the show had been promoted in a mediocre

The article in question goes beyond mei
inaccuracy and distortion; however,it portrays a
underlying lack of regard for integrity i

NEW RIVER RAFT RACE
ON FOR SEPT. 8th
The Fort Lauderdale JayCees have announced
that the eighth annual New River Raft Race will
take place Sunday, September 8th, 1985. KISS-FM
and Budweiser will co-sponsor the event which
will benefit CerebralPalsy this year, according to
Kim Mesmore, chairperson of the raft race.
The New River Raft Race will begin and end again
this year at the Seventh Avenue boat ramps, just
up the New River from the Marshall Memorial
Bridge in Fort Lauderdale. The course of the race
will be unaltered from last year.with the turn
around point being west of the Intracoastal
Waterway on the New River, over three miles
back and forth. The Coast Guard will close the
river to navigation for the duration of the race
(around two hours) as it has in the past years.
In past' years individuals, civic groups,
companies and Boy Scout Troops have
participated in the raft race in kayaks, canoes,
septic tanks and Volkswagons. Prizes are given
not only to the best times in various craft classes
but also for original designs and team spirit.

SCHOOL FOR CO-PILOTS
AMERICAN FLYERS, a multi-state corporation
that has been providing pilot training since 1939,
and the FXE chapter of the FLORIDA AERO CLUB.
an organization of pilots and aviation enthusiasts,
have joined forces to provide free of charge an
aviation ground school for co-pilots.
Based on the concept that spouses and friends
who fly regularly with private pilots would enjoy
the experience more if they were active
participants rather than just passengers, the two
groups have put together a program designed to
teach the co-pilot everything needed to become a
functioning member of the airplane crew. The
result is not only enhanced enjoyment, but a
considerable improvement in safety because of
the addition of two eyes and mind handling the
multitude of tasks required in a crowded sky.
The multi-week program will begin July 10, 1985
at the AMERICAN FLYERS facility located at
Building 4, 5500 N.W. 21st Terrace, Executive
Airport, Fort Lauderdale, Florida at 7:00 P.M. and
will teach all aspects of aviation from
aerodynamics and maintenance to navigation
Both Albert Peacock, the local aeroclub
president, Paul Wenz, the Assistant Director of
American Flyers believe the program addresses a
long neglected segment of the aviation
community, the general aviation co-pilot. Both
gentlemen believe the joint effort offers to the co-
pilot a unique opportunity to learn in an
atmosphere usually reserved for professional
pilots. However a fear of the technical should not
deter potential students, as both men quickly add
that the emphasis will be on making learning a

"THE FOUR PUNCHES OF A
by Bill Lange
While others in this issue of Waterfront News
suggest ways to protect your vessel I'd like to
emphasize the components of a hurricane which
you must handle. When such a super-storm
comes close to southeast Florida you face a
You'll have to handle 1) Strong and gusty
winds, 2) exceptionally high tides, 3) torrential
rains, 4) perhaps a storm surge.
No vessel operator need be surprised for the
National Weather Service will report each
tropical disturbance, frequently several days
before the NOAA Hurricane Center (Coral Gables,
Florida) starts to issue advisories. You can thus
be alert for the first word that a storm has formed,
even a thousand or more miles distant, and you
can plot its movement.
When winds of 55 to 73 miles per hour occur the
storm is assigned a name. Seas under the storm
are now dangerous, wave heights can be great
and sometimes from conflicting directions. Inlets
will be non-navigable.
A hurricane is approximately round, from 300
to 600 miles in diameter, visible as a cloud
formation in which the winds are
counterclockwise. These swirl about the extreme
depression, or low, which has a generally
cloudless and tranquil core or eye at its center;
somewhat more elliptical than round. 200 mile per
hour winds are possible.
The tye, a counterclockwise vortex, may be 3
to 40 miles in diameter. Thus if a hurricane eye
passes over you the winds first hit you from one
direction, then drop to zero in.a usually clear and
cloudless sky. Suddenly the winds hit you full
force from the opposite direction as you are again
under the storm. That "rabbit punch" strikes so
quickly that you have no time to jump back into a
protected place. You'll be swept away.
At sustained surface winds of 74 miles per hour
the weather system is categorized as a hurricane
and is described every few hours by NOAA. Ship
reports, ground stations, radar and satellite
photos provide the details of the hurricane's life.
Tracker aircraft repeatedly pass through the
ever-changing monster to obtain exact
barometric readings, winds, location, speed of
movement, and current direction of movement.
The closest possible watch is kept on these
factors. For reasons that are not scientifically
clear there can be unforeseen variations. The
probable error of a track forecast may be 100 or
so miles if you guess the landfall point 24 hours
From the viewpoint of your vessel's survival
the center point of landfall, and the direction of
movement a few hours before then, make a major
difference in the degree of storm impact. When,
where and what will it be? Skippers of our area
are constrained to make their decision on vessel
location before then since the nature of our inland
waterways and the density of coastal population
necessitate local government controls early on.
A hurricane usually moves at anywhere from 10
to 20 miles per hour. NOAA reports the
coordinates of the eye and you must plot the
track. The majority make a sort of parabola and
gradually curve north. But the curve is not closely
predictable -- nor is the speed.
The NOAA advisories are issued frequently,
day and night, and often become more precise as
to intensity. There are five categories of
hurricane strength--based on the maximum
.--........ ........... ..

