Dive show surfaces again in
See 1989 diving gear, talk to scuba manufacturers
and plan an underwater vacation with representatives
in dive travel from all over the world at Ocean Expo
'89 International. The 3rd annual diving and ocean
will once again be held in the 100,000 square foot
Coconut Grove Exhibition Center at South Bayshore
Drive and Southwest 27 Avenue in Miami from
February 24 through 26, 1989.
"There will be lots of hands-on demonstrations
inside the center," predicted Ocean Expo organizer,
Susan Payette, "such as the PADI-sponsored
'Discover SCUBA Experience', a free in-water
SCUBA intro' for you would-be divers." Bring a
swimsuit and a towel, Payette advised.
An on-site underwater film festival will be free
with admission to the Expo and will run continu-
ously. Free lectures will also be held on; marine
archaeology, exotic dive spots and other diving
Divers interested in underwater photography can
attend an all-day course on the subject, Saturday,
February 25, starting at 9 am and running to 5 pm.
Cathy Church will be the instructor of this $45 class.
A display of the finalists in the International
Marine Photo Contest will include "categories for
underwater and above-water marine-related prints,
slides and videos," said organizer Payette. "Thou-
sands of dollars in prizes and cash" will awarded to
the winning works, Payette continued.
Diving pioneer Jacques Cousteau will be honored
with Ocean Expo '89 International's "Lifetime
Achievement Award". Captain Cousteau's acceptance
speech for the award will be filmed in Paris, as he
will be unable to be present in Miami. The film will
be shown in the film festival throughout the weekend
An indoor seafood sampler will be presented at
lunch and dinner each day of Ocean Expo '89.
300 displays of dive shops, watersports, treasure,
nautical wear, marine arts and crafts, boats under 35
feet and more are expected by Susan Payette at
Ocean Expo '89.

New ways of financing a tunnel under the Intra-
coastal Waterway where Fort Lauderdale's Southeast
17th Street Causeway drawbridge now stands were
discussed at a February workshop including county,
city and port commissioner, Congressman Clay
Shaw, Florida Department of Transportation officials
and the public. Consultants suggested leasing the
property atop a tunnel's ends to hotels and a "trade
mart". Rent income could total $30 million, they
figured. The tunnel's estimated price is $81 million.
If the state pays $18 million that leaves another $33
million to raise which the consultants suggest can be
collected by: increasing the hotel bed tax, creating a
new commercial tax district for tunnel-area busi-
nesses and/or imposing a surcharge on marina slips.
Several local residents of the waterfront neighbor-
hoods near the tunnel voiced their support for a
tunnel but were concerned about the impact the
proposed hotels would have on traffic in the area.

Uniform boat titling
SThe value of boats and accessories stolen in the
U.S. amounted to $197 million in 1987, according to
State Farm Insurance director of Marine Services,
Carl Cichon. Most of the thefts involved small, trail-
Serable boats the most prevalent kind. In an effort
to stem the tide of boat thefts, 25 states plus the
District of Columbia have joined the boat titling
bandwagon. Most recently, Vermont, West Virginia,
Rhode Island and Wisconsin have joined the state boat
title movement As titling becomes more prevalent,
however, uniformity between state laws is necessary.
Boat titling is the simplest way to protect the
majority of the nation's 9,963,696 registered boaters,
most of whom have no documentation or proof of
ownership. Registration and numbering of boats do
not guarantee the identity of the legal owner, they are
intended to ensure a boat is validly registered within a
state and to help law enforcement officials in the pur-
suit of vessel operators who violate state safety laws.
"Without titling, or proof of ownership, people
who buy boats do so at their own risk. They may
unwittingly purchase a boat that has been stolen or
that has a lien or encumbrance against it," says
NMMA Public and Financial Relations director Greg
One example is the case of the "Knot-T-Texan," a
$250,000 boat kept at the Galveston Yacht Basin in
Texas, which was stolen earlier this year. It was even-
tually found along a riverbank near Lake Charles,
Louisiana. Thieves had whitewashed its transom and
renamed the boat "Deanna Gail," reported the Houston
Chronicle. Asked for proof of ownership, the thieves
displayed papers apparently fraudulently obtained from
the U.S. Coast Guard in Houston.
Were it not for the persistence of a U.S. Customs
SService agent who noticed the faint outline of the
name "Knot-T-Texan" beneath the whitewash, the
boat would have ended up ferrying tourists into the
Gulf of Mexico on charter fishing excurions. "The
boat's owner was lucky. Most stolen boats are sold at
prices slashed for a quick sale to people who ignore
the possibility that the boat might be stolen," the
S Because thefts are most prevalent with smaller
boats, however, "lending institutions in non-boat title
states are reluctant to finance the purchase of boats
which retail for $5,000 to $10,000 without a better
way of recording their security interest," says Proteau.
"A Uniform Commercial Code boat recordation may
be used anywhere butdoes not provide sufficient pro-
tection of security interests in boats. Unless a lender
can trace the whereabouts of an encumbered boat to
have its security interest recorded with the clerk of the
county where the boat is kept," Proteau says, "the
lender may have no standing against a subsequent pur-
chaser who buys the boat unaware of the lien."
The problem with boat titling laws is that not all
states have them and the laws are not uniform for
those that do. If someone steals a titled boat and takes
it to another titled state, that person must transfer the
title to show ownership of the boat. But if the thief
goes to a non-titled state, he or she can register the
boat and sell it to an unsuspecting buyer. Similarly,
if the thief takes the boat to a titled state, but this
particular'state only titles boats over 20 feet and the

