Fort Lauderdale's Riverwalk
strives for 'nautical motif'
By JEFFREY G. HARRELL
Waterfront News writer
Miami has one. So does Jacksonville. And San
Antonio. And Baltimore.
Ft. Lauderdale's is just going to be different.
"We're unique," says Bill Johnson, chief
developer for the city of Ft. Lauderdale's Riverwalk
"We visited all the cities, and by looking at the
competition we could get a feeling of what's good and
what's not good. With the environment we had, we
found we could easily create an atmosphere unlike
anything the others were creating. Our river is so
Aesthetically, downtown Fort Lauderdale's New
River is a lot easier on the eyes than the largely
industrial Miami River. The atmosphere of a waterway
winding through palm tree-laced neighborhood banks
proves more homey and quaint than the mile-wide St.
John's River in Jacksonville. Baltimore's waterfront
community, like Miami's, bustles with shipping and
industry while in San Antonio, Texas, there is little
more than a canal.
"San Antonio has a real narrow sidewalk which
creates a lot of problems with too many people,"
Johnson says. "Jacksonville is large and Miami is
large, so you don't get a feeling of intimacy.
Jacksonville has a wooden boardwalk and we knew
we didn't want to do that."
A "nautical motif" is Fort Lauderdale's plan.
"Most communities forego boating," Johnson
says. "But people like to see boats, private boats, and
there are an abundance of private boaters on New
River. It's fascinating to see and talk with somebody
who has sailed from Australia."
Johnson says the city decided to "put a lot of cash"
into the upgrading of the area's marine facilities and
into a linear marina, all the while "walking a line"
between land development and marine development.
"You can't please everyone," he says, "but we're
trying to keep as many people as happy as possible."
Jazz brunches have kept estimated crowds of
3,000 happy since the monthly jazz concerts began
July 14 of last year on the New River's north bank.
The jazz brunch series, a series patterned after "Jazz-
Aspen" in Aspen, Colorado, offers free music with
restaurants selling food and drinks during the daytime
and jazz at night at the Performing Arts Center where
tickets are sold at the door. The jazz bnmch series is co-
produced by the City of Fort Lauderdale and the
Performing Arts Center, and sponsored through a
recently signed agreement with Sun Bank.
"We've tried to create an activity to bring people
down to Riverwalk," says Ken Cicora, special events
coordinator for the City of Fort Lauderdale.
Cicora also says the jazz brunch series featuring
such local talent as Bob Vandivort & Just Jazz, Othello
Moleneaux and Sabrena Rich, Groove and Invitation
Jazz on Feb. 2 is an addition to the already
established Fort Lauderdale Seafood Festival and the
Las Olas Art Show. The Seafood Festival runs along
New River and Bubier Park, while the Las Olas Art
Show runs along Las Olas Boulevard. A stage has
been built on the New River waterfront at Southeast
First Avenue and Brickell Avenue for the jazz series.
And a new performing stage is only the beginning
of development around Brickell Avenue.
"Right now," says Cicora, "Riverwalk ends at the
Stranahan House. When it's built, we hope to wrap
Riverwalk around the Stranahan House and tie it into
"The major development to start is around Brickell
Avenue. There are private developers working on the
Brickell Avenue development right now, but Brickell
is the catalyst. Because of the tough economic times,
there are a lot of people holding back right now to see
what happens. When Brickell starts, we'll probably
see more people willing to get into the act.
Entertainment is important right now to get people
Johnson estimates the Brickell Avenue project will
cost private developers "in the area of $30 million." A
linear park scheduled to be built in front of Brickell
will cost an additional $1 million. The Riverwalk
project, according to Johnson, is costing an estimated
$100 million in public development costs while the
cost of the linear park improvement project is coming
in at an estimated $10 million.
Also, Johnson says, in an answer to the area's
complaints about a lack of adequate parking facilities
during special events, the county is planning to build a
new 1,200-unit parking garage behind the Government
Center for city and county employees. The garage will
open up parking spaces along Riverwalk during the
daytime. The new garage will open to the public
during nighttime events.
"We wanted to upgrade all marine facilities, the
parks, and give the public as much access as possible,"
Johnson says. "There's a small town atmosphere
downtown. There's a sense of intimacy along our
waterfront that you don't find in downtown Miami or
anywhere else, really.
"We're looking at a success story, even in the
midst of hard times."
Waterfront theater on
brink of bankruptcy
FORT LAUDERDALE Unless the Broward
Center for the Performing Arts Center (PAC) receives
some large donations, the waterfront concert hall will
go bankrupt on Sept. 30, according to Broward
County Finance officials.
The center's long-term debt went over $10 million
in January after the PAC Authority, the center's board
of directors, approved a letter of credit agreement from
a group of local banks that raises the theater's
construction debt obligations to $10.1 million. Last
October, the center's debts were posted at $9.5
The $10.1 covers repayment of industrial revenue
bonds, plus interest over the next 19 months.
A management consultant to the authority, Steven
Wolff, has told the PAC governing board that it should
be converting itself from construction overseers to
theater operators and fund-raisers. A more
comprehensive final report on the PAC was due from
Wolff in late January.
Preliminary comments from the Florida
Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on Broward
County's Manatee Plan were received by county
officials in January.
"The speed restrictions recommended by the Task
Force will go far to promote manatee protection in
many areas," wrote DNR's Director of the Division of
Marine Resources Pamela McVety. "We are
recommending some additional protection measures,
and refinements to recommended regulatory
approaches, to ensure year-round protection for the
manatees that reside in Broward County and to
promote adequate protection in essential wintering
McVety's four pages of suggestions include: Slow
Speed shore-to-shore seasonally within all areas of the
ICW not otherwise regulated for the duration of the
weekend and holiday period; a 50-foot Slow Speed
buffer zone or Slow Speed designation for all waters
outside the ICW channel year-round; many backwater
areas, finger canals and major canals should be

