Norwegian vessel helps teenagers sail on an even keel
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A Norwegian boat that once served as a medical ship in
the North Sea is back in the rescue business. Only this time
around, the vessel is being used to help turn around troubled
youth and set them on a different path.
The 75-foot steel-hulled boat, called the Halten, was
donated to the Associated Marine Institutes in December
during a ceremony held outside the Art Institute of Fort
A canal behind the institute will.serve as the ship's
home. When it's not docked there, AMI will use it for marine
and wilderess-based ju enile rehabilitation programs.
The boat's firtl trip.,was in mn January, when nine stu-
dents from Florida Ocean Sciences Institute in Fort
Lauderdale and the Dade Marine Institute went to Fort
Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. : .
Both groups are two of 54 programs that are affiliated
with AMI around the country and the Cayman lisands, said
Magie Baxter, communications director with AMIi which is
based in Tampa.
AMI's affiliated programs seek to help troubled kids
who are referred by the department of juvenile justice in
each state. The teenagers, most between the ages of 14 and
17, spend four months to a Near taking regular academic
courses while undergoing counseling and basic life skills

AMI is a non-profit group that was founded 33 years
ago in Fort Lauderdale.-The organization is always seeking
donations of \essels of any size, boat parts and marine
equipment, she said.
The donated boats serve as a floating classroom and are
, used as charter vessels. The monies from the chartering ser-
vice help Support the programs. Baiter said.
The Halien was given to AMI by W\illiam vonGal, who
lives in Alabama and imports aircraft. Von Gal has been a
long-time friend of the organization.
The Norwegian rescue vessel was built in 1966. It's
steel hull and aluminum super structure is Ice Class Rated,
meaning the boat is built to withstand the worst conditions

Resident recalls 'country' life along the New River's North Fork
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Wilbur Porter Jr. was only a kid when his father
bought land along the North Fork of the New River in Fort
Lauderdale and built the first house in what is today called
"Boy it was a whole lot different than what's happen-
ing today," said Porter as he sat in a chair outside his
house which sits near the river's edge and traffic whizzing
along Martin Luther King Boulevard.
"This was all wilderness, with thick woods, deer and
all sorts of wildlife. I could go down to the river, throw out
a line and catch loads of fish, even snapper."
The Porters were pioneers in the area, and while the
neighborhood today is vastly different from a half century
ago, the family still lives near its original homestead.
"I can't imagine us living anywhere else," Porter said.
"This has been home most of my life, and I remember
walking to school, fishing and boating in the river and see-
ing all the changes that have taken place."
The Porters moved to Fort Lauderdale from Georgia
nearly 66 years ago. Porter's father worked on a Davie
dairy farm for 25 years, herding and milking cows.
Around 1951, the senior Porter had a chance to buy a lot
in what was then considered the "country," land filled with
wildlife along the meandering New River as it moved
northward from Broward to Sunrise boulevards.
There were no roads in the area then, with only a dirt
pathway leading to the lot that Porter bought and used to
build a small wooden home.
He bought the $250 property with only $5 down, at
first making, payments of $5 a month until scraping
together enough to buy it outright. Landlocked properties
cost only $150.
"There were farms all around here and sugar cane
fields," said Porter, who helped create the first quarter
horse tracks in the state.

He attended Dillard Elementary, which was across the
river and he recalls creating a wooden bridge with ropes
and crates in order to cut down the distance he and his
friends had to walk to school.
"One day we were coming home and the rope had given
way and my bridge was all washed up down river," he said.
Porter's father began buying other lots in the area so
he could pass on one to each of his four children. Today,
the younger Porter lives across the street from the original
family home, which burned down a number of years ago.
His father died at age 91.
After a short hitch in the U.S. Navy in the 1950s, Porter
Jr. returned to a neighborhood that had experienced rapid
changes. Sunrise Boulevard had been built and the North
Fork of New River's route was diverted to run alongside the
south side of Sunrise, instead of continuing north.

