Sailing anglers troll for fun


& prizes


by Debi Rand
There will be over $1,000 in cash and prizes to be
given away at the Fifth Annual Sailboat Fishing
Tournament on November 12 at Harbour Towne
Marina in Dania, but the biggest winner will be the
Neurofibromatosis Foundation of Florida who will
profit from the proceeds from the event.
The Kiwanis Club of North Broward is once again
doing their fair share for charity, by hosting what has
proven to be a vary successful tournament. Last year
over 100 people in 28 boats took part with over
$2,500 being raised to benefit victims of
neurofibromatosis.
Neurofibromatosis (NF) is commonly known as
the Elephant Man's Disease and is more common in
our society than muscular dystrophy, occurring once
in every 3,000 births. Tumor growth can lead to
blindness, scoliosis, cancer, deafness, paralysis, sei-
zres, and eventual death.
"Our main goal is to increase attendance so that
while the participants are having fun, they are also


helping a very worthwhile charity," said John Ziegler,
Chairman of this year's event "The NF Foundation
calls this disease a 'devastating American health prob-
lem' and we're happy to do what we can to aid the
Foundation's work."
The Tournament begins with a Kick-off party held
on Thursday, November 10th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00
p.m. at Tug Boat Annies, Harbour Towne Marina,
Dania.
Weigh-in is scheduled from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00
p.m. with an awards ceremony at 6:30 p.m.
In addition to a $75 entry donation per boat (cov-
ering Skipper and Mate) each additional angler may
participate for a donation of $10. Various categories
of boats permitted to enter the tournament range from
mono or multi-hull sailboats to Hobie-Cat craft or
Boardsailers. A $600.00 First Place Cash Prize will
be awarded to the top boat.
For more information on how to participate in the
Fifth Annual Sailboat Fishing Tournament, please
call 524-9450, ask for the "Fishing Desk".

4 Waterfront News November 1988 News


Editor's log


Port Everglades has received permission to con-
struct an 18-acre turning notch in what was
mangrove forest on the southern end of the port.
A new 150-acre container complex encompassing the
new basin is already under construction with planned
completion slated for 1991.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services is developing the administrative
rules to implement the recently passed trbutyl-tin
(TBT) anti-fouling paint legislation. The first
draft of the rules has been published and is open to
public hearings on the proposed rules, if requested.
For copies of the proposed TBT regulations phone
Richard J. Budell at 904-487-0532.

A move to apply more stringent speed and
wake restrictions on a stretch of the Intracoastal
Waterway between Bahia Mar and the Lauderdale
Yacht Club was tabled by the Fort Lauderdale Marine
Advisory Board until their November 2nd meeting.
The board was unsure whether the City has the
authority to supercede the 30 MPH state speed limit
currently enforced on that heavily traveled portion of
the ICW. Local waterfront residents and boaters
brought the issue to the board citing hazardous week-
end conditions caused by large volumes of boat traffic
traveling at or near the 30 MPH limit.


Former Miami International Boat Show official,
John Rogers, is coming out of retirement to orga-
nize an "international boat show" in San Diego,
California. The longtime producer of the Miami show
said he missed "show business and the boating
industry."

The City of Hollywood which had recently
banned jet skiers from environmentally sensitive
West Lake refused to allow their use on the City's
ocean beaches. The Hollywood City Commission
upheld city ordinances which prohibit launching jet
skis from Hollywood Beach and ban their use within
300 yards of the shore.

A dive show is planned for Miami Beach in
November. 1st Annual Florida International Water
Sport and Diving exhibition is scheduled at the
Miami Beach Convention Center for November 10th
through the 13th.

Sea turtles saved at beach cleanup


Editor-
During the-state-wide Waterway and Beach Clean-
up on Saturday, September 24, 1988, a concerned cit-
izen flagged down the National Save the Sea Turtle
Foundation truck to report that five baby sea turtles
had been trapped for several days beneath the beach
front shower at her condominium. The foundation
immediately sent a sea turtle rescue team and found
four baby loggerhead sea turtles alive and unfortu-
nately, four dead. The woman explained that no one at
the condo complex knew who to call.
On behalf of the foundation, we implore all of you
readers to call us at 305-776-0085. If it is after office
hours, please leave a message on our answering
machine. We will respond as soon as we are able.
This is not only important to sea turtles, but to all
marine life that appears to be in need of help. Because
the babies discovered on Saturday had been exposed to


Editor's Note: Bob and Joyce Shear had pre-
cious cargo on board Monday night, October 3, 1988.
They, Judy Hicklin and Carol Berg, representing the
National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation, headed out
to sea with a single baby loggerhead sea turtle to
release the little fellow into the ocean. Mr. Shear,
who discovered the baby the previous Saturday
beneath the docks at "Yacht Center" in Pompano
Beach stated, "He was a little lethargic when we
pulled him out of the waterway, but once he rested up
a little bit, he was ready to swim forever. What I
can't figure out is how on earth did he manage to get
from the beach, into the Intracoastal Waterway and up
the canal without getting hit by a boat, especially on
the weekend!" The little loggerhead went to sea in
fine style aboard a brand new fishing boat donated by
Jim Bleech, owner of the "Yacht Center." Jim felt
that the turtle survived the weekend boating traffic and
deserved a first class ride to safety. The loggerhead,
nicknamed "Paradox" by Mr. Shear because he was
found in the wrong place at the right time, was turned
overboard by Judy Hicklin about one mile off shore
out of Hillsboro Inlet. "He's got a pretty good chance
of making it," she said as she let him go in calm
seas. "He was very lucky to be found, rescued and
helped by so many good people."

Birch/Las Olas parking lot
Editor
This is an illegal act the City of Fort Lauderdale is
trying they do not have permission or the right to
touch the Birch/Las Olas Parking Lot It belongs to
the taxpayer not to be given away to a developer.
(Below is an open letter to the governor)

Dear Governor Bob Martinez and the Honorable
Members of the Internal Improvement Fund:
On July 19, 1988, the City Commission of Fort
Lauderdale approved "The Fort Lauderdale Central
Beach Revitalization Plan". In part one, The Fort
Lauderdale Central Beach Revitalization Plan encour-
ages the City's effort to make the Birch/Las Olas
Parking Lot ("Parking Lot") available for lease or
conveyance to a successful land assembler or
developer".
Enclosed .s a copy of the land deed number 21846
for the Birch/Las Olas Parking Lot. Paragraph one of
this deed states, "The property conveyed hereby when
filled will be used by the grantee exclusively for.
public municipal purposes and cannot be sold or
leased for private purposes. Any breach or violation
of said covenants and conditions shall automatically
cause the title to said lands to revert to grantors, their
successors and assigns", which is the state of Florida.
In November of 1986, the citizens of Fort
Lauderdale voted for a Beach Revitalization Bond in
the amount of $13,787,000. Enclosed is a copy of
this ballot. No where in this Revitalization Bond
SReferendum is there any mention of the leasing or
conveying Birch/Las Olas Parking Lot to a land
assembler or developer.
Governor, this is the last 3 3/4 acres of water-front
property that belongs to the'voters and citizens of
Fort Lauderdale. I am outraged that the Fort
Lauderdale Central Beach Revitalization plan is
attempting to give away this acreage to a land assem-
bler or developer.
In conclusion, I am requesting that the Trustees of
Sthe Internal Improvement Fund of the State of Florida
become aware of the terms of this land deed. If the
City of Fort Lauderdale continues with Part One of
their plan, then the state must enforce their right to
reclaim this land.

