We want the parts to come in a 40 foot container. But after these are put together the seastead is a big thing so driving down the road could be trouble. We may make the first one small enough that it can go down the road but future ones will probably be too big for that. So we want to think about building the seastead next to the water or on the water.

By Vince's House

We currently expect to assemble our seastead next to our house. Probably we will use a crane to load it on a truck, drive to the pier in island harbor (maybe Sandy Hill Bay), then have crane lift off truck, then we attach the legs, then crane puts on the water.

There is some chance a crane could launch from our house, or we might make a temporary ramp, or some rolling platform, or something.


We could build on a beach or next to a harbor and then launch it. We will probably have heave-plates at the end of the legs. We could put ship launch airbags under the heave-plates and roll it down the beach into the water. We may use some cheaper rollers that can do the same thing, like boat bumpers, or even sections of telephone poles. As one came out the back we could carry it around and put it in front.

Possibly something like an old car (engine and fluids removed) under each leg that rolls down into the water.

We are puchasing land so now expect to launch from a beach.

Yacht Crane

There are machines that are perfect for launching yachts, like Yacht Crane but Anguilla does not have one of these and we probably can not justify the cost, at least not early on.

Barge Launch

We might put it together on a barge in Road Bay. Maybe a small crane on the barge to help. Then we will use a crane to position pieces and bolt them together on this beach on top of some old telephone poles. Then when done we will roll it into the water. We may put the legs on after the main platform is in deap water.

Building Seasteads on Seasteads

Eventually it would be ideal to be able to build Seasteads out in international waters on Seasteads. We might have a platform that could increase the length of the chains to the floats and so go under water, to make a Dry Dock. This would make launching a new seastead very easy. Neither the dry-dock-seastead or new one would be finished out with things like motors, solar, batteries, etc. So they would be part of a seastead train while being worked on and get power from other Seasteads in the train.
