Residential dock rentals in political limbo
Sy M.G. SWIFT .
Waterfront News writer
"You can give your dock away," summed up Fort
Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle after a 5-hour public
hearing Dec. 10. "But, you can't rent your dock,"
Naugle cautioned residential homeowners, "and we're
going to go after the abuses."
The city commission rejected by a 4-to-l
consensus a proposal presented by a task force to put
teeth into the city's existing dock rental ordinances.
Plus, a motion to enforce current restrictions by
Commissioner John Aurelius of Coral Ridge died for

Broward Commission sends
Manatee Plan to DNR
By M.G. SWIFT
A proposed Manatee Protection/Boating Safety
Plan was accepted by the Broward Commission and
transmitted to the Florida Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) for review and comment. Included
in that proposal is a controversial seven-mile-per-hour
speed limit for the entire Intracoastal Waterway within
Broward County, which passed the panel by a mere 6
to 5 vote.
A "minority report" was also sent with the majority
proposal. However, the county commission prefaced
the dissenting opinion as "unofficial" and not
technically a "minority report" in a cover letter to the
state. Commissioner Gerald Thompson and task force
members John Grady, Frank Herhold, Margaret
Collins and Larry Locker all members of the task
force signed off on the minority report.
DNR will return the Manatee Plan with
suggestions of its own. The commission will then
have until June to forward to the Governor a final
proposal for approval by the State Cabinet. Broward is
one of 12 other Florida counties (including Dade and
Palm Beach) to undergo this routine.
waterfront residents attended the Tuesday evening
hearing at City Hall. Nearly one hundred spoke to the
commissioners pro and con about residential dock
rentals, mostly in favor of the illegal practice.
The mayor and City Commission have instructed
the city attorney to come back to them with a proposal
to clarify and redefine who the "occupants" of a
waterfront property are and what "uses" they are
Commissioner Jack Latona of Tarpon River
suggested that he and his colleagues break the dock
rental controversy into its component parts in hopes of
solving the whole. Latona suggested: 1. clarifying the
usage question; 2. vote up or down on the tougher
dock rental proposal and 3. finally, deal separately
with the residential dock rental issue (perhaps, treating
it like the seat belt law, a secondary enforcement
matter) or not at all. Latona suggested legislating
against abuses like: rafting, liveaboards and mini-
marinas in residential areas objective and observable
things -,and drop all references to "dock rental" in the
A motion to reject the Waterway Master Plan's
dockage ordinance died for lack of a second.
However, later in the commission's debate Mayor
Naugle forged a 4-to-i consensus (including himself,
Latona, Commissioner Carlton Moore of Northwest
Fort Lauderdale and Carry Keno of Victoria Park)
rejecting the proposal and instructing the City Attorney
to cook up a usage opinion.
Heeding City Manager George Hanbury's advice
not to take an extreme stand either way, but rather, to
stay with a status quo course, the City Commission
took no straight up or down vote.
Currently, the city only enforces the dock rental
ban on a complaint basis. The city lacks the staff to
more strictly enforce the law.
Despite the rejection of the panel's dock rental
ordinance proposal, the Waterway Master Plan task
force's overall report was generally praised by the
commissioners and several of the public who were
familiar with it
State to propose rules for live-aboards
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN & M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writers
WEST PALM BEACH After several pubic
workshops, the state will begin drafting a rule aimed at
regulating liveaboard vessels.
Problems have arisen over water quality and a lack
of sewage removal facilities, since the number of
liveaboards has increased, according to state officials.
The Florida Department of Natural Resources
(DNR) held one such workshop here, Dec. 17, which
was attended by about 100 people, mostly from the
marine industry and boaters.
Jim Marx, DNR's environmental administrator of
marine programs, told the group that his agency would
be flexible in drafting liveaboard regulations and
invited them to help draft the new rules.
Some at the hearing were displaying black balloons
with the words, "DNR's authority ends at the high
Marx reminded these people that his state agency
has the authority to regulate liveaboards anchored on
state submerged land.
Among those attending the public hearing was
Valerie Jones, president of Concerned Boaters, of
Stuart. Her organization is planning a National Water
Rights conference, Feb. 21-24 in Stuart, to discuss and
explore "issues surrounding growing regulations and
restrictions of the federal waterways
Jones' group has also filed a criminal complain,
with the state attorney's office, accusing city of Stuart
officials of violating Florida's public records law by
refusing to allow Concerned Boaters copy documents
discussed during a city dockage hearing in November.
The city attorney admitted to hiring a private
investigator to infiltrate the 1,000-member group of
boaters that has been feuding with the city for two
years over anchoring rights.

2 Waterfront News January 1992 Letters
The last bastion
To the Editor:
For the past decade there has been a cacophony of
voices claiming that boating is our "last bastion of
freedom." That the rights of industry to sell anything
to anybody was as sacred as the Ten Commandments.
That to demand that the purchaser of a boat, any boat,
have a minimum standard of competence, and prove it,
was equal to a frontal attack on the Constitution and
the Bill of Rights.
Well, Gentlemen, I am afraid we are now reaping
the seeds you have sown. Oh, we have our "last
bastion of freedom all right; we have no regulation
whatsoever, though we are millions by numbers, we
are a Babel of indistinct voices who have no clout, no
prestige, no influence and worst of all, no respect!
Our Government, be it Federal or local, has taken
us at our word. That "word," as it is heard by

