Free Coral Reef
seminar at show
A half-day workshop for individuals and
group leaders in becoming coral reef conservation
activists will be conducted with the Ocean Expo
'90 dive show to be held at the Radisson
Convention Centre in Miami.
The morning seminar is being sponsored by
Project ReefKeeper a national affiliate of the
American Littoral Society dedicated exclusively to
the protection of coral reefs and their marine life.
According to the Project ReefKeeper
spokesman, the workshop is designed for
persons wanting to work through a club or
group, as well as for those eager to take serious
action on their own.
The free half-day workshop, which starts at
9:30 a.m., will consist of four one-hour
segments, each focusing on a single conservation
issue area. The four issue areas to be targeted are:
offshore oil and ship groundings, reef fish and
liverock overexploitation, new coral reef marine
preserve proposals and beach widening
Each issue area segment will cover
background information, current status of
pertinent campaigns, targeted government
agencies and their workings, available advocacy
tools and strategies, and a step-by-step program
on how to start taking action.
All participants will receive a detailed Issue
Resource Book for each issue area, including
sample advocacy tools such as petitions and
There is no cost for participation in the
workshop, but capacity is limited and all

A diver's return to the sea
by Bryan Brooks
It had been a tough year. A marriage ended, a
diving business sold, and children grown and
gone. He was alone, in a solitary room, with two
cats and word processor. He was alone.
Somehow he felt the Lady had let him down. He
reacted by leaving Her. For the first time in his
life, he turned his back on Her and just walked
Always before when things were tough, he

He learned a new job, met new people. He
forced himself to think about other things and
pretend he didn't care. He was fifty and starting
all over. He was too old for Her anyway, so then
and there he made up his mind he could do it
without Her, So he did.
He learned the whole world had changed
since 1963 when he had married for better or
worse, forever. When forever ended, he broke

the bonds of a whole lifestyle and culture by
But it had been a year away from Her. When
the winds were down and everything was calm,
he couldn't help it, he would think about Her.
Within him, there was a sultry being that he
longed for. Deep in sleep at night, he could hear
Her call for him. She asked: Didn't he care about
Her anymore? He tried to put Her out of his
mind. He told himself he didn't need Her
It hurt to see other people learning about Her
and enjoying Her and reveling in Her beauty. But
he stayed away. He proved to himself he didn't
need Her, he thought. But now the year was over
and where was he?
It was with some trepidation and fear that he
started to pack the gear, start the car and drive
east down East Las Olas Blvd., east past the
stately Royal palms and crossed the bridge.
What would she be like? It had been a long
time. Would She forgive him? Did he forgive
Her? Did he really need Her?
The boat left Bahia Mar with him on board.
He was full of apprehension, and doubt. The
usual hectic activity of too many bodies packed
too close together on a rocking live boat were
sights and sounds all too familiar .o him.
In thirty minutes they were over a shipwreck
he had seen a thousand times; a wreck he had
taken many tourists to see and ma vel over. But
now here he was, here inching himself closer to
the back platform, closer to Her. The sun was hot
and the gear was heavy. In that year he had
forgotten how miserable the gear was on a boat.
Soon it was him standing there on the platform
looking down into Her. He hesitated.
In a few seconds he steeped off the platform
and left the rocking boat and the hard world he
had been a part of for a year.
The time dissolved immediately. Shl forgave
him. He was falling through Her wetness and
Her sensual beauty. She had swallowed him and
he was happy again. It was the return of the child
to the womb where She would make the world
safe for the child again.
The fish were there; the coral was there. The

A return to the sea-
asking Her child how he could ever have left Her.
Did he think he could have lived without Her?
She appeared to smile in a knowing and
scolding way at Her child as he crawled through
Her belly one more time; one more time to
marvel, to feel alive, to finally know why he had
been put here on this wet planet in the first place.
At a depth of 100 feet, the man-child stopped
at the stem of the wreck Mercedes I. He looked
up toward the sun. He could see the millions of
fish and the encnisting coral that was quickly

