whatever happened to the greatest sailor of all?
By RICHARD WINER
Special to the Waterfront News
Sir Francis Chichester has often been extolled as
the "sailor of the Twentieth Century." In 1966, Sir
Francis, sixty-five years old and his body racked with
cancer, set sail from England aboard his fifty-three-
foot ketch Gypsy Moth IV on a solo 28,500-mile round
the world voyage. The old age pensioner, who became
seasick every time he put out to sea, completed his
circumnavigation nine months later. The voyage was
underwritten by several well-to-do backers. The
Gypsy Moth IV was equipped with the finest state of
the art electronic and navigation equipment of the day.
Yet, it was still a far cry from today's mega yachts.
For his great accomplishment, Sir Francis was
knighted by the Queen of England.
If Francis Chichester is the "sailor of this century,"
then Joshua Slocum is without doubt the "sailor of the
last century." Many an old salt will give argument to
anyone denying that Slocum is the "greatest sailor of
On April 24, 1895, two months after his fifty-first
birthday (all you young sailors take note these two
great seafarers' ages), Joshua Slocum set sail from
Boston on his single-handed voyage around the world
a distance of 46,000 miles.
Chichester was attempting to equal the times set by
the clipper ships; thus, he sailed the most direct routes
and strived for all the speed he could attain. On his
three-year voyage, Slocum's only goal was to be the
first man to sail around the globe alone. This accounts
for the time and distance differences of the two cruises.
Slocum's Spray measured thirty-six feet and nine
inches with a fourteen-foot beam. Not only was the
Spray considerably smaller than the Gypsy Moth IV,
but she was far less equipped. When Slocum would
cast off, he had to do so under sail or with a tow boat.
Chichester merely cranked up his diesel auxiliary
engine and headed out to wherever he wanted to hoist
The Spray emanated from a joke played on Slocum
by a retired whaling captain. As the Nineteenth
Century drew toward an end, steam was rapidly
replacing sail as a means of nautical propulsion. Many
of the tall sailing ships laid at dockside or on mud flats,
their skeletal masts and yardarms stripped, waiting for
ship breakers or cargos that would never come. Others
had their spars removed and were towed about as coal
barges. Hundreds of sailing ship masters found
themselves stranded on the beach or retired to "old
sailors' homes." Joshua Slocum, twenty-five years a
sailing ship captain, found himself beached. The ship
owners no longer wanted the men who were
instrumental in establishing the United States as one of
the leading seafaring nations.
Slocum spent his days browsing along the
waterfronts, passing time with watchmen aboard laid-
up sailing hulks, and talking with other unemployed
sea captains. And it was one of these old cronies who
offered Slocum a ship "that wants some repairs." The
ship was located at Fairhaven just opposite New
Bedford. The vessel was Slocum's for the taking -
no strings attached.
The next day Slocum saw his "new" ship. He had
been the butt of a hoax, for the Spray was an ancient
hulk whose age none of the townsfolk could.
remember. She had been blocked up in a field several
miles from the water for at least seven years. Being a
resolute man and having little else to do, Slocum
accepted the prank as a challenge. The hulk required
so much rebuilding that the many retired sea captains
who visited with him during the eighteen months that
Slocum spent working on the boat couldn't tell
whether the Spray was new or an old vessel rebuilt.
Besides his own labor, Slocum spent $553.62 for
materials with which to reincarnate the Spray.
The big question among those who knew the boat
and the man was, "will it pay?" The little ship's sailing
qualities were outstanding the Spray had ability and
speed to outsail most other vessels anywhere near her
size. It was only after an unsuccessful attempt at
commercial fishing with the Spray that Slocum decided
to sail her alone around the world. There were many
critics of the old captain's plans, for the feat was
But Slocum was not a man to be deterred. And he
embarked on the voyage, a voyage full of mystery,
adventure and close calls. In his book Sailing Alone
Around the World, Slocum describes an incident near
the Azores in which he fell seriously ill. As he lay
doubled up in pain on the floor of the boat's cabin, a
storm struck. But he was too sick and delirious to
shorten sail. He passed out.
Sometime later, he awakened. The gale was still
blowing. Peering out the companionway, he saw, to
his astonishment, a man at the helm holding the Spray
on a steady course in spite of the turbulence of the sea.
The man was attired in clothing of centuries past. The
stranger introduced himself as being a member of
Columbus' crew, the pilot of the Pinta. He said that he
had come to guide Slocum's ship that night.
The next morning when Slocum had sufficiently
recovered enough to go out on deck, the gale had
moderated, and the sun was shining. The strange
helmsman was nowhere to be seen. Everything not
secured had been washed away during the storm. The
decks were white.from the sun-baked salt spray. The
gale had been more severe than Slocum had imagined.
Yet, the sails that he had been too sick to furl were still
set and pulling. They should have been ripped to
shreds. Then he discovered that the Spray had made a
good ninety miles right on course during the night.
Only a helmsman could make that possible. Although
unrecognized for years to come, the area was on the
fringe of what was one day to become the "Devil's
Slocum had originally plotted his course from west
to east across the Atlantic, through the
Mediterranean, Suez Canal, Red Sea and into the
Indian Ocean. Eventually he could cross the Pacific,
round Cape Horn, and sail up the Atlantic back to
Boston. But these plans were thwarted due to an
attempted attack by Mediterranean pirates as'he was
approaching Gibralter. The Spray proved its sailing
qualities by outrunning the Arab's dhow. Having been
warned about the pirates in the Mediterranean and Red
Seas, Slocum decided to sail back across the Atlantic
toward Cape Horn. His east to west circumnavigation
included run-ins with savages, storms, self-esteemed
customs officials and the like. Because he lacked
fifteen dollars to have his chronometer repaired,
Slocum bought a tin one- dollar alarm clock with the
minute hand missing. This served as his navigation
timepiece. The only other navigation equipment aboard
the Spray were a compass, a sextant and sailing charts.
When Joshua Slocum sailed the Spray into Boston
Harbor on June 27, 1898, the fanfare was far less than
that received by Chichester almost seventy years later.
Only locally did the fifty-four-year-old sailor receive
the honors he deserved, for the newspaper headlines
were dominated by news of the Spanish-American
War and the succession of American naval victories.
Slocum's rise to fame was gradual as the war ended.
But fame and glory did come to the old man and his
boat. His book not only became a best seller but also
was required reading in public schools, and the sailor,
who could not swim, was demanded worldwide as a
In the fall of 1909, Slocum, then sixty-five years
old, set forth on another single-handed voyage to the
Cairibbean. On November 14, he put to sea from
Miami where he had stopped for supplies. Joshua
T Slocum, the greatest sailor of them all and the Spray
from Boston sailed into what is today known as the
"Devil's Triangle" arid disappeared forever.