FREEDOM, FROM page 2
government ears, is that boats are just innocent toys,
unworthy of notice by anyone except those who wish
to manufacture, market or purchase same. Since they
are so unworthy of notice and regulation and minimum
standards of user competence and are exempt even
from such things as mandatory liability insurance, they
are obviously "toys" in every sense of the word. Since
many of these "toys" cost astronomical sums of
money, obviously we, the owners, are all "fat cats"
who can afford not only the "toys," but extensive taxes
upon those toys.
Seems to me when I was a kid, getting my driver's
license was my ticket to freedom! Certainly not the
other way around. It has baffled me over the years
trying to conceptualize why and how these "last
bastion of freedom" types, could possibly rationalize
that demonstrating your competence and financial
responsibility and having a piece of paper to prove it,
could possibly intrude on your freedom?
For better or worse, our nation is a nation covered
by paper. Everyone must have a paper of some kind to
define his or her limits. You don't get a job without a
high school diploma. You can't teach without a
teaching certificate. You can't fly an airplane without a
minimum course and a license. You can't drive a car
without a license. You can't even get a SCUBA tank
filled without a license. Many of the previously
mentioned activities require less skill than operating a
boat, yet boating has managed to escape any
competence proving of any kind, despite the clear,
unequivocal demand yes, demand by the people
actually out there operating the boats.
Proof of this clear, unequivocal demand can be
seen in the BOAT/US member survey, in which
approximately 87 percent of the members responding
favored mandatory education and licensing.
BOAT/US, now a 400,000 member organization, is
the largest and most highly respected of all boat owner
organizations, though the other of which I have read,
have similar views towards mandatory education and
The boating industry has championed this frantic
call of our "last bastion of freedom" believing that to
do otherwise would hurt boat sales. I suggest to the
industry moguls that just the opposite is true. Sales
made to people on a casual or frivolous basis will
never be as sound as an industry based on those
persons who have taken the time and shown the
--"interest to learn something about that activity, first!.
The boating industry has built an industry with a
foundation of snow! That snow is now melting and the
industry collapsing. There is no cohesive material,
such as shared common experience like obtaining a
license to hold us together. Industry customers have
little faith in the boating industry because that industry
works at cross.purposes and does not support issues
that are vital to boaters. Some of these issues are:
public access to the water, anchoring rights,
unwarranted search and seizure by government
agencies, a blizzard of uncoordinated registration
requirements, proliferation of local ordinances that are
in direct conflict with federal regulations and most
important, competence of boating operators.
Since there is no shared concern with industry and
no respect shown to boaters by industry, is it any
wonder that government, any government, views all
boaters simply as cash cows?
I would plead with the major manufacturing
organizations, such as NMMA, to get together with the
major boater organizations and hammer out a realistic
mandatory education program to be administered at the
federal level. I suggest that a program of this nature
could indeed begin to heal our industry wounds,
,develop enthusiastic boaters and give us the clout and
respect we deserve. Industry, for its own, self
preservation, must help its customers combat the
overwhelming negative forces of the day. If the
industry continues on its present, ostrich-like course,
the freedom of boating will become yet another frontier
The "last bastion of freedom" should be a privilege
earned and have a piece of paper that says so.

To the Editor:
I read with interest your story in the Dec. issue re:
seven mph speed limit rule goes into effect sometime
I write this letter in hopes that your paper will
become the courier of future bad news to the
unsuspecting homeowner or marine industry business
If I may elaborate, I am a marine contractor and
infinitely more familiar with current rules and policies
that pertain to waterfront construction in South Florida.
I have watched the State of Florida's Department
of Natural Resources (DNR) and Dade County's
Department of Environmental Resources Management
(DERM) force waterfront homeowners to adhere to
outrageous and expensive policies and regulations.
While I support DERM and DNR's laudable
position in protecting and restoring South Florida's
environment, arbitrary unauthorized and at times
wrongheaded actions by these agencies do nothing to
support that goal.
Case in point is an Miami Herald article of 11/3/91,
regarding new state (DNR) requirements that requires
docks to be built over water that has at least four feet of
water at mean low water. Please note that the dock in
the article had to be built 300-foot seaward to obtain
Dock rentals in residential
To the Editor:
I am writing this in the hopes of helping you to
understand how vital the issue of dock rental in R-l
areas is to myself, my neighbors, and the City of Fort
When I bought my Hendricks Isle property in
1985 I had reason to believe that I was protected from
competition for dock rentals by non-commercial
properties by the city zoning ordinances concerning
same. I paid a high price for the property, as did my
neighbors, based on this protection. In the intervening
years we have seen this protection erode, as a result of
lack of code enforcement, so. that the value of our
properties has not kept pace with other classes of
Waterfront property in the city. NQw, it is prposed.to I
make private dock rental legal and that would cause a
severe financial handicap to me, and be catastrophic to
some of my neighbors. This would probably result in.
a loss of value to the private residence as well.
Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice rental land is
assessed by the County Assessor on the basis of
approximately $2150 per lineal foot of canal. He
arrives at this figure by using a standard rental rate of
about $300 per month per dockspace, minus a modest
Consider the economic consequences if this
proposal should succeed:
1. Dock rents would be depressed to as low as
$150 per month.
2. The market value, as well as the taxable value
of our properties would be reduced accordingly.
3. The city would lose revenue from its own
4. The city would lose revenue from its lease at
5. The city and county would lose tax revenue.
6. The state would lose sales tax revenue.
7. The cost of all city services to R-l areas,
especially garbage collection, fire and police
protection, and code enforcement would be increased.
8. Some property owners in our area would face
9. There would be no compensating economical
advantages to the proposal!
I have experienced that same mentality when
applying for dock projects in Dade County. Municipal
zoning codes are ignored, variance proceeding's are
lengthy and expensive, permit processes that used to
take four weeks now run into months and in some
cases even years to obtain.
Because of the four-foot rule, davits and boat
hoists will not be allowed, unless there is at least four
foot at mean low tide next to the seawall. This law in
effect eliminates 85 percent of the waterfront
homeowners from installing davits or hoists, which
forces the boatowner to either trailer or store their
boats. Both of these options are either costly or
prohibited by homeowners associations or city codes.
As with the seven mph law, we will once again be
caught unaware of new policies and regulations that are
being formulated, without any input from the people it
affects the most: waterfront homeowners, boat
owners, boat manufacturers, davit and boat hoist
Prior to April 15, 1991, DERM allowed docks in
Dade County to be built to 500 feet. The DNR since
required that docks be built allowing only 160 square
feet, even though their own policies, trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund (TIIF) specifically exempts
the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve from its
Finally, a word about the people who have
spearheaded this proposal. They are, in many
instances, legitimate waterfront property owners.
However, a great many of them derive their livelihood
from the marine industry. They clean, paint, repair,
manage, crew, deliver, broker, and polish boats, and
otherwise administer to the needs of the boating public.
All these are legitimate pursuits except that these people
have no boatyard in which to operate. They would
have the entire city be their boatyard. It would be a
disservice to the property owners to allow this to
happen. Calvin Landau
To the Editor:
Waterfront News is one of the few in the media
giving credit to the Pompano Christmas Boat Parade -
and they were the first of Florida's boat parades.
The parade was born in 1962 by boater Russ
Clayton. To celebrate his Christmas spirit, he placed
three Santas on board, under a spotlight, adding
Christmas music amplified from a record player.
Clayton then cruised up the Intracoastal and residential
canals. The idea received support and enthusiasm
from waterway residents. The next Christmas, 11
Pompano boaters joined him.
But it didn't mushroom to the proportion it is
today. U.S. Coast Guard's Flotilla #34 and the
Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce
worked together for several years promoting the
As public relations officer for Flotilla #34, I was
unable to get local or national support for the parade -
with the exception of Bill Mullen, then editor of
Pompano's Sun-Sentinel bureau. In 1970, Al
Moreland, then President of the Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce, obtained a listing in the
Discover America Travel Organization. From then on,
Pompano's parade grew and other cities jumped
aboard. Barbara Perry

