Divers search for shipwreck
Salvors will begin recovery of artifacts from a
Spanish vessel dating back to the age of discovery
S1500s -this summer.
Divers from the Mel Fisher Heritage Society
also will map the entire site of the wreck. The vessel,
lying about -25 miles off the coast of Grand
Bahama, was discovered in the fall. Part of a
Spanish conquistador's helmet, pottery shards,
musket balls and cannon balls already have been
recovered from the site and served to date the find.
A cannon is believed to be the oldest recovered in
Great Hlarbour open again
Great Harbour Cay also is in the Bahamas
part of the Berry Islands chain en route to Nassau
for many skippers.
This is an inviting and delightful port of call for
boaters who enjoy the Family Islands in preference
to Nassau. Once a prime luxury resort with its own
18-hole golf course and an ocean beach just a short
walk from the marina, Great Harbour also boasted a
clubhouse with gourmet dining, airstrip all
amenities a cruising crew hopes for.
Now the 80-slip marina again is open and
staffed, along with full services, ship's store, dining,
and a convenience store at the dock. The golf
course, however, has become a low-maintenance,
abbreviated 9-hole offering that is free to guests.
ISome skippers may enjoy a break from the
voyage and a visit to Great Harbour; others will

"There are no billfish on a full moon in the
Bahamas" was heard from many of the participants
of the Green Turtle Yacht Club Fishing
Tournament until two of the boats brought in blue
marlin weighing over 300 pounds on the last day
(full moon) of fishing. The contest ran May 13-16.
Larry Transue of Cocoa Beach, Florida fished
aboard the Rob Wartell's Second Chance and was
able to land a 380 pound blue marlin in less than
an hour. However, he did not begin celebrating
because Don Marino (from Cleveland, Ohio) on the
Nar-a had not only boated a blue, but a white
marlin earlier in the day. When Don's blue tipped
the scales at 322 pounds and his white was 50
pounds, Larry realized he had won by 8 pounds.
Unfortunately, Larry and the rest of the anglers did
not win the 1992 Phoenix 29' worth over $130,000,
because they did not boat a marlin exceeding 563
Third place was taken by a 68-pound white
marlin also caught on the final day of fishing by
Green Turtle fishing tourney results

Wanted: competitors seeking
a fresh challenge
By ANDREW MUNTZ
Special to the Waterfront News
EVERETT, WA Competitors will have a
chance to make boat racing history when the
International Electric Boat Regatta is held this
August near Sultan, Washington. An attempt at a
world straightaway speed record and events aimed
at testing the limits of both battery and solar
technology will highlight two weekends of racing
believed to be the first totally dedicated to the
running of boats powered by electricity. To
heighten the challenge, $5,000 prizes await the
winners of two of the four events.
Snohomish County Public Utility District, which
provides electric service to customers in a portion
of Western Washington north of Seattle, has
scheduled a marathon race, a closed-course race, an
opportunity for straightaway record attempts, and a
race for solar-powered boats on the weekends of
August 8 and 9, and 15 and 16.,The event will be
held on Spada Lake, a water and power supply
reservoir located in the foothills of the Cascades, to
promote the recreation area and to provide a
showcase for the development of battery and solar
"We held a much smaller electric boat race last
year when we opened the recreation sites at Spada
Lake," explained Charles Earl, general manager for
the utility. "We had only five entries, but everyone
who competed had a great time. We realized that we
had a unique idea that could stimulate interest in
battery and solar technology, so we decided to
expand the regatta to four different races and offer
some prize money to attract more interest."
The racing will get underway on Saturday,
August 8 with attempts to establish a new world
straightaway speed record for electric-powered
boats. Competitors will be looking to exceed the
current record of 50.83 miles per hour, which was
set in November, 1989 by Great Briain 's 72-year-
old Fiona Countess of Arran.
Those attempting to break the speed record will
be required to drive their electric-powered boat
through a speed trap one-kilometer in length, then
return through the same trap going in the opposite
direction. The average of the two runs will be used
to establish the boat's speed.
"The boat racers we've talked to feel the world
record is within reach," Earl said. "In fact, the
president of the American Power Boat Association
issued a challenge to the membership of that
organization more than a year ago to beat the
Countess of Arran's record. So far, nobody has
done it, but, if somebody can come up with a hull
that can support the weight of enough batteries yet
still be light enough to go fast, we'll probably see
that world record broken on Spada Lake this
The racing will continue on Sunday, August 9
with the running of the closed-course race, which
Earl describes as the regatta's least formal event.
The competitors will race in four-lap heats around a
one-kilometer course using no more than 300
pounds of lead-acid batteries.
"We expect the closed-course race to be a fun
event," he said. "I imagine we'll have a wide

Racing will resume the following Saturday,
August 15, with the running of a dawn to dusk
marathon that will test the limits of battery capacity,
the efficiency of motors and power supplies, as well
as the ability to conserve energy. Contestants will
begin from a "LeMans-type" start to pass check
points on a 14,000-meter course for a period of 12
hours, using no more than 200 pounds of lead-acid
batteries. The competitor passing the most
checkpoints during the day of racing will win
"We expect this event to appeal to engineering
students and to basement inventors and backyard
tinkerers," Earl explained. "We're anxious to see
what solutions competitors will come up with to
solve the problem of moving a boat the fastest over
the farthest distance but with the most conservative
use of battery power. Innovations in motor designs,
power supplies, and batteries will speed the day
when electric-powered vehicles become practical."

