Long-awaited ma
Construction expected
to start in spring
By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
In a move that local boating enthusiasts say is long
overdue, Fort Lauderdale will get a museum that high-
lights the city's maritime history.
Plans for the facility were recently approved by Fort
Lauderdale city commissioners as part of new develop-
ment that will include offices, apartments and shops.
The project is being built by New River Trading Post
Development LLC. The company holds a lease on a 1.2-
acre city-owned site, on the New River facing Southwest
Second Street. Construction is expected to start this spring
and take a year to complete.
The development, at the west end of Riverwalk, is
expected to provide a connection between the downtown's
arts and science district and the historic Himmarshee
Village. An old post office built in 1927 will be torn down
to make way for the museum. The building will take up
more than 5,000 square feet and resemble a 1920s-era
boathouse, said Kelly Drum, a partner in New River
Trading Post Development LLC.
Fort Lauderdale City Mayor Jim Naugle said the
attraction will be a welcome addition to Riverwalk. Fort
Lauderdale has the dual image of being the Venice of
America and the yachting capital of the world, he said.
"It's been a long time desire to have a maritime muse-
um in our city. We found a way to construct one without
using tax dollars."
The plans by New River Trading Post were approved
by commissioners because its project was low impact.
City officials did not want a high-rise office or condomini-
um on the site, Naugle said.
"We asked developers to come up with ideas. There's

been a movement within Fort Lauderdale for the past
decade to have a maritime museum. [New River Trading
Post] put it in their proposal in the hopes of being chosen
and it worked."
Although a bit of the city's history will be erased with
the demolition of the post office, Naugle said there have
been debates over the years on what to do with the struc-
ture. Commissioners decided not to save it.
A board of directors has already been established for
the museum, Drum said. One of the members is his grand-


father, former City Mayor Bob Cox, who has been a driv-
ing force behind getting the museum off the ground.
Cox co-founded the Thousand Island Antique Boat
Museum in Clayton, NY. He has been trying to establish a
maritime museum in Fort Lauderdale for 25 years.
The major problem has been the availability of water-
front land, said Cox, who also founded the 57-year-old
Lauderdale Marina.

Wanted: S. Fla. participants for upcoming Black Boaters Summit


By BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Nine years ago, Paul Mixon was approached by a yacht
charter company to market charter yacht cruises to African
Americans.
That request led Mixon to create the Black Boaters
Summit, a yearly excursion in the British Virgin Islands that
caters to both novice and expert sailors. Since then, the sum-
mit has grown from eight participants on one boat during its
initial outing in 1997, to 141 people on 24 vessels in 2004.
Mixon said he expects the upcoming eighth annual sum-
mit, to be held Aug. 12 to 21, to fill 40 sailboats and 10
powerboats with 500 people.
To recruit participants for the 2005 excursion, he plans
to make appearances at several boat shows throughout the
country, including Strictly Sail Miami.
The 20th Anniversary of Strictly Sail Miami, the sailing
portion of the Miami International Boat Show, takes place
Feb. 17 to 21 at Miamarina inside the Bayside Marketplace
in downtown Miami. Mixon, who goes by the nickname
"Cap'n Paul," will be at the British Virgin Islands Tourist
Board booth.
Of the 50 boat captains in the 2005 summit, four are
based in South Florida, Mixon said.
"I want to support them in their efforts to recruit African
Americans," he said of his planned appearance at Strictly Sail.
This year marks Mixon's fourth visit to the event. "Boat

shows are a great place to discover African Americans with
an interest in boating," he said.
Mixon also intends to personally promote the summit at
other boat shows, including those in Chicago and Oakland,
Calif.
Mixon said he believes he is the only person who has a
business that markets travel excursions strictly to African
Americans. His San Francisco Bay area-based tour company,
Honey Let's Travel, also promotes skiing trips.
His efforts has drawn notice from several major charter
yacht companies such as The Moorings in Clearwater, which
provide yachts to the summit.
The boating industry is still missing out on a very lucra-
tive market, Mixon said. Statistics show that African
Americans are traveling 16 percent more than the general

population and represent approximately $540 billion dollars
in annual income.
In promoting the Black Boaters Summit, the majority of
past participants have come from New York, Chicago,
Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Mixon sees South Florida
as a viable place to recruit future sailors.
"South Florida does not have a large African American
boating community," Mixon said. "Those are in Detroit,
Chicago, Annapolis and Baltimore."
But South Florida does have a large population of mid-
dle class African Americans. "We would like to encourage
them to try the sport of sailing," he said.

