Salts of all skills to set sail in annual Hospice Regatta


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront news Writer
The annual Hospice Regatta off the shores of Fort
Lauderdale has always managed to attract sailors of all lev-
els.
"People who won't race any other time of the year will
come out and participate in this," said Bruce Ownby, who
has participated in every Hospice Regatta since its start
seven years ago and now co-chairs the organizing commit-
tee for the 2004 race, taking place May 22
The regatta draws first-timers and old salts alike to its
12-mile, multi-leg course that is designed to offer all par-
ticipants a fun day of sailing, regardless of their skills, said
Ownby, a former commodore for the Gulfstream Sailing
Club in Fort Lauderdale., ..,.
"It's a very relaxed race," said Suzy Batzer, special
events coordinator for HospiceCare of Southeast Florida,
Inc. "We try to make it very family orientated and fun."
Proceeds from the regatta and its after-race party, a
New England clambake, benefit HospiceCare, which was
formed in 1997. The non-profit group provides care and
support to individuals living with life-limiting illnesses and
their families, Batzer said.
"It's a great event for a great cause" Ownby said.
"Everybody has a great time. It's not super competitive and
it gives people a chance to enjoy the water."
The race has a staggered start, meaning the slower
boats go first. There's also a large ocean course, where
there's a lot of reaching, Ownby said.
This year's Eighth Annual Hospice Regatta will kick
off at 11 a.m., just north of Port Everglades. Participants
will head north to the Hillsboro Inlet, then back to the port.
Entry is $100 per boat. Discounts are available for


early registration and U.S. Sailing members.
One of the new features in the competition is a rewards
program. For every dollar raised, participants can earn
points toward prizes such as caps, dinners and a week's
vacation in the Bahamas, Batzer said.
Bringing in donations is not mandatory. "It's not a pre-
requisite, but it is appreciated and welcomed," she said.
The regatta's entry fee includes a skipper's reception
the night before, a goody bag and admission to a New
England clambake that will follow the race.
Tickets to the clambake only are $50 per person. The
event will begin at 6:30 p.m. in Esplanade Park, across the


The annual Hospice Regatta, taking place May
S22 off Fort Lauderdale, is considered "a
relaxed race." Pictured at the starting line just
north of Port Everglades is the Chesapeake,
formerly owned by Walter Cronkite and
currently owned and skippered by Herb
Ressing, in last year's event. Also pictured is

Batzer, principle race officer.





street from the Museum of Discovery and Science, 401
SW Second St., in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Guests will be treated to Maine lobsters, clams, rum
drinks, clam chowder, a reggae band and a silent auction.
Trophies will also be awarded to regatta winners in sever-
al classes.
The festivities have become HospiceCare's largest,
community-based fundraiser. All totaled, the regatta and
clambake have raised close to $300,000 over the past seven
years, Batzer said.
The first regatta held off Fort Lauderdale had 36 boats.

New agency seeks to become boating clearinghouse


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
A new agency that was formed last summer is seek-
ing to give recreational boaters and the marine industry a
one-stop shop to deal with statewide boating and water-
way-related issues.
Major Jim Brown, who serves as director, said the
agency's creation in August merges people with boating-
related jobs from different sections of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
"Right now, we're trying to prioritize," he said of the
many issues facing the agency's staff.
The Florida Legislature passed a bill last year to
establish the Office of Boating and Waterways, using
monies from the state's marina fuel tax. The office, with
its staff of 12, is based in Tallahassee and is a division of
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The office is designed to deal with questions from the
public on signage issues, boater education, marine law
enforcement and construction and maintenance of public
boat ramps.
Frank Herhold, executive director of Marine
Industries Association of South Florida, calls the office's
creation "one of the best things that's happened to boating
in a long time.
"Now, instead of going to 10 different agencies or

departments, we can go to one with our issues," Herhold
said.
The office was allocated $2.5 million for the 2003-
2004 fiscal year. The funding will increase annually for
the next five years. In the fifth year, the funding will cap
at $13.4 million, pending approval from the Florida
Legislature, Brown said.

To better serve the public,
the agency is working on two
major projects ...

