LETTER S WATERFRONT NUWS
In anticipation of construction work to start
along the North Perimeter Road (S.W. 34 Street) of
the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International
Airport approximately mid October, I want to
share information about this project with you and
other residents and businesses in tlhe
A 1.1 mile, 8 lane viaduct will be built along the
North Perimeter Road of the airport, with ramps
connecting it to the new relocated section of U.S.
1. The $31,453,439
contract has been awarded to Capeletti Brothers,
Inc. of Hialeah, and is Iart of the 1-595/Port
Everglades Expressway Project. Included in this
work is the elimination of a portion of the old Port
Everglades Railroad connection between the
Seaboard Systems Railroad (west of 1-95 and the
Florida East Coast Railway (west of U.S. 1). This
allows a new North Perimeter Road to be
constructed parallel to and slightly north of the
existing North Perimeter Road.
Traffic will then be shifted from the old to the
new Perimeter Road to allow building the viaduct
over the old Perimeter Road. Perimeter Road
traffic will be maintained during construction.
Even so, we have all experienced slow downs
driving near construction zones and this project
will be no different.
The new North Perimeter Road will still connect
with the following avenues: S.W. 2nd, 4th, 9th,
11th, 13th, and 15th. An improved feature will be
the connection of S.W. 12th Avenue to the new
Perimeter Road. Access to all businesses along
Perimeter Road and to the residential areas
adjacent to North Perimeter Road will be
maintained during the 25 months of construction
You might find it of interest to know that by
buying out and removing a part of the Port
Everglades Railroad, we were able to make
design and construction improvements that will
net at least a $10 million savings to the total 1-595
project. Also, the design of the roadway on
columns as a viaduct was done purposefully to
minimize the taking of property. It also offers the
advantages of avoiding impact to Snyder Park
and providing ready access to businesses along
the northern boundary of the airport.
Engineering studies of noise and air pollution in
the area clearly indicate the introduction of 1-595
traffic on the viaduct will not add to the existing
situation. The dominant factor in the area
continues to be airport activities. With traffic
elevated approximately 18 feet on the viaduct and
moving in a faster, steady stream than the way it
moves today, it is reasonable to expect less noise
and emissions from automobiles.
Should you have any questions, please contact
Mike Sherman with our Construction Manager,
Raymond Kaiser Engineers/Howard Needles
Tammen & Bergendoff at (305) 463-1-595 or Ann
Reynold with DOT (305) 524-8621. In addition, you
are invited to visit the 1-595 Community
Involvement Program office at 3320 S.W. 13
Avenue (just off the North Perimeter Road in
Schaeffer Industrial Park). There you can see the
award winning 30 foot3-dimensional scale model
of 1-595 that will help you visualize the viaduct
project. You can also pick up information
pertaining to the overall project and its progress.

If Fort Lauderdale calls itself the Venice of
America, it is a half-truth. We may have the boats
but where are the cafes, art galleries and
museums? Why is it that in every major city in the
world you will find these diamonds in the rough,
yet Fort Lauderdale, a city most conducive to this
social experience, has not yet made the discovery
The Me Generation of bars and discos, where
the emphasis lay on one's looks and one's drink,
is finally coming to an end. Today, the new Yuppie
Generation is looking for a social atmosphere
that puts the emphasis on friendship, stimulating
conversation, the arts and natural fare.
In comes the cafes, art galleries and museums.
S Being single, as many of my friends will attest to,
is not easy in Fort Lauderdale because of the lack
of interesting and comfortable places to meet
new people. These cultural spots offerthis setting
Why does Fort Lauderdale, such a
geograhically beautiful city, have to continue
appealing to such graphically unattractive
tourist demands such as the Strip and its many
unsightly bars? Not only would cultural spots
beautify the city and appeal to its residents, they
would attract a better class of tourist.
Childhood nicknames are eventually
outgrown, hence "Fort Liquordale" is no longer
suitable for our maturing city.

Your September 15-October 15, 1985 Issue of
the Waterfront News was outstanding. There was
waterfront news of interest to people on the land
as well as for those on boats. Great articles too...
I particularly liked the article about Herold Boat
Company. My children grew up with Chuck
Herold's and I am sending the article to my
daughter who lives up north.
I read the whole paper from cover to cover; no
skipping around. Keep up the good work.
To The Readers:
By the time the pages of this special Boat Show
Issue of the WFN runs through the presses, I will
have exchanged the spectre of Force 12
hurricanes for the hot, dry, smokey Santa
Anas...the lush verdant green of palmetto and
coconut palms for the muted, dusky hues of sage
and desert date palms...the narrow band of dunes
fringed by the Everglades and Florida Straits for
the valleys and foothills encircled by the sparsely
adorned San Gabriel mountains and the blue
Pacific surf that is the diversity known as L.A.
This leaving embraces and entwines several
themes. First, a calling back, (I was born and
raised on the Pacific coast) to horizons jagged
with mountains and beaches hedged by sheer
cliffs and rocky headlands. Equally important is
the act of faith, the movement toward a goal
(graduate school). Anticipation of greater
satisfaction that working toward and achieving
this goal may bring also draws my family and me
away from the delights of Broward.
But for the present, I'd argue the opinion that it
is easier to leave than to be left. I enjoy my life in
Broward and the longer I worked with the WFN,
the more the whole of life here mattered. I like my
business community, the WFN's advertisers and
those I'd like to see displayed on these pages. I
hope our association helped them to achieve a
measure of progress toward their goals, toward
their dreams being realized.
As a final salute to these people and their
aspirations, I ask all of WFN's readers to call WFN
advertisers first when you need a product or
service. This newspaper can be viewed as their
gift to you. Your patronage is their reward, their
While my family and I traverse the high plains
of Texas and the raw, nude mountains of New
Mexico, my memories will be of living here on the
waterfront, and of the WFN, it'd staff, friends,
community of businesses and readers that we

State Cabinet Approves
Submerged Land Lease Fee
by Van Snider
The Blue Ribbon Marina Committee report-
public hearings throughout the state
administrative hearing process, District Court of
Appeals, phone calls, telegrams, letters, Marine
Industry Association of Florida "Fairness in
Marina Fees" Committee, and hours of hard work
and testimony failed to convince the majority of
the Governor's Cabinet that changing the
submerged land lease fee structure to include a 7
percent of potential revenues formula would
have a negative affect upon the marine industry.
On September 17, 1985, the Governor and
Cabinet sitting as the Board of Trustees of the
Internal Improvement Fund approved the
Department of Natural Resources' proposal for a
fee to be the greater of either 7 cents per square
foot or 7 percent of the potential revenue from slip
rentals less a 30 percent discount to those
facilities open to the public on a first come, first
Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle Conner, in
an effort to soften the blow, proposed an
amendment to reduce the 7 percent to 5 percent.
The motion was seconded by Comptroller Gerald
Lewis. Prior to the vote on the amendment,
Secretary of State George Firestone expressed
that he had a problem with gross revenues
approach and that the state may lose a few
marinas in the process. Governor Graham asked
for the vote on the amendment. Conner, Lewis
and Firestone voted for the amendment but
Governor Graham, Attorney General Jim Smith,
Treasurer Bill Gunter, and Ralph Turlington,
Commissioner of Education, voted against the
amendment; i.e., the amend, which was an effort
to reach a compromise, lost by one vote.
With the amendment failing to pass, the 7
percent proposal was passed unanimously.
Immediately following its passage, Sec. of State
Firestone moved that the staff of the Department
of Natural Resources conduct a study with
representatives of the industry to propose a more
fair method for the state to receive compensation
for use of state owned submerged land.

