Marine community leaders hopeful
of boating industry rebound
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
Marine Industries Association (MIA) officers from the
tri-county area are predicting a more profitable winter
boating season this year in south Florida, despite the
impacts of an economic recession and hurricane Andrew.
Jim Bronstien, president of Palm Beach County's MIA,
stated that this is one of that county's busiest boating
seasons ever, with boat purchases, service activity and
storage activity all quite lively.
Bronstein declared, "Everything seems to be on an
uptick people are adjusting to the changing times and
making time for leisure."
John Sprague, vice-president of the MIA-PBC, added,
"New boat sales are picking up, and once sales begin to rise
all the boatyards and suppliers pick up right along with it."
Mark Masciarotte, president of the Florida Marine
Industries Association, said that the winter boating season
will be impacted by Hurricane Andrew. He related that
marinas and storage facilities damaged by the hurricane are
being rebuilt under prior permits, and it's just a matter of
time and money as to when things will return to normal.
Masciarotte noted, for example, that the Ocean Reef
Club in Key Largo, which benefits from winter boating
traffic, sustained serious damage from the hurricane and it's
hard to estimate how much of the facility will be repaired
by the time the season is in full gear.
In terms of winter boating traffic, Masciarotte added, "I
don't see any difference in the number of people coming
down unless the economy doesn't rebound; we'd like to see
an increase over last year, because last year a lot of people
just didn't come down."
*ASK BIG AL ..........................7
Dade County, which has a shorter winter boating
season than the other two counties (January to April), is
expected to have a better season this year.
David Ray, executive director of the MIA of greater
Miami, remarked, "I think by the time the winter boating
season is here things will be back to normal; several
businesses were wiped out by the storm, but all of them are
rebuilding as fast as they can."
Ray predicts that marine industry earnings will be up
this year, as most people will begin spending their
insurance money at the beginning of 1993.
"We're looking for a very healthy increase in terms of
boating sales, accessories, and usage in 1993 as opposed to
1992," Ray stated.
In Broward County, the winter market will be tested

early by the upcoming fall boat show in Fort Lauderdale.
Frank Herhold, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida, stated, "I think
we'll know a lot more about the winter season after the
boat show; the show is virtually sold out, and there are a
number of dealers who have learned how to sell in a
Herhold has been concerned about the negative impact
the luxury tax has had on the sale of new boats and is
hoping that it will be repealed shortly.
"The effect of the luxury tax on boats is that new boat
sales are down 75 percent," said Herhold. "It's not just a tax
issue, it's a jobs issue and this tax has impacted the south
Florida marine economy significantly boats purchased in
other countries are not subject to a luxury tax."

Boat Show avoids affects
of Hurricane Andrew
BOAT SHOW, FROM page 1
The Convention Center portion of the Boat Show will
have a new twist this year with the creation of the
International Sport Fishing Exposition. Fishing has
become one of the most popular recreational activities
worldwide. Whether fly, bass, backwater or offshore, the
sport of fishing has as many different styles as products.
The Sport Fishing Expo will showcase the vast number of
rods, reels, fishing resorts, etc., available for consumers.
Demand for exhibit space has increased significantly in
the last ninety days requiring an expansion of the Yacht
Builders & Designers tent along with two additional exhibit
areas. This continued expansion will make the 1992 edition
the largest presentation in the show's 33-year history.
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show features
over 1,200 boats ranging in size from 8-foot inflatables to
150-foot mega yachts. One ticket is good for the Boat
Show and the Sport Fishing Expo. Admission is $8.00 for
adults; 2-day pass $14.00; Children (6-12) $2.00; and
under 6 free.
Parking is available at the Port Everglades parking
facility with free shuttle service running continuously to
the Bahia Mar location. Limited parking is also available
throughout the general area.

Special to the Waterfront News
Was your property damaged or destroyed by a disaster
in 1992? And was your area designated a federal disaster area
by the President of the United States? If so, you may be
entitled to claim that loss to reduce your taxable income,
says the nation's largest income tax preparation firm.
You may deduct your loss on either your 1992 or 1991
income tax return. Should you choose the latter option,
you generally will have until April 15, 1993, to amend
your 1991 return, according to sources at H&R Block. Be
sure you claim the loss on the return for the year that
provides you the maximum tax advantage. If you claim the
loss on your 1991 return, attach a signed statement that
lists the date of the disaster and the location (city or town,
county, and state) of the property. If you claim the loss on
your 1991 return, you have 90 days after filing in which to
change your election.
Even though it may not be difficult to prove that a
natural disaster occurred, you should collect evidence that
shows the damage to your property. If your return is audited
by the IRS, you will need records of the amount of damage,
the value of your property before and after the disaster, the
cost of repairs to your property ( if you use the cost of
repairs as a measure of the loss in value of your property),
and the cost of your property. A written appraisal of the
value of your property after the damage also may prove

helpful; it is not, however, absolutely essential.
Your deductible loss is either the cost of your property
or its decrease in market value. Your deductible loss is
decreased by any insurance reimbursement.
You may have received a grant under the Disaster
Relief and Emergency Assistance Act. Grant amounts are
not taxable. However, if the grant was made to reimburse
you for a specific loss, your deductible loss is reduced by
the grant amount. In addition, the deductible loss for your
personal-use property (any property not used for business or
investment purposes) is also reduced by $100 per casualty,
and by 10 percent of your adjusted gross income.
The casualty deduction generally can be claimed only
by the person who owns the property that was damaged.
However, you may deduct losses if you lease or rent
property and are liable to the owner for the loss amount.
If the deductible part of your unreimbursed losses
exceeds your income, you will pay no tax this year. In
certain cases you can carry all or part of the loss back three
years and apply it against your prior years' incomes until it
is used up. Or, you may choose to carry this amount
forward as many as 15 years, beginning on your 1993