The monies will be used toward meeting several leg-
islative mandates, Brown said.
They include improving and enhancing boating
access in the state through boat ramps and other infra-
structure; administering boating safety programs; coordi-
nating the removal of derelict vessels; and providing
information on marine events such as regattas and boat
shows, he said.
To better serve the public, the agency is working on


two major projects: One is a boating access study to
determine the needs statewide and where priorities should
be with future funding, Brown said.
The other is a boating summit to be held in May with
various state and federal agencies.
"One of the summit's goal is for us to help boaters
and others cut down their search and find out who they
must contact," Brown said. "Through the summit, the
office can find out how these agencies fit together and
their impact on boating."
Capt. Paul Ouellette, who oversees waterway man-
agement for the Office of Boating and Waterways, said it's
the agency's goal to give answers.
"We, like the public, are very sensitive to the fact that
people have been passed around," Ouellette said. "We
want to expedite the process."
Ouellette, who was bor in the Florida Keys and
raised in Fort Lauderdale, is one of three native Floridians
heading the new agency. Brown was born and raised in
Homestead. Capt. Richard Moore, who oversees boating
safety, is from the Southwest coast of Florida.
"We recreationally boat and have since we were kids,"
Ouellette said. "So when we're faced with these issues,
people are not getting perspective from someone who's
just moved here."

Canoes and kayal
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Dick Dillman was extolling his tiny sit-on-top kayak,
so festooned with fishing accessories that there's barely
enough room for his backside. With him raising the cen-
ter of gravity, it looked like a good boat for swimming, but
he swore he had paddled it on all sorts of waters, even the
ocean "and it never tips."
He shouldn't have said that. I'll get back to why later.
Four of us had gathered on a Saturday morning at
Carestown, the Tamiami Trail turnoff to Everglades City
and Chokoloskee, for a weekend of fly-fishing in the
Everglades.
Our motley fleet: Dick's kayak, Ed Fisher's narrow
square-stem, tunnel-hulled semi canoe with a two-horse-
power outboard engine and electric trolling motor and
Gary Meyer's conventional canoe with your correspon-
dent here playing second paddle.
Ever since Dick and Ed acquired their vessels, they've
been tinkering to better adapt them to the kind of fishing
they like most.
Ed would rather cast flies than paddle, so he added the
outboard to the stem and then the trolling motor to the
bow of his 14-foot Indian River boat. The troller has an
extended control handle, so the operator can operate with-
out traveling from end to end. Though narrow, the boat
has catamaran-like stability due to a tunnel hull a length-
wise indentation about the width and depth of Fisher's
forearm.
He already had a standard canoe, but bought the
hybrid last summer on an impulse: "I have a friend who's
six foot six inches [tall] and weighs like 300 pounds. He
wanted to go fishing with me. No way he's going to get in
the green canoe. So I saw this one for $400 and bought it.
Then my friend cancelled out, and he's never been on it. I
didn't know what to do with it for a while."
He had bought the little outboard for the canoe after
deciding that he was wasting fishing time by paddling to
adjust his position after every two or three casts. After
mounting the outboard he added the troller and a heavy-
duty battery. Now he had a boat he couldn't lift onto his
car, so he had to buy a trailer. He has about $2,000 in the

Little boats catching a lot of fish

^SL -

Here's fly fisherman Ed Fisher with his 14-foot hybrid
canoe/boat. Though narrow, its tunnel hull gives it great
stability and minimal draft.
thing by now, and loves it:
"I catch four times as many fish with that as I did
before. You can troll against the wind and if it's strong you
just go with it and correct it, and you're always casting,
always casting."
Gary, who organized our outing for the South Florida
Fly Fishing Club, had expected at least a dozen members.
Wind blew the rest back into bed or there might have been
some conventional outboard bay and flats boats among us.
Then again, maybe not. As we convoyed to our first
launch site, I was surprised to see car after van after pick-
up carrying canoes and kayaks but towing no outboards.
This went on for two days. If there was even one outboard
in tow on the Trail, I missed it.
Dick Dillman hauled his kayak, a mere eight-footer,
in the stem of a small station wagon. Except for the fly
rods mounted on the starboard side, with lawn sprinkler
pipes protecting their tips, that thing looked like a kid's
beach toy, barely protruding past the wagon's stem hatch.
Along the westbound traffic lane, where the canal
runs along the Trail, there are places aplenty to pull over
and launch something little. There's no back-and-fill
space at all for even a small flats skiff on a trailer.

