Legal questions? Who knows if anyone would try to claim anything from the debris.
Instant seastead? That’s an awful lot of free material to work with…
Getting a salvage vessel(s) out there might be an ordeal, but once recovery of materials begins, a rudimentary platform could be constructed while at sea. From that point, it’d be a matter of building it out. I’m game; it’s more productive than Occupying Wall Street.
hey – that is really a lot of material ! we had a mining the pacific garbage patch thread and found that there is not enough material floating out there in the garbage patch – looks like now there is !
Get a ship – and a method to bond everything together – a concrete sprayer would be great – the wood and all would sink sooner or later but at that time the plate seastead would already have enough buoyancy on its own.
You can use all the debris as a imporvised floating dock to build somthing really big on top of it. My favorite a enormous plate seastead in stadion size… or just rearrange the debris in form of a ring and create a Breakwater lagoon marina.
Problem is, some, if not all of it is contaminated with radioactive material… Whatcha gonna do about that? Imagine wrking in that heat, in protective suits, while scanning the materials and selecting the stuff you can salvage…
Never be afraid to try something new…
