    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.

    Hi Steve!! Its nice to have you here!

    this sounds like an interesting idea you have. has there been a comparison between this and factory ships?

    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.

    (What in my idea is proprietary?)

    i was just saying, before you answered to be careful not to disclose anything publicly if you might want to keep it private for the future.

    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…

    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.
