20 ton prototype without ballast (still without sail)
Sorry for being off topic but looking at this picture would you say that was a hazard, boats could crash into it without seeing it especially at night.September 30, 2010 at 2:29 am #11421
I’m not sure what you are trying to say here.
If you mean a seasteads management do things which are contrary to people’s basic human rights, then the risk is that some outside force may decide they don’t like the way you are running your seastead and will come and take it from you or remove the people from your seastead.
If you are talking about a security force that will protect seasteads from pirates, then they could sell insurance and assist their clients as needed, this is how the first fire brigades were set up by insurance companies, the risk is that it degenerates into a criminal protection racket.September 26, 2010 at 4:13 am #11408Ken wrote:
it’s clear that most of the spam is from live human beings, not bots.
That’s surprising, you’d think these people would have better things to do with their time, I’m sure the spam angers more than entices.
And thanks for the work you do clearing the spam.
And apologies to wohl1917.September 23, 2010 at 12:50 pm #11394
If you compare athurart09 post to wohl1917 it becomes hard to see the difference between spambots and real peopleSeptember 16, 2010 at 3:20 am #11358
I may not be reading these posts correctly, and if so I apologise, but the number of people here who seem to support, condone or tolerate slavery makes me hesitant of joining you, and if I do then I will most certainly have good strong doors, an arsensl and sleep with one eye open.September 4, 2010 at 3:06 am #11273
Snowmeow, if you want to experiment with novel mechanical systems, you might try to build a solar heated steam engine.August 14, 2010 at 12:52 pm #11127fdecruz wrote:
It sounds like a good technology. The money is still needed to build the desalination plants though.
If this is from a ‘bot, it is the most “sensible” one I ‘ve seen yet, soon we may not be able to tell ‘bots from people.August 9, 2010 at 10:48 am #11050
This is where design comes in, I would hope that the ducks will carry the weight of a seastead without sinking too much, if the idea works then they could be mass produced and used not just for seasteads, but also for wave power stations off any coast providing clean energy to a country, they could be dragged to a disaster area and provide electricity to support a relief operation.August 9, 2010 at 3:28 am #11047
If you choose the “barrel size” option then they could be a carpet of “salter’s ducks” which would absorb most of the wave energy and generate electricity at the same time, if properly designed 32 ducks each 2m x 1m might support a 10m x 10m relatively stable platform on which to build your seastead, the platform would be supported by legs attached to the “carpet” to give clearance for the ducks to move up and down with the waves.July 23, 2010 at 11:26 am #10918
The costs will vary depending on whether you buy or build your machines, a wild guess would be that you would need to sell thousands of tons of recovered materials to make the whole project economically viable, ROV’s are not suited to recovering so much material, it would be better to have a large “harvester” permanently on the seabed to do the mining, then putting the material in boxes and using airbags to lift them to the surface.
The harvester would have an umbilical cord to carry power and control from the surface.July 22, 2010 at 8:16 pm #10909
The great thing about a vertical arrangement is the opportunity to keep fit, climbing ladders to go up, and maybe coming down on a firemans/strippers pole.July 18, 2010 at 4:20 pm #10834
Build a perimeter wall on the bank and build your island on top, the area enclosed by the wall becomes your secure fish farm. outside, wave power generators produce electricity and nullifies the impact of waves against the wall.July 18, 2010 at 4:10 pm #10833
anyhoo can you give me some pics or an idea of what its about?

A nations’ EEZ extends 200nm or to the edge of the continental shelf, they will not tolerate any structure that they do not have jurisdiction over, within that area, sealand caught them by surprise, they won’t make that mistake again especially since they can excuse any action with the justification of fighting terrorism.
If you want relative independance get a boat if you want true independance build past the edge of the continental shelf and be prepared to fight to keep your independance.July 14, 2010 at 11:52 am #10769
Sealand is being tolerated by the UK government because it is irrelevant, it is not being developed, it is not causing problems for the government, it will be abandoned by the family eventually and it will ultimately fall into the sea, so the issue will go away if they ignore it long enough.