Snook and tarpon mingle with bass far upland of the
salinity line. Lots of little creeks wiggle through the saw-
grass. Paddle into one of those and in about a minute you
can be out of sight of the highway, hoping a compass is
good enough to get you back.
I hadn't gone that far west on the Trail in such a long
while that I'd forgotten how much upland fish water is out
there and how nearly impossible it is to get a "real" boat
in there.
Up to now, it's been our view that a canoe is a good
secondary choice for fishing, and that a kayak is suitable
for spearing seals, but not to fish from unless there's no
other boat available.
In a lot of places we paddled that weekend in the
Everglades, no other boats could have gone. Gary and I in
the canoe and Dick on his kayak went through mangrove
creek tunnels so low, so narrow, that at times we had to
prostrate ourselves to fit under the branches and pull our
boats along by hand.
For exploration alone it was worth the trouble, but we
also saw schools of snook swimming in those shallow
creeks, often no deeper than my knees and little deeper
than Gary's ankles.
In one such, Dick Dillman's boast about his kayak -
"It never tips" came back to laugh at him. We were
stopped among the mangroves, taking a break, when the
overhanging reel on one of his mounted fly rods snagged
a root. Gary saw it catch and was about to mention it.
There was ever so little current, maybe only the tide
moving, but it unbalanced the snagged kayak just enough
to alter its center of gravity. The little boat went wibble-
wobble, and overboard went Dick. We withheld our
laughter until we saw the water was just waist deep.
Dick had told us about his back surgery, arthritis and
joint replacement, so we watched with interest as he
turned the kayak right side up and hauled himself back on

Building your own carrying rack may be simple, but not easy


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Hauling a short, light canoe around on a compact pick-
up truck is easy, once the hard part's finished.
That's the construction of a carrying rack not too
hard, but a long way from the easy job I imagined. Maybe
that's because it's so easy to mix up the word easy with the
word simple.
Is it worth the trouble? Sure. My choices were to spend
from $100 to several hundred dollars on a ready-made carri-
er, or to build my own and save the money for fishing.
I got the idea from Dave Hunt, president of the South
Florida Fly Fishing Club. He got it from a guy who worked
at Bass Pro Shops:
"He made his from oak, and it was very nice but of the
same design," Dave said. He made his of plain pine. So did I.
We drive the same kind of pickup, a Ford Ranger, so I
knew that what worked for him would work for me.
We like the design for the same reasons: "You can't see
the bow of the boat in the driver's seat," he said. Good. I dis-
like driving with a canoe blocking part of my vision, along
with the rope tying the boat to the front bumper. The
Ranger's cargo bed is six feet long and five feet, five inches
wide. That's wide enough for a rack carrying a pair of
kayaks, or even two narrow canoes.
I thought of fitting some sort of roller to my rack, but that
seemed a little too complicated. Hunt agreed; he glued out-
door carpet to his rack and his canoe slides across it easily. I
did the same.
The middle third and a bit more of my 15-footer will
rest above the truck bed, with the bow just about at the top
of the windshield and the stem protruding past the stem of
the pickup. Hunt's canoe is a 16-footer, with the added foot
to rearward.
Too far for stability? No. The key is the tie-down straps.
Hunt through-bolted an eyebolt near each end of each cross-
beam and bought three straps with hooks on the ends.
With the hooks in the bolt eyes, one strap secures the
canoe to the forward beam and the second does the same job
on the rear beam. The straps are tightened with ratchets.
The third strap tightens between a stem shackle on the
canoe and the trailer hitch of the truck, preventing lift and
wave-around movement there.
"When you ratchet each strap down it ties the supports
together and makes it impossible for the supports to come out
of the truck," Hunt said. "When you are finished, try and

shake the canoe loose. You won't."
No foam pads or other easily-lost things are needed to
support the end above the cab. Pickup trucks aren't sold with
roof racks. I'd never noticed that before. Maybe there are
good reasons.
Our rack is strong, portable and easy to build with com-
mon hand tools. Power tools will help finish the job faster,
but you can do all the cutting without them if you're steady-
handed, have good eyesight and remember to measure twice,
cut once.
The only power tools I used were a circular saw and a
drill. If you don't do much woodworking, here's a reminder:
Lumber sizes are phony. A two by four is really one and a
half by three and a half. A two by two is one and a half by
one and a half.
The biggest problem was fitting the two-by-four legs to
the pickup's stake pockets, those rectangular holes on the
side rails. They seem to be sized with no standard lumber cut
in mind.
Cutting the base ends of our two by fours to fit the pock-
ets almost perfectly would have been easy with a power
router. I don't own one. Neither does Hunt.
He used an electric circular saw to trim the ends of his


.4.

vertical posts as tenon joints to slip into the pockets, six inch-
es deep. A snug fit, almost tight, is best.
I knew I'd waste a lot of wood that way. Instead, I fas-
tened 36-inch pieces of two-by-two lumber to the edges of
my two-by-four vertical posts, which are 30 inches high -
making a sort of stem that reaches the bottom of a stake
pocket.
The two-by-two perfectly fit the inch-and-a-half width
of each pocket, but that left a two-inch gap in the pocket's
length. In the lumber dodge there's no such thing as a true
two, so you make do.
You know those strips of wood used as spacers between
bundles of lumber on a stack at the store? I used two of those,
glued to each other and each of the two-by-two stems, to fill
the vacant pocket space. Now the stems were too fat for the
length of the pockets, so I shaved them to fit.
That left the two-by-fours resting entirely atop the side
rails of the pickup bed. Take the time to get a proper fit and
the load will be shared by the stake pockets.
Avast. Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves.
To begin, calculate the number of linear feet of two-by-
four you'll.need. Let's see: For the Ranger, it takes four ver-
to o toa. aina