Wilbur Porter Jr. still enjoys
daily visits to the New River
near his home. He's lived along
the North Fork for more than
50 years and has seen the
Washington Park area change.
Other roads were built, along with new houses and
"It looks so much different today," said Porter, who
worked with his father in a refuse business.and then began
a landscaping service before finally joining the Broward
Sheriff's Office as a process server in 1975. After 23
years, he retired in 1998. He is married, the father of two
and grandfather of four.
"I miss not being able to hunt deer, rabbits and coon
like we used to and the river isn't as clean as it once was,"
Porter said. "The people have come and gone, but there's
a new effort to create a sense of community again, and I
hope it works."
Porter has no plans to move. He laughs about taking a
boat put to fish when high tide impedes clearing the 27th
Ave. bridge. Porter ties up his boat and retrieves it the next
day at low tide.
"Funny things like that make living around here so
much fun," he added., : : ,. : :

Airport noise fails to stop Dania Beach neighborhood from taking off
This is one in a series of special features looking at
neighborhoods that line Broward County waterways.
This month's feature takes a look at the quiet Metaleuca
Gardens in Dania Beach.
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
DANIA BEACH It's understandable why resi-
dents of the friendly and quiet Metaleuca Gardens would
prefer to keep the whereabouts of their waterfront neigh-
"We feel very safe and isolated here and the fewer peo-
ple who know about us, the better off we may be," said
Trudy McAdams, who found her house with husband, John,
back in 1986 and wouldn't dream of living anywhere else.
The area, consisting of small private homes on isles, is
bordered by the Dania Cut-Off Canal to the south, U.S. 1 on
the east, 1-95 to the west and New Griffin Road and the Fort
Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport to the north.
"It's the ideal location in many respects, but the nega-
tive can be the airport noise and smell of fuel if the wind
blows the wrong way," said John McAdams, a retired small
A giant sound wall that borders homes off New Griffin
Road also hides them from public view and makes the gar-
dens area a secluded secret of middle income families in
what many call the last affordable waterfront property so
close to the ocean.
When Art Mazanke, 75, first bought two lots back in
1977, his was only the third house to go up on his street.
Now his empty lot next door is the only undeveloped parcel
to be found.
"I paid only $13,000 for two lots and now could get
more than $100,000 for one of them," said the retired former
owner of a heavy construction business.
But all Mazanke cares about is taking his 26-foot Dusky
powerboat out to the ocean as much as possible. He loves to
fish and enjoys the 45-minute journey that easily takes him
from the Dania Cut-Off Canal to the ocean.
"When I think other boaters have to put up with all the
traffic along the New River and the canals in Fort
Lauderdale, I'm just as happy I am living right here," he said
"We're spoiled with having it so easy."
Melaleua Gardens-was developed by the Florian family,
whose 90-plus patriarch still owns a home in the area. The
isles have been divided into three sections: Nautilus,
Argonaut and Florian.
Mazanke, who lives on Nautilus, said many retirees
who originally settled in the area in the 1970s have passed
on, and the homes have gone to young families with chil-
"I feel very safe here and it's a nice bunch of people and
very quiet," said Mazanke, a Michigan native who's always
lived on the water and picked his current home for its loca-
tion and easy ocean access.
The story was the same for Trudy and John McAdams,
who are from Massachusetts and had been visiting Fort
Lauderdale for many winters when they decided to go house
shopping in 1986.
'We would have never even know this area existed if it
hadn't been for us accidentally meeting a real estate agent at
the store, and she told us about a great neighborhood she
used to live in," said Trudy McAdams, who says she often
jogs at night and feels completely safe in the neighborhood.

Neighborhood residents have chosen not to have any

"They've tried it at different times and it just doesn't
work," Mazanke said.
Ed Tysenn, who lives on Nautilus, said residents often
plan special events for the kids.
"At Christmas, we have Santa riding on a boat along the
canals and visiting all the children as he passes out gifts,
Tysenn said. "It's a great event and the children love it'.
Tysenn, who works at Allied Marine, said buying his
house 10 years ago was a fulfillment of a dream to live on the
water with his 22-foot boat. "This is the last affordable water-
front neighborhood of its kind and we hope it stays that way."