Regatta will feature a race of solar-powered boats
on the same course used by the marathon
contestants. Only ambient solar energy collected
with solar panels covering 40 square feet or less can
be used to power the boats. A $5,000 prize will be'
awarded to the entrant passing the most check
points during eight hours of racing.
"Like the marathon race, this event will attract
the kind of technicians who love to solve a fairly
sophisticated problem," Earl explained. "For
instance, because the course is triangular, the boat
designers are going to have to figure out a way for
the solar panels to be directed at the sun as the boat
goes in three directions."

Waterfront News July 1992
Nameless letter writers cast shadow on paper's credibility
To the Editor:
Regarding two letters printed on Page 30
(Sonny Irons) June issue 1992:
The two people who wrote those two letters
about Sonny Irons presuming to understand all of
his motives and are assumed to be all knowing
about his actions, really show their motives by
withholding their names and then trying to lay that
event on Irons. Who would really believe that
nonsense? From what I've heard, Mr. Irons doesn't
really care what they (or anyone else) think. Talk
about ego, why do they think that they are so
important that he (Irons) would care about what
they would say?
I don't know Sonny Irons personally. I do know
what a public publication is suppose [sic] to be all
about. If this is the kind of journalism we are to
expect from you, then I can see why Mr. Irons
doesn't want to talk to you.
That is what they did in Nazi Germany in the
40's, accusations, unsubstantiated rumor, in an
attempt to discredit a person, based on rumor,
innuendo, opinion, not stating any real facts, not
giving a person any opportunity to face his accuser.
This (no name letter) is just not the American way.
In my opinion, your publication is just so much
the less for printing or advocating this type of
format. You have belittled yourselves by publishing
these unsigned letters.
If they don't like what Mr. Irons is doing, then
let them (the letter writers) get off their butts, get
involved, change the system. It doesn't take any
commitment or effort to write an unsigned letter.
Neither letter had anything positive in them. Both
authors were just bitching about Sonny Irons. They
are however entitled to their opinions. That's one of
the things that is great about this country. The
question in my mind is why your paper would
advocate and lend creditability [sic] to this kind of
situation. Makes a person wonder what your real
I did, however, like the two-part letter (letters)
on the manatee situation [on the same page as the
George D. Smith
To the Editor:
Loved those Letters to the Editor in June's
Waterfront News. Except for the advertising
submitted, it could have been called the Sonny
Iron's Edition, and in the 1920's might have been
called muckraking. They say a committee can't
write a letter, but it looks like a very small
committee can write several letters as long as they
sign them "Name Withheld."
When I bought property in Riverside in 1986, I
couldn't believe how much less expensive it was as
compared to Citrus Isles, where I had been looking.
I then met the Riverside group. These were citizens
of the area who had decided to turn Riverside
around. Its value, as a place to live in quiet and
safety, had steadily been eroded.
Iron's applauded as 'model citizen'
To the Editor:
I am perplexed by your article about Sonny
Irons and the series of letters that followed it. The
simple truth about Sonny Irons is that he is a model
citizen who has donated countless hours of time
toward improving Riverside Park and the City of
Fort Lauderdale. This reality is acknowledged by
the vast majority of people who know him and was
the primary reason behind his appointment to chair
the Marine Advisory Board.
Because Mr. Irons has been such an effective
leader, unavoidably, he has made some enemies
most of whom wrote to your publication and
requested that their names be withheld from print.
What a pathetic ploy this was. The same people who
formed the so-called and now discredited
"Stranahan Residents Association," vowed to destroy
. Riverside Park's Master Plan and street closures,
sued the Riverside Park Residents Association
(RPRA) and the City of Fort Lauderdale over the
street closures, spread hate literature and handbills
attacking city officials and RPRA leaders, and
spread dissension and hate among Riverside Park's
black resident children by telling them that RPRA
leaders wanted to grind them up and feed them to
the sharks, are now afraid to sign their names
because they fear retaliation from Mr. Irons.
Mr. Irons, myself, and most informed people
know exactly who the "name withhelds" are and,
frankly, could care less about what they think or-
believe. However, we are concerned as to why an
intelligent newspaper editor like yourself would
give a strong voice to such human scum in your
publication. Obviously, controversy sells
newspapers, but I believe this situation goes beyond
To the Editor:
I have recently read the article [in May] and
various letters to the editor in the June issue
regarding Sonny Irons.
I have known Sonny for about four years and
have seen him at work at the Marine Advisory
Board and at the "Original" Waterfront Master Plan
committee of which he was chairman. I have
attended almost all the meetings of these groups for
the past three years so I have had ample
opportunity to know him and observe him at work.
About two and a half years ago I moved to
Riverside Park and have observed his participation
at the homeowners meetings which I try to attend
on a regular basis.
Certainly I do not always agree with all his
ideas. However, I must admire a citizen who gives as
much time, with as much knowledge as he has, to
the betterment of his community. Were each and
every one of us to give even a fraction of the time
Sonny does to the improvement of our city we
would all have a much better place to live. He may
not be perfect but he has a lot of knowledge and
willingly gives hours of his time each week to make
this a better place. I think we should have more
people who willingly give their time for the public

