Boat fee repeal
A recent repeal of the federal boat user
fee is less than meets the eye...
The old boatyard at Bahia Mar Harry McClennan's story
By SUSAN B. PETERSON and
Special to the Waterfront News
From 1947 to 1949,: Harry McLennan and his
partners ran a boatiard at the vacated Coast Guard
basein Fort Lauderdale a historic site where the third
Fort Lauderdale was built in 1839 during the Second
Seminole War and the House of Refuge for
shipwrecked sailors was built in 1875. The Coast
Guard took over the House of Refuge during World
War I to use for shore patrols, and during Prohibition ,
from 1919 to 1933, the base expanded to handle
cruisers and seaplanes used to chase rumrunners.
In 1927, a murderous smuggler, James Alderman,
killed two Coast Guard officers and a Secret Service
agent while being apprehended with a load of liquor
from the Bahamas. It was suspected that he had stolen
the load and murdered thc rumrunners who were
carrying it the day before he was caught.
Alderman was tried, convicted, and hung as a
pirate in the Coast Guard base seaplane hangar, which
was later part of Harry McLcnnan's Beach Boat Basin.
In a February, 1991 interview aboard his houseboat,
McLennan told of his return to Fort Lauderdale in
1946, after serving as mate and master aboard ships of
the British Athel fleet and seeing action in Dunkirk,
Normandy and the Pacific Theater.
Shipping molasses from Cuba on the Athel
"I came here originally in 1941. It's a complicated
story. The Athel Line, in peacetime, was a molasses
company. They had a contract with Cuba to take all the
molasses out of Cuba, and Cuba had two crops of
molasses a year two sugar crops. War broke out and
the Athel Line could not send ships out here to do this,
so they made arrangements with the United States
government and they built the biggest tank farm in the
world, at that time, down in Port Everglades, and they
would send a ship to Cuba and go back and forth aind
fill this lot up.
"It was all for industrial alcohol, nitroglycerine, all
kinds of explosives. It was never used for pancakes.
It came in under bond, and ships would come in and
take it out [to England] when they could. At the time,
the United States was not in the \'.ar. This place was
neutral, so that we were not a warship, but we had
guns on us anyway. The one that I was on was the
Athel Viking. At that time there was only one dock at
Port Everglades, just one pier with a corrugated iron
shed. And we used to come in there.
"In the meantime, the HMS Orion battle cruiser
was sitting out there had caught a German freighter,
the Arauca, coming out of the Panama Canal and
pursued it all the way up.
"The Germans stayed inside the territorial limits of
the United States and the ship couldn't touch it, so they
ran all the way up here. And when we got here they
had not been in here long, so we lay on the end of the
dock and the German ship lay around the other side
with a big swastika on it, and we had the British flag
"There was a bar down in the middle of Port
Everglades, called the Anchor Inn, and the German
In 1959, ten exhibitors gathered together at War
Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale to display
their entire line of boats and marine related products to
the South Florida boating public. As is the case with
many major events, little did these ten exhibitors know
that they were making boat show history establishing
a tradition which now spans over 30 years and is
known as the Fort Lauderdale International Boat show.
October 31 through November 4 the 32nd edition of
the boat show goes to press.
Over the years many significant changes have
taken place to shape what is today the world's largest
in-water boat show. Early on, the show made stops at
Pier 66, Port Everglades, The New River, Dania Jai
Alai and the Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center.
This year the show moves its exhibits into the new
Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention
Center. The in-water aspect of the Lauderdale boat
show will remain at Bahia Mar.
The boat show will take up the entire exhibit area
available, and will have a complete display of marine
crew used to go up there at night and the British crw
used to go up there. There were a lot of fistfights."
After the war
"In 1946 I was the foreman at New River Boat &
Engine Works, at the fork of the New River, and these
two characters [Frank Barron and the late Jimmie
Harrison] showed up one day and said something
about opening a propeller shop. Well, inasmuch as
propellers were few and far between, they got a little
end of the machine shop there, and they had this one
set of pitch blocks and a couple of hammers. So'I gave
them a job scrubbing bottoms in the yard until
somebody had a propeller to repair. They got a
concession to do their propellers."
Beach boat basin 1947-1949
"After the New River Boat & Engine Works thing,
there were two fellows had gotten a lease on the old
Coast Guard base that the city had just'bought [in 1947
for $600,000] and the city didn't know what tO do

products and accessories as well as a variety of boats
of different types and sizes. According to Yachting
Promotions President Kaye Pearson, "The state-of-the-
art convention facility will provide the show with
approximately 15 percent additional exhibit space with
a beautiful, air-conditioned facility."
The $50-million-dollar facility is located at 1950
Eisenhower Boulevard in Port Everglades, just south
of the 17th Street Causeway.
Admission to the show is $8.00 for adults; $2.00
for children (6-12) and under 6 free. There is also a
special 2-day pass available for $14.00. It's
impossible to see everything in one day, so the 2-day
pass is the perfect way to take your time and enjoy the
show for a bargain price.
Parking is available at Port Everglades, with a free
shuttle service running to and from, throughout the
show hours. Parking is also available on the weekend
only at the downtown parking garage located at SE 1st
Avenue and SE 1st Street and is $2.00 on Saturday
and free on Sunday.