Boat ramp

fee concerns

Editor:
For over a year the boaters using the 15th Street
rampoops, I mean parking in the lot, have had to pay
a parking fee of $4.00. If you figure a rig t day, in
each parking space, over a weekend, the City will col-
lect roughly $504.00. But that space may be used
more than once, so more monies may be collected. In
a year's time, over $26,208.00 will be collected, by
the City. Where is all the monies collected been
hiding, surely not in the improvements done that
have taken away parking.
Improvements at the 15th Street ramps must be
made to the docks, restrooms, ramps and parking area.
Those 10' pilings must go. This ramp and dock is to
be used by trailerable boats, not yachts. These pilings
make moving a trailerable boat very difficult when
passing a line either over or around these l ;b e and
tall pilings. Many smaller pending pilings along the
wall are missing, broken or swinging on only one
bolt. The concrete dock has several missing chunks
and needs repair. The restrooms could use updating
and better lighting and ventilation. The parking area
has been resurfaced and restriped but this has caused
the spaces to be smaller and the lines need to be solid
so parking a trailer can be done easily. A larger gar-
bage container at each ramp would keep trash in its
place. More trash cans along the docks and "keep the
docks clean" signs. The cleaning table could be
improved and "keep tables clean signs."
I realize repairs and such take time and money. But
the City of Fort Lauderdale certainly has our money
now and we have waited over a year. So far, all we
get is less parking, smaller spaces and something that
may satisfy the City's "Beautification Committee."
But boaters need parking and better facilities from the
"Venice of America."
I have written to the Director of Marine Facilities,
Jamie Hart, several times with my concerns and sug-
gestions for the 15th Street ramp area and have yet to
receive a reply.
I can only hope other boaters become aware and
concerned with what the City of Fort Lauderdale is
doing with our ramp and the parking fees collected.
Hopefully, repairs will be made quickly and all the
monies collected will only be used to improve,
repair and maintain the ramp at which it was collected
and not to be lost in the City's treasury.

Question -
I have an outboard approximately two years old and
have just gone through a hassle with the dealer I
bought it from. The engine locked up as I went to
start it at the ramp. When the plugs were removed,
water was in one cylinder. When the engine was
checked out the head was good, nt gasket leaks. The
dealer said the engine was in good shape and said the
water was not the engine's fault. I found no water in.
my fuel tank.
How could water get into my cylinder?
Bill
Answer -
I have run into this problem before but mostly on
inboard engines. While backing down with one
engine off, water is pushed up the exhaust and into
the manifold. If there is the slightest opening into a
valve water enters a cylinder. On an outboard, if the
engine is down while the boat is being launched and
water is pushed back up through an open port, there
is a possibility of water entering, especially if the
prop is forced around while backing down. I would
advise all outboards and outdrives to be up when
launching or backing down when not running.

Waterfront neighborhood fights developer


A waterfront neighborhood lost out to developers
in an initial battle over an access road. Broward
County commissioners October 18th approved a 275
- acre warehouse and office complex on the north
bank of the Dania Cut-off Canal between
Ravenswood Road and the South Fork of New River.
Conditions commissioners attached to the plans did
not quell neighborhood opposition.
Alandco Inc., the developer of the proposed "Port
95 Commerce Park", wants to construct a bridge
across the canal linking SW 30 Avenue with a rea-
ligned and widened Tram Road. The bridge would
have a vertical clearance of 11 feet at high water,
according to Ron Jones, a developer's engineering
consultant.
Waterfront residents who live along the south bank
of the Dania Cut-off on finger canals are opposed to
the developer building the bridge and highway
through their neighborhood.
"They're breaking up a nice neighborhood," said
resident Ann Winters at an October Commission
meeting. Scores of her neighborhood agreed with her
adding that a mature oak hammock, a local daycare
center and the waterfront ecology would be damaged
or lost if the bridge work and road widening are carried
through with.
"Protect the waterway and osprey nesting," resident


Bill Hyde warned the county commissioners. "Take a
boat ride on the canal," he suggested.
Hyde's neighbor, Scott Seyfried, a hydrogeologist
who analyzes groundwater and consults on water
resource development and management projects is
concerned that the industrial park and the construction
connected with it will cause silting problems on the
canal for boaters.
Other area residents, like Linda Binoit, claim that
agents for Alandco mislead their neighbors. They are
bitter because they say a sales agent buying homes
never told sellers he worked for Alandco, a sister com-
pany of Florida Power and Light. The developer has
bought homes along 30th Avenue to make room for
the wider access road.
The Broward County Commission in search of
compromise attached to their approval of the indus-
trial park three conditions:
*A visual barrier along the south bank of the Dania
Cut-off Canal, 4,500 feet long, 10 feet high and 50
feet wide, measured from mean high water mark.
Trees and plantings must have countyplanners'
approval and installed within six months of the
removal of existing Australian pine.
*Impact on the oak trees along 30 Avenue must be
minimal.

*If the Broward County Planning Council which
has final say on the road work approves the project,
Alandco will build a bridge and road wide enough for
four lanes of traffic but can only pave two
lanes,leaving an extra-wide median south of the canal
through the residential neighborhood.
The planning council meets October 27th to decide
on the road.

