Couple Cruise for 1000 Days


Recommended Posts

Somebody needs to give Haji, Bowgirl and crew a heads up :lol:

 

As I recall, you were the one who suggested we plot an intercept course!

 

 

We did see another sailboat out there one night, which got us a bit anxious, but it turned out to be a +/- 40 footer from St Maarten bound for Horta. Bruce chatted with them on the VHF. Our collective relief was palpable. :lol:

 

 

I wish the 1000 day voyagers safe passage - no one wants a mishap out there. It's a big, deep ocean out there and a lot of nothing/no one close by.

I hope you will all join me in transmitting a telepathic message to Soanya:

 

SWEETHEART GET TO THE NEAREST PORT AND GO HOME.

 

I mean it.

Sorry LH, but I have tried for a long time to perfect my ability to transmit telepathic messages to women, to no avail. Something seems to get lost in translation. What left my head as "Get The Hell Off of That Boat!" would probably be received as "Could you pick up some beer on your way home?" and be met with even greater consternation than that from which she already suffered.

 

It's better that I keep my jedi mind tricks to myself.

I do not know how to judge experience, but most people who do long trips seem to have an inventory and know right where stuff is stored. They seem to rummage about in the hold.

 

In addition day 39 of a 1000 day trip would not be a good time to discover "dressed in my rain pants (only water resistant it turns out, not waterproof)".

 

Gear check anyone? No suggestion they have spare foul weather gear for almost three years of sailing.

"On a gaff-rigged schooner, like the Anne, the rigging is not tightened as much as it is on a modern sailboat. When she sails, the rigging on the side away from the wind (leeward) is always a little looser than the windward side. "

 

This guy really is stupid. Has he never been sailing before?

There are hundreds of little gestures that make our lives rich. We just have to remember to make them and appreciate those gestures when they come our way

 

I have two thoughts on this thread

 

1) if you all treated your crew they way he treats his, you would not have as much trouble getting crew. As an exercise, buy a yoga mat, sit on it with your foredeck person, close your eyes and hum together for a while and then ask which of your gestures make his life rich, if he cannot name some reflect on the errors of your ways, sing kubi-ya togethe, hug and promise to be more sensitive to each others needs.

 

2) who is nuts here, we sitting in our offices obsessing about him, or him drifting around on the ocean with a babe twenty years his junior laying under the stars?

So 50 days down...

 

only 950 days to go...

 

Let's see... averaging 4x/day that's 3800 condoms required to be in storage.

 

 

Thats assuming the old man can even put out that much :P A better calculation would be how much viagra they have in stock! :lol:

Careful, sounds kind of like a scene out of "Brokeback Foredeck" to me.

50 days and 209 posts .....

 

so averaging a little over 4 per day, we should be at about 4,000 if this goes the distance. What's the record?

This voyage is so very painful to watch.

Every photo I see some part of the boat that is an accident waiting to happen, or something sharp where it shouldn't be, or some cluster of line that is supposed to be a knot. Everything is jury rigged by a FukTard.

They've been sailing for 50 days and they aren't even near Cape Verde, let alone being about 4,000 miles farther. What's his average speed? 2 knots?

And then he boasts about catching his edible first fish after 4 weeks at sea! Then shows a photo of the abortion he created by hacking up the fish with what must have been a dull knife. What was he catching before, un-edible fish? Or were they unedible because he hacked them up into mealy bitts.

Anyone in Britian making odds on their success?

From their website:

 

Mission Control mistakenly plots SchoonerAnne near Mecca

What a difference a minus sign can make. I was plotting Anne's current position and I omitted the minus sign before the longitude (which indicates West longitude). When I checked the Google Map for the day, she appeared in the middle of Saudi Arabia, not far from Mecca :-)

 

Now this is just sweet. :wub: Wouldn't you just love to have these people as your lifeline to the world! ;)

He'd have to be shitting himself about taking that tired out hulk into the southern ocean. Bad weather will be the test of the venture and so far they've spent their time in benign trades.

