Donations sought to help Charley-ravaged marinas rebuild


MIASF starts drive for
west coast victims
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer-
Marine businesses in southwest Florida need help
quickly to recover from the impact of Hurricane Charley.
If there's a good side to the calamity, it's that members of
the Marine Industries Association of South Florida are ral-
lying around the victims, gathering truckloads of relief
supplies and hauling them across the state.
More than that, the effort includes a call for money
and muscle.
"We are looking to our association members and mem-
bers of the community to help donate the supplies, funds
and manpower necessary to help get these companies back
on their feet," said Helen Wozunk, membership develop-
ment coordinator for the MIASF in Fort Lauderdale.
The harm done on the lower Gulf coast was massive,
and boaters in South Florida know they were only an
atmospheric sidestep away from damage. Dry-stack boat
storage racks collapsed, floating vessels swamped, sunk,
were impaled on pilings or flung high ashore.
A damage list was in the early stages of being compiled
as of this writing. No one could predict a bottom line yet.
"We know for sure that two dry stack storage facilities
were destroyed completely," Wozunk said. "One is on the
Peace River and the other on Pine Island."
Land 'N' Sea Distributing, a marine products ware-
house near Lake Suzy, about seven miles upland from Port
Charlotte, was torn to pieces. The company, with locations
from Ontario, Michigan and Texas to the east coast, has


headquarters in Pompano Beach.
Requested supplies are now being collected at Billfish
Marina, 2955 State Road 84 in Fort Lauderdale.
Rebuilding entails a massive cleanup effort before busi-
nesses can attempt a comeback.
"They need gloves, jack stands to put boats up on,

Fashion to be addressed in Miami marine design conference


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Some of the biggest influences in boating design
could come from what we wear and what we drive when
representatives from the fashion and automotive indus-
tries meet with leading boat manufacturers at a confer-
ence this fall in Miami Beach.
The invitation-only session on Oct. 26 is being spon-
sored by Marine Design Resource Alliance, a group of
industry suppliers founded eight years ago.
One of the alliance's divisions is the Color Waves
program, which brings its members together annually to
discuss trends and research for color, styling and design
that relates to the marine industry.
The upcoming conference, called "The Business of
Color," will mark the first time the group is opening its
yearly gathering to nonmembers, said Paige Mullis, Color
Waves program director and product manager for
Sunbrella Marine Interior Fabrics in Glen Raven, NC.
The alliance meeting will be presented during the
International BoatBuilders' Exhibition & Conference,
also known as IBEX 2004, being held Oct. 25 to 27 at the
Miami Beach Convention Center.
Guest speakers at the Marine Design Resource
Alliance event will be Roxi Suger, president of Angelrox,
a fashion house in New York, and Christine Dickey, color


and trim manager for Toyota
USA.
Suger and Dickey will speak
before design teams from leading
boat manufacturers. "The discus-
sions will lead to talks that will
inspire future design at each of
these companies," Mullis said.
Talk at the conference will
revolve around everything from
cushion fabrics, to the coloring
and shapes of hulls, Mullis said.
Roxi Suger ofAngelrox "It will affect the options
available to the public and the way they can express their
personalities through their boats, just as they would in
their homes," she said.
Inviting Suger and Dickey will hopefully motivate
boat manufacturers to be more trend setting and cutting
edge, Mullis said.
"There's a high level of glamour associated with the
boating lifestyle," Mullis said. "We need to think more
about that when putting boats together as a selling tool."
Because fashion pervades all industries these days, it
should come as no surprise that its influence should
extend to boating, Suger said.
"I was very excited by the invitation to the confer-


ence, Suger said. "I know the yachting and boating
industry has traditionally been more conservative. But
when I get on a boat, I feel exotic and sensual. It makes
you feel sexy and alive. Everything on the boat should
reinforce the feelings of escape and luxury."

