plans to address

canal end

berthing problems
Some waterfront property
owners endure tight squeeze
when docking vessels
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront "'e-" Writer
Fort Lauderdale City Commissioners will discuss .a
proposed ordinance aimed at property owners whose
berthing envelopes sit at the end of canals.
The ruling specifically addresses the unique circum-
stances facing triangular berthing envelopes that are
formed at the cul-de-sac portion of the canal, and setting
procedures for placing vessels there.
For other lot owners on the waterway, the problem
doesn't exist because their banks or seawalls are parallel
or almost parallel. But those located at the ends of the
canals can face diminished envelopes that make it impos-
sible to berth a vessel of any reasonable size, according to
city officials.
An. example cited by city officials is a property that
they viewed with 35 lineal feet of water frontage. Because
of the angles formed by the property lines and 10-foot side
yard setbacks, there remains only 10 feet along the sea-
wall and eight feet perpendicular to the seawall to berth a
vessel.
The proposed ordinance allows owners located on
Scandal ends to request a hearing for a variance to move the
property setback requirements, permitting more room to
dock their boats.

July, no date had been set for a tentative hearing before
City Commissioners on the proposed ordinance.
"It recognizes the difficulties that face the property
owner at the canal ends and establishes a procedure,
whereby they can utilize' their water frontage to keep a
boat at their property," said Bernard Gartner, vice chair-
man of the marine advisory board.
The board has been aware of this issue for quite a
while, he said.
"There was a universal feeling amongst the members
of the board that there is a problem with these pie-shaped
lots and we requested that city staff make recommenda-
tions to resolve the issue," he said.

Year-oldweb site caters to growing number of women boaters


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer'
With increasing numbers of women entering recre-
ational boating and water-related sports, BoatU.S. has
launched a new web site with a female-only slant.
The Women in Boating site actually debuted last year,
but was recently revamped and reintroduced this spring
with more links and information, said Elaine Dickinson,
managing editor of BoatU.S. Magazine.
Web surfers logging on to www.BoatUS.com/women
will find plenty of resources at their fingertips.
BoatU.S., which bills itself as the world's largest
organization of boat owners, has been looking for ways to
encourage women to get involved in boating and feel part
of the boating community, Dickinson said.
"We have been sponsoring women's only events such'
as races, conventions and seminars," she said. "The web
site seemed to be the next natural step."
Current figures show that the site attracts about 1,000
hits per day, she said.
Features on the site include interactive opinion sur-
veys, articles and a discussion forum. There's also an
online store that stocks items for women such as foul
weather suits and gloves.
The store has proven to be the most popular feature.
Browsers especially like that the clothing comes in female

sizes, Dickinson said.
"It used to be that if you wanted foul weather gear,
you would buy a men's size small and hope it fit," she
said.
Betty Bauman, founder of Ladies Let's Go Fishing, said
her group applauds the efforts of BoatU.S. to provide women
with information on events, products and organizations.
Bauman's Fort Lauderdale-based organization provides
hands-on seminars statewide and in Hawaii for women to
learn fishing and boating skills. A link to Ladies Let's Go
Fishing can be found on the BoatU.S. women's site.
Ladies Let's Go Fishing has'gotten requests for infor-
mation from the BoatU.S. web site, she said.


"Women have different needs when it comes to boat-
ing and fishing than men do," Bauman said. "I like that
there is a centralized source of information for women. It
saves them the time it would take to search the Internet.
It's nice to go to one source and find the links."
Other links found on the BoatU.S. women's web site
include the Offshore Sailing School and the National
Women's Sailing Association, both based in Fort Myers.
Doris Colgate, CEO of the Offshore Sailing School
and founder of the National Women's Sailing Association,
said BoatU.S. is providing a nice service.
The Offshore Sailing School, for instance, has a spe-
cial women's only course that we conduct every May on
Captiva Island. There are also women's classes held year-
round at the school's other locations in Florida, New
England, Chicago and the British Virgin Islands, she said.
"I think it's a great site," said Colgate, who sits on the
Boat US national advisory board. "Women do like to have
places they can go to find out about events and clothing."

