This isn’t an RV park, or campground, it’s going to be a homestead and shipyard. Thing is, until it gets built up, it’s just dirt and weeds at the back of a small neighborhood, in a small town. There will be low fees, to cover a variety of necessary expenses, but not at marina and dockyard rates and providing services unavailable at marinas.
I would assume you want security, so that funding has to come from somewhere. Onsite bathrooms? Ditto. That launching ramp, when you finish building? Gotta be built. Long-term parking for those offshore, mail and supply deliveries that have to be sorted and stored? All sorts of things that don’t just happen by themselves, but, I’m going to carry that mortgage and that is 85% of the known costs, not counting the addition of everything else.
You’re space? Well, it will need storage, so you’ll need to provide that. When finished, you can donate a shipping container you no longer need and the next people don’t have to buy it, but fencing and gates have to come from somewhere. Pavement isn’t free, some custom rig to lift, carry and launch your project? That’s not going to appear out of nowhere.
I did not and will not ask TSI for some instant shipyard, when there may be some for sale for millions of dollars, but unsuitable for what we’re trying to accomplish at family-scale. This is a completely DIY project with the goal of supporting Seasteading in the Gulf of Mexico.
In addition to working on the property, I expect to take some time, developing and building my own projects. I want to get offshore, too, but my end is far more involved than going out and anchoring, or tooling along to the Caribbean, or Hawaii, or wherever.
