Dade-skippers are unlikely to name new boats
"Lucky 7" or any variation on seven in the present
environment. A controversial seven-mile-an-hour
speed limit for Biscayne Bay is to go into effect
before the first of the year.
A mid-November meeting included Dade's waters
in a plan to protect endangered manatee. The
regulation, however, will not be enforced until speed
limit signs are posted in governed waters.
Proposed fines call for $500 or 60 days in jail for
The new rule, approved by Gov. Lawton Chiles
and Florida's Cabinet, includes a compromise sought
by boaters who oppose the 7 mph speed. In many
areas lower speeds will be enforced only during the
Nov. 15-April 30 period when manatee are most often
sighted in local waters searching for the warmer waters
they prefer. The animals tend to congregate around
water outlets in shallow waters.

Florida's lobster mini-season for sports divers
is in peril, and may be limited.
A Dec. 5 meeting of the Miami Fisheries
Commission will review crawfish regulations,
including the two-day sports season.
Anticipated as well is a plan to reduce the number
of lobser traps with more than a million sometimes
estimated to be in waters off the Keys. Lobstering may
be halted in state parks: Pennekamp Coral Reef State
Park, Bahia Honda State Recreation Area, and
possibly other vulnerable sites.
In a 1991 effort, lobstermen had to obtain tags for
each trap put into the water and in 1992 the program
calls for a 10 percent reduction in traps.
The two-day sport-diver season is likely to be the
most controversial issue since'it has an impact on both
land and sea.
Keys residents complain that an influx of lobster
divers abuse private property, damage the coral reef,
pose health hazards, and overload the road system.
While hotels and tourist-oriented businesses
benefit from the influx of divers during a slow season,
other Keys interests believe the season should be
dropped, cut back, or switched to mid-week dates.
Among items likely to be considered are
prohibiting lobstering near shore usually beach dives
- near busy bridges, and in other high traffic areas.
The six-lobster daily bag limit also may come
Lobstering may be limited to those using
snorkeling gear with SCUBA equipment banned. This
distinctly puts the odds in favor of the lobsters and
would limit the number of lobster hunters to those with
adequate diving skills and lung power.
More difficult to enforce would be a lottery that
would limit the number of people entitled to take

The U.S. Navy is making noises in the Keys
with a proposal to test weapons in the newly
-designated Keys National Marine Sanctuary.
Even the government's National Oceanographic
and Atmospheric Administration concedes there may
be a perceived conflict of interest in detonating
underwater explosives in a sanctuary.
At present Navy officials want to detonate as many
as 30 charges of from 70 to 1,900 pounds in the area
near Key West and west of the Marquesas.
The site was designated because the Navy already
has conducted deep-water tests in the general area, and
because these proposed tests would be conducted in
shallows similar to the waters of the Persian Gulf- 25
to 100 feet of approximate depth.
If successful, results would include mine-clearing
techniques that would be implemented in the Persian
Gulf to protect vessels.
Fragile ecosystems are the chief causes of concern
among state and federal officials, although since the
area already is a federal preserve tests could begin
without state approval in waters that have been used to
test military weapons systems since World War II.
Conservationists already have threatened to
populate the test area if the Navy tests within the
sanctuary. Indeed Russ Rector of Dolphin Project in
the Keys has filed a $20 million lawsuit over weapons-
testing by the Navy in August.
Don't pass "Go" but go directly to jail if you fail to
collect sales tax on marine equipment you sell
and remit the required amount to the state. That's the
word from Florida's Department of Revenue.

In search of historic boats
To the Editor:
Recently, some old colleagues from my motion
picture days called on me when they were in south
Florida outfitting for a film production with a
Caribbean location. They mentioned that although there
are numerous contemporary boats in the Dade-
Broward area, they and other producers have found it
perplexing to locate antique and vintage boats in the
area. I told them that there are a number of boats
around here such as they mentioned but that most are
apparently secreted away up secluded canals and
Thus, I have decided that as a service to both film
producers of maritime subjects and vintage boat
owners, there should be a listing of pre-fiberglass era
(before1965) antique and classic boats, both sail and
power. Modem, but authentic appearing, replicas and
ex-military craft would be included.
I will be composing a register of such vessels.
Any boat owners who might be interested in having
their boat in the movies can send me a description of
the craft and include color photos showing side, bow-
on and stem views. These pictures should be taken
with a background free of other boats' masts,
telephone poles and different clutter that might
misconstrue the vessel's profile. These boats must be

register, and the boat owners will be compensated if

Some of the most pressing threats to be discussed
include the perplexing phenomena known as "coral

degradation of the reef structure by commercial and
noncommercial user groups.

management of the Keys and their living resources.

which need redress.
Your grouping of other projects with our

facility including a micro brewery, needs some
clarification. The other projects referred to in the article

To the Editor:
At 6 p.m. on December 10th, the liveaboard
boating residents and dock-homeowners of Fort
Lauderdale will have an unparalleled opportunity to
express their opinions at the City Commission
chambers, 100 North Andrews Avenue.
The liveaboard boaters, the only homeowning
group in America without civil rights, must take this
opportunity to express its indignation of the proposed
liveaboard registration and subsequent inspection fee.
The homeowners likewise should express their
outrage at yet another example of government intrusion
into private affairs, i.e., the city's belief that it has the
right to tell homeowners that they can or cannot rent
their own docks to whomever they wish.
That government, whether federal or local, has the
unmitgiated temerity to feel it has the right to dictate the
private lives of its citizens is unconscionable.
If the city really feels that liveaboard boaters cause
such high levels of pollution, perhaps they should
monitor houses with fireplaces; for that matter they
should look into any house which uses over a certain
amount of electricity or water each month. These
houses pollute at ten to twenty times the rate of
The point here is, when does government
meddling into our lives stop? The answer must be

