Miami show markets less expensive boating options


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront News Writer
Boating doesn't always have to equal big bucks.
That's whole point of the affordability pavilion, returning
for the second year to the Miami International Boat Show
running Thursday, Feb. 11 to Monday, Feb. 15.
The display's debut in 2009 got a good reception, but it
was in the rear of the Miami Convention Center. For its return
this year, organizers are giving the exhibition a prime spot by
moving it up front, directly inside the Dade Boulevard
entrance.
"It's going to be one of the first things people see," said
Cathy Rick-Joule, show manager of Miami International Boat


Show and Strictly Sail.
Sixteen to 20 power boats, all available for monthly
payments of $250 or less, are expected to fill the pavilion that
lets visitors explore without the presence of sales people, said
Rick-Joule, who's also vice president of the southern shows
division for the National Marine Manufacturers Association.
The trade association is responsible for producing 17
consumer shows nationwide. The affordability pavilion was
introduced during the 2008-2009 season in response to bat-
tling the concept particularly among newcomers that
boating is for the wealthy, she said.
"While recreational boating in the U.S. is perceived to be


an activity for the affluent, the vast majority of boaters are
middle class participants," she said.
A recreational boating study in 2008 found that about 75
percent of boat owners have a household income under
$100,000, and an estimated 95 percent of boats are trailerable
craft 26 feet or less, according to the association.
Despite recent economic woes, yachts and mega-yachts
experienced little decline in sales nationwide. The mid-range
market, with boats 18 to 35 feet, didn't fare as well. There was
a 25 percent drop in sales over the past year, Rick-Joule said.
Attendance for the 2009 Miami show, drawing 96,736
visitors, was down 26 percent.
"As we pull out of the recession, we want to make
sure people know that buying a boat is still within reach,"
Rick-Joule said. "Our challenge is that people think the
only boats out there are in the six and seven figure price
range. It's not true."
Craft at the display will range from runabouts to fish-
ing boats, 13 to 21 feet. This includes a Glasstream 175
Bay Flite for $236.31 per month; Glasstream 172 Flats
Flite for $197.80 per month; Scout 151 Sportfish w/ 40HP
Honda Engine for $215 per month, and a 130 Boston
Whaler Super Sport for $140 per month.
There's also a 192 Rinker BR with Mercruiser V6 for
$228 per month; a 17CC Prolite w with 90 HP ETEC for
$205 per month; a 210 Rinker MTX C/C with 43 Volvo GXI
for $249.02 per month, and a 20 Prolite Flats with 115
ETEC for $233 per month all from Davey Marine
Center in Fort Lauderdale.
The center participated in last year's pavilion and is eager
to return, said Mario Aiello, president of family-owned deal-
ership and full service facility established in 1977.
Aiello likes the affordability concept. "The booths are
unmanned, with pricing on signs," he said. "There's no pres-

Recent cold snap deaths extend snook's closed season


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
To see the fishing impact of a cold wave as long and
bitter as January's two-week shocker, you don't have to get
so close to a death scene that you gag on the stench. The
gleam of sun on silver bodies lying on a brown flat exposed
by a low tide is enough to inform the squeamish.
I scouted the lower mile and a quarter of Snapper
Creek canal twice in those two awful weeks, not with mor-
bid intentions but for medicinal purposes. I had an awful
case of cabin fever caused by cold, windy weather.
There were two good days for paddling a canoe, on
Thursday a week apart first after a bad cold snap, sec-
ond after the worst one.
Each time, well inland from the ugly scenes at the
canal's mouth on Biscayne Bay, I could tell what was going
on simply by looking into the water as I rode a falling tide
downstream.
At the end of the second run, a glance at the flat on the
right confirmed what I had figured out already. We had a
fish kill of obvious significance.
Graduate student Mike Larkin and the Florida Keys
Guides Association collected about 175 dead bonefish as

big as 11 or 12 pounds from the Key Largo shoreline, said
University of Miami fish scientist Jerald Ault.
"The bulk of the kill never made it to shore. The car-
nage was relatively widespread," Ault said. "In addition, my
technical assistant Bruce Ungar (a tarpon guide in Stuart)
brought us 25 tarpon to about 39 inches and 20 pounds
from the St. Lucie area. These fish don't like water temper-
atures below 50F. It's lethal."
The kills compelled two unusual executive orders from