The prospect of locating a world class
aquarium at or near Port Everglades will be the
subject of an in-depth economic feasibility study
expected to be completed May, 1990.
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR)

of a $350,000 grant for the proposed aquarium
development. Grant money will be obtained on a
reimbursement basis from the DNR and will be
used toward several project elements including:

Here are a few suggestions that will, I
believe, increase the interest of the boating public:
Crew Stock Exchange: As many European
nautical newspapers or magazines are doing, this
rubrique (rubric) would enable local or foreign
yachtsmen to find non-paid crew interested in
sailing for pleasure, or crew to find the yacht
owner in search of crew.
The public interest in the Whitbread is
hopefully great The same applies to the B.O.C.
Challenge. But, although I understand that it is
impossible to talk about all yachting events in the
world, the race that is actually taking place is
worth the public interest and will not lessen it. It
is the single-handed round the world without
stopover race [The Globe Challenge].
If I am right there is an American sailor
amongst the competitors. [See "Mike Plant in
singlehanded around-the-world yacht race," page
9, November 1989, Waterfront News.] In
addition, the organizer and participatory is Philippe
Jeantot, twice winner of the B.O.C. Challenge.
The course is actually headed by' Titovan
Lamazou, the B.O.C. second. Jeantot, well
known by the American public, is for the moment
fourth. There are 19 participators. All those great
sailors will join the next B.O.C.
Lastly, I hope that the smallest yacht that
participates in the Whitbread, the French Post
Office yacht La Poste, crewed by postmen, will
receive the attention and welcome it received in
the proceeding stop. In Auckland, New Zealand,
6,000 were there to greet the last boat of the race.
New Zealand postal authorities gave half-day
vacations to their employees to welcome their
French colleagues. Let's hope that Ft
Lauderdale will surpass Auckland in that matter.

Since June 1986 acting on behalf of the

Ask Big Al
I bought a used boat about a year ago and
although the motor ran fairly well' I've had
nothing but grief with the hull. First, the rails got
so loose I had to rebolt and refasten them; then a
chock broke in half. Next, while pulling in a
boater who had engine failure a cleat pulled out.
I don't know what else will go and is there
anything I can do to prevent more trouble?
Buying a used boat is most always a gamble
unless it is surveyed or checked out by a
With all the grief you've had, I would start
from scratch and check all cleats, chocks and rails
etc. for through bolted fittings, back plate, all of
them with plates or large washers. If deck is not
reinforced I would put reinforcement under all
cleats and anchor posts.
It seems that the boat builder cut comers on
your boat so I also would double clamp all hoses
and check all through hull fittings. Any hardware
that pulls out under stress can kill or maim any
person it strikes. Any reliable boat builder does
all these safeguards.
I have an outboard that runs OK but I am
used to looking at gauges on my car and I have
practically nothing to check on my boat for oil,
heating or charging rate.
Can I get gauges or some kind of indicators
to show conditions of my engine?
As outboards have the oil and gasoline in a
mixture oil pressure is not necessary. But there
are heat indicators available that would give you
either a light or a clock to give your temperature.
If you have an alternator or generator on your
engine an ampmeter can be installed for your
charging rate. Also there are volt meters that can
show you battery condition. Most any good
outboard dealer-or marine electrician can handle
I live down in The Keys and have a boat with
an inboard engine and no skeg or strut under the
boat that protects the propeller or rudder. I run in
shallow water and I always am in fear of striking
the rudder or bending my shaft or propeller.
What can be done to protect them?
There must be some sort of keel under this
boat as the boat would really wander or slide
without one. If the boat is wood or fiberglass an
added keel could be attached or fiberglassed to
this. It should be deep enough so that it would
touch bottom before the rudder or prop does.
I would put a skeg of metal on the bottom of
this keel so that it would not tear or break if you
struck bottom. Any good fiberglass man can
build you one.
I have a riveted aluminum boat that has leaks
that I can't locate. It has flotation so it won't sink,
but I always have water that I have to bail out
Lots of rivets to check, and what can I do to
find these leaks and to repair them?
I don't know how big this boat is and what
size motor you have on it. Oversize engines and
pounding do loosen rivets and stringers. Also
excessive vibrations. What you should do is haul
the boat and put water in it. All the leaks will start
to run out of the loose rivets or cracks.
Don't fill the whole boat up, only to where
the leaks show. Get some marking pencils and
circle all the holes or leaks. Get them all. Now
clean out all the water and clean around all marks
down to the metal and rough up the aluminum
slightly. Now patch all leaks with any metal
sealer or fiberglass or Martex which does a great

