We wish to contribute to the future of our home
town in a positive way. We agree wholeheartedly
that our downtown area needs redevelopment for
at least 3 reasons;
1) To create a wholesome and safe core area of
our city; an area in which we may take
2) To increase the taxable base of the
downtown area which will relieve residential tax
subsidies from the surrounding communities.
3) Preserving the uniqueness and enhancing
the atmosphere of our riverfront as the focal point
of our city.
The fact that the downtown area straddles the
New River is of particular and specific interest to
our Association. Therefore the following
comments are aimed directly at the waterfront
areas of the proposed development scheme know
as the Riverwalk Project.
Sasaki Associates.has provided us with an
exciting concept. Our suggestions are offered to
further enhance this plan taking benefit of our
In conjunction with our schematic plan our first
area of attention is area "A", known as the 7th
Avenue Boat Ramp and Park:

With due respect to Sasaki's suggestions, the
almost unanimous opinion of the waterfront
residents is to maintain the boat ramps at the 7th
Avenue Bridge. Adding 22 City Dock slips will
foster a more secure environment in the boat
ramp area, a problem frequently voiced by area
residents when they were polled and/or
interviewed by their civic associations (Tarpon
River, Sailboat Bend, Waterfront Property
Owners and 'Riverside Park). A two-tiered
park/boat ramp arrangement will be an excellent
western terminus of the Riverwalk. A marine
patrol substation could logically be located in the
area, decreasing response time for the upper
reaches of the waterway system. Bathroom
facilities should be provided to accommodate
boaters, picnickers and Riverwalkers.
For Area "B" we suggest that the performance
area be built entirely on land; consideration
should be made not to disrupt the integrity of the
Riverwalk with its attendant flow of pedestrians.
Area "C" The New River Nautical Village
concept is a cluster of small shops and offices in a
waterfront setting, intended for private
development.The nautical theme is enhanced by
the raised deck creating an interior mall lead ing
out to the New River. The location and concept
will act as a magnet for centralizing and
attracting various marine services and related
The village is easily accessible both from the
water and land side. Along the New River there is
dockage for approximately 28 boats, while a
parking garage at the south end of the village,
just east of Fourth Avenue and S.W. 5th Street
provides ample parking.
The site will accommodate over 100,000 sq. ft. of
office and retail space which will generate over a
million dollars revenue annually. In addition to
shops, proposed uses include a marine
welcome/information station and marine
professional center for naval architects,
surveyors, yacht brokers, service brokers,
engineers, marine professional associations and
boating club meeting rooms.
For Area "D" we suggest that the Tidal Steps be
redesigned to continue the pedestrian flow of the
Riverwalk. Also give consideration to this park as
a bicentennial project.
Area "E" as proposed in the master plan
presents a hint of the character inherent to our
community. The proposal suggests the
placement of a boat basin in the area known as
Smokers Park. Our Association embraces an
even bolder plan to enhance the Riverwalk
atmosphere by proposing a Downtown Marina.
A marina dredged to a depth of 10' providing
some 2-00 additioria[ slips will help relieve our
overburdened residential waterfront
neighborhoods. People will be attracted to the
"south" Riverwalk by inviting internationally
acclaimed events such as S.O.R.C., billfish
tournaments, and offshore powerboat races.
Historically Fort Lauderdale has been a boating
community and will remain so. Let us capitalize
on this asset by encouraging an attractive
Ample parking for the marine facility is
provided to the south and east. Office space on
the south perimeter could house the
dockmaster's office, -showers/bathrooms and
other related activities. We encourage the
installation of a waste pump-out station on the
northeast corner of the marina. Surrounded by
these ancillary facilities the marina would
provide a south bank Riverwalk destination atthe
east and the Nautical Village would create a
destination at the western end. Consider the
advantages of utilizing our unique asset from
both sides of the New River.
Attractions such as the Performing Arts Center.
Historic District and Las Olas Multi-use District
will provide Fort Lauderdale with a downtown
atmosphere second to none.
Let us take one further step. The New River is
the focal point of the Riverwalk Project and, as
such, should be properly balanced. We strongly
suggest, like the North Bank, the South Bank
should contain destination points and supporting
attractions. Fort Lauderdale's master plan should
take advantage of international recognition as
"the" boating community and retain a major boat
basin as presented in illustration "E". Fort
Lauderdale's Downtown Marina will become the
true welcome mat to the international yachting
The site of the Downtown Marina is owned by
Broward County. Excavation of the site will be
completed by private enterprise for no cost in
exchange for the fill. Monies for the actual
construction of the facilities can be provided from
the Federal, Aquatic Resources Trust Fund
(Wallop-Breaux Fund). Additional monies are
available for this type of project from the
Broward County Boating Improvement Fund.
Approximate income from the dockage alone will
exceed $1,800,000.00 per year (200 x 50 x .50 x 30 x

