I’m Steve, and I live in North Carolina. I’m interested in seasteading because I want to build an aquaculture fish farm in the North Atlantic. I envision a spar platform towing a line of fish cages, with a second seastead at the other end as a processing plant. Employees would live in a seastead of their own, or in the processing plant. I haven’t fleshed this out yet, but it is my idea.
I currently work as a Correctional Officer, and am an Anglican Priest as well.
Yeah, that’s kind of where I got the idea. However, you would have to get some kind of setup with some fishermen to take the harvest to shore.
I could imagine setting up a whole farming community like this, with a factory platorm in a central location to the community. But for starters, it would have to be some sort of startup family business.
Welcome, Steve! Don’t let the ‘gods’ that know-it-all scare you off. I’ve been mostly silent, for a while, since the whole mega-conglom-corp seasteads became the vogue… You might search for the FLIP ship and FLIP II and look at some of my ideas, around the sparstead stuff. I worked-out some Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaponics (IMTA) stuff, too… Good luck!
Never be afraid to try something new…
Remember, amateurs built the ark, professionals built the Titanic.
I saw an idea that I really like and would like to work on myself. The idea is a spar with lifeboats on either side. If, instead of using lifeboats, you used pontoons with a catamaran top (or that hexagonal catamaran I saw somewhere on this site), you could construct a relatively cheap and affordable seastead that could be launched from land horzontally and (as the FLIP does) move to a vertical position. You could even design a submarine section attached to the bottom to house the propulsion and ballast, as well as a nice underwater view.
At any rate, I have to download Blender again in order to get what I’m trying for.