Residential dockage rental

survey hits snag


A survey of waterfront civic association members
concerning the rental of residential dockage has been
scrapped by the sub-committee of the City of Fort
Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board (MAB) charged
with investigating the widespread practice.
The subcommittee, chaired by Bob Balzer, a
southwest Fort Lauderdale waterfront property owner
and member of the MAB, learned that many of the
survey ballots in several neighborhoods had been tam-
pered with, raising doubts about the validity of any
survey results. In addition, the MAB received a letter
from the Council of Fort Lauderdale Civic
Association's president, Dr. George E. Fitzpatrick
voicing "a great deal of concern over significant
ambiguity' of the dockage survey being sent to their
members. Other critics of the survey were concerned
because those being polled were not just waterfront
property owners, but also civic association members
who may live inland.
Dr. Fitzgerald in his letter took issue with the
sub-committee's survey on two points: 1)
"...uninformed people could reach the erroneous con-
clusion the Council was sponsoring the sub-
committee...there is no direct connection...;" and 2)
the Council has "reservations about the statistical
reliability of a non-random sampling procedure."
Fitzgerald concluded, "The Council voted in favor of a
motion requesting that the Marine Advisory Board
withdraw this survey until such a time as the techni-
cal deficiencies in the survey instrument and survey
procedures are remedied."
The sub-committee and the MAB as a whole con-
curred with Dr. Fitzgerald, abandoning the original
survey. Bob Balzer, the sub-committee chairman, told
the MAB at their October meeting that he and his
group were looking to Nova University or one of the
other local institutions of higher learning to conduct a
more reliable scientific random sampling on the ques-
tion of residential rental of dockage. However, he


requested an extension of time for sub-committee to
do its work (which was to be completed by December
31st). Balzer wanted to do the survey in January when
more residents are in town. MAB chairman Arne
Carlson, disagreed with Balzer's request, saying, "No
way!" Thus, the sub-committee must come back to
the MAB with a recommendation about the dockage
issue by the end of the year with or without a survey
of opinions.
The MAB subcommittee studying residential dock
rentals will be meeting twice in November, on the
3rd and 30th 7:00 PM at Fort Lauderdale's City Hall.

The Palm Beach Sailing Club announced the
results of its Annual Commodore's Cup Sailing Race
(September 4th) at the Wednesday night meeting at
the North Palm Beach Country Club.
The 25-mile ocean race started at Lake Worth Inlet
with a spinnaker run north to a mark off Hutchinson
Island. After the start the fleet split immediately with
most boats heading about two miles offshore to pick
up the northerly push of the gulf stream. However,
the stream did not provide sufficient gain to offset the
extra distance sailed to the mark and boats that sailed
a more direct course faired best.
The return leg was a windward tacking duel wth 12
miles of covering tactics requiring lots of boat han-
dling skills. Winds remained between 15-18 knots
throughout the day.
Twisted, a J-24 sailed by Greg Hull-Allen took
overall fleet honors for the Commodore's Cup with a
very strong performance. Lightning, a C&C-33, last
year's Commodore's Cup winner sailed by Don
Carson, took second place in fleet and Wild Injun, a
J-24 sailed by Bob Peckham, took third.

Local sailors win title
Sailing out of the American Yacht Club in Rye,
New York, on Long Island Sound, seven local sailors
from the Coconut Grove Sailing Club won the pres-
tigious National J/30 Championship in September.
The crew of Hot Air III who qualified for the
Nationals by winning the Mid-Winter
Championships hosted at the Key Biscayne Yacht
Club, February 12-14, 1988, topped a 22-boat fleet
by sailing a three-day regatta placing 1-6-6-3-1, fin-
ishing seven points ahead of the second place boat,
Bebob, which had been the previous three-time
national J/30 class champion.
Hot Air III skipper David Berg borrowed a yacht
in New York named Dire Wolf sailing under good
weather conditions with wind speeds of between 5 and
17 knots for the entire race series. To get under sail
Berg and his co-ed crew spent two days overhauling
and rerigging the badly battered borrowed J/30. Other
crew members included tactician and navigator
Howard Sutter, Tim Gaffney, Michael Karsh, Phyllis
Octers, Irene Hutchinson and Denise Meroni.
This was Berg and his crew's fourth year in the
Nationals. Last year they finished in fifth place
overall.

"The 12-footer is especially valuable in the train-

said Captain Larry White, U.S.C.G.-retired and
Director of Sailing at the academy., "Intercollegiate
sailing is done in many different classes of boats, and
the TECH's are used at several important college
racing sites," continued the head sailing coach. "By
having boats of the types used elsewhere, our cadets
are better prepared to compete against the best in the
country," Captain White concluded.

t Searace date change


Miami, Florida A conflict of dates with the
Genoa, Italy international Boat Show and the incom-
plete status of several new state-of-the-art Superboats,
has prompted Miami-Nassau-Miami Searace officials
to move the date of the world's longest non-stop
powerboat race from October 15th back to Tuesday,
November22nd.
"What at first appeared a setback...is really going
to work in our favor," race director John Crouse said.
"We've now regained the entry.of the new world
Open class champion Fabio Buzzi who won the Sam
Griffith Trophy at the recent world championships in
Guernsey, Great Britian, and possibly some other
Italian and French drivers," Crouse said.
Two-time Searace champ and winner of the Searace
Offshore Marathon World Championship trophy
introduced last year, Ted Theodoli, will be back in a
new 63' express cruiser of his own make,.this time
with a pair of exotic quad-turboed 2000 hp, 16 cylin-
der modified diesel engines. Although Theodoli hasn't
said,-the hull should have a top speed of 80 mph.
The first official entry, a new Harry Schoell
designed and built Varn Infinity, a 49' Star Wars,
double stepped, triple diesel powered (3/650 hp triple
turboed), with a predicted top speed near 100 mph to
be driven by Chris Von Zwehl and Barry Roth...was


Key West hosting

offshore race

KEY WEST, Florida Keys The
Southernmost City in the continental United States-
Key West-which has played host to eight world cham-
pionship offshore races, again will be the site for the
"Indy" event of the offshore circuit that begins
Tuesday, November 8.
More than 100 high-performance boats from
around America and foreign countries will compete
for top honors in various classes during the week-
long 1988 Key West Offshore World Cup.
The three-race series will determine the best off-
shore teams and boats in APBA (American Power
Boat Association) classes. Race days are scheduled for
Tuesday, November 8; Thursday, November 10; and
Saturday, November 12. Teams with most accumu-
lated points at the end of the week will earn the title
of "World Champion" in respective classes.
The world championship race course incorporates a
portion of Key West harbor, according to John
Carbonell, race chairman for the Conch Republic
Powerboat Racing Association. this will give the
thousands of racing enthusiasts an excellent view of
the action. Best spectator areas will be from the
hotels that line the course and grandstands at Mallory
Square.
Besides race action, a myriad of social activities is
planned for the week and of course Key West offers
participants and their fans the ultimate vacation exper-
ience with excellent sightseeing, superb fishing,
shopping, historical attractions and succulent seafood
dishes.

originally.behind schedule but will make the new,
date.
Weather permitting...and it will be a major factor
in the Gulf Stream in November...'87 U.S. Open
class champion Bob Kaiser and his formidable 38' cat
with its 750 hp engines, will be a definite threat
despite having to make a refueling stop somewhere in
the Bahamas. Al Racing Specialties (Cam 2) will
provide discounted fuel in Miami with Shell Oil
(Bahamas) Limited providing free fuel for those racers
needing to refuel in the Bahamas,
Another boat which may now be able to enter the
race is a 41' SR &. D.catamaran with twin Italian
diesel, engines which may be driven by former
Olympic decathlete/turned car racer, Bruce Jenner, and
its builder Peter Stolper.
One casualty of the date switch may be movie star'
and former world karate champion Chuck Norris who
was slated to drive a 46' Scarab with twin diesel
engines. Norris may be on a movie set in Israel in
November.