Letters 4 WATERFRONT NEWS
Dear Mr. Ziegler:
Janine Rofe's letter, Waterfront News, Oct. 15-
Nov. 15, 1985, P.2,castigating the use of the title
"Venice of America" to describe Fort Lauderdale
because she says we do not have the "cafes, art
galleries and museums" of the Venice of Italy
gives me mixed feelings of astonishment at, and
pity for, this woman who cannot fine "interesting
and comfortable places to meet new people".
Where has she been in the last ten years? There is
such an abundance of places to go and things to
-do, both in the City and the County, right at this
very moment in time, that it would be impossible
to begin to cover them. On top of that, the new
Museum with its emphasis on people places like
the sculpture garden will be on stream in less
than 90 days and, of course, the new performing
arts center will be a few years down the road.
In the meantime I should ask whether the lady in
question has been at all part of the answer to
some of her questions. Has she participated? Has
she been part of Octoberfest? Promenade,
Discovery Center, Stranahan House, Parker
Theater, etc., etc., etc.?
Forgive me for being so chauvinistic, but I think
Fort Lauderdale is a vibrant, active, wonderful
setting to live and work, easily comparable or
superior to any other city of its size, and, when
you toss in the other activities that are within a 35
or 40 minute drive, (less than it takes to go
downtown in many large cities), you would have
to be a very energetic person, completely retired,
and requiring very little sleep, to begin to exhaust
the cultural possibilities.

A speed-limit of 30 mph on the Intracoastal is
simply the wrong answer to a very serious
problem. A 30 mph speed limit, by itself, would
accomplish very little; other than encourage
everyone to, run as close to 30 mph as they can
get. Although I'm sure that many of your readers
can, I cannot in my 30 years of boating experience
recall having ever been endangered by a boat
travelling over 30 mph. However; I do not have
enough fingers and toes to count the number of
times I have been endangered by boats travelling
under 30 mph, but throwing huge wakes.
A few weeks ago, I was thrown to the floor of
the cockpit of my thirty foot sailboat by the wake
of a 70 foot powerboat which was passing me on
the right in a congested area at about 15 to 20
knots, throwing a monster wake. This was the
second time a wake has knocked me down since I
moved here seven years ago. The first day I
entered the Ft. Lauderdale sector of the
Intracoastal, I was knocked to the floor of the
cockpit of my 27 foot Cheoy Lee by a wake.
Because of the incredibly poor seamanship of a
few boaters in thisarea, I have found that the best
time to go cruising is during small craft warnings
or storm warnings. They keep many of the sea-
going bulldozers at home, and the seas make the
wakes of the rest of them less noticeable.
In a land vehicle traffic is controlled in heavily
congested areas, areas with many
intersections, and residential areas, by severely
limiting the speed. Wake is the Intracoastal's
equivalent of snow and ice. Wake is what limits
the small boat controlability. The Intracoastal is
the boaters street. It is heavily congested, has
many uncontrolled intersections, does not have
dividing lines or no-passing lanes, and is lined
with parking spaces and residences. Allowing
boats to produce large wakes on the Intracoastal
represents irresponsible policy with reckless
disregard for the welfare of all who use it.

Waterway Cleanup '86
by M.G. Swift
The Fort Lauderdale Jaycees in conjunction
with the Marine Industries Association of South
Florida (MIA) and the city of Fort Lauderdale want
to make the city shine for it's 75th birthday next
spring. Waterway Cleanup '86 will be one of many
events sponsored by numerous groups of the
"Make It Shine" project.
Annual waterway cleanup used to be under-
taken by the M.I.A. and the Jaycees want to
revive this constructive tradition with Waterway
Cleanup '86. Scheduled for March 8, 1986 eight
locations along Fort Lauderdale's waterfront will
be chosen to be cleaned up. A committee of city,
community and industry people is currently
considering potential site locations.
Organizers are planning to have a kickoff
party, a "treasure hunt" during the operation and
a post-cleanup celebration for the participants
along with over 500 T-shirts for the cleanup
For more information call Roger Topalian with
the JayCees at 922-7575 or Tony DiPinto at 463-
2700. Small boats and cleanup crew members are
badly needed. Make it shine along Ft.
Lauderdale's waterfront March 8th.
A strictly enforced no-wake law for all of the
Intracoastal would benefit everyone and
inconvenience no one. Those who are restricted
to Intracoastal travel by sizp, equipment or
weather could travel it safely; seawalls would be
protected; waterway residents could dock their
boats at home (try that now!); noise levels would
be dramatically reduced; accidents would be
much more easily handled.
Wakes, of course, are not strictly a function of
speed. Displacement, waterline length, and hull
design contribute significantly to how much
wake a boat produces. A boat moving at less than
its theoretic displacement speed (approx 1.4
times the square root of its waterline length) will
produce minimum wake. Hence a fifty footer can
cruise safely at 10 knots. It is quite unreasonable
and irresponsible for that same fifty footer to
cruise at 13 or 14 knots on the Intracoastal,
gaining a very small increase at the considerable
expense of everyone who must deal with his
mammoth wake, not to mention the fact that it
shows irresponsibility in that any increase in
speed above displacement speed increases fuel
By the same token, extremely light and wide-
beamed hulls produce very little wake at planing
speeds, as demonstrated by inflatables and
prams zipping along causing no one any
For those who would scream about
government encroachment and loss of freedom,
there's a whole ocean out there to speed on. Of
course, there isn't as big an audience for their
post-pubescent, or mid-life crises ego massages,
but that doesn't really matter. The law won't
affect those who ignore school speed zones
anyway. They speed in their cars and pay the
fines; they'll do the same in their boats.
But for those of us who live within the law, let's
ban wakes on inland waterways, and make it
more pleasant for everyone.

