    I get a “Null” error with the link that was provided, but removing the last directory name gives a working link:

    I’m not that’s what he wants us to see though, since it doesn’t look like a tristead.

    I don’t know whats wrong. I’ll use the wiki uploads.

    Based on Shredder’s tristead idea, I thought of a SFS, 100% power self-sufficient. Wind generator and solar panels in purple, 3 living quarters, hydrodynamic underwater hull configuration heavily balasted (shown in navy blue in the underwater pic) for smoother and gentler stationary position seakeeping qualities, highly modular, mobile in itself or rafted up with another tristead for a rhombus like shape and a decent size “under the sun ” open deck area. Even thought named “MiniTristead” and intended to be a SFS, the design its scalable to any size.

    that beats the MMK hands down! how much?

    I wouldn’t go that far in saying that. The MMK and the Minitristead have different main functionalities. The MMK was designed strictly as a business. A boat and breakfast or a close to shore fishing platform. Whatever will work best or both. The lagoon-like seawater pool was meant to privatly entertain the guests, and its construction pricetag is cheap (hence the houseboat for living quarters) but with a high yield ROI. On the other hand, the Minitristead was designed as a residential seastead first and secondary as a business. For the same area, the Minitristead will be twice as expensive as the MMK because the living quarters on the Minitristead will have to be built from scratch.

    How much will depend on how big. For the same exact design shown it can be 30’x30’x30′, 1 deck, “population” 1 family with 1-2 kids, basicaly a SFS, or 300’x300’x300′, 10 decks, “population” 100-200 permanent residents with accomodations for 100 paying guests. You tell me.

    Nothing can be “stabilized” on the open ocean. Anything will be in perpetum mobile.

    Shreddy, is that you there, the lone seasteader, on a golden platform?

    okay, by “stabilize on the open ocean” i just mean keep them from falling out of formation. the metal bars between them now are not robust to handle the forces. these are 65m long, concrete.

    At some point…

    deep, in the furure…

    we…

    will go to space.

    and i dont mean we…

    as in nasa.

    i mean we, as a society.

    there will be small vessels.

    and there will be humongous ships.

    seasteading is a step along that path.

    seasteading is THE next step along the way.

    we can get there.

    but we MUST…

    start here.

    the ocean provides a “testbed”. you will either survive, or your lifeless remains will find the seabed. which is, of course, a MUCH better fate than floating off into the universe. your matter would still matter to our world here on Earth, and to our amazing society.

    so join the quest. commit yourself to a permanent future that includes humanity. you can do it for your own sake. you can do it for your loved ones. you can do it for your ancestors, generations away. you can do this for the lord. you can make a contribution that helps further intelligent life in our galaxy. you can seastead!!

    seasteading provides the opportunity we need to test out living in a harsh environment, which is a way to gear up for the harshest frontier ever encountered. we have challenges to face. that is why we need as many people involved as possible. we need artists, entrpreneurs, adventurers, opportunists, engineers, investors, and we need you – to put your faith in the concept of lasting recreational settlements, offshore. resolve to commit at least 2 hours each week to learning about, and advancing this cause. yes, you can make a difference, because you will BE that difference.

    FOR THE UBER-RICHE:

    this puppy has its very own mooring system. its located wherever-the-hell-u-want-it. it has an airplane elevator that brings planes below deck should they get stuck there in a storm. all visiting airplanes are large sea-planes that take-off and land from international airports in neighboring countries. the island is 500m square and 25 m in height. the island accomodates 1000 people in massive luxury for $10,000 per person-week.

    here is what happens when there are 35′ ocean swells; all they have to do is release some of the ballast (pump out) and they can rise above it (imagine that it’s dark and stormy):

    and here’s a pose with a model of the Oasis of the Seas (scaled):

    one possible airplane to use would be the Beriev Be-200es:

    this is the largest size berg that could be built in an existing drydock:

    i picture this as a school, where really wealthy people send their kids. it would be located E of Papua New Guinea, where there’s a “relatively shallow” area to moor down. each hull can hold 5,000 students and 250 crew/ staff member/ teachers. the cost of sending your kids their is just 100K USD/ year. So if u live on food stamps – ohhh well. an undersea cable delivers broadband and emergency power. between the 2 athletic fields, we can host lacrosse, soccer, and american football. the school is the most rigorous academically. students wake up around 6am. studies are gruelling. everything is competitive. extremely competitive all the time. from the time they wake up till bedtime – neverending competition. uniforms are required. mrs. mcscnizzlebizzle is the head chef. she has a fleet of robots to help cook everything. robots are ubiquitous. and they even help with your homework.

    this complex is a $10B project :) it would last about 30 years before needing to drydock again.

    the field trips r kick-ass. each kid goes on 4/yr. they also get a full month to spend with their families. also, there are traveling teams for all type of sport and other competition. then you can even get involved with some volunteer work. every week there is organized parties, and disorganized parties. students can stay there thru college and grad school, but are encouraged to take classes at other colleges to get a different experience and meet people that grew up differently than they did. kids can be enrolled after their 3rd birthday and could potentially stay up until age 25.
