Commercial fishing vessel
operator's license planned
The U.S. Coast Guard is formulating plans to
license operators of commercial fishing vessels as
required by Congress under the Commercial Fishing
Industry Vessel Safety Act of 1988. The plan follows
a two-year review of fishing-vessel accident
information and industry recommendations on how to
improve its safety record.
Approved private-sector training facilities would
certify that operators completing a course comply with
federal professional competency standards, under the
plan. In addition, certification would be based on an
operator of a Coast Guard-approved training course
tailored to seamanship and navigational needs of
commercial fishermen. Licensing will be two-tiered:
below 100 tons, and from 100 to 200 gross tons.
Federal law requires licensed candidates be
qualified by age, character, habits of life, experience,
professional qualifications, and physical fitness, as
well as citizenship, recency of service, and English
Information is available through the
project/manager, Lt. Cmdr. Dave Paxton, c/o
Commandant (G-MVP-3) 2100 Second Street, SW,
Suite 1 210, Washington, D.C. 20593-0001.
Summer cruising beckons in Tampa
With the spring and summer cruising season at
hand for Floridians who can't abandon shore-side
duties during the season, Tampa beckons as an
attractive port. There are facilities for the come-by-boat
cruisers as well as the-rent-a-boat advocates, day-;
cruise contingent and cruise ship advocates.
The Visitor's Bureau reports canoeing, jet skiing,
fishing and exotic ports of call. Canoe rental firms
promise training tours, and exploration of the
Hillsborough River and North Tampa. Others offer
conventional rental fleets and a new guided water taxi
service. Fishing tackle and water skis are available for
There are charter boats for fishing and diving,
harbor tours, dining cruises, island parties, and a host
of Gulf Coast water attractions to be explored from the
area. Call 1-800-826-8358 for information on the
seagoing life in Tampa.
Waterfront residents who find their gardening
efforts stymied by salt spray have help available and
the benefits apply to those farmers who cultivate crops
aboard seagoing vessels. Professor C.R. Johnson and
Associate Professor R.J. Black provide the answers.
Johnson and Black have published a fact sheet of
salt tolerant plants for boaters and shoreline dwellers.
Plant damage, they point out, can result from the soil,
salt spray, heavy surf or even driving rains, but some
plants can endure the effects of salt.
The fact sheet lists trees, palms, shrubs, ground
covers and vines that fall in one of three categories: salt
tolerant, moderately salt tolerant, and slightly salt
tolerant. Starting with the fact sheet as a basis for
exploration, the local agricultural agent can fill in
details and answer questions about appropriate
selection, planting and care.

Boat trailering safety guide
Boating safety on the highway comes to mind each
time a disabled boat rests on its trailer by the side of
the road and sometimes with more tragic results, the
hulls come to rest far from its trailer.
It's not an isolated condition, and now Frank
Morello, Everglades Fishery Biologist for the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission provides a
checklist for the over-the-road boater.
Morello has boat-trailered over a lot of miles for
business.and personal boating during 17 years with the
G&FWFC. His advice is published under
Conservation Notes: Boating Tips For Highway
Safety, and although the publication now is in its
second year it is no less useful.
For a more complete report on trailering the
Commission, in cooperation with the Department of
Natural Resources, has published "Florida Boater's
Guide," a 74-page booklet that fits into a pocket. Free
copies are available through: Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, 620 South Meridian Street,
Tallahassee, FL 32399-1600.
State's budget slashed as boat theft
As the number of stolen boats is rising
throughout south Florida, the state's Marine Patrol has,
had its investigation division's budget slashed.
Emphasis has been shifted to fisheries and
conservation and away from boat theft investigation by
the patrol's top management.
Cameras may film speeding boaters
Boaters who speed on Fort Lauderdale's
waterways may soon be under the surveillance of
cameras. State Senator Ken Jenne is pushing a bill
through the legislature which would allow "delayed
law enforcement." Currently, violators must be
ticketed in person by a Marine Patrol officer.
Hank Jones contributed to several of the above reports.

Boat luxury tax repeal contains fine print, fuel tax
By MICHAEL SCIULLA
Special to the Waterfront News
The much ballyhooed move by the Bush
Administration to repeal a luxury tax on a small
number of new boats costing over $100,000 could
saddle hundreds of thousands of middle-income
boaters with a new tax of more than $100 million over
the next few years, charged Richard Schartz, president
of the 410,000-member Boat Owners Association of
the United States.
In a letter to all of the members of the House Ways
and Means Committee, which is holding hearings on
the Administration's budget proposals, Schwartz
pointed out that the fine print of the Bush tax plan
calls for a new tax on diesel fuel used by boaters as
much as 21 cents per gallon to offset the revenues
lost by a repeal of the boat luxury tax.
"We are strongly opposed to any new tax that
would unfairly shift the financial burden to middle-
class Ameriicans who use their boats primarily for
family recreation and fishing," said Schwartz.
Recreational boaters are already slated to pay over
$600 million in federal gas taxes and $500 million
more in "user fee" taxes over the next four years.
The boat luxury tax should be repealed it has
cost American workers thousands of jobs and the
revenues raised have been insignificant in comparison
to the hardship caused but Schwartz called on the
Congress to look elsewhere for the necessary budget
"Instead of singling out the American boating
consumer for yet another tax, the Congress should
look closely at levying a few pennies per gallon tax on
diesel or bunker fuel used by foreign flag commercial
vessels or cruise ships which use U.S. ports for
gambling junkets to nowhere and who currently pay
no fuel tax at all," said Schwartz.
From now until the end of April, you can get the Yamaha V-6 or V-4 outboard you've always wanted. With a deal you never
thought possible. Your participating Yamaha dealer will remove your old engine and install the Yamaha outboard of your choice, with
NO INSTALLATION COSTS. You still cut your best trade-in deal with your dealer, but you get free installation with all these extras too.

