"WHEN YOUR SHIP COMES IN..."
AT THE BOAT SHOW
By Sheila Lynn
Twenty five years in the making, the 1984 Fort
Lauderdale International Boat Show is to be the
biggest and the best ever. Being held during the
first week in November at Bahia Mar, and
estimated crowd of thousands will storm the site
with their "OOH'S and AAH'S". Whether an
interested buyer, or just an impressed
vacationer, the Boat Show has something to offer
viewers, one and all.
While visiting the docks at Bahia Mar, you might
stop to consider the painstaking work that is
behind the beauty presented to you. From one fine
line on a draftman's table, to the polished
product, each and every step towards finalization
is carefully nurtured. Each calculated inch is
checked and rechecked for perfection. No flaw is
left behind for question. Hour upon hour is spent
in the duration of this process,. with almost a
hundred people involved in various stages of
Phase One: Design and Detail. The first stage of
processing is to formalize an idea. Upon
consideration, this is perhaps the hardest phase
to grasp, since there are only drafted blueprints
to visualize the said product. Absolute accuracy
is essential, as it is from these prints that the
builders perform the ardiuos task of piecing
together the materials for the finished product.
Using the guidelines that the designer has
supplied, this brings us into phase two.
Phase Two: Building per Specifications. Shipyards
around the globe are filled with many talented
craftsmen. These are workers who have
dedicated their lives to performance, and the end
results, more often than not, are absolutely
breathtaking. With materials and long hours of
labor, hulls are carefully formed. Sanding,
sealing and protecting are just a few steps that
these workers follow with the utmost accuracy.
In some instances, modifications to designs are
'-"-Fues4ted, and often some reworking is involved.
This time and extra effort must also be taken into
consideration. Electrical wiring, appliance
installation, light fixtures, almost every item
imagineable aboard a boat is in one way or
another tied into the process of building per
'Phase Three: Decoration. When the exterior and
under-hull work is completed, the vessel is now
ready for interior decoration. The tasteful and
consciencious work that is involved in this
process stems from the various supply houses
around the world. Hand-painted fabric, carpet,
and other various interior design materials are
purchased with the meticulous eye of the
decorator. Working hand in hand with the
laborers involved in this process, installation is
performed under a watchful eye, leaving no
detail too small for perfection.
Furnishings are also part of decorum, and each
vessel is designed with the best of taste. Whether
a seamstress, or supplier, there is definitely an
air of "confidence" in the process of decoration.
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL-The largest in-water
boat show in the United States, The Fort
Lauderdale International Boat Show, will
celebrate its 25th Anniversary from Thursday,
November 1 through Monday, November 5 at
Bahia Mar Hotel and Yachting Center.
The show has come a long way in those 25
years, making stops along the way at Pier66, War
Memorial Auditorium, Dania Jai Alai, Port
Everglades and on the banks of the New River.
The show was designed to allow
manufacturers, distributors and dealers to
exhibit and sell boats in one place at one time.
Today's show with more than 700 in-water and on
land exhibits has earned the reputation of being a
truly international event with exhibiting
companies from Europe and the Far East joining
our Nation's leading manufacturers and dealers.
This year's show promises to be as impressive
as any previous show. From rowing shells and
dinghies in the modest price range to sportfishing
boats and sailboats to yachts valued at3 million
dollars, visitors can plan on a full day of
exploring and shopping.
Several special events including exclusive
sportswear fashion shows, live musical
entertainment, diving,fishing and cooking clinics
are scheduled throughout the five day
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is
sponsored by the Marine Industries Association
of South Florida and managed'and produced by
Yachting Promotions Inc., in Fort Lauderdale.
The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
will be open from noon to 10 p.m. Thursday,
November 1 and Friday November2:10 a.m. to 10
p.m. Saturday, November 3: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Sunday, November 4; and noonto6 p.m. Monday,
Admission is $6.00 for adults, $2.00 for children
On impact, the reflection of decor to the hull
design itself gives the vessel it's own character.
Laced from stem to stern with impecable taste,
she is now definitely a finished product, and one
to be proud of.
Phase Four: Scrub-Down and Make Ready. Upon
the arrival of a finished boat to a docking site at
the show, many boat crews are involved in the
preparation of vessels for the public. The
watchful eye of service managers and
supervisors make the process which would be a
lengthy one, flow smoothly. From mopping aft-
decks to polishing brass fixtures, not one area of
the vessel is left untouched. Even the actual
water-line is scrubbed on a daily basis for the
show. (Crews using flotation rafts bring soft
cloths and a lot of elbow-grease with them for this
step of preparation).
Phase Five: Presentation. Upon initial
presentation, the public is greeted by various

When showing the final product to you, the
public, months and months of long working days
fall into place. Your critical eye and reaction is
completely monitored by various personnel
throughout the stay of the show. It is your
response and attitude that provides these
credited workers with a sense of pride. Pride in
good judgement, taste and a job well done. So
when you are viewing the inventory of the
International Boat Show here in Fort Lauderdale,
remember the steps it took to bring to you what
you now have the privelege to see. Perhaps it will
,make waiting for "YOUR SHIP TO COME IN" a bit
less sullen and a bit more spirited.