I can only say go to where you bought that unit.

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 Ill 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 fuel.
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 that will help and use a
tape or ruler to measure where to cut. When you find
the sender, cut carefully to avoid the tank!
I would like a small rundown on electrical
connections for gauges, radios;,depthfinders, Lorans
and stereos. I've got a few electrical manuals. But,
they do mostly 110 volts and very few 12-volt or
marine connections. I would like to get some
instruction on boat and marine wiring.
A course on marine wiring and electrical circuits
could take weeks and much study. There are manuals,
but the best way is to follow the instructions on each
piece of equipment you buy. They all show the pluses
and minuses or grounds and where to tie into, whether
directly to the battery or to the fuse box. If you can
follow color codes and have the tools, strippers,
crimpers and soldering equipment you can follow the
diagrams and safely wire your boat. Get a tester for
your boat and go to it.

County targets derelict boats, owners
By EDWARD WISER
Waterfront News writer
Broward County has launched a multi-agency
effort to remove derelict vessels from navigable
waterways. Thus far the combined efforts of Broward
Sheriffs Office and the County Code and Zoning
Enforcement Division have led to the removal of 14
abandoned and sunken hulls. Most of the boats are
wood and range in length from 35 to 45 feet.
The greatest concentration of derelict vessels is
along the south fork of the New River between State
Road 84 and U.S. 441 and on the Dania Cutoff Canal
from 441 as far as U.S. 1.
Funds to support this task have been received from
Tallahassee through Florida's Derelict Vessel Removal
Program according to Sgt. Larry Whitford of the
sheriffs office marine unit.
Grants are awarded by the Department of Natural
Resources to counties statewide based upon the
severity of the local problem as outlined in each
county's application for funds. In the most recent
application, Broward County noted 28 derelict vessels
determined to be abandoned along navigable
waterways. After advertising for bids Resolve Towing
was hired to remove 14 hulls along the New River's
south fork in November. According to the firm's
president, Joe Farrell, the problem is more severe than
it appears on the surface. "We found boats inside of
other boats. Some had been run aground on long
submerged wrecks. I would say that some of them had
been there for as long as 20 years. "The work was

If there is no immediate pollution problem law
enforcement officials attempt to locate the vessel's
owner and have him take corrective actions. Since state

Pierce at Code and Zoning Enforcement, it can take
two years from the time a vessel is discovered and
reports submitted, until funds are available to remove
The City of Fort Lauderdale attacks the problem in
a somewhat different manner according to dockmaster
Jamie Hart. "There is so little grant money available
and the process is so lengthy that we don't bother with
it. We can't have these problems lingering in
Hart notes that usually the owner of a derelict
vessel is difficult to find or lacks the funds to raise the
boat. Using city ordinances, therefore, he frequently
bypasses the owner and goes after the owner of the
property where the boat is located. In so doing he
steers clear of the complexities of admiralty law. "We
can assess fines of up to $250 per day against a
property owner and so far we haven't had any
conflicts with admiralty counts." If the property owner
fails to pay his real estate can be liened. Hart goes
directly to the City Commission with a request for
funds and permission to hire a salvage firm to haul the
offending vessel. "We haven't had as much of a
problem with this as the county."
Hart notes that when a vessel is sunken or derelict
in a waterway and there is no legal or commercial tie to
nearby property the city usually pays for removal.
When a clear connection can be established with
adjacent property the property owner is considered
If you own property where a derelict or sunken
vessel is located:
Broward County does not currently target
property owners for legal action;
Fort Lauderdale property owners bear
responsibility for vessels on site. If a property owner
rents his dock and a vessel sinks at the dock, he is still
liable for removal costs;
Other municipalities several other south Florida
cities maintain Marine Units and hold property owners
as well as boat owners responsible for boat removal
If you own a sunken vessel or dump a vessel on
Broward waterways, you can be prosecuted under
Florida Statute 823.11 "Abandoned and Derelict
Vessels," and 403.413, "Florida Litter Law," or
298.66 which addresses obstruction of waterways.
The latter is a third degree felony punishable by up to
$5,000 in fines and five years in prison.
If the vessel leaks pollutants, fuel or hazardous
waste the penalties under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990
can be as high as $25,000 and five years in prison.
Note: Federal, state and local laws allow for both
criminal and civil actions against owners of sunken
vessels or those who are responsible for abandoning,
sinking or beaching vessels on navigable waterways.

