DOCK OWNERS FIGHT
by M.G. Swift
The Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory Board
and Broward County Plumbing & Fire Code
Subcommittee to the Broward Board of Rules and
Appeals both rejected in separate hearings and
deliberations a group of local dock owners
requests for changes in the city ordinances and
county codes from which some of them were cited
in violation. Earlier in the year a team of city and
county inspectors swept through Hendricks Isle
and Isle of Venice, with citationsissued to four of
five property owners. City inspected violations to
a ten foot setback rule were observed as to
several dock owners with slips too close to
property lines. County fire inspectors noted a
lack of approved fire lines dockside despite
county regulations requiring such. Fort
Lauderdale's Planning and Zoning Board is still
debating the side yard set back issue with
another hearing set for mid May.
The Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice Dock
Owners Association was organized from about
80% of the dock owners on the two isles to appeal
these government actions. The association hired
attorney, Ron Matriana; marine consultant, and
former city marine facilities supervisor, Jack
Hornor; and former city fire chief, George
Tillinghast to help argue their case.,
Matriana and Hornor tried to persuade the
Marine Advisory Board that the set back rule

minutes). Tillinghast suggested that portable dry

BOATERS SINGLED-OUT FOR
ARBITRARY "USER FEE" TAXES
by Michael Sciulla
The federal government wants recreational boat
owners to pay millions in "user fees" for Coast
Guard'assistance they may not use, for services
being turned over to the private sector, and for
which the Coast Guard will not receive one extra
nickel, said Richard Schwartz, President of Boat
Owners Association of The United States
A bill, H.R. 1936, recently introduced by Rep.
Silvio Conte (R-Mass.), a powerful member of the
House Appropriations Committee, would grant
the Department of Transportation the authority to
charge boat owners a minimum of $136 million a
year for Coast Guard services it says are used by
In addition, a White House/Senate Republican
budget expected to steamroll through the Senate
during the week of April 21 already assumes the
collection of these "user fee" taxes.
"This bill, like past proposals, singles-out boat
owners to shoulder a burdensome and arbitrary
tax," said Schwartz, reacting to the bill and
pending vote. "We already pay our fair share," he
noted, as he challenged the Administration to
submit a legitimate "user fee" proposal where fees
would go directly to the Coast Guard for actual
services rendered, instead of to Treasury's
Under the Conte bill, all boat owners would be
forced to pay Coast Guard "user fees" regardless
of whether they used any services. The
legislation also contains no cap or maximum
ceiling on the amount of money which could be
collected. This would be left to the Transportation
Schwartz also questioned the fairness of the bill.
He pointed out that upwards of 75% of the $136
million "user fee" package is for non-emergency
assistance which the Coast Guard is already
turning over to the private sector.
He also took exception to the Transportation
Department's astonishing claim that recreational
boaters are responsible for more Coast Guard
expenditures than the entire coastal shipping
fleet, all inland commercial shipping and the
entire U.S. and foreign fishing fleets.
In addition to the flaws inherent in the bill,
Schwartz expressed little sympathy for the
Administration's proposal as boat owners have
paid nearly $300 million in federal marine fuel
taxes since 1980. Of this, only $38 million has
been returned to the states for boating safety,
education and law enforcement programs as
required by Congress.

A WATER LIMO'
by M.G. Swift
What a view from the downtown river walk.
The Fort Lauderdale City Mission Statement talks
about it. The Marine Charrette envisioned
"waterborne transportation" to connect various
waterfront hotels in Broward County with the
airport "exemplify the water-oriented nature of
our community." Bill Aubrey of Fort Lauderdale
wants to be the man to pioneer water limo'
service to the Waterfront community, docking the
boats at the city docks downtown.
Mr. Aubrey went before the Fort Lauderdale
City Marine Advisory Board to get their favorable
recommendation for his water limousine service
to take with him when he goes before the city
commission. The Board gave him that approval of
his project "in concept."
Aubrey's three wood twenty-eight foot Riva
style motor boats were shipped over from Italy;
he is taking advantage of a strong dollar and
weak lira. Powered by a six cylinder Volvo, each
water limo' will be named VONA (Venice of North

U.S. CUSTOMS PLANS NEW
PRIVATE VESSEL REPORTING
This summer, probably during June or July, the
U.S. Customs Service will implement a new
private vessel reporting system for small boats
entering the United States along the Southeast
coast of Florida. Under this program, aimed-at
making seagoing drug smugglers easier to
identify, vessels entering U.S. waters from West
Palm Beach to and including the Florida Keys, will
be required to report immediately to one of five
designated U.S. Customs inspection stations
located at West Palm Beach, Fort Lau-derdale,
Miami Beach, Marathon Key, and Key West.
The five private vessel inspection stations will be
staffed by Customs inspectors during peak
boating hours, and on an on-call basis during
non-peak periods. According to Customs' latest,
estimates, about one-fourth of the cocaine and
one-fifth of the marijuana being smuggled into
the United States arrives aboard private vessels
along the Southeast coast of Florida. Customs
officials believe this new private vesselreporting
system will increase their effectiveness in
dealing with this type of smuggling activity.
More detailed information, including the exact
locations of the five inspection stations, will be
made public within the next few weeks, and
notices outlining the program are being mailed to
Southeast Florida marinas. Arrangements can be
made for information fact sheets to be mailed, or
for Customs representatives to discuss the new
program boating community audiences,; by