Miami Vice star Don Johnson, who has become a
regular on the U.S. offshore circuit driving a Scarab
raceboat, is also a possible entrant
The favorite in the diesel pleasureboat division of
the main race will be Jim Wharton of Vero Beach,
who will race his 54' Superstar with a pair of big
1000 hp German diesel engines. The boat ran
extremely well in last year's race with smaller
engines.
Offshore superstars Tom Gentry of Hawaii and Al
Copeland of New Orleans are also expected to run in
the famous event, The later date allows Gentry to sort
out the aftermath of his ill-fated trans-Atlantic
attempt and Copeland to put the finishing balms on
his big 46' deep vee Cougar which sank in the Grand
Haven, Michigan U.S. offshore race in August.
The new Searace "100", a 110-mile race from
Miami to Bimini and return for smaller boats, has
also been moved to the new date. Former world
Modified champion Peter Hidalgo will run his 32' cat
American Dream along with an expected fleet of 15-
20 small boats.

Bridge work may impede

New River navigation
Fenders are being repaired on Interstate 95 bridges
over the South Fork of New River. Work barges may
be protruding into the navigable channel from 8:00
a.m. till 5:00 p.m., Monday through Saturday into
late November. Mariners are advised to navigate with
caution through the work site in southwestern Fort
Lauderdale.
A year ago bridge work at the same site impeded
navigation to boatyards highly concentrated on that
stretch of the South Fork.
Department of Transportation spokesmen do not
anticipate the degree of last year's blockage; however,
boaters can contact the DOT on the day-to-day status
of the fenderwork by phoning 463-4595.

Safety Waterfront News November 1988 15


First annual safe boating rally


They're off and running...safely! That is the theme
motivating a local waterfront nightspot and a national
boat manufacturer, with the assistance of the U.S.
Coast Guard Auxiliary, as they combine efforts to
present the First Annual Safe Boating Rally,
Saturday, November 19.
Safety is the means by which boaters can success-
fully complete an assigned course, as close as possi-
ble to the official time, to compete for over $20,000
in prizes, including the first prize, a Wellcraft 170
Classic. $5,000 in cash will be divided between
second and third place, with additional marine mer-
chandise for the runners-up. Registration is limited to
the first 100 boats, 17 to 50 ft. in length. A $15 per
boat entry fee will be donated.
Starting line for the First Annual Safe Boating
Rally is Shooters of Ft. Lauderdale at East Oakland
Park Boulevard and the Intracoastal. Departure.by
staggered intervals will begin at 11:00 a.m. Each boat
will navigate an assigned course, which ends at
Shooters of North Miami Beach, on the Intracoastal
at 163rd Street. Desired elapsed time will be esta-
blished in advance by rally officials, based upon all
waterway regulations including speed limits, no wake
zones, manatee zones (season begins November 15)
and all safe boating procedures.
Currently, 675,000 vessels are registered in the
State of Florida, according to the Florida Marine
Patrol Titling Office. As 73,000 new boats are
launched here each year, the need for boater education
grows significantly. The waterfront club's principal
and avid boater Reg Moreau conceived the Safe
Boating Rally to provide boaters with an information-
fun-and-prize-filled event that calls attention to safe
boating practices.
Hoping to entice participants to travel safely, a'
Wellcraft 170 Classic, powered by a 130 Mercruiser
inboard/outboard engine with an EZ Loader trailer
will be awarded as top prize.
Participation in the First Annual Safe Boating
rally will require diligence on the part ofteach cr'ew
member and conformance with Federal regulations
regarding equipment for each vessel. The bAt proof is

Lighthouse goes dark for

three-month restoration
Key West, Florida Keys The only United States
Lighthouse located in the center of a city the his-
toric Key West LighthouSe turned out the lights
October 3, 1988 and has gone into hibernation for
approximately 120 days, the amount of time esti-
mated to restore it to its former glory.
When the 140-year-old structure reopens to the
public next February 4th, it will not only shine, it
will sparkle. One of the nation's foremost restoration
architects of historic structures, Bert Bender, is put-
ting it back into ship shape.
Although times and technologies have changed
drastically since 1848 when the tower was constructed
to replace the previous one destroyed in a hurricane,
lighthouses always have held a special nostalgic spot
in the hearts of Americans. Driving through rush-
hour traffic may be adventuresome, but hardly a
match for a tall ship seeking safe port on a stormy
night.
The rebirth of the Key West Lighthouse, which
has been operated as a museum for the last 16-years
since it was declared obsolete, dovetails conveniently
with the 1989 Bicentennial celebration of the
American Lighthouse Service.

Time to enjoy the 'River of Grass'


by Henry J. Pratt
The best time is soon'approaching to enjoy a
canoe or boat trip through the "river of grass," that so
many nature lovers everywhere call Everglades
National Park. If you've taken such a trip before,
maybe now's the time to do it up big once again.
Nearly uniform warm, sunny weather makes
Everglades the unique park ecosystem, established
during President Harry Truman's heyday in 1947, vir-
tually a year-round visitor attraction. But there are
two distinct seasons in the Glades.
South Floridians know summer is wet and hot;
winter is cooler and drier. Heavy rains typically fall
during intense storms from late May through
October. Warm, humid conditions bring abundant
insects, including the voracious mosquito, which are
important to intricate food webs. That's what the
ecologists say, but they should face it, the bugs bite
us dudes bad, too.
During the Park's "winter" season, November 1
through April 30 or thereabouts, rainfall is minimal
and the mosquitoes not quite so hungry. Water is
scarcer during that time, making many birds and ani-
mals congregate in ponds and bays where water is
more plentiful. Most tourists see the Park from mid-
December until Easter.
Jdst one hour south of Miami, you can start
seeing one of the rarest places on earth. A place
where more than 300 species of birds swoop and sing
and soar in near-total natural freedom. Some of the
birds are found nowhere else on earth.
In fact, Everglades is best known for its sheer
abundance and variety of its birdlife. At Flamingo,
you may be able to watch roseate'spoonbills, large
pink birds some of us mistake for flamingos. Reddish
egrets and rare great white herons live and breed in
Florida Bay. Some 50 pairs of Southern Bald Eagle
nest along the coast. Occasionally, a few of the
endangered birds can be seen from the breezeway of
the Flamingo visitor center.
Other rare and endangered species found in the park
include the Florida panther, manatee, Everglades
mink, greensea turtle, loggerhead turtle, Florida sand-
hill crane, snail kite, short-tailed hawk, peregrine
falcon, Cape Sable sparrow, and the crocodile.