Boating deaths up
A note of shame mars summer cruising days as
the Coast Guard has issued a warning to
recreational boaters after releasing news that 924
deaths in 1991 reversed a five-year trend that began
in 1986. In addition to the deaths there were 3,967
reported injuries, and 8,821 boats involved in 6,573
reported accidents with damages figures reaching
$24.8 million. The Coast Guard estimates only a
small percentage of accidents are reported.
Capsizing and falling overboard from
recreational boats were responsible for more than
60 percent of all fatalities during the year. In
addition, overloading small boats with people and
gear continues to be a serious hazard, according to
Admiral William Ecker, head of the Coast Guard's
recreational boating safety program.
Failure to wear PFDs contributed to the death
toll, as did alcohol consumption.
"Excessive alcohol consumption plays a part in
at least half of all fatal boating accidents," Ecker
said, and added that statistics show intoxicated
boaters (blood alcohol content of 0.10 percent or
above) are nearly 11 times more likely to die in a
boating accident than those who stay sober.
Collisions between boats cause most personal
injury and property damage. These are caused by
skippers who don't know, or won't follow rules of
the road or safe boat handling procedures.
Reporting on these statistics annually becomes
as depressing as does the knowledge most coastal
Florida residents will ignore hurricane preparedness
and evacuation procedures.

Catch quotas proposed
for deep water fishes
Catch quotas have been recommended for
golden grayline, blueline tilefish, yellowedge and
snowy grouper, amberjack and Spanish mackerel.
The proposal came from the South Atlantic
Fisheries Council. Populations of these deep water
fishes are believed to be dwindling. SAFC is the
federal body that regulates commercial and
recreational fishing in the Carolinas, Georgia and
Florida. There is no current limit in force.
Shark limits being set
In another move affecting anglers the state has
set limits on shark catches, with new federal limits
expected at about the time this appears in print. A
one-shark-per-day limit has been imposed in state
waters. A demand for shark fins from Japan and
popularity of shark meat domestically produced
overfishing, according to Michael Justin, National
Marine Fisheries Service. Included in the limits are
37 shark designations. Also protected are
sawsharks, sawfish, and spotted eagle rays, all
deemed vulnerable tO overfishing.
Dock hearings slated for
unincorporated Broward County
Public hearings are planned for August which"
may have a direct impact on waterfront
neighborhoods in unincorporated Broward County.
There is a ordinance proposal before the County
Commission which would redefine "dolphin poles,"
define what "mooring pilings" are and apply
sideyard property line setbacks upon boats in areas
including Lauderdale Isles south of Riverland
County Commissioners have scheduled hearings
for 5:00 p.m., August 11 and 25 at the Broward
County Governmental Center, 115 South Andrews
Avenue in Fort Lauderdale to encourage public
debate on dock usage and code enforcement.
"Where did this ordinance proposal come
from?" asked Lauderdale Isles resident Bill
Boerner. "Has the county's Marine Advisory
Committee reviewed it?"
According to Shirley Foley with the County
Zoning. & Code Enforcement office, county staff
drafted the proposal after receiving several letters
from Al Reed, also of Lauderdale Isles.

Special to the Waterfront News
BROWARD COUNTY On July 23, the
Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)
began installing the first of 11 highway signs
identifying State Road 84 from Interstate 95 to
State Road 7 as Marina Mile. The action follows the
state Legislature's recent approval of a bill
renaming the designated portion of the road.
The first sign was installed on State Road 84, at
a public ceremony by State Senator Ken Jenne; the
mayors from the cities of Dania, Fort Lauderdale,
Davie and Hollywood; and members of the Marina
Mile 84 Association.
Installation of the ten remaining Marina Mile
directional signs, to be placed in locations on 1-95,
SR7 and 1-595, were to be completed by the end of
July, according to FDOT officials.
The signs are particularly unique because they
feature the Marina Mile 84 Association's logo
graphic, an unprecedented application for such
The Marina Mile 84 Association, founded in
1991, was instrumental in influencing the state to
create the new roadway designation and signs in an
effort to promote economic development of the
marine business district which was crippled by the
construction of the 1-595 highway.
The grassroots association is comprised of over
30 members from marine and related businesses

Reed has been complaining about perceived

to various county agencies and boards including
the Marine Advisory Committee (MAC). Last year,
the MAC listened to Reed and 50"of his neighbors
who disagreed with him before committee members
likewise rejected Reed's ideas.
Now, Reed has sidestepped the MAC and has
appealed directly to the County Commission. The
MAC has not reviewed the ordinance changes, said
John Fiori, the County's liaison to the MAC;
however, the committee will study the proposal at its

traffic which previously passed our storefronts is
diverted," notes Philip Chrysler, Marina 84 general
manager and Marina Mile 84 Association secretary,
adding, "We see the road naming and installation of
signs as an important step to resurrecting the vitality
of this once thriving marketplace."
The association has a number of goals and has
initiated action on additional significant changes
aimed at heightening awareness of the area and
attracting new business. Primary interests include
the construction of more desirable U-turns and
traffic lanes as well as landscape improvements
along SR84 and dredging of the New River to allow
larger boats access to marinas in the area.
To the group's credit, highway construction
improvements are to begin this summer, officials
from the city of Dania are investigating funds and
sources for new landscaping, and the city of Fort
Lauderdale has agreed to contract for dredging
pending the outcome of mandatory environmental
tests of New River sediment.
"The association is very enthusiastic that as
more of the changes resulting from our efforts
come to fruition, SR84 and its businesses will once
again prosper," concludes Chrysler.

Waterfront News August 1992 Letters
One against a 17th Street tunnel
To the Editor:
A landmark in the City of Ft. Lauderdale,
literally a gateway to South Florida to boaters and
tourists and residents alike, is about to be
demolished, and the public does not realize it or
hasn't thought about it.
When I stood on the 17th Street bridge
enjoying the spectacle of the 1991 boat parade, I
mentioned to a bystander that our great cheap seats
will be gone in a few years because a $100,000,000
tunnel will be there instead. He expressed doubt
that the tunnel would ever actually go through; that
it would drown, like many -other huge public
projects have, in red tape. Unfortunately, he'd be
wrong. The tunnel is going to go through, without
a public vote.
At the recent public hearing, people
overwhelmingly spoke in opposition to the project.
Although not normally organized, as the tunnel
advocates have been, they voiced great public alarm
at this project. These people were boaters,
snowbirds, residents a cross-section of people of
various interests and backgrounds.
-As editor of a newspaper which serves the
people of the area which will suffer the greatest
impact from the tunnel or its alternatives, I urge
you to review the transcript of that hearing and read
about the many and varied problems this tunnel will
cause if it is built, some of which have not been
publicized enough. I urge the Waterfront News to
take a stand now against the tunnel.
Of interest to sailboaters in particular, the tunnel
will actually result in a shallower channel than the
present bridge has. Perhaps those deriving income
directly from the tourist industry should consider
the pedestrians who will be banned from the bridge
by the "PEDESTRIAN PROHIBITED" sign which
will alight when traffic congestion occurs, because
of harmful CO levels inside the tunnel (drivers are
on their own; bring your own canary).
Perhaps the Waterfront News could consider
publishing some or all of that DOT ventilation
study of March of 1992 to help the readers grasp
the fact that traffic detours will be routine. When
the tunnel is open to motor traffic, for example,
workers won't be able to stay in there long enough
to wash the walls (or do other routine maintenance)
because of the CO levels. So that means the traffic
has to go over Las Olas bridge. And the tunnel has
been touted as a cure to traffic congestion. What's
wrong with this picture?
If you, as editor, believe the tunnel will be a
great attraction and will improve things, I urge you
to call me at 523-1416 or write me so that I can
give you some more comprehensive information.
If you think this is a non-issue, I suggest strongly,
again, that you obtain a copy of the transcript of
the hearing. If you need to, call me for information
about how-to obtain the transcript. There is a lot of
sentiment to save the bridge and its view in our
community. This project needs to be written about
early and often, because this tunnel, if it goes
through, will definitely change a lot about southeast
Fort Lauderdale, and for the worse.

