Mills of the small boat operators section of federal department's marine safety branch said this week in an that anrt uross load recommenda- .C. liberal leader on longshots playi VANCOUVER oral Loader David Anderson, n political lone wolf who bus so far thrived Ity plrtyint; ihc Jong- shols, i.s trading a safe fed- eral scat in ISritisri Columbia for a risky run al a Social Cre- dit, Cabinet minister in the Aug. 30 provincial election. The liandsomc '.'A year old bachelor politician resigned 25 as Liberal MI1 for the Vancouver Inland rilling of Ks- DUG of Hie few 3 idmj's in this province that had chalked intu "safe" column for the upcoming federal election. Mr. Anderson now is Liberal candidate in the provincial con- stituency of Victoria, whcrn the incumbent i.s Soci.'i! Credit Strongman Waldo Shillings minister of trade, commerce ami industrial development. Time is of the essence lo Mr. Anderson. Jle was elected pro- vincial leader In May, only two months before Premier A. C. Bennett announced the elec- tion and dissolved Hie S.l-mem- ber legislature. POLLUTION As a Liberal backbencher In the Commons, Mr. Andersons's imc-mon campaign ;jgain.st Ihc planned American oil tanker route from Alaska down the B.C. coast earned him lional reputation as a pollution fighter. lint as a provincial politician lie entered the election cam paign as a one-Issue candidate taking a cram course in the province's complicated politi ca! cross currents the harvcr Tory veteran George Jhatterton in nch, Mr. Anderson soon earned a reputation as a Liberal cau- :us hofilrocker because of his outspoken .stance on the tanker riite. He consistently embarrassed cabinet ministers during the commons quest ion period by tsking them blockbusters of he type that ministers were mrmally used lo fielding only Tom Die opposition benches. Arid lie was growing increas- ingly restless and discontented A'ilh the diminutive role the run of the mill government enjoys in the de- cision making process in Ot- tawa. Back !n British Columbia the provincial Liberals were in ser- ious trouble last winter, ridden with dissension over the leader- ship of Dr. fat McCicer, a 44- yeur old University of B.C. brain researcher who bad led .e party since With his leadership openly challenged by Mel Couvelier, provincial party president, Dr. McfJecr wanted out. The Lib- eral kingmakers here and in Ottawa coupled Dave Ander- son's disillusionment with Ot- tawa to Dr. McGecr's disen- chantment with the provincial leadership, In early May Dr. McGcer an- nounced bis resignation. He and the four other mem bens of the Liberal caucus in Victoria an- nounced their unanimous suj: port for Mr. Anderson, along with Mr. Couvelier and other party At a leadership convention I wo weeks later in Penlicton, Mr. Anderson overcame loken opposition from Mayor William Vander Zalm of Surrey lo in- herit a job he knew very little ah out. As election time rolled arout'.cl Mr, Anderson was faced willi the problem of win- ning persona! election lo the legislature. He opted for the (uugticst riding on Vancouver Island the two member Victoria constituency "be- cause I want to run against and defeat a cabinet minister." The riding has been solid Social Credit country .since 1933. In Die iMO election it re- turned two cabinet ministers, Mr, and Works Mini- ster W. N. Chant, who did not seek re-election tins time. Mr. Anderson's running mate is Canon B. Anderson, a deniist ami former chairman of the Victoria .school board, white Mr. Skillings is teamed with Newell Morrison, a Vic- toria car dealer. The TIDP and Conservatives are also running pairs of candidates. The Liberals have their work cut mil for them. Three years ago the Social Credit candi- dates amassed more than votes between them, compared with tor the new Demo- crats and fewer than for the Liberals. There wore no Tories. Consequently, Mr. Anderson finds himself having lo spend an abnormally large amount oE the lime campaigning in bis home riding 14 days to he exact meaning Uiat candi- dates elsewhere in the province aren't seeing too much of tlie new leader. From the Liberals' stand- point that's unfortunate be- cause Mr. Anderson ranks as ucir No. 1 asset, in the current campaign. The Victoria born lawyer has a carefully polished cam- paign style that goes across in the cities, his technique .mproved by six years as a 'orcign service officer in Hong Kong and Vietnam- He speaks with the accent of a man who has pone lo all the schools which indeed, he hns, in B.C., Switzerland and Hong Kong and parly of- ficials find they have to coax him into being a little more folksy when he's campaigning back In tiio boondocks. Mr. Anderson rowed University of British Columbia crew that won .silver medals for Canada in the 1959 Pan- American Games and the I960 Summer Olympics. Sailing remains a favorite pastime. And had Prime Mini- ster Trndcau called a June elect ion 1 his year ins t ead ot waiting, Mr. Anderson would prohahly lacking through Ihc (lulf Islands as a re-elect- ed federal MP rather sinking or swimming In Victoria tin's summer.

Insurance companies charge; higher premiums to applicants who drastically overpower their vessels, similar lo (he higher rales charged "owners of muscle be said. And curators run (he risk of really "being in the glue" with police if they arc caught breaching (he load and power limits in addition, .say, lo oper- ating the boat dangerously. The small regulations of the Canada Shipping Act say Ihc load and pmvcr recommen- dations must be stamped on all small outlxtards "in a plainly visible position." The two figures on each stamped plate are calculated through a complex formula that takes into account a di- mensions and curves. The gross load capacity is the combined weight of (he boat, motor, equipment and passengers. The horsepower figure states the recommended amount of power IhaL can safely run the boat with a full load. Hence, Capt, Miils explained., if an operator decided tn use a motor smaller than the size recommended, he could theo- retically carry more equipment or an extra passenger. The lend arid power figures arc based, on the performance of a large of boats tasted on special courses. Boat manufacturers ami importers participate in the tests. 50.000 I.SSUKI) About of the plates are issued every year, Capt. .Mills said. Many are issued individ- ually to boat owners, Others arc issued in b-.ilk to manufac- turers who sell standard-sized boats with motors. Once Iho boat is on the wa- ter, the transport department requires that it carry one ap- proved life jacked or floatable cushion for each passenger. Jackets do not have in be worn, but must be on every boat un- der 18 leet long, including row- boats and canoes with motors attached. Larger hoats required what is called a standard manufactured in one style only. There are no set rules saying who is for providing lifejackets, Capt. Mills said. Generally it is the person who owns or operates the boat. "It's the guy who takes (he boat Capt. Mills said. If, however, a boat is rented it is reasonable to assume that the Oct. 1. The-so will require boat- er.s lo carry an additional num- of. marine publications and charts. Details have yet to be worked oul, but the new regulations will probably affect most cruis- ing boats weighing more than a few tons and used lor travelling substantial distances. The regulations were publish- ed in July in tta department's Canadian Notices to Mariners am! would require "all self-pro- pelled ships in waters under Canadian anti-pollution juris- diction" to carry such publica- tions as the Great Lakes Pilot, Radio Aids to Marine Naviga- tion, fists of Lights, Buoys and P'og .Signals, Tide and Current Tables and the most recent Ls- sue of Ihc Code of Navigation Practices and P.ocetlures. All the charts and publica- tions, which could cost boaters between and would have to be kept up to date and many would have to be kept on board [fie boat. we need room message ALL RENTALS MUST II SOME UNITS RENTED FOR ONLY 1 WEEK ASK FOR THEM BY RENTAL HO.