Dock rental hearings have been set by the
Fort Lauderdale City Commission for 6p.m. on
December 10 at City Hall. In October, the
commissioners voted to accept the Waterways Master
Plan drafted over a two year period by a panel made up
of members of the city's Marine, Zoning and Parks
Advisory Boards. However, the commission voted to
table any city ordinance changes recommended in the
report till after the public hearing.
Debate is expected to center around whether or not
to vigorously enforce a ban on private dock rentals in
waterfront neighborhoods. The master plan suggests a
new law allowing only overnight moorings behind
single family homes and only if they secure a city
permit to do so. The city currently has a dock rental
ban, but it is difficult to enforce and widely ignored.

Prince Henry Award for excellence in the teaching of
celestial navigation. The award was established by
the Portugese government. Prince Henry the Navigator
of Portugal is credited with giving great impetus to
maritime exploration during the 1400's. The award is
given annual to one of 17 units of the U.S. Power
Squadron extending from Vero Beach to Key West.
Fort Lauderdale's next public course in boating
begins Wednesday, November 6, 1991. Classes will
be held at the squad's building 915 SW 26 Street,
for seven weeks. Instruction is free, however there is a

Boaters urged to
lobby user fee repeal
To the Editor:
I am happy to report to you that after holding the
boat "user fee" tax repeal legislation hostage for the
past three months, the House Ways and Means
Committee has finally released a bill. While their
"repeal" bill is extremely tentative and would only
exempt a fraction of the boaters and anglers required to
pay in the coming years, it is, nonetheless, a step
forward in the sense that we can now begin pushing an
actual repeal bill through the full House and Senate.
However, with only five to six weeks left in this
Congressional session, I am concerned that unless we
can focus our many voices, our year-long effort may
get bogged down in the rush to adjourn.
To this end, we need your support and the active
involvement of your staff and readers.
During three days in mid-November, the 18th,
19th and 20th, we are going to be asking our 400,000
members to pick up the phone and put in a call to the
White House, the Senate Majority Leader, the Speaker
of the House and the Associate Director of OMB
responsible for the boat "user fee" tax. The message
we are asking our members to relay is simple: "Help
Repeal the Boat User Fee Tax."
We are convinced that one, big, concentrated push
from the grassroots like this a national "Appeal for
Repeal Days" will help overcome any final
congressional roadblocks and will send the President a
message that if the repeal bill reaches his desk, the
nation's boaters and anglers want him to sign it into
I honestly believe we have a good shot at a full
repeal of this $718 million burden on the nation's
boaters and anglers. I am equally convinced that if we
don't act soon, the repeal effort could slip through our
fingers and this tax will become permanent.
Please give the following information as wide a
dissemination as possible and ask every boater and
angler you know to pick up the phone on November
18, 19 and 20 and call:
The White House:
House Speaker Thomas Foley:
Senate Majority Leader George Mitchell:
OMB Associate Director Janet Hale:
As always, please do not hesitate to call me.

Live-aboard boater speaks out
To the Editor:
As a live-aboard boater and resident of Ft.
Lauderdale for fifteen years, I would like to address
some of the complaints lodged against live-aboard
boaters and to straighten out some serious
misconceptions many local homeowners have about
My wife and I belong (as do most of the live-
aboard sailors on the Las Olas Isles) to the Seven Seas
Cruising Association, an organization whose motto is
"Leave a clean wake." We do.
The homeowners' contention that live-aboard
boaters dump garbage and oil into the waterways is
ludicrous. Surveys done on live-aboard boaters have
shown that most of us are of professional background,
often retired, with a higher than average educational
background. We did not move from land to sea in
order to suddenly metamorphose into garbage- and oil-
Live-aboard boaters, due to their proximity to the
water, are unusually concerned with the preservation
of the environment. Our lifestyle is infinitely more
sound environmentally than our landlocked
counterparts. For example, the electric bill on our
thirty-eight foot sailboat averages ten dollars in the
winter, and twenty-five in the summer. We fill our
eighty gallon water tanks every two weeks, our
seventy-five fuel tank once a year. For you
homeowners reading this, how do these figures
compare with your monthly totals? Live-aboard boaters
are attuned to conserving everything because when out
sailing, we learn to be self-contained.The promiscuous
consumption of many of the local homeowners is an
environmental disaster and alien to our lifestyle. We
shower ashore and also use the toilet facilities ashore.
Boater upset with favorite
watering hole's dockage fee
To the Editor:
"I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it
Last month one of my old favorite watering holes
just dreamed up another way to tap into my apparently
bulging wallet.[This marina-restaurant] has initiated a
$30.00 boarding fee if you want to use their dock to
pick up or unload passengers. You won't see any
signs indicating this new policy as they would rather
wait until you're at the dock to hit you up for the cash.
I've spent a considerable amount of money there over
the years on food and fuel, but I refuse to support this
The weekend prior to this two cases of beer cost
me over $36.00 there, but at least I expected to pay a
little more there than at a supermarket. But where in
the world didthey come up with $30.00? Okay, maybe
$3.00 to $5.00 a head to use such a wonderful dock -
I say to hell with them and hope you all agree. I
wonder if a water taxi has to pay that much every time
they pull up to their stupid dock.
And since I've got my oars in an uproar I'd like to
know where our legislators (leeches) get off on
sucking more cash out of my supposedly fat wallet
with this new Omnibus "fee." I say NO! And again I
hope you all agree. I'm going to make it as hard as
possible for them to get that money out of me. I truly
hate to see our Coast Guard burdened down with
enforcing this tax oopss, I meant to say fee) but until
I'm ticketed and the judge says pay or else I lose my
boat, I'm going to pretend I never heard anything

