The topic is awkward on all sides. If youre elderly, you may worry that just talking about what happens after death could be depressing or bad luck. (Is that wood-knocking I hear?) And if youre the child of an elderly person, you dont want it to look like youre jumping the gun or already toting up your inheritance. Recently, though, I came across some unusual options beyond the standard burial and cremation. And it struck me that saying something like, Hey, Dad, did you hear we can turn your ashes into diamonds? might be an excellent way to get the discussion rolling on how this final act should play out. I tried it. I discovered that even though my folks purchased burial plots many years ago, they have now decided they want to be cremated. Go figure. I suggested they sell the plots and take themselves to a fancy dinner. In the spirit of public service to caregivers and their loved ones, heres a quick rundown of some alternatives to the traditional coffin burial. Discuss amongst yourselves. With the fishesDon Brawley got the idea for his company, Eternal Reefs, one day a few years back from his father-in-law, who was watching as Brawley dropped concrete balls in the Florida sea to build up disappearing coral reefs. He said, I want you to put my remains in those artificial reefs, so I can spend eternity with the grouper and the snapper, Mr. Brawley recalled. He did as his father-in-law asked, and continues to do for others, too. Families can simply send the remains to Mr. Brawley to incorporate into the concrete balls, which he supplies free to seven state agencies to help rebuild reefs. Or relatives can get even more involved.

Now hes ready for this years event taking place from March 15-18 in the Dania Jai Alai parking lot. The only one I couldnt make it to was in 2007, during the period they were in Dolphins Stadium, said Fitzgerald, owner of Sailorman New and Used Marine Equipment in Fort Lauderdale. It just wasnt convenient for me that year. Like a lot of people, I was glad when they came back to the Jai Alai lot. Self proclaimed as the largest event of its type in the world, the Dania Marine Flea Market has drawn bargain-hunting boaters of all kinds to this quaint beach city since 1978. The Jai Alai lot has been its iconic location, but it was held in the stadium three times, from 2005 to 2007 due to construction plans at the Jai Alai facility, said event coordinator Jennifer Dudas. Its return to Dania was a relief to all, she added. True to its name, the four-day event is a bona fide flea market geared to boaters. Its laid-back, almost partylike atmosphere draws everyone from grandpas clearing out their garages to corporate retailers with the latest gear. Marine equipment, coral-encrusted antiques, used boats, fishing tackle, diving gear, marine artwork and more is up for grabs. Hundreds of new and used items are sold often below retail value and food vendors are also in ample supply to feed the masses while they browse. The first year they had it, people just showed up in trucks and sold stuff out the back, or they set their things right on the ground, Fitzgerald recalled. It didnt get sophisticated until years later. Now, we all have booths with tables. Fitzgerald said Sailorman usually occupies between two to six booths. Sometimes we bring a lot of stuff to sell right here. But we spend a lot of our time meeting people and handing out fliers, because what were really hoping to do is get them to also come by the store, since its so close. We buy a few things, too. Sailorman is known in the cruising community as a place to find almost anything new or used for a boat. Fitzgerald said his store is a natural fit for the event. Clay Hansen owns a similar business in St. Augustine called Sailors Exchange. Hansen and his brother Mike bought the store last year from Sinclair Schindler, who opened it decades ago. This will be my first time, Hansen said. But Sinclairs going to go with us, to show us the ropes. Im pretty excited about it. Hansen said hes especially interested in finding antique nautical items. Hell bring along a wide sampling of his stores inventory, such as line, hardware, hatches, blocks and other sailing equipment. Sellers pay $370 per booth, some taking up several in a block, Dudas said.

How about if the fish leaps and falls on your tight line, snapping it? No, there are worse things. What if that tarpon swims right up to your boat yelling "cheese!" and holding still just long enough for a great photo but your buddy fumbles his camera overboard? Yes, that's terrible, but this is worse: You catch that fish and then, just as you're turning it loose with its breathing and blood chemistry totally out of whack, a big ol' shark bites your tarpon in two, and it's your fault. A lot of us sort of knew that in a general way before FWC fish scientist Kathryn Guindon's latest research came out, but now that she's published her findings we can quit disagreeing about the stress that happens to big tarpon we catch and release, compared to small ones, and just how serious the effects are. The harder and longer the fight, the more serious the effects, Guindon found. It's worse for the big ones because it takes longer to lick them. A tarpon under 10 pounds can be caught and released in a couple of minutes. If you worry about causing harm by lifting a smaller tarpon out of the water by its chin for the minute or so it takes to shoot photos, Guindon's findings tell us gentle handling is more important for the big ones (70 pounds and up) than the little ones (less than 10 pounds). That doesn't mean it's cool to be careless just that we don't have to treat a 9-pound tarpon like an emergency case. Guindon and her research team went tarpon fishing, blood-tested the fish they caught and compared them with others that hadn't just been through a fight. They also held the smaller tarpon out of the water for 60 seconds, the way a sport fisher would while removing hooks and posing for pix, and tested their blood. Then they compared the tests to those of tarpon that were not held out of water. There was no significant stress difference. Here's how FWC expresses the findings, in language we hope you understand: "Battling an angler is strenuous exercise for a hooked tarpon. The battle includes heavy pulling by all involved, plus acrobatic leaps and endurance swimming for the tarpon. "Once the oxygen supplied to the blood from breathing through the gills runs short, the tarpon has to tap into the energy reserves found in the muscles to fuel the fight. This disrupts internal electrolyte and acid-base balance, builds up lactic acid in the muscles, and dumps lactate into the blood consequences that could affect the health and survival of a tarpon after release." Losing a big one to a shark is hard to blame on anyone else except the shark. If one detects a weakened, struggling fish in your custody, it will act so fast you won't hear it calling, "Dibs on the tarpon!" Your job as a conscientious fishing-doer is to avoid weakening a tarpon enough for that to happen. Use appropriate tackle light enough to make it a fair fight for the fish, but heavy enough to reel it in without taking very long. Finding the balance is tricky, but if you're fishing too light a 70-pounder will let you know quickly by running your line out or breaking off. If you can keep it under control, get it over with. If you can't, use a heavier-duty rod and reel. "Handling a hooked tarpon carefully and quickly and releasing it in the absence of large predators will increase its chance of surviving the angler's fight," the FWC declared. It didn't say what to do in the predator's presence. All we know is that hollering, "Scram!" won't work. See the FWC summary of the tarpon findings at http://myfwc.com/research/saltwater/tarpon/catchrelease/stress-effects. At the bottom of that page is a link to Guindon's entire report. If you're fascinated by what goes on at the bottom of the ocean but can't get down there yourself, the list of next best things includes a close look inside the research submarine Antipodes and a chance to pick the brains of its crew. That includes local schoolteachers who've been diving in it. The sub is in the Miami area from March 2-11, based at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center with three of those days devoted to public openhouse events. Try to make it on opening day Friday, March 2 when the sub will be on public display from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the nature center. That's inside Crandon Park on Key Biscayne; you can find driving directions on its website, www.biscaynenaturecenter.org. After seven days of non-public educational activities, including teacher dives, the weekend of March 10-11 will be devoted to more public appearances including those teachers at certain docks.