To promote the cause of national uniform boat
titling laws to state governments, NMMA and the
National Marine Bankers Association worked for the
endorsement of a model Uniform Boat Titling Act,
which was accepted by the Council of State
Governments. Several state legislatures considered the
model act as they designed their titling legislation.
Copies of the model Titling Act are available from

Consumers should encourage their state officials to
work for boat tite laws where they don't exist and
encourage uniformity where they do. Then, it will
become easier for consumers to purchase smaller,
undocumentable boats,oand boats will become less
tempting targets for thieves. States with boat titling
laws include: California, Florida, Illinois, Indiana,
Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Montana,
Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio,

Wisconsin and West Virginia plus the District of

Terming Congress' action a "major achievement
for the recreational boating public," BOAT/U.S.
President Richard Schwartz said, "this new law should
finally unleash the Coast Guard Auxiliary to do what
they do best, help boaters in distress." BOAT/U.S.
testified six times and lobbied Congress over a six-
year period to correct the interpretation of the law.
Another major feature of the new law is a five-year
reauthorization of the Aquatic Resources (Wallop/
Breaux) Trust Fund the centerpiece of the nation's
boating safety effort.
This fund collects nearly $200 million per year in
marine fuel and fishing tackle taxes paid by boat
owners and sportfishermen and returns these monies
to the states for the boating safety, education, law
enforcement and fish conservation programs. The
SU.S. Coast Guard also shares in this program and
will receive $30 million per year from boating's trust
fund to administer the Coast Guard Auxiliary as well
as coordinate the nation's boating safety effort.

I have a very peculiar noise in my inboard V-8
motor on my boat The engine runs o.k. and I service
it regularly. The noise comes on when I start the
engine and disappears about 15 or 20 minutes later.
After that it is gone for the rest of that day. Next time
I use the boat it is back. It sounds like a tea kettle
letting me know it is tea time!
What you described to me sounds like a gasket or
manifold leak. I would start by tightening the carbure-
tor base bolts and then checking all manifold bolts on
both intake and exhaust Usually when an engine
heats up expansion seals the leakage at all the bolt-on
parts. If you have a blown or defective gasket it will
have to be replaced. Squirting a little kerosene around
the flanges, the manifold gasket and a small amount
into the carburetor as the engine is fast idling will
show up any blow by.
SEvery time I go to have my boat tuned up my
mechanic says I need new plugs. The boat is a 1985
and I take good care of it. It has a Chev' engine
block. My mechanic says the plugs need changing at
engine tune-ups. What do you think about this?
Not knowing how often you use your boat, or
how many hours are on the engine, leaves me in a
quandary. Also, are the plugs burnt out? Whether
they are fouled with oil or gum is another considera-
tion. Plugs that are fouled or burnt are usually of the
wrong heat range or indicate other engine problems. I
would discuss this with my mechanic or marina.

I've recently moved to Fort Lauderdale from
Minnesota where I've been using my 23-foot Century
I/O with. 260 Mercruiser in fresh water. Now that I'll
be using it in saltwater I'd like to know what modifi-
cation are required or what maintenance procedures
need to be changed.
Welcome to South Florida!
If you are going to trailer your boat or haul it after
each trip, a good wash down with fresh water will
take care of the boat itself. You can install a fresh
water flushout on the engine or you can buy a hook-
up for the lower unit that will flush out the engine and
motor easily for a small amount of money for that and
a water hose. If the boat will be in the water at a dock
or marina the bottom must be painted to prevent
barnacles and algae from growing on the hull. This
growth will retard speed and prevent proper cooling.
Washing or rinsing down your boat will clean off salt
and a polish or waxing will keep it sparkling new. A
boating course from the Coast Guard Auxiliary or
Power Squadron would be a plus for you. You can
pick up many pointers from them. Al
I have a boat that keeps pulling to the left when I
let go of my steering wheel. When I go the boat it
was fine. But, this last few months it has gotten pro-
gressively worse. I was told I need a lower outdrive
which is very expensive. What else can I do?
What you describe is the erosion of the zinc trim
tab on your lower unit. When they disappear by the
process of electrolysis, the boat has a tendency to
steer away from the center. You can buy these tabs at
most marine stores. Installation is simple. They are
set to correct the pull to left or right by the installer
easily..I think you misunderstood the need for a new

masts and I can not believe the cost ofthem. Any
other way to rig up a furling main?
I have seen a few furling masts that have themain
sail on the outside of the mast They do cut down the
sail area and do not give the same sail cpntrol.an in-