steady winds, the center pressure, and the storm
Category 1 winds 74-95 mph; 2 has 96-110; 3 has
111-130; 4 has 131-155; 5 has 155 upward.
Advisories will be heard on your VHF weather
channel, and on many radio stations which are
part of the Broward County Warning System, on
many TV stations and cable TV weather channels.
A hurricane causes long swell waves and you
will note them because of the unusually slow
rhythm of 2 to 5 crests per minute. These travel as
fast as 1000 miles per day. Since the average
hurricane movement is only 330 miles per day
they are very far ahead; their rhythm and
strength signal the strength of the hurricane
The maximum steady winds extend outward
from the rim of the eye about 20 to 30 miles. The
most dangerous sector of the entire hurricane
area is the right front and right of the direction of
movement. Full strength winds can be as far as
100 miles ahead of the center, and lesser
destructive winds out to 250 miles.
Gusts may exceed the storm wind by 25 to 50%.
These create wrenching and bending movement.
The rapid increases in wind strength exert a force
which actually increases with the square of the
wind speed. The key to damage control is
reenforcing weak spots. Hurricanes can also
spawn tornadoes which generate in a wall of
advancing thunderstorms, possibly hidden.
Lightning is as usual a danger.
Even if a hurricane is not a direct threat to you
its proximity may cause dangerously high water.
Abnormal tides near and to the right of the center
track occur a considerable distance ahead. Do
not confuse these with the surge which has yet to
Waves and swell generated by the hurricane
are highest in the direction of its movement and
the right quadrant. Wave height is a function of
wind speed and duration. Tables are shown in
"Weather for the Mariner" (Naval Institute Press)
by Admiral Wm. J. Kotsch. Even a 50 knot wind
creates waves of tremendous impact, for a cubic
yard of water weighs 3/4 of a ton.
Torrential rains can be dumped by a hurricane.
20 inches of rain in 24 hours has become 88 inches
in a four day period when there was a very slow
Surge is the worst hurricane killer. It is a
general rise in the sea level due to the abnormally
low barometric pressure of the eye and the strong
vertical winds of the vortex. A foot or more of
ocean surface rise creates a water dome as much
as 50 miles in diameter. When this dome of water
is driven over shallows it is forced to well up and
can become asahigh as 20 feet or more. It can be a
rapid rise in a matter of minutes. The surge may
be a few hours ahead of the eye but is long after
the swell discussed previously. The wind-driven
waves are on top of this and travel at about half
the speed of the wind. Water pressure can be
about 10,000 pounds per square foot. -
The surge is most dangerous for about 50 miles
from the eye in the quadrant where the winds
blow toward shore.
Of the four dimensions your vessel must fight
during a hurricane the surge is a clincher and
depends most on whether you get a direct hit of
the eye or just a fringe, and how much that water
dome is broken by high ground. The surge height
will drop until the dome has moved away. A
general estimate of surge height by category of
hurricane is Category 1: 4-5 feet, 2: 6 8 feet, 3:
9 -12 feet.
You'll have to estimate the surge for your own
location. Your County Emergency Preparedness
Office has figures for the probable height along
each portion of shoreline, assuming a direct hit
by a specified category of hurricane.
For example. A Category 1 might occur at high
tide. To the Mean Sea Level add an abnormal tide
of maybe 3 feet, then add the stated surge of
maybe 5 feet, and then add 50% of an estimated
maximum wave height. The total water height is a
Bilge pumps, batteries, hatches, battens,
above deck items, anchors, lines, cleats, piling
rigging, docks, seawalls and trailers ashore have
to be adequate.
The time for this is now, since the "hurricane
watch" may not give you 36 hours, and the high
probability of landfall indicated by the
succeeding "hurricane warning" means maybe 24
hours to go ---- and less than that before bridges
are locked down. ''' "'-' "
July 15 -Rugust 15, 1985
Boat owners who are on the coast as a
hurricane is approaching will receive ample
warning through the advisories and bulletins of
the National Weather Service. All boats, no
matter what their size, should have some sort of
radio aboard even if it is only a small transistor
set capable of receiving commercial
broadcasting stations. In this way the boat owner
can remain aware of general weather conditions.
At the first indication of possible danger the
boater should return to shore. Next, he should
decide what to do with the boat to ensure that it
will survive the storm undamaged.
There are a number of actions the boater can
take. Facilities and time permitting, large boats
should be put in dry storage. If the boat is
trailerable it should be pulled out of the water at a
ramp and moved out of the area at the same time
the boater is moving inland to a safer location.
Should a boat owner find himself without
sufficient time to get his boat out of the water,
these suggestions by Talbot F. Hamlin will help.
They appeared in an article entitled "When You
Get Caught-Things That Will Help in Squall or
Hurricane" published in Yachting, October, 1955.
1. Know a good hole and go there in time.
2. Be sure you have on board- adequate
anchors, enough rope (at least one should be 250
feet or longer), and plenty of docking lines of
sufficient length and diameter.
3. Keep your gasoline tanks full and your
engine in good running condition at all times. You
don't know when a sudden emergency may make
4. If you are at a pier, get on the lee side, be
careful of your docking lines, and, in the case of
hurricanes, judge if the piles are high enough.
If not, leave the pier and anchor in the safest place
you can find (or, if you have to, run free).
5. Get your engine running when emergency
threatens. Then leave it out of gear or put it in
gear, as conditions indicate.
6. Keep your mooring slack, but take care not
to override it. If you are using power when at
anchor, be careful not to have so much slack in
the anchor rode as to create a danger of fouling it
in your propeller.
7. Have plenty of chafing gear, and use it.
With these precautions a modern vessel can
face squalls and gales confidently with a good
promise of coming through undamaged, and with
crew tired, perhaps, but alive and well.
If a boat has been removed from the water on
its trailer but will not be hauled away there are
some precautions which might be followed. The
boat should be covered with a canvas so that it
will not fill with rain water. Whether it is covered
or not, the plug should be pulled to ensure that
any water will drain from the interior. Both boat
and trailer may be secured with lines to some
substantial object to prevent movement by the
In the case of a small boat which must be left
out of doors during a storm it is best to move it to
high ground and turn it bottom up. It should be
secured to solid objects or, if there are none at
hand, metal rods can be driven into the ground
and the boat tied to them.
If the owner of a larger boat finds himself in a
crowded anchorage he may wishto utilize a three
anchor mooring system. This consists of three
lightweight anchors placed equidistant from each
other around a center point and 120 degrees
apart. The anchors are bridled to a common
center. A chain and pennant from that center
provide a point to which the boat with a short
rode can be tied up. The boat is free to swing
through a small circle and, no matter what the
direction of the wind, there will always be one or
two anchors to windward holding it. This system
has proven to be very effective under severe
Above all, once a boat has been moored as
securely as possible, the boat owner should leave
it and not attempt to return to it until after the
wind and waves have subsided.

