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

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.July 1, 2010 at 6:17 pm #10625
To give me a similar floor area to my SFS, I would need 7 octopods at a cost of £186,060 and that still would not give me as much space as I think necessary, if I were paying to lift every gramme into space, I would also say astronauts will like living like battery hens, but I must consider living in a seastead for the rest of my life.
The sea is a dangerous place and lives will probably be lost if family members go swimming in the open ocean, inshore, there is a significant risk of being run over by boats, that’s how Kirsty macColl was killed.June 30, 2010 at 3:36 am #10622
At the current gold price, your octopod costs £243,650, I very much doubt that my SFS will cost as much as that, and remember, you cannot step out of your seastead and go for a walk, so you need more space at sea than you do on land, if only to find a little peace and quiet from your family once or twice a day.
You also need space to grow food, generate electricity, collect, store, and purify water, space for waste treatment, if you want to be mobile, you will have 2 huge diesel engines plus fuel tanks, more general storage than you need on land, and probably more for things you will not realise you need until you need them.June 29, 2010 at 7:38 pm #10615xns wrote:
ssteve, isn’t tour perception of a single family seastead basically a houseboat?
King Shannon of the Constitutional Monarchy of Logos.
No, I imagine a single family seastead to be at least 20metres by 20 metres square or in diameter, and three storeys high, not cheap but spacious enough to not feel like a prison.June 22, 2010 at 3:01 pm #10535
If a nation wanted to take control of a seastead they might start with a cyber attack, planting incriminating “stuff” on seastead computers so they had a “ligitimate excuse to come in and do whatever they wanted, if that fails a special forces team could come aboard unseen and sabotage necessary equipment, a blockade intended to starve the seastead into submission would also be effective.June 12, 2010 at 2:39 am #10446
It depends on what the seastead purpose is, I would expect most single family seasteads to be in coastal waters, under the protection of a recognised state.
Commercial seasteads will be as close to their customers as possible, only the largest seasteads would be in international waters, doing things that might be illegal in territorial waters or simply evading taxes and ultimately becoming a sovereign state itself.June 12, 2010 at 2:31 am #10445
The only seasteads that need visitors to provide a medical report and DNA sample should be brothelsteads.
Can you imagine a medical sevices seatead rejecting people who are not in perfect health?June 12, 2010 at 2:12 am #10444
OK, I almost read to the end of this thread, but cannot resist the urge to comment any longer.
When I run my own seastead, I will not require the extreme forms of ID suggested in this thread, I will only require a fingerprint, I will back up this system by paying everybody to inform on everybody else.
I will sell tickets to executions and auction off the job of chief executioner, one of the perks of this job will be that they get the offenders possessions.June 8, 2010 at 3:40 am #10387
We could organise bicycle races on the water.http://www.youtube.com/watch
The waves will be a real challenge, and it may come down to the last person to fall off their bike being the winner.

It should be possible to build artificial islands using natural species of plants, start with a reed raft on which to grow the various plants that will become an island. it will take years but should not require GM.June 4, 2010 at 3:47 pm #10373
