National powerboat race accelerates into Ft. Lauderdale
Open slot brings Grand Prix
to local waters
BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Do you feed on speed? If so, the first-ever Fort
Lauderdale Offshore Gran Prix could make your heart race.
Some 25,000 people are expected to watch about 80
catamarans and vee bottoms compete on Oct. 3 and 4 off
Fort Lauderdale beach, said Michelle May-Schmidt, race
Fans can expect the race to "officially become the
largest fleet to hit the shores of South Florida in the power
boating industry," she said.
The city will be the next to last stop on the APBA
Offshore Powerboat Racing's national tour. The series will
have its finale Oct. 16 to 18 in St. Petersburg.
The upcoming competition was originally to be a south-
east divisional event for APBA Offshore Powerboat Racing,
the entity that sanctions events nationwide.
"We were going to go national next year," Schmidt said.
But an open slot was created when the North American
Championships for the Grand Bahamas was moved from
Sept. 27 to 30 to April 16 to 18. The space needed to be filled
and the APBA looked to Fort Lauderdale, said Schmidt, who
has worked on the event since November, 2002.
Schmidt intends to build the race into a major annual
showcase for the sport and the city. Next year, she plans to
expand the race from two to four days.
In other areas of the country, national pro series races
have drawn large crowds. In places such as Sarasota and
Savannah, up to 200,000 spectators attend a four to five
"My plan is to have it grow to the extent of the air and sea
show," Schmidt said, referring to the massive display of mili-
tary might that is held on Fort Lauderdale beach each May.
Randy Hegwood, national operations manager for APBA
Powerboat Racing, said the organization made the right
choice when picking Fort Lauderdale to fill the open slot
"It's such a great area for power boating:' he said. "It's
With shorter courses and being closer to the beach, fans
will be able to see the entire race, Hegwood said.

dren from Kids in Distress on his boat.
"Most of us are very excited about race the being in Fort

from Florida and for the City of Fort Lauderdale."
Santiago had high praise for the city and its amenities.
"They have one of best boat shows in the world and plenty

Higher number of marine patrol officers in Florida's future
Newly allocated funds
to increase manpower
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
In the coming years, it should become riskier for
scofflaw skippers to get gaffed for speeding in manatee
protection zones, prop-chopping sea grasses, violating
wake restrictions, hoarding undersize fish and scooting
Half of the 10 new marine patrol officers hired next
year the first ones paid for with marine fuel tax rev-
enue will be posted to Florida's southwest coastal
zone. Two will patrol Lee County waters and one each
will go to Manatee, Collier and Charlotte Counties, the
chief of enforcement for the Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission told the Waterfront News.
Of the five others, one will be assigned to Broward
County and two each to Duval and Brevard.
This is the start of a five-year plan to add 29 enforce-
ment positions to the agency formerly called the Florida
Marine Patrol, those gray-clad water cops there never
seem to be enough of.
"Next [fiscal] year we plan, pending any substantial
changes, 'to add one officer each to Palm Beach, Lee,
Brevard, Volusia, Indian River, Hillsborough, and
Pinellas," said Fish & Wildlife's Maj. Jim Brown.
That would put 17 new officers in 12 of the state's 34
coastal counties in a two-year period.
In case you're wondering, Why there? Why not here?
Here's Brown's answer:
"The criteria used to place the officers were historical
- boat-related manatee deaths, vessel accident rates and
illegal net-related activity," Brown said. "The priorities
were set based on today's needs. We purposely did not
project beyond year two, based on the possibility of
change, and we want to be able to adapt if our needs
Right now, the only plan downstream after the second
year is to add four officers, somewhere, in each of the next

Spectators continue to discover Columbus Regatta
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
The Columbus Day Regatta, a long time popular tradi-
tion in South Florida's boating community, will set sail on
Oct. 11 and 12 for its annual race through Biscayne Bay.
The competition begins at 10 a.m. each day. Yachts
will start in the vicinity of the Rickenbacker Causeway on
Oct. 11 and race down the bay, toward the East Featherbed
Bank at Biscayne National Park.
The following day, participants will leave the East
Featherbed Bank and head back toward the Rickenbacker
Causeway, according to the race committee's web site.
Race officials were unavailable for comment.
Boaters have until Oct. 4 to register. No entries will be
accepted after that date. The cost is $75 if registering by
Sept. 28. The fee then rises to $90. USSA members, who
provide a copy of their membership cards, will receive a

and family cruiser.