City runs boatyard for now
The City of Miami is temporarily operating Dinner
Key Boatyard on a do-it-yourselfbasis, following City
Commission action in early December. The policy will
continue until the commission designates a new
Yet to be decided is whether a new bidder can be
selected from an existing list presuming the bidder is
still interested or whether new bids must be solicited.
Attorneys will decide and advise commissioners.
Meanwhile, Assistant City Manager Herb Bailey is
the man responsible for overseeing the boatyard. By
the end of December the City Manager's office expects
to turn over boatyard duties to Parks and Recreation
until a new operator is designated.
For the present there will be no mechanics on hand
and aside' from renting slips and pumping gas, few
services will be offered, Bailey said.
One consideration in obtaining a new operator may
be the city's ability to be grandfathered with respect to
construction of new docks and appurtenances now
difficult to be permitted under new rules.
Key Biscayne to challenge Seaquarium
Key Biscayne, recently created as a government
entity after a referendum, is coming out of its corner in
a litigious mood. The newly- elected board of Trustees
has voted unanimously to challenge both Dade County
and Miami Seaquarium over approval of $70-million
slated for improvement and expansion of the marine
attraction which has not held its own against Florida's
newer and larger theme parks.
An anti-development tide helped trigger the
community's incorporation this year when resentment
built toward a proposed tennis stadium and other
modified uses of open space and park lands.
Six months ago the Seaquarium won unanimous
approval of a plan to expand and upgrade existing
facilities. Projections were that visitors to the park
would triple, further increasing traffic on busy
Rickenbacker Causeway, the only land access to the
Questions remain as to whether the village
government will join existing suits filed by the Key
Biscayne council, organized before the local
government was formed, or take over one or more of
the suits entirely.
"Everybody on the island is opposed to this," said
Trustee Mortimer Fried. "The people want to put a
stop to problems that will be caused on this island
because of Seaquarium's greed.
Challenges already filed claim that Dade
ordinances were violated when the county approved a
variance for Seaquarim parking, and that the additional
Traffic would push Rickenbacker Causeway above
legal limits. Council was expected to recommend the
village's best legal options before the first of the year.
Columbus fleet replicas to make Miami
landfall in February
The Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, or their present
day images, are expected to make a landfall off Miami
Beach February 15 and sail to Bayfront Park, where
they will dock for two weeks. The City of Miami has
promised to work with the Discovery of America
Quincentennial Committee and the umbrella Spain '92
Foundation, in welcoming the replicas of Columbus'
fleet which will make Miami its first port of call in the
Details of programs to be offered during the visit
have not been completed, according to Maricela Gago
of the local committee. National representatives have
been in Miami during December, and an agenda should
have been hammered out before the end of the year.
Some 15 or 20 cities are on the list for the trio of
ships, and late in the year the fleet is expected to visit
the Bahama Islands, where Columbus is reputed to
have called at Watling's Island (now San Salvador),
with a further visit to the Dominican Republic.
Miccosukee Indians want to lease Miami
Miccosukee Indians have requested a lease on
about one-third of the 10-acre Sewell Park at the
Miami River and Northwest 17th Avenue. The Indians
already own a two-acre site adjacent to the park.
The tribe wants a 20-year lease and would erect
chickees for artists, a gift shop, an alligator wrestling
arena, and a snack bar. Indians would maintain the
entire park and return to the city a portion of an
Such an endeavor would showcase the'
Miccosukee culture, providing a showcase for the tribe

to the loss of their recreation area while some'
supporters discount the recreational value to the public
under its present use.

Palm Beach dragging feet on
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
As other Florida counties finish up their manatee
protection plans for submission to the Department of
Natural Resources, Palm Beach County municipalities
continue to disagree on how to develop their own plan.
In an effort to expedite the process, DNR recently
sent a survey to the various Palm Beach municipalities
to ascertain their views on how best to proceed in
producing a comprehensive plan. Thirteen "key
counties" have been required to submit manatee
protection plans which include information on speed
zones, boater and manatee education, and marina
Some of the proposals recommended to facilitate
the planning process include: establishing a
countywide task force similar to those utilized by the
other 12 counties; obtaining boat ramp and marina
siting plans from each municipality; having the league
of municipalities coordinate the planning process; or
having the county staff develop the manatee plan.
Mary Morris, an environmental specialist with
DNR, stated, "We [the department] have yet to take a
position on this issue in Palm Beach County; we want
to find out how each municipality would like to
proceed before making a final decision,"
State officials and environmentalists say a
comprehensive manatee protection plan is needed to
stem the tide of manatee deaths in recent years which
threaten to extinguish the species.
Last year there were about 170 manatee fatalities,
which is down slightly for a total of 206 killed
statewide in 1990. Close to one-third of all manatee
deaths in 1991 were caused by collisions with boats,
according to DNR statistics.
In Palm Beach County, there were five manatee
deaths in the county, with at least one of them
connected to boating.
State to propose rules for liveaboards
WEST PALM BEACH After several public
workshops, the state will begin drafting a rule aimed at
regulating liveaboard vessels.
Problems have arisen over water quality and lack
of sewage removal facilities as the number of
liveaboards has increased.
Boynton to obtain downtown mangroves
BOYNTON BEACH The Diocese of Palm
Beach County has agreed to lease 10 acres of land
bordering the Intracoastal Waterway to the city of
Boynton Beach for 27 years.
The city is hoping to turn the mangrove area,
which makes up much of Boynton's downtown, into a
County may buy proposed resort in Juno
JUNO BEACH A major condominium and
resort project planned for Juno Beach has residents
worried that the character of their town would change
As a result of the planned project, Juno's
population of 2200 would more than double.
Because the project site is located on
environmentally sensitive land that is home to more
than 22 endangered or rare species, Palm Beach
County may ask the state to consider buying the parcel
with money from the recently passed $100-million
Water district may tax farmers to help
WEST PALM BEACH In order to help pay for
the Everglades cleanup plan, the South Florida Water
management District may tax area farmers to help pay
for the $300-600 million cost.
The Water Management District is also planning to
buy 35,000 acres of farmland to convert to filter
marshes as a way to control runoff.