Florida's newest gag grouper regulations for the Gulf of Mexico establish a recreational open season beginning July 1 and lasting to the end of October. The state dates, covering water up to 9 miles offshore, match the newest federal regulations for waters beyond the 9-mile mark. The last state season for gag grouper was closed last Nov. 16. The Fish and Wildlife Commission authorized executive director Nick Wiley to issue an executive order creating a separate gag season for waters off four eastern Panhandle counties: Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin. That season will be open in April, May and June, when the fish are most available in that area. It will be closed there from July through October. The Commission also changed the commercial size limit for gag from 24 inches to 22 inches, total length. Gray Ingram of Jupiter and Betsy Crudele of Fort Lauderdale, who won Overall Male and Overall Lady angler of the year tagging honors in last year's tagging competition of The Billfish Foundation, have done it again. Deadline: Midnight on Sunday, March 25. For all the rules, the prizes and the work of previous winners, see: www.rsmas.miami.edu/outreach/underwater-photography. Five marine science scholars at Florida universities received the $5,000 Guy Harvey Scholarship Award from the famous artist's Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. Their work on permit, sharks, billfish and marine chemistry ranges from the deeply complex to basic things that fishing-doers sometimes wonder about without following up. For example, how do billfish use their bills for feeding, other than smacking their prey? M. Laura Habegger, at the University of South Florida, is using physics and engineering principles to find out more. Her objectives include development of tackle to keep billfish out of commercial bycatch, and reduce stress on those caught in tournaments. Sarah Stephens' work at the University of Florida has practical applications for flats fishing. She is teaching Caribbean guides to use dart tags that will track the movements of permit, a prized gamefish whose ways are not too well known. Suppose you could treat your fishhooks with something to make sharks let them alone even if they like the bait. Ha ha, you say? Kier Smith at Florida Atlantic is treating hooks with a graphite-zinc mixture, and preliminary tests indicate that sharks won't bite them. Smith's goal is to keep sharks out of trouble by turning them off commercial longlines. Felipe Carvalho's project at the University of Florida is blue shark population management, supporting the training of scientists and technicians in remote sensing methods to track shark movements. Sean Bignami at the University of Miami is studying cobia and dolphin fish to learn how ocean acidification might affect early development of large marine fish. NAUTICAL NEWS | FROM PAGE 3 Since 1990, the foundation's worldwide tag-releaserecovery competition has contributed to scientific tracking of the movements of sailfish, spearfish, swordfish and blue, black, striped and white marlin in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. When fish caught, tagged and released by Ingram, Crudele and others are recaptured sometimes as far as 2,000 miles away they give up valuable information about billfish migration. Ingram also repeated his victory last year as leading Overall Male Angler for all species. Crudele also was top tagging angler for Atlantic sailfish. Other winners in the Atlantic are Sam Jennings of Juno Beach for blue marlin and Richard Gudoian of Key Largo for swordfish. The top tagging captains on the Atlantic include Floridians Mike Lemon (the skipper of Jennings' boat Revenge) for blue marlin and Sean O'Connor of Key Largo for swordfish.

5 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times made of sturdy lumber. That might be too testy a topic for a friendly outfit like NOAA, but while those fish officials are enhancing their statistical techniques they ought to consider enhancing their interrogation techniques just a little. While working that out, I neglected to mention that the project under discussion is called a "program," specifically the Marine Recreational Information Program. There's a reason for calling things programs, and that reason is the Vocabulary Commission of the College Football Coaching Society, whose influential lobbyists compel the government to call everything a program. Those coaches want you to think everybody says "program" all the time so you won't laugh at them when they do it. On another hand we've noticed that NOAA doesn't say it's "kicking off" this program, so maybe we're getting it mixed up with the NCAA or else we're just overstating the coaches' influence. As we've pointed out, the plan depends on accurate analysis of accurate catch and effort reports, or fishing time compared to the catch. It also counts on good-faith compliance with the religious principle that the sport of fishing deplores exaggeration, including the subcategory of understatement. Sadly, violations are common. Imagine weary fishing-doers at the end of a good day, sputtering back to the docks where a genial fellow disguised as a hanger-on begins a conversation: "Been fishing, have you?" "Could be." "Catch any?" "A few." "Federal agent," says the genial fellow, showing his badge and seeming a little less genial. "Who's in charge here?" Suggested answer: "Looks like you are." He opens your fish box. His eyes pop. "A few, you say?" he says, correctly guessing you have a few dozen. "All those fish are legal," you squawk. "Count them and measure them if you want." The agent doesn't care about that. He's not a state fish and wildlife officer, he explains, but an official federal scorekeeper for NOAA. As for you, lowlife, you have attempted to mislead him about your catch. "You're busted for perjury," he declares, wrapping your wrists and reciting your rights. We haven't delved into the details deeply enough to learn what penalties, if any, would befall the sinner in that scenario. Frankly, we find the prospect rather boring but if you're busted you may find it, ah, captivating. Many more details about the program can be seen at www.nmfs.noaa.gov/stories/2012/01/recfish_mrip.html. Click the "Fact sheet and case studies" link. Feedback: The author will accept compliments and complaints emailed to witzfish@att.net. like these are called potential biases, and can skew the actual numbers if they're not fully accounted for." Testing the new methods on old data, statisticians found the results different but without consistent variations. Results varied from species to species with some estimates increasing and others decreasing. Anyway, the numbers are supposed to be more accurate now. Deep down, those statisticians want to believe that a government estimate in this category, with all its catch cards and numerous other information collectors, human and statistical, is much better than a wild guess. Well, at least it's a little better. I don't know much about higher mathematics, but I can explain this by using lower arithmetic. Let's say you're a government statistician, and also a fishing-doer. You go fishing with me, and you keep score yours and mine both. I catch more because I fish while you use your fingers to count. You have a stopwatch so you can relate our combined catch to exactly the number of hours and minutes we spent fishing, not counting the time we spend eating lunch and ducking under a bridge until a storm passes. So there you have an accurate catch and effort report from two trustworthy fishermen. Trouble is, to make a confident estimate of everyone's catch vs. effort, two guys aren't enough of a sample. For your purpose today, you need 98 more, so we go back to the docks where you try to interview that many. Assuming a lot of them want to be accurate but didn't keep score, and factoring in how much beer they drank which you can document by the empty cans unless they threw those overboard, and counting the keepers in their coolers if they let you, can you report your data to the government without blushing? When you're done, all you know is that you have accurate info on two guys out of 100. You'd like to think 20 or 40 or all 100 did, but you're guessing. Still and all, two for sure out of 100 is better than a wild guess, yes? Your methods of gathering data from the other 98 are better at helping you to analyze it, but what good is that if the info itself is wrong or inadequate? I'm rooting for this project to succeed and so should you. If the government doesn't keep trying to achieve accuracy and credibility, the public will begin to perceive it as inaccurate and incredible. We can't risk that. I couldn't find anything in NOAA's large amount of public material on this topic about how to make fishingdoers tell the truth. For example, there's no mention of water-boarding even though most of the data will be gathered where there's unlimited water and dock planks ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist NOAA tells us it has created new methods to improve government estimates of recreational saltwater fish catches. What, again? Yes. A federal law, the Magnuson-Stevens Act, requires it as a tool for better fisheries management. That answers the other question: What for? Let's fish that bait deeper: NOAA says detailed, timely, scientifically sound estimates are needed to ensure the sustainability of ocean resources. It acknowledges that we whose fishing would be regulated doubt the reliability and credibility of the recreational fishing catch and effort estimates previously used. As federal agencies go, NOAA is a nice one. It doesn't keep as many secrets as other federal agencies, and it more readily admits mistakes such as depending up to now on really bad, entirely unreliable catch data to create fishery management regulations. That tempts another question: Why change now? Please, let's not be snotty. NOAA is making an earnest, well-intentioned effort to compile better data and make better rules not that top fish officials there necessarily believe they can, but they try because they are made to do it. Here are some quotations: "The new catch methodology fixes a mismatch between the way we collect information from anglers during dockside interviews, and how we use that data to generate catch estimates... "We are now taking into consideration things like possible differences in catch rates at high-activity and low-activity fishing sites, or the amount of fishing occurring at different parts of the day.

