Pompano Seafood Festival is on for April
By GLORIA KATZ
On again, off again, on again. The Pompano
Beach Seafood Festival is now scheduled to run on
April 27th and 28th after a disagreement between the
festival's sponsor, the Greater Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce, and the city of Pompano, has
finally been resolved.
It began when the state would not issue a special
permit for the festival as they did last year. Normally
held in May, the festival was moved to April because
sea turtles' eggs hatch along that section of beach from
May through October. No permits are issued during
those months. This forced the Chamber of Commerce
to move the festival date to April thus necessitating a
request for approval from the City of Pompano Beach.
The city used this situation to try to renegotiate the
contract between them and the CofC. They requested
over 60 percent of the festival's proceeds to go to
charity and that the Chamber cap its profits at $25,000.
Also, the city would no longer contribute $15,000
worth of police protection and garbage pickup.
But the Chamber couldn't go forward and put on a
festival under those conditions, said Festival chairman
"We anticipated certain revenues and expenses,"
Bamman said. "It was the middle of the fiscal year and
the magnitude of the request wasn't something the
Chamber could accomplish this year."
Bamman, an attorney who is also president-elect of
the Chamber, said there was then a constructive effort
on the part of the city and the Chamber. The mayor and
city commissioners were helpful, Bamman said.
"We got-back on track. With the compromise, it'll
be an enhancement to the festival, and yet it still
ensures the chamber has adequate funds and the non-
profits will get more money this year."
Pompano Ledger Publisher Ed Foley, an
outspoken critic of the festival, said money from
chantable events should go to charity and not to
businesses such as the Chamber. Money earned by the
Chamber in the past, says Foley, was funneled into
political gifts to commissioners running for office.
Foley also said some charities even lost money at the
. : ';: ...: -
"What do they (the Chamber) do with the money?
Does it (the festival) benefit the Chamber or the people
of Pompano?" Foley said.
"And civic associations are against it (the festival)
because it becomes a drunken beer bash," Foley added.
Pompano Beach Vice-Mayor Michael Gomes
agreed that the commission wanted the festival more
"I think the city has made its attitude be known,"
Both Gomes and Mayor Nat Braverman said they
were satisfied with the compromise.
"It (the compromise) turned out quite well," said
Mayor Braverman. "The charities are going to get 70
percent, not 50 percent like last year."
Last year the proceeds were split 50-50 between
the Chamber and the charities, with Chamber expenses
deducted off the gross, said Gomes. With the
compromise, the Chamber will deduct the expenses
from their share, which will be 30 percent. Charities
will receive 70 percent this year and 75 percent next
Using last year's figures, this means charities will
get $66,000 and the Chamber will get $28,000. The
$11,000 in expenses would come off the $28,000.
Hopefully, the festival will raise more money this year.
SLast year the city billed for non-cash expenses
including equipment rental charges. This year, says
Bamman, the city will not bill for that.
But the city will still keep the same arrangement
regarding reimbursement for one-half of police, fire
and public works expenses up to $15,000. In this
way, the city is also contributing to the charities, said
Last year, said Bamman, the city wouldn't agree to
boardwalk advertising. This year, the city will allow
ads to provide revenue to pay for the materials
necessary to build an extended boardwalk.
With both the Chamber and city commission
satisfied with the compromise, the Seafood Festival
can now continue to entertain residents, raise money
for charities, and satisfy the needs of the Chamber of
"I think politics got put aside, that everyone was
very fair and that a decision was made in benefit of the
people. It was a good compromise," said Bamman.
A buffet of beachfront entertainment planned
Hungry seafood lovers will be able to shrimp out
at the more than forty restaurants offering delectable
seafood at the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival.
More than 200,000 people are expected at the
Saturday, April 27 and Sunday, April 28 event. There
will be all types of music ranging from jazz to rock
presented on two stages, over 100 arts and crafts
displays and plenty of food. Restaurants signed up

4 Waterfront News April 1991 Letters
Boating public must band together
To The Editor:
I would like to express my opinion concerning
never-ending increasing taxes on boat owners.
Regulations, license fees, registration fees, tag fees,
gasoline taxes, and on top of all these, your local
county boat taxes. It is very obvious that the boating
industry and boating public are being taxed right off
the water. I feel that this is discriminatory, especially
the user fee tax.
I am appealing for support from all those who are
in a position that can apply financial and political
pressure against those who support action that brings
infringement upon the boating public. Boat owners are
consistent voters and they stand together.
Listed below are some suggestions I feel are
A united organization of national, state, local,
marine industries (we have some but they are not
organized or united) the fishing industry, insurance
companies, electronic industry, ships and publications.
Regular publications or notices regarding the
latest boat taxes, etc. Boat people are for real, not just
a ghost number, like so many organizations.
Boat shows, conventions, dealership meetings,
etc. Set up a booth in a very obvious location
providing the most up-to-date information concerning
the boating public. Communication is the key for all
levels of any industry. The boating industry needs to
work together or all related marine industries will
continue to get worse. The boating public and dealers
are tired of being picked on.
Require accountability. To be published annually
of all money collected from the boating public. This
should be done on national, state and local levels. If
the public really knew how, where the money was
going they just might become more involved.
List those political candidates who vote for
taxes, fees, etc.
Require federal, state and local government
using marine taxes be used for those marine parks to
establish facilities for the boating public (ramps,
docks, parking and navigation aids, anchoring
The marine industry establish their own
consultant (for impact studies). There is a definite need
to investigate the background, qualifications,
experience, number of years in the area of research
being conducted. (Actual location.)
Selective law enforcement, instead of new
personnel, new boats, new equipment, and
establishing another bureaucracy. Every time a
problem develops, they want more money, etc. To me
this shows lack of organization and administrative
ability. No one is beyond replacement!
Reader reacts to letter
To The Editor:
Liked [Charles Kanter's] letter very much and will
see to it that it gets in the local paper. [See "Waterway
speed laws protect people, too," page 4, March 1991,

All federal, state and local agencies be required
an annual evaluation accountability. Due to the lack of
job description we have duplication of positions, mass
paper shuffling which leads to the time-cost factor and
the end result, trying to justify their position.
No one asked me to write this letter. I did it
because I felt that as a small boat owner I ought to
express my opinion. I realize that my opinion may fall
on deaf ears, however, I wanted to be able to say I got
involved. I am just a little old small boat owner who is
trying to stay afloat.

