Boater reaction subdued after manatee proposals

A no-wake zone on Intracoastal off Oakland Park
Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale where boats must
maintain idle speed. Broward County manatee zones are
now being reviewed. They are expected to tighten in
some areas, and possibly be eased in others.


BY JENNY FUENTES
Waterfront Times Writer
Boater reaction after an initial public hearing on possible
speed zone changes to protect manatees in Broward waters
has been strikingly tame.
About 20 people attended the early August hearing and a
dozen others submitted comments via e-mail. Of the 13 pro-
posals, 11 impact boat usage and manatee speed zones.
"I'm surprised by the lack of public response," said Dan
Yaffe, chair of the local rule review committee, a county-
appointed group studying the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's proposed changes.
Changes to manatee restrictions has the potential to spark
contention in the boating community since it directly affects
posted speed limits, and could expand and decrease no-wake
zones along the Intracoastal Waterway.
So far the response or lack of it may indicate
boaters' acceptance for manatee protection zones. Manatee
supporters hope it may also mean an increased sensitivity to
the gentle marine mammals that often appear as large logs
lolling about in the tides.
FWC officials say education may attribute to the shift in
boater mentality.
"In the general sense I would say boater awareness is
more now than it was in the early '90s," said Scott Calleson,
FWC fisheries and wildlife biologist.


Educational efforts have been ongoing since 1993 when
the last speed protection zones were put in place. Boaters'
concerns for no-wake zones and noise regulations tend to go
hand-in-hand with manatee protection zones, Calleson added.
Katie Tripp, director of science and conservation for Save
the Manatee Club, said boater acceptance for manatee protec-
tion programs is much greater in Broward than in areas where
manatee speed zones are just now being adopted, such as
Flagler County.
"I think boaters in general are supportive of manatees.
The line in the sand comes down to, 'I like manatees,' but the
difference is where that 'but' comes in," Tripp said.
At the Lauderdale Small Boat Club, located along the
Dania Cutoff Canal, Commodore Dean Birmingham said
boaters are mindful of manatee zones because of the fines
imposed for violating them.
"I think the manatee zones have been expanded, right-
fully and wrongfully so, to protect the manatees,"
Birmingham said.
He added that the speed zones have protected more than
manatees wakes also impact dock slips and boats.
"With the growth factor, especially along the water, there
had to be some rules for the manatees and the general popu-
lation to slow things down," Birmingham said.
"We don't know if the impact fees are justified," he said

Organizing mooring buoys in Biscayne a safety priority


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront Times Columnist
MIAMI Listening to Mark Lewis describe boater raft-
ups in Biscayne National Park might convince you never to go
there on weekends. If you have a suppressed rowdy streak, it
might make you think what fun it would be to go anyway, just
once, to see what you're missing.
"On a Saturday or Sunday there are so many boats out
there by 3:30 or 4 in the afternoon and the beer's kicking in
and fights start," said Lewis, park superintendent.
"We can't even get rangers in there to break up a fight or
rescue the individual who got injured. There should not be so
many boats there that they can't get in and do their job."
Lewis was trying to make a case for organized, limited
fields of mooring buoys at Stiltsville, Sands Cut and other
locations in the park with anchoring allowed only in the
field at Billy's Point near the southern end of Elliott Key.
"The intention is to put in as many buoys as we reason-
ably can, and to let our officers get in there when they need
to," he said.
Other than strictly managed mooring fields, the plan adds
squawk-proof improvements to the park. The best is an
almost-fence of "pencil" buoys surrounding east Featherbed
Bank, one of the worst examples anywhere of harm done by
propeller scars and groundings.
It's an easy solution to a major problem, and should have
been done in the 20th century. It will disqualify all alibis for
running aground there and allow Featherbed to begin re-
growing its seagrasses.
The plan also adds long-needed navigational markers and
informational signs (park boundaries, manatee protection
zones, etc.), an enhanced Marine Heritage Trail of reef ship-
wrecks for divers and park regulation notices at Crandon Park


and Black Point marinas.
Hallelujah. Hugs and kisses for all of that.

Public enjoyment
As for mooring buoy fields with strict limits, the plan pre-
sented by Lewis and his resource management chief, Elsa
Alvear, will sharply curtail rafting, beaching and anchoring at
Sands Cut, the Coral Shoal area in Stiltsville and other popu-
lar locations, with limits not yet determined.
It will greatly increase the number of mooring buoys -
there are only 23 now in the whole park and boaters are not
required to use them at inshore gathering spots and along
the offshore Marine Heritage Trail of historic shipwrecks.
When all the buoys are in use, other boaters will still be
able to anchor but at some specified distance from the moor-
ings, Lewis said.