don't have a secret
By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Insurance is offered in many forms
and is advertised in many ways. If you
take advertising literally, you can buy
auto insurance from lizards with aristo-
cratic English accents and health insur-
ance from. hysterical white ducks. It is
also apparently true that you can insure
your boat by pretty much filling out a
form available in certain stores, and just
sending in your premium:
"That's great!" you might say to
yourself, "No hassles, no shopping, and
no brokers probably means cheaper
"After all," you might think, "except
for the cost of the premium and.the value
of the policy, all insurance policies and
insurance carriers are pretty much alike,
Well, that's the real question.
Many states, Florida included, do
have set language and required clauses
for certain types of auto, health, and
workers compensation policies sold in
those states. Maritime insurance, howev-
er, is a different matter.
As one prominent maritime attorney
appropriately put it: "It is better to think
about marine insurance in terms of a
'contract' rather than as a 'policy."'
In other words, your maritime insur-
ance coverage is based on what is agreed
to between parties rather than what might
be required under any statute.
Although there was once traditional
language used in most maritime policies
which was fully tested and understood by
the courts, many insurance companies
have "modernized" their language,
allegedly making it easier to read.
Some even read more like policies
for a car than for a vessel. The upshot is
that these policies have their own indi-
t agent ,
vidual language that hasn't been fully
tested over time by the courts, and can
often be subject to the unsympathetic
interpretation of an insurance company's
own claims managers until their clauses
are fully challenged and interpreted
through the legal process.
So, how do you handle this marine
insurance quagmire? Well, although I
don't enjoy sounding like an advertiser
for any particular group, it is my experi-
ence that one of the best ways to avoid
the less pleasant side of the insurance
industry particularly marine insurance
is to invest the time necessary to find
a good insurance agent.
A "good" insurance agent will be by
training (and generally by Florida
statute) the agent of the insurance pur-
chaser. Such an agent should be able to
sit down with you and compare different
policies including differences in cover-
age and exclusions, and how they might
effect you and your specific situation.
This should also include explana-
tions of the different types of risks that
you and your vessel might encounter and
how you can remain covered for those
And, sometimes, a really good
agent may be able to guide you to insur-.
ance companies that have a general his-
tory of being "claim friendly." You see,
it does appear to.be true that-certain
companies are more disposed by their
corporate culture to pay out a claim of
loss in a less hassling manner than some
Always remember, insurance compa-

Should you float
your own boat?
By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
Do you own a boat? Do you want to?
Have you looked into alternatives like frac-
tional ownership, club memberships,
rentals or the buddy system? Do you feel
like you must have your very own vessel or
does something a little less personal appeal
Let's face it: owing a vessel is an expen-
sive, frustrating, expensive, fantastic, expen-
sive, bewildering, expensive experience.
We've all heard, "the happiest two days in a
boat owner's life are the day he buys it and
the day he sells it."
But what about everything in between?
Personally, I don't agree. In fact, I think
"they" missed the boat, or perhaps "they"
never owned one. The best day in a boat
owner's life is every day that he spends on
the water. Buying and selling is merely a
transitional term that speaks to an upgrade or
downsize. So there.
There must be a reason why so many
people get freaky at the thought of plying
crystal blue waters from their own helm.
True ownership creates the perfect conduit
through which a genuine "salt" can silently
massage his deepest sense of pride. Why
else will a captain go down with his vessel
rather than be rescued and have to recount
her painful demise? And there must be a rea-
son why the names of more long-lost sweet-
hearts adorn the transorrs of vessels than
most captains will care to admit.
The boom line is that if you are pas-
sionate about your vessel and the sport of
boating, then you truly must own one.
You will. never be fully satisfied on a
"rent-a-yacht" nor will you feel the pride
rightly bestowed on every "cap'n" who
plows the high seas (or waterways as the case
may be) and brings her home safe again.
If your buddy has taken the plunge, and
you are relentlessly tagging along for the
ride, you're a mooch! Don't fool yourself
by thinking that you've beaten the system
because you have not. You are a captain
wanna-be and you ought to be ashamed!
You'd better be springing for fuel and
bait, and not trying to snake your way out
of the cleanup job when you get back to the
dock. People like that should play bingo.
On the other hand, if you are not pas-
sionate about the sport and you have to ask
yourself the ownership question to begin
with, then do yourself a favor and rent one
whenever you get the urge. To buy is to be
To financially justify your decision is
to spit into the wind. Passion must drive
your decision for boat ownership and any-
thing less will fail.
Maybe it would help to review some
estimates I have compiled that speak more
clearly to the financial ramifications of own-
ership when compared to the alternatives.
If we consider, for example, the pur-
chase and commitment one would assume
in acquiring a $50,000 vessel by calculat-
ing average costs over a three year period,
and then we compare our results to a mem-
bership rental arrangement, the numbers
speak loudly for themselves:
Total outings over three years
15 30 60 165
Average number of outings per year -
5 10 20 55
Average estimated cost per trip-owner-
ship (over 3 years.)
$4,492.44 $2,246.22 $1,123.11 $408.40
Average estimated cost per trip-mem-
bership (over 3 years.)
$500 $450 $425 $409
These estimates were determined in
part by making the following assump-