Equipment like a multi-function speedometer, a multi-function tachometer, a stainless steel propeller, your choice of remote control
and installation hardware.
In addition, as part of this special offer, you'll also get a water separating fuel filter, fuel line barbs, a main wiring harness, remote
control cables, switch panel assembly and more.
It's everything you need to get reed up for the greatest fishing season ever. Stop by your participating Yamaha dealer today and

Official claims, derelict vessel program is not toothless
To the Editor:
Thank you for the recent coverage of the removal
of derelict vessels; it is always beneficial to keep the
public informed of these programs. It is further
beneficial to those citizens which reside in the
unincorporated areas of Broward County to be assured
Broward County functions in the vessel removal
process every bit as diligently as the other
municipalities mentioned in the article.
Information presented in the article [and
subsequent letter to the editor] suggests the county has
no means of requiring removal of these vessels, nor
placing fines or removal charges against the known
property owners should they fail to comply. This is not
the case; hearings are routinely scheduled to order the
problem corrected. Broward County also participates
in the state funded (Department of Natural Resources-
DNR) Derelict Vessel Removal Grant Program. Those
vessels targeted for the grant program must. meet
specific criteria, total abandonment with no trace of
ownership being a primary consideration. These are the
vessels that have been dragged into the public waters
and dumped; no property owner (other than the county
or state government) can be held responsible and no
owner of the vessel can be identified to be held
In the first year of our participation with this grant,
14 derelict vessels were removed from these navigable
waters. The removal of seven more vessels has been
approved by DNR for the second year funding. The
only drawback to the program there are no
substitutions to the approval list! Should a vessel be
qualified after the funding is allocated, it must wait and
be processed for removal with the next batch, which
could take up to one year. The county's only other
recourse, which is followed in the more serious cases,
is to expend funds to remove a dangerous vessel or
lessen a hazardous condition.
This is the case with the vessel [mentioned in the
letter] located behind 2606 Okeechobee Lane,
Lauderdale Isles. Ownership had been determined and
the police agencies were attempting contact. When it
was established the vessel could be qualified as
abandoned, our agency was given jurisdiction and the
SS United States to be auctioned off
To the Editor:
Last week I was extremely distressed to read that
the once great super liner SS United States will
probably be sold at auction on Feb. 9 to the highest
bidder, in all probability, a principal of Taiwan. This
once great passenger ship, the largest and fastest
commercial ship ever built in the United States, the
queen of the once great US Maritime fleet, might soon
end as scrap steel to feed the economy of the Far East.
The SS United States was built in 1952 at a cost of
79 million dollars a prime example of the US
technological prowess. 990 feet long, and capable of a
top speed of 42 knots (48 miles per hour), she beat the
best the British, Italians and Germans could offer. All
the comforts of a great hotel traveling at an average
speed of 33.5 knots (38.5 miles per hour). The SS
United States was withdrawn from service in
November of 1969, a victim of the jet age. She has
been languishing in Norfolk, Virginia ever since,
'slowly but surely deteriorating. Her furnishings were
stripped and sold to pay dock fees. The ship herself
will probably be sold to pay the remaining fees due.
We, the people of the United States, have saved
many symbols of our past battleships named after
states, old forts dating from the Revolution, space craft
and many other creations designed and built by
Americans. Yet, this country is about to throw away
the greatest and last symbol of our once great maritime
heritage. The Maritime Administration (Marad) wants
nothing to do with the ship, although they have the
right to take back the vessel if it were not maintained
according to the original sales contract. The ship has
not been maintained.
Congress can save this great symbol of our
maritime heritage before it is too late. With some public
funding and private donations the SS United States
could be saved, partially restored and perhaps donated
to the Smithsonian Institute and used as a marine
exhibit. Perhaps for the first time the Smithsonian
would have to charge an admission to help defray
some of the upkeep costs, but it would be worth it.
One thing is for certain, unless something is done
by Congress, and soon, the superliner SS United
States will certainly be sold for scrap metal and the
United States will lose another piece of our proud
heritage, for now and future generations.

Everglades oil proposal doesn't hold water
To the Editor:
I recently attended a meeting held by an agency
that is conducting a study into the environmental
effects of oil drilling in the Everglades. Shell Oil has
approval to put down a test well and will begin drilling
in the very near future if they are not stopped.
I was surprised by this as I believed we were
moving in the direction of saving and restoring the
Everglades and drilling for oil did not fit that scenario.
Present at the meeting were leaders of the Billys,
the traditional Sdminole Indians who still live in the old
way and see their land threatened by oil contamination.
A Florida panther whose hunting ground would be
affected made an appearance. There were many angry
young people there Who voiced their contempt for the
deceipt and greed they see shaping events to destroy
that which they hold dear. A representative of the
Broward County Commissioner was present to voice
his disapproval. The Congressman from Cooper City
personally committed himself to fighting this project.
Friends of the Everglades offered all the facts the
agency needs to realize the incredible potential for

