized facility in Palm Beach and Broward counties for Avon,the only U.S.C.G.
certified station in that area for B.F. Goodrich. Elliot. Givens. Revere. Uniraft, and the only
Switlik station in South Florida.
We have been doing this in the area since 1978. Our four technicians have over 50 years

The sailor's inutile roach
by James Sullivan
"Roach "- the outward curve of the leech of a
The life of a sail depends largely on its
treatment. The after part carries the heaviest
strains and stresses, so should be guarded most
carefully; any small hole or failure of the stitching
will increase these strains and4nay well lead to a
blow-out sail that with care could have lasted
many thousand more miles.
Sailmakers agree that battens and batten
pockets used to create a roach are their biggest
repair items. As a fact these battens exist only as
rule-cheating devices to gain unmeasured area for
racing or for use in high aspect ratio stay-sails or
narrow jibs with flapping leeches.
Batten pockets should not fall on panel
seams, because if you need to repair the seams,
you must first remove the pocket, which is a
good deal of trouble. With roller reefing, the
battens should be parallel with the main boom,
not at right angles to the leech.
The battenless mainsail may have a slightly
reduced area with a slight speed loss but will
result in freedom from the expense and trouble of
these sticks in the sail. In addition the mainsail
will be easier to hoist.

Sailing author to speak on Atlantic
by Milt Baker
Cruising skippers who want to cross the
Atlantic under sail can get tips from an expert at a
Ft. Lauderdale seminar featuring noted cruising
author Jimmy Comell.
Mr. Cornell will speak in Fort Lauderdale on
October 14th as part of a nationwide tour.
Author of the all-time best-selling sailing
guide World Cruising Routes and the just-
released World Cruising Survey, Mr. Comell is
also the founder and organizer of the Atlantic
Rally for Cruisers known as the ARC and of the
TRANSARC rally, two successful events for
cruising sailors that attracted several hundred
participants last year.
Considered an expert on world cruising
routes, especially across the Atlantic, Mr. Comell
is also sponsoring the America 500, a special
transatlantic cruising rally in 1992. The America
500 will commemorate the 500th anniversary of
Christopher Columbus' voyage to the New
World in 1492 and will closely follow the route
Mr. Comell's interest in cruising stems from
the 60,000-mile circumnavigation he completed
with his wife and two children.
His presentation will draw on his cruising
experience and enthusiasm to acquaint his
audience with cruising routes and provide great
deal of solid information on Atlantic voyaging.
Specifically, the presentation will deal with
planning and sailing "the Atlantic Circle," an
eastward passage across the Atlantic in the spring
or summer and a westward passage to the
Caribbean before Christmas.
A question and answer session will follow
the presentation, giving Fort Lauderdale skippers
an ample opportunity to get Mr. Cornell's
opinions and advice on anything relating to an
Atlantic crossing or world cruising.
Mr. Comell will be available after the session

Fantasy Fest goes back to the future
by Andy Newman
Transforming Key West from a quaint,
turn-of-the-century community into a future
world of abandoned revelry, the annual
Fantasy Fest returns October 21-29 with its
zaniest-ever slate of frenzied festivities.
The theme of this year's celebration,
"Future Fantasies: Key West 2089," is
expected to provide all the ammunition
festivalgoers need to come up with one of the
most comical looks at the future yet.
"What began as a grass roots adult
costuming celebration has grown into one of
South Florida's most popular and outlandish
events," said Festival Director Michael
Since its beginning, colorful costuming
has always played an important role in
Fantasy Fest. This year's futuristic motif is
expected to attract some of the celebration's
most imaginative guises to date with the most
elaborate or ingenious costumes competing
for thousands of dollars in prizes.
Ground zero for the event each year is the
tropical island of Key West, a world-class
resort getaway known for its colorful
characters, many of whom seem to reserve
their most bizarre antics for Fantasy Fest. The
island's entire community gets into the act
during the eight-day-long party by
sponsoring street dances and outrageous
The festival reaches maximum madness
during the famed "Twilight Fantasy Parade,"

bands, floats and outrageous costumes, the
parade's popularity since its inception has
been its success in luring the most timid of
onlookers into the party spirit.

challenge that can only be described as
unique, the "Masked Madness & Headdress

Participants in the 3rd Annual Barefoot

route of the legendary Barefoot Mailman by
walking "barefoot" along the sand from the

back along the beach to finish at the Hamilton

Tarpon River residents to vote on plan
by M. G, Swift
On October 28, 1989, residents and
property owners of Tarpon River in
Southwest Fort Lauderdale will be polled on
a neighborhood master plan. On the drawing
board for two years, the waterfront
neighborhood's master plan was drafted by
Tarpon River residents with the aid of Fort
Lauderdale's city staff and public input.
Tarpon River's master plan encompasses
aesthetics, infrastructure, traffic/safety, ways
and means, and zoning/land use for the area
bounded on the north by New River, Davie
Blvd. on the south and the FEC Railroad
forms the community's east limit.
A master plan workshop is planned for
7:30 p.m. Thursday, October 26 at Calvary
Church's meeting hall, 706 SW 6 Street.
Tarpon River residents can also familiarize
themselves with the master plan at one of
four "information centers" located around the
neighborhood at: River Reach condominium
(condo residents only); Calvary Church;
Santa's Upholstering Company, 308 SW 6
Street (during business hours) and the Horn
residence, 611 SW 11 Court (phone: 523-
A registered voter with addresses located
within Tarpon River or a property owner in
the neighborhood each gets a ballot. Voting
will take place at the church 8:30 a.m. to 3
p.m. on Saturday, October 28. Absentee
ballots are available through the city's
Planning Division at 101 North Andrews
Avenue (phone 761-5258).
