Arena to house Volvo's

Yachts expected to

By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
"We're around... heading north to the warmth of
the tropics. It's the first time I have seen the Horn on a
bright sunny day... We were only one mile off shore. It
was a fantastic sight the raw rock that's been scarred
by thousands of years of howling winds and raging seas.
There are no trees to be seen I guess it's too windy for
them to grow."
Ross Field,
Team News Corp. navigator

Never sailed around Cape Horn, have you? Too bad, but
if you hang out at the Volvo Ocean Race's stopover in
Miami, from March 27 to April 14, you're likely to run into
Ross Field and many of the 96 other sailors who shared the
experience with him on eight round-the-world racing yachts
early in February.
As Field's email implies, the sailing pro from New
Zealand has rounded the Horn before three times in the
Whitbread, as the Volvo race was formerly called from
1973-'98. Field's crews won two of those races.
Cape Horn, marking the margin of the ferocious
Southern Ocean, is one of sailing's great rites of passage. If
you can't perform it yourself, the Volvo stopover will give it
to you vicariously. For sailors whose dreams exceed the
range of their boats and budgets, the chance to pick the
brains of international pros could be priceless.
In fact, it is priceless: admission to the race village cir-

Technical boating seminars putting women at the helm


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
When Charlene Adair first heard about a boat diesel
engine maintenance class being offered for women only, she
couldn't believe her luck.
"I was very excited," said Adair, a retiree who owns a
40-foot powerboat and lives with her husband on
Hutchinson Island. "I'm the one who always does the
engine room. I've been looking for a class for a long time to
give me basic information on trouble shooting and normal
maintenance."
After taking beginner and advanced diesel engine class-
es in January through the Women Aboard organization,
Adair can change oil, filters and cooling water.
"I got a tremendous amount of information," she said.
"There are a lot of things I can do now that I wouldn't have
attempted before. I can do normal 100-hour servicing tasks.
I feel a little more self sufficient."
Knowing how to be in control on the water is some-
thing that all female boaters should possess, say those
involved with marine-related women's groups.
Having women-only classes is a way to boost self-con-
fidence and knowledge in a fun, safe, nurturing atmosphere,
they said.
In South Florida, there are many opportunities to take
single-sex seminars.
"There's a large diversity of classes out there and it's a
testimonial to the diversity of women," said Maria Russell,


founder of Women Aboard. "We really are lucky. There are
a lot of opportunities here, more so than other places."
Russell's organization, which is dedicated to enhancing
the boating experience for women, offers coed and women-
only boat diesel engine maintenance, powerboating and
fishing classes in Fort Lauderdale.
Upcoming sessions to be held on vessels will include a
powerboating class on March 3 and a fishing seminar on
May 11, Russell said.
"I think it's important that classes for women be offered
because they are less intimidating," she said. "It's a known
fact that men and women learn differently."
Sheroy Ouellette, owner of the Diesel Doctor, a mobile
marine repair maintenance facility based in Fort
Lauderdale, agrees that women learn better in a single gen-
der environment.
Ouellette has been in the industry for 19 years. She
began giving classes for women last year in boat diesel
engine maintenance.
"In the past, women felt left out," she said. "But they
want to learn these things."
There is still the attitude that women are viewed as
accessories. "But we're coming out of accessory mode,"
Ouellette said. "We're being pulled out of the glove box and
put into the engine room."
Ouellette's classes are so popular that up to 500 stu-
dents have shown up for a one-day session. Her courses give


Graduates from Women Aboard, an organization that
teaches diesel engine maintenance to women.

participants the basics on everything from minor repairs to
major overhauls.
Ouellette's classes have been sponsored by Women
Aboard, the Seven Seas Cruising Association and at West
Marine in Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach.
Her seminars started out geared for women only, but
expanded to include men after they began making requests
to attend.
Ouellette's next class will be a three-day course spon-

first Miami stopover
cling the American Airlines Arena will be free.
"The crews will be very much available," said Lily
Abello, a professional event organizer and executive direc-
tor of Ocean Race Miami. "We'll have guided tours down to
the dock areas. Crew members will be there to walk people
through the area and talk about each boat a little bit."
Volvo, which sponsored the race village at Port
Everglades in 1998, took over the quadrennial race when
British leisure industry conglomerate Whitbread plc cut ties
to sporting event sponsorship.
In the renamed 2001-02 race, there are eight boats, all
64-footers built to an identical design. Seven boats have 12-
man crews. One, the Amer Sports Too, has an all-female
crew of 13. They started the race last Sept. 23 at
Southahmpton, UK, and are scheduled to end it on June 9 at
Kiel, Germany. Total distance: 32,700 nautical miles, equal
to 37,657 land miles.
"We have 3,000 school children signed up for tours
from both Dade and Broward counties, from April 8-12,"
Abello said. "Those tours will be in the morning. We'll open
to the public at noon."
Seminars and group tours will take visitors close to the 64-
foot racing sloops. There will be sponsors' exhibits and tie-in
events as logical as regattas and as curious as pro basketball.
The event schedule lists seven Miami Heat home games
in bold type. Why? Well, the Heat donated the use of the
arena grounds and facilities, alongside a deepwater ship slip
where the yachts will tie up. It's a mega-favor that host com-
mittee chairman James McDonald got from Jay Cross, the
Heat executive who supervised the arena's construction.
The site is right across the Intracoastal Waterway from
the Port of Miami, with its huge cruise and cargo operations.

