1989 Winterfest to 'light up the world'


Winterfest ushers in the holiday season for
Fort Lauderdale. "A time not only for celebration
and good cheer, but for the spirit of togetherness,
human kindness and concern for others," said
Winterfest organizers.
"It's an expression of good will, an
outpouring of emotional feeling. No hand
without a lightstick. All hands joining in. Flags
flying. Lights glistening A celebration of
nations. A time to reflect on our blessings and
renew our hope for peace on earth and good will
to all men.
"A time, if you will, to light up the world,"
concluded the organizers.
Winterfest Boat Parade,
The Boat Parade has been a Fort Lauderdale
tradition since before 1971, becoming more
popular and elaborate with each passing year.
Boat owners go to great lengths to capture the
spirit of the season and of the Parade's theme in
their decorations. As a result, the Winterfest Boat
Parade is today an awe-inspiring display of
artistry afloat, a holiday gift to the spectators no
one can duplicate.
This glittering procession gets underway at
Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades, traveling
north on the Intracoastal -Waterway along a ten
mile route to Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano
Beach. From the lead Showboat carrying aboard
it the Parade's Grand Marshal, to the last of the
100 lavishly decorated entries, the Parade takes
about 90 minutes to pass any given point. It has
an equally impressive view from either bank of
the Intracoastal.
There are three great locations for spectators
to view this unique nighttime spectacle:

*A panoramic view of the Boat Parade and a
starry cruise aboard the SeaEscape. Lights, lights
and more lights is the magnificent sight of the
Boat Parade from aboard the luxurious
SeaEscape Cruise ship. The panoramic view of
all the Parade entries gathered together under the
glow of fireworks is unmatched anywhere along
the Parade route. And when the lights disappear,
the fun is just beginning as the ship sets sail for
an evening of food, music, shows, gambling and
other onboard attractions.
*The dockside party with the dazzling
centerpiece. The Winterfest Waterfront
Celebration is designed as an exclusive Boat
Parade Reception primarily for corporate
entertaining. This year's event will take place at
the International Swimming Hall of Fame, where
party-goers can catch an incredible view of the
Parade from the water's edge, along with
enjoying an elaborate buffet dinner, open bar,
live entertainment and dancing under the stars.


Beginning before the Boat Parade and continuing
well after the last boat has passed, this is
definitely the party of the South Florida holiday.
*Far above the crowd "an unparalleled
view from the water's edge," say the organizers.
The Las Olas viewing area is the prime family
viewing site for the Parade. The bleacher seating
area is reserved, with over 3,000 bleacher seats
prff'ring ar unobstructed view of the Intrcoastal
festivities at the Birch/Las Olas parking lot.
Food, drink and restroom facilities are all close at
hand within the bleacher area, as well as limited
convenient parking and easy access to public bus
and rail systems.
Winterfest Ball
It is the kind of night that fairy tales are made
of, with the sound of music in the air and the
bright sparkle of holiday decorations everywhere.
It's the elegant, opulent Winterfest Ball, the
jewel in the crown of Fort Lauderdale's social
season.
The Marriott's Harbour Beach Resort is the
site for this year's annual Winterfest Ball
featuring an elegant cocktail hour, fine food,
sparkling wine and fabulous entertainment.
Performers from previous years have included
The Four Tops, The Commodores, The Spinners
and Chubby Checker, making even the more
sedate socialite want to get up and dance.
A silent auction during the cocktail hour
before the Ball, and a major live auction during
the Ball generate added electricity to this shining
social event.
Winterfest Light Up Lauderdale
The streets are alive with the exhilaration and
excitement that only New Year's Eve can trigger.
And the Winterfest Light Up Lauderdale event
adds color, lasers, fireworks, lights, music,
entertainment, food and beverage and a slew of
activities to make this night one you won't soon
forget.
Revelers can make their own party masks to
bring in the New Year incognito, while others
may prefer to wear party hats and blow horns,
ringing in the New Year on a high note. They can
soar high above the crowd on a hot air balloon.
Have their photo taken with the event's famed
personality. Make themselves comfortable on
blankets and listen to outdoor concerts performed
from separate stages. Or walk around and be
entertained by strolling artists.
At the tum of the year, the downtown Fort
Lauderdale skyline lights up with an elaborate
animated, musical laser show. Following the
lasers, the sky explodes in a riotous burst of
fireworks, bringing the celebration to a
spectacular close.

Editor's log


Teri Cheney, Waterfront News' cover
artist has won second place in the fourth
annual Holiday Greeting Card Contest sponsored
by the Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel, according to
Julie Mullen of the daily newspaper. Beverly
Crist of Wilton Manors won the 19&9
competition.
Judges based their criteria on "creativity,
artistic ability, ability to capture the unique
aspects of south Florida holiday spirit and ease of
reproduction on a greeting card," stated the Sun-
Sentinel in its contest rules.
Teri Cheney, who has created every front
page illustration of the Waterfront News since
late 1984, won a $500 cash prize. Cheney also
designed the Christmas card WFN uses during
the holidays.
.Teri Cheney lives aboard her sailboat in Fort
Lauderdale and has a studio on the grounds of
Summerfield Boat Works.
,Fort Lauderdale's Council of Civic
Associations voted fifteen to two in favor of
beefing up the city's laws against residential
dock rentals with one neighborhood group
abstaining. Only Riverside Park and Middle River
representatives opposed, the council's
recommendation to the Fort Lauderdale City
Commission. Bob Walsh of Sailboat Bend
abstained from the vote. The land use provisions
of 'the new master plan for that waterfront
neighborhood located on the North Fork of New
River does not correspond with Sailboat Bend's
vote last year tolerating dock rentals behind single
family residences there.
The City Commission has yet to act upon the
political powder keg and was waiting for
feedback from the council. The city's Marine
Advisory Board had earlier recommended that the
City Commissioners not make it tougher to find


suggesting the city "go after the abusers, not the
users" of the city's waterways.

