planned in Broward
FORT LAUDERDALE Broward County's
proposed Manatee Protection and Boating Safety Plan
will be debated this month during two public hearings.
Pamela McVety, Florida Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) director of Marine Resources, has
reviewed the Broward plan, which was two years i the
making by a task force of citizens appointed by the
County Commission. McVety has written two critiques
of the plan suggesting stricter protection measures "to
ensure year-round protection for manatees" and their
habitats in the county.
McVety wants to "selectively 'decriminalize'
certain violations related to manatee protection a
measure which [DNR believes] will promote active and
consistent enforcement," moving some violations from
felonies to misdemeanors.
McVety also believes that "a limit is needed for the
number of slips (powerboat) allowed at residential
docks, both single and multi-family." She desires an
expansion of existing marinas near the county's inlets
McVety's goal is "zero mortality" of manatee
population at the hands of Broward's boaters.
Broward maritime leaders characterized this as a naive
and totally impossible standard.
"This is a boiler plate," said Broward County
Marine Advisory Board Commitee Chairman John
Grady, who was also a member of the manatee task
force, concerning the DNR officials's review of the
plan Grady helped craft.
"Tallahassee is setting us up," said MAC member
and task force participant Robert Middlemas, who
wants to reconvene the manatee task force which was
dissolved last December. "The public hearing is not the
proper venue. Send the county commissioners to
Broward County Commissioner Gerald
Thompson, also a former task force member, hopes
for some workshop meetings to be set up by County
Chairman John Hart prior to the first hearing April 14.
At such workshops, former task force members could
join the rest of the public, and with commissioners
prepare for the hearings, Thompson said.
Hart has not acted upon Thompson's pre-hearing
workshop idea, nor has he directly responded to a
letter from MAC chairman Grady in which Grady
"urgently requested that [Hart] schedule a special joint
meeting" of the MAC and the Manatee Taskforce with
Hart agrees with Grady, though, when the MAB
chairman writes: "It is rather apparent to [the MAB]
that the well-meaning intentions and the essence of the
county's task force suggestions have been largely
ignored and little attention paid to how man and
manatee can successfully cohabitate here in Broward
Broward is one of 12 waterfront counties charged
by former Gov. Martinez with coming up with a plan
to protect manatees over two years ago. The deadline
for getting a homegrown county plan approved by the
cabinet is in June.
The Associated Press
TAMPA It is widely believed that manatees are
hit by boats because they're slow and stupid. Some
scientists are speculating, however, that the lumbering
sea cows simply can't hear oncoming boats.
If a two-year study at Lowry Park Zoo proves the
theory, it could lead to a technological solution to such
collisions the manatee's leading cause of human-
"We have manatees with 12 or 13 hits," Ed
Gerstein, director of marine mammal research at
Florida Atlantic University. "After they've been hit
one, two or three times, why don't they learn to evade
Gerstein said prevailing dogma that manatees are
slow and dim-witted is just not true. Tests have
clocked some manatees exploding through the water at
22 feet per second, and they are considered nearly as
trainable as dolphins.
"There has to be something else going on,"
Gerstein said, adding that might be an inability to hear.
To find out, Gerstein and Geoffrey Patton, senior
biologist at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota,
devised a two-phase study on a pair of manatees that
have weathered numerous boat collisions.
The first phase involves a series of hearing
experiments, and if they indicate boat noise is outside
manatee hearing range, the scientists will move to
phase two: development of an acoustic warning device
for boats that manatees can hear.
The hearing tests are similar to human hearing
tests, but manatees can't just raise a flipper when they
hear a tone. Instead, they must be trained to push a
pair of paddles. If the manatee hears a tone, he presses
one paddle; if not, he presses the other.
Once the manatees make the paddle connection, the
scientists~test their range of hearing by playing tones of
varying frequencies and volumes through an
"We get the basic science first, then we can get
creative once we have the facts," Patton said. "We
have a chance to find technological solutions to the
Solutions could include modifications to boat
motors so they would emit sounds at frequencies in
manatee range, or the simple addition of a plastic
device that would vibrate in the water at the proper

in coastal waters of the Southeast. There are now less
than 2,000, almost all in Florida.
New programs planned to lessen poisoning of manatee habitat
By SUSAN B. PETERSON
Waterfront News writer
Newborn manatees are dying off at an increasing
rate in Florida perinatal deaths (baby manatees
under 100 centimeters in length) are up from 14
counted in DNR reports from 1982, to 30 in 1988, 44
in 1990 and 53 in 1991.
Dr. Gregg Bossart, staff veterinarian at the Miami
Seaquarium, said: "If you look at the species
reproductively, it's not what we would call efficient,
one calf every three or four years. If you're losing
adults and now we're losing the younger population, it
doesn't take a rocket scientist to put two and two
together. You can't lose the young population and
expect in 10 years to maintain the present breeding
status. That's certainly not a good prognosis for the
Dr. Bossart reports that both Sea World in Orlando
and the Miami Seaquarium are treating many orphaned
manatees. "You wonder, why are we seeing so many
orphans? If you put the data together, it looks like you
see so many orphans because they're losing their
mothers, because they usually stay with their mothers
for many years. We see more traumatic injuries here.
In 1990 we spent almost $300,000 to take care of
manatees that were injured by boats."
Manatees have super immune systems
Dr. Bossart, who is also a pathologist with six
years of post-doctoral study in the field, had a slide
from a Case Western Reserve University study on
manatee immune systems, that showed a T-cell
lymphocyte suppressor cell. He said: "We're studying
what makes manatees sick, how they get sick, how to
make them better. And we're able now, thanks to a lot
of the AIDS research, to look at manatees' immune
systems. It seems they have quite exquisite immune
systems, and they are apparently able to respond to
challenges in the environment a lot better than other
marine mammals, so it's kind of brand new, what
we're looking at."
Regarding herbicide or pesticide poisoning as a
possible cause of baby manatee deaths, Dr. Bossart
said: "Well, certainly these are all theories, and if you
look at what we've done to this planet, and if you look
at some of our beginning research in what toxic
residues we call anthropogenic toxins that are put in the
environment by man specifically, it's a very new
science. But what we're finding is quite astounding.
For example, animals in the Antarctic have levels of
PCB's and breakdown products of DDT and things
like that, so it's certainly there and it's bioconcentrated.
Die-offs aren't generally caused by a single specific
cause and a single specific effect there are many
things interacting, and they have to be interacting at the
right place and the right time to create an effect, in this
case being perinatal mortality. Certainly,
anthropogenic toxins may be involved in that, but
again, it's strictly speculation right now."

Scientists express concern over rise in newborn manatee deaths
MANATEES, FROM page 2
Dr. Jesse White, retired staff veterinarian at the
Miami Seaquarium who developed the successful
captive manatee breeding program there, says: "By the
time we find out, it may be too late." Dr. White thinks
that state and federal aquatic weed control programs are
contaminating manatee habitats and their food supply.
"Something's in milk or in the mothers' systems,
whether it is herbicide or pesticides," said Dr. White,
and he is convinced that the increased death rate for
taby manatees is connected with the use of herbicides
to control aquatic weeds like hydrilla, an important
food source for manatees, and criticizes the state DNR
programs for not testing dead manatee tissue samples
for herbicides and pesticide residues since 1987.
Reducing nitrogenous waste is the most important
part of an overall solution to the pollution problem,
said Dr. White. New approaches to sanitary treatment
are needed. Dr. White said that in early March Crystal
River began a program to divert wastes to a spray
In Broward County the South Florida Water
Management District is in charge of aquatic weed
control at eight field stations in the area, and has 80-90
fulltime herbicide applicators on staff, 90 percent of
whom are licensed. Gordon Baker, a district
environmental scientist explained that until six years
ago, in the C-11, C-12, C-13 and C-14 canals, hydrilla
Memberships drive planned for
Marine Council members are meeting to develop a
program that will stimulate membership in the
prestigious group. Executive Direct' Richard Briggs 1
expects to see development of programs on the
consumer side recreational boat users and the
purveyors of boat and recreational equipment in
Closer relationships with the Greater Miami Marine
Association, Marine Industries Association of South
Florida, Marine Industries Association of Florida, and
groups such as BOAT/US, also may be developed.
Briggs also reported that a second Marine Industry -
Summit is being planned, although no agenda has been
developed. The pattern established during the 1991
meeting, reported in Waterfront News, was functional
and may be adopted for a second year.
In addition, a committee of Marine Council and
Miami Chamber Members are exploring the advantages
of encouraging development of a megayacht marina in
Dade. Feasibility of such a marina operation is being
studied along with the potential, economic impact and
return on investment in terms of employment and cash
flow for the area. Megayachts today have great needs
and few facilities available for service and maintenance.
An increasing number of megayachts have outgrown
conventional marina facilities.
Marine Council members hope that DERM
representatives are becoming more flexible in terms of
addressing programs to save the manatee, the
environment and even the rights of human beings.
Briggs perceives a trend toward recognizing the
continuing and expanding needs of greater numbers of
boaters and water sports enthusiasts balancing
preservation of the environment, protection of manatee,
and rights of the entire community. He applauded the
perceived shift in attitudes and hopes it may bring
progress in all areas as environmentalists and marine
interests attempt to learn to live together.
The bidding process for the Dinner Key Boat Yard
is underway to find a new operator for the old Merrill-
Stevens yard on South Bayshore Drive in Coconut
Grove, long a resource for local and cruising boaters.
An April 9 meeting has been scheduled so
commissioners can consider a request for proposals. A
committee will be formed to evaluate proposals along
with a certified public accounting firm, nominated to
evaluate the financial aspects of any proposal.
Assistant City Manager Herb Bailey said the
concept will be scaled down a full-service boatyard
and marina, but no restaurant, food or beverage
facilities. Retailing will be limited to marine supplies.

