To The Editor:
Regarding the article, in your last issue
concerning the condo clout supposedly being
sought by the FLWPOA, I would like to make some
pertinent observations. Although I am a
waterfront property owner, I do not belong to the
FLWPOA. I was, however, the first president and
one of the original organizers of the Sailboat
Bend Civic Association. I live very close to the
Seventh Ave. Boat Ramps which, incidentally, is
strictly boat; amps and parking and has never
been designated a park by the City of Ft.
Both Ouellete Wilkinson and Nancy Reese live
blocks and blocks away from the boat ramp area.
They have little, if any, knowledge as to what
goes on there. If Mrs. Reese had spent more time
researching that area when she was president of
the Sailboat Bend Civic Ass'n., she would be
aware of the drunken bums, heroin and coke
pushers, theiv.es and other undesireables whose
presence keep the good citizens of Ft.
Lauderdale away from the ramp area. I am sure
that both Reese and Wilkinson would be singing a
different song if they were to witness the
stabbings, shootings and murders that have
occurred there. There have been at least two
stabbing there that I know of since Reese and
Wilkinson were quoted in your paper. Residents
in the areas adjacent to the boat ramps will not
venture into that site after dark, and many won't
in the daytime.
If Ms. Wilkinson feels that there should be a park
for "the people from the interior streets", she
should campaign to have the chain link fence
removed from around Riverside Park--so that her
own neighborhood will be able to handle the
overflow of patrons from the Seventh Ave. Boat
Last year, the ci'~ installed parking meters in the
ramp area to discourage those dealing in drugs
and other criminal activities from operating out
of their cars and vans. But when the metermaids
attempted to write tickets to the violators, they
were threatenedwith physical harm and, thus,
refused to enforce said violations. Two weeks
ago, the city removed those parking meters, and
things are again returning to normal at the
Seventh Ave. ramps.._DrugsJuoGze aiT-d blood.
Twenty-two slips for livAiaNard vessels would be,
the best thing that could happen to the ramp site,
for the presence of good people would surely
have a profound effect on the bad people who
have taken over and driven everyone else away.
It would then even be a safe place for Mrs. Reese
and Ms. Wilkinson to visit then.

Here Icarus fell-the young, the bold, the fair-
Who dared on wings of wax to tempt the sky,
Unfeathered Eagle, first who failed to fly,
Who will not envy him a fate so rare?
Who would not in such high disaster share,
And purchase cheap such Immortality?
To him defeat came bearing Victory,
For he had vanquished time and Conquered care,
Youth boldy took that road so strange and new,
Power he lacked, but brave heart never swerved,
Whom the son God, Apollo, overthrew,
A foe whom such a high design deserved.
Heaven his aim, his sepulchre the sea
What higher aim, what grander grave can be.

Different boats create different conditions,
perhaps that's why our waterway signs read as
they do. For instance, whit'is the difference
between these familiar waterway signs?
(1) Idle Speed
(2) Speed Zone X MPH

(4) No Wake, Idle Speed
(5) Minimum Wake
(6) Slow Speed Zone
The list can go on and on and vary from going
slow to reverse propulsion or just drifiting thru.
I asked our Fort Lauderdale Marine Police
about the above signs and they do believe that a
uniform method of posting sign should be used
such as the Coast Guard sets its markers by. Now
each sign can be interpreted to mean from less
than idling to go like Miss Budweiser flat out so
long as you do not create any wake; roostertails
don't count. Take any one into court with a good
lawyer and you may wind up with a case large
enough to match Watergate.
The bottom line is a good boater will not create
a hazard to life or property using a bit of marine
courtesy. The vast majority of boaters live by this
and only a small minority are ignorant of the
basic rules. Of course all of the above is ignored if

Only In Fort Lauderdale... The City
Commission Downs A Bridge --
By Nathan L. Roberts
A bit of a tiff -- more like a tepid tempest in a
teapot has been taking place over a proposal to
extend the downtime of the Sunrise Boulevard
Bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway
At the same time, although nowhere near the
boiling point, discussions are being held between
the City of Fort Lauderdale and several
waterfront civic associations on a plan for an
extended night-long downtime of the Southwest
11th Avenue Bridge over the North Fork of the
Downtime for both bridges means that
roadway traffic will move while boat traffic, for
which the bridges are normally raised, will come
to a standstill.
In the case of the Sunrise Boulevard Bridge, the
Fort Lauderdale City Commission recently voted
3 to 2 in favor of extending the span's present
downtime to a full hour during the evening rush
hour. The bridge, now raised for boat traffic on
the quarter-hour and the three-quarter hour --
that is, every half hour-- would be down from 5 to
6 pm. during the five-day work week. The plan
would go into effect as soon as State Department
of Transportation (DOT) and U.S. Coast Guard
clearances were given and would end on April 15.
Putting the plan into effect depends on
approval of it by the District Office of the DOT and
family, on its approval by the Coast Guard. If the
DOT withholds approval, in effect disapproving,
the plan falls dead. The State owns and operates
this and other bridges over the Waterway. The
Coast Guard has jurisdiction on the Waterway
Traffic flow on the Sunrise Bridge is currently
restricted to one lane in each direction over only
one of its two spans as it undergoes a three year
reconstruction, now still in its first year. When
completed in June 1988, the bridge will have two
spans of three lanes each and will stand 25 feet
over the water, higher than now. The south or
east bound span is scheduled for completion just
before Thanksgiving this year. Work on the
westbound span will take an additional 18
Voting for the lengthened downtime were
Mayor Robert Dressier and Commissioners
Richard Mills and John Rodstrom, with
Commissioners Bob Cox and Jim Naugle voting
Said Commissioner Cox, "I don't think a bridge
over the Intracoastal Waterway should be kept
closed to boat traffic for one hour. It doesn't make
sense to suspend water traffic for a solid hour
any more that it makes sense to close down
vehicular traffic on a major highway for one hour.
The Intracoastal Waterway is the U.S. 1 of the
water. I'm going to scream bloody murder against
the plan at any hearing before the DOT or the
Commissioner Naugle, in voicing his
opposition to the plan, speculated that formal
approval by the DOT and concurrence by the
Coast Guard "probably will not be forthcoming."
"There's a doubt, also," he added, "that if an
okay comes it will come in time to make a
difference. It may just come too late."
How late is late, he was asked.
"After April 15," he answered.
He noted in this connection that even if DOT
gave its consent, the Coast Guard might "pour
cold water on it." The Coast Guard has said no
before, he pointed out.
When asked if a letter to DOT had gone off
requesting its approval, the City Manager's Office
replied that "other more urgent business" was
delaying sending the request.
Naugle expressed flat disappointment that the
City Commission had failed to refer the plan to the
city's Marine Advisory before voting on it. The
board, Naugle said, would have given the
proposal the benefit of a careful study bearing on
the rate of vehicular and marine traffic at certain
critical hours of the day, queried the relevant
public and private agencies that involve
themselves in these matters, and given
consideration to the views of the motoring and
boating public before submitting its
recommendations to the City Commission.
Van Snyder, executive director of the Marine
Industries Association, agreed with Naugleon the
Commission's failure to bring the Advisory Board
"into the picture.
"That was the city's responsibility," he said,
noting that he had written to Commissioners Cox
and Naugle expressing his disappointment in the
failure of the City Commission "to take full
advantage of a relevant body of experts."
Commissioner John Rodstrom, for his part, has
been taking an even view of the whole matter.
"It's just for now until April 15," he said. "Our aim
is to alleviate the congestion of rush hour traffic
as it moves east and west across the narrowed
"Traffic moving eastward on Sunrise
Boulevard," Rodstrom said, "backs up past the

