Boat storage
to soon dry up
at Crandon Park


Keeping the
heat down with some
cool recipes


Hurricane Andrew blew apart formerly touted boating myths


Devastation turned into an
education for marinas
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
All over Black Point Marina that weird morning on
Aug. 24, 1992, the day Hurricane Andrew blasted into
southern Miami-Dade County, there was din boat.homs.
burglar alarms, fire alarms, every sort of nois" malfunction
alert, amplifying the chaos.
An angry man accosted the dockmaster: "M\ .boat
sank!" he cried.
"Everybody's boat sank," Jay Bogaards replied
Not exactly true, as plenty of boats were lifted into the
air by a 13-foot storm surge and \ere dipped onto- the
docks, or impaled on pilings, or tumbled high upland, or
squashed when the dry storage barn was blown apart and
everything inside it collapsed.
The Point was the first landmark on the mainland that
the hurricane's eyewall bumped right after crossing Boca
Chita, Sands and Elliott Keys.
Along v ith all the property it ruined, Andrew also
demolished a few myths once accepted as gospel by boaters.
Here's a telling paragraph from a damage analysis by
Edward K. Baker and Maria Villanueva of the University of
Miami's school of marine science:
"In many cases, conventional wisdom was shown to be
unwise. Perhaps the best illustration of this was the vulnera-
bility of boats docked or moored in so-called hurricane holes.
It was shown that if a storm the magnitude and strength of
Hurricane Andrew passes over such a 'hole,' standard docks
and moorings will be no match for the storm."
Black Point used to have a reputation as a hurricane
haven overrated as it turned out. Bogaards said many peo-
ple who feared for their boats' safety came there from
Crandon Park, Matheson Hammock, Homestead Bayfront
Park and the Ocean Reef Yacht Club. He had only 178 wet

slips, but he couldn't turn anyone away.
Next day, they realized they had come to the wrong
place.
'We had boats here that we couldn't identify," Bogaards
says now. 'We didn't know where they came from, but they
were upside down in our slips."
An important change in public policy was made as
Andrew swooped in. County and city emergency managers,
and apparently owners of most private marinas, decided not
to enforce a standard lease clause requiring boaters to move
their vessels when a hurricane watch is issued.
If they were forced to move, with no place to go, thou-
sands of boaters would have been caught out on the bay or
on the roads. It's likely that many would have been killed.


Instead, boats left in marinas crashed into docks and build-
ings an expensive but acceptable tradeoff.
To tour the renovated facilities today, you wouldn't
guess how badly Hurricane Andrew ravaged Black Point
and Matheson Hammock marinas, two of Miami-Dade
County's busiest public marinas.
Neither could you imagine the damage done at
Dinner Key, the city of Miami's showcase marina, but
there's a bright side to that. A major renovation in 1989
had structurally prepared the 582-slip marina for a hurri-
cane. Even so, it cost just over $5 million to rehabilitate
the place after Andrew.

Sailing club seeks donations of cash, boats to keep program afloat


Hollywood City Commission agrees
to allow Gulfstream to keep land if
sailing classes are extended to kids
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A fundraising campaign to purchase a fleet of
Optimist prams is being waged by a local sailing club, so
that members can conduct lessons for children on a pub-
licly owned plot of land that the group leases in
Hollywood.
The Hollywood Sunfish Fleet, a division of the
Gulfstream Sailing Club in Fort Lauderdale, has one year
to develop the program or risk losing the site as their
launch point.
The sunfish fleet was given the time limit by
Hollywood City Commissioners, who initially considered
selling the property at 923 N. Ninth Ave.
The land could generate up to $800,000 for city cof-
fers. Although the club does hold sailing classes at the
site, sessions are geared to teens and adults. The club
would like to have classes for kids, but does not have the


proper size boats.
Despite questioning the use of tax dollars being spent
to maintain the property, city commissioners nixed the
idea of a sale in July when fleet members and area home-
owners spoke in favor of keeping the parcel, called
Sailor's Point Park.
The decision to let the sunfish fleet stay, provided
they agree to expand the sailing program to children, has
the group scrambling for donations of money and boats.
City commissioners have said they will renew the fleet's
agreement for the property in one year.
Members estimate they need at least 10 prams, said
Bill Gossett of Davie, a sailing instructor with the
Hollywood Sunfish Fleet. His wife, Linda, is the fleet's
captain.
The club has been leasing the city-owned land for $1
a year since 1990 in exchange for offering sailing lessons
to residents at no charge, said Bill Gossett.
The club presently has 10 sunfish boats and gives
sailing lessons three times a year, in the spring, summer
and fall. Classes are free to Hollywood residents with a
$40 deposit that is refundable upon completion of the
course. Fees are $100 for the general public and $75 for