In working with this group, Riverside Park
Residents Association, I got satisfaction in seeing
the improvements and a great deal of guilt from my
five hours or less a week commitment, as many
were putting in 20 to 60 hours of skilled and well-
thought-out efforts for improvements. Also, these
neighborhood volunteers saved many hundred-
thousands of taxpayers' dollars and stretched out
available project funds by building sidewalks,
conducting surveys, planting trees, laying sod, etc.
On just one sidewalk project, $20,000 in labor costs
Sonny Irons, his wife and children were part of
that group. But our Riverside meetings, held
frequently and observed by many of the 400
members, were attended by people with their own
convictions. They agreed because this was what
they wanted it was democracy in action.
I doubt if the leadership of the group, or Sonny
Irons working alone, browbeat Neighborhood USA
judges into selecting Riverside Park for
"Neighborhood of the Year," first place in the
nation in May 1992. And that stands up a lot better
than the innuendo and sniping that the group from
"Name Withheld" were shoveling against the wall of
the barn to see how much would stick.

Ask Big Al- marine mechanic
Question Now that summer is here and I'm
going up north (I'm a snowbird) I want to store my
boat until next year. I use my son's boat up north
and mine down in Florida. Any good suggestions I
Answer I don't know how large a boat you have
but leaving it in the water means growth and hard
stuff etc. on the bottom and hardware. A smaller
boat can be stored on the racks in a marina or on a
trailer. You can also block it on styrofoam blocks
for a solid support. Don't hang it from davits as you
disform the hull that way.
Remove battery and put on a shut-off trickle
charger. Pickle the engine to prevent rust and
corrosion. Drain carburetor and put some dry gas
or alcohol in fuel tank to absorb moisture. Cover
boat with tarps or canvas so that hornets or vermin
don't move in. Lightly oil or grease all controls etc.
I have more fun living here all year 'round.
Question I have a boat with hydraulic steering
and it's getting stiffer lately. As I don't know
anything about this type of steering, where do I
take it or what do I do?
Answer Hydraulic steering on a boat works like
hydraulic steering on your car. It is usually driven
by a belt that spins a pump. Some pumps are gear
driven or on a fixed hookup. First I would check
the oil in the pump reservoir and fill to full mark.
Then I would check if your pump belt is loose and
slipping. I would then check for binding or
excessive friction in steering controls and cables. If
oil is low or out, look for leaks on hoses or
connections. Work controls or wheel back and forth
for any noise or squeels. If pump is defective,
Question I want to upgrade the electronics on
my boat but am intimidated by all of those claims
that manufacturers make. Can you help me make
Answer You are certainly a very fortunate
fellow. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 3-2 of Fort
Lauderdale is holding an open house Saturday June
6 as an introduction into Safe Boating Week which
runs from Sunday June 7 through June 14. The
staff officer for public education of Flotilla 3-2 has
arranged for several instructors to hold mini-
lectures on a variety of marine electronics such as
VHF FM Radios, Depthfinders & Loran.
Hints of what to look for in a good product, and
special product features will be covered. You can
call 463-0034 for more information.
Good luck and safe boating.
Question I just bought a boat with an illegal
head and I want to install a new electric head and a
holding tank. I think I have the room for the
holding tank and the head will go where the old
Can I do it myself or should I call someone in?
Answer You got to be good to install what you
intend to do. You will have to run heavy duty wire
to run the motor on your electric head plus wire to
the bottom to operate it. The intake water line and
flush it line to holding tank, vent to holding tank
and pumpout connections so that you can clean it
out. You may want to install a Y-valve and a
macerator. Everything must be made secure and
hopefully you can use your thru hull fittings.
You got a real project ahead of you or you can
have it done for you.
Question I got the May issue of Waterfront News
and saw the picture of your book "Ask Big Al."
What book store has it? Two stores that I went to
didn't know about it.
Answer The book is now being distributed in
outlets. Sailorman on SR 84 has it, and other book
stores and marinas will also have it soon. You can
also pick it up at the Coast Guard Auxiliary at 601
Seabreeze Ave. in Fort Lauderdale any Saturday

Singer Island residents, hotel owners ask for beach renourishment study
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
SINGER ISLAND In order to combat
extensive erosion which has left much of Singer
Island with little or no beach, concerned residents,
hotel owners, and Riviera Beach City Council
members have asked Palm Beach County's
Department of Environmental Resources
Management (DERM) to help obtain county
approval to conduct an environmental study which
is needed to begin the beach renourishment
The study is expected to cost at least $75,000,
and would be performed by a consultant firm
because DERM doesn't have the time or the staff to
devote to the Singer Island project because of other
beach restoration projects already in the works.
In response to a presentation by several parties
concerned about the beach at a recent Countywide
Beaches and Shores Council meeting, Bob Clinger,
engineering coordinator with DERM, stated, "We're
going before the Board of County Commissioners
in July to recommend that they front the money to
pay for a consultant to perform an environmental
assessment and feasibility study."
John Nevin, president of the Singer Island Civic
Association, said that residents were rather naive in
thinking that the county would automatically take
care of the problem. The group has been trying to
get something done about the eroding beach since
Nevin stated, "From the photographs of the
beach you can see that we're at a critical stage we
need something done and we need something done
before it gets worse."
Initially, DERM officials will be looking at
restorating the beach dune and maintaining the
vegetation to offset some of the impacts. Clinger
added, however, that there may be some concerns
regarding environmental impacts in the area which
could present problems for approval of a
Riviera Beach City Council chairperson Marge
Confey stated that the beach on Singer Island is
"just washing away," and the environmental
assessment study is needed in order to get
something done about the problem.