Bridling can minimize damage to live bait, improve presentation


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
How do you rig live bait? Through the nose?
No, that's how you pay for it.
If you're impatient, you probably grip your baitfish
tightly, stick your hook through its lips or the fleshy part
of its back, toss it overboard and wait for a strike.
If you don't get one, you reel in, move a mile and
dunk the bait again. Maybe you notice that the hook has
worn a big ol' hole in that bait fish, but it's still twitching
so you keep it in play.
Skunked, you stop on your way home at a fishmon-
ger's with display cases full of glistening fish that look
like they just swam in. There are a few shopworn speci-
mens with holes in their mouths and backs but you
wouldn't buy those, would you?
Neither would the sailfish, kings or whatever sent you
slinking back to the docks with an empty box.
Now that we're thinking like fish (our customers;
they're always right), let's consider bridling sometimes
called collaring or harnessing as an effective way to
present live bait.
A bridle's purposes are to minimize damage to the
bait, thus making it last longer, and to make the most nat-
ural presentation possible.
You can buy or copy commercially ready-niade bri-
dles. Some resemble the harness works that connect a
team of draft horses to a beer wagon. Another kind, cur-
rently promoted for freshwater use, look like a tweezer,
with both ends hooked and barbed.
You're supposed to put a minnow in the middle and
tighten a plastic slide to pinch it securely. When the min-
now hollers "ouch!" game fish investigate and get hooked
while attempting to rescue it. Or something like that.
Let's leave the elaborate and the radical to others and
focus on what we know works: A simple bridle made of a
tiny rubber band, a loop of Dacron fishing line or dental
floss.
You can set it up in less than a minute half a minute
if you practice much. And you should practice, because
the bait is squirming in your hand as you rig, and the less
it does that. the better. For a practice dummy. use a soft
plastic squid or balao.

UFiin'


The best part of the rig is that the bridle itself is all.
that penetrates the flesh of the bait. The hook, snubbed up
against the bait's body, is fully exposed, swimming freely.
The Waterfront News learned the technique by
observing professional fishing mates Mike Spivey of
Rudy Polselli, Jr.'s tournament boat, Rude Awakening,
based at Sailfish Marina on Singer Island (listed at
www.inthebite.com) and Alex Castellanos and Robbie
Ramirez, who work on Capt. Ray Rosher's Miami char-
ter boat, Miss Britt (http://floridafishingtrips.com/).

Spivey uses the more labor-intensive Dacron loop. He
cuts and knots a bundle: of them in advance, so a day's
supply is always ready to use. You can do the same thing
with dental floss. Trim the ends closely.
Castellanos and Ramirez use #8 rubber bands, which
can be bought by the box or baggie in tackle shops that
cater to offshore fishermen.
Which is best for you? Try any or all, but it's a good
bet you'll settle on the rubber band. That's the standard on
Miss Britt, and the method demonstrated here by
Castellanos with a small pilchard
Rosher, who has made a sub-specialty of the capture,

Fishing pros rely on favorite bridling methods to get the job done

I--| I ? W Photos by Arnold Markowitz


1) Use a short rigging needle with a hook, not an eye, and a
#8 rubber band.
2) With a wet hand, hold the baitfish just firmly enough to
keep it still. Don't press the gills. Don't rub.
3) Insert the needle behind and above the eye, about
halfway between head and dorsal fin. Avoid the spine.
4) Draw the needle through the bait with the rubber band
held in the hooked end.
5) With your fishhook already tied to the leader (with a
loop knot), loop the rubber band over the hook's point.
6) Pull the band through until the bend of the hook snubs
against the baitfish's body.
7) Stretch and twist the rubber band to make a snug fit by
pulling and turning the needle between your thumb and
forefinger. For a small pilchard, make 9 or 10 twists.
8) Bring the needle's end of the rubber band over the bait's
back. Loop the band over the hook point. Remove the
needle.
9) The finished rig, seen head-on. For demonstration
purposes, the leader is pulled taut here, raising the hook. In
action, the bend of the hook fits snugly against the bait's
back. To keep the bait lively, avoid casting. Instead, drop it in
the water and move the boat away slowly as you let out line.