Fishing guide: 'It was a river of death as far as I could see'


up dead fish, and allowed their removal by any method.
Ordinarily that's poaching. The prohibition is meant to pro-
tect snook, which often are stunned by non-lethal cold
water and easily picked off the surface.
FWC didn't know yet precisely how bad the kills were,
but they were bad enough to take action before doing all the
complicated arithmetic. Rodney Barreto, chairman of FWC,
called it a pro-active, precautionary act.
"Extending the snook closed season and temporarily clos-
ing bonefish and tarpon fishing will protect surviving snook
that spawn in the spring and will give our research scientists
time to evaluate the extent of damage'," Barreto said.
It may not be a bad idea to also shut down the keeping
of butterfly peacock caught in southeast Florida's fresh
water. They took a bad beating too.
Far inland, scattered kills of peacock were described on
a message board at Bassresource.com in the first cold snap,
more in the second one.
Peacock guide Alan Zaremba told me about serious
losses in urban canals.
"I have seen many dead peacocks in the C-2 canal
(Snapper Creek) and a mix of red Midas and peacock in the
C-100 (Cutler Drain). The Everglades were hit very hard
with water temps making it down into the upper 40s in
some areas."
Peacocks begin dying when water temperature falls
below 60 degrees. Mayan cichlids die at 52, so if you see
dead Mayans you know any peacocks in that water are done
for, even if you don't see them.
Dead fish sink to the bottom and eventually float to the
surface, so it wasn't surprising that three days after the sec-
ond chill ended Zaremba saw many dead and dying pea-
cock and Mayans on the Biscayne (C-8) Canal, which runs
from Miami Shores to 1-75 in Miami Lakes.
"Fish were dying left and right, all the way to the
Palmetto Expressway," he said. "The further west I went, the
more dead fish I saw, so we pulled out and went to Alligator
Alley. We caught 120 largemouth bass out there."
Shane Procell, a largemouth bass guide, took a scout-
ing trip even further west to the Big Cypress National

site Bassrsource.com:
"I was shocked to see literally thousands of dead
tilapia, oscar and cichlid floating south. It was a river of
death as far as I could see. The fish kept popping up off the
bottom like corks."
On the same forum, Dwight Hottle of Erie, Penn.
reported from Islamorada that, "The cold front has caused
a massive die-off of tarpon, snook & bonefish throughout
the Everglades and Florida Bay. Water temps down to 40
degrees before the wamnnup started."

long, angular freshwater canal that you could swim upland,
if you're a fish, to the junction of the Dolphin Expressway
(State Road 836) and the Florida Turnpike.
Not if you're a saltwater fish. From Biscayne Bay you'd
only get as far as a dam in the 11000 block of Red Road.
For some fish, that was far enough inland for survival.
Plenty were swimming around on my first Thursday there,
Jan. 7, after a week that was cold enough to kill some fish
but not en masse.
I saw many snook, some of pretty impressive size, from
the dam on down. There were schools of little barracuda,
jacks, needlefish, mangrove snapper and some mullet.
With the tide beginning to rise and a headwind build-
ing, the canoe and I decided not to struggle out to the flats
that day. We wanted to go again on the next morning's out-
going tide, but the incoming cold front stared us down. We
blinked and backed off.
In the next six days, with morning temperatures on the
back porch in the 30s, no serious fisherman had to guess
what was going on in the water, salt or fresh.
On the following Thursday the weather broke.
Again, the first quarter-mile below the dam was full
of active fish, but nothing was moving down-
stream.
Herons, gulls and other seabirds stood on the
rocky north bank, perched on mangroves across
the way and flew across the water, searching with
me but not dipping a beak into the water.
A week earlier, some of the numerous snook
swimming beside the mangroves looked big
enough to tow me and my canoe to Key Biscayne.
This time I saw only a few needlefish down there.
4 Nothing was after them.
I dipped a finger in the water. Cold, I said. I
dipped a thermometer. Sixty, it said. Liar, I thought.
When the flat to the south of the canal mouth came
into view, I was grateful to be upwind. Birds tiptoed
among the dead, pecking at them.
The tide was rising, going back to the dam. I caught that
ride, taking a window seat on the mangrove side of the canal,
looking for fish I might have missed on the way down.
They weren't there. I hoped they were all up at the dam.

