      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.

YOU ARE ALL ENTHRALLED WITH STOWE!

 

Considerably more enthralled with the "Starting Another Dart" thread, Sparky. Call me silly, but it appears somebody other than Weed is making a hand made boat. Granted, whacky materials, probably store bought, with the deck clearly lacking that classic 1973 Steinway baby grand soundboard patina most seek in a quality handmade boat. But handmade, presumably incorporating historic lessons learned from Maersk world record holders.

 

When you get done talking to yourself, please give a shout-out to Andy (via a Telex to Weed, if necessary and local telecom gear allows). Andy's last update was top notch stuff.

Stfu already tabass you homoerotic idiot.

 

 

So you personally find Tabman to be erotic for you in a homo way? Or possibly specifically his ass, as you're focused on that?

 

I have to call this "information overshare" on your part.

 

If you're like that, it's not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's a waste of space on the forum.

 

But I guess that never stopped you before. In fact, applying that concept would end your very existence.

the boat is unloaded, and miraculously, at the same time money is found to start "repairs", which doesnt focus on the rudder, it focuses on an internal rebuild.

The repairs include building new storage compartments.

Even though this is occurring up a river, miraculously power is found to operate power tools and run lights to do the work at night.

Reid is already preparing his alibi by not personally doing the work.

All the hallmarks of yet another smuggling operation.

As I understand it, the individual with Narcissistic Personality Disorder prefers to supervise rather than actally perform the work.

In this way, if the effort is successful, he/she can take credit for having "supervised".

If a failure occurs, then blame will be shifted to the person/people who actually did the work.

 

Additionally, the person with narcissistic personality disorder may:

 

•React to criticism with rage, shame, or humiliation.

 

•Take advantage of other people to achieve his or her own goals.

 

•Have excessive feelings of self-importance.

 

•Exaggerate achievements and talents.

 

•Be preoccupied with fantasies of success, power, beauty, intelligence, or ideal love.

 

•Have unreasonable expectations of favorable treatment.

 

•Need constant attention and admiration.

 

•Disregard the feelings of others, and have little ability to feel empathy.

 

•Have obsessive self-interest.

 

•Pursue mainly selfish goals.

Suspect $$$ were received, probably from the beneficiary of the hardwoods. Stumps and gnarly bits of hardwood are prized by many woodworkers, particularly those who fancy themselves "artists" as they can clean it up, accentuate the grain and unusually shape and command a fortune for as furniture, art , etc. So Weid takes a chisel, wacks the wood a couple of times, crates it and declares it "art", not protected as a pure hardwood import.

 

Father in law is a woodturner who now has two barns of wood, much of it, I would consider crap. But every month he attends a local woodturners meeting and brings along a couple of these "scraps" that they auction off to benefit the organization. Crazy money.

 

Just sayin. Would think every waking moment would be spent on the repair of the Schooner. Not art.

Stowe is a celebrity now?. Good God, Poon, you have completely lost it. He is the William Hung of the sailing world, the freak show exhibit in the dark tent at the circus. He is a Kardashian sister on a low budget reality tv series set in Gary, Indiana, the Vanilla Ice of the rap music genre.

Fixed it for you harpon. I especially liked your lecture on journalistic integrity. I laughed so hard.... (see below).

And here is some news for you harpon. There's a lot of people reading this forum, who are just the ordinary working joe, who crew on boats, vote labour and just cringe at your attempts to bring Russian Radio propaganda into this forum. Anybody would think that the Radio station doesnt want you either.. Probably something to do with lack of journalistic integrity huh...

 

You must be so conflicted, being both the pot AND the kettle. Hell you must argue with yourself non stop.

oh, and if you havent guessed it already, everything I say is my own opinion and not necessarily based in fact.

There you go, sue proof.

 

So back to the main entertainment, Harpon arguing with himself.

