with the 1984 Los Angles games, Diamond pointed out,
and again this year particularly given the distance Pusan is

U.S. Olympic sailing teams chosen
by Bob Black
Newport, RI and San Diego, CA-Fifteen of America's
finest sailors, composing eight sailing teams, won Olympic
berths at intensely competitive trials held at two venues
and will carry the red, white and blue to Pusan, Korea this
summer. A total of 388 athletics raced for the honor.
There were from seven to ten days of racing depending
on the class of boats and fleets ranged from 45 in the
Sailboards to only ten in the Flying Dutchmen. Just to
participate took two years of intense competition.
Some who will represent the U.S.A. in the gusty and
current-filled waters off Pusan, had a surprisingly easy
time of it in the final trials. 25-year-old John Shaddon of
Long Beach, Cal., a stockbroker, took second place in
his first outing and then won every other race in the Men's
470 class. He and crew Charlie McKee, 26, of Seattle,
made it look positively easy.
A new class has been added to the Sailing
Olympics-that of Women's 470 racing. Allison Jolly; 31, a
computer programmerfrom Valencia, Califoria and her
crew,-Lynne Jewell, 28, of North Hollywood, nailed down
theirOlympic uniforms with a sterling series of fourfirst
place finishes, a second, third and sixth.
Shifty Winds; Rotten Currents
The sailing off San Diego and Newport was a cup of tea
compared to what the pre-Olympic contestants found last
year atthe actual venue in Pusan.
Strong tides run across the course in Suyong Bay
producing survival conditions in opposing winds. Tidal
streams form a series of confusing currents and counter
currents and during the Olympics in September, the tides
will build during the regatta, peaking on the last day of
The situation, according to Barry Pickhall of the Times
of London, is rendered worse yet by a steep shelf in the
ocean floor running diagonally across three of the four
courses. Only the sailboards won't have to break through a
wall of standing waves to get into a stronger currents.
The winds bend around the shoreside mountains,
causing 30 to 40 degree wind shifts and seas that
challenge both seamanship and construction.
Insofar as the U.S. team is concerned, overconfidence
might be an enemy. Four years ago, in Long Beach, the
U.S. sailors brought home three gold medals and four
silvers out of seven racing classes. No Olympic team has
ever done so well in any venue inany years we didin1984.

A beach cleanup is being planned.for the Broward
County coast by a locally based natiorial environmental
organization. On the morning of Saturday, September 24,
1988 volunteers will police beaches in
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and John U. Lloyd State Park
(more sites if enough manpower steps forward), picking
up human trash and debris, according to Judy Hicklin from
the National Save the Sea Turtle Foundation. Hicklin said
that the cleanup crews willbe keeping track of what types
of trash are being picked up and where in the hope that the
sources and causes of refuse problems can be traced.

The Fort Lauderdale International Outboard Grand
Prix is scheduled for the Intracoastal Waterway north of
the Las Olas bridge on October 7 through 9. The following
weekend, October 15, the Miami-Nassau-Miami
Searace is planned.
Sands Harbor Marina, located on the Intracoastal
Waterway north of the Atlantic Boulevard bridge in
Pompano Beach, is planning to build a 13,800 square foot,
two-story shopping plaza and restaurant. The site located
just east of the yacht basin, is currently occupied by two
small buildings housing a boat rental operation and a
deepsea fishing charter company. Ground breaking on the
waterfront plaza is scheduled for spring 1989, according
to Charles Seitz, general manager of the complex.
Angelo and Cathy Lopez of Plantation are winners of an
Atocha Piece of 8. The coin was the Grand Prize at Ocean
Expo '88 in Miami earlier in the year. The 1989 edition of
the diving and watersports show will be-held February
24-26, 1989 at the Coconut Grove Exhibition Center.
TheMajor William Lauderdali neighborhood park was
dedicated by the Sailboat Bend Civic Association July
30th. The park, located at Southwest 11th Avenue and
4th Street, just north of the old swing bridge over New
River's north fork, received $35,000 worth of
improvements from the City of Fort Lauderdale.
Residents decided to rename the park, which had been
known as Waverly Park for about 70 years, in honor of
Major Lauderdale, who built a military fort in 1838 on land
just two blocks away. The civic association planted a bit of
history during the dedication with the introduction of a
coontie plant, the raw material for arrowroot a product
sold by Broward pioneer William Coolie.
The one-acre park will remain a pastoral setting for
neighborhood residents to enjoy some greenery and Maupin
hopes to one day organize croquet games and a tournament
there. Some $3,000 collected from neighborhood
residents will be used to maintain the park, install a
flagpole and possibly improve lighting.
The 5th Annual Sailboat Fishing Tournament is planned
for Saturday, November 12, 1988. Both the kickoff party
and the weighin will be at Harbour Towne Marina in Dania.

