South Florida's low bridges: keeping your head high above water


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
"Danny Good hit this bridge 6/18/89. 200 stichs. (sic)
But I'm O.K."
Painted on a bridge beam over the Biscayne Canal.
Danny's red paint is fading, but his words are still legible,
his meaning clear: Be careful. Boating on the canals of south-
east Florida is a pleasure interesting sights, good fishing,
no stitches as long as you look out for low bridges.
They're easy to overlook if you're watching a trolled
lure or staring at something on the bank Hey, look at the
size of that iguana! and the person at the helm doesn't
warn you.
So it's duck-and-hunker cruising. The Biscayne Canal,
also called C-8, is typical that way. Most streets cross at
grade level, which varies from place to place. Even the best
local street maps don't show numerous utility pipe cross-
ings. Most of those are thoughtfully arched overhead, and
some are preceded by warning signs, but you don't know
until you're there.
On a 13-mile discovery voyage from North Miami to
Miami Lakes, the 20-foot outboard 'Witz End 3 encountered
25 bridges and an uncounted number of pipelines. A few
times it was necessary to fold the pedestal seats, kneel on the
deck, duck down and steer through by dead reckoning.
SDanny Good must have been standing when he hit his
ridge, which carries Northwest Seventh Avenue across the
canal at Northwest 154th Street in Miami-Dade County. We
don't know how high the water was that day, but in mid-
October the bridge had ample clearance for our boat, a
SeaCraft that ordinarily measures 55 inches from waterline
to center console grab rail.
The rail and windshield were removed a 15-inch

height reduction to get under a footbridge at Northwest
132nd Street in North Miami.
That one looks lo\\ enough for a jumping mullet to knock
itself out. There's also a heads-down radroad bridge alongside
State Road 9 and two crossings one low. the other lower
- on the north side of Opa-locka Airport. If you're much
taller than six feet, you'll have to hunker more often.
A surprisingly high culvert beneath Red Road
(Northwest 57th Avenue) on the airfield's east side gave us
seven feet to the water surface, but handle-like things
descending from above take about four inches off the interi-
or clearance. It's necessary to stay straight down the middle.
Stop and exchange signals if someone's coming the opposite
way. There isn't enough space in the culvert for both of you.


Here are some important rules: Before you go, measure
from your boat's waterline to its highest point. Then check
the distance fi om .he water to the underbeam of that 132nd'
Street footbridge. It's just a mile from the canal's only pub-
lic launching ramp, and if that's as far as you can go you'll
waste the annual access fee.
Keep in mind that the canals were dug for flood con-
trol, so clearances will vary through the year. For safety,
always come down off plane to idle speed when approach-
ing bridges and culverts. For courtesy, do the same in a res-
idential neighborhood because you are literally riding
through people's back yards.

New video series aims to teach kids boating, swimming safety


Boater 101 course to
be aired in November
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
To promote water safety for kids, educators are employ-
ing methods from traditional to-technological.
A special series of TV videos produced over the sum-
mer will be used in the state's BoaterlOl program, available
to any Florida school that teaches about boating, said Susan
Engle, president of the non-profit Fort Lauderdale-based
Center for Environmental Education and Research Inc, or
CEERI for short.
"This TV series will expose students to boating safe-
ty, environmental concerns, career opportunities and recre-
ation," said Engle. It also will link students to an interac-
tion website where they can obtain more marine-related
information.
The four, 30-minute videos are expected to air over the
Florida Department of Education's statewide educational
network in November and December. Teachers and students
can watch the series then, or obtain videos for use at other
times. The state will also feed the series to the national Public
Broadcasting System, PBS.
Boater 101 is aiming its safety message towards
teenagers 16 years old. The program, which began in 1973,
certifies teen-agers in boating safety. In the past, only teach-

educational kits to be distributed to area day care
centers to promote swim safety for preschoolers.
ers trained in the course taught it, with some 20,000 Florida
students having completed the program.
While some in-class instruction is expected to continue,
the new video allows the course to be presented via the
Florida educational TV network as a distance education tool.
Teachers won't have to go through special training since the
video series presents the course of study.
Engle says the videos give students a chance to see peo-


pie in action. Content includes an interview with a competi-
tive racer, and shows how the marine industry is working on
ways to correct water and air pollution. Experts demonstrate
ways to operate boats and look for safety hazards, while a
career segment takes students aboard a large mega yacht to
see how everyone from the captain to the chef do their jobs.
"This has been a gigantic effort to arrange all the video
tapings, but it is exciting at what we have as an end result,"
Engle said.
CEERI also recently completed the first phase of its new
SwimlOl program geared toward pre-schoolers.
"The number one cause of death among little ones is
drowning," Engle said. She said SwimlOl helps day care
centers to become more aware of the need to teach swim-
ming to youngsters. Special workbooks and videos' have
been prepared with 500 of them distributed throughout
South Florida.
The program also makes referrals to groups like the Red
Cross and YMCA, to teach youngsters how to swim.
"We're excited about this effort because it allows us to
provide an even greater educational outreach to much
younger people," said Engle. Like Boater 101, she hopes
Swim 101 will go national in its scope in the near future.