Q: I have a 31-foot sailboat which I really enjoy. The
motor is fine and she sails like a dream. Everything is great
about it, but, the gelcoat finish on the deck and cabin is
flaking and chipping. I've taken good care of this boat,
washing and waxing it. I can't understand why this is
A: While hull and deck maintenance is not my idea of
fun, you can go two ways: You could hire a boat refinisher
and have the boat re-done, or you can take the task on
yourself. There's lots of work in sanding, removing rails
and fittings, etc., but it can be done. Great paints are on
the market mixes and two-parts and epoxies. Any good
paint store can advise you. Get a little background before
you start and get prices first
Q: I have an outboard that runs okay. It starts easy. I
bought it used from a private party who was going to
Europe. I never got a manual with it and I need one because
of an argument I'm having with a buddy of mine. I've never
mixed oil with my fuel tank and my friend says I1l ruin the
motor without an oil mixture to lubricate the outboard.
Please settle this.
A: I really need to know what type of engine you
have. There are four store engines that have oil in the
crankcase. (They have a place to drain oil and a dipstick).
There are two stroke engines which must have oil mixed
with gas in the fuel tank. There are engines with oil
injection built in the engine itself. Go to any marine store
which handles your make of motor and they will get you a
manual that will tell you whether to use a mix or straight
Q: My boat has a built-in fuel tank in the bottom of
my hull. My gauge in the fuel tank is defective. I've
checked my dash unit and it's fine. When they built the
boat there was only one way to get at the gauge lift the
deck. There must be a simpler way.
A: They can really build some stupid set ups. I've
done a few of these gauge set-ups by locating the sending
unit and cutting deck opening and installing a deck plate
from a marine store of making your own. Then you can
install a new unit. It will take some fishing around to
locate the sending wire for help. Look though the hatches

to cut. When you find the sender, cut carefully to avoid the

The Fort Lauderdale Area Association of Realtors
is co-sponsoring the 20th annual Winterfest Boat
Parade, Dec. 14.
In the Shoreline Decorating Competition, property
and business owners from Port Everglades to Lake
Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach, are encouraged to
put up holiday decorations.
The decorating competition adds holiday cheer to
the boat parade route when homes, condos and
. businesses display artful decorations, says Steven
S David, president of the Fort; Layderdile Area
i Association of Realtors.
'"If you're aboard a boat or yacht in the Boat
Parade, it's a stirring sight to see and hear," David
said. "The entire Intracoastal area is ablaze with
colorful and festive lights of all designs, colors and
brilliance, and this definitely puts one in a good, old-
fashioned holiday mood."
Thousands of people are expected to congregate
along the banks, bridges and condo balconies along
the parade route.
The Realtors Shoreline Decorating Competition is
completely separate from the boat parade competition,
which is conducted by a separate Winterfest task force.
"The response over the years has been great, but
we're hopeful more and more homeowners, condos,
businesses and especially neighborhoods will join us
in helping to make this year's decorating competition a
super climax to Winterfest," said spokesperson Steve
Decorated properties will be judged Wednesday,
Dec. 11, from aboard a yacht on the Intracoastal from
6 to 11 p.m. Winners will be announced that night
The competition~tjiludcs five categories. priVate
',homes; restaurants aind .lpunges, marine arid
:o.mmeri'al' businesses, i6w' rise condos and
apartments and high rise condos and apartments.
Entries will be judged on theme compliance and
originality, overall composition, use of lights and
accessory props, and use of grounds/buildings.
A plaque will be awarded for the best decorated

Dock rental hearings have been set by the Fort
Lauderdale City Commission for 6 p.m. on December
10 at City Hall. In October, the commissioners voted
to accept the Waterways Master Plan drafted over a
two year period by a panel made up of members of the
city's Marine, Zoning and Parks Advisory Boards.
However, the commission voted to table any city
ordinance changes recommended in the report till after
the public hearing.
Debate is expected to center around whether or not
to vigorously enforce a ban on private dock rentals in
waterfront neighborhoods. The master plan suggests a
new law allowing only overnight moorings behind
single family homes and only if they secure a city
permit to do so. The city currently has a dock rental
ban, but it is difficult to enforce and widely ignored.
BOC Race officials reject
Broward's starting point bid
By M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writer
Organizers of a major singlehanded round-the-
world sailing race has turned down Broward County's
offer to host the start of the next BOC Race in August
1994. Fort Lauderdale's hot summer weather and
isolated docking facilities fo~ he BOC fleet were cited
- as reasons for dhe decision, The race committee is still
considering alidksonville, Fla.; Charleston, S.C.;
Norfolk, Va. and Newport, R.I.
Newport has hosted the start and finish of the first
three BOC Races; however, race officials fear the town
has taken the race for granted in the past.
Several ports in England and Wales are being
considered for the finish of the 27,000-mile race.
Last years race generated an estimated $1.5 million
for the local Newport economy.
The Whitbread Round-the-World Race will be
stopping over at Broward County's Port Everglades in
the Spring of 1994. The Whitbread made its first
North American stopover in Fort Lauderdale in 1990.

