Visiting


Stiltsville

Boat club holds tours of
Biscayne Bay clubhouse
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Chances are that if you have a boat in the Miami area,
you've run it through Stiltsville, that funky colony of cabins
standing like seabirds onr the Biscayne Shoals, south of Key
Biscayne. :
Chances are you were startled the first time you saw it.
On a calm sunny day at slack tide, the seven houses still
there seem to float on air, hovering above their own reflec-
tions. On a midweek day with little boat traffic, you can gaze
from northwest to southeast, with city buildings in the back-
ground, and almost see another planet out there.
Dreamy? Stick around and we'll take you vicariously
aboard a Stiltsville cabin, the clubhouse of the Miami
Springs Power Boat Club. We'll show you around and tell
you how to get an invitation for your civic, charitable or
other organization.
S Some day, if the quibbling ever ends, you'll be able to
get on any of the houses because Stiltsville has been
absorbed into Biscayne National Park. For now, building
owners are allowed to control access and maintain the prop-
erties.
The Power Boat Club, which also does business as the
Stiltsville Optimist Club and Save Old Stiltsville, is trying to
increase its public accessibility. They host two or three
groups a month, among them scouts and school classes -
and are eager to do more.
Club leaders also talk of establishing a sea-science base
for the University of Miami and NOAA, the federal agency
in charge of weather, oceanography and such.
Jacking up visitor statistics is sure to win them public

support, they hope.
Stiltsville was even more impressive in the good old
days before Hurricane Andrew. Or before Hurricanes Betsy,
or Donna. Then, fish in Biscayne Bay were so thick you
could walk on their backs like stepping-stones across the
deep channels. On the shallow shoals, you had to kick 'em
out of the way.
Scoff not. Once those shoals supported 27 stilt houses,
a dazzling sight. One of them, nearest to the Cape Florida
lighthouse, held the transmission tower of a Miami radio sta-
tion, WOCN. Near the other end of that channel, a peculiar
inverted cone on a platform was part of the aircraft guidance
system. Quite a way south of there, another was painted
orange and aquamarine.
On a slightly choppy day in mid-February, the
Waterfront News wangled an invitation from officers of the
SMiami Springs Power Boat Club, which also wears the caps
and tee shirts of the Stiltsville Optimist Club same outfit,
two names.

An approaching boat frames the
Stiltsville house of the Miami
Springs Power Boat Club, also
called Stiltsville Optimist Club.
The place, built in the early
1950s, is going through an
awkward transition to control by
Biscayne National Park, which
owns this portion of Biscayne Bay
south of Key Biscayne. The club
still runs the house one of
S seven that survived Hurricane
Andrew and wants to make it
available to more civic and
charitable groups, scout troops
7 and the like.



Mack Wiggins 1II, a gray-haired ex-child who practi-
cally grew up in the clubhouse, got Pat Roach to take us out
there on his 23-foot Dusky, the Marjory-D.
"Every weekend I'd go out here when I was a kid,"
Wiggins reminisced. "My mother, my father, myself. A lot
of members of the club used it like a base camp for fishing
and diving. I must have been 11 or 12. The docks have been
rebuilt but the house is pretty much the way I remember it."
The clubhouse, apparently the only stilt cabin owned by
an organization, is easy to spot a double-decker that's yel-
low on one side and blue on the other, a couple of channels
south of the nearest neighbor. It's the one with the most
dockage, about 180 linear feet.
On the lower deck are restrooms, a diesel-fired genera-
tor that runs a 110-volt electrical system, picnic tables,
freshwater cisterns and other facilities. On the upper deck, a
49-by-20 foot wooden building encloses a comfortably fur-

Fishing school of thought: never stop learning
Arostegui family sets /
state and world records .,* / /