l:M1I11I OlNl' i'J[lll /;1A lf

care, handling and deployment of live bait, prefers rubber
for its elasticity.
"I've tried floss and I've tried Dacron and I settled on
this," he says. "It's fast and it keeps the hook snubbed up
tight against the body of the bait. If it's loose, the hook
moves around and it's likely to turn back into the body."
A couple of exceptions bear mention: Capt. Bouncer
Smith tells us to lip-rig the bait if we're fishing for dol-
phin. And Bryan Gunderson, mate on the private yacht, J
Hook, disdains bridling of any kind. Pro though he is, he
rigs up the same way most amateurs do it:
"We hook 'em straight through the back. We've lost


Uahnn-


more fish using harnesses."
But Gunderson has to satisfy only one customer, most
charter pros would reply. They need to catch fish consis-
tently to keep up their reputations. Harnessing the bait,
they're certain, gives them a natural-looking presentation,
more strikes per hour, more catches per strike.
Sometimes, in those rare perfect moments when fam-
ished fish surround you like pelicans at the filleting table,
it doesn't matter. Stick a hook in the bait, flip it over the
side and be ready to boogie.

By MARK ERCOLIN -_,- .
waterfront News Columnist
Let's say you decide to enter into a
contract for some form of maritime-relat-
ed service or product, such as boat
repairs, salvage, or even insurance. You
confidently sign the agreement, figuring
that if anything should go wrong you can
always demand your day in court.
But did.you fully read the contract to
see if that's true? Many agreements, par-
ticularly in the maritime industry, contain
arbitration clauses.
Basically, an arbitration clause in a
contract creates a covenant in which the
parties essentially agree to allow a single
person, or a panel of people, to settle a
dispute or an issue in the contract, rather
than taking such disputes before the
courts.
The reasoning behind arbitration
clauses seems logical. In theory,, arbitra-
tion is less expensive and more efficient
than taking a matter through the full liti-
gation process.
Roughly described, it works like
this:
By what is supposed to be mutual
consent between the parties, an arbitrator
or a panel of arbitrators is selected from
among people who are believed to be
familiar with the types of issues involved
in the contractual dispute (not necessari-
ly lawyers), and brought in to review the
case.
The arbitrators are not generally
restricted by judicial procedure or the
rules of evidence, which is supposed to
streamline the process towards final reso-
lution.
Arbitrators are generally, not
required to explain any legal reasoning
pursuant to their final rulings, which are
enforceable and usually not subject to
appeal by the courts. Also, unless other-


ily

wise stipulated in the original contract,
the fees for arbitration are usually shared
between the parties.
Until the 1920s, U.S. courts did not
generally recognize the enforceability of
arbitration clauses in contracts. It was
considered against the public policy of
"allowing every party their day in court."
However, with the advance of the
"progressive movement" and a fear that
20th century courts might be inundated
with more cases than desirable, Congress
passed the Federal Arbitration Act,
which allowed for the use of arbitration
clauses in contracts dealing with inter-
state commerce and maritime matters.
This policy eventually progressed to
other contractual matters. Today, for the
most part, both federal and state courts
tend to recognize the validity of most
well-drafted arbitration clauses.
So, if you are dealing in a matter of
contract and it contains an arbitration
Clause, you'll have to take the responsi-
bility of making the decision as to
whether or not you are willing to accept
arbitration as the way to settle a dispute.
As I pointed out earlier, many see
arbitration as having numerous advan-
tages over the usual judicial format.
There are times when it does prove to be
a faster and less expensive way for
resolving-a-dispute than might be offered
by conventional litigation.
On the other hand, what is lost to a
party that chooses arbitration over the
courts must also be considered, includ-
ing:
*The possible loss of a permanent
record for the proceedings, which means
the case will have no precedent for future
similar matters.
*The loss of the protection afforded

Tryin' to reason

with hurricane seas<

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
I remember the Friday before
Hurricane Andrew struck South Florida
back in 1992. I was sitting on the fifth floor
of Burger King's world headquarters in
Miami, finishing a meeting with our
finance director and explaining to a group
of folks from the Midwest about the nature
of what lurked just beyond the visibly tran-
quil horizon.
The sky was clear and the seas were
calm that afternoon as we gazed out over
the tropical expanse of Biscayne Bay. The
demon hadn't made its sickening turn to
the west as of yet, and we all made light of
what would soon become a natural disas-
ter. In less than 48 hours, the huge marble
conference table I was sitting at would be
one of the only reminders left behind of the
way things used to be.
By Saturday morning the bad news
had gotten worse and it appeared that I was
in the path of what looked like an immi-
nent strike on the Dade-Broward line.
We charged into a frantic mode of
gathering valuables and making final
preparations for the coming night. As
things got nasty, we thought that Fort
Lauderdale was receiving the brunt of the
storm. We watched from the second floor
as blue lights flashed on the horizon.
Transformers were 'blowing out in the
darkness, and the wind and water raged.
The following morning was surreal as
T.V. news helicopters reported on the dam-
age from above. Live video feeds pumped
images of devastation into our living
rooms. It quickly became evident that a
catastrophe had occurred and we wondered
how anyone could have survived.
I watched with disbelief as a news
helicopter hovered next to what was left of
the Burger King facility. I could see the
office where I sat in that meeting only 48


