Cost and location logistics lead
to Miami stopover's demise
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
The Volvo Ocean Race's stopover at Miami last year
drew decent crowds, filled hotels, fed restaurants plenty of
business and proved that local folks could organize such a
thing pretty well but don't hang from the yardarm til it
comes back again.
The only U.S. stopover next time in 2006 will be shared
by Baltimore and Annapolis on Chesapeake Bay.
The Swedish car builder, following its first time as prin-
cipal sponsor of the global race formerly called the
Whitbread, has implemented a sea of changes that it was
only beginning to plan last spring.
"I wouldn't say I'm disappointed, no," said Miami
sailor-lawyer James McDonald, who recruited last spring's
local stopover and knew there was talk of streamlining the
costly race.
There will als6 be only one stopover in Australia or
New Zealand instead of both, with a very short pit stop
replacing the second stopover, wrote Volvo Race spokesper-
son Lizzie Green in an email.
"We knew it was coming, and we didn't prepare a bid,"
McDonald said of the loss of the Miami visit. "I assumed
that if they were going to choose between two ports,
Baltimore-Annapolis has done it twice and it's a real enthu-
siastic sailing atmosphere there."
McDonald's law office overlooks the place, behind
American Airlines Arena and across the Intracoastal
Waterway from the Port of Miami, where the race village
was assembled last year.
It was a wonderful spot, in a limited way. There was plen-
ty of room for the eight race boats to dock, toured by visitors
including several thousand school kids on field trips and
hoisted ashore for repairs. If you happened to be passing by
on your own boat, you could turn in to a sizeable ship slip for
a closer look, but there was no place to tie up and go ashore.

Last year's Volvo
stopover in Miami:
the next race in 2006
will bypass the city in
favor of stopovers in
Baltimore and Annapolis.


Banners hyping the race village fluttered on every light-
post along Biscayne Boulevard, where traffic typically is
slow enough for drivers and passengers to have noticed the
big sailboats beside the arena but only the boats could be
seen from the street, and if anyone wanted to swing around
for a closer look, it would have been tough to do.
"It was sort of obscure, but once you were there it was
great," McDonald said.
Part of the site's obscurity was its inaccessibility from
Bayside Marketplace, the only consistently busy public place
on the Miami city waterfront outside of Coconut Grove.
Between the arena land and Bayside is the road
approach to the Port of Miami, heavily travelled by truck-
mounted cargo containers and tourists in rental cars on their
way to and from cruise ships.
Ever try walking across that?
"Worth your life," says Lee Tawney, who tried it
once. You can feel him trembling through the phone line,
all the way from Baltimore, where he is secretary of
Ocean Race Chesapeake.


That's the outfit that organized a race stopover in 1998
for Whitbread and another last year for Volvo, and has been
awarded a third for 2006.
How does Maryland do it? First off, there's Ocean
Race Chesapeake itself, a partnership between the public
and private sector. It was established in 1998 to produce
the annual Columbus Cup Regatta and to bid (unsuccess-
fully that time) for a 1994 Whitbread stopover.
It doesn't disband between events, because there's no
time lapse. This month the partnership is bringing two
America's Cup yachts, Courageous and Freedom, to the
Chesapeake for a series of races as part of the Baltimore
Waterfront Festival and the Maryland Maritime Heritage
Festival at Annapolis. In May, Ocean Race Chesapeake will
co-sponsor the Hemingway Cup Ocean Race from Fort
Lauderdale to Baltimore.
So Chesapeake, you might say, is a serious sailing place.

Coast Guard Auxiliary: watching the waterfront during wartime


By DAVID VOLZ
For the Waterfront News
With the nation at war in.Iraq, more and more Coast
Guard personnel are being asked to serve in the U.S. Navy.
This means fewer Coast Guard personnel to protect
Florida's shores and waterways. But people like Jim
Ashley, public affairs officer of the Fifth Division of the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary, are picking up the slack by
providing crucial support.
"We do port security along with the naval vessel pro-
tection zone," Ashley said. "We assist in monitoring and
advising boaters of the 100 yard standoff of all military,
commercial, and cruise vessels."
The Auxiliary's fifth division extends from Delray
Beach to Vero Beach and has about 500 active members, 80
patrol vessels and four aircraft for aerial surveillance.
Members volunteer their personal watercraft to help in the
auxiliary's mission.
Jackie Levine, flotilla staff officer for public education,
first got involved with the group after moving to Florida 20
years ago.
"I saw all these people driving around on their boats

The auxiliary is participating in Operation On Guard,
a national program that asks citizens to report any
suspicious or unusual activities on the waterfront.
and nobody knew what they were doing," Levine said. "So
I thought these people should be taught what to do correct-
ly when driving a boat. And the only organization I could
find that would do that was the Auxiliary."
Levine's work involves scheduling five-week boat


programs that teach basic skills and seamanship. "We go
over boating rules, equipment and trailering. I think it is an
excellent course and gives everyone a basic knowledge
about how to read waterway signs and buoys."
The Auxiliary has long performed vessel inspections
"on everything from Seadoos to sport fishing boats and char-
ter boats," Ashley said. "This saves a lot of time for the
Coast Guard. It means they can spend more time patrolling."
While no auxiliary members carry guns or enter com-
bat, they perform backup activities. For example, when the
U.S. was first under Code Orange, auxiliary members
guarded the gates of Coast Guard stations.
The auxiliary is also involved in Operation On Guard,
a national program that asks citizens to be aware of their
surroundings and to report any suspicious or unusual activ-
ities on the waterfront.
"Nobody knows an area better than the people wholive
there," Ashley said. "At this time, nothing really suspicious
has been reported in this area."
With so many cruise ships in port, it's hard for the