PB shores damaged from storm surge
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
Palm Beach County is still recovering from the
effects of a storm surge, which damaged seawalls,
eroded beaches, and destroyed part of Lake Worth's
Immense waves from a Halloween storm damaged
several beaches and parks in the north end of the
county, destroyed dune walkovers, and demolished a
lifeguard stand. The Jupiter Beach/Carlin Park area
near the Jupiter Inlet received the brunt of the damage,
with an estimated $.75-million worth sand loss. In
addition, it is expected to cost about $20,000 to replace
several dune walkovers which were lost or badly
Bob Clinger, an engineering coordinator with Palm
Beach County's Department of Environmental
Resources (DERM) related that the beaches and dunes
held up pretty well throughout most of the county.
Clinger stated, "If you looked at the county as a
whole, it fared very well from a dune/beach standpoint
- we found more beaches that had accreted, as
apposed to those that had lost sand as a result of the
One of the most popular fishing spots in the
county, the Lake Worth Municipal Pier, sustained
heavy damage from the storm, as 210 of its 940 feet
were lost from the effects of waves that crashed seven
Peanut Island parcel to become sand dump
Under an agreement reached with Port of Palm
Beach commissioners, 40 acres of Peanut Island will
be sold to the Florida Inland Navigation District
(FIND) for $2.2-million.
FIND will use part of the area as a sand dumping
site for spoil. The rest of the land will become a
passive park. Statewide rule would limit boat speed to
30 miles per hour.
A proposal to limit boating speeds throughout all of
Florida's waterways to 30 miles per hour has met with
mixed reaction. Those in favor of the rule say it is
necessary to help eliminate boating accidents and to
protect the endangered Florida manatee.
Dave Carson, of Palm Beach County's Department
of Environmental Resource Management, commented:
"The 30 mph speed is still pretty fast in the water; I
don't think it's going to do much to protect the
to eight feet above the pier's deck at high tide.
Burton Smith, public works director for the City of
Lake Worth, stated, "We had waves of 22 to 24 feet.
The part of the pier that was lost was out in the area of
the breaking waves; they tore down pilings and bents."
It is expected to cost the city of Lake Worth
$700,000 to repair the pier. There is currently some
debate as to whether to repair the pier at its present 730
feet or return it to its previous 940-feet length. In
addition to the pier's damage, about $100,000 worth
of weather and tide measuring equipment were washed
overboard as a result of the storm waves.
Also sustaining damage were the sand transfer
plants at the Lake Worth and Boynton Beach inlets. An
estimated $35,000 dollars worth of damage was done
to the Boynton Inlet sand transfer plant alone.
Currently, county officials are assessing ways to
better protect the beaches from future storms of equal
or greater intensity.
Clinger talked about three ways to help offset
damage from future storms. First, a stronger dune
system stabilized with vegetation is needed to protect
the beaches, especially those areas with a low profile.
Second, he suggests more feeder beach projects south
of all inlets, which would put more sand back into the
system, and thus better maintain shorelines. Third,
increased efforts are needed to improve -sand-
bypassing methods at inlets. To that end, the Jupiter
Residents of Palm Beach Shores want to
ban weekly art show
Residents of Palm Beach Shores have swayed the
Town Commission to ban the weekly art show and
festival at Sailfish Marina. They complained of noise
and parking problems generated by the show.
However, some residents approve of the weekly
show because it attracts visitors to the motels and
restaurants in the area. Sailfish Marina is refusing to
drop the weekly sunset celebration.
Runoff may cause lake algae blooms
A University of Florida researcher is saying that
farm runoff and the addition of phosphorous into Lake
Okeechobee is responsible for the algae blooms which
have consistently threatened the lake's water quality.

study which should confirm the exact causes of the

Dade News December 1991 Waterfront News )
Biscayne Bay home has deep nautical roots
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Seafarers and homeowners can share interests with
history buffs at The Barnacle, in Coconut Grove, the
oldest Dade County residence in its original location.
Micco, a sloop designed and built by Commodore
Ralph Middletown Munroe in 1891, is protected by a
boat shed with an inviting boathouse nearby.
The Barnacle the home Munroe designed,
engineered and built overlooks Biscayne Bay from
Silver Bluff, a limestone ridge offering protection from
storms. The house, too, has its attraction for mariners.
Munroe explored much of Biscayne Bay and
surrounding waters and was the first commodore of
Biscayne Bay Yacht Club.
An engineer by education, he was a yacht
designer, wrecker, oyster farmer, wood carver,
machinist, and scion of William Munroe, first
manufacturer of mass-produced lead pencils.
Munroe came to Florida from Staten Island, N.Y.
in 1877, established his winter home here four years
In 1886 he purchmsed 40 acres of Coconut Grove
bayfront for $400 plus a small sailboat he designed.
A year later, he built a two-story boathouse -
reputedly the first structure built on the bay's
From this home/office/workshop he became a
federally-licensed wrecker and continued to design
yachts primarily large and small shoal-draft sailboats
designed for South Florida and Bahamas waters. At
least 56 boats of his design are documented by the
state; most plans were lost when the boathouse was
destroyed by the 1926 hurricane.
By 1891 his flourishing business had outgrown
the boathouse and he designed and built a bachelor
bungalow. Christened 'The Barnacle' the structure
reflects Munroe's marine background.
The octagonal shape resembles the marine animal
that inspired it. Cabinets gracing many rooms could
have been lifted from a yacht design. A square-hipped
roof slopes upward from comers aligned with the
primary compass points. Compass points also were set
. in the patio at the front of the house facing the bay.
Almost everything at The Barnacle has a nautical
story. A faceless sundial, almost as old as the house,
has a pointer of scrap copper recovered from a Key
Biscayne wreck. Mementoes of salvage efforts are
incorporated throughout the house.
When the Ingrid sank with a million running feet
of lumber, little was recovered by the owners. Munroe
tendered the only offer when salvage rights were bid
and $1 bought 800,000 running feet of lumber. Since
he also owned the only local lumber mill, he made a
Sometimes, however, the sea was a savage foe.
Haroldine, a 200-foot, four-masted schooner sank
enroute to Key West. A large bronze capstan head was
salvaged and adapted for use as a gong The
The Commodore gleefully had bid $7.50 for
salvage rights reckoning the masts alone to be worth
several thousand dollars. However, Haroldine broke
up in a gale before the masts were salvaged. Retrieving
what could be recovered from the wreck, Munroe
shipped a steam windlass, anchor and other items to
Jacksonville, only to have a wharf fire sweep across
the salvage ship, sending it and salvaged goods to the
The capstan head and figurehead were the only
returns from the $7.50 investment.
Originally, the two-story Barnacle was a one-story
structure, built on wood pilings later replaced by

sides, and with ample doors and windows to capture
breezes. A roof that sloped upward toward a full extra
story funneled warm air up and away through
transoms surrounding a central skylight. Transoms are
integral to every room, circulating air inside the house
and usually making lack of air conditioning
When marriage and an expanding family brought
demands for more space, the Commodore lifted the
entire structure with railroad jacks and inserted a new
ground floor. He expanded second floor rooms by
eliminating side porches, leaving only the front
veranda. The renovated second floor includes four
bedrooms, two baths, sewing room and sitting room.
The ground floor contains a living room, dining room,
and the original kitchen, with an extension.
Two other downstairs rooms contain displays
including marine artifacts and photographic gear. At
the north end of the ground floor porch the
commodore added a library/studio where he worked on
his boat designs.
The original property has shrunk to 5.1 acres. The
boathouse was rebuilt after the '26 storm, while
Micco, built in 1891, sits under its shed near remnants
of a marine railroad.