"I know the yachting and boating
industry has traditionally been
more conservative. But when I get
on a boat, I feel exotic and sensual.
Roxi Suger,
president of fashion house Angelrox

Suger said she will try to impress upon the alliance's
members that they should try to incorporate a fusion of
functionality, sensuality and elegance.
Boating can be influenced by a sense of fashion, from
more sensuous, aerodynamic curves to sophisticated
blends of colors. But the marine industry does not want to
be trendy, she said.
Instead, they should evoke a sense of timeless style.
"People want to be very stimulated by their environment
and they also want practicality," she said.

Travis McGee's F-18 dock to be rededicated Oct. 2


Fans revere fictional slip in
famed MacDonald mystery
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Sleuths might call it the Case of the Missing Plaque.
Fans of John D. MacDonald's mystery novels will no
longer have to wonder about the marker honoring one of the
author's most famous characters at the Radisson Bahia Mar
Beach Resort in Fort Lauderdale that had been removed two
years ago.
The plaque signifying where the fictional Travis McGee
docked his houseboat at the resort's marina will be re-dedi-
cated during a ceremony on Saturday Oct. 2.
The free program, at 10:30 a.m., is co-sponsored by the
Radisson Bahia Mar and the Florida Center for the Book.
Several Florida-based authors will speak and Fort
Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle will proclaim Oct. 2 as
Travis McGee Day. Authors scheduled to appear include
James W. Hall, Randy Wayne White, Les Standiford, James
Grippando, Jonathon King, and PJ Parrish.
A slip at the marina was originally dedicated in 1987,
one year after MacDonald's death. The plaque was removed
in 2002 while the 250-slip mega yacht facility underwent
extensive renovations, said Francis Purvey, director of sales
and marketing at the Radisson Bahia Mar Beach Resort.

The $17 million project was completed last year. It
included the installation of wider and uncluttered piers,
deeper channels, the capacity to pump up to 150 gallons of
fuel per minute and state-of-art amenities such as wireless
high speed Internet, cable television and direct dial phone
lines, Purvey said.
The rededication will hopefully generate new interest in
the author and Fort Lauderdale, he said.
The ceremony falls on the 40th anniversary of the pub-
lication of "The Deep Blue Good-By," the first book in the
Travis McGee series, said Tara Zimmermann, literary events
coordinator at the Florida Center for the Book
The center, housed at the Broward County Main Library
in downtown Fort Lauderdale, sponsors literary events and
seminars. "Our main purpose is to bring readers and writers
together," Zimmermann said.
In MacDonald's books, the fictional Slip F-18 at Bahia
Mar was where McGee's houseboat, the Busted Flush, was
berthed. The spot was named a Florida literary landmark by
Friends of Libraries USA, she said.
The reinstalled plaque will state:
"Dedicated to the Busted Flush Home of Travis McGee

Created by John D. MacDonald, Author
1916-1986
Designated a Literary Landmark
February 21, 1987."

Learning to secure your boat as hurricane season gets serious


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Once with a storm scarily near,
I had to beach an outboard motor-
boat and leave it there on the Gulf
coast, high and wet, for a few days.
I don't remember why I was at sea
in such weather. I do remember
what a clever way that was to solve
one problem and create another.
Beaching was a good idea, I
thought, because I read it some-
where. Arnold Markowitz
Now that the 2004 hurricane
season has gotten serious, it's a good time to give trailer boat
owners some better boat protection tips, not too obvious,
hopefully practical, to read so that after it's too late they'll
know what they should have done instead of what they did.
First, if you're out on the water, do not ground your boat
on a beach unless there's absolutely no other choice. My
excuse was that waves and wind were building fast, and I
was far from the marina where my car and trailer were
parked. Rather prudently for one so youthful and bold, I
decided not to risk a run for it against head seas.
That boat was a 15-foot Woodson cathedral hull with a
25 hp outboard a shallow draft hull, light enough to drag
well above the high-water line, close to a motel but not close
enough to solve the problem of driving across soft sand to
get the boat back on the trailer.
"Worry about that later," I told myself.
The motel owner helped me drag the boat upland and
bury two anchors, just in case of a surge at high tide. That
couldn't happen again. Nowadays the joint would be a high-
hat resort and a security guard would run at me screaming,.
"Private property! Go away!"
If you're smart enough to have your trailer boat at home
next time there's a bad storm, deadmen can protect it as the
bones and ghosts of deadmen guarded buried treasure in a
quaint, charming ritual of pirate days.

