New cruising permit

fee covers two trips

to the Bahamas
New fee structure hoped
to appease irate boaters
By BETH FEINSTELN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A new interim measure is making it cheaper for boaters
who travel frequently to and from the Bahamas.
The new cruising permit fee regulation that took effect
on Dec. 1 allows vessel owners to make two trips to the
islands within a 90-day period. Under the old structure, a
$150 fee for boats up to 35 feet and a $300 fee for vessels
over 35 feet was charged just for a single trip.
"Basically, the fee structure is cut in half" said Keith
Gomez, a boating and fishing specialist for the Bahamas
Tourist Office.
The interim solution approved by the Bahamian gov-
ernment was enacted to appease boaters, many of whom
were outraged over the hike in cruising permit fees last sum-
mer.
Prior to the July 4th weekend, the government had
imposed a fee of $100 for all boats, regardless of size.
Government officials had stated in a press release issued
at the time that the increase was necessary to "put into place
measures which would greatly reduce the likelihood of over-
fishing, poaching and pollution of Bahamian waters by
some boaters."
The press release also stated the "need for new fees has
arisen since September 11, 2001, when greater security for
all ports of entry was mandated, particularly due to our prox-
imity to Florida."
Boaters have complained that the fees were too expen-
sive and have said they would curtail their trips to the
Bahamas. Indeed, the country has since experienced a

seated in front of Petersen. The boats
are 16-foot, four-inch Hells Bay skiffs
With 25-hp outboards, easy to pole
and minimized to float in water that's
barely ankle deep. These fellows like a
proposed park plan to forbid use of
combustion engines on the flats, but
they'd prefer to mark the limits at a
foot-anid- a-half or two of depth, not a
perimeter 500 feet across. Please see
accompanying story on page 3.


Bahamian officials are still
encouraging boaters to help with
the decision-making process by
voicing their concerns via emails,
faxes and letters regarding
the permit fees.

decrease in boat traffic. The numbers were unavailable, but
the drop has been noticeable, Gomez said.
"The decision allowing for two trips in a 90-day period
is expected to help the boating community, which did not
like the fee structure," he said. "We want to encourage
boaters to keep making trips to the Bahamas."
To further appease boaters, the Bahamian government
is considering other proposals such as charging a multi-entry


permit fee good for up to five trips in a single year, as well
as looking into revising the entire fee structure, Gomez said.
But any changes in the fee structure would have to wait
until the 2004-2005 fiscal year, he said.
The government cannot change the fee structure
because it is already part of the 2003-2004 budget, which
ends June 30, 2004, Gomez said.
Bahamian officials are still encouraging boaters to help
with the decision-making process by voicing their concerns
via emails, faxes and letters regarding the permit fees.
'That's how we find out what's wrong so we can improve
upon it," he said.
Although the new fee structure has generated a lot of neg-
ative feedback, officials have been able to speak to the boat-
ing public and inform them of what is happening, he said.
"A lot of people are very supportive of the new interim
measure," Gomez said. "A lot of people are very receptive."

Public can offer input on proposed Biscayne park plans up to Feb. 6


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Plans to prohibit the use of combustion engines gaso-
line or diesel- over the ecologically fragile shallow grass
flats and shorelines of Biscayne National Park are getting a
lot of support from the guys who silently pole skiffs across
them, sight-seeking the protruding tail fins of the park's
famous bonefish.
That should please the outfits promoting a canoe-
kayak paddling trail around the inner perimeter of all of
Biscayne Bay.
Drafts of five preliminary alternative plans were sub-
mitted to public reaction at three hearings in December.
Next step is for the Biscayne staff and the National Park
Service to craft it down into one preliminary draft. The
redrafted plan will be submitted to another round of pub-
lic hearings.
Doing it without conflict doesn't look easy. The park
encompasses most of Biscayne Bay south of Key Biscayne,
about 30 miles from end to end. Side to side, it stretches
from the mainland to the last reef line, a few skips from
blue water. It's used by fish-catchers, cruisers, sailors,
water-skiers, tubers, snorkelers, scuba divers, bird-watch-
ers, paddlers, gregarious rafter-uppers and people who can't
stand crowds.
Of the five draft proposals, Alternative One advocates

