After hurricane havoc, boaters get ready to go on parade


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
It's been a tough hurricane season, when scenes of
boarding up homes, buying supplies, waiting in line for
gasoline, dealing with power outages and moving boats up
river replayed over and over again.
So what do we do now other than heave a big sigh of
relief, rebuild and move on?
Folks at the Marine Industries Association of Palm
Beach County; organizers of the 2004 Holiday Boat Parade
of the Palm Beaches, say it's time to party.
They have given this year's procession the theme
"Survivors of the Storms."
"We're celebrating the end of the hurricane season and
encouraging folks to use their newly acquired generators to
light their boats, instead of heiu homes," said Margie
Yansura, public relations counsel for the association. "It will
be a night of fun and celebration that the hurricane season is
gone, at least for another year."
The parade, taking place Saturday, Dec. 4, will feature
National Hurricane Center director Max Mayfield as grand
marshal. As a salute to boaters who suffered losses during
the storms, entry fees have been waived.
"We decided it's been a tough year for everyone,"
Yansura said. "We want to welcome everyone to join in."
The event is expected to draw roughly 50 participating
vessels, some of which will come from Martin and St. Lucie
counties, where the annual floating holiday processions
have been canceled due to hurricane-related debris in the
channel, Yansura said.
"We are expecting that some of those boaters will come
south and join us."
The association has gotten a good reaction to its storm-
related theme. "It's a light-hearted approach," Yansura said.
"We've all been through something very difficult, so let's
have a good time together."
The Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach
County, along with the City of Boca Raton, is also organiz-

to the summer's devastating
hurricane season.


ing the Boca Raton Holiday Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec.
11. Both the Boca Raton and Palm Beaches parades will
have fireworks displays.
Pyrotechnics will also signal the start of the annual
Winterfest Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec. 18.
Vessels in the "Rock 'n' Roll FantaSea" theme proces-
sion will feature salsa dancers, circus acts, an octopus's gar-
den, giant projection screens and a charter yacht that blows
bubbles. Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal will serve as grand mar-
shal, said Kathy Keleher, marketing and parade director for
Winterfest.
Some 100 boats are scheduled to participate. Several
will be late entries.
"Because of the hurricanes that struck South Florida, no
one wanted to put in their applications early because they
didn't know if they would have a boat after the storms,"
Keleher said.
Many of the same boats participating in Winterfest


will be seen in the Pompano Beach Holiday Boat Parade
on Dec. 19.
"We get a lot of spillover from Winterfest and that's
fine," said Stacey Peterson, marketing director and special
events coordinator with the Greater Pompano Beach
Chamber of Commerce, organizer of the procession.
Forty boats were in the 2003 parade. Fifty are expected
this year, she said.
"We don't expect a decrease in entries due to hurricane-
related damages," Peterson said. "We found in our general
area, people were not as badly affected by the storms as
those who live north."

Marine leaders ponder a regional approach to handling issues


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Writer
Marine industry leaders have praised the idea of a
regional coalition to deal with issues affecting the marine
business climate and recreational boating in South Florida
as. a whole.
The idea: What happens in one city or community
affects others.
Discussion on the topic took place at the Sixth Annual
Marine Summit held in late October, sponsored by the
Marine Industries Association of South Florida (MIASF).
"People get too hung up on border lines," said
Broward County Mayor Ilene Lieberman. "We need to
come up with creative new approaches as part of a region-
al presence for the marine industry serving all of South
Florida."
With so many jobs dependent on boating and billions
of dollars from boating impacting South Florida's cities,
the MIASF believes creating a stronger regional coalition
will benefit Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and other
counties. Representatives from all attended the summit.
Frank Herhold, MIASF executive director, said the
summer's devastating hurricanes showed the need for
more regional cooperation. Marine business suffered more
than $650 million in damages.
"When Hurricane Andrew hit Dade County, it was a

