Lobster Season's almost here
by Bryan Brooks
It is that time again. The white collar crowd is
getting itchy. More and more, thoughts around
the coffee machine in the morning seem to linger
on that creature. Fantasies of drawn butter, not
sugar plumb fairies, fill your head. Theories are
argued about which spot is better. Smiling faces
in the office tell everyone that they have their own
special place, a sure thing where they never come
up empty handed. Others argue about the best
method to corral the critter. Some say they can do
it better with their own two hands. Others argue
for the goose and grab system. Some tell of the
biggest tail that they had ever gotten. Stories
abound of bad days with six foot seas and murky
waters. Then there is the macho guy in the office,
who tells a tale about the time he disturbed the big
fella -- moray eel -- while sticking his hand in the
coral hole to get at the creature.
What creature? What special spots? What tail,
and whatis a goose and grab system? Up north it
would be the opening of deer season. Down in
south Florida;it can only mean one thing:. the
opening of lobster season.
Man the hunter. Sometimes you wonder just
how far out of the cave we have come. In sober
moments, sometimes you think this is all a dream
and all of us will wake up inside some cold cave
in Europe, 35,000 years ago, wearing itchy
animal skins. If that is true, God, what a
nightmare. If our ancestors could only have
realized what would happen to this planet, maybe
they would have stayed in their caves. Another
story, some other time.
The special two-day sport season is on July
.the 29th and 30th. During'this period, each diver
is allowed six lobsters per diver, regardless of the
amount of divers on the boat. The lobster must be
measured, IN THE WATER, with a legitimate
lobster measuring gauge on the diver. No females
with eggs on her tummy can ever be taken, yet so
many idiots do each year. Those same fools then
wonder why the lobster population is getting
During'the regular season, which opens on
August 6th, divers are allowed six lobsters per
diver, but this time there is another rule that
applies: only 24 lobsters per boat. In other words,
during the special sport two day season, on July
29th and 30th, it doesn't matter how many people
are on the boat, each diver is allowed six lobsters.
THERE IS NO BOAT LIMIT. But after August
6th, those same twenty four divers could only
collectively get twenty four lobsters, period.
During both seasons, the carapace, or shell --
you know, the hard part -- must measure three
inches. That is where the measuring device
comes in handy. Remember, the measuring must
be done on the bottom, in the water. No bringing
the lobster up to the surface and then measuring
them. It's pretty well documented that when you
measure the lobster on the surface, then throw it
back if it is a short, most times a barracuda will
intercept it on its trip back home -- end of lobster.
Please only take your limit. Warriors who
come in dive shops to refill their tanks, and brag
about the hundred lobsters they took, make you
sick. These are.the same people who always
blame the declining lobster population on
The best method for both the divers and the
lobsters, is the goose and grab system. That is, a
diver takes his/her lobster prod and gooses the
lobster out of their coral home into a small fishing
type net. This way the lobster can be measured
down below legally, and safely released if they
are too short, or are a female with eggs.
The problem with using your own hands is
twofold. First, you need gloves. The critter is
thorny, and they can put holes in your hands.
Second, if you grab them, you pull their antennas
off, hurting the lobster. If they turn out to be a
short or female with eggs, and you turn them
loose, they may die or be severely handicapped.
Using a prod and goosing them from behind out
of their holes into your net is easier and best for
Be advised, the Florida Marine Patrol has a
legal right to board your boat at any time and
measure your lobsters. They do a great job,
considering how understaffed they are. If we
follow the rules, their job is easier, and the public
is served better.
Remember what happened last year? A diver
jumped off his boat-into six foot seas during the
early hours of the two-day season and drowned.
The diver apparently hadn't been diving for

