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

Translation ... "Sorry dude, no names and/or locations because I made it all up."   Reality ... Reid "supporters" rise up in direct opposition of "rabidity" of Reid bashers.   For instance, look a

At least this guy is a sailor! I have also done the Gibraltar to Santa Lucia run (29 days)

 

2 of the biggest posters here are handicapped and admit to no longer sailing. What's the story with the rest of you armchair captains????

 

Reid is out there doing something and it might be crazy but so is winter crab fishing in the Baltic sea, Boat Top fuel drag racing, Base jumping, power gliding, cliff diving.......................

 

WTF is wrong with you dickwad? are you concerned no one will recognise you for your wondrous achievements on water. This thread aint about you, you cheese eating moron. Its about a scammer who in all likelihood will endanger more lives than his own because he is a stupider and dumberer than you.

Ed's. note

As you can see the 200th Day At Sea for Reid & Soanya is coming up shortly. If any of you out there has a good idea of how to best be able to celebrate this milestone in the journey, please feel free to send it to the blog in a comment. Thanks!

 

Any suggestions?

Bering Sea, Baltic Sea, what's the difference to a salty old dog like Swan70. I'm sure he's too busy sailing to watch "Deadliest Catch".

 

For the record my boat is the one that did the Gibraltar to Santa Lucia run in less than 12 parsecs.

hey, I just checked out the 1,000 Days of Smell blog.

So why am I ?

 

Your devout servants

Reid, Sayonara and the Reid Hovians ( Swan 70, Captain Lithium et al.)

 

Keep my name out of your stinky little scrotum of a blog.

Lest you suffer the pains of hell unleashed.

 

Remember, I always win.

I was a junky who wanted out so I took my quarter tonner (25 footer) away from the H crowd. Barbados seemed like a nice place so I headed out from England with food, water, no engine, no electronics for offshore use, and no horse (lots of brandy though). As you can see, I made it on a wing and a prayer.

 

Good on ya for getting the monkey off your back - friends and family have also had to get past a life on H - Respect!

 

That said, a couple of points:

  • You did this trip (and others) solo, you did not have a clueless unibrow groupie tagging along.
  • I would hope your 1/4 tonner was in better shape than the cheese scow.
  • Did you scam your friends, family and complete strangers about some misguided artistic merit of your trip?
  • Did you abandon your child? Child support payments?
  • If the cheese scow starts to sink quickly, if Weed does decide to bail, or Sayonara soils herself one time to many, it will most likely be in ugly conditions - How can you justify the SAR folks putting there lives on the line for this miserable excuse of artistic masturbation by a bunch of SoHo hacks?

You may have the miles, one would hope with the miles comes the wisdom to know just how foolish and dangerous this scam is. No doubt there are armchair sailors chiming in on this clusterfuck - that said, there are plenty of us with the miles and the stripes to call this what it is: TOTALLY FUCKING RIDICULOUS!

That might not have been much of a joke, but it sure went way over your head. You must be something like 3.95e-17 parsecs tall.

 

Ha. ha. Funny.

NY Times Story on Weed & wife Laurence (WTF: LAUERENCE?) from 1999 - Scroll half way down page 3

 

Laurence and Reid Stowe

May 29, 1999

WHEN Reid Stowe and Laurence Guillem married, I wasn't sure they would survive their honeymoon -- literally. They planned to leave one week after the wedding to spend 200 days at sea, sailing a small handmade boat in the South Atlantic.

 

As it turned out, their motor broke underneath the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. But they kept going anyway, living on sprouts Mrs. Stowe grew in their tiny kitchen, fish they caught and salted, pasta, dried beans and rice.

Good to see ya got the engine working after that trip Weed - But did they have any CHEESE for those 200 days?

 

''The South Atlantic was very peaceful,'' Mrs. Stowe said. ''On one side, we were 1,000 miles from South Africa and the same from South America. That's scary, and at the same time it made us feel like the first woman and man on earth.''

Seems that Weed likes to take his dates to the same rundown section of ocean as in the past - Creature of habit no doubt

 

In gales and storms, they would be out on the deck together, sometimes all night long, with enormous waves all around them. ''We have to function together as a crew,'' Mr. Stowe said. ''If our love breaks down, we put our physical lives at risk.'' In the worst storm, they encountered 155-mile-an-hour gusts. ''I didn't see how the boat could survive those winds,'' said Mr. Stowe, now 49. ''We were preparing to die together.''

