Serving South Florida's Coastal Neighborhoods NOVEMBER 2011 YEAR 2 ISSUE 5 "There are a number criteria that they use to classify a boat as at risk," Horning said. "Some of those include obvious signs of neglect or abandonment, missing hatches, significant barnacle growth, structural damage to the hull or deck and other things." Boats with bad paint jobs or minor neglect are not considered derelict. "It's not a crime to have an ugly boat," Horning said. "We're certainly not going to penalize anybody for cosmetic challenges." In St. Augustine, there were a number of derelict boats up until about a year ago. Sam Adukiewicz, the city's harbormaster, said cooperation between the FWC and local law enforcement agencies have helped clear up the problem. "We've been very pleased with the results," Adukiewicz said. "Getting these vessels documented through the database has been a big part of the process." Jack Grant, a full-time cruiser based out of Fort Lauderdale, said he's glad to see the massive effort to curtail the derelict boat problem. "The thing with these boat owners and I call them boat owners because they're not mariners by any stretch of the imagination is that they give the rest of us a bad name," Grant said. "They're irresponsible losers, as far as I'm concerned, and they should be held accountable. But it's important to realize that they don't represent a significant portion of the boating community. You know what they say about a few bad apples." Derelict vessels are subject to removal at the owner's expense, which can run anywhere from $1,000 to $100,000 depending on the size of the vessel. Owners who don't remove the vessels cited can be charged with a misdemeanor or even a felony, lose vehicle and vessel Fishing for permit ......................................... 3 Date-stuffed chicken .................................... 9 Admiralty Law 6€ Classifieds 14€ Event Calendar 10€ Galley 9€ Tide Table 11 BY DOUGLAS JORDAN For Waterfront Times Though the number of derelict boats in Florida's waterways have increased as the economy continues to spiral downward, a state official tasked with monitoring the problem said there's some good news. The state's At-Risk Vessel Program, launched last December, has been working to help prevent many vessels from going derelict. "Since the implementation of the program, we're seeing a lot of good results in terms of compliance," said Phil Horning, derelict vessel manager for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's division of law enforcement. "And we've had a lot of positive response from the various law enforcement agencies that have gotten involved." FWC officers collaborate with local law enforcement agencies to enter information about potential derelict vessels into a statewide database. When officers find a vessel that appears to be at risk of becoming derelict, they leave a courtesy notice in the form of a sticker on the boat. Officers then collect information about the vessel, photograph it and enter it into a statewide database. A letter is mailed to the registered owner. "This gives us an opportunity to establish communications with a vessel owner before the vessel becomes derelict," Horning said. "I'd say that better than 60 percent of the owners respond quickly and bring the vessel into compliance." Officially defined in Florida Statute 823.11, derelict vessels essentially are those that have been abandoned and allowed to deteriorate in public waters. Aside from being eyesores, derelict vessels can pose environmental, public safety and navigational hazards. Statewide, the FWC and other agencies have almost 500 active derelict cases, Horning said. "The sad reality is, with the economy such as it is, many people are walking away from boats because they no longer can afford to maintain them." Not surprisingly, the areas of the state where the boat-to-person ratios are the highest are where most of the derelict boats are being found. "The counties with the most abandoned boats are Miami-Dade, Monroe, Brevard, Pinellas and Hillsborough," Horning said. Horning said the FWC considers a vessel to be atrisk when it appears likely to reach a derelict condition and causes an officer to have just concern for its welfare. State program working to prevent derelict vessels SEE DERELICT BOATS | PAGE 4 Bus loop to take in the beach BY MARIA MERZEAU For Waterfront Times FORT LAUDERDALE Traveling from downtown to the beach, the Fort Lauderdale Bus Loop will transport people to nightspots while raising funds for local nonprofits. About 14 Sun Trolleys will be in operation for the upcoming event on Friday, Nov. 18. Participants will be able to ride the buses all night and receive a free drink at designated bars and restaurants along the route from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. In April 1,600 people took part. Attendance increased in June to over 1,800. The operation is funded by the state and City of Fort Lauderdale, "to help connect the downtown area with the beach area and basically imp rove the transportation system within the city," said John Haley, chairman and founder of the Fort Lauderdale Bus Loop. Last year the event raised about $150,000. Proceeds benefit the Riverwalk Trust, Jessica June Children's Cancer Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Covenant House Florida, the B roward County Gator Club and Jack & Jill Children's Center. Participants