hours before. What had previously been
touted as one of the most exquisite office
facilities in Miami-Dade if not the coun-
try had been reduced to rubble in a mat-
ter of hours.
It seemed unthinkable that it had
happened so quickly and without any
substantial warning. The news stations
sounded their horns and evacuations
begrudgingly took place. But nobody had
imagined that anything like this would
happen.
And so it goes with the weather here
in the tropics. We hear about threats fre-
quently and are lulled into complacency
with near-misses and over-dramatiza-
tions. Storms fizzle out or turn away at
the last minute and leave us panting with
a weird sense of disappointment.
As time passes, we begin to let our
guard down. A foolish little voice in the
back of our minds whispers that we are
getting all worked up for nothing and that
the "big one" may never come to our
shores. But then without compassion, it
does... and all hell's furry breaks loose.
In 1992 Ispent weeks in Miami cart-
ing as much ice, water and food as I
could cram into my old Chevy pickup to
the bewildered folks in South Dade who
endured Hurricane Andrew. I recall the
dozens of people who told me repeatedly
how they could not find words to
describe the initeiisity and the magnitude
of what had happened. They asked ques-
tions like, "why me, why here, why
now?" Many lives and attitudes were
changed forever.
The question is not "if' a big hurri-
cane will set its sights on South Florida.
The only question is "when?" It could be
this week, or it could be 20 years from
now. But the day will come and we will

Consider possible losses before agreeing to arbitration clause


by the rules of evidence, which means facts and issues that
would otherwise be left out of the proceedings might now
be used to help make a determination as to fault and final
award. Depending on the situation, this can either be very
good or very bad.
*The loss of a record concerning a legal basis for an
arbitrator's decision, which means the ability for a party to
seek an appeal for a decision is usually negligible.
*Also, depending on the arbitration clause, your
choice of arbitrators may be from a pool of experts whom
you would prefer not be part of the case. Their fees and
costs might also prove more expensive than anticipated.
S*Finally, depending on the wording of the clause,


arbitration could be set in a venue (even a foreign country)
which could make the costs of arbitration even more
expensive than the costs of a conventional court case.

Before signing
When it comes to dealing with the issue of arbitration
clauses, I suggest the following:
Read all contracts carefully before you sign
them! for any arbitration clauses.
If there are any, see if they apply to particular issues in
the contract, or if the clause pertains to the contract generally.
See if any arbitration clause requires any specific
pool of arbitrators, and whether the arbitration is to be
governed by any particular set of rules and fees.
See if any arbitration clause requires a particular


"unusual" venue for arbitration. You may find these most
commonly in certain insurance contracts, so, be vigilant!
As I said before, if there is an arbitration clause in a con-
tract you are considering putting your name on, you will
have decide whether you are willing to accept its provisions.
Remember, before you sign them, contracts can usu-
ally be renegotiated. You might even consider paying for
professional legal advice in this area.
In any event, if you do accept the terms, make sure
you didn't do it arbitrarily.

have to deal with it.
Waterfront businesses and residents carry the added
burden of the economic and physical hazards associated
with a powerful hurricane. We won't be able to slow the
winds or to change its course, but we can make the effort
now to have plans that will prove very valuable when the
time comes. Think about these issues (just for starters):
*Have you come to the realization that your business
will suffer in the wake of a big storm? If not, then be
advised... it will! If you and your staff are able to make
repairs and clean up the mess, well that's great. But
remember that your suppliers, your customers and your
established methods of operation may not be so easily
restored. Count on at least three to six months before your
business will begin to stabilize. After Andrew, many busi-
nesses did not open their doors-for well over a year.
*If your business is down for several months, how will
you continue to make payroll? Will you pay your employ-
ees, or will they have no income while the business is try-
ing to get re-established?
Cash is hard to come by when everything is in sham-
bles, but you and your employees will depend on the con-