Ten easy ways to co
According to Paula Stewart, a Broward
County Extension agent with the University of
Florida, a family can decrease its water
consumption by as much as 30 percent overall by
taking a few simple precautions:
1. Fill a 1 quart plastic container with water
and place in toilet tank. This can save as much as
10-20 percent on your total water consumption,
as the toilet accounts for as much as 40 percent of
all household water use.
2. Be sure your toilet doesn't continue to
flow after flushing, thus wasting water.
3. Take shorter showers and install a flow
restriction in the shower head.
4. Turn the water off while you lather your
body or hair. Turn back on to rinse.
5. Install modem water-conservative toilets.
Using only 3 gallons of water per flush, as
compared to 5-7 gallons in a regular toilet, these
save up to 40 gallons a day.
6. Use a faucet aerator. They're inexpensive,
and can restrict water flow as much as 4 gallons
7. In the kitchen, cook simpler meals, using
8. Cook foods in the proper sized pans over
low heat with tightly fitting lids.
9. Save leftover cooking stock and \
make soups with it.
10. Don't rinse dishes under running water
before stacking in the dishwasher. Use a spatula
to scrape, then soak in a small dishpan of water.
Only wash a full load in the dishwasher.

imposed water use restriction on the area due to a
prolonged record drought.
Otherwise, boaters must abide by
conservation measures governing residential lawn
watering and car washing. Except in Northeast
and southeast Broward County, boats docked
behind or trailered at even numbered addresses
can be washed between 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. on
Tuesday, Thursdays and Sundays; at odd
addresses Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays,
clarified Ann Overton from the district's office in
West Palm Beach.
Tougher restrictions have been imposed on
two areas of Broward County. East of State Road
7 (US 441) from Hillsboro Creek south to
Cypress Creek Road and from- Dania Cut-off
Canal south to the Broward-Dade County line
east of Florida's Turnpike, outside water use
(including boat washing) is limited to two days a
week. Boats can be washed behind odd-
numbered addresses from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.
Wednesday and Saturdays; even-numbers
addresses- same hours on Thursdays and
Saturday. Here too, rinsing and flushing of
boats after salt water use is allowed any day but
is limited to five minutes per boat per day.

Tariff cut on pleasure boats in Bahamas
NASSAU, Bahamas An increase in the
flow of U.S. pleasure boaters to the Bahamas is
expected to result from the recent amendment
here of the Tariff Act, which now enables visiting
yachts to remain in Bahamian waters for up to
twelve months without having to pay duty.
Customs duty on certain categories of pleasure
craft has also been reduced.
For yachtsmen, the amendment means being
allowed to cruise in Bahamian waters for up to
twelve months without payment of customs and
stamp duties. Previously, the maximum amount
of time allowed had been six months. This 12
month period may be extended up to two years in
payment of a $500 fee.
Additionally customs duties on the
importation of pleasure boats has been reduced
from 32.5% to 7.5% on vessels not less than 30
feet and from 32.5% to 5% on vessels in excess
of 100 feet.
The new regulations are expected to trigger a
chain reaction of new marina construction, as
well as the development of related resort and
marina service facilities throughout the Bahamas
archipelago. Already new hotels and marinas are
under construction at the Andros Town
Lighthouse Club in Fresh Creek, Andros and
Driggs Hill, Andros.
The amendment will further popularize the