The race, now entering its 49th year, is billed as the
state's "oldest sporting event afloat."
Prior to Hurricane Andrew in 1992, the competition
drew around 700 entries. But because the storm destroyed
a lot of boats and damaged marinas, those numbers have
decreased, according to race committee members.
In 2001, the race attracted 170 boats. Last year, orga-
nizers said they were expecting some 200 entries.
Still, the race is very well received and much antici-
pated event, say organizers.
Although the number of participants has dropped over
the years, the regatta has continued to draw thousands of
spectator boats, which anchor overnight at Biscayne
But race committee members have gone to great
lengths to disassociate themselves from spectators. They
have claimed these boaters and their guests come out to
party, not to watch or root for the entries.

day weekend, as well as numerous arrests and several
grounding incidents, said Biscayne National Park Ranger
To provide for the safety of park visitors and
resources, special measures are again being undertaken by
park rangers, such as the additional presence of several
law enforcement agencies including the U.S. Coast
Guard, Florida Marine Patrol and the Miami-Dade Marine
Patrol being out in full force, Gonshor said.
Officers will conduct such activities as BWI check-
points and boat safety checks. Idle speed will also be
enforced throughout the Intracoastal Waterway, she said.
Other measures being taken that weekend will be an
anchorage area set up near Elliot Key, along with an infor-
mation barge manned by park staff.
The barge will double as a lost swimmers area.
"If people are lost, then they can wait on the barge until
someone in their party comes to get them," Gonshor said.
Rangers also want visitors to take note not to relocate
their boats after dark, she said.
"Because the three fatalities that occurred last year
happened in the evening, we are advising people not to
move their boats after sunset," Gonshor said.

s oscar-time: Fishin fo records
It's oscar-time: Fishing for fame by breaking records
By ARNOLD MARKOWLTZ
Waterfront News Writer
"How would you like to set a world record?" Martin
"Oh boy! Who do I have to kill?"
No, that is what I would have said if I were clever. What
I did say was something like, "uh...okay, I guess."
We were fishing on a Miami-Dade drainage canal, a
stretch with only half a mile of navigability between
Tamiami Trail and West Flagler Street, where a low culvert
blocks the way north. It runs alongside a busy suburban
avenue, near the town of Sweetwater. If stopped in traffic
there, you might wish for a fishing rod, but on second look
you'd think, nah, there can't be anything fit to fish for.
You would be wrong. Right there, on Thursday morning,
March 27, Arostegui broke one of his own six world records
- each in a different leader tippet class, for oscars caught on
a fly rod. All those records were vacant until Arostegui began
fishing for oscars last year.
There was a seventh record, a vacant one waiting for
someone to claim it That's the one Marty offered me, the one
that's mine now.
I've stalled writing about it while waiting for the
International Game Fish Association to certify the catch. You
know how it goes: brag prematurely and someone's sure to
beat your feat before it's even listed in the record book. My
oscar, and a record Arostegui set the same day, were listed in
the September-October number of the IGFA's semi-monthly
If you're a saltwater purist, you may not know the
mighty oscar, and so can scarcely appreciate the singularity
of this remarkable catch:
Weight, a pound-and-a-quarter. Leader, 20-pound-test.
If anybody ever did that on purpose before, he kept quiet
about it, probably to avoid groupies, tabloid photographers
and inappropriate product endorsements the sordid down-
sides of celebrity.
Freshwater anglers, seeking largemouth bass or butterfly
peacock, catch oscars by accident and consider them nui-
sances. Using heavy bait casting or spinning rods with the
flexibility of a dock piling, they can't know how game a fish

