Broward 'fired-up'

Boaters instructed on safe disposal
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Broward County waste management officials are trying
to get local boaters all fired up over disposing their old flares.
A promotional campaign to generate more interest in the
year-old boat flare disposal program kicked off on April 1.
Fliers are being distributed to the public through BassPro
Shops in Dania Beach, various marinas, the Coast Guard
Auxiliary and the U.S. Power Squadron, said Joel King, haz-
ardous waste coordinator with the Broward County Office of
Integrated Waste Management.
"We're doing the promotion because we. were not get-
ting enough flares," he said. "We want to spread the word and
let more people know about it."
He cited a survey conducted by the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection that showed 38 percent of out-
dated flares were being thrown in the regular trash, and half
of the boaters questioned didn't know that items were con-
sidered hazardous waste.
Now, boat flares can be dropped off at two county-run
collection sites, at 2780 N. Powerline Road in Pompano
Beach and 5601 W. Hallandale Beach Blvd. in Hollywood.
Both locations are open from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
The program is only open to Broward residents. Proof of
residency is required, King said.
As part of the campaign, the county's waste manage-
ment office will also be teaming up with the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida to set up more future
collection sites at several marinas, King said.
The boat flare disposal program is an offshoot of the
county's household hazardous waste program, which col-

premiums





over flare program
lects such items as pesticides, oil, paint and pool chemicals,
King said.
County officials added flares to the household hazardous
waste program because there were no other disposal options,
he said.
"They can't be tossed in the trash and can't be set off in
a non-emergency situation," King said.
Officials especially didn't want boaters tossing their
flares in the trash for safety reasons.
"If a flare were to activate, it could set the garbage truck
on fire and hurt someone:' King said. "There was an incident
a few years ago in Florida where a boating flare was in the
back of a car. It was set off by a child and-caused serious
injuries."
Throwing flares in the trash also harms the environment.
"Flares.contain heavy metals," King said. "You want to make
sure you capture them before they reach the landfill."
There are three types of boating flares that the county
will take: hand held signal, aerial and smoke. By law, a flare
is only useable for 42 months from the date of manufacture,
"Anything older can't be kept on a boat and is against
U.S. Coast Guard safety requirements," King said.
Boat flares collected at the Broward county-run sites are
transferred by truck by the employees of the state fire mar-
shal's office. The flares are then put in special bur units that
are also used to get rid of ammunition, King said.
To find out more about boat flare collection, call the
Broward County Office of Integrated Waste Management at
954-765-4999.
Those living outside of Broward are advised to contact
their county's waste management department to see if offi-
cials have a similar collection program.

Waves of people visit Volvo Race's first Miami stopover


Organizers hope to trim race's
entry costs to increase dwindling
number of participants
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Miami's first experience as a host city for the Volvo
Ocean Race brought waves of people during the 19-day
stopover that ended April 15. But no one knows yet if the
race will visit Miami again when it sails up the U.S. Atlantic
coast in 2006.
The bayside site behind American Airlines Arena may
not be available again, though it's considered an awkward
spot for permanent residential or commercial development.
"We demonstrated a constructive and positive use for
that site," said James McDonald, a Miami lawyer who orga-
nized the Miami stopover when it appeared that the race
would bypass Florida. "We brought a global event to Miami.
They loved it down here, everything that happened in the
racc village the crews and everyone else. We got positive
feedback from the corporate people, too."
Helge Alten, Volvo's event management chief, said he
saw no reason not to return. "It's always nice to be in Miami
at this time of the year."
But next-time stopover locations are not being consid-
ered yet. The company's preliminary planning is focused on
rule changes to make sailing the race less expensive, thus


halting a steady decline in boat entries.
The event began last fall in England with eight boats,
(it's scheduled to end June 9 in Kiel, Germany) the lowest
number since the first Whitbread race in 1973. The last one,
which stopped over at Fort Lauderdale, began with 10
boats. In the race before that there were 15 starters, and
before that, 23.
The downturn isn't for lack of interest, Alten said, and

not even for lack of money, but for lack of enough money.
That plus the fact that often during the Whitbread years, the
race was overloaded with under-prepared, often amateurish
teams. The largest race ever, in 1981-'82, had 30 entries.
Now all the sailors are pros, among the best in the
world. Alten said $60,000 probably is a typical year's pay,
and captains may earn anything from $100,000 to $1 million.