About Broward's Waterway Cleanup '90
The Marine Industries Association of South
Florida, Inc. (MIASF) has organized the 13th
Waterway Cleanup as a public awareness
campaign to Keep Our Waterways Clean. What
started as a group of volunteers gathering on a
Saturday in March every year has grown into a
major event involving literally thousands of
volunteers and hundreds of boats. Last year's
Waterway Cleanup campaign pulled 330 tons of
garbage from the Broward County waterways.
This year we expect even more, but we need your
Whether you own a boat or not, you can play
a role in helping us clean Broward County's
waterways. In return for your efforts, you will
receive a ticket for admittance to attend a fantastic
party we call the "Trash Bash." There will be hot
dogs and refreshments and the chance to win
fabulous prizes. Location of the "Trash Bash"
will be given at the sites.
To participate, show up at one of the
locations listed here at 9 a.m. and get directions
from the site coordinator. Be prepared to work!
At the site, you will receive a complimentary T-
shirt while they last. Remember, you need not
own a boat. We need people on the shore to help
carry the garbage from the docks to the
What to wear:
Make sure to wear clothes that you won't
mind getting wet and dirty. Please wear work
gloves and you must wear shoes. Sun tan
lotion, sunglasses and hats are also a good idea to
protect you from the sun. Bring drinking water.
Not all locations will have drinking water
facilities. Last, but not least, wear a smile, you
are doing a great service for your city.

Palm Beach County's waterways and beaches in Trash-A-Thon
by Craig Lustgarten
Over 2,000 volunteers of all ages will once
again be pitching in to clean up Palm Beach
County in Trash-A-Thon '90 on March 10.
Pine Jog Environmental Center of Florida
Atlantic University is organizing this year's event
along with several local and national corporate
sponsors. Volunteers from all over the county
will be cleaning up Palm Beach County's
waterways, Intracoastal sites, beaches, and
interior sites for three hours.
This year's honorary chairperson is County
Commissioner Carol Elmquist and the regular
chair is J1 F. Koons.
The boating community is once again
expected to play a major role in this year's
cleanup, related Robin Martin, special events
coordinator at the Jog.
Martin stated, "We're asking boaters to pick
up as much garbage as possible along the
waterways, and there will be dumpsters at six
boat ramps throughout the county.
Dumpster sites for boaters will be located at
Burt Reynolds Park, Phil Foster Park, Currie
Park, Bryant Park, Boynton Inlet Ramp, and
Palmetto Park Road Ramp.
Sites scheduled to be cleaned up which are
accessible from boats only include Big Munyon
Island, Little Munyon Island, Peanut Island,
Audubon Islands, and Beer Can Island off
In addition, major parks and beaches
throughout Palm Beach County will be cleaned,
ranging from south Inlet Park in Boca Raton to
Coral Cove Park in Tequesta..
Last year, over 51 tons of litter were collected

Martin added, "We want to get more people
to pick up even more litter this year the more
people we have participating, the more
environmental awareness there will be."
Martin also noted that an "adopt a beach"
program has recently been initiated in the county.
The concept is to encourage businesses to choose
a beach or area of waterfront to purge on a
regular basis. The only minimal commitment'
sponsors need to make is to have two additional

