6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times Both Miami-Dade and Broward counties made the top 10 list of the most fatal accidents, with Miami-Dade at number two (81 fatalities) and Broward at number six (30 fatalities). Nationally, the U.S. Coast Guard reported that in 2012, almost 71 percent of all fatal boating accident victims drowned, and of those, almost 85 percent were reported as not wearing a life jacket. So why don’t boaters automatically put on PFDs? “Probably the biggest excuse we hear is that they’re bulky and uncomfortable,” Sacks said. “In the old days, that was more true, but there are more options now.” The emergence of inflatable life jackets, which activate either manually or when submerged, has made wearing a PFD more comfortable, as they are less bulky and constrictive, Sacks said. An inflatable life jacket has twice the buoyancy of a traditional orange horseshoe life jacket and is less than half the size. Florida law requires that children under age 6 always wear a child-size PFD on boats less than 26 feet long when underway. “I’m not sure why the 26-foot limit was chosen,” Sacks said. “I think it should be all boats for young children.” The law also says anybody using a personal watercraft such as a jet ski must wear one at all times. Mark Ritchie of Dania Beach keeps plenty of PFDs aboard his 30-foot center console, but seldom wears one. “The first thing I do when I bring people on the boat is show them where they are,” Ritchie said. “I keep them easily accessible. But honestly, I don’t like wearing them. It’s often too hot, and half the time, I’m not even wearing a shirt.” He also said he does wear an inflatable life jacket when he’s alone on the boat, fishing offshore. Bellin said keeping PFDs “accessible” is often not enough. “There are so many scenarios where you just don't have time to go grab one,” Bellin said. “If you get knocked overboard by a sudden wave, or if there’s a collision, you're just going into the water, maybe even injured or unconscious. “As comfortable as the inflatable ones are today, there’s really no excuse for not having it on all the time. Honestly, I often forget I'm wearing mine and have gone into a restaurant with it still on.” Bellin, who bought a 20-foot Mako center console boat when he retired, said he’d been on boats before, but never owned one. “I decided right away that I should educate myself,” he said. “So, I signed up for some of the same courses I’m teaching now, eventually getting certified as an instructor. I’ve found that a lot of experienced boaters — the ones who think they know everything they need to know — are the ones most apt to get into bad situations.” John Reid of Fort Pierce has been around boats all his life, starting with an 8-foot dory when he was 9 years old. “When we were kids, of course, my dad always made us wear life jackets,” he said. “Back then, they were those big bulky things. And they were uncomfortable, and we felt like dorks wearing them. When I got to my teens and early 20s, I stopped wearing them, because it just wasn’t ‘cool’.” But about five years ago, Reid, now 31, started wearing an inflatable life jacket after a friend drowned on a fishing trip in the Keys. “It’s kind of like wearing a seat belt in a car,” he said. “I never used to do that, either. Then, they made us do it or get a ticket. I don’t know if it will ever go that far with life jackets, but I do think it’s a good idea for everybody to wear them, all the time you’re on the boat.” Sacks agreed that it was unlikely that the state would pass a law requiring boaters to wear them. “There are too many people opposed to it,” he said. “And really, it’s hard to legislate common sense.” Bellin said he will continue to preach the PFD gospel to his students anyway. “As soon as they show up, I introduce myself,” he said. “Then, I lay down the microphone, take off my backpack and put on my life preserver. And I tell them, ‘Don't leave the dock without it.’” Fountain Belzona Key Largo Tahoe Novurania Hobie Go Pro Yamaha Carbon Craft Bote VersaDock Hyperlite Tohatsu Chapman OBrien DaKine H2O Century Bic Laser Honda Cannon The Go-To People TM Nautical VenturesMarine Superstore50 South Bryan Rd.

Today’slifejacketstoutedaslessbulky,morebuoyant LIFE JACKET | FROM PAGE 1 Up close There are five different types of PFDs available. Here is a brief description of each of them. Type I PFDs, or offshore lifejackets, are the most buoyant PFDs and suitable for all water conditions, including rough or isolated water where rescue may be delayed. Although bulky in comparison to other PFDs, offshore jackets will turn most unconscious individuals to the face-up position. They range in sizes from adult to child. Type II PFDs, or near-shore buoyancy vests, are the most common in use and widely available. They are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly, and are not designed for long periods in rough water. They will turn some but not all unconscious wearers face-up in the water. This vest is less bulky than a Type I, and often the least expensive of the PFD types. Type III PFDs, or flotation aids, are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly. These PFDs are designed to keep the wearer in a vertical position, but it is the wearers’ responsibility to maneuver themselves into a face-up position. Type III PFDs will keep unconscious wearers face-up just as well as a Type II vest. These types of vests are the most comfortable to wear, and popular for recreational boating and fishing. Many inflatable life jackets are Type III PFDs. Type IV PFDs, to be thrown to a conscious person in the water, and are not designed to be worn. A few examples of a Type IV PFD are a buoyant cushion, a life ring, or a horseshoe buoy. Type VPFDs, to be worn for specific activities that will be described on the PFD’s label. To be effective, Type V PFDs must be worn according to these specifications, and many must be worn at all times in order to qualify as a PFD. A Type V label will also list its performance as Type I, II, or III.

14 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times WATERFRONTTIMES.COM ones win acceptance, not alienation. The fishing rules, still a work in progress, say you can fish and dive in the special zone, but not at anchor. Mooring buoys will be installed instead. So far so fair. Lobsters can’t be taken. Neither can grouper of any size, the idea being that little ones will be allowed to grow into the big, big ones that visitors to the park enjoy seeing while snorkeling and diving. Spear fishermen enjoy big grouper, too. So do hook and line fishing-doers, but there is this difference: Hook-and-liners can release what they catch. The grouper they let go catch their breath, hide a while and come out swimming like new. Stick one with a spear and it’s done for. There’s one exception for spear fishers in the special recreation zone’s rules. They’re allowed in there to spear all the lionfish they can, for lionfish are unwanted exotics that take over reefs and devour the forage of native species. That’s the only bone the spearers were thrown. Did someone shout “Thanks a lot!?” “It looks like the finger’s being put on us spear fishermen and we’re being pushed out,” said a man named Manny, already feeling deprived by marine sanctuaries off the Keys. “It’s just sanctuary after sanctuary, and what information do you have that we’re to blame? “We’re trying to help the environment. And you want me to protect your resource but you won’t let me use it.” When most of the steam was let off, Tony Grogan spoke up. He runs Spearboard.com, which he says is the largest spear fishing website. Grogan sounded like spear fishermen did before they felt betrayed: “We believe in collaboration and reconciliation. Not all the right people are giving you the input you should have… The goals are great. Everybody wants a good environment. “You’re supposed to go after people who are out on the water and have no idea what they’re doing… Some of the people who put this stuff together don’t have a clue what they’re doing.” One of those people, the FWC’s McCawley, apparently wasn’t insulted. “I do think that the spear fishing folks’ comments can be accommodated,” she told me. “After the public comment period closes on Feb. 20 we will work with the Park to review all the comments and how they can be addressed.” Tony Grogan asked for public education at the bayside marinas and ramps where boaters enter the park — something that’s already in the plan — but he rightly added that’s not enough: “On the docks, on the boat ramps, that’s how you find out how many fish people caught. At the marinas — it’s incredibly important to have someone there, checking.” He was talking about enforcement. We’ve all argued for years that under-enforcement of existing regulations bears a lot of the blame for Biscayne’s fishing decline. Almost everyone who speaks at public hearings emphasizes it. “We do have people that enforce the rules and regulations of the park day in and day out,” superintendent Carlstrom said in his wrap-up of the first public hearing. “You may not see them, but they’re there.” Several people hooted derisively, and not unfairly. It’s true that people get busted for fishing violations, but Biscayne has an enforcement staff of just five rangers. Scofflaws and the ignorant can fill their coolers with undersized fish and lobsters for a long time before they’re spotted and stopped. Unless the National Park Service lets Carlstrom multiply enforcement, or the FWC can flood the special recreation zone with its own officers, none of us should hold our breath until Biscayne’s fishery problem is solved. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. Up close Public comments on Biscayne National Park’s general management plan will be taken by the National Park Service through Feb. 20. Plan details are online at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/bisc. The park intends to implement Alternative 6, subject to changes that may be inspired by constructive criticism from the public.

Spear fishin g ang st............................................3 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 17 € Event Calendar 12 € Galley 10 € Tide Table 13 DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront Times Ask Marshall Bellin what scares him the most on the water and he’ll tell you: A boat speeding by full of people not wearing life jackets. “You see it all the time, of course,” said Bellin, a certified boating safety instructor with the Pompano Beach Sail and Power Squadron. “Everybody’s having a good time, but they’re not thinking about what would happen if one of them was thrown from the boat or just fell overboard.” While Florida law mandates that recreational vessels carry life jackets — otherwise known as personal flotation devices (PFDs) — on board, there’s no requirement that they be worn, except for children under six years old. Bellin would like to see that change. “There’s a reason they’re called ‘life jackets,’” he said. “They will, quite simply, save your life.” Bellin said the Pompano squadron, as well as other squadrons and Coast Guard auxiliaries in the state, are stepping up efforts to encourage full-time PFD wearing in a continuation of the state’s Wear It Florida campaign. To meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements, a boat must have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved Type I, II, III, or V life jacket for each person aboard. Boats 16 feet and over must have at least one Type IV throwable device as well. “The whole purpose of our organization is to teach safety on the water, and the usage of life jackets is at the top of that list,” he said. “We stress that the presence of a jacket on the boat is no substitute for wearing one. Florida is the national leader in annual boating fatalities, and the majority of those fatalities are boaters who fall overboard and drown. The interesting thing is that most of them reportedly could swim.” It happens in Florida to an average of one person each week, Bellin said. Paul Sacks, an officer of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 3-4, said many, if not most, of those deaths could easily have been prevented by wearing a PFD. “It can be the difference between a fun day on the water and becoming a statistic,” Sacks said. “This is why the Wear It Florida campaign was put together. The campaign’s goal is clear and simple — to increase the number of boaters who consistently wear a life jacket while on the water.” According to statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the number one cause of boating fatalities for 2012 was falling overboard. In fact, it’s been the leading cause of death on the water since 2003. Of the 1,994 fatalities reported, 1,363 — or 68 percent — were not wearing a life jacket. And that number may be in fact higher, since no information was available on 110 of the fatalities. CampaignstepsupeffortstoencouragelifejacketuseNorthLauderdaleresidentwinstrickedoutbassboat SEE LIFE JACKET | PAGE 6 ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times As a serious bass fisherman and club tournament competitor, Frank Ay of North Lauderdale, has weighed some hefty largemouth. His biggest was a 10-pound, two-ouncer, but that’s merely a minnow compared to the 19-foot, 8-inch 1,750-pounder he caught without rod, reel or bait. That’s not a bass; it’s a boat — a Phoenix 619 bass boat, plus a 200 horsepower Mercury outboard added to the stern and a MotorGuide trolling motor on the bow. Ay won the $40,000 rig by registering, nothing more, in Florida’s TrophyCatch, a bass fishing recognition and conservation program now in its second year. Ay was at Lake Okeechobee with his club, Big Reel Bassmasters of Margate, when the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission announced that he had won the drawing. With only 4,000-plus entrants in the contest’s first year, the odds were pretty good. FWC is investing a lot in TrophyCatch, avoiding the appearance of extravagance by going without the usual space between two words. Sponsors put up the prizes. The fishing part of the promotion recognizes special bass catches in three weight categories, starting at eight pounds. The grand prize winner for 2012 was Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J. who caught a 13-pound, 14ounce bass at Rodman Reservoir in February. You don’t have to catch a big bass, or any bass for that matter, to enter the drawing that Frank Ay won, but you’ll get 10 extra entries for every valid catch you submit. The promotion’s second season began Oct. 1 and ends next Sept. 30. To register and see all the rules, go to this website: www.worldfishingnetwork.com/florida/trophy-catch#.UrPHE_t0lBo.

