Current events influence
list of top 10 boat names
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
What's in a name? Plenty, it seems, if you ask boat
owners.
The monikers they select for their vessels can reflect
any number of things, from professions to personality
traits.
"Most people put a lot of thought into it," said Steve
Dillon, commodore for the Gulfstream Sailing Club in
Fort Lauderdale. "There's usually some meaning behind
the name. Usually, they have a story and most will be
happy to tell you."
The folks at the Boat Owners Association of the
United States (Boat U.S.) know the importance of making
such a decision, which is why the organization puts out an
annual list of the 10 most popular names.
The association has been compiling the list for the
past 10 years. The top ten for 2002 was unveiled in March.
"People rack their brains over [picking a name]," said
Scott Croft, a spokesman for Boat U.S. "For some people,
it's a big challenge."
In South Florida, many boaters see it as their chance
to put a personalized signature on their investment, Dillon
said.
Carla Christopher, owner of BoatArt.com at the
Lauderdale Marine Center in Fort Lauderdale, has been
doing lettering and graphics on vessels for 16 years.
"[The clients] get very much involved," she said. "It's
a very personal thing for them. They come to me with
every conceivable idea under the sun and I try to make it
come true."
All of Christopher's clients have requested either
funny or classy names. "No one has ever suggested any-
thing offensive," she said.
Graphics are hot too. A few of the more popular ones
are marlins, dolphins, grape vines, palm trees and bikinied

ladies, she said.
One boat owner, who requested Dragon Lady, wanted
the name accompanied by a 12-foot-long dragon. Another
vessel owner, who asked for the same name, selected a
dragon's head on a female body, she said.
Although dragons might be a hit down here, the myth-

ical creature didn't make Boat U.S.'s top list.
The organization keeps track of names through its
graphics department. Often, the list is reflective of current
attitudes, Croft said.
For instance, the top spot for 2002 belongs to Liberty.
In second place is Victory. Both names, which have never
shown up on previous lists, seem to be a reflection of the
public's post-9/11 attitudes, Croft said.
Other names are old favorites that keep turning up
again and again. Endless Summer, ranked number five in
2002, has made lists two to three times in the past, he said.
Sometimes, however, what's missing can be just as
reflective, Croft said.
"The biggest one that didn't make the 2002 list was
Liquid Asset," he said. "It's a money term."
Croft believes it's a reflection of the sagging economy
that people didn't want to use a monetary moniker.
Brad St. Coeur, dockmaster for three a half years at
Harbour Towne Marina in Dania Beach, said he's just about
seen it all during his 25 years in the boating industry.
"We've probably had all those names in our marina at
one time or another," he said of Boat U.S.'s top 10 list.
Harbour Towne has 165 wet slips and 450 dry storage
racks. Past boats have included those with names like
Deprived and Seaducer, he said.
When St. Coeur sees something that stands out, he
usually doesn't ask the owner why he or she picked that
particular name.
"You can use your own imagination," he said.

Summer camp marine scene: snorkeling, sailing and science


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Young people will have an array of water-related sports
and marine science activities to choose from this summer.
Programs are available locally, nationally and aboard
that will give children a lifetime's worth of memories.
Parents can pick camps within driving distance, or
send their youngsters off to exotic locales like Tahiti.
Programs can run from living aboard a sailboat, to explor-
ing the Everglades.
When selecting a camp, experts advise parents to do
research before registering. This includes asking for refer-
ences from families who had previously attended the pro-
gram and speaking directly with camp directors about train-
ing requirements for staff and types of equipment used.
Below is a sampling of day and residential camps:
Camp Live Oak This environmental marine camp
is held for children 5 to 13 years old, 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.,