was harvested mechanically, using tow boats dragging
a steel A-frame to break the hydrilla from the bottom.
The weed was then gathered into baskets and put out
to dry. Since it was 95 percent water, it "dried out to
almost nothing." The cost of mechanical harvesting
was about $1,000 per surface acre. Mr. Baker said that
the present cost of herbicide treatment is approximately
$300 to $500 per surface acre. (There are about 15
surface acres in the North New River canal between
Sewell's Lock and SW 64th Street in Davie.)
Gordon Baker said they mostly use the herbicide
Aquathol in the Fort Lauderdale area, and Sonar in the
central Florida lakes. He considers both herbicides
safe for use around adult manatees, saying the diluted
material is almost harmless, but he was sure about
possible effects on baby manatees. "If you look at the
pesticide industry," Baker said, "the one unregulated
thing is private lawn and garden use." He said that
many common lawn chemicals have fine print on labels
cautioning against use near fish, but that most people
don't read them.
Baker said that the water management district plans
to experiment with the use of grass carp in enclosed
canal areas of the C-ll and C-12 canals,
Since 1980, herbicide application in the Crystal
River manatee habitat has been prohibited by the state
from October 1 to April 1, during the manatee
aggregation periods, to protect the habitat. The DNR
Manatee Habitat Preservation Group, an inter-agency
group which meets on an as-needed basis to study and
coordinate state programs that affect manatees, recently
met to study manatee aggregation areas. Jeff Schardt of
the Division of Resource Management said the meeting
was called "so we can tailor our aquatic plant
management to keep from doing damage to critical
Dr. Scott Wright of the state funded Florida Marine
Research Institute in St. Petersburg, which is in charge
of collecting tissue samples from dead manatees, says
that in 1992, "We will test for everything we can,"
although the testing dates have not yet been decided.
The first tissue sample testing by gas
chromatography will be for metals such as mercury,
cadmium, iron, copper, zinc and others, and a second
study will test for herbicides and pesticides in manatee
tissues. Dr. Wright said that large pieces of manatee
tissues are frozen in a tissue bank and will also be
available for later research when better tests are
developed. "Historically, the studies show that
pesticides can compromise the immune systems of
animals," said Dr. Wright.

4 Waterfront News April 1992 Analysis
Presidential candidates and boating issues explored
By JOHN B. ANDERSON
Special to the Waterfront News
As we pass through the thicket of state primaries
and caucuses which are part of the 1992 presidential
race the readers of Waterfront News will be interested
in discovering the views of candidates on the topics of
special interest to boat owners. They will range from
such specifics as taxes on boats to broader topics like
coastal zone management and land use planning which
also impinge on people who live close to the water or
seek it out for recreational purposes.
Although politicians rail against special interests,
they pay attention to them as they draw up the lists for
fundraisers and seek out contributors. They have them
in mind as they draft their speeches and appeals for
votes. Traditionally boat owners and others with allied
interests who are reading this column, although
numerous, are probably not as focused in their political
activity as, say gun owners. They may, of course, be
part of that group too. If they are, they may or may not
know that from a multi-storied modem'office building
in downtown Washington the National Rifle
Association (NRA) with its computerized membership
lists can reach its hundreds of thousands of members
literally overnight about legislation and issues which
they believe threaten their interests. Their power is
both admired and feared. In contrast, a multitude of
both trade and consumer groups which do speak to
many of the interests of the readers of this publication,
although they are sometimes heard from on both state,
local, and national issues, they do not have the rifle
shot effect of the NRA.
Let's take the most notorious single issue, in the
category we are discussing, of the last couple of years
- the luxury tax on certain boats. Yes, there were
some loud protests from the group affected. Broward
County's Congressman E. Clay Shaw and a member
of the House Ways and Means Committee responded
to these constituent-generated complaints to no avail. It
was not a free-standing proposition like the Brady Bill
requiring a waiting period in connection with the sale
of guns. It was part of a much larger tax package with
a myriad of provisions. In turn, this was part and
parcel of an even broader agreement reached earlier in
October of 1990 on how to deal with the budget -
both revenue and expenditure-wise at a so-called bi-
partisan Budget Summit.
How do the candidates still in the race stand on the
issue of a special tax on purchasers of boats? President
George Bush's lips have moved twice once to OK a
tax package which included the tax. Now his lips have
moved again to confess error. His chief tormenter, Pat
Buchanan is, of course, ideologically opposed to any
new taxes of this type.
Among the Democrats views range from former
Governor Jerry Brown's flat tax of 13 percent which
would relate solely to income to former Senator
Tsongas' willingness to consider a targeted reduction
of the capital gains tax to encourage more savings and
also investment over consumption. Governor Bill
Clinton's position on taxes seems to be not all that
much different from Tsongas'. He does go along with
the Democratic leadership in Congress who are
strongly pushing some type of middle class tax cut;
whereas Tsongas has clearly repudiated the idea.
So we are left with the question: which of the
candidates would be more favorable to the interests of
Week of the Ocean set for April
Ocean Odyssey: celebrating
500 years of ocean exploration
FORT LAUDERDALE Individuals, businesses,
campuses and non-profit groups across the United
States are gearing up to celebrate the Ninth National
Week of the Ocean to be held April 19-25, 1992,
according to president/founder Cynthia Hancock.
The theme Ocean Odyssey: Celebrating 500 Years
of Ocean Exploration was chosen in honor of-the
Quincentennial and the group's national co-chairs,
American ocean pioneers whose explorations are not as
widely known as such voyagers as Columbus,
Magellan and, perhaps, the Cousteaus.
National Week of the Ocean members encourage
year-round ocean exploration which encompasses
from the arts to commerce, from history to foods,
from endangered sea creatures to issues such as
offshore drilling or ocean dumping.
-The Fort Lauderdale event now entering its
thirteenth year is planned for April 10 to May 10.
Events include the Fort Lauderdale Billfish
Tournament; Broward County Earth Day; sea chantey
concerts featuring Connecticut's state troubadour Tom
Callinan; the Fort Lauderdale Jaycees Beach Cleanup;
a seafood sampling; a school marine fair involving
more than 80 area schools; and the Yachtsman's Race
to the Reef. The festival "sea-son" ends with Mother
Ocean Day, May 10.
<'.*( (* -.(2 **
the readers of this column? I would submit that to
answer the question you will have to rather carefully
examine each candidate's overall economic philosophy
and program as well as his track record on past
performance. From the strict standard of that type of
analysis in the short term at least the Republican
candidate in November will be anti-tax. But so will the
Democrats. After Fritz Mondale's pledge made in
accepting the 1984 Democratic nomination that he
would raise taxes, he won one state, his home state of
Minnesota and the three electoral votes of the District
of Columbia. No Democrat has forgotten that.
However, Jerry Brown has talked about a
consumption tax of 14 percent. Presumably he is
flirting with the European value-added tax (VAT)
which would certainly raise the prices of many
manufactured goods, including, of course, not only
boats but a lot of other things as well. Tsongas in his
now celebrated platform, "A Call To Economic Arms"
uses this ringing phrase: "Through the New American
Mandate our people will affirm their commitment to a
policy that defines the common good as the promotion
of investment over consumption." Arguably there
could be buried in that language a future VAT tax.
Governor Clinton years ago lost his initial bid for re-
election as Governor of Arkansas after he raised state
taxes in his first term. To date he has been extremely
careful not to even hint at any eventual necessity to
raise taxes except on the very rich where he would
raise the maximum income tax rate to 35 percent and
also favor a surtax on this class of taxpayer.
If all of this doesn't leave you feeling totally secure
about the answer to the question I posed, stay tuned.
The campaign still has a way to go. Before it's over
they may all have a message like that of former Senator
Russell Long, long-time chairman of the Senate
Finance Commitee. He said when he wrote a tax bill it
could be summed up as: "Don't tax you. Don't tax me.
Tax that fellow behind the tree." Then there was also
the French Finance Minister of long ago who said that
the art of taxing the public was a lot like plucking a
goose. You should strive for a maximum amount of
feathers and a minimum amount of hissing.
Editor's note: This is the first in a series of articles
written by former Congressman John B. Anderson.
His column will run through November. Rep.
Anderson currently resides part-time east of the
Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale. He was a
candidate for President of the United States in 1980.

