Marine education to get $1 million


Rosenstiel School to receive
monthly donations from AIMS
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Education and research programs at the University of
Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric
Science recently received a boost of $1 million from the
American Institute of Marine Studies.
The 30-year-old non-profit organization, known as
AIMS, announced its pledge in December. The Rosenstiel
School will receive monthly payments totaling $100,000 a
year for 10 years, said Fred Kraft, president of AIMS.
And the school stands to gain even more funds before
the timetable is up. "We'll probably give them $1.25 mil-
lion," he said.
The monies benefiting the university come from the
sale of boats, collectible cars, artwork and real estate that is
donated to.AIMS.
All vessels and automobiles are in "tiptop condition."
Donors receive a tax deduction, Kraft said.
Since its founding, AIMS has sold more than 12,000
gently-used boats, ranging from 25 to 108 feet. At the AIMS
dock in Lauderdale by the Sea, Kraft said there are present-
ly some 15 yachts ready for inspection and purchase.
Cars and artwork are displayed at a warehouse in Fort
Lauderdale.
The organization also has showrooms and docks for
boats and cars in Seattle, WA, San Diego, CA, New York
State and St. Claire Shores, MI, Kraft said.
A complete inventory can be found on the group's web-
site at www.aimsamerica.org.
This isn't the first time that AIMS has pledged money
to UM's Rosenstiel School, Kraft said.
"We've been working with them for the past six years,"


he said. "We have a good relationship with the university.
Everything we seem to do together works out beautifully.
They impress us as very, very dedicated people. They have
a class of students who do such a good job. Any help they
'get, they deserve."
The monies benefiting the university
come from the sale of boats,
collectible cars, artwork and real
estate that is donated to AIMS.

In addition to the $1 million pledge, AIMS recently
leaked a 40-foor lobster boat for $1 tayear to the Rocrliesicl
School. The vessel will be used for reef research, Kraft said.
The Rosenstiel School isn't the only beneficiary of
AIMS. The organization provides funding and other forms
of assistance to several marine conservation programs and
children's groups.
Recipients have included Kids in Distress, the Starting
Place, the Center for Sustainable Fisheries and the Broward
County Schools Marine Magnet programs, according to a
press released issued by AIMS.
Among the programs sponsored by AIMS are scholar-
ships to the Rosenstiel School and funding a trip for 10 stu-
dents this summer to Seal Island in False Bay, South Africa,
where they will study great white sharks.
"We've been donating to the community at large, as
well as the marine industry for 30 years and it continues to
be a pleasure every time," Kraft said.
"Our donors really are the crux of our business," he
said. 'Through their donations and the sales of these dona-
tions, we are able to give straight out cash to those in need,
even in a tough economy."

Hollywood seeks to dredge manmade North Lake


City requires $150,000 study
before committing to project
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Claiming that the city's North Lake is difficult to nav-
igate, Hollywood officials are seeking funds to conduct a
study to determine the cost of dredging the manmade
body of water.
Last year the city sought monies from the county and
state but were declined.
"The county and state would instead prefer to partic-
ipate in the actual dredging project, rather then the study,"
said Robert Rawls, Hollywood's director of building and
engineering.
The City Commission is continuing to look at other
options to fund the study, which is estimated to cost
around $150,000, said Renee Richards, a city grants
writer and former city dock master.
"The study will be a costly endeavor," she said. "But.
it needs to be done before doing any dredging."
City officials contend the work is necessary. The key
hole-shaped North Lake is the city's most used lake for
boating, Richards said.
"The last time North Lake was dredged was in the
1970s and that was minimal," Richards said. "It's a very

shallow lake and navigating through it can be a tricky
endeavor."
North Lake has about 30 residential properties, as
well as the city's marina, a boat ramp with four ramps,
Holland Park and Sailor's Point Park.
"We get a lot of use from the public boat ramp, from
residents and visitors alike," Richards said. "People use it
to launch their vessels to have access to the Intracoastal
and the ocean."
But the lake only provides a three-foot draft in the
majority of its center section, she said.
"There is a deep channel dredged from the marina to
the boat ramps," Richards said. "But if you don't have
local knowledge of where the deep waters are, you can run
aground quickly."
City officials want to study the eastern portion of the
lake including its mouth. The area comprises the marina,
boat ramp, two parks and less than a half dozen homes,
Richards said.
"We feel that North Lake serves a large user base and
it is a public facility and would be appropriate for agen-
cies that support public marine interests to participate in
this project," Rawls said. "Presently, it is difficult to nego-
tiate through the shoaling within the lake."
The city is pursuing all available federal and state
funding resources. "But before we apply, these agencies


require we provide them with an estimate of the project's
cost," he said. "In order to have a meaningful discussion,
we must have a viable cost estimate of how much the pro-
ject will cost."
Having the study will help identify a number of vari-
ables that will affect the cost of the dredging, Rawls said.

