Issue 2 South Florid 's Nautic
man behind Irons' curtain:
Outspoken civic leader to head up Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board
By JEFFREY G. HARRELL
Waterfront News writer
Neighbors say it's nothing to see him walking
around his North Fork New River neighborhood
openly carrying a gun. Acquaintances, both friends
and political foes, say the one word that describes him
is "outspoken." He himself writes in his
autobiography that he punched out his own mother.
Yet, most agree that Fort Lauderdale is better off
with newly-elected Marine Advisory Board Chairman
Frederick "Sonny" Irons than it would be without him.
"Sonny's one of those people you either like or
dislike," says Steve Boone, a former neighbor of
Irons. "What you see is what you get with him.
Sonny's a controversial guy, but he's totally honest
and he's got a strong religious conviction. He's one of
those guys that, when the bullets are flying, you want
him in your foxhole."
Irons, 46, has seen his share of foxholes,
especially around waterfront areas spanning the globe
from his native East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, up
and down the East Coast of the United States,
throughout the Bahamas and the Caribbean, and finally
in Fort Lauderdale with his wife and their three sons.
Professionally, Irons' resume' includes experience in
naval architecture, inventions that include an antenna-
matching device for high frequency communications,
and a wake-monitoring device to aid boats in the
control of rough waterway wakes.
And, true to his role of civic leader, he was one of
the organizers of the Waterfront Property Owner's
Association, co-founder and developer of Riverside
Park's Neighborhood Master Plan Program, as well as
serving on the Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board
and the Riverwalk Committee.
As the subject of a written profile, however, the
man, whom former Marine Advisory Board Chairman
Ame Carlson calls "the most knowledgeable man on or
about the city of Fort Lauderdale, commissioners
included," refused to cooperate.
You may not like what Sonny
says, but he knows what he's
"I don't want anything to do with that piece of
garbage," Irons said, referring to the Waterfront News
during a phone conversation.
"Your boss and I don't get along. And everything
that has ever been printed about me in that rag has been
false. Everything. Total fabrications. Thanks for
It's no fabrication that the outgoing Fort
Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board elected Irons to a
year's term as the board's chairman by a vote of 8-6
on April 6. The nip-and-tuck vote marked the return of
the board's policy where outgoing board members
voted on a chairman instead of last year's trial
procedure that saw incoming board members vote on
their own chairman.
"It was unusual," says Hugh Chappell, who ran
against.Irons for the board's chairmanship before
settling for election as vice chairman. "But it was not
exactly a hotly-contested contest. We're not politicians
or anything. We're simply an advisory board. Issues
come up as people seek relief."
Few, if any of those giving or seeking relief, are
questioning Iron's knowledge and input on issues that
confront the city's waterfront areas, including: speed
limits along the waterways and the effect the current 30
mph limit will have on the protection of manatees,
pollution in the waterways and pollution controls, the
construction of the new marina at Las Olas docks, and
whether or not private, single-family waterfront
homeowners will be able to rent dockage space for
As Waterfront Property Owners Association
President Joanne Becker says: "Nobody in the city
outside of Arne Carlson knows more about marine
issues or how to handle them than Sonny. You may
not like what Sonny says, but he knows what he's
And Irons, who reportedly opposes any further
lowering of the waterway speed limits, also has an ally
on the subject in his predecessor on the Marine
Advisory Board, former chairman Ame Carlson.
"We initiated the 30 mph limits six or seven years
ago," Carlson says. "And I can honestly say that it was
a mistake. All it ever did was reduce the speed of the
go-fast boats, but it increased the speeds of the slower
boats. Wakes have been equivalent, or even higher
than wakes were before."
So, it's not Irons' well-rounded, in-depth
knowledge of marine issues that is drawing a certain
amount of wariness from some waterfront community
Irons, himself, is the reason why some waterfront
activists and city officials squirm uneasily when his
name is brought up. Some compare his complex blend
of knowledge and crass to that of another prominent
marine community figure, former Fort Lauderdale
Mayor Bob Cox. "He's not as educated as BobGCox,"
says Boone, "but both have the same kind of
personality. Outspokenness is certainly a common
attribute of the two."
"Cox had a narrow point of view concerning the
waterways," says Al Gleichmann, a commercial artist
and former Beach Planning Council member who has
known Irons for the past 25 years. "Sonny is
progressive when it comes to the marine community.
He's no dumbo; he built his own boat, he put a pipe

Irons to present agenda
at next MAB meeting
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE Newly elected Marine
Advisory Board Chairman Sonny Irons has an agenda
he will present at the next MAB meeting.
The nature of those proposals will not be revealed
until the meeting, he said in a telephone interview.
Upcoming issues expected to be discussed include
educational programs for board members and the
public, waterfront development and navigation, said
Jamie Hart, supervisor of marine facilities for the city
and the city liaison to and from the board.
Other topics likely to be examined are the Birch-
Las Olas docks, Riverwalk, the waterway master plan
and an upgrading of waterway office facilities.
The next MAB meeting will take place May 7, 7
p.m. at Fort Lauderdale City Hall.

