Waterfront neighborhood shows


its historic roots with tour


by M. (S. ,S'if
Sailboat Bend will hold that waterfront
neighborhood's third annual Historic House and
Garden Tour of old Fort Lauderdale on Sunday,
January 14, 1990. Featured this year along with
five homes will be the Francis Abreu "designed
fire station."
"Now that seventeen blocks of Sailboat Bend
have been designated historic and we have
qualified for Masterplan status, we have been
busy planning and implementing a broad
approach to beautifying, enhancing and
improving what history has left us," observes
James Maupin. "Two of our boundaries are
formed by New River, created by a natural
phenomenon, the splitting of the earth's crust,
reported to have been an ovemight occurrence.
This river supported the Tequesta Indians in 1450
B.C., Seminoles and Afro-American runaway
slaves in 1793 and a settlement of some fifty or
sixty homesteaders in 1835. When William
Cooley's family was massacred in 1836 at
Cooley's Landing (soon to become the western
end of Riverwalk), it prompted the arrival of
Major William Lauderdale and the construction of
the first fort in 1838, one-eighth of a mile west of
Cooley's Landing at the base of the forks of New
River all part of Sailboat Bend," stated Maupin,
historian of the Sailboat Bend Civic Association.
"Some fifty years later, pioneers returned to
New River and began to build. Many of these-
structures from 1912 through the forties still
remain and are representative of the simple
cracker architecture created from Dade County
pine by the blue collar families who would also
be the occupants. There are other styles,
Mediterranean revival shotgun and one example
of bungalow, which are also included in this
cluster of structures but the overwhelming
number are of the wood frame, platform, Cracker
style. These were structures which were
inexpensive to build because they were created
from vernacular materials. Some of them display
surprising detail, imagination and workmanshup
which might have been commonplace fifty years
ago but is a rarity," concluded Maupin.
Four out of the five of the historic houses are
new to the tour this year. The returning home is a
before-and-after project; those who toured
Sailboat Bend two years ago may note the
improvements.
Three structures on this year's tour are all
located in the 700 block of west Las Olas, a block
which typifies the hopes and dreams for this
historic village. The entire block is in the process
of restoration and innovation. It offers two major
styles of architecture from the twenties through
the forties, Dade County pine Cracker and


Mediterranean revival. The white picket fencing
displayed at three homes on today's tour and the
new gas lamps in Major William Lauderdale Park
are new and symbolic of what is hoped to
become the signature of the "Historic Village of
Sailboat Bend."
724 West Las Olas Blvd. was built in 1926
of Dade County pine faced with masonry. The
owner, Patrick Gilles, has not only renovated this
simple structure but re-conceived its interior and
surrounding grounds. The living space is charged
with energy and drama using contemporary art
and bold colors. The new sliding glass doors lead
to a very private deck, pool and garden. We first
discovered this hideaway in our very first house
and garden tour of 1988. The pool has been
added since that date and, by popular demand,
here we are again in this inventive and exciting
historic adaptation.
717 West Las Olas Blvd. was restored by
Joe Bellanca and is owned and occupied by Nick
Yanuzzi and Ralph Hemdon. Built in 1941, it
displays original siding, hardwood floors, arched
doorways and Gate City awning windows. The
front porch, French door and back decking have
all been added. When you look at this functional,
modem kitchen, you would never suspect that
only a few months ago there was a large round
hole in the floor where intruders had created their
own inside bonfire. Things have improved.
Imagination, good taste, an appreciation of
contemporary needs balanced with old world
charm demonstrate what can be done with an old
house that contains the charm and character
which is missing from so many newer structures.
723 West Las Olas Blvd. has been restored
by the new owner, Evan Anthony, who is
currently working on the adjoining Las Olas
Apartments. You will notice that the original front
porch has been preserved, also the hurricane
shutters, fireplace, fluted window and door
frames with rosette crowns and hardwood floors.
Take a long look at the modernized kitchen which
contains a large original hutch of the Early
American style. The addition of ceiling molding,
French doors, wallpaper trim in the kitchen and
bath, also the decking in the rear are all
compatible with this Dade County pine structure
of 1924.
Other stops on the 1990 tour include:
827 S.W. 2nd Court is one of the most
important historical structures in Sailboat Bend,
originally built and owned by the first master
builder of Ft. Lauderdale, George Young, in
1912. Virginia Shuman Young, Mayor of Ft.
Lauderdale in 1971, lived in this house as a
newlywed married to George Young Jr. The

