The 'world's largest boat showy becomes larger
By GERI HABER
Special to the Waterfront News
MIAMI BEACH Like a familiar landmark
guiding boaters to their favorite harbor, the 1992
Miami International Boat Show and Sailboat Show
will attract boaters from around the world to Miami
Beach February 13 -17 for the world's largest
exposition of marine products and services,
The show, to be held at the ultra-modem Miami
Beach Convention Center, the Miami Beach Marina
(sailboat show) and the Biscayne Bay Marriott
Marina will feature exhibits by all of the marine
industry's top manufacturers, along with new areas
and special attractions that make the "world's
biggest boat show" even bigger.
For 1993, the show will augment the overall
variety of the exhibition with new display areas,
attractions and hands-on activities that illustrate the
fun and variety of recreational boating.
The showstopper this year may be the free ski
shows and clinics, which will take place in the Ski
Lake, a specially constructed lake located in the
open air exhibit area of the convention center. The
lake is a 160-foot-long custom-built pool where
professional water-skiers, utilizing a powerful cable
drive system, will perform spectacular shows and
provide helpful tips for beginners, as well as
Fishing enthusiasts, one of the show's most
important audiences, will have the opportunity to
take advantage of new saltwater fishing seminars at
the show. The free discussions will be hosted by
popular experts and sponsored by Mariner
The sailboat show at the marina will feature free
sailboat rides and mini-lessons from the American

Sailing Association, and a new series of nautical
fashion shows under the Special Events Tent.
"The Miami International Boat Show and
Sailboat Show has earned its reputation as the
world's premier marine exhibition, and with the new
attractions and display areas, the '93 event will once
again confirm its status as The Big Time Boat
Show," said Show Manager Dale Robbins.
At the Miami Beach Convention Center, the
world-class exhibition of craft from the entire
boating spectrum and marine engines, accessories,
and services will be accompanied by a 34,000
-square-foot structure The Outdoor Pavilion -
which is being added to the open air display area.
The new clear-span (non-internally supported)
structure will house nearly 200 exhibits, providing
shelter for sensitive displays while offering
showgoers a covered area for relaxed browsing.
Inside the convention center, over one million
square feet will be filled to capacity by hundreds of
the industry's most recognizable names.
Additionally, nautical retail items will be found in
abundance at the popular Marine Mart, providing
excellent gift ideas for the boaters of today.
The show's in-water powerboats exhibit at the
Biscayne Bay Marriott Marina will hold in store
dozens of large luxury yachts and sport cruisers --
allowing visitors to see and board breathtaking craft
which have been featured in popular boating
magazines around the world.
The Miami International Sailboat Show, held
simultaneously and in conjunction with the Miami
International Boat Show, will return to the Miami
Beach Marina with sailboats, sailing accessories and
new floating piers, one of which will be completely
dedicated to the popular multi-hull sailboats.

"With more in-water displays and special
activities on land, the Miami International Sailboat
Show is quickly becoming one of the industry's
most important sailing expositions," said Sailboat
Show Coordinator Debbie Harewood.
The biggest names in sailing will be on board
for what promises to be one of the largest shows to
Also, local sailor and Olympic Silver Medalist
Morgan Reeser will sign autographs and discuss
international competition during the show.
In order to facilitate seeing every facet of the
event, free shuttlebus service will connect all show
locations with the park-and-ride facilities.
Back for '93 is the second annual Miami
International Sailboat Show South Regatta. The
event will take place on Saturday, February 6 (the
weekend before the show opens), and will be held
in collaboration with the Coral Reef Yacht Club's
Youth Sailing Program.
Red Carpet Day will take place on Friday,
February 12, when the general public can preview
the show with a $20 admission ticket. Regular
admission is $8 for adults and $3 for children 12
Advance tickets for the show may be purchased
through TicketMaster. Tickets will be on sale

Boating conference in Stuart
focuses on waterway issues
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
STUART "Boaters: defending our waterways," is
the theme of this year's Concerned Boaters 4th National
Water Rights Conference to be held in Stuart from
Valerie Jones, president of Concerned Boaters, stated:
"This is going to be a world class gathering of experts who
will be able to tell boaters what they can do to take back
the waterways from the bureaucrats."
The event's keynote speaker, Captain Leo Black of the
U.S. Coast Guard in Washington, D.C., will announce the
results of a review of the Coast Guard's policy of shared
jurisdiction between it and the states with regards to
anchoring. At present, state agencies and municipalities
have been passing an increasing array of laws which affect
where and how boaters can anchor.
Jones stated that last year's tremendous turnout at the
conference has necessitated that it be moved to larger
facilities at Stuart Middle School. Close to 200 people
attended last year's event, and Jones is expecting 250-300

people to attend this year.
In addition to the shared jurisdiction issue, other topics
to be addressed at this year's gathering will include speed
limits, the right to be aboard your boat, liveaboards, marine
sanctuary designations, derelict boats and the usage zoning
of the waterways.
"The big issue facing Florida boaters in the 90's is the
intent of the Department of Natural Resources to zone our
waters," Jones warned. "Once you've zoned 2800 miles of
the Florida Keys, you're well on your way."
Jones added, "These aren't just state and local issues,
these are federal and international issues people all over
the world cruise the United States, and when other countries
discover the restrictions placed on mariners who cruise here,
then those types of restrictions will wind up being placed
on Americans as well."
Those people who would still like to register for this
years conference can do so by calling Valerie Jones at (407)
288-0952. You can also pre-register on Saturday, February
6, by 9 a.m. at Stuart Middle School.

USCG can't limit Florida's anchoring laws
Special to the Waterfront News
Florida recreational boat owners who hoped that the
Coast Guard would curtail the state and localities from
interfering with their ability to temporarily anchor will be
disappointed with a legal analysis of the issue just
completed by the Coast Guard.
In response to a formal request by the Boat Owners
Association of the United States, Coast Guard
Commandant J. William Kime has determined that, "While
the regulations promulgated by the states may be unpopular
with the recreational boater, the Coast Guard has no
authority to impose limits on state regulation when
Congress has not specifically intended to prevent state
regulation of navigation." The legal review had been
requested by boating group 11 months ego after th-
440,000-member association received numerous complaints
from boaters from Florida to Hawaii.
However, while the Coast Guard asserts that it has no
authority to stop the states and localities from regulating or
prohibiting anchoring, the Coast Guard's legal review does
not shut the door on the issue. According to Kime, "The
status of state anchorage regulations as an undue
infringement upon the right of navigation has not been
clearly determined by case law and is a question more
properly directed at the courts by individual boaters."
"Basically, the Coast Guard's position is that its hands
are tied and the way for boaters to affirm their right to
anchor is to take a test case to the federal courts or get the
Congress to pass a law which clearly preempts state
regulation of anchorages," said Michael Sciulla, Executive
nircto-r of the BOAT/U.S. Legal Defense Fund.