Ft. Lauderdale Acts On Key
by M.G. Swift
December 3rd, 1985 was perhaps a historic day
for Fort Lauderdale's waterfront community. The
City Commission reviewed and set hearing for the
proposed Riverwalk plans, o.k.ed side-yard
setback exemptions of boats docked along
Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice, and reaffirmed
the no carry-outs ban for beach fast food
Riverwalk Hearing Set For
The day began early for the Fort Lauderdale
City Commission as spokesmen for Sasaki
Associates presented to the commission and the
public gathered there the consulting firm's final
recommendations on the Riverwalk Plan. "A
marketing concept...not fixed in concrete,"
Richard Galehouse (with Sasaki) described the
Riverwalk Plan. Encompassing the north and
south bands of the New River from Southwest 7th
Avenue (the boat ramps) to Southeast 8th Avenue
(the Riverside Hotel) and from Broward Blvd. to
6th Street-the Riverwalk Plan would,according
to Sasaki, preserve and enhance the ambiance of
the Waterfront while at the same time interg rate
river more with the downtown, Museum of Art,
Historic District, proposed Performing Arts
Center and Las Olas Blvd. (See "Riverwalk
Project", Waterfront News, November 15-
December, 1985, page two, columns two and
The "final" plan presented to the city
commissioners would have a price tag of around
$18,000,000 in public outlays spread out over a
fifteen year period (1985-2000). Sasaki projects
that as much as $371,000,000 in private
investment could be attracted by an ongoing
Riverwalk Project during that same time. Similar
undertakings in cities such as Charleston, South
Carolina and Toledo, Ohio have profitably created
better images for those waterfronts. With the use
of "landmark structuring" at Sailboat Bend the
city could design and build a Performing Arts
Center that Sasaki suggests would rival Sydney,
Australia's waterfron Opera House or Baltimore's
bayside Aquarium complex.
Reflecting the input of such groups as Riverside
Park, Sailboat Bend and Tarpon River Civic
Associations and the Fort Lauderdale Waterfront
Property Owners Association (See letter to the
Editor, page two) Sasaki's designers resurrected
the Seventh Avenue Boat Ramps and added a
marine village" on the south bank of the New
River. A downtown marina on the current site of
Smokers Park was not included in Sasaki's plan,
despite heavy- lobbying by the Ft. Lauderdale
Waterfront Property Owners Association on
behalf of such a facility.
The Waterfront property owners along with the
rest of the citizenery of Fort Lauderdale will have
a chance to provide some further "local
knowledge" to the Riverwalk Plan at a series of
public hearings and workshops -slated for
January 1986. (Call the city manager's offices for

The city commission voted to exempt boats
docked along Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice
from sideyard set-backs restrictions. Boat and
property owners persuaded the city that
enforcement of sideyard setbacks would
eliminate as many as 150 boat slips from along
the two streets and cause undue economic
hardship on the neighborhood.
Other areas of the city which would want to be
exempt from the set-backs will have to go
through the-Planning and Zoning Boardand the
City Commission for approval. Hendricks Isle and
Isle of Venice have been embroiled with the city
and adjacent neighborhoods over sideyard
setbacks, liveaboards and fire lines for the past
Beach Carry-Out Ban Reaffirmed
The city commission voted not to lift the ban on
carry-out food and containers for the
MacDonald's on Fort Lauderale Beach. The
corporation's lawyer attempted to have the
commission table his client's request until
December 17th, but because of the large turnout-
of beachfront residents at the meeting the
commissioners elected to consider the matter in
conference. After viewing a multi-media
presentation by Ron Mastrian, the attorney
representing the fast food chain, and hearing the
views of the citizens, the commission sided with
those opposed to lifting the ban on carry-outs.
The day ended late for the Fort Lauderdale City
Commission, but it was a very productive dayfor
the waterfront community. Several scores were
settled and plans for the future were unveiled.
Much is left to be done. The ball is now in the court
of those who live and/or use the waterfront.