local issue since the storm impacted a specific area," said
Dick Bunnell of the Bunnell Foundation of Miami.
Bunnell has been a leader in helping damaged marinas
rebuild after major storms.
"It took three years to see some Dade marinas rebuilt
after Andrew," he said. "Rut now we have to look at the
regional impact this year's storms have had and how the
marineindustry can recover with new building codes that
weren't in effect after Andrew."
A stronger coalition would give boating a louder
-voice in the Florida State Legislature and other political
arenas, marine officials said.
Phil Everingham of the Miami-Dade Marine Council
said the City of Miami has been slow in backing marine
master plans.
"We are now starting to collect data to show the eco-
nomic impact we have on Dade County and that may
help."'
Everingham said Dade has a "critical shortage" of
boat ramps for public use, but is moving forward on a
major two-year project to dredge the Miami River. He said
the effort to increase the water's depth to at least 15 feet
would allow for more traffic and business expansion.
While boat ramps, also are in short supply in Palm
Beach County, the top priority is to promote stronger gov-
ernmental efforts to establish better waterfront access.
"If we keep losing boat yards, we lose jobs and the


ability to service boats of all size," said John Sprague of
the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach. He also
said recent hurricanes showed that action needs to be
taken to make waterways just as high a priority for clear-
ing as roadways.
In Broward, waterfront marina sites are being turned
into condo developments, with public boating slips
becoming private ones, Herhold said." Fewer slips mean a
lesser economic impact for the area."
Finding an affordable place to dock a boat is the top
concern of local boaters, according to a recent MIASF
boating survey. Respondents also asked for more boat
ramps and trailer parking areas.
The report calls on the county to create a "Working
Waterfront Preservation Program" to protect and promote
marinas and boat storage facilities as well as creating
more county parkland for recreational boating facilities
and ramps.
"It's a growing challenge to maintain the strong eco-
nomic impact that the marine industry has on the area, but
we can look at things in a different way and try new
opportunities," said Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle,
For example: dredging the Dania Cut-off Canal to
allow mega-yachts to use the waterway, which the mayor

suggested could even be re-named the Dania River.
Susan Engle, chair of the MIASF's Marine Master
Plan Committee, said the development of the Broward
master plan a few years ago is now at a point where a
"regional perspective" is needed. The plan looks at a wide
variety of factors impacting the economic future of the
marine industry.

Free bilge socks hoped
By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer 3
Next time you're at a marina where many motorboats
are docked, take a walk along the piers to see what else is in
the water. Look for a shiny film on the surface around
engines and bilge pump outlets. That's evidence of a gas or
oil leak, maybe not bad enough to call it a fire hazard, but
likely bad enough for longterm environmental poisoning.
If it's a Miami-Dade County public, marina, and your
boat's docked there, you can go to the dockmaster's office '
and ask about the free bilge socks being distributed by
Florida SeaGrant. They're in yellow plastic bags, include an
absorbent pad for mopping up oil and fuel spills on deck, a
clean boating booklet, a sticker to brag about your cleanliness
and a pledge card that you sign to make yourself feel guilty
in case you don't follow through.
"Marinas will distribute these kits to their wet slip occu-
pants', said Marella Crane, SeaGrant's representative in
Miami. 'This is a one-time free gift, with the idea that boaters

at marinas. Boats kept in wet slips are
the most vulnerable violators, so the
giveaway is intended for them, but they
are also useful in the bilges of trailer
boats. When a bilge sock absorbs its

it takes on a somewhat disgusting
appearance but dries fast and is easy
to dispose of. Boaters are expected to
be so delighted with the free ones that

consumed by wading birds and fish.
Crane doesn't know of any scientific data reporting how
much petroleum contaminant dribbles into marina waters
and bay bottoms from docked boats. It would be useful to test
a few marinas for that, and to repeat the test periodically after
a significant portion of the boats are equipped with bilge
socks, to see how effective they are.
That isn't necessary to detect the problem. It's easy to
see just by walking along the docks, and bilge socks are
cheap, convenient devices for controlling if not eliminating it.
Because wet-slipped power boats are large, have com-
plex fuel and lube systems and are always in the water, they
are the boats most likely to drip petroleum wastes into mari-
nas. That's also why the giveaway promotion is concentrated
at the slips, not the small-boat launching ramps.
Potter said a trailer boat's comparative simplicity -
with all the petroleum products contained in a small space,
like an outboard engine makes a leak less likely.
That doesn't mean smaller boats are exempt from the
problem. They can leak too, just not as much.
If a boat is kept on a trailer or suspended on davits, the
owner might never notice a small drip, but there are ways to