1: Assembled for fitting but unfin-
ished, the canoe rack was built with
the tools shown: Tape measure,
clamps, level, wood filler, eye-bolts,
electric saw and sander, hand saw.
2: Crossbeams must be at least as long
as the distance between outboard
edges of stake pockets. Ours are about
6 inches longer, matching the truck's
full width.
3: Strips of 2x2 wood are added to 2x4
vertical posts. The extended 2x2 will fit
into stake pockets (6 inches deep) with
2x4 resting on cargo box rails. No need
for 2x2 to reach more than halfway up.
4: It took two scrapwood spacers to fill
out the post legs for a snug fit. Because
the spacers are so thin, these were
glued and doweled to avoid protruding
screw heads.

Admiralty

Law


When innocence

is a legal burden

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
There was a time when having an
adventure at sea meant you were a
crewmember rather than a passenger.
The thought of actually paying to go
on a lengthy ocean voyage without a
planned purpose was not generally con-
templated. Indeed, a 19th century British
admiral even once remarked, "Any person
who would pay to go to sea for pleasure is
the same person who would rent a room in
Hell!"
Life at sea was rough. In fact, you
might recall that the pilgrims paid for their
passage to America and didn't have a fun
time at all.
Taking an ocean voyage for mere
enjoyment is a relatively new concept in
the history of sea travel. For most purpos-
es, the idea of the modem "tourist" dates
back to less than 150 years ago -just after
the Civil War, with the writer Mark Twain
as its premier chronicler.
SSam Clemens (Mark Twain's real
name) had been hired to write a syndicated
column on the first voyage of Americans
taking what would now be called a tourist
package to Europe and Israel. Practical
steam travel had by then allowed for
speedier and safer trips across the ocean
that permitted more luxurious accommo-
dations for paying passengers. Clemens
wrote his columns on the easygoing
naivete of his fellow travelers and himself
in this new world of globetrotting tourism.
His columns became exceedingly popular
back in the states, and he eventually com-
bined them into his first best selling book,
"The Innocents Abroad'"
Though Clemens made the persona of
the naive and innocent American tourist
amusing reading material, it's not an ideal
situation for the modem traveler paying for
an ocean voyage.


You see, while modem cruiseliners
designed for the passenger trade may look
like and even advertise themselves as lux-
ury hotels, they are, in fact, "boats."
Passengers should understand that once
they board a cruise liner, they are subject to
the laws of boats on the water.
Laws relating to passengers on ships
have changed very little since the times
preceding Mark Twain's treatises on the
naive American traveler. This means that,
to a degree, the law expects a passenger on
a vessel to be a rather sophisticated and
self-sufficient character.
Ordinarily, the captain and crew of a
vessel is not obligated to wan you about
open and obvious dangers, i.e., if a passen-
ger encounters a low-lying passageway
that everyone else can see and the passen-
ger fails to duck, the resulting accident
would probably not be considered negli-
gence on the part of the captain or crew.
In most cases, the standard is reason-
able care under the circumstances. This is
not as high a standard as might be avail-
able to someone in other venues. It means,
for the most part, should an incident occur
resulting in loss or injury, it's the passen-
ger's burden to show that the carrier acted
with negligence or had constructive
(should have known) notice of the condi-
tion causing the loss or injury.
A passenger should be savvy in the
ways of travel, before the voyage ever-
starts. It is the court's present view (and
throughout history it seems) that the terms
of the passenger's ticket will be regarded
as a "freely negotiated agreement ... where
both parties had bargaining power." This
means that a passenger is generally subject
to the terms put forward on their boarding
ticket even the small print.
In recent cases, acceptable clauses on

tickets have included:
Requiring a passenger to report loss or injury in writ-
ing within six months of the incident;
Requiring a passenger to file suit concerning a loss or
injury within one year of an incident (note: no extensions
will be given, even if you're in negotiations at the time);
Requiring a passenger to file suit in the venue chosen
by the carrier on the ticket.
The "choice of venue" clause on a ticket has always
been an issue of concern since some venues can prove
inconvenient. Yet, in most cases, the courts have found them
to be valid and "freely negotiated."
However, on a recent ticket for a voyage on a well-
known vessel, I noticed that the choice of venue clause
required that a passenger file their suit "in admiralty," which
I have not seen on previous tickets. What many passengers
(and even some lawyers) may fail to understand is that when


U -

S *


a case is filed "in admiralty," it usually means that the case
will be tried without a jury.
Whether this addition to the choice of venue clause will
prove valid to the courts is uncertain, but I believe it's an
issue to be considered by potential travelers when choosing
their next voyage.
Being an innocent tourist might make you an amusing
character in a story, but not if you incur a loss. So, be careful.