move left from Federal highway onto Sunrise. Not
only that; we're about to go into Spring Break,
which all signs indicate will be bigger than ever
this year. All that the City Commission is trying to
do in this case is to ease the situation that at best
is not a happy one.
Commissioner Naugle re-iterated his view that
the DOT and the Coast Guard --the later especially
4"since it has the final say -- will say no way.
That's where matters stood Tuesday morning,
Feb. 4 at the City Commission's regular weekly
meeting. Faced, as the City Manager's office had
already said, with "other, more urgent business"
-- notably the rapidly muddling issue of
annexation -- the City Commission cleared its
docket, if not its skirts, by referring the Sunrise
Bridge matter to the Marine Advisory Board.
The Board met Thursday afternoon, Feb. 6. Its
recommendation was expected to be on the City
Commission table Monday morning, Feb. 10. If
the board nixes the plan, the question is: will the
Commission accept and reverse itself? That's
where matters stood as Waterfront News went to

The 11th Avenue Bridge
F.T. Kain, Public Works Director of the City of
Fort Lauderdale, and High Barnhart, Street
Superintendent of the Public Works Division, in
accordance with a directive from the Commission
and the City Manager to sound out residents who
would be most immediately affected by the
proposal for an extended night-long downtime of
the Southwest 11th Avenue Bridge, met Monday
evening,'Feb. 3 with officers of three waterfront
civic associations. In attendance were Bob
Walsh, president of the Sailboat Bend Civic
Association, Sonny Irons, president of the Fort
Lauderdale Waterfront Property Owners
Association who is also vice-president of the
Riverside Park Residents Association, and other
officers of the three groups.
Kain summarized the proposal and its origin.
He explained that it was one of several that came
out of last Spring's City Commission
consideration of the 1986-87 budget as a way of
paring the budget to save money. The estimate
was that a night-long suspension of bridges
raising -- from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. or the duration of
one work shift -- would result in a saving to the
city of some $17,000. This would be accomplished
by putting one full-time worker on part-time and
eliminating a part-time worker altogether.
Barnhart, in his remarks, noted that there was
at least one factor that might militate ati'nst the
plan: an act of vandalism on the unattended
bridge control shack. Replacing the expensive lift
and other controls, he said, might well exceed
any budgetary saving. He noted that vandalism
to the shack and bridge happened once before.
In this connection, Kain explained that the 11th
Avenue bridge is one of the oldest of its kind in the
country and parts that are no longer serviceable

have to be replaced by new ones especially hand-
tooled because parts for the bridge are no longer
manufactured. Although the bridge remains in
service and is in generally good shape and safe, it
is -- in the light of modern bridge, technology and
construction -- an antique, if not a fossil. He said
the Public Works Division takes very special
pains with the bridge and very good care of it.
During a question and answer period, one
person asked it the entire discussion on such
items as money-saving, the condition of the
bridge, the pros and cons of the proposal as a
whole wasn't academic considering that the plan
would stand or fall depending on what the U.S.
Coast Guard had to say about it. He wanted to
know if the Coast Guard had been approached for
Kain replied that it didn't work that way, that
the Coast Guard had to have a carefully detailed
presentation covering every possible aspect of
the proposal before it would render a decision.
There was just no telling at the present time what
it might decide he said. Moreover, the Coast
Guard could take up to four months in rendering
its decision, he pointed out.
Bob Walsh asked if the City Commission
intended holding a hearing on the plan. Kain
replied that he knew of no scheduled hearing but,
a citizens group, such as one made up of civic
associations, could request a hearing.

Boat Sales Climb For 3rd
by Van Snider
The National Marine Manufacturers
Association has reported that American boat
owners spent an estimated $13.3 billion at retail
on new and used boats, motors, trailers, and
related accessories and services in 1985. That is
approximately $1 billion more than the previous
year. According to NMMA president Jeff Napier,
this boating rally followed on the heels of a"boom
year" in 1984. Napier stated "We are particularly
encouraged by the seven percent sales growth in
1985 because it backed up a 30 percent surge in
1984." While total boat unit sales retrenched
slightly in the period from 657,730 to 636,800, or
three percent, they still represent the strongest
performance in a decade.
Top sales performers in 1985 continued to be on
the power side of the industry. Figures reveal that
certain segments of the market which have not
been performing up to par may be strengthening.
Napier stated that "Taken together, sail products
showed slight increase in unit sales." Inboard
motor yachts advanced 9.2 percent to sales of
16,700; sterndrive boats grew by 6.5 percent to
115,000 units; inboard and sterndrive power
.plants added 4.7 percent to 155,000 units. The
most popular, the family outboard runabout
increased in average price including trailer from
$6,116 to $6,645 partly because the buyer gained
slightly more horsepower in the purchase.
FLORIDA topped all states with a combined total
of new boats, motors, trailers and accessories of
$720.0 million. Following Florida were: California
($461.2 million), New York ($444.2 million).
Michigan ($415.1 million) and Texas ($318.8
million). Florida still remains 5th in the number of
From an accessory standpoint, NMMA
reported that 1985 was a record-setter for marine
accessories. The hottest two months, April and
May '85 saw shipment volume at the $50 million
mark which surpassed the previous high of $44
million set in the 1984 model year. Major gains in
accessory groupings occurred in cordage,
electronic and navigational equipment, engine
and propulsion equipment, instrumentation and