Perhaps our local homeowners should visit the Isles to
see that many of the docks have on-shore toilet
facilities. The "human waste" these homeowners have
allegedly seen is actually matted vegetable matter;
marine heads (when they are used) completely grind
up the waste matter.
The oil slicks on the water don't come from live-
aboard boaters; almost all of us have oil drip pans.
Rather, oil on the water is caused by untended, non-
live-aboard boats whose bilge pumps automatically
pump over whatever is in the bilge. Large fuel spills
from non-live-aboard powerboats also add to the
A comment about the rat problem would be
comical if it weren't so disgusting. I know of no live-
aboard boats that have ever had a rat problem. Rats arc
a land problem. The vast majority of our boats are
immaculate. We confronted a local pest control
company and they denied ever having made a
statement about the "dirt" on boats attracting rats. It is
well they did deny such a preposterous statement. Rats
burrow into the holes in and around houses. They are
not a problem on boats; we have never even had to take
The live-aboard boaters on the Las Olas Isles
remain responsible members of the community who
are concerned with the ignorance manifested by many
of our land-based neighbors. Many live-aboards own
their $50,000 to $500,000 boats outright and pump
millions of dollars into the local economy. We are not
raggedy "boat bums" living from paycheck to
paycheck; we simply choose an alternative and
(apparently) somewhat threatening lifestyle. If all of
the live-aboard boaters moved out of the Isles area the
water quality would not improve (in fact, it has been
tested and found to be above regulatory standards).
The removal of all of the live-aboard sailboats from the
Las Olas Isles area would deal a severe aesthetic blow
to the area; empty docks are not particularly attractive.
We enjoy living in Fort Lauderdale and, because we
are not second class citizens, cannot tolerate ignorant,
patronizing comments from homeowners.

If you have a legal problem about your boat or a
manufacturer's problem I really would see a lawyer or
boat recall list at a good marine store. Some boating
magazines have lists of recalls and boats that are not
I have a 42-foot cabin cruiser that runs hot at high
speed and cools down when I slow down at idle. She
runs at about 180-185 degrees. It cools down as I
accelerate and then gets real hot one engine more
than the other. I've done the heat exchanger and
impellors and I have cleaned the heat risers as you
wrote in one of your columns. Still hot.
Belts and pumps have to be tight and clean. to
operate efficiently. But, I really think you should
check your thermostats. Your description of your
problem says you have obstructed water flow.
Remove your H.T. thermostats and run engines
without them and check for overheating. Replace with
a lower temperature unit. Many thermostats hang up or
Something funny happened to my boat yesterday.
I advanced the throttle and the boat just idled along,
went into reverse and just idled. I idled my way home
a little faster, a little slower and finally got back.
After I tied up, I checked my controls and
carburetor and all was connected. I have a new filter
and plenty of fuel. All looks good.
Have someone work the controls as you watch
your cable ends. If they do not move, you can have a
loose cable housing which slides back and forth while
the cable does not move. A broken cable will do the
same thing. You may also have a plugged or kinked
Sgas line. But, I would check the cable linkage first.
I'm new down here and I would like to buy a boat.
But after much thinking about expenses, taxes, repairs
and licensing, should I rent or lease or just go out on
charters or fishing groups? I would like your thoughts
I'm really the wrong one to ask. I've had a boat
since I was twelve years old. I've had a car since I had
a license. I owned them myself. People lease cars and
rent boats but there are pros and cons. Docking the
boat is important. Do you live on waterfront or would
you have to dock at a marina? Are you mechanical or
not? Some repairs or adjustments you could do.
Do you fish or do you like to cruise and sleep out
or picnic on your boat? There are many clubs that rent-
boats and many yacht clubs that will invite you to join
them if you have a boat. You will meet people that
have the same interests that you may have which you
won't find at rental offices. Being a boater is a whole
new way of life. Renting is a ticket to boating
enjoyment. Buying is living it and enjoying it no
matter what problems may crop up now and then.
I have a small 19-foot runabout. I use it weekly
and putter around with it. I wash it and wax it and I
would like to change the oil and filters on this boat, put
water in the batteries and, install plugs but I'm stymied.
The back of the transom is over most of the motor. I
can't get at the batteries or the oil filter. The oil plug is
nowhere to be found. The rear plugs are non-
rechargeable, the belts and other motor components are
impossible to change.
What to do?
Now you can see why mechanics charge the way
they do. You're absolutely right. Why do manufacturers
build boats around the engines? You must slide
batteries out to add water or get waterless batterics.Oil
.must be sucked out instead of drained. Hoses and parts
must be taken off before filters can be reached.
It seems the newer the boat the harder it gets to
service it. For plug removal you must have special
tools and flex handles to go around and under. All I
can say to you is: get a good mechanic and watch him
or her do it. Then. you decide about the next service.
My engine runs swell at high or medium speed,
but sort of slaps or runs rough at idle. Plug, wire, and
points are new and carburetors are overhauled, yet
they still pop once in a while.
What can I do?
Your trouble is clued by the pop in your
carburetor. You have either a burnt or hung intake
valve that causes that miss or pop at low speeds. At
high speeds you will not notice it. Do a compression
test to locate the cylinder at fault and pull valve cover
to check. Most likely you could stand a valve job if
you have not done one for years.