Irons following 'wet streets' path of Mayors Cox and Naugle
SONNY, FROM page 1
organ on it and he taught one of his kids to play it. And
he invented that antenna, although the Japanese are
giving him problems over the invention right now.
"But he's a wild man. He carries a gun. He
intimidates people, especially people who live close to
him. He and I used to be Jehovah's Witnesses
together, out knocking on doors and preaching. Then
he openly admitted to me that he can't stand blacks;
those comments began around '74 or '75, which
struck me as strange because he's Indian. I believe
that's one of the reasons why he was such. a strong
advocate of street barricades in his neighborhood. I
can see closing off access to streets to speeding cars,
but closing off access to streets because they happen to
be next to a tenement is a harm to the city."
Irons, who inherited his Native American Crow
Indian heritage from his father, authors a different
view toward minorities in his self-published
autobiography, A Mostly Waterfront Mind, than the
one Gleichmann describes. "My Jehovah's Witness
training taught me to accept all kinds of people as-
brothers," Irons writes. "The only difference between
a black man and a white man, for example, was a tiny
bit of pigment in the skin."
Still, and despite the self-described "Jehovah's
Witness training," Irons is said to be unpredictable
when a wayward "brother" crosses his path.
"Sonny's a maverick," says one Marine Advisory
Board member who didn't want his name used, "a
loose cannon. Put it this way, I wouldn't want Sonny
to have a vendetta against me because I wouldn't want
to put up with some of the things he's capable of
Like, maybe, beating his real brother "almost to
death," or punching out his own mother. Irons'
autobiography is laced with tales of an Indian father
whose profession as a boat captain took his family all
along the East Coast and as far away as Samoa, as well
as sibling fights that resulted in the breaking of family
ties involving one sister who hasn't spoken to Irons
"for about 20 years."
Irons also writes that his own mother broke off
ties;with her "number one son" after he "misjudged the
lengths of her-nose and my arm" during a mother-son
spat. "I thought," he writes, "maybe I'll scare her a
little. Planned on stopping just short of hernose. It
wasn't meant to t3. I creamed her!"
And although Irons showed his remorse by
attempting to apologize to his mother, he claims the
two have spoken only "three times" since the incident.
"You know," he writes, [his youngest son, an aspiring
artist] "is 11-1/2-years-old now and Mom has never
seen him." Grandmother Irons lives on the south fork
of New River, not far from Sonny's north fork home.
Gleichmann, who is also characterized in Irons'
book as "a wonderful artist" but "I'll never believe Al
is a sailor," says, "The story about me in his book is
fabricated." He also admits that "Sonny and I have
had our differences."
One Marine Advisory Board member who asked
not to be identified says matter-of-factly, "Sonny and I
sit on opposite sides of the fence."
But there are those such as neighbor Susan
Peterson who admit to opposing Irons on the
waterway speed limit issue out of concern for
endangered manatees. Yet the two have a "joking
relationship," Peterson explains, when it comes to
their debates. "Sonny's on the boaters' side and I'm on
the manatees' side," says the freelance writer. "But we
needle each other. It's a friendly, debating
And there's Peterson's husband, Steve Boone,
who says there's not a better person to have on your
side than Irons when push comes to shove on an issue.
Boone, who also admits to lining up on opposite sides
from Irons over issues like barricades in the Riverside
Park Homeowner's Association area (Boone, like
Gleichmann, says neighborhoods don't have the right
to close down city-maintained streets), also says that
anybody who disagrees with Irons over an issue had
better "do their homework" before taking him on in a
"During the meetings," Boone says, "he will treat
serious issues with snide comments. But he's
extremely well prepared. He comes off as a kind of a
crackpot at first, but when you look at the issue
enough, you realize that what he says usually holds a
lot of merit. Even issues he disagrees with have a lot of
merit. Still, a lot of people dismiss him as a crank, and
they are seriously mistaken when they do because hell
eat you alive if you try to debate him without
researching your subject"
Meaning, those who plan on confronting Irons and
his supporters with the marine community's primary
issue dock usage on single-family waterfront
property had better be prepared. Currently, it is
illegal for a single-family, waterfront homeowner to
rent dock space out to boat owners who don't have
a wild man. He
carries a gun. He intimidates
people, especially people who
live close to him ...
dockage facilities or who live aboard their boats. But
the issue's illegalities don't deter Irons from reportedly
favoring single-family homeowners' rights to rent out
dock space on their waterfront property.
"He wants people to have rights on their own
property," says Gleichmann. "And I'm with Sonny on
But, states one anonymous Marine Advisory
Board member, who maintains that land-locked
homeowners would be getting the short end of a
profitable stick should Irons' view ever become the
law: "He's just one vote out of 15.
"As chairman, he's got more obligations now and
less abilities to do the things that he's used to doing.
He's got some responsibilities now: he has to run the
meetings and he has to be fair and impartial. I don't
know if he can do that or not."
"I think he'll be a very effective chairman," Fort
Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle says of Irons.
Naugle served for five years on the MAB before
being elected first a city commissioner then mayor.
Former Mayor Cox used the same boating panel as a
springboard to higher office.
"[Irons is] real dedicated, and he's been a
neighborhood volunteer for a long time now. I've
worked with him before on the Riverside Park
Neighborhood Association board, and he's got a real
love of Fort Lauderdale's waterways, especially the
North Fork area of New River. Not to mention that

