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.May 31, 2014 at 1:01 am #23610
Else I would be also really interested …May 31, 2014 at 1:00 am #23609
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.May 29, 2014 at 12:43 am #23591
The transatlantic barge is nice. I wish I had one.
The Diamond Shoal tower is nice too. Tower would be OK too.May 26, 2014 at 7:28 pm #23577

$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.April 22, 2014 at 12:34 pm #23364
Is it OK to write the words “cinder block”???April 14, 2014 at 1:39 pm #23334
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.

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.

KatOnTri, have you noticed that I do not pay rent for all that space I occupy in your mind.
Go talk to someone who care about you.February 17, 2014 at 1:52 am #22920
OK, I will try to build some fiber concrete shells. I need a dinghy.
May be, I’ll try to build one in my garage. How heavy are these shells?
I might need a trailer to transport the dinghy to water. You know, it is
not exactly ocean front property where I live. May be after the big one (earthquake).
How can these fiber concrete shells be extended to make bigger and bigger floating
structures? Would you use scaffolding techniques or something else to expand exsisting
structures? May be concrete cinder blocks?
(I just had to use the word ‘cinder’ to piss katontree off.)
Anyway; I am going to be gone; sailing for the next three days.
I’ll be back.February 16, 2014 at 12:34 am #22910
You are making perfect sense. Stop it! We can’t have that around here.February 10, 2014 at 8:25 am #22852
Your post appears to be true to me.
