For what it’s worth, new here.
I’m wondering what the most feasible option currently is for sea-steading/gulf-steading/living on the water?
I’m in the SF bay, so what I see around me is Sausilito Houseboat Community, a group of people who are squatting with their sailboats on unpatrolled ocean a little north of here and large scale art projects of various kind (waterpod, swale, ephemerisle – some of which I’ve participated in).
I don’t understand why the focus isn’t on peninsular outcropping from the land into the water? There’s a Marina on 5th Avenue in Oakland with a complicated history / they just seem to be hanging on, gentrification-wise, but I’m curious if it would be possible to just keep extending their dock.
I guess I’m also saying that I’m ignorant about the regulatory frameworks around the bay, and want to figure out how to investigate that more. Any advice? Other than going to these places, and talking to people?