Problems plague city's high-tech sanitation vessel


Pollution Solution spends
little time on the water
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
When Fort Lauderdale city officials purchased a high-
tech vessel to pick up trash on the waterways, they hailed
the boat as an important investment.
But since its dedication in 1999, problems have
plagued the vessel, dubbed the Pollution Solution. A recent
inquiry by the city's marine advisory board revealed that
the boat has spent more time docked than out on the canals.
Randy Dunlap, a marine advisory board member,
called the vessel's service record "horrendous."
Board members are presently reviewing information
on the boat and expect to make a recommendation to Fort
Lauderdale City Commissioners, he said.
"We've got this $200,000 thing and we can't keep it
running," Dunlap said. "We need to look at it and deter-
mine whether it's worth keeping on the water."
A report by city staff states the boat's cleaning sched-
ule has been affected by poor weather, staff turnover and
the inability to secure a maintenance contract with a com-
pany that specializes in hydraulic and diesel engine repair.
The boat was scheduled to operate a maximum of 60
hours per month. Instead, the vessel has logged an average

of 23.68 hours per month over a 47-month period, accord-

It wasn't supposed to be that way. Back in March,
1999, city officials lauded the Pollution Solution as their
newest weapon in the ongoing battle to keep the waterways
free of debris.

The boat features special arms on the front that skim
the water, removing any floating garbage. The items are
then placed on a conveyer belt and put into a holding bin.
At the time of purchase, officials had stated the boat
would be used to clean about 85 percent of the city's 185

More money, more anglers and with luck more fish


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
More prize money, more boats, more fishermen and
fisherwomen. The 21st annual Miami Billfish
Tournament, opening Friday, April 4, at Miami Beach
Marina, has all that.
With increased competition and extra prize money
meant to draw larger numbers than last year's 408 anglers on
101 boats, more sailfish would also be nice.
They're always welcome at these events, where they get
in free and are fed very well on fresh goggle-eye, tinker
mackerel and extra-large pilchards. Too bad there's no
money in it for them.
It's not certain how many fishers will show because
entries ($250 per angler) are accepted until the eve of com-
petition, with about half usually received after the $50 dis-
count deadline.
Doesn't money matter? Not one $50 bill at a time, but a
large cloud of fifties should lure a large school of anglers to
the tournament. In an event created for sailfish, it also turns
the dolphin from bycatch to serious quarry.
"I think it's going to be larger because this year we've
added a $5,000 cash payment for the heaviest dolphin," says
Karen McGinley, the tournament's managing director. "We
did this in an attempt to attract more anglers, to put some
more cash into the fun fishing division as an enticement, to
bring in new boats."
Competitive spirit, camaraderie, sport for sport's sake
and worthy causes still drive the big fishing tournaments.
Last year, this particular one gave out grants totaling
$58,050 to conservation, marine .science research and
related projects.
But for the competitors, wallet-size pictures of presi-
dents, printed in living green, add something equally desir-
able and more tangible.
Case in point: Since 1995, the team that catches and
releases the most billfish in this tournament, the Bob Lewis
Billfish Challenge and Florida Billfish Masters combined,
wins the Libertad Challenge trophy a tail-dancing sailfish
made of bronze by sculptor-charter captain Pierre Pierce.
Everyone wants it, but this year they want it 10,000
times more. That's how many dollars Dadeland-based
Shelly Realty is contributing to the first time cash award.

That may not draw boats and people to the tournament -
serious bill-fishers don't miss this one anyway but it's
sure to hike the competitive intensity, creating a sub-touna-
ment inside the Miami Billfish.
Who will win the Libertad prize? A better question:
who can win it? Let's start handicapping from the list of pre-
vious winners.
Capt. Ray Rosher's boat Miss Britt, with Nick Smith as
fisherman, won in 2000 and '01. Contender One, with Joe
Neber and son, Matt, fishing, won in 1998 and last year.
If wagering occurred on these things, a knowing bettor
would be smart to put at least one chip on Rosher's number,
no matter who's handling the fishing rods now that Nick
Smith has left the live bait world for fly-fishing and is set-
ting sailfish records in Guatemalan waters.
Rosher rolls on, this year running Kitt Toomey's 53-
foot Viking, Get Lit, with Jon Cooper registered both as
mate and a competing fisherman. (It isn't terribly unusual