We have been extremely pleased with the results
of the ad in your publication. Of the nine different
ads we have running, 25% of the calls we have

'Where to park?' on Lauderdale's beach
To the Editor:
The Master Plan for Fort Lauderdale's primary
attraction, the stretch of beachfront from Sea
Breeze Blvd. to Sunrise Blvd., continues to unfold
along A1A. As the paved walkway replaces the
parking meters, the question becomes: "Where to
park?" While the removal of the parked and
parking cars significantly enhances beach
aesthetics, until the parking garage at the comer of
A1A and Las Olas Blvd. is completed, beach access
below Sunrise Blvd. is restricted to tourists staying

MANATEE TRUST FUND:
a bureaucratic "pea-switching"
To the Editor:
The letter from Patrick Rose of the DNR in
response to Howard McFann's is almost classic as an
example of bureaucratic thinking. After stating that
the Manatee Trust receives "no general revenue
dollars," he mentions that it gets "$1.50 from each
Of the $1.2 million income for the Manatee
Trust Fund in the 90-91 fiscal year, 47% or
$560,000 came from the $1.50 vessel registration
fees. Were those funds not appropriated for the
Manatee Fund, they would go to general revenue.
In fact, they are General Revenue dollars until
This is the same type of bureaucratic pea-
switching which took place after the lottery was
installed to improve education and general revenue
dollars were diverted from education.
The $1.50 vessel registration fee is a tax which
goes into the Manatee Fund. I don't necessarily
object to this use of tax dollars if it be the will of
the Legislature, but I do resent the bureaucrats'
thinking I'm too dumb to recognize it.

To the Editor:
The 1990 Florida Legislature directed the Florida
Dept. of Natural Resources to spend $50,000.from the
Manatee Protection Trust Fund to match a Florida
Inland Navigation District (FIND) grant to fund
manatee auditory research. After a two-year delay, the
research has been underway at Tampa's Lowry Park
Zoo since last fall under the able guidance of Ed
Gerstein of Florida Atlantic University and Geoff
Patton of Mote Marine Laboratories.
The second year's funding for the study will be
coming due during 1993 and FIND has agreed to
The Marine Industries Association of Florida
lobbyist, Dennis Barton,- will be trying to obtain
$60,000 funding for the study from the Manatee
Protection Trust Fund again this year during the
special May session. We ask that [the Legislature] give
every consideration to supporting such legislation. The
study could prove very important in enabling manatees
to better avoid oncoming boats by being able to
directionally distinguish a particular noise frequency.

Question Now that the hurricane season is upon
us' I'm a little (or a lot) worried about my boat in
case of a big blow hitting Florida where I live. My
home is on a canal. Behind my house is my boat
and other boats are docked in front and behind me;
also there are boats on the other side of the canal.
Can you give me any advice on what I
personally should do? I'm a newcomer to Florida
and would appreciate some help.
Answer-First I would contact my neighbors
around me, back of me, front of me and across the
canal. They have done this before and you should
all work together in storm or wind problems. You
also can get hurricane literature from marinas,
papers and various city agencies. If you can go to a
boat shelter or place to store your boat make plans
now before it's too late. When I lived in Ft.
Lauderdale all of us on our canal tied our boats in
the center and roped from both sides after stripping
our boats from all loose chairs, canvas, etc., and
allowing for high tides and wind. If you all work
together you will save your vessels and prevent
damage to them. Anchor lines and tie lines should
be protected from chafing and small boats should
be hauled. Any Coast Guard Auxiliary or Power
Squadron member will advise you also (you should
Question I have a sailboat that I use a lot. I live
on it for weeks and I sail to the Bahamas and south
to the Keys and beyond. I read all the sailing
guides and magazines about what I should have on
a traveling sailing vessel and I really can't carry all
that I am urged to buy. What would you really keep
in case of an emergency? And what can I do to
keep the costs down?
Answer You pose quite a question there. What
kind of an emergency? Demasting in a storm? You
would need a wire cutter or a sharp knife or
hatchet. A generator or inverter would be a great
thing to have. A tool box is a necessity. A radio is a
must with a hand-held to back it up. An E.P.I.R.B.
and a Coast Guard box with flares and signals, an
emergency life raft, food. water, a medical box with
all aids, some parts for your motor and a compass
and the latest GPS to pinpoint where you are for
your rescuers. I better stop here.
You are starting to sound like Dear Abby with
advice to the lovelorn. What happened to all the
engine problems we used to read about and what
about all these new rules and taxes?
Answer Send me your engine problems and I
will do my best to answer them. Most of the
problems I get I have answered a number of times.
I can't send you back issues of the Waterfront News
but most everything I've written about in the
Waterfront News is in my book Ask Big Al. You can
ask for it at Sailorman's and other marine stores.
You can pick one up at the Coast Guard Auxiliary
on Saturday mornings from me between 9 a.m. and
12 noon. We do vessel exams and classes every
Saturday morning and I will also be available for
questions from you. Hey, about taxes and rules and
laws, write your elected officials and let them know
how you feel. Join a boating club like Boat U.S. or
any yacht club. They have clout.
Question I have a fiberglass boat with the deck
peeling or spotting and I have the gelcoat cracking
and flaking. The boat is 12 years old and very
good and solid except for the bad coating on the
deck. The gelcoat seems to be just speckling off in
Answer You can do it yourself or have
professionals do it for you. The deck has to be
stripped or masked and sanded and really cleaned
down of all waxes and dirt etc. the railings and
snaps, hardware and all bolt-on or screwed-on
accessories removed. Preparation is the most
important part of this job. Now you can buy Imron,
epoxy, two-part paint, a new polyurethane paint -
the list is endless. But you must use good brushes
and a great paint in a dust-free (no wind) moisture-
proof place to get the best smooth level finish. Do
the whole deck if possible as you very seldom can
match faded or worn gelcoat. The new paint will
show right up.
Lot's of work for a do-it-yourselfer.