The group is seeking

Gulfstream Sailing Club members, said Linda Gossett.
The sunfish boats were donated to the group.
Members pay to maintain the vessels, said Bill Gossett.
But they're not suitable for kids. The prams are
geared to youngsters ages 6 to 16, he said.
"This is a considerable project," said Bill Gossett. "It
took us three to four years to build a fleet of 10 sunfish. With
the prams, we're being asked to build a fleet in one year"
Bill Gossett estimates that the prams cost about
$3,500 each. The group is seeking cash contributions,
donations of used prams, or volunteers who will build the
boats, he said.
"We will take prams and sunfish in any condition,"
he said.

Crandon Park's boat storage to dry up in wake of master plan


Powerboaters left without
many options or much time
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Problem: Crandon Park's public marina looks slightly
unsightly. Miami-Dade County's solution? Evict 110 rent-
paying powerboat owners from a-stockade where they keep
their boats on trailers.
Replace them with what? A mangrove forest? Manatee
haven? Something wonderful?
No. Instead, parking for everyday traffic will replace the
stockade's fulltime storage. Instead of boats on trailers, there
will be more trailers behind cars and pickups. The lot is to be
decorated with trees.
The proposed renovation falls under a master plan
enacted in 1996, but the county Parks and Recreation
Department didn't begin telling boat owners until the end of
this past June.
Now they are being thrust into the open market, where
they say out-of-water storage would cost them up to four
times what they pay at Crandon Park.
That's if boaters can find a place to go at all. Many are
not allowed to keep their vessels in condo, townhouse and
other residential communities.
They have to leave Crandon by Dec.l, while waiting

lists elsewhere run to 18 months long.
In opposition, boaters have organized the Crandon Dry
Storage Association.
"None of us knew this was coming," said their
spokesman, Larry Wasserscheid. "We owners are left with no
options for storage of our boats in the Greater Miami area.
There are literally no facilities available to accommodate us
none."
He and other annual tenants began organizing after
Kathy Haley, the county's manager of marina operations,
sent a letter dated June 26 informing them that their leases,
up for renewal on Aug. 1, would be cancelled then.
They were given two choices: Leave the dry storage
stockade by the deadline or extend their rentals by four
months to Dec. 1, when the stockade would be reduced to 20
spaces meant only for sailboats.
Almost everyone is extending, but hardly anyone
expects to find another place by Dec. 1.
In practical terms, the stockade saves boaters money and
time. They don't have to tow their boats through city traffic
to Key Biscayne, or pay the causeway toll ($7.50 for a two-
axle trailer).
But these are not important concerns to owners like

drives to Crandon Park nearly every weekend with his wife
and kids. Their favorite cruising area, Biscayne National
Park, lies just south of Key Biscayne. Often they make it a
two-day voyage, spending Saturday nights on the boat.
Says Escriba: "In Fort Lauderdale the marinas are very
expensive, and there's no beach to go to with a boat. Before,
I had it at Harbour Towne Marina in Dania. That cost me
$360 a month vs. $133 here, and there are better beaches for
kids down here, like Elliot Key."
Unlike yearly tenants, month-to-month renters like
Escriba say they never received a letter about the closing.
Escriba was told on the last weekend in July, when he paid
his August rent. He wonders why it wasn't mentioned when
he signed on in the first place.
County Manager Steve Shiver is trying to help the
boaters ordering inquiries to be made to the city of Miami,
which has a large fenced lot next to the ruins of Marine
Stadium just up the road from Crandon.
Tenants complain that whoever decided not to notify
them until the end of June doesn't understand that marina
space is scarce, and was too distant or indifferent to give
it a thought.
Haley would not explain the abruptness of her 31-day
notice to dry storage tenants. She referred questions to Parks
and Recreation spokeswoman Yvonne McCormack-Lyons.

director Vivian D. Rodriguez. "Strictly for that reason, we've
got to try to keep the facility. We could possibly lose up to a
couple of hundred thousand dollars per year in revenue."
Even though the parks department manages the marina
and carries out the master plan, nobody there has authority to
change the plan or hurry the process. Neither has the County
Commission. It's up to a four-member advisory board, where
county government has a voice but doesn't have control.
That state of affairs grew from a legal dispute between
the county and the Matheson family heirs, whose ancestors
once owned nearly all of Key Biscayne. In 1940 they gave
the northern end of the island, about 900 acres, to the county
for a park.
The Mathesons inserted certain restrictions into the
deed, requiring the place to remain inostly a natural preserve
with traditional recreational activities beaches, boating,
picnics, etc, for the enjoyment of the general public, not to
enrich entrepreneurs. The park was forbidden to be tacky.
Commercial activity would be strictly limited.
In time, that vision was compromised, with county gov-
ernment eventually allowing construction of a pro tennis sta-
dium and related facilities to accommodate the Lipton Tennis
Tournament.
Bruce Matheson and his relatives sued the county, which
had no choice except to settle the case.