for a charter captain in high demand to be hired out as skip-
per on a private boat for a tournament while his own boat
and crew compete separately. Rosher did that last year too.)
The team, including Toomey, Charmain Williams and Peter
Miller, won the Bob Lewis Billfish Challenge (March 9-10)
with 12 releases.
In the flush of excitement -10 releases on the first day
of the Lewis the usually reserved Rosher declared: "We're
going for the triple crown together, all three tournaments."
They can go for it, but Rosher knows they'd better not
spend the money yet. His own boat, Miss Britt, with his own
co-captain Alex Castellanos, mate Robbie Ramirez and
anglers Nicole Roy and Rob Ruwitch, finished two fish
behind Rosher at the Lewis Challenge. Roy, with six releas-
es, won the individual angler championship there.
Roy may breathe down Rosher's neck again in the
Miami Billfish Tournament, but perhaps not as hard as Joe
Neber and his son Matt, 14. They know as well as Rosher
that one exceptional day in any of the three tournaments can
put almost any crew on top for the Libertad bonanza.
Last year he and Matt on the strength of one excep-

Higher stakes increase annual fishing tournament's allure


tional day cleaned up almost everything but the dock lit-
ter: a dozen team and individual awards and, gosh, $56,430
in cash.
If that wasn't sufficiently satisfying, in addition to
Neber's own 36-foot Contender One, there were 32 other
Contenders in the tournament, dominating the field of small-
er vessels. Neber builds Contenders and shares the toura-
ment's lead sponsorship with Yamaha's outboard engines.
The Nebers ran away from the competition in more
ways than that a year ago. Almost everyone else headed east
and south from Miami Beach Marina. The Nebers headed
north to the waters off Boca Raton each day. With three 250
horsepower outboards on the stem, they travel fast.
"The first day, we just heard the fishing was good up
there," Neber told the Waterfront News. "The water condi-
tions were kind of iffy down here poor, cloudy. There
were not a lot of fish being caught out front. We got six the
first day and 11 the next day and one the third day.
"Was I surprised? No. If you get on top of a decent body
of fish, you can do that well. You can be as good as you want
to be, but if you're not sitting on top offish, you're not catch-
ing them."
Unintentionally, the Nebers proved that point in the
Lewis Challenge four releases, as though they couldn't
cut bait, much less catch fish. So, although his answer would
deserve respect, Joe Neber didn't bite when he offered a
chance to predict the Miami Billfish Tournament.
"That tournament's full of excellent fishermen," he
answered. "On any given day, it's anybody's tournament."
Neber has a pro crew Capt. Bill Cordes, mate Wayne
Savage but that doesn't guarantee him much more than an
edge. There are plenty of amateurs who compete with the best
and beat them often enough to think they can win any time.
For example, Mike Causley, captain and owner of Snap
Bean, is... are you ready? ... a farmer who grows snap beans.
His teammates Steve Petrillo, Ed Glenn and Paul Dreisch
- aren't fishing pros either, but the pros know who they are
because their names are so often on the leader board.
How do they do that? Here's Causley:
"We just try to get our bait good quality, top
notch baits."

Capt. Ray Rosher, center, drew a crowd at the Bob
Lewis Billfish Challenge after guiding Kitt Toomey,
Charmain Williams, Peter Miller and Jon Cooper to a
10-sailfish catch on the first day of the tournament in
March. They won that competition on Toomey's boat,
Get Lit, and will be on it again in the Yamaha-Contender
Miami Billfish Tournament.
There's more, of course. Every member of the Snap
Bean team has the skills of professional mates and captains,
and the group fishes together so often it also competes on
the Southern Kingfish Association circuit that no one has
to be reminded what to do when the fish are biting. That
causes confidence.
"Oh yeah, we're always confident. If you don't believe
you can win, why fish? We always go out there with the pos-
itive attitude that we're going to win. We're always disap-
pointed when we don't. We always feel we're going to be
one of the top 10 or 15 boats."

A yacht by

any other name

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
After I got rid of my father's old 30-
foot Sport Fisherman, I made a vow to
the gods of sanity and common sense that
it would be a long time before I'd own
another boat. However, living on the
water in a sub-tropical climate, my will
finally broke down and I did purchase a
new craft an 18-foot electric-powered
launch.
Some other time I'll go into my rea-
soning behind this unusual choice of ves-
sel, but for now, let's just say that I didn't
want to continually play with an internal
combustion engine. When I'm paying the
costs, I prefer traveling to other countries
by more efficient methods than a boat.
The purchase peaked my interest in
the history of electric boating, and I dis-
covered several books. on the subject.
Among them: a reprint of the 1902 Elco
Electric Boat Catalog, which featured a
significant line of launches and yachts
spanning from 18 to 75 feet.
"An 18-foot yacht!" you might
exclaim." Is that possible?"
Over the years, I've had some inter-
esting discussions with people as to what
constitutes the actual legal description of
a yacht.
After some research and a conversa-
tion with the local U.S. Coast Guard legal
office, I have found that as far as U.S. law
is concerned, there is no legal definition
for distinguishing a yacht from any other
vessel. In fact, it seemed that the only dif-
ference between yachts and launches in
that old Elco catalog was the addition of
luxury features rather than the vessel's
use or hull design.
Now according to Webster's
Dictionary, the word "yacht" originates
from the Dutch language to specify a
small ship with a shallow draft built for