MAY 2002rine industry lobbies against ctly insane rui

Marine industry lobbies against costly insurance requirement


Hefty premiums leave businesses
struggling, says recent survey
ByWILLAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
A large number of South Florida marine businesses
would expand and hire new employees if federal legislative
action were taken to reduce the financial burden of high
workers' compensation insurance costs, according to a
recent survey.
A report from the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida shows that more than $1 million now being paid out
by marine businesses annually in special insurance premiums
could go into expanded operations and payrolls if the man-
dates on workers' compensation coverage would change.
"We are at an important step to make some changes and
I am confident that within the next year local marine busi-
nesses might see some relief," said Kristina Hebert, vice
president of operations at Ward's Marine Electric and chair-
person of the special MIASF committee looking at the
insurance matter.
The MIASF is stepping up efforts this year to press for
changes in the Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers
Compensation Act to remove recreational marine industries
from under its umbrella.
The act, which went into effect in 1927 to protect

employees working in potentially dangerous ship building
environments, requires many marine industries to carry the
costly federal insurance to cover workmen's compensation
for injuries sustained on piers and adjacent marina lands.
This includes many small recreational marine business-
es and even self-employed contractors, who aren't necessar-
ily involved in dangerous work areas, but must carry the
coverage anyhow.
Normally, Florida's state workers' compensation
would be adequate coverage and far less expensive. But
the confusion over businesses operating on water requires
many of them to carry the more expensive federal long-
shoremen coverage.
In many cases, the federal coverage is three times more
expensive than state coverage.
For example, a marine carpenter who works in marina
areas on contracted projects, has to pay a $114 longshore-
men premium for every $100 of his payroll, compared to
only a $28 premium if he were under the state workmen's
comp program.
The recent SFMIA survey of its members showed that
of the 120 responding, 91 percent of them carry the long-
shoremen coverage, with the average annual premium total-
ing $96,500 for nearly 2,900 employees. That puts the total
for just those companies at more than $1 million annually.
Those same businesses said that they would hire more
employees and expand operations if they could drop the fed-
eral premiums and rely just on state coverage. The remain-
ing nine percent of responding businesses said they can't
afford to carry the insurance, even though they realize they
face hefty fines if they ever face an injury claim.


Hebert said that while many Broward area marine busi-
nesses are paying substantial premiums, there have been
only a small number of claims.
"It's big money from small businesses that we're talking
about," explained Hebert, who said the strain of the premi-
ums on operating budgets puts some small firms at risk of
hard economic times.
Because of high federal insurance premiums, consumers
are paying higher labor rates. And companies have a tougher
time when bidding against other companies, which may not
be in compliance with the insurance coverage and therefore
be able to offer lower rates.
The issue's complexity ranges from rates for different
job levels to confusion of when workers should be covered.
As a result, the MIASF has pulled together a national coali-
tion to take the Longshoremen's Act head on.
Climbing on board the lobbying effort are: the Marine
Operators Association of America, the Florida Marine
Contractors, the National Marine Manufacturers, Michigan
Boating Industries and California Marine associations, and
many others.
Lobbying efforts from the nationwide $26 billion marine
industry is expected to put some weight on political sources.
And while Florida may be leading the battle, other states
are joining in. A Washington state-based company has told

Volunteer tournament observer gets a taste of the big time


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
If you wonder what serious competitive fishing is like -
the kind with multi-hundred-dollar entry fees and multi-
thousand-dollar prizes try volunteering as an observer for
an offshore tournament.
That's as close to the action as you can get for free. If
you draw lucky boats, you win experience and knowledge,
which you get without touching a rod or reel.
For me, that's the hard part: Hearing someone holler
"fish on!" and all I can grab is my hat.
When Karen McGinley, executive director of the
Yamaha Contender Miami Billfish Tournament, said she
needed volunteers, I liked the bait. It was a good cause, with
most of the money raised by auctions and souvenir sales
donated to marine conservation projects. It was the toura-
ment's 20th anniversary event, a big one with 101 boats. All
the billfish caught had to be released.
"We have lots of volunteers," McGinley said. "They
do every job you can think of. We enslave them, and they
love it!"
Even so, she said, there are never enough observers.
Maybe it's because they have to enforce rules, watch out for
cheating and report violations even innocent ones that
could disqualify a catch. With big prize money at stake, peo-
ple might get mad. Arguments happen. They will happen.
You need a tough skin, like a triggerfish.
This tournament requires the use of circle hooks, which
have been shown to reduce gut-hooking and improve the
survival rate of released fish. I'm eager to see them in action.
Most of the people I'll meet this weekend are not, but that
hasn't stopped them from entering.

Friday
When coordinators Pierre and Anita Pierce hand out
assignments at the Miami Beach Marina, 41 observers are
lined up. Not bad, but 60 boats will be left without any.
We're sent to the ones most likely to contend for prizes.
I draw boat number 8, Rude Awakening, a 35-foot
Scopinich Express with lots of teak, but otherwise a nearly
pure fishing machine. Owner Rudy Polselli Jr., a burly con-
tractor from Jupiter, likes to run the boat himself to the fish-
ing waters. His captain, Ryan Greiner, takes over then.
These are experienced tournament fishermen, I remind
them of only a few key rules: No artificial leverage is
allowed. If Rudy's rod touches a gunwale while he's playing
a fish, it's disqualified. If a baitfish dies on the job, I tell the
captain and Mike Spivey, the mate, to show it to me before

