Before we’ll get to the “natural order” we’ll have to pay the piper
On second thoughts, since this is strictly business talk, the further you move from shore, the more is gonna cut into your profit margin since it will cost more to transport your product to the markets. Also, practically speaking, I personally think such a business…[Read more]
You do have some valid points,…in your pessimistic ways
I did say “it could” be offshore, out of the gut feeling that if inside the federal or state waters there has to be some cluster fuck somewhere, also out of a desire NOT to deal with idiocracy. What I also forgot to mention is that the whole Florida Key is designated a National…[Read more]
Come again?…Moving this forum on a seasteding platform?? When is that gonna happen, Ken?
Thanks for the links. I’ll do some browsing.
I will never understand how “lack of regulations” translates as “a major barrier” instead of “OK, do whatever you want”…
A “floating foundation” (something like a floating dock) can be built cheaper than $200/sq.ft., even in US. Adding on to that float to finish it into a floating house will be the bulk of the expense. Also, keep in mind that the floating house will have to be docked somewhere in order to be plugged into the grid, unless is is anchored, which…[Read more]
It looks like kelp can be eaten.
And their website here:
It does look like seaweed is grown on horizontal lines, in really shallow waters very close to…[Read more]
Spark,…I hope you know that I love you…
But if you come up with this sci-fi “vertical mobility” underwater BS man,…you are not helping at all.
I asked for brainstorming, not fantasizing, my friend.
Back on the subject,…please.
No I don’t think it will be kelp. Kelp is a cold water seaweed,… Can you eat kelp?? That’s why I called for…[Read more]
Maybe 100% self-reliance in food production on a seastead is possible, but definitely not probable due to the high cost of allocating (building) the space for production in comparison to just buying and shipping food in bulk on a seastead.
Anyway, I was thinking the other day that maybe a promising venture for a seasteading start up would be…[Read more]
The 2009 Human Rights Watch
(HRW) Country Report has classified Singapore as ‘an authoritarian state with strict curbs on
freedom of expression, assembly and association; denial of due process rights; draconian
defamation laws; and tight controls on independent political activity…internal security and criminal

LOL, $600 Mil. “anchoring system”… That’s gonna fly with the investors
In terms of your efforts, it is unclear what your project is or what business are you into.
Your website is not marketable in the present “forum format” in which you just blog about seasteading, that won’t get you investors.
Just mentioning the Cartagena Marine “Cluster” or other projects without an actual business plan or presentation in hand,…[Read more]
I am not mad at you and I thank you for trying to help and I wish you the best of luck with your project(s).
What you don’t seem to understand is:
1. I don’t need investors.
2. We are planning to develop this project as a non profit organization.
LOL, “PILOT PROJECTS”? A dirty guy with a stick sitting on a 4 feet round ferrocement tub?
That’s gonna get investors flocking in, for sure.
The small size of my project (under 100′ LOA) doesn’t justify the effort of registering offshore. The goal of my project is not to escape US taxation, but to test the sustainability of oceanic habitation And growth is a by-product of sustainability.
Since you mention taxation, the only way to create a GDP on US soil without it, is to…[Read more]
What I’m trying to do is something new. I don’t care what “card” I’m giving away, by who’s definition or not. Is got to be movable. Period. $50/year State of Florida vessel registration.
I’m not looking for an investor, maybe few working partners down the road.
Why should I be policed if I’m legal? This ain’t Columbia,…
As I said before, Cartagena is out of reach for me.
For what I’m trying to do in the future here in Florida, I have to think as a boater because it will be classified as a “vessel” since it will mobile and will be moored. Since it won’t be docked in a marina, I won’t be able to plug into any grid, therefore, I have to deal with the “basics” using…[Read more]
I never said anything about “scrap” houseboats. And why would a project of a houseboat floating community for the working middle or poor class people would be labeled as a “slum”,…That’s poor quality Latin America elitism.
If it’s so simple in Columbia, than just do it.
But not all “pixels” are created equal. Different countries, different regulations. If you “float” anything “commercial” in US you WILL have to deal with the CG regulation and they WILL supervise the construction process. Because if it floats it has to be built @ marine standards.
I’m with you on the basics. But, I think is gonna cost you much more than $260k to build it. For example, you estimated $20k for all infrastructure. If you meant for the 60’x 60′ float alone, you are at $5.5/sq.ft. There is no way you can build to last for that price, even if you DIY.
Regardless, the question is, why build? Assuming this is…[Read more]
You can use whatever materials you want and plug in whatever grid is available to your “non-boater prospective” in the middle of Cartagena Bay. As for Bocagrande, it’s not floating, it’s on land, last time I checked.