It worked like this: The pirate captain and a crewman
rowed ashore to bury a sea chest full of loot. Once the hole
was dug the captain murdered the crewman, buried him with
the chest and rowed back to the ship.
"Where is Snake-eye?" the other pirates asked. "He
bugged out," came the answer. "I was busy shoveling and
when I looked up, poof, he was gone."
"That stinker owed us money!" the others hollered.
"Serves you right," the captain said. "Never trust a
pirate."
We're not good at killing guys, so instead of true-to-life
deadmen, let's buy four large cement blocks. For each block
we need a length of extra-heavy-duty chain four or five feet
long, plus a repair link. We also want two hook-ended high-
strength truck towing straps, about five or six feet longer
than our trailers are wide.

Next time a big-time wind blows,
search frantically for the
chain ends and the straps.
Hook the straps to the chains
crosswise over the trailer, under the
hull, with as little slack as possible

Add a big squirt can of marine rust inhibitor. Overdose
the chains with that stuff, loop each chain through the mid-
dle of a cement block and fasten one end of the chain to
itself with a repair link. Now let's bury the blocks about a
foot underground, alongside the spots where we park our
trailers, with the chain ends protruding.
Those will be our deadmen one on each side near the
bow, the same next to the stem.
Next time a big-time wind blows, search frantically for
the chain ends and the straps. Hook the straps to the chains
crosswise over the trailer, under the hull, with as little slack
as possible.

Be sure the boat is winched up tight to the bow roller
and that the stem is strapped tight to the trailer. That will
hold a hefty boat firmly to the trailer. Our deadman project
is to hold the trailer firmly to the ground.
My rig's pretty stout, but if I switch to a lower, lighter
vessel I'll stretch those straps over the boat, not under it, to
better secure the whole package. I may let half the air out of
the trailer tires to lower the center of gravity and reduce side-
ways wobbling. If I do that, I'll get an electric inflator.
If you cover your boat, it's good to own a few ratchet-
ing tie-down straps to prevent the tarpaulin from billowing
or sailing. If you don't cover, make sure the scuppers are
open and clear of debris. A trailer boat parked near trees col-
lects seeds, leaves, acors, twigs, fronds and stuff, which
plug the drains.
If your boat is parked in a banyan"s copious shade,
move the boat or get rid of that tree. For all their majestic
beauty, banyans are trouble. Their root systems are so shal-
low that they're easily blown over. Other than that, the con-
sequences of those roots squirming under your slab-founda-
tion house are too awful to contemplate. Casuarina trees,
better known as Australian pines, are easily blown down too.
Avoid them too.
Here are a few other hurricane preparations that may
seem obvious but are often overlooked: Remove all remov-
able cushions. Look under the gunwales, where you may
have left a fishing rod in the rack. Be sure all hatch-cover
fasteners are closed, or strong wind may tear the lids off.
Stow the docklines, except the one used to bind the Bimini
top tightly to the hull. Are your antennae secure in their
hold-down clips?
Take care of your boat before the hurricane hits and
it will take care of you afterward: The insulated fish
boxes are good places to store extra blocks of ice and per-
ishable foods.