The 'Big Ditch's' keepers at F.I.N.D.
By HANK & DORIE JONES
Waterfront News writers
MIAMI Sunday afternoon outings for
thousands of South Floridians and their guests take on
a patina of glamour when the host heads the family
craft into the waters of the Intracoastal Waterway,
sometimes known as "The Big Ditch."
Where else can tourists enjoy cruising along 1,243
miles of mostly protected shoreline from Norfolk,
VA., to Key West? Add Florida's West Coast, then
continue around the Gulf to Brownsville, Texas and
the trip approaches 3,000 miles. Extend the cruise
north to Maine and the journey assumes major
proportions. It dwarfs exploration of the Mississippi
River, about 2,350 miles, and makes the Panama
Canal's 40.27 miles a run to the corer store.
Florida's east coast stretch of the Intracoastal
Waterway (ICW) is among the most heavily traveled.
From the St. Mary's River, the Georgia border, south
to Key West, some 529 statute miles pass under a
This area of the marine highway is the
responsibility of a little-known state unit, the Florida
Inland Navigation District (FIND). Amiable Art Wilde
is executive director, with his office in Jupiter, not far
from the inlet and Jupiter Lighthouse.
The ICW section over which he holds jurisdiction
was part of a private toll project envisioned in 1881,
extending from the St. John's River to Biscayne Bay.
Even a century ago there was recognized need for
adequate inland-water transportation here.
Work began in 1883 and ended in 1912 with a
channel five feet deep and 50 feet wide.
However, the canal had problems: it tended to
shoal frequently and required almost constant
In 1926 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
recommended to the War Department that the ICW
become a federal responsibility. The Corps' report
listed ICW benefits to Florida's east coast residents
and the nationwide military and commercial potential of
this protected inland route for small vessels.
Two barriers were requirements that "local
governments" acquire right-of-way and turn it over to
the United States without cost to the government, and
that "local interests" furnish suitable areas for deposit
of dredged materials in connection with the work and
Florida's legislature created FIND in 1927 and
authorized purchase of the existing canal which was
turned over to the federal government. A 75-foot
channel, 8 feet deep, was authorized and the toll was
By 1930 a 100-foot width was approved and by
1939 a 12-foot depth was approved with "an
Today's channel is 125 feet wide, 10 feet deep
from Miami to Fort Pierce and 12 feet from Fort Pierce
This historic ditch is more than a hole in the water
into which one pours money. The return on investment
for Floridians, visitors and cruising yachtsmen, has
The ICW remains home to great fishing waters.
Biscayne Bay is an outstanding example. Fish
populations proliferate as restocking continues and
environmental damage is reversed.
Much progress results from the activities of FIND.
Mandated areas reserved for deposit of dredged
materials grow into spoil islands and evolve into
In Dade, FIND helped finance Pelican Harbor
Marina, a county environmental and learning center at
the Deering Estate, and repairs to Venetian Causeway.
Sinkholes in Biscayne Bay were dug too deep
years ago. FIND is making it possible to fill them with
dredged materials from the Port of Miami turning
basin, Wilde said. Filled materials will be topped with
sand and sea grass will be planted.
Among FIND's current expenses are plans for a
new Las Olas Marina, Riverwalk, Seventh Avenue
Boat Docks and a new fire/rescue boat in Fort
Lauderdale. Dollars also were available for Oceanwalk
in Hollywood along with Broward's new West Lake
Palm Beach County gained improved boat ramps
and Stuart a riverwalk extension.
It's probably impossible to estimate the extent to
which FIND dollars produce returns for taxpayers.
Tourists enjoy inland boating and make this area home,
cruising boaters extend visits, vacationers charter boats
and rent open boats, and sightseeing boats proliferate
to impove vacation quality.
In terms of tourism and population the ICW may
have rivaled U.S. 1 in the old days and 1-95 today.
Airline passengers look down on the ICW and see a
waterway with the pulling power of a great magnet.
Between 1986-90, from Jacksonville to Dade
County, FIND contributed more than $7-million with
1990-91 grants alone more than $2.2 million.That's a
nice return of taxpayer dollars creating attractions that
help stimulate the economy.

Air rescuers come to the aid of boaters
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
"They are among the bravest and most selfless
men I have ever known," wrote Howard Sochurek in
National Geographic, July 1968.
He wrote of "American Airmen engaged in
rescue work around the globe."
At the time these Blue Suiters were primarily
engaged in rescues in the jungles of Viet Nam, but
today's achievements are equally noteworthy and
the heroism remains unsurpassed.
For six consecutive years the 301st Rescue
Squadron, stationed at Homestead Air Force Base,
has been designated "best reserve unit in the air
rescue business," and this year recognized for
During 36 years of accident-free flying the unit
has received the Air Force Outstanding Unit Award
and after the past six competitions won the Albert
P. Loening Trophy for the best reserve rescue unit.
Some 250 men and women fly their missions of
mercy over the heads of South Floridians, and often
save lives just offshore as well as half-a-world away.
The most recent combat stint was in Desert
Storm where men like Technical Sergeant Paul
Miller, a crew member on an MH-60 helicopter,
were based only 30 miles from Iraq's border and
picked up a downed F-14 pilot only 40 miles from
Combat rescue missions, however, are but one
category of the duties with which the 301st'is
tasked. As needed, the unit also must search for,
locate and recover USAF and Department of
Defense personnel; provide rescue and recovery
support for U.S. manned flight operations; provide
rescue and recovery assistance for foreign
governments and international civil aviation when
directed, and provide humanitarian and disaster
relief operations when directed.
Men and women of the 301st RQS can stretch
the definitions when it means a real-life test of their
abilities to perform their primary function.
A year ago the unit got quick approval for a
humanitarian mission when sick and stranded
whales were discovered at Key West. Two of the
animals were flown in HH-3 helicopters to the Mimi
Seaquarium where they received medical treatment.
Later, the squadron relocated two recovered
whales to a short-finned pilot whale about 150
miles east of Miami.
That was good practice for the day when a
helicopter team was practicing static line
deployment. The air base was advised of a capsized
boat near Ocean Reef and the Coast Guard had no
surface vessels in the area and no aircraft was
available. The H-3 helicopter returned to the base,
gathered necessary equipment and within 25
minutes of getting the initial call two parajumpers
were in the water helping four victims into the
Not all rescues are quick and easy. Two HH-3E
choppers needed five and a half hours and two mid-
air refuelings to reach a vessel 400 miles off the
South Carolina coast. When the Coast Guard

received the distress signal two Air Force units were
dispatched because they could refuel in mid-air and
had jump and SCUBA rescue experts.
A skipper suffered a fractured skull and severe
eye injuries when the boom on his 40-foot sailboat
snapped. Others aboard called for help and the HH-
3E choppers responded.
The initial rescue attempt was aborted because
of darkness, 30 mph winds and 20-foot seas. With
the sailboat's 70-foot mast swinging wildly the
chopper was unable to approach closely but two
rescue specialists, Master Sergeant John Kellerman
and Technical Sergeant Gabe Gelves were lowered
from the chopper and reached the boat.
Zimri Smith, the yacht's injured captain, was
made secure in a one-man liferaft which the two
rescue specialists then swam 200-feet from the boat
so that he could be lifted to the chopper.
Since high winds in the Carolinas would have
endangered the chopper and its crew as well as the

Riviera Beach says bon voyage to maritime museum
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
RIVIERA BEACH A two-year struggle to
build a maritime museum complex in Riviera Beach
ended last month, when the Riviera Beach city
council voted to withdraw its support for the
City officials had been concerned that
Community Redevelopment dollars, which would
have guaranteed a bond issue for the maritime
museum's construction, would have been directed
towards covering the museum's losses.
Riviera Beach City Manager Toni Smith wrote a
letter to maritime museum director John Grant
stating that he had seen no evidence that the Palm
Beach Maritime Museum had submitted a market
study of the project requested by the city several
months ago, and based on that he was going to
recommend that the city council not approve the $2
million dollar bond guarantee.
Mr. Grant responded by saying, "We gave them
a market study over a year ago. Marge Confrey
[city council chair] wanted a new feasibility study
that would have cost an additional 25-40 thousand
dollars. Had the city council chosen a lender, then
we could have raised the money for the study."
Instead, Grant related, the Community
Redevelopment Agency (CRA) held a special
meeting to approve a bond underwriter, at which
time, the agency tabled the recommendation and
instead passed a resolution to instruct the city to
readvertise for the position.
"I think that it was a diversionary tactic to get
rid of the museum in order to ease the city's
financial problems," Grant said.
Gerald Adams, deputy city manager, summed
up part of the city's hesitancy to support the
maritime museum project: "I found it difficult that
this could have been a genuine maritime museum
without the waterfront access."
However, the maritime museum may have
found new life in West Palm Beach, as that city's

commissioners will be asked to approve a two-acre
site in Currie Park for the museum.
West Palm Beach commission president David
Smith said he likes the idea of a maritime museum
and IMAX theatre proposed for the Currie Park
area, but has some concerns about the impact of
such a project on the park's greenspace.
"The fact is that the museum would require
some sort of parking, and I don't want any more of
Currie Park proper turned into parking," said
Grant said he would enlist city help to buy land
for parking across Flagler Drive, which would not
affect the park. A $3 million, 500-seat IMAX
theatre would also be built across the street, a
concept which has been successful in other cities
across the country.
In addition, Grant related that the location along
Flagler's waterfront would allow the park to serve as
a terminus for a ferry which would take visitors to

