      A Few Simple Rules   05/22/2017

      Sailing Anarchy is a very lightly moderated site. This is by design, to afford a more free atmosphere for discussion. There are plenty of sailing forums you can go to where swearing isn't allowed, confrontation is squelched and, and you can have a moderator finger-wag at you for your attitude. SA tries to avoid that and allow for more adult behavior without moderators editing your posts and whacking knuckles with rulers. We don't have a long list of published "thou shalt nots" either, and this is by design. Too many absolute rules paints us into too many corners. So check the Terms of Service - there IS language there about certain types of behavior that is not permitted. We interpret that lightly and permit a lot of latitude, but we DO reserve the right to take action when something is too extreme to tolerate (too racist, graphic, violent, misogynistic, etc.). Yes, that is subjective, but it allows us discretion. Avoiding a laundry list of rules allows for freedom; don't abuse it. However there ARE a few basic rules that will earn you a suspension, and apparently a brief refresher is in order. 1) Allegations of pedophilia - there is no tolerance for this. So if you make allegations, jokes, innuendo or suggestions about child molestation, child pornography, abuse or inappropriate behavior with minors etc. about someone on this board you will get a time out. This is pretty much automatic; this behavior can have real world effect and is not acceptable. Obviously the subject is not banned when discussion of it is apropos, e.g. talking about an item in the news for instance. But allegations or references directed at or about another poster is verboten. 2) Outing people - providing real world identifiable information about users on the forums who prefer to remain anonymous. Yes, some of us post with our real names - not a problem to use them. However many do NOT, and if you find out someone's name keep it to yourself, first or last. This also goes for other identifying information too - employer information etc. You don't need too many pieces of data to figure out who someone really is these days. Depending on severity you might get anything from a scolding to a suspension - so don't do it. I know it can be confusing sometimes for newcomers, as SA has been around almost twenty years and there are some people that throw their real names around and their current Display Name may not match the name they have out in the public. But if in doubt, you don't want to accidentally out some one so use caution, even if it's a personal friend of yours in real life. 3) Posting While Suspended - If you've earned a timeout (these are fairly rare and hard to get), please observe the suspension. If you create a new account (a "Sock Puppet") and return to the forums to post with it before your suspension is up you WILL get more time added to your original suspension and lose your Socks. This behavior may result a permanent ban, since it shows you have zero respect for the few rules we have and the moderating team that is tasked with supporting them. Check the Terms of Service you agreed to; they apply to the individual agreeing, not the account you created, so don't try to Sea Lawyer us if you get caught. Just don't do it. Those are the three that will almost certainly get you into some trouble. IF YOU SEE SOMEONE DO ONE OF THESE THINGS, please do the following: Refrain from quoting the offending text, it makes the thread cleanup a pain in the rear Press the Report button; it is by far the best way to notify Admins as we will get e-mails. Calling out for Admins in the middle of threads, sending us PM's, etc. - there is no guarantee we will get those in a timely fashion. There are multiple Moderators in multiple time zones around the world, and anyone one of us can handle the Report and all of us will be notified about it. But if you PM one Mod directly and he's off line, the problem will get dealt with much more slowly. Other behaviors that you might want to think twice before doing include: Intentionally disrupting threads and discussions repeatedly. Off topic/content free trolling in threads to disrupt dialog Stalking users around the forums with the intent to disrupt content and discussion Repeated posting of overly graphic or scatological porn content. There are plenty web sites for you to get your freak on, don't do it here. And a brief note to Newbies... No, we will not ban people or censor them for dropping F-bombs on you, using foul language, etc. so please don't report it when one of our members gives you a greeting you may find shocking. We do our best not to censor content here and playing swearword police is not in our job descriptions. Sailing Anarchy is more like a bar than a classroom, so handle it like you would meeting someone a little coarse - don't look for the teacher. Thanks.

This Is Ridiculous Again

Time for the fake imitation guy to start a new fake imitation thread.....

 

 

 

Long live the real Motorcycle

 

 

 

 

 

 

I guess Stowe is still bobbing around, people continue to give him enough stuff to get by and he manages to lure in another young thing.

 

So it's off to Guyana? Away from the "yachties", lawyers and bill collectors.

 

Still amazed he can sail around NY harbor without being impounded.

 

 

 

Wednesday, 07 September 2011 adventure-voyagers1.jpg

 

 

 

After a year of boat living in the protected waters of New York Harbor, Soanya and I are feeling the call of the wild wide open sea again. We think our three year old son Darshen is ready to go too. When a storm wind blows between the buildings that line the waterfront, Darshen stands in the wind with his arms stretched out to the sides and shouts over and over again, “I love the breeze!” Soanya’s family is from Guyana and we have been thinking of sailing there for many reasons. We want to sail to a faraway place where we won’t tourists or “yachties.” We will leave NY be leaving NY and the cold North Atlantic and enter warmer waters and trade winds. As we sail into warm tropical winds we will make our landfall on a jungle coast and begin our exploration of Guyana’s rivers.