Latin American visitors may have significant impact on Miami boat show
By GERI HABER
Special to the Waterfront News
MIAMI BEACH Greater economic stability in
Latin America is good news for the Miami
International Boat Show and Sailboat Show,
scheduled for February 13-19.
As the world's largest and most prestigious boat
show, the Miami show affords visitors an opportunity
to see the very latest in boats and marine products, and
to speak and deal directly with factory representatives.
Because of its geographic proximity to Latin
America, the show has traditionally been a favorite
destination for dealers, brokers and boating enthusiasts
from the region. For example, last year's show
inspired a 24-page feature spread in a popular Latin
American marine publication.
Show manager Dale Robbins predicts that this
year's show should see an even greater number of
visitors from Latin America.
"The economies of Brazil, Chile, Venezuela and
other Latin American countries have made tremendous
improvements, so we expect to see an even greater
participation from the entire region,' he said. "Already,
the number of inquiries from Latin America is far
ahead of last year.
According to Robbins, Venezuela is the largest
single source of Latin American visitors. Last year,
more than one-third of the total of Latin American
visitors came from Venezuela. "1992 should be more
of the same, since Venezuela's economy is much
healthier compared to last year," he said.
Robbins noted that the economies of Brazil and
Chile had made similar improvements. "Since both of
those countries have a significant amount of navigable
bodies of water, we expect to see a lot of visitors
originating from there," he said.
International participation has always been
important to the Miami International Boat Show and
Sailboat Show. The show's International Business
Center, located in the convention center, offers such
services as translations and faxing, providing a setting
where foreign visitors can conduct their boating
"The Miami show has long been a showcase for
the world's top boating manufacturers to debut their
new models and products for the public, said
Robbins. "The show generates more international
interest than any other boat show in the world."
The Miami International Boat Show and Sailboat
Show will beheld February 13-19, 1992 at the Miami
Beach Convention Center, the Biscayne Bay Marriott
Marina and at the Miami Beach Marina.

Mickey Watson, a veteran Florida Department of

director of the Department of Natural Resources. The
marine patrol is an arm of DNR.

and is not a candidate for the permanent job.
A selection committee is being formed to find a
permanent director, Mrs. Wetherell said.
"A final selection will be delayed until state
reorganization plans, currently being discussed by the
Legislature are resolved," said Wetherell.
Gov. Lawton Chiles and the Cabinet have proposed
reorganizing DNR, which could affect the marine
Mrs. Wetherell has also asked her staff to reconsider
a policy allowing Florida Marine Patrol officers and
their family members to hold commercial fishing
"I am concerned about the perception of it," Mrs.
Wetherell said. "But I'm also concerned about the
rights of individuals."

'Ever try sailing?' program popular
By KATHY GIBLIN
Special to the Waterfront News
NEWPORT, RI Organizers of the 1991
Newport International Sailboat Show (NISS) are
calling the "Ever Try Sailing?" program introduced at
the recent show a "great success," and have announced
plans for further expansion of the campaign at the
1992 Newport Boat Show.
The hands-on program offered non-sailors a first-
hand, "no strings attached" opportunity to experience
sailing. Participants were given a free ride around
Newport Harbor with a qualified instructor, choosing
from one of six sailboats of varying sizes. A shoreside
exhibit at NISS provided "Ever Try Sailing?".
participants with information about sailing schools,
"how-to" books and videos, yacht charters and other
Karla Little, NISS manager, said 633 people went
through the program over three days of the show (the
first day was rained-out). Calling the program a
"proactive attempt to help build the sport," Little said
feedback from "Ever Try Sailing?" participants at the
show was excellent. "People were genuinely excited to
have the chance to get out on a sailboat for the first
time. We could have put even more people through the
program if we'd had more boats and no inclement
weather," she said.
"The program proved tremendously popular,"
Little continued. "We hope we created bona fide
interest in some of those people, and they will now

become actively involved in the sport. Out goal is to
refine and expand the program for 1992, to encourage
even more people to give sailing a try."
The average age of the "Ever Try Sailing?"
participant was 27.8 years old; the majority of program
participants came from Massachusetts, followed by
Rhode Island, Connecticut and New York.
Additional follow-up is planned by the Newport
Yachting Center to determine subsequent sailing
activity by the "Ever Try Sailing?" participants.
Plans for the 1992 "Ever Try Sailing?" campaign
will include more sailboats and instructors, sailing
school and yacht charter raffles, and increased pre-
program promotion to encourage more people to