Delray to ask for 'no wake' zone at marina
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
DELRAY HARBOR After complaints over
fuel spills caused by boat wakes at the Delray
Harbor Club on the Intracoastal Waterway (ICW)
the city of Delray Beach is asking the state to
change the area to an idle speed/no wake zone.
At the Delray Beach city council meeting last
month, the city passed a resolution requesting that
the Palm Beach County Commission ask the state
Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to
investigate the feasibility of such a zone. DNR
recently instituted a whole new set of speed zones
for Palm Beach County, but the Harbor Club's
dockmaster said her fueling facility was overlooked
when the changes were put into effect.
Dockmaster Jena Willoughby said the current
signs posted on the ICW near the Harbor Club,
which is located on the west side of the waterway
just north of the Linton Boulevard Bridge, are
confusing to boaters. She noted that the current

"slow speed/minimum wake" postings are being
defined differently by each boater.
Willoughby stated, "My fuel dock is 250-feet
long. We need an idle speed zone at least for the
fueling facility and the boat ramp next door-- for
the protection of my customers we need people
going slow by here."
Delray Beach City Manager David Harden
concurred, stating, "We had the fire department
look into the situation and witness the effects the
wakes had during fueling, and determined that a no
wake zone should be reinstated in the vicinitiy of
the fueling station."
Willoughby remarked that recently a large boat
traveling at 10 knots producing a two-foot wake
impacted a 28-foot Mako that was on the dock at
the time, rocking the boat for two minutes. Afraid
of "gasoline tank burp," where gas can shoot
straight out of the fill and into the water or onto
people, attendants were forced to take the gas
nozzle out of the boat until the wake had subsided.

Scuba dive convoy set for Bimini
Skip Commagere, mentor of Force E dive
shops, has announced the tenth annual renewal
of his convoy to Bimini Saturday, Aug. 22, with
an early-bird departure Friday, with return
groups slated for Sunday, Monday and Tuesday,
all with leader boats.
Both power and sailboats are invited, and the
wind boats will be paired in their own groups.
The cruise is designed to encourage
neophytes to participate while also appealing to
experienced Gulf Stream skippers because of
the social amenities. Both segments benefit with
the old-timers lending their guidance to crews
unfamiliar with the stream or Bahamian entry
Participants can pre-register at Force E stores
from Fort Lauderdale to North Palm Beach, or
phone 305-426-4120 for information.
An eight-page program is available, and
there will be a captain's meeting August 18 at
the Sheraton Hotel, Boca Raton. The captain's
meeting normally is mandatory for all
participating skippers. There also will be a post
-cruise reunion party in Boca Raton slated for
Skippers frequently request information
about piloted cruises or simply ask about
cruising companions. Fort Lauderdale Boat
Club is one excellent source of information and
cruise activity. Force E offers another option,
while events like the Kissimmee Boat-a-Cade
cruises offer added flavor.
For most Bimini cruises North Bimini's Alice
Town is the destination with the Big Game Club,
Blue Water, Complete Angler or Admiral as
shore headquarters. All are available for cruise
members. Force E skippers, however, also can
headquarter at Honeymoon Harbor, Gun Cay,
south of where the fleet will be on the hook,
although there is camping on the beach with no
There is mandatory equipment to be carried
aboard each boat and some recommended gear.
Remember, however, that one needn't dive to
participate. There's great fishing, and most
visitors like to visit Alice Town.

18 Waterfront News August 1992 Nautical Dining
Hollywood restaurant needs to create an identity
By JENNIFER HEIT-ZIEGLER
Waterfront News reviewer
The problem with Ruffy's is that it seems to be
suffering from an identity crisis.
Management appears uncertain as to who
they're targeting: the casual, burger-buying crowd,
or those willing to pay high prices to sit on the
We just don't know. Either way, Ruffy's craves
It's not that the scenery isn't effective the
waterfront view is dazzling as always nor is the
service poor or the place unattractive, or for that
Mainly, the menu is the source of confusion, for
Ruffy's lacks a middle ground for those seeking
more than a burger, but less than a $20 meal.
Pondering the selections, it's also uncertain what
the speciality here is supposed to be.
There's a reason for all this disparity. Currently
manager Gus Passarelli is trying to buy the place, so
the lack of commitment by current ownership
reflects the haphazard identity. Given the right set
up, I get the feeling that Passarelli would make a
few needed changes.
Clearly, the best values can be found on the
back of the menu listed under "Ruffys Baskets."
Priced from $5.95 to $9.95 for a New York sirloin
steak sandwich, here is an array of items of the
luncheon variety that can also be ordered for

with chili or without ($3.40-$3.95), baby back ribs
($9.95), chicken pita ($6.95) and a fried clam
basket ($8.25). French fries and cole slaw
accompany all baskets.
One guest enjoyed Ruffy's Favorite Fish Fry
($7.95), fresh dolphin drenched in batter and deep
fried. However, he was miffed that the other
seafood selections were so cost prohibitive.
There's nine seafood dishes including the New
England clam bake ($19.95), Bouillabaisse,
($18.95), Norwegian salmon ($16.95) and red
snapper ($15.95) and a fresh catch of the day
Pasta entrees ranged from $9.95 for fettuccine
Alfredo to shrimp scampi ($16.95) with not a whole
lot offered in between.

vinegarette. There's also a good selection of house
I ordered the day's catch, a large dolphin filet
stuffed with a crabmeat breading and smothered in
a white cream sauce ($16.95).Although the filet was
quite large, it was bland and uninteresting, as was
the sauce capping it off.
On the other hand, the linguini with clam sauce
($9.95) was quite spicy and spiked with many fresh
clams. However, the menu should warn
unsuspecting patrons of the dish's punch.
What all of us really enjoyed was the obviously
homemade Key lime pie creamy, tart and
wonderfully sweet all at the same time.