THE SQUEEZE IS ON
The Broward Soil and Water Conservation
District was chartered in 1932 under Florida
Statues 582 as a governmental sub-division of the
state charged with the leadership and
responsibility of conserve the natural

West Lake Battle Moves Into Court
by Robert Mikes
As of this news paper's dead line U. S. District
Court Judge Norran Roettger Jr. has issued a 10-
day restraining order preventing any mangrove
cutting or dredge and fill operations adjacent to
the "West Lake" parcel (near Port Everglades).
The Judge was responding to a lawsuit filed by
the Environmental Coalition of Broward County
which was also supported by both Broward
Audubon and the Sierra club.
The lawsuit is an attempt by Broward
environmental groups to prevent the restriction
of 200 acres of mangrove marine habitat. This
was a requirement that the landowner extracted
from the state in order to sell the remaining tract
(West Lake) to the state and county for
approximately $20 million. If the 100 acre fill is
allowed the developer will probably sell the land
to the portto allow itto go ahead with its plans for.
a $180 million taxpayer subsidized "Newark"
class truck terminal which to recent "Booz-Allen"
study is doubtful it will be financially successful.
These remaining mangroves are so critical to
our marine food chain both inshore and to our
nearby reef system,that any further losses to
Broward's coastal wet lands will seriously
impact sport fishing and bring us closer to the
day we.will have to rely on taxpayer subsidized
artificial hatcheries etc. to replace where
possible some of our food and game fish stocks.
While artificial reefs can partially offset the
loss of a portion of our natural reef system and
their development should continue, they will
never be able to replace the unique link in our
marine breeding and food chain cycles that is
supplied by coastal wet lands.
Broward Environmental Groups such as
Audubon, Sierra and the Environmental Coalition
intend to continue to push for coastal
development controls that enchance our marine
resources and protect our quality of life in,
Broward County and the state of Florida.

MERCEDES, TROUBLE IN
by Byran Brooks
On March 30, this year the Mercedes I was sent
to the bottom with eight carefully placed charges
of explosives. The diving community rejoiced.
Finally Ft. Lauderdale had a wreck that divers
could visit and enjoy Without traveling a hundred
miles to somebody else's wreck. All's well that
ends well, end of story right? Wrong.
The problem just starts. Now every diver in the
free world and sonre communists are crawling
out of the wood work and into the port holes. Dive
boats and private boats are stacked up with
anchors dropping on the deck of two
hundred foot freighter. Poor MolTre's freighter,
there are more people on her now than there ever
were Boat captains are yelling at each other and
divers swim through" a maze'of boats trying to
find the one they came from when they return
from diving the wreck. Boats are cutting in and
out with divers in the water and in general the
situation resembles a Keystone comedy with one
exception, someone is going to get seriously hurt
and all the good publicity that Ft. Lauderdale
received could become very negative very fast.
On my last dive on a recent-weekend to the
Mercedes I the pofnt was made to me. Ten boats
were hovering around the wreck with upwards to
eighty divers in theater, ul!der the-water and
swimming through the water. In swimming
underwater around ard through the Mercedes I
thought I was at a fty percent off sale at some
dive shop. Divers were everywhere. I met them
coming through- hatches, in portholes and
swimming towards me in passageways. We
almost needed a trafficcop because of the crowd

congestion. The boat is beautiful and it looks like
everyone in the world is going to find out. Now the
problem is how to do this safely. I'm not sure the
answers are easy or even immediately attainable..
The vast amount of divers on the beautiful
North Sea freighter points out a definite need that
is only beginning to be met. We need more
wrecks. Everyone is diving the same wreck. Ft.
Lauderdale is finally beginning to be recognized
for the potential it always had as a tourist spot for
the divers. People in the tourist and hotel industry
are beginning to see it. Divers from everywhere
are definitely seeing it. We have reef s and now
we have a wreck. We've always had the good
Night life and beaches with available airports and
The problem is the same as we have on 1-95:
The dive boats are naturally in competition with
each other;so,being friendly at crowded wreck
might seem unnatural. However in seeing the
bigger picture maybe it is in everybody's best
interest that we try. It certainly would be
professional. In the Charter captains defense a lot
of the trouble is caused by smaller private boats
with divers who bring their boats too closeand
disregard the divers down flags. The next thing
that usually happens is that a large anchor is
dropped on the wreck with twenty divers or more
cruising around below. As of this writing no one
has been hurt but it has to be jut a matter of time.
I was diving with a professional underwater
photographer Tom Mounts and Mark Lawrence. I
was back on board the boat waiting for their
return. A small zodiac with two divers came
toward us and dropped their anchor. We tried to
wave them back but to no avail. Tom came up
later saying the anchor weighing over twenty
pounds had just missed his head. Incidents like
this are becoming common place.
To forstall any possible future tragedy a
meeting will be held with all interested dive boat
* operators and instructors.
Editors Note: A meeting of those in the diving
industry is scheduled to take place Tuesday, May
14, 1985 at 9 a.m. at the Holiday Inn on A1A at
Sunrise Blvd. in Fort Lauderdale.