Special to the Waterfront News
On September 21, the 5th Annual Florida Coastal
Cleanup took place. Along Broward County's beaches,
environmentally concerned volunteers scoured the
beaches and removed coastal debris. Each piece of
trash that was collected was recorded for inclusion into
a national report. This report provides valuable data for
policymakers seeking to solve this ecological problem.

Proposed DNR rule would limit beach renourishment
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
Some coastal cities are displeased with a proposed
state agency rule which would severely restrict beach
renourishment projects during turtle nesting season.
Cities such as Delray Beach, which periodically do
renourishment projects, would be required to perform
such projects during the winter months. This would
add an additional 30 percent or more to the cost of the
The proposed Department of Natural Resources
(DNR) rule would disallow renourishment projects
from March 1.to October 31 along Florida's east coast
and from May 1 to October 31 on the western side of
David Arnold, who is a member of DNR's
division of marine resources, stated, "We are not
anticipating that the passage of this rule will prohibit
beach restoration projects during nesting season;
however, they (cities) will have to meet certain criteria
to get the permit for such projects."
John Walker, project manager with the City of
Delray Beach, says the proposed rule is too restrictive.
He stated, "In the current form, the hope of
getting an exemption in order to conduct such a project
rests on the mercy of the department."
The City of Delray Beach recently acquired
funding approval for a $5.5 million beach
renourishment project, which would be scheduled to
begin in May or June of next year, during the turtle
Delray city officials are very concerned that they
won't be able to obtain a permit from DNR to do the
Walker added that there should be no restrictions
on renourishment projects, but that there should be a
plan to protect turtle nestings while such projects are in
The City of Delray has statistics compiled over the
past seven years which show that the percentage of
turtle nests successfully relocated and the
corresponding hatching rate is similar to that of nests
which were not relocated. Thus, the city claims that
relocation of nests does not significantly affect turtle
The controversy partially stems from a U.S. Fish
and Wildlife biological opinion which says that
relocating nests changes the gender of the eggs to a
male orientation, thus ultimately reducing the number
of females which hatch and reducing the turtle
The Florida legislature recently passed the "Marine
Turtle Protection Act," which empowers DNR to
execute Federal guidelines for turtle protection. The
law enables DNR to refuse to permit projects which it
deems detrimental to sea turtle nesting.
However, part of the act also states: "The
department shall give special consideration to beach
preservation and beach nourishment projects that
restore habitat of endangered marine turtle species.
Nest relocation shall be considered for all such projects
in urbanized areas."
Stan Tate, president of the Florida Shore and
Beach Preservation Association is opposed to limiting
beach renourishment projects.
Tate declared, "Beach renourishment has done
more than regulation to increase turtle nesting. Over the
10-15 years, we've restored 100 miles of beach,
which has increased the nesting habitat for turtles by
David Schmidt, chief of Coastal Section and
Planning with the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers,
stated, "The (DNR) ban on dredging is not necessary;
it will add a considerable amount of time and cost to
projects like the City of Delray's."
Other state officials and environmentalists are wary

of dredging during nesting season, because material
that is placed on the beach during that time is shifting

A workshop on the proposed rule was held last
month in Palm Beach County, and others are
scheduled for different areas in the state in November.

Developers will be held more accountable for

South Florida Water District managers.
Government agencies have been allowing

City of Miami settles marina legal woes
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
The City of Miami Beach has settled long-standing
legal differences with respect to the marina at Fifth
Street on Biscayne Bay. It should mean the marina will
be completed, to the delight of residents and cruising
boat owners. This is one of the marinas most
convenient to the sea.
City officials have agreed to pay $5-million in
settlement of a lawsuit that has been in litigation six
years, once threatened to bankrupt the city and only
two months ago spawned a counter-suit.
The agreement terminates relations between the city
and developer Camer-Mason Associates, hired in 1983
to build the marina. A new relationship is established
with Heller Financial of Chicago, original finance of
the marina, and Chicago's Chrisken Group, already
involved in South Beach, will supervise construction
and oversee the marina's completion.
In return for $2.1 million cash Camer-Mason will
drop all claims. The city will invest up to $2.5 million
in new construction, and Heller Financial will
complete construction of the main building and docks,
operate the facility and hold the marina lease.
The project will be completed within two years of
revert to the city at no cost.
Concessions from the city include a rent reduction
from $400,000 annually to $200,000 on completion,
to $320,000 in seven years. Heller has a 30-year lease
with a 30-year option calling for payment of up to 10
percent of the marina's gross receipts.
It's back to square one for the City of Miami in the
quest to have Dinner Key Marina revitalizedc.
Questions include: How soon can the existing operator
be ousted? How soon can a new request for proposals
be written and responded to by bidders? How soon
can work begin, and more importantly, be completed
for the benefit of boaters and the city?
The existing plan, calling for new slips, a
restaurant and other improvements on 6.4 acres behind
City Hall in Coconut Grove, is in bankrupcty court.
No work has been started at the site, and a projected
$1,000 a day in rental income for the city never has
been realized. No payment has been made on a rent of
$33,750 a month to the city, and when the city sued
for eviction, Sherman Whitmore, promoter, developer
and the supposed financial man behind the developing
Dinner Key Marina group, filed for bankruptcy.
Dinner Key Marina group continues to collect rents
paid by boaters for slips.
The city will ask the court to dismiss the
bankruptcy suit and give the marina back to the city to
run. City Manager Cesar Odio agrees Whitmore could
contest the issue and tie up the city effort's for months.
Faison Associates, a North Carolina group,
declined to rescue the Dinner Key Marina partners.
The Faison plan would have paid some back rent,
satisfied some creditors, and completed construction.
In return there was a request for a $5,000 cap on rent,
an escape clause should permission for an expanded
marina be denied, and relief from responsibility for
removing old fuel tanks.
In addition, the city was concerned about