McVety promised more detailed comments after
DNR receives the county's final plan in June.
Proposed new rules would force boatyard and
marina owners in Broward County to build catch
basins and recycling systems to trap polluted water
runoff from pressure clean boat hulls and spray-
painting. Sewage from live-aboards would have
to pumped to onshore treatment stations.
The county's Office of Natural Resource
Protection tested th New River near boatyards and
found high concentrations of metals toxic to fish and
other aquatic life, said Steve Somerville, that agency's
Some boatyard owners have urged environmental
officials to go after paint manufacturers who put
copper and other toxins in hull paints to fight barnacle
Over $400,000 remains unclaimed from funds
awarded this year to Broward County from the state's
boating improvement fund (FBIP). The City of
Hollywood wants $50,000 to build small boat ramps at
Rotary Park on the C-10 Canal. Wilton Manors has
dibs in for another $50,000 to dredge under seven
bridges over the South Fork Middle River. Fort
Lauderdale wants to cap the seawall at its 15th Street
Boat Ramps for $50,000, too. The county's artificial
reef program needs $75,000 this year leaving
$400,000 in the fund. The Marine Advisory
Committee (MAC) from the county will review these
funding requests at its Feb. 6 meeting, hear reports
from the cities in March and award the funds in April,
predicted John Fiori, the Broward County Parks staff
member who serves as the liaison between the MAC
and the county government.