When looks count
This is the first time the board is being asked for amend-
ments, Faragalli said. He hopes to win the argument to keep
dry storage, but he hesitates to predict it.
What's wrong with the stockade? The park's master plan
says the whole marina area, with its hodgepodge of signs,
building styles and landscaping, is too un-park-like. It's the
first Crandon landmark you see when you drive onto Key
Biscayne, and it looks like a typical commercial enterprise,
not a park.
The plan scarcely mentions the stockade itself, except to
say it provides utility but denies beauty to the marina. That
can be solved, boaters say, without throwing them overboard.
"We are willing to pay higher rent, we are willing to take
a special assessment fee to beautify the place and landscape
it if that is the issue"' said spokesman Wasserscheid. "We are
willing to put in physical labor and do the work ourselves.
We'd be willing to consider any and all opportunities to stay."
The Crandon Marina Dry Storage Association meets on
alternate Monday evenings at Taurus, a Coconut Grove tav-
ern. For information, contact Larry Wasserscheid at 305-361-

Swimmers to take to the New River to re-enact 75-year old race


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Racers competing in a marathon race on Fort
Lauderdale's New River will swim in cleaner waters than
previously thought, according to a study released Aug. 26.
Reportedly, the roughly two-mile section of river from
Colee Hammock Park, at 1500 Brickell Dr., to the Summing
Hall of Fame, at 1 Hall of Fame Dr., is safe enough to allow
the race, according to tests performed by Broward's
Department of Planning and Environmental Protection.
The race is being held on Labor Day, Sept. 2, to re-
enact a former 75-year old event held on'the New River.
Sam Freas, president of the International Swimming
Hall of Fame, Inc., never thought the pollution risks were be
too great.
"There have been other swims in more polluted water-
ways around the world," said Freas, whose organization is
sponsoring the historic re-enactment along with a coalition
of local civic groups.
Even with pollution concerns, the Hall of Fame
received hundreds of calls from interested swimmers, he
said.
It is unknown how many will qualify, but those select-
ed must meet certain health and ability standards. All
swimmers must also be accompanied by,a boat with a sup-
port crew.
A separate race will be held for canoes and kayaks, with
a starting point to be announced. The finish will be at the
Hall of Fame.
To qualify, participants must present certification or
demonstrate their knowledge of the craft, Freas said.
The swim race starts at 7:30 a.m. The kayak run follows
at 8:30 a.m., prior to the canoe run at 9:30 a.m. There will
be a staggered start for all races and awards will be present-
ed. Registration is $25.
As part of the festivities, history, safety and environ-
mental exhibits will be set up at the junction of Brickell
Avenue and the New River.
Organizers are hoping that the 75th anniversary re-
enactment will become an annual event, Freas said.
Freas was first alerted to the milestone anniversary by
Susan Peterson, a local writer and swimming champion.
While on vacation, she found two trophies from the 1927


*UI


and 1928 races at an antique shop in Georgia.
"Her intention, when she called me, was to let us
know it was the 75th anniversary of the event and that we
should let people know," Freas said. I said, why don't we
re-create it.'
According to Peterson's research, thousands of people
came out to watch the two races, in 1927 and 1928. The first
marathon was held the year after the 1926 hurricane that
devastated South Florida. The marathons were supposed to
boost tourism and the spirits of local residents.
Robert Hilbert, executive for the Old Davie Historical
Museum in Davie, said two world-class swimmers in the
1927 and 1928 races were from Davie. Orval Mains finished
.second in the men's division in the 1927 marathon. His
brother, Clayton, finished first in the 1928 race.
The woman's winner in 1927 and 1928 was Alice
Shaw, whose family are Davie pioneers still living in the
town, said Hilbert, whose group is one of the anniversary
race's sponsors.
"There used to be an entire festival surrounding the