6 Waterfront News February 1993 Letters
t Ask Big Al- marine mechanic
I had my boat surveyed for insurance. The surveyor said
I needed battery boxes, double clamps on my hoses, bilge
had oil and various belts, etc. Said I needed engine work
too. The boat is 1980 and is over 10 years old. Should I go
through with all I have to do on this boat or buy another
Well, it's lucky the insurance company caught up with
you. All the surveyor did was try to save your boat, your
To the Editor:
Although we applaud any measures taken on the
manatee's behalf, we believe a person's well being should
take precedent. For the last decade, we have witnessed the
outrageous disregard of the boating population and the
rights of families living along Florida's waterways.
If the proposed state mandate does not address the
effects new marine regulations will have on all Florida
citizens, then the state must seek to broaden it so that the
plight of waterfront residents is taken into account. Further,
the absence of any meaningful enforcement makes existing
or any future regulations a farce.
life and your passengers.
If you bought another boat would it be a new boat or a
used boat? If you repaired this boat and put it in prime and
safe shape, would you be money ahead and are you happy
with this boat? These are things only you can answer.
I personally would not use a boat that was not in safe
and good mechanical condition.
We are asking that the state enforce a year-round 20-
mile speed limit along all waterways, restrict jet skis and
water skiing to designated recreational areas, limit noise
levels, require boaters to be licensed, beef up law
enforcement on both the state and local levels and require
marine boards to be represented by 50 percent of local
Since we pay double the usual taxes, what right does
anyone have, boater or otherwise, to destroy my property,
disturb my peace and prosperity and affect my health by
forcing our nerves to the breaking point?

Lifeguard union yells for help in Lauderdale
Editor's note: The following is an open letter to Fort
Lauderdale City Manager George Hanburyfrom an official
of the city's municipal employees union (AFSCME Florida
Council 79) dated January 17, 1992.
To George Hanbury II:
Safety grievances were filed by B.J. Kearney and Scott
Holland on behalf of all beach lifeguards regarding the
removal of lifeguard towers and the elongated distances this
created that beach lifeguards feel is unsafe to them and the
public. [See "If life's a beach, where are the lifeguards?"
page 14, January 1993, Waterfront News.]
This class action was grieved thru the Beach Director,
the Department Head and Labor Relations and subsequently
with the City Risk Manager. The lifeguards have
persistently given the city an alternate plan which remains
consistence with past precedence of the city i.e. removing
lifeguard towers from the north end of the beach. It is safer
to shorten the protected beach and maintain the essential
level of protection than to stretch the abilities of our
emergency response system and the physical abilities of the
The city has chosen instead to place "No Lifeguards On
Duty" signs in areas where lifeguard towers used to exist.
Lifeguards will still-rescue swimmers in distress in these
vulnerable areas. Reaction time will be longer and back-up
personnel bringing necessary equipment over longer
distances will delay life saving action to the victim.

The Union after further review recognizes that our
position will only be borne out by experiences yet to
happen because of the current coverage. Therefore we are
withdrawing our request for arbitration this date and hope
we are neither dead right or dead wrong with this issue.
We inadvertently missed the city commission meeting
on this issue, but would welcome an invitation to present
our side. If this can be arranged, please consult our lifeguard
representatives B.J. Kearney and Scott Holland.

I have a 19-plus Welcraft with a Volvo engine and
outdrive. Lately I have had a problem with shifting.
Forward wasn't bad but reverse was a problem. The other
day while pulling into my dock I lost reverse completely
- shift lever would not budge at all. Luckily I was at slow
speed and I managed to dock the boat.
What could be causing this problem and what to look
Well, with outdrives you can look forward to spending
money if it's in the unit itself. First I would check to see if
the cable is working. A rusted or jammed cable will cause a
shift problem. Next, your control can be broken as you said
you had a problem in forward speed also.
If all that checks out, on a Volvo you can open the
back plate and look at the shift action there. Hopefully it is
not in the lower unit and disassembly is needed for repairs.
I have a rumbling and knocking under my boat when I
speed up. At idle speed nothing. Boat runs smoothly and no
noise at all. Checked universal and couplings and motor
supports all in good shape. Boat is 3-years old and
always maintained and runs fine.
I don't know the size of your boat or if it is a twin
engine or not. I would check the prop or props for
looseness or something on the shafts or blades of props. I
also would check the cutlass bearings for loose shaft play.
If they are bad the play of the shafts up and down or a
loose strut or skeg can make the noise you describe.
Question-I read your article on trim tabs the other day
and perhaps you can answer me on my problem. My trim
tabs do not work at all suddenly. Fine last week but
nothing now. They are about 1 1/2 years old and were fine.
Answer-For trim tabs to operate they need power:
electrical or hydraulic, fixed or spring loaded are the
exceptions. I would check the electric lead going into your