 

A friend of ours had to abandon his 90 ft. sailboat. As a result, he gave us all the gear like the anchor, chain, sails, rigging, turnbuckles, ropes and pulleys. This gift freed us up to imagine we could go to sea again. We have quite a few friends who have been telling us that they want to go with us when we go again. So we are already taking crew onboard and are interviewing others. Rachel has already moved on the schooner and more are coming.

 

 

Of course we will have to work on the schooner as we go. Seamanship comes first. As we explore the outer reaches of nature where few people go. We will share our story live as we did on our previous “longest non-stop continuous sea voyage in history.”

His fastidious obsession with maintenance, the ridiculously high standards he sets for crew selection, and his humility.

 

He's a fantastic role model for sailors and has done wonders for the international image of our sport.

Please don't forget his contributions to science, and how he has influenced the global understanding of the human psyche.

 

He has also made noteworthy contributions in the fields of literature, art and yoga.

It's more drifting than sailing, but it does involve a boat. I'll take drug smuggling, grifting and child abandonment for $500 Alex.

the truth is somewhere in between the sycophants and the sardonic critics (the latter being much more humorous though to be sure). He has sailed around the world at about two knots. He did jury-rig his headstays and foresails after losing his bowsprit in a collision with a containership, and it lasted for three years. He did manage to stay alive without restocking food or water from shore. He did round both of the Capes. And he didn't seem to end up significantly crazier than when he started out.

 

Then again, the jury rig was needed because he failed to see the containership coming on a clear night, some of his reports make one's head want to explode, the Anne is kind of a piece of lead, and, uh, then there's the Soanya story, the kid, and all the rest.

Could also be that a lot of people go out and go cruising the old fashioned way - they save their shekels for years and/or work along the way to afford it. Rather than creating some highly publicized "Magical Mystery Tour" where you try to get people to sponsor you for some pseudo-scientific art project thingy. Which, on the whole seems easier especially if you aren't too fastidious about things like boat maintenance or watching where you are going.

 

I'm wondering if I can find a way to re-purpose our family cruise next year to some sort of pseudo-scientific psychedelic art experiment so I can put a Paypal button on my blog for the betterment of humanity too.

 

Or not.

Sponsor links from the first trip ---

 

Parmigiano Reggiano -- I do love the product, myself, and would never have known the strict production requirements or how long that shit would last without the 1000 Days Space Oddity.

 

 

Disciplinare2011-Img1-1-1-2-2-1-1-3.jpg

 

 

 

Sprout seeds came from that NY guy who owns Kadouri International, who was concerned at one point that the head aquanaut wasn't what he appeared to be, but only expressed his misgivings once in the NYDN. I gotta say, if this guy's sprouts are still sprouting after 1000 days of damp, he's the go-to guy for seeds. He also had dried fruit aboard the Schooner and the nuts he supplied had a higher sanity factor than the Skipper.

The sponsor who deserves the most credit, IMO, is Optima Battery. The most important system on the boat that didn't shit the bed. These guys could have gotten their money's worth if the space cadet had mentioned them more than 3 times over 1100 days.

I see it as different levels of mocking. Sure, I poke fun at my friends, to their face. I'll accept it to my face from my friends. The distinction here is intent and motive. I'll do it because it's not building me up by tearing them down.

 

I see that as quite different then spending a lot of energy mocking someone I don't know. It does me no good, serves no purpose for me.

 

For. Me.

 

If you or someone else wants to, have at it.

 

As for me, I spend my energy on other things.

 

See the difference?

 

And hard enough, thank you. No reason to sharpen my edge on someone I don't know.

 

 

I poked fun at him via e-mail and poked fun at his shore team in person. He's well loved, has some incredibly good friends, and Soanya is not the idiot some make her out to be. She's no Abby Sunderland, but she's no naive idiot attention whore either; or not that....either.

 

I, like most of the other idiots here, spend a lot of time sailing and no one here, except for maybe Espo, lauds their talents publicly.

 

If one wants to be a part of the sailing fraternity (which I am currently pledging) , he/she should do something other than nautical pole sitting.

 

I appreciate your position, Blackjenner. I have a soft spot in my heart for Reid Stowe as well. But when sponsorship dollars for sailing ventures are so hard to come by, this bull shit "Mars Mission" fucks the rest of the pooches' dollars.

 

Night, mate. Check his website and toss it over a bit.

 

Sorry I used the word "idiot" so much. Makes me feel normal.

 

Anyway, I get the resentment on the part of some. I also understand, all too well, the path of making this guy a hobby. I've seen the websites mocking him to no end but, ya know, I don't know if he cares.

 

 

He's living some part of some dream that is his. So he drifted/sailed for 1000 days around the oceans of the world, navigating a heart in one ocean with his positions and a whale in another. He did that in a boat of his own creation. Slow and odd that his trip may have been, he did, apparently sail (slowly) at sea for a thousand days.

 

He's apparently in the company of a beautiful wife and a cute little kid, who he seems, from what I've read, to love very much.

 

Yeah, he's a weirdo to many, and he rubs some folks the wrong way. He's an artist and his art isn't to everyone's taste. I've had a lot of artist friends in my time and, I'll tell you, I've spent more than one moment looking at them a little sideways and accepting that their art is not quite my cup of tea, if not downright weird. And to that I say, "so what. it's their art. I don't have to like it."