This is the time of year when those of us in the
diving industry get used to not seeing some of our
best divers. The reason? Cold water. Many of the
Florida divers put their gear away after Labor
Day and we don't see them again until Memorial
Besides the cold water, the reasons the divers
stay away is the most dreaded foe of all, the wind.
Divers equate cold and wind together. Sometimes
they're right, but sometimes winter diving can be
very rewarding in terms of visibility and fish life.
Sometimes the wind can be blowing and you can
still enjoy the dive. It all depends on where the
wind comes from.
Our coldest wind comes from the north west
and not north as many divers think. That, weather
experts tell us is because due north of us is the
ocean, and wind that comes over water is slightly
warmer. Wind coming from the northwest
however is coming right through the state and it's
over land. This wind is very cold, at least for we
Floridians, at least for this Floridian. However
because the wind is coming from land it lays the
ocean down for about a mile east offshore. So
sometimes our very coldest days can offer some
very beautiful calm diving, especially on our first
Sand second reef's just offshore.
When the wind is out of the west and the water
is calm, it very frequently has good visibility of 50
or 60 feet.
That's the good news. The bad news is that with
cold water, you have to have thermal protection.
When the water temperature gets below 75
.degrees divers should have protection against
the increased heat loss of the water. We all
learned in a basic class that we lose our body

heat 25 times faster underwater but often divers
Many divers hate the claustrophobic feeling of
the snug wet suit, but with the new fabrics they
make wet suits with, that shouldn't be a problem.
Even with the suit on, divers might find that
they are still cold. Water comes over the back of
the neck into their suit causing chills. The answer
is a hood. Some of us chickens wear not only a
wet suit, but ;underneath vest with a hood
attached. Sometimes this is called a chicken vest.
So be it, comfort counts for everything under
water. With the hood on you can feel the warm
water on the back of your neck and comfort is
Another plus in winter diving is that usually
there are fewer divers. In the summer, conditions
on dive boats can get hectic. However, in the
winter fewer divers mean more space on the
different dive charter boats and certainly less
crowding on the wrecks and reefs.
Many dive shops offer speciality courses in the
winter, so it's a good way to continue your diving
education. When summer comes you're ready to
explore new and exciting dives as an advanced
diver. Winter is also a good time for basic
classes. The classes are almost always smaller,
and when summer comes you're already
certified, not spending half the summer taking a
You may ask," Okay what happens when the
wind comes out of the east and northeast," as it
does so often in the winter. The honest answer is
"You stay home." All right I admit there are some
days in the winter when you can't dive. But if the
winter wind is howling from the northwest and
the temperatures start to drop, go by the ocean.
You may be surprised. If it is calm, get your
wetsuit and hood out and dive. The winter
rewards are yours.

No Fish Story Here, Flipper
by Rachel Leach
It was starting out to be a rather ordinary June
day when I was asked to tag along on a dolphin
fishing outing with a few friends. Being an
animal-lover as well as a land-lover, I was quite
upset when I learned that the name of the game
was dolphin. I demanded to know why my fellow
fishermen desired to slay innocent friends of
"probably Flipper himself". I was curtly
enlightened that Flipper was a porpoise of the
mammal family and the fish we were after were
very different, and very good eating dolphin of
the fish family.
After the air of confusion was cleared and the
questions answered, our small crew of four
began a hopeful voyage off the Fort Lauderdale
coast with nothing but our fishing equipment,
some bait and our lunch which consisted of a
bucket of chicken. According to our captain, the
day was a perfect one for dolphin fishing. The
sun was out and the seas were 2-3 feet.
I watched the shore line with its towering hotels
grow smaller and smaller as we headed out due,
east at top speed. We went about 5 miles before
our captain decided that we were in dolphin
waters as indicated by a large patch of floating
sargasso weed. We let the engine idle as we
began baiting the hooks. I had been instructed
earlier in the first mate's main duty of preparing
cut bait. The bait consisted of some half frozen,
small fish that looked like miniature swordfish
called balao (pronounced bal-ee-hoo). This job
along with the responsibility of unhooking caught
fish off the line were my assigned chores.
I was only half way through my second balao
when someone yelled "Throw some cut bait out,
Quick! We're sitting on top of a school!". I looked
down in the clear blue water to see splotches of
blue and green whizzing by past the boat..There
was a split second of silence and awe then a great
scurrying of feet, fishing rods, and cut bait.
Everyone was running into each other, stabbing
themselves on unminded hooks and stepping on
me as I worked laboriously cutting more balao.
The sheer excitement of our good fortune had
turned our seasoned, seafaring crew into a group
of clumsy, first-time amateurs.
Somehow or another I managed to prepare a
decent amount of bait so that lines could be
furiously cast to the hungry multitude of fish. As
soon as the balao strips hit the water, they were
immediately devoured and the hooks were set.
After a while we had an organized assembly line.
I'd cut the bait, and hand it to an angler. He would
then catch a fish take the floundering creature off
the hook and drop it to the deck. I then had to herd
it into the cooler. The whole process took about
ten seconds. There were dolphin everywhere;
dolpin in the air, underfoot, falling out of the
cooler and tugging on the line.
After indulging in this kind of activity for about
what seemed like an hour, we began to run out of
bait; however, there were still many fish to be
caught. I was satisfied with the number we had
already and I was exhausted from running laps
around the boat chasing fish, but the crew wanted
to keep on fishing. The problem was that the fish
would not bite at bare hooks, although several
did chase the hooks through the water.
Suddenly, someone spied the bucket of chicken
sitting all alone and quite forgotten at the other
end of the boat. Could it be possible? Would a fish
find a chicken palatable? Well, there was only one
way to find out and find out we did. Yes indeed,
these were true-blue southern dolphin; they loved
that fried chicken! As soon as a chicken-baited
hook hit the water, there was a dolphin on the
other end. I had to laugh when I though of the
thousands of dollars in high tech lures and
sophisticated electronics employed by today's
fishing community. What with all the lorans,
depth recorders, kites and tuna towers, the fish
have to be laughing too, yet here we were
catching some of the best eating fish in the ocean
and we were catching them on fried chicken!
After our arms began to give out from reeling
and the rest of the school swam away, we
counted over three dozen dolphin in our
overcrowded cooler. It was then that we decided
to begin our happy voyage home. The crew was
ecstatic; who cared if they were probably going to
spend the rest of the day cleaning fish.
Back on land less than two hours after we had
set out we were showing everyone our catch.
They couldn't believe how many dolphin we had
caught. They also couldn't believe what we had
'caught them on but I'm telling you this is no fish

Fresh Water Fishing Report
by Mike Johnson
Bass fishing has been excellent at the south
end of the big lake. Grassy Island, Long Point, and
the southern end of Pelican Bay have been very
productive. Wild shiners have been the best bait
for those lunker size Moss Backs. Artificial baits
have been yeilding smaller size Bass with
consistency. There is a 60 day Crappie (speckled
Perch) Tournament in progress at the big Lake
call the Crappieathon. Entry fee is $5.00 which
enters you for the entire 60 days. There were over
1800 tagged fish released around the Lake and all
that is required is that you catch a tagged fish and
weigh it in at one of the official stations around
the Lake. This is serious business with 1 (one)
tagged fish that is worth $35,000.00 It must be
caught on a Johnson tangle free reel and Berkley
Trilene to collect the $35,000.00 However if you do
not have this equipment and tatch the fish it will
still be worth a measly $20,000.00! Not too bad for
you Perch jerkers.
EVERGLADES HOLIDAY PARK
Your best bet is to take some shiners to the
Miami Canal if your looking to catch Bass.
Several nice fish have been brought in however it
is not guaranteed.

High water levels are hampering efforts and
your best bet is to fish the openings-to the back
country along the east canal. If you can see after
dark Crappie are being caught at the spillways
along US 27 and most are being caught on
Missouri Minnows. Watch the weather if you plan
to make a night trip.

off the reef.

