SOUTH FLORIDA'S NAUTICAL NEWSPAPER
South Florida's waterfront becomes backdrop to movies
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Almost anywhere one looks these days it
seems there are film crews and photogra-
phers shooting scenes in South Florida.
Why are these head honchos from the
print, film and television industries continu-
ing to pay so much attention to us? What do
we have that the rest of the country doesn't?
One of the main reasons is our abun-
dance of waterways and beaches.
Almost every film office in South Flor-
ida has stockpiles of water-related video
footage, ready to be whisked off to interested
producers and photographers at a moment's
One such tape, profiling swamp loca-
tions, was sent to the producers to Cape Fear
and was instrumental three years ago in
bringing the movie company to Broward
County, said Elizabeth Wentworth, director
of the Film and Television Office of the
Broward Economic Development Council.
"My job is to market the area and featur-
ing the waterways and waterfront businesses
are a major factor in those efforts," Wen-
Florida currently ranks third, behind Los
Angeles and New York, in the amount of film
production work performed here.
But due mostly to the natural scenery
and warm climate, 70 percent of shooting in
the state is done in South Florida, from the
Keys to Palm Beach County, said Deeny
Kaplan, director of the Miami-Dade Office of
Film. Television and Print.
Two of the most popular locals in the
United States for film and print work, accord-
ing to the Hollywood Reporter, a trade news-
paper, are at Crandon Park in Key Biscayne
and South Miami Beach.
Chuck Elderd, director of the Palm Beach
County Film Liaison Office, said he is con-
stantly fielding calls regarding questions on
"Obviously, whenever Palm Beach
County is mentioned people think of yachts,
palm trees and the ocean," he said. "But we
have so much more to offer. We have many
different looks of water, from lagoons to
inlets to lakes."
In some cases, the water and waterfront
businesses have become stars in their own
right, he said.
"It's brought a small measure of fame to
certain restaurants, resorts and marinas,"
Such good public relations spurs outside
interest. "I've received more than a few phone
calls from tourists wanting to know where
this scene was shot or that scene took place,"
Indeed, nearly all of South Florida has
become a film buff's paradise. One doesn't
have to go very far to find places that were
immortalized on film or are part of a film in

Midler did in the tear-jerker remake of Stella?

Or how about a cruise along the Fort
Lauderdale strip, which has been used by
movie makers as a featured backdrop for teen
flicks beginning with Where'the Boys Are,
and more recently, Revenge of the Nerds Part
South Florida's waterfront has also been
prominently displayed in television commer-
cials, print advertisements and fashion
Wentworth points out that the lake at
Easterlin Park in Oakland Park was recently
transformed into a African watering hole for
a Swiss insurance firm commercial.
And Dade County officials can't help
but brag that the art deco beachfront proper-
ties in South Miami Beach have become a
favorite spot for models to do their vouging
before the camera.
Many believe that producers and pho-
tographers have been coming to South Flor-
ida in droves since the 1980s, when Miami
Vice proved that background scenery could
pull in ratings. But the industry's courtship
with the area dates back much further, to the
early 1900s when D.W. Griffith came to
Seybold Creek in Miami to direct Jungle
South Florida's waterfront
has been prominently dis-
played in television commer-
cials, print advertisements
and fashion spreads.
The area's popularity climbed in the
1940s and progressed through the decades
with local waterfront and other landlocked
backdrops being used for such feature flicks
as The Bell Boy, Black Sunday, Caddy Shack,
Body Heat, Cape Fear and the soon-to-be
released, Wrestling Ernest Hemingway,
which was shot on Hollywood Beach and in
Current projects underway include a
made-for-television movie on Hurricane
Andrew being shot in South Dade, a pro-
posed water adventure series to take place in
Fort Lauderdale, a television pilot titled South
Beach and an independently-produced film
slated to star Sophia Loren that is scouting
locations in Broward County.
Carole Nugent, executive production
manager at Fort Lauderdale Production
Central, said with numerous other projects
under way she doesn't expect South Florida
to fade from television and movie screens
"The film makers are tired of dealing
with unions and permit fees in New York and
Los Angeles," she said. "Florida is offers is
more user-friendly and we have the crews
and services they need."
Nugent's company is one of several lo-
cal services that are cashing in on South
Florida's growing reputation a movie mecca.
The 5-year-old, 61-acre studio is a full-
service facility with its own 65-by-90 foot
water tank that measures seven-feet deep.
The filtered and heated pool is the only
one of its kind on the east coast. It was built
specifically for filming scenes of Cape Fear.
The studio also has a "Wet.Cyc" under-
water shooting tank which measures 85-feet-
The studio has received several inquires
about both tanks, Nugent said.
"Producers don't want to bring major
stars down here and dump them in the ocean,"
she said. "Too many things can go wrong.
They need a controlled situation."
The Fort Lauderdale City Commis-
sion has awarded a former Italiarinaval
officer from Venice a medal of valor,