Proposed Biscayne Bay permit would help net funds


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
Would you mind buying an extra license just to fish in
Biscayne National Park, if that would get more rangers out
on the water to enforce the fishing regulations? No firm pre-
dictions yet, but it's on the serious list as a fishery manage-
ment plan for the park takes shape.
And would you support new restrictions on catching cer-
tain fish if it would prove to reverse a decades-long decline,
eventually transforming your catch from fewer fish.to more,
from smaller fish to bigger?
You might hope to banish commercial fishing in the
park but you can't, so how about a plan to monitor and
control the catch, to outlaw tackle that gouges bay bottoms
where marine life is nurtured and to restrict commercial per-
mit renewals?
A working group of private citizens, preparing the fish-
ery plan, believes you should and will go for all those and
other ideas now being prepared for public presentation.
Some of the ideas might even be yours, suggested at public
hearings in 2002 and '03 or in opinions you wrote to the
National Park Service.
Sometime in December or early next year, a round of
public hearings will give everyone another chance to turn
thumbs up or down for a variety of fishery propositions.
Some if not all will be included in a final management plan,
loosely scheduled for introduction next spring or early sum-
mer. That plan will govern fishing in Biscayne for the next
10 to 15 years.
The fishing permit is in the water now, like a baited
hook, because the park has to.catch some money to pay for
fishing improvements.
The biggest one? Law enforcement. About a jillion
times, fishermen have told the park and its partner, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, not to
impose new regulations unless they put enough rangers and
marine police on the water to enforce the new ones and the
under-enforced old ones.
A park fishing permit would raise the money to hire and
equip those people, and the Working Group (its formal title)
insists on dedicating that money entirely to enforcement.
"It would be a stamp on your state fishing license. It
would only cost a couple of dollars," said the chairman,
Ocean Reef boat dealer Jack Curlett.
The Working Group worked put most of a new draft

proposal in five monthly meetings from January through
May. It has another session probably the last sched-
uled for Oct. 6. Curlett said the plans drafted so far have
been accepted by the Florida Keys National Marine
Sanctuary's advisory council, which created the Working
Group for the park and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
Once the last recommendations are written, the park
staff will use them to make several detailed alternative plans,
including one preferred alternative. They will be presented at
a series of public comment sessions like those held last year.
Todd Kellison, the park's fishery chief, said revisions
will be made after the public comment deadline and a final
version of the management plan should be finished by next
spring or early summer.

How much money a park fishing
stamp can raise isn't clear,
because it isn't clear how many
people fish in the park.
How much money a park fishing stamp can raise isn't
clear, because it isn't clear how many people fish inthe park.
The best information the park staff has is from a mid-1990s
survey that Kellison said was extensive, and showed that one-
third of park visitors did some recreational fishing.
One-third of how many visitors? Not so easy.
"Recent annual estimates for total visitation have been
500,000, which would put estimates of numbers of recre-
ational fishers at 165,000. This would be an obvious under-
estimate, since many people certainly enter the park from
marinas north of Matheson Hammock and south of
Homestead Bayfront', Kellison said.
Matheson, Homestead and Black Point are public mari-
nas whose channels go directly into the park. Other large
marinas at Crandon Park and Dinner Key are at the park's
doorstep, as are several private docking and boat storage
facilities, yacht clubs and the Coral Gables Waterway where
virtually every house on either side has a dock and at least
one boat. Miami, Miami Beach and Key Largo harbor many

other boats just outside the park boundaries.
Possibly the hardest Working Group proposition to put
into effect is one that recommends monitoring 13 game and
food fish species by biological sampling and dockside sur-
veys, and using the information to devise new catch restric-
tions and management regulations.
It may be possible to do a better job of monitoring the
commercial catch the state's unreliable reporting system
has been improved by the inclusion of specific zones in the
park, for example. and there are only a couple of dozen or so
commercial fishers operating there.
If there's a surprise in the works, it's that the six com-
mercial fishers in the 26-member Working Group support
the proposed regulations.
With or without the support of sport fishers, tracking the
recreational catch would be much harder. "Perhaps not pos-
sible," said Kellison.
Even though scientists go in the water to count fish in
person, they can only over so much territory and the data they
gather are unsatisfyingly imprecise as foundations for fishing
regulations. Fish, after all, are hard to follow. They move
around at will, migrate long distances and devour each other.
Humans do too, but at least we are documented by fin-
gerprints, driver licenses and Social Security numbers and
'yet the U.S. Census miscounts and omits many thousands of
us every 10 years.
Despite the lack of precise data, it is well documented
that over time there's been.a decline in Biscayne National
Park's fishing. When it was begun as a national monument
in 1968, fishermen had hardly any size or catch limits to
worry about. In the 36 years since then, Florida has imposed
limits for virtually every species, with closed seasons for
snook, and yet most analysts are convinced that fish num-
bers and sizes whatever the numbers really are have
declined consistently.
The Working, Group raised the point that uncertain
information makes it extra hard to set firm goals for recov-
ery of species that can't realistically be lumped together. If
it isn't known how much populations and sizes are dimin-
ishing, how can you say what the catch limits should be for
any species to recover to a desirable level?
"We want to do our own studies, establish a base line
and work from there," chairman Curlett said. However desir-
able that is, it might require a lot bigger share of the National
Park Service budget than anyone now has in mind for
Biscayne.
"Funding could certainly be an issue here," Todd
Kellison agreed. "Yes, a very probable funding problem."