More Riverside reactions
Hester Santo's letter ("Riverside Reaction," August
1988 issue of the Waterfront News) alleged that Sonny
Irons, president of the Riverside Park Residents'
Association, was "operating a business from his
residence." An "Editor's note" followed which elaborated
on herallegation, and included speculative and false
comments about Irons and the Residents' Association which
elected him president. This is not the first time that Ms.
Santo has directed accusations at the Riverside Park
Residents' Association and/or its officers, but this
printing of her accusation along with the accompanying
"editor's note," amounts to an articlethat portrays gossip
as news in its failure to differentiate between fact and
I have lived down the street from the Irons family for
four years. Their residence is credit to this
neighborhood--well-maintained, quiet, and free of trash or
any other signs of the neglect that is all common elsewhere
in the neighborhood. Their residence is also free of
vehicular activity which would characterize a business
operation such asalleged.
The accusations against Irons really deserve no further
attention, but I do feel compelled to set the record
straight on two of the misrepresentations appearing in the
letter and the editor's note:
1) What was portrayed as "operating a business from
his residence" is Irons' past use of his home phone number
to answer technical questions and direct world-wide
inquiries about his inventions to the nearest electronics
dealership where his inventions are sold. Irons does not
operate a business from his residence.
2) The operation, integrity, and credibility of the
Riverside Park Residents' Association is also erroneously
portrayed in the editor's note, where it is stated that
"..Irons and Andrews have implemented their plan upon the
community." This is a gross misrepresentation. The fact is
that over fifty Riverside Park Residents took nearly three
years surveying the neighborhood, identifying issues,
researching solutions, consulting with city staff and
emergency service departments, studying actions taken by
other United States' cities, and then writing the most
through document of its kind in the history of Fort
Lauderdale. All this work took place in well-publicized
public meetings where involvement and support grew
continuously. The plan was then offered to the
neighborhood in a massively publicized all-day presentation
where it was overwhelmingly approved by four times as
many neighborhood residents than had voted in the
previous City Election. By the time the plan was in the
implementation stage, hundreds of Riverside had joined in.
The characterization of this neighborhood revitalization
plan as a two-man agenda is preposterous and insults the
hundreds of Riverside Park Residents who have donated
their time and effort to the neighborhood revitalization
The Waterfront News may consider Ms. Santo's
unproven accusations (along with extensive editorial
comment) to be newsworthy. I do not Devoting newspaper
space for the spread of accusations that are tantamount
to gossip is a waste of newspaper space-especially in light
of the need for attention to the critical issues that are
facing Fort Lauderdale's neighborhoods, and the City as a
whole. The additional misinformation appearing in the
"Editor's note" compounds the disservice to the reader
and the community.
Editor's note: Tom Andrew and Sonny Irons were only two
of over fifty Riverside Park residents who helped write
that neighborhood's masterplan and are only two among
many more whoare trying to implement the plan in that
Fort Lauderdale waterfront community.
Salt-water fishery threatened
Florida salt-water recreational anglers have been
blamed for a large portion of the decimation of the
Ssalt-waterfishery,.unjustly accused for taking more than
their fair share of the fish. What's worse, the recreational
anglers have been asked to pay for the restoration of the
plummeted salt-water fish populations, as evidenced by
Rep. Peter Dunbar (R-Crystal Beach) periodically filing a
bill calling for a salt-waterfishing license to be paid by the
Others who have also been repeatedly blamed for the
failing fishery have been allowed to'get off the hook from
paying their fair share into the restoration of the
mismanaged fishery. These people include developers,
polluters, governments which allow raw sewage and
devastating chemicals to be poured into the salt waters,
commercial seafood producers and processors, gas and oil
The recreational angler paid his fair share with the
taxes on his fishing tackle, boat, engine, boat servicing,
hotels, restaurants, travel expenses and other related
costs. In fact, salt-water recreational anglers paid about
$150 million in taxes directly to the state treasury in 1980
(when the sales tax was only 4 percent) after generating
$5.5 billion in sales creating 124,000 jobs, which led to
$1.4 billion annually in wages within Florida and built an
asset value of$27 billion.
Recreational anglers should not be the sole inheritors of
the blame, nor should they be the sole financiers, for
restoring a salt-water fishery which has been allowed to
become almost a dead sea by those responsible for.its-
management, namely the Marine Fisheries Commission, the
governor, the Department of Natural-Resources, and