examine the record-breaking catch.
If a fish had a rig like that, it could reel you in.
Not that a 20-pound leader is a huge challenge. Or the
six-weight fly rod that Arostegui handed me. It's a short
stick, its seven and-a-half foot length ideal for the narrow
canals, like our oscar place. For that kind of fishing, you want
a compact cast.
Our record-setting day began at 8 a.m., opening time at
Antonio Maceo Park in the 5100 block of Northwest Seventh
Street, on the Blue Lagoon group of lakes near Miami
International Airport. It was Thursday, so we didn't have to
pay the $6 weekend fee to use the launching ramp.
The lakes are drained by the Tamiami Canal network.
Arostegui's favorite freshwater guide, butterfly peacock spe-
cialist Alan Zaremba, ran his bass boat west by'southwest,
made a right turn beneath the Palmetto Expressway and
headed further west, parallel to Tamiami Trail. After a cou-

pie of miles, he turned starboard into the side canal, shut
down his big outboard and engaged the electric trolling
motor. I joined Arostegui on the foredeck, peering into the
water like Indian scouts reading trail signs.
The water there is usually clear, even when the main
canal is turbid with mud, the roiling of flood-control water
releases and gunk-removal projects. Brazenly, we violated
the fishing' admonition that warns, "if you can see the fish, the
fish can see you."
Stalking oscars, you can be bold. They are either too
proud or too dumb to be scared off by the sight of people on
"There," Arostegui said, pointing toward the canal's
shallow eastern edge, behind a house with a concrete block
seawall and overhanging deck, topped by a chain-link fence.
A few broken blocks lay on the bottom debris to you,
cover to a fish.
Zaremba backed the boat off a few yards, far enough to
lay down a cast, close enough to keep the fish in sight
To the 20-pound leader, Marty already had tied a small,
lightly weighted epoxy-head fly the color of root beer with a
sparse white tail feather.
"This is a bonefish fly," I declared. Nobody argued.
Marty had added to it a weed guard made of stiff monofila-
ment line, to prevent snagging if it fell on one of those
First, he demonstrated the casting technique he had mas-
tered: A short throw, slack-free, with the fly alighting right
above the visible fish and sinking close to its face. He point-
ed the rod tip down to the water surface. With the other hand
he twitched the line, not the rod, to make the fly look alive.
Easy for him to do, not so easy to copy. After seven or
eight inaccurate casts, I lost count. Most were wide left or
wide right, some too short and a few too long, hooking the
"Good shot" Marty would say when a cast came close.

