Local dive show aims for broader appeal
By BRYAN BROOKS
Waterfront News columnist
MIAMI After a few years of being known as a
diver's flea-market, Ocean Expo International in Miami is
changing its format. Gone will be any cash-and-carry sales
of scuba life-support equipment from this year's show.
Instead, Ocean Expo International will expand into a multi-
faceted exposition, exploring the whole spectrum of the
diving industry, including clinics on photography and
oxygen first aid.
Booths manned by dive-resort operators from the
Caribbean Islands and the Florida Keys, along with the
display of this year's newest, hi-tech scuba equipment, will
be some of the major draws for area divers in this year's
Susan Payette, Ocean Expo International's executive
director, says the exposition will resemble a trade show,
with the public also being invited. Pressure last year from
the local, dive-shops, backed up by the scuba-equipment
manufacturers, has forced Ocean Expo International to get
out of the flea-market aspect of their show, organizers say.
In years past, the diving public could come to the show
and be able to buy scuba life-support equipment over the
counter. Payette said this type of flea-market format
apparently was hurting the local dive-shop retailers. Many
South Florida dive-shops discovered their students were
flocking to Ocean Expo International each year to buy
scuba equipment at discount prices.
The dive-shops complained to Payette, contending that
the selling of life-support equipment at the show was not
only hurting their retail business, but endangering their
students, as no type of scuba training was going along with
the sale of the equipment. Retailers complained to their
scuba-equipment manufacturers, who agreed with them.
Both groups began to apply pressure by withdrawing their
support from the exposition; thus the change in formats.
As in the past, besides the many booths on the
convention floor, there will be a film festival on Saturday
evening, March 20th. This year's theme is on sharks, with
about 15 booths featuring them. Payette said about 400
square feet in the mall area of the Radisson Centre will be
manned by Pflueger Taxidermy, showing some of their

exhibits of the feared and respected underwater predator. In
keeping with this year's theme, a shark cage will also be on
Payette emphasized that the public will have still be
able to purchase T-shirts, dive travel, jewelry, boats,
compressors, video tapes, art works, photos, posters, plus
non life-support items such as wet and dry suits.
There will be exhibits of marine art and underwater
photographs, and booths manned by different environmental
groups. With the price of admission, the public will be
able to attend any of the exposition's mini-theatres located
upstairs from the floor of the exposition. These mini-
theatres will have underwater motion picture and slide
shows going on during the exposition.
Concerning the film festival on Saturday night, Payette
said that underwater photographer Doug Perrine will present
an audio-visual slide show on sharks,
Local instructors will give an underwater scuba-intro to
wanna-be divers at the pool, located by the hotel at the
Radisson Centre. Dive instructors will also give refresher
courses for divers who have been too dry for too long a
period of time, in the upstairs classrooms.
Because of the changed format, Payette said, the diving
equipment manufacturers and the South Florida dive-shop
retailers are returning their support to the exposition.
Bob Ledbetter, a manufacturers representative for
Sherwood, Ikelite and Wenoka, advised that all three of
those companies have taken booth space at this year's
show. He said that the show, in the past, had pretty much
become a flea market. He admits that the flea-market
format may have benefitted the consumers in some ways,
in the short run, but because many of the retailers selling
life-support equipment at the show were coming in from
other areas, they weren't going tc be around for the
consumer/diver later when they needed training or help.
The question is: Will the diver/consumer still be
interested in Ocean Expo without being able to buy
discount scuba gear? Will the format change, demanded by
the retailer and their suppliers, have taken away the reason
most divers attend such expositions? Payette is gambling
that by having those suppliers and retail shops return to
Ocean Expo, showing divers the newest in dive technology,
along with the show's shark theme, film festival and
numerous, interesting clinics will bring the local diver in.
The show's future is literally banking on it.
This year's Ocean Expo International will be held from
March 19th through March 21st, at the Radisson Centre,
777 NW 72nd Avenue, in Miami. Free parking will be
provided. Divers interested in information concerning the
show, or it's clinics, can call 305-891-6095.
'Shark Doc' to be
honored at dive show
Special to the Waterfront News
Dr. Samuel H. Gruber, known to some as 'Shark Doc'
or 'Sonny', will receive the Ocean Expo '93 International
Lifetime Achievement Award in March. Dr. Gruber is
known world-wide for over 30 years of studying sharks.
This award was given for his dedicated lifetime scientific
studies of elasmobranch (sharks) fishes which has and will
continue to further mankind's understanding and
appreciation of our undersea world. He is a marine science
professor at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School
and has many honors for his professional activities.
Various publications and articles have been written and co-
authored by the doctor. With his research and dedication he
may very well save the sharks from mankind.

