Lobster season 1991 is set to begin. The annual
two-day sport diving season this year was on Saturday
and Sunday, July 27th and 28th. The regular lobster
season begins in earnest, August 6th. It will run until
midnight March 31, 1992.
This year divers will have to have the saltwater
fishing license, plus the special lobster stamp attached
to the license. The laws, as always, will be enforced
by the Florida Marine Patrol.
Lauri Homer, divemaster and owner of a local
dive shop, reminds us that it is incumbent upon all
divers to be aware of the rules before they take that
giant stride off the rear of the dive platform.
In reviewing some of the rules, Homer states that
each diver will have to have a lobster gauge with him,
or her, in the water at all times. The carapace, or shell
part of the lobster, must measure at least 3" in length,
and the lobster must be brought back to the dock in one
piece. This allows the lobster to be properly inspected.
No female lobsters with eggs can be brought up.
Don't be surprised to suddenly spot another diver
swimming up to you underwater, signalling you he
wants to inspect your catch bag. He could very well be
one of the state's Marine Patrol officers. For those of
us who genuinely care about this state and its natural
resources, we applaud their work. Most veteran
divers appreciate the incredible job they do, and only
wish that there were many more officers out there to
watch over the ever-increasing volume of sport divers
who hit the water each year.
The lobsters must be captured by hand, or,
preferably with the use of a tickle stick and small net.
The tickle stick gently prods the lobster out of his or
her home without sticking your hand into the coral reef;
the net scoops up the lobster without tearing off any of
its antennae in case it is a female with eggs or a short
which will have to be released.,
The tickle stick and net procedure has other merits.
It keeps the divers hands off the reef, which should
never be touched; it also protects the divers hands from
a moray eel bite. The wary moray eel is usually very
shy, but sticking a hand into a coral reef could mean
trouble; the eel will protect his home. Their bite will
cause severe pain and possible damage to the hand of
the intruding diver.
Those of us who have made this mistake in our
warrior/diver days and paid the price in blood and torn
skin, can tell you first hand about the pain and the
stitches, not to mention the strange looks you get in the
emergency room as the nurse quizzes you about being
"attacked" by a sea monster.
In my case, the 'sea monster' was only protecting
his home. I was the transgressor, or sea monster if
Man is truly a strange creature.
Divemaster Homer also states that each licensed
diver is allowed six lobsters per day, or 24 per boat,
whichever number is greater. The professional dive
instructors and boat captains who take the divers out
on their boats for a living generally need little watching;
their living depends upon keeping the reef alive and
crawling with thorny creatures that are good to eat, and
exciting to catch. It is the private boats, staffed with
unknowing, or uncaring divers, that are the usual
Another important factor is your diving gear. If
you take care of it, it will take care of you. Many
divers only come out of their offices, shirts and ties
once a year. Make that important stop to your local
professional dive shop and have the gear checked out.
SCUBA diving equipment is life support equipment.
If you haven't been diving for a long time, it might
also be a good idea to try your gear on in the shallow
end of the pool. You'll find out the skills quickly
return. It is better to get the kinks out in a pool than to
find yourself in rolling four foot seas, and trapped
downstream from the boat in heavy current.
If beach diving, remember your dive flag. Try to
stay under, making the return trip underwater with a
compass. This keeps you out of harm's way of
unskilled boaters, who frequently run over dive flags
as though they were part of a downhill skiing course.
With a little common sense and a proper respect,
this lobster season can be a rewarding experience. It is
the duty of all of us that slide under the warm Florida
waters to be aware of the rules so that the spiny
lobsters will always be out there where they belong.
It's spiny lobster season: Florida laws takes effect
By WILLIAM REIDENBACH
Special to Waterfront News
The State of Florida has a greater spiny lobster
population than anywhere else in the coastal U.S. and
Bahamas. If you plan to be one of the thousands of
lobster hunters who take advantage of this, be sure to
keep abreast of ever-changing regulations.
According to Doris Carden, senior clerk for the
Florida Marine Patrol at Marathon, spiny lobster
season is open in Florida from August 6 to March 31,
with a 2-day recreational "mini-season" the last full
weekend prior to August 1. Spiny lobsters must be
measured while in the water (this is a good practice
anywhere). They must be greater than three inches
from the spines just over the eyes to the end of the
head section. The bag limit during the min-season is 6
spinys per licensed person, period. The bag limit
during the regular season is 6 per licensed person or
24 per boat, whichever is greater.
Spiny lobsters must be kept whole while being
transported on or below state waters. To take spiny or
slipper lobsters from Florida waters, a Florida
saltwater fishing license and a crawfish stamp are
Tampering with any commercial trap even those
abandoned "ghost" traps is a felony.

Don't forget your slippers
By BILL REIDENBACH
Special to Waterfront News
When in the southeast U.S. and Bahamas, don't
ignore one of spiny's many cousins, the slipper
lobster. This burrowing lobster grows to about 12
inches. It has no claws or spines, but its flavorful meat
is similar in taste and texture to that of the spiny
lobster. Snatch this critter before it bulldozes into the
sand for an easy catch and memorable meal. In Florida
there is currently no "off' season or size regulations
for the slipper lobster. However, egg-bearing females
must not be taken.

