Marinas struggle to rebuild in wake of hurricane


By JENNIFER B. HEIT
Waterfront News Writer
hen Hurricane Andrew
slammed through two
south Dade marinas on
Biscayne Bay, county
park officials knew it would take time to
rebuild.
What they did not anticipate was such
long delays.
A year later, boaters still can't moor at
Matheson Hammock and Blackpoint Mari-
nas. Dockage facilities remain battered and
useless, and construction is stalled while
county officials await needed funds from
FEMA.
"We thought we'd be fully operational
by now," said Lauren Gail, spokesperson for
Dade County's Parks and Recreation.
"There's disputes on everything."
But the two county parks are now open
on a semi-functional basis, offering the pub-
lic boat ramps, fishing and picnicking areas.
At Matheson Hammock, once lush man-
groves stand bald and twisted. With limited
electricity, water and no fuel pumps, the
former 252 dock facility caters only to trailered
boats.
"Some days it's actually oppressive,"
says park manager Jeff West of his hurricane-
remodeled workplace. "The lights aren't on,
the fans aren't working."
Complicated by bureaucracy and wide-
spread damage, reconstruction has come
slowly.
So far about $1 million in FEMA fund-
ing was directed to the county party system,
far too little to make a dent in such a massive


rebuilding project.
Other county parks include Crandon Park
and Homestead Bayfront, both fully func-
tional.
County officials have submitted over
3,000 reports that estimate a $5 million repair
bill for Matheson Hammock and Blackpoint,
two of south Dade's most damaged marinas.
But FEMA is questioning the costs and re-
quiring additional surveys.
"We're trying to come to an agreement,"
Gail said. "We have a lot of anxious boat
owners. It's getting harder and harder to get
your boat in a marina."


'We thought we'd be
fully operational by
now. There's disputes
on everything.'
-Lauren Gail,
Dade County Parks spokesperson.


At Blackpoint, gone is the marina's res-
taurant, bait and tackle shop, 178 wet dock-
age slips, 300 rack storage spots and 30
percent of the park's staff who fled the area
after Andrew for safer ground.
During the hurricane, boats were flicked
around like stray golf balls, leaving millions
of dollars in damages.
Now,people picnic and fish off the banks,
and seem undistributed by the scarred struc-
tures around them. On weekends the parking
lots grow crowded with trailered boats.
In July, a new fence went up and about


300 palms, coconut trees and oaks took the
placed of downed foliage.
About 60 boaters await Blackpoint's new
facilities, predicted to be in place by Novem-
ber.
Last year at this time, the marina was
over 100 percent filled.
"It's very depressing," said dockmaster
Jay Bogaards of the marina's current condi-
tion. "Once it was big, vibrant. People were
coming. It's a lot quieter."
The picture is much the same at Matheson
Hammock. In June, the park tried to open dry
storage to boaters, but found the parking lot
unsafe to carry the weight of cars and boats,
said dockmaster Ralph Dodge.
Now, curious park visitors sometimes
get too close to the storm-weakened docks.
"You have to worry about people falling
on the debris," West said. "In some ways, it
was easier.when we were closed."
By January, park officials hope to have
at least two piers in place. A total renovation
is hoped for by April.
New building techniques will include
state-of-the-art technology meant to better
withstand hurricane winds, officials say.
"That's the plan we keep running into
roadblocks," Dodge said.
Meanwhile, about 100 boaters remain
on a waiting list for dockage, Dodge said.
Boat owners now keep their vessels at
marinas located farther north or are rafting
off friend's docks, dockmasters say.
"People who wouldn't ordinarily accept
anyone behind their houses are doing it now,"
Bogaards said.

Black divers unite through national organization
Black divers unite through national organization


Once 'white sport'
now attracts minorities
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
For years, African-American scuba divers have rarely
been seen or heard.
But a national group is changing the public's perception
abouttheir contributions, while encouraging more minorities
to participate.
"For too long, di 'ng has been perceived as a white sport,
even in the black community," said Ric Powell, president and
co-founder of the National Association of Black Scuba Divers.
Powell, along with marine biologist and fellow black
diving enthusiast A. Jose Jones from Washington, D.C.,
founded the association, also known as NABS, in 1991.
Both men, who were U.S. Navy SEAL divers in Vietnam,
first gained public attention in 1988 after being featured in an
article on black scuba divers in Ebony magazine.
In response to the story, letters soon began pouring into
Jones' office, Powell said.
"We heard from black divers who said they were sur-
prised to see there were other blacks involved with the sport,"
said Powell, who teaches English at Jose Marti Middle
School in Hialeah Gardens. "They felt they were the only
ones."
That's no longer the case today, however. Since its
formation, NABS has 23 affiliated chapters throughout the
United States and the Caribbean, including the South Florida
Black Divers.

The South Florida Black Divers has 30 members who
participate in monthly meetings and outings, said Hank
Jennings, club president.
"I've been a member of other dive clubs, but this seems
more personal," said Jennings, a computer systems designer
from Miramar. "Maybe it's because we have more in com-
mon outside of diving."
'For too long, diving has
been perceived as a white
sport, even in the black com-
munity.'
Ric Powell,
National Association of Black Scuba Divers
Maurice Andrews, who is active in NABS and the South
Florida Black Divers, said being part of both organizations
has enhanced his participation in the sport.
"I not only get to dive. I get to network with African-
Americans from different professions," said Andrews, a
commercial diver and boat captain from Fort Lauderdalc.
Still, there are those who question the need for a black
scuba diving association, he said.
"The question comes up quite frequently, mostly from
whites, and we usually wind up defending ourselves against
accusations that we are trying to segregate the sport," Andrews
said.
But for too long, blacks have not been encouraged to
dive, he said.
"It's not that we're racist or trying to discourage whites

from joining," Jennings said. "Our membership is open to
everyone and we have many ethnic groups represented. What
we're trying to do is encourage blacks."
Black youngsters, especially, need role models, Powell
said.
"Otherwise it will be looked upon as something we can't
do or don't do," he said.
But socializing isn't NABS' only function. Over the
years, the group has been active in promoting environmental
awareness, providing scholarships for minority students, or-
ganizing dive certification classes for inner-city kids and
studying marine science, Powell said.
From a cultural standpoint, the groups have also been
involved in publicizing the Henrietta Marie, a 17th century
slave ship that was sunk off Key West.
Remnants, including shackles and the ship's bronze bell,
were discovered by Key West treasure hunter Mel Fisher in
1972.
Shortly after NABS was founded, divers from the organi-
zation began doing extensive research on the vessel and
installed an underwater marker at the sight of the wreck,
Powell said.
The marker was placed during NABS' annual dive sum-
mit in 1992. The group meets at different locations each year
in November, Powell said.
The next one is scheduled for Nov. 10 to Nov. 14 in the
Bahamas, he said.
For more information on the upcoming convention orany
of NABS' activities, contact Powell at 652-6135. For infor-
mat ion on the South Florida Black Divers, call Hank Jennings
at 593-4398.