Johnson's Oceanfront Plaza Resort on Singer Island
said that damage to his property from the eroded
beach has run into the hundreds of thousands of
dollars eight of the hotel rooms were lost, the
pool had to be restored, and all of the protective
dune behind the hotel has been washed away.
Alboher stated, "Due to the fact that the beaches
are waning quickly, we are losing business to
Pompano, Hutchinson Island, and other places
where beach renourishment has occurred.
Previous storms have taken out as much as 275
feet in width of the beach over the past few years.
Singer Island's beaches used to be some of the
widest in the area.
Chuck Beir, president of the Singer Island
Chapter of the Florida Shore and Beach
Preservation Association, said that DERM and the
city of Riviera Beach are looking to initiate a dune
restoration project as a first step in solving the
problem. The work could begin some time this

Maritime museum faces uncertain future
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
RIVIERA BEACH The architect of a
maritime museum .complex which could transform
Riviera Beach's downtown faces stiff opposition
from city council members who fear the project
would lose money.
John Grant, president of the Palm Beach
Maritime Museum, says a $2-million bond issue
with the city's backing is needed to buy the
museum property and get the project moving. Once
the museum is open to the public, Grant says the
rest of the money will start flowing in (much of it
from foundation grants) to complete his plans to
Revitalize the downtown waterfront area.
Plans call for setting up a water taxi service to
give tours of Peanut Island's Kennedy Bunker and
Coast Guard station, for construction of an IMAX
theatre, and the building of an advanced underwater
Members of the Riviera Beach City Council,
who also sit on the city's Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA) are responsible for
approval of the bond issue. Some members have
stated their hesitancy to approve the project.
One council member in favor of the project,
Bruce Guyton, stated, "I am very supportive of the
project. I feel that nothing is going On in the
downtown, and we, as a municipality must have a
sincere interest to do whatever we can to help them
get off the ground."
However, other city council members fear that
CRA money that will be used to guarantee the bond
issue will ultimately have to be used to cover
deficits from the museum's operations. Council
member Cinthia Bectin remarked, "I conceptually
agree with the project and I think it would be great
for Broadway (the downtown), but I want to make
sure the risk factors are not so great that we might
be paying for a dream we can't afford."
Marge Confrey, Riviera Beach City Council
chairperson, added, "If the project doesn't go
'\ ATLAS UNDERWRITERS
SMarine Insurance is our only business
through, the city winds up with an old restaurant
and $2 million in the hole."
Confrey and others have been waiting for the
results of a feasibility study on the project. The
CRA is currently in the process of finding a bond
underwriter in order to assemble a financial team
before a final decision will be made on the museum
Grant related that he has been frustrated in his
efforts to get the benefits of his proposal across to
city council members.
"We're applying well-understood techniques that
have been developed over the last two decades of
resurrecting blighted, downtown waterfront areas,"
Grant added, "It's not a we-versus-they situation;
there's no profit in this this is the only way you
can rebuild a crime-infested, decadent, inner city
area .. you have to start with a cultural attraction
that will have meaning for future generations."
Grant also expressed his disappointment that
other waterfront developers with projects that would
have complemented his, such as the Ramstein
marina project, have one by one backed out of their
commitments. Grant said that even if the city votes
against the bond issue, he is still planning to build
the museum somewhere else in the area.

Quest for the Indies
When Europe discovered the world
By DR. JOSEPH FITZGERALD
Special to the Waterfront News
MIAMI Quest for the Indies: Routes of
Exploration traces how knowledge of the world's
size and shape expanded as European explorers
traveled to new lands. The exhibition, which
features about 140 maps, most of which are
originals, will be in the Historical Museum of
Southern Florida's temporary gallery from April 24
(1992) to September 13 (1992). Between the mid-
1400s and the 1600s, voyagers, adventurers,
merchants, and explorers traveled by land and by
sea under the flags of various European nations.
Their efforts caused rapid and profound revisions
in the understanding of the world's geography.
According to Dr. Joseph H. Fitzgerald, guest
curator of Quest for the Indies, about 66 of the
maps featured in the exhibition were created prior
to 1650. Of those, 44 are originals, and 12 are
reproductions. Some reproductions are taken from
books, and several of these books are in the
exhibition. Quest also has 21 original maps created
between 1650 and 1700, and 24 original,
Eighteenth-Century maps. Most of the original
maps in Quest are from atlases that have been
disassembled, a source for many historic maps.
Quest for the Indies was produced and is
presented by the membership of the Historical
Association of Southern Florida with support from
local businesses, Metro-Dade Cultural Affairs
Council and the Metro-Dade Board of County
Commissioners, and the Historical Museum Grant-