disaster should this project begin.
The well site is in the area of Interstate 1-75 and
State Road 84. The test well itself will be located on
Miccosukee Indian Reservation land that is adjacent to
Water Conservation land. The well will be constructed
on Indian land but will be drilled down then
horizontally underneath the border into Water
I think so many believe there is nothing we can do
to change things. Well, I believe that phone calls and
letters work and ask you if you would take the time to
consider being heard if in fact you would like to
prevent Shell from exploiting the Everglades. You can
submit your comments to the Bureau of Land
Management and it may just be the one too many

vessel was scheduled for removal. It should be pointed
out, there was no intentional delay in the final removal
process, the time frame centered around the
identification of multi-leveled jurisdiction and careful
adherence to the laws governing such matters.
To summarize, there is a procedure available to
address all forms of derelict or abandoned vessels,
whether in water or dry stored on a trailer. Our job is
to identify the best suited procedure which will
expedite compliance and minimize the cost to Broward
County and its taxpayers.

To the Editor:
We apologize for a long silence and hope you still
remember Fazisi and our project
Last summer was a critical time for us. In July,
Fazisi was hit by lightening near Philadelphia, and in
August she was damaged quite badly during Hurricane
Bob. It was a hard time, but with considerable effort
we managed to overcome these problems.
Now we are working very hard and making good
progress and hope that all of our problems are well
During the summer 1991 program, we met many

Three years ago I bought a new boat with twin 454
Mercury inboard-outboards. When new, one engine
always ran ten degrees hotter than the other.
Now, that same engine is running 40 degrees
hotter. The water pickup is clear and I removed the
thermostat. The gauges are working properly.
Is there any way to determine if it's the impeller,
water pump, manifolds, etc., without taking apart and
replacing parts? What should I do first?
Please check the water temperature first to see if
gauges or sending units are correct. To check water
circulation take the hoses off leading into the manifolds
for water flow through the heat exchanger of the hot
motor. If no or little water flows from hoses, check
impellers on the engine and outdrive water pumps.
I own an I/O boat equipped with a 225 horsepower
OMC electric shift outdrive. Besides changing the oil
frequently and taking good care, I would like to
prolong the life of it. I've heard about and used "Slick
50" automatic transmission formula in my car and
obtained good results.
This fluid contains Teflon which adheres to the
metal and moving parts of the transmission to reduce
wear and tear. Do you recommend to use the product

There are many additives on the market that claim
extraordinary results when added to the oil or grease in
motors and transmissions. While I have never tested
some of these miracle additives, I really believe if you
change your oil and lubricants, put in new filters as
recommended by the manufacturers you will prolong
the life of your engines. Most fuels, oils and lubricants
-have additives in them by the refinery.
About your outdrives if your seals are good and
you drain the outdrive and change the lubricant
seasonally, you have done a good job. Check for
coOtitaminants and water when you do.
I My I/O is equipped with a Chevy 350 CID engine
with dual batteries. Since some time ago, my batteries
have not charged during engine operation. I've had a
new rebuilt Delco Remy alternator installed and
checked and put new wires and plug-in connector. My
master switch and ceramic resistor work fine and my
voltage gauge shows voltage drop. I've also changed

Dock rental issue unresolved
despite ordinance changes
By M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE "Dock rentals have not
been dealt with," observed City Commission Jack
Latona, who crafted a recent ordinance change which
focuses city code enforcement efforts away from boat
ownership and upland occupancy toward "behaviors
which result in abuses." Latona, who represents
southwestern Fort Lauderdale and most of the New
River waterfront neighborhoods within the city,
anticipates the decades-long dock rental debate to
continue when the commission examines the
Waterways Master Plan and zoning code revisions later
Fellow City Commissioner John Aurelius,
representing Coral Ridge, cast the lone vote against
Latona's proposal when it was enacted February 4
after a second reading and three public hearings.
"It gives opportunity to commercial intrusion" into
single-family residential neighborhoods, said Aurelius
about the new city law. He said he is in favor of
reasonable dock usage but he wants to restrict and put
teeth in city enforcement of abuses. Asked what
"abuses" he was referring to, Aurelius reported that he
was examining: finger pier construction in R-l areas,
loud boat noises, setback infringements by moored
vessels, dock rental advertising and, of course, live-
Aurelius concedes that enforcement of the old,
current and any new city dockage codes would be
difficult if not impossible, particularly given the city's
budget and manpower problems.

17th Street Causeway
tests bridge schedule
By M.G. SWIFT
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE After a month of
experimenting with various drawbridge opening
schedules at the Southeast 17th Street Causeway over
the Intracoastal Waterway, the United States Coast
Guard and Florida's Department of Transportation
(DOT) have decided to conduct a 60-day test of
,opening the busy span at the top of the hour and at the
half hour between 7 a.m.-7 p.m. seven days per week,
,according to Petty Officer Veronica Cady with the
Seventh U.S. Coast Guard District Public Affairs
Office in Miami.
Reacting to public comments about the old 15-
minute clock, a similar 30-minute countdown and the
0:00/0:30 scheduled openings which were tried in
late January and most of February the Coast Guard
and the DOT are going to continue running the
0:00/0:30 openings through April 24. At the end of the
test period the agencies will decide on a permanent
bridge schedule based on their observations and public
Motorists and boaters wishing to comment on the
test may do so in writing to: Florida Department of