Derelict vessel, a neighborhood tragedy
To the Editor:
It was interesting that you chose a photograph of
the sunken boat behind 2606 Okeechobee Lane, to
accompany your recent article on removal of derelict
vessels. For more than five months, neighboring
homeowners have been seeking assistance from the
Broward County Zoning Department, the Broward
Sheriffs Office, the Office of Natural Resource
Protection, the Florida Marine Patrol, Florida
Department of Natural Resources, and the Corps of
Engineers in an effort to have that specific boat
On January 8, we received the final reply from the
Florida Marine Patrol: They expressly denied both
responsibility and jurisdiction in the case, and said that
Sit was the responsibility of the Broward County Zoning
Department (who, incidentally, referred us to the
Marine Patrol in the first place).
The property owner/boat owner has absconded,
and there appears to be little likelihood that he will be
located, and no likelihood that he would remove the
vessel if he were. In the meantime, the vessel has
become a popular play spot for children who approach
it both by land and by boat. The boat clearly meets the
definition of "attractive nuisance," and is
conspicuously hazardous. By allowing it to remain, the
county can well expect to be faced with a tremendous
civil action if a child is killed or injured while playing
on the hulk. We all hope that it doesn't take such a
tragedy to cause the county to act.
Banning live-aboards is insane
To the Editor:
Sitting here on my boat, Tuggit which I
resurrected from the boat wreckers saws to create a
wonderful home for myself for the past three years, I
was pondering the possible ramifications of Florida's
proposed rules concerning liveaboards, when I
Live-aboards are being
used as scapegoats
To the Editor:
I am outraged by the notion of requiring
liveaboards to register. Will this narrow-minded
thinking against a single group ever end? To desire an
end to this madness is to desire a return to the
principles set forth by our American founding fathers
who, as we know, were much more cognizant of the
diversity our United States represents than many of us
will ever be. Liveaboards represent part of this
Those who chose to lay their head in a domicile
placed on terra firma seem to care not to understand
those who chose to make their home in a gently
rocking boat. But in many ways lubbers and boat
lovers are not that different. They all wake up in the
morning, some woi'ksomie don't, some are retired on
fixed incomes, some are ex-professionals living a
dream, some are tradespeople saving for a dream.
They raise their children and send them to college, they
are domestic engineers and just about any other
combination you can think of.
There are some differences however. Boatlovers,
by virtue of their surroundings, need to be capable and
ingenious people, their well-being depends on it.
There are few people who are more in tune with the
environment and the daily and hourly changes nature
provides. Sometimes a beautiful sunset or sunrise,
sometimes a bitter storm; sometimes a manatee gliding
by with her calf, or trying to untangle a seabird from a
fishing line. Few people are aware of the devastation
man can bring to nature because liveaboards experience
it every day.
But the liveaboard for the most part would rather
live with these challenges than, say, those of creating a
more impressive skyline or which cable television
company to use.
We could all learn a lot from living aboard for
awhile. We might even learn to find peace within
ourselves as many liveaboards do rather than trying to
No, I don't think liveaboards should register.
Next, some genius will want to register the Jews.
suddenly realized that not only would the "boat people"
be prohibited from living on our boats but the crews
and owners of megayachts in their exclusive marinas,
crews of ocean-going ships when they arrive in ports
and no one would be permitted to anchor out en-route
to their final destinations in the boating exodus that
occurs every spring and fall.
From what I can see the reasoning that is being
presented for the ban on living aboard a boat is water
quality and lack of sewage and dockage -anchorage
facilities. In Maryland the state began a program that
gave monetary grants to any marina or municipality
that wished to install pump-out facilities and now in
the waters of the Chesapeake Bay the water quality has
been improved to the point that millions of fish
including hardheads croakerss) and striped bass are
flourishing and anchorages are enjoyed by thousands
of boaters all throughout the summer. Marina slips are
being created every day.
1 would be more inclined to believe that the
opponents of liveaboards are the tax collectors and
property owners who are falsely assuming the
property values will fall if someone anchors in sight of
Boaters buy fuel, clothes, food, equipment and all
sorts of products, just like the people who live in the
bayfront apartment. So what if we don't pay property
taxes... ask a marina operator how much taxes he pays
a year and you would be astounded.
I see millions of homeless people in this country
that will be joined by liveaboards like myself if we are
not allowed to live on our boats and enjoy life. Refuse
me anchorage or dockage where I can live aboard and I
will find somewhere in this world where sane,
competent people exist to enjoy life.
F.V. Tuggit 1936-1991
Legal dock rentals favored
To the Editor:
I have long ignored the protests from Calvin
Landau of Hendricks Jsle with respect to dock rentals,
but I can no longer contain myself since reading his
letter which appeared in last month's issue.
Mr. Landau is very well aware that none of the
horror stories he outlined in his letter will come to
pass. Dock use is not something which will materialize
in thd future based on a decision by the Fort
Lauderdale City Commission to decriminalize it it has
been going on in the city for over 20 years.
When Cal bought his property in 1985, it was
probably right around the time that the city commission
created a special zoning district to legitimize dock rental
activity on Isle of Vence and Hendricks Isle! Were it
not for the fact that the newly formed Waterfront
Property Owners' Association attended the
commission meeting, and spoke up in favor of the
city's doing so, the chances are good that those people
would still be outlaws.
What swayed the commissioners was that citizens
from other parts of the city were in favor of allowing
these isles to continue as liveaboard areas. The
overriding factor was not that we or anyone else was
in favor of liveaboards there, but that this activity had
advanced to the point that the mortgages on those
buildings would be in jeopardy should the city
suddenly crack down on the illegal dock rental
What Mr. Landau fails to realize is that almost all
the animosity our association encountered in our effort
for responsible dock use was due to the bad reputation