Riverland residents to join Dania Beach or Lauderdale


Waterfront issues expected to weigh
heavily in March 12 annexation vote
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Riverland residents will soon head to the polls, where
they will choose between incorporating their community
into Dania Beach or Fort Lauderdale.
They now live in unincorporated Broward County. The
vote that will change their residency takes place March 12.
As part of their decision, many residents will consider
which city will provide them with the best maintenance of
the area's waterways.
"The waterfront has a profound impact on all the homes
in Riverland" said Randy Dunlap, a resident.
The area sits south of Davie Boulevard, east of State
Road 7, west of Interstate-95 and north of the New River. It
has about 5,500 residents and 2,000 residences. Of those
properties, 750 are waterfront homes, he said.
Proponents to joining Fort Lauderdale say the city is
well-equipped to maintain waterways and offer protection
through its own marine patrol law enforcement unit.
But those favoring Dania Beach say that the city's small-
er hometown feel will make it more accessible to residents.
Dania Beach also has experience maintaining canals.
Riverland residents would continue to receive service from
the Broward Sheriff's Office, which contracts with Dania

Beach and now serves the community. The sheriff's office,
say Dania Beach proponents, has its own marine patrol too.
"Dania Beach is a waterfront community," said Emie
Long, president of Chula Vista Homeowners Association,
another section of Riverland. "I'm impressed with the way
they maintain their waterways and canals."
Long, a waterfront homeowner, also noted that Fort
Lauderdale has a law where private docks cannot be rented
to boaters. Long presently keeps his boat at rented, private
dock space in Lauderdale Isles.
"If we incorporate to Fort Lauderdale, I won't break the
law," he said. "I would have to find another spot for my boat."
Dunlap, who owns a waterfront home in the Lauderdale

Isles section of Riverland, is among those who favors incor-
porating into Fort Lauderdale. So is Joan Sheridan, who sits
on the Lauderdale Isles Civic Improvement Association's
board of trustees.
Fort Lauderdale has a set program of maintaining canals
that would suit the area, Sheridan said.
"They have a criteria where they dredge their canals to a
certain depth and maintain them," Sheridan said. "It's very
important to us to maintain our canals because that directly
affects our property values and our quality of life."
The Lauderdale Isles Civic Improvement Association
represents 700 homes. Most are waterfront, she said.
"The big issue in our community is the quality of our
water," Sheridan said. "We have a water management district
that was set up in 1970, with taxes going to the management
of our canals."
Their district has 10 canals and 13 lanes. Lauderdale
Isles contracts with the county for maintenance, she said.
Prior to the district being formed, vegetation had
clogged the canals so badly that it killed fish and boats could
not get out. The special taxing district has since alleviated
those problems. Spraying is now done on a regular basis,
she said.
"We would like to keep the special taxing
district," Sheridan said. "We feel we are able to control
the maintenance."
As for law enforcement on the water, some people in the
Riverland area do feel strongly about Dania Beach, mostly to
keep the Broward Sheriff's Office as their police agency,
Sheridan said.

Dirty creek, stormwater runoff fouling up Miami River, study says


Funds proposed to
improve infrastructure
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Compared to the estimated $63.5 million cost of
removing a century's polluted sediments from the Miami
River, another $18.3 million to prevent re-pollution may
seem like a sensible investment. Or, to put it another way,
why haul your boat out to paint the bottom without plug-
ging leaks below the waterline?
That's the point of a water quilii study bN the Miami
River Commission's stormwater subcominittee, which on
Feb. 4 reported 33 recommendations that will cost an esti-
mated $18,365,600.
But the variety of government agencies "that would
carry out the work don't have enough money) in thelr Olur'
rent budgets, so most improvements \wjjl lhae to wait.
One exception is Wagner Creek, an environmentally
notorious tributary of the river. Two sediment dredging
projects, estimated to cost $782,000, are scheduled to strit
this year by the city of Miami. The first job \~us expected
to be put out for bid at the beginning of Match.
"Almost 85 percent of the $18.3 million is proposed
for stormwater new treatment infrastructure and strategic
maintenance:' says David Miller, the commission's man-
aging director. "The system's been in poor condition for
years, but not much money has been put into improvement
and some of the money's been deferred to other projects.
"Stormwater runoff is one of those things that
nobody complains about until it's a problem. It's easy for
people to defer it, as long as the system's working."
It isn't working very well, according to the stormwa-
ter subcommittee, headed by Miami environmental engi-
neer Arsenio Milian.
Reduced to simplest terms, these are the stormwater
subcommittee's findings:

