Pacific Ring Weave

I believe that’s a logistics problem.


#136

You are probably right.

Any idea how to solve this logistics problem?


#137

You’ll find logistics problems, and worse, in any construction site.
Having the construction site on the water can save you a lot of trouble.

permits for start:

To do aquacultures within US EEZ: (US = United States), (EEZ= Exclusive Economic Zone)
(EEZ extends to 200 miles(nautical) from shore)
NOAA, (USA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration:
http://www.westcoast.fisheries.noaa.gov/aquaculture/index.html

To build a structure to do aquaculture on it within US EEZ:

To avoid FDA (Food and Drug Administration) (USA) I would say I want to grow kelp for
animal feed.

The dept at the location is 400 fathoms = 732 meters.

Planning to use quoter cut strips for mooring lines. 1 tire gives 4 strips.
1 strip is about 1 meter, 1 tire makes 4 meters.
TC-100 by Butty Manufacturing can cut an estimated 1000 tires per day.

732 meters would take 183 tires. The numbers seem to work out.


#141

You will need a big winch to pull so many tires up. It will be heavy too. 1-2 tons.

Or maybe you just never pull it up.


#142

In air it might weight 1-2 tons. But immersed in water it might not.
Specially if the mooring line is designed with floaters along to be able to make
a floating line or a sinking line. It could be designed to make it neutral buoyancy line,
and the force to pull it up might be much less. Inflatable buoyancy balloons might be
a better choice than a winch.

Just a thought. I might be wrong. To never pull it up is a good idea anyways.

But to able to move things into the high seas is a priority, so you are on the correct path.
In this case the high seas would mean out of EEZ, so more than 200 nautMiles from shore.

I am planning to buy a boat again. This time it is on a trailer.


#144

What kind of boat?

I finally found a tire source. Right now they have a lot of large truck tires. They will let me take them for free. Do you think these are useful??


#145

Hi;

The difficulties with the large truck tires is that there is steel mash in the sidewall too.
To make rings (belts) the steel mash has to be cut. Regular car tires have no steel mash
in the sidewall. It is much easier to cut the regular car tires.


#146

The body of the message seems unclear. (my message)


#147

Well, I am glad, that the things I posted here, are still here.
I might have one more practical idea:

I tried to close the full scale woven sheet into a tube. It was difficult, and I did not succeed.
Closing to a tube might require more than one person, and more space.
It is difficult to roll the sheet into a tube and to hold the tube rolled up for closing.


#148

Using sidewall and strip cut quoter rings would use all the tire.

There has been a long term study conducted on tires immersed in sea water. The study
concluded that after 42 years tires constructed of polyisoprene and immersed at a depth of
80 feet showed very little degradation. Analytical tests on the tires identified that the tire
rubber absorbed enough water to equal 5% of its mass.38 Concentrations of rubber,
carbon black, sulfur, zinc oxide, mercaptobenzothiazole, and stearic acid were within
±10% of those that would be found in the original tire composition. Antioxidants were
also analyzed in the tires, but any loss of these compounds could not be confirmed. The
iron bead was also analyzed. Trace metals were detected, indicating the bead was a mild
steel, and no oxidation appeared to have occurred.

more tire linking in pictures:
The intention is to use the whole tire, and incorporate the rims into the links.