switches (it could be a fuse or breaker). If you have power
trace down to your hydraulic pump, see if you have fluid in
your tank. No fluid, no go. Check your grounds on all
I don't know if you have electric tabs or hydraulic, but
lube all moving parts for free movement. A frozen or
bound up tab can cause your problem. Make sure your
pump motor and solinoids are working.
Have a small diesel that will not start. Spins over but
will not fire up. Never had a diesel before so don't know
what to look for. No points, coil, wires, etc.
What should I start to do to check for this problem?
A diesel works under high compression with air and
injecting diesel fuel. No fuel, no go no air, no go. Bad
compression: valves, rings etc. will not start. I would
check the filters, diesel, air cleaner and fuel pump for clean
and flow through passages. See if your automatic or
manual shutoff is on or off. Also, check exhaust lines
(manifold), risers and muffler for clogging. That can
prevent your engine from running.
Some engines have a compression release and your
engine will spin but not start. Knowing you don't know
diesels and you have one, get a book or manual on your
engine and study it.
Question-I have just been robbed of my TV, fishing
rods, radio etc., and I feel terrible. The boat is docked at my
condo docks and nobody noticed anything. We do have
lights but no guards and no accessories insurance. I do have
boat insurance but a high deductible.
How can I prevent this from happening again?
Answer-I really feel bad about what happened to you. I
read and hear about this every day and outside of putting an
alarm system on your boat you have a problem. Perhaps all
your boats on your condo docks could get together and get
some security. I have installed an alarm system on my boat
which goes off when doors or windows or hatches are
opened. There are alarm mats, magic eyes, door signals,
etc. that are available for you or someone else to install.
You can use your horn or a siren or a bell to sound off
when a thief tries to enter your boat.
Any Radio Shack has most of the materials needed.
Insurance will not stop an intruder. Also put a sticker on
your boat saying this boat is wired for theft.
P.S. You can contact me at Coast Guard Auxiliary at 601
Sea Breeze Ave. Saturday between 9 a.m. and 12 noon. for
help or advice.

17th Street tunnel debate rages on
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE Although revised bridge
openings have eased traffic problems plaguing the 17th
Street Causeway Bridge, plans to replace the aging structure
with a tunnel are still under review, state transportation
"We have to look at this thing in the long-term," said
Richard Pereira, a Department of Transportation project
manager. "The existing bridge is not in great shape. It's old
and it requires a lot of maintenance. It's not cost effective."
In late January DOT workers were surveying the
bridge's boat openings and performing other studies. A final
decision on the bridge's fate is expected in March, Pereira
A tunnel is one of three alternatives DOT is suggesting
for replacing the causeway's current bridge, originally built
in 1956. Also under consideration is a 55-foot drawbridge
and an 85-foot fixed bridge.
But it is the tunnel that for years has stirred the most
controversy among area residents.
Mostly in debate is the project's estimated $80 million
price tag. In addition, maintenance requirements will add
another $350,000 a year in costs.
Shaving a few minutes off a daily commute isn't worth
the expenditure, said Bill Cole, vice chairman of the
Coalition Against the Tunnel (CATS), a group formed
shortly after DOT's public hearing last June.
"With the prisons and schools being overcrowded we
can't afford to spend money on a tunnel just so people an
travel to and from the beach quicker," said Cole, who lives
in the southeast neighborhood of Harbor Heights. "We have
to get our priorities in order."
A drawbridge would cost over $25 million to build and
would also require $221,000 a year in maintance fees. In
addition, a drawbridge requires a major rehabilitation,
estimated at $6 million, every 24 years.
To build a fixed bridge, costs would tip just over $31
million. Normal maintenance repairs would tack on another
$10,000 a year in addition to a $7 million renovation every
In the long-run, the bridges could cost more without
offering the no-wait convenience of a tunnel, said Joanne
Becker, president of the pro-tunnel Waterfront Property
Becker points to the success of the Henry E. Kinney
Tunnel, the only one in the state. "Unless there's an

accident or break-down, there's hardly ever a traffic jam,"
Former Fort Lauderdale Mayor Bob Cox, whose marina
is located just north of the existing bridge, says he opts for
a tunnel because it will solve potential hurricane and traffic
"We have to have one or the other," he said. "We'll
regret it if we don't have the tunnel."
Federal transportation funds will finance 90 percent of
the tunnel's cost with the state paying the remaining .10
percent. If the money is not spent on replacing the bridge,
Congress could re-direct the funds to projects elsewhere in
the country, said Amy Stromberg, a spokesperson for U.S.
Rep. E. Clay Shaw-R Florida.
The decision to replace the bridge ultimately rests with
DOT. But Shaw, in an attempt to improve traffic flow, had
the U.S. Coast Guard extend the bridge openings last
summer from 15 minute intervals to every 30 minutes on
the hour and half hour, Stromberg said.
Berny Gartner, commodore of the Gulfstream Sailing
Club in Fort Lauderdale, said the openings seem to have
satisfied boat owners.
"In some ways it's become much better because we can
time our arrivals at the bridge," he said.
A tunnel would allow access to sailboats, with most
drawing a five to seven-foot draft, DOT officials say.
Club members are divided over the issue depending on
the height of their boat's masts, Gartner said. But he doesn't
foresee the draft as being a major stumbling block. "I don't
know of any boats in the area that run deeper than 15 feet."
Racing boats such as those sailing in the Whitbread
Round the World Race would find 13 to 15 feet of water
over the proposed tunnel.
"There's more than enough adequate draft to
accommodate racing-class sailboats," Pereira said.
The Whitbread boats will be birthed in Port Everglades
during their Fort Lauderdale stopover in April, 1994, said
Cleve Jennings, executive director of the Whitbread's local
"Many of these cruising boats draw in excess of 13 feet
of water and anybody can draw their only conclusion,"

Andrew recovery in lower Biscayne Bay
and Everglades slow but sure
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
FLORIDA CITY Boat tours and snorkeling
expeditions have resumed at Biscayne National Park,
progress in the post-Andrew recovery effort. The park is
likely to be in limited operation for another year, but
Elliott Key, snorkeling, and SCUBA diving are operational
or soon will be.
"The coral reef is practically untouched, particularly the
southern reef," said Capt. Ed Davidson, park naturalist. "If
you're not a marine biologist, you probably wouldn't notice
anything reflecting the storm."
Two big losses, however, were sponges in Biscayne
Bay and the Adams Key environmental center. Boca Chita
Key may not be restored and reopened for another year.
A video is being prepared by the park staff. It will
report on Andrews effect on the park, its resources and its
Everglades National Park has reopened, but evidence of
Andrew's destruction remains for visitors to see, with most
damage near the main entrance and Shark River Valley. The
main visitor's center was condemned and a temporary center
activated. Portions of the park, accessed through Everglades
City, had been opened in November.
One storm benefit: When electrical wiring was
reinstalled, the contract called for underground wiring.
Trees that were felled have been left in place as part of
the park's natural cycle, said the park's Pat Tolle.
Much of the vegetation already is resprouting, wildlife
has survived and "In the sawgrass you won't even notice a
difference," she said.
Together, Biscayne and Everglades national parks
suffered an estimated $50 million in damage.
Used boat show adds antique cars in Miami Beach
Special to the Waterfront News
The sixth annual Miami Used Boat Show is coming to
the Miami Beach Marina, 300 Alton Road, Miami Beach
on Friday, March 26 through Sunday, March 28.
This year, the boat show organizers who also produce
the Newport Classic Car Auction are producing an Antique
and Classic Car Show simultaneously with the Used Boat
Show in Mimi Beach. Attendees will buy one ticket for
$5.00 and gain attendance to both shows. Car buyers may
find themselves buying boats and boat buyers may find
themselves buying cars at this expanded venue.
Although this is first and foremost a selling show,
according to the show promoters, there will be a range of
prizes awarded for "Best Restored Cars" in a number of
categories and "Best Maintained Boats" in a variety of
Both boat and car sellers will find that the Used Boat
Show and Classic Car Show provides an opportunity to
expose their boats and cars to a large number of qualified
buyers at one time, on one weekend, in an upbeat
competitive show atmosphere that has proven to be a fast,
effective, yet inexpensive way to sell a boat or car, show
Following the same format as The Used Boat Show,
individual owners may enter their cars or boats and sell