Oscar brings world-wide recognition to enterprising angler
"Again" he would say when the fish ignored it.
The coaching was persistent: "A little to the left. Not that
far. Again. Let it drop. Now strip."
I kept my pants on. In fly fishing, stripping is retrieving
line in strokes with your non-casting hand. For oscars, the
strokes are short and slow enough for the fish to catch the fly
from behind without much effort. They don't chase a fast-
I missed a strike, then another.
In any sort of fly fishing, timing is crucial. When is the
right moment to set the hook? Before the fish realizes it's
being fooled. It's good to remind yourself that the fish's reac-
tion time is faster than yours.
"When you see him go for it, set," Alan Zaremba said.
"If you wait to feel the bite, it's too late. He's spit it out
It seemed to me that the oscar saw the bonefish fly as a
trespasser and was satisfied to dart after it just enough to shoo
Zaremba said it was becoming suspicious of the fly by
degrees: "The fish becomes harder to catch, because it's not
going to hold the fly very long."
;,When you keep casting and keep missing, there's a ten-
dency to get impatient, which makes you careless. Your casts
get worse instead of better. Arm-weary, I stopped a couple of
times to settle myself down.
Persistence paid off, though. I hooked one, too small to
meet the IGFA's one-pound minimum. Then I hooked a big-
The oscar put a respectable bend in Marty's fly rod, and
in his skilledeye too. He predicted it would weigh more than
Once I got it out of the water, he moved quickly with his
tape measure. We wanted to release the fish alive.
"Twelve!" he called out for the length. Inches, you know.
"Ten!" That was the girth.
To weigh it, he used a Boga-Grip, a pricey device that
grabs a fish by the lip without causing injury and contains a
scale that meets IGFA's strict standards of accuracy.
Arostegui has the thing certified annually.
"One pound, four ounces," he called out. We high-fived.
"I have another record on my boat!" Zaremba shouted.
Next,-I had to climb off-the boat onto the canal bank to
verify the weight and pose for a picture with the fish still sus-
Like tournament competition, fishing for records isn't
for everyone. Some may find the paperwork onerous, or
the quest inconsistent with the intangible motives for fish-
Still, if most of your fishing is for a few species, it's
worth knowing what the records are. It's no trouble to rig
your tackle fly, spinning, trolling, whatever to IGFA
specifications and follow the other rules. That way, just in
case you catch a record-size fish, it will be qualified-if you
decide to submit it.
You can find record applications.and IGFA rules for
every type of tackle on the website, www.igfa.org. Only, a
pended from the scale.
Why not do that on the boat? IGFA rules say you have
to be standing on firm ground.
"If you're out on a boat with 12-foot seas, the weight of
a fish will change by two or three pounds as the boat goes.up
and down," Marty explained. "You have to weigh it on land.
When I'm fishing for records at Flamingo, we look for shal-
low water, so I'm standing on land even if it's under water."
Arostegui knows the IGFA rules probably as well as
anyone. Last time I looked up his scores, in mid-September,
there were so many Arostegui entries they could have been
mistaken for misprints.
Marty at that time held 25 IGFA records, his wife,
Roberta and daughter, Danielle, 11 each, and son Martini, 9.
They're not all oscars, either. Dad's records include a 76-
pound tiger shark caught on a 12-pound fly leader in 2001. If
you spend any time at Bass Pro Outdoor World's fly shop,
you'll notice a photo of a man and a fish posted behind the
counter. That's Arostegui with a swordfish he caught on a fly
When it was his turn to fish for a record oscar, I was
ready to be impressed. Not so much by the size of the fish -
a two-pounder would be an exceptional specimen but by
the brilliance of Arostegui's technique. He was trying to
break his own record for a leader tip of six-pound test.
If no-catch casts could be weighed, Marty made a ton of
them, probably near as many as I did. The biggest difference?
Where most of mine had been off-target, nearly all of his
were close to the threshold of his chosen fish's patience, but
it seemed indifferent.

"Now he's seen it," Zaremba would say, and the oscar
seemed to sneer. This happened many times. Once, Marty
thought he had it hooked but a yellow plastic bag got in the
way and the fish escaped.
At last, he scored. He caught one that weighed a pound
and-a-half for another record.
A couple of weeks later we took another ride together, to
IGFA headquarters in Dania Beach. We brought our flies,
leaders and an inch of fly line with the leader still knotted
on to Doug Blodgett, who's in charge of investigating and
certifying record applications. We brought our application
forms, witnessed by one another and by Zaremba. We
brought prints of the photos. Blodgett repeated what
Arostegui had already told me, that the process would take
five.or six months.
Three days and three weeks after we set our dual
records, Arostegui was back on the canal with Zaremba and
broke two more of his own oscar records for fly.rod. Each
fish weighed a pound-and-a half, one caught on an eight-
pound leader tip and the other on 16-pound. And two days
after that, fishing near Flamingo with guide Eric Herstedt, he
caught another fly rod record a 26-pound whaler shark on
Arostegui, the first to learn that the catches were certi-
fied, notified me at once.
I think that you have to catch a bigger one now," he
wrote by e-mail. "Can't rest on past accomplishments."