making no changes in the almost-anything-goes current
management plan. It is virtually certain not to be enacted.
The other curtail of access for just about everyone.
"This is overkill, but there's no question we have to do
something because of the growing population of South
Florida and the continuing growth of the Homestead area,"
said Phil Gibboney, a retired Eastern Airlines pilot. "They
have to change something."
Gibboney moved from South Dade to Stuart five years
ago, but still drives two hours each way at least once a week
to launch his shallow-water skiff to the Arsenicker and
Rubicon Keys from Homestead Bayfront Park.
Well-enforced limits should protect his favorite flats
from gouging by the skegs and propellers of powerboats that.
draw too deep to be there in the first place, even at high tide.
Fishermen's approval of no-combustion zones isn't
complete: Most who attended the hearings argued that the
proposed zones are unnecessarily large.
At one public hearing, held in Miami and attended by
46 people, Park Superintendent Linda Canzanelli said none
of the no-combustion zones, other access controls or
mapped alternative plans on the table are etched in stone.
"If you basically like an alternative but you'd like to
change it by adding a zone, removing a zone or making
other changes, let us know," she said.
Almost everyone there did. They bent the ears of


Canzanelli, park archeologist Brenda Lanzendorf, fishery
biologist Todd Kellison and others who listened, explained
and wrote suggestions down.
One of the people the park staff met is Phil Gibboney's
bonefishing partner, Steve Petersen, who spent much of his
childhood on the park's keys and waters. He saw that most
of the no-combustion zones now proposed would stop
powerboats at the closest three-foot depth to a flat or shore-
line. That makes engine-restricted surface areas way too
wide, Petersen said: "I'm thinking more like a foot-and-a-
half to two feet."
He had the same idea about Arsenicker and West
Arsenicker Keys, which are identified as "sensitive
resources" and encircled with off-limits zones 500 feet wide
on every alternative plan.
Petersen and others made the point that there's water as
deep as five feet quite close to the eastern side of each of
those mangrove islands, so no need to ban engines-there.
Lanzendorf said the layouts for those and other zones can be
modified. "It doesn't have to be a pretty little band of circles
on a map."
Canzanelli emphasized that whatever the depth stan-
dard turns out to be, engine-boaters who find pockets or
unmarked channels that deep within no-combustion zones
will be allowed to use their engines at idle speed as long as
they have enough water beneath.
Any shallower, they'll have to tilt their engines up and
pole the rest of the way or use an electric trolling motor,
paddle, or get out and walk their boats off the flat.

Fishing for bass: the allure of the Big O is no fake


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
LAKEPORT We are drifting through a row of little
marshes near the northwest edge of Lake Okeechobee. The
bass are less active than we'd like. Our concentration is
slipping.
I'm re-rigging a rod at the stem of Joe Oglesby's bass
boat and he is on the foredeck, fiddling with his phone, try-
ing to call Miami.
Suddenly, excitement: Joe drops to his knees, dives face
down into the cockpit, pounds his fists on the deck and
moans "auuggh!"
Gaps in cellular service here are annoying, but not
enough to make my old friend weep and wail and gnash his
teeth, so I cry out: .
'Are you okay?"
He doesn't look okay. He looks like a fisherman who's
left his rod unattended with his bait in the water.
"Did you see that?" Joe asks. No, it happened behind me.
He spreads his hands, two or three feet apart. Pretty big
anyway, the kind of fish you hope to hook with 12 inches of
wiggly soft plastic, black with a blue tail. Joe's fake snake
had been on the bottom of the lake, face down, tail up, five
feet below the surface, while he was pushing phone buttons.
S"Six pounds!" Joe under-guesses. A two-footer would
go seven pounds, easy.
"It moved from right to left, and then it came up," he
says, his hands swimming laterally, then vertically. "All the
way out of the water."
Somewhere in the sequence he'd grabbed his rod, too
late. Bye-bye, fishypoo.
Bass don't travel much, so now we know exactly where
to start the next time we fish Lake Okeechobee.
Well, maybe not. We found out that some of the lake's
islands and standing-alone marshes are just floating masses
of plants that might take root or might sail away. Our little
string of marshes, near a wide cove called Monkey Box,
could be there next time but if the water level changes much
we might not recognize it.
Other than liking the name Monkey Box, we chose it
because Internet surfing and consultation with reliable
sources revealed that bass had been biting there consistently
for most of November, and also because an old friend who
lives at Lakeport insisted that we inhabit her guest room.
There's a local motel, the Lakeport Lodge, and for all we

