      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.

Now really, doesn't this just beg for a main page caption contest? I'll donate condoms just in case Reid lets off a "little steam." Hi Pip. Missed you...

good find red. From the manic stares, to the pretend use of tools... its all so funny, and yet so desperately sad. Paintscraping with a curved chisel. Randomly blow torching a rusted shackle off without burning its paint off. Reidiculous.

 

Fixed. What the heck is going on in that photo? Suppose you cut through the shackle in that spot... then what?

The local loft wants CASH to fix my old sails. How do I get in on the free shit and free poon deal :unsure:

 

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….

Is the little guy wearing a bike helmet?

 

Yes. I can't be 100% certain, but I also think it is on backwards! The retroreflective label usually goes at the back.

 

Also, why is wearing plastic bags on his feet under his boots?

You are probably right about the helmet. They are ussualy longer in the back to protect the back of the skull. This one sticks out farther in the front than normal.

I am in error. It looks backwards but it is not.

 

But I still don't get the plastic bags on his feet.

 

Must be because WEid doesn't allow anyone to use the head?

Yes, plastic bags are holding tanks. Wait til the guy in the NY Harbor pump out boat gets the call for those!

true, but usually its enough heat to take paint off. It helps if the flame is actually on or near the shackle.

still I suppose if you are sitting around for a thousand days with nothing to do, you wouldnt have time to do unnecessary maintenance, like grease shackle pins.

We used to wear plastic bags on our feet after tramping as it meant you could put dry socks on and still wear wet shoes, On a boat though it just seems stupid, but then again, so does everything this lot do

Oh, jebus. Marry this thread with that one and toss in a link to the "Blunt" thread, and this thing could have some legs. Toss in an Asian prawn recipe served with a fine Australian Shiraz from DT that must be eaten with a Spork whilst going DWFTTW.....and this thread could last forever. It might even spawn a new thread with a poll.

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.

 

 

OK, it's cold on a boat during NY winters but Stowe is used to that. Mission control and all his adoring and unconscionably generous "friends" are in NY. The support of Soanya's family is in NY.

 

Why would a poorly outfitted decrepit schooner dare to venture offshore to Guyana?

 

You got it Pip. Anything Stowe does is for his personal benefit and the reward at the end of the journey must be worth the risk and inconvenience. $$$$$$$ = drugs or wood or some commodity that he can swipe then turn for a handsome profit elsewhere. Perhaps it was more than appropriate that Stowe attend the Pirate Festival in Brooklyn.

 

If true, what will his idealistic crew do when they discover the ultimate purpose of the journey? We'll see them all in Federal Court.

Rut Roh.... The record is being challenged.

 

Article run through Google Translator ( Link) --

 

 

 

Segeln_1.jpg

 

The Austrian
skipper Wolfgang Guelfenburg
wants with his 25-meter catamaran "ENERGON" In September 2012, Venice,
1234 days
embark on a
long journey
across the oceans. In the more than three years, he will provide you with a special vegetable plantation and a bread oven itself.

 

 

 

Create prohibited

 

The previous world record is held at 1152 days from the Americans Reid Stowe. . Guelfenburg will circle in his world record run at least twice the earth without being country have contact. He must have sight of land, but neither create nor leave the ship.

 

"If I make three or four laps around the globe, it would be nice. We sail under the motto slowing down, so I will not force you to make maximum speed. I'm trying to materials and considered the matter of approaching "explains Guelfenburg.

 

Segeln_2.jpg

 

The skipper as a research object

 

The extraordinary thing Guelfenburg's adventure will be the participation of scientists. Scientific studies of the sea, environmental stresses and flow tests are only a small part of the research program. Also Guelfenburg even deliver as a research object during the three and a half years at sea, interesting values. The scientists from various academic institutions from Europe, Asia and America are brought into turnusses ships with transfer to the respective location of the research catamaran.

 

Autonomous self-sufficiency

 

Particular attention is paid to the sufficiency of the skipper. A special "small plantation" provides the time sailors with fresh vegetables and vitamins and mineralstoffhältigen sprouts. Foods are tested for long-term durability, finished mixes always provide fresh bread and pastries. Guelfenburg is also devoted to the production of cheese from dried milk powder. Many more experiments and tests are in preparation.

 

"The world does not revolve faster, just because we live in a society fast beige. We have forgotten how to deal with the elements! The project will lead us back to basics "Quote: Wolfgang GUELFENBURG

 

 

 

Bless him. He's going to make his own cheese.

