Input requested

on new boating

facility locations
Plan focuses on manatee protection
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Workshops are underway to gather public opinion for
the third and final installment of Broward County's man-
atee protection plan.
The first of three public meetings was scheduled as of
this writing on March 24 to discuss developing new boat-
ing facilities in the most suitable locations that wouldn't
endanger manatees.
The March workshop, at the Anne Kolb Nature
Center in Hollywood, was slated to be informal.
A second workshop.is being planned for summer,
with a third one to follow in the fall, said Pamela Fletcher,
a natural resource specialist with the Broward County
Department of Planning and Environmental Protection.
The March workshop was to display information col-
lected so far. The workshop this summer will be held to
explain the criteria. The third workshop will be to present
a drafted version of the plan, Fletcher said.

The Boating Facility Siting Plan is then expected to
go to the County Commission for approval this fall. Its
goal will be to find suitable sites that minimize the amount
of interaction between boaters and manatees, a state and
federally protected species.
Boating safely and manatee education components of
the county's manatee protection plan were approved by
Broward County Commissioners in 1992 and were adopt-


ed in the county's comprehensive plan in 2001.
For the Boating Facility Siting Plan, county officials
are seeking contributions from the public, either at the
workshops or by letters and emails, Fletcher said.
A website where the public can view data is also due
to be up and running by April 1, she said.

Expanded BCC sailing facility getting good marks


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Bill Metcalf can barely contain the glee in his voice
over Broward Community College's new watersports
facility.
"We're back!" he exclaims.
The spacious, 5,200-square-foot Tigertail Lake
Center that Metcalf manages opened in January. The pro-
ject's completion marks a long awaited return to Tigertail
Lake in Dania Beach. BCC's club and watersports pro-
grams previously operated from 1997 to 2003 at West
Lake Park in Hollywood.
The college's affiliation with Tigertail Lake dates
back to 1974, when home base for watersports was a 900-
square-feet wooden structure with a large deck, at Gulf
Stream Way and Anglers Avenue.
The building had to be vacated due to development of
Bass Pro Shops. "The only way a road could be built was
right through the middle of our facility," Metcalf said.
Officials tried to save the structure by relocating it
one-quarter mile to the south end of Tigertail Lake. But
the cost of reopening it to the public was more than the

building was worth, he said. The 900-square-foot struc-
ture was scheduled to be razed in March.
Now the new Tigertail Lake Center sits on the lake's
north end.
The $800,000 project was paid by state funds, grants
and student activities fees. The City of Dania Beach
donated the 2.5-acre site along with a 40-year lease,
Metcalf said.
Inside the building, the center boasts two conference

There is also a picnic area, volleyball courts and a
boathouse. A ropes challenge course, an obstacle
course that sits 40 feet above ground and is designed to
foster teamwork, is scheduled to open this summer,
Metcalf said.

New tournament division luring anglers with $50,000 in prize money


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Writer
What's your favorite bait? Live shrimp? Dead mullet?
Trolled balao? Goggle-eyes, tinker mackerel, teenage
mutant Ninja pilchards?
All those catch fish, but the Miami Billfish Tournament
is baiting up with more of that good old reliable green liure
- money for its 22nd annual contest. It's meant to attract
fishers, not fish. The highlight of the Southeast Florida off-
shore season fills the first weekend of April, Friday through
Sunday, taking place at the Miami Beach Marina.
The tournament, also named for prime sponsors
Yamaha (outboard engines) and Contender (offshore out-,
board boats) was rich already with cash prizes in 15 divi-
sions and sub-contests. It paid out a bit above $150,000 in
prize money last year and donated $43,500 to 16 marine-
enhancement and conservation projects.
In the newest division, named the Bacardi USA $5K
Hook-Up, $50,000 will be awarded to the boat crew with the
most billfish if enough of them pay the $5,000 entry fee.
Anyone entering the Bacardi contest also has to enter three
other divisions whose combined fees are $1,650.
Big bucks, but this is not an exclusive tournament for
tycoons. Budget fishers needed only $220 per person to
enter by March 18, and $260 after that.
Riches available to rank-and-file contestants can be
extravagant too, for anyone able to win in two or three divi-
sions. Last year, Tim Maddock won the Master Angler prize
for the most sailfish and his Vitamin Sea Too was the top
team boat. Those awards and winnings in four sub-contests
earned Maddock and his fishing partners $59,172 worth of
money.
"The tournament tries to think up new ways to keep
anglers happy and we thought adding this new cash division
might impress some people to take part in the tournament
and raise a little more money for conservation," said Karen
McGinley, managing director.
It's a requirement that sub-contests donate 15 percent of
their entry fees to marine preservation and enhancement
projects supported by the tournament. To do that and still
award a $50,000 prize, the Bacardi one would need a dozen
entries.