Photo/NATIONAL PARK SERVICE
Raft-ups like this, typical of
a summer weekend in Biscayne
National Park, won't be allowed
when a plan for organized
mooring buoy fields is enacted
there next year.






He was talking to an audience of skeptics, worried that
they will arrive some day next winter to find all the buoys
occupied, one boat to a float and many more competing for
next-in position.
It's easy to envision what that could mean on a typically
crowded summer weekend.
"I think the plan goes too far," said Juan Badel of Miami.
"It's going to keep out quite a few people. There's hundreds
of boats in the Sands Cut area. All the buoys are tied up and
what are you gonna do?"
Good question. What do you do, wait in line? Where?
Who gets the next vacancy?
It wouldn't take many beers to brew a fight in that saltwa-
ter saloon.

'Modest' hotel, new camping sites on the table for Flamingo


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront Times Columnist
Among all the good things about a trip to the Flamingo
outpost of Everglades National Park, there's only one bad
thing: no place to stay overnight unless you enjoy camping.
Late summer is a bad time for that if you're not immune
to mosquito bites. The sand flies, or no-see-ems, are liable to
be so thick you can see 'em and even inhale 'em.
A National Park Service plan four years in the making
foresees civilized overnight lodging a 30-unit motel, two
dozen cottages, 20 semi-permanent wall tents, swimming
pool, restaurant and more for the first time since 2005.
Before the 2005 hurricane season, when Katrina
wounded the old overnight facilities and her ugly sister
Wilma finished them off, the old accommodations weren't
first class, but reputedly were tolerable. Constructed in the
late '50s, they were non-compliant with then lenient build-
ing codes. The new facilities will be elevated, built for flood
and hurricane resistance, according to a plan made public in
mid-August.
It looks attractive, though rustics may fuss that the area of
semi-permanent "eco-tents" seems a little over-organized,
with campsites closely spaced and the long-stemmed sabal
palms between them too slender for privacy.
Those and other campsites will sit along a bayfront trail
that will include a place to launch kayaks and canoes.
The new facilities are to be designed more for shelter and
okay comfort, not luxury. The lodge proposal is described as
"modest hotel-like accommodations" with solar energy, ori-
entation for bay views and passive ventilation.

Lessening congestion
It could be argued that the cottages, set up close to the
lodge as duplex pairs and elevated over under-parking, some
with wheelchair access, would be nicer singly than doubly, and
should be scattered in a more wilderess-like setting.
A counter-argument would say grouping the cottages
close to the facilities that tenants will use will reduce auto traf-
fic and the sprawl of Flamingo's developed area. Those goals
received a lot of support when preliminary versions of the

When the Flamingo outpost of Everglades National Park is rebuilt, it will still have old-fashioned campgrounds like
this. One will be for tent campers and another for recreational vehicles but the highlights will be a new motel-
style lodge, restaurant, cottages and clusters of semi-permanent tents you can rent.


plan were presented at public workshops in 2007 and '08.
To prevent traffic congestion in a developed area about 50
acres smaller than it used to be, the plan calls for walking and
bicycle paths, plus a shuttle system connecting destinations.
The final version is an amalgam of those presented earli-
er plus input from Everglades fans, most of them fishermen
who angle Florida Bay and the back country from Flamingo.
When it will move from documents to reality isn't
known. The most optimistic estimate is sometime in 2013, but
not all at one time. The closest thing to a confident timetable
now is that the Flamingo plan will move some time next year
into a long-term general management plan for the park.

More than motels
Because of the potential cost, presently estimated at $93
million, the proposal calls for six phases of development.
The first phase would include about half the eco-tent

area, roadways, bike trails, maintenance facilities and housing
for concessioners and park staff. The second phase would fin-
ish those projects, now estimated to cost $32 million.
Phase three would be to rehabilitate and update the visi-
tor center area ($8 million). The lodge, restaurants more road
and trail work ($15 million) would be fourth. The redesigned
marina with new buildings, the eco-tent area and group camp-
ing sites are shown as phase five ($15 million).
Finally would come the upgrading of existing camp-
grounds for tents and recreation vehicles and the restoration of
former building sites (lodge and cottages) to wetlands and
hammocks ($8 million).
Timetabling those projects now would be pointless, for
there is no one to run the lodge, cottages, restaurant and other
commercial facilities.
The most difficult problem to solve could be finding pri-