'Highwater heaven' on Lake O. a godsend to two fisherman


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Writer
You know how it goes: You
want to go bass fishing in the
Everglades but there was a hurri-
cane last week and today it's raining
almost that hard and it will rain
again tomorrow, and then it will
pour more. You consider going any-
way, but there's just enough light-
ning dancing around to take the fun
out of getting soaked.
At last, the weather clears. Off Arnold Markowitz
you dash to your favorite launching ramp and wow, there's
nobody else there. All the fish are yours.
Then sunrise shows you why you're so alone: High
water's overflowing the levee, and on the other side, it
looks like you could plane a V-hull across the flats. You
can't, but that's where the bass are, spread out maybe one
or two per mile.
Last time, the water was so low up there you could have
waded and only needed to towel off the soles of your feet.
That time, the bass were scrunched together, pectoral to pec-
toral in your favorite fish-in-a-barrel canal, ready to fight over
any bait you dropped in the water.
Not this time, Bubba. You'll have to search for every
fish, work for every strike and probably go home smelling
like something other than fish.
Then again, you could be fishing on Lake Okeechobee.
The drive isn't very long from Miami-Dade County, just
about long enough to justify staying overnight and making it
a two-day trip.
Best reason? It's highwater heaven up there.
The water's even higher than it is down here. The bass
spread out there, too, but you can find them and catch plenty
without searching very hard:
To our delight and surprise, Joe Oglesby and I learned
that in late October, when the lake was an extraordinary 17-
and-a- half feet above sea level with water still pouring in long
after hurricane Jeanne went out of business. It was five feet
higher than during our last trip in May, but finding where the
fish were was easy compared to finding out where we were.
We went through the lock at Lakeport, on the western
rim, and hardly recognized the lake. There were new open-
ings in the vegetation. Some led us someplace, others


noplace. Old openings had been clogged or concealed by tus-
socks masses of floating growth that look like islands but
move around in a strong wind. Formerly open-water areas
were thick with dense mats of watergrass that seemed to leap
out and grab the propeller of Joe's outboard.
On earlier trips, we had learned an easy shortcut to
Monkey Box, an area where we usually start fishing. Now we
couldn't find it.
'Eve\thung's been rearranged," Joe said, mystified.
Yes. It was like coming home in the dark and tripping
over furniture that wasn't there that morning.
And yet we found fish pretty easily and caught them on
lures that usually work for us close to home. On ajust-previ-
ous Everglades trip, also on high water, we had been skunked
- a humiliating rarity.
Did someone tip those swamp bass off that we were
coming? Did they hide from us?
Imagine The Godfish mumbling to the underbass: "Dat
Miami mob's after us. We gotta go to da mattresses."
I like that idea but I doubt it, so I asked two bass experts
for a better explanation. Bob Miley of Homestead is a tour-
nament pro who fishes a lot in both the Everglades and the
big lake, and Brent Propst of Port St. Lucie is a firefighter
who also fishes in bass tournaments and covers the lake
authoritatively for the website Probass.net and for newspa-
pers in Stuart and Fort Pierce.
Miley reminded me first that when water's high in the
Everglades, big bass leave the light cover of spatterdock -
those notched floating leaves with yellow flowers at the
edge of open canal water and move close to the sawgrassy
banks, where there isn't much space when water's low. As
the water continues to rise, the fish are able to get onto the
flats where it was too shallow and too warm for them before
the rainy season began in late spring.
We can follow them up there, using marked airboat
trails, if we raise a pole 10 feet above the waterline with an
orange flag at the top. That's to tip off airboaters that we're
on the trail, so if they run over us we can prove it was their
fault. It's a good regulation, but the flagpole gets in the way
of my backcast. Another downside is that the trails are so nar-
row, it takes good boat-handling skills just to turn around