Meanwhile, the city has learned Faison plans to

Miami also came out ahead in a game of hardball
with developer Manny Medina in the operation of
Monte Trainer's Bayshore Restaurant, and the adjacent
marina and shops. Controversy erupted when Medina
transferred management of the business through a
sublease covering 44 years. That move would have
cost the city some $30 million in anticipated rent.
In retaliation the City of Miami closed an entrance
to parking lots on which the Medina enterprise
depended. City officials also announced plans to convert
the entire lot into a park making the position of the
Medina interests untenable. In addition there was the
possible effect of adverse public opinion, and costs of

Mooring buoys boost diving
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News columnist
By placing mooring buoys along some of Broward
County's reef system, Ocean Watch Foundation
(OWF) has been able to help SCUBA divers find the
reefs, and begin to stop the needless damage done to
those reef colonies when anchors-are dropped on them.
In just a few years, OWF, a private organization
formed by concerned divers and environmentalists, is
alive, well, and striving to do even more for the reef
OWF official Larry Rubin advises they are
working to get more permits allowing them to place
mooring buoys on the reefs, and hopefully someday be
able to mark off a part of the reef system in Broward
as a marine sanctuary.
He states OWF has been able to place twenty
buoys south of Port Everglades along the well-used
Cuda Reef. Another thirty mooring buoys are strung
along the eastern edge of the first reef in Pompano.
Hopefully, Rubin says, the next mooring buoys will
cover the central reefs of Broward.
Initial studies are showing the buoys are a success
- success meaning that now boaters don't have to drop
their anchors on the reef, they just tie up on the buoys
and jump in; guaranteed reef with no time arid gas
spent trying to find it.
Vice president of OWF, D.J. Meeks, says that in
obtaining permits to place'the mooring buoys on the
reefs, the-Florida Department of Natural Resources
mandates that OWF has to undertake periodic studies
of the reef.
The studies, Meeks says, are done to show what
the effects of the mooring system are. In other words:
is having the buoys a negative or a positive for the
To help in the reef studies OWF has enlisted the
aid of a graduate student from Nova University, John
Hocevar. Hocevar, 23, is working for his Master's
degree in marine biology. By helping OWF in the
studies, Hocevar is helping himself, using the reef
studies to do his Master's thesis. His tool of choice is
the underwater video camera. In this, he is helped by a
veteran Broward County divemaster and underwater
videographer, who has been able to construct a grid
frame that fits on the video camera. Then he
systematically videotapes the study area. Hocevar says
that new computer software allows for him to use the
underwater video and show a truer picture of the
effects of the mooring buoys as to damage and growth
to the coral.
Hocevar does the study by video taping select
reefs. Some of the reefs have the mooring buoys and
some don't. The differences between them are the
basis for comparison, and shows the effect of the
Some veteran divers question the mooring buoys s
by suggesting that putting buoys on certain reefs yes
- you do stop anchor damage, but what damage is;
done by too many divers going to the same reefs?,.
Hocevar himself feels there may be a harmful side
effect to the buoys, and for that exact reason: too many
divers crowding the same reefs. Many divers fresh
from SCUBA lessons either don't know how, or don't
want to stay off the coral. And any marine biologist or
caring diver can tell you what happens when hands and
fins scrape, crush or disturb the coral polyps.
But Hocevar feels that once the buoys are strung
along the whole reef system in Broward, the benefits
will outweigh the negatives. Thus, the studies continue
more studies, hopefully more buoys.
Support for the mooring buoys also comes from
many of Broward's dive boat captains, who are
enthusiastic about the mooring buoys. "They have
unquestionably cut down the damage done to the reefs
by boaters," states one captain, who goes on to say
another benefit he receives from the mooring buoys is
time. "I save about twenty minutes per trip. It takes
time to line up your location and drop anchor. Then it-
takes more time to recover the anchor. Sliding up to a
mooring buoy is a bonus for all of us," he added.
He also feels that it's nice to be able to take your
students to a certain reef where you can describe in
detail what they will see. This dive boat captain was
instrumental in recently moving a 300-year-old anchor
and placing it on Cuda Reef. As a long-time Florida
resident, he is proud of Florida's history, and in this
case, the mooring buoys allow him to share that
history with his divers.
He believes the benefits far outweigh any negative
effects, and mentioned a recent trip to the islands.
Most of the reef stops the charter boat made were at
mooring buoys. There were, however, a couple of
reefs where the captain dropped anchor because there
wasn't a mooring buoy. After leaving the boat and
diving to the reef, he felt sickened by the damage he
sawto the coral by the boat's anchor chains. He is also
a dive instructor who is concerned about the reefs and
their future along the southeast coast of Florida.