IYA's activities have included boating trips and
presents for the underprivileged, maritime college
scholarships, and such things as sponsorship of Sea
Scout Ship No. 332. If the boat your reader complains
about had been donated to the IYA, our marine
surveyor members would have evaluated it to make
sure that it was safe and appropriate to the needs of the
Scouts before it would have been used for that
purpose. Then, we would have approached our
membership...several local yards and marinas are
associated...for free dockage.
We agreed to sponsor this particular Sea Scout troop
only because someone like John Ziegler is the leader
and. because our members have the expertise to
instruct these young Scouts in every phase of the
operation and maintenance of a vessel. If the SeaScout
troop involved in the prior incident had had this same
expertise and leadership, a better result would have
followed. No boys of Scouting age are equipped to own,
maintain, and operate a boat without supervision. The
Coast Guard constantly rescues grown men who have
not learned to respect the sea. What is required is the
respect that comes-from years of smooth, uneventful
passages interspersed with seconds of sheer terror
from sudden storm, the unforeseen machinery or-
equipment failure, or the collision at sea.
Your reader has a valid complaint against an
unidentified group of young Sea Scouts and their
leaders, but did she go to meetings to evaluate the
group in question to see whether they were capable of
operating and maintaining the donated boat? If they
were riot ready for this, there could have been loss of
life as well as loss of the boat. I certainly wish your
reader had checked out the IYA and ship No. 332 before
she unfairly compared them to the group.

of information in the southern Florida area. However,
so far the best sources he knows of are: the National

The South Broward Citizens for a Better Environment
(So. Bro. CBE) has filed a petition for formal hearing
(Attachement 1) in response to the Department of
Environmental Regulation's recent issuance of intent
to permit on the dredge and fill permit (Attchement 2)
for the proposed county incinerator and ash dump at
St. Rd. 84 and 441. The petition calls for a formal
administrative hearing prior to issuance of the actual
dredge and fill permits by DER and could tie up the
project: for over a year including time for appeals. The
petition cites failure by DER to properly assess the
impact of the proposed project on the water quality,
fish and wildlife, and particularly, the manatees living
in the area of the site, Further, the petition holds that no
proper study has been done on the combined effects of
the incinerator, landfill, and 1-595. One issue of special
concern is that the limited environmental assessment
performed by DER (Attachement 3) is not only
extremely sketchy, it is in fact overtly negative toward
the project. This assessment, performed by Steve
Burian who has since left DER, reaches a definitely
negative conclusion stating "The potential
mismanagement of wastes, failure of the leachate
collection/containment system, cross contamination
of the stormwater and leachate system and a multitude
of other problems which could occur at this facility and
have occurred at other resource recovery projects,
suggest a high probability of some sort and/or long
-term negative impacts to water quality." Yet DER is
willing to ignore its own study and allow the county to
damage the water quality.
DISCOVERY CENTER HOSTS
"THE VISUAL ART OF MUSIC"
By Joy Bedick
FORT LAUDERDALE- The Discovery Center will host
the exhibit "The Visual Art of Music", November 6-
The exhibit features paintings by Ruben Varga, a
blind violinist and composer. The paintings are
accompanied by music by Varga himself, available to
the viewer/listener through sets of earphones. This
exhibit challenges visitors to hear the paintings and
see the music.
"The Visual Art of Music" was conceived by Dr.
Leonard Greene, president of the Institute for
Socioeconomic Studies, and developed by the Hudson
River Museum in New York.
The Discovery Center will host "Seashell Chimes"
workshops at various times throughout November.
To make music from the sea, participants will
choose various shells and create unique seashell
The Discovery Center will host the following free
films at 3 p.m. every Saturday and Sunday throughout
November 3-4 ................... "Musicmakers"
November 10-11 .............. "Music To Live By"
November 17-18 ........ "Another Kind Of Music"
November 24-25 ..................."Really Rosie"
The Discovery Center is located at 231 S.W. Second
Avenue. Hours are 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through
Friday; 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday; and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Sunday. For more information, call 462-4116.
So. Bro. CBE intends to fight each of the 29 permits
the county must obtain to complete this project. "Our
goal is to delay the county every step of the way until
we can force the commissioners to consider more
rational alternatives. There are viable alternatives to

concerning the procedure the county has chosen to
obtain the permits necessary for this project.
Specifically, by obtaining the permits one at a time the
county runs the risk of beginning to work based on one
permit when future applications for other permits
might be denied, causing the initial work to be in vain.
Other regulatory agencies will also be challenged if
they permit the project. Currently, there are different
restrictions required by EPA and the Army Corps of
Engineers concerning various aspects of this project.
For example, while DER requires that all mitigation be
completed with a year of beginning dredge and fill, the
EPA requires that all mitigation be completed entirely
before any actual project work can begin (See
Attachement 4). Contrary to county claims, none of the
permits required for this project has actually been
Air Quality permits are of particular concern to So.
Bro. CBE since the DER has openly admitted that they
do not know the long-term effects of dioxins and yet do
not have the funding necessary to research the issue
properly. The So. Bro. CBE holds strongly that until
adequate testing of dioxins can be performed, the
county should defer any expensive projects which may
rendered worthless in the event such studies have
negative results. The EPA is currently initiating in
depth studies of dioxins. One recent finding says that
dioxins can be essentially eliminated by raising and
maintaining the temperature in a mass-burn facility
and all the way up to the stacks to a level of 1600
degrees centigrade (See Attachement 5). Unfortunately
this solution is not possible at the St. Rd. 84 and 441 site
since the stacks will be under the flight path of the Ft.
Lauderdale/Hollywood. International Airport. If the
EPA should begin to require such high temperatures in.
order to minimize dioxin emissiofsrr,thiS-site would
then be a waste of the taxpayers money.
Unfortunately, under the law, citizens groups such
as So. Bro. CBE must-take the regulatory agencies and
the county to court in order to get them to properly
investigate the negative effects of the project on the
water and air quality in Broward County. So. Bro. CBE
attorney Larry Gore estimates that more than $20,000
will be necessary to fight the first permit, including
filing costs, studies, and expert witnesses. Steve
Simmons is confident that the money will be raised but
admits that it is a long & slow battle. "We need all the
help we can get. We're currently having weekly garage
sales, holding a drawing for prizes, and soliciting
donations from homeowners and businesses. Given
adequate funding, we can and will win this fight" says