Coral reefs have 'rings' like trees
By ROSEMARY SULLIVANT
Special to the Waterfront News
Just as a tree records the history of the forest, so
does coral preserve the history of the sea. Analyzing
the stable carbon and oxygen isotopes in a coral
skeleton has given scientists another tool with which to
reconstruct the history of past climate. They have
found that within coral, whose bands like tree rings
mark the passage of years, is a record of both
anthropogenic and natural events that have changed the
environment in which the coral has grown.
Working with a core taken from a coral growing in
Florida Bay, Professor Peter Swart of the University
of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science and his graduate student Philip
Kramer found significant changes in the concentrations
of stable oxygen and carbon isotopes over the past 100
years. These fluctuations in oxygen and carbon
isotopes not only provide evidence of changes in the
water balance in Florida Bay caused by natural events
such as hurricanes, they also correlate with two man-
made events in the Florida Keys: the building of the
railroad in 1909 and establishment of drainage canals
in the Everglades. They reported the results of their
research at this month's meeting of the Geological
Society of America in San Diego.
"In seawater there is an equilibrium between
various isotopes of carbon and oxygen which is
dependent upon temperature. When temperatures goes

down or salinity increases, the amount of 180 in the
coral will increase," says Swart. "Similarly when
there is an increase in the oxidation of organic material
in seawater the amount of 13C in the coral skeleton will
In the analysis of the coral skeleton, Kramer and
his colleagues found that the concentration of 13C
decreased and that of 1O increased dramatically
between 1898 and 1914. These changes coincide with
the construction of the railroad in 1909, during which
some of the separate islands of the Keys were
connected by causeways, cutting off the exchange of
sea water between parts of Florida Bay and the Straits
of Florida. As a result the waters of the Bay became
more saline and the amount of organic oxidation
Kramer found another major decrease in 13C
between 1940 and the present. This change, he says,
might be explained in two ways. First, the
development of drainage canals in South Florida,
although greatly reducing the amount of fresh water
flowing from the Everglades into Florida Bay, may
have brought more nutrients into the Bay, increasing
production and eventual oxidation of organic material.
Second, the small number of hurricanes in South
Florida during the past 40 years has produced a
relatively stagnant water regime in the Bay, Hurricanes
increase the amount of water exchange between the
Bay and the open sea, allowing 13C enriched

"Using these two isotopic signals, we have a
record of major storms in the Florida Keys over the
past 100 years," says Swart. "By providing a record
of past events, such as the frequency of hurricanes,
isotopic analyses of corals may help us understand
long-term climate. It also gives us ways to compare the
climate of the past with that of today and help us
answer questions about whether the present situation is
normal or unusual. The past is the key to the future."

Special to the Waterfront News
KEY WEST, Nov. 12 As the Offshore
Professional Tour prepared to launch it's 1991 World
Championships here, three women drivers were on-
site preparing for Offshore racing in three of the four
professional racing classes.
One of these ladies, Dana Wiegl, of Cambridge,
Ontario (Canada), is preparing for the 1992 season by
racing in the 1991 Worlds. She and her
husband/throttleman, Mark, qualified for the
Championships by third overall in Pro I. Dana drives
Tuffn'Uff, a 32-footSkater catamaran, considered by
many to be one of the trickiest, most difficult boats on
While the Skater may be difficult to drive, Dana
has found a way to master it she obviously has a feel
for race boats. She was Rookie of the Year when she
came into Divisional Racing in 1989 and was
nominated for several awards in 1990.
Anna Dalva of Los Angeles is the driver of
Cigarette Lady II, a 42-footer built by Cigarette Racing
Team, the most famous manufacturer of Offshore race
boats of all time. The boat is powered by a pair of
1100 horsepower MerCruiser engines that produce
speeds of 115 miles an hour.
Cigarette Lady II competes in the International
Open Class or when racing divisionally in
APBA's Sportsman D Class. Teamed with throttleman
Thaddeus Findley, and with husband Morris as
navigator, Cigarette Lady was second place overall in
1990 in the Pacific Offshore Power Boat Racing
Association's Super Vee Class, and in 1989 won the
West Coast Divisional High Point Series.
Today, she is the only woman racing Open Class
- where Betty Cook made her incomparable mark by
winning three World and two National championships.
and, she says, "I'm going to beat all of Betty Cook's
records." A tall order, but this Cigarette Lady is the
mother of three, works as a phlebotomist at Cedars
Sinai in LA, surfs, skis, sings, writes and records pop
and rock'n'roll music and, of course, goes boat racing.

Betty Cook who died earlier this year. "I want to be

Greager, who will team with throttleman Rick
Doria (second place in the Offshore Professional
Tour's Pro II Class in 1991 and winner of the World
Championship in 1990), has done well in her first two
years in offshore.