Can Japanese captains
perform marriages at sea?

To the Editor:
In the maritime law column in the April 2004 issue of
waterfront-news.com, columnist Mark Ercolin states, "As
for being married by a Japanese captain on a Japanese
ship, the intended couple must give proof that they are
both Japanese citizens."
I have seen this oft stated on the web but can he jus-
tify the statement?
The Maritime Section of the Nagoya Port Authority, to
whom the Japanese Embassy referred me on this matter,
report that current Japanese maritime law does not permit it.
Apparently, the captain has a number of duties and
authorities including burials at sea and police powers, but.
no statement was found concerning the authority to per-
form the marriage ceremony. However they do not rule
out the possibility that in the past there were such cases.

Unusual spring-fed lake stands out in urban Lauderdale


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in a series of stories exploring landmarks
along South Florida's waterways.

There's plenty of ocean or canals in Fort Lauderdale's
eastern neighborhoods. But it's rare to find a freshwater lake
only a stone's throw away from the salty ocean.
The lake sits at the base of a ridge, looking very much
out of place in traditionally flat South Florida. It remains not
only an attraction, but also an oddity.
"There's no doubt about it that the lake is a surprise find
for many people," said 86-year-old Robert E. Koenig, who
lives near Cliff Lake, located off Southeast 15th Street.
In the 1800s pioneer Florida developer Henry Flagler
plowed his way through swamps and dense brush to make
way for modem-day South Florida. To connect Palm Beach,
Fort Lauderdale and Miami, Flagler dug out rock quarries
along the coast to build roads.
A major limestone ridge extending along the Florida
coast served as the rock base for many roadways. A quarry.
dug off the east side of Southeast 10th Avenue created Cliff
Lake. Today, a near jungle-like setting of old tall trees sur-
rounds the lake. The area is bounded by Rio Vista on the
north, Lauderdale Harbors on the east, and Harbordale on
the south and west.
"People think this is salt water, but it isn't," Koenig said.
"It's a fresh water lake fed by an underground spring
because the water table always remains constant and doesn't
change with the tides."
The lake derives its name from a notable high cliff that
extends along the western side of the lake. In some spots it
measures nearly 20 feet tall. Standing on the east side, along
Southeast 12th Way, the site looks more like hilly
Pennsylvania than flat Florida.
Tony Irvine, surveyor with the City of Fort Lauderdale's
engineering department, said the lake covers about 2.5 acres
and is one of only two lakes in the city that are spring-fed.
The other is Lake Melba off Northeast 20th Avenue, west of
Federal Highway, running between Northeast 18th and 14th
streets. All other lakes in the city are linked to canals com-
ing from the ocean.
"It's quite a sight," said Koenig, a 50-year resident who


Teenagers use the lake as a
local hangout. Enjoying the
water are Phil Oliver, 18, of
Davie and Veronica McLeod,
16, of Hollywood.


UetSte


lives at the southern edge of the lake in a co-op development
known as Cliff Lake Village. "We're about 11 feet above sea
level here at my place, but it gets much higher toward the
northern end of the lake."
The neighborhood has historic significance because
the oldest and first cemetery in Fort Lauderdale sits atop the
cliff's western side.
Evergreen Cemetery opened in 1912, according to
Marilyn Rathbur, research librarian for the Fort Lauderdale
Historical Society. Prior to that, burials took place in Dania.
The 12-acre city-owned cemetery along Southeast
Fourth Street is the final resting place of some prominent pio-
neer families including Frank and Ivy Stranahan. The ceme-
tery also has graves of five Civil War Confederate soldiers.
"I watch over this place and make sure they keep it up,"
said Koenig, who has become known as a watchdog of sorts,
making sure that city ground crews keep things trimmed. "I
want to protect this area for the families who have loved ones
here," said Koenig.
Across the lake, there's only about a dozen private res-
idences on Southeast 12th Way, which runs along the lake's