Opposition kills boater education bill
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
If at first you don't succeed, try again.
That's exactly what the Florida Marine Patrol and a state
representative from Tampa intend to do about a recently
proposed boater education bill.
Opposition and not enough time during the 1993 legisla-
tive session caused the proposed bill's demise, say supporters.
The FMP bill would have required operators of engine-
powered vessels bom after Oct. 1, 1978, to take boater safety
If passed, Florida would have become the fourth state in
the country to require mandatory boater education. Other
states with similar rules now in effect are Connecticut, Mary-
land and New Hampshire.
State Rep. Jim Davis D-Tampa, one of the bill's sponsors,
said he intends to bring it back next year.
The trouble started when the National Marine Manufac-
turers Association tried to block the FMP bill with their own
proposed law asking that instruction be given to boaters ages
18 and younger and requesting that the legislature do a study
to determine whether such education is necessary.
Anchoring policy receives
A legal analysis which concluded that the Coast Guard
has no authority to limit regulation of boat anchoring is being
reviewed by the legal division of the Congressional Research
The review came at the request of Rep. Gerry Studds D-
Mass., the new chairman of the House Merchant Marine and
Studds was asked to review the legal analysis because

If the study proved that it wasn't, a sunset provision in the
NMMA-backed bill would allow the state to repeal the law.
Although the FMP bill would have initially affected those
ages 16 and younger, it would eventually expand to include
everyone born after Oct 1, 1978, regardless of age.
It had no study or sunset provision.
"Opposition from the NMMA eventually faded, but
several rural area legislators were not convinced," Davis said.
"While they acknowledged that there was a problem with
boater safety, they felt it didn't affect their parts of the state
and that helped slow the bill's progress."
The FMP bill did pass a state senate vote on the final day
of the legislative session, but didn't make to the house of
"If I had 15 minutes I probably could have gotten it on the
floor," Davis said. "I just ran out of time."
Florida Marine Patrol Major Kent Thompson said he was
disappointed by the outcome, but is confident that the measure
won't be forgotten.
"It's a good bill and there are a lot of organizations and
state agencies backing it," he said. "We'll just have to keep
maritime attomeys believe the federal government's author-
ity may not be as limited as the Coast Guard first concluded.
At issue is whether the Coast Guard or any other federal
agency has the authority to preclude state and local govern-
ments from imposing anchoring restrictions, according to

Fund. Many boaters have called restrictions unreasonable, he

Waterfront News Columnist
What to do when derelict vessels threaten your pictur-
esque waterfront neighborhood?
In the last two years property owners along the Dania
Cut-off Canal have watched their middle-class neighbor-
hood show signs of a waterfront slum.
Derelict vessels clutter the canal. Houseboats have
sunk and remained in their lopsided positions. Oil slicks
mar the water's surface. Illegal liveaboards have left their
mark by adding traffic and noise to the area.
But to residents, the worst offense is the boats rafting
off otherboats, which prevents neighbors from navigating
their own crafts out of the canal.
"It makes it difficult to go out to Dania or the New
River," complains a resident.
Those living on this street in unincorporated Fort
Lauderdale blame fellow neighbor Tom Yesbick for the
Yesbick rents to liveaboards, allows boats to raft-off
and derelict vessels to remain in their unsavory state,
According to county records, the property, which
Yesbick does not own, has a list of zoning violations
dating back to October, 1991.
Recently, Yesbick was cited for the derelict, sunken
vessels. A hearing on the matter will take place May 12.
Property owners are also being cited for allowing
liveaboards on the property and parking a commercial
vehicle in a residential area, violations that carry penalties
of $250 a day if left uncorrected.
It's a plight that's pulled neighbors together to write
letters and voice complaints to elected officials and code
"It's made me rely more on my city commission," said
one long-term resident who spoke only on the condition
that her name not be used. "This is a nice neighborhood."
People here have worked hard achieve their Florida
fantasy a nice home with a small boat docked out back.
But now, some neighbors call the street "Pirate's
World," thanks to a pirate's flag and skull and crossbones
attached to a wall that surrounds the property where
Residents say they will show up enmasse to the May
12 hearing to once again voice their complaints.
"That's the only way I think things will get done," said
one anonymous resident.
But Yesbick says residents have launched a personal
attack on him. Although he rented out the space to house-
boat owners, no one ever lived aboard the vessels, he says.
Sunken houseboats are the responsibility of the owner, he
"It's nothing but a personal grudge against me by one
of the neighbors," he said. "As far as property values being
lowered," said Yesbick pointing to the county trash incin-
erator, "if the property value got lowered, that's what did
But renting out dockspace is prohibited by the area's
zoning, said county zoning official Shirley Foley.
Yesbick says he plans to lobby the county to change
the zoning so he could operate a marina on the property.
He is currently negotiating to purchase the land.
In the meantime neighbors wait to have their say.
Intracoastal speed signs confusing to boaters
To the Editor:
Like the shoemaker's children who have no shoes, one of
the legitimate complaints about our industry is that we who
sell boats sometimes are guilty of not going out in them often
enough to see what our customers perceive.
Last week, for the first time in probably 20 years, I went
to Miami with a large outboard, going from Port Everglades
to Miami Harbor and then to show some visitors the area,
returned up the Intracoastal Waterway to Fort Lauderdale.
In all of the wide open stretches of Biscayne Bay there
was the most confused melange of regulatory speed signs that
I have ever read. (I should rephrase that, because most of them
are unreadable unless you run right up to them and not stay in
the center of the channel where you belong).
I did not encounter more than two or three boats on the
entire stretch from the Miami Harbor to well past Baker's
Haulover and this entire area seems to be slow speed except
in one stretch where it says slow speed, but in smaller to read
print, adds "west of the waterway".
Adding this stretch of open water to the narrower sections
Reader offers criticism
To the Editor:
Let me mention first that I enjoy the informative character
of the Waterfront News. In the last April 1993 issue there were
two articles printed in Spanish and let me say that I also
applaud bilingual and multilingual education. However, what
does not cease to puzzle me, and this is the reason for this
letter, is to question why, in an area with so much Spanish
speaking ability, we have to see so many spelling and sentence
structuring mistakes as observed in these two articles. In the
enclosed copy of these articles I have marked an excess of 30
elementary mistakes. I believe that we owe it to the Spanish
speaking community and in particular children or those trying
to learn Spanish, to be only exposed to correct Spanish
language whenever it is printed and diseminated.
I trust that you will accept my comment as a positive note
to further the readership of your paper.