Seamen are wai
of the court
By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Early in the 19th century, the famed
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story
first referred to seamen as the wards of the
admiralty, (i.e., "wards of the court"). The
good judge bestowed this title on seamen
for a number of reasons. Here's how he
phrased it in the 1823 landmark case of
Harden vs. Gordon:
"Seamen are by the peculiarity of their
lives liable to sudden sickness from change
of climate, exposure to perils, and exhaust-
ing labour. They are generally poor and
friendless, and acquire habits of gross
indulgence, carelessness, and improvi-
dence. If some provision be not made for
them in sickness at the expense of the ship,
they must often in foreign ports suffer the
accumulated evils of disease and poverty ...
"Their common earnings in many
instances are wholly inadequate to provide
for the expense of sickness; and if liable be
so applied, the great motives for good
behaviour might be ordinarily taken away
by pledging their future as well as past.
wages for the redemption of the debt."
As we can see, Story considered sea-
men's work difficult and tedious, and that
it gave way to a lifestyle that made those
who worked on ships ill-equipped to deal
with sophisticated business matters. So,
when issues of sickness and/or injury were
a concern, the judge ruled that they were a
charge to be placed upon the ship and its
owners based partially on the following
"...these expenses are a charge upon
the ship, the interest of the owner will be
immediately connected with that of the
seaman. The master will watch over their
health with vigilance and fidelity. He will
take the best methods, as well as to prevent
diseases, as to ensure speedy recovery
from them. He will never be tempted to
Cities have no legal basis to
abandon the sick to their forlorn fate; but
his duty, combining with that of the owner,
will lead him to succor their distress..."
Then, the justice further reasoned:
"Beyond this is the great public policy
of preserving this important class of citi-
zens for the commercial service and mar-
itime defence of the nation... Even the
merchant himself derives an ultimate ben-
efit from what may seem at first an oner-
ous charge. It encourages seamen to
engage in perilous voyages with more
promptitude and at lower wages. It dimin-
ishes the temptation to plunderage upon
the approaches of sickness and urges the
seaman to encounter hazards in the ships
service from which they might otherwise
be disposed to withdraw."
In. 1823, Story eloquently reiterated
that the ancient doctrine of a seaman's
right to maintenance and cure was the
tenet law in the United States and that the
nation's courts would be the protector and
champion of the "poor and friendless" sea-
men. In general theory, little has changed
concerning the pronouncements of that
19th century case.
To this day, seamen remain the wards
of the court and cannot contract their rights
away under maintenance and cure. So,
what are these rights?
As presently interpreted, a boat owner
is required -to provide for the medical
needs of a seamen working in the service
of a vessel (this often includes temporary
employment) for virtually any injury or ill-
ness incurred, or that becomes known, or
is exacerbated while the seaman is
employed by the vessel or working in the
service of the vessel whether or not
such injury or illness even originated on
Moreover, the boat owner is also gen-
, .iIE i. =
To the Editor:
The town of Stuart, Florida has just
passed a law that prohibits boaters from
anchoring or living aboard their boats on
the Intracoastal Waterway. They must
take a mooring at the city anchorage,
which in itself is deceiving.
All waterways belong to the federal
government and are entrusted to the
states for the use and enjoyment of the
public. Maritime law includes the right to
anchor. If the federal law has set no time
limit for the right to navigate, what gives
these towns the right to do so? From town
to town, the right of navigation is defined
as 24, 48, 72 or 96 hours. This is called
"shooting from the hip"- making it up
as they go without anything upon which
to base their decisions.
The waterways belong to the
American public and not to these small
town commissioners. It is a common per-
ception by these commissioners that
boaters who don't pay dockage or moor-
ing fees are freeloaders. What they fail to
take into account is that most boaters,
while anchored off a town or city, con-
tribute to the economy by spending
money on provisions, in restaurants,
hardware stores, boat supply stores, bars
and local points of interest.
Ordinances should not be enacted
out of fear. Passing this ordinance means
that if a homeowner/tax payer lives and
pays taxes in the city of Stuart but cannot
afford to pay the high cost of dockage or
mooring fees, he or she may be forced to
sell their boat. This is fundamentally
wrong. People with limited incomes have
as much right to enjoy the waterways as
those with money.
If people who buy homes on a water-
way don't want to see boats, maybe they
should consider living inland.
I am trying to get all boaters who
care about their rights to anchor on the
waterways of the United States to band
together and help support this fight.