Pompano Beach Seafood fest
To the Editor:
The February 1991 issue of Waterfront News
contained an-article having to do with cancellation of
the Pompano Beach Seafood Festival.
As 1991 Seafood Festival Chairman, I am pleased
to report to the Waterfront News that the festival is, in
fact, going to be held the weekend of April 27 and 28,
The Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of
Commerce in co-sponsorship with the city of
Pompano Beach will again present the festival which
will be held at Atlantic Blvd. and the ocean in
Pompano Beach, Florida. The festival benefits
numerous local charities and provides scholarships to
local area high school students. The compromise
agreement unanimously reached by the mayor and city
commissioners of Pompano Beach and the Greater
Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce provides for a
continuation of support by the city by way of police
protection and public works assistance, and also
provides for an enhancement in the benefits to be
derived by local charities.
The assistance of the Waterfront News in
providing its readership with notice of the upcoming
Pompano Beach Seafood Festival for the weekend of
April 27 and 28, 1991 is very much appreciated; this
year's festival should be the best ever!
Fred C. Bamman, I
Long time readers reminisce
To the Editor:
I don't know where the years have gone but it
seems like yesterday that the Waterfront News was
just a "back room" enterprise and look at it today! You
have done a marvelous job in building it into a fine,
worthy newspaper that serves a great many people that
are associated with boating and the waterfront.
Congratulations on a job well done.
G. P. "Matt" and
Editor's note: Matt and Lindy were long-time
residents of the New River aboard their Chris-Craft
Sea-Leste. They recall a time back in 1984-85 when
the Waterfront News rented a back room from a print
shop next door to the New River Post Office. We
published an illustration or two of Matt's back then,
and both he and his wife were very supportive of this
editor as he struggled through the first two years of
being a small business owner.
The Mathersons have since sailed on to
Jacksonville via the Bahamas, maintaining a mail
subscription to this paper.

To the Editor:
My name is Commando Fisherman. I don't know
about you, but I am tired of seeing trash everywhere I
go. While driving to and from work, to the boat ramp,
or walking on the beach, I see plastic bags, aluminum
cans, or other kinds of trash lying about.
I believe that most people don't litter and the rest
don't really mean to.
It has become such a habit to throw trash out the
window or just leave it lying on the ground; maybe
because there wasn't a trashcan nearby.
Trash not only looks bad, it can also hurt wildlife.
Birds can become tangled in the plastic rings of a six-
pack or discarded fishing line and drown or get hung
up in trees. Plastic bags and balloons can kill whales
and sea turtles who sometimes mistake them for a
jellyfish. Most of us have seen, heard, or read about
things like this. And for those who have not, we needed
to let them know that it's not cool to litter.
Now I am going to ask for your help, because
there is a lot of trash out there to be picked up.
Everyday we get out of bed, comb our hair, brush
our teeth and get dressed. Here is another good habit
we want to "pick up" as part of our daily routine.
"Pick up" at least one piece of trash daily. "Pick up"
one piece on your way into the grocery store or mall
(there are trash cans at the entrance to most stores).
"Pick up" one piece of trash while you are at the boat
ramp or docks. "Pick up" one piece of trash while you
are on your evening walk. Heck, take the kids with
you; they count for one too."Pick up" one piece of
trash... I think you get the idea.
Also anytime you are venturing into the great
outdoors, bring a garbage bag with you and take a few
moments to "pick up" some trash. Let's get together
and clean up OUR environment. Remember to recycle
whatever you can.
If everyone would do these things, we CAN make
a difference. It only takes a moment of our time. Take
pride in Florida. Make it a habit, "Pick it up."

For a few weeks I've had a clicking or banging
noise when I tried to start my engine. As the engine
spun over it would make this noise and when the
motor started it would disappear.. I was told it was the
solenoid and I repaired it but the noise was still there.
Is it in the starter or in the engine? Any idea?
You say that when the engine runs it runs quiet -
no noise only when you go to start it. The noise or
clicking is there only when turning the engine over.
The noise can be in the starter or the bendix drive on
the starter or the flywheel gear on the engine.
Remove starter first and check drive on starter for
damage. Then slowly pry flywheel around and check
for broken or damaged teeth on it. Do not delay!
Read next question.
I have a 15 HP Evinrude twin which was run hot
and cut out. While my buddy was running it the engine
cut off. He said the engine was hot and it shut off.
After it cooled down he started it and got home and
when he shut it down it would not start again.
He would like to fix it but don't know where to
start, and what's wrong.
The reason the engine stopped was lack of cooling
water. The small stream of water coming out of the
rear of the motor is an indication of water circulation.
No stream no water no go. Some engines will cut
out when hot and some will seize and cause internal
First check if engine will turn over. If engine is
free and not seized or jammed, check compression for
valves that are not hung up. If seized you need major
work to check for scoring or breakage.
I would pull the lower unit to check water pump
for impellor and housing problems. Most likely that
was the problem in the beginning.
I have an oil leak from the bottom of my engine. I
wiped the bottom clean and using a mirror like I once
read in your column located the leak from bottom of
the oil filter. Replaced same with new filter according
to instructions but leak is still there. Tightening etc.
does not help.
Can it be the oil pan gasket? Or what?
Your oil filter screws into a housing or oil filter
base that is bolted to the lower block. This has an oil
filter adapter gasket that can leak causing your
I don't know what engine you have in your boat
but that can be your oil leak. Clean around this adapter
and use the mirror to spot your oil leak.
I have an engine that has jumped timing three times
so far. I would like to know what is causing this and
what to look for. I was told it was the timing chain, but
that is a big job and I would like to check that first.
Waiting for your advice.
First take a compression test and if that checks out
the chain is not at fault. I would pull the distributor and
check the gear on end of shaft. If pin is sheared and
you can move gear, that's it. Replace pin and retime. If
cam shaft is damaged you have major work and call in
a good mechanic.
-When I go to start my boat it will not start. I hear
a whirring or spinning noise and that's it. My battery
is fully charged, lights, horn, etc. all OK, but engine
will not turn over.
All kinds of advice but would like to hear from
you about this.
A lot of boat problems are caused by well-meaning
advice. Go to a good mechanic for help. I would first
check my starter drive. The starter is receiving juice
and it spins but the drive is not engaging. It could be
jammed or broken. They are easy to repair or replace
once you get the starter out. Inspect the teeth on the
flywheel gear as they can cause this trouble if they are
broken or nicked.
Any spaces on this gear and the starter will just
spin and not engage.