Info collecting buoy The war against red tide, scourge of Florida’s Gulf coast, escalates with the installation of a biological intelligence buoy in Old Tampa Bay, between Clearwater and the Interbay Peninsula. The buoy continuously collects water quality information — temperature, salinity, clarity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, and rainfall and wind data. It transmits the info every five minutes, so researchers can monitor it any time or all the time. All that, freshly added to monitoring equipment already in other sections of Tampa Bay, is meant to help scientists figure out exactly how red tide is started. Scientists figured out long ago what causes red tide. It’s an alga called Pyrodinium bahamense, but it still isn’t fully understood. “This buoy fills an important gap in Tampa Bay monitoring efforts,” said Alina Corcoran, who heads harmful algal bloom research at the FWC. “It collects data autonomously, allowing us to gather data without having to go out into the field, and we can communicate to the buoy remotely. “By using high-resolution data, we will be able to directly link environmental factors like changes in salinity due to rainfall to changes in Pyrodinium bahamense abundance.” You can see real-time reports from that buoy and others online at the websites www.gcoos.org and www.secoora.org. The latter was easier to use when we checked in December. FWC has an excellent red tide information website at http://myfwc.com/RedTide.

They all but begged not to be overlooked when the park’s long term management plans are finished and enacted. They said “Please.” Park superintendents and their science and planning people always listened, made notes, nodded and said, “Thank you. This is exactly what we wanted to hear.” They always promised to tinker with their fishing rule proposals, promising to do their best to balance all users’ needs with resource protection as fairly as they could. Someone should have warned the spear fishermen not to hold their breath for that. In the few weeks between the release of Biscayne’s almost-final general management plan and December’s public hearings, the typically genial spear guys boiled up and over — not because they’d been overlooked, but because spear fishing would be forbidden in a restricted “special recreation zone” covering 14,585 acres of water over the reefs off Elliott Key. “You say that’s only 8 percent of the entire park, but it’s 56 percent of the best diving in the park,” Don Waters told Biscayne Superintendent Brian Carlstron and resource chief Elsa Alvear. He said that loudly and this louder: “My government employs you people to take away my backyard. I’m sick and tired of the government and bureaucrats trying to take away my backyard. I’m in favor of Alternative One, which is to keep your hands off of our American heritage.” The rest of the audience applauded — not only the spear guys who filled three rows of eight chairs on one side of the auditorium, but most of the 130 or so people who attended the first of three public hearings on the plan. Someone else in the spear rows wagged an index finger and called out, “You people aren’t doing your job,” to Carlstrom and Alvear. Jessica McCawley, director of the state’s division of marine fisheries management, wasn’t at fingerpoint, only because she was on the other side of the room. McCawley’s outfit has to write the detailed regulations and administer issuance of 500 special use permits for 430 private anglers and 70 licensed guides and charter captains. After she attended two more public hearings, I asked McCawley how the zone plan was generally received. “I would say that no one really likes the special zone,” she answered. The Alternative One that Waters and his spearing pals want would leave the old management system alone. That’s really not an option, although it’s a standard choice published for comparison in every national park management plan’s preparation. The existing plan, Biscayne’s first, was overtaken long ago by boating, fishing and population growth that are mainly to blame for the fishery declines that made it necessary to do something. Gil Muratori, who might fish in that park more often than anyone else who keeps score, spoke for most of us — probably including the spear fishermen — when he said this: “It is generally agreed upon that over the years there has been a decline in the number and quality of the fish. While I can understand the resistance of all of us to any government intrusion, we must also admit that the biggest problem is us. “If we do not police ourselves someone else must step in and that is what we now are seeing. It is a multilegged stool. There is plenty of blame to go around.” In 2011, Biscayne presented a set of alternative plans with Alternative Four favored by the National Park Service. The area now in hot controversy was shown then as a no-fishing zone, or marine reserve, of 10,522 acres between Long Reef and Pacific Reef. The public outcry against that was big. More significantly, the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) commission refused to accept it. This year FWC and the National Park Service compromised with fishing allowed but restricted in that zone. They extended it two miles south of Pacific Reef, a 28 percent increase in size. “We decided to allow fishing while maintaining the goals of the marine reserve,” Alvear said, referring to a hoped-for 20 percent improvement in the size and abundance of reef fish. “We feel we can comfortably provide the same level of protection.” That change took the former Alternative Four, denounced as so unfair, and converted it to a new park-preferred alternative plan, numbered six. “Many folks, surprisingly, said to go back to Alternative Four that closes out more people, because that is more fair,” said McCawley of the FWC after attending all three public hearings. The state-federal compromise that she helped to create was a good thing. Some of the details don’t look so good.

Freebie days You have to pay for landside admission to most national parks, although not at Biscayne. Everglades will be a freeby too on nine days this year. Here’s the schedule: Jan. 20: Martin Luther King Jr. Day; Feb. 15-17: Presidents Day weekend; April 19-20: National Park Week’s opening weekend; Aug. 25: National Park Service’s 98th birthday; Sept. 27: National Public Lands Day; Nov. 11: Veterans Day. Trips galore There’s been so much tumult and shouting over fishing restrictions and boat moorings in Biscayne National Park’s developing management plans that some of us might forget what a swell national park it is, even with its many problems. Even though the only commercial concessionaire shut up shop in September, rangers and expert volunteers are leading visitors on an expanded slate of free stuff: guided canoe and kayak trips, Family Fun Fest programs for children, porch talks, walks, fishing and grounding awareness classes, and junior ranger programs. Biscayne is 95 percent water so most people go by boat, but this winter the land access to the only visitor center is made easy by free weekend rides on the Homestead Trolley, which also runs to Everglades National Park from downtown Homestead. Some of the best features are the paddling trips along Biscayne’s mangrove shorelines, where you’re liable to see myriad marine life and migratory birds as well as the year-round gulls and pelicans. The trips are available to all levels of paddling skill, and there are lessons for beginners. The monthly Family Fun Fest programs highlight different aspects of the park’s diverse resources at five handson activity stations for kids and their families. It’s different each month. Daily ranger talks and walks, from 20 minutes to an hour, feature topics involving park resources and wildlife. Those completing activities in the park’s junior ranger booklet may earn a badge or attend special junior ranger programs just for kids and their families. For those visiting the park on their own, the work of contemporary artists, inspired by the beauty of the park, is featured in the visitor center auditorium with exhibits changing every three months. There’s also a Biscayne Birding Trail program, in cooperation with the Tropical Audubon Society. Even for nature lovers with only a casual interest in birds, the experience can be stunning.

The most common license sought is the OUPV or “six pack,” so named since the license limits the operator to carrying six or fewer passengers in uninspected vessels only. The Master and Master/Mate credentials, on the other hand, not only allow license holders to operate as a six pack licensee, but also certain inspected vessels (limited to the tonnage listed on their credentials), and to carry more than six passengers, providing it is otherwise allowed by the legal restrictions in place on that vessel. The license that the potential candidate applies for will most likely be based on past boating experience and the size vessels used during that time. The requirements beyond a qualifying past history on vessels for any of these credentials includes a physical exam, first aid and CPR training, a drug test and, of course, a written exam. While it is possible to pursue your captain credentials through personal study, there are more than a few schools that will not only guide you through the exams, but will assist with the initial paperwork and gathering of your credentials for review by the U.S. Coast Guard. They also will continue to help with these matters when it comes time for your renewal application (many consider this assistance alone worth the price of participation). While getting a captain’s license may not be necessary for your personal boating goals, just pursuing these credentials can quite possibly make you a better educated and safer boater in the future — which could prompt better luck than the practice of eating black-eyed peas and collared greens! Happy New Year! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. Carrying one or more passengers for hire; carrying one or more charter passengers when one owns or represents the owner of the vessel; carrying one or more charter passengers for consideration; carrying cargo for hire, and finally, operation of an inspected vessel. As you can see, under many circumstances the need for credentials while operating a vessel can be rather broad. This is particularly true when it comes to carrying passengers. If you take some friends out on your boat and they return the favor by buying you dinner, it’s unlikely this would be considered a “passenger for hire” situation. However, when we go a bit beyond this scenario, things can become tricky. A good example is the dive instructor who gets paid for teaching students, though the final dive when they go out to the reef is supposed to be free. Legally, this situation has generally been interpreted as a “hire” situation. To be sure, getting a captain’s license does require a certain amount of dedication. But if you’re already a dedicated boater, it may not seem like much of a hassle, and the rewards (even at an educational level) might make the project worth investigating. For the most part, anyone seeking a captain’s license to transport passengers will want credentials that permit the operation of a vessel under 200 gross tons. Excluding certain specialty type operations — such as commercial towing — the credentials available for most smaller craft include: operator of (small) uninspected passenger vessels, under 100 gross tons (otherwise known as the “six pack” or the OUPV); Master — not more than 100 gross ADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSORSYSTEMS for DIVERS Compressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.Specializing in the Diving Industry Fill Whips & Panels/Manifolds  Yokes  Gauges Filters  Hoses  Oils  Air Storage Tanks & Fittings Our Clients include: Dive Resorts & Scuba Shops Yacht Owners & Captains, Divers, Fire Dept.800 OldGriffinRd.,#3PHONE:(954)929-4462Dania, FL33004FAX: (954)929-4463E-MAIL: CompAirSupply@att.netBauerNew Used Supplies Sales Service New year, new opportunities as a boat captain Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryCreatively Custom Made… Just the Way You Want it in Ways You’ve Never Seen Before!