Live-aboard lifestyle attacked by 'landlubber bigots'
To the Editor:
I am writing to straighten out some misconceptions
which our land-based brethren entertain concerning the
One major misunderstanding involved the belief of
.many land-based people that liveaboard boaters pay no
taxes and are thus "freeloaders." My wife and I paid
the state of Florida $4,000 in sales tax when we
purchased our sailboat; these taxes, I believe, go to
support the local schools, highways, etc. In addition,
we pay taxes through our dockage fees, which are
$400 per month. Saying that liveeoard. boaters shirk
their tax load is a bit like saying that all renters
everywhere are shirkers, or freeloaders.
Another major misconception, voiced by a woman
in your last publication, is that liveaboard boaters
pollute more than their landbased counterparts. The
average house pollutes far more than a boat. For
example, excessive electric usage causes pollution.
Our electric bill averages $15 a month on a yearly
basis. Compare that to the average house bill of $150-
$200 a month. Our water usage is similarly penurious;
80 gallons lasts us two weeks. If everyone in South
Florida were as conscientious about water usage as are
the liveaboards, the water shortage would not exist.
How about that water pollution, called by this
same woman, "disgusting?" Most of the marinas on
our side of Isle of Venice have on-shore toilet and
shower facilities: we use them. The homeowners of

This comes not from the liveaboard boaters, but from
the thousands of pleasure boaters who, in a single
weekend, pollute the water more than liveaboard
boaters do in many years. These fuel-guzzling vessels
put diesel and gas into the water; untended vessels
with automatic bilge pumps pump whatever oil is in the
'bilge overboard. I have witnessed many marina fuel
fillings in which the gas or diesel overflows, but this is
not caused by the liveaboard boaters, not do we dump
hundreds of styrofoam cups into the water every
weekend. My wife and I have fished many of the latter
out of the water because we value the medium that
By the way, if the City of Fort Lauderdale is so
concerned about water pollution, how is it that none of
the city's exhorbitantly priced marinas have any on-
shore toilet or shower facilities? Nevertheless, they
have the unmitigated temerity to write "no pumping
over" on their moorings. One vessel I know of with a
6-foot draft tried to go to the Las Olas pump-out
station and promptly ran aground then was bashed
by the persistent wake around Las Olas bridge.

Coast Guard consistency requested on right
of navigation and anchoring policies
To the Editor:
As one who is concerned about the ever-increasing
restrictions placed on a boater's right to navigate and
anchor by municipalities and local governments, I
thought you might like to have some of the latest news
on this issue.
Following a request by the Boat Owners
Association of the United States that Coast Guard
Headquarters in Washington, D.C. get involved, Adm.
J.W. Kime, the Commandant of the Coast Guard, has
ordered a full legal review of this issue by the Coast
Guard's Chief Counsel.
This is certainly welcome news because, up until
now, each of the Coast Guard's districts has taken a
different approach to this issue. Some districts, like the
7th District in Miami, have clearly stated that boaters
have the right to freely navigate and anchor. However,
other Coast Guard districts around the country have
either looked the other way when conflicts arose or
responded that the Coast Guard will not get involved.
We believe that Commandant Kime's decision to
seek a consistent policy is a major step in the right

Michael Sciulla, V.P.
Boat Owners Association
of the United States,
Dear Mr. Sciulla
Thank you for your letter of February 27, 1992,
requesting that "the Coast Guard promulgate a
consistent and uniform policy to guide its districts as to
the limitations that state and localities may impose on a
boater's right to navigate and anchor."
I agree with your suggestion. This issue has come
up several times lately in different states, so in order to
be consistent I have asked the Chief Counsel to
conduct afull legal review. Unfortunately, this cannot
be completed before your April 1 deadline. I will let
you know the results as soon as possible.
Admiral J. W. Kime,

Isle and Isle of Venice were quoted as five times above
average (my water test performed at a local lab showed
3.5). Isn't it quite probable that this land-based
pollution, in washing down to the ocean, also pollutes
the Hendricks & Venice area? None of the Isles
homeowners seem interested in looking into the
"western farms" pollution problem.
Like the racial bigot or religious zealot, many
landlubbers rail against what they do not understand or
what threatens them. Liveaboard boaters, many of
whom are well-to-do retirees, do not appreciate being
denigrated by homeowners who do not appreciate our
Looking for battleship photos