A: I think your mechanic is right. Until he sees what is
wrong, he can't give you an estimate. You could have broken
valves, push rods, rockers, or no oil coming up. After looking
at your job he can tell you cost, time and what to do.
Q: Four months ago I bought a home in Fort Lauderdale
with dock privileges. Now, the zincs on my shafts and trim
tabs are starting to disintegrate. What should I be looking for?
A: First, I would check my plug-in connection at the dock
and boat. Ask your neighbors if they have problems, as their
hook-ups may be causing your electrical or zinc problems. I
would not delay since severe corrosion damage can occur.
Check all grounds and circuits on your boat to make sure they
where one would go slow in any case out of respect to other
boatsmen or docked boats the journey becomes really intoler-
able, and I personally will probably never do it again. I now
understand why my customers, mostly reasonable people, are
so absolutely incensed at the bureaucratic mess that has
brought boating to this point.
Without equivocation, I can tell you that any estimates
you have made of the economic damage to the industry are
undoubtedly low, particularly so because all of these unnec-
essary regulations affect the little guy in the little boat and it
is this little guy who is still the backbone of the industry. If I
had a large cruiser with a paid hand at the wheel I would be
willing to come up from Miami doing five or six knots while
I sat on the aftdeck in reasonable comfort with my martinis.
We need to get some legislators who count out on the
average size boat in all of that wide open water to make them
realize what they have done.

are all connected. Buy a zinc guppy and hang it on until trouble
Q: I do a lot of sailing and traveling around with my
sailboat. I have a two-battery hook-up with a switch to use one,
two or all banks. When the switch is on "off," I'm worried
about my bilge pump. Is it still on? Do I need another battery
for the bilge and my other electrical parts (radio, depthfinder,
etc.) or can I tie into the existing circuits?
A: Your bilge pump should have a direct line to a battery
with a fused automatic switch in the circuit. Connect a float
switch that will activate your pump in case you have water in
your bilges. You can also install a third battery for this and all
your other electrical units. Make sure you can get a charge in
this battery and you can switch it into other circuits if need be.
Although, I don't know how big your boat is or how many
lights and equipment you carry, usually two batteries wired
correctly are sufficient.
Q: I have a diesel boat that sort of slows up and speeds up
on my port engine. My starboard engine runs fine but that

figure it out. Any ideas?
A: I had a similar case about a year ago. I found an air leak
in the line feeding the pump on one motor. Another time the
glass on one filter had a fine crack which also allowed a
vaccum break and caused a n engine slow up and eventually
a shut down. I would check for loose connections or cracks or
pin holes in the feed lines. Check your shut off valves,
electrical or mechanical.
Q: I have a crack in my exhaust manifold that drips a little.
Can it be repaired? A new one is priced unbelievable.
A: Yes. Depending who does it or if it is aluminum or cast
iron. A good welder can work miracles.