Ask Big Al


Question-
I have a 1986 Sunrunner 22-foot long with a
Volvo AQ151/290. It has an expansion tank for
cooling. I am having a problem with either the
temp gauge or overheating, I don't know which.
It has a 197% thermostat and at engine
running at 2000 rpm gauge shows 200. When I
run boat at 2600 to 2800 rpm temp gauge shows
2230. After 2800 rpm temp goes all way over to
260. If I drop the rpm back to 2600 then it goes
down.
We took the boat to Singer Island which is 4
hours steady running at 2800 and temp gauge
stayed about 240. But I have never had to add
any water or anti-freeze in the expansion tank and
engine does not seem any hotter than normal.
When I first purchased the boat they replaced
a gasket in the outdrive because of water in the
outdrive and they told me that when you had an
expansion tank these engines run hotter than
normal, and hotter than other engines that don't
have the expansion tank.
I would appreciate any information you could
help me with on this.
Don

Answer-
As -water boils at 212 degrees your
temperature gauge or your heat sender must be
way off. On a 4-hour trip you would have boiled
all your water out and had a real problem.
You can test your water by inserting a
thermometer in your tank after running awhile (be
careful removing cap) and checking with your
temp gauge reading. Running hot can be also the
fault of a too high or defective thermostat. Not
having to add water or anti-freeze is a good sign
that your trouble may be defective gauges.

Can you recommend a protective coating for
galvanized metal boat lifts that are constantly
subject to salt water?
I have a 10,000 lb. galvanized boat lift that
works great protecting my boat. However, the lift
was rather expensive and probably loses its
strength with metal deterioration.
This lift is less than a year old and I would
like to coat or paint it for a longer life.
John
A-
A good galvanizing job will last for years.
Trailers that are in and out of salt water with a
heavy galvanized job stay rust free for years.
What I would do is paint all anchor bolts which
are iron and all bolts that are not stainless or
galvanized.
Rustoleum puts out a galvanized paint which
protects all surfaces which get nicked or
scratched to the bare metal. You can use that
brushed in on all parts that get rusted or abused.
Keep all bearings lubed and oiled to prevent
wear and breakage. Wash and spray lightly to
keep looking new.
Al

Q-
Every time I get on my boat to start it I'm in
doubt whether it will start. Sometimes it spins
right over, other times it groans a few times and
that's it.
I can start it with booster cables most times,
but sometimes that doesn't help. New batteries
did not help at all. Same problem.
Charlie

A-
This is a process of elimination. New batteries;
next good tight or new cables; next clean and
bright grounds. Now check the solonoid that
kicks in the starter. If the starter has been flooded
with salt water or has never been checked that
could be your main problem.
I would do this process of checks and I know
this would help.
Al

;Q-
When I run my boat all day I get water in my
bilges and my bilge pump runs intermittently.
When I stay all night bilge is dry, pump doesn't
run. Hoses are new and tight. Stuffing boxes just
packed and do not drip. Rudder and shaft don't
leak, but water in bilge when I run.
Had boat hauled to check for cracked
fiberglass. None.
What now?
Ned
A-
What you usually have in a case like yours is
a shaft or bushing leak on your water pump.
While running water is sprayed or leaked out of
shaft. When not running no water is forced out.
Lift your hatch to check this while running
and you will see the water running down to the
bilge. It could be your intake water pump or the
pump on the front of your engine.

Q-
I am buying an older boat for pleasure and it
has been in dead storage for a number of years.
What do I have to do to get this boat in good
working order so I can use it with confidence and
safety?
Cody
A-
Buying an older boat can sometimes be a
problem. Things deteriorate with age and must be
replaced. Hoses rot. Bilge pumps bum out, wires
break and hose clamps rust and break.
I don't want to bring up problems you can
have with older engines. What I advise you to do
if you are mechanically able is to start on
replacing all hoses, all belts, all clamps and all
wires exposed or deteriorated. Water pump
impellers should be checked for wear or
breakage.
Change oil and oil filter and transmission oil
and now you can change plug wires and ignition
points, etc., on engine.
For major engine work or survey, call in a
good mechanic unless you can handle it.
Good luck!
Al


Dear Waterfront News readers-
I cannot answer personally all the letters
addressed to me. Many letters cover similar
problems, and I try to answer this through one
answer.
If you feel that I have not fully covered your
request, you can reach me at the Coast Guard
Auxiliary Base (601 Seabreeze) in Ft.Laiderdale
Saturday mornings between 9 a.m. and noon.
We do CME's (marine inspections) there if
you come by boat or you can call in advance and
speak to me personally,
I thank you for your letters and calls; the
Waterfront News sends me your mailings
immediately.

Nail the old boat carpenter


Editor's note: "Nail the old boat carpenter" is a
new feature of the Waterfront News starting this
month. The old boat carpenter will complement
Big Al's marine mechanic letters column which
has been appearing in the paper since 1984.
Question:
I just bought an older wood boat and the teak
has been unvarnished for a long time. It has
ridges and is quite rough. I want to make the
whole boat look really great. Is there any easy
way to bring the teak back to a reasonable state?
Even to perfection?
Answer:
There is no way to do what you are asking, as
far as being easy but it usually can be made to
look from good to perfect depending on how
hard you want to work at it. I have to assume that
your boat is solid teak as opposed to teak veneer
over plywood. Teak is one of the most forgiving
woods we have to work with. It can be abused
almost beyond belief and still be brought back,
sometimes to a state as good or better than when
it came from the boatbuilder. But, as I said
before, IT WONT BE EASY !
To start with, the teak has to be scraped and
sanded down till all of the rough and grey wood
Sis gone. Notice I said sand and scrape, not grind.
I do believe that wood's worst enemy is rotary
grinders in the hands of earnest saviors of wood
boats.
Start with one small area and scrape and sand
:it till you are satisfied that you have smoothed
-and cleaned all the grey that is embedded in the
grain. These grey specks show up as white spots
when the finished varnish is applied. After you
are satisfied that the surface is clear and you have
sanded out all the roughness, a coat of sealer and
at least two coats of varnish is applied.
I am suggesting that you do a small area and
apply two coats, plus the sealer, so you can see
Show well you are sanding and,fairing the area
you are working on. After two coats, the shine on
the varnished teak will tell you a lot about how
-well the job is going. It will also give you
inspiration to continue.
Good luck and send me a picture.
Q:
My windows leak on my boat and I can't
seem to find where the water comes in. Is there
an easy way to find a leak?
A:
Start where the boat is completely dry. You
need a friend who can be trusted to do as he or
she is told. You, as the most interested party will
hold the hose with a small stream so as not to
get the whole window wet. Start at the lowest
part of the window and let the water flow over the
window joints. Slowly move uphill with the
water while your partner on the inside watches
and feels for water or dampness.
I say to go slowly because if it is a small leak
the water could take several moments to work its








dE


way through. Sometimes you have to look and
feel for the water because in the short time the
hose is used, only a small amount may come
through. Whereas, in a rain storm lasting a longer
length of time a great amount could penetrate.
Should you go over the whole window and
you can't find the leak, it may not be in the
window but above it in a loose cabin or deck
fitting or even up the deck forward and above the
window, so slowly run the hose above the
window near fittings or hatches and give the
water time to penetrate to the window. A small
leak can do a lot of damage inside a nice
boat and they should be found and fixed as soon
as possible.