Group holds fishing tournament to s e pulMAY 2003

Group holds fishing tournament to spare popular canal


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
Catch bass, win money and raffle prizes, have fun and
help to save your favorite Everglades fishing canal from a
terrible fate. All this is to happen on Memorial Day week-
end, when SAFER short for South Florida Anglers for
Everglades Restoration stages its second annual fundrais-
ing bass tournament at Everglades Holiday Park in west
Broward County.
What's not to like? Maybe the traffic on that Sunday,
May 25, but other than that, the Save Our Canals tournament
is a cause worth fishing for. After 80 percent of the entry fee
money ($50 per two-man team) is paid out in prizes, the rest
goes into publications, mailing, website, community educa-
tion and other expenses incurred by SAFER.
The outfit is the fisherman's voice in a long-term fed-
eral-state-regional project to restore the swamp's historic
sheet flow of surface water, long impeded by flood control
levees. The flow is considered crucial to Everglades
National Park, south of the state water conservation areas
north of Tamiami Trail.
SAFER's goal is to convince the agencies involved in
the Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP)
that the best way to restore sheet flow is to remove the lev-
ees instead of using them to refill the canals from which they
were dredged in the first place.
Filling in the canals would wreck one of North
America's best warm-water freshwater sport fisheries. It
isn't the only idea under consideration, just the scariest. It's
also the one that inspired the organization of SAFER by 32
South Florida bass clubs in June 2001.
To thousands of people who fish out there, it seemed
absurd, unthinkable, to consider filling the canals. But not to
the people who were considering it.
Brad Arnold, secretary and spokesman for SAFER:
"One guy, I think he was with the Corps of Engineers,
said to us 'What? You mean there's people out there fish-
ing?' They didn't know we were out there fishing 'til we
started beating our drums, formed SAFER and started edu-
cating them."
There are four or five possible proposals, Arnold said,
including one that would cut two large openings in the L-67

levee and let the sheet water flow through those. L-67 is the
main north-south embankment and canal, between Tamiami
Trail and Alligator Alley.
That's better, SAFER activists say, but how about
removing the levees altogether and leaving the canals alone?
Theoretically, when water's high in rainy seasons the
sheet flow would be unimpeded. The canals, still there,
would hold the excess water. In dry times, surface water
would flow into the canals as it does now, a refuge for fish,
instead of being sponged into the porous ground.
The people planning CERP hadn't thought of that,
Arnold said. SAFER got them to agree to a hydrological
study to see if it would work. It's pending.
Winning such an agreement is a measure of the influ-
ence SAFER has gained in only two years. It's recognized
as an official stakeholder in the restoration project, taken
seriously and entitled to active participation at CERP plan-
ning sessions. SAFER's own monthly meetings are attended
routinely by a representative of Florida Fish and Wildlife.
South Florida Water Management sent one to the April
meeting. The Corps of Engineers was represented by three.
Arnold said the 32 fishing clubs in SAFER have 30 to
40 members on average, and more than 200 unaffiliated fish-
ers are on the mailing list. Membership isn't required to
enter the Save Our Canals tournament, and there's no limit

Florida Water Management. They're expected back this year.
Last year 94 two-angler teams were entered. The win-
ning team were brothers Steven and Andrew Forssell, 20
and 16, who caught a five-bass limit weighing 22.14
pounds. Their biggest fish, 6.35 pounds, was the tourna-
ment's second largest behind a 6.9-pounder caught by
Norbert Fernandez.
Brad Arnold said about 120 teams are expected this
year. If that's right, entry fees alone will total $6,000 with
$4,800 to be awarded in team prize money. In a second cat-
egory, an award for the biggest bass, most competitors are
expected to enter a $10 pool. The catchers of the two biggest
bass get all of that.
"We also have one of the best raffles I've seen, a dollar
a ticket, with very good prizes," Arnold said. "Last year one
of the best was a wild pig hunt from L&R Adventures, and
they gave us, call the same numbers or e-mail to info@sfan-
gler.com or send a letter to SAFER, P.O. Box 278618,
Miramar FL 33027. another this year. It's a guaranteed
hunt. You go out and hunt with them, and if you don't kill
a hog, they give you one. We'll also have trolling motors,
lures, clothing, gift certificates, all kinds of things."