Harpon, you are the last person on the planet that should be giving lectures about sanity or journalistic integrity. In 2009, you made the mistake of admitting on here that you were ghostwriting the 1000 days site, and in frustration for not being paid for it, you admitted that you had engaged in a serious lapse of journalistic integrity. (see below). You also admitted being the ghostwriter and self proclaimed media guy on your facebook page. Realising what you had said, you then tried to conceal who you were and what you were doing, by locking your facebook page and by a number of name changes on here, not realising that a name change history is readily viewable.

 

You are a hypocrite of the first class. Honesty ? you dont know the name of the word. Your history of attempting to trade it for money is well documented.

 

Your grandstanding is laughable, but your anger and lapses into dark sexual inuendo, reflects a deeper psychosis that seriously needs some help.

Minor word fix: A "lapse" in journalistic integrity would require having had it in the first place.

 

Speaking of... if NS is considering a change of venue, perhaps she and Harpoon might hit it off. They could be quite the team.

 

Besides, you know what they say: "Save the whales, harpoon a fat chick!" :)

Sculpture in the Jungle Saturday, 14 April 2012 April 9, 2012 Supanam In the midst of surviving in the jungle, I have been creating tropical hardwood carvings from the local wood that I find. On my first voyage to Brazil in 1973 on my catamaran I made carvings from abandoned canoes. I shipped some of the carvings back home, but the biggest one, a boy riding a dolphin, I carried over the pontoons. When the weather got too rough, I sacrificed it to the Gods of the Sea. That act familiarized me with spirits in the world culture of man that dwell in the artistic creations of man and help us adapt and thrive on the earth as our souls venture into space. It has become a necessity for me to create art objects to aid our survival as we adventure into the unknown. Of course we are busy working on the boat. Now is the time that we must work to save the schooner. She needs and deserves it. After her epic voyage, she is worn out in every way and rebuilding an aging schooner is demanding work. It takes all my time and is a challenge for me after the physical feat of departing the terra firma longer than any man. I thought my time of extreme physicality was over and that I would never sculpt again. But the mystical spirits call me and visions of gods and goddesses appear in all the wood shapes I see and I must answer their call. On a full moon extreme low tide, as we landed our dinghy, we stepped out on an old smooth holey three foot wide black plank. Four of us pulled it up and sawed it up into four foot pieces as we hauled it up on the river bank. The first statement I made was cutting a big circle out of the plank. Much to my surprise, I found it was purple heart wood! I have had a love relationship with purple heart wood since 1971 when the solo sailor, Klaus, showed me the purple heart wood from Guyana in the interior of the little cutter he built on the beach in Bequia. When I sailed to Bequia a few years later, I began carving in purple heart. Now we see the jungle through a polished circle and are taken around the world to zen-like spaces. A praying goddess subtly appears in what looks like flames coming out of the circle. I have several more pieces in progress, both on the shore and on the schooner. The tall slender form of a mystical creature emerges from a piece of heavy mora wood. Can you imagine that I actually hear and sea in my mind’s eye the jungle around me thank me for carving its wood and lifting its presence above domestic and commercial uses towards eternal callings. This is part of what compels me to create even when the realities of life and the huge job of rebuilding the schooner overwhelm me.4.9.12-hole-sculpture-12.jpg4.9.12-hole-sculpture-10.jpg

Though, he may sound a bit odd, the sculptures shown here actually look pretty good. The guy's different alright. I like him. A modern day artist/sailor/adventurer/explorer we need more of them and less strictly fast as you can go racing sailors in plastic production round the buoys with the boys boats. Variety is what makes life interesting, ain't it you Stowe obsessed hell thread hangers?

Nothing wrong with sailing and exploring, Poon. Expecting other people to fund it is another thing entirely, especially when you don't follow through on your promises. Grandiose proclamations about all the wonderful things you are doing for humanity are even worse.

I just drop in on occasion to see if there's anything worth Photoshopping or making a sarcastic comment about. SA could have a thread about "Mothballs in Grandma's Closet Faster Than the Moths" and the same creative fucks would congregate on that thread.

 

You take all this shit way too seriously.