Proposed ordinance seeks to set docking standards on canal ends


Property owner says city formula
reduces space for boats
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A proposed Fort Lauderdale ordinance that affects
waterfront property owners living on canal ends will be dis-
cussed before City Commissioners- in early November.
The ordinance, which seeks to establish procedures for
placing vessels on lots at the end of canals, was tabled in
early October so that city staff could gather more comments
from residents at a workshop, which was held on Oct. 21 as
the "Waterfront News" was going to press.
The ordinance will be brought back before City
Commissioners for the first of two public hearings at 6 p.m.
on Nov. 5 inside City Hall, at 100 N. Andrews Ave.
-Already, one resident is claiming that the proposed rul-
ing could have a major negative impact because it would
allocate the least amount of usable space to homeowners
with the most amount of water frontage.
The proposed ordinance specifically addresses the
unique circumstances facing berthing envelopes that are
formed at the end of the cul-de-sac portion of the canal.
For other lot owners on the waterway, the problem does-
n'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 impossible to berth a ves-




I mlli il


sel of any reasonable size, according to city officials.
But Tom Lekavich, a homeowner in The Landings
development, said the city's formula to determine the ves-
sel's size is unfair.
Lekavich has spoken out against the ordinance, saying
it will have a negative impact on those homeowners who
have more water frontage.
"What the city is trying to do is put into law the tech-
niques they've been using over the past several years,"
Lekavich said.
According to the city's formula, the people who own
more water frontage will get less usable space and people
with the least amount of water frontage will get more usable
space, Lekavich said.
"For the people who have bought more water frontage,
it devalues their property," he said.
The proposed ordinance says it creates equitable distri-
bution, when in fact the formula does the opposite, he said.
Lekavich points to his own parcel as an example. "I live
on 65 feet of water frontage at the end of a canal," he said.
"My two neighbors at the end of the canal own 25 feet of
water frontage each. Under the city's formula, the neighbors
can keep 30-foot boats. I would be limited to a 22 foot boat."
Lekavich, who presently owns a 30-foot vessel, said if
the ordinance is passed he could be cited by code enforce-
ment officials and forced to get rid of his boat.
The ordinance will also have a negative impact on other
homeowners in The Landings, he said.


The proposed ordinance specifically
addresses the unique circumstances
facing berthing envelopes that are
formed at the end of the cul-de-sac
portion of the canal.
In analyzing the development, Lekavich said the pro-
posed ordinance affects 66 properties, 44 of which are big-
ger lots that would have limited use of water frontage if the
ordinance passes and becomes law.
Because of his findings, Lekavich said The Landings
Development.Homeowners Association has joined him in
coming out against the ordinance.
But Tim Welch, city engineering design manager, dis-
agrees with Lekavich's interpretation.
The formula the city is using has been in effect for many
years, but the problem appears to have resulted from the fact
.that more-waterfront property owners are buying larger boats
for their docks, Welch said.
"The use of the waterway depends on the projections of
the property lines into the waterway, which has been the
interpretation of city staff as it applies to the city code of ordi-
nances," Welch said. "There are a lot of different scenarios,
depending on the geometric configurations of the lot lines."

Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Gloria Katz, who
suggested tabling the ordinance in early October, said prop-
erty owners who live on canal ends need to speak up.

The inns and outs of packing a (fishing) rod in style


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
A band of airline baggage handlers swell fellows
with the gentle hands of nurses in a neo-natal ward are
on the job. For quality assurance purposes, their baggage
wagon is bugged.
Let's listen.
BH 1: I wonder what's in these tubular cases.
BH 2: Fishing rods, I'd say, and probably expensive.
This one's made of machined aluminum. Notice the
durable fabric covering on the other, and the leather ID tag.
BH 3: And the conspicuous labels saying 'Fragile.
Handle with care.' These are the property of a Mr. So-and-
So, and clearly dear to him. He honors us by placing them
in our care. Let us swear to treat them with great respQct.
All: Amen! Amen! Amen!
BH 1: We'll lay the cases in front of the wheels of our
fully loaded baggage wagon before we drive it away.
BH 2: Not the wagon. The tractor wheels.
BH 3: Not the tractor. The plane. Under the landing
gear.
All: Yes! Yes! Yes!
Baggage handlers smash your fishing rods? A pre-
posterous notion, but accidents can happen.
Indeed, they happen often enough for the monthly
newsletter Angling Report to devote a database to listings
of damage done to the baggage of its traveling sub-
scribers.
So maybe there's something to worry about.
What can you do about it? Build your own traveling
rod case. It's easy. It's cheap.
Not that there's anything wrong with the nice alu-
minum case that your $600 fly rod came in, or even the
one made of lightweight plastic.
Those are fine for carry-ons. There are two important
things to know about them:
Given reasonable care, they will protect your rods on
many flights for many years.
Given reasonable force, they will crumple like beer
cans, crack like eggshells.
You might win the lottery next week, but you're not
lucky enough to trust your fishing rods to the airlines
every time you fly. Not in conventional cases.