Set Backs For Boats
by M.G. Swift
Berlin has a wall. Beirut has a green line. Fort
Lauderdale has a canal that seperates Isle of
Venice from Fiesta Way. Last year the war was
waged over live-aboards. Isle of Venice and her
sister Hendricks Isle were set aside, a DMZ,
unique and unenforcable. This yearthe hostilities
are en a aing from the application of side yard
setbacks upon docked boats. Again it looks like
Venice and Hendricks will be madethe exception,
but R-1 and R-Z properties may become
The Fort Lauderdale City Commission on first
reading voted unanimously to move a city
ordinance that requires sideyard setbacks,
buffers between property lines and structures,
from a section of the city code which allows for no
due process other than the courts to a section that
allows a city board of variance to weigh
mitigating circumstances on a case by case by
case basis. Pretty dry stuff, except for the fact
that the city considers a docked boat a structure.
If it violates given setback the boat must be
moved even if it is the property owner's own boat.
At least with the proposed changes the guy with
the 55 boat and 65' feet of water frontage in a 10
foot setback zone will have somewhere to
demonstrate his hardship. Currently his only
recourse if the city enforces the setback
ordinance :; court. If enforced-that is the key.
Both sides of this issue are sore at the city for
its schizophrenic attitude towards enforcing zone
ordinances upon boats. The dock merchants of
Venice are angry because they've been violating

the law since 1972, unwittingly; and the city's
been issuing building permits for the
construction of perpendicutar docking well inside
their given setbacks. The single home residents
of Fiesta & Nurmi are upset because there has not
been enough enforcement.
Despite the fact that the vote was unanimous
among commission's for moving the setback
ordinance, reasoning for their affirmative votes
varied. Commissioner John Rodstrum feels that
giving dock owners due process is a first step but
he envisions Isle of Venice and Hendricks Isle
becoming a "special district", like the downtown
historic district. Commissioner Bob Cox would
take it one step further allowing for a waiver of
setbacks for boats docked at any R-3 property,
like those on Hendricks and Venice.
Commissioner Jim Naugle stresses enforcement
of density and parking rules; these are more
important than setbacks. Mayor Robert
Dressler's feelings is Hendricks and Venice are
unique boating areas and should be treated as

Fort Lauderdale Proposes 30
MPH Speed Limit on ICW
In response to boating accidents and excessive
speed on the Intracoastal Waterway, the Fort
Lauderdale City Comission last month proposed
a 30 mph speed limit which has to be approved by
the Department of Natural Resources and the U.S.
Coast Guard. If they approve, this would be the
first of its kind in Florida.
Florida Marine Patrol spokesmen have stated
both privately and publicly that this would be one
-added tool in the hands of law enforcement
officials in their attempt to improve safety on the
ICW. FMP personnel recently surveyed boat
speeds in three different locations and came up
with an average speed of about 27 to 28 mph.
Commissioner Bob Cox as well as other members
of the marine industry have expressed concern
over the reaction some boaters will have to
seeing a 30 mph sign. Some may react by
speeding up where they may have normally been
at slower speeds. Cox also expressed at a recent
Chamber of Commerce, Marine Task Force
meeting, that there should be a uniform
nationally recognized sign which would
represent a "no wash" zone.
Neverless, the 30 mph speed limit is an attempt
to control and reduce the exceptionally fast
powerboat from doing sixty down the ICW. This
proposal if approved will be on an 18 month trial
basis to see if it is enforceable and effective.

Tania Maria, one of the hottest Brazilian, Latin-
jazz performers on the circuit, will be here in Ft.
Lauderdale at the Parker Playhouse on November
2nd. The concert is sponsored by the Musicians
Exchange Referral Service and after the concert,
bring your ticket stub to the Cafe and come in to
hear Asante, free of charge.
Tania, one of five children in a musical family in
northern Brazil, started piano long before she
started singing. She began classical piano
around age 7 and within six years was
performing professionally with her own combo.
Despite her early exposure with the music world,
Tania found it difficult on the male-dominated
Brazilian scene. She married and spent two years
studying for a law degree only to leave her
husband in favor of a music career in Sao Paulo.
From there she traveled to Paris where she lived
and performed for ten years before moving to
New York and signing with the California based
Concord label in 1980. She has been recorded on
five European albums and five albums in the U.S.
Her second to the last album, COME WITH ME has
sold over 60,000 copies, making her the most
successful recording artist for Concord Records.
Tania is at once a singer, pianist,
composer/arranger. Her unique style has
captivated audiences worldwide from London fo
Australia, to India, to Paris- and across the U.S.

as well. She asserts herself at the keyboard with
firm fingers burning with relentlessly rhythmic
improvisational vigor. Her repertoire ranges from
crooned ballads, bopped vocalese, up-tempo
stomps to hip-swinging bossas and sambas and
funky blues- in Protuguese, English and the
international: language of scat.
SOne of my favorite things about her live
concerts, of which I have seen several, is her
inviting sense of audience participation. By the
end of the concert, people are on their feet,
swinging and swaying and responding in tandem
to her scintillating scat lines-- a kind of call and
response format. Tania, herself, admits that her
music is from Africa and that she is only going
back to her roots.

The Intracoastal Race Returns
For the 2nd. year the Hydroplanes and Champ
boats will return to the Intracoastal on OCTOBER
20th. beginning at 11 A.M. The 1984 event
witnessed a major attraction as over 15,000
people watched the races from the shoreline and
several hundred others watched from their
private boats. The concerns expressed as to
seawall damage and harming of manatees were
addressed by the race organizers who more than
lived up to their promises, resulting in no private
property damage and no harm to any wild life.
This years primary sponsor is Bobby Rubinos,
assisted by Steel Fabricators, Mercury Marine,
and others. The race is co-hosted by the City of
Fort Lauderdale Parks and Recreation Dept. This
years beneficiary is the Ann Storck Center For
Children, and our special guest hosts are again
the stars of Miami Vice, Don Johnson ,,id Philip
Officials of the organizing group have already
received entries from New York, California,

Key West Preparing To Host
1985 World Offshore Champion-
by Andy Newman
KEY WEST, Florida Keys -- Rough water
powerboat racing returns to Key West, November
10-16 with the "La Concha/Key West Offshore
Championship Race" series.
A field of 80 high-performance boats from
around the United States, Europe and South
America is expected to compete for top honors in
various classes during the week-long event.
The three-race series determines the best
offshore teams and boats in all APBA (American
Power Boat Association) and in UIM (Union of
International Motorboating) classes. Race days
are scheduled for Tuesday, November 12;
Thursday, November 14 and Saturday, November
16. Teams with most accumulated points in three
races will earn the title of World Champion in
The 160-mile course incorporates a portion of
Key West harbor, permitting thousands of racing
enthusiasts a close look at the action. Race
organizers plan to establish special bleachers at
Mallory Docks with large "Diamond-Vision" video
screens to provide monitoring of races as they
'When they (power boat racers) discuss Key
West, they say we're the 'Indy' (Indianapolis
Speedway) of the power boat racing circuit,"
declared Lee Winilzer, commodore of the Key
West Power Boat Race Association (KWPBRA).
Winitzer added that Key West will be host site for
world championships in 1986 and 1987.

