Serving South Florida's Coastal Neighborhoods FEBRUARY 2012 YEAR 2 ISSUE 8 BRIAN PALMER The Slate Group LLC Should women and children go first? Do captains have to go last? After the 4,300-passenger cruise ship Costa Concordia ran aground off the Italian coast, in January, the issue has been bantered about. Some passengers say there was chaos during the evacuation, with no respect for the tradition of women and children first. The Italian Coast Guard reportedly ordered the captain, who had abandoned ship, back onto his crippled vessel to assist in the evacuation, but he refused. Are there laws governing how to abandon ship? Yes, but they say nothing about gender or age. The International Maritime Organization has issued fairly extensive rules about the location and size of lifeboats a cruise ship must offer, and how quickly a company should be able to clear its ship. If an evacuation alarm sounds, cruise-ship passengers are supposed to proceed to the loading area and board a lifeboat that was assigned to them based on their cabin numbers. Some evacuations are far more chaotic than that, and the crew just loads whoever is ready to go. In those emergency situations, men sometimes step aside for the women to go first, but it's not a matter of maritime law, nor is the tradition observed in many parts of the world. Similarly, the captain has no obligation to go down with the ship, and he or she doesn't have to be the last person to step into a lifeboat. (In many cases, like the Costa Concordia incident, people go unaccounted for, so requiring the captain to be the last person off would be a death sentence.) Nevertheless, it's possible that Capt. Francesco Schettino failed in his duty to his passengers. The International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea requires the captain to exercise his professional judgment to protect passenger safety, and most maritime experts would agree that presence on the ship is a prerequisite for fulfilling that obligation. Some nations, such as Italy, Greece, and Spain have laws requiring the captain to remain on the ship to evacuate passengers, although these are rarely enforced and don't specify exactly when the captain is permitted to leave. In her book "Women and Children First: 19thCentury Sea Narratives and American Identity," English professor Robin Miskolcze chronicled the origins of our maritime evacuation priorities. Until the second half of the 18th century, it was widely believed in England and America that God decided who would survive a shipwreck, so no one criticized men for climbing over whoever stood between them and safety. However, as Enlightenment thinkers began to emphasize human agency, and women came to be viewed as the holy protectors of the family, news reports grew critical of men who survived shipwrecks that killed female passengers.

"A lot of work went into this, and we're all determined," he said, brimming with pride. "We didn't do so well last year, but this year, we're coming out swinging." The event London hopes to win is the 2nd Annual Red Bull Candola, which will offer homegrown "gondoliers" the chance to race and showcase man-made, human-powered gondolas down Fort Lauderdale's New River on April 14. Teams will score some extra "wings" if they include a certain 8.4-oz. can in the watercraft's design. Publicist Cassady Faircloth said the idea for the event came from an employee of Red Bull and that it took several years to develop. Fort Lauderdale, dubbed the "Venice of America" for its proliferation of waterways, was an obvious location. "Red Bull has become known for innovative sports and recreational competitions, plus its sponsorship of extreme sports," Faircloth said. "Candola, which is a fun, family-friendly event with on and off-the-water activities, is no different." Teams of three two mates and a captain take on the task of designing, building and rowing the creative craft down a .33-mile course between Huizenga Plaza and Esplanade Park. Faircloth said last year's inaugural Candola was a resounding success, with more than 12,000 people lining the waterfront to watch 20 teams row. "Fort Lauderdale was so welcoming last time, with such an overwhelming amount of support from the crowd, participants and local businesses that everyone is even more excited for this year," Faircloth said. "There couldn't be a more perfect city, not only because of the amazing downtown setting, but also because of all the creative talent and paddling skills people here inspire." It's not exactly a race, so entrants need not worry about having the fastest gondola. It just has to fit within certain size limitations, and, of course, it has to float. "Time is just one of the factors the judges take into consideration," Faircloth said. "Creativity and showmanship play a big part into which group gets crowned with the title, Big Bambino.'" Naturally, the busy vessel traffic on the New River presents a challenge, but she said Red Bull works with the local marine patrol and the U.S. Coast Guard to Homegrown gondolas to glide on the New River SEE GONDOLA | PAGE 9 SEE ETIQUETTE | PAGE 4 There is an etiquette to abandoning ship Promoters said last years inaugural Red Bull Candola was a resounding success, with more than 12,000 people lining Riverwalk t o watch 20 teams row.