County, effectiveness questioned
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
As the last of Palm Beach County's new
Intracoastal Waterway speed zone signs were posted,
questions were already being raised as to how effective
the manatee protection and boater safety zones would
The new speed zones were developed last year as
part of a state requirement that all manatee counties
implement a manatee protection plan. As a result, slow
speed, idle speed, and 25 mph speed zones are in effect
in various combinations throughout the 45 miles of
Palm Beach County's Intracoastal Waterway (ICW).
Many of the zones are located in 50- to 300-foot
buffers which extend from both shorelines. These
buffers are designed to protect the manatees as they
feed and travel in the shallows of the waterway.
Sharon Tyson, a specialist with the Department of
Natural Resources' (DNR) Marine Research Institute
in Tequesta, stated, "They (the speed zones) should
have a positive effect on manatee protection once
people start paying attention to the signs and slowing
Tyson related that so far this year, four manatee
deaths have been reported in Dade, Broward, and Palm
Beach Counties, with at least one suspected of being
partially attributed to boat strikes. Many fresh boat
strikes have also been observed on manatees using
Palm Beach County's warm water refuges. The
manatees prefer to congregate around safe areas such
as the Riviera Beach power plant, where the waters are
warm and no boating is allowed.
Some environmental agency officials are skeptical
that the new speed zones will work because of the lack
of manpower to enforce them.
Dave Carson, an environmental specialist with
Palm Beach County's Department of Environmental
Resource Management, stated, "the zones would be
very effective if they were enforced, but because of the
lack of personnel and the money to pay for additional
officers, the speed limits probably won't have much
Currently, there are only two Florida Marine Patrol
offers patrolling Palm Beach County's ICW at any one
Jerry Rogers, a Florida Marine Patrol District 10
major, says it's too early to tell how effective the speed
zones will be, but so far stops and citations have been
Rogers stated, "The perception was.that people
would not pay attention to the new rules and carry on
as usual, but the information that we put forward to
educate the .boating public seems to have worked
because the majority of people are obeying the law."
Members of Palm Beach County's Marine
Industries Association, who worked with state officials
in developing the speed zone rules, are generally
pleased with the package which was finally put into
Marc Masciarotte, past president of the PBC-MIA,
asserted, "Considering what happened with the

one of the most workable and fair plans instituted so

wouldn't get blanketed with speed zones, and so we

Intracoastal bridgetender loses job
DELRAY BEACH A bridgetender, who opened

Joseph Green, who was walking west over the

He was treated at Delray Community Hospital for

PALM BEACH A U.S. Circuit Court judge
ruled that Palm Beach does not have to go through the
normal bidding process before getting started on a
contract to build a $2 million protective artificial reef.
A New Jersey company had sued Palm Beach to
have open bidding on the project. Palm Beach's
attorney argued that the town would have lost $5,000
in state money set aside for monitoring the reef if it had
gone to competitive bidding.
Latest plans for waterfront park
DELRAY BEACH Veterans groups who were
concerned over architects plans to move a memorial
statue in Veterans Park as part of a redevelopment i
project were pleased when it was decided that the statue
remain in its present location.
The city of Delray Beach plans to spend $500,000
in bond money to renovate Veterans Park on the

could begin later on in the year.

Ukrainian sailor discovers Miami
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Ivan Kyrychenko sailed from the town of
Maricipol in the Soviet Union before the breakup of the
USSR and arrived in South Florida five months later as
a citizen of Ukraine. The skipper-sailing Bluz, a 27-
foot sloop which, with friends, he built from the keel
up, timed his arrival to coincide with Americai's
discovery year, arriving at the Port of Miami at 12
minutes after midnight on January 1, 1992.
His Visa for the UnitedStates was obtained in the
Bahamas during a Nassau layover while he waited for
the appropriate departure date.
The cruise ranged from Maricipol across the Black
Sea with a stop at Yalta, through the Bosporus, the
Hurricane preparations run into
With the season some 90 days away it's not too
early for hurricane talk and efforts to find safe
anchorage for recreational boats. Dade's hurricane
planners already have discarded plans for flotilla
evacuation up the Miami River. More recently plans to
anchor lengths of cable on the bottom with secure
moorings to which boats could tie for a fee came
unraveled when surrounding property owners on the
shores of Maule Lake objected. The current effort is
directed toward creating the refuge at the Marine
As the number of pleasure boats increased and
storage has diminished, boaters without waterfront at
which to secure a boat are becoming increasingly
frustrated in a search for a secure hurricane hole. Prices
tend to escalate each year as marinas enforce hurricane
clauses that ban boaters from docks. And waterfront
property owners in waters deemed relatively secure
either refuse dockage to boaters or set prices as high as

Atlantic. The adventurous sailor called at the Canary
Islands before the crossing to the Bahamas, according

If the cruise was relatively uneventful, attribute it to
the skipper's background. The 50-year-old is, by
profession, a merchant seaman whose "daytime job" is
first mate aboard vessels of the Azov Shipping Co.,
which operates a fleet of some 130 vessels.
His employer became something of an enabler by
becoming a sponsor for the cruise when the project

The 27-foot sloop has a 1.5-ton lead keel, 10-foot
beam and a 5-foot draft. Bottom plates are 7

Schwed described the metal mast as constructed from
irrigation pipe used in the former USSR.
In Miami the Bluz was berthed at Miami Beach's