Safety November 1991 Waterfront News 13
New training encourages fairness for on-water safety enforcement
By GREG PROTEAU
Special to the Waterfront News
CHICAGO Coalition of public and private
boating safety advocates has produced new training
materials to be used by marine patrol officials to
standardize on-water enforcement efforts nationwide.
Centering on alcohol and substance abuse detection
and arrest procedures, instructional materials including
a training video will be distributed to boating safety
officials and educators beginning this fall.
Boating enforcement officials discovered a need
for instructional materials to provide standardization
and credibility for the effective management of boating-
while-intoxicated (BWI) practices and procedures. The
training video meets the need for consistent and
uniform procedures throughout the U.S. regarding
BWI detection and arrest "For the vast majority of law-
abiding boat operators, effective training of marine
patrol personnel will cut down unnecessary stops,"'
suggests NMMA president Jeff Napier. "For law
breakers, uniform procedures will likely result in more
prosecutions. Training should help achieve both.of
these results, and this is why we supported
development of the new program.
"The video will serve a major role in the overall
training course for marine law enforcement officers
nationwide, suitable as-a training aid for all federal,
state and local marine agencies. Components include:
physiological effects of alcohol, detention procedures,
detention, evidence collection and preservation, field
sobriety testing, arrest procedures, and safety of
suspect, passengers and officer. The video was
produced by Florida-based Marketing Resources
Funding for the program is part of an ongoing
NMMA safety campaign, launched in 1987, to rid the
nation's waterways of alcohol and drug abusers who
are responsible for 60 percent of boating accidents,
according to Coast Guard estimates. Other elements of
the campaign include distribution of on-water
"designated driver" public service announcements and
publicity, working with state officials to toughen and
make uniform BUI laws, subsidizing the costs of safe
boating literature and basic boating home-study
courses disseminated by new boat builders, and liaison
with others in the public and private sector to promote
common boating safety goals.

FCC radio 'u
By ELAINE DICKINSON
Special to the Waecrfronl News
ser fee' sunk in
Boat owners who were facing a new $50 "user
fee" on VHF radios, on top of a $35 fee instituted last
year, can breathe a little easier. A new Federal
Communications Commission fee proposal was
successfully scuttled by Senator Ernest "Fritz"
Hollings (D-S.C.) after it had been routinely approved
by the full House of Representatives.
Hollings was able to use his dual position as
Chairman of the Senate Commerce Committee and
Chairman of a Senate Appropriations panel that
oversees the FCC to see that yet another tax burden on
boat owners was sunk. IHollings said the FCC "user
fee" was unnecessary, a burden on consumers and
nothing but another tax disguised as a fee.
The proposed FCC fees would have required
165,000 boat owners to pay $8.2 million and 44,000
private aircraft pilots to pay $2.2 million for such
traditional FCC functions as rulcmaking,
policymaking, enforcement and international functions.
The Administration-proposed plan sought to collect
$65 million from a wide variety of consumers as well
as the communications industry. The plan had won the
backing of the House Energy and Commerce
Committee and was passed by the House on Sept. 24.
In a House-Senate conference committee, Hollings
prevailed and the fees were dropped.
Hollings has termed the boat "user fee" tax a
shenanigann." According to Hollings, "These boater
'fees' are taxes, pure and simple. It is one more
example of the deceit and subterfuge we resort to
because we are unwilling to pursue honest solutions to
our federal budget crisis."

Marine Patrol drops ethnic New radar measures ocean currents
question from citations
MIAMI (AP) -The Florida Marine Patrol, under
pressure from Attorney General Bob Butterworth, has
decided to abandon the practice of asking accused
offenders if they are Hispanic.
The agency is preparing a new citation that won't
ask the question.
"It's a victory for the Hispanic community," said
state Sen. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, R-Miami, who
complained the Marine Patrol's tickets discriminated
"An unacceptable vestige of the past hasb been
eliminated," Diaz-Balart said.
On the citation issued to boaters and fishermen,
Marine Patrol officers ask whether accused offenders
are of "Hispanic origin" and check off a "yes" boxor
"no" box. The citation does not ask about other ethnic
Felix Hemandez, head of a group of Miami sport
fishermen, called a press conference to call the tickets
"Whether one is Hispanic, black or Chinese is not
important. The offense committed is what matters," he
The Marine Patrol said it was simply collecting
information sought by the Florida Department of Law
"We never asked that question for discriminatory
reasons," said Maj. Kent Thompson, Marine Patrol
spokesman. "We included it because FDLE wanted