Free flycasting class taught by seasoned fishing pros


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
There are two ways to learn flycasting:
1: Pay a guide $300 to $400 a day to take you fishing on
a bonefish flat, where you'll flail around foolishly and prob-
ably catch nothing.
2: Get free lessons, twice a week if you like, from a
$400-a-day guide like Bill Curtis, or a fly guru like Charlie
Richter.
Tough choice, huh? I looked for tie-breakers. It's a 14-
mile drive and a dollar toll from my house to Key Biscayne,
where Curtis launches his skiff. To Bass Pro Shops Outdoor
World it's almost exactly the same distance, with no toll.
I don't know about your expense account, but mine took
me to Bass Pro, which pays Bill and Charlie to give lessons
there every Tuesday and Friday at 5 p.m. I spent an hour
with Richter twice, Curtis once.
The groups were mixed. We included raw beginners like
Carlos Morcate of Plantation Park, Ross and Debbie Schulte
of Plantation and Chuck Mink of Pembroke Pines, skilful
intermediates like Mink's teenage son Casey, and experi-
enced guys with lousy technique, like your author here.
We also had a couple of quick studies in Shawn
Rommerdahl and his kid Kiersta, 10, of Pembroke Pines. She
was something to see, getting better with every cast. By the
end of the hour, Curtis had her working on the last mistake
left in her kit, a tendency to let her backcast go horizontal.
In three sessions, our largest group was eight people.
Except for the opening few minutes of introduction and
demonstration, the lessons are practically private. The
instructor spends a few minutes with you, corrects a couple
of mistakes, leaves you to practice, moves on to the next per-
son and soon returns to you.
Change this, adjust that, practice again. No one's a one-
hour expert, but everyone's a better flycaster than at the
beginning.
When Richter instructs, he concentrates on fundamen-
tals grip, backcast, power stroke, where to stop your rod.
Curtis dwells more on the fine points of accuracy, coping
with wind and so on, but there's a lot of overlap.
First thing you learn, if you're a beginner, is the differ-
ence: With the spinning or baitcasting rod you've been
using, you toss a weighted lure that pulls the fishing line off
the reel. With the flyrod, you toss a weighted line that car-
ries a weightless lure out over the parking lot.
Richter, Curtis and any other expert you ask will tell

Carlos Morcate on the bad habit
of cocking and snapping his casting
wrist as he would with a spinning rod.
Keep it straight!


you pretty quickly that form and technique are very
important.
"You don't want do a lot of this stuff with your wrist"
Curtis will say, cocking his right wrist and waving his hand
around. It's a common error. "You have to get the rod tip
travelling in a straight line. In order to do that you have to
make your hand travel in a straight line."
He demonstrates the proper grip: thumb on top of the
handle, which is virtually braced against wrist and forearm.
That keeps the wrist straight. At first, it's awfully awkward.
"Do not bend that wrist," Curtis repeats. "Do not do
that. That's the worst thing you can do. I just can't stress that
enough."
When you hear this, stick a finger in your opposite ear
to make sure the advice doesn't slip out. As a novice you
need to think about it every time you cast.
Flycasting isn't awfully hard, but flycasting well isn't
easy. Your technique has to be fairly precise, because the
tackle doesn't forgive carelessness.
Once you have it down, you may get away with some
mistakes, but lose your concentration and you can revert to
bad habits pretty quickly.
I do that. I know I need the line to straighten out above
the water's surface and land pretty much all at once, softly,
but it isn't happening.

."Almost every time I cast, the belly of the line lands
first, and the rest of it falls in a pile," I tell Richter at my first
session. He's noticed that, has seen me violating his instruc-
tion to stop the forward cast with the rod pointing straight
ahead and then lower it toward the water, which we imag-
ine the parking lot to be.
"The belly of the line is hitting the water first because
you're stopping your rod way down there. Watch," he tells
me, imitating my error and then doing it right. On the back-
cast, his line straightens out behind us, bending the rod like
a catapult. Fly fishers call that "loading the rod."
Charlie pauses for an instant as it loads, then moves his
forearm forward as if hammering a tack into a wall. Above
us, the line forms a horizontal loop, then zips ahead, unloop-
ing. When the rod is pointing forward, more or less level,
Richter stops it for scarcely a second. The line straightens,
falling softly to the surface-no splash, no slack. If the
asphalt were water, he'd be ready for a fish to strike.
On my left, Carlos Morcate is making a different mis-
take cocking his wrist on the backcast and getting the

Admiralty

Law


A legal maritime

lesson from moi

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
This month is Mother's Day, and like
many of you, I had a mom who offered a
great deal of advice while I was growing
up. A lot of it had to do with proper dress,
basic manners, and probably most impor-
tantly, general safety.
Like many of you, I didn't always
follow mom's advice, and then learned to
regret it. Even now, I think of certain sit-
uations and wish I'd have considered
some of my mother's wise counsel before
I acted.
A fine example of motherly advice
with relevance in maritime law is the
"Don't pick up hitchhikers!" warning.
Here's a hypothetical scenario
demonstrating how useful this piece of
advice can be:
Let's say it was a perfectly fine
weekend to take your boat to the
Bahamas or another island nation off
U.S. shores. While you're having fun at
this foreign port, you happen to run into
a casual acquaintance. After this person
joins your table, buys you a refreshing
beverage and adds to the festive atmos-
phere with some witty conversation, he
states that he needs a ride back to Florida.
And, without a moment's hesitation, you
volunteer the services of your vessel to
assist the kindly fellow.
Upon your return to U.S. waters,
customs comes on board your vesseland
checks your documents and ID's every-
one on the boat. Sadly, it appears that
your witty acquaintance is an illegal
alien. And you, as owner and captain of
the boat that brought the alien into the
country, have been arrested for smug-
gling. Your vessel will now be detained
and held by federal authorities.
Certainly, getting yourself and your
vessel out of this troubling situation