tossing it overboard. If there's a breath left in it, that's live
chumming. It's forbidden.
"I'll be the coroner," I.say. "I'll check the bait's pulse,
Sbow my head and say 'This fish is dead.' Then you can toss
it." The guys laugh. I'll use the same line on other boats
tomorrow and Sunday.
Ryan Greiner asks if I know what a billfish looks like.
Pierre, the volunteer coordinator, asked the same question
last night..I'll hear it again each day.
Near Pacific Reef Light, barely half a mile into blue
water, Mike and Ryan work quickly to set the baits, dangling
from kite lines clipped to outriggers. Ryan climbs to the
bridge to keep the boat ahead of the kites and spot sails. In
the cockpit; Mike and Rudy tend five lines.
After a couple of hours with only a kingfish bite-off, we're
all fighting ennui. I wonder if we'll see any billfish except the
crew's tattoos a leaping marlin tattooed on the captain's
right leg and a smaller one on the mate's right shoulder.
"I hate fishing," Mike the mate says. "I like catching."
We see five billfish today, all sails. The first wraps up
Rudy's fishing line, jumps twice, unwraps and leaves. Two
more break the line, many yards above the hook. The ends
we get back are curled and abraded by the fish's beaks.
At last, Rudy catches a sailfish. It surfaces near the boat,
lunging toward us. We're all on the port side when the fish
bumps the hull there. Rudy reaches down and cuts.the line.
"It was gut-hooked," he says. "When they come at you like
that, they're gut-hooked."
More time passes. We talk about jinx-breakers, like eat-
ing a sandwich. Ryan and Mike.say it works for them too,
but only when they're the ones fishing. We all encourage
Rudy to eat, change hats, anything.
At 3:29 p.m. he gets a good hookup. The fish jumps up
once, surges across the surface, leaps up again, goes deep.
Ryan backs the boat down against the chop, splashing Rudy
and me. I hunker down to avoid blocking sightlines, moving
sideways like a crab to stay out of the way but close enough
to see if the rod contacts the gunwale, to be sure that Mike's

In the end, efficient teamwork gets the job done


hand grabs the leader but doesn't touch the rod. I have to
keep the rod tip and leader in sight. When they meet, or the
mate gets a hand on the leader, the catch counts.
It only takes five minutes, though it seems longer. We're
pumped up, high fives all around.
Everything worked as it should. Rudy catches his
breath. "It's our seventh tournament this year," he says.
"We're pretty focused."
Pretty far behind, too. Joe Neber and his son Matthew
on Contender One, are pretty far ahead of everyone. They'll
win the tournament with 18 billfish releases six releases
today, more than we'll even see.
Back at the docks, I describe Rudy's peculiar cutoffs -.
the line curled and abraded far up the line from a sailfish's
normal striking spot to Pierre Pierce. The coordinator of
volunteers is a veteran captain. He tells. me that happens in
kite fishing when you pop the release clip, probably too soon.
"All that slack line falls on the water," he says, wiggling
his hand in zigzag loops. "The fish swims through it and
wraps you up."
I want to mention this to Rudy, but can't find him in the
crowd. Maybe he'll figure it out for himself.

Saturday
I draw boat number seven, Miss Britt Capt. Ray
Rosher's 36-foot Rambo, a consistent tournament leader. I
was eager to meet Ray's sport, Nick Smith, who won the
tournament's Master Angler championship in 2000 and
2001, but they switched to Smith's own boat. Then Smith
fell ill on the first day and dropped out, so Rosher guided
another guy and was out-fished by his own co-
captain/mate, Alex Castellanos, who is running Miss Britt
for the Mr. Marlin professional fishing team. Robbie
Ramirez is the mate today.
The fishermen are George Vink, Jimmy Fakler and
Garvan McColgan. Their expensive caped white fishing
shirts, festooned with commercial sponsors' logos, remind'
me of race car drivers.
The ocean's choppy today, not with the five to seven-
foot seas that were forecast, but if it were on dry land you'd
want four-wheel drive and lug tires.
"Be glad you're not on a small boat today," Fakler said.
I'm glad Miss Britt has a soft ride. The cockpit rocket
launcher is loaded with unbranded thick-butt offshore poles