Waterfront neighborhood shows roots


Waterfront roots / continued from page i
house has been wonderfully restored by its
owner, Bob Pepper. Although the beam and post
treatment which divides the livingroom from the
dining room is typical Ior the period;, this
treatment also displays built-in book cabinets.
There are original windows mixed with
compatible new ones. The floors and fireplace are
also authentic. A most unusual Iealure of this
house is the tornado shelter in the rear. This
concrete, hexagon structure was added when a
couple from the mid-west purchased the house
and the wile refused to relocate until she had
protection from tornadoes, an obvious confusion
with hurricanes.
1217 SW 4th Court was one of those
homes built by a retired couple who planned to
live out the remainder of their years in this two
bedroom, 1 bath abode, typical of their flies. The
current owner, Walter Guzowski. has removed
the front obstructions in the latwn in order to
permit a frontal view of the clean and simple lines
displayed by this structure (see the belore-photos
that he displays). The old, westenly carport has
been enclosed giving birth to a family room
where obsolete inside windows are now covered
by art work. This cinder-block structure offers
original hardwood Iloors, a new bath and kitchen
and a wonderful backyard complete with decking
and a pool.
FIRE STATION. The most prestigious
structure in this historic district is the Francis
Abreu fire station. Built in 1927, it was designed
by one of the most distinguished architects of this
period. Since the house and garden tour of 1989,
you can see many improvements in this
neighborhood including the landscaping of SW
S1th Ave. (soon to be Palm AveIlne) and the new
barrel tile roof on outr fire statliol. Francis Abreu
has designed this Mediterranean revival structure
with the addition of many surprising details:
Victorian-styled porch props which frame the
windows and add 10 the building's profile,
elegant detailed arches which frame the truck
doors, a miniature tower entrance, a Spanish
detailed chimney, decorative clay tiles and hand-


crafle-d 'wood oo(rs which appear to be CLII from
sections of barrels. One visil is nievcr enough as
something new can always be discovered in this
wonderful structure. We thank Fire Chief Sparr
for inviting our guess ino s ino rs are example ol
urban architecture.
Admission to Sailboat Bend's -listoric

Due to a record drought, water
conservation measures have been imposed on
all of southeastern Florida from Jupiter to
Key West. Area boat owners face new
restrictions on water use announced in
December by the South Florida Water
Management District.
Boaters in south Florida can wash down
their vessels for only five minutes once a
day. The new rules which went into effect
December 18,1989 are backed by $25 fines
and are being enforced by local police.
The total amount of water currently stored
in Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades has
declined to the lowest level on record. Those
reservoirs will not have enough water to
supply drinking water to all four million
residents of Dade, Broward and Palm Beach
counties, unless widespread reductions in
water consumption are taken by urban
dwellers' and farmers, warn area water
managers.
The second National Marina
Research Conference will be held at
Clearwater Beach, Florida on January 12-14,
1990. Organizers hope to bring together
"academic, private and government
researchers with marina industry leaders,
marina owners, government regulators,
admiralty lawyers, extension specialists and
others" to explore "the complex physical,
social, economic and environmental
perspectives of the water dependent boat
access and service facilities including
marinas, boatyards, dockominiums and yacht
clubs."
Put together by the International Marina
Institute and hosted by the Florida Sea Grant
Marine Advisory Service, the Clearwater
conference will be followed up on February
12-14 in Fort Lauderdale by a Ngional
Marina Risk Management .:iCpnference.
For more details call the institute in
Wickford, Rhode Island at 401-294-9558.

Rules of the Road enforcement not enough


Editor:
I read with great interest Fred Edwards'
article on Safety in November's issue. It refers to
the rules of the road and the penalties for the
violator on the inland waterway. ISee "State now
expects .. .," page 19, November 1989.1
Enforcement of the 'rules of the road' is not
enough. Does no one in Florida care about your
waterways at all? I have never seen such blatant
disregard by boat owners and authorities alike for
the wake damage caused to sea walls. What is the
cost to the owners of these houses on the rivers
and waterways? If a person threw a rock at your
home it would be considered an act of vandalism,
punishable by law. Yet a power boat causing a
wake throws tons and tons of force on the banks
and walls, causing erosion and opening of the
walls and eventual leakage behind with possible
damage to the home and garden.
I have spoken to the Marine Patrol to see if
something could be done to slow up reckless
craft on the Middle River, as each weekend I
spend hours checking warps and fenders trying
to keep my charge, an 86-foot, 104-ton yacht
from breaking loose. The Marine Patrol tell me
there is nothing they can do and that they are
powerless unless it is a Green Zone. How do you
make a Green Zone, I inquired? The information


given was that one bands together with your
neighbors and lobbies the powers that be, but
don't be too hopeful because even if you get one,
the signs might never go up or if they do they
might be in the wrong place.
How can a great nation allow such
recklessness to its country and other peoples'
property? The canal systems of Europe are totally
'No Wake Zones' period. Violators are fined
some $1500 dollars for speeding. Believe me the
rules are enforced and authoritative groups of
marine biologists monitor the canal life ensuring
its preservation. Bank and wall erosion is
negligible. The net result is that no one would
even dream of speeding and people can fish and
children sail in safety. Boating goes on at a
leisurely pace with man and nature at peace with
each other.
The inland waterways are meant for all to
share but in my opinion they are the most
dangerous stretches of water I have ever been on.
Speedboats have their place out at sea where
there is plenty of room for all. Canals are not
racetracks for irresponsible idiots to show off to
captive audiences.
One last point on bank erosion. If you drove
your car along the road damaging the curb on
both sides would you get away with it? That is