To run all those things at the same time you need
a large size generator. But if you can ration or run the
things you need at that moment, your can buy an
inverter which can make 12 volts into 110 voltstfor a
limited time as it will discharge your batteries. Also
there are 110 volt generators that run, from -your

your 110 units as long as you run your engine. Your
engine will have to run either way to charge your

Broward's natural reefs are new group's first project
By Bryan Brooks
In 1988 a non-profit organization, Ocean Watch
Foundation, staffed by educators, divers, fishermen
and boaters, was formed in Broward C6unty. The
environmentalists came together as a watchdog group
to protect the coral reefs lying off the coast of the our
county. They hope to make the south Florida public
more aware and concerned for the coral communities
that we have in our own back yard. The Foundation
will make literature available for education, and
provide public speakers to schools and interested
Ocean Watch Foundation's first project will be to
place mooring buoys in selected locations off the
Broward coast The first ten are slated to be in place
by the summer of 1989 off John Lloyd State Park on
Cuda Reef. This particular reef was chosen because
of its heavy use by boaters, fishermen and divers. The
Foundation feels the mooring buoys will help stop
anchors that are dropped off the diving and fishing
boats from injuring the coral communities.
Many citizens are unaware that Broward County
has the only area in the lower forty-eight states where
one can don mask, fins and snorkel, go one hundred
yards east from the shore, and find living coral
Marine geologists have told us that during the last
Ice Age, over 10,000 years ago, those tracts were
pristine, hard coral reefs, such as those found in the
Florida Keys today. When the Ice Age ended and the
oceans of the world rose, those reefs died. They
became the limestone tracts that run up and down
called the First, Second and Third Reefs; each reef
runs north and south. Cuda Reef, where the first ten
buoys will go is a section of the Second Reef. The
higher the number of the reef, the further offshore it
Many marine scientists insist that the reef tracts
off our coast are dead reefs. This is, in a sense, both
right and wrong. The tracts of limestone from those
Ice Age reefs are dead. However, on those founda-
tions have grown a myriad of soft corals and some
hrt'coral, such as stag horn, brain and star coral.
Even a few colonies of pillar coral exist on the
Broward County reefs. With the soft coral and scat-
tered hard coral communities, have come the fish,
and all the other critters that make up a beautiful
This mooring procedure has already been done by
most of the Caribbean and Bahamian Islands that
make their living off the tourist dollar. They were
quick to realize the gold they had in the coral reefs
and fish that nature placed there. Those islands
became very protective of their natural resources, and
what careless destruction would do to their economy.
Ocean Watch takes a similar interest in Broward
County's few remaining natural resources.
The Foundation hopes that when the tourist indus-
try realizes the financial loss that destruction of those
reefs would cause, they might become more involved
in the undersea environment. Hitting people in their
pocketbook sometimes gets their attention. Since the
reefs lie under the area, few people know of them,
and fewer still, care. This education is part of Ocean
Watch Foundation's goal.
By placing the mooring buoys, the Foundation is
taking their hopes and ideas from the talk stage into
actually doing something. Larry Hatfield, a college
educator in emergency medicine, is president of
Ocean Watch Foundation. He and other members of
the Foundation have been able to solicit help from the
Broward County Environmental Quality Control
section. Steve Sommerville, an agent from that
county government group, is getting the Foundation
their first ten mooring buoys. Other political and
business leaders also seem interested in helping this
necessary non-profit organization.
Ocean Watch Foundation, like many concerned
citizens, believes in saving the oceans of the world,
and the rain forests in the Amazon. But, they are also
a down-to-earth group that is anxious to begin the
fight to save the planet by starting in their own back
yard, Broward County.
Eventually, Ocean Watch Foundation hopes to
have mooring buoys all up and down the 23 miles of
Broward coast. They hope that this will keep the
increasing horde of boaters, with their anchors, from
damaging the fragile coral.
They have witnessed the success of such ventures
in Pennekamp Park, Looe Key and Key West. Some
of the organizations that were instrumental in getting
those programs in place, have helped the Foundation
South Florida Divers, the sport diving club, is an
example of an organization that is giving their
support to the Foundation's effort. South Florida
Divers did much of the free work in cleaning up old
freighters for sport divers to wreck dive on, such as
the world famous Mercedes I.
Another organization, the Broward Captains
Association, which is a group of diving charter boat
captains, also sees the value of the Foundation's
work. Captain Bob Good, a member of the Broward
Captains Association, feels that besides saving the
reefs from anchors, the mooring buoys w6uldhelp
keep other boaters from running over the divers he
puts in the water. Some lay boaters, not knowing
where the reefs are, follow the charter captains,
sometimes too closely. The result is that when the
Captains put their divers in the water, many near
accidents happen. As this area becomes more and
more urbanized-which WILL happen the incidents
of boats running over divers will increase.
Captain Good also said that the mooring buoys
would make the dive instructor's jobs easier and safer
during students open water check outs. The mooring

buoys, firmly attached to the reef bottom, would give
the instructor a safer, solid base to work on the
important diving skills with their student divers.
Ocean Watch Foundation also intends to explore
the possibilities of establishing state or federally
designated sanctuaries in Broward County waters,
such as now exist in Pennekamp and Looe Key.
Research, by financing and establishing the proce-
dures for an ongoing baseline study of marine life
and water quality in the coral reef communities, is
also high on the Foundation's list of objectives. It is
the goal of the Foundation to work closely with the
scientific community so that their activities are based
on fact and knowledge, not ignorant rhetoric.