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Logically, the beginning of a new year is just another day on the calendar in what hopefully is a long and prosperous life. But in truth, we tend to see it as a time to reflect, review and plan out a better future for ourselves and those we care about. Some of us will participate in rituals created to garner good fortune — such as the southern tradition of eating collared greens and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, or the Spanish practice of consuming 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. Others will take a more pragmatic approach, and review their career goals and ways to alter or supplement them. This could include going back to school and acquiring professional credentials and licenses, such as the acquisition of a captains or masters license. Unlike the Masefield poem, a seasoned mariner understands there is more about going to sea than just asking for “... a tall ship and a star to steer her by.” It actually helps to have some knowledge, experience, and sometimes — for legal purposes — credentials. In fact, many come to realize that seeking a captain’s license can prove valuable in quite a few common circumstances. Generally, when operating a vessel in U.S. waters, a license is required for doing any of the following, according to U.S. Code.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times Both Miami-Dade and Broward counties made the top 10 list of the most fatal accidents, with Miami-Dade at number two (81 fatalities) and Broward at number six (30 fatalities). Nationally, the U.S. Coast Guard reported that in 2012, almost 71 percent of all fatal boating accident victims drowned, and of those, almost 85 percent were reported as not wearing a life jacket. So why don’t boaters automatically put on PFDs? “Probably the biggest excuse we hear is that they’re bulky and uncomfortable,” Sacks said. “In the old days, that was more true, but there are more options now.” The emergence of inflatable life jackets, which activate either manually or when submerged, has made wearing a PFD more comfortable, as they are less bulky and constrictive, Sacks said. An inflatable life jacket has twice the buoyancy of a traditional orange horseshoe life jacket and is less than half the size. Florida law requires that children under age 6 always wear a child-size PFD on boats less than 26 feet long when underway. “I’m not sure why the 26-foot limit was chosen,” Sacks said. “I think it should be all boats for young children.” The law also says anybody using a personal watercraft such as a jet ski must wear one at all times. Mark Ritchie of Dania Beach keeps plenty of PFDs aboard his 30-foot center console, but seldom wears one. “The first thing I do when I bring people on the boat is show them where they are,” Ritchie said. “I keep them easily accessible. But honestly, I don’t like wearing them. It’s often too hot, and half the time, I’m not even wearing a shirt.” He also said he does wear an inflatable life jacket when he’s alone on the boat, fishing offshore. Bellin said keeping PFDs “accessible” is often not enough. “There are so many scenarios where you just don't have time to go grab one,” Bellin said. “If you get knocked overboard by a sudden wave, or if there’s a collision, you're just going into the water, maybe even injured or unconscious. “As comfortable as the inflatable ones are today, there’s really no excuse for not having it on all the time. Honestly, I often forget I'm wearing mine and have gone into a restaurant with it still on.” Bellin, who bought a 20-foot Mako center console boat when he retired, said he’d been on boats before, but never owned one. “I decided right away that I should educate myself,” he said. “So, I signed up for some of the same courses I’m teaching now, eventually getting certified as an instructor. I’ve found that a lot of experienced boaters — the ones who think they know everything they need to know — are the ones most apt to get into bad situations.” John Reid of Fort Pierce has been around boats all his life, starting with an 8-foot dory when he was 9 years old. “When we were kids, of course, my dad always made us wear life jackets,” he said. “Back then, they were those big bulky things. And they were uncomfortable, and we felt like dorks wearing them. When I got to my teens and early 20s, I stopped wearing them, because it just wasn’t ‘cool’.” But about five years ago, Reid, now 31, started wearing an inflatable life jacket after a friend drowned on a fishing trip in the Keys. “It’s kind of like wearing a seat belt in a car,” he said. “I never used to do that, either. Then, they made us do it or get a ticket. I don’t know if it will ever go that far with life jackets, but I do think it’s a good idea for everybody to wear them, all the time you’re on the boat.” Sacks agreed that it was unlikely that the state would pass a law requiring boaters to wear them. “There are too many people opposed to it,” he said. “And really, it’s hard to legislate common sense.” Bellin said he will continue to preach the PFD gospel to his students anyway. “As soon as they show up, I introduce myself,” he said. “Then, I lay down the microphone, take off my backpack and put on my life preserver. And I tell them, ‘Don't leave the dock without it.’” Fountain Belzona Key Largo Tahoe Novurania Hobie Go Pro Yamaha Carbon Craft Bote VersaDock Hyperlite Tohatsu Chapman OBrien DaKine H2O Century Bic Laser Honda Cannon The Go-To People TM Nautical VenturesMarine Superstore50 South Bryan Rd.

Today’slifejacketstoutedaslessbulky,morebuoyant LIFE JACKET | FROM PAGE 1 Up close There are five different types of PFDs available. Here is a brief description of each of them. Type I PFDs, or offshore lifejackets, are the most buoyant PFDs and suitable for all water conditions, including rough or isolated water where rescue may be delayed. Although bulky in comparison to other PFDs, offshore jackets will turn most unconscious individuals to the face-up position. They range in sizes from adult to child. Type II PFDs, or near-shore buoyancy vests, are the most common in use and widely available. They are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly, and are not designed for long periods in rough water. They will turn some but not all unconscious wearers face-up in the water. This vest is less bulky than a Type I, and often the least expensive of the PFD types. Type III PFDs, or flotation aids, are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly. These PFDs are designed to keep the wearer in a vertical position, but it is the wearers’ responsibility to maneuver themselves into a face-up position. Type III PFDs will keep unconscious wearers face-up just as well as a Type II vest. These types of vests are the most comfortable to wear, and popular for recreational boating and fishing. Many inflatable life jackets are Type III PFDs. Type IV PFDs, to be thrown to a conscious person in the water, and are not designed to be worn. A few examples of a Type IV PFD are a buoyant cushion, a life ring, or a horseshoe buoy. Type VPFDs, to be worn for specific activities that will be described on the PFD’s label. To be effective, Type V PFDs must be worn according to these specifications, and many must be worn at all times in order to qualify as a PFD. A Type V label will also list its performance as Type I, II, or III.

8 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times of the arid south against the intense greens of the lush north. A number of hikes accommodate a wide range of ambitions. The Cliff Trail, near mile marker 14, is an easy two-mile round-trip trek to a sweeping overlook. Look for Halemanu Road, where the hike begins. End of the road There’s no preparing for the visual spectacle of Kauai’s north shore, with its mountains practically dripping green and beaches aglow with barely trodden golden sand. There’s only one road in, and once you get past the resort community of Princeville, the town of Hanalei anchors the coastline with its guileless, though well-heeled, beach culture. Pick up a salmon or chicken salad sandwich (under $10) at Hanalei Gourmet, where insulated backpacks (free loaners with sandwich purchases) are available for to-go picnics, then rent snorkel gear ($7) at the Wainiha General Store just outside town. Farther on, the highway’s end is the beginning of the Na Pali Coast, roughly 12 unsullied miles of verdant shoreline. That’s where you’ll find Kee Beach, an alcove whose water is surrounded by reef, attracting colorful marine life while keeping the waves at bay. It’s a perfect snorkeling spot. After toweling off, stroll down the beach and turn around: There’s the Na Pali Coast spread before you like some fantasy realm. Sunset perch Not even the grandeur of the rest of the north shore can prepare you for the view you’ll have over Hanalei Bay as you sip cocktails and watch the sunset from the terrace of the St. Regis Bar. The St. Regis Princeville Resort opened in 2009 on the reimagined grounds of the old Princeville Resort, and while some still bemoan the glassing in of the formerly open-air lobby, the appeal of the space remains. The champagne presentation just before dark feels a bit Hawaii-by-way-of-Disney, but it’s informative and a small price (about $15 to $16 per cocktail) to pay for the glorious setting and skillful bartending. SARAH STODOLA The New York Times Syndicate These days, Kauai sits firmly on the tourist radar, an indisputable rival of its famous neighbors, Oahu and Maui. But upon first glance at its unspoiled natural splendor, you’d never know it. A closer look at one of the oldest (geologically speaking) and arguably most beautiful of the major Hawaiian Islands reveals a blossoming culinary scene, a rooted arts community and a smattering of resorts. But thanks to careful regulation (by law, building heights max out at 55 feet) and a certain amount of pushback from residents (in 2007 protesters quickly quashed high-speed ferry service between Oahu and Kauai), most of the island still feels like the world’s most stunning backwater. Art and literature Kauai’s small but enthusiastic community of artists clusters in Hanapepe, with its dozen or so galleries housed in buildings along Hanapepe Road that, although reminiscent of America’s Wild West, were built by Asian immigrants around the turn of the 20th century. Every Friday, the galleries and other shops leave their doors open late for Hanapepe Art Night. You can browse through exhibitions at galleries like Island Art Gallery, at 3876 Hanapepe Road (islandartkauai.com) and Amy-Lauren’s Gallery, at 4545 Kona Road (amylaurensgallery.com),which feature local artists taking inspiration from the landscape and culture of Kauai. Craft and food vendors selling Hawaiian barbecue and tacos also set up shop along the street. Reserve time to browse the pleasantly musty stacks of new and used books at Talk Story Bookstore, the only dedicated bookstore on the island — and it is a charmer. Dinner with sugar Kauai’s sugar industry once dominated the landscape, and the footprints of its sprawling plantations continue to shape it today. Towns founded to serve plantation workers now serve shoppers, and plantation grounds now cater to myriad leisurely pursuits. This is especially true at the Kilohana Plantation. Here, in what was once a sprawling 16,000-square-foot home, bedrooms have been converted into shops selling items like jewelry and pottery made by local artisans; the inner courtyard is now the elegant Gaylord’s Restaurant. After a couple of years of tinkering, the menu has settled on a by-turns familiar and adventurous approach — the island caprese ($14) is a refreshing twist on the salad standard, while the sesame seared fresh catch ($29) reimagines classic Hawaiian seafood dishes. Live guitar players in flowery shirts sing beachy rock standards, providing just the right dose of Hawaiian kitsch. Coffee at the source Load up on hearty egg, vegetable and rice dishes (about $10) at Kalaheo Caf & Coffee Co. Wash it down with a local blend, then head to the source. The Kauai Coffee Company got its start in 1987, taking over land formerly used for sugarcane. Since then, it has survived encroachment from the tourist industry to maintain its oceanfront headquarters, 3,100 acres of coffee trees and status as the largest coffee plantation in Hawaii. The selfguided tour is short and interesting, and connoisseurs will get a kick out of the many varieties ready to sample inside the visitor’s center. Hikes with views Kauai is more than 5 million years old — plenty of time for nature to carve out some dramatic contours. Perhaps most dramatic is Waimea Canyon, a chasm over 3,000 feet deep and composed of a thousand shades of brown, green and red. Take Highway 550 to Kokee State Park, and then continue on, stopping at lookouts along the way — those past mile marker 9 are particularly majestic.

9January2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront TimesStanding on water A quick morning coffee from Hanalei Wake Up Cafe should have you ready to try some stand-up paddleboarding, a Hawaiian original that has over the past decade spread around the globe. With its short learning curve and high fun quotient, after a morning lesson you may be paddling out into Hanalei Bay with the big boys. Far enough, anyway, to watch those advanced surfers catching waves at the break farther out. If the ocean’s rough, you can stick to the Hanalei River. Hawaiian Surfing Adventures gives hour-long group lessons starting at $55. A movable feast Mom-and-pop joints dot the roadside along the drive to the Lihue Airport. Hit Moloaa Sunrise Juice Bar for smoothies or an acai bowl ($7.25). Some ingredients are sourced directly from the farms surrounding the wood hut. On the outskirts of Kapaa, Paco’s Tacos serves fish tacos ($4.85) from a food truck with picnic tables by the ocean. Coconut stands abound. Get one, and after you’ve finished drinking the juice, have the vendor cut out the coconut’s meat —it’s delicious. Environmental survey While helicopter tours are popular, and breathtaking, planes offer an alternative that use a fraction of the fuel a helicopter gobbles up — and they’re cheaper. AirVentures Hawaii offers 70-minute flights ($125) over the majority of the island not accessible by car, including the Na Pali Coast, numerous peaks and valleys and more waterfalls than you could count. Plantation past The town of Koloa sprang up to serve workers on the island’s first sugar plantation, founded in 1835. It’s been lovingly preserved and today houses shops ranging from practical to amusing — a perfect stop for last-minute souvenirs. The Ukulele Store is an outpost of Larry’s Music in Kapaa, with rows upon rows of this classic Hawaiian instrument for sale. If you’re still hungry, TomKat’s Grille is a local favorite with a lost-in-time garden. A friendly barracuda Bedtime comes early on Kauai, so start early to get in a full evening. Hanalei has become a culinary hot spot, and a recent addition to the scene is Bar Acuda, a smallplates restaurant tucked behind a health food store. Ask for a table on its cloistered wraparound porch to nibble on dishes like local honeycomb and seared sea scallop (each $12). Reservations are recommended. Tipple in Tahiti Follow dinner with drinks at Tahiti Nui, the best bar on the island, with its thatched walls and divey aloha ambience. There’s live music most evenings, and more often than not the genre is native to Hawaii — slack-key guitars and ukuleles rule the night. It all feels more like a family gathering than the big production for out-of-towners found elsewhere in Hawaii. Every Hawaiian-themed bar in the world wishes it could be this one.