I asked about the collision on the 1000 days blog, Here's the q&a

 

 

 

HCB said...

I asked if everyone is still convinced they collided with a ship because the more I think about it the more it doesn't seem likely. A ship as big as Maersk Dunedin travelling at any appreciable speed is displacing a lot of water very quickly. That makes big waves at the bow and stern that I would think would have caught them - especially if they hit the side of the ship with enough force to bend a steel bowsprit. Even without the wave, the momentum would have carried Anne to the point she'd have turned and slid down the side of the ship - damaging a lot more than the bowsprit.

 

So - I guessed it was really a container they hit but that makes no sense either - they would have to be travelling awfully fast to do that kind of damage to the steel bowsprit.

 

So - I wonder if what really happened is the forestay got overloaded when they were rocking and rolling on some big seas or swells.

 

If I'm completely wrong - please tell me how it is the Anne could be travelling so fast that she would break her bowsprit on the side of a ship and simply bounce back without any further damage. And how it was that Soanya simply woke up to the noise - as opposed to being thrown out of bed when the boat slammed into the freighter and bounced back after breaking the bowsprit. Remember, for example, that when a vessel goes hard aground it tosses everyone around pretty violently. I don't think Soanya would have simply heard the three bangs and woke up wondering what it was. There'd have been no doubt they'd hit something.

 

Thanks

the maersk ship hit the bowsprit

in the middle of the night

 

why not relax now and enjoy the ride?

 

it's not the first time a huge ship has taken out the bowsprit of a slowly moving sailing vessel

 

there's truly no reason to obsess about it...

 

fair winds,

by the way, the reason the sail is orange is that it was probably made as a storm jib. Reid said it was made out of heavy canvas, so, that makes sense.

 

The reason they make them orange is that orange is the most visible color in all ranges of light (or darkness). That is why life jackets are orange etc. If it is stormy enough out to put up your storm jib, then you can use all the extra visiblity you can muster.

I've been following this guy's blogs. This guy makes no sense. I wondered, how can someone who is properly prepared for this voyage, say he "will get around to fixing this and that" when he has all the time in the world? He blames everything on the collision, and then takes his sweet time to repair a ripped sail because, "I have so many other things to do..." Maybe it's just me, but since that main is a pretty important sail and the means of propulsion, wouldn't getting out a needle and thread or some sail tape take priority? His methods are baffling here. Then, it got better- today's post: http://1000days.net/home/index.php?option=...0&Itemid=71

 

"Lastly, we were not able to haul out for two years before we left on this journey. It would have been nice, but funds were not permitting. We have a heavy barnacle growth from the Hudson River and quite a few places on our side where the bottom paint was rubbed off by tires and pilings on our industrial pier from the current and ferryboat wakes. (We even have some smashes I dealt with using underwater epoxy.) Now goose-neck barnacles are multiplying. I have a big job ahead of me when I get caught up on deck work and we are becalmed in warm water. I'll swim under the schooner with my mask, fins, and snow shovel and scrape the bottom as clean as I can. When we really get into the trade winds more mileage and a straighter course will show up on the chart. "

 

HOW the f*** do you plan 3 years at sea without getting a bottom job?! Hell, if my boat was going to sea for three years, she'd be hauled out, sanded, resealed, quite a few coats of bottom paint, prop/prop shaft inspected, new zincs, new packing in stuffing box.... The list goes on. These things are done as part of regular maintenance by people NOT planning world cruising excursions. I'm scratching my head here. Gee, wonder WHY they are going so frigging slow- they are dragging a reef. Of course, it was not his fault- "funds were not permitting.." This leads to more confusion- they got pretty much everything for free- including labor. Sponsors gave them money. What did they do with it?

 

This whole thing sounds like a total scam to me. If I had enough vacation time, I would take out my boat (only 30', but in much better shape and a new bottom job) and see if these jokers are really out there where they claim to be. Something's awfully suspect... Just my opinion, of course...

Did he say a Snow Shovel?