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
"Ten percent of the fishermen catch 90 percent of the
fish," Martin Arostegui will remind you if you get him start-
ed. Don't quibble about statistical precision. You know what
he means, unless you think he's talking about luck..
Luck is tossing bait or a lure into the water and hoping
for a bite. Arostegui can't recall the last time he did that: "A
long time ago. It doesn't work."
Ninety percent of the fish? Look up the records of the
International Game Fish Association, the South Florida
Metropolitan Tournament and the list of Florida state
records, and you get the idea that Marty Arostegui, his wife
Roberta and their kids, Martini and Danielle, catch 90 per-
cent.
They don't, of course. They only catch 90 percent of the
biggest ones, or so it seems. A list of all their state and world
records, past and present, fresh water and salt, in every tack-
le category, wouldn't fit in the Sunday New York Times.
On the IGFA list alone, the four Arostegui have col-
lected 98 records dating from Feb. 6, 1997, when Martin
caught a 23-pound king mackerel on a fly with a six-pound-
test tippet. He has 39 of the family's 98 records; Danielle,
age 12, has 18, Martini, age 10, has 26. By the time you read
this, they'll likely hold a few more.
Their mom, Roberta, has 15 records. "I was fishing
before I met him," she says. "Now I'm catching."
Martin Arostegui owes his success partly to intuitive
skill and partly to practice and study. The lines between
those factors grew blurry long ago.
What does he do differently from the rest of us? Lots of
little things, but after spending four hours with him one
afternoon I know the one big thing:
Arostegui learns. He never stops.
Alan Zaremba, a Hollywood guide who specializes in
fishing the canals, can tell you about that. They met when
Arostegui, who already had won a 1997 grand master's title
in the South Florida Metropolitan Tournament, was fishing

for a spot in the Met's hall of fame. That requires 10 species,
all at high minimum weights, caught according to strict
tackle criteria.
"One of the fish I needed to catch was a largemouth
bass on plug," Arostegui remembered. "So a friend of mine
recommended that I go fishing with Alan Zaremba."
Of course Arostegui got that six-pounder. It started a
long association with Zaremba, who remembers that day
well.
"We fished out by the Indian reservation on the Alley.
To me he was basically a saltwater fisherman and had trou-
ble setting the hook bass-style. Thus he missed a lot of fish.
What impressed me was that he looked at it like a student,
and over a period of time setting the hook became second

lMartini Arostegui, age Uv,
caught this 70-pound
blacktip shark on a fly with
Key West guide Ralph
Delph. The boy's dad called
Delph two days ahead of the
trip. Delph said shark action
was hot. They rigged an 8-
pound test line with a strip
of barracuda flesh for lemon

pound tippet for blacktips.
With the fly rod, Martini

nature for him. He is always organized and sets his goals,
then strives for the result he wants, and he is no quitter."
I picked Arostegui's brain for information. Let's
squeeze in as many paragraphs as we can of him, telling us
how to be better fishermen:
"You've got to pay your dues. For example, say you buy
a small aluminum boat with a light engine and you go to
Flamingo [in Everglades National Park]. If you go once in a
blue moon, you're not going to know where the fish are or
what's going on. But if you make a concerted effort to go to
Flamingo once a week, after a month or two you start learn-
ing what are the better times to fish and so on. But basically
you've got to put in the time and pay your dues.
'This is also very important: when I go out with guides
and other people who know an area well, I ask a lot of ques-
tions.

