Going for the gold takes a financial toll
Olympic swimmers struggle to earn a living
By JENNIFER B. HEIT
Waterfront News Writer
Before he reaches Barcelona, swimmer Manny
Gutierrez must first satisfy a more basic instinct:
bringing home a decent week's salary.
Gutierrez, who has qualified to swim next month
on the 1992 Panama Olympic Swim Team, spends
much of his day booking reservations for a car rental
dealership while he pursues his Olympic dream.
And he's in debt up to his breaststroke.
"It's been tough," says Gutierrez, 27, who swam
in the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, Calif.
"I don't know how I'm still here. When I get home
I just want to relax, but then I have to get back in the
car and drive back here," he says referring to the pool
at the International Swimming Hall of Fame Aquatic
Complex where he swims six hours a day in
preparation for Barcelona.
Since Gutierrez joined the Fort Lauderdale Swim
Team in 1987, he has crewed on boats, sold tee shirts,
waited tables and taught swimming lessons to children.
Most fans just don't picture Olympic swimmers as
wage slaves, he says.
"Some people think you don't have a problem like
this, but it's not that easy. I can't not have a job and
train only. But I've come this far. I might as well
finish it up."
For Olympic hopefuls duty-bound to a rigorous
training schedule, finding the time to work can be a
hardship. And without a job, swimmers find
themselves dependent on financial sources that are
quickly drying up in a bleak economy.
Many swimmers take on part time jobs to help pay
expenses. Other's are dependent on scholarships, their
parent's generosity and grants, said Fort Lauderdale
Swim Team Coach Jack Nelson, a former Olympian
competitor and Olympic coach.
*ASK BIG AL ..........................7
"You can't work too many hours and be able to
train," he said. "It kills to have to carry both loads."
The Fort Lauderdale Swim Team, reigning national
U.S. champions, helps support some of their full time
swimmers with funding provided by corporations and
Overall, about 200 swimmers belong to the group
with 28 in the national/Olympic range. Since its
inception in 1935, the team, under several different
names, has trained world-class swimmers struggling
to find gold at the end of the rainbow.
Each Olympic hopeful costs the nonprofit
organization about $12,000 a year in living expenses
and travel costs. With corporations cutting back on
sponsorships, the team is on the receiving end of less
and less contributions, said Don Moonjian, president
of Swim Fort Lauderdale, the fund-raising arm of the
Fort Lauderdale Swim Team.
Over the next three years, the swim team hopes to
be able to sponsor about 24 Olympic hopefuls.
"Raising money is a constant uphill battle,"
Moonjian said. "You always seem to be raising it just
in the nick of time."
So far in 1992, the team is facing a $50,000
shortfall in their $100,000 operational budget. Funding
is down by about 25 percent compared to monies
raised during the same period last year.
"We're having the same problems everyone else in
the country is having," Nelson said.
That means the team will eventually rely more on
federal and private grants and the community's
generosity, Moonjian said.
Travel costs to and from competitions cuts a major
chunk out of the budget, along with the costs of
According to Moonjian, there's enough funds to
*DADE ............................ .....8
*LETTERS ............................. 6
get through the summer when most of the major
qualifying competitions are held.
Among the swim team's long list of
accomplishments, in December they scored first place
at the U.S. Open in Minneapolis, Minn., placing the
team as reigning champions.
Olympic hopefuls yearn to train on the team, says
Gutierrez, who swam the 200-meter breastsroke in the
1984 Olympics. "It's like a breaststroke heaven here."
Once a swimmer qualifies for the Olympic games,
his national team helps pay expenses, Nelson said.
Aside from Gutierrez, other Fort Lauderdale Swim
Team swimmers who have qualified for national teams
in the Olympic games include: Joel Thomas, 25, from
California, on the U.S. team; Todd Torres, 22, from
North Carolina, who qualified for the Puerto Rican
team; Eric Despradel, 17, Dominican Republic team;
Peter Souminen, 20, the Finnish team; Montze
Gamariz, 21, Spain's team and Carlos Santander, 17,
The games will take place in Barcelona, Spain,
from July 25 to Aug. 31.
Several other Fort Lauderdale Swim Team
members are also expected to be named to Olympic
teams, officials said.
Recently, the Fort Lauderdale Art Institute held a
fashion show benefit to raise funds for the swim team.
About 250 people attended the benefit at the Guest
Quarters Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. As of this writing,
no estimate on the amount of money raised was
available, Moonjian said.
The team also supports itself by offering
swimming classes to both children and adults.
"It's not a cheap sport," said Laura Hatfield,
spokesperson for the International Swimming Hall of
Fame. "Someone has to pay their expenses."

House torpedoes Boat
The House of Representatives in May voted 339 to
78 to repeal the controversial 18-month old federal
boat "user fee" tax which affects 4.1 million boat
The legislation approved by the House, H.R.
2056, phases-out the recreational boat "user fee" in
three steps. The fee would be repealed on October 1,
1992 for boats 21 ft. or less; on October 1, 1993 for
boats 37 ft. and less, and by September 30, 1994 for
all remaining boats. Rep. Bob Davis (R-MI), the chief
sponsor of the repeal bill, estimates that nearly 70% of
boaters required to pay would be exempt beginning
this October 1st.
The Congress has been awash for months with
mail from constituents objecting to the so-called "user
fee" because none of the money collected projected
at $718 million over a five-year period actually goes
to the Coast Guard or to any programs benefitting
boaters and anglers. Many boaters also objected to
paying because there is no active Coast Guard where
they boat and because the Coast Guard has admitted
that boaters paying the fee could expect no improved

Analysis June 1992 Waterfront News 3
The Compromise-Manatee Protection Plan
- just a beginning
By JOHN ANDERSON
Waterfront News columnist
FORT LAUDERDALE This month I offer
some observations about the compromise manatee
protection/boating safety task force plan which
emerged from the lengthy process which culminated in
a vote by the Broward County Commission on April
My qualifications for entering this minefield of
controversy are based on attending the two public
hearings, studying the plan as amended, minority
report, and my own experience in public life over a
quarter of a century. With regard to the last mentioned
"qualification" I suppose in two decades serving on
committees of the U.S. House of Representatives I
have spent literally thousands of hours in hearings
listening to witnesses testify on an enormously wide-
ranging number of subjects.
How would I rate the hearings held in the County
Governmental Center on April 14 and 28, 1992 on
manatee protection and boating safety? I believe they
demonstrated the validity of that ancient precept of
Jeffersonian democracy: "that government is best
which is closest to the people." In an otherwise cynical
age, particularly where government is involved, it was
a refreshing display of the intensity of concern and
candor which local residents can bring to an issue.
Only tangentially affected by the kind of powerful
nation-wide special interests which so often skew the
results of hearings at the Congressional level the
witnesses seemed genuinely credible.
Sure, some of them from the legal profession and
trade association groups could be dismissed as "hired
guns." But nobody had bought and paid for the little.
"Brownies." To the tune of the Bob Dylan ballad
"Blowin' in the Wind" they expressed their concern for
the manatees in their childish treble.
City officials were there to protect the tourism
which is so much the base of the Fort Lauderdale
In a long and bitter recession one could question
the inflated figures of economic loss presented by
marine interests. A survey by the University of Miami
somehow left me unconvinced that extrapolations
yielding the conclusion of an economic loss of almost
a quarter of a billion dollars and 5,700 jobs were the
inevitable consequence of a 7 mph speed limit on the
Intracoastal. However, given the context of a
prolonged economic slowdown the genuine fears that
the apologists for the University of Miami survey
expressed could not be dismissed as totally self-
serving. Yes, money and economic interests were
involved, but they represented the inevitable interplay
and considerable tension that is always present in a
The conflict between propertied interests and the
more amorphous and less well-defined "public good"
is not something peculiar to the battle between the
protectors of the manatees and the marine interests of
Testimony at the hearings were not textbook
perfect despite the praise I have accorded them.
Although the commissioners were exemplary in their
attendance, their almost total failure to exercise the
right to question any of the witnesses was deplorable.
It could be interpreted in one or more of three ways:'
(1) disinterest (2) lack of sufficient knowledge and
expertise to engage in any cross-examination (3) fear
of stirring an adverse reaction from the large, highly
motivated, but on the whole well-behaved audience.
Whatever the reasons Commissioners tended to
leave me at least with the impression: "our minds are
made up. Don't bother me with any more facts." How
else can you account for their failure to even react
when one witness certainly injected a potentially
explosive issue into the hearings? The publisher of
Waterfront News, John Ziegler, broadly inferred that
one significant culprit in the manatee death toll could be
Florida's powerful agricultural interests. He suggested
some consideration could be given to the fact that
stream pollution due to heavy use of herbicides and
pesticides could account for the increasing mortality

rate. This is an area which fairly cities out for further
Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Pulitzer prize-winning
historian and biographer, recently wrote that: "Politics
is at bottom an educational process." The hearings on
manatee protection and boating safety clearly tended to
show that speed on the ICW kills both people and this
endangered species. A 20 mph is a significant
improvement over the former limit. The sanctioning of
a 7 mph zone between Bahia Mar Marina and the Dania
Beach Boulevard bridge is a further refinement of
existing law which will be helpful. The political
process has contributed to public education because of
the great interest they stirred, and the resulting wide
However, the whole issue of the importance of
maintaining bio-diversity remains a mystery to the
general public. They do not see the real connection
between loss of an endangered species and the future
of human civilization. This subject is scheduled to be
taken up at the forthcoming Earth Summit to be held in
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 3-14. Hopefully public
awareness of the global nature of this particular
environmental problem will be heightened.
The compromise manatee protection plan is still
subject to possible revision in Tallahassee before final
approval. Regardless of the outcome of that decision
Broward County should monitor whatever plan is
adopted very carefully.
We who enjoy the privilege of living in this
beautiful area should be prepared to make some
additional sacrifices if it appears that Cleveland Amory,
then President of the Fund for Animals, was right.
Some years ago he wrote that it isn't enough to just
pity the plight of the manatees. "Do whatever you can
to help them." I very much doubt that we have reached
the limit of the help that we can give by pushing for
even better ways to live in harmony with nature. In a
democracy we must always be pushing for better
answers that demand something more of all of us.