Health Watch Abbreviations,
Jargon, And Lingo
by Donna Hessman, R.N.
When John entered his sloop into the SORC, he
was glad to know his RDF and Loran were in good
working order. Got that? Good. But during the
race John was injured on board and taken to
BGMC. The ER RN told John he would be NPO and
his vitals would be taken qth. A Stat Cat scan was
ordered andan Astra 6 would be drawn. Also he
was informed that if his I 0 dropped, he might
need an IV PRN! But before the RN could do
anything to John, she said she needed his HMO or
BCBS number. John was sure he had arrived, via
ambulance into the Twilight Zone.
He wondered what it felt like to be NPO'd since
the closet he'd ever been to NPO's was KO'd once.
He didn't want too many vitals taken from him
since he didn't know how many he had to begin
with. A Stat Cat scan reminded him of his fat cat
but now his mind was playing tricks on him.
Besides, if the RN had time to draw an Astra 6
(which probably resembled a DC7) he couldn't be
that bad off. But what if his I 0 did drop?
Hopefully, it won't break, he thought. And please,

no IV PRN for me today, he lamented, what ever it
is, I don't want it.
Wait, John realized happily. I don't know my
HMO or BCBS number. And even if I did, he
thought, I'm pleading the FIFTH!

Sailor Catches Sailfish
by M.G. Swift
The big winner of the Second Annual Sailboat
Fishing Tournament was the National
Neurofibromatosis Foundation. Eighteen
sailboats entered in the competition Saturday,
November 16th and brought quite a catch.
Besides the over $600 sponsors netted for the
charity, anglers brought in sailfish, tuna, dolphin,
kingfish, barracuda, bonito and a multitude of
Bahia Mar's H-Dock was a buzz with news that
one of the sailboats had landed a sailfish, the first
ever in Sailboat Fishing: Tournament history.
Another radioed the weighin station-manned by
the HollyWood Sportman's Club-that the crew
had caught four dolphin. A large tuna had been
hauled in. As always the radio chatter among
these angling sailors was spirited. Even those
who were lamenting overthe "ones that got away"
were comparing notes with their comrades
reference to weed lines, what was hitting etc.
Last year the weighin was conducted at a
raftup in Lake Sylvia under a drizzly shroud of
gray clouds. This time the end of H-dock was
jammed with sailing anglers, their crews,
families, the tournament officials and the press.
True, the sailfish Ed Ludemann caught on
Captain Jim Rillera's Free Spirit weighed only five
pounds but it made page two of the next
morning's Miami Herald. And Ed's smile is the
bottom line of what the Sailboat Fishing
Tournament is all about. Sailor Ed had never gone
fishing off a sailboat before much less,,catch,a,
sailfish. And there were fisherman who had never
sailed before-new horizons.
Captain Bill Stolberg and his crew aboard a 29
foot Warrior Catamaran were disappointed that
one of their four dolphins didn't qualify at the
weighin. Still, they were visibly excited about the
Sailboat Fishing Tournament and were going to
tell their sailing friends about the sport: Bill has

Plane Becomes Artificial Reef
FORT LAUDERDALE -- Fulfilling a commitment
made at its grand opening a year ago, Marriott's
Harbor Beach Resort sank a DC-4 aircraft as an
The vintage World War II airplane became the
first artificial reef of its kind as it was laid to rest
Saturday, November 23, in 70 feet of water off Ft.
Lauderdale's coast (260 06'44" North Latitude, 80
04' 24" East Longitude), between Las Olas &
The former Air Force airplane that flew the
Berlin Airlift, was originally scheduled to be
dropped into the sea by a giant skycrane
helicopter as part of the resort's opening
activities in November 1984. The move was
scuttled at the last moment when the Defense
Department vetoed use of the helicopter
belonging to the Alabama National Guard.
"The reef is our gift to the community," says
Ezzat Coutry, general manager of Marriott's
Harbor Beach Resort. "The environmental
benefits will last well into the next century. When
our original plans were cancelled, we were
determined to find another way of getting that
airplane into the ocean."
Coordinated by the Broward County Artificial
Reef Program, a multitude of private, municipal
and Port authorities cooperated to transport the
plane to Port Everglades. Its 94 foot length and 18
foot height necessitated closing Federal Highway
and moving traffic lights and power lines to make
the journey possible.
Marriott's Harbor Beach Resort contracted
with a salvage company, Ship, Captain & Crew to
bring the plane by barge from the Port to the reef
site where it was dropped by crane into the sea.
The plane, to be known on navigational charts
as the Marriott Reef, will provide a safe diving
site, as well as a fishing reef.