ELECTRICA PROBLEMS )
Ask Big Al, the book- available at local book stores.
by Alvin "BigAl" Grodsky
I've had a problem with my boat and I have written
you twice and no answers as yet. Too much for you or
have you never received my mail?
I've received this letter, and never really ever got
any previous letters from you. The Waterfront News
forwards all mail received to me and I do get a few
calls on my service machine. Most problems get
answers as fast as I can and some come a little later as I
try to answer them in order.
Developed a vibration in my boat on my port
engine. Checked plugs, wires, points, etc. All in good
working order, motor supports solid, no looseness as
you have written before. I've noticed my stuffing box
and packing nut has a wiggle or movement where the
shaft goes in. Could that be the problem? I know I'm
,reaching but I'm getting frustrated.
That certainly could be it. The shaft vibrating at
any speed will cause vibration throughout the boat and
,can cause real damage. There are a few places to check
First, check your prop for broken blades or pieces
out of one blade or a bent prop. If all is well, check
cutlass bearing for wear or looseness. Check strut for
alignment or looseness. Look at your universal joint.
Bolts and nuts tight on your flange? And don't forget
your shaft. It may be bent and have to be trued up.
Any good prop shop can handle this. Fort Lauderdale
has a great one.
I have a motor sailer with a two cylinder motor that
has performed great for about 12 years oil changes,
oil filters, etc. all has been done. Only things replaced
was a starter and an exhaust elbow. Just lately, blew
black smoke out of the exhaust at the higher RPM,
then black smoke out of exhaust at lower RPMs.
Engine ran erratic. Mechanic said it could be the
injectors and after 12 years I agreed to replace them.
No improvement, still blowing black smoke. At idle,
runs smokeless and smooth. What do you think it
could be? Hate to open up engine.
Talk about coincidence. I just got done with my
own motor sailer with a smoke problem. The old
formula: blue smoke oil, black smoke fuel,
white smoke water, did not apply to my problem
either. After much checking and soul searching, I
pulled the heat riser and exhaust elbow and lo and
behold, plugged solid with carbon. Cleaned it out, but
cleaned and washed out exhaust lines and my troubles
were over. Back pressure will not let the exhaust clear
out completely and the unburned fuel will cause
smoking and loss of power. My engine runs great now
and I hope this can help you.
My intake hose for my motor and my head started
to leak. Clamps were tight but hose had started to rot
or break. My problem was with the gate valve. It must
have corroded. I couldn't close it and it was a mess
until I plugged the valve. It is a brass fitting and I want
to replace it with something better. What would you
Gate valves should not be used on boats if
possible. You must work them (open and close)
regularly if you want to keep them free. A seacock
with a lever handle is the best. There are different
types but the one I like is a cone tapered type that is
easy to turn and simple to remove and lubricate.
Loosen the end nut and tap free. The next time you
haul the boat for whatever, replace with a seacock and
your problem is solved.

Marine hurricane manual touts precautions
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
MIAMI Hurricane. It's a matter of life or death
- perhaps yours.
"I'm going to grieve for the rest of my life for
people who don't act on our evacuation advice and
die," said Kate Hale after this year's National
Hale, Dade's Director of Emergency Management,
is the person responsible for hurricane preparation
executing an agenda that saves lives.
Hale, her assistants and Managing Editor John
Stokesberry have prepared a Hurricane Manual for
Marine Interests the nation's first addressing marina
operators and boat owners.
It will be mailed free to Dade's registered boat
owners. Others must request copies, and there will be
a small handling and postage fee. Request copies soon.
Before leaving the conference Hale had a collection of
business cards representing requests for the guide -
and the number is growing.
There are 95,000 registered boats between
Deerfield Beach and Key Largo, Hale said, and few
safe hurricane harbors for them.
Hale discounts hurricane flotilla plans in Dade -
already abandoned and Broward, which she deems
Marine agencies will pull vessels from the water
when wind and seas warrant. They won't risk their
lives to rescue careless boaters, the guide warns.
That means the Coast Guard, Florida Marine
Patrol and other police agencies, along with tow boats,
may not be available to aid boats trying to flee up the
Miami River or the New River.
When winds in advance of the hurricane reach 39
miles an hour Dade's bridges will remain in the down
position. This wind represents the minimum tropical
storm condition. Winds of 39 mph can extend 200
miles or more in advance of the hurricane and trail
hundreds of miles behind.
Should evacuation be ordered, bridges will close.
to boat traffic before winds reach 39 mph. Boat
owners should plan early for hurricane emergencies,
practice executing plans and prepare to abandon ship
rather than risk lives.

hurricane preparedness guide. This includes
suggestions for establishing specific plans for marinas
- and employees as well as boats. There are
suggestions for safety of boats in wet and dry storage
as well as racks.
For marina operators as well as individual owners,
the manual points out, there are plans to be made for
after the storm. Should there be damage to a boat or a
marina shore establishment, relationships with
insurance companies and adjusters, as well as
businesses providing repair services, will determine
how quickly repairs are effected and businesses
With a major storm, "normalcy" may not return for
days or weeks. Some boats and businesses may never
Imagine a dormant city, residents without
electricity, water contaminated, food unavailable with
stores closed or shelves bare. Downed trees, debris
and powerlines, with flooding, make streets
impassable. Emergency vehicles are immobilized.
Owners cannot return to their boats.
"Vessels may be upriver, behind your vessel's
mooring location. This may require that you modify
your mooring if you are in the center of a canal or
stream so that other vessels can navigate past you. If
you don't, others may just cut your mooring lines and
let your vessel drift, causing more damage than the
hurricane," the guide suggests.
Boat owners and marina operators should be
aware that much information included in the new guide
results from knowledge garnered after Hurricane
Hugo's impact a year ago.
There was $300 million in damage in inland
Charlotte. North Carolina lost more timber as a result
of Hugo than was destroyed by Mount St. Helen's
eruption, Hale said.
"In South Carolina it is estimated it will take 20
years for the lumber industry to recover," she said.
Potential for havoc and death appears unlimited.
"There are 12,000 non-trailerable boats in Dade
County, and I got a $75,000 grant to prepare this