tinuance of funds. Challenge your insurance agent. See if
your business interruption policy calls for timely and
dependable cash payouts that will sustain your payroll.
Make specific plans to determine how and where those
funds will be made available.
Do you have plans to secure personal and business
records? A safe deposit box at the bank is your best bet.
Make arrangements for one now, before the panic starts.
Then simply copy files onto a disk, gather original docu-
ments and lock them up when it becomes evident that a
storm is headed our way.
Where will you secure your vessel? Will there be
ample space at the marina you choose? Most facilities
take reservations (with a deposit) prior to hurricane season
and long before any storm threatens. That way captains
know they have a spot when things get hectic. If you've
ever gone through the madness of trying to make last
minute arrangements for dockage, you'll know the benefit
of having it resolved ahead of time.
S* Will you stay or will you go? Don't be a fool. If you
are on the waterfront and the authorities tell you to get
packing, do yourself a favor and get out. If you are think-
ing about staying aboard your vessel, don't! Everyone I
spoke with after Andrew vowed that they would never try

to ride out another one. Once the wind and water starts to
rise, it will be too late to change your mind.
A strong hurricane is not fun or exciting. It is sheer
terror and devastation. We should all take steps today so
that we might be adequately prepared for when one sets its
sights on our shores.
Those who do will be a lot better prepared to deal
with challenges and chaos both during and after the storm.

Weston artist sees 'ey allure in moAUGUST 2002


Weston artist sees 'eye-catching' allure in mounted fish


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Sal Falcone likes to say that fish are his canvass. |
The Weston-based artist has been reeling in
recognition for hand painting the mounted crea-
tures with colorful designs. His pieces, which sell
from $500 to $1,500, are displayed in galleries
and interior design showrooms throughout
Florida.
Falcone believes his works sell because
they're very eye-catching. Since they're so unusual.
even those who normally wouldn't hang a mounted fish in
their homes enjoy the pieces, he said.
Ellie Miner, director of the Palm Beach Collector at the
DCOTA Design Center in Dania Beach, has two of
Falcone's works on display at the gallery and is expecting
two more to be delivered soon.
"They're very well done," Miner said.'"They have a
Picasso look to them. People who love the ocean and the sea
views like to have pieces of art that are aquatic. It really fits
into many homes."
It takes Falcone two weeks to decorate each fish with
acrylic paint and a special glaze coating that gives the piece
a high gloss. He usually does about 12 works a year. No two
are alike. Each is signed, numbered and has the artist's
thumbprint, he said.
Falcone got the idea to use fish 10 years ago when he
saw an eight-foot mounted marlin sticking out of a woman's


garbage can.
"She was either thro-\ ine her husband out or redecorat-
ing," he said. "I threw nt in the back of mi SUV and ran."
Realizing his wife wouldn't let him hang the fish in the.
house, he got the idea to paint it with an array of designs.
"I've always been in love with Haitian and Floribbean
art," he said. "I wanted to do something appealing. It was a
brainstorm."
Soon, visitors to his home wanted to know where they
could purchase similar pieces, and his business was born.
In the beginning, Falcone would go to art shows and
flea markets or put ads in newspapers to buy mounted fish.
Today, a taxidermist makes mounted fish from fiber-
glass molds to his specifications. Falcone refuses to use any
fish or fish parts.
"I am a fisherman and I respect wildlife," he said. "I

don't want to have fish that were harmed to make these
molds."
The fiberglass fish he paints must be hollowed out
and mounted flesh against the wall, he said.
"It makes for a better appearance and easier ship-
ping," said Falcone, who has sold some 30 fish includ-
ing marlins, tarpons, snook, barracudas and sailfish.
The works have had been shipped all over the
country to such states as North Carolina and Oregon and
to Japan, he said.
Although Falcone enjoys what he does, he only paints
part-unie. His full-time job is as director of Italian and
Mediterranean sales for the Henry Lee Company, a division
of Smart'and Final.
"I don't consider myself an artist," he said. "I'm hum-
bled by that word."
An avid fisherman and boater who was bor and raised
in South Florida, Falcone considers his art an outgrowth of
his love for the two hobbies.
"I've been fishing all my life," he said. Falcone, who
will custom design fish with colors to match the interior of
a client's home, office or boat, said he intends to soon start
doing similar designs on other mounted animals.
"My work has been strictly fish, but I intend to branch
out to alligators and iguanas," he said.