European attempts at world exploration began in
the mid-1400s. The Crusades had opened
European eyes to the riches beyond the Christian
world. Desire for and dependence on spices, silks
and other goods from afar grew rapidly. However,
reaching the lands where these treasures lay was a
problem for the Europeans. The Ottoman Turks
had taken over Constantinople in 1453 and blocked
the eastward passage to China, India, and the East
By monopolizing the land route, the Ottomans
threatened western European economies. Plague
and civil unrest closed many borders. Even if the
Europeans could get through, it was a nine-month
journey from Persia to China. These factors
precipitated a drive to find alternate routes to the
European explorers took to the oceans. To
navigate they relied on the ancient studies of
Ptolemy (A.D. 150), an Alexandrian geographer
and astronomer. Like many scholars of his time,
Ptolemy believed that the earth was the center of the
universe and that the sun, stars, moon and planets
revolved around it. Ptolemy's maps were
reconstructed and his two books, the Almagest and
Cosmographia, were translated from Arabic into
Latin and German. While his geography was not
entirely accurate, his calculations enabled the
beginning of scientific cartography.
Some European explorers attempted to reach
China, Japan and the East Indies by sailing south

Under the Spanish flag, Christopher Columbus

Columbus had been inspired by the studies of
cartographer Paolo Toscanelli, who designed his
maps with water on both sides, thus emphasizing the
theory that by water, one could sail anywhere. This
gave Columbus the idea that he could reach Asia
via a westerly route. Toscanelli's Genoese world
map is featured in Quest for the Indies. The map,
made in 1457, is vividly decorated with dragons
and mermaids, reflecting the mystery associated
with the ocean.
Columbus' discovery had a devastating effect on
the scholars, cartographers and geographers of the
day. Geographic knowledge resulting from
exploration of the New World completely destroyed
Ptolemic conceptions of the circumference of the
earth and the relations of the continents. New
theories arose about the sun being the center of the
These new perceptions spread rapidly and fell
as seed in other fields of knowledge. Mapmakers
were quick to incorporate new discoveries into
world maps, and others adopted the idea that the
sun was the center of the universe.
Throughout history, maps have acted as more
than navigational tools. Carefully crafted works of
art, they are cultural documents, marking the beliefs
of groups of people.

Whitbread Race 93-94
on the horizon
Special to the Waterfront News
FORT LAUDERDALE Pictured above is the
first WOR 60 yacht constructed in the world to sail
in the next Whitbread Race 93/94. The Yamaha
Round the World challenge was built in New
Zealand and will be skippered by Kiwi sailor Ross
A meeting of the Whitbread Port
Representatives was recently held in San Diego and
was attended by local Fort Lauderdale race
organizers Tom Gleason and Cleve Jennings. Local
syndicate organizers, Kim Sanders-Fisher and
Gerald Bagwell also found their way to the coast.
This meeting coincided with the America's Cup and
provided an opportunity to host a press conference
for many of the International Yachting Press
covering the Cup activities.
It was reported that there are currently 88
syndicates from 25 countries registered with 11
reporting that they have full funding. There are
another 11 firm prospects and predictions show 29
boats from 16 countries as the final total. America's
Cup veteran Dennis Conner announced his Team
Dennis Conner entry and Ted Turner Jr. stated that
he has full funding from a Delaware corporation.
Of major impact was the announcement by
Heineken that they are very close to finalizing their
agreement with Whitbread and becoming the
Global sponsor for the Heineken Trophy. Jan
Beijerinch, Heineken spokesman, made it clear that
they are excited about the tremendous sponsorship
opportunities available to enhance the awareness
and image of the brand while promoting the world's
biggest, most prestigious and most global yachting
It was widely felt that this next race has reached
a new level of sophistication and worldwide
exposure has dramatically increased. "The various
levels of race involvement have become quite
Complex and the issues that are constantly being
addressed are to a great extent unlike those of the
89/90 event," said Cleve Jennings, executive director
of the Fort Lauderdale stopover. "When the fleet
sails into Port Everglades in April/May 1994 we'll
have a major event on our hands that many in our
community have participated in and that all can
enjoy and remember."

Local boat club knows no bounds
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News columnist
Fort Lauderdale Boat Club merits the interest of
South Florida boaters. There are no geographical
limits to membership so members range from Dade
to Palm Beach, and beyond, when winter boaers are
included. Some boats are trailered, others are in the
water, but all the travelers have fun, and cruising is
the name of the game.

along with a local picnic; Biscayne Bay for the

FORT LAUDERDALE A public hearing was
to be held June 24 to present the Florida
Department of Transportation's plans to replace the

public had an opportunity to give opinions and ask
questions at the hearing held at the Broward County
Just prior to the hearing, the public was able to

Reef cleanup makes impact
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
waterfront News writer
DELRAY BEACH Over 200 divers and
snorkelers braved stormy weather for much of the
day to participate in Operation Reef Clean, a county-
wide reef cleanup held last month.
The event was organized by the Ocean Impact
Foundation and was held in conjunction with other
reef cleanup on the same day.
According to many of the divers, the reefs were
found to be somewhat cleaner than was expected.
Joellen Phillips, a site coordinator at Newport
Cove Marina in Riviera Beach, had her dive students
scout the reefs for garbage after their certification
dives earlier in the day. She related that Paul's Reef,
a hook-shaped reef off the town of Palm Beach,
looked particularly bad the day of the reef clean.
Over 100 people gathered at Sailfish Marina to
celebrate the conclusion of the event,