Lobsters- Even the pro's can be confused
by Andy Eddy
"What is the basic difference between a
Florida lobster and a Spanish lobster?" The
answer to this confusing question is not at all
obvious. Do not trick yourself into believing that
what the local boat captain or dive shop employee
told you is Gospel. There is confusion with
regard to names and descriptions. I will therefore
attempt to correct that problem by a review of the
Spiny Lobster (Florida lobster), Spotted
Crawfish (Guinea lobster), Smooth-tailed
Crawfish (Brazilian lobster), and the Spanish
Lobster (Shovel-nosed lobster). We will not
cover in depth other look-alikes to the Spanish
Lobster but will be more detailed on the crawfish-
Latreille (literally-lobster with antennae).
Many individuals will tell you that the
Spanish Lobster is a Spotted Crawfish (Guinea
Lobster Panulirus guttatus Latrielle) and there
is no seasonal limit on their capture. The fact that
there is a continuous open season on this species
is correct but the incorrect use and exchange of
names is terribly unprofessional- in many
instances. In reviewing Exhibits A, B and C
below you will note that the Spotted Crawfish
actually resembles the Spiny Lobster but hardly
resembles the Shovelnosed-Spanish lobster
Crawfish, spiny lobster
Exhibit B i
The rare smooth-tailed crawfish (Brazilian
lobster)Panulirus Laevicauda Latreille resembles
the Spiny Lobster (Exhibit A) and the Spotted
Crawfish (Exhibit B). For exhibition purposes
the antennae and legs have been cut short in some
exhibits of crawfish due to limitation of space.
You will note from the Crawfish drawings
(Exhibit D) below that the smooth-tailed lobster
can be distinguished from the Spiny and Spotted
by smoother appearance, a more bluish green to
purplish cast and the large white spots that are
mainly found on the sides of the tail, not on the
Lobster Season -o,, poaeon,,
awhile. He didn't have his air on, didn't have his
fins on, and didn't ditch his weight belt. The
result was a death in ten feet of water. If it has
been a while since you have dove, then check
your gear, and check yourself. You should take a
refresher course, but if you don't do anything
else, put the gear on and jump into your own
pool. Trust me, this will help if you haven't been
diving for awhile.
Don't, whatever you do, go diving for
lobsters, or diving period, if you aren't certified.
Please check in with your local professional dive
shop and take the lessons. This one thing comes
back to haunt those of us in the diving industry
The other thing that haunts us more and more
concerns boats. Watch out for boats. Fly your
dive flag. Flvinog th flag is a state law and
signifies there is a diver down below. Remember,
all those fine folks out on 1-95 during the week,
will be out there in boats, some seemingly on
search and destroy missions.
Be careful, take your limit, and enjoy.
The Spotted Crawfish (Guinea lobster) and
the Spiny Lobster ( Florida lobster) differ as
Panuirus laevicauda .
(after Opresko et al, 1973)
1. Spotted Crawfish (Guinea lobster -
Panulirus Guttatus). Very dark green to purplish
blue and closely covered with white spots over
the carapace, tail, walking legs and antennae. It is
nocturnal in its movements and a smaller size
species. I was told it is generally about a pound
to a pound and one half in size inhabiting rocky
areas and coral reefs. It is much less commonly
found than the Spiny Lobster.
2. Florida Spiny Lobster Panulirus argus-
Latreille is the most common crawfish found in
our waters reaching a weight of over 30 pound.
Because of overfishing few large sized lobsters
of this type are found today. This species is
greenish, brownish-blue to dark mahogany red
with a few large yellowish spots on the tail and
carapace. Since they are heavily fished wherever
they live a closed season generally runs from
March 21 through July 21 each year. One must
consult the State and Federal authorities regarding
the dates as there is a variance and violators face
stiff penalties. Ignorance is no excuse.
According to Harold W. Sims' research,
Spiny lobsters mate in late winter or early spring.
Spawning begins in April and lasts through
August. As eggs begin to ripen, the females
migrate to deeper water where hatching takes
place. The tiny flat and transparent one-eyed
larvae quickly rise to the surface where ocean
currents carry them away. These phyllosomes
remain at the mercy of ocean currents-for as long
as nine months traveling great distances. After
metamorphosis, the postlarvae (tiny lobster) fall
to the bottom of the sea seeking shelter along
shallow coastline waters. As the young grow the
older lobsters move offshore into deeper waters.
Any diver caught removing egg-laden or smaller
young lobsters from our Florida waters faces
serious penalties and justifiably so. Theory
indicates that the bulk of our lobsters arrive here
as postlarvae offspring of Caribbean Lobster.

Hurricane Emergency Marine
Traffic Broward County
IN THE EVENT of a hurricane emergency,
the Broward County Sheriffs Office will
coordinate the efforts of all municipal Marine
Units in the movement of marine traffic
throughout the waterways in Broward County.
This coordination will commence at the beginning
of a Hurricane watch and terminate three and a
half (3 1/2) hours after the official order to
evacuate the coastal areas by the County
TO MINIMIZE the number of bridge
openings necessary to accommodate marine
traffic traveling on Broward County waterways
seeking safe harbor, the following will apply:
1. Should boat traffic increase to a level
requiring excessive bridge openings, a flotilla
movement program will be implemented. No
specific time sequences will be utilized in moving
flotillas, but movement will be governed by the
number of boats seeking to proceed upriver.
Small boats able to proceed without bridge
openings need not wait for a flotilla.
2. The Ft. Lauderdale Police Department's
Marine Patrol will be deployed in the Intracoastal
Waterway north and south of New River to
supervise arid assist formation of flotillas.
Vessels proceeding north to the New River will
form flotillas in the Pier 66 area, and vessels
proceeding south to the New River will form
flotillas in the Bahia Mar area. As the situation
dictates, Ft. Lauderdale Police Boats will escort
flotillas inland or send them independently in

I have an overheating problem with my V-8
engine. The rubber hose from the engine to the
muffler is very hot and water flow from the
manifold on that side is less than the other side.
The inlet is clear and the pump is working fine.
What can I do to clear this up?
Usually in a case you describe, either the
manifold is bad or the heat riser is clogged with
rust. Remove the hose leading into the riser and
check for water circulation. Clean out the nipple
where the hose hooks up and make sure water
flows through the riser. If bad, you will have to
remove the riser and either clean it out or replace
My tacks have been checked out for
carburetion and have been repaired and reset.
When I reinstalled them, one was 600 rpm's
higher than the other at same throttle setting.
What should I look for or do that can correct this?
Many things can make tachometers read high
or low. A bad ground will cause a tach to read
wrong. The cable setting on your throttles will
cause one engine to run faster or slower. If you
have a synchronizer you can check your engine
speeds and your tach readings. Setting up both
engines, trial and error, to the same speed will
also double-check your tachometer.

I have a cabin cruiser with a (6) six cylinder
diesel engine. My engine cut out while traveling
to the Keys. I got it started but lost rpms,
fluctuating speed, etc. Finally got it back home.
Changed the filter and blew out the lines. Now it
won't start at all. I know I must bleed the air out,
but my manual doesn't show how or where and I
can't find a fuel pump on this engine. The help I
got from my boat agency was nil.
When you blew the lines and changed the
filter you filled the system with air. Fill the filter
with fuel and prime the ejector pump with fuel,
eliminating all air possible in pump. If you can't
find the bleeder valve on the pump loosen or
crack the sleeve nuts on each injector and turn the
engine over to bleed each one separately. As soon
as fluid or diesel oil seeps through, tighten nut.
Engine should then start if that was your
problem. It may start after one or two injectors
are bled, so be careful of all moving parts.
I have an outboard motor that is pitting and
corroding on the lower unit. What could be
causing this? Painting it didn't help at all.
A number of years ago an inboard-outboard
was brought in with that problem. The lower unit
was being eaten up by a paint that was
incompatible with the aluminum lower unit and
electrolysis set in. Also check to see if the motor
is in the water near other boats that are plugged
into the dock with the wrong polarity.
I have an open fisherman with an 150
outboard that slows up at times and takes forever
to pick up again. The gas is clean and the oil
mixture is right. What can be causing this?
You must have a restriction on the gas line or
your filter needs changing. Take off your fuel
pump screen and blow it out. Also check fuel