Hammerhead Reef/ What Is Its
by Bryan Brooks
Sweet Pea slowly emerges from the coral ledge
and swims toward Captain Tony George. She
stops and looks at Tony. He carefully puts his
hand up and strokes her sides as she slithers
past. She goes into another coral ledge but
emerges again immediately. This process goes
on for about five minutes as the divers watch
Sweet Pea is a five foot moray eel that inhabits
the third reef off John U Lloyd State Park which is
located just south of Port Everglades in about
sixty feet of water. Divers call the reef in that area
Hammerhead Reef. The name came from Captain
Tony himself. About fifteen years ago he was
drifting over the third reef ledge system. He found
.this incredible area with abundant schools of
spade fish, grunts and almost any variety of fish
found anywhere else in the Caribbean. He came to
an end of the drift near some coral he would later
call the Two Split. He surfaced and wrote down
the markings. On the next trip he found a
hammerhead shark cruising over this beautiful
section and from then on it came to be known as
Down through the years Captain Tony and his
close friend Captain Joe Schirck took hundreds of
divers'to Hammerhead Reef and they wereoable to
witness the moray eels being fed by these two
Fort Lauderdale dive pioneers.
:On an ABC. television program "Those
Incredible Animals" a crew was sent here to film
Captain Joe and his special six foot friend Oliver.
Sadly though, a short while later Oliver was found
by Captain Joe and Chris Brooks with a hole in.his
head. It became clear that maybe taming wild
creatures carries a penalty, a penalty for the
wild creature. When tamed they lose their fear of
Man. It has always struck me as strange that
people are so spooked by sharks, barracuda and
moray eels. To the bestof my knowledge none of
these creatures have ever crawled up on the
corner of Las Olas and Atlantic Boulevard and
attacked anybody. On the other hand, Man
seems to enjoy going on their turf and killing
Since that time Captain Tony and Captain Joe
have befriended three more eels. One is Sweet
Pea, another is Heathcliff and the oldest-and by
far the biggest-is Wendel. Wendelis well over
seven feet long with a twenty inch girth.
The problems is now that diving has become so
popular in .our community (which is good) that
other divers have also found Hammerhead. Not
all of the divers are as decent and kind as Captain
Tnon 2ndr Pantain Ino Aprnrrinn tn thoca man
least undeveloped. Another reason is because of
the high interest in diving now through the
Mercedes and the other fine wrecks.Week of the
Ocean feels because of this the area should be set
aside as a Sanctuary from hunting or any other
abuse. There are plenty of other beautiful reefs
and wrecks that divers are free to loot and
plunder as some seem destined to do.
Another reason is that Hammerhead and Cuda
Reef's are just outside Port Everglades where the
pollution from 28 cities and an over developed
county comes out. Making this area a Sanctuary
would serve notice that we have admitted to
ourselves that finally we will have to face the fact
that we are turning this area into a toliet and are
leaving a testament of concrete and steel for our
children to call home.
In talking with Captain Tony about the project
he has mixed feelings. He sees the Park idea as.
more and more divers coming to his beloved
Hammerhead Reef and bothering :his eels.
Perhaps he is right. He thinks the area is so small
that making that area in front of Lloyd Park a
Sanctuary would only increase the anchor
damage and divers in that area; some of the
divers it seems have the mentality of being on a
search and destroy mission. He and Captain Joe
were feeding the eels of Hammerhead when most
divers were still in grade school so perhaps it
would be wrong to have government
ON the other hand, how do you call attention to
an area and let people know that the Keys aren't
the beginning and end of coral life in America.
How do you let people know that there are those
of us who aren't willing to write Fort Lauderdale
off as a victim to urbanization and concrete.
It's an interesting question. Week of the Ocean
would be interested in your opinion of whether to
continue in an attemptto make Hammerhead Reef
into a Sanctuary or let Man and nature take its
predictable course. Please write your opinions in
care of Waterfront News. Thank for your interest.
Remember the little patch of Mother Ocean off
our coast belongs to you as well. Get interested.