by Ali Burger
Sport diving has become an increasingly
popular South Florida pastime. Residents and
snowbirds alike are finding that our coastal
waters offer colorful reefs, wrecks, spearfishing
and lobstering in safe waters which are easily
accessible. This fact was clearly evident at the
Dinner Key Convention Center,.April 26-28.
Although billed as the World's Largest
Consumer Ocean Convention, OceanFest '85
largely concentrated on topics of interest to the
growing number of South Florida divers. Many
area dive shops were represented with booths
offering a full line of SCUBA gear, accessories
and apparel. Representatives from such hot dive
spots such as Aruba, Cozumel, Cayman Islands
and the Bahamas were on hand to bestir dreams
of clear skies, turquoise seas, clean beaches,
and colorful reefs. Dade and Broward Counties
didn't need paid representatives each dive shop
employee seemed to be filling that role.
OceanFest '85 seeks to highlight the
interdependence of humanity and the seas
surrounding us. It was highly fitting that many
exhibits were educational in nature, seeking to
increase environmental awareness of ocean life
and resources. The plight of. our manatee
population was addressed frequently. According
to the information presented, if strong action is
not taken soon to protect these gentle mammals
speeding boaters may easily ensure their
extinction within a decade.
Throughout the convention hall mini-theatres
offered films on Dade County shipwrecks, diving
instruction, marine life, and windsurfing. Major
film festival on Saturday evening included an
appearance by Jean Michael Cousteau and film
about the Cousteau team's latest expedition.
Noted underwater cinematographer Stan
Waterman showed his newestfilm which gives an
up close view of whale sharks.
OceanFest '85, now in its third year, is a part of
Oceans Miami 85, a nine day event sponsored by
the International Oceangraphic Foundation and
Planet Ocean. It ocuses on owur aqlatic

ODDITIES OF THE MOON NO. 1
by James E. Sullivan
,Proctor & Gamble is removing its moon-and-
stars trademark from its soap products. The
starry logo had been used for over 100 years -
now suddenly it must go. Why? The company
claims that people feel the symbol is satanic.
However, a nine year'old girl from Yarmouth,
MaiVne recently wrote to Proctor-& Gamble asking
"how the stars of the illustration could be seen
between the cusps of the crescent moon?".
Can a star ever be seen between the horns of
the moohi No, The horns or cusps of are the tips
of its visible crescent. This crescent is the edge of
the lighted 'prtior: of the moon's surface. The
circumference of the crescent continues around
to make a circle between.the horns which is the
outline of the; moons solid shape. There is no
empty.space between the horn of the moon-it is
,alrmoon, and no star farther away from the earth
than the moon is-and all stars are-could possible
be seen between the horns. Realizing this truth
the corporation had decided to phase out the
symbol, yet, it will retain the logo on letterheads
and publications to appease the company
executives and officers who still believe that the
stars can be seen through the moon.
Moon article 2 will focus on how the moon
causes tides and the directional bias of man's
brain fluids during a full moon, also what is

the edge of the Everglades. We were to pick up our
charter here Mr. and Mrs. Parker and family.
We would cruise north out into the Gulf of Mexico
and along Florida's west coast. The end of March
was a good time of the year to do this trip not
too hot, not too cold and generally an east-
southeast prevailing wind. We had just gotten the
vessel secure when we saw the Parkers, their son
and daughter walking down the dock.
We piped them aboard and the mate grabbed
his guitar and gave them a few versus of the
"Sloop John B." Then there were the
introductions, "Welcome aboard the Nautica, I am
Frank Papy your captain, licensed by the U.S.
Coast Guard and Panama, and this is the first
mate Bill Behze. Bill has 15 years sailing
experience and is a helluva chef. Please don't call
him a cook." "Mr. Mate, will you please help the
Parkers stow their gear and Mr. Parker, I will
give you a tour of the vessel. She is a 3 years
young Morgan 01 41 ketch. She has a diesel
engine, 4 headsails, a main and mizzen..."
As 8 bells struck (4 pm), the mate had finished
helping the Parker's stow their gear and took
them ashore to the state operated wildlife
museum. I grabbed 2-6 paks of beer and went
over to the fuel dock to bargain for some fresh
caught Red fish. Eventually everyone was back
aboard and cocktails were served-rum for the
mate and myself and white wine for the Parker's,.