City officials contend the work is
necessary. The key hole-shaped
North Lake Is the city's most used
lake for boating.
"One of the big variables is to map the lake area and
determine the bottom profile between the sediment and
hard rock layers," he said. "Another variable is to analyze
the silt layers and determine the disposal methodology
and whether the dredging will affect any natural habitats."
Broward County officials would consider funding the
dredging, but the city needs to first prove the feasibility of
the project, said John Fiore, associate planner with the
county's parks and recreation division and a liaison to the
Broward County Marine Advisory Committee.
"Up to this point, we have never funded a study to
determine whether a project is viable," he said.
David Roach, executive director of the Florida Inland
Navigation District, said if the dredging improves naviga-
tion and removes sediment that will move into the

Tips ahoy! Expertise fished straight from the pros


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
No doubt you're planning to go to the big boat show in
Miami Beach, and this time you're going to attend some of
those fishing seminars given by guides and charter captains.
You always mean to do that, but instead you kill the day
drooling over boats you couldn't afford without learning a
new profession, such as armed robbery.
Better to learn more about fishing, if that's what you
really want to get out of the boat show, the fly club meeting,
the magazine and retail store promotions.
Once at Bass Pro Outdoor World, I asked Mark Nichols,
a fishing pro who represents DOA lures, what he does to
keep pinfish from nibbling live shrimp to bits when fishing
for seatrout over grass flats. You know how it is: Pinfish are
quicker than trout, so before your shrimp attracts a trout it's
a mere shell of its former self.
"Use artificial shrimp," said Nichols, whose sponsor is
the best-known maker of artificial shrimp. I think he saw my
sneer coming, but he admitted knowing no more than I about
avoiding pinfish attacks. Artificial shrimp, eh?
"The pinfish will still try to nibble the bait," Nichols said,
"but it will last 'til the trout get there."
I don't go to those seminars so you won't have to, but
you can look at it that way. Here are some little-known tips
I've learned at them. A little-known tip is one I didn't know
until I heard it from one of these guys.
There's a lot here from Bouncer Smith, who probably
knows more about saltwater fishing in Florida than anyone
else, and that includes most of the fish.
Bouncer Smith on how to tell the difference between a
big Spanish mackerel and a small king: A mackerel's dorsal
fin is always black. A gray dorsal identifies a kingfish. Yes,
we know a kingfish is a mackerel too.
Mark Giacobba, manager of the fly shop at Bass Pro, on
fishing cold water in the Flamingo backcountry: "The fish
were either there or somewhere else, so no use spinning your
wheels if you're not into fish within a few minutes. The fish
are balled up close together with. this colder water. That
means there is a lot of fishless water during these cold peri-
ods. The flip side is that when you do come into some fish it
can be fantastic."

Fishing


The Author: When you're casting flies and your fly
lands with a sharp hook, that's not just double entendre. A
sudden break to the left at the business end of a straight cast
means there's a wind knot in your leader a simple over-
hand knot caused by bad casting technique, not the wind,
even though everyone calls it a wind knot. Lefty Kreh says it
ought to be called a casting knot. He's too kind. I call it a
slob's knot. Untie it at once, or your next cast will tighten it.
Chico Fernandez on saltwater flyfishing: "A redfish tails
because he's trying to pin something to the bottom. A deer
hair muddler is one of my favorite flies with a red and yel-
low dyed head and natural deer hair behind that. ...In man-
groves, the snook are small. The big ones are cruising."
When flyfishing for them, use sinking lines and big flies.
If you see snook on the surface, a pencil popper is a good
first-choice fly.
Bouncer Smith: At the Miami harbor entrance, when the
tide's coming in the best fishing is outside the jenies. When
the tide's going out, fish inside thejemes If you v\ ant to catch
sharks, first catch a barracuda. Tie it to a rope, like a stringer,
and leave it overboard. If sharks are around, they'll find you.
To make a shark fly, buy a roll of bright red surveyor's tape
at the hardware store. Cut a couple of feet of tape, wrap it
several times around one hand and tie the handful of loops to
a hook with a nail knot. To make the fly sink, cut the loops.
Says Bouncer, "It really works, and it's inexpensive."
Bouncer again: Jacks, tarpon and snook all ambush bait
fish at canal mouths in Biscayne Bay. If you can find out
when the flood control spillway's to be opened or be there
when heavy rain's expected or right after it's over that's
the best time.
Kevin Merritt, who represents Hookup Lures: When
fishing with a jig, 90 percent of the strikes will come while
the lure is falling and you're least likely to realize it.
"I glue my eyes to where the line and the water meet,"
says Merritt. If anything appears to change, or even feels a lit-
tle odd, don't wonder why. Just set the hook. In shallow
water, don't start retrieving the instant the lure hits the water
to avoid hitting bottom. If a bottom feeder such as a redfish