and it only takes one guy to run the boat.
know it's terrific, but not this time.
Another good thing: Monkey Box isn't hard to find. If
you launch from the public ramp at Hamey Pond Canal,
alongside Route 78, you turn east-northeast at the channel's
end and run about two miles along a line of spoil islands.
When you pass the last one, turn south.

The Big O: How good it is
If you haven't fished Big 0, you've been missing some-
thing awfully good. Joe and I had been talking about going
since he bought his boat in July. We finally matched sched-
ules for the weekend before Thanksgiving.
Going up there from down here was easier and faster
than it looked on a road map less than two hours from
north Miami-Dade via 1-95,595 and US 27 on a Friday night.
If we were stopping in South Bay or Clewiston, it would have
taken no more than an hour and a half easy enough to drive
up, fish a few hours and return home the same day.
Freshwater fishing-doers don't all agree which Florida
bass water is number one, but Big O ranks high on any list.
About 500 fishing tournaments, ranging from club comnpeti-

ered boats?
No, the surface is 730 square miles with a water capac-
ity of about a trillion gallons. If you can't find solitude on
that, you can't find it anywhere.
Our trip coincided with a 10-day duck hunting season,
which made the weekend busier than usual, but not scarier.
We never had to duck, though once in a while we heard a dis-
tant shotgun go boom. Other boats were often, but not
always, in sight.
Another reason to like it here is that Lakeport is one of
the quietest locations on Big O, except in hunting season
when people start revving their airboat engines at 4 a.m.
Want hustle-bustle? Try Clewiston, the lake's capital city
for people coming from the south. The town of Okeechobee
serves that purpose on the north edge. South Bay, Pahokee,
Belle Glade, Moore Haven and Buckhead Ridge are other
country burgs where you can find lodging, bait and tackle
stores, guides, eating places and launch ramps.
If you enjoy meeting police officers, try the outskirts of
South Bay, where the speed limit plunges from 70 to 45 faster
than some drivers can decelerate.
Unless you know your way around the lake, invest in a
fishing map. We bought a Kingfisher map of the lake for $8
at Bass Pro Shops. It doesn't mark every fishing spot I heard
and read about, but it shows a lot of them, including channels
through marshes and grassflats. It also has a list of 39 access
points, 27 of them with launch ramps.
I added a NOAA navigation chart number 11428 -
of the Okeechobee Waterway, which includes the lake. When
you compare it with the fishing map, you'll see why it's best
to have both.
Because the water level changes often, charted depths
are more theoretical than real. You ought to have a fishfind-
er/depthfinder, preferably one with GPS and mapping fea-
tures in case you forget to. line up your landmarks or weath-
er hides them.

pre Sept. 11 and the dumping did indeed
stop. After a few months it restarted and
has continued ever since, When I con-
tacted the Coast Guard once again -
with documenting photos they said I
had an "alleged" problem. Thus, I'm no
longer seeking their help.
Recently I recovered 17 truck seals
in just one day. They're not biodegrad-
able and could easily be swallowed by
marine life. The seals could also conceiv-
ably be reused to camouflage other con-
tainers with more dangerous cargo.
Dumping of any plastic is illegal.