Forensic studies

and CSI marine

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Judging by today's television pro-
grams, it would appear that the American
public is most, interested in seeing if.
wealthy people can learn to live in rural
environments or rural inhabitants can
learn to live like urban millionaires.
Now, if that really is true, I hope I'm
not being too controversial by letting the
world know that I could care less if Paris
Hiltorf ever milks a cow or, for that mat-
ter, whether young Amish adults ever drive
a Porsche.
However, over the past few years that
group of shows popularly listed under the
heading CSI have caught my interest.
Though the term refers to Crime
Scene Investigations, much of the subject
matter of these shows deal with general
forensic studies (i.e. investigations of a
legal nature, whether it is criminal
or civil).
Admittedly, these shows contain some
blatant exaggerations. Everyone has access
to the latest scientific equipment along
with unlimited funds to utilize and main-
tain them. Every department has the inex-
haustible highly skilled manpower neces-
sary to review evidence and reach closure
in days rather than in months or years.
In spite of this, these programs can
prove rather informative. Not so much
because of the "gee whiz" science, but
because they help one review the impor-
tant elements of the scientific method
which should be used in legal (or legal-
style) inquiries. The public that watches
these shows should be better prepared to
enter into a forensic mindset if a litiga-
tion-causing incident suddenly comes
into their lives;
In fact, for incidents of a maritime
nature, getting into the forensic mindset is
probably more important than most people


think. After all, whether you are a passen-
ger, crewman, master, or owner, the water
remains an intrinsically dangerous- envi-
ronment, prone to situations that can lead
to legal inquiry and litigation.
It is advisable that anyone going to sea
should prepare to become an amateur
forensic researcher.just in case you ever
wind up in a legal situation.
How to prepare? Well, it begins with
keeping in mind that if an incident happens
while on board a vessel (whether a colli-
sion, a personal injury, or even a ground-
ing) you should within reason take on the
demeanor of a researcher, just like one of
the scholarly types on a CSI show.
This means that along with contacting
the proper authorities if required, you
should keep a cool head and begin to
observe your surroundings. Among your
observations should be the following:
*Time, date and place of the incident.
*Where you are, where you have been,
what you were doing, what you heard, and
the clothes and shoes you are wearing.
Also, take notice of these things on those
around you as well.
*The vessel: its name, official num-
bers, the layout and design of the decks,
type of engine or power, and the loca-
tion of any crew or passengers at the
time of the incident. Also, be aware if
any possible problems with the vessel
were mentioned or noticeable preceding
any incident.
*If there is a crew, get their names and
available information. Take note of their
actions just before, during, and after any
incident.
*If another vessel is part of the inci-
dent, notice the things mentioned above:
Taking notes can also be helpful. But
be aware that contemporaneous notes can

Boater serving sentence for
To the Editor:
I'm currently serving a lengthy sen-
tence for B.U.I. (Boating Under the
Influence) manslaughter.
I want to get the message out to all
boaters how dangerous it is to drink alco-
hol while boating. A friend of mine died
as a result and two other friends and I
were seriously injured.
It seems a lot of people think the
same way I once did, before I lost a
good friend and my freedom. People
know enough not to drink and drive a
car, but a boat! Come on, what can it
hurt? We think, "I'm out in my boat to
have fun."
These people are just asking for
something bad to happen. The worst part

of it is, they will probably hurt or kill
someone else.
This is why I.have started a program
called Boaters Against Drunk Boating.
My goal with this program is to turn a
tragic event in my life into something-
good. I don't want what happened to me
to happen to anyone else.
I hope my coming to you with this
information will open your eyes and help
save lives.