Marine Electrical Systems
By W. T. Mendham
Sometimes we want to repair or install new
electrical equipment. We should follow the
recommended procedures per the AMRV. Boat &
Yacht Council to assure safe' and proper
operation, with no stray current and shock
General repairs- Removal and disconnection.
A. Determine Voltage, AC or DC.
B. Turn off circuit breaker that is servicing the
equipment. Possibly a fuse is in use or a main
would have to be turned off.
C. With a volt/ohmmeter check to see if the power
is actually off at the equipment before
D. Before removing connections, observe
positions. Direct current systems (12, 2432v.)
should have a red positive supply and a black
E. Mark wiring to be disconnected with wire
markers or masking tape for identification and
F. Alternating current equipment (120/240 vac)
has red or black hot conductors, and a white
neutral. A green ground conductor is usually
G. Remove retaining hardware and plumbing if in
H. After servicing replace equipment, before
reconnecting power certain that the power is off.
Do not use plastic wire nuts. Crimp type
connectors are preferred. It is not necessary to
solder connections, as they can become brittle
and separate under vibration and stress.
I. Test equipment and if plumbing is used test for
J. It is a good idea to maintain a record of the
repair (log) and include the warranty paperwork.
A. D.C. equipment needs to be supplied with the
specified voltage. I.E. 12,24, 32v. Source of power
should have the necessary capacity to operate
the new equipment without overloading the
B. The circuit should have protection in the form
of a circuit breaker or a fuse. It should be rated to
protect the equipment or to prevent exceeding the
current carrying capacity of the conductors.
Reasoning here is some equipment has built in
protection, such as a VHF radio with a 1 amp.
In this case the C/B could be rated at 15a to
protect the 14 AWG wiring. Briefly some common
wire sizes are as follows:
18 Awg. 5a 10 Awg. 30a
16 Awg. 10a 8 Awg. 40a
14 Awg. 15a 6 Awg. 50a
12 Awg. 20a 4 Awg. 60a
C. Power conductors for D.C. equipment are
available in the preferred red for the positive and
a black for the negative. Recommended boat
wiring has a outer vinyl cover as well as the
internal conductor insulation with a rating of
D. Secure all wiring runs with non metallic nylon
clamps or tyraps using stainless or bronze
E. Mechanically mount equipment allowing for
ventilation if called for.
F. If equipment is a pump motor below deck,
connect a ground conductor (10awg) green to the
boats bonding system for the prevention of stray
G. Make all connections with crimp type terminals
tightened securely. Allow sufficient length of
conductors for disconnection without cutting the
H. Alternating current equipment is basically the
same with the exception of wire color codes and a
ground conductor. The hot conductor is black or
red and the neutral is white. A green ground
conductor is required for the prevention of shock

I have a 35' Chris Craft, double cabin that is
having a problem with the air conditioning unit
in main saloon & the bow. The rear unit works
fine. I see water coming out of the discharge tube,
but the front air cuts out after 5 to 10 minutes. I
can start it but it cuts out again. What can I do?
I would first check to see if the discharge water
is coming out of the front air unit or the rear one.
The units will shut off if water is not cooling them.
Check cooling pumps if they are pumping water
(may need new impellor). Hoses may be clogged;
Blow or wash them out. Filters should be clean &
free flowing. Only when the pumps are pushing
water th u will the air run continuously. They
shut off to prevent damage to units when they
I get no reaction from gauges or engine starter

Check switch on battery switch over. Loose or
corroded. Conections will usually cause that
problem. Try jumper cables direct to starter from
battery. Also see if current is flowing to key
switch. Broken line to key will cut out all power to

I have a 115 HP Evenrude that seems to be
overheating. The red light goes on when I speed
up and goes out when I slow down. Water is
coming out of the visual opening & when I felt it, it
wasn't that hot. Intake seems clean & I wash in
fresh water when I come in.
The main reason outboards overheat, is
impellor trouble. A blade breaks off & clogs
passages. The impellor wears out & does not
pump suffient water at high speed. I would put a
new water pump kit in anyway. They should be
looked at yearly. Now for other reasons for
overheating: 1. Use correct ratio for fuel (oil &
gas); 2. Check for obstructions in lead in tube. 3.
Check gauges for defective heat sending unit; 4.
Check propellor for oversize or wrong type.

Underwater Wedding On The

Denise Raffa and Larry Rogers wanted to get
married. Seems simple, yet they wanted to get
married underwater where they felt the most
comfortable. So on a Sunday in late September
this year with two to four foot seas Denise and
Larry slid down an anchor line into eighty feet of
water and exchanged vows on the old tugboat

Captain Tony George the captain of the Ventura

years and it had plenty of beautiful and colorful
The wedding was performed by Mary Brooks a
licensed notary and a local dive shop owner who
had the vows written down on a large yellow
slate. Each one of the wedding couple slowly read
the vows and shook their head saying I do. Larry

The Woman In Diving/ A Male
by Byran Brooks
"It's a man's sport. Women can't handle the
physical requirement of diving." I can remember
saying that years ago. Those of us who started
diving back in the 50's well remember the
training, if any, we received. For five dollars at
Bahia Mar captain named Bob Whitney would
take us to the third reef off Ft. Lauderdale. We
would receive a tank, a two hose regulator and
some weights. We didn't know about clearing our
ears or diving too deep nor about the danger of
holding our breath. Somehow most of us would
cheat death and return to the surface.
When training was begun around the early
1960's I remember the instructor being some kind
of military man that reminded me of a John
Wayne war movie. I though that we were being
trained to swim up Port Everglades on the
incoming tide and blow up Florida Power and
Light Company. When I get my light bill there are
times when I remember my early training and
think about it. It would be my luck to get run over
by a steamship.
I can still remember the old Casino Pool at the
corner of South Atlantic Boulevard and SE 5th
Street. The pool with its beautiful Spanish
Architecture had salt water from the ocean and
chlorine. The instructor had a white sidewall
haircut. He would run us around that old pool
stripping masks off and making us do skills that I
thought for sure would kill all of us. I still
remember his endearing words, "All right you
people, saddle up."
Ah yes the good old days. Two hose regulators,
no safety vests and if you had a cold and couldn't
clear your sinus's you just ran down to the surf
and snorted salt water. Yea, it would clear up
anything. I don't know what they're snorting
these days but it ain't salt water. Times have
However in the changing times I've noticed a
few things. For one I wasn't ever as tough as I
used to think I was. For another two hose
regulators suck, literally. Also safety vests aren't
just for ---deleted, they're for everybody, they
Since I've been an. instructor, women have
taught me a few things. They've taught me things
like waiting around a pretty coral head for awhile
until the fish come back. The fish that I scared
away while prowling around blowing bubbles.
Things like listening to instructions yet letting me
know that I'd better not patronize them I learned
that if I gave them half a chance they'd be just as
good divers as men were. I think they look at
beauty and see it; I'd look at beauty and swim
They also taught me that the ocean that covers
most of our planet dosen't have to be another
tough war zone or enemy territory; that diving
can be as beautiful world where you cut the surly
bonds of earth and fly. Women also seem to take
a more sensible and safe approach. They seem to
be there to enjoy the beauty not to conquer it. By
the way if anyone ever conquers Mother Ocean let
me know, I'd buy tickets to watch that. The old
Girl has swallowed a lot of vain suckers in Her
belly down through the centuries, fools that came
to conquer and lost, lost big.
So although the old days are gone and certainly
there are some things I miss, like that beautiful
old Casino Pool, there are some nice changes. The
other fifty percent of the planets population has
discovered something new and in the process
they have taught me many things. To me they are
the things that matter most. They are they the
beauty in our water planet. Thanks.