BROWARD'S ARTIFICIAL REEF
PROGRAM NEEDS DIVERS'
By Byran Brooks
On Thursday night September 13, Steve Somerville
from the Broward County Environment Quality Control
Board was the guest speaker at the monthly UnderSeas
Sport Club Meeting. The meeting was held at the
Ancient Marinerm the floating restuarant on South
New River Drive East and S.E. 5th Avenue.
Steve's talk was on the state of the Artifical Reef
Program in Broward County which his agency in
County government handles.
Somerville stated that the County has the money and
interest to establish more artificial reefs in the way of
old ships but right now lacks the derelict ships in which
to clean up and sink.
He believed that there were some old ships on the
Miami River but at this time he is unable to get them up
to Broward County.
He also stated that once theships are purchased and
towed here the Dive Clubs such as UnderSeas Sport
Club would have to help clean up the vessels to pass
Coast Guard Inspection so that they can be dropped
outside the third reef in water deep enough to satisfy
the Coast Guard and not too deep for the divers.
The last sinking of the ship Lowrance/Mazon was in
ten hundred feet of water and was put there for the
fisherman. Somerville said that their Fishing Club the
Pompano Fishing..Rodeo had gotten together with the
Electronics company named Lowrance and together
they were able to drop the boat in a suitable depth for
Steve Somerville pointed out he would like the next
shiipto go to the divers but they would have to help the
County in cleaning it up.
Later Steve Somerville said he had talked to aides of
Congressman E. Clay Shaw to see if there was any
possibility of getting a surplus Navy ship from
Jacksonville. He said the aides seemed interested in
the idea. Steve wanted the ship for the divers to have
character not like some barren barge. The Navy boat
would definitely fall into that category.
The club members in attendance gave every
indication that divers indeed would be able to help in a
united way so that more ships could be sunk
benefitting both the environment and the divers.
The wreck of the tugboat Trio Bravo almost two
years ago was discussed by Somerville. He stated that
the boat ended up in almost 160 feet of water which was
a little too deep for safe diving. However on a positive
note the ship had been an instant home for both corals
and fish as slides taken recently from the wreck would
Steve said that the Lowrance/Mazon had gone down
in good fashion and he complemented the Navy divers
who placed the charges that sent the 435 foot freighter
to Davy Jones Locker.
THe bottom line is that the County has the interest
and some money to sponsor the project but the diving
community would have to ban together forthe common
good to assist.
Somerville had some good historical slides which
showed the quality of fishing in days gone by. All
agreed that the past would never in all likelihood
return. The miles of mangroves which surrounded
most of Fort Lauderdale is gone probably forever and
the reef system was definitely effected in a permanent
fashion when Lake Mabel was turned into Port
Everglades but it is hoped that with the sinking of ships
along our coast line and more interest by government
in quality control for the environment that in some way
the decay of our fish and coral life can be turned

instructor work for dive shops which depend on
equipment. sales to stay in business. For many,
instruction is a write-off which must lead to sales for
profit. That's the nature of the business and you should
be aware of it. However, in the classroom, your
instruction should be objective and you should be
trained to operate the equipment and depend on it as an
extension of you while in the water.
Purchasing full scuba is not necessary as student. It
should be supplied for the entire duration of the course.
Your education should include how to discriminate
between different types, brands and functions of the
many choices available. In short, some education
should be directed at educating you as a consumer.
This is far cry from an instructor saying "Buy This
Because... I recommend it or I use It." You should ask
why and be convinced of real need and notegoorother
superficial reasons. Don't wind up standing on the back
of the boat with a thousand worth of gear and not
knowing why or how to use it. On the other hand, don't
ever dive without adequate equipment.
Most entry level courses include a supplied regulator,
back pack, tank and buoyancy compensator vest for
the entire course. You should except this as a absolute
minimum. You will be required to furnish your own
personal gear. This may include mask, fins, snorkel,
booties, gloves, weight belt and weights, but is not
limited to these items. Watches, depth gauges, slates
and. a host of related incidentals are usually not
required for training but may still be necessary for your

variety of type availble,you experience various designs,

make sure the equipment is properly maintained-
other than the obvious of asking to see the equipment
you get for training-is to keep a watchful eye when it is
time to rinse the gear after your pool session.-lf care is
haphazard and leaves you feeling like you hope you
are not the one to get that piece of gear next, then
perhaps you might be better off somewhere else.
To avoid finding out after the fact, a check with a prior
student may be very enlightening in this and many
other aspects of the course you're considering.
Equipment malfunctions are extremely rare in diving-

When selecting your scuba classes you should
determine the total cost of the complete course.
Beware of hidden costs. Tuition may not include boat
charter fees, cirification documents, rental fees, text
books, air fills or all equipment necessary. Find out
before you are locked into a course what additional
charges made be imposed. Ask for a breakdown of
charges and don't accept a "package deal" unless it
covers total cost.
Dive trips necessary to complete your certification may
also require over night travel. Check, before you
register for the class if this will be the case and find out
how much travel, hotel, meals and charter rates will
After all your class and pool work is completed the
adventures begin. The most exciting aspect of the
whole course is the diving. Diving, unlike many other
sports, requires substantial planning and advance
preparation.Dive planning should be the culmination of
your training. All the information and skills taught
begin to take substance; theory becomes practical
application and practice generates the relaxation and
enjoyment you will receive.
Schedules for diving should be agreed upon no later
than 3 to 4 weeks prior to diving.Inquire beforehand
whether you will have a say in where, when and how
the diving will be conducted. Find out if alternative
sites are available due to inclement weather and what
the policy is regarding missed dives, boats, etc. Many
.instructors charge make up fees due to rescheduling
Of concern to you is the depth of which you will be

'Many instructors include a dive on a sunken wreck

questions. Remember, make the most of your training.
After certification your opportunity to continue
training, diving, hunting, sightseeing, photographing,

