1990 Miami International

Sailboat Show


MIAMI BEACH- Everything a sailor needs,
from boats to engines and from rigging to sails,
are at the sailor's Eden the 1990 Miami
International Sailboat Show.
The South's largest all-sail, in-water show,
which will be held February 17-21 at the Miami
Beach Marina, runs simultaneously and in
conjunction with the nation's largest boat show,
the Miami International Boat Show. This year's
sailing extravaganza will feature sloops,
pilothouse cruisers, daysailers, tenders, yachts,
catamarans and more. But that's not all. The
show will also offer visitors the opportunity to
interact with the world's first computer-
controlled sailboard simulator. The $20,000
Force 4 replicates wind and wave action so
realistically that it challenges both experts and
beginners. Expert instructors will be on hand to
teach novices how to ride the waves without ever
getting wet. Exciting demonstrations will also
take place throughout the day.
The real stars of the show, however, are the
sailboats. The 38-footer is equipped with an all-
teak interior; several hanging lockers, an L-
shaped galley, two enclosed heads and two
staterooms. She can accommodate two couples
within her 12-foot, 8-inch beam.
A few slips away is a sloop-rigged cruiser
which is optional on other boats. She is complete
down to her anchor windlass, cockpit shower
and Dutchman system.
Also to have a Miami premiere is a new 38-
foot pilothouse sailboat featuring virtually every
accessory possible: a washer/dryer, -a
dishwasher, reverse cycle air conditioner/heater,
freezer, refrigerator, water-making system,
icemaker and workshop area. The 38 can be
designed with a galley up or galley down


configuration and is also equipped with one
enclosed head and a separate shower.
Check out the 35-foot centerboard sloop with
one large stateroom, quarter berths aft, a head
and galley. Her shoal draft draws in as little as
two feet of water with the rudder up. Also on
display will be a 28-foot weekender/daysailer.
Designed by Carl Schumacher, this sloop-rigged
boat features a V-berth, head and an 8-foot beam.
The Miami International Sailboat Show will
also feature displays and exhibits from many
manufacturers.
The sailboat show means more than just
sailboats, however. Visitors can find a host of
accessories, auxiliary engines, electronics, sails,
sailing classes, take-home nautical gifts and
more.
Sailors searching for rigging and sails can
find the perfect genoa or mainsail at the show.
Sailmakers and cordage concerns are just a
few of the manufacturers exhibiting this year.
Rookie sailors at the show can actually learn
to sail, compliments of the American Sailing
Association and the National Marine
Manufacturers Association.
Seminars and actual on-the-water instruction
will be given throughout the show to introduce
newcomers to the fundamentals of sailing.
Don't forget that the sailboat show means one-
stop shopping, with on-the-spot financing
available from several marine lenders.
Continuous shuttle bus service will link the
show with all the other show sites and "Park And
Ride" on Watson Island.
The Miami International Sailboat Show and
Miami International Boat Show are owned and
produced by the National Marine Manufacturers
Association.

Crackdown on plastic pollution: The
Department of Transportation recently announced
an "interim final" rule prohibiting the dumping of
plastics at sea. The regulation applies to U.S. flag
vessels anywhere in the world, and foreign flag
vessels in U.S. waters out to the 200-mile limit.
The legislation came in response to environmental
concern over the plight of birds, fish and other
sea animals that become tangled in, or mistakenly
ingest, plastic trash. Dumping of other ship-
generated garbage at sea is also restricted by the
rule and U.S. ports and terminals, including
recreational marinas, are required to provide
adequate facilities for receiving garbage.
Violation of the new rule carries a civil penalty of
up to $25,000, and criminal penalties of up to
$50,000 and five years in jail. For more
information, write the Center for Environmental
Education, 1725 DeSales Street, N.W., Suite
500, Washington, D.C. 20036.

steps owners can take to deter thieves, at little or
no cost The video, developed by the Connecticut
and Rhode Island Marine Trade Associations and
funded by the National Marine Manufacturers
Association, delivers such practical tips as

4 Waterfront News February 1990 Letters


Restore safety and sanity to our waterways


Editor:
I agree with Captain Robinson [see Letters,
"Rules of the Road .," page 4, Waterfront
News, January 1990] that something must be
done to restore safety and sanity to our beautiful
Florida waterways. Maybe, as Mr. Robinson
suggests, the entire inland waterway system
should be a No Wake Zone. Certainly that is a
good idea for Dade, Broward and Palm Beach
Counties.
In my twenty-two years of experience at sea
as a licensed Marine Engineer I have never feared
more for my life than right here on inland
waterways. Any kind of basic common sense,
seamanship or regard for others is lacking by the
majority of boaters!
On a recent night voyage from Ft. Lauderdale


up the ICW on my 36-foot trawler, Wand'rin, I
encountered several vessels running without
lights. At another point near Deerfield Beach a
Cigarette boat passed down my port side in
excess of fifty knots. I could have jumped on his
deck!
When I have suggested over Channel 16 to
reduce wake or turn on running lights I hear
curses in response. We really have a situation
here totally out of control. People realize they can
do anything at the helm and get away with it.
That's called anarchy and is what we now see on
Florida waterways.