ADMIRALTY LAW O Captain, my captain' MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist "O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; "The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won; " This of course is the opening line of Walt Whitman's famous metaphorical poem on the death of Abraham Lincoln. The country is depicted as the "ship of state" with President Lincoln as its captain. Accordingly, the captain was responsible for saving the ship from unmitigated disaster even though he perishes in the process. On Jan. 13 (i.e. Friday the 13), the Italian-flagged vessel Costa Concordia hit an underwater object off the coast of Giglio Island and eventually listed to one side and sank. The captain of the ship had already departed. So whatever else can be said concerning the incident, most casual observers would conclude that the captain of the Costa Concordia was no Abraham Lincoln. Being the master of an oceangoing vessel is as close as any to the genuine "buck stops here" occupation. Generally, a ship's captain is not only responsible for navigation but also has the final word on most matters concerning crew and staff conduct, safety procedures, work schedules, deviations from accepted course headings, as well as any and all matters regarding the good and safety of the ship and its voyage. It is a responsibility that cannot usually be relegated to someone else. As of this writing, the full circumstances regarding the wreck of the Costa Concordia are still being investigated. Over 4,000 men and women were aboard the ship at the time of the accident. Presently, 32 people are presumed dead. It's believed that the captain failed to act in the best interests of the vessel, crew and passengers as stipulated by the duties required. Some say this alleged negligence could hold the vessel's owners directly responsible and subject to paying large monetary awards to the surviving passengers and crew, as well as to the heirs of the decedents. But this assumption may not be accurate. Both in the U.S and Europe, there is a long-standing tradition in maritime law that limits the liability of vessel owners through either statute or recognized contract. Generally, these limitations can only be overcome by demonstrating that the owner had privity and knowledge of the negligent acts that caused the incident. This can prove to be a difficult hurdle to overcome. Should these limitations remain in place, awards from the Costa Concordia sinking may be far less than expected. Lawsuits are said to have been filed in Miami despite clauses in cruise tickets and contracts setting the legal venue for claims in Europe. Apparently, this is happening because the Italian company that owns the Costa Concordia is a subsidiary of a Miami-based cruise line and is therefore subject to U.S. jurisdiction. Therefore agreements that say otherwise should be ignored. This is probably occurring in the hopes that a U.S. venue may be more receptive for setting aside an owner's limitation of liability than Italy. Whether or not these suits stay in Miami remains to be seen. Particularly in non-death actions, precedent appears to indicate that keeping these suits in the United States could be very challenging. Some affected parties have already been offered a settlement package by the cruise line. If there is a bright side, it is that greater safety procedures and guidelines are already being put in place by many cruise ships in that vicinity to prevent similar tragedies. What happened to the Costa Concordia should be a reminder that no matter how big or luxurious a vessel may be, the dangers of being at sea always lurk just below the surface in this case, quite literally.

7 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times Meet Jessica Geffen, Gordon R. Skellett, Jr., and Gia Valdez, of Coconut Grove. Jessica, 29, is a writer, yoga teacher and bookstore employee. Gordon, 37, is a boat captain and engineer on big yachts. Gia, 9, spends her time exploring the world and being a third grader. The family lives aboard their 1968, 50foot Hatteras named Felicity Jessica describes their boating experience: Why did you choose this particular craft? We love the classic style and look of the boat. We really feel we got the best model with its three cabins, three heads, separate dining area, inside steering station and fly bridge. The Hatteras name helped us in our decision as they still manufacture boats and have a great online owners forum with tons of friendly boat owners willing to talk and give advice. How did you come to live aboard? Several years ago Gordon said, "We are going to buy a boat and live on it." I said, "ok," knowing he was just verbalizing his dreams and thinking I wouldn't mind since I'm up for anything! We've been living aboard full time for the past six years on different boats including a 424 Pearson and a 36-foot Ericson. We were on both sailboats when we cruised the islands of the eastern and western Caribbean. Felicity is our first motorboat. What would be your dream boat? I'm so happy to say that we are on our dream boat and we plan to take her to the eastern Caribbean, spending a good bit of time in the Grenadines. When did boating become a part of your lives? Gordon has been on boats his whole life starting as a kid with his family, and then fell in love with sailing on a Hobie Cat. That grew into a passion for living aboard and cruising, which he then shared with our daughter and me.It's all she knows. Where do you like to go locally? We're really enjoying Biscayne Bay and the ability to visit Stiltsville, the "Sandbar," Key Biscayne and its national parks as well as popping over to Bayside's nightlife scene at Miamarina. The options are endless. Describe your scariest experience on the water: Transiting the Gulf Stream at night and dodging Just go! You will figure out everything else while you experience life underway! Listen to what people say but only let it go in one ear and out the other, absorb it, but go with your own gut. Do you find boating challenging in South Florida? We haven't found too many challenges in South Florida. Marinas are a bit pricey but other than that there are so many options. Tell us what you like best about boating in this area: Who doesn't love sunny South Florida? Each town is a destination of its own. Here we are in the boating capital of the world! ships, scanning the horizon and trying to decipher all those different lights is the scariest thing we've dealt with. Generally, we have not had many scary experiences. Name the one item you cant live without on board: We can live without a lot of items, but not without our two boat kitties. They have been with us through so many countries. We adopted them in Turks and Caicos and the British West Indies, and they even flew from Guatemala back to the U.S. last year! They are Gia's sisters! Any advice for new boaters? They're living their dreams aboard 50' Hatteras Jessica Geffen and Gordon R.

And they come from all over Canada, New York, California," Dudas said. "And we get buyers from all over the world. A lot of people come to do both. It's a real wheeler-dealer kind of thing." It takes several passes to take it all in, and you can rummage around for hours to find a specific item. Or, sometimes, it's right under your nose if you look hard enough. Antique ships' clocks might be displayed right next to state-of-the-art electronics while brand new SCUBA gear can share a booth with vintage outboard motors and marine artwork. Does your boat need a replacement prop? You'll likely find hundreds, new and used in all sizes and conditions. If it goes on a boat, or on a boater, it's probably there for the picking. "I went last year on the last day," said Phillip Samuels, a full-time cruiser currently based in Marathon. "For cruising sailors, there wasn't as much as I'd hoped, but by the time I got there, a lot of good stuff had probably been sold." Some people, like Randall Franks of Key West, "just enjoy looking through boat junk." "I'm an artist, so I look for stuff that other people might not find useful anymore," he said. "But it's great for me, because a lot of my work is nautical." Bill Jessup has been coming down from Daytona Beach for the event since he moved to Florida from New York in 1987. "The best selection is on the first day, of course, and the amount of stuff to look through is always monumental. Of course, Sunday is the best day to get a great bargain, because if it hasn't sold yet, the sellers would rather make a deal than load it back up and take it home." He said he usually has his best luck with the individual sellers, but sometimes he'll get a great price for a new item from a retailer. "I'm always amazed at the range of items and services, honestly," he said. "We didn't have anything like this where I come from."