IMPORTANT SAFETY ASPECTS
MANY SKIPPERS MISS
By Bill Lange
Probably true for any launching ramp, but speaking
of two I know best, there is chagrin, despair, contempt,
comedy, success, and sometimes drama where the
landlubbers mix with the small sea whalers. The
boaters (at least for now) denizens of this theater refer
to themselves as "the 15th Street Navy"...and rightly so
since almost all have a wide variety of background
involvement with things nautical.
But they are not going to impose on you and
probably feel that "experience is the best teacher."
They are truly forebearing.
Futhermore, the actors who take the launching ramp
plunge are per se "skippers". Now that land-life has
much deteriorated in most places, a "person's home is
a person's castle" may not always be justification for
one's actions. But aboard ship the "skipper" has
retained stature (even if I sometimes have to ask" who
is the skipper here?").
Now hear this, ye other strata of Waterfront News
readers. Oh, true live-it-upper of the New River and the
Venice of America, don't you also observe rather un-
skipper-like scenes at docks, or underway....even by
boaters who look down on the launching ramp types?
It is sad. It sometimes costs lives. For if the
mishandling of a vessel...the Coast Guard includes any
powered thing afloat from a windsurfer on up in the
nautical definition...is noticeable, the hidden, life-

boating trip so that your non-appearance will be

notifying the Coast Guard. How long departed, type of
boat, number aboard, route?
FUEL TANK FAILURE
This is a hard one to handle. Suffice it to say that an
increasing number of boat fires or explosions, or of
leaks detected just in time by an observant skipper, are
due to pin holes developing from corrosion. Sure it may
be impossible to see the tank bottom...all the more
reason you must question its condition. Likewise
check tank top and sides for stress of flexing, for
trapped moisture, for unusual hardening or softening
of the material around the tank, for discoloration or
order. Call a professional marine surveyor.
Without having kept count I'd guess that only one out of
fifty boaters uses wheel chocks when launching at a
ramp. Probably even fewer since there is many a busy
Saturday when I never see chocks. Yet at least several
towing vehicles a day tremble as though about to, slip,
and sometimes a crew person is yelled at to apply the
foot brakes in all haste. Several times a year a vehicle
slides back into the drink with or under the boat. Why
not use wheel chocks?

And when recovering a boat the ramp is often green-
slick, the driving wheels too close to the water, or the
boat heavy with bilge water. The wheels spin, the
rubber smokes...a search is made for some scrap
material. Yet no chocks. Your rating from 15th Street
Navy is "galley hand, bottom class"....and what will
you fill in on the insurance claim?
HOW DOES YOUR VESSEL BOB?
In other words...know and constantly feel its rolling
period; the hull posture of your boat. Those who launch
forgetting to put in the plug should feel a problem even
before some guest "wonders if that water around my.
ankles is normal". Or if a crack has opened the
helmsperson should feel the sluggish hull before water
kills the engine or floods the cabin. A through-hull
fitting may give away. Many such leaks can probably
be controlled if you are alert, know where such weak
points may occur, and preferably have precut plugs
plus damage control materials.
SAFETY ITEMS WHICH ARE DATED
Certain items are dated and you must watch expiration
from a legal viewpoint. But it is really for safety since
useable life does decrease until full effectiveness is not
at hand in an emergency. Among these items:
a) VISUAL DISTRESS SIGNALS: Pyrotechnics
eventually will fail to fire. Keep outdated ones as a
reserve (the first three meteors are seldom seen). Date
of manufacturer and date of expiration are both
stamped on the flare handle and projectile case.
b) SOME FIRE EXTINGUISHERS: Most have a guage
which must show a full charge. Installed carbondioxide
tanks have a 12 month tag. Cartridge type
extinguishers have a tag valid for six months. Most
Class A fire dousers, such as soda and ash are tagged.

USING A MARINE SEXTANT
By James E. Sullivan
The sextant is an instrument for measuring
angles between two objects. When used in
celestial navigation it measures the angular
distance above the.visible sea horizon to a body
in the sky (sun, star, planet, or moon). The
measurement is in degrees, minutes and tenths of
minutes of arc. By timing this measurement the
navigator can enter a book (the Nautical
Almanac) to locate the exact position of this body
on earth-the subpoint. The almanac will givethe
Greenwich Hour Angle (longitude) and
declination (latitude) for the body for any second
of time. This position may be plotted on a chart.
The navigator subtracts the sextant angle from
900 and draws this new angle as a circle around
the subpoint. The navigator is somewhere on this
circle. For example he measures 410 subtracts
from 900 to get 490 and uses this to draw a circle
of eaual altitude around the subpoint.
A second and a third body can be measured and
timed to obtain a two or three circle fix or in the
case of the sun wait two hours between
observations. This method is now rarely used by
navigators as new methods have replaced the
need to plot the subpoint of the body.
In pilotage or coastal navigation the sextant is
often used to measure the two angles between
three landmarks to obtain an extremely accurate
position. The sextant is held horizontally and the
middle landmark is brought over to the left

SCHIPPERKE: THE PERFECT
October 15-November1 15. 1984
By John E.G. Simpson
Why not a dog bred especially for boaters?...the
perfect boating accessory!
There is such a breed, and as a matter of fact, has
been since the thirteenth century. Schipperkes,
pronounced, "Skip-per-key", are, and always have
been, exclusively boat dogs. It is a Flemish word,
meaning "Little Captain". Schipperkes originated in
Belgium before the fourteenth century. They loved to
ride on and guard the horse-drawn barges along the
Belgian canals. They're still used in Belgium as work
dogs, even picking up lines with their mouths,
transferring them from one barge to another.
Winston Churchill specified in his will that his
Schipperke ride the barge that took Mr. Churchill's
coffin down the Thames River. Schipperkes were first
in the USA in 1899, and the first registered by AKC in
A Schipperke is the idea, size for apartments and
South Florida homes, as well as boats. Not resembling
any other breed, it is tailless (sometimes at birth),
short-haired, solid black, sharp-looking with a strong
neck and back, and weighs from 10 to 18 pounds. The
coat is luxurious, thick and glossy, and is relatively
short, with a ruff around the neck and shoulders. The
coat needs no grooming other than an occasional
brushing to keep it clean and shiny. A skip's tiny feet
have no long shaggy hair, and so do not carry mud and
sand in the boat or home. Skip's are free from body
odor, a very big factor when choosing live-aboard
companions. Skip's don't even smell bad when'they are
wet! They are extremely active, and are capable of
getting adequate exercise in a small place.
As watch dogs, Schipperkes are excellent...and
faithful! Everything written about a Schipperke always
.-mentions that they are unaware of the limitations of
their size. Believe it! It has a fierce devotion to protect
the family. It feels a constant sense of duty and
discriminates carefully between friend and stranger.
Skips are tirelessly inquisitive busybodies, eagerto
investigate any source of sound or movement. They
are natural watchdogs with guarding instincts, taking
their guarding seriously, vigilantly protecting family,
yard, home, boat and car.
Tp top it off, Skips even have a long lifespan,
frequently living more than fifteen years.
Al in all, they're hard to beat, a perfect "Little
Captain" tfor every captain!