The fellows with the broiled lobster sunburns and
champagne bottles are the crew of Vitamin Sea Too,
celebrating their championship and cash winnings in last
year's Yamaha Contender Miami Billfish Tournament.
Left to right: Brian Eddington, Kenny McArthur,
owner-captain Tim Maddock (holding Tim Jr.) and
Chris Meeks. Yamaha rep Dale Barnes, right, made the
presentation.
"We've received a good buzz going around town about
the $5K Hook-Up, so we think we'll have heavy participa-
tion,"' McGinley said early in March.
At that time, three weeks before the tournament, she
had only six entries, including one for the Bacardi contest.
That wasn't unusual. Typically, 100 or so boats enter this
tournament, each with as many as six registered fishing con-
testants. Typically too, half or more don't enter until near
deadline, which is the eve of opening day.
For example: Tim Maddock, an executive in his fami-
ly's Pompano Beach diamond cutting and tool polishing
business, was tempted to enter the Bacardi competition, but
wanted to see who else threw in before he decided.
If he goes for it, he could be hard to defeat. Maddock,
33 now, bought his first boat in 1992, won his first sailfish
tournament that year and never got over it.
His was also the top team boat in the 1999 Miami tour-
nament. Statistically, he may have his limit of lines in the

record book, but the fish can't know that, can they?
Let's ask Maddock if he did anything especially differ-
ent to win in '03.
"No, everybody was fishing the same way," he said.
"The first day we went way, way, way down south and got
very lucky. We got seven bites and caught six of them.
"There were 30 boats around me and I didn't see anoth-
er one catching anything. We had Joe Neber (the '2002
champion) not even 100 yards away from us as lines went
into the water, and three minutes later we got a double head-
er and Joe got nothing."
If you were on one of those other boats, waiting for
bites, once in a while you might have glanced over
Maddock's way, where there'd be someone standing up with
a rod bent down. You'd look again and there'd be another.
It seemed as if there was one pod of sailfish in that area,
and Vitamin Sea Too had the whole pack in its power.
That was luck too good to last, Maddock figured, so
while a lot of other boats went back there the next day,
Vitamin Sea Too did not. The sailfish must have liked the
hum of the boat's engines and followed it around for three
days. Ten more bit. All were caught.
"You've got to be lucky, but you've got to be good,"
Maddock said. "We went 16 for 17 on sailfish."
Lucky yes, cocky no. Sailfish don't let you get too
puffed up for too long. Neither do your human rivals.
This year, on the first weekend of March, Maddock
fished the Bob Lewis Billfish Challenge and fared poorly.
"The tournaments in Miami The Bob Lewis, the Florida
Billfish Masters and the Miami Billfish Tournament are
the hardest ones to win because of the competition,"
Maddock said.
"Number one, you're dealing with big boats like Get Lit
and Freedom, and with the best sail fishermen out there, bar
none. They fish those waters 250 or 300 days a year. We
don't do that. It's a whole different caliber of competition."