When you get done talking to yourself, please give a shout-out to Andy (via a Telex to Weed, if necessary and local telecom gear allows). Andy's last update was top notch stuff.

You're talking to yerself now, wtf ya think I am yer intermediary to the Hovian universe? Try giving your shout out all by yourself. See if you can.

Telex and local telecom gear eh? Back to the crack are ya? You black?

 

It will clearly come as a surprise to an ignorant racist such as yourself to learn Blacks have moved on to iPhones, not to mention presidencies of significant countries.

 

That being the case, it will undoubtedly burst your racist bubble to know whites such as yourself easily account for the majority of crackheads, dumbfuck.

 

My comment referred to Weed's operation, as indicated by "Telex to Weed". Weidiculous, I understand, as Weed's texting capabilities probably aren't that advanced yet.

 

Granted, Weed does cut a pretty decent circle in purpleheart with a jig saw, assuming that isn't a snapshot of an art project Darsh completed at day care.

Never mind. Just figured it out....

you can bet that he didnt ask anyone first before he helped himself to the "äbandoned canoes" or the jetty steps of this latest fiasco. More power tool use without electricity huh.

Hell, I put a whole tree through a mulcher this morning, but Im sure the world doesnt want to know about that. The difference is, it was my tree, my mulcher and my electricity.

I didnt nick it.

 

So why on earth does he think the world would gape in wonder, at what can be done in 5 minutes with scrap wood full of termites/ borers, a jigsaw and a drill mounted wire brush ?

 

ho hum. Go ahead and put a spin on it Harpon, for gods sake. You know you want to... Its as boring as hell like it is...

It has become a necessity for me to create art objects to aid our survival as we adventure into the unknown.

 

Of course we are busy working on the boat. Now is the time that we must work to save the schooner. She needs and deserves it. After her epic voyage, she is worn out in every way and rebuilding an aging schooner is demanding work. It takes all my time and is a challenge for me after the physical feat of departing the terra firma longer than any man. I thought my time of extreme physicality was over and that I would never sculpt again. But the mystical spirits call me and visions of gods and goddesses appear in all the wood shapes I see and I must answer their call. On a full moon extreme low tide, as we landed our dinghy, we stepped out on an old smooth holey three foot wide black plank. Four of us pulled it up and sawed it up into four foot pieces as we hauled it up on the river bank.

 

The first statement I made was cutting a big circle out of the plank. Much to my surprise, I found it was purple heart wood! I have had a love relationship with purple heart wood since 1971 when the solo sailor, Klaus, showed me the purple heart wood from Guyana in the interior of the little cutter he built on the beach in Bequia. When I sailed to Bequia a few years later, I began carving in purple heart. Now we see the jungle through a polished circle and are taken around the world to zen-like spaces. A praying goddess subtly appears in what looks like flames coming out of the circle.

 

I have several more pieces in progress, both on the shore and on the schooner. The tall slender form of a mystical creature emerges from a piece of heavy mora wood. Can you imagine that I actually hear and sea in my mind’s eye the jungle around me thank me for carving its wood and lifting its presence above domestic and commercial uses towards eternal callings. This is part of what compels me to create even when the realities of life and the huge job of rebuilding the schooner overwhelm me.

...On my first voyage to Brazil in 1973 on my catamaran I made carvings from abandoned canoes. I shipped some of the carvings back home, but the biggest one, a boy riding a dolphin, I carried over the pontoons. When the weather got too rough, I sacrificed it to the Gods of the Sea. That act familiarized me with spirits in the world culture of man that dwell in the artistic creations of man and help us adapt and thrive on the earth as our souls venture into space.

 

Oooga boooga. I guess the Spirits jumped out of the boy and dolphin when he chucked them overboard and said, "WTF??? We're not going to help you adapt or thrive or get so high you think you are in space!"

Why would he return to Long Island City?? Jesus and Mohammed put valuable pieces of hardwood at his fee, Darshen is away during the day being socialized, he has many helpers to restore the boat, gather the gift woods from the heavenly mystical forests and Soanya's burden is "housekeeping on the boat and communication".