New law allows boaters to pick up speed
on Dania Cut-off Canal to 25 knots
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Boaters may soon be able to push down on their throttles
a bit more in certain areas of the Dania Cut-off Canal.
In a bid to gain control of their own waterway, Dania city
commissioners have passed a proposed ordinance setting
speed limits of 25 knots on specific stretches of the 10-mile
City commissioners unanimously passed the law on April
13. As of this writing, a final reading was scheduled April 27
and was expected to pass without delay, said City Commis-
sioner Bill Hyde.
The state Department of Environmental Regulation was
initially concerned with the canal because certain stretches
have no posted speed limits, said Florida Marine Patrol Capt.
Last year, the DNR had wanted to restrict the entire canal
to slow and idle speeds. But not letting boaters go 25 knots in
specific areas could mean more than an hour of traveling time
for crafts enroute from the city's marinas to the Atlantic
Ocean, Hyde said.
At a DNR public hearing in January, testimony was given
asking that the canal be kept within local jurisdiction. After an
on-site inspection by several state agencies, it was agreed that
city officials could attempt to set their own speed limits for the
Dania Cut-off Canal, Richard said.
City officials have good reason for wanting to have a say
on waterway traffic, Hyde said.
The southeastern Broward city, known for its quaint row
of antique shops lining Federal Highway, also has a thriving
marine industry city officials want to keep afloat, he said.
Requiring boaters to travel the length of the canal at a slow
or idle pace could hurt waterfront businesses.
"The longer the commute, the less desirable these busi-
nesses will become," said Hyde, a waterfront home owner and
"What we've done with this ordinance is strike a compro-
mise between jobs and revenue produced by the marine
industry and protecting manatees and waterfront homes,"
The proposed ordinance allows boaters to travel at 25
knots from the new Griffin Road Bridge to the Fort Lauder-
dale Small Boat Club, located 400 yards east of the 1-95
Slow speeds will be required during manatee season,
Nov.15 to March 15.
The southeastern Broward city, known for
its quaint row of antique shops lining
Federal Highway, also has a thriving
marine industry it wants to keep afloat...
Elsewhere on the canal, boaters must travel at idle speed
from the eastern city limits to Northeast Seventh Avenue.
Slow speed is enforced from Northeast Seventh Avenue to
Northeast Third Avenue.
From Northeast Third Avenue to the Federal Highway
Bridge idle speed will be enforced, allowing slow speed from
Federal Highway to the new Griffin Road Bridge.
Boaters traveling from the Fort Lauderdale Small Boat
Club to the western boundary of the Banyan Bay Marina, 4491
Ravenswood Rd., must retain idle speed, then travel at slow
speed to the city's western limits at Southwest 35th Avenue.
Hyde said the proposed ordinance mirrors existing state
If the Florida Marine Patrol agrees, Richard said he sees
no problem with the agency issuing marker permits for speed

Sales, attendance improve at Miami International Boat Show
By ARLENE SLOAN
Special to the Waterfront Ndvs
CHICAGO Attendance and sales at February's Miami
Boat Show indicate signs of a more prosperous boating
industry, said Dale Robbins of the National Marine Manufac-
turers Association, producer of the Miami show.
Robbins said this year's show saw a 15 percent boost in
public attendance during its eight-day run including the busi-
est weekend exhibitors have enjoyed in more than five years.
"Based on what we've seen first hand, the prognosis for
the industry is very promising," Robbins said. "Our exhib-

More than two million trees and plants will be needed to
restore the park's landscape, according to Lew Scruggs, land
use planner for the parks service. New plantings such as sabal
palms, coconut palms, sea grapes will replace Australian
pine and other non-indigenous trees that had almost taken
over the park.
The new plan focuses on revitalizing the formerly dense
growth along the center line and northeast sectors of the park.
Excavating will recreate the wetlands, freshwater ponds and
marshes that existed 40 years ago before they were filled in.
"As these projects go through, bird life in the park will
explode," Scruggs said.

governments are expected to cooperate in funding for wet-
Dennis Hunt, owner of Ocean Harbor Marine in Pom-
pano said sales at the show this year topped previous records.
Hunt said he sold 72 performance boats, runabouts, fishing
boats and cruisers.
"People are buying boats again. We also did some financ-
ing on the spot," said Jim Bohart of Hunter Marine.
Industry optimism is traced to brisk sales and bigger
crowds at recent shows held throughout North America. For
example, the Toronto International Boat Show and St. Louis
Boat & Sports Show, both strong regional shows, saw atten-
dance gains in the 16 percent range.
Notable among this year's shoppers were current owners

VIRGINIA KEY Miami's Marine Stadium, a 6,400-

According to the National Marine Bankers Association,
interest rates are at decade lows, while loan approval rates are

The emergence of multi-hulled sailboats at the sailboat
show venue was hard to miss. From 6 multi-hulls scattered
throughout the docks three years ago to 25 vessels dominating
an entire dock and good parts of two others this year, the show
was a microcosism of the boating market as a whole.
A host of celebrities including Former President Rich-
ard M. Nixon, Mitch Miller, Sammy Davis Jr., and talk show
host Phil Donohue and New York's GovernorMario Cuomo
have appeared at the 30-year old stadium.