Survey shows need for more boat launch ramps
WASHINGTON Gaining access to the nation's
waterways can entail long trips and long waits in many
parts of the country according to boating facilities
experts. Correlating recently compiled data which
counts just 18,696 public boat launching ramps from
coast to coast with more than 16 million boats in use
today suggests as many as 800 craft vie for each
access point. "Many states have done a commendable
job providing access to fishermen, hunters and those
who use boats for varied outdoor recreation, but the
statistics indicate much more needs to be done," says
National Marine Manufacturers Association's Facility
Development director Ron Stone.
Findings of the NMMA Boat Ramp Survey,
completed in December, 1991, indicate that a majority
of public ramps 60 percent serve inland lakes or
ponds and 27 percent access rivers. These facilities are
funded and managed most often by state governments
(37 percent), local governments (16 percent) and
federal agencies (14 percent). Top ten boat launch
ramp facility states are, in order: Minnesota (with
2,321 locations), Wisconsin (1,610), Michigan
(1,101), Washington (898), Oregon (801), Texas
(742), Illinois (655), California (644), South Carolina
(536) and Pennsylvania (494). By definition, each
facility has at least one launch lane, though some have
as many as fifteen, and adjacent parking facilities for
tow vehicles and trailers.
"Progressive state and local planners are learning
that the same benefits which accrue to marina facilities
are shared with their launch ramp cousins," explains
Stone. "Building berths or ramps actually increases
demand because the quality of the boating experience
improves. With increased use comes benefits to local
economies where water-bound outdoorspeople shop,
gain sustenance, seek service, spend and raise tax
In addition to identifying in which states launching
ramps are located, additional details of this survey
show number of launch lanes, parking spaces,
construction details, management, and type of water
served. An earlier survey by NMMA verified more
than 6,000 marinas in the U.S., detailing location,
number of berths, etc.

Marine Advisory Committee
questions manatee protection plans
Editor's note: The following is an open letter to
Broward County Commission Chairman John Hart
from the county's Marine Advisory Committee
concerning manatee protection measures proposed by
Dear Commissioner John Hart:
Members of the Marine Advisory Committee are
deeply disturbed over the Feb. 6 response you
received from Pamela P. McVety, director of Florida's
Division of Marine Resources, regarding
recommendations submitted by the Broward County
Manatee Protection and Boating Safety Task Force.
It is rather apparent to our committee that the well-
meaning intentions and essence of the county's task
force suggestions have been largely ignored and little
attention paid to how man and manatee can
successfully cohabitate here in Broward County.
If the designs of the Marine Resources Division are
adopted, we feel these will impose severe restrictions
on the economy of Broward County and the lifestyles
of its residents and visitors. The negative impact poses
severe implications for not only the marine industry
but also travel and tourism, real estate and innumerable
support services which make up the primary base of
In what should support this claim, an economic
impact study related to Broward County is now being
prepared by the University of Miami's Boating
Research Center. This study, which has been
commissioned by the Marine Industries Association of
South Florida and Safe Boating Roundup, should be
completed in advance of a scheduled April 14 public
In the meantime, we urgently request that you
schedule a special joint meeting of the Marine
Advisory Committee and the Manatee Protection and
Boating Safety Task Force prior to the April 14 public
hearing. You may also wish to request that a
representative from the Department of Natural
Resources, Office of Protected Species Management,
be present so that we can more constructively approach
reaching an amicable consensus.
John J. Grady, Jr.,Chairman
Marine Advisory Committee
Non-motorized boats over-taxed by state
To the Editor:
On February 26, 1992, I attempted to obtain a
Transfer of Title from the State Tag Agency in
Lakeland, FL for a small rowboat.
The Tag Agency clerk and supervisor refused to
issue me a Transfer of Title unless I also purchased a
Florida State Registration Sticker, (required only for
powered boats) at an additional cost of $6.25.
Knowing Florida State law, I challenged the
agency to produce the written code. They were
cooperative but unable to do so. They indicated that
someone from the Department of Natural Resources
(DNR) had phoned and instructed them to charge all
boaters the fee. The supervisor could not remember
who,it was they spoke to.
Enforced state code is now phoned in! This
certainly is not good government. The DNR dictates
code over the phone?
Later in the day, the Supervisor of the Tag Agency
called to apologize for their error and indicated they
had been charging the public at tag agencies throughout
the state for years.
There are 700,000 registered boaters in the state,
most of whom are voters and if you consider that only
one in 10 owns a canoe, rowboat, or small day
sailboat, then over the last seven years the DNR has
collected well over three MILLION dollars to which
they were not entitled!
The DNR should right this terrible wrong by
refunding to the people of Florida the money collected
All boaters of canoes, rowboats, sailboats, etc. that
do not have a motor are entitled to a refund and
apology from the DNR.
Seems to me that the DNR owes Florida state
taxpayers a lot of money plus interest. What do you

Dock debate ignored water pollution
To the Editor:
I attended the meetings of the City Commission at
which the recommended restrictions on dock usage by
homeowners was vetoed. At the same time it was
recommended that residential docks should not be used
for commercial repairs, signs "For Sale" or "Rent" and
liveaboards. It seems that nothing is ever followed
Also, Project F2360 (Cooley's Landing)
concerning the proposed air conditioning of the
shower area is ridiculous. It is totally unnecessary and
is going to be a huge electric bill for the city. It will
present a real problem for people hanging out there in
the summer season.
All .areas with homeowners associations seem to
have pet projects and the most important project for Ft.
Lauderdale is completely ignored: THE POLLUTION
OF OUR WATERWAYS. The minute you bring that

up there is a huge cry that everyone is against the
liveaboards. That is not true. We are all against
irresponsible liveaboards. It makes no sense that on the
west side of the Karen Canal there must be a five foot
easement on each side of our docks and no
liveaboards. On the east side of the Karen Canal which
is Hendricks Isle and Isle of Venice the boats are rafted
like firewood. Don't they have fires on that side? The
pollution by all the liveaboards is disgusting.
Why can't the owners of the properties on
Hendricks Isle and the Isle of Venice be forced to tie
into sewerage? I see by the ad in your paper that there
is a company that manufactures sanitation systems.

about the pollution problem the city is going to be in

Commission cuts through the
abandoned vessel lip service
To the Editor:
Some time ago, after a futile five-month effort to
have a motor yacht removed from the canal between
Nassau and Okeechobee Lanes [Waterfront News,
Jan. 92] my wife wrote to Commissioner Scott Cowan
to ask for his help. Up to that point, the best we had
gotten from Broward County Zoning, the Broward
Sheriffs Office and the Florida Marine Patrol was lip
service, referral from one agency to the next, and
denial of jurisdiction.
Commissioner Cowan's written response was in
our mailbox within three days; within a week we had
an assurance from County Administrator Jack
Osterholt (through Cowan's office) that action would
be taken without delay. In a little more than a month,
the boat had been raised and removed. Unfortunately,
a boating accident, caused by the boat blocking the
waterway, occurred in the meantime.
We are very appreciative of the outstanding
assistance provided by Commissioner Scott Cowan
and his aide, Carol Fitzgerald; perhaps if we had
contacted them sooner, the accident would have been