You will have to register your boat in Florida if

I don't know if the boat was bought new or used,
whether you got a manual or not; so, I'll just give you
my idea of what to do. I would change the oil and
filter. I would also clean my flame arrester. I would
change and clean my gas filters, too. My electrical
system would be checked out for tightness, my battery
would be looked at for age or water and the cable's
condition would be examined. Next, I would check
my points, plugs, condenser and carburetor. Finally, I
would adjust and tune the engine.

not, do it to preserve and protect your investment in

I run swell for an hour or more; then I slowly slow
up and stop as if I have run out of fuel. My tank is full,
my filter is new, but after a minute or so my boat will
start again and I will run again for an hour or so. I
think I checked everything, but still the same problem.
There is a filter in some carburetors in the inlet
socket that clogs up. Some are brass, some are paper
and they have to be replaced periodically. Also, a
plugged or kinked gas line will cause your type of
problem. I would blow all gas lines for blockage and
check that carburetor filter. One other thing, back
issues of the Waterfront News are available at the
paper's offices in Fort Lauderdale.
I have a 21-foot boat with a Mercury inboard-
outboard in it. I left this boat in the water outdrive up
for about six months while I was up north. Now, I
can't shift this outdrive and put it in reverse; also, the
throttle won't advance to speed up the engine. There's
battery trouble, too.
What a mess! What to do and where did I go
When you left your boat in the water without
making provisions for corrosion, rain, bottom fouling
and gas in the carburetor and low in the tank is when
you went wrong!
The battery should have had a trickle charger and
been checked for water. All cables and controls:must
be lubed. The engine should be pickled or oiled and
covered against dampness. I would also check the
hand controls for grease and rust or water in the shift
Change your filters gas and oil for water or
condensation and drain any water out of the fuel tank.

It seems almost like a mini-civil war pitting
neighborhood against neighborhood and neighbor
against neighbor. There has even been the deterioration
of some longtime friendships. The reason is the
various interpretations of Fort Lauderdale's twenty-
year-old dock usage ordinance for single family
During the past year and a half, contradictions and
diverse paraphrases have flown from all directions
during the various public hearings on the matter.
Scheduled two hour open meetings have run twice that
long. Perplexed city commissioners, pondering on re-
election, have been fence sitting on the issue. Their
bewilderment is undoubtedly partially derived from the
city's bureaucrats being unable to come forward with
an exact clarification of the ordinance. At the most
recent open conference, only former mayor Bob Cox
was able to present the closest explanation to the
reasoning for the original ordinance when the Marine
Advisory Board (MAB), presented it to the
commission (at the commission's request) in 1972. I
was a member of that Marine Advisory Board.
For several years, during the late 1960s and early
1970s a local dentist, named Johnston or Johnson,
was conducting his practice aboard a spud barge type
houseboat (a vessel able to lift itself partially out of the
water on its own pilings) up the North Fork of the
New River. There was also a beauty or barber shop (I
forget which) operating aboard another houseboat near
downtown. The city fathers, at the time, had no legal
ability to stop those floating business operations, so
they asked the MAB to formulate a way to eliminate
businesses aboard vessels moored at residential docks
within Fort Lauderdale.

"One Stop Shopping"
The ordinance presented to the commission in
1972, and the way it was constructed by them, was
meant to prevent business activities from being
conducted aboard vessels moored at residential
docks.., not businesses conducted on the dock itself
or on the adjacent property. It had absolutely nothing
to do with that. The conducting of a business on the
dock or property itself was already covered by another
pre-existing ordinance that purposely disregarded such
items as conducting real estate transactions by phone
in the house, renting one's garage out for storage,
authors writing books at home, baking cookies and
cakes to be sold at church socials, and artists painting
landscapes and other pictures at home to be marketed
later, among other things. Also on the list was the
renting of residential docks to vessels with non-
liveaboards. We felt that for one to be fined for renting
out his dock could mean that if a neighbor complained,
a child selling lemonade from an orange crate stand on
his front lawn could also be fined.
To aim the non-commercial use law only at dock
renters would be, we decided, discriminatory.
More dock rental hearings planned
By M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writer
FT. LAUDERDALE A proposal to "delete the
restriction that docks and landing wharves can only be
used by the occupants of the premises" from city codes
will be the subject of a public hearing to be held on
Feb. 4 at 5:01 p.m. in the City Commission Room at
City Hall, 100 N. Andrews Avenue.
Earlier hearings were held on dock usage policy
changes in December and January. The proposed
ordinance amendments passed the City Commission
four to one on first reading Jan. 22. A second and final
reading of the proposed dock law changes will take
place after the Feb. 4 hearing.
Currently, city ordinances outlaw the rental of
dockage in single-family (R-l and R-1A) waterfront
neighborhoods. The consensus of the City
Commission after hearing the public's opinion about
dock usage in December was to instruct the City
Attorney to clarify and redefine who the "occupants" of
a waterfront property are and what "uses" of the