Shady Banks, a starlit landing
By SUSAN B. PETERSON
The real McCoy visits Starlite Landing
Starlite Landing? Such a romantic name for a part
of Shady Banks that is on the New River, almost in the
shadow of the 1-95 bridge over the river. George
Hartman, whose original Ft. Lauderdale home was
located where 1-95 is now, invited us to his riverfront
home in Starlite Landing to tell us stories of building
sailboats on the river in the '40s while living in a tent.
Starlite Landing has been a unique gathering place for
sailboat people who were anchored at Sailboat Bend,
and found permanent accommodations further up the
New River at the Landing, which Gil Sayward, a
sailor and writer for Motorboating Magazine, had
purchased in the thirties. He sold a number of lots to
sailing friends of his, and some of the most
outstanding boating people from Ft. Lauderdale's
recent history still live there. Across from Starlite
Landing you can see the docks and sheds of
Lauderdale Yacht Basin.
That was where, said George Hartman, the
Arethusa was docked in the early '40s. She was a 115-
foot motoryacht, and on board lived a beautiful young
woman and her boyfriend, Bill McCoy, a huge man,
perhaps in his eighties, with a strong interest in boats.
McCoy was the famous retired rumrunner who made a
fortune during Prohibition carrying first quality liquor
on his schooners from the Bahamas to Long Island and
New York Harbor. Arethusa was the name of
McCoy's most famous schooner, a black two-master
which he had purchased for $21,000 in Rockland,
Maine, after the first few successful smuggling trips on
his other schooner, the Marshall. McCoy became
famous for delivering top quality goods, hence, "the
real McCoy" came to mean the genuine article. Below
are excerpts from our March 14th interview with
George and Mrs.Hartman at Starlite Landing:
WFN: What was the Starlite?
GH: The Starlite was Gil Sayward's sailboat.
She was somewhere in the 41-foot-42-foot bracket.
Gil bought this property the whole Landing and
built his house in 1939, and he came and parked the
original Starlite here. Gil came from Boston with his
wife and one son, who is Mike Sayward, who now
lives two doors over here.
Q: In the '40s there wasn't much out here in
Shady Banks, was there?
GH: No, there wasn't. And, of course, in Starlite
Landing there was only Gil Sayward's house and
Betty and I lived in a tent over there on the boatyard
property while we built our house. At the same time as
I was working on the boat, I was building a house,
and we lived in that until 24 years ago, when the
highway finally decided they were going to need that
property to build the road. In the '40s this whole area
was a citrus grove, principally in the area where the
Hortt School is it was all the way from there, I
believe, up to Davie Boulevard. This property here
was not part of it this was a truck farm. We still had
what was left of it in our yard.
Of course, Starlite Landing got its name from the
original Starlite that Sayward came south in. It was
named Starlite when he bought it.
Cypress Landing is the area just upriver from the
Davie Boulevard bridge, and we built another big boat
up there the Prospector. That was before Starlite was
built that was the first one I worked on on the
riverbank, and that was owned by a fellow by the
name of Jack Harper. That was a Concordia design,
long waterline boat, 42-foot, and a monster of a boat.
In those days it used to be pretty easy to get good
lumber. She was framed with bent live oak. She had a
lot of exotic timbers in her backbone.
The second Starlite? Gil sold the first one and had
another one designed by Charley Rhodes, and
Summerfield and I formed a partnership and built a
shed here, and equipped it with tools, and we started
to build the Starlite and we were setting up her-
backbone and Summerfield and I had a falling out. He
left and went down and bought the present
Summerfield's, and I stayed and hired another fellow
and we built the boat. It took close to a year.
Q: How much did you get for building it?
GH: Oh, by the hour. Don't have any idea.
However, this lot was part of my payment for it. Gil
Sayward did a long series on the building of the
Starlite the continuous name of the articles was: "No
One Knew A Thing Or Two." That was in
Motorboating Magazine, and it would have been,
maybe, '41. While we were building the Starlite, of
course, we had people in here watching us work all the
time, and they'd come and hang around for an hour or
two or three, and swap stories.
Q: Did they come by water?
GH: Yeah. In those days you almost couldn't get
here by land, it was just a little rut road that came down
along the riverbank from Cypress Landing.
Anyway, one of the people that got to coming
every day was this old fellow, he would have been in
his eighties then, I think, and he said his name was Bill
McCoy. He got to telling us about as how he had this
big schooner, and that he'd go the Bahamas and load
up with liquor, and he'd take it up off the coast and off
of Long Island, and these little boats would come and
carry the booze ashore.
Summerfield's boatyard celebrated its 50th
anniversary in 1990. Manager Tom Correll says they
plan to be there another fifty years. Tom told us that
there had been a boatyard at the site since 1933. Henry
Summerfield opened his boatyard in 1940, and aerial
photos from the early fifties show a very undeveloped