Acquire land near Lake Okeechobee
for Everglades' water storage
To the Editor:
The many environmental and public
safety threats caused by high levels in
Lake Okeechobee are again in the news.
The question is where to move the sur-
plus water without creating other prob-
lems. Our long-range answer is to put it
south of the lake. That's where it used to
go before the Everglades was disrupted
by a massive drainage project that con-
verted a half million aces of wetlands
into the Everglades Agricultural Area
(E.A.A). Government should begin
working on this solution now.
This area, mostly in sugar cane, soon
will go-out-of-productior-because-the-soil -
is disappearing.: It is peat and muck,
which always erodes when drained. The
U.S. Geological Survey predicts the
remainder will be gone "within decades."
Then the area will go to urban develop-
ment unless government takes the oppor-
tunity to acquire it for water storage and
Everglades' restoration. Sending the
water into the EAA. is a much better

Risks led to legal safeguard known as 'maintenance and cure'
rally obligated to provide maintenance payments to a non-
working seaman (no matter how small that stipend may end
up) until maximum cure is reached, and sometimes even
beyond that point if suitable employment can't be found.
The basic principles of maintenance and cure include:
That the obligation of the vessel owner to provide
maintenance and cure is to be a broad and inclusive duty,
free of uncertainty, complexity and administrative burdens.
Any doubts as to entitlement, defenses, necessity of
medical treatment, and the attainment of maximum cure is
to be resolved in favor of the seaman.
That the undertaking to achieve maximum cure also
includes entitlement to therapeutic treatments.
As you can see, a vessel owner's obligations to, a sea-
man can appear as onerous today as 200 years ago. Perhaps
even more so, since medicine has become far more sophis-
ticated and expensive than it was in the days of sail. The
modem vessel owner (which, by the way, also includes own-
ers of recreational yachts with a crew) might also argue that
the system assumes an unsophisticated employee and is an
And yet, is it really that much different for the seaman?
Despite modem appurtenances on a vessel, the sea remains
the sea and is the same harsh taskmaster it always was. And,
how many out there will truly argue that going to sea is ever
a choice for the wise?
Before I attended law school, I worked as a crewmem-
ber for a now forgotten cruise line. Even though I was in one
of the more comfortable positions, working on a vessel has
its own rhythm and ways and can put you in unique dangers.
Nothing on land compares to it. Even though I was a
"sophisticated" college graduate at the time, I knew nothing
about my rights as a seaman or that I was part of a "special
class of citizens." Of course, now that I'm a lawyer I'm not
special at all!
The lesson here is simple: Seamen should know their
rights, and vessel owners need to know their obligations to
seamen. Justice Joseph Story would want it that way!

Lake Okeechobee land should be acquired
alternative than the one now proposed: attempt to store
Everglades water in 333 underground wells using high
cost, energy consuming technology never tried before on
such a scale.
Friends of the Everglades and other environmental
organizations, including the Everglades Coalition, long
have proposed the purchase solution. (Florida Senator
Bob Graham has suggested that government look into pur-
chasing development rights to avoid the catastrophe of
seeing a city rise in the heart of the Everglades.)
Reflooding would enable the area to serve as a natural
treatment marsh for the polluted lake water. Further, the
area could begin to restore itself as the headwaters of the
River of Grass.
Sending the water where it used to go is the best solu-
tion to the Lake Okeechobee problem and would be a
giant step toward true Everglades Restoration.