Fisherman tops records with skill,


"I think it's all about practice. I have a friend that buys
every expensive piece of equipment that comes out, but he
doesn't practice so when he goes out there, he's not using
what he has to the best of his ability.
"Almost any equipment there is will work if you learn
how to use it. You've got to learn your area. You've got to
ask people that have been there. You've got to leam your
area and pay your dues. And I think it helps to stick to a
method and an area until you learn it well.
"Fishing is all about learning what the variables are that
are applicable to the area you fish. For example, the temper-
ature of the water, the current, the moon phase, the time of
the year. These things apply to what you're trying to do.
"For example, I know that in the month of March and
the month of April, there are certain wrecks in front of Key
Biscayne that have permit. But if I go at another time of year
they are not going to be there.
"It was a combination of figuring it out and somebody
telling me. They're coming in there to spawn. Two years ago
at the right moon phase, we were on this wreck at Key
Biscayne, catching one permit after another in the 20 to 30-
pound range on crabs. And boats are coming by and seeing
us in the back of my boat with our rods bent and they stop
around us...and throw their baits in the water and then won-
der how come we're catching fish and they're not. They
weren't over the wreck.
"Some people have an inborn ability to figure out fish-
ing situations more than most, and some of those become
very successful guides. For example, Bouncer Smith knows
what's happening here in Miami. It's a combination of years
of hard work and innate ability. There are people who put in
the time and don't achieve success.
"When nothing's happening offshore, do something
else, like deep jigging for tile fish. They bite chunks of bait.
If you have an alternative, especially if you have a guest or
something, try it."
"If you're fishing for bass and you see a bed, throw the
fly or jig a little beyond the bed and retrieve it across. the
bed."
Arostegui does about 80 percent of his fishing where


Coral Gables fisherman Martin Arostegui, disguised in
dark glasses and a river runner's sweatshirt, fooled this
traira with a fly on the Rio Tapera in Brazil. The fish's
body resembles a mudfish. Its facial profile may remind
you of a fresh water trout. In Arostegui's right hand: a

you do, in South Florida waters. He also goes as far south as
Brazil, as far north as Alaska, and before he goes he leams
all he can.
In Brazil, early in February, he fished a tributary of the
Amazon for butterfly peacock. He didn't get a lot of action
on those, but had a great time anyway. It started with prepa-
ration -research before he left his house in Coral
Gables:
"I learned all kinds of stuff about different Amazon fish;
learned things most people don't know anything about. And


O


practice study
when I showed up, I knew a lot more about fishing in the
Amazon than most of the people who were fishing there
already. I ended up entering three different species for
records-a traira, ajijun and a matrincha. I'd never seen any
of them but the traira, which looks something like a Florida
mudfish."
While fishing with Zaremba, Arostegui has set several
records for catching the humble, ubiquitous oscar on flies.
You throw oscars back, don't we all? So does
Arostegui, but he weighs them first. We've probably caught
bigger ones, but he's the one with his name in the record
book. Those records were vacant until he claimed them.
Oscar records don't define his fishing career. This is not
merely a guy who sees record-book vacancies on junk fish
as a ticket to micro-glory. His. Met titles alone make him a
giant in this sport. Even so, he enjoys holding records until
someone else breaks them.
How did he get that way?
"Many years ago, when I was fishing mostly offshore, I
would dream of catching a record fish. I always wanted to
catch a record fish. I started entering records in the Miami
Beach Rod and Reel Club. Then I became aware of IGFA
and started kind of focusing on that. All my life I'd been
very goal oriented, and I think I translated that personality
from business to fishing.
"Now I'm less interested in catching records for myself
than with my kids. But we also keep it fun. I don't put pres-
sure on them, or really on myself. I take the video camera,
take slides, take pictures of birds."
Arostegui is a doctor who made a fortune in business,
buying and managing the business side of other doctors' pri-
vate practices. The business grew, went public and was
bought out in a merger. Soon afterward, Arostegui decided
that line of work didn't have a long future. He cashed out,
retired young and rich, and devoted himself to family and
fishing.
He thinks he's changing; finding more pleasure now in
helping his wife and kids to records than in scoring them
himself. Maybe, but like a fish he has habits and instincts
that are predictable. If we too pay attention to vacant and
vulnerable records, pretty soon we'll catch Martin Arostegui
setting one.