Marine Council exec resigns
Dick Briggs, long-time executive director of the
Marine Council in Dade has announced his resignation
and plans to pursue opportunities in industry locally.
Marine Council President Ed Swakon said the Marine.
Council will continue without an executive director for
the immediate future. MC has a core of committees
functioning in each area of interest.
The Marine Council also has announced
postponement of the Second Annual Marine Industry
Summit, scheduled for May 22, until early fall. The
1991 event, both productive and informative, was
directed toward both commercial and recreational
Bill Brant, Marine Council vice president, is
chairman of the event, but has not been available for
comment. Brant is affiliated with Post Buckley Schuh
and Jemigan. Designer Skipp Knapp has been named
Topics slated for consideration include: Miami
River (authority, dredging and tunnels), government
regulations, unification of the marine community, and
the future of megayachts in Miami (a megayacht
marina has been proposed).
Commercial cargo and cruise ship representatives
also will have places on the program.
Virginia Key habitat viewed critical
Virginia Key has been designated a Critical
Wildlife Area by the Florida Game and Fresh Water
CWA designation prohibits human disturbance
during designated months. Trespassers can be cited by
Wildlife Officers who protect the precious remnant of
wildlife habitat, according to Mark Robson, non-game
biologist with the commission.
Virginia Key, an important refuge for a variety of
birds, becomes one of 13 CWAs in Florida. The Key,
especially vulnerable because of its urban locale and
possible incursions by residents and tourists, can be
closed from August 1 through May)1 each year.
More than 25 species of birds winter at the Key,
making it a natural attraction, Robson said. Among the
population are peregrine falcons, piping plovers, black
skimmers, least terns, sandpipers, and great blue
herons. Eleven species are listed by Florida as
endangered, threatened or of special interest.
NOAA goes metric
New editions of NOAA's Coast and Geodetic
Survey maps will be metric under the Metric
Conversion of 1975, and the 1988 Omnibus Trade and
Competitiveness. Skippers and navigators are alerted.
This covers 2.5 million square miles of water (11
million square kilometers).
Conversion will be completed in 10 to 15 years,
with new charts issued in logical groups to minimize
shifts between systems.

Nova University's Institute of Marine and Coastal
Studies offers four summer programs: Marine
Chemistry, Coastal Water Resource Impacts, Marine
Ichthyology, and Wetlands Ecology. The 11-week
sessions run July 6-Sept. 18.
Aquaculturalists meet in Orlando
Coastal Heritage, produced by South Carolina's

Kissimmee River dechanneling
The federal government has agreed to underwrite
another $33 million of the cost of restoring the path of
the Kissimmee River, increasing Washington's share
to $184 million, or half the projected total. The work
will restore the meandering route of the Kissimmee
from Central Florida to Lake Okeechobee.
A straight channel dredged by the Corps of
Engineers more than 20 years ago has been an
environmental disaster, washing pollutants to the lake.
The restored meandering channel should cleanse the
river's waters and restore its clean water.

In Delray Beach,-there were 253 turtle nests
counted last year, with no reports of lost hatchlings
due to misorientation that is frequently caused by
John Walker, project manager for the City of
Deray Beach, stated, "Last year we had a good nesting
season with no major problems, and I would expect
that we'll have the same type of season this year."
Florida Power and Light, which threatened not to
replace the sodium vapor bulbs that have reduced turtle
misorientations along Delray's beach over the past
couple of years, has come to terms with the city and
will continue to provide the special bulbs for the city.
It is measures such as protective lighting and
resident cooperation that have made an impact on the
number of hatchlings that make it to the sea safely each
In Boca Raton, Gumbo Limbo Nature Center will
once again offer turtle walks to area residents four
nights a week beginning May 18 and ending July 16.
Reservations for these popular walks will be taken
Gordon Gilbert, director of Gumbo Limbo Nature
Center, described what happens on a turtle walk: "We
meet at the nature center, where staff members show a
film on the sea turtle and lecture about its life history.
While that is going on, our turtle specialists are out
looking for a female sea turtle coming up on the beach.
When one is spotted, we take people directly to the
turtle so they can observe the egg-laying process."
Gilbert related that out of all the turtle walks that
were held last year, there were only two occasions
when there were no turtles nesting for people to see.
Gilbert noted that four people have been hired to
mark and cage nests each day. This can be a busy
process, as over 1,000 turtle nests were found on
Boca Raton's beaches last year.
There are strict regulations regarding relocation of
endangered nests and Boca's turtle specialists have
been instructed to relocate only those nests that would
be washed away because they are located below the
high tide mark. Relocated nests are generally placed up
on the beach near the dune.