Boaters get short notice to pay user fee
Millions of recreational boaters across the country
are given notice to purchase a new federal boat "user
fee" (RVF) decal by July 31, or face a civil fine of up
to $5,000, even though they may never use Coast
Guard services, says the U.S. Coast Guard in the July
1 issue of the Federal Register. Notices were not sent
to individual boatowners, nor will renewal forms be
mailed out when the tax is due again on January 1,
The regulations will require some 4.1 million
recreational boat owners, who own boats larger than
16 feet and who use the navigable waterways, to pay a
total of $718 million over the next five years.
According to the Coast Guard, none of the money
collected will be added to its budget and boaters "can
expect no increase in the quantity, quality or variety of
services they receive from the Coast Guard." The
Coast Guard estimates that it could cost as much as
$56 million to collect the boat "user fee" tax over the
next five years through 1995. Decals must be attached
within six inches of the "FL number" or where it
would be on the bow of the vessel.
How much is the fee?
A) Boats over 16 feet but less than 20 feet = $25
B) Boats at least 20 feet but less than 27 feet = $35
C) Boats at least 27 feet but less than 40 feet = $50
D) Boats 40 feet and greater = $100
The annual charge is as follows: $25 for boats
larger than 16 feet but less than 20 feet; $35 for boats
larger than 20 feet but less than 27 feet; $50 for boats
larger than 27 feet but less than 40 feet and $100 for
boats over 40 feet. Boaters may call 800-848-2100 and
charge the boat tax to their credit card or pay by mail
by first calling 800-368-5647 for a "decal request
form" and then sending a check to: U.S. RVF, P.O.

vote tries to
sink federal boat user fee
The House of Representatives voted 412-6 on July
18 that the new federal boat "user fee" tax slated to go
into effect on July 31 should be repealed. The vote
came on a non-binding "sense of the Congress"
motion by Rep..Bob Davis (R-MI). Rep. Davis' bill,
HR 534, which would repeal the boat "user fee" tax
outright, is being blocked from floor consideration.
The Davis bill currently has 220 co-sponsors more
than a majority of the House of Representatives.
The Davis motion prevailed after many
Congressmen pointed out that the boat "user fee" was
nothing but a new tax disguised as a fee. The new
federal boat "user fee" tax will require 4.1 million
Americans who own boats to pay from $25 to $100
Boat user fee update
SHORT NOTICE, FROM page 2
during each of these years, but was finally approved in
a last minute backroom, closed-door meeting late last
year," declared Michael Scuilla with the Boat Owners
Association of the United States. The tax was tacked
on as a rider to the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act
Legislation to repeal the boat "user fee" tax has
been unanimously approved by the House Merchant
Marine Committee. However, H.R. 534, which now
has 207 co-sponsors, a near-House majority, is being
blocked from floor action.
Which vessels are not subject
to the fee?
Vessels 16-feet long or under.
Sailboards and seaplanes.
Manually powered vessels such as canoes,
kayaks and rowboats.
Foreign vessels operated less than 30 days per
calendar year in the U.S.
Vessel-tenders or lifeboats (less than 10
horsepower) for numbered or documented vessels
used only for transportation between that vessel
and shore and for no other purpose.
Unpowered barges or houseboats normally
moored or at anchor.
Vessels owned by charitable non-profit
organizations specified by regulation.
Rescue vessels owned by fire departments, etc.
To obtain further information about these
exemptions call: 1-800-368-5647.
Until and/or unless legislators reverse themselves,
starting August 1, the Coast Guard will begin issuing
warnings to non-complying boaters. Beginning
October 1, fines will be levied on delinquent boaters.
"During initial implementation the Coast Guard will
allow afirst-time violator, cited for not having a decal,
a reasonable period of time to obtain the decals and to
furnish evidence of fee payment in order to avoid the
assessment and payment of a civil penalty," according
to the July 1, 1991 edition of the Federal Register.
"The availability of decals by mail or phone should
eliminate the need for a grace period for vessels
returning from a foreign voyage," reason the feds.

4 Waterfront News August 1991 Letters
Save both human and manatee lives
To the Editor:
The following is a response to a letter which
appeared in your paper [see "Formula for disaster,"
page 4, July 1991, Waterfront News] submitted by
Mr. Robert D. Bekoff of Fort Lauderdale.
Mr. Bekoff references the fact that by increasing
boating safety by the reduction of speed on the
waterways in Broward County we are developing a
"Formula for Disaster."
I am taken aback by the fact that an operation
which deals with the public is opposed to increased
public safety by any means. I would assume that Mr.
Bekoff, as an owner in a marine related business,
would advocate safety on the water if for no other
reason than to assure he is not involved in some kind
of boating mishap which may lead to a lawsuit.
It appears to me that with the population in
Broward, as related to the number of registered
pleasure boats (3.5% of Broward County), the
advocation of safety on the water would be welcomed.
Reduction of the land speed limit did not negatively
impact cars utilizing our highways. Why would better
control on the waterways have a negative impact on
boaters especially since they are such a minority in the
I challenge Mr. Bekoffs reference to his "survey
of professionals" on the water in which he states there
is a lack on sightings on the ICW north of Bahia Mar.
I do believe Mr. Bekoffs statement is self serving and
All one has to do is to read the necropsy reports on
manatee deaths and his statement is refuted. In
addition, sightings have been made by people with no
interest inthe speed limits one way or the other such as
FDOT bridge tenders, private citizens, pleasure boaters
indicating the contrary.
Mr. Bekoffs observations that manatees only
travel the open ocean route is partially true. It has been
documented that some animals have utilized the ocean
on their southern migration during the impending
winter season. However, they return by way of the
ICW during their northerly migration because there is
more food available to them in this waterway and they
do not have to fight the littoral drift when they go
Mr. Bekoffs reference to manatees being killed
during the winter months because of the fact that we:
have a high number of visiting yachts and cruise lines
is incredulous. The deaths of manatees have been
documented all year long and in most waterways.
His implication that out-of-towners may contribute
Sto this occurrence bespeaks little of the northern
Visitors that contribute to our economy. Actually,
increased boat safety may well be necessary during this
-time of the year due to the fact that strangers to our
waters may be unfamiliar with regulations, safety
hazards and manatees within our area.
I do not see the relationship between having boater
safety and its indirect result of reducing manatee injury
or mortality, and the death knell of the marine industry
in Broward County.
Mr. Bekoffs argument appears to speak for the
"commercial towing companies, dinner cruise and
excursion vessel operators and his own water-oriented
company." Figures supplied by staff indicated that
there are 1,270,800 residents in the county in 1990
(sic) and 44,452 are registered boat owners (3.5% of
the total population). What must be the percentage of
businesses Mr. Bekoff is speaking for? Even if there
are 1000 such types of vessels in the county (which I
feel is generous) this represents 0.88% of the total
population or if this number is compared to the number
of the registered boaters, this represents 2.2%.
I submit that if the "general" boating public were
interviewed regarding these proposals, they would noti
oppose means to help the survival of the manatees as
well as insure the safety of their families.