Clear observations

without conclusions

can aid in suits


sometimes be considered proper evidence in a legal case,
which, depending, can work either for or against your inter-
ests.
If note-taking, do it with as much accuracy and as little
spin as possible. The idea is to keep to good observations
and leave the conclusions to a later time, if at all. Reaching
conclusions is what litigation is for.
Hopefully, if an incident ever occurs while you're on a
vessel, this list of observations might prove useful. Some
may seem clear-cut, but many people forget the obvious dur-
ing times of adversity.
That's what makes the difference between us common
folk and TV characters they never forget that small stuff.
Unless the character is Paris Hilton. But, do you really want
to milk a cow?
So be careful, and stay observant.

Captain labors to restore classic Burger he salvaged from the sea


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Capt. Michael Waserberg realizes that time may be
running out to restore his beloved classic boat.
He's already invested thousands of dollars and more
than 23 years on the project. He's put in countless hours
of labor and solicited the salvage skills of dozens of his
buddies, keeping to his commitment even while spending
the last five years battling cancer.
"I'm doing it because somebody has to save boats like
this one," he said of the slow-moving restoration that is
not yet half finished and has no timetable.
Waserberg, 61, is hoping to give neW life to a 65-foot,
1960-built Burger 87-B yacht, one of only four built in its
class 44 years ago. The other three were restored private-
ly years ago and are now valued at over $3.5 million each,
he said.
"Most boats this old never get saved. They are used
for salvage or sunk somewhere."
But he believes that the high quality boat-building
reputation of the Burger Yacht Corp. makes his 'craft
worth saving. Not to mention the history linked to the
yacht, which has traveled to ports of call all around the
world.
Waserberg first found his boat in 1981.
"It was sinking off the coast of Turnbery Isle near
Aventura," he said, explaining that the boat had been
abandoned in the ocean after being used for drug smug-
gling between the U.S. and South America. Since U.S.
governmental officials had given up trying to save it at
sea, Waserberg a licensed salvage operator took on the
task and, in doing so, laid claim to the boat.
"This was the first time that I know of that a boat used
in international drug smuggling was privately captured
rather than being first taken over by the government,
which usually then auctions off such vessels to private
owners," said Waserberg who turned over drugs found on
the salvaged boat to U.S. officials.
To dig into the boat's history, the captain spent over
10,000 hours chasing down its title background. It was
built in 1960 in Wisconsin by the Burger Yacht Corp.,
which was founded in 1860 and is still one of the oldest

U.S. boat builders, known for settling the standard and
new design styles for luxury yachts.
"This is an all-metal boat except for the mahogany
wood used in the cabin area," he said.
The boat was originally built for a Chicago business-
man but was sold in the 1970s to two brothers in
Venezuela. It was then passed along to a man in
Connecticut, who allegedly used it for drug smuggling.
The boat visited ports of call in South and Central
America, Mexico, the Caribbean islands and U.S. ports
north to New York.

'Most boats this old
never get saved.
They are used for salvage
or sunk somewhere.'

Capt. Michael Waserberg

Waserberg, who is an ex-U.S. Marine, has enlisted
the aid of about 50 fellow veterans in his restoration
effort. Large sections of the metal hull must be replaced
along with rebuilding the housing area. The boat has
been dry docked at. three different marinas. It is cur-
rently at the New River Marina off State Route 84 in
Fort Lauderdale.
For five years, while Waserberg was being treated for
cancer, the restoration was on hold. However, work
resumed in the last year and the captain continues to
secure donated supplies, labor and other resources in his
quest to move the project forward.
Waserberg, who describes himself as a risk taker and
free-spirited hippie left over from the 1960s, said he might
never be around to see his project finished.
"It may not be done until 2096," he joked. "But the
boat is a classic and a noble antique worth saving."

