    Like I noted, we cost too much.

    But that is not the reason I remain skeptical of these "seasteading" plans...the sea is one of the most heavily regulated and monitored and controlled areas of the planet. It is the last place I would set up a stationary vessel or platform to try and gain freedom.

    Samuel Johnson once wrote, "Going to sea is like going to prison, with the added chance of being drowned."

    He turned out to be more right than he imagined.

    I think the plan is to have it permanently anchored in one place.

    Seems like it would have to go into dry dock once in a while for maintenance.

    Yes I mentioned that on the first page. What I meant by this post was it would not be cruising the world.

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    According to the video Matt posted about the old lady who cruises all the time, it's about once every 7 or 8 years.

    I think damage is worse on a stagnant ship than one that is moving. Barnacles and other stuff doesn't collects faster and doesn't come off as easy.

    I was thinking about this earlier today. There is probably a better approach. If a Not For Profit purchased a huge compound, school, hotel, someplace big that has closed down and renovates it into a tax free haven for its residents. I would say that is better than being in the ocean probably bound by more laws than the not for profit would be.