The entire voyage was made without benefit of any
of the sophisticated navigation equipment common in
the West. Schwed reported the skipper was without a
marine radio, used Russian military charts, and relied
on celestial navigation to chart his progress.
Kyrychenko was joined by friends during the
construction process, and read books including
reports on solo crossings of the Atlantic for
background on his journey.
Support for the voyage was strong, however, with
a welding company joining to help, and his employer
contributing a small diesel engine. Even financing was
available from local sources.

the Second Most Releases in the Private Boat Division.
Saja released three sailfish and won the award based
on time, releasing his last sailfish first.
Top charter boat angler was Oxford, Maryland
resident Suzanne Litty, who released a total of 4
sailfish aboard the Fish Hawk with Captain Dave
Dotterweich. For her efforts Litty was awarded a
magnificent sailfish lamp. Litty also earned two Daily
Sailfish Release awards for posting three sail releases
the first day and one the final day.
The Louis S. Boski Memorial Trophy for the Most
Outstanding Non-Sailfish Catch was awarded to
Wellington resident David Webb for catching a 16-
pound blackfin tuna on 12-pound spinning tackle.
Sloppy sea conditions and strong winds prevented a
number of fly rod anglers from competing for the Bob
Kleiser Memorial Trophy for the Most Sailfish Caught
on Fly Fishing Tackle. Capt. Charlie Bouchard,
fishing on his custom Rybovich International the
Ruthie, tagged a total of four sailfish with experimental
nylon dart tags to claim the top tagging award.
The 25-boat tournament fleet fishing out of the
Sailfish Marina on Singer Island released a total of 49
sailfish during the three-day event. Day one proved to
be the best day of the event with 22 sails released. As
the weather improved fishing declined the following
days of the tournament with 17 sails reported on day
two and only 10 on the final day of competition. While
most boats were able to find sails, many Derby anglers
had trouble locating other eligible tournament species.
Size was not nearly as important as just finding the
fish. The Grand Champion Dolphin Award went to
Singer Island angler Josh Arwood for catching a ten-
and-one-half pond dolphin aboard the Tide Runner.
"I Take My Tops To
The only wahoo of the tournament was Pro Herbert's
eight-and-three-fourth pound fish which was good
enough to receive the Grand Champion Wahoo
Award. Lantana angler Dave Taylor fishing aboard the
Naughty Nuff received the Grand Champion Kingfish
Award for a 15-pound king mackerel. Because
Taylor's mackerel was the largest of the Grand
Champion Dolphin, Kingfish and Wahoo he also was
awarded the newly designed Nick Smith Edition Kite
This year's top Charter Boat Captain Award was
won by Capt. Dave Dotterweich with a total of 5
sailfish releases on the 47 Buddy Davis sportfisherman

A number of unique awards were also presented at
the Derby dinner including the First Sailfish Award

Last Fish Award went to Riviera Beach resident John
O'berg fishing aboard the Kelly-O with Capt. Larry
Jones who released the Final Fish in the Derby only 45
minutes before lines out time on the last day. The West
Palm Fishing Club's "Broken Bill" Hard Luck Trophy
also went to the crew of the Kelly-O for releasing their
fishing kite to a passing freighter. No one was hurt,
but the kite is speculated to be somewhere in South
America by now.
The new 3-day format of the Silver Sailfish Derby

Mercury conference spurs momentum for incinerator moratorium
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
At the second Florida Mercury Conference held in
January in West Palm Beach, state agency officials,
scientists, environmentalists and others stressed the
need to do something about the mercury problem
which is impacting the Everglades.
Mercury contamination is posing a dangerous
threat to endangered species, many birds, animals and
According to a letter to the governor written by the
Florida Mercury Alliance, "Mercury contamination has
reached a crisis level in south Florida and poses an
extreme threat to Florida's sensitive environment. The
public has been warned not to eat fish caught in 65
percent of the state's lakes and streams tested for
mercury. Since 1989, mercury has contributed to the
death of at least three Florida panthers and undermines
the state's panther recovery program."
A highlight of this year's first conference occurred
during the opening session, when members of
Greenpeace disrupted the proceedings, demanding an
answer from the speakers as to whether or not the state
is planning to allow construction of the Lee County
Chanting slogans such as "Save the Glades, ban
the bum," Greenpeace members refused to quiet down
until Department of Environmental Resources (DER)
Secretary Carol Browner told the group she would
address their questions outside the meeting room.
Browner has since testified before a House
committee, recommending that a moratorium be issued
on future incinerator construction in the state of
Bill Hinkley, chief of the Bureau of Solid and
Hazardous Waste with DER, stated, "The principal
issue is not so much the air pollution side of the
mercury problem as with conflicts with recycling
efforts we believe recycling should take place over
Despite Hinkley's views, DER did permit the Lee
County project, although the Governor and Cabinet,
which have the ultimate approval for such projects have
remanded the issue back to DER for further evaluation.
Meanwhile, Representative Keith Arnold (Fort.
Myers) will be introducing legislation calling for some
type of moratorium on incinerator construction.
Members of Greenpeace estimate that 96.6 percent
of total man-made mercury emissions in South Florida
come from waste incinerators.
Lee Irving, conservation chairman of the Royal
PalmAudubonSociety, stated: "I support a moratorium
on incinerators; I think it's a very important first step
and it will give us some time to develop a sensible
approach to combatting the mercury problem."
Doctor Dave Gowan, an environmental specialist
with DER, explained that mercury accumulation in the
environment occurs from any organism that eats fish or
Gowan stated that 99 percent of the source of the
mercury problem can be traced to the oceans, but that
incinerators are causing enough of a contamination
problem so that better regulations are needed to help
The mercury problem is especially severe in the
Everglades located in south Florida, where fish have
been found to have tissue concentration of mercury
exceeding 1.5 ppm. As a result of these dangerously
high levels of mercury, the Department of Health and
Rehabilitative Services has issued a health advisory,
urging limited or no consumption of several species of
fish caught in the Everglades, including largemouth
bass, warmouth, oscar, yellow bullhead catfish, gar

lobster during this period, and prohibit lobster
harvesting within 300 feet of bridges during this
period," said Lee Schlesinger, spokesman for the