No-wake speed zones also help protect docks, slips


---- iM Ea l --
of the $20 annual fee for those homeowners with five or more
dock slips. Additionally, there is a $400 per slip fee for
expanding and constructing new marine facilities, according
to the Broward County Manatee Protection Plan.
Boaters themselves don't seem too bothered by the
potential changes. In some cases, such as along the
Intracoastal from the Palm Beach County line to Burnham
Point, located just south of Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale -
restrictions actually ease.
Gulfstream Sailing Club Commodore Astrid Hunton said
she hasn't heard a lot of complaints from members, since sail-
boats typically can't go over 7 knots. She said powerboaters
in their ranks also tend to be pretty cautious.
"More of the issue we have is casual boaters who don't
get out much, and don't know the rules," Hunton said. "We're
always watching out for things, we can see them on the water,
and we try to avoid them."
Last winter, Hunton said she noticed boaters in gener-
al were more careful after a surge in manatee migration to
the south due to unusually cold temperatures. According to
a Broward County aerial survey taken in February, as
many as 913 manatees were counted. By comparison, just
one month later in March, only 38 manatees were cited
during the survey.
Potential changes are still months away.
The committee will present its report to the FWC in
September. In January the FWC will deliver its formal pro-
posal. Public hearings will be held early in the year, with the
FWC rolling out its final decisions by June 2011.

Possible manatee speed zone changes
There are 11 possible changes that could directly impact
Broward County boaters. Here is a breakdown.

North Broward County
*Hillsboro Canal: Make the entire canal a year-round,
shore-to-shore slow speed zone.
*Hillsboro Inlet: Make the current cold season slow
speed zone effective year-round.
*ICW, from Palm Beach County Line to Marker


"68A:" Increase the current cold season slow speed zone
from weekend only to seven days a week.
*ICW, from NE 14th Street to Atlantic Ave. or
Commercial Boulevard: Increase the current cold season
slow speed zone from weekend only to seven days a week.
*ICW, from the Palm Beach County Line to Burnham
Point: Lift the warm season manatee protection zone.
Another option is to change the area to a 25 mph zone.
*Entrance to Pompano Canal/Cypress Creek: Include
this area, which currently has no zones, with the area
directly east, which would make it a slow speed, weekend-
only zone. This would lump the Pompano Canal in with
any possible changes for the Icw at Burnham Point and
along Atlantic Avenue, mentioned above.

Port Everglades
*Port Everglades Power Plant Discharge Canal: Make
the east-west portion of the canal part of the no entry zone
during the warm season.

South Broward County
*South of Dania Beach Boulevard, to the west of the
Icw: Make the current cold season slow speed zone effec-
tive year-round.
*South of Dania Beach Boulevard to the Miami-Dade
County Line: Lift the warm season manatee protection
zone, or possibly lift the zone altogether. Another option
is to change the area to a shore-to-shore 25 mph zone.


Inland areas
*Fort Lauderdale Inland Power Plant cooling ponds:
Reduce the year-round no entry zone to be effective only
in the cold season. As of now, the boating public does not
have access to this area, so the year-round rule is not nec-
essary.
Weekend and holiday rule change
*Current weekend-only manatee speed zones do not
include holidays. The FWC has proposed to include holi-
days to these zones.

Manatee mortality at a glance
Since 2005, total manatee deaths: 71
Watercraft-related deaths: 16
In 2010 18 Manatee Deaths
7: cold stress
6: undetermined
3: perinatal
1: watercraft-related
1: Other
Chairman Dan Yaffe, Local Rule Review Committee:
"We have a very high level of compliance and at the same
time a very, very low level of mortality. I think that's a tes-
tament to the folks that drafted the original manatee regu-
lations. Very rarely do we see anyone grossly violating any
of the manatee zones."

Flamingo additions to be developed in phases


vate concessionaires to partner with the National Park Service
in paying for those facilities and then operating them at a
profit, hopefully without charging inaccessible prices.
The plan found a way to reduce the cost of keeping the
lodge open through the summertime. It envisions two build-
ings, making it comparatively easy to close one in low season.
Unless you live in or near Homestead and Florida City,
you have to like driving a lot or tolerate it well to fish at


Flamingo. No mater where you come from, once you get off
the Turnpike at the south end it's another hour's ride to
Flamingo less time if you speed, more if you're caught.
At the end of the day if you don't camp or you can't, you
either go home or stay at a motel in Homestead. Nothing
wrong with that, except that it means another hour or so on the
road back to Flamingo the next morning and later another
hour back to Homestead before heading back home.

