    Greetings everyone.

    I have always enjoyed the sea and the freedom it meant. and the last year i have had a dream to live on the open seas. for me its the closest thing to living in space, only easier and more affordable. so i was sitting at home friday night surfing the web. reading about boats house boats etc. that lead me into some interesting reading about Sealand (a micronation)
    well i wanted to be a part of something similar so searching and reading about different projects i ended up here. so i decided to sign up and try to help out the project become a reality.
    also i am a big believer in Meritocracy and Darwinism.

    link about Meritocracy:

    About me:

    My name is Antonio i am 23 years old. i currently live in the city of Gothenburg / Sweden, i moved here in 1991 from Croatia because of the Balkan war.
    After i finished a Technical “gymnasium” (?highschool? 16-19years old) i moved to Gothenburg and worked for Volvo Cars for a few years. then i decided i wanted an education. i narrowed it down to 2 choices

    1. “sea engineer” (control and maintain the engine room of a ship and also other ship functions)
    2. “Auto/Mechanical Designer/Engineer” (learn how to build car and other parts in the computer, run simulations lead projects learn about different materials etc.)

    i got accepted into both schools but i chose number 2. i think it will be more stimulating to create new stuff then to maintain stuff someone else has already made. i also love engines and other mechanical stuff. people also say i am a problem solver. so i have finished my first year and have 2 more years to go.
    i will probably try to get work in Norway’s offshore industry after i complete my education.

    because i am a student i can not help the project out financially.
    but i have skills in theese areas so far:

    first i would say i am fluent in 3 languages.
    English, Swedish and Croatian
    so far i have also learned to use these programs:
    AutoCad
    Mechanical Desktop
    Inventor
    SolidWorks
    and i have also learned to use 3D studio max.

    well hopefully you will learn more about me as you take time to know me.

    Im also 23 years old, and also an engineer / student. Im working on some seastead concepts in solidworks right at this moment. Too bad it seems there are no image tags supported.

    Im also a ‘believer’ in darwinism, but that can be taken to mean a lot of things in contemporary english.

    CAD skills and materials engineering are useful, as are engines and mechanical stuff. A job in Norway’s offshore industry sounds like great experience for seasteading!