Unique Undersea Habitat Gives
Diving A New Dimension
by Tom Smith
lan G. Koblick, ocean pioneer and marine
scientist, has created a facility that inspires and
motivates divers in a way that is practically out
of this world. Koblick is founder and president of
Marine Resources Development Foundation of
Fort Lauderdale and Key Largo, Florida and has
established a unique educational research and
marine center in Key Largo, featuring the world's
only underwater classroom habitat available to
An indication of the impact the underwater
classroom has on those experiencing the.
aquanaut training comes from the spontaneous
remarks uttered by divers as they emerge from
the sea after a twenty-four hour stay. "It's
incredible." "It's a totally different world." "You
feel separated, dependent on other sources." "It's
like diving from the present into the future."
The underwater classroom habitat is submerged
in approximately twenty-five feet of water in a
sheltered mangrove lagoon in the Atlantic Ocean
adjacent to the mainland's only living tropical
coral reef. It is an eighteen foot by eight foot steel
cylinder mounted on an anchoring and stabilizing
structure. One enters through a three foot hatch
on the bottom directly into a wet room containing
a fresh water shower and a storage area for
The living and study area has a porthole, three"
bunks, refrigerator, microwave oven, tables,
benches, stereo, research equipment, books all
the comforts of home. Another hatchway leads to
a five-foot diameter, crystal clear observation
sphere below. From the seat in the acrylic bubble
there is a 360 degree view of a teeming
underwater community of plants and sea
creatures. Tne habitat is connected by an
umbilical cable to a shore support van which

provides fresh hot and cold water, electricity,
fresh air, communications and back-up systems.
Aquanauts-in-training can leave the habitat as
often as they choose, but are attached to a
"hookah", a line which provides unlimited air,
thereby extending diving time. This allows the
diver to observe more patiently and closely the
undersea community. A recently certified
Aquanaut commented, "Upon my return to the
surface, I experienced an incredible euphoric and
exhilarating feeling of accomplishment. I felt
mildly unfamiliar with surface conditions after
my rapid adaptation to the prolonged
submergence. The sun was intensely bright and I
felt physically lighter. Also, I had a strong desire
to return to the habitat and repeat this unique
experience. It was unquestionably the greatest
adventure of my life."
The habitat was built at the United States Naval
Station in Annapolis, Maryland under the
supervision of Dr. Neil Monney, now Vice
President of Research for Marine Resources. It
was acquired by the Foundation and moved to its
Key Largo center after being completely
refurbished with improvements and new
technology. A second habitat is in drydock
standing ready for future Aquanauts. lan Koblick,
often referred to as America's Cousteau, spends
many hours sharing his experiences and
knowledge with the Aquanauts-in-Training. He is
a world authority on "Living and Working in the
Sea" which is the title of his recently published
scholarly work on the world history of undersea
habitats, their construction and design.

Christian Cruising Fellowship
by John Simpson
The ongoing developmental process of
creating an identity for the Christian Cruising
Fellowship has reached a somewhat stable
plateau Although we have yet to decide exactly
what we are, we have reached definite
conclusions as to what we are not. We are not:
denominational. We don't get drunk. We are not

Earlierthis year, Philip Vail completed work on
a revolutionary new device--the first windscoop
that swivels 360 by itself to deflect any breeze
into the cabin. Called the Vail Sail (pat. pend.), it is
.sturdy and durable, and can be attached to any
hatch in seconds. Both power and sail boats can
use the Vail Sail for ventilating the interior.

Bahamas in 1983, aboard his 38' Morgan sloop
Daemuraz. During the trip, Philip and his wife
spent many a sleepless night "tacking the
windscoop" when the tides or breeze would shift
at various Bahamian anchorages. He also noted
that power boaters at these anchorages were
always 'trying to rig up windscoops made of
sheets and brooms or fishing poles to ventilate
their boats without using fuel to run generators.
Especially in the outer island areas, the power
boaters seemed to sleep in cockpits or on decks
both to conserve fuel and remain cool. It just
didn't make sense! This plight inspired Philip's
After almost two year and over 100 variations
of the new windscoop, Philip finally achieved the
results he had hoped for. His new windscoop
works equally well for power boaters and sailors.
Free-standing and self-tending, it aims itself at
even the slightest breeze while swiveling 360.
And no halyards or overhead rigging are needed
to put it up.
Philip first introduced his invention to the
public at the Fort Lauderdale Spring Flea Market
for boaters this year. "Power boaters couldn't
believe it," he admits. "At last they had found
something that would work for them. They could
just attach it to their hatch in seconds and presto-
To complement the Vail Sail, Philip invented the
Vee Berth Scoop which attaches inside the hatch
to deflect the incoming breeze to anywhere in the
cabin. "We can even cut corners," he explains.
And an awning can be ordered that will enable the
Vail Sail to be used in the rain or as shading for
Philip's love of the sea is deep rooted. He grew
up in a seafaring family near the Chesapeake
Bay, and over the years has owned over35 power
boats. "They can heat up something fierce in the
sun," he says. "After a while you just give up
trying to cool them down. Nothing really works
short of airconditioning." He was not bitten by the
sailing bug, though, until he moved to the Fort
Myers area in 1976. A retired developer and CBS
newsman, he is now engaged in many southwest
Florida boating activities. This year Philip and
Vail Sail were the sponsors of the 1985
Summerset Sailing Regatta.
When asked whether he was satisfied with his
results. Philip could only reply, "It works. It really

"It can get so hot in the cabin of a'boat at night,
you can hardly stand it," lamented sailor Philip
Vail recently. "Mosquitoes on deck, a sauna
below. I mean, we spend thousands of dollars on
our boats and then can't get a good night's:sleep.
It was crazy. There just had to be a better way!"
Thanks to Vail's ingenuity and persistence that
better way has meant an end to "sauna cabin" for

What do sailboats and fishing have in common
with Neurofibromatosis? Fishing from sailboats
is not new by any means. It has been around for
hundreds of years. Neurofibromatosis is similar
it's been around for a long time. But wait a minute!
A sailboat fishing tournament to benefit NF? You
are right if you're thinking this is an unusual
cause. NF is a.genetic disorder striking over 1000
babies a year and over 100,000 Americans are
currently affected by it.
This year's Sailboat Fishing Tournament is
scheduled for Saturday, November 16th.
Lauderdale Yacht Club will again host the "Kick
Off Party" on Thursday, November 14th from 7 to 9
p.m. A weigh-in & Awards Party at Bahio Mar is
going to close the benefit on the evening of the
16th. This promises to be one of the most colorful
sailors' get-together you have ever experienced.
Last year's weigh-in had such oddities as a
twelve inch barracuda weighing five pounds
(stuffed with lead) and the "mysterious" fifty foot
ketch that took top honors claiming everytime the
crew had a drink of some cheap Mexican rum-
they caught a fish (and they had a lot of fish!).
Over-night dockage will be available at Bahia

Tournament is a non-profit benefit sponsored by

The Boating World's Finest
by Maria Pierson
The finest the boating world has to offer will be
on display during the 26th Annual Fort
Lauderdale International Boat Show at Bahia Mar
Resort and Yachting Center Thursday, October31
through Tuesday, November 4.
The list of impressive boat displays and marine
oriented accessories and equipment is endless.
From one end of Bahia Mar to the other, visitors
can explore more than 900 in-water and on land