I fully understand Mr. Bekoffs position with
regard to speed on the waterways. It is purely
economics. The faster he goes, the more people he can
accommodate with his boats.
Controlling speed on our highways didn't reduce
the number of tourists coming to Florida or Broward
County. Reducing the speed on the waterways will not
reduce the number of tourists to Florida or Broward
County. However, such action may save both the lives
of humans and manatees.
Thank you for this opportunity to place my
comment into the records.

Boaters' right to anchor is threatened
To the Editor:
Since February 1989, a lot has happened in our
fight to free the federal waters in Florida for the
cruising boats to anchor without being harassed and
First, Albert Brault still has his vessel impounded
by the City of Riviera Beach. They impounded it over
two years ago. We are soon going into court again,
and I give it a good chance that we will win this case
Next,'five boaters were charged with being live-
aboard people in the Pelican Marina in Riviera Beach.
The case was lopsided in favor of the boaters. Judge
Kroll dismissed the charges after a brilliant endeavor
by attorneys T.G. Brown and Cary Klein. The City of
Riviera Beach wrote a new ordinance 2406, and then
impounded Randi Frick's boat. Randy was acquitted,
and they wrote another ordinance 2527. My boat was
impounded on March 15th and Randi's was
impounded a second time on May 10th. Our two
attorneys called for an emergency hearing by Judge
Schwartz for a Declaratory Action to determine the
validity of Ordinance # 2527. The judge ruled that the
ordinance was unconstitutional, not merely invalid.
Our attorneys now tell me that they believe that
there is no way that a community in this state can
restrict the rights of a boater to anchor his/her vessel in
federal waters. It was tough to find an attorney who
would take a case like this, and I had to literally
interview more than ten of them to find Brown. Then I
had to show him my research of the federal laws to
convince him that the boaters had the right to anchor.
Recently he called me to say that he and Cary Klein are
having a pleasurable time with this law work. We all
have learned the ropes in the Brault case.
The next step is to sue the City of Riviera Beach
for violating our constitutional and civil rights. The
attorneys tell me that when a person or a body of
people commit an illegal act three or more times, it can
be classified as a racket and they may be charged under
the federal RICO act for racketeering. A suit under the
RICO act brings triple damages. They intend to file a
suit against the City of Riviera Beach under the RICO
We are now pressing the governor and the attomey
general of this state to prohibit 43 communities from
writing these unconstitutional ordinances. They are
being stubborn about yielding this right to us boaters,
but we will eventually prevail when we sue the state in
the federal court if we have to.
With my assistance and a lot of hard work on his
own, Edwin Hager has been acquitted of anchoring
charges in the Manatee County court. They will soon
be getting the message in Tallahassee.
Every week I get calls from places like the U.S.
Virgin Islands, California, South Carolina, New York,
Hawaii and all over the State of Florida about the
problems that boaters are having with the laws in those

places that restrict the rights of boaters to anchor.
This has got to be one of the huge problems in the
gentle art of cruising in your boat today. Boaters need
to know what we are doing to fight for their rights,
and we need them to help us. Waterfront News is the
way to get the word out.

not strain the back of your canoe. You can go electric

I'm at a loss to advise you now. In the back of most

from the 7th Avenue boat ramp west of Bubier Park,
and the rafts will travel east to a specified turnaround
point and finish at the starting point. This race is a
timed event, and each raft is timed individually.
Following the race, join the fun and crowd at

Boat parades begin lining up for Holidays
By GLORIA KATZ
Waterfront News writer
Boat parades are playing a larger part in Fort
Lauderdale festivities each year.
The Fort Lauderdale Jaycees are planning a
December 21 boat parade with 21 small boats. They
will travel from the mouth of the New River to Marina
Bay and back.
"This is an opportunity for the small boats to
participate," said Ron Bowen of the Ft. Lauderdale
Jaycees. "We started the original Winter festival. We
eventually felt shut out [of Winterfest], so when the
Lauderdale Small Boat Club came to us inquiring if we
had any interest in a small boat parade, we agreed."
The Jaycees also sponsoira raft race in September.
"The community comes first. Everyone forgot
that," said Bowen. "That's what we have to go back
But volunteers will be very much a part of the
1991 Winterfest festivities. "We're looking at working
more closely together with the Fort Lauderdale
Jaycees," said Ina Lee, a past Winterfest chairman.
The Winterfest, alias Sunshine Classic, boat
parade announced recently that enough money had
been collected to pay off their 1990 debts and that they
could now proceed with plans for the 1991 boat
Jeff Beck, 1990 chairman of the Winterfest board
said corporate and individual contributors have
donated $240,000 to erase the debt. Because of that
debt, staff had been dismissed and the future of the
boat parade was in jeopardy.
Twenty-seven sponsors have pledged more than
$90,000 to the 1991 boat parade, said Beck.
The 1991 Winterfest will he scaled down with only
the December 14 boat parade, a Grand Marshal
reception on December 13 and a Black Tie Ball as
opposed to the 29 activities last year. Light Up
Lauderdale, the outdoor New Year's Eve party, is still
"The Winterfest Boat Parade was too good to let
die," said Joe Millsaps, 1991 Winterfest chairman.
"It's great the way it has brought the community
Millsaps admitted that the Winterfest board had
asked too much of the financial community last year.
He blamed the economy and the directors' attempt to
produce too many events.
Although Bob Larsen has been appointed head of
the search committee to hire an executive director,
everyone will have to rely more on volunteers this
There will be one or two staff members but, said
Beck, "Volunteers will have to be brought back to help
This year's boat parade will highlight small boats
as well as the large boats of previous years. The entry
fee continues to be $70 per boat.
"It's exciting to see the public's interest in the
continuation of the boat parade," said Beck.

