      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

Reid is a genius!

Where am I? In a cube working for the man :(

What is he doing?

Spending his whole life getting laid by silly young chicks and not ever once having a "job". :)

The rust is just a cover to keep us from seeing the underlying brilliance I tell you.

 

 

Time to get an old shitbox boat, make some "art" and head for Manhattan!!:lol:

I guess the staples should give them a good supply of iron in their diet....

But they might be better off using the staples for holding the hull and sails together...

Just happened across this thread. Know nothing about this guy. Certainly this Reid Stowe seems to be an eccentric - void hoo etc.... , 1000 days at sea. However is there more to him than this? There appears to be suggestions of chicanery and run ins with the law. Has he ever actually done anything wrong? Does he read these posts I wonder? If he does and they are untrue, if I were him I would be well pissed.....

secret thread??? Pm me!!

 

I forget where, but I think it's linked in the main (now closed) thread toward the end.

 

Basically, it was a thread in which they were tracking his position, but only by reference to his number. Using names or terms that would bring the thread up in any kind of Hovian related search was prohibited. Pretty funny. I found out about it at the end and scanned it a bit, but didn't read the whole thing, so I'm not really sure what's in there.

Days are getting shorter, there's a chill in the air, it's rainy, gray and raw. We'll see how the charm and romance of confinement in a decrepit rusting ferro cube wears on our lovely hovianettes. They'll be scurrying back to their wine bars and art galleries fairly soon.

 

Weido's been home for quite a bit and still doesn't seem to have made any significant repairs to the sproutship. Bet nothing besides the replacement of a few shackles and lines gets done.. Totally depends on what people give, I mean donate to him. All this talk of overhauling gear prior to leaving for Guyana is probably just to allay the concerns of the newbies.

 

Was sad to see someone give Weid that lovely sailing dinghy. Could have been donated to the kids in the Rock The Boat program in the Bronx and used for something worthwhile.

I thought about that today whilst driving, and I'm willing to cut Reid some slack on this trip. He's not asking the public for donations. I'd wager that his passengers are paying passengers (not so much cash, but provisioning and some gifts in kind) and am excited that he's going to get the sat phone going. There will probably be more than a few laptops and digital cameras on the Lido Deck.

 

I've never been to Guyana, but my mother's cousin (twice removed) took her kids down there with some guru from Cali to start a new life in the early 70's after a bad divorce . Last letter my Mom got in the mid 70's, things were going well. We haven't heard from her in 30 years, but assume she and the kids are doing well.

 

I'll drop Reid an E-mail and ask him to track the family down when he arrives. My dear aging Mother would love to know how the kids turned out.

 

EDIT - Hey Red. Things back to normal up there? That shit sucked worse for you guys.

Day Five

 

40° 45' 21" north 73° 59' 11" west

Wind - Quite windy but not as windy as it gets sometimes when it is very windy.

 

 

 

As our departure looms I, as a man of the sea and a seaman, am aware of the perils that may lie ahead. The sea is my friend but my friend has many moods and so I must prepare the schooner for my friends’ bad moods. The schooner is strong but there is much work to be done. I must stow the ship well for in past voyages to these waters, my ship was not stowed well enough and so I had to remain ashore for some months to reflect on my poor stowage. The lesson this taught me is that it is just as important to stow the ship for entering new ports than it is to put to sea.

We shall make the schooner stronger so that my crew of sirens is safe from perils and that they trust and understand my seamanship as Soy does. I look forward to the tests ahead and hope that at some stage of the journey each of the sirens will have an opportunity to bring out the seaman from within me.

 

 

The preparations continue.

This is fun and all, but has anyone thought about routing from New York to Guyana with a mid-November departure in a boat that doesn't go to windward very well?

 

My guess is he has to sail a long way east, then south, then west. The great circle route?.

 

I don't think sailing east from New York in mid-November will be much fun.