 

Then, on Jan. 20 of this year, they left for another adventure. They sailed to Bermuda, then to Trinidad, through one winter storm after another. In one of them, the boat turned over three times.

155 MPH? thats 135 Knots! To provide a comparison, per NOAA, peak winds from Katrina were around 117 Knots Roll the cheese scow 3 times? Think of all the crap that would have broken loose and rolled around inside - It would have killed everyone - I don't just call bullshit, I call double bullshit!

 

''Dying together on the boat would be a romantic end, in a way,'' said Mrs. Stowe, now 28. But I'm not ready to die. I always think there is a way to survive.''

Ya, the Ex may feel that way, but not Weed - That crazy MoFo has a death wish -

 

 

They did survive, and returned to New York two weeks ago, again tying their boat up to Pier 23. Now, they are planning another voyage, 1,000 days at sea.

 

''We love to be together,'' Mrs. Stowe said. ''Reid is the first man I ever met who liked to be with me all the time. After a while, most people just get tired of each other, but I think it's because they have a boring life. We have no money, but we don't have a boring life.''

Besides the ex wife (any word on the poor kid or child support payments?) and no money, it only took ya 8 years to scam enough marks. They could not even come up with the bare minimum to run away when they were comming to evict ya. Oh, then there were the 'friends' that may have gotten out of the lockup that wanted to have a chat with Weed -

 

Boring??? Not by a long shot - We could still have 821 days of "As the Cheese Sinks" to watch

 

You. Can't. Make. This. Shit. Up!

He's a guy who's done some pretty impressive stuff in and with his life if you can overlook the obvious shortcomings. He's always been broke, he's always been a dreamer and he's always kept hope. Now he's jumped on his last chance - it was forced on him at the end but he went for it rather than slinking away. Soanya joined him willingly - she's not a victim. They may not have any place to go because his past has caught up with him and they are broke but that doesn't mean they are evil.

They are essentially homeless drifters and probably pretty depressed right now. Just as you wouldn't stand on a corner and yell taunts and insults at a homeless couple, it seems time to maybe lighten up and reach out here. After all, you are the sailing community but, more important, you are a community of people who know these two human beings are or shortly will be in pretty desperate condition. Maybe it would be good to see what happens if Jesse and his censorship are ignored and an effort is made to tell them it's ok to turn around - they should not feel embarrassed for having made the attempt but stopped because they came to their senses. Remember - it's hard for them - especially him - since it means the end of what he says (and I believe) is a lifelong dream. That's why they keep talking as they have - they hope optimism will overcome reality.

 

Obviously no one here has any responsibility to or for them. But it seems human to stop the nastiness and reach out to help. If they reject it, so be it. But I think everyone will feel better for it anyway.

oh goodness RC, you say don't feel bad for soanya cause she made a choice (she was a 16 yr old child when they met), but we're also supposed to feel what? bad? for the both of them cause they are homeless?? they are not homeless. they are floating in their home. soanya has family, am i to believe they have turned their backs on her and would not have taken her in? reid has family, same goes for him, did his family tell him he had to set sail cause he wasn't welcome in their home? i call complete and total bullshit on that.

part of owning a boat is slip fees and maintenance. if you can't pay, you need to either get a job or find some place else to live.

 

i believe you are right, it is his life long dream and he is gonna do it or die trying. i don't think it makes a dif to him which one it is.

 

i do not wish them ill. i have anger but not hatred. i actually find myself worried for them when they have no postings on their blog. the two days the were silent i could help but wonder, are they sick from the gut fish? did reid fall from the top of the mast? and i was concerned. i worry that they look like they are starving themselves...i know they have food, but they are not eating it because it has to last 1000 days, they are starving themselves, i am not taking their cheese.

 

maybe i sound negative because i am of the opinion that they won't survive, but i do want them to survive. i think their posts are silly and i find myself laughing at them. if that makes me a nasty human, oh well, i guess i must be. but don't ask me to feel sorry or guilty. i'm not riding the guilt trip express into the void ho.

 

how do you suggest we reach out and help? i am not sending my hard earned money to his pay pal. if i did it would be for the sole purpose of dragging his p.o.s. back to the dock. i have tried giving them information, which is pretty useless to them as most was of the "well, you shoulda done" variety and they can't changed what they have brought with them ( it might have helped someone else contemplating the same voyage to be better prepared had it been allowed on their blog). my next best advice is head for port and refit. if that is not an option for them, that is not my fault and there isn't a damn thing i can do about it.