Research insurance agencies before signing on the dotted line
hopefully act as your advocate with the company you're
insured with, and help smooth the way for payment of the
loss, if payment is due. I have seen instances where
knowledgeable agents have assisted their clients on some
difficult claims, and it arguably allowed for settlement
without the need for time consuming and costly legal
This means, if an insurance company you are consid-
ering does not have any agents locally, or in some
instances even within the state you reside or do your boat-
ing, you just might be losing out on an extra tier of advo-
cacy that would otherwise be available to you if you ever
have to file a claim with that company.
Naturally, as a consumer, you will have to do some
tions: ninety percent financing for five years at 8.5 percent;
estimated costs of insurance, equipment, registration, stor-
age, maintenance and repairs, debt service and depreciation
for an average 25-foot vessel over a three year period.
Our model indicates quite incredibly that in order to
break even (with the leasing option) on overall costs of
ownership, one would have to run his owned vessel 165
times at least once per week, 52 weeks per year for three
Anything less would cause relative costs to go through
the roof, Keep inamind that most boat owners only use their
vessels 10 to 12 times per year. The costs of a member-
ship/rental scenario is basically consistent, decreasing
slightly over time, and with increased usage due to dilution
of annual costs.
Fractional ownership is a whole new realm that is slow-
ly edging its way into the boating environment. The concept
carries- with it a litany of snafus far too voluminous to

research and legwork to find an insurance agent who will

insurance lines. So, if a good agent refers you to someone

gest that you remember that first agent for your future
Now, I realize that my suggestions flies in the face of
the easy "fill out the form and mail in the check" style of
insurance-buying which is becoming popular among some
people. In fact, my suggestions could-make your search
for boat coverage a little more expensive and certainly
more time consuming.
However, I was taught to believe that the main reason
one,purchases insurance is to buy peace of mind.
So I believe buying insurance for a boat especially
explore here. It assumes that all of the partners (who typi-
cally do not know each other) are conscientious and that
they take care of very expensive property that does not com-
pletely belong to them.
The legal documents involved are sticky and thick,
and conflict resolution techniques geared at solving
scheduling problems and the allocation of unforeseen.
costs are paramount. Unless you get a warm and fuzzy
,feeling when you share your coolest stuff with perfect
strangers, this may be a concept that would be most effec-
tive if just taught to your kids.
Well, that's the technical reality. Boating is the greatest
and most gratifying spectacular pastime sport on earth.
Either love it or lease it, but don't float your own boat unless
it is truly a passion that you can't live without.
Rick Roughen is an independent financial consul-
tant in Fort Lauderdale's marine community.
a smaller boat since fighting a denial of a claim could end
up being too hectic and/or costly to pursue in such
instances should be a highly researched decision.
Therefore, know the insurance policy and the compa-
ny that produced it well before you sign on to them.
Brochures, even highly detailed ones are riot insurance
policies and should not be regarded that way.
Finally, know your agent well. Don't let your insur-
ance agent be a "secret agent."