Our solution: PVC tubes. Not the light-gauge materi-
al, but thick-walled (3/8-inch) schedule 40 pipe, made for
serious plumbing. Husky, rigid, over-protective stuff that
dares the baggage vandals: Go ahead. Make my day.
Home improvement stores stock PVC pipe, usually in
pieces 10 feet long, and most will give you a shorter
length. Ask the floor fellow to cut you a piece as long as
the longest rod you'll pack inside. If you'll take more than
one rod, choose three-inch diameter pipe. For spinning
and ocean trolling rods, with their large line guides, you'll
need that size anyway.
Get a plain cap for the closed end. For the open-and-
shut end, take a screw-threaded end cap and an adaptor
collar to match it. The collar's interior is half plain, half
threaded. That wasn't available when parts were acquired
for the case shown here, so an extra adaptor collar,
unthreaded, was added to accommodate a different-type of
screw-threaded collar.
Your threaded end cap should be the kind with a big

still open it with a wide-gap pliers or adjustable wrench,
which go in your checked-through suitcase. No security
screener or customs inspector is likely to ask you to open
the tube, but they will if you forget the tool.
You'll also need a small can of PVC cement, some
foam padding and a roll of step and ladder tread- gritty-
textured stuff with adhesive backing for sticking on ladder
steps. Any soft, springy, non-absorbent material will do
for padding. Also get a can or tube of marine gear grease
or white lithium and a packet of medium grit sandpaper.
The only tools required are a rubber hammer or mal-
let and a scissors or utility knife.
Our case has a three-inch inside diameter. That's wide
enough for two four-piece fly rods, a two-piece spinning
rod and a one-piece casting rod, each in its own soft bag.
The tube is six feet long. End caps and adaptor collar
add four inches. Empty, it weighs about 8-1/2 pounds.

At the helm: 'life is but a dream' on the water taxi
This is one in a series of special features visiting .
landmarks and wei streets along South Florida's water-
ways. This month's feature takes a look at working on
the water with the Water Taxi Co. in Fort Lauderdale. I
;-!1 lk :7 -'---F'-


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
When Capt. B.A. "Smokey" Brown leaves the boat
where he lives each morning to get aboard the boat where he
works, he's never quite sure what might happen.
Where else can you get a great job like this?" Brown
says, as he looks-out the window from his elevated driver's
seat and notes how "it's just another beautiful day."
Brown is among a team of water taxi operators who fer-
ries people to work, on sightseeing excursions, or those who
simply want to get about Fort Lauderdale.
"It's my job to move people and to make the experience
as positive as possible," said Brown, who's been a boat cap-
tain for the Water Taxi Co. for the past three years.
The yellow and green boats (the colors are meant to
replicate the original checkered taxi cab colors), travel along
the Intracoastal and New River.
"I got on at my hotel and have used it all day to get
around and see the city," said Marjorie Brown, a London
tourist riding on Brown's boat, an enclosed 72-passenger air
conditioned craft.
A California couple said they opted for the water bus
because they didn't want to "fight traffic and parking costs"
and also because the vessel offers a good view of sites
along the way.
"Our purpose is transportation," said Brown, a retired
airline pilot who lives aboard his own 43-foot boat.
He's often asked about things along the route.
Questions like, "who lives in that house? How deep is
the water? What kind of people can afford these big hous-
es?" all keep Brown and his first mate, Mike Collins,
busy talkers.
"If we can answer their questions and make the ride
more enjoyable for them, then that's what we want to do,"
said Collins, a retiree who enjoys working with people and
hopes to earn his own captain's license some day.
Collins gets to work around 8 a.m. to make sure the boat
is clean and ready to go when the captain arrives around 9

a.m. The two then welcome aboard their first guests and
begin the set route docking from point to point until they
end their day at 5 p.m.
"Working on this beautiful water is the best," said
Brown. "And we're always happy when locals get on board
and realize the beauty that they never would see from their
car windows."
Also, traveling by boat is a lot easier on the nerves, he
says, keeping people away from the busy and noisy local
streets.
Collins said passengers run an equal mix of tourists and
locals. During the annual Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, the
boats fill to maximum capacity.
Owner Bob Berkoffjust chuckles and shakes his head
when he recalls putting his first boat into the water 14
years ago.


"We only had three boats then and passengers had to
call us to schedule a time to be picked up."
Little did know what he started.
He estimates that the fleet of 17 boats will have carried
a record 400,000 passengers in 2002. In September alone,
the passenger total tripled from last year's 5,300 to more
than 16,000 this year.
"I knew we had a potential to serve a need, but never
did I expect it to be this big," said Berkoff, president and
general manager of Water Taxi Co., which operates under a
new name of Water Bus as part of the Broward County Mass
Transit System.
Berkoff said there's no other location in the nation that
has such a compact series of waterways.'He sees the 300
miles of local canals as "wet streets" being used to transport
people every day of the year.
While the company has tried a variety of programs to
meet consumer needs and encourage use of the waterways,

Where in the world can

you sue Carmen San Diego?