Dade canal littered with debris
HIALEAH Little River Canal, which iuns from
Hialeah east to Biscayne Bay, still suffers from the
aftermath of Andrew and people.
"The 'situation is real bad. I'm concerned about the
water and the health situation," said Village council
member Frank Dervali of El Portal, one of the
communities through which the canal flows.
In addition to nature's debris, plastic, paper, clothing,
construction materials, and other litter are scattered on the
canal's waters and shoreline.
The canal is maintained by the state with the South
Florida Water Management District responsible for the
work. A crew of 10 workers and two supervisors normally
work the canal quarterly, trimming vegetation and clearing
Work is behind schedule because of hurricane debris

Cape Florida Light and the park were in dire straits as
the result of a lack of funds for restoration after the damage

PT 109 boatbuilder plans shutdown
MIAMI After more than 50 years Miami Shipyards
Corp is slated to close, victim of the economy and
possible opposition to the industry when waterfront
property conceivably could be used for a higher and better
purpose than boating, in the minds of some critics.
J.W. Brown, who has controlled the yard since 1965,
repaired yachts and commercial vessels until taxes, lease
problems, environmental and pollution regulations and
other impediments made it impossible to operate
profitably. Slips at the 4.8-acre yard will be filled in and
much of the land leveled, but a Bahamian shipping
operation will remain, and as trade to Latin America and the
West Indies expands, this operation may be enlarged.
Half a century ago the yard was busy building PT
boats, including John F. Kennedy's historic PT 109.
Construction of Aircraft Rescue Boats, designed to save
aviators downed at sea, was a major success for the yard
with 430 launched.
From a peak of 1,700 workers during World War II, the
payroll had diminished until fewer than 50 workers remain.
Port looks to park land for
expansion if Castro falls
MIAMI Plans by Port Director Carmen Lunetta to
expand Port of Miami into Bicentennial Park are taking
shape. a sense of urgency is enhanced by Lunetta's
prediction that the world's busiest cruise port may be forced
to turn away cruise ships before 1994 if space is not made
Another facet of the urgency is the anticipated increase
in marine traffic should Castro fall. Both cargo and
passenger traffic to the island are expected to explode once
trade resumes and Cuba opens to business and visitors.
In the face of this is a proposal due for consideration
early as February that would limit development of county
parks. This would pose the question to voters in a
Lunetta's plan involves bayfront slips just as in
Miami's early days dining facilities and ancillary
operations that would ease the pressure on existing
Under the plan there would be berths for four major
cruise ships, visiting naval vessels, and possibly a ferry
linking Miami and Havana. In addition, there would be a
major parking garage. The area, north of Bayside, would
dominate the waterfront between Seventh and Tenth Street
from Biscayne Blvd. to Biscayne Bay.
Rockefeller sells boatyard group
FORT LAUDERDALE Three company executives
have bought control of Allied Marine from Winthrop P.
Rockefeller. Great-grandson of John D., Rockefeller retains
a minority interest in the firm including Hatteras of
Lauderdale, Hatteras of Palm Beach and Stuart Hatteras.
Allied also markets Tiara boats. The new owners, all
former allied vice presidents, are: Dwight L. Tracy, now
president; Anthony A. Pasca Jr., executive vice president,
service and operations and Charles C. Smith Jr., executive
vice president and chief financial officer.
The firm employs about 150 persons at four locations.
Rockefeller, son of former Arkansas Governor
Winthrop Rockefeller, is chairman of SeaRock Inc., Little
Rock, and Allied's parent firm.
Hatteras hulls range from the 40-foot class to 125 feet.
Tiara hulls run from 18 to 43 feet. Both builders are
expected to continue their relationship with the new Allied

Waterfront News writer
MIAMI Five days of closed course racing off Miami
Beach is planned by the Southern Ocean Racing
Conference, (SORC) for March 10-14 open to IMS, PHRF
and level rating classes of sailing yachts.
The SORC, which traditionally started in St.

Miami Beach Marina.
The 1993 SORC race dates and hosts are:
* The Mark Baxter Lauderdale Yacht Club
* Lipton Cup Biscayne Bay Yacht Club
* Ocean Race Coral Reef Yacht Club
* The Gulfstream Miami Yacht Club
* Nassau Cup Nassau Yacht Club
There will be trophy presentations and parties at the
marina after each day of racing. An overall SORC awards
ceremony will be held 7:30 p.m., Sunday, March 14 at
Coral Reef Yacht Club in Miami.
St. Petersburg Race Week, an event designed to fill the
void left by the departure of the SORC from the west coast,
will be Feb. 20-28 out of the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.
SORC entry forms are available at the Coral Reef
Yacht Club, 2484 South Bayshore Drive, Miami, FL
33133. (Fax: 305-854-5911, Phone: 858-1733.) A valid
IMS or PHRF certificate must be delivered with the entry