Special to the Waterfront News
Action on the part of employees of the South
Florida Water Management District (SFWMD),
the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and
the Corps of Engineers, Clewiston, recently
saved four adult manatees and one young calf
The five manatees had found their way from
Lake Okeechobee into the L-8 canal which runs
from the east side of the lake to S-5A, a major
SFWMD pumping station located at the northern
tip of the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge
in central-Pami Beach County.
On April 23 DNR, which is responsible for
manatee rescue, responded to the sighting of the
manatees as first reported to DNR by District
personal. The response came just one day before
District workers were set to release water for
irrigation-d7ilands brought on by dry weather.
Releasing the water could have harmed the
manatees which might have gotten caught in the
opening of the gates on the S-5AE and S-5AW
culverts. So water management crews, working
quickly, salvaged some steel grating from another
work site, cut, fitted and installed bar screens to
the culvert gates. By late afternoon on April 24,
the culvert gates were able to be opened for
irrigation deliveries without danger to the
Also responding to the situation, the Corps of
Engineers in Clewiston opened all five gates at
Culvert 10A, which connects the lake with the L
-8 canal. This action allowed the high velocity of
water flowing through the culvert to stabilize,
making it possible for the manatees to swim
safely back into the lake from the L-8 canal.

Tough talk won't cure Miami River curse
Grand Jury solution only partial answer
By RICHARD E. BRIGGS
Special to the Waterfront News
The Miami River is the subject of a recent Dade
County Grand Jury report. Together with the new City
of Miami River Master Plan any river student is
provided a two-volume encyclopedia detailing what is
right, wrong and what should be done about the Miami
As one of Miami's most nettlesome blemishes -
enough to shame any third world country the river
still holds promise of being one of our most appealing
attractions. But, a government dictated "solution" in
the form of an imposed authority to solve its problems
may be no solution at all.
With or without a port authority or harbor master it
will be we Miami River citizens who will ensure that
appropriate measures are taken to improve this unique
5.5 mile waterway.
We face an enormous challenge.
We must attack the fundamental ills of our society
as they are manifested on our river; we must draw
upon the nobler instincts of all the river players; we
must spotlight problems and potentials as we have
never done before while laying the groundwork for
I. Societal Ills. Miami River problems reflect the
tendencies sweeping the world. We can't change the
world through the Miami River, but, we can band
together and let our values be known. We need to
spawn a contagious outrage among more people
regarding smuggling, illegal immigration, theft,
pollution, just plain ugliness and all the rest.
II. Pride. Visualize the diverse river community
brought together and given a dynamite presentation
showing recent river progress and showing how

programs. The object: to imbue a sense of passionate
pride in our river.
III. Focus. Despite a half dozen organizations
worrying about the Miami River, most Dade Countians
are ignorant of it. We are not telling the story of the
river. Each organization must have an active, effective
IV. Greed. River businesses must recognize that
their long term interest is not served by plundering the
resource. Companies displaying good corporate
citizenship should be rewarded.
V. Funds. An aware and prideful community will
demand and support expenditures for sewers, outfalls,
channel maintenance and other high-ticket needs. With
pride come improvements; with improvements come
enhanced property values; with enhanced property
values comes a greater willingness to spend for
VI. Use. Let's encourage all comers to bring to the
river businesses, dwellings, recreational facilities that
will be economically sound, intellectually and
aesthetically stimulating that will excite our minds
and souls. Some day soon we'll see a river alive with
water taxis, fine restaurants, first class marinas,
thriving boat and ship repair yards, teeming festival
market places, an ever-growing and responsible
shipping industry and a system of parks safe, well
maintained and used by people.
VII. Vision. All groups must continue to work on
describing the river as they would like to see it. People
get excited only when they have a vision.
Yes, the Grand Jury has issued its report on the
Miami River. Next, the Miami River Coordinating
Committee will launch studies following up on the
Grand Jury Report. For now, what can we do?
Each of the river committees should start its own
awards program to salute those making contributions
to the river. Call them "River Pride Awards" for
Business Development, Aesthetics, Architecture,
Clean Up, Pollution Abatement, Leadership,
In the meantime, the Miami River community must
establish a self-regulating authority. Lacking the will or
the stomach for that, they must establish a positive
working relationship with those in government
assigned to impose an authority on the river. Better to
help shape an authority than to be blind-sided by a
Finally, hold an annual MRCC Miami River
Conference where each group would report on
progress and challenges an annual pep rally.
The Grand Jury has got us thinking, but the river
community must take the action.

MAB Chairman offers Sonny's side
To the Editor:
Now everyone will understand why I did not
participate in your newspaper's interview. When I first
read the article, I furiously noted the inaccuracies
therein. They went like this: I am not quite 46. I do not
have any tattoos. You got the wrong Indian tribe. I
taught all three of my sons to play the organ. I subdued
the Japanese regarding my automatic antenna matcher.
And I have never worn my gun in front.
I then took a deep breath and, in a mental flash,
realized that you completely forgot... You never even
mentioned... And, my God, the problem with...

about me. Thanks, and keep up the good work.
Frederick 'Sonny' Irons
Riverside Park wronged by Irons expose*
To the Editor:
Sonny Irons is a controversial individual as your
article in the May 1992 edition clearly established.
Unfortunately, in your efforts- to skewer Sonny, you
ended up printing a quote that adds nothing to the
article while creating an erroneous impression within
your readership that has serious negative implications
for Riverside Park and the city of Fort Lauderdale.
Mr. Irons had very little to do with determining the
location of street closures within Riverside Park and all
closures were positioned on the basis of crime and
traffic control considerations only. The street closure
plan, after months of research and study, was
endorsed by a 98 percent vote of all neighborhood
residents in attendance at a heavily advertised and well
attended public meeting and was adopted by the city
commission after two additional public hearings, To
imply that the closures are discriminatory is a
disservice and insult to the City Commission as well as
the residents of Riverside Park irrespective of their race
or economic situation. Alan R. Adaschik

Fear and loathing behind Iron's curtain
To the Editor:
After living in Riverside Park for many years, I
found your article "The Man Behind Irons' Curtain," a
courageous effort to reveal the true character of Sonny
Irons. No matter how knowledgeable Mr. Irons is on
waterfront issues, previous leadership abilities have
proven to be narrow in scope and to have been
administered in an unfair manner.
To the Editor:
Having lived in the Riverside Park area for a
number of years I was unfortunate enough to witness
the arrival of Mr. "Sonny" Irons and Co. At first he
was merely a curiosity.
As he began to venture forth into the neighborhood
and chat with people a clearer picture of his character
began to emerge. He hated the old wood-frame houses
people had lovingly been restoring, calling them
"wooden shacks" that should be destroyed. He hated
the blacks and gays that peopled the area and wished
He continuously talked of guns and their necessity
for personal safety, proudly displaying his personal
weapon to everyone present. His extreme paranoia was
foisted upon residents of the Riverside area at Civic
Association meetings as police officials performed
dog and pony shows at meeting after meeting
displaying locks, mace and a host of other security
The carefree, laid-back spirit that was the core of
Riverside vanished. An entrenched mentality,
dramatically personified by today's barricaded streets,
took hold of the Riverside area.
In retrospect, had your article been published
seven years ago perhaps the unsuspecting naive
citizens of the Riverside area would not have fallen
prey to this venomous character. Perhaps our spirit
would have survived. Perhaps we would still be a

in this manner. He was interested in purchasing the

Dive shop operator reacts
to Ocean Expo column
To the Editor:
Enclosed is my response to [Bryan Brooks']
column regarding Ocean Expo in the May 1992 issue
of Waterfront News. I feel that I must address some of
the statements Mr. Payette made, and in some
instances set the record straight.
After reading Mr. Payette's speculative comments,
that are in my opinion, self serving to him and not the
dive industry, I regret that you and I were unable to
talk prior to publication of the article.
I am outraged at some of the allegations Mr.
Payette made, particularly when he felt that a Ft.
Lauderdale dive store "backed out at the last minute,
due to pressure from the major dive equipment
manufacturers that supply that dive store." I assure
you that no one pressures me into doing anything with
regard to my business. I have plenty more to say about
this issue and it has nothing to do with pressure from
outside influences, but more the survival and
professional operation of a retail dive store.
Manatee coverage critiqued
To the Editor:
I want to compliment you and the Waterfront
News on some good investigative reporting.
The series of articles addressing realistic ways of
solving the manatee problem in your April issue
constitutes a real service to the marine industry and the
family recreational boater. You have raised a number
of appropriate questions previously ignored by the
Manatee Protection/Boating Safety Task Force during

In the May issue of Waterfront News you mention
that Ft. Lauderdale has a "great" prop shop.
I am in need of repair on my bronze 20x20 wheels.
Which prop shop is great?
says it needs it; every two years is the average.
Does my boat need all this work he says I need?
Trust is what this breaks down to. Where do you
dock your boat? On the river? On a canal? At a marina?
Salt water or fresh water makes the difference on the
frequency of cleaning the bottom of a boat.
On New River boats do not need the scraping as often
because of fresh water diluting the salt water intrusion.
A clean bottom is a fast boat and the saving of fuel.
If you feel you are being taken, change your diver.
I am an avid boater. I fish and I cruise and I go on
overnight or weekend trips. My boat is now, I feel, too
small for me and my wife. Sometimes I take another
couple with us and I feel a two stateroom boat is what I
need. What would you recommend as the right boat for
me to buy?
You really put me on a spot. There are many boat
builders who build boats you would enjoy. If you fish
a lot you need a rear or stem cockpit. For cruising you
need a generator, hot water (the usual good things you
have at home), two staterooms or separate sleeping
quarters, a galley to cook at and a stove or microwave.
The only thing you have to decide is the size of the
boat and the amount you wish to spend on the
accessories. Go to any boat show and pick the boat
you need and like.
There are several prop shops advertising in this
issue of Waterfront News. Shop around.
My boat has a painted hull and my diver says I
should clean it every month to keep the bottom and
hardware cleaii. He means shafts and props clean from
growth and shells. I paint the bottom whenever he
I go on trips often with my boat. I'm always
worried about a crack or hole happening on my boat.
Stuffing box leaks or through hull fittings can be coped
with. But a puncture to my hull scares me. What can I
do in such an emergency?
I don't know if you have a wooden boat or a
fiberglass or aluminum boat. But here goes on wooden
boats. There are bags of wood plugs of various sizes -
also hydraulic cement that hardens under water.
Plastic or tarps can be also used to cover the hole or
crack. The pressure of the water will hold the plastic or
tarp against the leak. Towels can be used against the
leak with a board or any flat surface braced against it
from the inside. All seepage or leaks should then be
able to be handled by your bilge pump or pumps. (You
do have at least one working bilge pump?)
You can do all of the above to a fiberglass or
aluminum boat. I have used the hydraulic cement and