By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Writer
Among the software from the early
1990s is the popular "Where in the World
is Carmen San Diego," which was usual-
ly added to the initial software mix by
parents in the feeble hope that it would
prevent their children from wasting the
entire day playing "Donkey Kong" and
"Space Invaders."
In the game, the character named
Carmen is an international spy, and based
on the clues such as what Carmen is
eating, or which mountain she is climb-
ing you have to figure out where she
is located in order to capture her.
In some ways, figuring out where
one can sue in a maritime legal action can
be very much like the Carmen Santiago
game, except that it's generally easier to
come to a conclusion in the game.
Because boats travel all over the
country and all over the world, incidents
leading to a maritime legal action can
occur virtually anywhere there is enough
water to accommodate vessels in the
stream of interstate or international com-
merce.
This can sometimes make the deci-
sion of where such an incident should be
filed challenging.There are guideposts as
to where a maritime case should be filed
with a court, but, as you may see, it is not
always concrete.
When laIjers first look at where
they might file a maritime case they must
also look at what type of case it is e.g.,
passenger injuries are viewed and han-
dled differently from seaman injuries, as
are cargo damage cases from a basic hull
collision case.
After that, a review must be made
concerning what other factors might
effect where a case can be filed, includ-
ing the location of the occurrence, the


nationality of the vessel, the nationality
and residence of the plaintiffs, place of
business of the vessel owners, substantial
contacts of a business in a particular
venue, and any contracts which might be
valid for determining venue.
How these factors may or may not
come together can be seen in these fol-
lowing examples:
Let's say, hypothetically, a U.S. citi-
zen books a vacation from an agent in
South Florida to take a boat trip in the
South China Sea. The vacationing pas-
senger is injured while on the vessel,
which happens to be registered in China
and has never docked at any U.S. port,
and the vessel owners have no substan-
tial connections to the U.S.
So, even though this passenger first
contracted his voyage in America, it will
probably be very difficult for him to bring
a suit against the vessel and its owners in
the United States due to the location of
the incident and those involved, as well as
the owners' and vessel's lack of substan-
tial contacts to the U.S.
This scenario would be especially
true if the passenger's ticket contains a
clause placing the "choice of forum"
somewhere else than in the United States.
Contractual agreements can also
affect foreign crewmen who might other-
wise be able to seek remedies in the U.S.
For example, Filipino seamen who were
injured while working on a Cypriot-
flagged vessel were told that they had to
take theirbcase to the Philippines' courts,
even though the incident occurred while
the vessel was in the territorially waters
of Louisiana, because of a clause in their
original employment contract.
Now, if these seamen hadn't had
such a clause, it is quite possible

Learning the steps o

the negotiator's dan

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
Who has ever been to a boat show and
taken time to watch, or better yet, partici-
pate in "the negotiator's dance"? Two
turns, a grunt and a snort it is so simple
like the jitterbug, it plum evades me!
But having been there and done that, I
have stood in the shadows and observed a
certain method in the madness that seems
to perpetuate itself to my personal dismay.
It takes some practice to spot the telltale
signs, but with a little patience you too will
be able to ID (and avoid) unscrupulous
performers in the crowd.
Some of the boat-buying and boat-
selling players are either very happy too
happy with the product line they are sell-
ing, or they are very critical too critical in
fact, of perceived imperfections in the deal
they seek to obtain.
Today especially, sellers are compet-
ing so aggressively for your business that
"puffing" (promotional over-representa-
tions) can be elevated to a level that reach-
es downright comical.
On the other hand, these days buyers
are acting so opportunistic with their nego-
tiating tactics and unfounded demands that
a seller asleep at the wheel could end up
paying the buyer to take his brand new
yacht home.
What's the result? Disappointed buy-
ers and unprofitable sellers. As always,
however, I believe'there is a solution.
Recognizing that nobody gives any-
thing away for less than its relative value is
sound logic. A lot goes into fabricating a
mold, building a vessel and delivering it all
shiny and squeaky clean. It is a labor of
love that costs time and money to success-
fully complete, and buyers need to have a
basic understanding and appreciation for
what goes on behind the scenes.
However, by no means should a "you


get what you pay for" adage exclusively
govern a final purchase decision
I like Bill O'Reilly's approach in the
"No Spin Zone" from Fox's-"The O'Reilly
Factor"... tell the truth, dang-it, and let the
chips fall where they may! Sellers, give me
real facts about the boat, spare me the
hoopla and hogwash and let me decide to
purchase or pass based on solid data.
Likewise, buyers, do not be insulting
with blind and baseless offers that serve
no purpose but to poison the well. Ethical
and honest negotiations from both sides
would do wonders for the whole experi-
ence of buying and selling boats.
The way I see it, anyone looking to
get into the world of boat ownership is
kidding himself (or herself) if the pre-
dominant goal is merely to squeak every
last dollar out of a deal, arguing that the
end will justify the means.
A buyer should know what he's get-
ting into and make a list of the items and
the expectations that are important to him
before ever pulling up to the negotiating
table. If it were purely price that drives
one's decision, then that captain would
probably be better off playing tennis in
his spare time.
Boating is an expensive pastime and
quality is a must for all things "that go"
on the water. Anything less than "better
than average" is probably going to leave
a new owner disappointed when expecta-
tions in performance and equipment
don't quite measure up to what he bar-
gained for.
This is not to suggest that buyers
should ante .up without an effective and
meaningful negotiation. If one is familiar
with the options and variable qualities that
exist among manufacturers and models,
then by all means he should deal honestly