Barbara Squillante, the sea turtle specialist
supervisor at Gumbo Limbo, related that 72 hours
after the nests have hatched, the turtle specialists are
allowed to dig up each nest to see what happened to it
and to count the number of eggs that did and didn't
hatch. There are usually a few stragglers found which
hatched but couldn't get out of the nest to make it to the
water. Those that are still alive are collected and
released during the night.

14 Waterfront News May 1992 Diving
lobster season has double vision
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News writer
A recommendation by Florida's Marine Fisheries
Commission suggesting that the annual lobster mini-
season be changed to Wednesday and Thursday, July
29th and 30th, will be one of several proposals
concerning the yearly lobster hunt, sent to the
Governor and Cabinet for their approval on June 2nd.
This would change the state mini-season from the
first Friday and Saturday in August. In recent years
there have been claims made by some marine scientists
that the increase in the number of SCUBA divers
going to the Florida Keys is beginning to cause serious
damage to the precious coral reef that the divers hunt
the lobsters on.
To try and offset this, Lee Schlesinger, spokesman
for the Marine Fisheries Commission, advised that by
changing the mini-season to mid-week the
Commission hopes to take some of the people
-pressure off the coral reef.
Another way the Commission hopes to take the
pressure off is to double the bag limit, from six to

twelve lobsters per day, everywhere except in the
Keys. That and prohibiting night diving for lobsters in
the Keys, Schlesinger feels, will be an incentive for
divers to stay in their home counties to pursue the tasty
crawfish. The Commission also recommended a
complete prohibition of lobstering around bridges and
areas close to the bridges, in an effort to keep the grass
beds and bridges clear of lobster fishermen.
Schlesinger admits that because federal laws will
still permit the lobster mini-season on the first Friday'
and Saturday in August, things will appear confusing
to divers this year. In fact, in the Keys where the
pressure is the greatest, the mini-season.will still be on
the weekend because the reefs that divers go to in the
Keys to get lobsters are in federal waters. So this year
in the Florida Keys, the mini-season remains on the
first Friday and Saturday in August, a weekend.
The state, Schlesinger says, hopes to convince the
federal government to eventually change their mini-
season to mid-week also. Questions are being asked
about enforcement of the federal season in the Keys,
where most of the reefs are beyond state waters.

coast and beyond ten miles on Florida's west coast.
Part of the problem is that after taking lobsters in
federal waters, boats have to travel through state
waters to get back to the docks. Schlesinger feels that
divers won't have a problem as long as they don't
make any stops on the way back in.
Some news editorials have recently suggested that
the Commission recommend a two-year ban on taking
lobsters at all. This ban however, will adversely affect
the economy in the boating and diving industries.
Some veteran divers feel the Commission's
recommendations this year are just a stop-gap measure,
and an attempt to please both sides.
In some respects it would appear to be the
increasingly frequent story of economy versus nature.
As in other areas of Florida, the reduction of habitat
and stress to the environment that the increasing
population is causing to the state's wildlife, is an issue
that won't go away. In this case, the Commission is in
the difficult position of trying to find a fair balance
between growth, economy and people on one side, to
the wild things out there somewhere that don't vote.

on the other side.
Schlesinger reminds us that the recommendations
by the Commission are just that, recommendations. It
will be up to the Governor and the Cabinet to accept or
reject the proposal on June 2nd.
Lauri Homer, a dive shop co-owner in South
Florida, feels if the new proposal becomes law this
year, it will only end up confusing many of the
average divers. The confusion between what are state
waters and what are federal waters will be a sport diver
and law enforcement nightmare. Homer thinks there
will be lots of innocent, unknowing law-breakers. She
feels the offenders are going to poach lobsters anyway,
and it'll be the average guy who gets caught up in the

system. Instead of discouraging the lobster mini-
season, she thinks it will actually increase the volume
of divers in the water and on the reefs since there will
be two mini-seasons this year instead of one.
What years ago, in a different Florida of another
time, was a fun, two-day male rite of passage, has
turned, like many of man's other activities, into a
destructive two-day (this year possibly four-day)
nightmare to the environment. The paradox is that the
destruction is being caused by the lure of the state's
natural beauty, which is the very thing that drew many
of us to Florida in the first place. Which means we are
killing the very thing we love the most ... Florida.