What about Reid don't you understand. A proper semen leaves home with as much force as possible, propelled it knows not where and into whatever conditions exist. If there is no barrier to exiting the harbor then the journey commences, the route unknown, the destination unclear- hopefully a tight harbor and a snug fit.

bugger, i am not much of a navigator, being mostly content just to pinpoint my location rather than plan ahead too far.

but i have heard a little bit about that passage from other sailors and yeah, it's a zig zag.

he will have to go east first, that's correct.

it is actually fortunate that he is starting so far north, it gives him a lot more favorable angle.

i would guess he will basically head over spain wise then south along africa far enough to slide in low on the hellish north bound current along the sa coast north of brazil. no way he can buck it in the scow, it would break up in the relentless chop. he will probably follow his catamaran track to the letter, he doesn't actually like to change a once successful event..he likes to replicate it and is very predictable that way much as he tries to come off as a risk taker.

i read an article by i think its redshoes on cruising world one time where he describes sailing the other way, direct, down from the antilles. i never forgot his story. if you can find that article, it's a really good read.

he can get out of winter in just three days and the boisterous winds will actually help him move along reefed waay down sloppy hauled.

Reid doesn't overthink it, he uses the passage charts and follows the windroses on there, regardless of current conditions so if you look at those charts, you will have his route precisely.

the only drawback in that plan is his crew. he might be thinking he should follow the u.s. coast down to nc to temper his crew and dump the sea sickies who want off. he can't do that in the middle of the atlantic. but he might pick up some spare change hustling the docks offering tours of the schooner and some family might give him some groceries.

the angle from there is much harder though. due east to clear the bahamas i think.

i predict he will first head to the place where they drifted and did repairs for months and remenisce with a blog entry. (swami pip). i also think one of the girls might suddenly discover other commitments and can't go..

No problem, Reid is an expert at forming great circles when he sails. Or variations thereof; turtles, whales, hearts...

A staged publicity shot to try and have the cashed up hovians believe that the girls actually know something about sailing, when in reality their minds are going "doh,what is this ?" or

"Ïm only doing this for the picture for the book that will be written for me later."

From Weid's site:

 

"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."

 

 

Explains the source of the rigging bring utilized in the preparation for the next great voyage.

 

With more people's lives at stake this time I hope he gets an AIS (unlikely) or at least posts a watch system to avoid some of the things that go bump in the night.

Yeah. That was fun, K-I-S, but after a couple grand in therapy, I'm able to keep this little jaunt at arm's length. Hell, I'm not even doing the virtual Volvo race this time around. I've found an antiquated form of entertainment called a "book", and there's a business in my town called "The Library" that let's you borrow them without paying. I have no idea how they stay in business. Perhaps late fees or revenue from the copying machine. Whatever it is, they had some major financing. The inventory is incredible.

And then you'll discover interlibrary loans and wonder how other similar businesses lend out their inventories to your local business for free if their inventory is unable to serve your no doubt peculiar requirements.

You *really* need to read the original. It devolved eventually to unreadability, but some of the funniest shit ever posted on SA is in the first few thousand posts.

 

Jesus, this thread is beginning to verge on stalking. I'm out of here.

 

Yeah. That was fun, K-I-S, but after a couple grand in therapy, I'm able to keep this little jaunt at arm's length.

 

you'll prolly have a -relapse- once they cast-off :rolleyes:

 

The VOR, or the fucking Tantra schooner thing?

 

I'm jonesing right now. Not cool. Not cool at all. I'm gonna have to ring C-Scow to talk me off the ledge and my Jetta's breaks are fucked and there's no Shife? Fuck this place, man. Fuck this place.

 

I'll set up the GoPro before I eat the barrel of the 357 so you kids can see the pink cloud as I open a door in the back of my head by forced lead from the front.

 

I'm kidding. I really don't give a shit. Just killing time.

This new "voyage" is just minor entertainment at best. The 1,000 Days of Cheese thing was held out to the world as a major scientific research, finding out if you can eat cheese all the way to Mars and back, etc. etc.....