Inlet problems for
I have been involved in boating most of my life, both
professionally and as a recreational boater. With this
background I know and appreciate the sometimes
conflicting needs of the various groups of boaters which
make the job of regulating the use of our waterways very
difficult. I live on the water in Port Everglades and
everyday I watch the traffic on what has to be one of the
most heavily traveled waterways in the country.
On any Saturday or Sunday it would be foolhardy for
any boater in a vessel less than 25 feet in length to
attempt to navigate through the Port area. Primarily, the
sportfishing boats and cruisers of 30 feet and more chum
the water to generate waves up to a heavy sea state.
Moreover, the seas are so confused that even larger boats
have trouble negotiating throughout the traffic.
This past Sunday I witnessed another small boat
capsize when he was caught between two passing
sportfishermen in large yachts.Luckily, he and his
passengers did niotdrown, but they were almost run over
by an ocean racer going at least 30 knots around buoy 29.
Suffice it to say that by failing to reduce the speed in
the Harbor area, the Fort Lauderdale Marine Advisory
Board effectively is restricting the use of that water to
those who would risk their life in an uncontrolled raceway.
Most small boaters I know will not go through this area on
the weekends because it simply is not safe.
I understand the need for the pilots, tugs and others to
be able to expedite moving around the harbor, and I am
sure that an exception could be made for them. But I
cannot understand the Board's reluctance to reduce the
Harbor to a "no wake" area. As I am sure you are aware,
the current speed limit of 30 mph, while very modest for
automobiles, is too fast for safety in boats in a congested
area such as the Harbor.
What we are talking about is a very small body of water
and very short distances. Except for the commercial
operators, who can be exempted, speed reduction would
not be a hardship on pleasure boaters who really are in no
hurry to go anywhere. They only wish to go fast
I assume that this letter is not the first that the Board
has received on this issue. But I also assure that the Board
must be concerned also with the potential for liability of its
members for failing to exercise their responsibility to the
I urge the Marine Advisory Board to again (most likely)
give this matter its careful consideration. They should
consider the needs of this area's small boaters who would
like to share the water with the "fat cats" who can afford
the big boats. If a petition would help document the
concerns of our community, I am sure that one can be

Busybodies' worry about dock rentals EjE
I see the "busybodies" are at it again worrying about
which of their neighbors are renting out dock space in R-1
and R-2 zoning. The way the "snoop group" is performing,
it will not be long before waterfront living will be
comparative to living in a condo where everyone is his
neighbor's "big brother." [See "Residential dockage
debated," page 7, August 1988, Waterfront News.]
It puzzles me as to why city officials should be
pressured into enforcing such petty and harmless things as
dock rentals when such efforts would better serve the city
as a whole by going after the drug dealing and other
criminal activities that are still rampant at places like the
Seventh Avenue Boat Ramps and along the waterfront
Propellor Club update
Thank you for publishing the Propeller Club of Port
Everglades election results and information in the August
issue. It has already resulted in some new members.
Thursday, August 25th, at the club's monthly dinner
meeting, Ron Washam, chairman of the Southeast Florida
Chapter of the Steamship Historical Society of America,
will be the guest speaker. Mr. Washam's topic will be:
"Oceanliner Panorama, then and now."
I know a few of those gripers, several of whom do not
have docks of their own. I feel that they are just envious of
dock owners who have a chance to earn a few extra dollars
to help pay their inflated waterfront property taxes. If
the "snoop group" and their friends would get together
and move into one big condominium, everyone would be
happy--both them and the rest of us.
So let's get our priorities in order and stop wasting law
enforcement manpower and taxpayers' money on trivial and
inconsequential matters and put those efforts and funds
where there are still existing situations that are
threatening both our lives and property.
Sheriff Nick Navarro will talk about Broward County's
jail system at the September 22nd meeting.