Winter fishing: na
BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
According to natural law, the
more elaborate your preparations for
bad weather, the less necessary
they'll be.
Here's how that works: If you
go fishing without a ram jacket, it
will rain but if you bring one, it
won't rain. Go out early, dressed for
W cold, and by 10 a.m. your woolies
are drenched. See the fluid draining
through the scuppers? That's you, melting.
Therefore we print the following advice on cold-weather
fishing tactics for February, when everyone knows they're in
for a series of brutal cold fronts marching in waves as close as
a northwest wind can stack them.
You can beat that system, or you can let it beat you.
Our tips come from two sources. One is light-tackle
guide Mark Giacobba on how to find hookable fish in cold
weather as well as in the short warm spells in between.
The other is fishing author Bob Steams, whose advice is
long and detailed enough to require a careful and complete
reading on your own.
An article he wrote about the temperature preferences of
gamefish was published in "Salt Water Sportsman" magazine
10 years ago and updated in '03. Free on the magazine's web-
site, it includes a chart of temp ranges for 40 gainefish and 13
baitfish (see Up close).
Equally or more valuable is Steams' well-timed January
2010 report about cold fronts and how to interpret weather
maps to avoid bad fishing in the worst cold spells. Seeing that
story will cost you a subscription to the monthly fly fishing
newsletter '"Angling Report," published in Miami and circu-
lated internationally.
Let's snitch just a little of it.
"Fortunately for us anglers, not all cold fronts are creat-
ed equal," Steams wrote. "Some are strong and some are so
weak they pass with little effect...
"The trick of course is figuring out what type of front is
coming and when it will get to where you intend to be."
The article directs us to the National Weather Service's

rends, cold fronts
"Wintertime fishing in South Florida revolves around
warming trends and cold fronts, so the fishing can run hot and
cold with the weather.
"There are plenty of situations for you to capitalize on in
both cases.
During stable, warm weather most fish like snook, red-
fish, sea trout and tarpon tend to spread out more and feed
pretty good to fatten up for that next cold front when they may
not feed for several days.
"When we are in a cold snap, I find the fish really tend
to school up tight in areas that will hold more stable water
temperatures. These places usually have a consistent but mod-
est tidal flow and range from 5 to 8 feet in depth.
"Some of my best days fishing are during these cold
snaps. Even though it is cold and the fishes' metabolism has
slowed, the fish become very competitive when schooled up.
"Whether you are fishing on foot, a canoe or in a boat, a
temperature gauge can be a tremendous asset in finding these
productive spots."
Notice that Giacobba doesn't give us GPS coordinates or
names for the spots he's talking about. He found his own loca-
tions and makes his living off them. We have to find our own.
Anyone within range of an electric power plant's water
discharge area should try there first, but even that's not warm
enough in a double dose of cold as bad as Florida had in the
first two weeks of January.
Most species of cold-sensitive saltwater fish begin look-
ing for refuge in rivers and canals by the time water tempera-