called the Las Olas Swimming
Team) with their numerous state

marathon, with a parade and a carnival', Hilbert said.
Back then, swimmers in the New River not only had to
dodge alligators. They had to stay clear of sharks too, he
said.
Hilbert is pleased about the upcoming re-enactment. "It
will promote good will and promote Fort Lauderdale as a
mecca for swimmers," he said.
The 1927 and 1928 races put Fort Lauderdale in the
national spotlight by showcasing the city's natural water-
ways and recreational opportunities.
Organizers of the 75th anniversary re-enactment want
to do the same, as well as focus on the waterway's condition.
"We're doing it for history, for education," Freas said.
"We're doing it so that people become very conscious of
the water."
Through the re-enactment, organizers want to elevate
the public's sensitivity to the New River.
S "One of the things that will come out is how the water
is polluted and ways not to pollute it," Freas said.
"If it keeps one person from polluting the river, it's a
noble cause," Hilbert said.

Swimming Hall of Fame at 954-462-6536.

Keep the fall yac

economy afloat

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfrn'nt Neu s Columnist
Late September traditionally marks the
grand return of an endless parade of huge
vachts into South Florida. resuming a course
through Port Everglades and to points
beyond as captains arrive to resolve annual
ser ice and repair needs.
Transients also pass through for re-pro-
visioning on their trek to the Caribbean for
the winter, and new-builds hot off the press
make final preparations for debut in the fall
-boat show.
Looking back to this time last year, we.
N\ere wondering what would come next.
Some of us were not thinking about spending
money on yacht maintenance, instead won-
dering if we should escape aboard our vessels
to the South Pacific.
The terrorist attacks created an interest-'
ing phenomenon that may have prompted
strong sales for new vessels and a whole new
perspective for those who already owned
them. The logic: "Why keep all that money
invested in the stock market if the terrorists
are going to take our economy down?
Instead, invest in a boat to retreat to a safer
location if things get ugly."
This upcoming September will likely
rekindle powerful jitters. Repair and mainte-
nance revenues clearly dropped off last sea-
son, but 2002 might deliver a decent recovery.
Large vessels cannot operate for long
before things begin to break or require
replacement. Some work that would have
been ordered last fall was postponed due to
the uncertainty. The result? I think lots of
dinged props and a gargantuan pile of work
orders are headed our way.
Local shipyards are spooling up for the
onslaught and everyone is hunkering down
for business. Charters are booking up, bro-
kers are scrambling with new listings, sup-
pliers have beefed up inventories and talent-
ed craftspeople are coming back to town


looking for work.
But what are the hidden pitfalls that
should be weighed against our prediction
for abundance this fall? Yeah, the yachts
will come in and, yeah, plenty of green-
backs will be divvied up among the players
but I still hear another drumbeat off in the
distance when it comes to our long-term
stability as an industry.
Way too many captains and owners are
hinting that they are steadily becoming dis-
enchanted with "the Fort Lauderdale
scene." They acknowledge our superiority
in terms of locale, weather, expertise,
ambiance and appeal. But when it comes to
fair prices, good attitude and a strong ser-
vice-minded sense of urgency from ship-
yard and marina personnel, their eyes tend
to roll back a little more often than should
be acceptable.
It seems the growing feeling is that
Fort Lauderdale may be getting a little too
cocky when it comes to servicing clients.
If this is true, I hope we get past false-
ly believing that there will always be
enough business to go around. The marine
industry must remember that large vessels
are exceptionally mobile, and that it is easy
for them to other ports.
To assume that our latitude will make
up for a bad attitude is shortsighted and
troublesome to say the least. Combine that
with our city's internal challenge in
attempting to maintain a strong marine
presence on the waterfront in the midst of
aggressive development projects that do
away entirely with shipyards and marinas,
and the stakes grow even higher. .The
marine industry and our designation as the
"yachting capital of the world" is a title
worth preserving and each of us should do
our part to keep it that way.

Rick Roughen is a Fort Lauderdale
marina president.