sees the lure, you're pulling it away from him.
Merritt and Alan Zaremba: to prevent those annoying
loops that mess up your cast with spinning tackle; pretend the
reel bail does not close automatically when you turn the
crank. On automatic, the reel creates a little extra slack at the
spool, and that's how the loop forms. To prevent it, close the
bail manually with your free hand.
Zaremba: Using braided lines, there's no need for a
monofilament or fluorocarbon leader. Just tie the lure directly
to the line, whose extra-thin diameter and neutral coloring
make it virtually invisible. Caution: Zaremba guides in fresh
water for butterfly peacock, a predatory fish so aggressive that
it might not care if you use a half-inch dockline for a leader.
I've fished with him several times but I still use a leader, even
though he out-catches me by at least six fish to one.
A ripoff victim: If you're going to stop for anything on
the way to the launch ramp food, ice, bait, whatever -
leave nothing on the boat except in a locked compartment,
unless you or your partner stays with the boat while the other
goes into the store. It takes only a few seconds for a thief to
drive alongside your parked rig, grab a handful of rods and
reels and scoot away. Even out in the country, don't let your
Miami guard down.
Billy Bob Crosno, Bass Pro Shops: To catch snook in
Everglades canals, first catch some bluegills and sunfish for
bait. Crosno gets them with a fly rod and a tiny popping bug.
He hooks the bait through the back, just behind the dorsal fin,
and fishes it right down the middle of the canal.
Mark Nichols, DOA lures: If you're a good bass fisher-
man you're probably a good snook fisherman too, because
you're used to working a lure slowly around underwater
structure. "I like fishing the last half of the outgoing tide. I'm
always going on the theory that snook are looking into the
tide (from downcurrent toward up current). A snook eats bait
that's coming to him because he's lazy, and the bigger the
fish, the lazier they are."

The good, the bad and the ugly of Biscayne National Park plans


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
Fishers and recreational boaters are almost out of time
to tell the National Park Service what we like and dislike
about the alternative proposals for Biscayne National
Park's new general management plan. When it's finished,
probably in 2006, it will guide the way the park is run for
the next 15 to 20 years.
The public input deadline is Friday, Feb. 6, so let's
take a last opinionated look at the possibilities.
One alternative is to change nothing. Forget that.
Unless some controls are established to protect the park's
most sensitive areas, Southeast Florida's run-amok devel-
opment and boating growth seem sure to spoil Biscayne
and everyone's enjoyment of the place.
Four other proposals designate shallows where the
use of combustion engines would be forbidden either
to prevent boat groundings from damaging seagrass flats
and the premature sea creatures inhabiting them, or to pro-
vide quiet zones for canoe and kayak paddlers. That's why
the mainland shoreline is designated a no-combustion
zone on every proposal.,
No-combustion zones would let you run under power
to their edges, but to go over them you'd have to pole your
boat, drift or use an electric trolling motor.
Good idea, but the zones as drawn on proposal maps
are made by distance from shorelines and they're unnec-
essarily wide. They ought to be based, on water depth
instead say two feet.
Most of the flats are too shallow for even an up-tilted,
short-shafted outboard, even at high tide. At half low tide,
a boat that draws a foot of water is likely to bump bottom
with its engine out of the water
Every flat bears scars from the skegs and props of
powerboats and from sailboat groundings. The worst
example is the eastern portion of the Featherbeds, very
shallow banks bisected by the Intracoastal Waterway
channel and gouged hideously by power boats over many
a generation.
"I've run a Park Service boat aground there myself,"
Brenda Lanzendorf confessed to me. She's the park's staff
naturalist. Some day, she's likely to have that accident
again. So am I. You too, but we three careful, watchful
boaters all aren't why the east side of Featherbed is so
awful.


Uishig


Whose fault is it? People who can't read nautical
charts, won't learn or don't care. People who know what
they're doing but don't pay attention to depth. People try-
ing but failing to follow the Featherbeds' edges to Boca
Chita, the popular picnic key with the little lighthouse. At
worst, it's the fault of fools who try to plane across the
bank where there's barely enough water to float a duck.
Equally, it's the fault of every government agency
that's failed for so long to face the problem with action. It
shouldn't be difficult to post enough markers around the
Featherbeds to-warn boaters off. That would protect the
bank from people who run aground while trying not to, and
make it easier to prove the guilt of deliberate offenders.
It should be easy, too, to mark better routes to Boca
Chita through deep-enough water north and south of
Featherbed. It would be irresponsible not to do that. if
docks and mooring buoys are added at Boca Chita (one of
the most attractive proposals) but even if they're not it's