Everybody Should Work A Boat
by Capt. Frank Papy
My first boat show in 1974. I write a cruising
guide on the Florida Keys. When you walk into a
boat show for the first time, the atmosphere on
set up day is unbelievable. Everybody is rushing
around with great anticipation in between lift-
trucks, cranes and masses of giant wooden
crates. You think to yourself, they will never have
this ready in two days, but they always seem to
get it done.
The second thing I learned was that you must
rent everything; the ten by ten foor space, the
carpet, curtains, chairs, signs, telephone,
electricity, extra lights, even down to the
I was lucky with my first show; my booth was
five spaces down from the bikini bathing suit
dealer who had five models standing around
.looking beautiful. The folks that had the booth
right next to them asked me if I'd trade spots with
them; they didn't want those girls distracting
people from their product. Being a green horn at
this business I agreed to change. Luckily, it
worked out very well. Guys would come up in
front of my booth, pretend to read it while looking
next door at the ladies. Some of the males would
be so engrossed I would say "That will be $9.95,
please." They would just pay me without thinking
and walk off. One gentleman even came back for
another book and look.
All the different people you see and the styles of
dress at the boatshow is enough to entertain
anyone. But don't let this fool you, you can't judge
anyone by what they wear as to what they will
spend. One night, there was a couple she had a
blue blazer and fancy boat shoes on and he was
dressed the same, except for about a $5,000 gold
Rolex watch. Next to them was an old gent with
khakis and work shoes on. I am talking to the
couple and my wife is helping the old gentleman.
The couple didn't buy anything. I talked to them
for about twenty minutes. When I finished my
wife said, "Can you get me two cases of books?
This gentleman liked them and he is going to give
them as Christmas gifts to one-hundred of his
business customers." You never know.
After a hard night of working the show a lot of
the exhibitors would gather at one of the bars and
discuss all the funny things that happen so fast
during the show, you don't have time to talk about
them, Man, I have heard some funny stories. At
the height of the boat show a guy came in with a
man behind him rolling a large old dirty engine on
a handtruck. They went up to the exhibit that
made the engines with all their fancy chrome
motors cut in half and beautiful beige carpet and
dun.ped the old motor right in the middle of the
floor and started raising hell about his warranty,
ect... I have never seen guys move so fast. They
called him in the back, wrote him a check, cut out
the carpet around the motor, drug it out of the
way and within ten minutes, I would say, the guy
was gone and they were putting a new piece of
carpet in the spot. That's the way to get your
warranty problems straightened out, I guess!
The paper that's used in the boat show in the
brochures that are being passed out is
unbelievable. One of the exhibitors said he ran
through 6,000 leaflets in one night at the Miami
boat show. Some people, I think, just try to see
how many they can get. They will be walking
around with two and three shopping bags full.,
'. .. :" ..
The comradery that develops during the show
amongst the exhibitors is fantastic. They develop
a language all their own for types of spectators
and nights of the show. For instance, Friday night
is date night, all.the young couples hand in hand.
Saturday night is the drinkers night, all the people
who went out to supper and had three martinis ,
then came out to the show. Sunday is family day.-
You have to watch out so the kids don't fall and
hurt themselves or start up the engines on the-4
All and all boat shows are ok. But there is a -
certain atmosphere I can't explain. Say, at an art
show or exhibit somebody gets in free either the V
exhibitor or the spectator; in other words,
somebody is doing a benefit for the public in order '
to further the cause. Boat shows have become so
expensive now; I hope they don't price
themselves out of the market. You have to pay to -..
park, it's $5 to $6 to get in and the prices at the
food concession stands have gotten out of hand.
A family of four who goes to the boat show on a
Sunday and has a bite to eat can plan on spending
$30 to $35. I think the idea of boat shows when
they started was to promote new boaters and
boating in general but it now is becoming a high
priced hype! Last year there were three booths
just selling guns and an other booth selling see-
in-the-dark scopes for about $6,000 a piece, and
something called the parabolic mike, so you can
hear voices 100 yards away. I think some of this
may scare off a young family thinking about
getting into the leisure life of pleasure boating.
They should appoint somebody to take a look at
the overall picture rather than just filling up
spaces and going for the allmighty buck.

Fall Migration: Fishing is Hot!
by Bill Rhodes
With the huge schools of baitfish moving south
along our Broward beaches the angler has a great
opportunity for some fast action. Mullet,
pilchards, herring and others migrate southward
close to shore attracting numerous predators.
Mackerel and bluefish, usually small in size
this time of year, swarm into feeding frenzies
with the vast abundance of food. Schools of huge
tarpon, barracuda, snook and jacks also joing in
I like the beach area north of Dania Pier. A brisk
nor'easter is desirable for whipping the surface of
the sea. Sometimes the rougher the conditions
the better the fishing. Of course it could become
too windy making it difficult for casting. One has
to be somewhat cautious not to be swept into the
surf by a giant roller!
Arrive at dawn and look up and down the
beaches to observe the action. Sometimes
hundreds of baitfish will leap from the water
fleeing a huge tarpon or snook. The surface of the
water may explode in front of you. Here is where
the action is get those lines in the water.
Live bait is the greatest but hard to cast into a
wind and then there is a problem keeping them
alive. I've seen bluefish chase the bait right up on
the beach. This is when you should have a rig
ready with simply an empty small live bait hook.
Pounce on a hapless pilchard or mullet and hook
him up immediately. Cast it out into the feeding
frenzy. Your. bait will have restricted movement
due to the weight of the hook and impalement,
give or take blood loss, perforated organs or
eyes, and sometimes a bad attitude. This leaves
him easy prey for those hungry predators.
Many times your bait will be devoured
instantly. Another way to do it is to cast your
weightless (or a small sinker) hook into the cloud
of baitfish and snag one with a fast retrieve and
jerky motion. As soon as a bait is hooked
securely just free spool him and soon enough he'll
become lunch for some gamester.
Twelve inches of light wire leader may be
necessary if the mackerel and bluefish are
present. After a couple of cutoffs I tie a piece
directly to the leader. A 1-0 or 2-0 live bait hook is
satisfactory unless there are larger fish around.-
Varieties of lures are very productive and some
weighted ones cast easily into brisk breezes,
spoons, Mirrolures, Rapalas, jigs, just to name a
few, work great at times. Light spinning or plug
tackle is all you need for easily.handling and
action a plenty. Travel light because you may be
in for a long walk in the sand.
World class angler Gary Lovell of Miramar had
some great beach action during that rough spell
as Tropical Storm Elena passed by. He has a
secret spot off Hallandale he fishes every fall. He
would not reveal the area or the secret lure!
Following the schools of mullet and pilchards
along the beach he had some action.
The very first cast produced a hefty jack
crevalle mistaken early in the battle as a record
pompano. Soon a huge tarpon upward to 100
pounds crashed a rapala lure and was off after a
couple spectacular leaps. Then a nice snook on
the secret lure, released to fight again. Another
strike: A whopping five pound lady fish. During
the two hour span of walking and casting the
beach Mr. Lovell caught another snook, several
bluefish and mackerel along with some jacks and
rummera. There was even a couple of fish on that
were too big to catch, as we say.
Another unknown angler fishing the same area
battled a mammoth tarpon for quite some time
before breaking him off. A real heart breaker!
After the same rough period there was also a
lobster walk when the water began to clear.
People fishing from the piers witnessed the rare
event. Many lucky beach combers took
advantage by wading into the surf and grabbing
them by hand.
Fishing the beaches in the fall brings some
great surprises. Give it a try while the bait is here

The Waterfront Freshwater
by Mike Johnson
The best area at this time for bass fishing is
Lake Okeechobee. Bass are hitting Red Shad
plastic worms and Johnson Spoons around the
peppergrass beds and in the open water, in the
Belle Glade and Clewiston areas. Several nice
bass have been brought in during the last week.
At Loxahatchee Recreation area located 6
miles west of SR 441, on Lox Rd. west of Boca
Raton, the spillways are open and this has
hampered bass- fishing efforts recently. The
most productive area has been the flats off the
west canal. Dark colored worms and Rapala lures
have been most effective, however the fish have
been running on the small side.
Action has started to improve (finally) at
Sawgrass Recreation area. The spillways along
US #27 were opened last week and several nice
size bass (up tp 6 1/2 Ibs.) have been taken in the
fast moving water at the spillways using live
shiners. Some nice bluegill are also being caught
at these spillways.
Everglades Holiday Park the water level is still
high, and will continue to remain high as long as
the gates to the spillways at Sawgrass are open.
Not many anglers are catching bass here. Some
small bass are being caught near Alligator Alley,
but nothing to bragg about.
On 9/14/85, The Everglades Bass Anglers Bass
Club, held its monthly bass tournament at Slim's
Fish Camp in Belle Glade (Lake Okeechobee).
There were 18 anglers fishing this tournament. At
first things did not look so good. Theweather was
tough with high winds hampering efforts, and
making traveling in the lake itself a challenge.
These guys did not give up however. At the final
weigh-in time there were 23 fish caught, the
biggest weighing 51 lb. 7 oz. caught by Dewain
Dubberly. First place was won by Bob Sandidge
with a total weight of 8 Ibs. Nice going guys.
Everglades Bass Anglers is a working-man's
fishing club and the main thing is to have fun, and
new members are always welcome. Club
president is Randy Smith and if you are interested
in joining you can contact Randy at 981-0520 for
more information or contact me at The Bassmens
Bait and Tackle Shop. Boaters and non-boaters
are both welcome.