exactly what the wakes are doing to the seawalls
of houses and public property. I wonder what the
total cost is in repairing the damage each year in
the state of Florida and as the damage is caused
by a lack of public control why doesn't the state
pick up the bills just as it does for the highways?
How can a minority rule a majority for I am
sure the race course speedboat drivers of the
waterways are a minority. Financial? Well, the
boat industry would sell just as many boats if not
more if the entire waterways were a 'No Wake
Zone,' so it can't be that. Is it that powerboat
owners believe it is their right? Well, it's not. No
one has the right to damage property or restrict
the pleasure or movement of others by being a
persistent nuisance.
'Rules of the Road' will not improve the
situation. The voice of ecology and the manatee
cannot be heard but the voices of humans must.
Do not allow the magnificent achievement of
these canals to be destroyed by the very beings
that built them ... MAN.
Yes, there is a solution ... the entire inland
waterway system must be a 'No Wake Zone.

Residential dock rentals update in Lauderdale


Editor:
Binni Sweeney of the Landings Civic
Association, chairing an ad hoc committee which
included Dennis Nusser, appeared before the Ft.
Lauderdale Council of Civic Associations on
November 14 to discuss the city's previously
proposed ordinance on the use of private docks.
[See "Editor's log," page 3, December 1989,
Waterfront News.]
This ad hoc committee presented its own
ordinance for consideration which was based on
what the city had drafted. Briefly, the committee
proposed changes which would restrict an owner
from being allowed to place his boat at the dock
of a house which he may own but rents to
another. Other modifications included the addition
of sections which stipulate that a visiting vessel
may not dock between the hours of 1 a.m. and 6
p.m. Should a vessel expect to remain overnight,
the occupant of the house must obtain a permit
from the enforcement agent of the city. This
permit may be issued only once a year for a
period not to exceed 14 days.
There were other changes which would
further define the conditions under which a
presumption of guilt would exist and a minor
change was made to Section 11-19 of the Code
relating to advertising signs at docks.
Jeff Cole of Riverside Park asked that the
council members vote to defer action on this
matter until the general memberships of the
various civic associations had a chance to review
these proposals. After much discussion, council
member Max Steingart of Nunni Isles stated that



- Letters -
c/o Waterfront News-

as their decision was only one part of the larger
picture, he felt that they should go ahead and vote
anyway and get it over with. The council then
voted and passed a resolution to endorse the
committee's proposals which will be sent on to
the city commission for their consideration.
There should be a lesson here for all of us.
Despite the fact that many people attended the
meeting and stated that their views had not been
fairly represented, the chair reminded those
people that these matters should be taken up at the
meetings of their own civic associations.
If you pay dues and don't attendthe meetings
or if you don't belong at all, you have the same
problem: you are represented by default but you
really can't complain about bad decisions. For
waterfront property owners residing in
neighborhoods with only a small amount ofl
waterfront as compared to dry lots, there is
another problem which is a lot like taxation
without representation: the needs of the
waterfront residents usually get short shrift as
compared to those of the dry lot owners. What to
do about this? Take the time to join yur civic
association and run for office or a directorship so
you have a voice in what happens in your
neighborhood. Or, band together to form a
waterfront property owners' group in your civic
area and select your own candidates to run for
offices.
What can you do about what's happening
now? You can call the president of your civic
association and ask if he voted to support this
very restrictive proposal. Ask him on what basis
he voted and what group he represented. Tell him
how you and your neighbors feel about his
decision. Let your mayor and commissioners
know that neighborhood wlcerfront issues are
being decided by a handful of people who may
not be allowing appropriate input from you and
others who feel as you do in your area.
Don't let ANYONE deprive you of YOUR

The Waterway Master Plan Committee of the
Marine Advisory Board is planning to hold a two-
day charette relating to all waterway matters
affecting our city. The City Commission has
endorsed the concept of the charette. A spring
date is being planned. Also, commissioners
added five members of the City Planning and
Zoning Board to the Waterway Ma~ier Plan
committee. We feel that the dock usage issue
should be dealt with as part of this charette, Of
course, our opposition disagrees. The dockage
issue, though is but one of twelve sections of the

Ask Big Al


Question-
I have a vibration on my port engine at about
1800 rpm. I've had the shaft checked for runout.
I've had the props changed. The engine was lined
up and one new motor support installed. The
diver said my struts were tight and in line and my
cutlass bearing was good.
I thought I had covered everything, but, I
still have that vibration at about 1800. At low
and high rpms I don't feel it but at that 1800
range I do. The starboard engine runs line at all
speeds but the port has me worried.
Hank