Undersea Journeys Bring Visitors
Close Up Views Of Teeming Coral
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Undersea journeys
across the "ocean" floor will give Walt Disney
World visitors a close-up view of a Caribbean
coral reef teeming with colorful creatures four
fathoms deep in "The Living Seas."
This. newest Epcot Center pavilion, presented
by United Technologies Corporation, will open
January 15 in Future World. It will be the largest
facility ever dedicated to exploring man's
relationship with the ocean.
The Living Seas' main "ocean", 200 feet in
diameter and 27 feet deep, will duplicate the
chemistry and life-support systems of a
Caribbean reef. Its nearly six million gallons of
seawater will contain more than 2,000 crokers,
snappers, dolphin, angel fish, sharks,
barracudas and diamond rays -- all the creatures
that inhabit a coral reef community.
The "world's sixth largest ocean" is only one of
the pavilion's many features. At Seabase Alpha,
visitors to the Living Seas will see underwater
motion pictures and video shows where they can
communicate directly with scientists and
researchers working underwater.
There also will be hands-on activities, an
opportunity to touch and see fish and mammals
and displays of ocean technologies, past, present
Traveling in gondolas through an undersea
tunnel, guest "explorers" will see the ocean world
through large acrylic windows. At the end of their
gondola ride they will enter the Seabase Alpha

and video presentations will encourage guests to
learn more about latest developments in ocean
technology and exploration.
The Living Seas coral reef is contained in a
giant aquarium within a 170,000-square foot
structure under a single roof where climate,
chemistry and lighting are completely controlled.
It also :includes a restaurant, theater,
experimental laboratories and specialized salt-
An upper-level observation "bubble" in the
center of the main ocean will give visitors a
panoramic view of the Caribbean reef. It is
reached by walking through a second underwater
tunnel where guests can enjoy a longer look at the
creatures of the reef through clear acrylic picture
As visitors enter the pavilion, they will pass a
rockwork structure which suggests a natural
coastline with waves cascading into tidepools. A
curved wall with a 125-foot-long mural will lead
guests into historical displays of period
photographs and artifacts which.begin the story
of man's quest to unlock the secrets of the deep.
Included are Leonardo da Vinci's sketches of
underwater breathing devices and submersibles,
John Lethbridge's diving barrel, Frederic de
Drieberg's 1809 breathing device and a diving suit
from Walt Disney's film, "Twenty Thousand
Leagues Under the Sea."An 11-foot-long model of
the "Nautilus" submarine used for key sequences
of the movie also will be on display.
Guests will then enter a 185-seat theater for a
film focusing on the vital link between the ocean
and man's survival.
Following the film, theater doors will open and
visitors will enter three "Hydrolators," elevator-

Also in the visitor center, a cold-water kelp
tank and Pacific Coast tidepool will showcase
plants, fish and invertebrates of eco-systems
outside tropical waters.
Large-screen video shows will dramatize
man's attempts to harness the ocean's resources
for medical, mineral and energy uses. Other mini-
shows explore manned and robotic undersea
systems as examples of technological advances.
One film, titled "An Animated Atlas of the World,"
shows recent studies of earth systems and their
application to the seas in understanding weather
forecasting and geological exploration.
The terraced Coral Reef Restaurant will provide
guests with an underwater panoramic view of the
living reef. Crystal-like viewing windows, eight
feet high and more than eight inches thick, are
among the largest acrylic castings ever made.
In presenting the pavilion, United technologies
demonstrates its commitment to research and
development. The company ranks seventh
among U.S. corporations in R & D spending --
more than $1-billion in 1984.
Show designer Tin Delaney points out that
"unlike existing aquariums or sea parks, The
Living Seas will focus on better understanding of
the oceans as an incredible resource for man.
This focus," he says, "will help make the pavilion
an exciting adventure for people of all ages."

opened in June, 1982, as part of the regional park
expansion authorized by the 1978 Bond Issue. Its
facilities include picnicking, pedal boat and
canoe rentals, and racquetball and tennis courts.
It is intended to be the gateway to the large West
Lake Tract of over 1200 acres that became part of
the Broward County Park system in May, 1985.
Best Free Show In Town
by Allan Sosnow
A joint effort of the Port Everglades Authority
and Florida Power and Light Company has
resulted in the development of a new Sea Life
Viewing Area at the intake canal of FPL's Port
Everglades power plant.
This facility includes a parking lot, picnic area
with tables, boardwalk and viewing overlook,
landscaping (donated by Stranahan High
School's Horticultural class), manatee and fish
The new design in the fencing increases the
viewing area as well as the opportunity to feed
the many species of fish. Both organizations
discourage the feeding of manatees.
The animals in the viewing area are free to
come and go through a series of four 12 foot
diameter culverts but prefer to stay in this area
because of an ample food supply that results
from food carried in by the 1.5 million gallons of
water per minute used to cool the plant's
condensers, a natural mini reef and the food
visitors offer these animals.
Studies indicate that over 120 species of fish
can be seen in this area throughout the year.
Multicolored parrot- fish, sergeant majors,
queen angelfish and three manatees are among
the year round inhabitants.
This area was formally presented to the
people of Broward County on November 5,1985 at
11:00 a.m. by an official ribbon cutting ceremony
attended by Port and Florida Power and Light
Company officials. It is anticipated that this
attraction will be visited by over 150,000 people
through the course of the year, many of whom
are school children from the local area.