The backyard

boatyard dilemr

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
I recently visited a business associate
at his waterfront home in Fort Lauderdale
and recall feeling like a.pauper as we tra-
versed from room to exquisite room, done
up in a wonderful nautical decor. I gawked
at the level of perfection those folks had
achieved with their beautiful home and
applauded his wife's taste, who accepted
full responsibility and authorship.
Moving to the pool deck, I felt as if we
had eased up to Haunama Bay in Hawaii,
with the sounds of waterfalls and the sub-
tle beams of recessed lights filling my
senses. Tikki flames flickered, a cool gen-
tle breeze cascaded through lush tropical
foliage and a hint of ginger was in the air.
Then a terrifying wail exploded into the
cool clear evening that resounded through
the property like an airplane crashing onto
the dock. I nearly jumped out of my skin as
the hosts sprang into action, hoisting their
massive sliding glass doors across the open-
air courtyard, slamming them shut with a
thud. They turned to face me with a look of
despair, and the ensuing apologetic explana-
tion was truly disturbing.
It seemed that Joe who lived next door
was still out of town, and the vessel renting
dockage behind his home was preparing for
the Miami Boat Show. The captain's con-
tracted crew had been grinding fiberglass;
running gas-powered air com esQ aind
Sciittiigwdcod for teak decks all week long.
-That explained the deafening wail that
continued as we spoke. It also explained
the vans and trucks I noticed cluttering up
their neighbor's front yard when I pulled
in earlier.
Some time later, we made our way
back to the dock where across the canal was
a half-sunk hulk of a vessel that resembled
a PT boat from "McCale's Navy."
The constant slurp of a bilge pump gar-


gling air and water was loud and annoying.
On the next dock over were two ragged-out
sailboats rafted loosely and rubbing against
each other with a screech like fingernails
dragging across a chalkboard.
On one, there was a half dressed man
the homeowners referred to as "Big
Foot" another moonlighting contractor
with no apparent regard for the neigh-
bors. Between swipes of his sandpaper,
he chugged beers and bee-bopped to a
thunderous base rap.
As we eased back into the Florida
room of their home, I reasoned that theirs
must be a uniquely absurd situation. But
I was quickly corrected, as the couple
recounted similar experiences' from
friends and relatives who also live on
Broward's waterways.
What must it be like to have invested
into a multi-million dollar waterfront
home that is surrounded by a bevy of
backyard boatyards?
Okay, I'm raising some dander right
now with folks who could make a list as
long as my arm with reasons why this is
a good thing (for them), and I respect
those opinions entirely. I'm. not so sure
that any of them are.consistent with the
law but I still respect them.
What I will never agree with, howev-
er, is the commercially flagrant disregard
-r fpr nighborsJ witnessed in th Jeart of a
residential waterfront commu'i1t .
I run a shipyard and, yes, I am biased!
But not in the way somemay think, though
SI would like nothing more than to see these
vessels paying dockage rates in a commer-
cial facility meant for that purpose.
Yet I also understand that if all those
vessels renting- space behind homes
decided (or were forced) to leave back-
yard dockage, I believe the marine indus-

try's long-term health in South Florida.
I have no tangible solution for this dilemma. But it
would seem that if reasonableness and responsibility gov-
erned this apparent loophole in the system, everything
would probably be okay.
The disturbing antics I witnessed at my associate's
home shouldn't have to be tolerated, and I hope that fam-
ily finds decisive relief. When things get out of balance,
the system starts to break down.


Too much of good thing could cause irreparable harm
to the industry as a whole. I hope that those who perform
work in alternative environments will recognize and
engage in a responsible standard that keeps the big picture
clearly in focus for everyone's benefit.

