i think the new direction we should explore is co-operating with current sea-steaders, known as liveaboards and cruisers.
The first liveaboard I know of was Harry Pidgeon, and since then it’s been an ever […]
one of the best things for a storm, a more tried and tested version than having a wing shaped deck,
is using a sea-anchor, which works best with a canoe-shaped stern, then can have bow face the […]
if you can sail into dock, then save your fuel, and the environment.
ideally of course, you would not use an engine at all.
it’s really a waste, if y
if you want solid superstructure on top can look at wingsails, which look like air-plane wings on boats sideways.
Looks like we be having a mild reunion.
I’d like to inform the newcomers, that a) artificial islands only refers to things stuck into the ground,
whereas what we may term “floating islands” are really just […]
oops. I had an extra 0 in my spreadsheet. so actually the thickness of 6cm is more appropriate instead of 20. and that would mean the large one has depth of 5.35m without any extra weight. also the cost is much […]
Mostly a Seastead would be looking at farming aquatic vegetation and animals.
For instance with the Pillarstead design I have there is significant underwater “seafloor”,
on which various seacreatures can […]

Yes, you can promote it.
The best way is of course by being the change.
You can have a boat even in winter by having a bubbler or water agitator,
it will bring warm water from bottom, and melt the water […]
Then again if incoming ships use anti-fouling,
I guess it would defeat the purpose of having pristine interior waters…
so could just have a simple-c with gate, or else force anti-foulers to dock outside […]
If scaled up to have 100m^2 per floor or ~1000square feet, 8 floors,
then shell costs about half a million, and has 1/4 hectare or 2/3 acre of seafloor ballast.
though if it’s as is now, water depth will only […]
So noted that common wave height is 8m,
and previously read that a boat can be capsized by a wave 55% of it’s waterline length,
I’m hoping it’s a significantly higher percentage for underwater length.
Hey, so I updated the design, to increase the amount of submerged section.
A big disk as you mentioned, about 11m in diameter. can be used for buoys, or dock fittings.

So get a sailboat to live on, and you’ll be on your way to seasteading.
that wouldn’t really work, as if you had cables that are so long, you’d need very high voltage, and likely even alternating current, to get any of that electricity to the other side, besides that you might have […]
bah, anyways here is a link to the image http://weyounet.info/blog/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/2012-10-26-020652_1280x1024_scrot.png
here is the image, didn’t seem to work previous time
hey so after reviewing some seasteading designs,
and realizing that a common feature is pillars,
while issue being that people build ontop of pillars,
and so the pillars themselves aren’t used for much.
Thereby I […]