When I accelerate my motor and drop back down,
I hear a tremendous thump. When I just speed up
slowly, I don't hear it at all. The boat runs good except
for that thump as I advance and retard the engine.
Could it be the main bearing? I don't see anything at all
and nothing seems to be loose.
Everything you say indicates a broken or loose
motor mount. With the hatches open, advance and
retard the throttle. Have the boat securely tied to the
dock and put it in forward. See if the engine lifts off
the stringers. Be careful! You will notice the engine tilt
away from a defective mount and thump as you bring
the throttle back down.
I find water in my boat every time I go out for a
run in it. It is a fresh water tank. The water pump is
new as I replaced it as I felt that was where the water
was coming from. The salt water pump does not leak
any. All my hoses are tight and double clamped. Does
not leak at all ovemite and find no water in bilge in the
morning. Go out for a run and bilges are with water.
No leaks or bad hoses I can see.
I would check my exhaust system. A cracked or
split muffler or exhaust pipe or hose could be dribbling
water into the bilge. This is extremely dangerous as
carbon monoxide gas could be also leaking into your
cabin or other parts of your boat. Lift your hatches and
see if water is coming from the back of your boat
down to the bilges. Usually you can smell the exhaust
if the leak is large. Check all hoses and mufflers and
I was out last Sunday on the Intracoastal and it
was a mess speeding, big wakes, overloaded boats,
people sitting on the bow rails, etc. It seems there is no
control over anything. Maybe through your column
you could reach some of these people and advise or tell
them what to do or not to do. You risk your boat, your
family and your life on the water today.
I really do not go out on the weekends anymore as
you are right about the mayhem on the water today.
We of the Coast Guard Auxiliary and the Power
Squadron give classes on boat safety and the Coast
Guard Auxiliary do vessel inspection and safety
seminars and rules of the road but people have to come
The courts are now sending us people who break
the rules but you can't catch them all. All these (7
miles per hour) rules and no wake zones are there
because of the inconsiderate few. Between the muscle
boats, the jet skis, and the speed demons the
Intracoastal looks like the Atlantic in a heavy storm.
I have a twin engine cabin cruiser that I use about
once a week. Runs swell and I do most of the
maintenance myself. Nothing major, but oil changes,
filters, plugs, etc. On the last change the oil poured out
of the port engine more like water, thin and no
viscosity not like the other engine. I'm worried about
that and I'm wondering what could have caused that.
Hate to have a problem that I could correct now.
Whenever you check your oil you can also check
the viscosity or quality of your oil. When oil is being
thinned out by gas diluting it, it mostly comes from
your fuel pump having a cracked or split diaphragm.
This enters into the crankcase and thins out the oil. It
shows more oil on the dip stick and can in excessive
amounts cause ring and cylinder damage. Remove
your fuel pump and replace it and check your oil
regularly on both engines.
I met you at the auxiliary building at Fort
Lauderdale when I took the auxiliary Boating Safety
and Seamanship. You gave us the Marine Engine
course and when I was out in my boat with my wife
and kids my boat quit and would not start.
SMy wife, who had taken the classes with me, said
she heard you say check your fuel filter, also other
things. I found a fuel line that had kinked and would
not allow fuel to flow freely and my engine did not get
We both thank you and want to let you and the
Coast Guard Auxiliary know that you really helped
this family. We got started and we and the kids got

good to hear that we are getting a positive response
from our lessons and courses we teach. Marine

only some of our other classes.
Thank you for writing and tell your friends that

Riverwalk's boat a
By JEFFREY G. HARRELL
Waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE Riverwalk project
officials and commercial boat owners aren't exactly
losing sleep over access inconveniences construction is
causing along the banks of New River in downtown
But, then, they're not exactly dismissing the
situation with a shrug of the shoulder, either.
"We had to shut down facilities around Riverwalk
due to liability considerations with the contract
workers," says Jamie Hart, supervisor of marine
facilities for the City of Fort Lauderdale.
"We also had to shift around some tenants, and
that wasn't the easiest thing to do. But we've got to
make do with what we have."
What city officials and private businessmen
associated with Riverwalk have is a $100 million-plus
renovation project that some say is currently leaving
little room for pedestrian traffic along the Riverwalk
bank due to Riverwalk's "linear park" theme. The
project's plans call for lush landscaping between the
river bank and the sidewalk, but some say the
landscaping and the river bank's natural design make
for limited access to the shore for those stepping off
"There's been some jaw-flapping about the
sidewalk on the north side (of New River)," says Bob
Bekoff, owner of a local water taxi business.
"Even if there were a motor yacht with a tide-ride
ladder, they couldn't use it because the walk isn't
exactly adjacent to the sidewalk. If you get out from
the slips, you might have to walk through some
Still, Bob Dugan, vice-president of Riverwalk
architects Ed Stone & Associates and project manager
of Riverwalk, says the area from the river onto
Riverwalk already provides adequate access.
"We originally addressed that facility as a linear
park with marine uses," Dugan says. "Some areas
were tight, limited in the amount of space available,
and we had to keep a soft surface adjacent to the
seawall. The result was some grass up against the
seawall, but there were never any hard and fast
requirements by the city to keep surfaces against the
seawall as hard surfaces."
Dugan also says the project's original criteria called
for the provision of privacy extended toward those
living aboard boats docked along Riverwalk's
boundaries. Riverwalk planners expect a high volume
of pedestrian traffic along the area's sidewalk,
especially during special events such as the monthly
jazz festivals and the Fort Lauderdale Seafood Festival,
but Dugan says liveaboards shouldn't have to worry
about strangers hopping aboard their floating homes.
"The criteria for the design was also to provide
some level of privacy for boaters who lived on their
boats along New River by separating them from the
potentially large pedestrian population that is
expected," Dugan says.
"An area has been designated for larger tour boats
and a higher pedestrian volume between Southeast 1st
and Southeast 2nd, and the pedestrians generally need
a hard surface to get on and off the boat comfortably.
We felt that those living on boats didn't have a critical
need to get on or off their boat comfortably, and,
again, the whole idea was to separate those boaters
living on their boats from the high volume of
pedestrian traffic. That's why there is landscaping
between the river and the sidewalk in most of the area."
Hart says Dugan has a point; liveaboards shouldn't
be subject to high volumes of pedestrian traffic.
"I would have preferred more walking space on the
land side with adjacency to the seawall," Hart says.
"But it would have cost a fortune and they didn't have
much land to work with anyway. Besides, that's only
a minor problem. Very minor."
A bigger problem affecting boaters that has
surfaced involves the heavy construction work that is

access problems ma
cutting into an already limited amount of dockage
space in the area. With the major portion of the
project's work completed between S.E. 1st and S.E.
5th, the incompleted area between S.E. 1st and
Brickell has presented some problems in the way of
"Dock-rental revenues are down from the
construction,"says Fort Lauderdale Mayor Jim Naugle.
"The projection was $700,000 (annually), but the
city's only been able to take in about $540,000."
Lower-than-expected revenues coupled with the
area's construction traffic could mean a revamping of
the dockage system along New River. Currently,
parallel dockage space is provided along the seawall
and boaters wishing to walk around Riverwalk are able
to bypass construction areas by walking to the
sidewalk from the adjoining property.
Dugan says it's up to the city to program the
"Previously," Dugan says, "the size of the boats
were such that they didn't pose a problem. Now, there
are bigger boats in the area. It's more of a matter of
programming by the city; the boats need to be
positioned according to the configuration of the
shoreline and to the availability of the provisional
facilities, like fueling facilities, in the area."
"Right now there's a problem because the dock is
tom apart at Bubier Park," says Beckoff. "But that's a
construction problem and they're going to put in a new
one. So, it's only a temporary problem."
According to Naugle, another temporary problem
has surfaced around the Cooley docks. "It's just sitting -
there without electrical wiring," he says. "They're
dragging their feet, and it's costing about $30,000 a
month. I'm really disappointed in Cooley's situation.
"I'm not real thrilled with the service centers
(electrical power boxes for docking boats to plug into)
they've put in," the mayor adds. "They're these flimsy
fiberglass things; they don't look like they would hold
up very well over a long period of time."
Still, says Bekoff, "A project of (Riverwalk's)
magnitude can be fixed. If they do some good
landscape planning and throw a few dollars at it, then
they can fix it"
Hart's dockage proposal, which was recently
approved by the Marine Advisory Board, is being
F. Ludrdle Mim
.y be temporary
viewed as a shot in the arm to the area's future dockage
situation. The four-point plan calls for:
1. Day Dockage Dockage space for boaters
who want to spend the day at a Riverwalk activity,
such as the monthly jazz festival or the Seafood
Festival. The plan provides space for boaters to dock
their boats for up to 24 hours.
2. Seasonal Dockage The seasonal dockage
facet of the plan provides up to six months dockage
space for boaters participating in transient activities.
3. Commercial Dockage Space around Brickell
Avenue will be provided for charter boats, sightseeing
boats and other commercial boating operations
provided there is enough off-street parking to handle
the traffic patronizing the commercial boating
4. Long-term Dockage The plan's final facet
provides dockage space for liveaboards. So far, two
facilities will handle long-term dockage space:
Cooley's Landing Marina and the 1,000 feet of
dockage space at Sailboat Bend.
Still, Hart is holding his breath since land leases
key to expansion of day-dockage areas have yet to be
"We can't do much of anything until those leases
are completed," says Hart.
In spite of the problems, boaters, the city and the
contractors have all gotten along minus any
extraordinary amount of bickering. For the most part,
Riverwalk has been a city-financed project laced with
looming political implications since the project's
thinking stages, yet, public officials and the private
business sector have managed to work together with a
minimum of animosity directed toward each other in
public and virtually no instances of the usual name-
"We've had our problems and our differences,"
says Hart, "but we all work pretty close together.
"Time has been a major concern of mine, and not
all of the project has met the time specifications that
were originally set.-But I'm still amazed that we can
do these things in the amount of time they've been