Don Doombos
Chief Engineer, USCG
Delray Beach


Editor:
As we end 1989 and embark upon a new
decade, we want to take this opportunity to
express the sincere appreciation of the Florida
Department of Transportation for the fine efforts
expended by Waterfront News to keep the public
informed about the 1-95 Expansion Project in
South Florida.
Because the reconstruction of 1-95 from Boca
Raton to Miami is the largest project of its type in
Florida's history, we knew in advance that the
media would play a prime role in keeping the


millions of residents and visitors informed as the
road and bridge work in the three counties
proceeded. You proved us right, and we thank
you for your publication's and your staffs
commitment to such a high standard of public
service.
We look forward to your publication's
continued assistance and to working with you in
1990.

Combat merchant mariners take note


Editor:
Forty four years after World War II, the
merchant seamen who carried war supplies to the
armed forces through hazardous submarine
infested waters, and also manned the ship's guns,
were finally granted Veterans' Status by the
Department of Defense.
It is interesting to note that their death rate
was similar to that of the United States Marine
Corps.
The problem at this time is: there is no list of
surviving seafarers anywhere.

Ask the Old Boat Carpenter
Question:
My boat has hatches of teak with plexiglas for
light below. The comers have miter joints that
leak. I have done and tried all sorts of remedies
and nothing seems to work.
How can I fix this?
Answer:
You really have a problem along with a lot of
owners of boats built in the seventies. Miter
joints were intended for picture frames and other
non-stress applications where weather, stress and
moisture do not cause the wood to move from
shrinking and swelling. They should never be
used on a boat in the way you describe. As the
wood shrinks and swells, the outside comer gets
tighter and the inside comer opens up, a perfect
place for water to enter and rot to start.
The joints on wood hatches should have lap
or a form of dovetail, then swelling will make the
joint tighter. I'm sorry I can't give you a better
answer to the problem you have. If someone else
has an answer, I would like to hear it.

Q:
I hit the nice teak rail on a piling coming into
the dock and made what looks like a splintered
bruise spot in the teak. I tried to sand it out and
revarnish it, but it still stands out. Also, the teak
is a different color where I sanded it. Do I have
to have that section of rail replaced?
A:
No. Unless the rail is split all the way
through, I would have a Dutchman, which is a
small piece of matching wood, in this case teak,
carefully fitted into a cavity carved out of the rail.
It is glued with two part epoxy and faired
carefully. It will be a different color until it has
weathered for some time. Often after a few
months it is hard to find the repair.
At least eight coats of marine varnish with
ultra violet screening should be applied.
Q:
My wood hatches have stains on the
underside. Can they be sanded out and
revamished?
A:
A stain on wood under varnish almost always
means a leak and you must find the leak and fix it
first. Take a careful look at the top and edges for
a hairline or a pinhole leak. When you have
refinished the top, you probably will find that the
leak on the bottom will be taken care of.
After you have water-tested the leak and you
are sure it is fixed refinishing is in order on the
underside. This is the time to replace rotten wood
and veneer.

Ask Big Al


Question:
I have a 18-foot boat with an
inboard/outboard drive which runs great. I've
brought it down here from up north and we are
having a ball with it.
I went for fuel the other day and after fueling
up, started the engine and it would not go
forward or into reverse. The dock boy called
over a mechanic and after checking the throttle he
said it was in the outdrive and he would have to
haul the boat and work in the outdrive.
I'm a little bothered by this as that can be
expensive. Have I been taken or could this
happen so suddenly?
Don
Answer:
I don't want to criticize the mechanic, but,
any honest and competent mechanic-will first
check the throttle linkage and the rear cable
adjustments before he pulls the lower unit for
shifting work. It may be a loose or bent arm that
has to be tightened or it could be a broken cable
leading to the I/O drive.
I would get an estimate of the work to be
done and if work is done see the parts that were
bad and had to be replaced.
Al
Q:
I have a 1969 Chris-Craft with a six-cylinder
engine (in line six) that has developed a leak at
the rear of the exhaust manifold. This is hard to
see as it is under the exhaust outlet.
There is a sort of plug with a square hex unit.
It seems to leak around this plug or large nut. I
don't know about finding another manifold as the
boat is 20 years old. Runs good and it is a solid
boat. What can I do to stop that leak?
Carl