Ocean Expo, a diving exposition or a flea market?
By BRYAN BROOKS
waterfront News columnist
Ocean Expo, the yearly South Florida kickoff to
the summer scuba diving season, was held this March,
in Miami. But many of the area's retail dive stores
were noticeably absent from the yearly exposition. Jim
Payette, Ocean Expo's executive director, said that
was because South Florida's dive shops had been
pressured to boycott his show by some of the major,
dive equipment manufacturers in the diving industry.
The purpose of the boycott, he relates, was to cut
off any selling of dive equipment in the show. In past
years, Ocean Expo had been accused of letting some
retail dive shops sell their scuba gear at giveaway
prices. Attempting to stop dealers from selling at his
show because they sell equipment at lower prices, is
price fixing, Payette says.
Although scuba equipment sales only consist of
about five percent of the total exposition, the intent of
Ocean Expo is to make the public aware of the whole
panorama of the world of scuba diving. Not letting
dealers into Ocean Expo not only hurts the intent of the
show, but is a disservice to the public. This activity on
the part of the manufacturers, Payette says, is
attempting to regulate what should be a free-market
Most of the Ocean Expo's 275 booths were taken
by representatives from the world's different exotic
dive destinations, jewelry, underwater treasure
concessions and environmental organizations, such as
Ocean Watch from Fort Lauderdale and scubanauts
from Jacksonville. But, he says, cutting off scuba
sales not only hurts Ocean Expo but, ultimately hurts
the diving industry itself.
Payette related an example of the pressure the
manufacturers are putting on their dealers. One of Fort
Lauderdale's retail dive stores had paid for their booth
in Ocean Expo, but backed out at the last minute, a
move he feels was due to pressure from the major dive
equipment manufacturers that supply that dive store.
Matt Stout and Lauri Homer, the owners of a retail
dive store in Fort Lauderdale, beg to disagree with
Payette. They admit there were letters sent by the
manufacturers to the retail dive store dealers in the
South Florida area. The letters reminded those dealers
of the contracts that all dealers signed with their
manufacturers. Those are the contracts that allow the
dealers to sell scuba equipment in their stores. But
Stout denies price fixing. He says that the contract
dealers sign with manufacturers doesn't say anything
-about fixing the price of dive equipment. What the
contract does say, however, is that the equipment must
be sold at the particular location where the dive store is
located. The contract dive store owners sign with the
equipment manufacturers prohibits taking scuba gear
to another location, such as Ocean Expo, and
This, Homer admits, is done to protect dealers.
But the reason for the contract is to keep someone
from moving across the street to sell the same
equipment. The manufacturers have gone to great
lengths to make sure that their dealers are giving
proper scuba certification for the safety of the
consumer, and can service the equipment that their
dealers are selling. Ocean Expo's Jim Payette feels that
type of contract allows the manufacturers to regulate
But, Homer says, the key to the whole argument
is that scuba equipment is life-support equipment.

SCUBA EXPO, FROM page 18
Selling life support equipment in a flea market
atmosphere does not, in the long run, serve the best
interest of the diving public. She likes the idea of an
exposition like Ocean Expo, which brings in the public
and introduces them to scuba diving. She also feels
that accessories, such as T-shirts, should be allowed
in such shows. But on the issue of selling diving
hardware in an exposition, both Homer and her co-
owner Stout agree, it shouldn't be allowed.
Stout feels that it would be okay to have the scuba
equipment displayed at Ocean Expo so that the public
could become aware of the new high technology on
the market, but displayed only, not sold. Selling life
support changes the whole aspect of the show, he
Homer asks who is there day after day all year
long to take care of the diver and their life-support
equipment once it is sold? She says that's the whole
purpose of the local dive store retailers. If shows like
Ocean Expo were allowed to put retail dive stores out
of business, who would be there when the diving
public needs help in the proper training and the use of
their life-support gear? The manufacturers constantly
go around the country training technicians that work in
the retail dive stores they are contracted with to
properly repair the gear that the store sells. If the
shops were forced out, who would repair the gear,
and how safe would it be?
Would there be a breakdown in the safety factor
that is built into the system if the strong relationship
between dealer and manufacturer were changed by
shows such as Ocean Expo? Would K-Mart and Sears
be far behind? Historically, in a free market economy
where there is big money there is big business. Has
the diving industry gotten that big?
Payette thinks that the diving equipment that
dealers have sold in Ocean Expo in past years were
only items such as yellowed, silicone dive masks, that
had been on the shelf too long. He thinks the show is
a good place to off-load such equipment at a lower
price. These bargains to the consumer, he feels, do not
hurt the retail dealers.
4840 N. Dixie Hwy., Fort Lauderdale
(One block south of Commercial)
Homer counters that, saying that last year's Ocean
Expo had some dealers selling top flight, life-support
gear in circus, flea market atmosphere. Did the people
coming to the show for a "good deal" know how to
properly use the life-support equipment they purchased
last year? Homer isn't so sure.
Shows such as Ocean Expo are putting the
decades old relationship between the scuba equipment
manufacturer and retail dive store owner to the test.
After World War II, many of the smaller family
businesses in industries, such as food and clothing,
were forced out by larger businesses. The bigger
companies could afford to buy in bulk at a much
cheaper price, and pass those savings on to the
consumer. This cut the throats of many of the smaller
and locally-owned businesses. The smaller businesses
couldn't afford to buy their goods in such bulk, so
they faded into the history of the American free-market
Exposition show producers, such as Jim Payette,
feels that American history has taught that the free
market system ultimately serves the welfare of the
public. But would the public be better served if those
smaller, more personal dive stores were put to that
same free market standard and killed off? Or does the
safety, training and repair factor mean that the diving
industry is different?
Is that special relationship that most of us had with
the instructor/dive shop owner worth keeping?