To the Editor:
I live on the north shore of Port
Everglades and have been troubled for
the past few years by the presence of
ongoing illegal and easily avoidable
pollution. Truck seals off container
ships coming into Port Everglades are
being carelessly and illegally thrown
overboard into the port. I have collected
approximately 300 along a very small
beach that indicates to me that the
entire undetected pollution output-is
tremendous.
Each seal has embossed company
information including a serial ID. I had
notified the Coast Guard of this problem

"The Coast Guard bought six of the devices and has ordered six more for use at its

To the Editor:
In answer to Jim Pickens question in
the December issue regarding red and
green sidelights on waterborne vessels:
My life on the water started about
1937. I would stand on a.couple of wood-
en soda boxes so I could see over the big
wooden steering wheel on my father's
steam powered excursion boat. I was 7
years old.
The red and green lights are placed
on a vessel according to the rules for the
size boat. One rule is common to all situ-
ations: the lenses are shaded so the light
cannot be seen beyond seven degrees aft


of the bow.
Red is on the port side so if this color
light is spotted from an approaching ves-
sel, it must give way, just as a car coming
from your right has the right of way.
If a vessel sees a green light, which
is on the starboard of an approaching
vessel, the pilot knows he has the right of
way. In all situations, it is prudent to
make sure both operators understand the
other's intentions.
Seaplanes must also show the same
lights when on the water at night.

Statute designed to eliminate

paperwork could cause more


Also, since U.S. documented vessels are not preclud-
ed from the new law, it is interesting that the state statute
fails to require a search of Coast Guard records, which
might actually expose at least some (but not necessarily
all) of those maritime liens..
Unfortunately, this means that someone who purchas-
es a vessel may discover that expensive liens exist against
that vessel- liens which can still be enforced via federal
arrest.
It should also be noted that one of the reasons a fed-
eral arrest and sale of a vessel without necessarily
knowing the underlying vessel owner has been consid-
ered allowable and constitutional was because it was done
under the auspices of the court, with a judge reviewing the
circumstances so as to prevent abuse of the system.
Under the new state statute, a marina is only required
to inform someone they "reasonably believe" to be the
owner or acting for the vessel before its sale. There is no
review of the process by a court or judge.
Under the right circumstances, it is very possible that
a "non-informed" vessel owner with sufficient resources,
and a sufficient.lose due to the sale of the vessel, may test
this statute by seeking legal redress against the marina that
sold it.
Moreover, it might even be possible for the owner to
attempt the return of a vessel under federal maritime rules.
This, of course, would not please the present purchaser,
who might then also seek legal redress against the marina.
In fact, the buyer may also have redress against the
marina if the boat is ever arrested due to a pre-purchase
maritime lien, depending on the circumstances of the sale.
In the end, it is possible this statute may cause those
who use it to spend more time in court rather than less.
Time will tell.
Coincidentally, I recently saw a New Year's Day card
that showed Father.Time walking off a cliff. The caption

City's marine hub sprung up around Seminole River


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in a series of special features exploring
landmarks along South Florida's waterways. This mon-
th's feature takes a look at the Seminole River in Fort
Lauderdale.
The flowing waterway outside Lauderdale Marina
owner Bob Cox's office is also a historic "river."
"It's really a river to nowhere," joked Cox.
What Cox sees is the Seminole River, sandwiched
between Southeast 15th and 16th streets, running from the
Intracoastal east to Cordova Road in Fort Lauderdale.
"Back in those early years when this. part of Fort
Lauderdale was being developed, they gave names to some
of the canals and area roadways," he said.
Marilyn Rathburn, research librarian for the Fort
Lauderdale Historical Society, confirmed the name of the
waterway.
"Back in the 1920s when there was the start of a build-
ing boom in that area, there were plans to build a bridge
from the mainland at 15th Street across the Stranahan River
(now the Intracoastal) to connect to what is today Harbor
Beach," Rathbum said.
At the time, only the Las Olas bridge stretched over the
waterway and the oceanfront road only went as far south as
Bahia Mar.
Early. architectural drawings show the 15th Street
bridge in place, Several small bridges linking the manmade
islands of Harbor Beach were constructed in the hopes of
drawing future residential development. The two bridge
bases for the 15th Street bridge, one at the western end of
Northeast 15th and the other at Harbor Beach, were built
along with a central drawbridge in what is today the
Intracoastal.
The drawbridge remained opei and never connected to
anything because, like the Seminole River which deadened
at what is today Cordova Road, the 1930s Depression
Stopped all development. It wasn't until after World War II
' that the area began to build up and eventually the 17th Street
Cause% a) ~ as built in the 1950s. At the same time, the old
drawbridge in the middle of the Intracostal was demolished.
Today the canal is a boating hub, lined with a variety of