Answer-
You really have done practically everything
to eliminate that vibration. One clue is that the
vibration sets in at a certain rpm, not below or
above. Some engines have a problem called
"harmonic balance." A torn or broken motor
support can be caused by that and the vibration
may not be in the shaft, or prop.
You should also check the key way at shaft
end to check if prop is hitting correctly. A worn
or tapered shaft can cause vibration if prop does
not sit correctly and may have caused the original
problem.
Check the blade for wobble; measure from
the strut.
Al

Q-
I have a turbo diesel boat with twin
Cummings that are only a couple of years old.
She runs swell, only I've seen little specks of
oil on the motors.
I don't use the boat too much. What do I do
to keep the boat in good shape mechanically?
Jim

A-
You have diesels so actually changing your
oil and your oil filter regularly and changing the
filters for your fuel and a good water separate
are all you have to do. Your air screen should be
clean and not blocked.


Don't do any adjustments yourself and you
will be fine. Those little oil spots could be a pin
hole in your seals. The seals will have to be
changed by a good diesel mechanic.
Al

Q-
I have a small boa thial's always tail heavy
until I speed way up. It won't ever ride flat in the
water.
It's an inboard-outboard. Even with the trim
I have this trouble.
Dave
A-
Trim tabs will help. Also, your boat may
have a motor trim that will bring the bow down.
Distribute the weight towards the bow and
when all else fails I've put weight all the way in
the bow to be able to run the boat on an even
keel.

I have a sailboat with a mast problem. Water
leaks down into the cabin past the boot onto the
deck. I've replaced the boot and it still leaks.
Also, the mast seems loose at the deck and at
the base in the hull.
Any suggestions? iilary
A-
I wouldn't waste time but go to a yard that
steps masts. I think the wedges that hold the mast
tight and in line are loose or gone and the
excessive play in the mast at the boot is causing
the leak.
Also the base of the mast should be secure.
Any good yard that handles sailboats and rigging
will trim and repair your mast problem. Al

no fee. The ongoing MET began December 9,
1989.

mutton snapper, a 24-pound dolphin and 2
sailfish releases.
Top VIP Sponsor: Harry Vernon, fishing
with Capt. Frank Garisto aboard the Quido,

MET Board of Directors, offered the position to
Susan.

Elation, tragedy mark second leg of Whitbread Race


by Randy Kanhic
-Record-setting performances and tragedy
marked the second, and longest, leg of the
Whitbread Round the World Race for the
Beefeater Trophy from Punta del Este Uruguay,
to Fremantle, Australia which concluded today
with 15 days separating the arrival of the first and
the last of the 23 yachts from 13 nations.
\ La Poste of France arrived in Fremantle on
December 8, covering the arduous 7,650-mile leg
in 40 days while Steinlager 2 of New Zealand, an
84' maxi skippered by Peter Blake, finished first
on November 24 winning the Beefeater Trophy
for Class A (IOR Rating 70.0-62.5). The yacht
also won line honors for the first leg from
Southampton, England to Punta del Este.
Anthony Phillips, 36, of Great Britain, a
crewmember on Creighton's Naturally, was
knocked overboard on November 12. He was
dead when recovered a half hour later. His death
was the first in the Whitbread Race since three
sailors drowned in the first edition in 1973. At
his parents' request, he was buried at sea the
following day.
Bart van den Dwey also went overboard at
the same time but was recovered safely. One
unidentified sailor on Maiden of Britain and Jordi
Domenech on Fortuna of Spain were also
knocked overboard during the leg and were
rescued.
The finish of the leg was one of the most
exciting in race history with Fisher & Paykel of
New Zealand, the leader for most of the leg,
Fortuna, Martela O.F. of Finland, Rothmans of
England and Steinlager 2, all in the lead at various
times between November 20-24. Steinlager 2
finished one hour and 33 minutes ahead of
Rothmans, skippered by Lawrie Smith, which
arrived only 28 seconds ahead of Merit of
Switzerland, led by Pierre Fehlmann, who
skippered UBS Switzerland to victory in the
1985-86 Whitbread Race.
Fortuna set a new noon-to-noon race
mileage record of 377 nautical miles between


November 8-9. The previous record of 374 miles
was set by UBS Switzerland in the last race.
Equity & Law of The Netherlands, a 63'
fractional sloop skippered by Dirk Nauta, won
the uncontested Class C (IOR Rating 54.99-
47.5) Beefeater Trophy, on November 29.
Maiden, the first all-female entry in race history
with 27-year-old former dancer Tracy Edwards at
the helm, won the Division D (IOR Rating 47.49-
40.0) Beefeater Trophy over four rivals when the
58' fractional sloop sailed into Fremantle last
Sunday, December 3. With Integrity of Great
Britain, a 72' masthead sloop skippered by


photo by Etienne Girroire, aboard ,rhe ar'


Andrew Coghill, won the Cruiser Class Beefeater
Trophy upon its arrival last Tuesday, December
5.
A Beefeater Trophy is being awarded to the
fastest-finishing boat in each of four divisions,