Beach renourishment project could
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
The saga of the sands continues in North Palm
Beach this month as one government agency is
fighting another regarding a major beach
renourishment project scheduled to begin next year.
The Jupiter Inlet District Commission is wary of
Palm Beach County's plan to renourish the beaches in
Jupiter and Juno using 500,000 cubic yards of sand
taken from a sand bar located a few miles offshore.
The Jupiter-Carlin Park beach renourishment
project would replenish 6,000 feet of beach stretching

Man charged with turtle egg poaching
A Riviera Beach man was charged with taking 110
sea turtle eggs from a nest along the Seminole Golf
Club in Juno Beach. Richard Burs, 39, was charged
with the poaching, after Florida Fresh Water Fish
Commissioners staked out the area because of reports
that turtle nests had been disturbed. If found guilty of
the charges, Bums could face a fine for each egg taken
and up to two months in jail.
Nesting to receive protection on-inlet island
Beer Can Island, located in Boynton's Intracoastal
Waterway, is scheduled to become a protectorate of the
National Audubon Society.
As a result, those boaters who currently use the
island for recreation and "partying" would be denied
access. Environmentalists claim that nesting birds take
precedent over recreational users of the island and that
there are several endangered species that nest there.
Those who use the island for picnics and bathing are
upset with the prospect of losing it to mother nature.

Bob Clinger, an engineering coordinator with
Palm Beach County's Department of Environmental
Resource Management (DERM), said that the project is
slated for dredging beginning next spring and will cost
The Jupiter Inlet District commission is in favor of
renourishment, but members feel that the sand for the
project should come from a source other than the ebb
tidal shoal which forms an offshore barrier against the
forces of erosion which affect the beach.
Mike Grella, Jupiter Inlet District director, stated,
"Our concern is that in mining such a large portion of
the ebb shoal, you're taking a significant risk in losing
a good deal of the natural breakwater."
Clinger disagrees with Grella's assessment,
stating, "Our (DERM) studies indicate no reason for
the Inlet District to feel that way; other inlets have used
shoals to obtain sand for renourishment projects
without adverse effects."
A meeting to permit the project is scheduled for
September 12 at the Department of Natural
Resources. If DNR decides to go ahead and issue the

Marine community clamors for
say in marina siting plan
By HANK JONES
waterfront News writer
Members of Dade's marine community want a
piece of the action when Metro commissioners and
other agencies consider rules and regulations
governing marina siting for new installations under the
proposed manatee protection plan for the county
mandated by the State of Florida.
"We want to be involved to hear testimony, to
understand the rationale on which plans are based, and
to influence the options that are available," said
Richard Briggs, executive director of the Marine
A lot of members of the marine community are
concerned about the issue, he said.
"Our objective is to work with the county to have
them involve us in the marina siting situation rather
than let the commissioners do all the work and then
spring a surprise on us a year or so down the road,"
"We want to be involved in the process even to the
extent of making recommendations. We hope there's a
possibility that DERM will come to accept the
contributions we can make."
The fear, Briggs explained, is that the marina
moratorium simply will be continued, with studies and
proposals, but with no criteria established and no
ground rules established.
Needs are great in Dade with the Dinner Key
boatyard stalled and Miami now losing $400,000

poured in to the city treasury just in rent money.
Instead, the project has been stalled for more than
15 months, the city has not realized any income and
construction has not been started.
"We need to get moving. The public has a right to
a fully functional boating facility and we're denying
ourselves revenue," said Commissioner J.L. Plummer.
Sherman Whitmore, key man in the original team
designated to develop the project, has filed for
protection under federal bankruptcy laws.
The firm that lost the original contest for the
marina work now wants major concessions because of
the recession and the local boating economy.
There are legal questions as to whether
concessions can be granted with major changes, or
whether the entire proposal and bid process would
have to be repeated. The extended process could push
completion of the marina plan back by more than a
year after a decision is reached and a contract signed.
Another contested issue live-aboard houseboats

Columbus Day Regatta slated for October
Plans are well underway for the 38th Annual
Columbus Day Cruising Regatta, one of the largest
sailboat racing events in the United States. The regatta
committee in August announced that both the 1991
and 1992 Regattas have been sanctioned as official
events of the National Quincentennial Celebrations to
be held in honor of Columbus' discovery of the New
This year's Regatta will take place on Saturday and
Sunday, October 12th and 13th in Miami on Biscayne
Bay. Alternate dates have been established as October
19th and 20th in case of adverse weather, but since its
inception in 1954, only once has the Regatta been
postponed due to bad weather. If necessary though,
plans have been established to announce any
postponement on the NOAA weather radio channel.
The entry fee for the Columbus Day Regatta is $35
per boat through Saturday, September 28th, 1991.
From then until 7 p.m. on Saturday, October 5th, '(the
absolute deadline) the entry fee is $55. Since a major
part of the Regatta is held in the environs of the
Biscayne National Park, a portion of the entry fee is
donated directly to the park. Regatta programs
including entry forms are mailed to the previous year's
entrants or are available at most marine stores, marinas,
sailmakers and yacht clubs in Dade, Broward and
Palm Beach Counties.
The Columbus Day Regatta is a family event, fun
for yachtsmen of all ages. Since the Regatta has grown
so in popularity (from the original 24 yachts entered in
the first Regatta in 1954 to over 700 in 1984) it has
been necessary to limit the fleet to a cap of 600 boats
making it imperative that entry forms be submitted
This year's fleet will be divided into twenty-one
classes. For the first time multi-hulls will be rated
under the Multi-hull Association of South Florida's
handicapping system and they will race on the longest
course. Dowagers, the "Stately Old Ladies of the Sea,"
will also race on one of the courses rather than sailing
Coast Guard speaks: specih
Cuba claims a 12-mile territorial sea extending
from straight baselines drawn from Cuban coastal
points.The effect is that Cuba's claimed territorial sea
extends in many cases well beyond 12 miles from
Cuba's physical coastline. These claims are not in
conformance with international law and are not
recognized by the United States. Nonetheless, United
States vessels have been stopped and boarded by
Cuban authorities more than 20 miles from Cuban
coasts in some cases. Within the limits of prudence
and good judgment, mariners are advised to protest
(but not physically resist) any improper attempt to
stop, board, or seize U.S. vessels in international
waters. Notify the U.S. Coast Guard of your status so
that we can relay information about your situation to
the Department of State for diplomatic attention.
On September 1, 1990, seven Traffic Separation
Schemes, approved by the International Maritime
Organization (IMO), were implemented off the eastern,
western, and northern coasts of Cuba. The
government of Cuba has unilaterally established a
mandatory ship reporting system within the Old
Bahama Channel to govern vessel movement within