40 meter net (7268hz) now opens daily at 7:45 EDT
with local weather, also gulf and carribean etc. as
needed. Then we handle general traffic for the
early birds, until 8 A.M. At this time we have a
formal agenda. Listen for and handle any
emergency or priority traffic. Next, our Fleet
Captain takes over and contacts and logs
positions of long distance cruising vessels. Then
thprp is a chance for boats in the Bahamas or the
.i )astal to give their positions. This helps
friiinus to meet each other or make hew friends.
Following this, Net Controller for the day handles
traffic between boats. After that, back to general
traffic. Net closes about 8:45 or when traffic is
concluded. There are generally several stations
standing by on this frequency on even hours
during the day to assist anyone in any way
needed. We have different net controls each day
of the week. Their QTHs(positions of amatuer
stations) vary from Anapolis to Texas and from
Turks-Cacoas area to Gulfport, Mi.

One of our active members has been cruising the
Ragged Islands and found 4 bales of "pot" on a
isolated beach. They cut open the bales and
scattered contents to the seas. When they
reported to police in Duncan Town, they were

We had years of sailing behind us, both racing
and some cruising, but bare boat chartering in the
Virgin Islands was a new experience. We had
visited Tortola, British Virgin Islands, last
summer, doing some sailing with our friends
Jeanne Lukas and Jack Pierce both former of
Fort Lauderdale. After that visit we knew we had
to go back.
Checking the ads in the national magazines we
knew the charter prices changed for the better in
August and proceeded to start calling around.
Some of the "deals" had so many strings attached
we began to ask what the hitch was before we
went any further. Some of the extras tacked on
were paying for a week's provisioning, renting a
windsurfer we wouldn't use, additional insurance
etc. We contacted Jess Taylor at Fort
Lauderdale's Sailboat South. We knew Jess and
trusted that things would be as he said.
We boarded our C. & C. Landfall 38, ANGORA, at
Yacht Haven, St. Thomas. Arrangements had
been made to sleep aboard the night before our
charter began. Besides being less expensive than
a hotel, it gave us a chance to check out what
might be needed on the boat. Since we have done
some cruising in our own boat and know our
needs, we opted to provision ourselves but that is
all we had to do.
We were met at the dock by an enthusiastic and
very knowledgeable young man, Dennis Cox, who
helped us aboard with our gear and gave us a
preliminary check out what we needed to know
for the evening.
ANGORA was beautiful, spic and span and
wonderfully equii pd. Dennis offered to spend as
much time with us as we needed but we were
anxious to explore cupboards and lockers, get
unpacked, have a rum and a good dinner, saving
our major check out for morning.
I was delighted upon opening every drawer. Not
only were there linens, towels and galley
equipment as promised, and everything was first
class full set of Club Aluminum for cooking,
Yachting Tableware, plenty of flatware, plastic
containers and all the gadgets anyone could
need. There was insect repellant and bug spray
(we never used either one). We found cleaning
supplies, binoculars, flashlight, first aid kit and
tools. We had a terrific stet ,d tape deck.
Dennis noticed the chimes on tht marine clock
were disconnected. We asked him to leave it that
way. Who cares what time it is? There was a great
deal of storage room, a satellite navigation.
system and hot water. Relaxing in the cockpit
that evening -what a view- huge cruise ships on
one side-thousands of pin-point lights in the
mountains of St. Thomas on the other.
Jeanne and Jack from Tortola took the morning
ferry to St. Thomas and we all went grocery
shopping. Prices are much higher than in the
states (1.79 for generic paper towels, but if you
know what you need it can be done without
too much hassle. Dennis gave us a thorough
check out, almost two hours, put the dinghy with
outboard in the water and we were off.
First stop, Soper's Hole in Tortola. Here was our
only surprise. Clearing customs in the British V.I.;
we were charged $4.00 per person per day for a
cruising permit. Had we done our homework a
little better we would have known as it is clearly
stated in the Cruising Guide. Jeanne and Jack live
on Frenchman's Cay (all Cays in the V.l.s are
pronounced key) and we had dinner at their place
- stuffing ourselves on fresh shrimp Jack's
favorite we had brought from Florida in a cooler.
We lay in Soper's Hole that night, then took off for
St. John's to visit Jeanne's daughter in Coral Bay.
We are now beginning to unwind and totally
forget the day to day grind. This is a day to reiax,
hang loose, snooze, swim, catch up on stories
The Virgin Islands are spectacular. The waters
clear and picture postcard blue. The mountains,
none above 2,000 feet, are not terribly high but
unbelievably steep. They rise abruptly out of the
sea. As a result anchorages are deep and you are
able to anchor quite close to shore. Everyone is
friendly, helpful, especially in the BVI's....and the
wind blows all thetime. What great placeto sail.
After leaving Coral Bay we headed for Norman
Island. There is a well sheltered anchorage in the
Bight. Norman Island is often referred to as the
"Treasure Island" of story fame. First dinghy trip
to the large caves where snorkeling is excellent.
Then rum drinks and lunch aboard the William
Thornton, a converted Baltic Trader built in 1910
and now a bar/restaurant anchored in the Bight
on Norman "Treasure" Island. Great lunch and
After dropping our friends at Nanny Cay on
Tortola where Jack runs a machine shop, Triton
Marine, we beat around the west end of Tortola
and anchored in Cane Garden Bay, a beautiful
anchorage, white sandy beach and swaying
palms. You've heard Jimmy Buffet's "Cheese
Burgers in Paradise"? He was here. We dinghied
ashore and had one. We meant to continue on the
next day but there came this little tropical wave si
we decided to stay put. There are unbelievably
steep roads on this island. We got a kick out of
watching vehicles laboring up the narrow road in
first gear headed for Ridge Road remembering
our white knuckle rides of last year.
The next day is hazy, always the ever present
wind, but no rain. We head for Trellis Bay on the
north side of Beef Island. Many years ago an
English lady raised cattle here. The Buccaneers
frequently raided her herds for fresh meat. One
day she invited them all to a big party, with a let-
by-gones-be-by-gones flavor. As the evening
progressed she poisoned all their drinks. No more
cattle raids...no more Buccaneers. Now Beef
Island has a small airport and is connected to
Tortola by a little toll bridge 25c.
in Trellis Bay is a tiny island called Bellamy Cay,
almost covered with a restaurant called The Last
Resort operated by an English couple, Tony and
Jackie Snell, and their donkey "Chocolate". The
V.I. Guide suggests reservations. We dinghied in
and made them. The Last Resort sort of looks like
it's name. We pushed past Chocolate grazing in
the front yard, trying to eat a customers's book,
and put our name on the list. Back to the boat for a
swim. Around 6:30 when the bar opened dinghies
came from the dozen or so boats in the bay. For
starters the bartender mixed the best Pina
Coladas we had ever tasted. Chocolate was led
through the room and put to bed. Homemade
pumpkin soup and salad were served. Then the
buffet simple, delicious (the highlight) melt in
your mouth roast beef and Yorkshire pudding.
Just after dessert, when Tony Snell was about to
proceed with what the book calls "his own brand
of entertainment", the generator went down. In
the lull, one of the guests, a shy young man from
France played classical guitar and you could
have heard a pin drop. Then the lights and Tony.
He poked fun at the charter game, boat captains,
the food, the hotels and himself. His parodies
were marvelous and we were weeping with
laughter. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.
We were still snickering the next day.
We then headed for Virgin Gorda, so named by
Columbus, who when approaching it from the
ocean side thought the island resembled a flat
woman lying on her back. This night we opted for
a slip at Virgin Gorda Yacht Harbour in St.
Thomas Bay. We needed ice, bread from their
bakery and water. Water is very dear in the
islands and you pay for every gallon. We knew
the marina had a desalinazation plant. The
famous Virgin Gorda Baths are just around the
corner. These are unusual formations of large
granite boulders that look as if a giant had
scattered them there. Sea water pools have
formed between the huge rocks and it is possible
to work your way around inside. The best time to
explore is early in the morning. Then you are
alone and it is as if you had discovered them
yourselves. By 10:00 the beach is full of dinghys
and people off cruising boats and some of the
Next stop, The Bitter End, a resort hotel on the
northern end of Virgin Gorda. Ten dollars allows
.you the use of a mooring and a garbage pick up.
We decided on dinner ashore, made reservations
by radio, and were asked to come ashore and
select from the menu before 5:00. An excellent
dinner in their clubhouse included fresh lobster
as well as other specialities.
Now we are anxious to anchor out again. The
wind was just right and we sailed past Ginger
Island to a lovely anchorage at Cooper Island,
Manchioneel Bay. A small club, Cooper Island
Beach Club, provided dinner, a spicy beef curry.
Our time was growing short so we headed back
for the American Virgin Islands to Cruz Bay at St
John's cleared customs and found a spot to
anchor. The harbor was crowded and surgy, but
it's a fun place to go ashore. Almost 2/3's of St.
John is protected as a National Park and the
Rangers schedule hikes and tours. The town of
Cruz Bay provides interesting shopping.
A night or two more in one of the many beautiful
bays of St. John's and we finally have to face the
fact that Angora isn't really ours and that we have
to take her back to St. Thomas. When we do it
again, and we will, there are a few things we will
do differently. We took half the clothes we took in
"84 and we should have cut that in half again. We
would plan our food a little differently, possibly
arrange for a minimal provisioning with the
charter company and avoid the grocery shopping
in St. Thomas. When we do it again, and we will,
we'll be sure and take the two weeks or even
more. We can't wait to do it again.