with gimbal nocks at the gripping ends, but they are, set up
with nine eye guides instead of rollers and common Penn
8500 spinning reels.
On each line, where it joins the 50-pound leader,
Castellands and Ramirez have rigged a bright pink float. It's
not a bobber, but a signal in the sky that says your bait is,
swimming just below. With a fish on the hook, everyone off
the boat watches the float. When it's reeled up to the rod tip,
we havp a completed catch.
We fish off Pacific Reef. It's as rough as a cob out here.
We're all sitting and holding onto something stable except,
Robbie, the mate, who needs both hands to rig squirming
baitfish while bracing against the stern. -
.The Mr. Marlin team gets a lot of false alarms: lind runs
out, line comes in, no billfish. At 11,a.m., Jifnmy eats a,
breadless sandwich, a slice of ham wrapped around a slice
of cheese. Then he lights a cigarette. .S
SFifteen minutes later, a small dolphin is caught. Score
one for ham and cheese, I say, but we want sailfish.
We get a strike at 11:29 am., and George gets the rod. A
sailfish breaks the surface, making several jumps near the boat.
In less than a minute,-with the rod tip bent to the water,
the pink float taps it.
"Did you see it?" George yells. He thinks he has a catch,
but I see chartreuse fishing line below the float. The leader's
further down. "I had it! You didn't see it?" he yells again.
"Must be these cheap sunglasses," I say unwisely.
George is agitated. "I'll give you a pair of good sunglasses,"
he growls.
The sailfish sounds. It's smaller than average, but fights
bigger. Six minutes pass before George can start pumping the
rod, recovering line, and about five more before the pink float
is jammed for real against the rod tip. Robbie the mate grabs
the leader, making the catch official, and releases the fish.
I'm relieved that the fish's bill didn't wear through the
line. It is Miss Britt's only sailfish today.
More sandwiches and drinks bring us no luck, but these
guys know tricks I don't. Garvin takes a dollar bill.
Methodically he folds and tears, folds and tears, then cere-
moniously hands the green confetti to George, who tosses it
over the stem.
I ask how long they'll wait before deciding it won't work.
"It always works," Garvan says.
"How long does it take?" I'm serious.
"Sometimes days," says George.

On the way back to the marina we're passed by Rude
Awakening, my day-before assignment. Three white and blue
sailfish pennants are flapping on the starboard outrigger line.
Back at the docks, I find Rudy Polselli admiring the
leader board. Rude Awakening is tied for third place in the
team standings and Rudy's in second place for the Master
Angler trophy. I read the scores and count on my fingers.
"I caught five today," he says.
"But you were flying three sailfish pennants."
"I only have three sailfish pennants."

Sunday
I'm on J-Hook, a 58-foot Viking owned by Bob
Christoph, who owns the Miami Beach Marina and others.
The boat has a gleaming engine room where you can walk
between the two big diesels, and a luxurious salon.
The waves are supposed to be 11-footers, measured
from trough to crest. It's hard to be sure.
There's no competitive pressure for the yacht today.
Bob'Christoph, Bob Jr. and their pals Tom Fitzgibbons and
Eddie Lacasa haven't caught a single billfish.
"I don't know why we need an observer; we're so far
behind," says mate Bryan Gunderson. J-Hook is one of sev-
eral boats that don't hurry to the 8 a.m. start. Capt. Rick
Morrell leaves the dock at 8:35 a.m., and stops on the blue
water nearest the beach, maybe 100 yards from the sea buoy.
Nobody expects anything, but watching the mate work
you'd never know it. Have you ever seen anyone sprint a
step and a half? Gunderson strings three fishing lines to each
of two kites. He doesn't hold still for a minute, adjusting
release clips, letting line out and bringing it in, changing
baits. I'd like to put a meter on this guy, see how many kilo-
watts he bu/ns up in an hour.
At 10 a.m. sharp, Bob Christoph takes the first strike, a
kingfish. In an instant, Eddie slips a gimbal belt around
Bob's waist. He muscles the fish to the stern, Gunderson
grabs the leader, Bob Jr. gaffs the fish and swings it aboard
- all so fast I don't see who opens the icebox. Immediately,
Gunderson and Christoph Jr. begin resetting the kite rigs.
That's as good as teamwork gets.
"Very well done," I tell Bryan.
"I love this-job," he says without stopping.

Your boat is

under arrest!

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
It's a nice day for a boat ride. So, you
get up early, put on your boating attire, call
your friends, and go to the dock.
When you- arrive at the marina, you
notice something a little different about
your boat, for it is now chained to the dock
and sports a red sticker on the front glass
- a notice from the United States
Marshal's office saying that your vessel
cannot be moved.
While you're taking in the information
written on the sticker, the dockmaster
approaches you with a copy of an arrest
warrant for your. boat, along with an
accompanying legal document called a
complaint. He will also probably advise
you that you are not allowed on the vessel
at that time.
Whether you like it or not, your vessel
has become a defendant in a civil action in
federal court in accordance with the court's
authority-to hear cases "in admiralty."
This type of action should not be
confused with your boat being taken into
custody for criminal or statutory viola-
tions by legal authorities, such as by the
Coast Guard or Customs, whose proce-
dures for execution and release would be
somewhat different.
Instead, in the present scenario, your
boat has been attached because some pri-
vate party is seeking monetary damages
for a particular circumstance that allows
your vessel to be arrested and detained.
In the end, this legal dilemma could
prove to be an even more time consuming
and/or expensive one than a case that
falls under -the Coast Guard or Customs
jurisdiction.
If your boat has been arrested, obvi-
ously decisions must be made concerning
what to do next. Self-serving as it may
sound, the dockmaster's suggestion of find-