'Golden Anchor' winner helps to navigate environmental laws


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Susan Engle loves a challenge.
And that's probably why she's able to navigate the
complex world of environmental regulations.
Through the consulting firm that she built 15 years
ago, Engle helps marine companies comply with mount-
ing laws, while teaching regulatory agencies to better
understand boating.
"I enjoy trying to bring people together to find solu-
tions to a situation," she said, citing the growing govern-
mental pressures.
"It's been unfair by some sources to paint the marine
industry as being against environmental concerns. In real-
ity, we all benefit from a cleaner and safer environment,
but the key is having both sides understand and respect
each other so there can be a mutual solution so everyone
wins."
This summer the Marine Industries Association of
South Florida named Engle its 2002 "Golden Anchor"
award winner, a title that recognizes accomplishments in
boating.
Engle, president of Fort Lauderdale-based
EnviroCare, Inc., gets top marks from Jim Bronstein of
Rybovich Spencer Yacht Marine Services of West Palm
Beach.
"She came to our rescue a number of years ago when
we thought it would be a simple matter to remove an old
tank from our yard," Bronstein said. Engle "steered us
through all the governmental bureaucracy, which we had
no idea would be involved in this issue.?
Bronstein credits Engle's firm with providing valu-
able professional guidance in how to properly dispose of
the tank.
"I still have a small bottle of dirt in my office to
remind me of what we went through and how important
environmental issues have become to the marine indus-
try," he said.
An Iowa native and the oldest of six kids, Engle was
introduced to boating by her father. "I saw how boating
brought us as a family so close together and knew it would
be some part of my life."

This summer the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida named Susan Engle, president of an
environmental marine consulting firm, its 2002 "Golden
Anchor" award winner, a title that recognizes
accomplishments in boating.
She moved to Florida in 1982 with a college degree in
accounting, before being encouraged by a friend to start
her own business in the growing environmental field,
where she practices a talent for understanding procedures
and regulatory agencies.
That led her to leadership committee work with the
MIASF and eventually to two terms as president, one of
only three women to head the 800-member group.
"One thing I learned was to have patience, but be per-
sistent," said Engle, 'vho has facilitated a number of issues

for the marine industry.
"Susan has given her knowledge and personal time on
many different fronts," said MIASF President Scott Miser.
"She's been an entrepreneur, a wife, mother of two, who
still somehow makes time to swing a golf club or go boat-
ing with her family."
Engle has served on numerous boards promoting
boating and was a two-term gubernatorial appointee on
the Florida Boating Advisory Council.
"I've always loved to learn and be challenged in some
way. I know I can accomplish anything that I set my sights
on and I enjoy trying new things."
In her private time, she's an avid golfer and goes boat-
ing with her husband and their two children, age 4 and 5.
"I already have them hooked on boating and they've
given me reason to move in directions to promote water
safety for young people," said Engle.
She founded the Center for Environmental Education
and Research Inc., a not-for-profit organization dedicated
to promoting boating, water safety and environmental
awareness. CEERI has pioneered the creation of a Boater
101 safety course designed to certify school children in
boating safety. The course is expected to be available over
the Internet this year.
CEERI also has moved to establish Swim 101, geared
toward pre-Kindergarten children. Hundreds of colorful
booklets and video tapes explaining the value of learning
how to swim have been given to day care centers.
But while Engle has enjoyed all the challenges in her
life, she said she's learning how to say, "no."
"I still am passionate about a lot of things and will
continue to work on causes that interest me, but I know I
want to spend more time with my children during these
formative years and work in areas that have a special
meaning to me."
Engle said she's been lucky to be able to leave her
busy professional life at her office. "I can shut it off when
I am at home with my kids," she said.

Andrew shed light on effects of seawater on marina electrical systems


"We used steel reinforcement sheathed in epoxy, so
concrete pilings that broke could 'ie patched:' said Allan
Poms, chief architect in the city's public works department.
"If there had not been so many vessels in the marina we'd
have come through in relatively good shape."
Sitting with Jay Bogaards at his desk, looking at his
1992 photo albums of Black Point, it's hard to believe how-
little damage was done almost next door at Homestead
Bayfront marina. Those two and Matheson Hammock maii-
na were inside Andrew's eyewall at landfall. :
"The hurricane blew the waterout of Homestead, so the
boats there went to the bottom and then floated back up,"
Bogaards says. "That's just three or fourmiles south of us,
and we got devastated." '
When the costs were added up, the Homestead marina
had only $622,386 in damage small change fora $25 bil-
lion hurricane. Black Point's damage for the.marina proper.
and dry storage barn totaled $3 million. Boat destruction,
wet and dry together, was estimated at $18 million.
Even concrete piers weren't strong enough, says Frank
Reddish, who works on marine concerns for the county
Office of Emergency Management: "They were sheared off.
The guy who designed them was thinking of drunken
boaters running into them sidewise. He never envisioned a
45-foot Hatteras crashing down from above, which hap-
pened. The dock was destroyed."
Rebuilding at Matheson Hammock cost $5.2 million,
mostly for the marina the only significant facility in that
park. The marina's centerpiece bait and tackle shop, fuel-
ing station and the docks surrounding that, the six oldest
ones -were wiped out.
Those docks were replaced by floating ones with end
wheels to guide them on a tide ride 25 feet up concrete pil-
ings that are thicker than most trees in the park. The rest of
the docks have aluminum planking. Two were fit to repair
and another was re-decked. They all got new pilings and
electric and water supply hookups.
After Andrew, many of the hammock's trees were gone,
the rest left naked. 'We didn't have a leaf on a tree," says Jeff
West, the park manager. "From here, we could see traffic
moving on Kendall Drive. It's a very strange feeling, almost