Ocean Ridge wins bridge battle;
but DOT may win the war
by Craig Lustgarten
Just as David was somehow able to defeat
Goliath, the town of Ocean Ridge has apparently
been able to thwart the Department of
Transportation (DOT) and the City of Boynton
Beach's plans to construct a new four-lane,
twenty-five foot clearance drawbridge 700 feet
north of the existing two-lane bridge on Ocean
In a special administrative hearing held on the
matter, Judge William Kendrick ruled that in
electing to relocate the Ocean Avenue Intracoastal
bridge to the Boynton Beach Boulevard extension
site, the DOT abused its discretionary powers
because "it failed to take into account future as
well as present needs, all pertinent and local
government comprehensive plans, and the total
environment of the community region... ."
His recommended order that the bridge not be
relocated was submitted to Florida transportation
secretary Kaye Herderson, who has 90 days to
issue DOT's final decision. Should Henderson
overturn the administrative hearing officer's
verdict, the cased could most likely be reviewed
by the Florida Fourth District Court of Appeals.
Hugh MacMillan, Jr., attorney for petitioner
Dr. Augusto Lopez-Torres and intervenors the
Town of Ocean Ridge and the Audubon Society
of the Everglades, stated, "Basically, we were
delighted with the order of the hearing officer, we
believe it is correct as a matter of law and public
MacMillan added, "The case is also an
important precedent for Florida, because it holds
that a government agency can be held accountable
at the planning stage of a major project. This
could mean millions of dollars of savings for
taxpayers on public projects that are ill-
Judge Kendrick's ruling agreed with Ocean
Ridge's contention that construction of the bridge
would have a negative impact on the
environment in the area. Kendrick wrote that if
the bridge were constructed at the new site, the
result would be direct elimination of one acre of a
40-acre mangrove forest on the east side of the
Maxine Ferguson, attorney with the
Department of Transportation, said she will file
several exceptions to the ruling, and they will be
submitted to DOT secretary Henderson.
Ferguson stated that she feels judge Kendrick
substituted his judgment for that of the
department's on matters that were-within the
agency's discretion, and that many of his findings
were not supported by competent evidence in the
Ferguson declared, "I feel that DOT did a
valid study on the project taking into
consideration all elements that the applicable
statutes required; I feel the department did not
abuse its discretion in deciding to relocate the
Dr. Lopez-Torres, who has fought Boynton's
and DOT's plans to go ahead with the project for
over 10 years, commented, "We expect the ordeal
to finally be over. All parties involved had a
chance to promote their arguments, and the
outcome has shown that DOT won't be serving
the public interest if they overturn this decision."
Lopez-Torres has been very concerned about
where this project would be built, because it
would take up all sections of the street that he
lives on and would also adversely effect Ocean
Ridge's town hall.
For years the rumor mill along the docks has
speculated on increasing the number of
passengers that an uninspected boat could carry.
Existing regulations limit that boat to not more
than six paying passengers.
Chances of this change coming about are slim
to none. However, an upcoming rewrite of the
regulations for inspected boats (those carrying
more than six passengers), invites comments
from the industry in formulating the new policies
of this section called Subchapter T of Title 46,
Code of Federal Regulations. Because of the
subchapter designation, these inspected boats are
commonly called T-boats.
T-boats are those passenger boats allowed to
carry more than six, such as paddlewheelers,
deep sea fishing or dive boats, small ferry boats,
dinner-dance boats, etc.
The invitation to comment opens the door for
the boating public to ask for simplified inspection
requirements and procedures for many of those
boats commonly used today as six-pack boats.
Obviously the 16-foot runabout is not likely
to be a candidate for CG inspection to carry more
than six. The 26-foot open fisherman may well
be inspectable for 9 to 12 passengers. Certainly
the 35-foot Pacemaker should be eligible for an
easy inspection to carry 12.

The crushing loss for DOT in this decision
has put a serious cramp in Boynton Beach's
downtown redevelopment plans, as the city was
counting on the bridge to anchor a whole series of
projects, including a proposed marina.
Boynton Beach attorney Raymond Rea
commented, "Ultimately, it will be a while
before downtown redevelopment plans can be
etched in stone, as people perceive the bridge as
the key to the whole thing."
Since the licensing regs were just finalized, it
is not likely that the Coast Guard will consider
any time in the near future allowing a six pack
licensed captain to carry more than six passengers
on his uninspected boat. However, the invitation
to get involved in the upcoming T-boat regulation
changes opens the door to requests for
simplification of the requirements on inspected
boats carrying 12 or less.