Political changes in store
for Marine Advisory Board
By M.G. SWIFT waterfront usage issue.
Waterfront News writer It may depend on who Naugle and Keno name to
the board and how newcomer Irwin Siegel comes
FORT LAUDERDALE With current long-time
chairman Arne Carlson stepping down from the
Marine Advisory Board, the newly appointed panel
which takes office later this spring, will elect new
Sources say a power struggle may ensue.
Two possible successors are waterfront civic
activist Sonny Irons of Riverside Park, and Las Olas
attorney Hugh Chappell.
Both were renominated to the MAB for the 1992-
'93 session by City Commissioner Jack Latona who
represents the southwest section of the city.
Irons is known as a staunch supporter of liberal
dock usage, city policies and the marine industry.
Chappell, on the other hand, believes in
conserving the integrity of single family waterfront
neighborhoods and fears a creeping "commercial
intrusion" into the city's residential waterways.
MAB Vice Chairman Chris Jacoby is also
resigning in April. Board member Jim McKee has not
been renominated by City Commissioner Cary Keno of
Victoria Park. Keno said he is unsure whether or not
he is going to rename Shady Banks Realtor Bruce
Tyrrell to the advisory panel.
Each member of the commission has three seats to
fill on the 15-member board. By March 19, only two
new panelists newspaperman and United States
Coast Guard Auxiliary leader Irwin Siegel and Coral
Ridge attorney Bruce Leary were named to the
Mayor Jim Naugle is holding off on naming his
last MAB pick until the April 7 City Commission
meeting. Naugle is said to be considering several
candidates, including Shady Banks court reporter Guy
Though the City Commission recently voted 4-1 in
favor of gutting an old city ordinance governing dock
rentals in residential neighborhoods, an informal straw
poll of the incoming MAB members predicts that six
would vote in favor of dock rentals, six opposed and
three undecided or unknown.
No matter who takes over as MAB chairman, the
board is likely to swerve to the right or left on the
down on dock rentals.
A telltale sign of the political bent of the new board
will probably be indicated at the panel's May 7

roster as was recorded in late March.

New hurricane manual to be sent to Dade boaters
By HANK JONES
Waterfront News writer
MIAMI --The first definitive report for marine
interests on preparing for a hurricane is being crafted
by Kate Hale and her staff. Hale is Director of
Emergency Planning for Dade County.
It is an effort that could produce results for boaters
nationally, in generic terms, with special specific-
benefits for South Florida boaters, residents and
waterfront property owners, as well as boatyards and
The report will be presented at a National
Hurricane Conference April 8-10 at Norfolk, VA.
Once finalized and adopted, it will be mailed to all
registered boat owners in Dade County.
"Wehave no budget for a larger mailing, although
we are seeking sponsors who may be willing to
provide copies to interested boaters in South Florida
and throughout the country," Hale said.
Funding for the project came from Florida Inland
Navigation District (FIND) and from the South Florida
Water Management District, with the Boater's
Improvement Fund also contributing, Hale said.
She is currently soliciting South Florida
recreational boating interests in an effort to gain greater
circulation for the manual. Local need is dramatic.
Hale reported 95,000 boats registered in the area
between Deerfield Beach and Key Largo. Additional
cruising yachts also could be caught within South
Florida should a hurricane strike.
The stark and dramatic issue Hale presents to
boaters and others living within hurricane evacuation
zones is simple.
"With a storm of major proportions, high tide and
a marked storm surge, it might only depend on which
quadrant of an incoming storm struck this portion of
the coast," Hale said.
In a worst-case scenario, she said, "Not to decide
to evacuate is to decide to die. I hope people who
resolve to ride out the storm under dangerous
Wall Units &

conditions won't suddenly call my office and ask for a
rescue effort. There will be no help available."
She said 90 percent of the local boating population
is inexperienced when it comes to confronting and
surviving a hurricane, much less a major storm with
winds approaching 125 miles an hour.
In addition, Hale reported, meteorological
breakthroughs resulting from use of new surface
doppler radar show that tornadoes, microbursts and
wind shears do exist within hurricanes. Such
phenomena had not been considered to be threats
during tropical storms.
As hurricane danger approaches, Hale said,
potential rescue craft won't be available. The U.S.
Coast Guard, Florida Marine Patrol, and local police
and rescue agencies are expected to remove boats from
the water for safety. These are vessels expected to be
in great demand after the storm, and their preservation
Crew members aboard boats will be on their own.
Similarly, residents on shore, especially the
elderly, infirm and those living on barrier islands like
Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale's beach and Palm
Beach, may quickly become beyond help when
Electric service will be questionable as lines go
down and many emergency generators, installed in
basements or sub-surface garages will be flooded out
by tides and/or a storm surge.
Along Hollywood Beach, for example, even
"normal" spring and fall tides put State Road A1A
under water when the Intracoastal Waterway floods its
Ashore, Hale persisted, potential for rescue is little
better than for those trying to survive aboard boats.
Refugees will flood roads leading inland. Invariably
there will be accidents, debris on road surfaces and
blocking traffic. Glass from broken windows and
other road hazards will make driving difficult, or
impossible. The nature of emergency vehicles, riding
high on the road, gives them a sail effect in high

winds. Once it becomes dangerous to operate over the
road even these vehicles will be removed from service
since need for them will be far more pressing after a
storm. Hurricane Hugo demonstrated this in dramatic
For boaters, there appear to be few, if any
hurricane refuges. Hale discounts the Miami River as a
safe haven. The Water Management District already
has announced that under certain conditions, to
minimize major life-threatening flooding inland, waters
from Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades may be
released to rush downstream even as the tide is at its
highest and a storm surge pushes water levels to
The agenda calls for the newly-authorized plan to
be available by May which may or may not provide
boating interests with time to implement any actions
before hurricane season opens June 15.
Long-time Florida residents know the area is
overdue for a major hurricane. Each year only lowers
the odds that Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Monroe
and Martin Counties will be in the path of the next big
Hale is one of the dedicated people in South
Florida who "cry wolf" year after year. Because so
few Floridians have experienced a hurricane, the next
major storm is likely to be devastating.
One statistic underlines the potential for tragedy.
Authorities now discuss a 30-hour time frame to
evacuate the Keys, thus posing the possibility many
evacuees will be caught on the open road south of
Florida City or on Florida's Turnpike should a
hurricane strike the low-lying islands.
There are questions that Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach barrier islands can be evacuated in 24 hours.
Should a vital bridge be knocked out or a stretch of
A1A be closed the toll could become incalculable.
Informed boat owners know Dade's flotilla plan to
evacuate boats has been abandoned. Broward's plan
exists on paper, but there are few inland hurricane
With so much of Lake Worth providing exposed
waters in Palm Beach County, and no extensive access
to the west, marine interests face equal peril.
As never before, Hale's. message, and the new
hurricane manual, should be understood and acted
Sheer numbers of individuals combined with lack
of hurricane experience make early response time in
seeking safety paramount.

Speed zone challenge thwarted
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
RIVIERIA BEACH A marina owner's year-
long court battle to nullify three 25-mph speed zones
in effect in Palm Beach County's Intracoastal
Waterway has been thwarted again.
Recently, Old Slip Marina owner John Sprague
presented final oral arguments for his case at the First
District Court of Appeals in Tallahassee. The court
refused to make a decision on the issue, thereby

WEST PALM BEACH The South Florida
Water Management District has approved the
Everglades cleanup plan.
The plan calls for spending about $400 million
over the next several years to reduce pollution that is
flowing into the Everglades from area agriculture.
However, Glades residents and sugar interests are
complaining that the plan will hurt their livelihoods
because of its cost.
Boynton receives money to dredge
BOYNTON BEACH The city of Boynton has
obtained an $80,000 grant from the Florida Inland
Navigation District to dredge a channel at Boat Club
Park to provide safer boater access to the Intracoastal
The city is currently working its way through the
permitting process, which may include having to spend
$12,500 on mitigation due to sea grass loss expected
from the project.
Boca residents upset with 25-mph
BOCA RATON Waterfront residents in Boca
Raton are concerned about damage to their docks and
seawalls since the 25-mph speed limit was enacted
along the Intracoastal Waterway.
Residents are complaining that boaters are
speeding through a half-mile stretch of ICW just north
of the Palmetto Park Road Bridge, which used to be
designated as a no-wake zone.
Department of Natural Resources officials
responded that the particular stretch of ICW in question
has not been designated as a manatee protection area
and thus boaters needs have to be considered.

affirming the prior court's ruling.
Sprague has been fighting a Department of Natural
Resources (DNR) rule which enacted 25-mph speed
limits on three stretches of the ICW: from the Martin
County line to the SR 707 bridge, 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.
Sprague and other boaters claim they were caught
off-guard when Governor Lawton Chiles and the
Cabinet enacted the emergency speed zones which then
Sprague stated: "We always believed DNR short-
circuited the proper procedure in developing a rule; the
department noticed an innocuous small seasonal 25-
mph zone in the very north end of the county, and later
amended that rule after the time to challenge the
proposed rule had expired, which changed 1.3 miles
of regulated waterway to 21 miles of Palm Beach
County ICW which now has the 25-mph limit.
Sprague, who is currently vice-president of Palm
Beach County's Marine Industries Association, cites
several reasons for wanting to have the zones
They include a low manatee mortality rate in the
county, water and jet skiers who can't run at 25-mph,
and boats which can't maintain that speed without
causing larger-than-needed wakes.
Sprague, whose original challenge to the rule was
thrown out in a Florida administrative hearing because
it was not filed within the allowable time period of 21
days after the rule was enacted, said he continues to
appeal the decision because he feels boaters were
dumped on with little prior warning or public
discussion of the potential problems with the rule.
Sprague asserted: "Regardless of the outcome of
this court's ruling, I will file another rule challenge to
the 25-mph speed zones because they are arbitrary and
capricious; they (DNR) never gave the Manatee
Protection and Boater Safety Plan developed by all
concerned interests a chance to work before adding
Sprague, who said revised manatee counts show
that the manatee population is much larger than
previously thought, says he is not a manatee hater but
that the speed zones are unnecessary because 90
percent of the manatees are swimming and feeding in
the slow and idle speed buffers which are located
throughout the county.