Two kinds

of crewmen

BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront News Writer
'There are two kinds of people in this
world," observed humorist Robert
Benchley, "those who think there are two
kinds of people, and those who don't!"
Since this statement is as close to an
irrefutable truth as has ever been given, it
remains one of my favorites.
Though not as pithy, here's my person-
al observation:
'There are two types of crewmembers
- those who actually have the legal rights
they believe themselves entitled to, and
those who don't."
Seamen aren't always legally afforded
the "rights" they might believe they are enti-
tled to, particularly if they work on specific
types of vessels. This especially can be the
case for crewmembers of so-called yachts
and recreational vessels.
Historically, all seamen are afforded the
right of maintenance and cure (i.e. the right
to medical attention and comfort in times of
sickness or injury), as well as the right to a
scai ortli vessel. Generally, from these
original rights stem most of the others sea-
men might believe themselves entitled to.
In present day, a seaman's rights traces
back mainly to three sources: General mar-
itime law and related court decisions, feder-
al legislation in the U.S. Code (or, the laws
of another state that might have jurisdic-
tion), and international treaties and conven-
tions (such as the rules found in the
International Labor Organization).
Through statute and treaty, some
rights a seaman might be entitled to
include being given three nutritious meals
a day, a specified work and rest schedule,
scheduled paid vacations and the general
right to repatriation to their home port or
starting point of the voyage.
But to the misunderstanding of many,
not all seamen are actually entitled to these


statutorily created rights.
With a careful reading of either the
U.S. Code or the rules put forward by the
International Labor Organization (ILO), a
crewmember will soon learn that there are
some rather broad exceptions to those enti-
tled to the above-described rights most
noticeably crewmembers of yachts or recre-
ational vessels.
"Why the exception?" you might ask.
Well, there's several answers.
While yachts are arguably a part of
overall maritime commerce, they are not
generally considered "commercial trans-
port." In other words, their perceived pri-
mary function isn't moving cargo and/or
passengers from one point to another on
a set schedule.
The primary function of many of these
statutory entitlements is to assure industrial
standards for a fit crew to "ply the trade" in
a commercial world market.
In contrast, yachts and recreational
vessels were understood to have a far
more lax schedule with fewer actual voy-
ages that do not necessarily keep to par-
ticular routes for the purpose of com-
merce and transport. In this regard, such
crewmembers were excepted from set
rules since the requirements don't appear
particularly applicable to the "yachting
way" of doing things.
On the other hand, as I'm sure a
yacht crewmember might comment,
while these exceptions are designed to
give yacht crews greater flexibility, they
can also lead to conflict regarding the
treatment of a crew by a master or owner
who might abuse this flexibility.
That was less of a concern when
yachters were a smaller community. But
in a world that now contains mega yachts
larger than World War II battleships, it

Boat parade

snafus

BY BOB E. SHERMAN
Waterfront News Columnist
I've probably seen about one third of
the Winterfest boat parades from different
vantage points.
The best location was behind a friend's
condo on the Intracoastal just north of
Commercial Boulevard. The worst time -
something I felt I had to do once was
when I took my own boat and anchored
north of the 17th Street Causeway.
Watching the parade from your own
boat is an all day affair. You must arrive
early to get a good spot and before the
Intracoastal is closed down for the parade.
I set two anchors. There is no point in
getting comfortable on one anchor as you
will swing just as the parade starts and miss
all the action.
There is, of course, always one boat in
the area that sets one anchor and swings per-
ilously close to you. I was all settled in with
our stem facing the parade route when I
noticed that we were getting closer to the
boats nearby. I assumed that they were drag-
ging anchor as this wouldn't happen to an
expert like me.
Not a minute too soon, I realized that it
was my boat dragging. The boat off my bow
had dropped anchor and his rudder had
caught my rode and pulled the anchor out. I
sounded my horn and starting yelling a few
words that my mama didn't teach me and
got his attention.
I was not in the mood for swimming
so it was a good thing that he stepped up
to the plate and assumed responsibility.
The captain jumped into the water and
released my anchor rode.
Within minutes I had reset my anchor
and was back to watching the decorated
boats. At the end of the parade, it was deci-
sion time again. Should I wait for the other
boats around me to leave or should I pull
anchor and beat the rush?