THE FLOTILLA PLAN: FACT &
Dave lives aboard a friend's 41' sailing yacht on
a canal just off the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort
Lauderdale. Only Birch State Park stands
between his dock and the Atlantic Ocean. Dave
arrived in south Florida from Boston two and one-
half years ago. He has not experienced a
hurricane before and doesn't know exactly what
to do with his friend's sailboat or himself for that
matter in the event of one. Should he stay on
board and ride it out? Should Dave take the boat
up the New River in search of a safe harbor? (He's
heard of some sort of "Flotilla plan".) The Boat's
owner has advised Dave to secure the boat, leave
it, and worry about his personal safety.
There are many people.in Dave's boat, so to
,speak. Broward County boats over 30,000 boats
in its waters and that is about how many "old
timers" there are left here who can remember
when "King" directly hit the area in 1950. Most of
us are hurricane rookies.
The Flotilla Plan. Flo' Moca, education director
of Broward County's Emergency Preparedness
Division, cautions that the "Flotilla Plan" was not
devised for the boater's convenience but
rather to minimize the number of bridge openings
required to accommodate marine traffic traveling
on Broward County's waterways seeking safe
harbor during periods of impending hurricane
conditions or other disasters. Moca urges
boaters to make pre-arrangements for secure
docking up the river with a boat yard or water-
front property owner. Marine Patrol officials will
manage Broward's "wet streets" to make
maximum use of waterway capacity and to
expedite safe escape from hurricane hazards.
Being in a flotilla does not offer the boater safe
harbor up the river. The prudent boater will have
a pre arranged slip waiting for him and his vessel
up river. There are not many available slips,
particularly during a panic such as a hurricane
So, if Dave is going to take his sailboat up the
river in a flotilla he'd better have a slip waiting for
him. Or he should moor the boat securely and
properly at it's present dock and find safe harbor
for his person. Attempting to ride it out is not
advised by experts. As one insuranceman said,
"You can replace a boat but not a human life".

SECOND ANNUAL SAILBOAT
The North Broward Kiwanis Club has
announced that it will sponsor the Second Annual
Sailboat Fishing Tournament scheduled for
Saturday, November16, 1985. This year's event
will again benefit the Neurofibromatosis
Foundation of Florida. The Hollywood

hull Association are co-sponsors of this year's
tournament to take place off Broward County's
coast. Awards and prizes will be given for several
fish species and types of sailing craft, reports
tournament chairperson, Patrick O'Donnell.
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
prevailed that day last November as sailor

NF or Elephantman's Disease affects at least
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.
Sailors and anglers interested in participating
in the Second Annual Sailboat Fishing
Tournament, organizations and groups wanting
to get involved in the tournament and helping NF,