South Florida's other great air mystery
Last month "Part I" left off where Miss Earhart
and Noonan, her co-pilot, took off from Lae, New
Guinea on what was to be the longest and most trying
leg of their attempted 'round the world flight. They
had already passed the halfway mark. Once this
segment of their undertaking was completed, the rest
of their venture would be all downhill, and in ten days
they would be back in Miami from whence their
endeavor to be the first to complete flight around the
world commenced. Their destination was a speck of
land called Howland that was right smack in the
middle of nowhere and about the size of Bimini.
However, something went amiss.
Nearly sixty years have transpired, and today the
mystery of what happened to Amelia Earhart, Noonan
and their shining, sleek Electra has created as much
controversy among seafarers and aviation buffs as the
strange disappearance of the five TBMs and the
Mariner search plane that vanished off south Florida's
coast in 1945. Although Flight 19's notoriety resulted
from six planes and 27 men having vanished, Miss
Earhart's'disappearance ranks just as high on the
echelon of great air and sea mysteries because she was,
and undoubtedly still is, ranked as the greatest aviatrix
of all time.
As of this writing, several groups of explorers and
researchers are actively seeking the solution to
Florida's other great air mystery.
The radiomen on the cutter changed receivers,
rotated antennas, did everything they could. There was
only static. They transmitted and retransmitted for
another hour, which stretched into two more hours and
then three. Still, they received no further word from
Amelia Earhart. Every hand aboard the Itasca knew that
there would be no replies to the ship's calls.
Somewhere in that empty expanse of Pacific Ocean,
Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan had gone down. But
Though the plane was missing, hopes were up for
the safety of the two fliers. Officials at Lockheed stated
that the Electra, with the tanks empty and-the valves
closed, could remain afloat for hours and possibly
even for days. The plane carried a rubber raft, a flare
gun, life belts, emergency rations, and other lifesaving
paraphernalia. Searchers estimated from the strength of
its last signals that the plane could have gone down no
more than two hundred and fifty miles from Howland
Island. But in what direction?
A study:of weather conditions and surface winds
suggested that the lost plane had missed and overshot
the island and crash-landed somewhere to the north of
it. The ship began searching to the north. Hopes were
running high. The British freighter Moorby, bound for
Australia, diverted from its course to join in the search.
Two thousand miles away at Pearl Harbor, the
battleship USS Colorado, with three catapult planes,
was putting to sea to join the rescue efforts. Other
ships were steaming with the Colorado. The aircraft
carrier Lexington was en-route from San Diego. On
her flight and hangar decks were sixty-two planes. Six
destroyers were accompanying her.
At the Navy communications center in Hawaii,
three operators picked up a message twenty-four hours
after the plane was thought to have gone down: "Can't
last much longer. Plane is sinking." All along the
Pacific coast of the United States, amateur radio
operators heard erratic signals supposedly from the
plane. All of these proved to be the results of cruel
Dozens of vessels were converging on the search
area. So was a violent equatorial weather disturbance.
Search planes from Hawaii were forced to turn back.
Severe icing caused carrier-based planes to return to
their ships.'Squalls brought zero visibility. The smaller
ships had to abandon the search temporarily in order to
ride out the storm.
With the passing of the storm, the all-out search
was once again underway. The Navy minesweeper
Swan sighted green flare-like lights but attributed them
to meteorites after finding no source for them.
Lookouts on Howland thought they saw flares to the
northeast. When at least twenty-five men aboard the
Itasca sighted what looked like green lights, the cutter
steamed towards the spot. Upon reaching the location,
they found nothing.
After sixteen days and 250,000 miles of looking,
the search for Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan was
called off. However, the memory of the first woman to
fly alone across the Atlantic would live on.Within
months rumors began to fly rumors that supposedly
"explained" the mysterious disappearance of the two
fliers. The most prevalent was that Earhart and
Noonan were prisoners at a secret Japanese base on a
Pacific island; that they had deliberately flown off
-course to spy on war preparations at Jap military
installations, and when their plane went down, the
Japs had captured them. Both the United States' and
the Japanese governments denied the rumors, and with
the United States' entry into World War II, the missing
aviators and rumors about them were all but forgotten
at least temporarily.
After American forces stormed ashore and captured
Okinawa, a body count of dead.Japs was taken.
During the check, a souvenir hunting GI discovered a
packet of photographs on one of the Japanese bodies.
Among the pictures was a snapshot of Amelia Earhart
and her plane. Then word came out that someone had
found a whole album of Earhart photographs on the
Once again rumors generated: Amelia Earhart and
Fred Noonan had been executed after having
accidentally discovered a Japanese military buildup that
was then in violation of existing treaties; the two fliers
were still alive and being held at a POW camp in Japan;
Miss Earhart and Noonan had died of disease while
being held in a Japanese army prison ... and so on.

in Japan when the Electra disappeared were
questioned. All denied any knowledge about the fate of
the fliers. However, the mystery was kept alive
because so many Japanese military documents had
been destroyed. Most of the persons who might have
had some knowledge of the record-seeking pilots had
died in the fighting. Still rumors persisted.
In fact, enough rumors lingered to inspire a CBS
news team to go to Saipan on an investigative
reporting assignment in 1960. Some of the natives
there told of having seen a white man and woman
taken prisoner after their plane had crashed in the
harbor. One woman, who was questioned, stated that
when she was eleven years old, she saw a white man
and the "American lady pilot." They were being led
away by soldiers. The woman was Japanese-born but
had lived in California for several years. One man said
that an officer had invited him to witness the hanging
of two Americans but he had declined the offer.
The reports accelerated the investigation. Dredging
operations were started where witnesses said they
thought the plane had sunk. Salvagers recovered
wreckage from an airplane that obviously had been
submerged since the Electra had vanished. Most of the
debris was too badly corroded to be identified.
However, salvagers found a Bcndix generator with a
readable serial number. The number was cabled to the
Bendix factory for matching against the Bcndix
numbers on the missing plane. A reply came back. The
electric generator was not from Miss Earhart's plane.
The serial numbers, they said, were different. Nor was
there any record of the original generator having been
In November, 1961, a Saipanese native led
authorities to a grave where supposedly a white man
and woman were buried after having been executed.
Two skeletons were recovered. The remains were
flown to California where the renowned anthropologist
Theodore McKown examined them. Again the
investigators ran into a dead end. The skeletons were
As the probe was about to end, word was released
that the photographs found on the Japanese soldiers
had actually come from Lae, New Guinea. They had
been taken while Noonan and Miss Earhart were

