Miami City Commission expected to considered a
revised live-aboard ordinance governing boats in
the community at the scheduled meeting Feb. 28 at the
commission chambers adjacent Dinner Key Marina.
Commissioners passed the Planning, Building and
Zoning Department's ordinance at the Feb 7 meeting,
where live-aboard advocates were heard and voted
down. It was the first reading for the ordinance which
must survive a second reading and passage to become
final. The item was continued from a Planning
Advisory Board meeting of Nov. 28, 1990.
The bill would eliminate live-aboards in a number
of waterfront areas of Miami.
According to Commodore Carl Winkler of the
Coral Ridge Yacht Club, the club -between
Bayview and the ICW in Fort Lauderdale- has replaced

Across the cove from the yacht club, construction
is slated to get under way on the planned Sunrise

a building permit last September.
A group of Coral Bay homeowners is thinking of
filing suit with the developer.

waterfront residents in that city call 786-4200 if they

To the Editor:
With the visions of the ultra modem Whitbread
fleet still on my mind, you have taken me back to
another time of sailing greats with your February front
page story on the Rose Mahoney in Miami.
As a child, I would look at her huge red hull as it
lay high and dry alongside what is now Biscayne
Boulevard in the downtown area. The dismantling
took a long time as the five masts and timbers were
removed and salvaged.
The 1926 hurricane did much damage, but nothing
was more sad than to see the Rose die slowly under
the hammers and saws. Her days were numbered as
they were for all large sailing vessels of her type
anyway. Perhaps, the storm was only a merciful
hastening of the final day.

Waterway speed laws protect people, too
To the Editor:
I am writing to plead for nautical sanity. It is very
nice and quite admirable that one would desire to
create boating speed limits for the express purpose of
protecting the manatees. However, with all due respect
for the manatees, how about protecting me!
As much as I want to see manatees survive, I want
to survive myself and have my children survive. One
way I can protect myself and increase my chances of
survival is to stay off the waters of the great state of
Florida. That is correct. Myself, my family and
thousands of my fellow citizens have been intimidated
off the water by the outrageous excesses of a few.
Boating in Florida has become the province of
those with the biggest engines. Unrestricted and
uncontrolled, monster boats with, all too often, just
plain sociopaths at the helm, have physically driven us
off the water. Gone are the days of the little sailing
fleets. Gone are the days of the rowing shell. Gone are
the days of "just messin' around in boats." It is
physically dangerous to participate in the water-
oriented activities we took for granted a mere half-
In my opinion, the government, our government,
my government(!), has grossly fallen short of its
responsibility to not only regulate the waterways, but
to offer the boater on the public waterways at least
equal protection to that of the motorist on the public
highways. It is preposterous to assume an unregulated
free-for-all on the highways why does my legislature
allow it on the waterways?
In order to earn the privileges of using the public
highways, one must pass a mandatory test,
demonstrate personal competence and prove financial
responsibility. The state requires none of the above for
operating a vessel upon the public waterways. The
legislature requires not even the slightest proof of
competence nor financial responsibility despite the
recognized fact that operating a motor vessel is far
more difficult and requires far more discreet
knowledge than operating an automobile.
Perhaps, the average non-boating person is not

completely aware of what it is like to venture out on the
water say the Intracoastal Waterway anywhere in
Florida. To them I might describe a scene of utter
chaos, the type of chaos that you might imagine on the
state's highways if vehicle operators learned to drive
the way boaters learned to boat. Imagine if no one
driving a vehicle had to adhere to any regulations, nor
even were aware that they existed. Imagine vehicle
operators driving anyplace they felt like, on any side of
the road that was handy, at any speed that pleased
them, making any amount of noise they felt like.
Imagine them zooming past your house at outrageous
speeds, throwing up clouds of dirt into your front
yard. Imagine further that these "motorists" had any
size vehicle at any horsepower they could afford with
absolutely no restriction whatsoever. Why would they
act any other way if all they ever needed to know was
how to start the engine and put the car in gear! I am
sure you do not want our drivers trained like that.
Well, most.of us don't want our boaters trained like
The horror scene I have asked you to imagine is
precisely what Florida boating circa 1990 is like. To
add insult to injury, a significant number of these
careening monsters have no insurance. For a sizeable
majority of these "boaters," a training program consists
of watching a few TV episodes of Miami Vice.
In exactly the way the state regulates automobiles,
the state must regulate boats. There is no constitutional
"right" to destroy public property nor private
tranquility with a boat any more than there is with a
vehicle or an all-terrain vehicle. The state has a duty to
protect the public interest on the waters as on the land.
The size and power of boats must be restricted. The
places they go must be controlled. You cannot, for
instance, allow these powerful boats to operate
unrestricted in shallow waters where the prop-wash'
from their propellers devastates the bottom, destroying
other life forms such as turtle grass and coral, not just
manatees and humans.
It is the responsibility of the state to have licensing

requirements commensurate with the level of skill
required. The state does not allow people to fly
airplanes without a license. Why, then, does it allow
them to operate boats without a license? The
undesirable consequences of unrestricted aircraft
operation is arguably less disastrous than unrestricted
The time to rectify this situation is now. The
overwhelming majority of the boating public is solidly
behind the concept of mandatory education and
licensing, strict licensing. Only after we, the public,
have reasonable assurance that the boat we see bearing
down on us at maybe 100 miles per hour has a person
at the helm who has earned the privilege to operate that
boat by demonstrating competence and responsibility
will we feel it is safe to return to the water.
The manatees can be saved by saving the humans.