The unique Tropic Rover sailed where the winds blew her
By HANK JONES
waterfront News writer
Tropic Rover, under full sail in the old
photographs, brought back memories of another
world and another time. This was a vessel, Fort
Lauderdale born and bred, that cruised Bahamas
waters 30 years ago. Even today she remains
The Miami News for Sunday, July 29, 1962,
carries the report of Tropic Rover's maiden voyage.
Broward was a simpler, more relaxed community in
Capt. Sid Hartshorne, Tropic Rover's creator,
designer, builder, skipper and owner, is a Fort
Lauderdale man who still resides in the city.
He first conceived of his vessel while skipper of
an island freighter in the South Pacific during
World War II. He began to study catamarans,
became intrigued by them, and during the early
'50s built Tropic Bird, a 72-foot catamaran he
sailed out of Miami for several years carrying
passengers on day cruises.
By 1960 he was ready to start construction of
Tropic Rover on an empty, tree-fringed lot fronting
on the New River's south fork. The 145-foot
catamaran with 38-foot beam, tall masts and
gleaming white sails would be the world's largest
sailing catamaran when launched and the record
may stand today.
Underway, with sails set, she was a picture with
white paint and accent trim emphasizing clean lines.
Her design and construction provided great
lateral stability. She was a solid platform, not
heeling even under strong beam winds.
Hartshorne and his work crew built the vessel
quite literally from the bare ground up -
laminating wood and curving it at the site to
conform to the design lines. Work went on as
weather permitted, without protection from sun or
rain. Only tools were protected in a small shop/shed
at one side of the property. An old Ford pickup
truck provided the project's ground transportation.
But if construction conditions were primitive by
today's standards, the work was meticulous.
Twin canoes, each 9 feet wide, were erected with

Bahamas cruises to remote Out Islands, now
termed Family Islands, are no new thing but they
were less common 30 years ago. Tropic Rover
underwent sea trials in waters off Broward County,
and the inaugural voyage originated at West End,
Grand Bahama Island.
"Will-O'-The-Wind" cruises was the description
applied to the itinerary, for Capt. Hartshome took
Tropic Rover to such ports as the wind favored.
These were islands of the Abaco chain, Berry
Islands, Eleuthera, Andros, Nassau and Grand
Bahama's Freeport, then a fledgling community.
On-board accommodations ranged from berths

accommodations were priced from $285 to $350
and included hearty meals.
Passengers could volunteer to help work the
ship during days at sea, or relax on deck, including
a net deck forward suspended between the canoes
and open to the sea below. Forward in the starboard
canoe passengers could study the sea through
viewing ports five feet below the surface as Tropic
Rover plied the shallow waters of the Bahamas.
At many ports Tropic Rover was the largest
vessel ever to call, and visits became an occasion for
island residents. Depending on wind, weather and
the mood on board the skipper might sail through
the night under starry skies when some passengers
opted to sleep on deck. At ports more inviting with
their night life the big catamaran would tie up and
serve as a hotel while passengers ventured ashore.
Underway, there was a comfortable dining salon
and lounge should the weather be inclement, but
rain would more likely see Capt. Hartshorne point

Notice to mariners:
Some present actions by Congress and the courts that have future meanings
By JOHN B. ANDERSON
atefront News columnist
There were two noteworthy recent developments
affecting boat owners and those who own
waterfront property. The first was final House
action on H.R.11, a revenue measure which
involved everything from enterprise zones designed
to provide aid to beleaguered cities to repeal of the
luxury tax on boats costing over $100,000. A
leader in the cause had been Fort Lauderdale's
Congressman Clay Shaw whose separate bill to
repeal the tax had attracted 181 cosponsors.
Although the President had recommended repeal in
his January budget message, he had vetoed an
earlier bill in March which repealed the luxury lax
but increased marginal tax on upper income
individuals. This time the repeal is insulaed from a
presidential veto because he too wants the urban
enterprise aid provisions it contains, and the
offending changes in marginal tax rates have been
removed. The Senate will'follow suit because its
own repeal of the boat tax has already passed that
body where it had been appended to another
measure on unemployment compensation.
A Joint Economic Committee report released
earlier by among others, Florida's junior Senator
Connie Mack, claimed the tax had already cost the
federal government $15 million in revenues and the
loss of 7,600 jobs. In his floor speech Congressman
Clay Shaw argued in support of passage of this
legislation that 19,000 workers had lost their jobs as
a result of the tax. Presumably he was factoring in
indirect job loss affecting other industries and
service establishments in addition to those who are
engaged directly. in the building of boats.. A
powerful case can be made that the boat tax, while it .
made some wealthy people pay more taxes, clearly-
had a negative effect overall on revenues because of
lost imcome taxes from unemployed workers. It
would also have a negative effect on expenditures
of the federal budget because of higher costs or
unemployment benefits, food stamps, and other
social welfare programs. Not everyone was happy,
of course. One member from Mississippi 'asserted
that it represented "taking a tax off millionaire boat
buyers and putting it on middle class boat owners
with the diesel fuel tax." Other urban Congressmen
from areas like Detroit, St. Louis and New York
City's Harlem, called it just "another raid on the
treasury by the rich and famous" which "does not
help the poor." It simply "robs middle-class
Americans to give to the rich." The 55 votes against
final passage of the Revenue Act of 1992 included
only one member from Florida, Democrat Tom
The significance of the repeal is that in the
future when so-called "consumption taxes" are
revisited, as they surely will be, the boat tax will not
be a likely candidate for resurrection. The
empirical evidence of job loss in the boat building
industry coupled with the growing general fear of
the de-industrialization of America will be a strong
The other recent action occurring at the
national level of great significance to owners of
waterfront property came from the U.S. Supreme
Court. The state of North Carolina enacted a
Beachfront Management Act. It forbade
development in a coastal zone where two years
earlier two lots had been purchased for almost a
million dollars. The owner, arguing that he had
purchased the land on the barrier island for the
express purpose of erecting two houses, argued that
his constitutional rights had been violated. The
Fifth Amendment states that the government cannot
take private property without "just compensation."
The question was in regulating the uses of
beachfront property is this a "taking" which should
entitle the property owner to compensation in the
form of money damages from the state? The U.S.
Supreme Court decided 70 years ago that the
regulation of a person's property coulf be a.,
"'taking" that was compensable.. However, it .has
never established a brightlirie test 'of 'where'
regulation ends and taking begins. For example,
any owner who has to respect a setback line in
constructing a house has been regulated in the use
of his property, but unless unreasonable it would
not be ruled a compensble taking of his land.
Before their latest decision many people were
hoping that the Supreme Court would bring some
order and coherence to the "takings" law. Just how
far can the state go in land use regulation before
they have deprived you of economic benefits so
substantial that they owe you money. In a rapid
growth area like South Florida and particularly one
with sensitive ecosystems in coastal areas which can
be destroyed by overdevelopment this is a part of
the law that needs refinement and clarity. It also
involves striking a balance between public interests
and those of individual landowners. In passing the
South Carolina law the Legislature had made these
findings: the barrier island (on which construction
was banned) protected life and property by
dissipating wave energy and acting as a storm
barrier, provided the basis for a tourism industry
which was two-thirds of South Carolina's annual
tourist revenue, provided a habitat for several
threatened or endangered species. Finally, it also
found that many miles of its beaches were critically
The U.S. Supreme Court found that the South
Carolina court had erred in simply finding that
because the Beachfront Management Act provided
a use seriously harming the public no regulatory
taking entitling the property owner to
compensation had occurred.
If the construction has deprived the owner of all
"economically viable use of his property," (and he
had alleged that unless he could build, the lots were
totally valueless) it was a taking that under both the
Fifth arid Fourteenth Amendments required the
state to pay him damages of $1.2 million. To
escape that liability the state would be obligated to
prove that when the owner took title the state laws
then in. effect regarding property and nuisance
would forbid his use of the land to erect dwellings.
I believethe decision. was eminently: fair to the
property owner in this case. Its larger significance
lies in the warning shot fired across the bow of
legislative bodies: Don'tfthink you' can'"irsh in with
growth management legislation after the growth has
already occurred-and expect' retroactive appli'ction.