Special to the Waterfront News
SA new system that uses Doppler radar to measure
and track surface ocean currents in coastal areas is
being used for the first time in the U.S. by scientists at
the University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine
and Atmospheric Science. The system, called Ocean
Surface Current Radar (OSCR), gives a more detailed
picture of surface current speed and direction than any
"Satellites can give you images of surface
temperatures and surface roughness from which you
can estimate currents and their boundaries, but they
cannot measure current speed directly," according to
senior research associate Duncan Ross, a member of
the OSCR evaluation team. "Moored buoys provide
good measurements of sub-surface currents but not of
surface currents. Drifting buoys are influenced by
winds as well as currents and cannot give information
about what's happening over a wide area. OSCR
bridges the gap between satellites and buoys."
During the U.S. pilot study, OSCR will be set up
at two coastal sites, Cape Hatteras, North Carolina and
Miami, during September and October.
"We're looking at OSCR from two perspectives:
one as a research tool and the other asan applications
tool," says Professor Lynn Shay, UM professor of
meteorology and physical oceanography. "As an
applications tool, OSCR is extremely useful for
monitoring surface currents in coastal areas. It can
show in real-time how pollutants from a sewage
outfall, for example, are affected by tides and currents.
"From a research standpoint, OSCR will help us

understand the interaction between air and ocean. By
combining satellite data on winds and temperature with
OSCR information on surface currents, we will be able
to make better guesses about how these two fluids are
coupled," Shay says.
OSCR is made up of two radar
transmitters/receivers located several kilometers apart.
From their different vantage points, the two
transmitters send out radio waves across the same area
of oceah surface. The radio waves are reflected back
from the moving ocean waves to the receivers. OSCR
uses the data from the two sites to produce a map of
current speed and direction.
The OSCR system has two resolutions. The
medium resolution covers an area of 20x40 kilometers
and produces a grid showing current speed and
direction at points about one kilometer apart. At high
resolution, OSCR shows current measurements at
points 250 meters apart over a surface area of about

Waterfront restaurant offers fun atmosphere, good food
By JENNIFER HEIT'
waterfront News writer
Tucked along the Intracoastal between the more
notable waterfront haunts, Dockside Sea Food
Restaurant could be easily overlooked. But that
The little restaurant, located across from
Hollywood Beach, offers all the ambience of a
waterfront location including a school of fish that
make an instant appearance when there's food to be
had. Patrons who choose a dockside table can get a
good view of the feeding frenzy.
Casual dress is the norm, with most people
showing up in shorts or office attire. During the
season, tourists probably fill the place, but on our
recent visit, there appeared to be a local crowd.
Dockside's decor is simple. A fresh carnation in a
wine bottle filled with water sits on every table. The
rustic look requires little effort thanks to the classic
Intracoastal view. Dining at sunset makes it all the
The menu, which is available in French, lists
basic, no frills entrees. There's a variety of appetizers,
salads, soups, side orders and a raw bar featuring
clams and oysters.
Those coming by boat can tie up at the restaurant's
150' dock. At low tide, the draft is about four feet
deep. In fact, it might be easier to dock a boat than
park a car, since Dockside has only about six parking
Entrees are seafood favorites: stone crabs when in
season, lobster tails, a fish of the day and surf and
turf, all at market price.
Other possibilities include fried clams, broiled
scallops, shrimp scampi and a seafood dinner for two,
priced from $8.95 to $26.95, with most in the $10

Call 524-9450 to place your
baked potato or French fries, cole slaw or corn and an
onion roll. The baked potato was not crusty the way I
prefer. Instead, it had the texture of a boiled potato.
But the shrimp, fried with grated coconut, were
more than adequate in size. They came served with a
small bowl of sweet and sour sauce for dipping.
The generous portion of blackened dolphin was
moist and appropriately spiced. However the price tag
seemed a bit steep.
Dessert was a piece of rich vanilla cheese cake ($3)
topped with fresh strawberries.

Marine algae blooms examined from above
By ROSEMARIE SULLIVANT
Special to the Waterfront News
Can something be too small and, at the same time,
too big to see? Perhaps. Only recently have scientists
been able to identify the gigantic blooms of a marine
algae, named coccolithophores, that can cover millions
of kilometers of the ocean's surface. Because these
algae take carbon dissolved in surface water and send
it as sediment to the ocean floor and as carbon dioxide
into the atmosphere, the discovery of such large
blooms means that they may have a much bigger
impact on the global carbon budget and the
geochemistry of the oceans than had been thought.
The single-celled coccolithophores are visible only
through a microscope.When they bloom, usually at the

beginning of the summer, all that can be seen is a
change in the color of the water from blue to brilliant
turquoise caused by countless white disks of calcium
carbonate, called coccoliths, that the algae forms and
sheds. On satellite images, however, the algae blooms
appear as large areas of reflectivity. It was these
images, in fact, that provided the first clues of the
magnitude of the blooms. Even then questions arose
about how to interpret the data.
This summer a team of scientists aboard the British
research ship Charles Darwin set out to answer some