A:
With care I would remove this manifold. Use
a lot of "liquid wrench" and try not to destroy the
gaskets or studs as you may need them as


templates to get new ones. Once the manifold is
off, you can easily see where the leak is.
Sometimes a new plug can be installed. If
there is a crack, it can be welded or brazed by a
good welder. If there is a lock nut on the
manifold to hold the cleanout plug, replace it. I
would first see if the plug can be tightened or
removed and resealed before I remove the
manifold.
Al
Q:
I was replacing all the wires and plugs on my
engine when the phone rang. When I got back I
was all mixed up on rotation and wires, etc.
What's an easy way to start again?
Mixed Up
A:
Hey, it can happen! Most manifolds have the
rotation marked and most manuals have it stated
under timing, or you can get your thumb over the
sparkplug hole and when compression blows out
as you turn over the engine the rotor in the
distributor will point to the cap hole for that wire.
It's easier if you can pinpoint number one
cylinder.
If you are still confused, see me Saturday
mornings at the Ft. Lauderdale Coast Guard
Auxiliary Base on Seabreeze.
Al
Q:
I have an older Evinrude 2-cylinder motor
that runs erratically. It runs swell then misses
then runs for awhile, then misses again. New
plugs and wires were installed and that didn't
help much. Use 50-to-one fuel and the plugs are
dry.
What should I look for?
Herman
A:
I would take off the flywheel and check the
points and condenser. Burnt points, points out of
adjustment, a bad condenser will cause the


condition you describe. It is not a difficult job
and you can tap off the flywheel if you don't have
a puller.
Don't lose the keyway and don't burr the
threads on the shaft getting the flywheel off. Put
a little lube on the rubbing block of the points and
clean well under the flywheel.

Teens assist Ocean Watch in preserving buoys


The ten new mooring buoys at Barracuda
Reef on the Broward County coast are getting
plenty of use as divers hook up to the markers
identifying choice dive locations off John U.
Lloyd State Park. And thanks to the Florida
Ocean Sciences Institute (FOSI) in Ft.
Lauderdale, they are being well maintained and
kept free of algae.
FOSI, an educational program for high
school students, has agreed to provide
maintenance to the buoys placed on the reef just
south of Port Everglades. Ross Henderson, a
FOSI instructor, said he takes from one to five
students out in a boat to inspect the buoys and
make necessary repairs. They visit the site at least
once a month, and more often if needed.


"We take care of the buoys, clean them and
keep up the maintenance on them," Henderson
said. "If one gets run over or a line cut, we
replace them."
FOSI is celebrating its 20th anniversary as an
alternative to jail for juveniles, Henderson said.
Students have been assigned to FOSI by a judge,
in lieu of jail, and are required to attend regular
academic classes and must advance two grade
levels before leaving the program. They must
also perform a required number of community
service hours while at FOSI, and maintenance of
the buoys is an excellent way to gain dive
experience and work off a portion of this
requirement.
"Our goal is to take the so-called worst kid

and put him in the least restrictive environment,
give him an education and train him through the
marine world," Henderson says. "We believe we
can do all these things in six months."
Students who are not certified when they
enter the program can become certified SCUBA
divers by the end of the program. FOSI has an 85
percent success rate, and often introduces the
kids to job possibilities in the marine industry.

Nautical exhibit at historical museum


"Ships and the Sea," a special exhibit
sponsored by the Broward County Historical
Commission, opened in November in the
Commission's L. Clayton Nance Historical
Building, 100 South New River Drive, Ft.
Lauderdale, just northwest of the county
courthouse on the south bank of New River.
"This exhibit highlights the importance of
nautical transportation and commerce in Broward


County's history from the days of the Spanish
explorers to today's freighters and cruise ships,
and will feature ship equipment and models,
navigational instruments, shipwreck artifacts,
maps and illustrations," said Rodney Dillion of
the Commission. "Of particular note is a
collection of over fifty sextants, a collection of
astro, gyro, and magnetic ship compasses, and a
display of Columbus' voyages featuring models


of astrolabes and quadrants, and a bronze keel
bolt from the Santa Maria."
This exhibit of interest and educational value
to adults and children alike will be on display
through March 2. Hours are from 8:00 a.m. to
4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and
admission-is free. Parking is available in the
courthouse lot. Call 765-4670 for further
information.