Baynanza's got a boatload of activities on Biscayne Bay


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
You're sitting by a seawall or nestled on your vessel in
Biscayne Bay, when along comes the floating parade: cans,
bottles, bait wrappers, grocery bags, Styrofoam cups, popu-
lation control equipment, all sorts of stuff with valid, even
noble, purposes almost anyplace but right there.
You utter a volley of vulgarities, followed by the ancient
refrain: Why don't they do something about this?
Consider a slight change of wording: Why don't we do
something about it?
Thousands of people will, during the 23rd annual
episode of Baynanza, a month-long celebration of Biscayne
Bay, highlighted by the giant cleanup project on Saturday,
April 17.
By March 12, 3,915 volunteers had registered. The
schedule gives the rest of us plenty of time to join the volun-
teers or to find plausible excuses without shipping more guilt
than we can float.
Typically 6,000 to 8,000 volunteers, never enough,
gather about 19 tons of shoreline trash between 9 a.m. and
noon pretty impressive for three hours, but it scarcely
makes a dent in the unknown quantity of refuse littering
shorelines from Oleta River State Park down through
Biscayne National Park.
That's a lot of territory in length, about 44 nautical
miles on the Intracoastal Waterway too much for They
and Them. Unless We and Us pitch in, the waste in the water
gets worse.
Baynanza is organized by DERM, the Department of
Environmental Resources Management in Miami-Dade
County. Many cleanup volunteers are organized too -
school classes and scouting troops, for example, as well as
senior groups, yacht clubs and a variety of other associations.
Many are individuals, eager to perform an ennobling,
short-term public service less onerous than, say, jury duty or
military combat.
If you have a boat but haven't been using it enough,
Baynanza cleanup day provides an opportunity to run some
fuel through the engine. Boats are needed to ferry volunteers
from five locations to 16 islands in the bay.
"We currently have 15 boat captains registered and we
need 40," DERM spokeswoman Christina Bacogiannis
reported.
What's the attraction? Satisfaction. The only tangible


reward for volunteers will be souvenir T-shirts.
There's a lot more to Baynanza than cleaning the shores
of the bay. Here is a selection of specifically maritime events
on the calendar, in roughly chronological order.
Must-do-it picks are designated with asterisks.

Mythical marriage

at sea


By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
About 500 years ago, the coming of
spring was sometimes referred to as the
"silly season." This might be attributed to
the origins of April Fool's Day.
The tradition began after the creation
of the modem Gregorian calendar in the
mid-1500s, when the first day of the new
year was summarily changed by the pope
from April to January.
Some people were slow to adopt the
calendar change (either through stub-
bornness or a lack of communication)
and continued to celebrate the new year
in April. These people became known as
April's fools and were viewed by the
more sophisticated as gullible and worthy
candidates for pranks. While few, if any-
one, celebrates the new year on April 1
anymore, the tradition of using the day as
an excuse for playing pranks on others
has continued.
The origins of April Fool's Day
shows how misinformation can remain
part of the public psyche and even create
unintended consequences.
An example of this is the belief that
a captain of a vessel has the authority to
perform legal marriages at sea. It is
understandable why this perception is
accepted as fact.
Certainly, almost everyone has read a
book or seen a movie that presents a
happy couple being united in blissful
matrimony by a captain on board a ship.
Indeed, who among us can ever forget the
tense final scene of the movie "The
African Queen" when Bogart and
Hepbum delay their executions by having
the German warship captain marry them?
But alas, as romantic and moving as
such events may be, they are, at least on
a U.S. vessel, the stuff of fiction. The
realty is that captains in command of ves-


sels flagged under most major modem
countries do not have the authority to
perform legally recognized marriage ser-
vices.
Moreover, my research seems to
indicate that captains on U.S. vessels
never had this authority. In fact, under the
Code of Federal Regulations, those in
command of military vessels are general-
ly prohibited from performing weddings,
as stated in 32 CFR, 700.716, which
states, in part:
"The commanding officer shall not
perform a marriage ceremony on board
his ship or aircraft. He shall not permit a
marriage ceremony to be performed on
board when the ship or aircraft is outside
the territory of the United States, except:
(a) In accordance with local laws ... and
(b) In the presence of a diplomatic or
consular official of the United States."
When you consider the way the fed-
eral system works in the United States, it
actually makes some sense that vessel
captains wouldn't necessarily be autho-
rized to perform marriages.
Since the inception of the republic,
family matters including marriage,
divorce and probate were basically rele-
gated to the union's individual states and
territories. Even though the incremental
encroachment of the welfare state has
expanded federal interest in family top-
ics, as of this writing laws regarding and
recognizing marriages remain the
province of the individual states.
Mainly, this means a captain officiat-
ing at a wedding must have some author-
ity granted by local state authorities.
Additionally, the service must be per-
formed within the territory of that local
state to assure its validity.
In Florida, this would mean that a

"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
Hellstern, a spokesman for the Coast Guard Station in Clearwater, Florida.
"Since they put in those mosquito machines, you can actually walk outside without
being attacked," Lieut. Hellstem said. "It's amazing!"