?0.-


could prove to be both time-consuming
and costly. Just as certainly, had the voice
in your head recalled some old motherly
advice before returning to the U.S., this
troubling situation might have been
avoided completely.
Mom's cautions about hitchhikers
shouldn't apply only when dealing with
folks at a foreign port. Let's say, hypo-
thetically, you spy in the water what
appears to be people in distress in a drift-
ing boat or raft. Yes, your initial inclina-
tion as a good Samaritan might be to
bring them on board your vessel.
However, in such a case, it's not just the
illegal alien scenario you should worry
about.
Drifting boats and rafts have, in the
past, been used as a ruse by modern day
pirates to gain access to vessels.
There also exists some very practical
concerns regarding communicable dis-
eases and close contact with strangers
(I'll bet your mother warned you about
that, too). Moreover, there is even a pos-
sibility that someone can be held liable
for negligence for any personal injury or
death from a rescue operation if it can be
shown that the rescuer's conduct was
reckless or wanton; or resulted in a wors-
ening of the victim's condition.
So rather than take these distressed
castaways on board your vessel, it would
probably be better if you can get close
enough to assess the situation (and no
closer) and try to communicate with
them.
Once you have a good idea of what's
going on, call the closest local authorities
(probably the Coast Guard), and give
them as much information as possible,
including location and the assessment of
danger to yourself and the people in dis-

such conduct would have pleased my mom.
In light of the present geopolitical situation, dealings

ports should be handled with the cautions and the com-

not being sentimental it's just a good idea.

Coral ref grie: Nw IMA film shows b, MAYp2003

Coral reef grief: New IMAX film shows beauty, perils


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
FORT LAUDERDALE Coral reefs in South Florida
may not be as dramatic as those of the South Pacific, but
local marine leaders say the reef's ecological and eco-
nomic impact locally is often overlooked.
With the film, "Coral Reef Adventure," now playing
at the IMAX Theatre in Fort Lauderdale, reef preserva-
tionists and marine industry leaders hope greater focus
might be given to better understanding and saving the pre-
cious natural wonder.
"While the coral reefs in the Keys get most of the
media attention, there are reefs right off of Broward
County's shoreline that are important and other reefs in
other areas of the state," said Richard Dodge, dean of
Nova Southeastern University's Oceanographic Center.
"The economic impact of the reefs for both recreation
and commercial fishing is very important, as well as their
ecological importance in protecting against erosion as
well as being a source of new sand," he said, adding that
Broward's reefs off Dania Beach are valuable as a habitat
for marine life.
Dodge, who is a key figure in the National Coral Reef


UroM


Institute, said Nova is now helping to map reefs in Florida
using aerial photography, and promoting reef protection
and preservation worldwide.
Frank Herhold, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida, said the group's
focus on clean waterways includes the value of coral reefs
and an effort to educate both commercial and private
boaters of their fragility. Dodge serves on the MIAFS
board of directors to provide what Herhold called a "good
professional perspective" on the issue.
Dodge detailed Nova's work in the area of coral reefs
when he spoke recently at a special screening of the
"Coral Reef Adventure" at the Museum of Discovery and
Science in Fort Lauderdale.
The event, hosted by the MIASF, focused on how
global warming, pollution, ship grounding, disease and
other factors are killing reefs in all parts of the world, and
tells of efforts by the National Coral Reef Task Force to
monitor reef threats and promote protection, which in
some areas includes curbing overfishing.
"We need to understand what the reef is a living
organism and use it wisely," Dodge said. "Boaters need
to be aware of simple things like using mooring balls
rather than dropping anchors."
Though "Coral Reef Adventure" doesn't target reefs
in South Florida, the message to protect and conserve
reefs everywhere is clear.
The film, shown on the five-story tall IMAX screen,
offers a breathtaking view of life on the reef. With spec-
tacular colors and unique sea life, shown are some of the
world's best-known reefs in the South Pacific. The 46-
minute film is narrated by film star Liam Neeson and has
music from Crosby, Stills & Nash.
The film has other distinctions. It had 106 miles of

