Anyone have spar pillar designs?July 11, 2011 at 10:25 am #14103
Ocean currents do not change direction. The surface of the water can be effected by wind but the current itself contiues on its way.July 13, 2011 at 2:04 am #14098
Im pretty much settled on mooring the darn SS’s on the ocean floor as my preferred method. i know thats not the most popular way on this forum but, one thing just occurred to me that basically sets it in stone:
you can put turbines underneath the structures (if you are moored) and then harness the water to provide energy for all your needs (check out the technology). plus it is possible, albeit expensive to do it this way.
(picture deleted because it looked ridiculous)
now one obvious problem is that when the water changes direction (does that happen on the open ocean or does it always stay the same direction?) the blades could get caught in the mooring line. but i think if you used hundreds of smaller turbines then you wont have that problem. plus theres less of a chance that a damaged turbine would disrupt the inhabitants electrical supply.

appreciated, Mr. Wohlwend
i realize there’s some people who just dont like mystical fantaseasteads. suit yourselves; for the rest of us these are like pornography for the average seasteader.
if 10K people would put down $1M each, we could build this whole entire complex and make it look WAY better than this basic Sketchup… make the condo fee $250/mo per person and theres $2.5M a month for maintenance and budgeting for major repairs.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_state – according to this article any time the waves are over 9 meters is considered “very high”, 14m is “phenomenal”. thats useful to me because im too poor to know first hand what the open ocean is like.
using that scale, if the sea is anything less than “rough”, than this structure can lower down to just 3m freeboard, which allows for the “pseudo-beach” and the airplane ramp to be used. if the sea is rough, than the structure would be raised (ballast released) to protect the top deck and make the beach and ramp unusable. isn’t that nice and simple?
i think a major selling point for the complex is that its a perfect fallout shelter. IF you can get there before it submerges, you’ll be protected under 75m of water for up to 3 months (in total luxury, too).

Here are some of my pictures.
Floating farms in Second Life.
Dragon boat floating farms. Wave powered boats with crops in them. Plants don’t get seasick.
Another varient at SL.
Bringing them togeather.
I also have another design. the Duck and deck system that someone needs to test out for me.
A ship stead.
and a tilt ship design.

I’ve posted these before but this putts them all out together.
For everyone’s information I was involved with the original Oceania Project in a small way. I’m also in several space organisations.

You’ve only got two minutes but don’t over load it with too much information: leave them with questions they want answered. Smile a lot and enunciate clearly… That’s it, now DO IT!July 23, 2011 at 2:27 am #14237
now the more i read and watch online im not as excited about it. seems like people get caught in ‘the chase’ rather than focusing on their idea. im still considering it but, also im learning about dealing with and pleasing customers with my painting business – and hopefully i can use that knowledge to help me hunt down potential buyers instead of investors. i’d much rather please a customer than some dipshit investor.

before you can sell something Shredder! What you’ve got right now are ideas that require ‘investors’ to provide capital to create. Once you have something to sell them, then you can please customers.July 24, 2011 at 8:53 pm #14297July 26, 2011 at 4:21 am #14326
From what it says, they build sections and ship them, then you assemble the sections. Sounds good, but I’d be willing to bet that each section is too large to handle alone, which eats valuable deck space, durind transportation/moving… I’d say that using something more capable of storage, like an inflatable raft, with a roll-out decking, would work better… Make it out of the same heavy-duty materials as those white-water inflatable rafts, just give it a party-barge shape and size, with twin pontoons…
Never be afraid to try something new…

here’s a new design, yes it is based on Octavians’ idea. what u guys think?
i think me, Octavian and Emmett should roll with this idea.
i know this will help certain people sleep a little better at night:

the center of gravity well below the water line which is necessarily a good thing.