east side.
"I love it here because it's so safe and quiet," said Daniel
Crosby, a three-year neighborhood resident. "I can walk my
two boys along the lake and they have fun seeing the ducks
and the two big iguanas we have out there."
For Montel Davis it's the fish that draws him there each
week. "I heard about the lake from buddies and I've been
catching bass here for months," said Davis, a Fort
Lauderdale resident who doesn't live near Cliff Lake.
For some teenagers, the "hang out" is a giant banyan
tree with a long rope dangling over the water. "Everybody
comes here to hang out and swing on the rope," said Phil
Oliver, 18, of Davie.
"I like it because it's fresh water and there are no alli-
gators," said Veronica McLeod, 16, of Hollywood, who vis-
its the lake with friend Nicole Burkett, 17, also of
Hollywood, who loves jumping from the rope into the lake.
The two discovered the place through a friend, whose grand-
mother lives in the area.
But quarries can be very dangerous, said Sgt. Larry
Whitford, Broward Sheriff's Office marine unit supervisor
and dive team commander. Quarries have sudden steep
drops. Heavy weeds can entangle swimmers.
"Anytime you're swimming without a lifeguard,
you're taking a risk," he said.

Marine magnet student has designs on yachting career


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Since she was a kid, Karina Heidersberger has
enjoyed boating. Now 18, she is graduating from
Stranahan High School in Fort Lauderdale with hopes of
eventually becoming an interior yacht designer.
"I know I have a lot more to learn, but I believe that if
you have a passion to do something, then nothing should
stop you," Heidersberger said.
She joins many current high school graduates this
month planning marine careers.
Some, like Heidersberger, start out in Broward
County School's marine science magnet program at New
River Middle School in Fort Lauderdale, where 110 stu-
dents are now enrolled in marine studies. The program has
been in place eight years.
"Karina was a wonderful student and always eager to
learn," said James Sanderson, her former teacher at New
River Middle.
Many middle school students go on to South Broward
High School, which draws about 150 students in marine
studies each year.
The magnet program makes kids aware of jobs in the
marine industry, said Leslie Brown, director of magnet
schools for Broward Schools.
"We expose middle school students to a variety of
marine careers, but become more technical at the high
school level, so they actually go into the job market after
graduation or are prepared to go to college for additional
studies in the marine field," Brown said.
There's 60 magnet school study programs available to
Broward students. It is unclear how many marine magnet
students enter marine careers.
"We have just started a tracking system so we will
better be able to monitor our graduates and see who real-
ly gets into marine industry jobs," Brown said.
She said preliminary reports show that 27 percent of
marine graduates work in some type of marine job after
graduation, while others continue their education.

Karina Heidersberger works as a salesperson at
BoatU.S.
Heidersberger grew up in a boating family. Her father,
Gerhard, is a German native who sailed boats across the
Atlantic several times and took his family on annual boat-
ing vacations to the Bahamas.
"I grew up loving water and knew that I wanted to be


able to do something job-wise linked to it," she said.
While she's been a first mate on her father's 30-foot
powerboat, Heidersberger also owns her own 13-foot
Boston Whaler, which she's painted red and white and
named, Hot, Hot, Hot.
She considered becoming a charter boat captain
before deciding to tap her creative skills and go into inte-
rior and exterior yacht design.
"My boyfriend is a charter captain, but I decided I
wanted to do something different and creative," said
Heidersberger, who has worked over two years at
BoatU.S. marine supply store in Fort Lauderdale. "I've
learned a lot about different aspects of boating by working
at the store and helping customers with their buying
needs," she said.
She will also volunteer at the upcoming Plywood
Regatta on May 15 and 16 at D.C. Alexander Park on Fort
Lauderdale beach. The two-day event, where students
build boats with donated supplies and then put them in the
water, raises funds for marine magnet school programs.
Students divided into 36 teams will participate.
"I will always be' grateful to what I learned being
involved in the-regatta and the people I met,"
Heidersberger said.
Next fall she plans to major in general studies at
Broward Community College and then attend Florida
Atlantic University's design school.
She'd love to go to Fort Lauderdale Art Institute's
yacht and marine design school, but said her scholarship
money isn't enough to cover the costs. Aside from her job
at BoatU.S., Karina also works at Chuck's Steak House in
Fort Lauderdale to raise money for schooling.
"I have a pretty busy life, but I'm looking forward to
the day when all this will pay off and I have my own
career," she said.

May race strives to educate people about hospice


Last year's activities pulled in around $60,000. The 2003
regatta drew 76 vessels, the highest participation in the
event's history. Some 800 people came to the clambake,
Batzer said.
The Fort Lauderdale race belongs to the National
Hospice Regatta Alliance, a group that supports 20 regat-
tas across the country and hosts an annual national cham-
pionship. This year's championship was held in April in
Annapolis, Md., Batzer said.
"The first regatta was started 25 years ago in
Maryland," she said. "The Fort Lauderdale regatta is mod-
eled after that event."