A calm autumn day would be a great time to head
offshore to fish those fabulous grouper grounds off
Florida's West Coast. Being a member of the Hollywood
Sportfishing Club, I make the outing to Marco at least
twice during the late summer with several other
members, It's a good idea to make the long trip offshore
with other boats in case there is a problem. Thirty plus
miles out at sea without power, alone, can be a real
We usually stay at the Snook Inn located on Big
Marco Pass not too far from the open Gulf. The time of
day seems to make little.difference in fishing but we try
to leave the dock early as to beat the summer heat.
Often times, late afternoon thunderstorms kick the
seas up and send anglers back to port early.
A heading between 2100 and 2250 takes you to some
great grouper areas. The Gulf shelf has a very gradual
slope so a long boat ride is in order. Carry a lot of fuel.
Hard rocky bottom is found at almost any depth.
Around these holes and ledges lurk the Red Grouper.
Shallow areas are more frequently fished. Generally
speaking, larger fish are found further offshore. Some
shallow water wrecks can offer fabulous fishing if you
can locate them. This is where the Loran-C is a must.
Once you know the numbers of these "secret spots",
you can return to them with a push of a button.
The water depth increases about 2 feet for every
mile you run out into the Gulf. We like to star fishing in
around 60 feet. Turn the chart recorder on and look for
rises or depressions in the bottom. Ledges are
excellent areas to start fishing. A slight breeze is
favorable to move you slowly across good fishing
areas. Too fast of a drift keeps your bait off the bottom
and makes it necessary to drop back often. Drift along
until you start catching fish and then throw out a
A marker can be made by wrapping some heavy line
around a gallon plastic jug. A heavy weight is attached
to the other end of the line. Simply throw in the jog over
the side; the weight unravels the line from the jug. The
marker serves as a reference point from where you are
catching fish. When finished, pick up the jug and wrap
the line back around it for further use.
Plug or spin tackle is ideal with line testing up to 20
pound test. Heavy boat rods are not really necessary
because these fish usually run under twelve pounds.
Sometimes an occasional 20 pound red or black comes
around and becomes a real challenge on light tackle.
always happen. One time, I battled one of these "Brown
Marlin" for two hours because I had him hooked in the
While fishing for Grouper, I've encountered Kingfish,
Mackerel, Amberjack, a Sailfish, even schools of tiny
Dolphin plu other predators. After the fall migrations
begin each year it is possible to catch several species
on their way South. Finding a calm day to run far
offshore could be tough in the fall and winter.
Our outings to the Snook Inn have been a lot of fun.
We book the entire motel for a weekend and they even
provide us with a Fish Fry second to none. Our fish-
their trimmings. If you want a tight line and some tasty
fillets, try Grouper fishing in the Gulf.
Don't forget your ship to shore radio.
Pictured are Jerry Kerlin and Bill Rhodes gloating
over a days catch of Red Grouper.
Two or three ounce bucktail jigs are killers tipped with
a strip of squid or mullet. White glow worms with
twister tails on a jig prove to be excellent also. Small
live fish are hard to beat. Even large pieces of cut bait
work well. While drifting along, I'll take a small
spinning rod and drop a small cut bait to the bottom.
Tiny Lane Snappers and Grunts are easily caught and
make great live bait. We find that where Lane Snappers
are present you will usually find grouper. It is possible
to catch two or three Grouper on a single bait. Since
Grouper have gums and small teeth the bait gets
swallowed whole and many times can be used again
and again. Lane Snappers don't mind a bit!
The secret is to start the Grouper feeding. It seems
that once one is hooked up others come around and
strike anything: They actually compete for the bait.
Most often, you'll catch the larger, more aggressive
fish first. Black or Grey Grouper will come way off the
bottom to strike a bait on its way down. Many times in
a good area all the fishermen hook up simultaneously.
Beware of a lurking Jewfish. These monsters can
match the size of some foreign cars. As the Grouper
frenzy continues, one of these lunkers may happen by
and join you for dinner. A few Grouper could be missing
before long. I keep a large 6-0 ready for this occasion.
Hook a three pound live bait on and let him swim
towards the bottom. If Mr. Jewfish is still hungry you
may be in for a battle of your career.
Sometimes sharks join in the feeding also.
Monofilament leader around a 50 pound test is used
because Grouper have tiny teeth. If you hook up with a
shark the leader will probably be cut by sharp teeth and
you can go back to Grouper fishing. This doesn't