Two scenes of fragile coral reefs from the IMAX film,
"Coral Reef'Adventure."
film shot (the most ever for an IMAX production); it cost
more than $10 million to make (the most expensive IMAX
film); the filming discovered five new fish species, and it
is the first time filmmakers are characters in an IMAX
documentary. Projections say the film will have an audi-
ence up to 20 million in 20 countries.
Howard and Michele Hall, husband-wife cinematog-
rapher team, spent 10 months and made 500 dives to
record on film the undersea world of reefs, some healthy
and some not. It's estimated that scientists have visited
only about 10 percent of the world's reefs, so the Halls
were able to expand that percentage with their adventure.
"When a reef dies, billions of other things die too,"
said Michele Hall.
Howard Hall said some reefs may be gone within the
next 30 years due to global warming, disease, over fishing
and pollutants like silt getting into the reefs from things
like timber cutting. It's estimated that 10 percent of the
world's reefs have died in the last four years and another
25 percent are in danger today.
"Through their eyes, you really understand why peo-
ple fall in love with the ocean and the coral reefs," said
film director Greg MacGillivary of the Halls, who have
been diving and filming for more than 30 years and win-
ners of seven Emmys for television film work.
This is the first IMAX film of its kind to deal with the
coral reefs'and follows the Halls as the\ travel from the
Great Bamer Reef off Auitralia to reefs in Fiji and TahJl
In Fiji, the camera goes dbwni370 feet a record for an
IMAX camera to record the living reef that is being
threatened by pollutants.
Michelle Hall saidit-has taken 60 million years to cre-
ate reefs, living organisms that attract all sorts of fish
dependent on the reef for their own existence. Howard
notes that the reef "is the largest living structure on earth
built by the smallest of animals."
The Halls said that while they knew the adventure would
be more exciting than anything they had done, they also hope
the film will show "people how beautiful nature is...and cre-
ate a sense of value that in turn inspires conservation."
"Coral Reef Adventure" will be playing at the IMAX
Theatre for the rest of 2003. Further information is avail-
able by calling 954-713-0915.

Gold medal win leads student rower to more hard work


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
While most high school students will spend their
summer vacation enjoying time off, Erica Dobin will
work at becoming a better champion rower.
The 16-year-old Pine Crest School sophomore won a
gold medal this winter at the World Indoor Rowing
Championships in Boston.
"I was so happy to have won the medal, but more
importantly I realized how much my coaches, fellow ath-
letes and family were all a part of that victory," said Erica,
of Fort Lauderdale.
This summer she plans to improve her skills.
"Rowing is a team sport and requires exact coordination
along with tremendous physical and psychological
strength," she said.
Erica will travel to the U.S. Naval Academy at
Annapolis, Md. this summer and then to Cornell
University in Ithaca, N.Y. to participate in special rowing
training camps, where she'll compete against the best
high school and colleges rowers across the country.
She's one of the youngest people to ever place first in
the women's coxswain world competition. That means
she sat down on a rowing machine, also called an ergome-
ter, and duplicated rowing movements so fast and so hard
that after 2,000 meters she was faster than anyone else.
Her time was 8 minutes and 2 seconds.
"I was exhausted when I was finished and just fell
over," Erica said.
Her father, Dan Dobin, explained that the physical
pressure is so hard for such a short time that the body is
"wiped out. We were so proud of her," he said.
Erica doesn't fit the traditional mold of a champion
rower, who's usually tall and very muscular. She is bare-
ly five feet tall and a slim 116 pounds.
"When I started crewing, some people told me to give
up because I wasn't big enough," said Erica, who jointed
her school crewing team three years ago after she tired of
school gymnastics. "But being smaller than the other
crew that just made me more determined."
She's not only able to row on either side of the boat

as part of Pine Crest's crewing team, but she also can
serve as the coxswain the person at the bow of the boat
leading the rowing crew in unison to navigate the craft in
the right direction. She likes the teamwork involved in
crewing as opposed to the more individualized sports she


was involved in before rowing.
Pine Crest, a private school in Fort Lauderdale from
grades kindergarten through 12th, has been a leader in the
state for developing an extensive crewing program and is
the only high school in the state with its own boat house,
which opened only a year ago.
Crew Coach Josh Fien-Helfman, a Princeton graduate
who has led the Pine Crest program for the past year, said
rowing is a growing sport. The school's student involve-
ment has doubled in the past few years with 66 active ath-
letes nearly split equal between males and females.
"This summer we will host our own rowing camp to
introduce the sport to any high school students who want
to come," said Fien-Helfman. The camp runs Aug. 4-8
and students will use the school's eight custom-made
boats, which are 60 feet long and weigh 120 pounds.
They can hold eight athletes.
School leaders believe strong athletics also promotes
strong academic achievement, and a crewing program
may help open college doors for some Pine Crest gradu-
ates.
Erica is uncertain what rowing will mean to her
future.
"I don't think about Olympic Games or things like
that way in the future," she said, noting her small size
would probably never get her qualified. "I want to go to
college and maybe crewing will help open a door."
Until that happens, Erica will train four hours a day
and maintain the discipline it takes to excel in the sport.
"I have met so many great people and enjoy the team
aspect of crewing," she explained. "And 'sinning is
always nice."