Mural artist paints environmental seascapes
Mural artist paints environmental seascapes


Dolphins play dominate

role in renderings

By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Tropical fish, their brilliant colors glistening in the sun,
swim peacefully with other sea creatures on a reef dotted with
bright orange and red corals
But on-lookers don't have to don scuba gear to view this
tranquil panorama. Just take a drive to Quality Inn Resort in
Pompano Beach where a likeness of a huge aquarium faces


mural, as does a giant 35-foot-long humpback whale, which
dominates the painting and is its centerpiece.
The Quality Inn mural is Vose's biggest project to date,
but it isn't his first attempt at bringing the sea's unchartered
depths to life on land.
He recently completed two seascape murals on both sides
of an Isle of Venice apartment building, off Las Olas Boule-
vard in Fort Lauderdale.
One wall shows a dolphin. The other displays a leopard
ray. In the foreground of each are tropical fish and corals.
Another of Vose's sea murals can be seen at Gold Coast
Pawn Brokers, 714 N. Federal Highway, also in Fort Lauder-
dale.
Vose's inspiration for the underwater vistas came from
several books on reefs that he keeps at his Fort Lauderdale
home.
"I pretty much draw from my heart, but if someone wants
to be technical I will do research to make the painting look
more realistic," he said.
Vose, who didn't start his artistic career specializing in
sea scenes, said he hopes the murals open up new avenues in
pursuing other ocean-related subjects.
"I really like doing the aquatic scenes," Vose said. "There's


such an array of fish. It's a challenge to try and capture their
beauty."
Vose, 37, came to Fort Lauderdale 15 years ago, via
California. The New Hampshire-born, self-taught artist settled
in South Florida because the year-round weather is more
conducive to painting outdoors.
His specialty is trompe l'oeil, which are realistic images
such as a window ora doorway. One such scene is the airplane
crashing through a wall, painted on the side of the Side Pocket
Pub in Pompano Beach.
Other works include a moonscape at the Museum of
Discovery and Science in downtown Fort Lauderdale and a
rain forest mural in the dining room of the Quality Inn in
Pompano Beach.
It was the latter mural which got the resort's owner,
Romulo Desouza, to contact Vose about painting the under-
water scene on the Quality Inn.
Desouza is considering expanding the mural to another
wall so that it appears to have a wrap-around aquarium effect,
Vose said.
"Underwater scenes are very populardown here," he said.
"And why not? Why should people, who aren't into diving, be
deprived of seeing the ocean's beauty?"


iIuiorJsts cruising %*-1 A.
Since the mural's unveiling on Earnir Tt-'
five-story seascape has netted plenty of attention from passers-
by and guests, said John Barba, the hotel's general manager.
"We've gotten a lot of positive comments," he said.
"People actually stop and pose for pictures in front of it."
That's good news to the mural's artist, Mark Vose, who
spent four weeks on scaffolds completing what he hopes will
be seen as a larger-than-life plea forenvironmental awareness
of the deep.
"I've watched a lot of documentaries on the needless
slaughter of dolphins," Vose said. "If I can raise a bit of
consciousness, then I'll feel gratified that I was able to do
something to help save the world's oceans."
Dolphins, in fact, play a prominent role in the hotel's

WI IRKS


ByAL GRODSKY
S~ Marine Mechanic
:. I have a generator
that shuts off suddenly. A few
minutes later, I can start it up
again and it will run great be-
fore it shuts down for the second time. I can't figure it out -
everyting looks good.
A: Here's a few possible explanations:
Starvation of fuel.
Low oil.
No water cooling the engine'.
Loose or broken wires breaking contact.
Check your fuel filter first and then check your automatic
shut d wns.
Q. I have an older wooden boat made in Europe many
years ago. It's beamy, comfortable and in pretty good shape.
However, the wooden stringers are rotting and the engine
is loose. Can I replace these supports with something other
than wood?
A: These wooden supports have lasted for years and
will do a fine job when replaced.
Hopefully, the boat is in as good as shape as you say since
the work involved is none too cheap. I only hope your boat is
worth the expense.


Q: My boat never runs without some black or blue
exhaust smoke coming out. Changing the oil and filters
doesn't help at all. The engine sounds good and has power.
Do you think I need a ring job or an overhaul? Mechanics
I've asked say I need a motor job.
A. Black smoke means the choke is closed or the gas
is running down the carburetor's throat. The gas then dilutes
your oil, causing blue smoke.
After running the engine a while, take a compression test.
This ill tell you if you need motor work.
Y I took the Coast Guard Auxiliary boating course and
passed. But the mechanics portion of the course was too short
and only whetted my appetite for more knowledge on marine
engines. Where can I find an extended course?
A- Mechanic courses are available in many schools
including those on engine and diesel operation. Auxiliary
courses only teach safety basics.

Al Grodsky is a marine instructor for the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary. Write to him at the Waterfront News,
1523 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, Fla., 33316.
Readers can also visit Al Saturdays from 9 a.m. to
noon at the USCG, 601 Seabreeze Blvd., Fort Lauder-
dale.
Al regrets he can not answer reader's questions
directly.


Certification important to med classes


To the Editor:
I am compelled to write to you regarding an article that
appeared in your July issue by Beth Feinstein-Bartl, entitled
"Classes Prepare Mariners for Emergencies at Sea."
Unfortunately, the author left out an issue of key impor-
tance: certification.
It's great to have boaters and commercial mariners under-
standing the concepts of how to save a life at sea, especially
since, as Dr. Doolcy points out, "You can't dial 911." How-
ever, it should be noted that performance of any or all medical
procedures -cither on land or at sea requires some proven
level of proficiency.


In this day of lawsuit happy attorneys, where there seem
to be more sharks on dry land than in the water, proper
certification is one of the only protections against legal action
a mariner may have. This is especially true since there is no
existing standard for medical training in the marine commu-
nity.
Before employing any skills learned in a classroom or
seminar, the mariner should ensure he or she has the proper
certifications, with the alotted number of training hours to do

Congressman speaks out on water pollution
Below is an open letter from Congressman E. Clay Shaw to clear message that also addresses those property owners
Fort Lauderdale City Manager George Hanbury: who rent their dock space to liveaboards.


To the Editor:
As taxpayers and residents of Fort Lauderdale, a clean
environment is one of our most important rights.
I believe there is a way to encourage boaters to visit
our beautiful city-and yet not leave their pollution in our
rivers.
My challenge to the city of Fort Lauderdale is to
provide a responsible, yet boater-friendly law that sends a


The message is this: We want you here, but we insist
that you dispose of your sewage properly as all civilized
people do.
Just because we are known as the "Venice of America"
doesn't mean we have to dispose of our waste by allowing
the tide to be ourdisposal system.
E. Clay Shaw, Jr.,
Member of Congress

REWARD W


Speed limit markers to be posted on ICW


Many boaters

unaware of new law
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Boaters who didn't know that the speed limits
on Broward County's Intracoastal Waterway have
been reduced from 30 to 25 mph, don't feel bad.
You're not alone.
The state law went into effect in June, but few "
are aware of its existence because of a lack of MB 7
signage of the water. ,
Markers are scheduled to be posted sometime
by late summer or early fall. Until then, the Florida ~t .
Marine Patrol will focus on promoting education
about the new rule, rather than issuing citations right
away, said FMP Capt. Sam Cory, Broward deputy
district commander.
"You can't expect people to obey the speed
limit when there's nothing on the water telling them
to slow down," he said. "But if we warn someone
and then see them violating the law the following day, we'll
issue them a ticket."
Reduced speed limits were passed by the Florida Cabinet
in May after a four-year study targeting hazardous conditions
on Broward's waterways.
The law affects the Intracoastal and some of the rivers and
canals which feed into the waterway. Speed restrictions on
these routes apply to year-round travel.


