• 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)

- the end of the grounded state |
context: seasteading better than landfill - get investors to seasteading projects | make seasteading investment worthy | change discourse | politics less is more |