BOC Transatlantic Challenge to begin in July
Special to the Waterfront News
The BOC Transatlantic Challenge will start from Fal-
mouth, England on July 3. The 3,500 mile course will take
single-handed competitors to Charleston, South Carolina -
the starting point for next year's BOC Challenge Round-
The race is open to monohulls only and is part
of the newly announced four-year program of
events for the Single-handed Monohull World
A $50,000 cash prize has been promised
by sponsors. And the race will conform to new
stringent guidelines for the world champion-
ship program covering safety, in-port facilities,
communications and promotion.
Port Pendennis will host the event in Falmouth. New
floating docks will be built for the event.
The pre-race social calender will include a pre-race party,
an inshore exhibition race for the 60- foot maxis, and racing on
Cornish working boats for the single-handed skippers.
Charleston Mayor Joseph Riley, Jr. is thrilled.
"Charleston will welcome the arriving BOC Transatlan-
tic Racers and provide them with the hospitality of America's
most charming city," he said.
Charleston was selected to host both the BOC
is Challenge and the BOC Transatlantic race be-
cause of its natural harbor and long time mari-
time tradition, race officials say.
... i The race has two classes. Class 1 for
S ,* boats of 50 to 60 foot LOA that meet the
design standards of the Single-handed
27Z7 Monohull World Championship. Class 2 for

Classes now offer hobbyist boat maintenance skill
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News Writer
Those seafarers hoping to hone their boat maintenance
skills may want to investigate the local school system.
Classes offered at area high schools and some vocational
schools now accommodate the hobbyist along with students
looking for a career in the boating industry.
In Broward County, McFatter Vocational Technical Center
in Davie offer courses on boat building, small marine and
diesel engine maintenance.
Students can learn enough to build a boat often
complete a dinghy during class hours. One advantage to the
student class is the extra help that's usually available from
... Students work to a schedule, learn-
ing to read blueprints, build boat molds
andfinanlly produce a completed hull or
repair a hull...
"We had a 26-foot Luger sailboat kit- delivered here in
15 boxes and it was here more than a year before the owner
finally completed the boat," said boat building instructor
Often studentsare permitted to work on their projects
outside regular class hours, sometimes borrowing a school's
valuable tools, instructors say. Those interested in building a
boat are required to provide their own materials.

Jim Ludway, an engineer with Miami's Channel 7, says
he's become almost a career student.
"I'm a dinghy builder," said Ludway who owned a 32-
footer on which he lived, and a 23-foot sloop both victims
of Hurricane Andrew.
Instructors Richard Archer and George Thomas say
knowledge can be life-saving when crises arise far from home
in unfriendly waters.
In Lugheed's class, students work to a schedule, learning
to read blueprints, build boat molds and finally produce a
completed hull or repair a hull.
Archer's mechanics tend to progress at their own pace.
"We work from learning activities packages, and manufactur-
ers are cooperative in selling us engines for hands-on experi-
ence," Archer said.
"A student can study a mechanical process at a VDT until
it's firmly committed to memory, then go to the shop and test
newly acquired skills on an engine," Archer said.
The program takes high school students to a level where
they can find entry-level employment in the boat building

Since then, Robinson has self-published four more cook-

had originally intended to keep the vessel for their own
personal use, but tax reasons forced them to start their own
charter boat business, Robinson said.
"We were also getting bored and we wanted to work. We
had a boat and decided why not let other people enjoy it with
us," said Robinson, who obtained her captain's license from
the U.S. Coast Guard after two years at sea.
Although their business had a 65 percent clientele return,
the Robinsons eventually sold the boat in 1991 to concentrate
on the cookbooks.
These days when Robinson isn't writing a new "Ship to
Shore" volume or going on the road for promotional tours, she
and her husband divide their time between homes in the Virgin
Islands and Charlotte.
In addition to "Ship to Shore," Robinson has authored a

"If anyone told me 14 years ago that I was going to be a
yacht captain and write cookbooks, I would have told them
they were bonkers," she said.
But for those who know Robinson, this latest foray
should come as no surprise. It is one of several careers she has
held since leaving her native New Zealand.
Before sailing off to become a charter boat captain and
galley chef, Robinson worked as a public relations agent for
seven years in London and was a real estate developer in
Charlotte, North Carolina.
Her husband, Bob, also led a varied life as an attorney and
a civil engineer.
When the couple retired in 1979, they bought a 60-foot
motorsailer named the Vanity to cruise the Caribbean. They