I then made my second mistake of
the day the first was taking my boat.
As I pulled out of the crowded anchorage
in the dark, I just missed snagging sever-
al anchor rodes. I managed to make my
way into the Intracoastal just as every-
thing came to a standstill.
Port Everglades had been closed during
the parade and we had to wait for several
cruise ships to leave. As I jockeyed to main-
tain my position, all the small boats cut in
and around the larger boats to get ahead.
Imagine being at a convention of BUI (boat-
ing under the influence) drivers. We man-
aged to return home without incident.
The following year I watched from a
friend's boat. It was less nerve racking and
I could drink more beer.
This year I watched the parade from
the Hall of Fame Marina along with several
boats from my yacht club. The marina had
a two-night minimum, as do most marinas
along the parade route. However, the rates
were reasonable and dock master Scott
Salomon provided a good assortment of
munchies for the guests.
When I made the reservation I asked
for good weather. I guess they missed
that part. We watched the parade from
the docks on a slight angle. The better
view would have been from the west face
dock but a 120-foot yacht was docked
there blocking our view.
The owner could plainly see how
uncomfortable we were in our folding
chairs drinking domestic beer, but he didn't
invite us aboard. I know I would have
offered if the roles had been reversed.
Grand marshals were Alonzo
Mourning and Kim Kardashian, who was
billed as a surprise celebrity. It was cer-
tainly a surprise to me I wouldn't have

Contracts could allay misunderstandings


can prove problematic to potential crewmembers.
At this juncture, it's best to fully understand the excep-
tions and insist on some form of a well-negotiated contract.
Such a contract can prove a benefit not only to the crew, but
to the master and owners as well. Contracts can be used as a
way of clearly defining responsibilities between the parties
and also preparing for certain contingencies, such as sched-
uled vacations and leave of absences.
Along with pay and scheduling, a contract should contain
a clear understanding regarding repatriation. While it is gen-
erally regarded as a right for most seamen, there are circum-
stances when it is not as clear.
For example, should a seaman be dismissed for
cause, most jurisdictions allow the vessel owner to deduct

recognized her if she was sitting in the folding chair next
to me. She is apparently a famous TV personality from
one of those reality shows that I don't watch.
Unless you are seated in the viewing stands with the
floodlights aimed at the marshals, you can't see who they
are anyway.
An exception was several years ago when Shaquille
O'Neal was the grand marshal. Since he is larger than life, I
actually recognized him.
I'll never forget when he passed our boat and he yelled
out "Ahoy, Bob E." Anyway, I was reading his lips, so I think
that's what he said.

the cost of repatriation from the seaman's last payment. It
also seems to be the decision of most courts (including
some foreign courts) that the unilateral resignation of a
seaman at a foreign port can cause the right of repatria-
tion to be forfeited.
There can also be conflicts in defining the seaman's
homeport, something that can be agreed upon via a contract.
Again, just one more issue that crewmembers should know.
Whether one is a crewmember of a yacht or recreation-
al vessel, or some form of commercial vessel, this is my
final observation:
There are two types of seamen: those who know their
rights and entitlements, and those who should.

Lauderdale's 17th Street bridge had lowly beginnings


This is the first column in an occasional series that
takes a look at the origins of South Florida's nautical
landmarks.
BY RICHARD JORDAN
Special to the Waterfront News
In 1925 a south side causeway was built in an area slight-
ly north of the current 17th Street bridge in Fort Lauderdale.
According to Merrilyn Rathburn, research director of the Fort
Lauderdale Historical Society, developers planned to connect
the bridge but never did.
"They built just the spans, not the approach ramps to the
bridge. The bridge was just out there in the Intracoastal unat-
tached to land," she said.
Then the 1926 hurricane blew through and the economy
collapsed. The hurricane badly damaged the bridge, leaving
mere remnants of construction out in the middle of the
Intracoastal a navigational hazard.
"And, it stayed like that for many years," Merrilyn
explained. '"A colorful aspect of Fort Lauderdale history. A
real bridge to no where."