I- -~
This is the scarred eastern
portion of Featherbed Bank in
Biscayne National Park. The
I deep gouges in the middle are the
al wounds of a recent and especially
severe boat grounding. The darkest
lines are silted-in older trenches
gouged out by powerboats crossing
the bank. The scars' length shows
Srvid e s that when boaters hit bottom, they
roviQders" try to power off the flat rather than
drift to deeper water. The damage
is so bad and extensive that passive
healing has been ruled out.
Eventually, fill will be barged to
the site and new seagrasses will
be planted there. When the park's
management plan is completed,
Featherbed probably will be off
limits to boats with combustion
engines.


probably essential to saving the Featherbeds.
Take a closer look at the ghastly aerial photo of
Featherbed. I think you'll agree that prohibiting combus-
tion engines over it might not be good enough. It says here
that the entire eastern portion should be off limits to all
boats until the major surgery required to restore the bank
is performed and the wounds healed.
That can't work, and neither can a mere no-combus-
tion zone, unless the bank is thoroughly posted and the
limits aggressively enforced. Public education is a won-
derful thing, but laws and regulations are most effective
when there's a ranger around to enforce them.
No-combustion zones arid any area restricted as a
"sensitive resource" should be made small to avoid cur-
tailing access any more than is biologically necessary.
They must be marked well enough to establish a reason-
able inference that any violators are doing it on purpose or
are too ignorant:to be allowed at the helm of a boat.
Here's a great idea: Set up park information kiosks,
staffed by bilingual rangers or volunteers, at every marina
around the park Crandon Park, Matheson Hammock,

It's a boat -

not an investment

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
If the television talking heads are
accurate, the economy is once again on the
upswing. "Excellent!" some of you might
exclaim, "a good economy means it's time
to invest in a new boat!"
Strangely enough, I've heard the
terms "invest" and "boat" used in the same
sentence in recent times.
My first memories of someone
espousing a boat as an investment was
when my Uncle Patcho proudly explained
to the family about how much money he'd
save every year on fresh fish because he'd
catch them for free on his brand new boat.
Two years later after Uncle Patcho
sold the boat, in no small part with the
help of my mother getting him a decent
price for it, we estimated the "free fish"
caught on that boat actually cost my dear
uncle approximately $3,000 a pound.
Uncle Patcho, like many people buy-
ing a boat, try to justify it in some finan-
cial way instead of admitting that the boat
is only going to be used for having fun.
Here's my take on a real investment:
If, after owning an item for a year or
more, you have an easy forum where you
can painlessly sell that item in three days
or less, and get at least the original pur-
chase price along with: all calculated costs
for storage, upkeep, and maintenance,
then you might call such an item an invest-
ment.
Otherwise, it's just another thing in
your life that hopefully gives you
enjoyment.
That being said, I think it would be a
stretch to call any recreational vessel an
investment. Not to say you shouldn't buy
a boat if you really want one. But a boat
purchase should be made with open eyes,
and a healthy amount of planning, wisdom
and skepticism. And while all that may not


turn your boat.into an investment, it might
in the end save you some extra money and
potential grief.
Here are some things to be aware of if
you're thinking about buying a boat:
Odds are, your first inclination will be
to go to a dealer. In the state of Florida not
all commercial boat dealers are created
equal..If a dealer is selling vessels 32 feet
in length or more, for the most part they
are required to be a licensed yacht broker.
A licensed broker has undergone a
criminal background check, is bonded and
required to conduct business within the
parameters of state statutes relating to the
sale of yachts, including putting deposits
into escrow accounts.
Of course disputes can happen and
they can be outside the state's authority to
settle, leaving such situations to be han-
dled by the courts. So, read your contracts
carefully.
If you are looking at boats under 32
feet in length, you're likely to find your-
self working with someone who is not a
licensed yacht broker. Purchases of such
vessels remain outside state yacht statutes,
and there are virtually no regulations
regarding those who sell such boats. So,
extra caution is advisable.
Also, the state of Florida has no
lemon laws pertaining to boats.. A boat
.should be inspected carefully before
acceptance. In most cases, spending
money on a surveyor for both the hull and
the engine is highly recommended. Eveni
brand, new vessels, especially those hav-
ing post factory installation work done,
should be reviewed by a good surveyor.
And it should be understood that
marine surveyors are neither licensed nor'
required to be bonded. Some belong to
national organizations that claim to test