prepay $20 or pay $25 the day of the event. Check-in runs from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Las Olas Riverfront and Yolo Plaza. The actual event runs from 6 p.m. to midnight. The Fort Lauderdale Bus Loop fundraiser started in August, 2007. It has "become a great event and people look forward to it," said Genia Duncan Ellis, president and CEO of Riverwalk Trust, which oversees improvements such as benches, lighting and landscaping to the Riverwalk area. "It gives people the opportunity to learn about other parts of town that they may not normally sort of hang out in." Participants who are drinking are discouraged from driving after the event. Having a designated driver is advised, or utilizing another Fort Lauderdale icon the Water Taxi, which has 14 stops in Fort Lauderdale and four stops in Hollywood. In Fort Lauderdale the Water Taxi route runs on the Intracoastal and the New River throughout the year except on Christmas day. The company offers a "Cruise and Save" program where more than 50 restaurants, bars and attractions offer discounts when passengers show the Water Taxi ticket. "We are really trying to reach out to get more local South Floridians out on boats because the waterway is such an important part of who we are in this area and I think a lot of people out there don't realize this is a source that we have," said Erik Johnson, general manager.

Cordell Baum Jr., a Miami flyfishing guide whose 14-footer we're launching at Deering Point, mentions the croc and its lair, just off my left elbow. Stories like that are more fun in the dark than in daylight. I'm writing it at midnight, with Halloween sneaking up. Boo! I'm tempted to bet the croc story is a crock. Then again we're not so far from Turkey Point, where there are crocs, so I grant it a little measure of maybe. Deering Point, at Old Cutler Road and Southwest 173rd Street in Miami-Dade County, is a public launch site only for canoes and kayaks. It puts paddlers directly on the vast shallow flats of southern Biscayne Bay. At various times and in various conditions of weather, tide and time, there's good to great flats fishing north, south and east of us. The flats are wide, shallow and often productive for three miles north to Matheson Hammock Park. Biscayne National Park is almost wading distance to the south and reaches almost to the county line, with good flats all along the shoreline. We went thisaway or thataway. I'm not allowed to say exactly whichaway. Baum might be a little tighter with that type of info than others who earn their livings like this. "I don't take a lot of local people," he tells me. "I don't want them coming back with motorboats and spoiling my spots." The entire southern bay is hard-fished territory. Even so, it produces impressive bonefish and other grand game permit, tarpon, snook, even redfish for those who know just where and just when to look. Baum knows. That's one reason I'm fishing with him. Another reason is his rates, which he boasts are the best in Miami. He charges as little as $250 for an eight hour day on saltwater, $150 on freshwater. How? Because he guides with the canoe, a couple of kayaks and a foot no motorboat to pay for, maintain and insure, no gas costs except for his pickup truck. He also switches easily from saltwater to fresh and back not unique, but uncommon among guides. More than anything else, I like that Baum is a stubborn original who boasts that he does things the hard way, which really means his own way. It isn't always very hard; it just takes more work than the other guy's easy way. Usually it's worth it. The easy way, the conventional way, is okay but when it doesn't work you'd better have something else in your kit. Baum's kit contains only the something else. We agree before sunrise that we don't like the common flats-fishing procedure of staking out on a shoal, waiting passively and endlessly for the tail fin of a feeding fish to come into view. Unless we see something pretty soon, we both prefer the active approach, finding the fish if they don't find us. My way is to follow a shoreline, casting nearly constantly as I cover territory. Well, it was. "Don't cast," Baum tells me as he stands in the stern, poling the canoe. "It disturbs the water. The fish can sense it and they'll move before I see them." So he doesn't want me to cast until he sees something to cast at. That's also why he poles instead of paddling. It makes sense: My narrowest paddle is 53/4 inches wide, the widest 8-1/4. They move a lot of water to move the boat. Baum's pole is about an inchand-a-half thick, pushing off the bottom with minimal water disturbance. If you're covering much territory, as we are, the physical demand of that style is great. Baum poles us nearly five miles from Deering, knowing that when the wind rises later it will push us from behind going back. We are after permit today because Baum was out here yesterday. "There were permit all over," he says, estimating 40 sightings. "The conditions are just right again incoming tide, light wind, clear weather." Of those 40 sightings, not one permit took any of the three flies, all of his own design. That didn't deter me, for I was conditioned to consider permit next to impossible to catch on a fly, so difBe prepared when conventional methods don't work SEE FISHING | PAGE 5 Miami flyfishing guide, Cordell Baum, Jr. with a Biscayne Bay permit.