Another large predator that swims along our
beaches in shallow water is the Cobia. Often,
large schools follow Manta Rays, feeding on
small marine creatures stirred up from the sandy
If a Ray is spotted, watch carefully for dark

get an easy meal gobbling whatever is churned
up from the Manta's turbulence.
A live pinfish makes a fine offering to the
hungry."Cobe". Jigs and lures work also. In this
close, with few obstructions, the angler has a
great chance to.catch a large fish on light tackle.
The firm white fillets of Cobia make for some
fine fixins in the oven. Baked or broiled with your
favorite sauce or even on the grill these
gamesters are really something.
There is a minimum length of 33 inches that
must be observed. Also the new law prohibits the
possession of more than one fish over 37 inches
Mackerel action, both King and Spanish, has
been spotty to show. Chumming with live
pilchards have produced some decent catches.
Maybe some of this cold air will drive some down
Stringent conservation efforts to restore the
decimated Mackerel stocks are in effect now.
Netting restrictions and total catch quotas have
been established so to protect the existing fish as
well as restoring the fishery to what it once was,
if that's possible. Time will tell.
For this reason only two Kingfish are allowed
per person. Remember the days we all thought
there was an unlimited supply of Kings and
Snook season is closed for the month of
February as was January. Catches of "Old
Linesides" were more common this fall than last.
Perhaps our conservation measures are helping.
Fishing Chakaloskee often I've observed an
increase of Snook this.past fall. These are small
fish, many undersized, but the numbers are
increasing. That's encouraging.

Cruising The Upper Keys: Part I
by Capt. Ed Wiser
Cruising guides are usually a big help to
sailors exploring unfamiliar shores. A good one
will tell of reefs and harbors, markers and
anchorages. But when it comes to an objective
critique of hotels, restaurants, marinas, and
other commercial activities of interest to cruising
folk, the guide is seldom helpful.
Over years of camping and cruising in the Keys,
I have been able to find many fine stopover spots,
as well as a few that are without any redeeming
value. This series will let you in on these well kept
secrets. Our destination this month is Key Largo.
Starting on the north end of the island check
out a little place on US 1 called The Cracked
Conch. We stopped here after a weekend in
Pennekamp Park and pigged-out on delicious
fresh seafood. They had a special that day of
oysters on the half-shell for 15C with a dinner
order. We also sampled the best conch fritters
ever. The facade is definitely early Bahamian sea
shanty, but don't let that stop you. The food is
great and the prices are easy on your wallet. The
Cracked Conch is a few miles north of the
entrance to Pennekamp on the ocean side of US 1.
Unfortunately, it is not accessible by water but
getting there is worth the cab fare from anywhere
on the key.
Heading south you soon reach the center for
after-dark action on Key Largo the Holiday Inn.
With easy deepwater access, limited transient
dockage, tennis pool, and other amenities it's a
good place to stop and break the old anchoring
out routine. Dockage is a little steep though and
believe it or not, you are actually charged 14 per
gallon of water you use. A better idea is to tie-up
at 100 Marina which is just on the opposite side of
the canal from Holiday Inn. They charge the same
rate but provide toilets and shower, something
Holiday Inn doesn't have, and you are still located.
close to clubs, restaurants, and the only shopping
center of any significance on the island.
The Casablanca Club at Holiday Inn offers a
very filling, well-prepared, all-you-can-eat buffet
that I recommend highly. Be sure to try the broiled
snapper with tarragon-mustard sauce.And after
dinner you can dance away all those calories to
live music, usually of the Top 40 variety. If you
don't care for the tunes here you can walk on over
to Coconuts it's only 100 yards away and fronts
on the same canal. Guests can dock right
alongside and enjoy the ambiance of the dockside
bar. Of course they feature live music here too.
These two clubs located at mile marker 100, are
the focal point of Key Largo nightlife. In fact, they
are Key Largo nightlife. You need to drive 15 miles
southwest to find any more late night action. For
access by boat make reference to pages 79-81 of
Cruising Guide to the Florida Keys. Approach
day mark #2 and enter the canal at the old
If you are really daring and need some exercise
drop in at the Caribbean Club where the famous
Humphrey Bogart flick "Key Largo" was filmed.
Don't expect to see anything resembling the old
movie sets, however, since all the props were
torn out long ago. The club is on the sound side
and can be reached by shoal draft vessels. I
suggest that you anchor out and use the dinghy to
reach the small dock out back. Frank Papy says
that when he visits the Caribbean Club he walks
up to the door and throws his hat inside first.lf no
one shoots it then he knows it's safe to enter.
Good policy! This place has earned itself a rough
reputation. On weekends, don't be surprised to
see or participate in a brawl nightly.
My favorite place to dine on Key Largo is
Tugboat Annie's Restaurant at #2 Seagate.
Annie's is the only place in the Keys serving shark
on a regular basis. If you haven't tried this fine
fish yet, do yourself a favor and check it out.
.Shark tastes a lot like swordfish, has absolutely
no bones, and is relatively inexpensive.
Being off the main highway, most tourists are
unaware that they are missing one of the few
places that literally retains the flavor of the old
Keys. The fact that locals comprise the bulk of
Annie's patrons attests to the quality of the food
and the low prices. In addition to fresh seafood,
landlubber dishes are available. Annie prepares
all her salad dressings on premises and does an
excellent job of it. I especially recommend the
parmesan dressing. We often get a pint of it while
there and use it for a vegetable dip when we go
sailing. To get there from the land side, turn left at
the Burger King at mile marker 100 and follow the
signs to Divers World. Tugboat's is directly
across the street. You can use the inside dining
room, enjoy the screened back porch, or dine out
back under the trees. If you are on a boat and
don't have wheels available just call 451-9974 for
delivery anywhere on the island.
As you can tell, my emphasis is on good food,
native atmosphere, and low prices. This month
we have covered some notable places on Key
Largo that meet those guidelines. Next month we
will explore the area from Tavernier through

and Ocean Sound Band, who are presently
playing The Helm in Hollywood on Fridays and
Saturday will be featured at the Cafe Exchange
on Feb. 11th and 18th.
A special highlight on Mar. 7th and 8th is latin-
jazz artist, Tito Puente, "King of the Timbales."
For those unfamiliar with the timbales, they are a
pair of tuned, open-bottomed drums, played from
standing position with untapered sticks. By all
accounts, Puente established the timbales as the
percussive powerhouse of the modern latin
orchestra, capable of thundering over the
brassiest crescendos. An outstanding and highly
original vibraphonist as well, he introduced the
vibes into latin music in the late 40's, later using
them to create a series of rhythmic tone poems
with Far Eastern colorations.
Born and raised in NYC's Spanish Harlem,
educated at the Juilliard School of Music, Puente
won recognition as a sideman and arranger
before rising to stardom with his own band in the
late 40's. Having helped inaugurate the mambo
craze, he rode its crest through the following
decade, appealing to Latins and Anglos alike with
innovative compositions and jazzy adaptations
of the latest Cuban sounds. Rock Music had
altered listener's tastes by the 1960s, but Puente's
core audience remained loyal until his career was
rejuvenated, ironically, by Latin rocker, Carlos
Santana, who covered two of his early tunes.
Although he maintains his brassy orchestra for
latin dance engagements, Puente in the 80s, has
been increasingly occupied with his Latin Jazz
Ensemble, a stellar aggregation that includes
such bi-cultural adepts as trumpeter/percuss-
ionist, Jerry Gonzalez and Argentine pianist,
Jorge Dalto. Puente, himself has been involved
.with latin jazz since he sat in with Charlie Parker
and Dizzy Gillespie while still an apprentice in
Machito's orchestra; later he performed with Stan
Kenton, recorded with Woody Herman, and
arranged for Count Basie. With his present combo
he has appeared at clubs, colleges and festivals
throughout the U.S. and Europe, introducing latin
jazz to new audiences and opening doors for his
talented sidemen, several of whom lead their own