Funky, rustic charm has no cap at old Florida landmark

This is one in a series of articles about landmarks
and places of interest along South Florida's waterways.
This month's feature explores Cap's Place restaurant.
If she had her way, Talle Hasis would call her historic
family restaurant Club Unique, its original name when it
opened in 1929.
"Nothing has really changed here in all these years
and that, in itself, says something," said Hasis, a co-

the maps, in local history books and on the menu itself, is
Cap's Place. Long waiting lists of hungry patrons boat to
the restaurant, taking a temporary step back into old
Accessible only by water from a dock next to the
Lighthouse Point Yacht Basin & Marina, at 2765 NE 28th
Court, Cap's Place draws not only locals and tourists, but
also plenty of rich and famous patrons looking for an
interesting place to dine.
"People come here because it's so special and like no
place else, but we also have great food and we're proud of
both, said Hasis.
The restaurant is on Cap's Island, in the Intracoastal,
channel marker 69, north of the Hillsboro Inlet in
It was 74 years ago when two men who shared the
common bond of having run away from home as kids, met
and built a business now run by a second generation.
Eugene Theodore "Cap" Knight was a master seaman
who sailed big steamers between New York and New
Orleans. He settled in Hillsboro Beach where he operated
a successful sideline smuggling liquor from the Bahamas
during Prohibition. His brother, a lighthouse keeper, would
signal when the coast was clear to bring in the haul, which
was wrapped in burlap bags and sunk in Lake Placid.
In 1926, Knight met Al Hasis, a young man who had

the two decided to go into business.
Cap moved his illegal liquor business inland to a
peninsula bordered by the Intracoastal on the east and
Lake Placid on the west. Two years later the two men
secured an old barge, used by Henry Flagler to build his
Florida East Coast Railroad, that was beached at the site.
Using Dade County pine and scraps they collected here
and there, the two created Club Unique, which they
opened in 1929.

Ann Murray proudly admires a sign noting the designation
of greenspace in her honor in Fort Lauderdale's Tarpon
Over the years, she adopted the space by taking care of
it on a regular basis keeping it clear of debris and water-
ing the plants. Eventually a bench was placed near the river
with a great view of passing boat traffic.
A year ago, neighbor Joe Bellavance, touched by
Murray's efforts, prompted her friends and the groups she
was involved in to write letters of support to name the park
for her. Last January, the city agreed and ceremonies were
held and a sign erected in her honor. On hand for the event
was Mayor Jim Naugle, whom Murray had babysat for
when he was a kid.
"It was my 80th birthday gift," Murray said, as she
explained how her kids arranged to have the dedication cer-
emonies take place on her birthday. "Boy what a gift and

sales is being used for marine purposes including
research, safety, public education, waterway markers and

nearly all the money that Florida collected from fuel taxes

the state legislature that it wasn't fair.
The portion of fuel tax money going to. Fish and
Wildlife starts with $2.5 million in the fiscal year that
began Oct. 1. Then it scales upward to $13.4 million in the
fifth fiscal year, and levels off at that rate annually.
That is not a lionfish's share of the money the state
earns by taxing marine fuel, but it's a stout piece of the
estimated $37.9 million in taxes attributed to gasoline and
diesel sold at marinas alone in just-ended fiscal year
A new fiscal year began on Oct. 1, and that's the peri-
od in which the first 10 new officers will be put to work.