The mate outdid himself as usual this evening
cooking up pan-fried Red fish, cornbread with
melted cheese and a big green salad.
The next morning after breakfast, we got a
couple of extra blocks of ice and were on our way
out of Flamingo, with a SW wind at about 14
knots. As we sailed toward Cape Sabel the mate
shouted, "Wow, look what's behind us." It was an
old bugeye ketch under full sail what a sight.
Everyone onboard got their cameras and started
clicking. We reached along side by side for about
an hour. Soon we had rounded Cape Sabel and as
we headed for the beach for lunch we watched the
bugeye disappear to the north.
At about 1 pm we dropped the sails and
anchored for lunch off one of the most beautiful
white sandy beaches you'll ever see anywhere.
The mate cooked up a spinach salad and some
crab bisque. Later he took the Parker's ashore in
the dinghy for some shelling and a swim. After
lunch, we picked up the hook and headed north
into the Little Shark River basin, a well protected
harbor. There were several boats in the harbor
including the big bugeye ketch we had sailed with
earlier in the day. They hailed us as we entered
the harbor and invited us to raft up. Mr. Parker
gave his ok, and soon with bumpers out and extra
springlines secured, we were rafted up with the -
"Blue Seas." The mate then preceded to plan
supper with the wife of the captain of the bugeye,
while I did some work on the fresh water pump.
SDinner was soon served aboard the"Blue Seas"
wine and spaghetti with white clam sauce for
12 people who had met only hours before who
were now laughing and joking like life long
friends. It must be the sea air, the wine or a
combination of .the two a very relaxing
It had been a late night, and I was the first one
up the next morning. I put the water on to boil,
sliced up some oranges, put a big-pan of bacon on
the stove and did my trick of waking people up by
their noses sprinkling some fresh ground coffee
on the hot stove. Within 15 minutes everyone was
up "What's that smell?"
Up on deck Mr. Parker had his binoculars out
watching the tremendous variety of birds in the
mangroves and trees nearby. The crew of the
bugeye were bottom fishing catching some
small snappers and grunts. Christine, the
Parker's daughter was being pulled up the mast of
the bugeye in a boson's chair for some aerial
shots. It was a very nice day-clear with an
easterly wind about 12 knots. After breakfast we
said good bye to our friends on the "Blue Seas,"
set the genoa and main to head around Cape
As we sailed alone Mr. Parker asked if the
family could participate more in the sailing. He
wanted them to learn as much about sailing and
sea life as was possible during the trip. I agreed.
We figured we'd skip Naples, sail all nightand sail
to Ft. Myers Beach, which we would reach about 4
am. The mateset up a watch schedule for the

GULF ISLANDS GETAWAY
by Janet Groene
Shoulder a duffel bag, set a course for Fort
Myers, Florida, climb aboard a boat of your
choice, and you're the skipper for a week's
windjamming. It doesn't matter if you've never
sailed before, or whether you know jib from jamb.
The whole idea behind the Adventure Sailing
Escape is to teach you a few sailing basics on the
beach. You learn the fine points while exploring
the islands of Pine Island Sound in a flotilla lead
by a professional captain. Follow the leader and,
if you have questions, the fleetmaster is instantly
available by radio.
It all begins at Tween Waters Inn on Captiva
; Island, where the fleet is headquartered, and
where a tone of roughing-it-easy is set for the
Week. Although you live aboard a sailboat which
could be as small and spartan as a 25-foot sloop,
the boats dock each night at a'fine resort. Almost
all meals are taken ashore in the area's best
restaurants: Captain Al's Cabbage Cay, Salty's
: Harborside, the outdoor barbecue at South Seas
Plantation, and the legendary Sundaybrunch at
Tween Waters Inn.
S The week begins with an optional sailing
school on Friday. The Escape itself begins at 2
p.m. Saturday, every other week throughout the
year. After yacht check-in at Tween Waters, the -
Sfleetmaster serves wine overlooking the Gulf and
Presents each woman with a hairpiece of fresh
flowers. Packages consist of 8 days and 7 nights
Although you'll sail rail-down by day, you'll
Sdock almost each night at a marina with hot
showers, coin laundry, newspapers, and
Telephones. South Seas Plantation has a hot tub,
Stennis, golf, swimming pools, live entertainment
S with dancing, and a good beach. It's all part of
this unusual package. Restaurant tabs, dockage,
fuel, ice, charts, and tips are included. If you get
hungry underway, there's a big basket of fruit in
Sthe galley, and the icebox is filled with juices and
sandwich fixings. You won't open your wallet all

There's a large choice of boats, from a
Commodore 26 monohull that sleeps four, to a
Gemini 31 catamaran that sleeps 8. The largest
monohull in the fleet is an O'Day 37; there is also a
STelstar 26 trimaran. Prices change with the
seasons, but average about $600 per person, four

When we anticipate an all night sail, we give .
the charterers a big lunch during the day and then
Bill makes an evening meal in his big black iron
pot, which sits on the stove all night long. This,
time he cooked up some ham, peas, rice and
onions in a delightful mixture. This arrangement
allows the watches to eat anytime they want:
without disturbing anyone else resting below.
After another beautiful sunset, especially
beautiful under sail, I went below for a couple
hours sleep, as the mate and Mr. Parker's
daughter stood watch.
At 9:30 when I relieved the mate, the wind was
freshening, so we dropped the genoa and bent on
the working jib. It cut our speed in half, but made
for a more comfortable sail. I put Mr. Parker's son
on the helm and had myself a steaming plate of
rice and ham and a mug of coffee. The stars were
out in full force and other than being a little on the
chilly side, it was a beautiful night for sailing. Mr.
and Mrs. Parker came on deck about 1 am to
enjoy the night sailing. I made them put on safety
harnesses over their foul weather gear since they
wanted to go up on the foredeck.