Water bikes still banned from Biscayne


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Columnist
Next time we run into Linda Canzanelli, superintend-
ent of Biscayne National Park, let's all give her a hug and
our gratitude. Same goes for Fran Mainella, director of the
National Park Service.
Why so happy? They've done as we've asked.
You'll recall the fuss made last year when a Jetski
industry association petitioned the Park Service to let
those things back into Biscayne, where they were given
the heave ho in 1998 largely due to the aggressive,
destructive immaturity of their riders.
Fishing-doers and other lovers of tranquility rose up
in rage against the industry's application to re-admit our
enemies to Biscayne. We urged, begged, implored,
demanded and insisted, and we won.
Cindy Russell, an officer of the South Florida Fly
Fishing Club, took her beef straight to Mainella.
Mainella replied in January that the water bike
request led to a review of commentaries that were
received by the Park Service in 2000, when the 1998 water
bike ban was considered for promotion from a temporary

rule to a permanent one.
"After taking into consideration the more than 20,000
comments received on the subsequent rule, the National
Park Service has determined that no changes arewarrant-
ed to the regulations governing the use of personal water-
craft in NPS waters," Mainella wrote to Russell.
So the ban sticks, but Jetski interests probably won't
give up so we'd better not get too complacent.
Experience with Biscayne has proved that when our
sport speaks up, the Park Service listens, pays attention,
takes our concerns seriously and tries to accommodate our
interests in balance with others.
We'll probably never run out of cynics who believe
that the major decisions have been made by the time we're
invited, and that the rest of the process is a sham. That's
okay, as long as the cynics still participate and contribute
good ideas.

Fishing offshore in the wild winter wind with live bait


By ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Columnist
"This is good," the captain said
S as the boat descended into a trough.
"The water should be a little
bit rough," he added as we ascend-
ed to the next crest.
"Right," said I, mind's-eyeing
both our silhouettes against the
S waves. "These are about five feet
S high, some of them six."
Follow this instructive little
Arnold Markowitz narrative and you will understand
why that was good, and when not to fool with certain pro-
fessional techniques that will raise your long-term catch
rates on the ocean, but are more trouble than they're worth
on a boat that's performing like an oversized yoyo.
Ride along and we'll show you what offshore fishing is
like in windy winter. You won't get to eat the fish we
already have but take my word for it: they're delicious.
And just wait till you read about the secret kingfish bait!
I should mention that I was swaying in concert with the
waves, balancing somewhat deftly and holding on, some-
times with both hands one on a rod handle, the other on
anything I could reach. Skipper Marty Arostegui, with hands
freed of the helm by autopilot, was being careful too. We're
daring, not reckless.
We maintained a controlled drift, abeam to the seas,
engines on but mostly idling, at the edge of the Gulf Stream
southeast of Key Biscayne and east of Fowey Light. Three
flat lines baited with threadfin herring trailed behind Marty's
35-foot flybridge sportfisher Timely Sale.
We overlapped the boundary between green water and
blue, fishing the upper layer of water that ranged from 120
to 130 feet deep.
Fish don't care about the depth, but there's a feeding
lane out there and the depth identifies it.
"We won't use kites or outriggers," Marty had said as
we baited our hooks. Good thinking. His outriggers are
mounted on the flybridge. The wind was puffing between
20-25 knots on deck. Up above, there would be another knot
or so, with less footing and lots more swaying assuming
he could make the climb without getting flung around.
When you hire a charter boat, it's probably a few feet
bigger than 35, less rockable, and the riggers are worked

from the gunwales by a mate who has mountain goat feet
and does that every day.
When it's just you and a pal or two, you want to fish, not
work. For the same reason, you'll rig bait the easy way.
In our livewell, with lid opened for added aeration, bait
water surged end to end, lipping the rim just short of slosh-
ing out as we rose and fell. The captives within failed to see
the escape opportunity or lacked the courage to go for it.
Maybe they needed leadership. If you were in there
with them, you would take over:
"Listen up, guys,' you would say. "We're three dozen
fish against two men who aren't paying much attention to
us. When our water surges, let's ride it in teams of five or six
to the lip of the well, then leap out. Chances are one or two
will come down on the ocean instead of the deck."
Think they would have taken you up on it? Not likely.
Threadfin herring are not known for taking risks. They are
vigorous wigglers who flee enthusiastically when a predator
fish approaches. That's why we use them.
It's a good bet none of ours were discussing, as we were,
the benefits of a rough-textured sea surface when you're after
sail and kingfish. Those two feed more actively in such con-