Underwater music festival serenades to Coral Reefs
By ANDY NEWMAN
Special to the Waterfront News
LOOE KEY NATIONAL MARINE
SANCTUARY, Florida Keys The scenic coral
reefs off the Florida Keys again are slated to be the
setting for one of America's most unusual musical
events Saturday, July 11.
A radio broadcast piped undersea in high
fidelity for divers and snorkelers and possibly an
octopus or two with an ear for music is
scheduled for the eighth edition of the Underwater
Music Festival, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Looe Key,
the festival's site near Big Pine Key.
Festival director and coordinator Bill Becker,
news director of WWUS-FM 104.7 (US-1 Radio),
which broadcasts the event above and below water,
said this year's theme emphasizes protection and
preservation of the colorful, delicate living reef.
"There is a great deal of sensitivity toward
preserving the coral reef, so the festival's prime
focus this year is diver awareness," Becker said.
Together with experts at the Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary headquartered in
Marathon, Becker developed a number of recorded
messages which will be interspersed with the
undersea music to remind divers and snorkelers to
be cautious near the reef and to remind boaters
on the surface to watch out for those below.
The four-hour broadcast, a combination of
rhythmic reggae from the tropics and ethereal new
age compositions, achieves remarkably good
fidelity when piped through specially designed
underwater speakers, Becker said.
He said technicians from Lubell Laboratories of
Columbus, Ohio, travel to the festival every year at
their own expense and provide expertise along with
several sets of special high-tech speakers which are
installed on boats positioned above the reef.
Participating divers and snorkelers may charter
space aboard boats from a number of dive
Governor Chiles approves new lobster mini-season
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News writer
Early in June, Governor Lawton Chiles and his
Cabinet approved new rules pertaining to the
lobster mini-season that the Marine Fisheries
Commission had proposed earlier this spring.
Lee Schlesinger, Operations and Management
Consultant from the Marine Fisheries Commission,
advised that effective July 1, this year, the sport
divers mini-season will be held on the last
consecutive Wednesday and Thursday of July. That
means the dates this year will be on Wednesday and
Thursday July 29th and 30th.
The Governor's approval moves the two-day
season from the usual last weekend in July that has
been in effect for years. Complaints have increased
from environmentalists over the shock effect and
damage to the reef system that the ever- increasing
amounts of sport-divers do. This, plus complaints
from some businesses and residents in the Florida
Keys, about the disruption to the traffic and
business have made the change necessary.
Schlesinger stresses that the changes will be in
effect in state waters only and do not affect the
federal two-day season. Regrettably, he says, the
federal season this year will retain the same
weekend format and be on Saturday and Sunday,
July 25th and 26th. Federal waters begin three
miles offshore on Florida's east coast and ten miles
out on the west coast.
There will be an effort, Schlesinger hopes, to get
the federal government to change their rules next
year to come into line with the new state laws.
Schlesinger hopes this year that the boaters and
divers will have their fill of lobstering during the
federal season's weekend before the state season,
and put fewer boats and divers in the water in the
Keys during the state season.

Turning a boat into a money machine
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Instead of owning "a hole in the water into which
one pours money," many boaters confronting
economic reality seek to turn their boats into money
The concept isn't as far-fetched as it may appear.
Thousands of boaters have found ways to cut boating
costs a few have converted boating into a cash
enterprise. This is not news to anyone who frequents
the waterfront and thinks of people who combine
boating and business.
There was the computer whiz with a business in
New England and a boat at Staniel Cay Yacht Club,
Exuma Islands, The Bahamas. He kept the mail and
air waves busy as he worked in the boat's computer
cabin, far from the office.
In the '70s super-chef June Roth turned her talents
to The Galley Cookbook, a super way to eat well and
cruise. It includes a 23-page chapter on cooking the
Shortly after World War II more than a few South
Florida photographers and artists plied waterways,
and shoreline, photographing yachts or creating boat
Against that background, and in view of today's
economy, No Cost Boating, Rod Gibbons, Island
Educational Publishing, 327 pgs., paperbacks,
$19.95, is not so remote a possibility as some might
Gibbons also authored The Cruising Catamaran
Advantage, so this skipper has earned a return on
boats for some time.
In addition to Gibbons' personal experiences in
boating for profit, where most would be satisfied to
break-even, he has included authorities with each
chapter. Phone calls have proven the subjects to be
responsive to questions.
Chapter headings for the book include: Dinner-
Cruise Charter, Timeshare Boating, Boating Batik,
Floating Bed & Breakfast, Boating-Brochure
Photography, The Stock-Photo Alternative, The
Owner-Rep, General Chartering, The Boating Writer,
Shell Collecting, Mini-Boat Maxi-Profits, and Canvas
Entrepreneurial boating has drawbacks and he
notes them, but also tries to explain how to minimize
them. Dade County's Charter Club in Dade County
demonstrates that an owner can commit a vessel to a
pool arrangement and enjoy both boat and dollar
benefits. In addition, SCC operates functions that
encourage use of boats by owners and club members.
For information call 1-800-468-4440.

of creative talents required only a dozen pages to
recount the case history of Barbara Gleasoni and Larry
Pollock. Crafters and artisans, however, might be
inspired by the couple's success.
Bed and Breakfast afloat appears a more viable
opportunity for all owners, based on growing
popularity of B&B operations ashore. As a companion
thought, there are marinas where houseboats serve as
floating motels (Boot Key, Marathon, is one).
Gibbons' illustration is San Diego based. There, at
Robert Harris' Bed & Breakfast USA, he leases
private boats, then rents them as lodgings.