Sea Rescue Changes A Name
by Isaac Corkland
At Cork Ireland, in 1888, my Dad gleefully joined
two hundred passengers aboard the Dutch ship
SPRAY bound for New York and other ports,
including Florida. It was his third ocean voyage
and his second trip to Knoxville, Tennessee, to
start once again from scratch as a foot peddler
among the farmers. He was sure that his friends
would advance him needed funds when they
heard that the Czar had confiscated all his
possessions because he and his wife, both Jews,,
were living outside their Bavarian village. His
Knoxville friends would also want to make it
possible for his beautiful wife to join him.
Thoughts of his wife brought a smile to his lips
as he climbed to the third tier of bunks in the
steerage. It was a large windowless room marked
for forty people. Under his straw pillow Gerson
KorKlan placed his shoes and his small bundle of
clothes including the sweater knit by his bride
and his late Mother's favorite book of Psalms.
Thinking of his wife, Neata Liebe, he soon fell
asleep. Was it the ship's knocking, or the loud
whisperings or the coughing and sneezing that
woke him from his pleasant dreams? His head
was groggy and his stomach heaving as he took a
breath of the foul stinking room? In the corner he
noticed a large, uncovered tin can with which a
passenger was emptying a bowl of urine.

The ship rolled impossible that first night.
The ship rolled rocked, frockled and pitches the

scared to unactivity by the fury of the sudden
stance clung to their narrow bunks and gave ice
to seasickness. The stench was unbearable; the
sound of vomiting was no longer an incident; it
was a continuous performance. The only
question was how soon he should leave his
quarters and go to the deck.
Gershon, his shoes swinging from laces tied
around his waist, neck, fought, stocking footed,
across the rolling cabin to the companionway.
Clutching the safety rail he headed for the deck.
The full force of the gale caught him as he
squeezed through the watertight door into the
open air. He turned his head from the wind and
breathed deep lungfuls of clean salt air. The deck
slick with spray and rain made the going
treacherous. Gershon clung to the handrail
knowing the slightest misstep could send him
down the tilting deck like a tobbogan down a

himself between an air intake and a bulkhead,

Two crew member wearing heavy oilskins
struggled along the slopping deck, fighting to
maintain their footing when the ship pitched
sharply in the opposite direction. They were
lashed together by a stout rope. Each man held a
clamp to fasten to the railing as they leapfrogged
the length of the deck.
One man called. "Look! Something's caught
behind the air shaft."
Gershon realizing he'd been spotted was about
to call out that he was all right when the ship dove
down the side of a wave so monstrous Gershon
thought they'd shoot right to the bottom of the
sea. The crew members would have been swept
overboard if the rope hadn't held.
For a moment the SPRAY paused, stern out of
water, then the fantail slapped down sending
reverberating shock wave the length of the hull.

misery he was unaware of the activity on deck.
The frightened sounds of passengers clutching
gray blankets as they staggered onto the deck
finally roused him. They reminded him of rats -
rats deserting a sinking ship. My God! Were they
sinking? He struggled to his feet. In his corner and
looked at the frightened passengers nulling on
By the time the officers had brought some order
to the milling crowd, the gale winds had
diminished slightly. From the bridge the Captain
called for quiet.
"Ladies and Gentlemen," he yelled through his
bull horn, "there's no need to panic. We are in no
immediate danger. We have a broken propeller
shaft and while it is being repaired we can make
no headway; therefore, because of the heavy
seas it is imperative we lighten our load.
Volunteers are needed to jettison our cargo. I
repeat, we are in no immediate danger. Will all
women and children please return to their cabins.
I thank you. Volunteers please report to the
nearest ship's officer for further instructions."
Gershon didn't think there'd be many
volunteers because so many seasick people clung
to the railing retching while others went to the
security of the below-deck cabins, but a group of
young men collected around the officers.
The Captain had told only a part of the damage.
The SPRAY had lost a propeller and the broken
shaft had ripped a large hole in the port side
through which they were shipping tons of water.

as he passed crate after crate each one seemingly
heavier than the last.
"We'll move on to #7 Hold," said the officer.
Gershon glanced around surprised to see they'd
The ship felt different as they worked in #7. The
ship was much lower in the water and there was a
gentle pitch toward the stern. Waves still
battered the disabled craft but with less force.
My Father hadn't realized how exhausted he
was until he stopped being part of the human
chain. He slid to a sitting position in his corner
against a bulkhead and saw that the rivets of the
decking had shredded the soles of his socks to
nothing. He took them off and stuffed them in his
pocket wondering if new soles could be knitted on
The Captain's voice again stilled activity on
deck. "Ladies and Gentlemen, I regret to inform
you that the pumps are unable to keep up with the
incoming seas. The holds have been emptied and
everything that is expendible has been jettisoned,
but if we are to stay afloat we must now sacrifice
personal belongings. Distress calls have been

are in no immediate danger but I ask for your

then the jacket. He shut his mind to the sounds of
misery coming from the women's cabins as the
men collected the copper pots, lace tablecloths,
silver candlesticks and precious chinawear.
After the personal belongings splashed into the
ocean, the men carried the straw filled pallets
used as mattresses topside. Gershon struggled
with one unwieldy pallet after another. He lost all
sense of time but noticed the walk from bow to
stern was getting steeper.
The first panic had worn off and mothers
huddled with their whimpering children on the
upper deck while the men stacked furniture and
mattresses. Just before dark, bread, cold meat
and apples were distributed to the passengers.
Gershon who hadn't eaten all day was suddenly
starved and waited impatiently for his p action.
When the skies were dark some of the furniture
and mattresses on the upper deck were set afire
as a beacon for rescue ships.
The warmth of the blaze and the comfort of the
food revived the passengers spirits. Many moved
from group to group and occasional a child
smiled in the orange light of the fire.
Gershon felt very alone. His bunkmates joined
family units or gathered in hometown groups, but
no one from his cabin had come from Lithuania or
appeared to be Jewish. He craved sleep but his
whirling mind kept him wakeful. He rubbed his
sweater, now stiff with salt. he buried his nose in
the crook of his elbow willing the damp wool to
smell of his wife, Mata. He covered his head with
his blanket to shut out the noises and he slept and