Special to the Waterfront News
DAVIE The brilliant planet Venus that has been
visible as the "evening star" in the western skies after
sunset since early November, is rapidly approaching its
maximum brightness, and will easily command the night
sky through March. Venus reaches its best point for
observation on January 19. Venus will reach its brightest
on February 14, at magnitude -4.6 (more than 6 times
brighter than the planet Jupiter).
Of special note: Venus will be 1 degree (two moon
diameters) south of the planet Saturn on December 21.
Venus was known to the Romans as the goddess of
love and beauty (Aphrodite to the Greeks), and her son was
Cupid, the god of lovers. The planet's luminosity and
steady light have attributed to its legend as a "Garden of
Venus is the brighest of all the planets, even
outshining Jupiter and Mars. Venus even casts a shadow,
can be seen in the daytime, and is the third brightest
celestial object, after the sun and moon.
During these times when Venus is the most
prominent, the Planetarium receives numerous phone calls
from distressed or curious individuals regarding the glowing
orb. Venus is often mistaken for a UFO, airplane, train or
During war time, fighter pilots have tried to shoot
Venus out of the sky, not realizing it was at least 25
million miles away. Train conductors have been known to
bring their locomotives to a screeching halt believing
Venus was an oncoming train. Many individuals marvel at
the brilliance of this planet and, since it does not twinkle
(planets don't twinkle) they believe it must be a flying
saucer or other object from beyond.
The best time to observe Venus is from 6:30 p.m.
until 9 p.m., by looking west-southwest about a quarter
way up the sky it is the brightest object visible.
Through a telescope the planet shows up as a radiant
celestial object in one of its phases.
The Buehler Planetarium will present a special show
about the planet Venus and its connection to romance and
mythology in "Venus and the Star-Crossed Lovers," on
Thursday, February 11, 1993 at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $4
adults, $3 seniors and children under 12. No children under
5 are admitted. Reservations are required. Call 475-6681.
The article "The blood-red planet Mars draws near,"
which appeared on page 27 in the January 1993 edition
of the Waterfront News contained a typographical error.
"Gibbous Moon" was misspelled and was wrongly
labeled several times as "Gibbons Moon."
A gibbous moon is an intermediate phase between
half moon and full moon. The curves forming a
gibbous moon outline are convex (curving outward).
New study could produce safer Keys charts from NOAA
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
National Oceanographic and Atmospheric
Administration's new hydrographic survey of the Islamorada-
Marathon section of the Keys, on the Atlantic side,
promises to provide multiple benefits to marine interests.
The Coast & Geodetic Survey project was completed in
mid-October and after the raw data is processed, findings
will be included in revised charts expected in about two
years. Probable local charts to be updated probably will be
1150 and 11451, according to Rob Finegold of the National
Marine Sanctuary staff in Marathon
"The current NOAA charts of the Florida Keds were
produced from soundings obtained in 1935. Although
periodically supplemented with more modern data and
corrected for reported obstructions, the Keys charts were
overdue for a modern survey," Finegold said.
Affected Keys charts will be improved considerably
providing greater safety to mariners, he stressed.
The local program was initiated to evaluate a new
technology for USC&GS, the Fansweep system capable of
collecting shallow-water multi-beam bathymetric data using
a special transducer to transmit 52 discreet acoustic beams
across a 126 degree sector.
Conventional hydrographic transducers use a single
beam over a very limited sector.
Also conducted was a baseline hydrographic survey of
the area to International Hydrographic organization
standards by conventional methods for comparison with

for navigation, the survey is positioned within meters and
Fansweep permits 100 percent coverage of surveyed areas.
In addition to safety for mariners the new survey data
should provide divers and anglers with improved knowledge
of bottom conditions and some modern wrecks should be
revealed on the bottom.
Secondary benefits also will accrue from an expanded
inventory of cultural resources in the Florida Keys National
Marine Sanctuary to meet the statutory mandate of the
National Historic Preservation Act, Finegold said.
NOAA's National Undersea Research Center also
benefits since the Conch Reef area of the survey is the
future home of NURC's Aquarius Undersea Habitat.
University of North Carolina's NURC operation has
supported 20 marine research projects in the Keys this year
with more than 60 funded during the last two years of the
Center's Enhanced Florida Program.

Advisory council urges cooperation on inlet sand trap
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
BOYNTON BEACH In an effort to resolve a
dispute between County environmental officials and the
South Lake Worth Inlet District over whether or not the
Inlet District's sand trap needs to be dredged, the Countwide
Beaches and shores Council passed a resolution urging the
two bodies to cooperate to determine if a dredging project is
Beaches and Shores Council chairman John Walker
sponsored the resolution, which says that the County's
Department of Environmental Resources Management
(DERM) will provide all the data it has on the sand trap to
the Inlet District, which will then have its engineer review
the data to determine if indeed the county has a case for
dredging. If there is a project that is needed, then the county
and the Inlet District should consider cost-sharing on the
The sand trap is an Inlet District easement area located
near the edge of the seawall, along the Intracoastal
Waterway just southwest of the Boynton Inlet. (See "Palm
Beach County and South Lake Worth Inlet District Fight
Over Sand Trap," page 12, January 1993, Waterfront
George Frost, vice-chairman of the Inlet District, has
agreed to have its engineer review the figures as requested
by the Beaches and Shores Council.
DERM officials claim that the sand trap was never
fully emptied when it was last dredged in 1989, and that as
a result about 66,000 cubic yards of sand have accumulated
in it over the past three years.
Members of the Inlet District disagree with DERM's
"They're claiming that 66,000 cubic yards have
accumulated, but I think that's incorrect because there is 6-
8 feet of water at the same place where three years ago you
had an island of sand at low tide," Frost declared.
Bob Clinger, an environmental coordinator with
DERM, stated, "The Inlet District has told us for years that

Looking west from the Atlantic to the ICW at the South Lake Worth (Boynton) Inlet
its main mission is to maintain water quality for the South
Lake Worth area; as sand builds up inside the Boynton
Inlet, that constricts the flow of water and thus water
quality is obviously affected."
Clinger claims that under Florida statutes the Inlet
District is responsible for ensuring that there is no net loss
of sand to downdrift beaches, and by refusing to dredge the
sand trap it is violating those responsibilities.
Frost counters that the county doesn't have the right to
delve into the business of another governmental body.