I have a twin engine Chris Craft that runs swell. My
problem is the controls on this boat. They don't match
at all speeds. I can set the engines with my
synchronizer but the controls are out of line and I can't
use the dual handles I have. There must be some
adjustments or whatever.
There are adjustments on all control cables on each
end. The length can be set with the clevis and locknut
threads. Also under your controls there are slides that
secure the cables from moving. If they are loose the
cables shift and won't line up. Also on the
transmissions there are plates that must be tight so that
the controls will line up. I would check for loose
connections first and then make all adjustments.
My boat has a real hard time getting up on plane.
I've followed your advice on doing the bottom. I have
moved the load that I carry forward. I have eliminated a
lot of junk and still although it's better, I have a
struggle to get up on plane. My boat digs in most of the
time and still on other times (now) gets up there. What
else to do?
If your fuel tank or tanks are full and mounted in
the floor in the rear you can have a problem. Try
letting the fuel run down enough so that you won't run
out of fuel and see if that helps. I have found putting
two saddle tanks up forward in the boat and not using
the floor tank has cured some of these problems. You
can always install trim tabs. They really do a good

is OK and starts without any trouble. After I'm

What causes that and how can I correct it?
Your problem will become serious unless
corrected. Your hoses are deteriorating and when you
remove them you will see internal cracks and flaking
of the rubber which will get into your pump and clog
the thermostat causing overheating and damage to your

Waterway Cleanup vows to scour the shores
By MIKE DICKMAN
The Marine Industries Association of South
Florida, Inc. has organized the 14th Annual Waterway
Cleanup as a public awareness campaign aimed at
"keeping our waterways clean."
What started as a group of volunteers gathering
together once a year to spruce up the shores has grown
into a major event now involving hundreds of
residents and boats. Last year's Cleanup pulled 429
tons of trash from Broward County waterways.
Whether or not you own a boat, you can play a
role in helping us clean Broward's waterways. In
return for your efforts, you will receive a ticket for
admittance to attend the "trash bash," a celebration
party. There will be food and the chance to win prizes.
Location of this party will be revealed at the Cleanup
To participate, show up at one of the 18 Broward
sites which run from Hallandale to Deerfield Beach,
March 2, 9 a.m. At the site you will receive a
complimentary T-shirt while they last. You need not
own a boat. We need people on the shore to help carry
the garbage from the docks to the receptacles.
Make sure you wear clothes that you won't mind
getting wet and dirty. Please wear work gloves and
you must wear shoes. Sun tan lotion, sunglasses and
hats are also a good idea to protect you from the sun.

Waterway Cleanup is a volunteer community
event. You are responsible for your own actions and
protection, organizers say.
Last year's cleanup resulted in the collection of
more than 429 tons of trash collected by more than
1,500 volunteers and about 200 boats. 266 miles of
waterways in Broward were cleaned from 17 site
locations. Items such as bikes, tires, a safe, and a
abandoned boat were pulled out of the waterways.

Boat setback proposal dead in the water
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
A proposal to establish a five- to ten-foot setback
limit for vessels docked along the canals of the
Lauderdale Isles neighborhood in unincorporated
Broward County was quashed at a recent Lauderdale
Isles Civic Improvement Association meeting.
Lauderdale Isles association president George
Counts stated, "As far as I'm concerned, this is a dead
Back in November, the Marine Advisory
Committee (MAC) of the Broward County
Commission voted to not hear the issue unless the
County Administrator or County Commission chair
expressed an interest in the matter.
John Fiore, liaison to the MAC, stated, "I went up
and down every canal and photographed any violation,
and my recommendation was that there wasn't a
Fiore continued that in the wintertime there are
many more boats parked in the canals of Lauderdale
Isles, but out of the 40 or so potential violations he
found, only 2 or 3 were gross violations.
Al Reed, the main proponent of boating setbacks,
was net with hostility by Lauderdale Isles residents at
the last civic association meeting in late January.
Members expressed their frustration, urging him to
leave the Isles because of his meddling in their affairs.
Reed has apparently decided not to pursue the
issue after the MAC took a look at the situation and
reported its findings. There was little interest in
pursuing the matter at the civic association meeting,
which has hurt Reed's cause as well.
However, Reed defends his views, stating, "I feel
very conscious about the waterways, and my concerns
are that I don't want to saturate the Isles. The intent of
the setbacks was to maintain continuity and build a
buffer between property lines to allow boat owners
Another resident of Lauderdale Isles, Jim
Castagnola, noted that the waterfront community is
fairly well-spaced apart and if you have a large boat,
you only need to go up a few houses to maneuver.
Castagnola added, "It is a very personal issue as to
what each individual owner is doing with his/her
property; I like a zero setback, but I can also see other
people's reasoning for wanting a setback."
John Fiore related that despite the rebuke to
setback proponents, he feels that the issue may not be
totally dead, and that it could resurface sometime in the