Environmentally sensitive Pine Island Ridge site


acquired by state and county


by Larry Lietzke
The Broward County Board of County
Commissioners late last year announced the joint
purchase, by the State of Florida and Broward
County, of approximately 90 acres of
environmentally sensitive land in the portion of
the Pine Island Ridge located immediately to the
north of the County's Tree Tops Park in Davie.
This purchase, along with Tree Tops Park's 257


acres, and another 14 acres recently acquired thru
park impact fees received'by the County and the
Town of Davie, will create a continuous parcel of
361 acres in the area.
The site was purchased from Sea Ranch
Properties (Forest Ridge Development Ltd.) at a
shared cost of 6.5 million dollars. This historical,
forested portion of the Pine Island Ridge,
consisting of oak hammocks interspersed with


slash pines, also contains at least-12 recorded
archaeological sites and the highest elevation in
the county. It was one of the 15 sites approved by
Broward voters on March 14, 1989 for
acquisition and enhancement through a $75
million issue.
The County is preparing a joint State/County
Management Plan for Pine Island Ridge which
will preserve the sensitive site.

Snorkeling reef in the works for John U. Lloyd Park


by Bryan Brooks
Due to a gift of some 300 tons of limestone
boulders from the city of Hollywood, a new
artificial reef should soon become a reality in the
shallow waters off John U. Lloyd State Park.
Lou Fisher, a marine biologist, from the
Broward County Environmental Quality Control
Unit/Erosion Prevention, said that the boulders
had been stored in West Lake to be used as waste
water holding material.
The boulders should be put in place sometime
this spring in about twelve feet of water. The area
will be permanently marked for boats. Fisher
said that there will be at least six feet of clearance
at mean low water from the boulders to the
surface. The distance from shore to the new
artificial reef will be no more than 100 yards.
After being dropped, the boulders will
become home for all forms of small marine life,
and will ultimately attract fish. The shallow depth
and sea life will attract the snorkelers from shore.
The Fort Lauderdale area really doesn't have
a regular snorkeling reef for non-divers. Our
three reef tracts are generally too far from shore
and too deep to be of any value, tourism-wise,
for the inexperienced. This has led to many
people traveling down to Key Largo.
Fisher stated that the' artificial reef was the
outcome of an agreement between the County's
Erosion Prevention office, and a private
environmental group, the American Littoral

Society. The dispute started last year when the
County was in the process of renourishing the
fast disappearing beach off John U. Lloyd State
Park.
Beach renourishment has always been a sore
point to environmentalists. They see the dredging
to renourish the beaches as a death blow to the
reef life that lies between the dredge, sucking up
sand from the deeper borrow area, and the beach.
Local government sees the disappearing beaches
as a serious blow to the tourist economy.
When the dredge is scooping up sand
offshore, the transporting process to the beach
causes a fine silt to settle on the offshore reef life.
This silt covering, environmentalists say, cuts
off the sun or photo synthesis necessary for reef
life. The newly buried reef, they maintain, then
dies.
Conflicting arguments between government
and environmental groups over this point is the
stuff of legend in Broward County. Often
government marine biologists, such as Lou
Fisher, take the pressure from environmental
activists who depict him as uncaring. In reality,
Fisher, a long-time SCUBA diver and ocean
lover, tries to walk the fine line between tourism
groups and naturalists, or said another way,
between the "uncontrolled growth developers"
and the "let's save what is left of the planet"
people. With the ever increasing urbanization of
south Florida, the line becomes finer, and the


pressure for professionals like Fisher becomes
greater.
The artificial snorkeling reef is a compromise
between all of the above.
Fisher said that they have already received a
necessary permit from the State Department of
Natural Resources, and are waiting for approval
from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
When the approval comes in, Fisher relates,
bids will go out to marine contractors. The
contractors will need a spud barge with a crane to
transport the boulders, each between 2 to 5 feet
in diameter, weighing about 200 pounds.
The reef, when finished, should be a boon
for tourism, and locals who just wish to swim
off the beach and see the undersea world below.
The applications to a middle or secondary
school's science class field trip might be in the
birthing stages.

Replica of Sir Francis Drake's warshi calls oI' Miami

by Ray Pace W


"We hope to have all our sails up and
pennants flying in the breeze as we come into
Miami on an east wind," said an excited Jill Gates
speaking over the phone from Tampa.
Gates, a native of Canberra, Australia, is the
spokesperson for The Golden Hinde. a full-scale
working double of the 16th Century warship
sailed by Sir Francis Drake during his
circumnavigation of the globe between 1577 and
1580.
This version of The Golden Hinde was built
and launched in England in 1973. Since then,
she's covered over 100,000 miles under sail,
including a circumnavigation of her own,
retracing Drake's voyage. In addition to her role
of floating museum, the vessel has also been
featured in several movies including Shogun and
Swashbuckler.
"We'll be coming through Government Cut
on the morning of January 22," Gates said. "We
plan to dock right next to Bayside in downtown
Miami and spend a month there to allow people
to tour the vessel.
The galleon is 102 feet long.overall, and 75
feet long at the waterline. It displaces 300 tons
and carries 4150 square feet of sail. A 300
horsepower engine is available for maneuvering
in port. The Golden Hinde draws almost 14 feet
and has a mast height of 80 feet above the water.