Classic boats draw enthusiastic crowds
By ED WISER
Special to the Waterfront News
Nostalgia reigned supreme in Martin County last
month as the Stuart Yacht Club and Marina played
host to the Fourth Annual Antique and Classic Boat
Regatta. The Nov. 16 event drew 26 boats from
throughout south Florida ranging from 16 to 70 feet in
length. The public was invited and admission was
Spectators were able to see each boat at the dock
and underway at the "Judging Review" on Saturday
and Sunday's "Grand Boat Parade" in the St. Lucie
River. Many owners held open house and wooden
boat aficionados enjoyed the high quality interiors of
Trumpy's, Elco's, and Chris-Crafts, among others.
One factor set this show apart from all others,
however. "Honey the Chicken," a young lady dressed
in a chicken suit, made her appearance on Saturday as
the living figurehead aboard Courier, a vintage 1939
Grebe 53' motor yacht based in Fort Lauderdale. This
could only happen in south Florida.
The show was organized and presented by Antique
Yachting, Etc. under the leadership of Jensen Beach
resident Marge Pratt. A transplanted Bostonian, Pratt
was instrumental in the establishment of a similar
gathering in her hometown.
This experience paid big dividends when she
decided to extend the tradition to the Treasure Coast.
She describes Antique Yachting as "a non profit
association working for the preservation and
appreciation of antique and classic vessels and the
waters in which they operate."
As a customary, awards were presented in a
number of categories.
Oldest Boat in Show, Bobcat, a 23-foot Alden
launch circa 1926 is owned by Carolyn Weaver of

Dan Jelsema aboard Stella Pc
Dan Jelsema aboard Stella Pc
On April 1, 1989, 16-year-old Dan Jelsema left
Key Largo, Florida, on his attempt to become the
worlds youngest solo circumnavigator, the youngest
ever to sail solo around the world. According to the
Guiness Book of World Records, if Dan completes his
voyage at an age less than 21 years, 2 months, he will
break the.record. Dan will be 20 on April 24, 1992,
and he is trying to be home before then. Dan has
already become the youngest ever to solo the Pacific,
after completing a voyage from the Galapagos Islands
to Tahiti in 21 days. At present, Dan is somewhere in
the Indian Ocean, on the final 12,000 miles of his
Dan set sail down the Mississippi from his home in
Spring Lake, Michigan in October of 1988 aboard a
tiny 20-foot sailboat He left a letter telling his father of
his intentions: "The reason for my leaving without
talking about it with you is because this trip is as
important as life itself to me, and I couldn't risk you
not letting me go," said Dan. "I am not trying to
'escape' but I hope by leaving I will convince you how
much I really want to do this."
:'Realizing how serious his son was, Dan's father,
Jack Jelsema, decided to help his son purchase a
larger, 30-foot Seawind ketch, one more suitable for a
attempts to sail into
k of Records-
in the South Pacific earlier this year.
voyage of such magnitude. They outfitted the boat,
named Stella Polaris, in Key Largo, Florida, while
based at the home of Dan's grandmother, Marge
Jelsema. Incidentally, Marge and her husband, Melvin,
began the family sailing tradition by sailing down the
Mississippi on their honeymoon in 1935.
Dan,the son of a sailor, began his official
circumnavigation in Georgetown in the Bahamas in
early 1989. Since leaving, Dan has run aground in
Jamaica, been jailed in Australia and fallen and broken
his front teeth in New Zealand. But he takes everything
in stride. As Dan's father said, "We older folks see all
the danger and warning signs to cause fear and
uncertainty, but Dan moves on with nothing but a
world of confidence."
During the final 12,000 mile passage, Dan has
offered to raise money for the Florida Keys Children's
Shelter of Key Largo through a "Sailathon," whereby
people pledge to donate so much per mile of the final
leg of Dan's record-breaking attempt. According to
Edith Zewadski-Bricker of the shelter, "The response
has been tremendous and we're so thankful that this
remarkable young man has allowed The Children's
Shelter to use his voyage to help other young people."
Dan is expected to return to a hero's welcome in
Key Largo sometime in early 1992.

. . ..a
other great air mystery
By RICHARD WINER
Special to the Waterfront News
Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles.
The strange 1945 disappearance of fourteen men in
five Navy planes and a rescue plane with thirteen more
flyers that vanished during the search is well known to
Floridians. However, there is another air mystery that
is even more bizarre than Flight 19's mishap. It
concerns the fateful round-the-world flight attempt of
aviatrix Amelia Earhart and her co-pilot Fred Noonan.
the flight itself was an undertaking that began in Miami
and ended a half world away.
As of this writing, an expedition is being organized
to renew the probe that came to an abrupt hall so many
years ago. Like many researchers who preceded them,
Oceaneering, Inc. hopes to solve the Amelia Earhart
mystery once and for all.
Miami was so intrigued with the enigma that the
city went to the extent of naming one of its airfields
after Amelia Earhart. How did Miami play such a
pivotal role in the Earhart mystery? It all happened in
"Stop all engines!" came the command from the
bridge of the United States Coast Guard cutter Itasca.
Every available man was on deck listening their cars
tuned as they waited for the sound of an airplane's
engines. A signalman atop the bridge placed the
captain's speaking trumpet against his car. All hands
waited and listened for the far-off drone of the
approaching plane. Only an occasional wave splashing
against the ship's hull disturbed the predawn silence.
The Itasca wallowed forlornly in the long Pacific
swells. Shipboard radar was still five years in the
In the cutter's radio shack, operators, their cars
sore from the constant pressure of the earphones
clamped around their heads, listened. They
manipulated their aerial controls and listened again.
Still nothing. It was nearly dawn. To the cast the first
streaks of daylight were beginning to claw their way
over the horizon.
The drama had started a month earlier, during
another dawn. It was June 1, 1937. A sleek, silver
twin-engine Lockheed Electra roared down the runway
at Miami, beginning what could have been the first