"This is a very complicated issue," Katz said.
Katz said about 98 percent of the property owners who
could be affected by the ordinance live in her district, which
covers eastern Fort Lauderdale from Sunrise Boulevard
north to the Pompano Beach boundary line.
"The city staff and the city attorney need to hear what
the residents have to say," Katz said. "Each time this ordi-
nance has come up, it negatively affects certain homes.
People who are impacted should understand the conse-
quences and make their feelings known."
The proposed ordinance has been deferred several
times, Lekavich said. "When I show my information on the
formula that the city wants to put into law, everyone who has
seen it has been shocked," he said.
Lekavich believes that many homeowners are unaware
of the ordinance and its impact. He claims the proposed
ordinance will also impede safe navigational access to. the

affected homes because the neighboring properties on either
side will be allowed larger boats that will stick out and pin
in the owner of the center lot.
"They need to come to the public hearing or contact
their commissioner," he said.
Welch disputes Lekaviclfs claim about safe navigational
access. "The thing that seems to get swept under the rug, in
our permit reviews we do not see a vessel in the plans for a
dock or lift that the homeowner wants to install," Welch
said.
The mooring of the vessel is governed by another sec-
tion in the code and the homeowner .has to be aware that
they can only use 30 percent of the channel width for their
boat, he said.
"That's the fundamental problem we are having with
the end properties because their property lines, as they
approach the waterway, are not parallel' Welch said. "What
Mr. Lekavich is failing to state is that all property owners
will be limited to the same 30 percent width of channel."

Navigating canals sely b atNOVEMBER 2002


Navigating canals safely beneath Dade's low bridges


one small boat, are in Griffing Park, a little North Miami city
facility where West Dixie Highway crosses Northeast 121st
Street and Griffing Boulevard. Driving by on the street; you
may have noticed the Jaycees meeting hall, but missed the
ramp beside it.
The ramp has a padlocked gate. You have to buy a per-
mit and key $50 a year if you live in the city of North
Miami, $100 if you don't. It's too much for occasional cruis-
es, but worth it to a frequent fisherman.
For details, call the city clerk's office at 305-893-6511,
extension 2141 or 2142.
Because of the parking lot's configuration, the ramp is
unusually steep, ending in an abrupt angle. Beyond that, the
underwater portion has a moderate pitch. It gave our trailer
a little more than 15 feet of grace to the dropoff, which can't
be seen through the dark water.
A standard sedan can handle all that easily with an alu-
minum bass boat or small skiff on a single-axle trailer. Our
20-footer is a hefty fiberglass sea-goer on a double-axle
trailer, impossible to pull back up the ramp except with a
four-wheel drive truck and heavy-duty clutch. Launching
and retrieving are awkward.
They're worth the bother, though. Other than good fish-
ing, the Biscayne Canal provides-an interesting urban-sub-
urban cruise through some of northern Miami-Dade's most
attractive towns (Miami Shores, Biscayne Park, Miami
Lakes) and the most dismal one, Opa-locka.
There are no marine charts for the canals, but a good

street map will do. We use the newest version of Rand
McNally's Miami Metro city map. It draws the canal system
more clearly than the major roads.
Start your cruise by running a mile downstream from
the ramp, through the villages of Biscayne Park and Miami
Shores, where the canal is a golf course water hazard. A
flood control lock stops you there, a mile and a quarter from
Biscayne Bay. We can't confirm rumors that the golf course
is a snook and tarpon hangout, but we know both species
can be found far upstream.
Half a mile west of the bridge where Danny Good was
clobbered, the good fishing starts on your left in a nameless
lake, a mile long and a quarter-mile wide. On the east shore-
line is Biscayne Gardens, where homesites are as long as
515 feet. Some have private launching ramps. One has a sea-
plane hangar,
We've caught butterfly peacock, seen tarpon and met a
man who caught a three-foot snook there with a reliable wit-
ness. Look for largemouth bass, too especially in the
grasses and lilies along the west side.
If you're fishing, try to get there early, before the
appearance of certain water-skiers whose sport is unless
unless they're spoiling someone else's.
At the top of the lake, head west under State Road 9 and
Tri-Rail, remembering to hunker down. Also take it slow
and duck under the bridges on Northwest 22nd and 27th