Diving March 1992 Waterfront News 19
Divers work together to right the Sherman
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News columnist
Thanks to cooperation from different segments of
the local diving industry, sport divers in Broward
County will soon be able to safely dive the 55-foot
former treasure salvager, the Sherman. The Sherman
had been sunk in August 1991 ag another part of the
Broward County's artificial reef community; unlike the
others before it, the ship came to rest on the bottom
upside down in 72 feet of water.
Ken Banks, Broward County's Artificial Reef
Coordinator, said that the mishap occurred when an air
bubble stubbornly got itself stuck in the Sherman's
bow, leaving it upside down. Because some dedicated
and caring members of Broward's diving community
felt with each passing day the ship would only become
more of a diving hazard to sport divers, they got
together to set things right. It was felt that as the
Sherman continued to sit tenuously on the shifting
sands, it could collapse, possibly trapping divers
Using Walt DeMartini's dive charter boat as a
command post, professional divers under Tom
Gamage from a local diving service, recently dove
down and attached two sets of one inch steel cables to
the Sherman. Having accomplished that, it only
remains for another member of the diving community,
John Grady, to volunteer two of his tugboats to finish
the delicate job. That, DeMartini said, should be
accomplished by the end of February.
DeMartini explained that one of the tugs would be
stationary, and one would be moving away, each tug
attached to one of the steel cables. With one tug static
and the other tug moving, it is hoped the ship can be
flipped over to sit safely right side up. When the
operation gets underway, DeMartini said divers will be
in the water with underwater communications: They
will be able to talk to each other, to the tugs and to
DeMartini, where it will all be coordinated.
Ken Banks said that the Broward County Artifici
Program has dropped about twenty ships of various

sizes and shapes in shallow waters for sport divers
coming from all over the world to enjoy.
It all started in November of 1984 when the 197-
foot freighter, the Mercedes I, crashed ashore on Palm
Beach socialite Molly Wilmot's front yard during a
freak autumn storm. The International press became
caught up in the incident for a brief time, because
Molly Wilmot lived next door to the famous Kennedy
But Wilmot herself became a press darling, after
photos taken of her sipping champagne, while casually
standing beside her posh, oceanside pool, staring in
amused bewilderment at her new visitor, the rusting
freighter, were flashed to newspapers worldwide.
After a New Jersey salvage company finally pulled
the Mercedes I away frm the shores of Palm Beach
high society, one of life's strange twists took place. As
the Mercedes was freed, the Port of Palm Beach balked
when faced with what to do with the ship. Steve
Somerfield, from Broward County's Artificial. Reef
Program, jumped fast, and with the approval of Port
Everglades, offered the ship free dockage in Broward
When the distraught freighter was pulled
unceremoniously into Port Everglades, she was met by
an army of dedicated sport divers from the South
Florida Divers, a local club. The divers clambered
aboard and vigorously cleaned the ship for the Coast
Guard's approval so that the ship could be sunk. It had
become a community happening. The night before the
sinking a party was held aboard the doomed freighter
by South Florida Divers. During the party, boaters
from all over the county came alongside and bought T-
shirts commemorating the event.
The next day, Saturday, March 30, 1985, over 500
boats followed the Mercedes I on her last trip to her
new offshore home. With thousands watching from
boats and planes, and Molly Wilmot sipping more
champagne from a passing blimp, charges were set and
the Mercedes I sunk to fame in 97 feet of water a mile
off Fort Lauderdale. The rest, as they say, is history.

20 Waterfront News March 1992 Admiralty
Small boat and admiralty law: The Alabama Bell
By HERB MARKOW
Special to the Waterfront News
Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles by
Dade County attorney Herb Markow on small boat and
admiralty law cases.
The U.S. sued Steinmetz to recover the ship's bell
of the CSS Alabama. After the ship's construction in
Liverpool, England, it departed without guns which
had been shipped on a different vessel. In two years it
captured or destroyed 64 U.S. merchant vessels until
it engaged USS Kearsage off Cherbourg in June 1864
when it was defeated in battle. It surrendered, and it
Antique dealer Steinmetz participated in an antique
gun show in London in 1979 where he heard of the
recovery of the Alabama bell. He paid a deposit on it
and went to the Isle of Guernsey to authenticate it.
Purportedly, diver William Lawson salvaged the bell
about 1936. It hung in a bar until World War II.
Guernsey was captured by the Germans from the
British who then destroyed the bar in a bombing raid.
The bell passed from hand to hand until bought by
Steinmetz from antique dealer Walker in Hasting for
$12,000. Steinmetz brought the bell to the U.S. and
offered it to the Naval Academy, but they were
unwilling or unable to trade or buy it. He stored the
bell until December 1990 when it was cataloged for
auction in a gallery. Naval authorities noticed this
advertisement and claimed the bell by right of capture,
right of succession, and lack of abandonment.
Steinmetz counterclaimed for the bell or its market
value; for as much as was deserved, and for
compensation to avoid unjust enrichment of the U.S.
Both sides moved for summary judgment.
Held: For the U.S. Under maritime law, capture of
an enemy vessel confers title and ownership on the
captor, so the surrender conferred title and possession
of all the Alabama's appurtenant equipment prior to its
sinking. Moreover, it became the property of the U.S.
as successor to all rights and property of the
Confederate government. Under the constitution, only
Congress or persons authorized by it may dispose of
property by appropriate regulations. Title to such
property cannot be divested by negligence, delay,
laches, mistake, or unauthorized actions by
subordinate officials. The U.S. never formally
abandoned the Alabama, so the bell remained U.S.