Q:
I have a solid teak house on my sailboat. It
has large cracks between the windows. Is there


any way short of replacing the whole cabin side
to repair this?
A:
Yes. I use what I call a feather that is wedge
shaped and thicker than, and as long as the crack.
This is glued in with epoxy glue faired and
varnished. It will show for sometime but will
eventually blend with the rest of the teak. Should
the crack be all the way through, both sides
should be done. Naturally should a house be of
mahogany or other wood, the appropriate wood
would be used.

Tarpon River plan

squeaks by voters
by M. G. Swift
By just over 50 percent, the Tarpon River
neighborhood of Fort Lauderdale voted in late
October to adopt a proposed master plan for the
waterfront community nestled south of New
River and east of that river's south fork. The plan
is expected to be formally presented to the City
Commission at a public hearing sometime in
January 1990.
304 (52.7 percent) out of 577 registered
voters and/or property owners who voted
October 28 chose to ask the city to close several
streets in the area along the west side of SW 4th
Avenue, alter zoning and land use, enhance the
aesthetics and infrastructure of the waterfront
neighborhood and discourage through traffic into
the community. 273 (47.3 percent) area residents
opposed the master plan in an all-or-nothing
referendum.
In September, supporters of Tarpon River's
master plan went to the City Commission
applying for a simple majority rule for plan
approval instead of the 70% consensus required
under the city's Neighborhood Master Plan
Program. Earlier in the summer, the River Oaks
(Citrus Isles) area had overwhelmingly rejected a
similar plan for it s neighbor just to the south of
Tarpon River and a court battle is developing
across the river in Riverside Park over their
master plan.
At the September meeting Mayor Bob Cox
S wondered if Tarpon River's request wasn't a
legal question. City Attorney Dennis Lyles
responded that he felt it was more of a political
issue because the commissioners had adopted the
70% policy after the Tarpon River group had
already started the master plan process. Thus, it
was up to the discretiontf the City Commission.
Mayor Cox asked Tarpon River Master Plan
proponent Tom Tobin at the meeting if he (Tobin)
suspected the plan could not achieve a 70%
consensus and wanted to be "grandfathered" to
the 50% plus-one approval. Tobin indicated he
anticipated little-opposition to the plan at that time.
With reservations, the commissioners OK'd
Tarpon River's 50% plus-one Master Plan
approval requirement and supporters of the plan
barely got that in the October vote. A shift in just
16 votes would have reversed the outcome of the
polls. Opponents to the master plan within
Tarpon River are considering a legal appeal to the
plan.
Meanwhile, barricades have already closed
off SW 6th Street west of 4th Avenue just south
of the Seventh Avenue bridge over New River.
No further action is expected in Tarpon River
until the January hearing.

DOT buckles in bridge dispute


by Craig Lustgarten
After over a decade of bickering that has
included several court battles, the town of Ocean
Ridge and a local doctor have succeeded in
blocking the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT) from relocating Boynton's
Intracoastal Ocean Avenue bridge to the extension
of Boynton Beach Boulevard.
The final order which recently came down
from the Department of Transportation declared
the whole issue moot until new studies are
undertaken and completed by DOTs engineers.
Mel Wilson, District IV general counsel for
DOT, remarked that a new study on the project
can be ordered at the department's discretion, and
that the engineers will decide when that study will
be initiated and what ground it will cover.
Hugh MacMillan, the attorney who has
represented the petitioners in the case Dr.
Augusto Lopez-Torres and the town of Ocean
Ridge, stated, "DOT has basically agreed to
abandon their project and the matter is finished..
should they decide to restart something, they
will not be able to rely on previous personnel or
studies regarding the proposed bridge project"
The city of Boynton Beach, which has been
counting on the relocation of the Intracoastal
bridge to Boynton Beach Boulevard as an anchor
for a series of waterside projects, now faces the
prospect of redevelopment without the bridge.
Boynton Beach Mayor Gene Moore is not
thrilled with the events that have occurred over
the past several months.
Moore declared, "I'm not happy about it (the
decision) and I think DOT sold out... if they
could overcome the environmental problems, I
don't see how a little town like Ocean Ridge can
block a majorproject like this."
Laura Widmer, public information officer for
Boynton Beach, recapped the city's position by
saying, "Our city commissions over the years
have supported construction of a new span from
Boynton Beach Bo ilevard with the thought in
mind that a bridge at that location would bring
more people and bu iness to the downtown."
Widmer continr iedthat residents living beside


the present bridge on Ocean Avenue don't want a
larger span constructed there because it would
mean more traffic outside their apartments and
would also change the character of the street in
general.
Gary Ashcraft, executive vice president of
Boynton's Chamber of Commerce, said that the
chamber wants to push forward with downtown
redevelopment of the central business district,
keeping in mind where the proposed bridge
would be located.
Ashcraft stated, "The proposed bridge has
been a key point in the development of the
downtown, but the feeling of the chamber and
some city officials is that the issue may not be
resolved any time soon, and that it would be
unwise to use it as an obstacle in the progression
of downtown redevelopment."
The question that is once again being asked is


should the present bridge on Ocean Avenue be
rebuilt?
Mayor Moore is against the idea because he
feels that the soil conditions are not conducive to
the project and that the existence of a
condominium complex on the south side of the
bridge would be adversely impacted by
construction.
So, as the town of Ocean Ridge breathes a
sigh of relief over the apparent demise of the
relocation project, new studies which DOT has
the right to do could once again start the battle all
over. Meanwhile, traffic pattern studies are
continuing along Ocean Avenue and at some
point DOT may issue another recommendation
regarding the whoie situation, as the present
bridge along Ocean Avenue is said to be outdated
and in need of repair.