Loudly and profanely, you denounce yourself as an idiot. Your companions agree. At least you were smart enough to have towing insurance. A phone or radio call brings the towboat. The guy on that boat gets you out of your jam your hero in a small way. Once in a while, his kind gets to be a hero in a big way. Four towboat operators received the Woody Pollak Lifesaving Award in mid-January by BoatUS Towing Services, for rescues performed last year. Three of them operate in Florida waters. Their stories: Kevin Freestone of Big Pine Key last July answered a mayday call from a 22-foot boat with six people aboard. Radio contact was lost before he reached them but he searched and found them standing in the swamped boat, trying to balance it to prevent capsizing. He took them aboard and salvaged their boat. Freestone previously earned a Public Safety Commendation from the Coast Guard for saving a kayaker who was severely injured in a collision with a leaping barracuda in October 2010. The victim, Karri Larson of Key West, was on water too shallow for available Coast Guard boats. She's joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary and is campaigning to recruit the owners of flats boats for shallow-water emergencies. Lee Eckler, a TowBoatUS captain at Tarpon Springs, was out in a thunderstorm when he noticed three heads bobbing in the water with an overturned kayak. The heads were three girls, 12 to 16 years old, who had one life vest. Eckler took them and their kayak home. Mike Dunn of TowBoatUS at Homosassa joined bystanders trying to rescue nine victims thrown overboard by the violent flip-over of a 39-foot fishing boat whose owner was killed. Dunn took aboard the owner's 18-year-old son, who had turned blue and had an open head wound, then raced up the crowded Homosassa River to rendezvous with a rescue helicopter. The young man survived. Capts. Rodney and Mattie Suggs of Clear Lake, Tex., near Galveston, went to the aid of a disabled sailboat, dragging anchor with a multiple man-overboard emergency on a windy day. The victims had gone swimming and got into trouble in a fast current. The captains picked up one, then were told about six more. They found those half a mile away, exhausted from struggling against the current that carried them away from the boat. Then Suggs rescued everyone and towed the sailboat to safety. One of the most interesting online boating resources in Florida is the Statewide At-Risk and Derelict Vessel Map. Suppose you come across a derelict and wonder if it's already known to the FWC. Before wasting time on the radio or phone, deploy your computer to www.myfwc.com/boating. There's a screen shot of the statewide map. Beside and below it are blue links that will take you to a Google map of Florida. There's a menu on the right, with a "queries" button at the bottom. Click that and then choose from any of five displayed categories counties, FWC regions, vesssel use (recreational, commercial or unknown), vessel style (power, sail, human power or unknown) and agency (many municipal and county jurisdictions are listed). Next, click on "search." You'll see a bunch of colored dots. Zoom in to enlarge the map and narrow down the locations separately. The more you zoom, the more exact each location gets. A red dot signifies a derelict that's a navigational hazard. A yellow dot marks a derelict that is not a hazard. Violet means an at-risk vessel. How current is that map? "It is updated instantaneously once the officer makes the entry," says Jorge Pino, spokesman for the FWC. While you're floating the boating pages of the FWC website, update your knowledge of speed zones designated for manatee protection. Start here: www.myfwc.com/wildlifehabitats/managed/manatee/ protection-zones. It's important for boaters to get up to date because the FWC has finished its latest waterway sign project in Miami-Dade County removing, repairing and installing new signs in manatee protection and boating safety zones. Now it's going to be harder to dodge a ticket on the excuse that a sign was down, illegible or missing. "There are several areas around the county where enforcement had been difficult because the signs were missing or damaged," said Capt. Mark Hodges, of the FWC's Division of Law Enforcement. "After an education period, officers will issue citations for speed violations within the zones." SEE BOATING NEWS | PAGE 4 BOATING NEWS Rescues at sea earn awards for towing operators

"It's important to slow down vessel traffic in areas that manatees frequent and that are congested with boats to adequately protect the safety of the boating public and manatees," Hodges said.