Elation, tragedy mark second leg of Whitbread


Race


(A, C, D and Cruiser) at the end of each leg.
There are no entries in Division B (IOR Rating
62.49-55.0). At the end of the race, a Whitbread
Trophy will be presented to the top boats in each
division according to corrected (handicapped)
time.
The high waves and winds, reaching up to 50
mph, caused numerous other injuries and
damage. Etienne Giroire on The Card, formerly
of France and currently based out of Ft.
Lauderdale, and Rafael Tibau of Fortuna,
suffered a broken arm and leg, respectively.
Some of the boat damage reported was on The
Card, broken spinnaker pole end and head foil;
Gatorade of Italy, broken main boom and ripped
mainsail; Equity & Law, broken spinnaker boom;
Creighton's Naturally, broken mast fitting;
British Satquote Defender, broken forestay,
headfoil and boom; Martela O.F., broken main
boom and starboard steering pedestal.
Fisher & Paykel claimed the first sighting of
an iceberg on November 5, while The Card
reported the following day that a whale came too
close for comfort. Merit reported on November 6
that fog was so severe that visibility was only
two or three boat lengths ahead.
The boats began the third and shortest leg to
Auckland, New Zealand, 3,434 nautical miles, on
December 23. The race will reach U.S. shores for
the first time when the yachts race from Punta del
Este, Uruguay to Ft. Lauderdale in March and
April. Pier 66 Resort & Marina will berth most of
the yachts and serve as race headquarters.
Local heros
Americans participating in the race include
Kim Sanders-Fisher of Ft. Lauderdale onWith
Integrity ; Bill Pearson of Monroe, Ct., Eric
Soper of Rowayton, Ct., and Arthur Radford of
San Diego on NCB Ireland; Dawn Riley of
Detroit on Maiden; Chicago-native Skip Novak,

Biewenga of Newport, R.I. on The Card, Rick
Jakaus of Boston and Fridolf Hanson of
Greenwich, Ct., on Martela O.F.; John Jourdane
of Long Beach, Ca., on Fisher & Paykel; and
Jim Lutz of Los Angeles on Liverpool Enterprise.

A local sailor, Kim Sanders-Fisher, was
cited by her captain for her heroic effort in the
second leg. With Integrity's skipper Andy
Coghill reported:
"In the second week we blew out our first
mainsail and then during the fourth week we
blew out our second one which was the one in
the best condition. So without a sewing machine
on board Kim Sanders-Fisher spent two days
handsewing the sails with help from other crew
members." Her efforts helped With Integrity

One of the truisms we had been taught to
accept was that "a straight line is the shortest
distance between two points." Later, as
navigators, we found that a curved line
connecting two points on a mercator chart was
shorter in distance than a direct line between these
positions.
The curved line is part of a great circle on the
earth's surface whose plane passes through the

center of the earth, while the straight line (called a
rhumb line) is greater in distance; it is preferred
by navigators since it crosses all meridians at the
same angle that provides a convenient heading.
Sailing a great circle requires constant course
changes.
The following illustration shows how a
vessel sailing between Ft. Lauderdale and
England (Scilly Isles) will save 159 miles by
following a great circle route rather than a rhumb
line.

Although the legs of a great circle are
somewhat difficult to calculate a celestial
navigator can substitute the destination's latitude
for declination and the difference in longitude for
LHA to enter the HO 229 reduction tables. For
each leg's true course use the azimuth (Z), for
distance subtract the HC from 90 degrees.

Power Boats


Marks has clean sweep of
by Bob Black

KEY WEST, Florida Keys Charles Marks,
of Potomac, Maryland, drove the 46-foot Gentry
Turbo Eagle to two straight victories November
15 and 18 to capture the Superboat crown at the
Key West "Battle of the Seas" Professional
Offshore Power Boat Race.
Marks, the 1989 Superboat national offshore
champion noted his speed average of 81.10 mph
was 11.5 mph slower on Saturday (Nov. 18)
than during the first of the two-race series on
Wednesday (Nov. 15).
"Sure we slowed down because of the
weather," Marks, a data processing executive
said. "I'm not a macho man and anyone who
says they liked it out there today (winds 20 mph
and seas up to six feet) needs to have his head
examined."
But even if the conditions were a bit rough,
Marks and throttleman John Connor led from
start to finish in the 125-mile final race, which
provided nearly double points as the 90-mile race
team won earlier in the week.
Second place in Superboat was John Gehret


superboat class at Key West
of Wayne, PA, driver of INXS and third was
Italian Fabio Buzzi in Ricci..
Actor Don Johnson, in superboat Team USA
had mechanical difficulties on both days and
finished seventh in his class.
Nuri Sabunco, of Rochester, NY, won the
Pro-Open Class in Chairman of the Board and
Yoshiro Kitami, of Honolulu, HI, won the Pro-
U.I.M. II in Super Hero.
John Rebban, of Warren, Ohio, drove Black
Thunder to second place in Open, while Miami's
Ugo Columbo was third in Hawk Marine Power.
In U.I.M. II, Ed Ryan of Bay Shore, NY,
placed second overall in Phoenix, while Allan
Dunteman, of Oak Brook, IL, was third.
The two-race series attracted some 60 boats
that were divided into three professional and three
semi-professional divisions, with the pro-classes
running longer courses following semi-pro action
earlier.
Some 25,000 offshore fans, according to race
chairman John Carbonell, showed up to watch
the pro boats complete nine laps around the race
course.