Religion by the sea: Waterfront offers spiritual backdrop
By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS .. .
Waterfront News Writer
This is one in a series of special features looking at
landmarks along South Florida's waterways. This .


months feature explores places of worshilp on the water. -ED~IR -spr~ u~r -


Every so often, Rev. Tita Calzada walks outside her
Victoria Park church into the Meditation and Memorial
Garden along the Middle River to enrich her own spirituality.
"Water has a very calming affect on people," said Rev.
Calzada of Unity Church of Fort Lauderdale, 1800 NE
Sixth Court, which created its waterfront meditation spot to
give church members and neighborhood residents a special
place to reflect on their lives.
The garden is located adjacent to the church, which has
a prime waterfront spot along the Middle River and is one of
a dozen religious establishments located on or near Broward
County's oceanfront.
Among them: the non-denominational Church by the
Sea near Port Everglades in Harbor Beach, the Jewish
Chabad Lubavitch along Galt Ocean Mile, St. Gabriel
Catholic Church in Pompano Beach, Second Presbyterian
Church in Fort Lauderdale, which has the Middle River in
its backyard, and the Community Presbyterian Church in
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.
All have found positive aspects to being near the ocean.
"It can renew the spirit." Calzada said.
Unity, established in 1951 and located on its riverfront
spot since 1964, created the Meditation Garden 12 years ago
to create a quiet and natural setting.
If people "are seeking wisdom or imagination or love or
understanding, there is a place for them," Calzada said. The
garden wasdedicated several years ago to the late Lucy
Hartman, who played piano at Unity services for many years
and also enjoyed the garden setting.
The area is popular for weddings, with some brides
even arriving by boat for the service. "I keep thinking we
should build a dock so people who want to come to church
by boat could do so," she said.
Water has always played a part in history of Fort

Gina Sosa, director of operations at Unity Church of
Fort Lauderdale, spends a quiet moment in the church's
waterfront Meditation Garden.

Lauderdale's Church By The Sea, according to the Rev.
Liden DeBrie, its pastor.
"The church at 2700 Mayan Drive, was founded on the
water when its early members began holding Sunday meet-
ings on the Jungle Queen 52 years ago," he said.
In 1956, the group obtained land on Myan Drive
along an inlet off the Intracoastal. This year the church is
celebrating its 50th anniversary and takes pride in its link
to water.
"If you look up at the ceiling of our sanctuary, you'll
see the wood and craftsmanship reflects the inside of a
boat," DeBrie said. He also pointed out that the logo of the
church shows Jesus walking on water. The first offerings
were collected using old fishing nets, which are still used
at times today.
The church has 350 members, many with boats who
live on the water. Many of them gather each Easter when the

sunrise service is held at the water's edge.
Easter service at Community Presbyterian Church,
4433 Bougainvilla Drive in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, is held
only a block away on the sands of the Atlantic Ocean.
"Fifty-two years ago we helped establish a community
wide sunrise service because we were the closest to the
water," said the Rev. Norman Dalton, pastor of the church.
He said more than 3,000 people now attend that service
annually, making it the largest event in the community.
Dalton said many of his church's 200 members are
boaters and leaders in the local Coast Guard Auxiliary.
"I live on the water myself and I know how much a part
of our lives it plays," he said.
Water plays a vital part of spirituality at Chabad
Lubavitch, 3500 N. Ocean Drive on Fort Lauderdale's Gait
Ocean Mile, said Rabbi Moshe Lipszyc, who founded the
temple 14 years ago.
"We can't live without water in our spiritual lives."
When a temple member opens a new restaurant or food-
related business, its utensils are all taken to the ocean and
submerged. "We just walk across the street and do it," he
said, explaining how Jewish tradition calls for the blessing
of the utensils to purify them.
During Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year in mid-
September, the tradition of "Tashlich" is observed. This is
when temple members walk to the ocean for a special prayer
service to wash away sins. "We can walk across the street
and hold the service," he said.
The back door of the Second Presbyterian Church, 1400
N. Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale overlooks the
Middle River. Rev. Roger Veise says the riverfront is used
for special services, like sunrise on Easter Sunday, several
times a year.
In Pompano Beach, St. Gabriel Catholic Church, 731- N.
Ocean Blvd., faces the Atlantic Ocean. In season, parish-
ioners who live on the water fill the church.