Fort Lauderdale Rotary honors contribution to Riverwalk
Members of the Rotary Club of Fort Lauderdale,
the downtown club, admired some of their own
handiwork Jan. 30, holding their monthly meeting on
the banks of the New River, at a gazebo the
organization donated to the city's Riverwalk project.
During the picnic lunch, they recognized the
individual contribution of one of their members, Leon
Sikes, Jr., who donated a $1,500 floor specially
designed for the structure.
To show its commitment to Riverwalk, the city's
revitalization and improvement project, the 185-
member club purchased one of the two gazebos in the
new 10-acre Linear Park on the banks of the New
The Rotary purchased the $20,000 gazebo for the
project, excluding the floor. "We wanted to put
something special on the floor that would show it was
a Rotary project," says Tom Tapp, Rotary president-
elect who organized the project. Tapp conferred with
Leon Sikes, president of Sikes Tile Distributors, Inc.,
about creating the Rotary's symbolic wheel on the
floor in ceramic tile.
"Leon just took off. Before I knew it, he was
telling me his designers were fabricating the tile, when
it was going to be fired and how it would be installed,"
says Tapp, director of parks and recreation for the city
of Fort Lauderdale.
"In the 36 years I've been in the Rotary, both in
Fort Lauderdale and Lakeland, we've accomplished a
lot. Most of it doesn't get a tremendous amount of
public recognition," says Sikes. "My contribution
helped gain some recognition for the Rotary. Of
course, I think it also significantly enhanced the
appearance of the gazebo."
Sikes had custom artwork made of Rotary wheel,
matching every detail including the precise shade of
blue. The artwork was silk-screened by hand onto four-
inch-square white tiles. The screened tiles were kiln-
fired at 2,020 degrees Fahrenheit and came out of the
kiln ready to withstand the foot traffic of an outside

field of red pavers, to provide the interior floor of the
The Rotary gazebo is in Fort Lauderdale's historic
district, the first Riverwalk construction project, just
west of the FEC Railroad between SW 3rd Ave. and
SW 4th Ave. on the north bank of the New River. It is
the largest capital improvement project the downtown
Rotary club has undertaken, surpassing their $15,000
donation to the renovation of George English Park
several years ago.
'The other gazebo is floored with bricks bought by
individuals to help fund the project," explains Bob
Dugan, a planner and landscape architect who helped
design the park. "The material selected for the floor by
Mr. Sikes adds a lot of character and sets off the
Victorian style of the gazebo. This outstanding
contribution by the Rotary and Mr. Sikes adds to the
historic ambiance of the area."
The park's second gazebo, about 300 feet from the
Rotary gazebo, is dedicated to former Fort Lauderdale
City Manager Connie Hoffman, who was city manager
when the Riverwalk project was conceived.

Manatee speed zones enacted in PB
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
In order to protect manatees traveling on the
narrower stretches of the Intracoastal Waterway in
Palm Beach County, the governor and the Florida
cabinet passed a 25-mile-per-hour speed limit for
boaters in three parts of the waterway.
These speed limits, which will be in effect year-
round, will be posted in the Jupiter Sound area, from
the Martin County line to the State Road 707 bridge; in
the Lake Worth Creek waterway, from the Indiantown
Road Bridge to the Parker Bridge in Lake Worth, and
in South Palm Beach County, from the Ocean Avenue
bridge in Boynton Beach to the Broward County line.
These speed zones will supplement Palm Beach
County's manatee protection plan, which was enacted
last year. The plan implemented slow speed andIdle
speed zones in buffer areas extending out from each
shoreline, as well as in specially designated areas
where manatees are frequently found. However, the
channel was left unrestricted in most areas.
It is hoped that the slower speeds in these parts of
the Intracoastal will help reduce manatee deaths and
thus save the species from extinction. Last year was
the deadliest year on record for the animals, with 206
of them perishing throughout the state. Fifty of those
deaths were caused by collisions with boats.
Some state officials are already predicting that
unless the wave of manatee losses is slowed, the
animals may become extinct in as little as 20 years.
Before becoming permanent speed zones, the two
zones in the northern part of the county had the 25
-mile-per-hour limit in effect as a result of an
emergency rule. The third zone was then added, much
to the delight of the city of Boynton Beach and
residents living along the Intracoastal.
Dave Carson, an environmentalist with Palm
Beach County's Department of environmental
Resources (DERM), stated, "The Department of
Natural Resources said that a 50-foot shoreline buffer
in the narrower portions of the waterway was not
enough; they obviously felt something additional had
to be done in those areas to protect the manatees."
Boynton resident Don Balmer and a city official
recently presented a case for protecting the manatee
along Boynton's Intracoastal at a Department of
Natural Resources hearing in Palm Beach. Balmer has
been fighting to protect the manatee, who often swim
by his Intracoastal complex during the day.
David Roach, assistant executive director of the
Florida Inland Navigational District (FIND) said his
agency has contracted with the Florida Marine Patrol to
have one boating safety officer in each county of the
district to provide for increased enforcement of the
manatee speed zones.
FIND will provide officers with 30 speed guns
and 6 digital display boards as part of a public
information program to acquaint the public with the
new rules. Marine patrol officers will perform eight
days of informational programming in each county.
Boaters will be monitored and will be able to tie in the
speed limit into their tachometers. In addition, each
county will have a speed check area, where boaters
will have the opportunity to check their own speed to
see if they are in compliance or moving at the proper
Roach stated, "Initially, this will be a highly
confusing period for boaters it will take numerous
boating trips before they fully understand all the speed
zones on the Intracoastal."
Although the speed zones in the three areas will
have signs posted by the beginning of this month,
actual enforcement is not expected to occur for some
time. There will be an initial period of educating the
public regarding the new rules, followed by a period
where warnings will be given to those disobeying the
law, and then the marine patrol will begin giving
tickets to violators.
Carson related that if people comply with the new
rules, the policy will result in a decrease in the number
of manatee deaths due to boaters. Carson and other
state officials who did a manatee count last year
estimate that there are about 1400 manatees throughout
Florida's Intracoastal Waterway, with 1275 manatees
actually spotted during the counting period.
Despite the new law, many environmentalists and '
state officials are concerned that it won't be enough to
improve manatee numbers and that enforcement will be
a futile effort.
Carson stated, "Enforcement of the new speed
zones is going to be a problem because of the lack of
people to do it. There are usually only about two
officers on the water at any one time and that's not
enough manpower for the 45 miles of Intracoastal in
Palm Beach County."