I RU T-NEW


Boat-only refuge on the ICW shows off native Florida


This is one in a series of special features looking at
landmarks and locations along Broward County's
waterways.
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
DEERFIELD BEACH -- A 56-acre island wilIdemes-i.-
with lush tropical vegetation, rare animal life and wandenng
trails, is a popular stopping point for boaters looking for a
unique environmental experience.
"I guess we're kind of like a best kept secret," said ShirleN
Teier, naturalist for the Broward County Park and Recreation
Division and manager of Deerfield Island Park. "But once
people come here and see what we have, they tell their friends
and that's the way we seem to be growing in popularity "
Unlike any other park in the Broward system. Deerfield
Island can only be reached by boat. Private boaters can go
there any day of the week, while public access via an hourly
daytime shuttle from the mainland runs only on Wednesday
and Sunday.
The triangle-shaped park is located right in the middle
of where the Intracostal and Hillsboro Canal come together
across from Sullivan Park on Riverview Road.
Back in the early 1800s, the park was part of a peninsu-
la bordered by the Hillsboro and Spanish rivers. When the
Everglades were drained in the early 1900s and the
Hillsboro Canal was created, noted mobster Al Capone tried
to buy the peninsula, but his offer was rejected.
Deerfield Island was created in 1961. Four years later,
the state designated it as a park and then made it a bird and
wildlife sanctuary in the 1970s before Broward-County
parks created a passive park in 1980.
"We're a one of kind place in the parks system,"
explained Teier, who said she's always excited to see visitors
spot rare birds, wildlife, insects and plants along the two
main trails.


Photo/WILLIAM HAWKINS
Naturalist Shirley Teier points out some of the special
sights at Deerfield Island Park.
The Coquina and Mangrove trails are two separate
walking areas that can take 45 minutes to more than an hour
to walk depending on how closely a visitors wants to
inspect the vegetation and animal life along the way. In both
cases, the trails offer visitors a rare chance to see plant and
animal life in a natural setting.
"Our goal over these years has been to preserve what we
have and to protect it," said Teier.
She joked that the park's two maintenance staffers
spend considerable time keeping the trails from being swal-
lowed up by fast-growing trees and vegetation. "We're
always cutting some of it back or removing the evasive trees
like the Brazilian pepper and Australian pine so native trees
can grow."
And she's happy that interest in the park is growing and
attracting more than 10,000 people a year. "The more appre-


* Wet S


canon we ha\e of the natural beauty and significance of
\ hat the park in preserving helps to educate people."
The Coquina Trail, which runs alongside the eastern
end-of the-sland as it borders the Intracostal features sights
like the whitee Stopper shrub, its drip-tip leaves producing a
liquid used medicinally to treat dysentery. A rare spotted
skunk. \ which usually appears only a night, might pass by
and head tow ard sea grape vines for a snack.
The island also is one of the few places in the state to
find the gopher tortoise, which likes the easy sandy digging
so it can create large underground burrows. The species is on
the nation's "threatened" list of endangered animals since its
natural habitats are disappearing'due to land development.
A popular spot for migrating birds, more than 35 differ-
ent bird species have been spotted in the trees. Volunteer
Gloria Cashin of Hillsboro spends time keeping track of the
fowl and help bird watchers spot some of the rarer ones.
A popular sight along the Mangrove Trail, is a wild cof-
fee plant with its red berries, and the red and white man-
grove trees, their tangled root systems vital to helping create
a nursery grounds for young fish.
While the park encourages visitors to walk trails on
their own, Teier can arrange narrated tours of the island and
a floating tour of the Intracostal area.
Teier said the island has become a living classroom to
thousands of young students who visit it as part of educa-
tional field trips. Boy and Girl Scout troops camp out on the
island so youngsters can earn their nature badges.
The park also is available for private parties and pic-
nics. For more information call 954-360-1320. Shuttles
from the mainland marina run hourly from 10 a.m. to 3
p.m. on Sunday and until noon on Wednesday.