10 to possibly 19-and-one-half miles, all of them
starting off Dinner Key in Coconut Grove and
finishing north of Elliott Key in the National Park.
Anchorages are established at Sands and Elliott Keys

sailing back up Biscayne Bay to a finish off Dinner
Serious consideration has been given by the
Regatta Committee to the safety of all the participants
-in the Regatta. This has led to the establishment of the
anchorage areas as "no wake" zones prohibiting the
use of jet and water skis as well as high speed cruising
by any boats. The use of water balloons and
"funnelators" is strictly prohibited. Their use will
result in immediate disqualifications from this and
future Regattas. Traffic flow patterns have been
established during peak racing hours through the East
Featherbed Channel with traffic being one-way (south)
on Saturday afternoon and one-way (north) on Sunday
morning. The National Park Rangers as well as Coast
Guard and Florida Marine Patrol officers are available
24 hours a day to provide assistance when needed.
Two emergency medical technicians and salvage
vessels are on call throughout the Regatta.
Trophy presentations for the Regatta will be held
one week after the event at Coral Reef Yacht Club on
October 19th (or the 26th if the Regatta is delayed).
The party will include the music of "The Heroes" band
and a cookout for the participants.

Abaco Regatta sails
Abaco Regatta sails \,
By SKIP SHAW
Special to Waterfront News
This year's Regatta Time in the Abaco's (RTIA)
Commodore Don Barnes, Race Committee Chairman
Bill Johnson and Co-ChairmanrVan Allen decided to
make a change and it really paid off.
In the past RTIA started at Hopetown about June
23 and wound up at Green Turtle on the Fourth of
July. This year they chose to start on the Fourth of
July at Green Turtle and wind up with the Man 'O'
War Gold Cup on July 12. As it turned out the
decision was an excellent one and will probably be
continued in future years.
Historically speaking the last week in June has
been plagued with violent thunderstorms interspersed
with flat calms; thus, not the most desirable weather
for good yacht racing. As a matter of fact the weather
this year during the last week of June in Abaco was
absolutely putrid and everyone was thankful that they
had changed the dates.
The series started with the 24th Annual Fourth of
July Race at Green Turtle. There were ten starters in
the RTIA Class, nine in the PHRF Class, two in the
Trimaran Class and 35 in four divisions of the Mother
Tub Class. The Mother Tub Class is made up of the
live-aboard type cruising boats, some fairly new and
some well on in years.
The weather was just great, averaging about 10
knots from the southeast through most of the race. A
major wind shift shuffled the boats around on the last
leg but Stan Sunderland, sailing Halfcatt, retained his
lead and was first to finish in the PHRF Class. Bubba
Ball brought Pere de Mer home first to take the honors
in the RTIA Class and Arial, a Niagara 42, was first
home in the Mother Tub Class.
Friday was a day of relaxation and Saturday the
fleet got together off Great Guana. It was another
beautiful Bahamian day with wind around 12-14. This
got the boats back with plenty of time for a great beach
party but rumor has it that the highlight of this day was
the pool party at 10 p.m. that evening at the Guana
Sunday and Monday were rest days and great for
all those who went snorkeling or fishing.