speed. This means many boats we would
refer to as yachts these days are probably
inaccurately described.
For documentation purposes, the
U.S. prefers to categorize vessels by how
they're being used in its national waters.
The designations go like this:
The Coastwise Endorsement,
which permits a vessel to conduct com-
merce (including the transport of passen-
gers) between two or more U.S. ports.
The Fisheries Endorsement, which
allows a vessel to engage in commercial
fishing in the Exclusive Economic Zone
of the United States that extends in most
areas up to 200 miles offshore.
The Registry Endorsement, which
authorizes a vessel to conduct foreign
trade (but not coastwise trade). Also cov-
ered under this endorsement are certain
"cruises-to-nowhere," where the vessel
leaves port with paying passengers, goes
beyond the three-mile limit, and then
returns to the original berth without
touching another port.
The Limited Coastwise Endorse-
ment, which entitles a vessel to work as
oil-spill clean-up support while in U.S.
waters. This endorsement is of little
interest to most boat owners.
The Recreational Endorsement,
which is exactly what it sounds like. It
authorizes the vessel for pleasure use
only. The only commercial use allowed
for boats with this single endorsement
are certain types of recreational bareboat
charters.
It should also be noted that without a
special waiver, vessels must be built in
the United States in order to receive
Coastwise or Fisheries endorsements.
As I said before, the term yacht is of
little importance in the U.S. legal scheme

The dockage

dilemma

By RICK ROUGHEN
Waterfront News Columnist
Waterfront homeowners have for
years enjoyed the financial benefits of
renting out dockage space behind their
homes to boaters who need it. The extra
$500 or $600 each month may go a long
way towards subsidizing cash flow, but
today's litigious climate should prompt
thought to the pitfalls that lurk below the
surface.
In a follow-up to last month's column
on "backyard boatyards," some readers
might appreciate the following food for
thought:
Each month when you collect dock-
age from your vessel tenant, do you remit
sales taxes to the state? If not, could you
be responsible for back-taxes and penal-
ties?
Does this income appear on your
federal tax return? If not, could you be
held accountable to Uncle Sam as well?
Do you have a dockage agreement
with the renter that defines your expecta-
tions, lays out ground rules, limits your
liability and clearly spells out your rela-
tionship with the vessel and its owner?
For example, if the vessel catches fire and
it's determined that your shore power out-
let was the cause, will your homeowner's
policy step up to the plate? .
If a vessel's contractor inflicts air-
borne damage to a neighbor's property
(fiberglass dust, paint over spray, fumes
or diesel dust, for example), or if he slips
and falls on your dock and is injured, or if
he damages your property in some other
way, will you be covered?
Do you need to be insured before
work begins behind your home? If your
tenant decides he doesn't want to pay the
contractor's bill, can you be sued for
damages?
In the event of a hurricane, how


would damages caused by the vessel to
yours or a neighbor's property be han-
dled? If your cleats don't hold and it is
deemed your fault that the vessel was set
adrift in the storm, do you have any lia-
bility? Will your homeowner's policy
defend you and cover the losses?
If a fuel spill takes place, or some
unscrupulous captain decides to empty
his oily bilge, causing an environmental
fiasco while tied up to your dock, could
you be considered negligent? Who
would have to pay?
By allowing a vessel to dock
behind your home, is it implied that you
assume care, custody and control?
What if the vessel is stolen? Who
would bear the financial burden of
replacing it?
Did you check to see that the ves-
sel was properly insured before you fas-
tened her lines to your property? Is it
possible that the vessel's insurance com-
pany could subrogate losses against you
personally?
If the vessel owner falls behind in
his payments or ends up leaving without
paying, do you have any reliable
recourse? Without a dockage agreement,
can you prevail in court? Would you be
opening a Pandora's box by filing suit?
The reality of opportunism becomes
all too clear when something une.xpect-
edly goes wrong. A meeting L\ ith one's
insurance agent, tax accountant and
attorney to discuss these issues would be
time well spent.
When aware of the risks, a good
decision can be made. Otherwise the
risks may far exceed any short-term
financial bennies.

industry consultant now president of

No matter what you call it, legally a vessel is still a vessel


YA(HT FROM PE'I


of things. However, the United Kingdom's Maritime and
Coast Guard Agency (MCA) does appear to recognize the
word and does refer to it.
Without going into too much detail, it seems that a
yacht in the MCA system is a vessel of a certain size
designed for pleasure use, though they recognize that it
can also be used for commercial charter.
The MCA also has a system to certify seamen as
yachmasters. It is a program which appears to offer the
graduating candidate greater employment opportunities
on yachts registered with the U.K. and various common-
wealth countries (often referred to as "red flag" vessels).
But from the current American standpoint, there is no


real reciprocity between the yachtmaster certification sys-
tem and the U.S. masters license. This means if you're a
yachtmaster and wish to captain a U.S. documented or
state registered vessel for pay, you must still become
licensed under the U.S. system.
It should also be noted that several schools in the area
call themselves "yachtmaster schools." There was a big
dispute for a while over which schools had the right to use
this term. As it presently stands, the courts consider it a
generic term, meaning potential students in south Florida
should carefully review the curriculum of any school they
choose to see if it's the course work they actually want.
In the end, at least we can usually say that a yacht by
any other name is still a vessel.