Beyond their appearance in some of the most beloved dishes, potatoes also boast many benefits to your diet. Here are few reasons to add this versatile vegetable into meals: Potassium: Potatoes are a great source of potassium, which may help lower high blood pressure, making them a heart-healthy choice. In fact, potatoes contain more potassium than a banana or spinach. Vitamins: A spud a day may keep the cold germs away. One medium-sized spud has nearly half the recommended daily value of vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin B6. Dietary fiber: Potatoes are also a source of dietary fiber, a complex carbohydrate, which is known to increase satiety and help with weight loss. Gluten free: Potatoes are a naturally gluten-free food, so those with gluten sensitivity can enjoy this flavorful vegetable. Bring out the flavors of your comfort dishes by pairing them with a perfectly suited wine. A spicy red with raspberry and peppery flavors, Zinfandel pairs particularly well with dishes below.

14 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times WATERFRONTTIMES.COM ones win acceptance, not alienation. The fishing rules, still a work in progress, say you can fish and dive in the special zone, but not at anchor. Mooring buoys will be installed instead. So far so fair. Lobsters can’t be taken. Neither can grouper of any size, the idea being that little ones will be allowed to grow into the big, big ones that visitors to the park enjoy seeing while snorkeling and diving. Spear fishermen enjoy big grouper, too. So do hook and line fishing-doers, but there is this difference: Hook-and-liners can release what they catch. The grouper they let go catch their breath, hide a while and come out swimming like new. Stick one with a spear and it’s done for. There’s one exception for spear fishers in the special recreation zone’s rules. They’re allowed in there to spear all the lionfish they can, for lionfish are unwanted exotics that take over reefs and devour the forage of native species. That’s the only bone the spearers were thrown. Did someone shout “Thanks a lot!?” “It looks like the finger’s being put on us spear fishermen and we’re being pushed out,” said a man named Manny, already feeling deprived by marine sanctuaries off the Keys. “It’s just sanctuary after sanctuary, and what information do you have that we’re to blame? “We’re trying to help the environment. And you want me to protect your resource but you won’t let me use it.” When most of the steam was let off, Tony Grogan spoke up. He runs Spearboard.com, which he says is the largest spear fishing website. Grogan sounded like spear fishermen did before they felt betrayed: “We believe in collaboration and reconciliation. Not all the right people are giving you the input you should have… The goals are great. Everybody wants a good environment. “You’re supposed to go after people who are out on the water and have no idea what they’re doing… Some of the people who put this stuff together don’t have a clue what they’re doing.” One of those people, the FWC’s McCawley, apparently wasn’t insulted. “I do think that the spear fishing folks’ comments can be accommodated,” she told me. “After the public comment period closes on Feb. 20 we will work with the Park to review all the comments and how they can be addressed.” Tony Grogan asked for public education at the bayside marinas and ramps where boaters enter the park — something that’s already in the plan — but he rightly added that’s not enough: “On the docks, on the boat ramps, that’s how you find out how many fish people caught. At the marinas — it’s incredibly important to have someone there, checking.” He was talking about enforcement. We’ve all argued for years that under-enforcement of existing regulations bears a lot of the blame for Biscayne’s fishing decline. Almost everyone who speaks at public hearings emphasizes it. “We do have people that enforce the rules and regulations of the park day in and day out,” superintendent Carlstrom said in his wrap-up of the first public hearing. “You may not see them, but they’re there.” Several people hooted derisively, and not unfairly. It’s true that people get busted for fishing violations, but Biscayne has an enforcement staff of just five rangers. Scofflaws and the ignorant can fill their coolers with undersized fish and lobsters for a long time before they’re spotted and stopped. Unless the National Park Service lets Carlstrom multiply enforcement, or the FWC can flood the special recreation zone with its own officers, none of us should hold our breath until Biscayne’s fishery problem is solved. Feedback: witzfish@att.net. Up close Public comments on Biscayne National Park’s general management plan will be taken by the National Park Service through Feb. 20. Plan details are online at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/bisc. The park intends to implement Alternative 6, subject to changes that may be inspired by constructive criticism from the public. Online commentary details can be found at the same website. You can also send suggestions to this postal address: Biscayne National Park General Management Plan, P.O. Box 25287, Denver Colo. 80225-0287.

Serving South Florida’s Coastal NeighborhoodsJANUARY 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 7 HAPPY NEW YEAR! Spear fishin g ang st............................................3 Admiralty Law 5 € Classifieds 17 € Event Calendar 12 € Galley 10 € Tide Table 13 DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront Times Ask Marshall Bellin what scares him the most on the water and he’ll tell you: A boat speeding by full of people not wearing life jackets. “You see it all the time, of course,” said Bellin, a certified boating safety instructor with the Pompano Beach Sail and Power Squadron. “Everybody’s having a good time, but they’re not thinking about what would happen if one of them was thrown from the boat or just fell overboard.” While Florida law mandates that recreational vessels carry life jackets — otherwise known as personal flotation devices (PFDs) — on board, there’s no requirement that they be worn, except for children under six years old. Bellin would like to see that change. “There’s a reason they’re called ‘life jackets,’” he said. “They will, quite simply, save your life.” Bellin said the Pompano squadron, as well as other squadrons and Coast Guard auxiliaries in the state, are stepping up efforts to encourage full-time PFD wearing in a continuation of the state’s Wear It Florida campaign. To meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements, a boat must have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved Type I, II, III, or V life jacket for each person aboard. Boats 16 feet and over must have at least one Type IV throwable device as well. “The whole purpose of our organization is to teach safety on the water, and the usage of life jackets is at the top of that list,” he said. “We stress that the presence of a jacket on the boat is no substitute for wearing one. Florida is the national leader in annual boating fatalities, and the majority of those fatalities are boaters who fall overboard and drown. The interesting thing is that most of them reportedly could swim.” It happens in Florida to an average of one person each week, Bellin said. Paul Sacks, an officer of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 3-4, said many, if not most, of those deaths could easily have been prevented by wearing a PFD. “It can be the difference between a fun day on the water and becoming a statistic,” Sacks said. “This is why the Wear It Florida campaign was put together. The campaign’s goal is clear and simple — to increase the number of boaters who consistently wear a life jacket while on the water.” According to statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the number one cause of boating fatalities for 2012 was falling overboard. In fact, it’s been the leading cause of death on the water since 2003. Of the 1,994 fatalities reported, 1,363 — or 68 percent — were not wearing a life jacket. And that number may be in fact higher, since no information was available on 110 of the fatalities. CampaignstepsupeffortstoencouragelifejacketuseNorthLauderdaleresidentwinstrickedoutbassboat SEE LIFE JACKET | PAGE 6 ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront Times As a serious bass fisherman and club tournament competitor, Frank Ay of North Lauderdale, has weighed some hefty largemouth. His biggest was a 10-pound, two-ouncer, but that’s merely a minnow compared to the 19-foot, 8-inch 1,750-pounder he caught without rod, reel or bait. That’s not a bass; it’s a boat — a Phoenix 619 bass boat, plus a 200 horsepower Mercury outboard added to the stern and a MotorGuide trolling motor on the bow. Ay won the $40,000 rig by registering, nothing more, in Florida’s TrophyCatch, a bass fishing recognition and conservation program now in its second year. Ay was at Lake Okeechobee with his club, Big Reel Bassmasters of Margate, when the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission announced that he had won the drawing. With only 4,000-plus entrants in the contest’s first year, the odds were pretty good. FWC is investing a lot in TrophyCatch, avoiding the appearance of extravagance by going without the usual space between two words. Sponsors put up the prizes. The fishing part of the promotion recognizes special bass catches in three weight categories, starting at eight pounds. The grand prize winner for 2012 was Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J. who caught a 13-pound, 14ounce bass at Rodman Reservoir in February. You don’t have to catch a big bass, or any bass for that matter, to enter the drawing that Frank Ay won, but you’ll get 10 extra entries for every valid catch you submit. The promotion’s second season began Oct. 1 and ends next Sept. 30. To register and see all the rules, go to this website: www.worldfishingnetwork.com/florida/trophy-catch#.UrPHE_t0lBo. Frank Ay’s award presentation can be seen at www.youtube.com/watch?v=WoD1JsYRAG4. To see Bob Williams’ winning bass, go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyAzosH4bkk. Info collecting buoy The war against red tide, scourge of Florida’s Gulf coast, escalates with the installation of a biological intelligence buoy in Old Tampa Bay, between Clearwater and the Interbay Peninsula. The buoy continuously collects water quality information — temperature, salinity, clarity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, and rainfall and wind data. It transmits the info every five minutes, so researchers can monitor it any time or all the time. All that, freshly added to monitoring equipment already in other sections of Tampa Bay, is meant to help scientists figure out exactly how red tide is started. Scientists figured out long ago what causes red tide. It’s an alga called Pyrodinium bahamense, but it still isn’t fully understood. “This buoy fills an important gap in Tampa Bay monitoring efforts,” said Alina Corcoran, who heads harmful algal bloom research at the FWC. “It collects data autonomously, allowing us to gather data without having to go out into the field, and we can communicate to the buoy remotely. “By using high-resolution data, we will be able to directly link environmental factors like changes in salinity due to rainfall to changes in Pyrodinium bahamense abundance.” You can see real-time reports from that buoy and others online at the websites www.gcoos.org and www.secoora.org. The latter was easier to use when we checked in December. FWC has an excellent red tide information website at http://myfwc.com/RedTide.

9January2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront TimesStanding on water A quick morning coffee from Hanalei Wake Up Cafe should have you ready to try some stand-up paddleboarding, a Hawaiian original that has over the past decade spread around the globe. With its short learning curve and high fun quotient, after a morning lesson you may be paddling out into Hanalei Bay with the big boys. Far enough, anyway, to watch those advanced surfers catching waves at the break farther out. If the ocean’s rough, you can stick to the Hanalei River. Hawaiian Surfing Adventures gives hour-long group lessons starting at $55. A movable feast Mom-and-pop joints dot the roadside along the drive to the Lihue Airport. Hit Moloaa Sunrise Juice Bar for smoothies or an acai bowl ($7.25). Some ingredients are sourced directly from the farms surrounding the wood hut. On the outskirts of Kapaa, Paco’s Tacos serves fish tacos ($4.85) from a food truck with picnic tables by the ocean. Coconut stands abound. Get one, and after you’ve finished drinking the juice, have the vendor cut out the coconut’s meat —it’s delicious. Environmental survey While helicopter tours are popular, and breathtaking, planes offer an alternative that use a fraction of the fuel a helicopter gobbles up — and they’re cheaper. AirVentures Hawaii offers 70-minute flights ($125) over the majority of the island not accessible by car, including the Na Pali Coast, numerous peaks and valleys and more waterfalls than you could count. Plantation past The town of Koloa sprang up to serve workers on the island’s first sugar plantation, founded in 1835. It’s been lovingly preserved and today houses shops ranging from practical to amusing — a perfect stop for last-minute souvenirs. The Ukulele Store is an outpost of Larry’s Music in Kapaa, with rows upon rows of this classic Hawaiian instrument for sale. If you’re still hungry, TomKat’s Grille is a local favorite with a lost-in-time garden. A friendly barracuda Bedtime comes early on Kauai, so start early to get in a full evening. Hanalei has become a culinary hot spot, and a recent addition to the scene is Bar Acuda, a smallplates restaurant tucked behind a health food store. Ask for a table on its cloistered wraparound porch to nibble on dishes like local honeycomb and seared sea scallop (each $12). Reservations are recommended. Tipple in Tahiti Follow dinner with drinks at Tahiti Nui, the best bar on the island, with its thatched walls and divey aloha ambience. There’s live music most evenings, and more often than not the genre is native to Hawaii — slack-key guitars and ukuleles rule the night. It all feels more like a family gathering than the big production for out-of-towners found elsewhere in Hawaii. Every Hawaiian-themed bar in the world wishes it could be this one. Blossoming culinary scene, rooted arts community defines Kauai Beaches with views: Theres no preparing for the spectacle of Kauais north shore, with its mountains dripping green and beaches aglow with golden sand. Waterfalls provide a dramatic backdrop as beachcombers stroll along Hanalei Bay. Photo | Cory Lum for The New York TimesHAWAII FROM PAGE 8

