    Hello,
    Well, saving money: what money?
    We are trying to get to an agreement and from that to a cooperated effort.
    In plain English, agree to do something together.
    “we”
    Im my opinion, it is important to know what each word means.
    The same words and phrases can mean different things to different people.
    So, first we going to have to hammer it out with words. It is we, because
    in my mind I already know what I mean. I am a legend of my own mind, and
    I see that I am not alone.
    Instead of saveing money , I would like to use the term ‘low budget’.
    -))) no hard feelings.

    Hi,
    For me, seasteading represents a certain extent of sovereignty .
    All land is claimed by counrties. So it is possible to buy a land under
    that countries sovereignty, that owns it. But sovereignty is not fo sale.
    It will probably have to be on stilts, or it will have to float, or it
    will have to be under water on this planet. Could be all the three different
    ways, and more. I am not against the combination of all of those.
    .
    The basic thing would be, by my opinion, is free movement of people between
    seasteads, or anywhere else they might want to go.

    So, the natural laws: (or Laws)
    Biological systems, animals and echosystems defend self by
    (my way of understanding it)
    hide, run, hide, run, fight, play dead
    Play dead may be a way of hiding.

    Hi ellmer,
    Sure, you are right. Please delete my comment.
    No hard feelings.

    Hi ellmer;

    Seems to it is true that:
    “It is not about how deep – it is about avoid wave crest impacts,
    and intermitent liquid air contacts.”
    .
    I did some surfing in California, and I swam in the ocean a lot.
    I did body surfing too. Seems like going a little bit under the water
    makes it a lot easier to avoid the effect of waves.
    .
    My idea, at this time, would be to make a dome shaped ferrocement structure
    and rest it on a catamaran shape double hull. With water ballast the structure
    could sink a bit under surface and the sphere shaped dome would not be affected
    much by the waves, the double hull could be deep enough.
    Emptying the water ballast, the dome would be completely out of water and it
    would be possible to tow the structure like a catamaran barge.
    And to build it a modular way: geodesic dome, and etc…
    You know, crazy ideas section.

    How far under the surface?
    I guess, a wave effects the water movement deep four times it’s height.
    A 20 m, 60 ft wave 4x20m=80m, 320ft.
    Would the platform need to go 1x,2x,3x,4x deeper than hight of wave?
    I am sure the military has infirmation about submarine safety.
    There miggt be some declassified information from ww2.
    The Germans must have written something about it.

    And after all of this, nothing floats.

    He could quite easily use a simple gun, to start taking pot shots around your boat, and scare you off.
    .
    In a place, where everybody has a gun it is not so much fun to point a gun at anyone.

    For me this would be a good way to start:
    “On the other hand, if you don’t piss anyone off, and keep your head down, I doubt anyone is going to be bothered enforcing some UN mandate on a bunch of hippies living in the middle of the ocean.”
    .
    Just low profile, low investment, acceptable loss, fishing, no controversial stuff like pot
    or other drugs or wild party float or sex drugs and rock and roll.
    .
    Some people will get angry anyways, but they will only talk.
    It takes effort to go out to a platform to do something about it, good or bad.
    .
    Have your own boat, drift away, get it done, get back, keep a low profile on platform.
    .
    But just because that is my idea it does not mean that others will comply.
    So, good luck to all.
    .

    I am not interested about buying a boat.

    Ferrocement coating a steel hull. Would that require a dry dock?