"It was noted at that meeting that the permitted uses
should allow for use by anyone designated by the
occupants," said City Manager George Hanbury.
"The City Attorney's Office was directed to revise
the city code to: 1) remove the restrictions on the use of
residential docks solely by occupants of the premises;
and, 2) to allow use by anyone receiving permission
from the occupant provided the use is not commercial,"
wrote City Planning and Zoning Director Harry Diehl
in a memo to the City Manager. "The City and County
Land Use plans clearly prohibit commercial uses in

A new trade show targeted to boatbuilders will

Convention Center in Port Everglades.
The 16,000-square-foot International
Boatbuilder's Exhibit and Conference (IBEX) will

repair in all contemporary materials, said show
organizer Jonathan Wilson, founder of WoodenBoat
and Professinal Boatbuilder magazines in Brooklin,
Maine. About 150 exhibits will be viewed.
Carl Cramer, publisher of Professional
Boatbuilder, said the show is meant to give boat
makers the opportunity to debate issues and study
trends all in one setting. The magazine's editorial staff
chose issues they found to be timely.
Show organizers picked a Fort Lauderdale location
because of the amount of boat manufacturers based in

State agency controverts p
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
After years of bickering and court battles over the
proposed relocation of Boynton's Intracoastal bridge,
:the town of Ocean Ridge and the city of Boynton
Beach finally agreed last year to having the bridge
constructed at the extension of Boynton Beach
However, a state agency has all but killed the idea
after having made an on-site inspection of the proposed
location and the present location of the bridge on Ocean
The Department of Environmental Resources
(DER), in a letter to the Florida Department of
Transportation (DOT), has recommended that a
replacement bridge be constructed at the present
location, rather than moving it to the proposed site.
Larry O'Donnell, environmental manager for DER,
stated that based on environmental concerns with sea
grasses and mangroves which are in abundance at the
northern (proposed) alignment, the bridge should not
O'Donnell declared, "We have had a number of
concerns for years, but I don't think the city of
Boynton or the town of Ocean Ridge ever consulted
The Florida Department of Transportation, which
has intended to have the bridge constructed at the
northern alignment, would face stiff opposition from
DER and other permitting agencies should it decide to
place the bridge there.
Wendy Cyriacks, district environmental manager
for FDOT District IV, stated, "DER's opinion will be
considered in the selection of an alternative, because
the next phase we will have to go through is the
permitting process,,and if DER is opposed to the
northern alignment, it will present difficulties for us in
getting that permit"
Cyriacks continued that at this time, the department
is preparing its own environmental assessment report
of the two areas, and that no options have been
eliminated to date. DOT is also preparing conceptual
mitigation plans for the northern alignment should that
site be recommended. Cyriacks added that socio-
economic impacts are being studied for the proposals at
ah of the two sites ..
S"Therre three alternatives for each alignment site
- a low level bascule bridge, a mid-level bascule
bridge, and high level bridge," Cyriacks stated.
"Depending on which of those is selected, you have
different socio-economic impacts."
ilans to move Boynton bridge
Should a replacement span be built at the Ocean
Avenue site, the higher the span, the greater the need
for more complex access roads to the restaurants and
condominiums located on the west side of the bridge.
There are also residences which must be considered on
the east side of the Intracoastal.
The Coast Guard requires that Intracoastal bridges
have a 21-foot high clearance from the mean high-
water mark. The present bridge at Ocean Avenue,
which is over 50 years old, only has a 10-foot
clearance, so a higher replacement span is definitely
John Micelli, town manager of Ocean Ridge,
stated, "We could probably live with the bridge being
placed at either location, 'as long as one is not more
expensive than the other, and they (DOT and DER),
can settle the environmental issues."
The city of Boynton Beach, which has been
pushing for the bridge to be constructed at the northern
alignment in order to spur downtown development, is
presently formulating its strategy after seeing DER's
Cyriacks related that DOT will hold a public
hearing in April in the Boynton area. Based on input
from that meeting and all other information, the
department will then make its final recommendations
regarding the bridge project.