It may be much worse than they know, for there's no
data on oil and grease contamination and too little on sus-
pended solids to accurately chart that factor.
Wagner's contamination is even more impressive in
light of the available data.
While concentrations of ammonia nitrogen and phos-
phate phosphrous have declined fairly steadily year by
year since the early 1990s, total coliform bacteria density
has increased after a decline that lasted from 1994-98.
Coliform bacteria comes from septic tanks and toilets.
David Miller guesses the layer of goo is two or three feet
deep on average. Jackson, the city public works director,
says it could be six to 10 feet in places.
If you want to say, "that's disgusting," go ahead. No
one will argue except Wagner's manatees, who find edible
algae in the creek.
Jackson said the city will spend about $3 million,
roughly half of it a grant from the South Florida Water
Management District, to dredge the crud from Wagner and
line some banks with cement to prevent contaminated soil
from dribbling in.
How does this suit the creek bank population? Pretty
well, if lawyer-yachtsman Michael Catalano is a good
example. The creek trickles past the back yard of his office
in a converted house on Northwest 13th Court. When the
water's up, he can estimate the tidal stage in Biscayne Bay.
He used to see manatees there. Once a huge turtle waddled
across his parking lot. Not in a long time, though.
Catalano says he's never smelled sewage there, but a
big rain is a big problem, for the shallow creek can't hold
the water.
"Remember when we had that big flood a year and a
half ago? Our building's like a summer cottage, onblocks.
The water came up within an inch of destroying it. I was
watching water flowing around both sides of my building
at about four knots, rising higher and higher.
"I took antibiotics for cholera, dysentery...yeah, I
lived," he said. I've never smelled sewage here, but it's
dirty and there's junk floating and it needs to be cleaned
up. If they clean it up and make it deeper, to me that's a
worthwhile use of government money."

Waterway Cleanup official finds success in dwindling trash


Refrigerators and sofas plucked
from canals in 25-year-old
event's early years
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Joan Sheridan jokes that nothing would make her hap-
pier than working herself out of a job.
For the past 17 years, Sheridan has been a key player in
the Marine Industries Association of South Florida's annu-
al Waterway Cleanup, where she coordinates the sites
involved in ridding Broward's waterways of debris.
"I am so happy about where we are today with much-
improved water quality along the many, many miles of
waterwxay. thiououur Biolwaid Conlt\." said_-Sheridan,
who credits the MIASF strong backing over the past 25
years with making the event so popular.
The cleanup's silver anniversary will, be celebrated
on March 2 as an army.of volunteers, boats and, other sup-
port efforts again monitor canals where tons of trash will
be collected.
Sheridan. 60, is credited with helping to pull strings
and garner business, education and community support.
Marilyn Mammano serves as general chairman of the event.
"I think we have been able to measure our success by
seeing how much harder it is today to actually find garbage
and trash in the waterways," Sheridan said.
While there's always a sizeable amount of trash col-
lected, volunteers are not seeing what they did years ago.
"We pulled up refrigerators, motorcycles, sofas and
unbelievable amounts of large refuse," Sheridan said. "I
was just so sad in those days seeing how people abused the
natural waterways-and destroyed the quality of the rivers
and the life in them."
Last year's event included more than 3,000 volunteers,
hundreds of donated boats and more than 50 tons of trash
collected at 28 sites. This year is expected to match that,
with 30 sites involved in the daylong event.
Sheridan began a crusade in water quality in 1970
when she and her Lauderdale Isle neighbors in unincorpo-
rated Broward were shocked at the vegetation that was
strangling the life out of their waterways, leading to a mas-
sive fish kill.
The neighborhood created a special taxing district to
generate funds to remove the excess vegetation, allowing


*Ufle


boaters to navigate their canals. That effort continues today
by special spraying of the canals.
Sheridan's interest in water issues prompted her to
become involved with the MIASF Waterway Cleanup in
1985, when there were only about 13 sites and a few hun-
dred volunteers armed with plastic bags. Today, the number
of sites and volunteers has almost tripled, while big
Dumpsters can be found at collection sites.
"I can't believe the difference these years have made
and it's been an educational goal of all of us to involve
schools and community groups, so there is awareness of the
water quality issue all year round," said Sheridan.
As a thank you to volunteers, custom cleanup T-shirts
designed each year by local students are handed out as are
special flags for volunteer boats. Shendan also has made
the program a certifiable community service project.

Sheridan, who enjoys promoting the area's natural
resources, serves as a leader on numerous boards. She's
trustee of the Lauderdale Isles Civic Improvement
Association, active in the Broward Urban River Trails
(BURT), and chairperson of the Southwest Coalition of
Civic Associations, which brings together neighborhood
groups of southwest Broward to promote improvement pro-
jects. She also was named chair last year of the Municipal
Services Advisory Board, which seeks to focus government
attention on preserving greenways.
And Sheridan has no plans to slow down.
"I love doing what I do and seeing the positive
responses we get to some of these programs," she said. "I
believe it takes each one of us to pull together with our
neighbors to make a difference in our environment and our
quality of life."

Commerce


A short talk abc

longshoremen

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
In the public mind. "longshoremen"
and "stevedores" conjure up an image of
tough men strong in will and body, who
move heavy cargo back and forth from
commercial ships to dockyards as they
keep the nation's commerce stream going
ever forward.
While this description fits many long-
shoremen, the title legally applies to a sur-
prisingly varied group of workers in the
marine industry.
This complicated definition of long-
shoremen can be traced to the end of the
1800s when some states started initiating
their own workers' compensation schemes.
The original idea behind workers' comp
was to allov a laborer a "no fault" remedy
for on the job injuries without the need for
filing suit and going to court to collect for
those injuries. At that time courts were even
less sympathetic in granting awards for
worker injuries than they are now.
It was decided by the courts in the early
20th century that traditional longshoremen
were not entitled to take part in these state
developed workers' comp programs, since
their jobs were maritime in nature, and
therefore of national concern instead of
falling under the jurisdiction of any specific
state. This left longshoremen with the courts
as their only source for seeking compensa-
tion for a work related injury.
The U.S. Congress tried several times -
to modify statutes to allow longshoremen
to use state worker compensation remedies,
but the Supreme Court kept sending such
attempts back to the legislature because
they saw the process as lacking the nation-
al uniformity required under maritime law.
Finally in 1927, the U.S. Congress
passed the Longshoremen's and Harbor
Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA),
which gave such workers certain consistent