like a desecration of sorts."
The marina, located about a mile from Kendall Drive,'
was at the northern edge of the hurricane's eyewall. The
worst upland storm damage was vell south of there. but hur-
ricanes can be randomly pick..
For example, the north side of Andrew's eyewall defor-
ested Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park at the south end of
Key Biscayne, but scarcely sneezed on Crandon Park
Marina on the north end of the key. (The county later spent
$2.5 million replacing eight piers there, but those were dete-
riorating already). Then it crossed Biscayne Bay to
Matheson Hammock, pushing the bay out of the way and
into Miami's Coconut Grove district.
Near shore there, the bay is dotted by little spoil piles
called picnic islands, with official mooring and anchorage
sites on the inside and informal ones outside.
The Grove, loaded with marinas and boats in a city
with few adequately protected waters, was a perfect target.
Even hiding in a canal, for those who could do that, wasn't
much help, as reported in a survey by a University of Florida
team led by G.A. Antonini:
"The outer anchorage at Dinner Key was completely
exposed to open water fetch... The picnic islands offered lit-
tle if any protection to the inner anchorage and to vessels
docked at Dinner Key Marina, Grove Key Marina, Merrill
Stevens Drydock, Biscayne Bay Yacht Club and Coral Reef
Yacht Club. Only a diked basin and hurricane gate system

would have guaranteed their protection."
That report also points out that marina entrance chan-
nels and bay tributaries are oriented east and west funnels
for piled-up seawater. Boats that weren't smashed at the
docks or flung ashore rode the surge into the canals, bashing
against each other and boats that were already there.
More than a third of the 918 vessels found sunken,
grounded and otherwise damaged by Andrew were concen-
trated within a mile and a half of Dinner Key no surprise,
considering the high concentration of public and private
marinas in that area.
One of the most expensive lessons that Andrew taught
the marine community is about electricity. It seems like a
no-brainer now, but the best-sealed marina power systems
don't cope with seawater very well. That was demonstrated
at every marina, some more slowly than others.
Alan Poms, the Miami public works architect, said the
wiring installed during Dinner Key Marina's previous reno-
vation seemed at first to.come through Andrew pretty well.
A lot of care had been taken to use glove-like coverings
filled with silicone to prevent water intrusion.
"Some of them worked and some didn't," Poms said.
"In some instances we found that cables that had been under
water started shorting out years later. Just enough salt got
between the strands of copper. If we ever have an event like
this again, we will just replace the wiring. Anything that
went under water, we'll just have to replace it."

Waterfront castle rules over Tarpon River neighborhood


This is one in a series of special features taking a
look at landmarks dotting south Florida's waterways.
This month's feature explores a unique structure in Fort
Lauderdale's Tarpon River neighborhood.
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
It may lack an official address and overgrown foliage is
starting to hide it from view, but a one-of-a-kind home in
southwest Fort Lauderdale's Tarpon River affirms the old
adage that a man's home can really be a castle.
"We get people stopping by all the time to take a look at
it and take pictures," said Ed Brin, who lives next door and
maintains the grounds of the castle-like residence that sits on
the comer of Southwest Fifth Place and Seventh Avenue.
It was entrepreneur Chuck Norman who built the struc-
ture over 30 years ago as a place to go and hang out with
friends. Norman loved to play music, and the building with
its two feet-thick walls, was the perfect hideaway to jam
with his musician buddies and not disturb anyone.
They had a blast in the large lower level living room
area and didn't bother anyone in the neighborhood no mat-
ter how loud they played," Brin explained.
The building itself was constructed in the 1920s along
the New River, close to Tarpon River for which the neigh-
borhood is named.
"There were lots of just little cottages and shacks
around here in those early years," said Brin, who has lived at
609 SW 5th Place for the past 28 years.
When Norman was buying up several of the small
houses in the neighborhood in the 1970s, he so much liked
the two-story waterfront structure that he decided to create
his very own castle. He enclosed the two-car garage area that
was on the lower level and slightly remodeled the small sec-
ond-level efficiency apartment.
The building, which Brin said measures 20 feet tall, 20


feet Wide and 20 feet long, was originally all stucco. But
Norman hired a craftsman to make the exterior stand out,
and the work resulted in a castle facade.
Brin said the job "took forever" as workmen, using only
their hands, slapped concrete onto the walls and then added
pieces of brain coral and other rocks. To create small towers
over the windows and the. front door, the workman made
cone-like shapes from chicken wire and covered them with

the concrete and coral.
Norman placed animal figurines on top of small con-
crete pipes at the entranceway and the comer of the lot
where Southwest Fifth Place meets' Southwest Seventh
Avenue.
"Little by little, it started to take shape and really was
quite the place to see when it was done," said Brin.