Marine industry recognizes environment/prosperity dependence donates $10,000


Nova University received $10,000 from the
Marine Industries Association of South Florida to
make an Oceanographic Center vessel seaworthy
for ocean research.
Dr. Abraham S. Fischler, president of Nova
University, received the donation on behalf of the
Oceanographic Center and the University during
a Marine Industry dinner meeting Thursday at the
17th Street Marriott Hotel in Fort Lauderdale.
The donation will enable the Oceanographic
Center to complete the refurbishment of a 22-foot
Boston Whaler power boat, and conduct off-
shore research with the vessel.
The trade group made the contribution to
facilitate the University's research of the inland


waterway and ocean environments throughout
South Florida.
S"We think there are a number of research
projects underway at Nova University's
Oceanographic Center that are beneficial and of
interest to the community," said Van Snider,
executive director of the 500-member
organization.
"There is an obvious relationship between the
quality of our environment, particularly as it
pertains to our waterways, reef systems and
shorelines, and the continued success of our
industry," Snider said. "Our organization believes
that we should give back to our community by
supporting research that will enhance our

FUEL


PROBLEMS?

Dirty Fuel? Water in Fuel? Dirty Tanks? Algae in Fuel?
Fuel stored in your tanks-
Collects water due to condensation
Becomes contaminated with algae and other microbial organisms
Becomes contaminated with rust and debris from aging tanks
Is often contaminated with dirt and particulate matter at time of purchase
Deteriorates creating varnish, sludge and gums
This causes-
Clogging of filters and fuel lines
Slow starting
Loss of power
Expensive damage to injectors, injector pump and carburetor
Damage to valves, pistons, and rings necessitating costly overhaul

SOLVE YOUR FUEL PROBLEMS!
Our unique system of cleaning and fuel conditioning is based on experience
as contract tank and fuel cleaners for Fort Lauderdale and Miami's largest
repair facilities.
We've designed a unique system of "turbo-agitation" to free algae, dirt
and debris from tank bottoms. Once the matter is freed, the fuel is pumped out
of the tank and high pressure pumped through our special "micro-filtration"
to remone dirt, rust and algae, down to one micron.

Whitbread continues pace at halfway point


by Randy Kambic
NEW YORK When a record 15 maxis
lined up for the start of the Whitbread Round the
World Race for the Beefeater Trophy last
September, race organizers knew performances
would be faster than ever. Now with the
world's longest, fully crewed sailing event, with
23 yachts representing 13 nations, having
reached the halfway point in Auckland New
Zealand the only real surprises have been just
how fast most of the larger entries, as well as a
particular smaller class boat, have been.
"Most of the maxis are arriving considerably
sooner at each port than we predicted a year ago,"
said Rear Admiral Charles Williams of the Royal
Naval Sailing Association, race administrators.
"Also, while we expected thatMaiden of
England would be very competitive, her victories
in the last two legs are truly outstanding feats of
seamanship," added Williams, commenting on
the first all-female crew in the Race's 17-year
history.
On Thursday morning, January 4, the two
New Zealand ketches, Steinlager 2 and Fisher &
Paykel, finished the 3,434-mile third leg; that left
Fremantle, Australia on December 23, in first and
second places, respectively, with only six
minutes separating them. The next 12 hours saw
11 Whitbread boats cross the finish line.
The closest finish for line honors in the
history of the race was in 1985 when Atlantic
Privateer led NZI Enterprise by two minutes and
20 seconds into Auckland from Cape Town,
South Africa.
For the 84-foot Steinlager 2, this finish
earned Skipper Peter Blake and crew their third
Beefeater Trophy for Class A (IOR Rating 70.0-
62.5) line honors, for a combined lead of almost
24 hours over Merit of Switzerland at the halfway
point of the Race.
After guiding Maiden, a 58-foot masthead
sloop, into port late Saturday evening, January 6,
ahead of four rivals in Class D (IOR Rating
47.49-40.0), skipper Tracy Edwards was