Time will tell if new reef will benefit Upper Keys economy


By BRYAN BROOKS
Special to the Waterfront News
Whether or not the Spiegel Grove will jumpstart the
Upper Keys economy, hit hard by the events of Sept. 11,
won't be really visible until fall, say dive shop owners.
Joe Dowda, owner of Horizon Divers in Key Largo, said
since it's summer, now most boats go out full of paying cus-
tomers anyway.
It's the lean days of autumn that will best measure the
reef's economic success, he says.
But certain advantages have become known already. For
divers, it's now easier to find a spot on other coral reefs, as
more and more boats go to the Spiegel Grove.
Bad weather and luck plagued the ship, which in May
sank in an inverted position in 130 feet of water, about six
miles off Key Largo. In June, Fort Lauderdale salvage com-
pany Resolve Marine sunk the ship on its starboard side, the
bow facing northeast and the .stem southwest.
With the Spiegel Grove now on its starboard side, divers
will have 400 feet of the ship's portside railing to grasp onto
in only 48 to 56 feet of water. Right-side up, the artificial
reef's depth at its wheelhouse would have started at about 60
feet, allowing only more advanced divers accompanied by
dive masters to be taken there.
But that theory is still being debated by some dive shop
owners, who insist a diver either be certified as an advanced
diver, or pay for a dive master to be present regardless.
Dive boat Capt. Mike Brooks from Horizon Divers said


if the ship was upright, there would be more places for divers
to avoid much of the ripping current they now face. Less cur-
rent means less diver stress, panic and rescue work for dive
boat operators.
The Spiegel Grove is the largest ship ever sunk inten-
tionally as an artificial reef. The same economic groups in the
Upper Keys that brought the ship here in the first place
scrambled to pay to have the Spiegel Grove righted after it
didn't sink as planned.
The board of directors of the Key Largo Chamber of
Commerce added funds to the $1.1 million already in play to
pay Resolve Marine to put the ship in an upright position on
the ocean's floor.
Capt. Spencer Slate, from Captain Slates's Atlantic Dive
Center in Key Largo, said the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo
pledged $80,000 to help finish the job, with the Upper Keys
Tourist Develop Council putting up a matching $80,000.
The final cost came to around $1.4 million.
According to an estimate by the TDC, the Upper Keys
economy will profit by about $14 million a year. That money
will benefit all business segments of the Upper Keys, from
sport diving to restaurants, motels, gift shops, food stores and
more.
The Spiegel Grove is named for the winter home of
President Rutherford B. Hayes. The idea first took shape in
1994 over beers at Sharkeys Bar.
Eight years later, the Spiegel Grove was brought here with

help from the Upper Keys Chamber of Commerce, the TDC,
area dive shops and financing from three Upper Keys banks.
A medallion system will help pay back loans. Each of
the Upper Keys dive shop owners signed an agreement
requiring a $10 medallion to be purchased before a diver
would be boated out to the artificial reef. The medallions
would also cover divers going to the two Coast Guard cutters
already sunk nearby the Duane and the Bibb.
The dive operators hope to sell 15,000 medallions a year.

Moose sightings make up for lack offish in Chapleau, Ontario


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Chapleau, Ontario I wish you could have come
along. Even though the fishing was disappointing, the
wildlife sightings up here were thrilling.
I'll never forget the bull moose I named Esher Healey.
When I spotted him through the trees along Esher
Healey Road, which skirts Canada's 2,788 square mile
Chapleau Crown Game Preserve, the bull was standing
knee-deep in a marshy backwater of one of North Ontario's
shmillion or so lakes. He wore fuzzy new antlers.
"Moose,". I announced. "Moose," echoed Sandy
Wiseman, my Canadian brother-in-law, our voices overlap-
ping. He hit the brakes.
During a week in the brush, this was our best sighting
with the best lighting. Sandy, whose wildlife photos are often
breathtaking, had left his camera back at the fishing lodge.
Esher noticed the dusty blue station wagon, stared at it
for half a minute, suspicious but unafraid.
Then he ducked his big long snoot under water, up to
the ears, and came up with a gallon or two draining from
between his teeth and out his nostrils. He chewed and swal-
lowed the soft marsh plants he'd dunked for, then dunked
again, muffled like a chocolate donut.
If he were a cow moose, escorting a calf or two in
July, they almost always are Esher would be Esther.
She'd duck for cover the second we stopped.
"The males are different," local fella Bob Landry told
us. He didn't mean the usual viva la differencia stuff. Moose
machismo mandates a no-fear sneer. Stay in your car if you
know what's good for you, Esher's expression, seemed to
say. Every minute or two he'd look over our way to make
sure we got it.
Landry and his wife Sally run the Chapleau Lodge,
where Sandy and I went for a week's fishing on Borden
Lake. The Landry's grew up here, so they take moose, black
bear, deer, foxes, lynx even the occasional wolf pretty
well for granted. When city folks see those sights, we get
excited. Esher was our 12th moose on this trip, and the nov-
elty wasn't close to wearing off.
You should have seen that. You'd love the long days,

