oating News From Miami, Florida

Probe Sought On Jetty Where Marlins Pitcher Crashed........

 

Wednesday, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio sent a letter to the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers requesting a probe into the rock jetty where a boat crashed Sunday morning, taking the lives of Miami Marlins pitcher Jose Fernandez and to friends.

 

The probe would review the century-old jetty, and whether it poses a chronic danger to boaters.  Rubio said that the jetty extends from Miami's port, and is difficult to see at night, especially during high tide.

 

Rubio adds that he has firsthand experience with the jetty, and understands the challenges it presents to navigation.  The jetty is not lighted, and officials say that routine reviews determined that the existing navigational aids are adequate for safety.  The Coast Guard reports that a lighted buoy marking the channel opening at the end of the jetty was working properly........

Asian Carp Update

Carp Population Slows Near Great Lakes....  Growing Elsewhere....

 

Dan Stephenson with the Illinois Department of Fisheries says that the growth of the Asian carp population is slowing in northern Illinois, but increasing in other parts of the state.

 

Stephenson adds that along the Illinois River near Morris, Illinois, commercial fishermen catch nearly 5 million pounds of Asian carp each year, and send them to a processing plant.  He believes that the only chance to slow down the growth of the carp population is to construct processing plants to transform the fish into food or fertilizer.

 

According to Stephenson, the Illinois River in the Grafton area has seen a surge in the Asian carp population because the conditions for the fish are perfect........

Mississippi River Journeys

Iowa Retiree Determined To Paddle The Mississippi.........

 

76 year old fitness enthusiast Hans Frischeisen has biked across the United States four times, and is planning for the third time to wrap up a kayak trip down the Mississippi River.

 

Frischeisen says that his reason for starting these new adventures is simple:  He was a new immigrant to this country, and perhaps that motivated him to give it a shot.

 

He will be travelling about 500 miles, at about three miles per hour.  Frischeisen passes the time on the water writing, shaving, brushing his teeth, and even taking a nap occasionally....  without the benefit of an autopilot....

Mississippi River At La Crosse, Wisconsin

Students Patrolling The River During Oktoberfest........

 

On Thursday, Oktoberfest will start in La Crosse, and local police will be assisted by college students looking to keep revelers safe and dry. 

 

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, Students from University of Wisconsin - La Crosse, Viterbo, and Western Technical College will be participating in Operation River Watch, in an effort to keep people out of the river.

 

Operation River Watch formed 10 years ago after eight college students drowned in the Mississippi River between 1997 and 2006.  The students keep tabs on the river every weekend, but they say that Oktoberfest is one of the most important times to be watching the river........

Boat Manufacturer

Baja's Brands Getting Needed Resuscitation........

 

Joe Curran, CEO of Iconic Marine Group, who recently purchased all four brands of Baja Marine LLC, says that the venerated brands will be brought back to their former glory. 

 

Curran does not believe that the turnaround of the four brands, which include Baja Marine, Donzi and Donzi Classic, Fountain Powerboats, and Pro-Line, will be easy.  Curran, formerly of Crest Pontoons, believes that it will be at least two model years to differentiate the brands, and get them reestablished.

 

Curran says that the four brands have a great following at the retail level, and that each of the brands has a distinct place and personality.  He adds that they will be developing the products for the future, while being respectful of the past........