6 Waterfront News November 1992 Letters
Docks and dolphins in Lauderdale Isles
To the Editor:
This letter is in response to your August and
September Waterfront News articles concerning the 5-foot
mooring setback proposal and defining dolphin poles. The
article says "complaining for years" but I prefer the words,
concerned for years. My concerns are centered on volume,
density, fire and rescue safety codes. The article said the
Marine Advisory Committee and I listened to 50 neighbors
who were opposed to the setback proposal (November 1,
1990). The figure here is a bit inflated. There were
approximately 35 people present. Only 25 signed the
roster, approximately 5 spoke on the issue. Of these, all
had current dock building (without permits) violations
Prior to the November 1, 1990 MAC meeting, I met
with George Counts and the Isles Association trustees on
October 11, 1990 and a unanimous vote was rendered to
support the 5-foot mooring setback. However, George
Counts, according to your article said his organization
rejected the suggested alterations. I suppose they changed
their minds since the October 1990 meeting.
When this was placed on the August 6, 1992 MAC
agenda again, it was a surprise to me as well. The MAC
already voted on it and issued a report. Maybe
Commissioner Parrish didn't receive it or disregarded it. A
letter from her to the MAC is what instigated this second
look now is she complaining or is she concerned? I did
sidestep the MAC based on Section 9 1/2 16MFAC Co.
Promotion and Development they function on an
advisory capacity only. Myself or any resident can make a
request to succeeding offices. No one person or committee
at this level has absolute authority.
What may not be knowrt or remembered is during the
MAC meetings in 1987 that formed Ord 88-17, the MAC
did recommend a 5-foot mooring setback. This was
overturned by the Zoning Board on March 2, 1988 at the
request of one "potential property owner." Yet no one
ordered or suggested the Zoning Board to take a second look
back then. They prevailed. This time around the MAC
prevailed. Do they take turns overruling each other?
My letters to Code Enforcement, public officials, and
the County Commission are correct but they're not solely
on docks and waterways some are letters-,of
appreciation concerning other issues.
So far as my having records that's true. But I'm
trying to figure out who says myself or any resident can't
request Code Enforcement to investigate a known or
suspected violation and who is denied access to public
records. Is there a group of people somewhere whose
permission is needed or an unlisted part of the county
government I don't know about? The Code Enforcement
Division periodically prints pamphlets to further educate
I found it necessary with some of the violations to
look at public records because of the denials of who had
permits, who didn't, who built according to code who
didn't. It seems to me some of these people cited for
violations get very indignant and belligerent, want to point
the finger and condemn everyone but themselves a self-
imposed hardship, easily avoided. Having public records
surely clears the air with the smoke they're blowing.
Access to public records is a public law not some special
privilege Code Enforcement issued solely for my benefit.
What prompted me to obtain and keep copies was that
the inspector involved at that time closed three of these
cases twice without compliance, had short memories in
fact so short that the records couldn't be found. Intervention
at this point, through the county administrator's office did
eventually produce these records. It wasn't to single out any
person or neighbor. My concerns have been known to Code
Enforcement and county government before these cases
surfaced and not restricted to docks and waterways or this
I want to point out here these violations I mentioned
were cited approximately May and June 1989 prior to
Building and Zoning Division being realigned and Code
Enforcement becoming a separate division with its own
director. Additionallly, I supported these efforts to have a

podium. I requested to speak again when she returned, but
wasn't acknowledged to speak again. In fact, as I recall, she
tried to squelch this discussion before it got started. I
suppose this might come under the old cliche don't
bother me with facts my mind's made up.
The public hearing has come and gone and the request
for 5-foot mooring setback is over for now, but there's a
good possibility the Broward Commission may have shot
themselves in the foot on this one.
Now on to the request about the dolphin poles.
Contrary to some beliefs and statements, unincorporated
Broward County has no definition of a dolphin pole,
mooring pole, or piling in the current zoning codes. One
resident managed to get a permit issued for the pilings left
in the 10-foot setback area. This is contrary to current Sec.
39-4. Permits to be Issued, and Sec. 39-145, Errors and
Violations which is a safety valve should a mistake occur.
One of the same inspectors mentioned previously was
involved in obtaining this permit.
A request from the Director of Code Enforcement to the
permit office seems to have been ignored and two more
permits were issued for pilings in the 10-foot setback. My
next obvious question is how can a permit be issued for
something that isn't and never was defined in the zoning
A request to the county attorney's office (3/10/92) to
discuss the mooring setback before it proceeded further was
never acknowledged. The Office of Planning on June 18,
1992 did recommend the mooring setback and create a
definition for mooring pilings. This indicates that the
County Zoning Board and County Office of Planning did
recommend yet the MAC said no.
At the August 6th MAC meeting, I wanted to ask
some questions about the county attorney's office and the
planning office, but Chairman John Grady censured public
discussion. As I recall, someone at the August 6th meeting
mentioned that after all, Ft. Lauderdale is the Venice of
America. That's true and I agree, but I don't recall seeing or
hearing that it's the Boatyard of America.

Question-I have been losing power on my engine
whenever I speed up. At idle speed I run fine, but
when I push the throttle forward I sort of lose
power. I noticed this after Andrew and wondered if
it could be water or dirt in the fuel from the
Answer-Check your filters. Water problems can
plug them up and a shortage of fuel getting to the
carburetor will cause this starvation you describe. It
is important to change the carburetor filters as they
clog easily, being very small. Get new ones as you
really can't clean them very well.
Question-My MerCruiser engine is running very
rough and misses often under power. My mechanic
says I need a tuneup and quoted me a price in the
I really feel that he is quite out of line on his
price and should I get another mechanic for
another opinion on what I need and should pay?
Answer-First it wouldn't hurt to get another
opinion on your problem. Actually, I would ask
what is your mechanic going to do in his tuneup?
Plugs, points, wires, adjust valves, clean carburetor
- this work can run into money depending on
what is done. A compression test will show up
problems on valves and rings and I don't know
when you changed your plugs, points, etc.
If it's a while, then new ones are needed.
Engines need maintenance and sooner than later
you must do some work on them.
Question-My fiberglass boat is pretty scratched
and bruised up from banging against the seawall
and dock. Some are deep scratches, some chips of
gelcoat gouged out. Also where snaps and clips
have been pulled ouit there are holes and cracks.
Can I fill these places in with martex or filler
and sand them smooth, or paint the boat all over?
Answer-To fill all your scratches and holes is
really a job. The color has to match the existing
color. Anyway you must fill all irregularities and
bad spots if you want the boat to look clean and
smooth. Paint will not cover deep cuts and gouges.
You must fill and sand before you paint
anyway. At least you can save trying to exactly
match the paint. Most of the new paints are self
leveling and do a great job. I would go that route.
Question-I have rot in my deck, deck supports
and in my cabin panels. I've used wood filler and
all kinds of compounds to no avail. I've discovered
more and more. Outside of stripping the cabin and
supports what can I do? Mort
Answer-Nothing you can do to your boat will
save it unless you remove the rotted wood and
replace it with treated wood. Decks, paneling and
beams that are deteriorated must be replaced.
If you have rot in your sandwich fiberglass
decks, they will buckle and crack. I hope your
stringers and motor supports are in good shape.
Boats that have this problem need extensive care or
complete rebuilding. Depending on the boat and its
value, I would consider if it pays to invest heavily in

Andrew blows hurricane
planning into next year
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
MIAMI With a flurry of body punches followed by
a couple of knockout blows Hurricane Andrew blew
hurricane planning into mid-1992 for marine interests.
June is the estimated date for publication of a hurricane
report and 1993 hurricane-planning information following
Sea Grant sponsored meetings at UM's Rosenstiel School
of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
Even a month after the storm authorities admitted
many vessels had not been recovered and there were
opinions voiced that some craft may have been smashed to
the point where identification would be impossible.
As a result of the meeting boating and marina facilities
will be assessed, according to Don Pybus of Florida Sea
Authorities and planners want to know what boaters did
in preparation for Andrew, what the results were and what
future expectations are.
At Black Point Marina, for example, 181 boats were
destroyed, many in pigeon-hole dry storage, and the report
was that three boats survived intact. Even the dry storage
facility collapsed and boats were stacked on top of each

Obviously, even prudent skippers couldn't assure
themselves of survival after this storm.