Getting hooked on fish?
The demand for fish is up. An ever growing number
of people who are watching their weight, cutting back
on fat and cholesterol, and trying to depend less on
meat are turning to fish. Not just because it might be
good for them, but it tastes good as well. A recent
Gallup-National Restaurant Association poll revealed
that 1 out of 5 people are ordering more seafood.
What exactly will fish do for you? What kinds are
Fish and shellfish are foods nutritionists call
"nutrient dense". That is, they generally offer a wealth
of nutrients as compared with the fat and calories they
supply. For example, a 31/2 ounce cooked portion of
just any kind of white fish offers about 1/3 of an adult's
Recommended Dietary Allowance for protein, yet it
contains a small amount of fat and carries less than
100 calories. Moreover, theprotein in fish is more
easily digested than that of meat because fish has less
of the thick connective tissue that supports the
muscles of land animals.
When eating fish, the primary source of fat calories
is the butter, margarine, oil, sauce, or breaded or fried
coatings added when cooking. Canned fish packed in
oil carries double the calories and more than 5 times
the fat of the same fish in water.
Are you watching your sodium? Some
manufacturers have begun to eliminate salt for you by
offering tuna with about half the sodium. Fresh fish is
quite low in sodium. However, smoked dried fish is
quite high in sodium.
Fish vary in their vitamin and mineral content. Fresh
liver oils are high.in vitamins A and D but the flesh of
white fish is not a major source of either nutrient. Fish
is a respectable source of the B vitamins. Incidently, if
you eat raw fish, you may get virtually no thiamin
because of an enzyme that can make the vitamin
unavailable to the body.
Fish tends to be higher in minerals than meat. For
example, canned salmon and sardines provide calcium
because they are packed with the bones still in the fish.
Oysters, shrimp and clams offer more calcium than
most other fish. Clams are quite high in iron. Marine
fish and shellfish are reliable sources of both iodine
and selenium. And fish can provide significant
amounts of flouride.
According to a special report by Tufts University Diet
and Nutrition letter. Fish is being praised as a food to
protect your heart. Not only does eating more of most
kinds of fish offer an ideal means of cutting back on
heart-threatening cholesterol, fat, and calories, but
fish is rich in oils that may help to prevent heart
attacks. These special poly unsaturated oils, different
from those of vegetable origin,.are termed omega-3
fatty acids...technically named eicosa-pentaenoic acid
(EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). All fish and
shellfish contain them, but oiler, fattier fish are the
richest sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
A number of studies show that eating large amounts
of omega-3 fatty acids can decrease the tendency of
blood platelet cells, involved with clotting, to stick or
clump together. This decreases the likelihood of
forming clots that can block blood flow to the heart and
Result in an heart attack. The omega-3 fatty acids have
been shown to decrease blood levels of fatty
.triglycerides and cholesterol, both associated with
Since we don't know the long term effects of eating
large quantities of fish oil, it is probably in your best
interest to avoid fish oil supplements. If you want to
increase your omega-3 fatty acid intake, your best bet
is to do it with fresh fish.Tastes better, too! Even fattier
fish is lower in calories than most cuts of meat.
Shellfish, thought to be higher in cholesterol by older
tables, are being reviewed by USDA. The new tables
will not be available until 1985.
Selection. When buying fish and shellfish, use your
nose. Fresh fish and shellfish should not smell fishy, If
buying whole fish, look for bright, non-sunken eyes,
and shiny, resilient skin that springs back after you
poke it. The gills should be clean and red, not sticky.
Fresh filets are not slimy. They hold together tightly
and are not dry or curled at the edges. Once you get
your fresh fish home, wrap it in an airtight package and
keep it in the coldest part of your refrigerator. Fresh
fish will keep twice as long at 31 F. as it will 370F. The
fish should be eaten within 2 days.
Cooking Tips. When you're ready to cook fresh or
frozen fish, bear in mind that the number one problem
is overcooking, which dries and toughens the fresh
fish. The best rule of thumb is to watch closely for a
color change as it cooks. Raw fish appears watery and
translucent, while cooked fish looks opaque and white.
When the thickest part of the fish undergoes this
change, the fish is done and should flake easily with a
To get rid. of the stronger taste and lighten the color
of darker sections of fish, try soaking in an acid
marinade with lemon juice or vinegar. Wine, onions,
and tomatoes also cut the taste.
Low-fat, low calorie methods of seafood cookery
include broiling or grilling with little or no butter, oil. or
margarine. Try covering with low fat milk and cheese
says or smother with peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms,
onions, and herbs.
Safety concerns. Most popular fish are from the deep
sea and generally contain low pollution because of
dilution. Fresh-water fish may have more
contaminants. Fish eaten with bellies, such as oysters,
clams, mussels can contain contaminents and should
be bought from reputable dealers. Eating raw seafood
is like playing "Russian roulete". The roundworm

LOG OF 'SHENANDOAH' YIELDS
By Bob Hammack
Ship's logs hold strange tales, but few match the 13
month voyage of CSS Shenandoah.
Its assignment was to distrupt Yankee whaling'trade
in the Pacific; only incidentally did it become the only
Confederate ship to circumnavigate the globe.
Shenandoah fulfilled its mission by capturing or
scuttling more than 40 Union ships to the tune of $31
million lost in whaling and merchant trade.
Commanded by the tall, aristocratic Capt.'James
Iredell Waddell, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy,
Shenandoah began its rebel raiding in October 1864,
when it was taken over by Waddell and a skeleton crew
Bought from the British, it was built in Glasgow in
1863 as Sea King, and intended for trade in the Far East.
Instead, it did the reverse.