 

Oh, I get what you are saying, especially him getting the attention/dollars that some of us think we deserve. It's kind of like that douche in high school or college who gets all the girls when all we one is one, maybe two. I mean, we aren't greedy. :)

 

It's tough when we know we are talented, deserving, and some other guy gets the promotion/sponsorship/role. There have been times in my life when I haven't gotten that promotion. That hurt. I auditioned and didn't get the role I was perfect for, dammit. That was hard too. But other times, I've had my day in the sun, gotten some attention I damn well deserved, and I'll be happy with that.

 

Back to the original point, I see no benefit to me, or anyone else in spending any real energy mocking the man.

 

He seems to be happy. He's sailed the seas of the world.

 

That's more than some.

 

Reid Stowe is a consumate con man and a charlatan. That is why we make fun of him. He sold the unsuspecting public a bill of false goods about his scientifically important Mars Analagous mission which was a bunch of baloney, to con money and supplies out of naive non-sailors. His so called "record" is the equivalent of nautical pole sitting, as Regatta Dog has already pointed out.

 

 

So you Like him??

My only point in responding earlier is I'm not interested in spending any time mocking him. That was it. My only point.

 

Others are entitled to so do. They don't need my permission or agreement to do that.

 

I just care not to.

 

I may have missed: had someone posted a request that you mock him?

 

It was in response to a comment someone else made.

Let me guess....you're another one of those uptight libby Seattle pot smoking coffee-sucking fuk-wits who live under a pile of moss, hasn't seen the sun since JFK's funeral, willfully pay more taxes so that junkies can run free with needles stuck in their arms, thinks an idea of a good date is going umbrella shopping, is pissed that tofu will never taste like venison, owns three de-clawed cats, has spent ten years perfecting a hemp condom, owns a 63 year gaff-rigged woody that looks like a g-damn Chia pet, stands in line at the Apple store eight months before a new product has even passed the third test stage, thinks Sideways was the best f'ng movie since Ishtar, drives a Toyota Hi-Lux that runs on used vegetable and love, holds a candle light vigil on the day that Kurt failed shot gun 101 and has three adopted redwoods named Al, Mikey and Carbon Credit?.......

Nice rant

 

He could be mocking him -

i think Stowe's pattern of behaviors is fascinating. like all malignant narcissistic sociopaths, his repetoire is very limited. i actually don't believe he is capable of modifying his behavior. (faulty wiring).

before SA shined the spotlight on him, he got away with some real whoppers.

 

soanya sees strawberry blonde, just like wife 2. or was it three?

the facts are simple.

the money his buddies gave him for dockage has run out and neither of them want to get a job. there is no book, no movie, no nothing.

i believe Stowe will revert to criminal behavior, (the easy way), rather than 'step up' and support his family legitimately. the most accurate indicator of future behavior is past behavior. Reid has already admitted the last time he went to South America was for the purpose of smuggling. what's changed?

hucksters are forever.

 

what is the title for this 'adventure'? Reid has shouted every voyage he makes has a title.

Stowe has declared himself a public figure. speculating on his actions is as fair game as any celebrity gossip or political forum.

 

 

Making this one is high praise??

What happened to the book, the movie, the motivational speaking tours, the massively valauble art collection stored in the barn, the Hovian spin machine ??

 

Please dont tell me his Hovian hopes and plans have been DARSHED !

 

Tired of the Mirth and thirsting for another free birth to freeload from ?

 

I was waiting for the tshirt, but it looks like the WORM has turned.

 

A remote jungle coastline of guyana (will we see the same tree in the background of this photo ?)

 

Out of the reaches of home schooling authorities, lawyers, parents, but still in range of dysentry and cholera and malaria, and home birth advice by radio....

 

Um what about the high infant mortality rate, and low life expectancy ?

 

Im sure the natives will be enormously impressed at his ability to invert his internal organs while drawing with excrement on scraps of cloth...

 

What an ambassador this man is. Just dont drink the koolaid people..

 

 

But he has 474 facebook friends. Are you his facebook friend?? I am!!!

DAY 2

40° 45' 21" north

73° 59' 11" west

 

Wind from the north and windy.

 

As the day approaches for the journeys start, my lust for my new found youth grows. I can not wait to be away again -

to be alone again drifting south - alone but yet with others. To share my knowledge with my fruit and to be at sea again with the fruit's mother and my new found youth. I can feel the closeness with God, Buddha and all, and with my ship, my wife and my youth I can again indulge, combine and consummate my 2 greatest passions.

 

Painting and cheese.

Get used to it kid. Old farts who can convince young women there is MONEY available at the end of the rainbow will always be surounded by golddiggers.

 

Reid has a 70 foot boat. Odds are the blonde is NOT a yacht surveyor.

 

Very funny. Thanks Gouv.

Gouv, I must take the time to congratulate you on the cross thread you have going on.

 

Is truly inspirational, and some of the best I have ever seen.

 

 

 

 

What is a cross thread??