In The Med' With Mary-Liz
by Colin Finch
Arriving back in Malta, after a 6 months.
cruising Sicily, Corfu, Crete and the Aegean
Islands, I received a letter from my sister, saying
that Bert (the brother of a close friend) wanted to
join me, and Mary-Liz, on our sail sail across the
Atlantic; and had $1,500 he could put into the
I was about broke at that time, nothing
unusual, and sent the obvious reply. Send him out
and we can sail on his arrival as it happened, this
decision nearly cost me my boat and life. I was to
find-out later Bert wasn't the best of watch
Less than a week later, Bert arrived and 2 days
later after provisioning, we left Manoel Island
Yacht Yard, Malta. Mary-Liz is a 30' steel Vanden
Stadt sloop, which I bought 4 years previously &
have been cruising in the Mediterranean in ever
since. It was the 5th of October and six days later
out our position was 135nm due north of Minora
being forced to sail a more Northly due to
headwinds. This I didn't mind as the prevailing
winds were from the direction. As expected the
wind veered round, increasing to Force 9 in no
time. So, under Storm Jib we ran South to Port
Mahon on the East Coast of Minorca, where we
spent the next 3 days sampling the famous
Mahon Gin. Then it was on to Palma where we met
Dave who wanted to get to the Caribbean. After
our last gallon of Mahon Gin we sailed with a third
crew member to San Antonio (Ibiza), our last port
of call in the Ballearics. We sailed from there on
the 1st Nov. for Gibraltar and the North Atlantic.
On the second night out, we were motoring on a
flat calm sea with good visibility. Bert came on
watch at 2300 hrs., and was instructed to wake
me if/when we encountered any shipping. We'd
been "through" this many times before, and
nearly a month was getting to have confidence in
him as a watch-keeper, so down I went for a few
hours "shut-eye". At 0015 hrs. on the third of
November, I woke in mid-air, to a terrifying
banging; it was like being inside a base drum. I
found myself in the cockpit seconds later; there
was no sign of Bert, the mast was down, sails and
rigging everywhere. It took several seconds
before realizing that Bert was not on the boat and
we'd been hit by a 5,000 ton container ship. The
ship seemed to be slowing down. After checking
for any rigging, etc. that might foul the prop and
getting it on board, I lashed down in a fashion and
went about under power. I found Bert a few

minutes later with the help of a flashlight he was
flashing. Getting him aboard, his first words were
"I thought you and the boat were goners". He also
happened to have a few provisions with him! To
this day, I', still trying to work this one out. The
freighter was now on the scene and offered me a
tow, and at 0700 hrs a very sorry looking Mary-
Liz motored into Alicante Harbour where we
stayed for 4 months.
After the local inquiry, and talking to the
Captain of the Spanish freighter "Hornos Sestao".
We concluded that the collision had come about
because of our small running lights and thinking
we were further off, the helmsman of the freighter
tried to put us to port, at the last moment, hitting
us just forward of the transom on the starboard
side. I've learned several lessons from this
'adventure' which have helped bring both Mary-
Liz and I from Alicante to Florida. I still always
insist,that my (experienced) crew wake me as
soon as they can distinguish the lights of another
vessel. Since that terrifying night, we've had a
very pleasant trip, through Gibraltor, Cassa
Blanca, the Cannaries and Cape Verde Islands,
from there 21 days to Antigua, Island hopping
from there to Florida arriving in Ft. Lauderdale in
October-a year later.

The popular "Miami to Montego Bay' yacht race
for the Johnnie Walker Cup attracts more
interest, more attention, and more entries every
year. The 1986 race will start in Miami from the
Storm Trysail Club (joint organizers with the
Montego Bay Yacht Club) on 14th March,
providing skipers, crews and boats, in both PHRF
and 10R classes, with a challenging course of 811

the seamanship and navigational skills of even

equally exciting celebrations, enlivened by the

From This Dock
by Capt. Bill Hard
This was not a good year for this particular
three piling dock. It weakened to the point that my
weight alone (undisclosed) was sufficient to
crumble the timbers and launch its contents
(that's me) into the canal without any thought of
passing boats or manatees.
The ultimate results of putting off for another
day what should be done now. Fortunately the
only injury was my pride and a very wet wallet,
all salvageable. The dock was a total loss and
now that income tax is due, I shall try to come up
with a way to claim such a colossal loss. After all,
it was only ten or fifteen years old, top grade pine
2 x 6. The hundreds of carpenter ants and other
multiple legged critters will now have to look for
new living quarters. Perhaps the sagging dock
across the canal can accommodate some of the
This tragedy might have been avoided with a
"wake detecting alarm" that someone has come
up with, at least so rumor has it through good
source. I can envision mechanical devices
floating with the pilings wired up to clever
attention getting items such as a pack of wild
dogs or warning shots across the bow and finally
the ultimate salvo of lead shot through midships
to stop the persistent offender. There must be a
means of detecting law enforcement vessels from
the law breaking vessels. After all, it would be
most embarrassing if you blew the wrong boat to
Davey Jones Locker.
This can all be bypassed if you have a mean
dog with olympic swimming qualities and steel
capped teeth. Simply train said animal to jump
into the canal and apprehend the nasty offender.
The bad boater may attempt hand feeding to

pacify the beast, or he may just settle for finger
feeding and work his way up. Either way you
succeed in lessening the offending wake that
obviously was the rotting cause of your fifteen
year old dock to sink.
One clever waterfront homeowner has found a
way to kill two birds with one stone, you might
say. His problem lies with an abundance of
overripe grapefruit burdening the tree. The
excess grapefruit have been very successfully
used as missiles to scare away messy, and I do
mean messy, duck population. They also work
well when used as a conversation piece directed
toward wavemaking captains. Unfortunately
some captains love grapefruit and return for
seconds, landing net in hand.
Hopefully the "wake detecting" device will
work out, I wish the inventor success. Now if he
can just invent a way to prevent dock rotting we
will all appreciate his efforts.

Ways To Avoid Returning Home By
by Bill Lange
A trained and prepared skipper is less of a risk.
After you have taken a USCGAUX or USPS
boating course, and after you have a USCGAUX
decal on your boat (call 463-0034 to arrange
these), most marine insurers will allow you a
reduction on your insurance premiums.
A recent letter to WN shocked me because the
writer said, in part,"..just bought a boat.. withjust
the basics in equipment. Would like to get all the
safety items I need without all the frills. What
should I buy?...."
That skipper needs to rethink the word "frill".
When it comes to life and death in the waters he is
navigating no item, and no boating course, can be
thought of as a frill. Each vessel is different. So its
owner must investigate in depth the potential
hazards. What are you willing to risk by deciding
to be less than well prepared --- and should you
impose your acceptance of risk on your
passengers or other boats?
Lots of skippers have many problems and so
must put priorities on what they buy.'But maybe
you can buyless bait and less beer for awhile?
Lots of marina operators are afraid of losing
customers so they do not say much to skippers.
They risk liability by so doing. If the fuel dock
personal hands you the fuel nozzle and walks
rapidly away -- what do you suppose his feet are
Here are some of the risks I have seen or heard
just in the last two months. Many of them can be
found several times a day just by visiting a few
boats. Maybe as I ask permission to come aboard
I should also ask about your liability insurance?