On the way to blue water, we had anchored alongside
the steel skeleton marker that offshoremen call the Bait
Light. Our herring were in school there that morning. We got
them excused for the rest of the day. As they came aboard,
the lurching caused some to fall to the deck. They tried to get
up, slipped, and fell again. Marty and I did better.
We hadn't expected so much wind. It was supposed to be
in the typical 10 to 15-knot range but by the time we reached
the Bait Light it was puffing at 20-plus without many lulls.
That put a sharp chop on Biscayne Bay as we ran out the
Stiltsville channel, so we knew the forecast the night before
had underestimated the wind and the seas would be up.
If you fish offshore very much, you should know wind-
speed is the least reliable part of a night-before marine
weather forecast.
So you don't worry much about it, except when decid-
ing whose boat to use. Draw straws to appear fair but rig the
game so it's always the guy who has the biggest, deepest-
draft boat with the softest ride.
"Your boat couldn't handle this," Marty said as a wave
picked Timely Sale up.
"Sure it could," I said defensively as it came down.
My boat could handle it, but could I? I thought.
Besides using all flatlines, no outriggers or kites, we con-
ceded to the \rind on bait-rigging. I am fond of the bridling
technique fashioning a cute little haress of Dacron fishing
line, dental floss or #8 rubber band to secure a hook to the live

When a salvage

situation is unseemly


By MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Columnist
Some of you may recall the satirical
science fiction novel, "The Hitchhiker's
Guide To The Galaxy." In this story
about the adventures of an ordinary
earthling who ends up traveling in outer
space, the tale's hero is forever referenc-
ing the so-called Hitchhiker's Guide,
finding comfort that the front cover of
the guide says in large bold capital let-
ters, "DON'T PANIC."
These are certainly words to live by
while going on any adventure, whether in
another galaxy or for that matter, on the
waters of good old mother earth. It's also
excellent advice for the boat owner who
ends up with a vessel grounded on a
sandbar or other obstacle and then
attempts to deal with a salvage/towage
company to assist-in their vessel's situa-
tion. Indeed, if such a predicament
should ever occur to a boat owner, the
words "Don't Panic" could prove very
instructive.
As regular readers of this column
may recall, the term salvage is generally
defined as the voluntary rendering of
assistance to a maritime property due to a
maritime peril, for which the property
benefited. Those rendering the service
may seek an award for their efforts.
Under.this description, it does seem
that a vessel grounding could, in most
circumstances, be defined as a salvage
situation if assistance from another party
is given to aid the vessel. Salvage can
prove to be an onerous expense to a boat
owner who is ill prepared for the event.
Generally, salvage comes in
two forms pure salvage and contract
salvage:
Pure salvage is when voluntary serv-
ices are rendered without an existing con-

tract. Afterwards, if a price can't be
agreed upon by the parties, the court will
set a reasonable award.
Contract salvage is when a price
agreement is made with the boat opera-
tor/owner before the salvor does any
work. If no agreement was made, and
you allow the salvor to assist you any-
way, it would arguably be a case of pure
salvage. Many people, including some in
the maritime professions, will refer to
contract salvage as a "tow" situation,
although I consider this erroneous
despite its common use.
Between these two types of salvage,
the boat operator/owner is generally best
advised for economic reasons to negoti-
ate for a contract salvage situation should
the need for aid ever arise.
Several salvage/towing companies
and boat clubs have programs that claim
to make this matter of pure vs. contract
salvage easier for the boating consumer.
These plans generally claim that for an
annual fee, a salvage/towage company
will come to your vessel's aid under many
circumstances to tow or free your boat
from a grounding at either a reduced fee
or no fee similar to an auto club plan.
I've always believed such programs
are helpful to the boating community -
with some cautions.
S The plans do vary between clubs and
companies. and should be scrutinized
before agreeing and paying for them.
Even small differences can lead to big
expenses when you finally require a serv-
ice. So remember, small print can make a
big difference. Take the time to do the
research to find the program that's right
for your needs.
Also, it must be noted that virtually
all these programs distinguish in their