11 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times They came in the 1840s to escape the devastating potato famine. And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry. Enduring hardships and privations, Irish immigrants replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allen's "Forgotten Skills of Cooking," (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach everyday home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. "There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a craving to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat,"Allen said. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. "In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world," said Allen with pride. "So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more complex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass." Cottage Pie with Garlic Butter The cheese in this crust and the lump of garlic butter that melts into the center make this into something very special. Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner or nutty-flavored cheese 1/4 cup grated aged cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six individual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixture over the top. Sprinkle with grated cheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad. Roux Roux can be stored in a cool place and used as required, or it can be made up on the spot if preferred to thicken up a sauce. 8 tablespoons Irish butter Scant cup all-purpose flour Melt butter in a pan and cook flour in it for 2 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator. Garlic Butter Slather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden. Irish Apple Cake Irish Apple Cake varies from house to house, and the technique has been passed from mother to daughter in farmhouses all over the country for generations. Serves about 6 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 8 tablespoons Irish butter 1/2 cup superfine sugar, divided 1 egg About 1/4 to 1/2 cup whole milk 1 to 2 cooking apples 2 to 3 cloves, optional Egg wash 10-inch ovenproof plate Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs, then add 1/3 cup superfine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an ovenproof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this "pastry" is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with superfine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream.

16 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM March2012 Waterfront Times wedding ring in a concrete ball, along with a loved one's ashes; another spelled out "I love you, Dad" with pebbles on the ball's surface. The balls can weigh 600 to 4,000 pounds, depending on how many people are included; the largest can handle a family of four. Costs range from about $2,995 to $6,995. Ashes to dust to diamonds As it turns out, your cremated ashes can be made into jewelry for your family and friends to wear and remember you by. In a seven-step process, a company called Cremation Solutions will turn a few ounces of cremains into a diamond; depending on color and carat size, the cost runs anywhere from $2,500 to $25,000. For $150, order a hand-blown glass pendant that holds a tiny portion of the ashes to "wear as a necklace or hang from your rear-view mirror," the company says. Cremation of a different kind A new, eco-friendly version of cremation was first tried in Florida in 2010. Instead of fire, resomation, also known as bio-cremation, relies on mild heat, pressure and a water and alkali solution (potassium hydroxide) to dissolve bodily tissues into a clear, sterile liquid that advocates say can be safely poured down a drain. Metals from artificial joints, implants or fillings are recovered and disposed of, and then the bones are reduced to ash, just as it's done with regular cremation, and returned to the family. What's so green about that? Resomation uses only one-seventh the electricity and gas involved in flamebased cremation. And it's free of the mercury pollution from dental fillings and carbon dioxide emissions that are byproducts of the 1,800-degree Fahrenheit temperatures needed in conventional cremation. So far bio-cremation is legal in only eight states: Florida, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Oregon. New York and New Jersey are considering it. And because this technique requires new machinery, it can be more expensive than regular cremation from $1,000 on up. It's your funeral,so plan it the way you want Up and away Aching for one last adventure? For anywhere from $1,000 to $12,000 (not including the cost of cremation), Celestis Memorial Spaceflights will launch "a symbolic portion" of your loved one's cremains (less than would fill half a lipstick tube) into earth orbit, onto the lunar surface, or into deep space. So far, ashes from 600 people have rocketed from Earth, but only one has gone to the moon. That was Eugene Shoemaker, who selected and trained Apollo astronauts in lunar geology. A medical condition prevented him from following his first career choice as an astronaut. But on Jan. 6, 1998, he (one gram of him, at least) finally boarded NASA's Lunar Prospector mission and made it to the moon. Frozen in time Hoping to return to the mortal coil? You can arrange to freeze your body (or just your head that's cheaper) on the chance that in the future medical science might be able to bring you back. The cost for becoming a corpsicle: $28,000 to as much as $200,000. Cryogenic freezing has been around for decades now. Some 200 bodies are said to be in storage in liquid nitrogen, and so far it has been a one-way trip for them. (Despite what you may have heard, Walt Disney is not among them. His death certificate shows that he was cremated and buried in California.) Sustainable burials Concerned about burial space running out? If your body is sent to Australia, Upright Burials will bury you vertically to ensure you take up the least amount of space in a cemetery field that is kept in a natural state. If you're not willing to go that far, consider a host of green burial alternatives to save money and natural resources. Home funerals and even backyard burials were common in the United States into the 20th century, and they are still legal in most states. The nonprofit Green Burial Council offers a downloadable guide to help plan a green burial. Why do it? Each year, according to the council, cemeteries nationwide bury more than 30 million boardfeet of hardwood and 90,000 tons of steel in coffins, 17,000 tons of steel and copper in vaults, and 1.6 million tons of reinforced concrete in vaults, and more than 750,000 gallons of formaldehyde-laden embalming fluid. Donate to science It's not too late to get into show business. You can join the Body Worlds exhibit post-mortem and have yours become one of the see-through bodies frozen in action that tour the world, educating audiences about human anatomy. Thousands have already signed up to have their bodies undergo the plastination process, according to the Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany, which picks up the tab. If the spotlight isn't your thing, you can still donate your body to science and have the medical school of your choice pay the handling charges. The University of Florida State Anatomical Board has posted online contact information for medical schools that participate in whole-body donations.

The topic is awkward on all sides. If youre elderly, you may worry that just talking about what happens after death could be depressing or bad luck. (Is that wood-knocking I hear?) And if youre the child of an elderly person, you dont want it to look like youre jumping the gun or already toting up your inheritance. Recently, though, I came across some unusual options beyond the standard burial and cremation. And it struck me that saying something like, Hey, Dad, did you hear we can turn your ashes into diamonds? might be an excellent way to get the discussion rolling on how this final act should play out. I tried it. I discovered that even though my folks purchased burial plots many years ago, they have now decided they want to be cremated. Go figure. I suggested they sell the plots and take themselves to a fancy dinner. In the spirit of public service to caregivers and their loved ones, heres a quick rundown of some alternatives to the traditional coffin burial. Discuss amongst yourselves.With the fishesDon Brawley got the idea for his company, Eternal Reefs, one day a few years back from his father-in-law, who was watching as Brawley dropped concrete balls in the Florida sea to build up disappearing coral reefs. He said, I want you to put my remains in those artificial reefs, so I can spend eternity with the grouper and the snapper, Mr. Brawley recalled. He did as his father-in-law asked, and continues to do for others, too. Families can simply send the remains to Mr. Brawley to incorporate into the concrete balls, which he supplies free to seven state agencies to help rebuild reefs. Or relatives can get even more involved.