I know, I know, everyone packs a snow shovel on an extended cruise.... He must have been watching "Deadliest Catch."

 

Back to Reid's whining, I was on his site, looking at all the sponsors and THIS is pretty interesting:

 

"E Paint Company

E Paint Company donated 15 gallons E Paint SN-1 antifouling paint to keep Reid and the Schooner Anne sailing smooth for 1000 days. E Paint SN-1 is single component copper-free bottom paint. E Paints control biofouling by the combination of patented photoactive technology with an environmentally preferred booster biocide. Reid and the Schooner Anne will be proving that you can choose to be environmentally responsible without sacrificing performance! www.epaint.net "

 

 

So what happened to that 15 gallons of bottom paint?! I'm confused as to why he could not afford a haul out- he would have only had to pay for the lift and yard fees. Anti-fouling paint is the most expensive part of the process....

REID DEBT?!? Yeah, let me pay off your credit cards and bookee. This is nuts. People are giving this man money.

 

So here's the plan: My hubby and retire from our Uncle Sam in 6 years. Since we're both Iraq-nam veterans, we can use this as our plea for people to fund our permanent retirement of sailing. We need a house in Costa Rica, too, with deep water access. You, too, can be part of the dream! To ensure our cruising kitty gets bigger, send us money now so we can add a sunroom onto our house, and buy gaudy stuff for the boat! We also can use your manaual skills to keep our brightwork looking good on the boat, and mow our yard. Mast climbing is a plus! Si hablo espanol!

actually he's already been through some gales and a storm in the north atlantic on this trip w/soanya. the boat's built for heavy weather, she's survived a 100 knt blow in the antarctic and multiple times round the Horn. She's a heavy weather ship dimwit. :)

1000 day cruise would be cool if it involved doing what most people would consider worth while - say for instance stopping at all the various places in the world most people wish they could visit?

Sailfastandfree,

 

Dude, you're on fucking crack. The whole point of this rant is that this guy borders on the criminally negligent. And for the record, some of us have far more offshore miles that you think (and some of us in yachts of 50+ years age) so I suggest you watch where you're flinging poo monkey boy.

 

The boat is a mess. WuWei makes the point that this boat is an accident waiting to happen. I couldn't agree more. You look at the pictures and all you can think (if you have sailed offshore or not) is these fuckers are dead. The rig is a botchjob waiting to kill someone. The running rigging is a total pig's breakfast. There is enough crap scattered around on the interior to kill everything on board with flying debris in event of a rollover.

 

You should try to remember that as Captain of any vessel it is your primary responsibility to insure that your vessel is safe and well prepared for any condition which you are likely to encounter and to make every provision for the safety of your vessel and your crew.

 

This dipshit has done none of this and he has willfully put his vessel (which is clearly in no condition for such a voyage) and his crew at great risk.

 

If I ever suggested a stunt like this with my wife I would hope to god my friends would talk some sense into me and at least my wife before I got one or both of us killed. Who knows if in the last three years the zincs dissolved and the wood in the hull began to decay in harbor and showed signs of delignification (my hull required new garboards when this happened). What happens if there is delignified wood and he hits something? No haul out before departure? Negligence. Full stop.

 

If they ever encounter and real weather they are going to be well and truly fucked and I just hope no one gets killed. They have certainly done everything they can to make serious injury or death a certainty.

 

This whole thing sounds like a total scam to me. If I had enough vacation time, I would take out my boat (only 30', but in much better shape and a new bottom job) and see if these jokers are really out there where they claim to be. Something's awfully suspect... Just my opinion, of course...

I don't have the balls to fly around in the world in some random airplane stolen from a junkyard that runs on 3 cylinders, climb Mt. Everest in a speedo and flip-flops, ride down I-95 at night on a unicycle, or try and sail for 1,000 days on a P-O-S that is lucky to not sink at the dock.

 

There are balls and then are is no fackin brain :angry:

oh lord keep me far from these aholes upon the wholesome sea, please!