industry, is now president of Fort Lauderdale

Making yourself lawsuit proof:

dispelling myths and goofs


Even a foreign-owned and registered boat that has
acquired liability issues can usually.be legitimately arrest-
ed while in U.S. waters. It is also very possible that the
owner of such a vessel-can be served to answer to the
court at the same time, depending on the circumstances.
Similarly, outward signs of poverty may not be suffi-
cient to thwart a civil law suit. In many instances a suit in
admiralty has been known to take precedent over a bank-
ruptcy proceeding.
As I frequently point out, the vessel itself can become
a defendant in many maritime disputes sometimes
being held and eventually sold at auction to pay off on the
liability owed in a dispute.
Even exculpatory contract language is not a full guar-
antee for the prevention of civil suits. From time to time,
the courts' ideas can change as to what they interpret as
proper exculpatory language.
Moreover, a court could interpret that a specific inci-
dent is too onerous to allow the underlying liability creat-
ed b~y that situation to be exculpated by contract language.

It should also be noted that as a matter of public policy,
crewmen are never allowed to exculpate their rights as
Jones Act seamen. Therefore, even though a well-
designed contract is helpful, it is no panacea in avoiding
legal actions.
So, as you can see, though you might be able to find
a fully waterproof suit, you will probably never find your-
self fully "suit-proof' on the water.
When all is said and done, I believe your best course
of action to avoid the courtroom (along with just being
careful on the water and in your business dealings) is to
thoroughly discuss your liability potential with your
insurance agent, and possibly your legal professional.
By taking precautions, you could possibly discover
the comforting truth in another of Mr. Jagger's quotes: "If
you try sometime, you just might find you get what you
need!"

Everglades, airboat business struggle side by side to survive
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in a series of special features exploring
South Florida's waterfront landmarks. This month's
feature takes a look at what is said to be the oldest air-
boat operation in the Everglades.


COOPERTOWN Jesse Kennon, mayor of an
Everglades town that officially does not exist, says he's
struggling to hang on to his family boating business,
which could soon face its own demise.
In 1945 KeInon's relatives opened the Coopertown Air
Boat Rides alrid State' oute 41, about 11 miles west of the
Florida Turnpike -in western Dade within Everglades
National Paik. Itis-believed to have been the first such oper-
ation of itslitiid i the Everglades.
Now, nearly 58 years later, Kennon, 60, says it could
just be a matter of time before he closes shop.
"If things go my way, I could be around for another
20 years," he says. "But, if they get their way, I might be
out of here in three to five years."
"They" is the National Park Service, which oversees
operation of the national Everglades Park, and has for
years been slowly taking over private businesses and
tourist-related activities to better control what goes on
within the park.
Kennon has tried to legally stall efforts to force him
out of business, but says bureaucratic pressures continue
to press on. "We have a slight reprieve now, but we are
talking and negotiating so we will wait and see," he said.
Rick Cook, director of public relations for the
Everglades Park headquarters, said efforts are being made
to reach compromises with private landowners and busi-
nesses within the park.
In 1989 when Congress approved the expansion of
the Everglades by adding 109,600 acres in the western
Dade County area, it gave the park power of eminent
domain to take over private lands, Cook said. He said 97
percent of the land is now in federal hands.

family-operated Coopertown
Air Boat Rides in the
Everglades, which first
opened 58 years ago.

But some businesses like Coopertown still remain
in negotiation.
"We know these operations have long histories and
tourist interest," said Cook, who believes the future of the
sensitive environment depends on controlling park activities.
"We have agreed to let Coopertown continue its oper-
ations while lawyers deal with the issue of fair compensa-
tion and the Park Service undertakes a management plan
to see just what can and can not be allowed with the park,"
Cook said.
One possibility is that certain businesses will be able
to operate within the park under a federal license requir-
ing operators to meet some guidelines.