remedies for their job related injuries. This
time, the Supreme Court said that the leg-
islation met the constitutional standards
for maritime uniformity.
Since that time, the Longshoremen's-
Act has become a source of much confu-
sion among employers, employees, insur-
ers, and even among members of the legal
community.
The primary concern through the
years has focused on who is and isn't cov-
ered under this act. This has become an
important distinction, because if an
employer fails to provide the proper cover-
age for an employee, the employer can not
only be sued but may also incur severe
penalties, including payment of all attor-
neys' fees.
Now, who is covered under the act
begins simply enough. It states that an
"employee" for purposes of the act is:
"...any person engaged in maritime employ-
ment, including any longshoreman or other
person engaged in longshoring operations,
and any harbor worker including a ship
repairman, shipbuilder, and shipbreaker..."
The act then describes a rather long and
complex list of people who are not covered,
including the master and crew of any vessel,
certain clerical and security workers, and
certain types of vendors and suppliers.
It should also be noted that Congress
has not made the "who is covered" list any
easier by adding, over the years, certain
civilian employees on military bases and
some workers in the District of Columbia as
people who receive benefits under the act.
Needless to say, because the initial
description of a covered employee under
the Longshoremen's Act is so inclusive, the
exclusion list has become very important,
and has often become a matter of much
interpretation and consternation.

Work ethic in th,

marine commun

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
An interesting phenomenon is taking
place in the mega-yacht service and repairs
industry in Broward County. The anomaly
hal been fueled primarily by the expanding
infrastructure of local service providers and
experts who offer capabilities beyond what
the typical shipyard facility can provide.
It has been strengthened by the willing-
ness of some yards that recognize the trend
and have sought to establish their position in
the niche by creating or rearranging their
facilities to accommodate.the new M.O. And
I suspect that it will be confirmed in the years
to come as traditional operational philoso-
phies begrudgingly give way to the new.
So what is this mysterious phenomenon,
and how has it come to be?
Quite simply, it's the little guys the
service providers and aspiring individuals
who have carved out a level of expertise
and a niche in the midst of an explosive
shipyard industry.
These are people who have worked in
shipyards, want more than a typical 7:30 to
4 p.m. routine to occupy their lives and have
decided to go out on their own. They are
visionaries whose work ethic has driven
them to believe they can raise the standard
and create a product that the industry will
recognize, desire and buy.
As the marine industry continues to
grow and Fort Lauderdale basks in the glory
of its titltas-"yaichtii'n'g pital of the woldd"
it is clear that some'of the big shipyards are
being humbled into retreat from their previ-
ous positions toward subcontractors.
It is true that all the requirements for
entry into a yard have to be met, but that
notwithstanding, it is also true that many
subcontractors have gained respect from
vessel owners and captains. Credence is
given to their subcontractor's advice on a


choice of yards that are willing to work
with them.
So the pendulum is swinging, but this
time more rapidly in favor of the subcon-
tractor environment. Don't get me wrong:
shipyards will always have the final say
since they provide the conduit through
which all others gain access to a vessel.
But as others recognize a competitive
advantage to spreading some of the wealth
and creating a more palatable environment
for their customers, long-term change will
be inevitable.
Captains would prefer to have a choice
when determining who will perform ser-
vices to their vessel. Traditionally, once the
vessel had been hauled in a shipyard, all in-
house services would necessarily be uti-
lized to the exclusion of outsiders (subs).
The prevailing labor rate would apply
in standard form and the machine would
turn out a product that fit its own schedule
and met its own standard of "yacht quality."
That wasn't always a bad thing. But
over the years, complacency may have
allowed a dangerous comfort zone to creep
into the mix. The reasoning is that repair
yards were in such extreme demand that it
was not necessary to dot all the "i's," cross
the "t's," or go the extra mile to service a
customer in order to be profitable.
In fact, repair yards were in such
demand that some folks got downright arro-
gant about it, and I believe that's what pro-
vided the catalyst for the shift in industry.
Many employees saw what was going
on and felt they could do a better job. They
left their positions and struggled to fight
their way into the market. Some failed, but
many prospered, and hence the expanding
infrastructure in South Florida blossomed.
Fort Lauderdale would not be lavished
with the "yachting capital of the world" title,

Residents charmed by Lighthouse Point's friendly town feel


This is one in a series of special features looking at
neighborhoods that line Broward County's waterways.
This month's feature examines Lighthouse Point.

By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
LIGHTHOUSE POINT --In a community where
most people reside on or near water, Shelly Watkins is happy
whenever she can get on land.
Watkins and her family live aboard their 65-foot trawler
docked at the Lighthouse Point Marina in Lighthouse Point.
"I knew as soon as we came to Lighthouse Point that
this is where we wanted to be," she said, noting the charm of
the redeveloped marina, which offers almost a New England
fishing village atmosphere except for a backdrop of brightly
multi-colored townhouses.
Lighthouse Point is located south of Deerfield Beach
and north of Pompano Beach. It is bordered by Federal
Highway to the west, the Intracoastal to the east, Northeast
24th Street to the south, with Northeast 36th Street its north-
ernmost point.
Watkins loves to play tennis at McDonough Park, locat-
ed in the middle of the city between Northeast 27th and 28th
avenues, where local families enjoy community activities.
The park is only a few streets away from the Intracoastal and
isles lined with backyard boats.
On any given day, streams of walkers, bikers and cars
head to the park.
"I think that our community is a lot like the mythical
TV town of 'Mayberry RFD,'" said Faith Pittilla. manager
of the pro shop and activities coordinator at the Lighthouse
Point Tennis Center in McDonough Park. "The people here
are honest, trusting, friendly and there really is a sense of
neighborhood."
Every day tennis players ranging from kids to adults
crowd the courts in what is a social meeting place.
"I really like living here and seeing how many people
walk, ride bikes and whatever to come to the.park," said
Pittilla.
For Watkins and her daughter, Courtney, 4, going to the
park is a real treat because it puts land beneath them. She
was married on a boat and lived on one in Chicago before
heading to Florida last June with husband, Robert, captain-