 

 

The guy's not on crack - he doesn't have the ten bucks to buy it with and his buddy has taken off with the girl he lusts after. this is the same clown who calls himself chuckx and scooterx and anonymous when he posts on the 1000 days blog. Take a look at the day 55 entry on their blog.

 

That boat is nowhere near an ocean. they hit a container on the way out of NYC and have parked it. SailFartandFizz posts under a lot of different names to make it look like something's going on but all it really is is a scam - the guy owes a lot of money, grabs a dumb chickie and pretends to go away where creditors can't follow him. they're holed up somwhere camping on the wreck until stuff blows over. Then SailFartandFizz thinks they'll call for him.

 

Like you say SailFart - go away - let the breeze distribute you over the wholesome sea - it can take a little more greenhouse gas. It's clear you've never even been on a jet ski. Much less had to figure out how to make a sailboat sail.

I'm still really mixed up over this SA Anarchy card thing you guys. Why didn't anyone tell me about them?

Oh sweetheart.

I can make you one and mail it to you.

Or you can join the SAYC.

Search out thread(s).

Good luck.

How many times has this hippie scamster made it on the SA front page? That in itself is a pitiful statement..........unless it is true Anarchy? Maybe our beloved Ed is going to embark on a 1000 day Pacific voyage in an FT10 with one of the progressive chiquitas from the radio station.

man, the paranoids have propagated since the bush adminstration began. i suppose it keeps the pain outta watching the country go down in flames in iraq & afghanistan losing to the likes of the terrible taliban and archaic anarchist alqueda.

 

if we had faked the moon landing on a movie set, don'tya think they woulda pretended to be hanging out on mars with ahnold and sharon by now in a new and gorgeous international fake base?

 

you think they might not have mentioned the challenger explosion?

 

showed how we had made it to alpha centauri by fake celluloid instead of keeping the lid on with men in black?

 

 

sorry to dissapoint ya once more, reid really did get hit by a large ship, worked like a sob to fix the rigging and cut the sprit, & we have made it to the moon more than once.

 

and why would i need "my boy " reid to fuk me in the ass when all you fuckers are continually trying to shove it in? hell i am going to have to put on my dry suit for self protection and preservation with all you freaking hard ons getting so exxxcited bout a wee bit of onboard bootie out on the sea that really doesn't 'ave anythin at all to do with you or me....

 

horny bastards leave the man alone and wish him well

if ye really are sailors that's what ye'd do

sailfastandfree must be this guy's mommy.

 

Maybe I should go buy this really great laser and sail around the world for 1000 days!

 

Anyone wanna sponsor me? I promise to paint the bottom before I leave port. :lol:

 

Maybe I can con someone into putting up some cash, sail around the harbor and ditch the Laser under some weeds on the outskirts of town and then go sit on a beach in Mallorca and submit bogus posts on my laptop in my spare time while I blow the sponsors loot! How do I set up a paypal account? :lol:

 

Go home ye annoying noob.

Since the first log was pushed into the water the Captain has had the overall responsibility for the safety and welfare of the ship and her crew. Pull your nose outa this idiots bum and recognize him for the negligent prick he is for endangering an innocent person.

 

I don't care 'how much in love' these clowns are. If this guy has so much experience he's damn well gotta understand his responsibilities.

Well well. The lackey seems to get very tight at the suggestion that the whole thing's a scam.

 

Hmmm.

Oh and the little wanker's taken to PM'ing his disappointment... what a fuck.

 

WhereToday... Palma's getting pretty dense with tourists but the north side of the island's a great place to hang for a few... chicks are less stressed than in LA too!

 

August will be fun when the classics show up though!