Fourth annual Greater Miami Boat Parade planned


The fourth annual Greater Miami Boat
Parade, "Winter Reflections on the Bay," is to be
held December 2. The holiday boat parade will
benefit Dade County Kids in Crisis, a non-profit
organization that helps abused children.
Winning boats will be selected by Miami
Commissioners while passing Haulover Park.
Certificates will be awarded at The Waterways'
21-acre deep water harbor, where they can be
viewed by media and spectators. There will be a
Grand Finale circle within the harbor with
winning boats remaining overnight for post-
parade festivities.
"Winter Reflections on the Bay," which has
doubled in size since last year, will feature more
than 100 decorated boats ranging in size from 25
to more than 130 feet Boats will be competing
for awards in 20 categories including Best
Decorated and the People's Choice Award.
Each year boat owners compete with each
other for awards and other prizes in a spectacular
parade of brilliantly lit vessels; all tied to holiday
themes of the winter season. This year, "Winter
Reflections on the Bay" will be held on Saturday


evening, December 2 beginning at 6:00 p.m. the
boats will line up at Bayfront Park in downtown
Miami, and proceed north along the Intracoastal
Waterway to Metro's Haulover Park, 10800
Collins Avenue, where judging will take place.
The parade will continue to the Waterways
Marina, 3601 NE 207th Street, and end there
with a post-parade party which starts
about 9:30 p.m.
Along the route there will be lots of
entertainment for spectators: a Latin-jazz concert
at Bayfront Park, music and fireworks at
Haulover Park, and another giant fireworks
display at the Waterways marina. Proceeds from
the Greater Miami Boat Parade will benefit the
"Kids in Crisis" program of the Parent Resource
Center in Dade County.
Boat owners who wish to participate in the
evening parade must pre-register with the Greater
Miami Boat Parade and pay an application fee.
Tickets will also be on sale, and for information
on ticket sales and the application fee, please call
(305) 935-9959. For more details on the "Winter
Reflections on the Bay," call Haulover Park.

Impressions of Lauderdale Boat Show '89


by Steve Boone & Susan B. Peterson
This year we decided not to take the car, so
we water taxied most of the weekend to get to the
boat show at Bahia Mar. Water taxi was offering
an all day until 2 a.m. ten dollar ($10) pass
during the boat show on all water taxi routes, and
we had some lovely rides around town and down
New River, with all the gorgeous houses and
magnificent yachts to see.
As the sturdy little water taxis rolled to the
famous Intracoastal chop, we were reminded
how much we enjoy boating, and all its many
subtleties.
We disembarked at Coconuts the first day,
and had lunch there, on the way to pick up our
press passes.
As always, the walk along Seabreeze toward
the boat show's main entrance was a hair-raising
experience. Why can't we have decent sidewalks
and better safety planning during the boat show?
We hated to see tiny babies in strollers right next
to moving traffic on the road their parents
forced to walk in the street because of parking on
the grassy swale, and no sidewalks on the
western side of Seabreeze, between A1A and the
Hall of Fame pool.
From the main entrance on A1A we entered
the big tent. Among displays of boating
equipment, clothes, and nautical art, we spied a
bronze mermaid, and bought her on the last night
of the show.
Bahia Mar has served for many years as a
great place for the boat show to be held. The
exhibit area is large, and until recently, the docks
have proven spacious enough for the in-water
portion of the show. As we took our first stroll
around the maze through which the organizers
have chosen to route show-goers, and came out
into the outdoor exhibit area, it seemed to us that
perhaps it is time to consider some alternatives to
what is now a confusing and often frustrating
sense of disorder.
Unlike some of its large competitors, who
have either split their shows into one week power
and one week sail, or divided their locations up
amongst the community, Ft. Lauderdale has
stayed with the single site type of show. We
think it has outgrown this site. Possibly, when
the convention center is up and running at the
Port, the alternatives will be more attractive.
Perhaps, water taxis could connect the
convention center with in-water sites at Pier 66
and Bahia Mar, suggested yacht broker Jim
Bleech.
We wondered where all the sailboats had
gone? The '89 boat show had limited dockage
devoted to sailboats this in Ft. Lauderdale, one
of the sailing centers of the U.S.! When asked
why this was, many of the exhibitors commented
that there was more profit built into the sale of
power boats. Some dealers said that because this
show was not a manufacturer's show, they
couldn't afford to "floor-plan" (finance) a large
inventory for the show. A Marine Industries
Association spokesman said he thought the lack
of sailboats was part of a cycle, and present
trends are more toward power boats, while
sailboats were more prominent in the show six
years ago. One exhibitor pointed out that the
Miami International Boat Show can support a
large sailboat fleet because it tends to be "a
manufacturer's show;" whereas, the Lauderdale
show seems to attract "individual dealers," he
theorized.
Despite all that, the show is still a spectacular
event, with more than enough to see and do in an
entire weekend.
New electronic equipment is always exciting,
and this year our favorite was a remote controlled
submersible TV camera, the "Bluey." With 160-
plus feet of tether available on the current model,
it should prove to be a valuable accessory on
larger yacnts, and a handy tool with many
applications in the marine service industry.