Seafood stars at longtime festival on Pompano Beach


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff Writer
Hugh Ganter and his cooking staff are busy rolling up
their sleeves in preparation for the thousands of conch frit-
ters they expect to cook during the 19th Annual Pompano
Beach Seafood Festival from April 25-27.
"Any time we go out to a festival like this, we know it
will involve a lot of extra work," said Ganter, owner of the
Seafood World Market and Restaurant in Lighthouse Point.
"But it's a lot of fun and we know the community benefits
in so many ways by this event."
Ganter is among the pioneers who helped establish the
seafood festival 19 years ago. His is the only local restaurant
that will occupy one of 11 food tents.
The other 10 booths will be manned by seafood vendors
and suppliers, some coming from outside Florida.
"Not every small restaurant is capable of handling such
a big festival like this," explained John Good, whose pro-
motions company oversees the festival's planning for the
Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce. "It takes a great
deal of effort, equipment and staffing to be able to turn out
the volume of food needed."
Ganter, who's been cooking almost all his adult life, has
won top ratings by food critics and travel magazines for his
Seafood World restaurant.
The son of a German diplomat, he was born in Lima,
Peru and eventually made his way to the U.S. 30 years ago.
His mother was a chef and he learned at an early age the fun
challenges he could experience in the kitchen.
"I was a teacher for a while, but really got it into my
head to go into the food industry while I lived in the
Bahamas"
He loved the tropical setting and opened a small
seafood restaurant before quickly realizing that despite the
island setting, there wasn't a wide range of local seafood to
serve.
When he came to the Fort Lauderdale area, Ganter saw
the opportunity to not only open his own restaurant, but to
begin a wholesale seafood business linking him to seafood-

buying customersaround the world.
"We have a stone crab operation in the Bahamas and
work with many other areas to get the freshest and best
seafood to serve at Seafood World and to sell through our
wholesale division," he explained.
Key West, noted for its conch dishes, gets most of the
delicacy from Seafood World, Ganter said.
Ganter and his wife, Joy, started the business 28 years
ago with only four tables in a single room at the Main Street
Plaza restaurant in Lighthouse Point.
Today, the expanded restaurant seats 75, but there's still
the homey atmosphere with rustic plank flooring and wood-
en walls covered with fishing memorabilia. One section is
devoted to pictures of people including many celebrities
like Mohammed Ali who have eaten at the spot.

"This is a relaxed, friendly, family atmosphere,"
explained Ganter, who has moved out from behind the stove
in recent years to handle business operations. His two sons,
Chris and Troy, both in their 20s, are taking on more respon-
sibility of the multi-million dollar wholesale operation.
"Once I believe they can take charge, maybe Joy and I
will step down." However, at age 61, Ganter shows no signs
of slowing down.
Chef Tommy Ek now oversees the daily menu. During
the upcoming seafood festival, he will hold down the fort
at the restaurant while others including Ganter cook
in the tent.
Ek's staff plans to transport over 30 gallons of batter to
the festival to fry the conch fritters the most popular item
on the Seafood World menu.
The Seafood Festival, one of the largest in South
Florida, is right on the beach at the end of Atlantic
Boulevard in Pompano Beach, and attracts up to 32,000 peo-
ple. While seafood food draws the crowds, there's also plen-
ty of activities and attractions, according to Good.
A boardwalk bazaar will stretch along an 800-foot tem-
porary boardwalk on the beach with over 120 arts and crafts
booths. Many local organizations depend on proceeds from
the event to fund special programs throughout the year, such
as youth athletics, church activities and other civic causes.
In the past five years, nearly $500,000 has been raised
for civic causes.
"The festival benefits so many worthwhile charities so
that makes all the hard work worthwhile," Good said.
If the arts, crafts and food aren't enough for crowds,
there's always musical entertainment. Scheduled to appear
on. the festival stage on April 25 is Little Anthony and the
Imperials, while the April 26 talent will include an afternoon
show by the "Classic Rock All Stars" and an evening per-
formance by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Jazz artist Nestor
Torres closes the weekend entertainment April'27.

Big boat hopes: Marina expands accommodations
Bahia Mar to offer more
mega yacht slips
This is one in a series of features on south Florida's
waterfront landmarks. This month the Waterfront News .
takes a look at one of Fort Lauderdale's oldest marinas: s
Bahia Mar Yachting Center. AM


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
With roots firmly planted in Fort Lauderdale's history,
Bahia Mar Yachting Center is moving quickly toward a
future of accommodating bigger boats.
"It's an exciting time not only for us, but the entire local
marine industry," said Kevin Quirk, general manager of
Bahia Mar, located at 801 Seabreeze Blvd. "It's also fitting
that we continue to pioneer new opportunities, just like we
have done throughout our past."
Fort Lauderdale's nautical history took shape on this
spot where Bahia Mar now sits. An aging marker in front of
the beachfront entrance to the Bahia Mar facility explains
how it all began.
The marker points out that the location was originally
an "Indian Haulover"- a spot where Indians lifted their
boats out of New River Sound and hauled them them over a
small piece of land into the Atlantic Ocean where they went
shell fishing. The name Bahia Mar is Spanish, with bahia
meaning bay and mar, the ocean.
By the early 1800s, the U.S. Army was busy battling the
Seminoles. In 1839 it built the second fort in the area and
named it after Maj. William Lauderdale, commander of the
military battalion sent here to deal with Indian uprisings.
The first fort had been built along the New River, nearer to
the area known today as Riverwalk.
When the second fort was abandoned and fell into
decay in the 1850s, the area became a house of refuge, pro-
viding shelter for shipwreck survivors. Later, the U.S. Coast