Now hes ready for this years event taking place from March 15-18 in the Dania Jai Alai parking lot. The only one I couldnt make it to was in 2007, during the period they were in Dolphins Stadium, said Fitzgerald, owner of Sailorman New and Used Marine Equipment in Fort Lauderdale. It just wasnt convenient for me that year. Like a lot of people, I was glad when they came back to the Jai Alai lot. Self proclaimed as the largest event of its type in the world, the Dania Marine Flea Market has drawn bargain-hunting boaters of all kinds to this quaint beach city since 1978. The Jai Alai lot has been its iconic location, but it was held in the stadium three times, from 2005 to 2007 due to construction plans at the Jai Alai facility, said event coordinator Jennifer Dudas. Its return to Dania was a relief to all, she added. True to its name, the four-day event is a bona fide flea market geared to boaters. Its laid-back, almost partylike atmosphere draws everyone from grandpas clearing out their garages to corporate retailers with the latest gear. Marine equipment, coral-encrusted antiques, used boats, fishing tackle, diving gear, marine artwork and more is up for grabs. Hundreds of new and used items are sold often below retail value and food vendors are also in ample supply to feed the masses while they browse. The first year they had it, people just showed up in trucks and sold stuff out the back, or they set their things right on the ground, Fitzgerald recalled. It didnt get sophisticated until years later. Now, we all have booths with tables. Fitzgerald said Sailorman usually occupies between two to six booths. Sometimes we bring a lot of stuff to sell right here. But we spend a lot of our time meeting people and handing out fliers, because what were really hoping to do is get them to also come by the store, since its so close. We buy a few things, too. Sailorman is known in the cruising community as a place to find almost anything new or used for a boat. Fitzgerald said his store is a natural fit for the event. Clay Hansen owns a similar business in St. Augustine called Sailors Exchange. Hansen and his brother Mike bought the store last year from Sinclair Schindler, who opened it decades ago. This will be my first time, Hansen said. But Sinclairs going to go with us, to show us the ropes. Im pretty excited about it. Hansen said hes especially interested in finding antique nautical items. Hell bring along a wide sampling of his stores inventory, such as line, hardware, hatches, blocks and other sailing equipment. Sellers pay $370 per booth, some taking up several in a block, Dudas said.

How about if the fish leaps and falls on your tight line, snapping it? No, there are worse things. What if that tarpon swims right up to your boat yelling cheese! and holding still just long enough for a great photo but your buddy fumbles his camera overboard? Yes, thats terrible, but this is worse: You catch that fish and then, just as youre turning it loose with its breathing and blood chemistry totally out of whack, a big ol shark bites your tarpon in two, and its your fault. A lot of us sort of knew that in a general way before FWC fish scientist Kathryn Guindons latest research came out, but now that shes published her findings we can quit disagreeing about the stress that happens to big tarpon we catch and release, compared to small ones, and just how serious the effects are. The harder and longer the fight, the more serious the effects, Guindon found. Its worse for the big ones because it takes longer to lick them. A tarpon under 10 pounds can be caught and released in a couple of minutes. If you worry about causing harm by lifting a smaller tarpon out of the water by its chin for the minute or so it takes to shoot photos, Guindons findings tell us gentle handling is more important for the big ones (70 pounds and up) than the little ones (less than 10 pounds). That doesnt mean its cool to be careless just that we dont have to treat a 9-pound tarpon like an emergency case. Guindon and her research team went tarpon fishing, blood-tested the fish they caught and compared them with others that hadnt just been through a fight. They also held the smaller tarpon out of the water for 60 seconds, the way a sport fisher would while removing hooks and posing for pix, and tested their blood. Then they compared the tests to those of tarpon that were not held out of water. There was no significant stress difference. Heres how FWC expresses the findings, in language we hope you understand: Battling an angler is strenuous exercise for a hooked tarpon. The battle includes heavy pulling by all involved, plus acrobatic leaps and endurance swimming for the tarpon. Once the oxygen supplied to the blood from breathing through the gills runs short, the tarpon has to tap into the energy reserves found in the muscles to fuel the fight. This disrupts internal electrolyte and acid-base balance, builds up lactic acid in the muscles, and dumps lactate into the blood consequences that could affect the health and survival of a tarpon after release. Losing a big one to a shark is hard to blame on anyone else except the shark. If one detects a weakened, struggling fish in your custody, it will act so fast you wont hear it calling, Dibs on the tarpon! Your job as a conscientious fishing-doer is to avoid weakening a tarpon enough for that to happen. Use appropriate tackle light enough to make it a fair fight for the fish, but heavy enough to reel it in without taking very long. Finding the balance is tricky, but if youre fishing too light a 70-pounder will let you know quickly by running your line out or breaking off. If you can keep it under control, get it over with. If you cant, use a heavier-duty rod and reel. Handling a hooked tarpon carefully and quickly and releasing it in the absence of large predators will increase its chance of surviving the angler's fight, the FWC declared. It didnt say what to do in the predators presence. All we know is that hollering, Scram! wont work. See the FWC summary of the tarpon findings at http://myfwc.com/research/saltwater/tarpon/catchrelease/stress-effects. At the bottom of that page is a link to Guindons entire report. If youre fascinated by what goes on at the bottom of the ocean but cant get down there yourself, the list of next best things includes a close look inside the research submarine Antipodes and a chance to pick the brains of its crew. That includes local schoolteachers whove been diving in it. The sub is in the Miami area from March 2-11, based at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas Biscayne Nature Center with three of those days devoted to public openhouse events. Try to make it on opening day Friday, March 2 when the sub will be on public display from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the nature center. Thats inside Crandon Park on Key Biscayne; you can find driving directions on its website, www.biscaynenaturecenter.org. After seven days of non-public educational activities, including teacher dives, the weekend of March 10-11 will be devoted to more public appearances including those teachers at certain docks.

Floridas newest gag grouper regulations for the Gulf of Mexico establish a recreational open season beginning July 1 and lasting to the end of October. The state dates, covering water up to 9 miles offshore, match the newest federal regulations for waters beyond the 9-mile mark. The last state season for gag grouper was closed last Nov. 16. The Fish and Wildlife Commission authorized executive director Nick Wiley to issue an executive order creating a separate gag season for waters off four eastern Panhandle counties: Taylor, Jefferson, Wakulla and Franklin. That season will be open in April, May and June, when the fish are most available in that area. It will be closed there from July through October. The Commission also changed the commercial size limit for gag from 24 inches to 22 inches, total length. Gray Ingram of Jupiter and Betsy Crudele of Fort Lauderdale, who won Overall Male and Overall Lady angler of the year tagging honors in last years tagging competition of The Billfish Foundation, have done it again. Deadline: Midnight on Sunday, March 25. For all the rules, the prizes and the work of previous winners, see: www.rsmas.miami.edu/outreach/underwater-photography. Five marine science scholars at Florida universities received the $5,000 Guy Harvey Scholarship Award from the famous artists Guy Harvey Ocean Foundation. Their work on permit, sharks, billfish and marine chemistry ranges from the deeply complex to basic things that fishing-doers sometimes wonder about without following up. For example, how do billfish use their bills for feeding, other than smacking their prey? M. Laura Habegger, at the University of South Florida, is using physics and engineering principles to find out more. Her objectives include development of tackle to keep billfish out of commercial bycatch, and reduce stress on those caught in tournaments. Sarah Stephens work at the University of Florida has practical applications for flats fishing. She is teaching Caribbean guides to use dart tags that will track the movements of permit, a prized gamefish whose ways are not too well known. Suppose you could treat your fishhooks with something to make sharks let them alone even if they like the bait. Ha ha, you say? Kier Smith at Florida Atlantic is treating hooks with a graphite-zinc mixture, and preliminary tests indicate that sharks wont bite them. Smiths goal is to keep sharks out of trouble by turning them off commercial longlines. Felipe Carvalhos project at the University of Florida is blue shark population management, supporting the training of scientists and technicians in remote sensing methods to track shark movements. Sean Bignami at the University of Miami is studying cobia and dolphin fish to learn how ocean acidification might affect early development of large marine fish. NAUTICAL NEWS | FROM PAGE 3 Since 1990, the foundations worldwide tag-releaserecovery competition has contributed to scientific tracking of the movements of sailfish, spearfish, swordfish and blue, black, striped and white marlin in the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans. When fish caught, tagged and released by Ingram, Crudele and others are recaptured sometimes as far as 2,000 miles away they give up valuable information about billfish migration. Ingram also repeated his victory last year as leading Overall Male Angler for all species. Crudele also was top tagging angler for Atlantic sailfish. Other winners in the Atlantic are Sam Jennings of Juno Beach for blue marlin and Richard Gudoian of Key Largo for swordfish. The top tagging captains on the Atlantic include Floridians Mike Lemon (the skipper of Jennings boat Revenge) for blue marlin and Sean OConnor of Key Largo for swordfish.