"The Coast Guard bought six of the devices and has ordered six more for use at its
station on Great Inagua in the Bahamas, where the Air Force found the mosquito
problem so bad that it decided the island was uninhabitable," said Lieut. Russ
Hellstem, a spokesman for the Coast Guard Statio, in Cleanvater, Florida.
"Since they put in those mosquito machines, you can actually walk outside without
being attacked," Lieut. Hellstem said. "It's amazing!"

their members by certain standards, but not all good sur-
veyors are members of these groups, and probably not all
members of such organizations will be equally appropriate
for your needs. This means research is in order to find the
best surveyor for your situation.
It should also be remembered that virtually any clause
in a boat purchase agreement can be modified before sign-
ing. If you don't like something in a contract and the other
party won't meet your preferences, don't be afraid to walk
away from a deal, or find assistance.

a long-term commitment: Think very expensive marriage
with all the affection going in one direction.
So, after all is said and done, is a boat still for you?
Well, Uncle Patcho never bought another boat, but it
certainly didn't stop him from fishing. I recall a trip I took
with him and my cousins into the Everglades. After three
days the only thing any of us had caught were mosquito
bites and angry walking catfish.
This resulted in my cousins and I plotting a mutiny, and
threatening Uncle Patcho with being tied up in fishing line
and thrown into the back of the truck. Since none of us were
old enough to drive and Uncle Patcho still had his physique
from his days as a lineman for the University of Florida,
these were truly desperate threats on our part.
Uncle Patcho relented to our demand to leave, but he
shook his head and said, "I don't know why you kids are
complaining. The fish will be biting any minute now!"
It just shows that you don't need to "invest" in a boat
to stay an optimist.

Bonnet House leads the pack of Lauderdale mansions


This is one in a series of special features exploring
landmarks and points of interest along South Florida's
waterways. This month's feature takes a look at the
Bonnet House, one of the first built grand oceanfront
houses in Fort Lauderdale.

By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
While multi-million dollar mansions pop up along Fort
Lauderdale's waterfront, the grand old house that started it
all sits quietly in a tropical jungle-like setting almost hid-
den from public view.
It's not on any tour boat route. Passersby might not even
-know it exists behind the lush vegetation that covers nearly
35 acres of prime oceanfront real estate. But the 84-year-old
Bonnet House is considered by some the grand old lady that
began the city's saga of big waterfront houses.
"We like to say that the house is Fort Lauderdale's best
kept secret' 'said Linda Schaller, director of volunteers. "It's
a shame more locals don't know what's behind the walls and
come and appreciate what a treasure we have."
While 14,000 people year do take the Bonnet House's
public tours, its management team is always surprised at
how out-of-town tourists far outnumber locals who visit.
"The fun part of the job here is to welcome people from
all over the world," explained Roger Smith, who's been dri-
ving a tram around the Bonnet House grounds for seven sea-
sons. "I love it when I can show them the Brazilian spider
monkeys jumping around or the largest Paradise tree in the
world;' he said.
It was Frederick Clay Bartlett who made the house a
reality. The son of a wealthy Chicago businessman, Bartlett
became an accomplished artist, craftsman, designer and avid
collector. He married Dora Tripp in the early 1900s, who
died 18 years later. In 1919 Bartlett met and married Helen
Birch, a musician, composer and poet.
It was her father, Hugh Taylor Birch, a Chicago attor-
ney and avid environmentalist, who had purchased three
miles of oceanfront property (at 80 cents an acre) in what is
today Fort Lauderdale beach. As a wedding gift to his
daughter, Birch gave the couple 35 acres extending from
what is today the Intracostal Waterway to the Atlantic

dramatic look at the eastern side of the estate.

Ocean, including 700 feet of oceanfront. It is just south of
Sunrise Boulevard with the entrance at the end of North
Birch Road.
Birch would give away nearly 1,760 acres of land
including the site that is today the state park off Sunrise
Boulevard that bears his name. He also deeded to the gov-
ernment land that allowed Sunrise Boulevard to be connect-
ed to the ocean.
"The 700 feet of oceanfront is still part of the Bonnet
House although it has always had public access,"
explained guide Diane Linder. Of the roughly 50-plus Fort
Lauderdale houses directly on the ocean, Bonnet has the
largest beach.
In 1920 Bartlett designed and began building Bonnet
House as a Caribbean-style plantation with a massive court-
yard. With only two floors, it was once the tallest building in
Fort Lauderdale.
Every effort was made to make the mansion, with its
impressive columns and iron railing balconies, blend into its
lush tropical surroundings. Tourists visiting the house find it
much the way it looked 80 years ago since all furnishings are
original to the structure.
The grounds include small cottages, quaint bridges over