Guard took over the facility as its base during Prohibition for
chasing rumrunners attempting to bring in illegal whiskey
from the Bahamas.
In 1927, rumrunner Jimmy Alderman was caught with
more than 160 cases of rum. Resisting capture, Alderman
ended up killing two guardsmen and was sentenced to
death. His was not only the last hanging held by the Coast
Guard at the site, but is also said to be the last public hang-
ing in the country.
When the Coast Guard eventually abandoned the site
after World War II, the City of Fort Lauderdale stepped for-
ward to create the marina. After paying $600,000 for the site
in 1948, a 400-slip marina was opened on Dec. 1, 1949.


Today, the city continues to own the land, leasing it to
its current operators. The 15-story Radisson tower with 185
rooms was built in 1975. The resorttoday has 300 rooms
throughout the complex, which is the site of many major
conventions and meetings.
Quirk said there are no immediate plans to build an addi-
tional hotel tower. "There's been speculation about it, but we
have our hands full right now with the marina expansion."
The multi million-dollar marina renovation began last
fall, the day after the Fort Lauderdale International Boat
Show closed. It was 44 years ago that the boat show began
at Bahia Mar and the new marina is expected to be finished
in time for next fall's show. Bahia Mar declined to give the
exact cost of the renovation.
Quirk said the MIASF was consulted about the marina

Baltimore beats out Miami in race fh


ing," Tawney said. "There's a huge sailing community on
the Chesapeake, and as a result of that there's a lot of enthu-
siasm. When the crews come here, they feel like they're
home with other sailors."
So much for intangibles. From what Tawney says, and
McDonald has seen for himself on trips to the Chesapeake,
the amount of public-private cooperation up there coupled
with development efforts, makes it ideal for big sailing events.
"We used our first Whitbread to create the Baltimore
Waterfront Festival," Tawney said. "We have that every year.
Even without the Volvo race, that attracts 350,000 people.
The event is managed by the city of Baltimore, and we take
over management when the Volvo is here.
"There's a constituency there that looks forward to the
race coming back. It gets tremendous coverage in the
Washington Post, Baltimore Sun and other media.
"People come regardless of the festival, because our
venue's a destination for tourists. It's connected to the busi-
ness community, and two blocks from the convention center.
"We have a public promenade that runs along the
waterfront, 78 miles long, all around the harbor. There was
a master plan that said you couldn't build anything on the
waterfront unless the development contributed to the
promenade. Only one development got developed outside
the master plan."
Can all that happen here? If you know Miami and
Miami-Dade County, you must be smiling.
When the arena development was proposed for the
Miami Heat, boosters boasted of future glories featuring
apartments, commerce and great public access, backside and
alongside. As construction proceeded through 1998 it became
obvious that there would not be nearly enough space for any-
thing permanent that wasn't directly related to the arena.


FILE PHOTO
While last year's Miami stopover drew many visitors,
the site was not considered easily accessible to the public.
"Whilst we all enjoyed being based in Miami last time
and the services available and temporary berthing for the
fleet were excellent, the overall stopover did not attract peo-
ple in significant numbers," Green of the Volvo Race wrote
in her email 'This was, in some way, due to the location of
the race village which was not easily accessible from the
Bayside marina and the lack of significant pre-promotion
and marketing of the event."
The land directly behind the arena, though large enough
for a yacht race stopover, is too narrow and inaccessible.
Getting in there depended on the generosity of the Heat
organization, which opened the Arena driveway and permit-
ted low-priced under-building parking.
There's a plan to build a marina for mega-yachts on
Watson Island, across the Intracoastal from the arena and
across the ship channel from the seaport. McDonald thinks
that can be a great site for a future Volvo race stopover, if it


or Volvo stopover
gets built and if other waterfront redevelopment ideas go
through instead of falling through.
In Miami, that's asking a lot. When McDonald started
planning the 2002 stopover, five years in advance, there was
optimism that a redeveloped waterfront would be in place by
the time the racing yachts made port.
Not a very good bet, say critics.
"What this community needs is an attitude adjustment,"
McDonald said. "Our state and local governments need to
realize this is worth doing for the community. I think more
serious governmental assistance and involvement is needed."
County government did contribute about $300,000 in
cash and in-kind services last year, enabling McDonald's
committee to hire professional event managers. McDonald
said more direct participation is needed something like
the extensive state-county-municipal involvement in
Ocean Race Chesapeake, which runs the Baltimore-
Annapolis stopover.
Trouble is, it can be awfully hard to get things done in
Miami. Years of propositions to redevelop Biscayne
Boulevard immediately north of the arena remain unful-
filled. Directly north of that spot lay the ghost and bones of
Bicentennial Park, a project that hardly anyone noticed was
all wrong until it was finished.
McDonald isn't discouraged. "When people say we
need to do it again, I say fine, but I think our waterfront
needs to be developed a little bit more. When all those things
come together, Miami can have its own inner harbor, just
like Baltimore.
"I'm looking out my office window now, down on
Bayfront Park. Outside of Bayside, there's all this water-
front and nobody uses it. What we need are docks along
there instead of riprap, and a boardwalk. If you go to any
successful harbor, it's a partnership between water, boats
and people."