of these questions by comparing satellite images with
sea truth. Using satellite data, they tracked a bloom in
the North Atlantic south of Iceland that stretched 900
kilometers across and 500 kilometers from north to
south. "This was one of the largest blooms of
coccolithophores that has ever been studied," says
William Balch, professor of marine biology at the
University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science and one of the scientists aboard
The work done this summer is providing new
information on the extent of the algal blooms, the
amount of carbon these organisms take from the
surface waters, how much of this carbon ends up in
the atmosphere, and how they change the optical
properties of the water, i.e. how can you tell from a
satellite image whether the algae are present, how
many are there, and how quickly they are growing.
"We are now able to make some of the first
estimates of the rate at which these algae calcify,"
Balch says. "Just how important coccolithophores are
in the global carbon budget is still a big question, but
we do know that the calcium carbonate shed by
coccolithophores can end up permanently buried on the
ocean floor. Most of the carbon from other sources
gets recycled by bacteria."
"In some places, coccolithophores account for
only a small fraction of the carbon that is taken up in
the ocean. For example, in the Gulf of Maine, one to
two percent of the total carbon that sinks is calcium
carbonate. But," continues Balch, "south of Iceland,
70-80% of the carbon being buried on the ocean floor
is calcium carbonate. Many of these sediments are
simply oozes of coccoliths."

Biscayne Baynanza a [
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
Biscayne Bay comes alive each October with a
unique celebration that attracts thousands of residents,
area boaters and cruising yachtsmen.
Baynanza is a sort of "State of the Bay" report to
the homefolks and an invitation to everybody to
sample the watery wares of a recreation area ready to
be enjoyed for an hour or a lifetime- much of it free.
On shore or on the water, with a sailboard or a
world class yacht there's something for everyone in
Biscayne Bay and its surrounding waters.
Baynanza this year spanned a 17-day celebration
headlined by the Columbus Day Regatta. It attracts
some 500 yachts and as many as 1500 spectator craft
for the two-day race from Coconut Grove to Elliott
Key on Saturday with the return leg on Sunday after a
night of rafting and revelry.
It's a short, fun race that admirably demonstrates
the number of boats on Biscayne Bay at any time as
well as cruising opportunities available.
David Lewis cruises Biscayne Bay in his recently
acquired sloop Thalassa, a 35-foot Benctcau, and has
plans to extend his cruising range to the Bay's nearby
"I just bought the boat, so I'm a novice sailor, but
after my first trip to Biscayne Bay I made plans to
return for the Columbus Day Regatta and a week of
exploring," Lewis said.
Baynanza, regatta aside, provides a potpourri of
activities to be enjoyed from time to time during the
year- along with special events.
Adventurers allergic to deep water can wade the
shoreline to learn about marine life in company with a
marine biologist from the Parks and Recreation
Department. There are many free programs like this
one. Call 662-4124.
Bird watchers enjoy similarly conducted bird
walks..Carry binoculars and try to spy herons, egrets,
and other local and migratory aquatic birds.
Just offshore there are a variety of canoe trips
where a nominal fee includes all equipment and the
canoe along with a professional guide.
There are snorkeling tours for those prepared to get
wet, again with instruction and a group leader.
Glass bottom boat excursions from Biscayne
National Park provide an insight to the marine
communities within the park. A park visit is a
worthwhile adventure, for there are offshore barrier
islands to explore, like Elliott Key and nearby Boca
Chita, with its inviting light and fewer neighbors.
One can find a host of good marinas for overnight
stays. MiaMarina, Marriott, Bayside and four
Ambassadors are downtown. Others offer such names
)otpourri of activities
as: Turnberry Isle, Jockey Club, Racquet Club, Doral,
Eden Rock or Fontainbleu (Miami Beach on Indian
Creek), Miami Beach Marina (South Beach), Dinner
Key, and Crandon Park. There are also good sites to
Bay fishing is improving, and as part of Baynanza
some 1,000 redfish were released from the University
of Miami's Rosensticl School of Marine and
Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), which also has
released snook from its hatchery.
RSMAS, and the hatchery, are open to the public,
and a phone call usually brings visiting boats an
invitation to tie up at the school's dock and tour the
Virginia Key facility.
For youngsters of all ages, the Scaquarium is on
Key Biscayne and currently is preparing for a $70-
million refurbishing and expansion to make it a world
Just about every type of watercraft can be seen in
Biscayne Bay, with the concentration at Government
Cut and the Port of Miami, one of the busiest in the
country as the result of cruise ships. Cruise ship
passengers also mean that an astronomical number of
people sail on at least a portion of Biscayne Bay each
And recreational boaters regularly ply Biscayne's
waters for a meal at one of the waterfront restaurants, a
dock.that provides easy access to shopping, an easy
run to a football game at the Orange Bowl or Joe
Robbie Stadium, or any of Dade's special events and
In total, reading from north to south, Biscayne Bay
reaches from the 163rd Street Causeway south to Card
Sound Road, and sprawls across 20 square miles of
inland waters. It is traversed by the Intracoastal
Other bays have earned more publicity: San
Francisco, San Diego, and perhaps even Tampa.
None, however, is receiving more tender care with a
view toward earning an appropriate place in commerce,
tourism and recreational boating.
Vizcaya, Deering Estate, and Barnacle House are
but three homes that have been built on Biscayne's
shoreline. All are monuments and historically
Even the U.S. Air Force utilizes bay waters for
Sea Survival School training.
Biscayne Bay enjoyed pristine brilliance in its early
days, has survived pollution during its middle years,
and now is regaining a status as a national treasure.