Nicest College Kids Ever
Face Sharpest Spring Break
Controls In 25 Years
by Nathan L. Roberts
The college students coming to Fort Lauderdle
Beach this year for Spring Break will be far better
mannered judging by their behavior over the past
several years -- in the words of one inn-keeper
"they're terrific" -- than the students who came
here in the 1960's and early 1970's, according to
each businessmen, civic leaders and city
Despite this anticipated good behavior, a
variety of new controls face the college visitors
"to channelize their enthusiasm.
"Today's college kids are not the rebellious
types who came here 25 and even 15 years ago,"
says Fred Taylor, owner of the 15-unit Wish You
Were Here Inn, 7 Birch Road, on the Intracoastal
"The Kids then -- it was during the era of the
Vietnam War," he recalls, "those kids despised
authority. When they came face to face with the
police on such matters as drinking, dress and
alleged rowdyism, it was often an ugly
confrontation that led to beatings and arrests.
That has changed. What hasn't changed is the
hard-line attitude on the part of some -- not all --
of our fellow-citizens."
"If some in the city government and others
continue to regard the students as a nuisance,"
Taylor warns, "and there are enough of those who
do, they can do a lot of harm to the students, to
this city and to the State of Florida."
RobAumann, manager of the 144-room Howard
Johnson Lodge, 700 North Atlantic Boulevard
(Rte. A1A), agrees with Taylor.
"Spring Break is terrific," he says. "The kids
today are nicer than years ago and they haven't
changed since I went to college and came here in
In the six years he has managed the Howard
Johnson Lodge, he noted, "we haven't had a

more stringent view of the annual student
"Our aim is to channelize the enthusaism," he
Asked if it was necessary to control or
"channelize" student behavior considering that

students are generally well-behaved and law-
abiding. Hempill replied that "it has become

With respect to the latter, Hempill emphasized
that anyone violating the rules of behavior and
forced to quit an accommodation on that account
would be unable to be put up anywhere else on the
Asked pointedly whether close or sharp
enforcement of these controls or arrangements
wasn't a subtle way of discouraging students
from coming to Fort Lauderdale for Spring Break;
was it necessary in 1986 to begin channelizingg"
student behavior when a consensus showed that
it had improved markedly in recent years,
Hempill, replies, that the picture was clouded by
He named one of those factors as the presence
on the beach of many thousands of Broward and
Palm Beach high school students co-mingling
with the college students. The high schoolers get
their spring break at about the same time the
colleges let out. While the high school students
are too young to be admitted to bars and lounges,
Hempill said, they come to the beach with enough
six-packs of beer to get drunk and misbehave as
they meld into the college crowd.
He noted in this connection that the arrest and
pseudo-arrest record of high school to college
students was 10 to 1.
When this figure was mentioned to Rob
Aumann of Howard Johnson, he disagreed,
terming it "quite an exaggeration."
"A more likely figure," he said, "is two high
school students for every college student
detained by the police."
Another factor cited by Hempill as clouding the
Spring Break picture was the presence on the
beach of Covenant House, the recently opened
shelter for runaway youth, and the activities of its
director, Father Bruce Ritter.
Hempill scored Ritter as "a charlatan priest"

responsible for "circulating on a nationwide scale
an image of Fort Lauderdale as the scene of
public nudity, sexual orgies in motels and other
He lambasted the Convenant House shelter as
"misplacedunnecessary, ugly and a stain on the
city," challenging as "untrue that Fort Lauderdle
is the Runaway Capitol of the USA."
Why, he was asked, was he attacking Father
Ritter and Covenant House in the context of an
interview regarding Spring Break considering
that there seemed no connection or relationship
between the two.
"Because," Hempill answered, "that faker is
giving this city a bad name by his activities and
the kind of house he runs. If students are coming
here because of Ritter's lurid portrayal of Fort
Lauderdale, the students are misguided and
that's part of the problem we have to deal with."
Rob Aumann, on the other hand, not only
disagreed with Hempill but disputed his
characterization of both Father Ritter and his
"Father Ritter is a decent man and is running a
good place. Covenant House, which is one street
away from this hotel and which I pass every day,
is a gorgeous place and is beautifully maintained.
I have nothing but praise for him and what he is
The Covenant House Shelter is at 733 Breakers
Aumann also disputed Hempill's description of
the uniform code governing occupancy aswell as
the so-called rules of guest behavior.
"It's all in the talking stage," he said. "Here at
Howard Johnson we have a limit of five to a room.
If there are behavior infractions, a simple
warning is sufficient. Anyway, if a list or code of
behavior is adopted, it will be given to the kids for
their guidance, not as a threat of punishment or

As for the open-container laws, Aumann said,
"they are meant not so much for the college
students but to control the local kids who carry
beer on the go because the drinking
establishments are off limits to them."
The nine-block barrier fence, known officially
as a "DOT Vehicle Separator," will have 10 access
points from sidewalk to beach along A1A from
Las Olas Boulevard to Granada Street. According
to Commissioner Naugle, the main purpose of the
fence -- he decried a description of it as a "wall --
is that it will expand the breadth of the sidewalk
into the near southbound traffic lane, the latter to
be closed to vehicles which will be detoured to
Birch Road. Opposing traffic will continue to use
the two northbound lanes.
"The fence will not only provide a safety
factor," Naugle said "It will release many police
officers from traffic and crowd control for other,
more urgent duties."
The Commissioner hopes to pay close attention
to the beach during the Break in order to be able to
compare citizen complaints with his own first
hand observations. "I am not an opponent of
Spring Break," he declared.
Bob Baldwin of the Fort Lauderdale City
manager's office explained that the fence will be
installed on February 15 and remain until April 15
when it will be dismantled. The fence is just short
of five feet in height, is mounted on a concrete
base and is costing the city $97,000 on a
lease/purchase plan with a private company.
According to Baldwin, the fence conforms to
uniform traffic manual standards that are in use
throughout the country. In addition to its use as a
traffic separator on streets and highways, it is
used for such events as grand prix auto races on
city streets, the arrival or departure of high
dignitaries at airports, and so on. If the fence
proves successful here, Baldwin said, the city will
buy it and the $97,000 for its lease will either go
into the purchase price or constitute the greater
part of it.
Motel owner Fred Taylor summed up a general
view of Spring Break as "actually a great help to
this city and the rest of South Florida."
"Today's student visitor," he said, "is
tomorrow's likely resident who will also be our
builders, bankers, realtors, manufacturers,
,---small businessmen and good citizens. We
shouldhelp them learn all the good things
about South Florida while they are here. That's
where the emphasis belongs -- not on treating
them as wayward kids or cattle to be herded