avenues.
Soon you'll be cruising along the north edge of Opa-
locka Airport. Lake Karen, ahead on the right, is a good fish-
ing spot. Across Red Road, you'll enter the town of Miami
Lakes. Spend some time fishing Lake Ruth, the first one,
before resuming your canal ride through the residential
neighborhoods and golf course to the Palmetto Expressway.
On the map, the canal doesn't go under the highway there,
but in real life it does.
Downstream, south of Northwest 154th Street, there is
good fishing for butterfly peacock. Slowly work your way
to the end, where westbound 1-75 approaches its Northwest
138th Street interchange.
There the canal swims through a tiny culvert at the base
of a high embankment with Galloway Road (Northwest
87th Avenue) on top. Theoretically, with scuba gear you
could swim through it too, then go 2.75 miles more to the
Biscayne Canal's intersection with Okeechobee Road and
the Miami Canal.
Never mind. Instead, drive out there and see if you can
find a way to get a boat in the water west of Galloway. If you
succeed, tell us.
One other thing: If you know Danny Good, thank him
for his contribution to this report. Tell him we hope he's still
O.K. Don't tease him about his spelling.

Non-profit groups seek boat donations to keep programs on course


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Whether it's chucking a cabin cruiser or scraping a
sailboat, there are several local nonprofit organizations
that will take donations of unwanted vessels.
Groups are using the boats they receive for a variety
of programs, from teaching seamanship skills to at-risk
teens to conducting water sports activities for people with
disabilities.
Ezra Culver, marine trade school director of Shake-A-
Leg in Coconut Grove, said his group will consider just
about any type of vessel so long as it seaworthy.
Shake-A-Leg, a nonprofit organization that provides
water sports activities such as sailing and kayaking class-
es to the general community and people with physical dis-
abilities, will also accept boats that need minor repairs, he
said.
The vessels are always put to good use. Presently, the
organization has one sailboat and one powerboat, both
donated, being used in vessel restoration classes for pub-
lic high school students.
Other donated boats are used for water sports pro-
grams, he said.
Over the past three months, Culver has gotten an
average of one call every two weeks from an owner want-
ing to donate his or her vessel. But not every boat is
accepted.
"I've had to turn away boats that are unusable," he
said.
Of those who do make offers, Culver believes many
people want their.boats going to someplace worthwhile.
"That seems to make them very happy and comfort-


able about their gift," he said.
The donations can also be a tax write off, said Susan
Engle, founder and president of CEERI, Inc. in Fort
Lauderdale.
CEERI stands for Center for Environmental
Education and Research Inc. The nonprofit group spon-
sors the Boater 101 and Swim 101 programs and will take
boats of any type, Engle said.
The group needs vessels for its on-water, hands-on
boating skills classes; taught at various locations through-
out Broward County. The organization prefers po%\er-
boats, primarily single-engine outboards, she said.
"But it would be wonderful if we could get something
larger," said Engle, whose group currently has the use of
eight new boats, all on loan from manufacturers.
Not every donated boat has to be seaworthy. CEERI
has several sponsors in the marine industry. If a boat was
donated in unusable condition, the group could turn to its
partners and ask for repairs, she said.
Jack McQuestion, executive director of the Florida
Ocean Sciences Institute in Fort Lauderdale, said his non-
profit group accepts boat donations too.
The institute, also known as FOSI, offers rehabilita-
tive services for at-risk teens. The regular school curricu-
lum includes classes on seamanship and aquatics,
McQuestion.
The organization, which was founded in 1969, will
take all makes and models. But the vessels should be trail-
erable and in operable condition, he said.
Participants in the program are responsible for doing
minor repair and maintenance on the boats, he said.
"FOSI does not have dock space for in-water dona-


U Pe


tions or the funds for major repairs," McQuestion said. "If
we can't use the boat in the program or afford to fix it, the
organization will sell it."
Over the years, the group has run its seamanship
classes on donated boats from individuals. The organiza-
tion now has one powerboat and one sailboat being used
for classes, McQuestion said.
"We don't have the resources to get a new boat, so we
rely on the community," he said. "Seamanship is part of
the program that provides the kids with a non-traditional
and outdoor education. It's like a vocational experience.
It's been essential to their rehabilitation."
Another charitable organization that boat owners
might want to consider is the Salvation Army. The non-
profit group takes boats in seaworthy .condition.
Representatives from the organization will pick up the
vessels.
The organization receives between 30 to 35 vessels a
year. Boats are sold to support a drug and dcohol rehabil-
itation center for adult men. Donated vessels and cars are
auctioned off at 8 a.m. the first Saturday of each month, at
the Salvation Army headquarters, 1901 W. Broward Blvd.
in Fort Lauderdale.