The fate of the pro d plan by the Department
of Transportation to build an Intracoastal bridge on
Boynton Beach Boulevard will be decided at a state
administrative hearing set for February 21-23.
The City of Boynton Beach has been patiently
awaiting the go ahead of the project to help fuel its
downtown redevelopment plans. A decision against
the project would be a serious blow for the city,
which hopes to build a marina, hotel, and other facili-
ties near the bridge.
Hugh MacMillan, attorney for. Dr. Augusto
Lopez-Torres and the City of Ocean Ridge (who have
been fighting the bridge project), stated, "Our conten-
tion is that DOT exceeded its legal discretion by
making a decision which is unnecessary, expensive,
contrary to the public interest, and directly opposed to
Ocean Ridge's comprehensive plan."
In presenting his case, MacMillan will try to show
that there are workable alternatives to the current
proposal which will benefit all of the parties to the
Boynton Beach Assistant City Manager George
'nHunt related that the city's position remains

"While we appreciate and understand Ocean
Ridge's position, wecertainly don't agree with it and
feel it is detrimental to the County and our commu-
nity," Hunt said.
Owen Anderson, executive vice president of the
Boynton Chamber of Commerce, said that the present
situation is causing traffic problems because the
current bridge is not on a straight line with a major
Anderson stated, "It's a safety problem for motor-
ists traveling east and west between the ocean and the
western part of Boynton Beach. It's unfortunate that
the bridge project has been tied up in the courts for
years, because the public need is great."
The administrative hearing will take place at the
North Palm Beach County Courthouse on PGA boule-
vard. Presiding over the hearing will be William

Florida is first in the nation in the number of boat
and. boat motor sales,, according to the National
Marine Manufacturers Association. There are almost
650,000.: registered boats in the state and more than
40,000 of them are registered in Broward County.
Boats are constantly changing hands. Owners

switch from motor to sail, or vice versa. If you are in
the market to buy or sell, from a canoe or rowboat to
a sailboat or luxury yacht, there are a variety of
Alternatives range from inexpensive classified
advertisements in the local newspaper to using the
services of a broker or multiple listing service. The
option that will best suit your needs depends on a
number of factors.
When selling your boat consider how marketable
it is toothers. Is it a popular make and model with a
good reputation? Has it been kept in good condition?
How affordable is it? How fast does it need to be
sold? Are potential buyers living locally?
When buying a used boat the places you look will
depend on how hard or easy it is to find the vessel
you want, how big a hurry you're in, and how much
money you want to spend.
For boats that are either small, inexpensive, or
have a fast turnover, there are two easy and inexpen-

Boat sales in 1988 best ever
By Greg Proteau
CHICAGO Despite analysts predictions one
year ago that the nation's boatmakers were headed for
a steep fall resulting from the stock market crash of
1987, sales of recreational pleasure boats hit an all-
time record 750,000 units in the 1988 calendar year.
Market observers were also sure boating, the fourth
largest leisure industry in the U.S., would stumble
with the '88 summer's drought when, in actuality, it
drove boat users and buyers to the water in increasing
numbers. As a result, boating recorded its sixth
straight year of sales gains.
"We aren't so much smug about setting records in
the year past as we are confident that our industry has
responded to the needs and wants of American fami-
lies with products that are affordable, have real value,
and deliver a variety of on-water leisure options that
few other outdoor goods do," says National Marine
Manufacturers Association president Jeff Napier.
"Our trial by fire came in the early 1980's with twin
recessions and a cut-off of credit by the financial
community. We took the medicine, scaled-back the
business by almost 30 percent, and started heading up
-in 1982. Since then, expenditures on boating products
and related services in this country have doubled, to
the record $17.90 billion spent in 1988."
Referring to data contained in NMMA's annual
review of the boating business, "Boating 1988,"
Napier added that figures translated to growth of 4.8
percent in boat units and 8.65 percent in dollar
volume. Year-earlier statistics pegged unit growth at
9.8 percent with corresponding dollar expenditures
increasing at 14 percent. "1988 is more reflective of
our long-tern predictions for market expansion,"
Napier explains. "We see boating growing by an
average four to six percent in units from now to the
year 2000. There will be solid, moderate growth
years like '88 mixed in with star performance years
such as '87. At this juncture, we see positive short
term trends continuing."
Key factors in favor of boating's forecast include
growing numbers of primary boat buyers in the 35- to
55- year age category, continued family formation,
.emphasis on quality leisure time, a stable supply of
oil-based fuel and availability of creditfor financing
boating purchases. "Packaged boats,'where buyers
choose the boat, motor and trailer as a unit, coupled
with customized financing,- have, simplified the
details of ownership andthus spurred sales," Napier.