ing the vessel.
They searched Florida's west coat and several water-
front areas:on the east before deciding on Lighthouse Point.
"The people here are so friendly and there are a number
of them living on their boats, although most in the marina
are there for weekend recreational excursions," she said. "I
just felt right at home the minute we visited here and now
that I am a resident, I love it even more."
From the brightly polished brass to the rich teakwood
throughout several rooms, Watkins' vessel offers the family
a different lifestyle from other waterfront homeowners.
"The only thing I miss is that we're limited in how many
people the boat can hold," she said. "I love to entertain and
that limits the number we can invite at any one time."

A majority of Lighthouse Point's residential lots -
1,654 of 3,200 are waterfront, according to the City
Clerk's office. The city's 10,500 population is gradually
shifting away from seniors, who once settled in the commu-
nity as a retirement retreat, to younger families.
"We've seen our parish grow in younger families:' said
the Rev. Frederick Brice, pastor of St. Paul the Apostle
Catholic Church, which is located adjacent to McDonough
Park. He recalls that originally the park was part of the
church grounds, but five acres were sold to the city when the
church decided it didn't need the land for a school.
"This is a very lovely, self-contained community,"
Brice said, noting a "nice mixture" of young and older res-
idents, some of whom are in their 90s. St. Paul's oldest
member is 103.
"Unfortunately, many of our original members have
passed away and many of those smaller homes where they
lived have been demolished to make way for the larger,
expensive ones that are changing thelook of some streets"
John Trudel, the city's recreation director, said it is the
close-knit, small town atmosphere that "makes us the best
kept secret in Broward County."
With the water as a draw, Lighthouse Point is considered
an upscale community with big million dollar-plus homes
going up on waterfront parcels. But there are still smaller
properties on side streets in an affordable range for families.
Sandwiched between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale,
Lighthouse Point residents are offered city life, while com-
ing home to quiet neighborhoods.
Last month the city hosted its second annual
Lightkeeper's Day with an old-fashioned parade, games and
special events. Earlier this year, open houses at the fire and
police station included free hot dogs and drinks and a chance
to meet face-to-face with police and firefighters.
"We've become almost like a little sanctuary that we all
guard and don't want to see change much:' said Trudel, a res-
ident since 1959 and the city's recreation director since 1974.

Boaters permitted to g t V o rs as ty MARCH 2002

Boaters permitted to greet Volvo racers as they arrive


McDonald, a sailor and sailing fan, learned after the last
Whitbread that Volvo's promotional executives would not
return the race to Fort Lauderdale, where public attendance
apparently had not met expectations. Worse, they were not
even considering Florida for a stopover.
McDonald set out to persuade Volvo to look at Miami.
He knew he needed a good location, but was not sure where.
"I was looking at different parks when all of a sudden
- aha!" he said. "We got the arena and we can use their
facilities. What a perfect venue. It's an ideal location, an
absolute jewel."
The grounds behind the arena now are nothing but a bulk-
headed expanse of hard-packed sand with the portable office
of Ocean Race Miami, the non-profit organizer McDonald set
up. Wallowing past it at the required idle speed on the ICW,
Up close
Volvo's Miami Ocean Race village will be located on
the east side of Biscayne Boulevard between Bayside and
Bicentennial Park in Miami. The nearest expressway
access is from 1-95 via the 836/1-395 connector. Port-
bound traffic (many cargo containers on trucks) uses that,
so motorists may also want to consider exiting I-95 from
the 112/1-195 connector at northeast 36th Street, and dri-
ving south on Biscayne Boulevard from there, or taking the


milmormalac"Im~li a


you'd hardly imagine the transformation coming.
Abello said boaters are welcome to greet the Volvo rac-
ers as they arrive at the Miami sea buoy off Government
Cut. Arrivals are anticipated on March 27-28. By then, tim-
ing will be easier to predict. The race itself and every ves-
sel in it can be tracked in copious detail by photos, videos,
audio and emails from the website http://www.volvoocean-
race.org/homepage.html
Want to participate? Abello said local sailing clubs are
supplying volunteers, but the host organization still needs
help running the race village. Look for details on the local
website http://www.volvooceanrace.org/port/miami/ or call
Rob DeSantis, the coordinator of volunteers, in Miami at
786-777-1530.
Technical sailing knowledge is a plus, but not required.
If you have none, there's hardly a better way to get it with-
out wetting your deck shoes.
downtown exit off 1-95 (the next one south of 836/1-395)
and driving north on Biscayne Boulevard.
From Miami Beach, the Julia Tuttle and MacArthur
causeways both have Biscayne Boulevard exits.
There's some parking in the arena building but it may
not be available when the Heat plays. There are private
parking lots on the west (southbound) side of Biscayne..
Bayside Marketplace, just south of the arena, has a parking
garage too.