Salvage definitions on hard and soft

groundings open to legal interpretation


V INq hIl 1114 kE\'drl |l0llt1[ll 1
agreements between "hard groundings" vs. "soft ground-
ings," which I have found can lead to misunderstandings
and contentions.
All the plans I have reviewed offer their services
at the free or reduced rate for a soft grounding,
but the service will consider a hard grounding a pure sal-
vage situation.
So, what is the difference between a hard grounding
and a soft grounding? Well, one particular program
describes them this way:
"A soft ungrounding is any operation not involving
immediate danger to the boat or a legally protected marine
environment and requiring only one towing vessel with
lines attached to the grounded boat to refloat."
The same plan describes a hard grounding as:
"Any operation involving immediate peril to the ground-
ed boat, the marine environment, or special salvage equip-
ment (pumps, airbags, dredging equipment, cranes, etc."
As you can see, such descriptions can be left open to
some interpretation by the parties, which can again open
the door to abuse or misunderstandings.
So, to get the best use of a boat plan, here are a few
suggestions:


Win a fishing trip with Arnold
Fill out our Waterfront News reader survey, and you
and a friend may win a day-long fishing trip with fishing
columnist Arnold Markowitz and expert fishing guide
Alan Zaremba.
The survey asks no intrusive personal questions, and
we will not let advertisers or anyone else use you as a
marketing target.
The questionnaire and drawing entry form will be


Remember, until you take a line or make an agree-
ment, you almost always have the right to refuse a salvor's
services. So, find out first if this particular salvor recog-
nizes your program and whether your particular situation
is completely covered. If not, and if there is sufficient time
(i.e., your boat isn't about ready to sink or will sustain
greater damage), negotiate!
Work out the details of what the salvor plans to do,
including costs, and get it in writing before you allow any
services to begin. Also, remember, if the salvor has told
you that your program won't cover your present situation,
and you have the time, it might not hurt to try and contact
another service to make a better agreement.
Moreover, don't sign any agreement without reading
it first. Remember, clauses in contracts are negotiable.
Hopefully, these cautions will be of some help should
you intend to join a paid tow program. It's mostly a case
of standing your own ground about your choices. And,
like it says on the cover of the "Hitchhiker's Guide" -
DON'T PANIC!

Lauderdale's first Blessing of the Fleet honors tsunami victims


By WILLIAM R. HAWKINS
Waterfront News Staff
On Feb. 6, boat owners will take their craft to church
in what's believed to be Fort Lauderdale's first "Blessing
of the Fleet."
The event takes place at the steps of All Saints'
Episcopal Church, located downtown on the New River.
"It's unbelievable to me that in this area, where boating
is such a dominant part of our life, no one has ever stepped
forward to do this," said the Rev. Sherod Mallow, rector of
All Saints. "But we're happy to take the lead and plan on
making this an annual event."
Tribute will be paid to victims of the South Asia
tsunami, said Karen Unger, co-chair of the event. "We
have designated the tsunami relief effort as a special recip-
ient of 10 percent of the proceeds we raise over
the weekend."
The tradition of boat blessing dates back to 325 AD in
Portugal, when clergy asked for the safety of mariners and
good fishing harvests from the sea, Mallow said. In more
modem times, cities including Biloxi Bay, Miss. started it
in 1929, Ullulla, Australia in 1956, Treasure Island, Fla. in
1994, and now Fort Lauderdale.
"It's especially fitting that we have it at this time
because the Miami Boat Show will be held shortly after our
blessing, and maybe those taking boats to the show will
want a little extra blessing before they go," said Connie
Commette, chairman of the boat blessing.
Mallow said all boats big and small are welcome to
attend. There is no charge, but boaters are asked to pre-regis-
ter by calling the church office at 954-468-6496, or logging on
www.AllSaintsFL.com or www.BlessingofthefleetFL.com.
All Saints Episcopal Church, founded in 1912, has a
long history as a waterfront religious site. In 1949 it moved
to its present location at 333 Tarpon Drive along the New
River off Las Olas Boulevard. Church membership includes
about 850 families.
"We have one of the largest undeveloped non-residen-
tial parcels left along the New River," Mallow said, looking
across the spacious grassy grounds of the church-owned