Once removed, the vessels are usually destroyed. The misdemeanor level of offense can result in a fine of up to $1,000 and one year in prison. Horning said sometimes an owner will remove identifying numbers from a vessel before intentionally abandoning it a felony that can result in a fine up to $5,000 (in addition to removal costs) and up to five years in prison. If the owner cannot be determined or located, the burden of removing the vessel falls on Florida taxpayers, Horning said.

"If you don't transfer the title and re-register the vessel properly, the former owner could be responsible for the vessel if it becomes derelict."

"With the proactive response of all of the law enforcement agencies statewide, we're feeling better about this issue," he said.

The most common reasons are: Anchor light present but not in use: 327.33(3)FS Expired registration 328.72(13)FS Improper display of registration 328.48FS Interference with navigation 327.44FS What do you do if your vessel is tagged? The officer will list items that he finds as indicators on the tag. The owner should try to make all necessary changes to bring the vessel back into compliance. If the vessel has the indicators repaired or corrected and the officer is notified by the owner that these corrections have been done, the vessel will have the "at risk" status removed. If the vessel indicators are not corrected or the owner does not contact the officer as requested, the vessel may be eligible for a derelict vessel investigation. If you don't understand why your vessel was tagged, call the officer on the number provided on the tag or 888-4043922 for the nearest FWC office. Are you in trouble if your vessel gets tagged? No, you are only being asked to address some issues with your vessel that could become a problem if not taken care of. It is a courtesy of the officer to advise you of possible future issues. If you have a vessel violation, the citation may also be part of the tagging process. For more info see: http://myfwc.com/boating/ waterway/derelict-vessels/at-risk-vessels.

Specializing in the Diving Industry ficult that it seemed almost, but only almost, not worth the effort. What, you don't know permit? Instead of yammering about the challenge, I refer you to Thomas McGuane's famous essay, The Longest Silence. My favorite part is the third paragraph. I've prepared an 8-weight fly rod with a small, weighted fly of Baum's design, copied from his website. It's supposed to resemble some sort of crustacean. He calls it the Mighty Mighty Speed Dart, with two Mightys, no comma. It's supposed to be twice as mighty as you'd expect. The falling tide has hit bottom and begun rising. Baum and I are scanning 180-plus degrees as he poles us along slowly. It's fairly easy to spot a distant disturbance, h owever slight, on the smooth surface, but sitting at duck level in the bow my range is limited. Baum, standing in the stern, can spot fish signs a much longer way off than I can. "Do you see that?" he asks. "Three hundred yards that way." "No, but I'll take your word for it." "There." He lays his push pole over my left shoulder, aiming it north of us. I follow its line until I see a shape that could be a stick floating far away. Whatever it is, it's moving toward us. Baum soon identifies it as a permit and positions the boat head on to it. I get ready to cast. I wait for the guide to call the shot. "Cast now," he says. I make an inexpert cast, meant to come down in the oncoming fish's path and accidentally doing so. The permit ignores it, veering slightly away to its left, our right. It is just below the surface, not snooting in the bottom sand with its tail sticking out, which is what permit do in almost everything else you read about them. We only see the dorsal fin. Baum turns the canoe parallel to the fish, poles us a few yards forward and tells me to cast again. We get two or three shots at this one, but not a bite. us but seemed oblivious. They were supposed to flee us on sight. They didn't. They must have been feeding, but they hadn't even sniffed at our flies. You're supposed to be able to make 60-foot pinpoint casts to permit. I'm not that accurate, but I'm pretty good to 40 feet and this day I hadn't needed many casts longer than that. "Your casting was good enough," Baum said, reminding me that most of the time my fly landed in the fishes' bite zone and clearly didn't scare them. He found me not guilty. He had put us into the midst of prize fish, so I found him not guilty. "Then it's agreed: We blame the fish?" said I. "Agreed," said he. Up close Besides Biscayne Bay, Cordell Baum Jr. guides fly anglers to butterfly peacock and largemouth in the canals of Miami and the Everglades. To arrange a guided trip, see www.bonefishwhisperer.com Novelist Thomas McGuane's essay "The Longest Silence" may be the best thing ever written on fly fishing for permit. Look it up at http://midcurrent.com/books/the-longest-silence. Every several minutes during the next couple of hours (I'm not keeping time), that scene is repeated with the permit swimming in pairs, often two or three pairs in close proximity, all