Rachel is gonna get gangbanged... Reid and Alex with Soy wearing a strapon. Now that's a video I will buy....

 

By Rachel Jamison

 

The second crew member to move aboard, Alex Sanford, came ready for heavy duty work and he has not been disappointed. In his flame resistant pants and ipod in tow, he fired up the cutting torch and sparks began to fly. A few weeks ago as we attempted to put on the graciously donated turnbuckles, we found that 3 years at sea had corroded them to inoperable, immovable, masses of rust. They had to be torched off. We now float with the old rigging dangling from the mast head and the new rigging being prepped for installation.

 

This week we focused on freeing the old bowsprit, and retiring her to scrap metal. The jury rigged reminder of day 15 of the 1000 Days voyage when a collision with a freighter severely damaged our bowsprit is finally being laid to rest. The little stub is being replaced with a new proud bowsprit and bow pulpit before we leave for Guyana. Alex's welding skills are being put to good use as the schooner Anne gets ready to sail again.

rusted into inoperability. Ah, theres the microcosm of reids life. Given a functional tool to start with, failed to look after it, instead came back with hand out to ask for another. Reid reminds me of a certain indian god, sitting on a yoga platform, with 15 hands extended for a donation.... Need Stowe.

Sorry, fuck-knuckle. I forgot you were still with AOL dial up with a 2400 baud modem running Dos with a Word Perfect template on your keyboard..

 

Here's the link --

&feature=player_embedded

 

If you have any problems with that, I've still got the DOS bible and we can do a config.sys command, identify the hardware, ping the server, and concatenate the file and reduce the size by 10% using a 1996 version of Win-Zip. Or I could just send you a 9 track tape. I think LexisNexis still has some of that technology up at their Dayton campus, but since Reed Elsevier took over the campus, they've gotten all "modern". I hear they use high speed internet connections, but am not sure if they do that with DOS commands.

 

Call me. I know people.

I would hope you all have better things to do with your time however if you are truly desperate it could be good for chuckles.

 

Will he perform solo, with Soanya or will he have a new female accompanist?

 

Have fun kiddies

Stowe will recount the amazing voyage at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Wilbur Cross High School Auditorium, 181 Mitchell Drive. Tickets are $10 at the door and $7 in advance at the New Haven Department of Parks, Recreation & Trees office at 720 Edgewood Ave.

 

If anyone shows up and pays the ten bucks, I would say it's proof that the Ed should charge admission for the old 1,000 days thread. Has to be worth $20 at least. :lol:

Reid no tweety lately

A few gems from http://nowheremag.com/2011/04/1152-days-at-sea-reid-stowe/

 

 

 

I think Soanya caught a few drips on a few occasions where she called it to my attention.

 

I [said] “No, I think it’s okay.”

 

“No, I think I hear a gurgling.”

 

And we found things that were leaking.

 

It could be the stuffing box, where the propeller goes out at the back of the boat, or the stern gland, where the rudder goes out the back of the boat. It could be any seacocks to the toilets. You have to know what is in various rooms that are possibilities for leaking. And you have to trust that the boat isn’t leaking and all the gurgling and the bubbling of the water—even when it’s sounding like a faucet—all of that’s happening outside and not inside. You have to get your rest.

 

 

We had winds in Antarctica that blew so hard you couldn’t do anything. They didn’t last that long, luckily. But when we were in the Roaring 40s, when the storm came, the wind was coming [at] 50 to 70 knots. I had some extra holes in the steelwork that I did from bolting the solar panels. When the wind starts blowing like that, I thought I was in a train station; I couldn’t stop the noise with pillows over my head. So definitely after that storm, I went out and stuffed rags in the holes that I could find anywhere.

 

Pulling, pulling so hard. When I wasn’t sailing, I was sewing ’til I had chronic pain in my hands. And I would fall asleep and the pain in my hands would wake me up.

