    General rule : The platform size should be 2-3 times the wavelength in the area of operation or it will track the waves what makes live aboard VERY unpleasent.

    I was thinking about the same but decided that best rule is to take in account the biggest wave. not close to the shore waves (cos they can be even 85 meters – 279 ft in height) but in the middle of the ocean.

    I found that the biggest “rogue wave” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogue_wave
    is 48 m (157 ft):

    “Fastnet Lighthouse Struck by 48 m (157 ft) wave in 1985 [28]”

    So steatead platform should be not less then 48 m (157 ft).
    But the more they are the more comfortable it will be. What is the recommended size? I’m not sure.

    why length?

    is it 2-3 times length waves enough not to have seasick?

    if so then I suppose that 48 * 3 = 144 m (472 ft) is best recommended size.

    in addition the best form must strive to round form (we don’t assume to move so we don’t need a boat form), it means that 144 m (472 ft) should be size of length and width

    If length and width has some ratio aspect (3:4, 4:5 …) the short size shouldn’t be not less then 144 m (472 ft)

    What do you think?

    I tend to think about the need to choose the larget dimensions of the platform to avoid the need to run away from storms and waves. especially if ones intend to create more than one platform. But the city