'Shark Doc' at 1993 Ocean Expo dive show in Miami
SHARK, FROM page 1
In 1952, Gruber had his first experience with SCUBA
diving and often snorkeled right off the beach, finding sand
dollars, seeing sharks and schools of mullet in crystal clear
water. This was the year he won the first place springboard
diving championship in the '52 Jr. Olympics. His coach,
Carlos Fernandez was the person that 'explained' to him
how to dive and got them the SCUBA equipment from Ma

Kline's Dive Shop (Jordan Kline's mother). The regulators
of that time, single stage-double hose, would sometimes
explode at about an 80 foot depth, leaving one sucking
2000 psi of air directly into their lungs while struggling to
the surface. 'Divers' of that day often practiced free ascents
to prepare themselves for this 'emergency.'
Gruber studied ballet but had to make a career decision:
whether to study ballet or to be a jet pilot!!! He did learn to
fly, but his parents wanted him to be a doctor. At Emory
University while taking pre-med in '58, he studied to be a
'real doctor, not a shark doctor.' Weekends found Gruber
diving and spearfishing at Fowey Rocks from The Blue
Goose, a 100' steel sailing luxury yacht. The yacht was
once owned by Herman Goering, Hitler's #2 man and head
of the German Luftwaffe before being seized by the Allies.
In Miami it was used as a dive boat holding 15 to 20 divers
(for a fee of $7.00 for 2 days and 1 night). That summer
while spearfishing, the stimuli in the water (blood and the
sounds), enticed a huge hammerhead into the area where he
was spearfishing. Gruber was impressed but the shark
"scared the hell out of him" and he "thought he was dead."
The shark doc cowered down into the reef structure until the
sh..sh..sh..shark went away. Since he wasn't killed, Gruber
decided to study sharks; that was when he got hooked!
AlTIf--EN11IIO 191VIlIElUS :!
YACUT HAVEN .
PARK AND MARINA
His research from 1960-76 involved anatomy,
physiology and psychophysics of the visual system of the
lemon shark characterizing basic functions of the shark eye
and developing unique training techniques to communicate
with the sharks. Asking them simple questions and training
them to answer by 'classical conditioning,' they learned
faster than cats or rabbits!
Dr. Gruber has been happily married since 1969 and
has two daughters. Currently you may find him at his
home in Miami, the University of Miami or his research
facility in Bimini. where he does field work with students.
Gruber's latest love is the study of shark behavior.
His studies in the Florida Keys showed the number of
sharks caught and tagged were dropping, in 1987 110
sharks were caught, in 1988 40 sharks, and in 1989 only 7
were captured!! Due to the sharks 'disappearing,' the study
had to be canceled.
Meanwhile the slaughter for meat and for sport goes
on. Shark fins are cut off and the dying shark is thrown
back into the water. They are over-exploited in many ways
- commercial shark fisheries, sportfishing and more.
Gruber feels he owes the sharks something as they are
his life, his career and he speaks loudly for them. Please

There are lots of problems on my boat that I just
bought. Twin diesels that can't get RPM's, filters that are
loaded with dirt, rust and water (changed them twice so far).
Boat is an '89 but was documented in '90. Boat looks like

would like to hear from you.
What you definitely have is a fuel and tank problem. I
would get someone to pump out all fuel from your tanks.
Chances are you got a bad batch of fuel or you have tanks
that are in bad condition. You can try an outfit that filters
and checks your fuel and cleans your tanks. I don't know if
your tanks are fiberglass or metal or aluminum. Your
RPM's will increase and your engine will run better with
clean fuel and a clean flow through the filters.