 

who called them evil? of their desperate condition we can do nothing, except finance a rescue mission but the desperation will just follow them wherever they go.

Dont bother, the kings noble woodcutter, strong and handsome strode into the forest and swung his mighty axe and smote those fucking trees down. Thence having selected the straightest most beautiful of them all he lay with them, depositing his personal cheese upon them and blessed then before sending them rolling downhill from denmark all the way to deliverance valley for the cheese eating ozarks to construct the mighty smegscow for saint cheese reid HO to sail upon the endless waters.....

Please explain. To whom is he a danger? Except perhaps himself. Is he putting your life in danger?. Has he affected your life in some way apart from giving you almost 200 days of free entertainment. You should all be grateful to this guy. He's stopped you all wanking over internet porn. You're now all wanking over each others posts. Such a happy little family, and with such sticky sheets. Probably the porn is a bit more natural if the truth be told.

Why does he have to be a danger to me in order for me to be concerned? He's already confessed to hitting a freighter. You know just as well as anyone here that there are a LOT of boats in transit (and two races going by where they are right now).

 

Besides, he's playing the hero, acting as a model to emulate, and some poor tit is going to assume that Reid's level of preparation is sufficient to tackle the oceans. You know it's not.

 

You're smarter than this, gusmus. <_<

You know. I've been following this "FuckFest" for a while now and to be honest. 90% of you shitheads are worse than Mr Reid will ever be. At least he writes bullshit while he is doing what he said he will do. You lot just sit and write bullshit. I don't agree with his methods or the importance of his voyage, but, at least he is out on the water doing what most of you assholes would like to dream about doing. Stand up and be counted my friends.

How many of you armchair asshats have ever been "properly" offshore?

 

Weekend dinghy trips?

You are not qualified to make judgment nor criticise.

 

Round Britain coastal hops or to the Carib through the Intracoastal?

You are not qualified either.

 

32 days across the atlantic?

You are getting close to be able to open your mouth on odd occasions.

 

Built your own boat and taken it aroung the world?

OK, I'll listen to you because you are qualified.

 

Now for heavens sake. All you armchair assholes, PLEASE, shut the fuck up because you are doing nothing more than increasing your carbon footprint. Be objective and look at the merits as well as the fuck ups. The "Fuck ups" you are all willing to give sage opinions apon, whilst the merits are overlooked, yet you believe in fair play on the race course on a port/starboard call. FUCK OFF the lot of you nay sayers and get out there and do it for yourselves. Then tell us all about it and just how easy it was. Until then. Let's wait and see what happens to this adventure before being too critical, because jealousy is a big hunch on your back. As I said before. I'm not a fan of his nor ever will be, but at least he is out there doing it and for that, I say, Good Luck.

have you floated and/or sailed around the world 4 times in 1000 days in a leaking boat with a neophyte crew with tattered sails, a leaking diesel tank, squawk, cheese and sprouts?

if not, then you are not qualified to tell me to shut the fuck up.

 

i do not need to sail for 1000 days and through the southern ocean to know i need spare parts, a ditch bag, a life raft, proper foul weather and safety gear, and food if i'm going offshore.

i do not need to sail for 1000 days to know that if i don't have a proper diet i will become weak and less likely to be able to handle my boat.

i do not need to sail for 1000 days to know that a foul bottom is not a good thing.

i do not need to sail for 1000 days to know that if i am going to attempt such a thing i need to do it in a boat that i can handle alone.

i do not need to sail for 1000days to know it is important to stand watch and that if i have a collision with a tanker while i am drifting, it would have been my fault.

 

no one, not one single person, said it was impossible. people cross the oceans all the time and some do it with as little preparation as reid. what they don't do is spout all kinds of crap all over the internet asking people to buy into the idea that it is for the good of mankind. they don't act as if they are instructing others to do the same and act as if they are the last word in sailing expertise.

 

not one single person said reid should not be allowed to follow his dream. all this bullshit about being jealous is just that. bullshit. after all, why would i be jealous, it's not my dream. doing what reid is doing (drifting alone but for soanya) wasn't a goal in life for me, i don't need to and i don't want to, that in no way makes me afraid to get my feet wet.

 

please give a list of the merits of this trip since you feel we are all missing them somehow. you said it back it up.

 

i said earlier that i had seen nothing from reid to earn my respect. i will revise that as i am impressed, not by the quality of his boat building, but by the effort he and his family made in getting that boat built and the fact that it has held together this long. wouldn't go into the ocean with it, but it is impressive nonetheless. i respect that effort. that's about it so far.