Up close
For bass fishers in Broward and Miami-Dade coun-
ties, Everglades fishing is close to home and usually
good, sometimes great. From the 1-95 interchange at Ives
Dairy Road, near the county line, it takes less than an hour
to drive to Everglades Holiday Park at the west end of
Griffin Road in Broward. Going to Sawgrass Recreation
Area along Route 27 takes a fe\ minutes more. It's less
than an hour and a half to good launching ramps on
Alligator Alley.
.Lake Okeechobee fishing is much easier when
Everglades water gets so high that launching ramps are
almost fully submerged, and the lake is not as far away as
it seems. From the same starting point, it's a 116-mile
drive to Lakeport. Yahoo!'s Intemet map site says it takes
two hours and 47 minutes, but by leaving before or after
rush hour you can make it in much less time. Clewiston,
the biggest town on the lake, is only 78 miles away and a
faster drive than the advertised two hours and 15 minutes.
From most of Palm Beach County, distances to the
lake are much shorter.
Lake Okeechobee bass expert Brent Propst is avail-
able sometimes for guided fishing. Phone 772-370-4115.
Bob Miley does not guide.

when you're ready to leave.
Miley doesn't think the fish are hiding from us there.
They're just taking advantage of the access that high water
gives them to places and prey that they haven't been
able to visit for several months.
"It's not that they're impossible to catch," Miley said.
"It's that not too many bass fisherman are familiar with the
Everglades. It takes a lot of effort to get to the bass. You have
to be more careful when fishing in the Everglades, but that
should not discourage you from having a great fishing trip."
Just as high water makes finding bass hard in the
Everglades, the same thing makes it easy on Lake
Okeechobee. The shallows flood there too, but they flood so
deep you can often run right over them like open water, with-
out grinding up bottom muck or snagging your prop in grass.
"A bass fisherman can get his bass boat into almost every
section of the lake when water is high, without worrying
about getting lost or tearing up his boat," Miley said.
He's right. In the spring, we had to leave the Lakeport
Lock channel at idle speed and crawl for a mile or so before

Understanding

Santa the sailor

By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
The local maritime community tries
hard to show a nexus between the festive
holiday season and their water-focused.
world. This includes such questionable
slants on the holidays as posters of tropical
fish swimming around Christmas trees and
cards that contain peppermint-colored
flamingos and boats.
However, what few people realize is
that there actually is a real tie between nau-
tical and modem seasonal traditions in
the form of Santa Claus himself.
That's right, jolly old St. Nicholas is in
fact the patron saint of not only children,
but pawnbrokers, wayward women, con-
demned criminals, and last but not least, the
protector of mariners.
This oddly versatile selection of
patronage for St. Nick makes more sense
once you delve into the legends.
Apparently, St. Nicholas, who is said
to have existed in the early fourth century,
came from an extremely wealthy family,
and was orphaned at an early age. Rather
than use his wealth for selfish purposes, the
young Nicholas chose to dedicate a large
portion of his riches to as you might
have already guessed the needs of poor
children. But his good deeds, and philan-
thropy of course, went much further or that
would be the end of the story.
As legend goes, a merchant in
Nicholas's hometown went bankrupt, and
since this meant that his three daughters
would have no dowry, the merchant intend-
ed to send his children away to the local
brothel not an unusual way of dealing
with such matters in those times.
Hearing of this, Nicholas secretly
entered the house and left a bag (some say
a sock) of gold for each of the three daugh-
ters so all would have a dowry.