The route, led by bearded Dutch skipper
Jacques Roetfs, winds among islands rich in
history. Indian shell mounds can be seen on many
islands, and there are legends of treasure buried
during the days when pirates such as Jose
Gaspar swashbuckled through Boca Grande Pass
and hid out among the mangrove tangles.
Modern history began in the early 20th century,
when Useppa Island became a fashionable
fishing camp for the likes of magnate Baron
Collier. Among his guests were Teddy Roosevelt,
the Rothschilds, and mystery writer Mary
Roberts Rinehart-whose son built a home on
neighboring Cabbage Key in the 1920's. The
marina there is one of the flotilla's favorite stops.
Sailors play darts, observe tradition by taping a
dolar bill to the walls, then sit down to a seafood
dinner on what was once the Roberts' porch.
Bicycles are supplied to explore historic Boca
Grande. A daylight visit .is made to uninhabited
Chino Island,- and. one night may be spent at
anchor at remote, seaswept Johnson Shoals.
Here, a bonfire is built for a steak cookout while
flotilla members gather seashells. Then its back
to civilization, and the Fleetmaster's Farewell
Dinner where souvenir charts are given to each
Flotilla sailing is a fairly new concept, and is
about the only way an inexperienced sailing
family can rent a boat without a paid captain.
Even old salts, however, will relish the idea of
sailing by day, then dining and hobnobbing in
luxury ashore before going back aboard to be
rocked asleep. Lush islands, fine dining, faithful
winds, and a congenial fleetmaster add up to
salty good fun for novices and experienced

Insider tip: air conditioners, available at $30

Boats have dockside electricity every night
except one. In cold weather, electric heaters are
shelling and to my surprise Mr. Parker and his
son volunteered to help the mate and myself
scrub down the Nautica. With a little Jimmy
Buffet music and all the extra help, we seemed to
get the job done in no time at all. And to top it all
off, the ladies were soon back from the beach and
fixed us.all a great lunch. That afternoon, the
Parkers went ashore and I took a nap in my
hammock on deck. That night we all went out for
supper at the marina restaurant. Mr. Parker
announced that the next day he would be playing
golf with some people he had met during the day
and that the ladies would spend the day at the
The mate and I always look kindly on a lay day
and while the Parkers were off doing their thing,
we found our own things to do- like helping a
novice racer tune his rigging. The reward for
offering this kindly hand was five pounds of fresh
The Parkers were soon back aboard with five
guests from the beach and golf course. I made
some of the guests take off their hard shoes. A
couple of them seemed a little disturbed at first,
but got over it. We had cocktails shrimp with dip
and Bill and I entertained them with guitar, conga
drums and rhythm instruments for everyone else-
moraccas, sticks, etc. Then out to dinner again. A
table for 12 with Mr. Parker at the head of the
table. Many toasts were made to the beautiful
islands, the Nautica and her crew.
The next day was clear, with the wind very light
out of the southeast. Everyone was up by nine-
some a little under the weather. So we decided to
take it easy and motor up to Cabbage Key, a
beautiful little island with no access by land.
There is a small bar and restaurant there and a lot
of history. The big building was once the home of
Mary Rinehart, a famous writer of mystery
novels. Another interesting place to visit in the
area is Usppa Island, also not accessible by land.
It has about 20 private homes and a club. In order
to go ashore, you must be a member or make
arrangements through the South Seas Plantation.
After touring around Cabbage Key, it was about
2:30,the wind was picking up out of the northeast,
.,so we decided,to sail, up into Charlotte Harbor -
again porpoises on the bow. We had the main and
genoa up and the Nautica was cutting along
nicely. Around 5:30 we dropped sail and anchored
off Cape Hase-12 miles up Charlotte Harbor.
Another super sunset, as the mate rigged up the
bar-b-que grill on the stern. Our meal for the
evening was lamb shisk kabob and rice. Mr.
Parker broke out two nice bottles of wine and we
all settled down for another of the mate's feasts. It
was a quiet night with a lot of stars until about 3
am when a couple of heavy rain squalls came
through. The mate and I put out a second anchor
and kept watch until dawn.
Mr. Parker's family had some kind of
connection with the circus industry and he
mentioned the day before that he wanted to get
into Sarasota to see some friends and for the kids
to get to a couple of famous museums in the
Sarasota area. So at about 6 am we got both
anchors up and shoved off for Sarasota with the
winds out of the east at about 18 to 20 knots.
Running out of Boca Grande Channel with main
and working jib, we saw the Gulf had quite chop
so we ran as close to shore as possible keeping
out of the heavy swells. Lunch that day was
stuffed pepperand rolaids. At about 1 pm we left
The mate came up on deck around 2 am with the
loom of Ft. Myers Beach in sight. I stayed up
another couple of hours and at about 4:30 am I
helped the mate drop the sails and anchor. We put
out two anchors for good. measure. and then
turned in :for a well deserved- rest.
The mate and I were up at about 10:30. And as
the Parker's slept, we upped anchor and motored
into Pine Island Sound behind the beautiful
beaches of Sanibel and Captiva Islands. We could
have sailed, but the batteries needed charging
and the mate wanted to get brunch ready for our
charterers. As we motored through the Sound
with the Parkers eating brunch in the cockpit, the
mate shouted "porpoises on the bovw There were
about a dozen of them playing around the boat for
about 10 minute. Everyone forgot about brunch,
went for their cameras and started clicking.
Further up the Sound, we soon arrived at the
South Seas Plantation Marina, one of my
favorites, and a place I thought the Parkers would
really like. It's a fancy marina at the north end of
Captiva island with all kinds of facilities and
great beaches for swimming and shelling nearby.
Once docked, Mrs. Parker and her daughter went
the Gulf through New Pass and headed for Marina
Jacks right in downtown Sarasota. The Parkers
were soon off to see the sights and we didn't see
them again until next morning.
After breakfast at the marina restaurant, we
headed for our last destination, Passe Grille
Channel, just north of Tampa Bay. With clear
skies, we shoved off about 10:30 with the wind out
of the southeast at about 8 knots. This was the
last day of the trip and since we had the right
wind, the mate and I figured we'd give the Parkers
a real thrill and break out the spinnaker. It's an
old used sail, too big for the boat, but you'd never
know it to look at it. Its red with a black and white
maltese cross in the center. She really had us
going along nicely. Everyone was impressed and
clicking away with their cameras. We made quite
a sight passing Anna Maria Island, a famous
fishing spot. A couple of small runabouts came by
for a closer look.
The mate,being the ham he isflagged one
over, took Mr. Parker's camera, got into their boat
and took some shots of the Nautica with the
spinnaker flying. It was a little more difficult
getting him back on board underway, but he
made it ok with the camera intact. Soon after his
boarding. I picked up the large,pink hotel I use as
a landmark to find the Passe Grille Channel.
Taking the spinnaker down was a team effort and
the Parkers really did help. There was a small
sailboat race going on right rear the channel
entrance so it was a duck and dodge experience
on the way in. We were headed for theTerraVerde
Marina on Terra Verde Island just south of St.
Petersburg. As we approached the marina, we
had a straight shot at the dock, so I stood
alongside of Mr. Parker, directing him, and he
brought her in just fine. We spread the spinnaker
out on the lawn to dry and went for a farewell
supper and many toasts to a great crewed yacht
vacation on FI orida's west coast.