waterfront Brion Park.
The church has a boat dock at its back door with some
parishioners coming to service via the water.
"Water plays an important part of religious history and
theology," Mallow said. It's only fitting that we now make
it a part of our mission to the community, which has boating
as a way of life not only for many of our church members,
but others in the area."
The church has a full schedule of activities planned for
the Blessing of the Fleet weekend. On Saturday, Feb. 5, it
will host a captain's Dinner Gala on the church grounds fea-
turing a full-course meal and entertainment.
There also will be an auction hawking items like dinner
for four on a multi-million dollar yacht and a trip to stay at
a villa in Tuscany. Proceeds from the dinner will go toward
the church's capital improvement campaign.

I Church, prepares a wreath for
use in the first Blessing of the
Fleet to be held Sunday, Feb. 6.
L-R: Event planner Connie
Commette with. co-chairs Karen
S.-. Unger and Patty Meyer.






On Sunday, the blessing will begin with the 10:30 a.m.
worship service when Mallow will address his remarks to
boaters. At 1 p.m., a fish fry will be held outdoors as part of
the blessing celebration.
Boats will head westward passing the church's back-
yard on the New River where Mallow will officiate. The
Rev. James Ottleg, assistant bishop of the Episcopal Diocese
of South Florida, will assist him.
The blessing will follow traditional church proce-
dures and readings. In addition, people will lay out memo-
rial wreaths on the water in tribute to loved ones or per-
sons lost at sea.
Tickets are now on sale for the Feb. 5 dinner, which
starts at 6 p.m., and the 1 p.m. Feb. 6 fish fry. Cost: $75 per
person for a weekend ticket, or $65 per person for the gala
and auction, or $15 for just the fish fry.
The church is also selling. special commemorative
medallions to mark the event. Proceeds for those sales will
go toward Seafarer's House at Port Everglades, which is an
outreach ministry for the cruise ship industry.

A tale of the kingfish that snatched the sandwich


baitfish-because it's least damaging to the bait, enables it to
put in more time on the job and gives it great freedom of
movement. That makes the most natural presentation.
It works best on a charter, with a skilled mate who can
rig quickly and accurately in virtually any sort of weather. In
big-money tournaments, a hired crew often includes two
such mates. On a good amateur team, everyone should be a
competent bridler. -
On a windy, rough-water day when it's just you and a
buddy or two out.for some fun, there's no need for that sort
of intensity. Except while fighting a fish, you don't want
both hands busy for more than a few seconds, especially
with a sharp hook, rigging needle and squirming bait.
So Marty and I just stuck our circle hooks in the bait the
old-fashioned way-in the fleshy part of the back between
head and dorsal fin, taking care not to stick the backbone.
We dropped the baits over the stem, let out line and
propped the rods up to wait for bites, which we received. We
fished three stout spinning rods, no more than we could han-
dle, with lines of 12-pound test and 50-pound leaders. One
was rigged with a heavy sinker to fish deep; the others were
free-lined at the surface.
Sticking to simplest fundamentals, we brought two sail-
fish to the boat, lost a third one when the other lines were not
reeled in quickly enough and gaffed three kings.
One of the sailfish nearly ran the line out. Marty scram-
bled around the cabin to the bow while I drove the boat until
we caught up and he regained line. It was the smallest of our
three sails, and the hardest-fighting.
In the afternoon, the wind subsided. So did the sea. And
so, predictably, did the bite. We got out the sandwiches and
drinks, ate and talked fishing.
"Live bait is always the best bait," said Marty, who has
another life as a fly fisherman with more IGFA world
records than he can hold in one hand.
I agreed, with the caution that almost any bait can work.
For example, I know of truth-telling fishermen who have
caught freshwater trout using cigarette filters as flies. Once
I caught a snook with a strip of stale Col. Sanders fried
chicken, sliced from the drumstick.