The skeleton crew was fleshed out with an
assortment of New Englanders, free Negroes, Malays,
Danes, Swedes, Australians and any other able bodied
seamen who could be pressed into service.
Apparently, the seamen decided to join the action
rather than be set adrift or put down in foreign ports.
Waddell was continually harassed by desertions from
his miscreant mixture.
Although there was British backing of the
Confederacy against the Union, Britain maintained the
guise of neutrality when it came to Australians.
Threatened by Melbourne police and the military,
Waddell in turn threatened to fight. That peril was
avoided by surrenduring some Australians aboard the
Waddell had sought repairs in Melbourne, but left
three weeks later with what he thought was an ever
dwindling crew. Instead he had acquired more than 40
He had more than doubled his ship-jumping losses
suffered at the same port. He now had enough men to
man all his gun ports.
Despite the appearance of strength Shenandoah was
far from being a heavily armed destroyer.
Waddell had, at the start, only one small deck gun
which he used to threaten recalcitrant captains.
His arsenal grew as he captured more ships. Still, he
fired few shots, fought no battles and killed no man.
Waddell's previous command was some what
different. He was captain of the more famous
Confederate raider, CSS Alabama, which had been
blown from under him after it was attacked in a frenzy
of fire by several Union ships.
While he was its captain he had captured a ship
commanded by Capt. James Clark in 1863.
Now, two years had elapsed and James Clark was
sailing Nimrod in the Pacific when,for the second time,
he was captured and scuttled by James Waddell's
The war had been over for a month when that
occurred. Waddell knew it, but pretended ignorance or
simply disregarded the news.
When Waddell captured the whaler William
Thompson, her mate burst into the boarding party. "My
God, man, the war is ended. Didn't you know that?"
Orris Browne, the boarding officer, asked, "Did Grant
surrender?" "No," came the reply, "the Army of Virginia
surrendered. The war is over."
Browne countered the comment, "The war will not be
over until the South is free."
William Thompson's captain produced a newspaper
detailing Robert E. Lee's surrender at Appommatox.
Unfortunately, the same paper carried the "Danville
Proclamation" by Jefferson Davis, president of the
In it Davis told his troops to fight on. Even that
comment had been rescinded before Waddell got the
news of the war's end.
The news item failed to save William Thompson.
Waddell had found plans and charts of New England
whaling fleet aboard ships he would sink in Ascension
(Carolina Islands) harbor.
It also did not hurt the cause when a mate from
Abigail agreed to guide Shenandoah to the whaling-
waters of Japan and on into the Bering Strait.
Abigail was stocked with whiskey which Waddell
allowed his crew to consume in an alcoholic haze. He
had little choice in the matter.

in one day with five more fearing the fire.

Although Manning of Abigail was a turncoat, the
captain and mate were far from it.
They broke loose in their longboat and rowed and
sailed nearly 200 miles across the ice-ridden sea to
warn whalers and other ships at Cape Bering.
When Waddell burned 14 ships in one steaming
blaze, its smoking billows signaled the last act of war
in July 1865-the last "battle" of the Civil War.
Waddell knew the potential for prosecution for "war
crimes," so he headed for the nearest British port.
Unfortunately, Australia was no longer"friendly," so
the nearest port was in England. That meant a voyage
of 17,000 miles around Cape Horn.
They saw only one ship in a navigational
masterpiece of 122 days duration, a feat that even
Waddell would recognize as "very beautiful" to sailing
master Irvine Bulloch.
It was one of their early landfalls that helped produce
Shenandoah's single stamp tribute.
They stopped briefly in the rocky island port of
Tristan da Cunha which a century later would honor the
visit with a 3-penny commemorative on Feb. 17, 1965.
The stamp pictures Shenandoah and another
unnamed ship of the type Waddell so successfully
scuttled, a New England whaler.
At journey's end, Shenandoah had circumnavigated
In the meantime, though, it never touched a
homeport nor did it ever surrender to the Union.
Instead, Waddell chose to give up the ship in England
as a citizen of the Confederacy.
Had he admitted to knowing the war was over, he
and his crew could have been tried on charges of piracy
as citizens of the United States.
Waddell lived for 11 years after the close of the war
and became a captain of San Francisco of the Pacific
Shenandoah was subsequently sold by the Britishto
the Sultan of Zanzibar, and she sank one stormy
evening in the Indian Ocean.
The Shenandoah log is housed in the archives of
North Carolina in Raleigh.

FOOD FROM YOUR GALLEY
By Nedda Anders
What a sweet pleasure it is to sail off on your boat this
mild autumn day! The weather is perfection. Your
favorite mate is at the helm. You've left most of your
worries behind you. And because you always provide
such good food (no bologna sandwiches when you're in
charge of the menu), you never lack for companions to
share your on-the-water paradise. For today's cruise,
there are six aboard, and I have provided an amplitude
of dishes with great latitude for you to omit one or two
of them depending on how long you'll be afloat. For
example, you could omit the veal roast and focus on
the pasta or the bread and cheese as main course. Or
keep the veal but dispense with one of the other dishes.
Whatever choices you make, you can prepare them in
your home kitchen and carry them on board because
they carry well.
BAGUETTE FILLED WITH TOMATO AND CHEESE
Start with a good baguette or loaf of French bread.
Carry along wedges of brie, a creamy goat cheese, or
homemade mozzarella cheese. Add a pint of
wellwashed cherry tomatoes. Pick up a small basil
plant at Publix or any nursery, rinse the leaves under a
sink spray and carry it on board. Your guests help
themselves to bread, cheese, tomato, and a leaf or two
of crushed basil. (That basil plant will last, given light
and water.) Serve with a bottle of robust red wine so
everyone unwinds, then it's all hands on deck to work
SPICY BRAISED VEAL ROAST
1 boned and rolled veal roast, about 3 Ibs., see note
2 cloves of garlic
1 large sprig fresh rosemary, miced, or 1/4 teaspoon
1 large sprig fresh sage, minced, or 1/4 teaspoon
Freshly ground pepper
3/4 to 1 cup dry white vermouth or other wine
1 to 2 tablespoons oil (just enough to coat bottom of,
With thetip of a sharp knife, make shallow cuts in the .
roast in about a dozen places. Crush the garlic through
a press or with a fork, and mesh with the rosemary and.
sage to make a paste. With the tip of the knife, insert
the paste into the cuts in the roast. Grind pepper over
the roast. Heat a heavy saucepan.about thesize of the
meat, add oil then brown roast on all sides.,Pour in31/4
cup of vermouth, bring it to a boil, reduce heat to
moderate, cover pan loosely with foil and let simmer
for about 2 hours, turning roast every half hour. If
necessary, add a tablespoon or two of wine or water so
that the pan juices do not dry out. Transfer veal to
cutting board and slice no more than1/4 inch thick,
.keeping shape intact. Carry on board wrapped in foil.
Delicious warm or cooled.
NOTE: I suppose you have a healthy respect for
prices, as do, and veal roast is not a bargain meat.
However, I buy it on sale at the Sunrise S & S Meat
Market on University Drive. At less than $2.50 a pound,
veal is not a bankbuster. (This is not a paid adv.)
COLD PASTA WITH BROCCOLI AND CARROTS
I spent the summer in New York, surely the carryout
food center of the world, and this was one of the many
ways in which take-out pasta was prepared. You can
use spaghetti or fettucini or a tubular pasta like
rigatoni, ^preferably made with durum wheat as
imports usually are.
12 ounces fettucini cooked until tender but not soft
1/4 cup olive oil or other vegetable oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 tablespoons fresh basil leaves, minced (omit if
fresh basil is not available)
.3 tablespoons parsley leaves, minced
2 zucchini scrubed, cut lengthwise in quarters, then
across.in dice 1/8 inch thick
2 carrots, diced
Salt and red pepper.flakes
Drain fettucini and transfer to large bowl for carrying
on board. Toss with 1 tablespoon of the oil. In large

