One thing I know is that things break. There will always be a market for people like me that can fix them. I am really looking forward to this because as a lifelong maintenance guy, I would love to live on a seastead practicing my trade.
hello after looking at seveal options and yet have not seen any real,
proposals. Todays socities is base on a Instant Youth,
Instant meals, and such with no thought on how things are made or where they come from.
In order to have a total self suficiant Socities on must go back to the basics
Total use of Resorces, and yes it won’t be easy, No simple fixes.
Ok food storage options
Old Fashond Canning usiing Glass Jars
dehydrated food storage
Cooling systems should be powered by Electricy/Gas
Gas meaning Hydrogen
Make hydrogen through electrolysis, sea water is pumped in to Processing tank, electrolysis breaks is down to Hydrogen and Oxigen. the hydrogen Is then use to power genatarors, cooking and such. Oxigen would be piped through ventalation systems, and storage refill sights for Dive Tanks and such.
all Genarators Should have Stanless Steel Exhaust and the by product of burning hydrogen is water. which is recollected.
Distilling of Sea Water, set up a boiler system Useing hydrogen Burner, the Steam would be used to Power other Food Processing systems ( such has Gran processing Mills ) to make Flour, or corn meal.
By Product of the Water Distilling would be Sea Salt
Which could be exported if not used for other process , such as Curing of meat or Turned in to Clorine
ok so where Does the Electricty come from for the electrolysis, in the First place solar panels on deack for shade or roofs on barns for Farm animals
The First Thing to Build is The Floating Farm out of a Old Tanker of some sort above deck is coverd with irragation system concisting of Farming tiles and Gravel covered with Top soil,
Corn grown for feed of livestock, cooking oil , processed in to ethonal or yes moonshine.
Grapes for juice and wine.
Rice for food and sakie
patatos food and vodka
soybeans cooking oil, tofu
and other comon veg.
cows for meat milk and cheese
rabbits for meat
chickens eggs and meat
pigs for meat
Bees for Pollination of crops and Honey and meade
Freash water Fish Farming Catfish, Cropie, Trout, Bass
so basically what we need is to get a small Labratory the can Process the Sea Salt, Make Cooking oils, and other items that can be made from crops and animals
So I am new here, and I have to say that I love this concept. I’ve actually thought about this before, but never knew there were so many people working on/interested in it.
I was reading some of the ideas in this tread and it ocured to me… The GOLD RUSH!!! People need something, a promise of a better future or just money beyond their dreams, to make them take this plunge. This is was made people expand westard in the US in search of gold, to texas in search of oil. It is what has lead to most of the major ‘frontier’ movements in history. Sure, people will move under socioeconomic pressures, but not without the motivation that there will be something better on the other end.
An improved standard of living, an oportunity for profit, along with the increase of freedom should drive people into Seasteads.