I WA TE RF R0 NT i- N W I. 0


That's how Santa Claus became the
protector of wayward women (as well as
the secret distributor of presents).
In the retelling of the story, the bags
evolved into three gold balls, which
became a metaphor for a trade that bettered
the trader, Today we call them pawnbro-
kers.
And, as you might guess, Nicholas
was supposedly a tireless advocate for
those wrongfully accused of capital crimes.
So, where do the sailors come in?
Well, one day Nicholas decided to anony-
mously board a ship so he could make a
pilgrimage to Jerusalem. While the ship
was at sea, a storm ensued. It was said that
through faith and prayer, Nicholas not only
quelled the storm, but also healed a seaman
who was near death after falling from the
ship's mast during the storm. These feats
made St. Nick very popular with mariners.
So popular, in fact, that mariners began
to invoke his name when they were in need.
And, as the legend goes, Nicholas was
known to make an occasional and miracu-
lous appearance to assist a ship at times of
adversity particularly during storms.
Today, someone with as many obvious
patronage duties and responsibilities as
Santa Claus can no longer be expected to
make an appearance whenever an erstwhile
mariner calls him, especially during the
holiday season.
So the holidays may be a very oppor-
tune time to make sure that your vessel is as
safe as possible. That means, of course, that
it's properly equipped and that you are edu-
cated in its legal operation.
There's no better time to do that than
during the gift-giving season since it is the
one time of the year you might actually be
able to ask friends and relatives to get you
stuff without creating too much controver-

St. Nick came to the aid of mariners in peril


sy. Here's a short non-exhaustive list of suggested goodies:
*Enough personal floatation devices (PFDs) for every-
one you have or ever plan to have on board your boat. Make
sure the ones you have are in good condition and the correct
type for your vessel if not, replace them immediately.
*Emergency flares and fire extinguishers. Like PFDs,
make sure the ones you have are in good condition and the
correct type for your vessel if not, replace them immedi-
ately.
.Good radios, extra emergency lights and whistles,
direction-finding equipment (including a real non-electronic
compass). While most equipment may not be legally
required for your particular vessel, it is all highly recom-
mended for safety purposes with, of course, the proviso
that you actually learn how to properly use the equipment,
and keep it in good working order.
Which brings us to possibly the most important gift a
boater can get for the protection of his vessel: knowledge.
There is probably no better present you can offer a vessel
owner than a good boater safety course.
Flotillas and Coast Guard Auxiliary units in South
Florida offer classes to meet any schedule. After all, a safe
and knowledgeable boater is less likely to invoke St.
Nicholas for assistance, which will make Santa's other jobs
so much easier to fulfill, especially during the holidays.

In fact, Santa starts getting really busy in Europe on Dec.
6 (his traditional feast day), when he arrives from Spain by
ship to Amsterdam to start the Christmas season there.
"Hey, wait a minute!" you might be saying, "What about
the sleigh, the North Pole, the reindeer, and those dar pesky
elves?"
Well, if you promise to be a good and safe boater, maybe
I'll get to that story next year. I'm sure Santa would like that.
Happy Holidays!

Volunteer patrols help ensure smooth sailing for Winterfest parade


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
For 33 years, the Winterfest boat parade has been part
of Fort Lauderdale's holiday tradition. But it's the volun-
teer teams of small boats patrolling the Intracoastal's 10-
mile route that help keep the event going.
"The attention, as it should be, is always on the 100
lighted boats that make up our parade," said Kathy
Keleher, Winterfest marketing director. "But if we didn't
have the help of so many groups to monitor the parade
route to keep it safe, the parade just wouldn't happen."
Under new sponsor the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel
and Casino, at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday Dec. 18, the parade
will once again travel from Port Everglades northward to
Lake Santa Barbara in Pompano Beach. It's expected that
1,500 spectator boats and 850,000 people on foot will
come out for the parade.
Volunteers like Lee Bell of the Fort Lauderdale Small
Boat Club will keep spectator boats out of the parade's
safety zone.
"There may be just as many people watching this
parade from the water as there are on land and we want to
make sure everything goes safely," said Bell, who for the
last six years has traveled in the event's lead patrol boat.
Volunteers make sure boats in the parade line up and
are ready to leave Port Everglades on time. Once the pro-
cession starts, their job is to keep spectator boats from get-
ting too close to parade boats.
More than 50 volunteer boats half of the number of
decorated parade entries are on hand to serve as "control
boats," monitoring everything that occurs along the route.
Working with the boat club will be the Fort
Lauderdale Marine Patrol, U.S. Coast Guard, Broward
Sheriff's Office and others.
"New boaters always get excited about the parade and
want to be in the best viewing spot along the route,"
Keleher said. "But it's the job of the control boats to make
sure those not in the parade stay back enough so there's no
threat to the safety of those involved in the parade."
Through the years, no major problems have occurred.
Every so often, a boat captain will "get carried away"
and has to be warned, Bell said. "We want every boat to