New River Raft Race different in 1988
The Fort Lauderdale Jaycees are altering course tnis
year with their 11th Annual New River Raft Race.
Festivities will be spread over a two-day period instead of
one at a new riverfront park and the race fleet will feature
a new class -Bar Canoes- competing on a shorter New River
course than the traditional one used by the rest of the
hand-made, jury-rigged and rubber rafts, other canoes
The weekend of September 10 and 1.1, 1988 has been
pegged by the Jaycees for the raft race activities and
"Treasure Island" will be the official theme. Live music,
food, drink and rides for the kids will be available at
Bubier Park on the north bank of the New River just east
of the Andrews Avenue bridge on Riverwalk in downtown
Fort Lauderdale both Saturday and Sunday.
The longer main raft race is scheduled to get underway
at 10 a.m. on Sunday fromthe Southwest Seventh Avenue
Boat Ramps. The new two-man Bar Canoe race will start
earlier in the morning running from the ramps down river to
the FEC railroad bridge. The New River will be closed to
regular boat traffic by the Coast Guard from 9 a.m. to 2
Rafts can be hand built or made with boat hulls or
rubber inflatables.Competitors can also use canoes and
kayaks. They will race for awards for fastest elapsed time
in similar categories: hand built raft, raft with boat hull,
rubber raft and canoe/kayak.
In keeping with the "Treasure Island" theme, a "Pirate
Award" will be given to the raft that best exemplifies the
spirit of Stevenson's classic novel, in the opinion of the
race committee. Ten other awards will be handed out to
raft crews at the post-race party in Bubier Park on the
north bank of New River just east of the Andrews Avenue
bridge on the Riverwalk in downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Bubier Park will also be a good vantage point from
which spectators can watch the 100-plus rafts race from
the boat ramps down river towards the Intracoastal
Waterway, turn around and come back again to the ramps

'Only for pleasure' versus 'Passenger for hire'
The reconciliation of the U.S. Code (Public Law 98-89)
removed the phrase "passengers for hire" from the
definitions designed to ascertain when a license was
required for carrying people for a boat ride. Now a cruise
or boat trip must meet the definition of "for pleasure
only."Today a pleasure boat operator may be in jeopardy
for operating illegally without even knowing it even if he is
not carrying "passengers for hire."
Prior to this change,a license was required if there was
any compensation flowing to the owner or operator. That
included sharing fuel costs and meals, bringing the bait, as
well as paying money for the trip. The redefinition is
broader now and includes more areas than before.
Some examples of operations which require a Captain's
A boat being used for promotional purposes or to
create goodwill is not being operated "only for pleasure.'
A member of the 6 o'clock news team asks you, as a
friend to take him out to get some pictures of the new
cruise ship coming into port. No compensation was paid as
you did it as a favor, however it was not "only for
Entrance fees to a sportfishing tournament which
entitle the entrants to participate in the tournament and
transportation on another's vessel make the operation
other than "only for pleasure."
The above scenarios require licensing under the current
definitions, but may not have under the former.
In a recent reply to a letter from a congressman who
had been asked by a constituent to inquire, Admiral Yost,
Commandant of the Coast Guard, stated: "The Coast
Guard has no desire to infringe on a private individual's
recreational use of a vessel within the scope and intent of
the recreational boating laws. However, the carriage of
statutory defined passengers, as opposed to guests,
requires the application of a higher degree of safety.
Generally, on a recreational vessel the safety of the
vessel's owner, operator, and guests resides with the
owner, and minimal federal requirements are applicable.
Then the carriage of statutory defined passengers or
requirements and responsibility to enhance the safety of
the passengers increases."
Captain Bob Arnold, director of a national captains
licensing school, forsees numerous problems for boaters
"A little preventive maintenance could have
avoided this,speculated Lt. Roger Edwards of the Fort
Lauderdale Fire Department after the investigated a boat
fire at the city's SW 7th Avenue boat ramp in August.
Boat owner Richard Commito bought the boat for $600 at
an auction of confiscated vessels two years ago. The Volvo
outdrive with an inclosed Chevy inboard appears to have
backfired, igniting a gas leak in the carburetor, said Lt.
Edwards. The boat was still on the trailer in the ramp with
the propeller in the water at the time of the fire. Commito
had a fire extinguisher on board but the blaze was too
intense for it to be effective. He was slightly burned but
refused treatment, said firefighters who eventually
arrived and put out the flaines.

and their insurance companies. He said "I can envision
insurance companies refusing to cover losses resulting
from pleasure trips that may now fall under the 'not only
for pleasure' ruling. Most insurance companies have a clause
that excludes coverage when the boat is used for illegal
Arnold continued, "The boater may consider 'illegal
purposes' to be carrying drugs, but to the insurance
company it can mean any situation where the Coast Guard
considers a license necessary."
On top of that, the Coast Guard can take action against
the boat owner and his boat for violating the passenger
carrying licensing laws.
The following scenario may reach home to a lot of skin
divers and boaters who fish: Members of a skindiving club,
contributing nothing for their passage on another
member's boat, find that they have speared one more fish
than they can use and decide to sell it on the dock when they
return. The trip was not "only for pleasure."