suggests. Once boats are purchased, owners discover
their high level of reliability which helps assure
maximum access to leisure time. For a number of
buyers, boats with living accommodations are becom-
ing alternatives to more expensive on-land second
homes. For those with second homes on-water, a boat
is usually considered a necessity.
Traditional market leaders, powerboats, led again
in 1988. Top-seller in the U.S. is the outboard motor-
powered boat of which 355,000 were sold. Average
retail price of this boat and motor combination -
which is likely bought for fishing 60 percent of the
time is $7,424. Highest unit gains came in the
inboard runabout (primarily specialized water skiing
craft) category adding 12 percent to 7,400 units,
outboard boats with 3.8 percent, inboard cruisers 3.05
percent to 13,500 units and inboard/outdrives (or
stemdrives) 2.78 percent to 148,000 units. A glimmer
of rebound emerged from the sailboat market where
non-powered craft saw an 18 percent unit gain to
34,800 units. Other non-powered categories with unit
gains were inflatable boats up 6.62 percent to 32200
units and canoes up 5.28 percent to 89,800 units.
"A particularly encouraging feature of boating's
1988 growth was activity at the entry level with gains
in non-powered sailboats, canoes, sailboaids and
simple fishing and utility craft," summarizes Napier.
"New participants in boating have been growing by
roughly 20 percent annually. Because we know the
typical enthusiast will trade-up to a larger or more
completely outfitted craft in three to five years, we're
feeling confident about the viability of the business
now and in the future."
More than 72 million or approximately- one-in-
three Americans went boating in 1988 it-a-fleet
exceeding 15 million boats. The typical boater is a
married homeowner between the ages of 35 and 44
with a median income in the lower to mid $30,000s.
In addition to fishing, people purchase boats primar-
ily to go cruising and water skiing motivated by a
combination of factors including relaxing and getting
outdoors, sociability and excitement.

Montego Bay sailing race gets underway
Fort Lauderdale Several entries a round-the-

February 3, 1989.
The Miami-Montego Bay Race is a great "leg-
stretcher" in preparation for the Whitbread Round the
World Race which starts September 1989 said one

Connecticut, Cara a 57-foot Nautor from Boston and
Peryton a 36-footer out of New Orleans. Two other
Whitbread boats With Integrity and Union Bank of
Finland will also be in the race.
The Miami-Montego Bay Yacht Race, which is
sponsored by The Jamaica Tourist Board, is known
as one of the greatest tests of ocean racing, challeng-
ing the seamanship and navigational skills of even
the most expert blue water sailors.
The course covers 811 open ocean miles and is a
classic beat-reach-run, ideal for PHRF, IOR and IMS
divisions which run simultaneously. It follows the
northern tips of Great Issac and Eleuthera Islands
then heads southward through Island Passage and
around the eastern tip of Cuba. The first to reach the
Montego Bay Yacht Club in Jamaica will be awarded
the coveted Pineapple Cup.
Perhaps the most challenging aspect of the race
for all skippers and crews is to beat the record set in
1971 by Windward Passage. That year, the vessel
completed the course from Miami to Montego Bay in
Fort Lauderdale will be the last stopover before
the final leg of the fifth Whitbread Round-the World
Race. Scheduled to begin September 2, 1989, from
Southampton, England, the sailing race will involve
between 30 to 40 boats from more than a dozen coun-
tries. The U.S. leg the fifth of six in the 32,932
nautical mile event will cover 5,475 nautical miles
from Punta Del Este, Uruguay to Fort Lauderdale,
from March 17, 1990 to April 13. All yachts are
expected to arrive by April 21. The final leg to South-
ampton will start oniMay 5.