AMELIA EARHART, FROM page 16
waiting for a change in weather before taking off for
Howland. The Japs who had the pictures were
stationed in New Guinea earlier in the war. They had
apparently obtained the photographs at that time.
In Columbus, Ohio, a group of amateur detectives
was convinced that Miss Earhart and Noonan did die
while in custody of Japanese authorities. One of the
group, Donald Kothers of Newberry, Ohio, first
became interested in 1946, while stationed with the
American forces on Saipan. He found the wreckage of
an American plane deep in the island's jungle. He gave
it little thought at the time. However, years later, he
saw photographs of the Earhart plane for the first time
and was struck by the similarity of the two aircraft. In
1967, Kothers and two others flew to Saipan. And
again in 1968, he returned to the island. The wreckage
was not the Earhart plane. It was a 1936 vintage U.S.
Nevertheless, Kothers and his companions did
uncover other information that could lead to the
Solution of the air mystery. Several islanders told them
that they remembered a thin white woman with short
hair and a white man with a long nose. The Japanese
were holding them under guard. The woman, the
natives said, looked sad, seemed hurt and was sick
with dysentery. Those natives stated that authorities or
officials had never questioned them.
One Saipanese, Antonio Diaz, told Kothers that he
was assigned to a detail that hacked a trail out of the
jungle over which the Japanese pulled a wrecked
airplane that they later shipped to J'pan. Another,
Anna McGoofma, said that when she was seven and
returning from school one day, she came across some
Japanese soldiers forcing a white man to dig a grave.
A white woman was sitting nearby. Anna, who
watched from behind some brush, said that the
soldiers beheaded the white man. She fled before
seeing the white woman's fate.
Ms. McGoofma led the Ohioans to the exact spot
that she had described. The investigators excavated and
recovered pieces of bone fragments along with some
Dr. Raymond Baby, a professor of archeology at
Ohio State University, examined the eighty-nine bone
fragments. The results indicated that the exhumed
bones were those of a white male and a cremated
female, "probably white," and just beginning to age.
The dental bridge dated to the 1930s, and the Japanese
were known to cremate the bodies of the ill.
The grave showed signs of prior excavation.
Additional research disclosed that two Marines under
orders from a Captain Tracy Griswold had dug up the
grave. During taped interviews, the Marines mentioned
picking up a rib cage and part of an arm. The marines
asked Griswold why they were robbing the grave. The
captain, they told Kothers, asked them if they'd ever
heard of Amelia Earhart. When they replied in the
affirmative, he told them to say nothing about what
they were doing.
The Ohioans then located and interviewed the
captain who had been in charge of the detail. He told
them that on the record, he didn't remember a thing.
Off the record, they were on the right track.
Washington bureaucracy and red tape have blocked
efforts by Kothers and his group to find the remains
that the Marines exhumed and the missing fliers' dental
records. The government officials, probably living in
fear of losing their jobs, each tell the same story: "All
records are unclassified and in the National Archives."
There is little doubt that the Ohioans were on to
something. What was a 1936 Navy planedoing in the
middle of the jungles of Saipan? If they did actually
discover the fliers' graves, why do the reports
concerning and originating from the Itasca tend to
shatter any theory pertaining to Miss Earhart and
Noonan having been on Saipan? Someone is right, and
someone is wrong.
For the Earhart-Noonan Lockheed Electra to have
gone down on either Saipan or Okinawa, it would have
had to be thousands of miles off course. And the last
radio messages received by the Itasca, as estimated by
their strength, had to originate from less than a few
hundred miles out. The official consensus is that the
plane ran out of fuel while trying to find either the
Itasca or Howland Island and the fliers ditched at sea.
The ensuing storm was of ample violence to
overwhelm either a floating plane or a rubber raft. For
now, that is the most logical conjecture concerning the
fate of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan on their flight
back into yesterday.
There is still the other unsolved aspect to the
mystery. Where did the wreckage of the supposedly
American plane that was dredged up from Saipan
Harbor come from? It was of pre-World War II
vintage, and the generator did not have military
designations on it as would have been the case if it
were from a war plane. And what about the islanders'
eyewitness accounts of two Americans led away by
soldiers? Could another man-and-woman flying team,
unbeknown to the rest of the world, have crash-landed
at Saipan in the 1930s? If so, where did they come
from, and who were they?
Down through the years there has been much
controversial speculation as to the fate of the twin
engine airplane and its crew that climbed skyward over
Miami over a half century ago on a flight destined for
The Marine airfield, later named after the missing
aviatrix, is no more. It became the Miami Springs golf
course. A commemorative plaque and monument
honoring the world's greatest aviatrix (it also marked
the spot from where the plane took off) lay hidden
under a canopy of weeds for years. In 1970, a work
crew clearing the weeds discovered the marker was
missing. In June, 1989, a new plaque was mounted on
the wall of a warehouse that is now on the site.
If Amelia Earhart had successfully completed her
flight around the world in 1937, would Americans
remember her name as well as they do today? After all,
how many persons can name the first aviator (male or
female) to fly around the world?

Revised DNR rule would allow
renourishment during nesting season
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
Revisions made in a proposed Department of
Natural Resources (DNR) rule regarding beach
renourishment projects would make it easier to conduct
those projects during turtle nesting season.
The new rule would still disallow all coastal
construction during the turtle nesting season, which
runs from May 15 to October 15.
However, beach renourishment projects may be
permissible during that time if certain requirements are
met. These conditions include those projects that are
consistent with the federal Endangered Species Act of
1973 and those cities which have turtle nest relocation
programs within their borders.
One particular project which is expected to test the
proposed rule is the city of Delray's plan to renourish
its public beach this spring, during turtle nesting

Artificial reef theories tested off Palm Beach
By ROSEMARY SULLIVANT
Special to the Waterfront News
Some artificial reefs are like towns where everyone
is a transplant from somewhere else. But a well-
designed artificial reef could be placed where many
residents are home-grown natives. "Artificial reefs can
be a type of mariculture," says Professor alina Szmant,
a marine biologist at the University of Miami
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
Szmant has just begun a two-year study of the
relationship between nutrients and the development of
new plant and animal life on artificial reefs. The goal of
the project, funded by Florida Sea Grant, is to find out
more about how artificial reefs attract fish and how
they can be used to develop new populations of sea
"People have been using artificial reefs for a long
time to attract fishes," says Szmant, "but little
systematic work has been done to find out just how the
reefs work." For her study, Szmant designed artificial
reefs, made of concrete, with specific design features.
"They look a little like miniature Aztec temples. Each
structure is eight feet wide at the base and six feet tall.
The sides are sloped so that all the surfaces get light in
order to encourage algae to grow. They have holes to
allow fish to come in and out. Waste from the fish
becomes fertilizer for algae growing on surfaces."
A dozen of the pyramid-shaped artificial reefs were
built by Palm Beach County and put into the water last
August Three of the structures are empty inside; nine
are filled with cement rubble to simulate a coral reef.
"Coral reefs look solid," says Szmant, "but actually
fifty percent of a coral reef is void space. These holes
and cavities entrap organic particles and their
decomposition releases nutrients for algae."
Of the nine rubble-filled reefs, three contain rubble
enriched with a special fertilizer encased in thousands
of knee-high stockings. Three other reefs contain
rubble without any additions. The final three pyramids
are painted with anti-fouling paint.
The different configurations allow Szmant to test
several theories about artificial reefs. "One hypothesis
is that the organisms that grow on a reef can be an
important source of food for fish," she says. "If the
food-generating property is eliminated as is the case
on the reefs covered with anti-fouling paint the kind
of fish who are attracted to the reef should also
change." Szmant compares the reef to a resort where
you can get meals in addition to just a bed. "A habitat
with no food supply means fish have to leave to
forage. With a food supply, a reef may have greater
diversity and different compliment of species."
Szmant and her students are visiting the reefs on a
regular basis, monitoring changes, and conducting fish
surveys. So far they've found that the reef has attracted
a community of more than 1,500 fishes of 34 different