ing a lawyer is a good first step. You might
also contact your insurance company.
Certainly, doing nothing would be
your worst course of action. Should you
fail to respond to the complaint issued
against your vessel, it is most likely that in
short order the federal court will put the
boat up for auction to be sold. And the new
purchaser will now have a clear title to
what was formally your vessel.
Once you've sought professional help,
your next step will be to figure out the
cause of your vessel's arrest and to seek
the most expedient way for getting it
released from custody.
Generally, if your boat has been arrest-
ed by order of the federal court, it is
because someone believes there's a legiti-
mate reason to attach the vessel for the pur-
pose of seeking monetary compensation.
Now is the time to review the com-
plaint carefully to see whether the opposing
party's demands are actually valid. Even if
the complaint is due to an incident which
occurred before you owned the boat, the
arrest may still prove to be legitimate.
A maritime lien follows the vessel, not
the owner, and does not have to be filed
with any authority until action is ready to
be taken.
Whether the arrest is valid or not, your
next concern is to discuss with your legal
professional strategies for having the boat
released. This should occur quickly due to
the custodial fees involved with keeping
her under arrest. The longer a boat remains
in custody, the more expensive a case
becomes.
If a case is without merit, your vessel
could be released with the filing of a
motion to the court to that effect. However
such instances are rare. More than likely,
the court will find some issues of dis-


Know the value

of a yacht broke]

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
They drive fancy sports cars and park in
reserved spaces that are designated for crew,
staff members and general managers. They
help themselves onto private shipyard and
marina property and hobnob unabashedly
with captains and employees. They prance
gingerly down private docks in bright skirts
and Tommy Bahama sport shirts pointing
assertively with long red fingernails and dan-
gling Rolexes at all of the floating fortresses.
All too often you can find them swarm-
ing fine restaurants and local watering holes,
toasting loudly and obnoxiously to the suc-
cessful realization of another dream come
true. And I vicariously ponder the question
- who needs them?
Of course, I'm talking about yacht own-
ers, yacht buyers and wannabes. And to
emphatically answer the question, I say we
all need them. Otherwise, we would all be
bludgeoned with the overwhelming child-
like furry that adults experience when they
catch "yacht fever."
For some, money has a way burning a
hole in our britches once we've made up our
minds and we absolutely must have a really
big yacht.... NOW! Others sound like they're
on the .edge but they just seem to go on
searching for years. "Prop kickers" babble
on forever about all of the silly and shallow-
minded ideas they have when it comes to
owning the perfect dream boat, yet never
quite muster up the courage to pull the trig-
ger and buy one.
They expend a. great deal of time and
money figuring others have nothing better to
do with their productive lives than to feed
their egos and answer an endless barrage of
questions about owning a yacht. Most yacht
brokers are experts at sifting through that
sort of hogwash and directing these folks to
a best-case scenario that will fit the owner's

budget and his commitment to the arena of
yachting.
Wide-eyed, bushy tailed gazillionaires
who think they're ready to buy a yacht can
seem downright giddy and, oh, so friendly
to work with going into a deal. But they
can turn out to be dangerous folks once the
road to reality clears and the hard cold
facts of yacht ownership begin to set in.
They can suddenly become very focused
and efficient at justifying ways to point a
finger when they realize they got more (or
less) than they thought they bargained for.
And if that happens, you'd better be ready
to take on their gaggle of experts while
defending your actions and statements.
Brokers have the experience and the
valuable understanding of the business of
yachting that can help to avoid that kind of
catastrophe. But they still do happen and
every good yacht broker will have a whale-
of-a-tale about the deal gone south.
Shipyards, marinas, boatyards and
other inexperienced waterfront personnel
should be very thankful that yacht brokers
abound in Fort Lauderdale. Their expertise
is invaluable to the industry and their abil-
ity to deal with customers a Godsend.
If we wore a broker's shoes for a day,
most of us would be surprised to note that
the grass isn't as green as we thought. We
would be sorely misleading ourselves if
we thought for a minute that we could
understand and negotiate "the art of the
deal." New owners would most likely find
themselves chasing their own tail (and
probably ours) trying to figure out a way
to justify an otherwise seriously misguid-
ed financial decision..
I recently heard the wife of a new
owner who chose to avoid a broker's advice
(and his fee) ask an employee "what those
smelly little bumpy things were on the bot-