5 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times made of sturdy lumber. That might be too testy a topic for a friendly outfit like NOAA, but while those fish officials are enhancing their statistical techniques they ought to consider enhancing their interrogation techniques just a little. While working that out, I neglected to mention that the project under discussion is called a program, specifically the Marine Recreational Information Program. Theres a reason for calling things programs, and that reason is the Vocabulary Commission of the College Football Coaching Society, whose influential lobbyists compel the government to call everything a program. Those coaches want you to think everybody says program all the time so you wont laugh at them when they do it. On another hand weve noticed that NOAA doesnt say its kicking off this program, so maybe were getting it mixed up with the NCAA or else were just overstating the coaches influence. As weve pointed out, the plan depends on accurate analysis of accurate catch and effort reports, or fishing time compared to the catch. It also counts on good-faith compliance with the religious principle that the sport of fishing deplores exaggeration, including the subcategory of understatement. Sadly, violations are common. Imagine weary fishing-doers at the end of a good day, sputtering back to the docks where a genial fellow disguised as a hanger-on begins a conversation: Been fishing, have you? Could be. Catch any? A few. Federal agent, says the genial fellow, showing his badge and seeming a little less genial. Whos in charge here? Suggested answer: Looks like you are. He opens your fish box. His eyes pop. A few, you say? he says, correctly guessing you have a few dozen. All those fish are legal, you squawk. Count them and measure them if you want. The agent doesnt care about that. Hes not a state fish and wildlife officer, he explains, but an official federal scorekeeper for NOAA. As for you, lowlife, you have attempted to mislead him about your catch. Youre busted for perjury, he declares, wrapping your wrists and reciting your rights. We havent delved into the details deeply enough to learn what penalties, if any, would befall the sinner in that scenario. Frankly, we find the prospect rather boring but if youre busted you may find it, ah, captivating. Many more details about the program can be seen at www.nmfs.noaa.gov/stories/2012/01/recfish_mrip.html. Click the Fact sheet and case studies link. Feedback: The author will accept compliments and complaints emailed to witzfish@att.net. like these are called potential biases, and can skew the actual numbers if theyre not fully accounted for. Testing the new methods on old data, statisticians found the results different but without consistent variations. Results varied from species to species with some estimates increasing and others decreasing. Anyway, the numbers are supposed to be more accurate now. Deep down, those statisticians want to believe that a government estimate in this category, with all its catch cards and numerous other information collectors, human and statistical, is much better than a wild guess. Well, at least its a little better. I dont know much about higher mathematics, but I can explain this by using lower arithmetic. Lets say youre a government statistician, and also a fishing-doer. You go fishing with me, and you keep score yours and mine both. I catch more because I fish while you use your fingers to count. You have a stopwatch so you can relate our combined catch to exactly the number of hours and minutes we spent fishing, not counting the time we spend eating lunch and ducking under a bridge until a storm passes. So there you have an accurate catch and effort report from two trustworthy fishermen. Trouble is, to make a confident estimate of everyones catch vs. effort, two guys arent enough of a sample. For your purpose today, you need 98 more, so we go back to the docks where you try to interview that many. Assuming a lot of them want to be accurate but didnt keep score, and factoring in how much beer they drank which you can document by the empty cans unless they threw those overboard, and counting the keepers in their coolers if they let you, can you report your data to the government without blushing? When youre done, all you know is that you have accurate info on two guys out of 100. Youd like to think 20 or 40 or all 100 did, but youre guessing. Still and all, two for sure out of 100 is better than a wild guess, yes? Your methods of gathering data from the other 98 are better at helping you to analyze it, but what good is that if the info itself is wrong or inadequate? Im rooting for this project to succeed and so should you. If the government doesnt keep trying to achieve accuracy and credibility, the public will begin to perceive it as inaccurate and incredible. We cant risk that. I couldnt find anything in NOAAs large amount of public material on this topic about how to make fishingdoers tell the truth. For example, theres no mention of water-boarding even though most of the data will be gathered where theres unlimited water and dock planks ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times Columnist NOAA tells us it has created new methods to improve government estimates of recreational saltwater fish catches. What, again? Yes. A federal law, the Magnuson-Stevens Act, requires it as a tool for better fisheries management. That answers the other question: What for? Lets fish that bait deeper: NOAA says detailed, timely, scientifically sound estimates are needed to ensure the sustainability of ocean resources. It acknowledges that we whose fishing would be regulated doubt the reliability and credibility of the recreational fishing catch and effort estimates previously used. As federal agencies go, NOAA is a nice one. It doesnt keep as many secrets as other federal agencies, and it more readily admits mistakes such as depending up to now on really bad, entirely unreliable catch data to create fishery management regulations. That tempts another question: Why change now? Please, lets not be snotty. NOAA is making an earnest, well-intentioned effort to compile better data and make better rules not that top fish officials there necessarily believe they can, but they try because they are made to do it. Here are some quotations: The new catch methodology fixes a mismatch between the way we collect information from anglers during dockside interviews, and how we use that data to generate catch estimates... We are now taking into consideration things like possible differences in catch rates at high-activity and low-activity fishing sites, or the amount of fishing occurring at different parts of the day.