8 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times of the arid south against the intense greens of the lush north. A number of hikes accommodate a wide range of ambitions. The Cliff Trail, near mile marker 14, is an easy two-mile round-trip trek to a sweeping overlook. Look for Halemanu Road, where the hike begins. End of the road There’s no preparing for the visual spectacle of Kauai’s north shore, with its mountains practically dripping green and beaches aglow with barely trodden golden sand. There’s only one road in, and once you get past the resort community of Princeville, the town of Hanalei anchors the coastline with its guileless, though well-heeled, beach culture. Pick up a salmon or chicken salad sandwich (under $10) at Hanalei Gourmet, where insulated backpacks (free loaners with sandwich purchases) are available for to-go picnics, then rent snorkel gear ($7) at the Wainiha General Store just outside town. Farther on, the highway’s end is the beginning of the Na Pali Coast, roughly 12 unsullied miles of verdant shoreline. That’s where you’ll find Kee Beach, an alcove whose water is surrounded by reef, attracting colorful marine life while keeping the waves at bay. It’s a perfect snorkeling spot. After toweling off, stroll down the beach and turn around: There’s the Na Pali Coast spread before you like some fantasy realm. Sunset perch Not even the grandeur of the rest of the north shore can prepare you for the view you’ll have over Hanalei Bay as you sip cocktails and watch the sunset from the terrace of the St. Regis Bar. The St. Regis Princeville Resort opened in 2009 on the reimagined grounds of the old Princeville Resort, and while some still bemoan the glassing in of the formerly open-air lobby, the appeal of the space remains. The champagne presentation just before dark feels a bit Hawaii-by-way-of-Disney, but it’s informative and a small price (about $15 to $16 per cocktail) to pay for the glorious setting and skillful bartending. SARAH STODOLA The New York Times Syndicate These days, Kauai sits firmly on the tourist radar, an indisputable rival of its famous neighbors, Oahu and Maui. But upon first glance at its unspoiled natural splendor, you’d never know it. A closer look at one of the oldest (geologically speaking) and arguably most beautiful of the major Hawaiian Islands reveals a blossoming culinary scene, a rooted arts community and a smattering of resorts. But thanks to careful regulation (by law, building heights max out at 55 feet) and a certain amount of pushback from residents (in 2007 protesters quickly quashed high-speed ferry service between Oahu and Kauai), most of the island still feels like the world’s most stunning backwater. Art and literature Kauai’s small but enthusiastic community of artists clusters in Hanapepe, with its dozen or so galleries housed in buildings along Hanapepe Road that, although reminiscent of America’s Wild West, were built by Asian immigrants around the turn of the 20th century. Every Friday, the galleries and other shops leave their doors open late for Hanapepe Art Night. You can browse through exhibitions at galleries like Island Art Gallery, at 3876 Hanapepe Road (islandartkauai.com) and Amy-Lauren’s Gallery, at 4545 Kona Road (amylaurensgallery.com),which feature local artists taking inspiration from the landscape and culture of Kauai. Craft and food vendors selling Hawaiian barbecue and tacos also set up shop along the street. Reserve time to browse the pleasantly musty stacks of new and used books at Talk Story Bookstore, the only dedicated bookstore on the island — and it is a charmer. Dinner with sugar Kauai’s sugar industry once dominated the landscape, and the footprints of its sprawling plantations continue to shape it today. Towns founded to serve plantation workers now serve shoppers, and plantation grounds now cater to myriad leisurely pursuits. This is especially true at the Kilohana Plantation. Here, in what was once a sprawling 16,000-square-foot home, bedrooms have been converted into shops selling items like jewelry and pottery made by local artisans; the inner courtyard is now the elegant Gaylord’s Restaurant. After a couple of years of tinkering, the menu has settled on a by-turns familiar and adventurous approach — the island caprese ($14) is a refreshing twist on the salad standard, while the sesame seared fresh catch ($29) reimagines classic Hawaiian seafood dishes. Live guitar players in flowery shirts sing beachy rock standards, providing just the right dose of Hawaiian kitsch. Coffee at the source Load up on hearty egg, vegetable and rice dishes (about $10) at Kalaheo Caf & Coffee Co. Wash it down with a local blend, then head to the source. The Kauai Coffee Company got its start in 1987, taking over land formerly used for sugarcane. Since then, it has survived encroachment from the tourist industry to maintain its oceanfront headquarters, 3,100 acres of coffee trees and status as the largest coffee plantation in Hawaii. The selfguided tour is short and interesting, and connoisseurs will get a kick out of the many varieties ready to sample inside the visitor’s center. Hikes with views Kauai is more than 5 million years old — plenty of time for nature to carve out some dramatic contours. Perhaps most dramatic is Waimea Canyon, a chasm over 3,000 feet deep and composed of a thousand shades of brown, green and red. Take Highway 550 to Kokee State Park, and then continue on, stopping at lookouts along the way — those past mile marker 9 are particularly majestic. At the very end, both Kauai topographies loom side by side, the dusty hues Kauai,Hawaii:‘the world’s most stunning backwater’ SEE HAWAII | PAGE 9 WAYPOINTS The Westin Diplomats marinas at the beach resort and golf location provide dockage for the day, overnight or longer. € Short term & long term dockage € 30/50/100 amp, water and 3-phase/480v electric for mega yachts € 50 slips, plus face docks in excess of 300 ft € Membership opportunities available with resort amenity access € Day access to resorts pool, beach, golf, spa and restaurants € Complimentary dockage when dining at RIVALS Waterfront Sports Grille and 25% o checkFor information, call Dock Master at (954) 658-2526 or email Charles.campbell@westin.com DOCKAGEDIPLOMAT LANDING 3220 South Ocean Drive, Hollywood DIPLOMAT YACHT CLUB MARINA 500 Diplomat Way, Hallandale Beach

10 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times 1 tablespoon canola oil 4 small (2 pounds) bone-in-chicken breasts, skin removed 1-1/4 pounds small Wisconsin red potatoes 3/4 cup frozen, thawed pearl onions 1 cup small baby carrots 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth 8 ounces small baby bella or white mushrooms Chopped fresh thyme (optional) Combine Herbs de Provence, garlic salt, and pepper on a dinner plate. Spoon flour onto a second dinner plate. Coat each chicken breast with herb mixture; then dredge in flour. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add chicken and cook over medium-high heat until chicken is golden brown on both sides (approximately 3 to 4 minutes per side). If necessary, cook chicken in two batches so as not to crowd the pan. Once browned, place chicken in large slow cooker and add all remaining ingredients, except fresh thyme. Cover slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 8 hours. Sprinkle with fresh thyme before serving, if desired.Source: Renwood Winery/Wisconsin Potatoes Family Features — From russets to reds, fingerlings to purples, the hearty potato comes in many beautiful varieties that add color and texture to beloved comfort dishes. Beyond their appearance in some of the most beloved dishes, potatoes also boast many benefits to your diet. Here are few reasons to add this versatile vegetable into meals: Potassium: Potatoes are a great source of potassium, which may help lower high blood pressure, making them a heart-healthy choice. In fact, potatoes contain more potassium than a banana or spinach. Vitamins: A spud a day may keep the cold germs away. One medium-sized spud has nearly half the recommended daily value of vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin B6. Dietary fiber: Potatoes are also a source of dietary fiber, a complex carbohydrate, which is known to increase satiety and help with weight loss. Gluten free: Potatoes are a naturally gluten-free food, so those with gluten sensitivity can enjoy this flavorful vegetable. Bring out the flavors of your comfort dishes by pairing them with a perfectly suited wine. A spicy red with raspberry and peppery flavors, Zinfandel pairs particularly well with dishes below. When searching for the perfect complement to your hearty, comfort fare, go for wines that deliver on quality at a fair price. For more on potatoes and healthy recipe ideas, visit www.eatwisconsinpotatoes.com.

You can also phone for details to 305-230-7275, extension 000. For more information on the Homestead Trolley call 305-224-4457 or visit www.cityofhomestead.com/ index.aspx?nid=357 For more information about the fisheries and grounding awareness classes call 305-230-1144, extension 036. For regular updates from the park, see its Facebook page at www.facebook.com/biscaynenps, or the Twitter connection at www.twitter.com/biscaynenps. Freebie days You have to pay for landside admission to most national parks, although not at Biscayne. Everglades will be a freeby too on nine days this year. Here’s the schedule: Jan. 20: Martin Luther King Jr. Day; Feb. 15-17: Presidents Day weekend; April 19-20: National Park Week’s opening weekend; Aug. 25: National Park Service’s 98th birthday; Sept. 27: National Public Lands Day; Nov. 11: Veterans Day. Trips galore There’s been so much tumult and shouting over fishing restrictions and boat moorings in Biscayne National Park’s developing management plans that some of us might forget what a swell national park it is, even with its many problems. Even though the only commercial concessionaire shut up shop in September, rangers and expert volunteers are leading visitors on an expanded slate of free stuff: guided canoe and kayak trips, Family Fun Fest programs for children, porch talks, walks, fishing and grounding awareness classes, and junior ranger programs. Biscayne is 95 percent water so most people go by boat, but this winter the land access to the only visitor center is made easy by free weekend rides on the Homestead Trolley, which also runs to Everglades National Park from downtown Homestead. Some of the best features are the paddling trips along Biscayne’s mangrove shorelines, where you’re liable to see myriad marine life and migratory birds as well as the year-round gulls and pelicans. The trips are available to all levels of paddling skill, and there are lessons for beginners. The monthly Family Fun Fest programs highlight different aspects of the park’s diverse resources at five handson activity stations for kids and their families. It’s different each month. Daily ranger talks and walks, from 20 minutes to an hour, feature topics involving park resources and wildlife. Those completing activities in the park’s junior ranger booklet may earn a badge or attend special junior ranger programs just for kids and their families. For those visiting the park on their own, the work of contemporary artists, inspired by the beauty of the park, is featured in the visitor center auditorium with exhibits changing every three months. There’s also a Biscayne Birding Trail program, in cooperation with the Tropical Audubon Society. Even for nature lovers with only a casual interest in birds, the experience can be stunning.