Koch finished Hero there. Having lived aboard an old
schooner at Summerfield's docks in the late 70s, we
remember the Jungle Queen going by and the
announcer saying: "Wave to the hippies, folks."
Long before Starlite Landing and Summerfield's
Boatyard, there were several distinguished part-time
residents of Shady Banks. The houseboat Wanderer
was a favorite winter residence of its owner, Boston
millionaire Charles B. Cory and his pal, actor Joe
Jefferson, "the famous Rip Van Winkle of the theatre,"
in the 1890s. Jefferson and Corey accompanied Henry
Flagler and others on the first train ride to Ft..
Lauderdale from West Palm Beach in 1896. Jefferson
persuaded Corey to bring his houseboat down from
Palm Beach. It was opulent a white 90-foot
sternwheeler with a dozen bedrooms, lounges,
recreation rooms and a piano. It docked, at first, at
Frank Stranahan's. Former presidents and admirals
were among the celebrity visitors, as well as "wild
actresses" on vacation, invited by Joe Jefferson.
Sleepy Ft. Lauderdale was amazed by their parties on
Later on, Corey, who was. also a famed
ornithologist; gave property on the river in Shady
Banks to Joe Jefferson and a friend, Louis Church.
The Wanderer. was docked there. In 1906, Jefferson's
widow, Sarah Jefferson, sold 19.5 acres of that
property to Louis Church's brother, Theodore. The
Wanderer slowly rotted away, until it was wrecked in
the 1926 hurricane.
Old neighbors are sometimes like old friends -
they change over time, but their features are still
recognizable, familiar and welcome. Shady Banks,
because of its relative isolation, has changed less than
other waterfront neighborhoods. Down by Starlite
Landing or over at the boatyard, one can still imagine
how it was when Bill McCoy was a neighbor across

Top Florida marine biologists form research sharing alliance
DANIA Fourteen of Florida's top marine
biologists met March 14-15, 1991, at the
Oceanographic Center of Nova University to form a
coalition that will combine findings of individual
fishery recruitment research statewide to better
understand Florida's fishery recruitment.
Recruitment is the process by which fish grow
from the early stages of life to adulthood.
Understanding this process has enormous potential for
managing Florida's many valuable fisheries.
"By integrating our findings, we can maximize the
results of our research and make the most of our
financial resources. With state and federal research
funding dwindling, it is imperative that we get the
most productivity for our research dollars," said Dr.
Gary S. Klepper, Ph.D, associate professor of the
Nova University Oceanographic Center.
The two-day meeting kicked off with a Sea Grant-
sponsored seminar entitled "Variability and Vital Rates:
Causes of Fluctuations and Potential for Regulation in
the Early Life of Fishes" by speaker Dr. Edward
Houde, a professor at Chesapeake Biological
Laboratory at the University of Maryland, which
addressed the implications of regulating stocks and
ensuring long-term resource availability to the
commercial and recreational fishing industries.
Throughout their visit, the marine biologists met to
organize and develop a sense of unity and purpose
among researchers and managers in Florida whose
interests lie in some aspect of fish recruitment ecology.
Goals include: focusing recruitment research on
several priority topics; enhancing research productivity
by developing resource sharing and interdisciplinary
interactions; and networking and communicating
within and between disciplines.
"We would like to have this group serve as a focal
point from which technical advice might be obtained by
administrators," said Kleppel. "It is expected that this
group of marine biologists, acting as a newly-formed
coalition, will develop attainable goals to meet
research, education and management needs within the
state of Florida. We seek to immediately involve more
qualified scientists in this effort. Eventually, we will
be a community working together, rather than just a

PB county voters pass 1
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Voters struck a blow for saving some of the last
remnants of Palm Beach County's natural ecosystem
by passing an environmental referendum on the issue
By an overwhelming margin, Palm Beach County
residents authorized the county to sell $100-million
worth of bonds to help finance the acquisition of as
many as 14 designated environmentally sensitive land
sites. These parcels, some of which are wetlands or
border the Intracoastal, are located throughout the
county, from Jupiter to Boca Raton. After visiting
several sites, the Lands Acquisition Committee,
composed of county citizens, recommended these 14
sites for protection from development.
The preservation issue had its beginnings in 1982,
as environmentalists from the Coalition of Wilderness
Islands began a lobbying effort to preserve pristine
Florida habitat. The issue had been dismantled or
delayed for several years, until last December, when
the county commission agreed to put the preservation
referendum on the March 12 ballot.
Joanne Davis, former co-chair of the Citizens for
Environmental Land Preservation, remarked that it
took a solid two years of aggressive lobbying to
convince the county commission to allow the issue to
come before the voters.
Davis stated, "The fact that this referendum passed
by a 2-1 margin is a good indication of what the public
sentiment is right now; people are in a panic and if we
let development continue at a breakneck pace, we
won't have anything left representing old Florida."
Davis added that trying to regulate developers has
been a difficult task, and that land purchased through
public ownership will allow natural lands to be
preserved for generations.
Now that the bond issue has passed, the county
will be working on setting up the sale of the bonds.
Meanwhile, the Land Selection Committee will be
working with the county commission in coming up
with recommendations as to which sites will be
purchased first. There is no guarantee, however, that
all 14 sites will be purchased.
The 14 sites encompass 31,000 acres that are
owned by a multitude of families, businesses,
individuals, and partnerships, making acquisition a
challenge. With a total assessed value of $314 million,
additional funds will be needed to procure' all the

designated sites. To help obtain additional funding,
Palm Beach CCounty and the Department of
Environmental Resource Management will be asking
the state for matching funds.
To help pay for the bonds, homeowners will be
charged about $15 per year, which will then decrease
as the county's population and tax base grows.
Once the sites have been obtained, they will be
accessible to the public through the creation of passive
parks or nature areas which will allow residents to go
hiking, bird watching, and researching.
Environmentalists were amazed that the issue
passed during what has become a difficult time for
many segments of the economy.
Karen Olson, vice-president of the Royal Palm
Audubon Society in Boca Raton, stated, "A lot of
people in Palm Beach County worked together to get
this thing passed, but a lot of important work is still
ahead of us."
Davis added, "I feel this is truly a turning point of
this county in terms of being responsible for the
quality of life here."