Without state credentials, boat captains

legally can't perform marriages at sea


boat captain who wished to perform marriage services
would also be required to be a judge, a notary public, or a
member of the clergy, or a similar figure which is official-
ly recognized by Florida for the purposes of performing a
valid wedding service. The intended couple should have
acquired their license in advance of the ceremony and
have the proper number of witnesses at the nuptials. It is
also best to perform the ceremony while at the dock rather
than out on the water so there is no subsequent dispute
about jurisdiction.
Now, if someone is interested in what certain travel
services refer to as a "marriage cruise," my research indi-
cates that most cruises work according to the above
description: i.e., preparations are made well in advance for
licenses, witnesses, and for somebody to be present with
the legal authority to perform the ceremony at the dock
before the ship leaves port.
To be fair, I should mention that there does appear to
be a few foreign nations that allow captains of their ves-

sels to perform marriage ceremonies. The noteworthy
examples I found seem to be Bermuda'and Japan. For a
couple to be married by a captain of a Bermuda-flagged
vessel, research indicates that advance arrangements must
be made with the Bermuda government authorities. As for
being married by a Japanese captain on a Japanese ship,
the intended couple must give proof that they are both
Japanese citizens.
So, as you can see, a spontaneous romantic marriage
at sea is, for the most part, the stuff of good drama rather
than good fact.
On the other hand, I did once see a poster on a ship I
served on which read, "All Marriages Performed by the
Captain Shall be Considered Valid Through the Duration
of the Voyage."
Now, if you believe that one, I would say that you just
might be a good April Fool's Day candidate.

Pla an to be w cr in t el's APRIL 2004
Plaza addition to become new chapter in tunnel's history


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in an ongoing series on South Florida
waterfront landmarks. This month's feature looks at
Florida's only tunnel that carries traffic under Fort
Lauderdale's New River.

Walking to work every day on Northeast Third Avenue
in Fort Lauderdale, Sam Poole bemoaned the unsightly area
near the state's only tunnel. So three years ago he gathered
his Rio Vista neighbors together to discuss the concept of
creating a park-like setting there.
Now, plans call for the addition of Tunnel Plaza, anoth-
er chapter in the story of the Henry Kinney Tunnel, built
under the New River in Fort Lauderdale 44 years ago.
"It's going to offer a spectacular view of downtown on
the north side of the river," said Poole who believes the plaza
will rekindle the historic value of the neighborhood.
The plaza is located on top of the tunnel's south entrance,
at the eastern end of Rio Vista Boulevard where the southern
portion of Riverwalk begins.
Now, the area is vacant except for new trees, old con-
crete from the original Federal Highway and the mechanical
building that serves the tunnel.
The city's Downtown Development Authority allocated
$500,000 for the project and a state $200,000 community
affairs grant has also helped cover costs.
Plans call for new lighting, benches, landscaping and
traffic changes to tie into Riverwalk South. Currently Rio
Vista Boulevard runs into the plaza area and circles it before
turning into Southeast Seventh Street. Improvements would
simplify the traffic pattern.
A year ago nine large oak trees were transferred from the
building site of the Las Olas Grand condo on the north side
of the New River to the plaza area. The trees had to be
removed to make way for the new high rise.
The extension of Riverwalk on the south side along
the newly developed New River Village, a condo complex
on Southeast Fifth Avenue, has provided a connection to
the plaza.
"We've been fortunate to get a lot of donated services
and volunteer help to make all this happen," Poole said.
Landscape architect Rhett Roy helped create the master plan.