Also, boaters cruising between Port Everglades and the
Palm Beach County line must drop their speeds to "slow" on
weekends from Nov. 15 to March 31.
Offenders caught speeding will be fined $50, plus $4 for
every mile over the posted limit, Cory said.
State officials say the rule is designed to help cut back on
boating-related accidents and to protect manatees. But some


*:~~BE i!"-~

local boaters feel it's just another rule on the books that won't
be enforced.
"It's a joke," said Jim Albe, former commodore of the
Gulfstream Sailing Club in Fort Lauderdale.
Albe's 40-foot sailboat is docked on a canal, off the
Intracoastal near Birch State Park. Not a day goes past when
he doesn't witness boaters flaunting speed limits, wake rules
and noise restrictions.


you can't enforce the rules that are already on the
how are you going to do it with these new speed
he said.
far as I'm concerned, it's a lot of talk," Albe added.
you're willing to double the size of the Florida Marine
id concentrate on enforcement, nothing will happen."
iia City Commissioner Bill Hyde feels the same way.
As an avid boater and waterfront homeowner,
Hyde said he's also seen speed and wakes rules
broken by boaters over and over again.
"To me, it's just a way for the bureaucrats in
Tallahassee to justify their existence," said Hyde,
who does vessel maintenance at Port Lau Dania.
"Geez, how many rules can you make?"
Patrick O'Donnell, a member of the Pompano
Beach Marine Advisory Board, is also opposed to
the new law.
"The larger vessels won't be able to get on a
plane,"he said. "The slower speeds will make them
sit deeper in the water, increasing their chances of
doing more damage to manatees with their propel-
ler blades."
Cory disagrees. He says large vessels won't be
traveling at 25 mph because it would mean violating
ich wake law.
for predictions that the law won't be enforced:
)u can't pass a law based on how much many tickets
k will be issued," said Florida Marine Patrol Capt.
amphear. "Obviously, the ideal solution is public
n and support."

* Deteriorates creating varnish, sludge and gums
This causes-
- Clogging of filters ana ruel lines
* Slow starting
* Loss of power
* Expensive damage to injectors, injector pump and carburetor
* Damage to valves, pistons, and rings necessitating costly overhaul

Waterfront neighborhood making a come-back


Waterfront neighborhood making a come-back


After Andrew: Gables By

the Sea rebuilds, replants

By JENNIFER HEIT
Waterfront News Writer
CORAL GABLES On a Sunday afternoon, Gables-
by-the-Sea seems almost like it used to in its pre-Andrew
days.
Then, peace and quiet prevailed. People walked on tree-
studded streets. And they rode their bikes past impressive
waterfront homes with equally splendid boats docked on
adjacent Biscayne Bay.
Now, it's the sounds of construction residents notice
most. Roofs are being tiled. Windows replaced. Interiors
reworked.
But on Sundays the workers are off. "I walk and I say,
'wow,'it's so quiet," says resident Jane Morrison, who lived
aboard her boat for two months after the hurricane. "Every-
thing is disrupted. You have teams of workers here every
day."
Some residents complain that a myriad of updated city
and county building codes has slowed renovations.
"That's why you're not seeing the progress you see in
other areas," said Realtor Minnie Lauderdale, who predicts it
will take another year and a half before the neighborhood
returns to normal.
Zoning codes dictate what
type of roofs residents can Libby M ah
install and which paint colors
can be applied to the exterior foot sloop, ir
of houses. d ,
Homeowners must also dock piling,
submit landscaping plans to in her
the city and even pull permits
to have dead trees cut down,
said John Little, assistant di-
rector of the city's building and zoning department. Lines of
people applying for permits reach to the steps of the third
floor, Little said.
There's very specific design requirements," he said.

Disputes with insurance companies and contractors have
also slowed rebuilding.
"It's very frustrating," Lauderdale said. "You have a
combination of factors going on."
Gables By the Sea is bordered

Red Road on the west and Avenue

whose home was one of the worst hit. "They haven't quite
come back yet."
When Andrew hit August 24, no house was spared from
damage, says Libby Mahaffey, president of the neighborhood's
homeowner's association.
As windows blew out, water from a 17-foot storm surge
poured inside.
A year later, many houses are up for sale. Some appear as
if they've been abandoned.
"Quite a few people took the insurance money and left,"
Mahaffey says. [But] the ones that have come back, have
come back with gusto."

Beach renourishment proceeds despite court battle


Beach renourishment proceeds despite court battle


By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News Writer
OCEAN RIDGE The state has decided to move
forward on a badly needed beach renourishment project
despite a court battle over who is responsible for the work.
The beach restoration project will cover 1.4 miles of
shoreline, beginning just south of the South Lake Worth Inlet
and ending just south of Boynton's Oceanfront Park.
"We feel something needs to be done no matter what the
court says, and so we have convinced the county administrator
to give the go ahead and therefore we're proceeding with the
design of the project," said Bob Clinger, an environmental
analyst with DERM.
The project is expected to cost about $4.9 million and
could begin as early as the summer of 1995, depending on
timely approval and permitting by the Department of Environ-
mental Protection.
Palm Beach County and the South Lake Worth Inlet
District Commission were the respondents in a suit filed by the


town of Ocean Ridge and the state Department of Natural
Resources. The court ruled that the town of Ocean Ridge was
not receiving enough sand on one its beaches and that the Inlet

'We feel something needs
to be done no matter what
the court says.'
Bob Clinger,
state environmental anaylist.

District and the county are responsible for renourishing the
beaches.
The decision was appealed last December and are still
awaiting a verdict from the court. The Sebastian Inlet District
has also intervened in the suit on the side of the defendants, as
this could be a precedent setting case for all inlet districts in
terms of liability for beach erosion.


Whatever the outcome of the appeals court decision,
officials at DERM have applied to the Department of Environ-
mental Protection for construction permits to perform a beach
renourishment project at Ocean Ridge.
Clint Thomas, an environmental analyst with DERM,
said the project will involve placing groins and breakwaters
around the inlet to control the movement of sand into the inlet.
The structures would also be used to prevent sand from
moving onto near-shore rock outcroppings, which provide
habitat for marine life.
The structures are expected to help drastically reduce the
environmental impacts currently affecting the beaches be-
cause it will help taper the effects of the erosion which has
been created by the inlet and its jetties.
In addition to the breakwater structures, the beaches will
be renourished from a sand deposit located in 35 feet of water
offshore.