Be prepared for Dade County hurricane
By HANK JONES
Plan your Dade County hurricane evacuation route
and refuge now.
Practice your plan now.
Prepare to execute the plan now.
Finally, pray that you won't have to implement
your plan this year or in years to come. Chances are it
won't work now, or in the foreseeable future.
Dade County's hurricane evacuation Flotilla Plan
probably is dead in the water.
The Miami River does nothold great promise of a
safe refuge for recreational boats in the event of a
hurricane, the daydreams of skippers notwithstanding.
There simply isn't room along the river's banks
for a visiting boatman to tie-up or snug-down to ride
out a hurricane.
"In the two counties there are 99,000 registered
boats," said Captain Mike Lamphear of the Florida
Marine Patrol, speaking of Dade and Broward.
"I have serious doubts that there is a safe harbor,"
he added. Along the Miami River growth has brought
a shortage of shoreline space available to boaters.
That raises the question: where does a boater
looking for a hurricane hole go as the storm
Remember that a class 3 hurricane at the middle
of the scale will bring winds of 111 to 130 miles an
hour with a storm surge of nine to 12 feet.
The ocean will sweep across barrier islands like
Miami Beach and Fort Lauderdale's beach to mingle
with waters of Biscayne Bay and the Intracoastal
Waterway. Boats traditionally docked in these areas
will have to be moved. -
The Flotilla Plan, designed to move boats upriver
safely and efficiently, does not promise safe haven for
the boat at the end of the trip. The Flotilla Plan gets
you there; finding a secure place for the boat is the
problem of the skipper.
That's true in Dade County for the Miami River
and in Broward for the New River the only two
rivers with Flotilla Plan programs.
No matter the perception a boater may have of the
Flotilla Plan in a community, the plan is designed to
move boats efficiently and in a timely manner to a place
where a skipper can find safety.
The flotilla gets the boat up river. Moving a boat in
a fleet is not. for the boater's convenience but to
prevent frequent and unnecessary openings of bridges
so that road travel won't be obstructed for those
evacuating by car.
Once upriver the skipper confronts his real
Long gone are the days of a bucolic community in
South Florida where a boat could move close to
undeveloped shoreline, drop a couple of anchors to
stay off the bank, and tie off securely to overhanging
trees perhaps even run lines to the far shore of the
waterway for extra security.
Fleeing to Broward County offers no alternative.
Although Broward's hurricane evacuation Flotilla Plan
remains alive, the Florida Marine Patrol and U.S. Cost
Guard are not likely to participate. Marine patrol boats
of the Broward sheriffs office and Fort Lauderdale
police are apt to be far too busy to implement the
Flotilla Plan for Fort Lauderdale's New River, and
that's the only navigable waterway with no fixed
bridges for boaters to use to move east of U.S. 1.
The handwriting, then, also is on the wall in
There is no safe harbor for some 99,000 registered
boats along with cruising craft and boats from other
counties and states domiciled in the two counties.
Upstream along the Miami River there simply
aren't enough places for boats to tie up. The same is
true on Broward's New River.
Waterfront property owners want to tie up their
own craft or accommodate a friend or relative.
A year ago waterfront property owners along the
New River were reported to be negotiating hurricane
docking privileges for as much as $500 for a single
storm not the season.
Assume, however, that a diligent and prudent
skipper finds and avails himself of a dock along the
river bank at which to tie up.
The Central and South Florida Flood Control
District already has warned that a wet hurricane might
produce inland flooding that would cause district
officials to open flood control structures and allow
high water to flow to the sea.
It is estimated that the water would increase
surface levels by only a few inches, but it also is
projected that the leading edge of the water flow could
be travelling at 15 to 20 miles per hour.
That might be enough force to tear boats loose
from a safe haven along the shore. Or, the swiftly
flowing water could carry debris downstream to crash
There's also a need to think of the days following
the hurricane as well. Presumably one's boat must be
recovered from its hurricane refuge and moved to its
permanent anchorage or dock. All this will happen at a
time when roads even waterways may be closed by
wreckage or natural causes like felled trees blocking a

36th annual Miami-Key
Largo hits the water
By M.G. SWIFT
Three hundred sailboats are expected by the Miami
Yacht Club to start the 1991 Miami-Key Largo Race in
April. The 36th annual regatta is sanctioned as a long-
distance sailing event by the Florida Sailing
Association, open to all sailing yachts 14 feet or over.
"All sailboats multihull, monohull, cruising and
class boats are welcome to participate," said a race
organizer with the yacht club.
The 45-mile race will begin with a single start at 8
a.m. Saturday, April 20. The boats will start on the
south side of Miami's Rickenbacker Causeway and
finish at the entrance to Jewfish Creek in Key Largo,
race officials reported.
"Three-of-a-kind yachts will constitute a class,"
the officials said; "however, in keeping with the spirit
of the 'free-for-all, anything goes' tradition of the race,
class rule will not be in effect. All boats are welcome to
use the extra rigs, sails, crew, etc., to go faster. This is
the race to experiment with your wildest ideas,"
concluded a spokesman for the race which first sailed
A cocktail party and a cash bar will be held at the
Miami Yacht Club at 7 p.m., Thursday, April 18.
Skipper packets will be available at the party.
The Trophy Presentation Party will also be held at
the clubhouse on Watson Island at 7 p.m., April 27,
the Saturday following the race.