In the city's early years, traffic came along the old
Federal Dixie Highway (now U.S. 1) and had to wait for
Stranahan to load a car on a barge and float it across the New
River to continue on its way. Today the Stranahan House sits
at the end of the north side of old Federal Highway and is vis-
ible from the south side of river where the tunnel's power and
vent station sits.
By 1915, a swing bridge was erected to handle increas-
ing car traffic and it served the area well until it was replaced
with a low-level drawbridge in 1928. Both bridges were a
nuisance to motorists, who complained about bottleneck traf-
fic when a boat had the right of way.
By .the 1950s, city leaders began to look at building a
taller drawbridge over the waterway. But a newspaperman
had a better idea.
Henry E. Kinney, founding editor of the Miami Herald's
Broward edition, proposed in an editorial that another option
should be explored: a tunnel under the river.
There was no other tunnel in Florida but Kinney didn't
care. He championed his plan, while bitter opponents scoffed
at the idea and pushed for a drawbridge.

Work is moving along on the south side of
Riverwalk that willlink up to the new
Tunnel Plaza.







The fight over the tunnel pitted boaters against motorists,
civic leaders against politicians and neighbor against neigh-
bor. Boaters in favor of the tunnel staged flotillas down the
river forcing the bridge to open and backing up traffic for
long time periods.
It all came down to a public referendum in the fall of
1956. By 607 votes, the tunnel won with 7,008 votes for it
and 6,401 against.
The state of Florida allocated $7.5 million for the work.
Digging deep into the earth below the river was a slow and
noisy process as huge pile drivers broke through rock.
After four years, the completed was four lanes with two
going through each of two tubes. It's 864 feet long, 35 feet
deep and its concrete walls are 10 feet thick. A generator
building sits on top of the tunnel to push out exhaust fumes
from cars.
The tunnel is maintained by the Department of
Transportation at a cost of about $300,000 a year. There are
some 60,000 cars that pass through it daily.
When it was officially dedicated on Dec. 3. 1960, it was
named the New River Tunnel. However, friends of Kinney
pushed for it to be renamed in honor of the man who led the
way to get it built ih the first place. In 1986, it was renamed
for Kinney nine months after his death.

Students join cleanup in boats they built themselves


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
A group of enterprising kids were among volunteers
plucking trash from the waterways in last month's
Waterway Cleanup.
Students from North Fork Elementary School in Fort
Lauderdale used two 10-foot long wooden boats they had
constructed themselves. They also videotaped a docu-
mentary of the experience and wrote a song about the
boat building and cleanup, to be background music for
the video.
"It's been quite and experience for everyone," said
Curtis Tucker, coordinator of the boat-building project and
creator of an online magazine called, Kids Aboard, which
introduces kids age 4 to 17 to the marine world. The pro-
gram is a division of Tucker's Atlantic Coast Boating w eb-
site, which offers marine industry information.
Kids Aboard is a member of the Marine Industries
Association of South Florida, sponsors of the recent


Youngsters from North Fork Elementary were aboard
one of the homemade boats for the annual Watertway
Cleanup. Principal Robert Babay, left, helped christen
the craft.

March 6 Waterway Cleanup. The event attracted 3,000
volunteers, some on foot and others aboard 500 donated
boats collecting more than 55 tons of trash along 300
miles of Broward waterway. It was all taken to 30 trash
sites throughout the county.
Among the more unusual items found this year: a
large neon hotel sign pulled from the Intracoastal near
the Bonnet House in Fort Lauderdale. A number of car
batteries were collected in the Coral Springs area. Two
dead goats also were pulled from the waters near Coral
Ridge Isles.
The North Fork students launched their colorful
white, yellow and green-colored boats the day of the
cleanup at Delevoe Memorial Park in Fort Lauderdale's
Sistrunk neighborhood after school principal Robert
Babay helped christen the boats.
"This has been a great experience for the students and
the entire school," Babay said.
Tucker, a former teacher who began his Kids Aboard
program five years ago, said it's a hands-on effort to help
kids develop teamwork skills and apply math, science,
language and visual arts in a creative manner. He said the
success of this year's boat-building means that it will be
repeated in next year's cleanup.
Assistant principal James Griffin said minority stu-
dents rarely get an opportunity "that allows them to work
together on such a project and learn the value of team-
work." He said the early experience could be important in
forming marine career aspirations.
"I was totally impressed with the way Tucker worked
with the children and generated such enthusiasm for the
boat project," said Kariem Edwards, school guidance
counselor. "This is how we show them that if they work
together and have a goal, it pays off in the end with a fin-
ished product."
Painting the boats was the best part of the process,
kids said. They especially liked being able to leave their
hand and foot prints all over the craft.
"It was a lot of fun," said Terrance Hills, 10, who wag