round-the-world airplane flight. Piloting the plane was
world-renowned aviatrix Amelia Earhart, the first
woman to fly alone across the Atlantic and the first
woman to fly solo from Hawaii to California; also, she
was the first person, man or woman, to attempt an
around-the-world flight. Her copilot and navigator was
Fred Noonan, Pan American's first navigation
The first leg took the plane to Dakar in French
West Africa. From Dakar the sleek new plane winged
out across Africa and the Arabian Peninsula to such
Kiplingesque places as Karachi, Calcutta, Akyab,
Rangoon, Singapore, Java and Timor. Several delays
occurred in Indochina owing to problems with the
mechanical and navigation instruments.
From Timor the fliers continued to Darwin,
Australia, and thence to New Guinea. Fatigue from the
22,000 miles they had flown was already showing on
their faces when they arrived at Lac, New Guinea on
June 30. They told of dozing when they should have
been navigating. Their bodies were aching from
inactivity. Coordination had become painstakingly
difficult and ahead of them was not only the longest
but also the most arduous part of the flight.
That leg would take them from Lae to a little speck
of an island lying one-half a degree north of the
equator. Howland Island, standing only a few feet
above sea level and measuring one-half mile in width
and three times that in length, is little more than a coral
rock in a vast expanse of empty ocean 2,556 miles cast-
northeast of Lae. The entire distance would be over
open water. It would be the longest non-stop flight yet
A new unused airstrip was just completed on the
island, but facilities for communications there were
almost nil. Thus, the Itasca patrolled the approach to
the island so the aviators could home in on its
frequency radio direction finder.
Sweat-soaked, Miss Earhart and Noonan climbed
aboard their Electra at mid-morning on July 2. The air
was hot and humid. Dense jungles lining both sides of
the airstrip blocked any breeze that might have stirred
the stagnant air. They had put aboard the maximum
amount of fuel with which the plane could become
airborne. It was more gasoline than they had yet
carried. Having left all of their personal belongings
behind, the fliers carried only their toothbrushes and a

the extra fuel, they removed everything nonessential to
At 10:00 a.m., a few dozen whites and nearly a
thousand Papuan natives watched as the aircraft raced
down the runway. It became airborne only at the last
second before reaching a cliff at the end of the strip.
Their airspeed would be no less than 150 miles per
hour, but anticipated headwinds would extend the
seventeen hour flight to twenty hours. Nevertheless,-
they carried enough fuel to remain aloft for over
twenty four hours. Actually, they would arrive at their
destination before they took off. Amelia Earhart would
be flying back into yesterday, for it would still be July
1 at Howland which lay across the International
Dateline (the 180th meridian).
The plane, designed for long-distance flying, had a
Bendix radio-compass for homing in on broadcast
signals, a powerful voice radio, and a variety of the
latest navigational equipment. Miss Earhart and
Noonan would fly all that day and through the night.
They expected to be approaching the vicinity of
Howland around daybreak. The Itasca anticipated
being able to communicate with them several hours
before dawn when Miss Earhart would be sending a
progress report, using her call letters KHAQQ.
By the end of eight hours, the fliers had traveled
over 1000 miles. At 8,000 feet, they were above most
of the bad weather and squalls along their course. Miss
Earhart transmitted her reports on schedule.
Everything was going well. As the plane's distance
from Lae increased, the signals received at the New
Guinea field grew, weaker and after about 1,100 miles
faded out altogether. The Lockheed was out of all
radio range. There would be silence for the next 1,000
miles, or until communication with the Itasca could be
established. Earhart and Noonan were on their own.
Amelia Earhart transmitted on the quarter past and
the quarter before the hour. On the half hour and the
hour, the Itasca was to send routine weather reports.
Shortly after midnight, the cutter started
broadcasting signals for the plane. Throughout the
early morning hours, those aboard the Itasca awaited
word from the aircraft. Expected arrival time at
Howland was around 0800. At 0245 a.m. the ship's

AMELIA EARHART, FROM page 16
radio operator thought he heard the call letters KHAQQ
and the message "Cloudy and overcast." However,
due to intense static, he couldn't be sure. Several more
times during the pre-dawn hours, they thought they
heard the plane signaling. In spite of this, there were
no replies to the Coast Guard ship's messages.
At 0615, Howland time, the voice of Amelia
Earhart broke through a barrage of static. "We are
about two hundred miles out. Please take a bearing on
us, and call in one half hour. I will whistle into the
microphone." Then again static overrode the plane's
signal before a bearing could be taken.
At 0645, Miss Earhart's voice came in loud and
clear. "Please take a bearing on us, and report in half
an hour. We are about one hundred miles out."
However, she stopped whistling before the ship could
get a fix.
The Itasca radioed back, "Please transmit on the
marine frequency of your telegraph transmitter." No
response. Again, "please use marine frequency." The
cutter's radioman pleaded with the aviators to use the
marine transmitter, because there was too much
interference over the other radio. They received only
silence. (In those days voice radios were still in their
infancy and did not have the range and power of
telegraphic communications such as the marine
transmitter.) Then at 0742, KHAQQ came in loud and
clear but sounded concerned. "We must be on you, but
we cannot see you. Our gas is running low. Been
unable to reach you by radio. Our altitude one
thousand feet. Please take a bearing.".
Again the ship's radiomen swung their direction-
finding antennas' loops. But due to heavy static, they
could not obtain a bearing. They pleaded again with
the Lockheed to switch to the marine radio so they
could get an immediate fix. Silence.
Two minutes before the scheduled arrival time,
Miss Earhart's voice again broke through the static.
"We are circling but cannot hear you. Go ahead on
7,500 kilocycles either now or on the scheduled half-
hourly time." She had decided to try for a fix on the
cutter's Morse signals with her radio compass. "Wec
are receiving signals," said the aviatrix, "but are unable
to get a minimum (directional fix signal). Please take a
bearing and answer with voice on 3105."
There was too much interference for a voice fix.
"Please use your Morse Marine frequency transmitter,"
radioed the Coast Guard ship. Again, silence.
Pan American Airways, then based at Dinner Key
in Miami, had developed a new radio with which an
.airplane could communicate to ground stations. They,
in turn, could take bearings on the Morse signal and
almost immediately advise the pilot of his
whereabouts. It was more accurate and efficient than
any voice radios of the day. While helping prepare
Earhart's plane at the old Marine airfield in Miami, Pan
Am readied one for the aircraft.
But now, far out over the remote waters of the vast
Pacific Ocean, where it was needed, it could not help
her, because, a month earlier, as they were preparing
to depart Miami, Earhart had made a crucial decision to
remove the marine frequency transmitter. "We'll save
the weight," she said to Noonan. "Besides, neither you

nor I are very good telegraph operators, and I'd be
embarrassed trying to talk to ships with it."
Unaware that the device had been removed and
remained stored in an orange crate in the corner of a
hangar at the airfield in Miami, the Itasca continued to
request that she use the marine frequency.
It wasn't until 0845 that the Itasca again heard from
Miss Earhart. Although her voice was loud and
distinct, it expressed concern. "We are in a line of 157-
337. We are running north and south," she said. "We
have only a half hour of fuel left, and we cannot see
land." Then only static came through.