Meanwhile, the Florida Marine Patrol estimates that
from 500 to 1,000 boats were sunk in Biscayne Bay.
Even before plans for the future are formulated, it's
necessary to locate boats or wreckage, get a tally of the
condition of hulls, and also identify new hazards to
navigation that may have been introduced to local waters.
Identification of boats and the photo mapping are
expected to require the next three months so it will be

Even as this is written nature is writing a new chapter
for probers to consider: a northeaster attacking Amelia
Island, a north-Florida barrier island, is tearing away at the
beachfront with erosion that has brought the sea within 15
feet of residential structures as workers attempt to create
physical barriers to the waves.
Questions abound: How shall beachfront be utilized?
How should marine facilities be designed? How should
seawalls be constructed? Can buildings be designed to
withstand such storms? Can the shorelines be strengthened
to survive nature's buffeting?
Complicating the equation of strength of materials and
construction practices versus nature's power and weapons,
is the,increasing evidence that within the hurricane vicious
tornadoes were spawned, multiplying the.force of the wind.
At the same time, following warnings that the Miami
River was not a refuge for boats, there were reports that
space was available along the river both in water and
ashore. Similarly and after warnings, the tide of water that
the Flood Control District threatened might be released
seaward, never materialized.

BLOWN PLANS, FROM page 8
Broward that needs study," Irons said. He cited the
Hurricane Manual for Marine Interests, prepared and
published by Dade County's Kate Hale and the Dade Office
of Emergency Management as good and accurate, but added,
"It just didn't get across the enormity of the cataclysm
involved with a Category Five storm.
Discussion and revision of Dade's and Broward's
Flotilla Plans are called for, Irons said. He pointed out that
many of the bridges locked down when-winds reached 40
miles an hour, were not on evacuation routes that enable
residents to move from flood-prone zones to safety. He
believes more boats in both counties could have moved up
river to safety.
Even in Fort Lauderdale, however, houseboats at
Marina Bay appear to have been wracked by high winds.
After the first of the year, when his group has an
opportunity to study preliminary results of reports being
compiled, recommendations will be made to the city and to
individual boaters, Irons said.
Most marinas long have urged or demanded that
boats leave facilities in advance of a hurricane. Not bad
advice, Irons opines, because marinas themselves were
heavily damaged. Sections of concrete were broken up,
wood members were torn apart, boats were lifted by storm
surge, wave and wind, then dropped to rest atop pilings that
penetrated the hull.
Just about every plight that fiction-writers could devise
for storm-damage to boats was visited on the Dade-Broward
fleet Unsecured vessels appeared to fare little worse than
their carefully secured counterparts.
Police warn that no home is safe from a knowledgeable
thief determined to break into the dwellings. Similarly, no
vessel can be hurricane-proofed to the point of guaranteed
survival. Irons reported making a photograph of boats
destroyed at Black Point and including in the scene a
Southern Bell telephone booth with the telephone and
books secure. The storm had swept away the telephone
"We have to learn more about how to prepare for a
maximum storm," Irons said, then added, "There's no way."

South Dade parks coming on line

Biscayne and Everglades, are on the road to recovery, and

In South Dade, however, only Homestead's Bayfront

Miami River yard closed & for sale
MIAMI "For sale" signs have gone up at Allied
Marine's Miami River yard after most operations were
shifted to Hatteras of Lauderdale and Stuart Hatteras, both
owned by Allied's Winthrop P. Rockefeller.
Allied's presence in Dade will be in the form of a new
Coconut Grove office staffed by about 10 sales people.
Some 75 workers already had been transferred to the
Lauderdale operation. Rockefeller has owned Allied since
1978 and since the prime years of the 1980s until 1991,
sales fell from about $20 million annually to $9 million,
attributed both to the luxruy tax and the recession.
The 8.5-acre property is priced at $6.19 million. The
yard, 2051 NW llth St., experienced only minor impact
from Hurricane Andrew, and has been at the Miami location
for almost 50 years.
Nine buildings on the property provide about 100,000
square feet of space, including a luxury apartment and a
helicopter pad. The yard can take boats up to 125 feet.

applies to all vessels less than 26 feet when underway. In
addition, the PFD must fit the child.
At a time when Andrew has brought great awareness of

One of the arguments for the entire family to wear

Maritime museum attempts to
anchor in Currie Park
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
WEST PALM BEACH The director of the
Palm Beach Maritime Museum is seeking to obtain
part of Currie Park as the site for its museum
building and as a terminus for ferry tours of Peanut
Maritime Museum director John Grant said that
the West Palm Beach city commission has voted in
favor of the concept of putting the museum in the
Grant's initial plans include conducting tours of
Peanut Island's Kennedy Bunker and Coast Guard
station, utilizing two cement piers which jut out into
Lake Worth from Currie Park as a docking area for
a ferry boat.
Grant would also like to refurbish the old
Angler's Club building to serve as a ticket booth for
the island tours.
However, the city of West Palm Beach has been
considering a plan to turn the two jetties and the
surrounding area into a mangrove demonstration
project and fishing site.
West Palm Beach city commissioner Jeff
Koons, who has expressed his reservations
regarding the museum proposal, stated, "I don't
think those jetties could work as a ferry basin,
unless they did some major reconstruction of the
Another obstacle to putting a ferry basin in the
jetty area is that there are seagrasses located there,
and the county's Wetland Protection Ordinance
does not allow for boats mooring over seagrasses
due to impacts from shading and disturbances from
Barbara Conmy, senior environmental analyst
with Palm Beach County's Department of
Environmental Resources Management, stated, "One
of the problems they (the museum) would run up
against in putting a ferry terminal in there is that
there are seagrasses located along Currie Park and it
may be difficult to find an area for boat mooring
Where there are no seagrasses."
'Grant also maintains that the U.S. Coast Guard
Station located on Peauiit Island will be turned over
to the maritime museum by the Port of Palm Beach
by December of 1993.
However, Ben Murphy, executive director of the
Port of Palm Beach, noted, "We have nothing to that
effect on a lease or anything regarding turning the
Coast Guard station over to the museum ...
everyone we've talked to says [the Coast Guard] are
going to maintain it for surveillance."
A $50,000 study regarding the restoration of
the Lake Worth Inlet Coast Guard Station and Boat
House on Peanut Island was recently completed and
submitted to the State of Florida Division of
Architect Leslie Divoll has submitted an
application to the State Historical Preservation
Officer, asking for a preliminary judgment as to
whether or not the property is eligible for the
national register. Federal law requires action to be
taken to protect the property if it becomes eligible
for the federal registry. Divoll has also completed a
conceptual plan to transform the Coast Guard
Station into a museum facility.
Grant's immediate plans include obtaining a
building across from Currie Park as a temporary
museum site until a permanent facility is built into
Currie Park, a process that Grant says could take as
long as five years. Grant also says that an IMAX
theatre is also a priority for the museum, as it would
quadruple the cash flow for the project.
Grant deflects critics of the maritime museum
by stating that it would draw people to the area and
help revitalize the Northwood business district.
West Palm Beach city commissioner Koons
counters, "Currie Park is the last open space in West
Palm Beach directly on the water we have an
existing plan to facilitate more public
neighborhood use in there, and so the museum may
not be the best use of this land."