DON'T SIT, SKIPPER!
by Bill Lange
Accidents are very close to happening to you,
so do not continue to Steer Into Trouble (SIT),
Skipper. This sounds like a blanket accusation,
but aren't you possibly among the many I see
each week? A constant bearing means a
collision course, take preventive action.
As you read on it is up to you to visualize how
the accident will happen. For I am giving you only
the clues of the first symptoms. Of several
hundred boats which I get close to each year you s
falls into one of the four categories, each having
dangers particularly pertinent to the group.
There are the docked boats, the forklift launched
boats, the city ramp launchers, and the George
English or similar p irk launchers. Of course the
persons aboard also influence the type of danger.
Most can be specifically spotted as sailors,
macho power persons, divers, water skiers,
fishermen, pleasure-of-water cruisers, or
It used to be that the way to feel the drama of
the sea was to visit a salt water port. But now you
can note far more the frailties of the skippers by
spending two hours at a busy time at a city public
launching ramp, and then at the ICW 17th Street
bridge, and then at the point of the restaurant site
in Port Everglades.
Underway safety is violated and near misses
plentiful. How many keep a sharp 360 degree
watch? Close ahead are the things obscured by
water chop, i.e. logs awash, a manatee or a
human. There is the residual bow or stern wave
about to throw your helm out of control. There is
the liability suit resulting from your own wake.
There is the channel you have lost by not also
watching aids-to- navigation astern of you. There
are the bow-riding passengers, who are one
bump away from slipping overboard. Nothing
you can do will save themfror, your meat-ax
propeller or rudder.

Have you looked at your running lights?
Especially the combination type which you
repaired or cleaned recently? I see three or more a
day which are reversed. And of those I told to
about 15% were not sure which color went where.
RED is PORT (the short words relate), GREEN is
STARBOARD (the long words). That's a nice SIT
and a freebie for the maritime lawyer of the other
Are you really trying to make maritime lawyers
happy when their clients sue you? Some of you
are for I see you, and you are reported by vessels,
as you anchor to fish (and even at night!) at or
near Port Everglades sea buoy. In a navigable
waterway! Or near or even tied to various aids-to-
navigation. Guess who is at fault in any accident.
Then there's the underway of the ticking time
bomb. That is to say, the boater who fishes the
Gulf Stream or who succumbs to "Bimini or Bust",
yet is not qualified either as to navigational
ability or as to boat type and equipment --- and
may even do this without having an "Eye on the
Sky" as to weather. You are no skipper if you
have not studied boating weather and also made
your spot forecast. Call 1-800-336-BOAT yo ask
about the next free boating courses near you. For
the Gulf Stream is really an offshore and an open
water passage, frequently or suddenly
dangerous. If you do that often, get an EPIRB.
There is a major boating precaution which very
few take granted that it is not always simple to
implement. Namely, always file a FLOAT PLAN.
Leave a record of your boat identification, radio
call, probable trip and when you hope to arrive.
Leave the information with someone who will
note disappearance. Don't SIT, do something. I
have seen numerous Hobie Cats, overturned and
floating toward Newfoundland. Sure it was the
skipper's fault since "anybody knows how to
right a Hobie Cat". But those I saw did not! Most
observers saw and thought the Hobie was having
fun, then went home. As dusk approached the

exhausted skipper had little hope. We have even
had the recent case of a sail-boarder in a
No matter in what way you put to sea you
should have reserve drinking water. If there is a
delay in locating you that may save a life.
In fact your location is a matter to which you
should give much more attention. Quite a few
times a week in our area the USCG has to use RDF
to head toward a boater seeking assistance.
Often the skipper's report of his position is
considerably off. Such as "off Hillsboro" when he
is really off Boca. The guess as to distance
offshore is almost always much in error. Distance
is difficult to measure but you should practise
some scales to make a better guess. Also very
few of you are keeping a plot so that the current,
wind, speed and running time will make sense of
your location. Look back frequently or you will
never recognize the shoreline. And at night the
SIT factor will be extremely high if you have not
forced yourself to study and record location
facts. Study Waterfront News issue April 15-May
15, Volume 2 Issue 2 for details on what you see
when you look West.
Skippers of southeastern Florida have a major
SIT problem; divers. We have a particularly
lovely mix of sun, nice boating, long beaches with
heavy off-the-beach swimming and paddling,
tempting reefs full of sightseer things, and a very
large number of dive arrangements. You, skipper,
have the helm and the ultimate responsibility for
an accident. From the start at your dock until you
are again moored, look out for swimmers and
divers. Even well off the beach there are various
ways for persons to suddenly be under you, in the
area of any reef likewise, in waterski areas there
will be floaters. The bright diver-down flag may
be hard to see, or not in use, there may not even
be a tender boat. Very often the currents are
causing divers to surface far from their intended