Public release of an impending new draft of Everglades National Park's long-a'borning general management plan has been delayed until next year no date specified while park staff revises plans for new facilities that proved too good to come true. Or too expensive. In a message to stakeholders who have participated in the slow process for several years, Everglades planning director Fred Herling cited economic difficulties. "We've been asked to carefully reevaluate proposals regarding the redevelopment of Flamingo and the Gulf Coast Visitor Center site in Everglades City, as these two projects were by far the most expensive elements identified in the GMP (for general management should be awarded late in 2013, identifying facilities and services to be provided there. There is no current target date for the construction of the facilities. Park users have until Feb. 3 to participate in the Everglades City redevelopment plans.

"Our commitment is not just to complete a plan, but to have a GMP that can be implemented and that includes achievable goals and strategies..." Most of the already inadequate and too-old facilities at Flamingo were heavily damaged in 2005 by hurricane Katrina and finished off later that year by Wilma. The plans include a new lodge and cabins for overnight visitors. The cost of making them hurricane and flood-resistant may reduce the intended scope of that project.

When the HMS Birkenhead went down in 1852, the soldiers reportedly stood at attention while the women and children were loaded into lifeboats. The overwhelming majority of the men died in an act that contemporary writers called "a piece of pure and exalted manhood." Two years later, there was a mad scramble on the decks of the American ship SS Arctic as it foundered near Newfoundland. The press branded the male survivors cowards for failing to save even a single woman or child. American morality was redeemed in 1857, when the crew and male passengers of the SS Central America loaded women and children onto lifeboats at the expense of their own lives. Media reports glorified the gold-rush men who sacrificed their new wealth and their lives in a final act of chivalry. The image of Capt. William Lewis Herndon calmly smoking a cigar as he went down with his ship became a symbol of American seagoing bravery. Sowhat's goingtohappentothecapsizedcruiseship? They'll move it off the reef, very slowly. A salvage company will have to right the Costa Concordia, patch it, and pump out the water before attempting to tow it away. It's not an easy job under any circumstances, but this will be a particularly tough rescue. Salvagers have to place a bulkhead against the ship to steady it while winches pull it upright. In this case, it will be difficult to find a place to set the bulkhead on the jagged rocks nearby. Air bags might be placed under the hull and inflated to give the ship a boost, but they can't right the ocean liner on their own. The salvage process will likely take months, and possibly more than a year. If the operation is too difficult, the owners may decide to cut the ship up, take it away on barges, and sell it for scrap.