Special to the Waterfront News
FORT LAUDERDALE To ride a bicycle along
A1A on a sunny morning is to find yourself in carefree
company with the ecologically correct and physically fit.
While pedaling -along one summer morning, a fellow
traveler caught my eye a smiling man in what appeared
to be an abbreviated police uniform, on a bike, making his
way along A1A. Intrigued, I called the police department
to further inquire about the phenomenon.
I found my way through the official maze to Sergeant
Rick Perez, head of the Special Problems Unit, a man who
loves his job. Sergeant Perez said the Bike Patrol was an
idea generated spontaneously by the members of the Special
Problems Unit who patrol the beach. The merchants along
A1A thought it was a great new development. Sergeant
Perez informed them that it was in the planning/proposal
stage, about to begin the long process of funding requests,
etc. The merchants along A1A were so enthused about the
practical application of the Bike Patrol that the Merchants
Association committed themselves to underwrite the special
i! omi Z
equipment required to outfit the Bike Patrol.
The four officers who make up the bike patrol
volunteered for this special duty. The International Bike
Shop on East Sunrise Blvd. built special bicycles to
conform to the needs of the patrol. The bike path along
A1A is one foot narrower than the Department of
Transportation approved standards, so special handlebars and
mirrors had to be fabricated so that the patrol bikes would
not interfere with the flow of traffic. What that means for
civilian cyclists is unclear.
A local bike shop also produced a bike rack to mount
on a police patro: car, so that a Bike Patrol officer could
call for backup, and use the car to transport the bicycle if
Sergeant Perez reports with pride that the Bike Patrol
has been a tremendous public relations success. While they
answer about twelve police calls a day, their visible
presence along the beach makes them a tourist attraction as
well. Visitors ask to have their picture taken with the
smiling officers, who are necessarily well-tanned and fit
thanks to their daily workout.

Sailing November 1992 Waterfront News 15
By DAVID H. WILLIAMS
Special to the Waterfront News
In 1988 I was called as an expert witness by Gulf Star
Yachts (they were still in business then) to testify on their
behalf as to sea conditions in the Gulfstream during varying
To qualify myself as an expert on crossing the
Gulfstream I documented my crossings by counting the
number of entries into the Bahamas as stamped into my
passport-multiplying the number of entries by two
(crossing back also counts) and subtracting the number of
entries into the U.S. (that's when I flew back).
The sum total was 159 crossings between 1981 and
1988. Now, if you exclude the two years I spent in the
Mediterranean, that leaves an average number of crossings
per year at about 32. 159 crossings of the Gulfstream in
every imagineable weather condition, navigating by dead
reckoning, (I don't trust the electronic type) and with the
exception of one crossing (the first) I used one simple
formula to navigate the 'stream.
Pay attention and I'll let you in on a secret.
Prior to my first crossing, while sitting on the dock
intensely involved in a trigonometric equation of
navigation to determine my course from Ft. Lauderdale to
Bimini, I was interrupted from my figuring by a local
charter captain who was interested in what I was doing.
I explained to him that I had calculated the width of the
'stream and I was estimating what course to sail until
entering the 'stream and then what course I would have to
change to to cross the width of the 'stream to allow me to
arrive within sight of Bimini.
He was a patient man and sat quietly while I explained
the reasoning behind my equations. When I completed my
explanation he slowly stood up, picked up his rum and

then looked me directly in the eye and said "Davey boy,
throw that calculator away and listen to me."
I was stunned.
He continued: "When you cross the 'stream in a
sailboat, no matter what the weather, steer 20 degrees south
of your rhumb line course and you'll never miss your mark.
Now, how about another rum?"
After missing Bimini by 22 miles on my first crossing
(using my complicated course equation) I decided to try the
20 degree south method on the return voyage. I came in
right on the FPL towers.
During the next 158 crossings I used the same "20
degrees south of rhumb line course rule" and never missed

to east, so if you have the option, sit the northerly out.
However don't be afraid to cross on the first day of a light
northerly. My fastest crossing, west to east, was during the
first hours of a 12-18 knot northeasterly.
My use of the 20 degrees rule takes into account
crossing the 'stream in a sailboat which is capable of 5
knots under sail or power. If the boat is capable of 9 knots
sustained a course of 15 degrees south of rhumb line will
bring you in right where you want to be.
I've never feared for my life while crossing the 'stream

16 Waterfront News November 1992 Bahamas
Bahamians dedicate Columbus Day to a 'lost people'
The Associated Press
SAN SALVADOR, Bahamas On a bright blue day,.
Christopher Columbus landed again on a powder-white
beach on San Salvador in the Bahamas the island many
believe was the site of his first New World landfall.
The man wearing Columbus garb Monday was Gavin
Collins, a sales representative from Nassau, leaving a
Spanish Galleon replica to meet the Lucayan Indians, who
greeted Columbus and his men in 1492. The Lucayans were
played by members of the Bahamian defense forces and the
national dance theater.
The Lucayans have vanished from the Bahamas now.,
but their memory was honored by Bahamians during
Columbus Day festivities.
The Bahamas and its new government, led by Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, dedicated last month's
quincentennial celebration of Columbus' arrival in the New
World to "the charming, peace-loving and gracious people
of an exotic New World."
"This is our moment in history, in the Old World and
in America," said Cordell Thompson, a spokesman for the
Bahamas ministry of tourism. "They will remember that
the Bahamas is the landfall point."
The ceremonies, attended by several hundred people
from many different countries, were dedicated to "the
peacefulness and friendliness of the indigenous people. They
just don't exist, not 60 years after he landed here," said
Lynn Holowesko, chairwoman of the Bahamas
Quincentennial Commission. The celebration was also
dedicated to restoring the island's ecology, which has been
dramatically transformed in the ensuing centuries.
San Salvador, known as Watlings Island until 1926, is
one of the easternmost of the Bahama Islands, with a
population of about 500.
The Bahamas are a chain of 700 islands with a
population of about 250,000, much of it in Nassau on New
Providence Island, more than 100 miles west of San
That island has long been identified as the site of first
landfall by many historians, including the famous
Columbus biographer Samuel Eliot Morrison.
Nine islands have been suggested as the original San
Salvador, most in the Bahamas or the Turks and Caicos, at
* the eastern end of the Bahamas chain.
During October's Columbus Day ceremony, British
Harrier jets roared by in a "missing man" formation,
honoring the memory of the Lucayan people.
Sean Carey, a 24-year-old spectator, said the discovery
of the New World "started off bad, but good can come from
On hand for the ceremony was U.S. congressman
Robert Doran, a California Republican.
"It was a beautiful ceremony," he said. "You can just
picture Columbus doing this 500 years ago."
The celebration started Sunday with dedication of the
Church of the Holy Savior, a brand new, pink stucco
building next to the old church in Cockburn Town on San
There was also a celebration at nearby Club Med that
featured costumes, traditional music and a fireworks show.
The quincentennial was also the time for the dedication
of a flamingo park on San Salvador, complete with a new
flock, and a new national park on another island, Abaco, for
breeding native parrots.
"We lost so much as a result of discovery," said Ms.
Holowesko. "We had huge mahogany trees. We pushed our
wildlife into the most remote corners. We've lost species
and a number of species are endangered."