REFRIGERATION AND AIR
CONDITIONING FROM THE
00000WWWEEEEEE, WHAT WON'T THEY
THINK OF NEXT! by B. Wheatley
WORKAHOLIC, is the best word to describe him.
Him is Charles Lee. The man behind the machine.
The system is a basic belt drive compressor,
a electric drive motor, water pump, cupro-nickel,
cond. coil, stainless steel holding plates (for the
refrigeration side) and one or more air handlers
(for the A/C side) and all the needed piping to
make it work. Should it work? Yes! The system is
built of well proven parts. The drive motor is
ac/dc and works on a very wide range of
voltages. The compressor is of the type that has
been arovid for many years and since Charlie
has had the foresight to install a suction
accumulator to protect the internal valves, I don't
see why the compressor wouldn't last a good ten
years or more. Since the motor and compressor
are connected by two drive belts instead of just
one, it should be able to run long and hard with
little maintenance. The water coil is of cupro-
nickel so it also should last and last: Those are
the "failure prone" parts of any system. The rest
of the unit is also built of high quality
components. All in all, it seems to be well thought
This wonderful contraption will work on just
about any type of yacht, but it is most useful on a
sail boat, especially if you are lacking a
generator. You see, when you are at dock, the unit

runs off the shore power. Then, if you ever leave
the dock, and still want the use of the equipment,
you must have a VERY LONG extention cord. Or a
generator. This little inconvenience bothered
ole' Charlie so bad that he came up with a
solution. He installs a high voltage alternator on
your engine. Then you don't need the extention
cord or the generator. If you already have a
generator, and it goes dead as it usually does
when you need it, you are still covered by the
altenator. And if you are real nice to Charlie, he
can even wire it up in such a way as to give you
1250 watts of power to run just about anything
else you need as in a water heater, micro-wave,
any many other things. So it can do just about
anything your generator can do, so it you don't
have a generator, and were planning to get one,
just think of all the money you can save, not to
mention the space and weight.
Another factor is cost. As you know, cost is
relative. What we think is excessive, another man
may pay that much in a week in bar tabs. If you
are starting out with a bare boat, this may cost
less that 1 ref. system and 2 A/C systems

together. But if your boat is already equipped, and
.you are replacing, it may not be worth it.
Only you know what you want and your
financial strength. If you figure in the long life of
the unit, and what you will save in repairs
because you have a unit that does the work of 3
units, it may well be worth the initial cost. But
when you buy the unit, you get more than just a
hunk of steel. You get a piece of Charles Lee. You
see, he designed it, he built it, and most likely
installed it. He runs the show and does it right the
first time. If you call some name brand company
that sells equipment built by $4.00 an hr.
assembly line flunkies, you get what you pay for.
If you think that the $7.00 an hr. man that they
send out to install the equipment will take the
time and care that Charlie will, well, it is

While trolling with my twin engine boat, one
engine cut out. Turning the switch on would start
the engine but when released the engine would
cut our again. I jumped the switch on the panel
and ran the engine home. Installed a brand new
switch but have some trouble. Conflicting ideas
come from different people. What causes that
Usually a defective resistor is the cause of that
particular problem. When you start your motor
the resistor is eliminated by a direct line or wire to
the coil. Once the engine starts the resistor circuit
takes over when the key is released from the
starting circuit. These lines are installed to give
you full voltage of hot starts.

My sailboat diesel runs swell for about an hour
or so and then starts to slow up and run
eratically. I put in a new fuelfilter and air filter
running the motor for about three hours. All fine.
Next morning, I took the boat out and had some
trouble with the engine. Filters wer clean and I
watched the engine and ran it again for hours
with no problem. What gives?
When you ran your engine without any problem
your hatches were open so that you could see
the engine. I really think your engine is starving
for air and when you close your engine
compartment you are sealing out all air. You must
have adequate ventilation or a vent bringing air
down to your air intake. Try running the engine
with the hatches open to check this out.
My engine sounds like a bag of bolt rattling.
After it warms up the noises slowly subside and
the engine runs quiet. Next time out same noises.
Any fix for this?
I don't know how old your engine is and how
often you change your oil and filter, but here
goes. First drain your oil and flush the engine with
a good flushing oil. Drain flush oil and install a
new filter and add a good grade of oil in the proper
viscosity for the age and hours on your engine.
Add a quart of Ristone or Marvel instead of a
quart of oil to free up the valves and lifters to help
clean them from sludge or varnish, run engine for
approximately 25 hours under normal use change
oil and filter again, if engine is still knocking or
rattling, mechanical work is required.