Understanding the issues that could cause your boat to be arrested


putable facts worth reviewing, and will allow the litigation
to move forward. This generally means that some negotia-
tion with the opposing party will be necessary to secure the
freedom of the boat.
If you are fortunate and the amount in dispute is "rela-
tively small," early negotiations may lead to a settlement of
the entire case. Otherwise, you will have to post a bond with
the federal court to have the vessel released. Afterwards, the
bond will serve as a substitute for the boat in guaranteeing
that the costs of the dispute can be paid for.
Take note that if negotiations with the opposing side do
not go well, the cost of the bond could end up totaling the
equivalent or twice the amount of money disputed, or the
value of the vessel, whichever is smaller. This means that if
your boat is, in fact, ever actually arrested, having a good
insurance policy or ready cash will be a good thing.
Luckily for boat owners, since the initial up-front costs
of arresting a vessel is expensive, few potential plaintiffs will
initiate such an action unless their dispute has both merit and


is an amount worth their monetary investment in the case.
The best way to deal with such potential problems is to
manage and avoid those circumstances that could cause your
boat to get arrested at all, such as:
Check the background of a vessel thoroughly for any
possible maritime liens before you buy it. Although you may
not be able to find all possible liens, knowing where the boat
has been and who owned it can be an excellent indicator.
Pay your bills and should a bill be disputed, try to


settle it quickly and get your agreements in writing.
Keep a good insurance policy covering vessel arrest
and any potential bonds that might be required.
Know a good maritime attorney, and be willing to pay
for advice.

Marine market reflects need for yacht brokers

tom"? Ignorance and money are a volatile mixture.
The marine industry in South Florida benefits tremen-
dously from the presence of professional yacht brokers.
There are some in the industry who choose to complain for
one reason or another, and who come up short when com-
paring their own earning capacity to a broker. In my opinion,
they reek of shortsighted animosity. They should get over
their childish jealousies and view the ocean, not the waves.


Marine industry fights high insurance premiums


the coalition it would save $82,000 in premiums if it were
removed from the Longshoremen's Act's requirements.
U.S. Rep. Ric Keller of Orlando has been asked to be a
lead sponsor of what is being called the Recreational Marine
Employment Act, which would remove recreational boating
businesses from having to comply with the Longshoremen's
Act. It would allow those businesses to use state workers'
compensation, programs to protect workers if they are
injured on the job.
"Our committee has been working very hard to move

The fact is that more yachts are bought and sold in Fort
Lauderdale than anywhere else in the world. From that truth
comes a colossal demand for surveys, repairs, maintenance,
refits, provisioning, dockage, crewmembers and so on.
There is plenty of room for all, and no one group or facility
is an island unto itself. Mutual respect is the key phrase that
we all need to implement in our daily endeavors.

Nautical festival to fill the


Popular Plywood Regatta finds
a new home at Waterfest
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Fort Lauderdale's annual spring.boat show may be on
hiatus, but one of the event's most popular draw's, the ply-
wood regatta, will sail on..
The regatta, where teams race hand-built vessels, will be
part of Waterfest, a new outdoor festival taking place June 1
and 2 at the International GNne Fish Association Hall of
Fame Museum-BassPro Shops complex, at 300 Gulfstreamn
Way in Dania Beach.
"The regatta was a mainstay of the spring boat shock "
said Dan Vawter, membership development coordinator for
the Marine Industries Association of South Florida, which
sponsored the boat show and is putting together Waterfest.
The spring show, also known as Boats in the Park, was
canceled due to a changing marine marketplace, declining
attendance and competition from other boat shows in the area.
The show was held at Bahia Mar Resort and Marina on
Fort Lauderdale beach for 15 years. It was moved last May
to George English Park, overlooking the Middle River in Fort
Lauderdale.
Organizers at the marine industries association had
thought about re-locating the plywood regatta, now entering
its sixth year, to the Volvo Around the World Race village in
downtown Miami. But the idea was nixed because they want-

Waterfest will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.
Admission is free.
"We think it's a perfect backdrop," Vawter said of the
IGFA-BassPro Shops complex location. "They have every-
thing we could possibly want there."
Don Watts, chief executive officer of IGFA, said the
museum is very excited about the upcoming festival.
"We think it's a tremendous opportunity to share our
facility with the community," Watts said.
Waterfest will serve as a filler for the spring boat show,
which the association intends to eventually bring back. But
Waterfest will be kept as a separate annual event, Vawter said.
The premise behind the festival is to educate and enter-
tain the public. "It will put a spotlight South Florida's recre-
ational marine industry," Vawter said. "The boat shows are
great because it allows the dealers, brokers and vendors to
display their goods to potential customers. But our goal with
Waterfest is to introduce the public to all aspects of the
marine industry, not just boating."
The festival will be divided into separate villages area

'Ms. Waterfront' takes on southwest Lauderdale's boating issues


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
A plaque on the wall in Joanne Becker's Fort
Lauderdale home office refers to the busy woman as "Ms.
Waterfront."
While the honor may have been bestowed in jest, there
are a few local politicians and marine industry leaders who
agree that Becker deserves the title for her many years
championing marine causes.
"I can't believe all these years have passed since I first
started, and maybe I am getting tired and it's time to think
about retiring from it all," said Becker.
But her husband, Frank, says he'll believe his wife the
day she's rocking on the porch with nothing to do but enjoy
their scenic Mexican-style home located in Riverside Park
along the New River.
Becker has waged numerous battles to protect the rights
of waterfront property owners and boaters, and water quali-
ty improvement.
She grew up visiting the area in the 1940s with her par-
ents, who divided their time between Florida and New Jersey.
"When Frank and I married, he wanted to move to