Speeding boaters anger
One would have to be a New York taxicab
driver to successfully navigate the Intracoastal
Waterway (ICW) through Ft. Lauderdale, advises
yachtsman and former anchorman, Walter
Cronkite in a guidebook he helped write.
The owner of a local water taxi company calls
the stretch of the ICW north of Sunrise on up to
Commercial a "no man's land" of people "mixing
alcohol, speed and boats." Said Steve Halbrook,
"We've seen everything possible on that
With sections of the waterway nicknamed
"Hell's Gate" and "Bongo Strait," an angry
crowd of people who live mostly on the ICW
met with Florida Marine Patrol officials
complaining that speeding watercraft that throw
high wakes in areas jammed with boat traffic
endanger other boaters and waterfront residents.
"Yachting's version of the pit bull problem"
is what resident Mimi Gillet refers to as the ICW
from Bahia Mar south and west to the Lauderdale
Yacht Club. Gillet and some her neighbors would
like the state to impose a "no-wake" on that
portion of the waterway.
Many at the workshop conducted by
Captain-Allan Richards of the Florida Marine
Patrol would like to see the entire ICW in
Broward County designated a "no-wake" zone.
"To preserve life and limb, we must slow the
thundering herd to a crawl," declared George
Storrs of Southeast 9th Street at the workshop
held at Fort Lauderdale City Hall in June.
The Florida Marine Patrol is conducting a
series of meetings up and down the coast to
determine whether to create additional no-wake
zones on the ICW. It will take months to draft
new rules, if warranted, cautioned Captain
Currently the Intracoastal speed limit is 30
mph except within a few hundred feet of bridges
crossing it in Broward County.
Waterfront neighborhoods address traffic problems
by M. G. Swift
Two other waterfront neighborhoods in Ft.
Lauderdale are following Riverside Park's lead
with proposals to restrict through traffic on their
streets. Registered voters and/or property owners
within River Oaks/Croissant Park will be voting
on a "Neighborhood Master Plan," Saturday,
July 29th. Tarpon River residents plan to vote
The River Oaks proposal cals for Southwest
9th Avenue to be closed at State Road 84 (while
allowing access from the north into Southland
Shopping Center) and closing the southbound
lane only at Davie Boulevard to allow
neighborhood traffic only at Davie.
At Southwest 15th Avenue and 20th Street a
median would be constructed to restrict left turns
from westbound 20th Street onto 15th Avenue.
All other access to and from 15th Avenue and
20th Street which features four boatyards -
will not be interrupted, according to traffic plan
Developers will be independently responsible
for the impact of their projects on the
neighborhood and required to finance solutions to
increased traffic caused by these projects. Both

Two public workshops are planned in July to
go over River Oaks' master plan: Saturday, July
22nd, 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Thursday, July
27th from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at Westminster

President's Offshore Taskforce
accepting letters until July 15th
President Bush's Offshore Oil Taskforce has
set a July 15th deadline on written comments
from the public regarding oil leasing and drilling
in sensitive marine areas off southwest Florida
In early March, President Bush appointed this
Outer Continental Shelf Leasing and
Development Task Force to address offshore oil
issues and concerns. Their report to the President
is due in January, while the official
Congressional moratorium on oil drilling off the
Everglades and Florida Keys expires in
"This means that drilling could start as early
as February 1990 in 73 Southwest Florida
offshore tracts already leased. Unless that is
prevented, scientists agree that a spill from one of
those sites could be transported by the Loop
Current right into the coral reefs of the Middle
Florida Keys" noted Alexander Stone, with
Project Reefkeeper, dedicated to protecting coral
Letters to the Taskforce should be sent to
Robert Kallman, OCS Leasing & Development
Taskforce, Department of the Interior, Room
7610, 18th & C Streets NW, Washington, D.C.
South Florida's oil &
gas leasing chronology
In 1984, the federal government
first offered leases south of 26 degrees
north in the eastern Gulf. The state
objected to leasing in this area.
Congressional appropriations language
allowed leasing to proceed with a
moratorium on exploratory drilling until
three years of environmental studies
being conducted by the Department of the
Interior (DOI) could be completed.
In 1985, the DOI again offered this
area for lease under the state's objection.
The same restrictions on exploratory
drilling were imposed by the DOI.
March 1986 -- Governor Martinez-
first expressed his opposition to leasing
in the area south of 26 degrees north in
comments on the 5-Year Leasing
Program for 1987-1992.
June 1987 -- An independent sci-
entific review of the DOI studies in this
area indicated that while the studies added
to our basic knowledge about the area,
they failed to adequately assess the
potential for impact from oil and gas
activities to the South Florida area.
March 1988 -- After extensive
negotiations, DOI removed approxi-
mately 11.0 million acres surrounding the
Keys from the 5-Year Oil and Gas
June 1988 -- DOI removed an
additional 14.0 million acres south of 26
degrees north from the November 1988
sale. Subsequently, Congress imposed a
one-year ban on leasing and drilling in
the area until October 1989.
June 1988 -- Former Secretary
Hodel and Governor Martinez agree to
participate in two state-federal task forces
to address Florida's concerns regarding
oil spill risks and drilling impacts in the
area south of 26 degrees north. Final
reports are expected in June 1989.
November-December 1988 --
Florida, acting under the Coastal Zone
Management Act, found UNOCAL's and
Mobil's plans to drill northwest of the
Dry Tortugas inconsistent with its
approved State Coastal Management
February-March 1989 -- President
Bush announced intentions to indefinitely
delay further leasing off Southwest
Florida until environmental concerns
could be satisfactorily resolved. A
Presidential Task Force was formed and
began its work.

