Can you provide links for the marine satellite tv/internet? This would be useful.
I’ve always envisioned a platform able to move in 2 axis with a wheel spinning in the center to stabilize the platform. This would provide a stable mount for a satellite dish (VSAT). This should take care of peoples’ needs.

I think that the conclusions of the SOBIZ post were outlined by PJ about 5 or 6 threads above….I do agree with you that due to interference those conclusions got blurred a bit….but “the do something” you are talking about was very specific and clear, along the lines of your idea for a “seasteading club” in the format of signing up a certain numbers of people FINANCIALLY COMMITTED to start a COMMUNITY that will PHYSICALLY START DEVELOPING SOBIZ, based on the 6 fundamantal organizational principles outlined above.
So, PJ was right when he said “Folks need to decide if they’re willing to contribute and work towards this project or not. There is nothing more to discuss in an open forum like this.”
The only thing left to do, IMHO is to split this forum. Start a new forum called SOBIZ – THE SEASTEADING BELIZE PROJECT as a link from here for the people who want to join, and only for them! Outline AGAIN in this new forum those few fundamental organizational principles and the fact this is a sign up purpose ONLY post, and take it from there.
For those who still just want to only talk about it, they can do it here, for as long as they want….
PJ and Ocean,
I don’t see a link to the new forum called SOBIZ – THE SEASTEADING BELIZE PROJECT . Did I miss it?

To colonize space, even in LEO, you are going to have to lift hundreds of thousands of metric tons of basic materials out of the gravity well. And that will not happen with any current lift technologies.
Lifting that much is just not financially feasable, even at $100 / lb. You need to build the station using insitu materials, asteroids for instance, and only launch equipment too difficult to make in space.

Is Cartagena the best place for your business then? Perhaps the USA or the Med would be closer to customers?

Why don’t you post a for sale notice here and see what happens.

Should the platform be inverted? This would eliminate any swamping concerns, and 7 connected platforms with buildings on them is a sizeable SFS. $21K for “Land” is a great price.

While the price of each unit is fantastic, I’m alittle concerned about freeboard. 54 cm. is about 21 in. this might be ok where you are but not most places.

I disagree with your assessment of Oceanopolis’s implimentation. Oceanopolis is trying to get this moving. The timeframe is 1 – 2 years I believe, and he is trying to make things affordable. Both great goals. The first version of a seastead coming in at $40K per unit, and he is currently working on reducing the price. These prices assume a $15K price tag for the boat, high, considering the price of boats today. I hope to be living on something like this early next year. A number of these units rafted together to make a floating hotel could show people they can make a living at seasteading. Adding telecommunication capabilities could provide housing for telecommuters for all the people sick of the Kalifornia socialist government.August 15, 2010 at 10:52 pm #11140
So, is this how the Egyptians made the Piramides?
But this does seem like a good posibility for construction of seasteads.August 10, 2010 at 11:53 pm #11071
Is the hugh cost of “A full service marina parked about 25 miles (so the locals don’t get upset) off shore of a major city (i.e. Miami)” caused by the “25 miles”, the “Commercial” part, “Very large yachts and boats which or hard to find dockage”, all of the above, or ? ? I had a similar idea and would like to know where the cost jump comes from.

I wasn’t thinking of a classified section tho that could prove usefull. I was thinking of a list of recommended or not recommended equipment based on your personal experience with it. Which brands / types of boats are best for newbies for instance. What composting toilets work best at sea. Galley equipment, etc. What ever a person would need to live on/ under the sea. Hope that’s more clear.

Yes, I’ve seen that design. I was thinking more along the lines of either barrels or paint buckets connected together to form a ring. They would not move as one piece,but independently of each other. Heave plates would stop the bobbing so as not to propagate the wave.

Have you tried making a breakwater out of cylindars laying on their sides instead of the flat walls? They might work better as they provide a slopping surface for the wave.

Wil, For those of us who expect a little more, how much for a 15 M diameter dish with a 3/8th geo dome cover, and arm stumps. I’m thinking the arm stumps will provide 2 of 3 fish net supports.