with dorsal fins breaking the surface. We can't see whole fish, but by comparing the fins we know some are pretty large. One of the things we often read about permit is that if they see you, they bolt. Not the ones we see today. They can't help seeing us; we are near enough to wave and make small talk. "Catching anything?" one of the fish asks. "Not yet," I say. "What are you feeding on?" Baum asks. Smiling slyly, that fish says "Have a nice day" and swims away. All told, I get about 15 casts to permit, mostly imperfect but nearly all close enough for the fish to see and reject the fly. Baum replaces the Mighty Mighty Speed Dart with a crab mimic from my fly box a crustacean so realistic we could advertise it as flown in fresh that morning from Crustacea. The fish ignore it. "This is abnormal," Baum says. Yesterday, when he saw about 40 permit behaving the same way, was almost three times this abnormal. Poling back to Deering Point, we re-hash the experience: The permit swam right by us, couldn't miss seeing Permit's oblivious reaction to fly a surprise FISHING | FROM PAGE 3 Custom Marine Canvas & Upholstery Creatively Custom Made Just the Way You Want it inWays You've Never Seen Before!

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM November2011 Waterfront Times MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Thanksgiving offers a good opportunity to reflect back on our country's history. It is my thought that the U.S. is far more wedded to the principles of rugged individual liberty than can be found in most other modern nations. A tradition that reflects this is the right to a jury of one's peers in most criminal and disputed civil matters. While the right to a jury originates from English common law (the laws of the pilgrims' mother country), an even greater regard for the process is embedded in the laws of the U.S. including its Constitution. One reason that the right to a jury was so prized by the nation's forefathers remains with the concept of jury nullification. The term refers to when a jury reaches a verdict contrary to the instructions given by the court and/or the facts presented to them. It is a situation that can result in an accused party being freed from further prosecution or litigation, contrary to the clear intent of a law or the facts of a case. Historically, juries used nullification to protest what they perceived as unjust statutes or prosecutorial excesses that would result in unjust punishment. A famous example affecting the founding of the U.S. was when William Penn was exonerated by an English jury on the charge of disturbing the peace by preaching Quaker doctrine, which was clearly against the king's laws at the time. The judge in that case attempted to hold the jury in contempt for their decision and demanded they reverse it, but a higher court repudiated this. After his release, Mr. Penn went on to establish the colony of Pennsylvania. During the colonial period following the precedent set in the Penn case, Americans used jury nullification as a tool to defy what they felt were the unjust laws of the crown. Future President John Adams successfully argued in favor of jury nullification in several trials where he acted as attorney for the defense. Jury nullification became so pervasive a problem for the king's administrators that they retaliated by moving jurisdiction over many taxation and commerce cases directly into the Courts of Admiralty, which traditionally have no juries. Famously, John Hancock fell victim to these actions and was made to forfeit a vessel without benefit of a jury for what was a tax case. Revolutionary and Boston brewer Sam Adams made use of the admiralty courts in his 1772 "List of Infringements & Violations of Rights," stating that among the grievances against the king was: "The extending the power of the Courts of Vice Admiralty to so enormous a degree as deprives the people...of their inestimable right to tryals (sic) by Juries: which has ever been Justly considered as the grand Bulwark and security of English property." It should be noted that while its jurisdiction is not as expansive as it was under King George, cases "in Admiralty" are still traditionally heard without juries. Although this is considered acceptable for most maritime matters, it has recently become a concern, as some cruise line tickets require passengers to take their cases for loss and injury into the admiralty venue. While the jury issue is usually circumvented due to certain procedural maneuvers that allow them in most instances, the matter remains controversial. Following the revolutionary period, jury nullification remained a traditional part of American jurisprudence. It came BOB E. SHERMAN Waterfront Times Columnist When I sold my boat last year, I promised my wife we would do some traveling. So this summer we took a little road trip, 5,745 miles to be exact. We headed north to get out of the heat. It started getting hotter the further north we drove and I began missing the water by the time I hit Orlando. When I reached Nashville my mind was diverted to my other love country music. We had the