too. After supper, we'd go back on the lake with enough
light to stay out till10 p.m. If we decided to look for wildlife
instead, we'd hit Highway 101 about 8:30 p.m. with two
hours till dark fall. The later the time, the more we'd see.
Rte. 101 goes west to Wawa, on the northeast comer
of Lake Superior. Sometimes at-dawn and twilight, the 20
miles west of Chapleau are like a roadside zoo.
Route 129, south toward Lake Huron, is almost as good.
That's where Sandy and I saw our first moose of this trip, a
female hurrying her two calves across the road. On the way
down, we found a doe and fawn.
In the Crown Game Preserve, you can hardly avoid see-
ing moose and black bears. Hunting has been banned in the
preserve since it was established in 1925, and the critters
seem to know it.
The preserve's fishing, at least by reputation, is often
terrific. Most of the lakes harbor pike, small mouth bass and
walleye, often miscalled pickerel in these parts. Many of the
preserve's streams hold brook trout, too.
There are a couple of lodges in there Loch Island
Lodge and Errington's Wildemess Island Resort, both on
Lake Wabatongushi. With more time and money we might
have gone there as well. But we had driven up from Toronto,
about 10 hours on the road, and didn' i vant lu l ear our-
selves out riding.
Anyway, Borden Lake, the location of Chapleau Lodge,

Lodge accommodations on the rugged side in rustic Chapleau


has the same fish as Wabatongushi, and whitefish to boot.
Typically in Ontario, fishing trippers have three choices
on the rugged-to-easy scale. This time we went the easy
way, with a full-scale lodge. That doesn't necessarily mean
luxurious, but it means you don't work except at fishing.
You get a simple but comfortable motel-style room
that's cleaned daily. You get fed very well (folks from town
often drive out to Chapleau Lodge for dinner). The boats and
outboard motors are kept in good working order by an all-
around dockhand who'll clean your catch for dinner or ice.it
for shipment home if you like.
At Chapleau Lodge, the Landry's even give you the.use
of a portable electronic fish finder at no added charge. That
way you can see there are plenty of fish in the lake, so if you
fail to catch any, you take the blame.
Midlevel accommodations are a small herd of house-
keeping cabins. Most fishing facilities in the north are this
type. You get a cabin with beds, usually with bedding, and
an adequate kitchen with utensils, fridge and stove. There
might be a convenience store on the premises.
This is a lot cheaper than a lodge, but you haul in your
own food and cook it yourself. At the end of a long day on
the lake, you may not want to do that.
The most economical way is camping, do-it-yourself all
the way. That could mean a tent, a small travel trailer or one
of those little boxes that you tow behind your car. You find
a likely stopping spot usually a clearing off a dirt road or
a provincial campground near the highway where you
crank open your tiny trailer into a micro-cabin.
Country Canadians love those things. In summertime,
you're liable to find some near every rural off-highway
launching ramp. The folks stash an aluminum skiff a few
yards away on the shore and leave it there, hauling a small
outboard motor up from town on summer weekends.
If you had come with us, you'd have met those people
and that would have been nice, but you know what? I'm a
little bit glad you weren't with us.
Then you would know about a certain creek we found
gurgling into Lake Huron. It's an easy-to-miss stream with
water so clear that you can cast a fly 50 feet, watch a hefty
coho salmon come out from between rocks in a deep pool,
tell what it's thinking as it rises to the surface,-stage-whisper
to it (Bite! Bite!) and watch it slurp that fly and swim away.
Just as well you couldn't go.