Maritime museum proposal runs up against stiff competition
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
The effort to create a first-ever Fort Lauderdale mar-
itime museum is bumping up against some formidable com-
petition as the City of Fort Lauderdale prepares to decide
who might get a prime New River parcel for a major project.
When bids closed late last year, only two proposals were
presented to the city for the old post office site at 330 SW 2nd
St. The city-owned Riverwalk land is located near the
Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the New River.
One proposal was from the Fort Lauderdale Maritime
Museum, and the other from the Broward Center. The mar-
itime group wants to remodel the former post office to estab-
lish the city's first museum and resource center to honor
south Florida's rich marine heritage.
The Broward Center wants to demolish the postal build-
ing and replace it with a proposed $6.5 million, 300-seat
Himmershee Place at Riverwalk, a cultural center that might
help launch a resident dance company as well as be a small-
er venue for events. The proposal has the backing of the
Broward School Board, Florida Atlantic University and
numerous art groups, all citing how Riverwalk has become
a vital cultural center.
According to Cult Buffington, the city's purchasing
manager, an initial request for proposals was informal "to
see what kind of interest there might be in the site." He said
the City Commission has since decided to open the process
up to all possible developers, with a new bid deadline to be
sometime in late March.
Hampton Peterson,.an attorney and co-chair of the Fort
Lauderdale Maritime Museum Committee, said the move
wasn't unexpected, as the city has historically favored com-
mercial projects to broaden its tax base.
"I had the feeling this might happen from the very
beginning, but we wanted to present our proposal anyway,"
Peterson said. Peterson said his group's museum plan would
reflect the area's nautical history, though its non-profit status
wouldn't benefit the city's tax base.
There currently is no such nautical facility in Fort
Lauderdale, despite the city's "Venice of America" motto,
and tourism promotions as a yachting destination. The
only maritime museum in Florida is in Stuart, and the Mel
Fisher Museum in Key West, which focuses specifically on
The U.S. Post Office vacated the 1927-built structure,
considered architecturally and historically important, six
years ago. It was designed in the Beau-Arts style by noted
architect Francis Abreu.
Peterson said the museum committee will be required to
submit more detailed information in a future proposal, and
will also have to show a stronger funding base.
The non-profit group formed last spring and named
officers. Museum plans call for exhibits, oral histories, visit-
ing displays, models of important vessels, marine archaeo-
logical items and a research library.
Frank Herhold, executive director of the Marine
Industry Association of South Florida, said his organization
continues its support of the Maritime Museum as a "fitting"
way to recognize the heritage of the marine industry. The
MIASF represents 800 marine-related businesses, which
pump $8.8 billion into the local economy annually.
The committee is now exploring fund-raising efforts-to
pay for the estimated $100,000 remodeling of the old post
"Here we are a community that's built on water and with
the largest number of marine oriented businesses in the nation,
and there is no recognition of that history," Peterson said.

"The Coast Guard bought six of the devices and has ordered six more for use at its
station on Great Inagua in the Bahamas, where the Air Force found the mosquito
problem so bad that it decided the island was uninhabitable," said Lieut. Russ
Hellstern, a spokesman for the Coast Guard Stationt in Clearwater, Florida.
"Since they put in those mosquito machines, you can actually walk outside without
being attacked, Lieut. Hellstern said "It's amazing!"

'6 S FEBRUARY 2002
Sewage, storm water runoff continues
to muck up industrial Miami River
ever that good things are going to happen. And while it will
be expensive, he said a lot can be done in small bites.
One of his subcommittee's recommendations is to head
off junk already in the pipes and culverts before it reaches
the river. The worst of that flows through Wagner Creek,
which pours into the river beside the Northwest Fifth Street
bridge, about one-and-a-half nautical miles upriver from
"We can install certain devices to stop any solid waste
before it's discharged into Wagner Creek," Milian said.
"Those would cost $35,000 to $40,000 each."
The creek is the committee's focal point because it's
reportedly the river's worst supplier of pollution. At its
upper end, it emerges from beneath Northwest 20th Street in
a district of wholesale fruit and vegetable depots, auto body
shops and other industrial facilities that filled .the little
stream for so long that it just stayed that way.
Somewhere downstream, fecal coliform bacteria flows
in, contributing to Wagner's status as one of Florida's most
polluted waterways, Milian said. How it gets there isn't
known, but a logical suspect is some yet-undetected old link
between sanitary and storm sewers.
The lower one-third of a mile, below Northwest 11th
Street, runs through Miami's Spring Garden neighborhood.
That section, called the Seybold Canal on marine charts, is a
colorful mixed residential and commercial waterway so nar-
row that it's possible to talk with boaters on either side with-
out raising your voice as you putter past.
It's dredged deep enough for a 40 or 50-foot boat, too
big to get past a small bridge barely a tenth of a mile
upstream. It takes some throttling skill to turn around any-
where short of a basin at 11th Street.
A diver and mechanic comes up from under a lobster boat,
Prince of Tides, docked on the Seybold Canal stretch of
Wagner Creek, one of the worst-polluted waterways in
Numerous signs along the way warn about manatees,
but the water is so dark that not more than a swirl may be
The pollution of that little tributary is the closest thing
the Miami River has to a true relic of its dirtiest days. ...
How bad was it? When four people were murdered in
the '70s in an expensive rental apartment barely a block
from the river, an inappropriate stretch of time passed before
neighbors told the police about the growing odor.
Reporters asked tenants why they waited. At the time,
the answer sounded reasonable .
"For several days, we thought it was just the river":