Seagrape trimming at heart of Hampton dune restoration


By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News Writer
PALM BEACH A condo's plan to trim its beachfront
seagrapes so residents will have a unobstructed ocean view
has environmentalists concerned about the impact to the
vegetation.
Robert Cotleur, architect for the Palm Beach Hampton
dune restoration project, presented the plans for the additional
seagrape trimming and dune restoration at the Countywide
Beaches and Shores Council meeting held last month.
Cotleur is seeking a permit based on using the project as
an experiment to determine the effect of seagrape trimming on
the dune and on the plants themselves.
Palm Beach County's Department of Environmental
Resources Management (DERM) is likely to issue a special

Boating survey to
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News Writer
PALM BEACH- A joint survey of boating patterns, and
commercial and public usage of the county's dockage facili-
ties has been completed.
The study, conducted by the Marine Industries Associa-
tion of Palm Beach County and the University of Miami, will
be used to form state-required boating safety and manatee
protection plans.

permit for the project with certain conditions attached.
"As long as they can do the monitoring that we require and
provide sufficient assurances that they can carry it out, then
the project is likely to be permitted," stated Barbara Conmy,
environmental program supervisor with DERM.
Conmy explained that only one other permit for this type
of permit has been issued to date, and that permit had a number
of conditions attached to it, including an in-depth monitoring
of the seagrape root system, the sediment system, and docu-
mentation of the effects to the stability of the dune system.
Conmy added that the current coastal ordinance provides
for seagrape trimming down to a height of 10 feet, and there
are a lot of unknowns as to the effect of trimming below that
height.
Jim Barry, environmental director with DERM, noted

that the 10-foot limit for seagrape trimming was established
based on a number of factors, including durability of the plant,
impact to the dune system, and shielding of lights which affect
turtle nesting and hatchlings.
Barry stated, "We don't really want to write this permit,
but we don't have enough ammunition to sustain the county's
case."
Should a permit be issued for the project, the condo-
minium will be allowed a one-time trim of its seagrapes to a
height of 3.5 feet. The project will then be monitored for three
years to examine the impacts to the dune system and the plants
themselves. The parties involved will then be examining the
data to determine minimal effects, or if doing such extensive
trimming has a detrimental effect on the plants and the shore
protection system.

Lauderdale angler wins Gold Cup a second time


By ANDY NEWMAN
Special to the Waterfront News
ISLAMORADA Fort Lauderdale resident Glenn Flutie
once again became overall champion of the Gold Cup Invita-
tional Tarpon Tournament in the Florida Keys.
Flutie, 34, and his guide, Harry Spear, took only three
days to catch and release five tarpon from 112 and 132 pounds
on fly tackle with 15-pound-test tippet.
Tournament rules awarded 10 points-per-round for fish
released in excess of 70 pounds and 100 points-per-released
tarpon weighing 70 pounds and under. Weights were calcu-
lated mathematically by measuring length and girth of each


fish prior to its release.
Flutie's score of 6,400 points was the highest ever re-
corded in the Gold Cup's 30-year history. His performance
surpassed a 5,982.5-point record previously held by Islamorada
angler Sandy Moret.
"We were very fortunate," said Flutie, an advertising
executive. "All of our fish ate [the fly], kept their mouths
closed on the hook and we were able to land them."
Flutie dedicated his second straight win to brother Steven
Flutie, who died last year at the age of 35, after a bout with a
rare form of cancer.

Single-handed sailors dominate the seas with small boats,


By HANK JONES
Waterfront News Writer
FORT LAUDERDALE It appeared all the ships at sea
carried skippers -but no passengers when solo captains com-
pleted a round-the-world junket, a west-to-east crossing of the
Atlantic.
It all happened within a matter of days, but not without obstacles
to overcome.
Leo Remer, 66, led the way after sailing solo around the world
and arriving in Fort Lauderdale three years later. The neophyte
skipper on his first long-distance blue water cruise had left Mobile,
Ala. in April, 1990, in his 35-foot Tradewind, which had been built
for him a year earlier.
He traveled 35,000 miles, surviving a cyclone in the Pacific. He
completed his journey with a sprint from Gun Cay in the Bimini
chain, Bahamas to Fort Lauderdale.
The retired financial manager had gone around the world, but
still had the protected voyage from Fort Lauderdale to Mobile Bay
ahead of him.

sailing he had the experience to make it to port.
Like Ramer, McNally sailed through high winds, which delayed
him during the voyage.
Hugo Vihlen, 61, a former airline pilot who has once before
conquered the Atlantic in a small boat.
Hugo Vihlen's Father's Day is a five-foot, four-inch boat like
McNally's. But the half-inch difference in size could prove to be the


difference between a place in the record books and a footnote.
Vihlen crossed the Atlantic in a six-foot boat 25 years ago. and
is out to reclaim the record.
Last year he attempted to sail from North Carolina when the
Coast Guard threatened to arrest him. This year good cruise condi-
tions were reported off Cape Cod, but again the Coast Guard, not the
sea, was the nemesis.
Eventually Father's Day launched from St. John's Harbour,
Newfoundland, en route to Falmouth or any convenient English
Channel port.
No one calls Vihlen a quitter. He has announced that if he
doesn't make the crossing this year he'll ship his craft to Portugal and
try the west-to-east trip next year.
Reportedly, even before Vihlen was mile offshore, he was
otherwise occupied when Father's Day jibed, and a boom lashed to
the deck broke loose. After quick repairs, he was on his way.
After a week at sea, Vihlen called his family to report he was
about 115 miles offshore on his 1,800 nautical mile cruise.
Vihlen, incidentally, reportedly has folded his five-foot, eight-
inch frame into a boat four inches shorter than he is.

Good food but slow service at popular Florida City eatery

By JENNIFER HEIT-ZIEGLER
Waterfront News Reviewer
Even a hurricane couldn't blow the Mutineer down.
In hard hit Florida City, the restaurant reopened two
days after Andrew, a point of pride to owner Alan Bennett.
Generaters kept the place going for a month while staff


cooked hamburgers for police and relief workers.
Bennett says he owes his good fortune to his own
handiwork: he built the structure himself. All that blew
away was an air conditioning units on the roof.
Today, the Mutineer is crowded, despite the traditional
summertime slump. And there's no sign anywhere in the
vicinity that a hurricane had plowed through a mere year
ago.
Located north of Key Largo where tourist traffic is
plentiful, it's obvious the Mutineer does a steady business.
In keeping with the tropical landscape, patrons will find a
seafood-dominant menu that's not without several beef and
chicken options.
There's all the local standards: Florida stuffed lobster
with a tasty crabmeat stuffing ($17.95), fried shrimp
($12.95), stuffed grouper ($14.50) and a whole dungeness
crab ($16.95).
On the whimsical side is a creation called the "crusty
crustacean," ($14.95), a mix of shrimp, scallops and crab
baked inside a puff pastry shell that's shaped like a fish.
Also available is scallops Monaco ($13.95) covered with
shrimp and a hollandaise sauce.
For starters, we picked from a salad bar that appeared
fresher than most standard fare, offering a nice variety of
veggies.
A word here about service: although the waitress was
pleasant enough, we waited at least an hour before our
dinners made it to the table. We received no explanation,
from the waitress except a causally tossed remark about
how she couldn't understand the delay.


Despite the frustration, we have decent things to say
about dinner. The snapper almondine ($14.50) was broiled
with flavor and tasted appropriately moist. Shrimp stuffed
with crab and lightly fried also won respect.
But a guest's chicken breast Wellington ($11.95) did
not live up to expectations, tasting more like a chicken pot
pie than an actual Wellington, proving once again the
validity of ordering house specialities.
And for desert, Key lime pie ($3.25) and carrot cake
was only so-so. But a large slice of "3-D" chocolate cake
would be worth a repeat performance.
Meanwhile, another challenge was in trying to get the
waitress' attention for a second cup of coffee. Even getting
her to accept payment turned into a chore. Unfortunately,
the poor service put a crimp on what could been a much
nicer experience.

