I haven't heard of this type of cruise before, if it is in real then i would like to go for it. It will be very adventurous and even i want to know that how this experience will be, I have some friend

So you are saying you can find a lawyer willing to INVEST his or her time and money over YEARS persuing a frivolous lawsuit on contingency with you suffering ZERO damages other than you have been the butt of parody? Good luck with that. Remember these letters IMHO you are a tossin wanker

Forget the radar. Tell the search party to bring mice or rats. They should smell all the parmigiano from at least a hundred miles...

 

:lol: Cheese scow dog with extra large nose on the case...

 

BTW: I have been swamped today getting ready to hit the road... BUT, again no sign of Reid...

Three tries to find them: First the location from the position report on their page within a couple of hours of the report... Second based upon what Bloodygaza calculated... Third upon the last known good location that we could find.

 

They can't stay on this wild goose chase forever so they have been told to head back in. I can fill in more details about the wild goose chase later, but have to get on the road now.

I've been lurking end enjoying this thread for a while now, didn't bother to register because I had nothing new to add to the discussion and you haven't exactly been very welcoming to newbies lately, though I am less than surprised considering said newbies.

 

Now it seems this topic is reaching more mainstream circles and nobody else seems to have stumbled upon this little video:

 

 

I hope this linking thingy works, if not paste

or go to youtube and search for "reid stowe" and click on the newest post (3 days ago)

Only the first about three minutes are about this topic, however the anchorgirl Julie doesn't seem to be too impressed with this voyage (judging by her choice of words and smile) and she even mentions this this site and forum as sources.

LMAO!! they actually linked this on their 1000daysatsea blog.

Dang, I so hoped they would find them! There's intence drama in the meeting and the offer to be rescued. I can feel the electricity in the air, Sayonara quickly glancing at Reids stern face and then down for a long while fighting an inner fight before answering. The rescuing crew are holding their breaths and then........ Pictures!

I hesitate to take much of this seriously, as it's way less fun that way.

 

But many (most) large ships now have a Voyage Data Recorder (VDR) that records *everything* from radar picture to gyro, GPS, AIS, VHF, even records what's said on the bridge. If the Master knew he had a collision, or a complaint of one, the normal procedure is to save the VDR data, because most of them tape back over themselves after 12 hours, or 24, or 4 days, or some time period depending on manufacture.

 

Don't know if this ship had one, or if the Dunedin is even the one. But something hit that bowsprit, and the lookout on the ANN and whatever other vessel it was, was pretty awful.

Cowsy Girl,

The gramatically correct sentence would be:

"I do it all in the interest of fact-based journalism and public education."

 

Comma before the "and" makes everything that follows it a fragment, plus, sentences should, ideally, unlike your life, have subjects and objects in agreement or, ideally, even in existence. Your seventh-grade sentence structure blies your class origins.

But fascists don't need no school, does they?

"at sea. Then they lost both their forestays and roller furling in the collision at sea where the heavy steel 20' bowsprit was mangled in half by a dark hulled three hundred foot freighter in the obsidian night."

 

Yeah so I went to the blog...

 

Dark Hulled Ship... You are aware, Mr Boombastic, that Maersk Ships are almost a Powder Blue. Could have been an another Carrier all together. Perhaps a Liberian Ship smuggling what ever they smuggle with no lights on claiming to be a Maersk Ship.

 

Guys I think this is either a Troll or one of our own as I can't imagine Reid having such a loyal fan to think what we say is actually important.

Sadly, no.

The M. Dunedin was once German flagged, therefore, according to the Rule of Former Nazi Countries allowed to rise up again, it is BLACK. Maersk too cheap to buy the paint for a redo.

Look, Reid doesn't exactly take the best care of his fine craft. He has an old 20' long bowsprit that was on the boat during earlier voyages from which he flew a nice small hanked on jib. After wanting roller furling for over 20 years he finally gets a drum and has his supporters at Doyle provide a large rollerfurled jib that looks to be easily twice the size of the previous jib. Compare the new sail with the small jib in old photos of Anne. The only way roller furling works is if you have enough tension on the halyard so Reid mounts the tack near the end of the 20'sprit and cranks it on. The boat bobs around NY harbor on roidian harbor excursions and nothing happens. Now back at sea after several days the physical forces conspire with bobstay and/or sprit weakness and it lets go.

 

Might have happened near Maersk freighter. Master sees slow moving/nonmoving radar target or even sees Anne with headsail flogging and hails on VHF. No problem so he sails on.

 

But Reid knows his boat and the sea better than anyone. The last thing his ego and public persona could suffer would be admitting such a failure or miscalculation so let's pin it on the freighter.

 

Too bad the folks at Doyle probably wouldn't be too interested in discussing the original sail and the replacement they sold or donated.

one of the (many) things that has really been bothering me is this:

is it really a good idea to eat fish out of another fish's guts? it just doesn't seem like a good idea to me. obviously these two dumbasses claim to have done it and they didn't die yet...but damn! when i've been offshore (for deliveries) we often fish. and we have caught fish that had fish in their guts, but we have only used them to bait the lines to catch more fish. also, wouldn't bringing a book on offshore fishing or fishing while cruising have been prudent? we've got one and bring it with when we are planning to troll while delivering a boat. the info in these books is unbelievably helpful, from recommendation on lures, setting up lines, even what fish you should and shouldn't eat and how to clean them properly.

to me it is just another piece of evidence on how woefully unprepared reid was for this voyage. i mean really! who depends on fish for their sustenance yet doesn't bother to learn how to catch them before leaving for a 1000 days?

Does anyone know someone that works at Lloyd's of London? Most all vessels of that type are insured through Lloyd's. The ship's captain would have had to report to Lloyd's and notify them that there was an accident.

To be honest, I couldn't care less anymore about WHY the cheese-sprit broke.

There is no possible explanation that doesn't include stupidity, so let us all just agree that poor seamnship = limp spar :o

Of more interest to me is why they can't be found. Where are they REALLY?

Elle, this is Reid we're talking about, and the main reason for this particular forum is because of how ill-prepared he was for this voyage and what terrible shape his boat is in (a couple minor details: it leaks, it has about a foot of barnacles and 'fuzz' on the bottom -- which are probably keeping the tub from disintegrating :lol: ), so for him to have anything logical like a book on fishing would be so unnecessary for him...remember, he knows everything. Way back when, Sayonara was wishing she had a book on the heavens so she could learn what stars she was looking at. What fucking sailor who is going around the world doesn't have a map of the skies? They have fois gras but no books on fishing! And their life raft is below dack wrapped in saran wrap or whatever! And the three fish - they just ate them a couple days ago so maybe they're puking their brains out today. :P