Her first book, "Ship to Shore," is now in its eighth

was published in 1986, is in its sixth printing and has sold
Her latest effort is a text on low-calorie cooking, "Slim to
Shore." It should be completed in September, she said.
In each of the books, recipes list the chef's name and
yacht, preparation time, ingredients and simple directions. In
some cases, recipes also include recommended garnishes,
explanations for the proper use of cookware and galley gadg-
ets and a listing of French and California wines for selected
Because the chefs are of different nationalities, much of
the cuisine reflects a global menu that includes such dishes as
Pina Coloda pancakes, Chicken Musharti, Dolphin Delightful
and a Much Better Than Sex Cake with pecans and chocolate
"We have recipes from Greece, America, the Caribbean.
There's a little bit of everything," Robinson said.
Even though she jots down the recipes of other chefs,
Robinson is no slouch when it comes to finding her way
around a kitchen.
In addition to being president of the Professional Yacht
Chefs Association in St. Thomas, she is an active member of
The American Institute of Wine and Food and holds certifi-
cates from the Cordon Bleu Cooking School, the Ritz Cooking
School and the Culinary Institute of America.
But no amount of classes had prepared her for cooking in
a ship's galley. That was something she learned through
"Initially, it took a lot of organization," she said. "You
have to learn how to get all your shopping done at the store
because if you run out of something you can't hop off the boat
once it's out at sea and run back to the supermarket."
Galley cooks also need to know which items are perish-
able and which will keep for the duration of their trip, she said.

But buyers of her books shouldn't have too many prob-
lems. Most prefer to test the recipes in their own kitchens,
rather than out on the water, she said.
"I'm surprised I've been able to do so well for a self-
publisher, but then again I knew the recipes were fabulous and
we had a very good product," she said. "I have no intention of
going back to the charter boat business. Cookbooks are my

Raspberries make for refreshing fruity chicken dish
By NANCY LYONS
Waterfront News Food Columnist
This is one of our daughter's most prized recipes. She
prepared it for us on board our boat, the Mimi III, and now I
offer it here as a potential favorite for you.
I suggest starting the Raspberry Butter Sauce ahead of
time, making the dish a breeze to prepare for company or
simply as a quick elegant dinner.
Raspberry Vinegar Butter Sauce
*3/4 cup (6 oz.) cold unsalted butter cut into 12 pieces
*3 tablespoons minced shallots
*3 tablespoons raspberry vinegar
*1 tablespoons water
*Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
Melt one tablespoon butter in small saucepan over low
heat. Add shallots and cook about two minutes until soft but
not brown. Add vinegar and water, simmering over medium
heat until liquid is reduced to two tablespoons. Stir in cream

Waterway is an escape route through Lake Okeechobee
By HANK JONES

Getting away from it all doesn't necessarily involve far
distant places and self-sufficiency. Okeechobee Waterway is
an escape route to a change of scene, new and inviting ports
of call, gateway to a circular cruise and all of it close to
There's little new here, but the long-popular trip is
worth a reminder for newcomers and veterans who might
like to retrace the route.
Back in 1962 a now-battered copy of Inland Waterway
Guide reported: "One of the most interesting cruises you
can possibly make is that which takes your craft clear
across Florida by water. You could come back the same
way or, as so many do, cruise around the southern tip of
the Florida peninsula, through the Keys and then on back
up the Atlantic coast.
"Going across Florida is only a little jaunt of 139
nautical miles from the Atlantic to the Gulf, but if you
complete the circle around the tip of florida and back to our
starting place this adventurous cruise will total 416 miles."
The Guide (updated) remains required reading for this
cruise, along with charts 11428 SC and 11427 SC,
respectively covering the area from Stuart to Fort Myers
and then on down the Caloosahatchee to the Gulf.
There are numerous marinas and shore accommodations
along the way on the east coast, and a favorite westbound
jumping-off place is Stuart's Indian River Plantation and
Even before leaving home, and again before embarking
on the crossing, call ahead to determine water level at the
lake and the condition of the locks. Low water can be
equally disruptive to a crossing. Information can be
obtained from the Corps of Engineers, Clewiston at
813/983-8101, or Jacksonville at 904/791-2539.
The phone numbers are worth using since the Corps
also will provide helpful in-transit information like the fine
map/folder "Welcome to the Okeechobee Waterway," with
helpful notes on recreation areas along the way.
Years ago the crossing was marked by sightseeing -
miles and miles of ranches and Florida cattle. Today, there's
more of the same interspersed with farming and more
inviting places to step ashore along with prime fishing.
The trip, of course, can be undertaken from either
direction and is. From Stuart it's up the St. Lucie River
and the St. Lucie Canal to Lake Okeechobee transiting the
St. Lucie and Mayaca locks east of the Lake and the Moore
Haven, Ortona and Franklin Locks on the Caloosahatchee
River, between the Lake and the Gulf.
Locking here is simpler than in most northern waters,
but inexperienced boaters are well-advised to tell the
lockmaster and to follow his suggestions.
Lake Okeechobee is noteworthy: lethal (note the 1928
hurricane), shallow and capable of kicking up quickly as
visibility drops. It also provides great fishing grounds. This
is the second largest freshwater lake in the continental
United States, and the largest such within one state.
Once in the Lake there's a possible side-trip to the
northern end of the Lake, Okeechobee city, and southwest
to the mouth of the Kissimmee River. Then it's north
through the chain of lakes to Kissimmee with a lot of
solitude and back-country boating.
The direct lake transit connects Port Mayaca and Moore
Haven less than 35 miles and is known as Route #1.
One alternate is a diversion about halfway along the run
to Moore Haven a change in course leads to Clewiston,
thence to Moore Haven.
Cling to the shoreline and the rim canal passes lake
communities, with a call at Clewiston before the short run
to Moore Haven. Clewiston provides a pleasant shore
respite at the popular Clewiston Inn.
The lake crossing can be fast or leisurely depending on
the amount of exploring to be done along with the study of
wildlife, bird watching and fishing.