MARINE TRAFFIC BROWARD
COUNTY FLOTILLA PLAN-1985
IN THE EVENT of a hurricane emergency, the
Broward County Sheritt's Office will coordinate
the efforts of all municipal Marine Units in the
movement of marine traffic throughout the
waterways in Broward County. This
coordination will commence at the beginning of
a Hurricane Watch and terminate three and a
half (3-1/2) hours after the official order to
Evacuate the coastal areas by the County
1 TO MINIMIZE the number of bridge openings
necessary to accommodate marine traffic
traveling on Broward County waterways seeking
safe harbor, the following will apply.
1. Should boat traffic increase to a level
requiring excessive bridge openings, a flotilla
movement program will be implemented. No
specific rime sequences will be utilized in
moving flotillas, but movement will be
governed by the number of boats seeking to
proceed upriver. Small boats able to proceed
without bridge openings need not wait for a
2. The Fort Lauderdale Police Department's
Marine Patrol will be deployed in the
Intracoastal Waterway north and south of New
River to supervise and assist formation of
flotillas. Vessels proceeding north to the New
River will form flotillas in the Pier 66 area, and
vessels proceeding south to the New River will
form flotillas in the Bahia Mar area. As the
situation dictates, Fort Lauderdale Police Boats
will escort flotillas inland or send them
independently in groups.

WEEK JUNE 2-8
President Reagan has proclaimed June 2-8, 1985
Safe Boating Week. This year's theme
emphasizes the dangers of combining alcohol
consumption with operating a boat. The president
advised all boaters to wear personal flotation
devices while on the water, citing U.S. Coast
Guard statistics which state that 75 percent of
those who died in boating accidents last year
might have been saved had they worn a PFD, and
warned that the use of alcohol and other
intoxicating substances is a major factor in
boating accidents and fatalities.

NATIONAL SAFE BOATING WEEK
The United States Congress, recognizing the importance of boating as a
recreational activity and the need to encourage safe enjoyment of our Nation's
waters, has declared, and the President has proclaimed, the week starting on the
first Sunday in June as National Safe Boating Week. This offers us, as boaters, a
unique opportunity to bring together the many different boating groups and
interests and focuses attention on the importance for safety and courtesy in
boating. It not only enhances enjoyment of our Nation's waters, but by placing the
emphasis on the principles of safe boating, reduces boating accidents and their
THROUGH JUNE 9th
In the United States alone about 65,000,000 people take to the water in the many
and varied forms of boating every year. Add to this the many thousands of
Canadians with whom we share many waters and the enjoyment of boating, and
the number of boaters become truly impressive. Furthermore, this number grows
by about one million new boaters every year. The number of boaters grows, but the
amount of available water remains the same. It, therefore, becomes increasingly
important that operators know and follow the principles of safe boating.
That is Why, National Safe Boating Week.

CARE AND TREATMENT OF
by Donna Hessmann, R.N.
Would you know what to do to help someone
who has been burned? Test your knowledge of
burn care. Some answers may surprise you.
1. Burns can be caused from flames,
chemicals, electricity, radiation or friction.
True/False? Answer: This is true. Burns destroy
skin and skin is the organ that protects the body
from infection, controls fluid balance, and body
temperature. Some burns can destroy all tissue
from the skin to the bone.
2. First and foremost, remove the burn victim
from further danger and STOP THE BURNING.
True/False? True. STOP THE BURNING. If the eyes
are burned flush with water for 30 minutes then
close the lids and cover with eye patches. Get
medical attention immediately. Flush chemical
burns with copious amounts of water. Powered
chemicals should be brushed from the skin since
adding water may generate more heat and make
the burn worse. Cut clothing away from the burn
area with scissors and remove any jewelry.
3. If the burn is severe, it will bleed profusely
and the victim-will become unconscious.
True/False? This false. Burns do not bleed or
cause unconsciousness. If the burn victim is
bleeding or unconscious he has sustained other
injuries that also need immediate attention.
4. The seriousness of a burn depends on one
factor which is the "Degree" of the burn.
True/False? This is false. Other important factors
that determine the seriousness of the burn are the
amount of body surface burned and the age of the
victim. Burns on children or the elderly are more
serious. Also particular areas burned such as the
~i~c t hidfl's or genitalia will -present special
problemss -- -
5. Sunburn is a type of first degree burn.
True/False? This is true. A first degree burn is
red, dry, and may have small scattered blisters.
Pain and tenderness can occur but healing will
occur in 3-5 days. Cool compresses may ease the
pain. Aloe cream can be used to soothe and heal
6. A second degree burn is red with thick
walled blisters, shows swelling with a firm or
leathery feeling to the burn area. True/False?
This is true. A second degree burn is very painful.
If the arms or legs are burned keep them elevated
to reduce swelling. NEVER BREAK THE BLISTERS.
The blister serves as an ideal, naturally sterile,
dressing for the burn. Cover lightly with a sterile
dressing and seek medical help.
7. A third degree burn is waxy white, brown, or
black with much swelling. True/False? This is
true. There is an insensitivity to pain because the
nerve endings are destroyed. along with the
destruction of skin, muscle and bone tissue. Skin
grafting is usually necessary. When a person is.
severely burned, metabolic changes and loss of
the skins protective function can cause the body
temperature to drop dramatically. Cover the
victim with a clean sheet or towel, or whatever is
available. This will help guard against wound
contamination and pain caused by air currents.
Call for medical help.
8. Apply ice to all burns. True/False? False. Do
not apply ice to all burns Ice can cause further
tissue death and may cause a serious drop in
Remember, stop the burning, cut away the
clothing and evaluate the burns. Shave any hair
from around the burn area since hair will harbor
infection. You can clean the burn with a mild
soap, apply burn cream and cover with a sterile
dressing. If the hands are burned, wrap each
finger individually. Never lettwo burned surfaces
touch each other. Silvadene burn cream is an
effective antibacterial agent. It is painless on
application effective against many types of
bacteria and is water soluable. Add this to your
first aid kit along with sterile gloves and
dressings and stay on the "safe side."
As always, an ounce of prevention is worth a
pound of cure.