Offshore pro tour (OPT) announced; major cities to host
by Bob Black
The newly formed Offshore Professional
Tour (OPT) in February unveiled an inaugural
nine-race schedule including, for the first time,
events in six major cities.
While offshore powerboat racing has been
held in the waters off big cities before, it usually
has been in just one or, at most two cities a year.
This year, OPT has slated races for Detroit, Los
Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York and
San Francisco, according to John Carbonell,
OPT's executive director at the Miami
International Boat Show.
Other scheduled race sites include Marathon,
in the Florida Keys, and the World
Championship series in Key West.
"OPT was born out of listening to the racers,
fans, sponsors and location people who said they
wanted the sport to grow," said actor/racer Don
Johnson, a member of the OPT Board of
Directors. "We want to be attractive to major
sponsors, and the only way to do that is to
perform where the fans are.
"Offshore powerboat racing is one of the
most exciting, exotic, dangerous sports around,
and there is no reason it can't be on a level with
or higher than that of auto racing."
At least four races are slated for network
television coverage with Emmy-winning sports
producer Don Ohlmeyer teaming up with
Johnson (who won the Offshore World Cup in
1988) to produce shows for NBC Sports.
Currently scheduled for network TV are the New
York, Miami, Detroit and Key West races.
In addition to these network shows, NBC
Sportsworld plans to air highlights of the San
Francisco and Long Beach (Los Angeles) races.
Carbonell added that races not on full network
television would be syndicated.
The Offshore Professional Tour is an
offshoot of the American Power Boat
Association's. (APBA) Offshore Racing
Commission. Last December,-a group of
Superboat owners moved away from APBA to
form OPT. They have been joined by racers in
three other classes.
The organizing group, which comprises the
board of directors, includes such offshore
powerboat racing veterans as five-time national
Superboat Championr Al Copeland, Reggie
Fountain, Tom Gentry, Johnson, Peter Markey,
1989 Superboat National Champion Charles

"Over the past few years, we've always fclt
that this sport should be run like a business,"
Copeland said. "We're making changes for the
better and we'll race in locations that will give us
the most exposure to move Offshore racing
Prize purses of as much as four times the
amount offered by Offshore racing in previous
years will be offered on the OPT circuit,
Carbonell said, with a minimum award purse of
$75,000 being required before a race is
scheduled. Previously, Offshore purses were set
at a minimum of $25,000.
Carbonell said racing will be as close to shore
as possible with shorter, but more, laps of 18
miles each for greater spectator appeal. He added

New world outboard speed record pegged at 176.6 MPH
PARKER, AZ An outboard hydroplane
powered by a single Evinrude V-8 racing engine
boosted the world outboard speed record to
176.556 mph early in the morning, November
30th, on a quiet stretch of the Colorado river a
few miles north of Parker, Arizona. The new
mark eclipsed the old figure in the record book
that had stood at 169.531 since 1986.
The Mach Propeller Special hydroplane was
prepared and refined by Second Effort
Performance Products of Lake Hamilton, FL,
specialists in the art of marine high-performance.
They also prepared and tuned the engine which
used a mixture of racing fuel and nitrous oxide.
Bedford (Bud) Davie, semi-retired successful
business executive and investor living in
Scottsdale, AZ, owns the record-breaking Mach
Propeller Special. His interest in outboard racing
dates back to his own participation in the sport in
the late 1920s. Gary Garbrecht, president of
Second Effort, put together the massive record
assault and sparked the team of specialists who
worked day and night for four days to achieve
Driver Bob Wartinger of Seattle drove the
Mach Propeller Special on all passes through the
measured kilometer course. On the first attempt
on Monday, November 27,.a collision with a
duck damaged the hull, causing it to sink.
An all night job of repair and engine work
had the hydroplane ready to go at dawn Tuesday.
Another accident involving low water level and
rocks brought an end to the Tuesday effort.
Wednesday, November 29 saw Wartinger set
a new record at 170.792, an average of his two
best consecutive runs. However, this number
was not satisfactory to either Davie or Garbrecht,
and another attempt was set for dawn on
Thursday. A quick run downriver at 181.569,
and an upriver pass at 171.544 gave the new
mark of 176.556.
The record attempt was sponsored by Mach
Propellers and Aronow Powerboats, was
sanctioned by the American Power Boat
Association, Detroit, and the official referee was
George May, San Diego. Many experienced
persons from Parker, AZ, donated their time and
effort to the success of the project.