Waterfront News May 1992
Waterfront restaurant caters to large boating crowd
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News reviewer
By appearance, Runaways on the Bay fits the
order for waterfront setting offering simply prepared
An outdoor patio done up in a laid-back blue and
white motif provides the back drop for this classic
nautical scene. Boats bobbing on the water. Balmy
breezes embellished by the scent of the adjacent Maul
So, it's easy to imagine relaxing to the Caribbean
tunes of the live Calypso band that plays on the
weekends, a drink in your hand and a bowl of
steamed shrimp on the table.
On a recent Monday night visit, the mood was a
little more somber. We had just narrowly missed the
early bird dinner hour, no doubt a crowd pleaser
judging by amount of people leaving the place.
Entrees served during the early bird hour include
rainbow trout Almondine, linguine with white clam
sauce, eggplant Parmesan, roast or charbroiled
chicken, baked ziti and chopped sirloin steak, all
priced at $7.95 and $8.95.
On the main menu, there's poached or broiled-
Norwegian salmon, broiled scallops, roast lamb with
mint jelly, Cajun-style dolphin, teryiaki chicken and
mussels marinara with linguine.
Side dishes are the usual fare: tossed salad, baked
potato, French fries or rice. Prices for the full dinner
range from $8.95 to $13.95, with most in the $12
We started off with Runaways special seafood
chowder, ($2.50) a tomato-based soup laced with
chunks of fish and potatoes. Although it was served
piping hot, my guest thought the soup lacked punch.
The conch chowder, however, was pronounced
plentiful and tasty.
We also found the raspberry vingette dressing that
accompanied a basic lettuce and tomato salad to be a
nice change of pace.
Other dinner selections are traditional: broiled
scallops, swordfish, red snapper, Maine lobster and
steak, ranging from $13.95 to $18.95. (The lobster
was a special priced at $17.95).
Unfortunately, service provided by our waitress
was disappointing, at best. Although the restaurant
was by no means crowded, we waited at least 45

minutes for our order. Coming in on the wake of the
early bird shuffle may have been partially responsible,
but that's really a lame excuse.
Probably what was most unacceptable about the
wait was the fact that no explanation was offered.
The shrimp marina ($13.95) I ordered consisted of
large and obviously fresh shrimp sitting on top a deep
bed of pasta. But I found the sauce, although lightly
spiked with garlic and basil, to be lackluster.
My guest decided that his scallops, ($13.95)
which were baked in a bread crumb and imitation
butter mixture, were also fresh, but the dish offered
nothing beyond the ordinary.
Another guest's blackened dolphin ($10.95) was
well flavored but also seemed a bit dry.
For dessert, one person in our group ordered the
apple crumb cheese cake ($2.50), which turned out to
be wonderfully rich and creamy.
But the second guest in our party never got the
chance to order dessert. That's because the waitress
fled the table before he could finish getting the words
out of his mouth.
The same scenario occurred when we requested a

At Runaways, the scenery is pleasant enough but
the food borders on mediocre. Still, if you're coming
to listen to some music, nurse a couple of drinks and
kick back, Runaways is not a bad choice. Just make
sure you've got the time to spare.
And if you're coming by boat, look for Mile
Marker #54 on the Maule Lake. The adjacent Maule
Lake Marina boosts 175 slips for boats up to 144 feet.
Runaways is open seven days a week, to 11 a.m.

Pesticide control bill canned
Rep. Jack Tobin of Margate, chairman of the
Florida House of Representatives Committee on
Regulatory Reform, pushed through the House
passage of a bill, by 55-51, that would have
prevented local governments and the state's
Department of Natural Resources (DNR) from
controlling pesticide contamination of local and
state waters. After late night caucusing by DNR
director Virginia Wetherell and lobbyists from
county and municipality groups, the state senate
defeated the bill, Senate #1430.
Broward EQCB director Mira Barer opposed
the bill, which would have placed responsibility
for regulating pesticides in the hands of the state
Department of Agriculture and the EPA. She said
the bill would have taken away the county's ability
to protect our drinking water from pesticide
contamination. Virginia Wetherell said the bill
would have taken away the DNR's power to
protect manatees from pesticides,

Chub championship tightens BBC race
Good fishing during the second leg of the
prestigious Bahamas Billfish Championship (BBC) at
Chub Cay Club March 29-April 3, brought some new
faces into the top rankings of the six tournament
series. After Chub, a mere 141 points separates the
first three series leaders.
Stan Walker of Isle of Palms, South Carolina won
the Chub Cay Championship and garnered enough
porits to put him in third place in the Championship
wfth 814 points. Walker, fishing aboard his Slane
Marine restored 53-foot Hatteras, Hatt Box, caught a
346-pound blue marlin during the first day of fishing.
The thirty-four boat fleet at Chub produced a total
of 50 billfish hookups, 24 releases and eight fish
brought to the dock.
The Treasure Cay Championship was scheduled to
take place April 19-24.
The next tournament in the Championship series is
the Boat Harbour Championship at Marsh Harbor in
the Abacos, May 17-22.