National Association of black SCUBA divers holds its first convention
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News writer
This November, the Bahia Mar Hotel in Fort
Lauderdale played host to the first convention of the
National Association of Black SCUBA Divers. Those
members present were African-American divers from
all across the country, some even coming from the
The Vice-Mayor of Fort Lauderdale, Carleton
Moore, gave a presentation to the divers,
congratulating their organization and welcoming them
to south Florida.
During the awards dinner, the black divers
organization presented an award to the Mel Fisher
Maritime Heritage Society. This award was given for
the Society's archaeological work done on the English
slave ship, the Henrietta Marie that sank around 1700
about 40 miles west of Key West. The merchant slaver
was discovered in 1972 by one of Fisher's contracted
treasure hunting groups that was looking for the gold-
and silver-laden Spanish ship, the Nuestra Senora de
In 1983, Neptune Explorations, an historical
research and underwater exploration group under the
direction of Henry M. Taylor, III, subcontracted with
Treasure Salvors, Inc., and resumed work on the site.
Artifacts from that shipwreck, including the ship's
bell, along with iron and leg shackles used to manacle
the slaves, were on display during the convention. One
of the archaeologists present was David Moore, who
had spent a few years in the 1980's as project
archaeologist working on the site of the Henrietta
Marie. The artifacts were brought to the convention by
a representative from Mel Fisher's Maritime Heritage
Society, Corey Malcolm.
Because it was a slave ship, NABS felt a deep
commitment to recognize the work being done on it as
a tribute to the clubmembers heritage. The historical
perspective it gives is important to everyone, and
especially important to African-American divers,
The National Association of Black SCUBA Divers
(NABS) was formed in January, 1991 in Washington,
DC by concerned black SCUBA instructors and
marine.educators. People had come from nine states
and three Caribbean countries. The meeting was called
the National Symposium of Black SCUBA Divers.
The group selected as its first president, Ric Powell,
an educator with the Dade County School System in

lawyers and SCUBA instructors being well
represented. One of the founders of NABS is an
educator, Dr. Albert Jose Jones, a marine biologist and
dive instructor. Dr. Jones teaches at the University of
the District of Columbia, and has been a part of the
Underwater Adventure Seekers based in Washington,
DC. Dr. Jones has extensive experience in traveling to
some of the world's far-flung diving destinations.
Powell advised the basis for starting this
organization was to promote SCUBA diving within the
African-American community. Powell, besides being a
school teacher, is an ex-Navy diver and SCUBA
instructor with the National Association of Underwater
Instructors and the Professional Association of Dive
In the past Powell says little has been done to
encourage the black segment of the population to
become involved in diving. Now that NABS has beem
formed, he is starting to hear from different segments
in dive industry. The Dive Equipment and
Manufacturers Association (DEMA) and the
Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI)
are expressing their support. Powell says, "The first
comment we usually hear is: 'It's about time.'"
NABS will soon obtain both an 800 number and a
fax number to facilitate member accessibility. Another
part of the club's functions will be to coordinate dive
trips for members. Trips for 1992 are being planned to
exotic and far away places such as Senegal, Costa
Rica, Bali and Morocco.
As a school teacher, Powell often sees black
youths stereotype themselves, feeling that SCUBA
diving is something that only whites can do. NABS,
hopefully, can do much to change that belief.
And Powell also saw that the few black people that
did dive often had difficulty finding other African-
Americans to share their diving adventures with. That,
Powell says, was a prime reason for the organization:
getting people together and networking within the
black community to promote black diving and the

Diving December 1991 Waterfront News 19
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
More than half the divers who suffer from the
bends are within the limits of dive tables. That's the
opinion of Dr. Harry E. Heinitsh, associate medical
director, South Florida Hyperbaric Medical Center,
Mercy Hospital, Miami.
"A good percentage of divers who suffer
decompression sickness don't do anything wrong, yet
on any day a diver can suffer from the bends and not
know why," Heinitsh said.
He compared it with driving down the road at 80
miles an hour and not knowing what caused the wreck.
"On a given day after a deep dive, a diver who
does not follow the tables will get sick. On the same
day, a diver will do everything right, stay within the
tables, and still get in trouble," Heinitsh said.
Conditions that should be factored into the dive
table figures include: dehydration encourages the
bends; as do heavy exercise before, during or
following a dive; a hangover, partying and/or drinking
heavily the night before a dive; lack of sleep, and age -
the older the diver the more vulnerable.
Accumulated time also can have an effect.
"Do a week of diving, starting on Sunday or
Monday and by Thursday or Friday the diver may
begin to show symptoms of the bends. Taking a day
off during the week helps get the nitrogen out of the
system," Heinitsh said.
Since South Florida is a major world dive center
and the hub of dive sites in the Bahamas and
Caribbean, a knowledge of the bends and how it
works is important.
Nitrogen narcosis is a state of euphoria and
exhilaration that occurs as normal air enters the
bloodstream at approximately seven times atmospheric
Symptoms range from non-severe pain in joints,
sensory loss in hands, arms or legs, weakness and
disturbed vision, to severe pain and unconsciousness.
The normal procedure after an afflicted diver
returns or is returned to the surface is to notify the
U.S. Coast Guard. Mercy Hospital has a helicopter
pad on the hospital grounds.
Time is an important consideration, Heinitsh said.
"From the time a diver afflicted with bends reaches
the surface, two or three hours delay can mean two or
three days in the hyperbaric chamber sometimes
longer. The sooner we see the diver the quicker the
clean-up time; the longer the delay in reaching the
hospital, the slower the recovery."
A hyperbaric chamber, much like an oversized iron