Boater runs over diver off Lauderdale
By BRYAN BROOKS
Watefront News columnist
Paramedic David Lindsey was free-diving off Fort
Lauderdale when he was run over by an unknown boat
early January. The end result of the incident was that
in an attempt to escape the boat and dive head first to
safety, he lost both of his legs.
The chilling incident brings to center stage the
much discussed question of boater licensing and
education one more time. As more and more people
dive off shore, and more and more people get into
pleasure boats, this type of accident will continue to
happen. The question is: what can be done to try to
eliminate the tragedies?
Dive charter boat captain and SCUBA instructor
Walt DiMartini sees this type of incident happening
more and more. DiMartini stated that about three years
ago, he and Chris Murray, a SCUBA diver and Davie
police spokesman, tried to work with a member of the
state legislature to bring about some type of state law
standardizing the size of the dive flag, the amount of
inches it had to be out of the water, and how many feet
a passing boater would have to stay from that flag.
But as always, DiMartini states, the state
legislature failed to act upon it. He feels it has to do
with the powerful boating lobby in Florida. Boating is
a major factor in our tourist economy and any attempt
to legislate or regulate boating is met with stiff
resistance, relates DiMartini.
In fairness to boaters, DiMartini says, in many of
the cases, the diver is at fault. Either they don't display
a flag, or are diving too far from the flag when a boat
passes by. Sometimes the seas are so high the boater
can't see the flag, making the issue even more
Captain Michael Lamphear, of the Florida Marine
Patrol, advises that their investigation shows the seas
weren't high that day, but the diver may have been
about sixty feet from the flag. As of now, the boat that
ran over the diver hasn't been located, so a lot of
questions remain unanswered.
.Captain Lamphear supports legislation to make
some type of licensing or education mandatory for
boaters. The only options open for enforcement of
errant boaters now is when the officer sees the
violation, the Florida Marine Patrol can charge them
with careless or reckless operation of a boat.
In reckless operation of a boat, the officer would
have to show the boater acted in a willful and wanton
manner. That means, Captain Lamphear says, the
officer would have to almost show the boater was dive-
bombing the diver. It is extremely difficult to prove.
The bottom line is that as of now: THERE IS NO
MASTER SALVAGE DIVER
LAW SAYING HOW MANY FEET FROM THE
DIVE FLAG A BOAT MUST STAY. The law only
states that a diver must have a diver's down flag.
Mike Dickman, the Director of Association
Services from the Marine Industries Association of
South Florida, says the boating industry is against any
laws regulating the size of a dive flag, or how may feet
away from a dive flag the boater must remain.
Dickman goes on to say that he is a certified
advance diver himself and has even been run over by a
boater. But he feels, and the boating industry feels,
that education of both the diver AND the boater is the
answer, not licensing.
There are too many variables involved in licensing
a boater, Dickman says. Anybody could take some test
on boating that doesn't make them a boater.
Academic knowledge doesn't mean someone has the
practical knowledge to be in control of a boat. Boats
have no brakes, and boats steer differently there are
just too many variables, Dickman says. He feels it
would just be another bureaucracy.

Personal watercraft regs
proposed off Lauderdale
FORT LAUDERDALE The proposed
regulation of personal watercraft -jet skis, para sails,
windsurfing, etc. off the city's South Beach will be
considered by the City Commission on Feb. 4.
A subcommittee of the city Marine Advisory board
studied reported problems. There are complaints about:
"the operation of watercraft in the South Beach area in
the vicinity of swimmers and divers; the lack of
awareness of the operators of the watercraft with
regard to the rules of the road and the meaning of dive
flags; and, too many watercraft are being operated
within 100 yards of the South Beach area, a very
The recommendations of the subcommittee,
according to its chairman Hugh Chappell, include:
limiting offshore operation to at least 150 yards from
shore, with well-marked ingress and egress channels
to and from the beach; if the off-shore limit can not be
increased to 150 yards, a buoy layout directing the
path of jet ski activity in an east to west direction be
marked; limiting non-motorized craft, i.e.., canoes,
kayaks and Hobi cats; anchoring be eliminated within
150 yards; specific regulations and penalties enforced;
gasoline storage should be controlled in this area; and,
occupational licenses be endorsed by the hotel

