Intended Incubator Site as Complete Support Base of Operations for the Gulf of Mexico

Consider this: they didn’t build that house while tilted at 15 degrees, neither did they pour the concrete for the cassion. So they took some time and effort to tilt the assembly to the ramp while avoiding cracking it in half. I’d have avoided that step, i’d have kept it level.

Unless they put it (level) on an engineered set of steel trusses and then tilted/lowered them into the water.

At some point, they lifted the house onto the steel structure they used to float it into the water. As it is a relatively small structure as either houses or industrial marine applications go, they probably just used a travel lift and some dunnage and slings. 70 tons is kind of a common minimum travel lift capacity, with multi-hundred ton lifts being available as well.


That grid-encased assembly is a heat-exchange plate assembly for their heat-pump…!

I accept your decision, though I do not see the reason.

Now, there you go. Some actions could be in the background too, or
may be the bot is set like that.

The forum is often polarized. I do not want to pick side.
I just quietly work on ringweave technology

Best regards to all;

I should have read more about this idea earlier. I am definitely interested in using a support base at some point. Ideally it would be located on the Pacific, but it’s not like there are a lot of options out there.

I think I will sign up, so long as there are no obligations at this point.

That’s all good and proper for a commercial farmer, but what if your seastead just happens to always have free-roaming wildlife flourishing around it, and you aren’t feeding it?


Be careful what you fish for?


Thursday afternoon (~1PM Central), I will be presenting to the 1st Board of Directors, on my plan for the current property location. If they approve, I can begin proceedings to purchase it.


Punted the ball…

HOA Board was griping about stuff they don’t have rules for… yet…

So, I contacted the Chamber of Commerce in the 3 counties to choose from. See what comes up.


Latest prospect and layout concept:

Intended Incubator Site to come, build and launch. Speculative design based on using a 55 ft free-space mobile gantry crane, building four 100 ft drive-through RV slots (technically space for 8 RVs), each adjacent build site equipped with 40 ft shipping container storage. Launching slip at foot of property, along a channel with waterway access to the Gulf of Mexico. Circle drive designed around truck deliveries, with Quonset Hut and covered loading/unloading bay/dock and small machine shop for metal/plastic/wood fabrication.

Different plot of land?


Same one I sent you in email, no longer the HOA. I went back and re-scaled it for more accuracy, plus avoiding the known flood-prone area along the river. My wife and I had a look-see during the heavy rains, last weekend.

Still waiting on the County. I don’t think anyone has ever approached them, asking about a specific tract. They don’t seem to know who deals with that, or how.