"We think it's fantastic," Baxter said. "It's a great ves-
sel for the kids to use. I think the boat's previous life was
saving lives and it will continue to do that."
SJack McQuestion, executive director of Florida Ocean
Sciences Institute, said the vessel handles well. He spent
Jan. 14 to 19 on the Halten's maiden AMI voyage to Port
SWhile in the Dry Tortugas, the students went snorkel-
ing, scuba diving and fishing. The teens also learned how to
handle the boat and.navigation skills. For community ser-
vice, the kids de-weeded and swept up debris at the heli-
copter pad at Port Jefferson National Park, he said.
S"It's a very sturdy boat with twin diesel engines,"
McQuestion said. "It does have a round bottom, which
makes a it a bit more rock and roll if you have choppy sea
Being on the Halten gave students an opportunity to
experience maritime activities, he said.
S"I'm hoping we will be able to use the boat more in the
future. It depends on what plans AMI has for it," he said. "If
you consider the kids we have, these are youthful offenders,
many of whom are inner-city youngsters. A lot of these stu-
dents have never been on a boat."
The students who went to Port Jefferson were all
boys. "It exposed them to a whole new world,"
McQuestion said. "The memories and positive reinforce-
ment of what they did will stay with them. Anything at all
that affects their esteem and directs it in the right direc-
tion, affects their future."
"The memories and positive
reinforcement of what they did

During their stay at sea on the Halten, the crew got a full
range of reactions from the kids. "They were upset at first
when we were going south'" McQuestion said. "We had the
winds coming right at us. It caused for a bit of roughness."
But the kids reacted positively overall to the trip.
There were no major disciplinary problems, he said. The
favorite activity was scuba diving in the Florida Keys. The
thing that provoked the most questions was the radar,
Jim Brass, who sold the Halten to von Gal several years
ago as a pleasure boat, helped arranged the donation of the
ship to AMI.
Von Gal was looking to sell the vessel when Brass, who
is director of sales for Rybovich Spencer Yacht Sales in
West Palm Beach, suggested he donate it to the organization.
We had the boat on the marketplace, but this is a very
special boat," Brass said. 'There's only a small number of
people who understand this type of vessel."
Brass estimates the boat is worth $1.5 million. The
donation is tax deductible, he said
The Halten was donated in good running condition and
von Gal provided cash so that the boat could have proper
servicing, Brass said.
"It needed housekeeping and some paint work,"
Brass has donated other boats to AMI in the past.
"Rather than sell the donated boats right away, AMI keeps
all donated vessels for at least two years:' he said. 'They're
a stand-up, legitimate organization."