Determining the proper mix in shipyards


were it-not for tle incredible wealth of expertise and quality
craftsmanship that abounds outside traditional shipyard life.
The yards themselves would be strangled in their ability to ser-
vice customers whose vessels have reached a level of sophisti-
cation that could rival the space shuttle in many cases.
The shear number of vessels could never be handled
exclusively by the mom and pop shipyards that respectfully
got the ball rolling in Fort Lauderdale from the start. And, as
an old gentleman whom I grew to respect dearly in this
industry once said, "how many steaks can you put into your
mouth at one time anyway?"
The proper mix for subcontractor involvement in local
shipyard operations is making its case in a big way. Some


yards have made incredible advancements in achieving the
ideal scenario.' '
Some have scoffed at the thought of giving up any con-
trol. But one thing is for.sure: the number of vessels is grow-
ing rapidly, with over 11.4 miles of new construction under
way (according to the 2002 Showboats Magazine Order
Book) boats are getting bigger and many, many more are
headed this way in the very near future.
If we properly utilize our local subcontractor infrastruc-
ture to establish a world-class "yacht quality" standard
unsurpassed throughout the globe, then I would suspect that
Fort Lauderdale's mega-yacht service and repair industry
will have a very bright future indeed.

Residents look at options offered by Dania and Lauderdale


7L0141,111610I
'They have patrolled the community for many years
and it is hard to change," she said. "I personally have had
wonderful help from BSO. However, I do not feel that Fort
Lauderdale wouldn't do as good a job."
Other issues surrounding the incorporation vote are
where tax monies will be spent. Lauderdale Isles is in one
of three voting districts that comprise Riverland.
"Our district is trying to emphasize the issues that we
have in common with the other two districts," said Gary
Starkweather, a Lauderdale Isles homeowner.
The biggest is that if Riverland residents vote into
Fort Lauderdale, they will be a more recognized part of
the city, with tax money being spent closer to home on
improvements to Davie Boulevard, he said.
Dania Beach has already stated that its emphasis is to
improve their downtown district, which would have no
positive impact on us; he said.
"If we were to go into Dania Beach, we would be a
northern appendage, separated by the North New River,"
Starkweather said.


Michael A. Natale, past president of the Chula Vista
Isles Homeowners Association, said he was unimpressed
by a pitch Dania Beach officials made at an association
meeting two months ago.
"I was very pro-Dania Beach because of their small
town mentality, but they dropped the ball on pursuing the
region," Natale said. "Basically, they said we will answer
the phone 'if you call. So availability and accessibility
seem to be their big thing. They didn't say anything about
solving or helping with problems."
Chula Vista has about 340 homes, of which 15 percent
are on the water, said. Natale, Who lives on the waterfront.
"We have a fair number of boats that come into these
canals and we also get manatees that come in here," he
said "The waterfront is important to us."
Chula Vista has six canals. Fort Lauderdale has
responsibility for three canals. Dania Beach is responsible
for the other three, Natale said.
"If there's a downed tree in one of three canals that is
in itsjurisdiction, the county is pretty responsive," he said.
"But they don't do anything else in Chula Vista."


But Natale believes if Fort Lauderdale were asked,
they would do a better job. "If we were to become incor-
porated, they would step up and restore the natural beauty
of the canals," he said.
The downside of incorporating into Fort Lauderdale
would be losing the sheriff's office, Natale said.
There are people who are very happy with BSO," he
said. "My priority for the area is police protection. We
would like the same level of service that we currently
receive from BSO."
Long likes the idea of sticking with. the sheriff's
office. He also likes that Riverland would become about
24 percent of Dania Beach's voting public, as opposed to
only four percent in Fort Lauderdale.
Although he has swung his support toward Dania
Beach, Long said that.he is trying to stay as neutral as pos-
sible.
"I presented both sides to my homeowners associa-
tion," Long said.
He believes there will be a good turnout come elec-
tion day. "I think it will surprise people,'" he said.

Women testing the waters in male-dominated boating world


scored by Women Aboard, April 5 to 7. A
location in Fort Lauderdale will be
announced.
A basic engine repair class will take
place the first day at a cost of $150. The
final two days will be on advanced repair for
$300 including breakfast and lunch. The
course will be coed.
But many women prefer the female-
only classes. "The overriding opinion is that
men would hinder them," Ouellette said. "I
tell the women not to be intimidated. To
stand in the back of the class, you won't
learn anything."
Diane Hallaran. of Pompano Beach.
thinks that women gain more by being
around their own.
"They feel more conformable," said
Hallaran, who is a volunteer on the organiz-
ing committee for Ladies Let's Go Fishing.
"Most of the guys who fish don't have
the patience or they want to do it for you."
she said. "You go to these seminars because
you want to learn how to do it yourself and
be independent."
Hallaran took a female-only seminar
from Ladies Let's Go Fishing five years
ago. Since then. she has helped the group set
up events around the state.
"I fish. but my husband doesn't,"
Hallaran said. "I went to take the Ladies
Let's Go Fishing class to know how. to use'
the equipment. I learned the difference
between off-shore and in-shore fishing and
how to bait a hook. I'learned a lo." -
Today, Hallaran goes out-on the party
boats by herself. "A few times I've outfished
the guys," she said.
She's also met a lot of new friends'
through Ladies Let's Go Fishing and they
frequently get together for fishing'trips.
SLisa Steinberg, an administrator with
Ladies Let's Go Fishing. said i hen'the Focn'
Lauderdale-based group formed'six- years
ago, organizers:' eie expecting'maybe 50'