Marine industry examines potential for prosperity
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Prosperity and South Florida's marine industry
walk hand in hand. Marine activities bring tourists,
trade, jobs and cash but little recognition, marine
authorities agreed during a Greater Miami Chamber of
Commerce Marine Industry Summit.
Miami Port Director Carmen Lunetta reported 3-
million cruise passengers growing to five million in
1992 with a $5 billion impact involving up to 75,000
Trade is a "bright penny in our community,"
Lunetta said, bringing a million tons of export cargo
and creating 18,000 jobs. Should Cuba open to
international trade, "we would strain every bit of
Nationally, Florida is fourth in international trade,
with Miami first in Florida. The Miami River is the
state's fifth busiest cargo port, the nation's eighth
largest port activity in terms of trade.
Gwen Margolis, Florida Senate president, said a
$20-billion bonanza will result from modernized cargo
handling, making Florida the trans-shipment center
between Europe and Latin America.
Huber R. Parsons Jr., attorney and chairman of
the Miami River Coordinating Committee, said river-
based vessels serve some 60 Caribbean ports, most
shallow-draft and not adequately served by deep-draft
Cruise passengers also spawned a major industry.
Art Kane, president, Florida Caribbean Cruise
Association, said 50 percent of cruise passengers
spend at least one night in a Florida hotel, representing
1.2 million hotel nights annually.
South Florida has five major cruise lines, more
than 50 ships, and employment for 5,000 people
The average cruise ship visits ports that buy goods
and services here, stimulating business.
Speakers agreed the industry makes it important to
preserve waterfront for marine-related interests.
Michael Moore, attorney with Holland & Knight:
"There should be no net loss of waterfront to things
not water-related." He called for a Marine Arbitration
Panel to minimize litigation costs and speed resolution
Richard J. Bischoff, attorney and partner, Valdes-
Fauli, Cobb, Petry, and Bischoff, P.A., and past
commodore, Coral Reef Yacht Club, defined the
recreational boating industry as "very fragile."
Lack of hurricane preparedness is typical. "The
best I can do with my vessel is get out of the area or go
inland as far as possible," he said, calling hurricane
preparedness programs "a traffic plan."
Economics also may affect boatyards, as boaters
leave the area, said Philip B. Everingham, vice
president of a local dry dock company. "As costs grow
new boatyards are less likely to be built and existing
yards become more vulnerable."
Reinforcing recreational boating's needs, Robert
Zarchen, managing broker for yacht sales of a local
dry dock company, said: "We create jobs and have
continuing need for slips. We get calls from all parts of
the country people want to list boats and we suggest
they bring them here. South Florida is capital of the
yacht sales industry."
Zarchen said sellers spend preparing for sales -
appearance, performance and maintenance. Buyers
spend with hotels and restaurants while shopping,
and new owners spend on decor, equipment, and
Spencer Meredith, president of a local marina,
asked: What happens when there are not enough
facilities and marinas to store and service boats?
Attorney Jason Warner of Fowler, White, Bumett,
Hurley, Banick and Strickroot, P.A., said use and
luxury taxes hurt the industry. The use tax was
designed to protect merchants by discouraging
Floridians from buying out of state. Instead, Florida
attempts to tax out-of-state boaters who remain here
too long. Taxes out-of-state boaters would pay on
Florida purchases would more than offset revenue
Similarly the 10 percent excise tax with estimated
revenues of $3-million in 1991, and $6-million in
1992, entails more than $6-million in enforcement
Edward A. Swakon, P.E., president of a local
engineering company, summarized recreational
boating's outlook by noting things not discussed:
MAST Academy, marine museum, garbage problems,
and artificial reefs "all important, but some see the
marine community as a problem a revenue source."
Capsulating the summit, Teo Babun Jr., president
of a local financial group, said the industry cannot
depend on "sheer luck." The Wall Street Journal
reported on the Miami River the day before dredging
the river was considered in Washington "We start
dredging in 1992."
Coincidentally, he said, "Yesterday the county
commission voted for a feasibility study for a tunnel
under the Miami River," stressing the need for an
annual Marine Summit.
Used boat sales buoy industry
FORT LAUDERDALE Sales of used boats
have increased steadily since the end of the Gulf War
and have been the only bright spot in an otherwise
disastrous year for the recreational boating industry.
With sales of larger new boats practically nonexistent,
the industry has filled the void with used boat sales.
According to Walter J. Sullivan, III, president of BUC
Information Services, the Ft. Lauderdale-based marine
research firm, sales of new boats are down 75-100
percent throughout the U.S. largely due to the excise
tax imposed January 1, on new boats selling for more
Sullivan said that a comparison of the average of
BUC's Monthly Sales Volume Index for the first
quarter of the past three years showed 1991 used boat
sales volume to be down 12 to 14 percent in
comparison to 1990 and 1989 volumes. New boat
sales are down 75 to-100 percent this year, while
surveyed dealers have sold 1520 used vessels in the
first six months of this year whose sale price was
greater than $100,000.
The drop in used boat sales can be attributed to
recent economic conditions the recession, the war,
and the fuel tax surcharge levied as part of 1990's
Congressional tax package. In addition to these
negative influences, new boats selling for more than
$100,000 are further burdened by a 10 percent excise
tax making used boats a dramatically better buy.
"It is obvious that the excise tax has destroyed
sales of new boats with prices greater than $100,000,
in comparison to the drop sustained by the used boat
segment of the market," says Sullivan. "One can fairly
conclude that the luxury tax has driven buyers away
from new boat sales in huge numbers not only to
used boats but to other leisure market sectors as well.
Although some new boat dealers have taken up the
banner to sell used boats as a means to survival, this is
a short-term fix for the industry."
"Looking down the road, the destruction of the
new boat industry will result in drastically reduced
volumes of both new and used sales, increased prices
of new and used boats including smaller boats at lower
price points, damage to other businesses and industries
that have not even been considered yet, and will make
U.S. boat manufacturers uncompetitive in world
markets," Sullivan added.

Lauderdale divers head for Cuba
By LAURA HATFIELD
Special to Waterfront News
The Fort Lauderdale Diving Team (FLDT),
coached by six-time Olympic coach Dr. Ron O'Brien,
will send five divers to the Pan American Games in
Havana, Cuba in August. FLDT rallied back after a
disappointing national championship meet to qualify 3-
meter world champion Kent Ferguson, 3-meter
national champion Mark Lenzi, 1988 Olympian Patrick
Jeffrey, and national team veterans Karen LaFace and
Mary Ellen Clark for the games. Fort Lauderdale
divers occupy five out of twelve spots on the Pan
With the arrival of Lenzi and Jeffrey from
Columbus, Ohio, FLDT is possibly the most powerful
and talented squad in the United States according to
our team officials. Jeffrey, an Ohio State alumnus, is a
1988 Olympian on the 10-meter platform and the first
man to sweep the NCAA national diving competition
(1988). Lenzi, an ex -wrestler who began his career
five years ago, has already shattered Greg Louganis'
world record of 99.0 points for a single dive. At the
1991 U.S. Indoor National Diving Championships,
Lenzi ripped a 3-and-one-half reverse tuck off the 3-
meter springboard for a total of 101.85 points and a
new world mark. In addition, Lenzi is the current 3-
meter World Cup champion, and a 1991 World
Championship silver medalist.
"Mark is an aggressive competitor. His upbeat and
positive attitude will bring out the best in everyone,"
said O'Brien. "Anytime you have a group of high
quality individuals, the entire team is bound to turn out
Prior to the Pan American Games, FLDT was to
have sent nine divers to the Olympic Sports Festival in
Los Angeles July 18-22: Russ Bertram, Scott Donie,
Mary Ellen Clark, Jim Fischer, Kent Ferguson, Jenny
Keim, Karen LaFace, Mark Lenzi and Eric Ognibene.
10-meter diver Scott Donie will compete for the United
States at the World University Games in Sheffield,
England, July 20-25 as well.
Hall of Fame to host summer swimming championships
*".*_ "- .... ... J-W--." "L^ &"t Ai '
Some said it would never happen, but the
International Swimming Hall of Fame will host the
1991 National Swimming Championships August 12-
16 and the International Age Group Invitational August
Skepticism centered around the fact that the Hall of
Fame Aquatic Complex was out of date, not up to par
as far as competition pools were concerned. But that
has all changed thanks to the City of Fort Lauderdale,
the State of Florida and private sponsors. Since 1988
the Hall of Fame Aquatic complex has been
transforming into a high-tech facility, adding a second
Olympic-sized pool, state-of-the-art timing system,
new locker rooms and office space. Currently in the
works are plans to update the grandstands, diving pool
and add yet another teaching pool, swim spa and flume
- a scientific device that allows coaches to evaluate
stroke efficiency as well as study the physiological
make-up of a fine-tuned swimmer. Upon its arrival
later this year, the flume will be one of only two in the
United States; the other is housed at the Olympic
Training Center in Colorado Springs.