Declining fish population prompts long public debate


:Mvi'lail1li'ii
you think of the potential management actions?"
The answers are supposed to guide the creation of
another draft management plan, that one to focus on which
alternatives mentioned get the most public support.
In 14 separately identified fish issues, covering sport
and commercial fishing, lobster and crab trapping, diving
and spearfishing, the Park Service asks participants to
choose one from four sets of future conditions. The proposi-
tion is to let the public decide what it wants, then leave the
rest to the Park Service.
For example, on the issue of abundance and size of fish
in the future, participants are asked to make one choice from
this list:
*Maintain the fishery to match similar habitats outside
park boundaries, taking no action unless fishing gets worse
in the park than outside it.
*Raise fish abundance and size by at least 10 percent
(compared to outside the park) and manage the fishery to
maintain that difference.
*Make that 20 percent, not 10.
*Your own idea if you have a better one.
How would such objectives be achieved?
"Specific actions would likely be species-specific," the
draft says, meaning that if something drastic has to be done
about a grouper crisis, snapper won't be dragged into it.
"The least restrictive measures would be used."
It says action could include raising minimum size lim-
its for fish, reducing bag limits, limiting the number of recre-
ational and/or commercial fishers, imposing stricter bycatch
rules for commercial fishing, and seasonal or space closings
to prevent interference with fish reproduction, or give an
over-fished section some recovery time.
The wording appears to leave the park staff an opening
for larger closures in case the decline gets drastic.
Could that still happen?

Canzanelli promised no closings during the plan's five-
year tenure "unless we show a compelling level of evi-
dence that the fisheries are in such dire condition that they
need to be closed."
Fishing in the park is not that bad now. It's not so good
either.
Remember when the only size and bag limits in Florida
were on a few freshwater fish, and you could keep whatev-
er you caught from salt water? Little by little over the last 25
years or so, the state and federal agencies have imposed take
limits on virtually every species, so theoretically there
should still be plenty.
No, though. In the same time period the local popula-
tion has grown rampantly and public use of the park has
increased along with fishing pressure. Fishermen are aided
by sonar and GPS systems that make it easy to find fish and
return to the same spot next time.
From angler surveys at dockside to snorkeling by scien-
tists, data documents a continuing decline: not just fewer
fish but smaller ones, which continue being caught and kept
- some legally, some not-even though they are not mature
enough to reproduce. Four kinds of grouper, plus vermillion
and yellowtail snapper, are listed by the South Atlantic
Fishery Management Council as overfished.
But state inspectors doubt the accuracy of catch reports
that commercial fishermen are required to make. The pri-
mary on-water study, led by University of Miami marine sci-
entist Jerald S. Ault in 2001, did not satisfy a scientific peer
review panel. Members thought the basic conclusion may be
correct that many species appear overfished and need more
restrictive regulation but it will be hard to defend that with'
only the data that Ault reported.
All the same, there seems to be enough smoke to satis-
fy skeptics that there's really a fire down there. Sport and
commercial fishers who spoke up at last year's public meet-
ings thought so on the basis of their own experience. The
peer review panel, despite its criticisms, said Ault's team

was on the right track about catch rates and fish sizes.
"One of the things we're doing added research on is
[the finding] that 71 percent of the 17 stocks analyzed
appear to be overfished," Canzanelli said. "The sizes of the
fish we're finding in the park are very small. They're close
to what the minimum harvest level is. More people are
catching smaller and less desirable species, so there are
fewer of the desirable species being caught."

Up close
The National Park Service wants your advice about
solving fishing and habitat problems at Biscayne
National Park. A previous round of public complaints and
suggestions has been converted to a list of potential man-
agement actions for a five-year plan that's supposed to
solve the problems.
Park users are being asked to choose the actions they
think best and offer their own ideas if they come up with
something better.
Biscayne National Park includes most of Biscayne
Bay south of Key Biscayne, the Stiltsville shoals, islands
from Soldier Key to the south and the ocean side out to
the reef line near the Gulf Stream.
If your boating and fishing takes you into that terri-
tory, you have a stake in the management plan. Make
your views known by getting a questionnaire, filling it
out and sending it back to the Park Service by May 9.