participants for their first seminar. They got
100, she said.
The organization provides hands-on
seminars for women several times a year
throughout the state and will be expanding to
Hawaii, with a seminar to be held in August.
The next ladies fishing seminar will be
March 8 -10, at the International Game Fish
Association Hall of Fame and Museum in
Dania Beach. The cost is $105. Fishing trips
will cost extra, from $12 to $130 depending
on the outing.
The event will feature talks by experts
on such topics as bottom, off-shore, in-shore
and fly fishing. There will be hands-on prac-
tice sessions including trailer backing, knot
tying and spin and fly casting.
"We hear that either women have the
money, but don't know how to get started
and need someone to break down the barri-
er that keeps them from buying boats and
tackle:' Steinberg said. "Or, we hear from
women who find it difficult to learn from
their boyfriends or husbands. A lot of
women are intimidated to ask questions or
make mistakes with men in the room. Hence
our nickname 'The No Yelling School of
Fishing.'
The seminars offer instruction from
beginner to advanced, but most of the stu-
dents are novices. Steinberg said.
"We've had women tell us that we've
changed their lives," she said. "We've
Opened the door to a whole new realm that
they've never experienced."
S While Ladies Let's Go Fishing is taking
its participants to new heights, South Florida
Women Divers is taking theirs to new
depihs.
SThe group meets 7 to 9 p.m. the first
Wednesday of each month at Pioneer Park
in.Deerfield Beach. Each month, there are
different speakers, safety. tips and an
exchange of information.
The organization also -sponsors dive,
tiips, both local and aboard,.as well as.
camping,'kayaking, snorkeling and water


Up close
Many organizations offer female-only
seminars on boating and water sports.
These groups include:
Ladies Let's Go Fishing: Call 954-
475-9068, or log on to www.ladieslets-
gofishing.com
South Florida Women Divers: Call

Women Aboard: Call 561-775-4688,


adventure outings.
"There's always two or three things
going on all the time," said Susan Schulz,
publicity director for South Florida Women
Divers.
The organization is 10 years old and has
around 100 members who range in age from
16 to 80, she said.
"Because of our group, there are more
women diving and we encourage them to go
to the next level of certification," Schulz
said. "The industry recognizes us."
Russell's Women Aboard website
acknowledges South Florida Women
Divers, Ladies Let's Go Fishing and other
groups.
"I think it's important we support each
other," said Russell, who is a member of
South Florida Women Divers and has par-
ticipated in events sponsored by Ladies
Let's Go Fishing.
Russell has also signed up for
Suddenly Alone, an upcoming seminar that
teaches participants what to do if the skipper
becomes incapacitated or falls overboard.
Although the seminar is coed, it attracts
a lot of interest from women, said Karyn
James, who is servings a local contact per-
son for the event with her husband Steve.
Suddenly Alone will be held 8 a.m. to 5
p.m: on March 2 at the Radisson Bahia Mar
Resort in Fort Lauderdale. Sponsors are the,
Cruising Club of America, an 80-year-old
organization, ..and the Bonnell Cove
Foundation, a non-profit organization that
supports safety at sea and'maritime ecologi-
cal issues.
The-cost is $100 per person. The fee
includes -lunch; a workbook and-speakers
such as Nancy McKelvey of New England

Alone seminar call 954-525-4964.

and Pam Wall of Fort Lauderdale, both of
whom are experienced circumnavigators.
Topics will be Stabilizing the Situation
(getting control of the boat), Man
Overboard Search and Rescue,
Customizing MOB Equipment to Your
Boat, Making Proper Mayday Call and
Answering Coast Guard Questions and
Getting the Boat Back to Safe Harbor.
This is the second time that the
Suddenly Alone seminar has been offered.
Its debut at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut in
April drew a sold out crowd of some 300
people, James said.
"We have friends who sailed around the
world twice, attended the seminar at Mystic
Seaport and they learned about things they
have never thought of," she said.
The seminar does not teach people how
to be a boater. "We're teaching them how to
take control of the boat," James said. "The
man overboard issue; it's like writing your
will. It's something you don't want to think
about, but it's something you have to do."
Wall, who works as a yacht outfitter at
West Marine in Fort Lauderdale, sailed
around the world from 1985 to 1991 with
her husband and two children in a 39-foot
sloop.
Wall never encountered a man over-
board situation. Bit she has heard stories of
people who have.
"I hope women-gain the knowledge.that
if anything did happen, they would have a
plan of action," she ..said. "What this pro-
gram does is give you aniinsurance policy. It
gives you a method of gaining and keeping
control of the vessel that you have suddenly
become alone on. It gives you an outline of
what to do."