I'm having a hard time understanding why some of you people think that Weid-ho is depressed and ready to pack it in. He and Sayonara are happy as barnacles floating around there in the ocean, duping everyone into thinking they actually have a course set in place. Every time they have been near the equator their satellite signal hasn't worked (as someone -- sorry I can't remember who -- indicated the first time we lost them for like five days), so some people jump to the conclusion that they're planning to pack it in.

Weid is going to milk this to the end or die trying. As long as he has food, water, his stash and Sayonara, I'll bet he's perfectly content. Until he really heads south, they don't have a care in the world. The mundane issues of day-to-day survival for us is all time consuming for them, so they go to bed at the end of the day feeling they've accomplished a lot...grew their own food, caught their own fish, caught their own rain, screwed whenever they felt like it, walked around stark naked (if that's what turns them on)...in their minds, what could be bad?

He is such an egomaniac, his is the only world! And he's got Sayonara thinking he's the king. He won't quit until he's surpassed the previously held record of, what?, 600-something days? Then he might pack it in. So, unless either of them gets very sick and has to call a mayday, they're going on. As far as the 1000 days people are concerned, if they just float in the Atlantic and southern Atlantic for 1000 days, mission accomplished!

But we all know that once he heads south, all bets are off, because that's when Sayonara will freak out and start screaming for her mommy! Until then, leave them alone to make their own mistakes! We can have fun watching the trainwreck.

Jeffrey Dhama was a man who “pursued his dreams” so I suppose that it was OK for him to cut up and eat people because he was only fulfilling his desires to “pursue his dreams” and if he had proclaimed that “it was all for the sake of art” it would have been all right?

Before “pursuing ones dreams – IT DEPENDS ON JUST WHAT THOSE DREAMS ARE -

i said earlier that i had seen nothing from reid to earn my respect. i will revise that as i am impressed, not by the quality of his boat building, but by the effort he and his family made in getting that boat built and the fact that it has held together this long. wouldn't go into the ocean with it, but it is impressive nonetheless. i respect that effort. that's about it so far.

 

You obviously don't understand.

Capt. Ho is an arteest.

That makes it all OK.

Am I correct in thinking that “GUSMUS” shows all the signs of a newly signed in “(hemer)roid hovian”, attempting to disrupt this thread, by misdirection and criticism, under the disguise of “moderation”. Even claiming to be highly (to his thinking) qualified as a “sailer” of experience and repute??? Starts his post “soft” then can’t resist the urge to quickly become abusive and overly critical of all here while extolling the “virtues” of sleazy reedy and his wondrous cheese factory?

Or am I just, after forty pages, becoming paranoid myself?

(I know LITH’, “paranoia will destroy you”

Could still be a native Reed hovian

maybe he feels he is a kindred spirit. who knows. check out his topics and posts in his profile and decide for yourself.

 

i still think you guys need to make a wiki entry for reidhovians and cheese scow (this one with pics of examples of a cheese scow). i went to a wooden boat fest in the dirty south last weekend and going over lake pontchartrain my b/f says, "hey look, it's the cheese anne" pointing out a raggedy looking schooner sailing on the lake. i nearly fell out laughing.

rather than sabotaging reid's efforts, it seems to me that SA has gone a long way into helping him fulfill his dream of everlasting fame. so jesse can stick the whole fucking thing right up his ass, in my opinion.

You know, it just struck me about a similar line from the book by Farley Mowat called the "Boat that wouldn't float". I don't know but it came to me in a flash, a vision, I learned it right away. Farley talked about the native people donating sacred timbers for his rebuild of the fishing schooner.

 

God, that's it. He is trying to copy Farley. The illegal smuggle of illegal illegal's. The utter lack of knowledge of what is really involved. The locals that hang out and worship the lack of sanity of the dream. Maybe Roid is heading up the St. Lawrence and going to Montreal for the Expo. Didn't Farley tie up to a free pier as the boat slowly sank.

 

I really think I am on to something. Maybe it is the Molson Brador that I'm drinking, but hang with me folks. Carlos Castaneda might show up at any time. They will change into a albatross as the Anne sinks in the southern ocean.

Not wanting to hijack this thread... but there seems to be a bit of interest in your... um... t-shirt.

 

I have a vintage "Elle Racing" t-shirt from Elle MacPherson's failed round the world all-woman crewed race effort (open 60's?) that I got in Hobart. They were selling everything but the hull the day before the creditors arrived and the boat was pad-locked. They shadowed our S/H fleet in 96. It's a nice shirt, and needs to be displayed.