The Epic Tale of Bill & Simonne Butler
Maddened whales sink Miamians Bill and Simonne Butler's sailboat deep in the Pacific
Ocean. Rough seas threaten to overwhelm their tiny raft as they drift aimlessly. Sharks
batter the raft continuously. They survive on raw fish. A manual desalinator provides
water. Their 1200 mile journey ends 66 days later, 13 miles from the Costa Rican shoreline.

18 Waterfront News November 1992 'Nautical Dining
Wide and varied menu a delight at
By JENNIFER HEIT-ZIEGLER
Waterfront News reviewer
From its former Lincoln Road location, B.C.
Chong Seafood Garden Restaurant has moved on
up to a more prestigious Bal Harbor address.
Now located on Indian Creek just off the
Intracoastal, B.C. Chong is surrounded by dockage
that owner Paula Chong says is rapidly filling up.
And with the more impressive location comes
higher prices, loyal patrons say, but dinner does
prove to be a class act.
Dinner is served in two dining rooms, one much
more casual than the other. In the less formal room,
patrons can even order thick American hamburgers
at the bar during lunch hours. Take out is always
Despite this trendiness, B.C. Chong makes a stab
at offering Chinese dishes with more authenticity
than the standard Americanized fare most of us
consider Chinese. For instance, the delicious eight
treasure winter melon soup is unlikely to be found
at your run-of-the-mill Chinese eatery, nor do you
find whole sea bass resting in a spicy sauce.
Here, you'll find a Cantonese cooking style
dominates, meaning light flavors, small amounts of
corn starch and stir-fried favorites, no MSG thank
you. As the restaurant's name dictates, seafood is a
We enjoyed the winter melon soup, ($3.95) with
its small chunks of melon, shrimp and shredded
pork swimming in broth. The spring rolls ($3.75)
were light, airy and served with a dipping sauce.
Other appetizers included six baked scallops
($14.95), stuffed tofu ($5.95), a lettuce pocket
($12.95) a mixture of ground pork and Chinese
vegetables with hoison sauce, to name a few.
Dinner selections are wide and varied, with
about 45 fish and seafood offerings alone, along
with tofu and vegetables, duck, beef, pork and
A guest's king's oysters ($12.95) was .
pronounced a hit. The fresh oysters were heated in
a delicate sauce of ginger, garlic and scallions.
Service was also impeccable, with waiters filling
our plates from steaming platters.
Other available choices are steamed flounder
($18.95), nutty chicken ($8.95), mushroom duck
($13.95) for half, beef with oyster sauce ($9.95),
pork with garlic sauce ($7.95) and crab meat with
In the seafood category, prices range from
$7.95 for squid with black bean sauce to $27.95 for
filet of flounder, with most entrees falling in the
$15 to $18 range.

and elegant surroundings.

Less expensive beef, pork and chicken range
from $7.95 to $13.95.
Szechuan shrimp ($11.95) proved to be the
standard shrimp and vegetable combo, slightly
spicy but not overpowering.
The sizzling chicken ($12.95) coated with black
bean sauce could have benefited from a bit more
spice. The chicken also seemed to be pounded too
flat, unlike the chunks of chicken most often used
in these type of dishes.
We judged the atmosphere to be pleasant. We
were seated in the more formal of the two dining
rooms. An adjacent room, with its tropical flair,
mimics outdoor dining.
If you're in the neighborhood, B.C. Chong is
worth a visit.

Miami boat show sites undamaged by hurricane

MIAMI BEACH The Miami Beach Convention
Center, the Miami Beach Marina and the Biscayne Bay
Marriott Marina, the sites for the 1993 Miami International
Boat Show and Sailboat Show, were not damaged by
Hurricane Andrew, which hit South Florida in August. The
shows will be held at the three locations as planned,
February 13-17 (special media/trade preview days will take
place on Thursday, February 11, and Friday, February 12).
"We are happy to report that all of the show sites,
including the two marinas, were not damaged by Andrew,"
said show manager Dale Robbins. "The areas that wree hit
badly by the storm are much further south of Miami
All of the docks and equipment at both the Biscayne
Bay Marriott Marina and the Miami Beach Marina held up
well during-the storm. The marinas remain fully
operational and will continue to host the sailboat show
(Miami Beach Marina) and the in-water portion of the boat
show (Biscayne Bay Marriott Marina).
The ultra-modem Miami Beach Convention Center also
fared well during Andrew. Work crews have already cleared
all of the wind-related debris from the lot directly west of
the building, and the hall is hosting events as scheduled.

Kendall community of South Dade was without shelter.
While they waited for a contractor to begin repairs on their
home, however, there was a ray of sunshine or Sundance
- Sundance Marine, that is.
Captain Shinkle, a pilot for United Airlines, got
together with Scott Grosky, sales manager for Sundance,
and his insurance company, United Services Automobile
When USAA urged that the Shinkles remain on their
premises during repairs, the original offer was that USAA
would pay for monthly payments for a mobile home
Shinkle would buy and then resell when the time came to
move back into the family home.
That was fine, but Shinkle had a better idea. The
family planned to purchase a boat to replace their 20-foot
Bayliner. Rather than a mobile home Shinkle proposed
stepping up the purchase of his boat, trailering the vessel
and living aboard in the driveway until repairs were
Rather than paying on an unwanted mobile home, the
insurance company would pay $800 a month toward the
cost of the boat for 10 months.
The solution brought a sunny smile to the faces of all
involved, and in a matter of days Grosky had the trailered
35-foot Chris-Craft Crowne 332 a mid-cabin cruiser -
leveled on the driveway of the home, with the air-
conditioning purring and three Shinkles Ron, Bonnie
and daughter, Amy settled on board.
"It was a good move for everyone," Grosky said. "They
moved forward with the purchase of their boat, and in effect
the insurance company is making the payments on the boat
for 10 months out of the first year, representing a nice
discount on the price of the boat."