property. This is consistent with International Law
regarding warships sunk during armed conflict. Those
vessels which are clearly identifiable by state of origin
carry sovereign immunity and a presumption against
abandonment of title. The legislative history of the -

assertions by the U.S.; and it also excludes -
abandonment by implication from circumstances of the t S

The Steinmetz counterclaims variously failed
against the sovereign immunity of the U.S. because
the requests for affirmative relief extended beyond ---
purely defensive matters.
The court expressed a view that fairness and equity *. .:
suggested, apart from legal merits, that the U.S.
should reimburse Steinmetz for expenses of acquiring, -, ..

people; but by Navy policy, a sunken naval vessel is a

Commerce March 1992 Waterfront News 21
By GREG PROTEAU
Special to the Waterfront News
CHICAGO Elements of recession affecting
consumer durables were the main forces pushing the
pleasure boat marketplace lower in 1991. Falling
consumer confidence levels and employment statistics
coupled with a tightening of consumer credit
requirements despite falling interest rates and
stagnant personal income growth combined to depress
boat and related equipment and service sales for the
third consecutive year.
Especially buffeted were product sales in the large
inboard cruiser class which suffered from the
imposition of a new, federal 10 percent excise tax
assessed on the amount of new boats costing more
than $100,000. Manufacturers in this sector shuttered
plants, laid off in excess of 20,000 blue collar
workers, and in numerous cases entered bankruptcy or
simply failed. Sales in the large cruiser class
plummeted an unprecedented 50 percent plus to a 20-
year low mark.
For the market as a whole, according to the
National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA),
estimates of new boat unit sales declined to 439,000 in
1991 from the year-earlier 534,100 units, or a drop of
18 percent. Total dollar sales of new boats fell to $3.3
billion in the year, a 23 percent contract tion.
Expenditures on all boating products and services in
'91 were $10.5 billion, reflecting a 23 percent decline
from the previous year. Declines visited all product
groups tracked by NMMA with canoes and personal
watercraft least impacted with declines of 4.0 and 5.5
"Three years of declining sales has severely tested
the boating industry," comments NMMA president
Jeff W. Napier,"and we remain in a survival mode."
He adds, however, that a fundamental growth
foundation remains in place for the market and that he
expects to see a "bounce up" by mid-1992. "New
product inventories are mostly clean and with each
passing year pent-up demand for new models
increases." Evidence of the market bottom came in the
last half of 1991 as sales of aluminum fishing and
utility craft picked up at retail. Buyers who plan to

finance their boating purchase are also expected to be
encouraged by installment interest rates lowest in
Over the long term, Napier points to continuing
positive demographic trends, especially growth of
consumers in the 35-to-54-year-old age range who are
primary boat buyers, which should encourage
moderate market expansion through the year 2010.
Growth in U.S. boating products for export which
saw a 28 percent rise in 1990, the latest year figures
are available is expected to continue as long as the
value of the dollar remains stable in world currency
A significant caution rules this scenario, Napier
warns. "Growing taxation at all levels of government
will continue to stifle our growth, and growth of other
industries dependent upon consumers' discretionary
spending ability. Each new rise in tax takes buyers out
of our market. Worse, punitive taxes directed at so-
called luxury goods, including boats, have once again
proved to only devastate employment, in the targeted
industries without providing any net tax gain."
Members of Congress are expected to address the
subjects of boat excise tax repeal and general tax relief
for all wage earners when they reconvene in late
January. Action on both fronts will provide necessary
breathing room for the boating business to get on with
delivering wholesome family recreation to the nation
and the world.