the first one to climb aboard the boat as he was pushed
into the water at the park. The fourth grader was joined
by Courtney Fullwood, 8; Shawronya Hall, 10 and
Anthonye Major, 6, as they wore bright yellow "Kids
Aboard" T-shirts.
This was the first year that Kids Aboard became
involved in the cleanup. North Fork Elementary students
built their boats in late January as part of the school's
marine magnet program, which encourages greater envi-
ronmental awareness and responsibility.
Kids Aboard also hosted a boat-building workshop
for 150 youngsters at last February's Miami International
Boat Show. During the show, parents dropped off their
kids at the Kids Aboard booth to work on boats.

youngsters in putting finishing touches on the boats they

Big-winnings competition also a free public fishing party


Smaller boats used to have edges, like the traditional
Bimini racing start that allowed the fastest to get where they
were going soonest. Last year that was eliminated; now
everyone picks his spot and is there when fishing's allowed
to begin.
Before that, chumming with live bait was outlawed and
the number of rods in use at any one time was limited.
Before those changes were made, Maddock said, it was eas-
ier for small boats to compete with big ones.
"It's a big boat tournament now," he said.
Could be, but there are many small boats in it every
year, and lots of them are winners Vitamin Sea Too and Joe
Neber's Contender One, to name just two.
Adding prize money doesn't guarantee a big, immedi-
ate jump in entries, at least not right away. Last year, for
example, a new $10,000 prize was instituted. Tournament
participation increased a little, from 101 boats the previous
year to 109 and from 408 registered anglers to 451.
Dollars do drive the intensity of the competitors, but
there's a lot more goodness than greed in the Miami Billfish
Tournament. Its founding fathers included late offshore fish-
ing heroes Bob Lewis and Harry Vernon, whose influence
on the sport remains at high tide. In spirit, they still walk
among us. Two awards are given in their names.
In their time, this event became an early leader in sail

fishing's transition from trophy collecting to catch-and-
release. Two years ago it was among the first tournaments
(and the most important one) to insist upon the use of circle
hooks, now pretty well proven to hook sailfish in the jaw
instead of the guts essential to the survival of fish
released alive.
That's not all. The tournament is as much a free public
fishing party as it is a big-winnings competition. Gather
'round on the late side of each afternoon and butt in with
your ears on any of the impromptu, informal seminars going
on. Hear the competitors explain how they succeeded and
why they were skunked.
There's food and drink and souvenirs for sale, but it costs
nothing to attend. If you spend money, most of it will be con-
tributed as grants to conservation and related projects. There
are some impressive temptations do reach for your wallet:
Marine artist and researcher Guy Harvey contributes an
original painting for auction each year. Yamaha puts up an
outboard engine a 115 horsepower four-stroke this year -.
that's raffled off for $10 a ticket. Contender boat builder Joe
Neber donates a fully rigged 25-foot vessel, raffled for $25
a ticket. If you bought the boat, it would cost you about
$77,000.
There are mini-raffles as well, of goods ranging from
the silly (shirts bearing the donor company's ad) to the sub-
lime, a fishing trip with famous Capt. Bouncer Smith.
Finally on Sunday there's a silent auction of 91 items,