Museum receives gift 1
MIAMI The Historical Museum of southern
Florida has received a $50,000 endowment gift in
memory of Teofilo Babun Sr., president of Miami's
Antillean Marine Shipping Corp. The contribution by
Babun's widow, Caridad Babun establishes the
Teofilo Babun Endowment for Maritime Studies at the
Historical Museum. The Babun donation will expand
the museum's role in focusing more attention toward
marine history and serve as a starting point for the
planning of a maritime museum.
The Babun family has made an initial gift of
$25,000 to fund existing efforts of the museum to
support research, collections and preservation having
to do with South Florida's marine heritage. An
additional $25,000 will be donated when the Historical
Association has raised $200,000 toward the creation of
a maritime museum.
to establish endowment for maritime studies
For many years there has been strong interest in a
maritime museum and the Historical Association has
monitored community thinking concerning such a
museum for some time. In 1990 the association
acquired the John C. Harrison Maritime Collection of
boats and motors which traces the history of
recreational boating in South Florida from 1909 to
1950. The Harrison Collection has served as a
"magnet" collection and has already attracted artifactual
and iconographic materials.
Teofilo "Tofi" Babun who died in 1987, was an
ardent Cuban patriot, forced to flee his homeland in
1960 with the coming of the Castro regime. During his
27 years in Miami, he and his family built several
thriving shipping businesses and he became an
influence on the Miami River.
Babun exemplified the American dream of earlier
Dade nautical briefs
immigrant generations. He made his way in a new land
against great odds, with little more than determination
and hard work, yet he was saddened by developments
in Cuba. During the Bay of Pigs, Mr. Babun
purchased and outfitted a gunboat as his personal
contribution to the invasion effort. The boat never left
drydock in Miami. U.S. officials ordered the boat
stripped and the guns destroyed. Throughout his
lifetime he worked to advance the cause of freedom in
George R. Harper, president of the Historical
P association announced the gift at the meeting of the
Marine Industry Committee of the Greater Miami
Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, May 14, 1992.

afternoon reception honoring the Babun family at the
museum on Thursday, May 28th at 1:15 p.m.

Half a century ago Miami's bayfront was not a
park, but a busy seaport with transocean traffic and
Caribbean cargo shipped and trans-shipped.
For many years the Prince (or was it Prinz)
Valdemar was a hulk, a monument on the skyline.
Cruise ships also arrived and sailed from downtown.
The view down Flagler Street opened to the bay
and across sparkling, inviting waters until a library
was built to block the view and somehow improve the
Then a park was to upgrade the waterfront but it
evolved into a no-man's land deserted except by the
homeless and police patrolling a $1-million-an-acre
Now it's back to square one as a desire to
capitalize on this waterfront has led Miami's Carmen
Lunetta to utilize beneficially Ed Ball's old Florida East
Coast Railroad tracks and Bicentennial Park.
The proposal calls for reversion of some land to
docks for cruise ships and visiting naval vessels
affording crews shore leave in Miami. Shops and other
amenities would be added to the proposed complex
north of Bayside between McArthur Causeway and
Port Blvd. The popular road race course of promoter
Ralph Sanchez also would remain.

The property originally was purchased with tax

There's something of a glamorous magnet in
having cruise ships and naval vessels of many
countries close at hand and on display downtown for
boarding by visitors.
Many residents and visitors already consider the
eastbound lanes of McArthur Causeway, with its
magnificent view of cruise ships at Dodge Island and
vessels in the Government Cut channel to be an
established Miami attraction. The new project might
extend this image.
Miami already is the world's largest cruise ship
port, home to two-thirds of the globe's cruise ships for
at least a portion of each year.
A three-pronged task force will study the Miami
River and its many problems, according to Huber
Parsons Jr., chairman of the Miami River Coordinating
Committee. Final reports are due to be returned by the
end of the year. Three groups will study the river with
one concentrating on environmental issues, a second
with a focus on control of river operations, and the

- which may lead to consideration of where dredged
materials would be placed.
The river is host to major port activity as a cargo
transshipment point for The Bahamas and Caribbean as
well as South American countries.
Some river activists propose the need for a river
port authority. At the same time the river is heavily
polluted by inadequate sewage systems and visiting

Treasure salvor Mel Fisher has been sued by the

Fisher's technique that is in question directs the

away sand and silt.
At Coffin's Patch, off Marathon, officials of
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary claim to have
found a stretch of some 100 craters along a one-mile
stretch of bottom. The government contends this
violates a law barring destruction of sanctuary
resources. Although the subsurface blast of water does
not destroy hard coral, some sea grass, sponges and
soft coral have been disturbed.

The suit against Fisher was brought by the

around whether sanctuary preservation concerns or
admiralty law will prevail in this sanctuary area.
Bradenton is bucking Dade in wooing the
attentions of Magnum Marine according to The Miami
Herald's Larry Birger. Magnum, a successful and long-
time Miami boat builder now headed by Katrin
Theodoli, wants to expand and consolidate operations
in a single Dade complex, but fees and regulations may
force a move from the area. In part, the company is
anticipating a patrol boat contract from McDonnell
Douglas that would increase the company's employees
from 100 to 250 or more.
Magnum builds superboats moor yachts in the
$2- to $5-million price range and has been Miami-
based for more than 30 years.
Bradenton packages attractive offerings for boat
builders and years ago lured Chris Craft from
Pompano Beach. Wellcraft and Donzi also called the
Bradenton area home.
The Navy has agreed to stay outside National
Marine Sanctuary waters off the Keys when testing

waters are considered desirable for tests since depths

Almost 150 potential contestants already have
exhibited interest in the third renewal of the

according to Professor Ray McAllister of Florida
Atlantic University. FAU sponsors the events along
with H.A. Perry Foundation.
For the first time the event moves to Fort
Lauderdale from Riviera Beach.
College students representing their institutions as
well as marine scientists representing corporations and
interested groups all compete. Thus far students have

Teams from as far away as California compete and
an international entry may be present in 1993.
Media attention, including a television
documentary of the 1991 races, provides the main
incentive for communities to compete to host the event.
Races are run offshore in relatively shallow water,
although submersibles must have room to maneuver.
Speed is a key to victory, but underwater navigation
and control of the vessels also have proved vital in past
races. Information should soon be available in

Boca stalling on getting county permits for inlet restoration
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
At a recent meeting of the Palm Beach Countywide
Beaches and Shores Council, county environmental
regulatory officials were concerned that the city of
Boca Raton has not yet applied to the county for the
necessary permits to go ahead with restoration of the
Boca Raton Inlet jetties.
Boca Raton City Manager Rick Witker stated, "It's
a matter ofjurisdicion, as to whether or not the county
has jurisdiction over this project or whether we can
deal directly with the state."
Jim Barry, Palm Beach County's Department of
Environmental Resources Management (DERM)
environmental director, stated, "Certainly they (the
city) will have to get a wetlands permit for this project,
and so far we haven't gotten anything from them."
Barry added that there may be a problem if the city
of Boca Raton decides to go ahead with construction
without county approval.

dune gets refurbishing
The City of Boca Raton has bolstered its beach at
Spanish River Park by completing the initial phase of a
$200,000 beach dune revegetation/overwalk project.
The city recently revegetated 120,000 square feet
of Spanish River Park's dune to compensate for
"blowout" areas which have left the beach and the
surrounding area vulnerable to damage should a severe
Chad Danos, a planner with the city's Parks and
Recreation Department, said that fencing and irrigation
will be used to help the new planting material take hold
and to protect it from being trampled upon.
In addition to the revegetation, the project calls for
construction of a 106-footlong dune walkover to
extend from State Road AIA at Spanish River
Boulevard to the beach. The boardwalk will also
include a 100-square-foot gazebo for viewing.
Some environmentalists are claiming, however,
that a gazebo is unnecessary and that it will negatively
impact the beach.

"The Boca Raton Inlet is critical to the flushing of
interior waters of Lake Boca Raton and the interior
canals," said Spadoni.
Spadoni added that it is important to keep the inlet
navigable because it is heavily used by South County
boaters, many of whom would rather navigate Boca
Raton's inlet as opposed to the Boynton Inlet which is

The city will be paying the $250,000 cost of the
project. If approval comes fairly quickly, construction

Spadoni related that the problem with the inlet is
that over the years, the structural components of the
inlet's north and south jetties have been deteriorating.
Plans to save the jetties call for replacing the aging
bolts on the north jetty to hold its structure together.
On the south jetty, the interior boulders which make up
the structure are in good condition. However, the
seaward side of the jetty is composed of bags which
have slipped, causing gaping holes in the structure.
Engineers plan to reinforce the structure with new
boulders which should hold up better over time.
Spadoni stated, "Without these structures, the inlet

Waterfront News writer
The town of Palm Beach is suing Palm Beach
County for ceasing to maintain and operate the sand
transfer plant at the Lake Worth Inlet.
The petition is currently pending in the 15th
Judicial Circuit Court of Palm Beach County. The
town of Palm Beach is seeking injunctive relief which
would require the county to fix the plant and resume its
operation under an agreement that was entered into in
1955. The town is also seeking compensatory damages
for losses to its beaches suffered from the plant being
As of September of 1991, the county has refused
to budget money for any further operation and
maintenance of the plant. The plant has been idle since
the spring of 1990, and has needed some repairs since
being damaged by last year's Halloween storm. A
discharge pipe under the inlet is in need of replacement
at an estimated cost of between $40,000 and

Both the town and the county are pleading poverty
and refuse to replace the discharge pipe.
Attorney John Randolph, who is representing the

say that they are willing to operate the plant if someone
else pays for it is a ludicrous statement; if they're not
willing to fund it then they're not going to operate it."
Under the terms of the agreement signed by the
two parties in 1955, the county agreed to assume full
responsibility for taking over the plant once it was
constructed and operational. Thus, the town of Palm

Department will not honor a request by the city of

Wildlife Service opinion which says cities cannot
renourish their beaches during turtle nesting season.