State moves to next phase in replenishing winter fish kill


BY ARNOLD MARKOWITZ
Waterfront News Fishing Columnist
Making emergency rules to
cope with the cold weather kill that
wiped out hundreds of thousands of
Florida snook in January was easy
just extend the no-harvest season
temporarily. But now that tempo-
rary period is almost over, the state's
next move looks harder to decide.
During its Sept. 1-3 meetings,
the Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission will consider four options offered by its marine
fisheries staff.
That outfit favors Option C. Here's what it suggests:
First, wait for expiration of the current emergency clo-
sure, which delays the open season from Sept. 1 until Sept.
17. Then revert to standard regulations, starting a shortened
open season to close as scheduled Dec. 1 on the Gulf coast,
Everglades National Park and the Keys, and Dec. 15 on the
east coast.
Next, instead of reopening next winter's snook harvest
season on Feb. 1 (east) and March 1 (west), keep it closed
all the way through to next Sept. 2 in order to protect
spawning fish.
The Division of Marine Fisheries and its Fish &
Wildlife Research Institute, where snook research is done,
recommended that plan in mid-August.
It also gave commissioners three other options, less
precautionary or more so. The report's authors, Gil McRae
and Jessica McCawley, explained the preferred choice.
"Staff makes this recommendation primarily based on
available data indicating that the fishery was very robust going
into the freeze. While there clearly were effects on the popu-
lation, we believe the fishery is healthy enough to rebound.
"Having a brief harvest season this fall will also allow
FWC to collect valuable information on the adult popula-
tion through our normal harvest sampling and it will pro-
vide some harvest opportunity for anglers."
How will snook fishers see the choices?
"Waterfront Times" asked Rick Roberts, executive direc-
tor of The Snook Foundation, based in Sarasota. The organi-

Ung


zation is a busy activist for snook and the sportspeople who
value it.
Roberts said the foundation won't stick up for any one
option, but will present results of its own data collection
and the views of its members.
Those views seem likely to be against Option D, which
would close snook-keeping seasons all the way to next
September. Option B, to extend the present closure until
next year's scheduled open season on Feb. 1, isn't made for
popularity either. Option A would be a return to standard
scheduling after Sept. 17.
"As far as we know...a biological reason to close the
remainder of the season this fall is not indicated," Roberts
said. "That's going to be a big issue because there is a lot of
emotion on both sides of the question."
As he spoke, data were still arriving at the website
www.snookfoundation.org/data/html.
"We have had many hundreds of hours of effort by
snook anglers from around the state recorded since the end
of May," Roberts said.
We also asked the opinion of conservationist Peter
Frezza, a fishing guide in the Upper Keys and Everglades
National Park, who's also a research director for the
Tropical Audubon Society.
"I think based on ;\ .iil.lle science, the staff chose a


good option," Frezza said. "The data show exactly what I
have heard too from around the state."
He wishes the national park would deal unilaterally with
its own part of the snook kill, worst in the southern portion.
Nobody can say exactly how many snook were killed
in January's two-week blast of cold, but researchers speak
of hundreds of thousands.
According to senior snook scientist Ron Taylor, quoted
on The Snook Foundation's website:
"We have pretty good estimates that at least 200-
300,000 snook perished in 10 short days in January, 2010.
Our normal annual harvest is about 75-100,000 snook. It
looks like we lost several years' harvest in about a
month...We think east coast mortality was 25 percent and
West coast was over 30 percent."
Juveniles, the most vulnerable segment of the snook
population, typically inhabit mangrove forests in shallow
estuaries where they could not be seen when they died.
Many fish sank to the bottom in deeper waters before any-
one could observe them.
State snook scientist Luiz Barbieri told "The Miami
Herald" that fish spawned and born last year had the lowest
abundance rate score in 15 years.
How do they know all that? Not alone from sightings.
Using scientifically acceptable counting methods, dead fish
afloat in vast masses can be estimated with believable accuracy,
but there must have been many more than the visible victims.

Maritime liabili

and its limits

BY MARK ERCOLIN
Waterfront Times Law Columnist
How much do you think Leo
DiCaprio's life is worth?
I'm really talking about the life of Jack
Dawson, the character DiCaprio played in
the movie 1 II.Ieii I'll leave it to the crit-
ics to decide the value of the actor's life.
If your answer was only a few hun-
dred dollars, you'd be essentially correct.
And this isn't because Jack Dawson was
just a poor Irish artist. Had Kate
Winslet's wealthy character perished, her
life would have been valued the same
dollar amount by the courts. The reason
is due to a maritime doctrine called "lim-
itation of liability."
This doctrine is designed to allow ves-
sel owners (and in some instances agents
and charterers) the right to go before the
courts after a maritime incident and peti-
tion the courts to limit any liability for
claims against them to the value of the ves-
sel based on its post-incident valuation.
So a sunken boat such as the Titanic
would have very little value. Ironically,
most of it was based on the remaining
lifeboats of which there were too few.
The maritime tradition of a vessel
owner being able to limit liability to a set
value dates back well into ancient times
and was codified in the United States in
1851. It's based on the theoretical principle
that vessel owners themselves were not
generally controlling their vessels at the
time of an incident. Instead, what happens
to and aboard the vessel is in the hands of
the master, crew, other personnel and
encountering vessels, and acts of nature.
In keeping with this theory, the
owner is subject to potential loss as much
as others who might claim liability for an
incident caused by the actions of the ves-
sel and/or its crew. This view is also
shared by companies that insure vessels