lagoons and a lush blend of native and exotic flora and
fauna. The house was named after a tiny yellow water lily
called a bonnet, which blooms on the property. A jungle of
mangrove trees on the west side of the estate provide shelter
and food for fish and wildlife. Brazilian spider monkeys can
be seen playing in the trees while raccoons and fox roam the
grounds with a countless variety of birds in trees.
A boathouse is located at the end of a private canal from
the Intracoastal. The east side of the grounds contains a
grove of dozens of mango, avocado, rose apple, citrus and
guava trees. Near a pathway to the beach is what's believed
to be the "largest Paradise tree in the world," standing 65 feet
tall with a girth of 109 inches.
The Bartlett's passion for the arts led to travels abroad
to collect Impressionist works by masters like Van Gogh,
Matisse, Seurat and Gaiguin. Later, their collection of 24
paintings would be given to the Art Institute of Chicago.
From 1920 to 1925, the Bartlett-Birch families used the
Bonnet House for family winters. After his wife's unexpect-
ed death from cancer in 1925, Bartlett continued to call the
Fort Lauderdale mansion his winter home. In 1931, he
began sharing it with his third wife, Evelyn Fortune Bartlett,
who was once married to pharmaceutical king Eli Lilly. She
also possessed artistic talents and a love of nature.
Bartlett's third wife is credited with protecting it. Her
desire to preserve the house in its natural state led her to
deed the property to the Florida Trust for Historic
Preservation in 1983. Friends of the Smithsonian Institution
and the National and Florida Trusts for Historic Preservation
have been instrumental in protecting the site. She died in
1997 at age 109. Frederick Clay Bartlett had died in 1953.

Up close
The Bonnet House is available for tours and pri-
vate gatherings. A number of musical and art pro-
grams take place during the winter months. Call 954-

Sailfish evolves into public art in museum fund-raiser


WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
It's not unusual to see a freshly caught sailfish dangling
from a hook at Fort Lauderdale's charter boat marinas. But
this month the species are also popping up along downtown
sidewalks, in front of an upscale retail shop, an art dealer's
showroom and a host of other trendy spots.
Something's Fishy, the Fort Lauderdale Art museum's
latest fund-raising campaign, reflects the area's marine fla-
vor in an artistic way.
"We thought that the biggest part of life in this area is
the water fishing and boating and what better way to
take on an artistic project than to link it to marine life,"
said Melissa Dobrin of Beaux Arts, the museum's fund-
raising arm.
SFifty six-foot high sailfish have been turned into pieces
of art, to be on public display through February. Eventually,
most of them will end up at a public auction taking place
Feb. 21 as part of a grand opening celebration of the newly
renovated Galleria Mall.
"It's been an exciting venture and we're pleased with
the number of supporters we have received," Dobrin said.
Unusual public art of this nature is not new. In the
1990s Chicago boasted 300 large cows to celebrate the
city's stockyard history, with the fund-raiser earning
$200,000. In Pennsylvania, a dog theme raised $350,000.
In Seattle it was pigs, Norfolk had mermaids, Florida's
Marco Island displayed dolphins and Gainesville created
artistic gators.
Dobrin said the art museum hopes to establish a rec-
ognizable art piece to be seen around the area for years
to come.
In November the 50 unfinished fiberglass sailfish,
placed on iron-base pedestals and measuring about seven
feet high, were given to volunteer artists who created a
unique look for each one. Among the first artists to, sign on
were Guy Harvey, Jean Eastman, Nadine Floyd, Julie
Finch, Julia Black Andrews and others.
Individuals, businesses and groups are sponsoring the
fish artworks in three financial categories of $2,500, $3,000

and $10,000. Sponsor money helps fund artistic materials
needed to create the fish as well as handle transportation to
and from sites, plus storage.
"I was excited about the whole idea as soon as I heard
about it," said Shirley Vangeloff, owner of Scrapbook
Frantic and one of the first sponsors to sign on. Vangeloff's
fish will sit right outside her 4405 N. Federal Highway
retail store. "I can hardly wait," she said.
For the past several months, kids from Jack 'N Jill Day
Care Center in Fort Lauderdale have joined with artist
Heather Porpiglia, who is resident artist at Joe Picasso's
Gallery and one of the creative talents behind giving the
fish an unique look.
"Anytime we can involve people in preserving or pro-
moting art it's wonderful and then when you add children
into the artistic process that's all the better," Vangeloff said,
referring to the Junior League of Fort Lauderdale's "Art to
Grow," a program that has aided the Jack 'N Jill center.
Heather Moraitis, chairman of the Junior League's art
effort, came up with the idea of taking Vangeloff's giant
fish and having all 150 youngsters at the day care center
make hand prints to create its scales. The entire fish was
first painted blue, with various blue and aqua beads glued
to its tail., Porpiglia created a mosaic using different kinds
of glass on the base.
"We wanted to involve all the kids in some way and we
thought the handprints would be perfect," Moraitis said.
All the fish will be on display Feb. 21 at the Galleria
Mall as part of a grand celebration of its new look fol-
lowing extensive renovations. The event will feature an
auction of about 30 of the fish. Those sponsors who
donated $10,000 will keep their fish even though they
will be displayed at the gala. Proceeds will also benefit
the art museum.
Late entries into the project are still available, accord-
ing to Dobrin. For more information call 954-472-4816.