Angler pushing to have city lake
opened for fishing
WEST PALM BEACH An angler who raises
money for charity by running bass tournaments is
seeking to have Clear Lake permanently opened to the
public for fishing.
Ray Higgins, president of the non-profit 200 Club,
has been running tournaments on the lake, which lies
at Okeechobee Boulevard and Australian Avenue.
Proposal to relax wetland laws
could impact environment
WEST PALM BEACH Under a proposal to
relax restrictions under a two-year-old county wetlands
ordinance, developers would be allowed to fill as
much as 200 acres of isolated wetlands without
without county permission.
County Environmental Resources Management
officials say the changes in the rule are needed to offset
an overburdened staff.
Environmentalists claim, however, that the relaxed
rules will cause additional problems from water runoff
if more wetlands are filled.

set an example, Irons
,presented a lecture on
seawalls at the end of first
MAB meeting under his
leadership in early May. In : '
the process, Irons revealed
what waterfront issues
would be at the top of his
agenda for the citizens'
panel which advises the
City Commission on nros
boating-related matters. S ros
Besides seawalls, Irons wants the MAB to address:

materials (Marty Martindale);
*Mooring systems cleats, bollards, whips, dolphins,
moorings (Bill Aubrey);
*Holding tanks design, optimum sizes, connectors,

*Dredging methods, equipment, costs, fill disposal,
optimum depths (Guy Von Weigand);
*Beach renourishment reasons, methods, costs,
problems (Binni Sweeney);
*Waterway crossings bridges (low, medium and
high level), tunnels (types, costs) boat and auto
traffic impacts (Brian Leary);
*Sewage outfalls history, locations, effect on water
quality (Dennis Nusser);
*Artificial reefs types, locations, costs, impacts (Paul
.Hurricanes -.strengths, wind, wave, flying debris,
and impact on channels, inlets, dock facilities
*Hurricane Flotilla Plan timing, coordination,
origination and destination, problems and

Irons suggested a 15-minute presentation per topic.
Board member Jim McKee was not assigned a subject.
FORT LAUDERDALE A proposal to extend a
No Wake Zone 600 feet north of the Sunrise Bridge on
the Middle River was rejected by the city's Marine
Advisory Board (MAB) in May. The issue was
subsequently tabled till the June 4 MAB meeting in lieu
of further study by board members.
Residents and management of the waterfront East
Point Towers Condominium brought the idea to the
MAB. The condo is located on the Middle River at
1170 North Federal Highway.
"I have received numerous complaints from boat
owners as well as other unit owners regarding the
excessive wakes and noise created by the jet skiers
using the water in front of our dock as a play area,"
wrote East Point manager Ronald Tidwell to the MAB.
"I have personally witnessed several apparently novice
skiers aiming their craft at a boat and, at the last
second, veering off, spraying the boat with their
Tidwell suggested creating a No Wake Zone from
the bridge to a point just north of the George English
Park and boat ramps lagoon inlet. "This will still
allow skiers an area north of the no wake sign to frolic
to their hearts content without damage or danger to
others," he concluded.
A narrow majority of the MAB disagreed with
Tidwell's proposal. Bruce Tyrell of Shading Banks
pointed out that the condo was built and residents
moved in with the knowledge that that part of Middle
River had been a water skiing area long before East

In his lecture on seawalls, Irons contrasted vertical
seawalls with rip- rap designs and their effects on
reverberating boat wakes.
The vertical seawalls that line nearly the entire
length of the city's Riverwalk are caving into New
River, warned Irons. Due to the effects of erosion and
the removal of adjacent sidewalks in 1971 which had
buttressed the seawalls since they were built in the
1920's, miles of concrete are being undermined and
falling towards the channel. Irons urged that preventive
maintenance be begun along Riverwalk.
Point was developed. "This is something they bought
into," observed Tyrell.
"It's not a big problem," stated Fort Lauderdale
Marine Patrol Sargeant Larry Kroeger. A new speed
zone would just push the traffic- further north on the
Middle River, added Kroeger.
Vice Chairman Chappell agreed with the waterfront
residents citing the area as a safety hazard.
"It's like pulling onto the Grand Prix," said
Chappell, urging the MAB to move the No Wake Zone
signs to the lagoon inlet.
MAB panelist Brent Bass concurred with Chappell
saying, "Jet skis brought this to a head."
However, Bass and Chappell were in the minority
as the board voted 8-6 against a new speed zone. The
MAB will revisit the issue after touring the Middle
River area in question in June.
Coast Guard weighs in
In response to a request from the 415,000-member
Boat Owners Association of The United States, Coast
Guard Commandant William Kime has ordered his
agency's Chief Legal Counsel to conduct a full legal
review of the boating public's right to anchor in
The Coast Guard's action follows in the wake of
mounting complaints from boat owners that a number
of municipalities in Florida, New York and California,
as well as the state of Hawaii, have been severely
restricting a boater's right to anchor in federal waters.
Local ordinances which prohibit a boater from
anchoring offshore for no more than 72 hours are
becoming increasingly common and 24-hour
anchoring limits are not unheard of.
Up until now, each of the Coast Guard's 10
districts has taken a different approach in handling the

Derelict vessels: Obstacles or opportunities?
By M.G. Swift. ,
Waterfront News writer ,,
Fisherman Don Ferguson just wants to clean up
the waterways behind his home. Marine archaeologist
Bill Raymond is looking for a home for a maritime
museum he wants to establish. Abandoned derelict
vessels figure in both men's quests.
Ferguson, a champion sportfisherman, lives on a
finger canal near the Dania Cut-Off Canal and the
South Fork of the New River in unincorporated
A beached half-sunken 40-foot houseboat barge
blocks one-third of the south fork channel. Downriver,
another sunken 40-footer lies in the middle of the
channel, marked only by clorox bottle buoys.
These obstacles impede navigation, Ferguson says.
Residents of this waterfront neighborhood off
Griffin Road want the abandoned boats moved.
The alleged owner of the beached houseboat lives
at the end of Ferguson's street but is currently residing
in the county jail.
Jail time is what John Pomeroy could face if.he
fails to move his 65-foot double-masted revenue cutter,
Pan, which sunk and rolled over on its side at a dock
on the North New River canal in Lauderdale Isles.
Bill Raymond, a local marine archaeologist, was in
negotiations with Pomeroy for the boat before it sank.
Raymond and some investors wanted to purchase the
boat, restore it and turn it into the home of a proposed
nautical museum in Fort Lauderdale.
Pomeroy, 34, inherited the sailboat from his late
father. Pan is docked behind the house of former
Hacienda Village Mayor Red Crise's widow, whose
dock was badly damaged when Pomeroy's boat sunk.
Pomeroy was successfully prosecuted by Broward
County and on May 11 Judge Bryan Kay sentenced
him to three months in jail if he didn't raise and remove
his boat by June 1.
An abandoned houseboat beached and half-sunk Photo By VINCENT SCUTELLARO
into the south fork of the New River sits at the
junction of the Dania Cut-Off canal.
Raymond has reluctantly re-entered negotiations
with Pomeroy for Pan.. Water damage will make
restoration more difficult than before the sinking. But,
the marine archaeologist sees an opportunity with Pan.
The beached houseboat which obstructs
Ferguson's passage to the sea probably can't be
restored. The marine unit of the Broward Sheriffs
Office is working on having the houseboat removed
along with a second submerged wreck. In the
meantime, Ferguson put another buoy on the wreck to
warn the Memorial Day Weekend boat traffic.

16 Waterfront News June 1992 Nautical Dining
Local club makes a comeback with pricey Fish Market
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News reviewer
The recently opened Fish Market Restaurant at
Marina Bay has all the makings of a crowd pleaser.
There's great outdoor scenery, an ample supply of
tropical seafood selections and the waterfront ambience
of the recently renovated Marina Bay.
It's just a tad too pricey for the offerings.
However, our four-person party found the service
to be excellent. A leisurely dinner is the norm here
which makes this place a good choice when seeking
an adequate but not spectacular place to dine.
On a Monday evening visit, most tables were
filled, seemingly with people just ending the work day
by relaxing on the restaurant's patio, the last rays of
daylight stretching into darkness.
We loved the endless warm baskets of fresh
sourdough bread, provided with great hospitality by
our generous waitress.
There's more than enough entrees to choose from:
fresh swordfish ($14.95), Gulf shrimp wrapped in
bacon ($12.45), a variety of seafood pastas ranging
from $8.45 to $10.95, designer-style pizzas ($6.75 to

$9.95) and even lemon pepper free range chicken
One guest found his grilled chicken salad ($7.95)
to be a disappointing concoction with too little chicken
and too much greenery.
But I enjoyed the seafood Diablo, ($10.95), a
spicy tomato-based dish thick with shrimp, scallops
and chunks of fish lying on a bed of pasta.
Another guest claimed his sea scallops wrapped in
bacon would have better fared a critique had the dish
been dressed with a nice cream sauce. Sauces were
offered, but their additional cost seemed inappropriate
to this most discriminating guest.
Seafood selections include mako shark ($7.95),
SMississippi catfish ($9.45), grouper $10.95, yellowfin
tuna ($11.95), rainbow trout ($10.95), Atlantic salmon
($13.45) and fresh snapper ($13.45).
A teriyaki swordfish kabob ($11.95) layered with
pineapple chunks was delicious.
For an additional 75 cents, blackened, Cajun or
lemon pepper seasonings can be added to any fish
There's no lack of red meat selections either. The
enterprising menu, which lists entrees like prime rib,
steaks, bar-be-cue ribs and teriyaki free range chicken
with pineapple slices, was designed to accommodate
For dessert, we couldn't resist the house speciality:
a snowball of vanilla ice cream doused with shredded
coconut and topped with a spiral of hot fudge. This is
well worth the calories.
The Fish Market Restaurant is open seven days a
week, 11:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. week nights, and to
10:30 p.m. weekends.