SORC announces 1989 sailing venue
The 1989 Southern Ocean Racing Conference (SORC)
schedule will be limited to thirteen days commencing
Thursday, February 23, 1989, with proper triangles in
Tampa Bay. On Friday, a longer triangle race will be held
which may extend into the Gulf. The St. Pete-Lauderdale
race will start Sunday as in the past.
The Lauderdale Yacht Club will sponsor an ocean day
race on Friday, starting off Lauderdale but finishing in
Miami to allow the fleet to berth at Bayside. The Lipton
Cup Race will be on Saturday and the Coral Reef Yacht
Club Race will be a windward-leeward (twice around) on
Sunday. Both races will start and finish near Government
Cut. All these races will utilize the same series of fixed
government marks and moveable inshore and offshore
marks to offer the best race course for the wind
The Nassau Race will no longer be a part of the SORC
schedule. Instead, the last race of the circuit will be an
overnighter starting Monday morning, across the Gulf
Stream and back using a turning mark in front of Gt Isaac
light, or possibly Ocean Cay, depending on which course
gives the best weather leg. The overall awards party will
be on Tuesday evening. 'This is a good tight schedule with
plenty of round-the-buoys ocean racing plus two
challenging longer races and so far has been
enthusiastically received by those made aware of it," said
Blake Flitman, chairman of the SORC committee.
The classes will be IOR, IMS and PHRF. IMS will have
two separate divisions depending on whether they comply
with the Associations Regulations or not Old age allowance
ratings will be used. Sponsorship of boats will be
permitted only in IOR.
For those yachts with the desire to continue on to the
Bahamas, the Miami Yacht Club and Nassau Yacht Club are
going to sponsor the Miami- Nassau Race and Nassau Cup
Race as in the past years. All SORC classes are invited to
'We look forward to seeing you in Florida and guarantee
great weather and superb competition," declared
Chairman Flitman in Miami to past SORC skippers.

Commentary: Deep diving instructor training
by Steve Hoffman
The industry's first advanced deep diving instructor
school was recently formed by Hal Watts in Orlando,
Florida. The Professional Scuba Association (PSA) was
formed to meet the need for competent deep diving
instruction. Some people question if the need for such
instruction legitimately exists. The PSA has found that
with the advancement of diving equipment and the profile
of today's modern diver, there seems to be a practical
need for extensive deep diver training. Although the
imposed industry standards dictate that divers not dive
below 130 feet, many divers do dive deeper and many have
the desire to make even deeper dives. To refuse these
people competent instruction by expert deep diving
instructors would be a disservice to the diving industry
and to the diver. People have the right to leam the safest
way to participate in this highly specialized and exciting
form of diving.
The first instructor clinic was held June 2 4 at Hal
Watts' dive school in Orlando. The program, open to
current scuba instructors from nationally recognized
organizations, began with a full eight hour classroom

session dealing with all aspects pertinent to deep diving.
The academic portion of the program presents the
instructor candidates with all of the most current
information available to date. How to plan and execute
advanced deep dives, increased hazards involved with
advanced deep diving, buoyancy control at depth,
decompression methods, use of oxygen, decompression
sickness and current theories on medical limitations for
deep diving are only a few of the many topics that
candidates are taught. Two days of open water training at
Forty Fathom Grotto, a sinkhole in Ocala, initiated the
actual introduction to deep water. Forty Fathom Grotto
has been customized with deep diving considerations in
mind. Permanent descent lines leading to all levels of
training have been installed. The diver is constantly in
contact with a line which allows more control over the dive.
A platform has been installed at 30 feet to accommodate
final checkouts and any necessary equipment adjustments.
There are extra tanks of air and oxygen tied off
underwater for decompression. At 35 feet there is an air
chamber that will hold up to three divers.There is always a
two hour supply of surface oxygen. In addition to all these
support features, Forty Fathom Grotto is located thirty

