    “For entertainment, there is sex, stargazing”

    Stargazing will be the more amazing of the two until I have absorbed the whole night sky out there. What a great place for that stuff. I would want regular stargazing blackouts in my community.

    There are quite a few land sports that would work in somewhat small area such as half court basketball and racquetball that could be played on gyrating courts. As far as water sports go, kayak polo is killer fun. I could see that being a big sport.

    Although if you could see the rogue waves coming only the seastead itself might need to survive it, the people (and crops and/or) livestock) could drop down below the wave in sumarines. That way a structure would only need to be habitabal during normal bad weather for the region.

    Your welcome. It will be fun to see what you guys come up with!

    I do not know much about rogue waves but that sounds about right to me. A very big wall of water presumably.

    If you could affordably negate a rogue wave for any seastead design that would be awesome. I may be mistaken but I believe the institute is moving towards ring weave bases with discarded tires instead of the floating spar design.

    What scale were you thinking here? And what materials? I think any seastead that could be submerged below the waves for storms would be awesome if done right.

    A good place to start would be to watch the movie “Hemp Revolution” on netflix or google video. It grows in almost every soil type, repairs the soil, fixes nitrogen and leaves other nutrients for the next crop. It has a very high cellulose content ~60-70%. It can be grown for its seeds for an excellent protein source or fuel, or for its long strong fiber. Each variety (that I know of) is only good at producing good seeds or good fiber. Most everything that can be made from hemp uses very little or no chemicals in the process.

    Hemp rope and sails were necessary for ships way back when for their strength and resistance to UV rays and salt. It will be interesting to see if there are any uses for it on a seastead.

    Jason, you could use a dichroic filter to reflect specific wavelengths for plants and allow others to pass through to the pv for electricity. Probably not economical.

    I bet we all end up sleeping in hammocks. Comfortable, stackable, packs away into small space leaving floorspace for the day, swings you to sleep in rolling sea.