The Bluey crew's display, with its friendly
Aussies (including the son of the inventor) and
plexiglass tank containing the underwater video
camera, was one of the more popular ones with
the public.
People walking by could see themselves in
the video monitor next to the tank, as Bluey
transmitted their video image from inside the tank
underwater, to the video screen.
Boating publications of all types seemed to be
more in evidence this year than in the past. Many
offered free issues, and one, The Yacht, offered a
free year's subscription for anyone who could tie
a 'bowline' knot in 3 seconds or less. Not
accepting the notion that all journalists are ham-
fisted except on a computer terminal, we took the
challenge, and were rewarded with a year's
subscription in 2.44 seconds, thank you.
As usual, there were more than enough new
little gadgets and gizmos to go around. We were
trying to find something that was the "better
mousetrap" of the show, and this year our
candidate would have to be the "Clover Cleat."
Invented by an ex-GM engineer, because his wife
could never learn how to properly use the
conventional type of cleat, the Clover Cleat looks
just like a 4 leaf.clover when viewed from the
top. It is so simple that you will walk away
shaking your head, saying, Why didn't I think
of that?"
The cleat comes in sizes ranging from a 3-
inch to a 6-inch with a round base, or a 4-inch
with rectangular base, for application where
space is limited.
The outdoor part of the exhibit area was filled
to the last square centimeter with small boats of
all sizes and description, and is our least favorite
part of the show. Nowadays, there seems to be
so much duplication and clone type of equipment,
that it is hard to find the gems that are always at
the show.
We were particularly impressed with two little
sailing dinks the "Trinkas," made by Marc
Johannsen in Miami.
The Trinka stands out in a crowd! One of our
complaints with this year's show was that there
weren't enough boats'with that "apart from the
rest" style. When we first saw the Trinkas, they
sat in the middle of a row of "son of clone" open
skiffs, and really caught our eye. Marc
Johannsen, the manufacturer, was there to
answer our questions. He told us that his boats
are essentially tenders or dinghies for medium
size yachts, and are available in 8- or 10-foot
sizes with a simple sailing rig optional for both.
The Trinkas' elegant appearance impressed
us. Marc Johannsen pointed out details which
show how strongly the dinghies are built, and
how much attention had obviously been paid to
detail, indicating very high quality construction.
And though they are more expensive than similar
types of dinks, they are still affordable either as a
yacht tender, or an entry level boat for people
who don't want to make the large investment
required for even the modest runabouts on the
market today.
Another favorite of ours, especially
pricewise, was the Abaco 24, a spartan, but
nicely designed traditional style sloop with the
unusual Bahamian leg-o-mutton mainsail,


modernized with a fully-battened sail. You can
still buy this yacht for less than a thousand
dollars a foot!
Speaking of large investments, the mega-
yachts that lined the entire fuel dock were
imposing, to say the least, but with few
exceptions we found them to be look-alikes,
differing only in length and zany paint jobs.
It's hard to understand how these yachts-cum-
patrol boats have all but replaced the graceful,
elegant Burgers and Feadships of just a few years
ago. We presume it's caused by too much TV.
Tucked in amongst this forest of polyester
was the sinister, business-like 110 ft. Gentry
Eagle, winner this July of the 'Blue Riband' for
the fastest Atlantic crossing between the U.S. and
England.
She did so admirably, in 2 days, 14 hours 7
min., averaging 55.61 mph for 3,437 miles
between New York harbor and Bishop's Rock in
England. An amazing accomplishment!
When the opportunity to take a guided tour of
the boat was presented to us, we jumped at the
chance. Our guide was Dale Rainbow, who was
in charge of the mid-ocean refueling operation
during the record-setting Atlantic crossing.
When we entered the bridge deck, which
consisted almost entirely of a control/operations
center, we marveled at the aircraft-like ambience
of the stations as we were given a rundown of the
various operational and technical procedures used
during the course of the record-setting run.
Climbing into the pilot/captain's seat with its long
unobstructed view to the ocean was a thrill!
What a fantastic experience the record run
must have been, indeed what a testament to the
toughness and skill of that crew, to have been
able to average that kind of speed in the North
Atlantic ocean for over two and one-half days!
SFrom the bridge we went below, first to see the
fuel tank set-up, which occupied the forward
third of the boat, save for a small foc'sle locker.
The fuel was stored in an ingenious combination
of soft (bladder) and hard (aluminum) types of
construction.
Amidships were the crew accommodations -
four heavily padded pipe-berths and a small
galley. What a contrast to the yachts she shared
the dock with at this boat show! Propelled by two
KaWaMe jet drives, each with a turbo-diesel,
MTU engine, and an Ameson surface drive
powered by a marine turbine, the Gentry Eagle
surely represents the ultimate in high speed
marine technology. Congratulations to Tom
Gentry and crew!
What our favorite displays of this boat show
had in common, was a good-natured crew and
courteous, well-informed presentations. "The
Yacht" magazine, with its bowline tying contest,
the Clover Cleat presenters, the Trinka display
and the Gentry Eagle all shared this quality, and
made the boat show more enjoyable for us.
If we had our druthers, though, we would
rather see a better assortment of all types of boats,
from the little "Trinkas" to the 100-plus-foot
luxury yachts. The fact that there was a popular
antique boat display at this year's show, indicates
that management has not turned a deaf ear to
those who would like this boat show to be more
interesting in the future.

10 Waterfont News December 1989 Cruising


A sea of contradictions
Photos by Jesse Leaf


by Mindy Leaf
History can't even seem to agree on a name.
Israelis call it Yam Kinneret ("Harp Sea" in
Hebrew for its oval, instrumental shape),
though it was known as Lake Tiberias (after its
chief coastal city) in the days of British rule. But
to the multitudes of Christian faithful, the 13- by
7-mile body of water in Israel's Jordan Valley
will always be the Sea of Galilee, a.k.a. their
Savior's favorite strolling site.
This "sea" actually lies 656 feet below sea
level, landlocked between the Galilee Hills and
Golan Heights. Its waters, flowing from snowy
mountain ranges that feed the Jordan River, are
so pure and sweet that they serve as Israel's
largest, fresh-water reservoir. A natural lake, a
reservoir why does everyone still stubbornly
insist on calling it a sea?
Any sailor will tell you. The Galilee's
prevailing wind conditions are unlady-lake-like at
best. Though early mornings find the sea
shimmering smooth as glass, Mediterranean
westerlies invade by one or two in the afternoon,
stirring strong, fluky gusts of up to 40 knots that
simply don't let up. Then it's easy to picture that
story of Jesus and Peter caught up in a Galilee
storm. Obviously, the Kinneret acts more like a
sea. At times a treacherous sea. Should the
uninitiated attempt to sail across?
Tzachy Gross, whose family was one of the
first to recognize the area's tourist potential (their
Lido shoreside restaurants and charter cruiseships
are now recognized world-wide) thinks the
Galilee's waters are simply too unpredictable for
the Sunday sailor. "We used to charter two
Lasers," says Gross, "but it didn't work out
because people were forced to use too much fuel