Biscayne seeking public input on proposals to Feb. 6


Dinner Key, Black Point, Homestead Bayfront. Give
everyone going into Biscayne a copy of the rules. Make
sure they know and understand where the slow-speed
zones and limited areas are.
Here's a bad idea: Zones of access by permit only,
drawn in blue on three parts of alternative plan 2 and one
large piece of plan 5. Permit-only rules are-virtually cer-
tain to be inequitable, unworkable and unavoidably unfair.
Who gets permits? Who doesn't? Conflicts are sure to
occur. It figures to be an administrative nuisance, maybe a
nightmare, for the park staff. Enforcement? At any given
time, only five rangers with law enforcement authority are
on duty throughout the park.
More bad: The most restrictive proposal designates
all the shoals and their channels south of Key Biscayne -
nine nautical miles, except for Stiltsville as a no-com-
bustion zone, all the way south to Boca Chita.
That area's variously known as Safety Valve,
Biscayne Shoals and Biscayne Flats. It's crossed by sev-
eral east-west channels but only the one through Stiltsville
is adequately marked. At least four others are traversable
but unmarked, and there are eight deep-water openings
from seaward that don't go fully across the shallows. If
you're patient and a good chart-reader, it's not too hard to
find those depths at low tide on a calm, clear day. Then
again, it's not too easy.
It would be better to mark those channels and partial
so boaters and fishers could go in and out without going

aground. Then the park could justify making the flats .
but only the flats a no-combustion zone.
Good stuff: Sands Key is designated in some plans as
a sensitive resource for the archeological Indian assets it
holds, and as a nature observation zone in other plans. In
one of the plans it's half and half, and in all four there's a
slow speed zone immediately south of Sands, along the
west coast of Elliott Key.
How far down Elliott the slow zone ought to reach is
arguable, but the portion nearest to Sands clearly deserves
support. The final plan there should settle on a combina-
tion protecting that particular environment from overuse,
reducing without eliminating the rafting-up of boats there
on weekends, and protecting the allowed crowds from
those water-skiers who can't enjoy their sport without
spoiling someone else's.
Whether we're power boaters, kayak paddlers, bone
fishermen, divers, water-skiers, sailors or whatever, each
of us needs to remember that the park isn't ours alone.
Those other people own it too, and they care as passion-
ately about their interests as we care about ours.
Some of them, like the Sierra Club, Friends of the
Everglades and Save the Manatees, are much better organized
than boat fishermen. Even though we all agree about the value


of nature, our particular interests can come into conflict.
Pretty soon, boating and fishing people are going to
have to get organized, establish themselves as stakehold-
ers to protect their interests and their access to the parts of
this park that they like best. Steve Petersen, a bonefisher-

Midship


Louisiana's Acadiana where the music is hot, the food hotter


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Many people don't realize that Mardi Gras doesn't just
take place in New Orleans. The second largest event usher-
ing in Lent in the U.S. occurs in Acadiana (pronounced a-
KAY-dee-anna) a region stretching across southern
Louisiana from the Texas border to New Orleans.
The annual tradition begins with the Courir de Gras -
a prelude to Mardi Gras when masked and costumed
horseback riders gallop up to farmhouses along a rural
route. After permission is granted to enter a home, the rid-
ers sing, dance and beg until the owner offers them ingredi-
ents for making gumbo.
This year Courir de Gras takes place on Feb. 24.
People will gather to watch the riders. Revelers will greet
the riders to help cook a savory gumbo with the food that
was collected. The day's festivities conclude with a fais-do-
do a dance ending promptly at midnight with the
beginning of Lent.
It's a rite of passage for many young men in these tiny
southern Louisiana communities. A 45-minute drive from
the Gulf of Mexico, Acadiana is home to descendants of
French Catholics expelled from Nova Scotia (once known
as Acadia), by the British more than two centuries ago. They
settled in Acadina's fertile bayous and prairies.
During the same period, the slave trade brought blacks
from Africa who eventually mixed with Europeans and
immigrants from the West Indies. Their offspring are
today's Creoles. It is from these distinctly similar cultures
that we get the savory Creole cuisine and the stirring sounds
of zydeco music as much a part of the landscape as the
striking antebellum mansions that survive amid sprawling
centuries-old, moss-draped oaks.
Home to many of the best restaurants and music clubs
along the Gulf coast, Lafayette is the heart of Acadiana. It's
home to world-renowned Cajun music group, Beausoleil,
which coined the region's slogan, "let the good times roll."
Performed on fiddle, triangle, guitar and accordion, there is
much hand clapping, stomping heels and twirling partners
to the two-step Cajun waltz sung in French.
Creole blacks brought zydeco's Afro-Caribbean