ASK BIG AL
Just bought a boat, twin engines, with just the
basics in equipment. Would like to get all the
safety items I need without all the frills. What
should I buy?
You say you got the basic equipment with the
boat but not what you did get. I would advise you
to get a Courtesy Marine inspection at a Coast
Guard anex station. You will'get a list of what you
should have plus a check on what you do have. I
would also get a good ship to shore radio plus an
engine & mechanical check out.
I have a 24 foot boat with a single engine 1.0. Its
a V8 with plenty of guts, but the boat digs in &
won't plane. Would trim tabs help/
Trim tabs would help, but before I put them on I
would first check a few things. When was the
bottom cleaned & painted? A fouled hull will
cause drag & the boat will not get up on plane. Too
much weight in rear of boat. (people, fuel, equip,
coolers etc.) will cause the boat to dig in also. Try
moving equipment and weight up to the bow & see
if that helps. I'n some cases a full tank of fuel is
the boat will cause problems of planing. Try
lightning the load the boat has to carry before
I bought a used sailboat and frankly my wife
and I are worried about it. In even a lite breeze she
heels way over, gunnels under water I'm afraid
she'll capsize in a heavy wind. Can you help?
My expertise in marine engines won't help you
in sailing. But I have a motor sailer I love to sail.
So here goes. First I would get an expert sailor to
sail with me to advise me about the sails I am
using with my hull. I also would check my keel to
see if I had the correct weight ratio. More weight
would make a stiffer boat. Too much sail can also
lay your boat over. Get an expert in a good sailing

The 15Th Street Navy: Always On
by Bill Lange
Skippers of the Waterfront News area often see
Port Everglades hosting liberty visits by NATO
and U S Navy vessels. One should also note that
our own fleet -- the 15th Street navy, is always on
From a safety and security aspect boaters
needing to know the local present sea conditions,
or needing emergency assistance, have a truly
"on scene" resource. For the 15th Street navy,
from its principal base of Fort Lauderdale's 15th
Street Launching Ramps, roams far and wide.
Some of these vessels are commerical and likely
to be in the offing at any time. Mostly these
skippers quarter the latitudes from North Miami
to Boynton Beach, knowing very well the
vicissitudes of the Gulf Stream and the potential
soltitude of the Bermuda Triangle. Without
uniforms or taxpayer money they follow the
unwritten law of the sea when a vessel needs aid.
So when you have a doubt as to whether it is
safe to go out Government Cut you had best stay
inside if skippers of the 15th Street navy are not
Or when you are offshore and have a distress
situation a skipper of this group may hear it, or
even see it, quicker than the USCG. A future
WaterFront News article will point out the
importance of having VHF on your boat, and
describe a typical MAYDAY or PAN PAN case. For
the 15th Street navy can be a critical relay
station, or a reporter, or even first-to-arrive at
So practice listening up to these boats. Many
have VHF hearing Channel 16, but very frequently

Wahoo! The Line Sizzles
by Bill Rhodes
In the late fall and early winter months we fir
larger numbers of Wahoo close to and often
times, on the reef. Schools of migrating baitfis
and small Bonito or Tuna attract these speech
When one is hooked you can easily see how I
got his name. Built for speed thesetorpedo shape
pelagic gamefish can travel up to 35 miles pc
Usually they take several tackle testing rur
sometimes stripping 250 or more, yards of line;
a time. Get ready!
World renown boat builder Bill Aman alone
with Captain Harry Hamilton and son Johnn
recently caught a couple of nice Wahoo during th
Dones Marina Fishing Tournament. After sever
cutoffs using monofilament leader they change
to light wire and landed a dandy 37 pounder. Thi
fish earned young John first prize in his division
for the tournament.
The previous cutoffs were thought to be th
ever present Barracuda and there was little
concern at the time. But after John's fish wa
landed they realized that these lost strikes coul
have been Wahoo also.
B -ir L
the best fishermen _"
in Florida got their tackle
at Boyd .
They still do.
Because Boyd's has always been what fishing and fishermen are all about.
"Shorty"rigs baits with a surgeon's skill. Joanne wraps custom rods with the touch
of an artisan. And it's all done to the background crackle of the V.H.F. The tackle is
state-of-the-art. In short, Boyd's gives you what you can't get anywhere else: an old
style friendly tackle shop with all the savvy and experience of 41 years. Next time