Owners Association and a Riverside Park resident, said

it all came about" she said. "But it's an interesting landmark /
that can't help but create interest and I'm sure a lot of peo-
ple have noticed and wondered about it over the years."
Brin said the lower level living room has smoked
glass lining the walls and bulletproof windows to protect
it from mischievous kids in the neighborhood. That was
where Norman and musician friends would hold regular
jam sessions.
"It was all pretty neat," said Brin, who said the mini-
castle immediately began to draw attention from locals and
tourists driving through the city's southwest neighborhoods.
"People are always stopping to take pictures or even
have tried to climb over the fence to get a better view:" said
Brin. "But I tell them they can see if all from the street."
David Rose, president of the Tarpon River Civic
Association, calls the house the "Tarpon River Castle"' and

City lease deal depends on sailing club offering classes to kids


The club is also looking at several other options
including grants, said Linda Gossett.
The club wants to hold on to the city-owned: site,
which members also use for races. The site has two boat
ramps, water, electricity and shade trees, said Bill Gossett.
"The property is perfectly suited for sailing instruc-
tion," said Bill Gossett. "If our club could get the prams,
we could run a viable program for children."
The club has picked up support from the Hollywood
Lakes Section Civic Association. Board members for the
homeowners group voted to start a fund and are trying to
collect enough money to purchase one. possibly rwo
prams, said Joe Bishop. an association board member.
The group was recently quoted a price of $1.900 for a
single pram. Bishop said.
"We were also thinking about selling sponsorships."
he said. "Companies that donate a certain amount of
money will have their logo or name put on the boats."
The association has told city commissioners that its
members oppose selling the property.
"We would like to see it stay as a sailing amenity,
whether the Gulfstream Sailing Club runs it, the city runs

it or someone else runs it," Bishop said. "The alternative
would be to have a house on the land. Once we lose it,
there would be no sailing in Hollywood whatsoever. It
only makes sense we should try to preserve it."
The property has been home to sailing programs for
more than 20 years.
"Many of the Lakes residents learned how to sail
there when the city ran. its own program years ago,"
Bishop said.
Prior to the city owning the land, a military academy
used the property for sailing instruction. When the school
closed, the property was deeded to the city some 30 years
ago, Bishop said.
Since the Hollywood Sunfish Fleet took over sailing
instruction on the property, classes have been very popu-
lar, said Linda Gossett.
Registration has been entirely through word of


mouth. "The classes have always been full," she said.
"I've had to turn people away."
Linda Gossett said a children's sailing program will
generate similar interest. She believes classes will be
established within a year.
Bishop agrees that there should be lessons for chil-
dren at the site.
"I used to be a member of the Miami Yacht Club and
they had a large fleet of prams," Bishop said. "I watched
those kids learn to sail. I saw the joy.on their faces. They-
loved it. I really want to see the City of Hollywood have
something like that."