Lighthouse Point Tournament sees live
by Mindy Leaf
The eighth annual Lighthouse Point Sailfish Tour-
nament was off to a "tanning" start on Friday,
January 13th. Typical sunny Florida weather was
great for catching rays, if not billfish. "The fishing
could havbeen a little better," commented tourna-
ment director Bill Allan.
Not that a great time wasn't had by all 28 boats
that entered the two-day, big-boat (26-feet and over
catch and release event, sponsored by over two-dozen
local businesses in the Boca Raton/Pompano Beach
area whi donated $300 each or the equivalent in
fishing tackle. And by Day Two, with winds finally
.kicking up two-to-three knots, there was some sail-
fish action and even (almost) a white marlin. More on
Allan explained that fronts usually move through
our area this time of year,bringing blowing winds and
billfish to Hillsboro Inlet (the event's usual fishing
grounds). For the 1989 tournament, however, most
entrants found themselves heading north, toward
Stuart and Jupiter, and up to 15 miles offshore in
pursuit of the big fins. "On the second day, some had
it rough getting back," Allan said.
The tournament's Dead Bait Only rule provided
plenty additional challenge for hooking sailfish
known for their live bait preference. Dead bait, which
is mandatory in only a couple of tournaments on the
East Coast and, at times, optional in the Keys, not
only :helps aid conservation by making it that much
harder to catch a fish, but is also seen as an
economic equalizer. "You can spend $250 for a
dozen live bait," points out committee director Ted
Orrell. "And I've seen s6me tournaments go to the
guys with the deepest pockets. With dead bait every-
one has a chance."
Despite the fact that the Lighthouse PointTourna-
ment is only open to big boats with enclosures and
costs' $400 for boat and angler, it is by no means a
rich-fishermen-only game. "We leave the docks at 7
a.m.; lines out are not till 8:30 to give older boats that
are not as fast a chance to get to the good fishing
areas," said Allan. Lighthouse Point also distin-
guishes itself as being thi only sailfish release event
on the East Coast to require onboard observers
(hence the no-open-boat rule which is geared to
observer comfort and safety). For a boat to be admit-
ted, it must first drop off a "tournament trained
observer" at the Lighthouse Point Marina and then
pick up another boat's observer which had been
assigned to the vessel. Often employed in release
tournaments in the Bahamas, non-biased observers
eliminate the need for lie-detector tests and head off a
whole lot of controversy.
Affecting the tournament for the first time this
year were new federal requirements issued last
October which call for the release of marlin in addi-
tion to sailfish not kept for mounting under the
Fishery Management Plan (FMP)" Marlin are not all
that common in this area and especially when
biting in high waves (which is when they're generally
around) it's hard to identify blue from white, let
alone measure by eye. Nonetheless, whereas previ-
ously billfish were simply boated, sportfishermen are
now required by law to release all white marlin under
62" long and blue marlin under 86", as well as sail-
fish under 57". To make matters even more compli-
cated, these are not your usual "overall" lengths, but
must be measured from the bottom jaw to the fork in
Here's what happened to Lauderdale angler Diane
Poirier aboard Private Affair. After fighting a circa
45-lb. white marlin for 30 minutes, the fish was
brought to the boat's side for measuring (no easy feat)
and found a half-inch short. It was also, as is
common due to stress and the raising necessary for
taking measurement, half-dead. Despite a rush of
recommended revival methods employed by Private
Affair's crew, the fish was sent overboard as meat for
marine life rather than man. (Had the boat kept the
fish, they would have risked a $5,000 fine for posses-

with the event's Hard Luck trophy.
Don Crowe of Johnson. City, Tennessee who also
keeps his boat and a home in South Florida), merited
first place for six sailfish raised aboard The Crow's
Nest, a Viking sportfisherman. First prize was $1,500
and two custom fishing rods, valued at $600, donated
by Bait Busters Tackle. It was Don's first win he's

Some big offshore tournaments arriving next on
the local scene are the semi-annual Billfish Tourna-
ment of Fort Lauderdale and the famed Pompano
Rodeo a multi-million dollar live-bait affair with
some 300 boats, 900 anglers, etc. Then there are a
bunch of ladies-only fishing events scheduled for
June. There are so many tournaments, in fact, now
being held during the first half of '89 on the East
Coast, that they practically average one a week.

ocean, I'd get the hell out of here."
Despite low temperatures and low tides, fourteen
young anglers competed December 18, 1988 for
prizes and awards in the third heat of the "Fishing on
the Island" series on Deerfield Island, said Park
Ranger J. J. Andrews. .
Kim Gillespie of Pompano Beach had the

The "Outstanding Sportsman Award" went to
Jason Wiesemann of Fort Lauderdale.
A new "Fishing on the Island" series began
January 15, 1989 and runs the third Sunday of each

date is February 19th, 9 am noon at Deerfield

The lifeboat sextant
By James E. Sullivan
The Cruver lifeboat sextant is carried aboard U. S.
The sextant is packaged in a plastic case along
with 2 pencils, an eraser, a pair of dividers, a six inch
parallel rule, and a scratch pad. Except for a block of
position plotting sheets no other navigation material
The instrument itself seems to be made of makro-
lon, a strong and stable plastic. It is a vernier sextant
more difficult to read than a micrometer drum sextant
but this is usually due to a lack of familiarity with the
vernier scale. When properly read it is just as accu-
rate, and when carefully read even more so than the
drum sextanL The six inch index arm has to be set by
counterthrust between thumb and forefinger. This
movement is not as precise or as smooth as the drum
This sextant is fitted with knurled finger adjust-
ment knobs to correct for mirror position error no
tools are needed. There are two shades each for the
index mirror and the split horizon glass. These seem
adequate but an intermediate index shade would
improve sun observations.
On this sextant the vernier scale is marked with
20 strokes, each of which is equal to three minutes.
To read altitude observations note where the zero of
the vernier is and read the value of the nearest divi-
sion to the fight on the arc. Then run the eye along
the vernier to the left until a division of the vernier is
found which coincides exactly a graduation on the
arc, all other units will appear to be broken (for preci-
sion, interpolation can be made when the strokes are
slightly out of alignment). The minutes and tenths
found are added to the initial reading.
Sights with the Cruver sextant are best made with
both eyes open. Sights taken on land resulted in
errors of 1.5 to 2.5 miles. However, the uncertainties
inherent in taking sights from a lifeboat in rough seas
will always limit the accuracy that can be obtained
using any type of sextant.