Divers to participate in Operation Reef Clean
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
Divers and snorkelers concerned about preserving
Palm Beach County's reefs will be scouring the reefs
for trash during Operation Reef Clean on June 13.
The reef cleaning day is being organized by the
Ocean Impact Foundation, an organization dedicated to
preserving and rehabilitating endangered sea turtles,
seabirds, and marine mammals.
The reef cleanup in Palm Beach will also coincide
with Broward County's Reef Sweep, and reef cleanup
projects in Martin and Monroe Counties.
Dianne Sauve, director of Ocean Impact, stated,
"We're trying to establish this day as an annual event
so that many different counties will participate in
cleaning our reefs."
Six trash collection sites located at marinas have
been chosen throughout the county. These particular
sites were chosen because of their proximity to dive
boats and charters. Most of the dive shops in the
county will be donating free air fills to those divers
who participate in the cleanup.
Divers will be instructed to keep any unusual items
found and to bring them to Sailfish Marina later that
day, where prizes will be awarded for the most unique
At the conclusion of the day, a party will be held at
Sailfish Marina on Singer Island, beginning at 6:30
p.m. At the party, environmental groups will have
displays set up. The celebration is open to the public
and will also include food, music, arts and crafts, and

Natural and artificial reefs have been targeted for
this year's cleanup. A coordinated group of dive boats
will make observations before the event in order to
determine which areas have been impacted the heaviest
Jennifer Homey, an intern at Palm Beach County's
Department of Environmental Resources Management,
talked about the problems posed by man's commercial
and recreational activities on the water, which threaten
the reefs and sea life.
"Most of the problems come from entanglement in
monofilament fishing lines and from boating
accidents," said Homey. "If we have a live marine
animal that strands, we (groups such as Ocean Impact)
do a rescue operation and send injured animals to a
Homey added that fishing line is also a major cause
of reef destruction.
Volunteers will be needed to help man the trash
depository and recycling centers.

'Boat smart' 1992 theme of Safe Boating Week, June 7-13
National Safe Boating Week, sponsored by the
National Safe Boating Council, Incorporated, is the
annual national event that launches the recreational
boating season in the United States. It not only starts
the traditional boating season, but also introduces a
year-long campaign to provide boaters with more
information about their sports.
Safe Boating Week runs from June 7-13. During
this week, members of the council, including the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary, U.S. Power Squadrons, State
Boating Law Administrators, Army Corps of
Engineers, American Red Cross, and other groups
provide extensive media coverage, local exhibits, and
special programs on safe boating with the theme now
in use by the council, "Boat Smart." The council
supports the grassroots activity of many voluntary
groups with media kits and other pamphlets. About
7,600 Action Manuals were delivered in 1986, but the
number has grown steadily to 22,000 Action Manuals
Using federal financial assistance provided by a
grant program managed by the U.S. Coast Guard, the
council has been able to assume the substantial
responsibility necessary to make Safe Boating Week a
Alcohol and boating equals accidents
Alcohol use has long been associated with boating.
Recreating on our waters is a great way to relax and cut
loose. With the usage of alcohol, the combined effects
of sun, wind, waves, and boat motion tend to sneak up
on you. Boaters become less aware of serious boating
problems such as speed, other boaters, wake, and
threatening changes in the weather. Judgment is
seriously affected. Studies indicate that these combined
conditions affect a boater's reflexes, coordination, and
overall awareness. According to U.S. Coast Guard
statistics, in 1990, alcohol was involved in 50% of
fatalities nationwide. A study of boating fatalities in
four states (California, Maryland, New Jersey and
North Carolina) showed that 51% of fatalities had a
BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) of .04% or greater.
BACs of .1% or more were found in 31% of fatalities.
Here's what happens. Peripheral vision, color
perception, and ability to focus suffer. Coordination
suffers. Judgment suffers.
What can you do? Have a designated driver. Keep
alcohol consumption at a minimal or moderate level.
Don't drink and drive. Remember that, as captain, you

Try playing it safe wear a PFD!
Over 80% of boating fatalities involve people not
wearing personal flotation devices (PFDs), better
known as life jackets; but tragically, 85% of them had
PFDs onboard. While PFDs can increase one's
survival, they work only if used correctly.
The grim fact remains: very few people wear a
PFD, especially when fishing or hunting from a boat.
Excuses vary, but they are all poor ("I can't cast or
paddle with it on," "it's too restrictive," or "it's too
hot"). Considering the special tailoring now available,
PFDs can give the wearer comfort and protection.
Many modem PFDs look like a well-made outdoor
jacket, hunting or fishing vest, or fashionable foul
weather gear. Today's PFDs are attractive and
The main reason for wearing a PFD is clear. It's
an insurance investment. You are protecting your life.
But correct fit and proper adjustment to the person
wearing it are imperative if the safety margin it offers is
to be obtained.
Know how to correctly wear a PFD. Try putting
the device on while in the water and practice swimming
while wearing it. It is essential to do this to become
familiar with its characteristics. Also, remember, a
PFD is no substitute for good swimming ability. A
PFD is merely an aid to buoyancy. It's a tool. Boat
Smart. Wear that PFD ... and wear it properly.
Boat smart, take a safe boating class
The sea can be a mariner's best friend or his worst
enemy. A day on the water with family and friends
should be a time of fun and relaxation. However, the
combined effects of waves, weather, and other boaters
require that a captain and crew must know the boat,

A smart boater will understand this and recognize
the importance of taking a safe boating class to sharpen

system we have for dealing with other boats. Let's use
it the best way we can.
Weather or not to boat?
Weather is a primary concern to boaters. There are
many excellent sources of accurate weather reports.
Local newspapers issue 1- to 3-day reports. Radio and
television broadcasts give both short and long range
forecasts. The National Weather Service broadcasts
weather information continuously.
If you are planning a day in the water, get the latest
forecast, and heed the warnings. Underway, notice if
the wind strengthens. Look for cloud buildup. Bad
weather can occur even with fair forecast, with squalls
and thunderstorms causing a dangerous situation to
those caught off guard.
If foul weather finds you, have everyone don their
PFD (life jacket). Reduce speed and head for the
nearest safe shore or harbor. Head toward the waves at
a slight angle to keep water out of the boat. Seat
passengers low and near the boat's center. If the
engine fails, use a sea anchor to hold the bow upwind
in open water. As the operator, you are responsible for
the boat and passengers.
If you are in a small open boat, beach the boat on
the nearest shore.
Being weather wise is a basic rule of safe boating.
Boat Smart. Watch the weather and use good judgment
when deciding what to do when the weather changes.
The National Safe Boating Council is a forum of
boating safety professionals representing numerous
organizations, governmental agencies, and volunteer
groups who are dedicated to promoting responsible,
safe use of the waters of North America. For more

22 Waterfront News June 1992 Heritage
One of South Florida's fleet: El Presidente
By MAURICE deVERTEUIL
Special to the Waterfront News
Launched at Camden, New Jersey on the last day
of 1939 and christened Innisfail, an ancient poetic
name for Ireland, El Presidente, as she is now known,
is 52 years old, older than most of the people who sail
Despite her advanced years, the ship is in as good
condition as when she was new. The United States
Coast Guard recently attested to her seaworthiness by
granting her a certificate allowing her to carry
passengers for hire.
Her owner, Roger Kolasinski, has no difficulty in
recognizing her when he travels from his home in
Virginia for a weekend of yachting. Unlike her modem
contemporaries, El Presidente, at 90 feet, is very
distinctive: built by Mathis as a family salon yacht she
has retained much of her original appearance, even
though her stack has been streamlined and her stem is
now slightly raked.
Her brightwork gleams, her white paint is perfect
and it is hard to believe that she spent the war years
painted grey, the favorite color of the United States
SNavy, in which she served as patrol boat YP354.
During this time she was armed with heavy machine
guns and armor plate was installed behind the paneling
of her deckhouse. These sheets of steel, though
invisible, are still in place. She served well, and made
it through in one piece.
Acquired by Roger Kolasinski some six years ago,
age and previous owners had not been too kind to the
ship. Some of her yellow pine planking and a few of
her oak frames had to be renewed. However, her teak
deck was in mostly good condition and today about
three-quarters of her structure is original. Hard work
and loving care restored her original stateliness and
The interior can best be described as elegant and
belonging to an earlier period, more like the turn of the
century than 1930s. Her salon is especially delightful -
beautiful, yet comfortable a most pleasant place for
social and business conversations. And indeed, it is
where most of her passengers congregate as she sails
up and down the waterways.
Her main salon features pieces donated by some of
her most famous and important guests, including
ornate bench supports from one of Paris' parks
presented by General Charles de Gaulle.
During her life, El Presidente has had many
distinguished guests on board, including some
E ll -- -- -
American presidents, many heads of state and foreign
dignitaries including Anwar Sadat and Charles de
Gaulle, and many actors and actresses. Framed photos
of several of them give the salon a "homey" feel. She
herself has had a career in the movies, appearing in
some 13, the best known being Harry & Son with Paul
Most modem 90' motor yachts are equipped with
twin rudders and bow thrusters to help them in
docking maneuvers. El Presidente has no such
amenities, yet Denny Ferguson, her captain for the last
six years, states that she is docile and easy to handle
and a great credit to her designer: John Trumpy.
It should, however, be realized that Captain
Ferguson is no stranger to the sea and undoubtedly a
seaman of considerable skill.
Asked how much longer she would last Captain
Ferguson replied, "Well, she's 52 years old now and
pretty well as good as new. As long as she keeps
getting the care and attention we give her, she'll last
and last. Who knows how long?"
The nicest thing about El Presidente is that all of
this ambience and old-fashioned elegance does not just
sit at the dock, but is, rather, out cruising with many
guests who enjoy not only her elegant appearance and
atmosphere, but also lavish buffets and refreshments
in both her main salon and afterdeck.
Well taken care of and pampered, El Presidente is
no inactive lady. Each fall she voyages from Annapolis
to Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale, only to return
north again in spring.
In summer she cruises Chesapeake Bay; in winter,
the Intracoastal Waterway in Florida. There she may be
seen as she takes her passengers on a voyage
reminiscent of the "good old days" of elegance, luxury
She truly is a sight to behold, and once seen and
experienced is not soon forgotten.
Yacht builder gets needed cash
Financially troubled Bertram Yachts has been sold
to Italian investors, Gruppo Varasi, and the financially
troubled builder was to have received an infusion of
several million dollars as working capital, said Bob
Smith, Bertram CEO.
Gianni Varasi, chairman of the buying group,
owns a major Italian yacht yard, is a championship
caliber sailor, and has interests including custom yacht
building and retailing.
Smith said the buyer's knowledge of the industry
was a consideration in choosing Bertram's purchasers,
as was the group's established position in the