Habitat Waterfront News January 1990 15


by Capt. Frank Papy
Spawned in the Caribbean, old Hugo came at
us in the Carolinas breathing fire and brimstone.
Usually, I don't care for all the negativity of the
TV news media but this time they really did do
their job well! The vivid pictures of the
devastation in Hugo's track had folks in the low
country stunned. What to do? Stay and hold your
ground, batten the hatches down, or grab what
you could and head for high ground inland. I
certainly was on the horns of a dilemma. My wife
and I and my 13-year-old daughter live on a 26-
acre island eight miles from the ocean and 48
miles south of Charleston.
My mother had saved some old hurricane
maps so we got them out to plot the storm and, in
studying some of the past hurricanes I thought I
recognized a pattern. I got my large scale chart of
the South Atlantic from the boat and sure enough,
it seems that when the storm crosses the warm
water of the Gulfstream it has the effect of
increasing the northerly motion of the storm.
Hurricanes that were forecast to hit Jacksonville
hit Savannah, ones headed for Savannah hit
Charleston, and so on up the coast. Being a


Hugo in Carolina

hardheaded old skipper, with the advisory saying
Hugo was headed for Savannah we decided we
would secure the boat and the house and head for
Savannah to ride it out.
The roads were jammed but we managed to
stop for rum and Chinese food. If you are going
to get blown away you might as well be
pleasantly oiled and have a full stomach. I must
say it didn't look good! Hugo was intensifying
and we were scared for awhile but sure enough,
about 10:30 p.m. old Hugo started turning to the
north. Good for us but bad for Charleston and
the northern counties.
The next day we headed back to the island.
We were lucky, only minor damage trees
down, etc. We stopped along the road to talk to
some National Guard officers who had just come
from the Charleston area. They said it looked like
a war zone sailboats stacked like cordwood,
whole marinas swept away and a big highway
bridge blown off its turntable.
Before Hugo left the Carolinas there were 21
dead in its wake. That's the worst part you can
replace material things but life you can't. You
don't think about the alligators and snakes having


to be shot or the thousands of beautiful birds
smashed in the ferocious winds. But the
Godfearing reverent human element will survive.
The teamwork was amazing. You would hear
people saying, "My house is not damaged, I'll
help you fix your boat." Or "my boat is OK, let
us help you with your house."
There is a story about a group of tired storm-
tossed residents who were permitted back on
their island to survey the damage and salvage
what they could. While doing this they
discovered a battered but still alive dolphin in the
lady's living room in a pool of water on the floor.
Even with all their worries and troubles they took
the time to get blankets and carry the heavy
porpoise down to the beach and into the sea to set
it free. If this is an example of the Carolina spirit,
I think even with the massive destruction that is
evident, they will be back in ship-shape order
pretty soon.

Frank M. Papy, charter captain and author of
Cruising Guide to Florida Keys, lives on Fox
Island, South Carolina, near Hilton Head. He is a
frequent writer in the Waterfront News.


Hugo in Puerto Rico


by Mike Pauley

Twas the night before Hugo,
and all about the piers,
boaters were milling, as if
to assauge their fears .."

The day before Hugo arrived,. I isited the
Fajardo marinas, watching the activities of the
worried and frightened mariners. Puerto Rico had
bnot felt a "real" hurricane since Santa Clara, some
30 odd years ago and most of the boat owners are
relatively new to the sport of yachting and have
never experienced the forces of a full-blown
"humcaie. i had.
I tied my little 27 foot sailboat with every line
I could find (a total of 22 lines reached from dock
"to deck) and then went to our home in the
mountains above San Juan. Hurricane Hugo
came with a fury, a vengeance, and struck the
heart of the marine recreational industry, Fajardo,
and continued on into San Juan, taking all in it
path. Our home, surrounded by trees, looked as
if it had been bombed! Listening to reports over
our battery-operated radio, we could only
speculate on the damage suffered by fellow
mariners down on the coast.
Desperate to see friends and check on our
own little craft, and that of a friend who had
passed the storm with us instead of staying on
board, (highly recommended to abandon ship
when winds are over 100 mph!), we carefully
drove down tree-filled roads toward Palmas del
Mar on the southeastern tip of Puerto Rico. As
good fate would have it, our friends' boat at
Palmas del Mar was not severely damaged and
the marina itself was mostly intact! Continuing
along the coastline towards Fajardo we could see
actually where the hurricane came ashore: Rosy
Roads, the U.S. Naval station. We continued to
follow its path.
The rest of the trip was incredible; to see the
power, the force a hurricane can create, is
awesome! The unbelievable moving of objects
you would never expect to be moved- in