I HEARD THEY ARE TEARING
OLD BOOT KEY MARINA DOWN
By Frank Papy
I have sailed into many ports in my lifetime and
it's rare to visit a place where you feel the people
really belong there by their philosophy and
appearance. All the people around Boot Key
Marina (in the Florida Keys) look like John
Huston, the movie producer, had picked them out
to play the many characters who hung around the
old fish house marina and shrimp docks.
In the late afternoon breeze about thirty times
in the last ten years I have come drifting into the
Boot Key Marina under sail on the sloop
"Nautica". I drop the main and jib and coast up to
the fuel dock. I tie up and step off and sit down
under the great wooden roof built over the large
dock that always had chairs and tables scattered
about with maybe a half dozen folks sitting
around having a cool one. My charter passengers
would be straightening out on the deck and trying
to figure out what is going on in this very laid
back atmosphere. Then they come and join in the
conversation and enjoy the breeze that blew
under this big pavilion. Eventually the dock
master comes along and gives me a ship
assignment. Several times my charterers are so
engrossed with the atmosphere and their new
found friends I have to borrow a couple of the
locals to help me move the boat over to my
assigned berth. Everyone was always very
There were quite a few liveaboards who would
say, "If you are going to B.B.Q. use my grill." "it's
much easier than digging yours out." "Just make
sure that you clean it good when you finish." You
would go to use it and it looked as if it hadn't been
cleaned in months. So we used it and the
charterers cleaned it good and the next day the
guy would give us some fish. My charterers
would say, "Why are you doing this?" And the old
timers would say, "Well hell!" "For cleaning my
grill so nice!!"
We would also walk over to the old fish house
and get supper and a few beers. If we bought
some fish the charterers would usually haggle
about the price over a dozen fish and when we
would get back to the boat we would find out that
he put 15 in the bag instead of a dozen. This was
just an example of some of the ways they seemed
to keep us entertained.
Sometimes they had dinghy races on Sundays
up and down in front of the marina. Everybody
who had a dinghy in the area seemed to show up.
If it didn't have a sailing rig up they'd improvise
one for the event. Usually there were about fifteen
or twenty entries. It was the most unorganized
informal race I had ever seen. Usually the
laughter and spontaneity lasted all afternoon,
with the handicaps for each class for having too
many beers or a nagging wife or being broke.
After the races at supper time we would boil a lot
of shrimp and spread some newspaper on the
table and the charterers would, eat until they
There was an old fellow named "Al" who lived
on a steel hull sloop who looked just like Gary
Cooper. He usually won what was called the gaff
rigged class. There were a couple of gals on a big
motorsailor who always protested everything.
There was an old Scotchman who was building a
cement boat that calmed them down. I could go on
for pages describing all the characters that lived
at this marina.
Another interesting thing was a houseboat
built on land with a neat little garden in front of it
with a cannon and a sign that said, "A genuine
authentic replica of a pirate cannon."

July 15 -August 15,

The sun had already warmed my chaise lounge
when I came outside to read one morning in Key
West. I positioned the chair to overlook the
lapping water. Within a few minutes I was aware I
had visitors. Two small brown lizards were
sunning themselves on a rock near me. They
periodically skittered off to try to catch an insect,
usually succeeding, but sometimes returning to
the warm rock to wait for slower prey to happen
e Various species of lizards are prevalent in
a Florida where they are active throughout the
year, not hibernating as they do in a cooler
e climate. They seldom reach more then six inches
I in length, live about one year and are harmless.
t If you take time to observe these acrobatic
y residents, you'll be fascinated by their antics.
t Because the lizard is a cold-blooded reptile, its
f body temperature more or less matches that of its
f surroundings so it usually reaches its peak of
t activity during the warmer part of the day and
r retreats to a hole in the ground or crevice in a rock
when evening approaches.
Anoles are common. The green anole can
quickly change from green to gray or brown,
depending on its environment, light, emotional
state and physical condition. It is often called the
Skinks comprise the largest lizard family,
some of the members being sand burrowers.
Geckos have adhesive pads on their feet which
enable them to run across windows or hang from
ceilings like flies.
The lizard's ancestry goes back 200 million
R years and the reptile is well adapted to its
G environment. Its skin has a protective layer of
scales which vary accordingly, in size, shape and
color to the different species. I once observed
eight different patterns of intricate markings on
the sleek bodies of lizards playing around my
patio plants. Sometimes the patterns of the
young are different from the parents which must
be confusing even to the lizards!
The lizard has good vision, but doesn't seem to
pay much attention to sounds. It can swim and
hop reasonable distances. The tongue is used to
smell, taste and touch, and to lap droplets of dew
Watch a hungry lizard demonstrate his
ecological usefulness. His appetite for spiders,
Palmetto bugs and other critters help keep our
insect population under control. He will slink
toward his prey, stop a short distance away,
quiver expectantly, then open his jaws and dash
toward the insect, catching it in his mouth. After
cracking the exoskeleton of the bug, he swallows
it and look around for seconds.
Reptilian courtship demands some form of
display. The male lizard has a dewlap, or throat
fan, which he opens to expose bright orange or
red skin. This adornment is used not only to
attract females but to frighten other males.
The lizard goes through his stereotyped
movements (doing push-ups and fanning his
dewlap) regardless of his audience. If a female is
looking on, she remains passive. If a male is
confronted, he either returns the display or
retreats. Sometimes males put on a virgorous
show in their attempt to intimidate each other.
Most lizards are eggbearing and equipped at
birth with a special feature called the"egg tooth."
This is a very sharp-edged tooth that protrudes
from the embryo's upper lip. At hatching time, the
baby lizard slits open the shell,.emerges from the
egg and sheds the egg tooth.
The lizard is a great bluffer. When its speed
isn't sufficient to escape a predator, it will feign
death, then dart to safety when its captor
releases it. Another defense mechanism is its
ability to voluntarily shed its tail. The severed
wriggling tail distracts and confuses the predator
while the lizard slowly slinks away to grow a new
one. A new tail, which can be grown a number of
times, often is not as long as the original but still
aids the lizard in balancing.
With so many species inhabiting Florida,
there's always a chance of spotting an unusual
lizard. This recently happened to me one evening
while I was awaiting the sunset. A darkly
patterned brown lizard appeared on the dock. Its
large broad head was bright crimson! Before I
could run for my camera, he fled, and I never saw
The next time you see a lizard, take time to
observe him. He's an important link in the
ecological chain and lots of fun to watch.