have a good time, but to do it safely."
The Fort Lauderdale Small Boat Club was created in
1948 as a social group for boaters with craft smaller than
32 feet. But it also takes on civic and charitable activities,
like a recently hosted fund-raiser for Goodwill Industries.
The club is headquartered at a 200-slip marina on the
Dania Cut-off Canal.
"The public doesn't realize the behind-the-scenes
effort made by so many people to create this annual spec-
tacle," said Keleher of the 350 volunteers who help the
small Winterfest administrative staff successfully bring off
the televised event.
Fort Lauderdale tourism will get a $24 million eco-
nomic boost from the parade, which this year will have the
theme "Rock 'n' Roll FantaSea" as a salute to its principal

Shaquille "Shaq" O'Neal, the 32-year-old famed cen-
ter for the Miami Heat, will act as grand marshal. He,
along with his wife and son, will be aboard the Lady
Windridge yacht. It will follow a barge shooting fireworks,
which traditionally opens each year's parade.
"This world-recognized sports figure fits in nicely
with our theme," said Lisa Scott-Founds, Winterfest's
executive director. "His presence in South Florida blends
dreams of basketball championships, movies and music."
Also scheduled to return again this year will be the
Circus Boat from the Sunrise Flea Market, which will fea-
ture live acts. Santa will arrive on a boat that will feature a
large conch shell.
In the U.S. alone, there are 50,000 parades a year.
Winterfest is ranked as one of the top 20 parades in the
world by the International Festival and Events Association,
keeping company with New York's Macy's Thanksgiving
Day and Pasadena's Tournament of Roses parades.

Bilge socks prevent oil, fuel leakage from the bilges of docked boats


I.lI i; o$-1lal]'ZIl
look for clues:
From davits, lower the boat to the water for a few days,
checking daily for petroleum slicks around the engine. Run
the engine and bilge pump. If anything's leaking into the
water, it should become visible at the surface.
At the launching ramp, let the engine run while you
park. Look for a slick before casting off. When you return to
port, run the bilge pump and inspect the expelled water
before pulling the boat ashore.


Those methods are not absolutely reliable, but if there's
much of a leak they should expose it.
Bilges tend to get greasy, so before you make that pump-
ing test you can prevent a false indication by squirting a gen-
erous amount of grease-dissolving liquid down there and
cleaning it out with a hose. Make sure the lower unit of your
engine is clean, too.
While you have the bilge inspection port open, Potter
said, you might as well drop in a fresh bilge sock.


That leaves one question: What about disposal?
Bilge socks are advertised as safe to throw out with the
household trash, but Potter warns that environmental regula-
tions may vary and change from one jurisdiction to another.
To avoid a violation, he said it's better to drop used-up bilge
socks in the marina container where used oil filters are col-
lected.
"You won't find that at the trailer ramp," he said. "It's a
wet-slip deal."


A GPS can aid in relocating good fishing holes

we got enough water depth to push the throttle forward. In
October, we could get up on plane right away. We stopped
almost at once, for we were passing one of those big grass-
mats. The night before, at a gas station, a guy who pressure-
cleans roofs told us the fish would be there. He was right.
Back when that was an area of shallower open water, we had-
n't caught anything there.
Aside from high water making most of the lake accessi-
ble to us, Brent Propst said our good fortune was due to the
food supply the fishes' food, not ours.
"I think the reason the fish don't move as far as they do
in the 'glades is due to the amount of food available at the
areas where they are. I have noticed this past year that the fish