The answers to these and a myriad of other vintage
maritime questions reside inside Philadelphia's
Independence Seaport Museum.
Overlooking the city's revitalized waterfront at his-
toric Penns Landing, the 100,000-square foot museum
focuses on the late 19th and early 20th century urban
industrial maritime history of the Delaware River,
Delaware Bay and their tributaries.
Visitors find historic ship tours, a working ship, edu-
cational programs, a world-class maritime library and, a
series of changing maritime exhibition galleries that
reflect dynamic computer and video technology.
The "Boats Float" exhibit incorporates hands-on
interactive-displays and a slew of maritime artifacts and
objects, engaging visitors in the art and science of boat
design and building.
It's possible to navigate sailboats in an "air pond"
with wind whooshing from huge fans, or view classic
tools and measuring instruments. Craftsmen who bend
and shape planks of wood to build ships of distinctive
shapes are available for conversation.
At "Divers of the Deep," visitors pass through huge
coral reefs and a 430-gallon aquarium where brilliant
marine life resides. Here you'll learn that the earliest under-
water explorer was Alexander the Great in 430 BC, investi-
gate offshore oil drilling do probe underwater archeology.
The exhibition reviews the invention of the diving
helmet and suits to early SCUBA gear, analyzes the
explosive growth of the sport of skin-diving with an
intriguing salute to diving icon Jacques Cousteau.
In "Home Port Philadelphia," you can climb into the
grey, wooden bunks in steerage that were inhabited by
weary immigrants arriving a century ago.
Try your skill at unloading cargo from container ships
with miniature cranes or welding and riveting a ship's


"Workshop on the Water"
is one of the exhibits at the
Philadelphia Independent
Seaport Museum.


hull. Along the Penn Landings docks, the 1892 cruiser
Olympia, America's oldest steel warship, and World War
II submarine Becunia, kick off the first phase of a long
range venture to bring a cluster of historic ships to the site.
A short walk from the Independence Seaport Museum
brings you to Philly's Old City that includes the Liberty
Bell and a string of the nation's most revered historic sites
such as Independence National Historical Park.
Rows of red-bricked foundries, factories and ware-
house space have been transformed into cozy cafes,
bustling galleries and upscale retail boutiques. Within the
last few years, the Old City has blossomed into a swanky
nightclub, dance club and an restaurant hub.
Leading the charge has been The Continental, a diner
on the corner.of Market and Second Streets that opened in


1996, The Continental is famed for its martinis request
a Dean Martin, and it'll come with a complimentary
Lucky Strike and book of matches.
Across the street sits Cuba Libre where one gets a
movie-set feel a 1940s Havana street scene that
vibrates with tropical colors. An indoor courtyard is
flanked by 35-foot high facades of houses and curvy bal-
conies decked out with blue shutters, stained glass, orna-
mental wrought iron and terra-cotta roof tiles. There are
huge ceiling fans that sport flower petal-like rotating
blades, towering palms, dazzling Cuban art on the walls,
seductive Cuban music, and friendly servers dressed in
traditional guayaberas shirts.
Cuba Libre presses its own sugar cane, boasts 47
'varieties of rums and claims to serves about 2,500 mojitos
a week. Chef Guillermo Veloso's appetizers are designed
for sharing. As for entrees, try the grilled skirt steak

Philly's former factories have given way to rocking


"churrasco," suntanned salmon, seared
Chilean sea bass and arroz con polio, spicy
chicken and saffron rice tossed with chick-
en, chorizo and artichokes. All were fla-
vorful, satisfying, affordable and served
with a sparkling presentation.
On selected weekends a trio of on-the-
move Cuban musicians serenade diners on
both levels. The Cuban music ignites both
the downstairs and upstairs mojito bars
where patrons have got their mojo working
to the mambo rhythm.
Walking a few doors south down Second
Street brings you to the Tin Angel acoustic
cafd. Comfortable, warm and intimate, the
"Tin," is located in a 150 year-old former city
townhouse upstairs from Serrano, a cozy,
neighborhood restaurant that offers splendid
international cuisine downstairs.
The stage sits at the far end of the
long, narrow room that accommodates 105
people. Richly hued murals cover the
walls and the closely spaced tables are lit
by candles. With impeccable acoustics, it's
almost a living room-type setting where
legendary performers such as Richie
Havens, Roger McGuinn, and the late


S". .. .


The 1892 cruiser Olympia, America's oldest steel warship, is docked along Penn
Landings and is kicking off the first phase of a long range plan to bring historic ships
to the site.


Townes Van Zandt have graced the stage.
Contemporary singer-songwriters like
Freedy Johnson and Francis Dunnery pack
the room for multi-night shows. During
the shows, gourmet coffees, cappuccinos,
teas, desserts are offered, as well as a var-


ied selection of liquors, wine, beers and
mineral waters.
Further down Second Street is Khyber
Pass, known as the bedrock of regional live
music. The brown brick building has been
serving drinks and rollicking times to its
patrons since 1856. In the 1960s it became
a venue for folk acts, but since the early


MARCH 2002


; new night spots
1970s the Khyber has been the hub of the
local rock music scene. The bar is stocked
with a bonanza of international, national
and regional brewers that numbers more
than 100 bottles.
A block east on Front Street,
Warmdaddy's, a 165-seat restaurant and club
delivers everything from delta blues to zyde-
co teamed with real-deal southern cuisine.
Late evening revelers head to Club 32,
next to Cuba Libre. Opened last fall, the
second-floor space is Old City's "hippest"
nightspot fashioned in steel blues, low
lights and pulsating sounds. Its hook is a
European table-side bottle service.
Iced-down bottles of alcohol from
vodka to Veuve, as well as shots in glasses
of ice arrive at reserved red-velvet booths
that wrap around the front walls of the club.
A convenient home-base is the Penn's
View Hotel which blends historic charm
and contemporary comfort with its 40-
guest rooms (some with a jacuzzi, fire-
place) overlooking the bustling waterfront
scene of Penns Landing.