Palm Beach Squadron
elects new commando
By BOB KUSHNER
Special to the Waterfront News
Kenneth P. MacPherson, a 15-year resident of
Singer Island has been elected Commander of the 400-
member Palm Beach Power Squadron, one of the
largest and most active boating groups in the state.
A Harvard graduate and a decorated combat
infantry veteran of World War II, MacPherson will be
installed with five other squadron officers at the
Change of Watch ceremonies on March 20, 1992, at 9
p.m. at the Beach Club, Palm Beach. The others, all
Lt. Commanders, are:'Margaret A. Roselli of Palm
Beach Gardens, Executive Officer; Charles J.
O'Connor of Tequesta, Education Officer; Herbert N.
Waze of Boca Raton, Administratiave Officer, Rodney
G. Landsman, of Jupiter, Secretary; and Sidney C.
Shapiro of West Palm Beach, Treasurer.
MacPherson, a native of Massachusetts, became
active in local community affairs shortly after he and
his wife, Abby, retired to Singer Island from
Wellesley, Mass., where he was the owner-operator of
a travel agency. As a Floridian, he has been a board
member and past president of a Singer Island
condominium and a former vice-president and a
director for 12 years of the Singer Island Civic
An avid boater, MacPherson joined the Palm
Beach Power Squadron seven years ago and has
participated in many of the unit's regular cruises to the
Bahamas and the Keys. More recently, while serving
as Executive Officer of the non-profit group, which
specializes in marine safety courses for both power
and sail boaters, he taught the Squadron's Instructor
In World War II, he served as a platoon sergeant
with U.S. ski troops on the Italian front, earning two
Bronze Stars in addition to the Combat Infantryman's
Badge and several Battle Stars.
The MacPhersons do their boating aboard the
"Nessie III," their 38' sportfish cruiser. They have
four grown children, two sons and two daughters, and
They also have adopted three foster children in

Water rights conference
stresses many boater concerns
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
STUART, Fla. Close to 200 people from all
over the country attended the National Water Rights
Conference held in Stuart recently.
The conference, hosted by Concerned Boaters,
featured an assortment of government agency officials,
legal experts, and other well-informed individuals who
presented information on a number of water rights
issues, such as the public trust doctrine, anchoring,
liveaboards, marina access, and navigational
Valerie Jones, president of Concerned Boaters,
stated, "I think the conference was a real success -
we had an excellent cross-section of people attending,
with over half of them coming from outside of
The keynote speaker of the event, Coastal States
Organization director David Slade, attempted to define
individuals' rights in terms of the public trust doctrine,
which gives people certain rights to the land, water,
and living resources located from the mean high tide
mark on down.
Slade related that anyone lawfully allowed to live
in the U.S. is a beneficiary of the public trust doctrine
and thus has the right to fish, navigate, and recreate in
public trust waters.
One of the major issues that was discussed at the
conference was the regulation of liveaboards.
Currently, under the public trust doctrine, a person
who is anchored and not navigating does not have a
legal right to be at their chosen location.
Because of complaints from waterfront property
owners and others, liveaboards all over the country
have been assaulted with increasing numbers of
regulations. Florida's Department of Natural
Resources (DNR), for example, is in the process of
making a new rule which would redefine liveaboards
and perhaps further restrict them throughout the state.
University of Florida marine expert Gustavo
Antonini related that liveaboards are an integral part of
the communities in which they live, and have a
positive social and economic impact on their
Craig Wanous, editor of Living Aboard, related
that the bad press received by liveaboards is largely
unwarranted. In compiling a profile of liveaboards
who make their home in the Florida Keys, Wanous
reported that only three percent of the liveaboard
population is considered "mavericks" or social
According to his survey results, 47 percent of
liveaboards have an annual income of 25-75K, and 40
percent have incomes over 70K. Only 13 percent of
those liveaboards surveyed had incomes below 25K.
Wanous estimates that there are presently about
70,000 liveaboards throughout the U.S., of which 80
percent are couples.
As a result of the conference, members of
Concerned Boaters, a group which represents almost
2,000 boaters nationwide, are in the process of
drawing up an action plan to work on liveaboard and
other issues of concern to boaters.
Ron Salvadore, vice-president of Concerned
Boaters, believes that the problem which needs to be
addressed is the abundance of local regulations and
rules that are being passed by municipalities under the
Home Rule Powers Act.
Salvadore believes that it's too expensive to fight
local rules in court and that it would be more
productive to promote state and federal laws which
would supersede local rules and give boaters fair usage
of the waterways.
Salvadore stated, "If DNR is intent on making
rules, they should make some boater-friendly rules,
such as setting aside more Coast Guard designated
anchorages and shoreside facilities."

Laws for a water-based society
By HERB MARKOW
Special to the Waterfront News
Admiralty law has been around a long time, so
what's so special about small boat law?
Small boat law, facing in a non-traditional
direction, deals with pleasure boating activities in a
For some 2000 years, admiralty covered the laws
of shipping. These vessels were, and are, meant to"
stay at sea to earn money for their owners by carrying
cargo, passengers and trading. While tied to shore,
they don't make money. Conversely, a pleasure boat is
meant to be tied to the land at the pleasure of its owner.
By definition, it is prohibited from commerce or
money making except for certain regulated activities.
The average pleasure boat's offshore endurance for
longer than a weekend calls for extensive preparation
as it must return to shore quickly for land-based
support fuel, water, food, shelter from bad weather
- just look at the stack of bills and the dates and
reasons they were incurred.
Granting the obvious, What is this mysterious
It is a descriptive label for an emerging
phenomenon in boating. Admiralty law has been
extensively documented over time. Congress and the
courts have begun to drag it into the 20th Century in
the face of some issues raised by pleasure boats, but it
is a subject matter essentially beyond pleasure boat
interests except for certain deep foundational roots.
Pleasure boat concerns (which, for commonality of
interest can include small commercial vessels as harbor
craft, fishing boats, work boats) are touched only
fleetingly in modem admiralty texts. Before World
War II, the courts treated pleasure boats as small ships,
but the boating explosion of the past 40 years
compelled court recognition that pleasure boating
doctrines are diverging from admiralty. The challenge
of small boat law is to organize the new doctrines into
a new discipline.
Water-based society sounds like deep philosophy.
It is, but to lighten up, take a marina example: Courts
have defined marinas as any facilities for sale, repair,
rental, storage, and servicing of boats, or docks or
basins providing secure moorings for motorboats and
yachts and often offering supplies, repairs, and other
facilities. But for the water-based society we expand
the idea: A marina is a trailer park in the water, a trailer
park is a town without a cemetery. Here the occupant
or marina operator suddenly faces on the water the
whole spectrum of land-based communal worries
about road access, police and fire protection, water,
electricity, sewage, garbage, trash, basic
environmental protection, land use, amenities,
schooling, civic support, and who pays what to
whom, and how. Such are not covered in admiralty
texts because these extensively involve land-based law.
Ask your local city manager anywhere among
Florida's waterfront communities.
Taking the pleasure out of pleasure boating has
been the intrusion of drug smuggling by small boats
which merge so easily among pleasure boats whose
operators don't contemplate learning the law of search
and seizure. Examples go on and on, but as they say in
electronic broadcast media: Stay tuned.
Apart from academics, why should boaters care
about such niceties?
Perceive or not, like it or not, this fabric of law
overlays conduct and activities of the individual boater
or the professional in the industry who bellies up to his
counter to face the problems of the day. Accordingly,
in the classroom we stress litigation repellant, or how
to avoid cruising in hot water. We don't mean how to
drive a boat. In a recent decision, the judge noted
Voltaire's observation that he suffered ruination only
twice in his life: once when he lost a lawsuit, and once
again when he won one.