Reef Sweep nets
80 bags of trash
Over 80 bags of garbage were collected by
130 divers in Broward County-coastal waters
during the first annual Reef Sweep on Saturday,
June 10. The event was sponsored by Ocean
Watch Foundation to heighten public awareness
of the need to protect fragile living coral reefs.
Aside from the usual assortment of cans,
bottles, rope and monofilament, divers
discovered an array of unusual items. Among
them werea Bimini boat top, several knives,
windsurfing board and a gold earring.
Thirteen boats participated in the cleanup and
5 charter captains contributed their proceeds from
the day toward the mooring buoy project of
Ocean Watch. The participating captains were
Walt DeMartini, Bob Good, O. J. Holden, Sam
Rich and Gary Thomas, with donations totalling
$2,700. These permanent mooring buoys have
proven to be successful in the Keys in greatly
reducing anchor damage to living corals.
A fund-raising party for Ocean Watch was
held that night at Tugboat Annie's in Dania.
Numerous dive shops, manufacturers and charter
boats donated prizes to a raffle, which netted over
Also at the party, two new buoy sponsors
presented their checks for $500 to Ocean Watch.
They were the Pro Dive Shop at Bahia Mar and
David Bateman Landscaping.
The single largest contribution of the evening
came from the South Florida Fishing Classic,
Inc. for $2,500 as part of their continuing effort
to support environmental causes.

shipwreck was the father's close, almost lifelong
friend and associate, advanced diver, Bob
The popular Broward sea mount where the
memorial was placed is the wreck of the Jay
Scutti. The Jay Scutti, a 97-foot tugboat, was
purchased by Jay Scutti's father, Dale Scutti.
Dale Scutti bought the derelict tugboat and gave it
to the county to be sunk for the use of local and
visiting divers. The wreck lies in 80 feet of water
just east of Ireland's Inn, off FL Lauderdale.
Jay Scutti was a scuba diver, who, when in
Ft. Lauderdale, dove the local reefs. Jay was 27
years old when he was killed in a car crash near
his home in Rochester, New York.
The shipwreck has been in place since
September, 1986, when it was sunk as one of the
many artificial reefs put down by the Browardr
County Beach Erosion Control unit, headed by
The Jay Scutti ranks right behind Molly
Wilmot's Mercedes I, as a Ft. Lauderdale dive
attraction for SCUBA divers from all over the
world. Some instructors prefer the Jay Scutti as a
.. _g o uno to e M.erse-'t I, T 'e~.. it is
in a shallower depth, which gives their divers
longer and safer time below.
Another reason the Jay Scutti is preferred is
because instructors can take their fledglings from
one end of the ship to the other, being completely
enclosed, and yet be safe. The wide open engine
room allows wreck diver trainees to reel
themselves on a line from one end to the other, do
a mask off drill, and safely follow the line back to
the open deck, where thousands of coral fish
usually greet them.
Near the wheelhouse of the Jay Scutti, a four-
foot barracuda, named Captain Barry -- a diver's
derivative for barracuda -- usually patrols.
Though large and fearsome looking, with sharp
teeth and a mouth that constantly opens and
closes, the barracuda is harmless. Some
divemasters. even hand feed him, or her, to the
delight of tourist divers.
A large octopus and some friendly moray eels
complete the crew of the sunken tugboat that has
become a bheatifijl coral ref. 2 gift ivupn to
divers by a man who couldn't quite say goodbye
to his son.
LOOE KEY NATIONAL MARINE
SANCTUARY, Florida Keys -- In an
orchestrated effort aimed at snorkeling and scuba
diving enthusiasts, the scenic coral reefs of the
Florida Keys will come alive with the sounds of
music at the Fifth Annual Underwater Music
Festival Saturday, July 8.
Beginning at 2 p.m., three hours of
commercial-free music, selected by divers to
specifically enhance the underwater experience,
will be broadcast over the colorful seascapes of
Looe Key reef -- located five miles south of Big
Pine Key -- organizers expect to create an
undersea symphony of ethereal proportions.
"When music is broadcast underwater it
seems to envelope you from all directions," said
Bill Becker, coordinator of the event. "Because
sound travels five times faster underwater than it
does in the air, it generates an unforgettable
Musical styles featured during the broadcast
come from such well-known artists as Jimmy
Buffett, the Beach Boys and Steel Drum Virtuoso
"We will be playing music that enhances the
undersea nerience," said Steve Miller, music
director for the event. W' nutting island
music beneath the sea."
Divers participating in the Underwater Music
Festival may charter space aboard boats from a
number of dive operators in the Lower Keys.
Visitors and residents with their own boats can
launch at several ramps in the area.
Water temperatures in July average in the mid-
80's (Fahrenheit) and underwater visibility
(contingent on weather conditions) frequently
exceeds 50 feet.
Another feature of the event will be a live
underwater broadcast by Becker, who will give
listeners reports on reef conditions and public
service announcements on marine preservation.
He will utilize a special underwater microphone
that will carry his words to the surface, to be
transmitted back to the radio station and then
broadcast over the airwaves and back underwater.