5 February2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times "Am I exaggerating?" I asked. "No," he said. "It's a monster. There's an even bigger one that hangs around the shoreline at Snake Bight." That kayaker leading five others was Garl Harrold, who really spells his names that way. He's the man at Coastal Kayaking, an Everglades expert who guides adventurous types along the Nine Mile Pond canoe trail and other places more and less challenging. Harrold speaks of the giant croc as him and he, though not because he knows its gender. He can't tell, but in about eight years of observation he's learned its tendencies. It's an ideal time to get a good look, Harrold says: "He is seen more often as water levels start to drop open, as if daring anything to come near. We paddled by again and again, unable to go away. Fourteen feet? Oh no. That guy in the kayak underguessed. My guess is that our 15-foot canoe might have matched the croc from its snout only to the bend in its tail much of it folded on the croc's starboard side where we couldn't see it. Its great bulk was far more impressive, making every other croc and alligator I've seen look puny. I tried to think of comparisons more realistic than King Kong. How about four or five regular-size crocs in a stack, one on top of the other? I tried that on Robert Moehling Jr. at his family's fruit stand, Robert Is Here, between Homestead and the national park. He'd seen the croc. ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist With its mouth wide open, the giant crocodile of Nine Mile Pond looks able to gobble up a bonefish skiff, with space to spare for a couple of jetskis and their riders. "What do you think it eats?" Larry Karples asked as we two paddled past it, about 40 feet away. "Two men in a canoe" would have been a clever reply, but I just thought of that now. At the time, in a state of flabbergastity, I resorted to a clichŽ: "Whatever it wants." We were near the end of a paddling journey on Nine Mile Pond's 5-mile canoe trail, a popular feature of Everglades National Park, when six paddlers in blue kayaks came toward us through a pass between two other ponds. "Follow the shoreline on your left and watch for a big crocodile," their leader said. "A 14-footer, as long as my kayak." With the hour or so of daylight still left, I had planned on fishing. There are bass in Nine Mile Pond itself and sometimes tarpon and snook in the two smaller ponds just to its north. Larry and I were crossing one of those, discussing whether a wrong turn back on the trail had cost us one hour or two of fishing time, when the kayakers greeted us. It's no surprise in Everglades to see an American crocodile, reputedly much less ferocious than the African and Australian versions. I've watched pretty long ones duck as soon as they saw a boat coming. That's what we expected when we turned left on the other lake, still thinking of fishing until we saw the croc.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM February2012 Waterfront Times MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist There are many poems about ocean voyages. Here's one you might recall: "The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea in a beautiful pea green boat, They took some honey, and plenty of money, wrapped in a five pound note." The transport of animals by boat isn't just the stuff of nursery rhymes. It also holds a place in maritime history and is presently part of an evolving body of local and international law. Of course, the first "recorded" nautical transport of animals occurred on Noah's Ark. Noah boarded at least one mating pair of all land creatures in the world to preserve them from environmental disaster. Since that time, animals have often been among the "travelers" on ocean-going vessels sometimes on purpose, and often as stowaways. Historically, animals have not been brought aboard ships for altruistic reasons. Rather, their purpose was to provide fresh food, or to be used as beasts of burden at a vessel's final destination. Before the Age of Exploration that began in the 16th century, the transport of animals by sea occurred within short enough distances that it usually had minimal effect on the local environment. This changed drastically after the European discovery of the New World and the opening of navigation routes rounding Africa. Once it became practical to cross oceans and travel to unfamiliar lands with fauna and flora in tow, changes to local ecosystems systems were bound to eventually occur. One example is the introduction by the Spanish of horses to the American continents. Allowing wild horses to populate areas where they had been previously unknown not only altered patterns of native grazing, it also profoundly changed the hunting habits and culture of some of the native human populations. Various other cases have not always proven so symbiotic. For example, the importation of rabbits to Australia for sport hunting has put many of the native marsupial species at ecological risk due to loss of food and habitat as they are forced to compete with the non-native bunnies. As we have come to understand the possible effects from bringing nonnative species to an unfamiliar environment, most countries have at least attempted to put some rules in place to prevent occurrences from happening intentionally. Today, the worst impact to ecosystems can occur by the unintentional introduction of a species. Nobody wants their backyard or house infested with fire ants, Formosan termites or Norwegian rats. None are natives to the U.S, arriving here essentially as hitchhikers in the holds of ships or in the packing materials of cargo. Some of these unwanted stowaways are not even land animals. Aquatic species have traveled by riding in the bilge water within a ship until they are eventually released when the water is pumped out. Some creatures can travel by merely attaching themselves to the bottom of a vessel, with their progeny ending up in whatever new location the ship may dock. An infamous example is the zebra mussel, which originated in the Volga River before getting transported to Britain in the 1800s. They were introduced in the Great Lakes in 1988. These mussels are not only crowding BOB E. SHERMAN Waterfront Times Columnist I hate to agree with my Republicans friends, but we do have too much government regulation. A good example of this is the Transportation Worker Identification Credential TWIC for short. According to the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) own estimate, the program will cost $3.2 billion for over 10 years. Confusion has reined since the TWIC was mandated by Congress nine years ago. After interviewing all my captain friends, there seems to be no consensus on who is required to carry the TWIC. Capt. Ray at the Naples City Docks, who runs fishing charters on his 22-foot center console, can produce his TWIC. His take is that every captain and mate should have the credential despite never going near a secured area. Even though TWIC and the USCG license fall under DHS, there doesn't seem to be any coordination between agencies hence additional fees, fingerprinting and duplication of background checks. The only good to come out of this is that captains licenses will now be displayed in a passport-style booklet, which is easier to carry aboard your boat than an 8.5 x 11 certificate in a zip lock bag. And after being fingerprinted several times and vetted for any terrorist affiliations, it was only recently that the TSA, another agency of DHS, accepted your TWIC as proper identification for flying. After visiting the USCG website to determine if a TWIC is necessary to renew my captain's license, I became more confused and called the agency for clarification. This entailed pushing many numbers on my phone before reaching a live agent. But she had no information other than where to mail my check. I did come across Policy Letter 11-15 on the USCG website that alluded to an exemption. I then called the Coast Guard 1-888-IASKNMC for clarification. The agent referred me to the Policy Letter. No surprise there. I have called numerous government agencies for clarification of the laws, regulations or policies they have created. They all suggest hiring an attorney to explain it to me. Whatever happened to "straight from the horse's mouth?" Calling back, I finally reached an agent familiar with the TWIC exemption. It still took us several minutes to find the website link. I don't know how I missed it: It is clearly labeled "TWIC Sample B Form." My opinion as a former president of a cemetery association and factorytrained Evinrude mechanic: You can be exempt from carrying a TWIC if you serve on an uninspected vessel under 100 GRT, which does not have a vessel security plan (VSP). But which boats need a VSP remains a gray area. I had a VSP on my Sea Ray: If anyone spots a periscope and then sees a "fish" coming toward us, yell "abandon ship" and jump overboard. The TWIC continues to be of limited value. Without biometric readers, the cards are subject to fraud. That fact alone shows the absurdity of requiring the charter captain of a 22foot fishing boat to carry the TWIC. I haven't read anything suggesting the Fish and Wildlife officers or the Hallandale Marine Police are planning on carrying a waterproof version of the reader on their boats.