20 Waterfront News April 1992 Commerce
Chartering your yacht? Consider the tax implications
By DAVID KENNEDY, CPA &
THOMAS OLIVETO, CPA
Special to the Waterfront News
In our current "soft" economy, many boat owners
are feeling the financial strain caused by high
maintenance costs. While many individuals are able to
absorb these rising costs, some are forced to re-
examine their willingness and ability to continue such
expenditures. In some extreme cases, owners have
been forced to sell their boats.
However, before any decision to charter is made,
there are several areas which should be carefully
scrutinized by the boat owner.
Chartering may have significant income tax
implications for the owner. The effect on the owner's
taxable income will depend on several factors. For
example, one of the governing factors will be the legal
form of business a corporation, a sole
proprietorship, or a partnership. It is important to
remember that a boat is a capital asset, which gives rise
to a taxable gain (or loss) on disposition. Depreciation
expense for the time used in chartering needs to be
taken into account. Also, depreciation taken as a
current deduction will be recaptured as income when
the boat is sold.
An owner-operator will be limited to the amount of
deductions he may take. Chartered time, idle time, and
personal use time must be calculated, recorded, and
documented. An owner-operator who actively
participates and spends his time chartering, captaining,
and managing his boat as a business will be treated
differently for federal income tax purposes than the
owner who merely lists his boat with a broker on a
part-time basis and does nothing further. The owner-
operator, for example, may have rental income and
deductions for the boat lease portion of the fees he
collects, and may have personal service income subject
to self employment taxes for the portion of revenues
which relates to his captaining fees. Under most
circumstances, the tax deductions which are generated
by offering the boat for charter will only serve to
reduce the amount of chartering fees generated by the
activity. The act of chartering for most boat owners
will be subject to the Passive Activity Rules of the
1986 Act, and the owner should understand how his
situation will be affected by the application of these
Any owner who is considering chartering his boat
should consult with his tax advisor before entering into
such a venture.
Finally, the legal implications should be
understood in advance of any chartering. An owner
would be well advised to contact the Coast Guard and
to consult with an attorney who is qualified in
admiralty law. You should have a good understanding
of the "Passenger-for Hire" laws, as well as the
accompanying Coast Guard Certification requirements.
The vessel owner should also be aware of the
provisions of the Jones Act if he provides hired crew
members. This act provides for strict liability by the
owner to such crew members. The requirements of an
owner-operator who is a licensed master and wishes to
take six passengers for an afternoon of fishing are very
different from an owner who lists his boat as available
for a twenty passenger Mediteranean cruise. The
Passenger-for Hire rules, Demised Charter Provisions
.(a situation in which the owner relinqishes control of
the boat to another), and Uninspected Vessel
Regulations, as well as other regulations are detailed in
Volume 6 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Articles
1 through 200. A copy of this code may be obtained at
many marine supply houses and law libraries.
Ensuring compliance with these laws and regulations
is a function of the U.S. Coast Guard. The failure to
comply with these provisions could result in severe
fines and penalties. In addition, please insure that you
and your charterers are aware of the laws regarding the
possession of controlled substances and the misuse of
alcohol on a boat which is underway. Further
information may be obtained by contacting The United
States Coast Guard, Commercial Vessels Inspection.
Obviously, the decision to offer for charter a
privately owned vessel is not one which should be
made lightly. There are many aspects which should be
considered, and the rewards of reducing the operating
costs are not without some disadvantages. While this
option may not be suitable for everyone, many boat
owners have found chartering to be one possible
solution to the problem of the ever-increasing costs of
keeping their boat in the water.

Dania Marine Flea Market set for April 24-26
DANIA Already recognized as the largest event
of its type in the world, the Marine Flea Market will
have vendors with marine and nautical items from all
across the U.S. when it opens to the public on April
24th for the 14th edition of the annual three day event.
Each spring, the Dania Jai-alai parking lot is
transformed into the world's largest nautical swap
shop attracting sellers and buyers from around the
country and across the Caribbean.
"We have already been contacted by marine
companies from as far away as Illinois and Minnesota
coming to liquidate those boating related items that
have accumulated as a result of model changes, over-
ordering, trade-ins, obsolescence or minor damage,"
reports Al Behrendt, originator of the event. Boat
owners and anyone with an interest in things nautical,
find the Marine Flea Market to be a bargain hunter's
In its fourteen year history, the Marine Flea Market
has never had more value to he marine industry than it
will in '92," said Behrendt. "In today's economy,
marine companies can ill afford to carry obsolete or
excess material inventory from one model year to the
next; yet, model year change-overs, optimistic volume
ordering and items returned for minor damage all
translate into a material inventory that cannot be sold
through normal channels. The Dania Marina Flea
Market has, since 1979, provided the ideal vehicle for
bringing buyer and seller together in an atmosphere of
friendly, collective bargaining."
The Marine Flea Market opens to the public at
noon on Friday, April 24th, 9:00 a.m. on Saturday,
April 25th and 9:00 a.m. on Sunday, April 26th. The
Dania Jai-Alai Fronton is easily accessible by car being
only minutes from 1-595 and 1-95 on Dania Beach
Boulevard. Admission for adults is $5.00.

New MIA-Florida president puts
boating on state's agenda
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
WEST PALM BEACH New Marine Industries
Association of Florida (MIA-FLA) president Mark
Masciarotte has succeeded where others have
floundered in getting the boating industries' interests
heard at the state level.
Since becoming president of the MIA-FLA in
January, Masciarotte has convinced Governor Lawton
Chiles and the Cabinet to allow the establishment of a
Florida Boating Advisory Committee. The committee,
an 11-member panel which will be comprised of
representatives from water-related regulatory agencies
and user groups, will offer input on marine issues.
Masciarotte stated, "I wanted to see an advisory
council that could provide DNR with timely and factual
information regarding how the boating industry would
be affected regarding whatever legislation they (the
department) were recommending at the time."
The MIA president has been concerned that boaters
have been constantly playing catch-up to whatever
regulations have come down from the state and that
their input has been negligible on the rule-making
Masciarotte was elected MIA-FLA president last
November and began his term January 1. He presides
over 13 regional associations which make up the MIA
organization. Masciarotte is a past president of the
MIA-PBC. He is current president of Diana Yacht
Designs, a naval architect company.
As president of the MIA-FLA, Masciarotte has
several goals to help the boating industry and still
safeguard the natural resources.
One goal is to see the Florida Keys, one of the
most beautiful and heavily used areas in Florida, get

organized and have a representative in Tallahassee.
The MIA-FLA president related, "Most people go
to the Keys because of the water, which makes that
resource a large part of their economic well-being; it is
also a most fragile area in terms of its ecology, and
thus one of the most heavily regulated.
Another issue that Masciarotte has been concerned
about is a proposal that all boaters obtain an operator's
He stated: "I have been opposed to it from day one
- it's just a money grab bag."
However, Masciarotte has recently seen changes in
the state's views, which are focusing more on boater
"The only possible way to make the waterway
safer and help the environment is to teach people when
they're young," said Masciarotte. "When children start
getting educated about boater safety, adults will soon
Masciarotte favors an educational bill which would
require younger boaters to take boater education
classes as opposed to all boaters, which he feels would
be more difficult to accomplish.
Though currently not a boater himself, Masciarotte
had a captain's license for 15' years and also ran a
marine rescue boat for a number of years in Boston.
As a result of these positions, he has been
impacted by both the regulatory side of boating as well
as the user side, and thus he brings a more balanced
approach to the MIA-FLA presidency.
Masciarotte stated: "My whole thrust is to educate
the public and the officials in government. The public
needs education about the environment in which they
operate boats and about government's potential to
regulate them; the government needs to be better
informed about the boating industry and how
businesses are affected by their regulations."

On April 25, thousands of spectators attending the
Pompano Beach Seafood Festival will witness the
creation of the artificial reef. In conjunction with this
annual event, the Broward Sheriffs Office Bomb and
Arson Unit will explode the 170' freighter Union
Express to create Broward County's newest artificial
reef as part of a conservation effort to attract aquatic
life and enhance the marine environment.
The Union Express was built in Germany in 1960
and, as was the custom, served as a home and
livelihood for a Dutch family as it traveled the rugged
North Seas. With masts that folded down to allow
passage under bridges, the 370-ton vessel transported
food and large quantities of wood. In later years, it
sailed to Haiti and entered the West Indies trade
carrying rice, beans, and collards among the islands of
the Caribbean and the coast of South America.
Eventually, it ran illegal substances and was
confiscated by U.S. Customs and sold at Federal
auction. The Pompano Beach Fishing Rodeo and the
Broward County Office of Natural Resource
Protection jointly purchased the vessel for $35,000
from its latest owner with funds contributed by a
donor and boat registration user fees.