Try summer fruits for both light and rich desserts


By KAREN STOW
Waterfront News Food Writer
On a recent trip to Nantucket aboard a private motor yacht, I was
inspired by the fruits of summer. These recipes are versatile, easy to
make treats.
With a little imagination, you can substitute any summer fruits
on hand such as plums, nectarines, strawberries raspberries and
blackberries to create a refreshing ending to any meal.

Blueberry Pie

I ready to bake pie crust, dairy section of grocery store
5 cups fresh blueberries
2/3 cup of sugar
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp. fresh, grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 Tbs. corn starch
1/4 cup cold water
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Place pie crust into a 9 inch plate.
Prick sides and bottom of crust with a fork and finish the crust edge
with the tines of the fork.
To prevent crust from bubbling up, place one cup of pie weights
or dried beans inside the uncooked pastry shell. Bake for eight
minutes: then remove dried beans. Return pie crust to the oven for an
additional four or five minutes, or until golden brown. Cool crust on
a wire rack.
While crust is baking, wash blueberries, drain completely and
pick through for any leaves and stems. Set aside 2 1/2 cups of berries.
In a medium saucepan, combine remaining berries, sugar,
lemon juice, lemon peel and cinnamon. Combine cold water and
corn starch whisk until smooth. Add corn starch to saucepan.
Over medium heat, slowly bring blueberry mixture to a boil,
stirring constantly. Boil gently for two minutes. Remove saucepan
from heat and cool for five minutes.
Place remaining blueberries-in the bottom of the cooled pie
shell. Spoon cooked blueberry mixture over the top. Refrigerate for
at least four hours. Spoon on top cinnamon scented whipped cream.
Serves 6 to 8.


Peach blueberry crisp

Filling

8 to 10 ripe, medium peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/2
slices
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup sugar
3 Tbs. allpurpose flour
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. ground cloves
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice

Topping

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup dark brown sugar
10 Tbs., 1 1/4 stick, chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
I tsp. each of grated lemon and orange peel
1/8 tsp. salt

Forfilling: Combine peaches and blueberries together in a large
bowl. Sprinkle with lemon juice. In a small bowl combine remaining
four ingredients. Toss sugar mixture with peaches and blueberries
until evenly coated. Set aside.
For topping: Combine flour,
brown sugar, lemon and orange peel
and salt. Cut in butter until mix-
ture resembles a coarse meal. If
using a food processor, com-
bineall ingredients andpulse
on and off until mixture
forms small clumps.
Preheat oven 350 de-
grees. Butter a 13x9x2
bakingdish. Spoon fill-
ing into prepared dish -
and sprinkle topping
evenly over filling.


Bake for about 45 minutes, until fruit is tender and topping is crisp
and golden. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or vanilla yogurt.
Serves 8.

Wine berry sorbet

2 cups light, fruity red wine, such as red zinfandel
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp. fresh grated orange peel
I whole cinnamon stick
I cup raspberry nectar, seeded pureed juice, I to I 1/2 pints
2 Tsp. Chambord Liqueur

Combine first four ingredients in a medium non-reactive sauce-
pan. Bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring occa-
sionally. Reduce heat, simmer for 5 minutes. Strain liquid and cool.
Mix wine mixture with raspberry nectar and Chambord. Pour
liquid into a shallow dish. Freeze for at least four hours.
Before serving, process sorbet in food processor until reaching
consistency of shaved ice. Scoop sorbet into a wine goblet or ice
cream dish. Garnish with fresh raspberries and a sprig of fresh mint.
Serve immediately. Serves four.

Air rescue squad returns to Homestead air force base


By HANK JONES
Waterfront News Writer
HOMESTEAD South Florida boaters who have applauded
the planned restoration of Homestead Air Force Base have a double'
reason for praise.
The U.S. Air Force's 301 st Rescue.Squadron (reserve) has been
designated for redeployment to Homestead after having been dis-
placed to McDill AFB, Tampa, following Hurricane Andrew a year
ago. Air crews of this unit regularly lend help from the sky to boats
and boaters in need.
Rescue squadrons often are deployed around the globe as the
need arises, or as operational readiness missions are scheduled.
For six years the 301st had been recognized as "best reserve
unit" in the air rescue business, and in 1992 was awarded for

outstanding achievement.
The Albert P. Loening Trophy for the best reserve unit had gone
to the 301st after six consecutive competitions for best reserve rescue
unit. Another recognition came with the Air Force Outstanding Unit
Award during more than 36 years of accident-free flying.
In Operation Desert Storm, Technical Sergeant Paul Miller was
based only 30 miles from Iraq's border when his MH-60 helicopter
picked up a pilot downed only 40 miles from Baghdad.
Viet Nam also brought recognition in National Geographic
magazine when Howard Sochurek wrote: "They are among the
bravest and most selfless men I have ever know."
Recently, the 301st helped rescue a capsized boat near Ocean
Reef.


As needed, the 301st also is tasked with searching and recover-
ing U.S. Air Force and Department of Defense personnel, rescue and
recovery support for manned flight operations from Cape Canaverai.
lending assistance to foreign governments and civil aviation when
directed, and provide humanitarian and relief operations.
Definitions can be stretched when tests of abilities to perform
real-life functions are involved.
There was quick approval for the mission when two sick and
stranded whales were discovered near Key West. The whales were
loaded aboard helicopters and flown to Miami Seaquarium where
they received medical attention. Later, the two recovered whales
were flown to a pod of pilot whales located about 150 miles cast of
Miami.


Coast Guard distributes test electronically


WASHINGTON, D.C. In a move to protect the integrity of
exams taken by U.S. Merchant Mariners, criticalsections of the tests
are now being distributed electronically to testing centers across the
country;
This electronic distribution allows the Coast Guard to update the
exams more often without the contents becoming common knowl-
edge.
The idea is to ensure that licensed and documented mariners
have met requirements necessary to pass the examination. With more
than 80 percent of marine casualties traced to human error, mariners


need to be better educated, Coast Guard officials say.
Last month the Coast Guard released publication of its New and
Revised Merchant Marine Examination Questions. The publication
provides deck questions developed since 1991 through January of
this year for public review and comment. New questions reflect
changes in marine industry technology and will help candidates
prepare for the tests.
To order the publication, number 050-012-00336-0, call (202)