Cap's Place opens and closes on time.
"Two years ago, Clinton was in Boca Raton for a late
night speech and wanted to come over to eat," Hasis said.
"I told him I was a working gal ahd we were only open
until 10 p.m. and, if he arrived at 10:05, we'd be closed."
Clinton speech dragged on and he didn't get out of
Boca until midnight. Meanwhile, at closing time, the
restaurant's door was locked, Hasis said.
The walls of Cap's are covered with photos and news-
paper clippings publicizing famous visitors and the spot's
colorful history. The rambling, one-story wooden building
has been placed on the National Register of Historic
Places because of its link to Florida history.
"Not much has changed here in all these years," Hasis
Rustic charm is reflected in the uneven outdoor wood-
en sidewalks. Inside the restaurant are old wooden tables,
uneven floorboards and nautical gear hanging from the
walls and rafters.
Knight died in 1964 and the Hasis family eventually
assumed ownership, which continues today with Al's chil-
dren Tom, Ted and Talle as co-owners. The dining spot
is the oldest continuous one in Broward County.
"We have no plans to change a thing," said Hasis. "I
have another 25 or 30 years of work to go so I will be
around, as will my brothers."
A small motorboat manned by Capt. Daryl Miller,
who's been running the shuttle for 17 years, brings over
patrons daily from the mainland.

THE FIRST NAME IN MARINE ELECTRIC
IS REALLY A FIRST NAME
Over 53 years ago, a young electrician named Ward
Eshleman was determined to set new standards for
marine electric service.. Little did Ward know how big a
dream he would live to realize. Today Ward's Marine
Electric is the most respected name in the yachting
world. Our parts inventory is inexhaustible, and the
Ward's team of world-class ABYC certified electricians
continue to set new standards of technical proficiency.
However Ward II hasn't forgotten his father's ways, and
remains on a first name basis with our customers.
And the third generation is equally determined to
continue the family tradition of reliability. And of keep-
ing things down to earth... no matter how big our
operation and reputation becomes around the world.

Uncrowded waters, reliable fall winds make for good sailing
By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Legend has it that a stately cypress tree once grew
smack in the middle of Edenton's harbor long before the
first English colonists set foot in the Albemarle region of
Whenever a trade ship arrived at Edenton, it was code
of conduct for the captain to leave a bottle of the best
Jamaican rum in a hollow spot of the cypress' trunk.
When a ship pulled up anchor, the vessel's crew would
pay its respects to the Dram Tree by hoisting a drink to a
Ships whose crews skipped a drink of the Dram Tree
or, even worse, failed to place a bottle there when entering
port, were said to be doomed to disaster.
The tree is said to have survived until the spring of
1918, when a tremendous ice floe vanquished the land-
mark. Today, sailing out of Edenton Bay into the
Albemarle Sound the largest fresh water sound in
America one crosses over the site where that cypress
once sprouted. It's easy to note the unspoiled shoreline
while gliding up the Chowan River, or east towards
Uncrowded waters and reliable fall winds create some
of the best sailing in northeastern North Carolina.
The first European visitors to the Albemarle region
were probably members of Sir Walter Raleigh's expedi-
tion in the 1580s. Today, the Albemerle mainland towns
that line the rivers and estuaries are a microcosm of
American history. From the first exploration by English
colonists in 1584, to residents who protested British tyran-
ny in 1774 to invasion by the Union Army during the Civil
War, the Albemarle has played a pivotal role in just about
every major event in American history.
North Carolinians have long considered Edenton the
jewel in the crown of Albemarle. One of the prettiest
towns in the South, it flanks the beautiful open waterfront
of Edenton Bay.
About 5,200 people reside in the area that boasts
architectural treasures, scores of well-tended gardens and
some of the earliest settlements in North Carolina.
Edenton's three block long business district is lined with
shops and businesses and its waterfront has been given
over to parks and stunning vistas across Edenton Bay and
North Carolinians have
long considered Edenton
the jewel in the crown
the Albemarle Sound. It is not uncommon for residents of
the gracious old homes that line the shaded streets to
invite newcomers to come in for tea.
Visitors can explore the rich history and architectural
diversity of Edenton during a comprehensive 45-minute
trolley tour through the, historic district. The Cupola
House is just one of the many unique and beautifully pre-
served homes in Edenton. It was built in 1758 for Francis
Corbin, a land administrator for Lord Granville's land dis-
trict in North Carolina. In 1918 the Cupola House
Association was formed to protect this historical landmark.

Edenton achieves so well.