Puerto Rican invitation to 1st leg of CORT
By MIKE PAULEY
The Caribbean Ocean Racing Triangle (CORT) is
'alive and well!' It's sailboat racing at its best, and the
series is still going strong. Somehow it was construed
that the Puerto Rican leg of the series was not going to
be held. Wrong! It is true that Velasco is no longer the
principal sponsor, i.e., namesake of the first leg of the
CORT series, but the Club Nautico de Puerto Rico is
keeping the tradition alive and well with a great three-
day regatta planned for March 22-24 at Isleta Marina in
Fajardo, Puerto Rico.
Not only have the racing courses been carefully
planned, but the shoreside activities are expected to be
the usual (or maybe not so usual) exciting fare; fashion
shows, "gourmet food, excellent dockage and awards
party are the "norm" for the Puerto Rican regatta.
The local fleet of racing sailboats have been racing
almost every week-end in preparation for another
exciting CORT series. Many of the boats are making
arrangements for the Virgin Island leg of the series. So
watch out, the Puerto Ricans are out to win this year!
Nevertheless, all our Virgin Island friends are
welcomed again this year as always. The CORT
cannot go on without our friends from the Virgin
Islands and other neighboring islands. Come on over,
the water's fine. We extend our invitation to both
cruisers/racers to join in what is expected to be one of
the best sailboat races held this year in the Caribbean.
The press is, as always, welcome!

The Main Brace
Waterfront dining & entertainment round-up
By KEVIN LANE
You might not think of Las Olas Blvd. When you
think of waterfront dining and entertainment but there
is an undiscovered treasure on The Boulevard and it's
all accessible by water!
Since our last column, Mario's East, Eduardo's
and King Tut have opened and Cheeseburger
Cheeseburger is opening soon.
If you're looking for entertainment, you'll find
enough variety to satisfy almost anyone almost
anytime. O'Hara's Pub, for instance, has Juanita
Dixon singing every night of the week! On Monday
and Tuesday, she is backed by a keyboardist and the
rest of the week it's Bob Vandivort and his Just Jazz
group. O'Hara's is a relaxed "Cheers" type of Las
Olas pub. Galleria G'Vanni has entertainment every.
night of the week. The art gallery/restaurant/cabaret
has been 'home' to Monti Rock III, 'a legend in his
own mind.' Jazz song-stylist Joan Cartwright is there
a few nights a week and there are usually some
surprise entertainment like Tiny Tim and Bill Haley's
Comets who have been presented in concert recently.
At the Riverside Hotel there is a standing room
only dinner/theatre production. Mickey Haven's is at
the new million dollar restaurant Mario's East and
when he's not there, the grand piano plays by itself via
a player piano state-of-the-art computer.
At Poets, you can dine to the melodic sounds of
Steve Ramos on Thursday and Saturday from 7-11
Le Dome of the Four Seasons has a new Monday
Melodies promotion that offers 'white glove' service,
Canadian pianist Mario Poulin and a full course prix
fixe dinner in addition to their ala carte dinner menu.
John Nazzari is on the white grand piano in the
legendary penthouse restaurant on Friday and Saturday
night and Eduardo's has reopened and features an
expanded entertainment format. There's live jazz on
Saturday night with the Eddie Crochet Group from
10:00 p.m. To 2:00 a.m. and FREE hors d'oeuvres,
Concert pianist, Marsha Rose is at Eduardo's six
nights a week.
Las Olas is accessible by water taxi, which means
that all of Las Olas Blvd., from the docks at the New
River Bridge to Colee Hammock Park to the private
dock of Le Dome ... to the beach is accessible by
water. This means that the many events that take place