We can clearly see how bringing a new species into a location where it has never existed before can prove "beastly." So, how are governments handling these concerns? With great difficulty. Generally speaking, national customs and agricultural agencies tend to head off potential problems with a decent amount of competence. Great Britain has shown the way by being one of the few places where rabies does not exist. It the past, British authorities enforced a six month quarantine on animals susceptible to the disease. Since this has discouraged tourists who refuse to travel without their pets, the British have recently modified their system to allow traveling pet owners to apply for a special "pet passport," providing the animal meets certain criteria including an underskin microchip. If you're considering going to Britain with your dog or cat, you might want to check this site first: www.defra.gov.uk/wildlifepets/ pets/travel/pets/pet-owners. Unfortunately, most government programs are not so efficient when it comes to dealing with the unintended importation of a species. The problem is that trying to create a preventive program that doesn't affect the open stream of world commerce has become a major obstacle. Boat owners who want to learn more about how to help prevent an invasive species from following you home from a foreign port, can check out the Department of Agriculture's website: www.defra.gov.uk/wildlifepets/pets/travel/pets/pet-owners.

8 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM February2012 Waterfront Times whether we should retrace back to no. 77, until we encountered some kayak paddlers going thisaway. Go thataway, they said. We did, and found ourselves back at marker 64. "This doesn't look familiar," Larry said. That was because our sightline to no. 65 was different from when we'd passed no. 64 before. We reckoned we had accidentally crossed the infield of the oval-shaped trail, and voted to follow the markers rather than risk cutting across again without guidance. Eventually we came again to marker 77, where we had mistakenly turned left before. Just ahead on our right stood no. 78, shiny white in the afternoon sunlight. "How did we miss that before?" we asked each other. We figured it out pretty quickly. We had been struggling a bit, paddling over breadstick algae, which looks like mushy, waterlogged breadsticks. Turning left at marker 77 gave us a path of clear water. We both looked that way and made the turn with not a trace of doubt. "We were damn lucky," Larry said, thinking darkly of what might have happened if we had blundered off trail to the right instead of the left. We might still be out there.

