nah, doesnt look like im gonna get anything from this fundraiser. but WE R OPEN for business. the product im selling is the BERGSTEAD with 1 garage or 2. The first buyer has to bear the anxiety, legal battles (with me at their side) and a higher cost to have the first one. it probably wont be quite as high quality as a production model but fully robust functionality. much of the work will be subcontracted and managed by me. if anyone likes the idea of having their own personal soveriegn island, i have the design and im ready to make it happen within 2 yrs from starting. It basically needs a qualified buyer. i have the roadmap. it takes a lot more than a spreadsheet, but i have those too!
In slide 7 you mention staying within the Contiguous zone. Is there a reason you do not go outside of 24 nm?
Within that distance “a state can exert limited control for the purpose of preventing or punishing “infringement of its customs, fiscal, immigration or sanitary laws and regulations within its territory or territorial sea”". Outside of that 24nm you are only within the EEZ to 200nm which allows the coastal country “control of all economic resources within its exclusive economic zone, including fishing, mining, oil exploration, and any pollution of those resources.”
well its not impossible to moor it beyond 24 miles. i guess it depends on how motivated you are. the mooring line gets a lot more expensive, and every trip to and from requires more fuel, and more time. this invention was intended to just be a first step outside the 12 mile mark. how close an eye do u think the gov is really gonna watch a single family ss? it could also be moved back later if necessary.
i usually assume the legal advantages get better the further outward your seastead is moored. i say that with caution, though, because we dont have true examples yet. you never know, you can think u thought of every little detail and planned accordingly. Christa McAuliffe and countless others remind us that we cant ever be sure enough.