are accessible by water. Visit the Museum of Art or
any number of art galleries on Las Olas from Apropos
which is regarded as America's premier erotic art
gallery, to Childers which features local artists as well
as a rare selection of African art. On March 9th and
10th at Bubier Park the Museum of Art will host its
22nd Annual Las Olas Art Festival and on March 3rd,
you can enjoy more than 50 Rolls Royces and
Bentleys in a fund-raiser that starts at Eduardo's and
goes west on Las Olas. It ends up at Bahia Mar Resort
and Yachting Center where an awards party aboard the
170-foot yacht Lady Windridge will be open to the
public who want to support the Nova University
More than a dozen stores are staying open late a
few nights a week and you can choose from Japanese,
Chinese, French, Italian and now authentic Egyptian
food served in a pita or on a platter at King Tut. II
Giardino's has the happiest happy hour on the
Boulevard and every Tuesday night at Galleria
G'Vanni entrepreneurs and would-be entrepreneurs
drop by for an entrepreneurial happy hour known as
If you haven't experienced the fun, food and
fashions of Las Olas, make it a point to do it this
month. Youll be glad you did.
Dining and entertainment roundup
Cassa Vecchia has won the South Florida
Magazine's Readers' Choice Award as the "Most
Romantic Restaurant in Broward County." Built in
1938 as the Winter home of the Pond's Cold Cream
family, the house has changed several times. It is now
a top restaurant with an exquisite setting that is filled
with antiques and valuable art works. They even have
a beautiful garden where they grow their own herbs!
There are many moderately-priced items from pastas
and thin crust Phyllo Pizzas, to desserts and coffee
drinks. Like many restaurants, Cassa Vecchia is
initiating a new late night policy as a result of the
opening of the new performing arts complex.
There's always something doing at Stan's. It is
considered an institution by many locals as well as

One of the great restaurants on the waterfront is
Yesterdays. It's the kind of place you like to take
special friends .-. particularly out-of-town friends.
It's a good way to show off our city's calibre of
waterfront dining and entertainment. Boasting the 'best
Ladies' Night in town' in the nightclub every
Wednesday and their Thursday "Easy Money" with
great prizes for the sexiest, classiest and most
outrageously-dressed ladies, Yesterday's now has a
special promotion with a grand prize of "five glorious
days and four fun-filled nights in the tropical paradise
of the Hawaiian Island of Kauai."
Lori Conti is a powerful song stylist who is worth
hearing if you like great entertainment. In their
Venetian Showroom you can enjoy Enrique Ringo &
Chip and singing sensation Lori Conti is on hand on
the weekends. Their Happy Hour is daily from 5-7.
For a taste of elegance and romance, slip into
Frankie's. They are open from 5 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. but
don't stop by on Mondays they are closed.
One of the top beach area hot spots is Coconuts. It
has three dining rooms, an imaginative wine list and
entertainment six nights a week. It's a casual place
where you're as likely to see swimmers from the
nearby Swimming Hall of Fame or locals as well as
tourists. Monday and Tuesday nights, Wooden Ships

Fishing March 1991 Waterfront News 15
Club keeps anglers enthused with old and new fishing programs
WEST PALM BEACH whether you enjoy
helping less fortunate kids go fishing, rummaging
through antique tackle or competing against fellow
anglers, the West Palm Beach Fishing Club (WPBFC)
has something to offer to local fishing enthusiasts.
Many of the club's longstanding traditional events such
as the Silver Sailfish Derby, Winter Fishing
Competition and the Summer Membership Fishing
Contest will remain for the most part unchanged.
Modifications to other Fishing Club events should
create additional interest and participation among local
anglers. In March the club will host its Third Annual
Fly Fishing With The Best seminar which is geared to
the saltwater fly fisherman who wants to become a
better angler. The comprehensive one day program
features local and nationally recognized experts who
serve as instructors for the seminar. Sessions on
equipment selection, presentation, fly selection and
"hands on" casting instruction will be featured.
The Fishing Club's Annual Small Boat
Tournament will feature a few new award categories
this year to include inshore species such as
sheepshead, jack crevalle (release) and lane snapper.
Offshore species such as dolphin, wahoo, bonito and
sailfish (release) will continue to be included. The
tournament will remain a "Family and Friends Angling
Event" stressing fine trophies and nominal
merchandise sponsored by local businesses rather than
big dollar awards.
Perhaps one of the most meaningful community
service events the club conducts each August is the
Annual "Kids Fishing Day" program. This year
through the support of dozens of community sponsors
like the Marine Industries Association of Palm Beach

plans to take over 300 underprivileged children drift
fishing. The Kids Day event targets foster children,
inter-city youth and, mentally and physically
handicapped kids that otherwise would not have an
opportunity to go saltwater fishing on a large boat.
Over 70 volunteers donated their time last year to make
the one-day trip a reality.
Anglers having an interest in learning more about
catching sailfish will be able to take advantage of a
new educational program this year. In December the
WPBFC will conduct what will prove to be the most
comprehensive Sailfishing Seminar ever organized.
Some of the best known sailfishermen in Florida will
serve as instructors for this all encompassing event.