"He is not as shy as the numerous other crocs that I come across in the Everglades, such as the crocs I see at Snake Bight." He thinks the big one is about 40 years old and up to 15 feet long. Too bad he can't find anyone to hold one end of a tape for a more exact measurement. I asked if he could verify Robert is Here Jr.'s report of an even bigger croc at Snake Bight. "Oh yeah, definitely," Harrold said. I think that one's about 18 feet." Ranger Tim Downey, who leads national park tours at Nine Mile, thinks the giant is a male, but females also grow big. If he's tempted to give it a nickname, he can't. "The general policy in National Parks is to refrain from naming wildlife," he said."We would not want visitors to get the impression that any wildlife is tame or a pet. "I explain that crocodiles are generally much more shy than alligators and that this animal just wants to bask undisturbed. I cautionpaddlers to stay far enough away so that the animal does not feel the need to flee to the water." Reptiles don't make reservations, so nobody knows for sure how long any of them have been wherever they are. Bob Showler, the national park's district naturalist at Flamingo, says the Nine Mile Pond giant wasn't there when he was reassigned to Utah in 1996, but it was there when he returned to Everglades in 2003. Showler's in charge of the rangerguided trips on Nine Mile Pond. They're free and potentially exciting with the monster croc on hand, and there's a shortcut that knocks 1-1/2 miles off the route. It takes 3 to 3-1/2 hours instead of five or longer. "For various reasons, most visitors are more content to do the shorter trip; it's a good length of time for beginners," Showler told me. He's right. If your interest in Everglades exploration is more casual than intense, the shortcut version of the trip is sufficient to give you a good taste. If stronger urges lie within you, they will be awakened and you'll be adequately prepared to make the longer one on your own, as Larry Karples and I did. Don't go by yourself the first time. The trail is marked very well with white PVC poles, and you can see three or four of them ahead in some places, but they're easy to miss unless you're paying close attention. Diversions happen easily. Larry Karples and I were at the eastern end of the trail, ready to turn westward, and we did so at marker 77.

9 February2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times close the event's portion of the river on a roving basis, allowing commercial and private yachts to pass through intermittently during the three-hour event. And it's not just about navigation. To win support of the crowd and the judges, each team must also perform a 30-second skit before race time, and there's also a "people's choice" vote for teams to compete for another prize at the end. Faircloth said last year's event featured lots of innovative, often wacky designs, with "vessels" built to resemble pirate ships, spaceships and even animals. The winning team was Techno Vikings from Orlando, which walked away with a custom trophy. "We kind of threw everything together last year," said London, who is a pilot. "Our boat was made from a PVC frame and plastic sheeting. We weren't even sure whether it would survive the race. And it was super slow." Construction of last year's Candola: Jake London (left) with Ryan teammate Sansgaard. GONDOLA | FROM PAGE 1 His team, The Mile High Club, consists of himself, his wife Julie, and his friends Ryan and Jena Sansgaard. Since only three people can ride in the Candola, Jena will sit this one out. Last year, it was Julie. "I'm confidant that we can win this thing," London said. "But really, it's all just for fun." While all boats must actually float, there are a few other water-safety regulations required before castoff. All boats must be entirely human-powered no motors or stored energy permitted and cannot exceed 100 pounds (without passengers). Boats must be between 6 and 12 feet long and at least 2 feet above water, with a maximum height of 6 feet. Vessels should also be made using lightweight and environmentally safe materials mainly because while gondolas are intended to stay afloat, it's likely not all will be able to. Strong swimming skills are also required by all aboard in case they go overboard. For more information about the event, visit redbullusa.com/candola.