Historic marina expands in wake of mega yacht projections


changes since it sponsors the annual boating event.
"There won't be any negative impact on the show
because we will still be bringing in portable docks and there
is power available all over the place:' said Quirk.
Through the years, Bahia Mar's marina that has been
the focal point of the site.
"We get boats from all over the world and that's made
it not only exciting for us who work here and serve those
guests, but to help promote Fort Lauderdale as a destination
for boaters to visit," Quirk said.
From its original 400 slips, dockage has decreased to
330 slips in recent years.
The renovation means a major facelift for the marina,
which is expected to be capable of serving the largest boats
in the world. When work is complete, the total number of
slips will be reduced to 250, but larger slips to handle mega
and super yachts (considered 85 feet and longer) will
increase from the current 22 slips to 100.
"We're building for today and the future while respond-
ing to what the marine industry says it needs more places
for big ships," said Quirk.
Drawing mega yachts from around the world is a high
priority of the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida. "Every time a megayacht pulls into our waterways,
it means a half million dollars to the local economy," MIA
Executive Director Frank Herhold said at the organization's
annual marine summit held'last year.
He said the local marine master plan seeks to promote
more marina dockage for big boats to maintain the health of

the annual $8.8 billion South Florida'marine industry.
Over 400 new megayachts are being built annually
around the world and "half of them will come right here if
we can handle them," said Joe Purtell, chairman of the
MIASF's public education and industry image committee.
Worldwide, there are 4,000 ships 80 feet or longer
boasting average price tags of around $4 million each. The
economic impact on South Florida has been estimated at
$287 million a year. That figure is expected to climb due
to projections that the luxury yacht business is growing by
20 percent 'a year and is leading the pack of new boats
being built,
But Quirk said the Bahia Mar Marina will always aim
to serve boats of all sizes. "We will always have spots for
some of the smaller boats, the family ones that often bring
colorful charters to town."
For example, Bahia Mar slip F-18 is perhaps the only
one of its kind to be designated a "literary landmark." In 1987
the slip was honored as the site of the boat, Busted Flush,
which was the 58-foot floating home of Travis McGee, a fic-
tional literary character created by author John D.
MacDonald. McGee's slip was constantly referred to in
MacDonald's series of novels about the adventures of a sal-
vage consultant.
Quirk said some of the slips have remained in the same
family for years.


"Our longest occupant was Lynn Noble who had her
boat docked here for 29 years. That ended when the woman
died several years ago."
Quirk, who has been overseeing Bahia Mar's operations
for the last nine years, said he's excited about the yachting
center's future.
"People are always amazed at what has happened at this
site over the years, but I think the best is yet to come'" he said.

Watery Cle p huls in slightly les th tn l APRIL 2003

Waterway Cleanup hauls in slightly less trash than last year


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Jorge Castillo walked along the main road into John
Lloyd State Park in Dania Beach last month and filled one
plastic bag after another with trash.
"I can't believe all this stuff," said the Hollywood res-
ident, one of many volunteers in Broward who spent a hot
Saturday afternoon participating in the 26th annual
Waterway Cleanup on March 8.
While a record 3,500 volunteers turned out for this
year's cleanup, the volume of refuse collected was down
from past years. Estimates were that 57 tons were collect-
ed, slightly lower than last year's 60 tons.
Event coordinators speculate that less trash means the
public is becoming more aware of environmental concerns.
"While this is the largest one-day environmental

While a record 3,500 volunteers

event in Broward County, it's only part of a year-round
public awareness campaign." said Martha Lord, MIASF
coordinator of the effort.
"Our Waterways, Our Future" is the theme of the
ongoing project, which aims to prompt boaters and others
to be responsible for what winds up in the waterways.
Volunteers armed with trash bags walked along the
shoreline or traveled aboard boats of all sizes, cleaning
300 miles of canals and waterways in the event sponsored
by the Marine Industries Association of South Florida.
Corporate-donated snacks were enjoyed before boats
took off to deliver volunteers to cleanup sites along the
waterways.
For Castillo, the hours he spent pulling trash caught in
mangrove roots along the Intracostal was worth it.
"I believe in a cleaner environment and if I can do my
part, maybe others will do theirs and think before tossing

for trash.