They all but begged not to be overlooked when the park’s long term management plans are finished and enacted. They said “Please.” Park superintendents and their science and planning people always listened, made notes, nodded and said, “Thank you. This is exactly what we wanted to hear.” They always promised to tinker with their fishing rule proposals, promising to do their best to balance all users’ needs with resource protection as fairly as they could. Someone should have warned the spear fishermen not to hold their breath for that. In the few weeks between the release of Biscayne’s almost-final general management plan and December’s public hearings, the typically genial spear guys boiled up and over — not because they’d been overlooked, but because spear fishing would be forbidden in a restricted “special recreation zone” covering 14,585 acres of water over the reefs off Elliott Key. “You say that’s only 8 percent of the entire park, but it’s 56 percent of the best diving in the park,” Don Waters told Biscayne Superintendent Brian Carlstron and resource chief Elsa Alvear. He said that loudly and this louder: “My government employs you people to take away my backyard. I’m sick and tired of the government and bureaucrats trying to take away my backyard. I’m in favor of Alternative One, which is to keep your hands off of our American heritage.” The rest of the audience applauded — not only the spear guys who filled three rows of eight chairs on one side of the auditorium, but most of the 130 or so people who attended the first of three public hearings on the plan. Someone else in the spear rows wagged an index finger and called out, “You people aren’t doing your job,” to Carlstrom and Alvear. Jessica McCawley, director of the state’s division of marine fisheries management, wasn’t at fingerpoint, only because she was on the other side of the room. McCawley’s outfit has to write the detailed regulations and administer issuance of 500 special use permits for 430 private anglers and 70 licensed guides and charter captains. After she attended two more public hearings, I asked McCawley how the zone plan was generally received. “I would say that no one really likes the special zone,” she answered. The Alternative One that Waters and his spearing pals want would leave the old management system alone. That’s really not an option, although it’s a standard choice published for comparison in every national park management plan’s preparation. The existing plan, Biscayne’s first, was overtaken long ago by boating, fishing and population growth that are mainly to blame for the fishery declines that made it necessary to do something. Gil Muratori, who might fish in that park more often than anyone else who keeps score, spoke for most of us — probably including the spear fishermen — when he said this: “It is generally agreed upon that over the years there has been a decline in the number and quality of the fish. While I can understand the resistance of all of us to any government intrusion, we must also admit that the biggest problem is us. “If we do not police ourselves someone else must step in and that is what we now are seeing. It is a multilegged stool. There is plenty of blame to go around.” In 2011, Biscayne presented a set of alternative plans with Alternative Four favored by the National Park Service. The area now in hot controversy was shown then as a no-fishing zone, or marine reserve, of 10,522 acres between Long Reef and Pacific Reef. The public outcry against that was big. More significantly, the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) commission refused to accept it. This year FWC and the National Park Service compromised with fishing allowed but restricted in that zone. They extended it two miles south of Pacific Reef, a 28 percent increase in size. “We decided to allow fishing while maintaining the goals of the marine reserve,” Alvear said, referring to a hoped-for 20 percent improvement in the size and abundance of reef fish. “We feel we can comfortably provide the same level of protection.” That change took the former Alternative Four, denounced as so unfair, and converted it to a new park-preferred alternative plan, numbered six. “Many folks, surprisingly, said to go back to Alternative Four that closes out more people, because that is more fair,” said McCawley of the FWC after attending all three public hearings. The state-federal compromise that she helped to create was a good thing. Some of the details don’t look so good.

Serving South Floridas Coastal NeighborhoodsJANUARY 2014 YEAR 4 IS SUE 7 HAPPY NEW YEAR! Spear fishin g ang st............................................3 Admiralty Law 5 Classifieds 17 Event Calendar 12 Galley 10 Tide Table 13 DOUGLAS JORDAN Waterfront TimesAsk Marshall Bellin what scares him the most on the water and hell tell you: A boat speeding by full of people not wearing life jackets. You see it all the time, of course, said Bellin, a certified boating safety instructor with the Pompano Beach Sail and Power Squadron. Everybodys having a good time, but theyre not thinking about what would happen if one of them was thrown from the boat or just fell overboard. While Florida law mandates that recreational vessels carry life jackets otherwise known as personal flotation devices (PFDs) on board, theres no requirement that they be worn, except for children under six years old. Bellin would like to see that change. Theres a reason theyre called life jackets, he said. They will, quite simply, save your life. Bellin said the Pompano squadron, as well as other squadrons and Coast Guard auxiliaries in the state, are stepping up efforts to encourage full-time PFD wearing in a continuation of the states Wear It Florida campaign. To meet U.S. Coast Guard requirements, a boat must have a U.S. Coast Guard-approved Type I, II, III, or V life jacket for each person aboard. Boats 16 feet and over must have at least one Type IV throwable device as well. The whole purpose of our organization is to teach safety on the water, and the usage of life jackets is at the top of that list, he said. We stress that the presence of a jacket on the boat is no substitute for wearing one. Florida is the national leader in annual boating fatalities, and the majority of those fatalities are boaters who fall overboard and drown. The interesting thing is that most of them reportedly could swim. It happens in Florida to an average of one person each week, Bellin said. Paul Sacks, an officer of U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 3-4, said many, if not most, of those deaths could easily have been prevented by wearing a PFD. It can be the difference between a fun day on the water and becoming a statistic, Sacks said. This is why the Wear It Florida campaign was put together. The campaigns goal is clear and simple to increase the number of boaters who consistently wear a life jacket while on the water. According to statistics from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), the number one cause of boating fatalities for 2012 was falling overboard. In fact, its been the leading cause of death on the water since 2003. Of the 1,994 fatalities reported, 1,363 or 68 percent were not wearing a life jacket. And that number may be in fact higher, since no information was available on 110 of the fatalities. CampaignstepsupeffortstoencouragelifejacketuseNorthLauderdaleresidentwinstrickedoutbassboat SEE LIFE JACKET | PAGE 6 ARNOLD MARKOWITZ Waterfront TimesAs a serious bass fisherman and club tournament competitor, Frank Ay of North Lauderdale, has weighed some hefty largemouth. His biggest was a 10-pound, two-ouncer, but thats merely a minnow compared to the 19-foot, 8-inch 1,750-pounder he caught without rod, reel or bait. Thats not a bass; its a boat a Phoenix 619 bass boat, plus a 200 horsepower Mercury outboard added to the stern and a MotorGuide trolling motor on the bow. Ay won the $40,000 rig by registering, nothing more, in Floridas TrophyCatch, a bass fishing recognition and conservation program now in its second year. Ay was at Lake Okeechobee with his club, Big Reel Bassmasters of Margate, when the Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) Commission announced that he had won the drawing. With only 4,000-plus entrants in the contests first year, the odds were pretty good. FWC is investing a lot in TrophyCatch, avoiding the appearance of extravagance by going without the usual space between two words. Sponsors put up the prizes. The fishing part of the promotion recognizes special bass catches in three weight categories, starting at eight pounds. The grand prize winner for 2012 was Bob Williams of Alloway, N.J. who caught a 13-pound, 14ounce bass at Rodman Reservoir in February. You dont have to catch a big bass, or any bass for that matter, to enter the drawing that Frank Ay won, but youll get 10 extra entries for every valid catch you submit. The promotions second season began Oct. 1 and ends next Sept. 30. To register and see all the rules, go to this website: www.worldfishingnetwork.com/florida/trophy-catch#.UrPHE_t0lBo.

To see Bob Williams winning bass, go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyAzosH4bkk.Info collecting buoyThe war against red tide, scourge of Floridas Gulf coast, escalates with the installation of a biological intelligence buoy in Old Tampa Bay, between Clearwater and the Interbay Peninsula. The buoy continuously collects water quality information temperature, salinity, clarity, dissolved oxygen, chlorophyll fluorescence, and rainfall and wind data. It transmits the info every five minutes, so researchers can monitor it any time or all the time. All that, freshly added to monitoring equipment already in other sections of Tampa Bay, is meant to help scientists figure out exactly how red tide is started. Scientists figured out long ago what causes red tide. Its an alga called Pyrodinium bahamense, but it still isnt fully understood. This buoy fills an important gap in Tampa Bay monitoring efforts, said Alina Corcoran, who heads harmful algal bloom research at the FWC. It collects data autonomously, allowing us to gather data without having to go out into the field, and we can communicate to the buoy remotely. By using high-resolution data, we will be able to directly link environmental factors like changes in salinity due to rainfall to changes in Pyrodinium bahamense abundance. You can see real-time reports from that buoy and others online at the websites www.gcoos.org and www.secoora.org. The latter was easier to use when we checked in December. FWC has an excellent red tide information website at http://myfwc.com/RedTide. SEE BISCAYNE | PAGE 4 The FWC placed this buoy in Tampa Bay tomonitor algae blooms that cause red tide.

The area now in hot controversy was shown then as a no-fishing zone, or marine reserve, of 10,522 acres between Long Reef and Pacific Reef. The public outcry against that was big. More significantly, the state Fish and Wildlife Conservation (FWC) commission refused to accept it. This year FWC and the National Park Service compromised with fishing allowed but restricted in that zone. They extended it two miles south of Pacific Reef, a 28 percent increase in size. We decided to allow fishing while maintaining the goals of the marine reserve, Alvear said, referring to a hoped-for 20 percent improvement in the size and abundance of reef fish. We feel we can comfortably provide the same level of protection. That change took the former Alternative Four, denounced as so unfair, and converted it to a new park-preferred alternative plan, numbered six. Many folks, surprisingly, said to go back to Alternative Four that closes out more people, because that is more fair, said McCawley of the FWC after attending all three public hearings. The state-federal compromise that she helped to create was a good thing. Some of the details dont look so good.

Even though the only commercial concessionaire shut up shop in September, rangers and expert volunteers are leading visitors on an expanded slate of free stuff: guided canoe and kayak trips, Family Fun Fest programs for children, porch talks, walks, fishing and grounding awareness classes, and junior ranger programs. Biscayne is 95 percent water so most people go by boat, but this winter the land access to the only visitor center is made easy by free weekend rides on the Homestead Trolley, which also runs to Everglades National Park from downtown Homestead. Some of the best features are the paddling trips along Biscaynes mangrove shorelines, where youre liable to see myriad marine life and migratory birds as well as the year-round gulls and pelicans. The trips are available to all levels of paddling skill, and there are lessons for beginners. The monthly Family Fun Fest programs highlight different aspects of the parks diverse resources at five handson activity stations for kids and their families. Its different each month. Daily ranger talks and walks, from 20 minutes to an hour, feature topics involving park resources and wildlife. Those completing activities in the parks junior ranger booklet may earn a badge or attend special junior ranger programs just for kids and their families. For those visiting the park on their own, the work of contemporary artists, inspired by the beauty of the park, is featured in the visitor center auditorium with exhibits changing every three months. Theres also a Biscayne Birding Trail program, in cooperation with the Tropical Audubon Society. Even for nature lovers with only a casual interest in birds, the experience can be stunning.