"It's a miracle," said Dr. Sam Freas, president of
the International Swimming Hall of Fame. "No other
aquatic facility in the world can match the unique
Atmosphere of Fort Lauderdale's Hall of Fame. It's the
community in addition to the beautiful south Florida
a environment that makes the Hall of Fame so special -
Sthe family atmosphere the city is promoting is really
u starting to change things."
S The financial crunch has affected nearly all
SFloridians and the upcoming competitions seem to be
Z just what the doctor ordered. Over 2,500 athletes,
officials, coaches, and spectators are anticipated to
flock to Fort Lauderdale for the August competitions -
tourists who will most likely spend their family
vacation in south Florida at the conclusion of their
summer swim season.
An extremely successful meet will open the door to
additional national and international competitions in the
future. "The community is really going to determine the
overall success of the meets and over 200 volunteers
are needed to run the upcoming championships," said
Freas. "This is our chance to knock 'em dead and re-
acquaint the swimming world with the wonderful City
of Fort Lauderdale and all it has to offer."

Fishing Classic conservation donations top $200,000
A field of 228 boats with 815 anglers enabled the
South Florida Fishing Classic to divide a total purse of
$74,400 between angler prizes and saltwater
conservation projects during the seventh annual
tournament held June 22 and 23.
The $37,200 raised for conservation brings the
tournament's environmental contributions to more than
$200,000 since its inception in 1985.
Money raised by the Fishing Classic supports
conservation projects such as artificial reefs and
scientific/educational marine research studies.
At the tournament banquet, the Fishing Classic
awarded $5,000 for research on algal/coral interactions
to the Department of Biological Sciences at Florida
International University in Miami.
Researchers at FIU will study the mechanisms by
which algae are killing corals in the Florida reef
ecosystems, a problem that is both widespread and
potentially damaging to saltwater fish ecology and fish
The Fishing Classic has donated $1500 to
"Project: Ocean Exploration," a summer marine
science program at Ely High School in Pompano
Beach, designed to increase students' awareness of
Florida's coastal habitats and the physical factors
affecting these habitats.
Additionally, the Fishing Classic has supported
over the past four years the International Commission
on the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas (ICCAT)
"Program on Enhanced Billfish Research," that is
studying the effect of billfish by-catch in the south
Atlantic. Another $5000 was donated to The Billfish
Foundation earmarked for the National Marine
Fisheries Service which administers the ICCAT
This conservation-oriented tournament was
founded on the premise that the anglers and
environment would share equally in the money
collected as entry fees. The Fishing Classic's sponsors
underwrote all tournament expenses, thus guaranteeing
the environmental contributions and prizes.
Geographically, the Fishing Classic is the largest
tournament held in South Florida because it is fished
from Miami to the Palm Beaches simultaneously.
Fishing out of the Lake Worth Inlet in Palm
Beach, Randy Stevens, of Boynton Beach, became the
first angler in Fishing Classic history to win the top
prize of $15,000 twice.
Stevens, fishing aboard the Reel Deduction, a 25-
foot Mako, with teammates Allen Carpenter, George
Pickering and Barry Stevens, boated a 44-pound
dolphin to take the $15,000 Top Dolphin honors. In
1989, Stevens caught a 57-pound wahoo, a
tournament record, and took home another $15,000 or.

Special to Waterfront News
The West Palm Beach Fishing Club's charitable
arm, the Palm Beach County Fishing Foundation
(PBCFF,), will host its annual "Kid's Fishing Day"
on Monday, August 5, 1991. This heartwarming
program targets less fortunate children from
throughout Palm Beach County for a special day of
deep sea fishing with all the trimmings. Foster
children, Inter-City youth, physically handicapped and
mentally impaired kids have benefited from previous
outings. For many of them, it's also a first time boat
trip out on the ocean. The ages of the children range
from 4 to 16. The program also provides the kids with
free T-shirts, hats, food, beverages and personalized
certificates of participation. Adult volunteers supervise
the kids and serve as program instructors during the
trip. Interaction between these adults and children
helps to improve each child's self-esteem and
confidence level building better citizens for tomorrow.
This year approximately 350 kids will participate
and get the thrill of a lifetime that many take for
granted. Since the program's inception in 1988
approximately 400 underprivileged children have
participated. The PBCFF's long-range goal is to take
1000 kids fishing on a single day.
Community support is needed to help the PBCFF
reach this ambitious goal. A "Sponsor-A-Kid"
program is currently underway where individuals or
businesses can sponsor one child by making a $30.00
contribution. Donations are fully tax-deductible and
should be made payable to the Palm Beach County
Fishing Foundation, P.O. Box 468, West Palm Beach,
33402. For additional information on the PBCFF's
annual "Kid's Fishing Day" call (407) 832-6780.