Sailing study shows solid market opportunity
CHICAGO A maturing American
population coupled with the strong appeal of
sailing offers a solid market opportunity for the
sailboat industry; this was the overall picture
painted by a recently completed in-depth profile
analysis of the industry's customers, present and
future, unveiled by the National Sailing Industry
Association (NSIA) in June.
Interviews with present owners, "hot
prospects" and potential future prospects, make it
clear that the major attractions that draw people to
sailing are the relaxation it offers, coupled with
the rewarding challenge of sailing, and the
opportunity for those hordes of emerging baby-
boomer families to enjoy a lifetime sport together
- for "bonding" opportunities offered by the
"I am really encouraged by the results," said
American Sail's David Stanton, chairman of the
NSIA. "It's clear that there is a strong segment of
hot prospects in the market today who plan to
buy within the next two or three years, plus a
healthy number of families who fit the
demographic profile of the prospective purchaser
who, though they presently are not involved
enough in sailing to be lured into buying,
nonetheless consider themselves possible sailboat
In addition to profiling tne "not
prospect" which the study team defined as a
person who was hooked enough on sailing to
take sailing lessons the researchers found a
relatively high passion for sailing remaining even
among those contemplating selling their boats. It
was clear that these people are not leaving sailing
to get into powerboat ownership, but rather
attribute the change to their personal
circumstances lifestyle changes, family
situation changes, financial pressures, for
example. In light of their vestigial passion for
sailing, most will continue to sail with friends
(cited as one of sailing's strong appeals).
Highlights of the findings include:
*Recent boat buyers averaged 42 years of age,
well educated and family people 73% married
with children under 18 at home, well above
*Boat buyers are dual earner families with
average annual incomes of $87,000. They feel.
"well off" and not under a lot of financial
pressure as they enjoy their predominantly
suburban, balanced, socially active lifestyle. For
half of them, sailing is a truly favorite activity,
and for the next 25% it is a close favorite to other.
*Sixty-seven percent of the recent buyers
consider themselves intermediate or advanced
level sailors; 13% expert, and 20% novices. They
have been sailing for nine years, compared to
most current owners who have been under sail
for between 15 and 17 years.
*Targeted prospects (TPs) those who called
the NSIA number for sailing school information
- have been sailing only slightly less, the study
shows, with eight years of experience under their
keels.. These people have a slightly different
profile than other segments, as might be
*The TPs are younger (average age 38), with the
highest under-30 component of any of the
segments examined, and are above the national
norm for singlehoodd' and live-alones. They, too,
are well educated, but not as affluent ($60,000)
and are the most urban segment (24% are city
*Two out of three Targeted Prospects said they
plan to buy a sailboat within three years. What's
holding them back? In addition to their less
settled state they are concerned about marina and
moorage space, the cost of mooring and
maintenance, and the time to use their boat.
Right now, two-in-five sail at least three times a
*The top reason that sailing is a primary
recreation for the Target Prospects is that it is a
good way to relax from their pressured lives, and
it is personally very fulfilling, fitting their life-
style. In addition, they enjoy the challenges
which sailing presents as opposed to more

Sailing study shows solid market opportunity
passive relaxations. And
it is'a good family
The study, conducted by the Daniel
Yankelovich Group; was commissioned by the
NSIA to provide qualitative information.on the
sailboat market today who the owners are,
who the "hot prospects" are, -and what share of
the general potential market might-become
prospects. It also sought to determine what it is
about sailing that pulls these people into the sport
and what market bars might exist in their
minds that the industry needs to address.
Six hundred direct interviews were
conducted, half of them with current market
segments such as recent buyers, long-term
owners, and persons with their boats up for sale,
and the other half with market prospects those
who called the NSIA toll-free number for sailing
lessons, and an equal number of people
considered "unsuspecting prospects." This latter
group was defined as families with appropriate
demographics (at least 25 years of age, minimum
household incomes of $50,000, and in the same
market region as current owners/recent buyers).-
"There were no major surprises in the
demographic profiles of the groups," said
NSIA's. George Rounds. "The strong 'boomer'
market is evident, but there are lifestyle changes
toward a stronger family focus and more relaxing
activities that provide opportunities for the sailing
industry to convert more of that huge consumer
group that is moving through the American
markets to sailboat ownership. They are basically
your age-40-plus upscale market.
"It's clear that all segments generally view
sailing as a form of recreation rather than a
sport," Rounds said. "Yet all segments also
acknowledge that sailing has that extra 'plus' of
challenge that makes it so rewarding. for the
On the other side of the scale, the
unsuspecting prospect that sailor's neighbor
who fits the economic and regional profile but has
not bought his or her first sailing magazine,
approximately 10% are "open to the idea of
sailing as a leisure activity" while the remaining
90% admit that sailing has no appeal for them.
It's not a question of hassle or cost or lack of
knowledge about the sport. That 90% who could
go sailing but don't just are not interested right

"Make $1,000 a week with only a hacksaw,"
say the ads in home workshop magazines,
offering to sell you lessons in making furniture
from plastic pipe.
PVC chairs and chaises are great for mega-
yachts, but even those of us with more modest
boats can use this modern miracle piping in
dozens of ways. Most of the marine accessories
we have were free, made from pipe scraps left
over from home plumbing jobs.
Plastic pipe comes in a dozen diameters from
pencil thin to sewer size and in colors ranging
from beige to black. Chances are you can get all
you need from the scrap pile but, even if you buy
new, it costs only pennies. The cheapest grades
will do for any of these projects:
Rod holders. Choose the diameter you
need (probably about 2" or 2 1/2") and cut to
length. Then heat the pipe by holding one end in
very hot water until it's supple. Force down over
a bottle top (a returnable type glass pop bottle is
about right) to flare the top.
Drill the bottom so you can put a stainless
steel bolt through the diameter, to keep the rod
from falling through. Or, if you want a rod
holder for surf or shore fishing, cut off the
bottom at a sharp angle that will dig easily into
the sand or dirt.
Rod storage. Use lengths of PVC pipe in
the right diameter(s) to hold and protect fishing
rods underway. You might add extra rod storage
under the gunwales, overhead in a wheelhouse,
vertically on the center console, or in any odd
spots around the boat where you have room.
Chart storage. Today's charts are too
costly to abuse with wetting and folding. With
PVC pipe you can make tubes to hold rolled
charts. If you have to mount them in a wet area,
glue on threaded fittings that take threaded plugs.
They're available in home centers.
Bottle stowage. Measure the bottles you
use in your typical bar set-up so youll get pipe in
the right diameters. A 3" thin wall pipe is about
right for 750 ml wine and liquor bottles; 4" pipe
is better for quarts and liters; go larger still for
two-liter and specialty bottles. Then fit them into
a suitable bin or drawer. They may need no
Pigeon holes. There are dozens of spots
aboard your boat where you can make neat,