California, but we didn't have the money then to do that so
I suggested we head to Florida because I had been visiting it
for so many years."
The two moved to. Hollywood where Frank Becker
began working in the marine industry as a mechanic and
boat yard supervisor, while Joanne Becker worked in a doc-
tor's office. The couple has two children.
After Frank Becker decided to start his own yacht main-
tenance business in 1975 Frank Becker Management -
Joanne became his bookkeeper and assistant, a job she con-
tinues 27 years later.
"When we began the business, it was a smaller boating
industry and everybody knew everybody else," Becker said.
The business services powerboats from 25 to 75 feet in length.
Becker became a civic activist about 20 years ago when
the city of Fort Lauderdale tried to ban dock rentals by
waterfront property owners. It wanted only boats that
belonged to the homeowner to be tied up on the property.

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

Volvo entries decrease through the years


Published estimates say it costs about $12 million per boat to
be in the Volvo.
"I think it's more expensive now because it's become
more and more professional," he said. "It's because the teams
prepare themselves in a better way, a very extensive way,
with three years of training...
"Next time, we have to look at how the cost can be made
lower. We don't want to get back to 30 boats. I would say if
we can have 12, that would be right."
Illbruck Challenge, sponsored by a German construction
industry, bought two identical boats from the last Whitbread
and spent two years testing them, comparing sails to deter-
mine the best combination. Other than spinnakers, sails are
made of expensive Kevlar and cost about $100,000 each.
Each boat costs about $1.75 million to build. Each is allowed
38 sails in all, 17 on board at a time.
One way to cut costs would be to reduce the number of
sails allowed, Alten said. Another would be to restrict vessels
to a single design and size. They are similar now, but allow-
able differences make it possible to spend lots of extra money
if it can be raised.
For all its extravagance, Illbruck needed big-spend-
ing co-sponsors to fulfill chairman Michael Illbruck's
wish to compete in the America's Cup Challenge as well.
He had to drop out of it, blowing off about $1.5 million;
already invested.
Dennis Conner, whose name is synonymous with the,
America's Cup, was an early entry in the Volvo, but that's as'
far as he went. Alten said Conner told him he couldn't raise
enough money for both races, so he dropped the Volvo. -.
Why did Volvo drop Fort Lauderdale, the Florida
stopover for the last Whitbread? Alten said he. wasn't
involved in the decision himself, but he was there foir,
years ago, at Port Everglades. He thought it slightly
unsightly:
"Where they wanted to put the boats, it wasn't deep
enough. They need 3.75 meters, or 12 feet. They had to put
them in a cargo container area. It wasn't a very nice environ-
ment, because all around us were just containers."
The Miami site sits right across the Intracoastal

Waterway, with a splendid view of the Port of Miami and its
gleaming cruise ships. McDonald, who obtained use of the
site from the Miami Heat, said it needs access improvements
- but all in all it worked out nicely.
There were glitches, of course. One of McDonald's
favorites concerns a tractoi-trailer delivered to Tyco
International, the telecommunications company that spon-
sors one of the racing boats.
"Tyco had .some kind of exhibit in the 18-wheeler,"
McDonald says. "They backed it down the main ramp and
parked it, and then they realized the truck wasn't a Volvo
truck. It was Volvo's number one competitor. Nobody had
thought of that. To make it worse, the president of Volvo
Trucks was coming in soon with a bunch of executives."
Think that's funny? If you're a Volvo big shot you don't
laugh. The solution was to unhitch the trailer and drive the
non-Volvo tractor someplace else.
"Imagine these kinds of things multiplied by 100',
McDonald said. "But it was a good event. We were pleased.
Altogether, we're really happy about it."

Plywood Regatta to feature new yacht club category


There will also be a village set up for exhibitors. "We are
inviting a few select vendors to come out and show their
wares," Vawter said.
The area will feature airboats, personal watercraft, kayaks
and racing boats.featuring the Budweiser Racing Team.
"We want to introduce people to all different types of
boats," he said. "There are many ways for people to get
out on the water and there are many different crafts in all
price ranges."
Organizers have Set aside space for the plywood regatta
too. The race will be held on the man-made pond in front of
the hall of fame museum.
The regatta will have different class divisions including
one for middle and high school students. Another division is
for vocational and technical schools, and there will be a pro-
fessional class for local marine businesses that build boats,
Vawter said. .' '
For the first time in the competition's history, there will
also be a class open to yacht clubs. Groups are now being
recruited, Vawter said.
The general public is welcome to enter. Teams must
have four to eight members.