Question-I have a speed indicator on my skiff that does
not register at all. The unit on the stern transom looks like
it's worn and stiff. I hate to put a new one on unless I need
one is there any way I can check the unit without
Hard to reach it without lifting boat or getting in the
water. Any suggestions?
Answer-If you can disconnect your rubber hose that
leads into this unit, you can disconnect the dash indicator
and blow through the line. If line is clogged you have to
replace hose. If line is free and clear you can connect back
to dash unit and suck to see if dash indicator is not frozen
or rusted stiff.
You can check through a process of elimination what
is at fault. If it is your transom unit that will have to be
replaced or perhaps cleaned out.
Question-I have a deep pounding every time I advance
and retard my throttle. Sounds like a main bearing to me
and my buddies who have listened to it. I don't hear it at all
under power or speed, only at idle or advance, so would like
your opinion on what else it could be.
Hate to get involved with something I may not need.
Answer-In my book "Ask Big Al" I have described what
you are experiencing. Lift your motor hatch and watch your
engine as you advance and retard the throttle. Listen for the
thump; nine times out of ten it is a worn or broken motor
support and the engine will lift and drop as the torque or
speed increases or decreases. That will cause that pound you
hear. Worn bearings are usually heard at all speeds. Replace
supports needed and check all.

Coconut Grove marine facility
improvements in the doldrums
By HANK JONES
waterfront News Writer
MIAMI Boaters should not look to the City of
Miami for improved marine facilities in Coconut Grove
until after a March 16 commission meeting, at the earliest.
There is a two-pronged threat to Metro's zoning
policies as well as to the Grove after more than 100,000
Dade voters signed a petition backing two reforms.
The first plan would remove commission jurisdiction
over zoning matters. Zoning would fall to eight boards
would decide where office buildings, malls, apartment
buildings and marine facilities like marinas would go.
The second aspect of the plan would make it easier for
communities within Dade to leave cities of which they are
a part and declare their independence.
Key Biscayne residents seceded and formed a city in
Currently, a strong segment of Coconut Grove's
population wants independence from Miami. Grove
residents believe themselves neglected when they see few of
the tax dollars collected from the affluent community
returned to their streets.
The bottom line is that the old Merrill Stephens
boatyard is in the Grove, along with a major stretch of
waterfront, tax rich property and even Miami's City Hall,
located in the old Pan Am building.
Such moves have failed in the past, opposed for the
most part by Dade's powerful builders and developers.
The tide turned however, when a Coconut Grove effort
to force consideration of their plan fell short of the number
of signatures required when Hnuricane Andrew struck.
Regrouping, the Grove contingent joined forces with
backers of the plan for local control of zoning. The united
cause gained momentum when activists showed
commission members a chart showing how many
signatures were collected from each of the nine Metro
The successful petition assured voters the issue would
be on the ballot for the next statewide election in 1994.
But they didn't want to wait, and to get on an earlier ballot,
March 16, they needed support from six commissioners.
Only Mayor Steve Clark, not a'candidate f6r reelection,
voted against the petition measure.
Cesar Odio, Miami city manager, has said that the
"economic impact on the city would be incredible should
the Coconut Grove secession move succeed."

Coast Guard pulls anchor in state jurisdiction fight
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
waterfront News writer
STUART Boaters got the wind knocked out of their
sails as the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) declared that states
do have the authority to enact anchorage regulations as long
as they are not in conflict with Federal Law.
Coast Guard representatives in February explained their
legal review of the jurisdiction issues at the Concerned
Boaters National Water Rights Conference held here.
Commander Wayne Raabe of the USCG in
Washington, D.C., stated, "The most important thing
people have to realize is that the waters at issue here extend
from the shoreline out to three miles, and that generally
speaking, we have concurrent jurisdiction with the states
over that area."
According to constitutional law, the states, through
their inherent police powers, have concurrent authority with
the Federal government over navigable waters of the United
States within their respective borders "to prescribe, within
limits of the state and federal constitutions, reasonable
regulations necessary to preserve the public order, health,
safety and morals."
Miami attorney Howard Sutter blasted Coast Guard
representatives at the boating conference, stating, "This
ruling conveys to the states the appearance that they can act
without impunity, as no one from the Federal government
will try and stop them."
David Pfautz, treasurer of the Anchorage Defense
League of Fort Myers Beach, was one of many boaters who
expressed their dissatisfaction with the Coast Guard's
"Counties in Florida have had plans put on hold while
waiting for the Coast Guard's announcement, and now that