Coast Guard's w
By HANK JONES
Not all complaints merit action- gelco crazing, for
example, is not a safety problem. Steering failures,
however, are considered serious. there is special
danger from fuel tank installations, and/or fire.
When investigating complaints, however, USCG
Inspector David Churchill often finds that someone
other than the manufacturer has made changes in the
"About 75 reasonably serious complaints arrive at
the Miami office each year. Again most of the major
manufacturers build a good boat, so it's the smaller
builder producing from 100 to 1,000 boats a year
without engineering and quality-control operations
where defects are found," Churchill said.
"Most of the problems could be prevented. All a
builder has to do is come to me for help in advance -
and they all know they can do this. I help if they
simply ask, and most builders do use the help."
Hull failures constitute most of the valid
complaints that come to Churchill's office and a lot
of times complaints reach the Coast Guard only after
the dealer and manufacturers have failed to respond to
the unhappy boat owner.
"Generally we find that faulty hulls are the result
of materials. We find a lack of material a quarter-inch
instead of a half-inch. Poor workmanship can produce
a bad layup of fiberglass," Churchill said.
"Costs usually are the builder's motivation."
Complaints about poor laminating are not
unommon, but there are few complaints about through-
"The average small manufacturer today is simply
an assembler, someone who buys parts and lays up
hulls. Some smaller manufacturers even buy hulls. A
little builder who has a mold may build for several
people who put different names on the boats."
A significant number of complaints come from a
dealer's failure to match hull and trailer properly, with
the result that the boat suffers.
"When a boat is improperly aligned on a trailer it
can bounce around until the back of the boat is
broken," Churchill said.
"A lot of owners run the boat aground, then feel
there is a problem with the hull. When this happens
even a glass boat will open up. It's not a product]
problem, it's a misuse of the product."
watchdog of bumbling boatwrights
Investigation of fuel tank problems usually revolve
around materials or workmanship, seldom the tank
Cleat complaints as often as not result in the owner
being advised that cleats are for mooring, not towing,
pointed out Churchill, a former boat builder who also
served in the U.S. Navy.
Sailboats usually produce problems with the hull,
and seldom focus on the rigging.
Most builders welcome Churchill's arrival at a
plant with his checklist. Many manufacturers who
want to produce a safe product will admit to
welcoming Churchill's arrival, complete with his
Every manufacturer who registers with the Coast
Guard is added to a mailing list, and the manufacturer
is kept up to date on regulations through mailings.
Corrections of violations may take a number of
routes. It's a matter of compliance, but a builder can
reach compliance by any method.
"Many- smaller manufacturers request inspections
to determine if they are in compliance, especially with
respect to fuel, electrical and ventilation systems,"
A typical inspection can last from two to four
hours. There is a question-and-answer session in the
office, as well as a plant tour.
The Manual of Manufacturing Standards for
Recreational Boats is complete, detailed, and illustrated
to make compliance a simple one, two, three matter of
following instructions. There are question and answer
forms to be completed to insurance compliance.
Regulations and packages of notices updating
procedures and requirements are mailed to boat
For example, under the Level Flotation
Compliance Guideline alone there are 140 pages of
information with a 12-page appendix. Included are:
introduction, reference, summary, calculations,
applications (flotation material requirements), materials
(flotation materials), installation, testing and test
procedures, quality control, forms and an index.
Information is so specific and detailed that data
sheets provide formulae so that mathematic
calculations simply need be carried out and entered on
the appropriate sheets.
Even test-procedure photographs are required in
Guidelines for manufacturers even produce
information on businesses that supply tools or
equipment required to process materials under the
Each boat built, for example, must carry a capacity
label, and nine manufacturers of labels are listed in the
manufacturing standards guide.'
Churchill is quick to point out that the manual
merely sets standards with which design and
construction criteria must comply it is neither a
design reference work nor a construction handbook.
When standards call for a watertight bulkhead the
manufacturer must design and build a bulkhead that is
watertight and constructed to safety standards.
The life David Churchill saves, as he makes his
rounds, could be yours. He and his associates deserve
a nod of appreciation as a skipper buys a new boat or
simply starts a Sunday afternoon cruise with the
knowledge the boat has been safety-inspected.

Alain Gautier, spectacular BOC third-stage winner
PUNTA DEL ESTE, March 20 The winner of
The BOC Challenge' 1990-91 could be back in
Newport on April 28.
That would be 28 days after the start from Punta
del Este of the final, 6,000-mile stage of the 27,000-
mile voyage that began on September 15.
The favorite will be the Frenchman Alain Gautier,
28, who will start with a lead of some twenty-one-and-
a-half hours over Christophe Auguin, another
The restart from Punta del Este, in the River Plate
Estuary, is at noon on March 30.
Gaurier's Generali Concorde was first across the
finish lines in Cape Town and Punta.
Alain set a record for the first stage but was
relegated to fourth in the standings due to a penalty
imposed before the start.
He had failed to have Generali Concorde in
Newport on schedule for scrutineering.
Alain was third in Sydney and his time to Punta
del Este, Uruguay, will stand as a record because it is
the first time The BOC has stopped in Uruguay.