SMALL BOAT LAW: Illusory agency
By HERB MARKOW
Special to the Waterfront News
An ad by Southeastern International Yachts
(SEIY) offered a 32-foot air conditioned yacht
which attracted Black, but he required also that a
generator be installed. Fowke made the sale for
SEIY with a closing October 1st. On September
30th, SEIY contracted with Marine Engineering
Specialists (MES) for installation of an air
conditioner and generator. When SEIY became
insolvent, MES sued Black for payment, as also
Fowke as Black's agent.
It appeared at trial that MES, expecting
payment from SEIY, never asked who was the yacht
owner. MES never heard of Black but believed the
installations were for Fowke, and it tried to find the
owner after SEIY went broke. Fowke testified the
two units were part of the yacht sale price, and he
knew MES' bill was outstanding, but he didn't tell
Black about the bill.
Black never heard of MES, he didn't discuss the
air conditioner with Fowke because he assumed it
was in the yacht, and he didn't instruct Fowke on a
generator dealer. He never had notice someone was
providing services to the vessel.
Held: for Black. To sustain an apparentagency
against Black, MES had to show: 1) a representation

by principal Black, 2) a reliance on that by third
party MES, and 3) a change of position by MES to
its detriment. MES didn't show Black did any act or
made any representation to lead MES to believe
Fowke was Black's agent, failing which MES' theory
of Black's liability by apparent agency collapsed.
An apparent agency rests on an appearance created
by the principal and not by agents who often
ingeniously create the appearance of authority by
their own acts.

parts of the country like South Florida which still
project the kind of future growth that can be
environmentally hazardous unless controlled, we
have something to worry about in addition to
international treaties on global warming and
biodiversity. Do we have the body of state and local
land use law now that U.S. courts will be looking at
some day in the distant future? If it doesn't exist,
state and local may require deep pockets.to pay for
those errors of omission.

Antique tackle collectors come to Broward
The Florida Antique Tackle Collectors will be
holding their show for the first time in the Ft.
Lauderdale area. It will be held at the Florida Expo
Center, 1125 Banks Road, Margate. Show times are
9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, August 22, and 9 a.m. to
noon on Sunday, August 23. On display at the
show will be private collections of antique fishing
lures, reels, rods and other angling-related
memorabilia some of the items dating back to"
the early 1800's. Also, for sale will be hundreds of
old lures and reels.
The highlight of the show is the antique tackle
auction held on Sunday at noon. The public is
invited to bring their old tackle for a free appraisal
and then consign it in the auction if they wish. The
auction is attended by over 100 of the state's top
collectors and usually results in record prices being
Florida's history is rich with individuals and
small companies that were involved in early lure
making. These cottage industries sprang up all over
Florida in the 1920's and 1930's. The popularity of
bass fishing in the area with the locals and with the
northern visitors created the demand for these lures.
Often these lures were sold off the front porch of
the maker or out of the trunk of his car. Their
apparent workmanship and folk art quality make
them highly prized among collectors today.
The first commercially available lures were
made in Michigan and in Ohio. Heddon and
Pflueger dominated the market from the early
1900's to the 1940's. Other companies like
Shakespeare, Creek Chub Bait Co., South Bend and
I Ati~4e Fi4k4# T~de
Paw-Paw also enjoyed a share of this market. The
story goes that the invention of the first wooden
lure was .done so by accident. James Heddon was
sitting alongside of his favorite lake in Dowiagiac,
Michigan. He tossed a piece of wood he had been

whittling on into the lake and it was immediately
struck by a bass. And so an industry was conceived.
The history of fishing reels goes back a little
further than that of the wooden plugs. The earliest
ones being made in England and exported to the
United States. These simple winches were used to
store the line when fishing with a live minnow or a
tin squid. It was American know-how that took
these primitive devices and made them suitable for
casting. Kentucky holds the honor of being the
location where the first American reels were made.
In the early 1800's, watch-makers and jewelers were
the only ones that had the tools and the talent to
make these works of art. Names like Meek, Milam,
Talbot, Sage and Gayle can be found on them.
The interests of tackle collectors spans the
whole range of angling related items. Although most
collectors are interested in lures and reels, there are
a large number that seek only split bamboo rods,
fishing creels, old catalogs, and old fishing
tournament patches and medals.
Anyone interested in viewing this part of
American history is welcome to attend the show.
Admission charge is $2 for adults and children are
admitted free. For more information about the
show or about consigning old tackle in the auction,

Fishing classic anglers brave rain to take home $36,900
LIGHTHOUSE POINT The rainy weather
did not dampen the spirits of the 634 anglers who
fished on the 180 boats entered in the eighth
annual South Florida Fishing Classic, June 27 and
These soggy fishermen knew that the heaviest
dolphin, wahoo or king worth $10,000 each could
strike at anytime during the two-day tournament
which covers four South Florida inlets from Miami
to Palm Beach.
Fishing out of Port Everglades in Fort
Lauderdale, Bart Collins, of Pembroke Pines,
weighed in a 50.8-pound wahoo on Saturday and
.had to endure a long day of fishing on Sunday
waiting to be named the $10,000 wahoo winner.
Collins fished with Glenn Hargrave and Don Gibbs
aboard Cutthroat, a 20-foot Aquasport, which was
almost hit by a Navy submarine just after catching
Mike Sessions, of Coral Gables, won $10,000
for his 46-pound dolphin that bent the gaff straight
when it was boated. He fished with Tom Lehman,
Butch Rice and Chris Schultz on a 28-foot Bertram
Dreamy out of Government Cut in Miami.
King mackerel was added as a species in the
Classic this year, and Carl Torresson, of Hollywood,
caught a 35-pounder to take home the final
$10,000 from the Miami inlet.
Torresson was a late but lucky addition to the
crew of Coo-Ya, a 32-foot Wellcraft, which
included owner Richard Grant, Carl Patregnani and
Jeff D'Amico. The crew was also lucky because the
kingfish got caught in the outrigger lines and
dangled over the water for a short time before they
pulled it into the boat.
Besides the top $30,000, another $6,900 was
spread out over the combination prize, second and
third places and daily inlet winners.
The combination prize winner was JRC, with
Robert Case, Mark Laria and Jay Bogaards. They
weighed in three dolphin totalling 87.4 pounds -
34.2, 25.3 and 27.9 pounds on Saturday. This
same fishing team won the 1990 Pompano Beach
Fishing Rodeo by catching all large dolphin.
Second place finishers winning $600 each
included Allen Carpenter on Reel Deduction, 40.4-
pound wahoo; Dick Tanner on Marlin 35, 36.5-
pound dolphin, and Lance Johnson on Brute, 25-
pound king mackerel.
Third places worth $300 each went to George
Kinney on Gumby, 37.8-pound wahoo; Bill Wright
on Shin Splints, 35.2-pound dolphin, and John
Schulz on Makaira, 23.6-pound king mackerel.
Money raised by the Fishing Classic supports
conservation projects such as artificial reefs and
scientific/educational marine research studies. More
than $200,000 has been donated to saltwater
environmental concerns since the first Fishing
Classic in 1985.