18 Waterfront News August 1991 Habitat
Of man, manatee and mandates
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News columnist
Battle lines are drawn in the waterway speed war
with manatees as the focus.
Thirteen Florida counties have been mandated to
enact laws covering the Intracoastal Waterway and
adjacent waters; Volusia, Brevard, Martin, Palm Beach
and Collier counties have.
Dade's Department of Environmental Resources
Management drafted restrictions endorsed by Metro
commissioners. If the governor and cabinet approve
the rules in September they become effective in
October. Under Dade's plan much of Biscayne Bay
and adjacent waters become a speed zone, limiting
boats to 8mph from 79th Street south to Julia Tuttle
Causeway.The slow-zone will be 1500 feet wide along
the bay's shoreline, except near Turkey Point, with
slow or idle speeds for most of the bay north of Broad
Fishing guides, commercial saltwater fishermen,
and boat builders could apply for exemptions.
Broward's draft plan calls for reduced speeds from
Nov. 15 through March 31 during weekends. The
entire New River and Dania Cutoff Canal would have
slow speeds year-round.
Organized boating groups oppose the rules, with
environmentalists seen as proponents.
One wonders... could a referendum among
residents bring endorsement for the measure manatee
Slowing boats, boat groups maintain, would stall
boat sales, cost boat-building jobs.
"We think that people are as important as the
manatee," a local newspaper quoted David Ray,
By SUSAN B. PETERSON
Waterfront News writer
Do herbicides contribute to young manatee deaths?
The controversial issue spurs debate.
"The greatest threat to manatee survival is the
availability of habitat in the future," said Patrick Rose,
director of the Florida DNR office of protected
species. "If we don't get control of available habitat,
we will lose the species."
A study on the effects of chemical residues on
baby manatee is planned in the fall, said DNR's Scott
Often, baby manatee deaths can be blamed on
factors such as naturally occurring waterborne
organisms, Wright said.
Baby manatee derive immunity from these
organisms by nursing almost constantly the mother's
milk provides necessary immune factors and that
interrupted nursing could perhaps cause disrupted
Another factor is pesticide runoff from residential
areas, which is more likely to harm baby manatee than
herbicides sprayed by the state, Wright speculated.
Herbicide use is prohibited in certain areas
frequented by manatees from Oct 31 to March 31, said
Bill Caton, of DNR's aquatic plant management
But if a waterfront property owner wants to clear
hydrilla from a beach, he could receive a permit to use
A big fish kill recently happened on the
Withlacoochie River, possibly the result of weed
killers, said Dr. Jesse White.

"Yes, we'd like to save the manatee, but at what cost?"
DERM's Susan Markley, a biologist, is reported as
countering, "It will definitely change the way people
do recreation in Dade County.
"It is restrictive, but we don't think it is
unreasonable. We're asking people to give up a little
more time to save manatees. We feel that every
manatee is important now and one or two deaths a year
is too many."
Surveys revealed manatee travel patterns and
indicate boats cause one or two manatee deaths
annually in Biscayne Bay.
DNR also wants restrictions on north bay shallow
Restrictions would add less than 30 minutes
between 79th Street and Rickenbacker Causeway.
"I think that's a gross underestimation," a local
newspaper quoted Bob Gowens, president and CEO
of a high-performance boat manufacturer with a north
Dade plant "They're basically requiring people to go
seven miles an hour from the county line to the
Rickenbacker. That's a very undesirable place to do
boating now. It's just not fun anymore."
Manatee aside, many residents of Dade, Broward
and Palm Beach counties favor speed limits.
There are complaints regarding speeding boats and
reckless boaters, demands for more no-wake and slow-
Boating interests claim only a couple of manatee
are killed each year not enough to justify limits.
How many persons, then, have to be killed or
maimed on the water to justify restrictions?
Florida Marine Patrol's Capt. Mike Lamphear
reports five deaths recorded on Dade's waters in 1990.
White said the herbicide weed control program
compounds the problem of low oxygen levels in the
summertime because the decaying killed weeds use up
the remaining oxygen.
Four governmental agencies spray: 'the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, the South Florida Water
Management District, the state DNR, and local
White said there would be a meeting of fishermen
and concerned residents in late August to discuss
issues relating to the Withlacoochie fish kills.
For further information, call Dr. White at (904)
In Broward County, aquatic weed control in the C-
11, C-12, C-13 and C-14 canals is handled by the
South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD).
Herbicide treatment costs over $300 per surface

Broward's figure was eight. This year the two counties
have tallied 11 deaths.
That's more than the manatees, but unlike
mankind, the manatee is a protected species.
How would votes be tallied if speed on inland
waters were correlated to men, women and children,
How would votes be tallied were speed on the
water equated with the number of local boaters driven
from the waterways?
Many boaters readily admit they don't cruise the
Intracoastal on weekends especially in Dade and
Is there acceptance that might rules, unchecked
power dominates and uncontrolled speed is a right? Is
there a sense of equity that access to inland waters is
equal to all? Do 8-foot prams, sailboards, canoes, and
fragile racing shells have equal right to safe passage?
Thousands of square miles of offshore waters are
available for high speed operation. What rights on
inland waters are reserved for water skiers, swimmers,
or today's Tom Sawyer on a perilous raft?
One wonders whether, put to a vote, high-
performance boaters would continue to rule inland
It's been said that it's difficult to protect a fool on
the water, doubly difficult to protect a damn-fool and
impossible to protect a poor naive innocent manatee -
When courtesy, consideration, and concern for the
safety of others are left behind by so many boaters
who put to sea, it's time for a change.

acre. There's about 15 surface acres in the north New
River canal between Sewell's Lock and Southwest
64th Street in Davie, said Gordon Baker,
environmental scientist with the South Florida Water
Aquathol and Sonar, two herbicides used in Fort
Lauderdale and in central Florida lakes, is considered
safe for adult manatees, Baker said, adding, the
diluted material is almost harmless.
But the effects on baby manatee are uncertain.
"If you look at the pesticide industry the one
unregulated thing is private lawn and garden use."
Many common lawn chemicals caution against
use near fish, but most people don't read the fine print
on the labels, Baker said.
SFWMD plans to experiment with grass carp in
enclosed canal areas, to attempt to control hydrilla
without the use of herbicides.

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
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-filtrationO"
to remone dirt, rust and algae down to one micron.