Marine and Atmospheric Science.
The oceans have never been a silent world to their
inhabitants, and with the addition of man-made
sounds, they.are noisier.every year.
'By the early 1980s," he says, "there was suffi-
"ient incontrovertible evidence no longer to doubt the
probable impact of man-made noise on important ele-
ments of marine life,"
Until Myrberg became interested, however, that
evidence had not been reviewed and gathered in one
place. When that was done, the disturbing picture
emerged. Myrberg concluded:
"Recent studies have shown that noise is not only
disturbing, its sources are avoided and in specific
cases, flight responses are elicited." In some cases
where the animals cannot avoid the noise, such as in
tanks where fish are raised for food, "severe develop-
mental problems can arise."
Myrberg, an internationally recognized authority
on acoustical communication among reef fish, adds:
"Such noise, when added to the oceans' own inherent
noise levels, could well create difficulties for those
animals that use the acoustical channel for communi-
cation and interception."
Thus, noise created by human activities may be
damaging the health and changing the behavior of
After reviewing what has been learned over the
past decade about the effects of noise on marine ani-
mals, Myrberg has become concerned. Ife cites these
Bowhead whale, one of the species closest to
extinction, avoided drill ship operations in the Beau-
fort Sea. Scientists observed approximately 120
whales, and "no individual approached nearer than 10-
kilometers and only a few nearer than 15 kilometers
from an operating drill ship even though it was on
their direct migrating path."
Myrberg says, "Thus, such noise, though likely
not damaging to an individual, appears to be suffi-
ciently disturbing to migrating bowheads to elicit
Migrating California gray whales also avoided
areas high in industrial noise. And two other arctic
whales, the beluga and the narwhal, "showed extreme
sensitivity to the noise produced by large, ice-
breaking ships moving in their direction."
Belugas produced "easily recognized alarm calls"
when the vessels were still 80 kilometers away, and
fled when the vessels were still at 35 to 40 kilome-
"Such sensitivity," Myrberg says, "is unprece-
dented in the marine mammal literature."
At the other end of the world, in McMurdo Sound,
Antarctica, the inner ears of Weddell seals were found
to be damaged in regions where dynamite explosions
had been set off by geologists profiling the ocean sed-
"Although information about the effects of noise
on several species of marine mammals has increased
during the last decade," Myrberg says, "our knowledge
is still fragmented and uncertain."
Our knowledge is more certain in the realm of
fishes, where the effects of excessive noise are known
to be negative:
High noise levels destroy the hair cells of the
Sauditory maculae of fishes.
The noise of fishing boats frightens away
schools of the fish they wish to harvest.
Continuous construction noise can result in
fishes moving out of a region.
Myrberg goes so far as to speculate that the
masses of fish which congregate under offshore oil
rigs are not there because they prefer it, but because
they have been deafened to the point where they can
function most easily in this noisy environment.
'There may be a very good reason why fishing is
always excellent around such rigs," he says.
Noise may also be a problem in aquaculture, the
growing of fish for food. Myrberg points out that
aquaculturists have given much attention to making
sure fish are given proper space, food, light and dark
cycles, and protection from pests, predators and dis-
"Little concern has been directed at determining,
however, whether targeted species require appropriate
acoustical environments," he says. "Little informa-
tion exists on the subject, but what there is should
draw some concern."
For instance, one study found that only 20 min-
utes of broad-band noise per day influenced growth
and reproduction among Tilapia area, a fish com-
monly raised in aquaculture.
Another study found that higher-than-accustomed
sound levels damaged eggs of two other species of
fish and the growth rate of their fry was reduced.
In still another, shrimp raised under a high sound
level were shown to have grown significantly less
than others raised more quietly, and they also repro-
Myrberg believes we must begin to learn more
about the effects of man-made noise in the oceans.
"If we dally too long," he says, "problems that
arise for these treasured animals will have no solu-
tions and their loss will then be imminent."
Myrberg will soon begin a new research program,
at the University of Miami Experimental Fish Hatch-
ery, aimed at detailing the precise effects of man-made
ocean noise on fin-fish.

Waterfront News February 1989 21
By Milt Baker
Two new novels with a South Florida drug smug-
gling backdrop make good action reading for local
' i..Browatd County author Chevy Alden's first niod,
iFacklWFcon (Tri-Pacer Press, $17.95), was seven
years in the making. It tells the storyqof pjlot Rqb
Jensen, who's tapped in a ifesle of hauling drugs
from Columbia to Florida aboard an aging airplane.
It's easy to sympathize with Jensen because his
life isn'tquite together he has real problems with his
girlfriend, with hishard-drlinkg (and hard-fighting)
copilot, and with just about everyone else too.
With a couple of hundred thousand dollars of
drug money socked away in his bank account,
Jensen finally makes a good decision: to stop haul-
ing drugs. And that's when his real problems begin
-- the organization learns of his decision and doesn't
like it a bit
The novel builds-- slowly at first, then faster, then
more slowly again, as Jensen plays the pawn in a
deadly cat-and-mouse game with the bad guys.
There's lots of action, more than a little local color,
and more steamy sex scenes than the book really
Author Alden's book makes it clear that he knows
his way around airplanes. He writes convincingly
about flying and fliers, though all his technical detail
is a bit heavy for us non-aviators. He also writes
convincingly about cruising the Bahamas, as Rob
Jensen tries to elude the bad guys aboard a small
If you like aviation stories that remind you more
than a little of Ernie Gann (one of Alden's favorite
authors), you'll like Black Falcon.
Author Robert Coram chose the same South
Florida drug world setting for his novel Narcs (New
American Library, $4.50), but it's a much different
Narcs pits undercover cop Lance Cunningham,
sexy Darby DuPree and a handful of other trusty
narcs against an evil empire of drug smugglers who
move easily between Fort Lauderdale and Bimini
aboard go-fast boats.