200 yachts to sail in the wake of Columbus
America 500 is all set to be the biggest sailing
event commemorating the 500th anniversary of
Christopher Columbus' voyage to the New World.
Over 200 yachts from 20 countries are expected to
participate in the America 500 rally which follows
exactly the route taken by Columbus.
The rally will have a competitive racing division
under CHS rating, while yachts in the cruising division
can choose to compete using the World Cruising
Handicap or to sail non-competitively without a
handicap. The overall winner of the Racing Division
will be awarded the Christopher Columbus
Quincentennial Trophy, which is a silver caravel,
donated by the Quincentennial Commission of the
province of Huelva in Southern Spain, from where
both Columbus and America 500 set sail.
The rally will have two starts, both from the port
of Huelva (Palos) in Southern Spain, approximately
half the boats taking the first start on August 3, 1992,
the date of Columbus' departure and half taking the
second start on October 12, 1992, the date Columbus
landed in the New World. The second start is designed
for those yachts who wish to leave European waters
later in the season. Both fleets will follow identical
routes to Porto Santo, Madeira and the Canary Islands

will also be the same for both fleets.
The port of concentration for both starts will be the
Puerto Sherry marina at El Puerto de Santa Maria in the
Bay of Cadiz. A full program of entertainment has
been arranged, including visits to Expo 92, a sherry
bodega, the School of Equestrian Art in Jerez and the
house where Columbus lived in Santa Maria.
During the America 500 stay in the Canary
Islands, there will be several rallies around the islands
and starting on October 25 in Lanzarote a challenging
Race for the Racing Division with legs to each of the
seven islands, finishing in Las Palmas de Gran
Canaria on November 8.
All 200 yachts will come together for the start of
the transatlantic leg on November 15, 1992 from Las
Palmas de Gran Canaria. Yachts will call at Gomera
for a brief stop before continuing on the 3200 miles to
San Salvador in the Bahamas. After crossing the
finishing line and visiting San Salvador, the fleet will
regroup in George Town on Great Exuma, where they
will be welcomed by hundreds of yachts sailing across
from the United States and where the prize giving will
be held on December 19, 1992.

By PATTI CARR
Special to the Waterfront News
Perfect weather, an abundance of fish and a record
wahoo provided the ingredients for the successful 27th

A total of 600 anglers fishing on 250 boats enjoyed
the festive atmosphere of the Sands Harbor Hotel &
Marina in Pompano Beach.
The crew of Star Trek Six, a 26-foot Sundance,
took Top Overall Boat honors to earn a $10,000 cash
grand prize. Anglers Stanley Kowalski of Lighthouse
Point, John Parilla of Coral Springs and Hank
Thorschmidt of Boca Raton combined their catch for a
total of 193.8 points. The Star Trek Six crew caught a
variety of eligible fish including six kings, two wahoo,
a tuna and a cobia to finish first. Kowalski was also
named Top Captain and Thorschmidt was Top Mate.
The fishing team placed first in the Corral Roundup,
yielding another $4,500.
Bill and Jeremy Huston on Somethin' Fishy along
with David Reilly and Danny Massa posted 155.7
points to finish as second place boat worth $4,000.
The Hustons won $1,000 as the Top Family as well as
the John and Chris Whitmer Memorial Trophy for the
first place father/son fishing team.

father Mike, who is executive director of the
-International Game Fish Association, caught a Rodeo
record 77.2-pound wahoo to place first in the Offshore
Angler Junior Division. He received $1,000 as the top
junior angler, another $1,000 for the Heaviest Wahoo
and $100 for breaking a Rodeo record. -
Last year's top junior angler, Freddie David, 11,
on Frick-n-Frack, scored 35.6 points to finish as
second junior and Christopher Ross, 10, aboard
Rowdy Rebel was third.
Jill Kropomicki, of Boca Raton, received $1,000

Special to the Waterfront News
The South Florida Fishing Classic has announced
the addition of king mackerel as a new species. The
year, the Fishing Classic will offer three $10,000
rewards for the heaviest dolphin, wahoo and king
mackerel caught during the popular two-day
tournament June 27 and June 28.
The Fishing Classic is unique because it is the only
tournament in south Florida to be run from four inlets
Fisherman can choose to fish from the Lake Worth
released. Tom Armillotto aboard the Day-Off, was the
lucky angler who won a trip to New Orleans for
releasing a billfish. Ed Collison on Son of a Fish
released five sailfish and received a trophy from The
Billfish Foundation for the most releases.
Heaviest Fish Awards worth $1,000 each went to
Jerry Moskowitz, Out-of-Control, 54.4-pound king
mackerel; Gordon Logue, Gizmo, 48.5-pound dolphin;
Jack Raleigh, Villain, 30.2-pound tuna, and Barry
Press, White Cap, 42.4-pound cobia.
The Most Unusual Catch went to Hooper Cassidy,
fishing with Patrick Flanigan, who boated a rare
Mediterranean spearfish on Sir Fish-a-Lot, captained
by Clea Miller.,
The story of the tournament, however, surrounds
Walter Richterkessing on Out-of-Control who caught a

Fishing library on line in Pompano
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
A sleeping giant is ready to stretch and make its
mark on Broward County perhaps the world.
Imagine a world class film center, unsurpassed
library and reference source, photographic treasure
trove, and a central focal point for all aspects of fish
and fishing. You can find it in Pompano Beach.
Mike Leech, executive director of the International
Gamefish Association already has more lore and
factual information assembled under IGFA care than
most people suspect and he expects the vaults of
knowledge to continue to grow.
This year, when IGFA moved to new quarters at
1301 E. Atlantic Blvd., Pompano, the-organization
was left with warehouse after warehouse containing
historic materials for which there is no room in the
headquarters building. Thanks to computers, however,
the references are increasingly available for historians
and serious students.
"Within the next five years we'd like to be housed
in a larger facility, maybe 30,000 square feet, and
become an education center, library, museum, and
even expand to a recognized tourist attraction," said
Leech. Today, without publicity or recognition,
IGFA's offices attract tourists, "and probably more
international visitors than we have from our own
Publications that go to some 25,000 members,
including 5,000 international members in 52 countries,

reference material we've already compiled, and make it
more accessible to more people, for reference and
through education programs," Leech said.
"Until about a year ago we had no way to access
our reference materials, but now everything is
computerized and we have a librarian. We also have
seven warehouses, so even now we don't have
everything right at hand."
If a fishing magazine exists anywhere in the world
and IGFA officials know of it, Leech prides himself
that it is in the institution's files. There are already
10,000 books catalogued and additions are
In addition to historic and accumulated reference
materials, IGFA also makes its own contribution to the
archives as the recognized arbiter of record fish catches
throughout the world.
Anglers who believe they have catches of record
dimensions, must submit complete, detailed and
authenticated applications. Photographs must be taken
of the fish, and even a segment of the line on which
the fish was caught must be submitted for testing.
There are some 160 species of fish listed, 86
saltwater and 74 freshwater, and in addition to "all
tackle" qualification there is a fly rod category.
IGFA even maintains Florida records.
If you want to be a champion and hold a world
record, it shouldn't be too difficult on the surface.
Between fresh water and salt water line class and fly
rod records, there are some 225 or more vacant
categories fish for which no one has qualified with
a record catch.