 

 

Here we go again.

saw a show about the US south, and in it Nascar driver Michael Waltrip was discussing the statement "Bless his heart"

 

he said it was a euphemism for "he's an idiot"

 

as in - "He's gonna pick up that piece of lumber, and it's all covered in spiders, bless his heart"

Reids crew has gone crackers!! YCMTSU!!

 

 

The Doctor is on board!

Friday, 11 November 2011

 

dr.-krackers-(5).jpg

 

Dr. Kracker, the company that contributed some of the tastiest, crunchiest crackers to the 1000 Days voyage, has made another contribution for the Voyage to the Mystic Jungles of Guyana. The crew was excited to taste these famed whole grain crackers as they loaded the 250 boxes into the cargo hold. During the afternoon coffee break, the crackers come out with peanut butter and jelly. All agreed that they were a delicious addition to our daily meal plan. Dr. Krackers will be featured in the book we are writing tentatively titled Survival Food Stocking: A Proven Three Year Technique Without Re-Supply. Then it was back to work re-rigging, welding, hammering, drilling, and painting.

A Brand New Bowsprit! Thursday, 17 November 2011 new-bowsprit-37.jpg

 

The schooner Anne was involved in a collision with a freighter on day 15 of the 1000 day voyage. The bowsprit was bent back and had to be sawed off. We spent a month drifting while Reid made major creative repairs to the boat. The rest of that epic voyage was done with a disabled boat. Finally, after returning from the sea for over a year, we were able to get the materials and the expertise to construct a new bowsprit and bow pulpit. It was an exciting moment when the whole crew worked together to mount the new bowsprit, bolt the fittings on, and put the pulpit over it. We used the main gaff and a system of pulleys and ropes as a crane to hoist the metal structures into place. The next step was to attach the two head stays to the bowsprit. The bowsprit holds the head sails forward and allows the schooner a greater ability to sail into the wind.

 

In the midst of getting the bowsprit on but before the bow pulpit was put into place, we set up our digital video camera on a tripod and placed the tripod on a table on the shore to record the event. Suddenly a gust of wind blew the tripod with the camera still attached over the shore rail and into the river! Two of our crew endeavored to fish the camera and tripod out while the rest of the crew set the pulpit into place. We rinsed the camera with fresh water, dried it and stuck it in a bag of rice. Who knows if it will ever work again. Thankfully, we had a spare which is now our only video camera onboard. We missed recording the bow pulpit going on but the finished product is a sight to behold.

 

 

 

 

Now that that's done it's time to cast off and go ship hunting again.

City council: If we get the sheltered workshop to cobble you up a new bowsprit out of scrap and a couple of road workers to bring it over, will you finally get that POS OUT OF OUR CITY ?

Reid: Only if you paint it black. I wouldnt want a tanker to see it.

DAY 10

40° 45' 21" north

73° 59' 11" west

 

Wind. Calm. Like Me.

 

 

A New Bowsprit.

As we prepare the Schooner one of the last tasks was create my new erection. God and Buddha smiled on me during the last voyage, when a way wood ship struck us in the night and my erection was damaged. Never the less we patched it up as best we could and although bent to one side; it still performed its job when called upon and produced some remarkable results. Many hands helped raise my rejuvenated prodder and now the ship and I feel complete again. It is hard and strong and as I run my hands over it (as I frequently do) I feel its power and it points proudly in front of me. It brings me great pleasure and I hope each of my new crew will enjoy some time on it and share in the ecstasy of its existence. On the last voyage I spent many hours alone with it and although soy was not comfortable on the end of it I convinced her to go there several times. When she sees the new crew members enjoying it I am sure she will want to be part of it and I hope she will join the others on it.

It is strong enough to handle several of the crew at one time and I am prepared if anyone bumps into it in the dark.

 

The preparations continue.

Onshore Underwater Clean Up Saturday, 26 November 2011 andy-diving054.jpg

 

One of our crew members, Andy, is a professionally trained diver. Andy was happy to jump into the river and clean our underwater window which had clouded over with growth just from being docked on the river over the past year. While Andy swam down to find the window in the murky water, Rachel prepped lunch and hollered the location of various tools to the crew. Soanya waited by the underwater window to get the perfect shot. Carly got ready to hit “record” on the video camera and the rest of the crew was busy with rigging details on deck while keeping an eye and ear out for Andy. When Andy finally appeared in the window preceded by the light of his waterproof flashlight, the crew below got excited and little Darshen wiggled in front of everyone to take pictures with his pretend camera. Now the window is clean and ready to allow the sparkling blue light of the ocean into the interior of the schooner.

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 --

What kind of extensive repairs can they make to the schooner up a Guyanese river that they can't complete in the US? Is it a field trip to study and take many many samples of the exotic hardwoods of Guyana?