Boat show coming to the Palm Beaches
"The biggest display of boats and boating
products in the Palm Beaches is ready for its
second great year at the West Palm Beach
Auditorium March 29th through April 1st,"
according to show organizers.
More than 130 booths filled with every type
of marine accessory will fill the floor of the
auditorium. Outside, 65,000 square feet of
exhibit space will feature displays by virtually
every boat dealer in the area. There will be more
than 350 boats on display.
The move to the auditorium in 1989 exceeded
all expectations. "There were more boats and
products on display than anyone anticipated and
our attendance more than doubled from our old
location," comments Boat Show Chairman Jim
Bronstein of Spencer Boat Works. "Finally, the
Palm Beach area has a major regional boat
In 1990 the emphasis will be on upgrading
the displays and giving consumers a little more
to see and do while they are on the showgrounds.
Among the features being planned are a series of
professionally produced fishing seminars.
"Besides the seminars, we are also working on a
number of specialty displays," comments show
manager John Good. "We already. have a
commitment from Bobby Humphrey and his
'Hooters Racing Team' to display their
championship Formula 1 race boat. We will be
releasing more information on these special
attractions as the show draws near."
As always, the real emphasis of the show is
the products on display. This is the one time of
the year that local dealers bring all their products
together to display and sell. For the consumer, it
is the best possible time of the year to see and
buy boats and boating products.
"Not only does the boat show provide us an
opportunity to showcase our products, it also is
the single biggest source of revenue for our
association," comments show chairman
Bronstein. The non-profit Marine Industries
Association of Palm Beach County owns and
sponsors the show. "Profits from the boat show
are used to support many worthwhile projects
such as the artificial reef program and a number
of important lobbying efforts," said Bronstein.
The Palm Beach County Boat Show will be
open on Thursday and Friday from 12:00 noon to
9:00 p.m.; on Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00
p.m. and on Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00
p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for
children 6-12. Under 6 are free.
Buyer's market awaits visitors at boat shows
by Arlene Sloan
CHICAGO Traditionally a strong selling
period, the winter boat show season will offer
added benefits this year as boat dealers and
manufacturers move to regain sales momentum
for 1990. Coming off its first downturn in six
years, the boating industry closed out 1989 with
a built-in capacity that has left inventories
bulging. "Boat sellers are anxious to move
product and the winter shows will see everyone
working harder for the prospective buyer's
business," predicts industry spokesman Jeff
Napier, president of the National Marine
Manufacturers Association (NMMA). "For
consumers, it couldn't be a better time to buy a
Always a good place to find bargains, boat
shows can record as much as 30 to 40 percent of
annual marine sales during the winter months of
January through April. "Because the early
business helps forecast production demand and
boosts an otherwise slow season at retail stores,
dealers offer attractive incentives to buy before
the boating season begins," explains Napier.
"Boat shows also offer the ideal situation for
buyers to make comparisons, arrange financing
and select accessories all in one trip."
To better prepare the prospective buyer,
NMMA offers a Step by Step Guide to
Affordable Boat Buying. Readers gain
information on the buying, financing and
maintenance of a boat, as well as current average
price ranges and monthly ownership costs (if
boats are financed) for nine of today's most
popular boating rigs. Newly updated for 1990,
cost figures in the brochure reflect the continued

affordability of owning a boat.
Even without the bargains brought on by last
year's slowdown in sales, Napier suggests that
manufacturing, financing and packaging
advancements over the past ten years have
combined to make boats more affordable today
than at any time in history. In 1987, the price
for a 19-foot runabout, outboard engine and
trailer included, was listed at $8,450 $14,700,
or about $119 $169 per month. Two years
later, the same package is going for $8,270
- $14,810, or an average of $123 $209 a month
- an indication that prices are rising at or below
recent low rates ofinflation.
"In evaluating the current market, buyers will
want to cover certain key points to be sure the
product they're considering will fit their needs,
reflects a fair price and comes with adequate
customer service to ensure enjoyment of the
purchase for years," advises Napier. "The guide
arms prospective buyers with the information
needed to ask the right questions of salespeople
at boat shows or in marine dealerships." Also
included is a listing of major boat shows and a
special "Boat Selector Checklist" to keep model
and cost comparisons easy and organized when