 

It's your's if you want (need) it. PM me if you're interested.

I can’t help but wonder if he watched “VOID HO” in part, or in it’s entirety?

There seem to be the occasional person posting here (for whatever reason) that thinks “WE” are being too harsh on Reedy and his Ho, and should instead “praise him rather than bury him”.

To all of you I ask this question, “HAVE YOU WATCHED VOID HO”?

If/when you have, then come onto this site and tell us in all honestly whether this cretin Reid, does or does not deserves all the “crap” that can possibly be heaped upon his head?

Jeffrey Dhama was a man who “pursued his dreams” so I suppose that it was OK for him to cut up and eat people because he was only fulfilling his desires to “pursue his dreams” and if he had proclaimed that “it was all for the sake of art” it would have been all right?

Before “pursuing ones dreams – IT DEPENDS ON JUST WHAT THOSE DREAMS ARE -

Dhama? You mean Dahmer?

Like I said, this little scam-stunt thing is performance art in progress. Life imitating art or a voyage deep into the subconscious manifestations of Reid Ho as he creates a fictional life?

It's Thursday. The 1000 day web page refers to the 1000 day water hour radio show every Thurs at noon. Anyone ever hear it? Is it for real or some outdated nonexistent enterprise that is no more?

From Reid's latest post:

 

The outside assistance keeps coming. We never imagined how many people were praying for us and it's reassuring when we are out here all alone in the blue domed cathedral.

 

Aren't there two O's in "doomed cathedral"?

Wasn't Farley Mowat also involved in smuggling? I seem to recollect something about liquor and St. Pierre, but it's been a while since I read that book.

Been a while as well since I read it. But the smuggling part is correct! They did run a little rum or similiar libation! True Canadian he was!

I'm starting to remember it now. The trick was that the French Government heavily subsidized the booze in St. Pierre to give people a reason to live on that god-forsaken rock. Farley was was smuggling that cheap booze into Canada. His contacts in St. Pierre were Basque nationalists.

 

So, Farley was ripping off the French welfare state, and the proceeds were used to fund terrorisim.

 

Reid on the other hand is ripping off the US welfare state, and the proceeds are used to fund (musical, cultural?) terrorisim.

Water Hour looks like it is still real. Seems like the last contact with the Cheese Cruise was in June sometime. There is a video interview with his brother Wave (didn't have time to watch the whole thing) .

That would certainly be an apt description of the Void Ho video/song. I have not been brave enough to sample his other musical works.

A couple of questions for the day...

 

Does anyone know if this is an "Official" record attempt or is it all in their own mind? How do we find out?

 

Has anyone tried to check into the registration of the cheese scow?

Guinness is a fine keeper-tracker of this sort of info. According to Jon Sanders' Wikipedia page, as well as The Museum of Yachting, our favorite Irish Stout scorekeeper has verified Jon's record of in 1988 of 657 days. However, he did a bit more in his life than just float around growing sprouts and banging young impressionable land lubbers:

 

* First single-handed to complete five circumnavigations (two having been completed by Sanders in Perie Banou in 1981-82)

* First single-handed to complete three non-stop circumnavigations consecutively.

* First single-handed to complete a total of four non-stop circumnavigations (the first in 1981-82)

* First single-handed to complete more than one non-stop circumnavigation.

* First single-handed to complete five Cape Horn rounding's (one east-west, four west-east).

* First single-handed to complete four Cape Horn rounding's during non-stop circumnavigations.

* First single-handed to round the five southernmost capes four times.

* First single-handed to complete a circumnavigation using the east-west route (i.e. Cape Horn plus two other capes - Leeuwin and Good Hope).

* First single-handed to complete four circumnavigations using the west-east route (i.e. Cape Horn plus four other capes - Good Hope, Leeuwin, South East, Tasmanian and Southwest, New Zealand).

* First small yacht (less than 15.5m) skipper to complete five circumnavigations, crewed or single-handed

* Longest distance ever sailed continuously by any vessel (71,023 nautical miles or 131,535km).

* Longest period ever spent alone at sea (657 days 21 hours 18 minutes).

* Believed first yachtsman to complete five circumnavigations via Cape Horn (as crewed or single-handed).

* First yachtsman to circumnavigate non-stop via the Horn west about and east about.

* First yachtsman to complete three consecutive non-stop circumnavigations.