positions which your imagination could never
create; boats on top of each other, inside each
other, wrapped around each other, and
themselves! Amazing! My camera clicked often
as we traveled the battlefield, and I still study the
pictures to try and grasp what really happened!
I know one thing,,., will never forget the
lessons learned during.tbe.afternath 'of Hugo, a
real training ground for the next hurricane I must
experience. And I will if I stay m the Caribbean,
and I will feel better prepared after having
survived Hugo to face another one. My
respect is TOTAL for hurricane forces; the wind,
the tides, the unpredictable way it can behave.
Run, if you can, from a hurricane. Do not stay on
your boat. There is no safe harbor. Run.. I know
some will disagree with my cowardly attitude,
and I wish them fair winds and good luck, but
this sailor will scramble for the hills when the
forecast calls for 100 plus winds during any
hurricane watch.
By the way, our 27-footer was a survivor!

Times based in San Juan and is a former
resident/boater of Fort Lauderdale.

18 Waterfront News January 1990 Diving


by Bryan Brooks
Many of the new residents who move here
daily are beginning to discover that their new
home has a rich and varied history. Fort
Lauderdale's Indian history, archaeologists tell
us, goes back thousands of years.
Fort Lauderdale was part of the seven year,
2nd Seminole Indian War that started in 1836.
One of the incendiary reasons for the war was the
Cooley massacre, that occurred where the
southwest Seventh Avenue boat ramp is now.
We have had hurricanes, floods, and
mobsters who flourished here during the 1930's
and 40's. I can remember, as a young child,
seeing a slot machine getting a good workout, in
open view, inside the old American Legion Hall.
The Kefauver Hearings held here around 1950
disposed of the Sheriff and made the bad guys at
least pretend to go underground.
Fort Lauderdale also had the dubious honor
of hosting the last federal hanging. It involved a
murder on the high seas of a Coast Guardsman
during prohibition. That can be equated with
what is going on today with our flourishing drug
trade. The only change is the product being
shipped in.
But underwater there is an interesting history
too. The shipwreck of the Gil Bias, which played
a big part of the Cooley Massacre, is just north of
the Hillsboro Inlet and has been well
documented and worked by the Broward County
Underwater Archaeological Association.
But the increasing amount of divers who
spend their weekends off our coast underwater
might be interested to know that other underwater
finds still occur here.
Recently while diving off the coast, my
diving partner, Barry Steinlage, found what he
feels is the remainder of a hedgehog depth
charge. Luckily we had a camera and
photographed it. It was overgrown with coral and
looked just like any other piece of coral. Barry,
on looking closer, showed me the fins on the rear
of the spiral. Not knowing for sure if it was inert,
we just looked at it and left.
Before that, on the wreck of the Copenhagen,
located just off Sea Ranch Lakes, Barry had
found tracers from a .50- caliber machinegun.
Once, I found the remains of a .50-caliber
shell on the same wreck. Stories circulate that
Navy planes from what is now the Fort
Lauderdale, Hollywood International Airport,
used the Copenhagen as a practice target. Because
there was no human life, no condos, and no
traffic there at that time, it's probably true.
John Noyes, a pioneer Fort Lauderdale diver,


who started a marine business supplying public
aquariums with tropical fish, told me once that he
used to find some of those practice bombs all the
time. At one time he related that when finding the
bombs, he was given a small reward for turning
it over to the Navy.
Captain Bill Cole from the Pro Diver II in
Bahia Mar, found what he thought looked like a
bomb. Instantly the Navy was at his doorstep
demanding said bomb, unknown if it was
practice or real. However, Captain Bill related
that when the Navy arrived to take possession of
it, they threw it into the back of a pickup truck
and left.
Three years ago, off Cuda Reef, I was
running an Advanced Open Water class. We were
in 30 feet of water. I had hidden a weight belt
with about 20 pounds of weight on it. The
students' job was to run a circle pattern and
recover the weight belt. To my surprise they
innocently came back with a long, slender, silver
cylinder with a small parachute attached to it.
In examining the device underwater, we
could see some sort of code on it. Then, making
the hair on the back of my neck stand up, we
found a timing device on one end of the damn
thing. Exit stage left. Was it a bomb? Unlikely.
But our imagination was running wild. What
would James Bond do?
The Navy, on being notified, took prompt
possession of the whatever it was. No
explanation, and no answers to our dumb civilian
questions. Just goodby and off into a cloud of
military mystery.
The students who found the cylinder were
two women who only wanted to know if they
passed the search and recovery part of their
advanced course. What could I tell them?
Certainly not that they flunked; hell, they found
something. The weight belt is probably still out
there somewhere.
The Naval Surface Warfare Center in Fort
Lauderdale was recently contacted. The
gentleman talking to me asked not to be quoted
directly, but suggested that if anyone finds a
device that it promptly be turned over to the
sheriffs bomb squad. They advised the chances
are 99 per cent that the device is inert. This writer
heartily endorses this course of action.
Veteran diver John McLaughlin told me that
about twenty years ago he found a German
torpedo near the sea buoy. That story interested

