From Seasteading

I think modular should be moved from absolute to negotiable. If the seasteads did not connect, but could keep from bumping into each other that would be good enough. Connecting would be nice, but if it makes things not affordable it should be tossed. Vince Cate

Not being an oil rig relaxes a lot of the extreme restrictions they bear: on an oil rig sparking metals are banned from many usages and all heat sources (for cooking, mainly) are paranoidly isolated and are always electrical. They have heavy redundancy requirements on most equipments, which we would not need as much if we got several seasteads clumped together and not a single platform. They also have as little living space as they can afford to leave for the crew, IIRC, that's another big difference - unless we consider a seastead as a floating workshop designed specifically for whatever comparatively advantageous business it conducts. -- Jesrad