However, he would not be opposed if the county wanted to
take on the project on its own, although he believes it
would be a waste of taxpayers' time and money.
Robert Barron, an environmental consultant who
attended the recent Beaches and Shores Council meeting,
stated, "I think the council was saying that these two
regulatory agencies should be eager to cooperate and pool
their resources for the public benefit, rather than perpetuate

LHP seafood haunt offers taste of the Bahamas

If you can't get to the Bahamas, try a visit to

There's something comforting about the restaurant's
individuality, easy dress code and well-prepared food. On a
recent visit we were offered our choice of rooms, one with a
T.V. set blairing a recent Dolphin game. Tables are cozy
even if they're covered in checkered vinyl plastic but
keep an open mind it's all part of the charm.
To complete the no frills look, there's plank floors,
panelled walls covered with nautical memorabilia, maps,
Dinner prices start at about $11 and climb to about
$18.95, with most in the higher range. There's also a
variety of daily specials.
Appetizers, which include oysters on the half shell,
cultured Maine mussels, crab cakes, stone crab claws and
fried smelts, range from $3.80 to $7.50.
With the exception of sushi, the dinner menu lists just
about all mainstream seafood with an emphasis on the
Bahamas. All dishes are served with slices of orange,
grapefruit and lemon.
Seafood can be ordered blackened, stuffed, broiled, fried,
steamed and sometimes smoked. A smoked fish platter and

A loaf of warm bread, streaked with fresh cinnamon,
was a nice change of pace, but obviously in short supply.
Our table was only served three slices, and when more was
requested, rye bread, a poor substitute, arrived in its place.
But the salads, a medley that ventured beyond the
boring lettuce/tomato combo, was varied with green pepper
chunks and cucumbers. And the homemade pepper
Parmesan dressing proved a tasty choice.
All dinners are accompanied by Bahamian peas and rice,
French fries or baked potato.
Unfortunately, we were too full to sample the desserts,
rumored to be homemade and delicious. Selections included
a chocolate torte, pecan pie, Key lime pie and cheesecake.

sheets of wax paper and pound to one half inch thickness.

a slice of procuitto followed by a cube of cheese. Sprinkle
with fresh cracked pepper.
Roll up each cutlet, placing seam side down into a
greased baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes.
To serve the chicken, slice cutlets into half inch
medallions. Spoon 1/4 cup of heated roasted red pepper
sauce onto each plate. Place medallions over the sauce and
garnish with fresh basil. Serves two with leftovers.

Safety February 1993 Waterfront News 23
For everything you ever wanted to know about boating, just pick up the phone
By JUDITH LAWSON
Special to the Waterfront News
If you have a boating question, want to report a safety
defect or take a boating course close to home, the
Boat/U.S. Foundation for Boating Safety wants you to
know that assistance is just a toll-free phone call away.
The foundation has launched a national advertising and
publicity campaign to encourage more boaers to use two
free sources of boating information the U.S. Coast
Guard Boating Safety Hotline (800-368-5647) and the
Foundation's own CourseLine (800-245-BOAT in
"The Hotlline and the CourseLine offer boaters instant
access to a wealth of free information they can use to enjoy
the sport safely," said Jim Ellis, Executive Director of the
The Coast Guard Boating Safety Hotline provides
information on a wide range of topics, including Coast
Boating safety seminar in late February
By VIRGIL CHAMBERS
Special to the Waterfront News
WINTER HAVEN The 1993 boating Education and
Professional Training Seminar is just around the comer and
anyone interested in participating should call or write now
for a registration packet. The seminar, sponsored by the
National Safe Boating Council is set for Feb. 28 through
March 3 in Orlando where boating and water safety experts
from around the U.S. and Canada will gather for hands-on
workshops, on-the-water demonstrations and numerous
presentations on boating safety techniques and programs
that work. Also cooperating are the American Water Ski
Association and Florida Dept. of Natural Resources.
The seminar theme is "Accomplishing the Mission -
Safer Boating Through Education," focusing on the role of
educators in bringing their message to the boating public.
In addition to National Safe Boating council members,
boating safety educators, law enforcement officers,
volunteers and members of the boating and outdoors press
should find many of the topics and workshops compelling.
The location in sunny Florida offers the seminar organizers
the perfect setting to conduct a variety of in-the-water
demonstrations everything from selecting life jackets for
comfort and safetyin a wave pool to waterskiing behind a
jet skiad testing small boat stability.
The informal seminar atmosphere is also an
- opportunity for people involved in boating and water
sports to renew old contacts and make new ones.
Professionals such as marine police and safety instructors
as well as writers, lobbyists and association representatives
will find the workshops and activities fun and informative.
It's a great opportunity for those in the field to share ideas
and to get the inside scoop on new trends.
Each year the seminar also includes an Idea Fair where
dozens of groups present their own special approach to
boating safety through exhibits, booths and other displays.
An enormous variety of free literature is available to take
home from the Idea Fair.
Registration for the seminar is only $85 for National
Safe Boating Council members and $95 for non-members,
and includes several luncheons and trips to demonstration
sites. (The fee goes up to $95 for members and $105 for
non-members after Jan. 29.) For a registration packet, write
to the American Water Ski Association, 799 Overlook Dr.,