of Fort Lauderdale, keeps historic photos in his office,

Seminole River Canal.
marine-related businesses, the city boat ramps and apart-
ment and condo complexes.
Cable Marine, at 1517 SE 16th St., has been located on
the canal since it opened in 1977. Owner George Cable said
that when the business started there were only a handful of
marinas and marine maintenance businesses in the area.
"Like so many aspects of the marine industry, this canal
has changed over the years and now the megayachts are
being serviced," he said, adding that the canal is probably 28
feet deep and one of the deepest in the area.
Cox, 86, a former Fort Lauderdale mayor who retired in
the 1980s, has photos in his office showing the bridge sec-
tions. Cox had moved to Fort Lauderdale in 1946 from
upstate New York, where he was chief engineer at a defense
plant.
Living on a boat with his first wife, the couple brought
their 83-foot craft to South Florida only to discover there
was no place on the New River to dock because the boat
needed a deep port. So they docked in Miami until they

could relocate to Fort Lauderdale.
Cox did discover that the U.S. Navy had abandoned a
secret torpedo-testing base at the end of Southeast 15th Street
and there was a deep port along the Seminole River Canal.
"It took me a year and a half, but I eventually was able
to secure a lease from Gulf Oil, which had owned the land
and was leasing it to the Navy," he said.
He knocked down 14 buildings to clear space to build
Lauderdale Marina which he says contains the first marine
gas station in the area.
"I was able to look east toward the ocean and there was-
n't a single home, condo or high-rise of any kind in sight,"
he said.
To the north, there were only a few lots being devel-
oped on the Tenth Street island. To the south was the Ocean
World Seaquarium at the end of Southeast 16th Street where
performing porpoises entertained tourists.
Cox's marina, which eventually expanded to include
boat service and one of the areas oldest seafood restaurant's,
the 15th Street Fisheries, now encompasses about five acres.
The land was purchased from Gulf Oil.
"The first radio station, WFTL, had its tower on some
of the nearby land and its office on a boat docked on the
canal," Cox recalled.
When the area along Southeast 16th Street was sold in
the 1950s, Cox said the runoff from the development into
the Seminole River Canal ended up forcing Cox to take legal
action to get the canal dredged.
In 2004 Lauderdale Marina will celebrate its 56th year.
"I could have never imagined all the changes that have
taken place in just this area," said Cox, noting how now
megayachts line the Seminole River Canal while residential
and commercial development have taken over the islands
along the Intracoastal.
"You simply wouldn't believe all this has happened
unless you lived through it all," said Cox. "But I love Fort
Lauderdale and despite all the development, it's still a great
place to live."

Sailing group learns to navigate the singles scene


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Louise Lambiotte, Andy Deering and Ginny Lloyd may
have joined the Sailing Singles of South Florida for entirely
different reasons, but all agree taking that step has changed
their lives.
"I have only been on a sailboat twice in my life, but I
knew I wanted to know more about it," said Lambiotte, who
joined the group shortly after it started 15 years ago. Her 20-
year marriage had ended and she needed a new social outlet
to not only meet people, but also learn a new skill sailing.
Today, the retired local schoolteacher spends more and
more time crewing for big sailboats that take her to all parts
of the Caribbean.
"I was just separated from my wife and knew that it
was time to put myself back out there if I wanted to ever
find a possible new relationship," said Deering of his move
to join the group when it first started. He has twice served
as commodore.
Seven years ago Deering, a Fort Lauderdale resident,
met another sailing single, Jean Crocker, and the duo's been
a "steady" couple for the last five years.
When Lloyd moved here from California three years
ago, she knew she needed to "get out there and meet peo-
ple." She noticed a Sailing Singles poster, which led her to a
meeting. "I think the group found me," she said.
Today, Lloyd has a whole new circle of friends and is
club commodore one of the few women to hold the post.
These three stories are duplicated many times by the
other 190 group members, who have found new friends,
romantic partners and new sailing experiences.
"People join for three reasons," Lloyd said. "They want
to meet people, look for a potential relationship or explore
their love of sailing," she said. "And for some, all three are
reasons."
The group was formed 15 years ago by a handful of peo-
ple with a need to socialize with others who loved sailing.
"If you're single, your always looking and hoping, said
Jerry Holland, a seven-year member who has a boat and
hosts some outings.