For Anthony Welsh, his wife, Maryann, and their two
sons, Paul and Stephen, the cleanup was a family affair.
"We use our boat several times a month along the
Middle River and we thought it would be good to take one
day and clean up as we enjoy the water," said Welsh, who
lives in Fort Lauderdale.
His family, carrying plastic bags and using hooks to
grab floating debris, launched their boat at the
Colohatchee Park ramp in Wilton Manors before motor-
ing along the South Fork of the Middle River.
The wide variety of trash collected amazed project
coordinators: shopping carts, toilet bowls, old tires, small
refrigerators, and even a couple of safes both empty.
"This is the one of our biggest projects of the year and
we're grateful for all the community support we received
from individuals and businesses," said Frank Herhold,
MIASF executive director.
He lauded the efforts of cleanup chairperson, Marilyn
Mammano, who monitored 28 sites from her headquarters at
the Lauderdale Marine Center on the New River. City and
county officials took part in special opening ceremonies.

Park's fishery plan open to public debate


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Biscayne National Park's fisheries
management plan, a hot boating and fishing
topic since the first announcement that a
plan would be created, comes up for open
public discussion. at three meetings sched-
uled in the second week of April.
A previous round of meetings last May
brought crowds of people representing
their personal points of view and those of
many organized conservation, fishing,
boating and commercial interests. The
hottest controversy concerned speculation
that certain areas of the park might be
closed to fishing for periods of time rang-
ing from seasonal to forever.
Those concerns were: inspired by a
University of Miami study, reported in
2001, that quantities and sizes of fish in
Biscayne Bay had diminished drastically
over a 25-year period, in spite of state-
imposed size and bag limits on virtually
every species of sporting fish. Most of


the bay south of Key Biscayne is part .of
the park.
Overfishing wasn't blamed entirely for
the fish decline. Coastal over-development,
polluted land-to-bay nmoff and other factors
are often cited as villains in the loss of water
quality, but they are much harder to keep out.
That's what many boaters and fishers
are afraid of. The April meetings will give
them their chance to review, in draft form,
the pending plan anid alternatives to solu-
tions they might find unacceptable.
The documents were not available in
time for publication in this edition of
Waterfront News. An Internet posting was
reported imminent on the park's website,

Art galleries color once rundown
By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
You gotta love a place where George Washington and ii

Throughout his life, Washington was a constant in--
Alexandria, Va., a celebrated guest of the town's social life.
Fleetwood, the frenetic drummer of Fleetwood Mac, was

was the proprietor of Fleetwoods, a popular Old Town
restaurant and watering hole.
This tale is one of many you'll pick up on the walking

then there is the striking, original terrazzo floor. It was
matched and repaired by a team of expert craftsmen. The
innovative American menu includes saut6ed marsala scent-
ed salmon, juniper and gin braised rabbit and seared breast
of duck with pistachio-tangerine sauce.
Several blocks north resides Stardust, an eatery with an
inviting atmosphere that specializes in seafood dishes. Zesty
oysters on the half shell are topped with Caribbean diced
mango salsa, onion and red bell peppers. It pays to save some
room for the warm blueberry pudding with rum cream sauce,
island coconut or tango mango house-made ice cream.
Back in Old Town, is the recently opened Caf6 Salsa
with its colorful, breezy, island-themed interior, spicy Latin
menu and dancing every Friday and Saturday night.
There are plenty of nightspots throughout Old Town
that offer spirited music, food and drink well into the night.
Alexandria is also home to one of America's legendary

Baynanza cleanup: Do a good deed and receive a t-shirt


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfron News Wnwer
It's time for the 21st annual Baynanza Cleanup, an
undertaking as massive and intensive as it is noble. In
three hours, 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 12.
between 6.000 and 7,000 volunteers will gather at 30
places where land meets the waters of Biscayne Bay and
clean up trash.
They make that we, for you'll be there too, right? -
will pick up and bag close to 20 tons of rubbish, a pre-
dictable annual total. That's a mighty achievement, never
mind how much is missed.
Who throws all that junk away? What's the matter
with them'?
One of the most important things to know, because it
feels good, is that it's not our fault, even though some of
the junk must have been tossed off boats and docks. No
sense denying a tattered boat cushion or a ruined cooler

half full of empties, but years of investigation support a
strong presumption that a majority of the guilty are land-
lubbers.
How do we know? For example, certain items such
as supermarket carts rarely if ever are thrown off boats.
Stuff found at storm drain outlets and canal mouths is
more likely to have come from land, not sea.
All who volunteer can take pride in doing scutwork,
pro bono. that they wouldn't do at home, w here we pay
someone else to do it if we can.
Volunteers who register with DERML, Miami-Dade's
environment agency, by the March 28 deadline will be
given proof of their nobility in the form of Baynanza T-
shirts. Waterfront News subscribers who receive the
April paper early should hit their keyboards quickly to
sign up online.

There are links on the left to registration forms for
volunteers to do the cleanup and boat owners to transport
volunteers to bay islands.
Registration is not required except to get one of those
T-shirts. Just show up well before 9 a.m. at any .of the
sites listed on the website; Baynanza will take all the help
it can get.
Though the cleanup is its premier event, Baynanza
isn't all dirtywork. There's a month's-plus calendar of
other environment-related organized Biscayne Bay
events that are educational and fun, and those that aren't
free are cheap.
The bay is one of southeast Florida's great natural
treasures. For anyone who wants to become beer
acquainted with it. Baynanza is a good way to begin.

Take a lifetime of

experience onboard


ver 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.