Later Bill landed a 26 pounder on a live Bonito.
It seemed that the Wahoo were feeding on the
schools of small Bonito. They slow/trolled back
and forth from 100 to around 400 feet of water.
The small "Bullet" Bonita were easily caught by
trolling fast with small yellow jigs. As soon as the
bait was brought to the boat it was rigged.
| When rigging these small live baits one must
handle them carefully. Using a wet towel and not
gripping them too tightly helps. These active little
rascals are difficult to keep alive in a live bait well
so it's best to rig them immediately and begin
A double hook rig insures more hook ups. One
hook through the lips, the second hook (stinger)
S near the tail works fine.
Many times the fish will be hooked on the
second hook because the Wahoo, or even
Kingfish, strike incredibly fast and tend to cut the
bait in half. This is where the trailing hook, or
stinger gets them.
Aman's crew took.second over all in the
tournament and was awarded some fine prizes.
Dones Marina plans to do it again next year. Plan
on fishing this one for lots of refreshments, food
A week later the same crew landed two 29
pounders,this time trolling live goggle eyes. A 31
pound Barracuda was also taken'.
Another nice Wahoo of 35 pounds was caught
near the Hollywood outfall in eighty feet of water.
nd Tom Van Osdale of Plantation caught this one
en slow trolling a live Blue Runner.
sh This is also a good method for catching
dy Kingfish. Even as shallow as 50 feet large
"snoker" Kings are caught by live bait, slow
he trolling. Sailfish, Dolphin and large Tuna also fall
ed prey to this technique.

SALT WATER FISHERY
by Rollie Franzen vsu
The total failure of saltwater fishery
management by federal and state authorities; the
disastrous consequences of permitting
authorities responsible for conservation of the 1
resource (a legitimate governmental function) to FT. LA
also act as subsidizers, efficiency experts,
market research, product development and
marketing agents for the super-exploitive
elements of the commercial fishery (not a
legitimate governmental function); and allowing
such special interests membership on
management councils and commissions has been
tragically illustrated by an August 8,1985 release
by National Marine Fisheries Service, Southeast M
Region, and the latest king mackerel stock BOAT
assessment. BUILD YC
That release stated that, effective September
22 based upon "recent scientific information", the
maximum sustainable yield ("the average of the /FOO
largest catch that can be taken from a stock
without hurting the average population of the For
stock") should be reduced from 37 million pounds
to 26.2 million pounds, and that "the best
scientific information available indicates thatthe Call the W,
Gulf Group is substantially overfished" and pa a
therefore the catch should be reduced 22% to place a Cl
14,225,000 pounds. ..
But now, prior to the effective date of that
approved plan, a more recent new stock
assessment indicates the allowable biological W E A
catch for the Gulf Group to be only 1 to 2.34 million
pounds. W ITH
What that means is that the once super-
abundant king mackerel fishery has been
"managed" to a state of virtual collapse by those
who refused Florida League of Anglers' urging to Ml
ban the exploitive nets that caused the collapse.
Also painfully obvious are the consequences of
fishery management based on the best scientific
information available and the concept of (No reason
maximum sustained yield and scientific theories
.--.based on computerized formulae, curves and
TMrodels. This is not to say that scientific data
collection should not be continued and improved
upon, but is a recognition of the fact that the
nature of scientific discovery pertaining to the
fishery is laboriously slow in producing the facts
needed for accurate assessment- and the fish can't
Therefore, in the interim, much more emphasis Mack-S
must be placed upon the firsthand observations
of knowledgeable and credible fishermen so that 10(
managers can react more readily to observed Fort
abundance or lack thereof.
Florida League of Anglers finds little
satisfaction in the fact that these specific points
and consequences are precisely the ones about [(
which it has consistently warned fishery
management authorities from Tallahassee to
Washington, which unheeded have produced
the collapse of one of Florida's most renowned
fisheries the king mackerel.
While, understandable, Florida League of
Anglers had to earn credibility, it would appear
that it has amply demonstrated not only its
credibility, but its ability to foresee problems and --
predict consequences in this case and in matters
of law, as substantiated by the Supreme Court in
the Livings case.
The bottom line is that an intolerable conflict of
interest exists when commercial fishing interests i
sit in judgment on fishery management councils '
and commissions that assures the collapse not
only of Florida's $5 billion recreational fishery but
its commercial fishery as well.
It now remains to be seen whether the National A large Fabric and Carlp
Marine Fisheries Service's Southeast Regional Week at Cable Marine E
Director, aided by commercial interests on the Appliance, Accessory an
federal management councils, will continue to
refuse to recognize the obvious and dictate a
ridiculous allocation or closure to avoid the Cable Marine, Inc.
