Couple Cruise for 1000 Days


Recommended Posts

The spinmeisters have been working full time. It's been a while since Stowe's gotten any ink.

 

Surprised the Hovians haven't already flooded the comments section with praise and worship.

It is funny how these "journalists" are spoon fed the Hovian spiel about the driftathon and his detractors and print it verbatim. Why haven't sailors flocked over to congratulate Stowe?. Because outside of a few supporters like Charlie Doane, most experienced sailors simply see drifting around aimlessly for extended periods as more as an oddity than a monumental sailing achievement. But of course if you fail to worship at the alter of the Cheesemonaut you are just jealous and a "hater". Stowe made his choices in life, now he gets to live with them. As we all do.

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

Why is it that you demand that other people prove their assertions to your satisfaction while you spout oft bizarre theories that utterly defy reason and expect to be taken seriously?.   Stowe isn't

the idiot who wrote that bs

 

That explains a few things. Ironic that a Canadian (nothing against Canadians that have a clue) Robin Leach wannabe that makes a living lamely mocking celebrities so indignantly portrays this motley crowd as haters. He should be forced to sit through Void Ho repeating endlessly ala Clockwork Orange.

That was just Darshen's first response when the photographer said, SAY CHEEESE!!!

 

they are right. you are a malevolent b*tch.

 

And I'm in therapy to try and overcome my dangerous obsession. I had a meeting at JFK today and didn't make the relatively short trip to Hoboken. I spoke to my therapist for a half hour before leaving the parking lot and he stayed on the phone with me through the Van Wyck, Hutchinson and 95N until I got past the Mamaroneck exit, at which point he convinced me that turning back during rush hour wasn't worth it.

 

I found a couple Clozapine in the glove box to get me the rest of the way home, but now there are a couple hundred spiders on the ceiling looking down and laughing at me.

 

I'm sweating profusely and probably won't get a very good night's sleep.

Ask for Danny Kadouri, and tell him you learned of his outfit from an astronaut who got his name and number off the back of a painting he's taking to Mars which was painted on a Doyle sail (http://www.doylesails.com/) that spent 1150 days at sea. The painting would not have been possible without the lighting below courtesy of Optima Batteries (http://www.optimabat...es.com/home.php).

Optima is a damned good marine battery, Doyle sails come with a Jesus and Buddha repair warranty (North sails come with a Sri Lankan handjob that fucks up the zippers so bad that if you sneeze on the bag, you wake up the bed bugs from the manufacturer's phlem and they make the fucking zipper stick). Trojans have been very reliable, and Danny appears to be ambivalent about the mosque thing.

 

Please support Reid's sponsors.

There really is only one way this thread can end...with Void Ho. Nothing else captures the essence of the Cheesemonaut or the Mars Ocean Oddity Driftathon as well. Set it, have Dawg lock the thread to view only to preserve some hysterically funny satirical gems, and find something else to waste time on..;)

I think that the scientific method would require you to throw one batch of each at 2 different ceilings. Plus a control batch of plain old white rice.

While checking for the difference between a ketch and a schooner -- as I saw a ketch for sale and was interested—see 1977 Custom-built Ketch -- I ran into this information on Wiki:

Schooners were more widely used in the United States than in any other country. Two masted schooners were and are most common. They were popular in trades that required
speed and windward ability, such as slaving, privateering, blockade running and offshore fishing
.

 

So that describes the Anne (aka Bondo Boat) to a "T"! :P (except for privateering - A ship privately owned and crewed but authorized by a government during wartime to attack and capture enemy vessels.)

Competition for Reid Stowe? -- here is a different sort of ocean-going solo sailor:

 

Henk-de-Velde.jpg

Henk de Velde

 

http://members.chell...gs/wei-adv.html

 

http://www.humanedge...expedition/hdv/

 

I quote. "That motivation can be found at the website of the 'Never Ending Voyage' (click Background), where Henk de Velde (Wikipedia; more extensive in Dutch language) explains why he started September 26, 2007 a pilgrims route to the edges of this world, with the trimaran Juniper. He has not the intention to return to the Netherlands."

Some other differences I see is that Henk's pilgrimage includes spontaneous stops and he is using a smaller size boat (a 52-foot trimaran).

HdeVeldeBoot.jpg

 

He is alone at sea, still traveling after almost three years. We'll see how this one pans out.

Was the "perp" at this Pier (known as Pier 12.5, because it lies halfway between 12th and 13th St. in Hoboken) or at the 12th St. Pier? I believe his schooner was probably spirited away for the duration of the Open House for the "Yankee Ferry," so as to avoid confusion about which boat was "open for visits." :blink:

Guess he read that RD was thinking of stopping by for some mahi mahi, cheese 'n sprouts.