Both freshwater and saltwater fishing areas are plentiful

Basin to the Gulf of Mexico.

rhythms to the region. These days it's played on pearlized
and gilded accordions, accompanied by a rub board a
corrugated metal washboard worn like a vest and scraped by
a pair of hearty kitchen spoons. Its dance-oriented style is
played nightly at a myriad of local dancehalls.
If you find the music hot, consider Cajun and Creole
cooking. Many dishes are based on a roux, relying on ingre-
dients such as cayenne pepper, okra, sweet potatoes, squash,
beans, corn and sassafras. Genuine cuisine boasts mouth-
watering dishes like crawfish etouffee, chicken fricassee,
shrimp jambalaya and seafood gumbo.
Both freshwater and saltwater fishing areas are plentiful
from the vast swamp wilderness of the Atchafalaya Basin to
- the Gulf of Mexico. Crawfish harvesting is woven through
the Acadian culture with many of today's fishermen second
or third generation. Fresh water crustaceans, red swamp
crawfish and the white river crawfish are the commercial
species. They are gleaned by means of coated wire traps
with funnels to allow the crawfish to enter. The prime har-
vest spots are from natural wetlands, primarily the
Atchafalya Basin, with annual yields ranging from 75 mil-


lion to 105 million pounds.
Acadian tours can include-plantations, homes, muse-
ums, swamp tours and thoroughbred racing. Today, about 45
percent of the population speaks French as a second lan-
guage. The largest city is Lafayette, which has been the cen-
ter of a French renaissance that began in the early 1970s.

Lots to see
Folk life museum Acadian Village, a restoration of 19th
century Acadiana, displays the homes, stores and other
architectural landmarks of the original Creoles and
Acadians. Eight miles from downtown, surrounded by 10
acres of woods, gardens and farmland where cattle and hors-
es graze, resides Breaux Bridge's Mulate restaurant and
dance hall. For two decades it's been a beacon for travelers
in search of high-octane Cajun food and music.
Driving south on a scenic byway visitors take in the
deep green sprouts of a rice field framed against the vivid
blue sky. Sugarcane and pepper farms sprawl alongside
oaks, crawfish ponds percolate with a harvest of red, and off
in the distance a spiky forest of shrimp boats mass along the
bayou.
Jefferson Island, straddling Rip Van Winkle Road, sits
atop a salt dome that rests on the shores of Lake Peigneur. It
features 25 acres of lush, semi-tropical landscaped gardens.
Visit the Victorian home of Joseph Jefferson, a renowned
actor in his era, then watch the sunset across the lake from
Caf6 Jefferson.
Abbeville is a charming town where the old and the new
blend, with French-speaking residents, popular oyster bars
and seafood restaurants residing alongside avant-garde
artists. Magdalen Square is the heartbeat of the town, found-
ed by the priest who discovered Abbeville in 1843. Located
in a small, former department store, Black's Oyster Bar is

Take a lifetime of

experience onboard


Over the last 51 years Ward's Marine Electric has
been invited onboard more fine crafts than
any other company of electrical specialists in the
Southeastern United States. Some of our ABYC certi-
fied electricians are working on some lady of the sea, in
some far off port, every week of the year. Sure, it took
us a lifetime to become known as the electrical special-
ists of the yachting world, and it's something we're
awfully proud of, but our greatest source of pride is
being invited onboard as an electrical specialist.., only
to be invited back as a friend.

Free vessel safety checks available


Free vessel safety checks will be held 9 am. to 1 p.m.
on Feb. 22 at the Alsdorf boat ramp in Pompano Beach.
The ramp sits inside Alsdorf Park, at Northeast 14th
Street at the Intracoastal Waterway. The checks will be con-
ducted by members of the Division m U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary, which has six flotillas in Broward County and
Boca Raton.
Boaters who can't make it to the Alsdorf boat ramp can
schedule a check to be performed privately at their home
dock or marina at no charge, said Gwen Leys, public affairs
officer with the Division mI U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary.


The checks, done by trained examiners, verify the
presence and condition of certain safety equipment required
by state and federal regulations.
Boaters who pass the safety check will receive a stick-
er. There is no penalty for those who don't meetthe require-
ments, Leys said.
"But boaters will know what they need," she said.
For more information call 954-942-8108. For more
information on vessel safety checks log on to www.uscg-