Paul Best, a French physiologist, first identified
the problem and produced a solution more than a
century ago while treating workers who built tunnels
under pressure. What is known as the bends today
originally was known or identified as Caisson

Trade group opposes proposed
boat speed limits regs in Florida
By CHERI JACOBUS and JOHN DANE
Special to the Waterfrnt News
WASHINGTON, DC The National Marine
Manufacturers Association (NMMA) today voiced
strong opposition to a new 30-mile-per-hour statewide
boat speed limit regulation proposed by the Florida
Department of Natural Resources (DNR).
According to NMMA president, Jeff Napier, the
DNR is attempting to regulate a statewide boat speed
limit after such a proposal failed to gain passage in the
Florida state legislature for the past two years. "The
Florida DNR is trying to push through the back door
what they were unable to get through the front door,"
Napier claims the proposed 30-mile-per-hour
speed limit for vessels in inland waters is unnecessary
in many areas of the states for boating safety, and will
substantially impede the state's water recreation
industry including water skiing, sport fishing and
waterfowl hunting. He also argues that the DNR move
will severely thwart Florida's chief industry, tourism,
at a time when the state is in need of every available
Additionally, under the proposed regulations, boat
and engine manufacturers would be unable to test
marine products and therefore would be forced to
consider relocating their research and testing facilities
out of state.
The NMMA, its member companies and other
marine trades associations, are planning to testify
against the 30-mile-per-hour speed limit proposal at a
public hearing scheduled for November 26, 1991, two
days before Thanksgiving, in Tallahassee. The DNR
has scheduled no additional hearings outside of

TALLAHASSEE The smaller the business, the
higher the tax burden under the proposed services tax,
according to a new survey by the state chapter of the
National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
Businesses with gross sales of $200,000 or less
spend 11 percent of their gross sales on outside
purchases the very purchases that would be subject
to a services tax.
Conversely, businesses with gross sales over $3
million only spend 2.4 percent of gross sales on
outside purchases and would pay a minimal services
"This regressive services tax will punish the
smaller companies that cannot afford to provide
services in-house," said Bill Herrle, state director of
the 18,000-member NFIB chapter.
"Smaller firms do not have the financial ability to
hire staff accountants, lawyers, advertising
professionals, and other multiple services that larger
companies have under one roof. Consequently, they
will be forced to pay a tax because they are small, or
worse yet, just starting out," said Herrle.
"Small businesses may not be able to reduce their
tax burden by reducing their spending on services.
Many services are business necessities, not niceties,"
said Herrle. "Every business, no matter how small,
needs an accountant, bookkeeper or attorney at some
According to the NFIB survey, businesses earning
between $200,000 and $350,000 in gross sales, spend
7.7 percent of those sales on outside purchases.
And as gross sales rose higher, the study found
that the percent used for outside purchases declines
Up to $750,000 in gross sales, 4.4 percent is
spent on outside purchases;
Up to $1.5 million in gross sales, 3.9 percent is
spent on outside purchases;

Buying a boat?'Avoid costly surprises
with a pre-purchase inspection
Most people wouldn't buy a house without first
bringing in an independent expert to thoroughly
inspect the premises for damage or potential trouble
spots. If you're buying a boat new or used you
should do the same thing.
Hiring an independent marine surveyor to inspect a
boat before you buy it is the best way to prevent a
major investment from turning into a major headache,
according to Boat Owners Association of The United
States, the nation's largest organization of recreational
A full bow-to-stem survey for most boats,
depending on the size and type, should cost between
$8 and $12 per foot. Independent marine surveyors
aren't licensed, however, so the Association suggests
that you keep a few things in mind:
Ask a surveyor about his or her qualifications and
experience. Get references and check them thoroughly.
Contact your insurance company and bank to see if
they also have any background information.
Be wary of a part-time surveyor. Anyone who
also sells equipment, repairs boats or works closely
with a boat broker may not put your interests first.
A survey isn't a guarantee that a boat won't have
a problem in the future. Ask to see a sample survey
and be sure you understand what the surveyor will be

Spanish-style seafood a hit
on Miami River
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News reviewer
Overlooking the Miami River is a quiet little
restaurant with a Hispanic flare that also doubles as a
There's a great view to be had at Joe's Seafood
Market & Restaurant, so dine outside, which is
preferable to the adjacent room where the seafood
market is located. However, three tanks of exotic fish
add much to the ambience.
On a recent Sunday evening visit, we enjoyed a
multi-course meal served by an attentive staff.
Right off the bat, our waitress brought out a small
plastic container of smoked fish dip with packaged
crackers. This small side dish comes with all entrees.
We then enjoyed a cup of grouper chowder
swimming with chunks of the native fish, and lightly
spiced with a hint of hot pepper sauce. A squirt of
fresh lime also helped liven up the flavor.
Other soups include a very expensive concoction
called Joe's Sailor Soup, ($16.50) a delicious combo
of scallops, crab claws, shrimp, fish, clams, lobster
It's strictly a seafood menu when it comes to
entrees. Possibilities include garlic shrimp ($14.95),
grilled snapper ($11.95), a squid platter ($7.95) and
stone ;cabs ($18.95), to name just a few.
, Alo listed or themenu is "Joe's special platters,"
featuring dishes such as Paella de Mariscas, ($15.95)
shell fish baked wih yellow rice, onions, green
peppers, pimentos and peas.
The Swordfish ($13.95) turned out to be a
generous portion grilled with a nice sauce and topped
with red and green peppers and onions. Yellow rice
was served on the side.
Bahamian conch steaks ($9.95) were marinated in
Joe's special sauce and were served in a more natural

Speaking of sauces, for an extra $1, patrons can

saturated with sweet heavy milk.

Hispanic custom, so expect the waitress to allow a
generous amount of time between courses.
