@Octavian | I would not take the discussion of boxy versus round or the discussion modular raft up versus continuous freeforming to a religious plane, where we cast tons of ink on it, without comming to a final conclusion ever.
It is not about A versus B - it is all of it - in a combination that is convenient and economic to build.
The good thing is that we don´t have to come to a final decision by discussion and consolidation here either.
The decisions what methods and proposals are a go and which ones a no go will neither be taken by TSI nor on this forum.
It will be taken by markets, investors and moneystreams who will decide which proposal of ocean colonization flourishes and which goes down the drain. So relax, do your thing, work the markets rather than the heated forum discussions.
If you promote boxy lego style island raft up you should be aware of the destiny of the Mullberry Harbor and the lessions this engineering disaster gave us. You should also be aware why the next project in the evolutionary line the Monaco Floating Breakwater project is 352 m and 175 thousand tons as engineering understood how size matters when rafting up boxy things that move with the waves in storms in close proximity. If you have read up and absorbed that, and still believe in the concept - go ahead and do it - and tell me how it went.