Shipwrecks of Florida
- a book review
By BRYAN BROOKS
waterfront News columnist
Whether you are an accomplished marine
archaeologist, or someone with a desire to learn
something about the maritime history of Florida,
Steven D. Singer's newly published book,
Shipwrecks of Florida, will have something,
somewhere between its first and last page for you.
Shipwrecks of Florida calls itself a comprehensive
listing, telling of over 2,000 vessels that have gone
astray since the first European stepped ashore -
though Singer personally feels there may be as
many as 4,000 to 5,000 ships out there somewhere.
With over 140 illustrations, including photographs,
it is certainly what it calls itself, a comprehensive
listing, and a whole lot more.
Singer's introduction starts by touching on the
first Spanish caravels that foundered in a storm and
slammed into a Florida reef or sand bar some
whose holds were loaded with gold and silver.
Florida at that time was far removed from the
concrete and air conditioned condominium that it is
today. In the book we see the Florida early seamen
found, a desolate peninsula covered with trees,
swamps, mosquitos and Indians.
Singer tells of Spain's two, possibly three,
different fleets that came together each year in
Havana from different parts of its new empire.
Sailing together the fleets would stand a better
chance against the upstart English pirates that
wandered the high seas, preying on them for the
treasures they carried back to the mother country.
In those early days of Florida's history, the
combined fleet would start its journey up the
Gulfstream, which slips northward between the
western Bahamas and the east coast of Florida.
Because of the crude navigational instruments
available at that time and the tropical storms that

often intercepted the fleets, we learn why many of
Spain's treasure ships lie buried deep in sand
submerged off the Florida coast. Singer also tells of
Florida's important, early ports, telling us of the
ships, their cargos and the routes they used.
Shipwrecks of Florida breaks Florida up into
different geographical sections, with corresponding
chapters listing the shipwrecks that occurred within
those sections. Each of the shipwrecks is listed by
name, size and whatever history that Singer's
research has provided. A separate chapter deals with
shipwrecks having unknown dates and locations.
There is also a chapter on Civil War and World War
II wrecks, showing that Florida's rich maritime
history continues right up to modem times.
Locked inside the book, Singer shares with us
some recovered, rich, original narratives from
period newspapers and magazines with printed
accounts of some of the different ships that slid
below Florida's teasing, but sometimes dangerous,
waters. The accounts are written by the fortunate
souls who somehow were able to survive the
sinking, the weather, lack of water and hostile
Indians. It is exciting to read the historic accounts,
and it is a little eerie when you realize that the
people in those days crawled ashore to such a
different Florida from the overdeveloped piece of
asphalt and concrete that we know as the Florida of
today. You find yourself wishing for a time warp so
you could yell out to those early seamen crawling
ashore to take a left at the light and find the pizza
parlor that sits there today.
S Perhaps the best part of the book is found in its
appendix. There, Singer's background as a treasure
hunter comes out, as he explains in detail how to
search for and salvage the different wrecks available
today to the persistent explorer. In this chapter he
will saturate and satisfy every technical sleuths

needs, covering such modern aids as
magnetometers, sidescan sonar, underwater metal
detectors, underwater video systems, dredges and air
He also brings us back to reality, delving into
the laws of salvage, explaining the bureaucratic
nightmares one encounters when trying to go about
the process of applying for the different permits
needed to do salvage work on a wreck site today.
In that chapter, called Rights to Wrecks, Singer
explains the Federal Abandoned Shipwreck Act and
the Florida Historical Resources Act. Singer
understands why treasure hunters line up on one
side and archaeologists on the other. But he feels
that somehow there should be a common ground
where both parties could get along and work
together for the good of both.
There is a chapter in the appendix that explains
wreck and artifact identification. This chapter helps
you identify what the artifacts are you have found.
We learn that its size and shape dictate what it might
be, and from what period of history the recovered
artifact might have come. This chapter fully covers
the different items one might encounter at a wreck
site, such as cannons, anchors, rigging, wood,
sheathing, fastenings, glass, china, pottery, ballast
and of course the desired goodies every treasure
hunter dreams of coins.
Another chapter in the appendix explains how
to conserve the artifacts taken from salt water.
Shipwrecks of Florida is not laden with hard to
understand terms and academic phrases. Singer
wasn't trying to impress anybody when he wrote the
book, only present it as good reference reading for
the serious student of shipwrecks, the marine.
archaeologist, or the novice SCUBA diver who
might be curious about what lies below the waters
of the sunshine state.

Boaters' rights group launches membership drive
Concerned Boaters: The National Water Rights
Association is launching a national membership drive
as a conclusion to the group's conference, Boaters:
The Next Endangered Species, last winter.
Some 200 federal, state and local government
representatives, attorneys, lobbyists and boat owners
gathered to learn that boaters are embattled by pointless
regulation, redundant and confusing laws, and
David Slade, director of the Coastal States
Organization, Washington, D.C., keynoted the two-
day conference, hosted by Concerned Boaters in
Stuart, Florida, He cautioned the group that the public
trust doctrine is a two-edged sword that can be used
both for and against traditional access for boats.
Nearly two dozen speakers in six panels probed
the growing numbers of regulations prohibiting
traditional uses of boats on the navigable waters of the
"The public trust doctrine is older than nations and
defends all sorts of uses of public trust waters and
beaches," said Slade, "including pushing a baby
carriage, washing clothes, collecting shellfish. My
favorite use is 'just being there.'"
Other speakers, including Richard Roach, Harbor
Management Liaison for the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, Northeast Division (Boston) and Dr.
Gustavo Antonini, University of Florida, agreed that
many local and state regulations were being passed in
response to perceived problems that do not exist.
Many cities and counties also attempt to regulate
waters that are controlled by the federal government,
Lt. Cmdr. Howard Van Houten, of the Waterways
Management Section, 7th Coast Guard District, Miami,
assured the group: "The right to navigate upon the
federal waters of the United States is a right enjoyed by
all members of the public and protected by federal law.
"The right to navigation is superior to all other
interests on a waterway except where limited by acts of
Congress of the states acting for the public good."

The Coast Guard's main concern, said Van
Houten, is that "attempts to control a relatively small
segment of the maritime population, what some view
as the 'problem' liveaboard, will adversely impact the
rights to navigation of much broader segments of the
Additional panels probed issues including right to
control the water, liveaboards, attorneys addressing
current and recent cases, methods of addressing
problems facing boaters, local updates from
individuals around the country, and ways to encourage
media coverage of the issues.
In other business, Concerned Boaters, a Stuart-
based national group, and the California-based
National Water Rights Association ratified a merger to
become Concerned Boaters: The National Water
Rights Association, with its headquarters in Stuart.
The new non-profit organization is the only group
in the country working to alert boat owners to state and
local laws and rules stopping them from using their
boats. Concerned Boaters' mission is to inform people
of their rights and responsibilities on the navigable
waters of the U.S., and to protect those rights.
Annual membership in the non-profit, all volunteer
organization is $25. Members receive a handbook and
six 20-40 page bi-monthly newsletters. Please contact