and then we had to go out and rescue them in the
afternoon."
Others find the inland sea's quirks a desirable
challenge, more captivating than irksome. The
Tiberian Sea Scouts (a nautical version of our
own boy scout troops) maintain a fleet of 420s
and some speedboats, boLh for their own pleasure
and outside hire. And here's talk of a Dutch
company that has becon so enamored with the
Galilee that they are a -anging to supply the
Jordan River Hotel in Tiberias with 250 sailboats
- 420s, Flying Dutchmen, perhaps some larger
models as well.
The deal is the Dutch get to use their boats
and the hotel's facilities when they come down
for their annual winter vacation. (Thanks to its
low topography, the Galilee boasts year-round
swim and sail weather.) The rest of the time the
hotel, which will be maintaining the fleet, may
charter the boats to the public.
But the bulk of the Galilee's yearly harvest of
70,000 or more waterbound visitors are not
sailors, or even powerboaters, but rather
packaged busloads of highly imaginative
Europeans on a pilgrimage to discover new
spiritual meaning among the scenes of
Christianity's past. The Israelis who harbor a
similar zeal for Biblical landscapes and artifacts -
have floated out the red carpet for their Christian
guests.

includes stops at Capernaum to view remains of
the synagogue where Jesus first preached and the
home of St Peter, and "Yardenit" at the tip of the
Jordan River where Jesus was first baptized by
John. The Yardenit site is part of the grounds of
Degania Aleph, Israel's first kibbutz; and the
kibbutzniks have built a nice rustic-looking
bridge and staircase to accommodate the flocks of
believers who maintain a wade in the "Holy

A sea of contradictions


Waters" will cure everything from a bad marriage
to boils.
The sea's latest religious attraction which
promises to become the tourist industry's biggest
boon yet is Kibbutz Ginossar's raising of a
2,000-old shipwreck. The wreck's been dubbed
"Jesus' boat" (after all, he might have stepped
foot on the vessel way back then) and though
currently under painstaking reconstruction by
archaeological experts, the locals are already busy
spreading the news of their hot new shrine,
housed at the Yigal Allon Kibbutz museum.
As the devout will be the first to admit, an
abundance of ecstasy can make a body hungry.
To meet the need, seafood restaurants
specializing in the Kinneret's unique brand of
fish have been hatching like guppies throughout
the coast. Kibbutz guest houses (the home-grown
equivalent ofB&B at a country inn), commercial
spas (the area is blessed with natural hot springs
too) and private beaches all feature excellent,
waterfront dining facilities. And their most
popular dish? Would you believe St. Peter's fish?
I kid you not. You'll find the St. Peter
namesake at the top of every menu, despite the
fact that there's nothing the least bit saintly-
looking about this squat, flat, rather ugly relation
to the African perch. The fish arrives blank-eyed
and crispy-tailed one perfectly preserved
specimen just lying there on the dinner plate.
Remember when you were served your first
lobster? Getting to the tender heart of a St. Peter
is much simpler, though here, too, it pays to
watch an expert. Yoram Nachshol is Israel's
deputy director of shipping and ports, a former
navy man, Sea Scout, Olympic swimmer and the
world's number one mayven (expert) on how to
eat a St. Peter's fish.
"First you break off the tail," says Nachshol.
That part's, literally, a snap. He pops the tail into
his mouth and proceeds to chew with relish. Tht,

fishtail is crisp and light and tastes somewhat like
an unseasoned potato chip. "Then you dig in
gently, like this, with your fingers," Nachshol
continues. Like something out of Indiana Jones
and the Temple of Doom, he plunges through the
dark, crisp-fried exterior, revealing an expanse of
white flesh. The meat pulls up moist and tender,
leaving the whole brutal-looking skeleton behind.
The taste is so exquisite, one soon forgets the
dead fish eye's accusatory stare. By the time
you're ready for the flip side, you're an old hand,
and just as unselfconsciously helping yourself to
handfuls of British-tasting French fries as well.
If you're the type who prefers to fish for his
own dinner, here's an interesting bit of living
Bible. St. Peter's injunction at Mensa Christi, an
ancient fishing harbor on the Galilee, went: "Feed
my lambs ... feed my sheep," (John XXI, 15-21
And the sea's been doing just that- religiously -
ever since. (The Kinneret currently boasts a
2,000-ton annual catch.) Old fishermen can still
be seen casting their nets into the water, in much
the same way as their brethren of 2,000 years
ago, and then hauling up heavy loads of the sea's

traditional silvercarp, bleak; trout, barbel and, of
course, mushit, or St. Peter's fish.
But today you'll also find catfish, carp and
mullet, which have been recently introduced from
the Mediterranean, as well as kibbutz members
employing the latest fishing technology.
Nevertheless, there's plenty great fishing left
for the sportfisherman. Lido and other charter
companies along the coast provide fishing boats
as well as standard tackle and not-always-so-
standard bait. Gross swears that the St. Peter
fish's favorite lures are native olives and grapes.
If you're lucky, you might even land a kasif the
Kinneret's shark-like silvercarp average weight
one- to 14-pounds around the world but in this
sea of miracles weighing in at up to 100!
So though the Kinneret may be technically a
circumscribed lake, its fascination knows no
bounds. The sea's surface remains as beautiful
and unpredictable with each passing minute, hour
and season today as in days long gone. The old
Jewish sages sensed its allure, asserting, "After
the Lord had created the seven seas, it was the
Sea of Galilee he loved best." A popular Israeli
folk song plaintively asks: "How can I paint you,
Kinneret? For you exhibit a thousand faces from
dawn to dusk."