BCC's sailing, windsurfing classes drawing a crowd


"West Lake was very nice and the classes were
always filled," he said. "But we didn't have any facilities
to speak of, like classrooms, offices and a boathouse."
Classes are held during the week for BCC students.
Instruction in sailing, windsurfing, canoeing and naviga-
tion are offered to the public, 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
Cost is $125 for a six-week session.
Participants who pay an additional $40 per semester
can join in other activities such as sailing and snorkeling
trips to the Florida Keys, monthly Friday night socials and
open recreational sailing from noon to 6 p.m. on
Saturday, Metcalf said.
The Saturday morning navigation, windsurfing and
sailing classes are limited to 15 students each. All the pro-
grams are very popular, drawing people ranging from
teens to retirees, Metcalf said.
"We started anew term on March 13 and the sailing and
windsurfing classes were filled well in advance:' he said.
The next term begins in mid-May. Metcalf advises
signing up early.
Jon Groover, a sailing instructor-trainer who also teach-


es windsurfing classes, calls the new facility "wonderful.":
At West Lake, the program operated out of an eight-
by-eight by 20-foot deep overseas container that was
painted to look like a fish tank and used mostly for stor-
age, Groover said.

The city gave BCC the land lease
on the stipulation that the college
opens its facilities and programs
to the public.

"At West Lake, we taught at the picnic tables,"
Groover said. "Here, we can do PowerPoint presentations,
have DVDs, VHS, a 12-foot screen television. It's a com-
pletely different world."
The center's location on the entrance drive to Bass
Pro Shops insures plenty of attention.
"There's a lot of traffic," Groover said. "Everyone
who drives by sees us sailing and having a great time. It's
highly visible. People stop in and ask for brochures. They
start asking questions and a couple weeks later they're in


one of our classes."
Since opening, there's been a lot of interest from the
community. "Because of demand, we're considering
expanding our operations to Sundays," Metcalf said.
Kristen Jones, director of parks and recreation for the
City of Dania Beach, said she is eager to see the commu-
.nity get involved with BCC's programs, particularly the
Ropes Challenge course which develops skills that can be
helpful in all aspects of life, especially decision-making
andself esteem.
The city gave BCC the land lease on the stipulation
that the college opens its facilities and programs to the
public. "We're looking forward to a long, successful part-
nership to enhance watersports in Florida," Jones said.
Marcy Camarco, of Hollywood,, took windsurfing
classes 18 months ago at West Lake Park with son,
Gregory-Camarco, 13, and her son's friend, Gregory
Martin, 13. Camarco said, they plan to sign up for sailing
classes soon, she said.
"It's a great program and it's social as well," Camarco
said: "You meet some great people."

Midship


Edisto, South Carolina has that peaceful, easy feeling


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
When the folks of Edisto Island, S.C. are accused of
living in the past, they smile broadly and take it as a coin-
pliment:
Edisto is located about 45 miles south of Charleston,
a plfce where visitors encounter small town life without
strip malls and bottleneck traffic. There's moss-covered
oak archways, old.country churches, working farms and
antebellumplantation estates. The Intra-Coastal Waterway
at the McKinley Washington, Jr. bridge marks the gateway
to Edisto Island.
Beach houses painted sunny yellow and blue are
accented by sweeping verandas and ever-present ceiling
fans whether they're located near the Atlantic's edge or on
quiet side streets within earshot of the surf. Palmetto
Boulevard is the main drag, four lanes before it narrows to
two around St. Helena Sound.
Once the horfie of the Edistow Indians, the island still
bears the imprint of its first inhabitants. In Edisto Beach
State Park, an oyster shell mound shimmers in the dis-
tance, the shells whitening, like bleached bones under
ubiquitous live oaks.
Early English settlers in the 17th and 18th century
lived off the sea as well as cultivating cash crops such as
rice, indigo and sea island cotton, the latter responsible
for bringing great wealth to the island during the cotton
era when many of Edisto's elegant houses were built.
Today, most of the former cotton fields have reverted to
woods, while others have been turned into fields of
melon, tomatoes, lettuce and other truck crops.
Each afternoon a flotilla of shrimp boats and deep-sea
vessels return to the docks, unloading king mackerel, dol-
phin, sailfish and wahoo caught about 50 miles offshore
in the Gulf Stream. Spring brings warmer waters and
aggressive reds in the flats..Anglers are allowed to keep
two reds per day in the legal slot limit of 15 to 24 inches.
Sea trout, flounder and ladyfish also are moving back in
from offshore waters.


Edisto, SC is located about 45 miles of Charleston, a
quiet place without strip malls or bottleneck traffic.