Ownby says May is the perfect time of year to sched-
ule the race. "It's a comfortable time of year to sail," he
said. "It's not too windy and the race doesn't interfere with
other major regattas held during the winter months."
Holding the regatta and clambake has helped spread
more public awareness about the organization, Batzer said.
"A lot more people who may have never known what
hospice is are now learning about our services and using
them," Batzer said. "We have provided services to many
members of the local marine community and their fami-
lies, who have learned of us through the regatta."
For more information about the upcoming regatta
and clambake call 954-467-7423, or log on to

Little boats effective in getting into tight places


top. It was a bit of a struggle, harder than it would have
been without all the equipment in the way. We watched
with admiration, not to mention relief that we didn't have
to go overboard to help him.
Dick said he'd better do something about the way he
carries his fly rods. By the next time I saw him, he had
modified it to keep the butt ends and reels from extending
overboard. He had added a pulley system to let him drop
anchor at the bow to prevent spin around, found space for


a stakeout pole and installed a plastic milk crate for a
backrest and storage bin.
Dick's wife Karen has a little kayak too, and even
though they own a 15-foot outboard flats skiff they like
nothing-better than fishing together from their kayaks.
"Our younger daughter had one and she recommend-
ed these," Karen said. "I went and bought two, about three
years ago. You stay pretty dry, you really do, if you don't
go out in wet weather. Neither of us is really young, but
it's an effortless paddle."

MAY 2004your own boat carrier with bac


Constructing your own boat carrier with basic tools


tical posts about three feet long and a two crossbeams about
six feet long-in all, about 24 feet. That's more than neces-
sary, but it's good to have some leeway.
Off we go to the lumber store. Allow plenty of time. You
need straight wood, not bent or crooked, without splits or
cracks or open knotholes. You'll probably store the rack
indoors, so don't pay extra for pressure treated wood.
Cut two vertical posts, fasten them together with a cross-
beam at the top and brace the comers with triangles of ply-
wood or metal angles. Make the posts high enough so the
peak of your boat's bow won't bump the truck's roof. Hunt
gave his a 10-inch clearance, just in case he'll carry a canoe
with higher ends. If you'll only carry kayaks, a few inches of
clearance will do.
Next make an identical copy of the first rack. Place one
rack across the bed of the truck, just behind the cab, and the
other across the back end, sticking the vertical posts into the
stake pockets.
I'm not sure how important symmetry is, but I tried to
achieve it. The easy way is to measure from the cargo bed
rail to the tops of your vertical posts. All four should be the
same length. If they look uneven from ground level, it's


probably because you're parked on an uneven surface or the
tire pressures aren't equal.
Hunt butt-joined his vertical posts and crossbeams just
placed the ends of the legs against the wide sides of the beam
sand drove in screws. He cut triangles for comer braces from
plywood he had lying around. He said the joining are more
than strong enough, but I had doubts.
I'm no expert on fancy carpentry, so I thought up Kerf
Sawyer, well-known local woodworker. I wasn't sure he'd
remember me.
"Sure I do," Kerf said. "You're the guy who doesn't
know an eyebeam from an I-bolt, or is it the other way
around?"
I described the project and,asked Kerf if he thought
Hunt's way of attaching the crossbeams to the posts was ade-
quate. I was thinking about putting them together with rab-
bet joints, a simple cut-and-overlap that I could make with
my circular saw.
Kerf said butt-joining would do, as long as the comers
were firmly braced, although he is unabashedly fond of the
rabbet joint:
"I just love that fluffy tail and long ears, don't you? That
is sooo cute. Only it isn't any stronger than your friend's
method and you'll still need comer braces. If you want a


stronger joint that you can cut with a saw, do a dado."
A dado is a simple notch, cut across one piece of wood
for the insertion of another. To lay them out, I positioned the
crossbeams across the pickup bed, against the stake pockets,
and penciled cutmarks there. Then I used the circular saw to
cut halfway through the four-inch sides.
Next I pre-assembled the rig to see that everything fit as
well as I could get it, made a few adjustments and painted.
When the paint dried, I bonded strips of outdoor carpet
around the crossbeams with a strong spray adhesive.
That's where I am now. In a couple of days I'll drill pilot
holes from the crossbeams into the posts and drive a couple
of three-inch screws into each joint from the top down. Then,
up with the canoe.
I asked Dave Hunt what he would do differently if he
were to build another rack. Just one thing:
'The wood rack moves forward and back and makes a
squeaking noise when driving. If I were to do it again I
would make the wood smaller where it enters the holes of the
truck and bond a small strip of rubber- like from a bicycle
inner tube- to the wood to prevent the squeak."
To contact Kerf Sawyer consult your dictionary. A kerf
is a groove or notch cut by a tool A sawyer is someone
whose job is to saw wood.