Stowe's sculpture is a temporary escape from the enormous job of rebuilding the Anne. The amazing part is that he's doing it on a limited budget and scarce resources. Never underestimate Stowe, he has an uncanny ability to get where he wants to go!

Looks like the Teredo worms have done a fair bit more carving on that piece of wood than Reid has. Personally, I don't rate his art - his technique is amateurish, and his rationale is gibberish. His art is a bit like a cargo-cult, he goes through the motions without knowing what it is he's doing, except perhaps attempting to make a fast buck off people with more money and less sense than he has (OTOH, quite a lot of artists do this).

 

I'm more interested in the piece of wood he found - a 3' wide plank of anything is highly unlikely to be recent, it has marks that indicate that it used to have some sort of ironwork attached to it (possibly hinges or banding of some sort), and the teredo indicates that it's spent some time in salt water, but probably not for at least a few years. It may have had some sort of archaeological significance, but as he's taken it out of it's context and sawn it up to play at sculpture, the world will never know.

It is truly amazing that this group can take the most innocent act of picking up an old piece of driftwood and turn it into an archeological crime committed by Stowe. YCMTSU!

 

In my view the sculpture is a decent piece of work, better than most I've seen of this type. I like the relationship of the circle to the rest of the piece.

Our opinions of Reid's art will have to differ.

 

I admit it's not the greatest of archaeological treasures, but there was definitely information to be gained by knowing about what it was and where it was, and that information has now been lost. As I don't rate Reid's art work, I regard that information as being of significantly greater value to humanity (I've also been conditioned from three years at university sharing houses with archaeology students, who can get a bit worked up about stuff like that).

When you get done talking to yourself, please give a shout-out to Andy (via a Telex to Weed, if necessary and local telecom gear allows). Andy's last update was top notch stuff.

You're talking to yerself now, wtf ya think I am yer intermediary to the Hovian universe? Try giving your shout out all by yourself. See if you can.

Telex and local telecom gear eh? Back to the crack are ya? You black?

 

It will clearly come as a surprise to an ignorant racist such as yourself to learn Blacks have moved on to iPhones, not to mention presidencies of significant countries.

 

That being the case, it will undoubtedly burst your racist bubble to know whites such as yourself easily account for the majority of crackheads, dumbfuck.

 

My comment referred to Weed's operation, as indicated by "Telex to Weed". Weidiculous, I understand, as Weed's texting capabilities probably aren't that advanced yet.

 

Granted, Weed does cut a pretty decent circle in purpleheart with a jig saw, assuming that isn't a snapshot of an art project Darsh completed at day care.

 

..

Never mind. Just figured it out....

 

That's the replacement rudder, correct?

 

 

So sorry, you didn't get that the are you black crack was purely rhetorical and sheer sarcasm. everybody knows that practically all sailing anarchists are white sunburned in summer red neck wasp crackpots.

Too busy working to cover my nut. So busy, in fact, that I have time to devote to art. I spend 14 hours a day watching other people work on my boat while I run a circle with a jigsaw and fuck up nature's own work.

 

I appreciate Reid's appreciation of mother nature growing a tree, but I wouldn't take credit for the knots and gnarly.

A couple years ago I had the honor of calming down the skipper before the start. He was concerned that for the first time in years, there were not any women on board. I assured him that the EEOC would be fine, as we had two black guys on board.

Another update from the Cheesemonauts: (note this update is unique for its absence of dragon hats, mystical this-and-that and the usual nonsense. It almost makes them sound like a normal family doing normal things.... except the bit about doing the work of titans while someone else is fixing the boat and serving the meals)

 

Every morning of the week, Darshen and daddy row across the river and walk through Nato’s boatyard. DArshen has his own paddle custom made with his name on it. He proudly helps to paddle ashore. We were inspired by the local Native Americans who paddle their families under colorful sun umbrellas. Even the smallest girls help paddle surprisingly efficiently like their parents. We’ve seen only one canoe on the Supanam river. Most of the river boats are made from chain-sawed planks, but the motor boats used to ferry people are quite finely made with bows that swoop way up.