the policy is out it gives all the various state and local
governments free reign," Pfautz said. "I think we're going
to see a rash of ordinances as a result."
Pfautz added that the ruling will empower agencies
such as the Florida Department of Natural Resources
(DNR) to regulate all aspects of the waterways including
anchoring and liveaboards.
"Rumor has it that the DNR plans to zone the waters
into six categories for designated uses," Pfautz declared.
"What I've heard is that DNR is also going to encourage
transient usage of anchorages and not fill them up with
vessels so that there will always be revolving boating
populations I don't know if that will force people off their
boats and into marinas or whether people will have to pay
for the privilege of anchoring."
Dr. Thomas Kitsos, a senior policy analyst with the
U.S. House Committee on Merchant Marine and Fisheries,
stated, "The legal review of the Coast Guard policy is
sound if you want to change a law, you're going to have
to deal with state and local governments, or you're going to
have to get it done through Congress."
The Water Rights Conference keynote speaker, Captain
Leo Black of Coast Guard headquarters in Washington,
D.C. noted that boaters do have incidental right to anchor
on the waterways, but not necessarily in every location.
Black also stressed that boaters do have anchoring rights
and if there isn't and anchoring spot in a certain location
then that issue needs to be addressed.
Reed Haslam, a Stuart liveaboard for 20 years, stated
that the whole anchoring and waterway usage issue revolves

Palm Beach breakwater reef
installation to resume despite problems
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
TOWN OF PALM BEACH Despite extensive
settling caused by Hurricane Andrew and other factors, the
Florida Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has agreed
to allow the Town of Palm Beach and its contractor to
continue to install the rest of a 4.000-foot artificial reef off
The artificial reef was designed as an experiment to see
if it could effectively serve as a breakwater to prevent any
further erosion of the town's almost nonexistent beach and
However, according to surveys conducted by the
engineering firm that is installing the artificial reef, the
beachfront in the project area has increased to a 60-foot
width and up to six feet high on the seawall.
Those initial results have some officials of other
coastal towns interested in additional reef projects which
would serve as an alternative to beach renourishment
projects which are presently conducted mainly by dredging
of offshore sand deposits or by sand transfer plants.
DNR's Division of Beaches and Shores director Kirby
Green had halted the installation of the artificial reef units
last August because the reef, which was only supposed to
settle a maximum of six inches, has settled as much as
three feet in some places (the reef is only six feet high).
DNR agreed to remove the stop order when it was decided
that there weren't any solid alternatives to prevent further
settling, and that the experiment could proceed by
redesigning the test and monitoring criteria that were
developed for the project.
Peter Elwell, an official with the Town of Palm Beach,
stated, "DNR accepted the fact that the project could move
forward, and that there is some evidence that there is sand
accretion within the project area of the reef which indicates
that the reef is having a positive impact on the shoreline."
Paden Woodruff, a senior engineer with DNR's Bureau
of Coastal Engineering and Regulation, noted that it would
be premature to declare the reef a success or failure, and
that because the reef is an experimental project, the
Department is revising its monitoring program to
compensate for the additional settling of the reef. The reef
is scheduled to be monitored for three years following the
completion of its installation.
Woodruff added, "This is different from other artificial
reefs in that it has been deposited much closer to shore; it's
really a submerged breakwater which is limited in terms of
the habitat that will colonize it."
Beth Mitchell, director of operations with American
Coastal Engineering, the company in charge of designing
and installing the artificial reef, stated that the company
will resume installation of the rest of the 330-piece
concrete and steel reef as soon as weather permits. At
present, only 57 of the 330 interlocking reef pieces have
been installed, although 242 of the units have already been
dropped in the water.
Mitchell said the reef has been designed for several
purposes: to decrease wave energy and beach erosion, to
encourage the growth of habitat and eventually a more
natural reef, and to encourage sand accretion on the beach
and prevent sand loss by serving as a buffer.
Mitchell noted that the reef is already producing some
amazing results, especially the increase in beach width.
"Considering the amount of erosion in the county over
the last few months, it's amazing that we've had any
accretion at all," Mitchell said.
Tourism board approves use of beach fund for stadium project
By CRAIG LUSTGARTEN
Waterfront News writer
WEST PALM BEACH Palm Beach County
environmental officials are worried that the Tourist
Development Council (TDC) may be jeopardizing beach
renourishment funds after it passed a resolution to use
$350,000 of bed tax money from designated beach funds for
an athletic stadium at Dwyer High School in North Palm
The TDC is hoping that an expanded stadium will
attract state and local amateur events to the county.
The TDC, which is an advisory board to Palm Beach
County, allocates 50 percent of the third cent collected from
hotel bed taxes towards each renourishment.
Charles Lehmann, TDC executive director, stated, "The
TDC has gotten frustrated with the lack of projects
completed by the county using beach renourishment funds."
Lehmann added that he would like to see the funds used
for other projects if not for beach renourishment, and may