"We probably would want all alligators released from
things like cages and some airboat operations might have
to be altered," he said, 'That management plan and its
impact of wildlife and vegetation with the Everglades may
take a few years to complete."
Whatever the future spells, the airboat attraction now
draws thousands of tourists who travel through winding
river trails and come face-to-face with what Kennon calls
the "environmental magic" of the Everglades.
In 1945, John Cooper, Kennon's distant cousin,
caught frogs in the area to sell to visitors, who constantly
requested boat rides to tour the Everglades. Cooper decid-
ed to get into the airboat sightseeing business and enlisted
his two brothers, his wife and two children to help. The
family also decided to claim their small area as a "town"
and named it Coopertown, although it was never official-
ly incorporated because there were only six residents.
State law required 16.
"I remember coming down here when I was a teenag-
er, but never thought I would someday be running it," said

Airboat attraction introduces tourists to the Everglades


Kennon, who originally lived in Missouri and has traveled
around the globe doing odd jobs in construction:
In 1981, when he had the option to take over the air-
boat business and the "town," he moved his family into the
original Everglades homestead. His wife began operating
the small restaurant, built in 1947, and today still serves
on its menu popular frog legs and alligator tail. The cou-
ple's five sons and daughter also helped out, but eventual-
ly left to pursue other careers.
"My closest neighbor is one mile to the west, five
miles to the east and 20 miles to the south and none to the

expectations by serving alligator tail and frog legs.


north, so we are way out here alone with a big backyard,"
Kennon said.
But scores of visitors show up weekly to see the won-
ders of the neighborhood. In a year, the average number of
boat riders exceeds 50,000.
Actors, political leaders and the like have visited, with
many movies using Coopertown as a shooting location.
The town restaurant's walls are covered with autographed
pictures of celebrities along with hundreds of business
cards stuck all across the ceiling.
"Most people are amazed at how beautiful the scenery
is," explains Kennon. "The alligators are the big draw, but
there are hundreds of birds and amazing vegetation."
Ed Raut, a boat operator and tour guide for the past
eight.years, talks about the history, of the Everglades as
tourists climb on board.
""The Everglades means river of grass and is 100 miles
long and 40 miles wide," Raut explains. "It's the slowest
moving river in the world, traveling one mile a-day :with a
shallow depth in many areas ranging from 18 to 24 inches."
Sitting high atop the boat with a giant fan behind him.
Raut maneuvers the craft skillfully along \ hat he calls finger
rivers that snake through the tall sawgrass and mangroves.
Once he spots something of interest, the boat comes
to a stop while passengers gawk at a rare bird with bright
blue and red feathers. Then, Raut moves along to a.spot
when a large female alligator suns herself with a couple of
small babies about two feet long nearby.
Next we stop to see a large male, who is coaxed out
from under the grass after Raut throws a marshmallow in
the water. Along the 40-minute ride, the passengers have
a chance to see lots of alligators and birds while Raut rat-
ties off stories and statistics, including the largest alligator
on record being 19 feet long.
"Every person who takes such a ride gets a free edu-
cation on how important the Everglades is and comes
away appreciating the need to protect it," said Kennon,

talk about and shoiv on his regular outings.
who fears encroaching residential development on the
sensitive environment. He points to a large housing com-
plex only a few miles east along State Road 84 in what
once was a wildlife preserve.
"Things are changing and we'll never get back to
where it all was naturally, but we can say enough is
enough and protect what we have."

for the last three years, said she has seen many of the same
people come back year after year. "It's a commitment on
their part to the environment and a desire to keep Broward
County a beautiful place to live and boat," she said.
It was a sign along the highway calling for volunteers
for the cleanup that caught Mammano's attention four years
ago when she first climbed aboard the project.
"I showed up at the Ann Kolb Center in Hollywood and
was amazed at the enthusiasm of so many volunteers,"
explained Mammano. "And I've seen that many of the same
volunteers show up year after year so there isn't much of a
burnout rate."
She has been pleased in recent years by the active
involvement of so many school kids, many of whom are
earning school credit for their work under special communi-
ty service programs in the schools.
"Having young people involved is a long-term invest-
ment in the future because they and their families will con-
tinue the awareness of clean waterways for many years to
come," she said.
Joan Sheridan, al7-year volunteer and a site coordina-
tor for the Lauderdale Isles Yacht Club cleanup site, said she
continues to be motivated "by how important it is to educate
the community and make them aware of our environment
and how they can help preserve it for our children."
Sheridan believes the cleanup provides opportunities
for networking by each community and for
families and businesses to increase their awareness of
"how precious the environment is to our quality of life."
"It's amazing how much cleaner the waterways are now
compared to when I first started volunteering," she said.
"There is less trash and this means more and more of our
community is hearing our message."
Many local businesses and civic organizations sponsor

