      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

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.”

The original thread decayed to the point I couldn't read it, but someplace in the first 40,000 or so posts was some of the funniest stuff to ever be on SA.

no doubt...still waiting on the coffee table book of photoshop pix from that thread...solid gold.

Bets on how long it takes him to knock both of them up this time.

 

More likely they'll give up on him and start doing each other...The floating Isle of "we don't wanna get pregnant" Lesbos. Now, Ried, go run the boat and mind the child.

Figure on 8-12 months to make it down there, drawing hearts along the way. I put the over under on one or both being knocked up at 120 days.

Oh shit....

 

Pics from wherever in NY harbor he is hiding?

 

Has he revised his provisioning list? Cheese? Sprouts? Shrooms?

 

He's on the Twelfth Street Pier in Hoboken.

 

I think his boat's the one in the foreground of the picture, but one can never be too sure about these things --

So I'm curious. I that that Reid is one odd guy.

 

So, aside from that, what is the heartburn, specifically, that some of you have with him?

 

Not defending him. Just curious.

Yeah, it is, as far as I can tell. They guy sails, and does other stuff that, apparently, pushes some buttons.

 

However, he does sail. Right?

 

Anyway, I asked a straight question. Let's see if I get a straight answer.

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.

 

Or so he claims.

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.

Let's not forget Sailflat, NickDG, Swan70 and all the rest of the Hovian Tools™ from Mission Control....

 

Who's bringing the Cheeze & sprouts?

 

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.