Oriental, NC: An historic town meant for boating


Historic sights, good

dockage accommodations,

await visitors

By SCOTT D. YOST
Waterfront News Travel Writer
If Jimmy Buffet sailed the coast of
North Carolina more often there would
probably be a song or two about Orien-
tal. It's a boater's town.
Many boaters merely stumble
across the place stopping in for fuel
or food but once they do, they usu-
ally end up coming back.
One of the best keep secrets on the
eastern seaboard, Oriental is a peculiar
and charming town. It's a place where
you can get a 25-cent hamburger in a
"restaurant" where everything else is
regularly priced. You can even have a
pizza delivered directly to your boat by
Scoot's Pizza (provided you're not at
sea, of course). It's a place where they -a ,. -
don't celebrate the Fourth of July at all
- since that would interfere with their
annual Croaker festival. And, best of O l
all, it's a place without traffic lights -
because almost all of the traffic is on
the water.
Here, small boats on short journeys to the Neuse River
dock next to large boats moving from New York to Miami for
the winter. The waterfront, older homes refurbished as sum-
mer cottages, and bicycles everywhere (due to the extremely
flat land), all add up to an almost European feel.
As a departure point for boats, Oriental's location is a gift
from Poseidon. Going in any direction is almost always
pleasant boating since Oriental rests on the Pamlico Sound
with a vast expanse of protected water in front of it.
You'll find interesting ports in virtually every direction,
and many weekend sailors at Oriental leave their plans open
-they decide where to go when they wake up in the morning
and see which way the wind is blowing. Sometimes it blows
them west towards historic New Bern, sometimes south
towards festive Beaufort, and sometimes cast towards the
quiet Outer Banks.
Off the boat, Oriental is also accommodating. At Red's,
for instance, you can get a good hamburger for a mere quarter,
and Red throws in his life story free of charge, whether you

perfect for watching the sunset. Many locals say that this
sunset with the waterfront, the marinas, the antebellum
homes, all back lit with gold is among the most beautiful
in North Carolina.
It's no surprise then that there are more couples in love

here, per square mile, than anywhere else in America. You
can't even walk down the docks in the evening without
running into lovers kissing, and even couples married for
years look like newlyweds. Oriental is especially romantic,
couples say, in the fall, when the strong, cool, ocean breeze
makes snuggling a necessity.
Another draw is the Croaker Fes-
tival-so called after the grunting fish
of the same name which comes
complete with hats that look like croak-
ers, street dances, a small parade, a big
Fish fry, and a young woman with the

Croaker. The festival is held in leu of
the fourth of July but, so as not to be
too un-American, they do have fire-
works at night. Many people opt to sail
out into the harbor and watch the fire-
works from the water.
New Year's Eve is another time

A word on history: the town was
settled in 1780 by Lou Midyette, when
a storm forced him to stop on a trip from the Outer Banks to
New Bern. He checked out the place, liked what he saw, and
came back to buy the land. When the village needed a name in
order to qualify for a post office, one of the Midyette ladies
thought back to 14 years earlier when she'd found a ship's
nameplate on the beach after a storm it said "Oriental."
Whittaker Creek Yacht Harbor is Oriental's largest ma-
rina. It comes equipped with deep slips, a friendly staff, a
ship's store, showers, courtesy cars, a laundry room, a me-
chanic and, opening this month, a dcli. The city docks arc
another good place to take down your sails. If you need
repairs, there are two marine maintenance and repair facilities
at Oriental: Deaton Yacht Service and Sail Craft. Likewise, if
you want to buy a boat, you have a number of choices. Several
shops cater to the tourists, and it's easy to find a Bed and
Breakfast.
So there's no good excuse not to visit, but beware: you
may, like so many others, end up staying longer than planned.

Plans under wai
By LINDA REEVES
Waterfront News Writer
Barely visible beneath about 20 feet of choppy ocean, for
93 years the coral encrusted skeleton of a shipwreck has rested
about a mile off Pompano Beach.
Now, the state is planning to create an underwater park
and archaeological preserve out of the wreck.
"The wreck satisfies the criteria," said Roger Smith, who
is spearheading the project for the state. "It has historical
significance it is a nice diving area and it's a place where
folks might like to go."
In May, 1900, the Copenhagen, a 325-foot British steam-
ship loaded with coal, was traveling from Philadelphia to
Havana when it rammed a reef ledge, according to Steven
Singer of the Marine Archaeological Council of Fort Lauder-
dale. Singer, author of "Shipwrecks of Florida" spearheaded
the historical research on the Copenhagen.
Later, the ship was even used for target practice by U.S.
Navy pilots who were training in Fort Lauderdale during
World War II. Over the years, salvagers and scavengers have
picked the vessel clean.
Today, wooden and steel pieces of wreckage are every-
where along a long stretch of sand floor. The ship's rusted
steel ribs of it's lower hull protrude from the bottom. Steel

buoys.
Through time, the ship has drawn a large variety of fish
and other sealife, making for excellent underwater photogra-
phy.
The Copenhagen will become Florida's fifth underwater
historic park. She will join Urea de Lima, a Spanish galleon
off Fort Pierce; the San Pedro, a Spanish galleon grounded in
the Florida Keys; the USS Massachusetts, one of the nation's


Currently, the state has earmarked four other wrecks to be
preserved in the shipwreck park program. Michigan and
Vermont have similar parks.
"The entire coast is scattered with wrecks,'" Singer said.
"It is good that we protect them."
Bob Good, owner of Orbit Marine in Fort Lauderdale,
thinks the preserve will be a big plus for the area. "The site is
one of the prettiest dive spots we have," he said.
James Spirek, field director for the state's Division of
Historical Resources, says about 30 preserves will be devel-
oped around the state.
"We want divers to know something about the sites they
are exploring and to gain an appreciation for them," he said.
"We want to continue to promote and preserve these valuable
pieces of history."
If you would like more information about the
Copenhagen or ifyou have a wreck in mind that you would
like to nominate for a future shipwreck park, the state
would'ike to hear from you. Write to James Spirek, field
director, Pensacola Shipwreck Survey, Department of
State, 212 East Church Street, Pensacola, Florida 32501.


Vacationers discover the 'Age of Aquariums'


"The kids must have stayed at the kelp forest for an hour,
watching the divers feed the fish," said vacationer Kristin
Boneger.
The Bonegers were visiting Montercy's old Cannery row
to see the Monterey Bay Aquarium, a showcase for the
underwater creatures that inhabit the bay.
The Bonegers have just discovered what Newsweek
magazine calls "the Age of Aquariums."

Shedd Aquarium
Chicago's John G. Shedd Aquarium is more than dou-
bling in size. Since its opening in 1930, the Shedd was the
granddaddy of modern aquariums.
Then came the new wave ofsuperaquariums in Montercy,
New Orleans, and Baltimore. In April, the Shedd expects to
open its new Oceanarium.


Aquariums and sealife shows differ in their approach to
education, said Jennifer Berk, spokesperson for the National
Aquarim in Baltimore. "Others take a them park approach."

National Aquarium
The National Aquarium in Baltimore has just opened a
new marine mammal pavillion with a"Voices From The Sea,"
a multi-media show with live whales.
Spectators watch from a 1,300-seat theater completely
surrounding the 1.2 million-gallon whale tank. Underwater
microphones actually broadcast the whales "songs."
Since it opened in 1981, the aquarium has become
Maryland's most popular tourist attraction More than 5,000
creatures from around the world are displayed in reproduc-
tions of their natural habitats: piranha from the Amazon,
puffins from the North Atlantic, sharks, flashlight fish, sea


horses and poison-dart frogs. Moving sidewalks carry visitors
from gallery to gallery.