Dade's Coast Guard ombudsman of boat builders
By HANK JONES
Just about every boater in Dade County and many
around the world should say "thank you" to David
Churchill, who sits in an office in Miami between
stints in the field. His job is to save you from loss,
from injury, even from death.
Few people thank him. Only a few know what his
job is or how he does it. Yet, were it not for Churchill,
and others across the country like him, our life on the
water would be far more perilous than it is.
Churchill alone may prevent more injuries and
fatalities at sea than a whole boatload of Coast Guard
"We identify areas statistically where there is a
known factor of accident or death potential," Churchill
A Boating Standards technician for the U.S.Coast
Guard, he might be called an ombudsman in another
setting, a fire marshal, building inspector, marine
construction expert and he is all of these things
almost on a day to day basis.
He is one of only a few staff members in the entire
country who work with boat builders to determine that
your boat is safe that construction defects are
prevented or corrected.
"We deal with two areas, regulations and defects.
A manufacturer may be forced to recall a boat or a
boat line if I inspect a boat and find a construction
defect, the manufacturer may be directed to correct it."
Few boat-buyers, and fewer casual passengers,
ever have access to a boat-building operation. The boat
owner neither sees the construction process in the plant
nor understands the rules governing the boat builder.
Churchill becomes the eyes, mind and muscle of
Armed with strong enforcement powers, he
provides assurance that your boat is built in

compliance with regulations.
"Compliance is almost universally good. The
major manufacturers are more than eager to cooperate.
It's the smaller builder who may offer resistance or
attempt to cut a corer," Churchill said.
"Fifty dollars may mean the difference between
sale and no sale when you're building a $1,000 unit."
For builders with little credit and less cash the
temptation is great to spend as few dollars or as little
time and material as possible on the construction of the
unit. The hull, the engine, the collateral gear may never
be stressed to failure.
Here is an area where, "if it ain't broke, don't fix
it," yields to the proposition: "Build it right there'll
be less chance of injury, and it won't have to be
Churchill acts under the authority of the Coast
Guard and the Federal Boating Safety Act of 1971,
which provides for a coordinated national boating
The FBSA's technical manual is more than two
inches thick with pages held in a loose leaf binder so
that amendments may be added or deleted.
There are eight subdivisions in the manual: general
information, electrical system, fuel system, marine
sanitation devices, ventilation, level flotation, safe
loading and safe powering.
The FBSA's technical manual is the "bible" of boat
builders who want to stay on the right side of the Coast
Guard and its inspectors.
Churchill points out quickly that, just as there are
economy -minded builders who sometimes want to
meet minimum standards, there are even more builders
who take pride in hands-on workmanship, and who
produce superior products as a matter of personal
Superior products are produced by small and large
builders alike, he noted.

Churchill routinely visits boat builders and other
marine equipment manufacturers by appointment.
No less important are the calls scheduled with
manufacturers whose products have brought
complaints from consumers.
"With a complaint it's a matter of going in to
determine whether there has been compliance with the
regulations, or whether the individual part is faulty,"
"We try to determine that parts will not fail under
normal use. For example, different standards apply for
a boat designed to travel 50 or 60- miles per hour
versus a john boat."
Often Churchill finds the problem is the fault of an
operator error and he tends to dismiss such complaints.
Should he find a problem with an entire production
line, he makes sure the situation is corrected.
Fuel and electrical systems have been "cleaned up"
since the safety problem was introduced 20 years ago.
Recall notices, however, can continue to cover
page after page each year, with many problems
discovered only after a unit is in production.
Laboratory tests can't match extended use on the water
to reveal problems.
Big builders don't necessarily mean safer boats,
but Churchill pointed out that bigger builders tend to
have engineering staffs. Small builders often utilize
hands-on knowledge based on experience, but they
may also tally costs with a sharper pencil, like anyone
on a tight budget.
Complaints are filed by consumers boat
owners or skippers. "We feel that the consumer is
responsible for bringing safety defects to the attention
of the Coast Guard," Churchill said.

Bahamas considering new duties favorable to charter boats
Lowered taxes, amended duties and a series of
new regulations have been combined to dramatically
enhance the attraction of The Bahamas to pleasure craft
and the charter boat industry. Announced at the
International Boat Show here by Bahamian Prime
Minister Sir Lyndon O. Pindling, the new measures
are designed, he said to "make the blue waters of The
Bahamas the pleasure boat capital of the world."
Coupled with a series of tariff reductions
announced in 1990, the new initiatives encourage boat
owners to operate their charter yachts, bareboat and
crewed party fishing boats from The Bahamas year-
round. the new regulations are effective within the next
New flat duty rate
Commercial charter operators may now establish
operations in The Bahamas on payment of modest flat
duty rates based on the length of the vessel. Operators
who comply with safety and immigration requirements
will be charged, for example, $500 in annual duty for
vessels up to 35 feet; boats 100 to 150 feet in length
will be charged $2,000 per year and larger craft will be
charged $3,000. The fees apply to both crewed and
Crewed and bareboat operators will also be subject
to a fixed cruising fee of four percent, calculated on the
gross amount of charter contracts originating in The
The Bahamas Merchant Shipping Act will possibly
be amended, as well, to further facilitate and encourage
yacht registration, repairs, and storage in The
As a further incentive to commercial operators,
duties on new or replacement parts have been reduced
to 5 percent from 17 percent.
Another important aspect of the new regulation
enables foreign flag vessels to embark and disembark
passengers in The Bahamas. Charter yachts, bareboat