Lambiotte, one of the longest-serving members, said
the group has had as many as 250 active members. "Some
never have been on a sailboat and it's a chance to discover
that whole part of what living in South Florida is all about."
The oldest member is 72, with the average age in the
50s. Men and women almost evenly split the membership,
with only about 30 members actually having sailboats.
"While we do go out sailing or take special day cruises,
we have lots of other social activities," Lloyd said.
"We have a safe, friendly environment for men or
women to come and meet other people," said Greg Rewa, an
11-year member from Fort Lauderdale.
For Deering and Crocker it's been a romantic adventure.
"We may be a couple now, but we're still active and these
people are all very special to us," said Crocker. She noted that
a dozen marriages have resulted from Sailing Singles.
Once a couple- weds, they become associate members

with no voting rights. But they can still be involved in all
social aspects.
"The club is a great support group," said Joe Murray of
North Bay Village, who lost his boat in Hurricane Andrew
in 1992. Shortly after he bought a new one, the club threw a
surprise birthday party with a $500 gift certificate for
Murray to help rig up his new craft. "That showed me what
these people are all about," he added.
Iwona Schmidt of Aventura, attending her first meeting
recently, said she's new to South Florida and "hopes to make
new friends."
She also believes there could be a chance to meet Mr.
Right.
"Why not?" she asked. "The only way you'll find out is
to get out and be social."

The club meets every Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at

Fishfinder comes in handy on Lake Okeechobee


We found Okeechobee's popularity to our advantage.
The Internet is infested with reports, both amateur and pro-
fessional, about what's biting and where. Some of them (see
box) are organized, up-to-date and apparently even truthful.

The allure
Here's a sample from Capt. Terry Garrels, a longtime
Okeechobee guide I trust:
"Early a.m. topwater action has been good. Zara Spooks,
buzz baits, Zoom flukes and prop baits are good choices.
During the spawn, fishing a trick worm with a weedless 1/64-
ounce weighted hook is very effective. On artificial bait the
bigger bass are being caught flipping heavy matted areas,
using a one-ounce Gambler screw-in weight with a Charlie's
black and blue crawdad. Other good artificial baits have been
spinner baits, Bill Lewis Rat L Traps and Smithwick jerk
baits. (Rattlin' Rogue)."
Before loading up on every lure mentioned by every
source, I checked my supplies to see what I already had: a
few Zaras, but I never catch anything with them. A box of
spinner baits, same thing. Lots of Zoom flukes, very effec-
tive in the Everglades, but I packed just a few because I'd
seen a credible report that said they attract mostly smaller
bass up here.
I don't need to be coaxed to fish Rat L Traps, so some
of those went into the bag.
I'm not convinced that brand differences between closely
similar lures are important to bass. I'm pretty sure colors are.

Tournament pro Bob Miley of Homestead told me
Charlie's soft plastic crawdads had been working very well
in black and blue. Most reports I found on the web mentioned
that color combination at least once, with a variety of soft
plastic lures.
I've never had much luck with crawdad imitations, so I
bought those 12-inch snakes in black and blue a package
of Bass Pro's house brand and another of Gambler worms.
Okeechobee bass liked both.
Try not to get carried away to the cash register by pub-
lished reports of well-known guides and tournament profes-
sionals. They're usually sponsored by tackle companies that
give them equipment for promotional considerations.
Naturally they use their sponsors' lures a lot, perfecting tech-
niques for each and therefore catching a lot of fish on those.
Pros usually avoid mentioning brand names of lures
they like if the manufacturers aren't among their sponsors,
so don't be misled if nobody plugs your favorite plugs. If
you're good with them, they'll catch fish for you. For
example, none of the reports I saw even mentioned Rapala
floating minnows, but you'll seldom meet a pro who does-
n't use them.