The Palm Beach Countywide Beaches and Shores
Council, sensing a shift in the attitude of the TDC, has
drafted a resolution to the County Board of Commissioners
asking them to reaffirm their commitment to funding for
preservation of the county's beaches and to continue to
recognize their obligation to have a fair and stable long-
term tax base for such projects.
John Walker, chairman of the Beaches and Shores
Council, stated, "We drafted this resolution as a pre-emptive
strike in asking the County Commission to commit
themselves to maintain beach funding."
County beach renourishment funds are used to obtain
matching state and federal monies which run into the
millions of dollars in order to do beach restoration projects.
State to review DNR coastal
WEST PALM BEACH After area residents and
coastal property owners complained that the proposed new
coastal construction lines for Palm Beach County were too
stringent, the Florida Department of Natural Resources has
agreed to ask the state for money to review its own erosion
In some cases the coastal construction control line
would move landward some 200 feet under proposed
regulations, which DNR says would ensure that buildings
could withstand the impacts of severe storms.

Canal herbicide spraying blamed
for waterfront resident's illness
Special to the Waterfront News
FT PIERCE Viet Nam War veteran George Bokes
reports that he became ill following spraying of 2-4D and
Diquat in the C-24 Canal behind his house. The spray
drifted in the air through his windows. Bokes, a New York
City cop for 10 years before he moved to Ft. Pierce, has
suffered from health problems since he served as a ranger in
Viet Nam where he was exposed to Agent Orange and other
herbicides, including 2-4D.
According to Senior Environmental Biologist Mike
Bodle of the South Florida Water Management District, 2-
4D and Diquat are regularly sprayed by District applicators
in the C-24 Canal and other Florida waterways to control

law, the one simple rule is that the label is the law."
In 1992, Environmental Water Management of Davie
was prosecuted and fined $450,000 for illegally spraying
Direx in five different lakes in Broward County from 1990-
92. Direx is prohibited by the EPA for use in water. "We

20 Waterfront News March 1993 NAUTICAL DINING
Outback serves up tasty steaks
in crowded setti
By JENNIFER HEIT-ZIEGLER
Waterfront News reviewer
It's a warning that's worth a second thought: dinner at
the Outback Steakhouse means a long, long wait unless
you're willing to dine with the early birds.
Being briefed beforehand, we deliberately picked
superbowl Sunday for our first visit, a day when loyal
viewers were more likely to crave subs and pizza rather
than steaks and baked potatoes.
Although we're talking about a chain with 12 south
Florida locations, reports of juicy steaks ranking way
above customary chain fare lured us to the Fort
Lauderdale location on North Federal Highway.
What we found is a decor that is barbecue casual,
with dark wood floors and thick laminated wood tables.
Although the restaurant is supposed to follow an
"Australian theme, this is merely a gimmick played out
ivia a few Aussie slogans highlighting menu items.
The Outback is the brainchild of Tampa-based Bob
Basham and Chris Sullivan, who spent years interning
at restaurant giants Steak and Ale and Bennigans before
going out on their own five years ago.
A casual style demands food that is simple and to
the point. Beef is the star of this show and there's
several steaks to prove it. Included among the selections
are a 12-ounce sirloin, a 20-ounce porterhouse and a 14-
ounce New York strip steak priced from $11.45 to
There's also "Jackeroo chops," pork chops with
cinnamon apples, grilled chicken breast wrapped with
bacon, mushrooms, Monterey jack and Cheddar cheeses,
ribs grilled on the "Barbie," shrimp saute over
fettuccine and a grilled fish of the day, ranging from
$8.95 to $10.95.
All meats, seafood and poultry come coated with a
special peppery seasoning used in all Outback
restaurants, management reported. However, effort is
made to honor special requests.
Steak dominates the menu and comes with a house
or Caesar salad, the latter loaded with croutons and
grated cheese and also accompanied by a loaf of brown
bread and a choice of potato.
For an appetizer we bypassed the famous
"bloomin" onion in favor of the grilled shrimp on the
"Barbie" ($5.95). Large, delicious shrimp brushed with
butter were served on top of garlic brown bread and a
rich creamy sauce on the side. It's a dish worthy of
main entree billing.
Almost equally good, the steaks were perfectly
broiled, peppery and tender even though one was ordered
A side order of sauteed mushrooms ($2.50) were
obviously fresh and tasty and also worth repeating. And
a fellow dinner praised the "bloomin" onion ($4.95), a
large bulb lightly breaded and deep fried.
We found our waiter to be knowledgeable providing
prompt and attentive service.
With all this food, dessert was out of the question, but
the menu lists an ice cream sundae with coconut and
chocolate sauce, New York style cheesecake and a brownie