nished lounge with television, a large bar, a kitchen with a
commercial stove and pantry. Members and guests have to
bring their own food and drinks. There's even a freshwater
shower house.
Roach pointed up to mattresses stowed in the overhead
of the outdoor upper deck, and he rolled down a tarpaulin
that formed a screen from ceiling to floor. 'This is an out-
door dormitory," he said. "You should see this place when
it's full of scouts. They put their sleeping bags out here and
set up their little pup tents and stay overnight."
Wiggins and Roach said Frank Krell and his wife
Georgie Krell started the Miami Springs Power Boat Club and
built the original clubhouse in the early 1950s with money
supplied by Georgie's mom and labor supplied by members.
According to a history published in the club newsletter,
"Scuttlebutt"' the first meetings were in Dixie Heyder's beer
and wine bar in Miami Springs. Later the meetings were
moved to the Rickenbacker Causeway and then to the
Quarterdeck Club, a 1940-built members-only saloon that
was the first stilt building out.there. Several private weekend
retreats soon rose close by.
The Miami Springs bunch built its first clubhouse on a
sunken barge that was re-floated and sealed by firemen -
then as now a mainstay of the club. There are rich members
with yachts as long as 60 feet, but plenty of others with the
skills of the building trades, said Wiggins. "Most'of our
members did the work ourselves. Wes. We never hired any-
one to do a thing."


Photo/JOHN ZIEGLER
Seven houses out of the original 27 remain standing in
Biscayne Bay in the area known as Stiltsville.


The Krells, still in Miami Springs, still use the club-
house. Frank holds the highest rank, admiral of the fleet.
In 1965 Hurricane Betsy wrecked the clubhouse.
Environmental regulations prohibited rebuilding Stiltsville
houses with more than 50 percent damage, but Coast Guard
officers supported the club because members had always
helped out in search and rescue operations. So they were per-
mitted to rebuild. Andrew was less harmful, though it did
scramble everything in the upper-deck clubhouse and blew
away just about everything below, including almost all the
docks.
Membership today amounts to about 75 families, still
doing nearly all the manual work themselves. Roach, a two-
year member, said they come in boats as small as a 14-foot
Boston Whaler, and as big as a 60-foot yacht.
Roach holds the office of rear commodore a working
officer. He deals in official club tee shirts and caps, is an
unabashed fundraiser and speaks with fervence of the club's
sometimes bickery dealings with the National Park Service.
Tom Flores, an assistant chief in Miami Fire-Rescue, is
chairman of its Save Old Stiltsville committee.
A good place to meet some of these boaters is the Dania
Marine Flea Market, from April 3-6 at Dania Jai-Alai. The
event is one of Southeast Florida's major dry-land boating
events.-.and aniimportant fundraiseTrfor the Miami Springs