In spite of its trite name, there's a lot to like about

A city at sea
Port Everglades Sunday, 15th January, 1989 -
Into Fort Lauderdale cruised the world's greatest
luxury liner. Arriving from New York City, the giant
ship was nudged into her berth by attendant tugs and,
with the aid of her massive bow thrusters, she was
alongside her dock at precisely 10 am. Gangplanks
and access corridors were quickly in place and the
ship was ready to debark some passengers and await
the arrival of some 600 more persons arriving from
points all over the southern United States.
Tight, but helpful security scrutinized all would-
be boarders. "The Queen" had arrived.
Queen Elizabeth II, the latest of Cunard's famous
Queens, has attracted worldwide attention since she
was launched in 1969. Her living namesake
performed the ceremony. Built with cruising in mind,
QE II was designed to transit the Panama Canal. This
determined her length and width. With barely 12
inches to spare on each side, she remains the largest
passenger ship ever to transit the canal.
QE II continues the Cunard legend that dates back
to 1840. Cunard's first trans-Atlantic passenger ship.
was' the Britannia which arrived in Boston, Mass..
Thie Mayor and citizens presented the ship with a
coiimemorative silver cup. This cup is displayed in

personnel, 50 beverage personnel, 14 bartenders, 16
bakers, 18 wine stewards, 13 croupiers, 8 carpenters,
5 exercise specialists, 4 printers, 2 doctors, 2 nannies,
1.dentist, 1 disk jockey. Passengers' every whim and
need ae catered for by 90 stewards/essess.

bodies. For those who walk or jog for'exercise, three

published on board. There is space to take on 40 cars

For the leg-weary and convenience of the passen-
gers there'are 22 elevators.
At present, QE II is on her annual world cruise.
Stops at many ports around the world enable passen-
gers to join and leave her at any planned time.
Arranged flights bring holiday makers reluctantly
home. Not everyone is able to spare the time for the
complete world voyage. For some of the world-
voyagers; it is a renewal of old friendships. Some
people actually do the same cruise each year. Famil-
iar faces of the regulars speak volumes for the affec-

The five star rating in the travel-world's guide-
books is thoroughly earned by the British hospitality/
seamanship which is rated second-to-none in the

Vintage boat club launches membership drive
By Ed Wiser
The Gold Coast Chapter of the Antique and
Classic Boat Society (ACBS) is starting the new year
with two events designed to attract devotees of
historic pleasure craft and bolster its membership. On
February 4 members will gather at the Lauderdale
Isles Yacht and Tennis Club to cruise the New River
and adjacent waters. Members will be actively
searching for classic power and sail boats along the
way. Photographs will be taken of vessels of interest
in an effort to survey the presence of historic boats of
all types and sizes. Brochures describing the ACBS
and its objectives will be placed aboard as an invita-
tion to join others concerned with preserving our
On the weekend of February 18-19 the Interna-
tional Directors meeting will be held in Miami to
coincide with the Miami International Boat Show.
Representatives from chapters throughout North
America will be present to enjoy the show, a trip on
the Miami River, and to share their enthusiasm for
old boats. There will be a rendezvous in the Miami
area and a dinner party is being planned.
The Antique and Classic Boat Society is the result
of an informal "gam" session following a rendezvous
in New York in 1974. Owners and hobbyists incorpo-

QE II is commanded by Captain Alan Charles
Bennell. A twenty-five year veteran with Cunard
Line, Capt Bennell exudes that genial, self-confident
air found among the world's top sailors. His ability to
quickly put a person at ease, who might otherwise be
a little overwhelmed by meeting such an august
person, is matched by a charm that one remembers
long after farewells have been made.
The Captain is served by a crew that is concerned
with upholding the reputation of the ship of being the
world's foremost passenger liner.
The ratio of persons on board is one crew member
to every two passengers (1850 passengers to 1000
crew). This surely must be the very epitome of

with two in Florida. Goals of the'organization are to
offer a forum for the exchange of ideas, information,
and experiences, to preserve data and records relating
to vintage boats, to sponsor, promote, and organize
antique boat shows, and to encourage further interest
in these endeavors. A noteworthy activity of the past
year was the Historical Boat Show at the Charles