Since the start of our Caribbean cruise some months

collection thanks to the suggestions of others. Sharing
dinners with cruising buddies can lead to the most exciting
This hot Thai dish is from Jill and Phil, fellow boaters
sailing aboard their 47-foot Vagabond, Having a Good
Time. We all cooked the dish together while moored here
in Tortola, enjoying a wonderful meal under the stars.
The beauty of this recipe is that it can be customized
to suit your taste. Add your choice of vegetables. Serve it
on top of any type pasta you happen to have on hand. If
peppers is a preferred vegetable, try deviating from the
traditional green in favor of yellow or red Make it your
For dessert we served light and tangy Lemon Cream
Puffs. If you don't care to spend the time making the puffs,
the lemon cream filling would be wonderful in hollowed
out lemons or wine glasses, served plain or topped with
your choice of berries. We hope you'll agree.
Thai Chicken with Coconut

cut into bite-size pieces
.1 large onion sliced

A host of accommodations await Keys visitors
By HANK JONES
Special to the Waterfront News
FLORIDA KEYS America's favorite "Caribbean
Islands" offer world-class fishing waters, unsurpassed
diving, superb cruising and fascinating bird-watching with
an inviting port never too far over the horizon.
With accommodations for all budgets, the Keys
become accessible and pleasurable beyond imagination to
visitors and residents.
A boater can enjoy such shore establishments as
historic La Concha, Casa Marina, the Reach, Pier House,
Cheeca Lodge, Hawks Key Resort, Plantation Yacht
Harbor, Holiday Isle Resort, Faro Blanco, The Galleon and
a host of others. There also are private upscale yacht clubs
such as Ocean Reef.
At the other end of the budget scale are marinas and
parks with modestly-prici'd camp sites and almost endless
protected anchorages where cruising and local boaters swing
on the hook for days, weeks, even months and years. It's
usually but a short shopping trip by dinghy to find a first-
rate supermarket along the highway.
This is one remaining marine wonderland where getting
there continues to be half the fun.
On the east coast go offshore all the way in the
Atlantic, or take an inside passage via Florida Bay. Another
alternative is the Okeechobee Waterway linking Stuart and
Fort Myers and along Florida's west coast.
For those who tire of lazy days, there's a fishing
tournament almost every week, just as there are boat races
for power and sail.
Fortunately, there are as many attractions for trailer
boat enthusiasts as for yachtsmen, with rental and charter
opportunities, including personal water craft, day cruising
and sightseeing trips.
Florida's Keys begin roughly at the Dade-Monroe
county line, including all of Key Largo, and stretch south
to within 90 miles of Cuba, curving gently west to Key
West, 156 miles from Miami by road. The westernmost
Keys, the Tortugas and Fort Jefferson, have no land ties to
the mainland and are accessible only by boat or amphibious
Along U.S. 1, linking Miami and Key West, references
are given as "oceanside" or "bayside" and distances are a
matter of mile markers, Miami being zero and Key West
156 so one might be directed to drive from Mile Marker
80 to Mile Marker 102 bayside to find a specific address.
Miami to Key Largo is 58 miles with Card Sound a longer
Traffic among the Keys was by boat until 1912, when
the railroad arrived. Only after a 1935 hurricane washed the
rails away was the road built. There are 42 bridges, where
currents can be challenging and shoaling is a fact of life, as
it is through all of the Keys. Sand Key Light, for
example, can be anchored in sand above sea level or with
legs extending below water, depending on sand buildup or
It follows that a depthfinder, or at least a lead line can
be a invaluable navigating tool.
Good references for cruising boaters are the Inland
Waterway Guide Southern Edition and/or Frank Papy's
Cruising Guide to the Florida Keys. Most marinas
monitor channel 16 and can provide some assistance.
Books, films and television have found the islands a
rich resource, offering beauty, recreation and recreational
opportunities. Currently, a TV series offers Key West as
On any day a boat offshore is likely to encounter
refugees from Cuba or Haitians fleeing their island home.
History and adventure are day-to-day events here, not
inemories locked away in a musty library. Fishing history
is made almost month-to-month as new world records are
Because the Keys also are habitat for countless birds,
bird watchers are likely to be almost as numerous as
anglers, scanning sky and shoreline for endangered roseate
spoonbills, great white herons, bald eagles, kites and more
common gulls, pelicans, ospreys and others. Ospreys
frequently build their nests atop utility poles close to the
road, and alert watchers can see fledglings being fed.
Success and popularity have brought problems along
with profits to Keys residents. Old timers are designated
Conchs. Older generations have known the prosperity of
Key West being designated the wealthiest city per capital in
the United States during the 1850s, and one of the poorest
during the depression of the 1930s, when many residents
subsisted on a diet of grits, grunts and gravy. Through
boom and bust Conchs traditionally have extended warm
Pirates roamed here and offshore waters are the final
resting place of uncounted ships, including Spanish
galleons carrying gold and others precious cargoes.
There are a dozen state and county parks, including the
most accessible to the mainland, John Pennekamp Coral
Reef State Park, Key Largo worth an introductory stop for
any visitor. There are boats for rent, including canoes, dive
boats, and glass bottom boats to allow visitors to explore
the glories of the reefs and the underwater world. In
addition to scuba diving, snorkeling trips can be enjoyed by
Other parks are equally inviting. Much of the
surrounding waters are protected as national marine
sanctuaries not always pleasing to local commercial
fisherman. There are wildlife sanctuaries on shore as well,
one of them protecting the herd of tiny key deer.
Artists and authors were among early discoverers of
Key West and Audobon House is a landmark, while
Hemingway House is a museum open to the public.
Tennessee Williams also was a frequent resident. President
Harry Truman established a Little White House on the
.grounds of the Key West Naval Station.
For vacationers, the Conch Train tour of Key West is a
long-time favorite. There is an abbreviated trolley tour as
well both worthwhile in time and money.
Throughout the Keys local chambers of commerce are
good sources of information, and a starting point for
visitors. There are chambers in Key Largo, Islamorada,
Layton, Key Colony Beach, Greater Marathon, Lower Keys
(Big Pine Key), and Key West. By road or sea, any visitor
is well advised to obtain a shoreside road map soon after
arrival at Key Largo.