The most common license sought is the OUPV or six pack, so named since the license limits the operator to carrying six or fewer passengers in uninspected vessels only. The Master and Master/Mate credentials, on the other hand, not only allow license holders to operate as a six pack licensee, but also certain inspected vessels (limited to the tonnage listed on their credentials), and to carry more than six passengers, providing it is otherwise allowed by the legal restrictions in place on that vessel. The license that the potential candidate applies for will most likely be based on past boating experience and the size vessels used during that time. The requirements beyond a qualifying past history on vessels for any of these credentials includes a physical exam, first aid and CPR training, a drug test and, of course, a written exam. While it is possible to pursue your captain credentials through personal study, there are more than a few schools that will not only guide you through the exams, but will assist with the initial paperwork and gathering of your credentials for review by the U.S. Coast Guard. They also will continue to help with these matters when it comes time for your renewal application (many consider this assistance alone worth the price of participation). While getting a captains license may not be necessary for your personal boating goals, just pursuing these credentials can quite possibly make you a better educated and safer boater in the future which could prompt better luck than the practice of eating black-eyed peas and collared greens! Happy New Year! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. Carrying one or more passengers for hire; carrying one or more charter passengers when one owns or represents the owner of the vessel; carrying one or more charter passengers for consideration; carrying cargo for hire, and finally, operation of an inspected vessel. As you can see, under many circumstances the need for credentials while operating a vessel can be rather broad. This is particularly true when it comes to carrying passengers. If you take some friends out on your boat and they return the favor by buying you dinner, its unlikely this would be considered a passenger for hire situation. However, when we go a bit beyond this scenario, things can become tricky. A good example is the dive instructor who gets paid for teaching students, though the final dive when they go out to the reef is supposed to be free. Legally, this situation has generally been interpreted as a hire situation. To be sure, getting a captains license does require a certain amount of dedication. But if youre already a dedicated boater, it may not seem like much of a hassle, and the rewards (even at an educational level) might make the project worth investigating. For the most part, anyone seeking a captains license to transport passengers will want credentials that permit the operation of a vessel under 200 gross tons. Excluding certain specialty type operations such as commercial towing the credentials available for most smaller craft include: operator of (small) uninspected passenger vessels, under 100 gross tons (otherwise known as the six pack or the OUPV); Master not more than 100 gross ADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSORSYSTEMS for DIVERSCompressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.Specializing in the Diving IndustryFill Whips & Panels/Manifolds Yokes Gauges Filters Hoses Oils Air Storage Tanks & Fittings Our Clients include: Dive Resorts & Scuba Shops Yacht Owners & Captains, Divers, Fire Dept.800 OldGriffinRd.,#3PHONE:(954)929-4462Dania, FL33004FAX: (954)929-4463E-MAIL: CompAirSupply@att.netBauerNew Used Supplies Sales Service New year, new opportunities as a boat captain Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryCreatively Custom Made Just the Way You Want it in Ways Youve Never Seen Before!THE MARINE TAILOR DOES IT ALL:Bimini Tops Aft Tops Stern Covers Full Storage Covers Enclosures Fly-Bridge Cushions Window Covers Navy Tops Dodgers Coamings and MoreRFAST CANVASCall Hector or Ricky for a Dockside Estimate954-596-2279or305-807-01441624 S.E. 3rd Court Deerfield Beach, FL 33441Located in the Cove Marina www.rfas tcanvas.net Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryRFAST CANVASLicense #07-00024146 We Moved!

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times ColumnistLogically, the beginning of a new year is just another day on the calendar in what hopefully is a long and prosperous life. But in truth, we tend to see it as a time to reflect, review and plan out a better future for ourselves and those we care about. Some of us will participate in rituals created to garner good fortune such as the southern tradition of eating collared greens and black-eyed peas on New Years Day, or the Spanish practice of consuming 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. Others will take a more pragmatic approach, and review their career goals and ways to alter or supplement them. This could include going back to school and acquiring professional credentials and licenses, such as the acquisition of a captains or masters license. Unlike the Masefield poem, a seasoned mariner understands there is more about going to sea than just asking for ... a tall ship and a star to steer her by. It actually helps to have some knowledge, experience, and sometimes for legal purposes credentials. In fact, many come to realize that seeking a captains license can prove valuable in quite a few common circumstances. Generally, when operating a vessel in U.S. waters, a license is required for doing any of the following, according to U.S. Code.

6 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times Both Miami-Dade and Broward counties made the top 10 list of the most fatal accidents, with Miami-Dade at number two (81 fatalities) and Broward at number six (30 fatalities). Nationally, the U.S. Coast Guard reported that in 2012, almost 71 percent of all fatal boating accident victims drowned, and of those, almost 85 percent were reported as not wearing a life jacket. So why dont boaters automatically put on PFDs? Probably the biggest excuse we hear is that theyre bulky and uncomfortable, Sacks said. In the old days, that was more true, but there are more options now. The emergence of inflatable life jackets, which activate either manually or when submerged, has made wearing a PFD more comfortable, as they are less bulky and constrictive, Sacks said. An inflatable life jacket has twice the buoyancy of a traditional orange horseshoe life jacket and is less than half the size. Florida law requires that children under age 6 always wear a child-size PFD on boats less than 26 feet long when underway. Im not sure why the 26-foot limit was chosen, Sacks said. I think it should be all boats for young children. The law also says anybody using a personal watercraft such as a jet ski must wear one at all times. Mark Ritchie of Dania Beach keeps plenty of PFDs aboard his 30-foot center console, but seldom wears one. The first thing I do when I bring people on the boat is show them where they are, Ritchie said. I keep them easily accessible. But honestly, I dont like wearing them. Its often too hot, and half the time, Im not even wearing a shirt. He also said he does wear an inflatable life jacket when hes alone on the boat, fishing offshore. Bellin said keeping PFDs accessible is often not enough. There are so many scenarios where you just don't have time to go grab one, Bellin said. If you get knocked overboard by a sudden wave, or if theres a collision, you're just going into the water, maybe even injured or unconscious. As comfortable as the inflatable ones are today, theres really no excuse for not having it on all the time. Honestly, I often forget I'm wearing mine and have gone into a restaurant with it still on. Bellin, who bought a 20-foot Mako center console boat when he retired, said hed been on boats before, but never owned one. I decided right away that I should educate myself, he said. So, I signed up for some of the same courses Im teaching now, eventually getting certified as an instructor. Ive found that a lot of experienced boaters the ones who think they know everything they need to know are the ones most apt to get into bad situations. John Reid of Fort Pierce has been around boats all his life, starting with an 8-foot dory when he was 9 years old. When we were kids, of course, my dad always made us wear life jackets, he said. Back then, they were those big bulky things. And they were uncomfortable, and we felt like dorks wearing them. When I got to my teens and early 20s, I stopped wearing them, because it just wasnt cool. But about five years ago, Reid, now 31, started wearing an inflatable life jacket after a friend drowned on a fishing trip in the Keys. Its kind of like wearing a seat belt in a car, he said. I never used to do that, either. Then, they made us do it or get a ticket. I dont know if it will ever go that far with life jackets, but I do think its a good idea for everybody to wear them, all the time youre on the boat. Sacks agreed that it was unlikely that the state would pass a law requiring boaters to wear them. There are too many people opposed to it, he said. And really, its hard to legislate common sense. Bellin said he will continue to preach the PFD gospel to his students anyway. As soon as they show up, I introduce myself, he said. Then, I lay down the microphone, take off my backpack and put on my life preserver. And I tell them, Don't leave the dock without it.

Todayslifejacketstoutedaslessbulky,morebuoyant LIFE JACKET | FROM PAGE 1 Up close There are five different types of PFDs available. Here is a brief description of each of them. Type I PFDs, or offshore lifejackets, are the most buoyant PFDs and suitable for all water conditions, including rough or isolated water where rescue may be delayed. Although bulky in comparison to other PFDs, offshore jackets will turn most unconscious individuals to the face-up position. They range in sizes from adult to child. Type II PFDs, or near-shore buoyancy vests, are the most common in use and widely available. They are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly, and are not designed for long periods in rough water. They will turn some but not all unconscious wearers face-up in the water. This vest is less bulky than a Type I, and often the least expensive of the PFD types. Type III PFDs, or flotation aids, are for calm and open water where a rescue will most likely occur quickly. These PFDs are designed to keep the wearer in a vertical position, but it is the wearers responsibility to maneuver themselves into a face-up position. Type III PFDs will keep unconscious wearers face-up just as well as a Type II vest. These types of vests are the most comfortable to wear, and popular for recreational boating and fishing. Many inflatable life jackets are Type III PFDs. Type IV PFDs, to be thrown to a conscious person in the water, and are not designed to be worn. A few examples of a Type IV PFD are a buoyant cushion, a life ring, or a horseshoe buoy. Type VPFDs, to be worn for specific activities that will be described on the PFDs label. To be effective, Type V PFDs must be worn according to these specifications, and many must be worn at all times in order to qualify as a PFD. A Type V label will also list its performance as Type I, II, or III.

The Cliff Trail, near mile marker 14, is an easy two-mile round-trip trek to a sweeping overlook. Look for Halemanu Road, where the hike begins.End of the roadTheres no preparing for the visual spectacle of Kauais north shore, with its mountains practically dripping green and beaches aglow with barely trodden golden sand. Theres only one road in, and once you get past the resort community of Princeville, the town of Hanalei anchors the coastline with its guileless, though well-heeled, beach culture. Pick up a salmon or chicken salad sandwich (under $10) at Hanalei Gourmet, where insulated backpacks (free loaners with sandwich purchases) are available for to-go picnics, then rent snorkel gear ($7) at the Wainiha General Store just outside town. Farther on, the highways end is the beginning of the Na Pali Coast, roughly 12 unsullied miles of verdant shoreline. Thats where youll find Kee Beach, an alcove whose water is surrounded by reef, attracting colorful marine life while keeping the waves at bay. Its a perfect snorkeling spot. After toweling off, stroll down the beach and turn around: Theres the Na Pali Coast spread before you like some fantasy realm.Sunset perchNot even the grandeur of the rest of the north shore can prepare you for the view youll have over Hanalei Bay as you sip cocktails and watch the sunset from the terrace of the St. Regis Bar. The St. Regis Princeville Resort opened in 2009 on the reimagined grounds of the old Princeville Resort, and while some still bemoan the glassing in of the formerly open-air lobby, the appeal of the space remains. The champagne presentation just before dark feels a bit Hawaii-by-way-of-Disney, but its informative and a small price (about $15 to $16 per cocktail) to pay for the glorious setting and skillful bartending.SARAH STODOLA The New York Times SyndicateThese days, Kauai sits firmly on the tourist radar, an indisputable rival of its famous neighbors, Oahu and Maui. But upon first glance at its unspoiled natural splendor, youd never know it. A closer look at one of the oldest (geologically speaking) and arguably most beautiful of the major Hawaiian Islands reveals a blossoming culinary scene, a rooted arts community and a smattering of resorts. But thanks to careful regulation (by law, building heights max out at 55 feet) and a certain amount of pushback from residents (in 2007 protesters quickly quashed high-speed ferry service between Oahu and Kauai), most of the island still feels like the worlds most stunning backwater.Art and literatureKauais small but enthusiastic community of artists clusters in Hanapepe, with its dozen or so galleries housed in buildings along Hanapepe Road that, although reminiscent of Americas Wild West, were built by Asian immigrants around the turn of the 20th century. Every Friday, the galleries and other shops leave their doors open late for Hanapepe Art Night. You can browse through exhibitions at galleries like Island Art Gallery, at 3876 Hanapepe Road (islandartkauai.com) and Amy-Laurens Gallery, at 4545 Kona Road (amylaurensgallery.com),which feature local artists taking inspiration from the landscape and culture of Kauai. Craft and food vendors selling Hawaiian barbecue and tacos also set up shop along the street. Reserve time to browse the pleasantly musty stacks of new and used books at Talk Story Bookstore, the only dedicated bookstore on the island and it is a charmer.Dinner with sugarKauais sugar industry once dominated the landscape, and the footprints of its sprawling plantations continue to shape it today. Towns founded to serve plantation workers now serve shoppers, and plantation grounds now cater to myriad leisurely pursuits. This is especially true at the Kilohana Plantation. Here, in what was once a sprawling 16,000-square-foot home, bedrooms have been converted into shops selling items like jewelry and pottery made by local artisans; the inner courtyard is now the elegant Gaylords Restaurant. After a couple of years of tinkering, the menu has settled on a by-turns familiar and adventurous approach the island caprese ($14) is a refreshing twist on the salad standard, while the sesame seared fresh catch ($29) reimagines classic Hawaiian seafood dishes. Live guitar players in flowery shirts sing beachy rock standards, providing just the right dose of Hawaiian kitsch.Coffee at the sourceLoad up on hearty egg, vegetable and rice dishes (about $10) at Kalaheo Caf & Coffee Co. Wash it down with a local blend, then head to the source. The Kauai Coffee Company got its start in 1987, taking over land formerly used for sugarcane. Since then, it has survived encroachment from the tourist industry to maintain its oceanfront headquarters, 3,100 acres of coffee trees and status as the largest coffee plantation in Hawaii. The selfguided tour is short and interesting, and connoisseurs will get a kick out of the many varieties ready to sample inside the visitors center.Hikes with viewsKauai is more than 5 million years old plenty of time for nature to carve out some dramatic contours. Perhaps most dramatic is Waimea Canyon, a chasm over 3,000 feet deep and composed of a thousand shades of brown, green and red. Take Highway 550 to Kokee State Park, and then continue on, stopping at lookouts along the way those past mile marker 9 are particularly majestic.