chance to combine boating and country music by taking a trip on the General Jackson Paddlewheel on the Cumberland River. I think I was the only person in the audience wearing boat shoes. Next we went to the Country Music Hall of Fame where we almost met some celebrities during lunch in the lobby cafe. Our waiter told us to stick around as Hank Williams Jr. was being interviewed and would pass by any moment. As it turned out, Hank's daughters were sitting at the table next to us. When I went into the gift shop and saw Holly's CD and Hilary's book. I ran out to get their autographs, but was too late. Our next stop was Branson, Mo. I was so unimpressed that we cut our two-day stay to one. On the way out of town, yearning to be on the water, we took a duck boat tour. Duck boats date back to World War II. They were designed by Sparkman and Stephens and built by GMC. After a short bumpy ride through town we arrived at Table Rock Lake. Capt. Dan demonstrated how to put on a PFD and gave us duck quackers. We were instructed to quack when another duck boat passed by or Capt. Dan told a tall tale, which was often. While cruising around the lake at 5 knots, we passed the Showboat Branson Belle, which is the largest boat on a land locked body of water. Heading on to Colorado looking for that relief from the heat, we stopped in Salina Kansas. Luckily for us it had cooled down to 105 degrees when we arrived at our hotel at 7 p.m. We finally found some cooler weather in Steamboat Springs. Boating in Steamboat consists of kayaking when the Yampa River is high enough or rafting. I considered rafting, but no one would disclose the water temperature. My guess would be in the 50s. I'm told that the water temperature increases as the beer supply decreases. Remember the Alamo? I'll never forget it. I had to take my hat off and I couldn't take pictures. To cheer myself up afterwards we took a cruise along the San Antonio River Walk. From San Antonio it was on to New Orleans. The September issue of "Power & Motoryacht's" article, "After the Storm," reports on the recovery of the Gulf Coast from Louisiana to Alabama since Hurricane Katrina. I toured the Ninth Ward and to quote the Allman Brothers, "it's a downright rotten lowdown dirty shame." I couldn't visit the Mississippi without taking a boat trip. We took the Greta Ferry from Canal Street to Gretna, just across the river. "The Muddy Mississippi" is an understatement. I never saw so much mud. I can't imagine what it does to the ship's cooling system. Passengers ride for free and cars are only $1. If they charged a little more maybe they could do some maintenance; six months of chipping and a few drums of Rustoleum would do miracles. One of the things I love about living on the ocean is the smell of salt air. The ferry ride was fun, but the smell of mud is not the same. Bob E. Sherman can be reached through www.bobesherman.com.

A follow-up took place in October, 1990. In attendance were the marine and non-marine communities, governmental and non-governmental groups, and representatives from the boating and marine industries, environmentalists, home and condo associations, recreational and commercial boat users, as well as city and county residents. Maybe it is time for readdressing and reviewing the 1984 and 1990 charettes to serve and save our treasured waters in "The Venice of America," Boating Capital of the World. If you agree, please contact cwpicks@aol.com. Capt. Chuck Willard, Fort Lauderdale Marine charrettes should be addressed again LETTERS into national notice again in the 1850s, when juries in northern states used it to free runaways, contrary to the intent of the federal Fugitive Slave Act. It is thought that Daniel Webster's advocacy of jury nullification in these cases may have cost him the presidency. In the present day, many courts and legislators have shown little enthusiasm for the advocacy of jury nullification, with several federal circuits affirming the idea that a counsel for a party cannot bring it up as an option for the jury. Has this curtailed jury nullification? It'll be hard to tell until another major national controversy comes along and is placed in the purview of a citizen's jury. Some have argued that the not guilty verdicts in the O.J. Simpson and recent Casey Anthony murder trials were exorcises in jury nullification. However, I would argue that they are a better example of cases where jurors followed the court's instructions rather closely, and based their decisions on the facts allowed them by the court (as opposed to what was presented to the public through the media). The Anthony and Simpson cases may not be examples of jury nullification. But they do represent the power of the jury system to still make decisions that seem far different from the desired outcomes expected by the government, or the public. The right to a jury (and arguably, the right of jury nullification) remains a power that has and can change both individual lives and public policy. It may even be something to be thankful for in a society that prizes liberty. Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale.