Floridians as source for information. Donna and Ken
Chesler, Plantation, are Boating-Brochure

Hemingway Days Festival, July 20-26, is slated to
pay tribute to the "literary life" he experienced on
this tropical island.
During the years Hemingway lived in his house

"For Whom the Bell Tolls," "A Farewell to Arms,"
'Green Hills of Africa". and "The Snows of
Festival Director Michael Whalton says the
annual tribute, which began 12 years ago as a small

Whalton said. "What was once just a three-day party

Key West conference focuses on water quality
By DEEVON QUIROLO
Special to the Waterfront News
The Environmental Focus Group of the
Leadership Conference "Goals for Key West: Focus
on the Future" will host a luncheon featuring Trudi
Coxe, Director of the Ocean & Coastal Resource
Management Office of the National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration on Wednesday, July
15, 1992 at 11:30 a.m. at Holiday Inn Beachside
Coxe will address the issue of water quality in
the Florida Keys and the role that creation of the
Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary can play.
The luncheon will give attendants an opportunity to
learn how the creation of the new sanctuary will
affect local businesses.
At the recent Leadership Conference hosted by
the Key West Chamber of Commerce and Florida
Keys Community College, the Environmental Focus
Group was formed to address one of several issues
of concern to the local community. Committee
member Ed Toppino, Jr. stated, "We met and
determined that the need to improve water quality
was the paramount environmental challenge facing

22 Waterfront News July 1992 Nautical Dining
Good food prevails at Pompano
By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News reviewer
Often, waterfront restaurants are as plentiful as
the portions of fish they serve. Before a patron even
pushes through the door, you can almost be assured
that the familiar will prevail right down to the
listings on the menu and the decorations dangling
from the wall.
And all too frequently, such places serve
mediocre food, relying on their choice locations to
pull in a crowd.
The Pelican Pub in Pompano Beach is not such
Although the typical format is evident here, the
restaurant also strives to please its customers with
more than an acceptable facade.
For example, its location inside a ramshackle
building with knotty pine walls, tin roof and wood
deck floors inspires authenticity. As does the
seafood market where patrons come to purchase the
Rather than detracting from its appearance, the
"fishing lodge" decor and well-worn menus offer a
feeling of comfort.
On a recent weeknight visit, despite the off-
season and the early dinner hour, the dining room
filled up quickly.
We began our meal with a complimentary cup
of smoked fish dip with crackers, a welcome change
from an ordinary basket of rolls.
Sampling the New England clam chowder was a
good move. It was not served overly thick the way
some aficionados may prefer, but rather brimming
with clams and small chunks of potatoes and lots of

lobster tail, Ipswich clams ($14.95) and cracked
Bahamian conch konk ($10.95).
Other non-seafood choices include grilled
peppered chicken ($9.95) and filet mignon
All in all, there are enough selections to keep
customers coming back every night for a month
without ordering the same dinner twice.
The yellowfin tuna was adequately flavored with
a fruity sauce dominated with pineapple and
ginger. I also enjoyed the Oriental seafood stir fry,
a healthy combo of broccoli, carrots, shrimp and
scallops over rice. However, only traces of crab
meat could be found, unlike the description
promised in the menu, And the accompanying hot
and sour sauce was nothing spectacular.
Although the food is quite good for the most
part, it's important to note that there is no bargain to
be found here. Even with ordering the early bird
special, a bill for three people was over $70,
including three desserts and two drinks.
Speaking of dessert, the mud pie ($2.95) was a
bit too gooey to be throughly enjoyed. A cheese
cake ($3.95) with a light chocolate coating was

Giant wahoo highlights 7th Annual Ladies' Fish-off
By RACHEL LEACH
Special to the Waterfront News
A record field of over two hundred anglers on
136 boats competed in the 7th Annual Ladies' Fish-
Off to benefit Kids in Distress. This year anglers
fished out of Port Everglades, Hillsboro and Boca
Inlets with a Bimini start at 7:00 a.m. The early start
resulted in a record catch.
The most noteworthy catch was a 77.5 lb.
wahoo caught by Jean Sottini aboard the Louis-
Louis out of Lighthouse Point. The fish, which was
only six pounds short of a world record for women
on 20 pound test hit a live goggle-eye fished with a
balloon in 105 feet of water off Boca Raton. Sottini
needed only 15 minutes to boat the fish. She also
caught a 10-pound dolphin to gamer the third
place trophy and $500.
The $3,000 first prize went to top angler
Stephanie Waszak fishing on the Vitamin Sea Too
with 113 points. Second place of $1,500 went to
Julie Bruner on the Silver Spoon with 63 points.
Thirteen-year-old Ashley David, fishing aboard the
Frick and Frack took home the $550 savings bond
for the top junior.

Fishing July 1992 Waterfront News 25
Pound for pound, fresh
water fishing is hopping
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Most anglers would relish an opportunity to wet
a line in a fishing hole with 229 pounds of game
fish per acre. Perhaps South Florida's residents
and vacationing Isaac Waltons tend to ignore this
attraction because it's too close to home in South
Florida's canal system.
That's the word from Paul Shafland, director,
Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission's
(FGFWFC) Non-Native Fish Lab in Boca Raton.
The rod and reel set, complemented by cane
pole advocates and youngsters with hand lines, are
in fish-rich waters when they patrol waterways that
are part of the 1,000-mile canal system. Lake
fishing can be equally productive.
That's good news for those who catch fish for
sport or to put a meal on the table. It's equally
good news for vacationers traveling South Florida's
highways with time to try the water.
The only caveat for inland anglers is the alert to
be aware of mercury contamination of catches.
Call the local FGFWFC office for details on this.
Canal fishing took an upturn a few years ago
when peacock bass first were introduced as part of a
stocking program. This is a world-class sport fish
from South America.
Largemouth bass surpass even peacock bass in
the esteem of anglers who also fish for mullet,
redear, bluegill, tilapia, and other species.
How good is the inland fishing? In May
FGFWFC stocked just five Palm Beach County lakes
with 15,400 sunshine bass.