7707; the Florida Ocean Sciences Institute in Fort
Lauderdale at 954-764-2733; the Salvation Army at

it wasn't until two years ago when Broward County
obtained a $2.1 million federal grant to help buy new and
larger boats that things took off.
"Werve seen a 212 percent increase in riders," said
Berkoff, who believes the company has reduced street auto
traffic while teaching about the low cost and comfort of
using the waterway system for transportation.
Broward's money helped buy eight new 72-passenger
boats that aue enclosed d and ir-conditioned. They, along with
Water Taxi's nine other boat_, most of which are open air, fol-
low a set schedule of -tops ithat extend northward up the
Intracoastal as far as Oakland Park Boulevard, south to the
17th Street Causeway, westward along the New River to the
Broward Performing Arts Center, and east to State Road AIA.
The boats begin work at 9 a.m. and end at 12:30 a.m.
There are 21 stops, some only a few minutes apart, and pas-
sengers pay a $5 flat fee to ride all day getting off and on
wherever they choose. There are other discount rates for
longer passes. It takes two hours to complete a full circle,
returning to the original point of embarkation.
S"We wouldn't have been able to expand the service at
such a reasonable fare without the county subsidy," says

Capt. B.A. "Smokey" Brown, left, chats with first mate,
Mike Collins, as they transport passengers on the water bus.
Berkoff, who sees long-term potential in encouraging peo-
ple to get out of their cars.
The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors
Bureau is currently pushing a Riverwalk Arts and
Entertainment "Sunsational Passport" that offers unlimited
use of the water bus for a week at a rate of $48. Included in
the package is 50 percent off of any ticket to the Broward
Center for Performing Arts.
And the chance to draw more people is growing, says
Berkoff, as residential units are built along the New River. A
$99 annual pass allowing unlimited use is expected to be
available soon.
A survey is now under way to obtain local residents'
thoughts about the service to see what else can be done to
make its use more attractive.
"We are so fortunate to have the water system we have
here and if any city can serve as a model of how best to use
it as mass transportation, we can," said Berkoff.

until you can slip the other parts over them with some
effort short of brute force.
Now cut a three-inch circle of thick foam padding.
Cram it into the closed-end cap. A few drops of household.
glue will hold it in place.
Next, dab a generous amount of PVC cement around
the outside of one end of the tube-about a two-inch
length, if that's how deep the cap is. Slide the cap onto the
tube. Use the rubber hammer to tap it firmly into place.
Work quickly; the cement sets pretty fast.
Then repeat that procedure at the opposite end with
the adaptor collar. It's half plain and half threaded on the
inside. Make sure you cement the plain half over the'/ube.
For leak protection, cement the edges where the cap and
collar join the tube.
Now for the finishing touches:
Thoroughly grease the screw threads in the collar and
on the end cap before closing. Without grease, it will be
too hard to open and close.
Finally, wrap a strip of ladder and stair tread around
the collar. This will give you a firm grip when it's time to
open the case with the wrench or pliers. A few strips
wrapped around the tube will make it easier to carry in
and out of the airport terminal.

A) A strip of stair and ladder tread provides a gripping surface while tightening or opening the end cap with wide-
jaw pliers. B) Grease on the screw threads makes end cap easier to loosen and tighten. C) The completed case. Full
length is six feet, four inches. Empty weight is 8-1/2 pounds.


You can stick permanent padding on the inside of the
screw cap, but it isn't necessary. Instead, after loading
your rods, fill the empty end space with a wadded-up
sheet or two of air conditioner filter foam- a cheap, effi-
cient material. In addition to padding the end, it will keep
your rods from rattling around when those gentle-handed
baggage guys apply their soft touch.


Afterthought: Can airport vandals open that end cap
with a wrench or pliers? Sure, and they can cut it off with
a saw, but all that takes time, tools and effort which you
can increase by wrapping several turns of duct tape
around the cap and over the big nut.
You can't make vandalism impossible, but you can
make it mighty difficult.

Charismatic Charleston: marvelous meals and maritime history


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Walking Charleston's tree-lined streets, visitors discov-
er some of America's most beautifully preserved English
and Caribbean architecture, historical treasures and gardens
that shoulder the narrow, cobblestone streets of this 330 year
old city.
Located in South Carolina's Low Country, Charleston
sits four miles from the Atlantic on a slender peninsula
shaped by the Ashley and Cooper rivers. The waterways
offer amazing eye candy.
For centuries, Low Country dwellers built canoes,
schooners and barges for both personal use and commerce.
Today, a cluster of local boat-building companies and the
South Carolina Maritime Foundation help make up a local
marine community.
The foundation has begun building a magnificent tall
ship, the Spirit of South Carolina, a pilot schooner reminis-
cent of the circa 1870s Frances Elizabeth.
The Spirit is being built from recycled live oak, long
leaf pine, and other fine shipbuilding wood. Its primary mis-
sion will be to provide sail training and maritime education-
al opportunities for South Carolina youth.
Charleston has been home to the Tall Ships 2000 and
the 1998 Around Alone Race. Boaters will find most of
Charleston's marinas reside on the Ashley river on the
western shore.
The Battery, on the waterfront along the edge of the
city's historic district, offers striking views of the harbor and
a collection of charming houses known as Rainbow Row.
They are easy to recognize with their wrought-iron work
and whimsical rainbow colors.
Here you'll find the distinctive residential style known
as the single house: a narrow structure one room wide and
two rooms deep with its gabled end, rather than the front,
facing the street. The homes often include a piazza, a ver-
sion of a eranda. built before the advent of air conditioning
to capture river breezes.
Some homes have been left %ith remnants of earth-
quake rods installed after a massive quake rocked the city in
the 1880s. The rods indicate post-Civil War structures.
Named for the English King Charles in 1670,

VISITORS CONVENTION
& VISITORS BUREAU
Located in South
Carolina's Low Country,
Charleston sits four miles-
from the Atlantic on a
slender peninsula shaped
by the Ashley and Cooper
rivers. The waterways
offer amazing eye candy.