 

Weedo probably conned his way to a slip on the city side of the Hudson. Hoboken probably feels like Siberia to someone who needs a continuous wave of impressionable ladies and gents streaming by to regale with his tale and hit up for cash. But who would have him? He can't afford dockage, isn't registered or insured and the boat is a wreck. Probably hasn't fixed the heads either.

interesting guy.. like the hi tech log after weedo's cartoonage. he's putting in a new furnace then pushing on somewhere.

seems like he might enjoy some dangerously obsessed stalkers encouraging fans as he appears to be telling it like it is without the sanctimonious hype or blatant lies we've encountered in Hovlandia. maybe there is still time to send him a box of homemade cookies before he sets sail.

ironic title to the DVD* in contrast to the Explorer's vain, self-proclaimed edicts that his stunted pathological emotional pallet doesn't include the colors Lonely nor Loneliness.

as long as there is a mirror or old newspaper clipping of his former heroics in the Explorer's moldy scrapbooks, he is happy self-worshiping in his ferrolite turtleshell.

cool folding dinghy, says he is painting the seams with some canned rubber gunk:

the only thing Weid and Henk have in common is that both spent lotsa time at sea, and that's where any resemblance stops,

linky to wiki

linky to his site, quite interesting to compare his ramblings (click the "background" button) with those of the drifter-grifter ... repeatedly he tries to go after the fastest circumnavigation and he just misses ..."But I had learned that any human record is meaningless.

Sorry for dredging this issue up again, but I found this info on flying foreign flags... See this thread from the "Seven Seas Cruising Association":

http://forum.ssca.or....php?f=7&t=5664

 

Jim, you are looking for problems.

 

As a US citizen, you still will need a cruising permit to bring a foreign-flagged vessel into the US. And you'll probably need to incorporate a sham business in SV to flag it there, adding to your costs. And, you'll be giving up the aegis of the US government, which protects US-flagged vessels and their crew--not SV flags and crews.

 

Oh, and that US cruising permit means your boat can stay in the US for one year--and not one day longer--until you take it back out and obtain a new permit to re-enter.

..............

~~~~~

 

This from the CBP site (http://www.cbp.gov/x...at_overview.xml)

 

Pleasure Boat Reporting Requirements

 

(04/28/2007)Pursuant to 19 CFR 4.2, operators of small pleasure vessels, arriving in the United States from a foreign port or place to include any vessel which has visited a hovering vessel or received merchandise outside the territorial sea, are required to report their arrival to CBP immediately (see 19 U.S.C. 1433).

{{ASIDE: hov'ering ves'sel:

a vessel in territorial waters apparently collaborating in illicit operations.}} :ph34r:

..........

 

These are some excerpts from my message last Fri., which had a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo, and rightfully was met with a collective YAWN! :o

Also see this next excerpt for an interesting twist to "the Voyage to Nowhere," which derives from the CBP regulations above.

 

Any small pleasure vessel leaving a United States port into international or foreign waters, without a call at a foreign port, does not satisfy the foreign departure requirement. Therefore, certain fishing vessels, cruises to nowhere, or any vessel that leaves from a United States port and returns without calling a foreign port or place, has not departed the United States.

~~~~

Since Reid Stowe never called a foreign port or place (unless being within sight of Rottnest Is. counts as calling a place- "Helloo out there!!!"), I figure that he never actually departed the United States. Interesting, eh?

 

So, according to the strict interpretation of this rule, the "Love Voyage" never left home! B)

Apparently all you need to sail around the world is (1) a life raft donated by your ex-wife and (2) a tiny girlfriend who is going to freak the fuck out as soon as the north atlantic starts and the hudson ends.

 

Good scam tho'. They did get the shits donated, and can just roll to the islands and fake the logs for the trip...

Amazing poise and sense of purpose in this man. I am impressed by his ability to get to the point and not dwell on philosophy. He is very matter-of-fact, and seems to have common sense. I assume he has more corporate sponsors than Weid ever had, considering that he had to repair a mast and an engine, and get rescued by the Coast Guard. Henk obviously has nothing against asking for help- good on him!

bump

 

Please, for the love of all that's decent in the world... do not do that again

 

I had to educate myself on the meaning of the word "bump", as a post in a forum.

 

Here is what I found on an Aussie forum:

 

Pardon my ignorance, why do people post the word bump?

 

Bump
is forum speak for moving a thread to the top of a given forum (and hence being more likely to be noticed by other users).

 

For the most part a bump after a day or two of not getting much of a response
is ok
, but continual bumping
is silly
.

 

Also we generally prefer users to try and post a
more constructive reply
than
bump
when bumping a thread such as new things they may have tried or thoughts they had on an issue etc.

 

So, those are my thoughts on the issue. What was that issue again? :blink:

If you want to read something about Reid Stowe, I suggest you visit MarthaStewart.com where you will find a truly handy little article entitled How to Pack for Three Years at Sea. Here's a partial list -

 

 

 

  • Food (enough to last two people three years: rice, beans, pasta and sauce, dried fruit, sprout salads, and salt fish)
  • Troll lines for catching tuna and mahimahi, plus salt for preserving what's not eaten right away
  • 300 gigs of music
  • Antique French stove, plus 2,000 pounds of coal and 150 boxes of wood for burning

It's a good thing.

YCMTSU. Indeed.

 

I was a nonbeliever and went to the site. Astonishingly RD, your credibility remains intact.