Why all the fighting? Sheesh... It's not like I don't wish him a safe journey, as we sailors are all bonded by our love of the sea and our boats. There is an unwritten rule where even if you don't like another sailor, you'd still help him out in a heartbeat. There is a difference between lending another sailor a tool or giving him a fuel filter versus giving him money that I work hard for while he sits on his arse, pleading for handouts, to pay his debts and fund his "travel round the world" scam. When you are more concerned with your bean sprouts than the seaworthiness of your boat, that, to me, raises a red flag. Don't get me wrong- it'd be cool as hell if he, let alone any of us, could accomplish a feat as large as 1000 days at sea. I'm not here to bash the guy, but I find the facts and his posts to be bizarre. Sure, he has balls- but when you have no common sense, this leads to disaster. I see this all the time, "I'm Airborne, hoo-ah hoo-ah," 'til homeboy comes back with an asphalt enema because he miscalculated his landing. Or a broken clavicle. Broken arm. Broken leg. Jacked up knees. Reid is not playing with a full deck. He may be a hero to some of you because he's "living the dream" and snagged a 23-year-old, but reality is A) No real maintenance was done to fortify the boat for this journey, B) This guy struggles with manual labor, making one wonder if he ever worked in his life, let alone could he handle a real emergency at sea, and C) Does not seem to familiar with the systems on the boat HE built. The stink-pot powerboaters I work with are even scratching their heads at this guy- and our stereotype of powerboaters is that THEY are not too bright. Anyhoo, let's stop attacking each other and be one happy board. Hell, tomorrow is Sailstice, and my ass is working a 24-hour shift, so I am envious of ALL you guys who will be out on your boats (sweet Wu-Wei is docked less than a mile and a half from the work-prison-compound... torture!) while I wear a uniform and answer stupid phone calls....

you know i am tired of all the ignorant shit i see hear, at least it was nice to see the concept of wishing him a safe journey and stop the bashing until the rest of the post was spent bashing.

 

fact: he and varying volunteer crew spent years "fortifying" (now thar's a nautical term matey)

the Anne for this expedition. all of you are speaking bullshit with your heads way up where the sun don't shine each and every time you pile on this guy. i don't understand how you promote these bullshit facts so quick without a self critical thought as you type. he doesn't seem familiar with the systems?

the electrical system was done by someone else, other than that the man who has been living on the boat he designed and built by sweat of his own fukin brow for more than twenty five years knows every square centimeter of the boat. how are all these self proclaimed experts on reid stowe and the schooner anne able to pontificate so pointedly when none of them have probably met the man nor set foot onboard the boat about which they speak?

 

politicians treat their public with more respect.

 

well, maybe that one's a bit of an exaggeration too.

MMMM not that uptight wanker

just concerned bout you we never really made it to the moon it was all faked on teevee types

 

btw

there's a signal being sent to keep track of the boat

the maersk freighter did collapse the bowsprit in half despite all you wankers smoking too much crack saying that never happened

and btw just in case you didn't figure this one out yet, we're losing the freakin war in iraq and afghanistan, or maybe you think we're just waiting for the iraqis to do their job?

 

here's the thing wanker

if he scammed for years and didn't leave

now he did and he is out there sailing

 

a fellow sailor fuker

am i uptight

naw, pissed off at you superior as shit types

that thinks yours don't smell anything butt sweetly

Sailfastandfree,

 

Well, our opinions on this differ. I don't feel I was "bashing" Reid, either, but you are right, I don't know the guy. I just see the tragic flaws in his plan. But then, this is my opinion.

Chris:

 

Considered opinions won't get my goat. Tragic flaws? He's attempting to break the 657 non-stop no resupply sailing record and decided 1000 was a good round number to go for. He's been conning people into believing he's leaving the next month for so long he believed it himself. He worked on improving the boat substantially every day for ten years and more. He has equipped her to survive three years of constant sailing along with himself and crew. There's an aspect of nautical competance and perserverance that is way too often ignored in considering this a foregone tragedy. Lighten up people, he's survived this far and will continue.

 

Why not toss some good vibes his way for a change, instead of the usual SA diatribes about how he's doomed to fail from the start, a con man out to kill an innocent girl you all joke bout fucking and assorted other nice things to say about a sailing man out on the ocean virtually alone for years at sea.

 

Fair winds.