seminar comes to Miami
By BILL MacDONALD
Special to the Waterfront News
The National Seminar Series educational course on salt
water fishing conducted in prominent auditoriums by some
of America's most knowledgeable experts on the sport, will
hold it's South Florida presentation at the University of
Miami on Saturday, March 13. The University's Maurice
Gusman Concert Hall will host the 9:00 a.m. through 4:00
p.m. event. The program features a slate of courses
designed specifically for revealing the how-tos and where-
tos of South Florida's coastal fishing, complimented by a
For six straight years, the National Seminar Series has
benefitted over 30,000 anglers of all levels of experience by
providing day-long, informative seminars where they can
meet and personally learn from members of its editorial
staff and a hand-picked collection of some of the country's
best captains and guides. Often referred to as the "no holds
barred" show, the seminars aim to provide the audience
with the latest-how-to and where-to information on the fish
they pursue most, both inshore and offshore.
Among. the national faculty at Miami are world
renowned anglers and Salt Water Sportsman editors Mark
Sosin (Senior Editor) and George Poveromo (Field and
Boating Editor). They'll discuss topics-related to how to
score more consistently, how light tackle helps catch more
fish, how to get the most from sub-surface trolling (wire
line and downriggers), how to refine live-baiting
procedures, how to use electronics to locate and stay on
fish, the latest ways to rig lures and baits, fishing the most
productive trolling patterns, and how to catch fish when
they're not actively feeding.
Joining the National Team will be Captain Mark
Houghtaling, a highly respected offshore guide with an
envious knowledge of live-baiting and bottom fishing;
Captain Ron Schatman, a top big game pro specializing in
offshore trolling and deep-dropping for trophy groupers and
snappers; Captain Paul Tejera, a premier Biscayne Bay
guide; Captain Ken Collette, a noted inshore specialist
who's equally skilled at fishing the waters of Flamingo, and
Captain Bouncer Smith, one of Miami's top light-tackle
captains. This team will cover refined trolling tactics
(specialized methods of targeting wahoo and dolphin) where
and how to take Biscayne Bay trout (North Bay included),
fishing the finger channels and patch reefs of southern
Biscayne Bay and the upper Keys, deep-dropping for
grouper and snapper, inlet fishing (Haulover and
Government Cut) and beach fishing for tarpon, trolling and
live baiting snook, fishing at night for cubera snapper and
swordfish, how to catch fish out of Miami, catching live
bait, plus a special where-to and how-to session on
Flamingo reds, trout and snook.
The highly popular program has been designed to pack
the vast knowledge accumulated by hand-picking teaching
teams into a one-day seminar geared to the beginning,
intermediate and advanced angler a must for anyone who
fishes salt water. The courses, targeting inshore and
offshore fishing, will be conducted in a college- style
manner with extensive use of audio-visual techniques,
including a presentation of some of the most impressive
slides from the files of the key speakers. Each session 30-
minutes for national topics and 45-minutes for local
courses) is backed by color slides, line-art, video bites and
on-stage demonstrations. These supporting images will
appear on a 10-foot by 10-foot screen. Closed circuit
.television is also instrumental in projecting on-stage
demonstrations and detailed rigging sequences onto a second
10x10 foot screen. "The visuals are very impressive and a
critical part of the tour. In addition to their entertainment
value, they're very precise and help illustrate the specific
points we are explaining to our students. Right now we're
working on filming and editing action-packed fishing
sequences to further support some of our key sessions. I
believe the audience will be impressed with this new
addition," Mark Sosin said.
A minimum of three instructors share the stage to
cover each session (team teaching concept). Under these
guidelines, the audience is privy to multiple opinions as
they hear each expert reveal his thoughts on a particular
subject. "It's great because the audience learns various
methods of catching a particular fish, fighting it or
executing a certain technique. If they're out fishing and their

Boatbuilders conference gets trade groups' cudos
By TED HUGGER
Special to the Waterfront News
BROOKLIN, Maine Four well-known trade
associations American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC),
The Society of Boat and Yacht Designers (SBYD),
American Boat Builders & Repairers Association (ABBRA)
and the National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS)
have announced their endorsement of the 1993
International Boatbuilders' Exhibition and Conference
(IBEX) in Miami, February 4-6. These associations
represent a combined membership of more than 3,200
marine industry professionals.
Dennis Snow is president of ABBRA, and is ardent
about his 290-member association's endorsement and
participation. "IBEX serves the needs of our members,"
Snow explains, "by providing an opportunity to learn and
to meet and network. The latest boat building and repair
technology is available only at IBEX it's a great
opportunity to see new materials and techniques firsthand.
All of the boats built today are different than they were a
few years ago. It's important for our members to know
how [these materials and techniques work]. I like to call
IBEX a trade and education expo!"
NAMS boasts a membership of over 410 members.,
President Jim McCrory says the group benefited by
attending IBEX in 1992, and is looking forward to the
association's participation in 1993. "The 1992 show was
an excellent forum for promoting professional enhancement
for the boatbuilding industry in general," McCrory
explained. "NAMS members will increase their knowledge
of the profession, acquire new skills and learn of new
products." McCrory also reports that his association has
scheduled its national annual meeting for February 11-13 in
Ft. Lauderdale so that members may combine two Florida
trips into one.
Tom Hale, technical director of ABYC, with 2,300
members internationally, is enthusiastic about his group's
endorsement of IBEX. "We're very supportive of IBEX, and
we're trying to convince people in the boatbuilding
community to attend. IBEX is a formidable gathering of
professionals discussing a wide range of relevant topics. It's
a technical program with good, knowledgeable presenters
talking about up-to-date concerns, and a networking
opportunity to develop valuable resources," he explains.
"Even for people who go to IMTEC or the Miami Boat
meeting," she says. "We decided to endorse IBEX because
our missions are the same: providing a network for the
exchange of industry ideas and technology. We're telling
our members that by attending IBEX, they will meet
people of all disciplines and areas of expertise. There's
something at IBEX for every member," Bell continues,
"information, sharing ideas, new products and new
The 1993 International Boatbuilders' Exhibition and
Conference (IBEX) will feature more than 33 seminars and
workshops designed for professional boat builders,
repairers, designers and surveyors and a 60,000-square-foot
exhibition and demonstration hall. According to show
management, exhibition space in the show is 70 percent
sold out and seminar interest has been very strong.
IBEX is scheduled for the Miami Radisson Centre in
Miami, Florida, February 4-6, 1993. IBEX seminar
information is available by calling (203) 852-0500.
Show, IBEX is a must because IBEX is a boat builders'
show as opposed to a boat marketers' show."
The president of SBYD, Judy Bell, says her 200-plus-
member design association agrees. "We really thought hard
about our IBEX endorsement when it came up at a board