for liability, which they might not do if
this limitation doctrine was not recog-
nized by the courts.
Now, before you begin to think that this
doctrine is completely owner-friendly, you
should know that there are legal hurdles that
create limitations to the limitations.
First of all, limitation of liability is
not :;\.iil.ible to vessel owners who had
inside knowledge of the negligence or
unseaworthiness creating the liability. In
recent years, courts have become far
more liberal in finding an owner with
privity and knowledge concerning their
vessels and maritime events.
This proved a rather important point in
the Exxon Valdes matter. Among other
things, liability was established against the
owners by showing they had knowledge of
the captain's drinking problems before that
infamous accident and oil spill. In fact, the
case created a new modern hurdle for own-
ers when invoking limitation of liability.
Following the Exxon Valdes inci-
dent, Congress passed legislation remov-
ing the ability of vessel owners from gen-
erally limiting their liability resulting in
most loses caused by pollution. (Note:
concerns over the Gulf of Mexico oil
spill being subject to Draconian meas-
ures preventing payment to victims is
probably unfounded and premature.)
It should also be noted that vessel
owners generally have a finite window
for invoking or petitioning for limitation
after claims come forward. But there still
remains times when invoking the limita-
tion of liability can be a detriment to a
claimant's proper collection for losses.
Hypothetically, let's say you're one of
six passengers aboard a vessel worth
$5,000. The boat owner has no secrete

Reckoning



Oil changing

or insanity


BY BOB E. SHERMAN
Waterfront Times Columnist
Albert Einstein said, "The definition of
insanity is doing the same thing over and
over again and expecting different results."
Rumor has it that he came to this con-
clusion after changing the oil in his boat. On
the other hand, in the world of boating,
Murphy's law trumps any Einstein theory.
Several other well known axioms
have come from boating: Roseanne
Roseannadana once said, "it's always some-
thing." You may remember Clint Eastwood
as the gunnery sergeant in "Heartbreak
Ridge," when he told his marines to "impro-
vise, adapt, and overcome." The quote actu-
ally originated from the movie "Blood
Work" where Clint, as an FBI agent, was
planning to retire and live on his boat.
My first boat was a 32-foot Blackfin
with Crusader engines. I changed the oil
using a hand pump attached to the dipstick.
Soon I went high tech and bought an elec-
tric pump. Either way, using the dipstick
tube always leaves some oil in the pan.
A mechanic changed the oil in my first
diesel engine boat. The oil change system
was not working. Not to mention that each
engine holds 5 gallons of oil. The weight of
oil seems to increase with age. My age.
After replacing my oil change pump, I
changed the oil myself to save a few dollars.
Disposing of oil is the biggest hassle. I
docked my Blackfin at the Hollywood
Marina, and disposed of the oil.
To prove Einstein wrong, with each oil
change, I expect different results: i.e. it will
go smoothly or get easier hence my
boating insanity. The acronym GPS helps
me keep the valves straight on the oil
change pump. The first valve is G for gen-
erator. For my last oil change I proceeded to
drain the generator, which holds 1 gallon of
oil. After I had drained about 2 gallons into


my bucket, I figured something wasn't
quite right, unless you believe in miracles.
I checked the oil stick; the oil line
hadn't moved. Then the starboard engine.
Guess what? I had only planned on chang-
ing the genset and port engine and couldn't
put the old oil back, so I finished draining
the starboard engine. After working the G
valve a little, I managed to drain the genset.
The next part should be easy. Just put
the hose in a fresh can of oil and reverse the
switch. After pumping one gallon, I
checked the dipstick. Another miracle, the
stick was bone dry. I began to think that I
was not going to have a good day.
I finally got new oil into the genset and
starboard engine. While draining the gener-
ator oil, I remembered what Roseanne
Roseannadana said. This would explain
why the oil was a gray milky color. After
rebuilding the water pump the next day, I
would replace the oil again. No worries,
mate, I had plenty of practice.
So off I went to dump the oil and buy
more for the port engine. I usually drive to
Fort Lauderdale to buy oil in a 5 gallon pail.
Few auto parts stores carry them. But if you
can find them, they're usually a lot cheaper
than marine stores.
I opted to buy oil in 1 gallon containers
locally rather than driving to Fort
Lauderdale. The one hour round trip would
have saved me only $1.76. While still in my
thrifty mode I picked up a Fram oil filter at
one third the price of the official Westerbeke
filter. It works fine except that the Fram is
slightly taller than Westerbeke, and won't fit
unless I remove a bolt from the generator.
To avoid this problem on future
changes, I labored in the hot sun, cutting
the bolt down with a dull hacksaw blade.
Not to overstate the obvious, but the
next time you change your oil, don't ask me
for advice.

