That would be a blast (pun intended).  Life on the seas is sounding funner and funner every day.

 It is interesting how water makes experimenting with something like this practical. Doing the same thing over land would be quite dangerous.

Couldn’t this develop into a safe way to get from a ship on the seastead and vice versa?

Water is also powerful enough to lift a car:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFEOctt9-UE

We’d need a fire department on Seastead anyway, won’t we :)