When tying knots leaves you nuts, go fishing for advice


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Ted Williams, the Hall of Fame baseball player who
died in July, was notorious for refusing to wear a necktie, no
matter what the occasion. He used to say that having some-
thing knotted around his neck felt like being strangled.
So it wasn't the tie he hated, but the knot.
I'd bet he wasn't crazy about fishing knots either, espe-
cially the tedium of tying fly leaders: making the right num-
ber of wraps, avoiding overlap, slipping the tag end through
the correct loop, making each section the right length, get-
ting the ends even, losing it up and starting over.
Did knots drive Williams nuts? Not enough to hurt his
fishing. How many other sportsmen do you think are in two
halls of fame?
Williams had to tie his own leaders, just like the rest of
us, until he got enough money to hire guides. Tying leaders
is one of the best things a guide does that you could do your-
self but would rather not.
I wonder if Williams knew the two-wrap hangman's
knot. It makes a loop that lets the lure move freely and nat-
urally. When yanked by a fish bite, the knots slips tight, just
like the executioner's version. Not to be too macabre.
I gained a fresh appreciation of that simple knot while
learning to make fly leaders for tarpon. Yards of monofila-
ment and fluorocarbon, one nipoff at a time, disappeared
into the carpet until I realized that someone else had already
done the trial and error. There are lots of great knots. We just
have to pick the right ones. I settled on certain knots for
effectiveness and ease of tying.
Fly line to leader butt: A nail knot. Plenty of fly-fishing
psychiatrists will swear you're crazy if you use anything
else. There's a British modification called Gray's butt loop.
No, you try it.
The other end.of the leader butt: A perfection loop,
which lies nice and straight. Second choice: a surgeon's
loop, easier but bulkier.
Class tippet: this is the lightest section, meant to fit into
one of IGFA's leader classes for record purposes. If you
don't care, use any size leader from 40-pound test down to
10-pound. If it's 40 or 20, tie a perfection loop for a loop-to-
loop connection with the butt section.
If the class tippet is 20-pound, slip the butt loop through
the tippet loop twice. That's called the offshore loop. If it's
lighter than 20, cut a strand a foot or two longer Douible the
ends using the Spider hitch, named for fishing journalist
Spider Andresen, the inventor. There is no need for the
Bimini t% ist. a show-off's knot. It isn't the knot that matters

here, but the doubled line.
Next, tie a perfection loop in one end to connect to the
loop on the butt section. Loop-tying a doubled line is tricki-
er; try to keep the strands together between your fingers.
Bite or shock tippet: The blood or barrel knot is popu-
lar for tying the class tippet here. It's especially good for
connecting two lines of unequal weight, but a 3-1 or greater
ratio (say a 20-pound class tippet to a 60-pound shock)
makes it necessary to double the lighter line. If you do this a
lot with other tackle, try it here but also try the Albright
knot. It's no harder to tie, and there's no need to double the
lighter line. Single strands of unequal weights match up sur-
prisingly well in an Albright, and it doesn't have two oppos-
ing tag ends to trim.
Bite tippet to fly: For tarpon you want a loop knot,
which allows a natural, free-swimming presentation of your
fly. Three of the best are the Homer Rhode loop, the two-
wrap-hangman's-knot I like so much and the uni-knot loop..-
The uni reputedly is strongest. I v..u-it that on my. side
against a-tarpon. but even with liberal lubrication I need'a
lot of muscle to make the coils set fully in flurocarbon as


UFisi


light as 40-pound test.
So much for knots. What types of leader should you
use? I went through a lot of trial and error before adopting
the sensible views of Capt. Steve Lamp, a Key West tarpon
guide I found on the Internet at www.fishingkeywest.com.
My reel was filled already with a tarpon specialty fly
line and a seven-foot leader butt of 60-pound Sufix, a
monofilament leader material. Here's how Lamp said he
builds the rest of his leader:
"I make the line class section of my leaders with a 20, 16,
12, or 10 lb Mason line. Mason line is without a doubt the best
line for this, as it has very little memory. To straighten it out,
you can use your thumb and a great deal of pressure, pulling
the line through, to make it straight after you tie the leader"
Mason is a hard-finish, stiffish monofilament leader
material. Very little memory? It "forgets" that you've coiled
it on your reel or in your fly box, so it's excellent for laying
out a flat cast for quick presentation to a moving fish. You
don't have to straighten out much slack.
Lamp likes fluorocarbon leader, but only for the 12-inch
shock or bite tippet, tied between the 15-inch Mason class
tippet and the fly. He prefers lighter weights here because
they get him many more bites than heavier stuff, even
though he loses a few more tarpon that way:
"The section I tie on to my fly is about 40-60 pound flu-
oro... Do not use fluoro for your line class tippet. First, the
stuff is too limp. Second, most fluoro does not class out to
IGFA specs."
Why worry about specifications established by the
International Game Fish Association? Are you trying for a
world record this month? Not likely, but suppose you get
that lucky and IGFA rejects you because your class tippet
is shorter than 15 inches between knots or your bite tippet is
longer than 12 inches.,
The IGFA doesn't care what kind'of knots you use.
Neither does Lefty Kreh, guru and demi-god to even the
most non-observant fly fishers. Teach 'en, Lefty:
"There are two reasons for fishing for tarpon ... One is
to catch a world record; the other is for the sheer joy of
-catching-a-tarpon..Those..individuals-swho fall into the-latter
group only need a butt section, a tippet stronger than 20-
pound-test (so ou have abetter chance of landing the fish),
and a bite or shock leader." '.