New park plans don't directly address fishing issues


"If you put up these mooring buoys and there's no law
enforcement there, they'll be anchoring all over the place,"
Rod Dickinson of Coral Gables predicted.
He had a point too. Existing regulations allow only one
boat per buoy, forbid rafting at buoys and require 100-foot
spacing between vessels that are anchored or beach-grounded
on sandbars. In practice, exceptions rule and rangers have
trouble getting to the interior of a boat janm
Lewis faced these issues at public meetings in Florida
City and Miami, on consecutive August evenings. He didn't
find any easy answers between Tuesday and Wednesday.
He reminded people (about 40 in Florida City and 30 in
Miami) of the National Park Service's dual mission to keep
the park open for public enjoyment while preserving and pro-
tecting its natural resources.
"Quite honestly it's hard to do both of those things at the
same time," he said. Some of this stuff is going to be a chal-
lenge. There will be changes and modifications that need to
take place...If this isn't the right solution I'd ask you to help us
figure out what the right solution is."
The planning schedule calls for consideration of public
commentary, which closes Sept. 3, followed by further revi-
sions. A "decision document" should be published some time
next winter.
The plans don't directly address fishing issues, one of the
concerns raised when the idea for mooring fields was first put
before the public last July. We were against designating fields
so large or so numerous that they effectively prevented fish-
ing.
Indirectly, the plans presented in August foretold little
interference with fishing except for the reasonable prohibition
of anchoring at mooring buoy fields, especially those over the
reef shipwrecks on the Maritime Heritage Trail.


-CI


That feature has been out there along the reef line all
along, undermarked and underutilized. Six shipwreck sites are
designated as archeological resources, but only three have
mooring buoys, no more than five at any site.
The rest are hard to find, and all are vulnerable to break-
age by anchoring. Fishing-doers do that, not knowing what
their anchors hit. Divers do it too, dropping and hauling and
looking below until they find the wreck. In the plan's current
mid-development stage, it envisions mooring buoys at all the
sites, set in hard-bottom grounds next to but not within the
shipwreckage.

Public comment closing
Better yet, the park will promote the Maritime Heritage
Trail as a diving destination. Interpretive information, maps,
dive cards diagramming the shipwrecks and underwater guide
signs will enhance the experience.
With anchoring forbidden on those sites, fishing boats
will have to troll or drift over the wrecks if their fish-finders
find fish there. There's little cause for complaint with all the
close-by patch reefs close at hand and available for anchoring.
One thing we don't like is the National Park Service's
too-short window for public comment, 30 days ending on
Sept. 3. Unless you're already familiar with it, you'd better
hurry to look it up online (see Up close), read fast and make
to-the-point suggestions.
Someone in the Miami audience last month suggested
that the buoy plan's enforcement costs might be paid for by
selling ads on the buoys to local businesses such as outboard
engine mechanics.
Why didn't anyone think of that before? For even big-
ger bucks, how about buoys proclaiming Sperry Topsiders
the park's official deck shoe and Mustad or Eagle Claw the
official fishhook? Think of Yamaha and Mercury bidding
frantically for rights to call themselves the park's official

Of course you're too sophisticated to fall for such market-

Not Superintendent Lewis. "It's an interesting idea, but
I'm old school" he said, not even smiling.

Adult snook fared better than young in last winter's freeze


For better accuracy, the FWC has seine monitoring sta-
tions for juvenile fish at four Gulf locations, one in the Keys
and three on the east coast. Its researchers analyzed snook
data from Tampa Bay, Charlotte Harbor and two Indian
River Lagoon sites where they have conducted monthly
snook surveys since 1996-97.
They say this year's January to June surveys indi-
cate that in general, the average number of juvenile
snook caught per seine haul was lower than historic
numbers in all four places. The most significant differ-
ences were in Tampa Bay and the northern Indian River
Lagoon location.
Data on adult snook are more favorable. Acoustic tags
that monitor their movements between the Sebastian and
Palm Beach inlets, plus recreational fishing surveys, show
that relocation rates at spawning sites after the fish kill were
a lot like the rates of previous years.
"This indicates that although adult snook were
impacted by the winter cold kill event a significant pro-
portion of spawning-sized fish survived to spawn," the
FWC report says.
A more nearly complete report reflecting the January
losses and the expected gains of this year's spawn should
come with the results of the state's next full-scale assessment
of the snook fishery, scheduled for the end of next year.