 

So I called on God, [whom] I imagined as those great Italian paintings: a sixty-five-year-old, well-muscled, bald man with a long beard. I said, “God, tell Jesus to heal this arm.” And then I felt Jesus take my arm and start massaging it. I saw his soft, beautiful face. I said, “God, tell Buddha to heal this arm.” Then I saw Buddha come and take this arm, start massaging it and healing it. Then the three of them came closer to heal me together. And they bumped heads. They started laughing together, and Buddha looked at me and winked.

 

The hatches in the boat have slides. They’re homemade and they’re not watertight. So if the boat’s going under water, water’s squirting in. got completely drenched by the water, and the water woke me up.

" Reid Stowe is no great adventurer. His three year driftathon was the equivalent of nautical polesitting. He ran into a ship right after leaving New York by not keeping a proper lookout. He should not be held up as a great sailor, but more of a scam artist trying to make money off of his silly "mars analagous mission". "

Put a pillow over your head? In light of this breakthrough technique in storm tactics, Peter Bruce and Adlard Coles need to update 'Heavy weather sailing'.

Departure date must be approaching. Must be getting chilly in the ferroyurt. Didn't they remove the stove as it wouldn't be necessary in the tropics?

 

No pronouncements of the spiritual, scientific and educational or tax deductible benefits of this exercise. No pre voyage tango parties. The 1000 day cast of support characters seems to have vanished. No Good News Broadcast or Harold Channer interviews. Stowe is off his game for this go round if the best he can do is a mid week gig at New Haven Parks and Rec.

 

Come on Stowe. Void Ho!!!!

redboat, one of his crew has written that the stated purpose of the voyage is to rape the rainforest of guyana for hardwood.

i would guess his 'greenie' pals might finally be disgusted by stowe's predatory nature. how can one spin this story where Reid would be a hero instead of a sleazy scavenger robbing a poverty-struck people of their most precious national resource?

if Stowe thinks smuggling wood will be any easier than moving his previous guyana cargo, he is in for a surprise.

protect the rainforest from shitty artist bumfks on the american end. the penalties for taking wood in situ will be more spontaneous i would imagine.

one senses the videographer hit Stowe-verflow; the camera backs up and for a vid about Reid, it's ironic he hit the cutting room floor.

Stowe's narcissism is really documented here because now we see the template he follows each and every time word for word. the 1000 day pre quel. its a formula. it's chilling how scripted, just insert new wife.

he has a new circle drinking the kook aid. that's how it works.

 

his wife and girlfriend are both in this one soybean. non deviating deviate activity there one might suppose? some people do not know how to change anything, even a single cell. labelling unadaptable rigid behaviors romantically, adorable peter pan is all part of the presentation. a little ejaculate steam and mirrors.

torturously long vid that perfectly captures the era and Reid cheating.

A Visit to the Sail Loft Friday, 04 November 2011

 

sail-loft1.jpg

 

Reid and crew went to the sail loft at City Island, NY to re-cut the sails that were donated to us. Our friend Sequoia, who graciously gave us a good portion of the equipment from his former 90 ft sailboat, also gave us his sails which needed to be customized to fit the schooner Anne. Paul the sail maker from Doyle Sails, was kind enough to allow us to use the sail loft with an industrial sewing machine and lend his expertise to the process of designing, cutting, shaping, and sewing the sails. After some initial drawings, measurements, taking into consideration usage (cruising, not racing) and areas of likely wear and chafe the sails were ready to be cut and reworked. Rachel operated the machine while Reid and Alex wrestled the many feet of Dacron material into position.

 

 

 

sail-loft-2.jpg

 

In one exhausting day, a new foresail and staysail was made. Reid was satisfied that we took full advantage of the short time we had at the sail loft. However, we would have to go with our old mainsail. The mainsail from the other boat was tall but not wide enough for the Anne and so it became our foresail. We continue our preparations….