Fishing February 1992 Waterfront News 19
Small boat fishing series
By M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writer
A group of weekend fishermen held a shakedown
tournament in January prior to a five-event series
beginning in March through November.
Thirty-six anglers aboard thirteen small boats
fished on inshore waters in a catch and release
tournament out of Haulover Marina in North Miami
Beach. The competitors caught snook, trout, snapper,
barracuda and jack, said series organizer Captain Ron
"The concept of the tournament is to expose the
'weekender fishing crowd' to the fact that even though
the weather may be inclement on the outside, either in
the Gulf or in the Atlantic Ocean, they can still enjoy
their sport productively by fishing the waters contained
in safe harbors, inlets, bays and estuaries, as well as
barrier island locations," observed Captain Mallet.
During the next nine months, Mallet and his
colleagues will be fishing in Naples, Key Largo,
Miami, Port Salerno and Captiva Island aboard vessels
of less than 26 feet in a series of "catch, photograph
and release" tournaments.
In the Shakedown Tournament held January 18,
Ray Wallace of Fort Lauderdale earned first place
honors. Second place went to fellow Fort Lauderdale
angler Greg Hamilton. Dennis Testa of Davie came in
third and fourth went to Miramar's Tom Calandra.
Called the Team Fish tournaments the first leg in
the series will be held in waters around Port of the
Islands near Naples, Florida, March 21 and 22. For
more information about the tournament series, call
Captain Mallet at 305-961-2304 or write: Team Fish

Study tagging juvenile sharks
The Shark Biology Department at Mote Marine
Laboratory of Sarasota is conducting a study of shark
nursery grounds in Charlotte Harbor and Tampa Bay.
As part of the project, juvenile sharks are being tagged
Mote scientists are using a new kind of shark tag,
a yellow and orange plastic streamer about two to four
inches long. The tag is placed under the shark's skin
below the dorsal fin. If anglers land a shark with a tag,
scientists ask that they cut off the orange end of the tag
or if the orange portion of the tag has already been
cut off, to get the number of the tag off the remaining
yellow portion and then leave the yellow tag in the
shark. Anglers are asked to send either the number, or
the cut portion of the tag, with their name, address and
phone number, date and location of capture, total
length of the shark (measured or estimated), and
whether the shark was released or kept.
Please send info to:
Mote Marine Laboratory
Shark Biology Program
1600 Thompson Parkway
Sarasota, FL 34236
Angler cooperation with Mote studies make it
possible for scientists to gather field data in an efficient
and cost-effective way. Mote scientists are working to
gather the best possible information about the
populations, growth and migration of sharks. That
information will be used to manage the resource
wisely. For additional information, call Mote Marine
Laboratory at 813-388-4441.

20 Waterfront News February 1992 Nautical Dining
No frills food fits the bill for budget meal
By JENNIFER HEIT
Watrfront News writer
In its recent history, the place now called Dockers
was a bar with limited food options. Then last March,
new owner John Skinner expanded the former Harbor
Lights into a combination waterfront restaurant/bar,
offering'a full menu and limited dockage for boaters.
Like its predecessor, the decor is sports bar
casual. Laminated tables overlook a window view of
docks provided by the adjacent Cozy Cove Marina.
The dining room is small, so the owners have
requested that customers refrain from smoking. Don't
worry about what you're wearing Dockers is
certainly low key enough for jeans or shorts.
The menu is wide and varied, with no real
specialties, except maybe the Tequila shrimp soup,
billed as the "chefs speciality." Portions appear
substantial. Dockers fits the bill if your appetite's
hearty, but your budget is on a diet.
For example, customers can order a pure beef
pizza burger with onions and fresh mushrooms and
fries. ($5.95). Grilled chicken breast sandwiches with
a choice of accompaniments range from $3.95 to about
$6. There's hot and cold sandwiches like roast garlic
pork on a toasted hoagie roll ($5.95), blackened
dolphin filet ($5.95) or a foot-long hot dog steamed in
Salads were of the typical luncheon variety with a
couple of specialities thrown in i:e. the New
Orleans chicken salad featuring blackened chicken
($5.75) and the chicken walnut salad platter ($5.95).

