I’ve got several Google Earth overlays that show wave height distribution, and very recent wave height/wind speed data as well. Give me some time to go through all my stuff and I’ll see what I can send along.
It seems like a short term solution to me.
Well the doldrums are pretty huge, but you are correct that it is probably a short-term solution. But we put the first seasteads into calm waters until we get the technology down. Once there are several seasteads floating and prospering in calm areas we can expand into harder places.
Humans didn’t fly straight to the moon…we did some easy stuff first just to test the tech and get our feet wet. Once we were comfortable we moved to tougher stuff.
