  • To keep your paradise look, to your 30m wave handling, you should try using a natural looking beach system, that will let your patrons enjoy the natural waves lapping on the sides, and when the time comes, you still have the safety you need. Even if you need to have an oddly shaped 30m high berm to your beaches, you can have tunnels lead through…[Read more]

  • Where do you plan to be your best place to put this resort? You want it safe from as many storms as you can, you want it in a temperate climate, you want it where there is a good money flow…
    .
    There are few places with all these needs, but which one is best?
    .
    From the charts I have seen, around the equater is best.

  • Not purely for survival, but for caring for your customers, while making the aesthetic values improved by the plants who happen to produce food that you use in their food, and your own. Growing a large chunk of your total food on site, will bring down your life and death dependency on shipping food into your stead.

    A simple 12m sphere would be…[Read more]

  • Per the image you posted, you could use basic dock floats for most of it. hvae some custom made ones for the building, but otherwise, you should be able to build something of that scale and type, with relative ease, for a low cost.

    Before seeing this thread, I was talking to shredder about this kind of build. Something that you can market for…[Read more]

  • The square meter models you have been using to calculate how much is needed for growing food, are out dated, and based on soil, that has been proven to be inefficient, while being limited to a 2 dimensional growing style better left to 50 years ago. Using a 3 dimensional aquaponics system, with hydroton in a deep water bell siphoned system, you…[Read more]

  • In growing your food on your floating system, you are looking less at monetary value, and more at having the nutritional value, along with the esthetic value, if done right.
    .
    How would you start a day tourism system? I see day cruises out here in cali, that seem to make only enough to keep themselves afloat through the winter. If you mean…[Read more]

  • Underwater+dry=unknown
    .
    This has me rather perplexed. Good job.
    If you would like some answers to what can be done in this “field”, than you will have to give some criteria. Do you want it to house boats or subs? Do you want it to rise to the surface, or stay at a stable depth?
    .
    Looking at shows like Sea Quest, I dont see it being an issue to…[Read more]

  • I feel that one of the cheapest to start, would have to grow it’s own food, to save money on shipping goods to itself. I have been working on trying to buy an economic ship with enough space to house enough “field” to make enough food for it’s own crew. Needless to say, that is not easy math to work for, when trying to balance it at it’s peak. As…[Read more]

  • It is a good point, that mining towns we started as homesteads, that grow into towns, based purely on one resource. when that ran out, there was no reason to stay. A mobile one, will be able to fallow those resources, keeping itself alive.
    .
    Stationary steads will have to be tapped into as many things as it can, to keep itself alive, and avoid…[Read more]

  • You guys are only just getting to this? Shredder has been going on about this since I first talked to em. Though, he doesnt like the natural look, he does aim for the epic end up resort living though.
    .
    My first ideas for floating islands, was the tropical type, with their building hidden below, to make the best of the natural look, for the resort feel.

  • Looking at more than a ranking system that can be hammered out later, I think this is probably our best round about definition of a sea-stead.
    .
    If we try to continue from here, we will likely head back into our pointless arguments…

  • Spark, use your time as best you can, at all times. I am here when I can be, to give aid to those who can do, what I cannot. I would like to be the one that heads out first, but I know that i have to take care of my family first. I will be riding on the coat tails of the first guy out there. Till that time, I will do all I can to get them there…[Read more]

  • I am biding my time, for now. I work my ass off at work, make plans, figure out the best ways to do things, while I wait for my brother to get a job, so I have an option to save up, to live on a boat. My time is being wasted more by others, than myself. I am making the most I can of it, with what can be done. Though most of you are wasting your…[Read more]

  • Alot of the paperwork catch 22, has been shown to be a local thing. The guy living on his trash island in Mexico, has proven this to be so. If you have your “wacky” idea built, take it down there, float it, then ask em to inspect it. Once you have it approved there, you can bring it where ever else you need, for approval.

  • Hence, aiming for the flags of companies, rather than just the flags of countries. Using that name, to not be harassed, along side maybe getting better deals, would be of benefit, alongside a country’s flag. The mix, could keep you out of far more conflicts.

  • Ocean, there is no reason to keep using small blocks, when making city scales structures. At our scales, using cinder blocks sized blocks, are fine. We are still testing. Making a 30′ hull out of cinder blocks, would be a task… but, it may bear enough fruit, to be worth it in the long rung. If back yard diy cinder blocks work well enough for…[Read more]

  • Still, running the right “flags” in the right places, will give you more to work with. Putting up an ibm flag in the right port, may get you better deals, or the like.

  • It is not that I dont approve of your idea. It is that due to the name you are using, I have my doubts. If it floats, Id like to help how ever I can.
    I do question how you plan to link the larger block made out of the smaller blocks, once they are at sea. Using concrete becomes quite a bit harder, when the totality of it is floating…

  • Even trying to use the term “ENLIGHTENMENT IDEAS”, is rather ;limiting, when you look at the potential types of sea-steads. Using a class system will let you be able to figure out what kind of bucket you need, for what they call a sea-stead. we know we cant nail it to the wall, but atleast we can find a bucket for it.