26 Waterfront News July 1992 Letters
MORE LETTERS, FROM page 6
should change name to Waterfront Inquirer
To the Editor:
This letter is in response to the rash of "anti-
Sonny Irons" articles and unsigned letters-to-the-
editor that have emerged in your publication over
the last few months. Contrary to what you and some
of your pusillanimous readers might wistfully
contemplate, Sonny Irons does have friends .
many more than you all, in your closed-minded
little worlds, might comprehend. I am proud to be
considered one of them.
Concerning one of the comments in the last
issue of Waterfront News, if you have ever visited
the house that Irons is building and inspected its
construction, you would realize why it is taking him
so long to get it completed to the point of obtaining
a certificate of occupancy. If we ever do get that oft
predicted major hurricane in south Florida, I would
venture that Sonny's house would be the last one in
Riverside to blow away. In fact, those covetous
neighbors of his should consider making some
kind of accord with the Irons, for they might just
some day need to seek shelter in that house should
that anticipated great storm actually materialize.
I do, however, agree with one of your "letter
writers" in regard to Sonny Irons and the
"Columbus Statue" being placed on the bank of the
New River. Contrary to Sonny Iron's thinking, I,
myself, feel if there is any monument at all, instead
of Columbus, the Spaniard, it should be a shrine to
Lief Erickson, the Viking, who really discovered
Having worked in the field of journalism, with a
degree, for twenty-five years, I feel qualified in
stating that the allusion to Sonny Irons striking his
own mother was mis-contexted, distorted and of
little news significance ... especially for a maritime-
oriented publication. It is a classic text-book
example of a reporter struggling to make his story
readable even at the sacrifice of absolute
It's too bad that Sonny is not running for public
office now, for he seems to be getting more
publicity than even our illustrious sheriff at least
in the Waterfront News.
I wonder how your enigmatic letter writers, who
refer to Sonny as a "racist" and "anti-gay," would

feel if a black, ten-kid welfare family were to move
into a house on their own block. It's idiosyncratic
how supporters of non-plurality groups suddenly
make a complete turnabout when a predicament
concerning that minority suddenly comes home.
Sonny is no more anti-black or anti-gay than the
average white or straight person. True, he is
definitely more outspoken, but I have yet to find
him to be an out-and-out bigot.
Yes, Sonny Irons is often very outspoken, and at
times even blatantly so. It is too bad, however, that
there are not more vocal individualists like Sonny
around instead of so many unassertive wimps who
can only flow with the tide forever afraid of
making waves. Then maybe Broward County would
not be under the thumb of the most anti-

commission in its history. And our drinking-water
well fields would not be jeopardized by salt water
intrusion resulting from over-development and its
accompanying over-population. Also, the New
River here in Fort Lauderdale would not be
approaching a dangerously high pollution status.
And speaking of the New River, look at what our
"concrete-happy" county commission is about to do
with downtown Ft. Lauderdale's Smoker Park. They
want to hand it, virtually tax-free and for a pittance,
to some of their campaign contributing, developer
cronies who would destroy that oak tree-filled open
space forever. Don't blame the commissioners,
however. Blame the "condo-kooks" (they sure as
Hell aren't commandos) and those other wimps
who vote for them year after year and, mostly
though, those of you whom have never seen the
inside of a voting booth.
As to Sonny's "friends," the police, I am sure
that if he had his way, the cops, instead of writing
hour-long reports and administering code
enforcement laws, would utilize more time to
protect citizens and fight criminals.
And now with Sonny Irons heading up the
Marine Advisory Board, that body will have a lot
less nit-picking and petty motions by certain of its
members who still seek their fifteen minutes of
After having read all of the 'TSonny Irons"
letters and articles in the last few issues of the
Waterfront News, most of which had very little to do
with south Florida boating activities and waterways,
I have come to one conclusion, John. You should
rename your publication the Waterfront Enquirer.

Martinique strike a romantic chord in you? If
so, this may be for you. I started my own
business when I was 23. At 44, I've made
my mark, but I'm also very tired of the rat
race & ready for a LONG vacation. I'm taking
an extended leave-of-absence from my
company (one to five years maybe longer)
to recharge my psyche & pursue my love
of sailing. I am looking for a very special
lady to share the second half of my life
with & to accompany me on an extended
sailing cruise. We'll explore the islands of
the Caribbean for a year. or two; then, who
knows? Maybe the South Pacific? The
Mediterranean? Sailing experience is not
required, but she should be intelligent,
water-resistant, adventurous, very
attractive, slim & willing to temporarily put
her career on hold to kick back, feel the
sand between her toes, the trade winds in
her hair & savor life at a different pace for a
while. Send note, photo to Box 1024, 1402