Aquarium of the Americas
New Orlean's aquarium opened last fall on the riverbank
park where the French Quarter meets Canal Street. Visitors
staying in Cajun County day-trip to places like Baton Rouge,
the capital, and rustic Cajun Settlement, built on a bayou.
Displays include a rainforest, Caribbean and Amazon
habitats, a touch tank where kids can feel the fish and a
Mississippi River habitat where visitors can see alligators,
sturgeon, paddlefish and snapping turtles.
Visitors actually walk below a Caribbean reef, through a
transparent water tunnel.

The art of waterskiing: A sport for all ages


It's the spray in the face and the pull of the boat that
attracts many to water skiing.
Water skiing is a sport for the whole family drawing
elementary school children to 80-year old grandmothers.
To help the newcomer, here's a few tips from ski experts
at Yamaha Outboards:
Practice the proper skiing position before putting on your
skis or life jacket.
"Knees bent, arms straight and feet together is the proper
skiing position," says Mike Seipel, a professional water ski
instructor from Thiensville, Wis., "kind of like you're sitting
in a chair."
According to Seipel, here's a quick overview of the
elements of proper skiing position and why they are impor-
tant.
Knees bent: Your knees act as your shock absorbers and
balance beam. If you keep your knees bent, waves are made

Sport accessories
Water skiing has come a long way since its birth in 1922,
when Minnesotan Ralph Samuelson strapped two boards on
his feet and was towed behind a boat. Over time it has
developed into an international sport that's become a weekend
"fix" for millions of Americans.
More than 15 million people in the
United States waterski, according to the American Water
Ski Association. The sport has also caught on in more than
40 countries world-wide.


Free guide show
Most boat explosions occur soon after refueling,
according to the Boat Owners Association of the United
States. Just a half-cup of gasoline spilled in the bilge can
blow a boat to pieces.
BOAT/U.S. offers a free guide to refueling procedures
and inspecting fuel systems for gas-powered boats. Here's
some tips from the guide:
*When taking on fuel, close all hatches and ports, shut off
the battery switch and turn off the stove. After fueling is

smooth and you don't fall. Besides, what sporting activity is
done with straight knees?
Arms straight: Keeping arms straight means the boat does
all the work, which is good. This reduces fatigue and helps to
alleviate soreness at the end of the day.
Feet together: Keep your feet close together when coming
out of the water, and about shoulder width apart after you
plane out. This gives you a solid base.
"If you're teaching someone to ski make sure they know
and understand what proper skiing position is before they ever
get in the water, so you don't end up yelling over the engine
noise," said Seipel. "Today's quiet engines make being heard
much easier, but face-to-face communication is the best."
Practice the deep-water start on land before putting your
skier in the water.
First, have the skier put on the skis and sit down on the


STROLQUM


tails of them with a rope in his hands. Then, slowly go through
the motion of pulling the skier from the seated position to a
skiing position, with another person playing the part of the
boat.
Make sure the skier stays in correct position, and while
the boat pulls the skier up. Do this several times so your skier
can get the feel of being pulled up."
Get used to having skis on your feet. Have the skier learn
to put his skis on in the water before you leave the dock, and
then swim around with them on. This may sound silly, but skis
tend to float your legs in ways they don't want to go. It also
helps to not have the pressure of trying to learn to put on and
handle your skis at the same time you're learning to ski.
Have fun!
"Skiing is a great sport, Seipel said. "Follow these simple
tips, and increase your skiing fun while teaching others."

*Stop filling the tank when it's 90 to 95 percent full. Gas
expands as it warms and could overflow if the tank is filled to

U.S. marine exports overcome world market decline


Special to the Waterfront News
CHICAGO The U.S. pleasure boat industry shipped
$907 million of marine products to international markets in
1992, maintaining a.favorable trade balance. But last year's
trade surplus was smaller than its peak in 1991,reflecting both
a decline in exports and a rebound in imports.
The slip during 1992 was off the previous year's pace by
eight percent and down 10 percent from the one billion dollar
benchmark set in 1990.
But according to Robert Moyat, statistics manager for the
National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA), the
numbers are better than anticipated given the worldwide
economic downturn in key export markets for American
boating goods.
Marine manufacturer also found pressure on domestic
margins in 1992 as importers competed for renewed life in the
U.S. boating market. Imports were up 27 percent for the year
to $511 million, compared with $403 million in 1991.
Shipments of boats into the United States increased by
25 percent in 1992 to $257 million, reversing a three year
decline. Much of this gain came in the outboard category,
while inboard and sailboat sectors particularly higher-
priced models impacted by the U.S. luxury tax showed
declines. Imports of inflatables and sailboards went up 36
percent, while engine imports went up 28 percent.
Canada remained the largest foreign supplier of pleasure
boats to American consumers again in 1992. Canadians actu-


America's love

affair with boating
One in every three Americans went boating lasi year,
and boaling-related activities continue to grow in popular-
ity.
U.S. Coast Guard data compiled by the Yamaha Ma-
rine Information Bureau shows that more than 74 million
Americans, about one-third of the total population, partici-
pated in recreational boating in 1992. This is and increase
of about 100.000 from 1991.
In addiliin, Americans spent o cr $10 billion on nwc
and used boating and boating-related products last year.
Michigan leads the way \ ith the greatest number of
registered boats, followed by California, Minnesota and
Florida.
Here are the top 10 boating states for 1992. the latest
year for which statistics based on registered boats are
available.

California 815.730
Minnesota 723,071
Florida 685.389
Texas 600,329

ally sent more boats to the U.S. than they imported last year,
disproving earlier predictions that the Canadian Free Trade
Agreement would allow U.S. manufacturers to overwhelm
Canada's domestic producers.
Together, Canada and Japan accounted almost entirely
for the overall increase in boat shipments to the U.S., holding
55.4 percent and 14.4 percent of the market respectively.
Taiwan, Singapore, and France were the other principal
sources of boat imports into the U.S. in 1992, with 10.3
percent, 3.6% percent and 2.8 percent market shares.
At the same time that Canadian manufacturers have been
finding more success in the U.S., American exports to Canada
were also climbing. In 1992, Canada was the only major U.S.
export market to experience growth,.absorbing $138 million
dollars worth, or 20 percent, of U.S. made boats.
While some European countries showed modest increases
as importers of American boats and others declined only
slightly, shipments to Japan were off by almost 50 percent.
Nonetheless, Japan remained the third largest destination for
U.S. marine goods in 1992, importing nearly nine.percent of
all boats. Germany, the second leading market for American
boats, saw a slight increase in inboard boat imports by a sharp
51 percent decline in the sailboat sector.
Overall, the export market for sailboats was off 19 percent
in 1992, down to $52 million from $64 million in 1991.
Inboard and sterndrive motorboats, which annually make up
about two-thirds of U.S. export shipments totaled $451 mil-


lion, down almost 11 percent. The dollar value for worldwide
exports of outboard boats declined by 20 percent during the
year.
A number of tax measures in Europe, including the EC
wide value-added tax (VAT) to be applied to all new boats,
"registration taxes" in Italy, and a threatened luxury tax in
Spain, further cloud the European picture.
But on the positive side is the adoption of uniform
standards for recreational craft by EC countries to ease inter-
national trade and reduce non-tariff barriers. Japan's commit-
ment to Marina '99, calling for a substantial increase in the
number of marinas and boating facilities, also bodes well for
U.S. manufacturers who can wait out the recession in Japan's
boating market.
Closer to home is the favorable opportunity presented by
the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and the
strengthening of Mexico's economy. Ongoing promotion of
tourism and coastal marina development by the Mexican
government, combined with a phase-out of 20 percent boat
import tariffs by NAFTA could provide the catalyst for
accelerated development of Mexico's market.
Some industry sources anticipate that the Mexican mar-
ket could easily absorb $50 million in boats underNAFTA, up
from the $10 million in U.S. boats currently exported to
Mexico.