Reefs absorb Andrew's underwater punch
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News columnist
FORT LAUDERDALE Knowledge learned in the
aftermath of Hurricane Andrew might show the three coral
reef ledges that run parallel to the shoreline of Broward
County, besides being important to Florida's stressed out
environment, might actually help reduce the amount of
property damage done should a future hurricane make a
direct hit in Broward County.
Possible clues to this surfaced after hurricane Andrew,
when veteran Broward divers, returning to survey their
favorite shipwrecks, were astounded by the heavy impact
the storm had on those wrecks in deeper waters. They found
that some of the shipwrecks sunk in shallower waters, or
inside thelhird reef, had relatively little damage; exactly the
opposite many ocean experts would have predicted.
The question is: what effect, if any, would those reefs
offshore from Hollywood, Fort Lauderdale and Pompano
Beach have on the storm surge and wave action if the eye of
some future hurricane strikes those cities directly.
Ocean Engineer, Dane Hancock, says that it might not
be quite that simple. He stresses that there are a lot of
variables in hurricane storm surges. For instance, when this
future killer hurricane might strike Broward County, will it
be high or low tide, and how low will the barometer
pressure be when this future wind-driven nightmare from
hell strikes? All of these factors will have an effect on the
amount of water that will slam into Florida's southeast
Hancock -explains, the lowey the barometric pressure
the higher the unrushing water will be in the eye of the
hurricane. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that if a
hurricane struck at high tide, and its barometric pressure is
low, there would be a lot more water coming at us. This
may have been the case in the 1926 hurricane which hit at

high tide causing an immense amount of water damage.
As a child, I remember my mother often told me
stories about that hurricane. In one such tale, she told me
how there were boats found over a mile away from any
body of water after the storm. To further impress me how
much water was around then, she related how she found her
brother, still alive, on furniture that was floating inside
their house in Fort Lauderdale, the lesson being, the higher
the tide, and the lower the barometric pressure, the more
water there will be coming ashore to prey on standing
property and people.
Then do the reefs have any influence on how much
water hits us in a storm? Hancock does say the reefs will
influence the amount of energy coming ashore from the
waves. A wave is essentially a circle. The top of the circle
is out of the water. The bottom of the circle is unseen,
much like an iceberg that has most of its body under the
water. When the bottom of the circle, or wave, starts to
drag on the deeper reef it loses some of its power and
energy. This would affect how much energy is left when
the wave hits the shore.
Does that mean because the reefs offshore would have
an effect on the amount of property damage done? The
administrator of the Marine Resource Section of the Office
of Natural Resource Protection in Broward County, Steve
Higgins, thinks it might. Higgins hastens to say that no
one has all the answers. He admits that he can't explain
away all of the different types of damage done to the
wrecks, but points out the artificial wrecks outside the
deeper reefs took the biggest hit from the hurricane. This,
he thinks, shows the deep water waves coming toward
shore had much of their energy dissipated by our reefs.
Property damage aside, how many lives our offshore
reefs might save is open to conjecture. How many fools
would stand there in the surf waiting for the hurricane to
come ashore so they could say they were there? Who can

compute what people will do?
Higgins also cautions, like Dane Hancock, that there
are those variables again, such as wind direction, tidal
action, and of course the barometric pressure.
When asked, what if the exact hurricane, Hurricane
Andrew, had hit Broward County directly, would our reefs
help reduce the amount of damage a hurricane would do to
our area? Higgins thinks the reefs would definitely affect
the energy from the onrushing waves. The damage done to
the deeper artificial wrecks and deeper reefs help to prove
this. He thinks this shows, yes, the damage done would be
lighter because of our reefs.
Brian Jarvinen, the research meteorologist for the
National Hurricane Center in Miami doesn't think the surge
would be affected by the reefs. That, he says, is dictated by
wind stress, meaning wind speed and direction. But
Jarvinen, like Hancock and Higgins, says the reefs will cut
the size of the waves approaching Broward County's coast,
probably meaning less damage done in the event of a direct
The bottom line question still is: how important are
the reefs that lie offshore? Are they just pretty objects of
nature for our pleasure, or do they possess a deeper value?
Part of the answer is learning how humbling it is to know
we are still just putty in the hands of Mother Ocean when
she gets a headache and runs wild. Andrew might have
shown us that, yes, the coral reefs are important to us,
important as natural barriers that help break down some of
the storm water-driven intensity.
Divers who turn over coral heads to get at what is left
of the lobster population, boaters who carelessly drop
anchors onto coral without thinking, governments that
allow corporations to pollute waters affecting the coral -
might pause to realize how nice it is those old limestone
formations, left over from the last ice age, are still out
there, like silent sentinels, waiting for the Big One.

Key West reefs photo survey planned
By DEEVON QUIROLO
Special to the Waterfront News
Reef Relief is planning a photo-monitoring survey of
the coral reef, thanks to startup funding from Rodale Press,
which provided two thousand dollars. The survey will
photograph thirty sites once a month at Key West-area reefs
over a five-year period. The project will provide a baseline
study a record of change in the coral community over an
The photographs will document biological events such
as algal blooms, outbreaks of blackband diseases, sea
urchin recovery, herbivorous overgrazing, as well as
healthy coral growth, and unique or large coral formations.
Unusual events such as major groundings or storm damage
will be documented. Water temperature, air temperature,
visibility and wind conditions will be recorded at each
location photographed. Information will be collected at each
site regarding the number of boats visiting the reef, the
numbers of divers, snorkelers, fishermen, boaters and
others. Results will be shared with policy-makers,
scientists and the managers of the new Florida Keys
National Marine Sanctuary, which includes the areas
The data collected will provide accurate, on-site
information for an area that has not been previously
surveyed. The project will be a learning experience for
recreational divers interested in an opportunity to participate
in a reef conservation effort, and is headed by Dr. Thomas