point, sometimes losing their surface support.
Yet there is hardly a day when I do not see several
25 to far higher knot boats "having fun" parallel to
the beach, sometimes so close that kids in
inflatable floats are rocked.
While one does not hear much about it there is a
SIT numerous skippers face on all the categories
of boats I mentioned above. That is the injury to
someone on board by a fishhook. If not a fatal
matter, it is sometimes serious and always going
to spoil the voyage. Foot or hand are the most
frequent hooked. "The dolphin flopped around
and the hook got into my foot". "The hook caught
me as the fish got off the line and the hook
snapped back toward the boat". "The hooks on
the boat deck, in the well, were stepped upon", or
maybe "sat upon". You can call for EMS to meet
you at the dock, or even for a USCG helicopter, but
a visit to the hospital is usually needed.
Boats which are docked generally have more
room on board and so there is a place for
everything. In fact, the best -- often with a
permanent captain -- will have check lists,
prescribed locations, periodic tests, dinghy or life
raft loaded, emergency procedures. Yet it is
extremely rare to find a pleasure craft where
guests aboard are given a chance to learn what is
where and what to do. There is a Sit which you
should conscientiously and methodically handle,
skipper. Why not a "welcome aboard" spiel
(cassette or other) and a "hands on" practise?
Yes, even on some boats of this type I have
seen enough cases where the person guiding me
could not at first find the flares, or had difficulty
pulling the fire extinguisher out, or had
absolutely no idea of what to do or take should
"abandon ship" occur.
And I'll bet that 75% of you skippers, of all boat
categories, who are kind enough to pay close
attention to the WN boating safety articles will
trip up on the matter of Life Preservers! US Coast
Guard government gobbeldygook makes these
"Personal Floatation Devices", jpso facto "PFDs".
There are really three SITS likely to catch you on
the matter of PFDs: 1) PFDs are of doubtful use if
everything is piled on top of them (such as the
anchor, or a case of beer, or seabags of gear, or
what have you), 2)PFDs in their beautiful clean
original plastic wraps are of questionable
availability (try opening one super fast and
getting the straps to go as they are supposed to
do-- for even you the trained "expert"), 3) every
boat (no matter what kind you have) must have
one "throwable" PFD, it is called a Class IV PFD,
and it must be immediately available (that is at
hand and ready to be chucked). Launched boat
skippers are most likely to fall down on the PFD
points, but I have seen some rather sloppy
sailboat conditions. For these latter and for all
launched boaters the next article on SITs will
point at the very dangerous situations.

MARINE SAFETY REPORTING
A new voluntary program to predict hazards
and identify causes of marine accidents,
particularly when human error is involved, has
been initiated by the U.S. Department of
The program is called the Marine Safety
Reporting Program (MSRP) and is being managed
by DOT's Transportation Systems Center (TSC),
Cambridge, Massachusetts. Researchers at
Battelle Memorial Institute's Columbus
Laboratories are provided report and data
analysis under contract with TSC.
In the one-year demonstration project
beginning June 1, shipboard operating personnel
and others who are informed abo vessel
performance are invited to submit reports
describing potential unsafe situations or near-
accidents, how they were detected, and the
measures taken to manage the risk involved.
Persons reporting such incidents are guaranteed
Underlying project is the assumption that by
combining the maritime industry's keen interest
in safety with a program of voluntary,
confidential incident reporting, a great deal of
information can be collected, analyzed, and
distributed to all interested parties.
The project encompasses all types of safety-
related incidents, problems, or conditions.
Included are ship handling, aids to navigation,
weather reporting equipment performance, ship-
to-ship communications, chart accuracy and
other factors affecting vessel navagation and
The project is particularly interested in near-
mishap situations--those in which, for example, a
seemingly imminent accident is avoided through
extraordinary actions by vessel personnel.
Researchers will then analyze these reports to
extract, digest, and disseminate safety
information. As the database grows, it will
provide a detailed source of information for
research on vital safety issues and can be
analyzed to identify trends that are the result of
new or growing hazards.
In keeping with the anonymity guarantee, the
Coast Guard will not seek, nor will MSRP staff
release or make available to the Coast Guard,
information that might reveal the identity of any
party or vessel involved in a reported incident.
Thus, an MSRP report and all specific information
in a MSRP report is prohibited from use in any
disciplinary action by the Coast Guard.
Furthermore, if the Coast Guard, acting
independently from MSRP, finds a person in
violation in an incident which that person
reported to MSRP, civil penalty, under certain
circumstances, will be waived.
The only exception to confidentiality is a report
on some criminal activities which, by U.S. law,
must be forwarded to the U.S. Attorney. Such
reports are actively not encouraged, however.
The Marine Safety Reporting Program is based
on a similar program developed and proven
successful for air transportation: the Aviation
Safety Reporting System. That program has been
operated for ten years by the National
Aeronautics and Space Administration and the
Federal Aviation Administration, with Battelle
serving as the system contractor.
Although the programs are similar in concept,
practical differences between aviation and
marine systems set them apart. This one-year
demonstration period will evaluate the program's
practicality and acceptability in the marine

Swimming Hall Of Fame's
Dawson Is Co-Winner Of W.R.
William "Buck" Dawson of the International
Swimming Hall of Fame and Lee Williams of the
Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame have been
named co-winners of the first W.R. "Bill"
Schroeder Distinguished Service Award of the52-
member Association of Sports Museums and
Halls of Fame.
The announcement was made by M.H. Reid,
ASMHF president and director of the Hockey Hall
of Fame in Toronto. Schroeder, for whom the
award is named, was a pioneer in the sports-
museum field with his Helms Foundation and-is.
now director emeritus of the First Interstate Bank
Athletic Foundation in Los Angeles.
Dawson was the founding president of ASMHF.
Executive director of the Swimming Hall of Fame
in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., since 1963, he foresaw a
national organization of sports museums and
invited 12 directors to a meeting in Florida in 1971
to discuss the idea. Only two showed up. But he
stuck with the project and one year later, ASMHF
was officially formed at a meeting at the
Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.,
with Schroeder as president.
Dawson was just as persistent in building a
floundering Swimming Hall into a million dollar
operation. He was also very influential in the
preliminary stages of the American Swimming
Coaches Association and the National Swim and
Recreation Association. Dawson was the 1982
recipient of the R. Max Ritter Award, amateur
aquatic sport's most prestigious international
service award. He served three terms on the U.S.
Olympic Swim Committee and shares
responsibility in starting the women's national
collegiate and reviving national women's water
Co-winner Williams also was an early pillar of
ASMHF and was its 1974-75 president. The former
college coach became the Basketball Hall's
executive director in 1966, two years before there
was a building, and in his 19 years has seen it
grow from a hole in the ground to last June's
move to a $11.4 million museum. He retired this
year but will continue to assist the museum staff.
Williams has served as president of the
National Association of Basketball Coaches and
on the National Invitation Tournament and U.S.
Olympic Selection Committees. His other awards
include 1954 Maine Coach of the Year, 1967 NABC
Merit Award, 1968 Walter Brown Award for
contributions to New England athletics, and
induction into the Hall of Fame of Cortland State
University, Colby College and the National
Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics.
Williams will be honorary host in November
when ASMHF holds its annual convention at the
Basketball Hall of Fame. He and Dawson will
receive their awards at the President's Dinner the
night of November 13.

Swimming Hall of Fame Names
by Colleen Mahoney
(FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA--) The International
Swimming Hall of Fame's President, Dr. Harold
Henning, was announced the appointment of
William M. Humber, III of Birmingham, Alabama,
to the position of Executive Director. Humber will
replace the swim shrine's first and only Executive
Director William "Buck" Dawson upon his
retirement December 31, 1985.
According to Dr. James Counsilman, ISHOF
founding president and chairman of the search
committee, there were over 25 applicants for the
position-which Dawson has held since the swim
hall's opening in 1965. The announcement was
made at the Hall of Fame during the American
Swimming Coaches Association World Clinic
conducted for 900 coaches in attendance from
around the world.
As Executive Director for the International
Swimming Hall of Fame, Humber will be
responsible for the administration of the museum
and fundraising for the hall's addition, a project
initiated by the late John B. Kelley. Humber will be
the principal liaison with all elements of
swimming, diving, synchronized swimming,
water polo and the swimming pool industry.
Currently a resident of Birmingham, Alabama,
Humber has been a competitive diver since the
age of nine. He has been involved with the
Y.M.C.A. for the past 13 years, serving as
aquatic/executive director. Humber has coached
national champion divers, and his Y.M.C.A. swim
team won two national championships. He has
extensive sales, marketing and administrative
experience with some of the leading investment
and manufacturing firms in the Southeast.
Humber has written articles for Diving World
Magazine, numerous publications for the
Y.M.C.A. and has innovated many national
Y.M.C.A. programs. He is married and has three
