So where is the moderator now?August 28, 2014 at 12:23 pm #23891
We are getting to the intelligent par of seasteading.August 28, 2014 at 12:21 pm #23890

I object to the F-word too that shredder used earlier.
How low is this thread going to go?
Can someone clean that out?August 27, 2014 at 11:21 am #23878
I object to the words: we and us.

You can operate whatever you want.
This thread is OK with me, and Zutai, and Ocean is OK with me.
If you do not like this thread, go start one for yourself.
The cyberspace is even bigger than the ocean.August 26, 2014 at 11:02 pm #23873
Well, I do not disagree with Ocean as much, just rather no contest. Fish farming does not exclude fishing.
I could write more, but that will build nothing.August 26, 2014 at 10:55 pm #23872
At this time I disagree with Ellmer and I disagree with Ocean.August 26, 2014 at 3:11 pm #23869
My opinion is to buld a geodesic spere. The base units would be triangles made of
rigid polyurethane foam covered with ferro cement and some steel pipes inside the foam.
The reinforcing pipes would form the core of the geodesic dome.
Each triagle would be bouyant enough to float, in case the dome falls apart it would not sink.
Or not all of it would sink.
The dome would be partially above the water, about 20%. The rest of the dome would be flooded.
The under water part of the dome could be used for farming fish, nor else.
The above the water part would be possible to seel water tight in case the need to submerge the
Structural triagle part of the dome, spere could be prefabricated on land and assembled in water.
Different sizes of domes could be built. I would start with a small one.
The fish farm square, that was built in Hawaii is , I guess 27 feet diameter.August 26, 2014 at 9:20 am #23866
I agree with Ocean. I disagree with Elmer.August 26, 2014 at 9:07 am #23864
Thank you for posting; Peter. I will send you an email.August 25, 2014 at 3:46 pm #23856
Ocean; I like idea of “…what’s next?”
Elmer; I like the dutch pod hotel. Specially the one with the woman in it.
cube or sphere, I like th outdoors. Though I like comfort too, like bathroom,
washing machine and dryer and other stuff. I like sailing and scuba diving and
swimming (no sharks) kayaking … etc… So I would come out of the sphere
just like I get out of the cube too.August 25, 2014 at 1:22 pm #23852
May be a little more explanation about the spherical structure:
…most likely made of ferro-cement
…modular building, where parts could be made on land and assembled in water
…the floating could be adjusted back and forth to be partially submerged and to completely
submerged to depth 2-3 times the height of the waves
…it would be anchored to the sea floor or anchored with sea-anchors in deep water
…some engines with propellers would be necessary to hold positionAugust 25, 2014 at 1:11 pm #23851
That appears to be true what you wrote about the king. I think, that is called: captain , on a vessel.
There is a difference between a vessel and a floating structure. I thin international law (marine-time law)
recognizes it. Florida state law definitely recognizes this difference, and has different registrations for them.
As long as a king or a captain goes, the political point of a seastead would be that individuals can come and
leave as they wish. So when there is a bad captain, and there are bad rules, that captain can enjoy loneliness.
The start would be probably individual seasteads, and the builder would be the owner and the captain.
I would like to use the word captain instead of king. The captain can determine who may come aboard, and under
The reason of why there is no physical seasteads built yet, may be that persons cannot agree on the rules of the
seastead. Kind of like “if I do not get this or that, then I am not interested building the seastead.
This could also be an escape and a justification for persons who have lots of words but little actions.
In my opinion ocean farming is a way to overcome this.
I think, the first thing would be necessary is to build something strong enough to support life in open ocean conditions
under any weather. A spherical structure seems to be reasonable. This spherical structure would be mostly submerged,
so big waves would roll over it. Further more it would be beneficial if the sphere could be submerged completely
under water depth 2 or 3 times the height of the waves. The first and experimental structures would need to be small.
I think it could become a kind of ocean farming seastead. It could be a single person operation. And there could be
multiples of these in close proximity to each other. Each ocean farming seastead would have a captain, and there the
plot thickens: how would these captains cooperate and get along with each other and with the main land.
Well, something like this.
This is not a discussion or question and answer kind of communication.
It is more like lamentation.