Low and behold: Artist paints life on Green Turtle Cay


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Scotsman Gideon Lowe first landed on the shores of
Green Turtle Cay in September 1783. Since then generations
of Lowes have spent their lives on the tiny spit of land in the
northern Abacos. The family first dove for sponges and then
grew sisal, whose dense fibers were twisted into sturdy rope.
The Lowes also labored as carpenters, building many of the
ships that set sail from the docks of New Plymouth.
Throughout much of the 20th century, Albert Lowe's
large workman's hands fashioned splendid cabinets and
tables and engineered many of the region's village homes.
But Albert's true gift was building master model ships,
which were regularly presented to visiting dignitaries by
Bahamian officials.
While Lowe toiled away in his steamy workshop over
his drawings, his son, Alton, then 5, copied his father's draw-
ings. In the coming years, his artistic prowess rapidly blos-
somed.
Today, Alton Lowe is celebrated as the Bahamas' most
prominent and popular artist. If you've ever visited Green
Turtle Cay, it's likely you've been charmed by its secret
coves, pristine reefs and the pastel clapboard cottages with
white picket fences and stone walls reminiscent of a New
England fishing village.
Lowe, 62, paints sun-drenched landscapes, seacapes and
island scenes that depict the nuances of Bahamian life in
exquisite detail, amid a backdrop of vibrant colors.
Born and raised in New Plymouth, Lowe was discov-
ered at age 16 by Olga and John Baker, who were impressed
by his vivid art. The couple suggested he move to Miami to
work at their gallery and enroll in art school. Two years later
Lowe was studying classical drawing and painting at the
prestigious Frank Reilly School of Art in New York City. He
graduated in three years.
After extended sojourns to Canada and the south coast
of England sketching and painting, Lowe returned to the
tropics to exhibit at his first Nassau show in 1973. Held each
March at the Nassau Beach Hotel for the past 27 years,


Lowe's oil paintings of colorful Bahamian plants that heal
and provide nourishment set a soothing tone in this year's
one-man exhibition.
Though he maintains homes in Nassau and Miami,
Lowe continues to spend time on Green Turtle. He holds
court on a sunny late February afternoon seated in an antique
straight-back chair, expounding on Green Turtle's rich and
varied history, his family roots and his life as a painter.
A pleasant large man in his early 60s with red hair, Lowe
is dressed in casual island clothing and sneakers. He is con-
sidered an island historian and environmental preservationist.
He founded the Albert Lowe Museum in honor of his father
and was instrumental in establishing the Loyalist Memorial
Sculpture Garden. They sit directly across from each other on
Parliament Street.
How popular is Lowe? His vivid tropical paintings are
in demand for private collections and corporate boardrooms
around the world. They've appeared in numerous publica-
tions and are enjoyed by Prince Charles and several other
members of the Royal Family. In addition, a string of prime
ministers have received them as gifts of state. Eighty-five of
his paintings of Bahamian life, including flowers, conch
shells, lighthouses, regatta and historical scenes, have been
reproduced by the Bahamas government as official
Bahamas postage stamps. A Loyalist stamp commemorat-
ing the 200-year anniversary of the Loyalist landing is still
in circulation.
Five years ago Lowe opened a gallery adjacent to his
striking home. Visitors trek up a steep winding hill then
climb to the second floor gallery where there's a panoramic
view of the tranquil Black Sound on one side and the Sea of
Abaco on the other.
Lowe's home has been the site of exhibits as well as spe-
cial educational and cultural events over the past few years.
The surrounding grounds contain bougainvillea, banana

Bahamian life. Here is one of his paintings.
plants, hibiscus, flowering shrubs and trees as well as dozens
of tropical plants in full bloom. Off in a comer sits an open-
air stage, where each spring theater productions are held.
Accommodations: Green Turtle Club, think England in
the tropics. Cottages and villas boast mahogany furniture,
French inspired draperies, oak floors, terra cotta tiled patios
and wicker and rattan furniture. Dinner is also served in the
elegant dining room, just adjacent to the pub-style bar that
features a pre-dinner cocktail hour.
Restaurants in town include the Wrecking Tree, Laura's
Kitchen and Pineapples. The Blue Bee Bar is a landmark
watering hole, while the Rooster's Rest features live music
on weekends, though starting time can never be predicted.
Fronting the Harbor you'll find an art gallery and liquor store,
known as the "Drink 'n Draw." It boasts the best selection of
rums in the Out Islands.
The Lowe Gallery is located on the Black Sound a few
minutes outside the village of New Plymouth. For more

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. So ie 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.