I have a Mercury outboard 115 with (3) three
carburators with low hrs. My problem is the
engine stops running from time to time. Starts to
lose revs plus will die unless choke is activated.
Sometimes will die anyway. Won't start until it
gets ready which could be from one to thirty
minutes. Plugs are firing. Pump is pumping.
Have rebuilt fuel pump. (3) carburators, gas line
bulb pump and plus valves. Installed new fuel
filter in-line plus mercury in-line water seperator.
Did get a little water in carb bowls. Gas tank is 24
gallons in bilge. Think it could be water in tank or
vapor lock. Have I corrected the problem?
I hope your problem is solved but if not, here is
what I suggest to you. 1. First check if water pump
is working at full capacity plus cooling engine to
prevent overheating. 2. check all gas or fuel lines
to see if you have a crack or air leak at any part
especially at bulb pump. 3. Clean fuel tank for
sediment or water being pumped up into engine.
4. As a last resort I have installed high
performance engines with an electricfuel pump in
the line which operates only on demand when fuel
pressure drops. Too many filters in the line can
also hold back fuel pressure especially if one is
clogged with.dirt or waterCheck them again plus
let me know how you made out.

"A TREASURE HUNTERS PARADISE"
by Bryan Brooks
Summer diving off Ft.Lauderdale is here again.
To get the maximum return for your effort here
are some tips. Take your time in the water. One of
the biggest mistakes we make as divers is that we
get into water we go someplace. Usually the dive
boat had taken us to a beautiful section of the reef
but for some reason we decide we want to go
someplace else and miss what ever beauty was
on the reef. Another habit we have is never
stopping near a nice coral head. We often don't
realize that our bubbles scare many fish away so
we don't see anything at first and continue on our
way. At the end of the dive we've seen the whole
area and haven't seen any life and wonder why or
think maybe the reef is just dead.
If we'll stop and relax for awhile usually the
coral fish and sea life will begin to return and we'll
see it all. This was a habit I had to learn from my
wife who would spend forever at one place while I
was in a big hurry to go somewhere else never
In the summer months the beach diving is
excellent because the seas are generally calmer
and the visibility close to shore is good. Early
morning is an excellent time to see the first reef
just offshore. Snorkel out to the beginning of the
scrub reef and drop down. Most divers try to
snorkel out to the deeper section further offshore
because the ledges or coral heads are better
defined. However close to shore thereareoften
many interesting creatures that can be seen if the
diver will go slow and look small. Most of us just
look around for'panoramas. Look for smaller
things and creatures like coral banded shrimp
and little jawfish will appear. Also in going slow
you will see interesting things like bigger fish at
a cleaning station. The tiny neon gobies are there
going all over the bigger fish as though they were
at some type of car wash or dentist's office. The
bigger fish like a barracuda will stay perfectly
still with his mouth open while the gobies work
around getting rid of parasites- natures version
of a shave and haircut.
If you're into macro photography then all of the
above you already know. I think if people are
getting into photography underwater that macro
or close up photography would be the best type of
pictures for beginners to take. It forces you to
look for smaller creatures and little corals
making everything much more visible.
CREATE A REEF "
The Broward County Dive Industry Association
and South Florida Divers Scuba Club want to help
Steve Somerville do his job. Somerville works for
Broward County and is head of the artificial reef
program. He has coordinated the sinkings of the
Lowrance and Mercedes off Broward's shores
with the aid of local fishermen and divers.
Without the monetary and manpower support of
the public, projects such as the Mercedes would
be unfeasible. Recognizing the need for a
standing pool of funds and volunteers, South
Florida Divers with the support of the dive
industry of Broward County has formed Create a
Reef Fund, Inc. Anyone interested, in reef
enhancement is urged to pledge his or her time
and money to the fund. Monies will be used to
assist Somerville and the county in buying
appropriate structures to be added to Broward's
growing artificial reef. People are needed to
salvage and make environmentally safe future

or call 942-3950 (in Broward), 865-7339 (Dade).
Summer night diving is also excellent. The
waters are warm and again little creatures like
coral polyps are out feeding. Fish such as parrot
fish fall asleep and weave themselves into little
sacks. On clear moonlite nights it's often fun in
shallow water with your buddy to turn your light
out and see the clarity around you. It'll disspell
any claustrophia addicts among new divers. The
ocean at night is alive and quite beautiful. It
amazes people who think of diving only in the
context of going to the Bahamas or the Caribbean
or Truk Lagoon. Try Ft.Lauderdale, either off the
beach or on a boat-at the second and third reef.
Now with the Mercedes I anchored forever
offshore summer diving off Ft. Lauderdale offers
even more exciting sights to see. After only three
months under water the Mercedes I is alive and
well. On each dive more fish and more growth can

The Dive Shops and Charter Services in

we all laid off, the fish life within a short period of
time would be incredible.