By JANET MAIZNER &
Special to the Waterfront News
MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica The 20th sailing of
the Pineapple Cup Race to Montego Bay has been won
by a Farr 79 Challenge America. The winning yacht,
skippered by Patrick O'Callaghan of the Montego Bay
Yacht Club, also took first place honors in IMS Class.
Pipe Dream won the PHRF Class.
Donnybrook, a Santa Cruz 70, co-skippered by
Bill Martin of Ann Arbor, MI and Jim Muldoon of
Washington, DC, took second place in IMS class
followed by Congere, a Pedrick 82 skippered by Bevin
Koeppel of New York, NY in third place and Bully, a
Baltic 50 skippered by Richard P. Heffering of
Greenwich, CT in fourth place.
The first three boats to finish posed a serious threat
to the long standing Pineapple Cup Race record of
three days, three hours, 40 minutes and seven seconds
set in 1971 for the 811-mile course from Fort
Lauderdale to Montego Bay. Squalls that delivered up
to 60-knot winds were reported by the early finishers,
and managed to put Donnybrook, the first boat across
the finish line in an elapsed time of three days, nine
hours, eleven minutes and 57 seconds, just five-and-a-
half hours off the record.
In PHRF class Pipe Dream, Scott Piper's J40
from Miami, took line honors and class first in
Performance Handicap Racing. Magnolia, a Beneteau
38 from Fort Lauderdale owned by Buck Gillette, took
second in PHRF followed by Grand Cayman's Jacuna,
skippered by John Stafford. Elusive, a J44 skippered
by Jim Lawrence of Conroe, TX garnered fourth place
This was the second Pineapple Cup Race for both
Gillette and Lawrence and the fourth Pineapple Cup
Race for Stafford.
The race started in Fort Lauderdale with steady
westerlies of 20-25 knots which got even small
PHRF boats around the northern tip of Eleuthera the
first day, while IMS boats were already off Cat Island,
logging over 300 miles. The second day was a bit
slower, but still a pace on the race record with the big
boats clearing Great Inagua, and smaller boats behind

Italian cuisine served in classic waterfront setting
By JENNIFER HEIT
waterfront News reviewer
Quality Italian food served in a classic waterfront
setting is no oddity here in Fort Lauderdale thanks to
Sergio's on the Water.
A few years back, Sergio and Carol Del Giudice's
dreamed of owning their own trattoria. At the time the
couple was living aboard their 36' custom cruiser and
Sergio served as maitre d' at La Perla.
He opened his namesake, Sergio's on the Water,
about two years ago. And now former La Perla chef
James MaLandro specializes in northern and southern
Italian cuisine buttressed by "a Floridian and
Caribbean touch," Sergio says.
Clearly, the best seats in the house overlook a wide-
angle view of the west bank of the Middle River, just
south of the Sunrise Boulevard Bridge. Cloth covered
tables sit beneath an outdoor red and green striped
pavilion, where the recent comfortable night-time
weather offers a nice respite from air conditioning.,
If you're coming by water, Sergio's docks can
accommodate boats up to 50 feet. There are only four
slips, so it's probably a good idea to call ahead.
Those without their own boat might want to
experience ocean breezes aboard a 38-foot charter boat
provided by an adjacent marina. A $45 package deal
includes a sunset sail, with $15 of the ticket price
applied toward cost of the dinner.
A wide and varied menu caters to an upscale
crowd, but actually prices are really quite reasonable,
with most entrees under $14.
All pasta dinners, by the way, can be ordered as
appetizers at half the price of entrees. Other cold and
hot appetizer selections include a Caesar salad for two
($7), thin-sliced filet mignon with Parmesan cheese
($6.95), clams casino or oreganata, ($5.95), to name
just a few.
We started dinner with an appetizer of ravioli Ai
Quattro Formaggi ($6.95). Made with four different
cheeses and lightly dressed with a marinara sauce, the
dish was delicious.
This was followed by a light salad and a basket of
herb-scented toasted garlic rolls. A bowl of fresh-
grated Parmesan cheese adorns every table.
For a main course, we opted for the shrimp
Francese ($13.95), jumbo shrimp flavored with butter,
lemon and white wine. There was.no doubt the
seafood was fresh, and more than adequately

We were also quite pleased with the rigatoni alla
vodka ($10.95), rigatoni cooked al dente and topped
with a pink sauce spiked with vodka and brandy.
Service is excellent, with waiters knowing how to
serve well without too much hovering about.
There are 14 pasta choices ranging from $8.95 to
$13.95, i.e. fettucine Capresi, linguine carbonara, Le

Waterfront restaurants fight lagging
economy with weekly street fests
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE When economic times
turned threatening, some waterfront restaurant owners
took their cause to the street.
They invented Friday Fest, a weekly street party
offering food, drink and entertainment along Northeast
32nd Avenue off East Oakland Park Boulevard.
It's a marketing tool designed to attract business to
restaurants belonging to BridgeSide Square, a newly
formed association billing itself as the city's "only
waterfront dining and entertainment neighborhood."
.. To the business owners along Northeast 32nd
Avenue, it made sense to ban together.
"We all have common interests in the area," said
Tony Gee, general manager of Charley's Crab and a
member of BridgeSide."You have to consider the
In late February, the association decided to move
the party to the docks behind Shooters and Mombasa
Bay, southeast of the Oakland Park Bridge.
"We were missing the boat," said BridgeSide
Square president Jan Idelman, who believes people like
to associate boating and water with Fort Lauderdale.
"People have a natural affinity for the water."
Frank Manis, owner of Lauderdale's Cafe, located
on the north side of the bridge, disagrees. Holding the

fests on the docks will only benefit a few restaurants,
"The whole concept is to walk down the street," he
Ideally, BridgeSide Square will develop an identity
similar to Miami's Bayside a district of waterfront
destinations at one location, Gee said.-
Currently, the city is drawing up a master plan
with pedestrian walkways, landscaping and lighting
improvements, Idelman said.
So far, weekly parties have drawn about 500
people to Northeast 32nd Ave. Admission is free, and
appetizer-size entrees go for about $1.
The idea, of course, is that people will come back
to the restaurants for a full course dinner.
Gee says business at Charley's Crab is on the
upswing since the fests started. "My bai business has
really improved," he said.