awarded the prestigious British Yachtsman of the
Year Trophy, the first woman to receive the
honor in its 35-year history. Edwards said she
was speechless and "it's a great honor for the
crew."
The 72 masthead sloop, With Integrity of
Great Britain, skippered by Andrew Coghill,
won the Cruiser Class Beefeater Trophy upon its
arrival three and one half hours before Maiden.
Equity & Law of The Netherlands, a 63'
fractional sloop skippered by Dirk Nauta, won
the uncontested Class C (IOR Rating 54.49-
47.5) Beefeater Trophy on the morning of
January 6.
A-Beefeater Trophy is bring awarded to the
fastest-finishing boat in each of four classes (A,
C, D and Cruiser) at the end of each leg. There
are no entries in Class B. At race's end, a
Whitbread Trophy will be presented to the top
boat in each class according to corrected
(handicapped) time.
The crew of Charles Jourdan of France, the
72-foot fractional sloop in Class A, celebrated
Christmas by holding the overall lead in the Race
from December 24-26. Then, when it was in
fourth place on New Year's night, it was badly
damaged after colliding with a whale. Temporary
repairs were made of a hole 3.5 meters long and
0.6 meters wide at the deck edge of the starboard
side. The yacht eventually finished in ninth place
on the evening of January 4.
The other entry to suffer considerable
damage, Union Bank of Finland in Class A, with
a broken mast, finished in 16th place overall on
the afternoon of January 7. The last boat to arrive
was Class D's La Poste of France on Thursday
morning, January 11.
The boats will begin the fourth leg to Punta
del Este, Uruguay, 6,255 nautical miles, on
February 4. An exciting feature will be rounding
South America's Cape Horn with its strong,
tricky winds. The race will reach U.S. shores for
the first time in its 17-year history when the
yachts reach Ft. Lauderdale in April. Pier 66
Resort & Marina will berth most of the yachts


and serve as headquarters.
There are currently ten Americans
participating in the Race, including Eric Soper of
Norwalk, CT, and Arthur Radford of San Diego
on NCB Ireland; Bill Pearson of Monroe, CT, on
British Satquote Defender, Dawn Riley of Detroit
on Maiden; Chicago native Skip Novak, skipper
of Fazisi of the Soviet Union; Rick Jakaus of
Boston and Fridolf Hanson of Greenwich, CT,
on Martela O.F.; John Jordane of Long Beach,

WARNING
Liferafts must be serviced by licensed and trained technicians. Giving your liferaft to
unauthorized parties subjects you, the captain or the ,owner, to dangerous and unnecessary
liability. Some small' businesses advertise liferaft servicing when they have only one or no
licenses. They either service your liferaft with no training, authorization, or access to correct parts,
or ship it 200 miles away where they have no control over scheduling and you cannot see the raft
opened if there is a problem. Some have even taken a similar name to ours to add to the confusion.
We hold over 20 licenses that are on display.
We are the only authorized facility in Palm Beach and Broward counties for Avon,the only U.S.C.G.

Are Transatlantics getting shorter?


by Jack McClintock
Satellite technology is now permitting
scientists to actually measure the drift of
continents.
Fort Davis, Texas, for instance, is getting
closer to the South of France by some 22
millimeters every year, or over half an inch. On
the other hand, Owens Valley and Otay Mountain,
California, not far from one another across the
San Andreas Fault, are moving 55 millimeters
closer every year.
Scientists have predicted these movements
with fair accuracy for 15 years, since the first
plate tectonic models were developed based on
magnetic anomalies on either side of the sea floor
ridges marking the edges of plates, says
Christopher Harrison, professor of marine
geology and geophysics at the University of
Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science, who directs the analysis of
Satellite Laser Ranging data.
But now, he says, SLR technology is
verifying those predictions. It is also producing
surprises and new mysteries.
For instance, Quincy, California, to the east
of the San Andreas Fault, is officially on the
North American plate. "But, when we look at
Quincy, we see a motion not quite like a North
American motion," Harrison says. "There is time,
but there is an added motion as well to the
northwest by about two centimeters a year."
Why? In this case, scientists believe it is
because Quincy is west of the so-called Basin and
Range Province of the U.S., an area which is
undergoing "extension," of spreading, by a
centimeter or two per year. "Thus," Harrison
says, "Quincy is participating in the North
American motion plus the motion of extension of
the Basin and Range Province. And it is the SLR
data which is supplying this theory of extension."
About 28 SLR stations are installed across
the globe, some on every continent. These
stations point a laser beam at a satellite, called
Lageos, which is covered with special reflectors
that return the beam to the sending station. There,