Shaw files luxury tax appeal
By KITTY McGOWAN
Special to the Waterfront News
FORT LAUDERDALE In mid-January, local
Congressman E. Clay Shaw filed within 12 minutes of the
first day of the 103rd Congress, legislation in the House of
Representatives to repeal the Federal luxury tax on vessels.
Shaw said, "The marine industry is the lifeblood of
South Florida and needs to have lost jobs restored for the
benefit of our South Florida economy."
Shaw originally filed HR 951 directly following the
completion of the Gulf War. This bill was added to HR 11
and came with a pen stroke of success before being vetoed
by President Bush the day following his election loss.
Marine Industries Association of South Florida
President, Rick Alien commented, "It is hoped with a
Democrat controlled Congress as well as President
Clinton's campaign issues of jobs and the economy, that

with the flip

Call Emil at
the luxury tax repeal bill will have smoother sailing
through the political process."
"Second time is the charm," Shaw quipped.

Jan. 21 leading angler John Morrell to eight sailfish catch-
and-releases to win the Fourth Annual presidential Sailfish
Tournament in the Keys.
It was the third consecutive year that Nielsen and
Morrell, a commercial airline pilot who lives in
Islamorada, placed third or better in the event.
The contest marked another success story for Nielsen
during the 1992-93 Keys sailfish tournament circuit. In
November, he guided anglers aboard his boat How 'Bout It
to victory at the Key Largo Sailfish Showdown. In
December, he was lauded as high-point captain at the
coveted Florida Keys Sailfish Gold Cup Competition, a
series of three competitions that included the Showdown.
"We've learned, during the past five years, to be in the
right place at the right time with certain bait
combinations," said the 40-year-old Nielsen. "But the real
reason for our success is that we have a hookup average of
around 80 percent."