Charleston has often played a pivotal role in the course of
American history. A vigorous port and prosperous and fash-
ionable colonial town, Charleston was the site of the first
decisive Patriot victory during the Revolution at Fort
Moutrie on Sulhan n Island.
Nearby the initial shots of the Civil War were fired
upon the Union troops stationed at Fort Sumter in
Charleston Harbor
Through occupation, economic hardship, fires, earth-


.quakes and hurricanes, Charleston has battled back to
become stronger, even more vibrant. The town lends itself
to walking, and visitors find lovely formal gardens
throughout the historic district, adding to the beauty of the
colonial, antebellum and Victorian architecture. Some
notable attractions include the Old Exchange and Provost
Dungeon, the Gibbes Museum, the Aiken-Rhett house and
the Nathaniel Russell house.
Be sure to visit the quaint antique shops along King
Street, and browse for hand-made seaweed baskets and
other crafts at the City Market.

We can clean your fuel and remove water and contaminants
from the bottom and sides of your marine fuel tanks.
DON'T ALLOW BAD FUEL TO KILL
YOUR MARINE DIESEL & GASOLINE
MOTORS AND FUEL PUMPS!
When your boat is sitting in the slip, the microbes are multiplying in
the bottom of the fuel tanks. Fuel filters don't work unless the engine
is running. These filters don't stand a chance against the water and
contaminants such as varnish, rust and silt (just to name a few) and
pouring products into your tank to kill microbes simply leaves their
dead bodies to accumulate on the bottom and sides of your tanks.
Our Brand New state of the art portable Fuel Polishing
system is capable of removing water and contaminants
to less then 1 micron or over 99% from your boats
diesel and gasoline tanks. This is highly superior to
other marine fuel polishing and filtering systems.
We provide dockside service at your dock or marina
and removal of fuel is not necessary our system is
a high pressure "closed loop" causing contaminants
to loosen prior to filtering, requiring no fluid
removal and providing an environmentally friendly
and safe reclaim. NO-spills or disposal costs.

Hisrical tll sip big rd in C lNOVEMBER 2002


Historical tall ship being recreated in Charleston, S.C.


The town's restaurants range from southern-style to
five-star French to the simple delight of the tried-and-true
Low country staple the fish sandwich. It's a slab of fish,
buttered and fried and drizzled with tartar sauce, served pip-
ing hot between slices of white bread.
Charleston's many chic restaurants rely on local boun-
ty, serving herb-encrusted and chutney-glazed seafood dish-
es. One of the trendiest eateries is the Terrace at Marion
Square. Located on the top of Millennium Music at the cor-
ner of King and Calhoun streets, it's got a happening atmos-
phere, good food and a cool view of the historic district.
An eclectic menu focuses on smoked salmon, chicken,
steaks along with less filling "small items." A retractable roof
and natural gas heaters are new additions to this rooftop spot.
Located in the newly opened French Quarter Inn,
Tristan's signature dishes include imported lamb chops with
a fig demi-glace, mint chutney marmalade, rosemary ched-
dar grits and French Quarter warm beignets.with a banana
fudge liquid center.
People flock to. McCrady's Wine Bar in the heart of
town on East Bay Street for its "boutique" or "garage"
wines, and an impressive list of Rhone and Rhone-styles. A
sexy ambiance is felt from the bar's earth-tone color
scheme, dark cypress wood, copper-screened ceiling and
local artwork on display.


Photo/CHARLESTON AREA VISITORS
CONVENTION & VISITORS BUREAU
Charleston, S.C. lends itself to
walking, and visitors find lovely
formal gardens throughout the
historic district, adding to the
beauty of the colonial, antebellum
and Victorian architecture.


In a twist to the area's historic house tours, visitors can
sample the Low country's fine cuisine in private homes dur-
ing the third annual Charleston Entertains Kitchen Tour, tak-
ing place the weekend of Nov. 15-16.
Then why not stop at the South Carolina Aquarium to
explore the state's complete range of aquatic habitats: moun-


tain streams, rivers, lakes and salt marshes rushing out to the
depths of the Atlantic. Otters, snakes, turtles, birds, jellyfish
and sharks are just some of the 10,000 creatures showing up
in 60 educational exhibits.

Take a lifetime of
experience onboard


Over the last 51 years Ward's Marine Electric has
been invited onboard more fine crafts than
any other company of electrical specialists in the
Southeastern United States. Some of our ABYC certi-
fied electricians are working on some lady of the sea, in
some far off port, every week of the year. Sure, it took
us a lifetime to become known as the electrical special-
ists of the yachting world, and it's something we're
awfully proud of, but our greatest source of pride is
being invited onboard as an electrical specialist... only
to be invited back as a friend.
