Minimalism: just do it. Just build something. Something new.

Go ahead Wil, although do you mean the already published or the many specs in the pipeline?

Offshore Cove or Haven in initial stages

Floating Island Harbor / Breakwater City
(Wilfried Ellmer) #405

The Picture the Ramform thread was opened to give concept lead Architect Matias Volco | @Matias | a platform to display his artwork and inform the interested public about the concept …

It is NOT a thread for meta topics ranting etc…

Everybody who is not interested in the concept, or has nothing to contribute, is cordially invited to stay off the thread and work his prefered “other topics” in seperate threads he opens.

@ellmer - thread starter.

Small family size ramform

Floating marina sized Ramform - aproaching from the wave protected lagoon.

Ongoing construction of floating homes in the wave protected lagoon…

Growing from Marina size to Floating City size.

  • Seasteading begins on the coast

  • Ramform Island is a replication of a coastal feature

(Wilfried Ellmer) #415

• The structures and shapes used successfuly in todays marine business are the “working models” for the shapes of the seasteads of tomorrow - it is just a matter of “scale up” …

• Seasteading does not need to be invented - it is “out there in many forms” already…

The structures above illustrate the principle of a bow against the waves and windfaning as seastead design key features - only structures above 400m size can survive the open ocean in storm condition without a bow pointing against the waves.

Floating docks, sandbanks, and barges, are only suitable for VERY protected waters…unless they become so big that even a Draupner Wave is a “small wave” compared to the size of the structure …

Portunus (last line of pictures) marks the transition point where a size that can start to skip the bow (even in open water) is reached . (Portunus features a reduced and rudimentary bow but is designed as offshore project)

Combi-Dock and Combi-Lift semi-submersible vessels only look ‘U’ shaped, because tthe dry-dock is partially flooded, with the gate open, to allow float-in/float-out. There is a full hull, beneath that water…

Ramform Hyperion is Launched
March 22, 2017

PGS has completed its newbuild program and has a fleet that is stronger than ever. Ramform Hyperion was celebrated in a naming ceremony at the Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Shipbuilding Co. yard in Nagasaki, Japan today.

Matias Volco designs are better suited for a stationary use with a better protected lagoon feature…at the end we do not look for a efficient survey ship - we look for a seastead.

Note the (articulated) train configuration of the arms to reduce hog/sag forces…

  • it is a similar base principle but a different approach…for a different use.

It is supposed to be a harbor, a marina, a living space, rather than a towing ship…and it is designed to be contiously expandable to grow with the community - what is also a bit different - that should not be so hard to understand…hopefully… google it here

(Edited by moderator- no more insulting people. Ignore, refute, counter, but no insults or you need to leave)

context: Seasteading is underevaluated as investment field | need to change things |

And, again, I wish you good luck.

The technical parts of the ideas, I think, is good.
Execution of the ideas; I see zero. In this one we are equal.
I do not like the monetary planning.

Other than that: I wish all good luck!

Off topic. You complain about that enough, live up to your own standards.

(Chad Elwartowski) split this topic #522

A post was split to a new topic: Modular Extension/Connectors/Cellular expansion


So, I happened to come across this, just minutes ago…
Gingerbread anyone?