usable stowage with hunks of pipe. You might,
for instance, cut several 6" pieces of 3" pipe,
band them into a bunch with duct tape, tie wraps,
line, or plastic banding, and use them to store
rolled-up sun hats or line-handling gloves. Band
together short lengths of larger diameter pipe to
corral rolled-up sweaters, or pairs of shoes.
Header tank. Also called an accumulator
tank, this is simply a "head" of air pressure that
evens out the flow in your pressure water system.
Your water pump works only at intervals instead
of every time you- draw a drop of water. The
larger the accumulator, the less often the pump
runs. We made ours from a length of PVC pipe
and two caps. Drill and thread the bottom cap to
take a pipe fitting, or glue in a PVC fitting that
will tee into your water line.
Sewer hose stowage. If you need a sewer
hose to empty the holding tank in your boat, stow
this unpleasant piece of equipment in PVC pipe.
It won't rust or corrode, will keep contamination
away from everything else in your boat, and can
be hosed clean as necessary.
Rub rail. The rub rail that came with your
boat may be a type that consists of female channel
filled with some sacrificial substance, such as a
rubbery strip or nylon rope, that takes all the
wear. When it comes time to replace this part, see
if you can't do it cheaper with plastic pipe than
with the fillers sold for this purpose. One-inch
plastic pipe will slide into channel designed to
take 1" rope.

Guide to Abaco
by Milt Baker
Have you seen the brand new Small Boat
Sailor's Guide to Abaco?
The good news is that it's hot off the press,
very up-to-date, and sells for only $2.50. And at
that price it's a bargain.
Author-publisher Steve Dodge, a historian by
trade and part-time Abacos resident by preference,
has aimed his 28-page booklet at small boat
sailors "power and sail."
It makes a nice companion to the two old
standards: Julius Wilensky's Cruising Guide to
the Abacos and Northern Bahamas (1980
edition, $24.95) and Meredith Fields'
Yachtsman's Guide to the Bahamas ) 1989
edition, $18.95). But it's no substitute.
There's lots of good, solid information about
cruising the Abacos in the new guide but it lacks
much of the detailed information we've come to
expect in first class cruising guides. If your boat
can travel to the Abacos on her own bottom,
you'll want more than this guide offers.
Where the old standards provide dozens of
original sketch charts covering the Abacos, for
example, the new guide provides only fourteen --
with the usual warning that they're not to be used
And they may be serviceable, but Dodge's
sketch charts have little of the elegance of those
drawn by Harry Kline which grace the pages of
the Yachtsman's Guide. Nor do they have the
clarity and detail of those in Wilensky's book on
In a guide as short as 28 pages, there have to
be compromises, and Dodge's guide is full of
On the plus side are tide tables running from
July 1989 through December 1990, a short
history of Abaco, and the most up-to-date
information on facilities ashore.
What's missing, however, is a coherent
overview of cruising the Abacos, good
organization, and a section on what the first-time
Abacos cruiser can expect.
But, hey, what do you expect in a brand new
guide for two and a half bucks? At that price, the
new guide represents a good investment -- but
only as a supplement to the other guides.
If you're heading to the Abacos for Race
Week, you'll find all three of the guides'

Created for Hemingway scholars and literary
aficionados -- a two-day seminar on
"Hemingway in Key West" features panel
discussions a well as informal gatherings with
Hemingway family members, films and
presentations by noted scholars.
This year's symposium focuses on the
author's relationships with women who
influenced his writings. Dr. James Nagel, author
of a recently published book examining the
relationship between Hemingway and his World
War I nurse, Agnes vonKurowsky, highlights
the discussion with the first public disclosure of
materials from her diary. In addition, Dr. Linda
Wagner-Martin, author of more than 25 books
including "Hemingway & Faulkner:
Inventors/Masters," will discuss Hemingway's
In a rare tribute to the national -- and
worldwide --- popularity enjoyed by
Hemingway's books and persona, the U.S.

author Ernest Hemingway, the United States
Postal Service will honor the tiny island as
exclusive site of the first day issue of a
commemorative stamp featuring the author's
A highlight of the Ninth Annual Hemingway
Days Festival, at 10 a.m. Monday, July 17, the
Hemingway postal mark will go on sale for the
first time a day before it becomes available across
the country. Set at the Hemingway Home &
Museum, an opening-day commemoration
celebration features scheduled appearances by
postal officials and local Keys dignitaries, with a
special address by Senior Assistant Postmaster
General, David Charters.
Featuring Hemingway's celebrated likeness
on a commemorative stamp is a tribute to the
national -- and worldwide -- popularity the
author's works still enjoy, even now, many years
after his death.
An honor traditionally reserved for the city
best identified with the stamp's subject, Key
West was chosen as the site of "first issue" --
postal lingo meaning where the stamp first is
placed into service -- as Hemingway's home
when he wrote some of his most popular and
critically acclaimed works.
"The United States has a long tradition of
remembering distinguished Americans on its
postage," said Jim Murphy, spokesman for the
U.S. Postal Service in Washington "We
thought the Hemingway Days Festival would be
the appropriate venue to issue a stamp in honor of
this great author and adventurer."
The ninth annual Hemingway tribute, July 17-
23, salutes Hemingway's dedication to his
writing and love of the Key West lifestyle. The
seven-day celebration includes a host of activities
reminiscent of Hemingway's life and times
including a world-famous Hemingway look-alike
contest, a literary seminar, big game fishing
tournament, a writing competition and arts
People unfamiliar with philately -- stamp
collecting -- might not know that a "first issue"
designation is of great importance to collectors
who will flock to Key West on the appointed day
to pick up a cancelled 25-cent stamp.
Postal officials anticipate the Hemingway
issue will draw tremendous attention from the
estimated 20 million stamp collectors in the U.S.
and millions more worldwide. "Hemingway's
works have been translated across the globe. We
are expecting this stamp to be hit with all kinds
of stamp enthusiasts, from casual collectors to
serious philatelists," Murphy revealed.
In addition to the many collectors expected to
be in Key West just for the July 17 first issue,
Murphy anticipates hundreds of thousands of
philatelists will contact the Key West Post Office

