    Hi;
    .
    My opinion is; that it would work.
    .
    I live in Southern-California. I know a few people who have a boat. I know some people who fish.
    If there were a floating kelp mass just out of EEZ, 200 nMiles from shore, some people would go there to fish.
    .
    The kelp mass could be anchored. That would take long lines and strong efforts and a few anchors.
    .
    This could develop a small community of boaters and fishers, who go there to fish.
    And it could develop into a “point of interest”.

    and that no one has a clue how or why a land-based business would ever be afloat

    Hi;
    .
    My opinion is sovereignty. All dry lad is claimed by countries. Governments tax people, businesses, properties…
    and whatever they can tax. The taxation is often a limiting factor to the business.
    Outside of EEZ, on the ‘high seas’ there is more sovereignty. Sovereign seasteading entities can compete against
    eachother with minimal interference from governments and taxation.
    We are not sure where a competition like that can lead, but there are some examples as Hong Kong, Singapore, … etc
    .
    I think, it is possible that a seas has an advantage, compared to a land-based business.
    .
    I also think that, meanwhile lots of people will stay on land, and I think that is all right.
    .
    I also think seasteading is all right too.
    .
    I like the sea. If I am Free to Choose; I choose seasteading.
    .
    Respectfully yours;

    Ellmer;
    .
    Thank you. It is wonderful. I am just one person. I think it is difficult to move that forming ring by myself.
    .
    The question would be; what is the simplest smallest thing I can build alone?
    Or with limited amount of people.
    .
    Do you build ferrocement boats?

    Hi Ellmer;
    .
    Where do I pour the concrete?

    Hello;
    .
    “James Castillo, commander of the 11th Coast Guard District; Seth Stodder, president and CEO of Palindrome Strategies”
    .
    Well, just a minute:
    “A palindrome is a word, phrase, number, or other sequence of symbols or elements, whose meaning may be interpreted the same way in either forward or reverse direction.”
    .
    Is this a word game?
    .
    This might be the world’s longest palindrome.-)))

    Hello;

    Ancient Man: Thank you for sharing all that.

    ellmer: Lets get going with that concrete sphere.

    Greetings to all;

    Mr. Elian Wilson: I think that is a good idea.

    Hi;
    .
    I think the sphere is a good idea.
    There might be some underwater LNP storage ideas too.
    .
    It would be good to build one and place it somewhere, under water,
    to see the possible use, and the possible future of it.
    .
    There is still EEZs (Exclusive Economic Zones) so a country government can
    object to placing something like that on the seabed in EEZ. Outside of EEZs there
    is still the ISA (International Seabed Authority). The ISA can object.
    Enforcing the objection would be a different thing. I would go ahead with the
    sphere just to see the objections, and the enforcements of those objections.
    .
    The water column is still the ‘High Seas’ = no jurisdiction outside of EEZ, so probably
    that is the reason for the floating structures. A sphere can be floating too, just like
    the concrete submarine.
    .
    Building structures like that on land and launching them to sea might require permission of
    the local authorities/governments.
    .
    It might be easier to develop a smaller universal building block/unit that can be manufactured
    on land and a structure can be assembled in water.
    .
    So whatever it is going to be, I am sure there is going to be better and better ideas.
    I think, pioneering the process is important.
    .
    This thing might be good for me and might be good for others too.

    Hi Ellmer;

    This honeycomb structure would be interesting.

    May be new kind of building units can be developed. Like the building units for
    houses can be a cinder block. May be a new kind of cinder block, unique shape and size,
    could be produced on land, and a structure can be assembled in the water.

    Hi Ocean;

    I am glad to be in the same group with you.
    I would like to see the pictures.
    One good way to show them, is to put them up in an Internet storage area, like http://www.flickr.com/
    and post the web address of your pictures here in the blog.

    The double hull design has a storage capacity of 120,000 (onboard) plus 500,000 barrels to be provided by a distant moored Floating Storage Unit (FSU) and later a shuttle tanker. The hull is 395ft long by 175ft wide. The vessel weighs around 10,000t, excluding topsides module and helideck. The load bearing capacity is 16,000t. The octagonal steel helicopter deck measures 22.2m by 22.2m and is suitable for EH101 type helicopters.