The alligator is the best-known Everglades citizen.
Unfortunately, its hide has been greatly prized for
high-fashion shoes and handbags. The alligator once
waged a losing battle against poachers and habitat
loss, but it has now staged a pretty-remarkable come-
back, aided by nationwide protection.
In fact, the alligator has now earned the title,
"Keeper of the Everglades." The helpful animal cleans
out the large holes dissolved in the Everglades' lime-
stone bed, which serve as oases during the drier winter
season.
Many inland and coastal waterways lead to remote
areas of the park. Several marked canoe trails near
Flamingo, rivers near Everglades City, Whitewater
Bay, and other areas also offer good boating opportu-
nities. It's no wonder Everglades is called a "Boater's
Paradise."
Boaters can explore the shallow waters of Florida
Bay, too. However, most bay islands are closed to
boat landings--to protect nesting birds. As well, a
small portion of the bay has been closed to guard the
endangered American crocodile.
National Park Service Rangers, in their famous,
broad-brimmed Stetsons, caution boaters to always be
on the lookout for manatees and should slow their
boats when entering known manatee areas. The rare,
shy manatee weighs close to a ton, and measures
more than 15 feet in length. Also called a sea cow,
the fascinating animal is entirely herbivorous, feeding
on aquatic plants. Motorboat propellers kill many
manatees yearly.
After years of protection, many animals, like the
Park's alligators, lose their natural fear of people.
You can often view them at close range, but we
should remember they're still wild.
We are asked to not disturb the wildlife, and not to
feed them. Even friendly looking animals like the
park's raccoons, can be dangerous. For your safety
and that of your family while visiting the.Everglades,
watch out for poisonous snakes, including coral
snakes, water moccasin, and diamondback and pygmy
rattlers.
For Park explorers without their own watercraft,
the Flamingo marina rents small powered skiffs,
houseboats, patio boats, and canoes. The marina can
accommodate boats up to 18 meters (60 feet) long


with boat trailer parking and free launch access.
Slip fees are based on boat length. Canoes can also
be rented from an Everglades City concessioner.
Navigational charts can be purchased at the Flamingo
marina, the main visitor center, and in Homestead,
Miami, and Everglades City, which has free boat
access to the Park.
Boat tours at Flamingo explore the mangrove wil-
derness and Florida Bay. The Flamingo Lodge marina
and outpost resort has several tours to tickle your
fancy-- Sunset Cruises, Backcountry Cruises, Florida
Bay Cruises, and Wilderness Tram Tours. They're all
guided tours and offered during the Park's winter
season.

Cruising


The NPS at Flamingo provides an information
desk, museum exhibits, Ranger- conducted programs
throughout the day, and amphitheater presentations
during the visitor season in the evenings. Flamingo
Lodge offers a full-service marina with a restaurant,
camper's stores, fuel for cars and boats, and all kinds
of fishing tackle and equipment.
In many Park rivers, creeks, ponds, lakes, and
bays, bragging-size fish thrive -- like snapper, bass,
grouper, redfish, and sea trout -- to name a few. Inland
and coastal waterways of the Everglades are popular
fishing grounds both for the novice, as well as the
experienced angler.
Then too, there's largemouth bass fishing in fresh-
water ponds.Freshwater fishing requires a Florida state
license; saltwater fishing does not. State fishing reg-
ulations apply in most cases, but special added
Federal regulations must be followed within the Park
boundary.
Special bag limits, in some instances, have.been
established. The taking of spiny lobsters, or crawfish,
is prohibited. Spearguns aren't allowed. Some fresh-
water and saltwater areas are closed to fishing. For a
Park folder, a list of areas, closed to anglers, and a
copy of the fishing regulations, please ask at visitor
centers or ranger stations,
STh&NPS's Everglades park folder cautions that for
safe boating, National Ocean Survey charts are indis-
pensable. Charts 11430, 11432, and 11433 are for
sale at the main visitor center, Flamingo, and in the
Everglades City area. All keys'and beaches in and
along Florida Bay are closed to landings, unless other-
wise designated. Where backcountry camping is
allowed, a camping permit is required.
A well-marked water route runs from Flamingo to
Everglades City. Sequentially- numbered markers
guide :you over its 99 miles (160 kiloineters). The
NPS Everglades folder explains that boats over 18
feet (6 meters), or with high cabins and wind- shields,
shouldn't attempt the route because of narrow chan-
nels and overhanging foliage in some places.
The Wilderness Waterway route, Park officials say,
requires a minimum of six hours with outboard motor

or seven days by canoe. The NPS doesn't recommend
one-day trips. Campsites are available along the
route, but backcountry camping permits are required.
Get out of your boat, canoe, RV or car, and walk,
and that will enlarge and enliven your trip to the
-Everglades this winter season. The major Park road
begins at the main visitor center and ends 38 miles
later at Flamingo. Several trails, many accessible for
the handicapped, take off from this road and several
more hikes begin at Flamingo. ,
The one-half mile Anhinga trail offers one of the
best opportunities to see Everglades' wildlife close
up. Alligators, turtles, fish, marsh rabbits, and many,
birds--including anhingas, frequently inhabit the area.
The Gumbo Limbo trail, also about a half mile,
winds through a hardwood hammock, a jungle-like
grove of tropical trees and plants. Statuesque royal
palms, gumbo limbo trees, wild coffee, and lush
aerial gardens of ferns and orchids grow in this dense,
moist forest. ,,.. ,


At Long Pine Key, a network of about seven miles
of interconnecting trails runs through the diverse
pinelands. Roughly 200 plant types, including 30
found nowhere else on Earth, grow under the slash-
pine canopy.
The, one-fourth mile Pa-hay-okee Overlook, trail;
leads to an observation tower offering a view of the-
vast "river of grass"-the true glades Floridians know,
that gave the Park its name. Other popular trails
include the Mahogany Hammock, the West Lake,
Christian Point, Snake Bight, Rowdy Bend, and
Coastal Prairie trails.

Water in the river of grass appears to be every-
where, butman has drastically blocked its free flow
through South Florida. Conflicting human demands
compete for this precious water, leaving the ever-
unique Everglades struggling to survive. While you
still can, go see the magnificent river of grass in all
its glory this winter season.