Florida boating industry hit hard by revised coastal pollution laws
By S.B. RINEHIMER, Esquire
Special to the Waterfront News
The impact of the recently revised Pollutant Discharge
Prevention and Removal Act (ACT) (Chapter 376 Florida
Statutes) will be profound for the current marina owners in
the State of Florida. Under the act, the Department of
Natural Resources (DNR) maintains the power to enforce
this legislation and, in doing so, have drafted their own
proposed rules which must be adhered to.
Because of the enormous amount of pleasure and
commercial boating activities which take place in the state
and surrounding navigable waters, it was the intent of the
Legislature to impose more stringent regulations in order to
avoid potentially catastrophic threats to the marine
environment. Florida currently has the highest number of
registered boaters of any state in the United States.
...it was the intent of the Legislative to
impose more stringent regulations in
order to avoid potentially catastrophic
threats to the marine environment.
The revised state regulations and rules make it
imperative that marina owners/operators and their tenants
(i.e., boat owners) recognize their obligations and duties
under the law and that failure to comply will not only
impact negatively the environment but their pocketbooks
Depending on the fuel storage capacity of the marina
Facility; as of October 1, 1992, the owner or operator must
be in compliance and have a spill coniingency plan in place
which is site specific for reporting and conffolling
discharges of pollutants into the waters.
Broward County, for example, has implemented a "Best
Management Practices" for recreational marinas or boat
storage facilities with ten or more boat slips or spaces and
all commercial boating facilities, which is more onerous
than the Federal Water Pollution Control Act or the
recently revised Florida legislation.
In the last few months, the Office of Natural Resource
Protection (ONRP) has been aggressively carrying out
Broward County's new policies regarding the marina
The ONRP has commenced contacting the marina
owners and/or operators directly to inspect the facilities and
to determine whether or not the marina is in compliance
with these new policies. Some of these new policies
include: requiring certain size boom (a tubular floating
material that contains the spill) and absorbent materials be
kept on hand in the immediate vicinity of fueling stations,
and installing catch basin or sewage discharge treatment
system for bottom hull pressure cleaning to remove paint
residue which contain heavy metals and other toxins and
waste products that would degrade the environment.
In addition, Broward County places the onus on the
boat owners as well by requiring the marinas to obtain a
certification from the "tenants" acknowledging acceptance
of the requirements and therefore forcing the boat owners to
be more environmentally conscious of the natural resource
that they have been taking for granted. They are disallowing
sewage discharge from live-in boat owners and requiring
bilge filter systems on all boats to eliminate discharge of
oil and fuel-related contaminants into the water. All spills
greater than 10 gallons or 80 pounds must be reported to
the Broward County Office of Natural Resource Protection.
Keep in mind that a barely discernible sheen on the water is
in and of itself evidence of a spill or discharge.
Broward County is not the only county imposing such
strict compliance practices in the marine area. Others such
as Dade, Palm Beach, and Monroe are soon to follow suit
and are in the process of drafting similar rules.
Just as today's doctors practice defensive medicine, it is
clearly in the best interest of the marina and boat owners to
take defensive measures to protect the environment.
Violators of the rules will be subject to heavy fines which
in most instances far exceed the cost of compliance.
Fueling overfills into the water at the dock, spills
resulting from boat mechanical work such as oil, freon, and
lubricant changing, bilge effluent discharged, drainage, older
vessels that risk fires or sinking, pressure cleaning hulls,
and painting are just a few of the normal activities which
could pose a problem for the marina owner/operator via
seepage of contaminant into the ground and marina waters.
The revised Florida statute and corresponding DNR
rules now require every owner or operator of marinas
containing diesel fuel pumps or storage facilities to show
that they currently maintain boom equipment on-site or
have easy access to it in an arrangement with another
marine facility or certified response company. As of
October 1, 1992 they will be required to obtain a Discharge
Prevention and Response Certificate from the Regional
Coastal Protection Coordinator of the DNR. In order to
obtain one of these certificates, the marina owner/operator
must provide certain information to the Regional
Coordinator in their area relating to the capacity of the
facility itself and whether they maintain an emergency
response plan for discharge cleanup. Marina
owners/operators will additionally be required to have and

Florida boating industry hit hard by revised coastal pollution laws
REGULATIONS, FROM page 25
keep at their facilities minimum containment equipment for
quick cleanup, including a boom measuring five times the
length of the largest docked vessel. For example, if the
largest boat docked at the marina is 120 feet, then the
owner/operator must have on hand a boom measuring 600
feet in length.
Marina owners/operators are constantly faced with
potential liability in the form of compensatory damages
imposed by the DNR and courts due to the discharge spills
that may occur in their facility. The larger the spill, the
higher the fine, therefore initial containment is the most
critical thing. The more time that the spill is allowed to
spread, the greater the area damaged. Also, recent trends
indicate that private environmental groups can and will
institute civil suits against polluters where they feel the
government is not adequately enforcing the laws.
In order to obtain the required Discharge Prevention and
Response Certificate the majority of marina
owner/operators, which have the capacity to store up ,o
10,000 gallons of fuel (excluding motor fuel) must submit
a plan which includes the following:
1. Description of the facility including physical
location, street address, telephone numbers, radio
frequencies, terminal facility size and pollutant storage
capabilities, hours of operation, pollutants handled and
types of transfers conducted, number of docks, and size and
capacity of largest vessel accommodated at the facility.
2. Organizational chart of marina owner/operator
names, addresses, and telephone numbers of persons in
charge at all times.
3. Responsibility procedure and telephone numbers for
the immediate notification via telephone and radio to the
U.S. Coast Guard or Florida Marine Patrol, cleanup
contractors, oil spill cooperative if applicable, local
emergency response governmental agencies, and, other
response and cleanup forces.
4. List of all discharge containment or cleanup
equipment at the facility and
physical location of the
equipment, list of local contractors and local sources of
cleanup and materials available, procedures for facility
employees or contracted personnel to begin a deployment of
containment boom at least within one (1) hour of discovery
In addition to the plan outlined above, marine facilities
which have the capacity to store pollutants of 10,000
gallons or more are required to provide discharge mitigation
information by supplying certain detailed information such
as piping and tank diagrams, source of discharge, plans to
mitigate the damage sensitive areas most likely to be
damaged, methods and procedures to protect these sensitive
areas and identify all spill recovery equipment available for

Taking into consideration the large fines which could
be assessed against a marina owner/operator by the different
agencies involved and the courts in the event of a spill, it
would behoove all those who fall under the above
requirements to immediately investigate their available
alternatives regarding the purchasing of the cleanup
equipment and boom to keep on site or to join with other
local marina owners in developing an emergency response
plan or co-oping together to purchase the cleanup
equipment and systems which they are required to have
access to. In this climate of environmental awareness, it
would not only be 'economically wise for a marina to
practice compliance with the Federal, State and County

Florida boating industry hit hard by
POLLUTION, FROM page 26
pollution laws, but would be recognized in the community
as the "Good Guys" environmental marina.
The DNR has taken the responsibility one step further
in requiring an adequate Spill Contingency Plan be
submitted by vessels which carry 10,000 gallons or more
of pollutants (fuel and cargo). The State is most likely
boning up for the innate possibility of another Exxon
In addition to the clean-up responsibility, the formulas
for assessing the fines could conceivably amount to
hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars in a large oil
spill. The formulas used are such that the amounts depend
upon different factors such as the characteristic of the
pollutant itself, compensation for the death of any
endangered or threatened species, the type of marine life and
vegetation that was damaged in the process, and
administrative costs to the Department. For example, the
dollar value given to coral reef is $10.00 per square foot
impacted; mangroves, seagrass, or beach is $1.00 per square
foot impacted; $10,000.00 for each endangered animal.
Conceivably, damage compensation to the state of Florida