NYC Sailors Take to the High Seas on a Voyage to the Mystic Jungles of Guyana

November 28, 2011 By admin Leave a Comment

 

New York City artist and sailor Reid Stowe, (59) and photographer Soanya Ahmad (28),SINCE WHEN??? the couple who sailed DRIFTED the longest sea voyageTRAINCRASH in history are now preparing for another DEBACLE, this time to the jungles of Guyana with six NEW VICTIMS on their crew, most of whom have never been on the ocean before.,AND WILL PROBABLY NEVER STEP ON LAND AGAIN! They will depart THIS PLANET on Nov.30, 2011.

 

Their diverse crew will consist of nine people: six men, three females. After the Anne returned from her record breaking three year sail in June 2010, she was still seaworthy (TOO FUNNY TO EDIT)but in dire need of maintenance. A year and a half later the worn but proud schooner will finally get the attention she needs. The month long ocean adventure will take the Anne and crew up a jungle river in Guyana where extensive repairs to the 70 ft schooner Anne will be made and then the crew will sail through the Caribbean and back to NYC. The entire voyage will take six months putting their return in May of 2012.ahhh that's the plan---an ocean adventure in order to do an EXTENSIVE re-fit,,,and back in NY by may 2012 :blink::lol::lol:

 

The crew will work with the World Water Rescue Foundation (www.wwrf.org) to foster awareness about the sustainable uses of water. They will also explore archetypal roles group sex positions set in the context of the deep blue, sometimes stormy, Atlantic ocean and the dangerous yet ecologically rich mystic jungles of El Dorado.

 

Captain Stowe is a lifelong sea voyagersemen who built the Anne in 1978 in the front yard of his family beach house in North Carolina. Ahmad had no sailing experience and had never been on the ocean until she and Stowe departed land in 2007 to spend 1000 days non-stop at sea. But 306 days into their three year voyage Ahmad had to leave the boat due to being pregnant. She left the Anne holding the record for the longest continuous time a woman as been at sea without re-supply. Stowe returned to land two years later to meet his son for the first time and set a record for the longest time a person has been to sea without re-supplying, 1,152 days non-stop.

 

Rachel Jameison (26) grew up surfing in Ocean City, NJ but has never sailed on the ocean before. After a short run in the Air Force where she hoped to experience some adventure,kill some 'turbs',, but was given a desk job, she expects this voyage will “be a special chance to put down the adventure magazines and pick up my dreams of far away places learn about survival in the EXTREME

 

Carly Tyrens (24) from Brooklyn, NY is an artist/curator. “Not only is this a chance to experience a life changing adventure, but I also see this as an opportunity to growFLAIL personally and artistically.”

 

Alex Sanford (24) from Knocksville, Tennessee worked as a landscaper and a metal worker until a friend told him about this trip. “I love sailing but there aren’t many chances to get on a boat in Tennessee.”

 

Andy Cronin (28) from Kentucky works as a structural engineer in NYC. “I wanted to gain sailing experience and go on an adventure.”,,and the ANNE seems like a good place to prove my knowledge as a structural engineer!

 

Dustin Porta (26) from Pennsylvania is a vintner who has done some coastal sailing. He wants to “experience the big ocean and have moments of extended tantric meditation while at sea.”

 

Josh Grimm (21) from Pennsylvania worked at a small landscape business and is an avid flyfisherman. “I never heard of Guyana except some place called JONESTOWN. To go on a trip like this is an opportunity that you can almost NOT pass up.”

Look at the size of that crew. Not only some free labor, but I imagine there are some ATM cards in there as well.

 

I've still got my money on Abe Vigoda for the pool, even though he died 6 years ago right before Bea Arthur.

 

On a more solemn note - Leslie Nielsen kicked the bucket one year ago today. He died in a big white building with patients, but that's not important right now.

I guess this means that they were going to be kicked out on December 1st?

 

Instead it looks like they will be caught offshore by the approaching cold front on December 1st. Hope none of the things in dire need of maintenance break.

 

Didn't they remove the stove?

So what are they doing with the little tyche while they are out drifting about? Is he going to wait for Mom to come back two months from now, knocked up again? (She may have company this time around) Who is going to empty his boots?

tsk, tsk..hater.

simply an inconsequential detail..

not even a spot with the intrinsic charms of hoboken can contain a wandering spirit like Reid. guyana is chock a block with blind people, he is duty-bound in his quest to assist humanity to take them sailing.

so happens departure date was determined by a divine oracle, mr. bourgeois pig!

the world is full of fact checkers naysayers these days.