WATERFRONT- N EWS.(OM
Jubilee: An upcoming phenom on Als FEBRUARY 2002
Jubilee: An upcoming phenomenon on Alabama's Eastern Shore
By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Jubilee, a natural late summer phenom-
enon, unfolds in the hours from midnight to
dawn along Mobile Bay's eastern upper
shoreline. This is when all types of bottom
dwelling fish and shellfish pop to the surface
and rush en masse to shore at the same time.
Each night locals take turns patrolling
the beaches. When the seafood bonanza is
spotted, whistles and ringing bells sound.
Hundreds of seafood lovers scurry out into
the bay waters with every bucket, net and
cooking pot available to scoop up with
minimal effort a bounty of shrimp, lob-
sters, crabs, flounder, eels and other small-
er sea delicacies.
This phenomenon is reportedly pecu-
liar to Alabama's Eastern Shore towns of
Great Point Clear, Fairhope and Daphne as
well as a few remote bays in Asia. For
jubilee to occur, specific conditions must
exist. The previous day must have been
overcast or cloudy with a gentle wind from
the east, and a calm or slick bay surface.
The process is keyed by a rising tide as
the tide begins to fall it slows.
Scientists credit the quick changes in
the volume of fresh water meeting salt
water, such as after a heavy rain. It causes a
sudden lack of oxygen content in the water,
forcing bottom fish and crustaceans to the
surface. Once the oxygen-poor water mass
moves to the shoreline, the fish and shell-
fish swimming in front of it are trapped and
teem along the water's edge. Due to the lack
of oxygen, the jubilee-pummeled sea life
can not carry out normal muscular activities
such as swimming.
Jubilee winds down at sunrise when the
oxygen is produced by photosynthetic
activity of plant life in the water. It's then
that the impacted fish and shellfish high-tail
it back to their bottom-water habitat.
The magic of jubilee offers only a
snapshot to the opportunities that await in
bays and bayous filled with trout, sheep-
heads, reds and blues.
Further south in the Gulf of Mexico
from May through December, anglers try
their luck with the great sport fish: tuna,
barracuda, wahoo, bull dolphin, sailfish,
mackerel, shark and the big boys blue
and white marlin. Marlin weighing in at
upwards of 700 pounds are not uncommon
near the continental shelf.
While Baldwin County's southwestern
quarter is blessed with rolling farmlands to
its north and east, the bayside communities
are clearly the envy of its neighbors.
Daphne emerged in the early 18th cen-
tury simply as a gathering point for fur
traders from Europe. The town blossomed
as a resort area for Mobile and New Orleans
residents prior to the Civil War. Wealthy
families would flee the city during yellow-
fever ridden summers, crossing the 15-
mile-wide Mobile Bay expanse in boats to
pastel-painted summer homes and elegant
hotels that sprang up along the waterfront to
catch the bay breezes. Many of the stately
homes still stand.
Daphne is part of the nearly 40-mile
Sunset on Mobile Bay's
shoreline as seen from
Fairhope Pier. The
located on Alabam's
Eastern Shore has 2.5
miles of pristine beaches.
The town is known for its
strip of Eastern Shore that stretches from
Spanish Fort on Mobile Bay's northern lip
to Point Clear, where the bay broadens into
the Gulf of Mexico. The Point Clear area is
named for the jutting land which shelters
much of the rest of the Eastern Shore from
high winds and waves.
The Grand Hotel, extensively remodeled
in 1966 and again in 1981, has stood as a lav-
ish landmark of Point Clear for 150 years.
Eight miles south of Daphne lies
Fairhope. High on the bluffs with a
panoramic sweep of Mobile Bay, Fairhope
has long been known for its lovely parks,
rich with moss-draped oaks and a village
atmosphere of shops and local cuisine.
Settled in 1894 by a group of Iowans
who sought personal utopia, they created
the Fairhope Single Tax Colony. It repre-
sented freedom to enjoy public parklands
and seas, the fresh air and an environment
of self-actualization. Establishing a corpo-
ration, '~amnihe: leased the land within the
original village for 99 years. The tenants
own the improvements; the corporation
pays property, city and sales taxes into a
single tax on the land.
The single tax legacy is reflected in
Fairhope's 2.5 miles of pristine beaches, a
shady waterfront park with a municipal pier
that extends into Mobile Bay. Just up the
hill from the bay, the 100 year old town's
true nature is reflected in its ubiquitous gar-
denias, Washingtonia robusta, native Sabal
palms and roses nearly everywhere. Each
year, more than 200 new trees are planted
on streets and in parks.
Visitors browse shops (with totally
unique, locally produced gift items), bou-
tiques, cafes, restaurants and art galleries
along tidy, wide streets and brick-edged
sidewalks. The town has become a haven
for an artist migration, reflected by cultural
activities from cabaret dancing to tai chi to
the resort's many unusual shops.
Local cuisine is tasty, affordable, and
attractively prepared by gourmet chefs at
places such as the Renaissance Caf6, whose
always-in-demand Royal Red shrimp is best
topped off with a butter-rum-sauced bread
pudding and sultry-rich regional roast coffee.
Walking west on Fairhope Avenue,
scenic eye candy is provided as the road
winds around a large bluff, leading down to
the bayfront where charming cottages and
homes with cedar shake roofs. Waterfront
grounds are beautified by- live oak trees,
Spanish moss and lush clusters of azaleas,
camellias and an array of flowering plants.
One can only imagine the wonder
expressed by that tiny group of Iowans back
in the 1800s, when from those very bluffs
they gazed upon the tranquility of Mobile
Bay for the very first time.

Heavy-duty fenders built for large boats. Although
originally built for commercial vessels barges, ships / iC

ideal for large yawls, schooners, motor sailers, racer/
cruisers, etc. The material is resistant to sunlight, seawater,
mineral oils, cleaning agents and common solvents. High ~Lpg
abrasion resistance. No cords or linings to cause high internal air
pressure under heavy fendering conditions. The temperature range of
-68'F to + 140F allow use in arctic or tropical conditions.