20 Waterfont News November 188 Commerce


by Captain Al Plant
There have been many articles written about the
environmental problems associated with TBTbottom
paints used on many vessels in tropical and northern
waters. Very few words, however, have addressed the
companies producing them and the effect on the con-
sumer having TBT paints removed from the market
place; Some companies even removed them before the
Federal ban on their use. Number of states banned
their use soon after it was discovered that TBT had a
detrimental effect on marine life. This has left the
boater with only a few.older and less effective formu-
las to use for inhibiting marine growth from bottoms
props, shafts, rudders and skegs.
Even the Navy whose ships were exempted under
the federal ban has come under increasing public pres-
sure to stop using TBT bottom coatings. When I was
in Hawaii last fall, environmentalists were going after
politicians to get the Navy to stop using TBT paints
on ships stationed permanently in Honolulu Harbor
where the fragile marine life was being destroyed from
high concentrations of TBT paints used. Areas of
Chesapeake Bay showed similar signs of damage to
oyster beds where many commercial fishing boats as
well as pleasure craft were docked.
One national paint company is pioneering a study
of a way to coat your boat bottom against fouling
marine growth yet not to effect the valuable and
necessary marine life. Mike Miller the South Florida
representative approached me in a marine store one
day late last spring and asked if we would be able to
help. Chuck Fitzgerald, the store owner, agreed that
this was a worthwhile effort not only from the envi-
ronmental standpoint but to come up with an effec-
tive bottom coating system that would benefit the
boat owner who would be ultimately paying for it.
It was decided to use my 1969 Chris-Craft Aqua
Home to test the fiberglass version of this yet-to-be-
named bottom paint. She was due for a bottom job
having had only two coats of copper bronze antifoul-
ing applied in August of 1985. She is berthed at a
Las Olas Island slip in Ft. Lauderdale where the year-
round marine growth is high.
The final lab tests had been completed by the end
of July and we were set to go. We contacted local
marina owner, Bob Wickman, and he agreed to partic-
ipate in the project and had some observations to pass
on about how bottom paints in general perform in
this high growth region where he has been selling
yachts for eight years. Wickman is in a good position
to analyze feedback he gets from listening to boaters'
bottom stories being swapped in the boatyard's

iters, especially power boaters, tend to forget where
ir boat was last hauled and painted. Quite oftei
y will bring out a heavily fouled yacht and the
ner will say he did it only a year ago. A check o-
records usually indicates longer, like 18 months
better. Over estimation of how long your bottom
nt will last is common, say the pain
manufacturers.
Another thing to consider is what Bob Wickman
several divers who clean bottoms call the "hot'
wth months. If you do your bottom job in late
imer, little growth will occur until the following
imer and may be o.k. until the fall. However, do a
t in April or May in our tropic waters many times
growth will get a good hold by the hot summer.

eral occasions when they have left a demonstration
ft in the water off the Intracoastal Waterway in

eks fouling was substantial. South Florida paint
erts recommend that whether a marina does your
k or you do it yourself, use an ablative antifoul-
paint, one that bleeds a little when the boal
res through the water or the current travels past
boat at dock. Bob Wickman says, "It tastes bad to
nacles, they spit it out and go away for 9 to 12
iths." A copolymer ablative like the one we tested
uld not be scrubbed.
We hauled the boat, power washed, scraped and
led the bottom down to the gelcoat in most

vent to wipe the hull. The bottom paint was

essary. Make sure the roller is compatible with the

lued from the core on the first stroke. A fuzzy
el type worked fine for the rest of the job. For
coats on the hull, approximately 46' x 14' it took
5 gallons (7 L) of paint.

Florida coral reef guide published


by Jack McClintock
"The Florida reef," says Dr. Gilbert Voss, profes-
sor of marine biology at the University of Miami's
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science, "has entranced humans from the first visi-
tor, whether encased in Spanish (chain). mail (armor),
wetsuit, or bikini."
Lying off the Florida Keys are the only true coral
reefs in continental U.S. waters. Hundreds of thou-
sands visit each year, to scuba dive or snorkel peacea-
bly among the swaying sea fans and jutting coral
heads and visit the myriad hordes of particolored
fishes that flash in the clear water.
"So many come that the reefs are in danger of
being destroyed by the sheer numbers of visitors,"
Voss says.
The danger can be minimized by knowledge, which

is why Voss has written The Coral Reefs of Florida
published in June by Pineapple Press, a user's guide
to the reefs. This indispensable reef-seeker's handbook
is at once an introduction, an appreciation and a
warning.
Reefs are made of the skeletons of billions of tiny
soft-bodied animals, coral polyps. Off the Florida
Keys there are more than 100 of them, and Voss
offers some of their evocative names: Alligator, Hen
and Chickens, the Sambos, Sombrero, Molasses,
Carysfort. These reefs, the shallow sea and the Florida
Keys form a unique system, extremely delicate and
vulnerable, and unlike any other in the world.
"To protect the land, the shallow seas, and the
coral reefs, one must understand them," Voss says.
His book explains where and when best to see
the reef, describes its geology and natural history in
fascinating and readable detail, introduces its various
living communities, discusses the reef and Florida
Keys in history, and in depressing yet hopeful terms
describes the effects of a century of intense human
activity on and around the Florida reefs. These beauti-
ful communities are in great danger, he shows
convincingly.
Living here are, hosts of gaudy fish, spotted,
striped and barred--at least 150 species of them--some
feeding at night, some in day, a few, such as the par-
rotfish, nibbling algae directly from the living coral.
The so-called "silent world" is anything but
that: The reef swarms with shrimps and crabs that
click, rasp, crackle and snap. Lobsters lurk, antennae
protruding, under coral slabs. Black-spined sea urchins

lie on the bottom. Conch--from which natives of the
Keys take their nickname--lurch along in the nearby
turtle grass in the shallows.
The reef ecosystem, Voss points out, begins
on shore with the tropical hardwood hammocks that
originally covered much of the upper Keys. These
have been mostly destroyed by development, and the
destruction continues:
"A unique habitat is slowly disappearing under
the developer's ruthless bulldozers and, once
destroyed, may take hundreds of years, if ever, to
return," Voss warns, adding that while small portions
are being preserved by law, they may not be large
enough to support much life within them.
When Henry Flagler's railroad came in 1912, the
era of development began, and so did trouble for the
reef. Since then they have endured pollution, runoff
from fertilizer and pesticides, dredging and filling,
destruction of the protective and nurturing mangroves,
massive sedimentation, the scraping anchors of thou-
sands of pleasure boats, the heavy metals of engine
exhausts, oil spills both deliberate and accidental,
massive dumping of raw sewage and all the other
effects of greed, ignorance and overpopulation. Even
the touch of a human hand can kill hundreds of coral
polyps.
The John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, the
only underwater state park in the country had 600,000
visitors in 1986. The damage they and their boats
cause is enormous. Voss says, "There are too many
people, and not enough reefs to support them.
"Our coral reefs," Voss concludes, "are slowly
being destroyed, not by nature and natural enemies
but by man and his destructive forces."
Voss' final chapter proposes sensible, clear-headed
solutions, ranging from education through a morator-
ium on new marinas to a level of responsible envi-
ronmental management that South Florida govern-
ment, in its quest for growth, has seldom been
willing to exercise.
"The cures for these destructive conditions are.self-
evident but distasteful," he concedes. "But the situa-
tion has gone too far to avoid direct action."
Such radical proposals as closing the reef parks to
the public clearly communicate the depth of this sci-
entist's concern.
"The need for environmental management is
clear," Voss says, "for without it, the marine side of
the ecosystem fails and along with it, the attraction of
the Keys."