Spring Break On A Sailboat
by Capt. Frank Papy
I came back from a charter last month
skylarking around the Bahamas. When we got
back to the dock my wife asked one of the ladies
is her early forties did you have a good time? And,
did the Captain behave himself? She replied,
"great time", and thought for a minute, "The
Captain is, the most responsible man I ever met in
the most immature way!" Overhearing this I was
stunned by her remark. My wife answered
casually, "Oh that's because he has been taking
college charters out for the last 16 years, when
they come down on their "Spring break". I never
really though about it, but I guess she is right. At
45 years old most of my contemporaries think the
Police that arrests you and the B52 is a big
airplane instead of two rock bands.
Spring break for the schools starts around the
middle of February. Out Island charters in Miami
was my first introduction to college charters.
Eight forty-foot sailboats with skippers, fifty
college kids, 120 cases of beer, lots of bread and
balony, and we all set out for Bimini for a week.
What a blast. The music goes on night and day.
When they first came aboard, I was a little
worried about them tearing up my boat, but all
'and all they behaved pretty good.
Six of them aboard the boat from the University
of N.C,four girls and two boys. They didn't dirty
any dishes the whole trip. They ate over the sink,
a bite of baloney, a bite of bread, a bite of cheese,
and a swig of beer, and they are always in a
hurry. It seems that they want to do everything at
the same time, to have as much fun in as short of
time as possible. Here in the tropics where there
are no real seasons of the year, that's the way
most charter captains keep track of the date, "
Hey man you mean it's spring break time
already". Time really flies when it's summer all
I have seen big changes in the kids in the last
sixteen years, they are much more organized
these days. Year before last on the third week in
March we had twenty-six boats, just like one
company. We boarded and disenbarked at the
Miami Marina, the only place really big enough to
handle that many transient boats, and cars, etc.
Hooype Gallop, the dockmaster there, was a great
help; there were sixteen boats and Captains
waiting to be loaded and go out, and I was in the
Bahamas on a fortysix footer with nine other
boats coming back with the previous week's
group. We get in about 10 P.M. Friday night and
leave about 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon. That's a
short time, but by 3:30 p.m. Saturday we had all
the boats but two, loaded and out with ice, food,
drinks, wipdsurfers,snorkelings gear and lots of
suntan lotion. It cost each kid about $400 a piece
for the boat, Captain and food; but no drink, they
have to supply that. Most of them say it's cheaper
to go sailing than to lay around Ft. Lauderdale in a
hotel and buy their food and booze at bars and
We cross the Gulf Stream and anchor behind
Gun Cay. If it's rough we call the flotilla, the puke
pac." I have seen them throw up in my compass,
my rubber boots, and in the sink. Sometimes it's
so bad we have to assign bay buddies, someone
to help you when you are sick.
The next morning, it's a beautiful sight, all the
boats anchored and the kids swimming and
having breakfast of beer and cornflakes, the
colorful sails of the wind surfers zipping in and
out among the anchored boats. After breakfast
we usually split up the boats into two groups. I
take half up to Bimini to clear customs and
Captain Eddy Aguara who runs the company
takes the rest into Cat Cay to clear, due to the
limited customs personnel at both ports.
After a nice sail into the harbor and dockings,

the fun starts: music and dancing, limbo
contests and generally partying day and night on
the dock. The more organized crews cooking out
on the grills and the less organized eating over
the sink. When the other boats arrive from Cat
Cay we have enough people and boats to cause
inflation in Bimini. I must compliment the people
of Bimini and Cat Cay for putting up with the
frivolity and antics all done in good fun.
There is a great comradery among the charter
sailboat Captains and this gives us a good chance
to catch up on the news of what each other has
been doing over the year. It's kind of a reunion
and party for us, too, while working. We have
three lady sailboat Captains in the group now
which really helps in the activities, especially in
the communication department, having usually a
larger ratio of girls on board; where as before if a
girl had a problem sometimes it was difficult for
her to discuss this with her male Captain. We sort
of take turns keeping an eye on the boats and our
wild and crazy passengers, helping them'rig up
dinghy races, windsurfing races, diving and
We make Bimini the unofficial headquarters
taking day and overnight sails down to the
beautiful, beaches and reefs of Gun and Cat Cay,
with some of the boats even going up to Freeport
for the more affluent kids who want to gamble.
We working it out among the Captains who
want to stay in port, who want to sail or dive etc.
When I am at the dock in Bimini, I usuallyget up
around 8:00 o'clock, check the boats and walk
over to the beach for a swim. I have seen radio
beach look like after a World War I batt le all the
kids sleeping or past out in the sand with beer
cans and rumbottles scattered everywhere.
Captain Dick Karr is usually in charge of
assigning different boat crews to take turns
cleaning up the beach following day.
On the day before we leave weather permitting
the owner of the Compleat Anpler Hotel throws a
party with free conch fritters and games with
prizes of champagne and a free week-end at the
hotel for the winner of the wet tee shirt contest.
One of the games consists of smashing a coconut
on the ground until it breaks open. I think there as
a lot of skill in it because usually a small
Bahamian can open it before some giant football
jock can, much to the amazement of the judges
who get free drinks and can't figure out much of
anything after a couple of cups of grogg.
The next day we depart back for America. It's a
Smad house getting ready, trying to find the gear
and clean up with the bad hangovers. We were
hawking oranges in the cockpit when one of my
crew came up with some aspirin. I told her, "Let
me know ,if you feel better!" "Why?" says she?
"Because you just took two orange seeds instead
of your aspirin!" To which she replied, "Awsome!
Far out! Like wow! I am such a geek!"
Each year the Captains have to learn a whole
new language or at least we think we do, say:for
example "to be seasick": barf, flash, biich,
ralph,toss your cookies, dump your lunch, bif,
puke, chunder and Ir". This talk doesn't seem to
bother the Bahamians, they have the language all
their own. The only thing that seems to baffle the
Bahamians is the strange American custom of
I think they take it too literally.
If we are lucky on the sail back, we will get a
fifteen to eighteen knot southerly wind. We all sail
back together. I's quire a sight, about 3 dozen or
so boats waiting to get started back for another
A good broad reach across the Gulfstream
always seems to rejuvenate my spirit. The
freshnings wind clears the air, and cobwebs out
of my brain; and the seaspray washes off the
boat. Usually the crew is sleeping off hangovers
and getting rested for their long drive back to
school. The quiet after all the noise and chatter
When we arrive at the dock in Miami some of
the new group are in already, lots of goodbys and
we will be back next year. Many of thepndo keep
coming back. I have some repeat charters that I
originally met on their spring break. They bring
their family with them now, trying to recapture
the sweet kind of youth. They say it's not quite as
much fun as the first time, but they haven't found
anything to beat it yet. Girls, sailing, rum, gin, and
morhelings... Sometimes I think we never grow
up, we just get older, so if you want to feel young
call a charterboat. company, get a sailboat-and
your best girl and we will show you the way.
