    Good luck to you with your short fiction.

    I would think, that the 3×3 modules could be sub-scale prototypes.
    30×30 sounds better for the real thing.

    The ‘honeycomb’ modules could be 30×30, I would think.

    I am not sure, but I try to think about these structures as three dimensional structures.
    What ever is above the water could be just the ‘tip of the iceberg’ .

    By the way, there might be more data about icebergs, how they float, and stand up to
    storms and waves.

    It is late here, and I am just writing down random thoughts.

    It’s more than what I built.

    I would think, the reason for the honeycomb structure is modularity.
    Each ‘honeycomb’ base unit can be manufactured individually and
    attached together to form a larger unit of whatever size.

    Whoever, I could not observe this kind of modularity of the structure
    shown on the above picture.

    Are you on the picture, Elmer?

    Hi;

    I think these are nice plans.

    There are many individual boats on the sea. Some have a little community on them.
    In my opinion seasteading could be a bigger community.
    In a community, persons have to get along with each other. The community has to
    police itself from within. May be libertarian ideas: the one who initiates violence
    is in the wrong. Having rules are nice, specially when those rules are enforced, and
    specially when those rules are based on common consent of those who have to live by it.

    But, I think, there is still no seastead. Nothing is out there, floating on the ocean.
    In my opinion, ephemerisland is the only floating thing out there.

    And there would be people to build a seastead,
    but before building, the builders have to come to an agreement with each other
    on simple and understandable terms.

    This forum would be a good place to develop agreements on simple and on understandable
    terms. But that is not happening in practice.

    There are people, right now, out on the oceans. They are in boats. In my opinion that is
    also seasteading. There are people around Florida who “live on the hook”. They live on
    boats and they anchor here and there. Some have decades of experience in that.

    I think, that is the extent seasteading exists right now. I accept that existence, and
    I am choosing it. I am selling my house, and moving to Florida. I am planning to buy
    a sailboat and “live on the hook”, or something close to that.

    I would like to communicate with others on simple and understandable terms to form a community
    that would police itself within, and defend itself from outside threats. In both of that, I
    think, diplomacy is the right way to start.

    Respectfully;

    I won’t be on the Diamond Shoals unless it’s a hostile takeover, simply because there’s no way to get in touch with the owner, so one cannot get permission to be on it. I wonder if a private owner of non-boat property that’s not in a state jurisdiction can enforce trespassing laws.

    On June-02-2014 I ‘got in touch’ with the owner of Diamond Shoals Light Tower.

    Hi;

    I would be really interested where and how to moor a boat for free in Florida.
    Else I would me also really interested about how to live on the hook.

    This would be a start for me. I am planning to build more.

    The transatlantic barge is nice. I wish I had one.
    The Diamond Shoal tower is nice too. Tower would be OK too.

    OCEANOPOLIS:
    $100,000.00 just to start up.

    For that money you can be seasteading all year long in the Florida Keys…

    I am back home from a 5 days camping tour at the Florida Keys. Nice. I think, I will move.

    The end of May 2014 I will take a trip to Florida for a week.
    I am planning to move there for a while, and this trip is just to see
    what I will need to do to make it happen.
    I am planning to be in Fort Lauderdale.

    Salt Water Concrete—A Reality

    David B. South Yesterday, 2:07 p.m. The President’s Sphere

    Over the years, I have received numerous calls asking about the feasibility of building Ecoshell I Domes along the coasts of islands throughout the world. It is common knowledge that using salt water, sea water or salty sand is not a possibility when building concrete structures. The problem with using anything salty doesn’t lie with the concrete; the problem is with steel reinforcing. The minute steel reinforcing comes in contact with salt water, it begins to rust. As steel rusts, it expands and breaks up the surrounding concrete. This is not new knowledge, it is a simple fact that this will happen every time.

    Dutch Design Firm To Create Floating Islands in Maldives

    Posted by Luxlife on Aug 18, 2012 in Design | 0 comments

    As a result of climate change the ocean is overtaking the Maldives at a rate of around 3.3mm per year. By building innovative structures this nation of more than 300,000 people hopes to stay above water.The Maldivian government has signed a deal with Dutch Docklands International, an architecture firm that specializes in floating developments and infrastructures, to build artificial islands that will be able to rise along with the sea level.