Firm relieved of liability
in jet ski rental dispute
By HERB MARKOW
Special to the Waterfront News
Case law: WSA rented a jet ski to 14-year-old
Nelson Aton and his brother. No drivers license was
required or requested, and they were given
instruction on operation and rudimentary safety
precautions. They were also told to stay away from
the swimming area.
Ruano sat in water five to eight feet from the
shore of the Rickenbacker Causeway in Biscayne
Bay in an established swimming area when WSA's
jet ski hit him in the head.
His suit alleged WSA negligently entrusted the
jet ski to Aton. The court gave WSA a summary
judgment under the shield of livery duties (Sec.
327.54, Florida Statute).
The livery statute provided a complete defense
to relieve WSA of liability after it had complied
with the statutory safety requirements. The statute
supplanted common law theories of vicarious
liability and negligent entrustment.
For a proper claim of negligent entrustment, the
defendant must be negligent at the time of initial
entrustment not after the fact. There was no
negligent entrustment here as a matter of law.
revised coastal pollution laws
which damages 3 acres of seagrass could exceed #134,000
just for the impacted habitat assessment alone, not to
mention the other factors as mentioned above, potential
civil lawsuits brought by other land or marina owners or
environmental groups, and of course legal fees incurred to
defend it all. All fines are deposited into an earmarked trust
account to be spent on rebuilding the ecosystem.
For marina, dock, and boat owners to expend a small
amount of money on compliance, it is cheap insurance
against cleanup costs and damage assessments levied in the
event of a possible spill.

Boat-owner to stand trial
in drowning death of youth
The Associated Press
CASTLE ROCK, Colo. The owner of a boat that
sank in Chatfield Reservoir will face charges he was
criminally negligent in the drowning of a 14-year-old
passenger who wasn't wearing a life preserver and could not
Kurtis Jon Holt, 38, was ordered Oct. 19 to stand trial
on charges of child abuse resulting in the Aug. 8 death of
Prosecutor Kevin Sidel said Monday Holt was
intoxicated and failed to take proper measures to ensure the
youth's safety. Holt's 16-foot motorboat sank seconds after
the boat's plug inexplicably gave way as it was headed to
Defense attorney Charles Brega said Holt and another
boater tried to save Pounds, but the boy seemed to panic
and pushed away a life preserver.
One witness has told authorities Pounds wore a life
jacket during outings on the boat that day, but took it off
on the last fatal trip.
Sidel contended the boat was unsafe and that Holt's
judgment was impaired by alcohol. Hol had a 0.153
percent blood-alcohol content level less than two hours
after the accident.
Under Colorado state law, a driver or boater with a
reading of 0.1 percent is considered intoxicated. Holt faces a
separate charge of boating under the influence of alcohol.

Broward sea turtles having banner year
By LOU FISHER
Special to the Waterfront News
FORT LAUDERDALE Sea turtle nesting season
started on the beaches of Broward County at the beginning
of April this year. Females of at least three species of sea
turtles come ashore on Broward County's beaches through
August of every year. Loggerhead sea turtles (a threatened
species), green sea turtles (an endangered species) and giant
leatherback sea turtles (also an endangered species) use the
beaches in Broward County to lay clutches of
approximately 100 golfball-sized, leathery-shelled eggs.
These threatened and endangered reptiles come ashore at
night, dig an egg chamber and deposit their clutches in the
sand. About 60 days later the clutches hatch out. The
hatchling sea turtes then make their way to the ocean to
begin an arduous life at sea. Present scientific information
indicates that about one in 10,000 (0.01%) of the hatchling
turtles will survive to reproductive adulthood.
Due to the highly developed nature of Broward's
beaches most of the hatchling sea turtles would not survive
ev en the short trip to the ocean's edge without some help
from man. To sustain the continued survival of these
threatened and endangered reptiles, the Broward County
Office of Natural Resource Protection, Marine Resources
Section sponsors the Broward County Sea Turtle
Conservation Program each year. Through this program,
sea turtle nests that would not have a chance to survive on
their own are relocated to enclosed, protected beach
hatcheries, or safer beach areas. The nests are incubated in
sand egg chambers constructed to duplicate the natural
chamber the eggs were rescued from. The hatchlings are
ultimately released into the ocean. The hatcheries are
located at North Beach Park in Hollywood; John U. Lloyd
Beach State Recreation Aea; Fort Lauderdale Beach and
Pompano Beach at Atlantic Blvd. A Sea Turtle:

Conservation team patrols all of Broward's beaches at dawn,
every day, and relocates any endangered nests. This time of
year (August and September) the team expends much of its
conservation energy by checking the hatcheries several
times a day, and releasing hatched sea turtles into the surf
Over 2100 nests have been surveyed in Broward
through the end of July this season, a number that indicates
this to be a banner year, and compares favorably with
survey results from 1990 (2,385 nests) and 1991 (2,017
nests). Normally this part of the sea turtle season is spent
counting hatchlings and determining the hatch success
percentage; however, with the arrival of Hurricane Andrew
on August 24th, most of the markers used to identify
relocated nest sites were washed away in the storm. This
will prevent the program workers from reexamining those
nests, but it likely will not hinder the hatchlings from
emerging and beginning their search for the water's edge.
Ultimately, the success of the program is measured in the
numbers of hatchlings released (135,000 released in 1991).
Andrew has hampered this measurement of success,
however, the program effort will continue, and with
persistence, will contribute to the recovery of these
threatened and endangered species.
Concerned citizens, tourists and members of the
general public who have sighted a sea turtle on the beach, a
sea turtle nest, or hatchlings Wandering on the beach can
participate in and help the conservation effort by reporting
the sighting to the Sea Turtle Conservation Program "Sea
Turtle Hotline" at 328-0580 or they can call the Florida
Marine Patrol at 467-4541. Additional information
regarding the Broward County Sea Turtle Conservation
Program can be obtained by calling the Office of Natural
Resource Protection, Marine Resource Section at 765-

Repeal bill sent to the president
Congress reverses course and sinks boat 'user fee' tax
By MICHAEL SCIULLA
Special to the Waterfront News
WASHINGTON, DC The Congress in October
approved and sent to the President legislation to repeal the
controversial federal boat "user fee" tax which has been
levied on more than four million recreational boat owners
for nearly two years.
If signed into law by the President, the so-called boat
"user fee" will be eliminated in three stages'beginning
immediately with all boats 21 feet and less. On October 1,
.1993 the levy would be repealed on boats 37-feet and less
and on October 1, 1994 for all remaining boats.
"The user fee concept as it was applied to boaters is
seriously flawed," charged BOAT/US President Richard
Schwartz. "The Congress has now confirmed that this levy
is nothing but a new tax on the middle class masquerading
as a fee and that it should be sunk," he added.
Congressional support for repeal has been unwavering
and widespread. In the nearly two years that it has taken to
reverse course, there have been four unanimous votes in the
House and Senate along with two separate recorded votes of
412-6 and 339-78 in the House. In addition, there was a
steady stream of unanimous approvals by at least four
At this point, the Bush Administration has not
signaled its position. "But, given the President's stated
position that the new taxes included in the 1990 Budget Act
were a mistake, we are hopeful that he will live up to his
campaign promises and sign this repeal bill into law," said