Superstition, whimsy goes into deciding a boat's name


Lauderdale, said they didn't have to do much brain rack-
ing to come up with a name for their cutter-rigged sloop.
The couple settled on No Worries. "We lived in
Australia," said Janis Walkow. "There, No Worries is the
equivalent of no problem, that's okay, I understand. They
use it for everything and frequently."
The Walkows also used Mate, another term from
Down Under meaning buddy, for their dingy.
"It came to us fairly quickly," said Janis Walkows, of
both names. "To me, the name needed to be something
that was in reference to some part of our lives, a reminder
of the good part of our life. A boat is a very large invest-
ment. It's important to have a name that's meaningful, that
you like and enjoy."
Others seem to enjoy the name, No Worries, too. The
couple have received plenty of comments.
"The most interesting was when we were bringing the
boat from South Carolina to Fort Lauderdale in 1999," she
said. "We heard several bridgetenders say, 'I can under-
stand you would have no worries in that boat."'
While coming up with the right name can create a lot


While coming up with the
right name can create a lot of joy,
there are rules.

of joy, there are rules. A few boaters believe that renam-
ing a boat can bring bad luck. However, not too many
seem to be all that superstitious.
"A lot of my clients who have bought used boats
couldn't wait to get the old name off," Christopher said.
"All it did was remind them that is wasn't their boat."
Other clients, who named their vessel after a loved
one, request a name change after a breakup, she said.
For those who do believe in superstitions, there is a
name changing ceremony.
"It calls for a lot of champagne," Christopher said.
Dillon of the Gulfstream Sailing Club, a Deerfield
Beach resident and owner of a 32-foot sailboat, said he
kept the vessel's name, Eureka, after buying it from the
previous owner. But his decision had nothing to do with
guarding against bad luck.

Fishing workshops show students how to tackle technique


same messy results. Carlos is a guy who can laugh at him-
self, a skill that comes in handy here.
"This is something you see a lot of people doing,"
Morcate says, meaning flycasting. "I've been watching it
on the Sports Channel. The other day I bought a rod and
some flies. I went out to a lake in front of my house and
wrapped the line around myself and caught the hook on the


back of my shirt."
He would do it here too, if we had hooks. Now he
knows why we wear hats.
"You can't cast slack line," Charlie tells him, demon-
strating how the rod and line both flop around with a
cocked-wrist backcast. Carlos also isn't pausing on the
backcast, another reason the line doesn't straighten out
behind him. He hurries it forward, flinging the line into a
big, messy circle.
Richter explains that the casting stroke is supposed to
eliminate slack in the line, not create it: "The rod must move
in a straight line. If it moves in an arc, so will the line."
For the Schultes, this is their second session with
Richter.
"I felt much more comfortable today," Debbie says.
"I'm getting the hang of it, but I'm still going too fast."
Chuck Mink knows he has to stop his backcast sooner:
"I got a couple of good cats, but no consistency. He's good
at it," he adds, indicating his son, who repeats the ultimate
wisdom of flycasting:
"It takes a lot of practice."


Debbie and Ross Schulte practice carrying out Richter's
orders to perfect their backcasting strokes. Ross is
slightly out of focus, but so is his technique here. Debbie
does it right -bracing the handle against her forearm,
which keeps her wrist straight, and lets her line put a
proper bend in the rod on the backcast.


Bill Curtis demonstrates the backcast for Shawn
Rommerdahl and his daughter Kiersta, who'slO.

The Chesapeake: Maritime history and decoy ducks


Uyint


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Ancient Egypt's King Tut had one tucked into his
tomb. When the colonists landed in North America, they
discovered Native Americans hunting with their own ver-
sions of decoy ducks sticks and bark disguised with
feathers and painted with berry juices.
These days one of the largest and most famous U.S.
collections of antique decoys is housed in Havre de Grace
in northern Maryland. Set on the town's southeastern tip
and at the head of the Chesapeake Bay, last year nearly
20,000 visitors stopped by the brick-over-stucco museum
to marvel at the exhibit displays and learn about the gen-
uine American folk art of decoy carving.
Havre de Grace is as intriguing as it is picturesque.
Marquis de Lafayette named it approaching its shores
shortly after the Revolutionary War. In admiring the des-
tination from the river, he is said to have remarked: "Ah,
le havre de grace" (harbor of mercy.)
Here, where the Susquehanna River and the
Chesapeake Bay converge, sits a charming town rich in
maritime heritage with a delightful mix of restaurants,
cafes, specialty shops, museums and more than 800 his-
toric structures.
It rose to prosperity as a mercantile center in the mid-
1800s, a major hub for water-related commerce and recre-
ational activities. Few buildings survived the British
torch in the War of 1812 but many examples of architec-
tural styles favored by the 19th-century wealthy mer-
chants have been retained and now serve as offices and
homes.
At the Chesapeake Wooden Boat Builders School,
students are taught skills to build, restore and conserve
wooden boats. Restored in 1955, the Martha Lewis is one
of the few remaining working dredge boats that make up
the Chesapeake Bay oyster fleet- the last to fish com-
mercially under sail in the U.S. The vessel is a window of