Indeed, among the all-tackle world records, more

In the future, Leech has hopes that a youngster
about to catch the fishing fever will visit IGFA, punch
up questions on a computer, and learn about fishing -
how to do it, where to do it, when to do it, tackle, bait
and how to fish it.
A family will be able to learn what fish can be

Blue Marlin release highlights Palm Beach tournament
By TOM TWYFORD
Special to Waterfront News
WEST PALM BEACH-Singer Island resident
Joshua Arwood fishing with his father, Bud, aboard
their 26' Mako Tide Runner caught and released an
estimated 350 pound blue marlin on 30 lb. stand-up
tackle 15 miles east of Palm Beach during day one of
the West Palm Beach Fishing Club's Annual Small
Boat Tournament. The big blue was tagged with a
Billfish Foundation Nylon Dart tag and earned the 15-
year-old angler the award for the Most Outstanding
Release of the tournament.
A total of ninety-three boats from as far away as
New Port Richey, Florida, fished this year's event
which was headquartered at the Sailfish Marina on
Singer Island. In the Adult Division the heaviest
snapper was caught by Tequesta, FL resident Paul
Albertz who weighed in a 5.65 lb. mutton snapper.
Bob Frevert of Jupiter, FL, edged out Dawn Schneider
of Palm Beach Gardens for the award for Most Bonito
Releases with a total of 14 releases. The Dolphin
category was very competitive in this year's event.
Jupiter angler Virginia Tarpinian fishing aboard the
Zoot took third place with a 31.5 pound fish. The first
place trophy went to angler Powell Christian who
landed a 40.5 pound bull dolphin aboard the Lickem &
Stickem on the final day of fishing. The New Port
Richey angler beat a 34.5 pound fish boated by Perry
Young from Royal Palm Beach who was fishing
aboard the Otter Time (on day one). Jack Albert from
Greenacres took third place honors in the kingfish
category with a 19.05 pound fish. Robert Flowers of
West Palm Beach landed a 28.06 pound king to take
second. Michael Redd's 57.50 pound king was the
largest fish weighed in during the tournament and
claimed the top kingfish award. A 23.8-pound fish
captured by Virginia Tarpinian was good enough for
second place in the wahoo category. Linda Jolley,
fishing on the We Tag 'Em' with her husband John,
successfully landed a 41.0-pound wahoo on the final
day of fishing to take home the top "Hoo' trophy.
The Junior Division featured trophies and tackle
for kids less than 15 years old. Tequesta angler
Shannon Albertz (age 11) won the snapper category
with a 2.4-pound mutton. Shannon and her mother,
Robin Albertz were also the recipients of the Mother-
Daughter Trophy. Jensen Beach resident Mike Mathias
(age 12) won the award for the Second Largest
Snapper with a .60-pound fish. Shawn and his mother,
Stacy Mathias also were honored with the Mother-Son
Trophy. Josh Sacks (age 12 ) fishing with his father
aboard the Filling Station released 3 little tunny on the
first day of fishing to win the Most Bonito Releases
Trophy. Young Chris Molle (age 8) from Palm Beach
Gardens took second place in the Bonito Release
category. John Russo (age 10) landed a 9.59-pound
fish to win the third place award in the dolphins
category. Chris Molle captured second place with a
13.11 pound fish and Luke Hunter (age 14) battled a
20.18-pound bull to the boat to earn the first place
dolphin trophy. Luke also landed a 9.7-pound king to
take third place in the kingfish category. Little Brian
Fowler (age 6) won second place in the kingfish
category and Chris Molle took first with a 12.48-
pound king fishing aboard the Sea Witch. The trophy
for Most Billfish Releases went to Ryan Weigt from
Hobe Sound fishing aboard the Nick's Nite Out. Ryan
was the only Junior angler to do'batile with a sailfish.
Little Blair Appleton (age 4) of West Palm Beach was
this year's youngest tournament angler.
Many small boaters opted to fish in the protected
waters of the Intracoastal Waterway and target inshore
species of fish. The Inshore Division has grown in
popularity each year since it was first introduced. The
husband-wife team of Glenn and Cherie Blount swept
the category for Most Ladyfish Releases with four and
five released fish respectively. Glenn Blount and his
two daughters, Whitney (age 7) and Lindsey (age 4),
also won the Father-Daughter(s) Trophy.
The next year's Small Boat Tournament is
scheduled for April 24th and 25th, 1993 and will be
headquartered at the Sailfish Marina on Singer Island.

28 Waterfront News June 1992 Commi e:r
Couple could clean up if first automatic boat wash is approved
By JEFFERY G. HARRELL
Waterfront News writer
It had been a typical Marine Advisory Board
snoozer over whether or not to implement a "No
Wake" zone on the north side of the Sunrise Boulevard
New River. And with the "I's" giving way. to
"table the discussion" until the next meeting and
additional facts and figures, all eyes slowly began to
roll into a "hurry up and draw this evening to a close"
Then, suddenly, the mere mention of the "Marine
Magic Automatic Boat Wash" caused all eyes in the
room to get big again.
"We were referred to you by the city Dockmaster,"
Jodi Lewis told the MAB members.
"We need your approval before we can open up an
automatic boat wash. I believe it would be the first of
its kind anywhere."
An automatic boat wash would be a first in
Broward County, anyway.
Designed to accommodate a maximum boat width
of 14 feet with a "limitless" height and length capacity,
boaters would guide their boats into a hydraulic
systempowered by one 7.5 horsepower electric motor
coupled with a 13-gallon per minute hydraulic pump
complete with polyproplylene brushes resting on
"The biggest task is to design this net perfectly,"
says Bruce Lewis, Jodi's husband and the machine's
chief designer, of the netted "catch basin that
wouldtotally encompass the brush area, below and up
through the waterline to capture and confine algae,
grass growth, light barnacle formation or paint
Still in the designing stage, the net would be
attached on both sides of the machine by a "spindle
-type" roller which would allow for a rolling system of
alternating net-halves in and out of the water. The net
would be cleaned sectionally on a daily basis by hand
brush over a bin to collect growth particles, while the
bin's contents would be disposed into properly
The idea, although a first, is not original to Jodi or
Bruce Lewis, however. Bruce Lewis says the first
engineered automatic boat wash machine wasi
conceived more than 15 years ago by a Leonard,
Michigan, man and tested successfully on both
freshwater lakes in Michigan and on Florida saltwater.
"But the manufacturer quit on it 15 years ago,"

Jodi Lewis says. "There was no way to keep the
machine smooth, so it died."
In 1985, the Toledo, Ohio, couple picked up on
the concept and began "brainstorming and researching"
the project through the Library of Congress in
Washington, D.C. They also "found" the original
manufacturer, who assisted in modifying the original
diagrams, and Bruce Lewis began developing the net
designed to catch falling debris removed from boat-
bottoms by the machine's rotating brushes.
"Now we're re-introducing it by marketing it
here," says Jodi Lewis, adding that Fort Lauderdale
offers not only an ocean and an Intracoastal Waterway,
but also a myriad of canals branching off the
Intracoastal and New River that make the city a prime
site for a boat wash. "Our plan is to sell memberships
where members would pay $1 per (boat) foot and non-
members would pay $2 per foot. We also think we can
help the city by offering service to police boats and
First, however, the Lewis's must convince MAB
members, city officials and environmental agencies that
their product will not wash any adverse effects off the
bottoms of boats into a marine environment that
becomes more fragile with each passing day. Jodi
Lewis says, "No hydraulic fluids are being used; rather
we're using vegetable oil that is water friendly to
lubricate the hydraulic lifts. No soaps. No detergents.
Just brushes. It's the same as a scuba diver who dives
under a boat and cleans off the bottom with a brush."
But it's that context that slaps the Marine
Automatic Boat Wash right in the face with a
fundamental dilemma that attaches itself to any marine
community surrounded by saltwater: barnacles. City
Dockmaster Hilton Brown estimates "at least 80
percent" of the boats in the area experience the
saltwater shellfish that attaches itself to the bottom of
rocks, boats and ships. "Put your boat in saltwalter,"
he says, "and you're going to get barnacles within 30
And most Broward County boat owners know
firsthand that cleaning barnacles from the bottom of a
boat involves a lot more than donning scuba gear and
heading underneath armed with little more than a
brush. A common cleaner for barnacles used by
maintenance personnel at any marina with rack-storage
facilities is 3M Scrubber. Barnacles can also be sanded
off, or sand-blasted from the bottom with a pressure
Yet, says Jodi Lewis, although the-Marine Magic
Automatic Boat Wash is designed to wash boats
MAO&SION IMIAIBE BllSIIVIES INC.
without bottom paint that don't accumulate bottom
growth, boats with bottom paint treated with the same
brush pressure as "the average scuba diver," and to
remove light barnacle buildup, the plan is to steer away
from cleaning any boats with heavy-barnacled bottom
surfaces. "We won't do anything to harm the
brushes," she says.
"So who's boats are they going to clean?" asks
"Boats always have barnacles here because
anytime you have a boat in saltwater, you're going to
have barnacles building up on the bottom. But what
they've got is a freshwater lake setup for the ocean.
You don't get barnacles from freshwater; you only get
them in saltwalter. They're in the wrong place. If they
were up on Lake Michigan or a freshwater lake
somewhere where all they had to worry about was
cleaning wet grass or debris off the bottom, then they
would be alright. But I don't think they're going to be
Brown, who has been instrumental in guiding the
newly-transplanted Toledo couple through the
bureaucracy that ties the local MAB, the city and the
state's Department of Environmental Regulation, said
an automatic boat wash is a "great idea" before hearing
of Lewis's plans to turn away boats with heavy
barnacle-buildup on the bottom. "That's gonna make it
tough," he says. "If they don't upgrade their facility to
handle boats along the New River and saltwater, then,
no way. Because if you stay in this water, you're
going to get barnacles."
Becker says the couple should research their idea
in reference to a saltwater community before diving
head first into a business venture. "They should ask a
diver about the different paint surfaces on boats here.
If a boat has a soft paint surface, you can clean with a
slougher and the barnacles will slough off with it.
Hard paint is a little different because it's a slicker
surface. My advice is for them to go around and look
at boat bottoms here, first, before they put their money
Jodi Lewis says $30,000 in "seed money" has
already been sunk into the venture and that "a
minimum of $25,000" will be needed to launch each
boat wash site. She adds that the business plan
projects a total of 10 Marine Magic Automatic Boat
Wash sites in Broward County, including sites at the
15th Street boat ramp, the George English Park boat
ramp, and the Fire Station by Bahia Mar.