Today's modern gasoline has neither the

treatment specifically designed to make
today's gasoline burn more completely for
maximum performance, efficiency and
reliability. Since PRI-G prevents gasoline
from forming fuel system and engine deposits and has also
proven to restore old gasoline to like-new condition. One ounce
will treat 16 gallons of fuel.

Remote Tangier Island dubbed 'Soft Shell Crab Capital'


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
The name Tangier Island might conjure up images of
an exotic destination. In realty, it's located just south of
the Virginia/Maryland border, an unspoiled fishing vil-
lage with quaint narrow streets, long-legged heron and
stilted crab shanties. Irrevocably linked to the Chesapeake
Bay, the tiny island is called the "Soft Shell Crab Capital
of the World."
Many of the 650 residents on Tangier are related, a sit-
uation probably due to being isolated over the centuries
from the mainland. Nearly a third share the surname
Crockett descendants of fisherman John Crockett from
Cornwall, England, who settled the island with his eight
sons in 1686.
Tangier is one of the Chesapeake's two true islands (not
a peninsula and not connected to the mainland by a cause-
way.) There's a significant permanent population. Natives
speak with a lingering trace of an Elizabethan accent. Their
voices have a pleasant lilt, a singsong fluidity akin to the
waves that lap the island's shores.
Tour boats transport visitors from Reedville and
Onancock, Va., as well as Crisfield, Md., the closest mainland
town with a 45-minute ride. Moderate draft vessels (six feet
or less) should have no trouble visiting Tangier from either the
Tangier Sound or bayside entrances. Vessels drawing more
than six feet should probably use the bayside entrance.

The boating life
As your boat draws closer, the island takes shape: a
jagged outline of trees emerges, a water tower and the white
steeple of the Swain Methodist Church built in 1899.
A tight-knit community, Tangier residents' faith has
been tested in countless storms and the trials of isolation.
Many of the watermen are lay preachers and Sunday-
school teachers.
There are few cars and trucks on the three-mile-long
island. The terrain is flat, with 80 percent of it covered with
marsh, wetlands and water.


U .in


Residents are clustered in three communities called
"ridges:' linked by roads that are little more than paths.
Small footbridges let folks transverse the marshy land and
provide a chance for children to net the elusive blue crab.
Residents and tourists pilot golf carts on narrow lanes lined
with simple clapboard homes.
Tangier is a culture built on the water with just about
everyone owning a boat. An estimated 90 percent of the
male population is employed directly or indirectly by the
crabbing business. On countless piers, crab traps are rigged
for setting in the bay. Offshore waters team with sea trout,
drum, bluefish, croaker, flounder and striped bass.


-" F a There's few cars and
Struck but many soft
shell crabs available
on the three-mile long
at Tangier Island. Most
of the 650 residents
own a boat.






-.

Dining spots
At Fisherman's Comer Restaurant, visitors savor the hot
crab dip or feast on a medley of bay seafood from seafood
bisque to scrumptious Chesapeake Bay crab cakes. Tangier
watermen make a beeline to Waterfront Restaurant's for
tasty soft shell crabs, assorted sandwiches and quick fare.
The Waterfront is the only eatery on the water.
Dinner is served family style at Hilda Crockett's
Chesapeake House where selections include crab cakes,
clam fritters, potato salad, coleslaw, corn pudding, fresh
rolls, iced-tea and pound cake. If you leave hungry, that's on
you. Their B&B is two clapboard cottages that sit adjacent
to each other, offering guests a reflection on the past, yet has

Tangier is one of the SEPTEMBER 2004

Tangier is one of the Chesapeake's two true islands


all the comforts of today.
Established in 1904 by local merchant
Sidney Wallace, Shirley's Bay View Inn is
one of the island's oldest homes. It's cen-
trally located to nearby gift shops selling
everything from indigenous shells hand-
ed-painted with island scenes and dan-
gling pieces of water-colored beach glass
to homespun booklets of old Tangier fam-
ily stories.
Check out the paintings of local artist
Willie Crockett that hang in the Tangier


gallery. Nationally recognized, Crockett's
works are some of the most honest por-
trayals of the Chesapeake Bay's drama
and beauty.