Popular sea life display gets fac


The best free show in town is now even better!
Port Everglades' Sea Life Display Area, a boardwalk
park offering a fascinating look at an incredible
variety of marine life, has recently undergone several
improvements thanks to a joint effort between the
Port Authority and Florida Power & Light.
The gravel parking lot has been doubled in size
and paved to accommodate the park's growing popu-
larity. Wheelchair ramps now provide easier access
onto the boardwalk, and weathered fish identification
signs have been replaced with new ones.
Broward County Parks & Recreation has donated
several additional picnic tables, and Port staff has
added an attractive gazebo and walkways leading to the
boardwalk for visitor comfort and convenience.
New landscaping is being planted by students of
the Florida Ocean Sciences Institute, with shade trees,
shrubbery and flowering plants being provided by the
Broward County Roadway Department's Plant and


Nursery Division.
Over 130 species of marine life have been identi-
fied at the Sea Life Display Area, located at the intake
channel for the Florida Power & Light plant. Marine
life tends to congregate at the intake pipes where fish-
ing is prohibited and visitors provide a constant
source of free meals. Colorful parrot fish, graceful
angelfish, sea turtles, and all sizes of the endangered
Florida manatee are just a few species that delight vis-
itors of all ages.
The Sea Life Display Area is free, and open seven
days a week with best viewing during calm weather.
Manatees are considered seasonal visitors as they are
most plentiful during the cooler months, but there are
several that consider Port Everglades their year round
home and frequently visit the Sea Life Display Area.
(Hint: manatees are vegetarians and love cabbage
or lettuce, and handfuls of fish food can be purchased
on the boardwalk for 25 cents.)


Getting there is easy take State Rd. 84 east into
the Port and bear right at the water. The boardwalk
park is directly across from the cement silos, on the
west side of the road.

24 Watefont News November 1988 Fishing,


I
by Joseph S. Russotto


In. Brooklyn, New York, many years ago, my friend,
Shorty once said:
"Hey! Tomorrow's Saturday. Let's go fishing!"
"I've never fished before," I complained.
"So what? I'll teach you!"
Early the next morning, Shorty brought fishing gear
for two and some crushed grasshoppers for bait, but
after four hours in our rented rowboat, we didn't get a
nibble. So, we rowed to a nearby beach to swim.
All we caught that day was two painful sunbums.
In my later teens, I made two more fishing attempts
with equally dismal results.
They say there are two kinds of fishermen those who
fish for sport and those who catch something.
I was neither.
In my late twenties I got married and my father-in-law,
Gaetana, a lovable gent and expert fisherman said:
'Tomorrow morning I'll teach you how to fish. Be ready
at six!"
By bus, subway and trolley car, we finally reached
Sheephead Bay, a famous Brooklyn fishing spot for anglers
big and small.
Gaetano brought everything a fisherman would need,

Pelican Pub has an advantage
over most other waterfront res-
taurants, large slips for large
boats and a capacity to have
over a dozen of these decent
sized vessels tied up at. any one
time. Whether you cruise up to
the Hillsboro Inlet on the outside
or up the intracoastal, Pelican
Pub is the destination of choice
for larger boats. Dine in Pelican

Fishing is a reel sport


including four salami sandwiches, a thermos bottle with
some of his homemade wine and limited patience.
When we stopped rowing and dropped anchor, he
attached a live worm to my hook and said:
"Go get 'em, Tarzan!" (Note: He didn't speak any
English, but that's what he meant!).
When I finally felt a tug on my line, I began reeling in
frenziedly but all I brought up was an empty hook.
Gaetano, meanwhile, had caught a two-pound fish he
called a mazurka.
"A mazurka's not a fish," I laughed. "That's an Italian
dance!"
Gaetano continued puffing on his crooked cigar and
snorted:".Keep quiet! You're scaring away the fish!"
SAfter baiting my line three times, he snapped: "This
time bait ityourself? That's how you leaml"
I tried twice but eh slippery worms squirmed out of my
fingers, so I told Gaetano I was through for the day and
he seemed relieved.
Although my father-in-law caught a dozen fish that day,
he never took me along while we lived in Brooklyn.
About twenty years later, now living in Pompano Beach,
Florida, with my in-laws next door, the old man suddenly
shocked me: "Son, I don't drive, but you do. So, we'll go
fishing tomorrow morning atsix. Be ready!"
We went to Anglin's Pier and somehow he elicited from
the various anglers what bait was bringing in the fish.
Again he prepared my lines and twice I was positive I
had made a "hit.
Both times,.however, I had hooked on to some other
anglers' lines and the old man had to untangle each mess,
while we received some dirty looks and some obscene

remarks.
Nevertheless, the old man, as usual, caught a nice string
of fish but my fishing had ended in zilch again.
At this point I was convinced that fishing is a sport
confined to drowning worms.
A year later, one of my friends told me I would have
better luck by going deep sea fishing and I stupidly agreed
to go with him.
It was a gusty day and ten minutes out, I started
getting nauseaous, even though I had taken the prescribed
seasickness pills.
As it got worse, I tried getting my mind off my
troubles by picturing the topless waitress at Dinty's Bar
and Grill but it didn't work!
Then I saw one of the anglers retching and that did it!
I heaved over the rail and then was told to lie down to
the deck until I felt better or died.
I was still green around the gills when I got home.
But time marches on and once again my father-in-law,
Gaetano, tried to make me a fisherman.
We drove to a place reputedly teaming with big bass
and for no reason at all I asked him why fish were often
called brain food.
"That's because they travel in schools, you dope!" Then
he laughed at hs ownjoke. '
Anyway, even he didn't catch fish that day but the
worst was yet to come! .. I
We were marching through some thick grass and weedsr-
to reach the car and when we finally emerged from the
jungle growth, the old man started to curse and
gesticulate wildly.
Our walking shorts, sox and canvas shoes were literally
covered with hundreds of sharply pointed burrs and it took
us an hour to painfully pick them off.
Then the old mansaid: "Bah! Back in Brooklyn we caught