Registration is $350 per team with the cost covering
materials needed to build a boat. Proceeds go to marine sci-
ence magnet programs at South Broward High School in
Hollywood and New River Middle School in Fort
Lauderdale, Vawter said.
The regatta requires teams to design and build the boats
themselves. The catch is that the boats must be started and
finished at the event.
Each team will get materials including plywood, wire
and caulk. The boat building will take place on June 1.
Decorating the vessels and racing will be held on June 2.
"We have had many different types of boats," Vawter
said. "Pontoons, an outrigger and canoes. We've seen a lot of
ingenious designs."
Prizes will be given to the first, second and third place
vessels that cross the finish line in each class. The winning
boats from each division will then compete against each'
other for the plywood regatta cup.
"It seems the main key to having the fastest boat has
been a long water line," Vawter said.
Prizes will also be awarded to best decorated boat, most
spirited team and most innovative design.
Towels, referred to as the Yacht Brokers Award, will be
given to the crew of the boat that sinks first. A bucket, called


the Bail Out Award; goes to the team that spends the most
time getting water out of the hull, Vawter said.
About 35 teams are expected to sign up for this year's
race. Last year's spring boat show at George English Park
drew 20 teams. Organizers attribute the increase to having
more space at the hall of fame museum, Vawter said.
Jim Genet, foreman of the fiberglass department at
Destiny Yachts in Fort Lauderdale, has been participating in
the regatta since its second year.
For the last three years, his team has won awards in the
professional class for most innovative design.
"The regatta is a fun day for the whole family," said
Genet, whose team built a Hawaiian outrigger canoe at the
2001 regatta.
The event has a serious side too. "People are very com-
petitive once they are out on the water," Genet said.
Genet won't reveal the design planned for this year's
regatta. He and his team build prototypes beforehand. :
"This way we know how to build it once the day of the
event arrives," he said. .
The team is intent on racking up another win for design,
as well as taking home a trophy for speed.

Waterfront activist reflects on city's changing attitude toward boaters


"It was a long struggle and I learned a
lot when I became involved in all the politi-
cal aspects of it," Becker said.
To develop a power base to take on city
hall, she won the support of marinas, the
marine industry, and dock owners who
wanted to be able to use such space.
Now, city regulations permit proper
dock storage of boats, although it is under
tight regulation and its future dependent on
dock owners making sure no abuse of the
system affects a neighborhood environment.
Becker recalls one meeting when she
had all her supporters almost 1,000 peo-
ple wearing red hats to show their num-
bers. It was one of the largest crowd to
appear at a regulation hearing.
Becker realized that the effort also
was a stepping-stone in getting political
leaders to realize the value of the boating
industry and the waterways that dominate
Fort Lauderdale.
"Twenty years ago, leaders thought
people came here to look at the water and


I REKER ROM 11


didn't want boats blocking the view,"
Becker said. "But as time went on, people
were coming here by boat and wanting to be
involved in boating and the city had to
change its focus and recognize the value of
the marine industry."
Becker credits many marine leaders as
helping to lead the way to change the atti-
tude of city hall, which today she says
reflects a more positive look at boating.
In 1985 she helped organize the
Waterfront Property Owners Association. It
was first open to anyone in the North Fork of
the New River area around Riverside Park.
But today the group invites any waterfront
property owner in Broward County, or even
around the state, to join.
With Becker as president, the associa-
tion has served as a watchdog over legisla-
tion and regulations that impact on water-
front homes and businesses, taking on issues
such as wake and speed along waterways,
and pollution.
In January, the city dredged the North
Fork of the New River in what Becker calls
a "record time" of 30 days. The dredging,


which took eight years to get funding and
support for, was vital to keeping the water-
way navigable for larger boats.
The WPOA also has championed efforts
to examine causes of pollution of waterways.
"So often it's easy to blame such mat-
ters on discharges from boats," said Becker.
"But that is not always the case."
Last year, Becker sat on a city-created
blue ribbon committee on pollution issues
on the North Fork when it was discovered
that the main source of elevated E coil in
some "hot spots" along the river was coming
from soil banks due to periodic wet and dry-
ing periods. The finding has helped to ques-
tion the whole sewage indicator system
based on E coil and the need to replace it
with a new monitoring program..
Plans are being made for Fort
Lauderdale to host in the near future a world
conference on recreational water quality and
Becker will play a key role in planning such
a national event.
"There are times when I want to slow
down and say I've done enough," Becker
said, recalling how her time spent on causes

Becker recalls one
meeting when she had
all her supporters
almost 1,000 people
wearing red hats to
show their numbers.

even once threatened the stability of her
marriage because it was taking time away
from her personal life.
"But I've enjoyed seeing some changes
being made and a better respect today for the
marine industry and the value of recreation-
*al waterways in this community," she said.
Becker still enjoys the challenges, but
also wants to spend more time for herself.
She loves her Mexican-style home on a spa-
cious and lushly landscaped three acres,
which was an "eyesore" back in 1978 when
the couple bought it. The mini-estate is
named "Escondido," meaning little hidden
place, because it is exactly that and is a.sur-
prise to any visitor.
