@ellmer The point he is making is: THIS is not YOUR forum, nor your personal advertizing space FOR your forums, OR your schemes. If you HAD those investors, you would NOT be in here, begging for attention and then demanding money from those that you convince to join.
NOW, back to the topic of military on seasteads…
Consider design principles employed, even by Leonardo Da Vinci (and, YES, he even designed several Forts). Controlling access, and defensive posture are the primary purpose of a Fort.
A SMALL position could be well defended by a single person, or very small group, depending on the size of an attacking force, and their goals.
It has to be assumed that the object is command and control of the vessel, otherwise, sink it and be done with it. Pirates want ransom, terrorists want publicity, possibly hostages, and may want to use the vessel in a greater attack role.
In the adaptation of a vessel capable of handling major storm activity, I am trying not only to emulate the known capabilities of the Ramform, as designed by Roar Ramde, and proven in the North Sea, but as part of that, following the design principles of Frank Kowalski and Safehaven Marine, which makes modest military patrol vessels capable of rolling completely inverted, self-righting, and continuing the mission.
Some of that is structural integrity. Part of that creates a more defensible position, since there are a limited number of openings, all facing aft, and the only forward openings are sealed compartments, and the armored glazing for the cockpit/control-room/cabin. Aft hatches are reinforced and completely securable from within.
Further, many modern sailing vessels have multiple command and control consoles. Some are designed such that a command override from a secured cabin can operate the entire vessel from within a sealed and armored vault-like structure, comparable to an inner citadel, within castle fortifications.
A properly designed vessel can be made that is fully operable, by a single individual, in all foreseen situations. Certain automated motor/sailer yachts also follow that design principle.