Fishing Waterfront News November 1988 25


Fishing reel sport -CON'T
fish! Here we catch burrs!"
The years passed on and so, sadly, did the old man!
One morning, at Loxahatchee Park, my cousin, a
longshoreman, had left me temporarily to watch his baited
line while he went to the car to get something.
Suddenly, about thirty yards away, I spotted what
looked like a periscope, but it actually was a snake!
To scare it away, I hurled a stone at it and
unintentionally scored a direct hit. The infuriated snake
now saw me standing there alone and promptly began
swimming towards me, using a magnificent breaststroke.
It was about ten yards from shore when I saw my cousin
running towards me, with part of a discarded two-by-four
beam.
While I ran for cover, my cousin poised himself at the
water's edge and when the snake emerged he vigorously
whacked it with the beam, breaking the reptile's back.
Then we hurriedly picked up our gear and left.
This is a true story and not just one of those piscatorial
prevarications generally attributed to anglers.
One day, we visited a couple living in Fort Pierce and
the husband, Chuck, a top notch fisherman, decided to
'break me in" as a fisherman.
"Anybody can fish," he said conviningly. "Even your"
"OK," I replied. "Lots of luck!"
We fished off the rocks and naturally, Chuck did all the
preparatory work. All I had to do was cast out the line and
"reel them in". (He knew I was still trying to catch that
first fish.);
About an hour later, after he had baited my line
repeatedly, it suddenly happened!
Thete was definitely something big tugging at my line
so strongly that I envisioned at least a ten pound fish. Then
I got so excited that Chuck had to help me and when the
"fish" was finally visible, he started laughing.
I had hooked a medium sized duck!
Chuck deftly removed the hook from the duck's throat
and released the bewildered but happy bird back into the
water.
After this comical episode, Chuck reluctantly admitted:
"I guess you just weren't cut out to be a fisherman. You
Better stick to just writing about the sport!"
S That was the last time I tried my "skill" against
Sddhihens of the sea, including snakes and ducks.
SAfter all, it was Confucius who once said: "Fishing is a
Sport played with a long pole, a worm at one end arid a
Sfool at the other"- :
S:Right?Wrong! I'm waiting for someone to invite me oce

More than 90 anglers "got hooked" on Capital
Bank's Catch A Cure Fishing Tournament which
benefited the Diabetes Research Institute at the
University of Miami School of Medicine. Held at the
Miami Beach Marina September 23-25, the beautiful
weather was the perfect setting for some exciting
competition, and when the weekend ended, over
$20,000 was raised for diabetes research.
Entrants vied for over $6,000 in prize money.
Reeling in the Overall Winner's 1st place' was Bill
Vogler of Miami, who scored a total of 317 points
during the two-day event.
Other winners in the overall category were: 2nd
place, John Georgiades; 3rd place, Jim Mayhew; 4th
place, Joey Posnick; and tied for 5th place were Tim
Alexander and Brian Boylan Sr. Cash prizes ranging
from $250 to $1,500 were awarded to these top fin-
ishers in the overall category.
In the challenge fish divisions, the 1st place prize
for heaviest dolphin was awarded to Al Taddia, for his
26.8 pound catch; 2nd place went to Tim Alexander,
and Brian Boyle, Sr. finished third. Top finisher in

Eligible species for the tournament included:
amberjack, bonito, cobia, dolphin, grouper, permit,
pompanp, seatrout, snapper, wahoo, yellowtail and
tuna.
Winners of the tournament were based on the total
points accumulated over the two days. Twenty-five
points were given for each fish caught at or above the
minimum weight for each eligible species, with
bonus points added for each additional pound over the
minimum.
The tournament kicked off at Tugboat Annie's
Friday night, with an Anglers' meeting hosted by
Captain "Bouncer" Smith, who discussed the rules
and regulations of the tournament and also gave some
expert advice and fishing tips. Guests received goody
bags upon registering and were treated to refreshments
while door prizes were drawn.
Saturday and Sunday, anglers headed out to sea to
test their luck and skill. Catches were displayed and
weighed each day, and changes in the standings were
keenly observed by those in contention as numerous
fish stories were exchanged.
By 4 p.m. on Sunday the final scores were tallied
and winners prepared for the evening's banquet. Held
under the pavilion at the Miami Beach Marina, the
buffet dinner, trophy presentations, and door prizes
were a perfect ending to a terrific weekend.

Grueling Rowing Marathon


by Craig Lustgarten
South Floridians will soon have a golden opportu-
nity to view an international first class rowing com-
petition, the 1989 World Rowing Marathon, which
will take place January 9-15.
This particular rowing event will bring together
close to 30 rowing teams from all over the world that
will be competing in a 7-day, 72-mile regatta. The
event will take place along Florida's Intracoastal
Waterway, beginning from Old Port Cove in North
Palm Beach and winding up at Bayside in downtown
Miami at the end of the last day of competition.
There is $150,000 in prize money at stake for the
winners of this rowing spectacular. Following each
day's competition, the finishing times for each crew
will be tallied and the team with the lowest cumula-
tive time at the end of the seven days of racing will
be declared the winner.
The seven days of racing will occur over eight dif-
ferent courses. On the first day, there will be two
races one from the village of North Palm Beach to
the Blue Heron bridge and the other from Peanut
Island to the City of Lake Worth. On day two, the
race will start in Lake Worth and finish in Delray
Beach. On day three, the racers will row from Delray
Beach to Lake Boca in Boca Raton. On day four, the
course covered will go from Lake Boca to Southeast
17th Street causeway in Fort Lauderdale. The fifth day
of racing will start at John U. Lloyd Park in Dania
and finish at the Sunny Isle Causeway in North
Miami Beach.
On day six there will be a 1000 meter sprint along
Collins Avenue finishing at the Fountainbleu Hotel.

On the final day of racing, the competition will occur
from Broad Causeway to Bayside.
Herbert Schaumburg, chairman of the Florida
Rowing Marathon, stated, "In participating in this
event, rowers will find out about their limits in terms
of stamina, since this will be the toughest rowing
competition ever held on earth. A normal race course
is about 1.2 miles this course will cover 12-13
miles most days, over ten times what you would nor-
mally cover for one race.'
The event has become a partnership with local
government, involving Dade, Broward, and Palm
Beach Counties and 39 municipalities. The race will
be covered by a multitude of media, including ESPN
and stations in the European Broadcasting Union. At
least 18 television crews will cover the event, includ-
ing two on blimps.
It is expected that over 12,000 visitors from all
over the country will descend on South Florida for
this event, in addition to the local population which
will have several opportunities to catch the racing
along various points, including the start and finish of
each day's competition.
The rowing marathon is considered to be an
important vehicle for, improving South Florida's
image throughout the world and to showcase all the:
amenities the area has to offer, especially its water-
ways and beaches.
Herbert Schaumburg added, "I am deeply con-
vinced that this is one of the best ways to promote
tourism to South Florida. The rowing marathon is an
outdoor event that will catch the world's eye and
showcase tourism related facilities in Florida like no
indoor event can."