ADMIRALTY LAW O Captain, my captain MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist O CAPTAIN! my Captain! our fearful trip is done; The ship has weatherd every rack, the prize we sought is won; This of course is the opening line of Walt Whitmans famous metaphorical poem on the death of Abraham Lincoln. The country is depicted as the ship of state with President Lincoln as its captain. Accordingly, the captain was responsible for saving the ship from unmitigated disaster even though he perishes in the process. On Jan. 13 (i.e. Friday the 13), the Italian-flagged vessel Costa Concordia hit an underwater object off the coast of Giglio Island and eventually listed to one side and sank. The captain of the ship had already departed. So whatever else can be said concerning the incident, most casual observers would conclude that the captain of the Costa Concordia was no Abraham Lincoln. Being the master of an oceangoing vessel is as close as any to the genuine buck stops here occupation. Generally, a ships captain is not only responsible for navigation but also has the final word on most matters concerning crew and staff conduct, safety procedures, work schedules, deviations from accepted course headings, as well as any and all matters regarding the good and safety of the ship and its voyage. It is a responsibility that cannot usually be relegated to someone else. As of this writing, the full circumstances regarding the wreck of the Costa Concordia are still being investigated. Over 4,000 men and women were aboard the ship at the time of the accident. Presently, 32 people are presumed dead. Its believed that the captain failed to act in the best interests of the vessel, crew and passengers as stipulated by the duties required. Some say this alleged negligence could hold the vessels owners directly responsible and subject to paying large monetary awards to the surviving passengers and crew, as well as to the heirs of the decedents. But this assumption may not be accurate. Both in the U.S and Europe, there is a long-standing tradition in maritime law that limits the liability of vessel owners through either statute or recognized contract. Generally, these limitations can only be overcome by demonstrating that the owner had privity and knowledge of the negligent acts that caused the incident. This can prove to be a difficult hurdle to overcome. Should these limitations remain in place, awards from the Costa Concordia sinking may be far less than expected. Lawsuits are said to have been filed in Miami despite clauses in cruise tickets and contracts setting the legal venue for claims in Europe. Apparently, this is happening because the Italian company that owns the Costa Concordia is a subsidiary of a Miami-based cruise line and is therefore subject to U.S. jurisdiction. Therefore agreements that say otherwise should be ignored. This is probably occurring in the hopes that a U.S. venue may be more receptive for setting aside an owners limitation of liability than Italy. Whether or not these suits stay in Miami remains to be seen. Particularly in non-death actions, precedent appears to indicate that keeping these suits in the United States could be very challenging. Some affected parties have already been offered a settlement package by the cruise line. If there is a bright side, it is that greater safety procedures and guidelines are already being put in place by many cruise ships in that vicinity to prevent similar tragedies. What happened to the Costa Concordia should be a reminder that no matter how big or luxurious a vessel may be, the dangers of being at sea always lurk just below the surface in this case, quite literally.

7 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times Meet Jessica Geffen, Gordon R. Skellett, Jr., and Gia Valdez, of Coconut Grove. Jessica, 29, is a writer, yoga teacher and bookstore employee. Gordon, 37, is a boat captain and engineer on big yachts. Gia, 9, spends her time exploring the world and being a third grader. The family lives aboard their 1968, 50foot Hatteras named Felicity Jessica describes their boating experience: Why did you choose this particular craft? We love the classic style and look of the boat. We really feel we got the best model with its three cabins, three heads, separate dining area, inside steering station and fly bridge. The Hatteras name helped us in our decision as they still manufacture boats and have a great online owners forum with tons of friendly boat owners willing to talk and give advice. How did you come to live aboard? Several years ago Gordon said, We are going to buy a boat and live on it. I said, ok, knowing he was just verbalizing his dreams and thinking I wouldnt mind since Im up for anything! Weve been living aboard full time for the past six years on different boats including a 424 Pearson and a 36-foot Ericson. We were on both sailboats when we cruised the islands of the eastern and western Caribbean. Felicity is our first motorboat. What would be your dream boat? Im so happy to say that we are on our dream boat and we plan to take her to the eastern Caribbean, spending a good bit of time in the Grenadines. When did boating become a part of your lives? Gordon has been on boats his whole life starting as a kid with his family, and then fell in love with sailing on a Hobie Cat. That grew into a passion for living aboard and cruising, which he then shared with our daughter and me.Its all she knows. Where do you like to go locally? Were really enjoying Biscayne Bay and the ability to visit Stiltsville, the Sandbar, Key Biscayne and its national parks as well as popping over to Baysides nightlife scene at Miamarina. The options are endless. Describe your scariest experience on the water: Transiting the Gulf Stream at night and dodging Just go! You will figure out everything else while you experience life underway! Listen to what people say but only let it go in one ear and out the other, absorb it, but go with your own gut. Do you find boating challenging in South Florida? We havent found too many challenges in South Florida. Marinas are a bit pricey but other than that there are so many options. Tell us what you like best about boating in this area: Who doesnt love sunny South Florida? Each town is a destination of its own. Here we are in the boating capital of the world! ships, scanning the horizon and trying to decipher all those different lights is the scariest thing weve dealt with. Generally, we have not had many scary experiences. Name the one item you cant live without on board: We can live without a lot of items, but not without our two boat kitties. They have been with us through so many countries. We adopted them in Turks and Caicos and the British West Indies, and they even flew from Guatemala back to the U.S. last year! They are Gias sisters! Any advice for new boaters? Theyre living their dreams aboard 50' Hatteras Jessica Geffen and Gordon R. Skellett, Jr., of Coconut Grove, live aboard their 50-foot Hatteras with their daughter, Gia, and two cats. BOATER PROFILE

And they come from all over Canada, New York, California, Dudas said. And we get buyers from all over the world. A lot of people come to do both. Its a real wheeler-dealer kind of thing. It takes several passes to take it all in, and you can rummage around for hours to find a specific item. Or, sometimes, its right under your nose if you look hard enough. Antique ships clocks might be displayed right next to state-of-the-art electronics while brand new SCUBA gear can share a booth with vintage outboard motors and marine artwork. Does your boat need a replacement prop? You'll likely find hundreds, new and used in all sizes and conditions. If it goes on a boat, or on a boater, its probably there for the picking. I went last year on the last day, said Phillip Samuels, a full-time cruiser currently based in Marathon. For cruising sailors, there wasnt as much as Id hoped, but by the time I got there, a lot of good stuff had probably been sold. Some people, like Randall Franks of Key West, just enjoy looking through boat junk. Im an artist, so I look for stuff that other people might not find useful anymore, he said. But its great for me, because a lot of my work is nautical. Bill Jessup has been coming down from Daytona Beach for the event since he moved to Florida from New York in 1987. The best selection is on the first day, of course, and the amount of stuff to look through is always monumental. Of course, Sunday is the best day to get a great bargain, because if it hasnt sold yet, the sellers would rather make a deal than load it back up and take it home. He said he usually has his best luck with the individual sellers, but sometimes hell get a great price for a new item from a retailer. Im always amazed at the range of items and services, honestly, he said. We didnt have anything like this where I come from.