Ah, the white, succulent meat oozing hot, golden butter
with a bottle of light and dry white wine chilled to
perfection! As the last brilliant rays of Sunday summer
sunlight sparkle on the crystal surface of the sea, you feel
the warmth of the wine and the copper flush from the sun
on your skin. The "drought" is over. Lobster season is
here, and with it comes the sun, the warm sea, and the
harvest of sensual fruits the hedonist in each of us
Lobstering in the sub-tropical waters of the North
Atlantic, the Caribbean and the Gulf of Mexico is not only
big business to commercial interests, it is perhaps the
most gastronomically pleasing hunt a sportsman can
enjoy. The season opens officially every year on July 26
and closes on March 31. But written into Florida law are
sport diver's days, which occur a week before the
commercial lobsterman set their traps and crew members
grab their bully nets. The 20th and 21st of July are set
aside for sportsmen their special days to catch the
Florida spiny lobster (Panulirus argus).
The laws pertaining to lobstering were created to
protect the species and the industry from violators who
might deplete the population and over-exploit a vital
source of food, enjoyment and income. Here is a brief
synopsis of these regulations:
eCarapace (head and body) must exceed 3 inches.
eTail not less than 5'/2 inches.
*Lobster must remain intact at all times on or below the
surface of the water. Specifically, the tail must not be
wrung or separated from the body.
eSpearing, hooking hand held instruments, or penetrat-
ing the lobster with knives or sharp tools is prohibited.
*No egg-bearing females may be taken.
*Limit: 24 legal size per boat.
*Sport diver's days limit is 6 legal size per person, per
day; no limit per boat; 12 total per person if overnight
Restricted area: Cape Florida west to Matheson
Hammock south through Barnes Sound. This
entire body of water is a juvenile nursey where
"shorts" mature, and it is now protected by the
Florida Department of Natural Resources (DNR)
and patrolled by the Florida Marine Patrol (FMP)
No lobstering of any type is allowed in this area
The FMP, which is grossly understaffed and in need of
vital equipment, is faced with the responsibility of patrol-
ling all of Florida's waters. Their attitude toward violators
is no nonsense, no excuse.
A serious violation, such as possession of shorts,
means the vessel could (and should) be impounded, the
operator fined, and so forth. Trap poachers are also sus-
ceptible to an angry commercial lobsterer who has just
seen you stealing from his "cash register." For a $50 fee,
the serious diver or captain can purchase a commercial
permit from the Florida DNR which removes the limit on
quantity. Sgt. McPhail of the FMP emphasizes the law,
"Make sure they're not egg-laying females, and they must
remain in a whole condition."
WHAT YOU WILL NEED-
To join the hunt, you need only a few basic and
inexpensive pieces of gear. If you are skin or scuba
diving, in addition to your mask, fins and snorkel, you'll
need a good pair of gloves to protect your hands from the
lobster's spiny body. A weight belt will help you get down
to the lobster quickly, and with less effort (2 to 4 pounds
may be all you need). A landing net, "tickle stick" lobster
gauge, and large goody bag are essential. The landing net
can be purchased from any tackle shop, the goody bag