Coast Guard or to the states for boating and fishing
programs," said Richard Schwartz, head of a 380,000-
member boaters' organization. "In addition, the law
passed during the waning moments of the last
Congressional session is fundamentally flawed,
because the law specifically states that the Coast Guard
is under no obligation to provide any service to boaters
even after they have paid the new federal fee."
"Boaters are already paying their fair share of
federal and state taxes and fees," said Schwartz of the
Boat Owners' Association of the United States. He
noted that the federal government expects to collect
$650 million from boaters in "user fees" over the next
five years in addition to another $750 million that
boaters will pay in federal marine fuel taxes.

provided they comply with all government regulations,
inspection and registration requirements. Boats not
based in the Bahamas will be subject to a cruising fee
of $20 per person per week per trip.
Followup to 1990 changes
The new initiatives follow a series of 1990
amendments which enabled boats to sail Bahamian
waters duty-free for one full year. This exemption was
extendable for a second year at a fee of $500. The
1990 measures also drastically reduced import duties
on pleasure boats: to 7.5 percent from 32.5 percent on
30-to-100-foot craft; to five percent on boats over 100
feet; and boats in excess of 150 tons may be registered
"The 1990 amendment has already launched a
chain reaction of marina construction and related resort
and service facility construction throughout The
Bahamas," the Prime Minister said. New hotels and
marinas are under construction at Andros, with major
expansions underway on Abaco, Eleuthera and
"We are excited about our new initiatives and the
warm Bahamian welcome they offer to pleasure
boaters and the entire charter boat industry," he added.

Short-term water conditions improve slightly
By ANN OVERTON
The heavy rains of mid-January and early
February have bought most areas of South Florida a
reprieve from increased water-use restrictions.
However, the South Florida Water Management
District reminds users that conservation is still essential
as March, April, and May traditionally produce the
greatest demand on water supplies.
Additionally, Dade and Broward counties are
taking major steps toward implementing water-
conservation ordinances, as part of the district's six-
point water-conservation plan. The city of Boca Raton
also has begun work on a 10-year plan to introduce a
dual-distribution system to provide reclaimed water for
irrigation for all users east of Interstate 95.
A ban on daytime lawn watering remains in effect
indefinitely for coastal Lee, Palm Beach, Broward and
Dade counties and the Keys. Phase I restrictions
continue for the Jupiter/Tequesta area of Palm Beach
and Martin counties, as well as in the Bonita
Springs/North Naples area of Lee and Collier counties.
"We are quite encouraged that water-use figures
from utilities now show that most water use has
increased very little compared to this time a year ago
when most areas of South Florida were under tougher
restrictions," said John Wodraska, District Executive
Director. "This means that while the heavy rains
helped reduce use, a conservation ethic has taken hold
despite significant population growth."
Since mid-January, most areas of the district
except Dade County received above-normal amounts
of rain, although less than a tenth of an inch has fallen
over South Florida in the past month. The heavy rains
increased available storage of water in the past month
in both the water conservation areas and Lake
Okeechobee, but the total in storage is still below
normal for mid-February.
"We predict that with current rainfall, Lake
Okeechobee will reach approximately 11.5 feet on May
31, nearly a foot higher than it was last year when the
lake dipped to 10.64 feet at the end of the dry season,"
National Week of the Ocean slated for April 21-27
Individuals, businesses, campuses and non-profit
groups across the United States are gearing up to
celebrate the Eighth Annual National Week of the
Ocean to be held April 21-27, 1991.-The event is
chaired by astronaut-aquanaut Scott Carpenter and
sponsored by the marine education program Fort
Lauderdale-based Week of the Ocean, Inc., according
to president-founder Cynthia Hancock.
Joining Carpenter in endorsing the event are the
National Marine Educators Association and a panel of
renowned ocean pioneers including Norman Baker,
Heyerdahl navigator, Ra I & II: Eugenie Clark,
zoologist and shark expert; Sylvia Earle, marine
biologist; Tap Pryor, aquaculture pioneer; Andreas
Rechnitzer, record diver, Trieste; and Stan Waterman,
Emmy award-winning underwater photographer.
The ongoing theme for the event, "Exploring the
Ocean's Influence," lends itself to many types of
events or personal research from the arts to commerce,
from history to foods, from endangered sea creatures
to environmental issues such as offshore drilling or