The vessel, presently on the Miami River being
cleaned and prepared for sinking, will be brought to
Port Everglades. Before it leaves the Port, which has
generously donated dockage space, it will be wired for
explosives by the Broward Sheriffs Office Bomb and
Arson Unit. It will then be towed to the designated site
and anchored approximately one-and-a-half miles
offshore of Pompano Beach. Visible to thousands, it
will explode in a huge fireball and slowly descend to a
depth of 110 feet to provide a new underwater habitat
for fish and marine life.
Algae and invertebrate animals will quickly begin
to cover the ship. Within a year, many types of marine
organisms, including sponges and corals will appear.
Soon, it will become the home for lobsters, crabs, and
juvenile fish. Gamefish, such as snapper, grouper,
jacks and kingfish will be attracted to the ship to prey
and spawn. The reef will create an entirely new
ecosystem which will continue to benefit the
environment and the economy for many decades into

In search of the Himmarshee's springs
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News columnist
"Look down into the river."
"Well, because there are places in this river that no
one has ever found the bottom to."
It was 1943 and I was four years old. My mother
and I were standing in the middle of the Federal
Highway bridge, a bridge which exists today only in
my mind. They replaced it with a tunnel in 1960. We
were looking down into New River, which legend
says translates into Himmarshee in an ancient Indian
tongue and what hopeless romantics like me call the
river to this day.
On those days my mother and I lived in a little
boarding house run by the Dexter and Hamilton
family, located just east of where the Broward County
Courthouse sits today on Southeast Sixth Street. The
Courthouse was there then but it was much smaller,
*and had sort of a country aura about it, an aura long
since swallowed up by the faster moving New
Her words about New River and her eerie tale that
the river might have places in it where no one had ever
found a bottom to it, occurred during one of those trips
across that old.bridge.
In those same childhood days she also told me the
-Indian legend about the night New River was borm.
She said that the Indians were awakened by a loud clap
of thunder. On rising in the morning, they discovered
the fresh water spring that they had camped by the
night before had turned into a river. The ground had
collapsed around the spring; instead of a spring, now
there was a river. Not to complicate things, legend
says, they decided to name the river Himmarshee.
My mother's words came back to me recently
when I went to a presentation by Bill Raymond, a
marine geologist, who announced his intentions to
Sdredge at-14 specific places along New River, from
Tarpon Bend upriver to the north fork of New River.
Always intrigued by New River and its geologic
beginnings, Raymond has learned that deep. water
-springs at one time probably existed in the river.-
Patiently explaining geologic history of Florida,
Raymond advised that Florida is made up mostly of
limestone, with some silica sand that had come down
from Georgia in eons past. Limestone is stable in
seawater, but he thinks during the last great Ice Age
Florida was about 450 feet out of the ocean. Exposed
now to rainwater, which had an acidic affect on the
limestone, the limestone became vulnerable to being
dissolved. With the rainwater percolating through the
limestone, it easily began to eat holes into the base of
ancient Florida, sitting there exposed.

Spring sites (a) superimposed upon a circa 1870 map of the New River system.
With New River Geology 101 out of the way,
Raymond explained that he obtained some maps from
Henry Talton, a research engineer for the City of Fort
Lauderdale. These maps were made in 1972. The
maps show radical changes in the depth of New River
at different places which could only be explained one
way: underground springs springs that connect to
tunnels which connect to caverns.
Raymond also said that the maps show the average
depth along New River, from Tarpon Bend westward
to the Performing Arts Center, to be about 15 feet with
those unexplained drops to 35 feet. That depth is
different from the average depth of the river between
Tarpon Bend eastward to Bahia Mar, which averages
11 feet. This doesn't compute in an average river, said
Raymond. Rivers don't often get deeper the further
inland you go, rivers get shallower. In New River this
is not the case. In a normal river the average depth
would be around 10 feet, no sudden drops.
The differences in depth along the river show
where the springs once were. The springs have been
covered up by sediment. At one time, the springs were
reported to be as much as 90 to 200 feet deep, which,
to say the least, is extremely deep for a river. There are
also stories from older settlers that tell of whirlpools
along the river. Possibly, explained Raymond, the
whirlpools were observed during the dry season when
there was a lack of fresh water being pushed seaward.
If a diver would have been lowered over one of
those springs, Raymond thinks the diver could have
gone about 250 feet; and could, he thinks, eventually
come out of the tunnels and caverns in the Gulf
Stream. That theory also might explain my mother's
old Indian tale about the river going down forever.
One: reason the springs might have been covered
up was the draining of the Everglades which began

after the turn of the century when man decided, during
one of his many spells of madness, to redo nature and
drain the Everglades in an effort to gain rich farmland.
With the Everglades being drained, Raymond said
those springs along the river would no longer be
artesian wells pushing the water up. The Everglades
holds much of the fresh rainwater which comes from
the middle of the state. Underneath the Everglades and
Lake Okeechobee is a huge pocket of fresh water called
the Biscayne Aquifer which incidentally is where
south Florida gets its fresh water. The Biscayne
Aquifer sits on top of a deeper salt water aquifer which
lies beneath it. With the Everglades drained, there
would be a decided drop in freshwater pressure
coming from the Biscayne Aquifer to the springs along
the river. No more pressure pushing fresh water out of
'the springs would easily allow sediment to fall into the
springs and begin to cover them up.
That means, Raymond said, that New River was at
one time as clean and clear as Wakulla Springs is now.
That geologic fact has always intrigued him. Raymond
explained that his number one objective is to find out
what is really down there in New River and to
document it. The second thing is to consider the
feasibility of opening up one of those springs. He
thinks that even now with the Everglades being to
some extent drained off, if a lot of rain fell into the
Everglades, and if he could dredge one of those
springs clean, fresh water might once again come out
of the springs during the rainy season.
Is man capable of undoing some of the stupidity
committed by his forefathers in the past? Raymond
thinks so. The affect of opening up the springs could
only make the river clearer, and cleaner. With the
springs uncovered and open clean saltwater would

HIMMARSHEE, FROM page 26
come up from the springs during the dry season, when
there is a lack of fresh water pressure from the
Basically it means that during the dry season a tidal
flow from those deep interconnecting tunnels thatgo
out to the edge of the continental shelf would resume.
The thought of fresh, clear water coming down New
River in this day and age is a teasing possibility to a
marine geologist like Bill Raymond.
The reality of today is that this noble purpose will
take money hopefully to come from private and
concerned Floridians.-If enough private citizens get
involved financially, there would be a good chance for
a grant, Raymond feels.
For a start, he is looking for $14,000. This money
would cover the cost of opening and documenting the
14 locations along the river where he feels springs
once were; the locations he had discovered through the
old city maps.
The area around the North Fork of New River,
incidentally, is the alleged location of the original fort
built by Major William Lauderdale in 1838 in the
middle of the Second Seminole Indian War. That
possibility brought interest from a woman who hosted
Raymond's presentation, Gypsy Graves, an
archaeologist and the museum director for the Broward
County Archaeological Society. Her interest intensified
when her archaeological group did some excavation
along New River where the Broward County
Performing Arts Center is now. During this dig they
uncovered an Indian site and found relics from the
ancient Tequesta Indians who predated the Seminole
Indian presence in Fort Lauderdale.
Seminoles began to migrate here at the beginning
of the 19th Century, after being pushed southward by
the white man. They had come from their native homes
in Georgia where they were part of different Creek
Indian tribes. By the time the Seminoles came to this
part of Florida the Tequestas were gone.
In her research, Graves advises that there is still
debate about where the original white settlers, Charles
and Frankee Lewis, had their plantation. Also she
raises a question as to the original location of the first
Fort Lauderdale, built by Major William Lauderdale in
1838. The fort's location has never been found to the
satisfaction of archaeologist Graves, who thinks this
might be because the original location of New River
might have been different. Thus, Raymond's talk of
Marine archaeological council hosts noted oceanographer
Willard Bascom, an engineer turned
oceanographer, writer and noted authority on the
bottom of the sea, will give a presentation on April 3rd
at the 110 Tower in downtown Fort Lauderdale,, at
Mr. Bascom will talk on searching for ancient
shipwrecks in the Black Sea and the Turkish Straits.
Originally an engineer, Bascom switched interests
and became an oceanographer. He has written
extensively on the ocean. His book, A Hole In The
Bottom of the Sea deals with drilling'through the earths
crusts from the deep bottom of the ocean, where the
crust is the thinnest.
-Bill Raymond, marine geologist and president of
Marine Archaeological Council, says that Bascom was
Sa researcher at Scripts Institute of Oceanography, in
LaJolla, California. Raymond notes a little known fact
concerning Bascom is that he measured the waves

said Raymond, helped him in his thesis as he studied
to become a marine geologist
The Broward County Marine Archaeological
Council in the past has presented shipwreck
sysmposiums, with the late Peter Throckmorton,
considered by many to be the father of marine
archaeology. The symposiums drew interested amateur
archaeologists and SCUBA divers from.all over the
world, and explored the history of early shipwrecks
off Broward County, especially the shipwreck of the
Gil Bias. The Gil Bias foundered and came ashore
during a storm in 1835. A lot of Broward's history
emanates from that incident.

Old maps show a slough area around East
Broward Boulevard downtown which today does not
exist. Graves thinks uncovering the springs and how
they are laid out might help in defining where New
River might have been at one time. This could change
opinions as to where the original Fort Lauderdale
might have been, and where the Lewis' plantation was.
This new information could give Graves and her
dedicated followers different places to search for our
Geology and archaeology. Bill Raymond and
Gypsy Graves are two people of science who would
like to know what was here before the white man came
to change Florida forever.