Tidbits and folk lore from
past life on the sea
By JOE ROACH
Special to the Waterfront News
Landlubbers (and maybe even some sailors) probably
don't realize that a number of today's well-worn phrases
originated with yesterday's life on the sea.
For example, strict discipline on early sailing ships often
forbade crew conversation. So special places aboard ships
became hideouts where men could talk freely.
One such place was where water was stored in casks
called "butts." The storage place was known as a "scuttle."
Thus the gossip-linked term "scuttlebutt."
*Who's considered "the father of piracy?" A fellow by
the name of Pierre le Grande who plied his trade in the West
Indies. His claim to fame is that he is one of the few pirates to
capture a Spanish treasure ship successfully. While the gal-
leon's crew slept, he and his men took the huge ship as aprize,
divided the silver in her hold, sailed off and retired from the
sea. Pierre lived ashore to a venerable old age.
*Ever wondered how the "spinnaker" got its name? No
one knows for sure, but... In the 1860's the owner of a racing
vessel named the Sphinx invented a sail rigged at right angles,
extending from masthead to deck, and ballooning out to take
advantage of the slightest breeze. The crew had difficulty
pronouncing the ship's name, calling it "Spinnicks." So this
new sail was called the "Spinnicker's sail" and finally wound
"It brings meekness and inspiration from the decency of
nature, charity towards tackle makers, a mockery of profits
and egos, a quieting of hate, a rejoicing that you do not have
to decide a darned thing until next week."
"Recipes," continued from page 15
oil and one tablespoon butter in a large heavy skillet over
medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts and saute'about three
minutes on each side until golden brown. Transfer to ovenproof
platter and keep warm.
Cook pasta according to directions on package.
At this point you're ready to finish the Raspberry Butter
Set pan of shallot mixture over low heat and bring to
simmer whisking. Add two pieces of chilled butter and whisk
until blended. Then whisk in remaining butter one piece at a
time, making sure each piece is blended before adding the
next. Remove pan from heat as soon as last piece is blended.
Keep sauce warm in uncovered bowl on rack above hot, but
not simmering water.
Transfer pasta to large skillet over low heat. Add chives
and one third cup of sauce, toss and adjust seasonings.
Remove to platter and arrange chicken on top, spooning sauce
over each portion. Garnish with whole chives, or asparagus
spears and raspberries. Pass remaining sauce separately.

Kissimmee river restoration gets boost from land donation
Special to the Waterfront News
The South Florida Water Management District recently
approved the acquisition of 423 acres of land important to the
restoration of the Kissimmee River.
The property once belonged to Edna Pearce Lockett,
Florida pioneer and Highlands County's "First Lady of
Politics," who died-in 1991. In exchange for the donation of
land, the District has agreed tobuy 615 acres of the Lockett
Of importance to Lockett's heirs was the preservation of
certain historic structures on the 423-acre property. Among
them: the 120-year-old home where Lockett lived, the site of
the first ferry and bridge that crossed the Kissimmee, the site
of Fort Bassinger of the Seminole War era, and an indian

acquire other lands within the Kissimmee River Restoration
"We are delighted with the generosity of Mrs. Lockett's
heirs and their recognition of the importance of this contribu-
tion," said Tilford Creel, district executive director. "We
would hope that others with property along the Kissimmee
River would be willing to consider donating their land to this
critical environmental project."
for Biscayne Bay Cleanup
Boats and volunteers are needed for this year's Bay
Cleanup Day, Saturday, May 1, 9 am. to noon. Seventeen
sites are currently scheduled for the county-wide cleanup.
Boats, large and small, are needed at Oleta River,
Pelican Harbor, Dinner Key and Homestead Bayfront Park
to transport volunteers to and from the bay islands. The trash
stays on the islands and is picked up by the county the
following Monday. All volunteers will receive a Baynanza
tee-shirt and a cold drink for their efforts.
If you can help with boat transportation or want to
volunteer for the cleanup, please contact David Ettman at