20 Waterfront News January 1992 Nautical Dining
Scenery, food, a delight at historic restaurant
The Riverview Restaurant
1741 Riverview Road,
Deerfield Beach, 428-DINE
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News reviewer
If you're cruising around Hillsboro Inlet looking
for a place to lunch, the Riverview Restaurant has the
makings of a promising waypoint.
About 140 feet of floating dock can accommodate
most vessels. Outdoor tables overlook a view of
Deerfield Island Park.
The 43-year old establishment, a rarity in newborn
south Florida, displays its history proudly. In the '20s
and '30s, the cracker-style structure, built from Dade
County pine, was a fish and vegetable packing house.
It was a casino until the Stewart family, who are still
the proprietors, took it over in 1948.
Although the restaurant offers a full dinner menu,
we decided to try the place for lunch.
An appetizer of roasted garlic clusters ($2.50)
surrounded by toast points was delicious. The garlic
- which tasted surprisingly mild was softened by
the roasting process and came dripping tiny beads of
Another appetizer recommended by our attentive
waiter was the jalapeno peppers, ($4.95) topped with
goat cheese sauce and stuffed with cream cheese.
There's several luncheon entrees to choose from.
For example: a "cheese Board," a three-cheese combo
served with fresh fruit ($7.95); or an openfaced
sandwich of smoked turkey and gorganzola between
slices of home baked French bread ($6.95); or a roast
beef and brie melt ($7.50) served with horseradish
butter; or a smoked sliced duck breast ($9.95) with
raspberry sauce, wild rice and poached fruit. Specials
of the day vary.

Caesar salads priced from $4.95 to $8.95 can be":
served wih plain chicken, cajun chicken, or shrimp.
We ordered the homemade Riverview Roulette
Wheel Pizza ($7.95 or market price). This unusual
pizza for one boasted a pastry crust, seafood topping
and mozzarella cheese.
The Mushroom Cognac Burger ($7.95) proved to
be an elegant makeover of an old standby. Sauteed
with cognac and draped with mushrooms, the thick
burger rested between slices of homemade sourdough
bread. A homemade potato salad with-just the right
hint of mayonnaise was an appropriate side dish.
For dessert, there was warm apple pie and a scoop
of cinnamon ice cream ($3.95).

University's SCUBA diving degree
program only one in U.S.
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
It's a complex business: selling safety as a life and
death matter to rank beginners as well as experienced
A diver's survival depends on acquired underwater
skills along with an oxygen supply and the hardware
that goes with it, and Miami's Barry University offers
the country's only four-year undergraduate program
leading to a degree.
Recreational Dive Management (RDM) is the
brainchild of Thomas H. Ingram who created the
program and brought it to Barry four years ago when
he moved from the Jensen Beach campus of Florida
Institute of Technologoy and established the new
Instead of lear-while-you-earn, this is an
organized program to teach all aspects of diving and
dive management, along with a university minor in
business the student is graduated competent in all
The first six graduates of the initial class are in the
field, and one has elected to return for an MBA in
management, satisfaction for Ingram, academic and
S The program has grown to 40 students a figure
Ingram expects to increase to 50, and the faculty has
grown as Gale Marie Simmons joined the staff. She
holds a BS from University of San Francisco, MS
from San Francisco State University, and is a PADI
Ingram earned his undergraduate degree in
geology from the University of Florida, an MA in
anthropology from Florida Atlantic University, and an
MBA fromBarry as he pursues his doctorate. He, too,
is a qualified instructor.
"This is not a soft degree program," Ingram said.
"Entering undergraduates are certified divers, and we
still have a 20 percent attrition rate. People come in
thinking this is a dive program, then we start talking
about the physiology of mixed gases."
A few students have applied who want to learn to
dive,but candidates for a degree aren't accepted until
they hold a "C" card and rate as qualified divers.
"A lot of people are more interested in becoming
instructors than in retailing. I think that's a mistake.
There is more future career potential in retailing,"
A few students entering the program already have
two-year degrees in affiliated fields or some dive and
The advantage of the degree program is a planned,

sequential approach to the industry designed to
enhance and advance the student's progress.
Major Bob Williams, United States Air Force, is a.
master instructor and has taught both military dive
programs and recreational diving. He approves of the
program and has had a student graduate from Barry
University with a major in Recreational Dive
Two career tracks are offered. One prepares
students for careers in instruction and retailing. The
second offers professional growth for certified
SCUBA instructors actively teaching when admitted to
the program. These students must maintain active
teaching status as well as professional liability
In both cases requirements include study of human
anatomy, English composition and literature,
techniques of research, precalculus math for business,
elementary probability and statistics, speech, electives
in the social and behavioral sciences, electives in
theology and philosophy and electives in the arts and
The minor in business requires concepts of
business behavior, accounting, economics,
management and marketing, along with electives in
business law, ethical issues, organizational
communication and behavior, and retailing.
RDM courses also include introduction to
computers, seamanship (most divers operate from
small boats), exercise physiology, legal aspects of the
sport, retailing, and instructing.
Ingram and Williams agree the better career path is
through retailing. The dive shop produces better cash
flow and income. The retailer can first affiliate with
one or more dive boat operators, then acquire a boat
and qualified instructors.
Some ambitious students undertake a double major
combining business and diving, Ingram said. That
may result from serious older students entering the
program in their mid-twenties. They have had some
exposure to the business world and diving.
Ingram said as many as 1.5 percent of America's
250 million people are divers with a.market of three
or four million currently active and new divers entering
the field daily. The oldesrcurrently certified diver is
estimated to be in his mid-eighties.
Future growth of the industry appears assured
with diving tied to two growth industries tourism
and recreation. Barry students intern at resort areas
during their studies to get a feel for the marketplace.