Limitation keeps maritime commerce competitive


knowledge behind an ensuing incident that causes each pas-
senger $2,000 in injury or damages. Should the owner suc-
cessfully invoke and maintain limitation, no single passenger
would get the full benefit for his or her loss.
As uncomfortable as this scenario sounds, it also indi-
cates why maritime liability insurance (for non-pollution
concerns) has not risen as drastically as other areas -
arguably keeping maritime commerce more competitive.

Broward's dredging projects aim to carve a niche for mega-yachts


BY BETH FEINSTEIN-BARTL
Waterfront Times Writer
The big dig is about to begin.
The Florida Inland Navigation District has been
working for several years to obtain permits for a trio of
proposed dredging projects along Broward County's
major waterways that will open passage to more mega-
yachts. The projects are hoped to give an economic boost
to South Florida's marine industry.
The agency is close to obtaining the required paper-
work for its first undertaking slated to start in 2011, cre-
ating a 17-foot deep path along the Dania Cut-off Canal.
The $5 million project will take six months and targets a
mile-long stretch, from the western end of Port Everglades
to U.S. 1.
Once completed, the newly dredged waterway will
allow access for boats up to 200 feet. The project is
expected to take six months, said David Roach, the dis-
trict's executive director.
Next up: another 17-foot deep dredging of the
Intracoastal Waterway, from 17th Street Causeway in Fort
Lauderdale to just north of the Las Olas Bridge. The proj-
ect, covering two miles and costing around $10 million, is
due to start in late 2011 depending on when permits are
obtained, Roach said.


Fl


The third project focuses on dredging the New River,
to Bradford Marine west of Interstate-95 and north to
Interstate-595. No date and dollar amount have been set.

Dredging will be
a big boon for
all marine businesses
along the canal.

Due to the tunnel, dredging is limited to 14 feet.
Because the Intracoastal, New River and Dania canal
connect, the completion of all three projects will greatly
benefit existing boatyards and marinas along the routes,
as well as the upcoming Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
"It will make Broward's waterways more mega-
yacht-friendly and allow marinas and boatyards to
expand their services," Roach said.
Presently, larger vessels have trouble navigating the


waters. Some can't make it.
"We get calls every day and have to turn away
clients," said Ken Imandi, vice president of Derecktor
Florida, at 775 Taylor Lane in Dania Beach.
The yard can lift up to 500 tons and haul vessels up to
181 feet, as long as the boat has a draft of less than 10 feet.
Plus, there's waits for high tide, Imandi said.
It hurts. "We're losing revenue," he said.
Dredging will be a big boon for all marine businesses
along the canal. "We'll be able to haul anytime," Imandi said
More water means more work for everyone and that
will make South Florida a more welcoming destination,
said Gordon Connell, director of association services for
the Marine Industry Association of South Florida.
As the fleet of luxury vessels expands worldwide, the
tri-county region has seen a dramatic increase in the
arrival of mega-yachts and crews. The economic impact
has the ability to grow, generating funds that benefit
everyone from mechanics to waiters at local restaurants,
according to a MIASF survey.
These are facilities with the capacity to offer services.
The dredging will make it possible, Connell said.
"There's definitely a multiplying affect," Connell
said. "The yards get work. Sub-contractors benefit. Crews
use local restaurants. It trickles across the industry."

Eddy helped wayward kayak escape Gulf oil disaster


BY BRYAN BROOKS
Special Correspondent
Anyone who wasn't living under the Third Reef off Fort
Lauderdale has heard about the mysterious 19-foot long
kayak lost off Grand Cayman in June, only to be spotted by a
boat captain off Key Largo in July floating upside down.
I knew about it because the boat captain and marine sur-
veyor who found it was my son, Mike Brooks.
After Mike told me the story, I wondered why the kayak
didn't have any oil on it. Wasn't the oil hemorrhage the heav-
iest in the Gulf of Mexico during June and July?
How did it get from South Sound, a small island off the
extreme southwest coast of Grand Cayman, and float up to
Key Largo, missing vast amounts of oil being pumped out
into the Gulf of Mexico every day? How far did it travel and
how close to the oil spill did the kayak get?
My quest for an answer took me to Louis Keiner, an asso-
ciate professor of physics and physical oceanography at
Coastal Carolina University in S.C. Using Google Earth and
NOAAs satellite images, Keiner was able to backtrack from
the day the kayak was lost, on June 26.
Kayak owner Sam Dawson told me he was about a half
to three-quarters of a mile offshore at about 4:30 p.m. that day.
The water was very rough and a strong wind was blowing
from the south, southeast.
Dawson's kayak was overturned by a rogue wave, which
also broke the kayak's tether attached to him. When Dawson
surfaced, he quickly realized getting the kayak back wasn't
going to happen. It was headed west toward the Yucatan
Channel, and he needed to head in the opposite direction,
quick. Forty-five minutes later he managed to reach the island,
but without the kayak.