Plenty to eat
Surrounded by antique tractors and a 1910 Ford, Bell
Buoy Market (a fixture for 30-plus years) is credited by
some for serving "the best shrimp on the island."
Overlooking the Atlantic, the Pavilion restaurant
serves Chef Dennis Boyd's brand of fusion seafood along
with American Bistro, Northern Italian and island cuisine.
Locals rave about the'shrimp Creole, braised red snapper
and Cajun shrimp.
Over at Po-Pigs Bo-B-Q, there's barbeque ribs, hash
and sandwiches as well as a 30-item buffet. Comfortable
and relaxed, the Sea Cow Eatery dishes up perfectly sea-
soned selections ranging from barbequed chicken to
stuffed filet mignon to local seafood as well as scrump-
tious homemade desserts.
Keep your eyes peeled for a low country oyster roast.
It's a tradition that has been passed down through genera-
-tions. Oysters from the fertile South Carolina salt marsh-
es are placed on the grill and covered with a wet burlap
sack to loosen their hinges. Once they've been heated for


five or so minutes, it's time to eat. Optimum tools for
opening them are a heavy-blade knife and a pair of cotton
gloves to protect against the hot oysters. Slide the knife
between the shells; open and enjoy. Douse them with hot
sauce or lemon juice, slide them on a cracker or enjoy
them straight from the shell.
There are no inns or B&Bs on the island, but there is
a wide selection of homes and condos to rent that sur-
round the beachside road. If it's ultimate peace and quiet
you're searching for, lodging is tucked away just off the
marshlands and back creeks.

To see
Fish or Cut'Bait Gallery includes scenes of the South
Carolina coastal ambiance, spiritually expansive art and
creations. The gallery spotlights the work of over 50 arti-
sans, from ceramics to fabrics, sculpture to photography,
jewelry to paintings.
The Edisto Island Museum serves as an advocate for
historic preservation on the island. The Edistow Indians left
a part of themselves behind pottery shards, a guano
spreader, sweetgrass baskets, photographs and fine porce-
lain. And they all have a story to tell. It's a history that began
long before Europeans first settled here and long before cot-
ton was king on numerous Edisto Island plantations.
Rich in Native American history, Edisto Beach State
Park is a remote sea island where a variety of shells dot
the 1.5-mile beach and the state's tallest palmetto trees
border the forest. Its 1,225 acres also include dense oak
forest and expansive lagoons where visitors can marvel at
a variety of wildlife, including great blue heron tiptoeing
about in great salt marshes.

Commerce at 888-333-2781 or visit www.edistochamber.com

Setting A Record
Photo/ALAN ZAREMBA
Coral Gables sportsman Martin Arostegui caught
this 8-pound butterfly peacock on a fly in a Miami-
Dade canal on March 11. It was submitted to the
International Game Fish Association for world record
consideration. Arostegui used a 7-weight fly rod and a
leader with a 10-pound test tippet. His fly was Marty's
Peacock Clouser, Arostegui's version of a weighted
streamer first designed for smallmouth bass by
Pennsylvania guide Bob Clouser. If you live beside a
freshwater canal or lake in Miami-Dade, Broward or
southeast Palm Beach counties, there's a good chance
that fish like this are swimming in your back yard
right now.

ODYSSEY" Drycell Batteries
Military Grade Batteries
Only ODYSSEY is based on the same battery technology offered
by EnerSys to the military for aircraft and tank batteries.
Guaranteed longer service life
With a twelve year design life and a six-to-ten year service life, ODYSSEY
saves you time and money because you do not have to replace the battery
as often.
2 Year Storage Life
ODYSSEY battery, when fully charged, can be stored for up to 2 years
at 25'C (77F). Simply recharge and ODYSSEY is returned to full power.
Superior Cranking/Charging
The 5 second cranking power of ODYSSEY batteries is double to triple
that of equally sized conventional batteries, and there is no limitation on
the inrush current, so the user is assured of fast charge recovery.
Deep Discharge Recovery
400 charge/discharge cycles to 100% depth of discharge (DOD). ODYSSEY
is the only battery that can recover from such abuse.
