    Had an idea for a seastead that has three “wings” that would point toward the waves while holding up a triangle shaped platform.

    Just a thought.

    Here’s a crappy quick diagram I put together with google sketch with the basic concept.

    Hmmm… It seems good, it would seem to a floating jack-up, and modularity would be guaranteed by this triangular form.

    But I have some reservations how about these elyptical “winged” columns. If a rough wave hit the columns in the wider side, it wouldn’t tilt the seastead and sink it? I preferred to use cylindrical columns, that receive waves from any side with the same endurance.