Marine flea market expands for '91
DANIA Recognized as one of the largest events
of its type in the world, the Marine Flea Market will
feature even more sales areas and a multitude of new
sellers when it returns to Dania Jai-Alai on April 19th,
20th and 21st for the 13th consecutive year, according
to organizer Al Behrendt. The Jai-Alai parking lot is
transformed into the world's largest nautical swap
shop attracting sellers and buyers from around the
country and across the Caribbean. "For sellers, it's the
ideal place to liquidate those marine items that have
accumulated as a result of model changes, over-
ordering, trade-ins, obsolescence or minor damage,"
said Behrendt. For boat owners and anyone with an
interest in things nautical, it's a bargain hunter's dream-
"In its thirteen year history, the Marine Flea
Market has never had more value to the marine
industry than it will this year," said Al Behrendt,
originator of the annual three-day event. "In today's
economy, marine companies can ill afford to carry
obsolete or excess material inventory from one model
year to the next; yet, model year change-overs,
optimistic volume ordering and items returned for
minor damage all translate into a material inventory
that cannot be sold through normal channels. The
Dania Marine Flea Market has, since 1979, provided
the ideal vehicle for bringing buyer and seller together
in an atmosphere of friendly, collective bargaining."
This outstanding example of the free enterprise
system has established the Marine Flea Market as the
premier event of its type anywhere in the world.
Marine eq uipment, used boats, fishing gear and other
boating related items are bought and sold through a
system of dickering and dealing. Last year's Marine
Flea Market reached record proportions with buyers
occupying more than 560 booths. This year, the
number of sales booths has been expanded in an
attempt to accommodate the waiting list of sellers,
"All concession areas are spacious and provide
tables and chairs to allow everyone the opportunity to
browse through the nearly ten acres of sales booths in
a relaxed and casual atmosphere," he said.
Boat owners love a good deal and the Marine Flea
Market sellers enjoy turning their unwanted marine
items into cash. The Flea Market allows boat and
accessory manufacturers the opportunity to liquidate
large quantities of teak, upholstery, instruments and
accessories that they would not be able to sell through
normal channels and at low prices!
Groups of private individuals and boat clubs rent
space to sell the "nautical treasures" found while
cleaning our garages and dock boxes of accumulated
boat parts and fishing tackle.
.Boat dealers and private individuals have found the
Marine Flea Market to be an excellent place to sell trade-

River group forms private port co-op
By SANDI BEARE
The Miami River Marine Group (MRMG) recently
formed a "Private Port cooperative," to monitor river
activities and coordinate business operations with
enforcement agencies on the Miami River.
More than 35 government agencies oversee
regulations of port activities, with none having overall
authority. The MRMG plans to change that with the
hiring of a "river coordinator," who will act as a
liaison between government agencies and the MRMG
members. The Group also plans to hire an
environmental engineer to conduct best management
practices and pollution control plans for all members.
The membership of the MRMG consists of an
alliance of shipping terminals, stevedore companies,
tugboat operators and drydock facilities, along with
related businesses who have joined together to keep the
Miami River a "working river." The group's funding
will come from assessments of its members. These
companies are committed to having a say in their own
regulation, and most companies will pay annual fees of
$10,000 to keep the river in their own hands.
The MRMG has the support of the city of Miami,
Dade County and the Port of Miami, U.S. Coast
Guard and the U.S. Customs Service iifits endeavors.
some officials from those bodies will be honorary

allowing governmental input into the group.
The Private Port Cooperative's first order of
business will be to create an oil pollution cooperative
to help contain any oil spills which may occur on the
Miami River, and to work with the coast Guard and
Dade County authorities to design a "Private Port
Manual." this manual will include voluntary rules and
regulations dealing with such issues as cargo loading,
river traffic, towing procedures, and others.
The MRMG holds monthly "Issues Workshops"
on the last Wednesday of each month at the City Club
of Miami at 8:00 a.m. this series deals with political,
economic, and security issues, and how they relate to
the future of the Miami River.

Manatees & Marine-industry lobbyists on collision course
TALLAHASSEE Marine-industry lobbyists and
manatee advocates once again appear to be on a
collision course over the state's policy on marina
development and expansion.
The dispute surfaced in January because the state
is considering making its current policy a formal rule,
which requires public feedback. Both sides seized the
.Proponents for the gentle and endangered marine
mammal are calling for a halt to the construction and
expansion of marinas in 13 key counties, at least for
the time being. They say a moratorium is needed
because of lax enforcement of manatee-protection
measures at new and expanded marinas.
But the state's $3.5 billion marine industry has
countered with a proposed rule that would make it
easier to build and expand marinas. Industry
representatives say the state's current policy borders
on the Draconian, handcuffs the state's third-biggest
industry and has little to do with helping manatees.
The policy was adopted by former Gov. Bob
Martinez and the cabinet in October 1989. It restricts
marina development and expansion in 13 manatee-
populated counties. Only one powerboat slip for every
100 feet of shoreline is allowed at marinas with more
than five slips.
The restriction is rescinded after each county
passes a state-approved manatee-protection and
manatee-siting plan. It doesn't apply to marina
applications submitted before October 1989.
So far, neither proposal is playing well with the
state Department of Natural Resources. Agency
officials say they must straddle a thin line to balance
environmental interests with economic interests.
Pam McVety, DNR's director of marine resources,
and Pat Rose, manatee coordinator, say marine
industry lobbyists exaggerate the economic ripple
effect of the 1-to-100 policy. However, neither rule
out the possibility that the policy could be loosened.
While both think marina compliance issue is a
serious problem, they say a moratorium may be too
Sometime in the next six weeks, the two sides will
meet in a, workshop. After that, the proposed rule -
whatever it is will be subject to public comment at a
series of hearings around the state before returning to
Gov. Lawton Chiles and the cabinet for a vote.
"We never fought the idea of protecting the
rascals," said Wade Hopping, a Tallahassee lobbyist
who represents the Chicago-based National Marine