16 Waterfront News December 1989 Diving


SReef wars


by Bryan Brooks
"I used to take my students there over twenty-
five years ago. Now look at it, it's just rubble."
The sad blue eyes look at you out of the
tanned, rugged, handsome face that has dove in
most of the waters of the world. It is the face that
no one recognizes as James Bond in all of the
Bond movie underwater scenes; the face that no
one sees when they look on in horrified shock
and terror in the Jaws films.
That face is expressionless now,. No movie
fluff this time, just an old, veteran Navy diver
and underwater pioneer, who remembers Fort
Lauderdale as it used to be, and now resents what
it hag become. Big John McLaughlin speaks, as
his video tape shows his audience the large
anchor chain laying on what was once a beautiful
section of the third reelf This section of the third
reef is near a place called Spotfin.
Spotfin is located iust north of Port
Everglades in 45 to 100 feet of water. The name
Spotfin comes from the beautitfu butterfly fish
tha| used to swim on this reef.
Big John's video shows no spotfin butterfly
fish now, only a vast, ievel, empty field of
rubble.
"Each one of those links in the chain must
weigh 50 to 70 pounds, and there is over four
hundred feet of chain that works its way back to
the large freighter." The video shows only too
well what Big John is saying,
:It's not just the anchor, Look," as he points
to the video, "the anchor is in the sand, hurting
nothing, but see the anchor chain, it droops over
the coral.
"When the bad weather comes and the ship
swings around, the chain is like a giant knife, it
just cuts through anything in its path."
The scene is all too familiar in Fort
Lauderdale. Looking at the once healthy groups
of coral communities sitting on tracts of long
dead ice-age reef, there are no silhouettes of coral
heads. There are no canyons of gently swaying
soft corals and sponges; no schools of reef fish,
such as the spotfin butterfly; all one sees is the
rubble.
Big John's camera is now on his companion,
marine geologist and long-time reef activist Bill.
Raymond. Raymond can be seen stirring the
rubble; dust flies up it's coral rubble that has
turned to dust. The Bible quote of, "ashes to
ashes and dust to dust," comes to mind.
Raymond is another diving pioneer in
Broward County. His voice has cried out for
over ten years about the damage being done on
the reefs off this beautiful south Florida mecca
we call Fort Lauderdale.
As the camera scans the scene, other thoughts
come to mind. This time the thoughts are of the
images we have all seen of Hiroshima after the
atomic bomb was dropped; the images are of
desolation and death.
But this is Fort Lauderdale and 1989. Now
Big John McLaughlin and Bill Raymond swim
below the familiar waters, and look in disbelief at
the empty field of rubble. Hardened by a life in
the ocean, and used to seeing much of man's
madness on the water planet, Big John and Bil
Raymond would curse you and refuse to admit
that in the silence and peace of the ocean, where
no one can see them, they might cry at what they
see, and remember what used to be.
This tmre, though, they might have started
something. The media is alerted. Big John's
video was on the 11:00 o'clock news. There is a
picture and story about Big John and Bill

Raymond in the local print news.
Questions by veteran and knowledgeable,
environmentally wise journalists, such as Steve
d'Oliveira, are being asked,
The video continues as Big John's deep voice
says, "The harbormaster in the Port now tells
them to anchor off the corals. But the problem is,
that half the big freighters don't contact the Port,
They just drop anchor, I know because I monitor
their radio."
According to Big John and Bill Raymond, the
Port Everglades Commission has passed a
resolution relating to this matter. The
Commissioners of Broward County have passed
a similar resolution, stating that the ships should
find a proper anchorage in the sand, where no
chain and anchor will cause any more damage.
Fort Lauderdale's mayor. Bob Cox, also
supports the divers' cause. His Honor the mayor
knows a little about the water world off Fort
Lauderdale: he has owned a marina here since the
late 1940s.
Bui: marine geologist Bill Raymond says the
problem has only gotten worse, not better, and
still- nothing is being done.
Captain Michael Lamphea from the Florida
Marine Patrol heartily endorses their actions, but
says that there is no chart made which points out
where the coral is, or where an anchorage should
be. It is already against the state law to hurt or
take corals, but without the chart change it would
be impossible to enforce this law because you
couldn't show that it was done intentionally.
Okay.v Who makes the charts? What's the
bottom line?
Big John and Bill Raymond say the federal.
government, through the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, does.
What does NOAA say?
Dave Konop, NOAA's public affairs officer,
has been quoted in the Fort Lauderdale News,
saying his agency would seriously think about
putting the reef and anchorage zone on the charts,
but didn't know when that may come about. He
didn't think that would solve the problem.
The local, state ana federal governments all
agree, its bad, After the Exxon disaster in
Alaska, and ships going aground on the coral
reefs off the Florida Keys, politically, the
environment is as safe as a hardline communist in
eastern Europe.
Even our Republican governor, Bob
Martinez, is shown on nightly news, dutifully
jumping in the ocean with mask and snorkel to
cry foul, when yet another freighter pushes itself
onto the Florida Keys.

Then why don't all the governments we pay
taxes to do something? Why don't they talk to
each other?
Money, Honestly, in trying to be the devil's
advocate, if we stop the freighters from coming
into Port Everglades, who would suffer? We all
would. Our economy might be drastically
affected.. If we stopped expanding Port
Everglades and killing more of the few remaining
acres of mangroves, we might be affected down
the line in the pocketbook.
If we stopped letting people drive boats over
our waterways just because they don't know
how, and stopped them from killing sach otner
and all the remaining manatees: again, te
economy might suffer.
Hard choices. Possibly for you, but for this
old cracker, whose family has been here since
1898, side with the manatees and mangroves.
But people wil. argue, "That's all very nice
and romantic, but this place would dry up."
Near as 1 can remember my family telling me,
that before the Yankees came, Ponr Everglades
didn't exist, it's man-made, We killed a zillion
mangroves to build the damn thing. They also
told me back then, they were eating, wearing
clothes, sleeping on real beds. and procreating,
though not necessarily in that order,
But again; this is 1989. Fori Lauderdale, in
spite of its urbanizing, its concrete canyons of
condos by some incredible miracle, still has
some life under its water, in spite of all those
wonderful people who have come here to.make
life better for us olo crackers by filling in the
swamps; in spite of all that, we still have some
part of the. three tracts of coral communities that
are like mountains of coral. We still have
beautiful schools of reef fish, such as the spotfin
butterfly.
But not at or near Spotfin Reef. Not
anymore.
As the craggy old warriors, Big John
McLaughlin and Bill Raymond, don their
SCUBA gear and slip beneath the warm waters of
the Atlantic, they wonder about the coral
communities that exist further north and south of
Port Everglades. They wonder how long those
coral communities might still be allowed to exist
there?
But then they wonder if anyone really cares?