Gulf Stream 101
Keiner offered me the amateur's quick course on the Gulf
Stream, a river within the Atlantic Ocean that flows clock-
wise. After its journey south down the west coast of Africa,
the Gulf Stream circles back west between the Windward
Islands, through to the Yucatan Channel and into the Gulf of
Mexico, where that river within the ocean is called a Loop
Current. The Loop Current remains clockwise and bulges
north toward the Gulf Coast of the United States.
Keiner showed me on the satellite image how the Loop
Current, continuing its clockwise rotation, runs south back
through the Gulf of Mexico and down into the Florida Straits.
Somewhere around there it's called the Gulf Stream again.
Okay, that was Gulf Stream 101, but how close did our
kayak come to the oil spill?
Once again Keiner showed me a satellite image of the
Gulf of Mexico taken during the time of the oil spill. Right on
top of the Loop Current, and keeping it from bulging too far
north, was a big ball of current spun off on its own, an eddy
approximately 200 miles across. That, Keiner explained, was
Franklin, a name given to the eddy by NOAA.
He showed me how Franklin blocked the Loop Current
from coming further north and closer to the Gulf Coast where
the oil was then hemorrhaging into the Gulf of Mexico. So the
eddy kept most of the oil boxed up near the Gulf Coast and
away from the Loop Current.
Keiner said he's pretty sure Franklin the eddy also
blocked the kayak from going further north toward the oil
spill. After leaving Dawson, he thought the kayak went into

the Yucatan Channel, just as the owner suspected.
Then it went around the west coast of Cuba, by now
being pushed by the Loop Current into the Florida Straits.
So the oil spill and the kayak never met. Keiner estimates
the kayak traveled about 900 miles, roughly 29 miles a day,
slightly more than a mile per hour.
Keiner estimated the closest the kayak came to the oil
spill was about 300 miles. And the kayak never got out of the
Loop Current into Franklin the eddy. That would have been a
whole different scenario. So Franklin kept our kayak south
and the oil north.

Time tells all
What if Franklin hadn't been there as a blocking device?
Keiner said the bulge in the Loop Current would likely have
gone north toward the Gulf Coast, possibly picking up some
of the oil and carrying it into the Gulf Stream.
But if the Loop Current goes north now, will it pick up
whatever oil is left and take it to into the Gulf Stream? Only
time will tell.
There is an eddy like Franklin that spins off the Loop
Current about 40 percent of the time, Keiner explained.
Looking at a satellite image of the Gulf of Mexico recent-
ly, he pointed out how the eddy is now getting weaker,
which will allow the Loop Current to wander further north.
If the oil spill came now, Franklin the eddy might not be
sitting there, north of the Loop Current, to block oil from
getting into the Gulf Stream. Timing is everything.
Because of the eddy, the story has a happy ending. The
kayak was picked up from Mike's backyard and shipped

south on a freighter to Dawson in Grand Cayman, ironically
by the same person who sold it to him two years earlier. Bruce
Gibson, from Venture Sports in Boca Raton, explained that
Joe Koger, the owner of Hyde Shipping, saw a newspaper arti-
cle about kayak and agreed to pay for the cost of shipping it
back to the owner on Grand Cayman.
It has to be pointed out here there is a small matter of ter-
minology involving the kayak. Purists call the vessel a surf ski
because it is designed to ride quickly over waves, much as a
surf board does. But even its owner calls it a kayak because it
has a self-sealing cockpit and a paddle.
Mike Brooks, the Key Largo boat captain who originally
spotted the kayak, had been 4 miles offshore exercising a
client's 43-foot Cabo Sportsfisherman. After looking for any
survivors, Mike notified the Coast Guard and towed the kayak
back to shore. Lieutenant Kara Lavin, Coast Guard Base Key
West, said a helicopter was dispatched from Miami and a boat
from their base in Islamorada went to the scene.
A computer search by the Coast Guard found the manu-
facturer, Fenn, in South Africa. They learned there were two
dealers for Fenn surf skis in the United States, one in Florida,
and one in California. Mike had taken a picture of the kayak
and given it to the Coast Guard. The dealer in California put
that picture of the kayak on their web site. Less than an hour
later, a friend of owner, Eddie Stafford, in Mauritius, an
African country off the east coast of Madagascar, spotted it
on-line and notified Sam Dawson on Grand Cayman.
The manufacturer in South Africa has a motto for the
kayak: "Fast and built to last." Be it surf ski or kayak, that
seems to fit the plucky little vessel.