Here, where the Susquehanna River
and the Chesapeake Bay converge,

maritime heritage

history on the unique bay (the world's largest estuary)
with her discovery classrooms for estuarine study and
environmental explorations.
A wonderful walking town;,Havre de Grace showcas-
es an array of alluring architecture. Victorian and Gothic-
style buildings are plentiful along Union Avenue, as are
Flemish bond brick walls, gracefully arched windows,
Georgian townhomes and slate-covered hip-roofs.
Try lunch at the Tidewater Grill, and MacGregor's
Restaurant and Tavern, just off Washington Street, the
main drag. Both specialize in superb seafood selections
and lovely views of the Susquehanna. One block over on


Union Avenue, the Crazy Swedes is calling. The landmark
restaurant offers casual yet delicious dining, plenty of his-
tory and a chance to chat up with some the locals over a
drink or two.
Just down the road is the Spencer Silver Mansion.
This random granite B&B is the town's only High
Victorian residence with two-story bay windows, a tower
and four-gabbled copper and slate roof.
Built in 1896, there's a waterfront veranda that gives
visitors a soothing view of the Chesapeake Susquehanna
State Park. The Vandiver Inn, an 1886 Queen Anne
Victorian mansion with five multi-flued chimneys, is the
most expensively restored residence in town only two
blocks from the bay.
Wander about the shops on Washington Street where
Tapestries & Treasures offers highest quality hand-woven
tapestries from France, Italy and Belgium. Some of them
have appeared on the set of daytime soap, "As The World

thousands of intricate, hand carved decoys nestled togeth-
er behind a glass-enclosed display. There is also a fasci-
nating display of the types of guns and boats used in the
1800s for duck hunting.
Decoys have been around as long as people have
hunted the birds they mimic. Set out on water in fields,
decoys are meant to lure their "fellows" from the sky
above with the illusion of safe haven or good feeding. In
essence, the decoys attract the flying birds into gun
hunter's sights.

Decoys have been around as
long as people have hunted
the birds they mimic....
the decoys attract the flying birds
into gun hunter's sights.

Most mornings inside the Carver's Woodshop visitors
will find a cluster of master carvers and backyard crafts-
men from the Upper Chesapeake Bay region. They work
short-bladed knives whittling the surface of tupelo pine or
other soft woods in the painstaking process of carving the
shapely curves of the pintail drake.
The body of the duck may take a week's time to
sculpt and sand smooth, then the feather marks are burned
and the decoy is coated with enamel. Finally, the carving
is brought to life with the subtle blue-greens and browns
of a living bird.
Rimming the Decoy Museum is a winding, mile-long
wood-plank walkway that allows visitors to keep an eye
out for a great blue heron or perhaps an eastern painted
turtle, all the while taking in the majestic sights of the
upper Chesapeake Bay.

Beaches off limit during
Shore birds and sea turtles nest, so you can't, from May
1 to Sept.15 on two islands ofBiscayne National Park.
Boca Chita's beaches are off limits to protect the nests of
loggerhead and hawksbill turtles and a variety of shore birds
that also nest there. Where killdeer nest in the upland grass,
you must stay outside a 10-by-10-foot perimeter around each
nest. Access to the key is okay from the boat basin on the
west shore. Walk as if on eggs.
Ragged Key No. One, where the least tern nests, used to


turtle nesting season
be occupied by up to 50 nesting couples at a time. Humans
are believed to have scared many away. The Ragged Keys,
five tiny islets immediately north of Boca Chita, are on flats
favored by bonefish and permit. Fish for them, but don't go
ashore.
Soldier, Arsenicker, West Arsenicker and parts of Sands
Key, plus the islands in Sandwich Cove, are closed year-
around for wildlife nesting protection.