miles from a recompression chamber.
The open water phase of the program exposed the
instructor candidates to a gradual increase in depth.
During the dives, mental and motor skills were tested to
determine the presence or absence of nitrogen narcosis.
The course offers five levels of training that start at 100
feet and end at 200 feet. The maximum depth a candidate
may qualify to teach is 200 feet. Once certified,
instructors may only teach advanced deep diving in the
presence of another PSA certified instructor.
Deep diving is a sport that stirs mixed emotions in many
people. Some are for it and others are not. For the divers
who desire it there is finally a way to learn to participate in
the safest way. Thank you Hal Watts. For more
information on PSA, write to 2219 East Colonial Drive,
Orlando, FL 32803 or call (407) 896-4541 or (305)
472-7087 Ft. Lauderdale.
Author's Note: As advanced deep diving instructors,
we believe that without the proper training, dives should
not be conducted below the accepted industry standard of
130 feet. For many divers it may be better to stay above
100 feet Through the deep diving experience we hold it is
clear for us to see the trouble that untrained divers could
find in this highly specialized form of diving.
Editor's notes: Author Steve Hoffman became
instructor #4 at the June training session. He dives every
weekend at the Forty Fathom Grotto.

attempt unsupervised deep diving in a non-controlled

The hoopla surrounding thopening of lobsterseason
seems to get crazier each year. People were streaming into
dive shops at the last minute to rent gear, get air, buy
tools of torture, and were always in a hurry to get there.
It's becoming a "rites of summer" sort of thing.
Unfortunately, this year in Broward County, during the
special two-day 'sport season, a diver drowned in water
only ten or fifteen feet deep. Another death was reported
in Dade County, and yet another south Florida diver is
missing. Many other accidents and boat capsizings have
been reported in Dade and Broward County.
The problem is really two-fold. One part concerns the
safety problem with the once-a-year diver. The other
concerns the pressure given to the reef and lobster

South Forida becomes more and more urbanized.
The diver in Fort Lauderdale who died had jumped into
the ocean without his air on. Hecarried his fins in his hands

How long had it been since his last dive?
People cramped behind their desk all day dream of
getting out into the briny depths to bring meat back to the
table. There's something primal about it. Man the hunter,
man the predator, man the'adventurer, man the
conqueror. I'm not pointing the finger at anyone, because

Problems arise when people, in their haste to conquer
the spiny crustaceans, forget to:
1-Check out their gear properly-BEFORE THE DIVE.
Think about the gear as to what it really is: A LIFE
2-Get in shape, mentally and physically, to face rolling
seas and turbulent waters. Jumping into heavy seas
without preparation can cause serious physical and
psychological problems. If it's been awhile since your last
dive, think deep thoughts about a refresher course. Even

would be better than facing the seas without having your
mind and body in tune to using the equipment underwater
again. GET IN SHAPE TO GO DIVING, DON'T GO DIVING
TO GET IN SHAPE.
*3- Don't drink or take drugs before diving.
*4-Don't dive beyond your level and ability.
5-Don't dive fatigued; dumb things can happen.
Fatigue is also a cause factor in getting the bends.

beachfront,picnic area, with $5,000 donated by the Beach
The Beach Rotary Club made the donation and held a

Installation was completed Saturday, July 11th with
members of the club joining in on the work.
"The new equipment will enhance the picnic area and
provide more activities for families," said Parks and
Recreation Director Thomas Tapp. "The Rotarians'
generosity helped speed the improvements."

crowd to the beach," Tapp said. "This kind of effort
"The members of the Beach Rotary.Club should be
commended for donating their time, money and hard work

Show comes to Miami
Exotic marine tropical fish from around the world will
be at Miami's Museum of Science September 15-18. The
Florida Marine Aquarium Society is hosting it s 33rd
Annual Show at the museum with nearly 100 aquaria
entered in seventeen different categories, according to
society spokesman Gerald Loisel.
The Florida Marine Aquarium Society is a non-profit
organization which held its first meeting in 1955 and was
chartered in 1956 as the first society of its kind in the
world. The society started with 17 members and now has a
membership of over 500 making it, as far as Gerald Loisel
knows, the largest marine aquarium society in the country.
The society expects over 6000 people to come and
admire the beautiful salt water tanks. The public will also
see entries in a photography competition which enables
photographers to display their creative talents in both
underwater and aquarium photography. There will be
commercial booths displaying various equipment relating to
marine aquaria, collecting and scuba diving. In addition,
films will be shown continuously during the four-day show.
The aquarium show will open at 10 a.m. on Thursday,
September 15,1988, closing at 9 p.m. The show will also
run 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Sunday, the
final day, the doors of the Museum of Science will open at
10 a.m. and close around 6 p.m. The museum is located at
3280 South Miami Avenue in Miami. There is a $5 entry fee
for adults and children (3 to 12) and senior citizens are
$2.50. Children under 3 are free.