Manufacturers Association. "We've fought the idea of
blanket protection. What does the number of boat
slips have to do with protecting manatees?"
More than anything, Hopping argues, the policy is
a thinly veiled gambit to block construction of new
marinas "under the guise of protection of manatees."
He likens it to reducing the number of traffic
accidents by getting rid of parking spaces.
He sent his suggested rule to kill the 1-to-100
policy to DNR in February. Under his proposal, DNR
would review any new marina construction or
expansion involving more than five slips to make sure
it would not harm manatees. But there would be no
limit on the number of slips.
The argument for restricting the number of slips to
help Florida's manatees goes like this: marinas make it
easier for more powerboats to be in the water and boat
collisions are the biggest threat to manatees among
Also, marinas can spoil the environment, which
can hurt manatees and other wildlife.
In her call for a moratorium, made in a letter to
DNR last month, Judith Delaney Vallee, executive
director of the Save The Manatee Club, said there is a
direct correlation between the number of boats and the
number of manatee deaths from boats.
When there are only 1,500 manatees remaining in
Florida, a loss of even a few dozen to collisions is
significant, Vallee said.
She also argues that state and federal officials are
not enforcing manatee protection measures at marinas
because the system is overloaded.
State and federal wildlife officials agree they don't
really know whether marinas are complying because
they don't have time or staff to check.

Marine algae bloom goes radical
By ROSEMARY SULLIVANT
Scientists studying coccolithophores microscopic
marine algae which take carbon from the atmosphere
and send it as harmless sediment to the ocean floor -
were surprised by what they saw last year in the Gulf
of Maine. The annual bloom of coccolithophores in
1990 differed radically from those in 1989, 1988, and
previous years. Now researchers have more questions
than ever about these tiny organisms which play an
important role in the global carbon cycle.
Coccolithophores are round, single-celled
organisms about 7-8 microns across. Each one is
covered with 10-20 disks of pure white calcium
carbonate, which it sheds periodically. No one knows
why coccolithophores produce these disks of calcium
carbonate, how many they produce, or how quickly.
What is known is that coccolithophores may be the
means by which large amounts of atmospheric carbon
is transferred to the bottom of the oceans. This amount
is impossible to measure, however, without knowing
much more about the basic biology of the organisms.
When the algae blooms, the white disks turn the
water a milky white. They also create areas of high
reflectivity, which are visible on satellite images. It
was satellite images from the late 1970s and early
1980s which first indicated the magnitude of these
blooms. Scientists now use satellite images to monitor
and locate blooms.
"The Gulf of Maine is one of the few areas of the
world where coccolithophores have been studied
intensively," says William Balch, professor of marine
biology at the University of Miami Rosenstiel School
of Marine and Atmospheric Science. 'Typically there
is a large-scale bloom in June and July that covers
about 50,000 square kilometers. But last year we
estimate that the bloom covered only 2,000 to 4,000
What was even more surprising was the location of
the 1990 bloom. Instead of growing in the nutrient-
poor surface waters above deep, stratified areas of the
Gulf as they had in previous years, in 1990
coccolithophores bloomed in the relatively shallow,
well-mixed waters of the Georges Bank.
"We had assumed that coccolithophores were
likely to grow in surface waters where other plants had
previously used most of the available nutrients and a
density boundary prevented nutrients from moving up
from deeper waters," says Balch. "But last year, we
found coccolithophores growing in a mixed
environment clearly competing with other algae."
Balch was also surprised by the results of his
laboratory studies in which he found that cultures of
coccolithophores were limited in growth not by the
amount of nitrogen available to them, which is usually
the case, but by the amount of carbon. "We're not
used to thinking of carbon limited growth in the
ocean," says Balch, who is continuing to explore this
possibility. He is also working on studies of the
reproductive cycle of coccolithophores, about which
little is known. "We can't understand the population
dynamics of these organisms without understanding
how they reproduce."

"Reef Rescue Days" set in Miami April 4 to April 7
MIAMI For the second consecutive year, a three-
day fundraising even for reef conservation will be held
April 4th through April 7th at a Miami dive shop. Last
year's very successful event generated $2600 to
benefit Project ReefKeeper, the affiliate of the
American Littoral Society exclusively dedicated to the
protection of coral reefs.
This year's Reef Rescue Days extravaganza will
include a dive gear auction, dive travel raffle, reef
cleanup dives, a dockside barbecue, seminars on
conservation and equipment, and door prizes.
Reef Rescue Days kicks off at 4 p.m. Friday,
April 5th, with an in-store punch party where divers
will be able to meet and talk with Project ReefKeeper
Conservation Associates. Seminars, slide shows and
door prize giveaways will be held throughout
Saturday, April 6th at Urge 2 Dive Center in Miami.
The dive gear auction will get undetwayat 5 p.m.
on Saturday, April 6th. Auction items will include
equipment donated by major manufacturers.
Dive boat services donated for the Sunday, April.
7th morning reef cleanup will operate from Sunset
Marina in Miami Beach aboard Starship Enterprise.
Participating divers will be treated to a dockside
barbecue upon their return from thetrip.
All proceeds from the dive gear auction, raffle and
reef cleanup fee charter fees will be donated to Project
"Last year's Reef Rescue Days was a huge
success," commented Project ReefKeeper Director
Alexander Stone. "This time, we anticipate that
hundreds of divers will come to participate, have fun

Delray sea turtle studies
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Studies completed by a researcher at the University
of Florida's Center for Sea Turtle Research concluded
that whether the street lights are on or off along State
Road A1A at Delray Beach has little effect on turtle
Delray's beach lights were turned off last year
during turtle nesting season because they were thought
to be the main cause of hatchling deaths from
It was recommended that low pressure sodium
vapor bulbs be used in streetlighting as the most
acceptable alternative to regular lighting, although the
low pressure bulbs also have the potential to disrupt
turtle hatchlings (based on current research).
Delray Beach installed the low pressure bulbs last
year, but it's unclear whether or not the lights will be
allowed to be used in the upcoming turtle nesting