Marty didn't flinch when I told him those, and I am not
the only fisherman he knows who's hooked a dolphin that
leapt to the sky and came down on deck.
But my friend's faith in his friend's veracity was rattled
by the story of the kingfish that ate a sandwich. I am pub-
lishing it now for the first time, as proof that it is true.
I was on the Gulf Stream one calm summer day, fish-
ing for dolphin near a weedline with my wife and three
friends witnesses, sir! -when a sandwich came float-
ing along.
Evidently homemade, it was made on white bread, not
sliced in.half. It was sealed in a zippered plastic bag.
What could it be? Ham and cheese? Tuna?
Had someone lost it? Tossed it?
While the others considered possibilities, I man of
action grabbed up the landing net. At just that moment,
a kingfish swam up to the sandwich, snatched it and
swam away.
"Nobody ever believes it," I grumped to Marty, as
though expecting him to take my word.
He averted his eyes.
"I find that story," he began, paused a long time and
finally added, "a little bit incredulous."
He didn't say, but I knew, what he thought was in the
sandwich: Baloney.

Back in the baitwell, the few remaining threadfin herring
were pumping their courage with a lusty singalong of the
1939 Kay Kyser hit, 'Three Little Fishes in a Itty Bitty Poo."
Down in the meadow in a itty bitty poo'
swam three little fishies and a mama fishie too.
"Swim" said the mama fishie, "Swim if you can,"
And they swam and they swam all over the dam.
The refrain (Bip-bop, dittum-dottum, whottum, Choo!)
is downright irresistible but I, brooding over Marty's
incredulity, tapped my foot half-heartedly.
Next time we fish in blue water, I'm bringing an extra
sandwich. I'll show him.

Jacksonville: Waterfront city hosts Super Bowl XXXIX


Uitls


By TERRY CONWAY
Waterfront News Writer
Canoe or kayak into the Timucuan Ecological and
Historical Preserve's 26,000 acres, and get a glimpse of
what Florida must have looked like when Ponce de Leon
first stepped onto its shores in 1513.
The watery preserve teems with schools of fish, dol-
phins and manatees its undisturbed marshlands patrolled
by ospreys, great blue heron and bald eagles.
Florida's northeast region is divided by the meandering
waters of the St. Johns River, one of only a few north-run-
ning rivers in the world. Cool mineral springs, shimmering
lakes and verdant forests of cedar and oaks abound.
The Spaniards came to seek their fortunes here and to
protect their treasure ships that traveled the East Coast of
what is today the United States. They used the mighty St.
John's River as a source of food as well as a watery passage-
way to venture into Florida's untamed interior.
Jacksonville was first known as Cowford, named for the
narrow spot where people of the 1800s moved cattle across
the St. Johns River by ferry. The town was renamed to honor
Andrew Jackson by the time Florida achieved statehood in
1845, an important port in the cotton and timber trades.
Jacksonville has always been Old South with its stately
oak-shaded avenues, sweeping porches and luscious gar-
dens that overlook the setting sun on the St. John's River. A
vibrant, midsize city with an enviable waterfront setting, the
city and county were consolidated in 1968 that made "J-
vill," as locals call it, the largest U.S. city in land area.
Now; Jacksonville will host Super Bowl XXXIX on
Feb. 6 at ALLTEL Stadium.
The Riverfront and South Bank districts offer visitors a
taste of the city's revitalized downtown.
In 1921 the opening of the Acosta Bridge set the stage for
the development of the river's south bank. Today it's a favored
spot with a quaint community of homes, shops and restau-


rants situated around San Marco Square. Nearby is the
Cummer Museum of Arts and Garden that boasts an impres-
sive array of decorative and fine arts dating back to 2000 B.C.
New additions include the Wark Collection of early Meissen
porcelain tableware, the Dennis C. Hayes Collection of
Japanese woodblock prints, and the Eugene Louis Charvot
Collection of 19th century prints and paintings.
From southern-fried chicken to fresh fish, sushi, steak
or barbecue, Riverfront and Southbank is stocked with plen-
ty of trendy eateries that overlook the St. Johns River and the
downtown skyline.
When you step through the doors of Bistro Aix (pro-
nounced Bistro "X") in the historic San Marco district, you
get the feeling of a lively bistro in the south of France.
Named after the French town Aix-en-Provence, Executive
Chef and Partner Tom Gray's Mediterranean-inspired cui-