didn't show up on the edges where they should have. They
stayed in the areas that they had spawned in, due to the food.
The fish will travel where they have to for food, and if the
food is present they won't move at all, even with rising and
falling water."
If you're going to fish like a tournament competitor, and
search the Everglades flats for big bass when the water is up
there, besides that pole and orange flag you'd better have a
good GPS unit. You need one at Okeechobee, too, because
the lake seldom looks the same from one trip to the next.
Even at normal water levels, it's hard to find your way back
to a good spot without a GPS.
Joe has a good one. He always brings it when we go up
to the lake. One of these days, we keep telling each other, we
must learn how to use it.

Holiday spirit reigns in Savannah's compact downtown


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Even a Yankee tourist is going to be bowled over by
the holiday season in Savannah, Ga.
The clip-clop of horse hooves and the strains of
"Jingle Bells" can be heard from a passing carriage
tour. Red velvet bows paired with evergreens and
sparkling white lights adorn lampposts, monuments and
sweeping staircases of historic homes. Christmas trees
are everywhere.
Carved from forest in 1733, Savannah came to be
according to James Oglethorpe's imaginative plan: create
a vibrant urban environment built around asymmetrical
network of squares out of the Georgia marshland.
Today, Savannah's rich sense of history and compact
downtown make it exceptionally inviting. The town is laid
out in 21 squares, each with its own personality. Most are
shaded by massive live oaks, their branches trailed by
Spanish moss. I recommend a walk down Bull Street
under canopies of live oak through historic Johnson,
Wright, Chippewa, Madison and Monterey Squares, end-
ing up at the beaux-arts fountain in Forsyth Park.
At 2.5-square miles, Savannah's historic district is
considered to be the nation's largest. The Historic
Savannah Foundatioh began saving most of old Savannah
in 1955. Through partnerships with private citizens, more
than 900 buildings of architectural and historic signifi-
cance have been saved and the reclamation work contin-
ues today.
Colorful trolleys, buses and horse-drawn carriages
ferry tourists. Newcomers are charmed by block after
block of stately mansions that range from simple colonial
style to the intricate medieval-influenced cathedrals to gin-
gerbread accents of the Victorian period. The dwellings
are outfitted with frosted glass doors, gas lanterns, oriels,
guardian lions and dolphin-shaped drainpipes. Scrolled
wrought iron balconies, stair railings and garden gates
adorn many historic homes.
The riverfront area reflects the days when Savannah


Old-fashioned
charm is always
a given in Savannah.
In December, the
historic waterfront
city takes on the
appearance of a
Christmas card.

was one of the largest ports on the Atlantic coast and
exported thousands of bales of cotton a year. Here the
streets are paved with stones originally used for ballast
from the early sailing ships. Shops, restaurants and out-
door events abound. The River House, set in a former cot-
ton warehouse, serves delicious dishes such as peppered
shrimp and low country grits, lobster bisque soup and crab
cake saute with mango chutney.
For a small city, Savannah is blessed with a rich selec-
tion of inns and restaurants. The oldest is the Georgian
mansion, Olde Pink House, appropriately painted pink.
Built in 1771, notable figures such as Sherman's general
and revolutionary patriots dinned here.


The antique-filled dining room glows by candlelight,
the soft light of crystal chandeliers and a soothing gas fire
flame in the grate. If the main dining area is full, try the
downstairs tavern, a piano bar with dual fireplaces. It's a
cozy spot to enjoy crab-stuffed grouper and other dishes
steeped in the traditions of the Low Country.
Mrs. Wilkes, a Savannah institution, serves a board-
ing house-style lunch in the basement of a 1870s brick
house. Visitors sit at long tables, savoring platters of fried
chicken, ham, sweet potato souffle and sweet tea. Back on
Bull Street, the Moon River Brewing Company offers fla-
vorful handcrafted brews, pub grub and lively music.
Offering classic beauty and southern charm, the sunlit
windows of the Planter's Inn overlook Reynold's Square.
Surrounding the venerable inn are antique shops, art gal-

VITA RESEARCH has found a way to perma-
nently restore beaches that have been destroyed
by erosion using a plan that has been tested for
thirty-six years.