White sand beaches among South Padre's best features


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
From 16th century Spanish explorer Heran Cortez to
pirates who preyed on treasure-loaded galleons, the craggy
Texas coastline near South Padre Island is long on ship-
wreck tales.
With its 25-foot bluffs, the tiny fishing village of Port
Isabel was a natural lookout for pirates from Rio Grande and
Corpus Christi in the early 1800s.
By the 1930s, the town had paved streets, manmade
canals, electric lights and merchants, gradually pushing Port
Isabel toward a tourist-based economy.
Today, Gulf-side Port Isabel, Brownsville and San
Padre Island are filled with restaurants, shops, hotels and
inns, museums and family attractions.
Connected by a causeway from Port Isabel on the main-
land, South Padre Island is located on the tropical tip of
STexas, bordered on the east by the Gulf of Mexico and to the
west by Laguna Madre bay.
South Padre's white sandy beaches are ranked among
U.S.'s Top 10.
There is a seemingly endless supply of seashells, and
possibly buried treasure beneath the sand, according to folk-
lore. The Gulf's emerald-colored waters are the site of sail-
ing, fishing windsurfing and diving, with boat ramps, slips
and marinas all in plentiful supply.
The northern 29 miles of South Padre Island consists of
wind-carved sand dunes, a variety of natural wildflowers
and sea grasses, along with deserted beaches ideal for
beachcombing or surf fishing.
With about 600 different species, South Padre Island
claims the best saltwater fishing along the Texas Gulf coast.
There is the lighted 5,000-foot Queen Isabella Fishing
Pier. Speckled trout, redfish, flounder, black drum and
sheepshead are caught in the Laguna Madre. Venturing off-
shore, anglers can land amberjack, tuna, ling, red snapper,
_kingfish, pompano, grouper or sailfish. About 60 different
charter companies and personal guides offer-bot-bay and
deep-sea fishing trips.
For more than 65 years, the Texas International Fishing
Tournament has created a family-friendly fishing competi-

near South Padre Island.

tion in the first week of August. With divisions that include
bay, offshore and tarpon, it's the largest saltwater fishing
tournament in the Lone Star state.
Last year 1,170 registered anglers participated in the
tournament, weighing in fish that ranged from redfish, trout
and flounder to an impressive 154-pound yellow fin tuna.
During sunset, check out Amberjacks, which overlooks
the Lagunda Madre where on the outdoor deck you can sip
a cold one and dine on gulf shrimp, Cerviche or a Texas
sweet onion blossom.
For brick-oven hand-made pizza, seafood, steaks, burg-
ers and a lively Gulf-side nightlife, stop by Club Rio Beach.
Just down the road sits Coconuts where visitors can book a
parasail or enjoy Caribbean specialty seafood and tropical
drinks under the palm-thatched palapa. A nice view of the
bay surrounds.
Located in the lush, semi-tropical lower Rio Grande
Valley, 23 miles from South Padre Island sits Brownsville,
the southernmost city in the mainland United States. Palm


trees sway in the breeze and colorful flowers and greenery
punctuate the landscape year-round.
Brownsville dates from the colonial days of imperial
Spain, including periods of exploration, war, revolutions and
legendary banditry. Local monuments remind visitors of the
battles that occurred in Brownsville during the Mexican war.
The Historic Brownsville Museum is housed in the old
southern Pacific Railroad passenger depot and chronicles
the town's history through photo exhibits with permanent
and rotating exhibits.
Known for its shrimp fleet, the border town celebrates
its proud heritage of two cultures with its version of Mardi
Gras at the end of February. Charro Days features four days
of carnivals, parades, dances and cultural events to recognize
the unique relationship between the two nations.
The Mexican port of Matamoros (pronounced mah-tah-
mohrohs) is connected to Brownsville. Settled in 1700, it is
the most historically significant of the Rio Grande border
towns. It is the commercial hub for the surrounding cotton-
producing and cattle-raising region and also draws tourists
with bargains on glassware items, pottery table lines and
house wares.
Stop by the Juarez Market with its 100-plus shops,
some selling brightly colored Mexican folk art. The
Casamata Museum is the last remaining fort in northern
Mexico dating back 150 years. The Cathedral of Our Lady
of Refuge, built in 1832, features neo-classical architecture
while the Municipal Palace was built in a French-Creole
style in 1831.
SThe region offers the natural beauty of its beaches, cul-
ture and history. Legend has it that once you drink water
from the Rio Grande, you will always come back -
whether for a visit, or for a lifetime.

tunities, call 956-761-4412.