30 Waterfront News March 1993 REAL ESTATE
Waterfront real estate demand greater than supply
By HANK JONES
waterfront News writer
FORT LAUDERDALE Property values are created
and sustained by "location, location, location," say real
estate experts, but when the location is watered down the
value goes up.
"It's trite, because for a quarter-century now, we've
been telling people no more waterfront is being created, and
that's true," said Robert P. Gargano, a Fort Lauderdale real
estate broker and waterfront specialist.
Waterfront property is almost as good as gold.
Reporting on Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, for
example, Charles Kimball wrote in The Broward Review
that resales of many foreclosed condominium units are
reported below cost, but losses tend to be at suburban
locations, "At buildings fronting on the Intracoastal
Waterway or the ocean, demand is greater than supply."
By rough rule of thumb, discounting other variables,
Realtors can almost forecast a step-by-step progression of
the influence water will have on a given property:
Given a land-locked lot with a single family home,
even in view of a lake in the distance would bring a five per
cent premium on the sales price. Move the house and lot
directly on a pond, and the price increases by as much as 15
Even a drainage waterway might bring a 15 percent
premium or more depending on location, access to
the water with a boat, distance from neighbors, and fishing
"On Las Olas, for example, a $350,000 home on a 75-
or 80-foot lot, might carry a 40- to 50-percent premium
purely by reason of the waterfront and boating potential,"
"Theoretically, take a $200,000 landlocked home in
Coral Ridge, move it to waterfront and the price could be
$400,000," speculated Gargano.
The home's buyer appeal, of course, also revolves
around aesthetics, investment involved and potential, and
full property utilization.
"With the underlying value of the land, some lots have
become worth more than the houses built on them. In
prime South Florida waterfront lots most of the houses
were built in the 50s or early 60s and the structures are
not what someone expects for $500,000," Gargano said.
"As a result, buyers remodel extensively, or tear the
structure down and rebuild. Throughout the three-county
area a number of buyers have paid $1 million to $1.5
million for house and lot before improvements. "One
problem with remodeling, Gargano cautioned, is flood
insurance regulations that limit remodeling allowances.
"The $500,000 property might have the real estate valued at
$400,000 and the structure at $100,000. That would put a
$500,000 cap on remodeling expenses."
Hurricane Andrew has put a damper on many plans
buyers had for waterfront homes. Insurance is more difficult
to obtain and both residential and flood insurance rates
are almost certain to go up. In some instances, property and
residence may be uninsurable.
Waterfront residences are not necessarily tied to the
dreams of boat owners, but a boat is a big positive factor in
adding value for the owner.
"Owners like to look out from the patio or family
room and see their boat at their own dock. Ownership pride,
convenience, security and cost are factors here," Gargano
At Pier 66, for example, dockage price includes an
attractive package of goods and services, including
electricity and water, cable, parking and the resort's
facilities and amenities. The price is $1.10 a foot per day
on an annual basis; that's $20,075 for 365 days.
At times spaces have been sold for "dockaminiums"
with $100,000 price tags and there is a steady demand.
After all, that's less than five years of rentals at an annual
But, from the homeowners view, the $100,000 can be
applied against a $500,000 home with a 20 percent
economy, and the boat just steps from the kitchen door.
Either way, the $100,000 investment proves out: the
dockaminium would be worth $150,000 or so at the end of
10 years, while the waterfront home also should appreciate
at about the same rate, given today's modest three percent
Today's concern with the environment and with the
state's waterways mean that while no new waterfront is
being created, it's also difficult to build new marina docks.
It becomes increasingly obvious that the headlines
along the waterfront are "good news" for the seller and
"higher prices" for buyers and boat owners.
For example, communities increasingly discourage
trailered boats in residential areas, tax-financed "free" boat
ramps are having launch fees applied, cities discourage
private dock rentals in residential areas especially
houseboats or liveaboards and it's certainly easier and
more convenient to do essential chores when the boat is
tied up in your own backyard.

A brand new boat with a heritage
as good as Maine can offer.
ASHMOO BOATS are descended directly from the famous Jonesport lob-
ster boats, respected as some of the most graceful and seaworthy of
all power boat designs. Our 24-footer combines the best of the old and the new.
Her easily-driven, comfortable hull performs beautifully with half the power of
a "modern" hull while offering the durability and low maintenance of fiberglass;
outboard power means convenience, trailerability, and more usable space. She
is available in a lobster boat model with hardtop or open bass boat style. The
Tashmoo 24 is a thoroughbred boat for the discerning skipper. And the prettiest
outboard in any harbor. Also available: Tashmoo open skiffs 18, 16, and 15'.