and lobster gauge at any dive shop. Total cost should be
around $20 for the net, bag and gauge. Getting your own
personal tickle stick will be a brief exercise in discovery
learning. Many "experts" prefer an old car antenna. The
tip of an old fishing rod is also commonly used. But tickle
sticks can be any 3- to 4-foot length of suitable material.
Even round curtain rods make suitable ticklers.
Last of all, but perhaps most important for your safety,
you will need about 50 feet of line, a 4-pound weight, and
a surface float with the diver's flag properly displayed.
Florida law requires the diver's flag be flown whenever
skin or scuba divers are in the state's waters. Boaters
should exercise extreme caution whenever they see the
familiar red flag with the white diagonal stripe. A vessel
should approach the area within 100 feet of a diver's flag
only by drifting with engines off or in neutral. Sailors
should furl their sails and also drift into the 100-foot
circle. Smart divers surface close to their flags after per-
forming a 360-degree spin just before breaking the
surface, and they never dive in areas of high boat traffic,
such as channels and through waterways.
BREEDING AND MIGRATION .
During the months of July and August, the egg-bearing
females are busy depositing their eggs on the outer reefs
and deeper waters. The eggs are transported with plank-
ton movement in a post-larvae stage into the bays,
estuaries and shallower depths close to shore to mature.
Studies are being conducted to determine the patterns of
breeding and movement. A better understanding of the
Florida lobster's habits will enable conservationists and
biologists to provide us with better harvesting data.
During the months of October and November, the spiny
lobster migrates. A curious "march" of the entire
community takes place from the deeper waters to the
shallower flats and channels. In their juvenile stage,
movement can be widespread. Shorts tagged in
Biscayne Bay have turned up as far away as Key West. At
present, the migratory pattern is not totally established,
and the complete life cycle is not fully understood.
Conservation areas, such as the Biscayne National Monu-
ment and the Everglades National Park (no lobstering is
permitted within the park boundaries), could have impact
on the entire Florida lobster population.
Lobster are found most often where it is reasonably
dark and some water movement exists. Night diving for
bugs is both productive and exciting. Being nocturnal,
they come out at night to scavenge for food. Their beady
little eyes glow a bright red as they literally cover the reef.
During the daylight hours, lobsters can be found hiding
in crevices, under ledges, in the safety of shipwrecks, and
under bridges. They adapt to the oddest of habitats. Old
cans and 50-gallon drums are sometimes worth a look.
You may find a bunch stacked up inside! Lobster will even
make use of a hole in the shallow flats, leaving only their
antennae protruding to sense any predator that may
Beware: A lobster with only one antenna protruding is a
signal. The other antenna is aimed back into his hole
because something else maybe a moray eel, a stone
crab, or even another lobster is in there sharing the
space. Blindly reaching into a hole and grabbing a lobster
can be hazardous to your hands!
There are countless techniques and methods. Some
"experts" whisper enchanting Indian words to them,
insisting this makes them walk out of their holes and sub-
missively deposit themselves in your bag. Others
hypnotize them with one hand while the other hand
sneaks up from behind to put the grab on them. Lobsters
can be momentarily hypnotized by distracting their
antennae with gentle vibrations. You must be very careful
not to actually make contact with the antennae, however,
or you'll be left wriggling your fingers at a cloud of mud.
It's uncanny the way they seem to enjoy shooting from
one hole to another across the grassy flats, almost as if
they are pointing their antennae straight at you and
saying, "Come on. Just try and catch me now!" And,
inevitably, you will be lured into his game and chase him
for a bit with a hypnotic glaze in your eye!
Another method is walking the antennae. By inching
down both antennae with your fingers, ever so slowly and
gently, you can reach the carapace and grab. But be care-
ful: All Florida lobster have two sharp horns protrduing
between their antennae that can give your hand a nasty
A lobster will gladly sacrifice its antennae to escape. If
you are lobstering for the first time, expect to catch a few
antennae. All it takes is a slight pull and they'll snap off in
pieces or whole. This leaves the lobster at a
disadvantage, and you very frustrated.
There are ledges where dozens of lobster will be
literally stacked on top of one another waiting for the
wand of an experienced "bugman." It's important that you
move in cautiously, being careful not to alert the lobster to
your presence by sending off any vibrations to their super-
sensitized feelers. The trick is to hold your landing net off
to the side and tickle one under its tail. Tricked into
feeling something behind it, the lobster walks out of the
hole. With a carefully directed flick of your wrist, the
lobster is guided into the waiting net; it twists in the
webbing, hooking its spines. If you move cautiously, you
can make all of the others walk out and into the net; each
is carefully measured and transferred to the bag.
When you have your limit, unhook the catch bag from
your belt and carry it back'in your hand. If you allow it to
drag against you leg as you swim, your carelessness wil
be rewarded by scratches from the spines sticking
through the little holes. Back on board, store the lobsters
in a wet burlap sack. Keep them cool and wet and they
will live as long as two days.
You can test their freshness by picking them up. If the
tail curls under, they're fresh and alive. If they die, they
must be eaten immediately, and cannot be frozen.
Lobster, like most seafood, begins to spoil as soon as it
dies. The digestive acids of the stomach and intestines
seep into the body and tail meat and soon cause it to
spoil. They can also be kept alive overnight in the
refrigerator, not the freezer. At sea, store them in a burlap
sack and periodically give them a dunk in the briny.

A SWIM FOR LIBERTY
June 23, 1985 (5:35 a.m.)...
Only twenty miles off the Florida coast and
twenty hours and ten minutes after they began
beating the tide at Gun Cay's Honeymoon Harbor,
James and John di Donate decided to end their
swim in the face of a severe lightning storm and
heavy seas. Despite the fact that the di Donatos
(the "Tiger Twins").did not make land fall they did
set a new world's record for swimming the
butterfly stroke-40.6 miles. The swim was a
fundraiser for the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island
The Tiger Twins swam. without the benefit of a
protective shark cage, opting instead for soap
shavings in their trunks and a team. of divers
equipped with "bang sticks" riding shot gun on
Aqua Scotters. Vegetarians, John and James,
were given alternative "feedings" of carrot and
beet juice and water, or fruit juices, bee polling,
sparalena (algae), liquidified'banana and water.
Bobby Rubinos Restaurants donated catering
services and a charter boat (HAPS TG), Wyndham
corporation provided training and lodging
facilities for the swimmers and their support
team. National Marine Telephone provided radio-
telephone communication between the support
boats and Florida. Gary Lake of River Bend
Marine captained his "Big Brother" a 36' Torre
Penny as a lead boat. Sailorman Marine Store
donated the use of an inflatable boat at the last
The divers-Tucker Durand, Laura Ankrum,
David Kaplan, Bill O'Connell, Johnny Vella, Dan
Manck, Gary Ansley and Russ Rector-may also
have set some sort of record: with alternating
teams of divers in the water during the entire
twenty hour effort. The dive boat was a Viking 35
out of the Annapolis Yachting Center.
It is too early to be-thinking about another
attempt by John and James to swim from the
Bahamas to Florida but one thing that is certain is
that the Tiger Twins will continue to swim for the
Statue of Liberty. For more information about