Ski club to perform July 4th
by Craig Lustgarten
Water skiing without skis, known as
"barefooting," has taken a toe hold on the Gold
Coast Ski Club as of late.
Club president Larry Dunn said that the club
is attracting more barefoot water skiers than ever.
As a result, Dunn is looking for a lake in the
South Palm /North Broward area to be utilized
for barefoot tournaments and practices.
The Gold Coast Ski Club will be hosting the
Barefoot Waterski Challenge at Mills Pond Park
in Ft. Lauderdale on July 22 and 23. It's a two-
day event in which skiers from all over the six-
state southern region compete against each other
in three categories -- tricks, wake crossing and
jumping. One of the toughest of the three events
is the wake crossing competition, where skiers
cross the wake of the boat as many times as
possible during two 20-second passes. There will
be several divisions in the Barefoot Challenge,
ranging from novice to top world competitors in
the open division. Winners in each division will
receive trophies and increased ratings which
could qualify them for state, regional, and
When asked if barefoot waterskiing is just a
little harsh one one's feet, Dunn responded: "The
skin of one's foot will initially get sore and red,
but over time as you continue to practice it
toughens up and pain becomes less of a
The Gold Coast Ski Club is one of the area's
most active water ski clubs, and was incorporated
as a non-profit group in 1971. In the early days
of the club, tournaments were held at Delray's
Lake Ida. The club showteam still practices there,
but now there are different sites that are used for
tournaments, including Mills Pond Park, which
is located off Powerline Road between Oakland
Park and Sunrise Boulevards. The club has
exclusive rights to use this park for its three-event
tournaments; and club members may practice on
Dunn stated, "In order to hold a tournament
you need to have a controlled site, free from any
general boating traffic to give consistent water
skiing conditions to every competitor. Mills Pond
Park gives us that."
In addition to barefoot tournaments, the club
holds a few three-event tournaments throughout
the year. Three-event tournaments differ from
barefoot competitions in that one or two skis are
used by the participants. The competitors in these
tournaments battle each other in three categories
- slalom, trick skiing and jumping. Perhaps the
most exciting of these three events is the jumping
competition, where skiers fly off a ramp at
speeds of close to 70 miles per hour and travel
distances that can surpass 200 feet.
The driving forces behind these outstanding
tournaments are Charlotte Melchers and Richard
Botting, who have worked diligently with the
City of Ft. Lauderdale to procure and retain use
of the park. The tournaments are also benefitted

by the approval of the American Water Ski
Association (AWSA), the nationally recognized
governing body of water skiing.
One of the most exciting spectacles one can
catch is a performance of the Gold Coast Ski
Club's showteam. This group recently performed
two shows at C. B. Smith park in Pembroke
Pines in honor of that city's 30th birthday
celebration. The showteam practices on
Saturday at Lake Ida and will be performing in
two shows on July 4, one at the city of West
Palm Beach's downtown celebration along
Flagler Drive and then later oh that evening at
Royal Palm Beach's festival.

Saltwater fishing license approved
by M.G. Swift
Anglers fishing from boats in Florida's
saltwaters will have to have a license to do so
after January 1, 1990.
Saltwater fishing license revenues will go
towards restocking the state's dwindling marine
fisheries, according to the new tax bill passed in
June by the Florida Legislature. Previously,
saltwater fishing was untaxed.
A saltwater fishing license will cost Florida
residents $12 per year and $30 a year for non-
residents (visitors can also get a seven-day
license for $15). Ocean-going charter fishing
boats will pay annual fees of from $200 to $800,
depending upon their size (anglers on such craft
will not have to buy individual licenses). Special
$2 tags will be required for keeping snook and
lobster in addition to the new license.
Also exempt from the license are anglers
under 16 and over 65, and anyone who fishes
from the shoreline, bank or anything attached to
the shoreline (such as a fishing pier or bridge).
. The Fourth Annual Ladies' Fish-off was held
on Saturday, June 17, 1989, in Pompano Beach.
The female-only, saltwater sportfishing
tournament was held for the benefit of Kids in
This year's event included 166 registered lady
anglers aboard 99 boats. The tournament is
organized and directed by a committee of seven
The title "Top Lady Angler" was awarded to
the angler earning the most points for her catch
from nine categories of fish. White and Blue
Marlin earned 100 points, and a maximum of 50
points was awarded for other categories.
Trophies and prizes were awarded for all levels
June 10-11, 1989 -
1. Bill Wright, Boca Raton, 30 points;
2. Dennis Theis, Lake Worth, 29 points;
3. E. Switzer, Ocean Ridge, 26 points;
4. Mr. Mathers, Boynton Beach, 26 points.
1. Clinton Etheridge, Royal Palm Beach, 38

1. Pat Barrett, Delray Beach, 44 points;
2. Mark Brisson, Boynton Beach, 5 points;
3. Mr. Risher, Delray Beach, 3 points.
The $17 million expected to be raised
annually by the new fee will be routed primarily
into fisheries research, estuary and ocean habitat
restoration and increased marine patrols for
enforcement. No more than 30 percent can be
allocated to law enforcement. No less than 30
percent must go to research, and no less than 30
percent of the tax revenues can go towards
fisheries enhancement. Only 5 percent can be
used to administer the saltwater licensing
program (this includes the money paid to county
tax collectors and their sub-agents, such as tackle
shops that now get 50 cents per freshwater
license they sell). The remaining 5 percent is
earmarked for publication and a fisheries
In the same measure (CS/CS/SB 9) passed by
Florida's lawmakers on June 2nd, the state's
freshwater fishing licenses will go up from $7 to
$12 per year for residents and from $25 up to
$30 a year for visitors. The resident combination
freshwater fish and hunting license will be
increased from $17 to $22, annually.