The fifteen minutes of fame are long gone, the boat is a wreck and there is no money coming in from starstruck followers. I'm betting the exercise video with Richard Simmons is not far off, featuring the strengthening stance and massaging your internal organs, all set to Void Ho. I can just see RS in a tank top and skimpy pink shorts jumping around spastically painted up like a ghetto Maori warrior sreaming VOID HO VOID HO VOiD HO in a falsetto voice.

Sadly, this thread limps along to try and make it's goal of 1,000,000 page views - Less than 5,000 to go...

If only the Hovian Nation would step up to support that which is totally fucking ridiculous, we could meet our goal and once again, save the world for man massage and organ shifting

I can't believe this bum is still looking for handouts! And how is he getting to have that POS boat in NYC again, even if it's just for a day? I'm sure he has to be towed over and back from Ho-ho-ken, so that's more kindness from others. What a fucking role model. RD, you planning on going?

"DAVID CARRADING, WORLD RENOWNED ACTOR IS THE INTERNATIONAL SPOKESPERSON POSTUMUSIOUSLY" :blink:

 

I can appreciate Mr. "Carrading's" love of water, as he appears to have had a problem with air -- especially in Bangkok where it was so bad he tried to hide from it in a closet and used his genitals and a rope to regulate his intake of the stuff.....and succeeded to perfection. But seriously -- even in someone's honor, who the hell has a dead spokesperson?

 

YCMTSU

 

 

BTW - I looked at the word above that means "after death" and misread it as "POSTHUMOROUSLY" I looked at it again and decided I was way too sober for the Soul Train Scramble Board. Jeebus, Aseawolf, did you type that or does it actually appear that way on the web?

It very clearly states that "DARSHAN" was the one involved in the record (presumably of being concieved for A THOUSAND DAYS AT SEA!!

looks like this thread still has some legs..

i received an anonymous forwarded email that was addressed to Paul Sladkus.

 

RUT ROH HOVIANS!

 

 

Mr. Sladkus,

Please cancel the Schooner Party scheduled Sunday at the Water not Weapons Event at the Frying Pan.

Reid Stowe is a polluter who dumps raw sewage into the Hudson River.

There is no holding tank in use on the Schooner Anne. All sewage is dumped directly without treatment into the Hudson River.

See Document of previous summons http://1000daysreality.blogspot.com/

The press will be notified that Mr. Stowe is a flagrant polluter and the U.S. Coast Guard will be called for a spot inspection of the Schooner Anne which is currently in violation of Marine Sanitation laws.

Mr. Stowe is the last person to be 'honored' for clean water. Please do not allow him to tarnish the good works of Weapons Not Water.

A Press Release with Mr. Stowe's summons for dumping raw sewage into the Hudson River will be issued should Water for Weapons decide to endorse Mr. Stowe at this event.

Thank you for your time,

A concerned citizen for clean water.

.................

thanks anon for forwarding me your email to Sladkus. you've got a valid point there that even the Hovians can't spin their way out of!

 

it's been pretty amazing to watch the Hovians attempt to brand a felon, excon and deadbeat daddy on a foreign flagged vessel AN AMERICAN HERO...but choosing an admitted dumper of raw sewage into the Hudson as honoree for a non-profit whose 'mission' is as follows, stretches all credulity!

are the Hovians really nutso??

A tribute to a polluter?

rock on 'concerned citizen for clean water' !

While you're at it, the protest and pollution documentation should be forwarded to Friends of Clearwater. A satellite organization who had (paid for?) Soanya speak at one of their fund raisers. Might not do much good as Hovian Donna Stein is a vice president of the organization and clearly one of Soanya's handlers.

 

Always loved Pete Seeger and his efforts on behalf of the environment. Stowe simply uses the cause for publicity and a means to generate support for himself.

 

Everyone is a hypocrite to a certain extent but when someone is hypocritical while posing as a sympathetic activist for a cause and benefits directly from the association, it simply sucks.

This is the shaky group. I can't find one useful purpose or accomplishment derived from their fundraising. They gave out awards back in 2004 for water quality in Desert Springs, CA, and to the government of Tajikstan for their clean water efforts. Now there is only a website that is a lot of talk of their lofty purpose, but actually is nothing more than a collection of links (many are dead, including that to their own Newsletter). However, you still can access founder Philip Sauer's surfboard biz website, and contact singer Sharon Benson (above in the video), who is the Vice President of Entertainment. Paul Sladkus sits on the Advisory Board. Perhaps Paul could advise us exactly what has been accomplished other than hitting up the U.N. to sponsor that concert in Central Park last week, and probably tomorrow's grand tribute to Stowe.

 

Groups like this infuriate me! They are created to be nothing more than a front to benefit their top dogs, and compete with truly worthy charitable organizations for grant dollars.

check the drummer

 

Pretty damn funny.

 

During a couple of brief breaks when all the other instruments pause while Sharon sings a bar or two Wavey Gravey keeps on merrily drumming, completely oblivious to the music.

 

Nothing worse than bad white drummers.

Is he going to be allowed to STAY at Frying Pan Pier? Right smack in the middle of his comfort zone where he can beg for thousands of more dollars, especially now that he's got Darshen to use as a marketing tool. Might as well dress the kid in a PayPal t-shirt.