Rather than wasting billions of dollars on tempo-
rary beach renourishment, by using our patented
Ero Jacks as sand traps we are able to retain re-
placed sand even under harsh conditions.

In f%96, the-YanlemClippe Hotel on Fort Lau-
derdale beach was losing its north sand bar to
ocean currents. To prevent this from happening

cooperation with Nova University's Oceano-
graphic Center and Broward County determined
that several thousand Ero Jacks be placed in the
channel being gouged into the sand by these beach
eroding currents. Twenty years later a study
proved the Ero Jacks to be a success; the chan-
nel was cut off and the sand bar restored.

By deploying Ero Jacks on an eroding surface
parallel with a seawall wave action is calmed and
sand is retained.

We are SEEKING MARINE CONTRACTORS
interested in our Ero Jacks erosion control system.

Because of their Unique Design, these
reinforced concrete Ero Jacks when
placed, lock into one another as shown
above creating sand traps.


Pictured on the right is one section offive Ero
Jacks steel molds ready for shipment to a job
site. Each mold holds 400 pounds of concrete.
The five molds produce one ton of Ero Jacks.
Vita Research can ship 20 sections offive molds
to each job site. 100 molds can cast twenty tons
of Ero Jacks daily. We have special equipment
to remove and deploy five Ero Jacks at one
time from the moldSflolds are filled with
concrete on a barge, only to be handled once.

Take a lifetime of

Experience onboard


S ver the last 91 years Ward's Marine Electric has
been invited onboard more fine crafts than
any other company of electrical specialists in the
Southeastern United States. Some of our ABYC certi-
fied electricians are working on some lady of the sea, in
some far off port, every week of the year. Sure, it took
us a lifetime to become known as the electrical special-
ists of the yachting, world, and it's something we're
awfully proud of, but our greatest source of pride is
being invited onboard as an electrical specialist... only
to be invited back as a friend.

On June 14, 2002, the Centers for Disease Control announced
that West Nile Virus has established itself permanently in North
America." It continues to spread westward. Found in 27 states in
2001, it had already been identified in 38 states-induding
Florida-by early August 2002, and as far west as Colorado.
Louisiana and Mississippi have declared a state of emergency due
to deaths from West Nile Virus,a mosquito-bore disease. In
August 2002, the numbers of human deaths from West Nile Virus
surpassed the total for all of 2001, and it continues to rise.

DECEMBER 2004 '









Savannah once among the largest ports on the Atlantic coast


leries, the Lucas Theater, and a cluster of trendy bistros.
There are a flock of festivals and events throughout
the year. On St. Patrick's Day, revelers party in the streets.
Green reigns from spiked hair and frisky dogs to the city
fountains and steaming grits. The celebration trails only
New York City and Boston in scope.
On the fringes of town is Bonaventure Cemetery with
its moss-draped oaks, azaleas and dogwoods alongside the
Wilmington River. It was once a lavish plantation owned
by Col. Mulyme. When fire broke out at one of his dinner
parties, the colonel ordered the dining table moved into
the side yard where guests finished dinner watching the
mansion bum to the ground.


Bonaventure's eerie beauty was made famous in John
Berndt's bestseller "Midnight in the Garden of Good &
Evil." Popular songwriter Johnny Mercer, the Pulitzer
Prize-winning poet Conrad Aiken, Little Gracie and
scores of confederate soldiers, are buried there.
Further east along the Wilmington River is
Thunderbolt, a quaint fishing village that acquired its
name from a legendary lightning strike in colonial times.
From there it's onto the charming riverside communities
of Isle of Hope and Skidaway Island.
Hopscotching over creeks and a network of salt
marshes brings you to Tybee Island. Twenty minutes from
downtown, Tybee with its wide beaches and seaside
cottages with wrap-around porches is an alluring blend
of the offbeat and upscale.

Convention and Visitor's Bureau at 912-644-6405;