9January2014 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMWaterfront TimesStanding on waterA quick morning coffee from Hanalei Wake Up Cafe should have you ready to try some stand-up paddleboarding, a Hawaiian original that has over the past decade spread around the globe. With its short learning curve and high fun quotient, after a morning lesson you may be paddling out into Hanalei Bay with the big boys. Far enough, anyway, to watch those advanced surfers catching waves at the break farther out. If the oceans rough, you can stick to the Hanalei River. Hawaiian Surfing Adventures gives hour-long group lessons starting at $55.A movable feastMom-and-pop joints dot the roadside along the drive to the Lihue Airport. Hit Moloaa Sunrise Juice Bar for smoothies or an acai bowl ($7.25). Some ingredients are sourced directly from the farms surrounding the wood hut. On the outskirts of Kapaa, Pacos Tacos serves fish tacos ($4.85) from a food truck with picnic tables by the ocean. Coconut stands abound. Get one, and after youve finished drinking the juice, have the vendor cut out the coconuts meat its delicious.Environmental surveyWhile helicopter tours are popular, and breathtaking, planes offer an alternative that use a fraction of the fuel a helicopter gobbles up and theyre cheaper. AirVentures Hawaii offers 70-minute flights ($125) over the majority of the island not accessible by car, including the Na Pali Coast, numerous peaks and valleys and more waterfalls than you could count.Plantation pastThe town of Koloa sprang up to serve workers on the islands first sugar plantation, founded in 1835. Its been lovingly preserved and today houses shops ranging from practical to amusing a perfect stop for last-minute souvenirs. The Ukulele Store is an outpost of Larrys Music in Kapaa, with rows upon rows of this classic Hawaiian instrument for sale. If youre still hungry, TomKats Grille is a local favorite with a lost-in-time garden.A friendly barracudaBedtime comes early on Kauai, so start early to get in a full evening. Hanalei has become a culinary hot spot, and a recent addition to the scene is Bar Acuda, a smallplates restaurant tucked behind a health food store. Ask for a table on its cloistered wraparound porch to nibble on dishes like local honeycomb and seared sea scallop (each $12). Reservations are recommended.Tipple in TahitiFollow dinner with drinks at Tahiti Nui, the best bar on the island, with its thatched walls and divey aloha ambience. Theres live music most evenings, and more often than not the genre is native to Hawaii slack-key guitars and ukuleles rule the night. It all feels more like a family gathering than the big production for out-of-towners found elsewhere in Hawaii. Every Hawaiian-themed bar in the world wishes it could be this one. Blossoming culinary scene, rooted arts community defines Kauai Beaches with views: Theres no preparing for the spectacle of Kauais north shore, with its mountains dripping green and beaches aglow with golden sand.

Beyond their appearance in some of the most beloved dishes, potatoes also boast many benefits to your diet. Here are few reasons to add this versatile vegetable into meals: Potassium: Potatoes are a great source of potassium, which may help lower high blood pressure, making them a heart-healthy choice. In fact, potatoes contain more potassium than a banana or spinach. Vitamins: A spud a day may keep the cold germs away. One medium-sized spud has nearly half the recommended daily value of vitamin C and is also a good source of vitamin B6. Dietary fiber: Potatoes are also a source of dietary fiber, a complex carbohydrate, which is known to increase satiety and help with weight loss. Gluten free: Potatoes are a naturally gluten-free food, so those with gluten sensitivity can enjoy this flavorful vegetable. Bring out the flavors of your comfort dishes by pairing them with a perfectly suited wine. A spicy red with raspberry and peppery flavors, Zinfandel pairs particularly well with dishes below. When searching for the perfect complement to your hearty, comfort fare, go for wines that deliver on quality at a fair price.

14 WATERFRONTTIMES.COMJanuary2014Waterfront Times WATERFRONTTIMES.COMones win acceptance, not alienation. The fishing rules, still a work in progress, say you can fish and dive in the special zone, but not at anchor. Mooring buoys will be installed instead. So far so fair. Lobsters cant be taken. Neither can grouper of any size, the idea being that little ones will be allowed to grow into the big, big ones that visitors to the park enjoy seeing while snorkeling and diving. Spear fishermen enjoy big grouper, too. So do hook and line fishing-doers, but there is this difference: Hook-and-liners can release what they catch. The grouper they let go catch their breath, hide a while and come out swimming like new. Stick one with a spear and its done for. Theres one exception for spear fishers in the special recreation zones rules. Theyre allowed in there to spear all the lionfish they can, for lionfish are unwanted exotics that take over reefs and devour the forage of native species. Thats the only bone the spearers were thrown. Did someone shout Thanks a lot!? It looks like the fingers being put on us spear fishermen and were being pushed out, said a man named Manny, already feeling deprived by marine sanctuaries off the Keys. Its just sanctuary after sanctuary, and what information do you have that were to blame? Were trying to help the environment. And you want me to protect your resource but you wont let me use it. When most of the steam was let off, Tony Grogan spoke up. He runs Spearboard.com, which he says is the largest spear fishing website. Grogan sounded like spear fishermen did before they felt betrayed: We believe in collaboration and reconciliation. Not all the right people are giving you the input you should have The goals are great. Everybody wants a good environment. Youre supposed to go after people who are out on the water and have no idea what theyre doing Some of the people who put this stuff together dont have a clue what theyre doing. One of those people, the FWCs McCawley, apparently wasnt insulted. I do think that the spear fishing folks comments can be accommodated, she told me. After the public comment period closes on Feb. 20 we will work with the Park to review all the comments and how they can be addressed. Tony Grogan asked for public education at the bayside marinas and ramps where boaters enter the park something thats already in the plan but he rightly added thats not enough: On the docks, on the boat ramps, thats how you find out how many fish people caught. At the marinas its incredibly important to have someone there, checking. He was talking about enforcement. Weve all argued for years that under-enforcement of existing regulations bears a lot of the blame for Biscaynes fishing decline. Almost everyone who speaks at public hearings emphasizes it. We do have people that enforce the rules and regulations of the park day in and day out, superintendent Carlstrom said in his wrap-up of the first public hearing. You may not see them, but theyre there. Several people hooted derisively, and not unfairly. Its true that people get busted for fishing violations, but Biscayne has an enforcement staff of just five rangers. Scofflaws and the ignorant can fill their coolers with undersized fish and lobsters for a long time before theyre spotted and stopped. Unless the National Park Service lets Carlstrom multiply enforcement, or the FWC can flood the special recreation zone with its own officers, none of us should hold our breath until Biscaynes fishery problem is solved. Feedback: witzfish@att.net.Up closePublic comments on Biscayne National Parks general management plan will be taken by the National Park Service through Feb. 20. Plan details are online at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/bisc. The park intends to implement Alternative 6, subject to changes that may be inspired by constructive criticism from the public. Online commentary details can be found at the same website. You can also send suggestions to this postal address: Biscayne National Park General Management Plan, P.O. Box 25287, Denver Colo. 80225-0287.

The most common license sought is the OUPV or “six pack,” so named since the license limits the operator to carrying six or fewer passengers in uninspected vessels only. The Master and Master/Mate credentials, on the other hand, not only allow license holders to operate as a six pack licensee, but also certain inspected vessels (limited to the tonnage listed on their credentials), and to carry more than six passengers, providing it is otherwise allowed by the legal restrictions in place on that vessel. The license that the potential candidate applies for will most likely be based on past boating experience and the size vessels used during that time. The requirements beyond a qualifying past history on vessels for any of these credentials includes a physical exam, first aid and CPR training, a drug test and, of course, a written exam. While it is possible to pursue your captain credentials through personal study, there are more than a few schools that will not only guide you through the exams, but will assist with the initial paperwork and gathering of your credentials for review by the U.S. Coast Guard. They also will continue to help with these matters when it comes time for your renewal application (many consider this assistance alone worth the price of participation). While getting a captain’s license may not be necessary for your personal boating goals, just pursuing these credentials can quite possibly make you a better educated and safer boater in the future — which could prompt better luck than the practice of eating black-eyed peas and collared greens! Happy New Year! Mark Ercolin is a maritime attorney based in Fort Lauderdale. The information offered in this column is summary in nature and should not be applied to specific cases or situations. Carrying one or more passengers for hire; carrying one or more charter passengers when one owns or represents the owner of the vessel; carrying one or more charter passengers for consideration; carrying cargo for hire, and finally, operation of an inspected vessel. As you can see, under many circumstances the need for credentials while operating a vessel can be rather broad. This is particularly true when it comes to carrying passengers. If you take some friends out on your boat and they return the favor by buying you dinner, it’s unlikely this would be considered a “passenger for hire” situation. However, when we go a bit beyond this scenario, things can become tricky. A good example is the dive instructor who gets paid for teaching students, though the final dive when they go out to the reef is supposed to be free. Legally, this situation has generally been interpreted as a “hire” situation. To be sure, getting a captain’s license does require a certain amount of dedication. But if you’re already a dedicated boater, it may not seem like much of a hassle, and the rewards (even at an educational level) might make the project worth investigating. For the most part, anyone seeking a captain’s license to transport passengers will want credentials that permit the operation of a vessel under 200 gross tons. Excluding certain specialty type operations — such as commercial towing — the credentials available for most smaller craft include: operator of (small) uninspected passenger vessels, under 100 gross tons (otherwise known as the “six pack” or the OUPV); Master — not more than 100 gross ADMIRALTY LAW AIR COMPRESSORSYSTEMS for DIVERS Compressed Air Supplies and Equipment, Inc.Specializing in the Diving Industry Fill Whips & Panels/Manifolds  Yokes  Gauges Filters  Hoses  Oils  Air Storage Tanks & Fittings Our Clients include: Dive Resorts & Scuba Shops Yacht Owners & Captains, Divers, Fire Dept.800 OldGriffinRd.,#3PHONE:(954)929-4462Dania, FL33004FAX: (954)929-4463E-MAIL: CompAirSupply@att.netBauerNew Used Supplies Sales Service New year, new opportunities as a boat captain Custom Marine Canvas & UpholsteryCreatively Custom Made… Just the Way You Want it in Ways You’ve Never Seen Before!

MARK ERCOLIN Waterfront Times Columnist Logically, the beginning of a new year is just another day on the calendar in what hopefully is a long and prosperous life. But in truth, we tend to see it as a time to reflect, review and plan out a better future for ourselves and those we care about. Some of us will participate in rituals created to garner good fortune — such as the southern tradition of eating collared greens and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, or the Spanish practice of consuming 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight. Others will take a more pragmatic approach, and review their career goals and ways to alter or supplement them. This could include going back to school and acquiring professional credentials and licenses, such as the acquisition of a captains or masters license. Unlike the Masefield poem, a seasoned mariner understands there is more about going to sea than just asking for “... a tall ship and a star to steer her by.” It actually helps to have some knowledge, experience, and sometimes — for legal purposes — credentials. In fact, many come to realize that seeking a captain’s license can prove valuable in quite a few common circumstances. Generally, when operating a vessel in U.S. waters, a license is required for doing any of the following, according to U.S. Code.