New Yacht Brokers Licensing Law delayed
by Craig Lustgarten
Implementation of the new Yacht Brokers Licensing law,
scheduled to take effect on October 1, will be delayed as
members of the boating industry and the State
Department of Business Regulation still have to iron out
administrative problems as well as final rules and language
of the new law.
Van Snyder, executive director of the Marine Industries
Association of South Florida (MIA), stated, "Not
everything has been specifically outlined in the new bill and
many of the rules to administer the law still have to be
proposed. Thus, the yacht brokerage community will have
the opportunity to give their input into the process, which I
think is excellent"

The new law, which the MIA worked for over two years
to get passed, calls for the licensing of yacht brokers and
salesmen selling vessels over 32 feet in length. Among the
standards that will be used to determine the worthiness of
an applicant for a license will be the requirement that a
person obtain a surety bond commitment from an insurance
company which is to be sent into the State along with
Gerald Hellrung, vice president of the Florida Yacht
Brokers Association, stated that "the big factor in the
new law was the bonding requirement, which will eliminate a
lot of people who shouldn't be in the business in the first
Hellrung added that bonding companies usually set high
standards for surety, including reviewing an applicant's
credit record, financial statements, and criminal record. If
someone is found to have committed a felony, a bond won't
be issued to that person, Hellrung said.
Hellrung related that the new law is tough, as it
provides for jail terms, fines, and the revocation of
licenses of those who misrepresent or violate any law
regarding a yachting transaction.
Some yacht brokers have expressed the sentiment that
the new law doesn't go far enough. One area of particular
concern is that the legislation doesn't include a requirement
for testing brokers before they become licensed.
Ed Wiser, president of Harrison Associates, stated,
'Vocational regulation is supposed to act as a barrier to
the incompetent and the unethical this legislation neither
adequately supervises nor regulates the brokerage
Wiser added that testing is needed to help ensure that
a licensed broker in the industry is at least moderately
Charles P. Irwin, a director with the Florida Yacht
Association, says "the new law has a long way to go, but
it's a start and a decent basis to work from."
Van Snyder related that any time you have a new law it's
not going to be perfect, but "if we had put stronger
language in there regarding testing and other measures,
the bill probably would not have passed."
A group of Florida yacht brokers recently started a
new non-profit organization known as the Florida Yacht
According to Gerald Hellrung, vice president of the
new association, the group was initiated last October and
presently has 54 active members and 60 associate
One of the primary objectives of the Florida Yacht
Brokers Association is to promote and maintain a high
standard of conduct in the transacting of the yacht
brokerage business, thus providing a greater degree of
protection to consumers.

Residents and visitors along Broward County's
Intracoastal Waterway will soon be hiring Mike Rogan. At
least he hopes so. By October of this year, Rogan plans to
be at the helm of Broward's first water taxi service.
In a letter to City Marine Dock Supervisor Jamie Hart,
Rogan and his partners -- Captains Jim Hasty and Steve
Halbrook -- proposed the service which would "run on a
daily basis, seven days a week" along Fort Lauderdale's
Intracoastal waterway and the New River.
And though it may be new to Fort Lauderdale the
concept is one the trio is well acquainted with. They've
already gotten their boats wet in a similar enterprise in
Annapolis, Maryland. The success of that venture

"We see it as probably a ten-boat operation," says
Rogan, "though we plan to start out with two to four
boats. As demand picks up we'll order more." Each of the
26 and-a-half foot long fiberglass boats is being specially
built and will accommodate 24 passengers. The boats will
also include protective covers and enclosures for inclement
weather and will be equipped with VHF marine radios and
'We plan on running a route," Rogan says, "but if
someone calls or hails us, we'll stop. We'll pick them up if
they're in a house, apartment or establishment that's not
too out of the way." For the most part, however, Rogan
envisions a circuit with specific stops.
Some of the proposed stops include the Fort
Lauderdale City Dock, the Swimming Hall of Fame Marina
and 14 restaurants and hotels. Four stops on the New
River are also anticipated and there are plans to expand
into the Dania Cut-off Canal.
Rogan and his partners have divided the route into
three zones. The captains have proposed that travel within
each zone will cost $2.50 per person. 'We'll charge aflat
fee for a passenger travelling within a zone," Rogan says,
"and then have a cost system based on the distance
someone goes outside the zone." But, he adds, the water
taxi is not a tour boat and there will be no discounts for
'We see the taxi as a means for someone to get from
point A to point B," says Rogan. "Ideally, we'd like to build
Up a commuter traffic." To accommodate these kind of
passengers, Rogan envisions a near-round-the-clock
operating schedule -- from 7 A.M. to 2:30 A.M. And with
many eastern Broward communities located on or near the
water, Rogan, Hasty and Halbrook envision afleet of their
distinctive boats ferrying passengers up and down the
Intracoastal. And while work starts
on the first water taxi, Rogan, Halbrook and Hasty will be
busy, planning for their October grand opening.