 

here is a news story from Ramsey Nj, google maps says that's 27 miles away from hoboken.

proximity alone is not enough to draw any conclusions, could be just a coincedence and the age listed is 4 years off from goodnews report which in spite of spelling two crew names wrong is always an accurate, trusted news source. couldn't find the outcome, the press dropped the story and new jersey doesn't appear to post mug shots.

sounds like bath salts:

hope this is a different 'andy' cause i wouldn't want to go offshore with this guy when he gets his hate on for cabinetry.

meet the crew!

 

crew-shot-31.jpg

 

..it is TRULY SAD to see this picture of the crew,about to depart into the northern atlantic in winter weather,most of them with ZERO time sailing,,let alone the conditions they are VERY likely to face.

HAVE THEY UPDATED THEIR LIFERAFT???

WILL THEY HAVE RELIABLE RADIO CONTACT??

DO THEY HAVE SUFFICIENT CLOTHING FOR WINTER CONDITIONS AT SEA???...ie survival suits <_<

 

..I feel VERY uneasy when I think of their prospects to survive anything but the most benign conditions............hopefully some kind of magic or FOOLS LUCK will keep them safe :huh:

 

..as their departure seemingly becomes imminent,,it becomes well beyond a joke.

....without some kind of attempted intervention,,I feel we ,as knowledgeable bystanders, somehow become complicit in the likliness of their demise! :(

 

...and what about the 3year-old Darshen.Is he too included in this ship-of-fools?

.....does he have a choice???

No longer concerned about teflon Stowe. Prior to and during his last escapade I was amazed at his disregard for safety and his luck at every turn. He continues to avoid the law, bob wherever he wishes in NY harbor and enlist the apparently blind support of others.

 

I hope this continues to be a comedy rather than a tragedy . As the father of two who are older than any of his crew I can't help but only wish for their safe return to land and that they aren't caught up in one of the lecherous schemes that Stowe invariably concocts. However until the unlikely storms, MOB or rig failure this will remain funny as hell.

 

Certified/serviced liferaft(s) for 9? Survival suits? Harnesses and tethers? Why would he need such with Mohammed and Jesus on either side?

So we have a person of suspect background, with a boat funded by scamming money out of people under the flimsy veil of helping the environment, crewed by a group of unemployable misfits from society’s fringes. The 'Captain' has no maritime qualifications, no regard for the safety of his crew , rams other ships and his only motivation is to avoid getting a real job and to fuel his towering, porcelain ego.

 

Hmmm. sounds familiar.

 

 

Competition time! Below are two identical pictures.

He just smashed the cabinets. He BOMBED his Mercedes with three 5-gallon paint buckets. I guess there are no second floor windows on the Sproutship, though.

aryan bitch schadenfreude? you'll get shanked if they think you've got a brainy heritage. capt lithium seemed to endorse that motive for one and all if anyone can remember that far back. the guy who smashed the cabinets mother (appears to be) a certified school therapist. his father (must be coincedental) has an online posted resume as a welder), andy's claim to fame. fill in the blanks or is the world funny like that..it often is?

an either way aside: how many 24 year olds do you know who own new mercedes?

bath salts are wreaking havoc, cheap man's gonxoo.

wonder what happened to reidos old pals? an ominous hush..

now reid 'assumes the position'*

..remember when he drove a new mercedes white rolls royce and was a player? those days are long gone. he's out of his league, he might even be the 'relative' good guy at this point. {shock}

the most valuable cargo on that boat is sad. that says it all to me.

huddle up impotently shamily. (shaman + family).

my biggest question mark is carly. is she a goner for the bad boys too? or just a dumb sap.

Occupy some river in Guyana?

 

Does anyone else see some larger connection here? I'm not suggesting there will be a pitcher of Kool-Aid crashing through the side of the boat to offer Darshen a little tooth rot, but the trip down there with the younger adults is a bit strange. Why no 30 or 40 somethings?

 

Being at the tail end of my 40 something, I'd guess the crew is 20's because they are young and stupid. I wish them safe passage and think we might actually get some unbiased insight into Mr. Stowe after the trip from a disgruntled passenger.

 

This could have legs.

The same David Carradine?

 

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Carradine

 

On June 4, 2009, David Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissôtel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumvit Road, in central Bangkok, Thailand.[6][7] He was in Bangkok to shoot his latest film, Stretch.[6] A police official said Carradine was found hanging by a rope naked in the room's closet,[76][77] causing immediate speculation that his death was suicide. However, reported evidence suggested that his death was the result of autoerotic asphyxiation. Two autopsies were conducted and concluded that the death was not caused by suicide.[78][79][80][81][82] The cause of death became widely accepted as "accidental asphyxiation".