NATIVE FISH & HONEST BAR
By Maria Marioni
FORT LAUDERDALE...Shirttail Charlie's, a "Native Fish
and Honest Bar" restaurant, named after one of Fort
Lauderdale's most colorful historic figures, is the
newest waterfront restaurant along the New River.
Located on the south side of the New River, west of
the F.E.C. tracks, and across the river from the
Discovery Center, Shirttail Charlie's is part of the new
Riverfront Marina complex.
Shirttail Charlie was a Seminole outcast, banned
from his tribe, and forced to wear a "dress" that
amounted to extra-long shirttails. Charlie made his
living fishing, pan-handling and posing with tourists
for photographs in early Fort Lauderdale.
Shirttail Charlie's is open for lunch and dinner,
serving moderately priced seafood specialties with the
accent on native Florida fishes. The restaurant's
interior is decorated with old Florida memorabilia
including period photographs. A raw bar, pool,
dockside bar and comfortable decks with benches add
to the overall ambiance of the restaurant. The 25 slips
outside the restaurant accommodate the river traffic.
Access to Shirttail Charlie's is via the New River,
west on the New River from the Intracoastal Waterway.
On land, access is via Southwest Sixth Street, from
either Andrews Avenue or Southwest Fourth Avenue.
Take Sixth Street -to Southwest Third Avenue, turn
north and drive to the New River.
SHIRT TAIL CHARLIE...A
REMARKABLE REDMAN. OLD
TIMES ON THE NEW RIVER.
How the Waterway Was Named
Seminole legend declares that the New River sprang
up overnight, centuries after the creation of the world,
in response to the prayers of thirsty Indians. European
explorers and travelers praised the clear, swift stream.
Their native hosts remarked that it was a precious gift
-from ancestral spirits-and "new".
frying pan, add remaining oil and saute zucchini,
carrots, garlic, basil and parsley until vegetables are
just tender. Stir into pasta, sprinkle with salt and
pepper to taste. Parmesan cheese and diced walnuts or
pine nuts are optional additions.
FLORIDA FRUIT BOWL
One of the joys of living in Florida is the abundance
of native produce available here. Among the fruits
grown by one of my neighbors are cherimoyas,
carambola, papaya, litchi nuts, loquats, kumquate,
mangoes, not to mention a variety of citrus. If you can
beg or buy one or more.of these tropical treats, add
them to your fruit bowl along with wedges of peeled
cantalope, cubes of fresh pineapple and peeled slices
of kiwi. Crush some fresh mint leaves and add them to
the bowl. Serve with pretty plastic spears for self-
service. Pack a variety cakes along'with the thermoses
for hot and cold drinks. Diminitive French pastries,
Rich dark chocolate cake, Chocolate truffles, Apricot
or apple strudel. If you have a favorite bakery for any
of these goodies, please let me know. Write to-Nedda
Anders, c/o the Waterfront News.

In Henry Flagler's day, only a century ago, the river
served as an east-west highway. Proud chieftains clad
in silver and scarlet used it to transport exotic bands of
squaws and braves out of the deepest marshes of the
Everglades into town for shopping. Pitching camp at
Frank Stranahan's New River Trading Post, not far
from the site of today's Riverfront Marina, the Indians
bartered furs, plumes and alligator hides for cloth,
ammunition and a liquid.the local Mikasukis called
Traders were officially forbidden to satisfy the
redskin taste for whiskey. Commerce grew, however,
as did the number of unsober Seminoles on Fort
Lauderdale streets. Shirttail Charlie was the most
notable of these tipplers.
Charlie Tommie, a sort of southern Rip Van Winkle, is
among the best-known characters in Lauderdale
history. This genial drunk began life as the nephew of a
chief and a member of a distinguished clan. Later, as
schoolmarm Ivy Stranahan (Frank's wife) regretfully
concluded, "Charlie, like many other scions of great
families, came to grief because of fermented
liquors...and the softening influences of civilization."
Sober, Shirttail Charlie was an expert hunter and
athlete. According to reports in the Jacksonville Times
Union, he once captured seven adult gators
barehanded-"without the aid of guns, spear or knife."
Charlie seldom stayed sober. An outcast from his
tribe, he had committed obscure crimes-no one knew
specifics, though wife-murder was rumored-and had
been condemned to live alone dressed "only in his shirt
The varicolored skirts he adopted, together with a
sunny, outgoing disposition, made him a rare object of
curiosity among the throngs flocking south during the
boomtime Twenties. Most Indians were indifferent to
tourists. Charlie was not. He greeted arriving trains,
panhandled for tips, extracted "loans" and engaged in
minor thievery. He bathed only occasionally. When he
died, a street was named in his memory.
In Shirttail Charlie's era, fish abounded in the New
River. Tarpon weighing 100 pounds were common.
Shoals of mullet and other table fish were so thick that
several of Mrs. Stranahan's young pupils tried using
them as stepping stones.
Almost everyone owned a boat. Rafts-, sleek yachts,
one-cylinder smoke-pot runabouts, clumsy barges-
all plied the sweet, clean waters.