11 March2012 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM Waterfront Times They came in the 1840s to escape the devastating potato famine. And they stayed to become part of the fabric of America. Today 36.9 million U.S. residents claim Irish ancestry. Enduring hardships and privations, Irish immigrants replicated foods that reminded them of home dishes such as cottage pie and Irish apple cake. Below are recipes for these dishes from Darina Allen's Forgotten Skills of Cooking," (Kyle Books, 2009) now available in the U.S. Allen, considered the Julia Child of Ireland, is on a mission to teach everyday home cooks the kind of cooking skills early Irish immigrants would have practiced. There is a real revolution going on about food a longing, a craving to re-learn life skills like butchery, keeping chickens, growing vegetables and curing meat,Allen said. The recipes below feature Irish dairy products because dairying has been a part of Ireland for centuries, long before potatoes. In Ireland we can grow grass like nowhere else in the world, said Allen with pride. So we have fantastic butter, lovely cream and, of course, cheese. Butter is the fat of the land. Our animals are grass-fed. Grass-fed gives more flavor and more complex nutrients. This is what we are. Dairy products come from this beautiful, lush green grass. Cottage Pie with Garlic Butter The cheese in this crust and the lump of garlic butter that melts into the center make this into something very special. Serves 6 3 tablespoons olive oil 2 garlic cloves, mashed 1 small onion, chopped 1 pound beef, freshly ground 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves 1/2 cup dry white or red wine 1 cup beef stock 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1 tablespoon tomato paste Roux (recipe follows) Salt and freshly ground pepper For the Topping 3 pounds baking potatoes, unpeeled 1 cup whole milk, boiling Salt and freshly ground pepper 2 tablespoons Irish butter 1 tablespoon chopped chives (optional) 1/4 cup grated Dubliner or nutty-flavored cheese 1/4 cup grated aged cheddar To Serve Garlic Butter (recipe follows) Green salad Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add garlic and onion and fry until soft and slightly brown. Increase heat, add ground beef and thyme and fry until beef changes color. Add wine, half the stock, Worcestershire sauce, and tomato paste. Simmer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the unpeeled potatoes, then peel them. Add boiling milk and mash potatoes while they are still hot. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper, and add butter and chives, if using. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring the rest of the stock to a boil and thicken it well with roux. Stir it into beef it should be thick but still juicy. Taste and correct seasoning. Put meat mixture into one large or six individual pie dishes. Pipe or spread mashed potato mixture over the top. Sprinkle with grated cheeses. Bake for 30 minutes, until top is golden and slightly crispy. Serve with garlic butter and a green salad. Roux Roux can be stored in a cool place and used as required, or it can be made up on the spot if preferred to thicken up a sauce. 8 tablespoons Irish butter Scant cup all-purpose flour Melt butter in a pan and cook flour in it for 2 minutes on low heat, stirring occasionally. It will keep for two weeks in the refrigerator. Garlic Butter Slather over bruschetta or toast. Also great with grilled fish, meat, or vegetables. 8 tablespoons Irish butter 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley 3 to 5 cloves crushed garlic A few drops of freshly squeezed lemon juice Whip butter, then add in parsley, garlic and a few drops of lemon juice at a time. Roll into butter pats or form into a roll and wrap in parchment paper or foil, twisting each end. Refrigerate to harden. Irish Apple Cake Irish Apple Cake varies from house to house, and the technique has been passed from mother to daughter in farmhouses all over the country for generations. Serves about 6 2 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 8 tablespoons Irish butter 1/2 cup superfine sugar, divided 1 egg About 1/4 to 1/2 cup whole milk 1 to 2 cooking apples 2 to 3 cloves, optional Egg wash 10-inch ovenproof plate Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour and baking powder into bowl. Rub in butter with your fingertips until it resembles the texture of bread crumbs, then add 1/3 cup superfine sugar. Make a well in the center and mix to a soft dough with beaten egg and enough milk to form a soft dough. Turn out onto a board divide in two. Put one half onto an ovenproof plate and press it out with floured fingers to cover the base. Peel, core, and chop up apples. Place them on the dough and tuck in cloves, if using. Sprinkle over some or all remaining sugar, depending on the sweetness of the apples. Roll out the second half of the pastry and fit it on top easier said than done as this pastry is more like scone dough and as a result is very soft. Press the sides together, cut a slit through the lid, egg wash, and bake for about 40 minutes or until cooked through and nicely browned on top. Dredge with superfine sugar and serve warm with raw sugar and softly whipped cream.

16 WATERFRONTTIMES.COM March2012 Waterfront Times wedding ring in a concrete ball, along with a loved ones ashes; another spelled out I love you, Dad with pebbles on the balls surface. The balls can weigh 600 to 4,000 pounds, depending on how many people are included; the largest can handle a family of four. Costs range from about $2,995 to $6,995. Ashes to dust to diamonds As it turns out, your cremated ashes can be made into jewelry for your family and friends to wear and remember you by. In a seven-step process, a company called Cremation Solutions will turn a few ounces of cremains into a diamond; depending on color and carat size, the cost runs anywhere from $2,500 to $25,000. For $150, order a hand-blown glass pendant that holds a tiny portion of the ashes to wear as a necklace or hang from your rear-view mirror, the company says. Cremation of a different kind A new, eco-friendly version of cremation was first tried in Florida in 2010. Instead of fire, resomation, also known as bio-cremation, relies on mild heat, pressure and a water and alkali solution (potassium hydroxide) to dissolve bodily tissues into a clear, sterile liquid that advocates say can be safely poured down a drain. Metals from artificial joints, implants or fillings are recovered and disposed of, and then the bones are reduced to ash, just as its done with regular cremation, and returned to the family. Whats so green about that? Resomation uses only one-seventh the electricity and gas involved in flamebased cremation. And its free of the mercury pollution from dental fillings and carbon dioxide emissions that are byproducts of the 1,800-degree Fahrenheit temperatures needed in conventional cremation. So far bio-cremation is legal in only eight states: Florida, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Oregon. New York and New Jersey are considering it. And because this technique requires new machinery, it can be more expensive than regular cremation from $1,000 on up. Its your funeral,so plan it the way you want Up and away Aching for one last adventure? For anywhere from $1,000 to $12,000 (not including the cost of cremation), Celestis Memorial Spaceflights will launch a symbolic portion of your loved ones cremains (less than would fill half a lipstick tube) into earth orbit, onto the lunar surface, or into deep space. So far, ashes from 600 people have rocketed from Earth, but only one has gone to the moon. That was Eugene Shoemaker, who selected and trained Apollo astronauts in lunar geology. A medical condition prevented him from following his first career choice as an astronaut. But on Jan. 6, 1998, he (one gram of him, at least) finally boarded NASAs Lunar Prospector mission and made it to the moon. Frozen in time Hoping to return to the mortal coil? You can arrange to freeze your body (or just your head thats cheaper) on the chance that in the future medical science might be able to bring you back. The cost for becoming a corpsicle: $28,000 to as much as $200,000. Cryogenic freezing has been around for decades now. Some 200 bodies are said to be in storage in liquid nitrogen, and so far it has been a one-way trip for them. (Despite what you may have heard, Walt Disney is not among them. His death certificate shows that he was cremated and buried in California.) Sustainable burials Concerned about burial space running out? If your body is sent to Australia, Upright Burials will bury you vertically to ensure you take up the least amount of space in a cemetery field that is kept in a natural state. If youre not willing to go that far, consider a host of green burial alternatives to save money and natural resources. Home funerals and even backyard burials were common in the United States into the 20th century, and they are still legal in most states. The nonprofit Green Burial Council offers a downloadable guide to help plan a green burial. Why do it? Each year, according to the council, cemeteries nationwide bury more than 30 million boardfeet of hardwood and 90,000 tons of steel in coffins, 17,000 tons of steel and copper in vaults, and 1.6 million tons of reinforced concrete in vaults, and more than 750,000 gallons of formaldehyde-laden embalming fluid. Donate to science Its not too late to get into show business. You can join the Body Worlds exhibit post-mortem and have yours become one of the see-through bodies frozen in action that tour the world, educating audiences about human anatomy. Thousands have already signed up to have their bodies undergo the plastination process, according to the Institute for Plastination in Heidelberg, Germany, which picks up the tab. If the spotlight isnt your thing, you can still donate your body to science and have the medical school of your choice pay the handling charges. The University of Florida State Anatomical Board has posted online contact information for medical schools that participate in whole-body donations.