Proposed park plans draw boaters to p c JANUARY 2004


Proposed park plans draw boaters to public hearings


A week before the hearings, this reporter joined
Gibboney, Petersen and Dave Stone on a bonefishing trip.
Among the Arsenickers, our first stop, we saw plenty of
bottom gouges through the clear, still water near low tide.
A few were in pairs, made by twin-engine boats just
about impossible to run there at any tidal stage without hit-
ting bottom.
Nearly all the trenches were long, indicating that
boaters who found themselves in too-shallow water chose to
hit the throttles and try to plane across, rather than back off
to deeper water. "They haven't a clue," Gibboney said, cred-
iting the gougers credit with ignorance, not malice.
Park rangers have caught plenty of people ripping up
the flats on purpose, said Lanzendorf, the archeologist, but
she knows plenty of others do it by mistake. "I've run a Park
Service boat aground on Featherbed myself."
Featherbed is the most vulnerable spot in the park for
accidental groundings. It's right in mid-bay, with the
Intracoastal Waterway channel cutting through it. Mistakes
are made often by boaters looking for shortcuts to Sands and
Boca Chita keys, or aiming at the wrong angle for distant
channel markers.


Lanzendorf said the eastern section is too badly dam-
aged for passive recovery; fill will have to be hauled in and
seagrass transplanted to restore it. All the draft alternatives
designate it as a no-combustion zone.
Fishing access was only one of many topics discussed
and argued at the public hearings. Here's a sampling of sug-
gestions posted on easels around the room:

All boaters should be required to take a captain's
course for safety purposes and to follow park regulations.
Put more visitor contact stations in the north end.
Get rid of commercial shrimping in the bay.
Don't place the "safety valve" shoals between
Stiltsville and Soldier Key off limits, but prevent damaging
groundings by marking the navigable channels there.
Open channels in Midnight Pass and the Rubicon
Keys, and from Hurricane Creek into Jones Lagoon.
Don't make a no-combustion zone between the
Homestead Bayfront Park and Convoy Point channels.
Instead of no-combustion zones, improve the mark-
ings of channels and other access routes.
Build camping chickees on platforms in the bay to
reduce the impact of camping on Elliott and Adams Keys,
and refurbish the existing campsites.


Oceamii Tradlers offers a new take on an old tradition!
Centuries ago, a shipwright who found himself blessed with a new baby might craft a traditional gift for the new arrival: a hand-
made cradle in the shape of a little boat. He would pour all his skill and craftsmanship into this piece, and the result would be
passed on in the family as an heirloom. Many cradle boats eventually found there way into museums.
Our Salt Cay Design group has created a small number of dory-style cradle boats for your baby (or grandbaby). Come and see
them at our Lighthouse Point store, or take a look at our website for a preview.

Fort Jefferson's mystique draws boaters to the Dry Tortugas


By JOHN R. FLETEMEYER
Special to the Waterfront News
Even among Floridians, it's a little known fact that
one of America's largest and most historically important
national parks is located 70 miles off Key West.
Created by an act of Congress in 1992, the Dry
Tortugas National Park's remote location in the Gulf of
Mexico gives it the distinction of being the most southern
bit of American real estate.
The Dry Tortugas got their name from Spanish
explorer Ponce de Leon, who in 1513 discovered an abun-
dance of marine turtles but no fresh water on any of the
seven tiny islands.
Fort Jefferson is the most prominent manmade fea-
ture in the Tortugas. Construction began in 1846 in
response to the need for a strategic military presence in
the Gulf of Mexico and the Straits of Florida. Impressive
20-foot thick walls and a protective moat span nearly 21
acres of land. Imagine building one of America's largest
forts with the aid of only a few primitive tools. Workers
and materials traveled over 70 miles from Key West in
diminutive sailing ships. Negotiating the shallow channel
leading into the island without the aid of power would
have been quite challenging.
Work continued for nearly 29 years. At its peak there
were over 2,000 workers, but the project ceased when it
was decided that the fort could no longer serve its strate-
gic objective. But Fort Jefferson continued to have a mil-
itary presence. In 1898 the USS Maine anchored there
before continuing on to Cuba. During both world wars the
fort was used to harbor Navy ships.
Now, starting Feb. 1, overnight camping will be per-
mitted due to updated plumbing facilities.