BOAT WASH, FROM page 28
Supervisor Jamie Hart in a letter to Jodie Lewis dated
April 10, "the sites ... are not worth exploring at this
time. The City's boat launching facilities are overtaxed
and there is not sufficient room. The location behind
the fire station on State Road A-1-A is currently not
available. The Fire Department is planning to
restructure the existing dock facility in conjunction
with the Beach Redevelopment plans which could take
several years to complete."
Hart's letter notwithstanding, Jodi Lewis says,
"We've got a location." And, contingent on approval
by the state Department of Environmental Regulation,
the Broward County and Fort Lauderdale City
commissions, and the MAB, look no further than the
Chinnock Marina for the first Marine Magic Automatic
Boat Wash location.

nothing more than trying to clean and maintain boat
bottoms with toxic paint on them. Instead of nipping
the problem, they're regulating the people who are
working. If you ask me, licensing is way out of
Of course, the Marine Advisory Board's eyes are
opened to see regulation a little differently.
"You need our approval to operate this on any
public waters in the city," MABChairman Sonny Irons
told Jodi and Bruce Lewis at the meeting.
"We have a lot of questions to ask the
environmental agency," MAB member Hugh Chappell
added, before the MAB voted unanimously to
"approve the concept."
But, perhaps the most telling comment came from
smiling MAB member, Dennis Nusser, when he
asked: "Are you gonna do my boat first?"
Waterfronts draw frequent flyers
There's something about waterfront and
watersports. A recent study of free flights on airlines
(frequent flyer programs) reveals a pattern of
destinations interesting to marine-oriented groups and
individuals. The most frequently selected destinations
are: Honolulu, Los Angeles, Orlando, San Francisco,
Seattle, Maui, Las Vegas, Denver and Phoenix, with
flights originating in Los Angeles, New York City,
Chicago and Boston. Note that only Denver and
Phoenix and not water-oriented destinations.
These results parallel vacation destination studies
that reveal a similar preference for water-oriented cities
and/or cruises as favorite holidays.
Sailing, boating, swimming, fishing, diving,
sunning and other seaside activities apparently have
greater attractions than many travel authorities have
realized especially when the destination is invitingly

Notes from the North Fork
MORE LETTERS, FROM page 6
To the Editor:
Until now, it was unclear why Mr. Irons, a man
with a bully temperament, would donate numerous
volunteer hours to civic matters. Then, in April of
1992, the mystery was solved. The Riverside Park
Residents' Association (RPRA) requested the city to
give Mr. Irons a valuable piece of waterfront property
on the New River for free.
Mr. Irons could write another book, "How to
Attain Real Estate With No Investment" or "The
Professional Squatters Guide." The formula would go
something like this:
1. Move on to a piece of deserted, unkempt
property adjacent to a municipally-held land in
hopes of not being detected. However, if one
is detected by "real" owner, offer to maintain the
site in lieu of rent.
2. Never complete construction on home,
striving to avoid Certificate of Occupancy by
maintaining tarpaper exterior, thereby avoiding
being taxed on dwelling.
3. Make adjacent city property your official
driveway only access to uncompleted home
and place for mailbox.
4. Landscape adjacent city property with
endangered trees and plants. Dump mounds of
dirt, concrete, and rocks so residents can no
longer reach river.
5. Threaten persistent residents with gun.
6. Become President of Civic Association, a time-
consuming job which most people who work
are willing to let you do.
7. Enlist other waterfront property owners to
join your civic association in return for
barricading off the poor sections of your
community (the paybacks come later).
8. Intimidate dissenters with verbal threats,
code violations, and private police
9. Become buddies with elected city officials
in order to obtain appointment to a seat on an
influential advisory board.
10. Separate yourself from office holding in
hand-picked civic association, to avoid later
charges of conflict of interest.
11. Have civic association file application to
vacate city property to adjoining property
12. Sell expanded tract of land for considerable
13. Move to next unsuspecting municipality.
I respectively request that my name be withheld
due to fear of retaliation in the form of code violation
terrorism and possible police harassment.
Name withheld upon request
To the Editor:
Recently I read the May '92 issue of the
Waterfront News regarding Mr. Irons. You are to be
congratulated on a straightforward and absolutely
correct assessment of this person.
In response I have the following questions:
1. What proof of his claims of being a Naval
architect has he presented? Does he hold a degree in
this profession? If so, from what university is it from?
2. Mr. Irons claims Indian heritage and recently
gave very unsound advice to his friend Mayor Naugle
regarding erecting a 27-story tall statue of C.
Columbus which has to be offensive to any Indian
who is in touch with his/her roots. If he is so
knowledgeable about Indian traditions and sensibilities
where did he acquire this wisdom? What reservation
was he raised on what traditional Native American
religion did he grow up with? The Crow reservations
are located in Montana on the U.S.-Canadian border,
not in Pennsyslvania, and one does not inherit such
wisdom genetically. It is a learned experience.
3. What is he paranoid about which requires the
use of and display of guns and walkie-talkies? Usually
such a use and display of these items on a regular basis
indicates fear. Somehow it looks childish to see an
adult male mowing the grass on the county swale
[equipped] with these items, acting out what looks like
war games and calling his neighborhood a war zone.
Treating the neighborhood like a riot zone or
accusing anyone who disagrees with him as evil, drug-
dealing riff-raff is patently absurd. Riverside has been
in existence since 1928 and to date has not been blown
off the face of the map.
4. Mr. Irons has made no attempt to deny the fact
that he dislikes African-Americans or gays. Has he
lost sight of his status as an ethnic minority if he is
indeed an Indian? That makes him one of the
"brothers" and to be against the minorities is to be
against himself and that is twisted at best and
schizophrenic at worst.
5. Has Mr. Irons ever considered the fact that a
master-plan which brings embarrassment to an entire
city, wastes tax monies, destroys neighborhood
cohesion, causes anger and distrust and resentment has
to be flawed and the flaw reflects the personality and
character flaws of its designer? Ego, I suspect, would
not permit such a mature observation.
6. The description of him (self-proclaimed) as an
abusive child who struck his own mother, tormented
his siblings, was in conflict with his Jehovah Witness
training the use of guns to intimidate people in order
to get his way follows a typical pattern found among
many inmates in prisons all over this country.
Please withhold my name. I live in Riverside and
fear retribution from Mr. Irons, the Riverside rent-a-
cops employed by the neighborhood association and
Ironites in City Hall from the Mayor's office on down.
- another phony crisis?
To the Editor:
I wonder if any of your readers would care to
swim or water ski close to a two thousand pound
mammal who just burped several litres of methane gas
and excreted Lord knows how much E Coli into the
water? Yet that is just the situation being created by the
DNR and their host of environmentalist zealots in their
quest for senseless proliferation of the manatee, a
mammal which, many forget, isn't even native to our
First, it was the billion dollar snail darter fiasco in
Tennessee; now it's sea turtles and manatees in
Florida. So long as the taxpayers foot the bills, these
bureaucrats will go merrily along feathering their nest
by creating a continuous chain of phony environmental
crises. At some point in time I would hope that saner
thinking would prevail, and that policies would be
adopted that acknowledge the rights of people as well
as animals to enjoy ourland and water resources.
Howard L. McFann
North Palm Beach
DNR uses 'disinformation' spin control
To the Editor:
Attached is a response letter from the Florida
Department of Natural Resources for a letter written to
you by Mr. Howard L. McFann. I would like to
request that this response be published if and when Mr.
McFann's letter is published in the Waterfront News.
It is important for the public to receive factual
information concerning the endangered manatee and
what is being done for its protection in Florida.
Dear Mr. McFann:
The copy of your letter to the editor of the
Waterfront News which was sent to Pamela McVety
has been forwarded to my office. For the sake of the
manatee, I must correct several misconceptions you
have concerning this endangered species.
The statement was made "... senseless proliferation
of the manatee, a mammal which many forget, isn't
even native to our Florida waters." In reality, manatees
are native to Florida waters, with fossil records dating
back over 40 million years. The misconception that
manatees were brought into Florida may stem from the
relocation of several manatees within the state in an
attempt to naturally clear canals of hyacinths. This
experiment, which was done many years ago, proved
unsuccessful and was discontinued.
The second statement, "So long as the taxpayers
foot the bills, these bureaucrats will go merrily along
feathering their nests..." is inaccurate. Manatee
protection efforts are funded solely through the Save
the Manatee Trust Fund. This fund receives absolutely
no general revenue dollars but generates revenue
through the sale of manatee license plates, donations
and $1.50 from each vessel registration.
The majority of the problems that the manatee is
facing today are as a result of man's misuse of its
habitats, and is but one indicator of our need to look
further into how we are hurting Florida's aquatic
ecosystems. The truth is that nearly every action being
considered for manatee protection today is needed, or
will be needed soon even if there were no manatees in
Florida. Just look at the quality of the boating
Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board Chairman
Frederick "Sonny" Irons
Public broadcasting faces
To the Editor:
The same forces in Congress that recently attacked
the National Endowment for the Arts have found a
new target in Public Broadcasting. Apparently
encouraged by their success against the NEA, and with
some encouragement from other usually friendly
senators, they have sought to amend Senate Bill 1504.
That bill reauthorizes funding for Public Broadcasting
for the three years beginning in October 1993.
Ruth Jacobs, Chairperson of the WLRN-TV/FM
Community Advisory Board, and I visited with aides
to Senators Graham and Mack in Washington on
March 2nd and 3rd. We are convinced that the
concerns they raised were more perceived than real,
and we asked that they deal with those concerns in
committee hearings during the next session, rather than
now on the floor of the Senate.
Amendments introduced at this time would force
the bill back into the Senate Committee and the House
of Representatives where it has already passed. The
result could be delayed funding for WLRN-TV and
WLRN-FM as authorizations and appropriation bills
compete for attention in the Congress.
Senators Graham and Mack need to know now that
you feel it is important for Senate Bill 1504 to be
passed now, without amendments.
By the time you read t ths there may have been
further action in Congress, but your call will give ot.,
senators a chance, either to take credit for their support,
or to explain their reasons for failing to support Public
Broadcasting on this critical vote.
Phone numbers and the names of the aides to call
are: Senator Bob Graham, Aide Jeremy Bronson:

Reilly: (202) 224-5374.Don
experience in Broward County today. The true solution
to saving manatees and providing for a quality boating
experience lies in our ability to manage man's uses of
our aquatic ecosystems in balance with nature's needs.
Fortunately, these kinds of major conflicts can be
addressed through the implementation of the manatee
recovery plan and the continued refinement and
implementation of our growth management laws in the
form of local government comprehensive plans.
Thank you for allowing me to provide you with
information on this issue. If I can offer any additional
information, please call (904) 922-4330.