sine blends old-world influences and modem interpretation.
The Cube Libre club offers Latin music and an elongat-
ed dance floor; plush leather couches and striking, native art-
work; authentic Cuban cuisine and exotic drinks native to
the Caribbean like the popular Mojito. Cuba Libre is locat-
ed next to its sister restaurant Havanna Jax.
Built in 1902 as a private residence, the Inn at Oak
Street is located in the Riverside National Register Historic
1)istrict, one of the most diverse collections of historic resi-
,dential architecture in Florida. The impressive exterior of the
three-story home is in the frame vernacular style with a
steeply pitched gable roof, shed dormers and a 70-foot recre-
ated wraparound porch. Inside, the heart of pine floors, fire-
places and double-hung sash windows are restored to their

In 1966 VITA RESEARCH permanently restored
the Taromina Hotel beach in Hallandale. The $800
million Diplomat Hotel, which is in the same high
erosion area, has no beach!

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 1966, the Yankee Clipper Hotel on Fort Lau-
derdale beach was losing its north sand bar to
ocean currents. To prevent this from happening
an engineering firm, D.E. Britt Associates, in


The patented Ero Jack sand trap


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 preventing
the Fort Lauderdale beach from eroding.

By deploying Ero Jacks on an eroding surface
from or parallel to a shoreline, wave action is
calmed and sand is retained.

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

323 MOLA AVENUE


FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA 33301


To Marine Contractors:

A river of sand constantly flows south creating erosion problems all along our 2,300 miles of United States coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. In
the past, beach erosion has been confronted by installing groins, revetments, and seawalls, or pumping sand onto eroded beaches at great expense
while providing only temporary relief. Now, some of the seawalls are being undermined by the tremendous storms and wave action. As a result, most
of our beaches have disappeared.

Vita Research & Development has been testing and working on this problem in south Florida since 1966. They have created and patented a
400-pound, six prong, reinforced concrete jack. When these jacks are placed in the water on eroded surfaces, they lock into one another creating sand
traps which hold the replaced sand permanently in place regardless of storm conditions. Proof of this may be seen in our brochure or underwater
video tape. Refer to the Yankee Clipper Hotel or Taromina Resort Hotel.

In 1966, Vita Research & Development accomplished this at the Taromina Resort Hotel in Hallandale, Florida, which is in sight of the Westin
Diplomat Resort & Spa. This is considered one of the worst erosion areas in Broward County. At the time the Taromina Resort Hotel was under
construction, they were about to have their 12-foot high seawall undermined by erosion. Vita Research & Development convinced the owners to allow
them to place their patented Ero Jacks at the site extending out 200 feet seaward. If not successful, it would cost them nothing. They agreed and after
36 years of exposure (see details in brochure) it remains a very stable beach. In 1966 no permits were necessary and the county was not aware of the
project. This is the only beach in the entire area that remains stable in spite of Hurricane Michelle.

In 1965, when I conceived the idea of Ero Jacks as sand traps, it was based on the idea of common sense and practical judgement. That is why
I spent thousands of dollars in patents and fabricating molds to produce the first Ero Jacks. Mountains of sand accumulate north of man-made inlets
that extend out several thousand feet. The overflow is so far out that it washes the natural flow of sand out to sea, starving the beaches south of the
inlet. That is why we suggest placing 40 tons of Ero Jacks south of the inlet out 200 feet from the shoreline and 2000 feet apart. They prevent the
sand from drifting south and once the Ero Jacks are covered with sand, they create a permanent sandy beach. We have proved this at the Taromina
beach after 39 years of exposure.

We have thirty-nine years of proven beach restoration. "To our knowledge, no one else can make this claim!" Replenishing our beaches
with sand on a temporary basis, whether financed by the cities, counties, states, or the federal government, is costing the taxpayers of our nation
billions periodically.
Sincerely,
Larry Vita
President, Vita Research & Development

ver the last 51 years Ward's Marine Electric has
been invited onboard more fine crafts than
any other company of electrical specialists in the
Southeastern United States. Some of our ABYC certified
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 specialists
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.