On a recent visit, we started our dinner with an
appetizer of baked clams, stuffed with tiny shrimp,
breading, onions and spices. About four baked clams
were served with a chunky red sauce.
What we really enjoyed was the bread, a warm

There's about 10 entrees suitable for dinner. The
chicken mushroom crepes ($6.25) contained bite-size
chunks of white meat chicken surrounded by two good-
sized crepes. This was topped by a sweet, tan-colored
apricot sauce and fresh mushrooms. The portion was
more than adequate, but in flavor the dish offered
nothing beyond the ordinary.
The platter of St. Louis ribs, ($9.95) however,
was a real find. A whole slab of spare ribs smeared
with a thick homemade barbecue sauce proved
All dinners come served with a nice tossed salad
and Spanish-style rice or potato.
As for service, the attention we received seemed
more obligatory than friendly, but at least we didn't

Boaters concerned over proposed live-aboard regulations
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfrnt News writer
Boaters are very concerned that the state will
proceed with plans to regulate liveaboards and their
anchoring on Florida's waterways.
At a tempestuous public hearing held in West Palm
Beach last December, the Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) announced its plans to develop a
rule regulating liveaboards.
Jim Marx, an environmental administrator with
DNR and one of the officials working on the rule,
stated, 'There are a number of existing regulations that
aren't enforced very well, but no regulations exist to
address one of the problems of anchoring, that is the
amount of time boats can anchor at particular
As an outcome of December's hearing, DNR will
be soliciting legal advice as to what extent federal laws
prevent the state from regulating anchoring. After
getting that question answered the department will then
encourage involved groups such as concerned boaters
to work together with DNR to develop sensible
strategies and options.
Marx said that the department is hoping to
assemble a legislative package for 1993 which would
clarify state statutes regarding what local governments
can and cannot do to regulate anchoring and
liveaboards in Florida's waters.
Valerie Jones, president of Concerned Boaters,
said that current regulations should take care of any
problems that exist with liveaboards and that there isn't
a need for new regulations.
"It's a travesty that residents and taxpayers of
Florida should have to pay for blatant empire building

attempts by DNR," stated Jones. "I feel the state's
long-range intent is to zone the entire water surface,
prohibit anchoring, aid require attaching to state-
John Sprague, vice-president of Palm Beach
County's Marine Industries Association, related that
water quality issues have been one of the reasons that
the liveaboard proposals have surfaced. He adds that
boats produce only a very small amount of the waste
that flows into Florida's waterways.
Sprague noted, "If you're looking at water quality,
you need to address that problem on a site specific
basis; there are some areas that have a problem which
does need to be dealt with."
Boaters' rights conference set for February
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
As boaters face increasing restrictions and new
regulations on waterways throughout Florida and
nationwide, Florida will be hosting the 1992 National
Water Rights Conference February 21-24 in Stuart.
Concerned Boaters, an organization representing
over 1,000 boaters nationwide, is sponsoring the
David Slade, general counsel for the Coastal States
Organization in Washington, D.C., will be the
conference's keynote speaker. Slade will discuss
public trust issues as they relate to restrictions affecting
Slade is part of several panels of speakers who will
be presenting on a number of different issues
throughout the conference, including liveaboards,
maritime law, rules affecting waterway usage,
anchoring, and proposed regulations. The discussions
will take place on Saturday, Feb. 22 and Sunday, Feb.

Valerie Jones, president of Concerned Boaters,
said that she expects at least 150 people to attend the
conference from all over the U.S. and Hawaii.
"It should be quite an interesting conference,"
stated Jones. "We are trying to appeal to a mix of
people, primarily boat owners, to make them aware of
Members of the various Marine Industries
Associations, legislators, and government agency
representives are also expected to attend the four-day
Jones went on to say that boaters have been looked
upon as second class citizens who have become easy
targets for regulation because they haven't been
organized. By sponsoring this conference, Concerned
Boaters wants to get the word out that it is incumbent
upon boaters to make their voices heard around the
state before governmental regulatory agencies further
restrict boaters' rights.

conference, contact Concerned Boaters at (407) 288-