SOUTH FLORIDA FISHING
CLASSIC JULY 12 & 13
The South Florida Fishing Classic is on the
lookout for conservation-minded individuals.
The tournament with the aim of providing funds
for the improvement of the saltwater
environment is scheduled for July 12 and 13.
Running simultaneously out of four inlets: Palm
Beach, Pompano Beach, Fort Lauderdale and
Miami, anglers will have the opportunity to
choose their fishing grounds. It has the potential
of becoming the largest saltwater fishing
tournament ever to be held in South Florida.
Based on 240 boats, a total of $60,000 is
guaranteed to the anglers and the environment.
$30,000 consisting of three top prizes of $10,000
each will be awarded to the angler catching the
heaviest king, dolphin and wahoo. The other
$30,000 will go towards the conservation efforts
of the four hosting inlets. "We are considering
offering extra lucrative prize categories if we get
500 or more entries," says Pat Carr, tournament
Tournament expenses are being underwritten
by six major marine sponsors: Ande Line,
Lowrance Electronics, Mariner Outboards,
MerCruiser, Saltwater Sportsman magazine and
Wellcraft Marine Corp. so that awards can be
made from the entry fees.
The entry fee per boat is $250.00. This is a unique
opportunity to join the tournament sponsors and
help them in their conservation efforts to assure
that there wilt always be plenty of "fish for your

NEW I.G.F.A. RECORD WAITS
by Bill Rhodes
The hot African Pompano spot that was
featured in the last edition of the Waterfront News
produced a potential Women's World Record for
that species. Lynn Butler, wife of the famous
"African" guide featured in the article, caught a32
pounder on 30 pound class line. A live pinfish was
used for bait. A great catch considering the
amount of hungry sharks thatcruise the area.
Congratulations to Lynn.
In other action reported, Bill Aman of
Hollywood had a good outing off Palm Beach
recently. One sail was released and soon after
another was hooked by one of Aman's crew.
While Bill gave chase slowly at idle speed he kept
one eye on the chart recorder.A gradual slope
eventually led to some humplike structures on the
bottom. Some fish were marked just off the
humps. Willie put a whole squid on four ounce jig
and lowered it down on twenty pound tackle. An
immediate strike was in order. After tug-of-war
for 15 minutes or so a nice 28 pound Warsaw
Grouper was in the box. During the battle the sail
was lost due to a pulled hook-a real heartbreaker.
Soon after, some nice Dolphin appeared. Four
or five were boated as groceries including
an eleven pounder caught on four pound test

spinning tackle. Others were released.
Fishing along the eighty foot'ledge' in that area
provides great Amberjack and Jack Crevalle
action in April and May. This provided unlimited
hook-ups throughout the afternoon for Aman's
crew. Deep jigging with light to medium tackle
you have a great chance to catch a large fish on
light line. Get ready for a long battle if you do
More than once, I've noted schools of large
Blue fish swimming among the jacks closerto the
surface. These predators are usually more than
eager to strike any offering. They are great fun on
light tackle also.
Bonita, Tuna and Wahoo swim these waters too
and are plenty hungry. The weather is getting
perfect! Go get 'em.
The Hollywood Sportfishing Club would like to
thank "Big Al" Grodsky for speaking at the April
bi-monthly meeting. There was a question and
answer session following the talk on engine
maintainence and safety regulation. An
informative program-Thank you Big Al.

The First Annual Sailboat Fishing Tournament
broke new ground, allowing sailors and anglers
to combine resources and create a new sport.
Participants, like Nem and Bonny Hausman, not
only sailed away with a twenty-three pound
dolphin, but carried with them a sense of
enthusiasm and feeling of discovery that

1,000 American babies annually, according to Dr.
Sandra C. Grady (with the NF Foundation in this
area), and is twice as common as muscular
dystrophy. One hundred thousand human beings
suffer from NF in this country; one to two
thousand Broward Countians are among them.

the Harvest salad bar. You'll find the usual range
of produce, lettuces, tomatoes, cheeses, etc. Less