Wodraska said. "Groundwater levels have increased
significantly along both coasts, except in most areas of
Dade County. These are major improvements over the
conditions we recorded at the end of December.
The daytime watering ban prohibits lawn irrigation
between 9 a.m. and 5,p.m. daily Phase I restrictions
allow lawn watering three days per week between 4
a.m. and 8 a.m. The district's revised water-shortage

the designated irrigation days.
Mooring buoys installed
By MARY BROOKS
Ocean Watch Foundation installed thirty new
mooring buoys off Pompano Beach February 16,
giving boaters an opportunity to tie off to a permanent
buoy, rather than anchoring in sensitive coral reef
The first buoys in Broward County were installed
on Barracuda Reef in 1989, and have proven helpful in
reducing anchor damage to corals. Barracuda Reef has
twenty permanent mooring buoys, and with the new
buoys at the Pompano site there will be a total of fifty
buoys in Broward County waters to help preserve the
coral reef communities.
Ocean Watch Foundation is responsible for the
installation and maintenance of the mooring buoy
system, with a broad base of financial support from
private individuals, corporations, the marine industry
and county government
The buoy system is also partially funded through
the Broward County Office of Natural Resource
The new buoy system begins at the Pompano Drop-
Off, which is heavily used by divers and boaters. The
area is approximately one-fourth mile offshore and
buoys will run south to the wreck of the Copenhagen.
Loran coordinates for the south end of the buoy site are
59737.6 & 13298.7 and for the north end, 62103.4 &

Hands-on museum grows up on the river
By GLORIA KATZ
The Discovery Center is maturing. Even the name
has become more sophisticated: The Museum of
Science and Discovery.
With the recent groundbreaking, plans for the new
85,000-square-foot museum, 401 SW 2nd St., located
in the arts and science district, became public at last.
The $29 million museum includes the Blockbuster
300-seat IMAX theater, with a five-story high screen,
similar to the one at the Kennedy Space Center. It
offers the feeling of actually experiencing whatever
presentation is on that screen. The museum can also
boast of several premiere exhibits unlikely to be seen
anywhere else in the U.S.
"We are one of two museums that pioneered the
hands-on concept," said Sherwood Wilkes, curator of
natural sciences for the museum.
"The new museum will be totally unique. No one
has ever done anything like this before in such an
encompassing way," he said, referring to the Florida
eco-system exhibit. The space exhibit, health exhibit
and aquarium also are exciting and unique concepts, he
Aside from 220 hands-on exhibit modules,
classroom and lab areas, a cafe, museum store and
space for national touring exhibits complete the
Across the street, is an Esplanade Science Park
overlooking the New River. Here, in an combined
effort between the City of Fort Lauderdale and the
Discovery Center, navigational instruments, whisper
dishes, a telescope area under the gazebo and a science
circle for distance and measurements offer hands-on
experience. A weather station stands close to the water
overlooking the future site of city docks. The park will
open to the public by April.
Facing the park is the two-story museum facility
which will open in the fall of 1992. It will offer a mind
boggling array of science exhibits with the mission to
teach and generate new excitement for learning in an
atmosphere of creativity.

"It will cover all aspects of the Florida
environment," Wilkes said. And it will show how
plants, water and animals co-exist in this environment.
Wilkes designed the ecology exhibit over five years
Visitors will be able to walk through a coral reef
grotto, stopping to admire the 2,000-3,000 gallon
aquariums with sharks, rays and other reef dwellers.
There will be a sting ray touch tank and the largest live
Caribbean coral tank in the world, says Wilkes.
A 20-by-10-foot touch tank with starfish and sea
urchins and specimen tanks with other sea creatures
and an octopus should captivate visitors.
A live mangrove swamp with a terrarium leads one
to the Everglades habitat. Here alligators and fresh
water turtles, fish, and snakes will greet eager visitors.
An aviary will hold mockingbirds, cardinals and
taxidermy exhibits of rare wading birds and animals.
There will be swamps and a Pond Apple Slough to
walk through, tree islands and the popular bee hive
which will be adjacent to the aviary.
Walk through a sink hole and observe its geology
and environment for nocturnal animals such as bats.
See butterfly gardens and a barrier island holding live
sea turtles, hatchlings, yearlings and two-year olds.
The exhibit's second level introduces a walk

Seven other exhibits including the MAX theater,
plus the 3,000-square-foot traveling exhibit area
occupy the rest of the museum. A health exhibit
provides experiments to help learn how the human
body works. Information on good health, the effects
of drugs, diet and exercise will be available.
Amazing technology allows visitors to experience
an electronics area sponsored by Florida Power and
Light, and a robotics area with a large industrial robot.
The nature of sound will be explored in Voices of
the Universe, sponsored by Sound Advice. See how a
synthesizer works, or see the workings of
microphones and speakers.
Space Base lets astronauts experience the
sensations of blast-off, flight and re-entry. The flight
in space also lets visitors experience weightlessness.

spectrum. KidScience introduces children to science
through bubblemaking, a hatchery for baby chicks and
a music area where children can perform with a band.
How will the dynamic Eco-systrem exhibit affect
the plans for a future aquarium in downtown Fort
"Our project is happening now," said Kim Maher,
executive director of the Discovery Center. "Ours is a
comprehensive eco-system with a large number of
aquariums." In total, there will be 23 aquariums and
Maher does not rule out the possibility of the two
museums working together, however. "There could be
a future extension of what the Museum of Science and
Discovery already has," she said. "I'm a believer in
Meanwhile, the Discovery Center campaign has
already raised $25.7 million. The largest source of
funding is $11 million provided by the Florida
Department of Education/School Board of Broward
County PECO grant. The City of Fort Lauderdale's
General Obligation Bond money provided $8 million
more. Corporate and private donations make up $6.7
million. Only $3.3 million more is needed.
With the recent groundbreaking, the reality of the
new museum becomes the public's discovery.
