    Greetings.

    Am enthused to find this organization, and looking forward to participating on some meaningful developments.

    Now semi-retired software geek, I have a personal desire to establish or participate in an ‘Intentional Community’,
    and being a boater, prefer to try it on the water. Love the goal of this .Org, being better self government to pursue
    alternative social governing processes.

    Having spent some time researching conversions of old ferry’s, dry cargo ships etc, the engineering and financial
    structures seem to be straightforward. The “Social” contract however, intrigues me as the most difficult to resolve.
    So I wish to start there.
    I would like to exchange thoughts, and review By-Laws anyone has researched as a good
    social solution for small group, i.e. 25-100 people. (I will be trolling the forums here shortly).

    I also located a small ship I am considering that is available for purchase, and looking for potential partners.
    This is a 2005 82′ Steel hull, unfinished, with room for 3-4 staterooms, or 5-6 depending on layout.
    In the area of $45k – $50k per share for say 5 partners. We could also make more fractional, down to 1/12
    or Monthly shares for anyone thinking part time, then only approx $4,000 per single month share.

    Ongoing (strata style) variable costs would be planned at break even, based on food and fuel needs, and scaled
    whether the owner is aboard, or absent.

    Anyone seriously able to participate and currently free (or able to live/work in the Caribbean via Internet),
    who would like to discuss please contact me directly. I will post a more developed outline in another Forum shortly.

    Many thanks to the Seasteading organizing team.

    I’m a fellow Canadian :-)

    we have “unofficial” forum rules

    http://www.seasteading.org/interact/forums/research/law-and-politics/forum-rules-and-policies

    Also earlier made a constituion:

    http://www.seasteading.org/interact/forums/research/philosophy-and-law/a-constitution

    it’s based on math and spirituality to make sure people could become fullfilled.

    oh yes, neo-tribes :-). it’s one of my main focuses.

    Er, you’re probably gonna find trouble getting investors of $4,000 a year, at least around here.

    Also steel is too expensive and difficult to repair to be a seastead.

    Seasteading is more of a Do It Yourself thing at this point, or Bring Your Own Boat,

    preferably a submersible boat made from ferrocement,

    generally aren’t in production so gotta DIY.

    Though Ellmer in Columbia is making concrete-submarines and docks for 330 euro ($500) a ton volume,

    Shredder in America is making bergsteads, dreamed for million-dollar investors,

    Logan (myself) in Canada is making semi-submersible, costing near $500 a ton volume.

    Shredder has a pool model, I have a one person dinghy.

    Ellmer has already made both a 20ton submarine, and a 200ton submarine,

    along with a bunch of other floating structures,.

    Logan is planning on making floating drydocks anchored along Toronto’s shore line, to construct larger concrete boats. Not sure of how it’ll all work out, though even with exponential growth, it’ll be a few more years before can have a house sized boat produced.

    I’d probably have to be compatible with canadian boat regulations if I planned to sell in Canada, hmmm.

    Ongoing (strata style) variable costs would be planned at break even, based on food and fuel needs, and scaled
    whether the owner is aboard, or absent.

    The system that is more likely to work for you, considering how rich you are,

    is that you could have a boat, and lure in crew by offering food, shelter and a stipend,

    if they like being your crew, helping fish-farm and what not,

    then they’ll be a part of the community.

    We You Net, is the name of my intentional community in Toronto,

    our goal is creating reproducing technologically enabled family communities.

    Once we amass a fleet, can split, some can stay, others can go to spread to other parts of the world.

    There has been a lot of practical discussion regarding establishing a base and gathering a floating community in the Carribean, especially Belize, in http://seasteading.org/interact/forums/community/irl-gtgs/seasteading-outpost-belize . This is also one of the longest if not the longest thread in the forum.Your proposal sounds very interesting.