Luxury tax may be replaced with diesel fuel tax


Special to the Waterfront News
WASHINGTON The 10 percent luxury boat excise
tax could be replaced with a 20-cent diesel fuel tax aimed at
recreational boaters as part of a new proposed bill.
"Elimination will restore thousands of jobs and rescue
hundreds of small businesses," said Jeff Napier, president of
the National Marine Manufacturers Association."
About 25,000 jobs were lost since the tax was first
implemented in January 1991, he said. If eliminated, 5,000
workers would be needed to fill orders conditioned on repeal
of the tax, he said.
But others protest the measure, saying it will shift the
burden of taxes onto about 400,000 boaters who own diesel-
powered vessels, said Richard Schwartz, president. In con-
trast, only about 2,000 people a year buy boats costing over

$100,000, he said.
"It is even more unfair to require diesel boat owners alone
to pay a new tax so that those who purchase expensive fors,
jewelry, airplanes and automobiles can be relieved of their tax
burden," he said.
If enacted, the diesel tax would go into effect on Jan. 1.
Although tax packages containing repeal of the luxury tax
have reached this stage twice before only to be defeated in
partisan crossfire industry officials and congressional
supporters are more optimistic about the current bill's pros-
pects.
Most Washington observers are predicting that compro-
mise legislation meeting the President Clinton's approval will
emerge by the end of July.

HERITAGE



Tidbits and folk lore from past life on the sea


By JOE ROACH
Special to the Waterfront News
Do you know how a ship's crow's nest got its name?"
Early sailing ships kept a coop containing land birds high on
their masts. When storms or wind drove a ship out of sight of
land, the birds would be released and the helmsman followed
them toward land.
OKey West was once the wealthiest city, per capital, in the
United States. Wrecking was the name and salvaging was the
game that brought immense prosperity to the island during the
1828-1860 years. During those days it was the city's biggest
industry. A great many people were engaged in salvaging
goods from vessels that were wrecked on the nearby reefs -
in warehousing, banking, ship repair, legal and insurance
matters, shipping, and other activities attendant to the busi-
ness.
Auctions attracted bidders from around the Gulf, the West
Indies, even from northern cities. Those were great days in
Key West when the cry of WWR-E-C-C-K-K- ASHO-O-O-
R-E!! was heard across the island.
*The first shipping lanes came about following the colli-
sion at sea between the U.S. mail steamer Artic and the French
steamer Vesta in thick fog in October 1854. The accident
inspired Lieutenant Maury of the U.S. Navy to work out a
system of lanes to be used by ships sailing westward in the
Atlantic. In 1851 he published his ideas for shipping lanes in
a book aptly titled "Sailing Directions." It became the basis
for the approved seasonal routes on nautical charts today.
*While drifting across the mid-Atlantic in 1971, Thor
Heyerdahl and his companions tried not to rinse their tooth-
brushes in ocean water because even then pollution was

Mystic holds Antique marine engine


exposition in August


By TRICIA WOOD
Special to the Waterfront News
MYSTIC, CT- "They speak what we call 'engineese,'
says George King, organizer of Mystic Seaport's Annual
Antique Marine Exposition. 'Engineese,' King explains, is
the language of the engine collector- a dialect of power and
propulsion and the prevalent form of communication
during the Exposition.
"I felt like I was walking through an open-air market in a
foreign country," remarked a visitor during last year's Expo-
sition. "It seemed everyone was speaking a different lan-
guage. I never imagined there was so much to know about
engines.
The Antique Marine Engine Exposition is full of unique
sights and sounds. Steam hisses as it travels through pipes that
have been laid throughout the Exhibition. Hundreds of steam,
gas, diesel, inboard engines and outboard motors hum and
clank.
Some engines will be put to work in a boat parade held
each afternoon on the Mystic River.
Those who visit Mystic Seaport during this weekend will
find a famous indoor and outdoor maritime museum. Crafts-
men work their trade in the recreated 19th century coastal

visibly evident far out in mid-ocean.
*The fastest ship crossing of the Atlantic ever recorded
was made by the liner United States July 3 to July 7, 1952, on
a 2,949 nautical mile voyage from New York City to Le
Havre, France, in three days, 10 hours, and 40 minutes.
And the slowest recorded voyage? Could be that of the
British merchant ship Red Rock that took 112 days in 1899 to
make a 950 mile trip across the Coral Sea. Average speed, less
than 0.4 knots!
*The awesome might and mystery of the seas have long
captured the imagination and sparked the creativity of paint-
ers, writers, and composers. For example, a song, considered
by some a hymn, that's known and loved the world over was
written by an 18th century English sailor who went through a
perilous ocean storm and was "amazed" to be spared.
His name was John Newton. At age 11 he was sent to sea
where life on vessels of that era was almost unbearably harsh.
But he endured and eventually became captain of his own
ship.
There surely were times when his heart and spirit were
tested to the utmost by the seas and elements it was following
one such episode when, at age 23, Newton wrote the lyrics
beginning, "Amazing Grace! How sweet the sound."
Put to music the lyrics have given hope and comfort
through the years to many in seemingly desperate situations.
"Amazing Grace!" is considered an ageless classic.
*"Blue Mondays." Who hasn't had those from time to
time? It's a colorful expression, one deeply rooted in the
language of the sea. Aboard early ships a record was kept
weekly of sailors' transgressions. Punishment was meted out
each Monday morning, usually by application of the dreaded


cat-o-nine-tails. The least a man might suffer could be severe
bruises over his body .
*Throughout history many areas of the world's oceans
have been believed to be haunted, cursed, or jinxed. The
Bermuda Triangle is one of the most famous the area
bounded by lines drawn from Miami to Puerto Rico to Ber-
muda. Some think its malevolent influence extends to the
Azores. Off those islands in 1872 the brigantine Mary Celeste
was found deserted and drifting, sails set, cargo intact.
The little ship left New York early in November, 1872.
Aboard were her captain, his wife and daughter, a crew of
seven, and 1,700 barrels of alcohol in the hold.
Dec. 4, 1672, she was sighted by the brig Del Gratia some
600 miles west of Portugal and discovered to be derelict with
no one aboard. Most everything was intact, only her one
lifeboat was missing. The last entry in her log was dated
November 25, near Santa Maria in the Azores.
Many theories abound. Writers from famous to hack have
written stories about what might have happened. However, to
this day the mystery of the Mary Celeste remains one of the
most baffling in maritime history.
*That dedicated fisherman, Herbert Hoover. said: "Fish-
ing, 'tis one chance to wash one's soul with pure air, with the
rush of the brook,orwith the shimmer of thesun on blue water.
"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."
"And it is a discipline in equality of men forall men are
equal before fish."