City buys last remaining waterfront property
The Associated Press.
KEY WEST City officials here have completed a
deal that will protect the last remaining open waterfront
The city acquired Friday the historic nine-acre Key
West Bight tract from Trust for Public Land, a national non-
profit conservation organization, for $15.7 million.
The next step for the city is to find a property manager
for the area and to begin planning for its restoration.
Voters here approved in November a referendum
allowing the city to issue $18.5 million in bonds to buy
the area. It will pay off the debt in 2018.
The waterfront area is known for its shops, restaurants
and sidewalk vendors. Plans are to improve public access
by providing a boardwalk and several, small parks while
Pennekamp Park lobster
Special to the Waterfront News
The Department of Natural Resources (DNR),
Division of Recreation and Parks, has scheduled a public
workshop regarding DNR's proposed prohibition of lobser
harvesting in John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. This
workshop will take place Friday, February 26, 1993
beginning at 7:00 p.m. at the Sheraton Key Largo Resort,
Large Conference Room, 97000 South Overseas Highway
in Key Largo.
The public is encouraged to participate in this
workshop, which will include an overview of DNR's
concerns that cite unacceptable levels of impact on the
marine resources of the park and public comment on the
proposed ban on lobster fishing in the park. Marine
Fisheries Commission staff will also participate in the
workshop, and the Commission will further consider this
closure request during a future meeting following this

trying to keep the atmosphere the same, according to a
news release from Trust for Public Land.
The group became involved in 1990 when developers
announced intentions to construct a large resort complex
which would block public access to the waterfront.
TPL negotiated a deal with the Singleton family, the
landowners of the area who ran a shrimping operation out
of Bight for 40 years.
The estate trustees decided to accept the lowest of three
independent fair market value judgments $15.7 million
- conducted on the property.
Chiles names new Save
the Manatee Committee
The Associated Press
TALLAHASSEE Six months after the Save the
Manatee Club won its independence, Gov. Lawton Chiles
on Jan. 20 appointed 13 people to the committee that
oversees the club. "We must set aside differences of opinion
and come together as a group of people dedicated toward a
common goal promoting the preservation of this gentle
creature, which is symbolic of Florida's natural beauty,"
Chiles said in a press release issued by his office.
Last June, a circuit judge ruled in favor of the Save the
Manatee Club, which had sued to get its independence from
the Audubon Society.
The Save the Manatee Committee was first created by
former Gov. Bob Graham in 1981 with 18 members,
including singer Jimmy Buffett.
The committee dwindled to half that number over the
years but met regularly to oversee the club, which includes
33,000 people, according to Judith Vallee, executive
director of the Save the Manatee Club.
Eight of the 13 members appointed by Chiles are new,
according to Vallee. Nobody on the new board is from
Broward, Dade or Palm Beach counties.

The Florida Keys ecosystem: natural cycles or man-made suicide
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
MIAMI Most of us don't realize just how much the
sea influences our lives and how much impact we have on
the waters surrounding us.
Determining the extent of that symbiotic relationship
however, may be vital to our continuing lifestyle.
Identifying problems is relatively easy; agreeing on
solutions can bring opposing forces into conflict. Even
when there is a meeting of minds, conclusions may be
"There is not unanimity of thought and frankly at this
stage of our understanding, that's good, because it's keeping
people looking more carefully. When everybody agrees,
nobody looks carefully and you can go down the wrong
road all holding hands and to complete disaster," said
Dr. Harold R. Wanless, of the University of Miami.
His comments came after the "1992 Symposium on
Florida Keys Regional Ecosystem," the most recent effort
to learn the causes of marine ecological problems and to
agree on solutions.
At the heart of the matter, fresh water flows down the
Kissimmee chain, through Lake Okeechobee and on
through the Everglades to Florida Bay. Here, fresh water
modifies the salinity of salt water. The water also carries
nutrients that change the character of the saltwater.
As a result, sea life is affected: fish, plants, coral and
the entire food chain.
In addition, Floridians have redirected much of the flow
of water through canals that lead it from the Everglades.
Nature also impacts the environment, with Hurricane
Andrew as a memorable example. Dr. Wanless, professor of
Marine Geology and Geophysics, summarized the hurricane
program, pointing out that Andrew wiped out 70,000 acres
of mangroves on the west coast of Florida alone. Some
mangroves reconstitute themselves; others develop from

catastrophic modification. Now, for some environments,
the beginnings were the end," he said.
"There were areas of very strong north-to-south current
as the storm approached in Biscayne Bay areas where the
bottom was completely scoured."
Conditions change, man's understanding and knowledge
change. The most recent symposium helps, in terms of
progress, when information is exchanged.
"Almost everything we know about South Florida has
been turned around since I was a graduate student here,"
"In the last five years we completely changed the way
we manage the Everglades because we know that our
management program scientifically designed in the sixties
was killing the birds, not saving them. We're completely
changing the way we let the water flow through the
Everglades now for the better."
He said South Florida Water Management District has
been asked to get fresh water flowing back to Biscayne Bay
and Florida Bay so that it could circulate out better to the
"I thought that was a very questionably conceived
conclusion. A lot of people at the meeting were concerned
that they were perhaps rashly jumping in to a big mistake."
"Our reefs can't afford another big mistake."
Mankind is stressing the system, Wanless agrees, and
when change is observed it is attributed to people.
Scientists are very concerned about flushing fresh water
through slough that have been abandoned fifty years," he
He pointed out many things can drive a change in the
"One thing that's happened in the past sixty years is
that Florida has experienced about an eight-inch rise in sea
level," he said, adding that the rise is affecting the entire
eastern and Gulf coast of the United States.
South Florida's wetlands are being inundated. "They
release organic differently during a time of rising sea levels
rather than stable sea levels," Wanless said.
Geologists know there are times sea levels rise and
organic flush out of wetlands. "They stress the dickens out
of all coastal communities," he said, adding that it is
happening in the area north of Cape Sable.
"Most scientists agree reefs are receiving too much in
the way of nutrients. We've realized historically that this
has been the death of reefs. You can love them to death, if
you want to look at it that way, by feeding them too
much," Wanless said.
However, scientists sometimes find it difficult to
recognize natural cycles in the system versus some
catastrophic trend because people intervene. There have
been huge seagrass die-offs in Florida Bay, he said, yet
studying the geological history of Florida Bay it appears
that most of the time it has Very little sea grass.

TASHFM0O BOATS, CORI.-
- 4 A~
A brand new boat with a heritage
as good as Maine can offer.
T ASHMOO BOATS are descended directly from the famous Jonesport lob-
ster boats, respected as some of the most graceful and seaworthy of
all power boat designs. Our 24-footer combines the best of the old and the new.
Her easily-driven, comfortable hull performs beautifully with half the power of
a modern hull while offering the durability and low maintenance of fiberglass;
outboard power means convenience, trailerability, and more usable space. She
is available in a lobster boat model with hardtop or open bass boat style. The
Tashmoo 24 is a thoroughbred boat for the discerning skipper. And the prettiest
outboard in any harbor. Also available: Tashmoo open skiffs 18, 16, and 15'.