Magnitude: the brightness of a celestial body
Below follow the magnitudes of selected stellar bodies:

Full moon-12 from +0.1 to -1.2
Planet Venus -4.4 Star Polaris (North Star)
Planet Jupiter -2.2 +2.1
Star Alphecca +2.3
Planet Mars -1.5
Planet Saturn +0.1
Star Sirius -1.6

by James E. Sullivan
Magnitude is the relative brightness of stars or other
celestial bodies as viewed from Earth with naked eye
through a clear sky:
The scale ranges from magnitude -27, the brightest, to
a magnitude of +6, the faintest. Navigators use
brightness to identify stellar bodies. A difference of one
magnitude corresponds to a ratio in brightness of 2 1/2.
For example a second magnitude star is 2 1/2 times as.
bright as a third magnitude star and so on through the
scale. In the other direction a minus magnitude is brighter
than a plus. For example a -2 body is 2 1/2 times brighter
than a -1 body.

A recent survey conducted aboard America's latest fighting ships at sea proved that seventy-
five percent of the officers and men of today's navy, as seen above, prefer ice cream for
their desert. The other twenty-five percent of the sailors, according to this latest poll, favor
ice cream as their main course.
So, seafarers and ex-seafarers, is this not reason enough for you to hoist all sail or ram your
throttles to FULL AHEAD and set a course for THE DIRECT ORIENT EXPRESS, at Broward
Boulevard and the railroad tracks in downtown Fort Lauderdale where you can enjoy the
"world's greatest ice cream experience" aboard a vintage pre-WW I railway dining car? Jim
Hickman, the train's steward and conductor, can, in addition to offering you great gourmet ice
cream (both diet and richer than rich), prepare you salads and sandwiches that would be the
delight of any admiral's table. And if you present this ad, Jim will give you an extra scoop
of ice cream of your choice. So cast off and get under way.

S HOW I TREAT HEADACHES
FOR LASTING RESULTS
Ten percent of our population suffers from head-
aches and two-thirds are women. Medication may give
temporary relief and the headaches re-occur if the un-
derlying cause of nerve pressure is not removed.
This nerve pressure results from a loss in normal
joint motion of one or more of the neck vertebrae.
SThese seven bones have joints between them to allow
normal bending and turning of the neck in all directions.
As the entire flow of nerve impulses to control all parts
of your body must flow through your neck, its optimal
Dr.JeryJohnson functioning is most important.
Causes of joint motion loss are auto accidents/
q'ck whiplash, stomach sleeping, wrong pillow usage, sports
injuries, occupational stresses, and arthritis.
I perform a specific joint motion exam which reveals any locked joints and
then un-lock them with gentle treatment to allow free movement and remove
nerve pressure. When the neck functions freely you feel better because there is
no build up of nerve pressure you feel as a headache. As I have helped many
headache sufferers, I want to help you feel better. For an appointment, call Dr.
Johnson at 564-9999, 1509 N. Federal Hwy., Fort Lauderdale @1988

As a result of numerous comments and requests from
fishermen, the National Ocean Services has introduced
bathymetric fishing maps for each coast of the continental
U.S. A total of 13 fishing maps, which are not intended for
use in navigation, are currently available with an additional
21 maps scheduled for completion sometime this year.
~ Many fishermen asked that LORAN-C navigation system
rates, known bottom obstructions and the distribution and
fpes of bottom sediments be added to basic information-
already appearing on maps. The LORAN-C information has
been made available in the form of an overlay for
bathymetric maps and is intended to assist individuals in
locating and returning to the same position on the seafloor.
The Bathymetric maps and varied scale
topographic/bathymetric maps are designed for mineral
resource development, gas and petroleum exploration,
land-use planners, conservationists, surveyors, geologists