First completed bridge
In the early 1950s as traffic increased on Las Olas
Boulevard, the City of Fort Lauderdale started planning a
south side bridge. Though Las Olas merchants worried about
the competition the bridge might bring, it was generally
agreed that growth was dependent on having access to the
southern end of the city.
The Commodore Brook Memorial Causeway, named for
a city founder, opened a month ahead of schedule in 1956.
The completed bridge was the finale of a long-held ambition
for the city, according to Fort Lauderdale Daily News reporter
Douglas McQuarrie.
"Today's monumental project, fully completed to

w ilh.tanid any hurricane is, in retrospect, a tribute to the
foresight of the developers in the mid 1920s before the
land boom bubble burst," he wrote in his column on
Friday, Feb. 24, 1956.
City officials wondered if the 28-foot clearance would be
enough. They worried about too many openings stopping traf-
fic. State law required fishing trawlers to have outriggers on
hinges to alleviate the worry. The concerns turned out to be
correct but boaters and motorists would manage to endure fre-
quent openings for the next 42 years.

Current Bridge
In the 1980s and '90s land and waterway traffic often bot-
tlenecked requiring bridge openings on every half and whole
hour. The situation became intolerable.
"We don't generally raise bridges," said Brian
O'Donoghue, assistant engineer for bridge Inspection at the
state Department of Transportation in Fort Lauderdale Office.

bridge after the congressman
who worked hard to fund the
project. But it's known locally
Sas the 17th Street bridge.






But the 17th street bridge was a special case.
In 1995 after 10 years of debate, three dozen local lead-
ers chose a contemporary, 55-foot clearance drawbridge.
Many lambasted the design as bulky. Others claimed the
keeled support structure would become a landmark like the
Golden Gate Bridge is to San Francisco.
Completed in 2002, her official name is the Clay E
Shaw Memorial, bridge after the congressman who worked
hard to fund the project. But it's known locally as the 17th
Street bridge.
"I'm biased I pass over twice a day But the new
bridge has really helped. It opens on the same half and hour
as the old bridge but if no boats are waiting, it doesn't open."
The DOT estimates she will last over 60 years. So far,
these three bridges span the history of the 17th Street
causeway.

The closer they can get to water of 70 degrees or high-
er, without much variation from day to day, the better it is
for us. Where fish find a comfortable, fairly consistent
temperature, that's where we are most likely to find them
in groups.
Then and there, even though the cold has diminished
their appetites, competitive spirits drive the shivering sur-
vivors to race to your bait. You can almost hear them yelling
- Me first! Me first!
Want simpler answers? There aren't many. We'd like one
for why some cold-sensitive fish snook in particular, though
not all snook swim into canals and rivers where they have a
chance to survive, while others drop dead in the shallows right
alongside those same escape openings.
In January's case, one logical explanation is that after the
first strong cold front cooled the waters to marginal surviv-
ability, there wasn't enough time for a warmup before the
much colder second front.
We asked two leading fish scientists about it.
Jerald Ault of the University of Miami said the doomed
fish were likely late seeking safety. By the time they arrived,
channel entries were blocked by impassable temperatures.

"The channels may have been colder than the flats as the "We have a lot to learn about snook and cold water,"

sure. It gives people a chance to look at real numbers and what
it takes to get out on the water."
One example the center uses is that people can get sev-
eral months of boating for almost the same cost as one week-
end at a theme park in Orlando, Aiello said.
Frank Herhold, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association of South Florida, is another fan of the
exhibition. 'There's never been a better time to buy a boat.
Boating is as affordable as a second car."
More people may be returning to boating as the economy
slowly mends. "In talking to MIASF members, in most cases
every month seems to be getting a bit better," he said. 'There
clearly is a light at the end of the tunnel."