Elkhorn coral in

by Bryan Brooks
Acropora Palmata, the elkhom coral, is
usually associated with the pristine hard coral
reefs in the Florida Keys. Elkhom coral is listed
as a master builder of shallow reefs. Sadly, many
of us are used to seeing the beautiful elkhom
coral on television news as victims of freighters
that have run aground in the keys.
Up to now most veteran divers have taken it
for granted that the exotic elkhom coral just
Doesn't grow off Broward County, though none
Af us, as amateur naturalists, ever knew why.
Broward County's reefs, as oldtimers know,
is a relic from long dead ice age reefs that existed
over 10,000 years ago. As the ice age ended and
the waters of the world started to rise, for
whatever reason, those beautiful hard coral reefs
lied. They left behind the limestone foundations
of it s existence, and this local divers have
always called the first, second and third reefs.
On those limestone tracts that run north and
south, parallel to our shores, have grown
beautiful communities of soft corals, such as sea
fans, multi-colored sponges and other forms of
life known as soft coral. The big plus in all this
ife is the abundance of fish life around the coral
colonies.
There are some communities of hard coral,
;uch as brain coral, star coral, staghom coral and
ven a few pillar coral stands, but no one has
;een any of the beautiful elkhom corals.
What was intriguing however, was that in
;pending close to two thousand hours under
vater here during the last thirty years, I have seen
several, in fact many, skeletons of elkhom coral.
k lot of them are there to be examined on Cuda
Zeef, which is a part of the second reef.
Cuda Reef lies directly east of John U. Lloyd
7tate Park. The elkhom coral skeletons lie in
pieces on the bottom, just west of the west facing
vail that runs north and south.
For years, in taking students on checkout
lives, I passed right over them, not realizing
vhat they were. Finally, it dawned on me what I
vas looking at. After awhile, I would make a
;ame of it, trying to see how many elkhom coral
skeletons I could find.
I remember proudly showing skeleton finds
o my fledgling students on their checkout dives.
thinking I had done something really neat, I saw
heir puzzled faces looking at me through their
irand new face masks; wondering if I had gone
iver the edge, or sucked too much nitrogen.:
In a recent story about Fort Lauderdale's
eefs, professional photographer Deborah Meeks
3ok a picture of a diver holding a piece of an
Ikhom coral skeleton. The shot was taken on the
iird reef, just north of the Hillsboro Inlet. An
known caller claiming to know what he was

talking about screamed four letter words at us

the picture was a lie. Meeks, known to her
friends as D. J., and I laughed. I was there when
she took the picture.
But what about any living elkhom coral?
Does any of the stuff live here in Broward
County? Recently underwater photographer Mary
Brooks was led to a shallow reef by veteran local
diver Wayne Desimone. Sure enough, nestled
among a cluster of other coral, there was a small
stand of living elkhom coral. Mary had her
camera with her and documented in slides that the
beautiful coral was there.

anchors, all the pollution, somewhere out there a
small elkhom coral fights the odds and lives.
Why don't we have more elkhom coral off
Fort Lauderdale?
Doctor Dick Dodge, from Nova University's
graduate school for oceanography, feels that it
might be because the temperature extremes are
greater off Fort Lauderdale than off the Florida
Keys. Dr. Dodge explained that the temperature
difference was just a theory, because they haven't
done enough studies to be sure.
Marine geologist Bill Raymond agreed with
Dr. Dodge. He felt the elkhom coral is extremely
sensitive and the temperature difference might be
the reason.
Raymond also said that the elkhom corals
found in the Keys-are on what is known as outer
reefs. Fort Lauderdale's reefs are classified as
bank reefs. This might inhibit elkhom coral from
growing here.
Raymond stated that he has done core drilling
on the second and third reefs here and found
elkhom corals. He carbon-dated the cores and
found that they ranged from 4450 to about 2500
years ago.
The high profiles that divers see as they glide
along the west facing edges of the second and
third reefs are in fact long dead masses of elkhom
coral, explained Bill Raymond. This probably
explains why I kept finding pieces of elkhom
coral skeletons on the second and third reef.

Top Whitbread race posters to be exhibited at Art Institute


by Randy Kambic
The excitement and adventure of sailing the
high seas, exemplified by the Whitbread Round
the World Race, captured the imagination of more
than 350 Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale students
last summer. With the Ft Lauderdale stopover of
the world's most prestigious sailing event fast
approaching, the public can now gain the same
feeling by viewing the best examples of their
creativity.
The Art Institute will begin a one-month
exhibit of the top 54 entries in the official
Whitbread Round the World Race poster contest
for the North American stopover in the Mark K.
Wheeler Gallery on Wednesday, December 6,
with a special public reception and awards
ceremony at 8 p.m.
The entry by Bo Huber of Ft. Lauderdale was
recently judged the best and selected as the
official race poster. He created a stunning image
of a yacht being lifted high on a wave on a
moonlit night, using predominantly various
shades of blue. Huber will receive the $1,250
first place prize from the local Whitbread Race
Committee at the reception. The 28-year-old
student, who graduates in December with an
associate degree in advertising design, has
overcome keratoconus, a hereditary eye disease,
to pursue his art career.
Art Institute graduate Gary Mun-Keung Tang
of Deerfield Beach and current student Hector
Lopez of Fort Lauderdale,. respectively, have
been awarded second and third place prizes of
$500 and $250, respectively. ,Students who
submitted the top 54 entries are receiving special
certificates.
Most of the works were created through
combinations of gouache, acrylic or oil painting,
charcoal, airbrush, pastel, cut paper, pencil or
ink.
Judging was conducted based on originality,
'theme, poster suitability, use of color,
typography and quality of craftsmanship. The
judging panel consisted of Frank A. Raia, vice
president and director of education of the Art
Institute; Betty Lou Curry, curator of education,*
Art Museum of Fort Lauderdale; Hudson
Whitley, a local banker and Dick Van den Bosch,
commercialization director of the Ft. Lauderdale
race committee.
The official race poster will be available soon
at local yacht clubs and other merchants. It is also
available by mail by sending a check or money
order of $12; that includes postage and handling
charges, to Art Visions International, 4742 N.W.
Boca Raton Blvd., Boca Raton, FL 33431.
The 23 yachts from 13 countries in the
Whitbread Race, which began September 2 from
Southampton, England, will arrive in Ft.