 

Work boats carry sawed planks down the river. Barges of logs float down the river using cross-trees as pontoon arms to keep the heavier than water logs from sinking. A five foot long snake swims briskly againstthe strong current next to the schooner lifting his head right out of the water to try to find his way onboard. There is an eight foot tide that would normally make getting onshore a muddy affair, but split and warped planks spill out of Nato’s boatyard and gives us a sort of ramp we can walk on. This is where many village ladies sit waist and chest deep doing their laundry in big brightly colored buckets while their children play and splash around them. This is the colorful jungle river we cross many times a day.

 

When Darshen and I get on land, we borrow Nato’s bicycle and head off to nursery school. Everybody says “Good Morning” so we say “Good Morning” twenty times on the way to school. It surprises me how many kids call out “Darshen” when they see us. He is a well known boy in town and is oftern called “Ocean” because he came in on a boat from the ocean.

 

We are the only people who live on a boat here. In fact, we haven’t seen any signs of anyone else living on a boat since we got to Guyana. It is not easy, but we love living on the water and that makes us unique.

 

I feel that I do the work of titans and I tire as lunch arrives. I row my young crew of workers ashore, jump out, hop on the bicycle, and ride off to pick up Darshen from school. He will be four in July and we see him experiencing the things of life for the first time. This evening, we went up the steps of his friend Raj’s house and found him watching cartoons. I wasn’t there to hear, but he was going to ask Raj to come out and run with him. Within minutes they and other village kids were running in circles chasing each other and letting out high pitched squeals of joy.

 

I interrupted the fun to get Darshen home before dark. He insisted I carry him because there were too many hopping toad frogs. I put his life jacket on and rowed him home to Mommy for a big dinner in the cockpit and a bucket bath from the river before bed.

Well, compared to drifting for 3 years doing absolutely nothing, including from the looks and results of it absolutely no boat maintenance, he probably does feel he is working like a titan now.

 

I mean, what he describes above could tucker a fellow plumb out.

after a 4 year reprieve, welcome to the world of childrearing where even idle unemployable grifter narcissists have to HTFU and grow up. Another 12 months and Darshen will be old enough to be exploited fully as child labour, without the need to go to school, just like the other kids who dont go anymore, now that Reid has lured them away from their books. The community (especially the teacher) must really appreciate having a boat demolition site exploiting and corrupting child labour, polluting and blocking their river, right on their doorstep. Still waiting for an explanation of where the mystical funds have come from....

You really give Reid too much "credit" and "power" over your world timbo and doggie et al. When he remains with Soanya raising Darshen in his unique lifestyle, sharing with him the very different life they've chosen, travelling the watery world while living aboard the man's large and unique schooner, your only assessment of his responsible commitment to child raising and continuing to keep his schooner seaworthy, is to proclaim him a sort of evil pied piper, destroying the innocence of children, raping the land, and acting in ways which appear to be products of over eager imaginations by some sickly obsessed deliberately distorted and manipulative minds on here. You have taken your critcism of Stowe to new levels of psycho dreaming.

 

Makes me wonder if any of you guys have ever explored anywhere on a boat with a family where few others have gone. Doubtful.

 

Back to weekend regattas, attempting to beat out all the other guys, drinking beer on the manicured lawns, and enjoying a life of privilege without compassion nor concern just condemnation for any who may have less, having chosen a distinctly different path.

That definition perfectly fits the core attitude of this site towards Stowe, his family, acquaintances and friends, although in reality it would seem a more mild criticism than is warranted.

That's the best log entry I've read in years. If I ignore the self aggrandizing "work of titans" thing, I can see a proud and loving father. It is refreshing to see him focus on his son. Perhaps he's realizing that his true legacy lies not in the Guiness Book of World Records, but in spending quality time with Darshen and raising a descent kid.

 

Good on Reid.