Coast Guard cutter becomes new reef


by Bryui Brotok.
The former Coast Guard cutter, the 95-foot
Cape Gull, found its final resting place recently a
few thousand feet east of Oakland Park
Boulevard in 70 feet of water. The Broward
Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad, with a few well-
placed charges, sent the ship below to its new
destiny, a home for sea life and friend to visiting
SCUBA divers from all over the world.
The ship was built in 1953. Among its many
duties, the cutter served as an interceptor of drug
boats off the Florida coast. It was manned by one
officer and thirteen enlisted men.
But perhaps the ship's new name and
destination will serve an even better purpose. The
ship was renamed the Robert Edmister, after a
kindly, well-known local diver.
Bob Edmister had been very instrumental in
the sinking of one of the best known local
wrecks, a tugboat named the Jay Scutti. Local
businessman Dale Scutti, a non-diver, had
bought the tugboat for the county to be sunk off
Fort Lauderdale, and named for his son who had
passed away in a tragic auto accident in New
York. Dale Scutti's son had been an avid diver,
so he felt having a wreck for divers with his
son's name would make a lasting, worthwhile
memorial. The go-between who helped make the
whole thing work was Dale Scutti's close friend,
Bob Edmister.
To many of us in the diving community who
were lucky enough to be around him, Bob was a
friend and cheerful person.
Bob's latest project, one that was still in the
blueprint stage, was to try to raise money for
Ocean Watch Foundation, a local environmental
group. Bob wanted to assist them in getting
mooring buoys placed over the area's favorite
diving spots. The buoys would be there for dive
boats to tie off to instead of dropping anchors on
to the precious, fragile reefs below. Ironically,
his wife Millie asked that contributions to Bob's
memory be sent to Ocean Watch Foundation. Her
wish came true and much needed funds were sent
to a worthwhile cause.
In June, Bob Edmister was able to get a
beautiful, bronze plaque made to be placed onto
the Jay Scutti. Bob dove with the heavy plaque in
six foot seas, and assisted a welder to place it
onto the tugboat. The plaque was a tribute to Dale
Scutti's son, for whom the tugboat was renamed.
Those of us who helped Bob on that windy,

wild, June day, never knew what Bob Edmister
knew: that he was a dying man. Bob kept it to
himself and used all his energy to get the job
done, while the rest of us complained about the
weather.
Bob was busy to the very end, helping to
complete his friend Dale Scutti's marine projects.
After he passed away, Dale Scutti bought the
Coast Guard cutter, Cape Gull, at a Federal
auction, and gave it to the county to be sunk near
his son's boat.
As usual, the dynamic dive club, South
Florida Divers, through their tireless worker
Wayne Harland, assisted Steve Somerville's
Broward County Erosion Prevention Unit to get
the boat ready for sinking.
In death, Bob's memory will go on, both
through his many deeds and now with the Coast
Guard wreck named after him. For those of us
who will dive the new wreck, and knew Bob
Edmister, that dive will always be a visit to a dear
friend.
The new wreck, appropriately enough, was
placed 1000 yards south of the wreck Jay Scutti.

NAVCON, INC.

NAVIGATION CONCEPTS
Navcon, Inc. is a group of dedicated professionals with one goal in mind:
To provide the marine community with an efficient, cost competitive, repair
service. Although we are a new business, we are not new to the business
with over 20 years of continuous service to the marine community.

SERVICES
EWATERMAKERS: Whether it's just a checkup and service or a major
overhaul, there is, not a watermaker made that we can't fix. (We can
also custom design a system for your vessel)
*ELECTRICAL / MECHANICAL GENERAL REPAIR and Maintenance:
From the masthead to the keel or from the bridge to the bilge, US or
European systems, we have the technical know-how to keep these
systems operational.
*BRIGHTWORK: Why pay more for less? We can strip and refinish your
brightwork in a timely fashion, leave the vessel clean, and make your
rails mirror-like. Contract or hourly rates at $20.00 per hour.
NAIR CONDITIONING SERVICE AND REPAIR: Chill water systems,
condensor systems or refrigeration systems.
*MONTHLY SERVICE PACKAGE: Tailored to meet your needs, we can
wash down, check the engine and start it weekly, check the batteries,
check the bilges, and assure lines and fenders are adjusted properly, oil
changes... so... when you want to use your vessel, you turn the key and
go. Period. All this for $150.00 to $175.00 per month depending on the
size of your boat.
We do it right, on schedule and without problems.
With a competitive labor rate of $20.00 per hour
on most work, we're hard to beat!