9 November2011 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times Sweet, succulent and with a caramel-like flavor, Medjool dates were once reserved for royalty. But now, you can delight in these luscious fruits any time, giving your holiday and everyday occasions the royal treatment. Whether you're hosting your own holiday feast, or bringing a special dish to family and friends, Medjools make a regal addition to many recipes. For holiday recipes see: www.naturaldelights.com. Medjool Date Nut-Stuffed Chicken Prep Time: 45 to 50 minutes Serves: 2 1 tablespoon butter 1/4 medium onion, finely diced 6 to 8 Medjool Dates, pitted and chopped 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs 1/4 cup pistachio nuts, chopped 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh herbs (parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary, etc.) 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts Salt and pepper 2 tablespoons olive oil 1/4 cup dry white wine Heat oven to 400 degrees. Melt butter in a sautŽ pan over medium heat. Add onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Mix the dates, breadcrumbs, nuts, herbs and onion together. Using a sharp, non-serrated knife, cut a pocket into the thickest part of each chicken breast being careful not to cut through. Leave about half inch on all sides. Fill pockets with date mixture, season with salt and pepper and brush both sides with olive oil. Place in a shallow baking dish and pour in the wine. Bake 30 to 35 minutes until chicken is fully cooked. Medjool Date, Orange & Almond Salad Prep Time: 15 minutes Serves: 3 to 4 4 to 6 Medjool Dates 8 ounces iceberg or mixed green lettuce 2 oranges peeled and separated into segments 4 ounces crumbled blue or goat cheese 1/4 cup almonds, sliced or slivered Orange vinaigrette dressing: 1 orange, juiced 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard 4 tablespoons olive oil Fresh ground pepper Remove pits from dates and cut into quarters. Cut each one more time to yield 8 cubes per date. Combine dates with greens, oranges, cheese and orange vinaigrette and toss. Top with sliced almonds, add fresh ground pepper to taste and serve immediately. To make vinaigrette: Combine the juice of one orange, Dijon mustard, olive oil and freshly ground pepper, and mix until smooth. Delicious Twice-Baked Potatoes Serves 6 to 8 6 medium russet potatoes (about 2 pounds) 2 teaspoons vegetable oil (for potato skins) 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter cut into pieces, set aside 1 1/2 cups shredded Colby-Jack cheese 1 green onion rinsed and thinly sliced, set aside 1/4 cup whole milk 1 tablespoon dried parsley 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/3 cup pre-grated Parmesan cheese Spray a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish with cooking spray, set aside. Scrub and pat dry potatoes; prick potatoes with fork 2 to 3 times per side. Lightly oil skins with vegetable oil; place potatoes on a microwave safe dish. Microwave according to microwave directions. Remove hot potatoes from microwave when done, set aside for 5 minutes to cool. Cut potatoes in half lengthwise with a serrated knife. Fold a sheet of paper towel to hold hot potato half, use a spoon to scoop out potato flesh into a large mixing bowl, leaving about a 1/4-inch-thick shell. Place skins in prepared dish, set aside. Add butter to mixing bowl with potatoes; beat with electric mixer on medium for about 1 minute. Add cheese, onion, milk, parsley, garlic powder and pepper; beat just until blended. Be careful not to over-beat potatoes. Evenly spoon potato mixture into skins; grate Parmesan cheese over tops. Warm potatoes in microwave or place in a 350 degree oven and heat through. To brown tops, place warmed potatoes under broiler for 2 to 3 minutes. Twice baked potatoes can be made a day ahead. Stuff the potatoes, then cover and refrigerate them; then, on serving day, warm as instructed above.