Pleasure boat business contracts in 1989
by Greg Proteau
CHICAGO Recreational boating
enthusiasts cooled their aggressive pace of
buying new products in 1989 causing a moderate
contraction in the market. According to the
National Marine Manufacturers' Association,
new boat sales dropped 14.9 percent while total
expenditures including aftermarket and service
sales decreased 4.8 percent compared with
record industry sales achieved in 1988. Prior to
1989, the pleasure boating industry achieved six
consecutive years of growth with a
corresponding 91 percent increase in sales.
Industry analysts attribute the 1989
slowdown to factors which converged in the
first half of the calendar year: a spike in consumer
loan interest rates, inclement weather during the
peak spring sales period, and a "wait and see"
attitude exhibited by buyers of durable goods. In
the interim, interest rates, which correlate directly
to affordability of the product, have moderated
significantly. More difficult to predict are
consumer confidence and buying intentions.
"Following six years of growth, we almost
forgot that boating is a cyclical industry,"
explains NMMA president Jeff Napier. "But
those cycles had occurred more regularly in the
past... usually every three to five years. We kept
building products into this correction cycle which

this excess being worked out. From the
consumer standpoint, it's an excellent time to
trade-up or enter boating: interest rates are stable
or declining and producers and their dealers are
highly motivated to sell. In addition, the winter
boat show season traditionally the most cost-
effective time of year to shop is beginning."
Total retail sales dropped to $17.1 from
$17.9 billion as boat unit sales fell to 637,500
from 749,020 in 1989 versus 1988. In terms of
unit sales, it makes 1989 the fifth best year of the
decade, just behind 657,730 boats sold in 1984.
The decline impacted all marine product
categories tracked by NMMA except inboard
runabout (water ski boat) activity where advances
were 23 percent to 9,100 units. In the "bread-and-
butter" sales segment of the market, outboard
engines fell seven percent to 430,000 units and
outboard boats dropped 18 percent to 291,000.

performance sailing skills. The changes
implemented last year include consolidating the
race week from 23 days to a 13-day, 6 series
race, eliminating the controversial Miami to
Nassau race and opening the regatta to the

Royal, Jamaica, has emerged as the overall
winner of the 18th Annual Pineapple Cup

Lt. Richard Russell, "Saucy Sue" had a corrected
time of 5 days, 7 hours, 22 minutes and 45
seconds and her log registered a total of 875 miles
for the course.

extremely hard and deserves this honor." The

received the coveted Pineapple Cup, presented by
Jamaica's Minister of Tourism, Senator, the Hon.
Frank Pringle at the awards ceremony at the
Montego Bay Yacht Club.
This is the second overall win for "Saucy
Sue" which took the Pineapple Cup in 1988 with
a corrected time of 5 days, 17 hours, 5 minutes
and 23 seconds and made her the first Jamaican
entry to win since the inception of the race in
"Saucy Sue" also came in third place in
PHRF in 1989 with her best corrected time of 5
days, 2 hours, 35 minutes and 13 seconds.

coast of Florida and the first to cross the finish
line in Montego Bay. She finished first in IMS
(International Measurement System) Division
with a corrected time of 5 days, 5 hours, 7
minutes and 49 seconds.
The overall performance winner is the boat

place winner in PHRF, by 5 hours, 11 minutes
and 57 seconds; "Collaboration" beat the second
place IMS winner "Brigadoon VI" by 3 hours, 13
minutes and 3 seconds.