A get-away
Typically a Tortugas trip begins in Key West at the
marina of your choice where you'll fuel up and provision
your boat because there's no place to stop along the way.
By all means, don't forget nautical charts of the area,
which can be purchased in Key West at the park's visitor
center near Duval Street. Information is also available at


the Key West Coast Guard Station, the city's Chamber of
Commerce and the local Florida Keys Charter Boat
Association.
Heading out of Key West's harbor was a magical
experience for me. I love local Key West lore- about
pirates, sponge diving and the drunken alley brawls made
famous by Ernest Hemmingway. I could almost picture
Papa Hemmingway pulling into the harbor with a giant
marlin precariously strapped to the gunnels of his boat.
Shortly after leaving the harbor, a number of emerald-
colored keys began to appear to our starboard. These are

the Marquesas Keys, known among locals for their excel-
lent bonefish and permit fishing.
Thirty miles offshore we encountered The Dauntless,
one of the late Mel Fisher's treasure hunting boats.
Although most of the gold, silver and emeralds were
recovered years ago from the famed Atocha, enough trea-
sure is still being found to justify continued underwater
exploration of the area.
Still further out, the water suddenly changes color
from light turquoise to deep, vibrant blue. We have just
reached Rebecca Channel, an area notorious for its rough
and unpredictable water. This is why it's important to
check the weather before planning a trip to the Dry

Visiting 'paradise'

outside Key West


Tortugas.
Our captain told me that it's not uncommon for the
seas to kick up from a foot to over 10 in less than an hour.
Boaters often become stranded on the Tortugas for as long
as a week waiting for the seas to subside enough to allow
for a safe return to Key West.
About two hours into our trip, I spot two black dots on
the horizon. They can only be the two lighthouses, one at
Fort Jefferson and one on the neighboring island.
The fort
Ten minutes later and I'm able to make out the outline
of the fort and some of its interesting architectural ele-
ments. When we're about a half mile from the fort, we
start looking for channel markers located about 200 yards
from shore on the northwest side. The channel is 12 feet
deep at low tide so there is plenty of depth for large motor-
boats and sailboats.
Once through the channel, we head to the dock where
we're greeted by three rangers with welcoming smiles.
Before exploring, check-in is mandatory and if you have
45 minutes to spare, I highly recommend the guided tour.
My tour was led by interpretive ranger Mike Ryan. His
exuberance for this remarkable place was infectious.
As he described the many hardships of soldiers sta-
tioned at the fort 150 years ago, I could visualize the men
in their hot woolen uniforms stationed in the lookouts next
to their cannons, straining their sunburned eyes for signs
of an enemy ship. In Fort Jefferson's long history, there
was never a shot fired at an enemy.
After the tour it was time to go snorkeling. The water
was exceptionally clear. An assemblage of marine life
rivaling the Miami Seaquariam greeted me: curious
groupers that were as friendly as puppy dogs, and many
other fish of various shapes, sizes and colors. I even spot-
ted a rare and beautiful hawksbill sea turtle. I expected
him to bolt when I swam next to him but instead he came
up to my faceplate to give me a closer look.
By now I'm exhausted,, so I decided to eat lunch and
take a nap. Thanks to the effort to accommodate visitors,
the park has a perfect place to do both. There is an immac-
ulately clean picnic area with lots of grassy areas perfect
for lounging. When I laid down on my blanket and felt the
cool breeze against my cheek, I knew I was in a paradise
that ironically few people know is here.