The new portion of the reef was formed by the
sinking of a 150-foot freighter, which was docked
on the Miami River for the past five years. The
freighter was renamed "RENEGADE" after the
Dallas, Texas fishing boat of the same name
which recently won top honors in the 20th Annual
Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo on May 17
through 19. Because of the team's commitment to
conservation and the enviornment, they donated
their cash winnings to purchase the freighter for
the "Renegade Reef". The group, known as the
"Texas Terrors", consist of Tom O'Connell, James
Roberts, Kent Smith, John Johnson and Keith
The "Rodeo Reef", a permitted one and 1/2
miles long site off Pompano Beach was obtained
two years ago. It became the home of the largest
artificial fishing reef on the entire East Coast of
the United States with the "Lowrance Reef" a435-
foot freighter was sunk March 31, 1984. In
addition to the "Lowrance" 34 Chevron gasoline
tanks and two tug boats occupy the site. With the
addition of the "Renegade Reef", Pompano Beach
fisherman and divers benefit from the largest
array of items on an artificial reef site.
In addition to the reef, the Rodeo also donates
annually to the International Game Fish
Association, University of Miami's study of
ciguatera, and the Pompano Beach Public
Library's marine science section.
Working in conjunction with engineer Steve
Sommerville of the Broward County
Environmental Quality Control Board, the Coast
Guard inspected and approved the freighter for
sinking. Sunk June 10, 1985 at 1:00 p.m., the ship
was towed to a site about one and one half miles
east of Pompano Beach and sunk -in
approximately 240 feet of water. The
superstructure of the ship extends 45 feet.
Sommerville related that the county has been
instrumental in establishing 16 major artificial
fishing reefs in the area in the past two years.
"They have a great impact on our area of the East
Coast", he said. "Surveys show that fishing and
diving are the third largest industry in the area,
and they depend almost entirely on the reefs.
They enhance our recreational benefits, and they
impact our tourist industry".

TRY BIMINI IN YOUR SMALL
BOAT THIS SUMMER
by Bill Rhodes
Just across the Gulfstream lies some fantastic
fishing waters. Summertime is a great time for
the small boater to take advantage of the calm
weather and make the crossing.
Recently I ventured over with 9 other small
craft for a long weekend. We left the Whistle Buoy
just after 6:00 A.M. as dawn was breaking. The
seas were mirror calm. Leaving early you usually
miss the afternoon sea breezes and
thunderstorms which are common this time of
It was a comforting feeling to cross that great
expanse of open water with the company of other
boats. You never know when a problem may
arise. But on this particular day the conditions
. were perfect and the crossing took just undertwo
As we arrived, a huge thunderstorm greeted us.
Wind and rain pelted us as we moored to the dock
near Customs and Immigration. What a reception,
lightning and the whole works.
We survived and proceeded to check in with
Immigration. This was more of an adventure than
the thunderstorm. Then down to Customs, ho
After checking into our rooms, in which by the
way, reservations are necessary, we left the dock
for an afternoon of fishing on the reef. Right out in
front of Bimini's harbor entrance is some great
angling. We remembered this from past
Deep jigging with jigs, plain or tipped with
balao, we had some steady action in 120 to 180
feet of water. You never know what could lurk in
these waters because of the endless variety and
abundance of game fish the Bahamas have to
On our first drift we landed a dandy Mutton
Snapper and a colorful Nassau grouper both in
the ten pound range. Soon a Barracuda along
with a smaller grouper were caught. The light
Easterly breeze blew us slowly off the reef as the
depth increased. A beautiful 7 pound Cero
Mackerel then a twelve pound King came aboard.
At the edge of the reef in about two hundred feet
of water the bottom drops straight down to
around 1400 feet. Along this ledge we
encountered schools of Black Fin Tuna, Horse Eye
Jacks, Rainbow Runners and school of Dolphin.
We had a lot of action. Satisfied, we headed in.
After cleaning up, several crews got together for
a genuine seafood feast. Some had gone diving
and gathered some conch. Fresh conch salad was
in order. On the outside grill we charcoaled some
G ouper and H)n Slapper. The rum was chilled
and a great time was had by all.
Over the next two days our anglers had great
action. We tried chumming the reefs for Snapper,
Grouper and Yellowtail. One boat landed 33
Mutton Snapper. Yellowtail were quite plentiful
We spent one day trolling the blue water, to no
avail. Artificial lures as well as rigged natural
baits were used. If you are after a Blue Marlin
chances are much better there across the stream.
As far as diving is concerned one can be
assured of a most pleasurable experience. There
is coral everywhere plus numerous cave areas.
Dive boats are available for charter.
You can travel north to Isaac Light or south
beyond Cat Cay and find fabulous fishing and
diving areas. So pick up a Bahamas Guide for
boaters and get together with some friends and
make the trip. This could be your first step toward
island hopping throughout the Bahamas.