the elapsed time is measured by a very accurate
clock. The data is processed at Goddard Space
Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.
"If you do this a number of times," Harrison
says, "you can determine the position of the laser
station. If you plot their positions year after year
and we typically do four to ten a year for each
pair of stations you start to see changes because
the stations participate in the motion of the
continents they are on. We can get accuracies
now to within about one centimeter."
The simple result, as Harrison puts it, is that
SLR data, collected over the past five years,
largely agrees with the earlier predictions based
on data reflecting average motion over five
million years. For instance, the movement
between Greenbelt, Md., and Yarragadee, in
Western Australia, was predicted to be 88
millimeters a year, and the SLR measures it as 86.
"The important thing here is that it shows the
motion is constant, smooth, without big jumps."
More interesting, Harrison says, is where
discrepancies turn up between the plate tectonic
model predictions and the SLR data. "We've
found three stations which do not agree with the
model," he says.
One is the example given above, of Quincy,
California.
Another is the case of Simosato, Japan, on
the main island of Honshu. Simosato is formally
on the Eurasian Plate that includes Europe, Asia
and the Japan islands, so it should not be moving
to the European SLR stations.
"But it is," Harrison says. "It has an
additional motion toward the northwest by 40
millimeters a year. We had no knowledge of this
before the SLR system began working." It turns
out that, in a complicated way, Simosato is also
"participating somewhat" in the motion of the
Pacific Plate.

And there is the case of Huahaine, in French
Polynesia, which should not be moving in
relation to Hawaii, because Hawaii and Huahaine
are both on the Pacific Plate. Yet, according to
SLR data, they are moving apart by 12
millimeters a year.
"There is no very good explanation for this,"
Harrison says. And because all the other SLR
stations are in one direction from Huahaine there
is no way to measure its total, overall motion.
More stations are needed, he says, but they are
expensive to build.
Recently, NASA thinkers have had a clever
idea. Why not invert the scheme? Put the laser on
the satellite, and the reflector on the ground. That
way, scientists could do hundreds of SLR
observations. This could produce even more
useful data.
For instance, the increased accuracy of one
millimeter rather than one centimeter --could
allow the examination of motion over shorter time
scales. It would allow the measuring of vertical
motion as well as horizontal, thus helping to
answer crucial questions about global sea level
changes: what is rising or falling, the level. of the
sea or the continents themselves?

'Exploring Ocean's Influence:' 1990 Week of the Ocean theme


Individuals, businesses, campuses and non-
profit groups across the United States are gearing
up to celebrate the Seventh Annual National
Week of the Ocean to be held April 22-28, 1990.
The event is chaired by astronaut/aquanaut Scott
Carpenter and sponsored by Fort Lauderdale-
based Week of the Ocean, Inc., a marine
education program according to president/founder
Cynthia Hancock.
Joining Carpenter in endorsing the event are
the National Marine Educators Association and a
panel of renowned ocean pioneers including
Norman Baker, Heyerdahl navigator, Ra I and II;
Eugenie Clark, zoologist and shark expert; Sylvia
Earle, marine biologist; Tap Pryor, aquaculture
pioneer; Andreas Rechnitzer, record diver,
Trieste; and Stan Waterman, Emmy award-
winning underwater photographer.
The ongoing theme for the event, "Exploring
the Ocean's Influence," lends itself to many types
of events ir personal research from the arts to
commerce, from history to foods, from
endangered sea creatures to environmental issues
such as offshore drilling or ocean dumping.
Celebration kits can be ordered from Week of
the Ocean for events such as a campus-wide
Week of the Ocean involving studies in many
subjects; a School Marine Fair to showcase
student projects in the community; or a
community festival such as that held annually in

Cameras at sea: a survival plan


by William Reidenbach
It's a fog-shrouded morning along the coast.
You glide through an oil-smooth sea. A dulled,
dime-size sun just above the horizon lights the
damp air with an orange-gray glow. Treetops in
shadowy silhouette boil from the shoreline mist.
It's going to be a stunning photo. You squint
into the camera viewfinder, frame up an award
winner and press the release. Nothing happens.
You take a closer look at the camera. What
are those bright turquoise specks all over the
electrical contacts? What's that stuff seeping out
the back?
It's salt damage. Salt, as in salt water or even
salty air, can quickly have those sensitive camera
electronics looking like a coral reef. "Underwater"
cameras resist this damage, but many boaters rely
on "land" cameras for sea duty. If you're among
them, you need to provide it some maritime life
insurance. It's a policy that combines good
cleaning and thorough protection.
Start by removing every trace of dirt, dust
and salty deposits. It's a two-part process. First
use a small, stiff nylon brush (not wire!) to
knock away the worst grime in hidden nooks.
You'll likely find deposits in such places as under
the ASA selector heel, behind the film advance
lever, in and under the shutter release, and so on.'
Brush these places well. ,
Next, use a soft brush, such as camel hair, to
"dust" the camera and lens bodies with quick,
short-strokes. Open the back and gently dust
inside the camera, with particular attention to the
film take-up spool and pressure plate. Do this
light brushing after every roll of film.
If salt deposits are visible or the camera feels
"sticky," wipe it down with a damp chamois or