Andrew's fury leaves nature
unscathed, scientists say
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News Writer
In some ways, nature appears to have been better
equipped to survive Hurricane Andrew than man, two
researchers recently said at Broward's Environmental
Although havoc was widespread, nature has already
begun renewing itself, said Dr. Michael Soukup, director of
South Florida Research Center, Everglades National Park,
and Dr. James Bohnsack, research fisheries biologist, Na-
tional Marine Fisheries Service.
Plant materials in the park were damaged, and studies
are underway on 12 endangered species.
So strong were storm winds that pebbles were driven 12
feet off the ground into pine trees.
While a monitoring station was trashed, snails weath-
ered the storm well. Although pines trees were knocked
down, heavy stands of pine in developed areas suffered less
damage.It appears a screening effect prevented even wild
winds from penetrating dense stands of trees.
Some 70,000 acres of mangroves were flattened, but
these already are showing new growth, Soukup said.
Deer, panther, and endangered Everglades kites also
appear to have weathered the storm.
And if an ill wind blew some good results, workers now
are embarked on melaluca and Brazilian pepper eradication
projects. Against melaluca it's a hack and squirt drive with
a herbicide, while spraying also appears to be effective
against the pepper trees which threaten to spread to the
Within the park, Soukup said, there are questions about
telapia, but the extent of any impact on this fish has not yet
In the sea, fish also apparently survived well in a coral
reef environment that Bohnsack described as a "rain forest
Three reefs are under study, one inshore, the second
termed a middle reef, and the third offshore. Bohnsack
reported "no obvious changes in the fish community after
the storm. They appear to be well-fed. In general, the
communities appear fine."
S-f the reef itself, the comment might be, "What hurri-
cane? We can see very little damage. Some coral has been
turned over, sponges have been turned over, and the devel-
opment of coral may be impaired.
Offshore, if anything, the damage is higher, with some
coral thinned out, but it's not as bad as people anticipated,"

DANIA- In the face of stiffening regulations, how can
mariners and members of the marine industry minimize
pollution in marinas and boat yards?
Boaters will be expected to cooperate with marine indus-
tries workers to keep our waters clean.
Industry representatives learned about problems and their
solutions during a pollution prevention workshop that fea-
tured a Marinas and Boatyards Section. Representation,
however, was slim with about 300 persons in attendance, and
a fraction of that number in the marine section.
The Dania meeting was sponsored by Florida Chapter,
Florida Associtation of Environmental Professionals; Brow-
ard County Department of Natural Resource Protection, and
the Metro-Dade Department of Environmental Resource
The meeting might be viewed as a foretaste of a stepped-
up campaign by government and industry leaders. Initially, a
"33/50" campaign was introduced to reduce pollution by 17
pollutants with a formula of 33 percent reduction by 1992, and
50 percent by 1995. Officials now are gearing up to meet 1995
George Riley, director, Environmental Monitoring Divi-
sion in Broward for the Department of Natural Resources
Protection, highlighted points made by section leader Joe
King of the same department.
"Concerns of the industry focus on.discharge into water-
ways and canals," Riley said. "Marine maintenance facilities
are likely to be identified as the culprits, with bottom work on
boats an important factor. -
Sediment, in the form of copper, tin and zinc deposits, has
been measured in increasing amounts in local waters.
Veteran boaters know that both the Miami River and the
New River have bottom sludge so polluted that dredging
becomes a problem when there is no up site for dredged
Regulation of polluters comes under the authority of the
Coastal Zone Management Act, and waterway facilities are
being targeted to control and minimize waste processes that

"We developed 'best management practices' to control
and minimize waste in processing," Riley said. The practices
apply in two broad areas: control and education.
Building berms around boat washing areas creates recov-
ery areas to prevent pollutants from washing into waterways.
Pollutants can then be recovered, just as in a car wash.
"The pressing problem is with particulate paint," Riley
said, but such pollutants are easily handled.
Boat wash water can be filtered and recycled for later use.
Recovered pollutants can be disposed of safely.
Riley said, "are trying to generate cradle to grave respon-
sibility for waste materials."
Everyone knows waste materials will be generated, ma-
rine-section participants were told. The solution to polluting
depends on assuming responsibility for managing waste cre-
ated by individuals on board boats, as well as by management,
workers, and skippers in marinas and boat yards.
Listeners also heard Lori Cuniff, Metro-Dade Environ-
mental Resource Management, discuss how to conduct a
waste audit in a business. County representatives will conduct
audits, on invitation, but management can cunduct its own
ouch, or pre-audit before a government inspection.
Utilizing "Best management practices with respect to
pollutants almost always results in money-saving practices
that minimize waste. Much of the program can simply be
good housekeeping practices," Cunniff said.
An oil spill, for example, can be cleared with a reusable
absorbent pad, not "spill dry" which is a disposable commer-
Evaluate a boat part scheduled for cleaning: Does it have
to be clean? How clean? Is brush cleaning as satisfactory as
a polluting solvent?
Even in the home, Cunniff said, proper use of pollutants
can help solve problems. Are pollutants thrown out, or held
for proper disposal? She said non-toxic cleaners often are less
expensive than pollutants.
Vinegar and water with lemon juice, can be effective as
commercial products for cleaning windows, and less expen-
sive. Rather than toxic cleaners to clear clogs, a solution of
baking soda and vinegar, regularly used, keeps drains clean at