other soft, lint-free cloth after brushing. Don't get
the lens surface wet, and dry everything
thoroughly when you're done. .
The lens, viewfinder and inside mirrors are
the "eyes" of your camera. Treated gently, these
optics will last for years. If the lens is removable,
detach it. Look inside the camera. See the slightly
canted viewfinder mirror? Dust it very gently
with the soft brush. Don't use liquids on your
camera's interior. You could create more
problems than you solve.
Check the lens surface itself. Most are coated
to help "color correct" exposures. Commercial
window cleaners can dissolve the coating. Dry
paper towels or even dry "lens paper" can sand it
away and make small scratches that will affect the
sharpness of your pictures.
Most effective is to dust the lens with your
clean, soft brush. For very dirty or greasy lenses,
rinse with one of two liquids only: a specific
"lens cleaning solution," or distilled water. Use
either to first wet some lens paper or a paper
towel. Then gently blot the lens surface clean.
It's not a good idea to clean the lens
frequently. Instead, protect it with an inexpensive
filter, such a Skylight 1A or lB. A Skylight filter
enhances your pictures while protecting the
camera lens. If the filter gets coated with salt,
rinse it. If it gets cracked, buy another and be
happy you're not replacing a lens. Skylight filters

are available at camera shops for about $15-20.
You need to seal your cleaned photo
equipment from salt spray and "ambient" salt and
grit floating in the air. Start by putting a small dab
of petroleum jelly on the camera's outside
electrical contracts. You'll also want a dab on
exposed levers, wheels and buttons such as the
ASA selector wheel, film advance lever, door
release shaft, and rewind release button. Use a
cotton swab for hard-to-reach areas, otherwise,
fingertip application is fine. Apply a thin coat to
the outside ring of the lens mount on either the
camera or lens. Wipe off the excess with a paper
towel before reattaching the lens. Remember,
your camera is a precision instrument. Don't glop
the jelly on as if packing a wheel bearing. A very
small amount will do.
To protect the camera body, use WD-40,
CRC's Marine 6-66, or a similar oil-based, water-
displacement product (plastic camera bodies
don't need this extra protection). Don't spray the
camera directly spray a lint-free cloth and use it
to apply a thin coat to the camera and lens bodies
Don't get this oil on the mirrors, lens surface or

Cameras at sea: a survival plan


viewfinder it's difficult to remove and could
bring some unwelcome special effects. If it leaks
inside the camera, the oil can cause erratic shutter
action and other problems. Be careful.
Your cleaned, protected camera should be
stored properly. A "camera case" isn't airtight
enough for sea duty. Better to spend about $20
for a pouch that looks like a tiny air mattress, or



,nto--t





The worst has happened. You leaned over too
far for a shot of that brilliant sponge and dropped
your camera into the salt water. What now?
There's no guaranteed method, but one thing
is certain: do nothing and your camera will
quickly become an expensive paperweight. Of the
major manufacturers I spoke with, most offered
but one solution: buy another camera. If the steps
below seem severe, remember you're in a "no
loss" situation.
Don 't delay in getting your camera out of the
salt water. Some models will remain fairly
watertight for a few minutes, depending upon
the depth. The less water inside the better your
chances for success.
Discard the batteries and film..Immediately
place the camera in a bucket of fresh water. Run
it through several freshwater "baths." Take it
apart as much as possible and do your best to
rinse out all the salt water.
Have a method of quick-drying available. A
hair dryer on "warm" is best, or use low pressure
from a scuba regulator or BCD inflator port.


about $2 for a box of sealable freezer bags. Either
provides better protection than a camera case
alone. The freezer bag is economical if you store
the wrapped camera in a case, or otherwise
cushion it. The pouch provides its own
cushioning, and will also float. Whichever you
choose, keep a little packet of silicon dessicant
(from your photo or electronics retailer) in the


bag to absorb moisture.
Cleaning and protecting your camera for the
first time is always hardest. Afterward, check
your camera every few days. Keep it wiped free
of salt, dust and dirt. When debris accumulates
on the petroleum jelly (it would otherwise be
inside the mechanism), wipe it off and put on a
new application. Keep your camera properly
stored. If it won't be used for more than a few
days, remove the batteries.
When the shutter snaps you've captured a
little slice of time to add to the boating album and
share. By developing a habit of conscientious
care for your camera, next time a playful dolphin
breaks the emerald sea off your bow, you'll get
the picture.
